Get Peek with Peekanomics: Review, Video & Fab Giveaway!

Hi guys! I am here to talk to you (again!) about The Peek. I have posted here, here and here, or and here too! Oh, how I love this device! Shall I count the ways?tanyapeek

  • I have traveled many miles with my Peek and gotten service just about everywhere I have gone.
  • I admit it. I was working out on my Elliptical and I had my Peek with me. Addict, much?
  • I love how I can be having cuddle time with my kids, yet I can still have my email next to me, without having my computer near, if I needed to check my email.
  • The Peek seems to be a part of my body; attached at the hip
  • I am a text’aholic. I love to text, but I am not in love with the fact that my current cell phone charges for each text after 250 texts. With the Peek, this is all included.
  • I love that the Peek is so easy to get started with, there is not a thick user manual included; it is a “Quick Start Guide”. Why spend hours reading a book on how to use a product when you can easily get started USING your Peek?!

I can keep going on and on about how much I love my Peek and how much I USE my Peek, but .. well, you get the idea. 😛

I wanted to show you some of the Peek, in person, so check out this video if you have a few minutes. This will answer a lot of the email questions that I get regarding the Peek.



If the Peek wasn’t good enough already, there is an option out there that I have not seen anyone else offer: Lifetime service! As you know, right now consumers & business are looking everywhere for ways to save money – including their expensive cell phone bills.  However, as always, it is very hard to figure out exactly what all your cell phone services are costing and what the alternatives are.

Peek has created a website that solves this problem –  Peekonomics uses a clever classroom chalkboard to compare the cost of getting unlimited email and text messages on a Peek to the costs of getting unlimited email and text messages with the four major carriers: Verizon, Sprint, ATT and T-Mobile.

The numbers are staggering – a Verizon customer could save almost $1000 over the life of their contract by using Peek for their email and texting. And to hammer this point home, we’ve just launched a special deal with  You can now get a Peek with lifetime service for only $399.99.

I had to share this amazing deal with you all!

I would LOVE to hear your feedback.

  • If you have a Peek… PLEASE email me your thoughts to
  • If you are looking to GET a Peek, please feel free to email me your questions, thoughts, ideas, etc.

If you are a blogger, the Peek is a MUST! If you are a traveler, the Peek is a MUST!

  8. Heather C says:

    I learned that I can use this anywhere, nation-wide. I get a bit nervous when I’m away from my email for too long (sad!). With this, I’ll be able to sit in the car line at school or wait in the doc’s office and read and return emails! Fabulous!
    p.s. Can you delete one of my comments? My cat decided to send the message just before this one. No tuna juice tomorrow!

  9. I love that it’s a flat rate and I could easily email from anywhere. I really want one of these, it would help me stay in touch with loved ones.

  20. I’ve learned that it’s sold at Target, which is really convenient. It would help me keep track of business emails without having to constantly check my computer. No more feeling like a hermit!

    I learned that the fee is just twenty bucks a month! What a steal! I’d love to have this instead of lugging around my laptop. What a timesaver!

  42. Steve Scott says:

    You can use it through out the US.

  43. I like that I can email from a fairly small sized device I spend 90 days a year on the road and packing this type of small fast device would sure beat having to lug the laptop out and start it up to check email. Even better I could send email when I hit a delay traveling.

  44. I can’t believe I almost missed getting a blog entry in for this!
    Better late than never. I blogged about it here.


  45. Peek is a great way to stay in touch. I learned that Peek is one hell of a gadget for handling texting for cheap.

  46. It seems like a really practical thing to have.
    My best friend and I live in different states now, and
    we keep in touch through email. And my brother is in Iraq and email
    is currently my only contact with him.

  47. In the community section they list dozens of web sites that communicate using email, doing searches, maps, etc. I could use this on the road instead of my smart phone.

    I learned the Peek is available at Target. That’s great because Target is easy to shop.

    WOW! Loving this new info NOW I just have to have one of these! The price @ 49.95 is surely reasonable. My Dtr lives 13 hrs away and we text all the time, and my Son/his family live 5 hrs away, so I’m always texting him and his sweet wife (I have a fabulous Dtr-in-law!) I SOOOO need this! And the E-mail-in my pocket- aspect is so wonderful. I really want one of these now, even MORE than the Kindle!

  70. This sounds like a wonderful system. Currently I don’t have a text messaging service because of the cost. The affordability and the fact that the coverage is so broad are excellent features. It’s becoming more and more apparent that I need to have easy access to both the internet and the ability to email and receive emails from others. The Peek sounds like it might just be the right ticket!

  78. Oh this would be awesome to have to use when I am at work-we’re not allowed to use the computers there for anything personal, and when I get home my inbox is so jammed, it is so time consuming to sort through everything.
    And there is no contract to lock into-yay!


  79. also, as a college student, this would help me keep it touch with my peers without finding a computer to check my emails.

    I subscribed to your newsletter.

  80. Nationwide coverage…awesome.

  81. I have your button

  82. Jill Miller says:

    The Peek has nationwide coverage. This could really help me because we own a cabin in the mountains where we do not have service on our cell phones.

  83. on the go checking your email.
    God bless

  84. Mommy Goggles, thank you for the video post and your information presented on the Peek. I have owned many cell phones in the past (about 30 @ one time). I am really excited to have my children use a peek device instead of a cell phone.

    Children if given a chance will be able use a device like this and stay connected with friends and family. My daughter just turned 4 and she has an ipod touch and can use it with out my help. She even bought a game. I had to enter the password to download the game, but she searched and found it by simply watching me. So with that logic I think I can teach her to repeat the simple steps of the Peek.

    OK I bought the ipod touch for me originally, but after the above story how could I take it away from her. She has favorite games and can even play instruments (cow bell plus) on the touch. I have watched the videos of Amol talking about 1 device that does something well. After a couple years buying many cell phones looking for that device that does it all I can honestly say….. an all in one device does not exist for me:) So I purchased a nice DSLR camera, point and shoot camera, ipod, and a free cell phone. Now I need that qwerty texting device (sorry sidekick).

    Finally I am really looking forward to teach my daughter the Peek. Could be a great way to teach typing to a child:) After devices like netbooks, iPod’s, and the peek’s I can’t see the next generation of children lugging around laptops.

    Peek has started something and I hope they have continued success:)

    Cheers and keep it simple – Stephan

  112. I like the fact that there is no contract. The Peek would really help me out. It is hard to get to the computer to check my email because I’m always chasing after my daughter who just learned to walk. I can just slip the Peek in my pocket and have my email wherever I go.

  113. No need for a contract! I love that. I have my own business from home, so this is perfect for keeping up with business and website inquiries when I am away from home. Awesome, and I love the colors! Thanks soooo much, my birthday is next week so this would be awesome to win!

  122. I’ve learned that you can go anywhere with it. I’ve learned that I’m obsessed with the idea and hopes of having one. I check my email too many times a day to count and sometimes, waiting for an email has actually kept me strapped to the house instead of venturing off…I could surely use this device…PLEASE COUNT ME IN!!!!

  137. I learned that the Peek is available at Target and Costco. In fact, there is a great lifetime Peek deal going on at Costco. I would love to have one of these because my 2 oldest are in college and I have texting for them in my cell phone contract, but not for myself. I would love to have a way to text them because I have noticed they don’t always answer calls, but they do always look at texts (even in class, so they say) This would be a great way for me to know I’m always in touch with them if need be. Thanks.

  138. adrienne Gordon says:

    target sells it, this would be easier than hauling my laptop around.

  139. I placed you banner on my sidebar at .

    By the way, I forgot to mention in my previous post how the Peek can help me. The Peek would help me to be able to get out of the house more without having to be tied down to my computer job at home. Therefore, I could be able to check my email when I’m out and about. 🙂

  140. I’ve learned that they sell this at Target nationwide. 🙂

  141. Elizabeth Ray says:

    I could check my email without being chained to my desk. (I don’t have a laptop computer, only a desktop.) This would allow me to spend more time with the family, but still get my work done.

  142. It will let me get my email anywhere and only costs $49.95

  143. i subscribe

  144. with this i would not need to carry my laptop with me to check my email that is cool

  145. I learned that it is usable throughout the U.S. with full nationwide wireless coverage.

    I prefer texting to talking.

  146. Peek’s got nationwide coverage! That’s awesome! This would help me because I tend to use email more than the phone (I am NOT a “phone person”) – so I would love this!!

  147. I subscribe

  148. I think the peek can help me to save money and time. I am always wishing for more time to spend with my daughter

  149. I found out it runs about 19.95 a month for service and that it has nationwide coverage.
