(Statepoint) Holiday shopping season is in full swing and making sure everyone gets the best tech gifts while you snag the best deals is likely top of mind for you.
Nearly 80% of Americans plan on gifting tech-related products and services this year – with the top gifts being headphones and earbuds, smartphones, streaming and downloading services and gaming consoles, according to this year’s Consumer Technology Association report.
The good news? You don’t need to break your budget in order to make your loved ones’ season bright. Here are some affordable tech gift ideas to please everyone on your shopping list.
For Affordable 5G Smartphones: If your loved one has a 5G smartphone on their holiday wish list, you are in luck! T-Mobile and Metro by T-Mobile offer the latest affordable devices. T-Mobile’s REVVL 6 PRO 5G is developed in collaboration with Google, making 5G more accessible to everyone at a time when saving is a priority for Americans. Priced at $219.99, it’s free when T-Mobile customers add a line. Another affordable option is the OnePlus Nord N300 5G, retailing for $228. For a limited time, T-Mobile customers can get the Nord N300 5G for free when adding a line and Metro by T-Mobile customers can get it for free when switching. These are worthwhile gifts to consider this particular holiday season because right now, for a limited time, T-Mobile is bringing back a deal that hasn’t been available in more than two years -- four lines for $25 per line per month with autopay for unlimited talk, text and data, which also includes 5G access.
