5 Tips to Save Money this Summer with Technology

Posted

(BPT) - With summer in full swing, the last thing you want to worry about is overspending on your summer fun. Look for ways to cut back on everyday expenses so that you can use those savings to create memories.

From organizing a movie night to buying new sunglasses for a day at the pool, here are some savings tips to fuel your summer adventures.

Host DIY Nights

Skip going to the theater and create your own movie night from the comfort of your home. With popcorn, a TV and some friends, you can easily turn your space into a memorable watch party experience and save money at the same time.

To step up your DIY game, plan out themed watch parties. Challenge your friends to create gourmet meals as you watch the new season of The Bear or plan a series of baseball-themed competitions as you cheer on your favorite team.

This summer, stream all your favorite series like the Office or Stranger Things. With its debut of Xfinity StreamSaver, which combines Apple TV+, Netflix and Peacock Premium into one low-cost offering, there are many entertainment options from which to choose — you’ll be binge-watching all summer.

Beat the Heat

Stay cool this summer! Call your friends and plan a day at the beach. Or if spending the day in the sun isn’t your style, ditch the heat wave by staying inside and livestreaming a sports game.

No matter how you choose to beat the heat, you’ll stay connected with your family and friends with reliable internet services.

Share with Friends and Family

The best way to cut costs is to share with your loved ones. If you’re in the mood for an ice cream sundae, why not split it with a friend and save money at the same time? Try to make homemade ice cream by looking up a recipe online. By finding ways to share this summer, you’ll also be finding ways to save.

Consider sharing your mobile plan with the family to save costs, like getting two unlimited lines with Xfinity Mobile for only $60/month. Once you have your new mobile phones in hand, do a quick search on “How to cut costs” for additional tips. With access to more than 23 million Xfinity WiFi hotspots, you can get coupons and money-saving shortcuts while on the go. Even with your mobile needs, there are endless ways to share and save.

Go On a Scavenger Hunt

Having reliable mobile service makes it easy to plan your summer adventures. Consult Google to make a bucket list of local hidden gems or try geocaching to find hidden treasures.

Outside of a scavenger hunt, it’s smart to always be on the hunt for rewards programs to save you money. Many chain restaurants and retail stores offer rewards programs to get free products. For Xfinity customers, you can participate in Xfinity Rewards to get deals on movies, theme park experiences, and more.

Travel Light

Forty percent of Americans are planning to travel more this year compared to 2023, according to a survey by Forbes Advisor.

For those planning to travel, pack light to save money on checking your bags at the airport. Focusing on the essentials will make traveling easy (plus you’ll have room to bring back souvenirs).

NOW is another great option for value seekers who only want what is necessary in their internet, TV and mobile services. With no fees or commitment to an annual contract, it’s a great prepaid and affordable option for people who want the basics.

To Sum(mer) It Up

Make the most out of your summer and put your internet, mobile and TV services to work for you. As the days are heating up, so are savings on technology you use every day, which is why you should consider signing up for Comcast’s Xfinity this summer.
