3 cool tech gifts that can save time and money

We all love technology for the convenience that it brings, but normally that convenience comes at a price. But what about those techs, apps, and gadgets that can actually help you keep a little money in your pocket? Here are three cool gifts for the techie in your life, that can make their life a little easier and put a few bucks back in their wallet.

MoviePass: I love going to the movies and I’m sure you do as well. I’d probably go a lot more often if movies weren’t so expensive. And then I discovered MoviePass. For just $9.95 per month, you can go to any movie at any theater any day you want. The pass covers one movie a day and other than a couple downsides (have to purchase tickets day of, no 3D or IMAX) it’s an absolutely fantastic deal for any movie buff.

PopSockets: How many times have you shattered your phone screen? If you have a hard time hanging on to your phone, you should check out PopSockets. It’s like a pop-up handle that can even be custom designed if you want. Plus, it makes a great stand when you want to turn your phone into a 4” flat screen TV. The PopSocket lays almost flat when not in use, and can help prevent you from having to get your screen repaired or replaced from an unnecessary drop.

FoneFuel Diesel: As cool as technology is, most gadgets these days don’t seem to hold a charge very long. The FoneFuel Diesel can help solve that problem. When fully charged, the Diesel can charge an iPhone 6 from 0-100% 4-5 times. You don’t always have time to find a wall socket, and the Diesel is just what you need to stay on-the-go. What’s more awesome? FoneFuel donates a portion of their sales to “improve education & living conditions with solar technology in underdeveloped regions in the U.S. & abroad.” That’s a great side effect to buying Christmas presents.
