American Eagle Free Smartphone Promo

American Eagle has an awesome new promotion going that will land you a free smartphone! If you try on a pair of jeans at an American Eagle store, you will receive a code from one of their employees to redeem for a free phone plus a $25 AE Money Card. The promotion is only for customers who try on jeans between July 21 – August 3. Read the AE Press Release here for more information.

The catch is that you have to sign-up for a two-year contract with one of the selected carriers. The carriers listed on the promotional website I visited were: AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon. I believe each state has different phones to chose from and different carriers. American Eagle claims there are 40 different phones to chose from including Blackberry and Android phones.

Note: The promotion may be different in each state. I only saw 5 different phones including: Motorola, LG and HTC phones on the website I visited. American Eagle claims to have 40 different phones to choose from including Blackberry. When you chose a phone they will ask you for your zip code to see if you have coverage in your area.

Featured Phones Available (*The website I visited)

*HTC Aria

*LG Ally

*Motorola Cliq XT with MOTOBLUR


*Motorola DEVOUR Silver

There may be more but I did not see them.

Fox Mobile launches BitBop for Blackberry

Fox Mobile launched a new subscription based television service called BitBop. BitBot is similar to Hulu. BitBot allows the user to watch full-length TV shows from Discovery, Comedy Central, CBS, MTV, Fox NBC, A&E, FX, and USA. The full-length feature will be available later in the year. Watch shows like Dirty Jobs, new episodes of Futurama, NCIS, Survivor, C.S.I. and much more when you want.

The service is only available on Blackberry phones for now. The BitBop App is free to download but the catch is that you have to pay $9.99 per month to watch unlimited streaming of your favorite shows. Downloads are limited.

The service can be accessed through 3G or Wi-Fi. If you own a Blackberry you can download BitBot now in the Blackberry App World but again, full-length movies will not be added until later in the year. I see negative feedback on the App already but give it some time.
