1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Hey everyone,

    Proud owner of the Galaxy S3 since August. I consider myself to be a power-user, so I'm on my phone pretty much always. Since that is the case, the battery in my phone lasts me all of about 4-5 hours. But I discovered a little trick today that I wasn't aware was possible, because Verizon isn't supposed to tell you about it:

    If you have any kind of employer discount for Verizon through the company you work for, a lot of times you actually get a special "Accessory Discount" through them as well.

    Well tonight, I went to the Verizon store with a friend and he was getting stuff taken care of with his phone. The sales rep asked as we were leaving "Can I get you guys any accessories or anything?" She showed me the portable battery packs (4000mAh) for $79.00. I went and saw they have a 9000mAh pack made specifically for Samsung Galaxy devices (Includes a standard 11-pin phone cable, as well as the 30-pin tablet cable) for $99.00. I was very interested, so I asked "What kind of deal can you cut me?" while not expecting more than a laugh. She actually looked me up, and gave me a 25% discount because of my line discount. I walked out paying $74.00 for a $100.00 portable battery pack. Now I can Ingress to my heart's content.

    To those who don't know, the standard S3 batter is 2100mAh. This pack will charge my phone 4 times + before I have to recharge it.

    TLDR; Asked for a deal, unexpectedly got one, and a GOOD one at that.

    Just goes to show, it never hurts to ask. :)

    I also got 25% dc from Verizon store by bringing a friend of mine who works at LG. (Bit ironic that I brought LG guy to get DC on buying Samsung stuff)

    Anyhow, my galaxy s3 battery lasts only bout 2-3 hrs max, I don't know what the heck's wrong with it. I guess I'll just have to wait to get my hand on the Galaxy S4!!

    You going to buy a new phone because the removable battery in your S3 is flaky, yea ok, have you tried a new battery, they are really cheap, you can get a two pack for like ten bucks on Amazon out eBay.
