If you are in the market for a new cordless phone system, Amazon has a great deal on right now for you. Get the Vtech DECT 6.0 four-handset cordless phone system with digital answering machine and handset speakerphones for only $62.99, with a regular price of $89.99.
I recently chucked my cordless phone system as three out of four of the handsets no longer worked. They either wouldn't stay charged, had fuzzy reception or you couldn't dial on them. I'm sure this is from a few years of abuse by my children, but either way, I was getting tired of running for a phone, only to answer it and it would die. This deal is perfect for our family as we only have one phone jack set up in our house. I could put the main set in the kitchen, then the other three would go in my office, my husband's office and in the living room. Although, its not like I'll find the handsets there. I usually used to find all four handsets in the kitchen for some reason. Its a good thought anyway.
The answering machine is also a nice touch if you don't want to pay extra for voice messaging on your phone. I also like that it has speakerphone, as this is the easiest way for my kids to speak to Nana, since they don't have to put their sticky fingers all over the phone and she can actually hear them even when they are holding the phone upside down.
Amazon offers free shipping on orders over $25, and this phone system definitely goes over that threshold, so enjoy this perk on top of the price.
