Kinsa is a company that specializes in this new breed of "Smart" thermometers, that interact with your smartphone to document your child's temperature over time and help you make decisions about whether a good nights sleep and a cold towel will do, or if it's time to check in with your pediatrician. Simply plug the Kinsa Smart Thermometer into your phone's headphone jack (either on its own or with an optional extension cord) and launch their free app to see how Kinsa will work for you.
The app has interactive games for kids to stay engaged and patient while the thermometer delivers an accurate reading, and by using your smartphone, Kinsa takes advantage of 25,000X the processing power of a regular digital thermometer. Tapping into the smartphone’s power, processing and display also means there are virtually no electronics inside – and no batteries are required – so the thermometer is extremely lightweight and durable for carrying with you, and is always ready for use.
Now, I get it, we don't use thermometers every day, and $24.99 is a lot to pay for something that will mostly just sit in your medicine cabinet. But I found this great deal on Swagbucks where you can quite literally get the Kinsa Smart Thermometer for absolutely FREE. Here's how it works:
- If you don't have one already, sign up for a free Swagbucks account.
- Next, follow this link to get $5 off the Kinsa Smart Thermometer - $19.99 instead of it's regular price of $24.99. Don't worry, shipping is completely free within the US and there are no reoccurring payments. As I mentioned earlier, the associated Kinsa App is also free.
- Once you complete your purchase, Swagbucks will give you 2000 SB, enough for a $20 PayPal gift card and only 200 SB shy of a $25 Amazon card.
All that bonus might make you forget you're getting a state-of-the-art Smart Thermometer in the process!
