I LOVE the Zubie Car App!!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Zubie for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I honestly love the Zubie car app! It has become such a party of my day I don’t know how I got along before it. I can check my Zubie app to find out when my hubby will be home, what’s going on diagnostically with the car and much more. I’m not a parent of a teen but I can image how valuable this app would be.

Zubie is the ultimate road trip buddy! I’ve been using my Zubie key for the last  8 weeks and I love that it tracks where your car is, where it has been and how it’s been driven. Like for example, I know that my husband and I both have a Hard Brake problem!!

The Zubie app lets you know what’s going on with your car and that is really helpful. I haven’t had any issues with our car but I am always checking to see that all systems are “GO”. But, as I said before my favorite feature is the tracking. It’s incredibly valuable to know where the car is, how long it will be before someone is home, and where the car has been.

I love my Zubie and it is definitely a great gift for a love one. You will love having the Zubie Key in your car.

Hi y’all!  Have you tried the new Jimmy Dean Delights breakfast options?  They are DELICIOUS!  We all love them, even my 5 year old daughter who is a super picky eater!  Jimmy Dean Delights are a perfect quick and easy breakfast that is high in protein and at under 300 calories each they are a great low calorie option.  It’s wonderful for the weekend morning mommy rush!

There are several delicious options to choose from. Turkey, Egg and Cheese on an English Muffin, Canadian Bacon with Egg and Cheese on a Honey Wheat English Muffin, Egg Whites with Spinach and Mozzarella on Honey Wheat Flatbread, and Cinnamon Glazed French Toast and Turkey Sausage Griddlers, just to name a few.

I’m having a Zubie New Year, are you?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Zubie for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

A few weeks ago I told you about the new Zubie app and Zubie key that connects you to your car to help monitor your vehicles, diagnose repair problems and take the hassle out of daily driving. Now that I've had the chance to use my new Zubie for a few weeks I have to tell y'all….I LOVE IT!

Not only does it check and inform you diagnostically about your vehicle but it also lets you know where your car is (perfect for teens that borrow the car) and how you care driving. After 16 years of "Oh my gosh, stop braking so hard, you're making me nauseous" I was more than happy to show my husband that the Zubie also thinks he brakes too hard!!

Can you tell someone was running late to choir practice at church?? 

It's also nice tracking the vehicle and knowing just how long you have before you have to change out of your PJ's and start dinner. 

I noticed I have a few "hard brakes" and a few "rapid accelerations" and knowing that helped me be a little more cautious of my driving.

I haven't had any engine problems to report. It's nice to know that everything is running smoothly.

We named our car the Storm Trooper because it's white! 

Installing the key was very easy and downloading and using the app is easy to do as well.

You can get a new Zubie key for your car and have a Zubie New Year, too! order today with code SAVE20JANand SAVE 20% on one year of Zubie always-connected car service and a free Zubie Key. A great way to use your Best Buy and Amazon holiday gift cards!

Offer good through February 28, 2013. Shipping charges apply.
