SPRING FORWARD with the BlueSYNC RST

RST-variation1Across the United States, deals, price slashes and discounts are abundant, especially throughout the holidays. There are Christmas, Thanksgiving, Black Friday, President’s Day Deals and more! If there’s a holiday, you can bet your wallet that there is a deal to go along with it.

Despite being an integral part of our lives every year, the Daylight Saving ‘holiday’ has never been given the proper deal it deserves. We took to the streets to interview the public and find out the reasoning behind this. After days of careful analysis, we found that the main concern was that people lacked trust in Daylight Saving because of the misleading name. Many argued that we are not actually saving any daylight so why reward the day with a special deal when it has lied to us for all of these years?

Despite the backlash, we at GOgroove, being the trendsetters we are, plan to take the deal to a place it has never been before – Daylight Saving Time! Starting 2/29 and running all the way to Daylight Saving, 3/13, GOgroove is offering an unprecedented deal to help you ring in the time change. Visit the GOgroove BlueSYNC RST Amazon Ad and use promo code CLOCKRST at checkout to receive a $20 discount. Get your hands on the BlueSYNC RST for only $39.99!!! Now that’s a deal worth springing forward for!

TheRST-variation2 GOgroove BlueSYNC RST is more than just another run-of-the mill alarm clock; it also functions as a Bluetooth Speaker, FM Radio, USB Charger and viewing stand. Dual alarms allow you to set different wake up times with FM or tone alert, and even feature snooze and sleep functions. When you need to charge, you can set your device on the built-in holder and use the 1A USB charging port with your phone’s charging port.

However unfavorable Daylight Saving and its faulty name are to most people, let’s try to look on the bright side – it brought you the deal of a lifetime! Thank GOgroove, thank Benjamin Franklin, thank whoever, just make sure you take advantage of the first official Daylight Saving Deal!

There is plenty more where that comes from so keep your eyes and ears peeled to GOgroove.com and be sure to LIKE our Facebook Page for company news and other great deals like this.

Bargain Brawlers Celebrate Black “Eye” Friday

Black FridayBlack Friday is here! We have officially stepped into the holiday season, and with that comes intensive bargain hunting, fancy lights and music, and of course the natural urge to stuff our faces with as much food as possible. It’s the holidays… Why not?

But where did this term ‘Black Friday’ officially come from? And if it’s considered Black Friday, why do doorbuster deals start on Thursday?

Last night, as I sat in massive food coma, watching “Survivor,” the greatest reality television show of this generation, there was an internal battle raging inside me: Do I break tradition and shop for Black Friday Deals on a Thursday or do I take a stand and wait for those Friday deals like my ancestors and their ancestors before me? Needless to say the food coma took precedence and I pushed my shopping back until today.

So back to the original question: Where did the term Black Friday come from? Legend has it that the name came from the large amount of black eyes suffered  by these “bargain brawlers” trying to get a deal on the latest tech items. It was originally called Black Eye Friday until 1971, when the “Eye” was dropped from the name and officially became Black Friday. Although we completely made that story up, it almost makes sense no?

But on a serious note, let’s revisit the question we’ve continually failed to answer: Where did it come from? One theory links the name back to retailers, who claim that after an entire year of operating at a loss or ‘in the red,’ they would turn a profit and go ‘into the black.’ A second theory links the name back to 1869 and the crash of the U.S. gold market. Two financiers planned to buy up as much of the nation’s gold as possible to drive up the price and make themselves a large profit. Unfortunately this plan failed and sent the stock market into a large free fall, eventually leading to that day being named Black Friday. Although both seem plausible, the real origin of ‘Black Friday’ comes from the Philadelphia Police. They created the term because of the commotion that would ensue the day after Thanksgiving due to large amount of shoppers as well as tourists coming in advance for the Army-Navy football game played that Saturday. These same police officers were not allowed to take this day off and even had to work extra hours to deal with the traffic, crowds and large amount of shoplifters. By 1961 the term had gained traction in Philadelphia and later was reinvented nationwide sometime in the mid-to-late 1980s.

Now that you are completely caught up or simply just bored with the history lesson we’ve put you through, let us make it up to you with a weekend-long slate of deals! Visit the GOgroove website to take advantage of 15% , 25% , 35% and 45% OFF deals on select items. Remember, there is free shipping on all orders over $35! Don’t get stuck sleeping in tents, freezing as you wait in long lines or fighting off crazed shoppers trying to get a doorbuster deal on a very limited selection. Visit www.gogroove.com today for hassle free bargain hunting and a great experience every time!

Thanksgiving: The Stuffing of Facts You’ll Need to Impress Your Family

turkeyWith another holiday upon us, you may start to realize that not only are we the best one-stop-shop around for electronic accessories, but also the best fact checkers and joke tellers this side of the Mississippi. We not only appreciate the recognition but want you to know how seriously we take that job. As Black Friday continues to creep further and further into the Thanksgiving Holiday, we have a moral obligation to provide the facts and jokes needed to celebrate Turkey Day, before it passes by faster than the last piece of pumpkin pie. With that said, let’s get to it!

  • Contrary to popular belief, there was no turkey served at the first Thanksgiving. Historians say that the menu most likely consisted of deer, duck, geese, oyster, lobster, fish, pumpkin and cranberries.
  • Corn is considered one of the most popular symbols of Thanksgiving. It came in a variety of colors including red, white, yellow and blue.

Thanksgiving Joke #1 :

Q: What kind of music did the Pilgrims like?

A: Plymouth Rock

  • 91% of Americans eat turkey on Thanksgiving Day.
  • Wild Turkeys and Farm-Raised Turkeys have different flavors. With wild turkeys, almost all the meat is dark and has a stronger turkey flavor.
  • On the West Coast, Dungeness crab is a common alternative to turkey as the main Thanksgiving dish.

Thanksgiving Joke #2:

Q: Why did the cranberries turn red?

A: Because they saw the turkey dressing!

  • A scared turkey can run at speeds of up to 20 miles per hour. It’s also said that they can reach flight at speeds between 50-55 miles per hour.
  • Thanksgiving created the TV dinner. In 1953, in response to the enormous amount of turkey Swanson had left over, a salesperson came up with the idea to package it onto aluminum trays with other sides.

Thanksgiving Joke #3:

Q: What is a turkey’s favorite dessert?

A: Peach Gobbler!

As the holidays kick into full swing, it always helps to be reminded to be thankful for the things we have. We wish everyone a safe and filling Thanksgiving Day and look forward to the madness that will ensue during Black Friday and later, Cyber Monday. Happy Turkey Day, and with that, we leave you with one last final joke…

Q: Why can’t you take a turkey to Church?

A: They use FOWL language!

El Niño is Coming… Get Your Essentials Here!

BlueSYNC-RGD_Hero_V2Winter is coming! For some, it may seem likes it already here. And with this winter season comes the phenomenon sweeping the nation. No not Star Wars; we are talking about El Niño! El Niño you ask? Yes El Niño, “the oscillation of the ocean-atmosphere system in the tropical Pacific having important consequences for weather around the globe.” In layman’s terms, it’s going to rain an awful lot across the southern tier of the United States.

What does this mean for you?

  • Shopping for a water-resistant wardrobe
  • Drought stricken States will finally get some water on their dying lawns and plants
  • Time to invest in IPX Rated Equipment

You have another question? What is an IPX Rating? It stands for Ingress Protection and it’s a rating that states the level of resistance your gear or devices have against water, dust and impacts. For matters of El Niño, we will be focusing most on the water-resistant side of the IPX Ratings.

Boasting an IPX4 Rating, the GOgroove BlueSYNC RDG Bluetooth Speaker is the best El Niño speaker on the market. It is water resistant, surrounded by thick silicone and will take a beating while still playing your favorite tunes. This strong IPX4 Rating makes it perfect for El Niño conditions: rain, wind, floods and humidity!

gg-bluevibef1t_mainFor those brave souls planning to bike and jog through the storm, we have an IPX6 water-resistant Bluetooth sports headset for you. The GOgroove BlueVIBE F1T provides comfort, durability and style as you battle those harsh elements.

Whatever you choose, the El Niño is coming and now is as good a time as any to stock up on IPX Rated products. For those of you planning on hibernating throughout the winter, we have a great deal running until this Monday! Use promo code ‘HDXSOUND’ to receive a $5 discount on our brand new GOgroove AudiOHM HDX In-Ear Headphones. They’re ultra-durable, feature soft gel earbuds and a noise isolating design, and even include an in-line microphone. Secure yours today www.gogroove.com.

Happy Halloween! Tricks, Treats and Spooky Jokes

Halloween-FB-Profile-GGWith Halloween lurking around the corner, like your neighbor’s creepily masked kid trying to frighten you as you get home, can you think of a better time for another fun, insightful and fulfilling blog post about fun facts and warnings of the upcoming holiday?

We didn’t think so! Sit back, relax, read on and enjoy the eerie knowledge we plan to cover you with, the same way those teenage kids cover your house with toilet paper for passing out dental floss. Breaking News: They prefer candy.

  • Halloween started in Ireland and originated from the Celtic end-of-harvest festival of Samhain. This festival consisted of lighting bonfires and wearing costumes to fight off evil spirits.
  • It is feared that on Halloween the boundary between the living and dead is blurred as both walk amongst each other. Humans therefore wear masks and dress up so the spirits do not recognize them.
  • Orange and Black are the main colors of Halloween because orange represents the harvest while black represent the death of summer.

Cheesy Joke #1: Why don’t skeletons go to scary movies?

                                  They don’t have the guts!

  • Trick-or-treating started from the superstition that ghosts could disguise themselves as humans that knock on doors for food or money. It was believed that if they were denied, the spirit would haunt that human.
  • Black cats and witches are forever tied together because it was once believed that the cats protected the powers of the witches.
  • Halloween only trails Christmas as the highest grossing commercial holiday!

Cheesy Joke #2: Why do mummies have trouble keeping friends?

                                  They’re too wrapped up in themselves!

  • The White House is haunted! Most ghost sightings are that of Abraham Lincoln. Spooky!
  • The Michael Myers mask from the horror classic ‘Halloween’ is actually a $2 Star Trek William Shatner mask. The crew was on a tight budget so they reshaped the eye holes and painted it white to achieve the creepy look you know and love today!
  • The heaviest pumpkin in history weighed in at 2,323 pounds.

Now that you’ve been educated on the holiday, cheesy jokes and random facts, we want to wish everyone a safe and Happy Halloween. Remember you are too old to be trick-or-treating if you ask for high fiber candy and are losing breath going from door to door. Never trick-or-treat in deserted towns, houses with bloody chainsaws outside or near people summoning demons! Enjoy.

Final Cheesy Joke: What do vegan zombies say?

                                         Grrraaaiiinnnnsssss!

(You’ll thank us later when you are the life of your Halloween party with these great jokes… Happy Halloween!)

Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Beyond

CaptureAs Breast Cancer Awareness Month comes to a close, we urge everyone to remember that this battle started in ancient times and STILL continues to rage on today. The disease has been mentioned in almost every part of recorded human history and we are still without a cure. Remember to always be mindful and understanding of those affected, while providing the necessary support for those in need.

Every October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month; a time to increase awareness, raise funds and remind everyone about early detection. This month was founded in 1985 as a way to endorse mammograms as one of the best defenses against the disease. The pink ribbon didn’t become the universal symbol until 1991, when the Susan G. Komen Foundation passed out the ribbons at the New York City race for breast cancer survivors. Today the pink ribbon and month of October are heavily tied into Breast Cancer Awareness.

As mentioned before, this disease is not something specifically important just in the month of October. It should hold heavy importance and significance 12 months out of every year. There are many sites dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness. To learn more about the disease, see what you can do or simply donate, please visit any of the following:

https://www.nationalbreastcancer.org/
https://ww5.komen.org/
https://www.cancer.org/

We stand behind all those affected. #BreastCancerAwareness

MUTANTS. THEY’RE ALL AROUND US!

GGBSRST100BKUS_MainMutants. They are defined as an “organism or new genetic character arising or resulting from an instance of mutation, which is a base-pair sequence change within the DNA of a gene or chromosome of an organism.” Mutations are seen as an important step in the process of evolution.

When you think of mutants, I’m sure the first thing that comes to mind is the X-Men Comics or Movies. In addition to those fictional mutants, there are many real life mutants living amongst us. Finnish Olympic skiing champion Eero Mantyranta had a mutation which resulted in his ability to carry 50 percent more oxygen in his bloodstream, essentially giving him super endurance. Actor Marilu Henner has a mutation called hyperthymesia which allows her to remember every detail, big or small, of her entire life. One of the craziest mutants in the animal kingdom is the platypus. The platypus is equipped with a duck bill, beaver tail, otter foot and the ability to lay eggs, all while boasting intense venom capable of causing severe pain to humans. Points being that many mutants still walk alongside us today!

Why all the mutant talk? In the last few weeks, we at GOgroove came to the realization that we too have a mutant walking amongst us; the GOgroove BlueSYNC RST. On the surface it looks like your run-of-the-mill alarm clock. You couldn’t be more wrong. In addition to telling time and waking you up in the morning, the BlueSYNC RST functions as a Bluetooth Speaker, FM Radio, USB Charger and Viewing Stand! The RST features NFC capabilities, A2DP and AVRCP for high-fidelity audio transmission, plus onboard controls for pairing, volume control, pause, play, and even answering / ending a phone call. At second glance, this kind of puts the platypus to shame huh?

With mutants on your mind and the RST telling time, take this opportunity to get your hands on one of the most well-rounded mutants of our time. Like all GOgroove products, the BlueSYNC RST is backed with a 3 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty. Find all the information you need on the BlueSYNC RST and other GOgroove products at www.gogroove.com.

4th of July Fun Facts

family celebrating 4th of JulyAs many across the nation work their last day of the week, it may come as a surprise that today should technically be the real day of Independence. July 2, 1776 is the actual day that the Continental Congress voted for Independence. To take it a step further, John Adams even wrote that July 2nd would be remembered and celebrated throughout American History. You are probably pretty upset you had to come in to work on such an important day in American History huh? Well to ease your pain and to get you into the holiday spirit, we’ve provided you with even more fun facts about the 4th of July… Hmm, it almost doesn’t have the same ring to it now.

Fun Fact #1: Thomas Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence on a “laptop.” In those times a laptop was considered a writing desk that would sit on the writer’s lap.

Fun Fact #2: There were 200 copies made of the printed version of the Declaration of Independence, which was originally called the Dunlap Broadside. Only 27 copies are accounted for today.

Fun Fact #3: In 1870, as part of a bill to officially recognize other holidays such as Christmas, Congress declared July 4th an official unpaid holiday. In 1939 Congress changed the 4th of July to a paid Federal Holiday. THANK YOU CONGRESS!

Fun Fact #4: The 4th of July is the biggest hot dog day of the year. An estimated 155 million hot dogs and 700 million pounds of chicken are consumed on this day.

Fun Fact #5: To avoid further damage, the Liberty Bell has not been rung since 1846. For symbolic effect, the bell is tapped 13 times on the 4th of July.

Fun Fact #6: In 2012 the U.S. imported $227.3 million worth of fireworks from China. In comparison, the U.S. only exported $11.7 million that same year.

Now that you are caught up on the history of the United States and fireworks sales from 2012, we wanted to wish everyone a safe and happy 4th of July weekend. Know that fireworks can be dangerous and should always be handled responsibly. There are some states **cough cough California** that are desperate for water, so let’s prevent as many fires as possible this summer. Remember, only you can prevent fireworks fires. Happy 4th of July!

2015 NBA Draft #NBADraft

Basketball-draftV2Two months ago we provided you with a NFL Mock Draft of the ever popular GOgroove Groove Pal Speakers. With the majority of those players participating in NFL organized team activities or OTAs, it was slim pickings for tonight’s NBA Draft. We searched the globe looking for the best and brightest the hardtop had to offer. When you’re on top of your game, only the best will suffice! We needed someone who was aggressive on the backboards, had good ball handling skills and range from three point land. We were hard pressed to find anyone better than the GOgroove Pal Bot Speaker. With a 64 inch vertical and handles that would make the Professor blush, there is no doubt the Pal Bot Speaker will be chosen first overall in tonight’s NBA Draft.

The GOgroove Pal Bot not only boasts range from the 3-point line but impressive range of sound. It features two dual drive stereo speakers paired with a passive subwoofer to give you a performance not regularly seen from today’s NBA talent. A long-lasting, rechargeable Lithium polymer battery ensures this speaker will last deep into the 4th quarter. No substitutions required! The compact and portable construction gives it the ability to dribble-drive through the paint and finish with style. The movable arms and glowing LED eyes strike fear into the hearts of any opponent daring enough to try and guard him. We anticipate many teams trying to trade up to draft the Pal Bot, but only one will be lucky enough to land such a hot commodity. Tune in tonight to find out!

For more information on the GOgroove Pal Bot Speaker and his Draft status, visit www.gogroove.com.
