Relay price drop: More savings for you, more safety for the kids
November 15, 2018
It’s a screen-free smartphone that keeps kids connected so they can play more and go further. It’s a GPS tracker that lets parents feel secure in their kids’ newfound freedom. It’s Relay—and it’s more affordable than ever.
More Relay for your money
We know that customization is important for families, so now every Relay is priced at $49.99—so you can save $50 or more per order and get as many Relays as your family needs at an affordable flat rate.
Why did the price drop?
We want our members to be happy, to have a great time with Relay, and to feel their voices are heard when they speak to us. We heard that many families who made a Relay purchase were coming back for more. But after purchasing a Relay pack, paying for another single Relay would have been more expensive in the long run. We want adding Relays to your account to be easy and fun, not a math problem. Also, we found that more and more families are opting to buy a single Relay for their child, and using the app for themselves. After listening to our members, we decided to make Relay pricing simple, straightforward, and a better deal for everyone. We’re taking the price per Relay from $99.99 down to $49.99, and changing Relay’s monthly service to $9.99 per month from $6.99. If you’re already a Relay member, don’t worry—we’re taking care of you. We’re issuing credits to members who have already bought a Relay, plus we’re extending their $6.99 per month service rate for an additional 12 months. If you already have a Relay, check your email to see the money you’re getting back, or get more details here.
The best time to become a Relay member
Relay is more affordable than ever. You’ll save the cost of a pricey, highly breakable smartphone and even pricier cell phone plan. ($40-$50 per month on average—no thanks!)Plus, Relay is getting better every week. We’ve released a long list of improvements including GPS tracking from your Relay app, a growing list of Relay channels (like music playlists and language translation,) and big upgrades to coverage and battery life. At half the price, there’s never been a better time to get a Relay.
