Hushed Private Phone Number Lifetime Subscription: $49 (Orig. $300)

Tired of dealing with unwanted calls? Hushed is a service that provides you with a disposable phone number so you can avoid unwanted connections. 9to5Toys Specials has lifetime subscriptions for $49.

“A viable, more lightweight alternative to something like Google Voice.” TechCrunch

Hushed covers hundreds of area codes across North America, and once you’ve created your number, it is fully operational for talking and texting. Instead of filling in your own number on forms, you can then use your Hushed number, meaning that you can still receive helpful customer service without being subjected to sales harassment. The Hushed app (iOS and Android) lets you destroy your secondary number at any time, and set up call forwarding and voicemail. This plan includes 1100 SMS messages or 500 phone minutes per year, and the app can utilize Wi-Fi when making calls to cut down on service charges.

  • Get a total of 1100 SMS or 500 phone minutes per year (North America 365 Plan)
  • Make calls and send texts from a private phone number without monthly fees
  • Choose from hundreds of area codes across the US and Canada
  • Manage your communication from a single app
  • Customize your voicemail
  • Set up call forwarding
  • Utilize Wi-Fi or data while you chat so you don’t incur service charges

The deal gives you one lifetime number at 83% off the standard price.
