Peek subscription fee halved in one day sale

Peek's recent TwitterPeek may not have met with the glowing reviews the company might have hoped for, but the original email-centric Peek (and newer Peek Pronto) are still decent examples of how a single-purpose gadget can suit a lot of people.  Now, to celebrate Cyber Wednesday (and yes, we know it's usually Cyber Monday), Peek have slashed subscription costs: what yesterday (and on Thursday) will cost you $19.99 per month will now be just $9.99.

That price is the same for the life of the device, which since you can pick up a Peek Classic for $19.95 means the total two-year cost of ownership is $259.71.  That's pretty much a whole order of magnitude less than some smartphones, once you've factored in the initial purchase price and a typical two year carrier agreement with data.

Of course, at that point we'd also be looking to the Lifetime Service Peek Pronto, which for $299.95 gets you no monthly bills whatsoever.  If you're keeping your Peek for more than two years then it makes sense to go with the Lifetime option, frankly.
