Sonic Alert Alarm Clock review/giveaway!

CLOSED!

ever since i started sleeping with my husband (yes, actual sleeping) i've noticed one thing. he sleeps the sleep of the dead.

that's right- atomic bomb? ::snore::
really effing annoying alarm clock? ::snore::
my screaming? ::snore::
and most recently, baby crying? ::SNORE::

yeah- how someone can sleep through the shrill sounds of both an alarm clock & a screaming 7 month old is beyond me- but he can.

so when Sonic Alert contacted me & asked if i'd like to review one of the their alarm clocks i said "heck yes!"

so i took a look at their site & the first thing i noticed was that their alarm clocks include a vibrating bed shaker. what is that you ask?

well, by plugging in the bed shaker & placing it underneath your mattress, not only will the alarm go off @ 4 am but your bed will also start to vibrate. that's right- you might be able to ignore the alarm but can you really ignore the bed vibrating? me thinks not.

so we tried it out- i picked this alarm clock:



because it has dual alarms and i get up before the hubs (ie: one can go off at 4am & one can go off at 6am- your choice)
and set it up.

well when it went off the next morning at 4am the hubs couldn't ignore it. he turned it off and promptly glared at me. SUCCESS!

BUT- what's also really cool is that you can turn the actual alarm off & just have the bed shaker go off instead. i think this is a fab idea for co-sleeping & bed sharing parents.

while the alarm is loud & obnoxious (like it's supposed to be) and will probably wake up Jr. the bed shaker isn't. it's an obvious vibration that will wake you up- but it's not disruptive.
alex sleeps in our bed some mornings & she didn't even open her eyes when the bed shaker went off!

it really is an awesome alarm clock. and because it's so loud, it's great for those that are hard of hearing...and teenagers. heh.
and there are tons of clock options- here's a few:

analog clock

heart shaped clock

travel sized clock with a travel sized bed shaker

black & red Sonic Bomb
and the list goes on. they even have one that you can set to go off whenever your phone rings! and the large large display clocks (like the one i chose) have great big numbers but are actually a really decent size (ie: not tiny & not massive) so it fits right on the windown ledge & i'm never squinting to see what time it is.
SO! do you need to wake up in the morning? do you need your significant other to wake up in the morning but you want to stay asleep? do both you & your significant other need to wake up at different times? do you need your 15 year old to get their butt in gear in the morning?
if so- then you probably want one of these bad boys! so the good people over at Sonic Alert are going to make that happen for one of my readers- yay!
you get to choose from any model (excluding models SB1000/SB1000SS)

I think the analog clock is nice. It is classy enough, but, very functional.

C'mon! I totally need this alarm clock. It would be totally sweet if they could make the bed vibrate when the baby cries. Cause I'm getting in a bad habit of simply turning the monitor down instead of getting up to get her in the mornings... Yikes.

I like the large display duel alarm one. What a great idea, a vibrating alarm! I'll have to tell my mom about it (she is 70% deaf)

My husband desperately needs this. I think the phone signaler alarm clock would be awesome because enen if he happened to sleep through his alarm while traveling he would definitely wake up when I called him 20 times to make sure he's up.
