Sick of balancing your smartphone over your speedometer while navigating Google Maps or Waze? There’s a more comfortable (and safer) way to do things when you’re on the road, but sometimes you get sick of fumbling with cell phone mounts that are constantly slipping, dislodging or popping off.

Right now, Amazon has slashed prices on WizGear phone mounts — both magnetic and grip-style — just in time for the holidays. Thousands of shoppers say these rugged car accessories have such a strong hold, they can handle “the meanest potholes” and “even the bumpiest roads.” They make a great stocking stuffer and if you snag one today it will arrive before Christmas!


WixGear Magnetic Phone Car Mount

$15$20Save $5
One of the reasons customers are drawn to WizGear phone mounts is the fact that these gadgets don’t use the kind of suction mount that tends to suck...but not in a good way. Instead of sticking to your vehicle’s dashboard, these mounts clip onto your car’s air vents or stick to your dashboard with a magnetic force—and stay put no matter how rocky the road gets.
$15 at Amazon

Just attach the rubber base of this mount to your automobile’s air vent and lock it in place, feeling confident it will hold strong while you wind, weave and turn. Then attach the included magnet to the back of your phone or inside your phone case — then pop your phone onto the ultra-powerful magnetic mount, which you can rotate and swivel to your heart’s content. That base won’t budge. Today, it’s 25% off.

“This is by far one of the best magnetic mounts that I have used,” wrote one shopper. “It is very snappy, and the magnetic hold is strong enough...that running over the meanest potholes cannot deter this magnet from ever dropping your phone, let alone sliding it out of its default orientation.”


WixGear Universal Stick On Mount (2 Pack)

$15$18Save $3
This two-fer deal includes two ultra-powerful WizGear magnetic phone mounts for the price of one. Some reviewers with larger phones are even using both at once to keep their device extra secure.
$15 at Amazon

These on-sale universal accessories hold any kind of iPhone or Android phone you’ve got, but instead of taking up space on your air vent, they use a tiny, mighty magnetized base to adhere to the dashboard.

I don’t know how we ever lived without this!,” wrote one impressed customer. “Georgia has the new hands-free law, so we needed a way to talk on the phone or use navigation without actually holding the phone in our hands or on our laps...You can mount this anywhere. I have mine right by the steering wheel at just the right angle and distance from me. I can voice call on speaker phone or Bluetooth without ever touching the phone. It’s awesome.”


WixGear Car Cup Holder Phone Mount

$22$30Save $8
This innovative phone mount will fit in any sized car cup holder. Simply insert the base into the cup holder and turn the dial, then the base will gradually expand inside the cup holder for a perfectly secure fit.

Not into magnetic mounts? This 35%-off WizGear gadget has rubber-covered grips that wrap around your phone and hold it firmly as you’d hold it in your hand — without scratches or damage to the phone itself. A 360 adjustable base attaches to your car’s cup holder and locks into place, then lets you not only swivel the phone but keep it in either landscape or portrait mode.

"I had previously bought a cell phone holder that attached to the heater/AC vents but found that this mounting application obstructed my view of various controls, so I bought this phone holder that fits in one of my cupholders," wrote one shopper. "This is a perfect application for me. Having the phone located lower and not blocking my view of various controls is much more important to me than the loss of a single cup holder."

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
