If you live in one of those states that has a Hands Free Law and have already been busted, Jawbone is offering a $20.00 discount. What a clever promotion! Their theory is that “having a conversation shouldn’t be a crime.” You simply put in the state that caught you and the ticket number and your price is lowered.

It comes with a wall charger, USB cable, 3 earbuds, and 4 earloops for $109.00 after the discount.
