    I really like this one from Amazon
    Panasonic KX-TGD535M Expandable Cordless Phone with Call Block and Answering Machine - 5 Handsets
    It has a Nice Call Blocker Feature.

    Looks like your after a Cell phone  ?  (outright)
     
    Check your preferred Carrier
     
    Costco
     
    Sam's Club
     
    eBay & other secondhand ---> meet at the Cell carrier & have them confirm phone is Not Blacklisted / reported stolen or Lost

    There's no one place to get a good deal. You'll want to try all of those venues. Also there buy/sell subreddits. 
     
    Dont forget to do your due diligence and make sure you pay with a trackable method if youre doing the transaction online.

    Cellphone or home cordless? New or used? Some more info would help... For a new cellphone, I'd go Google Pixel (XL) direct from Google so it's unlocked out of the box and not loaded with bloatware from your provider. Even though many providers say you'll get the phone cheaper if you get it through them, what they don't tell you is that you'll be paying a higher bill every month for the next couple of years, and you end up paying more for the phone than you would have if you had just purchased it outright at the beginning. For most everything else I use Amazon, but be wary of 3rd party sellers. EBay is like running through a minefield - about 50/50 chance of getting ripped off blind - that is the place of last resort for me. Newegg I used to like years ago, but these days they are getting overrun with bad 3rd party sellers, and they are not good with returns if something goes wrong.

    Though sometimes these have the biggest risk also. Especially Craigslist in which you would want to make sure to meet in a public location.

    Use an Associates Code & SAVE 5% - 10% on your purchase. Just click on the associates banner to save, or enter the associates code at checkout on your next purchase. If you choose to use my code I want to personally say "Thank You" for using it.
