While long-time AP readers probably all know what PuGoo is, those who've only discovered the site within the last year or so are probably wondering what the hell we're babbling about. In short, it's a "specially formulated tacky pad that sticks to most surfaces, is reusable, leaves no residue and is extremely durable." I took that directly from the PuGoo website, so it should be a pretty accurate description.

So, what can you use it for? Lots of stuff. Artem actually did a good write up on many of its uses back in May of last year, and everything he said there still holds true. It's powerful stuff – go read his take for some ideas.

Back? Great. Usually, PuGoo runs $10 a pad, but for a limited time, it's going for $5 per pad. For those who don't want to do the math, that's fifty percent (otherwise known as half) off. So, two for the price of one. Or one for the price of half of one. Whatever.

Anyway, supplies are limited, so head here to pick some up. You'll love it.

    Great deal on a great product, but $4.68 for shipping on a $4.99 product - sorry but HELL NO!

    This is something that can be placed in an envelope with a $0.46 stamp (based on US domestic shipping rates).

    • Lou Hoffman

      Agreed....that's crap. I'd buy a few otherwise.

      • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

        It's shipping and handling, there is labor involved in shipping for a small shop, remember?

        Just buy a few and each pad will not be so expensive, definitely cheaper than before sale price.

        • keddren

          Limit one per order...

          Edit: Nevermind. I was able to order four.

          • Adewale Adelusi-Adeluyi

            Yes you can order as many as you want till we run out of the allotted number for the special. Thanks

        • Adewale Adelusi-Adeluyi

          The shipping and handling is what Amazon charges for using their platform. We just provide dimensions and weight.

  • Andy Stetson

    +$4.68 shipping :(

  • Clint P

    Wow, that shipping is a bit pricey. However, I ordered 3, so the shipping ended up not being that big of an issue.

    • KcErica

      So did they only charge $4.96 for the whole order or was it $4.96 per pad?

      • Clint P

        They charged $5.04 for the entire order.

    • Adewale Adelusi-Adeluyi

      The shipping and handling is what Amazon charges for using their platform. We just provide dimensions and weight. When you order more than 1 set it adds up better. if you order 5 or more we upgrade you to 2 day priority at no charge.

    I bought a combo set of pugoo pads and their mount when it was on sale a while back.... and have yet to really use any of them for anything. I tried them out when I first got them, and it is neat, but I was never completely comfortable using it to semi-permanently mount my tablet to the wall. FWIW, they do seem to stick very well, at least when mostly clean, unless you have a TPU-like material case.

    Edit: For anyone that has one, I'd love to hear what you use it for.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      I use it every time I go to the gym, they are priceless for holding down my phone while on a treadmill, for example.

      • Mr E

        Ha, I just looked through your old post on them to get some ideas! That and the car dashboard idea are cool, but I suspect they'd get dirty/dusty pretty quick in the car.
        My old Touchpad is probably near enough to retirement to finally try mounting it to the wall with these :) Of course, I'd have to take off the case, removing any protection it had... might be time to get a nice bumper case instead.

        • mr.klee

          Half of this pad (I cut mine up) holds the HP Touchpad to the wall. I used to do this all the time in my kitchen for recipes. I let it hang for days and it never came close to falling of. In fact it sticks so well I sometimes was afraid I might rip the back off. Just be careful which wall you stick it to. If it's painted it might rip the paint off (happened next to my bed). Wood, glass, laminated stuff is fine.

          • Adewale Adelusi-Adeluyi

            Glad to see they worked out well for you. Paint it depends on the paint. Artem had an image where the PuGoo beast ripped paint off the walls :-)

        • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

          The good news is they're super easy to clean - just rinse them in water for 5 seconds, and they're as good as new. I do this every time I come back from the gym.

          • Adewale Adelusi-Adeluyi

            Just make sure to let them dry before using again. Thanks.

        • Adewale Adelusi-Adeluyi

          It works great with smooth cases but not with rubber or silicone based cases as those are designed to be non stick items

  • bunnybash

    Well it doesn't ship internationally anymore. So there goes that idea. WTF is with Amazon not shipping this internationally... Someone should do an investigation into why on earth so many companies don't want to take my money!! Australia isn't that far!!

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      I don't know about Amazon, but the company behind PuGoo says too many international orders "get lost" (or people just rip them off). So they don't want to ship internationally anymore, as a small shop.

      • Paul Taylor

        Bloody foreigners, eh? ;-) Still, pity they can't link up with some international distributors. I'm in the UK and would definitely have ordered it.

        • Adewale Adelusi-Adeluyi

          We would love to ship internationally but the most affordable service is USPS 1st class international but with no tracking. If it gets lost we have to replace or refund. As a small company the hits can add up.

          • Andrew Kachaniwsky

            That is a shame. You should consider partnering with a Canadian retailer who can manage shipping and distribution for you north of the border. I would buy a handful of these.. but I can't justify paying as much for shipping as I am for the product itself!

  • http://www.androidpolice.com/author/pamela-hill/ Pamela Hill

    "or those who don't want to do the math, that's fifty percent (otherwise known as half) off." Yet another reason to read AP - Cam does the math for you!

  • Inderpreet Kang

    I need to find someone coming from US to Canada now.

    ".. (otherwise known as half) off."
    No, I wanted a whole pad!

  • Bo

    In Artem's article they were $7.99 with free shipping...

    can you cut them into smaller pieces? Thinking about having a few to mount my old nexus 7 on the wall or something.

    • Adewale Adelusi-Adeluyi

      We have had people cut them into smaller pieces and had success. The key to remember is surface area. The more surface can be in contact with the pads the better

  • duse

    Does this really work as a replacement for a car dock? Easier to stick it to the dash?

  • Dan

    Cool, but available from only 1 seller and that seller has a 70% positive rating? Sketchy.

    • Adewale Adelusi-Adeluyi

      Its only available from us because we make it. Thanks

  • Adewale Adelusi-Adeluyi

    Hello Artem, thanks again for the opportunity to have our PuGoo on your site. We are here to answer any questions your readers may have. With regards to the shipping price on Amazon that is set by them and not us so its always better to buy more than one. Thanks again.

  • Guest

    Anyone think I would be able to combine this with a N5 wireless charger? I'm getting one for Christmas and would like to mount it to my desk. I'm afraid the N5 will fall off when only secured with the magnets and this might be good to hold the N5 to the charge pad + the magnets.

    • Adewale Adelusi-Adeluyi

      DO you have a link or picture of the bottom of the N5 charger so we can help answer the question?

  • JT

    Bought 2

    • Adewale Adelusi-Adeluyi

      Thanks for your purchase JT

  • SladeNoctis

    Anyway to use this on clothing,

  • Adewale Adelusi-Adeluyi

    We have already started shipping the pads and many of you should have received your tracking/shipping email from Amazon. Orders of 5 and more will be upgraded to priority 2 day shipping at no extra charge. Thanks again

    • Andrew Kachaniwsky

      Do you offer alternative shipping options to Canada? Ordering 5 of them isn't as much of a problem as the fact that I can't ship to Canada at all!

      • Adewale Adelusi-Adeluyi

        Hello Andrew, at this time this promotion is US shipping only and we don't have any alternatives in place at the moment for outside the US - maybe the next special. Thanks

    • luag

      Is there any alternative for this international buyer from Indonesia?

      Thanks.

      • Adewale Adelusi-Adeluyi

        Hello Luag, at this time this promotion is US shipping only and we
        don't have any alternatives in place at the moment for outside the US -
        maybe the next special. Thanks

    Coffee is the world's second-most-traded commodity after oil, and Starbucks (SBUX) and Dunkin Donuts (DNKN) are the two leading coffee chains that compete fiercely for the loyalty of coffee drinkers all over the world. http://bit.ly/19wtETm

  • http://www.facebook.com/lucyparanormal Daniel Tiberius

    I use this every day in my car. Highly recommended.

    • http://tonybullard.com/ Tony Bullard

      Can you cut one down to fit in smaller area of your dashboard? Or does it need a lot of surface area to stick securely?

      • http://www.facebook.com/lucyparanormal Daniel Tiberius

        I use about half of one or slightly less, so you'll be just fine as long as you clean it every week or two.

        • Adewale Adelusi-Adeluyi

          Glad you are enjoying the products and thanks for answering the questions.

  • John Petersen

    Has anyone tried these for the HTC One? I'm wondering how well it would work with the curved back, since the contact surface area on the phone would be much lower.

  • Jesslyn Hendrix

    I wasn't thrilled about the shipping either--kind of a bait and switch, but it didn't look so bad after I got two.

  • Adewale Adelusi-Adeluyi

    As of 11am this morning we have shipped out all orders that came in by 10am. Check your amazon messages for your tracking details. We are here if you have any questions. Thanks again.
