Deal: Nexus 7 WiFi 16GB for $103 at Newegg, after rebate

Posted by wicked August - 21 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

Nexus 7 (2013)

(Update: Newegg increased the price by $30.)

The deals keep coming for the Nexus 7, last month it was $130, this week we see a refurbished 16GB Nexus 7 WiFi model for just $102.99 over at Newegg.

The deal is the perfect storm combination of sales, deals, offerings and discounts. This rock star Nexus 7 tablet runs for $229 regularly, the refurbished version is down to $169.99, Newegg is offering a $50.00 rebate card with purchase. Add to this a limited time promotion with VISA Checkout to get another 10% off by using the promo code VCO at checkout to get you down to just over $100, not bad at all.

VISA Checkout is the credit card company’s attempts to keep up with other online quick pay solutions like Google Wallet and PayPal. It appears the 10% discount is site wide, until August 25th, saving you a maximum of $20 off your purchases.

Nexus 7 has been a great device over the two generations of the device. Many first generation users are still very happy with their tablet, but don’t worry, Newegg’s deal is for the 2013 model of the Nexus 7. If you’ve not heard of this thing yet, it is a well equipped tablet with 7-inch 1920×1200 resolution display, Snapdragon S4 Pro processor at 1.5GHz, 2GB of RAM, a fine selection of sensors and connections and 5MP rear camera all on top of the latest version of Android with guaranteed updates until Google says otherwise.

Check out our review of the Nexus 7 for more details on the device.

Love for Tablets has been dwindling of late, due primarily to the popularity of larger form factor smartphones all the way from the OnePlus One and LG G3 through to the soon to be announced Samsung Galaxy Note 4. However, the Nexus 7 has been finding new uses in our world, just this morning we discussed an initiative with Toyota that places the Nexus 7 into the dashboard of your next Toyota car.

At just over $100, the Nexus 7 is a steal of a tablet, if you are good with refurbished electronics, of course. This may be the perfect device and time to equip the student in your life for the upcoming school year, or just put a couple away as Christmas presents. Either way, head over to Newegg before August 25th to grab yours.

For those in our Android community that have not yet snagged a Nexus 7, is this the deal that you’ve been waiting for?

Verizon offering extra gigabyte on new plans or phone upgrades

Posted by wicked August - 18 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off

verizon-logo1

Verizon continues to work on enticing new customers or getting users to upgrade existing devices, this time by offering some additional data. Customers who activate a new smartphone or upgrade to a new smartphone and opt for a MORE Everything plan will be provided an extra gigabyte of data for the first two years. Users do have to select a MORE Everything plan with at least one gigabyte of data. Currently, a 2 GB account costs $50 per month, so using this offer a consumer could get the same 2 GB for the cost of the $40 per month fee for 1 GB. Users would have to factor in the line access charge though which currently runs at $40 for a smartphone.

This move is in addition to Verizon’s new single line package that was announced over the weekend. Under the terms of that offer, users signing up for a single line plan could get a 2 GB data allowance to go with unlimited talk and text for only $60 per month.

If you are interested in taking advantage of this offer on a MORE Everything plan from Verizon, hit the source link.

[Deal] Amazon Fire TV marked down to $84 for limited time

Posted by wicked August - 13 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

Amazon-Fire-TV-flat-with-remote-popcorn

The Amazon Fire TV device is one of the more expensive solutions for consumers looking for a media device to hook up to their television. The normal $99 price is not entirely unjustified as Amazon does make their Amazon Prime video service available through the platform and the game support is relatively strong compared to other devices. Amazon even makes a dedicated gaming controller available for $40. Amazon also built in voice control capabilities as we have all seen Gary Busey demonstrate.

Now, for a limited time, Amazon is offering the device for only $84 dollars. Hit the source link if you want to take advantage of this deal. There is no indication as to how long it will last.

[Deal] Take 40% off all Huawei accessories through August 18

Posted by wicked August - 11 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off

huawei_accessories_sale_august_2014

You may not own a Huawei device, but I am sure you could find use of its accessories. On its online store, Huawei has a coupon code that takes 40% off of its accessories. This includes a charging cable, a case for the Ascend Mate2, a mini boom box, a car charger, earphones, and portable battery packs.

The most valuable accessory here that you can purchase on sale is a portable battery pack. The Colorphon 3 Power Pak packs 3000mAh and the Colorphon 5 Power Pak holds 5000mAh. Both come in a few different color choices and feature LED indicators for its battery. The smaller capacity portable battery pack costs $39 before the sale and the larger one is $49 without a discount. Portable battery packs can run expensive depending upon the size, but Huawei is definitely offering something good here.

The coupon code is HW40OFF and must be applied at the checkout. If more than one item is purchased, it still applies to the entire order rather than just one of the accessories.

Lumsing’s Samsung extended batteries on sale for as little as $10

Posted by wicked August - 4 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off

lumsing-battery

One of the biggest advantages to Samsung smartphones is the presence of a removable battery, in an era where many manufacturers have moved over to designs that feature non-removable batteries. A removable battery slot means you can not only swap out your dead battery for a backup, you can even expand your phone’s battery life through larger extended batteries.

Extended batteries admittedly can add a little more bulk and weight to your device, but they are worth it when you need a little extra battery power to get through the day. With this in mind, Lumsing is offering a sale on many of its 3rd party batteries for the Samsung Galaxy S4, Note 2 and Note 3. Most of the batteries will set you back $9.99 , though it’s important to note that you’ll also have to pay shipping costs unless you are either a Prime member or have spent at least $35 or more.

Without further ado, here’s the full list of deals available on Amazon:

Moto G LTE on sale for just $179.99, via Best Buy

Posted by wicked August - 4 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off

Motorola Moto G aa 8

When Motorola first released the Moto G, it was obvious that the budget handset market would never be the same. Even now, well over a half year later, it’s hard to find another budget handset that offers so much for such an outstanding price.

On the downside, the Moto G lacks expandable memory and support for LTE, though in March a special LTE variant was released that addressed both problems, priced slightly higher at $219. For those looking for a steal, however, Best Buy is currently offering up the Moto G 4G LTE for just $179.99, the same price you’d normally pay for the non-LTE Moto G.

moto-g-4g-lte

As you might expect with such an enticing deal, there is a small catch. Those ordering on Best Buy’s website won’t be able to have the device shipped to their door, as Best Buy is only offering up free site-to-store shipping. This means you’ll order online but you’ll have to physically pick it up at your nearest Best Buy. For those looking to save nearly $40, a trip to the store is probably more than worth the effort, though.

Best Buy is selling the Moto G 4G LTE in two colors, black or white. No word on how long this deal will last, so we’d probably move on it quickly, if you’re at all interested.

[Deal] Motorola offering up to $125 off Moto X — deal expires next week

Posted by wicked July - 18 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

Moto X Sale

With the Moto X scheduled to become a relic later this year, Motorola has some devices to get rid of.

To clear out stock, the company is offering a discount on the device through its website. Just add a Moto X of any color/storage size/etc. to your shopping cart, and add the coupon code “MBXISMOT.”

With the code, you’ll get $100 off the price of the 16GB model. It’ll only cost you $299.99 instead of $399.99. You’ll save $125 on both the 32GB and 64GB variants. The 32GB phone will cost $324.99 and the 64GB phone will cost $374.99.

This is a really good deal if you’re into getting a relatively old Moto X (which is still a perfectly good phone). Hop on the offer by the middle of next week, though, since it expires on July 23.

Deal: Nexus 5 16GB (in Any Color) for $334 on eBay, With Free Shipping

Posted by Kellex June - 6 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

Nexus 5 deal! In a daily deal on eBay, you can pick-up Google’s latest Nexus smartphone (maybe their last, too?) with 16GB of storage in any color (black, white, or red) for $334. The phone retails for $349 through Google Play, so this isn’t a massive discount, but if you factor in the $15 savings on the phone, plus the free shipping, it actually is a pretty solid deal. Google charges $9.99 for their cheapest shipping option.

As you all know, we love the Nexus 5. In fact, we called it the 2nd best phone of 2013, right behind the Moto X. The Nexus 5 is a phone that both Tim and I couldn’t wait to go back to after reviewing the Galaxy S5 and HTC One (M8). It may not have the best camera on the block, but it runs stock Android, is already on Android 4.4.3, and may be the last of our favorite line of Android phones.
