Motorola Moto X (2014) just $50 on Verizon contract this weekend

Posted by wicked October - 19 - 2014 - Sunday Comments Off

moto x 2014 first impressions (4 of 18)

The Verizon branded brand new Moto X (2014) is on sale this weekend. If you are willing to sign up with Verizon for a two year contract, you can get Motorola‘s latest flagship for half off, just $49.99. This goes for just the Verizon model, the Pure Edition and remaining carrier offerings remain at full price.

Since this is a time limited deal, you best head on over to Moto Maker on the Motorola website right away if you are interested in the new Moto X (2014) for just $49.99 on contract through Verizon.

The new Moto X (2014) is a 5.2-inch device running Android 4.4.4 KitKat, for now, it will get Android 5.0 Lollipop ‘soon.’ Running the Snapdragon 801 processor at 2.5GHz, Adrena 330 and 2GB of RAM, it is no slouch, and the updated 13MP camera is proving a major improvement over the previous generation Moto X.

With the updated size and specs of the Moto X (2014), it should be no surprise that the price took a jump as well. Sadly, many feel that this new price tag of $500 and up, without contract, knocks it out of viable contention when looking for a good contract-free phone. It is a good thing then that this phone is like others hitting the market right now, great devices that should easily last users a couple years. Not that I’m advocating carrier contracts, just that I don’t think a contract is as bad a thing as it used to be.

Whether you buy the new Moto X (2014) on Verizon contract or not, you’ll want to head into the Motorola website to grab your new handset. Sure, you can buy the Moto X elsewhere, but Moto Maker will allow you to make all those cool customizations.

Now that the madness of the new Nexus devices is settling down a bit, which Motorola device would you drop your money on, the Nexus 6 or this new Moto X (2014)?

[Deal] Grab an LG G Watch for $50 off from Best Buy

Posted by wicked September - 1 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off



LG’s G Watch might be slightly outdated thanks to the G Watch R, but it’s still a fantastic Android Wear device. Today, Best Buy is shaving a full $50 off the list price of the smartwatch, so you can pick one up for only $179, which definitely isn’t a bad price for how new it is. The only catch is that you’ll have to get it shipped to your house, as store pickup isn’t available right now.

Amazon briefly price matched the deal, but it looks like stock has dwindled away so you’ll only be able to purchase it from third-party sellers if you want to take advantage of any free Prime shipping. The third-party sellers have the device knocked down to about $200, which isn’t quite as good as Best Buy’s offering but it’s still better than full retail.

Hit the links below for deal.

Get a free phone from Burger King. No, really!

Posted by wicked August - 26 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off

Free Phones Burger King

“You forget sometimes that only half the people have smartphones.” Led by this realization, and in an effort to satisfy another craving for visitors to Burger King, the maker of the Original Chicken Sandwich is now facilitating free phones for customers.

The deal is pretty straightforward, hit the Burger website, check out the list of phones from AT&T, Sprint or Verizon including the Moto X, LG G2 and more. You’ll be redirected to Amazon to finish the transaction on a qualifying 2 year contract, just enter promo code FREEPHONE at checkout to get the device for free.

This sounds like it is a limited time deal on a limited run of devices, so don’t hesitate if anything looks good to you.

We are not sure if this is a major play by Burger King to get into the smartphone market, if the King is just being a nice guy, or if this is a move to help right down their taxable incomes, thus relating to their supposed bid to purchase the Canadian Tim Horton’s coffee shop franchise. One thing is sure, a free phone is still one whopper of a deal (sorry!) on a new smartphone.

Up for grabs are phones like the 32GB LG Optimus G Pro, 16GB Samsung Galaxy S3 or Galaxy S4 Active from AT&T, 32GB HTC One (M7), 32GB LG G2 from Sprint and the 16GB Motorola Droid Mini, 8GB Droid RAZR M or 16GB LG Lucid 3 from Verizon.

Head on over to the Burger King website for the full list of devices and services.

There is always room for a good deal, but do you think Burger King is crazy for trying to hook you up with a smartphone?

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.

Newegg VISA Checkout promotion

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 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


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


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.
