DEAL: Buy HTC 10, Receive Free RE Camera During Memorial Day Weekend

A Memorial Day weekend sale from HTC can net you a free RE Camera with the purchase of a HTC 10. Currently, the HTC 10 is available via HTC’s website for a whopping $699, but with that purchase, you get a free RE Camera, which has a current sale price of $80. Regularly, the RE Camera is priced at $199. Do note that this deal is not limited to which HTC 10 you buy, whether it is the Unlocked, T-Mobile, Verizon, or Sprint model.  (more…)

DEAL: Save $5 on Chromecast and Chromecast Audio

Google’s dongle line-up is currently on sale with a $5 discount at retailers like Best Buy and through the Google Store. The dongles I’m talking about are the Chromecast and Chromecast Audio of course, two products from Google that turn TVs and speakers into Cast-ready devices for modern day stream-a-thons. With a $5 discount, you are looking at spending just $30 for each.

Not sure what a Chromecast does? Please leave now. I’m kidding!  (more…)

DEAL: Jaybird X2 Drops to $99 at Amazon ($80 Off), Probably Because the Freedom Just Launched

The Jaybird X2 sport headphones are some of our favorites around these parts. Not only do they sound great for a Bluetooth pair of headphones, but they look snazzy, fit well, and last for a week’s worth of workouts. They are, at least for me personally, my go-to headphones for workouts and have been since the day they launched.

With that in mind, and if you are in the market for a new pair of top-tier Bluetooth headphones, you may want to cruise over to Amazon today. As of right now, the Jaybird X2 in white has been discounted by $80 to $99. There are others that are $70, $60, and $50 off as well.

My guess is that they are being discounted because Jaybird just launched their new Freedom headphones this morning. While the Freedom look promising and should be a solid option, at $99, the X2 are just too good of a deal to pass on.

DEAL: Nest Thermostat (3rd Gen) is $199 Today at eBay ($50 Off)

The newest version of the Nest Thermostat (that would be the 3rd gen model) has dropped to just $199.99 today at eBay in a daily deal, a $50 discount. Not only is that a hell of a deal on a smart home product that I personally cannot live without, but it’s worth noting that Nest products are almost never discounted. To see the newest Nest at $50 off is worth running to.

As a recap, the Nest Thermostat wants to automate your home and its temperature. It can be controlled via app, but it also learns your patterns and activities to know when to adjust for the perfect cooling or heating. It works with IFTTT, Amazon Echo, and only gets smarter and more useful by the week. Nest even tries to save you money each month on your power bill, though I can’t say that over the years I have noticed a major impact. I’ll let others who own one weigh in on that front.

Again, $50 is a discount we rarely see, so if a smart home thermostat is something you have been considering, now is the time to jump on it.

Buy a HTC 10 From T-Mobile Starting May 18, Receive Free Rapid Charger and Ice View Case

Between May 18 and May 24, customers who purchase a HTC 10 from T-Mobile will receive a free HTC Rapid Charger and Ice View case. That’s a total of $85 in free goodies.

According to T-Mobile, the Magenta-colored carrier is, “the only place to enjoy the HTC 10 with its powerful HTC BoomSound HiFi speakers and OIS on the front and rear cameras – the way they were meant to be used – unrestricted and untamed.” While this statement is completely false (you can enjoy those things no matter where you buy the HTC 10), the company cites its Music Freedom and Binge On services, which allows customers to stream music and video from select services without the used data counting towards your monthly allotment.  (more…)

DEAL: Brand New Nexus 5 at Woot Today for $149.99

Google’s Nexus 5, a phone so loved they re-created it in modern form as the Nexus 5X, can be purchased today at Woot.com for a ridiculously low price of $149.99. The best part? These are brand new Nexus 5s. I don’t know how that’s possible, but I’m not about to complain about a 2.5-year old darling of a phone available to fans or those in dire need of an affordable, yet still awesome phone, in new condition.

The listing says that this is the D820 model, which is the North America variant that works perfectly on AT&T or T-Mobile or a variant of GSM prepaid outfits. This phone will not work on Sprint or Verizon.  (more…)

DEAL: All Samsung Gear S2 Models are $50 Off at Best Buy and Amazon

Need a smartwatch? How about one of Samsung’s Gear S2 models? As of today, the Gear S2 and Gear S2 Classic have been discounted by $50 at Best Buy and Amazon. And we are talking about all models, including the new platinum and rose gold Classics.

At a $50 discount, you can get into the regular Gear S2 for $249, the Classic for $299, or the platinum and rose gold Classic versions for $399.

Months ago, when the Gear S2 was first released, I spent a good amount of time with it to see if it could become my smartwatch of choice. While I prefer Android Wear devices to Samsung’s wearables, there is no denying the attractive hardware here, really cool rotating bezel, and somewhat robust software experience. If anything, the Gear S2 is a solid alternative to Android Wear.
