Deal: Buy a Moto X From Motorola, Get a Free Moto E (2nd Gen)

We know how tough it is to consider buying a phone right now with new flagships from HTC and Samsung arriving in days, but Motorola continues to toss out decent deals that should at least make you look. Through March 24, if you buy a Moto X (2nd gen) through Moto Maker, Motorola will toss in a Moto E (2nd gen) 3G for free ($119 value). While that deal would have been even sweeter if the free Moto E was the LTE model, a free phone is still a free phone.

It appears as if the deal is good whether you go for an unlocked version or an on-contract Moto X.

Deal: Add a Waterproof Jive Jumbo Bluetooth Speaker to Your Life for Just $23

I can think of a number of situations where I may want some music to be playing but wouldn’t need (or want) the best sounding, most expensive Bluetooth speaker on the market. There are those times – like say, at the beach or a friend’s BBQ or while camping or when in the shower – where you would be better off using an incredibly durable Bluetooth speaker that is waterproof, sounds good enough, yet doesn’t break the bank. For those times, you may want to consider something like the Jive Jumbo waterproof Bluetooth speaker, which is available for a limited time in the DL deals shop for just $22.95.

This is one of those speakers that suctions to a variety of surfaces, carries an IPX7 waterproof rating, and works with pretty much any device equipped with Bluetooth. You could drop this thing in a pool, rinse it off in a sink, probably let your dog chew on it for a minute, and then toss it in the bottom of the bag for use at the next summer gathering that involves too much booze. This isn’t the best speaker on Earth, but it is an affordable option that could come  in handy in a pinch.

Deal: SanDisk MicroSD Cards as Cheap as $12.99 Today at Amazon

Samsung may have flipped the bird to microSD cards, but that doesn’t mean most of the rest of the industry is fully in support of them. HTC is. LG is too. Sony loves SD cards. So that, my friends, means you should still be interested in deals like today’s over at Amazon. SanDisk flash storage – including microSD cards – has been slashed by up to 40%.

You can grab a UHS-1 Class 10 32GB microSD card for as little as $12.99. Maybe you need more storage? Jump to 64GB for just $24.99. Even SanDisk’s Extreme PRO cards with speeds up to 95MB/s have been discounted by 20%.

And if you simply do not need another microSD card in your collection, you can also buy regular SD cards or thumb drives on the cheap.

DROID Turbo Drops to $149 at Verizon, $549 Off Contract

You didn’t buy the DROID Turbo yesterday when the new Sapphire Blue ballistic nylon version dropped, did you? If so, you may want to ask Big Red for a price adjustment, because the price was cut this afternoon by $50 to $149 on-contract. The off-contract price dropped as well, from $599 to $549.

As a recap, the DROID Turbo is the first DROID in years that hasn’t brought shame to the brand. Motorola did everything they could to maxx out this phone by tossing in high-end specs like a 5.2-inch QHD display, Snapdragon 805 processor, 20MP camera, massive 3,900mAh battery, and then covered it in Ballistic Nylon, which is awesome, by the way. Be sure to read our DROID Turbo review if this phone is on your list.

At $149 with a 2-year contract or $549 without one, you are looking at a deal worth considering even with the Galaxy S6 on the way.

DAT DEAL: Brand New Nexus 7 (2013) for $149 From Groupon

I still don’t get how Groupon has this many brand new Nexus 7 (2013) tablets lying around their warehouses, but they do, even after all these months. We are talking about a tablet of Google’s that is almost two years old and hasn’t been sold by Google in I don’t even know how long. We wrote up a similar deal from Groupon two months ago, yet here we are in mid-March, telling you about the same discounted tablet of Google’s. But hey, the tablet is still solid for an Android tablet! Why not buy one?

The deal is this – a brand new 16GB Nexus 7 (2013) for just $149. This tablet originally sold for $229, so that’s a decent $80 discount. It’s already running Lollipop, has a solid high-res display, and is compact enough that you may even be able to toss one in your JNCOs at Marilyn Manson shows.

Still need an Android tablet, but don’t want to dent the bank account? Here you go.
