HTC is hosting a Mother’s Day promotion through its online store, valid from this morning until May 8 (Mother’s Day). If your mom is in need of a new smartphone, HTC has three different choices for you to select from.
For mothers that enjoy pink, there is a Pink One M9 (unlocked) for $399, down from its usual price of $649. For something a bit lighter in-hand, there are two One A9 models to choose from, a Sprint variant and an unlocked variant – both priced at $389. Both models are the Deep Garnet color. The One A9 is typically priced at $499, making the deal good for more than $100 off. (more…)
If you don’t own a Nexus phone, there is a good chance that your device has a microSD card slot available for expandable storage. Assuming you have yet to take advantage of the almost-daily deals involving microSD cards at places like Amazon, here is another. For just $17.99, you can triple the storage on your phone with a 64GB SanDisk Ultra microSD card, since your current device likely has 32GB of internal storage.
Prime shipping is there, plus the card comes with an adapter for plugging into a computer.
On the hunt for an Android Wear device with GPS that would be great as a smartwatch and fitness pal? The GPS-enabled Moto 360 Sport is a solid option, but even more so today because of deals across the internet for the white or “flame” models.
As of right now, you can grab the white or flame versions for $100 off, which means either watch is just $199. Amazon and Best Buy both have the $100 off deal, but if you want an even better deal, B&H Photo is doing the $100 off while tossing in a $50 B&H Photo gift card. (more…)
The special edition Moto X Pure Edition, which was designed by Jonathan Adler (No idea who that is either…), is now just $299 from Motorola. That’s a solid $175 discount on a phone that was probably meant to be a limited run, sell-them-quick-through-hype, type of phone. Since that must not have gone to plan, you can grab one for super cheap!
$299 (down from $475) is a heck of a deal, assuming you don’t mind the wild designs. These versions come with 32GB of storage, which is double the storage of the normal Moto Maker-made 16GB models. Those run $399 on most days, with the 32GB versions jumping up another $50 to $449. See, this is a pretty good deal!
We aren’t sure how long the deal runs or if it’s just until they finally sell out of them, but you may want to act somewhat quickly.
I don’t know that I would recommend that just anyone rush out and buy the original Moto 360 these days, now that the watch is closing in on its 2-year anniversary, but if you have been curious about smartwatches and their supposed usefulness, and are ready to dive in with little investment, we have a deal for you today. For just $89.99, you can buy the Moto 360 (1st gen) over at eBay. $90! With free shipping!
Keep in mind that the original Moto 360 launched with pretty dated specs (namely the processor), so in 2016, it’s going to struggle some. With that said, it’s still arguably the best looking smartwatch ever released and will still work with your current phone. It’s also just $89.99…which, again, is nuts.
The seller has all sorts of combinations available, including those on leather or metal bands. He says that they are in “new other” condition, which could just mean that they won’t ship to you in original packaging. Or it could mean something else. Either way, something to consider.
At one point, I probably would have told you that while cool and a fun party toy, the Amazon Echo wasn’t really worth all that it was cracked up to be. After all, it’s only a decent Bluetooth speaker, doesn’t have access to Google Play Music through Alexa, and does a lot of the things the phone in your hand does, only slower because you have to talk to it. But within the past year, Amazon put its foot on the gas pedal in terms of adding features to Amazon Echo and is turning it into the future hub of your home.
Today, Amazon Echo (which is controlled by Alexa) does more things than I can even keep track of. From controlling a number of different LED smart lights to giving you kid health advice through KidsMD, or finally getting access to Nest and telling you if you need to put gas in your car, this has become an incredibly useful household tool. You can even order pizza through Domino’s or request an Uber. Thankfully, as an Echo owner, you will receive an email from Amazon each week detailing the new goodies. You can also see the list of capabilities here.
For today only, Amazon is discounting Amazon Echo (and the portable Amazon Tap version) by 15% to celebrate the fact that they were voted most reputable company in the US. At 15% off, you are looking at discounts of $26 for the Echo and almost $19 for the Tap.

Another laughably low price is back and attached to the Nexus 5X over at eBay today. For just $239.99, you can own one of Google’s newest smartphones and get on with your Android N or update-first-having self. In case you were wondering, that’s a solid $110 discount before even factoring in the free shipping.
Like the deal a couple of weeks back, this 16GB Nexus 5X is the Euro model H791. That’s worth noting because even though it will still work in the US – on T-Mobile and AT&T – it won’t have the universal connectivity on Verizon and Sprint as well.

For a limited time, specifically April 15 through May 6, folks can purchase a Nexus 6P through many online retailers at $50 off of the usual price. Regularly priced at $499 for the 32GB model, you can now purchase the phone starting at $449, with the $50 promo applying to any of the available storage options. (more…)
