Amazon is hosting one those regularly scheduled SanDisk flash storage sales as today’s daily deal, but today’s happens to include two options that you really should consider jumping at if you are in need of mobile storage.
For one, you can grab their 200GB microSD card for just $59.99. This is a product that started out at $240 when it arrived last June. It has seen a number of price drops in about a year, but typically hovers around $80. So yeah, you get a $20 savings today.
In another underrated deal, SanDisk and Amazon are offering up a combo package that includes a 128GB microSD card and a 128GB USB Dual Drive for the same $59.99. The SD card is pretty standard fare, but that bonus 128GB Dual Drive could come in handy in a number of situations. For those not familiar, this is double-ended drive that has USB 3.0 and microUSB connectors to let you quickly go from transferring files on your phone to your computer in minutes. It not only expands the storage of your phone, but easily lets you take them to another phone or tablet or computer.
The deals are good for the next few hours. (more…)
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…)
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…)
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.

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.
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.

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…)
$9 for a 32GB microSD card from Sony seems like a really good price for an item that will double the storage of your 32GB phone, right? You can pick one up right now from Amazon (with Prime shipping).
If 32GB isn’t enough space, the 128GB card from Sony is also down to just $33.49.
