Deal: Groupon is Still Selling Brand New Nexus 7 (2013) 16GBs for $149

I can’t believe this deal is continuing to be available over at Groupon. Google’s last 7-inch tablet, the Nexus 7 (2013), after being featured by the deal site for almost two months, can still be picked with 16GB of storage for just $149. We are talking a brand new device, as well, not the refurbished kind that most deal sites are hawking these days. This is a unit that retailed for $229 when it was first released.

Still in search of a tablet? As odd as this may sound, the 2013 Nexus 7, even at $149, is still a heck of a deal.

Deal of the Week: Motorola 3,000mAh Power Pack for $8.99 (Regularly $50), 2-Pack for $14.99

Power packs. After spending another week at CES, I once again am so thankful for having them with me. There are times that you just can’t get to an outlet to get some juice in your back-up phone that’s about to die before 8PM. Some times, you need some help that doesn’t involve a socket in a wall.

If you have yet to buy yourself a power pack or battery pack of any kind, now would be a great time to consider it. Through an eBay daily deal, you can grab one of Motorola’s Power Pack 3000 (which means it has a 3,000mAh capacity) for just $8.99. Regularly, these packs run $49.99. I don’t think I need to do the math there for you to realize the substantial discount.

And if one of them isn’t enough, you can opt for a 2-pack of the Power Pack 3000 for just $14.99. So instead of paying $100 (plus shipping) from Motorola, you can have two of their high capacity battery packs for $15, with free shipping.

UPDATE:  Amazon has the same deal going, but with Prime shipping for Prime members. Amazon Link.
