The Motorola DROID RAZR HD and RAZR MAXX HD are no longer new by smartphone standards, having been released back in October of last year. So typically when a phone has been on the market for five or six months, we start to see the price drop across the web.
This morning, T-Mobile appears to have dropped the price of the Nexus 4 once again to one of its lowest points. While it’s not the full “free” that it was a couple of weeks ago, for $49 and a new contract, you can still walk away with one of the most talked about devices of the last 6 months. You can read our review here.
The deal is a “web-only discount,” so that usually mean you won’t see this price in stores. We also aren’t sure how “limited” the deal is from a time frame standpoint.
To add to the savings, T-Mobile is waiving activation on all SIM cards and tossing in a free car charger with purchase.
And we likely don’t need to point this out again, but you can pay $349 for the same phone through Google Play and not have to worry about contracts.
T-Mobile is running a limited time offer that will land you a Nexus 4 (16GB version) for free if you are willing to sign-up for a new contract. The deal only lasts through this Sunday, February 24, so if you have been waiting for the ultimate deal on Google’s newest flagship, now would be a good time to look into it. Keep in mind that this is the on-contract price. If you buy directly from Google for $349, there is no contract involved, though you still need to sign-up for service somewhere.
From now through March 4, Motorola is willing to hand you a $50 Google Play gift card should you decide to purchase one of their smartphones. After buying devices like the RAZR HD or RAZR M, you simply fill out a rebate form, mail it in (old school), and sit back and wait for your $50 to arrive. If you purchase phones directly through Moto’s site, you will be automatically submitted into the $50 deal.
Looking to score a new Nexus 7 with some other goodies thrown in, all for just $259? If you head over to eBay, one seller (with a good seller rating) , Buydig, is bundling a new 32GB Nexus 7 with some Xtreme audio ear buds, a $30 Visa gift card, and free shipping to top it off. Sounds like a #win in my book.
If eBay deals are your cup of tea, get on it.
Within the last day, Amazon dropped their price for the HTC DROID DNA significantly, making this one of the better steals for a smartphone you’ll find. If you want to add a line to your family account or are a new customer to Big Red, you can grab the DNA and its 1080p display for $49.99. If you are a current customer with an upgrade, you can snag HTC’s latest and greatest for $99.99.
We reviewed the DNA when it first came out and came away mostly impressed. The display is the best in the business (for now), it has an above average camera depending on who you talk to, surprisingly excellent battery life, and a simple design that can still “wow” your friends.
Verizon is still selling it for $199.99 on contract.
Cheers Faisal and Scott!
Earlier today, we talked about Verizon slashing the price of the RAZR MAXX HD to $249, also noting that Amazon had it at $149 for upgrades. But how does $99 on-contract sound from Costco? Better deal, right? Oh, they are also tossing in a car mount and case as some sort of “Accessory Kit” mail-in offer.
You would technically need to be a Costco member in order to grab this deal. Either that, or you can con a friend into letting you use their card or taking you with them on their next trip.
We’re told the deal may only last until the 12th, which is tomorrow.
Over the weekend, Verizon dropped the price of the Motorola DROID RAZR HD and MAXX HD by $50. Rather than having to fork out the standard $299 for the MAXX HD, you can now step into one for $249. If ultimate battery performance isn’t your cup of tea, then think about the regular RAZR HD which is now listed at $149.
But don’t forget that Amazon is selling the RAZR MAXX HD for $149 with an upgrade or $99 on a new contract. Options are good, my friends.
