Jaybird’s still-very-good X2 wireless earbuds are currently on sale at Target for just $79.99. Target claims that’s a $100 discount, but it’s really more like $70, since the earbuds are listed at $149.99 at most retailers these days. Either way, if you need a good pair of Bluetooth earbuds, these are a great choice. We talk about them a lot when they go on sale and that’s because they were a good buy at full price and remain a great buy as the price drops in antipication of the X3.
The Jaybird X2 feature 8-hour battery life, both Comply memory foam tips and standard rubber tips, sweat-resistance, and of course, really solid audio performance for a Bluetooth headset. I personally use them for workouts and don’t know that I’ll switch off of them, well, until the X3 comes out.
Free shipping is included.

Who has the best deal on the Pixel XL? Best Buy does. Since pre-orders first opened up, Best Buy has been selling the bigger Pixel at a $26 discount over Google and Verizon. How do they get away with that? I don’t know and I don’t really care.
If you pre-order the Pixel XL from the electronics retailer, you’ll pay $31 per month, which amounts to a total of $744 over 24 months. The same phone at Google and Verizon is $32.08 per month. That may not be a substantial savings, but 26 bucks is 26 bucks.
Best Buy is also tossing in a $100 Best Buy gift card and a free Chromecast with purchase (not the Ultra, just the regular).

The LG G5 may not be the best phone of 2016, yet I would argue that it’s still a good enough phone to own at the right price. Is $479 the right price? Perhaps. B&H Photo is currently selling the flagship from LG at that price, which is a cool $150 discount. Not only that, but they are tossing in $170 or so worth of freebies.
Should you buy the US unlocked LG G5 (which B&H says works on both CDMA and GSM carriers), you’ll not only get the phone at $150 off, you will also get a second battery, battery charging cradle, and your choice of a Gamin vivofit 3 activity tracker ($100 value) in either black or white.
To recap the LG G5, you may want to run through our review.

All you need to do is plugin in coupon code “FREE149” at checkout and the price will drop from $199.95. That’s a good deal for wireless buds that were just released a couple of months ago.

Before Google launches the next version of the Chromecast, thought be called Chromecast Ultra, they are hosting a deal on the Chromecast Audio that has shaved $10 off the retail price (dropping it to $25). That’s easily the best price we have seen to date. Most discounts on Chromecast devices are $5, since they are already reasonably priced at $35.
As a recap, the Chromecast Audio wants no part of your video needs. Instead, Audio wants you to attach it to your old unused speakers to try and bring them back to life. Chromecast Audio works the same way as a regular Chromecast, in that you open apps (like Google Music) on your phone and Cast their content on over, but again, it’s an audio-only experience.
