Deal: Five Days Left to Snag a Retro NES Bluetooth Controller for $30

The retro NES30 Bluetooth Controller is back on our DL Deals store, after being sold out quite quickly the last time we posted it. If you missed out last time, here is your chance to pick it up.

As you can see, it is shaped exactly like an old NES controller, which should make you feel right at home again on the couch in your pajamas back in the 80s. Given the advancement in games, the controller does feature a few more control buttons than the original, but its shape and feel stays true.  (more…)

Sprint Nexus 6 Now Available From Best Buy for $199 on Contract

The Nexus 6 is largely still impossible to find. You have been able to pre-order from AT&T and Sprint for less than a week, but most have had no chance at buying the unlocked model from Google Play or Motorola’s shop. And even if you were lucky enough to order through those last two stores, the chances of your device having arrived already are pretty slim. Hopefully, as we approach what we are assuming is the device’s official launch of today or tomorrow, we should start to see it become more accessible.

Take for example a new Best Buy listing, which shows the Nexus 6 for Sprint available for $199 with a new 2-year contract. That’s $100 cheaper than if you were to buy it through Sprint directly. You can even buy it off-contract for $699, which isn’t exactly cheap, but is an option if you need the device now and don’t want Sprint service.  (more…)

Deal: Refurbished Galaxy Tab S 10.5 for $334, Moto X Developer Edition (1st Gen) for $229 on eBay

Sometimes, perfectly good products just don’t sell as well as projected. In those cases, retailers most often choose discounts as their preferred means of clearing unwanted inventory. Today, eBay sellers have the GSM variant of the Motorola Moto X Developer Edition (DE) for $229 (about $50 less than the going price) and refurbished Samsung Galaxy 10.5″ Tab S tablets for $335 (usually $499). Both include free shipping. (more…)

Deal: Amazon Appstore Giving Away $80 Worth of Productivity Apps For Free

In case you haven’t noticed, Amazon frequently gives away apps. Not out of the goodness of its heart, of course, but to incentivize customers to use its app store. That may be too heavy a price to pay for some, but there’s no denying that some of the software in its latest free catalog – available Friday through Saturday – is quite tempting. (more…)
