DEAL: Start Your Smart Home With Samsung SmartThings Hub, Which is Just $50 Right Now ($50 Off)

Samsung’s SmartThings line of products has been a leader in smart home controls for years now. It works with just about every new platform that is created, including Google Home and Amazon Echo and Philips Hue and Ecobee thermostats and smart locks and smart wall outlets and cameras, to name a few categories. It’s probably the most widely adopted because it was introduced early enough that others have given it a chance to become a leader. But in order to control all of that stuff and begin your smart home setup, you need a hub to talk to everything. Today, Amazon is hosting a 50% off sale on the SmartThings Hub (2nd gen), which is the starting piece to this whole game. At just $49.99 ($50 off), you won’t find a better deal on SmartThings Hub.  (more…)

DEAL: Moto 360 Sport is Just $120 Right Now

Daily Steals is currently running a deal on the Moto 360 Sport that is borderline impulse-buy area. At just $119.99, we’re talking about $180 discount over its original $300 price. In recent months, it has been permanently dropped to under $200, but this is still a solid discount on an Android Wear watch with GPS.

We reviewed the Moto 360 Sport back in January and found it to be a solid Android Wear device. For workouts, the GPS came in handy, the special display looked great outdoors, and the general fit and finish is quite nice.  (more…)

Verizon Currently Running BOGO 50% Off Promo, Includes Pixel Phones

Looking for a good deal on a multi-phone purchase? Verizon is currently running a “buy one, get one 50% off” promo for its top Android phones. The list of devices includes Google’s Pixel and Pixel XL, Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, and the LG V20.

To get the deal, the fine print says you need to buy the first phone on a device payment plan, which then gets you “50% instant discount on full retail price of 2nd device of equal or lesser value.” The deal is only valid for a “limited time.”

DEAL: US Unlocked Galaxy S7 is $120 Off, Includes Free $60 Fast Wireless Charger

Best Buy is currently hosting a really good deal on the US unlocked Galaxy S7 (and S7 Edge). These are the phones that Samsung pushed out shortly after launch with connectivity on all major carriers, including Verizon. The phones weren’t cheap, though, so I would imagine that many of held off from picking one up. But as of today, you may want to give them another look.

The unlocked Galaxy S7 in either black or gold has been slashed by $120, down to $549.99. If you want the S7 Edge, you will get a $100 discount down to $669.99. As an added bonus for the Galaxy S7, Best Buy is tossing in a free fast wireless charger, which they typically sell for $60. The free charger bonus does not appear to be a part of the S7 Edge discount.  (more…)
