Black Friday is long gone and Christmas is only a few days away. That means you might be scrambling around for last minute presents, stocking stuffers, or to hook yourself up with something nice as a “Thank you” for being so awesome. If you want a spot that has Black Friday-level deals on tech, look no further than Best Buy. In fact, most of the deals I’m seeing are the same deals they posted over Black Friday weekend.
The deal is called the “Wrap It Up” sale and it runs until tomorrow. It also includes free 2-day shipping on most stuff. (more…)
Nova Launcher, one of the best 3rd-party launchers in the business, is currently on sale for anyone looking to bump themselves up to the Prime option.

Because it’s still the holiday season, companies like Verizon and AT&T have lined up a steady stream of deals to help you with your gift shopping. For this weekend, both companies are offering up the best phones for free, or at the very least, really cheap monthly payments on the best phones. (more…)
B&H Photo appears to be hosting a holiday sale of sorts, providing folks an opportunity to pick up great carrier unlocked smartphones, for very attractive prices. (more…)
Amazon dropped the price of the Amazon Echo and Echo Dot today to $139.99 and $39.99, respectively. That’s a solid $40 discount on the bigger Echo and $10 off the already reasonably priced Echo Dot.
I’m not sure I need to explain for the 20th time what each does, so I’ll try to keep this short. Echo products from Amazon are like smart home voice control boxes, but the bigger Echo includes a decent-sounding speaker too for tune listening. Each device is good for ordering stuff from Amazon, getting news or weather or sports scores, setting timers and alarms, playing music from popular streaming services, playing games (like Jeopardy!), and more. They are very much a more seasoned Google Home because they have been around a lot longer.
If interested, these are the best prices you’ll find and we aren’t sure how long they will last. With that in mind, Amazon is showing some pretty delayed shipping times. However, a handful of additional retailers are selling these at the same prices, with Xmas-approve shipping.

Samsung is still one of the few companies making 256GB microSD cards and it just so happens that they have discounted their best today on Amazon. The 256GB Samsung EVO Select microSD card has just $159.99, which is a $40 discount from its normal $200 price.
While not cheap, this is storage that should last you for years, or will at least hold the majority of your music collection. Plus, you are looking at 95MB/s transfer speeds and also speeds fast enough for handling 4K video shoots.
The deal is for a limited time and does include Prime shipping.

For those in the market of an Android tablet, the Pixel C is one of the better options. Yes, it is priced quite high, but you are getting one of the more premium tablet experiences available to Android users, especially if you opt to grab a Pixel C Keyboard, too.
To help combat that high price, Google is hosting a limited-time sale on the Pixel C and its detachable keyboard. Right now, you can grab the Pixel C in 64GB for just $499, which is $100 off. The keyboard is also on sale at $99, down by $50. This brings your total to $598. (more…)
With Xmas only a couple of weeks away, you should start thinking about grabbing those last few presents for loved ones. Don’t be that guy (me) running around on December 23 looking for final gifts.
If you need a handful of affordable stocking-stuffer items, you might want to take a look at all of the Anker products that are discounted right now at Amazon. Devices like their fast wireless charger ($20), PowerCore 5000 quick charge power bank ($14), and Quick Charge 3.0 car charger ($17) all have solid price drops.
Each includes Prime shipping as well. (more…)
