Deal: Motorola Will Still Give You $100 Off $499+ Orders Even if You Don’t Have a Coupon Code

So many deals.

If you missed out on Motorola’s $140 and $50 off coupon code promo from Monday, that’s OK, because they are still offering $100 off purchases of $499 or more from now through February 14. So should you happen to be in the market for a new Moto X (2nd gen) or a couple of Moto 360s, or a whole bunch of Moto Hints, you could save $100.

The same exclusions from the promo code deal apply – Nexus 6 isn’t included.

Deal: Buy an AT&T LG G3 From Amazon for Cheap, Get $100 Gift Card

If you buy an AT&T LG G3 between now and February 14 from Amazon, you will earn yourself a $100 Amazon gift card for your troubles. Well, “troubles” probably isn’t a great way of putting that since the G3 is one of our favorite phones of 2014. In our tag-teamed review, Tim and I gushed about its camera, design, and feature add-ons. Before the 2nd half flagships were released in 2014, this was the phone to have.

So the deal works like this. You buy the LG G3 on AT&T – it costs $0 with AT&T Next, $0.01 with a contract, or $478 at full retail (solid deal there). Make sure that it is “Shipped and Sold by Amazon.com” or “Sold by AT&T Mobility and Fulfilled by Amazon.com.” In other words, don’t try to sneak in an even better deal by buying it through a reseller because you won’t quality for the $100 gift card. If you can satisfy that term, then you will land yourself a great phone with an added $100 bonus to spend after the fact.

Deal: HTC One (M7) Just $149 Off-Contract From Best Buy

A couple of weeks ago, we pointed out a deal through Best Buy for a brand new HTC One (M7) without a contract at just $199. Thought that was a good deal? What if I were to tell you that the price has dropped even further to $149? Well, it has. You can buy the One (M7) for $149 without a contract.

The phone may be two years old at this point, but that’s still a heck of a price for a phone this good that could be used as a temporary replacement or for someone just getting into the smartphone game for the first time.  (more…)

Saygus V2 Now Available for Pre-Order at $549, Ships in 6-8 Weeks

Last week, we told you about a phone called the Saygus V2. You probably skipped the post because you had never heard of the company and because you aren’t considering most phones right now with the new goodness from Samsung and HTC only a month away. And you know what? That’s OK. But we still wanted to point out that the phone with everything is now up for pre-order in case you do want to look outside of the norm.  (more…)
