DEAL: Amazon Echo and Fire TV Products All Discounted for Black Friday

I know that most of us as Android elitists aren’t fans of Amazon’s implementation of “Android” on tablets and phones, but that doesn’t mean some of their other offerings, like the Amazon Echo and handful of Fire TV products aren’t solid and completely worth having in your home.

For Black Friday, Amazon is discounting all of their Amazon devices like the Echo and Fire TV line-up. They are also discounting all of their tablets and e-readers as well, in case those are of interest.

The Amazon Echo, which is Amazon’s assistant/speaker/cool-looking-tube, has been discounted by $31 to $149. Their Fire TV products are also seeing nice price cuts. The Fire TV stick (without voice remote) is down to $24.99, but you can grab the version with a voice remote for $10 extra at $34.99. If you want something a bit more high-powered, the regular Fire TV box is down to $74.99 ($25 discount).

Nexus 5X Now Available From Amazon in All 3 Colors

Google has been selling the Nexus 5X for a good month or so now with immediate availability and free shipping if you go the Ground route. Unlike the Nexus 6P, the 5X has been well-stocked and is easy to obtain. But if for some reason you don’t like to buy devices directly from Google and instead were waiting for Amazon or other retailers to sell LG’s new Nexus, your time has come.  (more…)

Amazon Announces 8 Days of Holiday Deals Leading Up to Black Friday

Next week, we celebrate Thanksgiving before setting off on holiday shopping excursions throughout Black Friday, a day dedicated to being suckered into places like Best Buy or Costco because they are allegedly selling a 50-inch TV for $100. It’s also a day to sit online, skipping the lines and getting suckered into similar deals through online dealers. Think about it, though. What’s a better situation – a) standing in line for hours in the cold to not buy 1 of the 3 $100 TVs or b) sitting on your couch in PJs, with a whiskey-filled coffee in one-hand, not getting 1 of the 3 TVs that the same place allegedly sold online? I know which one I would go for, which brings us to this post that took way too many words to get into.

Amazon announced this morning that they are hosting 8 days of holiday deals as a lead-up to Black Friday. They are kicking off the series this Friday, November 20, and running it through to the big day. They said to expect new deals to pop-up as often as every 5 minutes for 8 straight days. Then, on Thanksgiving, 10 “coveted” Deals of the Day will arrive, starting at midnight, followed by another 10 or so on Black Friday.  (more…)

DEAL: Up to 60% Off PNY SD Cards, Including 128GB for $39.99

Amazon’s big deal of the day is a discount on PNY memory products, some of which have been dropped by as much as 60%. You’ll see standard SD cards, flash drives, powerbanks, and of course, microSD cards.

The microSD cards include those at 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB. The 32GB “Turbo Performance” card is $9.99, which is kind of an insane price. You can double it to $64GB for just $18.99 or go H.A.M. on storage with the 128GB card for $39.99.

Again, it’s a deal of the day, so jump on it if you have storage needs.

DEAL: Amazon Echo Drops to $149 Today Only ($30 Off)

Amazon Echo, a cylindrical Bluetooth speaker that doubles as a semi-assistant for your home, is on sale for today only at $149.99. That’s a $30 discount, in case you were wondering.

Not familiar with Amazon Echo? It’s actually pretty cool. I have one in my kitchen, as does my brother. We both use ours to play music by using voice commands (like “Hey, Alexa, play 90s hip hop.”), ask it for answers to questions we may be having during a conversations, and set timers while cooking this or that. It really is a highly useful tool that can also take care of your media needs when in a pinch.

It does much more than those few things, though. By triggering it with a “Hey, Alexa” command (Why it isn’t “Hey, Echo” is beyond me.), you can also ask it for weather, news, traffic, and sports scores. You can also connect to services like Pandora or iHeartRadio, Philips Hue, SmartThings, and you Google Calendar. You can even shop, by asking it to re-order Prime-eligible products.

Again, it’s $30 off, today only.
