DEAL: PNY 128GB SD Card Just $29.99 Today

At the beginning of next week, you will have at least three new flagship phones to consider buying, all of which are expected to have microSD card support. We’re talking about LG’s G5 and Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, of course, so now may be the time to get into a high capacity card if the price is right.

Thanks to a deal running today for PNY storage on Amazon, the time may indeed be right. For just $29.99, you can grab a “High Performance” 128GB microSD card (60Mb/s). If you want more speed, PNY “Turbo Performance” cards are also discounted (90Mb/s) heavily. The 32GB card is just $9.99 and the 64GB card is $18.98.

DEAL: Moto X Pure Edition 32GB is $375 at Amazon ($75 Off)

The Moto X Pure Edition, Motorola’s flagship for 2015, is currently on sale in preconfigured form with 32GB of storage at Amazon for just $374.99. That’s a solid $75 discount on a phone we still have in our top 3 of best Android phones you should buy today. The newest Moto X starts at a price of $399 on most days, but that’s only with 16GB of storage. If you take today’s deal, you are doubling the storage and still getting a price cut from the base model.

If you want to take advantage of this deal, you won’t get Moto Maker customization. What you are getting is either the white model, which has a white front and back with gold frame, or the black model, which has a black front and back with dark metal frame. Again, these are the preconfigured models. The white and bamboo Moto X Pure Edition with 32GB is also on sale, but because of the bamboo, it will run you an extra $25 at $399.

The device includes Prime shipping for those subscribed to Amazon Prime.

Also, Echo also supports Spotify Connect, which means you can jump from your Echo listening experience to the Spotify app without missing a beat.

“Hey, Alexa, play Taylor Swift on Spotify.” Nope.  (more…)
