Usually priced at $99 for a year, starting at 9pm PT on Friday, a year of Prime will only cost $73. The promo ends at 11:59pm local time on Sunday night. (more…)
Amazon is selling the 32GB model (both white or blue variants) for $249 and the 64GB model for $299. Again, as I’ve said a half-dozen times – this phone originally retailed for $649. And yes, it’s still a heck of a phone, especially at that price. It has the latest version of Android before all other non-Nexus phones and will continue to for a long time to come.
We were stumbling around Amazon earlier today, looking for deals that you could throw cash at, now that you have likely all returned back to work following the holidays. Because, if we’re being honest, focusing on work after that couple of week stretch is nearly impossible and your mind probably still wants to buy gadgets and things that people refused to buy you for X-Mas.
So here you go. We have microSD cards up to 128GB in capacity as low as $34.99, along with a bunch of power-related products from Aukey, Anker, and Tronsmart. From desktop chargers with Quick Charge 2.0 to massive power banks, you’ve got options below. (more…)
According to the Wall Street Journal, Amazon has developed and is set to launch a more affordable, portable version of Amazon Echo in the coming weeks. Reportedly shaped like a Beats Pill portable speaker, but able to stand vertically, the portable model of Echo will not feature always-listening software, so as to cut back on power usage. To interact, users will need to press a button in order to give voice commands to Alexa. (more…)
For a limited time, you can grab a supply of Aukey charging accessories through Amazon at a highly discounted price, thanks to a few coupon codes. At the discounted pricing, Aukey has a 5-port USB charger, regularly priced at $30, available for only $19 with the use of the coupon.
Other accessories include a 10,000mAh external battery pack for only $20, and a turbo wall charger for $6.50. As you will find out, each accessory is compatible with Quick Charge 2.0, making them exceptionally valuable if you have a device capable of quick charging. (more…)
Set to be shown off at the upcoming CES in Las Vegas, LG has unveiled the SmartThinQ Hub, a core for your smart home. Much like an Amazon Echo, which can be connected to other smart things in your home, the SmartThinQ Hub is designed to connect to washers, dryers, as well as other smart appliances to deliver notifications to you. Not only does it handle your appliances, but the Hub can also stream music, display upcoming calendar events from your datebook, and so much more. (more…)
Still getting used to life with USB Type-C in it, even though you have owned a Nexus 6P or Nexus 5X for a couple of months now? Or maybe you haven’t at all and are completely new to the idea of having to buy new cables, because you just received the phone over the holidays? Either way, we thought we should point out a couple of nice deals on TechMatte USB Type-C to Type-A cables that are fully approved by Googler, Benson Leung.
The discounts are on the 5-foot and 3-foot models, with $3 coming off of each after code has been applied. That discount takes the 5-foot from $9.99 to $6.99 and the 3-foot from $8.99 to $5.99. Not bad for cables that are up to spec and also apparently of the quality of Google’s own Type-C cables.
At checkout, use code “4N4GQVAL” for the 5-foot or “X63CJZ9D” for the 3-foot.
Google decided that a couple of weeks ago, it would end sales of the Nexus 6 by taking it away from the Google Store. That tends to happen each year when Nexus phones are about a year old and Google has newer products it would rather you buy. Thing is, that doesn’t mean these products can’t still be found elsewhere at incredible prices. The Nexus 7 (2013) can still be purchased here and there for rock bottom prices and it’s still getting updated! It has Marshmallow! The Nexus 6 will likely continue on thriving in the same way for years to come, even though Google is no longer selling it.
So when you see deals like today’s at Amazon and you are need of a quality, quality smartphone at a hell of a price, you shouldn’t even hesitate about jumping on it. The Nexus 6 is currently $249 at Amazon for the 32GB model and $299 for the 64GB model. Remember, this phone originally retailed for $649. That’s a hefty discount.
