If you have over $100 to spend on Bluetooth sport headphones for working out or an active lifestyle, there are some decent options out there, like offerings from Jaybird. If you aren’t interested in breaking the bank on a pair of headphones that you plan to sweat all over and could reguarly be put in situations where they might be stepped on, dropped, and put through other types of physical abuse, consider the deal currently running on Aukey’s EP-B4 bluetooth sport headphones.

Today is your day if you have been wanting an Amazon Echo or Amazon Tap, yet only buy when heavy discounts have been applied. Through a handful of retailers (Best Buy and Lowe’s for example), each product can be had for $50 off. That brings the Amazon Echo price down to $129.99 and the Amazon Tap down to $79.99. Those are good deals, friends.
In case you need a recap on the Echo, you could think of it has a decent room-filling speaker for playing music from from a variety of sources or via Bluetooth. But on top of that, you can ask Alexa (the brains behind Echo) for answers to questions, about the weather, to set timers, control lights and thermostats, read the news, share sports scores, re-purchase products on Amazon, and even order an Uber or pizza. It’s a bit like a home assistant. The Tap is similar, only it’s portable and you need to press a button in order to get to Alexa.
If Echo or Tap products aren’t your thing, a bunch of other Amazon products are discounted as well, including Fire HD 10 tablets ($80 off), Kindles, Fire TVs ($69), and Fire TV Sticks ($25). (more…)
Amazon is currently selling the Amazon Echo for just $139.99 as a “certified refurbished” unit. That’s a good $40 discount off a brand new unit, which Amazon describes as being “refurbished, tested, and certified to look and work like new.” So in other words, you are basically getting a unit that has had any issues fixed and then made new again.

The Moto G4, Motorola’s recently introduced budget-friendly phone that still packs a punch, is currently available at Amazon on a special deal for just $149.99 with 16GB of storage and $179.99 with 32GB of storage. Those both weigh in at $50 discounts.
Keep in mind that this is not the Amazon-sponsored one that shows ads on your lock screen. This is the clean, ad-free version that you would buy if you picked one up directly from Motorola. In other words, this is the one you actually want that doesn’t include Amazon ads and apps throughout. (more…)
The ZTE Axon 7, the latest affordable flagship from the Chinese manufacturer, is now available for pre-order in the US at a variety of retailers. With a starting price of $399, you certainly get a lot of bang for your buck here.
As a recap, the Axon 7 was announced back in May with a somewhat mysterious launch time frame here in the States. It made headlines because not only did it offer a bunch of great specs at what we assumed would be an affordable price, but ZTE also made sure we knew that it was one of the first Daydream-ready phones.

As we noted yesterday, today is Amazon Prime Day 2016. It’s a lot like Black Friday, only in the middle of the summer for some reason and exclusively for Amazon Prime members (Not a member? Sign-up here for free.). But the idea here is that Amazon is slashing the prices on thousands of products to get you to shop, because, shopping. Seriously, I don’t get the point other than Amazon seems to think we need a mid-year Black Friday to blow more money on fun stuff. I don’t have issues with that, it’s just odd. Shopping, though!
Amazon did give us a preview of what to expect in terms of Amazon Prime Day deals and now we get to actually browse through them all and decide if they are worth the trouble. Anything good? Here are some that are sticking out at the moment.
Tomorrow, July 12, is Amazon Prime Day. You probably know that, because Amazon won’t shut up about it. And rightfully so, as Amazon Prime Day is a day not unlike Black Friday, where Amazon slashes prices and offers a variety of discounts on thousands of items. All I can say is that I hope this year’s Prime Day is better than last year’s massively disappointing inaugural discount day.
Today, to help set expectations, Amazon released a list of Amazon Prime Day deals we should see tomorrow as a preview of sorts. The deals include a $50 discount on the Amazon Echo, $30 off the Fire TV, $15 off the Fire TV Stick, and $30 off the Kindle Paperwhite. The deals don’t all involve Amazon products, though. You will also see big ticket items like a Samsung curved 55-inch 4K TVs available for as little as $650. There will be lightning deals too, the ones that come and go as they sell through or reach the end of their allotted time, and special discounts should you order through Alexa via Amazon Echo (or Echo Dot or Tap).
Amazon Dash Buttons, the programmable buttons that allow you to order all sorts of your favorite household items with a single press, are discounted today to just $0.99. Since they normally retail for $4.99 a piece, I’d say that this is a deal worth jumping on if you are a Prime member.
How do Dash Buttons work? They are super simple, thanks to setup via the Amazon Android app, and have become a part of my shopping routine, especially when it comes to things like paper towels, toilet paper, tissue paper, air fresheners, and even bottled water. In fact, Dash Buttons have all but killed off any need for me to go to Target, which is an amazing thing to say. (more…)
