DEAL: UE Boom Bluetooth Speaker Just $99 ($100 Off)

We don’t often write up deals on speakers because we’re not an audio site. But every once in a while, a deal pops up that we just have to pass along. Best Buy, in a pre-Black Friday deal, has the UE Boom wireless Bluetooth speaker slashed to just $99.99, which is a $100 discount. That’s a hell of a deal.

This is one of the best reviewed Bluetooth speakers on the market with a 4.7 star rating at both Best Buy and Amazon, through thousands of reviews. It has 2 active and 2 passive speaker  drivers, NFC, is rechargeable with up to 15 hours of playback, has a 3.5mm aux jack, and is IPX4 water resistant. If you have two UE Booms, you can link them together for some stereo fun.

The deal is for multiple colors of the UE Boom and includes free shipping.

Ready to tackle the first consumer edition of Samsung’s Gear VR headset line? Called just Gear VR, sans “Innovator Edition” tag, you can pre-order the headset today for $99 at places like Best Buy, Amazon, and

As a reminder, this is the first of Samsung’s Gear VR series that works with multiple devices.

Moto X Pure Edition Available at Best Buy Stores

Sick of reading about the Moto X Pure Edition and would rather get your hands on one? You can now do just that at Best Buy stores. This evening, Best Buy’s website flipped the switch on black, white, and bamboo models of 16GB or 32GB with in-store pick-up. We have also heard that Best Buy stores have the phone on display for some physical rubbing from you.

Before you cruise in, you should hit up the link below and check your nearest stores for availability. I live in Oregon and wasn’t able to find any nearby stores with the phone, but Washington sure seems to have plenty of stores with stock.

Motorola told us that mid-September would be the time that the Moto X Pure would arrive in stores and it looks like they were spot on.  (more…)

DEAL: Nexus 6 Drops to $349 at Best Buy Too

On Friday, Amazon cut the price of the Nexus 6 across the board by $150, dropping it to $349 for the 32GB model and $399 for the 64GB model. I think it’s safe to assume that this is an inventory clearing move as we approach the launch of the nexus Nexus or two. We were curious why no other retail outlet did the same, though. Well, they are now following suit it appears.

Best Buy dropped the price of the 32GB Blue model over the weekend to $349, matching Amazon’s price. At this time, the 64GB Blue and White versions have not seen further discount.

Still a phone on your radar, even with replacements incoming?

Deal: Moto 360 With Metal Band Just $149 at Best Buy

A few weeks ago, Motorola and its retail partners dropped the Moto 360 to its lowest price yet at $149 for leather band models and $199 for metal band models. Today, Best Buy took it a step further and dropped metal band versions to $149 as well. That’s a pretty substantial discount, especially when you consider the fact that Motorola is still charging $199 for metal variants.

Keep in mind that a new Moto 360 could be here any day. We’ve seen it cruise through the FCC and show up accidentally on Motorola’s Instagram account.

But if you want a great deal on what is still the best looking Android Wear watch on the market, now would be the time.
