Itching to try out the Samsung Galaxy S5 or Gear smartwatches? If you live near a Best Buy, today is your chance. The chain announced yesterday that many stores will have sample units of the S5 and Gear line on hand starting March 21, several weeks before their respective April launch dates. (more…)
Best Buy is currently selling the Nexus 7 (2013) with LTE for $299, $50 off its retail price. This is the same tablet that Verizon now sells for $349 or $49 on-contact. This is also the same Nexus 7 (2013) with LTE that can be purchased on Google Play and will work with AT&T, T-Mobile, and Big Red’s LTE networks.
For $299, and with LTE connectivity on those three carriers, you can’t really beat the value.
Cheers Scott and Stephen!
With rumors suggesting that a follow-up to Samsung’s Galaxy Gear smartwatch will arrive in a couple of weeks alongside the Galaxy S5, deals like today’s at Best Buy could come often. The electronics retailer has slashed $150 off the original full retail price of the Galaxy Gear, dropping it to $149.99 for today only in select (most) colors. (more…)
If you have needed a good excuse to upgrade your handset, Best Buy is looking to help you out. For a limited time, February 2 to February 15, you can sign up to receive a $50 Best Buy gift card to put towards the purchase of a new phone on either AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint. You can sign up to four different lines for the credit, so if you were looking to surprise the whole family, then there you go. (more…)
According to Best Buy’s listing for the Moto G on Verizon, the phone magically grew a 4G LTE radio over night. In other words, their listing is wrong. The Moto G (unless Best Buy is selling a version that even Motorola doesn’t know about) does not have the ability to connect to an LTE network. No sir, not the GSM version or this CDMA variant that works on Verizon’s 3G network. Again, it almost certainly lacks the radio, probably as a cost cutting measure to keep the phone at its insanely low $179 and $99 price points. (more…)
Last week, the Moto G with Verizon branding showed up at Best Buy stores at a price of $99 and a tad earlier than I think any of us expected. Sources of ours confirmed to us at the time that the device would officially go on sale January 9, a date Verizon has now made extra official this morning. (more…)
Not to say that Black Friday and Cyber Monday were busts, but the deals as we inch closer to X-mas seem to be getting better by the day. For example, the Pebble smartwatch dropped $20 on Black Friday with its arrival at Amazon, but can be had today for $30 off at a couple of retailers (both Best Buy and Amazon). Better yet, if you can currently claim student status with a .edu email address, you could save an extra $30 from the already discounted sale price at Best Buy, getting you into what most would consider to be the best smartwatch available, for $89.99.
