Black Friday 2014 Deals (Updating Post)

While there are probably more Black Friday 2014 deals than anyone outside of a Black Friday blog can keep track of, we will do our best to try and highlight some of the better as they go live over the next 24 hours or so. Oh, and you may be reading this on Thanksgiving, because well, “Black Friday” seems to start earlier and earlier each year as retailers battle for your attention (and dollars). That’s right, the deals have already begun before you even started eating turkey. Nice of all of our retailer friends, right?

OK, so, this post will be updated as we can get to it. Hopefully, you don’t miss out on too much while you enjoy the long holiday weekend. And, hopefully can find some decent deals on electronics you have been keeping an eye on.  (more…)

Verizon’s Connection Day is Live – Free Things to be Had

Verizon’s newly created promotional day – a day outside of Black Friday and Cyber Monday – called Connection Day, has arrived. The thought here is that since today is one of the busiest travel days of the year, Verizon and companies they have partnered with will help you “connect” to people, music, magazines, books, etc. “Stay connected” is one of the many slogans or messages attached. Connect! Yeah!

So what’s the point of it and how does it benefit you? Well, Verizon has partnered with a bunch of companies to give away freebies. You don’t have to be a Verizon customer to get them either – all you need to do is head to their Connection Day website and start accepting goodies.  (more…)

Deal: Amazon Fire Phone (32GB, Unlocked) Drops to $199 Without a Contract

I don’t really know what to say with this one other than, yep, the failure that is/was the Amazon Fire Phone is finally priced where it should have been out of the gate. For $199, and without a contract or AT&T involvement, you can buy Amazon’s first, ultra-gimmicky phone.

This unlocked model includes 32GB of storage and works on the following GSM networks, according to Amazon –  “All GSM Networks including AT&T, T-Mobile, Walmart Family Mobile, MetroPCS, Brightspot, Simple Mobile, Mobal, Net10, Straight Talk, h20 Wireless, and OneSimCard.” CDMA networks like Sprint and Verizon are not compatible.  (more…)

Motorola’s Cyber Monday Deal: $359 for the Moto X (2nd Gen), 30% Off Accessories

Motorola unveiled its much-anticipated Cyber Monday deal this evening, announcing that they would be slashing the price of the new Moto X (2nd Gen) by $140, while also discounting accessories that you buy with it by 30%. If we do a little math, that drops the $499 Moto X (2nd gen) down to $359 without a contract. That, my friends, is a really good deal. We are talking a phone that is up for phone of the year in the minds of most tech reviewers.

If you decide you don’t want to go the off-contract route, Motorola and Verizon are also discounting the Big Red variant to $0.01 when you sign your life away for two years.  (more…)

Deal: Expansys Will Give You a Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 (2012) for $179

Desperately need a phone and tablet, but don’t have hundreds of dollars to spend and do not care if they are a couple of years old or refurbished? Check out Expansys and all of their Black Friday weekend deals, including this one, which will land you a Nexus 4 (16GB) and Nexus 7 (2012, 16GB) for $179. Oh, they will even throw in a Nexus 4 bumper too, all for under $200.

Again, neither product is new (both are refurbished) and each is likely to show its age very soon (both are two years old at this point), but still, if you need something now or a cheap present combo, think about it. And as a reminder, the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 (2012) are also running Lollipop!  (more…)
