DEALS: Unlocked Galaxy S7 Duos Just $499, 32GB Nexus 5X for $239

eBay has cooked up two serious deals today that include the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Nexus 5X. The Galaxy S7, in all its unlocked, dual-SIM glory, can be had for just $499, while the Nexus 5X with 32GB of storage is all the way down to $239.

If you are interested in the Galaxy S7, I’m not sure you will find a better deal than this. This is a 32GB unlocked version with dual SIM slots, so you can travel easily with this phone without swapping SIMs. This particular variant is model SM-G930FD and works on GSM networks in the US like T-Mobile and AT&T. It will not work on Verizon or Sprint. The only real issue here is that it more than likely won’t work with Samsung Pay because of its international nature.  (more…)

DEAL: 32GB Nexus 5X is Just $269 at eBay ($130 Off)

If you missed out on the end-of-the-week sale that B&H Photo held last Friday for the 16GB Nexus 5X, we have another equally-as-good deal today. Over at eBay, you can grab a 32GB Nexus 5X for just $269.99, which is a $130 discount off Google’s full retail price. How can you beat that?

As we always mention with the 5X, this affordable 2015 Nexus was already a good value at Google’s pricing, so when you see big discounts like this, it’s tough not to want to jump at it. For one, it’s a Nexus, which means the quickest of all Android updates and access to Android Betas for things like Android N. This Nexus also has a great camera, a smallish body for those who like smallish phones, connectivity on all of the major US carriers, and is only getting better with each update.

DEAL: UE Megaboom Bluetooth Speaker is Just $160 at eBay ($140 Off)

When it comes to the best reviewed and often most popular Bluetooth speakers on the planet, Ultimate Ears (UE) and its line of Boom and Megaboom speakers typically tops most lists. The combination of great sound, design, and value makes these speakers tough to beat. So when we see deals on them, well, we point them out immediately.

Right now, if you don’t mind a “manufacturer refurbished” product or two, the UE Megaboom can be yours over at eBay for just $159.99(more…)

DEAL: Grab a Nexus 6 for Just $180 at eBay

A current deal running over at eBay can land you a manufacturer refurbished Nexus 6 for a ridiculously low price of $180. Sure, this is the 2014 Nexus, which is a figurative whale, but it’s still one of the best performing devices you will ever use. And, it’s getting all the Android N love at the moment.

Whether you need a device to pass the time because you lost or broke your other, or you just love the Nexus 6 and all of its size, jump on this. The deal currently includes the blue version, as the white is sold out. Free shipping is available as well.

DEAL: Unlocked Galaxy S7 Returns to eBay at $529

eBay continues to be the best place to buy the Samsung Galaxy S7 if you have been on the hunt for one that will work with AT&T and T-Mobile. At just $529, the unlocked dual-SIM model (SM-G930FD) is today’s steal, since you are looking at a $151 discount over the T-Mobile S7 and $166 discount over the AT&T version.

In case you were wondering, I’ve been using a similar model (SM-G930F) on both AT&T and T-Mobile for a couple of months now and have had no issues, other than the fact that these international models don’t necessarily have access to Samsung Pay out of the box. There have been some strides made toward getting it to work by flashing specific software, but it’s not exactly the most beginner-friendly process.

Still, at $529, this is a heck of a deal on a phone that is probably the best available Android device.

DEAL: Nexus 5X is Just $275 Today at eBay ($125 Off)

To end last week, the Nexus 6P saw a flurry of discounts from a variety of retailers by as much as $80. If you want a Nexus 6P, hopefully you took advantage. If you missed out on any of those deals, we have a new Nexus-related discount for you today that might be even harder to pass on. The Nexus 5X with 32GB can be had for $274.99, a discount of $125.

The phone is in new condition as model H790, which is the US variant, so you should have no issues taking this to your carrier of choice, including Verizon. Currently, the eBay seller has black or white versions and is offering free shipping.

DEAL: Nest Thermostat (3rd Gen) is $199 Today at eBay ($50 Off)

The newest version of the Nest Thermostat (that would be the 3rd gen model) has dropped to just $199.99 today at eBay in a daily deal, a $50 discount. Not only is that a hell of a deal on a smart home product that I personally cannot live without, but it’s worth noting that Nest products are almost never discounted. To see the newest Nest at $50 off is worth running to.

As a recap, the Nest Thermostat wants to automate your home and its temperature. It can be controlled via app, but it also learns your patterns and activities to know when to adjust for the perfect cooling or heating. It works with IFTTT, Amazon Echo, and only gets smarter and more useful by the week. Nest even tries to save you money each month on your power bill, though I can’t say that over the years I have noticed a major impact. I’ll let others who own one weigh in on that front.

Again, $50 is a discount we rarely see, so if a smart home thermostat is something you have been considering, now is the time to jump on it.
