Deal: Unlocked GSM Moto X (1st Gen) for $249 Through eBay, Galaxy S4 Active for $299

At $249.99, today’s deal on last year’s Moto X is a steal. Sure, the device may be over a year old, but take a look at what AT&T announced this morning – last year’s Moto G LTE for $199 at full retail. This original Moto X still tops the Moto G in every single category and is arguably better than a lot of 2014’s phones. It has a better display than the Moto G, better camera, better overall design, and was at one time, a flagship phone that we dubbed the best Android phone of 2013.

In today’s deal over at eBay, you can grab the GSM unlocked version (XT1053) in brand new condition, with no carrier branding, in either black or white for $249. The device supports both T-Mobile and AT&T bands of GSM and LTE, so you should have no trouble connecting it. The deal also includes free shipping.

On a related note, the Galaxy S4 Active can also be picked up for as little as $299. Another great deal.

Deal: Nexus 7 (2013) 16GB on Sale for $129 From NewEgg

NewEgg’s eBay shop is hosting a deal today on the Nexus 7 (2013) with 16GB of storage that is one of the lowest prices you will see. At $129 for a “manufacturer refurbished” unit, you probably won’t find a better deal than this on last year’s Nexus tablet. Actually, you may not see many more of these deals with the Nexus 9 close to release – we would imagine that resellers are going to do whatever they can to blast through remaining inventory on last year’s model, if they haven’t already.

Deal: Nexus 7 (2013) 32GB on Sale for $159 From eBay

Update:  The Nexus 7 (2013) deal has returned, once again. With a new Nexus 9 tablet on the horizon, we may not see deals like this for much longer.

Still haven’t picked up the Nexus 7 (2013) after the countless deals that we have shared? Well, here is another one. Today’s deal includes the 32GB variant for $159.99, which is more than $100 off the original retail price. The device is “manufacture refurbished,” but you know what that means by now – the manufacturer has had a chance to work out defects or kinks.

Not much else to say with this one; you have seen this deal countless times.

Deal: Unlocked AT&T Galaxy S5 in Black, White, or Gold for $429

Even though it has been available for months, longer than most 2014 flagship phones, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is still a force to be reckoned with. With its industry-leading Super AMOLED display, Snapdragon 801 processor, and great camera, the Galaxy S5 still stands up nicely to other top-tier devices introduced over the last couple of months. If you haven’t been moved by the new Moto X or LG G3, and the Galaxy S5 has remained on your radar, today may be the day to consider pulling the trigger on one.

A current eBay daily deal has the AT&T version (SM-G900A) in black, white, or gold with 16GB of storage for just $429.99. That’s off-contract of course. The device’s description says that it is unlocked and should work on both AT&T and T-Mobile. It does appear to be missing one of T-Mobile’s GSM bands, though, so your best bet would be to attach it to AT&T to get full LTE and GSM connectivity.  (more…)

Deal: 16GB Nexus 7 (2013) Plus Free Leather Case on Sale for $129 Today Through eBay

Note:  This deal was posted back in mid August, but it has returned at the same price and with the same leather case. $129 isn’t a bad deal.

We don’t know if Google will ever release another Nexus 7 tablet. In fact, the only rumors of a new Nexus tablet center around an HTC-made device with a metal body and an 8.9-inch display. So if you plan to buy a Nexus 7, like last year’s model, you are quickly running out of time. Google has sold out of almost all versions of the Nexus 7 (2013) through Google Play without re-stocking them for weeks. The only two available are the 32GB LTE model in black or the 16GB WiFi-only version, both of which go in and out of stock on the daily.

If the 16GB WiFi-only version is of interest, hit up eBay’s daily deal today. You can grab a “manufacturer refurbished” 16GB Nexus 7 (2013) for $129, but that also includes a free leather case and free standard shipping. The device retailed brand new for $229. Not a bad deal.
