Update 10/16/14: The deal, first posted on 9/16/14, is back!

Update 10/18/14: You can now take an additional $20 off by using coupon code CELL20SAVE at checkout. In fact, it should knock $20 off any $200+ phone purchase on eBay (thanks, Paul Domansky).

People looking to snag an unlocked version of a high-end flagship device generally have to spend up upwards of half a grand. Today we've come across a refurbished version of the HTC One M8 on eBay that's going for just $389.99. For anyone doing the math, that's significantly cheaper than the $669.99 that AT&T wants to sell you a new version of the handset directly, let alone tax savings if you're outside California.

This is a great deal for a device as new as the HTC One M8, one that's not even half a year old, and while a few flagship handsets have launched in that period, this phone's aluminum build quality still remains an oddity in the field.  The Glacial Silver option is sold out, but the seller - which happens to be the same qualitycellz from last time - still has units in Gunmetal Grey and Amber Gold.

The shipping is free, and the seller is willing to ship outside of the US, though the countries appear to be limited to those in North America and Western Europe. People living in those places are welcome to hit up the link below before the stock clears out again.
