If you're in the market for a super-portable Bluetooth speaker, you've got a lot of options. But if you're looking for a portable Bluetooth speaker that doesn't suck, and further more can be had at a discount, your options become significantly more constrained. According to Cameron Summerson, who's probably tried more speakers in the last year than he's had hot dinners, the Ultimate Ears MINI BOOM is an excellent choice.
Normally this tiny speaker goes for a hundred bucks, but Best Buy's daily deal has it discounted down to $59.99. You can get the all black version or the one with the snazzy red grille for that price, but for some reason the green-on-purple Barney the Dinosaur edition is $79.99 (still a $20 discount). All three are eligible for free standard shipping, or you can see if any local Best Buy retail stores have them available for in-store pickup.
The UE MINI BOOM comes with a rechargeable battery and an NFC chip for easy pairing with the management app, though it also works fine over standard Bluetooth. If you happen to have two of them, the app can output the same music to both speakers with the "double up" feature. Get an order in today to snag this discount, the price will likely go up tomorrow.
