[Deal Alert] Huawei Honor 8 is $100 off at several retailers with over $200 in freebies including JBL Synchros Bluetooth headphones

The Huawei Honor 8 just made our list of the most wanted midrange phones of 2016 (between $250 and $500) because of its impressive specs at a price that can go down to $300 sometimes.

Newegg has the best deal on the Honor 8, offering $100 on both the 32GB and 64GB models in all of their available colors: black, white, blue, and gold (only 64GB). This brings the price down to $299 and $349, respectively, but Newegg is throwing in a bunch of freebies: $50 Newegg gift card, Huawei Honor 8 case, Huawei Gift Box (includes selfie stick, extra power charger and USB-C cable, and Micro-USB to USB-C adapter), and a JBL Synchros E40BT Bluetooth headphones that has an MSRP of $125 (now priced at around $90 on Amazon) in pink.
