Best Buy has a handful of deals targeted at college students that are bound to put a smile on a smartphone enthusiast's face, even if none of them actually help anyone with their education. Some of these offers preserve more money than others, with the Chromecast's $29.99 sales price saving customers only $5 bucks. On the other hand, or should I say - wrist, Best Buy is cutting $30 off the price of the Pebble smartwatch. Read More
Update: Best Buy didn't waste any time updating their prices on the newly-reduced Moto X. The prices for the various carrier versions of the Moto X below are now $0, $100 off the retail value.
We're getting into the stretch of the calendar that deal hunters spend all year preparing for: the pre-Christmas consumerism smorgasbord. It seems to be happening earlier and earlier, and Best Buy is getting in on the action even before Halloween. Read More
Remember the LG Optimus Pad? It came out back in 2011, a time when seeing Android running on a tablet was relatively new. I bring it up now because that was the last time LG released a tablet in the US. Today the company has announced the immediate availability of its successor, the LG G Pad 8.3, a slightly smaller tablet that will retail for a lower price of $349.99. Read More
Hey you. Yes, you, the bitter, angst-ridden Verizon customer who's upset that you've got a snowball's chance in Hell of getting the next Nexus machine on Big Red. Let me console you with deals on a pair of new flagship devices: one that's got pretty much the same guts as the upcoming Nexus, and one that has software that looks kinda like a Nexus. Sort of. If you squint a bit. Read More
Verizon may have just gotten the HTC One, but it's hard to call it a "new" phone. Other carriers have been selling the aluminum slab for a few months now. It's getting to the point where that on-contract price is downright reasonable. For example, right now the Verizon HTC One is $49.99 on both Amazon and Best Buy.
You can get this deal whether you're a new customer or you're upgrading an existing line. Read More
Get this - Best Buy is offering up to $262.50 for Nexus 4 trade-ins. This offer is valid regardless of whether you're handing over the 8GB or the 16GB model. As long as your device is in relatively good condition and you have the necessary peripherals, you're good to go. Just move quickly. Considering the Nexus 4's $100 price drop last month, this probably won't go on for long.
Unsurprisingly, how much you get depends on the condition of your device. Read More
Smartphones and tablets are phenomenal portable media devices, especially if you've plugged in a good pair of headphones. Relying on the built-in speakers might get by in a pinch, but they're not going to single-handedly provide background music for a party without a little bit of help. If you're in that situation, now might be a good time to check out the online clearance section of Best Buy, where we've found two speakers that have been drastically reduced in price: the Philips Fidelio AS111/37 speaker dock and the Shoqbox SB7200 portable Bluetooth speaker.

If you missed out on Woot.com's Sony Internet Player deal last week, Best Buy's Deal of the Day has something that will make you smile. The NSZ-GS7 is again on sale for 50% off, bringing the price down to a more affordable $99.99. And unlike the Woot.com deal, this one comes with free shipping. Just take action before today is over - you wouldn't want to miss out on this deal a second time. Read More
If you've ordered the 2013 Nexus 7 model from Best Buy, check your email - at least one Android Police staff member has received confirmation that the new tablet is ready for in-store pickup. Twitter was alight last night and this morning with some retail customers who managed to snag one off the shelves as well. Both 16GB and 32GB models are apparently being sold freely at at least some brick-and-mortar locations, at the standard $229 and $269 prices. Read More
