Like the Kindle tablets that came before it, Amazon's Fire TV Stick is built on top of a customized version of Android. You won't find the Play Store and Google apps on your television screen if you pick one up, but it's still a good way to get your hands on apps. Then, of course, there are the ever-so-important TV shows and movies.
Best Buy is currently offering the Fire TV Stick for $25. That's $15 less than the product's usual price. This also matches the amount Amazon was selling the media dongle for during its big Prime Day sale in mid-July. Read More
Asus has a history of making inexpensive Android tablets. While it doesn't make Nexus tablets anymore, the Taiwanese OEM is still chugging along in the tablet market. The latest tablet from Asus is the ZenPad S 8.0, and it's now available at Best Buy in the US. It doesn't appear to be for sale through any other channel yet.
If you should find yourself in need of a way to jam to some tunes on the go, Best Buy has a good deal on a Sony portable Bluetooth speaker today. I know, I'm as surprised as you, but it's actually a solid sale.
The Ultimate Ears MINI BOOM speaker is currently marked down to $50 as a Best Buy deal of the day. That's a 50% discount on what I would personally say is an awesome little portable Bluetooth speaker. Our very own Camerson Summerson would say the same, albeit in more detail.
This deal undercuts the last Best Buy sale, which was just over a week ago, by $10. This time around, you can get the speaker in all black or with a red front grille, and you can pick up the green-on-purple Barney the Dinosaur edition at the same price. Read More
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). Read More
If you've been waiting on a good deal for Motorola's first Android Wear device, now might be the time to strike. Best Buy is offering every retail variant of the Moto 360, all the various color and band combinations, for $100 off of the already-reduced base price of $250. That means the cheapest new one is $149.99, while the most expensive option (the "champagne" gold color with matching metal band for men or women) is $229.99. Read More
The HTC One M9 is HTC's new flagship, but there are still plenty of M8s floating around out there. Best Buy is looking to unload some stock today with a steep discount. You can get a new M8 for AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon for $299 off-contract. This deal is valid today only, or until supplies are exhausted.
A few years have passed since we reviewed the V-MODA Crossfade M-80 headphones, so we understand if you're not familiar with the verdict. Tl;dr, they're good. These things were a compelling buy at over $200, and now you can get them for a more tantalizing price of $80 from Amazon and Best Buy.
We last saw the headphones crop up at this price just before Christmas, but it was a one-day Amazon sale. This time you can pick the goods up from more than one place. Amazon's there if you want fast shipping. Best Buy lets you pick up the headphones in-store and use PayPal if you're into that sort of thing. Read More
The announcement of Samsung's new Galaxy Tab A didn't generate much excitement because of its not-so-low-end price. However, you can now grab it more cheaply at Best Buy. You will receive $100 for trading in a working tablet so long as you also purchase the Tab A, which starts at $230. There are a few caveats to look out for, though.
Why yes, that is a whole lot of fine print. Let's break it down.
- The $100 comes in the form of a $50 coupon towards the Tab A and a $50 Best Buy gift card. It isn't specified whether you can use the gift card at checkout.
Are you a new owner of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and have expandable storage withdrawal? Maybe things aren't so bad, since Best Buy is running a killer deal on a tiny flash drive that will plug straight into your phone. Of course, the main negative to a microUSB device would be the difficulty getting files onto it, but there's an easy way to deal with that: this one also has a standard USB plugin.
It might not be quite like having a microSD card, but for quick and relatively painless moving of files between PC and phone/tablet, this is nearly ideal. Read More
