eBay just loves discounting that 2013 Nexus 7, or at least a lot of the merchants that use eBay do. Google's perennial 7-inch tablet is back on the Daily Deal list, this time in a 32GB Wi-Fi flavor. The tablet is going for $159.99, a full $110 off of the retail price in the Play Store, so long as you're OK with a refurbished unit. According to the listing, this particular model is an Asus Authorized Refurbished product with a 90 day warranty from the manufacturer.
International readers, at least some of you can take advantage of this deal. There's a huge list of excluded countries, mostly in Africa and Southeast Asia, though Mexico is also a no-fly zone. Read More
Update: Sometimes these deals end as soon as we can get a post up. The refurbished Chromecasts are now showing up as out of stock.
I know the Chromecast isn't exactly what we would call an expensive gadget, but I like to save money wherever I can, and since you clicked on this headline, I can see that you like to too. So here's what you came here to know. Groupon is currently offering refurbished Chromecasts for just $25 to anyone living in the continental US. That's $10 bucks off the usual price.
But I hear what you're saying. You didn't come here to save $10. Read More
If there's one thing that Amazon has earned a positive reputation for among Android users, it has got to be the sheer number of paid apps that have been freely passed out as part of the company's numerous promotions. For today only, we've got another great giveaway to add to the online retailer's extensive history. There are 27 paid apps available at no cost
to users in the US, and there's no reason you shouldn't have already started claiming them! By my calculation, the total retail price of these apps comes out to a whopping $173.20.
Note: This appears to be available in multiple countries (at least the US and Portugal -- thanks jm). The same deal was available in Australia yesterday, and it seems to have gone into wide availability today. Read More
Samsung makes some surprisingly solid accessories for its mobile phones. A lot of people don't know this, because those accessories are really, really expensive, at least compared to most of the alternatives available. Today you can take half off of all the accessories - cases, cables, mounts, batteries, anything - that you buy from the official Samsung online store. But there's a catch: the coupon code is only good on items with individual prices below $50.
That caps your savings at $25 per accessory, but you can buy as many as you like at once and use the same coupon code (r1H01X01). Read More
The newest Humble Bundle is out and it's a big one. Humble Bundle for PC and Android 11 includes a whopping ten games right now, with more coming soon. All the titles are available on PC/Mac/Linux and Android with no DRM. There are also Steam keys for most platforms. All you have to do is decide how much to pay.
So you want a new Galaxy S5? Will new-ish be good enough? An eBay seller has a cache of open box devices on sale at a downright reasonable price of $429.99. This is an unlocked GSM handset, so you can use it on AT&T or T-Mobile in the US.
Newegg wants to give you a good deal on the LG G Pad 8.3, as we posted yesterday. But strangely, they're giving an even better price to customers who peruse the company's official eBay outlet: $199.99, a full $25 off of the Newegg sale price. This is the same standard LG G Pad 16GB Wi-Fi model, sold new, and only available in black. Why eBay buyers get a better deal we couldn't say, but it looks like cheap things come to those who wait.
The eBay listing has free economy shipping, and only buyers in California, Indiana, New Jersey, and Tennessee pay sales tax. Read More
LG went a long time between tablets, but when they returned to the market with the G Pad 8.3 last year, they did so in style. This metal-clad tablet didn't have the latest and greatest processor, but it made up for it with a sleek mid-sized design, 2GB of RAM, and extras like a MicroSD card slot. LG has since transitioned to more budget-oriented models (not unlike Samsung's main Galaxy Tab series), but you can pick up the original for $224.90 at Newegg today.
That price is technically $125 off of the retail value, though Amazon and other stores have new tablets going for significantly less. Read More
Android aviation enthusiasts, you've got a rare opportunity to get a sweet discount on a refurbished model of Parrot's full-sized AR Drone today. The 2.0 edition of the quadcopter that uses your phone or tablet as a controller is just $169.99 on Woot's Sellout mini-site, a full $130 off of the retail price. The deal is open for the rest of the day, until midnight Central US time, or until they run out of magical flying robots.
The AR Drone has quickly become a favorite among amateurs and enthusiasts thanks to its easy setup, piloting, and remote camera view. The 2.0 edition of the toy uses a 720p onboard camera and an expanded battery compared with the original, though the ~10-minute runtime is bested by the slightly newer Elite Edition. Read More
So many apps to buy and so few dollars with which to do it. We can help you stretch your app budget at least a little farther with some sales. More for less? You can't argue with that. Literally, you are not able to construct a cogent argument against this proposition.
