Samsung has no problem with
bribing enticing people to use Samsung Pay. Every few months or so, the smartphone maker offers a different incentive to start making mobile payments.
This time around, Samsung's deal is coinciding with the day US carriers announced they would start shipping the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. The manufacturer is giving out a $30 gift card to anyone who activates and successfully completes a purchase from either device. Read More
The Huawei Watch has been one of the best Android Wear devices since its launch last fall, but the price was quite high. It's come down a bit from time to time, but today there's a big sale on almost all variants of the Huawei Watch on Amazon. You can save over $100 on some of them, but the sale is valid today only.

The JBL Charge is a great speaker. When David reviewed the original model, his biggest issue was the price. That makes it a good product to pick up on sale.
Right now Best Buy is offering the JBL Charge 2 speaker at $79.99, which is a significant discount from the usual price of $149.99. And since this is Best Buy, you can place the order online and pick up the product from the nearest store that has it in stock. Read More
Dedicated GPS units come with mounts that make them easy to view in your car. That's an advantage they have over smartphones, but it's a small one. There are no shortage of accessories that can hold your phone in the same way.
Some options are more annoying than others. Sticking a mount to a window can take a while to get right, and it's not legal in some localities. I prefer to stick a mount on my air vent or CD slot instead. But even then, the grips often require both hands. An easier approach, for people willing to stick a metal plate to the back of their phone, is to use magnets instead. Read More
I like microSD cards. No trusting your data to file hosting services. No being dependent on having access to Wi-Fi or having to worry about burning through your cellular data allotment. You know your files are accessible when you want them.
When you're looking to buy a microSD card, one aspect to consider is whether it's big. Small is fine, but really, what you want is big. 32GB holds more music than 16GB. 64GB puts 32GB to shame. 128GB crushes them both. Read More
Chromecast Audio is Chromecast for your ears. You plug the circular puck into a speaker and then cast sound from your phone, tablet, or PC. If you already have a bunch of speakers lying around, this is a relatively cheap way to wirelessly stream music regardless of which room you're in. Even cooler, you can stream audio to multiple rooms at once.
A Chromecast Audio costs $35. Since you're probably going to want more than one, now would be a good time to consider picking up a unit from the Google Store. Read More
Earlier this month we saw the Galaxy Tab A 9.7 available for $215, a significant discount from its usually high price. This brought it down to only slightly less than what the 8-inch model typically costs. Except now folks in the US can pick up the latter on eBay for even less. Read More
Google is running another of its big app promotions today through March 10th, and that means you can get some great deals on popular stuff like Today Calendar and djay 2. The recent Poweramp and Nova Launcher sale is also part of this promo, but that's just the start. Note: these deals are available in a lot of countries, usually at the lowest regular price in that country's currency. There are also some unrelated sales going on, so we're lumping it all together.

Now is looking like a good time to pop a bag of popcorn and settle down in front of the Chromecast. Google is offering movie rentals for 50% off. Read More
What's in your wallet? If it's a Capital One card, and you live in one of the largest metros in the US, and you like hoping into cars with strangers, then you may be about to get four free UberPool rides. Read More
