It's summer time, which means that we're getting closer to the unveiling of Samsung's latest and greatest Note device(s) and thus the company is starting to think about lowering its current inventory to make space for the new models. That translates into major savings for customers who want a high-end smartphone that still holds its own against 2015's crop of flagships, or as Samsung likes to call this offer, Notable Savings.
Starting today 12:00 pm ET and until the 26th of July 2015 11:59 pm ET, if you purchase a Galaxy Note 4 at full price in the US from any participating retailer (that excludes Sprint and US Cellular), you can head to samsungpromotions.com/notablesavings to submit your information, device details, and proof of purchase to claim a $200 rebate.

Are you going on a trip soon and need some extra power to both your phone and your tunes? Then make a pit stop at Amazon first. Today the ubiquitous retailer is offering a discounted combo to US customers: a "ruggedized" and semi-waterproof Omaker M4 Bluetooth speaker plus a 5200mAh Omaker external battery for $31.98. That's $20 off of the retail price for both of them combined - you're basically getting the charger for free, and the speaker at a tiny discount. Read More
The Nexus 6 is great. It's also expensive, which is why the current $150 discount in the Google Store and other retailers is going over so well. But if you act quickly you can get Google's flagship phone for even less: an eBay seller is offering the standard 32GB blue model for $439.99, just over two hundred bucks off of the retail price. Discounts like this on Nexus phones are rare, and this is a new model, not refurbished. Read More
Gather 'round external storage lovers. You've been forsaken by Google, abandoned by Samsung, and left to feel needy and irrational in the face of the totalitarian internal-storage-or-nothing regime, but the times they are a-changin'. Google's own stance in Android M seems to be shifting toward accepting all phones no matter what they are, including the imperfect little information carriers that may need an external boost in their storage every now and then. Who knows, we might even live to see a Nexus with a MicroSD slot again. Read More
These days you can probably find someone to give you an Android Wear device, if you're not too picky about which model you select. But if you've had your heart set on Sony's latest take on the smartwatch, now's the time to bust out your wallet. Online retailer Expansys is selling the SmartWatch 3 for $149.99 on its American storefront. The listing says it's 50% off, but the Sony Store and Google Store are selling the standard SW3 for $200, so it's more like 50 bucks off of the standard price. Read More
The OnePlus One is still a great deal in terms of hardware, even more than a year after its release. If you'd like an even better deal, keep an eye on the OnePlus online store this week. According to this page, the One will be $50 off during "flash" sales, at least once per day between today, June 1st and Sunday, June 7th. Times for the start of the sale will vary, and presumably a set number of discounted phones will be sold each day. 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. Read More
Amazon likes to offer freebies every now and then on its Appstore. Aside from the daily gratis app or game, it runs regular huge promotions where it usually discounts over $100 worth of software to the awesome price of nada. Nil. Zilch. That's the case today with a mega deal lasting until May 16th 11:59PM PST.
The offer includes more than thirty apps and games, which total over $110 in their regular listing price. Most notable among the games are Game Of Thrones, Sorcery! Read More
I have tried more than a dozen Bluetooth earbud form factors, but the one I absolutely love for everyday use is the Jaybird Freedom Sprint / Plantronics Backbeat Go 2 design. Two small earbuds, one wire, and all the freedom you can think of. It's less cumbersome than the dog tag design (à la Jabra Tag) and lighter to carry around than the necklace style (think Samsung's Gear Circle or LG's Tone series). Read More
It's not hard to find USB car chargers, nor is it difficult to find ones with multiple ports. It's not challenging to find them cheap, either. So to catch our eye, you're going to need a lot of ports at a low price. Read More
