The venerable Nexus 5 is getting on in (phone) years, but the Google price for the 32GB is still $400. There's an eBay deal today offering the device for a mere $385, but that also includes free shipping and no tax (except in NY). That could easily save you another $40, depending on where you live.
Update 7/25/14: The deal that quickly sold out last time on July 11th is back.
A 16GB Nexus 7 might leave you tight on space, especially if you plan on playing multiple games on it, but at $129.99 this restriction can be overlooked. The tablet is again available at this remarkable price on eBay Daily Deals, and while it's a refurbished model, beggars can't be choosers when we're talking $100 off.
I don't need to tell you this is a good deal – we've seen it pop up before and it sold out pretty fast. Today you can get the Nexus 7 in either 16GB or 32GB sizes for $170 and $130 respectively, but it's US-only.
The 2013 Nexus 7 is approaching a year old now, but that time has done little to slow this 7-inch slate down. New models are still zippy and more than capable of handling most of what the Play Store has to offer. So when the tablet is available at a discounted price, it's worth pondering whether you or someone you know is in need of such a solid piece of tech.
Unlike last time, this deal is for the white Nexus 5 only. It's still a 32GB model, though, which is listed on Google Play for $399, but then you have to pay tax and shipping.
Google sells the 16GB Nexus 5 for $349, so on the surface this doesn't seem like an amazing deal. However, Google charges you tax and shipping. It really adds up. You're lucky to get the N5 out the door for less than $400, depending on where you live. Or you can just pay a lot less and buy it on eBay right now.
The Nexus 5 isn't exactly the latest and greatest smartphone anymore, but it seems like the phone won't be getting a follow-up, so perhaps it's not such a bad buy for the time being. If you were holding out for a good deal on the 32GB model and demanded a specific color, today may be the time to pull the trigger. eBay Daily Deals has the 32GB Nexus 5 in all three colors for $384.99 shipped, and there's no sales tax anywhere but the state of New York.
