So here's a pretty crazy deal. Best Buy is selling the Verizon-branded DROID Turbo 2, the Motorola flagship from late 2015, for $312. That's a pretty good deal on its own, even if it comes with a bit of a bummer that it's only available on an installment plan ($12.99 for 24 months). But what's particularly nutty is that Best Buy is throwing in a $200 gift card to the store with each one. That brings the effective price for the phone down to just $112. For a brand new version of a model that's coming up on a year and a half from release, that's hard to beat. Read More

Dropbox, being the de facto leader in paid cloud storage, rarely offers any discounts on its 1TB "Pro" service. But lately that seems to be changing, if only through Dropbox's retail partners: Dell offered a sizable discount on a year's subscription plus a gift card last month, and now Amazon is doing something similar. Head to this link and you can purchase a year of premium Dropbox service for $99, with a free $50 gift card for Amazon, effectively bringing down the price to just $49. Read More
Prices for gift cards rarely go down, but when they do, people tend to go berserk for even the smallest discounts. Case in point: for a $50 Play Store gift card, a slash of $5 to $41.99 at Costco may not sound like much, but it's clearly resonating well with some Slickdeals members. Read More
The Pixels were announced today, and there's no other way to put it - they're pretty expensive. The line starts at $649.99 for the smaller, 32GB Pixel and maxes out at $869.99 for the 128GB XL. That's iPhone-esque pricing (the devices literally cost exactly the same as comparable iPhone 7s do). However, if you're a Verizon customer, you have an option to ease the pain; Best Buy is offering customers who pre-order and activate the Pixel and Pixel XL a $100 gift card and a free Chromecast.

Customers who want a solid phone with good specs and a screen size under five inches have been having a hard time of it for the last few years. Sony seems like the only manufacturer that will give them the time of day, and their phones aren't always easy to find in any given market. Those in the US who've been salivating over the Xperia X Compact, the company's latest bantamweight heavy-hitter, can now put down some money to get an American unlocked model. Read More
If you've forgotten about ASUS's ZenFone Zoom, I don't blame you. After it was announced in January 2015, it took over a year for it to be launched in the good ole US of A at a not-unreasonable price of $399. Now though, you can pick one up from B&H for $35 less than the MSRP and get a ZenWatch 2, a $50 B&H gift card, and a 10,050mAh battery thrown in at no extra cost. Read More
The ZTE Axon 7 was announced to much "fanfare" at the end of May with famous pianist Lang Lang endorsement, BMW Designworks input, and Dolby Atmos surround sound. Sure, that's a lot of talk that means next to nothing to most of us, so I'll switch to a language we all understand: Snapdragon 820, 5.5" QHD display, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage, USB-C, 20MP rear camera, and 3250mAh battery. Better? Alright.
The phone went up for pre-order last week for $400, an arguably nice price for what you're getting. But what if I told you that you could get it for more than $100 less at B&H? Read More
The early reactions to Motorola's new generation of hardware have been tepid at best. Even so, if you're one of the people looking forward to the recently-announced US launch for the 2016 version of the Moto G and the new G Plus, Motorola is hoping to sweeten the pot on the already budget-priced phones. Both Best Buy and B&H Photos are offering free $50 gift cards to their respective stores for early buyers. Read More
There are many ways to buy content on the Play Store: debit/credit cards, carrier billing, Paypal, and gift cards. The latter is one of the least complicated options since all you have to do is buy a card from the store, enter it into your account, and you're good to go. There's no need to worry about bank cards, carrier fees, or a Paypal connection. You can even gift these cards to friends and family members to encourage them to buy content.
Now gift cards are coming to Indonesia — one of the most populated countries in the world. They'll be available in 150000, 300000, and 500000 Indonesian Rupiah values (approx $11.37, $22.76, and $37.93, respectively) and will be sold at Indomaret stores. Read More
