It's not uncommon for BLU to discount its phones for a day or two right after their releases, and the new R1 Plus's launch is proving to be no different. Following its unveiling yesterday, the Plus is now available from Amazon at a pretty substantial $50 discount. If you're in the market for a long-lasting phablet and don't need the latest specs and software, this may be worth taking a look at. Read More
With more and more Android devices today losing support for removable batteries (the LG V20 is virtually the only mainstream competitor that still features this), consumers are being forced to look to heftier, more powerful chargers and portable batteries. In line with that, Anker is discounting a 5-port wall charger and a 20,000mAh battery, both equipped with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0, for today as part of Amazon's Deal of the Day. Read More
Look, educational books can be expensive. When you decide to learn something new – either on your own or in school – you have to dig in, which oftentimes means buying books on the subject. Amazon wants to ease the pain for both students and self-teachers with today's Goldbox Deal, where you'll find upwards of a thousand different titles in a variety of topics. It's worth noting that these are Kindle editions, so if you're a physical book kind of person, you're out of luck. Sorry.
If you're in the market to gain some knowledge, head over and check out the full list. Read More
Amazon's Gold Box deals are some of my favorite discounts to check out every morning. In fact, outside of the Gold Box, the only other deal destinations I regularly visit are Amazon-owned MyHabit and TouchOfModern, a site full of inspiration and ultramodernism.
But back to the deal. If you've been eying Amazon's latest Kindle Fire HD 8.9" tablet (remember all those holidays that are coming at us fast?), today's Gold Box deal of the day should most definitely make it easier to pull the trigger.
The company is discounting all Fire HD 8.9" variants by a cool $50 - all you have to do is use coupon FIREHD89 at checkout:
Note: Add $15 if you're getting the version without special offers. Read More
If you're looking for flash-based storage to beef up those ever-hungry gadgets of yours, today is the day to go shopping on Amazon. If you think the Father's Day SanDisk Gold Box sale on Amazon had good deals, wait till you see what Amazon and SanDisk stuffed into the Gold Box today. The selection is slightly slimmer compared to last time, but to make up for that, the prices are way sweeter.
Here's what's on the one-day sale in the Gold Box:
A lot of these will probably sell out quickly - try to stock up before they do. Read More
Once in a while Amazon throws a sale we can't miss, and today's SanDisk memory blowout as part of the Gold Box deals is a perfect example of just that.
We have fast SanDisk MicroSD "Ultra" cards ranging from 16GB ($18.99) to 64GB ($59.99) at lowest prices ever for these cards according to all the price checks I've run. The 32GB MicroSD is in the sweet spot of $27.99. Remember, these are not Class 2 or Class 4 - they're high quality Class 6 and Class 10 cards rated for 30MB/s transfer speeds and Full HD video recording.
If MicroSD is not your cup of tea, you will also be able to pick up:
- CF/CF-Pro cards from 8GB to 128GB,
- regular SDHC/SDHC-Pro 8GB to 128GB SDXC UHS-I (that's a whole lot of space),
- USB flash drives in 32GB or 64GB capacities,
- and last but not least, 6Gbps "Extreme" SSDs ranging from 120GB ($99.99) all the way up to 480GB ($379.99), bearing a pretty spotless 4.8-star rating and looking absolutely fantastic.
Update 5/2/12: The deal, which was extremely popular last time around, is back for another 24 hours. Here's the updated link.
If you've been waiting to pick up a cheap Android tablet, but the $200 price tag on the new Kindle Fire seemed a little steep, you're going to love today's main Amazon Gold Box deal. For one day only (or rather about 21 hours as of this writing), the Kindle Fire can be had for only $139 ($60 off) with free shipping (in fact, it's eligible for Prime).
Sure, it's the certified refurbished version which normally costs $169, but at this price, it seems worth it. Read More
One of the best cards (go ahead, sort them by rating) you can get for your mobile device is on sale today on Amazon as part of their daily Gold Box discount program. I'm talking about the 32GB Lexar Class 10 microSD card that comes with a handy reader that plugs right into a full-size USB port and reads your microSD cards like a champ.
The main reason I wanted to point out this sale was that I own this very card, which I bought from Amazon back in June of '11. Except, I bought it for $90.35, and even at that price didn't regret getting it one bit (though I am feeling just a little bitter today). Read More
