Usually, we don't go for refurbished phone deals. But this particular one presents such a good value it might be worth it. Right now over on Daily Steals you can pick up a Google Pixel in 32 or 128 GB for just $359.99 or $389.99, respectively, via a coupon code from the folks over at FatWallet. They might be refurbs, but that's a crazy price, as they each go for $524 and $624 at the Google Store right now, and that's on sale. That makes this up to $230 off what is already a really good deal. Read More
Despite being nearly a year old, Google's Pixel and Pixel XL still haven't seen very many non-carrier related discounts. It's honestly pretty impressive how well they've held their value, but that's not good news for those of you who don't want to pay full price. Don't worry - Woot has refurbished units of both the 5.0" and 5.5" models for just $399.99 and $499.99, respectively. Read More
Ah, the Galaxy Note7. It had such promise, but it was gone too young. Now, though, it's getting a second chance on life in the form of the Galaxy Note FE, and it's launching in South Korea in early July with the Bixby virtual assistant on board. Read More
Here at AP, we're quite fond of Ultimate Ears' MEGABOOM Bluetooth speaker. In our review of it from back in 2015, we found that it was tough, sounded great, and had a nice companion app. The only major sticking point - its MSRP of $299.99 (which it still retails for, by the way) makes it pretty pricey for a Bluetooth speaker. However, Best Buy is currently selling refurbished units of the MEGABOOM for just $129.99 a pop, making it a much more enticing value. Read More
The Galaxy S7 and S7 edge may not be the hottest phones on the block anymore (that title goes to the Note7, both literally and figuratively), but they're still excellent smartphones. They've been highly rated by almost everyone who's touched them, including David (which, if you know David, is pretty rare). Now, you can pick up the desirable US unlocked (SM-G93xU) Galaxy S7 and S7 edge for just $369.99 and $429.99, respectively, from Best Buy. Read More
Hey Alexa, what's the cheapest way to get an Amazon Echo? Oh, it's $179.99 on Amazon and you don't know of any other good deals... You're wrong Alexa, but I'll forgive you because it's not on sale on Amazon but Woot — woot!
This is a refurbished Amazon Echo Bluetooth and WiFi speaker that can play music from different streaming services or your own device. But its real knock-out feature is the voice assistant known as Alexa who lives inside it (I've been told she's a tiny bobble-head who just hides inside the speaker's tower) and can answer your weird questions, execute your queries and commands, and let you control more than just a speaker.

Not interested in those new flagships from Samsung, LG, or HTC? Or maybe you just want a cheap smartphone for your teenage kid, your parents, your tech-challenged spouse, or as a secondary device for yourself? Here are a couple of Woot deals for you.
The site is offering both the LG G4 and LG G3 as refurbished units for significantly reduced prices. Both phones come in 32GB storage variants, both have large 5.5" screens, removable batteries, expandable storage, good cameras, and decent processors. Woot says these are unlocked and Grade A Refurbished devices with no scratches or scuffs on the screen or casing and they come with a 90-day warranty and a charger in the box. Read More
Some of us like buying our phones brand new, but others don't mind the idea of refurbished. When it's done well, you can save several hundreds of bucks over a flagship device that's still top of its class and capable of handling everything you throw at it. If that sounds convincing to you and you're interested in Samsung's S6 Edge Plus and you're on T-Mobile, then you can't scoff at this eBay deal.
It's a manufacturer-approved refurbished device in excellent working and cosmetic condition. It should only have some minor scratches, but nothing too damaging, and it has passed 65 inspection points. Read More
The Galaxy Note 4 is a little less than two years old now, but Samsung stuffs the Note series so full of high-end technology that it isn't really fair to call it "old." In fact, the Verizon version just got updated to Android Marshmallow earlier this week. The blogging gods must be smiling upon us, because they've offered a serendipitous eBay deal: the same phone, refurbished, for just $204.95. That's approximately five hundred dollars - five and two zeroes - off the original retail price.
The original Moto 360 feels a bit long in the tooth these days, especially since Motorola switched to the more standard Snapdragon 400 system-on-a-chip for the 2015 revision of the watch. (I guess they finally ran out of those dusty IMAP processors.) But for Android fans who have yet to check out Android Wear, or who just want one of the better options from the first-generation lineup for a song, there's a nice eBay deal going on right now. Several variations of the watch are available for $89.99 with free shipping to the US.
