[Deal Alert] Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S5 Only $340 From Target As An eBay Daily Deal

Okay, so you just found earlier today that the upcoming Moto X Style will only cost $400. But you don't care about that. As much as you like the price, you can't wait around until September to pick up a phone. You don't like stock Android anyway.

Well, you can't go out and buy a brand new Galaxy S6 for under $400. You can, however, snag last year's Galaxy S5. The phone is currently available from Target on eBay for $340.

The Galaxy S5 is over a year old at this point, so its update-receiving days are numbered.

[Deal Alert] Get The LG G Watch For 50% Off From Target (In Store Only)

Target's Cartwheel app serves as a way for the company to offer discounts and get you into its stores. Today you can get the LG G Watch for 50% off. Since the retailer is selling the smartwatch for $160, that brings the price down to $80.


This offer is only valid in stores, as Target isn't even selling the G Watch online. You must sign up to redeem the coupon and then scan the Cartwheel barcode at the register. The offer expires May 9th, but it's only valid while supplies last.

Since there's a good chance many of you have never heard of Target's Cartwheel app, I'll include a link below.

Target's Brightspot T-Mobile Prepaid Brand Launching October 6th – Unlimited Talk/Text Plans Start At $35, $50 With 4G Data [Update: It's Official]

Update: Brightspot is official.

Already confused by the myriad of prepaid carriers out there? Well, Target thinks there should be one more. After @evleaks outed the name and pricing last night, more details have emerged. Target's prepaid service will run on the T-Mobile network and is launching October 6th online and in Target stores.


Pricing starts at $35 per month for unlimited talk and text, but no mobile data. For $50 you get "unlimited" data, including 1GB of 4G. Keeping in mind T-Mobile's loose definition of 4G, this does include both HSPA+ and LTE. Go over that 1GB allotment, though, and it's down to 2G speeds.

OUYA Android Console Officially On Sale Today For $100 - Best Buy, Target, And OUYA Store Now Shipping [Update]

The day has finally come, true believers. The OUYA console is real, it's on sale, and you can have one of three online retailers send one to your doorstep. The $100 gaming SoC-in-a-box got its celebrated start on Kickstarter, but as of today you don't need to be among its backers to buy one. The OUYA storefront, Best Buy, and Target are all allowing orders to go through at the moment - Gamestop and Amazon are also retail partners, but the former isn't allowing you to add the item to your cart, while the latter is showing "out of stock." 


All the US and Canadian stores list the OUYA at $99.99, while UK gamers can pick it up for the same price in pounds.

Ouya Will Be Sold At GameStop, Best Buy, Target, And Amazon, Controllers Will Cost $50

We've only got about a month left before Ouya units start landing in the hands of backers and a few months before the full-blown retail launch. A  retail launch that we now learn will include GameStop, Best Buy, Target, Amazon, and an undisclosed number of other sellers. Yes, including brick-and-mortar stores. Things are starting to look pretty good for the little console that could.

Speaking in an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Ouya's CEO released a few extra details, including the price: $100 for the console, which we knew. However, controllers will also be available for $50. Note the distinct lack of the word "extra" before "controllers." You see, the touchpad-enabled handheld can be adapted for use on other devices.

One Lucky Guy Buys $25 Google Play Store Gift Card, We Successfully Redeem It [Hands-On]

Well, well, well, what have we here? It's one of those upcoming Play Store gift cards we discovered yesterday and saw earlier today. This specific one was purchased at a local Turnersville, NJ Target by one of its employees. The kicker? He claims they are just hanging out in bins next to the checkout counters waiting to be put up on one of those gift card walls. Anyone shopping at the store can grab them from the pile, purchase (the system already allows it), and give them a new home.

Here, check it out:


Now for the best part. The code from this gift card is now in our full possession (thanks, Mongocrush!).

Target, Walmart, Best Buy And More Are Making A Google Wallet Competitor Called MCX

Yesterday, a rumor at the Wall Street Journal stated that major retailers like Walmart, Target, and 7-Eleven were in the process of teaming up to create their own mobile payment solution. They sure didn't waste much time on making it official, as this morning that solution was announced as "MCX" - or, Merchant Customer Exchange. Sexy.

This is a big deal, though. And it's a big deal because of the names in the headline above - quite literally most places where Americans buy things have come together to create a mobile wallet system. But it's not just Target, Walmart, and Best Buy.

[Deal Alert] Philips Fidelio AS140 Bluetooth Dock On Sale For $50 ($60 Off) In Target Stores

Android docks are thin on the ground, mostly because there's just too many phones and tablets for accessory makers to invest in developing them. Philips is the exception, and while their range of Fidelio docks have been well-received, they're also pretty expensive. On that note, you can pick up the Fidelio AS140/37, their mid-range Android speaker dock, for just $49.99 in Target stores. That's $60 off the suggested retail price, and more than $30 off of Amazon's price. The deal is not available on Target's website - trying to get it into your cart will only return an error. We called a local store to make sure the deal is active.

Fuhu Nabi 2 Tablet For Kids Available Now From Wal-Mart, Best Buy, And Gamestop For $199; Coming To Amazon And Target On July 22

Typically, when we think about gadgets like this designed for children, Leapfrog comes to mind. Then there are the junk devices that use two-year old tech marketed as "for kids." The Nabi 2  shatters that mold, however, by using the quad-core Tegra 3 processor to power the device. That, combined with an array of fantastic and educational software, puts this tiny powerhouse in a league of its own. Best of all: it does all that for only $199.


After my review, many people wanted to know when this device would be available. Good news: you can now order the device from Wal-Mart, Best Buy, and Gamestop.
