The Galaxy S5 has been out for a few months at this point, but while everyone is fawning over the Note 4, you can snag a good deal on the GS5. An unlocked AT&T-branded Galaxy S5 is for sale on eBay Daily Deals right now for $419.99. It's an open box, but that's still a killer value.
Each year, buying the current Galaxy Note device is an expensive undertaking. To own one off-contract, the damage done to your wallet is quite a lot to take in at once. AT&T, for example, wants around $800 to sell you this year's model. The most affordable way around this is to purchase last year's release. It's no less powerful than it was a couple of days ago, and aside from eventually reaching the end of its support period sooner than the newer version, it will satisfy most users just fine.
Update 10/16/14: The deal, first posted on 9/16/14, is back!
Update 10/18/14: You can now take an additional $20 off by using coupon code CELL20SAVE at checkout. In fact, it should knock $20 off any $200+ phone purchase on eBay (thanks, Paul Domansky).
People looking to snag an unlocked version of a high-end flagship device generally have to spend up upwards of half a grand. Today we've come across a refurbished version of the HTC One M8 on eBay that's going for just $389.99.
I love Soundfreaq speakers. They offer big sound in a small package, generally look pretty damn good, and are always very reasonably priced. I reviewed the Double Spot a few weeks ago, which is probably my favorite Soundfreaq offering to date – it's a killer little speaker for $150. BUT! If you want it for fewer dollars, now's the time to buy. For the next two weeks, Stack Social is selling this mid-century modern speaker for $112, which is 25% off the normal price.
Update: If you're in another country, Amazon may have the Nexus 9 for you to pre-order, as well. So far we're seeing UK, France, and Germany. The US pre-order links also seem to work for Canada and Mexico.
Humble Mobile Bundle 9 may now be just the fix for residents of America's mountainous Northwest who venture out to the warmer, southeastern portions of the country and suddenly find themselves homesick. The current bundle has been updated with two games that kind of take players on a virtual trip to the Rockies: So Long, Oregon (explicitly) and Mountain (not so much). These two titles will go out to anyone who pays over the average, including those who already have.
It won't be long now until the 2013 Nexus 7 is no longer Google's newest tablet. Depending on who you are, that makes now the best or worst time to buy one. If you don't care about having the latest stuff and would rather save some bucks, then this is a good time to do precisely that. Groupon has a refurbished version of the 32GB Nexus 7 with LTE (otherwise known as the expensive one) marked down to just $199.99.
Another week is just getting underway, but do not despair as you head off to the office for another stint of backbreaking labor. You can always unwind with some apps on your phone, that lovely little slab of plastic and glass that has given you oh so many hours of entertainment. It's all right there at your fingertips, and now you can get a little more stuff for your phone for less money.
Look, $200+ is a lot to pay for a watch, especially when you've been wearing the same $30 Timex Ironman from Target for the last fifteen years. If you've been on the fence on the first generation of Android Wear devices, waiting for a good deal on at least one of them, then your time is now. Best Buy is selling the LG G Watch for $149.99, a full $80 off of the list price.
So there's this South Korean seller on eBay who seems to have a large stock of Sandisk's Class 10 Micro SDHC cards and wants to get rid of them. For $10 a pop, you can get your hands on this very decent amount of extra storage for your phone, tablet, or other gadgets. green-sum (that's the name of the seller) will be nice enough to ship it to your "worldwide"
for free for what seems to be a $5 fee across several ZIP codes we tried (the seller did list with free shipping originally, but the amount has since gone up), as long as your definition of "worldwide" excludes Asia, Africa, Europe, Oceania, South America, and basically any territory that isn't the United States minus Alaska and Hawaii.
