Update: Google has since shared a list of retailers from which Canadians can pick up the Chromecast and take advantage of the offer. The options include Amazon, Best Buy, Future Shop, and Google Play.
Canadians, don't say Google's never done anything for you. The Big G is now tossing in $20 CAD worth of Play Store credit with the purchase of a Chromecast. This deal applies whether you pick one of the affordable media sticks up from Google Play or opt to hit up another authorized retailer such as Amazon instead.
Big tablets with built-in styluses are not easy to come by. In fact, Samsung is pretty much the only game in town. The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is the biggest and most expensive Note device, but you can get a good deal on it through eBay today. If you're in the US and don't mind a refurb, it's only $499.99.
The Note Pro 12.2 has a resolution of 2560x1600 and packs a speedy Exynos 5 Octa chip with 32GB of storage and 3GB of RAM.
The Escort SmartRadar, as its name might imply, is a radar and laser detector. If you've been looking to get a radar detector for a bargain, the Escort might be the device for you, and Groupon has it at a nice discount. The site is offering the Escort SmartRadar for $199.99, a significant discount compared to Amazon's $411 price tag or Best Buy's $360 clearance option.
You may be wondering why we're covering a deal on a radar and laser detector.
There are more than a couple Gears to choose from these days, but not that long ago, there was only one. That awkward piece of tech is more affordable now, though it still hasn't dropped down to the price many people would like to pay for it. That makes now a good time to pay some attention to Best Buy. Today the retailer has refurbished versions of the original Galaxy Gear going for just $89.99, a price that's on the better side of $100.
Humble Bundle is doing something a little different to celebrate E3 this week, and that's good news for anyone who wants to save a little cash. The special E3 bundle contains over $100 worth of games and content, but most relevant to our purposes here is the Android download of Anomaly 2, which is a cool game that costs $5 all by itself. You also get it on PC/Mac/Linux.
The deal is pretty much the same as other Humble Bundles – you pay what you want with the cash being split between Humble Bundle, the developers, and charity (the ESA Foundation in this case).
Unlike last time, this deal is for the white Nexus 5 only. It's still a 32GB model, though, which is listed on Google Play for $399, but then you have to pay tax and shipping.
The revised Nexus 7 has been available for the better part of a year, and we've featured innumerable sales and discounts on the tablet. If you don't have one by now, it's probably because you don't want one. That said, if you're one of the last people in the US or Canada to get on the trolley, an eBay vendor is offering the basic 16GB WiFi model at a significant discount today.
Might as well get your week started off right with some crazy good deals on storage for your devices. Today's Amazon Gold Box is full of SanDisk cards and drives for up to 79% off retail. Of primary interest to us are the microSD cards and microUSB OTG flash drives, but there's something for everyone.
