If you're in the market for a Cricket Wireless phone, the carrier is offering some downright fantastic deals at the moment. They're offering massive mail-in rebates of $200 off the Galaxy S4, Galaxy S III, and HTC One SV (in addition to their regular web discounts), delivered in the form of a Visa prepaid card. Thanks to a surprisingly low starting price, Samsung's Galaxy S4 is just $329.99 with the rebate - and that's not a contract price.
So here's something we're not used to hearing: Dell's got some pretty good deals going for phones right now. Verizon's Galaxy S4 is only $129 for new customers ($160 for upgrades), Sprint's version is $119 for new customers, and both come with a $50 Dell eGift card.
The deals don't end there, either – all versions of the GS4 come with a $50 eGift card, even if they haven't knocked a bundle off the price.
If your love for Android (or at least its little green mascot) is so profound that you feel the need to collect every possible piece of memorabilia, then we've got a great deal for you. ThinkGeek has been making official Android plushies for a while now, but they've been consistently sold out on the website. An Amazon retailer is selling them for the low, low price of one buck. If you can spare another $5.99 for shipping, this little guy is all yours.
A $16 Android launcher is a tough sell, but you can pick up a copy of Next Launcher 3D today for free. This alternative launcher is the work of the Go Launcher Dev Team, and the paid version has over 100,000 downloads, even at $16. Just a few keystrokes and you can have it for free, though. Even if the flashy UI isn't your speed, it's worth grabbing just to play around with.
If you're looking for an audio-focused smartphone and some sweet speakers to use it with, have we got a deal for you. Today the AT&T website published one of its occasional package deals, a 32GB HTC One plus the Beats Audio Pill Bluetooth speaker for $99.99 together. Naturally you'll need to sign a new two-year contract with AT&T in order to take advantage of the price, but even if you don't care about the portable speaker at all, it's $100 off the base price of one of the best Android smartphones around.

Blowing stuff up is a classic gaming trope, but few series have done it as well, or as consistently as Serious Sam. What started as a mindless, frantic killing-spree has evolved into a more attractive, high-resolution killing-spree. There's no covers system and no regenerating shields – this is serious business. In the newest deal from Humble Bundle, you can get up to seven Serious Sam titles plus the original public test edition for one low price of your choosing.
Now's not the best time to buy a tablet, what with all the new goodies coming out of Computex and Google due for a new round of Nexus machines in a few months. But if you're willing to settle for some slightly older models (and hoof it to a local brick and mortar store) OfficeMax is offering some great deals with a coupon code. Enter the code SAVE20 at checkout and you can take 20% off of any tablet you like, so long as you select in-store pickup.
If you are in search of a tablet that's not too big and not to small, today is your lucky day. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is on sale through eBay at the reasonable price of $349.99. That's about $30 less than what it's going for on Amazon. You also get $25 in Google Play credit free with purchase.
The Note 8.0 is Samsung's mid-range Android 4.1 tablet. It lacks the higher resolution of some more expensive tablets (1280x800) and only has 16GB of storage.
