Phones these days are getting increasing amounts of internal storage as standard, but it's always nice to have more space. SanDisk's 256GB Ultra USB Type-C/USB-A dual drive has dropped to just $64.99, a far cry from the ~$95 it started at. If you need some extra local storage and/or you need to transfer files between your computer and your phone often, this is worth your consideration. Read More
As a pleased owner of a Google Home Mini, I often find myself wondering why I didn't buy one or two more of these tiny smart speakers to scatter around our apartment unit. When I ask my wife what she thinks of getting some companions for our lone Mini, she aggressively asks "Why?" — and, well, that's the end of that. But now Costco is giving me some new ammunition, thanks to a deal offering members the chance to purchase a Google Home Mini (charcoal or chalk) three-pack for just $99.99, which is $15 off of the normal going price.

The world of smartwatches is starting to dry up, and as sad as that is, I can't say that I'm surprised. However, there remain a few diamonds in the rough, one of which is on sale over on eBay. The Fitbit Ionic, in all three color variations, is going for $239.99, a nice $60 off.
Sony's Xperia XZ2 series is up for pre-order now, but the Premium version is still a little ways off from being available. It'll also likely cost a fortune by the time it launches. So if you want a premium experience and you're a fan of Sony's hardware and/or software, you can turn your head to the previous generation XZ Premium, which is now at an all-time low of $525 on Amazon.
The XZ Premium launched for $799 at first, but then the MSRP was lowered to a more approachable $699. It's still the quoted price now, though recently the phone has settled around $600. Read More
