It’s becoming something of a monthly habit for eBay to release site-wide coupons. This month is no different with a one-day, 15% off code valid on almost all products. When checking out, simply use the promo code PICKSOON before 6pm PST today, September 27. This discount is fairly standard for the company, although we occasionally see 20% off site-wide and even $25 off entire purchases.
These coupons are much preferable to eBay’s “select item” deals, which limit the item choice to a company-curated selection. They make today a great time to pick up a phone upgrade or new tablet. For example, this already good deal on the Samsung Galaxy Note9 dual-SIM Exynos edition can be dropped down even further, to almost $700. Read More
Amazon's latest streaming media player, the Borg Cube Fire TV Cube, went on sale a few months ago. It has already dropped below MSRP a few times, but now it's on sale for $79.99. That's the lowest price we've seen yet, and $10 cheaper than it was on Prime Day. Read More
The Note9 has officially been released for two months and we’re continuing to see deals for the Exynos variant (SM-N960F/DS), this time at the low price of $829.99 ($130 less than the MSRP). This dual-SIM version replaces the Snapdragon 845 with Samsung’s in-house Exynos 9810 chip and is suitable for use worldwide. We last saw a deal for this version on Sept. 4th at $867.
Next month is fixing up to be a busy one for smartphone fans, with new launches coming up from Google, LG, Razer, and more. And while we're sure some of you will prefer to hold off on buying any new hardware until all those announcements are out of the way, we've got a few tempting deals that are just about doing their darnedest to separate you from your hard-earned cash.

We recently reviewed Anker's Nebula Mars II, the company's new flagship portable projector. It's bright, loud, and runs full Android 7.1 Nougat. However, the MSRP of $499 was a bit pricey. Anker is now discounting the Mars II and the Mars Lite (a cheaper version with no Android OS) at $399.99 and $229.99, respectively. Read More
The Google Home Max was announced last October and went on sale in December, just in time for last year's holiday season. Since then, the pricey smart speaker has mostly kept steady at its $399 launch price, but now a number of retailers are knocking $50 off that number, bringing it down about 12% to $349. Supplies are scarce at some of these places, and this price may not be around for too long. Read More
Usually, you can't buy a phone with the intention of later flipping it for profit like, say, a house or a car. But planning your purchase around sustained resale value can be a good way to budget for more frequent upgrades. In fact, I'm regularly asked by friends and our more budget conscious readers which models and brands I've noticed hold their value the best, so here's a brief list of my (relatively) safe bets.
