Deal: Save $350 when you buy a Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ or Note 8 at Best Buy

Best Buy has a great offer on Samsung flagships, which will probably be improved on Black Friday. Still, the retailer claims that the deals have “Black Friday pricing,” so it might be a good idea to consider them before they expire.

Basically, you’ll save $350 when you buy a Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+ or Galaxy Note 8 at Best Buy. The deal requires customers to activate any of the purchased devices with a monthly installment for Verizon or Sprint.

Verizon offers the three Samsung flagships for $15.42/month, $19.41/month, and $24.41/month, respectively, …


Deal: Amazon Prime Exclusive LG Q6 and G6+ are on sale for up to 45% off

Many of the pre-Black Friday deals offer great prices on Samsung flagships, so here is something a bit different for those who can’t yet afford a top-tier smartphone.

Amazon has the LG Q6 and LG G6+ on sale for a limited time, but there’s a catch. The retailer discounts the Prime Exclusive versions of the smartphones only, so you’ll have to put up with offers and ads on these devices.

On the bright side, the LG Q6 is available for purchase for just $180, so you’ll be saving $120. The smartphone comes unlocked, so it will work on AT&T and T-Mobile networks, …

Deal: Unlocked Moto G5 Plus is just $170 ($60 off) on Amazon

One of the best mid-range Android smartphones in the $200 price range, the Moto G5 Plus is now on sale on Amazon for much less than the original price. The US retailer offers the unlocked version of the Moto G5 Plus for just $170, so customers will save $60 when they buy it.

Of course, we’re talking about the 32GB storage/2GB RAM model, which comes without Amazon offers and ads. The Prime Exclusive version isn’t on sale, so you’ll still have to pay $230 if for some reason you really want this specific variant.

Also, you’re limited to just one color, Lunar …

Deal: Verizon's Wear24 smartwatch is up for grabs on eBay for just $130 ($220 off)

Even though Verizon discontinued its own smartwatch a few months after the wearable went on sale, you can still buy the Wear24 if you really want to.

Someone found a way to stock up on it and listed the Wear 24 on eBay. To make things even more interesting, the smartwatch is very cheap and it’s available in three versions: Stainless Steel, Gunmetal Black, and Rose Gold.

For those who don’t remember, Verizon had the Wear24 up for purchase for $350, but an eBay seller offers the smartwatch for just $130. We’re not sure how good of a deal this is since the …

In case you missed it, check out T-Mobile's new ad starring Nick Cannon for its Apple iPhone 8 BOGO deal

If you caught Sunday night’s American Music Award, you might have seen T-Mobile’s new ad starring Nick Cannon. The ad focuses on a BOGO deal being offered by the nation’s third largest carrier as part of its #HolidayTWOgether ad campaign. With this deal, consumers will be able to buy an Apple iPhone 8 and get a second one for free. The 30-second spot apparently takes place on Christmas Eve when Santa and his son (little Saint Nick) make a loud arrival down a chimney.

Pops urges Junior to take notes. First, Santa tells his son that T-Mobile gives you two iPhone 8 units for the price …

Deal: Moto Z2 Play on sale for just $192 at Best Buy (Verizon model)

Best Buy is trying to steal the Black Friday deals start with a couple of promotions on some decent flagships. Along with the LG G6 deal that we’ve already reported about, Best Buy is running a promotion on the Moto Z2 Play, not quite a flagship, but a decent Android smartphone nonetheless.

So, for a limited time, customers can grab the Verizon Moto Z2 Play at Best Buy for just $7.99 per month for 24 months, which makes the smartphone cost only $192. Considering the fact that Verizon sells the prepaid version of the Moto Z2 Play for $408, you’ll be saving $216 when …

Deal: Unlocked dual SIM Samsung Galaxy S8+ drops down to $585 on eBay

The Galaxy S8+ will not remain Samsung’s latest flagship for too long now since the South Korean company is already working on the new Galaxy S9, which is expected to go official in February.

Until then, there will be plenty of opportunities to score a good deal on the Galaxy S8+, and even after Samsung introduces the Galaxy S9 next year.

One of the more recent Galaxy S8+ deals is now up and running on eBay. It concerns the unlocked, dual-SIM version of the flagship, which is now available for purchase for $634 outright. However, if you apply the code PSHOPEARLY at …

Deal: You can now grab an LG G6 for just $120 at Best Buy (Sprint model)

Looking at the price, it’s hard to believe that the LG G6 is a flagship launched this year. The smartphone is frequently available for purchase for less than $500 and, in some cases, even lower than $400.

It appears that the LG really wants to get rid of the G6, which wasn’t too popular among Android fans. That’s quite unfortunate since LG G6 is a decent device, so the only explanation could the fact that the competition offered much better products in the same price range.

So, the only thing that could make the LG G6 sell, would be to drop its price. That’s …

Brands have no idea how to deal with being caught in a political firestorm

TwitterFacebook

Coffeemaker wreckage, political pizza purchases, and erratic boycott calls flooded social media this week as major brands struggle to navigate the riptide of America’s culture wars.

Controversies like Fox News host Sean Hannity’s defense of accused sex predator and Alabama senatorial candidate Roy Moore and NFL player protests have once again thrust consumer companies into the middle of loud fights over charged topics like racism in America and society’s treatment of sexual assault.

Brands have responded to this activism with all the rigid conviction of an inflatable tube man at a car lot.  Read more…
