Congratulations, online shoppers, you collectively bought 100,000 lunchboxes over the past two days in the US, which might be the most surprising statistic from Amazon's braggadocios announcement today. Those massive lunchbox sales helped Prime Day become Amazon's largest shopping event ever, surpassing Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined, the company claims. I'm not sure which is more impressive—that lunchboxes are apparently a hot ticket item, or that Prime Day took Black Friday and Cyber Monday behind the shed and beat them both up at the same time. Probably the former, though it's close. "We want to thank Prime members all around the world," said Jeff Bezos, Amazon founder and CEO.... Read more...
Is your smartphone starting feel a little long in the tooth? Now is a good time to upgrade due to the all of the extended Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. If you're willing to join Team Magenta (T-Mobile), you can effectively snag a brand new OnePlus 6T handset when trading in an eligible phone, in a roundabout sort of way. What do we mean by that? The freebie offer consists of $580 in bill credits, paid over time—there is a one-time trade-in bill credit, followed by 24 bill credits, according to T-Mobile's related FAQ. This means you have to pony up $580 for the OnePlus 6T (128GB + 8GB RAM) right off the bat, and then collect the refund in monthly chunks on your bill. The offer is... Read more...
Take a breath folks, you made it—Cyber Monday has officially arrived, thus capping off a hectic month of holiday shopping starting with the early Black Friday bargains that began trickling in several weeks ago. If your wallet or purse hasn't been thoroughly ravaged by this point and you still have some dough to spend, there are some tasty discounts to be had on a variety of electronics. We already noted a whole bunch from Amazon, but to recap, you can score an All-New Echo Dot for $24 (save $25.99), or grab an All-New Echo Plus for $109.99 (save $40). Amazon also has a bunch of bargains on Fire TV and tablet devices. Here's a sampling of the some of the more interesting ones: Fire TV Stick:... Read more...
Now that Black Friday is in the rear view mirror, vendors are shifting their focus to Cyber Monday, the other big shopping day in November. And just as with the Black Friday shopping bonanza, stores are looking to get a jump on things with early sales. Count Amazon among them. The world's largest online retailer feasts on events like this and is already offering Cyber Monday discounts on a bunch of items. "Customers can find deep discounts across a wide selection of the season’s hottest products across every department, from Amazon Devices to toys, electronics, fashion, beauty and more," Amazon says. Amazon's Cyber Monday event is in effect right now and runs until December 1. There will... Read more...
We're nearly a full week into November, and that means the holiday shopping season is now underway. Kicking things off, Amazon, the world's largest online retailer, has expanded its free shipping perk to anyone in the United States, and there is no minimum order amount. It doesn't matter if the item costs a buck or a hundred bucks, it ships out for free. This applies to hundreds of millions of items, qualifying it as the largest free shipping selection in the country, according to Amazon. In addition, those who have ponied up for a Prime membership can shop with free same-day delivery on more than three million items, which Amazon says is the largest same-day selection in the country. "This holiday,... Read more...
Black Friday has come and gone, but several deals on electronics are still out there, now with an emphasis on online shopping. So it goes with Cyber Monday, the annual shopping event for consumers who crave an upgrade but have no interest in battling the traffic and crowds that Black Friday brings to the streets and physical storefronts. Samsung is one of several companies participating in Cyber Monday, and it has some nice discounts on a variety of products, including big screen 4K TVs. Now is definitely the time to buy a 4K TV, if you are in the market for one. With a new year approaching, TV makers are extra motivated to clear out 2017 models as they get ready to introduce new 2018 SKUs. But... Read more...
Cyber Monday deals are in the air, and that is especially true for the Essential Phone. Once billed as a flagship killer from Andy Rubin that had the chops to stand toe-to-toe with the best smartphones in the industry, the Essential Phone has essentially been left behind as flashier competitors like the Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone X have entered the fray. However, the Essential Phone does have one thing on its side at the moment: enviable pricing for a flagship smartphone. For Cyber Monday, Amazon is selling the device for the low, low price of $399 unlocked. That's an all-time low for the smartphone (if you don't count the Friends and Family discount code). What makes the deal at Amazon so attractive... Read more...
Do you hate how technology has come to rule the day? Are you looking for some peace and quiet during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday madness that is nearly upon us? Do you like...nay, LOVE fried chicken? Then boy, oh boy, does KFC have a product that is right up your alley. It is the Internet Escape Pod, essentially an adult-sized dome made of metal with Colonel Sanders perched on top. And it can be yours for just $10,000! The only thing more obscene than the asking price is what Colonel Sanders appears to be doing to it, but we won't go there. And before anyone cries fowl at the price tag, understand that KFC originally intended to sell this for nearly ten times that amount. "We were going to... Read more...
Are you need of a technology upgrade? Well, good news—Black Friday and Cyber Monday are right around the corner, which means there will be plenty of bargains to had. In anticipation of these upcoming events, Dell announced a bunch of Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals that it has on tap, and among them is an Inspiron 14 laptop for $130, marked down from $250. Remember when low powered netbooks were a thing? The discounted price for the Inspiron 14 is lower than even those systems went for. Granted, this is not a screaming machine we are talking about, but for basic computing chores, it will get the job done. It is basically a modern version of a netbook, only bigger, and equipped with... Read more...
If you’re still full from eating tons of turkey on Thanksgiving and leftovers today, you probably didn’t get a chance to venture out today to take advantage of Black Friday sales in brick and mortar stores (and who wants to fight crowds when you can sit at home in your boxers and order most of the same stuff online). Luckily, Amazon Black Friday sales are already running, and the online retail giant has already tipped us off to its upcoming Cyber Monday deals. During Cyber Monday 2015, Amazon says that its customers ordered a total of 54 million items worldwide. That translates to nearly 630 items purchased per second. Customers also placed record orders from their smartphones, scooping up electronics... Read more...
Savvy online shoppers know that the best time of the year to buy electronics is during the holiday season, and especially Cyber Monday, the first Monday after Black Friday. We're seeing lots of tantalizing mark downs, one of which is Samsung's Galaxy S6 smartphone, unlocked and with 32GB of memory, for just $400.That's $200 off the regular price of what we consider one of the best Android handsets on the market (check out our full review). It has a beautiful and spacious 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display with a Quad HD resolution (2560x1440). We get the opportunity to play with a lot of phones, and the Galaxy S6 has one of the best displays out there -- the AMOLED screen just pops with vibrant colors... Read more...
The Monday after Thanksgiving is known as Cyber Monday, basically a Black Friday event for online shoppers who'd rather sit in their PJs and click their way to savings than battle obnoxious crowds to save $50 on a toaster. It's now the most lucrative online shopping day of the year, and just as retailers have been pushing back the beginning of Black Friday events, Walmart is kicking off its Cyber Monday sale a day early this time around.Instead of waiting until the wee hours of the morning on Monday, Walmart will begin offering Cyber Monday discounts to online shoppers on the Sunday after turkey day. Ubiquitous online connections, be they from desktops and laptops or mobile devices like smartphones... Read more...
Black Friday is officially in the rear view mirror, but it's full "stream" ahead for Cyber Monday. No, we didn't mean to say "full steam," not when there are so many deals on streaming devices to be had, including a delightful $11 savings on Google's Chromecast dongle. We've been fans of Chromecast ever since we reviewed the device over a year ago, and it's only gotten better since then.Head over to Amazon and you'll find Chromecast marked down to $24 (make that $23), a savings of nearly 32 percent over its regular selling price of $35. That's about as cheap as it's ever been (we've previously seen it on sale for $25, and sometimes that's for a refurbished model), and quite frankly a steal considering... Read more...
Tis the season to shop until you drop, and rather than risk getting run over by savage shoppers who wouldn't think twice about trampling a toddler if it meant winning the race to the electronics section at Wally World, more and more people are finding it more convenient to shop online during Black Friday. That will certainly save you from physical harm, but there are other risks you need to be aware of. USA Today's Byron Acohido talked with a number of security professionals who collectively warned about increasingly aggressive efforts by cybercriminals to prey on Black Friday and Cyber Monday shoppers. More than ever, these digital crooks are bombarding email, social media posts, and search... Read more...
