I love Mondays, and not because I live in a bizarro world where I have weekdays off. No, it's because I get to resume my favorite activity: finding the most awesome deals in the universe! And providing coffee-fueled hyperbole!
To kick off your week in similarly superlative style, I've rounded up not one, not two, but four sweet deals.
1. Who's your 'bud?
In case you missed last week's Bluetooth sport-phones deal, or just didn't like that particular product, here's another one that's arguably even better.
This week only, and while supplies last, AccessoryGenie has the GoGroove BlueVibe AGL Bluetooth sport headset for $24.99 shipped when you apply coupon code SAVEAGL at checkout. Regular price: $39.99 plus shipping.
The BlueVibes employ a neckband design, noise-isolating earbuds, tactile onboard controls, and a microphone so you can talk while you work out. They run for up to 5 hours on a charge, and they're backed by a three-year warranty.
2. A real page-turner
The Kindle Paperwhite remains, to my thinking, the gold standard of e-readers. Can you buy a full-blown tablet for not much more than its $119 list price? Yes, but the Paperwhite is much easier on the eyes, much easier to read outdoors, and free of the distractions (Facebook, email, Candy Crush, etc.) inherent in tablets.
For a limited time, B&H Photo has the Kindle Paperwhite for $99 shipped. Not a huge savings, but a savings nonetheless. Mother's Day gift: done! And why not pair it with this (cheap-plug alert!) top-rated, highly practical, super-inexpensive e-book to get Mom started?
3. Android expander
Running out of storage on your Android phone or tablet? If you can't fit all the movies, music, photos, and other stuff you want to carry, consider packing that media onto a flash drive.
Like this one: For a limited time, Meritline has the Super Talent Express Motile [sic] 16GB flash drive for $12.99 shipped when you apply coupon code MLCW28PN at checkout. (This being Meritline, that code could expire after a certain number of uses -- and I'm afraid I have no way of knowing when it'll hit its limit.)
I don't know what "Motile" means, but I do know the drive has a standard USB connector at one end and a Micro-USB at the other. The latter lets you plug it into nearly any Android device that supports USB OTG, though check the compatibility list if you want to be absolutely sure it'll work with yours. Pretty cheap solution for storage-strapped Android gear.
4. The daily monitor
For laptops and desktops alike, it's hard to beat a second screen -- especially a high-end screen with a low-end price.
Today only, and while supplies last, Best Buy has the HP Pavilion 22bw IPS LED monitor for $109.99 shipped (plus sales tax). IPS, of course, stands for in-plane switching, a technology you typically find only in monitors costing a lot more. Short description: great color reproduction and ultra-wide viewing angles. And when you see the user reviews on this model (4.7 stars out of 5), it's clear it lives up to those claims.
Specs include 1,920x1,080 native resolution, an input trifecta (VGA, DVI, and HDMI), and a one-year warranty. I've never seen an IPS monitor priced this low.
That's all for today, cheeps!
