After having their flagship phone on sale for Amazon Prime Day last week, Huawei has lowered the price of the Huawei Mate 10 Pro once again. While it isn’t as good as the Prime Day deal, it is a hefty savings for those considering it. Normally the 6″ phablet is $799 now through June 30th you can pick one up on Amazon for just $549. And this isn’t a stripped down version either. It has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of built-in storage. The $549 price represents the lowest price by far that has been available on the Mate 10 Pro here in the US.
I reviewed the Huawei Mate 10Proearlier this year and as I put in that review, it is one of the best phones out there right now. Huawei has done a fantastic job with the overall design of the phone and the Android Oreo built EMUI 8 user experience is excellent.
If you haven’t checked into the Google Play Store over the weekend and are a player of games like Candy Crush Saga or Clash of Clans, you may want to take a peek. Over the weekend, Google started a $1 off promotion on in-app purchases on a handful of games. The promotion ends on February 28.
There are five games that you can get the $1 discount on throughout this month:
Candy Crush Saga
Clash of Clans
Candy Crush Soda Saga
Clash of Kings
To get the discount, you just need to accept the promotion within the Google Play Store, then open one of the games and make an in-app purchase. The $1 discount will be applied prior to completing the purchase.
If you have been waiting for a great deal on an unlocked Android phone, Amazon has a great deal on the BLU Advance 5. This dual-SIM unlocked Android Lollipop based phone now is only $47.99 for today only. You can pick it up in either black or white for that price but the price is only for today only. While this phone isn’t going to set the world alight from a spec perspective, it is a great phone to pick up as a backup phone, one for the kids or a travel phone.
Today over on Amazon, you can pick up a great deal on the SanDisk Ultra Fit 128GB USB 3.0 drive for your PC, Mac or Chromebook. Normally this stub-style USB drive is $79.99 but right now you can pick one up for $33.99, a savings of 58%. If you don’t need 128GB, you can pick up the 64GB version for just $17.99. The Ultra Fit drives are small drives that deliver great performance. They are roughly the size of a USB mouse receiver to give you an idea and because of that compact size, you can leave them plugged into your devices all the time. They don’t protrude like a traditional USB flash drive.
Over at Amazon, SanDisk is running a huge sale on their Ultra series of MicroSD cards. These cards are compatible with Android devices (assuming you have a MicroSD expansion slot) but you will want to check the maximum size your particular phone or tablet can handle. The headliner of this sale is the 200GB card. Normally this card retails for $249.99 on Amazon but today (or while supplies last, it is down to $89.99. Do the math and that tells you this is a 64% savings. That’s a huge deal.
If you have a Qi Wireless Charging compatible device, today over at Amazon you can pick up a great deal on a charging stand. The EC Technology 2nd generation Qi Charging base is now only $11.99. That is over 75% off the regular price of $49.99 and it is good while supplies last.
There are a wide range of devices that accept Qi charging including a wide range of Nexus devices. The Nexus 4, 5, 6 and 7 (2013) all accept Qi wireless charging as well as a good range of Samsung devices. You will need to double-check on your specific phone to see if it is compatible and yes, there are a few Windows Phone devices that will work on this too.
Now through February 9th, you can save 20% off anything on the site over at Case-Mate. The offer includes free shipping as well so if you have been looking for a new case for your Samsung, Nexus or HTC device (as well as your iPhone) here is a good opportunity to get one.
To get the deal, you need to use coupon code WC57JNTW93ASC when you check out. The discount will automatically be applied at that point.
The company has cases for Samsung, Nexus, LG, Motorola and other
brands. They also have cases for your Samsung Gear smartwatch so it isn’t just for smartphones.
Earlier in the week, along with the Nexus 5X price drop, Google dropped the price of the Nexus 6P in Gold by $50. That put the 32GB model at $449 while the 64GB model is at $499. Now you can get that same pricing over at Amazon too.
The price matching at Amazon is not something new and generally after a week or two of exclusivity at Google, they match the price so their customer base can get the same price. It’s a smart move from Amazon as their customers can use gift cards (or a combination of cards and credit cards) to pay for the device. The Google Store for now is credit card.
