Microsoft’s new 365 subscription gets you Office on one Mac or PC & tablet for $69/year

Office-devices-Microsoft

Microsoft is launching a cheaper ‘Personal’ Office 365 subscription today that will give you access to the cloud services and mobile apps for $69/year or $6.99/month opposed to the $99/year Home subscription. The new Personal subscription only provides access for one Mac (or PC) and iPad (or tablet) instead of the 5 PC or Macs and 5 tablets you get with a Home subscription.

You might want to hold off on the new subscription, however, as Amazon is currently selling the full Home subscription for just $63 (37% off). That’s cheaper than the new $69 Personal plan, but it’s possible Microsoft could soon end that discount and change prices on Amazon now that the new Personal subscription is launching.

Nintendo announces price drops coming to some of its most popular 3DS games

DKReturns3D-official price drop-Nintendo-01

Today, Nintendo announced some price drops coming to some its most popular 3DS titles. Its top three best-selling 3DS games of all time in the US: Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land and New Super Mario Bros. 2, along with Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D will be getting an official price drop starting April 22 to $29.99 each. Nintendo says customers should see the price drop reflected in both the eShop via 3DS and various retailers.

The 25% price drop sounds enticing, especially for those looking to catch up on some solid 3DS titles, but we have seen most of these titles drop below $30 already from retailers like Amazon, Best Buy and others. First party Nintendo titles don’t see discounts nearly as often as other games and platforms, so there is a good chance we could see listings for these particular titles dip even lower following the scheduled price.

While $30 for anyone of these games is a good price considering the value of Nintendo’s well crafted first party games, and is even lower than some current listings, it might be smart to watch out for some even deeper discounts in the weeks after the official sale begins.

Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB Portable HDD w/ $50 Dell gift card $120 shipped ($200 value)

seagate-backup-plus-slim-silver

Dell offers the Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB Portable Hard Drive for $150 but drops to $119.99 and adds a free $50 gift card (arrives via email in 10-20 days) once you add it to your shopping cart. As a pricing comparison, this drive retails for $150, carries a street price of $120, and the lowest previous price we have ever featured was $85 as part of an eBay Daily Deal. Taking into account the value of the gift card, today’s promotion is the best price we have ever seen by $15.

It features USB 3.0 connectivity (backwards compatible with USB 2.0), a metal design, and a mobile app to wirelessly backup information from your gadgets.

It’s rated 4.4 out of 5 stars from 343 Amazon reviewers and is Wirecutter’s favorite portable hard drive:

The 2TB Seagate Backup Plus Slim is the best portable hard drive for most people because it’s reliable and sturdily built. It’s also more compact, lighter, and faster than our previous recommendation, the WD My Passport Ultra.
