iphone-5s-deal-RadioShack-$99

RadioShack is planning a new iPhone promotion starting tomorrow that will let new or upgrading users get an iPhone 5s at a significant discount. The 16 GB model of Apple’s latest smartphone will be available for $99, down from the usual price of $199 for all customers on AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon.

Customers who bring in a “eligible” iPhone 4s (which usually just means “in pretty good shape”), will also get a $100 credit towards their iPhone 5s purchase, which knocks the price down to a very manageable $0.

Sling Media Slingbox 350, stream live HDTV to your iPhone/iPad $100 shipped (Reg. $180)

slingbox-350-deal

Update (4/22 1:15pm): Deal is now live at Tiger Direct for $99.99 with free shipping.

As its Gold Box Deal of the Day, Amazon offers the Sling Media Slingbox 350 for $99 with free shipping. That is $80 below retail and the best price we have ever featured by $25. Nearly 300 Amazon reviewers rate it 3.9 out of 5 stars.

It sends your existing cable TV at your home to your laptop, smartphone, or tablet in full 1080p HD. You can watch your Slingbox on your friends’ or families’ HDTVs with an Apple TV, Roku player, and Chromecast support is coming soon.

The Slingbox 350 only supports ethernet connectivity so you’ll need a wireless bridge if your HDTV is far from your router. Sling Media recommends the Neatgear Universal Wi-Fi Internet Adapter (WNCE2001) and Netgear 3DHD Wireless Home Theater Networking Kit (WNHDB3004), but an Apple Airport Express will also do the trick.

This is one of the best ways to get the most value out of expensive monthly cable bills.
