amazon-fire-tv-home-screen

It’s been an exciting couple of months for cord cutters. Dish’s Sling TV streaming service has officially launched and just last week the company announced a partnership with Amazon and Roku to offer exclusive media player discounts.amazon-fire-tv-promo

sling-tv-amazon-promo

Now, here’s where it gets interesting. Amazon just kicked off a fresh discount that knocks its Fire TV player down to just $84. The aforementioned Sling TV promo extends a $50 Fire TV coupon code for new users of its service who sign up for three months of service ($20/month).

If you take advantage of both of these promos then you’ll haul in a new Amazon Fire TV box with three months of Sling TV access for a total cash outlay of $94 — Fire TV costs $34 after coupon and Sling TV service adds $60, which yields the $94 figure. That’s still $5 below the regular price of just the Fire TV.

Here’s how to lock in your unique coupon code: Read more

Motorola Moto 360 Smart Watch w/ free $50 best Buy gift card for $300 shipped ($350 value)

As part of its President’s Day Sale, Best Buy offers a Motorola Moto 360 Smart Watch with a free $50 best Buy gift card for $299.99 shipped. That’s the same as its typical selling price, but with this deal you’re getting a free $50 credit to Best Buy. The bonus gift card will be automatically added to your shopping cart during checkout.

We were absolutely blown away by it during our testing:

The Moto 360 is the best smartwatch you can currently buy. If you’re thinking about buying one, go do it. Don’t look at the other Android Wear devices because they are inferior, at least for the time being.

… It’s a sleek and well-designed smartwatch that brings all the golden features we’ve seen with other solutions in the same space. I’ll continue to wear my Moto 360 until something better comes along, but even then, a smartwatch that looks this slick will be hard to ditch.

It doubles as an activity tracker and features Bluetooth 4.0, a built-in microphone, various sensors, and a stainless-steel case. Hundreds of Amazon reviewers rate it 4.1 out of 5 stars.
