Now that Google has finally caught up with demand for the Chromecast we’re getting one of the first real discounts on this nifty media player. Anyone with a valid .edu email address is eligible to purchase a Chromecast for $29.99 with free shipping from Best Buy. The Chromcast will wirelessly beam movies, music, web content and more from Android, iOS, Mac and PC devices to any HDTV via a WiFi connection. As of right now the Chromecast supports Google Play, YouTube, Netflix, and just recently added compatibility with Pandora and Hulu Plus. Initial Best Buy deal ends 11/24. For those of you without a .edu email address, your best bet for a Chromecast is at Amazon thanks to Prime benefits, potential tax savings, and a no-hassle return policy.
You can also save $30 on a Pebble Smart Watch, one of the very first discounts we’ve seen on this popular gadget.
