Update: Amazon or Best Buy offer the new-ish UE Boom 2 Waterproof Speaker (in most colors) for $149.99 shipped ($50 off). 

GeedDeal’s Ebay site has the UE Roll Rugged/Waterproof Bluetooth portable speaker in Volcano 2 pack for $79.99 shipped. That’s by far the lowest price we’ve seen for a 2 pack and even a good price for a 1 pack (BOGO). These are listed as new, open box and carry a 90-day warranty from GeekDeal in Volcano color shown above. I reviewed the UE Roll extremely favorably and even recommend it over the UE Roll 2 at its deeply discounted price.

For reference, Amazon has 1 for $69.99-$100 and that’s a solid deal. So for $10 more, you are getting a second speaker.

Dads love these and they make great summer companions.  expand full story

UPDATE: You can also find the Mohu Re-Leaf for $30 with code CRUSHCABLE at Mohu.

We’ve had some great HDTV Antenna deals in the past but this might be the best ever with one that hits all the checkpoints and coming in at a super-low price.

Amazon/1byone offers the 1byone 50 Mile Super Thin HDTV Antenna with 20ft Coaxial Cable for $29.99 (a good deal) but Coupon Code: JNPAR9TT  drops it a whopping $13 to just $16.99 shipped. Why is this particular Antenna so great?

  • Transparent so it doesn’t block window view any more than it has to
  • Long 20-foot cable so that it can reach all the way across the room to the best window
  • With optional amplification powered by your HDTV or external USB port, get a 50 mile+ range
  • Excellent 4.1/5 star rating. Amazon’s #1 Best Seller
  • 12 month warranty and 30-day money back guarantee

What’s a better gift to dad than never having to pay a cable bill again? expand full story

Amazon offers the 1byone Super Thin Indoor HDTV Antenna (model OUS00-0561) with 16.5 Feet High Performance Coaxial Cable – Silver/Black, for $12.99. Coupon Code TU5XDSSL drops the price down $5 to just $7.99 Prime shipped. That’s the lowest price we’ve seen on a tier one HDTV Antenna with a decent coax lead (16.5 feet) and this one gets an impressive 4.1/5 star rating.

These are great for bringing in local channels (~25 mile radius) without having to drop insane prices on cable bills and cable boxes. You hook it right into your HDTV, program some channels and voila: free TV forever.  At $8 shipped, this wanders way into no brainer territory. Even if you aren’t a cord cutter, this serves as a great backup in case of cable outage or emergencies.  Great for Dads and Grads.

Don’t have a HDTV to hook it up to? Hook yourself up with a 24″ Vizio from Walmart refurb for $89.99 shipped. You are set for life and you haven’t spent $100!

Motorola offers its Moto X (2nd Gen) 64GB phone for $249.99. Coupon Code SPRINGISHERE at checkout drops the price $100 to $149.99 shipped.

Woot via Amazon offers the Motorola SURFboard DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem and 802.11AC Wi-Fi Router (model SBG6782AC, refurb) for $74.99 with free shipping. As a pricing comparison, it typically sells for about $185-$220 and has never been lower than today’s deal. Standalone cable modems and wireless routers are frequently on sale, but we rarely see a combo unit like this one from Motorola receive a significant price drop. This modem will pay for itself within a year because the router you are renting from your cable company can cost as much as $10/month.

Not only does this gadget simplify your network setup, but it should also increase wireless performance and prevent connection drop outs. Rated 4 out of 5 stars from 700 Amazon reviewers. Other features and tech specs can be seen below.

This week, Daily Steals offers the iPhone 5 16GB refurb w/Otterbox Defender Blazed Phone Case for $99.99 shipped. That’s the first time we’ve ever seen an iPhone 5 below the $100 threshold and adding the Otterbox Defender case is the icing on the cake.

This is a great alternative to an iPod for kids or parents or a great backup phone in case something happens to yours. It takes the latest OS 9, is unlocked and works on all carriers except Sprint. If you give it to your kids, you can use Find my iPhone/Friends to find their whereabouts and even without the SIM, the 911 functionality works in emergencies.

It also makes a great burner phone with a $30/month unlimited data plan from T-Mobile or testing phone for developers.  expand full story

If you don’t want to start your tool kit one piece at a time, Amazon today has a great deal on the Black & Decker LDX120PK 20-Volt MAX Lithium-Ion Drill and Project Kit (B00C625KVE) at $59.99 shipped. This is a great beginner/intermediate tool set and is even great for older kids who are learning how to really fix stuff. If you have a cottage, external structure or a vacation home this is also a great kit to have around. It includes 20V Drill with removable battery that connects to tons of Black and Decker equipment.

I like this kit because it contains everything you need to do light work around the house, hang paintings, fix small appliances, etc. Better yet, it all fits in a tiny carrying case (included). expand full story

Sometimes you don’t need to buy the most expensive HDTV you can afford to get the job done. Today at Walmart there are two great deals on full 1080P TVs that shouldn’t break the bank and make excellent second/third TVs for the bedroom, basement, attic or kids’ room.

First up, ProScan’s 42-inch-er at Walmart is $179.99 shipped.  It gets 4/5 stars at Amazon and features:

  •  3 X HDMI, VGA, YPbPr, AV Audio/Video, PC Audio, Headphone, Coaxial, RF
  • Super Slim Design
  • Outstanding Picture Quality
  • Includes Full Function Remote Control. Wall Mount Ready (Mount not included)

Next, we have the Refurbished VIZIO E24-C1 24″ Class 1080p 60Hz Razor LED HDTV and monitor also at Walmart for $89.90 shipped. That’s tied with the lowest price we’ve seen on a 24-inch HDTV from a 1st tier manufacturer and $10 off the regular sale price. It’s also the lowest we could find for any 1080p TV with Smart features that could also be used as a monitor. It has 1 HDMI input, is wall mountable and it comes with VIZIO Internet Apps Plus. Rated 4.2/5 stars by over 3,000 Amazon shoppers.
