Unlike most phone networks, FreedomPop offers unlimited talking and texting with no contract. 9to5Toys Specials currently has one year of service bundled with the second generation Moto E for $150 shipped.

9to5Google’s review was unapologetically positive calling it the “best small Android phone that (a very little amount of) money can buy

Motorola’s 2nd generation Moto E handset is universally recognized as an outstanding combination of quality and affordability. It runs a very recent Android Lollipop on a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, displays content on a vivid 4.3-inch qHD screen, and has all-day battery life in the literal sense. We’re kicking it up a notch with this bundle, which comes with FreedomPop’s generous service, including 500MB of 4G data per month.

With this deal, you also get the Premier upgrade, which offers a ton of extra features, such as voicemail, data rollover, tethering, and VPN. As a bonus, you can switch to FreedomPop’s free plan at any time, and there are no termination fees if you decide to go elsewhere.

The deal takes 78% off the price of the Moto E with FreedomPop.

If you think Public Wi-Fi is secure, you’re playing with serious data-risk fire. That is, unless you use a virtual private network to secure your information, such as TigerVPN. 9to5Toys Specials is now offering a lifetime subscription for just $29.

By routing your traffic via intermediary servers, TigerVPN disguises your identity from would-be attackers, and the service gives you 15 nodes to choose from. This means you can select the fastest route, but it also gives you access to region-locked content (e.g. Netflix, Skype). Bandwidth is unrestricted, and the 10Gbps servers are designed to minimize lag. For added protection, there is the option to use 256-bit SSL encryption with a choice of protocols, PPTP, L2TP and OpenVPN. TigerVPN has mobile apps to keep you secure on the go, as well.

  • Top-notch security with 256-bit SSL encryption
  • Includes 10Gbps servers optimized to limit latency globally
  • Offers access to 15 nodes: Amsterdam, Atlanta, Bucharest, Copenhagen, Denver, Frankfurt, London, Los Angeles, Madrid, Miami, Montreal, New York, Toronto, Vienna, and Zurich
  • No limit on data
  • Bandwidth health detection maintains performance at peak times
  • Includes easy-to-use mobile apps
  • Choice of encryption protocol – PPTP, L2TP, OpenVPN, etc.

The deal takes 96% off the price of a lifetime subscription (normally $790). Head over to 9to5Toys Specials to grab it for $29.

expiredAcer Iconia 8GB HD Tablet in 4 colors, dual cams, Intel Atom refurb: $50 shipped

Acer via Amazon is offering the 7-inch Iconia One tablet factory refurbished for $49.99 with free shipping.  Originally, the Iconia One ran at $129.99, making this an impressive 62% off deal and the lowest price we’ve seen on a name brand tablet.

The Acer Iconia One features a 7-inch 1280 x 800 display with an Intel Atom Z2560 processor clocked at 1.6GB and paired with 1GB of RAM. While the device will run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean when it arrives, Android 5.0 Lollipop is readily available and can easily be installed. On the back of the device is a 2MP camera, while the front houses a 0.3MP shooter.

Even though the device is refurbished, Acer promises that it shows limited or no wear and includes all original accessories as well as a 90-day hardware warranty.

$50 for an Android tablet is hard to beat, especially one that can run the *almost* latest version of Android. The device has a 4.5 star rating on Amazon and comes in black, blue, purple, and red.

The popular Roomlia hotel savings application for iOS and Android is today launching an interesting newangled loyalty program. Basically, if you stay 7 nights, you will get a night free.

In order to get to that free night, the application will add up the amount you paid each night for your first 7 nights, and then it will credit you back the average. In most cases, this will obviously work out to an eight night free.

The cool parts about the program, which differentiate it from competitors, are that these are actual nights, not days, and the nights can be combined. You don’t need to stay 7 nights in a row to get the credit back toward an either night. You can stay for 3 nights during one trip, and 4 nights on another trip to get up to the 7.

The app is developed by a team made up of former Expedia developers, the application actually has some great deals that beat out some of the competition.

New hotels and supported cities are added each week, and users can book rooms up to 7 days in advance, for up to 5 nights at a time.

The application is free on iOS and Android, and the new loyalty card system launches today.
