expiredApple Watch sale at Best Buy, $50 off across the board, starting at $299 shipped (Open box $278)

Best Buy is knocking $50 off the price of Apple Watch across the board making the base price 38mm Sport model $299 with free shipping, the lowest price we’ve found from a major retailer. Best Buy has most (but not all) of the popular configurations with some open boxes starting as low as $277.99 (those seem to be selling out fast).

Base Model 42mm are going for $349 and stainless steel Apple Watch starts at $499.

We already know that Target, Best Buy and others will have big Black Friday discounts on the Apple Watch but only with gift cards or ambiguous “up to $100 off” the likely higher end models. It is hard to imagine anything more than $50 taken off the base models this year so if you are going to get a base model, now might be the time to jump in –especially if you have some Best Buy credit burning a hole in your pocket.

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.

Update (1/23 11:46am): the discount code available in this post has now expired.

If you are an iMac user you like nice things. Reaching around to the back of your iMac every time you want to plug in a USB object is not nice. Sure there are options out there. You could drop $15 on a wrap around cord or buy a nice aluminum USB 3 hub (this nice Satechi 7 port is $40 or Powered Anker is $44 or many others have existed for awhile).

If you want something that looks like it came from Apple however, check out the iMacompanion. It is a single USB 3 port that carries the power and speed of the iMac’s USB 3 (also USB 2 compatible for older models) to the base of your iMac. It has a flat USB cord that will snake under your iMac and to the back USB port. All the instructions you need are in the following graphic and a 15% off offer follows:
