Moto_G_Main_TA

According to a story we reported on yesterday, the Motorola Moto G was going to be going on sale starting January 9th for only $99 off contract with Verizon. The new smartphone will be available through Verizon retail locations and Best Buy at this price. Apparently the leaks regarding this pricing have prompted a reversal of the policy of holding the devices until January 9th and at least Best Buy will sell them as soon as the devices are physically delivered to their stores.

Best Buy spokesman Jonathan Sandler told the LA Times, “the phone is currently landing in stores and is available for sale as soon as it arrives.” Verizon has not commented on the availability of the Moto G or the special pricing.

Moto-G-Verizon-Retail-Packaging

Retail packaging for the Moto G leaked along with a Best Buy memo stating that it shouldn’t be sold until January 9. The best of all this is the price. According to the tipster, the price will be $99 off contract, which is absolutely incredible. The Moto G has been selling for $179, so this is a little surprising, but perhaps it is a sale price for a limited time? Hit the break for the memo.

Best Buy has a belated Christmas present for us. The electronics superstore is offering the Nexus 7 at just $199, which is $30 off the suggested retail price. That’s not all though, as the store is also giving buyers a free $25 Google Play gift card to go along with their new tablet. The deal is just for the 16GB device, as the 32GB device is still running at its full price of $269.

As a reminder, the Nexus 7 has a 7-inch LCD screen Android 4.4, 16GB of internal storage an a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. It’s unclear just how long this deal will last, so hop on it fast, via the source link, if you’re interested.

Haven’t gotten your hands on a Chromecast yet? Well, now is probably the best time to do so. At Amazon and Best Buy, Google’s HDMI dongle is available for just $29.99, down from the usual $35 price. And if you are a member of Amazon Student, you can take off an additional $5 so you just have to pay $24. If you are on the fence, take a look at what Google plans on doing with it in 2014. And for now, it seems that more developers are jumping at the opportunity to develop for the cheap, yet powerful device.

Ah yes, I love this time of the year. It’s deal central and if you’re in the market for a Samsung Galaxy S 4, Best Buy has the deal for you. The best part of it is that it’s already live so you can beat the Black Friday rush. You can grab either the AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon Galaxy S 4 for Free on contract. This includes new lines as well as upgrades, plus they are offering all colors.

This happens to be one of Best Buy’s 6:00pm Thanksgiving Day doorbuster deals, but they decided to start today. The sale will run though November 30, but don’t hesitate because you don’t know when they will run out.

Verizon Chromecast

Verizon is now offering the Chromecast on its site for $34.99, the same standard price that the device is being sold for on Google Play, Best Buy stores, and on Motorola’s site.

However, the carrier has sweetened the deal for those who receive corporate discounts— they’re offering the Chromecast with a 25% off offer. If you’re looking to grab Google’s wireless HDMI dongle, this definitely is a solid way to get one.
