Best Buy making sample units of Galaxy S 5 and Galaxy Gear 2 available to shoppers starting today

Galaxy-S5-Black

Want to test out the Galaxy S 5 and the new Galaxy Gear line before release date?

Starting today, Best Buy will be making sample units of the devices available to the public in its stores, weeks before their respective launch dates.

This would mark the first time a retailer has ever showcased a phone before its launch. The deal is part of Samsung’s year-old partnership with Best Buy, which brought nearly 1,400 Samsung “experience shops” within select Best Buy locations.

Best Buy’s goal here is preorders, and we’re expecting that number to be pretty high in anticipation for the launch of Samsung’s newest line of Galaxy devices.

[Deal] Best Buy selling Galaxy Gear for $149 for Valentine’s Day

Galaxy-Gear-008-Set1-Side_Six

If you’ve been putting off picking up a Galaxy Gear because of the high launch price, Best Buy might have the solution. As a Valentine’s Day-only special, Best Buy is selling the Gear for $149, half of the original $299 price. You won’t be able to pick up the grey or black colors, but any of the four colors qualify.

We know the Galaxy Gear 2 is coming, we just don’t know when. This price drop could be part of an opportunity for Best Buy to clear out inventory of the new product, so if you always have to have the latest and greatest tech, this may not be such a great deal for you, but ff you’re just looking for a great discount, or possibly even a Valentine’s Day present, this one’s hard to pass up. You can find the store link below.

Best Buy once again offering $50 gift card with upgrades and number ports

Best-Buy-Godfather

Best Buy is once again offering store gift cards for customers that upgrade their device or port their numbers over to another carrier. This of course only pertains to Verizon, AT&T and Sprint as T-Mobile no longer does contracts. The great thing about this is you only have to register between February 2 and February 15th, and once you’ve registered you have until the end of the year (December 31) to upgrade and receive your $50 Best Buy gift card.

Any phone you’re eyeing right now? Or waiting for perhaps the successors to the Galaxy S 4 and HTC One?

Chromebook 11 re-appears in Play Store, overheating issues fixed

Chromebook 11

Remember when Google and HP recalled the Chromebook 11 because of overheating charger issues? Well the device is back and better than ever with a (hopefully) perfectly working charger— you can get one now for $279, the same price it was being offered for before.

If you need a refresher on the specs, it packs an Exynos 5250 processor, 2GB RAM, a 1366 x 768 display.

Some extra information just came in as well— Best Buy has the Chromebook 11 with Verizon LTE connectivity listed online as well. This variant costs $379 with a potential $50 mail-in rebate. You can add it to a shared data plan for only $10 if you’re up for it.

Moto G on Verizon to be available for $99 as soon as they arrive

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 will be available at Verizon Wireless on January 9 for $99 off contract

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.
