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


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


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


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.
