Good Deals for Today: Nexus 6 and 2nd Gen Moto X on sale with heavy discounts, HTC One M9 bundled with free gift card
We always appreciate a good deal on an awesome smartphone. If we can get more than one deal, the day turns to perfect. What can you score today? The Nexus 6 and the 2nd Gen Moto X are on sale with heavy discounts, while the HTC One M9 is now bundled with a free gift card. Let’s take a closer look at the sales.
Deal on Nexus 6
A couple of days ago Google surprised its fans by significantly slashing the price of the Motorola Nexus 6. The discount amounts to $150 and brings the price of the 32GB and 64GB models to $499 and $549, respectively. In case you weren’t following the Nexus 6 pricing, it’s the lowest it has ever been. We thought that the promotion would be exclusive to the Google Store, but it appears it’s not.
Two of the largest retailers, Amazon and Best Buy, followed Google’s lead and dropped the Nexus 6 price to the same level. Regardless of where you order the device, you will get free shipping. However, if time is your priority, Amazon is your best choice, since the retailer offers Prime shipping for those who are members. You should also know, that Best Buy is selling only the Midnight Blue model, while Amazon has on offer both color options, that is Midnight Blue and Cloud White.
It’s the first that big discount on the Nexus 6. However, since the device was released November 2014, it’s slowly getting old which means that we can expect similar or even more generous price cuts in the future.
Deal on HTC One M9 and 2nd Gen Moto X
If the 6-inch Nexus 6 is too large for you, Best Buy has another deal on a smaller but still very capable smartphone – the 2nd Gen Moto X. The retailer is selling the AT&T and Verizon model of the device for $299.99 without contract.
For comparison, if you were to order the Moto X (2nd Gen) directly from Motorola, you would have to pay $499.99. In other words, Best Buy promotion will allow you to save $200. The retailer is offering the phone only in black which may be a deterring factor for some, but if you are not too picky about colors, it’s probably the best deal on the new Moto X you can currently find.
If you were thinking about getting yourself the HTC One M9 from Best Buy, now is a good time to do so, since the phone is bundled with a little gift. Customers who buy the gray or silver One M9 on AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon will receive a $50 gift card, which you will be able to use for example to buy some cool accessories for your new handset.
The Moto X and HTC One M9 deals expire on Saturday, so you still have a couple of days to decide whether the offer is for you. As far as the Nexus 6 promotion is concerned, we don’t know any dates but it’s more than likely that the discount is not permanent. That said, if you want to grab Google’s latest phablet at a lower price, you’d better not wait too long, since there is no way to tell how long the deal will last.
