Deal: Save $50 on BLU R1 Plus, pay just $110

Deal: Save $50 on BLU R1 Plus, pay just $110

The BLU R1 Plus was only just launched yesterday but it’s already on sale. Over at Amazon, for the next fifteen hours or so, you can pick up a BLU R1 Plus for $109.99 (that’s $50 off its normal price). Best Buy also has the R1 Plus at the same price but doesn’t have a scary countdown clock like Amazon.

If a new phone shipping with Marshmallow doesn’t put you off, this is a pretty good price, especially when you consider this is the 32 GB version with 3 GB of RAM. Other BLU R1 Plus specs include a 5.5-inch HD display, quad-core MediaTek 6737 chipset clocked at 1.3 GHz, 13 MP/8 MP camera combo (both of which have a LED flash), 4,000 mAh battery, dual-SIM, microSD and 4G LTE Plus (only for AT&T and T-Mobile).

Deal: Get $200 off foldable ZTE Axon M at Best Buy

Deal: Get $200 off foldable ZTE Axon M at Best Buy

Deal: Get $200 off foldable ZTE Axon M at Best Buy

The ZTE Axon M looks like a concept phone come to life, but the reality of actually using ZTE’s dual-screened oddity doesn’t quite match the dream. Unlike the Axon 7, the Shenzhen-based firm’s no-nonsense, mid-tier crowd-pleaser from 2016, its sort-of successor is an entirely different beast with a unique, foldable design tailor-made for multitasking.

While the twin display set-up comes with a few inherent issues that we highlighted in our full review, the phone’s real bum note was its low price-performance ratio. When you’re paying over $700 for a device, it’s fair to expect top-tier specs and a smooth experience, but the Axon M doesn’t quite hit the mark here.

Deal: Save up to 95 percent on Marvel Comics Amazon Kindle collections

On Thursday, Amazon’s Kindle customers discovered that virtually the entire lineup of Marvel Comics’ digital collections were heavily discounted, some by as much as 95 percent. Many assumed these huge price cuts were just glitches on Amazon’s side, but this unannounced massive sale is still live, as of this writing. As a result, there may not be a better time to grab a bunch of great Marvel Comics Kindle collections for almost nothing.

To give you an idea of how big this sale is, I jumped on it Thursday night and bought a bunch of digital trade paperbacks, including Avengers Vs X-Men for just $8, Secret Wars for just $3.40 and a bunch of others for only $1.80 each. The sale also includes many of Marvel’s Star Wars comic collections as well.
