Motorola Moto G5 Plus for $210 [Prime only]

As flagship smartphone prices keep climbing, so is the average consumer’s interest in alternative bang for the buck smartphones. One such line is the Motorola G series, especially the “all carrier” phones, the ones that work out of the box with all four major US carriers. Among them is the G5 Plus with the 4GB RAM and 64GB storage option. And if you are a Prime member, you can buy ONE unit on sale for $210 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself. This is fully unlocked with USA warranty. Amazon no longer has lockscreen ads, they just pre-install their apps and widgets on the phones.

NOTE that this phone does not have NFC (no contactless mobile payments with it) and it is microUSB power (no USB-C). At this price range, even if it had USB-C, it would likely be USB 2.0, not USB 3.*. It has a fingerprint reader and a headphone jack though which can be a plus for security and convenience.

If you are interested in bang for the buck phones discussion, save this date, on Thursday 3/29/18 at 9pm eastern, the PhoneCast YouTube channel is going to have a live-stream with another YouTube who specializes in bang-for-the-buck phones.

FREE Apple Care+ with select Apple MacBook PROs

Remember, the clock is ticking on the various B&H offers if you want them to ship before they close for Passover 2018. The deadline is Thursday 7pm eastern. Among the latest offers running is FREE AppleCare+ Protection on select Apple MacBook PRO laptops. A total of six 15.4″ options are available with prices ranging from $2100 to $3300.

The free Apple Care+ is included automatically by B&H Photo while this promotion is running. It goes for $379 if purchased separately! Highlight screenshot example below:

Pre-order new 9.7″ “Educational” iPad, Get $25 e-Gift Card

Apple’s Education Event yesterday revealed a new iPad targeting education, but also generating a lot of interest among the general consumer looking for a $300-ish iPad with support for the Apple Pencil (aka digital stylus). For consumers, this new 9.7″ inch iPad is available for pre-ordering for $330 with a $25 Best Buy e-gift-card at the Best Buy website. The $330 price is for the base Wifi-only model with 32GB storage.

The prices increase as usual with more storage, the 128GB goes for $430 (the usual +$100 storage tier bump). Meanwhile the 32GB Cellular model goes for $460 and the 128GB Cellular goes for $560 (the usual +$130 bump).

OF photography interest is support for the Apple Pencil. The Apple pencil is NOT included. It is also compatible with the upcoming Logitech Crayon.

The iPads are still not available for purchase by Amazon itself (various 3rd-party sellers offer them but not Amazon itself), so the iPad tablet market is still doing okay. If they were close to the panic button, they’d be sold by Amazon itself as well 🙂

Lifetime VPN subscriptions for $40 (five devices) or $69 (unlimited)

If you have need of VPNs, and prefer lifetime subscriptions instead of annual, two of the top three Best Sellers at Stacksocial are lifetime subscription VPNs.

The VPN Unlimited service costs $40 for five devices (you can add/remove devices once a week). This is a lifetime membership. You don’t pay anything else after that. It supports Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, and Windows Phone too! Lifetime is defined as 100 years. The terms under “Specs” have this LOL:

“Lifetime’ subscription adds 100 years of unlimited access to VPN servers. KeepSolid will gladly extend this period by your request.”

On the other hand if you have a lot of devices and you like to upgrade and trade and switch phones and laptops and tablets often, the Windscribe VPN: Lifetime Pro Subscription costs $69 and you can have as many devices as you like. It supports Windows, OS X, Linux and iOS. Android app is “coming soon” per the specs. The lifetime must be renewed every ten years with a Support request. Was this VPN created by former DMV employees? 🙂
