If you’re building your collection of cool devices, or if you have some specific tech you’re looking to purchase, it’s important to get the best prices. Different sites are often running their own promotions, and sometimes major manufacturers themselves will offer limited time deals.
Keeping up with all of these sales might seem tricky, but there are actually a number of sites you can use to keep track of current tech deals. Here are just a few you can bookmark and head back to every day!
The Tom’s Guide website features many different pages with how tos and product suggestions. Their Best Tech Deals page (currently titled “Best Tech Deals of 2018”) is updated every day with a collection of great deals. They mention some of the overall best deals, then show deals based on different categories, like laptops and smart watches. Since it’s updated so regularly, you can be sure you’re not wasting your time looking over deals that have already expired.
PC Mag is a hugely popular site that features news, how tos, and perhaps most importantly, detailed product reviews. They’re well-respected when it comes to their reviews. Their Best Deals Today page is, of course, updated daily. There are several categories, including laptops and gaming. The page is arranged in a slightly overwhelming way, with quite a lot of information, but the information is all useful and relevant, making it easier to spot which deals are the right fit for you.
CNET is another very popular site that’s well-known for its product reviews. They’re also popular for their news articles. On their Deals & Promotions page, they might offer over a thousand different suggestions for current deals. You can click the check boxes on the side of the page to narrow down what you’re looking for, including things like tablets and televisions.
Amazon’s Deals page is not quite the same as the others. Instead of linking to various different outlets (like Walmart, Newegg, etc.), you’ll obviously only see deals for products you can purchase on Amazon. This means it’s not really an aggregator like the other sites and you might miss some good deals that aren’t available on Amazon. However, if you prefer to purchase using Amazon Prime, or if you want to find more than you might spot on the other sites, Amazon’s Deals in Electronics can offer some good buys. You can see currently available deals, and you can even see which deals are coming soon. And they show deals on Amazon devices (like the Echo Dot), so it’s a good place to check if you’re in the market for a new smart speaker or tablet.

Amazon is now offering their Prime membership cheaper to another range of people—those who are on Medicaid.
Amazon’s Prime service offers free two-day shipping for eligible items, streaming shows and movies, music, borrowed ebooks, cloud storage for photos, and more. It can often be considered pricey for some, despite the many different benefits. Because of the $99 yearly charge (or $12.99 monthly charge), it simply hasn’t been affordable for a lot of people. Amazon’s new discount will hopefully change this.
Amazon already provided another way to get a membership on the cheap. Amazon Prime Student offers Prime memberships to students for about half the yearly price ($49 instead of $99). Students simply have to provide information to Amazon that proves they’re currently enrolled as a student. This discount can be used for up to 4 years, as long as proof is provided during each year’s renewal.
Now more people will be able to join Prime without killing their budget. Amazon’s monthly charge for Prime is normally $12.99, but for those who receive Medicaid, it will only be $5.99. This is a significant discount, not only compared to the normal monthly charge, but even compared to the yearly charge. A year’s subscription to Prime is $99, but for Medicaid recipients, Prime membership will add up to a little more than $70 for the 12 months.
Medicaid is used by millions of people. CNN reported last year that 74 million people were on Medicaid. This number includes adults and children.
According to Amazon’s discount page, those with an EBT or Medicaid card must provide proof that they’re eligible for the discounted service. Then they can sign up and get Prime for less than half of what it typically costs on a monthly basis. For more information, head over to Amazon’s website to get started.
I love Halloween.
From October 1st through Halloween night I will watch The Nightmare Before Christmas many, many times. I will listen to Halloween music at my desk. I will demand that the skeleton and ghost decorations are put up immediately. I will imagine new ways to make our annual Halloween get-together with friends and family more entertaining and exciting.
So I was super excited when we decided to change the website theme to reflect the spirit of the holiday. Then, on top of that, we’re doing this amazing giveaway of Amazon Firesticks. It’s just making the best month of the year even better! If you haven’t entered to win one of the four Amazon Firesticks we’re giving away this month you should right now! Click Here to Enter
Firesticks are amazing, and if you’re not familiar with them yet you’re going to be pretty impressed. We’re all about the cord cutting here at EIN, and most of simply stream our favorite shows and movies at home without the need for a cable or satellite system. Firesticks make it so much easier to get rid of terrible cable TV and satellite contracts. You just plug them into the side of your HDTV into an open HDMI port, plug them into power (usually you can just do that by using the available USB port on the back or side of your TV), and boom you’ve got a smart TV! You can access your Netflix, Hulu, HBO, and even live channels with a subscription to a service like DirecTV Now!
So when you’re waiting for the next group of Trick-or-Treater’s to come to your door and threaten to egg your house if you don’t give them the full-size candy bars you can enjoy all your favorite content right on your TV. Then, when they egg your house anyway you can ignore it while watching a new release on HBO, or an amazing new series on Netflix. I hope you’ve entered, and I really hope you’re a winner because I love these devices and I think you will too!
Even if you don’t win a new Amazon Firestick I don’t want to get tricked – so here’s a nice promo code for your Trick-or-Treat bag. Use promo code Treat2017 and get $10 off any new order in October! Happy Halloween everyone!
