Here are our top choices for bargains this week:
A Flagship Android Phone for Free
With all due respect to iPhone fans, Android is where it’s at when it comes to quick deals on high-end phones. The Samsung Galaxy S6 was released just a month ago, and already Sprint is offering the well-reviewed handset for free. Of course, there’s a catch, as there always is when buying subsidized phones: You must activate a new two-year Unlimited Plus Plan contract in the process. However, if you don’t want to pay the full, unsubsidized price for a smartphone, you’ll likely always have to sign a two-year contract. And, considering this 32GB phone also comes with a monthly $20 bill credit, this hardly seems like a downside. Overall you’ll save $200.
Become a Jetsetter for Less
The best way to travel cheaply is to be flexible about where you go and when. That is, you have to be ready to strike while the iron is hot — and it doesn’t get much hotter than this Virgin America airfare sale. The promo is listed as having one-way flights for as low as $69, but we even found routes going for less than that. Las Vegas to San Francisco, for example, checks in at $38.10 on June 2. That translates into the cheapest rates we’ve ever seen from Virgin America, an airline that consistently ranks highly in industry and user reviews. Of course, you’ll have to be willing to take to the skies soon, as this sale is only valid for flights from May 16 through June 10. Sale ends May 31.
If none of the dates or locations in that sale appeal to your needs, consider booking a full vacation through Expedia while the site offers the flight portion of your trip for free. Since all you’ll have to pay for is the hotel, this is understandably one of the best sales we’ve ever seen from Expedia, and it’ll save you hundreds on your next vacation. The sale includes hotel stays in New York, Chicago, Dallas, Washington D.C., and more, but be sure to check out our list of the top five budget friendly cities to visit in 2015 for some inspiration. Naturally, some exclusions and blackout dates apply.
Save Big on the Latest From Apple
Although it’s become more common to see discounts on Apple products from resellers, it’s still an exciting week when we find a Mac on sale! DigJungle via eBay — a very reputable seller with more than 11,000 positive reviews in the past year — is currently selling the diminutive 11.6″ Apple MacBook Air for $749.99. Not only is that a great discount — it’s $150 less than what Apple charges — but it’s especially noteworthy since this model is barely a month old, having just been released in March of this year. If this deal has piqued your interest though, don’t delay in buying it; Apple deals rarely stick around for very long.
Get Ready for Patio Parties
If you’re not able to take a trip this summer, the least you can do is find the time to relax with a staycation — and nothing gets a summer afternoon going quite like frozen treats. At $159.99, this Margaritaville Key West Frozen Concoction Maker is an astounding $140 off, which leaves you plenty of cash leftover to splurge on the “ingredients” to make said drinks.
