The problem with crowdfunding projects is that you can never know which ones to trust. They all look great on paper, but making new products with limited resources can be challenging for some startups — assuming they don’t plan to rip off excited buyers in the first place. But there are great projects coming out of Kickstarter and Indiegogo, and retailers are starting to pay attention to them. Amazon already set up its own virtual shop for startups, and Best Buy is about to follow suit.
The Apple Watch is one of the best wearable devices money can buy, as long as money isn’t a problem.

Remember back in the day when people waited all year long for Black Friday to roll around so they could enjoy killer deals? Well those days are long gone.

But Prime Day is over and now there’s another huge sale you won’t want to miss out on. That’s right, Best Buy has a fantastic sale going on right now and in this post, we’ll show you the 10 best deals available. More →

Samsung shipped more than 81 million smartphones in the most recent quarter, according to market research firm Gartner. The company’s successful flagship smartphone launch was obviously a big driver for Samsung in the first quarter as it enjoyed its fastest profit growth in three years. Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are clearly the sleekest and most powerful smartphones the company has ever launched, but they also got a helping hand from some serious advertising and marketing campaigns. On top of that, sales were no doubt bolstered by the fact that carriers were offering buy-one-get-one campaigns before the new flagship phones even launched.
If you missed out on a BOGO deal, don’t feel too bad because another nice incentive just popped up. More →
Anyone who has tried virtual reality will tell you that there’s really no way to explain it to someone who has never experienced it before. That’s why this news should excite those of you who haven’t had a chance to try it yourselves.

The Galaxy S7 is Samsung’s best phone ever, but it doesn’t come cheap. The good news is you don’t have to pay for it all at once and there are plenty of buying options for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge out there. Walmart currently offers a $150 discount on the Galaxy S7, but Best Buy’s got an even better deal for you. The retailer will give you a $200 gift card for any working smartphone, which is valid towards an on-contract Galaxy S7 purchase. The company said that customers who are on installment billing plans can also get the $200 gift card as long as they trade in a smartphone.
The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge have been finally been unveiled during Samsung’s first major event of the year. And just as we thought, the consistent Galaxy S7 leaks were completely accurate. The design, specs and special features were all unearthed before the major event in Barcelona, but the rumors detailing preorder details weren’t exactly on the money.
The phones are launching soon, and Best Buy has an offer you should carefully consider before investing in a new Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge. More →
