Major phone carriers run a lot of sales and promos throughout the year, but if you’re not in the market for a new phone or data plan, then Verizon is currently offering some other discounts for the month of August. These limited-time Verizon deals include a handful of great mobile tech, from Google’s new VR headset to a few awesome Bluetooth gadgets, at discounts of up to $70 off.
Google’s Daydream View is giving the Samsung Gear VR a serious run for its money as the best low-cost Android virtual reality headset. Its main drawback right now is that — as it’s still relatively new to the market — it is only compatible with a handful of smartphones at the moment. Thankfully, Google is keeping the Daydream View an open platform for VR developers, so expect to see a slew of new phones, apps, games, and more coming out for this excellent headset throughout 2017 and 2018.
If you own a compatible smartphone and want to take the plunge into the world of virtual reality, the Daydream view is hard to beat for the price. Through Saturday, August 5, a $20 discount means you can snag Google’s awesome VR headset for just $60 from Verizon.
More great Verizon deals
Maybe the Daydream View isn’t what you’re looking for right now, or perhaps it whetted your appetite for more portable gadgets. Whatever the case, here are a few more limited-time Verizon deals for you to check out:
- BeatsX in-ear Bluetooth headphones: Bluetooth headphones like the top-notch in-ear BeatsX are invaluable when you’re in the move, and the Beats lineup should need no introduction. A $50 discount brings the BeatsX earphones down to $100 until August 6.
- Ultimate Ears Boom 2 Bluetooth speaker: With its 360-degree sound and waterproof rating, the Boom 2 Bluetooth speaker is a great outdoor-friendly alternative to the Amazon Tap. Through August 5, you can take a solid $70 off of the Boom 2, knocking the normal $200 price down to just $130.
- Fitbit Charge 2 heart rate and fitness tracker: Although the Fitbit Charge 2 itself is not on sale, Verizon is offering some cash back when you spend $200 or more. This excellent heart rate and fitness tracker comes in at $150, so if you buy it together with some other stuff on our list and enter the code GET50BACK at checkout, you’ll receive a $50 Visa gift card through Saturday.
- JBL Clip 2 portable Bluetooth speaker: For a smaller Bluetooth speaker than the Boom 2, check out the super-compact (and totally waterproof) JBL Clip 2. The first version of the Clip was one of our favorite wireless speakers last year, but the Clip 2 is even better and can now be yours for $50 for the entire month of August after a $10 discount.
