#GreenIsGood sale: HTC is taking $150 off the HTC 10 — but only until October 8

htc greenisgood campaign green is good
Interested in buying the HTC 10 but not so hot on the price tag? HTC has launched a new campaign called #GreenIsGood that will run from October 1-8, and essentially offers $150 off the HTC 10 in any color you want. With the sale price, the device will cost $550 unlocked. The campaign is only available in the U.S.

That HTC 10 will also come with UH-OH protection — which means that if it accidentally cracks or gets water damage during the first 12 months of ownership, HTC will replace it for free. Last but not least, the campaign offers you the chance to enter to win prizes, although it doesn’t say exactly what those prizes are.

The HTC 10 isn’t the only device on sale through the promotion, although it is the most powerful. The device, which has been very positively reviewed, boasts a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB of RAM, options for either 32GB or 64GB of RAM, and a really nice camera, especially compared to past HTC cameras.

Also on sale are the HTC Desire 626 and 626s, which will be offered at $80 off, and have decidedly midrange specs, although at a very decent price. The device comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a 13MP rear-facing camera. With the sale, the $180 phone will come at a super-cheap $100.

Next up is the UA Healthbox, which is being sold for $100 off, or $300. The Healthbox includes a range of health-tracking products, including a fitness band, a smart scale, and a heart rate tracker. You can also buy the UA Band by itself, which will come at $120 ($60 off), and lets you track things like sleep, resting heart rate, activity, workout intensity, and so on.
