Nook HD and HD+ are on sale again

The week before Mother’s Day Barnes & Noble slashed prices for its Nook HD and Nook HD+ tablets. Last week, the bookseller did it again, this time ahead of Father’s Day. That sale was supposed to end yesterday, but this morning B&N announced that they’re extending the price cuts until … they decide to stop. If you missed out on getting a $130 Nook HD or a $150 Nook HD+, now you have more time to gather your pennies. The sale is back on.

We don’t have a time frame for when this sale will end, making it hard to tell if urgency is required. It could go on for months since the official reasoning is that B&N wants to help customers “gear up for a great summer reading season.” Or it could go on until there are no more Nook HD and HD+ units in stock. That’s a disturbing notion, but wouldn’t be completely unexpected. Rumors have swirled for a while now that Barnes & Noble intends to sell off the Nook Media division. This could amount to a clearance sale, but that raises the question of whether you want to buy a tablet with an uncertain future, even at a low price.

There are reasons to go ahead and jump on this. The Nook HD and Nook HD+ are both good tablets with great design, beautiful screens, and access to the Google Play Store. We like them both, but the Nook HD+ in particular stands out as one of the least expensive yet still good tablets in the 9- to 10-inch size.

You can get the heavily discounted Nooks at, Barnes & Noble stores, or any of the retail partners like Best Buy and Radio Shack.

iPhone SE 2022 (64GB) -- $149, was $379

The Apple iPhone SE 2022 is the latest iteration of the budget iPhone series, but it's not limited at all in most aspects. It's powered by Apple's A15 Bionic chip, which is the same processor in the iPhone 14 series, so it's snappy and responsive, and it's protected by the Touch ID fingerprint recognition system. Its 4.7-inch Retina HD display is relatively small, but for those who prefer compact screens, it may be the perfect size. The 64GB of storage space may no longer be enough for some people, but you can support that by signing up for an iCloud subscription.
