Perfect for digital cameras, MP3 players, and other electronics as well. Different capacities for different budgets and needs; the 64GB model pictured here is $35.99 at Amazon.

HTC One M8

glamour_red_amber_gold_htc_one_m8 It’s one of the best reviewed devices on the planet and it’s on sale right now. Pick your carrier (AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon) and choose your favorite color and it’s yours for only $99 (with a two year service agreement). At half its normal price, it’s incredibly tough to pass up. It’s okay, you can get one for yourself, too. Unlike other smartphone makers, HTC will replace it for free during the first six month period should you drop it and break the glass. Go through AT&T right now and you also get a $50 discount on the purchase of Fitbit One or Fitbit Flex fitness tracker. $99 at HTC

Chromecast

Smarten up your TV or that unused monitor and have some fun in the process. $35 at Amazon and Google Play
