Give your loved one's phone some extra storage for their favorite movies, music, or even pictures of you. Most Android, BlackBerry, and Windows phones can accept a micro SD card (about the size of your fingernail) that can boost capacity by up to 64GB—enough for 25 high-quality movies, or tens of thousands of songs, photos, and video clips. MicroSD cards come with adapters, too, so you can also use them with your desktop or laptop PC. Too bad iPhones lack such a slot. Three great deals:
Sandisk 64 GB Class 10 Micro SDXC and Adapter, which claims transfer speeds up to 30 mbps and is waterproof, temperature-proof, X-ray proof, and shock-proof. You'll find it at Costco for $34, which is $21 off its regular price. The PNY 16GB Micro SDHC Card and adapter, also at Costco, is marked down to $7.99 from its $29.99 price tag. And RadioShack is offering the SanDisk Ultra 64GB MicroSDXC UHS-I Card for $40—$20 off the regular price.
If you have friend with a Samsung smart phone, the online retailer Tanga.com has suedelike flip-cover cases for the the Samsung Galaxy S 3, Galaxy S 4, and Note 2 that protect the phone's screen when it is not in use and are easily flipped open for access to devices' screens. Marked down from their regular $30 price to $4, these cases snap on easily, replacing the phones' standard battery cover without making them bulky.
The S-View Cover for the Samsung Galaxy S 4, also $4, has a cutout that lets you see the time and other notifications when the cover is flipped over the phone's screen. The cover's auto wake-up function activates the phone's screen when the cover is flipped open. You can even receive and reject calls without opening the case.
And if you know someone with an iPhone 5c, consider the AceAbove Protek Air External 2,200mAh Battery Case for iPhone 5c, available at ctcstore.com for $34.95 (regularly $70). Besides giving you an extra day's worth of power, the case comes with an earphone extension, charging switch, and LED battery life indicator. The deal ends Nov. 23.
Walmart has a few accessories in its Black Friday circular, too. Zagg screen protectors for several phones, normally about $15, will sell for $9.88, and the ONN 6-in-one smart-phone accessory kit for $14.88. We've seen similar products selling for as much as twice that.
