Save $47 on this 2TB Seagate External Hard Drive at Amazon for Black Friday

Black Friday is less than two days away but that doesn’t mean you have to wait until November 27 for the best Black Friday deals on external hard drives. In fact, let’s take a look at one of the best Amazon Black Friday deals around for an external hard drive: A 2TB Seagate Backup Plus Slim that costs just $53.

If you need spacious amounts of storage and portability at a price that’s easy on your wallet, then look no further than this external hard drive from Seagate. (And if you still want to shop around for other external hard drives, be sure and check out our guide to the best Black Friday external hard drive deals.)

Generally, it can be difficult to find a lightweight external hard drive that also boasts a massive storage capacity. Especially if you need one that’s less than $100. But thanks to Black Friday and Amazon, you really can have it all because the Seagate Backup Plus Slim is only 4.6 ounces and still offers 2TB of storage. And since you’d only be paying $53 for a hard drive that normally sells for nearly twice that at $100, you’d be getting 2TB for a steal!

But there’s more to the Seagate Backup Plus Slim than just its storage capacity. With this deal you would also be getting an external hard drive that is compatible with both MacOS and Windows, has an easy-to-use plug and play connectivity with its support for USB 3.0, and native tools like customizable backups and folder mirroring. If this is your first external drive, this deal from Seagate is a great way to start getting into the habit of backing up your work at a very affordable price.

However, if this external hard drive still doesn’t fit your needs, you may want to take a look at another comparable deal: the 1TB Western Digital Easystore. You’ll get an 1TB of storage space and the same easy-to-use connectivity with USB 3.0. With this deal, you’ll still get quite a bit of storage at an even lower price: just $48.

TextNow Buyer’s Guide (January 2021)

Everyone knows the top-tier wireless service providers in Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. What about lesser known, or newer, brands like Tello, Mint Mobile, or Net10?Some of these companies might be a better fit for US consumers as they provide a more specialized package that fits their needs or budget. Let’s take a look at a relatively unknown carrier, TextNow.This guide will serve to help you understand what the MVNO offers and how it competes in the mobile arena.AboutTextNow is a somewhat newer player in the mobile space, having gotten its start back in 2009 as a Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) for making Wi-Fi calls. Today it operates as Mobile Virtual Network Operator that piggybacks on other cellular networks for coverage. It employs Sprint’s network for CDMA but it operates with its own plans and features.TextNow uses Wi-Fi for its preferred coverage, falling back on GSM or LTE for calls, text, and data. By going this route, it is able to offer much more competitive rates than traditional carriers. According to TextNow, its average consumer rate plan is just $19 per month.Rate PlansTextNow rate plans are no-contract, meaning you can go month-to-month with no long-term agreement, cancellation, or activation fees. It also offers a 30-day money back guarantee.TextNow does not charge for going over your allotted data. Hit your threshold and you’ll find your speeds slowed for the remainder of the billing cycle.Indeed, you can sign up for TextNow and have access to nationwide calling and texting at no cost. You’ll get all the standard features like call forwarding, caller ID, and voicemail, but you’ll see ads within the TextNow app.TextNow’s paid plans range from $10 to $40 per month, and remove advertisements. Included in the $20 and $40 options are set amounts of high speed data over the CDMA (Sprint) network. Moreover, consumers can also take advantage of mobile hotspot or data sharing.$10/month: Unlimited Talk and Text$20/month: Unlimited Talk and Text with 2GB of high-speed data$40/month: Unlimited Talk and Text with unlimited high-speed data*Those who go over 23GB of high-speed data in one month may see their speeds slowed for the remainder of the billing cycle. This is a small segment of users, to be sure, but still worth noting.Any other TextNow features worth noting?TextNow offers affordable international calling to a wide array of countries. Examples include 2.2¢ per minute to China and 1.8¢ per minute to India.Customers can add credits to their account by completing an offer, installing other apps, sharing to social media, or watching ads. Credits vary but an example might be 2¢ credit for viewing a 30-second advertisement.Handset SelectionTaking a look at the current lineup of phones offered through TextNow we find just a small handful of models from LG, Motorola, and Apple. The handsets definitely skew toward the lower end of performance but that doesn’t mean they are not capable devices.Which carrier has the best value at $50 a month?Which major prepaid carrier has the best $40 rate plan?Selection includes the Motorola Moto E5 Play, Motorola G7 Play, and LG Stylo 4 Plus.Bring Your Own DeviceFeel free to use any existing Sprint phone just so long as there’s no unpaid balance on another network. You can also, of course, bring an unlocked device, too.
