Amazon has a great deal in its Gold Box today, which is for the Sphero R2-D2 App-Enabled Droid. This is for a certified refurbished model, which is $69.99 right now. That's not a huge discount, given that this is a certified refurbished model, and the new model is priced at $99.99. But definitely worth picking up, and it's good today only – ending at midnight PST.
The Sphero R2-D2 App-Enabled Droid is the perfect gift for any Star Wars fan – especially if they have a birthday coming up. It does work with both Android and iOS, using the Sphero app, so no matter which smartphone you have, you can use it with the Sphero R2-D2. It provides authentic movement and also has working lights on both the front and back. So it's like having your own personal R2-D2, which is definitely pretty cool. It also has holographic simulation, so you can pretend like you are actually in the Star Wars movie. Sphero is a licensed Star Wars toy-maker, and has actually made many other Star Wars toys in recent years, after the franchise got revived. Including the BB-8 and many others. So this isn't a counterfeit or a fake, but a real licensed and authentic Star Wars toy. So it's definitely worth picking up.
This item is also eligible for Amazon Prime's free shipping. Which includes free two-day shipping, and pretty cheap (usually $3.99) next-day shipping if you need it extra fast. If you are not an Amazon Prime member yet, you can sign up for a free trial of Amazon Prime. You'll get 30 days free (if you're a student, you get 6 months), and then it's $99/year (or $49/year for students). Prime members do get a whole lot more than just free shipping though, so be sure to check out the full benefits.
