So in the whole Black Friday nature of the season there are or soon to be a ton of sales going on right now. I've been asked by a few people online and offline to keep them informed of any that are worthwhile and there's a few going on right now that I had to share with you guys/gals.

First off, Expansys (USA) is selling a Nexus 4 (8 GB) and Nexus 7 2012 (16 GB) for $159.99. It should be noted that both are refurbished, either way if you're in the market for a new phone and tablet and don't want to spend too much on either or both then this is a helluva good deal. Lest we forget, Lollipop recently dropped for both these devices and I for one still think the glass back of the Nexus 4 is sexy as hell.

They are also selling the Nexus 4 (16 GB) with a Nexus 7 2012 (16 GB) for $179.99. Again, not a bad deal. It's only $20 more.

Motorola is currently having a sale on a number of music accessories. For specifics, it's 50% off on a number of items. Keeping in mind this sale ends at 11:59 PM today. So buy before it's gone, gone, gone!

Speaking of kickass sales, NVIDIA is not one to shy away from having a seriously great one come Friday.

At 12:01 AM Friday and continuing until 11:59 PM, you can pick up bundles for either the NVIDIA Shield Tablet (32 GB LTE model) or the SHIELD Portable.

The Shield Tablet bundle also gets you a Shield controller, green box bundle (Half-Life 2: Episode 1, Half-Life 2 and Portal) and NVIDIA's Grid On-Demand game streaming service. Price? $399. If you're in the market for a tablet and one that kicks serious ass you could definitely do a lot worse. In other words, if you've got the funds and the need for a tablet GET THIS ONE!

The Shield Portable bundle gets you a carrying case and glossy black armor. Price? $199. This one is really more of a niche product and I honestly can't find it in my heart to recommend it. If you want it fine, if you don't then that's a wise choice.

Speaking of tablets, Best Buy is having a trade-in promotion right now. Specifically they're offering you at least $100 off the price of the Nexus 9 if you bring in any working tablet. (Excluding any that Barnes and Nobles sell.)

That means you could get the Nexus 9 for $299.99 (for the 16 GB model) or $379.99 (for the 32 GB model). That makes it much more affordable and definitely easier to justify the expenditure to yourself. The fact that it's actually a great device and runs Lollipop is just icing on the already delicious cake. My mom got hers on Day 1 and she absolutely loves it! (And now I need to find where in my best friend's room my Nexus 7 2012 is so I can jump on that 32 GB Nexus 9 for $379.)

Side note, Dodo and Portenzo both will make cases for the Nexus 9. Dodo not until December though. Portenzo is making them already but they won't ship until the first week of December. My mom has the same amount of patience I have for tech goodies, she went with Portenzo cause she could order hers to her liking now. The wait sucks, but for the inconvenience Portenzo is upgrading the shipping on any bought before today and potentially even after. Totally a sweet move on their part, they just made a lifelong fan out of my mom for that alone.

And that's all I have for you all today in regards to some seriously sweet sales/promotions going on right now.

I'm gonna try and do post like these only once a day until there are no more to have to share. If there's any sales that pop up that are incredibly limited (as in only a few hours) then and only then will they get their own separate post rather than waiting to throw them all together in just one for a given day. Just FYI to everyone. I don't do Apple by the way, you want Apple related sales you find them on your own. Android or GTFO! : P

EDIT! Oh yeah, Google is giving away Imagines Dragons Night Visions album for free! This is likely U.S. only but any international readers can chime in if they see it for free for them as well.

Although in all honesty I prefer Lindsey Stirling and Pentatonix's cover of "Radioactive" over the original.
