Welcome to Daily Deals, the post where we search for great offers on gadgets and tech for you, the discerning MacNN and Electronista reader. Alongside a recap of still-active deals from yesterday, today's deals include an 89 percent savings on a RapidWeaver 6 bundle, a triple-pack of Seagate external drives, and a mobile color scanner from Brother for $75.

As usual, note that all deals are correct at the time of going to press, but may change in the future, so check first before completing the purchase. Also, remember to come back to this post later, as new deals will be added to the list as the day goes on. If you spot a deal we've missed, please email us and we may add it later on.

New Deals

Newegg.com's shell shocker deal of the day today is on a three-pack of Seagate 1.5TB USB portable external hard drives. Individually, these drives would be $70 each, or $210 total; however, they have been reduced to $150 for all three, for an individual average price of $50. That's nearly $100 less than buying these drives individually anywhere else.

Save $55 on the Brother DS-620 color mobile scanner, today only at Staples.com. It was $130, but has been cut to $75. That's $20 less than the next-lowest price.

Today at Meh.com, get a two pack of Belkin QODE Slim keyboard cases for only $10 with $5 for shipping. That's $90 off the list price. The lowest price we found for one of these elsewhere was $25.

Ending today at TigerDirect.com is a combo of discounts on the PNY 32GB Turbo Flash drive with USB 3.0. It was $30, but was reduced by 40 percent to $18. Use coupon code JRT152383 at checkout to drop the final price down to $13, beating the next-lowest price by $2.

Google is offering a permanent 2GB expansion to Google Drive, for those who go through its quick Security Checkup. Users have until February 17 to perform the checkup, with the extra storage being added at the end of the month.

Image hosting site Imgur is getting rid of its Pro plan. Previously costing $24 per year, the service will now allow all registered users to store an unlimited number of images on their account, as well as access to analytics tools. Existing Pro users will receive refunds.

Are you a member of Bing Rewards? Members are able to claim 100GB of OneDrive cloud storage free for two years, without requiring any earning or spending of Bing Rewards points.

If you need an Apple Original Smart Cover for an iPad, Tanga is currently selling them for $10, instead of their usual $40, with free shipping.

MacUpdate is offering a heftily-discounted bundle on RapidWeaver 6 this week. The collection, including RapidWeaver, a Themes pack, a Stacks pack, and a collection of five plugins are being sold for $80, a savings of 89 percent from their usual $673 collective price.

Owners of the Xbox One games console who've yet to pick up Titanfall may want to do so now. Best Buy is currently listing the game at half its usual price, just $15.

If real-time strategy games are your thing, Amazon is currently listing the Starcraft II Battle Chest at $30, down from $40. For $10 more than the original Wings of Liberty release, the Heart of the Swarm expansion, and a Brady strategy guide to get you up to speed.

Earlier Deals

TigerDirect.com is still offering the Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB solid state drive at a pretty cheap price. It carries a list price of $251, but has been discounted by 56 percent to $110. That's $20 less than the lowest price found for that drive anywhere else.

Amazon has some good prices on Samsung 850 SSDs. In the 850 Pro line, which uses 3D V-NAND, the 512GB model is on sale for $290, $60 off its usual price. It offers 550MB/s read, and 520MB/s write.

The 850 EVO line is also discounted, with good prices for the 250GB ($108.24), 512GB ($200), and 1TB ($390) sizes. The EVO drives are ever-so-slightly slower (540MB/s read) and less durable than the enterprise-focused Pro models (both are SATA III, 2.5-inch form factor), but are great for consumer use.

Amazon also has the 512GB Crucial MX100 line, with similar speeds, available for even lower prices at the 128GB ($63) and 256GB ($105) sizes, and matching the Samsung EVO price at the 512GB level ($200).

A bundle combining Kingston HyperX Fury Red 4GB memory and McAfee 2015 Multi Access protection from TigerDirect is still listed at $80, but a rebate of $90 effectively makes the bundle free, while stocks last.

Best Buy are currently offering the Logitech Wireless Bluetooth Speaker Adapter at $18 off its usual $40 price. The $22 device can be used to stream audio from a smartphone to nearby speakers via the device over Bluetooth.

BestBuy.com has dropped the price on the PNY Lego 16GB USB 2.0 flash drive from $13 down to $7. That's about $6 less than the lowest price offered elsewhere.

The D-Link DHP-209AV Powerline AV 200 Mini Adapter Starter Kit is currently discounted from its usual $50 price. While the initial discount to $40 is decent for a Powerline networking kit, promo code EMCANAT74 running until the 12th takes the price down to $23.

Do you want to play NES game cartridges without risking damage to a NES console? The Retron 1 NES System on Amazon is discounted 32 percent, to under $17.

If you're about to renew (or start) the subscription to the Adobe CC Photographer's Bundle, which groups Photoshop and Lightroom along with a few other minor goodies for $10 per month (on an annual agreement), you might want to go through Amazon. Throughout February, you will get a free $25 Amazon promotional credit, but of course this is not credited until a few months into the deal. You can cancel without penalty within the first month if needed. While not everyone likes "rental" software, we think Photoshop CC and Lightroom for $120 per year is actually a good deal.
