If you're trying to eek a little extra life out of your TV set, one of the best (and most affordable) things you can do is add a streaming media player. Rather than shelling out for a whole new smart TV, you simply plug the device into one of your existing TV's HDMI ports and you'll get a whole bunch of smart functionality for a fraction of the cost. Streaming sticks and boxes are pretty inexpensive even when at full price, but deals like this one at Best Buy offering two Google Chromecast media players for just $50 make it super easy to hook up various televisions in your home. One Google Chromecast would regularly cost you $35 alone and you're getting each for just $25 with this deal, saving you $20 total. Shipping is free.
