Google's mid-range earbuds are a lot more affordable than its upcoming premium offering
Prime Day has officially come and gone, but there are still some great deals available. The Pixel Buds A-Series, Google's mid-range wireless earbuds, are one of our favorite pairs, and you can still snap a pair up for 80 bucks — $20 under their already reasonable $100 MSRP and a full $120 less expensive than the upcoming Pixel Buds Pro.
The other Black Friday is officially over, but there are still some great deals
Amazon Prime Day, the two-day shopping bonanza that puts hundreds of thousands of products on sale, is over for this year. We brought you the best products and discounts in the tidal wave of tech deals, but the sale officially finished at midnight PT on Wednesday, July 13. However, there are still some products on sale that you may want to pick up.
The Sony SRS-XB13 is more than just adorable, it gets all the essentials right
While many amazing Prime Day deals have crossed my desk the last two days, I have a frugal streak that keeps me from spending my own money on new "toys," especially when I already have an apartment overflowing with cases and Chromebooks. In fact, I think I have approximately ten Bluetooth speakers in my apartment already, and yet, I simply couldn't deny the practicality and precociousness of the Sony SRS-XB13 Extra BASS Compact Bluetooth Speaker.
Buy it for yourself — and your sanity
It's hard out there for many people right now, which makes a life-improving deal even easier to recommend. The newest Kindle Paperwhite is one of my favorite gadgets of the past year, and not necessarily for the reasons you'd think. Yes, it's a very good e-reader, and finally ships with USB-C along with an improved e-ink display, water resistance, and optional wireless charging on the Signature Edition.
From the affordable Lenovo Flex 3 to the perfect-for-the-weekend Lenovo Duet 5, there's a Chromebook deal for everyone
Back-to-school season is just around the corner, and whether you need a new Chromebook as you head off to college or for your first-grader to use for homework, there's a Chromebook deal for you on Amazon Prime Day. For adults, college students, and high-schoolers, the Chromebook to buy — which could last you to the end of the decade if you take good care of it — is the Lenovo Flex 5i Chromebook.
60% off on a good Chromebook doesn't happen every day
Among the tidal wave of Prime Day's Chromebook deals, the sweetest deals have weirdly not been on Amazon. Best Buy's "Black Friday in July" has given us some stellar sales in the lead-up to today's shopping free-for-all, and this might be the best one yet.
The stream may be over, but the deals are still alive!
There have been deals on Samsung phones just about everywhere these last two days, not just at Amazon, and as Amazon starts selling out of some sizes and colors, Samsung's own website seems to be picking up the slack — and for the next few hours, you can take an extra $100 off the Galaxy S22 series and current Z series simply by clicking on a live stream of nothing.
Have some smart home fun on the cheap
Prime Day 2022 is rapidly drawing to a close, but you've still got a few hours to score some quality deals. If you're after the thrill of a bargain but don't want to spend much, you're in luck: TP-Link's already affordable line of Kasa smart home accessories are even cheaper than usual today. Right now, you can get four smart plugs for just $23, which shakes out to less than $6 apiece.
There are several great deals to check out on fitness watches for every kind of athlete
Prime Day is still going, and deals are still raining down the sky. If you're not done with yesterday's spending spree, you can still get yourself amazing discounts on some of your favorite tech. If you bought a smartphone yesterday and want to pair it with a brand-new smartwatch, there are also a lot of offers to check. Some people swear by Garmin's offerings, which are amazing for fitness tracking purposes, but if the price they command has put you off in the past, you might find them a tad more approachable today.
Upgrade your wireless now and don't worry about it for several years
Many of the gadgets we buy are meant to be replaced fairly often, but when it comes to your Wi-Fi, it’s usually worth investing in good equipment that won’t cause problems or require a fresh setup every couple of years. Thanks to Prime Day, there’s an opportunity to pick up the Eero Pro 6, one of the best mesh Wi-Fi routers on the market, for its lowest price ever. Through the rest of today, you can buy a 2-pack for just $259.
From cases to power banks and everything in between, there's a sweet deal to grab here
Prime Day is not over yet, and while many deals are starting to sell out, there are still gems aplenty if you know where to look. Everything is on sale, from phone cases and Popsockets to mounts and microSD cards, but only these deals are worth your time, attention, and hard-earned money.
The Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro are earbuds with a long name and few downsides
There are seemingly a million different manufacturers of wireless earbuds at this point; just about every brand offers a set or two, and Anker is one of those brands with its Soundcore line. Thankfully, Anker is one of the better manufacturers out there, where its earbuds are favorably reviewed. So the current Prime Day sale on its Liberty Air 2 Pro earbuds is definitely worth a look if you're in the market for an affordable pair of in-ear headphones that offer active noise-canceling, personalized EQ, and wireless charging.
One of the best smart displays gets even better during Prime Day
I've been a fan of smart home tech for a while now. In the mid-2010s, my small apartment was already equipped with a first-generation Google Home and a half dozen smart lights, donning the colorful arrays found in so many mid-20-year-olds' homes. Since then, my collection has evolved substantially, adding Echo Dots, Ring cameras, Google Home Minis, Google TV, and smart light strips. However, the collection felt a bit more complete, when I was fortunate enough to add and review the Echo Show 10, which is currently only $180 thanks to Amazon Prime Day.
Grab the OnePlus 9 for $230 off and 9 Pro for $369 off this Prime Day
In the US, OnePlus smartphones are not in the same league of the best Android phones as Google's Pixel lineup or Samsung's Galaxy S series. But they offer excellent value for money, and if you are on a tight budget, OnePlus offerings can be hard to ignore. For Prime Day, Amazon is discounting the OnePlus 9 series to their lowest-ever price, making them an irresistible deal to miss. Thanks to the discount, you can get last year's OnePlus 9 for $500—down from $730.
The August Smart Lock works with your existing deadbolt, and it's down to $150
Smart locks can be some of the most useful smart home gadgets, but they're also annoying to install. If you have a non-standard door, it can be impossible to replace your existing lock with a smart one, but that's why the August Smart Lock is our editor's choice pick. This device fits over top of your existing deadbolt, giving you all the same functionality as an all-in-one solution. It's usually just as expensive as other smart locks, but the price has been slashed for Prime Day to just $149.99, an $80 discount.
From budget phones to foldables, these are the best prices you'll find
Amazon Prime Day is in full swing, and there have been plenty of deals to choose from. Smartphones have been right in the middle of the action, with discounts on everything from foldables and flagships to budget and mid-range phones. Now is an excellent time to upgrade to a new phone, and we've collated the best deals to help you pick one.
Maxing out your NAS capacity has never been this cheap
The most expensive part of any NAS (network-attached storage) is the storage part of it. If you need to expand your existing storage or fill up a brand new NAS, this Prime Day has the deals you need. Whether you already own the best Synology NAS or you're about to build your own NAS, it needs drives in it to be of any use. At an absolutely ludicrous 12TB each, these Western Digital NAS drives have more storage than most people could dream of, but for data hoarders like myself, this discount means it's time to buy in bulk.
Track your weight, body composition and activity at an all-new low price
The Withings Body+ has been out for a while now, but it remains one of the best smart scale options out there. The most common criticism of them in the past has been their relatively high asking price, but take advantage of this Amazon Prime Day deal, and you’ll be able to pick one up for practically nothing. Considering what you get with these scales, it's pretty much a steal.
Juice up your phone and your smartwatch at the same time
Cables are boring. Most flagship phones these days have wireless charging capabilities, but you won't get a wireless charger in the box. In fact, as of more recently, you're not even getting a wall adapter in the box in the first place; instead, you're getting only a cable. As such, you also need to get a wall adapter — and if you also want to add a wireless charger to your purchase, the price can start adding up. Luckily, for today, it doesn't need to be an outrageous amount. For Prime Day, Samsung's awesome Duo wireless charger is 33% off, making it a must-buy for your new Android phone.
The very best cheap tech deals you’ll find this week
Black Friday and Amazon Prime Day are often the perfect opportunities to find discounts on the absolute top-tier tech with price drops of $200 or more on TV, laptops, or smartphones that would have initially cost you over $1,000. That’s still the case during Prime Day 2022, but there are also a lot of far more affordable deals out there worth considering.
