That's a $30 instant rebate and $50 trade-in for any working pair of headphones
If you have an old pair of working headphones or earbuds lying around, wired or otherwise, Samsung is willing to give you $50 for them as a trade-in towards its popular Galaxy Buds 2 Pro. That's in addition to the $30 instant rebate it's already offering on the Buds, giving you a total discount of $80. That brings the Buds 2 Pro down to just $150 — an excellent price when you consider that they offer great sound, impressive ANC, and are one of the top picks in our best wireless earbuds roundup.
It supports USB-C, USB-A, and most major fast-charging standards
Baseus has made quite the name for itself in the affordable charging accessory space these past few years. It produces a wide range of products, at oft-discounted prices, that are revered by both experts and customers alike. One of our favorite Baseus accessories is this 100W PD GaN3 fast charger. It was one of our picks for the best chargers for the Samsung Galaxy S22+ and S22 Ultra, thanks to its power and versatility, and right now it's on sale for just $51 after a one-click coupon on the Amazon product page takes off $15 instantly.
The Echo Dot is the best value in smart speakers right now
The Amazon Echo Dot is the budget model in Amazon's line of Echo smart speakers, but it's still an extremely capable device. It can play music and podcasts on demand, control your smart home products, and invoke Alexa for queries, games, and much more. The Echo Dot (5th Gen) is the current Best Value pick in our roundup of the best smart speakers, and it gets even more affordable with today's $20 discount.
There's not many sub-$500 phones with a 120Hz display and 8GB of RAM
It seems like all the smartphone talk these days is centered around flagships and foldables, but you don't have to go super expensive to get an Android handset loaded with features. Perhaps there's no better testament to that than the OnePlus 10 Pro. It has a beautiful 6.7-inch 120Hz display, 8GB of RAM, and right now it's on sale for just $450.
$400 off is a great discount on one of our favorite Android phones
With Google preparing to launch the Pixel Fold, interest is once again growing in the foldable phone space. But for those of you who are tired of waiting on the first-gen product to hit shelves, Samsung's fourth generation foldable is $400 off right now. The Galaxy Z Fold 4 made our list of the best Android phones this year, thanks to its massive 7.6-inch display, powerful performance, and S Pen stylus support. Our biggest beef with the handset was its expensive price tag, but that gets largely remedied with today's discount.
It’s the perfect carry-on companion
It's time someone told you what none of your friends or family had the courage to tell you: you need a new phone charger. Maybe your main charger is ok, but the one you are using in the kitchen, the guest room, or tucked in your laptop bag, is past its prime and long overdue for an upgrade. The good news is, power adapters these days are extremely affordable. The 511 (Nano 3), for example, from Anker, is both small and powerful, it supports all the major fast-charging standards, and right now you can pick one up for just $18.
Get $50 off one of our favorite wireless earbuds
Ask anyone that follows the industry what the best wireless earbuds on the market are, and you'll probably get a response like the Sony XM4 or Bose QC II. While both of these models are excellent, and deserving of the high honor, there's another pair you should consider if you're looking for premium earbuds: the Sennheiser Momentum TW 3. They offer rich sound, great ANC, and strong battery life, and right now they're on sale for just $200.
It gives you plug-and-play access to countless games, apps, and voice commands
Do you love your current TV? You might be happy with the picture quality, and other aspects of the set, but what about the user experience? Is it easy to find all of your favorite TV shows and movies, and do you have access to voice commands and games? If you answered "no" to any of these questions, you're the perfect candidate for a streaming device like the Google Chromecast with Google TV. It gives you access to all of your favorite apps, music, and streaming content, has built-in Google Assistant, and you can grab the HD model for just $20.
The 2-in-1 device features both a 5,000mAh power bank and 20W charger
Open up your laptop bag, or wherever you keep the mobile accessories you tend to travel with and raise your hand if you see anything like this: a power bank small enough to fit in your pocket, that also doubles as a wall charger. Anyone? No? Let us show you one, then. The Anker 511 Power Bank is a 2-in-1 hybrid charging device that features a 5,000mAh battery pack, and a 20W charger. We named the 511 one of the best power banks for 2023, and right now it's 25% off.
Keep a watchful eye on your home's exterior for just $140
It seems like video doorbells get all the love in the smart home security space, but there's another group of products that deserve to be recognized: floodlight cameras. These are motion-activated, exterior lights, with built-in security cameras, that help expose and thwart potential intruders. This Ring Floodlight Cam, for example, features two bright LED floodlights, a 105dB security siren, and two-way audio, and right now, it's back to its lowest price ever.
It sounds great and the battery is good for up to 20 hours
A good portable Bluetooth speaker can really set the tone for a cookout, party, or any other form of get-together. A good speaker usually equals good music (depending on who is in charge of it), and good music equals good times. However, if the speaker doesn't get loud enough, sounds bad, or the battery runs out too quickly, it can ruin the entire vibe. That's why you want to be very careful when picking out your summer speaker and go with something like the JBL Charge 5. It sounds great, it's waterproof, and right now it's on sale for $140.
One of the best wireless earbuds just returned to its lowest price ever
There's an old saying that goes, "you get what you pay for." That holds true for a number of consumer goods, but that's not necessarily the case with the Anker Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro earbuds. These earbuds feature surprisingly-good sound quality, and are some of the best noise-canceling wireless earbuds you can buy. We think they offer a lot of value at their normal price of $170, but we dare you to find a better pair of earbuds at their sale price of just $85.
For once, the dynamic light show and wireless microphone ARE included
Summer is just around the corner and that means we're all planning barbecues, backyard parties, and other get-togethers. This year, you can be more prepared than ever with the PartyBox On-The-Go Bluetooth speaker from JBL. We aren't talking about an average, run-of-the-mill wireless speaker here. It's a two-foot wide, 100W party speaker featuring a dynamic light display, a padded shoulder strap with bottle opener, and a wireless microphone. It would normally cost you $350, but right now, it's on sale for just $230.
The 6-in-1 unit features 2 USB-C ports, 2 USB-A ports, and 2 outlet extenders
There was a time when phones, tablets, and laptops all used different cables and chargers, so if you wanted to travel with all of these devices, you needed to pack a ton of accessories. Blessedly, that's less and less the case anymore, thanks to the nearly ubiquitous USB-C connector, and high-powered charging solutions like this one from Baseus. The PowerCombo 100W is a 6-in-1 charging station that features 2 USB-C ports, 2 USB-A ports, and 2 AC outlets. It supports multiple fast-charging systems, including PPS, and right now it's $40 off.
The best wireless earbuds you can get are less than $200 right now
It's impressive that the Sony WF-1000XM4 are more than two years old, and yet they're still among the best wireless earbuds you can buy today. They offer great sound quality, top-of-the-class ANC, and all the features you'd want in a pair of premium headphones. They're perfect for listening to productivity music while you work, or drowning out the noise on a crowded plane or train, and with today's deal, they can be yours for less than $200.
$40 instant rebate + $50 trade-in = awesome new buds
Blanket your home with fast reliable Wi-Fi for as low as $130
Whether you're looking to dump the default router your ISP gave you or it's time to upgrade that old Linksys blue box, you might want to consider getting a mesh router. Instead of using a single router to cover your entire home, mesh systems utilize two or more Wi-Fi access points that combine to blanket larger areas with fast, reliable wireless Internet. There are a number of great mesh router options available, but today we're going to talk about Eero. These Amazon-backed mesh routers are easy to set up, extremely reliable, and right now you can get a 3-piece system for as low as $130.
You can also take $200 off the more expensive S23 Ultra
Samsung launched its Galaxy S23 line earlier this year, and it was everything you'd expect from a flagship smartphone series. The jumbo-sized S23 Ultra is the current premium pick in our roundup of the best Android phones of 2023, and both the smaller S23+ and S23 made the list, as well. Maybe the biggest caveat for these handsets is that they can get a little expensive, but today we have a deal that really helps with affordability. Both Best Buy and Amazon are currently offering up to $200 in instant discounts on the Galaxy S23 and S23 Ultra.
The package includes a second generation Nest Hub and 4 Wyze smart bulbs
It's extremely easy and affordable to make your home smarter these days — especially with discounted bundle kits like this one from Wyze. It includes a Google Nest Hub (2nd gen), which we named the Editor's Choice pick in our roundup of the best Google Assistant smart displays, and a 4-pack of Wyze Bulb Colors, all for just $80. That's cheaper than you'll find the Nest Hub alone just about anywhere, plus you get 4 colored smart bulbs to help automate your lighting.
