I’ve had the pleasure of testing a few items from JLab over the last few weeks and was pleasantly surprised by the quality for not only the price but the size. If you’re unsure where to start with wireless and are worried about going too cheap, the JBuds Air True Wireless Earbuds are a great option. They’re 40% off and in that nice space of moderate price but reliable performance. Of the three colors that are offered the white is currently the best deal.

The sound is crisp, clear, and they block out a fair amount of background noise. They turn on automatically and connect immediately, which is something I’m still getting used to with this brand. And being able to control everything by tapping one of the earbuds takes some time to figure out. It’s a bit of a learning curve, but once you remember how many taps to what, the transitions are seamless. The charging case is true to the twenty-four-hour claims of playtime. Expect around six hours of tune time for the earbuds off of one charge. These are sweatproof and waterproof, so workout approved whether indoors or outside. They are comfy for hours of wear, and the case is compact enough to toss in your bag or pocket. The JBuds will be a great addition to your audio collection.

My beach towel from last year is included in this sale, and it held up just fine as my park/shore blanket. The Mickey Mouse and Friends Cupcakes Beach Towel is adorable, colorful, and can even be personalized with a name.

If you’re in search of a cute flirty new swimsuit, this tropical one is just that. While it has tiny Mickeys on it, there are some major Moana vibes. The ruffles at the top and straps are the perfect touch of daintiness. The bright green and pink color will certainly pop wherever you flaunt this.

There’s nothing that I love more than a good hodge-podge gaming sale. Who doesn’t love to just scroll through a big list of discounted games and fill their cart with things they’ve missed out on over the past few years? Best Buy is running a three day sale on video games starting today and it’s full of hits. Where to begin? How about Animal Crossing: New Horizons? That’s down to $50, which is a rare discount. Control Ultimate Edition is down to $30 and it includes a next-gen upgrade. I’d personally advocate for Star Wars Squadrons, which is $20 (especially great if you have PS VR). There’s way more in sale for each console, so as always, pop in and see what tickles your fancy.

Discounts on Apple’s new MacBook Air model with the powerful M1 chip have been steadier lately, although the savings more commonly come with the higher-capacity model. This time, however, you can save $99 on any version of the new MacBook Air from Amazon. That puts the base model with 256GB of storage at $900 in any color, while the 512GB edition lands at $1,150.

Our friends at Gizmodo said the M1 chip makes the MacBook Air “extraordinary,” thanks to fantastic battery life and better performance than some much pricier Windows-based rivals. If you’re on the hunt for a speedy, reliable new laptop, jump on this bargain!

If you have an Android phone, Samsung’s current Galaxy Watch 3 is one of your best options for a capable, sophisticated smartwatch. It looks like a traditional wristwatch, but pairs with your phone and employs a unique interface that lets you rotate the bezel to glide through menus and apps, as well as use familiar taps and swipes on the screen. It can pair to an iPhone too, but doesn’t feel quite as effortlessly integrated and robust in functionality as an Apple Watch.

Right now, Amazon is slashing $170 off the price of the standard Bluetooth-compatible model, putting the 41mm version at $230 and the larger 45mm edition at $260. If you want an LTE-compatible version that can work on its own without a paired smartwatch in range, those are $150 off: the 41mm LTE version is $300 right now, and the 45mm LTE version is $330.

If you spend a lot of time perusing social media, then there’s a good chance that you’ve come across Our Place’s Always Pan. It’s a beautifully-designed non-stick pan that you wouldn’t mind leaving on your stovetop, and thankfully, the function matches the form.

The Always Pan is billed as an 8-in-1 replacement for your cavalcade of lesser, worn-out pans, as it can be a saute pan, skillet, steamer, saucepan, and more, and you can boil, braise, strain, and quite a bit more with this versatile kitchen tool. We’ve seen rave reviews from critics and everyday customers alike, who praise the Always Pan for its even cooking and clever design elements.

Gizmodo staff writer Victoria Song shared her take on bringing this wonder pan into a tiny Manhattan studio apartment:

“This thing is super easy to clean, cute on the stovetop, and finally, I have a goddamn place to rest my spatula. Also, I am super excited to trash, like, five pans that are roughly the same size that I have absolutely destroyed. Do you know how much cabinet space we’re going to reclaim?? Do you????

Right now, you can save $30 on the Always Pan direct from the manufacturer when you use promo code GOODTASTE30 at checkout, and it’ll work on any of the color options currently available in stock.
