TODAY’S BEST TECH DEALS

Apple AirPods Pro (Refurbished) | $155 | Woot

If you’re an iPhone user with some cash to blow, skip the pretenders and even the lesser AirPods to go for something better. The AirPods Pro step the game up with rubber tips, active noise cancellation, better overall audio quality, and a wirelessly-chargeable case as standard.

They’re a bit expensive normally, but right now, Woot is offering refurbished pairs for just $155, a $94 savings off the new list price. Woot also offers free shipping for Amazon Prime members.


Microsoft Surface Laptop Go (256GB) | $700 | Amazon

The Surface Laptop Go is a smaller, lighter alternative to Microsoft’s standard Surface Laptop 4, and while it’s a little bit less powerful and doesn’t have that luxurious Alcantara suede-like finish on the keyboard, you might appreciate the savings even more. Right now, Amazon is offering $200 off a configuration in Sandstone with a 10th-gen Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM, and a 256GB SSD, which lands at $700 after the savings.


Insignia 43” 4K Fire TV Edition | $220 | Amazon (Prime Only)
Insignia 43” 4K Fire TV Edition | $220 | Amazon (Prime Only)

If you have an active Amazon Prime subscription, you can choose from a selection of heavily discounted TVs right now, including a couple of 4K sets. This Insignia 43” 4K Smart TV is the more affordable pick, delivering crisp Ultra HD resolution and smart streaming features powered by Amazon’s own Fire TV platform. It’s $100 off the list price and has a strong 4.6-star rating from customers.

Want to go larger while still getting a deal? Toshiba’s 50” 4K Smart TV, also featuring the Fire TV streaming platform, is $310 right now—a nice $120 off the list price. It has the same stellar 4.6-star rating, but for both of these bargains, you must be a Prime member.


PhoneSoap 3 UV Smartphone Sanitizer | $56 | Amazon | Clip Coupon
PhoneSoap 3 UV Smartphone Sanitizer | $56 | Amazon | Clip Coupon

I couldn’t love my PhoneSoap Smartphone Sanitizer more. I put my keys, glasses, jewelry, and of course, my phone in it daily. I try to drop my stuff in immediately when I get home to ensure I get the fullest out of it. I’ve tested a few sanitizers, and PhoneSoap stands above the others. Clip the coupon and take 30% off; you’ll see the discount in your cart.

This design has two scientifically proven germicidal UV-C bulbs that completely sanitize your gear. I like the PhoneSoap more than others because there isn’t this burnt smell that often happens upon completion. My stuff used to smell like it was zap fried but not with PhoneSoap. However, I still think the charging ports just takes too long on all of these, ideal if you aren’t in a rush, though. This model was made to accommodate all smartphones, even my iPhone 11. If it fits inside, I say sanitizer it. Using this unit regularly will help cut germs and bacteria and keep us all a little safer and healthier.

Prime members enjoy free shipping on this item.


JBL Tune 225 TWS Earbuds | $70 | Crutchfield

Finding the perfect set of earbuds can be a daunting task if you don’t know where to start. They need to be comfy, hold a charge for a substantial amount of time, and sound phenomenal. JBL is one of the top audio brands, and their Tune 225 TWS earbuds might be just what you’re searching for. Save 30% on them right now.

This is an exclusive deal to Crutchfield, so not only do you get a great pair of wireless earbuds, you get the deluxe hardshell travel case too. Pair easily with your chosen streaming device with Bluetooth and enjoy lots of great tunes and crisp, clear calls.

With solid bass and Bluetooth 5.0 tech, it’s easy to see why these are one of the company’s most popular items. They come in black, white, and blue.

There’s also free two-day shipping on this item.

Whether you’re a Twitch streamer or you just want to elevate the look of your Zoom calls, consider what camera you’re using. Sure, dedicated webcams are a step up above the tiny integrated lens on your laptop, but there really is no replacement for a professional grade DSLR. If you happen to have one that just sits in its case most of the time, you can start using it as your webcam to achieve amazing picture. In the world of working remote, maximizing your production quality is the new “dress to impress.” You can connect your DSLR as a webcam with a cam link like this one from Elgato on sale for $96.


HP Chromebook 14” (HD) | $199 | Amazon
HP Chromebook 14” (HD) | $199 | Amazon

Google’s Chromebooks are delightfully simple and affordable laptops that can handle a wide variety of everyday needs, from web browsing and streaming media to word processing, running millions of Android apps, and quite a bit more. Right now, Amazon is offering $91 off a 14” HP Chromebook model.

It’s just $199 right now after savings, and while the 720p 14" display isn’t going to win any awards for crispness, it should do just fine for basic, everyday needs. This Chropmebook packs modest specs including an Intel Celeron processor, 4GB RAM, and 32GB of internal storage. It’s no powerhouse, but Chromebooks don’t need a lot of processing grunt to handle their mostly web-driven tasks.

Note that this Chromebook 14a model is set to receive automatic updates through June 2026, so there’s plenty of runway to use this laptop for years to come.


Apple iPad Air 4th Gen (64GB) | $549 | Amazon

You can snag the newest iPad Air (4th Generation) at Amazon right now and save up to $50 off the 64GB edition, which now starts at $549 each. Looking for even more storage? You can get bigger savings on the 256GB edition, which is up to $54 off depending on color selection, starting at $695.

If you’re looking for something more robust than the base iPad model, the iPad Air is arguably the best value of the premium bunch. It shares a lot in common with the bigger, perk-packed, and much more expensive iPad Pro. The Air doesn’t have the 120Hz display, Face ID smarts, or LiDAR camera, but it has the powerful Apple A14 Bionic chipset and Apple Pencil support, making this a sweet option for casual artists and multimedia buffs. And it comes in those fun colors, too.

We’ve all been there: Your controller is constantly reminding you to change the batteries, your remote stops working, or your kid needs juice for some toy. Why not think ahead now and resolve that issue by investing in some bulk batteries?

Big packs of standard, disposable batteries are handy just in case you need ‘em in a pinch. You don’t want to find out in the middle of a power outage that your flashlight is out of batteries, right? Grab a 48-pack of Nanfu AA Batteries for just $14 when you use promo code B75H9QHF at Amazon.

You can also get a 48-pack of AAA batteries, also Nanfu alkaline type, for just $12 when you enter the same code at checkout. The same code will also snag you a 20-pack of AAA batteries for $8. You’ll get additional savings if you set up a Subscribe & Save order to receive regular shipments, although the prices shown here are for one-time orders.


Apple iMac 21.5” (2020) | $949 | Amazon
Apple iMac 21.5” (2020) | $949 | Amazon
Image: Andrew Hayward

Apple’s brand new iMac is a beauty, packing a shockingly slim (and colorful!) frame, the powerful new M1 chip, and a 4.5K-resolution 24” screen. Starting at $1,299, however—albeit still $40 off at Amazon, FYI—it could be too rich for some Apple fans’ blood right now.

Here’s another option: Amazon is offering $150 off the price of last year’s Intel-powered 21.5” iMac, which is selling for just $949 right now. It’s still impressively slim, albeit without the added color pop of the new redesign, and the 1080p screen isn’t quite as large or crisp. Still, this Intel Core i5-backed desktop is sure to be powerful enough for your everyday needs, and spending less than four figures for an all-in-one Mac is plenty appealing, indeed.


Apple MagSafe Charger | $34 | Amazon
Apple MagSafe Charger | $34 | Amazon
Image: Andrew Hayward

Apple’s Lightning cable did wonders for those of us who struggle to get our USB cables plugged in the right way, but it’s still a pain to get just right in the dark sometimes. The company’s newly reborn MagSafe Charger, however, magnetically slaps a charger (or a slew of other accessories) to the back of your iPhone 12 without hogging up your Lightning port.

At $39, it’s a hefty ask for charging functionality, but it’s a cool party trick, and it does add a bit of convenience to your nightly charging routine. If nearly $6 off will entice you, though, it’s down to $34 on Amazon right now. It’s still not the cheapest or best charger you can get, and you have better wired options... but if a cable-free lifestyle is in your sights, this might be worth a shot.


RAVPower 65W USB-C PD Wall Charger | $25 | Amazon | Clip coupon + use code KJKR6EL2
RAVPower 65W USB-C PD Wall Charger | $25 | Amazon | Clip coupon + use code KJKR6EL2
Image: Andrew Hayward

Charge your phone and your MacBook too. This 65W USB-C PD 3.0 block from RAVPower is half the size of Apple’s boxy MacBook Pro adapter and for a fraction of the price. At $25 with a coupon clip and promo code KJKR6EL2, you can’t beat this USB-C plug. The list price is $40.

Plus, the price difference is substantial: a 61W charger from Apple is $69. Save your $44 for the apocalypse, not an inferior power supply. And hook your phone up to a source that’s both portable and powerful, with this special limited time offer. It’ll also work with other phones, tablets, and laptops, not to mention the Nintendo Switch. And it has a bonus USB-A port alongside for charging a second device at the same time.


JLab Epic Air ANC Wireless Earbuds | $69 | Amazon
JLab Epic Air ANC Wireless Earbuds | $69 | Amazon
Image: Sheilah Villari

These are a little hearty and more durable than the other earbuds I usually review and recommend. If you’re looking for a good pair of actual noise-canceling earbuds that aren’t AirPod prices, JLab’s Epic Air ANC Wireless Earbuds are a nice alternative. These are currently 30% off.

I’ve spent a few weeks with them and can say that ANC is no joke. The “Be Aware” mode is absolutely wild and enhances all the sounds around you. The earbuds actually pass outside noises through them, almost like an advanced hearing aid. They connect to your phone quickly and independently but pair up effortlessly. Calls and zooms with these have been great, and I’m heard clearly. The sound both ways is super crisp. The range is amazing as well. I can leave my phone upstairs and still hear perfectly downstairs. I can say they do seem to last a long time between charges. It seems I only have to power up the case once a week, and I use these for a few hours each day. So forty-eight hours of playtime does appear to be pretty on point. I really like the sensor that stops play when they come out of your ears and knows to turn your music back on once they are back in.

The only issue I have, and this could be a user error in that I am not using the JLab app to control them. They don’t automatically disconnect when I put them back in the charging case. I also haven’t found the best way to charge the case yet. A charging pad takes too long. As for the integrated charging cable, I’m never really certain it’s getting juiced up.

While you’re home waiting for your turn to get a jab, it might be fun for your brain to learn something new. For a short time, you can grab a Premium Learn to Code 2021 Certification Bundle for only $20!! And what do you gain with this bundle, you ask? Well, a bunch of stuff including JavaScript, SwiftUI Apps, a complete C# programming course, Python, Raspberry Pi, HTML, CSS, and 20 other complete courses you’d need to be a professional coder.

I personally don’t know much about coding besides the skills needed to make the most popping MySpace profile of 2008, however, coding is a great skill to have in your pocket, especially in the current (and sucky) job market. Plus, just one of these courses would be about $100 by itself and you’re getting 27 courses with 2,700 lessons for $20, which is like 115% off (well actually it’s 99.5% off, but join me in the drama), so quite honestly you’re getting a huge deal. Invest in your future or something and grab it while it’s hot!

Back at the launch of Destiny 2: Beyond Light, I made my not-so triumphant return to the Crucible, the game’s PVP mode. As it turned out, everyone had gotten better at the game, and I’d gotten much worse. If you want to raise your K/D ratio fast, here’s a tip: all you have to do is log into a match that I’m in and wait for me to shoot hand cannon shots 20 feet above your head, giving you ample time to one-shot me with just about any weapon, it seems.

If you’re a PlayStation owner and you want in on this easy target practice, you’ll need to make sure you have PlayStation Plus, which allows you to play games like Destiny 2 online. You can get a full year of Sony’s online service for $38 at Eneba with the code PSSTATESJUNE. Make sure to wave emote in my direction before you embarrass me into orbit.

We’ve only seen a cinematic trailer so far, but wow is this trailer firing off on all cylinders. Battlefield 2042 looks to be massive, packed with vehicles, and breaking new ground for the series with cataclysmic weather effects. It’s also pretty freaking cool to see DICE leaning into the awesome stunts players have been performing in the current game like transferring from a quad to a helicopter in midair as well as launching yourself out of a jet to fire off an RPG only to safely re-enter said jet before it falls out of the sky. We also know Battlefield 2042 will allow for up to 128 players in a match. Gameplay will be revealed on June 13th, though most of us are already probably sold on getting this game. If you’d like to get ahead of things, Amazon has opened pre-orders for PC, current gen, and last gen versions of the game.

Battlefield 2042 is set to release October 22nd, 2021.

Let’s be real. Cyberpunk 2077 released as a pile of hot doo doo. Many fans were really looking forward to this game and weren’t able to get their cyberpunk fill between all the buggy animations, missions flat out breaking, and problematic depictions of marginalized groups. Ghostrunner might be able to fill that void at least aesthetically. The game is getting a visual upgrade in the form of its PS5 and Xbox Series X release. The game is a first-person platformer with a strong emphasis on mobility which will have you wallrunning and ziplining between slice and dicing enemies in a visually stunning cyberpunk world.

Barbie’s Malibu mansion doesn’t have squat against Bowser’s Castle. Barbie may think she’s so cool with her convertible top sportscar and her purple slide. Well do you know what’s cooler than a slide going from the bedroom to a pool? How about a button that drops the floor out from under you so you plummet to your death in a pool of lava? Bowser’s Castle Playset also comes with its own elevator and a cage with a cute bow on top. That’s the kind of style that Barbie can only dream of.

It’s UNO baby! But now it’s got pictures of blocky pigs and chickens and snow golems on it and stuff. Evoke fear in your friends’ and family’s hearts when you play the unique Creeper wildcard which forces them to add 3 cards to their hand. Diabolical. Amazon has the Minecraft UNO deck for only 5 bucks so go ahead, light some torches on the walls, and play one of the most popular party games out there in Minecraft form.


Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (25 Weeks) | $40 | Eneba

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is one of the hottest deals going in gaming. Even without meaty discounts like 25 weeks for $40 at Eneba, you’ll enjoy all the benefits of Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass for one low price. That means you’ll get online play, free games, exclusive discounts, in-game perks, and more, and that goes whether you’re on Xbox One, PC, or the Xbox Series X if you’re lucky enough to have found one.


Dishonored 2 (Xbox) | $8 | Amazon

Dishonored 2 wasn’t without its flaws, but if you enjoy first person stealth games, it’s absolutely worth picking up for $7, an all-time low.


Animal Crossing Switch Case | $12 | Amazon
Animal Crossing Switch Case | $12 | Amazon

There are no shortage of ways to show your love for Animal Crossing, which has become a real merch mover since Animal Crossing: New Horizons dropped last year. Plushies, pins, socks, you name it! If you could stick a leaf on it, it wasn’t safe from Isabelle and company. Here’s another cute example of that today this very precious Nintendo Switch carrying case, on sale for $12. It features New Horizons’ now iconic leaf graphic and a cool mint and white color scheme. Beyond aesthetics, this slim case includes a few slots to carry game cards and a mesh pouch to throw your charger or earbuds in. It’s an all-in-one portable solution for your Switch. Pick it up if you want to broadcast your love of Animal Crossing to the whole world, more than you already do now.


This thing looks beautiful. Each Victrix Limited Edition Pro Fs Arcade Fight Stick is engraved with its serialization number out of the 250 units produced. Depending on the character version you chose, it is also signed by the Capcom artist responsible—Bengus or Kinu Nishimura. Beyond just the expected stick and eight buttons, the controller also features a touch pad, programmable buttons, fully customizable audio, and lighting to truly make for the best fighting game experience possible. The entire PS4/PS5 controller is encased in a single-piece aircraft-grade aluminum extrusion for crying out loud. $400 is pretty steep, even for a collector, but this is a very slick piece of hardware any Street Fighter fan would be proud to own.

What’s up Digi-folk? The new Volume 2 of the Digimon Card Game Tamer’s Set is available for pre-order which includes a playmat and 60 sleeves for your cards. The set features artwork of Omnimon, the combined form of WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon. As someone who grew up loving the anime and likely burnt a hole through his VHS copy of Digmon: The Movie, seeing Omnimon again just sent me on quite the nostalgia trip. I could not possibly tell you if the American English release of that movie holds up, but do you know what does hold up? The soundtrack. All Star by Smashmouth, One Week by the Barenaked Ladies, The Impression That I Get by The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, All My Best Friends Are Metalheads by Less Than Jake, freaking The Rockafeller Skank by Fatboy Slim??!?! Simply banger after BANGER. Do yourself a favor by pre-ordering this Digimon Card Game set and blast this soundtrack while you battle on it.


Gundam HG 1/144 WINDAM (Neo Lorrnoke Custom) | $17 | Premium Bandai
Gundam HG 1/144 WINDAM (Neo Lorrnoke Custom) | $17 | Premium Bandai
Image: Joe Tilleli

So I have to confess. I know very very little about Gundam. Next to nothing. In fact, when I was little I had actually conflated Gundam and Transformers. They looked similar to me so I thought they were the same thing. Now that I’m an adult, I am able to see clearly just how different they are. One is about giant robots fighting and the other is about giant robots fighting, but with tiny people inside of them. Though if you know more about Gundam than I do which you certainly do, you might be interested in preordering this new Gundam HG 1/144 WINDAM (Neo Lorrnoke Custom) figure. I’m not sure what those letters and numbers mean. Is Neo Lorrnoke the name of the pilot? I think so, but I don’t know! Please yell at me in the comments if I’m wrong.

Minecraft is over 10 years old, yet I only got around to playing it for the first time a few months ago. I didn’t get the appeal really until I hopped in with some friends. We all sort of split up, worked on our own projects, and then showed each other what we’d been working on. It was reminiscent of having a friend come over as a kid and showing them your toys. If you haven’t experienced this behemoth of the last decade, I implore to to at least check it out. The Java Edition is available right now for $19 at Eneba with the code MINECRAFTJUNE.

So what is the Java Edition? Basically it is the original version of the game. Since its release and purchase by Microsoft, a new version dubbed the Bedrock version has been released across PC, consoles, and mobile devices. While the Java version is only on PC and does not offer crossplay to the other version, it surpasses the Bedrock version when it comes to modding as well as the inclusion of a hardcore and spectator modes.

Sometimes, it’s okay to treat yourself. We’re always made to think that you buy gifts for other people, not yourself, but I’m here to squash that myth. It’s been a really hard year! It’s okay to buy yourself a little something whenever you feel like it and call it a gift. In that spirit, you can currently get a $50 PlayStation Store gift card for $44 at Eneba when you use the code ENDINGPSNSALE at checkout. While that won’t buy you a brand new full retail AAA game, $50 can go a very long way. Stock up on indies or use it to clear out the digital storefront during its next sale. The choice is yours. As long as you are buying video games, I am happy.

Okay, calling this just a steamer basket is a little misleading. This versatile kitchen gadget from InstaExtras is actually three different tools to make cooking and serving easier. It can be a drainer, steamer, and platter. All that for just $10 seems like such a deal.

This is a true multiuse kitchen item, and the fact that it is so affordable is mindblowing. Steam vegetables, strain pasta or use it as a colander. It’s sturdy enough to be used on the stovetop, in a crockpot/instapot, in a traditional oven, and even with a Ninja Foodi. Because of the way it folds, it can be mini and then expands for a large-sized pot up to nine inches. The feet at the bottom make this the perfect companion for steaming, keeping your veggies out of the water for optimum deliciousness. It’s heat safe (obviously) and scratch-resistant being stainless steel and all. The handle is designed for safety and strength. Unfold it and use it as a sparkingly platter to display your culinary creations. Experiment with all your favorites food by the vapor steaming system; it can handle potatoes, seafood, eggs, and pretty much anything you have your heart set on. It’s easy to clean and can be tossed in the dishwasher. Fold it up when done; it will take up minimum space.
