Newegg is also offering the same discount but throwing in a $50 Visa gift with each purchase.

- The 41mm, GPS-equipped Apple Watch Series 7 is $50 off ($349) at Amazon, as is the 45mm variant ($379). We were impressed by Apple’s latest watch, which offers a larger display than its predecessor, faster charging, and IP6X dust resistance. Read our review.

- Amazon is offering a number of discounts on gaming mice, too. You can currently get any color of the Logitech G305 wireless mouse for around $39, a cool $11 off the normal retail price. This isn’t the lowest price we’ve seen for these colorful peripherals, but it is a solid value for a piece that’s sure to become the highlight of your setup.
General tech deals
- Both size configurations of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 are selling at a new all-time low at Samsung, Amazon, and Woot. Right now, you can buy the 44mm, LTE-equipped version for $249.99 (Amazon, Samsung) instead of $329.99 or get $80 off the 40mm variant, which is on sale for $219.99 (Amazon, Samsung, Woot). The terrific Android wearable offers a speedy interface, improved third-party app support, and plenty of health tracking features. Read our review.
- While we personally think that buying a new phone without investing in a case should be borderline illegal, we’re not here to pass judgment. Thankfully, if you preordered the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S22, S22 Plus, or S22 Ultra, Otterbox is offering a 10 percent discount at checkout when you purchase a screen protector and a case for any phone in the S22 lineup.
- The Elgato Wave 3 is $119.99 ($30 off) at Amazon. The USB condenser mic has a desktop stand and is geared toward streamers and gamers alike, but it works just as well for Zoom.
- Samsung’s PCIe 4.0-ready 980 Pro SSD is fast enough for a serious PC or the PlayStation 5. The 1TB model is currently on sale at Amazon for $149.99 ($80 off) without a heatsink, or you can get it with the heatsink (which is required for the PS5) for $169.99 at Amazon.
- The Blue Yeti Nano condenser microphone is $79.99 at Best Buy, a $20 discount on its usual $99.99 price tag. This is a fine value if you want a desktop mic for streaming, podcasting, or making Zoom calls but the standard Blue Yeti is too overbearing given its size.
- The Ultimate Ears Boom 3 Bluetooth speaker is $20 off at Amazon, bringing its price down to $129.99. This speaker has been around for years, but it can bring life to any party with its big sound and magical button.
