It wouldn’t be a Prime Day event without the lowest prices on Fire Sticks, and the best ones are so affordable today that we’d only recommend getting the 4K option these days. Prime Video, Apple TV+ and Disney+ don’t charge extra for 4K content. HBO Max and Netflix aren’t as generous yet.
These affordable streaming sticks are a great addition, even if your TV has smart apps, is a bit old, and misses some of the modern ones. I love the remote on the Fire Sticks, the buttons are super responsive and much better than the mushy buttons on most TV remotes.
As for the Max or non-Max versions. The Mac is marginally faster, with more RAM and Wi-Fi 6 support and support for picture-in-picture technology in live content. For most users, I’d say save the extra ten bucks and get the cheaper one.
There’s not a huge Prime Day discount, but we’re surprised to see the new AirPods Pro for almost no money right after their release. The noise-canceling technology is much improved this time around and the new H2 chip helps extend battery life on a single charge. As always with AirPods, they are best paired with an iPhone to take advantage of all the features they have to offer.
Head over to Best Buy and save $30 instantly on a pair of the Sony WF-1000XM4 Wireless earbuds. That may not seem like a huge price drop, but remember that the XM4 ruled some of the best wireless earbuds when they first hit store shelves in the summer of 2021. A year later, they are even better. 8 hours of battery life, great sound quality and really great active noise cancellation. Combine those features with four months of free access to Apple Music streaming, and $30 off isn’t so bad, right?

If you’re in the market for a new tablet, you don’t have to wait until the Prime Early Access Sale to save some serious money at Amazon. Currently, the 32GB and 64GB versions of the Fire HD 10 tablet have been discontinued halfway through the retailer. For less than $100, you get a tablet with a beautiful 1080p 10.1-inch display, 12 hours of battery life, and an octa-core processor that delivers amazingly fast performance.
While we wait for Amazon’s sale to finally go live, Walmart is already here with some of the best deals we’ve seen in months. Competitive sales across Walmart’s site Running through October 13th, they’re slashing prices on a host of great tech like this stunning 75-inch Smart TV with advanced full-line LED technology, intelligent graphics and audio processing, and intelligent 4K upscaling.

You can get one of these consoles from Amazon right now for $297.66, $42 off its regular retail price. Will the price drop further when the official sale goes live? Only time will tell, but in the meantime, we’re pretty happy with this budget-friendly deal.

The Pixel 6a was already very, very affordable at $449, but this Amazon deal sees it drop $100 to the lowest price we’ve ever seen. Even though the new Pixel 7 has the free gift cards mentioned on this page, it’s still an expensive phone. So, if you’re still on a budget, with a few more years of software and security updates, the 6a is a great call.
Save $200 on the Z Flip 4
Sorry, Amazon hasn’t reduced your sale price yet, because it’s $53 more than this tempting offer from Best Buy on one of our favorite phones of the year. The Flip 4 is now $200 off and the best price we’ve seen with no trade-ins required. The Flip 4 makes some neat improvements over last year’s model, with a longer-lasting battery, thinner hinge and better pictures. Bora purple is all kinds of beautiful. If you want to see trade or network offers, visit us Galaxy Z Flip 4 offers Runup.
Our deals guru, Patrick, rounds up the best Pixel 7 pre-orders As the phone was showcased at a recent Google event. Truth be told, most of the best devices require trading in an old device to get the best prices. If you’re looking to buy outright (and don’t want to tie your soul to expensive networks), this is a great opportunity to get a cracking deal on an unlocked device. Instead of cashing in on the phones, Amazon is offering a $100 or $200 Amazon Gift Card on the Pixel 7 Pro, which should make spending a lot easier over the next few months, especially with Black Friday coming up next month. This is the best deal we’ve seen throughout this Amazon sale on new phones, but we expect to see older Pixels and deals on Samsung phones tomorrow as well.
Simply put, the Echo Show is a smart speaker with all kinds of extra apps. Another favorite of ours is video calling between other Echo Show devices, with basics like a clock, timers, photo views, weather reports, or even syncing to a smart doorbell’s camera. This model with a 5-inch display is a great value at $50 off and the perfect size for a bedside table. There’s a larger 8-inch model, which might be a bit big for a bed, but would be fine on other surfaces around the house. It’s usually $129, which is a bit high compared to the 5-inch, but today you can get it for just a fraction of the price. $70 on Amazon.
If you’re new to the world of smart speakers, this is a great deal. Or maybe one of the other rooms in your house needs an extra Alexa speaker? This is the last version of the Echo Dot in the Buck design, the newer models have a spherical shape which in all honesty produces better sound. If you don’t mind spending $25 instead, you can get one of those 4th gen models all over Amazon. The echo comes out.
The Kindle Paperwhite is $40 cheaper today, bringing it down to the same price as the entry-level Kindle. It’s a steal as you get a very modern design with a waterproof bezel screen design.
