Apple iPad 8th-Gen for $299 ($30 off): Apple's newest eighth-generation iPad is already on sale at Walmart. This one supports Apple's Smart Keyboard and Pencil (separate purchases), and the processor inside is plenty powerful for most tasks.
Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS, 38 mm) for $169 ($30 off): The Apple Watch Series 6 is here, but it's expensive. The Series 3 is a much better entry point into the world of smartwatches, and while it doesn't have newer features like an always-on display, electrocardiogram, or blood oxygen saturation measurements, it can do almost everything else, including sleep tracking.
Apple AirPods Pro for $199 ($50 off): Apple's AirPods Pro (8/10, WIRED Recommends) offer outstanding sound quality and excellent active noise canceling. They're comfortable and sweatproof, and they work flawlessly with your iPhone and iPad. The downside is the battery life—only 4.5 hours outside the case.
Jabra Elite 45e for $30 ($70 off): These Bluetooth wireless headphones are IP67 water-resistant and make good workout headphones, especially at this price.
Syma X20 Pocket Quadcopter for $10 ($21 off): Syma's X20 is our favorite toy drone. It's tiny, like fit-in-your-palm-with-room-to-spare tiny, but fun. It's also a good way to practice flying. Crashing a $10 drone is considerably less traumatizing than crashing your $1,000 one.
Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5, AMD Ryzen, 16-GB RAM, 256-GB SSD for $710 ($90 off): This Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 offers a lot of laptop for the price. It happens to be the laptop I'm typing on right now. I'm not done testing, but I can tell you it's tough to beat a 14-inch 1080p touchscreen, AMD Ryzen 5 2.30GHz processor, 16 GB RAM, and a 256-GB SSD at this price. The only thing I dislike is Windows 10 Home. You can upgrade to Pro for $99. Alternatively, with a little internet searching and a Windows 7/8 Pro or Ultimate license from an old machine, you may be able to upgrade for free.
TCL 10 Pro for $380 ($70 off): Clip the coupon to see the discount at checkout. This isn't our favorite cheap phone—that's the Google Pixel 4A—but the TCL 10 Pro offers similarly good performance, capable cameras, and a great screen for the price. The TCL 10L is also on sale for $210 ($40 off). Its biggest weak point is the camera.
Acer Nitro 5 17-Inch Gaming Laptop for $1,050 ($350 off): This Acer is big, but it packs a wallop. You get a 17-inch display, an Nvidia RTX 2060 graphics card, 16 GB of RAM, a 512-GB SSD, and an Intel Core i7 chip. It isn't hard to open up and upgrade the hard drive and RAM later, too.
Aukey 10,000-mAh Portable Charger with Stand for $31 ($10 off)): Use the promo code JTBTSAG6 at checkout to see the discount. This clever charger will power up your phone wherever you are and provide a handy stand for hands-free video chatting (or catching up on YouTube). It'll fully charge most phones about two times, and you can recharge it in three hours.
Teach Your Monster to Read: Phonics & Reading Game for free ($5 off): If you need a way to entertain the little one and want them to learn something in the process, this game is a great way to do it. My kids love it, and it has helped build their reading skills. Shh. Don't tell them.
Super Mario Maker 2 for $40 ($20 off): Nintendo recently celebrated the 35th anniversary of Super Mario Bros., so set aside some time to navigate through the endless fan-created worlds of Mario Maker 2. It's crazy fun.
Mario Tennis Aces on Nintendo Switch for $40 ($20 off): This is a fun multiplayer game that can double as a home workout.
