At the end of the month, we saw a bunch of solid tech deals on the web. Amazon’s latest Echo Dot dropped to just $ 30 and you can still save up to $ 200 on Samsung’s Galaxy S21 smartphones. Fitbit’s Mother’s Day sale is in full swing, bringing record prices for many of its wearable devices, and May 4 sales began early this year with discounted Star Wars Instant Jars. Here are the best tech deals we found this week that you can still get today.
Amazon Echo Dot
The last Echo point and Echo Dot with clock remain on sale for $ 30 and $ 40, respectively, which is very close to their all-time lows. Now is a good time to upgrade any smart speakers you might have in your home with new ones, or add them to your existing setup while saving money. We gave the Echo Dot a score of 88 for its attractive and rounded design, good audio quality and convenient 3.5mm audio output jack.
Samsung Galaxy S21 5G
All of Samsung’s latest flagship smartphones are on sale, with some offering up to $ 200 off. the Galaxy S21 5G is down to $ 699, the S21 + is on sale for $ 799 and the S21 Ultra fell to $ 999. It is a good opportunity for those who want to upgrade. We consider the Galaxy s21 to be the best value Android phone right now, while the Galaxy S21 Ultra is more for power users who will spare no expense for the best.
Star Wars Instant Jars
The May 4th deals started early this year, so now’s a good time to grab a Star Wars-themed Instant Pot if you have one. Several 6 quart versions, including the R2D2 and The child models, are on sale for $ 60, which is $ 40 off their regular price.
Our favorite pair of wireless earphones, the Sony WH-1000XM4, returned to an all-time low of $ 278. You can even take a package with the cans, a protective case and a portable battery for only $ 300. If you are looking to spend a little less, Sony Extra Bass WH-XB900N the headphones are also on sale as a set for $ 178.
If the headphones are faster, Sony WF-1000XM3 wireless headphones are down to $ 178. We gave them a rating of 89 for their excellent sound quality and ANC, handy companion app, and excellent battery life.
Roku Streambar is down to $ 100 at HSN, which is close to a historically low price. We gave the Streambar a score of 86 for its compact design, good audio quality, built-in Roku Ultra streaming technology and its ability to act as a Bluetooth speaker.
Fitbit Mother’s Day Promo
Fitbit may have announced its new Luxe tracker the other week, but a number of its other devices remain on sale before Mother’s Day. the Fitbit sense fell to an all-time low of $ 250 as the Versa 3 is on sale for $ 180 and the Inspire 2 is down to $ 70. The first two options are better for those who like the smartwatch look while the Inspire bracelet is best if you want a more minimalist device for tracking daily activity and sleep.
