Here’s a confession: Sometimes good deals are hard to find. I don’t like the idea of writing about a pair of headphones that are $2 off any more than you like the idea of shopping for them (which is why we don’t share bad discounts). Luckily, the Deal gods have smiled upon us this weekend. From PS5 games to fitness trackers to an air purifier, scroll on to outfit your home and your throne with these reviewer-approved consumer tech deals.
Special offer for Gear readers: Get a 1-year subscription to WIRED for $5 ($25 off). This includes unlimited access to WIRED.com and our print magazine (if you’d like). Subscriptions help fund the work we do every day.
Every capacity of the 6th-generation iPad Pro (7/10, WIRED Recommends) is discounted by $50 or $100. The final prices will reflect during checkout. This is a pricey tablet, but it’s a good luxury iPad. The screen is massive with excellent contrast, and performance is snappy. Be sure to browse our Best iPad Accessories guide for additional recommendations.
Apple’s newest MacBook Air will start shipping next week. The $50 introductory discount is pretty standard fare for Apple, but it’s still savings you can’t find anywhere else—even on Apple’s own storefront. This new model is very similar to last year’s MacBook Air, which you can read more about here, but it has a larger 15-inch screen.
We have mixed feelings about AirTags, but this is close to the best price we’ve seen for the individual trackers. They’re convenient for iOS owners looking to track items like luggage or keys. Just make sure you know how to stay secure. Multipacks are on sale as well, though the price is less enticing.
We’ve seen this deal come around before. The Pixel Buds A-Series (8/10, WIRED Recommends) are our pick for the overall best wireless earbuds because of their comfortable fit and well-rounded sound quality. Some wireless earbuds struggle with bass-heavy music, but these buds have a silicone seal that prevents sounds from being washed away.
This stand usually sells for between $140 and $150. It recharges Apple hardware slightly slower than the new version we recommend, but it’s still a convenient way to recharge your MagSafe-supported iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods without having to fuss with a cable. Find more recommendations in our Best MagSafe Accessories guide.
This is a nice price on one of our favorite flash drives. There are tinier drives out there, but the Fit Plus is slim enough that you can leave it in a USB-A port without worrying about it breaking off. It’s also big enough to attach to a keychain so you don’t misplace the thumbnail-sized package.
This is the best upgrade pick of the Samsung Galaxy S23 lineup (9/10, WIRED Recommends). It’s also down to one of the lowest prices we’ve tracked, which should take some of the sting away. The camera system includes a 10X optical zoom sensor that lets you snap wonderfully crisp photos of subjects far away. There’s also a built-in stylus to use on the nearly 6.8-inch screen. The battery lasts for a day and a half with average use. You can also save a bit on the base Samsung Galaxy S23, but it’s been cheaper before. (Don’t forget that we’re giving one away!)
Enter code CNTBNHX8 at checkout after you clip the on-page coupon to see the discount. WIRED reviews editor Julian Chokkattu has had the P1 in his room for close to a year with zero issues. The purifier automatically revs up when it notices the air quality has started to dip (like this past week in New York City). It’s not too loud on its default setting, and it’s rated for rooms between 180 and 320 square feet. It works with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and Siri via Apple’s HomeKit.
Niu is celebrating its anniversary with a sale that ends on June 11. Of the many products on sale, we’ve tested and love the KQi3 Pro as well as the KQi3 Max for $849 ($150 off). They’re nearly identical, but the Max offers a bit more range (7/10, WIRED Recommends). It’s a reliable electric scooter with plenty of power to climb hills, reliable brakes, and nice range.
We’ve seen this discount a gazillion times before, but it’s still one of the best prices we’ve tracked. This is the best streaming stick for cord-cutters who want to use Amazon’s ecosystem. It’s super fast and easy to use, so long as you don’t mind Amazon’s content being front-and-center on your home screen.
Gaming and Streaming Deals
Celebrate Pride Month with this bundle of games, valued at $107. You can pay what you want, but spending $12 gets you all seven included titles, including Celeste, which is one of our favorite indie games. The bundle “features LGBTQ+ characters and themes along with games by LGBTQ+ creators.” Proceeds support the Trevor Project.
We love playing Returnal. It’s a rewarding roguelike that makes death feel less like a loss. This is the best price we’ve seen for the title so far. Note that it is included in PlayStation Plus, which may be worth buying instead if you’re looking to ramp up your game stash.
If you, too, dream of colorful tech, this sale offers a small discount on some of Sony’s console covers. Starlight Blue, Nova Pink, and Galactic Purple are on sale for a limited time. Read our Best PS5 Accessories guide for more ways to make your console stand out.
The Fitbit Charge 5 (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is our favorite Fitbit as well as the best fitness tracker in general. We’ve seen it drop down to $100 during the holiday shopping season last year, but it hasn’t been down to $120 often since then. It can track all sorts of health metrics, from daily step counts to sleep. It also has built-in GPS, which comes in handy for outdoor workouts.
The Inspire 3 is a budget-friendly option that doesn’t go on sale as often as other Fitbits. It’s small enough to wear on a daily basis, which is important considering the battery life, which lasts for more than a week per charge. The screen is still legible though, and there’s tracking for things like resting heart rate and blood oxygen levels while you’re sleeping. Some of the data is locked behind a Fitbit Premium subscription ($10 per month).
The Sense 2 is one of our favorite Fitbits, and this is a low price compared to deals we’ve seen in the past. Aside from the usual workout stats like step count and heart rate, it also has a temperature sensor and a SpO2 sensor to help detect sleep apnea and atrial fibrillation. If you care about general health metrics as much as you do about exercise, this may be the Fitbit for you. Just note that some of this data is locked behind a monthly subscription.
