Looking to save some money on your next gadget purchase? We’re crawling the Web in search of the best tech deals so you never have to pay full retail price. Whether you’re in the market for a new TV or a pair of wireless headphones, we’re highlighting deals on the tech you actually want.
It’s that time of the year. With Fourth of July sales behind us, the spotlight is on Amazon and its forthcoming Prime Day celebration. This year, the summer deal-a-thon will be longer (36 hours total) than Prime Day 2017 and it’ll also include offline deals at Whole Foods stores nationwide.
Twitch Prime members will also get free games and complimentary in-game freebies everyday through Prime Day. Titles include Pillars of Eternity, Battle Chief Brigade, and more. Members will also get in-game loot from games like Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds. Twitch Prime is free with a Prime membership.
To kick things off, Amazon is taking $100 off its Echo Show, which brings it to an all-time low of $129.99 (for Prime members only).
Amazon isn’t the only retailer with an ongoing summer sale. Through the month of July, Dell is celebrating Black Friday in July with discounts on 4K TVs, Alienware rigs, gaming monitors, and more. Standout deals to date include the Alienware AW2518HF Gaming Monitor for $329.99 ($170 off), the Alienware 34-inch Curved Monitor for $999.99 ($500 off), and the Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System for $299 ($100 off).
Best Buy is taking $50 to $150 off the 13-inch and 15.4-inch MacBook Pro with prices starting at $1,249.99 ($50 off). This mode features a 2.3GHz Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSD. Although it’s a respectable amount off, we’ve seen better MacBook Pro sales and recommend waiting for Best Buy’s next discount, which could come as soon as Prime Day.
If you’re a fan of Google’s smart home devices, Walmart has an ongoing Google Home sale and some prices have dropped further this week than they have in previous days. Our favorites include:
