Best Tablet Deal

Apple iPad (9th Gen) for $270 ($59 off)

Sure, it’s last year’s model, but this 9th-gen iPad is plenty capable for most people (8/10, WIRED Recommends). It’s fast thanks to the A13 Bionic (the same one in the iPhone 11), has a nice 10.2-inch screen, and supports the first-gen Apple Pencil (along with the Smart Keyboard). There are several multitasking improvements you can enjoy in iPadOS 16 too. If you want the latest 10th-gen iPad, it’s seeing its first discount right now for $419 ($30 off).

Best Phone Deal

Google Pixel 7 for $499 ($100 off)

This is Google’s newest flagship phone, which has only been out for a little more than a month, but it’s already at an even killer price. The Pixel 7 (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is powered by the company’s new Tensor G2 chipset and is plenty fast to handle nearly any smartphone task. It has a 90-Hz AMOLED screen, a battery that lasts a full day, and wireless charging. Oh, and one of the best cameras on a smartphone. Seriously.

Best Smartwatch Deal 

Apple Watch Series 8 (41 mm) Smartwatch for $350 ($50 off)

The Apple Watch Series 8 (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is our favorite Apple Watch. You get all the latest health features like an electrocardiogram, precise heart rate monitor, and blood oxygen level sensor. New in this model is a wrist-based temperature sensing feature that tracks your skin temperature, this can be really useful for tracking your period or fertility. Apple has also added Crash Detection, which can identify when you’ve been in a severe car crash and will contact emergency services to send help. The 45-mm version is also on sale for $379 ($50 off).

Best Ebook Reader Deal

Kindle Paperwhite (2021, 11th Gen) Ebook Reader for $95 ($45 off)

We love ebooks here at WIRED—they’ve helped one of our writers read more than 100 books this year alone. Amazon refreshed its Kindle Paperwhite series last year and it’s our favorite Kindle for most people. The 6.8-inch screen has pleasant adjustable warm lighting so it’s easier on the eyes, and it’s waterproof—perfect for folks who read in the tub. If you don’t mind spending more, the fancier Paperwhite Signature edition (8/10, WIRED Recommends), which auto-adjusts the brightness to your surroundings and offers faster page turns, is also on sale for $130 ($60 off).

Best Charger Deal

Satechi 108-Watt USB-C 3-Port Wall Charger for $56 ($19 off)—Use Code BFCM25

Enter code BFCM25 at checkout. Satechi’s wall charger can charge up to three USB-C devices up to 108 watts. Each port disperses a different amount of power, so if you just have one device plugged in, it’ll get 100 watts; two devices can get a 60/45-watt split (or 88/20 watts), and three will get 45/30/30 or 58/30/20 watts. In any case, no matter if you plug in a beefy laptop or a smartphone, there should be enough power to fast-charge everything.

More Charging Cable Deals

Nimble PowerKnit USB-C to USB-C Cable for $15 ($10 off)

Nimble’s knitted fabric charging cables are pretty. Is it weird to want a pretty-looking charging cable? But they’re also rated to carry up to 60 watts of power, enough to juice up a MacBook Air. Best of all, it’s made from certified recycled plastic and aluminum. These are USB-C to USB-C but there are Lightning to USB-C cables and various sizes on sale

Nimble Champ portable charger

Best Power Bank Deal

Nimble Champ Portable Charger for $30 ($33 off)

You might notice a theme. We like when companies pay attention to the environment and use eco-friendly materials. This portable charger is our top pick in our guide and is made of 73 percent post-consumer plastic and comes in plastic-free packaging. (There’s also a two-year warranty.) It’s compact yet packs 10,000 mAh of power, which is enough to recharge a phone two times. It supports the Power Delivery standard and Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4 so it’s compatible with a wide-range of devices. There’s one USB-C and one USB-A port.

Home Theater

Best TV Deal

LG C2 OLED 42-Inch 4K TV for $897 ($348 off)

We love OLED as a display technology because they deliver some of the best black levels around. That’s because each pixel on the screen acts as its own blacklight and can turn itself off to produce true blacks. This model is one of the best OLEDs you’ll find, offering even brighter colors than its predecessor. This is a smaller size, but it’s great as a giant computer monitor when you’re not streaming your favorite shows. It supports up to 120 frames per second at 4K, so it’s super smooth when gaming with the latest consoles and PCs. The 48-inch model is also on sale for $1,040 ($157 off).

Vizio M Series 5.1.2 soundbar and speakers

Best Soundbar Deal

Vizio M-Series Elevate 5.1.2 Soundbar for $350 ($150 off)

It’s not the latest model from Vizio, but we like this Dolby Atmos-enabled soundbar (9/10, WIRED Recommends). You get extra speakers and a subwoofer for a nice surround sound experience, and it’s all compact enough to use in apartments or smaller living spaces.

Chromecast with remote

Best Streaming Deal

Google Chromecast With Google TV 4K Streaming Dongle for $40 ($10 off)

Google may have taken the world by storm with the original Chromecast, but it took its sweet time delivering a dongle that included a remote control plus an actual interface to browse through. Now, the Chromecast With Google TV (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is one of our favorites. If you’re using an older TV and don’t need 4K, the new HD model is on sale for $20 ($10 off).

Best Headphone Deal

Sony WH-1000XM5 Wireless Headphones for $348 ($52 off)

Sony products always have names that are a garbled mess, but that doesn’t stop the WH-1000XM5 (9/10 WIRED Recommends) from being the absolute best wireless headphones for most people. You get great sound, good looks, and 30 hours of battery life. Best of all, the microphones are pretty great for phone calls, and Sony’s active noise cancelation tech does a great job of drowning out the pesky sounds around you. 

Apple AirPods Pro 2nd Generation

Best Wireless Earbuds Deal

Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen, 2022) Wireless Earbuds for $200 ($50 off)

Yes, they look like the same AirPods Pro from 2019, but Apple actually updated them this year. The second generation (9/10 WIRED recommends) have longer battery life and better overall sound quality. Plus, the noise cancelation is top-notch in the industry right now, giving you all the opportunity to drown out the jackhammering down the street and binge that new true-crime podcast you’ve been dying to start.

HyperX Cloud Alpha Wireless Gaming Headset

Best Wireless Gaming Headset Deal

HyperX Cloud Alpha Wireless Gaming Headset for $160 ($40 off)

We here at WIRED rarely give out 10/10 ratings, but HyperX’s new wireless gaming headset managed the feat purely because of its exceptional, if not alarming, battery life: 300 hours. Seriously. Three hundred. It helps that this is paired with rich, booming sound, and they’re comfortable to wear for long sessions. 

sonos one speakers

Best Smart Speaker Deal

Sonos One for $175 ($44 off)

The Sonos One is our favorite smart speaker because, unlike most smart speakers, it offers choice. You can choose between Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa (and Siri via AirPlay 2)—certainly helpful when the climate of voice assistants is somewhat dire. Smarts aside, it also sounds fantastic for its size with enough power to fill most rooms.

Best Bluetooth Speaker Deal

UE Boom 3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker for $100 ($29 off)

This is our favorite Bluetooth speaker, which says a lot because there are a heck of a lot of Bluetooth speakers out there. The Ultimate Ears Boom 3 (9/10, WIRED Recommends) dishes out balanced sound and it has a waterproof construction. It lasts around 15 hours on a single charge and has a 100-foot Bluetooth range. What’s not to love?

Home Office

Best Office Chair Deal

Branch Ergonomic Office Chair for $280 ($49 off)—Use Code BFCM

This is our absolute favorite office chair because it has a great blend of features for the price. This discount makes it even better. It’s a breeze to put together and has a range of adjustments to get the setup to your liking. That includes adjustable lumbar support, seat depth, and armrests. It doesn’t keep your back as upright, but that’s one of its few flaws. It’s great for both tall and short people.

Jarvis standing desk

Best Standing Desk Deal

Fully Jarvis Bamboo Standing Desk for $479 ($121 off)

Want a desk that goes up and down? This is our favorite. The Fully Jarvis has a motor that moves the desktop up and down with ease and silence. You can set height presets so you don’t need to remember exactly what height setting you prefer—just press a button. The desktop itself is bamboo, which is stylish and feels nice. You get a 15-year warranty on the desk frame components and a 5-year warranty on desktop surfaces to boot.

Best Laptop Deal

Lenovo Flex 5 Windows Laptop for $600 ($200 off)

You don’t need to spend thousands of dollars on a laptop these days. This Lenovo is the best Windows laptop you can buy, as you’ll find in our Best Laptops guide. It’s got enough power for most everyday tasks thanks to the AMD Ryzen 5 and 16-GB RAM combo inside, plus the added boost of 512-GB SSD storage. There are ports aplenty too.

Best Gaming Computer Deal

Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 Laptop (Ryzen 7, RTX 3060) for $900 ($500 off)

This is the best 14-inch gaming laptop you’ll find, especially at this price. It remains a showcase of portability and PC gaming power. The specs add up to a solid mid-tier gaming machine, with a fantastic keyboard and sharp display, and it just looks really pretty too.

Best Keyboard Deal

Logitech G915 Lightspeed Wireless Mechanical Keyboard for $180 ($70 off)

This mechanical keyboard is especially great for professionals. It’s large, with keys that offer a ton of travel and pleasing feedback. The five macro keys make it great for anyone that loves to set up keyboard shortcuts to save valuable time. It’s built well, the keys are raised and comfy to type on, and the connection is reliable thanks to Logitech’s Lightspeed dongle, which plugs into your PC (you can also use Bluetooth).

Best Tiny Keyboard Deal

Razer Huntsman Mini Mechanical Keyboard for $70 ($50 off)

Mini keyboards are great. They take up less room and cut out all those keys you might not use. If that’s what you’re looking for, then you should snag the Huntsman Mini, which is one of our favorite mechanical keyboards. It’s understated and offers customizable key cap options. You’ll have to learn new keystrokes to move the cursor around because it doesn’t have arrow keys.

Steelseries Prime Wireless gaming mouse

Best Mouse Deal

SteelSeries Prime Wireless Mouse for $52 ($50 off)

It’s not flashy like most gaming mice in our guide, but that’s not the only reason we like it so much. The SteelSeries Prime Wireless fits a wide range of hand sizes pretty well. It’s also super responsive—it was built for esports gamers after all—and clicky buttons plus a great wireless range make it even better. 

Dell 27 inch curved gaming monitor

Best Monitor Deal

Dell 27-inch Curved Gaming Monitor for $190 ($100 off)

It doesn’t matter if you’re a gamer. You’ll often find that the “gaming” version of a product is better than the rest of its peers (except maybe gaming chairs). This Dell is a good example. It’s a step up over most budget monitors, and it’s a steal at its sub-$200 price. It’s got specs we like, from a large 27-inch screen to a Quad HD resolution and 165-Hz refresh rate. 

Lo and Sons Hanover backpack

Best Backpack Deal

Lo & Sons Hanover 2 Laptop Backpack for $119 ($120 off)

This is the most versatile backpack we’ve tested. The included detachable insert has four padded pockets for easy organization and, importantly, separation. Stick all your tech-adjacent dongles and chargers in the insert, then take it out for fast transformation into a travel-ready carry-on, or use it to stash baby gear for quick conversion into a diaper bag.

Best Robot Vacuum Deal

iRobot Roomba J7+ Robot Vacuum for $599 ($201 off)

This is our absolute favorite robot vacuum if money is no object. It’s attractive, easy to use, and most of all, effective. It has powerful suction, great navigation, and it empties automatically into the bin, which means you don’t have to empty it as often.

Best Cordless Stick Vacuum Deal

Dyson Cyclone V10 Animal Cordless Vacuum for $400 ($100 off)

The Dyson V10 Cyclone (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is from 2018, but it’s the stick vac of choice for several WIRED Gear members. The suction is strong, it’s relatively lightweight, and it’s easy to maneuver. It comes with brush heads for cleaning up pet hair, and you can even convert the unit into a hand vac. Learn more in our Best Dyson Vacuums guide. There are several other newer Dyson models on sale. 

Oral B Pro 1000 toothbrush

Best Electric Toothbrush Deal

Oral-B Pro 1000 Oscillating Electric Toothbrush for $30 ($20 off)

Skip the smart toothbrush and get a more powerful cleaner with Oral-B’s Pro 1000. The Pro 1000 has been around for a while and continues to outshine more expensive models with fancier features. The price is right and it’s rechargeable, but the whole thing is chunky and can easily get grimy from toothpaste. You need to rinse it thoroughly after every brush. 

Biking and Scooters

Best Ebike Deal

Cowboy 4 ST Ebike for $2,490 ($500 off)

The Cowboy 4 ST (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is a beautiful, low-maintenance bike that’s easy to put together. It has a removable battery, and lights that automatically turn on when it’s dark. It’s best for folks taller than 5 feet, 6 inches, but just know that the 250-watt motor might not be powerful enough if you’re in a super-hilly area. Check our Best Ebikes guide for more.

Best Electric Scooter Deal
