Head to Best Buy and you can instantly save $30 on a pair of Sony WF-1000XM4 wireless headphones. It might not sound like a massive price drop, but remember the XM4 once reigned supreme among the best wireless earbuds when they first hit stores in the summer of 2021. Over a year old later, and they’re still great, with up to 8 hours of battery life, superb sound quality and truly exceptional active noise cancellation. Pair those features with four months of free Apple Music streaming access, and a $30 discount doesn’t sound so bad, does it?

For example, take a look at this clearance deal from Best Buy that slashes $129 off the price of the Lenovo IdeaPad 3, a popular Chromebook with up to 10 hours of battery life, a super-fast AMD A6 processor, and an 11 inch HD screen. All this in a device that weighs only 2.42 pounds? Count on us.

While we wait for Amazon’s sale to finally go live, Walmart is already here with some of the best deals we’ve seen in months. Walmart’s sitewide Rival Sale runs through October 13, and they’re slashing prices on many cutting-edge technologies, such as this stunning 75-inch smart TV featuring upgraded Full Array LED technology, cognitive graphics and audio processing, and intelligent 4K upscaling so you always get the best viewing experience, no matter what you’re watching. The TV is usually pretty steep at nearly $3,000, so Walmart is taking a whopping $1,699 off the price. That’s a 57% discount!

The OLED version of the Nintendo Switch has been out for a while now, which means deals are becoming more and more common. You can currently buy one of these consoles from Amazon for just $297.66, down $42 from its regular retail price. Will the price drop even further when the official sale goes live? Only time will tell, but in the meantime, we’re pretty happy with this budget offering. The console is the newest Switch to hit the market, with 64GB of internal storage, upgraded speakers and a stunning 7-inch OLED display.

The Pixel 6a was already very, very affordable at $449, but this Amazon deal sees $100 waived for the lowest price we’ve ever seen. Even with those free gift cards mentioned elsewhere on this page for the new Pixel 7, it’s still quite an expensive phone. So if you’re looking for something more budget-friendly, but with a few more years of software and security updates to come, then the 6a is a great choice.

Save $200 on a Z Flip 4

Sorry, Amazon your sale price doesn’t cut it in that it’s $53 more than this very tempting deal from Best Buy on one of our favorite phones of the year. The Flip 4 is $200 off right now and the best price we’ve seen without needing any sort of trade-in. The Flip 4 is a big improvement over last year’s model with a longer lasting battery, thinner hinge and better visuals. Bora Purple is equally stunning. If you want to check out exchanges or network deals, head over to our Galaxy Z Flip 4 deals roundup.

Our deals guru Patrick has rounded up the best Pixel 7 pre-orders since the phone was showcased at a recent Google event. Truth be told, most of the best ones require you to trade in an old device to get the best prices. If you’re looking to buy direct (and don’t want to tie your soul to one of the expensive networks), then this is a great opportunity to get a great deal on an unlocked device. Rather than cash on phones, Amazon is launching a $100 Amazon gift card with the Pixel 7 or $200 on the Pixel 7 Pro, which will be very easy to spend over the next few months, especially with the Black Friday coming next month. It’s the best deal we expect to see throughout this Amazon sale on new phones, but we expect to see older Pixels and deals on Samsung phones tomorrow as well.

Video doorbell call with Amazon Echo Show 5

Simply put, the Echo Show is a smart speaker with a screen that has all sorts of additional uses. Video calling between other Echo Show devices is one of our favorites with the basics like using it for a clock, timers, photo displays, weather reports or even syncing with a smart doorbell’s camera . This model with a 5-inch screen is great value at $50 off and is a great size for a bedside table. There is a larger 8-inch model, which may be a little too big for the bedside, but works well for other surfaces in the home. It’s usually $129, which is a little pricey compared to the 5-inch, but today you can get it for just $70 on Amazon.

If you haven’t yet discovered the world of smart speakers, this is a great deal. Or maybe you just need an extra Alexa speaker for one of the other rooms in your house? This is the latest take on the Echo Dot in puck design, newer models have a spherical design which honestly sounds better as these can get a little muffled. If you don’t mind spending $25 instead, you can get one of these 4th-gen models during Amazon’s full Echo sale.

The Kindle Paperwhite is $40 cheaper today, bringing it to the same price as the entry-level Kindle. It’s a steal because you get a much more modern design with a flush bezel screen design that’s also waterproof. This generation of Paperwhite also offers the warm light feature usually reserved for much more expensive Kindles. If you’re planning on buying a Kindle anytime soon, this is the one we’d pick. Check out Amazon’s full Kindle selection if you want to see the other models.
