Star Wars Day sales, last-minute Mother’s Day gifts, and more of today’s best tech deals

If your mom’s a Star Wars fan, you’re good to go.

Mother’s Day is next week and if you haven’t gotten anything for your mom yet, you’re cutting it pretty close. If she’s an athlete, a Samsung Gear Sport smartwatch is a great choice, and for a limited time you can get one for $70 off, plus a free strap. A smart home device like an Echo Show or a robotic vacuum is always a great option as well — bonus points if you set it up for her. Plus, the internet’s favorite pressure cooker / slow cooker, the Instant Pot, is on sale for $109.99 (usually $149.99). If anyone in your family doesn’t have one of these bad boys, this is a pretty good deal on the six-quart version.

Star Wars Day, an equally important holiday, was yesterday, May 4th. (May the fourth be with you, get it?) But plenty of retailers are celebrating all weekend with deals on Star Wars-themed merch. The Darth Vader Robot Vacuum is $100 off at Samsung (usually $799). For moms who are also huge Star Wars fans, this is definitely the perfect gift. If you order by Monday, it’ll arrive by next Sunday.
