Prime Big Deal Days is no more. As is typically the case, however, a smattering of Prime-exclusive deals are still hanging around for those who missed out on the retailer’s second Prime Day event of the year. Not every deal that remains is super expensive, either, meaning anyone who wants to pick up a Verge-approved gadget without spending over a hundred bucks can easily do so.

Per usual, the lingering sub-$100 Prime Day deals cover the entire spectrum of tech. By and large, the discounts have dissipated on Amazon’s own devices — including the stellar sales we saw on the Echo Pop and entry-level Kindle — but Amazon is still discounting our favorite MagSafe charger, Jabra earbuds, Xbox controllers, and Elgato’s six-key Stream Deck Mini, not to mention a handful of our favorite non-tech gadgets here at The Verge.

Below, we’ve rounded up our favorite deals for under $100 that are still available, juuuust in case you’re looking to keep your spending in check.
