There’s arguably no better deal than one that makes a handy, low-cost item drop to a price that falls into impulse-buy territory. While big-ticket items like iPads and noise-canceling headphones may be more attention-grabbing than something like a USB-C charger, it’s often those smaller items that get the most use in our day-to-day life.

Saving a few bucks on some excellent and affordable tech can go a long way without breaking your budget. And if you’re doing some very early holiday shopping, they can make great stocking stuffers or small gifts for any fall birthdays in your life.

Sadly, there aren’t a ton of leftover deals now that Amazon Prime Big Deal Days is over. But the good news is that some of the ones still lingering are small gems of affordable goodies, and we’ve gone ahead and rounded them up below.


The PowerA Enhanced Wired Controller is a budget-minded wired controller for Xbox and PC that connects via Micro USB and features two customizable buttons on its rear. It’s offered in many different colors and licensed designs.

  • Matter may not be the be-all-end-all solution to all our smart home compatibility woes just yet, but you can get TP-Link’s Tapo S505 Smart Light Switch for $19.99 (with a clipped coupon) if you want to be ready for the Matter revolution.

With the MyQ Chamberlain Smart Garage Control, you can open and close your garage door from any location using your smartphone.

  • Jsaux’s 45W USB-C charger with a five-foot cable and included right-angle adapter may be designed for the Steam Deck, but it’s also a great charger for a Nintendo Switch or just about any USB-C phone or tablet. It’s $16.99 ($2 off) right now at Amazon.

PowerWash Simulator

$2524% off

PowerWash Simulator is exactly what it sounds like, and yet, instead of monotonous labor, it’s a joyous FPS game that’s oddly satisfying to play — especially with a buddy in co-op.

  • Goat Simulator 3 for the PS5 is on sale at Amazon for $9.99 ($20 off).
  • Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 4 (with free PS5 upgrade) is selling for $24.99 ($25 off) at Amazon.
  • Streets of Rage 4 for PlayStation 4 is just $20.99 ($14 off) at Amazon. That’s a whole lot of four-player co-op arcade brawling for not a lot of money.
  • Tchia: Oléti Edition is on sale at Amazon for $24.99 ($10 off) on PlayStation 5 and PS4. The colorful exploration game takes some cues from Breath of the Wild, delivering a love letter to the culture and people of the South Pacific island New Caledonia (yes, it’s a real place).

This Samsung Evo Select microSD card offers extra storage for a Nintendo Switch, Steam Deck, or Asus ROG Ally at a good price point.

Belkin’s BoostCharge Pro with MagSafe supports 15W fast wireless charging with MagSafe-compatible iPhones and has a lengthy 6.6-foot built-in cable. Its 15W charging speeds and little kickstand make the BoostCharge Pro with MagSafe the best all-purpose magnetic charging puck.

A lengthy USB-C cable that delivers 100 watts of power, which is enough to power a full-size laptop like the 16-inch MacBook Pro when plugged into an adequate power adapter.

  • Anker’s 341 USB-C 7-in-1 hub is on sale for its lowest price of $29.99 ($5 off) at Amazon. The multi-port dock can output up to 4K resolution via HDMI-out (though it tops out at 30Hz when at 4K, mind you), plus it also has two USB-A 3.0 ports, one USB-C data port, one USB-C power port for up to 100W of power delivery, and SD / microSD card slots.

The ChomChom is a reusable cat and dog hair remover that works great for furniture.


LifeStraw’s Peak Series Straw offers a more rugged design and improved flow rate than the original model. It still filters out bacteria and other hazardous materials from water, though, which makes it a great camping companion.

  • The 32-page Rocketbook Core is down to $23.99 (about $12 off) on Amazon. In a way, the reusable smart notebook offers the best of both worlds, allowing you to jot down notes and quickly store them in popular cloud services like Google Drive.
