    The biggest products to hit this week include the iPhone XR, Apple’s more affordable twist on the iPhone XS and XS Max smartphones, and Red Dead Redemption 2, Rockstar’s prequel that’s driving a ton of deals on consoles. If you’re not after either of those — or if you’ve already bought them — there are plenty of other deals that are worth rummaging through as we inch closer to the holidays.

    Red Dead Redemption 2 is now available for the PS4 and Xbox One. Sony’s PS4 Pro bundle with the game included is old news at this point, but this week saw big price drops on Xbox One consoles at a variety of retailers, both online and in store. Here are a few of the best bundles that are $100 off:


    Amazon has discounted its lineup of Fire Kids Edition tablets, and you can save up to $40 if you have your eye on the largest Fire 10 HD Kids Edition tablet. No matter which size piques your interest, each comes with a microSD slot for easy storage expansion, a bouncy case that will protect it, a year subscription to kid-friendly content, and a no-fuss two-year warranty.

    In case you don’t want to spend close to $120 on a Google Home, Insignia’s smart Bluetooth speaker is a more practical option that’s deeply discounted. It, too, packs in Google Assistant functionality and a practical alarm clock that displays the time.

    Buying over-ear noise-canceling headphones that are worth the money is usually an expensive endeavor. If you’re hoping to spend less than $50, Taotronics is offering Verge readers a special discount on its affordable noise-canceling headphones. You won’t get Bose QuietComfort 35 II or Sony 1000X M3 levels of comfort, sound quality, or design here, but these are decent for the price.

    Speaking of headphones, Optoma NuForce is also giving Verge readers an exclusive deal on its BE4 Sport wireless earbuds. These offer really good sound isolation, water and sweat resistance, a comfy fit, and better sound quality than your average earbuds.

    We’ve worked with RAVPower to give Verge readers the best deal on its 26,800mAh power bank with power delivery, which allows it to charge devices like Nintendo Switch, a MacBook, and more, while you use them. Usually priced at $75.99, it costs $49.39 with offer code RP35TVG.

    It’s almost time to vote. Make sure to do that, and also consider checking out Humble’s latest bundle of books on politics, culture, and stories that speak on their intersection in interesting ways. All proceeds go to the ACLU, so in addition to getting some new books to check out, it’s an easy way to help fund a crucial organization.
