    Today is a good day to start or renew your subscription to PlayStation Plus: you can find a one-year subscription for around 25 percent off of its usual $59.99 price. At $44.99, it’s a stellar deal for PS4 owners, even if you don’t need to activate it yet; just hold on to the code until your service runs out.

    Even though it’s technically no longer Pi Day, a few deals from yesterday’s celebration are still happening. Whenever TCL’s 6-series 4K HDR TV with Roku software built-in goes on sale, we’re going to tell you because it’s still one of the best 4K TVs that you can get for under $1,000. The 55-inch model costs well under that mark at $579.99, and it should suit your needs well if you need a big TV with slim bezels, Dolby Vision HDR support, and more.

    Microsoft’s Pi Day deals are still happening, and you can find some great discounts on Dell’s XPS 13 laptop with a 4K display is $999, and features an 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, and 256GB of storage, to give an example. If you’d rather have a desktop that can handle some gaming, Dell’s Inspiron desktop boasts an 8th Gen Intel Core i5, the Nvidia GTX 1060, and 8GB of RAM for $685.

    In another Pi Day deal: Acer’s XF250Q gaming monitor usually costs $299.99, but you can find it for $229.99 for now. At this price, it has some impressive features that are usually found in more expensive monitors, like G-Sync compatibility, a 240Hz refresh rate, and 1ms response time. So long as you’re fine with gaming on a 1080p TN panel, this monitor is a bargain.

    Sling TV subscriptions are discounted for new members, and you can get a three-month subscription to its orange and blue channel packages for $25 instead of $40. This is a great offer if you’re looking to tune into the March Madness basketball games that begin next week. While CBS (not included in Sling TV) has the exclusive rights to a few games, TruTV, TNT, and TBS will give you access to most of them.

    It’s not a new deal, but Apple’s sixth-gen iPad continues to be a good one to check out if you want or need a new tablet. Starting at $249 for the 32GB model or $329 for the 128GB tablet, these are currently the best tablets that you can buy under $500, according to the review by my colleague Dieter Bohn.
