This weekend, you can save on a variety of tech products, including the sixth-generation iPad, the PlayStation Classic retro console, Sony’s WH1000X-M3 wireless noise-canceling headphones, and more.

The sixth-generation iPad is $299.99 at Best Buy. What makes this deal worth your while is that it’s for the 128GB model, which is rarely available at a discount. This configuration has stayed at $329.99 for a while, so this is a pretty sharp price drop. Amazon currently offers this discount, too, but it has gone in and out of stock since yesterday.

Since this iPad was released in early 2018, Apple has released four other models (the 11-inch iPad Pro, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, the iPad Air, and the iPad mini). Still, Dieter Bohn’s review rings true: it remains one of the best tablets that you can get for under $500, and now it’s cheaper than ever.

This is more of a PSA than an actual deal, but if you’re interested in upgrading to the newer Nintendo Switch model, which has better battery life, GameStop is offering an acceptable amount of trade-in credit for its Pro subscribers.

You can get $200 back for your traded-in Switch, and through September 15th, GameStop will give you an extra $25 in credit, totaling to $225 toward the cost of the device.
