You can grab the AirPods Pro for just $200 at Amazon and B&H Photo today. Normally, these wireless earbuds cost $249. While this is not the lowest price we have seen Apple’s flagship earbuds sell for, it’s still a good deal. Unlike the standard AirPods, the Pro model features silicone tips, allowing for a more customizable fit for your ears in addition to better sound quality and active noise cancellation.

Speaking of B&H, the retailer has the 64GB 2020 iPad Air in silver or green for $559, $40 off its usual price. Unfortunately, you can only preorder the device because it is currently not in stock at B&H Photo. If you are okay with waiting for it to restock, this is still a good deal considering the new iPad Air just released last week.

Despite the $100 price increase compared to last year, my colleague Dieter Bohn pointed out in his review that this is the iPad model to get because of the better screen and faster processor.

Samsung’s 860 Pro with a storage capacity of 1TB is down to $200 at Amazon. This storage configuration normally costs $300, and this is the lowest price the product has been. The 860 is more expensive than other SATA SSDs on the market, but it has 2-bit MLC technology, which can be more reliable in the long run.

If you need to bulk up the storage on your Xbox One gaming console or something to store your backwards compatible games when the Xbox Series X / S launch next month, Amazon has a 4TB external hard drive by Seagate for just $88. Additionally, it includes a free two-month trial for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which can be used with the new consoles when they are available.

  • $107

Delegating your older games to slower, but far cheaper storage is a clever way to let you have all of your games accessible without crowding your already-limited SSD space — especially when there’s a sale. Right now, you can pick up Seagate’s special edition Game Pass version of the 4TB Game Drive For Xbox at $107.24 instead of $149.99. This model comes with two complimentary months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which offers access to more than 100 games and other perks.

However, it’s worth pointing out that any external USB drive will be significantly slower to load than what the Series X’s and Series S’s respective SSDs can handle.

If you are looking for a new phone and prefer Android as your OS, Amazon, Best Buy, and B&H Photo have the unlocked Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G for $100 off. If you activate the phone when purchasing through Best Buy, you can save an additional $50, bringing the price down to $550. This model includes 128GB of storage, a 6.5-inch display, and a refresh rate of 120Hz.

With the PS5 launching in roughly two weeks, there’s still a bunch of fantastic games that launched on the PS4 this year, including Final Fantasy VII Remake by Square Enix. Currently, you can get this action RPG for just $40 at Amazon or Best Buy.
