At Amazon, you can get Apple’s AirPods that include a wired charging case for $100, down from their usual $160 price. Costco members can get this same price, too, though it’ll cost a little more if you aren’t a member. If you fall into the latter group, you’ll need to create an account, then check out with the non-member surcharge that tacks on a 5 percent fee to the total. In this case, it was a paltry $7 that brings the total (plus tax) up to around $115. Not bad at all.

A handful of months ago, we wrote about a deal on the OnePlus 7T that dropped its price from $599 to $499. That price has fallen considerably since, and today’s deal at Woot is evidence of that. You can get one for just $370. This is a new, unlocked model in either the “glacier blue” or “frosted silver” colorway, with 128GB of storage and support for a single SIM card. It has a one-year warranty through OnePlus and includes all original accessories. It’s a great value, considering it has the Snapdragon 855 Plus processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 90Hz refresh rate display that makes everything appear smoother on the screen.

One caveat here is that it’s the T-Mobile version of the phone, and it comes pre-loaded with T-Mobile applications. That’s obviously not so bad if you’re a T-Mobile user, but note that the phone is also useable on GSM MVNO carriers like Mint Mobile, Google Fi, Cricket, and others. This version of the phone won’t work with Verizon or Sprint.

Bose QC35

You have another opportunity to save on Bose QuietComfort 35 II wireless noise-canceling headphones. Normally around $300, they’re down to $200 at Amazon and Walmart. Given the tough competition in the $300–400 range, what with better options available like Sony’s WH1000X-M4 and Bose’s own Noise Cancelling Headphones 700, $200 is a really good price point for these slightly older but still solid QC35 II headphones.

These lightweight, over-ear wireless headphones have one of the best active noise cancellation effects to silence distractions.


If you’ve been wanting to dip into the gruesome, zany Danganronpa series on the cheap, Slickdeals points out that you can get first and second installments in the series on Android and iOS for just $5 a pop. This makes for the most affordable way to get into this cult classic franchise that doesn’t require buying a PS Vita. Once you make your way through the first two games, my colleague Megan Farokhmanesh wrote about what makes Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony so special.
