When the calendar flips over to 2021 this Friday, January 1st, some of the best deals that we’ve been featuring for the past few months could come to an end. Assuredly, not every single one will end, but judging from previous years, the start of a new year means the holiday season is over and most companies will likely want to raise their prices. Here are a few mainstay deals that might not be around for much longer.

If you sign up for YouTube TV by December 31st, you’ll get a free Google Chromecast with Google TV (pictured above), the latest streaming device that supports 4K HDR playback and includes a remote.

Next up, this great Walmart-exclusive deal combines a Switch Pro controller with a download code for Super Mario Odyssey for just $70. This deal is likely to sell out, but keep an eye on it, as it occasionally restocks.


The Switch Pro released alongside the Switch console in 2017, and it’s a tough controller to beat. It offers an unmatched set of features (HD rumble, motion controls, NFC), and it’s one of the most comfortable Switch controllers out there.


The Galaxy A51 5G that comes unlocked supports sub-6GHz 5G networks, which excludes Verizon’s UWB network. It features a Snapdragon 765G processor, 128GB of storage, and other noteworthy specs like a 6.5-inch OLED screen and a 48-megapixel main camera sensor.

Amazon Echo Buds

$13069% off

Amazon’s original Echo Buds offer features like Bose noise reduction and a customizable fit, along with great audio at a lower price than most competitors.

Some of the best deals this holiday season have been on flagship wireless headphones from Bose and Sony. They’re not what I’d call cheap — even at their discounted prices — but if you value great sound quality and hushing some outside distractions with noise cancellation, either are worth your money.


Bose’s flagship over-the-ear headphones allow you to connect two devices simultaneously and have a more modern design compared to other Bose headphones. You can grab a pair of Certified Refurbished ones for $224 (before tax) with code PREZDAY20 entered at checkout.


Sony’s latest wireless headphones include better noise cancellation, plus the ability to pair two devices concurrently via Bluetooth. This matches the lowest price.


The 2020 Echo Dot features a more spherical design than an actual dot but can still do all the things Alexa does with other Echo models.
