The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite is the best e-reader you can buy, and today, this model is back down to its lowest price yet. Instead of $130, it costs $85 for the 8GB model with special offers (Amazon’s ads baked into the lockscreen, which you can bypass for $20 after you buy it). We cover this deal whenever it happens for a few reasons: it’s a very good e-reader that’s waterproof and has a pin-sharp backlit display.

Those features aren’t available on the regular Kindle, which might be tempting you at $60 ($30 off its regular price). If you want a more durable Kindle, and one with better backlighting that’s easier on the eyes with sharper text, you should pay the $25 premium for the Paperwhite.

Best Buy has slashed the cost of the UE Boom 3, which is one of the best Bluetooth speakers you can buy. Usually $150, it’s $80 today. This speaker answers the call if you’re looking for something small, but powerful. It has 360-degree sound, great battery life, and if you have more than one, you can pair them up for stereo sound via the mobile app. This is the lowest price we’ve seen by a $40 margin.

Apple’s HomePod smart speaker hasn’t seen a big discount since the calendar flipped over to 2020, but Best Buy is selling them for $100 off again today. This speaker is available in space gray or white for $200. We haven’t seen the price drop any further than this, so now is a good time to consider buying one if you’ve been waiting for a discount.
