If you use an iPhone and are looking for a reliable set of wireless earbuds that connect quickly, Apple’s second-generation AirPods are back down to their lowest price at Amazon. Normally $159, they cost $129 right now. This model includes a wired charging case. Other retailers like Best Buy and Walmart are selling them for $139. $10 isn’t a huge discount, but we thought you’d like to know that now is a good time to invest.

Earlier today, Newegg offered a great $50 off deal on Apple’s AirPods Pro wireless earbuds, but stock appears to have sold out so we removed the link from this post.

Ring Spotlight Cam

Yesterday’s $50 off deal on the Ring Video Doorbell 3 Plus that includes an Amazon Echo Show 5 smart display is still happening. But if Ring’s Floodlight Cam seems more useful to you, you can get a similar deal on that at Best Buy. Normally $250, it’s $210 for the Floodlight Cam, and it comes with an Echo Show 5 with purchase. The two items together usually costs $340, so you’re saving a good amount here.

If you buy Samsung’s Galaxy S20 phone at Amazon, you’ll get a set of Galaxy Buds Plus wireless earbuds tossed in as a complimentary gift. The phone itself isn’t steeply discounted — just $20 off its usual $999 price. Though, if you had your eye on this model, now certainly isn’t a bad time to buy. It’s a very good Android phone, and it’s fitting that they come with the wireless earbuds we think are currently the best overall model on the market.

If you’re building a PC, or you’re looking to upgrade yours with more RAM, you can get 16GB (two 8GB sticks) of Corsair’s Vengeance LPX DDR4 3,000MHz RAM at Amazon for just $60. Just make sure their speed is compatible with your motherboard. These usually cost around $80, and unless you’re running intensive applications and games, 16GB of RAM will probably get you by for a while.

You can also get a great deal on HyperX Fury desktop PC RAM if you’re looking to boost your PC with 32GB of RAM. A two-pack of 16GB DDR4 sticks clocked at 3,000MHz costs $138 instead of $173 at Amazon. This RAM count (along with whatever new graphics card Nvidia has been teasing recently) should make your PC ready for the onslaught of games to come in the next few years.

Update 12:40PM August 26th: Newegg’s deal on the AirPods Pro came to an early end, as it appears to have sold out of its stock, so we updated this post to reflect that.
