Unless you’re willing to shell out for the Apple Magic Keyboard, Logitech’s Folio Touch might be your best bet for turning your second-gen, 11-inch iPad Pro into a laptop. Right now, both Amazon and Best Buy are taking $30 off the well-regarded keyboard case, rendering it one of the best sales we’ve seen on the device in recent months. In addition to the dedicated trackpad and a fabric-like finish, Logitech’s offering features like backlit keys, iPadOS integration, and more protection than you’ll get from any of Apple’s proprietary offerings. It’s heavy, sure, but the added heft is a small price to pay when compared to the cost of a replacement screen.


Logitech’s Combo Touch represents a solid choice for fifth-gen 12.9-inch iPad Pro users looking for an alternative to Apple’s pricey keyboard cases.

It’s hard to talk about platforming without mentioning the most iconic plumber in existence (and for good reason). Luckily, if you happened to have missed Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, Mario’s latest 3D romp for the Nintendo Switch, you can pick up a physical copy of the game for $10 off at Amazon or Walmart. Like the last time it went on sale, today’s deal will likely only be available for a limited time, meaning now is your chance to nab the enhanced Wii U port and its feline-focused expansion before the price jumps up again.


That latest Mario release for the Nintendo Switch is a polished version of the Wii U classic, Super Mario 3D World, with a new expansion called Bowser’s Fury, which sees you collecting coins in an archipelago as you skirt, or battle, a kaiju-sized Bowser. At its core, however, both the port and its expansion are clever platformers with plenty of charm, making them an ideal package.
Although it's not the best-looking game by modern standards, the recent remaster also helps showcase the Switch’s more powerful hardware, which allows for better visuals and improved performance over the original. If you never got to experience this keystone title on the Nintendo Wii, this iteration is the definitive way to play this game — not just for the spectacular base game, but for the fantastic expansion as well.

Sony’s next-gen 1000XM4 earbuds may be just around the corner, but if you’re looking to pick up a budget-based pair of fitness earbuds, Amazon, Best Buy, and B&H Photo are all still offering a sizable, 51-percent discount on the Sony WF-SP800N, bringing Sony’s mid-tier wireless earbuds to $98. They don’t sound quite as detailed as the Sony 1000XM3 — nor did they make our list of the best wireless earbuds — but they pack formidable lows and proper sweat resistance, giving them a slight edge over the 1000XM3 at the gym.

The Sony WF-SP800N aren’t showstoppers, but they sport a competent noise cancellation, dust and water resistance, and enough bass to fuel your marathon training sessions.
