It’s time for another roundup of this week’s best deals. You may have already seen some of these if you’ve been keeping up with our deals coverage every day, but I’m sure there are some surprises in here. Before that, though, check out our newly-published Back to School gift guide. The beginning of August marks when many people who attend school realize how little time they actually have to prepare for the school year ahead. If that describes you or someone you know, I hope that our guide helps you. Otherwise, carry on to see what we’ve brought you this weekend.

Final Fantasy VII Remake for PS4, PS5 is up to 50 percent off
Whether you have any attachment to Final Fantasy VII or not, it’s worth picking up the Remake for PS4 or PS5, as it’s both very good and more affordable than usual for a limited time. You can grab a digital download or buy the disc version of Final Fantasy VII Remake for PS4 (upgradeable to the PS5 version for free with purchase) for $30, down from $60
If you have a PS5, the special edition called Intergrade that includes the new Yuffie episode in addition to the base game is just $50 digitally or on disc (usually $70)
A modern retelling of the 1997 PlayStation classic. This game is the first of an unknown number of episodic installments retelling the story of Final Fantasy VII.
A three-pack of Google Wifi routers is $150 at Amazon
One of this week’s most popular deals was, unsurprisingly, this fantastic sale on a three-pack of Google Wifi routers. Normally $200, it’s still $150 at Amazon. Google usually charges $100 for a single router, but you can outfit your home with a whole mesh Wi-Fi system comprised of three routers (each of which has dual gigabit ethernet ports) for just $50 more.
Google Wifi three-pack
Google’s Wifi mesh system released in 2016, and even though it’s been succeeded by the Nest Wifi, it’s still worth snagging one of these routers as a replacement or to add onto your Google or Nest Wifi setups.
The 40mm Apple Watch Series 6 in red is $300 at Woot
The best deal currently available on the Apple Watch Series 6 is at Woot, where you can get the 40mm Apple Watch Series 6 in the all-red colorway for $300 (normally $400). This is the model that we see discounted most often, perhaps because of its divisive color scheme. Just to note: $250 is the lowest price that we’ve seen for this one, and Apple may unveil the successor to the Series 6 at its annual fall hardware event. But, if you need a watch now, this is a solid deal.

Apple’s wearable features an always-on display and new sensors that provide the ability to monitor your blood oxygen levels.
