Although most tech deals this week were limited-time sales, there remain a few good ones to consider as we head into the weekend. Apple’s Mac Mini M1 is down to $600, or $100 off its normal price, and Best Buy has the original Google Nest Hub for only $40. Solo Stove is having a sale on its Bonfire fire pit and some of our favorite Sennheiser wireless earbuds are still $100 off. Here are the best tech deals from this week that you can still get today.
Mac Mini M1
Apple’s Mac Mini M1 is down to its all-time-low price of $600 thanks to a sale and an automatically applied coupon. You’re getting all of the performance boosts provided by the M1 chipset in a compact desktop package. This is a good machine to get if you have an older desktop that needs replacing, but you don’t want to spend a ton of money.
Google Nest Hub (1st-gen)
Google’s original Nest Hub is down to $40 at Best Buy, or $50 off its normal price. While it doesn’t have the motion sensor and the improved audio of the latest Nest Hub, we still like it for its lovely 7-inch display, minimalist design and solid performance.
Microsoft Elite Series 2 controller
The Xbox Elite Series 2 controller is $30 off right now, bringing it down to a new all-time low of $150. This was released last year and, on top of being compatible with the Xbox Series X, the Elite Series 2 controller has a new USB-C port, a rechargeable battery, interchangeable thumbsticks, programmable profiles, Bluetooth and more.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2
Amazon and Sennheiser have the excellent Momentum True Wireless 2 earbuds for $200, or $100 off their normal price. We gave these buds a score of 85 for their stellar audio quality, good ANC, smaller size and handy companion app.
Solo Stove Bonfire
Solo Stove’s Bonfire is $100 off right now, bringing it down to $250. This is one of the company’s best-selling fire pits and it’s made it into some of our outdoor-focused gift guides in the past. It’s a good device to get if you like gathering around a fire pit in the backyard but you don’t like the smoke or cleanup that typically comes with it.
GOG.com Anniversary Party sale
Through October 6, GOG.com has more than 120 games on sale, with some up to 90 percent off. Included this time around are Blood Omen, Elvira, Baldur’s Gate, Dishonored, Wolfenstein, Cuphead and more.
Comic-Con 2022 sweepstakes
Through December 8, you can enter to win four-day passes to San Diego Comic-Con 2022. Along with the passes, you’ll get access to a special preview night, reserved seating in Hall H, a personal concierge, a private tour of the Comic-Con Museum, dinner in Balboa Park and tickets to the “Night at the Comic-Con Museum” event. It’s free to enter, but funds from this sweepstakes will go to the San Diego Comic Convention.
New tech deals
iPad Pros (previous generations)
Woot is having a big sale on 2019 and 2020 iPad Pros, knocking some 12.9-inch models down to $769. Apple’s most powerful iPad hasn’t changed much in look over the past few years, but the 2021 models got a big upgrade in performance with the M1 processor. If you’re comfortable skipping that and a number of other, smaller updates, you could save a bunch and still get a powerful iPad. Just make sure to review Woot’s return policy before you buy.
75-inch Hisense U6G Series Quantum Dot 4K Android TV
This massive Hisense 4K smart TV is $255 off, bringing it down to $995. It has local dimming zones for better brightness, Quantum Dot technology for rich colors and it supports Dolby Vision and Atmos. It also has auto low latency mode for better gaming, and Android TV gives you access to a plethora of streaming services including Netflix and Prime Video.
Satechi 100W USB-C wall charger
Through October 7, Satechi has knocked 20 percent off of its 100W USB-C PD wall charger, bringing it down to $56, when you use the code GAN100 at checkout. This brick uses gallium nitride technology to prevent overheating and provide a faster, more efficient charge. Not only can it power up smartphones and tablets, but it can juice up a 16-inch MacBook Pro at full speed as well.
Roku Ultra LT
Walmart has the Roku Ultra LT for $49, or $30 off its normal price. This bundle includes the 4K set-top box, the enhanced voice remote and a pair of headphones that you can use for private listening.
NordVPN, one of our favorite VPNs, is running a sale on a two-year subscription. You can sign up and pay $99 for two years, plus you’ll get an extra three months free. We like NordVPN for its speed, its no-logs policy, the thousands of servers it has to choose from and that one account supports up to six connected devices.
