This deal is a significant discount and matches the second lowest price we’ve seen for a pair of these speakers. Typically these deals last for some time but it’s possible we’ll see them drop lower during the holiday season. If you’ve been thinking about upgrading your sound system at home now, this is a good price on a great option.
Matching the lowest price we’ve seen, our top portable Bluetooth speaker pick, the UE Wonderboom 2, is down to $50. We don’t see deals like this often—the last time we saw this pick for $50 was in February—so be sure to snag it if you’re looking for a durable and reliable Bluetooth speaker with a natural sound.
Back down to $15, this deal is another great chance to save on the Logitech G203 Lightsync, our budget gaming mouse pick. It’s smaller than our other picks and doesn’t have as many buttons, but it does have an accurate sensor, ample customization options, and satisfying buttons—especially for this low price. This deal matches the previous low but shipping is delayed.
Down to a new low, this is a great time to pick up our runner-up pick for best microSD card. While the Samsung Evo Select’s random writeup speeds aren’t as good as our top pick, its sequential speeds are great, so it’s still a good alternative for media storage and recording.
This skillet is a proven workhorse of a fry pan. Offering durable construction and superior heat conduction, the All-Clad D3 Stainless 12″ Fry Pan with Lid was an easy top pick. This recurring deals takes it down to $100 from a street price we’re lowering to $120—not quite the lowest we’ve seen this pan from All-Clad’s D3 series drop, but it’s been a couple years since we’ve seen anything better. Although it’s on the pricier end (even on sale), we’re confident in its buy-it-for-life quality.

Our runner-up electric toothbrush pick, the Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 4100, is back down to $30 matching the lowest price we’ve seen this year.

The Amazon Echo Show 8 can be used for video calls with family, recipe preparation or even as a baby monitor. Matching what we saw for Prime Day, this is a great price for this versatile smart-device.

It includes a 1536 x 1536 video resolution, pre-recorded messages, a siren, and live video calls to your smartphone whenever the button is pressed. Plus, it was the only model that could successfully distinguish between people, animals, vehicles, and packages.

The Coway AP-1512HH Mighty is the top pick in our guide to the best air purifier, not only does it work great but it’s the cheapest option to own in our long-term testing.

Ozeri Pronto Digital Multifunction Kitchen and Food Scale
Deal price: $7; street price: $15
Read our review of the best kitchen scale.
Available for $7 in silver on black when you clip the on-page coupon, this deal is the lowest we’ve seen our budget kitchen scale. Similar to our top pick in looks and feel, the Ozeri Pronto Digital Multifunction Kitchen and Food Scale was even slightly more accurate during testing, particularly with heavier weights. However, it was a little slower when it came to reading smaller weights and it automatically shuts off after only two minutes. Still, if you’re looking for an affordable and attractive scale for your kitchen, this discount is a great chance to save.
Update: Now down an additional $1, the lowest markdown we’ve seen for this 2 packs of 2 deal. A deal on a two-pack of Chuckit Ultra Balls is back and it’s perfect for you fetch-obsessed pup. The pack is down to $5, but there’s an order minimum of two per purchase bringing the total to $10 for four balls. If your dog loves to play but their toys tend to get worn down easily, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to have some of these stocked up. The medium has the same bounce and size as a tennis ball, but it’s much tougher so it can withstand a good amount of chomping and chewing. We saw this same deal recently and noted there was a slight increase in street price. Still, it’s a decent discount and well worth it for your pooch.

Available in charcoal black, marine blue, and canary yellow.
Down to $335 from $385, our smaller iPad pick is down to a new low price. We think the iPad is one of the best tablets out there, and we recommend the Apple iPad mini (5th generation, 64 GB) in both our tablet guide as well as our guide to the best tablets for kids (the smaller and lighter frame might be a better fit for little hands). The mini has an A12 processor (the same as the 8th generation iPad) and it also supports the Apple pencil too.
Down to the lowest price we’ve ever seen, this is a nice drop on our runner-up pick for best indoor security cam. This cam records 24/7, has a higher picture quality than most, links to other smart-home devices, and delivers alerts reliably with less false alarms, but for a price: you’ll need the Nest Aware monthly subscription to view recordings and create activity zones alerts.
If your family has a tablet and you want it to be more than a game-playing and video-watching device, or if you’re trying to find apps for your smartphone that will do more than keep your kids occupied in a pinch, we have some great suggestions. The Osmo system uses physical game pieces in conjunction with the device’s screen, making scripting and coding tangible and accessible for pre-readers. It’s down to a new low price of $56 from $75.
