Home theater deals
This Roku streaming stick has consistently been one of our favorites, and now it’s cheaper than ever. It comes with the Roku Voice Remote, so you can find your shows without using the annoying on-screen keyboard, and the latest version (released in 2021) supports Dolby Vision HDR.
Sony makes some of the best-looking OLED TVs on the market, and this screen is excellent. At 48 inches, it’s not one of the largest, but it’s still good for medium-sized living spaces. Its central stand makes it relatively easy to set up; supports HDR 10 and Dolby Vision types of HDR; and has a refresh rate of 120 Hz which is convenient for gamers.
We’re big fans of TCL’s 5- and 6-series TVs. While the 4-Series used to be a bit too powerful to merit our recommendations, newer models have started to inherit the specs we loved from previous generations. This 43-inch model is a great budget model if you need a smaller TV for, say, a guest room.
Offers for home and kitchen
The KitchenAid Pro 5 Stand Mixer needs no introduction. However, this is one of the most versatile tools you can have in your kitchen. Its price tends to be pretty sticky, so when we see it drop this much, we’ll take notice.
The original Garmin Instinct has been outdone by some newer models, but at a discount it’s still a good buy if you’re looking for a GPS smartwatch that’s packed with an array of sensors, mapping capabilities, and a rugged case.
The Dyson V11 (8/10, WIRED recommends) exists in a strange place. Although WIRED reviewer Adrienne So called it a “dream vacuum,” it’s been discontinued in favor of newer options like the V15. That’s why it’s rare to find this vacuum on sale, and usually the V11 and V15 are close enough in price that you might pay a little extra to get the V15. But with this discount, the older model might be worth it.
This third generation Nest Learning Thermostat is a slightly older model, but it has held up surprisingly well and we love it. It lets you control your heating and air conditioning from your phone and easily set schedules (which it can try to learn based on how you use it). It even reminds you when you need to change filters.
Deals on headphones and cameras
In our opinion, the Apple AirPods Pro (8/10, WIRED recommends) are the best headphones for the iPhone. That makes this a great pair of headphones that offer great sound, superior active noise cancellation, and instant pairing with iOS devices.
The Studio3 (owned by Apple) Beats wireless headphones (8/10, WIRED recommends) have been iconic for several years now, and for good reason. They have excellent noise cancellation, solid wireless range and at least 20 hours of battery life per charge.
The Alpha a7 IV (9/10, WIRED recommends) is our top camera pick for most people. The Alpha a7 III may be a generation behind that choice, but it still performs the same (as long as you don’t need the upgraded autofocus system), and it’s significantly cheaper than the a7 IV.
