  • Samsung Galaxy S21 256 GB for $700 ($150 off): With a top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chip and an excellent 120-Hz display, Samsung’s S21 series Android phones are hard to beat. The 256-GB model here is the same price as the 128-GB version, so be sure to pick that one up for more on-device storage.
  • Moto G Power 2021 for $230 ($20 off): It’s a small deal, but it makes an already affordable phone even more enticing. The latest from Motorola doesn’t have the best cameras, but you get good performance and fantastic three-day battery life.
  • Apple iPad Air for $699 ($50 off): This is a good deal on our favorite iPad. The Air’s performance is great, thanks to the A14 Bionic chip (also in the iPhone 12), and the 10.9-inch screen, with its slim edges, strikes a good balance between portable and usable. It pairs well with the Magic Keyboard, also on sale (see below). B&H also has the Air on sale.
  • Apple Magic Keyboard for $200 ($100 off): The Magic Keyboard is one of the better iPad case and keyboard options. It feels great to type on, the trackpad integrates seamlessly into iPadOS, and it even has a USB-C port. Our only complaint is that it’s a bit bulky and expensive. This deal addresses the latter.
  • Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro True Wireless Earbuds for $100 ($30 off): Clip the on-page coupon to see the discount at checkout. These earbuds offer active noise cancellation and seven hours of run time (26 hours with charging case).
