Memorial Day offers are a difficult act to pursue and we actually saw sales volume slow down a little this week. Yet there are plenty of places to save on tech, video games, and more. We’ve put the ones below and we’ll be back with more sales next week.
If you’ve been thinking about buying a smart display but don’t need an array of additional features, such as YouTube help or a built-in camera, the little Lenovo Smart Clock showed above might be a good choice.
At Best Buy, the JBL Link soundbar which has built-in Chromecast and Android TV apps with 4K compatibility are significantly reduced. It launched for $400 in late 2019, and now it’s $200 off 50 percent of that amount. Additionally, with the buy, it comes with a portable subwoofer (normally costing $300 itself).
A soundbar that can serve as a listening tool sounds too amazing to be real and my colleague Jon Porter finds in his analysis that there are more than a few flaws in the execution of JBL. This does have certain special features, though, such as being able to boost or lower the volume of HDMI inputs using your speech. So for those who want an all-in-one solution that doesn’t cost much, this might be a perfect choice at half the price.
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10 is $700 at the Microsoft Website, with 256 GB of storage. This is $50 cheaper than the price of Amazon and if you have been hoping for a discount on this edition, it’s a perfect one. The Galaxy Note 10 Plus with 256 GB of storage is $750, and the cheaper Note 10 gives you a lot that’s missing: a larger screen, a headphone socket, and microSD support.
Earlier this week GOG.com kicked off its summer sales, slashing prices on many DRM-free PC games and offering deals on new and old titles. On celebrated books, such as Metro Exodus for $20 (50 percent off) and Prey: Downloadable Deluxe Edition for $12 there are major discounts. Divinity: Original Sin 2 — Remastered Version is $22.50 for the app version on Windows 10 or macOS, which is a ton of money online.
Apple is now selling the iPhone XR at its redeveloped stores. It’s $500 for the 64 GB, which is $100 less than its actual cost, and $250 off its original retail price. Apple replaces this and other refurbished iPhones’ batteries and exterior shells and it also comes with a one-year warranty. It is worth noting that the current iPhone SE is $100 cheaper since the XR has a significantly bigger monitor and support for Face ID.
Best Buy sells the Smart Clock for $40, and that 50 percent discount is the highest deal we’ve ever seen. It works with Spotify and other music streaming apps, in addition to having Google Assistant voice support and being able to show off your Google Photos catalog.
