Staples is hosting some great back-to-school deals this week, especially if tech is on your checklist. The AirPods Pro are $179 (visible on the third page of the ad) and are only available in-store at this price. Originally $249, these have come down in price, but it’s rare that they sell for under $189. It’s worth noting that Staples also offers Apple’s HomePod Mini for $89, which binds for the lowest price to date. Unlike the AirPods Pro, Staples offers this miniature smart speaker in store or online.
As noted by slick deals, the second-generation Apple Pencil that is compatible with iPads with a USB-C port costs $99 at Best Buy and Amazon (Amazon delivery currently postponed to August 12). This is $30 less than the usual price, and students who want to take notes during class should jump on this deal. Compared to the first-generation Apple Pencil that charges inconveniently through an iPad’s Lightning port, it attaches magnetically to the side of your iPad for charging.
Brydge kicked off the back-to-school sale today, running through Sunday, September 5. It offers deals on many of its accessories, including screen protectors, cases, Bluetooth keyboard cases, and USB-C hubs. You can shop on Brydge or Amazon’s site for the deals. These are the most attractive offers so far:
Anker is offering a solid deal on its 20W Nano USB-C Wall Charger with a 6-foot Lightning to USB-C cable. You can get the two together for $24, dropped from $30. Considering that Apple’s equally powerful 20W charger only costs $19 and doesn’t include a fast charging cable, this bundle stands out as a great deal.
