The best deals this week are the Summer Sale of 2017 iPad Pro and Steam

Prices fall around every major American holiday and with July 4th around the corner we see that this is starting to happen. And then there is Amazon Prime Day 2019, a shopping holiday that starts on July 15, but we expect to have a few early bird sales before that time.


We'll keep you informed of any good deals that are coming, but these are the best deals we've seen this week.


Sony & # 39; s Xperia 1 is now available for preorder. The price is $ 949.99, which is not cheap for a phone, but if you order before July 12, you will receive a free set of Sony's 1000X M3 wireless noise canceling headphones with your purchase. They usually cost around $ 300 or more, which is a great incentive if you float around the idea of ​​ordering the Xperia 1 in advance. You can find this deal at Best Buy (add both the phone and headphones to your shopping basket) and B&H photo.

If you don't want the phone, there's a deal for just the 1000X M3 headphones below.

If that is a bit too much for your budget, Samsung & # 39; s entire line of Galaxy S10 phones is considerably cheaper than normal with B & H Photo. The S10E, which usually starts at $ 749 for the 128GB model, is $ 549.99 after you cut the $ 100 discount coupon on the product page. The S10 and S10 Plus also offer a total of $ 200 off when you cut the discount coupon, reducing the price for their respective 128GB configurations $ 699 and $ 799.

These phones are unlocked and work with any US airline, and they each get a one-year warranty through Samsung.

Headphones and smart speakers

Beats Solo 3 wireless headphones on ear are $ 129.99 at Daily Steals if you add the promotional code FORGET at checkout. These are open box models in new condition. Apple offers a 90-day warranty on the Beats and if you experience a problem afterwards (as long as you are within a year of purchase), Daily Steals will help you.

Sony & # 39; s 1000X M3 are the cheapest they have ever had at Rakuten. Use the offer code PRO15P to grab them in silver or black for $ 237.96. These headphones are usually sold for $ 349, and they cost $ 279 without the code. Please note that you must create an account to get the selling price.

The Amazon Echo Dot (third generation) is back to $ 24.99, the cheapest price. We have often seen it sell for this price, and it will probably be even lower for Prime Day, but it's not a bad deal if you need one now.


It may seem strange to mark a deal on Apple's older iPad Pro instead of the new iPad Air (two almost identical tablets, inside and out), but there are a few reasons why it might be better for some could be a deal. The 64GB model, currently $ 474.99 at Walmart, has double the RAM of the new iPad Air (4GB to 2GB). It also features a ProMotion variable refresh rate display (up to 120Hz) that makes game animations appear smoother and scrolling feels faster than a 60Hz screen. The iPad Air does not have that advantage.

The Logi Crayon has no pressure sensitivity like the Apple Pencil, but it's a good stylus for $ 49.99 at Amazon (usually $ 69.99). It is rechargeable via Lightning and has tilt support.

If you really want to equip your iPad Pro, then the Smart Keyboard is $ 79.50 at Amazon. It was originally sold for $ 159.99, but has been this lower price for quite some time.


If you like to listen to audio books, an annual subscription to Audible is currently $ 119, $ 30 discount on the usual costs for Prime members (paying month to month costs $ 180 after 12 months). With the subscription you receive call credit for one new spoken book of your choice per month and with each service month you can download two free Audible Original audio books. To keep up with those savings, Amazon offers an Echo Dot smart speaker for $ 1.

Our Amazon Prime Day 2019 coverage has already begun and will increase over the next few weeks. If you want to participate in the two-day sale of Amazon, you need a Prime membership. You can get it a one-month free trial at the momentand it will lead you through Prime Day. If you want to run it, it costs $ 12.99 a month, or $ 119 a year (about $ 10 a month).



Steam's summer sale is now happening up to and including 9 July. A few deals of interest include Rage 2 for $ 40.19 and Soulcalibur VI for $ 19.79. There are so many games for sale, so you have to check your wish list to see which discount you get.

If you buy Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One games from Target, you do that save 30 percent on selected titles if you choose to pick up your online order at the store. This deal brings for example Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, a game from $ 59.99 to $ 38.10. Games like The section 2, Team Sonic Racing, Kingdom Hearts III, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and more are also included in the sale.
