Fire HD 10

Best Buy, Target, Amazon

A bunch of Fire HD tablets are discounted, but this is our favorite one. It’s the largest and fastest, and it has a nice bright screen and 3 gigabytes of RAM. The 64-gigabyte version is also discounted to $115 ($75 off). Our guide will help you pick which Fire tablet is for you, but the budget Fire HD 8 is discounted to $45 ($45 off) too. The 10 Plus is $105 ($75 off), and it gets more RAM than the HD 10 and supports wireless charging. Meanwhile, the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition is $70 ($70 off), and it’s our favorite tablet for kids. The larger 10 Kids Pro is $120 ($80 off) and it’s better suited for older children.

Amazon ($430), Best Buy

This is the lowest price we’ve tracked yet for this tablet. Android on these larger slates may play second fiddle to iPads more often than not, but if you’re dedicated to the platform, this is a great option we’re currently testing. It comes with 128 GB of storage, a 12.4-inch LCD display, and it even includes an S Pen that sticks to the body via magnets. That’s handy for note-taking or drawing, and most tablets usually sell a stylus separately.

The basic 10th generation Kindle (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is our favorite e-book reader for most people. It’s inexpensive—especially with this discount—lightweight, and has a spacious 6-inch E Ink screen. 

Book lovers willing to push the boat out should go for this frivolously awesome ebook reader (it’s an extra $20 to ditch the ads). The Oasis is a joy to use, has a premium durable aluminum body, physical buttons to turn the page, and adjustable warm lighting.

This is the 2020 iPad Pro model with 256 gigabytes of storage. You can get the 2021 iPad Pro for $100 more, but that one starts with 128 GB. You’re not missing too much from the newer model, so this is still a solid deal if you need extra space. If you need more storage, the 512-gigabyte 4th-gen iPad Pro is discounted to $1,100 ($200 off) and the 1-terabyte version is $1,300 ($200 off).

If you prefer a curved gaming monitor, this one supports both Nvidia G-Sync and AMD’s FreeSync, which means you’ll get smooth gameplay with whatever graphics card powers your PC. $500 is not the cheapest, but it’s a little easier to stomach than its normal price.

This is typically what the 64-gigabyte version costs, so you can get double the storage for the same price. We like other Surfaces more, but the Go is great for, as you might have guessed by the name, taking with you wherever you go because it’s light and small. But the screen resolution is where you’ll notice the budget—text can look a little pixelated.

Surface Laptop 4

Best Buy, Microsoft

This is a good deal on the AMD version of Microsoft’s Surface Laptop 4 (7/10, WIRED Recommends). It’s a solid, well-built laptop, with a nice 3:2-ratio screen that gives extra room for reading and working on documents. Other, more powerful, more expensive AMD configurations are also on sale. Have a look at our Surface buying guide for some other options.

Are you the one person left on earth that doesn’t have one of these? Here’s your chance to change that for a mere 10 bucks. This mouse won’t win any prizes, but it gets the job done. In fact, I’m using it right now and have been for years because it’s cheap and it works—what more do you want from a mouse?

Need access to Microsoft’s classic Office suite? This is a one-time download and it doesn’t require any kind of subscription. It includes Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. The downside is it will only work on one device at a time, and with only one user. There’s no cloud storage.

Best Buy, Amazon, Walmart ($25)

We praised the nonlinear narrative and stellar voice acting in our Deathloop review, a stealth shooter that challenges you to replay the same day over and over in pursuit of eight targets. Conceptually ambitious, complex, and clever this fast-paced adventure is lots of fun.

Best Buy, Target, Amazon

This bittersweet co-op game features an unhappy child caught in the middle of her parent’s divorce. You play as the parents, shrunk down, and battling through a series of puzzles that depend on you working together to succeed.

Whether you have a cramped desktop or you want a keyboard that’s easy to sling in a bag and take with you, the Razer Huntsman Mini is our favorite 60 percent keyboard. There’s no number pad or arrow keys, but it’s a responsive board with RGB lighting.

Amazon (Sold Out), Best Buy (Sold Out), GameStop (Sold Out)

This deal is going in and out of stock, be sure to check for yourself.

Normally the original Nintendo Switch is $300 on its own, but this bundle comes with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe–one of the better Mario Kart games in years–plus three months of the Nintendo Switch Online service included for free. The latter gives you access to a small library of classic NES and SNES games, so you’ll have plenty to play for the price of the console alone.
