The spooky season may be coming to an end soon, but deals season is still in full swing. First, you can buy the latest version of the Amazon Echo smart speaker for just $49.99 Bee Amazon, Best Buyor Target. This $50 discount is the lowest price for Amazon’s fourth-generation smart speaker. Though it came out in 2020 and the smaller Echo Dot just got a fifth-generation release, the unwieldy Echo just got a nifty new feature added via a firmware update. Now if you have an Eero mesh Wi-Fi router, you can use the fourth-generation Echo to expand its network.
But the Echo does a lot more than extend a Wi-Fi network, as it actually has some pretty formidable sound output for a small speaker. It can fill most rooms with music, and it even has good bass, if only slightly over-processed. In addition, it is one of the most complete (Wink) smart home speakers in Amazon’s selection, as it has a built-in hub for connecting to other devices such as Zigbee-powered smart bulbs.

If you’re looking for a new phone from Google but don’t want to spend Pixel 7 money, the excellent value-for-money Pixel 6A retails for just $299 Bee Amazon, Best Buyand Target. That’s $150 off the regular price of $449, which is kind of absurd when you consider how good this phone is even at full price. The Pixel 6A uses the same Tensor CPU as the Pixel 6-generation phones and combines that with a much more modest 6.1-inch OLED display. Sure, it doesn’t have a high refresh rate screen or the latest cameras with 50-megapixel sensors, but it’s fast, it has some AI-powered smarts like Google’s excellent Recorder app, and it’s cheap. The 6A is already running on Android 13 and it is promised to get software updates through July 2025 and security updates through July 2027. All that for $299? That’s hard to pass up.

I’m just going to say it: the first-generation Apple Pencil has to die and disappear. Although, alas, it is here to stay and tease us for the time being. But luckily, all the better Second-generation Apple Pencil is on sale for the lowest price of $89 Bee Amazon, walmartand Best Buy. This $40 discount is as good as it gets for Apple’s best writing and drawing experience. If you own it a compatible iPad and like to draw or take handwritten notes, you definitely want to land this deal.
A big part of what makes this version of the Apple Pencil so great is how it charges. You just slap it on the designated side of your iPad (it attaches with magnets) and it starts charging immediately. It also has improved sensitivity and pressure levels over the first-generation model, and supports some handy gesture shortcuts when you tap the side. Really, its main downside is price, and today’s deal certainly helps with that.
The plush and comfortable Bose QuietComfort 45 noise canceling headphones are on sale for $249 Bee Amazon and Best Buy and $249.99 at Target. This $80 discount is just $20 away from the lowest ever price we saw during the recent Amazon Prime Early Access Sale, and judging by Best Buy’s countdown timer, they’re only available at this price today.
The latest addition to Bose’s line of excellent over-the-ear headphones, the QC45 has exceptional noise cancellation that’s perfect for traveling on an airplane or isolating yourself from a noisy office when it’s head-down work time. They also have great battery life and a handy transparency mode for when you need to be aware of your surroundings. While not a radical departure from the previous-generation QC35 II, they offer improvements to all the things Bose does well with this line – earning them a prominent place in our headphone buying guide.
