There’s a veritable loot of deals happening today, and I’m excited to share some of them with you. The most impressive (and unexpected) deal is on Apple’s 2021 iPad Mini, which received a design overhaul similar to the iPad Air. Normally $499.99 for the 64GB Wi-Fi version, you can get it today for just $399.99 at Amazon† Best Buyand Goal† That beats the best ever price by nearly $50. Since it’s such an aggressive deal out of the blue, some color options may sell out quickly. And if you’re interested in more storage, the 256GB configuration is also $100 off and costs $549.99 instead of $649.99.
The 2021 iPad Mini has an 8.3-inch display and is powered by the A15 Bionic chipset. One of the big advantages it has over the more affordable base iPad is its USB-C charging port, which allows wider compatibility with accessories. The second-generation Apple Pencil can be clicked on its side to charge. Read our review.

Speaking of Switch games, Ring Fit Adventure also sees a return to the lowest price. Normally $79.99 (and at some point extremely hard to find at regular price earlier in the pandemic), it’s now $54.99 at walmart† Goal† Best Buyand Amazon† This game features a pilates ring and with its single player campaign you can stretch, do yoga poses, do squats and more to defeat enemies. It’s a surprisingly fun (and physically engaging) experience. The set includes a leg strap, which you can also use with Nintendo Switch Sports playing football.
The good deals don’t end just yet. Amazon† walmartand Best Buy offer a great price on the 41mm Apple Watch Series 7 – Apple’s latest smartwatch. Normally $399, it’s back to its lowest price yet at $329. We’ve seen this price a few times, but a $70 discount on the latest Apple product is nothing to sneeze at. This price is valid on several colorways, including watches with blue, green, black, red or white straps. Read our review.
If you have a bigger wrist or just want a bigger screen, the 45mm model isn’t much more expensive. There is also a $70 deal with this one, dropping the price to $359.
