Google’s Pixel 6A is only a week old, but it already had some notable promotions before it came out. Now you can use the Pixel 6A for an outright $50 discount at Amazonbeat the price of the wise and charcoal colors up to $399 – no included gift card or earbuds to worry about. This is a reasonably priced phone, now even better priced for a limited time. Make sure to click the coupon on the page to get the full discount from Amazon so each color goes to $399 at checkout and don’t be fooled by third-party sellers who may show up with a similar deal without the coupon.

While the Pixel 6A is slightly different from previous A-series phones from Google, it’s an exceptional mid-range option that puts speed and performance at the forefront. It uses the same Google Tensor CPU as the more expensive Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro flagships, with a claim of five years of security updates. Where Google cut things back has been with premium features like wireless charging, water resistance and the megapixel count of the main camera – although the smaller 6.1-inch OLED could be a boon for anyone wanting a (somewhat) one-handed phone.

If you’re looking to upgrade your streaming device and you already live in Apple’s walled garden, consider the latest Apple TV 4K, currently on sale with 32GB of storage for $119.99 (about $59 off) at Amazon and Best Buy. Today’s deal is just $10 more than the low we saw on Prime Day — and it’s one we don’t see often.

The Apple TV 4K supports (as you might expect) 4K resolution and HDR. In addition to a fast processor that should keep it running for years, it can also be used as a mini-game console with an Apple Arcade subscription. It may be more expensive than the typical streaming dongles from Roku and Amazon, but it’s also much more future-proof, with support for HDMI 2.1, Wi-Fi 6 and even the Thread standard.

Amazon’s latest Echo Show 10 is on sale at Woot for $179.99, which is the best price yet. The 10.1-inch smart display usually retails for $249.99, so this is a hefty $70 off the third-generation model. While many Echo devices are very similar, the Echo Show 10 is very unique thanks to its motorized base. It physically turns the screen towards you so you can see it all the time. That might sound a little scary at first, but the camera has a privacy shutter for when you don’t need it. If you’ve ever tried video calling someone while trying to multitask, you might appreciate how excellent the Show 10 is for video calling.

Since the HomePod Mini is the only smart speaker left in Apple’s stable, it does not often see discounts. And if you want to use Siri on a speaker or add some wireless sound to your Apple TV, the Mini is your only choice.

Now, though, we’re seeing some refreshing discounts on at least some of the fun colors. B&H Photo sells the colorful smart speaker in both blue and yellow for $89.95 and $89.99 respectively. I know $10 off doesn’t sound like much, but it’s the kind of price you normally have to be a Costco member to get – though, if you to be a Costco member, it is currently $79.99 plus $2.99 ​​shipping there. If you stock a few for different rooms in your house so you can check the weather or the news wherever you are, that modest $10 discount goes much further. Read our review.
