Prices tend to drop around each major US holiday, and with July 4th around the corner, were seeing that start to happen. And then theres Amazon Prime Day 2019, a shopping holiday that will begin on July 15th, though we expect to see a few early bird sales before then.
Well be keeping you in the know about any good deals coming up, but these are the best deals that weve seen this week.
Sonys Xperia 1 is now available for preorder. The price is $949.99, which is admittedly not cheap for a phone, but if you order before July 12th, youll receive a free set of Sonys 1000X M3 wireless noise-canceling headphones with your purchase. Those usually cost around $300 or more, which is a great incentive if you were tossing around the idea of preordering the Xperia 1. You can find this deal at Best Buy (add both the phone and headphones to your cart) and B&H Photo.
If you dont want the phone, theres a deal for just the 1000X M3 headphones below.
If thats a bit too much for your budget, Samsungs entire line of Galaxy S10 phones are considerably cheaper than usual at B&H Photo. The S10E, which usually starts at $749 for the 128GB model, is $549.99 after you clip the $100 coupon on the product page. The S10 and S10 Plus also offer a total of $200 off when you clip the coupon, bringing down the price for their respective 128GB configurations to $699 and $799.
These phones are unlocked and work with any US carrier, and they each come with a one-year warranty through Samsung.
Headphones and smart speakers
Beats Solo 3 on-ear wireless headphones are $129.99 at Daily Steals if you add the offer code VERGEBEATS at checkout. These are open-box models in new condition. Apple provides a 90-day warranty on the Beats, and if you encounter an issue after that (so long as youre within a year of purchase), Daily Steals will help you out.
Sonys 1000X M3 are the cheapest theyve ever been at Rakuten. Use the offer code PRO15P to get them in either silver or black for $237.96. These headphones usually retail for $349, and they cost $279 without the code. Note that youll have to make an account to get the sale price.
The Amazon Echo Dot (third generation) is back down to $24.99, its cheapest price. Weve seen it sell for this price plenty of times, and its likely to sink even lower for Prime Day, but its not a bad deal if you need one right now.
It might seem peculiar to highlight a deal on Apples older iPad Pro instead of the new iPad Air (two nearly identical tablets, inside and out), but there are a few reasons why it might be a better deal for some. The 64GB model, which is currently $474.99 at Walmart, has double the RAM count of the new iPad Air (4GB to 2GB). It also features a ProMotion variable refresh rate display (up to 120Hz) that will make game animations appear smoother, and scrolling around feel more responsive than a 60Hz display. The iPad Air does not have that advantage.
The Logi Crayon doesnt have pressure sensitivity like the Apple Pencil, but its a good stylus at $49.99 at Amazon (usually $69.99). Its rechargeable via Lightning and it has tilt support.
If you really want to kit out your iPad Pro, the
