Black Friday and Cyber Monday might still be a few weeks away but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any top-notch tech and electronic sales available. This week you’ll be able to save $200 on a 65-inch Sony HD television, grab an Apple tablet for its Fall Prime Day price, snag the Samsung Galaxy S23+ for its lowest price of the month, and much more.
Samsung Galaxy S23+
$784.99 $859.99 Save $75
The Samsung S23+ is top-notch Android phone with awesome specs, making it perfect for most people.
If it’s time to trade in your old Android phone for a new one or if you want to switch from iPhone to Android, considering buying the Samsung Galaxy S23+ and save yourself a decent chunk of change in the process. While it may not be the Samsung Galaxy 23 Ultra, there’s still a lot to love about this smartphone.
With 256GB of storage space, you’ll have plenty of room on this phone for apps, photos, videos, and games galore. It’s a good thing, too, since the 50MP high-resolution camera is top-notch. Whether you’re taking selfies with the updated 2MP selfie camera, snapping photos in near-darkness with Night Mode, or taking advantage of its other various camera settings— such as Multi-Exposure and Director’s View— your pictures will come out clear and crisp, even in environments with poor lighting.
The phone’s battery life is nothing to sneeze at, either. The 4700mAh battery is nice and long-lasting; we found it has the potential to last around a day and a half, even with regular use. You’ll be able to stream your favorite shows and videos on the 6.6-inch display screen for longer stretches of time without interruption. And when the time does come to recharge the Samsung Galaxy S23+, it supports 45W super-fasting charging (with the proper, sold separately wall charger), so you won’t have to wait much more than an hour for your new smartphone to be fully juiced and back in action.

Apple iPad (9th generation)
$249 $329 Save $80
This may be Apple’s entry-level tablet but it still provides the great iPad experience you’ve come to expect, and at its Fall Prime Day sale price to boot.
If you don’t already own a tablet or are looking to upgrade to a newer model, this week is a great time to invest in one at a substantial discount. The Apple iPad (9th Generation) is an especially great option if you already own other Apple devices, such as a MacBook or iPhone.
The second most recent generation of iPads and compatible with the first generation Apple Pencil (sold separately), it’s got just about every feature you could want or need in a tablet. The 10.2-inch Retina display screen offers beautiful, crisp visuals and bright colors with plenty of viewing space, be it for watching videos, reading your favorite e-books, or simply browsing the web. The incredibly efficient A13 Bionic chip also helps to provide greater power for taking notes, drawing, or playing games without draining more than its share of battery life in the process.
This iPad is also excellent for snapping photos, thanks to the extra wide 12MP front camera and wide 8MP back camera, as well as video chatting thanks to the Center Stage feature; when using a video app like FaceTime, Center Stage keeps you centered in the frame at all times, even if you’re moving around as you’re talking. It comes with a number of useful apps already built-in, including Safari, Messages, Scribble, and Keynote, as well as the ability to sync your new Apple iPad (9th Gen) with your other Apple devices, unlock it with Touch ID, and even make purchases with Apple Pay directly on the iPad.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen)
$199 $249 Save $50
If you use Apple electronics, there’s no better true wireless earbuds for you than the AirPods Pro.
Wireless earbuds are the ideal way to listen to music and podcasts without limiting your freedom of movement. And they’re far less bulky than over-ear headphones to boot. If you’re looking for a new set to pair specifically with your Apple devices, the Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Generation) offer a notable upgrade from the previous generation of Apple earbuds. And they’re currently available for only $10 more than their lowest-ever price.
Our favorite set of earbuds for Apple users, these AirPods are powered by Apple’s H2 chip, providing each bud with peak audio performance and lower distortion. They also boast superior 3D spatial sound, more effective noise-canceling properties, and a longer-lasting battery life, so you won’t have to charge them as often. The pods connect near-seamlessly to your Apple devices and can be used not just to listen to music podcasts but to take calls as well.
Another notable addition to these AirPods is that they come with four silicone tips in four different sizes (extra small, small, medium, and large), providing you with the option to customize the tips to better and more comfortably fit in your ears. And you’re able to adjust the AirPods’ volume simply by swiping the stem.
The Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) also allow you to quickly share their audio with another set of AirPods that are linked to another Apple device; for instance, you can pair this set with your iPhone and another pair to your iPad and share whatever music or podcast you’re listening to between the two via these AirPods.
Sony SRS-XB100 Portable Speaker
$48 $59.99 Save $11.99
Sony’s Bluetooth speakers are known for being highly effective yet large and bulky. If you’re after something more portable that you can bring along to an outdoor event or party, the Sony SRS-XB100 Portable Speaker is a great way to get all the benefits of a Sony speaker without the extra heft or size.
Don’t let its compact, lightweight size fool you— this little speaker is small but mighty due to being equipped with a Sound Diffusion Processor that helps extend the reach of its sound, whether you’re listening to music or making a conference call. And it’s an excellent speaker for calls, both personal and professional, thanks to its hands-free calling and echo-cancelling microphone, which allows two people to speak at the same time without issue.
It’s also a great speaker for listening to music, boasting surprisingly deep bass for its small size, and you have nothing to fear if you want to use it at the beach or poolside; it’s IP67 rated as both dustproof and waterproof, and it even has a built-in strap for greater portability. To round it all off, the Sony SRS-XB100 Portable Speaker can even pair with a second speaker for a more stereo-like experience and last up to 16 hours on a single charge.
If none of the deals listed above scratched your itch, there are still plenty of other great sales available this week in the tech and electronics sector. You’ll be able to snag a 75-inch LG Smart TV for its lowest price yet, save $100 on a new Garmin fitness smartwatch, snag a pair of JBL headphones for half off, and much more.
