Both autumn and the start of school are just around the corner, which means plenty of ongoing back-to-school sales are still going strong. Naturally, these deals extend to plenty of devices and tech accessories that are useful for students, teachers, and parents of students alike. Don’t miss out on this chance for reduced prices on the Amazon Kindle Scribe, Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+, JBL headphones, and much, much more.
Amazon Kindle Scribe
$279.99 $339.99 Save $60
The Amazon Kindle Scribe is much more than just a standard eReader, so don’t miss out on this chance to save big on a Kindle you can draw and write on directly.
Kindles are the most popular eReaders on the market today, and the Amazon Kindle Scribe offers more versatility than most of its cousins. If you prefer to take notes by hand, want to draw pictures to accompany your notes, or simply enjoy doodling or sketching, this particular Kindle will be right up your alley.
Most notable about this Kindle is that it comes with a basic pen that allows you to add handwritten notes to your eBooks and import PDFs via the Kindle app or desktop web browser and hand write or hand draw on them as desired. You can even send yourself Word documents directly, provided you have a Microsoft 365 subscription.
This handy feature is great for taking notes in class, keeping a personal journal for gardening or cooking, making grocery lists, and other similar functions. You can even resize, move, and copy/paste your notes. And as a bonus, the basic pen never requires charging in order to work.
The pen and ability to hand draw/write on the surface isn’t the only reason to invest in the Amazon Kindle Scribe, either. The large, crisp screen boasts a 300 PPI high-resolution display and will automatically adjust its brightness to suit the light levels of your environment. The 10.2-inch screen is also glare-free, so you can relax outside with an eBook even when the sun is at its peak.

A lot of people think of phones and televisions when they think of Samsung, but they’re a reliable choice for most electronics, tablets included. So if you’re in the market for a new tablet, be sure to give the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+ a look.
An even better version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 (already our favorite Android-operated tablet), this tablet boasts a 12.4-inch display screen with brilliant, vivid colors whether you’re using it to surf the web, play your favorite game, or watch a movie.
It also offers fast charging and will last for hours and hours on a single charge—though the exact amount of time will vary depending on what you’re using it for and the apps you run. And like many modern devices, this tablet has a fingerprint scanner, so it can be unlocked by a single touch, but only by you.
A new and improved S pen comes included with your purchase of this tablet, allowing you to scroll, write, or draw on the tablet with ease. This handy stylus, which provides 9ms of pen latency, also slots into the back of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+ for charging and safekeeping, so it’ll always be close at hand.
JBL Tune 230NC True Wireless Earbuds
$49.95 $99.95 Save $50
The JBL Tune 230NC true wireless earbuds feature bass boost, water resistance, and up to 40 hours of battery life with the included charging case. Get them for half off right now.
Headphones are an indispensable part of modern life, allowing you to enjoy your favorite music and podcasts without disturbing those around you. If you want a noise-canceling pair that isn’t bulky, full-sized, over-ear headphones, these JBL Tune 230NC TWS Headphones might be just up your alley.
Even though they’re wireless earbuds rather than more classic headphones, their Active Noise-Canceling technology helps to reduce ambient noise so that you can focus when listening to music while studying or working.
Should you ever want or need to tune into the outside world, the Ambient Aware feature allows you to do so, while the TalkThru function lets you pause your music to talk to someone else, both without taking out your headphones.
These headphones also happen to be water-resistant and sweatproof, so you won’t need to worry about them becoming damaged or losing efficiency during an intense workout or if you get caught in a sudden rainfall. Like any good earbuds, they come with a case/charger that gives them juice whenever they’re placed inside.
That said, the JBL Tune 230NC TWS Headphones should last you about eight hours on a single charge. And should you ever forget to charge them and are in a pinch, a mere 10-minute charge will provide these earbuds with two hours of playtime.
Samsung Galaxy A54 5G
$349.99 $449.99 Save $100
Samsung’s latest budget phone has a large 6.4-inch screen, 5G support, and several years of promised OS and security upgrades. Get the Galaxy A54 for $100 off.
Android phones, like most smartphones, are known to be quite pricey, but that doesn’t mean you have to shell out $700 or $800 for one. The Samsung Galaxy A54, for instance, is one of the best less expensive but still effective Android smartphones on the market. And this week, you’re able to get your hands on it for $100 less than its usual price tag.
As its name suggests, this smartphone is equipped with 5G connectivity, certified to function seamlessly on the 5G networks of all major carriers. With its 5,000mAh battery, it should last you a full day of intensive use without needing to be charged. But should you need it to be powered up in a pinch, it boasts rapid 25W wired charging support, so you won’t have to wait long for your new phone to be ready to go again.
Despite its lower price tag, this Android phone also boasts a generous and visually pleasing 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with a peak brightness of up to 1,000 nits, ensuring it has clear visibility in even bright, sunny environments. It comes equipped with Android 13 and One UI 5.1 right out of the box, improving the overall animations and stability of the phone.
To round it all off, the Samsung Galaxy A54 has an Exynos 1380 SoC processor, which makes it well-equipped for multitasking and provides more responsive performance.
Anker MacBook Pro Charger
$26.59 $35.99 Save $9.4
This high-power charger can power just about any USB-C device at the highest supported speeds, including Galaxy phones, MacBooks, and iPhones. Plus, it’s way more affordable than buying a replacement or extra from Apple.
The odds are good that you already have at least one USB-C charger lying around your home somewhere, but it never hurts to have a spare on hand. If you have a MacBook at home, the Anker MacBook Pro Charger is on sale this week.
Not only will you receive the charger itself but a 5-foot (1.5-meter) USB-C cable as well, in order to fit the wall charger’s single USB Type-C port. It’s capable of charging at up to 100W, meaning that you can fully charge your MacBook Pro in about an hour and 20 minutes.
That said, this charger isn’t only suitable for MacBook Pros. It’ll charge just about any device that’s USB-C compatible, including (but not limited to) iPad Pros, Samsung Galaxy S22, iPhone 14s, and more.
The Anker MacBook Pro Charger is also an excellent option for travel, as the charger is much more compact than most MacBook chargers; it won’t block the outlet below when plugged in or take up as much room in your computer bag. It also is equipped with ActiveShield safety technology for temperature monitoring when in use, and Anker provides both an 18-month warranty and access to free customer service with your purchase.
Even if you’re not a student or no one in your household is returning to school soon, that doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of back-to-school sales or that the only sales this week are on school-adjacent devices and tech accessories. You’ll still be able to save big on all kinds of handy technology, from close to half off the Roborock S7 Robot Vacuum and Mop, Ring Video Doorbell, TP-Link Wi-Fi Extender, and much more.
