If you’re looking to upgrade your smartphone, you’re in luck. Both Best Buy and Amazon have discounted the entire Samsung Galaxy S22 lineup, with some models knocked off as much as $200 off their original price. This offer applies to all unlocked models of Samsung’s latest smartphone, regardless of configuration. This matches or exceeds the best prices we’ve seen for the S22 line, and we consider this an excellent deal for what we consider the basic Android phones to buy. Read our reviews of the S22 and S22 Plus†
The 128GB model starts with the standard S22 model and is currently available from Amazon and Best Buy for $699.99, as opposed to the usual retail price of $799.99. The base model of this 6.1-inch phone has a 1080 x 2340 display with an adaptive refresh rate of up to 120 Hz. Equipped with an eight-core CPU, the S22 offers excellent performance despite its mediocre battery life. The S22 also features a 50MP wide-angle camera in addition to a 10MP front-facing lens.
Next up is the slightly larger S22 Plus, which typically costs $999.99 in its 128GB configuration, but costs $799.99 on Amazon and Best Buy. While the processor and cameras are unchanged, the Plus builds on the standard S22 with a larger 6.6-inch 1080 x 2340 display and a larger battery. These are both welcome additions to an already excellent phone, even if the battery still struggled to get through the day on a single charge.
Finally, the largest member of the S22 family, the 128GB S22 Ultra, is discounted to $999.99 from its usual price of $1,199.99 at Amazon and Best Buy. This beast of a phone has a 6.8-inch 1440 x 3088 display, an even bigger battery and a built-in stylus, among a handful of other improvements. While the 128 GB model has the same 8 GB of RAM as the other models of the S22, the 256 GB and 512 GB versions come with 12 GB to speed up performance. The Ultra also has a more robust camera array, with a 108MP wide-angle camera paired with a 40MP front-facing camera. Not one to break with tradition, but the S22 Ultra shares the same battery issues as the two smaller models. Read our review†
The latest model of the 16-inch MacBook Pro is currently on sale on Amazon for $2,249.99, down from its usual price of $2,499.99. This is the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this particular configuration, which packs Apple’s M1 Pro CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. In addition to its impressive processor, the 16-inch machine has excellent battery life, giving this laptop some serious stamina.
The 16-inch screen features both True Tone color correction, which automatically adjusts the temperature of your screen to your environment, and ProMotion, which offers an adaptive refresh rate of up to 120 Hz. These improvements come together to provide excellent visual fidelity to the vibrant 3456 x 2234 Retina display. Apple’s latest MacBook Pro also touts improved port selection over the last-generation model, featuring three USB-C ports with Thunderbolt 4 compatibility alongside an SD card reader, HDMI output and a 3.5mm audio jack. .

Now for a portable that’s a bit more niche, the Asus ZenBook Duo is also on sale on Amazon for its lowest price yet. The model equipped with an Intel i7-1195G7 CPU costs just $1,149.99, while the i5-1155G7 configuration is available for $949.99 – a hefty $150 discount regardless of which model you’re working with.
Both configurations use the same form factor, along with 8GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. Both models also share the same 14-inch 1080p touchscreen, but what really sets this laptop apart is the inclusion of a secondary display placed just below the primary display. Essentially serving as a secondary monitor, this handy 12.6-inch IPS panel is useful for keeping your main screen uncluttered. Unfortunately, this secondary screen also forces the keyboard and trackpad to be a bit busier, forcing a less-than-ideal typing experience. While the ZenBook Duo unfortunately lacks Thunderbolt 3 support, its compatibility with a wide variety of stylus pens makes the Windows machine a worthwhile consideration for creatives.

This wired headset from EPOS is now available at the lowest price ever. The EPOS H3 is currently on sale at Amazon and GameStop for $78 instead of the usual $99.99. This lightweight closed-back headset is incredibly comfortable and offers excellent sound quality at an affordable price. The closed-back design isn’t quite noise-canceling, but it offers a decent level of noise isolation and excellent sound quality.
For in-game chat, the flexible boom mic flips up for quick mute, and the left earcup includes built-in volume controls. However, the H3 has no way of changing the microphone monitoring levels without using additional software. The wired connection makes the EPOS H3 compatible with consoles and PC, but unfortunately the headset doesn’t come with a USB-C adapter, leaving out mobile devices. Read our review†
One of our top picks for the best noise canceling headphones on sale right now. The Bose 700 headphones usually cost $379, but are discounted to $329 at both Amazon and Best Buy. The Bose 700 offers excellent sound quality and noise cancellation, but also offers remarkable clarity when it comes to voice calls. Couple this with its multipoint Bluetooth connectivity and the Bose 700 becomes one of the best picks for anyone who spends much of the day zooming.
The build quality of these headphones is solid, and even if they aren’t as light as other models in the Bose range, they still remain comfortable for a long time. The battery life may not be quite what you’d expect from competing models, but the 20-hour battery life is still nothing to scoff at. Read our review†

- Finally a bouquet of flowers that travels well. Just in time for Mother’s Day, you can currently purchase this adorable Lego bouquet on Amazon for $40.49 instead of $49.99, which is the lowest price we’ve seen for this thoughtful gift.
