PayPal’s official eBay storefront is currently offering $100 Apple App Store gift cards for $85 with email delivery. That’s good for 15% off and the best price available. You can use these gift cards to grab discounted Apple services like Apple Arcade, Music, and more. Head over to our daily app and games roundup to score even better deals.

Apple’s latest iPad Air returns to best prices yet

Amazon is currently taking up to $52 off Apple’s latest iPad Air with the best deals coming on cellular configuration models. Various Wi-Fi listings are on sale as well. Today’s deals are a match of our previous mentions. Apple’s latest iPad Air sports a 10.5-inch Retina display, 8MP and 7MP cameras, and support for Apple Pencil. All of which is powered by the new A12 64-bit SoC processor. Make the most of your savings today and grab a new case as well. This option is available in various colors and offers enough protection without adding too much bulk. It also sports sleep and wake functionality, so you can easily use it in tandem with your new iPad Air.

Pioneer 7-inch CarPlay receiver is $145 off

Amazon is offering the Pioneer 7-inch Wireless CarPlay/Android Auto Receiver (W4500NEX) for $550. That’s $145 off the typical rate and is one of the best offers we have tracked. While I have no intention of switching smartphones anytime soon, Google, Samsung, and many others make really compelling devices these days. With such a high level of competition, it’s best to plan ahead and buy platform-agnostic solutions. This receiver features wireless CarPlay and Android Auto, letting owners take advantage of the latest and greatest in-car software from Apple and Google without cables killing the vibe.

Estalon’s cowhide leather MacBook Bag is now $23

Woot is now offering the Estalon Leather Messenger Bag in black for $23. Regularly up to $70 at Amazon, it has sold for more like $54 or so for last few months. Today’s offer is matching our previous mention, $17 under the Amazon all-time low and the best we can find. This full-grain cowhide leather messenger bag sports a padded 13-inch MacBook pocket as well as bottom-mounted foam padding to protect your gear against drops and hard surfaces. It also houses two larger pockets, a zippered compartment for your wallet as well as RFID protection and a pen holder.

Add Hunter’s HomeKit Ceiling Fan to your Siri setup at $84 off

Amazon offers the Hunter SimpleConnect Signal Smart HomeKit Ceiling Fan for $266. Normally selling for $350, today’s offer is good for a 24% discount, is $23 under our previous mention and the third-best price we’ve seen in years. Hunter’s line of SimpleConnect ceiling fans integrate with Alexa, Assistant and Siri out of the box, allowing you to control the fan’s speed, built-in light, and more with your voice. Now that autumn weather is rolling in, this makes a nice alternative for the occasional cool down compared to your AC. This Signal model sports reversible reclaimed walnut and burnt oak grain fan blades alongside a matte nickel finish.
