MacBook Air and Pro see huge refurb discounts

Today only, Woot is offering certified refurbished Apple MacBook Air and Pro at notable discounts. Our top pick is the 2018 13-inch MacBook Air models from $720. As a comparison, you’d originally pay $1,099 or more for these MacBooks and Apple is currently charging at least $779 in refurbished condition. Shop the entire sale here for more.

iPad mini 5 starts at $350

Amazon is currently taking $49 off various iPad mini 5 Wi-Fi models, returning prices to the lowest we’ve tracked at the online giant. Additional deals are available at Best Buy with the same discount from $350. Apple’s latest iPad mini delivers an ultra-portable design, 7.9-inch Retina display, and an A12 chip + M12 coprocessor. Touch ID rounds out the list of notable features along with support for Apple Pencil. We heralded its smart form-factor as a defining feature “when portability matters most” in our hands-on review.

Snag a $9 Milanese Loop Apple Watch band

Amazon offers this Milanese Loop Stainless Steel Apple Watch Band for $9 in various sizes and colors. As a comparison, it typically sells for $12 with today’s deal marking a new Amazon all-time low. There are a handful of different colors available today, so you can customize your Apple Watch with just the right look. Not to mention, this is a fraction of what Apple charges for its in-house option. The magnetic wristband makes it easy to get an exact fit, which isn’t always so easy with sport band alternatives.

Save $100 on Sennheiser’s MOMENTUM earbuds

Amazon is currently offering the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds for $200. Typically selling for $300, today’s offer saves you 34%, is the best we’ve seen in months, and matches the third-best we’ve seen to date. With the brand’s newest earbuds about to ship, now is your chance to score the previous iteration at a steep discount. With exceptional audio clarity that Sennheiser contends is like being at the performance, you’ll be able to enjoy all of your favorite music, podcasts, and more with “category-leading sound.” A cord-free design pairs with 4-hours of playback per charge, which is amplified to 12 thanks to the canvas-coated charging case.

VIZIO 55-inch 4K AirPlay 2 TV hits $378

Walmart is currently offering the VIZIO 55-inch Dolby Vision 4K HomeKit-enabled Smart UHDTV for $378. Considering similar models at Best Buy fetch $550 and this exact one goes for $500 direct at VIZIO. Today’s deal is only about $20 above our last mention and is the best available right now. VIZIO’s latest TV offers both HomeKit and AirPlay 2, making it the perfect addition to any smart home. However, those who aren’t in Apple’s ecosystem will enjoy Chromecast as well as allowing you to easily send content from any smartphone or computer to your TV. You’ll get three HDMI ports here, meaning that you can easily plug in all of your home theater gear with ease.
