Take nearly $100 off Apple’s latest MacBook Air

Amazon is taking $99 off various MacBook Air models, bringing the 512GB variant down to $1,200. That matches our mentions previously in 2020 and is the best around. Notable features here include a 13-inch Retina display, a refreshed Magic Keyboard, and the 10th generation Intel Core i3 processor along with 512GB of storage or more. It’s a great machine for tackling various tasks, content creation, and more. Learn more in our hands-on review.

iPhone XR is $399 with pre-paid service

Walmart offers Apple’s iPhone XR 64GB on Straight Talk Wireless for $399. As a comparison, this device originally sold for $749 but is listed at $599 these days. This offer is a match of our previous pre-paid mention a few months back, as well as the best non-trade-in deal we’ve seen.

Notable iPhone XR features include a 6.1-inch Liquid Retina display and water-resistance to 1-meter. You’ll find 12 and 7MP cameras here, along with support for FaceID and wireless charging. Check out our previous review coverage for more details on this affordable iPhone.

Rare discounts on Spigen iPhone cases

Amazon is discounting a selection of Spigen iPhone, Android, and iPad cases today from $8. Free shipping is available with a Prime membership or in orders over $25. Headlining is the iPhone XR Liquid Crystal Case for $8. As a comparison, it originally sold for $20 but has trended around $15 lately. With an ultra-thin design and clear casing, this option will show-off your color of choice without adding too much bulk. Additionally, Spigen promises “everyday drop defense with shock-absorbing Air Cushion Technology” will help keep your iPhone XR safe.

SanDisk’s new 1TB Extreme Portable SSD at $170

Amazon is currently offering the all-new SanDisk 1TB Extreme Portable Solid-State Drive for $170. Having dropped from $200, today’s offer marks the very first discount we’ve seen since it was announced 1-week ago, saves you 15%, and marks a new all-time low.

As the latest drive in SanDisk’s stable, you’re looking at up to 1,050MB/s transfer speeds thanks to its USB-C connectivity. The internal NVMe solid-state storage pairs with a rugged case that allows it to withstand up to 2-meter drops while also bringing IP55 water- and dust-resistance into the mix. Its compact size won’t take up too much room in your everyday carry, and a built-in loop makes it so you can clip it to a bag. Everything is backed by a 5-year warranty, as well.

Satechi Trio powers your Apple kit for $100

Satechi via Amazon offers its Trio Wireless Charging Pad for $100. As a comparison, it typically goes for $120 and we most recently saw it drop to $102 as part of Satechi’s Labor Day sale. This is also a new Amazon all-time low that we’ve tracked.

Satechi delivers an all-in-one charging solution sans wires for three devices at a time, up to 7.5W, that’s geared towards Apple users. You’ll be able to power up an iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods simultaneously, all with dedicated homes within the charging pad. Aside from its sleek design, this power solution is a winner in our book thanks to its included 24W USB-C PD power adapter. Learn more in our Tested with 9to5Toys review where we gave it high marks.
