  • If you want the cheapest AirPods money can buy, Apple’s second-gen AirPods are down to an all-time low of $69 ($60 off) at Walmart and Amazon.

  • Sony’s LinkBuds Sare on sale at Walmart starting at $138.60. This isn’t the lowest we’ve seen the wireless earbuds go for — they’ve dropped down to as low as $108 in the past — but it’s still a respectable $61 discount. That’s a decent price for a pair of noise-canceling earbuds with excellent sound and support for the LDAC lossless audio codec. They also feature a helpful transparency mode for when you want to hear your surroundings. Read our review.

There’s also an integrated microphone that allows the lights to respond to sound, whether from the game you’re playing or to visualize any music you’re listening to.
  • Sony’s DualSense Edge controller for the PlayStation 5 is down to $174.99 ($25 off) at Walmart, which is the best price we’ve seen on the pro-style controller so far.

It comes with a hard-shell carrying case, too. Read our review.
  • The original Pulse 3D headset for the PlayStation 5 is down to $87.99 ($12 off) in select colors at Walmart, which isn’t the lowest price we’ve seen but is a decent consolation if you can’t afford the updated Pulse Elite model.

You can dial in your preferred EQ settings, too, with three presets and three slots to customize your own.

  • Apple’s latest entry-level smartwatch — the second-gen Apple Watch SE is on sale at Walmart in the GPS configuration starting at $189 ($60 off).

Roku’s Streaming Stick 4K maintains its simple interface that puts your apps front and center and adds support for Dolby Vision HDR. Read our review.

  • You can save on the 2023 TCL Q6 series of TVs in a variety of sizes, including the 65-inch configuration (now $398 at Walmart and Amazon), the 75-inch configuration (now $498 at Walmart), and the 85-inch configuration (now $748 at Walmart). The Q6 sets use Google’s TV software, which supports voice assistants like Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. The TVs can technically meet modern gaming standards with a “Game Accelerator 120” mode, which halves the 4K resolution to push its native 60Hz refresh rate to a simulated 120Hz variable refresh rate. It also supports AMD FreeSync and an auto low-latency mode for reduced input lag and screen tearing. Dolby Vision and HDR10 Plus round out the list of visual upgrades with DTS Virtual:X for surround audio, but sadly, there’s no Dolby Atmos support.
  • The 55-inch TCL S5 from 2024 is also on sale for $278 ($172 off) at Walmart. While it doesn’t have the QLED panel like the Q series highlighted above, the S5 supports a lot of the same visual features and even has some unique tricks of its own. That includes support for Dolby Atmos and Apple Home with AirPlay 2 integration.

The 2022 iPad Air retains the iPad Pro-esque redesign of the 2020 model but does away with the A14 Bionic processor in favor of Apple’s last-gen M1 chip. It also comes in one of five colors and boasts a 12MP front-facing camera with support for Apple’s Center Stage feature. Read our review.

  • The second-gen Apple Pencil is basically matching its all-time low of $79.99 ($50 off) at Walmart, Amazon, and Target (with a free Circle membership).

It also supports tap gestures.
  • You can grab a pair of Govee DreamView P1 light bars for $49.99 ($21 off) at Walmart and Govee. The reactive lights are small enough to fit on a desk or an entertainment stand yet bright enough to paint your wall with colors, allowing you to illuminate your room based on whatever music you’re listening to or the content on your TV. You can also control the lighting using your voice via Alexa, Google Assistant, or Govee’s smartphone app.

To build on its predecessor, the GoPro Hero 11 Black brought the widest field of view and the ability to shoot 27-megapixel photos (up from 23 megapixels). Otherwise, the rugged action camera is a familiar option with the ability to shoot video up to 5.3K at 60fps or 4K at 120fps.

  • The Insta360 X4 will still run you the base $499.99 price at Walmart as it will everywhere else, but the retailer is currently bundling it with a carrying case, a 64GB microSD card, a lens cleaning kit, and a few other accessories. The waterproof 8K action camera uses two sensors to record in all directions around you, which lets you swivel the point of view to any angle you want when editing your footage. (You can also record with just one sensor if you want to use it as an ordinary action cam.)
