This week brought back some of our favorite tech deals we’ve seen all year. A four-pack of Apple’s AirTags is back on sale for $89, while the Apple TV 4K has dropped to $130. While neither are all-time lows, they are very close and offer great deals on some of the most popular Apple gadgets of the moment. Amazon just discounted its Echo smart speaker to $60, which is a record low and a return to Prime Day prices. Plus, you can still pick up the Chromecast with Google TV for just $40. Here are this week’s best tech deals to get today.
Apple TV 4K
The Apple TV 4K is back in stock at Amazon and is priced at $130. While it’s not quite as cheap as last week’s Prime Day ($109), this remains one of the best prices we’ve seen for our favorite high-end set-top box. We gave the device 90 points for its fast performance, support for Dolby Vision and Atmos, HomeKit integration, and much-improved Siri remote.

Apple’s WiFi + Cellular iPad mini is almost $100 off Amazon, down to $550. That’s the best price we’ve seen for these models, and we gave the small tablet a score of 89 for its updated design, solid performance, good battery life, and new Center Stage camera system.

Apple’s four-pack of AirTags is $10, down to $89. Although we saw the bundle drop to $85 for a brief period during Prime Day last week, this sale is still good, especially if you have a bunch of items that you know you can buy with this one accessories want to keep track of.

Blink Outdoor + Blink Mini
Amazon includes a free Blink Mini Camera when you purchase a Blink Outdoor Kit, saving you a total of $35 on the bundle. Blink cameras are a relatively inexpensive way to add security cameras to your home—all record 1080p video and support two-way audio and motion alerts. The outdoor cameras are wireless and weatherproof, while the Blink Mini is a smaller, wired camera designed to fit into tight spaces in your home.

Echo Show 15 + Echo Show 5
A bundle that includes the Echo Show 15 smart display and the Echo Show 5 is priced at $250, which essentially means you get the Show 5 for free. The Show 15 is Amazon’s most unique smart display in that it’s a large TV-like device that you can mount on the wall and show you things like calendar events, reminders, shopping lists, and more. You can also use it to video chat and watch shows and movies from services like Netflix, Prime Video, and more. The Echo Show 5 is one of our favorite smaller smart displays thanks to its compact design, decent audio quality, and useful tap-to-snooze feature.

Solo Stove’s summer sale is bringing fire pits up to $350 off, so you can snag one for just $200. The rebates are $100 off the Ranger, $180 off the Bonfire, and $350 off the Yukon. We like these fire pits because their double-walled designs minimize smoke while keeping the fire hot, and they’re slim and relatively portable.

Elgato Stream Deck MK.2
Elgato’s Stream Deck MK.2 is $25 and it’s down to $125, which is the cheapest we’ve seen. This is the latest version of the company’s handy streaming controller, and it packs 15 programmable buttons that can trigger actions like launching apps, muting your mic, turning on lights, and more. It’s a popular peripheral for game streamers, but general power users will also find plenty of uses for the gadget.
