If you tend to lose everything you own—your keys, your fanny pack, whatever you have—a set of ultra-wideband Bluetooth trackers is a good choice for keeping track of your belongings. And right now, Apple’s handy AirTags are available in four-packs from Amazon and Walmart for $89.99, a slight $10 discount but one we rarely see.
If you’re unfamiliar with Apple’s hyper-precise trackers, there are a few things to consider. Even though you can spot them with an Android device, they really are an ideal option for those who are already invested in the Apple ecosystem, as they use Apple’s extensive Find My network to locate your lost items. They’re also IP67 water and dust resistant and have end-to-end encryption, which is handy as only you can get their location. Apple sure has work to do on the security front, but if you’re an iPhone user, AirTags remain a tough location tracker to beat. Read our review.
For some people, getting a pair of wireless earbuds that fit comfortably or stay in their ears while they move is a never-ending quest. Luckily, there are options like the UE Fits, which are currently available direct from Ultimate Ears for $159 ($40 off), one of the lowest prices yet. The fits can adjust to the shape of your ears in under a minute, giving you a more secure fit without a visit to the hearing care professional. While they don’t have general features like noise-cancelling or auto-pause, the custom buds offer good sound, eight hours of battery life, and a USB-C charging case, making them a solid choice if you’re struggling with the range of earbuds which are packaged with other wireless earbuds.

There are many wireless chargers on the market right now – we should know, having reviewed many MagSafe-friendly options for our buying guide, as well as very recent models like Nomad’s Stand One. However, if you’re an iPhone or Android user looking for a no-frills way to charge your phone at your desk or overnight, the Anker 313 wireless charger is currently available for $15.99 on Amazon and Anker (with promo code WS7DHM9R7I) available. The Qi charging stand has a maximum output of 10 watts if you’re using a Galaxy phone – or 7.5 watts if you’re using a newer iPhone model – but it’s a cheap, reliable option that comes with a micro- USB cable is supplied. Just remember to bring a wall charger if you don’t already have one.
If you’re looking for an affordable Apple tablet, we usually recommend the ninth-generation model. However, if you’re looking for a tablet that takes design cues from the 2022 iPad Air at a lower price, Apple’s latest iPad is available again from Amazon and Best Buy, starting at $399, the tablet’s lowest price yet. The 10th-gen model features a front-facing FaceTime camera on the longer edge of the screen – as opposed to the short side – as well as USB-C charging, Wi-Fi 6 support, and a speedy A14 Bionic chip. You’re giving up the home button and a headphone jack if you make the jump from the cheaper 2021 model, but if you’re not a 3.5mm diehard it’s a small price to pay for a refreshed design and a larger 10.9- inch screen .
