The 19 Best Weekend Deals: Tech, Home Gear, and More

Maybe it’s due to sheltering in place these past several months, or maybe it’s because of the relentless heat beginning to pass through most of the US, but it seems the days are blurring together more than ever. If weekends don’t feel like weekends anymore, perhaps a change of perspective is in order. We found discounts all over the web to help you switch things up in your kitchen, your closet, your hiking bag, and more.

For more new ways to entertain yourself, check out WIRED’s Summer Reading List and the YouTube channels we’ve been geeking out over.

Tech Deals

  • 1More Stylish True Wireless Earbuds for $76 ($24 off): These are the top choice in our Best Wirefree Earbuds guide, because they deliver great sound in a small package at a low price. And now they’re even more affordable. Several of us on the WIRED Gear team have purchased these as gifts for friends and family members.
  • Apple AirPods Pro for $220 ($30 off): This deal is not new. We usually see the AirPods Pro dip to this price. Still, this is our favorite wireless earbuds for iPhone owners. In his review, resident audiophile Parker Hall says they’re “what Apple’s earbuds should always have been.”
  • Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K for $25 ($25 off): This deal is only valid for select Amazon Prime members, but it’s a good price if you’re eligible. Use coupon code 4KFIRETV to get the discount. To find out if you’re eligible, look near the product description. This device is one of our favorite streaming sticks.
  • Apple AirPods with Wireless Charging Case for $150 ($49 off): The newest edition of the non-Pro AirPods is just fine. If you have to stick with Apple and you don’t want to shell out for the Pros, this is a decent deal. It comes with the wireless charging case, so all you need to do is plop the case on a wireless charger to recharge the whole package.
  • Ultimate Ears Boom 3 for $117 ($30 off): Our favorite Bluetooth speaker is up for grabs in a few different colors at this price. You might not be attending pool parties, but if you crank up the garden hose, hop in your swimsuit, and blast your beach playlist out of this waterproof cylinder, you might have almost as much fun.
  • Aukey 30,000-mAh USB-C Power Bank for $42 ($18 off): This deal is a WIRED exclusive. Use coupon code WIREDPBY3 to see the price drop. This power bank has enough capacity to charge modern phones nearly eight times before needing to be recharged itself. It will take you quite some time to recharge the battery, though (around eight hours).
  • WD Easystore 4 TB External Hard Drive for $80 ($120 off): Need to back up your data? This external hard drive has more than enough room for your photos and files. It works with Windows right out of the box and can be reformatted to work with MacOS.

Miscellaneous Deals

  • PDX Maker Sale: Up to 25 Percent off: Several Portland-based brands have gathered together to offer up to 25 percent off various goods. Use code PDXMAKER to save on brands like Rumpl, Snow Peak, Stumptown Coffee, Grovemade, Roasters, and more.
  • Puma Semi-Annual Sale: We haven’t written much about Puma here at WIRED, but a few of our writers like its products. I, Louryn, use a Puma duffel bag like this one (on sale for $10 off) to tote around my skates and respective gear. There’s a ton to choose from in this sale, like running shoes, leggings, and hats, and expedited shipping is only $8.
  • GameStop Funko Pop! Figure Sale: GameStop is offering five Funko Pop! figurines for $40, four for $36, or three for $30. Usually they sell for $12 a pop, so if you’ve got a Funko obsession, check out the nearly 1,000 options to see if anything catches your eye.
  • Hotel Piped Trim Robe for $87 ($22 off): This is one of WIRED writer Medea Giordano’s top picks for Tony Soprano robe look-alikes. It’s soft, easy to care for, and will turn “working from home in your pajamas” to “lounging in luxury” real quick—especially if you pay to get your initials monogrammed on the front.
  • Unbound Babes Palma for $99 ($29 off): While Palma isn’t included in our list of the best sex tech yet, it’s similar to the Crave Vesper Vibrator (another favorite) in that Palma is designed to be flaunted, not hidden. The statement ring makes for trendy jewelry, but it’s also a powerful three-speed vibrator that features two customizable modes and a luxe charging display case. Wearing it is half the fun.
