iRobot’s excellent Roomba i3 EVO refurbished is available today for $170 off


Another Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event has come and gone, with a series of announcements about foldable phones, wireless earbuds and the beastly Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. Fortunately, there are still plenty of ways to take advantage of Samsung’s ongoing pre-order promotions — ahem, see here, here and here — all of which will be available until the latest batch of Galaxy devices arrives on August 26. If foldable flagship levels and newfangled Android smartwatches aren’t your thing, we’ve got you covered with a few deals.

First up is the iRobot Roomba i3 EVO, which is currently on sale on eBay in refurbished condition for $179.99 ($170 off) with a two-year manufacturer’s warranty from iRobot. While the robovac doesn’t come with an auto-empty base like the more expensive i3 Plus EVO, it still has almost as many bells and whistles as our top pick for the best robot vacuum, the Roomba J7. The i3 EVO offers the same level of suction and almost the same battery life, as well as voice control, scheduling and smart mapping (via a more recent firmware update). You’ll probably have to clean up a bit before using the robovac, given its tendency to get caught on cables and smaller items, but if you can live with the caveats, the i3 EVO is a great option.

iRobot Roomba i3 EVO (overhauled)

Like its more expensive j7 counterpart, the more spartan iRobot Roomba i3 EVO uses two rubber brushes and a side brush to clean. It makes up for its slimmer features with a lower price and excellent software updates with added functionality.

If you’re an Apple user and need a capable stylus to take notes or take notes, the second-generation Apple Pencil is currently on sale at Amazon, Targetand walmart for $99 ($30 off), matching the lowest price yet.

The USB-C charger has become a modern staple when it comes to electronics, so much so that it’s often worth having one or two on hand wherever you go. Luckily, if you’re looking for a fast charger for your iPhone 13 or just a spare option on the go, Amazon is currently offering Anker’s budget-friendly 511 charger in a number of colors for just $14.39 (20 percent off the charger’s usual list price).

A few extra deals to watch out for

  • Amazon’s latest generation Kindle Paperwhite from 2018 is on sale from Amazon in the blue ad-supported 32GB configuration for $89.99, which almost matches the best price yet. The aging e-reader doesn’t have a USB-C port or other niceties that define the latest Paperwhite model, but it still has weeks of battery life and a screen that’s both waterproof and backlit. Read our review.
  • Comply’s foam eartips for the AirPods Pro are just $17.49 ($7.50 off) at Amazon when you click the coupon on the page for 30 percent off. These memory foam tips offer a more secure and comfortable fit than the standard tips, and they come in sizes small, medium, and large.
  • The Vizio Elevate is simply one of the coolest soundbars you can buy. The 5.1.4 soundbar system comes with two satellite speakers and a dedicated subwoofer, but the real draw is the left and right speakers, which can pivot upwards when playing Dolby Atmos audio. Normally $1,099.99, you can pick up the Elevate now at Amazon and Best Buy for $749.99, which is the best price we’ve seen on the awesome soundbar since Amazon Prime Day. Read our guide to the best soundbars.
  • Hyperkin’s Xbox 20th Anniversary Limited-Edition Version of “The Duke” Drops to $58.76 (about $31 off) in white on Amazon. It’s kinda bulky and stupid for a modern controller, but it’s a sympathetic recreation of the original Xbox controller from 20 years ago, complete with a central LCD/home button that plays the original console’s boot animation.
  • The Bose Noise Canceling Headphones 700 are still for sale at Best Buy and Amazon for $299 ($80 off), which is still the lowest price we’ve seen for the excellent pair of comfortable, noise-cancelling headphones. Read our review.
  • If you’re an 80s kid, a 90s kid, or really just a kid at heart, you can buy the 1,508-piece Lego Transformers Optimus Prime Kit for $170 (about $10 off) at Amazon. It’s the first time this set has been discounted, and it’s hard to find popular Lego kits in stock, even at the suggested retail price. Watch our very own Sean Hollister build one in a time-lapse video on TikTok.
  • B&H Photo has the Audio-Technica AT2020USB Plus USB Microphone for $99 ($50 off) just for today. Great for podcasting and streaming, this cardioid condenser microphone comes with a small desktop tripod. While it, like most condenser microphones, is great for capturing voices and fine detail, it also picks up a lot of other sounds in the room – so consider buying a mount to bring it closer to your mouth to better pick up your voice. isolate.
