MacBook Air M1 (2020): was $999.99 now $799.99 at Best Buy
The Apple MacBook Air from 2020 with its revolutionary M1 chip is still one of the best laptops ever made, even though it's a few years old now. We awarded the device 4.5 stars out of five in our MacBook Air M1 review and still rate it highly to this day. Apple's premium laptop is fast, responsive, beautifully designed and has a long-lasting battery life. That's why you should definitely consider this deal that brings the device down to its lowest-ever price.

Ring Video Doorbell (Wireless): was $99.99 now $69.99 at Best Buy
If your home doesn't have existing wiring, or you'd prefer the convenience of a wireless setup, then you can pick up this version of the Ring Video Doorbell. It's now $30 off, which is $10 away from the record-low price we saw over Black Friday last November. Even still, it's still a good offer for some useful smart home tech that can monitor your door and respond to visitors.

Keurig K-Duo Coffee Maker: $189.99 $159.99 at Best Buy

Keurig K-Duo Coffee Maker: was $189.99 now $159.99 at Best Buy
This do-it-all coffee maker from Keurig allows you to use grounds to brew larger pots of your favorite fast juice or pods to make single-serve portions in no time. Good for those who may be working from home one day and then just need a single shot to take on the go the next day. It's a good price for an appliance that offers so much flexibility, too, and has useful features like a timer and a removable water tank.

Apple Watch SE: $249$219 at Best Buy

Apple Watch SE: was $249 now $219 at Best Buy
A very short-lived voucher at Amazon dropped the price of the latest Apple Watch SE by an extra $20, but this is the next best offer we've seen on the popular smartwatch. While the Apple Watch SE lacks all the bells and whistles found on the Apple Watch 8, it still packs a fast processor, excellent battery life, and all the most-wanted health and fitness features.

Dyson V7: $399.99$249.99 at Best Buy

Dyson V7: was $399.99 now $249.99 at Best Buy
Best Buy has a healthy $150 saving on the vacuum that we awarded four stars out of five in our Dyson V7 review. It's an affordable, lightweight and versatile option that has no issues sucking up hair, dirt and even pebbles around the house or in the car. The only major downside is that the run time is a little underwhelming at around 30 minutes so it's likely a better buy for a smaller home.

Acer Chromebook Spin 311: $249$169 at Best Buy

Acer Chromebook Spin 311: was $249 now $169 at Best Buy
This is a terrific low price for a versatile little Chromebook for light use. In our Acer Chromebook Spin 311 review, we said the 360-degree design, build quality and touchscreen all impressed - to the point where it claimed a spot on our best Chromebook list. The fact you can get a laptop with all these handy features for under $200 is a bargain.

Sony Bravia A90J 55-inch 4K OLED TV: was $1,399.99 now $999.99 at Best Buy
An OLED TV for $1,000 or less is always a sweet spot to aim for, making this deal on the fantastic Sony Bravia A90J well worth highlighting. It's an older model now but still holds up as a stellar OLED display - one that originally received full marks in our Sony A90J review. Get it if you want a more affordable option that's still in the realm of high-end display technology with exquisite picture quality, decent sound and HDMI 2.1 support for smooth gaming performance on PS5 and Xbox Series X.
