Now that Mother’s Day is over and you’ve proven once again that you’re the best kid a mom could ask for, why not reward yourself with some gadget and game deals?
The Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro are Anker’s latest flagship true wireless earbuds, and they’re back to their lowest price of $129.99 on Amazon and Best Buy. One of the best things about this $30 discount is that it applies to all four colors: black, purple, gray and white. The earbuds are great value for money, some quality sound and even support nice extras like support for multipoint connections and Sony’s higher quality codec, LDAC. The active noise cancellation may not be the best out there, but at $129.99, they’re closer to the price of the base model AirPods than more expensive earbuds, offer a more unique look, and come with a case that supports wireless charging.

If you’re looking for exceptional value for a robot vacuum today, the Ecovacs Deebot N8 Plus is currently $250 off as part of Best Buy’s deal of the day. The N8 line was Ecovacs’ flagship before the new X1 series hit the market, and today’s discount drops the N8 Plus down to just $399.99.
The N8 Plus is a mid-range vacuum and mop hybrid and comes with a self-emptying station and lidar-powered mapping. It also avoids obstacles, although it’s not the more advanced AI-powered smarts that newer vacuum cleaners use to avoid accidents with pets on the floor. The N8 Plus’s mop doesn’t oscillate — it just drags it around to sweep the floor — though for about $400 you’re getting quite the value, especially since most robovacs with self-emptying stations cost quite a bit more.
There are some great deals on Pokémon games available today, including remasters and sequels to some classics from the 90s and 2000s. First, Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl are $39.99 ($20 off) each when you add them to your cart at Amazon and Best Buy. These are the latest Pokémon titles to get the remaster treatment, which launched on Nintendo Switch last year with an all-new 3D style with a particularly cute charm.
Another remarkable sale is underway New Pokemon Snapthe Switch sequel to the Nintendo 64 classic where you shoot Pokemon instead of catching or fighting them. New Pokemon Snap is also on sale for $39.99 at Best Buy and Amazon, a $20 discount that applies when you add the game to your cart at either retailer. It’s still an experience on track, just like the original, but there are plenty more pocket monsters and areas to check out. Read our review†
If those titles feel a little too dated or nostalgic for your taste, pokemon sword and Pokemon Shield are also discounted to $39.99 at Best Buy. These are the latest releases in the mainline Pokémon franchise, exploring the new Galar region for the foreseeable future pokemon violet and Scarlet launch later this year.
Most MSI laptops won’t win beauty pageants, which tend to focus more on specs and performance than design. I’ll admit, however, that the MSI Sword 15 looks a bit more upmarket, with a silver-and-black build that keeps things tidy and some nice midrange specs. Best of all, you can get this 15-inch laptop with an 11th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU, GeForce RTX 3050 Ti GPU, 512GB SSD, and 8GB RAM for $799.99 as part of today’s deal at Best buy.
While we haven’t reviewed this model from MSI, the lower asking price makes it quite attractive if you’re on a tight budget and looking for a 15-inch gaming laptop. The screen has a resolution of just 1920 x 1080, which isn’t anything out of the ordinary considering the size of the panel, but the 144Hz refresh should keep most games running smoothly at modest graphics settings.
The Backbone One is a great choice for a mobile gaming controller for your smartphone, but is currently only available for iPhones. When it comes to Android users, the Razer Kishi is one of the best options for attaching a good game controller to your phone. Fortunately, the Razer Kishi is on sale at Amazon for $44.99, one of the best prices yet. The half discount comes at a good time, because you can play now Fortnite free with Xbox Cloud Gaming. The Kishi definitely gives you an edge over anyone using touchscreen controls as it’s a good controller with full size buttons and triggers. It also fits most Android phones and has a portable, foldable design that folds down to get smaller. It even offers passthrough USB-C charging for your phone. Read our review†
