Samsung’s next Unpacked event kicks off on February 1, when we expect it to launch the Galaxy S23 and a new Galaxy Book laptop. As usual, the company has opened some promotions that allow you to earn free credits to use in the online store. From now through the day of the event, you can easily place a free reservation for either one Galaxy S23 or the Galaxy book will get you a $50 gift card, or $100 if you choose to reserve both. The catch is that in order to get this credit, you must pre-order them as soon as the floodgate opens on February 1.
Actually, there is more than one catch. YOU should spend the free gift card when you put down money for your pre-order – and you can’t use it to buy your new S23 or Galaxy Book cheaper. Instead, it is available for accessories and other equipment Samsung. com or via the Shop Samsung mobile app. If you don’t use it during this purchase, you will lose it.
The Logitech G435 Speed of Light is about as feature-packed as sub-$150 wireless gaming headsets, but at a fraction of the cost. at Amazon, you can choose from two different color schemes that cost just $29.99 each ($80 originally). These were my favorites of 2022 and not just because of their low price. What they lack in premium build materials they make up for in good sound quality, solid wireless performance, acceptable comfort, and dual wireless modes (2.4 GHz and Bluetooth). You may be able to find a cheaper wireless gaming headset, but I wouldn’t recommend trying it if there are any offers this one good on a solid model that I can vouch for.
There’s a solid deal going on at Amazon on a robot vacuum cleaner that we feel much better recommending for $300 instead of the original price of $449. The product is Yeedis Vac 2 Pro, and it can vacuum things as well as mop your floors. My colleague Jennifer Pattison Tuohy praised his excellent mopping ability and his ability to avoid getting stuck on the job. That it can be controlled with your voice via Google Assistant or Alexa is another plus.
Performance was never in question during our review; however, it has some shortcomings that made the higher $449 price point hard to swallow, such as the so-so visual mapping capabilities that skipped large swathes of the rooms during our testing and the fact that you have to remove the mop in order to vacuum. We’ve found it never took longer than 85 minutes to charge, so it may be best for smaller homes. Read our review.
Best Buy still offers this mild stunner on the ninth generation iPad from 2021. The The 64 GB version that can connect via Wi-Fi costs $249.99, which is the lowest price a major retailer has sold it for. You even get 25 percent off a Logitech keyboard folio when you buy it. (Look below the price for a small section labeled “Hot offer” for more details.) This model is hard to find in stock at Amazon – otherwise I’d expect that retailer to match this deal.
This is the last iPad with the now-old-fashioned design with a Touch ID button on the front and a Lightning connector on the bottom. Those are pros or cons depending on who you ask, as the newer model has a refreshed design, larger screen and USB-C charging. It also has a slightly faster chipset (A14 Bionic compared to A13 Bionic). This discounted iPad might be for you if it’s important to you that there’s a headphone jack, not to mention it’s now $200 less.
