The 14 Best Weekend Deals on Earbuds, Robot Vacuums, and More

The months of endless, locked-down monotony are wearing on, but here at WIRED, we're looking for bright spots wherever we can. A lot of great earbuds are on sale this weekend, just right for puttering around the yard or blocking out your spouse. Also, we may not be making grand travel plans for Labor Day, but it does mean that great (off-season) sales are on the way.

This weekend is also the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which will run through August 30. If you're in a browsing kind of mood, don't forget to check out our latest buying guides for advice on how to pick out a kid-friendly tablet, a Dyson vacuum, and more.

Earbuds and Phone Deals

Check out our Best Android Phones and Best Wireless Earbuds guides for more recommendations.

Jabra Elite 75t for $150 ($30 off): WIRED audio reviewer Parker Hall says these waterproof and sweatproof buds are his go-to for yard work, long runs, and other socially distanced outdoor excursions.

Aukey True Wireless Earbuds for $30 ($20 off): These are WIRED service editor Alan Henry's favorite cheap earbuds. You get 25 hours of playback with the case and five hours from the buds.

Sony WF-1000XM3 for $178 ($52 off): Sony recently released a new version of its industry-leading over-ear headphones, so new noise-canceling earbuds are probably on the way. We still love these, though, and they're a great buy on sale.

Nokia 7.2 (Unlocked) for $250 ($100 off): This (now even more) affordable Android phone was one of our top picks in 2019, and it's still a good phone. It's no Pixel 4A, but it has a big LCD screen, a decent processor, and day-long battery life. Plus, you get two years of Android version upgrades and monthly security updates.

Moto G Stylus (Unlocked) for $270 ($30 off): Someone please tell me why I spent $700 on an iPhone again? The Moto G Stylus is in our Best Cheap Phones guide. It has a nice screen, a battery that lasts two days (!), and a headphone jack. The rest of Motorola's latest affordable lineup is also on sale at Best Buy. If you want even better battery life, the Moto G Power is $230 ($20 off), and if your budget is tight, the Moto G Fast is a solid phone that's just $170 ($30 off).

Select Nintendo Switch Games up to 50 Percent Off: If you have a Switch, you're probably getting heavy use out of it during quarantine. This sale ends on August 30, and some of our favorite picks include Just Dance ($20 off) and Luigi's Mansion 3 ($18 off).

Razer BlackWidow Elite for $100 ($70 off): We're big fans of everything Razer, especially when it comes to its mechanical keyboards. This model has RGB lighting along with dedicated media keys and a handy volume knob.

Corsair HS60 Pro for $50 ($20 off): We haven't tested this gaming headset yet (our first Corsair model just arrived!). But this looks like a fairly well-built set, especially at this extremely affordable price.

Garmin Fenix 5 (Refurbished) for $200 ($300 off): The Fenix 5 is not the latest iteration of Garmin's backcountry watch series. But it's still waterproof, comes with colorful onboard maps, and pairs with every fitness sensor under the sun.

Roborock S6 for $435 With Promo Code ROBOROCKS6 ($214 off): In my (Adrienne's) experience, Roborock has consistently offered great performance with its robot vacuums for relatively low prices.

Anker Roav Bluetooth Car Adapter and Charger for $22 With Coupon ($8 off): This is a cheap and convenient way to plug and play music in your pre-Bluetooth-enabled car.

Coleman Personal Cooler for $10 ($8 off): As much as I (Adrienne) love a spendy, rotomolded cooler, I've had one of these for about 10 years, and it hasn't busted yet. This is the perfect size for an easy, socially distanced picnic.

WeMo Smart Light Switch for $20 ($10 off): Fumble around your house in the dark no more! WeMo's smart light switch replaces your existing one to control your lights. It works with Apple's HomeKit, Google Assistant, and Alexa.

S'well Bottle for $23 ($12 off): We're not leaving our houses for that long nowadays, but the attractive, insulated S'well bottles are a favorite of both senior writer Lauren Goode and myself (Adrienne). This bottle is also in our Best Reusable Water Bottles roundup.
