Tech and Streaming Deals

Roku Streambar Pro

The Streambar is a soundbar with Roku built right in. The smaller, less luxe version is one of our favorite 4K streaming devices. The Pro model discounted here has larger speakers, a better remote, and a bigger physical footprint. This 2-in-1 gadget lets you load up your favorite streaming apps, like Netflix or Hulu, and listen to them with much better audio quality than your TV speakers offer (no need to plug a streaming stick into your TV). The $30 discount matches the best deal we’ve seen for the gadget on Amazon. Read our Best Soundbars guide for other recommendations. 

The iPad Pro (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is the ultimate iPad. The 11-incher is a really nice size, and thanks to the M1 chip, it has the raw power to justify its price. This model doesn’t have the Mini LED technology of the 12.9-inch model, but it’s still a nice screen with a 120-Hz refresh rate, good cameras, Face ID, and quad speakers. This discount gets you 256 GB of storage for the MSRP of the 128-GB model.  

The 2021 iPad Mini (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is a smidge more expensive now than it was a couple of weeks ago, but this is still a great deal. This is the best portable tablet around, perfect for catching up with a book or a movie on the go. Our Best iPads guide has more advice, and you can check out our Best iPad Accessories guide to round out your tablet experience.
