52 Absolute Best Memorial Day Sales of 2021 (Updated): Tech, Games, Home, and More


OnePlus 8T Android Phone for $569 ($180 off): The OnePlus 8T (7/10, WIRED Review) is a capable, nice-looking smartphone that should be fine for those who want an upgrade but not necessarily the latest and greatest. The screen, battery life, and camera are standout features. It’s not a great value at full price, but at nearly $200 less, it’s a worthy pick.

Totallee Phone Cases for 50 percent off: Use code MEMORIAL at checkout to save. Totallee makes some of our favorite thin phone cases. They’re not as protective, but they’re not bulky or obtrusive. There are options for iPhone, Galaxy, and Pixel smartphones.

Tribit Stormbox Micro Bluetooth Speaker for $32 ($16 off): At Amazon, clip the on-page coupon and enter code MMDDPRMT at checkout to save. This speaker goes on sale for around $35 on nearly every shopping holiday. This is a match of a deal we saw earlier this week. It’s on our list of the best Bluetooth speakers—we especially like it for biking.

Jabra Elite Active 75T True Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds for $150 ($30 off): The Elite Active 75T are some of our favorite wireless headphones. They’re durable, sweat-resistant, and comfortable. The sound quality and battery life are both great too.

Beats Solo Pro for $150 ($150 off) at Amazon, Walmart: The Beats Solo Pro (8/10, WIRED Recommends) haven’t sold for less than this. Despite being a bit older, they’re still fashionable, comfortable, and have good sound as well as noise-canceling tech. 

Apple AirPods Max for $520 ($30 off): The AirPods Max (8/10, WIRED Recommends) are expensive, even when they’re on sale. This is the best price we’ve seen for them. In his review, WIRED audio reviewer Parker Hall says they’re “not without quirks, but in terms of sound, build quality, and features, they are the best noise-canceling headphones I’ve ever tested.”

Apple Watch Series 6 for $329 ($70 off) at Amazon, Walmart: We have seen this deal a few times recently, but it’s still a good one. This is the best fitness tracker for iPhone owners. The Series 6 has several helpful functions, like automatic fall detection, blood oxygen monitoring, and workout tracking. Here’s our full review.
