It’s not tough to get around paying the full $49.99 price on Google’s Nest Mini smart speaker. Right now, Google sells them for $35 each, and during the holiday season last year, they dropped down to $25. Those are good prices, but Daily Steals is offering Verge readers a discount on a two-pack that’s considerably better. By using the offer code VERGENEST at checkout, you can get two for $46.99.
These speakers are brand new and are covered by Google’s one-year manufacturer warranty. Currently, Daily Steals has each color available (coral, charcoal, chalk, and sky blue).
Best Buy is also hosting a flash sale on a range of tech products that lasts until the end of the day. Laptops, TVs and appliances make up much of what’s discounted, and only a few items out of the lot stick out as being particularly good deals.
Apple’s second-gen AirPods with wired charging case are $128.99 ($31 off) at Best Buy. This matches the lowest price we’ve seen for this model yet, though if you’ve been watching AirPods pricing, this price isn’t anything new. Amazon currently offers the same deal, if you’d rather buy there.
Dell’s G7 17.3-inch gaming laptop is worth checking out now that it’s only $1,149.99 ($400 off). It boasts a ninth-gen Intel Core i7 processor, Nvidia’s midrange RTX 2060 graphics, 16GB of RAM, and a 1TB spinning drive and 256GB solid-state drive combo. This machine should be able to run most games on medium to high settings, and its Thunderbolt 3 port and SD card slot give it some versatility for when you aren’t gaming.
The 2018 version of TCL’s 65-inch 6-series 4K HDR Roku TV is $499.99. It’s a good value since it has set-top box software running natively in the TV, and it’s also generally easy to recommend in some other important ways. When The Verge’s Chris Welch reviewed it in 2018, it stood out from others in its price bracket with excellent picture quality, a brushed metal trim design that hides fingerprints, and again, the easy-to-use Roku software that has good app support.
It’s always worth noting that Best Buy’s variation of this TV includes a remote that requires line of sight to operate, though for $30 more, the TV sold on Amazon comes with one that can be used even when line of sight is obstructed.
