Best Amazon deals to shop today


Amazon unveiled its latest Echo Dot smart speaker at its annual hardware event on Wednesday. The updated Dot should sound better than ever with a redesigned audio architecture, and it’s also capable of functioning as a Wi-Fi mesh extender for Eero routers. If you’re yet to go all in on mesh routers, Amazon is giving you the chance to save on one by bundling the new smart speaker with an Eero device at a $19 discount. 


It’s never a bad idea to stock up on LED flashlights and this deal at Amazon scores you four for just $13. Each delivers 300 lumens of brightness on just three AAA batteries with a rugged, IPX4-rated design making them ideal for everything from DIY tasks to camping trips. Be sure to clip the on-page coupon to save 50%.


If you’re in the market for a 4K projector, this heavily discounted Xgimi model is worth considering. It offers UHD resolution, auto-alignment and auto-focus, 2,200 ANSI lumens of brightness as well as integrated Harman Kardon speakers. It also runs Android 10, giving you easy access to Google Play’s library of streaming apps. 


In recent years, Apple’s MacBook Air has been a top pick for those favoring portability, thanks to its thin-and-light design. In 2020, the machine was revolutionized with Apple silicon, upping its power and adding hours of battery life without increasing in bulk or price. Though the 2020 MacBook Air M1 has since been replaced by 2022’s MacBook Air M2, it’s still one of the best MacBooks you can buy today and doesn’t require that you spend $1,200. Right now you can get one on Amazon, which dropped its price to just $850.

There’s more than one way to protect your data. Yes, you’ll want to make sure it’s safe from hackers and prying eyes, but you’ll also want to make sure you’re storing your files somewhere that’s not at risk of their being damaged or corrupted. And that’s especially true if you need to take them with you on the go. If you’re looking for a portable storage drive that offers serious protection, you’ll want to consider the Samsung T7 Shield — and right now you can pick up either the 1TB or 2TB model at a discount.
