Memorial Day weekend is your chance to save big on AirPods, iPads, games and more

On a typical weekend, we all might be in the midst of Sunday blues as we see Monday peeking over the horizon. But alas, it’s a three-day weekend and the unofficial kickoff to summer: Memorial Day. It’s a weekend that’s become known for family time, BBQs — and deep discounts.

While Amazon doesn’t have a dedicated Memorial Day sales event, there are still some great discounts to shop right now (we’ve also rounded up more than 200 of the best Memorial Day deals). We’re seeing some of the best discounts on tech in a while across many categories: TVs, true wireless earbuds (yes, AirPods included), laptops, tablets and much more on Amazon and other retailers.


AirPods Pro. Where else would we start but with our favorite pair of true wireless earbuds? The AirPods Pro are marked down to $229.95 from $249 on Amazon.

Amazon also has discounts on the AirPods with Charging Case ($129.98, originally $159) and AirPods with Wireless Charging Case ($149.98, originally $199.99).

BestBuy is taking $100 off the 7th Gen iPad. It’s frequently discounted and backordered, but it’s for a good reason. Apple’s entry-level iPad brings an incredible amount of value to the table. You get a 10.2-inch Retina display with True Tone, the A10 Fusion Chip, iPadOS and 10 hours of battery life. Plus, you can save on Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi + cellular configurations.

The 2020 MacBook Air is even cheaper than usual with $50 off from Amazon. You can get the Air with 256GB of solid-state storage, 8GBs of RAM and an Intel Core i3 processor for $950.

Headphones and earbuds

The Beats Solo Pro (our pick for best noise-canceling headphone) are on sale now on Amazon ($249.95, originally $299.95).

Sony’s WH-1000XM3, our pick for best over-ear headphones, are also discounted this weekend ($278, originally $349.99; You can pick between black or silver, although the latter is more of a champagne color.

Additionally, the Beats Solo3, our pick for best on-ear Headphones, are discounted to $179, a $20.95 discount from Amazon.

If you’re looking for a deal on a PS4, GameStop has refurbished PS4 Pros for $279.99. This console has an MSRP of $400, so this is a solid discount for a fast console that supports 4K.

Amazon devices
