For the few who don’t already know, every variety of Nintendo’s popular Switch console can get a storage upgrade by installing a microSD card. And while you’re most likely to come across deals for microSD cards with 64GB, 128GB, or 256GB of storage, there’s a must-have deal at Amazon on the SanDisk 400GB variant. Normally $69.99 ( but usually between $45 and $50), you can buy one now for just $39.99. It’s just a few dollars less than the best price ever.
If you have the opportunity to get a microSD card, I think you should get the biggest one you can afford, as you will have more space for games, screenshots and game saves in the future. Games for the Nintendo Switch range from a few gigabytes to tens of gigabytes per game, so a 400GB card may be the only one you’ll need. And if you ever leave your Switch, microSD cards can work with some Android phones, Chromebooks, and other gadgets like GoPro cameras.
Looking for a discounted Sonos Beam soundbar? The company itself hosts an agreement on the first-gen Sonos Beam soundbar that knocks $140 off the original price. The problem? It’s refurbished – but don’t let that stop you. For $259, the Ombre Color Bundle will arrive in like-new condition. Additionally, this soundbar is backed by a one-year warranty, just like a new product, and a 45-day return policy through Sonos.
If you compare the specs between the first and second generation Beam soundbars, the differences are minimal. Aside from a slight cosmetic redesign that changes the first-gen’s fabric-covered grille to perforated polycarbonate, the second-gen model features Dolby Atmos, which (in the best-case scenario) can deliver cinema-like sound to the House. My colleague Chris Welch noted, however, that the new soundbar doesn’t have upward-firing speakers, so the effect of Atmos with this soundbar might not be as full as expected.
Looking for a relatively inexpensive gadget that could make a great Valentine’s Day gift? Apple’s second-generation AirPods with a wired charging case are, once again, sold for just $99.99 on Amazon. It’s not a new sale price, but it’s a bargain compared to snagging them directly through Apple, where you’ll pay $129 for the same product.
While these lack the spatial audio feature and improved sound quality of the $169 third-generation AirPods, they have many of the same features. For $100, it’s hard to beat this value, as these wireless headphones can quickly connect and switch between Apple devices you’re connected to, like an Apple Watch, iPad, iPhone, and macOS computer.
Given all the buzz in 2021 about new game consoles being so hard to come by (and therefore scarred on the aftermarket), this $20 Xbox Series S deal is not one to overlook.

Compared to the $499.99 Series X console, the more affordable Series S has fewer features and less built-in storage (512GB versus 1TB). It also lacks a disc drive and targets gameplay at 1440p instead of 4K. Although, despite its more limited offering, it’s a substantial step up in power from the Xbox One S, delivering fast frame rates in many games, including Infinite Halo. Plus, its built-in storage can be expanded with the same fast Seagate accessory used with the Series X.
