Thursday’s top deals include Pixel 3a XL at a new all-time low, plus Samsung Note9 on sale, and Nest Thermostat E. Hit the jump for all the best deals and more in today’s 9to5Toys Lunch Break.

Pixel 3a XL hits an all-time low

B&H offers the Google Pixel 3a XL 64GB Unlocked Android Smartphone for $349. As a comparison, that’s down from the usual $479 price tag and the best we’ve tracked all-time. Today’s deal is the lowest we’ve seen at other retailers like Amazon by $10.

Google’s Pixel 3a XL arrives with a 6-inch OLED display that’s powered by a 2GHz Snapdragon 670 CPU. You’ll find a dual-camera design here, with 12.2MP on the back and 8MP on the selfie side. While new Pixel devices are on the horizon, Google’s 3a lineup remains one of the best Android values out there.

Note 9 drops to $330

Today only, Woot offers various Samsung Android Smartphones in refurbished condition from $60. Headlining is the refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note9 128GB for GSM networks at $330. As a comparison, it originally sold for $1,000 and still fetches as much at Amazon. This is the best price we’ve tracked.

Notable features include a 6.4-inch AMOLED display, bundled S-Pen, alongside 8 and 12MP cameras. 4K video recording at 60fps is certainly a standout as well.

Nest Thermostat E is $133

Verizon Wireless offers the Nest Thermostat E for $133. As a comparison, this thermostat typically goes for $170. Today’s deal beats our previous mention by $6.

Nest Thermostat E offers iOS and Android control, Home/Away functionality, and built-in energy savings. It’s a rather affordable alternative to pricier options on the market that delivers all of the best Nest features like automatic scheduling, without breaking the bank.

Samsung Galaxy Buds+ are $125

B&H is currently offering the Samsung Galaxy Buds+ True Wireless Earbuds bundled with Samsung’s 9W Qi Charging Pad for $125. Offer will be reflected at checkout. Normally you’d pay $149 for the earbuds and $31 for the charger, with today’s discount saving you 30% and marking the best value we’ve seen to date. Equipped with a true wireless design, Samsung’s most recent pair of earbuds rock 11-hours of audio playback per charge, or 22 when you slip them into the companion case. The inclusion of Samsung’s Ambient Sound feature cuts out distracting audio. Qi charging support pairs perfectly with the bundled power pad, which can dish out 9W speeds. We found them to be a no-brainer for Android users in our hands-on review.

TP-Link 2-outlet Kasa smart plug hits $25

Amazon currently offers the TP-Link HS107 2-Outlet Smart Plug for $25 for Prime members or in orders over $25. Typically selling for $30, like you’ll find at B&H right now, today’s offer is the first discount we’ve seen since December and marks a new 2020 low. TP-Link’s smart plug integrates with the company’s line of Kasa accessories, meaning you’ll find Alexa and Assistant voice control alongside scheduling features and more from the smartphone app. It features two individually-controllable outlets, which makes this smart plug perfect for turning on two different lamps, or commanding any combination of other appliances. There’s also no need for an additional hub, making it a solid option for those getting started.
