Pixel 6a sees launch day deal with bundled Amazon credit
Yesterday was Pixel 6a launch day, and if you didn’t score a pre-order on Google’s latest smartphone, there are plenty of ways to save following day one. First up, Amazon is now bundling the unlocked Google Pixel 6a 128GB in all three colors with a $50 gift card for $449. That’s the list price on the handset, but a free $50 to spend courtesy of the retailer.
Google Pixel 6a arrives as the brand’s latest handset, taking a slightly more affordable approach from last year’s 6/Pro handsets. There’s still the same Google Tensor chipset at the center of the experience, with a 6.1-inch FHD+ 60Hz display being paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. You can also expect to enjoy 24-hour battery life, as well as all of the usual photograph features packed into the 12MP wide and 12MP ultrawide lenses around back. Our hands-on review offers a better idea of what to expect, as well.

Samsung Galaxy S21 5G refurb falls to $390
Woot is kicking off its latest certified refurbished Samsung Galaxy smartphone sale for today only, discounting a selection of previous-generation handsets in the process starting at $115. At the top of the list, Samsung’s unlocked Galaxy S21 5G 128GB is down to $390. Originally fetching $800, you’re looking at a new all-time low of $410 off while also beating our previous mention by $69.
This may not be the new Galaxy S22 model that just hit the scene earlier in the year, but Samsung’s now previous-generation entry-level Galaxy S21 smartphone still packs a punch. There’s a 6.2-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2x screen that’s backed by an up to 120Hz refresh rate. Powered by the Snapdragon 888 processor, you’ll enjoy all-day battery life as well as 128GB of storage and a triple-sensor camera array around back. In our hands-on review, we found that it made all of the right compromises.
Jabra Elite 7 Active earbuds pack ANC into a rugged design
Amazon currently offers the Jabra Elite 7 Active ANC Earbuds for $120. Down from $180, today’s offer is the second-best we’ve seen to date at $60 off, while coming within $4 of the all-time low set once before back in May. This is also $20 under our previous mention.
Wrapped in a rubberized veneer exterior, the Elite 7 Active earbuds from Jabra are on the more rugged side to live up to the fitness-focused design. Powering the ANC experience are 6mm drivers which pair with 8-hour battery life that is supplemented by another 30 hours thanks to the charging case. Oh and don’t forget the onboard access to Google Assistant that rounds out the package.
Hisense’s 55-inch U7G 4K 120Hz Android TV with HDMI 2.1 hits $500
Amazon is currently discounting the Hisense 55-inch U7G QLED 4K Android TV to $500. Normally fetching $700 or so, today’s offer adds some extra savings onto the recent $600 sale price in order to mark a return to the all-time low. This is the best in over a month and only the third time dropping this low.
Sure this is last year’s model from Hisense, but the U7G model hit the scene back in the summer of 2021 with a series of features that are still notable today — especially with the savings attached. Its 4K QLED panel is backed by a 120Hz native refresh rate, which pairs perfectly with its pair of HDMI 2.1 ports for hooking up a PS5 or Xbox Series X. Though the built-in Android TV features are sure to deliver most of the content you’ll need, with access to popular streaming services on top of Google Assistant features. You can get a better idea of what to expect in our review of the U8G model.
