We start April Fool’s Day with a very serious deal. For today only, Best Buy is slashing the price of the unlocked Samsung Galaxy S22 by $100. The 128GB and 256GB models of the S22 are currently discounted to $699.99 and $749.99, respectively. Just note that this discount only applies to the standard model of the S22, not the S22 Plus or Ultra. You also don’t need to activate this phone when you buy it, just be sure to select “activate later” before adding it to your cart. This is the first discount we’ve seen on Samsung’s latest smartphone model since its release, making it a great upgrade opportunity.
The S22 features an impressive array of specs, including a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, a 50MP primary rear camera that reviewer Allison Johnson says delivers “top-notch” results, and a 10MP front-facing camera. With features like these and more, it’s no wonder we consider the Galaxy S22 the default phone for Android users, despite the less than stellar battery life. All in all, it’s a great deal on a fast phone that has exceptional build quality. Read our review.
HP’s budget Pavilion Aero laptop just got a little cheaper. Typically $999.99, you can currently get a capable configuration on the HP store for just $749.99, its lowest price ever. The lightweight 13-inch HP Pavilion Aero is pavilion in name only, offering excellent specs and build quality at a competitive price.
This model of the Aero 13 is equipped with an AMD Ryzen 5800U processor, 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage out of the box, with the possibility of adding up to an additional 1 TB using from a microSD card. While its reliance on integrated AMD graphics means it can’t handle a lot of games, the laptop’s octa-core processor means the Aero 13 should be able to handle a variety of apps. While not a dealbreaker at this price, it’s worth noting that the Aero 13 comes with a significant amount of bloatware pre-installed, which will deliver a massive amount of popups until you completely uninstall it.

Gaming monitor deals that are this well don’t come every day. Right now, the MSI Optix 32-inch curved QHD gaming monitor is at its best price ever. This particular monitor usually retails for $359.99, but it’s on sale at Adorama and Amazon for $289.99. Currently, this is one of the best prices you can find for a gaming monitor with these specs, especially from a brand like MSI.
MSI’s MAG321CQR, as it’s officially called, is equipped with many of the features you’d expect from a mid-range gaming monitor. This includes 1440p resolution, 144Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, and AMD FreeSync adaptive sync support for AMD GPUs, all of which combine to create a gaming experience that should be looks great and works properly. The back of the monitor is equipped with RGB lighting, but more importantly, it has a wide variety of connectivity options. It includes a pair of HDMI 2.0 ports, a single DisplayPort connection, a pair of USB-A passthrough ports with data transfer option, and a 3.5mm audio jack. Although the monitor is VESA mount compatible, the stand it comes with is height, tilt, and swivel adjustable.
Today you can find discounts on a pair of serpentine gaming chairs from Razer. Both the Razer Iskur X and the Razer Enki are selling for less than their usual price of $399.99. The Iskur X is currently discounted to $249.99 at Best Buy and Amazon, while the newer Enki is on sale for $349.99 at Best Buy and GameStop. Both of these models have been sitting at this price (pun intended) for about a month, but who knows? They may soon return to full price.
As for which model is best for you, there are two big differences between them to consider. The Iskur mainly uses synthetic leather, while the Enki uses a mix of synthetic leather and fabric for the seat. The Iskur X also lacks lumbar support and head cushioning, while the Enki comes with a headrest and lumbar support built into the back of the chair.
While choosing a gaming chair can be a very subjective process – and we haven’t had a chance to try them out ourselves – it’s rare to find gaming chairs with similar features at a better price. . By comparison, many of Secretlab’s gaming chairs can cost upwards of $500, even when they’re on sale. Secretlab has a better warranty and return policy, but the standard three-year warranty on Razer’s gaming chairs is still pretty robust.
If you’re looking to buy a Chromebook, there’s still time to grab the biggest discount we’ve seen yet on Samsung’s eye-catching red or gray Galaxy Chromebook 2. Normally, the top-end configuration equipped with an Intel Core i3-10110U processor sells for $699.99, but you can currently find this lightweight laptop on sale for $549.99 on Amazon and Best Buy. Out of the box, this configuration comes equipped with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage; but the latter spec can be expanded with a microSD card.
Design-wise, the 13-inch touchscreen offers 1080p resolution and can turn into a tablet thanks to its 2-in-1 design. While its specs don’t lift much weight in terms of processing power, the Galaxy Chromebook 2 also has a 3.5mm audio jack and a pair of USB-C ports that can support external peripherals and displays if you need them.

The 2020 iPad Air 64GB fourth generation was originally sold for $599.99 but is currently discounted to $469.99 on Amazon with a coupon that is applied at checkout. While this price isn’t unheard of, it’s still one of the best prices we’ve seen for the Wi-Fi-equipped iPad Air. This discount only applies to the gray and green colorways of the light Apple panel but remains one of the best discounts on this device to date. While the iPad Air recently received a 2022 update that included Apple’s M1 processor, the 2020 model still has plenty of power under the hood, thanks to its A14 Bionic processor.
This model of iPad Air has an excellent 10.9-inch screen, a 12 MP rear camera and a 7 MP front camera for video chatting. A few other notable selling points include a USB-C connection for charging and compatibility with the latest iPad Pro accessories, such as the second-generation Apple Pencil and Apple Magic Keyboard.
