There’s a wide swath of deals available on various avenues of tech, including earbuds, smart home accessories, TVs, and laptops.
Presidents Day, one of the smaller holidays inexplicably linked to major sales promotions, has officially arrived. While the US holiday is meant to honor the historic legacy of our highest office, capitalism dictates that it’s now just about deals on stuff like TVs and maybe a day off (if you’re lucky).
Well, thankfully, there are some worthwhile sales going on — and not just on mattresses or whatever your local small businesses are hawking. We’re currently seeing a variety of deals, like $50 saving on the second-gen AirPods Pro and Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II (two of the best wireless earbuds in the game). Samsung’s 65-inch S95B OLED TV, meanwhile, is also discounted to half off its original MSRP. There are even some fun, extra-geeky deals to take advantage of, including a Best Buy deal that takes $38 off Nerf’s replica blaster from The Mandalorian. So let’s dive in and hail to the deals.
- The standard Roborock S7 is on sale for $429.99 ($220 off) at Walmart, Wellbots, and direct from Roborock until February 28th. It’s the cheapest way to get the S7, which is the best hybrid robot vacuum / mop you can get, complete with lidar and floor mapping. Note, however, that its base configuration does not come with an auto-empty dock. Read our robot vacuum buying guide.
This mopping / vacuum hybrid robot is one of the best double-duty vacuums on the market. Its sonic-mopping tech scrubs your floors but lifts up the mop to vacuum your carpets without getting them wet. In its Plus configuration, it comes with an auto-emptying cleaning and charging station — the “Rock Dock.”
- The higher-end Roborock S7 MaxV adds obstacle avoidance to the mix (for avoiding things like charging cables and pet poop) and is on sale for $649.99 ($210 off) at Amazon, Walmart, and direct from Roborock. Sadly, however, it costs more than twice as much for the MaxV Ultra configuration, which comes with an advanced cleaning station. Read our robot vacuum buying guide.
The Echo Show 8 is the midsize smart display in Amazon’s current Echo lineup and can be used to display the weather, news, calendars, grocery lists, and more.

- LG’s latest Gram 16 is on sale at BuyDig for $799 ($598 off) with 16GB of RAM, 512GB of storage, and a 12th-Gen Core i5-1240P processor. It’s a lightweight machine despite its size, with a high-res display and good performance. Read our review of the LG Gram 17 (2022).
