Why we like it

New all-time low price alert: the 9th generation iPad (64GB, WiFi)(opens in a new tab) is on sale for just $249.99 at Best Buy on Jan. 9. That’s $80 off its usual price and a new record low for the 2021 model. Amazon also had it on sale at the same price, briefly, but it already sold out. In other words, you’ll want to grab it ASAP if you’re interested. The 9th gen iPad features Apple’s A13 Bionic chip and a 10.2-inch Retina display that can help power you through most everyday tasks, whether you are streaming Netflix on a long flight or creating digital art at your desk. That’s why it’s our favorite tablet for most people.

Best gaming deal

Why we like it

Through Jan. 19, new Ubisoft customers can get a full month of the subscription service for just a dollar. It usually costs $14.99 per month, so you’ll save $13.99 to kick off a new year of gaming. Ubisoft+ is the game publisher’s own subscription service that works similarly to Xbox Game Pass or EA Play; subscribers get access to over 100 new and archive titles, plus a host of in-game rewards and downloadable content. It’s a great way for you to try out a bunch of new games without actually owning them. Of course, after your first month, your subscription will renew at full price, so you’ll have a decision to make: keep trying out new games every month for $14.99 or call it quits and buy them the old-fashioned way.
