LIVE: 2021 Best Holiday Deals – Nintendo Switch, MacBook Air and more
Even though I like supporting my local cafes, there are times when I’m lazy and just want a quick cup of coffee without having to go outside. That’s where the Keurig K-Mini comes in. It can brew a 6 to 12 ounce cup of coffee. Plus, it’s small enough to fit in any kitchen, and it takes a spot on our list of the best Keurig coffee makers. The downside is that you’ll have to fill the water tank for each cup you brew, but if you want a bigger machine, several Keurigs are on sale starting at $ 69 on Amazon.

Well, guys. Here we are. Walmart’s PS5 / XSX drop is just minutes away. We have a dedicated PS5 live blog covering this afternoon’s restocking, but it bears repeating given that these consoles are on so many people’s shopping lists. Today’s restocking begins at 12 p.m. ET and is only available to Walmart Plus members. (You can register with Walmart through this link).

What is Christmas without the old-fashioned toy bargains. Walmart has plenty of these with discounts on everything from classic board games to battery-powered kids’ ATVs. To be fair, a lot of retailers have toys for sale, but I am highlighting Walmart’s sale because it’s the biggest one I’ve seen so far. Plus, if you’re on a budget, there are plenty of goodies under $ 25, such as this Star Wars The Child plush doll on sale for $ 13.99 (pictured).

Hi all! Deals editor Louis picks up our live vacation blog for future posts. So I’m kicking off with this great MacBook Air deal on Amazon. They take away $ 100 on the base model and $ 150 on the 512GB model. I don’t own this machine, but I did own the 11 inch MacBook Air the old fashioned way and absolutely loved this machine. It lasted me over 4 years. I need a new laptop and my eyes are on the Air. (Although the 14in Pro looks pretty cool too). In our MBA review, we called the Editor’s Choice laptop the “computer revolution”. Not only is it in stock, it will be shipped in time for Christmas.
MacBook Air M1 (256 GB): was $ 999 now $ 899 @ Amazon
MacBook Air M1 (512 GB): was $ 1,249 now $ 1,099 @ Amazon
Nintendo Switch stock has been incredibly hard to find lately – and we’re not just talking about the new OLED Switch. But the good news is that Walmart currently has a stock of the base console and has a pretty good holiday deal on it as well.
Get this Nintendo Switch bundle for $ 299 from Walmart and you’ll also get a Switch carrying case and a one-year Nintendo Switch Online membership. Membership alone normally costs $ 19 per year, making it one of the best Nintendo Switch deals available right now.

We’re big fans of Fitbit fitness trackers and smartwatches here at Tom’s Guide – and that means we’re big fans of Fitbit deals too, especially during the holiday season.
Here’s one that caught our attention recently: The Fitbit Charge 5 currently only costs $ 129 on Amazon, a savings of $ 50. Fitbit’s latest fitness tracker comes with built-in GPS, a bright always-on display, and a host of high-tech features including an Electrodermal Activity Sensor (EDA) and Electrocardiogram (ECG) sensor, it is therefore worth the detour.
But beware: when it fell to this price on Black Friday, it sold out quickly – so grab it now before it’s too late.

Some Cyber Week bargains are still around. For example, the Garmin Forerunner 945 still only costs $ 259 – that’s a savings of over $ 200!
Garmin designed this smartwatch for serious runners and triathletes. In our review, we praised it for its excellent battery life and slim and light design, which is great for multiple sports. It lets you track your performance, play music, check email / phone notifications, and generally do everything the excellent Garmin Fenix 5 does for a cheaper price. And while it’s still on sale, you can get one for even less than usual.

There are few home appliances that can make you feel like you’re living in the future like a robot vacuum cleaner. It’s a robot! It’s vacuuming! Did the Jetsons predict this one?
The Shark EV is more than an average robot vacuum, however: its base can hold weeks of debris, and it’s bagless and empties automatically. Of course, it will also take care of itself, and if you decide to supervise its actions, it can be controlled with Google Assistant.
Right now, the Shark EV is slashed by $ 200 at Walmart, which means there’s no better time to join the robot revolution.

Winter is coming, as a certain book / TV show would say, and that means you might be on the hunt for a new coat.
Fortunately, Marmot has a massive winter sale right now. The retailer enjoys a discount of up to 60% on winter clothing for men, women and children. You can also use the promo code “HOLIDAY” to benefit from a 30% reduction on a selection of items. (The promo code is displayed on eligible items).

Save $ 460! Peloton exercise bikes are rightly at the top of many people’s holiday shopping lists, but they’re also quite expensive and often don’t see much in the way of discounts. There are alternatives, however – and the Echelon Connect EX3 is well worth it.
At present, Walmart has the Echelon Connect EX3 on sale for only $ 539. That’s a massive savings of $ 460 and over 45% off the original price. And don’t worry if it sells at Walmart, because Amazon has the same great deal for the holidays.
The Connect EX3 gives you both live and on-demand workouts, whether it’s a spin, yoga, boxing or Pilates class, for a much lower initial cost. There’s no built-in screen, but there is a mount that lets you put a phone or tablet on the handlebars – and let’s face it, you’ll save enough here to buy an iPad to go with it.

We’ve seen a lot of great deals on AirPods lately, but in terms of percentage savings, you can’t beat this one on the second-gen Airpods.
For a limited time, Amazon is offering Apple AirPods for $ 99. That’s $ 59 off, or 37%, and one of the best AirPods deals ever. Although they hit $ 89 last month, this is still an epic price tag that you probably won’t see again until the next holiday season. Better yet, buy them now and they’ll arrive before Christmas.
2nd Generation AirPods: was $ 159 now $ 99 @ Amazon
36% reduction! Amazon is always a good place to look for the best vacation deals, especially when it comes to their own devices. It certainly is right now, as you can currently buy the excellent Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max for just $ 34. It’s $ 20 off for what we consider to be one of the best streaming devices on the planet.
The Fire TV Stick 4K Max streams 4K content from virtually any streaming service you can think of, including Netflix, Disney Plus, Hulu, and, of course, Amazon Prime Video. It’s also 40% faster than the slightly cheaper Fire TV Stick 4K – and we think it’s a performance upgrade well worth the $ 5 difference.

Let’s start with a lot on a device that rarely gets a price cut: the Apple Watch SE. Right now, you can pick up the Apple Watch SE for $ 239 on Amazon. That’s a savings of $ 40 off the regular price of Apple’s entry-level laptop, and applies to the 40mm-only version with GPS.
Watch SE offers fitness, heart rate, and sleep tracking for health-conscious users, pairs with AirPods for phone-free listening, and transmits all your notifications from your iPhone to your wrist for a more convenient viewing. You also get a three-month trial of Apple Fitness Plus, which makes it an even better deal than it initially looks.
