Think spectacular technology

These Walmart sales are still available: Beats headphones, Nest Hub, robot vacuums and cheap laptops

Amazon Prime Day ended Tuesday night, but Walmart kept its “Deals for Days” event going strong through Wednesday. That one is now history too, but there are a handful of solid deals still available. There’s no telling when these straggler deals will expire, so if you see something you want, grab it up fast.


The Gateway brand has returned to life at Walmart with a line of ultra-affordable laptops. This one features a 1080p screen that’s nearly 16 inches, an Intel Core i5 processor, a built-in fingerprint scanner, HDMI and USB-C ports and — most impressively — 16GB of RAM. Not too shabby for under $450.

If you’re looking for the noise-canceling feature of the AirPods Max but are not a fan of the price tag, you gotta jump on these Beats Pro Solo. Originally retailing at $300, these headphones are now half off at Walmart. Featuring the familiar look of the Solo3, the Solo Pro headphones get a few improvements such as the addition of a metal band and memory foam earpads for a much comfier fit than the preceding model. The new drivers inside produce a sound that is, according to CNET’s David Carnoy, “smooth and well-balanced with punchy bass that isn’t boomy.”

The inclusion of Apple’s H1 chip means that the Beats Solo Pro will pair easily with Apple devices just like AirPods. Android users can get this feature via app. Note: These headphones only charge via Lightning port and don’t come with a cable or adapter to be used as a wired headset. Previously an issue at full price, but we can be more forgiving when they’re half off. Lastly these are also compatible with Apple Spatial Audio, released last week, if you happen to subscribe to Apple Music.

This assistant does everything from telling you the weather to play your favorite tunes just by asking “Hey Google.” It won’t get you coffee but there’s always Keurig to help with that. CNET’s own Andrew Gebhart gave this smart home display a big thumbs up in his full review of the Google Nest Hub. You can snatch one up now for $20 off during Walmart’s Prime Day counter-sale.


Robot vacuums can be pretty hit-or-miss. Most entry-level models only have basic navigation and can end up stuck in one corner of your house. The Roborock S4 Max negates that flaw with futuristic lidar navigation and smart room mapping. That’s right, the same technology that automates self-driving cars can now help pick up your mess. Jokes aside, the Roborock S4 Max does have some pretty amazing features. Like the ability to map the layout of your house. You can set no-go zones via the app without the need for a physical fencing system that will clutter up your home. The scheduling function lets you designate the time and specific room you want it to clean, keeping it out of your way while ensuring an immaculate household. The suction power is rated at a respectable 2,000 pascals and the long-lasting battery promises up to 3,000 square feet of cleaning. The S4 model is on sale now for only $310, which is a bit pricier than the cheapest robot vacuum out there, but it sports many features of much higher-end competitors.

Expired deals

Kamado Joe

Kamados are great grills, able to accomplish pretty much anything you’d want from a grill — and with a little skill and practice, they can easily outperform your ordinary gas grill. Kamado Joe’s charcoal grills are some of our favorites, but they can cost upward of a thousand bucks — which makes this discounted Jr. version all the more enticing.


I upgraded to a light and maneuverable stick vacuum last year and I’ve never enjoyed vacuuming so much. I’d never really enjoyed it all before if I’m being honest. I’ve poked around and $99 is a very good price for a stick vacuum with good power and a trusted name behind it. The only drawback of this one is that it’s not cordless but has a very long 27-foot cord so you won’t be searching for new outlets all afternoon.


Switch owners know that many of Nintendo’s best games rarely see sale prices. But that changes today, with solid 33{8c54160eed80eb00ac4f5d74c8785e95142d89daf570f201b81dc7fdc31059f3} discounts for titles like Link’s Awakening, Fire Emblem, Super Mario Odyssey and Luigi’s Mansion 3. What’s even better is that some of these titles are available on sale in cartridge or digital download form.

The recently released Pixel Buds A-Series ($99) earbuds are supposed to be the more affordable alternative to the Pixel Buds 2, Google’s popular wireless earbuds. For a lower price, the plastic-construction Buds A-Series don’t have the Buds 2’s swipe controls or alert features. But right now at Walmart you can actually get the more premium Buds 2 for $20 less than the A-Series. Yes, you can get Google’s popular Pixel Buds 2 for only $79 during the Deals for Days sale. If you’re planning on using these for outdoor activities, the wind reduction and attention alerts are features not to miss out on.

Apple’s iPads usually don’t see huge discounts, even during big sales events. But this is a solid deal for the iPad Mini, and it’s cheaper than competitors like Amazon currently list it.

For the best discount, this iPad comes in gold, with a 7.9-inch screen and 64GB of memory.

Instant Pot

The Instant Pot Viva is an offshoot of the popular Duo model with the addition of sous vide and cake-making (!) options, according to Instantpotology. It does just about everything you’d want or need a multicooker to do including steam, sterilize, porridge, warm and yogurt. The 6-quart size is the most popular: It’s large enough to cook for groups but not so huge that you’ll find it difficult to store. It also has OverHeat Protection, a safety lock to ensure safe pressure cooking.


The AirPods Pro are jumping all over the place price-wise but right now they’re down $23 at Walmart. It’s not the lowest we’ve seen but it’s still a nice savings of $52 off the Apple Store price for some of our favorite earbuds ever.
