You may have already seen Engadget posting reviews from our friends at The Wirecutter. Now, from time to time, we’ll also be publishing their recommended deals on some of their top picks. Read on, and strike while the iron is hot — some of these sales could expire mighty soon.
Street Price: $35; MSRP: $57; Deal Price: $28 with code ABYREJAV
Enter code ABYREJAV at checkout and you’ll snag the lowest price we’ve seen for this product. It beats out the last deal by $4.
The Mpow Streambot Y is our FM transmitter pick in our guide on the best Bluetooth kits for car stereos. Nick Guy and Karissa Bell wrote, “While it’ll work for voice calls, this FM transmitter is best suited for music streaming. The design allows you to see which station you’re tuned to and manually (but easily) find a new one if necessary.”
Street Price: $650; MSRP: $750; Deal Price: $600
Despite it being listed as a sale on their site, this is more of a price drop. We’ve been told that it’s likely to stay at this price barring any supply chain issues. The last time we checked, the price was hovering around $650, so a drop to $600 gives you some extra cash to spend on desk accessories.
The Jarvis Bamboo Desk is our pick for best standing desk. Mark Lukach and Nathan Edwards said, “It has a sturdy, reliable frame with a great motor; a huge height range to accommodate even the very tall; a controller with four height presets; and an array of functional, unpretentious accessories.
He added, “It has a seven-year warranty and ships quickly, and you can buy the frame by itself—it adjusts to work with desktops of many different sizes. It’s not perfect, and there are nicer standing desks, but they’re a lot more expensive.”
Street Price: $86; MSRP: $140; Deal Price: $75
This is a few bucks shy of our lowest deal ever on this printer, but it’s still a good price for anyone with Amazon Prime. Before this drop, Amazon had already lowered the price from $90 to $86. This deal is also available at Newegg, but shipping there costs $1. If you need a scanner, the Brother HL-L2380DW is also currently on sale for $100 (from $130).
The Brother HL-L2340DW is our top pick for the best cheap printer. Liam McCabe writes, “All the crucial features you should expect from a document printer in 2014 are here: wireless networking, auto duplexing, and support for important mobile printing standards. Text is crisp, and print speed is as fast as you’d ever need in a home office.”
