28% Off Samsung Chromebook Plus V2
If you’re looking to buy a new laptop but don’t want to shell out over $1,000.00, a Chromebook is a solid option. Chromebooks run off of Chrome OS, which is an internet based operating system, allowing you to ditch most of your hard drive in favor of a cloud-based storage option. This makes the Chromebooks incredibly fast and light. If you’re willing to go all WiFi (and really, when are you not in WiFi these days?) this Samsung Chromebook Plus V2, which also doubles as a tablet, will get the job done and then some.
Get $450 Off the Apple Macbook 12” Display
This deal was too good not to include. Best Buy is offering $450 off this beautiful gold 12-inch Macbook with retina display. Mac users will appreciate that this deal is too good to pass up, and not even Amazon is offering a deal this good on Macbooks during Prime Day.
The Amazon Deals Page is also being updated daily for savings up to 90% off. We spotted everything from electronics to appliances to decor items on sale right now. Many of these “Deals of the Day” are timed sales, so once certain quantities run out, the price goes back up.
