You can save $200 on a refurbished second-gen Sonos Beam

You can save $200 on a refurbished second-gen Sonos Beam

While the world of deals is about to heat up with Fourth of July sales and Amazon’s upcoming Prime Day event, there are some great discounts you can take advantage of right now. For starters, Sonos is selling refurbished models of its second-gen Beam in black or white for $299, which is $100 off its usual refurb price and $200 cheaper than buying the soundbar in new condition.

That’s as cheap as you’re going to find the latest version of Sonos’ midrange soundbar, which is a lot like its first-gen version but with small improvements like Dolby Atmos and low-latency eARC support. The Beam is a good all-around performer if you want a simple soundbar that sounds great for its size, doesn’t clutter up your space with extra speakers or subwoofers, and doubles as a smart Wi-Fi speaker for streaming music within the Sonos ecosystem. And for those that have the space, the Beam can be expanded upon with other Sonos speakers like the Sub Mini or even Ikea’s Symfonisk lamps to create a modest surround sound home theater setup that doesn’t have wires and clutter everywhere.

As good a deal as the Beam is, if it’s still out of your price range, check out the refurbished Ray, which Sonos is selling for just $164 ($115 off a new model). The Ray is the entry point if you’re looking to pick up a Sonos soundbar, and while the 22-inch speaker doesn’t sound as expansive as either Beam, it’s still formidable for its size. Its biggest limitation is that it relies on optical audio and lacks HDMI ports.

A few more deals almost as bright as some fireworks

Best Buy is selling the last-gen iPad Air with an M1 chip and expanded 256GB of storage for $499.99 ($250 off). The 10.9-inch Air of 2022 may have been eclipsed by this year’s 11- and 13-inch M2 models, but based on our review, the new models are a little underwhelming compared with the more impressive M4 iPad Pro and recently price-slashed 10th-gen iPad. As for the 2022 Air, it’s still an excellent tablet with a good screen and plenty of performance headroom. Plus, 256GB gives you lots of app storage, making the current Best Buy deal a good value.

The Anchor, an under-desk headphone hanger, is on sale for $11.95 ($3 off) at Amazon. It may not be a huge discount, but it’s about as cheap as it gets for Elevation Lab’s convenient way to stow away your headphones. You just peel the 3M adhesive, stick the Anchor to the bottom of your desk, and you can hang a pair of headphones so they’re always at the ready. It even supports the weight of Apple’s hefty AirPods Max.
