About this Deal
HUNTING THROUGH DEALS has been one of the few ways the WIRED Gear team has been staying sane during quarantine, specifically finding discounts on tech devices that help us work from home better or sales on home goods that improve our living spaces. If you're feeling the same way, hopefully some of the picks below will help you too.
And don't forget, please wear a mask when you're heading outside and will be near others.
Home and Mattress Deals
If you're not sure what kind of mattress to get, read our guide to the Best Mattresses for advice and recommendations. Also, check out our weighted blanket guide for something to help you keep calm.
Lenovo Smart Clock for $50 ($30 off): We really like this smart display. It's a great option for your bedside table because it doesn't have a camera. It's on the low end of the smart display price range already, so this is a good sale if you've been contemplating buying one. You can read this story to learn more.
Helix Sleep Midnight Luxe Hybrid Queen Mattress for $1,599 ($200 off): Helix has a few offers going on, and each comes with two free pillows. Get $100 off any mattress with code FOJ100, $150 off a purchase of $1,250 with code FOJ150, and $200 off a purchase of $1,750 with code FOJ200. The Midnight Luxe Hybrid is our favorite of all the mattresses we tested.
Leesa Hybrid Queen Mattress for $1,424 ($275 off): We love Leesa's hybrid mattress the most, but all of the company's mattresses are 15 percent off right now.
Birch Natural Queen Mattress for $1,299 ($200 off): This mattress is made by Helix, so it's unsurprising we like it a lot. It's made of natural latex and wool, so it's eco-friendly, and it's bouncy without feeling too squishy. Use code FOJ200 to get $200 off.
Casper Original Hybrid Queen Mattress for $995 ($100 off): You can get $100 off with code BUDGETSAVVY. That same code will also take $200 off a Nova or Wave mattress, but we haven't tested either of them yet.
Layla Weighted Blanket Queen-Size for $129 ($30 off): Layla's weighted blanket is a great option for two people to share. It comes in various sizes and 15, 20, or 25 pound options.
Purple + Gravity Weighted Blanket for $239 ($60 off): This is technically the heaviest blanket we tested at 35 pounds (it only comes in one size and weight), but because it's distributed over a larger area, it doesn't feel as heavy as you might think. That will either be a good or bad thing, depending on your preferences. But it's soft and cozy and it will also work great for two people.
Hug Sleep's Sleep Pod for $90 ($20 off): If you want relaxing constriction without the weight and heat, you should try the Sleep Pod. It's surprisingly relaxing to crawl into this at night.
Riley Home Belgian linen collection for 20 percent off: Always wanted to give linen sheets a spin? With code SUMMERLINEN20, you'll get 20 percent off Riley's linen sheets, duvet covers, and shams. Bundles that are already discounted are also included.
We have a ton of audio gear roundups and reviews you should check out, like our guides to the Best Headphones, Best Wireless Earbuds, Best Portable Speakers, and Best Soundbars.
JBL's Club One Headphones for $250 ($100 off) and Live 300 TWS Earbuds for $120 ($30 off): This JBL sale starts Sunday, July 19 and runs until July 26. We haven't tested either of these devices, but we've tested JBL gear before—they generally sound pretty good and haven't given us many issues in the past.
JBL's Pulse 4 for $150 ($100 off), Boombox 2 for $430 ($70 off), and Jr Pop for $20 ($20 off): If you need a Bluetooth speaker, these three options are also included in the JBL sale starting July 19. If you're looking for a soundbar, the Bar 5.1 is on sale for $400, which is $300 off.
Anker Soundcore Liberty Air True Wireless Headphones for $30 ($43 off): These Anker buds have their fair share of issues (folks have complained about the microphone quality, among other things), but for wireless earbuds, you can't beat them for the price. Use code EMCDNGN35 for the white earbuds or MKTCR5 for the black ones.
Phone Accessory Deals
Select Totallee Cases for $7 ($28 off): If you have an older phone and need an ultra-thin case, Totallee is one of our favorites and is offering a limited amount of select cases for just the cost of shipping with code GIFTED. Shipping is typically $7 to $9, so this is a great deal on an ultra-thin case. Just don't expect much in the way of protection. This deal applies to cases (excluding leather options) for the following phones: iPhones X, XR, XS, and XS Max; Pixel 3, 3 XL, 3A, 3A XL; and Galaxy S10E, S10, S10+.
Otterbox Cases for 10 Percent Off Plus Free Shipping: If you'd rather get a super-protective Otterbox case, the company is offering 10 percent off plus free shipping with code FRN10. We particularly like the Otter + Pop Symmetry Series Cases for both iPhones and Samsung Galaxy phones.
Moment Battery Case for $40 ($50 off): Moment's summer sale is offering up to 60 percent off certain items, like its Battery Case (we rated it 7/10) and lenses.
Verizon Deals for New Customers: If you're considering switching your network to Verizon, there are a few solid deals starting July 23. If you trade in select phones plus add a new unlimited line, you can get an iPhone 11. If you trade in select phones, you can get $700 off some Android phones, plus you can get a Verizon Stream TV. Teachers can get $30 a line for unlimited plans and students can get up to $25 off a month for unlimited plans.
