Samsung T9 portable SSD

Retail therapy is just what the doctor ordered to get you through the week. Amazon has some pretty impressive deals on brands like Samsung, Logitech, and JBL to kick off the month of May. No, there’s no big shopping event going on. These are just deals for the sake of deals — and there’s certainly nothing wrong with that.

We’ve rounded up the top Amazon deals of the day for May 1 below to help you decide what’s worth your hard-earned cash. And be sure to check out our picks from April 29 and April 30 as well — some of those are still live.

Our top pick

Just released at the end of March as an Amazon-exclusive upgraded tablet, the new Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is on sale for just $249.99 — that’s 24% off and its biggest discount to date. While the new iteration of the S6 Lite has the same basic design, S-Pen, screen, and RAM as the previous version, its processor has been updated to the new Exynos processor and it comes with Android 14 out of the box. The previous iteration is one of our favorite tablets for kids — and we can only expect that the extra boost of processing power will make it even better. Both the 64GB and 128GB versions are on sale, but the savings are bigger for the former.

Your summer soundtrack deserves to be heard through a top-notch speaker and the JBL Xtreme 3 makes a sweet companion. Thanks to its waterproof design and massive 15-hour battery life, you can prop it up poolside and blast your tunes all day and night. It packs four improved drivers and two bass radiators, which help to deliver a bolder, more immersive stereo sound than the previous generation. Plus, it’s PartyBoost-compatible, so you can pair it with other speakers to really get things bumping. As of May 1, the JBL Xtreme 3 is just $179.99 at Amazon — that’s 53% in savings and the lowest price to date.

If a reliable mouse that won’t break the bank is on your wishlist, check out this deal on the Logitech G305. Technically a gaming mouse, the G305 is super quick and responsive and lasts up to 250 hours on a single AA battery. Even though it’s built for gaming, it also serves as a solid mouse for your everyday WFH tasks. Plus, it’s totally wireless, so you can easily bring it on the go without worrying about an annoying cord tethering you to one spot. As for gaming features, there are six programmable buttons, a hero sensor, and a lightweight design (only 99 grams) for swift maneuverability. Usually $49.99, it’s on sale for just $29.99 at Amazon as of May 1 — that’s 40% in savings and only the second time it’s dropped this low in the past year.

Sick of deleting your old content to make space for new content? You need a portable SSD — and this deal from Samsung gives you the opportunity to grab one at 42% off. The Samsung T9 portable SSD packs a massive 4TB of space in a lightweight (4.3 ounces) little box (just 0.3 by 3.5 by 2.4 inches). While we haven’t had a chance to test it for ourselves, our buds at PCMag (which is owned by Mashable’s publisher, Ziff Davis) awarded it a 4.5-star “outstanding” rating. “The Samsung Portable SSD T9 achieves blazing throughput speeds when connected to a compatible PC, making it a go-to external SSD for content creators,” the review concludes. Typically $549.99, you can snag the T9 on sale at Amazon for just $319.99 as of May 1 — that’s a savings of 42% and its lowest price since February.
