We’re feeling lucky as we inch closer to St. Patrick’s Day weekend — mostly because we found some big discounts on even bigger brands. If you’re itching to do some shopping, don’t pay full price. Check out our top deals of the day and keep some extra money in your pocket.
On March 16, we’re seeing brands like Apple, Amazon, Arlo, AeroGarden, Cricut, Dyson, and more slash their prices. In fact, some of our favorite products that have earned the coveted Mashable Choice badge of honor are just shy of their lowest prices ever at top retailers. There’s no need to scour the web, though; we’ve already done the hard part for you. All you have to do is scroll to shop our top picks of the day. Happy saving!
Although it’s from 2020, the M1 MacBook Air is still readily available on Apple’s website, so it’s certainly not outdated. In fact, we love this little powerhouse (as noted by the Mashable Choice badge of honor) — particularly for “Apple loyalists looking to upgrade from an older model.” The M1 chip may not be as impressive as the M2, but it can still power everyday tasks, photo and video editing, and coding like a champ. Our favorite factor, however, is its fanless design. In other words, no blast-off sound will alarm you when you have too many tabs open. Regularly going for $999 for the base model, it’s currently down to a super affordable $799.99 at Amazon and Best Buy. That’s just 99 cents shy of its all-time low Prime Day pricing.
Our top pick for a doorbell camera, the Arlo Essential video doorbell is an all-seeing HD camera that serves as a virtual doorman with a major 180-degree FOV, motion alerts, automated messages, and a Foresight feature. It works seamlessly with your current smart devices and uses your existing doorbell’s wiring as its power supply. At $79.99, it’s just five bucks shy of its lowest price ever at Amazon. If you have a little more wiggle room in your budget, there’s also a wireless version on sale for $99.99.
For gamers looking to explore new titles from anywhere at any time, a gaming laptop is a necessity. But these powerful devices aren’t cheap. For beginners on a budget, this Acer 516 GE cloud gaming Chromebook is a solid entry-level option — and it’s on sale for only $449 at Best Buy. It offers a cloud gaming experience, which gives you easy access to thousands of games without worrying about your hardware going out of date or running out of storage. The 516 GE also features up to nine hours of battery life, a multi-zone RGB and anti-ghosting keyboard, and a narrow-bezel display with 100 percent sRGB coverage and a 120Hz refresh rate. It’s not going to wow more advanced gamers, but it does pack a little punch in a portable package.
