There’s nothing quite like saving money on the stuff you want to buy. It feels like you’re getting away with something when you manage to snag a great deal on an item you already wanted! Let’s take a look at some of today’s best deals to help you save a couple of bucks on the best gadgets.

MacBook Air

It’s back-to-school season, and that means many students need new laptops for studying and completing schoolwork. Many students of the arts prefer MacBook computers because Apple’s operating system lends itself well to creative endeavors. However, Apple’s products are also rather expensive, usually coming in significantly pricier than some Windows-powered alternatives.

The best way to sidestep this high price is to wait for sales. And, if that sounds like you, you’re in luck: there’s a sale right now on the 13.3-inch MacBook Air, in both 256 and 512 GB capacities. The first is on sale at Best Buy right now for $950, while the second is discounted to $1,100. That’s $50 off the MSRP on both entries, making this a sizable discount for students!

Oculus Quest 2

Many virtual reality enthusiasts insist that VR is the future of everything from video games to conference calls. If the idea of a virtual avatar sitting in a work meeting even though you’re actually at home is up your alley, you might be interested in a VR headset. The main drawback to VR right now is just how prohibitively expensive the hardware is.

Thankfully for enthusiasts, however, many brands of VR helmets are becoming more affordable. Take today’s deal on an Oculus Quest 2, for instance. The definitely-not-dorky-looking headset is on sale for just $299 from Amazon today, a full fifty percent of the original Oculus Quest’s launch price back in 2016.

Galaxy Watch 4

If you want a smartwatch but hate the square face design of an Apple Watch, then you might want to get your hands on a Galaxy Watch. Galaxy Watches use a circular face design that looks much more like a traditional wristwatch than the high-tech appearance of an Apple Watch.

For those looking for a sleek new wristwatch that also manages to have stealth “high-tech” features stashed away, the Galaxy Watch 4 is the watch for you. The stylish piece of wearable tech is on sale now at Samsung’s site for just $115, though if you want the “Classic” edition, with a stainless steel casing and a rotating bezel, it’ll run you $215.
