Greetings, Arsians! It’s your old pal The Dealmaster, checking in from his Sisyphean quest to find good tech deals with another PSA: eBay is currently holding a one-day sale that takes 15% off nearly everything greater than $25 in its store, many gadgets included.
eBay runs this kind of “flash sale” periodically, letting users apply a coupon code to various items for a limited period of time.
The retailer says that the discount will be capped at $100, so if you try to take 15% off an item that costs more than $666, you won’t save any extra money. The company says the deal will only last until 1am ET on August 9. You can’t use the coupon more than once, according to eBay, but you can apply it to a cart with multiple eligible items. Warranties, protection plans, gift cards, and a few other categories are excluded from the discount, but most others are up for grabs.
It’s worth keeping the usual caveats with eBay in mind, too. Namely, you should only buy from sellers with known names or high user ratings—Best Buy’s storefront and Newegg’s page are generally good places to start. We’ve also seen some retailers raise the standard selling price of bigger-name items like Apple’s AirPods to avoid losing money on the coupon, so try to make sure you’re not applying the coupon to something that has been hiked far over its MSRP.
That said, the breadth of the sale has resulted in a few tech deals worth checking out. We’ve rounded up a few noteworthy options below, although if there’s something else you’ve had your eye on, it might be worth seeing if you can find a good listing for that as well.
