Save money with Rakuten’s site-wide sale and Walmart’s Nintendo Switch discount

Only the best deals on Verge-approved gadgets get the Good Deals stamp of approval, so if you're looking for a deal on your next gadget or gift from major retailers like Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, Target, and more, this is the place to be.

Japanese e-commerce giant Rakuten is hosting another site-wide discount, and you can save 15 percent on select products when you use the offer code SAVE15 at checkout. Promos like these happen fairly regularly, and the offer code typically works on most of the site’s products. Here are a few deals to get you started:

  • Fitbit Charge 3 is $127.46 with the code applied at checkout (usually $149.95)
  • Xbox One X bundled with 12-month Xbox Live subscription is $349 after the code is applied (usually $409)
  • GoPro Hero 7 Black is $301.15 (usually $349.99)
  • Microsoft Surface Go (8GB RAM, 128GB of storage) bundled with a Black Type Cover is $539 (usually $599)

Today, Apple announced a new $399 iPad mini and a $499 iPad Air, and both include the A12 Bionic processor found in the latest iPhone models as well as Apple Pencil support. If you’re content with a slightly older iPad that features the A10 processor, the sixth-generation model is far more affordable at $249.99 from Amazon, and it also supports the Apple Pencil.
