We’re on the verge of several spring holidays, but none of them are particularly shopping-oriented. That doesn’t mean there aren’t great deals out there, though. In fact, we found a surprising number of discounts in a wide variety of categories this weekend, from the best deals on gaming gear to sex toys, office chairs, tech, and cookware.

Coway’s Airmega 400 air purifier is a welcome addition to any home as allergy season starts to ramp up. It’s on the bigger end of air purifiers and is best suited for large spaces, as it can cycle the air in a 1,560 square-foot room twice in an hour. Plus, it’s surprisingly quiet. Read our Best Air Purifiers guide for more.
Apple’s latest iPad Air (8/10, WIRED Recommends) does not reinvent the wheel. It still has a 10.9-inch LCD screen with support for the second-gen Apple Pencil. It does, however, include Apple’s powerful M1 processor chip — the very same chip that powers the latest MacBooks. It’s a powerful and versatile tablet, but as we point out in our review, it’s held back by a few software quirks. This discount is on the 256-gigabyte model, but the 64-GB version is also on sale for 570 ($ 30 off).
Samsung’s latest Galaxy S22 range (9/10, WIRED Recommends) features rock-solid Android phones for anyone looking for the best hardware on the market. The S22 is the smallest of the lot yet delivers nearly the same goods, including all-day battery life, great performance, and a gorgeous screen. It’s what we recommend for most people, but the other two models are also on sale. The Galaxy S22 + is $ 900 ($ 100 off) and adds a larger screen and a longer-lasting battery. The Galaxy S22 Ultra is 1,100 ($ 100 off) and boasts a fantastic 10x optical zoom — great if you want to take sharp close-ups of your kid on the soccer field. Check out our Best Galaxy S22 Cases and Accessories guide for protection options.
The Factory Seconds Sale lets you nab All-Clad cookware for an affordable price. We love All-Clad’s pots and pans. They’re long-lasting and rarely go on sale. That said, there are a few caveats. You need to enter an email address to see the deals. The deals are also on, as the name suggests, factory seconds. These are imperfect, with minor blemishes or damaged packaging, but they should still function perfectly fine.
We told you about this sale earlier this weekand it’s still alive and kicking for a few colors (also available at Walmart). This is the latest Apple Watch (8/10, WIRED Recommends) with all the fancy health and fitness features you could want, including an electrocardiogram, blood oxygen tracking, sleep tracking, and improved fall detection. Just know the battery will last only a little more than a day. Read our Best Smartwatches guide for more.
This chair is one of our favorites and is ideal for anyone who spends a lot of time at a work desk. You won’t need to fiddle with knobs and settings to get it just right for your body — the Freedom Headrest does it all for you. All you need to do is sit down, and it’ll cradle your body intuitively. It’s also one of the most eco-friendly office chairs out there.
Make sure you choose the Medley upholstery option to see the lowest price possible. The Embody is a legendary chair In the world of office ergonomics, but it can be an acquired taste — as in, it might take a few weeks for your body to truly adapt and enjoy this chair. But once you do, you’ll never be able to go back to another. It features some of the most adjustable components of any of the chairs we tested. The upright backrest has even helped one of our editors get over some back pain incurred by sitting in a cheap gaming chair for too long. The Embody has spiked in price over the past year, so this is one of the lowest we’ve seen it go for recently. It’s a buy-it-for-life kind of product, and that’s reflected in its 12-year warranty.
A less expensive version of one of our favorite hand grinders, the Hario Skerton Plus packs many of the same features you get out of the Skerton Pro. It’s a conical burr grinder, easy to disassemble for cleaning, and its blades are sharp and powerful so you don’t have to work too hard to grind your coffee. It’s a bit less steady than the Pro version when you’re grinding, and a little smaller, but it’s still a good option.
Razer’s Basilisk Ultimate is a wireless gaming mouse that packs all of Razer’s signature style into a sleek package that doesn’t get in your way or bog you down with too many buttons. It features 11 programmable buttons laid into the body of the mouse in such a way that you’ll barely notice they’re there. The Chroma lighting is slick and stylish, as usual, and the build quality of the mouse is rock-solid. It’s been one of them my daily drivers for over a year now. It also boasts a 100-hour battery life — We’ve seen about 60 to 80 hours with heavy gaming, but 100 is easy to hit with less intense everyday use.
It never hurts to have more external storage space to keep an archive of old photos, media, and files securely in your own home. Seagate’s 8-terabyte external hard drive has enough space that you’ll probably have trouble filling it out unless you’re a professional video editor.
