Apple iPhone SE (2020) -- $99, was $149

Walmart's offer for the 2020 release of the iPhone SE is one of the cheapest iPhone deals that you'll ever encounter. The budget version of Apple's smartphone features a 4.7-inch Retina display, a 12MP main camera, and a 7MP selfie camera. The iPhone SE can last up to 13 hours on a single charge, with storage space of 64GB that's adequate if you're the type who regularly deletes unneeded apps and unnecessary photos. The second-generation iPhone SE comes with iOS 13 out of the box, but it can be upgraded to iOS 16, which is the latest version of the mobile operating system. The iPhone SE units that Walmart is selling are locked to Straight Talk, but that may not be a drawback for some shoppers as it's one of the best prepaid phone plans.

Amazon Fire 7 -- $40, was $60

If you want what's arguably the cheapest tablet that's still worth your money, you want a Fire tablet. The Amazon Fire 7 is the cheapest of Amazon's cheap tablets. It's not going to set the world on fire in terms of performance or display quality, but it gives you easy access to tons of apps, you can watch videos and browse the web on it, and -- of course -- it's fine for reading books and magazines. It's not a bad little device to consider getting if you have a Prime account, as it'll let you take full advantage of your membership benefits. If you can up your budget just a bit, though, then the Fire HD 8 might be a better buy.
