Memorial Day is less than a week away and the deals are already rolling in, with retailers running week-long sales on all sorts of goodies from home appliances to outdoor gadgets and more. The Abt Memorial Day Sale has some particularly juicy bargains on some of our favorite tech, so if you’re getting an early start on this year’s Memorial Day sales and are shopping around for some shiny new electronics, we’ve picked out the five best deals available from Abt right now and have rounded them up below.
If you want to boost your TV’s sound capabilities but (understandably) don’t want to deal with the hassle and expense of setting up a full surround sound system, then the Roku Smart Soundbar is a great way to bridge that gap. It features four speaker drivers that deliver full, room-filling sound, but unlike most soundbars, this Roku model also comes with built-in streaming capabilities. This allows you to turn pretty much any television with an HDMI port into a full-fledged smart TV, but if you already have one of those, it will let you add Roku to your streaming setup. It even features Bluetooth connectivity, allowing you to stream content to it right from a compatible device. At $150 after a $30 discount, this Roku Smart Soundbar is the perfect addition to any home theater.
Smart refrigerators and ovens might not make sense to some people, but one area where smart home technology is perfectly suited is security. The August Smart Lock Pro + Connect bundle is as smart as it is simple to use (that includes installation — all you need is a screwdriver). It allows you to control your door from just about anywhere, keep track of who comes and goes, and grants easy keyless entry only to people you allow into your home. It even lets you know when the door is open, and you can monitor everything right from your phone. The included August Connect Wi-Fi Bridge makes for easy integration into your wireless network and wider smart home ecosystem. A $51 discount knocks the August Smart Lock Pro + Connect package down to $229.
Ditch your bulky, back-breaking vacuum cleaner and get one made for a 21st century home: The Dyson V7 Motorhead is an excellent cordless vacuum that punches well above its five-pound weight when it comes to power: It utilizes two-tier cyclone suction technology to pull up dirt, hair, and debris from carpet, hard flooring, and upholstery, and it switches into a handheld vacuum for use on furniture, in your car, and in other smaller spaces. Because it’s light, you can also easily use it to clean high places where dust and cobwebs accumulate, and its internal battery delivers up to 30 minutes of continuous run time at full power before needing to be recharged with the included docking station. The ABT Memorial Day Sale lets you snag this high-powered cordless vacuum cleaner for $249 after a $50 savings.
Samsung has long been a leader in the market of the best 4K TVs that money can buy, and the 50-inch Q60T is a great (not to mention quite affordable) pick for anyone who’s after a high-quality Ultra HD smart television. The Samsung Q60T features QLED panel technology for a clear, color-accurate, lag-free picture, while the built-in smart connectivity allows you to stream to your heart’s content. The Q60T offers both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity for easy integration into your home wireless network, and you can stream content right to the TV from a connected device if you want. It also works with both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa for voice control and for syncing with any compatible smart home devices you might have. You can score the 50-inch Samsung Q60T QLED 4K smart TV for just $598 ($50 off) through Memorial Day.
Laptops may dominate the computer world today as hardware has gotten smaller and faster, but the pint-sized Mac Mini proves that this scaled-down portability applies to desktops as well. We loved the Mac Mini when we reviewed it in 2018 due to its great performance and quiet operation, and this newer 2020 refresh is even better: It’s got a quad-core Intel Core i3 CPU paired with 8GB of RAM for work, multitasking, and entertainment, and for storage, you’ve got a nice snappy 256GB solid-state drive. It can also support as many as three displays and even has a built-in speaker for sound (along with a 3.5mm audio jack and HDMI for audio output). At $754 after a $45 discount, this 2020 Mac Mini is a fine desktop alternative to the pricier MacBooks.
