October Prime Day, officially called the Amazon Early Access Sale, has stirred up online shopping activity with a second round of Prime Day deals this year, pushing rival retailers like Walmart and Dell to counter with their Walmart Rollback Sale and Dell Prime Day sale, respectively. Amazon’s event is on its last day, however, which means it’s almost over. You should start your shopping by taking a look at the wide range of offers across all the popular retailers, not just Amazon. To show you what kind of bargain prices you’ll encounter, we’ve rounded up some of the best deals that are available right now.

The third-generation Apple AirPods were released last year, but the second-generation Apple AirPods are still a worthwhile purchase from Prime Day AirPods deals, especially if you’re on a tight budget. They’re very easy to set up with your Apple devices, and they automatically connect whenever they’re in range. The wireless earbuds can last up to five hours on a single charge, and with the juice from the charging case, they can last for more than 24 hours. You can also access Apple’s Siri through the AirPods — you just have to say, “Hey Siri.”

A Chromebook is a laptop that’s powered by Google’s Chrome OS, which relies on web-based apps instead of installed software for fast performance, even on low-end hardware. This is what you’ll experience with the HP 11.6-inch Chromebook, which maximizes the AMD A4 processor, integrated AMD Radeon R4 Graphics, and 4GB of RAM. The laptop also comes with an 11.6-inch HD screen, a battery life of up to 10 hours, and a 32GB hard drive.

The laptop also features a 15.6-inch HD screen, a 128GB solid-state drive (SSD) with Windows 11 Home in S Mode pre-installed, and Dell’s ComfortView technology that reduces blue light emissions that are harmful to your eyes.

The iPad will let you take advantage of iPadOS 15 and the upcoming iPadOS 16, and it can last for up to 10 hours on a single charge, so you can keep using it while you’re on the go.

Most importantly, it can work around your schedule, and with Alexa and Google Assistant support, it can make your life easier than ever, although if you want a slightly fancier one, we do have some other robot vacuum deals for you to check out.
