Save on official Apple iPhone 12 cases from $20

Headlining is the Apple iPhone 12 mini Silicone MagSafe Case for $20 at Amazon. Normally fetching $49, you’re looking at 60% in savings, with today’s offer beating our previous mention to come within a cent of the all-time low.
Apple’s official silicone case wraps your iPhone 12 series device in a premium soft-touch finish that’s coated in a microfiber lining on the inside.

Upgrade to Apple Silicon before back to school at $100 off
Amazon is currently offering the Apple M1 Mac mini 512GB for $799. Normally you’d pay $899, with today’s offer slashing $100 off the going rate to return the price to match the third-best discount we’ve seen to date.
Perfect for upgrading your desktop workstation with the power of Apple Silicon, the latest Mac mini delivers a compact form-factor alongside a more affordable price tag compared to the other models in the M1 lineup. Sporting the same low-profile footprint that many have come to know and love, it packs 512GB of storage, 8GB of RAM, and Wi-Fi 6 support on top of being powered by Apple’s new in-house chip. There are also two Thunderbolt ports to round out the package, and you can get a closer look in our coverage.
Anker starts the week with latest sale
Anker is back to start off yet another week with a new sale via its official Amazon storefront that’s discounting a selection of smartphone essentials, home security gear, Mac accessories, and more. Headlining is the eufyCam 2C Pro 2-Cam Kit for $260. Normally fetching $320, you’re looking at $60 in savings, as today’s offer marks the second-best price to date and the lowest since February.
Armed with HomeKit Secure Video support, this eufyCam 2C Pro package includes two of the 1080p cameras alongside a base station. The entirely wireless designs are backed by 180-day battery life and weather-resistant enclosures, so you can mount them just about anywhere.

Twelve South HiRise for MacBook nears 12-month low at $56
Today, we uncovered a Twelve South sale at Amazon with prices on the company’s premium products as low as $41. Our favorite is the HiRise for MacBook at $56. For comparison, it normally goes for $80 and today’s deal beats our last mention by $3, coming within $0.01 of the 12-month low that we’ve tracked at Amazon. The HiRise for MacBook is designed to bring your laptop to a more ergonomic height for working at a desk. It still allows ample airflow on the bottom since the base is still exposed, and the aluminum build is both premium and quality for a sturdy design. The non-slip arms ensure that your MacBook stays put, as well, once it’s placed down.
Roku Smart Soundbar has 4K streaming, AirPlay 2, and more at $150
Amazon is currently offering the Roku Smart Soundbar for $150. Having dropped from $180, today’s offer saves you $30, matches the second-best price of the year, and has only been beaten once before in 2021 by Prime Day. Combining a streaming media play and soundbar, you’ll be able to enjoy everything from Netflix and Hulu to Apple TV and Disney+ in 4K HDR. Roku’s Smart Soundbar also features an internal array of four 2.5-inch full-range drivers to upgrade your TV’s audio, alongside additional smart functionality like HomeKit and Airplay 2 support.
