All of today’s best deals are now up for the taking, headlined by a certified refurbished sale that has dropped the iPhone 12 down to $645. That’s alongside $149 off the latest M1 Mac mini and Beats headphones from $50. Hit the jump for all that and more in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break.
Woot’s latest refurb sale includes iPhone 12 and more
Woot is discounting a selection of certified refurbished iPhones starting at $100. Marking a rare price cut and the most notable inclusion in the sale, right now you can score the unlocked iPhone 12 for $645 in four styles. Originally selling for $799, you’re looking at one of the first refurbished discounts we’ve seen and the best value we’ve seen yet.
Even with the new iPhone 13 being unveiled earlier this month, those who don’t need the latest can take advantage of some notable savings by going with Apple’s now previous-generation handset. Sporting a classic squared-off design, the iPhone 12 arrives with a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display, 5G connectivity, and an A14 Bionic processor. Plus, around the back, you’re looking at a dual-camera array capable of taking the best photos from a smartphone on the market. Get a closer look in our hands-on review.
Apple’s latest M1 Mac mini now $149 off
Amazon is now offering Apple’s latest M1 Mac mini starting at $650 for the entry-level 256GB model. However, the real highlight is on the elevated 512GB offering, which drops to $750. Down from the usual $899 going rate, you’re looking at $149 in savings, with today’s offer coming within $1 of the best price so far in the latter half of the year.
A notable way to bring Apple’s M1 chip to the desktop, its latest Mac mini not only provides a low-profile solution for outfitting the workstation but also gives you the added flexibility of being able to choose your own display. Despite its small footprint, you’re looking at the same power as the rest of the original M1 lineup with up to 512GB of storage and 8GB of RAM to balance out the pair of Thunderbolt ports.

Save on Beats headphones and earbuds from $50
Amazon is continuing all of the early Black Friday savings we’ve seen so far over to Apple’s latest collection of Beats headphones and earbuds today, starting at $50. Our top pick is the Powerbeats Pro for $150, available in several colorways, marking a return to the all-time low for the first time in over three months. Down from the usual price tag of up to $250, today’s offer saves you as much as $100 and is $10 under our previous mention.
Centered around an entirely wireless design, Powerbeats Pro rock up to 24-hours of playback and a workout-ready form factor. Thanks to Apple’s H1 chip, you’ll be able to enjoy features like Hey Siri, quick pairing, longer range, and more. Get all of the details in our hands-on review.
Bring iOttie’s Easy One Touch 5 Car Mount to your ride
Amazon now offers the iOttie Easy One Touch 5 Dashboard Car Mount for $20. Down from the usual $25 going rate, you’re looking at a match of our previous mention at 20% off that marks the best we’ve seen in nearly 5 months.
Delivering iOttie’s recently-refreshed One Touch mount, the brand’s latest in-car accessory arrives with a suction cup base and telescoping arm. Attaching to your dashboard or windshield, it’ll hold your iPhone or Android smartphone in-view for keeping an eye on navigation and the like. Plus, the mount can adjust to hold everything from the compact iPhone 13 mini to larger 13 Pro Max and other handsets in-between.

Best Buy is currently offering the Philips Hue Hue Play HDMI Sync Box bundled with a Hue Play Gradient Lightstrip starting at $368 for the 55-inch version. Just add both of the smart home accessories to your cart, where the savings will automatically apply. Normally this bundle would run you $460, with today’s offer saving you $92 in order to mark the first notable discount of the year and the best value to date. You can also score the same 20% savings on the 65-inch model, too.
Expanding the rest of the Philips Hue Play ecosystem, the new Gradient Lightstrips pair with a required Hue hub in order to bring your smart home setup to the home theater. Attaching onto the back of your TV, there are two different sizes on sale to fit an up to 65-inch TV.
