The holiday rush is over and while it may feel like things are slowing down, retailers are still in a frenzy with new year sales designed to clear out inventory. 

Every year, major retailers from Amazon to Walmart offer end-of-year sales on everything from MacBooks to fitness trackers. These new year sales are an excellent opportunity to score the gift you wanted at a fraction of its price. They're also a great time to make use of that stack of gift cards you received. 

Like all major retail holidays, new year sales aren't a one-day event. Many of these deals will last for the next few days. I've been covering retail holidays for 16 years. Below, I'm rounding up the best new year sales you can get on devices the Tom's Guide staff has reviewed and recommends. Current sales include up to $400 off select Apple gear, smart TVs from $64, and up to 50% off select kitchen appliances.

LG A2 48" 4K OLED TV: was $1,299 now $599 @ Best Buy
Lowest price! The A2 is LG's entry-level OLED. In our LG A2 OLED review, we said it offers a wonderfully colorful picture and fairly strong audio. It offers Dolby Vision/HDR10/HLG support, LG's webOS platform, and built-in Google Assistant/Amazon Alexa. Console gamers take note: It's a budget model, so you only get a 60Hz panel and three HDMI ports, with no HDMI 2.1 support. Otherwise, it's great for casual gaming and streaming. The 48-inch model is a Best Buy exclusive.

Mattresses

Siena Mattress: was $499 now $199 @ Siena

Siena Mattress: was $499 now $199 @ Siena
The Siena Mattress is a very affordable memory foam mattress from the same company behind Nectar and DreamCloud. Its medium-firmness feel should suit most sleepers and we like that it has five layers of memory foam and polyfoam, with a breathable cover to help you sleep cooler at night. In our Siena Memory Foam mattress review, we said it offers excellent temperature regulation, superb edge support, and low motion transfer for a very low price. As part of its mattress sale — Siena is offering the twin for $199 (was $499), whereas the queen is $399 (was $699). You also get a 180-night trial with free shipping and returns. 

DreamCloud Hybrid Mattress: was $839 now $449 @ DreamCloudSave 40%!

It features five layers that offer firm, responsive support as well as soft cushioning. In our DreamCloud mattress review, we said it's a great bed for just about anyone, but it especially shines for those suffering from hip or lower back pain. As part of its flash sale — you can get the DreamCloud Hybrid mattress twin for $529 (was $839) or the queen for $799 (was $1,332).

After discount, you can get the Midnight (twin) for $702 (was $936) or the queen for $1,030 (was $1,332).  In our Helix Midnight Mattress review, we said the hybrid mattress delivers the comfort and support you'd expect of a pricier model. It's also an excellent choice for side sleepers, with memory foam that relieves pressure by cradling pressure points along your body. Meanwhile, the mattress' coils offer a little bounce, limit motion transfer, and boost airflow to keep you cool as you sleep.

Nectar Premier Hybrid Mattress: was $1,349 now $799 @ Nectar

Nectar Premier Hybrid Mattress: was $1,349 now $799 @ Nectar
I've been sleeping on this bed since April and I can't recommend it enough. Nectar's 2023 mid-tier hybrid bed uses both memory foam and 8-inch innerspring coils to offer maximum comfort and support for most types of sleepers. In my Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress review, I said it offers the cradling sensation you expect from memory foam mattresses without that sinking sensation some memory foam mattresses suffer from. I weigh 240 lbs. and this mattress supports every inch of my body when I'm laying down. Nectar includes free shipping, returns, and a 365-night trial as well as a lifetime warranty. After discount, the twin costs $799 (was $1,349), whereas the queen costs $1,098 (was $1,799).

Editor's Choice!
I bought the 15-inch MacBook Air for $1,049 during Black Friday. This deal beats that price by $50. The MacBook Air 15-inch M2 is arguably the best 15-inch laptop on the market for the money. It packs a gorgeous Liquid Retina display (2880 x 1864), Apple's M2 CPU w/ 8-core GPU, 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD, and a better six-speaker sound system than you'll find on the 13-inch model. In our MacBook Air M2 review, we called the Editor's Choice laptop an unbeatable combo of stellar performance, long-lasting battery life, and sleek design. Note: You can future-proof your laptop and get the 16GB RAM model for $1,499.
