The PS4 Pro is Sony's premium console. Buy it via Target's Cartwheel app and you'll get 20 percent off, which drops the price of the console to just $319.99. The offer ends April 28.
It's no longer Apple's flagship, but Walmart has the Apple Watch Series 1 for $149. That's a full $100 cheaper than Apple's price and a great deal if you're just dipping your wrist into the world of smartwatches. The retailer is also offering the 2017 iPad for $249. That's $80 off and the best price we've seen for this tablet.

In the market for a new TV? Amazon continues to offer the Samsung 49-inch 4K QLED TV for $777. That's $510 under Samsung's full price and it beats Best Buy's price by $10.
Alternatively, you can give your non-smart TV a major upgrade with the Google Chromecast, which is currently $25 at Target. That's the best price we've ever seen for this streamer.
If you missed it last week, Amazon has also lowered the price of the Ring Video Doorbell to $99.99. Amazon also has the August Smart Lock 2nd-Generation for $109.99. Other Amazon devices on sale include:

Good news if you have an old iPad you're trying to get rid of. For a limited time, Best Buy will give you a minimum $125 Best Buy gift card for your old iPad. This is an especially great deal if you own an old model, like the iPad Mini 2, which currently sells for $60 on trade-in sites like Gazelle.
The way it works is pretty simple. You bring your old iPad into Best Buy and they asses its worth. If its value is under $125, Best Buy simply adds a bonus credit till you hit a minimum of $125. If you don't mind owning a previous-gen iPad, you can use your new credit to get the 5th-generation 32GB iPad for $279.99 or the 5th-gen 128GB iPad for $379.99. Both tablets are $50 off.
