Best Tech Deals for August 2018

It's not every day that you find a big screen smart TV with all the streaming media bells and whistles for a great value. Anyone who wants to step up their home entertainment set up, might be interested in the RCA 55" Class 4K Roku Smart HDR LED TV deal happening at Walmart. For a limited time, you can grab this ultra high resolution television for a mere $329.99. That's a whopping $470 off its regular $799.99 price tag, making it one of the most competitive prices found among other smart TVs in its class.


Meanwhile, BuyDig is offering the Samsung 55-inch Curved 4K QLED Smart TV for an astonishingly low $999. You have to add the TV to your cart and make it to the final checkout page to see the discount. That's a whopping $2,000 under Samsung's direct price and it's also $240 under Amazon's in-cart price of $1,239. Normally, the only QLED TV we've seen drop below $999 has been Samsung's 49-inch QLED, so this 55-inch model is hands-down the best QLED TV deal we've seen.

Another rare sale, Amazon has the Sony 13-inch Digital Paper Tablet for $599.99 ($100 off). That's the first time Sony's tablet has been on sale. (You can check out our review of the tablet here).

Switch owners can stock up on a few games as Walmart has several titles on sale for $45. Mario Kart 8, Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Tennis Aces, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild are all part of the sale.

Don't own a Switch? Walmart is offering the Switch Console with your choice of the Labo Variety Kit or the Labo Robot Kit for $339. You're saving at least $40.

    Cool list. But I have in the hunt of some services on sale like a VPN, AntiMalware and IDS IPS. I found all these and a bit more within one service and they are offering all this in a really solid price (5 years for $69). It is worth checking out if you're in need of anything like that: https://www.purevpn.com/vpn-deal-of-the-decade
