Target has dangled its Deal Days sales event for weeks, but it remained tight-lipped about the details until this morning. The suspense may have been worth it, because we found a bunch of items we’ve previously bestowed with WIRED Recommends awards. These are our favorite deals on smart home devices, audiophile gear, computer accessories, and more. The sale runs through Wednesday, October 14.
We strike through items that sell out or rise in price as we update this guide. Discounts sometimes return quickly, so check for yourself. You’ll need a subscription to Amazon Prime to get most of these deals.
WIRED’s Prime Day Coverage
Home Theater Deals
Yamaha YAS-109 Soundbar for $200 ($40 off): If you’re watching your TV through its own speakers, it’s time to upgrade to a soundbar. Even without a subwoofer or separate surrounding speakers, a soundbar will improve your watching experience. WIRED’s Parker Hall named it the best soundbar with a built-in sub. If you want to connect it up, it also has built-in Alexa so you can control it with voice commands.
Roku Ultra 4K Streaming TV Device for $80 ($20 off): Roku is our favorite streaming box at WIRED. The interface is the cleanest, and it won’t try to lock you out of competitors’ content, like Amazon does. Even if your TV does have a streaming menu built-in (aside from TCLs, which have Roku), a separate streaming box will probably work better, for longer. If you don’t need every bell and whistle Roku has to offer, The Roku Streaming Stick+ is $38 ($12 off) as well. Here is our guide to both models.
Sanus Premium Tilt Wall Mount for TVs 46-90″ for $120 ($20 off): Even if it’s on the wall, you should be mounting your TV so that the middle of the screen is eye level when you’re seated, but if your room configuration doesn’t allow for that, or if you just want it higher, you’re going to want a TV mount that tilts. This Sanus also extends up to 5.7 inches so that you can easily access your TV’s cable ports while it’s against the wall. It’s compatible with Sanus soundbar mounts, and it’ll hold 150 pounds, which is more than enough for any TV and soundbar combo.
