Mother’s Day is on May 9, and although there’s an entire month until then, if you want to get the best gift for your mom, it’s better to start preparing earlier. And if your mom happens to be a tech maniac (we know these moms exist!) this article will help you with choosing the best gift for her, and get the best offer on it that you can. Even if your mom isn’t a tech geek, you can always surprise her with a practical tech gift, or even a new phone.
With this being said, let's jump straight into the offers already available for Mother’s Day. Mainly these are found on Best Buy, but we expect major carriers and other big retailers to join the deal parade later on.
When is Mother’s Day 2021?
Mothers’ Day is on May 9th (Sunday). The day honors the mother in the family, as well as motherhood in general. Jump to section:
Best Mother’s Day deals on phones
Let’s start with some great phones if your budget allows it. There are several great phones with awesome performance and features your mom will enjoy. The great thing is that Best Buy’s Mother’s Day offers are now live, so you can go ahead and purchase your gift beforehand, or start planning and comparing prices.
We’ll start with flagships: the Samsung Galaxy S21
and the Galaxy Note 20
, great flagships with all the needed bells and whistles, offering versatile cameras and mighty processors are now discounted on Best Buy. The discounts here range between $150-$250, which is quite a good bargain for those fresh and mighty flagship phones. The Galaxy S21+
is also discounted by the generous $250.
On the other hand, AT&T rightfully says that the best gift for mom is to stay connected with you. Under that slogan, the carrier has some generous discounts (even without trade-in) on the iPhone 11
and on the iPhone 11 Pro
. Verizon has yet to announce its Mother's Day deals for 2021, and so is T-Mobile.
Best Mother’s Day deals on headphones and earbuds
If your mother is a music lover, what better way to make her smile on Mother’s Day then to buy her a pair of awesome-sounding earbuds. If she isn’t into the small in-ear headphones, you can buy her a pair of the beautiful-sounding over-the-head headphones we have here. Either way, these deals will help you get her one of these gorgeous headphones for less money.
Right now, we have the Apple AirPods
with charging case discounted on Best Buy, alongside the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro, and the models by Beats By Dre. Walmart has the Galaxy Buds Pro discounted as well. We expect more models to get discounts soon as well.
Best Mother’s Day deals on smartwatches
A mom rocking a smartwatch means serious business. If she has an iPhone, you can get her an Apple Watch Series 6
or Apple Watch SE
, if she has a Samsung phone, there’s the Galaxy Watch 3
and the Galaxy Watch Active 2
, both of which are pretty good in terms of features and battery life. She will be able to monitor her workouts, respond to notifications, and if you get one of these LTE ones, even take calls, just with her smartwatch.
Right now, AT&T is offering a BOGO discount on the Galaxy Watch
3, while if you buy two eligible Apple Watches, you can get the second one for $200 off. This is a great offer and in this way, you get your mom a gift, and get one for yourself as well.
Walmart is also offering Mother's Day discounts on smartwatches: the Apple Watch
Series 3 is discounted now at the retailer, and so are a couple of Garmin and Fitbit smartwatches.
Best Mother’s Day deals on tablets
Maybe your mom loves reading or drawing? Or maybe she doesn’t know how much fun drawing on a tablet is yet? Well, you can surprise her this Mother’s Day with an iPad, or a Samsung Galaxy tab, so she can learn a new skill or invest quality time in arts or reading.
Right now, Best Buy is giving you a generous discount on powerful Samsung Galaxy Tab models. The Tab S6 Lite is now discounted by $70, while the Galaxy Tab S7, which is the most recent tablet by the company, is discounted by $80. On the other hand, if your mom is into Apple stuff, we have the entry-level iPad from 2020 discounted by $30. Not much, but iPad discounts are rarely seen, so it is still a good deal.
AT&T is offering the budget-friendly Galaxy Tab A
8.4 from 2020 discounted as well.
More deals are coming our way this Mother's Day, so stay tuned!
