Staples might not be everyone's go-to retailer for mobile tech deals throughout the year, but if you find yourselves in the vicinity of an office supply store in a few weeks, you'll want to check out its cool Black Friday discounts on tablets, smart speakers, and wireless headphones in addition to stuff like chairs, printers, PC components, laptops, and monitors.
We're talking a solid 80 bucks shaven off the $329 list price of Apple's recently released 10.2-inch iPad, as well as $50 or $25 saved by those in the market for swanky new true wireless earbuds and willing to choose the Beats Powerbeats Pro or AirPods with charging case respectively over the even newer AirPods Pro.
Meanwhile, although there's usually no place like Amazon to shop Fire tablets and Echo devices from, it's hard to believe the e-commerce giant will bring the Fire 7 lower than $30, the third-gen Echo Dot lower than $22, or the Echo Show 5 and second-gen Echo Plus lower than $50 and $100 respectively.
Staples is also planning to sell a bunch of other smart speakers and smart displays at great prices on Black Friday, starting with a $29 Google Home Mini ($20 off), a $49 Google Home (down from $99), and a $79 Google Nest Hub (after a $50 cut) and wrapping up the list with 50 bucks taken off the regular price of all Facebook Portal models. That's not too shabby if you absolutely have to buy these things from Staples.
