Best Buy’s big sale discounts Kindle Oasis, Ring Doorbells, and much more

We’re seeing the first big uptick in deals today since Amazon Prime Day in mid-July. Most of them are happening at Best Buy, which is having a three-day sale on Amazon products, like Kindles, Echo Dot smart speakers, and smart home tech. It also has plenty of other things discounted, like Beats headphones, the iPad Air, and more. Of course, I’ve included deals that you should know about from other retailers, too.

Several Kindle models are deeply discounted at Best Buy, notably the previous generation of the Kindle Oasis with 8GB of storage and no special offers (Amazon’s ads) for $174.99 (usually $249.99), and the 32GB model, also without special offers, for $204.99 (usually $279.99). This version is mostly the same as Amazon’s latest Oasis, though its display lacks adjustable color temperature.

If the Oasis costs a bit too much for you, you should check out the latest Kindle Paperwhite with 8GB of storage and special offers, which costs $84.99 (usually $129.99) at Best Buy. Its display is just as pixel-dense (300ppi) as the Oasis, and it’s waterproof, too. This is my colleague Chaim Gartenberg’s top pick for the best e-reader, edging out the Oasis, thanks to its lower price.

DJI’s Osmo Pocket gimbal with an integrated camera capable of 4K/60 frames per second capture is $324.99 at Daily Steals. Verge readers can get this price by entering the offer code VERGEDJI at checkout.

This gimbal is priced at $349.99 at Amazon and elsewhere, and according to my colleague Jon Porter, who reviewed the Osmo Pocket, it might be a nice addition to your vlogging setup. It’s not perfect, but if you’re looking for an all-in-one solution to record stable video, you might want to check this out.
