If you’re looking for a new clear iPhone case to show off your phone’s color, we like the Nimble Disc Case. It’s made out of 100 percent recycled CDs and comes in plastic-free packaging. The case won’t add too much bulk to your phone, and its raised front edges keep your screen safe from small drops. You’ll get a free shipping label with your purchase to send the company your old CDs or DVDs or used plastic cases for recycling (plus 15 percent off your next order). Cases fit the iPhone 11 and 12 lineups, plus the 2020 iPhone SE.
Totallee Case for $27 ($12 off)
Use the code DEAL4BFCM for the 30 percent discount. Totallee’s super-thin cases are great for those who hate cases but know their phone needs protection. It’s not going to protect your phone from a big drop, but it will keep it safe from everyday bumps and scuffs. The transparent version is made of thermoplastic polyurethane, which is more heavy-duty than the flexible plastic matte version. They’re available for the iPhone 7 and newer, Pixel 2 and newer, and Samsung Galaxy 9 through the S20 Ultra. Sort through the menus on Totallee’s Amazon storefront page to find your phone.
Limited Edition Tile Pro for $25 ($12 off)
Tiles are one of our favorite ways to find almost anything. All limited-edition Tiles (we particularly like the sushi ones) are 30 percent off.
PopSockets Sale: 25 percent off
Phone grips make good, small holiday gifts. PopSockets has a sale running sitewide, so it’s a good time to pick up a new grip if yours is grubby. All of these options are around $11 or less. Shipping is free on orders over $20.
JBL Clip 3 Mini Bluetooth Speaker for $30 ($40 off)
The Clip 3 is another great option for portable sound. I (Louryn) use it to play music while I’m rollerskating so I can still hear cars over the music. The built-in carabiner makes it easy to hang the speaker from a fanny pack. (Or a curtain rod, if you’re the kind of person who likes accompaniment when you sing in the shower. Don’t ask me how I know.)
Aukey HD Webcam for $30 ($20 off)
Webcams have gotten both more expensive and harder to find since the onset of the pandemic. This option is perfectly capable and super inexpensive.
Aukey 65W 2-Port Fast Wall Charger for $25 ($13 off)
The WIRED Gear team has lots of go-to tangents, but get one of us started on the lack of wall adapters being included with modern technology, and we might never stop ranting. Like Alanis Morissette (probably) once said: It’s like 10,000 cables when all you need is a wall adapter. This Aukey one can recharge your MacBook or two phones simultaneously.
Monoprice Dual Monitor Desk Mount for $46 ($10 off)
If you have a dual-monitor setup, consider mounting them to keep them at a comfortable height (and you’ll get more desk space back too). Monoprice makes solid home office products, and this mount is for smaller monitors up to 27 inches. There are single mounts and other sizes too.
SanDisk 400 GB MicroSD for $45 ($15 off)
This tiny MicroSD card usually retails for $60. It’s best for expanding your smartphone’s storage (if it supports a MicroSD card). WIRED writer Scott Gilbertson says it isn’t good for devices where write speed is critical, like a camera. If you need storage for your digital camera, opt for the Sony 32-GB SF-G Tough Series UHS-II SDHC Memory Card instead, which is on sale for $55—it’s more expensive than other memory cards, but Gilbertson swears by it. The Lexar Professional 2000x 32-GB SDHC UHS-II Card is a solid option also on sale for $37.
Samsung Pro Endurance 128 GB MicroSD Card for $20 ($20 off)
