Kim’s Opinion: The best deals in tech right now

Whenever new tech comes out, there are great deals to be had if you know what to buy.

After all, the tech junkies and Apple fanboys are ready to buy the latest and the greatest, so they’re offloading their old tech. And if you do want the newest, there are great deals to be had for now.

The next-generation iPhones and Apple Watches are starting to hit stores. This means, starting with iPhones, that if you have an iPhone seven or older, it’s a great time to upgrade.

Both Verizon and AT&T are offering a buy-one-get-one-free deal on any combination of the iPhone X, 8 or 8 Plus. Of course, you can pick up a used iPhone X on eBay, too.

Next up, the Apple Watch Series 3 is a deal at $279. The battery lasts all day, has a ton of tracking and will alert you if your heart rate is elevated. Sure, the Series 4 is 30% smaller and offers electrocardiogram tracking but if you don’t need it, why wait until October when the Series 4 ships and costs hundreds of dollars more?
