Coffee makers and lightbulbs may not make the school supply list, but if they are on yours, some top-rated products that fit the bill are on deep discount right now.
Consumer Reports tracks prices on its top-tested products all year and found some that can be handy for school on sale.
A tablet can be the perfect fit for a backpack. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is marked down to $300 at Best Buy. It has a 10.4-inch screen and 128 GB of storage, plenty for a student.
Headphones can help with study time and prevent roommate annoyances. The Bose Soundlink Around Ear headphones are on sale for $142.49 on Amazon. That’s nearly $90 off.
If an organization spells success, a label maker can help. The Brother P-Touch Cube is now $59.98 at Walmart.
College students with early classes or late-night study habits could use a coffee maker. The Hamilton Beach 49350 is marked down from $100 to $80 at Amazon.
And a smart lightbulb can be a bright idea to upgrade a dorm room or study area. The Wyze smart lightbulb is compatible with Alexa and Google Home and is on sale for $15 at Amazon.
The back-to-school season is also a good time to find deals on earbuds, smart speakers and laptops. And, many retailers offer student discounts.
