Before we jump into today's deals, a quick preview of something I'm working on: I just signed up for T-Mobile Home Internet, which promises unlimited high-speed service for a flat $50 a month. The hardware is backordered, so it'll be a couple weeks before I have anything to report, but suffice to say I'm excited to finally have a potential alternative to Comcast -- and a much cheaper one at that.

If you're a T-Mo Home Internet user yourself, hit the comments and share what you like and don't like. Otherwise, stay tuned!

Best Buy

The Lenovo Smart Clock Essential is a hugely popular bedside companion, offering a more traditional clock-radio display backed by Google Assistant. It normally sells for $50, though it often dipped as low as $25 during the holidays.

For just $5 more than that, Best Buy's bundle adds a four-pack of smart bulbs, which would normally cost you $45. They're 60-watt-equivalent soft-white bulbs that you can control via app or voice assistant (natch).

I don't how long this can possibly last at this price, but GameStop is selling preowned copies of the console classic Battlefield 1 for just 99 cents -- and that drops to 83 cents with promo code CAG16. It's available only for in-store pickup, so you'll have to cross your fingers your local GameStop has it in stock.

I was able to snag a copy for Xbox One. Your mileage may vary, of course. Read GameSpot's Battlefield 1 review to learn why this is well worth the drive.


Amazon seller: EarFun US

Price: $39 with on-page 20%-off coupon and promo code EFAIRBNT

We continue to be impressed with EarFun earbuds, which typically offer lots of great features, solid sound quality and genuinely good pricing. The EarFun Air, for example, is an AirPods alternative that mimics Apple's pipe design. Although it lacks active noise cancellation (instead relying on basic noise isolation), it includes both USB-C and wireless charging and in-ear detection. That means when you take an earbud out, your music autopauses. Great feature.

Cheapskate Jr. has been using these for months. His verdict: "These are the perfect earbuds." The EarFun Air also made David Carnoy's list of the best Apple AirPods alternatives.

My take? Amazing value for the money.

Enjoy your day, cheeps!
