The holiday shopping season is officially behind us, but that hasn’t stopped retailers from finding something else to celebrate with a sale. Right now, it’s all about New Year’s, and in honor of that fact, eBay is taking an extra 20 percent off select items through January 7th when you use offer code NEWYEARDEAL at checkout.

All kinds of gadgets are eligible for the discount,from the Xbox Series X (now $399) to iRobot’s Roomba j7 Plus, the latter of which is on sale in refurbished condition with a two-year warranty for $269.98 ($630 off). Our favorite deals, however, are on Sony’s WH-1000XM5 headphones and WF-1000XM5 earbuds, both of which are down to their second-best price to date. The XM5 headphones are going for just $278.40 ($122 off) on eBay (via BuyDig), while Sony’s noise-canceling earbuds are down to $222.40 ($78 off) via the same retailer; both also come with a one-year warranty.

In case you need a refresher, Sony’s WH-1000XM5 headphones and WF-1000XM5 earbuds are some of the best on the market. Both deliver top-notch noise cancellation and detailed sound, which are two of the reasons they’re our top picks when it comes to noise-canceling headphones and wireless earbuds. They’re also extremely comfortable and offer long battery life, along with multipoint Bluetooth support so you can connect them to multiple devices simultaneously.

With improved comfort, refined sound, and even better active noise cancellation, Sony’s WH-1000XM5 offer a compelling mix of features for the price. And now through January 7th, you can buy them from BuyDig’s eBay storefront for around $278 with promo code NEWYEARDEAL.

Sony’s flagship WF-1000XM5 earbuds improve upon the previous model with richer sound quality, slightly more powerful ANC, and vastly improved comfort thanks to their reduced size and weight. Now through January 7th, you can buy them via BuyDig’s storefront on eBay for around $222 when you use coupon code NEWYEARDEAL.

Speaking of New Year’s, those resolved to get fit will be glad to know that we’re starting to see some good deals land on smartwatches and fitness trackers. Yesterday, we highlighted a terrific deal on the latest Apple Watch SE, but if you’re looking for something for less than $100, the Fitbit Inspire 3 has returned to its all-time low of $69.95 ($30 off) at Amazon, Walmart, and Best Buy.

The Fitbit Inspire 3 is a good option if you just need a Fitbit that nails the basics and you’re comfortable going without built-in GPS, digital assistants, and other bells and whistles often found on more premium fitness trackers. The band’s colorful, always-on OLED display offers everything you’ll need to keep tabs on your fitness goals, from activity tracking to irregular heart rate notifications. It also comes with a few features designed to help you accomplish other wellness goals, including stress management features and advanced sleep tracking as well as six months of Fitbit Premium.

The Fitbit Inspire 3 is a minimalist fitness band that delivers notifications and tracks your activity on a bright OLED screen. It lacks built-in GPS, contactless payments, and digital assistants but offers a range of other excellent health and fitness tracking features.

  • The newer, more colorful variants of the Beats Fit Pro have returned to their all-time low. Right now, you can buy the wireless earbuds in yellow, pink, or blue at Amazon, Target, and Best Buy for $159.99 ($40 off). The fitness-focused buds are one of our favorite models for running and working out, with integrated wing tips for a secure fit, great noise cancellation, and an IPX4 rating for water and sweat resistance. Read our review.
  • Time’s running out if you want to take advantage of Steam’s annual winter sale, which runs through 1PM ET on January 4th. Thousands of PC games are still on sale, including Diablo IV ($28 off), Baldur’s Gate 3 ($6 off), and the recent Dead Space remake ($36 off).
  • The Eufy Security SmartTrack Card is matching its all-time low of $16.99 ($13 off) at Amazon and the Eufy storefront (with offer code WS7D1KJLRY). Unlike Apple’s ubiquitous AirTags, Eufy’s handy Bluetooth tracker features a relatively slim design that’s perfect for slipping into your wallet; it also taps into Apple’s vast Find My network, rendering it a great choice for iOS users.
  • Speaking of AirTags, Woot is selling a single leather AirTag Loop for $14.99 ($24 off) or a pair for $24.99 ($53 off) through January 5th (or while supplies last). Apple’s discontinued leather accessories are far more durable than the company’s FineWoven alternative, which makes this a great deal to scoop up while you still can.
  • Samsung’s entry-level Galaxy Buds FE are on sale for $69.99 ($30 off) at Amazon and for $3 more at Walmart. It’s a shame they lack wireless charging and multipoint support, but the wireless earbuds do offer good noise cancellation and sound for the price. That alone makes them a dependable pick for Android users. Read our review.
