It's Memorial Day weekend in the United States. Several retailers offer some of the best deals we've seen in months, spanning different categories of technology. There's a lot to see today, so we've listed a selection of promotions below.
Now is the time to hear something from Amazon about when the annual Prime Day will take place. For what it's worth, Amazon may plan to postpone its prime day shopping event, usually in July, to September. So it's possible that some of these deals won't come back for a few months. On the other hand, since we've seen many of these discounts repeatedly below, some of them may be here to stay.

With the offer code, Acer offers a site-wide discount on desktops, laptops and more MEM2020 used at checkout. This saves you up to 20 percent on the purchase. If you search for accessories, you can save 30 percent of them.
The seventh generation iPad has a 10.2-inch display and is therefore slightly larger than the previous model.

The seventh generation iPad offers up to $ 100 off this weekend at Best Buy and Amazon, the lowest price we've seen so far. There has been no shortage of discounts on this tablet lately, but it's worth highlighting here if you've missed previous price cuts.
If you think you can handle 32 GB of storage, the $ 250 version of the iPad should be just the thing for you. If storage is an issue, the 128GB version at Best Buy and Amazon will cost $ 329 (typically $ 429).
GameStop has a deal this weekend where you can get a third for free when you buy two games (new or used). As usual, you get the cheapest one for free, so you can save the most money when you get three games worth $ 60. In particular, this is the first time that GameStop is offering such a deal for new games. Take advantage of this if you have some titles on your wish list.

GameStop also offers savings on the refurbished PS4 Pro console. It usually costs $ 400, but you can get it for $ 280. Given that this console will be successful with the PS5 later in the year, I do not recommend buying it at full price. For this cheaper price, however, it is much easier to recommend if you want to use a 4K-capable console for The Last of Us Part II or Ghosts of Tsushima. If you add five used games to your shopping cart, each for no more than $ 20, you can get them all for just $ 50 if you buy them next to the outdated console.
Several retailers are offering the Pixel 3A for $ 120, which equates to $ 279. The Pixel 3A XL is also discounted, but with an even bigger price cut of $ 160 that drops it to $ 319. Both of these are very helpful if you are looking for a phone with a good camera and the latest Android software.
The new iPhone SE starts at $ 399, but is available free of charge after 24 months of monthly credit from T-Mobile.
T-Mobile offers its customers the iPhone SE (usually $ 399) free of charge with a trade-in. Note that it's not immediately free. You must register for a device payment plan for the SE. However, if you trade on a phone, you will be reimbursed the full cost of the phone with monthly credits that you will receive over a 24 month period. Speaking of which, here's the full list of eligible phones that you can trade to get iPhone SE for free after two years:
- iPhone 6S / 6S Plus series or newer
- LG V40 ThinQ / LG G7 ThinQ or newer
- Samsung Galaxy S8 / Note8 series or newer
- Google Pixel 3 series or newer
- OnePlus 6T or newer
