Deals: eBay's 10% Off Tech Flash Sale and Rakuten's 2-Day 15% Off Sitewide Sale

by

eBay today launched its latest sitewide coupon code, this one focusing on items in the tech category, which is a good chance for those looking to save a little money on Apple products and accessories. The code is lower than previous sales at 10 percent off, but works the same way: find a tech item anywhere on eBay, add it to your cart until the total reaches or exceeds $50, then enter coupon code PRIMOTECH to gain access to the discount.


The code's savings will be capped at a maximum value of $100 and applies to the purchase price (excluding shipping, handling, and taxes) of eligible items on eBay. Eligible items include those from the following categories: computers and electronics, cameras and photo, cell phones and accessories, computers/tablets and networking, consumer electronics, and video games and consoles -- essentially any category in the Electronics tab. If you're interested, be sure to browse eBay and make your purchase before the code expires tonight at 11:00 p.m. PT.

In a similar vein, Rakuten today kicked off a coupon code promo on its website that nets shoppers a 15 percent discount when entering the code SAVE15 at checkout, with maximum savings of up to $50. You'll need a Rakuten account to use the code at checkout, and only one coupon can be used per account within a single transaction. There are also some limits and exclusions, including any gift cards.


Otherwise, you can shop across Rakuten for savings that include the Beats Studio3 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones for $181.90, down from $214. Comparatively, the headphones are discounted to $213.75 currently at Walmart and Amazon, making Rakuten's sale a great chance to get the Beats headphones at an all-time-low price. Other ideas include a Nest Thermostat E for $135.99, down from $159.99, a 2-pack of iHome ISP6X Wi-Fi Smartplugs for $49.30, down from $58.00, and more.

Similar to eBay, Rakuten's products are sold by third-party sellers with ratings that you can find at the bottom left of each item page. Rakuten's sitewide sale will end tomorrow, July 11 at 11:59 p.m. PT. For more sales going on this week, be sure to head to our full Deals Roundup.
