Woot has the AmazonBasics USB-A to Lightning Cable (2-pack, 3ft) for $19.99 in a variety of colors. If you need a longer cable, the 6ft option is available for $22.99 as well. In another Woot accessory sale, the Macally USB-C to USB-A dongle (2-pack) is on sale for $5.99, and Amazon Prime members can save an additional $3 at checkout, making it just $2.99.

These are new accessories that come with an Amazon Limited Lifetime Warranty and Macally 90 Day Warranty, respectively. The usual Woot and Amazon benefits apply, including free two day shipping for Amazon Prime members. You can find more information about each deal on Woot, and both are set to expire later tonight.

Over on Amazon, the SanDisk 250GB Portable SSD is on sale for $70.67, down from $99.99; and the 500GB option is on sale for $89.99, down from $169.99.

SanDisk's accessory is a rugged complement to Mac workstations, supporting high-speed transfers with up to 550MB/s read speeds and shock-resistant durability. In regards to discounts, the current prices are between $7 and $9 shy of the all-time-low prices that we've seen for each of these accessories on Amazon.

If you're shopping for a cheap Apple Watch, and don't mind investing in an older generation model, Walmart has the Apple Watch Series 3 (38mm GPS) for $179.00. This model is currently going for $199.00 at Apple and other resellers like B&H Photo, making Walmart's deal one of the best around and a solid entry level price for the Apple Watch.

Keep up with all of this week's best discounts on Apple products and related accessories in our dedicated Apple Deals roundup.

That Sandisk 500 SSD is mighty tempting.

Question for the more experienced...would putting a Windows 10 on it run fine with a 2015 MBPr?
Mediocre deal, this week there was a Crucial 512gb for $60 at Staples

I have the Sandisk 1TB version and it consistently gets reads/writes in the upper 400's. My T5 is mid 500's. it works great for me. I also have 2 of the 500gb versions in the field they have performed great.

The other thing to be aware of with these is that -- at least on the new MacBook Air -- the thing blocks the second USB-C port you might want to be charging with. Apple didn't see fit to put them on opposite sides of the machine, and the ports are pretty close together.
I completely agree. It is such a pain not being able to have two side by side. I've found smaller USB-C dongles that work together.

Costco Sells the 1TB version of the SanDisk SSD regularly for $129. It comes in a grey and white enclosure instead of black and red, but is otherwise identical and a great deal.
