  • MORE

The calendar may read July, but back-to-school season is in full swing. To help you save money on the tech you'll need this school year, we're rounding up the best money-saving deals you can find online. From inexpensive laptops to discounts on accessories and peripherals, these are the best bargains available right now.

Dell Back-to-School Coupon: $150 off XPS, Alienware, Inspiron

Retailer: Dell
Regular Price: from $699.99
Sale Price: from $549.99
Coupon: "STUDENT150"

Why This is a Good Deal: Summer may be in full swing, but Dell is already focusing on the fall. The PC manufacturer is taking $150 off select XPS, Alienware, and Inspiron systems via coupon code "STUDENT150". The sale inlcudes our favorite ultraportable, the XPS 13, which sells for $949.99 after coupon.

Save up to $350 on the MacBook Air

Retailer: Best Buy
Regular Price: starting at $999
Sale Price: starting at $699

Why This is a Good Deal: Right now, you can get Apple's most-affordable laptops for even better prices than before. Best Buy has knocked $300 off the Core i5/ 8GB of RAM/ 128GB SSD model, bringing it down to $699. If you need more storage, the retailer is discounting $350 off the Core i5/ 8GB of RAM/ 256GB SSD model, which now costs $849. Unlike the MacBook and MacBook Pro, these machines actually offer USB Type-A ports and their keys feature more travel.

Get the Seagate Backup Plus 4TB External HDD for $88

Retailer: Newegg
Regular Price: $129.99
Sale Price: $87.99
Coupon: "EMCRHCR25"
Expires: 7/26

Why This is a Good Deal: It's not often you'll find 4TB of storage for under $90, but you can currently get the Seagate Backup Plus 4TB External Hard Drive for just $87.99 via coupon code "EMCRHCR25". That's $42 off and one of the cheapest 4TB drives we could find. The drive works interchangeably with PCs and Macs without the need to reformat.

Get the iPad Pro 9.7-inch for just $399

Retailer: Best Buy
Regular Price: $599
Sale Price: $399.99

Why This is a Good Deal: The 9.7-inch iPad Pro has been discontinued by Apple, but that doesn't make it a bad tablet. The very capable tablet still delivers the perfect mix of performance, style, and battery life in a much cheaper package. My Best Buy members (it's free to sign up) can currently get this tablet for just $399.99, which is $200 off and the best price we've ever seen for this tablet. (You must sign into your My Best Buy account to see this price). By comparison, Target has it for $450 and the Apple Store has refurb models from $469. The iPad Pro features a 9.7-inch 2048 x 1536 display, A9X CPU, 2GB of RAM, 12MP iSight camera, and a 5MP front camera.

Save $226 with this Refurb MS Surface Book

Retailer: Microsoft Store
Regular Price: $1,149
Sale Price: $883

Why This is a Good Deal: The Surface Book is a laptop with a detachable display that can be used as a tablet for drawing and sketching. Unlike the Surface laptop, which is made for everyday users, the Surface Book is a creator's device for those who love to edit photos, make music, or create videos. This refurb model, which is backed by a 1-year warranty, is $266 cheaper than the price of a new model. This configuration features a 13.5-inch 3000 x 2000 multi-touch LCD, 2.4GHz Core i5-6300U CPU, 8GB of RAM, 128GB SSD, 5MP front camera, and an 8MP rear camera.

MS Surface Pro 4 Drops to Just $618

Retailer: Amazon
Regular Price: from $649
Sale Price: from $618.98

Why This is a Good Deal: Back-to-school season is here and if you have your heart set on a 2-in-1, Amazon has the Surface Pro 4 for a mere $618.98. That's $45 under Microsoft's current sale and one of the most affordable SP4 prices we've seen to date. This configuration features a 12.3-inch touchscreen LCD, 2.2GHz Core m3 CPU, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB SSD. Amazon has other configs on sale as well:

Acer Aspire ES 15 for $299

Retailer: Amazon
Regular Price: $319
Sale Price: $299

Why This is a Good Deal: For under $300, you get a 15-inch laptop with a Core i3 CPU, a 1TB hard drive and 4GB of RAM. This laptop is very similar to our favorite sub-$500 laptop, the Acer E 15 E5-575-33BM, which costs $50 more but has a 1080p screen while the ES 15 has a palatable, but less-impressive 1366 x 768 display.

11-Outlet Vertical Power Strip for $22.39

Retailer: Amazon
Regular Price: $29.99
Sale Price: $22.39

Why It's a Good Deal: You can never have too many outlets or USB charging ports. This Ledsniper Power strip has 11 different 3-prong outlets, along with two USB ports for charging and, because it's vertical, it barely takes up any space on your desk. There's even an on/off switch for each outlet.

AmazonBasics' Wireless Mouse Drops to $9

Retailer: Amazon
Regular Price: $11.49
Sale Price: $9.49

Why This is a Good Deal: At $9.49, the AmazonBasics Wireless Mouse is an excellent compliment to any laptop. The 3-button mouse ships with its own nano receiver and uses one AAA battery. It's currently $2 off and one of the cheapest mice we've seen.

Get the VR-Ready Acer Predator Helios for $1,050

Retailer: Amazon
Regular Price: $1,099
Sale Price: $1,049.99

Why This is a Good Deal: The VR-ready Acer Predator Helios 300 is a gaming laptop that's packed to the gills with powerful tech. It packs dual-fan cooling, a VR-ready GTX 1060, and a quad-core processor. It's currently $50 off at Amazon. This configuration features a 15.6-inch 1080p IPS LCD, 2.8GHz Core i7-7700HQ quad-core CPU, 16GB of RAM, 256GB SSD, and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB graphics card.

    The Dell inspiron laptop's deal expired, and even worse, all the configurations has seen a notable price increase, now starting at $849. One good thing is that except the starting configuration, all have an IPS, better display now.

    Thanks for the work, it's helpful to find good feedback. Curious how these discounts work? Tried the Dell LAPTOP$449 code that was supposed to expire on the 31st, and it said its an expired code (on the 30th)? Guess it was to good to be true.
