Last Christmas we gave you our heart

Advent4

This holiday period, Plugged is running a very special advent calendar. Over the course of 12 days, we’ll be sharing a selection of sweet, sweet deals. You can thank us later.

Want yesterday’s advent deals? You can find that post here.

So, here we go! On the fourth day of TNW’s advent, the lovely team gave to me…

$39 off the Backbeat Go 3 headphones from Plantronics

If you’re on the hunt for a decent pair of wireless headphones for day-to-day use, the Plantronics Backbeat Go 3 could be right down your alley.

They don’t just sound good, you can also use the Backbeat Go 3 to control your phone (like turning up the volume or activating Siri). They’re also sweatproof (making them good for the gym), and are designed to stay firmly in your ears (so, uh, they don’t fall out?). Top stuff.

This deal also comes with a charging case, so your beloved earphones will never be without battery.

Price: ~$91

Plantronics

$130 off a Dell 2-in-1 laptop

That right there is Dell’s Inspiron 14 5000 2-in-1 laptop. And you know what’s super cool about it? It’s simultaneously a tablet and a laptop. It’s like a real-life Transformer!

Specs-wise, it comes with 4GB of memory, a 128GB SSD, and an 8th Generation Intel Core i3-8145U Processor – all for a respectable price.

Dell is running a strong discount on this device, which could be a great buy if you’ve been on the hunt for a hybrid device that’ll let you type as easily as draw. Worth a gander for sure.

Price: ~$350

Dell

$75 off JBL fitness headphones

Do you like sports? Or are you shopping for someone who does? Then you should explore the JBL Reflect Fit.

Not only do these deliver solid sound-quality, but they also sync up with heart monitoring hardware. This means that you can be exercising and get constant feedback on your heart rate – all without touching your main device.

If your beloved fitness fanatic has put headphones on their Christmas list, you could do much worse than this pair.

Price: ~$75

JBL
