While having more music available on your smartphone than ever before is great, these devices don’t always offer the best sound quality. That’s where Bluetooth speakers come in, and Ultimate Ears is one of the best you can get. Thanks to Amazon, one of UE’s better portable speakers is on sale for more than 40% off.

The UE MEGABOOM speaker is currently available on Amazon for $139.99, that’s $110 down from its regular $249.99 price tag — and an amazing deal. The portable speaker is definitely amongst the best UE speakers on Amazon, with 100-foot range for Bluetooth connections and nearly 20 hours of battery life. On top of that, it is water and shockproof, making it the perfect addition for those trips to the beach.

Like most other UE speakers at that price range, the MEGABOOM has 360-degree sound. It also offers stronger bass than similar speakers from UE, Sony, and Bose. 

So if you find yourself in need of a new speaker, don’t miss out on the UE MEGABOOM on Amazon. This sell will go fast.

I guess the World Cup is kind of a big deal, huh? It’s like even if you don’t care about sports, you still kinda care about the World Cup.

It’s no wonder everyone is screaming (and jumping) while they watch — games and goals are so fast and even the tiniest of movements can lead to a huge play, so missing even a second due to lag or shitty resolution is unacceptable.

If you’re tired of squinting to see where the ball went on your laptop or are tired of going to the bar only to crane your neck for 90 mins just to catch a sliver of the TV, we got you. While we don’t have tickets for you to attend a game in Russia, we do have deals on 4K smart TVs from Amazon, Walmart, Target, and Dell, which is basically the next best thing.

Samsung people can finally have their choice of deals anywhere from a 75-inch QLED for $800 off, all the way down to a refurbished 24-inch smart TV for just $87, perfect for a tiny dorm or apartment. Oh yeah, and a giant 80-inch XLED TV from VIZIO is over $600 off, too.

Check out more of the best TV deals we found for the week of June 18:

It’s often the case that kids are already more comfortable with technology than their parents. These little information sponges have already mastered how to use your iPhone and the family tablet, can cruise through new apps with ease, and have likely become your go-to for navigating Netflix.

However, parents are always looking for ways to keep their kids from seeing and doing things that may be a bit inappropriate. The Echo Dot Kids Edition is Amazon’s answer to that issue and lucky for you, they have a 2-pack of their family-friendly smart speaker on sale for $30 off

The Amazon Echo Dot seems to hit a great middle ground for parents and their kids. And since it’s 19% off right now, it might be the best time to get the pair of Echo Dots at $129.98.

Home assistants are becoming more and more common in the household thanks to numerous functions, from weather reports and playing music, to timers and voice controls for other smart-home connected devices. This bundle from Amazon gives those functions to kids, but with the proper limitations of course. 

The colorful Echo Dots include a year of FreeTime unlimited, which normally costs $119.98 a year. This allows parents to filter out explicit music and prevent the kids from purchasing something like a $1200 Sony TV that they think is cool. Kids will also have access to tons of books from Audible, plus great, kid-friendly Alexa skills as well.

Use the pair of Echo Dots like an intercom system to communicate with your kids from anywhere in the house — all without having to yell. And since these Echo Dots are aimed especially at kids, you know they come in fun colors, including green, blue, and red.

So if you want to introduce your kids to Alexa and the things she can do, grab the Amazon Echo Dot Kids Edition Bundle on sale for $129.98.

Psst: We found a way for you to work on your #BeachBod without even going to the gym after work.

Okay, well it might not be 100% the same as pumping iron and doing squats, but isn’t it comforting to know that there’s a way to burn calories and stay fit while sitting at your desk?

Yeah, you need the Cubii Pro Under-Desk Elliptical in your life. And it’s $130 off its regular price on Amazon today.

A while ago we did a story on how to stay fit at the office — yes, that’s a thing. “Working out” and staying in shape while at work has become a huge internet trend, with people using things like standing desks, special balancing chair toppers, and under-desk cardio machines to keep their bodies moving throughout the day and possibly prevent future heart problems or diabetes. The elliptical from Cubii was our favorite pick of the bunch.

Sitting for eight hours a day sucks, but getting up to take a walk around the office isn’t always possible. The Cubii Pro lets you keep your legs moving while still being productive, with eight resistance levels for you to decide how sweaty you wanna get. (The listing on Amazon says you can burn up to 150 calories per hour.)

Once you get past the immediate shock of how extra this machine is, it’s actually pretty cool — with Bluetooth and Fitbit syncing capabilities as well as a connected app so you can track your progress and set exercise goals. This means skipping the gym after work guilt-free.

The Cubii Pro usually goes for $379, but you can snag it for a whopping $130 off its original price at just $249 today.

E3, the Electronic Entertainment Expo, is hot and heavy in Los Angeles through June 15. But if you’re reading this post, we’re guessing you already knew that — and are probably experiencing hella FOMO if you’re not there.

It’s fine though, because Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo are celebrating by giving devoted gamers basically every single deal they’ve ever wanted, plus release dates and preorders for games we’ve literally been waiting years for. 

You basically get to experience all the butterflies of E3 without getting sweated on by 50 Lara Crofts.

Sony’s contribution to the madness features the Sony Days of Play: a sale running through June 18 that features a sick-looking limited edition PS4, controllers, and savings up to $200 on crazy VR bundles and games like God of War.

Microsoft is calling the days from now until June 23 their Biggest Sale of the Year, and yup, it’s pretty big. Save on numerous Xbox One consoles, games like PUBG, as well as codes for free months of Xbox Live Gold. The biggest news? The Xbox One X is $50 off for the first time ever.

And, like always, Nintendo, Disney, and others have stolen the show by dropping release dates of games we have been itching for: Games like Kingdom Hearts 3, Fallout 76, and Super Smash Bros. are finally (!!!) available for preorder, with most being officially released in Fall 2018 and Winter 2019. If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can save an extra 20% on those preorders.

So, take a deep breath and check out the rest of this week’s best E3 deals:
