Amazon’s Prime Day sale is still chugging along, but if you’re not an Amazon Prime member (or don’t want to be), there are still some good deals to take advantage of from other retailers. It has become commonplace for competitors to match, and sometimes undercut, some of Amazon’s sale prices, and that’s once again the case this year. We poked around the web and picked through these competing sales to highlight the most worthwhile non-Prime Day tech deals that are still kicking at retailers besides Amazon.

Sony’s WH-1000XM4 remains one of our top picks among noise-canceling headphones, while Bose’s QuietComfort 45 is a fine alternative for those who’re willing to trade some battery life and noise-canceling power for a little more comfort. Beats’ Fit Pro is a sportier take on Apple’s AirPods Pro that work especially well with iPhones, while the Studio Buds are a less-featured but still solid option for $100. Jabra’s Elite 3 earbuds are simpler, lacking features like active noise cancellation or the ability to auto-pause when taken out of your ears, but for less than $50 their sound quality and high comfort makes them a solid buy.

Google’s Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are the best Android phones on the market. Their top-notch cameras, clean software, guaranteed updates (until at least fall 2026), and capable performance provide good value at their normal retail prices, but these deals bring them down to their lowest prices to date. The company’s Nest Hub, meanwhile, is a recommended smart display thanks to its adept, radar-based sleep tracking and useful, camera-less smart display.
