OK, so here's a mini Columbus Day deep-dive: A highly reliable Google search tells us it's a US federal holiday that commemorates the arrival of Christopher Columbus to North America in 1492. However, some people do not observe it and prefer to celebrate Native American Day or Indigenous Peoples' Day instead. Even if you don't partake in the holiday, you can still go shopping and score some great deals.
ZDNet has rounded up all the best tech deals for Columbus Day 2019.
When is Columbus Day in 2019?
Columbus Day is the second Monday in October. This year, it is Oct. 14.
Best Columbus Day 2019 deals
The deals below are available now and throughout Columbus Day.
Microsoft recently launched new Surface devices, so, naturally, last year's Surface models are all discounted, including the Surface Pro, which is about $200 off at the moment. With this 2-in-1, you can easily get your work done either at home or while on the go.
We price-checked these Powerbeats Pro, and they're now the cheapest we've ever spotted. They debuted last spring and feature Apple's H1 wireless chip, hands-free "Hey Siri" voice functionality, the ability to switch between paired Apple devices, and Lightning charging.
AirPods with Wireless Charging Case for $169 ($199 regular)
Yes, these are wired headphones, but good luck finding anything Bose-branded that's cheaper. It's almost a no-brainer purchase: Slap down $40, and get yourself a nice pair of buds to wear while you're exercising, commuting to work -- anything really.
If you want a smart display -- rather than a smart speaker -- for your office, here you go: Google's own Nest Hub is $20 off. While not a huge discount, it probably won't get any cheaper before the holidays.
Lastly, Wellbots is offering ZDNet readers an exclusive promo code on the Ecovacs robot vacuum. It's $120 off for a limited time when you apply the code VAC40 at checkout.
