The 20 best weekend deals: home work gear and more


We’re climbing since a year the pandemic first imposed a lockdown on the United States, forcing many people to Work at home for the first time, and the children learn remotely. If you haven’t yet made a home office, temporary or not, now is still a good time, because the pandemic does not disappear yet. We’ve found several offers this week that can help you find your niche, and if you already have your own space, you might find something here that will make distance learning and working a little more comfortable.

Our guide on setting up a home office and our work from home gift guide have more ideas.

Special offer for Gear readers: get a One year subscription to WIRED for $ 5 ($ 25 off). This includes unlimited access to WIRED.com and our print magazine (if you wish). Subscriptions help fund the work we do every day.

If you need a new desk, chair, or monitor, a few of our favorites are on sale. You will also find an offer on a standing desk mat and monitor stand, among others.

  • Jarvis Bamboo Standing Desk for $ 479 ($ 50 off): This is our favorite standing desk. There are three height ranges for you to choose from, and the site explains how to measure and find the perfect fit for your needs. You can save four presets to easily switch between your favorite heights. Depending on the finishes you choose, this desk might cost a bit more, but with the current sale you can get premium finishes for less than normal.
  • FlexiSpot EN1 standing desk for $ 300 ($ 60 off): WIRED Senior Associate Editor Julian Chokkattu’s Notes that this desk takes a little longer to assemble than the instructions suggest, but has the benefits of a motorized standing desk at a cheaper price. It can range from a height of 28 to 48 inches and you can save three height presets. The surface is made of eco-friendly particle board and doesn’t look cheap.
  • Staples Ardfield Mesh Back Fabric Task Chair for $ 60 ($ 70 off): Editor-in-chief Jeffrey Van Camp recommends this chair after testing “every chair in every store” (in the Before Times). This is not his favorite – it would be the Staples hyken, also slightly reduced – and it might not last you a lifetime, but it’s significantly cheaper than most options, especially on sale.
  • LG 34-inch Ultrawide Monitor for $ 320 ($ 60 off): Ultrawide monitors are great if you need more screen: you can run two full-size browser windows side by side, and many members of the Gear team have one. Van Camp recommends this model, which has 2560 x 1080 resolution, HDMI and DisplayPort inputs, and fast response time (if you’re playing during downtime).
  • Vissles-M portable touchscreen monitor for $ 189 ($ 20 off): A portable monitor allows you to carry it from room to room, so you don’t necessarily need to stay strapped to a desk. It plugs into your laptop via cable and you can use it as a secondary display. Our the exam contains more information.
  • Amazon Basics Premium Single Monitor Stand for $ 124 ($ 11 off): Mounting your monitor on an arm like this allows you to reclaim some of your desk space. If you have a 32-inch or smaller monitor (which leaves out the ultra-wide above), you can use this Amazon Basics arm. We haven’t tested it ourselves, but it comes highly recommended. Need something for a bigger monitor? We like that one of Monoprice.
  • Logitech G513 Mechanical Keyboard for $ 131 ($ 20 off): It’s our favorite keyboard for most people. It’s relatively quiet (for a mechanical keyboard), comes with a numeric keypad, and has RGB lighting, but you can turn it off if you prefer.
  • Logitech G203 wired mouse for $ 28 ($ 12 off): It is in our Best mouse guide, and it’s our pick for the best under $ 50. Don’t be fooled by its low price: it can compete with more expensive models in terms of sensitivity, and you get six buttons.
  • Aukey FHD webcam for $ 28 ($ 32 off): It’s not our favorite webcam, but it’s one of the few that is constantly in stock and affordable. It reliably rests on a monitor.
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab Active3 and 27-inch M5 Smart Monitor for $ 620 ($ 100 off): If you already had an interest in getting an Android tablet, you can save $ 100 on the new Samsung smart monitor if you buy them together. The tablet is rugged, so it’s designed for a more active environment, and the monitor has a TV interface when you’re done with your work. An option will come to add the monitor once you add the Galaxy Tab to your cart.
  • CubeFit Terramat for $ 100 ($ 5 off with coupon): That’s not a huge reduction, but an anti-fatigue mat like this can make standing at a desk more comfortable. There are built-in ridges and bumps that help stimulate and massage your feet, along with a balance bar to work your core and wedges positioned to stretch your calves.
