Apple iPad 9.7-inch (32GB)
$299 (was $329) – $30 off
Apple refreshed its basic iPad earlier this year and you can already save $30 on the tablet that does almost everything an iPad Pro can do. It runs the same apps and games, with variations only in multitasking software and add-ons. It's worth not paying $649 for the Pro for many bargain-hunting students.

 

$379 (was $429) – $50 off
Need more space on your iPad? The same iPad at 128GB is the answer to this test, and it'll save you even more money off the list price.  It's $50 Apple's tablet while supplies last during B&H Photo's Back to School sales. Normally, you'd pay more than $400 for this same iPad.

$169.99 (was $199.99) – 15% off
TCL has become one of our favorite TV brands because of its cheap prices and easy-to-use Roku interface. It's hard to find a better dorm sized-appropriate television than this 32-inch HDTV.

$349.99 (was $389.99) – 15% off
So you want something bigger with more pixels? Naturally. In that case, we recommend the 43-inch 4KTV from TCL featuring the same streamlined and app-filled Roku interface. It's big, yet still incredibly cheap. Amazon is sold out of them, so head over to Dell for this one.

Back to School supplies: what else you need

Starting at $550 for a mattress
Sometimes college apartments come with mattresses; sometimes they don't. And often, if they do, they're pretty awful: lumpy, hard and stained. Ew. There's good news: we've found comfortable and durable mattresses for delivery (and free setup) at a cheap price. Casper comes in a box, but beats showroom quality – perfect for students trying to save money.

Buy a Mac or iPad, Get free Beats
Up to a $300 value
Apple doesn't offer many discounts, but buying a computer during Back to School season will get you a free pair of Beats headphones worth up to $300, according to Apple. The deal includes everything from the cheap Mac mini (yes, that's still a thing) to the trash-can-shaped Mac Pro.

Philips Hue White Light Starter Kit
$64.99 (cheaper than Colored lights)
We really like the way Philips Hue can spice up an apartment, but we like the smartphone on/off functionality even more. That's why we can recommend the Hue White Light Starter Kit if you're on a budget. It works the same, but without the color capabilities, which you can grow into over time, as you have the hub.
