The best ways to use your $50 gift cards at Amazon, Best Buy or Walmart

by Bernice Manor (2020-02-11)


A veritable clubid="article-body" class="row" section="article-body"> Did you find a gift card under the tree or by the menorah this year? That's basically free money, so now you just need to decide what to get. Have no fear: We've rounded up some awesome ideas, all of them priced at $50 or less. Be sure to hit the comments and let us know what you decided to gift yourself!

Best under $50 at Amazon
An Amazon gift card is either the easiest thing to use or the hardest -- because there are so many options. These are some of our favorites.

EarFun Free
True wireless on a budget
Sarah Tew/CNET Looking for budget-priced true-wireless earbuds? What's most impressive about the EarFun Free are the features: Bluetooth 5.0 with both USB-C and wireless charging. They're also durable and fully waterproof (IPX7), according to the specs list. Do they sound perfect? Maybe not quite, but they sound pretty good. They don't have the clarity of higher-end true wireless ear pods that cost $150 or more, but they do have plump bass and enough detail to avoid sounding dull. They're also pretty solid for making calls. Read our EarFun Free earbuds first take.

$50 at Amazon Once Upon in Hollywood 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray
4K movie for that new 4K TV
Amazon If you're looking to test out a new 4K TV (or even an old one), the Once Upon in Hollywood 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray is one of the best looking -- and sounding -- discs of 2019. Tarantino's ode to the glory days of Hollywood during a turbulent time in its history (and the country's) is also highly rewatchable, particularly for the performances of Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio. 

The standard Blu-ray is $5 less and the digital 4K version is $15 at various streaming services, including iTunes and Vudu (it's a Movies Anywhere title).

$28 at Amazon Sphero Mini Soccer
Affordable STEM toy
David Carnoy/CNET The Sphero Mini, the app-enabled programmable robot ball, now comes in a version that looks like a soccer ball and even comes with mini cones. You can drive the Sphero yourself or program it to perform various maneuvers using easy coding commands in the app. Read our Sphero Mini first take.

$37 at Amazon Coast HP7 LED Flashlight
The gift of light
Sarah Tew/CNET There are a lot of flashlights you can buy for under $50, but the Coast HP7 is one of the better ones we've tried. Relatively compact and rated at 530 lumens, it's bright for its size and has an easy slide focus that lets you shape the beam from flood to spot, and then lock the beam into whatever shape you choose. The list price of the gadget is $60, but you can get it for less than $40. It's powered by four AAA batteries (included).

$35 at Amazon Chemex 6-Cup Classic Coffeemaker
A timeless brewing device
Amazon Want something to really talk about at the coffee table? CNET editor Sharon Profis says this is "a go-to gift from me for coffee lovers." She adds that it's fun to give with half a pound of your favorite beans. This easy to clean item is a great gift idea for someone -- including yourself -- who likes a good cup of pour-over.

$41 at Amazon Logitech MX Anywhere 2S
Premium mobile mouse
Sarah Tew/CNET We all spend so much time with a computer that everyone appreciates a good wireless mouse. This premium mobile model is about as comfortable as they get for ufabet a mini mouse, and it doesn't break the bank. Thanks to Logitech Darkfield Laser technology, it works on just about any surface, everything from a glass table to the Formica-style finish of my work desk. And it has an integrated rechargeable battery that's supposed to last up to 60 days on a single battery charge. It may not be the perfect video game mouse, but you can still play a game with it.

Though its list price is $80, you can pick up the "meteorite" version for $50.

$50 at Amazon Gunnar Optiks blue-light blocking glasses
Computer eyestrain reliever
Sarah Tew/CNET For several years Gunnar Optiks has been making "computer glasses" designed to block blue light and help alleviate the eyestrain you get from staring at a display or a game for long periods. The glasses come in a variety of styles and a few different tints. The core models have an amber lens, anti-reflective coatings and slight magnification.

The Vertex (pictured here in both amber and clear tints) and Riot styles are priced at less than $50. You can add prescription lenses through the Gunnar website, but those RX packages cost more.

RAVPower 61W Dual-Port Charger
Best do-it-all USB charger
Sarah Tew/CNET With both a USB-C PD port and a good old-fashioned USB-A port, the RAVPower 61W Dual-Port Charger is great for charging any device from a phone to wireless headphones to a full-on laptop and most everything in between, including the Nintendo Switch, Amazon Kindle and Apple iPad. It's also a nice value at around $30 when you apply the coupon on the product page.

$30 at Amazon Xcentz Portable Charger 10,000 mAh
Compact high-capacity portable battery
Sarah Tew/CNET It's hard to get more practical than a portable battery pack, especially a model that uses one of the smallest and lightest 10,000-mAh batteries, with 18-watt power delivery and QuickCharge 3.0 for devices that support it. This charger has both a USC-C port along with a USB-A port and can be used with both Android and Apple phones, though no cables are included. Certain colors cost as little as $20.

See at Amazon TaoTronics True Wireless Earbuds
Affordable true wireless
Sarah Tew/CNET If you aren't ready to splurge on a pair of Apple AirPods (or otherwise fairly pricey totally wireless earphones), there are some easy to afford options out there, including the TaoTronics True Wireless earbuds, which are pretty decent. They may not deliver perfect sound (the AirPods don't deliver perfect sound either), but most people will find it perfectly acceptable. They have Bluetooth 5.0 and 5 hours of battery life at moderate volume levels. They're also sweatproof, so you can use them at the gym. Right now, you can save a few extra dollars and get them for about $35 when you apply the coupon on the product page. Read our TaoTronics True Wireless Earbuds review.

$35 at Amazon Logitech K380 keyboard
Compact keyboard
Sarah Tew/CNET Logitech's K380 has been around for a while, but it's still a great keyboard for the money -- perfect for computers, tablets and phones. You can find it for less than $30 online. Read our Logitech K380 keyboard review.

Tribit XSound Go
Budget Bluetooth speaker that sounds good
Sarah Tew/CNET Another candidate for best value wireless speaker, the Tribit XSound Go is one of the best ones for the money -- about $33 at Amazon, depending on which color you choose. And if you're willing to spend a little more, for around $55 you can pick up the larger MaxSound Plus, which has richer sound with more bass. Read our Tribit XSound Go review.

$33 at Amazon Eufy Smart Scale P1
Healthy gift
Sarah Tew/CNET Time to kick-start your New Year's resolution. At around $45 (minus $8 via an on-page coupon), the Eufy P1 is one of the least expensive smart scales. Beyond weight you can track body fat, BMI, bone mass, muscle mass and more for multiple users. You track everything using the EufyLife app, but the scale also ties into Apple Health, Google Fit and the Fitbit App. It's available in two colors.

$45 at Amazon JBL Clip 3
A waterproof wireless speaker that's great for home or travel
David Carnoy/CNET It usually sells for $60 to $70, but certain colors of the JBL Clip 3 is currently hovering around $40 at Amazon. Despite its small size, this little wireless speaker is great for music or podcasts. It's waterproof, it travels well, it recharges via USB and the built-in carabiner lets you clip it anywhere. It's also available in at least a dozen stylish colors, which helps make it a great gift idea.  Read our JBL Clip 3 review.
