We’ve scoured the web for the best deals and deepest discounts from Canadian tech retailers.

This week we have deals of up to 70 percent off, including Nanoleaf lights, flash drives, and video games. Below are all of the best deals we’ve come across: 

Star Wars Squadrons

Star Wars Squadrons (PS4)

Montreal-based EA Motive’s latest Star Wars game is currently on sale at Amazon Canada. Harkening back to the days of X-Wing vs Tie Fighter, Star Wars Squadrons is a dogfighting game with epic space battles and VR support. 

We included the game in our top eight Canadian-made games of 2020, noting how it offers something different than the other games made by EA in the franchise over the past few years. Best of all, there aren’t any microtransactions, so you can get the entire experience for just $15.

Buy at Amazon Canada for $15. It’s also worth noting that Star Wars Squadrons is coming to Xbox consoles through Microsoft’s $16.99 per month Game Pass Ultimate subscription service at some point in March. 

Nanoleaf Hexagon Shapes Lights

Nanoleaf Shapes Hexagon Light Panels Smarter Kit

Nanoleaf’s popular Hexagon Light Panels are currently on sale at Best Buy Canada. The innovators at Toronto-based Nanoleaf have continued to expand their lineup of lights, now offering the panels in hexagon shapes. In his review, our own Jonathon Lamont said he “found Shapes to be the ultimate realization of Nanoleaf’s vision.” 

The biggest hurdle with Nanoleaf products is their price, but at $50 off, this is a rare sale that makes the panels more affordable. If you’ve been interested in Nanoleaf in the past, you can pick up the Shapes Hexagon Kit for $229.99.
