Greetings, Arsians! The Dealmaster is back this weekend with another round of deals to share. This time, we're putting our focus on back to school sales; yes, the little Arsians are heading back to campus in the coming weeks (if they haven't left already), which means it's time for the annual rush of students and parents looking to find the proper gear.

curated a buying guide

of recommended back to school tech earlier this week, but if the goods there don't work for you, it's worth noting many retailers are still running gadget sales that could prove useful to college students. Various laptop makers are running deals on their notebooks, Amazon has kicked off another round of discounts on its Fire TV and Echo devices, and Best Buy is currently holding its annual "anniversary sale."

Because he only wants the best for you and your kids, the Dealmaster has scoured the Web and rounded up a few highlights from these sales below, all of which could be handy to a returning student. We've emphasized good laptop sales, but the deals also cover video games, headphones, media streamers, and storage solutions. Have a look for yourself below.
