When you work from home, you’re often responsible for stocking your home office with the things you need to get your job done. Although some companies offer a reimbursement plan for your office equipment, you cannot rely on it. You will want to find some deals.
I was combing through the Amazon Cyber Week listings and found a few items that I think would help alleviate the stress of working from home. Let’s get to the bargains.
JBL Tune 230NC TWS true wireless headphones
Headphones are a must for working from home. You will experience times when there is too much noise in the house and you cannot concentrate on the task at hand. When those times come, you’ll be glad you picked up a pair of JBL Tune 230NC TWS True Wireless headphones.
These in-ear earphones contain 10mm drivers to deliver JBL’s Pure Bass Sound. It’s active noise cancellation with Smart Ambient technology, so you hear more of what you want and less of what you don’t hear. With four microphones for phone calls, those on the other end of your calls will find the sound quality quite impressive. You get up to 40 hours of battery life on a single charge and eight hours when noise-cancellation is on. These buds are IPX4 waterproof and sweatproof.
The regular price is $99.95 but the Cyber Week sale price is only $49.95.
ASUS VivoBook 15 F515 Laptop
If work has provided you with an inferior laptop or you need to use your own, consider purchasing a work-specific device so you don’t mix up your personal with your work information.
While this ASUS VivoBook 15 F515 might be a bit on the low end in terms of specs, this offering is quite good. This laptop packs Windows 11 in S mode, an 11th Gen Core i3-1115G4 CPU, 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. The display is a 15-inch Full HD NanoEdge VIPS with an 83% screen-to-body ratio with anti-reflective coating. You’ll also enjoy a full-size backlit keyboard.
As long as you’re not crunching big numbers, this laptop should serve you well. Note that the laptop does not have an Ethernet port, so you can only use it over WiFi. The Cyber Week offer price is only $331.95 compared to $449.99. This is a bargain that cannot be missed.
ROMOSS 30000mAh Powerbank Sense 8+, 18W PD USB C Portable Charger
Winter is fast approaching and that means snow and ice. If you live in a place like mine, you know this can easily lead to power outages. When you work from home, the possibility of a power outage is a reality, and when you don’t have a backup generator, a power outage means a loss of work.
To avoid such a result, you can also use a power bank to keep your phone and tablets charged. Such a power source could last at least a few hours.
The ROMOSS 30000 mAh power bank has a capacity of 30000 mAh, so you can supply your devices with plenty of power without any worries. Capable of fully charging a phone 12 times, this device has three different charging ports – a Micro-USB, a Lightning, and a USB-C. It takes around 11 hours to fully charge the device, but it includes a fast charge feature that will get you 80% charged in just 35 minutes. The power bank can be charged with any cable that fits into the three ports. T
The regular price for the ROMOSS 30000 Power Bank is $39.99, but there is a 20% Cyber Week coupon that can be redeemed at checkout.

This headphone and microphone combo features custom-tuned HyperX 7.1 surround sound, sliders for bass adjustment, game and chat balance, an aluminum frame, an advanced audio control mixer, a detachable noise-cancelling microphone, and a braided cable that will last for years.
