    eBay today launched its latest sitewide coupon code, this one focusing on items in the tech category, which is a good chance for those looking to save a little money on Apple products and accessories. The code is lower than previous sales at 10 percent off, but works the same way: find a tech item anywhere on eBay, add it to your cart until the total reaches or exceeds $50, then enter coupon code PRIMOTECH to gain access to the discount.

    The code's savings will be capped at a maximum value of $100 and applies to the purchase price (excluding shipping, handling, and taxes) of eligible items on eBay. Eligible items include those from the following categories: computers and electronics, cameras and photo, cell phones and accessories, computers/tablets and networking, consumer electronics, and video games and consoles -- essentially any category in the Electronics tab. If you're interested, be sure to browse eBay and make your purchase before the code expires tonight at 11:00 p.m. PT.

    In a similar vein, Rakuten today kicked off a coupon code promo on its website that nets shoppers a 15 percent discount when entering the code SAVE15 at checkout, with maximum savings of up to $50. You'll need a Rakuten account to use the code at checkout, and only one coupon can be used per account within a single transaction. There are also some limits and exclusions, including any gift cards.

    Otherwise, you can shop across Rakuten for savings that include the Beats Studio3 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones for $181.90, down from $214. Comparatively, the headphones are discounted to $213.75 currently at Walmart and Amazon, making Rakuten's sale a great chance to get the Beats headphones at an all-time-low price. Other ideas include a Nest Thermostat E for $135.99, down from $159.99, a 2-pack of iHome ISP6X Wi-Fi Smartplugs for $49.30, down from $58.00, and more.

    Similar to eBay, Rakuten's products are sold by third-party sellers with ratings that you can find at the bottom left of each item page. Rakuten's sitewide sale will end tomorrow, July 11 at 11:59 p.m. PT. For more sales going on this week, be sure to head to our full Deals Roundup.

    Rakuten owns Kobo, yet the Kobo eReader is not part of the SAVE15 coupon code. Super lame Rakuten!

    It applies to Canadians (ebay.ca). 10% is sucky even from Canadian sellers. To buy from the US & pay in USD, then duty wipes out even a sucky deal.
