It’s back-to-school season, and parents across this great nation couldn’t be happier. Kids and college students, though, not so much.

It’s also the best time to get back to saving on some of the hottest tech kids need to make the school year as productive as possible. Or you know, a great way to buy cool gadgets to play games and watch Netflix on the cheap.
