It’s no secret that sales at Speedway increase throughout the year. The store’s social media accounts are filled with posts about its sales throughout the year, ranging from huge discounts to amazing deals on specific items. While many of the sales are valid (and you might even end up buying something too), it’s important to be careful and aware of any scams or tricks relating to the store’s marketing strategy.
The store’s marketing team is brilliant when it comes to creating buzz and attracting people to the store. Its social media accounts often have huge followings. So, if you see an incredible deal or product on Instagram, you know that it’s probably a sponsored post. But, just because a post is sponsored doesn’t mean that everything about it is inaccurate or misleading. It simply means that the brand paying for the post has a commercial relationship with the store.
As much as we’d like to think that all the posts on Speedway‘s Instagram account are genuine, commercial relationships with brands means that some of them are probably not. This can be tricky to discern when you’re looking at a deal that seems too good to be true. Here, we’ll discuss some of the most popular products and deals that you might encounter on Instagram, along with some tips on how to ensure that you’re not getting scammed by any of it.
CES Deals And Offers
One of the most popular products that you’ll find on offer at Speedway is the Cyber Evan’s Ski Pack. This is a collaboration between Evan Lysyk, a well-known computer security expert and lawyer, and the owner of Speedway, Jason Wolfe. The idea behind the product is to create a ski outfit that’s both secure and cozy. It started as a joke between the two of them, and then they got a little bit carried away and decided to create a whole collection of winter gear.
The pack contains all the gear that you might need for a day on the slopes, including a jacket, hat, gloves, scarf, goggles, and a small torch. It’s lightweight and highly practical, which is probably why you’ll see so many people wearing it on social media platforms like TikTok and Instagram. It’s designed to look like a mixture between a security guard’s uniform and a space ranger’s outfit. So, if you have a passion for both skiing and cybersecurity, you might find this line of products fascinating.

Bionic Ear Inflatable Earphones
Another product that you might encounter on offer at Speedway is the bionic ear inflatable earphones. These in-ear headphones have an integrated speaker in the form of a pair of silicone ear tips, which are designed to be inserted into the external ear. When you press a button on the arm of the device, the ear pads inflate, blocking out the majority of external noise while allowing you to listen to music with ease.
You can use these earphones for recreational activities, such as walking or running, or you can put them in your ears when studying or working to ensure that you remain productive and focused. They provide excellent sound quality and are quite portable, weighing in at just 2.2 ounces (62 grams) and measuring 7.7 x 3.5 x 1.4 inches (192 x 92 x 36 mm). Furthermore, they’re completely waterproof and have an adjustable headband, making them compatible with most face types. These are great for students and professionals, as well as anyone else who frequently spends time outdoors or in areas where there’s a lot of background noise.
Polaroid Pocket Photo Printer
Another product that you might encounter on offer at Speedway is the polaroid pocket photo printer. This is a great gift idea for photographers and artists who spend a lot of time working with printed photos. They’ll find this gadget a pleasure to use, as it takes traditional photos and turns them into digital prints, easily accessible on any modern device.
The device resembles a small handgun, and it’s highly portable, fitting easily into a pocket or backpack. It has a built-in USB port, so you can directly connect it to your computer and transfer photos wirelessly. Furthermore, there’s an integrated SD card reader, so you can directly insert cards from your camera or phone into the printer. The back of the device has room for a 3.5-inch (88 mm) screen, so you can easily view and send images directly from the gadget.
Furby Friends Vibrating Pads
Last but not least, we have the vibrating pads series from Furby Friends. These are small rubber balls that vibrate when you put them in your mouth and allow you to interact with virtual characters on your smartphone. They’re incredibly easy to use and are ideal for younger users. Simply pull back on the ball with your tongue, sending vibrations through your body to the surface you’re holding in contact with (usually your stomach).
The series consists of five fun-sounding toys with different characters and interactive stories. Simply pull back on the ball with your tongue, sending vibrations through your body to the surface you’re holding in contact with (usually your stomach). You might find this particular vibrating pad amusing, as it lets you send vibrations through your body, pretending to be a monster or a superhero.
These are just some of the items that you’ll find on sale at Speedway. There are many more, so be sure to check out the store’s social media accounts to see all its offerings.
