Today’s Best Tech Deals

Corsair K68 Mechanical Keyboard | $63 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

There’s a pretty big gulf in quality between cheap mechanical keyboards and expensive ones, but every once in awhile, you can get an expensive board for a cheap price.

That’s certainly the case with Corsair’s K68, now down to an all-time low $63. Featuring linear Cherry MX Red switches, dynamic lighting, and custom programming, it’ll be a massive improvement over the keyboard your employer provided you, or the one that’s probably plugged into your computer at home.


If you take your home Wi-Fi coverage seriously, Netgear’s Orbi mesh routers are some of the best you can buy, and Woot’s running a great deal on a refurbished three-pack. This Reader Favorite is now selling for just $200.

Here’s how they work: multiple nodes, or access points, work together to blanket your home in signal. Better still, the glossy design encourages people to keep them outside of closets and drawers and in plain view to ensure unencumbered signal.

This model also offers all the benefits of a modern router (e.g., 802.11ac/Wi-Fi 5 and app-based management) and is currently selling for $350 new on Best Buy. So, pick up these routers before they disappear by the end of the day.

Oh, and if you’re just looking to push your signal a little further, Woot is also selling a range extender for $35.


Anker SoundCore Icon Mini Bluetooth Speaker | $25 | Amazon | Use code WELOVEFATHER

The spiritual successor to the popular Anker SoundCore Sport, the SoundCore Icon Mini is a tiny speaker that’s designed with the outdoors in mind, and you can save $5 by using the coupon code WELOVEFATHER.

The Icon Mini boasts eight hours of battery life, which is awfully impressive in a speaker that weighs as much as your phone, and takes up about as much space as a deck of cards. It’s also IP67 dust and water resistant, so it can even get fully submerged (to a point) without taking any damage. But best of all, if you get two of them, you can pair them together for stereo sound that will fill your beach tent or campground.


The great thing about Philips Hue is that your fancy lighting profiles aren’t limited to standard bulbs; the Hue LighStrip Plus lets you to stick a rope of color-changing, Wi-Fi connected lights anywhere in your house.

This LightStrip Plus is compatible with Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple HomeKit, and it hardly ever goes on sale, but while supplies last, you can pick it up for $64, the best price Amazon’s listed all year. This kit includes a 6' strip, but you can add on 40" extensions for a (comparatively) affordable $25, if that’s not quite long enough.


Anker PowerLine Lightning 1' Cable | $7 | Amazon | Promo code ANKERL1W
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Long charging cables are terrible for traveling, and further, they’re almost always unnecessary. If you can get by with a tangle-proof 1' cable in your bag, you absolutely should. Not only will they reach your nightstand just fine from most hotel power outlets, but they’re also easier to stuff in your pocket to use with a portable battery pack. This PowerLine model from Anker is on sale for $7 today with promo code ANKERL1W.


UGREEN Portable Apple Watch Charger | $32 | Amazon | Clip the $2 coupon and use promo code HDSHVH58

The Apple Watch charging cable is an awkward thing to pack for a trip. For one, it’s probably firmly attached to some kind of dock or stand on your nightstand, and thus easy to forget. For two, the thin cable with a big, heavy puck on the end is a tangling nightmare in your bag.

Enter UGREEN’s portable Apple Watch charger, now down to $32 after you clip the $2 coupon and add promo code HDSHVH58. It doesn’t have a cable at all, but rather plugs straight into a USB charging port, and balances your watch on top. Smart!

11" iPad Pro (64GB - 1TB) | $674-$1399 | Amazon

8 Qt. Ninja Foodi + Free Gift | $280 | Ninja
Screenshot: Ninja

The Ninja Foodi, designed in part by friend of the site Justin Warner, wants to be the One True Buzzy Kitchen Appliance. It’s a big, hulking thing, but it can do just about everything, as our researcher Corey Foster wrote in an (upcoming) Inventory post:

The Foodi is, however, far more versatile than the Instant Pot, adding broiling, crisping (air frying), and “tender-crisping” (pressure cooking followed by air frying) to the steaming, pressure cooking, searing, sauteing, and souping multi-cooker standards.

Today at Ninja’s site, you can buy the family-sized 8 qt. model for its usual $280 price tag, and get either a free coffee maker, a free personal blender, or a free food processor with spiralizer, all of which sell for $80 separately.

The Foodi is currently priced at $270 on Amazon, and has been as low as $200, so it’s not an unheard of deal, but it’s solid if you happen to need any of the three free gifts.


Nespresso Inissia Espresso Machine by De’Longhi | $85 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Hands down, Nespresso is the easiest way to make decent espresso at home. Their space-saving Inissia model is down to $85 in today’s Amazon Gold Box, the best price of the year.

You could spend hundreds of dollars to buy a 40 pound behemoth that makes slightly better coffee, sure, but if the Inissia is good enough for Boris Diaw, it’s probably good enough for you.

Razer’s Orbweaver, on the other hand, includes 30 mechanical, RGB-backlit keys that can be whatever you want them to be. Ostensibly, it’s designed for gamers who want to create complicated in-game macros to get a leg up on the competition, but it’s also great for office workers, video editors, and photography professionals, who do a lot of highly specific, oft-repeated tasks in software.
