Jesus Diaz raved about these and interviewed the creator on Gizmodo a few years ago, and now you can pick your own from Amazon for 15% off with promo code KINJA015, plus $8 if you want it engraved.

There are several options available, and prices will vary depending on the size of your laptop. They’re all designed specifically for various MacBook models, but compare measurements, and you could probably find one to fit your Windows Ultrabook as well. No matter which one you choose, you’ll save 15% at checkout with that promo code. Needless to say, these also make for a fantastic Valentine’s Day gift.


Peak Design Everyday Messenger | $185+ | MassDrop
Photo: Amazon

Peak Design’s Everyday messenger bag is our readers’ favorite camera bag, but finding a decent deal on it is like getting a shot of a weasel riding a woodpecker. So if it’s been on your wish list, be sure to grab one today from MassDrop, starting at $185. Even on sale, it’s a splurge, but it comes with a lifetime warranty, and it should last you for years and years.


Vogek XXL Mouse Pad With Phone Stands | $15 | Amazon | Promo code VOGEK136

Update: Promo code VOGEK136 works now.

We’ve seen other oversized mouse pads before, but I have to say, built-in leather kickstands for your phone are a pretty unique touch. They fold flat into the mat when you don’t need them too, so your mouse can glide unabated. Use promo code VOGEK136 to get it for $15.


B&O Play Beoplay H7 Over-Ear Wireless Headphones | $200 | Amazon | Promo code KINJA15B

As good as they were when they launched a few years ago (and they are very good), Bang & Olufsen’s Beoplay H7 over-ear Bluetooth headphones were a tough sell at their original $450 price tag. But now, the street price on them is a much more palatable $250, and our readers can save an extra $50 on a pair with promo code KINJA15B (must purchase from Roberts LP via Amazon).


NETGEAR 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch | $14 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If your router doesn’t include enough ethernet ports for your liking, this 5-port gigabit switch from NETGEAR is a cheap and easy way to solve that. $14 is the best price Amazon’s listed since last July.


RAVPower HyperAir Qi Pad | $30 | Amazon | Promo code ICWL1299
Photo: Amazon

RAVPower’s HyperAir Qi charging pad is one of the few models out there to support 7.5W iPhone charging (iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X only), and you can save $10 on it today with promo code TECHBP34.

To be clear, there are a lot of Qi pads that support 10W charging for certain Android devices, but iPhones require a very specific frequency to enable their maximum charging speed of 7.5W, and this is one of the most affordable compatible pads we’ve seen.

If you’re only using Qi for overnight charging and don’t need the faster speeds, this iClever pad is also a great deal. Just use code ICWL1299 to get the deal.


Wi-Fi range extenders can’t work miracles, but if there’s one spot in your house with spotty coverage, they can be a much cheaper solution than buying a new router. So at $30, why not give this one a try? Just be sure to clip the $5 coupon, and you’ll see the discount at checkout.


Whether you need a spare card for your dash cam, your GoPro, your Switch, or anything else, Samsung’s 64GB and 128GB cards are both on sale today. I have the 128GB card in my own Switch, and it’s been great.


Three Months DIRECTV NOW + Apple TV 4K | $105 | DIRECTV NOW
Screenshot: DIRECTV NOW

DirecTV Now is one of the better over-the-top cable replacements out there, and with this deal, there’s very little reason not to give it a try.

Advertisement

For a limited time, if you prepay for three months of the service at $35 per month, you’ll get a 4K Apple TV included for free. That Apple TV costs $179 normally, so you’re basically getting a $74 discount on the box, plus three months of live TV. No brainer.


VPNs have been in the news, and whether you want to get around video geoblocks, circumvent proxy filters, or just keep prying eyes out of your browsing data while using sketchy public Wi-Fi, reader-favorite Private Internet Access has a deal to fit your needs.

Last month, they offered our readers $10 off two year memberships, but this time around, you get a few more choices, ranging from a quick taste of the service to an extended commitment with additional savings:

These deals are only for our readers, but we aren’t sure how long they’ll be available, so go ahead and sign up while you can.

Top Home Deals

Dr. Meter OBD2 Wi-Fi Code Scanner | $12 | Amazon | Promo code V7UY5UF7

You’ve heard of Automatic’s smart driving assistant, but if $130 is too rich for your blood, this OBD2 dongle costs over 90% less (with code V7UY5UF7), connects to any iPhone or Android device over Wi-Fi, and can fulfill many of the same functions using various third party apps.

The most obvious use case here is understanding and clearing check engine codes, but these things give you access to pretty much all of the sensor data in your vehicle, at a much more granular level than you’d get from all of the symbols in your instrument cluster.


Up to 50% off Presto Cleaning products | Amazon
Graphic: Erica Offutt

Gerber Paraframe Knife | $9 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Update: Sold out

Gerber’s 4.2 star-rated Paraframe knife features a unique handle that keeps weight to a minimum, and a deal that keeps its price to a minimum as well. $9 is an all-time low for this one, but it’s an add-on item, so you’ll have to add it to a larger Amazon order.

Graphic: Shep McAllister

It’ll be warm enough to eat outside again before you know it, and you can fit the whole family around this picnic table. It’s just $100 in today’s Amazon Gold Box, and includes a hole for an umbrella. But let’s just marvel for a moment at the fact that Amazon will send you a picnic table in the mail with free two day Prime shipping

No kitchen is complete without a good set of mixing bowls, and this 10-piece stainless steel collection (five bowls and five lids) is a steal at $23. They even have measurement lines etched on the inside so you end up with <very Great British Bake-Off voice> a good bake.

Photo: Amazon

If you don’t have enough cargo space in your car for a big road trip, you could:

a) Buy a new car

One is probably more prudent than the other, even if it’s a little less fun.


12-Pack X-Chef Metal Drinking Straws | $8 | Amazon | Promo code SGPR79OP
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Not only are metal drinking straws an easy way to class up your drink, they’re also much better for the environment than disposable plastic straws. I use one every day. For a limited time, get a pack of 12 (six bent and six straight) for just $8 with code SGPR79OP.

Graphic: Shep McAllister

It’s 2017, and your lighter doesn’t need fuel anymore, it just needs to recharge over USB. This flexible neck model is just $10 with code TEKPK6SU, is perfectly designed for lighting candles, and can spark 400 times on a charge from its 220mAh battery.

And in case you missed it last week, our favorite arc lighter, the Power Practical Sparkr Mini, is still down to $19 with code L5IMQBFO. This is an updated model of the Sparkr which fixes an issue that caused the its flashlight to turn on in your pocket, and it also doesn’t make a high-pitched whine like most competing products.


Tacklife Outlet Tester | $5 | Amazon | Promo code QAXI6QOK

Before you do any electrical work around the house, you might want to pick up this outlet tester for $5 with code QAXI6QOK. A series of three lights correspond to a handy chart printed right on the device, telling you if the outlet is properly grounded, has reversed polarity, and more.


Within $1 of its all-time-low price, this 10-piece Cuisinart stainless steel set will be a huge upgrade if you’re still rocking those pots and pans you bought for your first apartment.

Built with aluminum sandwiched in between durable stainless steel, these pans heat up quickly and evenly and won’t be too hard to clean. This set hasn’t been this cheap since last August, so if you’re in the market, I wouldn’t hesitate.


Update: If you missed these a couple of weeks ago, now they’re even cheaper, just $9.

Typically selling for $14, you can grab yourself a two-pack of Amazon’s best-selling silicone baking mats for $9.

If you haven’t used one before, you should now that nothing will stick to these. They’re made of silicone, flexible, and fit onto standard-sized baking sheets, making clean up a breeze. Plus, since you won’t be baking nonstick spray into your cookie sheets, they’ll look like new for longer.

20% off $25+ Orders | eBay | Promo code PRETTYDAY. Full seller list here.
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Yesterday’s 15% sitewide discount is over and done with, but eBay’s still running a 20% promo code for a variety of home goods sellers, most notably Dyson.

Advertisement

For a limited time, Dyson’s eBay outlet is taking an extra 20% off any $25 order (maximum $50 discount) with promo code PRETTYDAY including vacuums, fans, and even hair dryers. They sell a lot of new stuff on eBay, but the best deals are on the refurbs. Either way, they’re sold directly by Dyson; this isn’t a sketchy third party situation.

My favorite pick here would be the cordless Dyson V7 Animal (refurbished) for $200, perfectly maxing out the discount at $50. If you want a corded upright, the Dyson Cinetic doesn’t require a filter, and is a great option at $168.

That same PRETTYDAY code will work with a number of other (admittedly less exciting) sellers as well, including eBags, Puma, Worx, Zwilling J.A. Henckels, and more, so check out the full list on this page.


Anker Roav DashCam A1 | $42 | Amazon

In less than a year, Anker’s first foray into the dash cam market has spawned an entire line of products, and one of the newer models just got its best discount ever.

Advertisement

The Roav DashCam A1 is mostly a spec-for-spec match for the original C1, though it operates in a slightly wider temperature range, and is designed more like a traditional action cam than a purpose-built dash cam. That makes it a little less sleek on your windshield, but allows you to tilt it left and right, rather than just up and down. It’s really a matter of personal preference, but any dash cam with Wi-Fi and Anker’s level of customer service for around $40 is worth checking out, if you ask me.


Update: This deal is back if you missed it a few weeks ago.

Victorinox’s Fibrox 8” chef’s knife is one of your favorite chef’s knives period, and by far the best value in the industry. It’s also the knife I’ve used almost every day for almost five years. Amazon has it for $30 right now, which is an absolute steal for the quality you’re getting.


Cast Iron Chainmail Scrubber | $7 | Amazon | Promo code NYLQKZ8Q

One of the only downsides of cast iron pans is that they can be a nightmare to clean, but this chainmail scrubber can scrape away caked-on food without hurting your seasoning, or resorting to soap. No wonder one of them is in our bestsellers club. Today’s $7 deal (with code NYLQKZ8Q) also happens to be the best price we’ve ever seen on one of these.


6 Night Portugal Vacation | $1474+ | Great Value Vacations

Rates start at $1,474 per person (prices vary based on departure date and airport), and include roundtrip flights to Portugal, six hotel nights across three different cities, breakfasts, a rental car, some wine tastings, and even a river cruise. Just make sure you bring a suitcase big enough to fit a few bottles of vinho for your trip back.

Preorder Micro Wallet | $20+ | Kickstarter
GIF: Kickstarter

Leather can only get so thin, so if you want a truly minimal wallet, you may want to give paper a try.

Advertisement

Or to be more specific, tyvek. It’s waterproof, tear resistant, thin, and flexible... everything you’d want a minimal wallet to be. The upcoming Micro Wallet is made of nothing but carefully folded tyvek with a couple of RFID shields built in. It can hold up to eight cards (though in my experience, it performs much better with six), and comes in a few standard black designs, or your choice of unique artwork.

Eight commissioned designs are available already, and more will likely unlock through the course of the Kickstarter, which has already raised nearly $100,000. Preorder to get one for $20, or two for just $28, with bigger discounts available for larger orders.

We sort through the noise of Kickstarter to find you preorder discounts worth taking advantage of. Someone on our team has tested a prototype (or final version) of every Kickstarter we cover.


Philips OneBlade + 2 Replacement Blades | $27 | Amazon | After $10 coupon

Update: Temporarily out of stock, but you can still order it for this price, and get it once Amazon has more available.

Advertisement

We didn’t think Philips OneBlade deals could get better than the $17 price tag we saw around Black Friday, but I think this actually has it beat.

Amazon’s currently listing the OneBlade plus two replacement blades for just $27 after a $10 coupon is applied at checkout. That’s $8 less than the regular price of the OneBlade by itself, with no replacements. And even if you already own a OneBlade, this is only $2 more than buying two replacement heads by themselves, and you’re actually getting three blades, plus another shaver.

If you aren’t familiar with this thing yet, Shane shared his thoughts about it on Gear.

Image: Nintendo

As far as I’m concerned, the Switch port of Rocket League is up there with fire and the wheel in terms of greatest inventions of all-time. The ability to play a few rounds in the palm of your hand just makes it that much more addictive, and don’t get my started on Samus’s gunship car. Download it for $15 today, or $5 less than usual.


The Switch Pro controller isn’t just one of the best ways to control your Nintendo Switch, it might be one of the best gamepads ever made, period. If you have a Switch and still haven’t picked one up, $59 is within $9 of the best price we’ve seen, and a solid $10 less than usual.
