Best Buy has halved the price of Amazon’s Echo Show 5 device, which enables anyone to place the device in their kitchen or room of choice and speak to their family and friends in a video call. Alongside the standard Amazon Alexa features, it can also be used as a nightstand with many clock face designs, so it can be tailored to your tastes, plus it can stream video and control smart home devices.

Is your Wi-Fi lagging behind? Well throw your current router in the garbage because a trio of TP-Link mesh Wi-Fi routers are here to save the day. From now until whenever Amazon decides to ramp ‘em back up to full price, the TP-Link Deco M3, S4, and M5 are discounted by up to $20. While that’s not the most exciting discount, the S4 in particular—marked down to $135—made the cut in our rundown of the best Wi-Fi routers curated by Andrew Hayward, who’s tested a bunch! Here’s what he had to say:

TP-Link’s Deco S4 delivers the same kind of specs as the above Linksys router, with up to 867Mbps via 5GHz and 300Mbps through 2.4GHz, but does so with a multi-unit mesh design that spreads a signal across a much larger footprint. The two-pack can cover up to 3,800 square feet, while the three-pack is rated for up to 5,500 square feet.

As for the other two, the cheaper Deco M3 shouldn’t be overlooked as a budget-friendly alternative. In fact, because it uses a pair of powerful TP-Link Wi-Fi extenders, thanks to a pair of TP-Link extenders included in the box, the M3 boasts coverage of up to 4,800 square feet, about 700 less than the theoretical range of the S4. And when your talking spaces that large, that difference is inconsequential for most people. Emphasis on most. If you’re well off and/or not living in New York City, the size of your home might necessitate the extra reach. But if neither the M3 nor the S4 is fast enough, that’s a separate issue altogether. Though none of these Deco mesh routers support the latest Wi-Fi 6 standard, the M5 bumps up the speeds from AC1200 (1.2Gbps) to AC1300 (1.3Gbps) because sometimes 1,300Mb makes all the difference.

The wireless controller lets you switch on the fill light directly, change modes, and light levels. This is a really nice deal and a great starter set for anyone wanting to give their creative endeavors a boost. Remember the #1 TikTok tip is well-lit videos do better all around.

Mpow MBits S Wireless Earbuds | $19 | Amazon Gold Box | Clip Coupon
Mpow MBits S Wireless Earbuds | $19 | Amazon Gold Box | Clip Coupon

Comfortable earbuds that block a decent amount of noise and won’t break the bank might seem like they are hard to come by. Mpow is an excellent brand that checks off each of those requirements. Today save 30% on their MBits S Bluetooth wireless earbuds.

As someone who has tested the majority of Mpow’s line, these ones are just as quality. The noise-canceling is some of the best and even with the sound off I still need to remove an earbud to be able to hear someone speaking with me. Calls sound just as good as the tunes which means my mom doesn’t need to turn her phone all the way up to hear me. The Mpow has started making their earbuds so they work independently of each other. This means you can control one at a time if you prefer to be a little more aware of your surroundings. Expect about thirty-five hours of playtime with the case. The earbuds will run around six hours off of one charge. And if you don’t have a lot of time fast charging will get you two hours in fifteen minutes. Waterproof and sweatproof means they’re good for working out. They’re lightweight and comfy for travel or hours of wear.

These will ship free for Prime members.


Need a new laptop? And not just a regular old one, but a total powerhouse that’ll scare everyone who sees it? You’re in luck! Razer is running a massive save on its Razer Blade laptops, with some models marked down up to $500 off the list price. Considering that these very high-end machines can cost thousands of dollars, that’s a huge bit of savings. There are a ton of different models to choose from, but just about everything runs an Intel Core i7 processor, so they pack a serious punch. Whether you need something for gaming, your home studio, or intensive work like video, many of these will suit whatever you need one for.


Philips Audio Fidelio Headphones | $116 | Amazon

There’s a lot of noise happening right now. We’re living through a genuinely overwhelming time that makes it hard to focus on much of anything. I spent hours trying to write a piece about Final Fantasy yesterday. I’ve personally found that a good pair of headphones helps me keep my head on my shoulders when I’m distracted. I have a big pair of studio-style cans that just block out the outside world entirely. If you’re looking for something similar, Amazon currently has Philips’ Audio Fidelio headphones down to $116. These are open-back headphones, so they’re not exactly noise cancelling, but they do offer extremely clear sound and comfortable memory foam ear-pads. Obviously, a pair of headphones isn’t going to solve any problems, but we can only hope for a few good hours of calm during the day.

For a first-gen Apple product, the new MacBooks featuring the company’s own custom chipset is reviewing surprisingly well, even from our friends at Gizmodo. And, like clockwork, the M1-equipped MacBook Pro is discounted $60 at both Amazon and B&H Photo at least if you’re cool with the entry-level Space Gray build with 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD.

Here’s what Gizmodo’s Joanna Nelius had to say in her review of the powerful new MacBook Pro:

I do all my work and play on PC, but Apple’s M1 processor has me wondering if I really need a Windows PC for my next laptop. This is the first time in all my years of computing—ever since my dad sat me in front of a keyboard as a toddler—that I’ve ever considered getting a Mac.


JBuds Air True Wireless Earbuds | $40 | Amazon
JBuds Air True Wireless Earbuds | $40 | Amazon

I’ve had the pleasure of testing a few items from JLab over the last few weeks and was pleasantly surprised by the quality for not only the price but the size. If you’re not sure where to start with wireless and are worried about going too cheap the JBuds Air True Wireless Earbuds are a great option. They’re 15% off and in that nice space of moderate price but solid performance.

The sound is crisp, clear, and they block out a fair amount of background noise. They turn on automatically and connect immediately which is something I’m still getting used to with this brand. And being able to control everything by tapping one of the earbuds takes some time to figure out. It’s a bit of a learning curve but once you remember how many taps to what the transitions are seamless. The charging case is true to the twenty-four-hour claims of playtime. Expect around six hours of tune time for the earbuds off of one charge. These are sweatproof and waterproof so workout approved whether indoors or outside. They are comfy for hours of wear and the case is compact enough to toss in your bag or pocket. The JBuds will be a great addition to your audio collection.

Adidas Sports iPhone 11 Case with Grip Stand | $28 | Amazon
Adidas Sports iPhone 11 Case with Grip Stand | $28 | Amazon

This is one of my favorite cases currently. It’s only for the iPhone 11 and is sold out on Adidas’ website. But it is 20% off right now on Amazon. Adidas is known for making quality workout gear but I can now say they should also be known for making durable tech accessories. Their cases are absolutely built for hearty runs, intense training sessions, or long hauls at the gym. The polycarbonate backplate was perfect on my jogs and didn’t give me a sweaty hand. It also withstood a drop or two over the holidays. The solar red hue is a nice pop of color against my white phone so it definitely catches the eye. But where it really shines is with the stand that can be either horizontal or vertical. It really comes in handy when my mom FaceTimes and I need to be hands-free, like when she’s walking me through one of her recipes. The stand easily pops out and snaps back in and is surprisingly flush after multiple times doing this. This is a versatile and quality case if you need a new one for the new year.

Free shipping on this for Prime members.


Apple iPad Air 4th Gen (64GB Sky Blue) | $559 | Amazon
Apple iPad Air 4th Gen (64GB Sky Blue) | $559 | Amazon

You can snag the newest iPad Air (4th Generation) at Amazon right now and get $40 in savings, bringing your total down to $559 for the base 64GB model in Sky Blue. It’s the cheapest of the bunch, although Green is at $570 right now. Both colors are currently listed to ship later this month.

Reviews are in, and all indications are that this is the best value among all of Apple’s big slates. It shares a lot in common with the bigger, more powerful, much more expensive iPad Pro. It’s only missing extra cameras and Face ID (but the fingerprint reader is back to help), plus the display isn’t as bright (600 nits vs 500), big (12.9 inches vs 10.9 inches), or fast (120hz vs 60hz).

But it has the powerful Apple A14 Bionic chipset and picks up Apple Pencil support, making this a much sweeter option for casual artists and multimedia buffs. And it comes in fun colors, too.

If you’re working from home and need a hub for all of your computer attachments, checkout Vava’s 8-in-1 USB-C hub. It’s down to $20 on Amazon right now when you clip the coupon on the page and use promo code KJUNUR8P. It has an HDMI adapter, an ethernet port, two USB 3.0 ports, one USB-C PD port, and one USB 2.0 port, as well as an SD/TF card reader. Grab it before it’s gone!

Portable USB drives have lots of benefits, from expanded laptop storage, to serving as backup devices, and making transferring files between devices and carrying your files around with you. They can be pricey, though! Samsung’s drives are dependable and sleek, easily sliding into even small bag pockets, so your data can always be at your side. A 1TB drive would typically cost $200, but right now it’s down to $160 on Amazon, saving you $40. You’ll also be able to choose from black, blue, or red, depending on your geek chic.

If you want save even more cash, you can drop down to 500GB and save yourself another $70, since that model’s down to $90 right now on Amazon.

This deal was originally published in July 2020, and was updated with new information on 1/4/2021.

Mpow M9 Wireless Earbuds | $22 | Amazon | Clip Coupon & Use Code MPOWM901

I’ve tested Mpow products in the past and was always pleasantly surprised at the value to price ratio. They’re quality without breaking the bank. A real holiday treat from the company is their M9 Wireless Earbuds. They’re just $22 when you clip the coupon and use the code MPOWM901. This discount will appear once you start the checkout process. This code expires on January 10 and it only works for the black color.

The noise-canceling on all the Mpow products is incredible and of course, the M9s are like this too. The 2 mic/CVC 8.0 tech helps reduce environmental noise but also aids in voice clarity for all types of calls. If you’re on a lot of zooms and skypes these might be your new best friend. You’ll get a full scope of balanced sound if you just want to groove too. They have about 40 hours of playtime in total. It’s 6 hours off of a single charge with an extra 34 with the charging case. To get that full charge with the case it will take about an hour. These pair easy via Bluetooth with your chosen device and look really sleek in the all black. The M9s are sweatproof so go ahead and take these on your next jog.

Movie nights with loved ones are a great way to pass the time. If you’re keeping your circle small or still sticking to those you co-habitat with I’m sure Netflix and Disney+ have been given a run for their money. I’ve been looking into a projector because I’m lucky enough to have a backyard and have a roommate who thought setting up a project for our weekend hangs with the same five people we see might be cool. The Hompow Mini Projector is just $68 right now which is an absolute steal on it.

This projector works with smartphones, laptops/notebooks, tablets, Fire sicks, and more directly with an MHL cable or HDMI adaptor. You’ll need to grab one of those depending on which device you’re streaming with. Get a screen up to 176'’ in mere seconds to make your own personal theater. With so many movie theaters still closed or going out of business this home system is a great way to keep the spirit alive. Although this project is small that doesn’t interfere with its output. High resolution that’s bright and brilliant is not an issue. It even supports gaming systems if you want to host your own esports tournament. Low noise and over 50,000 hours of lamp life makes this an amazing quality to value option. This also comes with a two-year warranty.

TODAY’S BEST GAMING DEALS

All Video Games On Sale | Best Buy
All Video Games On Sale | Best Buy

Well, Best Buy is currently holding 2021's first huge gaming sale. The retailer is running a sale on “all video games” and that actually seems to be true. There’s 10 pages of deals to scroll through, with some newer releases up to $30 off. We’ve combed through it all and found some notable highlights. First off, Animal Crossing: New Horizons is $50, which is noteworthy. Nintendo avoided offering any discount on the game through the holidays, so this is one of its first major price cuts. Cyberpunk 2077 is down to $50 as well, making it the newest release discounted on the site. Some of the bigger discounts include Assassin’s Creed Valhalla for $20 and Yakuza: Like a Dragon for $35.

Basically, if you’ve missed a sale in the past 3 months, this is kind of your second chance for ... everything.

New consoles means new controllers. While Sony got fancy with the DualSense, the new Xbox Series X|S controller is much simpler. It’s exactly what you’ve come to expect from an Xbox controller over the years, and that’s not a knock against it. The new Xbox Wireless Controller feels natural with its lightweight design, textured triggers, and hybrid D-pad. It’s also Bluetooth enabled, making it easy to switch it over to your computer. Even if you don’t have an Xbox, it’s a great choice for PC or mobile gamers looking for a solid controller. Best Buy is currently running a sale on the Xbox Wireless Controller, with the black and white models at $50 (the blue one is slightly more at $55). That’s $10 off the usual price, so it’s a good time for anybody with local multiplayer ambitions to stock up.

2017 feels like forever ago. So much has changed since what many considered to be one of gaming’s best years. That’s especially evident when considering what’s happened in battle royale games since then. Way back then, PlayUnknown’s Battlegrounds was a completely new concept, introducing this whole “battle royale” thing to the world. One year later, Fortnite was dominating the market and everyone wanted a piece of the pie. Now, even Mario has a battle royale game. If you want to take a trip down memory lane and pay your respects to the OG, Eneba currently has the Xbox version (digital code) of PUBG on sale for $5. Just use the discount code BR2021 at checkout to get in on the action. PUBG may seem like old news in 2021, but hey, at least it still works on mobile. The same can’t be said for Fortnite, which remains banned on iOS.

Here at The Inventory, you’ve probably noticed that we love Wario. Anytime you see one of our daily deal round-ups, you’ll see the jolly yellow villain with his gaping maw wide open. That’s because someone has to rep Wario while his brother (?) gets all the attention. For some reason that is still unclear to me, everyone loves Waluigi. Maybe a little too much, in some ways. The Purple Prince is a style icon, not unlike Marilyn Monroe. The day that he gets added to Super Smash Bros. is probably the day the world ends. Regardless of who you love more, you can now invite both horrible men into your home like vampires. Amazon has a 12.5" Waluigi plush on sale $16 today, so I dare you to put your money where your mouth is. For us, we’ll stick to this 10" Wario plush, which is down to $17. If you don’t want to choose, you an always by both of them together for $35.


Nintendo Switch Split Pad Pro | $40 | Amazon
Nintendo Switch Split Pad Pro | $40 | Amazon
Image: Giovanni Colantonio

For those who love to play their Nintendo Switch in handheld mode, the joy-cons can leave a bit to be desired. The tiny controllers are ingenious in some ways, but far from what you’d call “traditional.” Gamers seeking a more familiar setup usually opt to upgrade to a Pro Controller, but that’s not really a perfect solution when you want to play on-the-go. There’s a more creative option available, if you’re willing to go the third-party route. Hori’s Split Pad Pro essentially replaces your joy-cons with a traditional controller split in half. The add-on clips onto your Switch like a normal joy-con and includes grips, a traditional D-pad, back buttons, and even a Turbo button. It’s a total reimagining of the Switch’s control scheme that’s built for people who want that good old controller feel. Amazon currently has it on sale for $40, so give it a try if you’re itching for a different setup.

I’ll be upfront here: I am awful at Souls games. I’m not going to try to sound cool here. Games like Bloodborne are too hard for my stupid brain and it makes me mad. But there are plenty of people who are more patient than me out there who swear by this style of game. Honestly, more power to you, I say. If you’re looking for another game that will crush your soul for fun, you could consider Nioh. Like Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, the samurai soulslike features massive, punishing battles for masochists to enjoy. Eneba currently has the Complete Edition on sale for just $12 when you use the code TESLAOFCHINA at checkout (you’ll get a PC key for the game). That’s a particularly low price for pain, so check it out if you’re down for the challenge.

Okay, this headline is probably a little misleading. I don’t think you can actually take the hobbits to Isengard in Middle-earth: Shadow of War. While the action RPG is set in the world of Lord of the Rings, you mostly spend your time hacking and slashing through Sauron’s forces. There’s simply no time to take the hobbits to Isengard when the stakes are so high. There’s not even time to have second breakfast, if I’m being real with you. This is war, folks. If you want to get in on the battle, Eneba currently has the definitive edition of Middle-earth: Shadow of War for $5. Just enter the code SHADOWWAR at checkout and you’ll get a PC code for the game heavily discounted.

Update: We’re still cooped up inside. For anyone who’s been isolating since March, cabin fever has likely set in and stayed present for months now. That’s especially true for parents trying to find ways to keep their kids entertained inside. Here’s something that could help: Amazon has this Spider-Man themed Sinister Six card game on sale for $10 today and it has a particularly fun premise. You complete heists with a team of different Marvel supervillains. Players use cards with special abilities to loot locations, escape capture. The box comes with cards, tokens, and some colorful villain figures too. At 3-6 players, it’s the perfect size for family game night. Or you can pick up a copy so you’re ready to go as soon as lockdown ends.

You’ve probably played a racing game, but have you really ever played one? For hardcore racing enthusiasts, driving with a controller isn’t quite the same as hitting the open road with a real wheel. If you’re looking to upgrade your setup, Amazon has the Thrustmaster Scuderia Ferrari Race Kit discounted to $225. The package includes a Ferrari emblazoned headset as well as an elaborate racing wheel peripheral that’s compatible with old and new consoles, as well as PC. As a glance, it’s intimidating. There are more buttons and knobs on the wheel than I’d ever know what to do with. Then again, I don’t know how to drive a car at all, so this isn’t for me; it’s for the experts out there who have a need for speed. If nothing else, it just looks cool as hell.

Best Buy has a double dose of Kingdom Hearts deals today, so I hope you’re prepared. For starters, Kingdom Hearts 3 is down to $10. Considering that the RPG only came out one year ago, that’s a very low price. Kingdom Hearts 3 concludes the Disney/Final Fantasy hybrid trilogy that will most assuredly get another installment somewhere down the line. For Switch owners, the recently released Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory is now $45. The latest installment of the series is a rhythm game where players dance along to classic songs from the franchise. And yes, that includes Simple and Clean.

If the new year has you embarking on your fitness journey, trust me when I say one of the most important steps to getting in shape is to Drink. More. Water. Seriously. If your lips are dryer than the Sahara, no wonder you don’t have the energy to get out of bed. H2O won’t cure your depression or chronic fatigue, but it can certainly help keep your symptoms at bay. Take it from me—Swole Gabe. Lord knows I didn’t get this jacked overnight. Achieving this Dad Bod took years of pumping iron, non-stop, without a moment’s rest.

If you’ve never drunk water before, the first thing you’ll need is a reusable bottle. Sure, you could use a plastic cup, but keep in mind the contribution you’d be making to our planet’s ecological demise. Besides, Amazon’s deal of the day today sees Takeya insulated bottles, children’s sippy cups, adult sippy cups, and airtight pitchers on sale for up to 47% off. On the low end of that spectrum, you can get a 32-ounce stainless steel bottle, a 2-quart pitcher, or a 14-ounce kids’ bottle (with a straw!!!) for $16. Shell out a few bucks more and you can up the size of your bottle to 40 ounces, or just over a liter.

Whether you’re drinking water to quell the threat of dehydration or simply looking for a discreet way to drink in public, you might as well save a few coins by taking advantage of this thirst-quenching deal while it’s live.

This full chonky boy is stuffed to the brim with all the fluff and white down cotton filling they could get in there. With soft velvety polyester on the outside, the sweet sea critter is ready for hugging. Take $6 off this comforting creature for the rest of the day.

It’s fourteen inches long and a great gift for any age. Seals are natural clowns of the ocean and this replica’s adorable face will perk up any room you place it in. As this plush is not just cute it obviously doubles as a large pillow for lounging, cuddling, and of course naps. There is also an equally charming sloth and puppy available in the same size. But in my opinion, nothing beats this chubby water dog.

Is your pooch a grizzled companion? A veteran in the man’s best friend category? If so Fido’s might not be the pup he used to be in body but definitely still in spirit. They might need a comfy bed to literally lay their old bones down on while they chew on new ones. This comfy orthopedic dog bed is currently $8 off for the rest of the day.

But it’s not just senior doggos who can enjoy this, cats have been known to climb in and get cozy too. The extra small, small, and medium sizes are all on sale. This lightweight donut pillow is easy to move and clean. You can machine wash it and tumble dry it on low. I’ve got an older terrier and he loves this donut pillow that fits snuggly in the corner of my bedroom. Why the circular shape? Well, it gives support to the head and neck and eases the limbs of an older pupper. It also creates a bit of a faux hug around them making them feel safe and secure. I actually bought this again as my dog’s Christmas gift this year, it’s still a hit.

Pop them in the microwave, oven, freezer, and dishwasher, it’s all safe. You’ll get four rectangle containers, four square containers, and four round containers.

Union & Scale FlexFit Dexley Mesh Chair | $150 | Staples

Okay, maybe that’s a biiiiiit of an exaggeration. The Union & Scale FlexFit Dexley mesh chair is no Herman Miller, but it’ll get the job done alright. For just $150—40% off the list price—you can sit your ass down in a chair that’s certainly a step up from the dining chair you’ve been using since March. Finally, you can say goodbye to the pain that’s been permeating in your back since lockdown first began. And since no one’s employer is supplying them with the tools needed to be as productive at home as they were in the office, you might as well snatch up a chair similar to what you’d find in most workplaces anyway since it’s clear we’re going to be here a while.

As the name suggests, it’s got a mesh back and seat to keep your back cool, freeing you somewhat from the dangers of backne. Although it’s pretty generic overall, it does have all the bells and whistles when it comes to adjustments. That includes seat height, an adjustable headsrest, and lumbar support, as well as tilt tension and tilt lock. You can even shell out an extra $45 and have Staples assemble the chair for you, in case you’re like me and hate buying new furniture because of the extra step of putting it together. The FlexFit Dexley can support up to 275 pounds of weight and comes with a 7-year manufacturer’s warranty in case you notice any defects later on.


Dyson V7 Fluffy | $200 | Newegg

Let me tell you, the Dyson V7 is a game-changer, and I’m not just saying that because it’s on sale for $200 and we get a commission from each purchase. I bought one myself back in June and haven’t regretted it. Mounted to our wall, it’s much easier to store than a larger upright floor vac you might tuck away in a closet and rarely touch. I use mine almost every day to pick up kitty litter as my cat explodes from his spaceship. For smaller spaces, the canister yields a sufficient enough capacity that you can go about a month without emptying it out. Not to mention the actual process of dumping out the dirt and dust only requires the simple pull of a lever.

A $150 discount is not nothing, especially considering I paid notably more for mine back in June. While it may not have the longest battery life in the world, clocking in at just 30 minutes, those living in quaint apartments or rancher-style homes shouldn’t take more than that to give their place a nice sweep. Plus, it comes in a super vibrant blue shade right now with red and purple accents. Grab it while you can!

The benefits of weighted blankets are numerous and well documented. They’ve been known to lessen anxiety, give a sense of calm, and provide comfort. It’s based on the concept of deep pressure touch, a type of therapy that uses hands-on pressure to relieve stress. Sharper Image’s plush velveteen weighted blanket is $91 less today and can do all that.

The weight is evenly distributed and actually makes it feel as if you are being hugged while being snug. These blankets often help with the production of serotonin and melatonin so easing that anxiety and making sleep more sound. This particular blanket, aside from being extremely cozy, it’s twenty pounds and perfect for most adults. The high-density micro-beads are lead-free and BPA-free so less for you to worry about. If it gets a stain don’t stress, just spot clean it with soap and water and let it dry out in the air. Or you can just bring it to the dry cleaners.

If you spend a lot of time perusing social media, then there’s a good chance that you’ve come across Our Place’s Always Pan. It’s a beautifully-designed nonstick pan that you wouldn’t mind leaving on your stovetop, and thankfully, the function matches the form.

The Always Pan is billed as an 8-in-1 replacement for your cavalcade of lesser pans, as it can be a saute pan, skillet, steamer, saucepan, and more, and you can boil, braise, strain, and quite a bit more with this versatile kitchen tool. We’ve seen rave reviews from critics and everyday customers alike, who praise the Always Pan for its even cooking and clever design elements.

Gizmodo staff writer Victoria Song shared her take on bringing this wonder pan into a tiny Manhattan studio apartment:

“This thing is super easy to clean, cute on the stovetop, and finally, I have a goddamn place to rest my spatula. Also, I am super excited to trash, like, five pans that are roughly the same size that I have absolutely destroyed. Do you know how much cabinet space we’re going to reclaim?? Do you????

Right now, you can save $29 on the Always Pan direct from the manufacturer when you use promo code BYE2020 at checkout. These have been in short supply due to holiday demand, and most color options are set to ship in February. Still, this deal is sure to push that wait time back even further, so jump on this bargain while you can!


Tacklife Cordless Screwdriver | $14 | Amazon | Promo Code UOPDJXCP
Tacklife Cordless Screwdriver | $14 | Amazon | Promo Code UOPDJXCP

Although you might not get as powerful performance from a cordless electric screwdriver, sometimes your even closest outlet is out of reach. And if you’re without a wireless solution, well—excuse the pun—you’re screwed. As a backup, you should always have a cordless screwdriver somewhere around the house. Fortunately, this one from Tacklife is on sale for $14 on Amazon today when you enter the promo code UOPDJXCP at checkout. In total, with the discount applied, you’re looking at a total discount of 45% down from the original $28 list price. Now that’s podracing.

Despite having what I’m guessing is inferior performance to a stationary screwdriver, Tacklife’s cordless option boasts a decent 2,000mAh battery, rechargeable over microUSB. A three-level battery indicator lets you know when you’re about to run out of juice. Complete with a 4nm torque and 1/4" magnetic chuck, on paper it doesn’t sound too shabby. Speeds of up to 200 RPM round it out as a fine budget option for anyone whose DIY projects don’t require anything too vigorous.

This deal ends January 9, so if you’re in need of a new electric screwdriver snatch this one up while it’s still on sale, no strings (or cords) attached.

I think we can all agree paper straws are stupid. I get that you want to save the planet but at what cost? You get two sips in and it’s utterly useless. If you are like me and hate this hopeless alternative there is another option. Help the planet and never have to use paper nonsense again with this collapsible magnetic super straw. It’s 24% off and lets you do your part by cutting down waste on single-use plastic straws.

These straws are on sale in three colors aqua, navy, and pink. They fit snuggly in a cup as large as a twenty-four ounce. They’re made of tough stainless steel and the silicone tip makes it easier and more pleasing to drink out of. It’s is collapsible and comes with a cute carrying case to make using it much more convenient. And it easily and firmly assembles with magnets. You’ll also get a cleaning brush to make sure it stays in tip-top shape. This comes with a one-year warranty too.

Meterk 1500A Car Jump Starter | $50 | Amazon | Promo Code KINJIA001
Meterk 1500A Car Jump Starter | $50 | Amazon | Promo Code KINJIA001
Graphic: Gabe Carey

Need a jump? With an A rating from Fakespot, Meterk may not be a household name, but its 1500A portable jump starter is backed by a 4.6-star average review score out of over 3,500 ratings. Capable of restoring both your car and your phone to full health, the device boasts 18,000mAh of power, enough to bring gas cars up to 8 liters and diesels up to 6 liters back to life. On a full charge, Metertek claims it can jump-start your car around 30-40 times, although I have my doubts about that, especially since one verified reviewer said they were only able to manage eight. The company also says the starter can juice up your phone to 100% up to 10 times before you have to plug it into a socket for another 3 hours.

Still, a jump starter with this kind of performance would ordinarily set you back at least $70, this particular model included. Thanks to its dual-USB design, you can even connect two devices at once, one of which can take advantage of the quick-charge 3.0 port assuming it’s compatible. It’s unclear how long exactly it would take to fully charge, say, an iPhone 12 or Samsung Galaxy S20, but you can rest assured a car jump-start only takes about 1-3 seconds. As for its total lifespan, Metertek asserts this’ll keep cranking for a whole 3-5 years if you take proper care of it. Fortunately, that won’t be too difficult considering its rugged enclosure is rated for IP65 water resistance.

To get the discount, just clip the on-site coupon and enter our exclusive promo code KINJIA001. This deal expires January 15, so act now before you forget you saw this and inevitably miss out.

TODAY’S BEST LIFESTYLE DEALS

Whether you’re vegan, keto, lactose intolerant, or have a gluten allergy, it’s your constitutional right as an American to get fucking jacked. If your New Year’s resolution is to start working out regularly, don’t let dietary restrictions hold you back. Today only, Vega protein powders and shakes are on sale as one of Amazon’s deals of the day. These plant-based mixes contain no animal products, no dairy, no gluten, and absolutely no bullshit. All you have to do is mix one scoop with a cup to a cup and a half of water or non-dairy milk for a 20-gram splash of protein designed to energize.

Vega protein products come in a variety of flavors, including vanilla, chocolate, berry, and coconut almond and some even contain greens, for an extra boost of fiber that’ll keep you running (to the bathroom) throughout the day. While the Sport-branded items are obviously intended for exercise doers, it’s widely known that the vegan diet can be detrimental to your health without the right balance of protein, so many of these can also supplement meals that may not include the necessary proteins to prevent chronic fatigue. Despite what the Amazon listing says, I noticed a few of these items—such as the 13.2-ounce Vega Sport Premium—are on sale at much deeper discounts than 25%. Then again, as we all know, list prices don’t always align with the going rates.

ComfiLife’s gel-enhanced seat cushion has been dubbed the “Cadillac of coccyx cushions” by one Amazon reviewer, but it has received glowing endorsements from many more buyers: it has a 4.4-star rating from 37,000+ reviews.

This ergonomically-designed seat cushion is designed to reduce pressure on your tailbone while supporting recovery from various back conditions, plus it’s easily portable with a non-slip rubber base. Snag the gray version at Amazon right now for 39% off the list price.

If you’re looking for a long-wear lipstick with good color that won’t smudge Marc Jacobs Le Marc Crème Lipsticks are some of the best. I was gifted the color Boy Gorgeous, a berry rouge, for my birthday a few years ago and I wore it to death. I’ve since gone on to purchase the color Vinyl Dreams and haven’t been disappointed. Take 50% off five cream colors right now at Sephora.

These lipsticks are rich in pigment and glide on smoothly. They will absolutely get you through the bulk of the day. The suggested time is about 10 hours for one application and that seems about right. Marc Jacobs is synonymous with luxury and these lipsticks have that vibe for sure. The tube is even chic with each lipstick encased in a slick black home. My lips have never felt dry post wear. This is probably due to the antioxidant-rich seaberry and cocoa butter in each stick. There’s a subtle vanilla scent to each too. This is an awesome deal if you are looking to try this brand or make a few shade upgrades to your collection.

This tie-dyed pajama set is striking, to say the least. The color choice of burgundy is an interesting one. This polyester/rayon/spandex mess is 25% off for the rest of the day and unlike Lady Gaga’s dress, it can be washed and reworn. These jammies give new meaning to the term “meat sweats.” But they would be perfect for lounging after a hefty meal.

If you aren’t feeling this set there are four other options that are a bit more appealing color-wise. If cozy tie-dye is something you want to add to your slumber wear these PJs aren’t a bad choice. This will ship free.


While the vaccine is rolling out now, it’s clear that our masked days won’t be ending anytime soon. If you’re looking for some fresher or perhaps better masks than what you’ve been using the past several months, here’s a nice bonus offer from N95Maskco.

Right now, when you buy a pack of their CDC-certified N95 foldable face masks—which block up to 95% of airborne particles—you’ll get a free six-pack of cloth masks alongside. The prompt to add the free masks shows up after you add the N95 pack to your cart, so just keep an eye out at the top of the screen.

Whether you want to double up on N95 and cloth masks or just have options, one purchase can get it done. N95Maskco sells N95 mask bundles starting from 20 masks for $80 and 30 masks for $100, with higher-capacity packs pushing the per-mask price even lower.

Oh, the number of times I’ve either lost a tweezer or had no idea where one was. If you’re like me and you’ve had that $20 salon tweezer disappear it might be time to snag a few for a lot less. Tweezers are little tools that do such a big job. If you’ve had them go missing there is a panic that sets in because I will not leave the house with messy brows. This professional precision tweezer pack is just $8 and comes with a case to never misplace them again.

You’ll get four professional-grade tweezers for all your needs. Tame an unruly brow and make two of them, pluck an errant nose hair, grasp that ingrown strand, and pull a little piece of glass from your foot. These belong in your makeup bag and first aid kit. And remember precious tweezers aren’t just for beauty, they are great assistants in fixing jewelry, craft working, and even opening electronics. Made of durable stainless steel they can withstand many tasks, plus they come in a cute little travel bag. Just put them in an easy-to-access spot you’ll be able to recall. Medicine cabinet?

As Kanye once rapped on The College Dropout, “I can’t even pronounce nothing, pass that Ver-say-see.” And now that he’s back in the news for his alleged divorce from reality TV superstar Kim Kardashian, whether you’re mourning or celebrating the demise of their relationship, maybe it’s time to use it as an excuse to buy some Ver-say-see of your own. Though it was discounted earlier today at Walmart, an even weirder place to buy Versace cologne, you can still fetch a 6.7-ounce bottle of the upscale fashion brand’s Eros Eau De Toilette fragrance for $68 over on Amazon, marked down from its usual $75 tag.

If you don’t wear cologne all that often, the 3.4-ounce bottle is down to $53, from $86 MSRP, according to the Amazon list price. However, as my price history tracker revealed, the highest price I could find was $60 since last March, indicating it’s somewhat of an artificial price drop. Still, Versace doesn’t go on sale too often, and a $7 discount certainly isn’t nothing. I haven’t worn cologne in so long I’m tempted to pick up a bottle myself. After all, it feels good to smell good, and every now and then you have to treat yourself to something nice.

To anyone concerned about authenticity, user reviews are no doubt mixed, but the listing has been verified for quality by FakeSpot and it ships directly from the Versace Store via Amazon.


C4 Pre-Workout Mix (Blue Raspberry) | $13 | Amazon | Clip Coupon
C4 Pre-Workout Mix (Blue Raspberry) | $13 | Amazon | Clip Coupon
Image: Gabe Carey

Despite resembling the chemical waste in Springfield’s nuclear chemical plant, C4 Sport—in my experience at least—works wonders. NSF-certified and designed to motivate higher rep counts, therefore helping you build lean muscle, the pre-workout mix is normally found at nutrition stores like GNC for around $25, but for a limited time, you can shave 15% off the already marked down $17 price tag simply by clipping a coupon on Amazon. With that discount applied, the Blue Raspberry flavor (the best if you ask me) comes down to $13 apiece. Fruit Punch and Watermelon are also on sale, for $19 and $16, respectively. As someone who’s tried all three, I recommend Blue Raspberry since it has the least bad aftertaste of the bunch.

No matter which flavor you choose, expect copious amounts of caffeine to keep you stimulated throughout your workout, making the most of your limited time to work out given increasingly hectic work schedules. Take it before your workout and bolster your strength, thanks to creatine, an excellent and drug-free way to recover your aching body after particularly exhausting physical exertion. Make like Goku and take fewer breaks between sessions, work out longer and faster, and maintain focus on a budget with your pick of sugar-free pre-workout solution, all soluble in 6-8 fluid ounces of water.

By clipping the coupon, note that you do have to “Subscribe & Save” in order to take advantage of this deal, so I’d only recommend signing off if you’re comfortable with a recurring order being placed in your name. That being said, you can cancel your subscription at any time, so it’s pretty non-committal, and you’ll eventually have to restock anyway.

Star Wars art books are a real treat for fans, as the hefty hardcover tomes pack in hundreds of pieces of concept art complete with behind-the-scenes creative tidbits. And now we can do the same for The Mandalorian.

Released last month, The Art of Star Wars: The Mandalorian serves up 256 pages of gorgeous insight on the creation of the show’s first season. While it probably won’t give you canon story details about The Child, at least you can see how this whole wonderful thing came together. And right now, it’s 20% off the list price at Amazon.

If you’re looking for even more Mando reading material for the months ahead, you can pre-order February’s The Mandalorian: The Art & Imagery Collector’s Edition Vol. 2 and July’s The Mandalorian: The Ultimate Visual Guide, each 10% off the list price.


There’s so much to do in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla that I can’t imagine many people have hit the bottom of the content barrel yet. The open world game is filled with side-quests, collectibles, and secrets that give it a very long-tail. So fans probably aren’t sitting around wishing for more at this point. But for the extremely committed, the official Art of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla book is currently on sale. The regular hardcover is $26, but the nifty Deluxe Edition is $50. It comes with a decorative slipcover and a landscape lithograph. This 192-page book is the perfect way to experience the English countryside at your leisure. I mean, sure, you could just get a photography book of real world England, but where’s the fun in that?

Can’t get enough Cyberpunk 2077? Or simply waiting to keep playing until the game’s upcoming patches make the game functional on PS4 and Xbox One? In any case, Amazon currently has The World of Cyberpunk 2077 on sale for $25, so you can get deeper into Night City. The 192-page hardcover is a handy explainer on some of the game’s extensive lore. This is especially handy if you’re someone like me who found themselves lost trying to understand all of the game’s different factions and tech-jargon. It’s not a guide, but it seems like a handy glossary for anyone that finds themselves a little overwhelmed by everything happening in the story.
