Today’s Best Tech Deals

Razer Blade Stealth 13" Laptop | $1,200 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

The Razer Blade Stealth is a beautifully designed ultrabook with a lot of features gamers love, and right now you can pick it up for $400 less than its regular price just in time for back-to-school.

This particular 13" model offers an i7 4-core processor, an GeForce MX150 graphics card, 16GB RAM, and 256GB SSD. It promises up to 13 hours long battery life. That graphics card means you can actually game on it. There’s only a few remaining, so pick yours up ASAP.


Logitech G433 7.1 Wired Gaming Headset | $50 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

If you want a no-frills (i.e. no RGB lighting) headset, consider this Logitech G433 7.1 wired gaming headset. While it’s not flashy by any means, it packs a lot of features you’d want, including swappable cables, two types of ear cups, and a removable microphone, so you can use it as a pair of headphones.

This $50 price is the lowest price we’ve ever seen on this particular pair.


There’s no such thing as too much storage, but this... this 512GB microSDXC card from PNY may be overkill for most people. If you’re a dedicated Nintendo Switch user with a lot of games and plan on buying a whole lot more, this could be a solid $90 investment.

You’ll be able to fit a ton of games, movies and music with half a terabyte of storage. And this $80 price may seem steep, but it’s a match for an all-time low. If you end up buying this one, I applaud your commitment to storage.


Philips BT2500B/37 Compact Bluetooth Speaker | $12 | Woot
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Right now, you can pick up a Philips bluetooth speaker for just $12. It’s currently $3 more on Amazon and it’s diminutive frame means you can take it basically anywhere. While it’s unlikely to blow you away with its sound quality, it’s definitely going to be better than playing music on your phone.


Normally $150-170, you can grab a pair of the Jabra Elite 65t truly wireless earbuds, for a low $100. They promise up to 5 hours of use on a single charge with an additional 15 hours thanks to its charging case. They’re also $50 cheaper than Airpods.


Mpow H8 Noise Canceling Bluetooth Headphones | $24 | Amazon | Promo code MPOW161AB

While I’m sure the sound quality and noise cancellation abilities of these Mpow over-ear Bluetooth headphones don’t live up to the likes of Sony’s WH1000XM3s line or Bose’s QC35s, they annihilate the competition on price at just $24 (with promo code MPOW161AB).

Advertisement

We’ve seen a lot of ~$40 noise canceling headphones, including several from Mpow, but $24 is basically unprecedented. I haven’t tried this exact model, but I’ve tried others from Mpow, and they’ve all been perfectly decent.

If you’re on a budget, and want to drown out airplane noise or your annoying coworkers, they could be worth trying out. Just be sure to use promo code MPOW161AB at checkout to get the deal.


Adjustable Aluminum Laptop Stand | $16 | Amazon | Use code VS3S5FSZ
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

If you’re using a laptop on a desk without anything to prop it up, you’re neck is gonna have a bad time. Prop up your laptop with this discounted laptop stand and use a mouse and keyboard. The best part: this thing is freakin’ portable. Take it places.

Use the coupon code VS3S5FSZ at checkout to bring the price down to just $16.

You can get the X-Chef Roll Up Dish Drying Rack for $17 on Amazon when you clip 10% coupon and use promo code U92RPA36.

Yamazaki takes universal household organization problems—storing shoes, organizing toilet paper rolls, wrangling cables—and creates some of the most beautiful solutions out there.

Today at Huckberry, several of their wares are on sale for 15% off. Inside, you’ll find solutions for specific options—pet bowls, a slim cart to go next to your fridge, the aforementioned toilet paper holder—and also beautiful furniture that can work in any home, like side tables, coat hooks, and shelves. It all combines black stainless steel and wood in beautiful and interesting ways, and I want to buy all of it.


The best food storage containers are glass food storage containers, because they’re microwave, freezer, dishwasher, and even oven-safe. This set of four small containers from Anchor Hocking is a no-brainer at just $7, especially if you’re like me and have slowly lost a lot of containers and lids (but never a container and its matching lid) over the years.

Today’s price is an all-time low, and the first time Amazon’s had it for under $10.


Black Forest Gummy Bears, 6 Pounds | $9 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

Personally, I’m the kind of person who believes that if something costs less than $10 and I like it, I have no excuse not to buy it. That has probably cost me $10,000 at this point, but who’s to say. You have no reason not to buy a delicious six-pound back of Black Forest Gummy Bears when it only costs $9 on Amazon.


Up to 25% Off Kidde Fire Safety Equipment | Home Depot
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

If your smoke alarm or carbon monoxide detector came with your home, you might want to update that ASAP. You need to change the batteries in the alarm every year, and the entire system every 10 years. Do yourself a favor and snag a Kidde alarm for up to 25% at Home Depot, today only.

During this sale, you can get a Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Combination Detector with Voice Alarm and Ionization Sensor (6-pack) for 25% off. If your smoke detector is up to date, you can still get other fire safety equipment. You can stay prepared for anything with a $22 Kidde Recreational Fire Extinguisher (2-pack).

Butcher Box just added a new meat to its arsenal: wild-caught Atlantic sea scallops! Yes, the chicken nuggets of the sea can be delivered to your front door, and if you sign up for a new membership right now, you’ll get a pound of scallops and a pack of bacon thrown in for free, in addition to whatever else would have been in your box anyway.

Advertisement

You may be tempted to make bacon-wrapped scallops, and I wouldn’t blame you if you did, but there’s nothing wrong with enjoying them separately, on their own merits.

Your bonus come bundled with any of Butcher Box’s pre-selected boxes, which are priced at $129 for 24 servings, or $238 for 48 servings, which can be delivered every 30 or 60 days. For a nominal surcharge, you can also build a completely custom box, with your choices of proteins.


Anker’s home goods brand, Eufy, put its uber-popular copper string lights back on sale today for $10, or about $7 than usual. They’re one of the most popular products in Kinja Deals history, and come with a remote to control and dim them that you’ll definitely never lose.

No dorm room is complete without a set of these haphazardly draped from something.

You don’t need a Shop-Vac until you really, really need a Shop-Vac, so prepare for the leaks life throws your way with this 8-gallon model, marked down to an all-time low $73 today. Unlike a regular vacuum that you can only use on dry messes, a Shop-Vac can suck up liquids as well.

Graphic: Chelsea Stone

That sponge you use to clean off the plates that touch your food? Yeah, it’s absolutely covered in germs. Throw that disgusting thing in the trash ASAP, and order these $6 silicone dishwashing gloves, complete with built-in scrubbers on the palms, from Amazon. Silicone won’t trap water, and thus, tons of mildew, like sponges will, plus they’ll keep your hands safe from all that dishwater and old stuck-on food. Just be sure to buy before this deal goes down the drain.


Two-Pack Backseat Organizers With Tablet Holders | $14 | Amazon | Promo code VJTZR7BM
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you’re taking your kids on a long road trip, and don’t want your backseat to look like an episode of Hoarders...I’m sorry, you’re probably out of luck, even with these seatback organizers. But they’re cheap ($14 for two of them), they have built-in tablet holders, and they can’t hurt, right?

Today’s Best Lifestyle Deals

Cygolite Streak 450 Lumen Rechargeable Bike Light | $30 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

I don’t recommend biking at night, but I whole-heatedly endorse picking up this awesome Cygolite Streak 450 lumen bike light for a low $30. This is $15 off it’s regular price and is the lowest it’s ever been. This light has a lot of helpful features you’d want in a bike light: it’s rechargeable, comes bundled with a back light, and the bright 450 lumen light will last 100 hours on a single charge.


MNML’s The Highlander backpack gave me a taste of luxury, and I’m not sure if I can ever go back.

Advertisement

At first glance, the bag is a definite looker—I received many compliments on it as I walked around Brooklyn. And it’s beauty isn’t just leather-deep. It offers a lot of flourishes you’d expect from a more expensive bag.

The leather is plush, soft and weatherproof, and the straps have a comfortable layer of felt padding. It has beautiful lines of a suitcase or modern streetwear bag, and all of the materials used are top-shelf.

Advertisement

Unlike a regular backpack, it opens up like a briefcase, and the inside is thoughtfully laid out, with a number of large pockets for a multiple outfits for a long weekend. Most backpacks, by comparison, only have one or two long-ish pockets for a laptop or tablet, and the rest of the space is essentially a sack. That means your stuff gets jumbled around and loose clothes get wrinkled. Suffice to say, The Highlander doesn’t have this problem.

On the back, you’ll also find a dedicated pocket for a laptop. And on the front, there’s a nice space for your wallet or passport.

But, it’s not perfect. I wish it had fasteners for the excess length in the adjustment straps. And it doesn’t have a dedicated holder for a water bottle.

To be clear, the Highlander isn’t really meant as a commuter/work bag.

It’s a little bigger than what you’d want to use riding the subway or for use in school. Think of it more like a backpack designed for a weekend trip, with enough space for two-four days worth of clothes (depending on how often you change your jeans.)

Advertisement

And with a Kickstarter starting price of over $200, it’s a tough sell for most people. It’s not something I could use everyday or even take hiking (it’s far too exquisite for rugged activity.) The bag is so beautiful, I feel a slight sadness knowing I don’t travel more than a few times a year.

But if you travel often and want a stylish, comfortable alternative to a leather duffel, you’re not likely to get something of a better value than the Highlander. Prices start at $234 for the Highlander Backpack made with leather and canvas, all the way up to the all-leather model for $325 through their Kickstarter campaign.


Summer is drawing to a close, and that means it’s time once again for REI’s annual summer clearance, offering huge markdowns on thousands of past season styles from the biggest brands.

Advertisement

Just because it’s Summer Clearance doesn’t mean you can’t find gear for the upcoming colder weather. For example, Patagonia’s ultra popular Better Sweater (men | women), the Arc’teryx Proton FL Insulated Hoodie (men) and The North Face’s ThermoBall insulated jacket (men | women) are all 50% off, while supplies last.

If you have affinity for certain outdoor brands, you can also just head to REI’s All Sales page, and sort by your favorite brands.

Up to 50% Off Past Season Products | Patagonia
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Fall is almost here! And Patagonia has vests, puffers, pullovers, and zip-ups galore, all of which are great for wearing alone on warmer days or all at once when it’s an arctic tundra outside. Right now, the the anti-Silicon Valley folks are majorly marking down their Web Specials section for a limited time with up to 50% off their past season products. So it would behoove you to pile everything you can into your cart ASAP, so you can pile everything onto yourself during the cold months ahead.

Not to throw shade, but your sunglasses could probably use an upgrade. Hit up Nordstrom Rack where, this weekend only, more than 300 pairs of already discounted designer pairs are an extra 25% off.

Sure, not every alma mater is included in the sale, but for those institutions that are, that’s half the price of what you’d usually for a sweatshirt like this. Just be sure to get that gear today; this touchdown of a deal will be gone tomorrow.

Private Internet Access Old Price Sale | Private Internet Access

Back in March, Private Internet Access (our readers’ favorite VPN service) raised its prices for the first time ever. And while our readers can still get an exclusive 3-years for $99 plan, they just lowered their other plans back to their old prices for a limited time.

The reason this is a big deal is that you can renew your membership as many times as you want at whatever price you originally paid. Once the prices go back to normal, you’ll still be locked into the lower rate.

Here are the new (old) promotional prices, along with what you’d normally pay:

  • 1 month: $6.95 (down from $9.99)
  • 1 year: $39.95 (down from $71.88)

Clearly, the annual plan is the sweet spot here if you don’t want to commit to the three-year plan, but $6.95/month for 10 simultaneous connections, clients for just about every conceivable device, and servers in 32 countries (foreign Netflix, anyone?). We aren’t sure when the prices will go back up, so you probably want to lock in your account ASAP.


You don’t have to be a music major to get an extensive musical education, thanks to Amazon. Right now, Prime Students can enjoy Amazon Music Unlimited for just $1 per month—because you should be putting your money toward more important things, like tuition and books and stuff. You’ll gain unlimited access to over 50 million songs on-demand, with the ability to listen offline and via Alexa. Finally, all those hours in class have paid off.

Today’s Best Gaming Deals

The PlayStation Classic doesn’t have Suikoden II, which means it’s a skip for me. But people who know better than me say it’s relatively straightforward to add some yourself. And even if you don’t bother hacking it, there’s still plenty worthwhile pre-loaded games to keep you entertained.

While $100 was a lot to ask, this sale makes it *a lot* easier to just bite the bullet and buy it for $20 already.

Nintendo Labo Variety Kit | $25 | Best Buy
Nintendo Labo Robot Kit | $25 | Best Buy
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Labo is Nintendo at its weird, wonderful best. The cardboard Variety Kit can turn your Nintendo Switch into a fishing pole, a motorcycle, a piano, and more fun toys. Again, this is cardboard!

So if you have a Switch and you have a kid (that second part is optional, it’s okay to play with this yourself), $25 is a solid $35 discount on the Variety Kit, and the Robot Kit, which literally turns your Switch into a freakin’ mech suit, is also on sale for $25 at Best Buy.


Catan 5-6 Player Expansion | $15 | Amazon | Clip the $.83 coupon

What’s better than begging three other people to trade you a single brick in exchange for two wheats? Begging five other people, one by one, to trade you a single brick for two wheats!

Normally $20, the Catan 5-6 player expansion is down to $15 today after you clip the coupon on the page. But I swear, I’ll buy it for you if you give me that brick, I’m not even joking.


Jackbox Party Packs are a great addition to any party, and now you can get a bunch of them for not that much money with Humble’s latest bundle.

As usual, you can pledge as much or as little money as you want (as long as it’s at least a dollar), but you’ll only unlock every title by giving $15 or more. Games include all of the first four Party Packs, a bunch of volumes of the classic You Don’t Know Jack trivia game, and a handful of other standalone games as well.

Unfortunately, Party Pack 5 (the best one) isn’t included, but there are still a bunch of great party games in the other four.

Deals You May Have Missed

Sony 6.2" CarPlay Receiver | $236 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

You don’t need to buy a new car to experience Apple CarPlay or Android Auto; you just need $236 for this Sony receiver, plus whatever it costs to install it (if you can’t do it yourself).

Advertisement

That’s one of the best deals we’ve seen on a CarPlay receiver, and it comes just in time for the major CarPlay enhancements Apple is rolling out for iOS 13.


Twelve South HiRise 2 | $28 | Amazon

Twelve South’s HiRise is the most attractive smartphone stand you can buy, and according to The Verge, a pretty great Nintendo Switch dock to boot. It normally sells for $40, but the black model is marked down to just $28 right now. We’ve seen it as low as $20, albeit very briefly, but otherwise, this is a very good deal.


CyberPower Swivel Surge Protector | $11 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

This is everything you could want in a $11 surge protector. Six outlets, two USB ports, and a swiveling design that minimizes the distance the whole setup will project out from your wall once everything’s plugged in.

This price is $5 less than usual and is the lowest price we’ve seen since August.


iHealth Thermometer | $20 | Amazon | Clip the $7 coupon

While it might not be cold and flu season right now, that doesn’t mean that fevers don’t exist. If you hate spreading germs, you probably despise thermometers that go in your mouth. If that sounds like you, you should get the iHealth Thermometer because it doesn’t even need to touch you to read your temperature. Right now, it is $20 when you clip the $7 coupon. You can get a reading in as fast as one second, which makes it the perfect thermometer to use on little kids who can’t sit still.

Contributing Gizmodo Editor Andrew Liszewski said:

About the size of a candy bar, the iHealth looks more like a scifi prop than a medical device, with an all-white finish, a glossy top, and a single button on the face for taking measurements. It’s easy to clean, which is a big part of the device’s appeal, given it never actually has to make physical contact with someone who’s sick.


Kyoku Damascus Steek Steak Knives | $129 | Amazon | Promo code KYOKUXE6

Do your steak knives need to be made from Japanese Damascus Steel, complete with undulating ripples that you’d expect to see on like, Jon Snow’s sword? No, they’re steak knives.

But when do you pull out steak knives? On steak night. And on steak night, you want to feel fancy. I say treat yourself. Get a set of four for $129 with promo code KYOKUXE6.

And invite me over for steak night, please.


Thermapen Mk4 | $76 | ThermoWorks

Our readers are big fans of the ever reliable Thermapen, but quality comes with a price tag to match. That’s why you should take advantage of this Open Box Sale on like-new Thermapen Mk4 models, down from its usual price of $99 to $76 in any color. The sale lasts for a limited time, so don’t get burnt by waiting too long to add one to your kitchen tool box.


Cuisinart PerfecTemp Electric Kettle | $43 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

For those who don’t need a gooseneck kettle for pourover coffee, and aren’t willing to spring for the ultimate tea maker, the Cuisinart PerfecTemp is one of the best (and best looking) electric kettles around. It’s down to $43 at Walmart right now, the best price we’ve ever seen. Just be sure to grab yours before this deal boils dry.


Daewoo Retro Compact Refrigerator, Mint Green, City Blue, and Cream Beige | $229 | Amazon
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

College move-in day is almost here, which means young adults are on the hunt for mini fridges. If you love a good retro aesthetic, this Daewoo Retro Compact Refrigerator is on sale in three colors: Mint Green, City Blue, and Cream Beige. Those colors are marked down by $30 each. The mint green model would look stylish on any Pinterest board.

For something mini, this fridge has plenty of space for meals, snacks, and beverages, with two shelves and a drawer unit. The shelf on the door can hold full bottles of soda, milk, and tea and even has a little compartment to store your butter. Some Amazon reviewers have even removed the inner freezer door to use it as added fridge space. If you’re not moving into a dorm, this still works great for a home office or man cave. It also appears to be a hit for tiny homes!
