If you’ve been waiting for the perfect time to see what QLED is all about, check out the Samsung Q60, with the 65-inch model dropping to an astonishingly low $700 at Amazon.

Granted, this is the 2019 model and there are newer panels since available, but the Q60 is a really good 4K TV with competitive picture quality driven by its Quantum Dot display. Combined with HDR 10+ support, you’ll get ultra-vivid color in your movies and games, plus you’ll have Samsung’s maturing smart TV platform that brings all your favorite content front and center.

As you’ve seen before, we are fans of Anker. They make quality products at affordable prices, pretty much the dream. For the next 3 days, you can take $7 off these Soundcore Liberty Neo True Wireless Earbuds.

Soundcore is Anker’s audio brand and really where their bread is butter is if you know what I mean. Millions in sales, they’re the real deal, and these earbuds are no different. What makes these earbuds special is in the design. They are made from graphene which is harder than steel and lighter than other drivers on the market. This gives a clear, clean, and bold sound. The bass has been revamped and increased so you feel the music.

With Bluetooth 5.0, there’ll be no skips or drops, freeing up time to enjoy hours of uninterrupted listening. And, best of all, one charge will give you almost 4 hours of wireless playtime plus an extra nine from the charging case. This is a limited sale so if you’re interested buy these now.

Free 1-day shipping for Prime members and this deals runs until July 26.

SideDeal is great for just these types of items, an extra speaker that’s not expensive that you can put outside, take with you, or put anywhere in your home. And if anything happens to it, no biggie. I’ve gotten a few Bluetooth speakers like this from them and they all end up in the yard. This MiniBoom one is now different and it’s only $8.

This full room tiny but mighty speaker pairs quickly and easily with any Bluetooth device in a range of over thirty feet. A nice feature with this MiniBoom is that it has a speaker and a built-in microphone for calls. With the simple touch of a button, you can make and receive phone calls. You’ll get up to five hours of musical fun off of one charge. It’s basically palm-sized so it’s ideal for travel so bring it camping or to the beach. And just in case you want to connect the old fashion way it comes with a 3.5mm auxiliary cable. It’s user friendly with impressive sound, all for $42 less.

If you’ve read a few of our pieces on SideDeal before and you like what you’ve seen they offer a $5 monthly fee to get free shipping on all of your orders no matter how many. Otherwise, it’s a flat rate of $8.

While I haven’t tested the Bose QuietComfort 35 II Bluetooth wireless active noise-canceling headphones myself, Adam Clark Estes, a Bose skeptic, reviewed them for Gizmodo in 2016 and had this to say:

I’ve never loved Bose headphones. Out of the box, they always felt a bit flimsy, and on my head, the audio quality seemed subpar for the price. At least that’s what I thought before I tried the new QuietComfort 35 Wireless cans. The noise cancellation is peerless, and the sound is terrific—for the most part.

With three levels of noise cancelation, Alexa voice assistant support, a sound-isolating dual-microphone system, and easy pairing through the Bose Connect app, these cans are the closest rival to my personal favorite Sony WH-1000XM3s, and for the first time since December, they’re 20% off on Amazon in black and silver variants. Chances are, you won’t see this price again until at least Prime Day or Black Friday. Snap ‘em up while the price is at an all-time low. And if you don’t mind rocking the rose golds, they’re even cheaper at $236.

The new Anker PowerWave II Charging Pad has come through at a low price of $22 with the promo code “ANKERB19", so you can charge iPhones and Androids at a pretty good speed. The best part is that you don’t have to take off your phone case to get a good charge! It can deliver power with cases up to 5mm thick, so don’t worry about your phone mysteriously falling and breaking its back on the cold, hard floor. I’d grab it before it’s gone!

1More has produced some of the most quality audio pieces over the last few years. These beautiful eye-catching ColorBuds are no different in quality and are a brand new line for the company. Amazon shoppers can enjoy 20% off of these right now.

These are not only totally fashion-forward (coming in four colors) but they are a great mid-level buy. They’re not the cheapest earbuds out there but they certainly aren’t the most expensive given all they can do. You’ll get almost seven hours of playtime off of a single charge and can stretch that to twenty-four hours in the charging case. But even just charging for fifteen minutes will get you three hours of listening enjoyment. Reviewers have noted that they are both comfy and secure so no worries if you plan on working out with these. They pair fast and maintain a solid connection no matter where you take them. These are absolutely gorgeous and bring a little personality to what’s often a drab item in terms of hues. And given 1More’s track record you won’t be disappointed.

Prime members will also enjoy same-day shipping.

Nothing beats the backdrop of your favorite tunes while you blitz through your work or chores. Usually, a slick pair of headphones would be the way to go, but if you’ve got the place to yourself, or really need to drown out the construction right outside, a bluetooth speaker couldn’t hurt.

Right now, Bose’s Soundlink Bluetooth Speaker is down to $99 on Amazon, saving you $30. It also comes in a bunch of neat colors, so you can add some pop to your home office. You can even pick up a couple and pair them together for stereo sound. It’s also waterproof, so it’s good for a session or two of shower karaoke.

Entertainment is one of the most shocking monthly expenses when you’re poking around the bank account looking for ways to save. Some people spend hundreds to keep themselves joyous without even realizing it. The cable bill probably adds the biggest singular chunk, though, and if you’ve deemed it’s time to cut back, you have no shortage of options to fill in the gaps. If you’ve decided you’re fine with over-the-air broadcasts using an HD antenna but you still want your DVR features, an Amazon Fire TV Recast is an excellent buy, especially at $80 off, and especially if you’re already knee-deep in Amazon’s digital content ecosystem.

Combined with an antenna and an Amazon Fire device—whether that’s Stick, Cube, TV, or Echo Show—you’ll be able to record up to four shows simultaneously, and it’ll hold up to 150 hours worth of recordings. You can also grab the two-stream, 75-hour unit for $150 if you’re dealing with a smaller household. And it wouldn’t be an Amazon product without Alexa butting into everyone’s business, so she’ll be there to help you find stuff to watch, too.

Personally speaking, rechargeable batteries are invaluable. Sure, you pay more up front for less physical cells, but you can easily rotate them in and out for charging, you should save money in the long run, and you’ll cut down on some of the hardest waste there is to discard. But if you still have a regular and peculiar need for disposable AA batteries, give Anker’s a shot. There are 48 of these alkaline batteries in one package for just $13. Anker advertises a 10-year shelf life, so you should stock up now even if you aren’t planning to use them right away.

Working from your laptop’s screen is fine, and you’ll probably be able to get by gaming on a smaller screen with little frustration, but larger monitors can give you more space for your work, or for your streams. There’s all sorts of monitors out there, ranging from a couple hundred bucks to a couple thousand (not including the stand, in the worst of cases), with varying screen resolutions you may or may not fret over. Acer’s KG271 27" Gaming Monitor, with a 1080p resolution, isn’t the highest-res screen you can grab, but it’s a heck of a lot cheaper than higher-end monitors, and it’ll offer enough to get by. Plus, you won’t have to squint as you try to fit all your windows onto your work laptop’s smaller screen. Right now, it’s $40 off at Newegg, bringing it down to $160, so you can give your desk a nice upgrade without bearing too high a cost.

Love Fortnite? You’re certainly not alone! But if you happen to be like me and absolutely suck at using keyboard and mouse controls, maybe AUKEY’s Fortnite themed keycap set can help you out. Each key used in the battle royale is labeled with simple, easy to read at a glance icons that can help you stop fumbling around your keyboard and start building with ease. The keycaps can fit on any mechanical keyboard with cross-shaped switches (which is pretty common). The whole set is only $14 if you clip the coupon!

It won’t help your aim, though.

2K is discounting some of its best collections on the Nintendo Switch. Snag three games each in the BioShock Collection and Borderlands Legendary Collection for $35 each.

You can also still grab the XCOM 2 Collection for $40, which is not as sweet of a deal on paper as it only packs one game, but it comes with all the DLC, and considering I’d still pay $60 for the base game in 2020, I’ll say it’s still worth buying.

The Shenmue III announcement was like a rollercoaster of emotions. The reveal happened during a Sony E3 press briefing, which many thought meant we were in for a first-party continuation of one of the Dreamcast’s many gems. What we got instead was a Kickstarter link with a bunch of stretch goals that did more to douse our fire than ignite it.

Shenmue III—is not the game it should have or could have been, but it’s still worth playing if you’re interested in avenging Ryo Hazuki’s family and recovering the Phoenix Mirror. To be honest, $60 was a bit much to ask for this at launch, but the game is sitting at a cool $20 at Amazon, so go ahead and throw one into the cart if Ghost of Tsushima somehow failed to command all your attention.

Some Switch titles just don’t go on sale very often, and one of those titles is Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

A discount is a discount!

Seriously, it’s worth it too. With all sorts of tracks, characters, karts, and modes, there is endless fun in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for game nights. It’s beginner friendly too, so most players won’t get completely beat over and over like they might with other games. Fun for everyone!

Puyo puyo! Over the years, there have been many iterations of Kirby, all of them adorable. This art book chronicles the history of the pink puffball and his various enemies as well as the concept art that helped them take shape. It also features, according to the description on the back cover, “exclusive notes from creators and artists who have brought Kirby to life throughout the years.” Personally, I’m fascinated with the making of Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, whose in-game models were literally sculpted from clay.

However, if you’re looking for a good recent Kirby game to pick up alongside this collection, I recommend Kirby: Planet Robobot in which, yes, our adorable lil’ buddy suits up in a mech to fight back against an evil corporation gentrifying his home planet with destructive technologies. For a recent, not-as-good-but-still-okay Kirby game on Nintendo Switch, Kirby: Star Allies is still fun to play co-op with friends, despite its shortcomings.

If you still haven’t played Death Stranding, then you’re in luck, as it just came out for PC a few days ago and it’s already marked down 20% as part of Green Man Gaming’s newly launched Summer Sale. Join Norman Fetus in 2019's best strand game about the gig economy. From what I’ve heard, it’s the perfect game to play at this moment in time, and for good reason: it’s about a courier who also has to dispose of corpses found lying around because America has fallen apart. It serves as sharp, if hamfisted political commentary AND comic relief.

In her review for Kotaku, Heather Alexandra said it best:

It is a story about fatherhood. It is a broad dig at the gig economy. It is deeply concerned with upcoming environmental disaster and American politics, old and new.

Death Stranding is also about throwing grenades made from your own piss and shit at ghosts. It is about hiking alone in the wilderness for hours. It is a tireless grind.

Apart from Death Stranding, other newer, albeit less recent releases like Red Dead Redemption II, Shadow of the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition, and Borderlands 3 are also on sale. Sort through the whole selection over on Green Man Gaming’s Summer Sale lander and report back with any remarkable findings.

You can also do this with the rocker buttons on the top panel which is absolutely sleek and aesthetically gorgeous. But Marshall is known for really chic and cool looking speakers, the design is important to them and it shows. I’ve put it in my kitchen and both my roommate and I use it and all it’s Amazon Alexa features, especially while cooking. Alexa can even hear us in the dining room so the far-field microphone really does the job. It did take me a little bit of time to get it to connect properly but I’m not sure if it was my WiFi or just me having ‘user error,’ but once I was locked in it’s been perfect. I’ve got the white option and it comes in black as well. Both are on sale.

As I expressed in an earlier Co-op, I’m on the prowl for my first cordless vacuum. So while I can’t vouch for the Dyson V7 Origin myself, hearsay suggests it’s one of the better options out there (let me know what you think in the comments), and Dyson generally makes high-quality products which makes this deal hard to ignore: Newegg is selling the Dyson V7 Origin Cordless Vacuum, down 50% from MSRP.

Advertisement

In reality, this vacuum hasn’t been $400 in a while, if ever. On Amazon, where it currently sits at $290, the list price is $400. Still, you’re saving $90 over Amazon, where the lowest it’s been is $230. With a 0.14-gallon bin and 75% more brush bar power than its predecessor, the Dyson V6, you’ll get the capacity and the performance of some proper corded vacuums without any of the limitations. Better still, the head is interchangeable, so it can double as a car vac or traditional hand vac if need be.

Chances are, you’ve probably been spending more time in front of a screen lately. If your days are anything like mine, they probably look like this: spending eight hours in front of your work computer, logging off to doomscroll on Twitter for a bit, and then sinking into the couch and watching a few episodes of something on Netflix. That’s a lot of screens!

Blue light glasses, which filter out some of the rays that bug your eyes, can help, and you can get 10% off a pair of glasses at GlassesUSA right now. There’s lots of frames to choose from, too.

Believe it or not, we’re still in the midst of a pandemic, which means you should be wearing a mask every time you leave the house, no exceptions. That said, I totally understand the skepticism from a fashion perspective. The standard cloth masks, though essential for flattening the curve and saving lives assuming they’re all you have to work with, are undoubtedly an eyesore.

Frank and Oak, a budding Montreal-based apparel company focused on sustainability have introduced their own line of 100% cotton face masks to put your concerns over appearance to rest. Available in five colorways including navy blue, you can mix and match your choice of two reusable masks as you see fit. The reversible, non-medical face masks feature adjustable ear straps designed to maximize comfort, a twist tie nose bridge for a tailored fit, and a built-in pouch in case you wish to append a filter.

Advertisement

While the masks themselves cost $24 for a pack of two, shipping at Frank and Oak is free only on orders that exceed $49, so you may need to splurge on three to subtract the delivery fees at checkout. In fact, due to manufacturing shortages, the site listing advises against purchasing more than three sets. Considering how hard it is to find washable face masks as good looking as these, much less any in stock, I’d jump on this offer while supplies last.
