TODAY’S BEST TECH DEALS

Orzly Apple Watch Dock | $4 | Amazon

You didn’t spend hundreds of dollars on an Apple Watch just to have to fish the annoying charging cable out from behind your nightstand night after night. This $4 dock will keep your charger firmly in place, and props up your watch at a great angle for its surprisingly useful (if you have decent vision) nightstand mode.


Apple Watch Series 4 40mm | $349 | Amazon | Multiple models on sale
Apple Watch Series 4 44mm | $379 | Amazon | Multiple models on sale

The Apple Watch as a product line may have had a rocky launch, but its latest iteration, the Series 4, is a seriously impressive leap forward. So whether you’re finally upgrading your original model, or even getting your very first wearable, it’s the one you should buy, especially on sale.

For a limited time, Amazon’s got both the 40mm and 44mm versions marked down by $50, with your choice, in a few different color/band combos. The rubbery sports band looks surprisingly nice in person, while the Sport Loop is like a very high quality velcro.


If you missed out on all the Super Bowl TV sales, don’t fret. This 55" 4K Samsung is on sale for $400 and, if you want one that’s a little smaller, this 50" unit is $50 less at Walmart right now. To be clear, these are not Samsung’s best TVs, but both include smart apps, HDR, and even a clean cable routing solution that you won’t find from any other manufacturer.

FYI, you’ll need to add these units to the cart to see the discounted price.


NEWSYNC 27 inch 165Hz 1ms 1440p QHD Gaming Monitor with AMD FreeSync | $265 | Amazon | Clip coupon on page
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Imagine the perfect gaming monitor. You’d probably want something with a super fast refresh rate, large screen, anti-tearing software and one that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Imagine if I told you, you can get one with 2560 x 1440 (QHD) resolution for under $300.

Now, if I said it was a monitor from a brand I’ve never heard of. Would you care? The answer is, sort of, yes.

And while I can’t wholeheartedly endorse this monitor, I’ve got to say it’s at least worth a look. It checks off all of the boxes you’d want from a gaming monitor and pretty darn cheap for what it’s offering.

If you’re feeling adventurous and want to skip Asus/Samsung gaming monitors, definitely check this one out. Just make sure to clip the coupon on the page to save the extra $15.


Wi-Fi range extenders aren’t a cure-all for your networking issues. But if you have one particular device in one particular corner of your house that has trouble pulling in a reliable signal, it can be a much cheaper solution than buying a whole new router or mesh networking kit.

Advertisement

This AC750 extender from TP-Link includes an ethernet port for wired devices, app support so you can easily set it up from your phone, and even a built-in smart plug that works just like TP-Link’s other smart plugs. Considering you’d usually spend at least $19 on a smart plug anyway, this is like getting the range extender features for free.


30% off $50+ Anker Purchase | eBay | Discount shown at checkout
Graphic: Shep McAllister

While you’ve probably purchased most of your Anker gadgets from Amazon, the company actually hosts an extensive eBay storefront, and they’re taking an extra 30% off today when you spend $50 or more. The sale includes battery packs, charging cables, headphones, USB-C chargers...you know, things we all need.

Plus, some items are available refurbished at an additional discount, so you can really stack on the savings. Just note that you won’t see the discount until you get to checkout.


If you’re all in on the Google ecosystem, you can put two more Google Home Mini smart speakers in your house for $48 today, courtesy of Woot. This is one of the best deals we’ve seen on these since Black Friday, and not bad considering they usually sell for $49 each.


Anker SoundCore Spirit Sport Bluetooth Earbuds | $25 | Amazon | Promo code HPSPIRIT1

At first glance, Anker’s SoundCore Spirits look a lot like the reader-favorite SoundBuds Slims, but they do have a few key upgrades. The big one is IPX7 water resistance, plus added sweat-countering measures from Anker that make them ideal for working out, especially compared to the IPX5-rated Slims. They also last a bit longer with an eight hour battery (vs. seven), include a built-in cord shortener, and should have a bit more bass as well.

The SoundCore Spirits have sold for $30-$40 since they launched last year, but today, they’re just $25 with promo code HPSPIRIT1, a match for the best deal we’ve seen.

TODAY’S BEST HOME DEALS

Up to 70% Off Bed & Bath | Wayfair
Image: Wayfair

You probably spend a good amount of time in your own bedroom and bathroom, so treat yourself to any upgrade your heart desires (or your home requires) with Wayfair’s Semi-Annual Bed & Bath Sale, happening now. Take up to 70% off a wide range of accents and essentials, including mattresses, vanities, throw pillows, window treatments, and linens, just to name a few. It’s a deal you’ll appreciate literally every single day.


OXO Good Grips Cold Brew Coffee Maker | $40 | Amazon

Cold brew coffee is basically the only kind of coffee I like, and when there wasn’t a Starbucks readily available, I’d been using the popular Takeya cold brew pitcher for over a year to make it at home. That all changed when my mother-in-law got me OXO’s alternative as a gift a couple of years ago, and it quickly became one of my favorite possessions.

Advertisement

The Takeya is fine. Good, even, especially for under $20. But the reader-recommended OXO is absolutely stellar. The video above tells you everything you need to know about how it works, but I promise you that the coffee you get after 24 hours of steeping is potent, delicious, and and can easily last you over a week, even if you don’t dilute it as much as OXO recommends.

Its MSRP is $50, and as an OXO product, that’s about what you’ll typically pay. Right now though, you can get it for $40, the first discount we’ve seen in 2019. It didn’t even go on sale during Black Friday, so you know this is rare.


Spring Lawn Care Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Today only, Amazon is marking down everything you’ll need to keep your lawn healthy. Choose from plant food, weed preventers and killers, grow lights and more from brands like Roundup, Scotts, and Root Farm.

Advertisement

Just note that this is a Gold Box, so these prices will only stick around for a day. Prices start at about $13.


Eufy BodySense C1 Smart Scale | $25 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

If you want to keep track of your new year’s weight loss resolutions, the new model of Anker’s ultra-popular Bluetooth smart scale is on sale today for just $25 right now, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on a smart scale.

In addition to functioning as a normal digital bathroom scale, the Eufy BodySense can measure metrics such as body fat percentage and body water, and sync all of that data over Bluetooth to your iOS or Android smartphone. You can see my impressions of the previous model here, but it’s the most seamless and reliable smart scale I’ve ever personally used.


Himalayan Salt Gold Box | Amazon
Image: Amazon

Himalayan salt lamps are all the rage these days. If you’ve been thinking of trying the trend, today’s a good day to do it. Amazon is discounting several different salt lamp styles and sizes, along with other spa-like salt products, in the Gold Box today. Some claim these types of lamps have a calming, anti-stress effect, which certainly isn’t a proven fact. But I think we can all agree that their orange-y glow creates a pretty ambience. Plus, they make a nice gift, and Mother’s Day is fast approaching.


Cascade Complete ActionPacs | $10 | Amazon | Clip the $2.60 coupon and use Subscribe & Save
Graphic: Shep McAllister

You need dishwasher detergent anyway, so you might as well buy it on sale. While supplies last, Amazon’s offering a $2.60 coupon on this 78-pack container of Cascade Complete ActionPacs, which was already marked down to about $12. If you stack with Subscribe & Save, you’ll be spending less than $.13 per dishwasher load.


If you still haven’t upgraded your morning routine up a life-changing wake-up light, Philips’ entry level model just got a big price drop.

The Philips HF3500 is currently marked down to $37, a match for the best price we’ve seen since 2017. While there are higher end models with color-shifting lights and multiple wake-up sounds, this model still offers a reasonably convincing facsimile of a sunrise, which helps ease you out of REM cycles before the alarm sounds. I’ve been using it for years, and absolutely love it.


Zero Grid Passport Wallet | $13 | Amazon | Clip the $1 coupon and use code C5M4ONX2

If you’re traveling abroad, you unfortunately have to throw your minimalist, front pocket wallet to the wind. But this Zero Grid RFID-protected passport wallet is just large enough to hold that oversized passport (and not a centimeter bigger), as well as cash and up to 10 credit cards. Get it for $13 today by clipping the $1 coupon on the product page, then adding promo code C5M4ONX2 at checkout.


IMUSA Granite 6-Inch Molcajete | $13 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

I pity the fool who uses a blender to make guacamole. There’s only one real way, the abuelita way, which is with a molcajete. And an abuelita is never wrong, and you never question her unless you want a laser-guided chancla to the face.

Advertisement

This particular molcajete is just $13 right now, down $5 from its usual price. The best part? After you’re done making the guac, you can serve it on the molcajete.


OXO BREW Conical Burr Coffee Grinder | $80 | Amazon
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

Do you always stop at an expensive coffee shop on your way to work? If you care about the taste of your coffee, then it is time to start making a pot at home. If you’ve never gotten into K Cups and prefer ground coffee, skip buying preground and get your own grinder.

Advertisement

The OXO BREW Conical Burr Coffee Grinder is $80 on Amazon right now. This model has durable conical burrs, which helps create uniform grounds. If you brew with your own grounds, you’re guaranteed to have a strong and flavorful cup of coffee. This grinder has one touch start, 15 settings, and can hold up to .75 pounds of coffee beans.


The Comfy Original Sweatshirt Blanket | $34 | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Sometimes, wrapping yourself in a cocoon of blankets is simply not enough. In those moments, reach for this cozy, reversible Comfy Original Blanket Sweatshirt, now on sale for $34.

Advertisement

This oversized sweatshirt-blanket is one-size-fits-all and long enough to cover a good portion of your legs. One side features super soft sherpa material, while the other features super soft material in your choice of 9 colors, but both sides have a handy front pocket in which to store your phone, or just your hands. It will definitely replace all your regular, non-hooded and/or sleeveless throw blankets and hey, maybe even your clothes, too—no judgement.


Barbie DreamCamper | $50 | Amazon
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

There is no age limit on who can enjoy all things Barbie. If you grew up playing with Barbie dolls, do you remember how glamorous her life was? She had a massive Dream home, a Malibu beach house, a hot pink sports car, and of course, who could forget the Barbie DreamCamper? You can actually buy an updated DreamCamper on Amazon and for only $50, which is $20-$30 less than usual, making it an all-time low price. You can add this camper to your old Barbie collection or you can get this for the kid in your life and start them on a wonderful Barbie journey.


Click & Grow Mini Smart Garden | $75 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

Click and Grow’s indoor herb garden has been described as “ idiot-proof indoor farming,” and you can get the mini starter kit for $75 today from Amazon today, a full $25 less than usual.

The kit comes with three maintenance-free basil cartridges to get you started, , but you can also purchase plenty of other flowers, herbs, and vegetables from Amazon to suit your taste. Functionally, this thing is pretty similar to MiracleGro’s line of Aerogardens, but aesthetically, it looks like like an Apple product in the best possible way.

20% Off Men’s and Women’s Activewear | Target
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

Summer is right around the corner, which means people are trying to get beach body ready. If you’re crushing it at the gym or just love some good athleisure gear, you’re in luck. You can get 20% off men’s and women’s activewear at Target.

Popular brands C9 Champion, Umbro, and Nicklaus are all on sale at Target right now. A standard pair of high-waisted black leggings from C9 Champion is on sale for $20. If full-length pants are too hot to wear during summer workouts, you can get a pair of mid-rise training shorts for $10. If you’re a guy who sweats like crazy during a workout, this running t-shirt will wick away all excess moisture.


Sene FlexTech Suit | Kickstarter
GIF: Kickstarter

Suits aren’t meant to be comfortable. Nobody really ever wants to wear a suit. But Sene is aiming to change that with the ambitious new FlexTech custom suit, now on Kickstarter for both men and women.

Advertisement

Made from a technical fabric that doesn’t look technical (honestly, you’d never know it unless you tugged on it), the FlexTech suit features four-way stretch, is extremely wrinkle and lint resistant, wicks sweat, and <drumroll please> is machine washable. I’ve tried one on, and while I wouldn’t go as far as Sene does in claiming that it’s as comfortable as a pair of sweats, it’s certainly more pleasant to wear than other suits I’ve owned.

Sene lays out one particular scenario, flying, where the FlexTech really shines. If you have to get straight to a meeting/wedding/funeral right after you hop off the plane, the FlexTech is going to be far more comfortable than any other suit while crammed into a tiny airline seat, and it won’t even be wrinkled once you land.

Sene is also banking on customization options, a la Indochino, to set themselves apart. After you order, you can submit all of your measurements, plus various preferences like pocket styles, cuffs, and hidden buttons, and your suit will be made to order once it’s ready to ship.

Sene currently has 11 days left on its campaign, and it’s already fully funded, but you can lock in a full suit for $415, or less if you only want the pants or the blazer.


Up to 50% Off Past Season Styles | Marmot
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

It’s finally spring, but that necessarily doesn’t mean the weather has gotten warm yet—and that’s why you should take advantage of Marmot’s sale on a flurry of items that are from “last season.” The outdoor retailer is taking up to 50% off past season styles. The discounted stock is noted by the word “save” across the color square on the product page, and — spoiler alert — you’ll probably still get some use out of any on-sale stuff, even though it’s technically so last season.


RTIC Soft Pack 20 | $89 | Amazon
RTIC Soft Pack 30 | $110 | Amazon
RTIC Soft Pack 40 | $123 | Amazon
RTIC 20 | $135 | Amazon
RTIC 45 | $195 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

We’re approaching peak picnic/camping/beach trip season, and if you don’t own a cooler that you really like, some of our readers’ favorites are on sale right now on Amazon.

Advertisement

You can save today on both soft and hard RTIC coolers, both in multiple sizes. The Soft Packs are actually our readers’ favorite coolers, and they really do keep ice frozen for days. Purely for ergonomic reasons, I prefer them to the hard coolers, but the hard ones include a drain to let out excess water, which is a nice plus.

Though Amazon doesn’t actually show them as discounted, all three soft packs are down to their best prices in at least 11 months. The 20-can model usually costs about $120-$130, the 30-can model hovers between $140 and $165, and the 40-can behemoth has sold for at least $165 for most of the last year.

The 20 and 45-can hard coolers both fluctuate in price a little more, and both were a few bucks cheaper briefly in February, but these are both still very good prices, historically.

If you spend $35 on Too Faced products, you’ll get a free travel-sized Hangover Replenishing Face Primer and Hangover 3-in-1 Replenishing Primer & Setting Spray. That’s a $31 value!

But friends, remember that these discounts will only last until the end of the day or until sold out. So, make sure to reel ‘em in before they get away.


TODAY’S BEST GAMING DEALS

Super Mario Party | $50 | Amazon
Screenshot: Nintendo

You’re forgiven if you haven’t given Mario Party much thought in the last decade, but Super Mario Party seems like a return to form for the minigame-based party series, and you can grab a copy from Amazon today for $50, a $10.

This is $5 off the lowest price we’ve ever seen, but it’s still a solid deal if you want to have some couch multiplayer fun.
