Best Tech Deals 

AmazonBasics Standby UPS 800VA 450W Surge Protector | $49 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If your home’s electricity is prone to outages or flickering, a UPS can keep essential gear up and running for a short time, while protecting it from any power surges.

That means it can save important work on your desktop computer, prevent your PS4 from shutting down right before you beat that boss, or just keep your modem and router running continuously without that agonizing three minute wait for everything to reboot.

These used to be the realm of specialized companies like APC, but now, AmazonBasics has its own versions, and the most powerful 800VA model is actually cheaper today than the 600VA version.


Aukey Surge Protector/Night Light | $14 | Amazon | Promo code WKJCRAED

This Aukey surge protector orients its four AC outlets and two USB ports to the side, which is great for hiding behind furniture. But it’s also a night light and phone stand, which is sort of contradictory to the furniture thing, but I guess you could use it either way. Get it for $14 with promo code WKJCRAED.


Anker PowerPort Atom III+ | $39 | Amazon | Promo code ANKERAP2

The year of USB-C GaN chargers continues unabated, and one of the latest chargers to hit the market is Anker’s PowerPort+ Atom III.

Onboard, you get a 45W USB-C Power Delivery port, plus a PowerIQ 2.0 USB port, which is capable of outputting 15W itself, a match for Quick Charge 2.0 speeds for compatible devices. If you want to charge your phone and your laptop at the same time, this is the one and only charger you need, and you can save 10% at launch with promo code ANKERAP2.


Sony WH1000XM3 Noise Canceling Headphones | $279 | Drop (Formerly Massdrop)

Drop (formerly Massdrop) is offering one of the best deals on the best noise canceling headphones right now, the Sony WH1000XM3 Bluetooth Wireless Noise Canceling Headphones.

While supplies last, you can snag them and mute the entire world around you for $279, down from the usual $349. And, sure, $279 is still a big investment, but if you spend a lot of time in noisy planes and trains, or if you work in an open office and just need to be able to find a quiet space, you won’t find a better set of headphones.


BenQ 27" Monitor | $250 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

This 27" BenQ gaming monitor checks a ton of boxes when it comes to what you want from a gaming monitor. First, it has a super fast 1ms response time, a 2K resolution and right now it’s about $30 off its regular price.

While its 60hz refresh rate is kind of a bummer, it’s still a solid monitor for non-competitive gamers. Just stay away if you’re into first-person shooters.


Anker’s Nebula Capsule raised the bar for portable projectors, and now, they’ve taken the guts of that soda can, and put it into a much less expensive home projector.

On paper, the Nebula Prizm’s picture quality stats are a dead ringer for the Capsule’s. It outputs an 800 x 480 picture at 100 lumens, features automatic keystone correction, and has a built-in 5W speaker. However, it lacks an Android OS (you’ll have to use a streaming dongle, or something similar), and it has to be plugged in at all times, since it doesn’t have a battery.

Novelty aside, I could see it being perfect for a kid’s room, or maybe a bedroom or garage where you occasionally want to watch video, but don’t want to keep a TV. And at $76 (down from the usual $130-100) it’s practically an impulse purchase.


Showpin Magnetic Mat | $8 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

Keeping track of screws when you’re building IKEA furniture is hard enough. When you’re repairing an iPhone or a PC though, and the screws are roughly the size of a tick that you wouldn’t notice attached to your arm for several days, it’s all but impossible.

But this magical magnetic mat makes it not only possible, but easy. The screws stick to the mat wherever you drop them, meaning you can keep them in the proper location relative to whatever it is you’re fixing. You can even write on the mat with the included dry erase marker to take notes about how things fit back together. The mat typically sells for $9-$12, and today’s $8 deal is the best Amazon’s ever had.


Anker Nebula Mars II Portable Projector | $330 | Amazon
Nebula Capsule | $225 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Anker, as you probably know by now, makes a lot of ton of cool stuff. And today only, you can save big on two of their best portable projectors.

Advertisement

The first is the Nebula Capsule, a surprisingly good portable projector/speaker shrunk down to the size of a soda can. We think it’s really cool to use for backyard movie nights or as a portable screen for your Nintendo Switch.

Of course, to achieve its diminutive size, the Capsule makes a few compromises, in terms of brightness and picture quality.

If that’s a dealbreaker, the larger $330 Mars II puts out a 720p picture of up to 150", is 3x brighter than the Capsule, and can run for four hours on a charge, meaning you could watch a double feature outdoors without having to plug it in.

If you’re on the market for a couple of affordable projectors, this is the best time to buy. Be warned, these discounts will only last until the end of the day, or until sold out.

TODAY’S BEST HOME DEALS

Sun Joe Go Anywhere Electric Pressure Washer | $119 | Walmart and Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

You might not think you need a pressure washer, but after spending 10 minutes on r/pressurewashingporn, you’ll have your credit card out. For a limited time, Walmart and Amazon’s marked down a powerful Sun Joe washer down to $119, a new all-time low.

Advertisement

At 2030 PSI, this is more than powerful enough for most household jobs, and its 360 degree caster wheels make it easy to maneuver around your patio while you blast away all of your past regrets and painful memories all of that dirt and grime around your home.


$200 Off The Pod Active Cooling and Heating Mattress | Eight Sleep | Plus free setup
Graphic: Eight Sleep

Between the privacy violations, the techno-fascism, and the ever-increasing indignities of gig-based capitalism, the future kind of sucks! But hey, at least we got a liquid cooled mattress out of it. Finally.

Here’s how it works:

The Pod features a series of fluid-filled channels running through the foam mattress, and a single hub that can cool the liquid to as low as 55 degrees, or heat it up to 115, and circulate different temperatures to both sides of the bed independently. If you like a cool mattress, and your partner prefers things warm and cozy, this seems like a complete solution where electric blankets only solve one person’s problem.

Of course, this being 2019, it also works with Alexa (“Alexa, cool down my bed”), tracks how much you’re tossing and turning, and can even gently wake you up in the morning by cooling down the mattress. You can skip all the smart features and just enjoy the Pod for its unique climate control options, but they’re there if you want them.

The Pod only came out last month, but now you can save $200 for Memorial Day, plus free in-home setup (a $200 value). It’s still an expensive mattress, let’s be clear (even on sale we’re talking over $1,900 for a queen), but there’s really nothing else quite like it on the market.

It’s not nearly as slick, but you can also achieve a similar cooling and heating effect with your existing mattress with ChiliPad, as we’ve covered here.


DEWALT 5-Piece 20V Cordless Combo Kit | $349 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you have any DIY projects on the horizon, and don’t want to pay to rent a bunch of used tools, this discounted DEWALT kit has the gear you need for a ton of different jobs.

Advertisement

$349 gets you a 20V drill, an impact driver, a circular saw, a grinder, and a work light, plus a bag to hold everything, and a couple of swappable batteries that will work on any of the tools. That’s a decent chunk of change, but it’s way below the kit’s usual $529 price tag.

Have any experience with any of these tools? Let us know in the comments!


Rachio Smart Irrigation Controller | $104 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

Rachio brought home sprinkler systems into the smartphone age, and their 8-zone system is on sale for the best price ever today.

These irrigation controllers can automatically adjust watering schedules based on the weather, and if you want to keep tabs on it, its iOS and Android app will show you how much water you’re using (and saving), and allow you to make any adjustments necessary, no matter where you are in the world. They even work with Alexa, so you can water your lawn with nothing but your voice. All of these smarts mean that the IRO can save you over 50% on your outdoor water use, so it should pay for itself over time. It’s also EPA WaterSense Certified, meaning your local water company might offer you a rebate for purchasing it.


Petcube Bites Wi-Fi Pet Camera & Treat Dispenser | $130 | Chewy | Discount applied at checkout
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

On a scale of 1 to 10, how guilty do you feel leaving your pet home alone? If you’re near the top of the range, you might want to invest in a pet camera. You can keep an eye on your furry friend and make sure they’re not getting into too much trouble while you’re gone. What your pet will love even more is a camera with a treat dispenser. Time to indulge their treat addiction!

Advertisement

You can get a Petcube Bites WiFi Pet Camera & Treat Dispenser for $130, while it is a $120 off for a limited time. You can get the camera in three colors: rose gold, black, and silver. The discount will be applied at checkout. If the Pet Parent Guilt sets in hard, you can access the camera from your smartphone and toss your pet some treats. The 1080p HD camera comes with night vision and 3x zoom so you can keep a very close eye on exactly what your pet does when you leave.


Intex Swim Center Family Inflatable Pool | $18 | Amazon
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

Sure, inground pools are cool and all. But inflatable pools are cheaper, easier to maintain, and you’re not going to worry about anyone falling in the deep end. While inflatable pools are more budget-friendly than above ground and inground pools, the good ones aren’t always exactly cheap.

Right now, you can get a 120" Intex Swim Center Family Inflatable Pool for about $11 off its regular price on Amazon. Your little ones (and dog) will have fun all summer long in this pool. If you just want to sit in cold water, the extra wide side walls give added comfort for a lazy pool day. Be warned, the inflatable pool does not come with a pump included.


5-Pound Weighted Blanket | $40 | Amazon | Promo code YHBBED9I
20-Pound Weighted Blanket | $49 | Amazon | Promo code 8BIAT893
25-Pound Weighted Blanket | $70 | Amazon | Promo code UPUT8QVN
Photo: Amazon

We see deals on 10-15 pound weighted blankets with some regularity, but discounts on lighter blankets for kids, and ultra-heavy blankets for larger adults or for people who just want to feel like their ribs are being crushed by a blanket (hi) are harder to come by.

Today though, you can get a 5-pound blanket that’s perfect for a ~50 pound child for $40 with promo code YHBBED9I, or on the other end of the spectrum, a 20 pounder for $49 (code 8BIAT893) and a 25 pounder for $70 (code UPUT8QVN).

If you aren’t familiar, weighted blankets don’t just keep you warm. They can actually help ease anxiety after a tough day. Think about how nice it feels when the dentist puts that heavy apron on your chest. Now imagine it as a blanket, and at your home instead of the dentist. Doesn’t that sound nice?


Dinnerware and Flatware Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

You probably haven’t re-thought your dinnerware and flatware since you first bought it, but if there were every a time to upgrade, it’s today. Amazon is marking down several attractive sets of plates, bowls, serving pieces, and silverware in the Gold Box. All set on that stuff? Consider spicing up your kitchen with a few fun novelty items. Because, really, who doesn’t need a Mantea tea infuser?


25% Off Select Travel Items | Vera Bradley
Image: Vera Bradley

’Tis the season for weekends away, so prep for your next trip with sale on Vera Bradley, everyone’s favorite paisley purveyor. Right now, a selection of cute duffles, backpacks, weekenders, and travel accessories is 25% off. So bag in a new bag in the brand’s signature print, or go for something more solid; either way, you’ll be getting a great deal.


Eagle Creek Pack It Cube Set | $21 | Amazon

I know packing cubes can seem redundant—they’re like luggage for your luggage—but trust me when I say that they make packing, unpacking, and repacking during a trip so much more pleasant, and can also help you squeeze more clothes into your carry-on.

Eagle Creek makes some of the best cubes out there, and this three-piece set is down to $21 on Amazon today, within a few bucks of the best price ever.


When you think of smart lighting, you probably think of special lamps and bulbs. But Belkin’s WeMo dimmer switch adds a brain to pretty much any light fixture in your home, including ceiling lights.

Advertisement

Priced today at an all-time low $48, the switch replaces a regular dimmer light switch installed in your home, and uses Wi-Fi to control and dim your lights from your phone, or via your favorite voice assistant. You can even schedule it to automatically turn off at night, or use it to simulate people being home when you’re away to ward off ne’er-do-wells. Best of all, there’s no hub required; it talks directly to your router.

REI Anniversary Sale | REI

Indochino Premium Suits | $349 | Indochino | Kinja Deals Exclusive
Photo: Indochino

Custom tailored suits aren’t just for Very Important Business People with Super Platinum Medallion status and briefcases that cost more than your rent. At Indochino’s prices, custom suiting is attainable for all, and that’s especially true with our exclusive sale. 

You can grab any of the premium suits from this page for just $349 depending on the style, with promo code KINJA19. These premium suits typically cost $389-$399, but you know what the best part is? All of your customizations, alterations, and shipping are included in the price. Options range from simple, versatile navy and gray options to brighter blues and even a burgundy suit, so you can definitely find something that will fill a niche in your closet.

If you aren’t familiar with Indochino, this is nothing like buying a suit off the rack. You get to choose every little facet of the suit yourself, and everything is cut to measure to fit you perfectly. But if you don’t have time to take your measurements right this minute, you can check out now and submit your measurements later, which makes it very easy to gift. There are plenty of fun and colorful options available, as well as lots of business-minded suits that still look great.

Having a suit that fits perfectly is great, as is picking from dozens of styles, but the little details Indochino lets you customize, from your jacket lapels to pocket flaps to accent stiching around your buttons, are where things get really fun. Just look at some of the options:

How It Works

If you live near a showroom...

You can purchase your suit online with our discount, then take your receipt into an Indochino showroom. They’ll do your measurements, walk you through your customization options, and have your suit delivered to the showroom. Return once it arrives for any final alterations if they’re needed.

Or, measure and customize from home...

Follow the directions on Indochino’s site to submit your measurements and customize your suit. Once the suit arrives, if anything doesn’t fit quite right, you can bring it into an Indochino showroom for adjustments. If you don’t have a showroom nearby, Indochino will provide directions for your local tailor, along with a $75 credit to cover their work. If for whatever reason you can’t get the suit to fit quite right, Indochino will remake your suit. Shipping and return shipping are free.

Best Gaming Deals

Wolfenstein: Youngblood seems like it’s going to take Wolfenstein to new levels of absurdity, and Amazon currently has digital preorders of the PC Deluxe Edition marked down to $30, the same price as the standard edition. (It’s mislabeled at the top of the product page as the standard edition, but every other part of the page refers to it as the deluxe edition).

In addition to some skins and weapons, the main selling point of the deluxe edition is that it lets you play Co-Op mode online with a friend, even if they don’t own the game themselves. So find a buddy, and get ready to kick some Nazi ass.
