Today’s Best Tech Deals

If you’re sick and tired of losing your keys, your AirPods, your Roomba, your cat, or anything else, a handful of Tile device trackers are on sale right now, now with (clouds part, heavenly choir rains down to Earth) replaceable batteries.

First up, you can get two Tile Mates (with replaceable batteries) and two Tile Slims (with non-replaceable batteries) for $47, down from the usual $70. Or, if you just want the keychain-friendly Tile Mates, you can get four for $50, down from the usual $60.

If you want to step up to the Tile Pro, with double the volume and double the range (300' vs. 150'), you can pick up a single one for $29 (down from $35), or a set of two for $47 (down from $60). And yes, these have easily replaceable batteries as well.

“Why don’t they just make the whole desk out of mouse pad,” I’m sure you’ve asked yourself countless times. Now, you can cover nearly six square feet of your workspace with soft-touch padding for just $12 by clipping the 8% coupon and using promo code L2363MVO at checkout. It even includes a few helpful features like pen loops, a card holder, and even a kickstand for your phone.


Anker PowerPort Mini 2-Pack | $13 | Amazon | Promo code ANKERTP2

Anker’s newest PowerPort wall charger is its smallest one yet, and you can grab two of them for just $13 on Amazon today with promo code ANKERTP2.

The PowerPort Mini isn’t much bigger than the power brick that came with your iPhone, but it includes folding plugs, two ports, and 12W of power rather than just 5W. Literally everything about it is better.

That power is split between the two ports, so while it can charge an iPad at full speed if it’s the only thing plugged in, it’ll drop down to half speed if you plugged in a second device. But even so, that’s perfectly fine for overnight charging, and this thing is small enough to fit in any bag.


Refurbished Netgear Orbi Whole Home Mesh Wi-Fi System (RBK50) | $180 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

If you take your home Wi-Fi coverage seriously, Netgear’s Orbi mesh routers are some of the best you can buy, and Amazon’s running a great deal on their a refurbished unit.

This Reader Favorite is now selling for just $180.

Here’s how they work: multiple nodes, or access points, work together to blanket your home in signal. Better still, their glossy design encourages people to keep them outside of closets and drawers and in plain view to ensure unencumbered signal. (Walls hamper signal, bro.)

This model also offers all the benefits of a modern router (e.g., 802.11ac/Wi-Fi 5 and app-based management) and is currently selling for $295 new on Amazon. Just note that this is a Gold Box deal, so it goes away at the end of the day or when sold out, so act fast.

Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Any burger lover worth their salt knows that grinding your own meat is absolutely essential if you want the best possible results, and if you already own a KitchenAid, you can add a fancy, metal grinder for just $53 today, $20 less than usual.

Want to control exactly how much fat is in your burger? Want to create beer and chorizo blends? Want to actually see how the sausage is made... by making your own sausage (with an extra adapter)? This is a no-brainer kitchen purchase.

If you owed money on your taxes this year, I’m deeply sorry. I’ve been there. But if you found yourself to be flush with cash after filing, why not reinvest that refund into your home? That’s what Wayfair wants you to do, anyway, and they’re giving you and extra push with their Tax Refund Event, going on now. Take up to 70% off everything from area rugs, major appliances, and closet systems, to outdoor furniture, mattresses, and entertainment centers. Finally, the IRS is good for something.


Growing up, I always thought people who drank carbonated mineral water, like Perrier, were so fancy. I still think that and right now, you can pick up a 24 pack of Perrier from Amazon for under $14 today. There’s no flavoring here, just bubbles.

This current price is the lowest we’ve ever seen, so drink up with, preferably, your pinky up.


Sweet Home Collection Sheets Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

For today only, you can save up to 35% off Sweet Home Collection sheet sets in a number of colors thanks to Amazon’s Gold Box.

While I haven’t had much experience with microfiber sheets (I don’t think I’ll stray from high-thread count cotton), these should be at least good enough for your guest bedroom.

I think it’s worth a gamble, especially when prices start at just $15 for a twin set. But, of course, since this is a Gold Box, prices only stick around until the end of the day or until sold out. And be sure to check out the full deal page to see all of your options.


Blunt Classic Umbrella | $63 | Amazon | Promo code PB2QZTGH
Blunt Metro Travel Umbrella | $47 | Amazon | Promo code PB2QZTGH
Blunt Lite UV Umbrella | $79 | Amazon | Promo code PB2QZTGH

Next time there’s a storm, you could spend $5 on a drugstore umbrella that will last approximately 40 seconds before disintegrating into flying shards of metal, or you could invest in a Blunt umbrella for 20% off with promo code JAN312019.

Blunt umbrellas feature rounded safety tips to avoid poking anyone in the eye, include a special pocket for a Tile device tracker, and most importantly, can withstand winds of up to 72 mph (in the case of the standard model, others are lower). For reference, tropical storms become hurricanes at 74 mph, so if your Blunt ever succumbs to the wind, you probably have bigger things to worry about. You can see it in action in the video above, which never fails to impress me.

This deal is valid on the full-sized Blunt Classic, the portable Blunt Metro and the new Blunt Lite UV. The code should work for any color as long as it’s sold by BLUNT USA - it won’t work on listings sold by Amazon directly, or other third party sellers.


2x4basics Shed Kit with Barn Roof | $49 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

A shed is a magical place where you can collect tools, lawn care equipment, golf clubs, and other detritus that you have no room for in your home, without, like, just piling it up in your yard for all the neighbors to see. Nobody’s ever going to get on you to clean your shed, because its whole point is storing crap so that your home and garage can be clean themselves.

So, say you want a shed (you do). This $49 kit from Amazon includes all of the metal brackets you’ll need, plus a materials list and building instructions. You’ll need to provide the 2x4 lumber from elsewhere, but the kit is designed in such a way that you’ll only have to make 90 degree cuts, so it should be about as simple as a construction project can be.


Kyoku Daimyo 8" Damascus Steel Chef’s Knife | $69 | Amazon | Promo code KKECRSUK

You might not have heard of Kyoku, but we found their Daimyo damascus steel chef’s knife to be utterly impressive, and spellbindingly beautiful to look at too. Now, they’re offering our readers and exclusive deal: use promo code KKECRSUK at checkout to slice $31 off the price, bringing it down to $69. Nice.


Phillips’ insanely popular Wake-Up Light is here to change your life. This is the best model in the lineup, and includes an FM radio and natural sounds to wake up to. Grab it right now on Amazon for $95, the best price they’ve listed in over a year.

Unlike an unsympathetic traditional alarm clock, the Philips Wake-Up Light eases you awake with a gradually-brightening light that simulates a natural sunrise, which is how humans are designed to wake up anyway. After the light gets you out of your REM cycle and ready to wake up, an audible alarm will finish the job at the time of your choosing. Plus, it also doubles as a very warm and pleasant reading light as you’re getting ready to go to sleep.


Zero Grid Dopp Kit | $10 | Amazon | Clip the $1 coupon and use promo code YTOBWWJ9

Luggage gets all the attention, but if you ask me, the most important piece of travel gear you can own is a good toiletry kit. This one from Zero Grid is made from water-resistant ripstop nylon (which is just as important for keeping liquids in as it is keeping them out), and carries a 4.4 star review average. Get it for an all-time low $10 today with promo code YTOBWWJ9.

24-Pack 12 oz. Red Bull | $34 | Amazon | Use Subscribe & Save
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Energy drinks will probably kill you, but if you can’t go without the pick-me-up, Red Bull is probably the least disgusting option out there. And anyone who’s ever bought an emergency can at a gas station knows that any deal under $1 per can is pretty eye opening. Just be sure to use Subscribe & Save to get the best price; you can always cancel after your first box ships.

If you prefer the larger 12 ounce cans, that 24-pack is an equally good deal.

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, Amazon’s marked down a powerful Sun Joe washer down to $119, a new all-time low.

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.


70-Count Cascade Platinum Plus Dishwasher Tabs | $14 | Amazon | Clip the $5 copuon

You need dishwasher tabs anyway, so you might as well get them on sale. Clip the $5 coupon and use Subscribe & Save to get 70 Cascade Platinum Plus+ tabs delivered from Amazon for just $14. Just remember to cancel the subscription if you don’t want to keep receiving them.


What do you get the man who has everything and a man-cave? Obviously a retro popcorn maker. This Great Northern Popcorn maker is currently at its lowest price ever on Amazon. If you got the room, and hosting friends and family for a movie night, this is an awesome accent piece.

There are nine full-size stylers marked down, plus the mini-versions of a few, too. The T.B.D. Multi-Tasking Styler, an all-purpose cream, is perhaps the most versatile of the bunch, though I do love a good texturizing spray, and this Instant Texture Mist fits the bill. There’s also a Molding Clay, Forming Paste, Control Hairspray for those who need a firmer hold. But no matter what high-tech styler you choose, you can’t go wrong, because they’re all $13 or less.

Note: I know you’ve probably never heard of this site, but I bought a copy of RDR2 from them awhile back, and it shipped promptly and arrived faster than expected.

Looking for a pair of headphones? The ones you’re looking at are probably discounted in Best Buy’s eBay storefront right now.

If you haven’t picked up the nostalgia bomb that is Pokémon: Let’s Go Eevee/Pikachu, you can grab either one (hint: get the Eevee version) for $50 today on Amazon, or $10 less than usual.

These games are basically modern, 3D remakes of the original Red and Blue games that you played on your Gameboy, and while they’re a bit easy by modern Pokémon standards, the series has never looked so good.
