A GameStop flash sale, a massively discounted Xbox One X w/ Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order, three months of Game Pass Ultimate, up to 70% off bed and bath items at Wayfair, and a pair of Wicked Audio wireless headphones headline Friday’s best deals.
Save $90 off of the new price with this renewed (refurbished) Vizio 5.1 surround sound system, which Amazon guarantees will look and act like new.
If your TV’s built-in speakers just aren’t cutting it, this multi-speaker system ought to offer a significant upgrade. You’ll get a soundbar, a subwoofer, and a pair of wired satellite speakers to deliver an immersive soundscape for your media.
When you think about it, it’s the perfect time to buy a souped-up gaming rig that doubles as a supercharged work laptop, and that’s exactly what you can expect from the Lenovo Legion Y545, now $1,000 at Adorama, a powerful but subtle take on the gaming notebook concept as indicated by its plain black-on-black chassis and minimalist design cues.
On the inside you’ll find an Intel Core i7-9750H processor, 16GB of RAM, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphic, and most notably, 512GB of PCIe SSD storage combined with a full 1TB hard drive, and a 144Hz FHD (1920 x 1080) display. Granted, the config referenced here is refurbished, but this price would net you only a 128GB SSD (no hard drive) new at retail. I tried building this same model on Lenovo’s site and the pre-tax checkout price was $1,215.
Times are tough right now, and that means that buying a new computer might be difficult, even if you really need one. Luckily, you can get a pretty great computer without spending an obnoxious amount of money. Apple’s Mac Mini, which packs a lot of power into a small, more affordable package, is down to $690 today at B&H Photo.
For your money, you’ll get a 3.6 GHz Intel Core i3 quad-core processor, 8 GB of RAM, and a 128 GB SSD. That isn’t much storage, but you can always add a portable SSD later for some more storage. It’s powerful enough for most casual tasks, so you can get work done without too much stress, and it’ll look great sitting on your desk.
Having to work from home can be frustrating for any number of reasons. Among them can be the uncontrollable noise from other family members who are just trying to get through the day. The best thing to do is to find a way to tune out the noise without having to cause too much trouble. Noise cancelling headphones, like Bose’s QuietComfort 35‘s, which are $50 off at B&H Photo today, can be a great help in keeping you focused and helping the outside world fade into the background.
Sure, they might not actually stop the little ones from banging on pots and pans, but they’ll make sure you can hear what’s going on in that definitely important Zoom meeting while it’s happening.
If you’re tryna git wicked smaht listening to NPaaaaaahhh, Wicked Aaudio’s Hum 900 wireless headphones are just $29 ovah at SideDeal. This is a scorcha of a deal, so grab ‘em while they’re hauut and don’t miss aaut.
If you’re in the market for a decent portable charger that’ll keep all your gadgets juiced up while you’re on the go, look no further than the Anker Powercore 10000. It’s only $15 with the promo code “KINJA1263.” It’ll help you out if you’re on a hike, out for a long bike ride, or other activities where you find yourself lacking a proper outlet. I would grab this deal before it’s gone.
Ooooweee, I can’t wait to hear what Ignacia recommends for her TGIF Playlist this week, and with 20% off Anker’s Soundcore speakers, you can vibe with me. You can get the Soundcore Motion+ for $80 with promo code MOTIONPLUS, or use code ANKERSDC2 for a $32 Soundcore 2.
The Soundcore Motion+ uses Bluetooth AptX and 30W drivers to deliver hi-res audio playback for up to 12 hours. Buy two, and you can pair them wirelessly for stereo sound. The Soundcore 2 can’t boast the same audio fidelity, but you’ll still get great sound, and you’ll enjoy double the battery life compared to the Motion+. Both are water-resistant, too, so you can sing the Mad About You theme song in the shower to your heart’s content.
Is your tech family neatly divided between Apple and, well, everything else?AUKEY’s Slimline power bank—now $28 with promo code 9LI4JA8H—packs 20,000mAh of extra power for iPhones, iPads, Android smartphones, Nintendo Switches, true wireless headphones, and anything else that needs USB charging. That’s because there are three USB-A ports, a USB-C port, and a Lightning connector all packed onto the same slim slab.
NordVPN is one of the most widely-acclaimed VPN services out there and has been downloaded en masse by our readers during past deals. The service lets you connect up to six simultaneous devices and access 5,871 servers worldwide, with no logs kept of your actions.
Right now, the best deal is to spring for three years of service and save 70% off of the regular monthly price. You’ll have to spend $126 to do so, but at least then you won’t have to think about it again until 2023!
Sometime after Apple cursed us with this single-port fate with the debut of its 12-inch MacBook in 2015, every laptop maker decided to take away the USB ports you know and love in favor of a reversible—and often faster—USB-C port you can only plug one accessory into at a time. These days, our laptops tend to have at least two USB-C ports, but if that’s not enough (it’s not), SideDeal is offering up HP’s official 4-port USB-C 3.0 hub for 43% off.
While it’s not exactly a multimedia hub since there’s no VGA- or HDMI-out, it will free up a few ports for when you ARE ready to snap up a USB-C to HDMI (or VGA) adapter. Plus, it’s a steep enough discount that you can pick two of ‘em up and expand your USB Type-A inventory to eight. Never fear running out of ports again for the low, low asking price of just $17.
For all the music nerds, the Anker Soundcore Bluetooth speaker is down to $31. If you like to blast your music while you’re hiking or even sunbathing in the backyard, this device is perfect for you. It has about 66 feet of range between you and your phone, so all the barbecues you have to pass the time will be filled with dope music. I would hop on this deal before it’s gone! Just make sure to type in ANKERSDC2 at checkout.
If you’ve quickly amassed a pile of devices that need USB power, carrying around a bunch of different charger pucks is the last thing you want. Give them all away and buy Anker’s 100W USB-C hub instead, which is only $69 with exclusive promo code KINJA100C.
This one features two USB-C power delivery ports and two standard USB-A PowerIQ ports, the former available to charge newer smartphones, tablets, and laptops, while the latter two will cover pretty much anything else. The beauty is that you can do it all simultaneously.
If you need a new TV, you owe it to yourself to consider HiSense’s new Quantum Dot sets. The brand name is undoubtedly familiar to some, but Hisense has become one of the fastest growing tech manufacturers of the past few years, and its Quantum Dot TVs represent incredible value, especially with today’s discount. You can get a 75" H8G Quantum-Series TV $200 off, bringing your final total down to $1,300.
This 4K Android TV supports HDR and Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos, and has full array local dimming, and thanks to its quantum dots, you’ll get a much more vivid picture than previous LED/LCD technologies could manage.
This discount won’t last too long, so take advantage ASAP.
If you haven’t already shored your computer up with antivirus, today is the day to do it. Today, you can get a year of AVG Ultimate 33% off, which translates to a $40 discount. That means it’s just $80 to protect an unlimited mount of PC and mobile devices in your care.
And more than just antivirus, AVG Ultimate also has a tune up and VPN combo, the former keeping your PC running smoothly with periodic house cleaning, while the VPN hides your activity from packet snoopers, and potentially more...
Between cramped nightstands and scarce electrical outlets, it can be hard to make sure all your gadgets get their daily boost. Wireless charging alone won’t solve that problem, but a wireless charging pad that supports two devices can help you get things a little more in order. Right now, you can get Anker’s Powerwave 10 wireless charging pad for just $28 on Amazon using the promo code DMAK2571.
The Powerwave 10 supports charging up to two devices simultaneously, and also supports fast charging. It also comes with a 5 ft charging cable, giving you everything you need to plop your phones down and forget about it til’ it’s topped off.
If you’re an iPhone user, AirPods are your first consideration for true wireless earbuds. The AirPods Pro stepped the game up with rubber tips, noise cancellation, and better overall audio quality, and you can save $15 on a pair of your own at Verizon Wireless. It’s not a massive discount, but considering how rarely the newest Apple products dip in price, it’s still worth a look.

Sure, working from a trackpad is mostly fine, and you might not have too many complaints. Still, when you’re working eight hours a day, it can be nice to have a mouse handy. Apple’s Magic Mouse isn’t the most ergonomic one you can get, so those with RSI troubles might want to grab something more suited to those needs, but it does look great on your desk. Plus, its multitouch capabilities make it a nice way to navigate the web. Right now, it’s available in Space Grey for $10 off at B&H Photo, so grab it while you can.

I never have a drill when I need one. Which isn’t very often, but the task of finding someone that actually HAS a drill and will let me borrow it is enough of a struggle in itself to make me want to get one. Well, Bosch is currently having a sale on their drill and impact driver combo kit. I’m not exactly sure what an impact driver is, but I’ve probably needed it at some point, too.
Anyway, these small handheld tools usually retail for $149, but they’re on sale for $119. But, a current Bosch promotion takes an additional $20 off at checkout, bringing the total for this set down to $99. That’s a pretty great deal for two power tools!

Plus, you can chat with it and it’ll play some tunes while you get your chef on.
Put on your swimsuit and gear up that pool bod—pretty soon, it’s gonna be June. And, for a limited time, MorningSave is giving you four dancing flame tiki torches to decorate the backyard for $39. These vibrant displays will remind your neighbors that despite *gestures to everything* you’re still in permanent vacation mode after hours. And there’s nothing better than pretending you’re on vacation, even at a time when taking one doesn’t make sense.
Ordinarily, these four as-seen-on-TV tiki torches would set you back a whole $80. But today, the solar-powered LED flames are discounted 50%. These outdoor torches are waterproof and “weatherproof,” whatever that means, and are capable of running for 8 consecutive hours without fail. Each stands 9.5 inches tall and weighs 11.5 pounds, so you shouldn’t have trouble ejecting them from your lawn and repositioning ‘em elsewhere.
So there’s a pandemic going on, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t clean your car.

This week the Bundesliga announced they will resume play, without fans in the stands of course. Perhaps England is following suit with asking players to return to the country. In the U.S. the MLS was given the green light to head back to training. In celebration of at least, soccer returning Ebbets released a new line of American soccer tees. Get 20% off these with code MAY20.
Ebbetts specializes in throwback gear across baseball, football, soccer, and hockey focusing on America’s history through these sports. There are some absolutely gorgeous throwback recreations. I would take any from the vintage hockey sweater collection.

I find beauty subscription boxes are hit or miss with what you pay and what you get. But with GlossyBox you get 5 to 6 products whose value usually equates to $100. This month they are offering two specially curated boxes for just $16 with code WILD16.
There is also an option for $10 off a 3-month subscription with code WILD10. You already save a bit when you choose to pay more upfront but here your total savings are 24%. It’s a great gift option but I totally understand wanting to see what a box is like before you commit. And $16 is a lot more palatable upfront.
I can tell you there is an eyeshadow palette from Steve Laurant and the Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm in May’s box. It’s being called the “Wild Box” and is coming in tiger or zebra print packaging.
This deal runs until May 17.
I don’t know who needs to hear this but, you should moisturize and moisturize often. I really don’t want to hear arguments otherwise—using lotion every day should be a part of your overall grooming routine, and no I won’t elaborate. Luckily, Ulta agrees with me and is offering a cool BOGO sale for Hempz lotion. If you buy one, you get the other 50% off. Grab a bottle or two before they’re gone.

A lot of us have had to make do with makeshift or low-quality face masks amid the rise of COVID-19, but if you’re looking for something that looks quite a bit more durable and comfortable, Wolford has an appealing option.
The Wolford Care Mask, a double-layered polyester mask that is contoured to snugly fit to your face, is now back in stock after being featured in Vogue. A water-repellant finish should help the Wolford Care Mask sustain the elements, while the “highly elastic, extra-thin bands” ensure that it’s not constantly slipping off.
It’s a pricier option at $26, but given how long wearing masks may be the new normal in various walks of life, it might be worth investing in something premium and durable.
I’m not the only one who desperately needs a massage at a time when every spa and massage therapy office is closed, right? Fortunately, for us, HoMedics has a solution.

Measuring 24 x 20 x 2 inches, it’s sizable enough to double as a pillow when the remote is powered off. Speaking of which, the included wired remote tethered to the massager unit features one-touch controls designed to run each massage session for 15 minutes at a time. The best part? You don’t have to pay to extend it to 30 minutes or 45 or an hour. Just press the button again and you’re good to go. Maybe this whole massage-from-home thing isn’t so bad after all.

If you’re interested in making a garden, for example, but lack the appropriate yard space, then the Field Guide to Urban Gardening will be a great purchase. Or, you can learn to make some watercolor art with Creative Watercolor, which is aimed to get beginners the skills they need to have fun.
There’s also this book on cat care, which I bought on the name alone but well... that’s less a hobby and more that it’s important to take care of your animals. Anyway, grab a book and get to learning a new hobby, and May will fly by before you know it!
Also known as “Lil’ baby PlayStation,” the PlayStation Classic is basically Sony’s take on the tiny NES and Super NES that Nintendo released a couple years back, packing 20 original PSone games into a pint-sized, plug-and-play console.
It’s pretty no-frills in execution, but legendary games such as Final Fantasy VII, Metal Gear Solid, and Tekken 3 onboard, you can get a lot of fun out of it—especially now that it’s more than $40 off the list price.
This is one of the best deals you’ll find on an Xbox One X anywhere. GameStop has the Xbox One X bundle that includes Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order for $300.

If you haven’t already stepped up to 4K, what are you waiting for?
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is one of the hottest deals going in gaming. Even without meaty discounts like three months for $21 at CDKeys (normally $45), you’ll enjoy all the benefits of Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass for one low price. That means you’ll get online play, free games, exclusive discounts, in-game perks, and more, and that goes whether you’re on Xbox One, PC, or the soon-to-arrive Xbox Series X.

At this point the lore of the Assassin’s Creed franchise is so convoluted that it necessitated a reboot in the form of Assassin’s Creed Origins in 2017. While I didn’t play more than an hour or two of that one, I did play the latest Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, and let me tell you, the experience is worth paying full price. Still, if you’re an Xbox One owner and you haven’t already, pick up the Deluxe Edition for $20 and save yourself more than a few bucks later on as we approach the unspecified release date of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
The RPG-ified post-Syndicate Assassin’s Creed series breathes new life into what was becoming an increasingly stale, rinse/repeat formula. Now I love experimenting with different weapon types—beyond the Hidden Blade—and discovering what works for me vs. what doesn’t in the combat. My only regret is that I didn’t play as Kassandra, who I’m told is the canonical protagonist of the two playable characters. That said, I made plenty of queer love as Alexios, thanks to the inclusion of gender-neutral romance options.
Did you know that Amazon Warehouse has a bunch of deals on Pokémon cards? True story! Mostly, they’re just sets with damaged packaging, which shouldn’t matter so long as the cards are still legit.
In this case, you’ll get a Trainer Box of the recent Sword & Shield expansion of the Pokémon: Trading Card Game, which gets you eight booster packs and a bunch of other goodies. It’s a few bucks off of the new price for a “Like New” box, which is basically like getting a free pack of cards. Hard to argue with that.
It still boggles my mind that people revere the monstrosity that is the original Xbox controller. I mean, the Controller S was alright—they actually put the white and black buttons where they belong, and it wasn’t a literal brick. But if you’re an Xbox purist who swear by six face buttons, grab Hyperkin’s Duke for $66, an officially licensed wired Xbox One controller in see-through green that’ll set off all your nostalgia dopamine.
It even has the white and black buttons on the front, but don’t fret if you can’t gel with that: We still have bumpers to go along with the triggers.
We were supposed to be playing Cyberpunk 2077 right around this time, but like the good studio it is, CD Projekt Red delayed the game until September 17 to polish up. There are far too many games to play to still be upset about that, but if you’ve been jonesing for Cyberpunk 2077, perhaps this pre-order deal will make you feel a bit better. CDKeys is offloading PC pre-orders for $45 a pop, which is the lowest we’ve seen so far.
Nearing the end of your PlayStation Plus subscription? It would normally cost you $60, but thanks to CDKeys, you can add a whole year to your account for just $33. PlayStation Plus is required for online play and cloud saves, but there are other premium benefits like free games, exclusive discounts, and Share Play. It doesn’t look like these shut-ins will go away quickly and quietly, so if you’re planning on filling your newfound time with a spot of gaming, PS+ is an absolute necessity.

If you haven’t already bought Sid Meier’s Civilization VI, what are you doing with your life? No, seriously, stop reading and go buy it at Amazon, especially considering it’s only $17 there. This is for the physical disc, mind you, but the game can be authorized via Steam, where it’s currently still going for the full $60.
Civilization VI puts you in control of a fledgling group of settlers that you must grow into a dominant empire. Whether that’s through peaceful (yet often deceptive) diplomacy or endless war, there are many styles of play available to you, and as nice as the base game is, there’s a lot more fun and depth to be had in the expansions.
If you’re looking for something new to play, check out Dead Cells. It was named best action game of the year for its tight, fast-paced action gameplay with souls-like elements. Just $21 at Amazon for PS4 players, Dead Cells is unforgiving and brutal, but also extremely rewarding when you finally beat that mob of enemies that seemingly employ force fields for shields and can kill you just by nicking you on the nose with a toothpick.

Nothing kills your vibe like realizing your SD card’s storage is full, and you’re only halfway through your photoshoot. Having a card with large storage helps, but having a couple spare cards handy will ensure you never run out of room. SanDisk’s 128 GB SD card is down to just $33 right now at B&H Photo, so you can grab a couple before venturing on your next Instagram-worthy hike.
Maybe all this time indoors has made you realize that your phone isn’t really chugging along as well as you’d like, or maybe you just want a bigger screen. Either way, Google’s Pixel 4 XL packs a ton of power into a solid package with a screen that’s great for watching movies or getting to work. Right now, it’s down to $600 for the 64GB option, which should be plenty of storage for covering the basics.
If you’re tired of getting that reminder that your disk is almost full, or you’re running out of room to store the family photos and all your favorite movies, a portable SSD should do the trick. They’re small, stay out of the way, and now come with plenty of storage without costing too much. Samsung’s 1 TB portable SSD is tiny and reliable, and you can get it for $20 off today at B&H Photo.
Now is as good a time as any to make new friends around the world, and unless your idea of a good time is deciphering cryptic codecs—because that’s exactly what it feels like with Google Translate sometimes—learning a new language might be something you’re into. Rosetta Stone licenses are heavily discounted today for anyone up for the challenge, including a lifetime license for $200 (down from $300). You can also put up $96 for 12 months of unlimited access, and $144 for two years. (But let’s be real: you’ll probably need more than two years.)
You’re getting full access to learn more than 24 of the world’s most common and popular languages, including Mandarin, French, German, Japanese, Greek, and even Hebrew. I can tell you from experience that the single most useful thing you can take on an international vacation is at least basic knowledge of the local language, so be sure to start practicing now for that post-quarantine trip you’ve had to put off.
There’s nothing worse than being stranded with no way to charge your smartphone or other pieces of battery-guzzling tech. You don’t have to worry about that with a power bank, and you can get not just one, but two of our favorites for the price of one. Anker’s 20,1000mAh PowerCore battery bank comes in a two-pack for $49 at Side Deal, which is basically a buy one, get one when you compare prices with other retailers. Why are you still here? CHECKOUT!

PS. Remember to buy sunscreen.
Diamond announced a few days ago that distribution of comics will resume on May 20th and they’ve already begun taking orders from DC. ComiXology is offering a 60-da free trial to their Unlimited service in the interim. But honestly, this is a great deal even if Diamond has their business together. It’s no secret COVID-19 has rocked the industry and threatened shops globally. If you are in a position to support your local shop in the coming month’s check-in to see how they are doing also.
ComiXology is offering a great opportunity to get caught up, revisit, or discover a series for the first time. I personally have several Marvel and Archie series loaded up on my iPad to ease the ability to read, but you can views all these titles on your computer too. As an Unlimited member, you will also get access to exclusive deals and sales each publisher has throughout the year.
This is a great opportunity for any comic or manga reader. And if you love the service after those 60 days, it’s just $5.99 after that.
We all love Monopoly, but who really wants to sit at the roundtable for three hours, somehow landing on Boardwalk and Park Place every roll whilst your properties seem to be situated in desolate wastelands that no one ever visits? Well, it’s cool every now and then, but if you don’t have much time to spare, Monopoly Speed might be, well, more your speed. It’s 25% off at Amazon today. Games are said to last just about 10 minutes, and here’s why:
Everyone rolls and buys at once so players don’t have to wait for their turn. During 4 rounds, players race against the timer to buy, trade, and sell properties faster than ever. The timer counts down each buying and trading stage, and there’s no break between stages. There are even 2 Go spaces, and players can get out of Jail free every time.
If that sounds like fun, roll over to Free Parking and grab this deal.
If you’re anything like me, you’ve got a bunch of random shit in the back of your car—cleaning supplies, oil changing equipment, and emergency gear in case there’s an accident that definitely isn’t my fault. All that junk, in turn, winds up cluttering your trunk, then what are you going to do with all that junk all that junk inside your trunk? Organize it. For $20 right now, you can get Highland’s on-the-go trunk organizer to help you with that.
Note that when you’re out in the driveway spring cleaning your car, that includes the trunk. Let me tell you, it makes grocery shopping a hell of a lot easier when you don’t have to move your various interior/exterior cleaning products and accessories around to find a place to put your bags. No more forcing passengers to CARRY the La Croix carton (@me next time); look your mess in the eyes and clean it up.
