Top Deals


For a few years now, Antec’s USB-powered HDTV bias light has been one of our most reliably popular deals whenever it went on sale. The problem: It only got a significant discount once every few months. Luckily, a copycat has emerged to fill in the gap.

Just like the Antec model, these Vansky LED light strips plug directly into your TV’s USB port for power, and sticks to the back of the set via built-in adhesive. Once you turn your TV on, the light strip will cast a soft glow on the wall behind it, which can reduce eyestrain when watching in the dark, and improve your TV’s perceived black levels.

Whenever we post a deal on the Antec light, it sells out within hours. I’m not sure if that’ll be the case today, but I wouldn’t take any chances.

Amazon’s in-house exercise bar is fairly priced at its usual $20, but for a limited time, they’re knocking it down to $16, the first discount they’ve ever offered. [AmazonBasics Pull-Up and Exercise Bar, $16]

The Dell XPS 13 is still the Windows laptop to beat, and you can get one packed with 8GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD, and a 3200x1800 IPS touchscreen for just $1,000 today. That’s not exactly cheap, but it’s undoubtedly a bargain if you expect a lot out of your laptop. [Dell XPS 13, $1,000]


It’s not often that Amazon features a laptop as one of its deals of the day, so anyone who uses a desktop at home or work should definitely check out this $270 Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga for their portable computing needs.

This model’s 4GB of RAM is double what you’d find in most similarly priced Chromebooks, and the 128GB SSD is positively spacious compared to the 16-32GB flash chips included in Google’s alternatives. The real highlight feature though is the touchscreen. Sure, at 11.6", and 1366x768 resolution, this probably won’t be your main computer. But since it’s a Yoga, you can flip it into all sorts of different poses. Need to carry it around? Turn it into a tablet. Finished working on a plane, and just want to watch a movie? Flip it into stand mode to get the keyboard out of the way.

Is it an amazing laptop? No. But it seems like a hell of a deal at $270. [Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 2-in-1 Convertible, $270]


Dyson’s bladeless fans look like something out of science fiction, and at their usual prices, they might as well be fictional for most of us. However, a bunch of refurbished models are on sale today in Amazon’s Gold Box, so it might be time to give them another look.

To be clear, at $150-$170, these are still not cheap fans. But if you’ve had one on your wish list, that sure beats swallowing their usual $200-$350 price tags. My pick of the litter is the AM04 Hot+Cool for $155, which can act as a fan and a space heater, but be sure to head over to Amazon to see the full list.

Like all Gold Box deals, these prices are only available today, and the best stuff might sell out early, so lock in your orders before they get blown away. [Dyson Fan Gold Box]


Unlike those disposable chemical hand warmers, this Zippo lasts for up to 6 hours at a time, and can be reused by filling it with a splash of lighter fluid. Plus, it just looks really cool hot. [Zippo 6-Hour Chrome Hand Warmer, $10]


The Xbox One is getting DVR functionality this year, and the TV tuner you’ll need to take advantage of it is marked down to $50 right now, matching an all-time low. [Hauppauge Digital TV Tuner, $50]

Don’t forget, you’ll need an OTA antenna to go with it.


Not only can this LED desk lamp put out three different color temperatures at four brightness settings; it can also charge your phone via its built-in USB port. What more could you possibly need? [ANNT LED Touch Desk Lamp with USB Charging Port, $26 with code MLXJQ3LE]


Contigo makes some of the best liquid vessels you can buy, and their Addison water bottle and Autoseal travel mug are both on sale today.

Contigo Addison Water Bottle, 24-Ounce ($10) | Amazon

Contigo Autoseal West Loop Stainless Steel Travel Mug with Easy Clean Lid ($15) | Amazon


In the world of USB battery pack deals, it doesn’t get much better than $9 for 10,000mAh. We’ve seen this deal a few times before, and to say it’s been popular wouldn’t really do it justice. [KMASHI 10000mAh External Battery Power Bank, $9 with code JDI3KZ3Y]


Gaming mice don’t get much better than this. Razer’s Mamba Tournament Edition sports an absurd 16,000 DPI sensor, lift-off cut-off distance as of 0.1 mm, and the most insane backlighting system I’ve ever seen. It’s also never been cheaper. [Razer Mamba Tournament Edition - Chroma, $70]

For $16 less, you can still score the DeathAdder Chroma, which has a slightly less impressive backlight, and merely a 10,000 DPI sensor. [Razer DeathAdder Chroma, $54]


Camelbaks are essential gear for any avid camper or hiker, and Amazon’s offering all-time low prices on several models today.

Smartphone camera lens attachments have been around for years, but I’ve always held off because I didn’t want to use a specific case on my phone, or pay for a new set of lenses every time I bought a new device. This clip-on solution from Aukey though seems to be a more versatile alternative, and looks like an awesome option at $10.

Unlike most lens add-ons, Aukey’s 3-in-1 kit uses a clamp to attach to your device, which means it should work with virtually any smartphone. Once that clip’s in place, you get to choose from three different lenses: Fisheye, wide angle, and macro. A handful of Amazon reviewers have uploaded sample photos and videos, and they look pretty great to my eyes, particularly the close-up macros.

The whole system is very reasonably priced at $17, but today you can use promo code FNKXYPLR to save an extra $7. [Aukey 3 in 1 Clip-on Cell Phone Camera Lens Kit, $10 with code CVDFD4N4]


At $2.50 per bulb, it’s officially time to transition your entire house to LED. Plus, many power companies will even give you a $1-$2 statement credit for each one with proof of purchase. [Philips 60W Equivalent Soft White A19 LED Light Bulb (4-Pack), $10]


A good deal on a clothing iron probably isn’t the most exciting thing we’ve ever posted, but everyone should own one, and you could do a lot worse than this 4.5 star-rated Rowenta.

Amazon lists the price at $83, but the $6 coupon on the page will drop it to $77 at checkout, which is the second lowest price they’ve ever listed. [Rowenta DW5197 Focus Steam Iron, $77 with $6 coupon]


Some people can’t live without their coffee. For me, it’s fizzy water. We’ve seen this SodaStream starter pack slightly cheaper before, but $50 is still a great deal, so be sure to grab it before it goes flat. [SodaStream Fountain Jet Soda Maker Starter Kit, $50]


Mpow’s Swift Bluetooth headphones were a breakout hit on Kinja Deals in 2015, and today, the 2nd-gen models are on sale for under $20. [Mpow Swift 2nd-Gen Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless Sports Headphones, $18 with code B7CLEELZ]

And though they have fewer reviews, these SoundPeats alternatives add in an over-ear hook for added security. [SoundPEATS Q9A Wireless Bluetooth Sweatproof Secure Fit Earbuds (Black), $16 with code SDQ9A15U]


One of the only downsides of cast iron pans is that they can be a nightmare to clean, but this 4.6 star-rated chainmail scrubber can scrape away caked-on food without hurting your seasoning, or resorting to soap. [Hudson Cast Iron Cleaner XL 7x7 Premium Stainless Steel Chainmail Scrubber, $14]


Victorinox’s Fibrox 8" chef’s knife is one of your favorite kitchen blades, and today, the nimbler 6" version is all the way down to $20. I’ve been using the same 8" knife for years, and it’s maintained a fantastic edge with very little maintenance. [Victorinox 40570 Cutlery 6-Inch Chef’s Knife, $20]


Today’s best console deals are nothing if not unique. If you’re interested in an Xbox One, this Gears of War Bundle comes with a free bonus Halo gamepad and a copy of Far Cry Primal, for some reason. If you’d prefer a PS4, this Star Wars Battlefront bundle costs $50 more than usual, but it comes with a Sphero BB-8 droid toy, which is a $140 value on its own.

Xbox One Gears of War Bundle + Far Cry Primal + Halo Controller ($350) | eBay

Sony PS4 Star Wars Battlefront Bundle + Sphero BB-8 ($400) | eBay


ExOfficio’s Give-N-Go boxer brief was one of your favorite pairs of men’s underwear, and the best-selling variety of underwear we’ve ever posted. If you prefer standard briefs though, today’s you lucky day. [ExOfficio Men’s Give-N-Go Brief, $12. Black only]


2016 will be the year of Quick Charge 3.0, which can take your phone from zero to 80 in 35 minutes, and you can get ready with some of the first deals we’ve seen on compatible chargers.

AUKEY Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 USB Wall Charger ($15) | Amazon | Use code TS8778MR

AUKEY Quick Charge 3.0 USB Car Charger ($14) | Amazon | Use code KUTGGMWI


You don’t need a yard, or even any gardening skills to grow your own food at home; you just need Miracle-Gro’s Aerogarden line. These fully-integrated, soil-free indoor gardens can grow herbs, vegetables, and salad greens up to five times faster than regular soil, and nearly the entire lineup is on sale right now.

Prices start at just $45 for the Sprout model, which can grow three pods at a time, and range up to $198 for the Bounty, which fits nine. All of these prices are either all-time lows, or the best we’ve seen outside of special one-day promotions, so don’t hesitate. If you need help deciding, each Amazon page has a comparison chart with all of the main features.


Your Mac probably doesn’t have enough USB ports, but this brushed aluminum 4-port hub will look right at home next to the rest of your Apple gear. [Aukey 4-Port Aluminum USB Hub, $11 with code KKR7ZNJE]


Want Bluetooth audio and handsfree calling in your older car? This little dongle takes the Bluetooth signal from your phone, and retransmits over a 3.5mm AUX connection, or to the FM radio station of your choice. If you go the FM route, the sound quality will take a hit, but it’ll be a truly wireless experience, and probably your best option short of buying an entirely new stereo. We’ve seen deals on similar products before, but rarely for this cheap. [Senbowe SW-BFT-01 Wireless In-Car FM Transmitter with Bluetooth, $11 with code BI25OHDH]
