Best Tech Deals

Refurb HP EliteDesk Mini Desktop | $380 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

This tiny desktop punches above its weight with a Core i3 processor, 16GB of RAM, 256GB SSD, and Windows 10 Pro, all for $380, if you don’t mind a refurb. At this size, it would be an ideal home theater PC or closet-based Plex server, and with these specs, you could even do some light gaming on it. Just note that this price is only available today, or until sold out.


Refurb LG B7A 55" OLED TV | $1149 | Walmart
Refurb LG B7A 65" OLED TV | $1590 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you love inky blacks and vibrant colors—and who doesn’t?—this 55" 2017 OLED LG TV is down to $1149 today at Walmart as a refurb, or an all-time low $1590 for 65", with small additional discounts available if you pick up in a store.

As you’d expect from any high-end TV these days, that gets you a 4K panel and Dolby Vision HDR, but OLED technology means the blacks will be far richer, and the colors more vibrant than any LCD-based screen you can buy. Whichever size you choose, it’ll still cost you, but your eyes will tell you it was worth it.


Samsung 860 EVO 500GB SSD | $100 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

The best all-around SSD for most people is down to $100 for 500GB, the best price ever. It’d obviously be a great upgrade over a spinning hard drive for your computer, but you could also stick it in a cheap enclosure to create your own, super-fast external drive.


RAVPower USB-C Power Delivery Battery Pack | $52 | Amazon | Promo code 2XRA4PGQ

There are only a handful of USB battery packs out there with USB-C Power Delivery, and this is the lowest price we’ve ever seen on one of them.

Advertisement

$52 gets you RAVPower’s 26,800mAh battery pack, complete with a 30W USB-C port that can power a MacBook or Nintendo Switch at basically full speed, plus two regular USB ports as well. Just use promo code 2XRA4PGQ at checkout to save a whopping $30.


20% off Almost Everything | Monoprice | Promo code YAY20
Screenshot: Monoprice

Whether you’re looking to mount your TV to the wall, upgrade your headphones, or just stock up on extra cables, Monoprice is taking 20% off sitewide today with promo code YAY20, with no minimum purchase required. There are a fair number of exclusions, including (sadly) 3D printers and PlayStation and Xbox stuff, but most things that Monoprice markets under its own brand name should be fair game.


Anker 3' USB-C to A Cable | $8 | Amazon | Promo code ANKERC2A
Anker 6' USB-C to C Cable | $9 | Amazon | Promo code ANKERC2A
Anker 3' USB-C to C Cable | $10 | Amazon | Promo code ANKERCTC
Anker 6' USB-C to C Cable | $11 | Amazon | Promo code ANKERCTC
Photo: Anker

Anker’s nylon-wrapped, kevlar-reinforced PowerLine+ cables look great and feel great to use, and they’re running a big sale this week on USB-C version. Take your pick of a USB-A-to-C cable in two different lengths and two different colors, or a Power Delivery-capable C-to-C cable. Just be sure to note the promo codes.


Amazon Fire TV Stick | $30 | Amazon
Roku Streaming Stick+ | $54 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Whether you prefer Amazon’s Alexa-powered Fire TV interface, or the flexibility offered by Roku, there’s a great deal on a streaming dongle for you today.

Advertisement

The Fire TV Stick only supports 1080p output, but its gives you all the powers of Alexa, and today’s deal is $10 less than usual.

If you need your stick to support 4K and HDR content, the Roku Streaming Stick+ is the dongle to beat. Compared to the Fire TV Stick, it also includes access to a larger ecosystem of apps, and the ability to use the Roku mobile app and a set of headphones for private listening, which would be perfect for a bedroom TV. This isn’t as low as it’s been, but it’s a solid deal.


Brother HL2390DW | $100 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

If you’re still wrestling with a terrible inkjet printer at home, do yourself a solid and pick up the reliable Brother HL-2390DW monochrome laser printer today for just $100 today, down from its usual $120-$140.

Advertisement

While it doesn’t print in color, it more than makes up for that with the ability to spit out 32 pages per minute, duplex printing, and inexpensive toner cartridges that can last for years without being replaced. We’ve posted a lot of Brother deals in the past, and we’ve heard nothing but good things from readers about them.


8-Pack Eneloop AA Batteries | $16 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Want to see firsthand why people love Eneloop rechargeable batteries so much? This 8-pack of AAs is on sale for $16 on Amazon today, about $4 less than usual, and the best price of the year. Eneloop deals tend to sell out extremely quickly, so I wouldn’t wait.


Samsung U3 32GB MicroSD Card | $11 | Amazon
Samsung U3 64GB MicroSD Card | $18 | Amazon
Samsung U3 128GB MicroSD Card | $34 | Amazon
Samsung U3 256GB MicroSD Card | $85 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Samsung’s U3-rated microSD cards are some of the fastest and most popular options out there—I have the 128GB model in my own Nintendo Switch—and all four sizes are down to all-time low prices today on Amazon. If you need extra space for your action cam, smartphone, tablet, Switch, or anything else, these are extremely good deals.


NETGEAR 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Unmanaged Switch | $15 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If your router doesn’t include enough ethernet ports for your liking, this 5-port gigabit switch from NETGEAR is a cheap and easy way to solve that. $15 is within $1.50 of the best price Amazon’s ever listed on this model.


VIZIO 75" Class 4k (2160p) Smart XLED Home Theater Display | $1298 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

$1298 would be a solid price for a barebones 75" 4K TV, but this Vizio is anything but. With Dolby Vision HDR, 32 local dimming zones, and an array of smart apps, it has just about every feature you could want.


Anker PowerWave Fast Wireless Charger Stand | $24 | Amazon
Graphic: Jillian Lucas

Charge your phone faster with Anker’s PowerWave wireless charging stand. At $24, it isn’t the cheapest phone stand you can buy, but it is the cheapest we’ve seen with 7.5W iPhone fast charging, and can charge through heavy-duty cases. Plus, you can flip your phone horizontal and watch TV or videos while charging without a bulky wire getting in the way.


TaoTronics Noise Canceling Over Ear Headphones | $40 | Amazon | Promo code KINJAH48
Photo: Amazon

You don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars to enjoy the benefits of noise canceling headphones: These TaoTronics noise canceling over-ears are down to just $40 today with promo code KINJAH48.

Advertisement

I’ve actually tried these, and while the ANC isn’t as impressive as what you’d get from Sony or Bose, it definitely works, especially against consistent noises like fans or airplane engines. They’re also extremely comfortable, and fold up for easy storage. $40 is a steal, is what I’m saying.


Wireless Earphones Soundcore | $60 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Anker has a new, less expensive version of its excellent true wireless headphone line, and you can grab a set for just $60 today, or $20 less than usual.

Advertisement

Like the original Liberty headphones, the Liberty Lites will run for 3.5 hours on a charge untethered - the main difference is that the included charging case only holds an extra 9 hours worth of battery, vs. 24 hours for the Liberty, and 48 for the Liberty+. Still though, that’s enough for a day’s worth of use in almost any situation, and the case is noticeably more pocket friendly, which was one of my least favorite aspects of the original models.


iPad Mini 4 128GB | $299 | Walmart
iPad (Fifth Generation) 128GB | $349 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Apple hasn’t updated the iPad Mini 4 in a few years, but if you don’t need the latest and greatest processor, and you prefer the smaller footprint, Walmart’s taking $100 off the 128GB model today, the best price we’ve ever seen.

Advertisement

Or, for $50 more, you can opt for the 9.7" iPad fifth generation with the same amount of storage, and a processor that’s one year newer. It’s priced at $80 below its original MSRP, though unlike the iPad Mini, there is a newer model available.


Bose’s wireless QuietComfort 35 noise-cancelling over-ears are basically a mute button for the rest of the world, and you can get them for $299 today, down from the usual $329. In addition to amazing sound quality and noise cancelation, they even work with Google Assistant, and as of a firmware update last week, Alexa too.

Advertisement

If you prefer in-ear headphones, the Bose QuietControl 30 Bluetooth earbuds are also on sale for $249, or $50 less than usual.

<Waves frantically in your eye-line to get your attention>

Those are the best deals we’ve ever seen on these!


VPNs have been in the news, and whether you want to get around video geoblocks, circumvent proxy filters, or just keep prying eyes out of your browsing data while using sketchy public Wi-Fi, reader-favorite Private Internet Access has a deal to fit your needs.

Private Internet Access doesn’t do much in the way of discounting, but they offer exclusive pricing and packages just for our readers that you won’t find anywhere else. Here are your options, and what you’d pay if you bought the same plan elsewhere:

These deals are only for our readers, but we aren’t sure how long they’ll be available, so go ahead and sign up while you can.

Best Home Deals

If you’ve ever eaten at a nice steakhouse, you were probably eating sous-vide meat. Here’s a secret though: It’s really easy to get those kinds of results at home. Amazon’s listing this best-selling Anova sous-vide circulator for $80 today, which isn’t quite as good as the deal we saw on Prime Day, but is still a very solid price.


KitchenAid Cold Brew Coffee Maker | $65 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you’re hooked on smooth, caffeine-rich cold brew coffee, you can save a lot of money by making it at home, and KitchenAid’s brewer is the nicest looking option we’ve seen.

Advertisement

Just put coarse coffee grounds in the hopper, add water, and take the grounds out after a day or so. The entire assembly can live in your fridge, and each batch results in 28 ounces of coffee concentrate, which is good for 14 servings if you dilute it properly.

$65 is a solid $12-$15 less than usual, and an all-time low, so don’t sleep on it.


Paderno Spiralizer | $20 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

This Paderno spiralizer can cut your favorite fruits and vegetables into versatile stings and strands, and is on sale for $20 today, an all-time low. It’s the perfect gift for the home chef who has everything.


Back to School Furniture Sale | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

I’ll tell you what, back-to-school furniture is a whole lot nicer looking today than it was when I was in college. This one-day sale on Amazon includes mid-century modern-styled furniture, plus several mattresses, on sale for shockingly low prices. That coffee table above is only $55, and the shelves are only $29, just for starters. They’re not going to be heirloom quality, but they’ll get the job done while looking way too nice to belong in a dorm room.


Char-Broil Potato Screws (6-Pack) | $8 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

It’s almost barbecue season, and you can be ready with a set of Char-Broil potato screws, now marked down $8 for six, the best price ever. As you might have guessed from the name, you screw these stainless steel corkscrews into potatoes, and throw them on the grill. The screws make them easier to grab with tongs or gloves, and help transfer grill heat to the inside of the potato, which makes them cook faster.


August Third Generation Smart Lock | $99 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

August’s third genration Smart Lock lets you lock and unlock your door from using your phone, and you can get the silver model for just $99 today, an all-time low.

Advertisement

Assuming you have your phone with you whenever you leave the house, an August Smart Lock-installed door will auto lock behind you and unlock as you approach. It’s especially useful because you don’t have to necessarily be home to grant or restrict access to people like dog walkers, maintenance workers, or other people who need to come into your house; just send them a guest key with the August app. And since it integrates with your existing deadbolt, you can continue using a physical key as well, if your phone ever dies.

Unlike previous August locks, this one doesn’t have Wi-Fi built in—it uses Bluetooth to talk to your phone—but you can add a Wi-Fi hub to your router to access it over the internet from anywhere.


Belkin’s WeMo Mini Smart Plug recently got native Apple HomeKit support in a firmware update, and Amazon’s marking the occasion with a three-for-$75 sale.

Advertisement

Despite its diminutive size, this includes all the same features as the full-sized WeMo Switch, including IFTTT support, Alexa compatibility, and an Away mode that will randomize your lights to deter ne’er-do-wells.


Amazon’s fired up a Yankee candle sale today. You’ll score around $5 to $6 in savings on your favorite, Balsam and Cedar, and a few other classics like Clean Cotton, Home Sweet Home and more. Click here to get a sense of all of the scents.


Zero Gravity Chairs Case Of (2) Lounge Patio Chairs | $70 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

It was a little late to the party, but spring is finally here for most of the country, and you can enjoy it to the fullest with these zero gravity outdoor lounge chairs. Get two of them in the color of your choice for just $70 with Walmart. That should leave you with more money to spend on other patio essentials like string lights, or drinks to put in the built-in cupholders.


Walmart Patio Clearance Sale

Summer’s not over yet, and you can take full advantage with Walmart’s massive patio clearance sale. Grills, storage boxes, and lots of patio furniture are included, most with free shipping available.


10% off Any Order With Purchase of a Mattress | Casper | Promo code SLUMBER10
Photo: Casper

Beyond the standard $50 discounts you hear about in the middle of every podcast, Casper mattresses don’t go on sale often, and Casper accessory deals are even rarer. But this weekend only, Casper’s 10% Labor Day sitewide saleholds the promise of serious savings, if you still haven’t gotten rid of that old coil spring.

Advertisement

To get this deal, you have to buy a mattress (sorry, dog mattresses don’t count), so you can’t take advantage if you’re only shopping for accessories. But 10% savings on a standard Casper mattress works out to nearly $100 on a queen, or as much as $240 on the new, advanced Wave mattress. Just use promo code SLUMBER10 at checkout to see the savings stack up.


Buzio 48" x 72" 15 Pound Weighted Blanket | $56 | Amazon | Promo code UZ67IR34
Buzio 60" x 80" 15 Pound Weighted Blanket | $67 | Amazon | Promo code J6OZY7XO
Buzio 60" x 80" 20 Pound Weighted Blanket | $80 | Amazon | Promo code G3VTO4N3
Buzio 60" x 80" 25 Pound Weighted Blanket | $127 | Amazon | Promo code BESEIN66

I know it’s summer and everything, but weighted blankets can work wonders for your anxiety in addition to keeping you warm, and several different models are on sale today for some of the best prices we’ve seen, including a rare discount on a 25 pounder. Just note the promo codes.

Advertisement

Personally, I want my weighted blankets to be capable of breaking ribs, but the general recommendation is 10% of your body weight. Not to stress you out, but we wouldn’t expect this deal to last for long.

The REI Labor Day Sale, one of the retailer’s biggest sale of the year, is here. Get up to 40% off on an almost overwhelming amount of outdoor gear, from camping, to paddling, to hiking, to cycling, and everything in between.

Best Media Deals

Preorder The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild: Creating a Champion | $25 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Breath of the Wild is one of the greatest games ever made, so we’ll forgive Nintendo for spiking the football with a ~400 page hardcover compendium full of design artwork, commentary about the game’s development, and a history of the Breath of the Wild’s take on Hyrule.

Advertisement

The book doesn’t come out until November, but you can preorder it today for $25, or $15 off. Plus, if it gets any cheaper between now and release day (it was available for $24 at one point, so it’s possible), you’ll automatically get the best price.


Lilith’s Brood: The Complete Xenogenesis Trilogy | $3 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Before the adaptation comes out on Netflix, catch up on Octavia Butler’s Lilith’s Brood: The Xenogenesis Trilogy. The classic trilogy is regularly taught in college courses, and the Kindle version is an absolute steal at just $3, this weekend only.


Best Gaming Deals

Update: The program switches over tomorrow, so lock in your orders to save 20% today. You won’t be charged until the game ships, so you can always cancel later if you change your mind.

Advertisement

Amazon just announced that it will be discontinuing its 20% preorder discount on physical video games on August 28, and replacing it with a $10 Prime member credit on select games. A $12 cash discount is certainly preferable to a $10 store credit, though it sounds like some digital games may be included in the new benefit, so we’ll withhold our verdict until we see how wide-ranging the credits are.

In the meantime though, you still have until the 28th to lock in preorders with the 20% discount. We’ve listed out some of the most popular upcoming titles on this post, but the discount should work on basically any physical game, as long as you’re a Prime member. Just note that you won’t see the discount until checkout, and you won’t be charged until the game ships.

Personally, I just put in an order for Fallout 76, which includes access to the beta.


View-Master VR Starter Kit | $8 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

It’s not as advanced as a Samsung Gear VR or Oculus Rift, but if you have a smartphone and $8, you can experience VR with this View-Master VR starter set. The View-Master is actually just a Google Cardboard-compatible VR headset, except, you know, it’s not made of cardboard, even if it’s priced like it could be.


Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild | $45 | Walmart | Also available at Amazon
Super Mario Odyssey | $45 | Walmart
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe | $45 | Walmart | Also available at Amazon
Mario Tennis Aces | $45 | Walmart | Also available at Amazon

Tabletop and Board Game Sale | ThinkGeek
Graphic: Shep McAllister

ThinkGeek’s celebrating International Tabletop Day with a huge sale on board games and tabletop gaming accessories, for a limited time. Inside, you’ll find levitating construction sets, a bunch of puzzles, and a whole slew of board games. If you have any particular recommendations, be sure to drop them in the comments.


When these 3/4-sized Arcade1Up arcade cabinets first went on preorder for $299, we thought it was a mistake, since they were supposed to cost $399. At this point though, it seems clear that $299 is in fact what they now cost, but inventory is still limited, since they were out of stock for awhile.

Anyway, they’re all back now, and they’re still $299, so if you want one, now’s your chance.
