Best Tech Deals

If you still don’t have enough Qi pads in your life, a couple of great ones are on sale in today’s Amazon Gold Box.

I suspect the more popular option will be this 10W pad for just $9, one of the best deals we’ve ever seen on any pad from a well-known brand like RAVPower. It’ll only charge iPhones at 5W, but compatible Android phones will be able to take advantage of the 10W power.

If you’re an iPhone owner and want to charge at faster speeds though, this $37 charging stand supports Apple’s needlessly complicated 7.5W charging standard. Just note that it has to be plugged into the included Quick Charge 3.0 adapter to operate; you can’t just plug it into any USB port.

Both deals are only available today though, so don’t miss out.


Update: This code was supposed to bring the price down to $20, but it seems like it’s only dropping to $26. We’ll update this post if we can figure out what’s wrong.

Unless you really need to print in color, Brother makes some of the only printers worth buying, and their small office-friendly MFCL2710DW is on sale for a consumer-level price today.

Like Brother’s home printers, this model spits out about 32 pages per minute, includes Wi-Fi connectivity, uses inexpensive and long-lasting toner, and just generally works much more reliably than any inkjet printer out there. The biggest advantage of this model over a consumer-level HL-series printer is that it includes a document feeder for the scanner, meaning it can automatically scan 50 pages in a row with no user input. You might use that feature, like, once, but you’ll probably be really glad you have it.

$120 is the best price Amazon’s ever listed on this model, so list that inkjet printer of yours on Craigslist, and go lock in your order.


SanDisk 256GB Dual Drive | $65 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

This 256GB flash drive has a retractable USB-C connector on one end for your newer devices, and a retractable standard USB port on the other for older computers. It’s going to be a long time until USB-C completely supplants the older connector, so you’ll definitely get some use out of this thing. $65 is the best price we’ve ever seen on this capacity.


LG 27" 4K IPS Display With FreeSync | $399 | Amazon

If you’re ready to make the leap to 4K (and if your computer can handle it), this 27" IPS display from LG is on sale for an all-time low $399 today. It even has FreeSync built in to match the monitor’s refresh rate to a game’s frame rate.


Tile Mate 4-Pack | $40 | Amazon

Whether you’re buying them all for yourself, or sharing them with particularly forgetful family members, we’ve never seen a better deal on the Tile Mate than this $40 4-pack. The Mate’s most obvious home is on your keychain, but it’d also work great on a gym bag, in your luggage, or even attached to a TV remote.


With its premium nylon construction and 6,000+ bend lifespan, Anker’s PowerLine+ run laps around Apple’s own Lightning cables, at a lower price point. For a limited time, you can get a pair of 6' cables for just $22. It’s one of the best things you’ll buy for yourself this year.


JackyLED 18-Outlet Vertical Power Strip | $25 | Amazon | Promo code LTC9MR54
Graphic: Shep McAllister

What were they thinking inventing this surge protector and not calling it the Power Tower? Missed marketing opportunities aside, it comes with a whopping 18 outlets, four USB ports, and its own 6.5' retractable power cord. Plus, it rotates for optimum space-saving. Get it for $25 today with promo code LTC9MR54.


Whether you need a spare card for your dash cam, your GoPro, your Switch, or anything else, this 64GB Samsung microSD card is down to its lowest price today.The gold model is down to $65 on Amazon today, an all-time low.


DirecTV Now is one of the better over-the-top cable replacements out there, and with this deal, there’s very little reason not to give it a try.

For a limited time, if you prepay for three months of the service at $35 per month, you’ll get a 4K Apple TV included for free. That Apple TV costs $179 normally, so you’re basically getting a $74 discount on the box, plus three months of live TV. No brainer.


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.

Last month, they offered our readers $10 off two year memberships, but this time around, you get a few more choices, ranging from a quick taste of the service to an extended commitment with additional savings:

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

Get two of them in the color of your choice (except brown and grey) for just $60 with promo code BESTCHOICEGRAVITY.

Travelpro Maxlite 5 21" Carry-On | $115 | Amazon
Travelpro Maxlite 5 25" Checked Bag | $131 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Travelpro’s Maxlite luggage series just keeps getting lighter. The Maxlite 3 was a reader favorite the last time we did a carry-on luggage poll, and the new Maxlite 5s are even easier on the scales.

Advertisement

Today on Amazon, both this 21" carry-on and 25" checked bag are on sale for the best prices yet. Even with a full set of spinner wheels, the carry-on weighs less than six pounds, and the checked bag is just a hair over eight, so you’ll have a lot of pounds to play with before you risk an overweight baggage fee.


Lectrofan White Noise Machine | $45 | Amazon | Clip the $5 coupon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If excessive noise (or utter silence) makes it difficult for you to doze off, this feature-packed white noise machine might be the key to a better night’s sleep.

This LectroFan can pump out 10 white noise sounds and 10 fan sounds, all of which are generated dynamically, without any jarring looping. And this particular model also includes EU and UK plug adapters, so you can take it with you when you travel.

It has over 7,000 reviews and a 4.6-star rating on Amazon, and hasn’t really gone on sale this year, but a $5 coupon brings it down to $45 today.


Update: Sold out

A good label maker is something everyone should own, and the Brother P-touch Handy Label Maker is back in stock for just $10 today, matching an all-time low. This thing can output nine fonts, over 200 symbols, and even 10 different frames on multiple sizes and finishes of label tape, so you’ll have the freedom to get creative.


KitchenAid KHM512ER 5-Speed Ultra Power Hand Mixer | $26 | Amazon
Graphic: Erica Offutt

If you’re in need of a new hand mixer, this KitchenAid one is just $26, the lowest Amazon price we’ve ever seen. It has 5 speeds to take care of most of your stirring needs, and has an impressive 4.2 stars with 2,600 reviews. The beautiful empire red color is an added bonus.


Stainless Steel Pegboard Set | $53 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Spring cleaning means it’s time to get get the garage organized enough that you can actually park inside it. This stainless steel pegboard set has never been cheaper, and includes a variety of shelves, hooks, and brackets to get your tools off the floor, and onto the wall.


Update: This deal is back if you missed it a few weeks ago.

Victorinox’s Fibrox 8” chef’s knife is one of your favorite chef’s knives period, and by far the best value in the industry. It’s also the knife I’ve used almost every day for almost five years. Amazon has it for $30 right now, which is an absolute steal for the quality you’re getting.


Naipo Car Seat Massaging Cushion | $50 | Amazon | Promo code MTALXAK9
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you ever take long road trips, the endless miles might pass by a little faster if you’re getting a massage along the way. This Naipo massaging cushion cover is designed for car seats, but it includes both car and AC power adapters, so you can use it at home as well. Get it for $50 today with promo code MTALXAK9.


Black Mountain Exercise Stability Balls | Amazon
Graphic: Erica Offutt

Whether you’re amping up your workout or switching out your office chair, a stability ball will improve your posture and engage your core. You can take your pick between a few different sizes and colors in this sale, all discounted at least $5. Plus, these balls can hold up to 2,000 pounds, which seems like overkill to me, but I guess can’t hurt.


Copper Chef Gold Box | Amazon
Image: Amazon

Upgrade your pots and pans with Amazon’s Copper Chef sale, today only. Why are copper pans a big deal? Copper conducts heat 20 times more effectively than stainless steel, boasting better heat distribution, and the ability to withstand heat up to 850°, which means you’ll be able to use these in your Big Green Egg or similar cooker. Plus, these pans are all up to 25% off today.

The largest set in the sale contains all the basic pans you need, with two frying pans, two sauce pans, a casserole pan, and they’ve thrown in a fry basket and a strainer. They’re also offering some frying pan sets, in both round and square, and deep dish pans. Just remember, this sale will only last through the end of the day or until the product sells out, so don’t wait for this sale to cool down.


As you know, keeping your knives sharp keeps you safer, since you’ll have to use less pressure to slice. A whetstone (or water stone) is how the pros keep their knives in the best shape, and this one is just $9 today, the cheapest it’s been for almost 11 months So, if you’re looking to do your own knife sharpening, get this deal before it’s gone. I would recommend watching a couple of videos on how to do it, if you’ve never tried before.


ECOVACS N79 Robotic Vacuum | $159 | Amazon | Promo code ECOVACS1

Vacuuming is simultaneously the worst chore, and the chore most easily and cheaply pawned off to a robot.

Advertisement

While it lacks the brand recognition of a Roomba, and we can’t personally vouch for them like we can for the Eufy RoboVac 11, this ECOVACS vacuum has solid reviews, and are insanely affordable today at $159 with promo code ECOVACS1. You can even control it from your phone, which is very rare in this price range.


Michelin Wiper Blade Sale | Amazon

Kershaw Emerson Knife | $27 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

You know that person that always seems to have a knife ready to go when a box needs to be cut open? You could be that person for $27, the best price of the year on this Kershaw Emerson folding knife. As we know, the knife haver is respected by all.


Dr. Meter DM50 Laser Distance Measure | $20 | Amazon | Promo code K9FQ5X9U

iClever Smart Plug | $15 | Amazon | Promo code CLEVER99

$15's a great price for an Alexa and Google Home-compatible smart plug, but the fact that this one has a couple of USB charging ports too is a nice cherry on top. Just use code CLEVER99 at checkout to save $5.


You might not have an immediate need for a pressure washer, but if you own a home, it’s a useful thing to stash in the back or your garage. For a limited time, Amazon’s marked down a popular GreenWorks washer down to $91 today, a match for the best price we’ve seen this year. Just be sure to get yours before this deal is blasted away.


AUKEY Table Lamp | $19 | Amazon | Use code AUKEYTL6

This table lamp may not have LED lights or be able to charge your phone, but it’s touch sensitive and has a full RGB spectrum. Use the code AUKEYTL6 at checkout and add one of these to your nightstand and make your bedroom into a disco.


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

Update: This sale ends today.

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% sitewide sale holds 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 $225 on the new, advanced Wave mattress (which is going to get more expensive starting next week, so you’re basically stacking discounts). Just use promo code NUMBERONE at checkout to see the savings stack up.

The best part of the deal is that any accessories you order at the same time will be discounted as well. I’m personally a huge fan of Casper’s pillow, but they make everything from adjustable bed frames to sheets to box springs, and unlike the mattresses, those are hardly ever eligible for discounts. You have the weekend, so sleep on it if you must, but they don’t run sales like this often.


RXBAR Mint Chocolate 12-Pack | $20 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you like RXBAR’s mint chocolate flavor, Amazon will ship you a dozen bars for under $20 today, if you use Subscribe & Save. Just remember to cancel after your first order, unless you want to keep receiving them (which you very well might!).


Best Lifestyle Deals

Braun Silk-épil Women’s Epilator | $80 | Amazon
Braun Gillette Venus Silk-Expert Hair Removal System | $150 | Amazon | After $50 mail-in rebate
Graphic: Jillian Lucas

Shaving is the pits (especially in the pits). Make your life a little bit easier with this sale on hair removal tools from Braun and Venus. Pick up an epilator for quick, relatively painless hair removal, or opt for something a little more permanent and go for the Silk-Expert light-therapy hair removal tool. Either way, you won’t need to shave as much anymore, which is a win in my book.

Note: The price for the Silk-Expert is after the $50 mail-in rebate you get with purchase.


May the Fourth Sale | ThinkGeek
Graphic: Jillian Lucas

May the Fourth isn’t actually here for another week and a half, but ThinkGeek is cashing in on the impending Star Wars frenzy. They’re taking up to 80% off four pages worth of merchandise. Everything from t-shirts and socks to animatronic Porgs. There’s even a freakin’ R2-D2 french press.


Camelbak Water Packs | Woot
Graphic: Erica Offutt

Suck in about $50 in savings on this 100-ounce Camlbak K.U.D.U 8 hydration pack from Woot. These K.U.D.U packs are the tightest and lightest packs, but still have some storage space to carry your phone, keys, and any bike repair tools you might need. They’re listed around $100 on Amazon, so this Woot deal is a no-brainer if you’ve been thirsting for a new pack.


23andMe DNA Test - Health + Ancestry | $139 | Amazon

If you aren’t freaked out by privacy concerns of DNA testing kits (basically, they may sell anonymized genetic data, but not personally identifiable data), the tests are getting better, and 23andMe’s are on sale today.

Advertisement

Both the Health + Ancestry (which now has FDA approval to test for breast cancer risk factors) and Ancestry (which is a lot more precise than it used to be) are on sale for the best prices we’ve seen since Black Friday. I probably wouldn’t buy one as a gift, but if you want to try one yourself, these are great prices.


30% off any order | Cole Haan
Graphic: Jillian Lucas

Update: Cole Haan removed the $175+ threshold, so it’s now 30% off any order.

If reliability is something you crave in a pair of shoes (if it isn’t, you may need to reconsider), I bet you have Cole Haan in your closet. And if you’re looking for a new pair but don’t want to spend the normal asking price, Cole Haan is taking 30% off any order of $175+ during their Semi-Annual Event. Plus, you’ll get free shipping on everything. Finally get a pair of ZERØGRAND’s (or the newer 2.ZERØGRAND’s) or maybe a pair of sandals for whenever the weather decides to cooperate.
