Today’s Best Tech Deals

Audio Technica ATH-M40X Headphones | $79 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Audio Technica’s venerable ATH-M40x headphones (along with their larger M50x sibling) are our readers’ favorite wired headphones, and you can try on a pair for $79 right now, about $20 less than usual. It might be a little bit of a stretch to buy wired headphones in 2019, but between the M40x’s build quality, comfort, flat tuning response, and widely lauded sound quality, they’d make for great office headphones, where Bluetooth isn’t as big a deal.


Oternal Aluminum Phone Stand | $6 | Amazon | 50% discount shown at checkout.
Graphic: Amazon

Amazon is littered with inexpensive, poorly Photoshopped aluminum phone and tablet stands, but if you’ve somehow not bought one for your desk after all these years, $6 is one of the best prices we’ve seen. Just note that you won’t see the discount until checkout.


Anker just keeps on iterating on its true wireless earbuds, and now, you can get the new Soundcore Liberty Neos for an all-time low $40, down from the usual $50.

As Anker’s newest budget true wireless buds, there aren’t too many bells and whistles here, save for the ability for both earbuds to operate independently (many true wireless earbuds have one bud pair to the other, rather than both pairing to your phone), and Bluetooth 5.0, which ensures a rock solid connection from a longer distance.

The earbuds should play on for 3.5 hours on a charge, and the charging case includes 12 hours worth of battery life too for longer sessions. That’s not as much as some of Anker’s more expensive models, or higher-end options like Apple’s AirPods, but it’s honestly enough for most situations.


Mpow H5 Noise Canceling Bluetooth Headphones | $39 | Amazon | Promo code MPOW284A1
Photo: Amazon

While I’m sure the sound quality and noise cancellation abilities of these Mpow over-ear Bluetooth headphones don’t live up to the likes of Sony’s WH1000XM3s line or Bose’s QC35s, they annihilate the competition on price at just $39 (with promo code MPOW284A1).

These aren’t the only ~$40 noise canceling headphones we’ve seen around these parts, but this new 2019 model includes two noise canceling microphones for more accurate cancelation, a luxury at this price point.

If you’re on a budget, and want to drown out airplane noise or your annoying coworkers, they could be worth trying out. Just be sure to use promo code MPOW284A1 at checkout to get the deal.


Amazon Echo Dot | $25 | Amazon
Amazon Echo Dot + TP-Link Smart Plug | $30 | Amazon

If you didn’t think to grab an Echo Dot on Prime Day, you’ve got another chance to save today with a deal that’s nearly as good. Get the Dot by itself for just $25, or pair it with a TP-Link Smart Plug for just $5 more.

I finally got one of these on Prime Day, and compared to my old 2nd Gen Echo Dot, its sound quality is significantly better (though still not amazing, granted), and it looks way nicer too.


Logitech Crayon For iPad | $50 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

The Apple Pencil is one of the best styli out there for artists, but if you just want to jot down notes on your iPad, the Logitech Crayon is more than good enough, at a lower price.

Normally $70, Amazon’s got it marked down to an all-time low $50 today. Just note that it’s only compatible with the latest iPad (currently on sale for $250), the new iPad Air, and the new iPad Mini; it won’t work with any iPad Pro or older iPad models.


Anker 30W Slim USB-C GaN Charger | $26 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

Anker’s answer to RAVPower’s slim, behind-the-sofa USB-C charger is here, and it’s on sale for $26 on Amazon this week, down from the usual $35. It’s not as powerful as the RAVPower version (30W vs. 45W), but it’s a fair bit cheaper than the $40 RAVPower charges.

It might seem like a little thing, but putting the USB-C port on the bottom, rather than the front, makes it much easier to hide this charger behind furniture without risking breaking your USB-C cable.


APC Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Whether you want to keep your critical electronics running in the event of a power outage, or just don’t want them to get fried, today’s APC Amazon Gold Box has a deal for you.

Advertisement

Inside, you’ll find great prices on UPS battery backups and surge protectors of all shapes and sizes. If you need to keep your desktop computer running during a power failure, there’s a 600VA UPS with your name on it.

As far as surge protectors go, you’ll find both an 6-outlet model with rotating connections and a wall unit with 4 rotating outlets and two USB charging ports. Needless to say, most people could make good use of both.

Like all Gold Box deals though, these prices are only available today, and the best stuff could sell out early, so lock in your orders before the lights go out.


Anker Roav Jump Starter Pro 1000A | $86 | Amazon | Clip the $20 coupon and use code ROAVRR44
Graphic: Shep McAllister

At $86 (after clipping the $20 coupon and using code ROAVRR44), Anker’s new Roav Jump Starter Pro isn’t the cheapest car jump starter we’ve seen, but its 1000A of peak output mean it can start pretty much any engine, up to 6L for a gas vehicle, or 4L for diesel. If you don’t buy one of these, you’ll probably be kicking yourself somewhere down the road (pun intended) when you’re stranded in your driveway with somewhere to be.

Advertisement

This being an Anker product, you’ll also find three high speed USB charging ports (one of which is a USB-C input and output), plus a flashlight that doubles as an SOS strobe, and even a DC output (cable not included) for powering 12V car accessories. Even if you already own a jump starter, these make amazing gifts. Believe me, your giftee will remember you the first time they’re able to start their car in the morning to get to work on time.

Today’s Best Home Deals

Rubermaid 12 Qt. Food Storage Container | $17 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

Rubbermaid’s 12 quart food storage container is quite a bit larger than your typical kitchen container, but it’s great for storing things you want to keep a lot of like rice, or large items like fruits.

But what it’s perhaps most commonly used for is as a sous-vide cooking container. It can withstand temperatures up to 212 degrees, so it’s built for high water temperatures, and its large capacity means you’ll have room for plenty of steaks, veggies, or uh, Thanksgiving turkeys. You can even buy a third party hinged lid with a hole for your sous-vide circulator that will help retain heat.

Today’s price is within $1 of an all-time low, so spend your savings on food to cook (or store) in there.


Cabeau Evolution Memory Foam Travel Pillow | $30 | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Listen, there’s really no good way to sleep on a plane. But if you absolutely must get some upright shut-eye, you should be using the Cabeau Evolution for head and neck support. This memory foam travel pillow handily won our Co-Op, with readers shouting out its ability to hold its shape (even though it significantly shrinks in size when packed in its carrying case) and unique front clasps. And right now, it’s on sale in black for $30. Get yours today before this deal takes off; all your upcoming summer travel will be a dream.


OXO Good Grips 4-Cup Fat Separator | $10 | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Good gravy! That’s a great price on the OXO Good Grips 4-Cup Fat Separator. For just $10, this gadget will strain out any unwanted bits from your concoction, and its special stopper will prevent excess fat from entering the spout. Simply allow a few minutes for fat to rise to the top after pouring, then remove the stopper and pour out the good stuff. Finally, you can stock up on stock and gravy that’s at least a little on the healthier side.


Philips Hue White Ambiance BR30 Bulb 2-Pack | $35 | Amazon | Clip the coupon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If your home features recessed lighting features, this is officially the time to upgrade them with smart bulbs. Philips’ Hue Ambiance BR30 bulbs can’t display every color of the rainbow, but they can shift between energizing daylight and soothing warm white, and every shade of white in between, and you can get two of them for just $35 today.

Advertisement

That’s $15 less than usual for the two-pack, and an all-time low on Amazon by $5. You’ll just need to clip the $.94 coupon to get the best price at checkout. Just note that you’ll need a compatible Hue Hub to control them.


Kasa Smart WiFi Plug Lite | $13 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Smart plugs are the atomic unit of smart home gear, and now you can grab TP-Link’s top-selling Kasa Smart Plug Lite (formerly called the Smart Plug Mini) for just $13, an all-time low.

These plugs won’t block the adjacent outlet, and work with your smartphone, Alexa, and Google Assistant anywhere you have an internet connection. Even if you only pull it out once per year to control holiday lights or something, it’s worth grabbing at this price.


First Alert Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detector | $23 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

There’s nothing sexy or exciting about this combo smoke and carbon monoxide detector from First Alert. It doesn’t have voice instructions, it doesn’t integrate with your smart home, and it doesn’t look as cool as a Nest Protect. But with over 2,000 reviews, it’s one of the top selling detectors for a reason, and if you don’t have enough in your home, this is the best price of the year.

Advertisement

I’m mostly posting it because I bought two of them for like $6 more each last week, and I’m a little salty about it.


Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzels Variety Pack, 36 Individual Snack Bags | $8 | Amazon | Clip 30% Off Coupon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

In the pantheon of tasty treats, Snyder’s Honey Mustard and Onion Pieces must be near the top. And right now, you can get it and three other flavors in 36 individual packs for a low $8 after you clip the coupon.

Advertisement

If my math is right, each bag will cost you less than a $0.25 which is a tremendous value. And if you’re a parent, it’s never too early to stock up on snacks, amirite?


ZWILLING J.A. Henckels Steak Knife Set | $40 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Right now, you can save big on this ZWILLING J.A. Henckels Steak Knife Set. The set includes 8 steak knives and a wooden box to store them in. Normally selling for $80, this current price is a bargain and $10 off the lowest price we’ve ever seen.

Men’s, Women’s, Kids’ The North Face Flash Sales | Nordstrom Rack
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

It may not feel like it, but the cold weather is fast approaching. Be ready when it arrives by stocking up on gear from The North Face for men, women, and kids. Loads of jackets, gloves, hats, and more are up for grabs for much less than usual at Nordstrom Rack. Come late fall, you’ll be glad you shopped this mid-summer blowout sale.


Sonny: The Portable Bidet
GIF: Indiegogo

If there is one thing I’ve learned as a bidet convert, it’s that once you go bidet, every non-washing toilet experience is horrible.

Advertisement

Sonny—the first portable bidet—can alleviate the dread of taking the Browns to the Super Bowl in a public restroom.

Here’s how it works: Sonny holds up to 100ml of water in its tank, which allows you to spray your nether regions for 25-40 seconds, depending on the pressure setting. It generates that pressure with a rechargeable battery, which can last up to three weeks on a single charge, so you won’t have to charge this thing on your desk at work too often (unless you really want to).

Better still, it comes in a beautifully designed package, which means no strange looks when you take it to the loo, and no installation necessary, unlike an integrated bidet.

In addition to the feeling of cleanliness that comes with the use of a bidet, this tool will let you use less toilet paper, which is good for your budget, good for the environment, and good for your b-hole if you work for a penny-pinching boss who stocks the office bathroom with single ply.

Sonny is currently available for pre-order at Indiegogo for the introductory rate of $98 (slated to retail for $140) and will ship in December.


30% Off Palettes | Stila Cosmetics
Image: Stila Cosmetics

One eyeshadow is good, but many eyeshadows are better—that’s where palettes come in. And right now, nine palettes from Stila Cosmetics are a steal at 30% off. Save big on pretty neutral-toned and ultra-saturated shadows, in addition to eyeshadow and illuminator duos and trios and an all-in-one color correcting set. This sale will only last for one day though, so pick out your perfect palette match before these prices are gone.


Cubii Jr. Under-Desk Elliptical (Purple, Royal Blue, and Turquoise) | $185 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

If you don’t have time to go to the gym every day, you can still get in some light cardio at the office with this under-desk elliptical machine. The Cubii Jr. is listed at $185 on Amazon today, the best price ever on a non-refurb, and unlike similar products we’ve posted in the past, this one tracks calories burned, time, stride, and distance. Plus, this lower profile machine is built so you won’t bump your knees on your desk while you pedal.

This sale will only last until the end of the day or until the product sells out, so don’t let this deal run away from you.

Logitech makes some of the best gaming mice around, and right now you can pick up the Powerplay-ready Logitech G903 for a low $70. This wireless mouse offers lag-free performance, tons of customization options in an ambidextrous package.

Advertisement

Sold separately is the $100 Powerplay mousepad which will charge the mouse as it works without having to plug in. It’s cool—but not absolutely necessary. If you want pro-level performance in a wireless mouse, look no further. This is half off its regular price, and $5 off the best price we’ve ever seen.


<Whispers> It’s okay to play Super Smash Bros. with any controller you want.

But that said, I understand the appeal of the old GameCube controller design, and you can snag an extra from PDP for just $19-$20 today, in several different Nintendo character-themed designs.

Advertisement

These controllers are wired (via USB, not Nintendo’s proprietary connector), but they come with swappable C-sticks, so you can remove the classic yellow nub, and replace it with a stick that’s the same size as the left stick for easier smash moves.


The Banner Saga Bonus Edition Trilogy (Nintendo Switch) | $20 | Amazon

Right now, you can pick up The Banner Saga Bonus Edition Trilogy for just $20 on the Nintendo Switch. Normally priced at $30, it’s marked down to $10. PS4 or Xbox One owners can pick up the same trilogy for $6 more, which is still a great deal imo.


Azul | $20 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Azul was Board Game Geek’s #1 most played board game last summer, and cracked our readers’ favorite video game list, and you can add it to your own collection for $20 from Amazon. That’s an all-time low price, but you don’t really need much of an excuse to buy this one.

Azul was designed by the world famous, award winning game author Michael Riesling. Azul captures the beautiful aesthetics of Moorish art in a contemporary board game. Players compete as artisans decorating the walls of the royal Palace of Dvora. By carefully drafting the correct Quantity and style of tiles, the most clever of artisans plan ahead to maximize the beauty of their work (not to mention their scores!) while ensuring they wasted no supplies in the process.

Seriously, this game is gorgeous, and just as importantly, it feels great to play.


Captain Toad Treasure Tracker | $30 | Walmart
