Anker PowerLine+ Nylon-Wrapped Lightning Cable | $8 | Amazon | Promo code ANKER888 | Red only
Anker PowerLine+ Nylon-Wrapped Lightning Cable | $8 | Amazon | Promo code ANKER888 | Red only

We see deals with some regularity on Anker’s 6' and 10' nylon-wrapped PowerLine+ Lightning cables, but today, you can upgrade your standard 3' cords for just $8 each. The PowerLine+ feels ridiculously nice in the hand, is way more durable than Apple’s first party cable, and comes with an 18 month warranty, so what’s not to love?

Is Amazon’s Fire HD 8 in the same ballpark as, say, an iPad Pro? Of course not. But $50 is an insane price for a tablet with a 1280x800 screen, expandable storage, and a 12 hour battery. If you mostly want a tablet for passive media consumption, or just want one for your kid, this is probably all you need.

You all have bought a ton of Brother monochrome laser printers, and with good reason! But if you really need to be able to print in color, this color laser model has never been cheaper than it is today.

Advertisement

The poetically named Brother MFC9130CW has just about every feature you’d want in a printer, including Wi-Fi, AirPrint and Google Cloud Print support, a flatbed scanner, and even the ability to send faxes. And oh yeah, it can spit out a page just about every three seconds, even if you’re printing in full color.

It feels like just yesterday that buying QHD (2560x1440) displays from Korean eBay sellers or Monoprice for like $350 was an insane deal. Now you can get one from Amazon with Prime shipping for just $200. Sure, it’s not 4K, but it’s enough pixels for nearly everyone, and pretty much every computer out there will be able to drive it without issue.

Anker’s PowerPort line of multi-port USB chargers are our readers’ favorites, and this model is one of the few that includes USB-C Power Delivery, which outputs up to 30W to power devices like the new MacBooks, or even a Nintendo Switch.

It seems like everyone has a podcast these days, and you can get in on the fun, or just enjoy clearer Skype calls, with this popular Blue Snowball iCE mic. $40's a match for the best price Amazon’s offered since 2015, so hit pause on whatever you’re listening to, and go check it out.

If you own an older vehicle, you probably don’t have Bluetooth. Hell, you might not even have an AUX jack. But that doesn’t mean you can’t stream music, podcasts, and phone calls wirelessly to your stereo.

Just plug this $13 transmitter (with code LTF8BHJS) into your car’s power outlet (it has two built-in USB ports so you can still charge your phone), find an empty radio station, connect your phone over Bluetooth, and stream away.

The Kindle Paperwhite is the best e-reader for almost everyone, and at $80 for a refurb, it’s never been cheaper than it is today. And don’t worry, you’ll still get the same 1-year warranty you’d get if you bought it new.

Amazon’s Fire TV Stick is a great little streaming dongle with all of the power of Alexa at its disposal, and you can save $10 on yours by buying a certified refurb today on Amazon. They don’t always sell refurbs of this thing, but when they do, they’re usually priced at $35, so you’re doubling your savings today.

If you don’t have cable, but don’t want to miss the Blake Bortles vs. Case Keenum Super Bowl, you can watch it in HD with this $14 amplified antenna.

If you’ve tried an unamplified HDTV antenna (like the standard Mohu Leaf), but can’t quite pull in every channel you want, this leaf-style model includes a USB-powered amp that should add a few miles of range. Promo code 3IX5Y4GD brings it down to just $14, which is one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on an amplified antenna.

The Chase Freedom is a no-fee, cash back credit card that pairs exquisitely with the Sapphire Preferred and Sapphire Reserve, and its current 5% bonus for mobile wallet usage is even better right now if you shop at Best Buy.

From now until February 4, you’ll get 10% cash back when you check at at a physical Best Buy store using the Chase Pay app and your Freedom Card (up to $300 in purchases). That’s basically a 10% discount on everything Best Buy sells, and as we’ve mentioned before, you can transfer those points to a Sapphire account to get even more value. Just as a baseline, the 3,000 points you earn from spending $300 at Best Buy would be worth $45 in direct travel bookings if you have a Sapphire Reserve, or $37.50 if you have the Preferred.

VPNs are in the news these days, and with good reason. So if you’re curious to sign up and start protecting your browsing history and personal data (or, you know, getting around websites’ geoblocks), NordVPN charges less per month than a typical trip to Starbucks.

Contigo’s Autoseal West Loop travel mugs are a longtime reader favorite, but the similar SnapSeal Byron is marked down to one of the best prices we’ve seen today on Amazon.

Advertisement

You get to choose from either the 20 oz. or 24 oz. model for this deal. Usually, when we post a deal on Contigo mugs, it’s for the West Loop model, but the Byron’s a little bit different. Unlike the West Loop, the Byron’s lid doesn’t open and close automatically, though many reviewers say it’s easier to clean. The Byron also includes a rubberized non-slip sleeve, which is a nice touch, especially at these prices.

Valentine’s Day is 3 weeks away, which means you have another excuse (not that you needed one) to bring large amounts of candy to the office or keep at your house. These Dove chocolate hearts are 15% off their already low prices. Just to note, the variety bag is an add-on item, and the discounts won’t show up until checkout.

While they might not conform to the classic look of our favorite chef’s knives , this Cuisinart knife set is anything but dull (get it?). You can own the whole collection today for just $16, one of the best prices we’ve seen.

Don’t let the colors fool you, these knives are stainless steel, and extremely sharp. The set has a 4.6 star average on nearly 4,000 reviews, and while the colors might not seem like your thing, they do help you keep track and avoid cross-contaminating food while you use them.

These Furminator de-shedding brushes boast an impressive 4.6-star rating with over 11,000 reviews, and they’re just $10 today. With both long hair and short hair options, these medium-sized brushes have “FURejector buttons” (their word, not mine), which allow you to rake off the captured hair all at once. Today’s prices are the best we’ve seen, so you have no excuses.

Tired of using your phone as an alarm clock? This $27 atomic clock shows you a bunch of important information, like temperature, date, etc, without all the extra distraction your phone can provide. This normally costs $35, but is down to $27 today.

Spending $460 on an espresso machine might seem indulgent. Hell, it is indulgent. But think of how much Starbucks charges for espresso, and you can start to see why it could make sense. This deal is more than $100 less than the current Amazon price, and roughly a match for the best deal we’ve seen.

You’ve heard of Automatic’s smart driving assistant, but if $130 is too rich for your blood, this OBD2 dongle costs over 90% less, connects to any iPhone or Android device over Wi-Fi, and can fulfill many of the same functions using various third party apps.

The most obvious use case here is understanding and clearing check engine codes, but these things give you access to pretty much all of the sensor data in your vehicle, at a much more granular level than you’d get from all of the symbols in your instrument cluster.

Garment bags are the perfect solution for keeping fancy clothing safe while traveling, but I highly recommend storing those suits and dresses in one of these even in a closet. For $8, you can grab a 3-piece garment bag set, plus a shoe bag, with the code FKDVQ5KX.

This soap dispenser is made by Simplehuman, the company that makes our readers’ favorite trash cans, the only paper towel holders that don’t suck, next level shower caddies, and a bunch of other beautiful and functional pieces for your home. The caveat is that their products are normally pretty expensive and very rarely do they put anything on sale.

But, today they’re discounting this touch-free soap dispenser, which, among other special features, has a no-drip valve, so you don’t have to deal the gross crusty soap thats gets stuck to most other pumps. It normally sells for $40, but is just $35 today, which yes, is still maybe a little pricey for a soap dispenser, but it’s worth it if you’re in the market for an upgrade.

Weighted Blanket | $135 | Amazon | Promo code WE66O98C

Update: The $140 blanket sold out, but here’s a larger 15 pound blanket for even less. Just be sure to use promo code WE66O98C at checkout to get the deal.

It’s the winter, so you’re probably feeling anxious and tired, a general malaise if you will. If you need a break from all the craziness and just can’t get your brain to turn off for one second, you’re gonna want to check out a weighted blanket. This one is down to $140 once you clip the $10 off coupon, which is an all-time low. Just trust me on this one.

Update: These are even cheaper today, just $29.

Unlike those disposable hand warming packets, this $35 Zippo hand warmer will keep your hands toasty for six hours, then can be charged with the included USB cord, and reused over and over again. Plus, you can use it year ‘round to charge your phone, as it doubles as a 5200 mAh USB battery pack. Today’s price is the lowest it’s ever been, so pick this up before it cools down.

Amazon’s newest sample box is packed with single serve tea and coffee drinks - at least six of them, for $10. That might not sound like a tremendous deal on its face, but it also comes with a $10 Amazon credit to spend on full-sized orders of select beverages (see them all here), so assuming you spend that, it’s like getting the samples for free.

Ka-Bar Tactical Spork | $6 | Amazon

I know this “tactical spork” is designed for camping, but if I owned one, I’d probably use it at home on a regular basis. The best part is undoubtedly the hidden knife that uses the spork handle as a sheath, but the $7 price tag is a close second. Just don’t try to bring it on an airplane.

I bought the FitDesk 2.0 on a whim a couple of years ago, and was surprised both by how viable it was to work at, and how compact it gets when folded up. It fits easily into a closet, or opens up for use while working, gaming, or marathoning Netflix, and is particularly nice out on the balcony.

Today’s price is the best we’ve seen in months, and it doesn’t go on sale often.

If you can’t be bothered to schlep to the gym during the winter, you can still keep in shape at home with this cleverly designed PowerBlock dumbbell set. Each dumbbell adjusts from 3 to 24 pounds in 3-pound increments with just the flick of a selector pin, so it’s basically like a complete weight rack that could almost fit into a shoebox.

Today’s $100 price tag is an all-time low by nearly $20, so you can really flex those savings muscles.

Preorder Nintendo LABO Robot Kit | $80 | Amazon

Nintendo’s weird new LABO kits are up for preorder on Amazon for $80 (Robot Kit) and $70 (Variety Kit), and if you want them on their April 20 launch day, I’d recommend ordering it now. LABO kits are basically just fancy pieces of cardboard, so one would hope that we won’t see Nintendo’s signature supply shortages, but that’s probably just wishful thinking.

The Humble Monthly subscription plan delivers you a selection of new games (to keep!) every month, gives you 10% off everything in the Humble Store, and donates 5% of each month’s proceeds to charity. If you prefer to play your games on PC, it might just be the best deal in gaming.

Next month’s early access game just just went live, and it’s a doozy. You get Civilization VI, plus the Australian and Viking civilization and scenario packs, all for just $12. You could even cancel your account immediately after downloading the games (not that we’d recommend it, for all of the reasons detailed above), and they’d be yours to keep. Needless to say, that’s the best deal we’ve ever seen on the latest Civ game.
