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?
Note: The code is only valid on the red model.
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.
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.
Twelve South has long been a favorite design shop for Mac nerds, and their aluminum BookArc is $10 less than usual on Amazon today. If you use your MacBook in clamshell mode, this is one of the most stylish ways to stand it up and reclaim some precious desk space. Plus, it’s compatible with any Apple laptop produced in 2012 or later.
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. You can save a whopping $22 today with promo code ANKER599, which brings this down to an all-time low $34.
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.
Whether you’re an iPhone owner who finally gets to enjoy wireless charging, or you’ve had it for years with your Android devices, this discounted Qi stand will charge and prop up your device. And with two charging coils built in, it’ll even work when you lay down your phone in landscape mode.
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.
NordVPN has long been one of the most popular and reliable VPN providers out there, and if you sign up for a one-year membership, promo code VIP70 will drop your annual price from $69 to $48. If you’re sure you want to commit, use this link to get a special two year plan for $79 with code 2YSpecial2017, or this link to get three years for $99 with code 3ydeal. Lifehacker has recommended Nord in some previous guides, but if you have any firsthand experience with the service, sound off in the comments!

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.
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.
Everything’s better with lasers, including tape measures. This laser distance measure takes instant distance readings of up to 197', and includes several built-in area calculation functions, in case you’re a little rusty on your middle school geometry. Get it for $25 today with promo code RRL9AWVW.
Toss this roadside emergency kit in your trunk and hope you never have to use it. It comes with a first aid kit and a bunch of other things you might need like glow sticks, rope, jumper cables, and a rain poncho, so you can be prepared for just about anything. Today, it’s selling for just $24, plus $5 for shipping totals $29.
Put up all your mops, brooms, and dusters on this $10 wall mount (with code M3AS4UGI). It will likely be your most adult purchase of the day.
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.
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.
Snickers makes a special 1-pound candy bar that’s designed for slicing and sharing, but we won’t tell anyone if you eat the entire thing yourself. Save $2 by clipping the coupon on the page. Amazon even ships it with reusable cool-packs to keep it from melting en route, not that most of the country would need them right now.
The humble and inexpensive cast iron skillet is one of most important pieces of cooking gear you can own, and Lodge’s highly-rated 10” model is back down to $13 on Amazon. If you don’t own one, you shouldn’t hesitate.
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.
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.
Check out our Office Gear Guide for more upgrades and recommendations.
We’re getting close to the point where Bluetooth-enabled smart bathroom scales cost about the same as their “dumb” brethren. This one’s $23 with code D7DQA4SJ, and its app even ties into Apple HealthKit, so you can keep all of your health data in one place.
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.
Gone are the days where you started sweating just getting dressed in the moring (hopefully). It’s time to deal with single digit weather. Columbia is giving you 35% off select styles, no code needed, during their Winter Sale. Choose from over 1,000 styles for everyone. Pick up layering pieces, boots, t-shirts, and outerwear that’s perfect for the fluctuating temperatures, for a lot less than normal.
And, if you go ham and spend over $125, you’ll get a $30 gift card.
Benefit Cosmetics is by far one of my favorite makeup brands. The products are high-quality and the packaging is one-of-a-kind. I know I’ll be stocking up during their Winter Sale, with up to 60% off some really awesome, including their cult-favorite They’re Real mascara, Hoola Bronzer, and more. Plus, once you hit $35 (which won’t be too hard), use the code SALE35 and get free shipping.
