TODAY’S BEST TECH DEALS

Dell Alienware 17 R5 17.3" Gaming Laptop, Intel Core i7-8750H and GTX 1070 | $1,300 | Adorama via eBay

Alienware makes some of the best gaming hardware around and this laptop is no exception. This 2018 17R5 laptop uses an Intel Core i7-8750H 2.2GHz, Nvidia GTX 1070 and 16GB of RAM which allows it tackle nearly any game out there right now.

There are a couple drawbacks. It’s screen is only 60hz which isn’t the best for fast-paced competitive gaming and it’s a 10 lb. machine, which makes lugging it around an absolute chore. But if you’re looking for a machine to power an external display and be portable, this is the one.

Of course $1,300 is still a big investment, but for what you’re getting it’s a steal. Oh, and did I mention, it glows in so many places?


iPad 32GB | $280 | Amazon
iPad 128GB | $355 | Amazon

Unless you really need the iPad Pro (and you almost definitely do not), the standard, vanilla 2018 iPad is a terrific tablet for both consuming and creating media. It even works with the Apple Pencil, the first non-Pro iPad to do so.

While we saw some better deals on these around Black Friday (if you were quick enough to snag them), $280 for 32GB and $355 for 128GB are still terrific prices. If you ask me, it’s worth buying one of these for the express purpose of playing Civilization VI on the go.


GoPro HERO7 Black | $349 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If only the best will do when it comes to capturing all of your daring adventures, the tricked out GoPro HERO7 Black is down to $349 today, which is actually cheaper than Black Friday.

Is that a lot of money? Yes. Does this camera have everything but the kitchen sink? Also yes. We’re talking 4K/60 recording, best-in-class stabilization, live streaming, voice control, and a waterproof body that doesn’t require a separate housing.


And lo, Tile decreed you can replace your own batteries now, and there was much rejoicing. If you’ve been waiting on a good deal for the new Tiles with replaceable batteries, we find some good deals buried in the couch cushions.

If you just want to dip your toes in the water, you can get a single Tile Mate for $20, or $5 less than usual. The four-pack for $50 is a considerably better deal though, if you have enough uses for them (drop your suggestions in the comments!). You can also get a four pack that includes two Mates and two Tile Slims for $50, but just note that the Tile Slims don’t have replaceable batteries.


Kindle Paperwhite (2018) | $100 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Basically every device Amazon makes was on sale for Black Friday, with one glaring exception: The new, waterproof, Bluetooth-equipped Kindle Paperwhite. So if you were holding out on a deal for all your pool and bathtub reading needs, your patience has been rewarded today with a $30 discount. We saw it for $90 briefly last month, but if you’re hunting for a good Valentine’s Day gift, this is still a solid deal.


It’s time to ditch your old spinning drive for this fast $18 solid state drive from Kingston. This particular 2.5-inch model is currently marked down to an all-time low, no coupons or codes necessary.

Full disclosure, 120GB of storage probably isn’t enough to house a full-fledged operating system and all of your personal files. But if your computer has multiple drive slots or you just want to soup-up your mom’s web browsing machine, this is an awesome investment.

And even if you already have an SSD-powered PC, you can build reliable, fast external drive for cheap.


Anker Gold Box | Amazon

Anker’s cornered the market on excellent charging gear at affordable prices, and today only, several of the company’s best products are way cheaper than usual thanks to an Amazon Gold Box deal.

Have any gadgets that take advantage of USB-C Power Delivery charging speeds? There’s a wall charger and a car charger here for you. There’s also a USB-C data hub for your laptop included.

Anker made its name with battery packs, and both a 10,000mAh and 26,800mAh are included in the deal.

As we’ve said, you should own an extra USB car charger just for travel, and a couple of them are on sale here, including one that functions as an in-car Echo Dot, and another that can change colors to perfectly match your car’s ambient LED lighting.

And it wouldn’t be an Anker sale without charging cables. Lightning, USB-C, and MicroUSB are all represented, in addition to a Qi charger that can power any compatible phone.

Just remember that all of these deals expire at the end of the day.

TODAY’S BEST HOME DEALS

Folgers Classic Roast Coffee, 30.5 Oz | $6 | Office Depot
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Hipsters, avert your eyes! There’s a really good sale on a 30.5 oz. tub of Folgers Classic Roast Coffee.

Our readers chose Folgers as their favorite cold brew coffee in a recent Co-Op for good reason. As one afficianado put it, “Folgers. Its good. Its cheap, and we’re talking about cold brew. You literally can’t mess it up.” At $6, this tub can make a crazy amount of coffee, and it’s cheaper than anywhere else we’ve seen.


The Sub Mini Flashlight | Kickstarter
Photo: Kickstarter

The folks behind the world’s smallest multitool are back with an equally lilliputian flashlight.

The Sub is about the same length as a quarter, and puts out 30 lumens with a twist of the included keyring. It’s not nearly as bright as my iPhone’s flashlight, but for only $19, it would certainly justify its price tag (and its space on your keychain) if you didn’t have your phone handy when you need a light, or if your battery was dead.

It’s also completely waterproof and fireproof, and tough enough to withstand being run over by a car. Mostly though, it’s cool looking and inexpensive and useful, which is more than enough reason to check it out before its Kickstarter campaign wraps up.


Eufy RoboVac Refurbishment Kit | $22 | Amazon | Promo code EUFY2909
Eufy RoboVac 12 | $200 | Amazon | Promo code EUFYRVC2
Eufy RoboVac 11s | $180 | Amazon | White with no promo code, black with code KJT21081

I know for a fact that a lot of you have bought Anker’s Eufy RoboVacs. So if your brushes and filters are starting to look a little worn out, you can save $8 on the official refurbishment kit today with promo code EUFY2909. Just note that it’s only compatible with the RoboVac 11S and newer models.

Don’t have a RoboVac yet? The new RoboVac 12 is on sale for just $200 right now with promo code EUFYRVC2, or opt for the slightly less powerful RoboVac 11s for $180. That price is valid on the white model without a code, or the black model with our exclusive promo code KJT21081.


Laundry Essentials Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Make Jolie Kerr proud and stock up on laundry essentials with today’s Gold Box. Choose from over a dozen flavors of Tide Pods, Oxi Clean, Seventh Generation, and Woolite products.

Be on the lookout for clip-on coupons on these products to save even more. Just note that this is a Gold Box, so these prices will only stick around for a day.


6-Night All Inclusive Los Cabos Vacation Packages | $829+ | Apple Vacations

If you experienced last week’s polar vortex and were like, “nah, I’ve had enough of this,” it might be time to treat yourself to a trip to Los Cabos.

Apple Vacations is currently offering six-night all inclusive trips starting at just $829 right now, including flights, your hotel, and all of your food and drinks. The deal is valid for travel Feb. 3-10 or Feb. 24-March 3, so it’s a great excuse to escape the tail end of winter.

Just note that the $829 price is based on flights from Chicago, but you can select almost any major U.S. airport as your departure city. In fact, I saw an $810 deal from Raleigh, NC, so your price could be even lower.


DeskCycle Under-Desk Exercise Bike | $119 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Ideally, you get at least a little bit of exercise every day, but...life, responsibilities, Splatoon 2 - there are only so many hours in a day, a lot can get in the way.

But with an under-desk exercise bike, you can do a little low-impact pedaling while you fill out your expense reports. You get to choose from eight different resistance levels, and a screen on the bike will let you know how far you’ve gone, and how many calories you’ve burned each day.

$119 is about $25 less than usual, but that deal is only available today, or until sold out.


Everything Bedroom Sale | Wayfair

Is the key to a good night’s sleep is to surround yourself with good-yet-inexpensive bedroom furniture? I have no idea, but it can’t hurt, right? Tuck yourself into a new bed, mattress, comforter, nightstand, and other bedroom essentials up to 70% off thanks to Wayfair’s Everything Bedroom Sale, and have sweet dreams of great deals.

TODAY’S BEST LIFESTYLE DEALS

Men’s and Women’s Ultra Light Down Vests and Jackets | Uniqlo
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

An extra layer of down never hurt anyone in winter. Pump up your puffer collection today with these deals on Uniqlo’s famous Ultra Light Down. Men’s and women’s jackets are down to $60 (though the red, teal, and camel colors for guys, and blue, pink, and olive colors for ladies are on sale for $40). Meanwhile, men’s vests are on sale for as low as $20, while women’s vests are down to $30 in select colors.

As the name suggests, this isn’t the kind of material that keeps you warm by weighing you down; these styles are thin enough to be worn as either an inner or outer layer, and snuggly to the point where you’ll know you have it on, but not heavy enough to be a nuisance. In fact, it’s one of our favorite affordable down jackets out there. Pretty much all the jackets and vests are $10 off, so go to town on this down deal before it’s done.


Durex 144 Condom Bowl | $23 | Amazon | Clip the 32% coupon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Ever wonder where your college’s health clinic got those fishbowls full of condoms from? Turns out, probably Amazon. Get your own bowl of 144 assorted Durexes for just $23 today after clipping the 32% coupon. Even if you don’t want to keep a bowl of prophylactics out on display in your home, you could just dump them into a drawer, because this is a great per-condom price.


Men’s and Women’s Sperry Flash Sale | Nordstrom Rack
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

The weather’s gone from unbelievably cold to unseasonably warm for most of the country, so there’s never been a better time to shop this Sperry sale for men and women at Nordstrom Rack. Sperry makes plenty of winter-y boots and styles for spring so you’ll be prepared no matter what this wacky weather comes up with next.


Extra 30% Off Men’s, Women’s, and Kid’s Clearance | Clarks
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

At the intersection of “cute” and “comfortable,” you will find Clarks. And right now, the footwear brand is taking up to 60% off clearance items for men, women, and kids. Treat your feet to new boots, loafers, slip-ons, and more from this shoo-in of a sale before it’s over.


Urban Decay Naked Palette | $27 | Ulta
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

If you’ve somehow managed to survive this long without an Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palette in your makeup arsenal, first of all, congratulations, that’s quite a feat. Second, what have you been waiting for?! Could it be, perhaps, a great deal on the original cult favorite? If so, you’re in luck; Ulta is currently offering up the Naked palette that started it all for just $27 — that’s half off its regular price. Plus, this palette is on track to be discontinued soon, so stock up while you still can.


Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips | $50 | Amazon | Clip the $10 coupon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Here’s a deal you can really sink your teeth into: Bring home a Crest Whitestrips Kit containing 22 treatments for just $40 when you apply the $10 coupon on Amazon — that’s about $1.82 per treatment. Included among the regular treatments is one set of 1-Hour Express strips for teeth whitening emergencies, I guess, but overall, it’s a solid price to pay for a more luminous grin.


Clarisonic Mia Smart | $179 | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Now that your phone and your home are all smart, it’s apparently time to up the intelligence of your facial cleansing brush. The Clarisonic Mia Smart allows users to connect the brush to a smartphone app, which can customize preset routines on the device, in addition to the deep pore cleansing and exfoliating you’ve come to expect from the brand.

Now, do you need your facial cleansing brush to be bluetooth enabled? Nope. But it is a cool extra feature for those are who are looking to really maximize their cleansing routine. And now, all that cool skincare tech is on sale for $179. Available in three colors, the brush also comes with a charging stand, and it’s waterproof, so feel free to scrub away while you’re in the shower or bathtub. And it’s compatible with any Clarisonic brush head, so you can really go all out.


25% Off Full-Priced Styles | Lands’ End | Use promo code COZY and pin 8924
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Winter demands utility over style; after all, not freezing to death usually take precedence over looking good. But Lands’ End makes the kind of winter stuff that a preppier, more put-together you would wear, like cozy flannels and wool coats, as opposed to the ratty sweaters and sweatsuits you often resort to this time of year. Now, that classic cold-weather look is more attainable than ever with 25% off full-priced styles from the retailer, today only. Just use promo code COZY, along with pin 8924, and outfit yourself and your entire family in the stylish winter wardrobe you all deserve.

TODAY’S BEST MEDIA DEALS 

$100 iTunes Gift Card | $85 | eBay
Graphic: Shep McAllister

iTunes gift card discounts are noticeably less common than they used to be, so if you need more credit for apps, music, movies, iCloud storage, or anything else, buy a $100 gift card from eBay for 15% off, while supplies last.

today’s best GAMING deals

CORSAIR HS70 Wireless Gaming Headset | $60 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

It’s rare to see an affordable gaming headset to be also be wireless, but this Corsair HS70 is just that. At $60, this is the lowest price we’ve seen for this particular model.

And while it lacks the RGB lighting, it sounds good, is 7.1 surround ready, features easy setup, and pretty darn comfortable. On the downside, it’s not compatible with the Xbox One.


Dungeons & Dragons Starter Set | $12 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Dungeons & Dragons is, dare I say it, cool now? Or at the very least, trendy. If you’re curious to try it out for yourself, but don’t know how to get started, this starter set is down to $10 on Amazon, a new all-time low.

io9 reviewed this book several years ago, and gave it a great recommendation. It comes with five ready-to-play characters, six dice, and adventure book, a rulebook, and a character sheet, so you can stop worrying, and start having fun.


Sony PlayStation Classic | $52 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

The PlayStation Classic is missing a lot of critical games, but it seems like it’s going to be relatively straightforward to add some yourself. And even if you don’t bother hacking it, there’s still plenty worthwhile pre-loaded games to keep you entertained, even if there’s no Crash Bandicoot or Tomb Raider or Tony Hawk.

$100 is a lot to ask, but Amazon just discounted the PlayStation Classic to $52, which is a lot more palatable.
