Anker’s premium nylon-wrapped Lighnting cables feel ridiculously nice in the hand, are way more durable than Apple’s first party cable, and come with a lifetime warranty, so what’s not to love? Just use promo code ANKER532 on any color or either size to save on a two-pack.


The trusty Brother HL2380DW laser printer has long been a hit with our readers, but it was recently replaced by the HL2395DW, and the new model is on sale for its best price ever.

Compared to the 2380, the new one is slightly faster (36 ppm vs. 32), uses less electricity, and has NFC for direct printing from compatible Android phones. All the basics that have made Brother printers a hit are still there too, including duplex printing, AirPrint and Google Cloud Print support, relatively inexpensive and long lasting toner, and a complete lack of the carriage jams and destroyed paper you’ve come to expect from inkjet printers.

If you aren’t satisfied with your current printer (which is a pretty safe bet if it’s not a Brother), this is a great buy at $100.


Silicon Power 128GB MicroSD Card | $21 | Amazon

Need more storage space for your action cam, dash cam, tablet, or Nintendo Switch? These 64GB and 128GB cards from Silicon Power are incredibly affordable right now, and among the best deals we’ve ever seen on cards from reliable manufacturers.


Polk Audio Command Sound Bar with hands-free Amazon Alexa | $249 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Polk Audio’s new Command sound bar looks like a speaker that swallowed an Echo Dot, but look past the built-in Alexa support, and you’ll simply find really good audio quality. It even includes a wireless subwoofer.

Normally $300, it’s marked down to $249 today, so this is a great chance to upgrade your TV’s audio before your big scary movie marathon.


BeatsX Wireless Headphones | $75 | AT&T
Graphic: Shep McAllister

While AirPods offer the most seamless headphone experience for iPhone owners, BeatsX are probably a close second, and you can get a pair for $75 from AT&T, in white only. That’s the best price we’ve ever seen by about $20, and half what they cost when they first came out.

From Gizmodo:

“The Beats X are the third product from Beats (and the fourth from all of Apple) to use the new W1 Bluetooth chipset. This Apple-designed chipset should allow for better battery life. It also makes pairing with an Apple device a total snap—as long as your iPhone runs iOS 10.1 or higher. All I had to do to pair was turn the Beats X and bring them near my phone. A ‘Connect’ button instantly popped up and I was off—music ready to be heard wirelessly.”


Aukey 60W USB-C PD Desktop Charger With Two USB-A Ports | $36 | Amazon | Promo code AUKEY12A
Photo: Amazon

By pairing a couple of standard USB chargers with a super-powerful 60W USB-C Power Delivery port, Aukey built one of the most practical and future-proof desktop charging hubs you can buy. Get it for $36 today with promo code AUKEY12A.


Whether you’re just starting your Philips Hue collection, replacing your last few dumb bulbs, or want to graduate to smart accent lights and light strips, there’s a Philips Hue deal available for you today.


Anker 8-in-1 USB 3.0 Portable Card Reader | $7 | Amazon | Promo code ANKERC67
Photo: Anker

Most laptops have an SD card slot, but microSD slots are far less common, even as the smaller cards have replaced their larger brethren for the majority of applications. Sure, those microSD cards come with an adapter, but if you’re anything like me, you lost that thing within about 15 seconds. This Anker USB card reader though can read both types of cards, and it’s only $7 today with promo code ANKERC67.


VAVA USB-C Connectivity Hub (Space Gray) | $35 | Amazon | Promo code 77L3YR33.

Turns out, having a laptop with only USB-C ports means you need to carry a dongle with you from time to time. Who knew? Luckily, these $35 hubs (with promo code 77L3YR33) from VAVA are designed to perfectly match MacBook, and turn one USB-C port into an ethernet port, an SD card reader, an HDMI output, and three USB 3.0 ports. There’s even pass-through USB-C charging, so you’re not even really using up one of your precious ports.


While it doesn’t have the best picture quality out there, it’s tough to complain about a 65" 4K TV for $550, a 55" for $320, or a 49" model for $250. Both include HDR, though with a distinct lack of specs on the page, I’m going to assume that’s not Dolby Vision. And while they doesn’t have apps onboard—pretty typical at this price level—they do have Chromecast built in, so you can stream video easily from your phone, which is very rare at this price.


Private Internet Access Exclusive Deals

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.

Halloween Candy Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Amazon’s Halloween candy Gold Box is includes great deals on a ton of different candies, which is perfect if you already bought a bag from the store for Halloween, but need a second one to eat yourself.

Advertisement

The bulk of the Gold Box is filled with chocolate candy of various types, but they also have a five pound bag of Jolly Ranchers for $8.

This candy might sell out quickly, so think like trick-or-treater - grab a handful and run.


Costa Farms Succulent Gold Box | Amazon

If you like to fill the void in your life with house plants, but don’t have a ton of space, sunlight, or gardening knowledge, succulents are the low-maintenance green things of your dreams. Today only, a bunch of different options from Costa Farms are on sale on Amazon, starting at just $13 for a couple of handsome aloe plants, ranging up to an 18-plant variety pack for a perfectly reasonable $36. Click here to see all of the plants.


Refurb Breville Barista Express Espresso Machine | $360 | Woot
Graphic: Erica Offutt

Spending $360 on a espresso machine might sound indulgent, but when you add up all the money you spend at coffee shops, buying this Breville Barista Express might save you money over time.

The Barista Express includes a built-in grinder, and dispenses the perfect amount for each shot, making it pretty much idiot proof. The $360 price tag is about as cheap as this machine is going get, as long as you don’t mind a refurb. So, if you’ve eyeing an espresso machine for a while, today is a good day to pull the trigger.


Fiskars X7 Hatchet 14 Inch | $21 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

I bet you didn’t come here expecting to see a hatchet deal, but here we are. This one from Fiskars has a 4.6 star review average from over 1,700 Amazon customers, and $21 is about $4 less than usual.


Extra bedding and off-season clothes can eat up a lot of room in your closet. Pack it all up in this $13 underbed storage bag (with code G7NHSIFU). The zipper closure makes it easier to close when it’s overflowing than a plastic box lid, and it looks a lot more “grown-up” too.


Auto-Vox Wireless Rear-View Camera Kit | $69 | Amazon | Promo code Y3XQSX2Y

You don’t need to buy a new car to get a rear-view camera, you just need $69 (with promo code Y3XQSX2Y).

Advertisement

The camera attaches to your license plate mount, and a cord runs to a wireless transmitter that you can keep in your trunk. That transmitter then beams the signal to an included 4.3" display that you can stick on your windshield or dashboard, meaning you won’t have to run a wire across the length of your car.


12 Pads Post-It Extreme Notes | $14 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Post-it’s Extreme notes can go a lot of places regular Post-its can’t. They’ll stick to rough surfaces like wood and brick, and somehow, they’re even waterproof. We blasted them with a kitchen sink last year, and the paper never shredded, and the ink never ran.

This pack of 12 pads is down to $14 for the first time ever today, so if you ever think you might need some of these, go ahead and stock up.


Bed Wedge Pillow 1.5 Inch Memory Foam Top | $56 | Amazon

This discounted memory foam wedge pillow can reduce snoring, and Amazon customers who have had surgeries and shoulder injuries say it helped them sleep without pain. That’s all great, and while Amazon’s product description would never say this, it’s also for fuckin’.


Delta 75152 Shower Head | $17 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

The shower head that came preinstalled in your home or apartment is probably terrible, but if you don’t have the cash to upgrade it to a Delta In2ition, the Delta 75152 is a stunningly good option for just $17. That’s not an all-time low, but it is the best price we’ve seen since last year’s holiday season.

Advertisement

Aside from a single switch that toggles between 2.5 and 1.85 gallons per minute, this showerhead doesn’t have any notable features to speak of. But I can tell you from years of experience that its water coverage and ability to amplify low water pressure are incredible. Its four valves use Delta’s H2Okinetic system to agitate the water and create a full, perfectly dispersed wall of water, rather than four individual streams. It’s a difficult sensation to describe, but I absolutely recommend you try it for yourself. And why wouldn’t you at this price?


Three Bottles of Wine + Free Shipping | $15 | Firstleaf | Promo code Kinja. New members only
Photo: Zachariah Hagy (( ( Unsplash)

Firstleaf is an online wine club that learns your preferences, offers tons of options, and most importantly, saves you money compared to buying from the store. It’s a solid deal any time, but it’s even better for our readers today.

Advertisement

Every new Firstleaf member gets an introductory delivery with three bottles of wine for just $15, plus $5 shipping. Considering that you aren’t locked in and can cancel any time, that’s a bargain. But it gets even better for our readers, as promo code Kinja will waive the $5 shipping charge, for a limited time. That’s three bottles of wine (all of mine had MSRPs over $20) for just $5 each shipped, with no commitment.

You can read more about the service in my review, but if you choose to remain a member (I did), every box thereafter includes six bottles for $80, plus $10 shipping.

Want a Halloween costume that will grab attention and make you an Instagram hit, while requiring next to no effort? These emoji masks are the answer. They even light up or flash with the power of a 9V battery. Normally $45 around the web, you can pick your favorite emoji (where is smirk?!) for $40, today only on Amazon.

Cole Haan Autumn Savings

Cole Haan is definitely a brand that can make you think twice on account of the price. So when a sale like their Autumn Savings takes place, it’s the perfect time to act. There’s hundreds of men’s and women’s shoes marked down, from oxfords and sneakers to loafers and heels (there’s some accessories in there too), you’ll even find a 2.ZERØGRAND in there. You can save up to 70% on some incredibly well-made shoes that will last for years.


Preorder Air Pack | Indiegogo
GIF: Indiegogo

You probably have a day pack in your closet for short hikes, trips to the pool, and outdoor activities like music festivals, and you probably hate using it. Sure, it’s nice to have something lighter than a backpack, but that lightness usually comes at the expense of features that actually make a bag tolerable to carry, like padded shoulder straps, and structure.

Advertisement

Enter Air Pack, a water-resistant CORDURA day pack with an inflatable back cushion and straps. Deflated, it weighs almost nothing and can roll up really small. But with a few puffs of air, Air Pack will cushion your back from all the spiky contents inside the bag, and take some strain off your shoulders too. A variety of straps and buckles add extra support, and let you adjust the Air Pack’s positioning just like a “real” backpack, but without the bulk.

Would you want to pack for a three day camping trip in the Air Pack? No. But it’s a really convenient and comfortable way to carry a couple water bottles and a change of clothes around for a few hours. Preorder it for $79 (or a more waterproof version for $95) on Indiegogo, with shipping expected in February.


BalanceFrom 32 Pound Dumbbell Set with Rack | $24 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

They aren’t as space-saving, flexible, or heavy as the reader favorite Bowflex SelectTechs, but these small BalaceFrom dumbbells are great for low intensity workouts when you don’t have the time or the inclination to schlep to the gym. At an all-time low $24, they’re a great value considering you get a combine 32 pounds in the set.


30% Off Aveeno Products | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

As the air gets cooler, your skin gets drier. Luckily, Amazon’s taking an extra 30% off a bunch of different moisturizing Aveeno products. Lotions, body washes, cleansing pads, baby wipes, and sunscreen are included, just for starters. Just note that you won’t see the 30% coupon applied until you get to checkout.

Have any products you particularly recommend? Drop them in the comments!


Jurassic World Adult T-Rex Inflatable Costume | $44 | Amazon

This inflatable Jurassic World T-Rex costume should be a hit at your Halloween party, though I don’t recommend wearing it on the beach during a hurricane like these extremely smart people. Reach into your wallet with those very short arms and buy it from Amazon today for an all-time low $44.


Merrell Private Sale | Merrell | Some products an extra 40% off with code MERRELLFIRST40. Others 20% off with code SAVE20SALE
Graphic: Merrell

Merrell is best known for quality hiking footwear, and you can get a piece of that for less. Right now, they’re running a Private Sale with a bunch styles of footwear for men and women, just in time for the perfect fall hiking weather. Some items are an extra 40% off as well with promo code MERRELLFIRST40, but if that doesn’t work, try SAVE20SALE for 20% off.

Some styles have a couple colors to choose from as well, and you’ll also find some outerwear thrown in for good measure.


Quick thought experiment: A bird has pooped on you outside a restaurant, and a kind bystander has offered you a paper napkin to clean yourself off. Do you use the napkin and go about your day, or do you go inside and wash off with running water in the bathroom?

Advertisement

That’s the elevator pitch for bidets, and it’s a persuasive one. Of course you should clean your undercarriage with water, it’s pure savagery that most of us don’t. And installing one is a lot easier and cheaper than you might think. Today on Amazon, you can score deals on a pair of bidets from Kohler, including an electric one with a built-in water heater, which really comes in handy in the winter when the pipes run cold.


I could dance around what makes this underwear unique, but it’s easier to just say it: It has a separate compartment for your penis to keep it away from your balls. It sounds a little ridiculous, but when it’s warm out, it can certainly keep you out of some, uh, sticky situations. Try out a three-pack of the ultra-soft bamboo version for $25, or two pairs made from athletic fast-dry material for $22.


Columbus Day Clearance | Nordstrom Rack
Graphic: Shep McAllister

It’s not technically a Clear the Rack sale, but it might as well be. Nordstrom Rack just added a ton of new sale styles to their clearance section for Columbus Day weekend, with basically all of your favorite brands represented. Nearly 20,000 items are available right now, but that’s sure to shrink as the good stuff sells out, so get in there!

Just pick your gender on the sidebar, then use all the dropdowns and other organization tools to sort through the deluge.


Blanc Flare Heated Smart Shirt | Kickstarter
Photo: Kickstarter

What if your clothes could do more during the winter than just keeping body hit in. What if they actually generated heat of their own? That’s the promise of Flare, a new smart shirt from Blanc.

Advertisement

Flare is a stretchy, long sleeved shirt/pullover with three integrated carbon fiber heating pads - one on your belly, and two on your back. A zippered pocket features a USB port to power them; just plug in a USB power bank (one is included), and hold down the power button on the bottom of the shirt to fire it up.

About those heating pads. You can definitely tell that there’s something sewn into the fabric, but they’re remarkably thin and flexible. Wearing Flare is like wearing a shirt, not like wearing a tech product. You can even throw it in the washing machine like the rest of your clothes, as long as you take out the power bank first. You are encouraged to air dry it, however.

Unfortunately, Flare won’t be out until the end of the winter, but you still stand to save by preordering it on Kickstarter.

Best Gaming Deals

No Man’s Sky [PS4] | $30 | Amazon
Screenshot: Kotaku

It didn’t make the best first impression, but two years later, No Man’s Sky is really good now! If you still haven’t grabbed a copy, it’s just $30 on Xbox One right now, the best price we’ve seen on the recently-released Xbox version.


HORI Nintendo Switch Battle Pad | $25 | Amazon
PDP Nintendo Switch Fight Pad Pro | $25 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

We’re officially less than two months away from the release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and true Smash aficionados know that there’s no substitute for playing with a GameCube controller.

Advertisement

Nintendo makes its own first party model for $30, but since it uses the GameCube’s original controller connector, you’ll also have to pony up for a USB dongle to plug it in. That’s fine if you want to play with multiple friends and have old GameCube controllers lying around, but it’s overkill if you’ll primarily be playing online.

Luckily, both PDP and HORI just put their own GameCube gamepads up for preorder, and they both include 10' cables that plug directly into your Switch dock’s USB port, no adapter required. Both come in multiple colors with various licensed Nintendo insignia front and center, but each option has one key feature to set it apart.

HORI’s gamepad lets you swap L/R and ZL/ZR if you’d like, and also includes a turbo function that simulates rapid button taps when you hold down on a button. I’m not totally sure how that would help with Smash, and it’s probably considered cheating, but we don’t judge.

PDP’s standout feature is a swappable C-stick design. You can choose from the old school nubby yellow C-stick, or take it off and attach a perfect match for the main stick instead. Neat! But I will say that the shape of the controller—particularly the shoulder buttons—looks less authentically-GameCube than the HORI.

Both come out on December 7 alongside Smash, but you can ensure you get one by preordering.


Preorder Limbo | Indiegogo
GIF: Indiegogo

Clear some room on your desk, because LIMBO is about to be the most impressive desk toy in your entire office.

Advertisement

Limbo looks and feels like a regular spinning top, but a hidden USB-rechargeable motor on the inside uses a small weight and centrifugal force to keep it running for hours at a time. It doesn’t require a special base (though it comes with one for display purposes), and it doesn’t cheat with magnetic levitation. It’s just physics. Start it running when you get to work, go to lunch when it finally topples, and set it spinning again when you get back.

Limbo will retail for $99-$249 (depending on the material) when it comes out early next year, but if you preorder on Indiegogo, you can save a ton.


The Escapists 2 [Switch] | $12 | Amazon
Screenshot: Amazon

The Escapists 2 is an ideal game for the Switch, and getting it for $12 will make you feel like you should get sent to the clink for robbery. You can even play cooperatively with a friend with just a pair of Joy-Con.


Carcassonne | $18 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you like board games like Settlers of Catan and Agricola, you’ll definitely want to give Carcassonne a try. Today’s price is within about a dollar of the lowest Amazon has ever listed, and a great investment for your next game night.


Humble Monthly

Humble Monthly just began a new, and next month’s slate of early access games is one of the best yet. Sign up now to get instant access to Hollow Knight, Hitman Season 1, and 7 Days to Die.
