The best VPN deals for April 2020 are here.

A virtual private network (VPN) helps make your more anonymous online by letting you route your connection through an external connection. It helps protect your sensitive data via encryption and can allow you to access blocked websites or streaming movies and TV shows from other countries.

There are plenty of top VPN services out there, and thankfully, many of them have met the rising demand in the wake of COVID-19 by offering excellent deals on service. From free months of service to super-cheap long-term rates, these are the best VPN deals right now.

My phone is so big and bulky. Great for most things, like playing games or taking the 1,000th awesome pic of my cat, but it’s not as great if I’m out on a walk and have to pull the thing out of my pocket to check a notification. But that’s where a good smartwatch sale can help you (and me) out, and right now you can get the fifth generation of Fossil smartwatches for $200.

This lovely smartwatch will give you all the normal smartwatch features, like a notification checker and... telling you the time, but the Fossil smartwatch has a few extra bells and whistles, too. The watch also provides a heart-rate monitor, and the ability to use Google Assistant and Google Pay for just general life ease. Trust me, Google Pay can be a lifesaver if you lose your wallet.

This smartwatch may not be quite as intense as some others on the market, but it’ll get the job done, and more importantly, will do it for only $200 right now. Grab this deal before it’s gone!

If you have tons of electronics you need to plug in, look no further than the Anker PowerPort strip. For a decent $40, which is $10 off the original list price, you can plug in six devices in the AC outlets as well as two traditional USB ports and a USB-C port. Not to mention all the devices you plug in will be protected from any and all surges that may occur! Grab this before it’s gone!

We’ve all been spending an... inordinate amount of time inside. Why not treat yourself to a better Netflix binging and video game grinding experience? Best Buy has a very big and very fancy TV on sale for $850, and you should definitely consider grabbing it.

This LG smart TV is a whopping sixty-five inches, so you know you’ll be able to see everything on this baby. The TV boasts a 2160p resolution, and four (!) HDMI ports. As someone that only has 2 HDMI ports, that sounds awesome. The Nano 8 can also hook up with Google Assistant so you can use it to turn the TV on and off, or change the channels without the remote.

There are all sorts of other features on Best Buy’s store page, so make sure to give it a look! And remember—you deserve nice things.

I really, really want the Sony WH1000XM3 headphones. I’ve had them recommended to me many times over, but it’s really, really hard to get past that steep price tag. Am I really going to use them enough to justify the $300+ price tag?

Mu6 seems to agree about the WH1000XM3's high price tag, and are offering a comparable replacement to the bluetooth headphones for the fraction of the price. The Mu6 Space 1 Noise Cancelling Headphones also have active noise cancelling, and the headphones have an auto-pause and auto-play feature that knows when you have your headset on or off. With the code 2RN6UR69, you can give this headset a try at just $118.

If you have learned anything about me, dear readers, it’s that I don’t have room for shit. My room is small, my desk is small, and I have to throw headsets and controllers on the wall like I’m some kind of nerd (well, I am a nerd, but that’s besides the point). Finding a place where my power strips and surge protectors where my cat won’t knock into them is a challenge as well, but that’s where this funky looking surge protector comes in.

This six-plug, 4 USB power strip can cling to the side of your desk with its shape and clip on the inside, which means you can plug in all of your computer stuff and some chargers, then get the bulky wire mess out of the way. It’s much better than my solution to duct-tape my power strip to the back of the desk, at least.

Office Depot is having a sale on this nifty little guy, and you can get it for just $20. No code needed!

Hey, you. Are you looking for an excellent pair of wireless earbuds that cost less than a suburban lunch? We already loved the BT Transfer by Status Audio when they debuted at $69, so we were floored when we saw they’ve dropped to $20.

They’re not true wireless, but you do get a pair of stringed buds with reliable Bluetooth 5.0 aptX audio, IPX5 water resistance, and eight-hour battery life. Each pair comes with four different size options for the ear tips and fins, so even if you have a couple of Grand Canyons flanking your face like I do, you shouldn’t have any comfort issues.

If you’re among those who are able to stay indoors right now, your phone’s probably lasting a bit longer per charge. But, if you still have to venture outdoors for work, or you’d like a little less phone-anxiety accompanying you on your daily walks, a portable battery can go a long way in making sure you’re never without a way to get in touch. Right now, RAVPower’s 16750mAh power bank is down to $18 when you use the code KINJAN99.

Food scales are incredibly important to have in your kitchen. Not sure if you evenly split your portions of ground beef? Weigh it! Trying to figure out what 100g is? Weigh it! Point is, a kitchen scale should be as much of a fixture in your home as a sink. If you don’t have one yet, the Homever Food Scale is on sale for just $16, if you use the code 6ZSG37LG at checkout. This scale is a bit larger than the average kitchen scale too, so you can weight pretty much anything on this baby.

Ice cubes are, of course, a great thing, but then they melt and water down your drink. That sucks. So instead of normal ice cubes, grab these stainless steel cubes and keep your drink cold without the unfortunate side-effect of them melting. You can grab these half off for $15 if you use the code B2373AE3 at checkout, and that’s a great price to save the integrity of your drinks.

Handyman or not, everyone needs to make sure they have a solid toolkit in their house. It wouldn’t do to have a major problem fixed with a simple wrench and not have one! DeWALT’s 204 piece set will give you all the sockets and wrenches you’ll need to to take care of most jobs around the house, and it can be yours for a low, low $150.

The Qidoe Car Charger can make sure you won’t have this problem again, with two USB ports and a USB Type-C port. It also has additional lighter slots built in, just in case you were using the car lighter to power something else. It’s a pretty good deal at $14 on Amazon, so grab this while it lasts!

My roommates and I don’t like paying too much on utilities, so we keep the house at 76 degrees, as recommended by our power company. That’s all fine and good during the day, but I find myself burning up when I head to bed. My puny fan doesn’t really help, so I need a more direct method to cool down. That’s where the ChiliPAD comes in.

The ChiliPAD sleep system comes with a mattress pad that cools you down, as well as a “thermal regulating control unit”, which sounds extremely fancy. You can get the ChiliPAD and cool down your bed for $150 off when you use the code sleepretreat at checkout. That brings a one-person ChiliPAD for a queen bed down to $350! Now go and get some quality sleep, for me.

Need a handle of vodka sent to your door in the next 2 hours? Who doesn’t! For our NYC-based readers, Vodka Mariette is offering 15% off both subscriptions and one-time purchases using the coupon code KINJA15. Now I’ve tried it myself (in fact, I treated myself to a Vodka Mariette soda last night while cooking dinner) and I’ll say, it goes down real smooth. Too smooth almost. But in these desperate times, we all need a little something to take the edge off.

Vodka Mariette is 5x distilled AND GMO-free, plus they promise delivery in under 2 hours for anyone living in Manhattan or Brooklyn. I ordered recently to our studio downtown and can attest to the expeditious pace. Sadly, cities outside of NYC are missing out on this deal—but worry not—a rep at Vodka Mariette told me they’re planning on expanding the service very soon. Tip your driver and drink responsibly.

Now that we’re at home all the time, slowly losing our minds, it’s crucial, now than ever, that we start taking our vision seriously.

Starting today until May 4, Too Faced has a spectacular deal for you. With any $45 purchase use the code LOVEMYSKIN and receive their self-care duo set. This includes a hangover scrunchie and the deluxe hangover pillow cream.

This is a spectacular deal because that cream is $42 on its own and worth every penny. If you need a great hydrating night cream to give you a replenished glowing look in the morning this is it. If you’ve used Too Faced before you know their products are quality and smell amazing, this one is no different.

Before... well, everything happened, I really enjoyed my weightlifting routine at the gym. However, I was also kind of an idiot, and I did said weightlifting with bare hands. Turns out, that shreds your hands up and leaves a bunch of calluses! Not the best. Instead, you want to grab some workout gloves to protect your precious palms from the ravages of the barbell. Trideer has some workout gloves on sale, so you can be ready to go back to the gym once they reopen.

These workout gloves are padded, which makes them really good for weightlifting and bodybuilding, but maybe not as great for something like yoga (I’m no expert though, so you be the judge). Additionally, these gloves also perform the very important role of supporting your wrists, which is essential to avoiding injury with higher weights.

The best part? After using the code 4057SY1Q at checkout, these gloves are only $10. It’s a steal, so grab them now and be ready when you can get back to your routine.

Mother’s Day will be here before you know it! Mostly because every day seems to run into each other and I’m sure most of us don’t know what they mean anymore. I’ve missed birthdays and anniversaries while in quarantine because it’s just so hard to keep track without really structured days. But I won’t let that happen for Mother’s Day. Staring today Nordstrom Rack is having one of their deepest discounts (40%-60% off) on all handbags, totes, clutches, and backpacks.

There are a plethora of choices in this sale. Functional backpacks for sporty moms, tons of Marc Jacobs for fashion moms, and cute clutches for classy moms. Nordstrom Rack also has 30% off sitewide with free shipping on any purchase over $100. There will be an expedited shipping option too in case you need a little more time to make a decision but it can get there for Mother’s Day. Either way, lots of beautiful choices for our marvelous moms whether we are with them or not.

I pretty much exclusively use a water flosser to floss my teeth. Let’s just say that my teeth are pretty close together, and normal floss may have did some damage to a filling one time. It fucking hurt. Anyway, I recommend everyone look into water flossers—they’re easier to use, less wasteful, and so on—and now you can grab this water flosser for a cool $20 if you use code DDPQSO9W at checkout.

The ABOX water flosser has three different settings, so you can adjust the intensity to how sensitive your gums are. The flosser can go for ten days or so without needing a charge, and it’s also easy to take apart and clean. For just $20, why not grab it?

I have poor balance. Extremely poor balance. So bad that I can topple over by just standing. So this wobble cushion really seems like something I should get. For exercising and yoga, this makes your balance moves more challenging, so you build up even better balance. You can also use this on your office chair, with the wobble aspect working to help you sit better (I personally have bad balance AND bad posture). If you want to give this bad boy a try, now is your chance, because it’s only $12 when you use code SG4FRJ3P at checkout.

Diamond announced a few days ago that distribution of comics will resume on May 20th and they’ve already begun taking orders from DC. ComiXology is offering a 60-da free trial to their Unlimited service in the interim. But honestly, this is a great deal even if Diamond has their business together. It’s no secret COVID-19 has rocked the industry and threatened shops globally. If you are in a position to support your local shop in the coming month’s check-in to see how they are doing also.

ComiXology is offering a great opportunity to get caught up, revisit, or discover a series for the first time. I personally have several Marvel and Archie series loaded up on my iPad to ease the ability to read, but you can views all these titles on your computer too. As an Unlimited member, you will also get access to exclusive deals and sales each publisher has throughout the year.

This is a great opportunity for any comic or manga reader. And if you love the service after those 60 days, it’s just $5.99 after that.

Want to get invested in a manga instead of another comic book series? Until Monday, ComiXology is having a sale on its line of Dark Horse manga, so you can save up to 50% on some popular series and keep adding to the book backlog.

Of the ones I’ve seen on the list, the first two actually stuck out to me the most—Berserk and Blade of the Immortal. Berserk is pretty much the quintessential dark and violent series, and I’ve seen a lot of people sing the praises of Blade of the Immortal, enough to tempt me to pick up the first few volumes of the manga myself.

Dark Horse also publishes a number of video-game related manga, including the Fate/Zero and Danganronpa mangas. There is something here for everyone, so give the sale a look!

If there’s one constant in life, it’s that there’s a Kindle Store sale going on. This weekend, you can save on some reader favorites and add to your ever-growing book backlog, all for under $5 a book.

There is something that strikes me about this sale, though. The reader favorites cover a variety of genres, sure, but there is... a lot of self-help books. The very first book on this list is Tiny Habits: The Small Changes That Change Everything, and looking through the sale’s eight pages reveals more self-help books like Mistakes Were Made (but Not by Me) and The Deepest Well: Healing the Long-Term Effects of Childhood Adversity. In short, y’all need help, and these books have one of the many, many answers available to you. Which is great! It’s not like therapy is affordable to everyone.

Oh, there’s also some books about math or something.

ComiXology is having a sale for the next week and calling it a discount on ‘Black Widow’ books. But there are none in the collection. ::shrugs:: However, one of my favorite Marvel comics of all time is and Natasha plays a very big part. Ed Brubaker’s run with the Winter Soldier is probably a top-three thing in the history of graphic novels for me. He takes such good care of Bucky by my standards. In The Longest Winter, Bucky teams up with Black Widow to uncover a slew of ex-Russian sleeper agents who have been re-activated. Butch Guice does some beautiful things with the art in the action sequences too. All four volumes are included in the sale and I can’t recommend these enough. If you’ve ever been curious about Bucky, Natasha, and even Clint (Hawkeye) this is a great place to start. Cursory knowledge should be fine.

Also in the sale is a hodge-podge of Secret Avengers books. I do really like what Warren Ellis did with this series. But my hat’s off to Ales Kot who really takes this book to new places in all three volumes. He does some fun things with Clint and Natasha plus I love the way Michael Walsh draws the Widow. Even the title of the first book tells you all, Let’s Have a Problem. Where our beloved heroes deal with three crises at once. Of all the options in this series, you can’t go wrong with this one.

Now is as good a time as any to make new friends around the world, and unless your idea of a good time is deciphering cryptic codecs—because that’s exactly what it feels like with Google Translate sometimes—learning a new language might be something you’re into. Rosetta Stone licenses are heavily discounted today for anyone up for the challenge, including a lifetime license for $200 (down from $300). You can also put up $96 for 12 months of unlimited access, and $144 for two years. (But let’s be real: you’ll probably need more than two years.)

You’re getting full access to learn more than 24 of the world’s most common and popular languages, including Mandarin, French, German, Japanese, Greek, and even Hebrew. I can tell you from experience that the single most useful thing you can take on an international vacation is at least basic knowledge of the local language, so be sure to start practicing now for that post-quarantine trip you’ve had to put off.

This legendary martial artist died way too young, so if you’re feeling a bit nostalgic and want to relive the glory days of him kicking holes through human chests, check out this big collection of Bruce Lee’s biggest hits on Blu-Ray, which is normally $125, but has fallen to $92 over at Amazon.

You’ll get five remastered movies in the bundle:

  • The Big Boss
  • Fist of Fury
  • The Way of the Dragon
  • Enter the Dragon
  • Game of Death

That’s about as solid a starter pack as you’re going to find.

This item is for the Venn diagram of Final Fantasy lover and hardcore vinyl collector. The packaging and design of these vinyl sets from Square Enix over the years have been gorgeous, this one falls in line with that. This 2-LP vinyl set is limited edition and looks to not be available for immediate purchase on the company’s site.

If you jumped into the Final Fantasy VII Remake in March this will be all too familiar as the set covers selected tracks from that as well as highlights from the original game. If you’re down to jam to the music of Midgar, this one goes out to you.

Reading reviews, it does seem like this is a gift for only loyalists of the franchise so take that into consideration. Either way, it’s still a beautiful piece of artwork and Amazon Prime will have it to you in mere days. It is currently $60 and ships free with Prime. A vinyl fantasy one might say. Sorry, not sorry.

If you haven’t already checked out Nintendo Labo on your Nintendo Switch, we don’t blame you. It’s tons of fun and changes the way you play your Nintendo Switch, but ultimately, you’re paying $40 for slabs of cardboard (and, to be fair, the quirky games they’re designed for). That’s not true at Target today, though, which has several Labo Toy-Con kits on sale for $20, including the VR Starter Kit + Blaster, a vehicle kit with controls perfect for land, sea, and air, and a variety kit that can be used as a fishing pole, a piano, steering bars for a motorbike, and more.

For the unaware, Nintendo Labo Kits feature two-pronged fun. First, you assemble the cardboard controls into whichever mode you fancy, and then you stick your Switch hardware inside and play simple, yet deceivingly fun games with a control scheme more involved than your typical frantic button-pressing.

As a Reinhardt main who relies on cunning instinct and ballsy energy to rack up eliminations, I always die a little inside when new (read: fookin’ overpowered) Overwatch characters like Echo come out. They just make my guy look like a complete scrub. You can either beat ‘em or join ‘em, and for a better chance at success in either endeavor, you should be playing on more than just Joy-Cons. That’s why this PowerA wireless controller for the Nintendo Switch is perfect with its Overwatch skin. Reaper is front and center here, which may not be ideal if you have the same PTSD I do from hearing his ult pop off, but HEY: the controller is only $37, so we’ll just have to deal with it.

Nioh 2: Special Edition (PS4) | $69 | Amazon

Team Ninja seems to have released yet another banger in Nioh 2, the souls-like action RPG that only knows PS4 as its home. If you’ve exhausted your backlog and looking for something new to play, you can pick the special edition up at Amazon right now for $11 off, or a final total of $69.

The special edition comes with a few extra niceties for the few extra dollars they’re requiring, including a steelbook case, an art book, and the season pass that’ll presumably put you in line for all the DLC that release down the road.

Here’s how Heather Alexandra at Kotaku starts off in her long evaluative look at Nioh 2:

The Dark Souls formula is tried and true. It’s been adapted into science fiction settings, placed into 2D, and refined time and time again. 2017’s Nioh is arguably the most successful spin on the genre, adding flashy combat and the turbulent politics of medieval Japan. Nioh 2 is an improvement on every front. There’s no other way of saying it: I’ve never played a game where fighting feels as good as this.

Pre-order Cyberpunk 2077 (PS4, Xbox One, PC) | $50 | Amazon

We were supposed to be playing Cyberpunk 2077 right around this time, but like the good studio it is, CD Projekt Red delayed the game until September 17 to polish up. There are far too many games to play to still be upset about that, but if you’ve been jonesing for Cyberpunk 2077, perhaps this pre-order deal will make you feel a bit better. Amazon is offering the game for $50 today (PS4 and PC, too), and it’ll arrive at your doorstep on launch day.

What’s better, you’ll get all sorts of nice extras included:

Digital:

  • Cyberpunk 2077 Soundtrack
  • Cyberpunk 2077 Art Booklet
  • Cyberpunk 2020 Sourcebook
  • Wallpapers for desktop and mobile

Physical:

  • World Compendium detailing Cyberpunk’s setting and lore
  • Postcards from Night City
  • Map of Night City
  • Stickers

And as you may be aware, pre-ordering at Amazon guarantees you any further price drops between now and whenever your item ships.

You’ve already cleaned your home with all the free time you’ve gained, I’m sure, and if you’re anything like Jolie, you’ve also been rage cleaning, just because. At this point, any further efforts to clean can only be seen as a desperate, cryptic cry for some sort of help. After you’ve resolved your internal conflict and made a full return to normalcy, let someone else do the job. It could be your kids, but not all of us have them, and barring expensive nanny care, a eufy RoboVac just might be the next best thing. The BoostIQ RoboVac 11S is just $150, but only when using the exclusive promo code KINJAEUFY at Amazon.

Klipsch is celebrated for its long history of providing top-notch audio equipment, having built its name on solid studio recording equipment and premium headphones. You can add wireless speakers to that list with products like The Three II, which normally goes for the Klipsch-appropriate price tag of $574, but if you act quickly, you can catch a rare discount down to $250 (there’s also a Matte Black model), no promo code needed.

The Three II features an abundance of input options to cover any need you could have, including Bluetooth, 3.5mm auxiliary, USB, and Wi-Fi. The lattermost brings one of The Three II’s best features—wireless multiroom audio. With it, you can pair the speaker up with any others in Klipsch’s entire multiroom-capable family to spread good vibes throughout the home. The speaker also has voice control through Alexa (separate device required, like the Echo Dot).

Bee-tee-dubs, in case you can’t tell, The Three II is not a portable speaker. It’s a tabletop unit meant to be used in the home—perhaps the antique design with its physical nobs and switches gives that away—and you’ll need a power outlet to use it.

The Tie Bar doesn’t care that it’s almost May, and they have three great looking sweaters for you to grab. With the code WFH20, you’ll be able to grab them for $36.

Amazon is giving away three months of access to its increasingly impressive music service, after which you’ll be asked to pay $8 monthly to continue. That’s cheaper than most others, though, and you may like what you find after signup.

Amazon has one of the most extensive catalogs with over 60 million tracks, and the mobile app supports Alexa and all the devices she loves to dwell in, so you don’t have to move an inch in bed to start that morning routine playlist.

There’s no time like the present to start practicing basic hygiene. And if you want to step up your dental game to impress your co-workers when the time comes, we’re offering you a head start. For $36 less than the going rate, you can freshen up those fangs with the Colgate Optic White Advanced LED whitening kit.

While I’ve never personally tested Colgate’s solution, I HAVE used an LED whitening kit before—and it worked until I fell off the wagon. Stick with it for 10 minutes a day, 10 days in a row and the blue light-activated hydrogen peroxide will quickly whip your teefers into shape. Just plug it in, apply two vials of serum per day, and voilà, you’re golden (but your teeth aren’t!).

Besame has had some beautiful collaborations with Disney over the years and this tribute to the mouse of the house is no different. The two shades are inspired by the black and white art that brought the steamboat captain to life in the 1930s. It’s the perfect way to still feel apart of the Magic Kingdom while the parks are closed.

The black shade (Ink & Paint) is actually a blackberry color and berry flavored. This is a shade that works with your personal pH to give you a totally unique purple-ish shade. Mickey Red is a strawberry tone/flavor taken directly from the rascally rodent’s pants and shoes. Both are marked down to $15 from $24.

As always each tube is gorgeously constructed with art lifted right from the dawn of Disney. No code needed for the discounts. And there’s free shipping on all orders over $50.

I’m not an avocado fan—yes, you can drag me in the comments about that later, but I can’t deny the total efficiency of this avocado slicer. For a low as hell $9, you can split, pit, and slice your avocados faster than you can even say avocado. The slicer has a non-slip grip and it’s also dishwasher-safe for folks who just can’t stand washing any of their kitchen utensils by hand. Get this before it’s gone and enjoy the homemade guacamole!

When you’re in the house all day, every day (literally), gross little setbacks of your house and apartment wind up popping up more frequently. More specifically, clogged drains filled with your hair, your roommate’s hair, or even the hair of your wife and kids. It really doesn’t matter whose hair it belongs to, it’s stuck in the shower and you’ve gotta get it out. For a cheap $10, you can get three drain snakes to combat the clogging so your shower-time can get back to normal. All you’ve gotta do is stick it into your drain and the little ridges (plus a bit of elbow grease) will do the rest. Get a pack and reclaim your shower!
