Today’s Best Tech Deals

Right now, Prime members can save $100 on the Acer Predator Helios 300 gaming laptop. This 15.6" laptop uses an Intel Core i7 processor, a GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card, 16GB of memory, and a 256GB SSD for storage, but the main draw here is the 144Hz refresh rate panel, which is a rarity in gaming laptops in this price range.

If you’re looking for a solid gaming laptop that doesn’t need any modification (other than a mouse,) this is the lowest price we’ve seen on this particular model. Get yours before this discount goes away.

Apple’s new MacBook Air may be boring, but it’s a thin little workhorse with a bigger, better screen and a faster processor than the 12" MacBook, which might just hit your laptop Goldilocks zone. And unlike the MacBook Pro, it comes with TouchID (yay!) without the obnoxious Touch Bar (yay!).

If the price was scaring you away, Amazon is taking $250 off the 128GB and $300 off the 256GB models, in all three available colors (except for the space gray 256GB model which is out of stock.) For whatever it’s worth wife got one of these when it came out, and she loves it.


TCL 55S517 4K 55" TV | $380 | Amazon
TCL 49S517 4K 49" TV | $300 | Walmart

TCL’s 2018 6-series TVs are famous for offering every form of HDR (including top-shelf Dolby Vision) and excellent Roku software in an affordable package, and the 5-series has basically all of the same features, save for a metal body and local LED dimming zones. It still supports Dolby Vision, it still has an advanced Roku remote and app control, and it’ll still look amazing.

So if you’re in the market, both the 49" and 55" are on sale, the former for its all-time low price, and the latter within $5 of the best we’ve seen. Get the 49" for $300, or the 55" for $380.


Seagate FireCuda 2TB | $65 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Seagate’s FireCuda is one of the most popular PS4 replacement hard drives out there, mostly thanks to its built-in 8GB of flash storage that can speed up loading times, and you can get the 2TB model for just $65 today, the best price ever with the exception of Prime Day, when it was $60.

Even if you don’t feel like cracking open your PS4, you could pop this into an inexpensive enclosure like this one, and use it as an external drive over USB.


Logitech G703 Lightspeed Wireless Gaming Mouse | $50 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

The Logitech G703 Lightspeed wireless gaming mouse, one of the best gaming mice you can buy, is heavily discounted today. $50 is the best price we’ve ever seen on this unit used by pro gamers like Carpe, Striker, Poko, Fury, and Space. It comes with all the features you’d want in a gaming mice, including 5 customizable buttons, a 12,000DPI sensor, and a rechargeable battery.

Logitech makes some of my favorite accessories. In fact, I’m using a Logitech gaming keyboard right now. If you’re in the market for a new mouse, pick this up before this price goes away.


Apple Magic Trackpad 2 | $105 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Once upon a time, Apple’s Space Gray Mac peripherals were only sold alongside the $5,000+ iMac Pro, and purchasers of that computer could get a good chunk of their money back by reselling the accessories on eBay.

Nowadays, you can buy them separately direct from Apple, albeit with a small-ish Space Gray tax, and the Magic Trackpad is on sale on Amazon for an all-time low $105, down from the original $149. That still hurts, but come on, look at the thing. It’s gorgeous.

Do you have a window AC unit, but it doesn’t really seem to be doing the trick? Your cool air might be leaking out the other side of your window and that nasty, hot summer weather is creeping in.

If you’ve ever worried about bugs getting into your dog’s food, you’re not alone. Honestly, a bigger worry is your dog getting into the own bag of food though, right?

It is only $15 on Amazon and works great for dry dog food (and cat food too, obviously). It can fit up to 25 pounds of food at once.

Summer barbecue season might be drawing to a close, but a good meat thermometer can come in handy all year long, and you can score a rare $20 discount on the best one today with our exclusive link.

Our readers love the Thermapen because it displays the temperature in 2 - 3 seconds, has a 3,000 hour battery, is waterproof, and is accurate to within 0.7°F.

Here are just a few readers gushing over it:

Thermapen Classic (or really any of the Thermapens). Bar none the best thermometer for cooking I have ever bought — accept no substitutes.

Somewhat expensive at ~$70-$120 range, but I’ve been using mine for years and years, and it still gives me an accurate reading in less than three seconds. Well, well worth the price. Especially excellent for the grill. - theburners

Without a doubt. No other thermometer comes close. I’ve said it before on Kinja that the Thermapen is the best piece of kitchen equipment I’ve ever bought. - the-return-of-samba00

This model is actually the newer Mk 4., which unlike the Thermapen classic includes a backlit screen, better waterproofing, better battery, and a motion sensor that automatically puts it to sleep and wakes it up.

Every well-organized person needs a good label maker, and this Brother P-Handy Touch is down to its lowest price of $10 todau. It has the capabilities to print nine fonts, 10 frames, and more than 210 symbols.

These deals usually don’t last long, so pick one up before they’re gone. Just be warned: label makers are addictive.


Listen, there’s really no good way to sleep on a plane. But if you absolutely must get some upright shut-eye, you should be using the Cabeau Evolution for head and neck support. This memory foam travel pillow handily won our Co-Op, with readers shouting out its ability to hold its shape (even though it significantly shrinks in size when packed in its carrying case) and unique front clasps. And right now, it’s on sale in grey for $30. Get yours today before this deal takes off; all your upcoming summer travel will be a dream.


Flonase Allergy Relief Nasal Spray, Pack of 2 | $24 | Amazon
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

Everyone associates allergies with spring and fall, but for those of us with year-round allergies, we know that every day outside can suck if you don’t have meds. You can get a two-pack of Flonase Allergy Relief Nasal Spray for only $24 on Amazon. That’ll give you 288 sprays to hopefully prevent you from dying when your seasonal allergies are assaulted by high pollen counts.


Eufy RoboVac 30 | $180 | Woot
Photo: Amazon

Anker’s Eufy RoboVac line has been a hit with our readers (and with us!), to say the least, and some of the company’s latest models are down to the best prices we’ve seen today on Woot.

The RoboVac 30 is the same size as the RoboVac 11s (which is to say, it’s very thin), but has stronger suction (1500Pa vs. 1300, and for comparison, the old RoboVac 10 only had 400), and includes guide strips that you can lay down anywhere in your home (like in front of cords on the ground) to warn the vacuum to steer clear.

It launched last summer $270, but this one-day deal brings it down to just $180, $20 off the best price we’ve ever seen. It’s a Woot deal though, meaning it’s only available today, or until sold out.

The best way to sort through a sale of this size is to filter by brand, and as you’ve probably guessed by now, select styles from a slew of your favorites—including Adidas, Nike, Cole Haan, Frye, Puma, Sam Edelman, and more—are among the great deals available. And don’t forget, while Zappos is shoe central, they do also have great deals on apparel, including Columbia outerwear, joggers, socks, and more.

Be sure to use promo code BDAY20 to score even more savings on select items. You’d better start sifting through this sale now, so you can snag everything you need to start fall off on the right foot.

Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Huckberry’s running a big sale on a truckload of gear during their Camp Shop sale for your next adventure. Everything from Black Diamond headlamps, sporks, and Hydroflask bottles are discounted, with prices starting at just $8.

Whether you’re looking for an easy way to start a fire, or make a pour-over on the go, this sale’s got you covered. I, for one, am seriously considering the $6 UCO Switch Spork Utensil Set and the Nordic Pocket Saw.

Graphic: Chelsea Stone

It’s not a race, but you should definitely hurry over to Adidas to take advantage of an extra 20% off their already heavily discounted sale section.

Huckberry Summer Clearance
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Huckberry just kicked off its annual summer clearance sale, with deals on dozens of men’s shirts, shorts, shoes, and more.

The sale features brands like Flint and Tinder, Seavees, Rivieras, and Howler Brothers, just to give you a taste, but there are plenty more to explore in the full sale.

For my money, the best thing you can buy here is the Nomadix Adventure Towel. Made from recycled plastic bottles, it’s thin and light enough to take to the beach or the campsite, but still absorbent enough to thoroughly dry your body.

The coolest item though is one of the few non-clothing, non-bag products in the sale: a freakin’ levitating light bulb.


Hyde Lane Riley | $99 | Kate Spade | Promo code PERFECT
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

This high quality of Kate Spade’s classic purses make them worth their standard high prices, but if you hurry, today you can snag one iconic style for half off its usual cost.

This promotion lasts for just two days, so hurry if you want to have a chance of bagging a half-price handbags.


10 Pairs of Select Underwear for $25 | Aerie
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: There is no such thing as too much underwear. Aerie apparently agrees. Right now, you can choose 10 pairs from a spectrum of select styles, from boybriefs to thongs, for just $25, which, yes, essentially means you’re getting underwear for $2.50 per pair. Pretty good considering they usually go for somewhere between $9 and $12.50 each. No need to use a promo code; just fill your cart and see the savings.


Select Sneakers | $25 | Converse | Promo code COLOR
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Converse kicks are eternal classics, and right now, you can lace up a brand new pair for way less than usual. A few dozen high-tops and low-tops in various colors are up for grabs for just $25 with promo code COLOR. Grab a pair for you and everyone you know before this deal walks away.


Men’s and Women’s New Balance Flash Event | Nordstrom Rack

A good deal on sneakers hangs in the balance: Right now at Nordstrom Rack, men’s and women’s New Balance kicks are significantly marked down.

This deal will only last for a few days, though, so take the next step and pick out your favorite style.

TODAY’S BEST GAMING DEALS

Pandemic | $25 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Pandemic is one of the best cooperative board games you can buy, and $20 is the one of the best prices Amazon’s ever listed. I suggest spending the money you saved on pizza to share with your squad.


No-brainer deal alert: Twitch Prime Members get $15 Amazon credit with the purchase of Gears of War 4, Starlink Battle for Atlas, Fallout 76, The Sims 4, and The Last of Us for...$15 (price shown at checkout). Even if you don’t own a console or PC, this is a big deal and an opportunity for what essentially ammounts to a free game..

Let me explain. If you’ve got Amazon Prime, you can sign up for Twitch Prime for free. And if you spend $10 on Gears of War 4, you’ll get $15 credit which if my math is right, gives you $5 more than you paid. And since Amazon credit is basically real money... well, y’know.


Preorder Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order [PS4/Xbox One] | $51 | Amazon

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order promises to be a Metroid-y take on the Star Wars universe, and preorders are $9 off on Amazon today for both PS4 and Xbox One. Preorderers even get a few special in-game cosmetics:

Orange Lightsaber Blade Color, BEE-D-1 Skin, Mygeeto Campaign Hilt, and Umbraran Campaign Hilt

I’m tempted just for the orange blade cover, honestly.

You won’t be charged until it ships in November, so you can always cancel later if it’s not the game you’re looking for.


FIFA 20 Standard Edition (Xbox, PlayStation 4 and Switch) Pre-Order | $51 | Amazon

Amazon official video game preorder discount program is long dead, but they still offer good deals on the occasional upcoming game. For example, they’ve dropped price of FIFA 20 down to $51 before it’s even released, for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo Switch.

Additionally, you’ll get some bonus in-game (3 rare gold packs, a loan icon player pick, and special edition FUT kits.) And just in case it gets even cheaper before release, Amazon will give you the best price guaranteed.


Mpow EG3 7.1 Gaming Headset | $18 | Amazon | Clip the 10% coupon and use promo code BSL8DFLX

Will Mpow’s EG3 gaming headset match the sound quality of a HyperX Cloud? Of course not. Do you want fancy LED lights? Try something from Razer. But if you’re on a budget and want to experience 7.1 surround sound (which really helps in games like Fortnite and PUBG), you can’t beat $18. Just clip the 10% coupon and use promo code BSL8DFLX at checkout to get the deal.
