Today’s Best Tech Deals

Sony WH-1000XM3 & Sennheiser HD 6XX Bundle | $400 | Drop (formerly Massdrop)

Note: This deal goes live at 9AM ET, but quantities are expected to be very limited, so we’re posting it early to give you a chance to prepare.

While it may seem ludicrious, this $400 Sony WH-1000XM3 & Sennheiser HD 6XX bundle actually makes a lot of sense (and could save you a ton of money.) Let me explain. These are both terrific headphones. We’ve written, at length about how good the Sony XM3s are, and the Sennheiser HD 6XX is pretty legendary. But they serve very different purposes.

The Sonys are noise canceling, which is helpful when you’re on a plane or subway, and don’t want to hear anything. By contrast, Sennheisers are open back headphones, which let sounds pass through the cups, and allow you hear your surroundings (while also letting your music leak out). This openness gives these headphones a larger sound stage, and in turn, gives you a better listening experience.

So TL;DR, one is for outside, the other is for inside (but not in an open office, please).

If you purchase these separately, these two pairs of headphones would cost you over $500 ($220 for the Sennheisers, $300-$350 for the Sonys). So, buying the Sony WH-1000XM3 & Sennheiser HD 6XX bundle will in fact save a lot of money if you’re willing to invest in one purchase.


eero + eero Beacon | $239 | Amazon
eero + Two eero Beacons | $319 | Amazon
Three-Pack eero routers | $399 | Amazon

If Amazon’s acquisition of eero didn’t scare you off the pioneer in mesh networking, the retailer is celebrating its new networking play-thing with big discounts across the board.

Get an Eero and an extra Eero Beacon for $239 (a $60 discount), an eero and two beacons for $319 (an $80 discount), or for the largest and most densely constructed houses, three full-fat eero routers for $399 (a $100 discount). To be clear, If you live in a one bedroom apartment, you don’t need any of these, but if you find that a single router doesn’t get you a reliable Wi-Fi signal in every part of your house, mesh systems like these are a godsend.

Status Audio BT Structure | $63 | Amazon | Promo code INVENTORY20

You probably know Status Audio from the company’s legendary CB-1 over-ear headphones, but the brand’s new Bluetooth earbuds carry on that legacy of sound quality, while letting you finally cut the cord.

Launched last month, we’re big fans of the BT Transfer and BT Structure headphones, and had this to say about them on The Inventory:

If you prefer in-ear monitors, Status has you covered with two different options. The larger BT Structures include over-ear wings for a secure fit, a whopping 12 hours of battery life, and a larger-than-usual 9mm dual driver system that allows them to achieve an impressive depth on the low end without sounding muddy. They’re the best-sounding wireless earbuds I’ve ever tried.

For $10 less, the BT Transfers offer a smaller form factor at the expense of battery life (eight hours instead of 12) and slightly smaller 8mm drivers, though those are still larger than the ~6mm drivers you’d find in most earbuds of this size. To my ears, they sounded nearly identical to the Structures, so I’d choose based on the form factor that’s right for you. Both sets of earbuds are IPX5 water resistant (not great, but good enough for exercise), include Bluetooth 5.0, and sadly, charge over microUSB.

You can now buy either model on Amazon, and our readers can take 20% off with promo code INVENTORY20.


Amazon Cloud Cam | $90 | Amazon

Whether you want to use Amazon’s Key in-home delivery service, or, you know, don’t, Amazon’s Cloud Cam is a solid standalone product for monitoring your home, and it’s $30 off today.

With 1080p recording, night vision, a 2-way intercom, and 24 hours of free cloud clip storage (or more if you sign up for a paid account), its specs compare very favorably to the Nest Cam, especially at today’s $90 price point.

That’s $30 less than usual, and if, somewhere down the road, you decide to buy a smart lock, you’ll have everything you need to use Amazon Key.


Anker Mini Car Charger | $11 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Tiny car chargers like this one have been massive hits with our readers for years, because they have that built-into-your-car look, but charge your phone much faster than the piddly USB port your car probably includes.

Now, Anker has a mini car charger of its own, it can charge two phones at 12W simultaneously, and it’s down to $11 (from $15) today on Amazon.


Samsung 970 EVO 500GB SSD | $90 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Samsung makes some of the best solid state drives around and this Samsung 970 EVO m.2 SSD is currently marked down to $90, an all-time low.

It bears repeating that SSDs are a huge upgrade over a spinning hard drive for your computer, in terms of speed and reliability. This 500GB model offers read speed up to 3400 MB/s and write speed up to 2300 MB/s.

This is also the easiest way to get more performance from your older computer.


Panasonic Link2Cell Bluetooth Cordless Phones | $85 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Landlines are great for emergencies. They have the added benefit of storing your precise location data, so 911 operators already have that info, saving you precious time. They’ll also keep working even when mobile networks are congested with calls.

If it’s time for a replacement, there’s a Gold Box deal on a set of five Panasonic Link2Cell Bluetooth Cordless Phones.

This particular $85 model allows you to sync your smartphone to these so you never miss a call, add voice alerts, even charge your devices with the USB input on the home base. And this is the lowest price we’ve ever seen.

Photo: Amazon

Intex has quietly been making inflatable versions of...everything. And while you might be most familiar with their novelty pool floats, today’s deal is an inflatable you can use all year long.

Yes. Behold the inflatable sectional. Gaze upon it, and despair.

I’m by no means suggesting that this should be your main couch. But it could act as additional seating (both indoors and out) when you have lots of guests coming over. You could bring it to a friend’s house. You could set it up in the parking lot for a tailgate. It’s down to $50 today on Amazon, within a few cents of an all-time low, so at least when people give you weird looks about it, you can laugh nervously and tell them you bought it ironically.


Cosori Glass Kettle | $30 | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

It’s not cold outside yet, but you can still stay cozy inside with a nice hot cup of whatever made with this Cosori glass kettle, now on sale for $30 —that’s the best price we’ve seen. A built-in LED light indicates when your water has reached its boiling point, and it certainly won’t be an eye sore on your kitchen counter.

Butcher Box just added a new meat to its arsenal: wild-caught Atlantic sea scallops! Yes, the chicken nuggets of the sea can be delivered to your front door, and if you sign up for a new membership right now, you’ll get a pound of scallops and a pack of bacon thrown in for free, in addition to whatever else would have been in your box anyway.

You may be tempted to make bacon-wrapped scallops, and I wouldn’t blame you if you did, but there’s nothing wrong with enjoying them separately, on their own merits.

Your bonus come bundled with any of Butcher Box’s pre-selected boxes, which are priced at $129 for 24 servings, or $238 for 48 servings, which can be delivered every 30 or 60 days. For a nominal surcharge, you can also build a completely custom box, with your choices of proteins.

Graphic: Tercius Bufete

All foods are better fried, but because the world is a cruel place, fried foods are bad for you. If you are looking to eat fried guilt-free, look no further than this DASH Compact Air Fryer, now down to $70 thanks to Amazon’s Gold Box. This 6 qt. air fryer which uses hot air instead of oil to make everything extra crispy.

It’s technically an oven, so it’ss also a great tool for cooking frozen foods.

At $70, it’s the lowest price we’ve ever seen. Order up one in either black, aqua, white or red, before this deal becomes stale at the end of the day.

Kan Jam | $32 | Amazon

Friends, it’s officially lawn game season, and Kan Jam is a dynamic, active alternative to your standard cornhole and ladder toss. But don’t worry, you can still hold a drink in one hand.

Teams of two line up opposite each other next to two special cans (included), just like Cornhole. One team member tosses a frisbee at a can, and the other attempts to bop it out of the air, and onto or into the can for varying numbers of points. It combines two great activities: throwing a frisbee, and slapping things out of the air, so you’ve got a recipe for fun.

This was one of our readers’ favorite lawn games in a recent Co-Op, and today’s $30 deal is about $8 less than usual. Have fun!
