$70 for a Logitech Harmony remote is a great deal on its face, but the real reason to buy this model is the included Harmony Hub.
The Hub allows you to use your iPhone, Android device, or even an Amazon Echo to control everything a Harmony remote can (which is basically any piece of home theater gear you can think of). So even when you inevitably lose the included remote behind the couch cushions, you’ll still have multiple ways to take control of all of your home theater gear.
Considering the hub alone sells for $77 right now, so you’re basically saving $7 here, and getting the remote for free.
The recent release of Qi-compatible iPhones means that wireless charging pads are flying off the shelves, and we have an exclusive discount on Anker’s 10W model with promo code KINJA519.
iPhones can only charge at 7.5W right now, so this will max out your iOS wireless charging speed, with some extra power available for compatible Android phones. I bought it for myself late last year, and use it with my iPhone X every night. I love that the edges of the pad light up temporarily when you set your phone down, so I can be sure I placed it correctly even when I’m groggy and not wearing my glasses.
Update: The seller that has them for $4 might be iffy, so best to buy them from Amazon.com directly for $7, which is a pretty good price, historically.
Get a better grip on your phone with one these expandable PopSockets. These Amazon bestsellers are just $4 today, down from their usual $8, and they double as kickstands, which can then be collapsed down so your phone will still fit nicely in your pocket.

HDTV bias light strips can improve your TV’s perceived black levels and reduce eyestrain, but just as importantly, they look really cool. Just stick it to the back of your TV, plug it into your set’s USB port, and bask in the glow.
This $10, 80" strip should be long enough for most TVs 60" or below, and you can cut it down to size if it’s too big for your needs.
If you got yourself a nice new TV for the holidays, you can mount it to your wall for less than you might think today.
The government should mandate that all TVs come with at least five HDMI ports. I see no downside to this. Until I become president though, this $10 HDMI switcher will have to do. It basically turns one port into two, switches between devices at the press of a button.
Should you ever find yourself without power for an extended period of time, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that as long as you have access to sunlight or can turn a crank, you can listen to the radio (including emergency weather stations), turn on a flashlight, and charge your phone. This model from Eton and the American Red Cross has never been cheaper than it is today.
Anker’s SoundBuds Slims were the single most popular product among our readers in 2017, and the red and blue-corded models are down to $19 on Amazon right now, down from their usual ~$26.
Despite their diminutive size, these wireless ‘buds pack in an impressive seven hours of battery life, and can fully recharge in about 90 minutes.
There aren’t a whole lot of USB-C chargers out there that can output enough juice to charge a MacBook at full speed, but this iClever BoostCube can handle it, and then some.
Its single USB-C port can push out 45W of power, which is squarely between the 12" MacBook’s 29W and the 13" MacBook Pro’s 61W. That means it’ll charge the former at full speed, and should charge the latter fairly quickly considering it’s only $19 with code N3JQ886V, compared to the $69 Apple charges for a 61W power supply.
If you’re planning on
fleeing the country taking a trip overseas anytime soon, you’ll want to pack this universal outlet adapter, which can convert an AC outlet, and includes four (!!) USB ports too for your mobile devices.

You know those ridiculous camping tents with multiple rooms? This is basically the same idea for your pet, who deserves the extra space, unlike you.

But when you’re using it at home or in the back of your car, you can unzip any of the four sides to give your furry friend more room to stretch out.
These $9 gloves let you grab a hot pan out of the oven, pull meat right off a grill, or even turn logs in an active campfire without getting burned, like some kind of kitchen superhero.

The humble and inexpensive cast iron skillet is one of most important pieces of cooking gear you can own, and Lodge’s highly-rated 8” model is back down to $9 on Amazon, albeit as an add-on item. Obviously, this is too small to be your main skillet, but it’d be great if you were cooking for yourself, or heating up some side dishes.

This 15' roll of industrial strength sticky-back Velcro stripping has never been cheaper; just stick some to the wall of your garage, roll some more around the handles of your tools, and presto, you’ve got an organization system. This is basically how they organize stuff on the Space Station to keep it from floating away.
If your refrigerator doesn’t have an automatic ice maker, or if you just want one for something like a boat or an RV, these countertop model can produce upwards of 25 pounds of ice per day.
In terms of raw specs, all of the models on sale in today’s Amazon Gold Box are pretty similar. The two cheapest options are identical save for their color, and the more expensive ones can produce two different ice cube sizes, but are otherwise basically the same.
Using a fraction of the oil than its deep frying counterparts, this $120 Philips TurboStar Airfryer claims to be a healthier cooking method for all of your favorite fried foods. Hey, every little bit helps at this time of year.

You could buy a $5 umbrella every time you get caught in a storm, only to watch it disintegrate before you get to safety, or you could invest in a Blunt umbrella for 20% off with promo code AWNB96E4.
Blunt umbrellas feature rounded safety tips to avoid poking anyone in the eye, include a special pocket for a Tile device tracker, and most importantly, can withstand winds of up to 72 mph (in the case of the standard model, others are lower). For reference, tropical storms become hurricanes at 74 mph, so if your Blunt ever succumbs to the wind, you probably have bigger things to worry about. You can see it in action in the video above, which personally left me slack-jawed.
Note: Make sure you’re buying from the BLUNT USA listing, not the Amazon.com listing, or else the code won’t work. You’ll still get Prime shipping.
These umbrellas hardly ever go on sale, but this week only, you can save 20% on either size, and in any color, with promo code AWNB96E4. The most popular models are the Classic and the smaller Metro:

Developed by Harmonix, of Rock Band fame, DropMix seems perhaps a little too ambitious—most people don’t have great rhythm, after all—but the game is executed shockingly well. There are multiple game modes, the base set includes 60 song cards from popular artists (though you can purchase expansions, naturally), and it’s beginner-friendly enough for anyone to play.
