Today’s Best Tech Deals

12.9" iPad Pro | $949-$1200 | Amazon
11" iPad Pro | $749-$1049 | Amazon
9.7" iPad | $249 | Amazon

Whether you require the raw power, advanced screen, and superior camera, and USB-C connectivity of the latest and greatest iPad Pros, or if the standard 9.7 iPad can fulfill your tablet needs, Amazon’s offering all of Apple’s latest tablets for some of the best prices we’ve seen.

Depending on capacity, the mammoth 12.9" iPad Pro is $50-$150 off, the 11" Pro is $50-$100 off, and the 32GB standard iPad is $80 off, matching the deal we saw on Black Friday. If you need help deciding which one’s right for you, Apple has a handy comparison chart here.


VIZIO SmartCast E-Series 60" TV | $428 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

This Vizio E-series TV is a couple of years old at this point, but $428 is still an incredible deal for a 60" 4K smart TV with built-in Chromecast, HDR10 support and, wait for it, *local dimming*. And before you jump into the comments, note that it’s not technically a television, since it doesn’t have a TV tuner, which at this point basically means it won’t work with an antenna out of the box. Rather, it’s a “home theater display.”


A few months ago, I wrote at length about how to abuse HP Instant Ink with a $20 printer. All of that applies to this $40 HP Envy 5055 all-in-one, except this one offers better printouts and looks nicer. It’s unlikely to match laser printers in terms of crisp, clean text but it’ll print out better photos.

Here’s a refresher on Instant Ink:

If you own a compatible HP printer... you can get free printouts thanks to HP’s Instant Ink service.

Here’s how it works: You sign up for the program, the printer monitors your monthly page count, and it contacts HP to order ink refills when you run low.

There’s a supposed monthly fee based on the number of pages you print, but here’s the important bit: Instant Ink offers a 15-page-per-month plan free of charge. Yes, that’s 15 Amazon return labels or 15 photos every month, for free.

Cheaper printers like this one are sold below cost so that the manufacturer can recoup those losses through cartridge sales. But if you’re careful about how you use HP Instant Ink, you can get away with never paying for cartridges again.

Right now, this model is $20 cheaper than usual.


SanDisk Ultra 3D NAND 500GB Internal SSD | $58 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

An SSD is one of the best upgrades you can give to your computer and $58 matches the best price we’ve seen on this 500GB SanDisk. This unit is $11 cheaper than the Samsung SSD we posted about last week.

For what it’s worth, this was on sale for $130 this time last year. That’s kind of incredible isn’t it?


Anker SoundCore Icon Mini Bluetooth Speaker | $31 | Amazon | Clip the 15% coupon
Photo: Amazon

The spiritual successor to the popular Anker SoundCore Sport, the new SoundCore Icon Mini is a tiny speaker that’s designed with the outdoors in mind, and you can save 15% at launch by clipping the on-page coupon.

The Icon Mini boasts eight hours of battery life, which is awfully impressive in a speaker that weighs as much as your phone, and takes up about as much space as a deck of cards. It’s also IP67 dust and water resistant, so it can even get fully submerged (to a point) without taking any damage. But best of all, if you get two of them, you can pair them together for stereo sound that will fill your beach tent or campground.


2-Pack Linksys Velop Mesh Routers | $100 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Mesh routers are so hot right now, and Linksys’ take on the concept is down to $100 for a 2-pack today, about $50 less than the usual going rate.

The Velop works like pretty much any other mesh networking system: One router plugs into your modem, and the rest can basically go anywhere in your home to extend the network. It even supports Alexa commands, like “Alexa, ask Linksys to turn on my guest network.”


Elgato Stream Deck Mini | $70 | Amazon

If you want to take your streaming game to the next level, Elgato’s time-saving and workflow-automating Stream Deck Mini is on sale for $70 right now, down from its usual $100.

Its six keys are actually tiny, customizable LCD screens, and you can assign them to different actions and workflows on YouTube, Twitch, and other popular streaming platforms. It’s basically a very cool, very elegant alternative to custom keybindings and keyboard shortcuts, and it would make a great gift.

Today’s Best Home Deals

Your Instant Pot comes with the barebones accessories you need to get started, but a few affordable extras can elevate your pressure cooking experience to new levels. And today, a bunch of gear from Instant Pot itself just happens to be on sale.

The best accessory you can buy, in my opinion, is a second inner pot. Now, if one’s dirty, or holding leftovers in the fridge, you can still use your Instant Pot. It normally costs $30, but it’s under $23 today for the standard 6 qt. size.

A glass lid is more of a nice-to-have than necessary accessory, but being able to see what’s going on inside the pot can be handy when you’re using sauté mode, and the steam vent means it’s great for slow cooking as well. Normally $15, it’s down to $11 today.

The rest of the deals revolve around silicone accessories. Save on a full accessory kit, a steamer basket, and a steam rack, all made by Instant Pot itself.


Refurbished Dyson Air Multiplier Tower Fan | $190 | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Dyson makes a good, blade-less fan, and today, you can take home one of your own for much less than usual. Amazon is offering up a refurbished Dyson Air Multiplier Tower Fan for $190 (a brand new one is currently going for $335), featuring a sleep timer, oscillation capability, and a remote control. It’s a price that won’t having you breaking out in a sweat, and a deal you’ll be grateful for come summer.


Excalibur 3900B Electric Food Dehydrator | $155 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Investing $155 on this Excalibur 9-Tray Electric Food Dehydrator can save you a lot of money in the long run by making your own spices, dried fruit and jerky.

Advertisement

This model offers adjustable temperature control ranging from 105 to 165 degrees Fahrenheit, making it safe to dehydrate meat for jerky. And the surface area of the trays add up to about 15 square feet of drying space. But since it’s part of Amazon’s Gold Box, this deal (which is a few bucks off its lowest price) will only last through the end of the day or until the deal dries out.


DASH Waffle Bowl Maker | $17-$20 | Amazon

I know, I know, single-use appliances are controversial. But what if I told you that this single-use appliance could make waffles into bowls? For $20, ditch all your regular, non-edible bowls and buy the DASH Waffle Bowl Maker in red or aqua (the pink model, meanwhile, is just $17!). You’ll use delicious waffles to hold everything from ice cream to chicken to...soup? I don’t know. But waffles are good! Soup is good. I say give it a go.


6 Night Costa Rica Fly and Drive Vacation | $799+ | TripMasters

Costa Rica offers some of the most stunning eco-tourism opportunities anywhere in the world, and this deal from TripMasters (in partnership with Travelzoo) makes it more accessible than ever.

Starting at $799 roundtrip (prices vary by date and departure airport), you’ll get airfare to and from San Jose City, three nights at a hotel near Arenal Volcano, three nights by the beach at Manuel Antonio-Quepos, and a rental car to get from place to place.


Anker Eufy RoboVac 30 | $180 | Amazon
Anker Eufy RoboVac 35c | $225 | 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 in today’s Amazon Gold Box.

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.

Advertisement

It launched last summer $270, but this one-day deal brings it down to just $180, the best price we’ve seen.

Or, for $225, you can opt for the brand new RoboVac 35C, marked down from $300. Cleaning performance-wise, it looks like a dead ringer for the RoboVac 30, but adds Wi-Fi, Alexa support, touch-sensitive buttons, and even a Find My Robot feature that lets you trigger an audible alarm with your phone if it gets lost under some furniture, and you’re having trouble locating it.


Frito Lay 40-Bag Variety Pack | $12 | Amazon | Clip the $4 coupon
Sun Chips 40-Bag Variety Pack | $13 | Amazon | Clip the $4 coupon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Save yourself a trip to the vending machine, and pay just under 33 cents per bag on this $12 Frito-Lay variety pack, after you clip the $4 coupon and use Subscribe & Save to maximize your savings. This pack doesn’t play it safe with any bland, original chips (with the exception of the pretzels); it’s full of bolder flavors like sour cream and onion Lay’s and Harvest Cheddar Sun Chips.

Just want Sun Chips? This pack is only about $1 more after you clip the $4 coupon.

CeraVe Moisturizing Cream | $13 | Amazon | Clip the $1.77 coupon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Winter equals dry skin for me and many others, and your only defensive against flaking and scaliness is to moisturize x1000. This CervaVe Moisturizing Cream is a gentle, non-comedogenic go-to, and right now it’s just $13 if you clip the coupon on Amazon. The lotion contains ceramides to restore your skin’s protective barrier and hyaluronic acid to help your skin better retain moisture, plus it has a National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance. You may want to consider going the Subscribe & Save route; you’ll save an extra 50 cents or so, and you’ll always be prepared for a dry skin emergency.

In case you’ve been off on some isolated peak somewhere, Backcountry’s also running its Semi-Annual Sale, so that’s a really good deal on top of a deal.

Men’s and Women’s Ultra Light Down Vest | Uniqlo
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

I used to think vests were the most useless type of clothing — I mean, why not just wear a jacket? But now, I understand that it’s all about keeping your core extra warm underneath a jacket, and Uniqlo’s Ultra Light Down Vest, now on sale for $40 for both men and women (with a few colors on sale for even less), is the vest that helped me get to this state of enlightenment.

As the name suggests, the vest really is ultra light. So light, in fact, that it’s easy to forget you’re even wearing an extra layer. And yet, it’s still toasty warm, and comes in range of pleasing color options. Maybe the most exciting feature, though, is the fact that it comes with a tiny pouch, which easily attaches to a loop on the inside, so that you can bunch up the vest and put it away if you get too hot while you’re on the go. You could say it’s a vest worth having a vested interest in owning.

Today’s Best Gaming Deals

1 Year Humble Monthly + $20 Humble Wallet Credit | $132 | Humble
Screenshot: Humble

If you enjoy playing PC games, there’s really no good reason to not join Humble Monthly, and that’s especially true right now.

For a limited time, if you prepay for a year of Humble Monthly (which saves you the equivalent of $1 per month), you’ll also get a $20 Humble Wallet credit that you can spend on Humble Bundles, or in the Humble Store.

And as always, you’ll get instant access to this month’s early access games (Earth Defense Force 4.1, Warhammer Vermintide: Collector’s Edition, and Cultist Simulator), plus more mystery games when they unlock later this week. Every game you get with Humble Monthly is yours to keep forever, even if you don’t renew your membership, so there’s no real risk of getting locked in.


Soulcalibur VI | $30 | Amazon
Graphic: Kotaku

Soulcalibur VI lets you sword fight as Geralt of Rivia. Thanks bunches, Bandai Namco! But let’s be honest, you want to buy it for the distressingly flexible character creation system. Amazon Market forces have been hacking and slashing at the price since it came out, but $30 (PS4 only, sadly) is the best deal we’ve seen so far.


Sphero BOLT | $130 | Amazon
GIF: Sphero

Sphero’s ridiculously fun rolling robots got even smarter late last year with the release of the BOLT, which added a tiny display and the ability to sync up with other BOLTs to create an adorable rolling robot army that nobody would mind overthrowing humanity.

You can drive it around for up to two hours on a charge with a joystick-based phone app, or use it as an educational tool with a free app that can teach you (or your kid, more likely) how to program. Just roll over to Amazon to save $20, matching the deal we saw around Black Friday.

Deals You May Have Missed

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.


2-Pack Eufy Smart Plugs | $26 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Anker makes smart plugs now, because Anker makes everything, and the compact model is down to just $26 for a 2-pack this week, down from the usual $40.

Advertisement

Smart plugs are basically the atomic unit of smart home gear, and like pretty much all of these things, Anker’s let you control or schedule your outlet with both your phone and with Alexa. Their built-in energy monitoring feature, however, is a little less common, and a great inclusion at this price. Plus, its slim design means it won’t block the other outlet on a receptacle, so you can plug something else in (including a second smart plug).

LilyAna Naturals Retinol Cream Moisturizer | $15 | Amazon | Clip the $5 coupon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

In case you haven’t heard, retinol should be a go-to for those looking to rid their skin of acne, dark spots, wrinkles and other imperfections. But because retinol is such a skincare super star, it doesn’t usually come cheap — that is, until now, because Amazon is offering up a $5 off coupon on this solid LilyAna Naturals Retinol Cream Moisturizer.

It will only cost you $15 to start seeing wow-worthy skin clearing results. Just remember, this stuff is powerful, so it’s best to ease this product into your skincare routine slowly before diving face first into daily use.

Graphic: Chelsea Stone

This might be a tough puzzle to solve, but it’s an easy choice to make: Buy yourself a classic Rubik’s Cube, on sale for just $10, and enjoy hours of teeth-gritting, frustrating entertainment.
