BEST TECH DEAL

Anker Wireless Earphones Soundcore | $65 | Amazon | Uses code SDCLBT66

Anker has a new, less expensive version of its excellent true wireless headphone line, and you can grab a set for just $65 today with promo code SDCLBT66.

Like the original Liberty headphones, the Liberty Lites will run for 3.5 hours on a charge untethered - the main difference is that the included charging case only holds an extra 9 hours worth of battery, vs. 24 hours for the Liberty, and 48 for the Liberty+. Still though, that’s enough for a day’s worth of use in almost any situation, and the case is noticeably more pocket friendly, which was one of my least favorite aspects of the original models.


Anker PowerCore Speed 10000 | $28 | Amazon | Promo code KINJAQC6
Anker PowerCore+ 26800 QC 3.0 Battery Pack | $69 | Amazon | Promo code KINJAQC4
Graphic: Shep McAllister

I know Anker runs a lot of discounts, but battery packs are the product line that brought the company to prominence, and they don’t seem to go on sale as often as they used to. This week though, our readers can save 20% on two different models.

The PowerCore Speed 10000 is really the Goldilocks battery, in my opinion. Small enough to fit in most pockets, but with enough power for at least two or three full phone charges. This model also includes Quick Charge 3.0, so your compatible Android phone won’t need to stay plugged in for long to get plenty of juice. Get it for $28 with promo code KINJAQC6;

For anyone who spends days at a time away from a wall outlet, the PowerCore+ 26800 is for you. This model doesn’t include USB-C like Anker’s other battery pack of this size, but it does include Quick Charge 3.0 input and output, and comes with a QC wall charger, so you can juice the battery back up more quickly. Get a nice $69 deal with promo code KINJAQC4.


Sony CarPlay/Android Auto Head Unit | $348 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Want to try out Apple CarPlay or Android Auto without...buying a new car? This aftermarket Sony head unit is marked down to $348 today, and can be installed in any double-DIN dash opening on your existing vehicle.


Roku Streaming Stick+ | $54 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

The Roku Streaming Stick+ packs more features than you’d ever think was possible in such a small dongle. You get 4K, HDR, advanced Wi-Fi, a voice remote, basically anything else you could want in a larger streaming box. Amazon has it for just $54 today, which isn’t an all-time low, but it is $10-$15 less than usual.


Football season is just around the corner, and you can watch a ton of college games, plus local NFL games and Sunday Night football for free with a cheap HDTV antenna. AmazonBasics’ leaf-style antenna is on sale for just $13 today, if you don’t already own one. I use the amplified version myself, and it’s great, but this unamplified antenna won’t have quite as much range. If you need help deciding Lifehacker has a guide to help you out.


Elevation Lab CordDock | $30 | Amazon | Promo code KINJADOCK
GIF: Elevation Lab

Elevation Lab makes some of the best iPhone docks money can buy, and its latest creation, the CordDock, is on sale for the first time ever with our exclusive KINJADOCK promo code.

Advertisement

Docking an iPhone is usually a binary experience. It’s docked, and plugged in. Or it’s undocked, and not plugged in. But the CordDock reveals an in-between space, allowing you to undock your phone without unplugging it. That means you can use it for a few minutes while charging, then set it back on the dock when you’re done. Just pull up to fully undock (micro suction keeps the base on your table), or pull forward to keep the cable attached to your phone. And yes, it includes the extra long braided Lightning cable. Use code KINJADOCK to get it for $30.


Audio Technica ATH-M40X Headphones | $79 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Audio Technica’s venerable ATH-M40x headphones (along with their larger M50x sibling) are our readers’ favorite wired headphones, and you can try on a pair for $79 right now, about $20 less than usual.


Samsung U3 32GB MicroSD Card | $12 | Amazon
Samsung U3 64GB MicroSD Card | $18 | Amazon
Sandisk Ultra 200GB Micro | $56 | Amazon
Samsung U3 128GB MicroSD Card | $35 | Amazon
Samsung 256GB MicroSD Card | $90 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Update: All of these deals are still available, and still excellent, but we’ll add a mention of this 200GB SanDisk (a capacity that Samsung doesn’t offer) for $56. It was cheaper on Prime Day, but otherwise, that’s a very good deal.

Samsung’s U3-rated microSD cards are some of the fastest and most popular options out there—I have the 128GB model in my own Nintendo Switch—and all four sizes are down to new all-time low prices today on Amazon. If you need extra space for your action cam, smartphone, tablet, Switch, or anything else, these are extremely good deals


Roav by Anker Bluetooth Receiver | $16 | Amazon | Promo code ROAVB288
Photo: Anker

You don’t need to buy a new car, or even a new stereo to get Bluetooth streaming and hands-free calls in your older vehicle. You just need $16, an AUX jack, and an extra USB port. Use promo code ROAVB288 to save on this Anker Roav Bluetooth receiver, which includes a built-in mic.


Mokcao Speaker Base For Echo Dot | $20 | Amazon | Promo code 6IKR8BVE
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Amazon’s Echo Dot is a great voice assistant, and a truly terrible speaker. But for just $20 (with promo code 6IKR8BVE), you can drop it into this speaker base, which replaces its puny 3W driver with a stereo pair of booming 10W drivers. Plus, the built-in 5,000mAh battery pack lets you move it all around your house, and even doubles as a smartphone charger.

Note, the black one doesn’t have a ton of Amazon reviews, but you can read some more impressions on the white model’s product page.


Aukey HDMI Switch | $11 | Amazon | Promo code AUKEY004
Photo: Amazon

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 $11 HDMI switcher will have to do. It basically turns one port into two, switches between devices at the press of a button. Just use promo code AUKEY004 at checkout to get it for $11.


VPNs have been in the news, and whether you want to get around video geoblocks, circumvent proxy filters, or just keep prying eyes out of your browsing data while using sketchy public Wi-Fi, reader-favorite Private Internet Access has a deal to fit your needs.

Last month, they offered our readers $10 off two year memberships, but this time around, you get a few more choices, ranging from a quick taste of the service to an extended commitment with additional savings:

These deals are only for our readers, but we aren’t sure how long they’ll be available, so go ahead and sign up while you can.

BEST HOME DEALS

Cuisinart Cast Iron Gold Box | Amazon
Screenshot: Amazon

Update: Sold out

As far as I’m concerned, an enameled dutch oven is right up there with a good knife and great spatula in the hierarchy of must-own kitchen gear, and a couple of Cuisinart’s iconic models are on sale in today’s Amazon Gold Box, along with a 12" chicken fryer.

Advertisement

These things are on approximately 99% of all wedding registries, so even if you already own one yourself, they could make great gifts. These prices are only available today though, so don’t let this deal simmer for too long.


Philips Hue Smart Dimmer Switch + Bulb | $28 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

As nice as it is to control your lights with your phone, or even with your voice, sometimes an old fashioned light switch still presents the path or least resistance. Luckily, Philips makes one for its Hue bulbs; you just stick it to your wall (no wiring required), program it to control up to 10 lights, and hit the buttons to turn your bulbs on or off, or even dim them.

Advertisement

Today on Amazon, you can get the switch and a Hue White bulb for $28, or only about $4-$5 more than the usual price of the switch by itself.


Smart plugs are the gateway drug to home automation, and TP-Link’s model with energy monitoring is down to $30 for a two-pack right now, the best per-switch price we’ve ever seen. These switches add smartphone and Alexa control to any power outlet, and unlike some less expensive models, they’ll also tell you how much electricity is running through them so you can identify what’s running up your power bill.


AmazonBasics Digital Luggage Scale | $6 | Amazon
Graphic: Erica Offutt

Chronic over-packers, this deal is for you. You probably have a bathroom scale at home that works just fine for weighing luggage when you’re leaving town, but this hanging luggage scale is small enough to take with you, so you can figure out the right combination of bags to carry all those heavy souvenirs back home. It normally would set you back $10, but is just $6 today.


Char-Broil TRU Gas Grill | $349 | Walmart
Photo: Amazon

Char-Broil’s Signature TRU gas grill uses infrared grates to distribute heat more evenly while preventing flare-ups, and beyond that trick, it’s just a really good gas grill. You get a 13,000 BTU side burner, 420 square inches of cooking surface with a 155 square inch warming tray, and a handsome brushed chrome exterior. It’s $50 off at Walmart right now, with plenty of time left in the summer for barbecues.


The Claw | $19 | Malboro & Kane | Use code KINJADEALS

The Claw claims to be the world’s smallest multitool, and there’s really no reason to doubt it. Roughly the same length as a penny, the little piece of titanium can open bottles and paint cans, turn screws, wedge open key rings, remove staples, and most critically of all, open up boxes that you ordered from Kinja Deals. Get it for $19 today (down from $29) with our exclusive promo code KinjaDeals.


Brother P-touch Easy-to-Use Label Maker | $20 | Amazon
Graphic: Erica Offutt

You’re not going to use a label maker everyday, or even every week, but it can really help keep all your stuff organized. This Brother P-touch is new and improved and has more features, fonts, and preset templates than the one we normally post, and this one can save up to 30 labels for quick re-prints. Typically around $30, $20 is a great price for this.


SimpleTaste Electric Foam Milk Frother | $9 | Amazon
Image: Amazon

Do you need to have frothed milk every time you make espresso at home? I would think so. And if you’re on the same page, this $9 handheld, battery-operated whisk will help make any boring cup of espresso into a café-worthy beverage.


Car Headrest Tablet Mount | $8 | Amazon | Use code MOUNT888
Graphic: Erica Offutt

Keep your backseat passengers entertained with this car headrest tablet and phone mount. It snaps into the metal bars in the headrest and can hold most tablets and phones. Use code MOUNT888 to get it for just $8.


Aukey Night Light, $13 with code AUKEYL33

Aukey made an orb of light that you can take anywhere, and it’s only $13 today with promo code AUKEYL33. The light can sit on your table, hang from above, stick to any magnetic surface, and even float in the pool while putting out five hours of light at max brightness with its built-in battery. Oh, it’s also an RGB lamp, so you can change its color too.


Peak Design Travel Line | Kickstarter
GIF: YouTube

Peak Design, maker of our readers’ favorite camera bags, is diving headfirst into the travel market, and you can save on its entire new travel line by backing it on Kickstarter.

Advertisement

Consisting of a backpack, a tech cube, a toiletry cube, packing cubes, and specialty camera cubes, you can mix and match various parts of the line depending on your needs for any given trip.

The thing that really sets the system apart is the backpack’s flexibility. You can unzip it from the back, the front, the top, or even the side while it’s dangling on one shoulder. You can carry it like a backpack, like a suitcase, or slip it over your luggage handle. The optional cubes are designed to fit snugly inside the backpack without any wasted space, and a small outer compartment can hold some additional flat items like clothing and documents. You can also unzip an expansion zipper to increase the backpack’s capacity from 45L to 55L, and even remove the divider between the compartments to use it as one big-ass duffel bag. It really is a bag for all occasions.

We’ve been fans of Peak Design for awhile now, and one thing that stands out about their products, besides the fact that they’re universally excellent, is that they hardly ever go on sale. So while this Kickstarter isn’t expected to ship rewards until December, you stand to save over 20% by backing it early. Trust us, once the travel line comes out, you’ll be waiting a long time for another deal that good.


20% off Laundry Essentials | Amazon

No matter your favorite flavor of Tide Pod, it’s probably discounted with today’s 20% off coupon on Amazon.

These require you to Subscribe & Save, but you can cancel your subscription at any time after the first order ships. There’s also a Gain Flings option included in the sale, but let’s be honest, that’s like a Newman-O to Tide’s Oreos.


3-Pack OxyLED Stick-Anywhere Lights | $20 | Amazon | Promo code TBONOM9A

OxyLED’s motion-sensing T-02 lights are perfect for lighting up dark closets and cabinets without running any wires, and you can get a three-pack with rechargeable batteries for $20 today with promo code TBONOM9A.


Eufy Lumos Smart Bulb | $13 | Amazon

We’ve seen several deals recently on Anker’s hub-free smart light bulbs, but today’s discount is the best single-bulb price we’ve seen.

Advertisement

This particular bulb can’t display the full RGB spectrum like a Philips Hue lamp, or even different temperatures of white, but you can control and dim it from your phone, or with an Alexa or Google Assistant device, no hub required. And at $13 each, you can afford to put them all around your home.


Refurb Dyson V6 Animal | $160 | eBay

The Dyson V6 cordless vacuum is ideal for cleaning rugs, hardwood floors, car seats, ceilings, shelves...pretty much anything really, and you can get a refurb of the Animal version on Dyson’s eBay outlet today for $160, about $120 less than buying it new. Compared to the standard V6, this model has 75% more brush head power to lift pet hair and other debris out of carpets and furniture.

Advertisement

I bought this thing last year ago because I bought a dark couch, and was horrified to find out how much pet hair it collected. It’s a good vacuum. A very good vacuum.

If only the best will do, the even more powerful Dyson V10 Motorhead is also on sale for an all-time low $449 brand new, or $50 less than usual. Dyson is famously no longer developing corded vacuums, because this one is so damn good.


70-Count Cascade Platinum Plus Dishwasher Tabs | $14 | Amazon | After $5 off coupon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

You need dishwasher tabs anyway, so you might as well get them on sale. Clip the $5 coupon and use Subscribe & Save to get 70 Cascade Platinum Plus+ tabs delivered from Amazon for just $14. Just remember to cancel the subscription if you don’t want to keep receiving them.


Snack Sample Box | $10 | Amazon | Plus $10 credit towards a future snack purchase
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Update: Back in stock!

If you missed it during its brief window of availability earlier this month, Amazon’s snack sample box up for order, and it’s basically free.

Advertisement

Spend $10 to get eight or more snack samples to munch on, and then use the included $10 credit to buy more of your favorites. The exact contents of the box will vary, but RXBARS cost about $2 each at the store, and it seems like you’ll get a nice mix of healthy options and indulgent junk food.

The largest of the three annual sales Nordstrom runs, the Anniversary Sale discounts thousands of fall and winter styles way before they make it into brick and mortar Nordstrom stores.

Seed to Harvest: The Complete Patternist Series | $4 | Amazon
Graphic: Erica Offutt

Add the complete The Patternist series to you Kindle for $4 today. If you’re unfamiliar, this series was written by one of science fiction’s greatest authors, Octavia E. Butler, who also wrote the soon-to-be Netflix show, Dawn, and the must-read Kindred.

In the late seventeenth century, two immortals meet in an African forest. Anyanwu is a healer, a three-hundred-year-old woman who uses her wisdom to help those around her. The other is Doro, a malevolent despot who has mastered the power of stealing the bodies of others when his wears out. Together they will change the world.

Over the next three centuries, Doro mounts a colossal selective breeding project, attempting to create a master race of telepaths. He succeeds beyond his wildest dreams, splitting the human race down the middle and establishing a new world order dominated by the most manipulative minds on Earth.

In these four novels, award-winning author Octavia E. Butler tells the classic story that began her legendary career: a mythic tale of the transformation of civilization.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Octavia E. Butler including rare images from the author’s estate.

Snow Crash [Kindle] | $2 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

1992's Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson is one of Cyberpunk’s defining texts, and an all-too-familiar send-up of modern capitalism. Download it straight to your Kindle for just $2 today.

From Amazon:

From the opening line of his breakthrough cyberpunk novel Snow Crash, Neal Stephenson plunges the reader into a not-too-distant future. It is a world where the Mafia controls pizza delivery, the United States exists as a patchwork of corporate-franchise city-states, and the Internet—incarnate as the Metaverse—looks something like last year’s hype would lead you to believe it should. Enter Hiro Protagonist—hacker, samurai swordsman, and pizza-delivery driver. When his best friend fries his brain on a new designer drug called Snow Crash and his beautiful, brainy ex-girlfriend asks for his help, what’s a guy with a name like that to do? He rushes to the rescue. A breakneck-paced 21st-century novel, Snow Crash interweaves everything from Sumerian myth to visions of a postmodern civilization on the brink of collapse. Faster than the speed of television and a whole lot more fun, Snow Crash is the portrayal of a future that is bizarre enough to be plausible.ilable to new subscribers only.

BEST GAMING DEALS

These 3/4 sized Arcade1Up arcade cabinets were supposed to cost $399 each, and indeed, that’s what GameStop is charging for preorders. But ever since last night, Walmart’s only been asking for $299. We aren’t sure if it’s a mistake (in which case your order stands to possibly be canceled) or intentional, but if you’ve got the space and the love for old arcade games, these things look amazing.

Advertisement

Update: GameStop has lowered its price to $300 as well, so maybe Arcade1Up changed its mind on the MSRP. The good news is that your orders aren’t likely to be canceled!


Bayonetta [Steam] | $6 | Chrono.gg

If you have $6 and a decent PC, go buy Bayonetta from Chrono.gg. Unlike the Switch version, it’ll run in 4K at up to 60 FPS, but this deal is only available unti noon ET tomorrow, so just do it!


1 Year Xbox Live Gold | $40 | Microsoft
3 Month Xbox Game Pass | $10 | Microsoft
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Update: Only two days left!

In case you missed it in the wake of Prime Day, Microsoft is currently running some of the best deals ever on Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass, its Netflix for video games. Both deals expire at the end of the month.

Advertisement

The former is $20 off, down to $40, which is about as cheap as it ever gets these days. The latter is just $10 for a three month subscription, which is what you’d normally pay for a single month. Both subscriptions will auto-renew at the regular prices though, so don’t forget to cancel if you don’t wish to continue.


The days of $40 PlayStation Plus sales are mostly behind us, so if your membership is set to expire soon, you may want to pick up another year for $47, or over 20% below retail.

Xbox owners, there’s an even better deal available for you right now.


Humble Monthly | Humble
Graphic: Humble

Humble Monthly remains one of the best deals in gaming, and the latest month’s early access titles include The Escapists 2, A Hat in Time, and Conan Exiles. Plus, more unannounced games will unlock on August 3 for all subscribers. As always, Humble Monthly is only $12 per month (or $11 if you prepay for a full year), and every game you get is yours to keep forever, even if you cancel.
