The best VPN, according to our readers here on The Inventory, is Private Internet Access. To pay forward the support they saw in our respective Co-Op two short years ago, they’re offering 3 extra months FREE with the purchase of a 1-year sub.

Their high favorability among readers across the Giz/Onion (that’s what G/O stands for!) network is evident. In 2014, Private Internet Access topped off Lifehacker’s Hive Five list of the best VPNs on the market. Four years later, our readers voted the same way.

Though closed-source VPNs have sparked controversy over the years, PIA has set itself apart as a trailblazer in the space. Now go ahead and start following internet privacy best practices today so you can browse and stream worry-free in your extra time spent at home.

You never know how long we’ll be stuck at home; in the meantime, play it safe and subscribe for a year to snap up your freebie while the deal’s still active.

If you have learned anything about me, dear readers, it’s that I don’t have room for shit. My room is small, my desk is small, and I have to throw headsets and controllers on the wall like I’m some kind of nerd (well, I am a nerd, but that’s besides the point). Finding a place where my power strips and surge protectors where my cat won’t knock into them is a challenge as well, but that’s where this funky looking surge protector comes in.

This six-plug, 4 USB power strip can cling to the side of your desk with its shape and clip on the inside, which means you can plug in all of your computer stuff and some chargers, then get the bulky wire mess out of the way. It’s much better than my solution to duct-tape my power strip to the back of the desk, at least.

$200 Gift Card With Apple iPhone SE Purchase | Visible

Apple’s new iPhone SE, which goes on sale today, is already a great deal at $400 for 64GB of storage in a pocketable phone with great specs. But for anyone looking to save a bit more cash, you can get an extra $200 off if you buy your phone from Visible, through the form of a $200 online MasterCard gift card.

Advertisement

As of right now, it looks like the only options through Visible are the 128 and 256 GB models, which will cost you about $430 and $530, respectively. Still, the gift card can save you a bit of cash, if you have the money to spend upfront.

Hey, you. Are you looking for an excellent pair of wireless earbuds that cost less than a suburban lunch? We already loved the BT Transfer by Status Audio when they debuted at $69, so we were floored when we saw they’ve dropped to $20.

Advertisement

They’re not true wireless, but you do get a pair of stringed buds with reliable Bluetooth 5.0 aptX audio, IPX5 water resistance, and eight-hour battery life. Each pair comes with four different size options for the ear tips and fins, so even if you have a couple of Grand Canyons flanking your face like I do, you shouldn’t have any comfort issues.

Klipsch is celebrated for its long history of providing top-notch audio equipment, having built its name on solid studio recording equipment and premium headphones. You can add wireless speakers to that list with products like The Three II, which normally goes for the Klipsch-appropriate price tag of $574, but if you act quickly, you can catch a rare discount down to $250 (there’s also a Matte Black model), no promo code needed.

The Three II features an abundance of input options to cover any need you could have, including Bluetooth, 3.5mm auxiliary, USB, and Wi-Fi. The lattermost brings one of The Three II’s best features—wireless multiroom audio. With it, you can pair the speaker up with any others in Klipsch’s entire multiroom-capable family to spread good vibes throughout the home. The speaker also has voice control through Alexa (separate device required, like the Echo Dot).

Bee-tee-dubs, in case you can’t tell, The Three II is not a portable speaker. It’s a tabletop unit meant to be used in the home—perhaps the antique design with its physical nobs and switches gives that away—and you’ll need a power outlet to use it.

There is nothing worse on a road trip than your phone battery running out. If you don’t have a fancy car with USB ports built in, you might be struggling when the phone starts telling you the battery is low. The Qidoe Car Charger can make sure you won’t have this problem again, with two USB ports and a USB Type-C port. It also has additional lighter slots built in, just in case you were using the car lighter to power something else. It’s a pretty good deal at $14 on Amazon, so grab this while it lasts!

My roommates and I don’t like paying too much on utilities, so we keep the house at 76 degrees, as recommended by our power company. That’s all fine and good during the day, but I find myself burning up when I head to bed. My puny fan doesn’t really help, so I need a more direct method to cool down. That’s where the ChiliPAD comes in.

The ChiliPAD sleep system comes with a mattress pad that cools you down, as well as a “thermal regulating control unit”, which sounds extremely fancy. You can get the ChiliPAD and cool down your bed for $150 off when you use the code sleepretreat at checkout. That brings a one-person ChiliPAD for a queen bed down to $350! Now go and get some quality sleep, for me.

Need a handle of vodka sent to your door in the next 2 hours? Who doesn’t! For our NYC-based readers, Vodka Mariette is offering 15% off both subscriptions and one-time purchases using the coupon code KINJA15. Now I’ve tried it myself (in fact, I treated myself to a Vodka Mariette soda last night while cooking dinner) and I’ll say, it goes down real smooth. Too smooth almost. But in these desperate times, we all need a little something to take the edge off.

Vodka Mariette is 5x distilled AND GMO-free, plus they promise delivery in under 2 hours for anyone living in Manhattan or Brooklyn. I ordered recently to our studio downtown and can attest to the expeditious pace. Sadly, cities outside of NYC are missing out on this deal—but worry not—a rep at Vodka Mariette told me they’re planning on expanding the service very soon. Tip your driver and drink responsibly.

You’ve already cleaned your home with all the free time you’ve gained, I’m sure, and if you’re anything like Jolie, you’ve also been rage cleaning, just because. At this point, any further efforts to clean can only be seen as a desperate, cryptic cry for some sort of help. After you’ve resolved your internal conflict and made a full return to normalcy, let someone else do the job. It could be your kids, but not all of us have them, and barring expensive nanny care, a eufy RoboVac just might be the next best thing. The BoostIQ RoboVac 11S is just $150, but only when using the exclusive promo code KINJAEUFY at Amazon.

Right now, you can get a Google Nest Mini—formerly Google Home Mini—for $29 at B&H Photo. That’s a $20 discount from its usual price. It’s a small little thing that most certainly won’t blow the roof of a house party, but if all you need it for is Google Assistant commands, then this is all the money you need to spend.

Just plug it in, apply two vials of serum per day, and voilà, you’re golden (but your teeth aren’t!).

If there’s one constant in life, it’s that there’s a Kindle Store sale going on. This weekend, you can save on some reader favorites and add to your ever-growing book backlog, all for under $5 a book.

There is something that strikes me about this sale, though. The reader favorites cover a variety of genres, sure, but there is... a lot of self-help books. The very first book on this list is Tiny Habits: The Small Changes That Change Everything, and looking through the sale’s eight pages reveals more self-help books like Mistakes Were Made (but Not by Me) and The Deepest Well: Healing the Long-Term Effects of Childhood Adversity. In short, y’all need help, and these books have one of the many, many answers available to you. Which is great! It’s not like therapy is affordable to everyone.

ComiXology is having a sale for the next week and calling it a discount on ‘Black Widow’ books. But there are none in the collection. ::shrugs:: However, one of my favorite Marvel comics of all time is and Natasha plays a very big part. Ed Brubaker’s run with the Winter Soldier is probably a top-three thing in the history of graphic novels for me. He takes such good care of Bucky by my standards. In The Longest Winter, Bucky teams up with Black Widow to uncover a slew of ex-Russian sleeper agents who have been re-activated. Butch Guice does some beautiful things with the art in the action sequences too. All four volumes are included in the sale and I can’t recommend these enough. If you’ve ever been curious about Bucky, Natasha, and even Clint (Hawkeye) this is a great place to start. Cursory knowledge should be fine.

Also in the sale is a hodge-podge of Secret Avengers books. I do really like what Warren Ellis did with this series. But my hat’s off to Ales Kot who really takes this book to new places in all three volumes. He does some fun things with Clint and Natasha plus I love the way Michael Walsh draws the Widow. Even the title of the first book tells you all, Let’s Have a Problem. Where our beloved heroes deal with three crises at once. Of all the options in this series, you can’t go wrong with this one.

Now is as good a time as any to make new friends around the world, and unless your idea of a good time is deciphering cryptic codecs—because that’s exactly what it feels like with Google Translate sometimes—learning a new language might be something you’re into. Rosetta Stone licenses are heavily discounted today for anyone up for the challenge, including a lifetime license for $200 (down from $300). You can also put up $96 for 12 months of unlimited access, and $144 for two years. (But let’s be real: you’ll probably need more than two years.)

You’re getting full access to learn more than 24 of the world’s most common and popular languages, including Mandarin, French, German, Japanese, Greek, and even Hebrew. I can tell you from experience that the single most useful thing you can take on an international vacation is at least basic knowledge of the local language, so be sure to start practicing now for that post-quarantine trip you’ve had to put off.

You’ll get five remastered movies in the bundle:

As a Reinhardt main who relies on cunning instinct and ballsy energy to rack up eliminations, I always die a little inside when new (read: fookin’ overpowered) Overwatch characters like Echo come out. They just make my guy look like a complete scrub. You can either beat ‘em or join ‘em, and for a better chance at success in either endeavor, you should be playing on more than just Joy-Cons. That’s why this PowerA wireless controller for the Nintendo Switch is perfect with its Overwatch skin. Reaper is front and center here, which may not be ideal if you have the same PTSD I do from hearing his ult pop off, but HEY: the controller is only $37, so we’ll just have to deal with it.

Team Ninja seems to have released yet another banger in Nioh 2, the souls-like action RPG that only knows PS4 as its home. If you’ve exhausted your backlog and looking for something new to play, you can pick the special edition up at Amazon right now for $11 off, or a final total of $69.

The special edition comes with a few extra niceties for the few extra dollars they’re requiring, including a steelbook case, an art book, and the season pass that’ll presumably put you in line for all the DLC that release down the road.

Advertisement

Here’s how Heather Alexandra at Kotaku starts off in her long evaluative look at Nioh 2:

The Dark Souls formula is tried and true. It’s been adapted into science fiction settings, placed into 2D, and refined time and time again. 2017’s Nioh is arguably the most successful spin on the genre, adding flashy combat and the turbulent politics of medieval Japan. Nioh 2 is an improvement on every front. There’s no other way of saying it: I’ve never played a game where fighting feels as good as this.

We were supposed to be playing Cyberpunk 2077 right around this time, but like the good studio it is, CD Projekt Red delayed the game until September 17 to polish up. There are far too many games to play to still be upset about that, but if you’ve been jonesing for Cyberpunk 2077, perhaps this pre-order deal will make you feel a bit better. Amazon is offering the game for $50 today (PS4 and PC, too), and it’ll arrive at your doorstep on launch day.

Besame has had some beautiful collaborations with Disney over the years and this tribute to the mouse of the house is no different. The two shades are inspired by the black and white art that brought the steamboat captain to life in the 1930s. It’s the perfect way to still feel apart of the Magic Kingdom while the parks are closed.

The black shade (Ink & Paint) is actually a blackberry color and berry flavored. This is a shade that works with your personal pH to give you a totally unique purple-ish shade. Mickey Red is a strawberry tone/flavor taken directly from the rascally rodent’s pants and shoes. Both are marked down to $15 from $24.

As always each tube is gorgeously constructed with art lifted right from the dawn of Disney. No code needed for the discounts. And there’s free shipping on all orders over $50.

With gyms and yoga studios being closed for the foreseeable future, it’s easy to feel antsy and miss your usual workout routine.

Sure, you get a new Lightning cable every time you get a new iPhone, but they aren’t very durable and they’re too short to give you much room to move around when your phone’s plugged in. You could just keep replacing them with new cables every time one breaks, but that gets pricey, and buying a more durable cable can save you the hassle. Right now, you can get any of Nomad’s Kevlar cables for 10% off through May 1.

There’s plenty of options to choose from, with Lightning cables that plug into USB-C or USB-A ports, as well as universal and USB-C cables, all of which come in 1.5m and 3m configurations, so your gadgets will never have to stray too far from a little juice.

Listen, sometimes your space doesn’t smell as great as you would like it. It might not even be anything that you did, but these air purifying bags can help. They’re only $14 with a promo code, and come in a pack of eight, so you can spread them throughout your apartment or house for some sweet-smelling relief. But how do they even work? Well, the charcoal basically absorbs bad-smelling particles in the air, while at the same time, releasing a nice smell from the open, mesh fabric. You can reuse these for up to two years, depending on how bad your closet, car, or bathroom smells. Do what you gotta do and snatch ‘em before they’re gone!
