If you have any TVs in your house without a smart dongle attached, today’s the day to fix that, as three refurbished Rokus and a refurbished 4K Fire TV are all on sale for great low prices on Amazon today.

The Roku Ultra, Roku Streaming Stick+, and Fire TV all support 4K and HDR. On the Roku side of the equation, the Ultra has a leg up on the Streaming Stick+ with its included headphone jack remote and ethernet port, but they’ll be a wash in terms of picture quality. The Fire TV obviously runs different software, and includes an Alexa remote and support for Dolby Atmos audio.

If you don’t need 4K, the standard Roku streaming stick is also on sale for $32 refurbished. But At these prices, you should probably get a 4K dongle for future-proofing purposes.


With its premium nylon construction and 6,000+ bend lifespan, Anker’s PowerLine+ run laps around Apple’s own Lightning cables, at a lower price point. For a limited time, you can get a pair of 6' cables for just $22. It’s one of the best things you’ll buy for yourself this year.

You can also get a single 10' PowerLine+ cable for $13 with code ANKER823, in the color of your choice.


ELAC F6 Floorstanding Speaker | $279 | Amazon
ELAC B5 Bookshelf Speaker Pair | $159 | Amazon
ELAC S10EQ 400W Subwoofer | $279 | Amazon

ELAC makes some of the most popular home theater gear out there, and you can pick up a pair of B5 bookshelf speakers, an F6 floorstanding speaker, or a S10EQ subwoofer for the best prices ever on Amazon today. All three pieces are from ELAC’s Debut series, which offers exceptional sound for the money, but you can of course mix and match them with speakers you’ve already collected.


Plantronics Backbeat Sense Wireless Headphones | $43 | Daily Steals | Promo code KINJABEAT

Plantronics’ BackBeat Sense wireless on-ears look great, sound great, and run for up to 18 hours on a charge; all good things. But the coolest feature here, especially at a low $43 price point, is a suite of sensors that automatically pauses your music when you take the headphones off your ears, and starts it up again once you put them back on. Use promo code KINJABEAT at checkout to save.


JackyLED 18-Outlet Vertical Power Strip | $25 | Amazon | Promo code LTC9MR54
Graphic: Shep McAllister

What were they thinking inventing this surge protector and not calling it the Power Tower? Missed marketing opportunities aside, it comes with a whopping 18 outlets, four USB ports, and its own 6.5' retractable power cord. Plus, it rotates for optimum space-saving. Get it for $25 today with promo code LTC9MR54.


Whether you need a spare card for your dash cam, your GoPro, your Switch, or anything else, this 64GB Samsung microSD card is down to its lowest price today.The gold model is down to $65 on Amazon today, an all-time low.


LG B7A 55" OLED TV | $1300 | MassDrop
LG B7A 65" OLED TV | $2000 | MassDrop

If you love inky blacks and vibrant colors—and who doesn’t?—this 55" 2017 OLED LG TV is down to $1300 today on MassDrop (about $300 less than Amazon), or an all-time low $2000 for 65" (almost $600 less!).

As you’d expect from any high-end TV these days, that gets you a 4K panel and Dolby Vision HDR, but OLED technology means the blacks will be far richer, and the colors more vibrant than any LCD-based screen you can buy. Whichever size you choose, it’ll still cost you, but your eyes will tell you it was worth it.


North Bayou Articulating Monitor Arm | $20 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

You aren’t getting the most out of your computer monitor until you put it on a fully articulating and rotating arm. This one from North Bayou can hold monitors up to 27", and even includes cable routing and a USB hub on the base that can be easier to reach than the USB ports on the back of your display. At $20, it’s an absolute steal.


DirecTV Now is one of the better over-the-top cable replacements out there, and with this deal, there’s very little reason not to give it a try.

For a limited time, if you prepay for three months of the service at $35 per month, you’ll get a 4K Apple TV included for free. That Apple TV costs $179 normally, so you’re basically getting a $74 discount on the box, plus three months of live TV. No brainer.


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.

10% off Any Order With Purchase of a Mattress | Casper | Promo code NUMBERONE
Photo: Casper

Beyond the standard $50 discounts you hear about in the middle of every podcast, Casper mattresses don’t go on sale often, and Casper accessory deals are even rarer. But this weekend only, Casper’s 10% sitewide sale holds the promise of serious savings, if you still haven’t gotten rid of that old coil spring.

Advertisement

To get this deal, you have to buy a mattress (sorry, dog mattresses don’t count), so you can’t take advantage if you’re only shopping for accessories. But 10% savings on a standard Casper mattress works out to nearly $100 on a queen, or as much as $225 on the new, advanced Wave mattress (which is going to get more expensive starting next week, so you’re basically stacking discounts). Just use promo code NUMBERONE at checkout to see the savings stack up.

The best part of the deal is that any accessories you order at the same time will be discounted as well. I’m personally a huge fan of Casper’s pillow, but they make everything from adjustable bed frames to sheets to box springs, and unlike the mattresses, those are hardly ever eligible for discounts. You have the weekend, so sleep on it if you must, but they don’t run sales like this often.


Cabeau Evolution Travel Pillow | $32 | Amazon
Cabeau Evolution Cool | $48 | Amazon
Cabeau Evo Microbead Pillow | $16 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

The Cabeau Evolution was your favorite travel pillow (by a long shot), and you can save 20% on three different versions today.

Advertisement

Unlike cheaper travel pillows that you have to inflate with air, the standard Evolution is made of memory foam, and wraps all the way around your neck to provide support no matter what direction your head falls when you nod off. You won’t win any fashion awards while you’re using it, but you won’t care, because you’ll be asleep. $32 is $8 less than usual, and you can pick any color you want.

Or, for $48 (down from $60), you can opt for the version with a built-in air vent to keep your neck cool. I don’t find it to be quite as supportive as the original, but nobody likes a sweaty neck.

If you’re on a budget, there’s also a 20% discount on the brand new Cabeau Evo. This one uses microbead fill instead of memory foam. I haven’t tried it, but I imagine it’s not quite as comfortable as memory foam, and it definitely won’t compress for easy packing, but you can’t argue with that price.


Solar LED Patio Umbrella | $49 | Best Choice Products | Promo code BESTCHOICE3299
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Okay, this is genius. It looks just like a regular patio umbrella, and at $49, it’s priced similarly to a regular patio umbrella. But a solar panel built into the top charges a battery that powers an array of LEDs on the underside, so it can light up your patio once the sun goes down. Just use promo code BESTCHOICE3299 at checkout to save.


Wahl Pet Grooming Kit | $27 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

Let’s be honest: You probably won’t do as good a job grooming your dog as a professional might. But at $27, this Wahl clipper set costs less than a single trip to the groomer, so it might be worth learning the trade.


Hoover Power Scrub Deluxe Carpet Cleaner, $96
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you’re sick of renting carpet washers every time you spot a new stain, you can buy your own for $130 today. The Hoover Power Scrub Deluxe has a squeaky-clean 4.3 star review average from over 11,000 customers, and while this price isn’t an all-time low, it is the best deal we’ve seen this year.


RXBAR Mint Chocolate 12-Pack | $20 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you like RXBAR’s mint chocolate flavor, Amazon will ship you a dozen bars for under $20 today, if you use Subscribe & Save. Just remember to cancel after your first order, unless you want to keep receiving them (which you very well might!).


Black & Decker Dustbuster | $30 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

A good hand vacuum is just one of those things every home needs, if only for cleaning up quick messes without plugging in a full-sized vacuum, or vacuuming up car seats where a real vacuum can’t reach. This one from Black & Decker is just $30 today, the best price ever.


Lifewit Collapsible Clothes Drying Rack | $22 | Amazon | Promo code NJ4JBOD8
Graphic: Shep McAllister

We all know that hang-drying clothes is better for them in the long run than using a dryer, but it’s just such a pain to find places to hang them all. This $22 rack (with code NJ4JBOD8) looks to solve that with two tiers of drying racks, built-in clothes hangers, and a fold-up design that allows it to fit into the corner beside your washing machine when not in use.


EasyAcc Portable Fan | $7 | Amazon | Promo code G7QIHIW7
Graphic: Shep McAllister

This $7 fan has a built in battery pack, so you can use it outdoors, or fold it up and set it on your desk at work. Depending on the speed, that battery pack will last you between three and 10 hours, and since it uses USB, it’s easy to recharge in a pinch. Just be sure to use promo code G7QIHIW7 at checkout to save 50%.

If you aren’t freaked out by privacy concerns of DNA testing kits (basically, they may sell anonymized genetic data, but not personally identifiable data), the tests are getting better, and 23andMe’s are on sale today.

Both the Health + Ancestry (which now has FDA approval to test for breast cancer risk factors) and Ancestry (which is a lot more precise than it used to be) are on sale for the best prices we’ve seen since Black Friday. I probably wouldn’t buy one as a gift, but if you want to try one yourself, these are great prices.

30% off any order of $175+ | Cole Haan
Graphic: Jillian Lucas

If reliability is something you crave in a pair of shoes (if it isn’t, you may need to reconsider), I bet you have Cole Haan in your closet. And if you’re looking for a new pair but don’t want to spend the normal asking price, Cole Haan is taking 30% off any order of $175+ during their Semi-Annual Event. Plus, you’ll get free shipping on everything. Finally get a pair of ZERØGRAND’s (or the newer 2.ZERØGRAND’s) or maybe a pair of sandals for whenever the weather decides to cooperate.


Adidas sale | Nordstrom Rack
Graphic: Jillian Lucas

Now that the weather’s nice enough to exercise outdoors (or at least tell yourself that you will), Nordstrom Rack’s running a pretty solid sale on Adidas gear. Pick up new sneakers for men and women, plus apparel for men and women as well. And, don’t forget about the kids. It’s a good time to stock up on basics to throw on for the gym, or running errands.


Up to 65% off select styles | Mountain Hardwear
Graphic: Jillian Lucas

The weather is actually pretty nice right now, and Mountain Hardwear has the apparel and gear for you to enjoy it. Take up to 65% off a bunch of jackets, vests (including the awesome Ghost Whisperer Vest), and more from their Web Specials section. Use the code MHWAPR65 and checkout to get the discount. Go climb a mountain or hike a trail. Or just look like you do those things while walking the dog.

Just note that after three months, you’ll automatically renew at the standard $10 per month, so be sure to cancel your membership if you don’t want it to continue.


I know people get excited over the extended cut of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, but the theatrical version is an absolute steal at $12, and won’t require you to take a week off of work to watch it. That’s the best price we’ve seen since the holidays, when it briefly dropped to $6.


Best Gaming Deals

While you may mess up a critical plot point of an epic franchise, you can pick up this droid littleBits set and make your own R2 unit the way you want. These sets are basically like if LEGO and K’nex had a baby and added a battery. A bunch of you bought these around the holidays, but today’s price is the best Amazon’s ever listed.


4-Pack LED Shuttlecocks | $6 | Amazon

I will always post any badminton-related deal for an excuse to embed the Mary Carillo rant, which nearly 15 years later remains the zenith of all sports commentary. But seriously, LED shuttlecocks are a great idea, and these are super-cheap.


God of War [Digital] | $54 | Green Man Gaming

God of War is out today, and if you own a PS4, you should absolutely play it. If you avoided the 20% preorder discount because you prefer to buy digitally, or if you just want to be able to play it this weekend without waiting for delivery, Green Man Gaming is taking 10% off digital copies right now.
