TODAY’S BEST TECH DEALS

RAVPower File Hub and Hootoo USB-C Dongle Sale | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

If you’re doing any sort of traveling this summer, today’s Gold Box has your name written all over it. Amazon’s lowering the price on RAVPower File Hub and Hootoo USB-C Dongles, for Prime members for one day only.

The RAVPower file hubs are basically the standard in terms of portable routers. These can convert those hotel room Ethernet connection into WiFi and serve as an file hub. If you go for either option over $20, you’ll also get to use it as a battery pack with 6700mAh of juice.

And if you have one of those new MacBooks with the too few IO ports, Amazon’s also dropping the price on a USB-C hub, in silver or gray. This particular dongle includes a USB-C pass-through port, an HDMI port, an SD card reader, and three of USB 3.0 ports for your accessories.


Anker Surge Protector | $26 | Amazon

Anker makes surge protectors now, which is...incredibly logical. Their newest, largest model is down to $27 today, or about $8 less than usual. The PowerPort Power Strip includes 12 AC outlets and (naturally) three USB ports, plus a flat, swiveling plug that fits nicely behind your furniture. Surge protectors actually wear out over time, so if you haven’t replaced yours in awhile, this is a good opportunity.


Our desks have limited real estate and Twelve South’s PowerPic respects that and bundles the utility of a Qi charger with the the wholesome look of a picture frame. Right now, Amazon’s selling it for $53, about a dollar off the lowest price we’ve ever seen.

This particular charger can house a 5x7 image and outputs 10W to devices that support it. But just a heads up, this unit doesn’t come with a wall adapter. So you’ll need something to connect the cable to the wall.

If the PowerPic doesn’t float your boat, Amazon’s also discounting a few other Twelve South devices, including a $11 HiRise charging stand and $20 off a Bookarc for the MacBook.


HyperX Memory Sale | Amazon

If you already have an SSD but are still looking to eek out a bit more speed from your computer, you’re in luck. Right now, Amazon is discounting two sets of HyperX RAM sticks, both at their lowest prices this year. Upgrade your laptop to 16GB of RAM or add 8GBs more RAM to a desktop for the lowest prices we’ve seen this year.

RAM enables you to multitask like a pro, letting you have more tabs open at once and can help open up large files more quickly.


Refurb Libratone Zipp Wi-Fi Bluetooth Smart Speaker (Various Colors) | $100 | Woot
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Despite being a few years old, the Libratone Zipp offers a ton of stuff you’d want from a speaker in 2019, and a refurbished model will cost you just $100 today.

With a 12-hour playtime, Airplay 2, 360 degree sound and rich bass, the Libratone Zipp can also be taken on the road, with an 10 hour battery life. Woot’s current deal is for a refurbished model and offers a 90-day Libratone Warranty.

It’s never a bad idea to have batteries on hand, and today, you can pick up a pack of 48 AAs from Energizer for just $15. That’s one powerful discount.

TODAY’S BEST HOME DEALS

Traeger Renegade Pro Pellet Grill | $490 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

My parents bought a Traeger grill a couple years ago, and holy crap it’s cool. You pour wood pellets (there a ton of different kinds) into the container on the left side of the grill, select the temperature you want, and the grill feeds the pellets into a heating element at whatever speed is necessary to maintain that exact temperature. The result is smokey deliciousness with the ease of using an oven.

The Renegade Pro model gives you 380 square inches of cooking space, and $490 is a whopping $260 less than usual. Just remember to invite me over the first time you use it to smoke a brisket.

Smart Home Special Buy of the Day | Home Depot

If your home isn’t as brainy as you’d like it to be, Home Depot’s Special Buy of the Day today is full of smart home gear to automate your daily drudgery.

Just remember that these prices are only available today, so don’t wait for the deal to reboot.


WeMo Mini Smart Plug | $18 | Amazon

WeMo smart switches are basically the atomic unit of home automation, and you can pick one up for just $18 today, the best price we’ve seen outside of Black Friday.

Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Track your dog’s whereabouts with this $40 Tractive 3G GPS tracker. This lightweight, waterproof device promises to give you “real-time location of your furry friend,” and it can be shared with your family and friends just in case your pal gets lost.

This $40 price is the lowest we’ve ever seen on this model, but just note that it’s not a one-time purchase. Service plans start at $5/month, and if your pupper is especially rambunctious, that’s well worth the price.

This discount will only last until the end of the day, so pick up this highly-rated juicer now.


CLIF Bar White Chocolate Macadamia (12 Count) | $6 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Right now, you can get a 12-pack of Clif energy bars for $.50 a bar if you’re cool with white chocolate macadamia. I mean... for $6, it’s worth a shot, right? (I bought two packs, lol.)

Deals You May Have Missed

Dr. Dan’s CortiBalm 3-Pack | $14 | Amazon
Photo: Chelsea Stone

Dr. Dan’s CortiBalm isn’t just any old lip balm. No, it includes hydrocortisone, which makes all the difference in the world.

Here’s what Chelsea had to say about it on The Inventory:

What sets Dr. Dan’s CortiBalm apart from other lip balms is the fact that it contains 1% hydrocortisone — a pretty standard of dose of an anti-inflammatory topical steroid that’s in a lot of anti-itch creams that you can buy over the counter at the pharmacy — along with a hypoallergenic blend of beeswax, petroleum jelly, mineral oil. And that’s it. No other chemicals or potential irritants. Dr. Dan’s claims to be the only lip balm on the market that’s imbued with the medicinal gift that is hydrocortisone, and let me tell you, it makes a big difference when it comes to healing your lips in the long run, as opposed to just providing a temporary fix.

Today on Amazon, you can pick up three tubes for $14, which isn’t a huge discount from the usual $15-$16, but it’s the best price we’ve seen in a while.


Sport-Brella XL | $50 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Bar none, Sport-Brella is the ultimate beach umbrella, and Amazon’s discounting the red and blue XL models to just $50 today, the best price we’ve seen since last year.

Unlike a regular umbrella, Sport-Brella leans backwards and attaches to the sand with stakes, creating a kind of semi-private cocoon with enough space for a couple of chairs and a cooler. Best of all, it sets up in about five minutes (once you know what you’re doing), and can provide a full day’s worth of privacy and sun protection.


Wilton Perfect Results Non-Stick Donut Pan | $13 | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Do not miss out on your chance to become a donut chef. With this non-stick pan—now on sale for $13—you can whip up a batch of 20 donuts at a time in the flavors of your choosing. Just be sure to buy yours before this deal gets eaten up.

LG 49" Class 8 Series Ulta HD Smart Series NanoCell TV | $647 | Walmart

You can get the LG 49" Class 8 Series Ulta HD Smart Series NanoCell TV for $647 (which is $150 off). But if you’re looking for something a bit bigger, the 55" model is $747 and the Class 9 Series 55" model is $997.


SanDisk 1TB Ultra SSD | $110 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Nope, it’s not a mistake: This is a 1TB SSD for $110 and one of the cheapest we’ve ever seen on an SSD with that much space, especially from a name brand like SanDisk. If you still have a PC lying around with a spinning hard drive, do yourself a favor and pick this up, or turn it into a DIY external SSD on the cheap.


ZonLi Cooling Weighted Blanket, 15 Pounds, 48" x 72" | $44 | Amazon | Promo code 20KRHVTT

Do you spend most of your summer sleeping under your top sheet, rather than using a blanket or comforter? It is just too hot to have something so thick on top of you.

You can get a 48" x 72" ZonLi Cooling Weighted Blanket for only $44 on Amazon when you use the promo code 20KRHVTT.

ThermoWorks Thermapen (Blue and Red colors only) | $59 | ThermoWorks
Photo: ThermoWorks

If you want to invest in your cooking, a good meat thermometer isn’t far behind a good knife in the hierarchy of important gear. And today, you can score a rare discount on the best thermometer out there. In fact, $59 is cheaper than the last open-box deal we saw on this thing.

Our readers love the Thermapen because it displays the temperature in 2 - 3 seconds, has a 3,000 hour battery, is waterproof, and is accurate to within 0.7°F.

Here are just a few readers gushing over the Classic model:

Thermapen Classic (or really any of the Thermapens). Bar none the best thermometer for cooking I have ever bought — accept no substitutes.

Somewhat expensive at ~$70-$120 range, but I’ve been using mine for years and years, and it still gives me an accurate reading in less than three seconds. Well, well worth the price. Especially excellent for the grill. - theburners

Without a doubt. No other thermometer comes close. I’ve said it before on Kinja that the Thermapen is the best piece of kitchen equipment I’ve ever bought. - the-return-of-samba00

This model doesn’t see significant discounts very often, so pick up one in patriotic red or blue today.

Wedding season is officially upon us and that means you are about to drop a ton of money. If any of your friends or family members are getting married and they are registered at Macy’s, you better check their registry ASAP. You can get between 35-60% off select styles + free shipping on orders of $75 or more at Macy’s using the promo code FOURTH. If you don’t have to pay full price for that dinnerware set, why would you?


Does your skin turn a nice tomato red after only five minutes of sun exposure? You better stock up on some sunscreen now before you’re assaulted by UV rays all summer long. Thankfully, a cult-favorite Japanese sunscreen is currently on sale.

You can get an extra large bottle (1.7x the normal size) of Biore UV Watery Essence for $16 on Amazon right now, or a regular sized bottle for $8. The larger bottle is a slightly better price per ounce, but they’re both solid deals compared to their normal price points. The 50 SPF sunscreen is pretty literal to its name and is said to feel like water when applied to your skin.

Here’s what Shep McAllister had to say about it on The Inventory:

As far as sunscreen goes, the only thing I really knew about it was that I didn’t like it, and given the option, I would usually just opt to stay indoors until the UV index fell to around 3 or 4, or until someone invented a sunscreen pill, whichever came first.

That all changed when my wife introduced me to Biore Watery Essence sunscreen. It’s SPF 50 (the bare minimum for my needs, thank you very much), waterproof for 80 minutes, and feels like rubbing water on your skin. Cool to the touch, it rubs in effortlessly, and doesn’t come with the unpleasant smell or zincy stickiness of pretty much every other sunscreen I’ve used. About two minutes after putting it on, I’ve usually completely forgotten about it, which is a compliment of the highest order.

Why not get a bunch while they’re on sale? Right now, you can get 40% off Turkish towels during this Huckberry sale.

Everyone needs a good pair of jeans. If you know what I mean, head over to Levi’s, where sale styles are currently an extra 50% off with promo code EXTRA50. The sale includes styles for men, women, and kids, so truly everyone can dive into some new, discounted denim.


17.76% Off Sitewide | Greats | Promo code FIREWORKS
