Best Tech Deals

Refurb Sonos Play:1 | $119 | Sonos
Graphic: Shep McAllister

While it doesn’t support Alexa or AirPlay 2 like the newer Sonos One, the original Sonos Play:1 is still a terrific sounding speaker that can sync up with other Sonos products for multi-room audio. Normally $149, Sonos just put a batch of certified refurbs on sale for $119, matching the best price we’ve ever seen.

Every refurbished Sonos includes the standard one-year Sonos warranty and access to their support, so there’s really no downside in going this route, if you can find refurbs in stock. Every other time Sonos has offered this deal, it’s sold out quickly.


Aukey 8-Outlet/6-USB Power Strip | $20 | Amazon | Promo code AUKEY93S

Half the things you plug in these days probably plug into USB ports, so it only makes sense for power strips to incorporate them. Today on Amazon, you can get an 8-AC outlet/6-USB strip for $20 with promo code AUKEY93S. One of those USB ports even has Quick Charge 3.0.


Amazon Echo Dot 2nd Generation | $15 | Daily Steals (Facebook Marketplace)
Graphic: Shep McAllister

While it doesn’t look as nice or sound as good as the new Echo Dot, you can’t argue with the price of this second generation model: Just $15 for another perfectly capable entry point to the Alexa ecosystem. It’s not even refurbished like some other deals we’ve seen; it’s brand new.


COWIN Bluetooth Headphones | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Today’s Gold Box offers hefty discounts on the Cowin E7, E7 Pro, and E8 headphones. Cowin offers some of the best-selling noise canceling headphones on Amazon, and while they won’t match the quality of Bose and Sony ANC headphones, they’ll likely satisfy most who are curious about this new-ish tech.


Mophie Wireless Charge Pad 2-Pack | $54 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Pick up two Apple-optimized Mophie Qi chargers for a little over the price of one. These wireless units promise to charge iPhone 50% faster than standard Qi chargers. Better still, this is the lowest price we’ve seen on a this model.


The Muse: The Brain Sensing Headband | $160 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

The Muse: The Brain Sensing Headband promises to help you attain a more fulfilling meditation experience. Just strap on the headband, plug in your headphones and start the app. From there, the app and the sounds it provides will teach you to remain as calm as possible during your meditation session.

If nothing else, this could a be a fun experiment for those who want to practice more self care. This $160 price is $20 less than the standard going rate, so it’s a great time to invest if you’re interested.


Teckin Smart Power Strip | $23 | Amazon | Promo code 1549VL86
Photo: Amazon

At $23 (with promo code 1549VL86), this smart power strip costs about as much as a standard smart plug, but it includes four smart AC outlets that you can control individually with your smartphone or Alexa, plus four USB ports too (though you can only control them as a set).

Advertisement

The free control app and Alexa will recognize the power strip as five different devices (four AC outlets, and the USB ports as a group) , all of which you can name, schedule, connect to your favorite voice assistant, and control from anywhere.


65" Sceptre 4K TV | $400 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If size trumps features in your hierarchy of TV needs, this 65" Sceptre 4K TV is a steal for just $400, one of the best prices we’ve seen for a TV of this size. It doesn’t have smart apps or HDR, but what it does have is four HDMI ports, which is more than you get in a lot of high end TV sets.


Aukey 60W USB-C Charger with Two USB Ports | $36 | Amazon | Promo code AUKEY5PD
Aukey 46W USB-C Charger with One USB Port | $24 | Amazon | Promo code AUKEY3PD
Aukey 6' USB-C Cable | $7 | Amazon | Promo code AUKEY38D
Photo: Amazon

 Aukey’s 60W USB-C charger is barely any bigger than Apple’s 61W USB-C charger that ships with the 13" MacBook Pro, and yet it includes a couple of bonus USB-A ports for your other gadgets as well. That means that this could be the only charger you have to take on a trip to power your laptop, your Switch, your phone, and your tablet. Get it for $36 today with promo code AUKEY5PD.

Don’t need quite that much power? This one has one USB-A port and a 46W USB-C port, but it’s only $24 with code AUKEY3PD.

Need a spare USB-C cable to take advantage of those Power Delivery charging speeds? Use code AUKEY38D to get this 6' cable for $7.


Kingston A400 SSD 240GB SATA 3 2.5” SSD | $31 | Amazon | After 5% Coupon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Start the new year right by finally ditching your old spinning drive for this fast $31 solid state drive from Kingston. This particular 2.5-inch model is currently marked down to an all-time low, if you clip the coupon on the page.

Advertisement

Full disclosure, 240GB of storage probably isn’t enough to house a full-fledged operating system and all of your personal files. But if your computer has multiple drive slots or you just want to soup-up your web browsing machine, this is an awesome investment.

And even if you already have an SSD-powered PC, you can build reliable, fast external drive for cheap.


Milanese Loop Apple Watch Bands | $5 | Amazon | Promo code 50NBM4JV. Multiple colors and sizes available.

Whether you’re getting a brand new Apple Watch today, or just want to accessorize your old one, this Milanese loop band is a great deal at $5, with promo code 50NBM4JV. That should work on any color and size, so you can match your watch’s color, or create a nice contrast.


JACKYLED Power Strip Tower | $18 | Amazon | Use code OFSZFNS6

What were they thinking inventing this surge protector and not calling it the Power Tower? Missed marketing opportunities aside, it comes with 10 outlets, four USB ports, and its own 6ft retractable power cord. Plus, it rotates for optimum space-saving. Get it for $18 with promo code OFSZFNS6.


Phlips Hue 2-Pack A19 White Ambiance Bulbs | $38 | Amazon | Clip the 5% coupon
Phlips Hue 2-Pack BR30 White Ambiance Bulbs | $38 | Amazon | Clip the 5% coupon
Philips Hue Bloom Lamp | $51 | Amazon | Clip the 5% coupon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you didn’t get all the Philips Hue lights you wanted for Christmas—or if you did and now find that you need to scratch that itch even more—Amazon’s discounted a few different Hue products today, with an extra 5% clippable coupon thrown in on top for good measure.

Advertisement

The bulb two-packs are White Ambiance bulbs, meaning they can display different temperatures of white (i.e. dim, warm light at night, and energizing daylight during the day), but they can’t display colors.

The Bloom is a unique RGB lamp that you put on the floor or on a table, and point at the wall to “paint” it with light. It’s a really cool effect, and since it’s a standalone light fixture, you won’t have to use one of your existing lamps to use it.


Sceptre 50" 1080p TV | $220 | Walmart
Sceptre 55" 4K TV | $260 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

There’s nothing fancy about these TVs. The 55" is 4K, and the 50" is 1080p, but neither have HDR or any kind of smart functionality. But price is the most important spec for, say, a bedroom TV, and these hit the mark at $260 and $220, respectively.


Anker PowerLine+ 6' USB-C Cable | $10 | Amazon | Promo code CHRS8888
Photo: Amazon

If you got any new gadgets over the holidays, there’s a decent chance they charge over USB-C.

The Switch? USB-C.

iPad Pros? USB-C.

Sony’s newest noise-canceling headphones? You get the idea.

So if you suddenly have a handful of USB-C gadgets, and not enough charging cables to go around, you can fix that today for $10 with promo code CHRS8888. That gets you a 6' long PowerLine+ cable from Anker. It’s ultra-durable, wrapped in nylon, and ] bright red to make it easier to spot in your bag amongst all the other cords.


Anker PowerLine+ II 6' Lightning Cable | $13 | Amazon | Promo code CHRS8453. Multiple colors available.

Anker’s reader-favorite PowerLine charging cables have blossomed into an entire line of different products, and it hasn’t always been clear which one was the best:

  • PowerLine - The original. Rubber-wrapped, and kevlar-reinforced.
  • PowerLine+ - The same, but wrapped in Nylon for added durability, less tangling, and a better feel.
  • PowerLine II - A more durable version of the original, and backed by a lifetime warranty, but without the benefits of nylon wrapping.

That confusion can now become a thing of the past, because they’ve combined the best of all of their cables into the new PowerLine+ II, and you can save on the 10‘ Lightning version today for the first time ever. It’s incredibly durable, it’s wrapped in nylon, and it comes with a lifetime warranty, meaning it’s probably the last Lightning cable you’ll ever have to buy. Get it in any color you want today for $14, or about $6 less than usual, with promo code CHRS8453.


Anker SmartCharge F0 Bluetooth FM Transmitter | $14 | Amazon | Promo code ROAVF0BS

Anker’s Roav brand, the manufacturer of an incredibly popular dash cam, also makes some seriously smart car chargers. This one’s only $14 today with promo code ROAVF0BS.

The SmartCharge F0 is an FM transmitter that takes the Bluetooth signal from your phone, and rebroadcasts it the FM radio station of your choice, giving you truly wireless audio and handsfree calls in older vehicles that don’t have Bluetooth or even an AUX jack built in. And since this is an Anker brand, you also get two high speed USB charging ports.

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.

Private Internet Access doesn’t do much in the way of discounting, but they offer exclusive pricing and packages just for our readers that you won’t find anywhere else. Here are your options, and what you’d pay if you bought the same plan elsewhere:

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

Espro 1132C2 Coffee Press P7 | $89 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

It’s hard to improve on the classic coffee press, but this vacuum insulated model from Espro sure is handsome. This double-wall design promises to keep your java warm for hours. While $89 may seem like a lot, this is a dollar off the lowest price we’ve seen on this particular model. And if you’re serious about your morning coffee, it’s worth a shot.


AmazonBasics 20" + 28" Spinner Hardside Suitcases | $76 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

You won’t see them on any sleek TV commercials or in trendy lower Manhattan storefronts like, say, Away’s suitcases. But these hardside spinners from AmazonBasics will get the job done for occasional travelers, and you can’t beat the price: a 20" carry-on and a 28" checked bag for just $76. Those just happen to be the only two suitcase sizes that 99% of people need in their livers.

Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Auto-Vox Rearview Camera and Mirror Kit | $98 | Amazon | Promo code XVHY9BPG

Once you’ve used a rear-view camera, it can be tough to live without, and you can add one to your older car for just $98 with promo code XVHY9BPG.

Advertisement

This Auto-Vox kit includes a camera and a replacement rearview mirror with the display built in. When the screen is off, the mirror will work just like any other, but when the camera (which draws power from your reverse light, cleverly) comes on, the left side of the mirror will display a wide angle view of everything behind you.


25% Off Furniture, Select Decor, and Select Bedding | Anthropologie
Image: Anthropologie

Whenever I walk into an Anthropologie, I realize that my apartment is all wrong because it is not completely filled with all the cool, rustic, yet somehow also glamorous furnishings that the store has to offer. But if there were ever a day to makeover your home — and by extension, your life — it would be today, because Anthropologie is taking 25% off furniture, and select bedding, bath, and decor.

You could do something as big as purchasing a new couch, as medium as gracing your floor with a new rug, or as subtle as replacing your knobs with hipster-cool hardware. But whatever you do, don’t miss this deal; speaking from experience here, I have an Anthropologie duvet cover, and I love it more than some of my blood relatives.

For all of the eligible products, head over to this page.


Blackbeard Armada Nonstick Cookware | Kickstarter

I’ve never been a huge fan of nonstick pans—why buy a pan that will wear out in a couple of years when cast iron or stainless steel will last forever?—but they certainly have their uses for certain kinds of foods, and Blackbeard’s pans are some of the best I’ve ever tried.

Image: Kickstarter

Designed with the help of Michelin-starred chefs, Blackbeard pans combine a tri-ply steel-aluminum-steel construction with a totally unique nonstick cooking surface. A a thin mesh of steel dimples and honeycombs prevents metal utensils from directly scratching the nonstick surface, which Blackbeard claims more than doubles the pan’s lifespan.

Advertisement

They sent me a frying pan to try out, and naturally, I went straight to frying eggs. While the metal mesh did seem to grab onto the whites a bit more than you’d expect in a regular nonstick pan, they still flipped with ease, leaving only a few charred bits behind that wiped right off with a paper towel. On the continuum of cooking on a steel pan vs. cooking on a pure nonstick, the surface behaved much more like the latter, while the pan seemed to heat up nearly as quickly and evenly as my beloved All-Clad.

This is a pretty perfect illustration of how the honeycomb nonstick surface performs. It’s *mostly* nonstick, but has a little bit more grab to it than a regular nonstick pan.
GIF: Shep McAllister

The company’s first pan was a Kickstarter hit, and is already in backers’ hands. But now, they’re back with the Blackbeard “Armada,” a full line of pans for every type of meal. You can buy one, or buy them all, and you’ll be saving a bunch compared to their expected MSRP once they release this summer.


Tacklife HD60 Laser Measure | $26 | Amazon | Promo code O3JTOPJ7

Instant Pot IP DUO Plus 6 Qt. | $97 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you keep telling yourself you should buy an Instant Pot, today’s the day to pull the trigger, as the 6 qt. Plus model is on sale for less than the cost of the 3 quart version.

Advertisement

In addition to pressure cooking (which is a miracle), this is also our readers’ favorite slow cooker, and one of their favorite rice cookers too. To put it simply, it’s one of the most versatile kitchen gadgets you can own. Today’s deal is over $30 less than usual, and while we saw better deals around Black Friday, this is still a good bargain if you didn’t have an Instant Pot waiting for you under the tree.


Coca-Cola Glass Collector’s Set | $10 | Walmart
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

As the old slogan goes, have a Coca-Cola Glass Collector’s Set from Walmart! While there’s no actual Coke included in this giftable set, there are a few collectable glasses and Coca-Cola-themed coasters, making for a nice Americana-esque piece of nostalgia to display for just $10. There are also pretzels, and no one will ever know why.


$10 Off Ceiling Fans | $50+ | Daily Steals | Promo code KINJAFAN
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Prices start at just $50 after the code, with free shipping on all orders. You’re on your own for installation though.


Gaiam Balance Disc Seat Cushion | $18 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

I know, I know, one of your New Year’s resolutions was to get one of those balance ball chairs at work to improve your posture and core strength (surely this applies to someone reading this?!). But listen, you don’t have to look like Dwight Schrute to reap the benefits of a balance ball.

Gaiam makes in inflatable seat cushion that’s essentially just the top part of a balance ball chopped off and added to your existing seat. At $18, it’s a lot cheaper than a full ball, and a lot less likely to draw weird looks.


Tacklife Electric Arc Lighter | $10 | Amazon | Promo code HBVITGRN

It’s 2019, and your lighter doesn’t need fuel anymore; it just has to charge over USB. This discounted arc lighter isn’t really pocket-friendly, but its long, flexible neck makes it ideal for lighting candles, camp fires and other awkwardly-placed flammable things. Just charge the built-in battery, and you’ll be good to go for up to 1,000 uses before you have to plug it in again.

Get it for $10 today with promo code HBVITGRN, the best price we’ve ever seen.


Epicurean Cutting Board | $20 | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

I would argue there’s no such thing as too many cutting boards — especially if you don’t have the counter and/or kitchen storage space for a really big one — because, ya know, sometimes a recipe mandates that you cut more than one thing. Thus, it’s probably a good idea to add one of these Epicurean Cutting Boards, now sliced down in price to just $20, to your culinary arsenal. It comes in three neutral hues, and our readers say it’s cut out for any chopping task that may arise.


Elf Stor Heavy Duty Canvas Christmas Tree Storage Bag | $30 | Amazon

Gerber Shard Keychain Tool | $5 | Amazon
Graphic: Elizabeth Zimmerman

Once you’ve gotten used to keeping a multi-tool on you, it can be hard to go without. But the TSA doesn’t care about that, and good luck getting your Leatherman on a plane.

The Gerber Shard isn’t as fancy as a lot of mini tool gizmos, but it’s airline approved and it fits on your keychain — and it’s $5. It features three drivers, a wire stripper, a pry bar, and a bottle opener, so maybe it’s just enough to keep you from having handy gadget withdrawals in “no weapons” situations. (It’s also a nice little gift for people that don’t really need or want anything else.)

GREATS Winter Clearance - Men | Women
Graphic: Shep McAllister

You’ve probably seen an ad for GREATS on Facebook or Instagram, and I’m happy to report that they aren’t a scam. I own a pair of Royales, and it almost feels like an insult to call them sneakers, because they’re as well made and sturdy and unapologetically leather as any dress shoes I’ve ever owned. And yet, they are sneakers. Really, really good sneakers.

Greats doesn’t run big sales very often, but right now, you can take advantage of their Winter Clearance event (men | women), with up to 50% off a pretty wide variety of styles. They only tend to do sales this big twice per year, and while your color and size choices are somewhat limited, but these are as, uh, great as GREATS deals ever get.
