Today’s Best Tech Deals

Anker SoundCore 2 | $32 | Amazon | Promo code SPKA3105
Photo: Amazon

With its 24 hour battery life, impressive bass, and crystal clear sound quality, the Anker SoundCore has long been our readers’ favorite affordable Bluetooth speaker, and its water-resistant successor is down to $32 today with promo code SPKA3105, or $8 less than usual.

The SoundCore 2 still includes dual drivers and that amazing 24 hour battery; the only real differences are a slightly tweaked design and the aforementioned water resistance. That means you can take it to the pool, the beach, or even the shower without fear.

15% off PicasoLabs Leather Sleeves | Promo code KINJA015 | Amazon | Plus $8 for custom engraving
Advertisement

Your laptop is one of the most expensive things you own, and it deserves to be treated as such. Rather than throwing it roughshod into your bag, slip it into one of PicasoLabs’ beautiful, hand-stitched leather sleeves, now back on sale just for our readers, this weekend only.

Jesus Diaz raved about these and interviewed the creator on Gizmodo a few years ago, and now you can pick your own from Amazon for 15% off with promo code KINJA015, plus $8 if you want it engraved.

Advertisement

There are several options available, and prices will vary depending on the size of your laptop. They’re all designed specifically for various MacBook models, but compare measurements, and you could probably find one to fit your Windows Ultrabook as well. No matter which one you choose, you’ll save 15% at checkout with that promo code.

Zero Grid Card Holder | $8 | Amazon | Clip the $1 coupon and use promo code LNBS73BM
Advertisement

You have to carry your phone, and you have to carry a wallet (for now), but there’s no rule saying that they can’t be one thing.

The Zero Grid card holder sticks onto the back of basically any phone or case, and holds up to 8 cards, or or fewer cards plus some cash, all while protecting them from RFID skimmers. Plus, it’s one less thing to forget when you leave the house.

Today on Amazon, use promo code LNBS73BM and clip the $1 coupon to get any of the available colors for $8, within a few cents of the best deal we’ve seen.

The Battery Organizer Storage Case | $17 | Amazon

It’s...beautiful.

Our readers have bought thousands of rechargeable batteries over the years, so it’s safe to assume you guys have some rolling around in the back of a drawer somewhere in your house. You can start organizing them with this $17 storage case. It has 93 slots of varying shapes and sizes, so it will fit most battery types, and has a removable battery tester.

Advertisement

Advertisement

AA batteries are dying an all-too-slow death, but while they’re still a part of your life, you probably want to upgrade to rechargeables. This pack of eight from AmazonBasics is down to $15, and is within $.02 of an all-time low price.

That’s about $4 less than the equivalent Eneloop pack. And if you believe some reviewers, these may actually be rebranded Eneloops themselves. We can’t verify that claim (though like Eneloops, they were produced in Japan and pre-charged with solar energy, which seems really specific to be a coincidence), but whatever their origin, they have great reviews, and a stellar price tag.

You could basically furnish an entire house with stuff from Amazon’s Rivet and Stone & Beam brands. And what’s more, your house would actually look good.

For a limited time, a bunch of lamps, picture frames, planters, shelves, and more from Amazon’s housewares collections are up to 30% off. I guarantee there’s something in here that you’d like for your home, and most of it costs less than $50.

Genius Mat by Sky Mats | $51 | Amazon | Promo code GENIUSMAT15
Photo: Amazon

I’ll tell you from experience that switching to a standing desk is inadvisable without a good standing desk mat. But if you’re going to get a good standing desk mat, you might as well get a great standing desk mat.

Genius Mat features all sorts of contours, ridges, and even a big roller ball for your arches so you can stretch your legs and massage your feet throughout the day. They sent me one to try out a few weeks ago, and I’ve been spending a lot more time standing at my desk than I used to, even as events surrounding me at work conspire to knock me onto my ass.

My feet feel great at the end of the day too. Certainly better than the rest of me.

Use promo code GENIUSMAT15 to get it for $51, down from the usual $60.

Three By Three Seattle Jotblock Chunky Sketchpad | $18 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

This good-ass sketchpad has 380 sheets, and holes that go all the way through it to hold 12 included colored pencils. It’s on Hannah Hart’s desk, and she’s written two cookbooks and makes very popular videos. Was the sketchpad the secret to her successes? Only $18 (the best price ever) to find out.

Cuisinart Steam & Convection Oven | $160 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister
Advertisement

The secret to the fastest, most evenly-cooking toaster ovens out there might surprise you. It’s steam!

Advertisement

Steam ovens have long been a secret weapon of bakeries and restaurants, but consumer models are finally starting to go mainstream, and today’s deal is the most affordable we’ve seen yet. Cuisinart’s Steam & Convection Oven is big enough to accommodate a 12" pizza, a 4.5 pound chicken, or four large slices of bread, and its water reservoir can push up to two hours of continuous steam for faster, more even cooking when combined with the unit’s broilers and convection fans.

$160 is the best price ever on this oven, and the best price we’ve ever seen on any countertop steam oven.

J.Crew Mercantile Sale | Amazon

J.Crew? On Amazon? Well, sort of. J.Crew Mercantile is an offshoot brand that J.Crew created specifically for Amazon, and it’s more akin to what you’d find at a J.Crew outlet store. Which is fine! It’s still good stuff.

We haven’t seen a big sale on J.Crew Mercantile gear since Prime Day, but as part of Amazon’s lead-up to Black Friday, six pages worth of apparel are on sale for one day only.

Lucky Brand Sale | Amazon

In addition to Amazon’s one-day J.Crew Mercantile sale, you can save on a smaller collection of tops, jewelry, shoes, and of course, jeans from Lucky Brand, today only.

By far the most popular thing in the sale is the men’s 181 jean for $45, but you might as well grab some earrings for $15 or less. At the very least, you could give them to someone as a gift.

Fashion Accessory Sale | Amazon

Rounding out Amazon’s pre-Black Friday clothing sales is a collection of fashion accessories from designers like Rebecca Taylor, Sam Edelman, and Hugo Boss.

Even if you aren’t a fashionista, the sale includes stuff like underwear and belts for cheap, in addition to lots and lots of shoes, so you’ll probably find something you want.

If you don’t have the time or inclination to shop for your own clothes, The Menlo Club will send you a couple of surprise products from Five Four, Grand AC, or New Republic each month, in your size, for $60. And today only, you can get $30 off your first order, plus a Kinja Deals-exclusive bundle consisting of a jacket, a t-shirt (or hoodie) and one accessory (socks or sunglasses). To get the deal, you’ll need to use promo code KINJABUNDLE at checkout.

Note: The promo code field may already have something else populated, so just replace it with KINJABUNDLE and press enter to apply the code.

When you sign up for a new subscription, you’ll provide Menlo Club with the styles that you like (Casual, Classic, Forward, or a mix), plus all of your shoe, pant, and shirt sizes, so you can be sure that everything will fit. If something doesn’t fit when it arrives, size exchanges are free, as is shipping.

You can cancel whenever you want, so there’s no risk. Just remember to use code KINJABUNDLE at checkout to get the deal.

U Deluxe, Mario Tennis Aces, Super Mario Party, Splatoon 2, and Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee are all in the must-own pantheon for Switch owners, or at worst just a half tier below that.

All of them are marked down to $44 or less on Amazon or Walmart today, which is about as good as it gets on Nintendo’s own games.

Puro Sound Labs Holiday Deals | Amazon

Loud headphones can damage kids’ ears. We all know this, and while some devices have ways to limit volume through software, that’s certainly not the case across the board, and kids are notoriously clever at getting around software limitations.

Enter Puro Sound Labs, a headphone company that specializes in volume-limited audio products designed for kids’ ears. Running the gamut from Bluetooth headphones to headsets for Fortnite, they’re all designed to keep volume at a safe level no matter what they’re connected to.

Advertisement

The company just kicked off its holiday promotions, highlighted by the PuroQuiet noise canceling on-ears down to $80 (from $100), the PuroGamer gaming headset marked down to $50 (from $80), the JuniorJams Bluetooth headphones for $40 (from $50), and the PuroPlugs noise-deadening ear plugs for $20 (down from $30). All of those deals are available in every color, so you can get gifts for every kid on your shopping list.

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

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 10% sitewide sale (live now) holds the promise of serious savings, if you still haven’t gotten rid of that old coil spring. They’ve run the same deal for a few other holidays this year, but this is still a solid deal if you’re in the market for a great bed.

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 $269 on the new, advanced Wave mattress. Just use promo code HOUR at checkout to see the savings stack up.

Free 10-14 Pound Turkey With First Delivery | Butcher Box | $10 off with promo code TURKEY10
Advertisement

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and Butcher Box is marking the occasion by throwing in a free turkey with your first delivery.

Butcher Box’s whole turkeys are 10-14 pounds, preservative free, and have never been given antibiotics or added hormones. That turkey ought to be big enough for about 8-10 people, so figure out your invite list, and start thinking about how you want to cook the thing (you have to invite me if you’re deep frying).

Advertisement

Your bonus come bundled with any of Butcher Box’s pre-selected boxes, which are priced at $129 for 24 servings, or $238 for 48 servings, which can be delivered every 30 or 60 days. For a nominal surcharge, you can also build a completely custom box, with your choices of proteins.

When it comes to leftover containers, once you go glass, you’ll never go back. These OXO leakproof containers are save in the freezer, in the microwave, in the dishwasher, and even in the oven, and the 16-piece set (eight containers with eight lids) is marked down by 20% on Amazon today.

60% Off Rivieras | Huckberry

Look, you’re probably not going to wear these any time soon, with the possible exception of a two minute dog walk, but Rivieras makes some of the best summer espadrilles you can buy, and they’re cheaper than we’ve ever seen them before at just $30 per pair.

Seven different styles are available, but our Megan Collins is particularly fond of the red, white, and blue mesh Tour De Monde style:

A blend of cotton and mesh, this pair from Rivieras is both breathable (for those really warm days) and comfortable to boot. The navy with red trim lends a stylish, preppy look if you feel like channeling Vampire Weekend.

Extra 15% Off Sale | Columbia | Promo code EXTRA15

Just enter promo code GIFT20 at checkout to save. It shouldn’t cost you an arm and a leg just to be able to see.

Anyone who is on the market for a new pair of full-rim frames can check out the Yokote Matte Black Eyeglasses. If you’re tired of standard black frames and want a pop of color, you’ll love the Dutchess Matte Pink Eyeglasses.

If you’re keeping an eye on your blood pressure, it can be useful to track any changes over time. Sure, you could write down readings in a notebook or make a spreadsheet, but the easiest way to monitor your BP is with your smartphone.

Anker Zolo Liberty Headphones [Upgraded] | $60 | Amazon | Promo code ZL2001HP
Advertisement

You might have heard a thing or two about some new Apple headphones last week, but they aren’t the only high profile wireless earbuds to get an upgrade recently.

These new and improved Zolo Liberty headphones are sort of a cross between the original Liberties and the now discontinued Liberty+, which we reviewed last year. They keep the design of the original Liberties, and still don’t have app-based EQ settings, but they did steal Bluetooth 5.0 and improved battery life from the more expensive version. In fact, they now claim to run for up to five hours untethered (the same as AirPods), and for up to 40 hours when combined with the charging case (a lot better than AirPods).

Advertisement

True wireless earbuds with Bluetooth 5 and that kind of battery life are no joke at any price, and these ‘buds usually sell for $99. Today though, you can get them for an all-time low $60 with promo code ZL2001HP.

The weather is finally getting on the cooler side and what better way is there to prepare for a crisp fall day than wrapping yourself up in a sweater? One of our readers’ favorite sweaters is back in stock, with more colors than last year, and is on super sale. You can get 60% off all Merino Sweaters from Jachs when you use promo code FLASH60.

If Merino sweaters aren’t exactly your thing, that’s okay. Jachs still has their Fall Sitewide Flash Sale going on, where you can get up to 60% off everything.

LEGO Saturn V Apollo | $90 | Amazon

In one giant leap for deal-kind, LEGO’s stunning Saturn V Apollo is back on sale for an entirely reasonable $90 right now, a $30 discount from its usual price, and the best deal we’ve seen since the 2018 holiday season.

What makes this set so popular? Well, it has 1,969 pieces (get it?), the main spacecraft is more than three feet tall when assembled, and the set allows you to simulate an entire mission, from launch to splashdown. We’re kind of bummed that it doesn’t come with a pack of astronaut ice cream for extra realism (and deliciousness!), but you can always get that at Amazon.

Aukey PA-D3 60W USB C Charger | $26 | Amazon | Use code KINJAD339

Save big on a couple of travel-friendly, Aukey USB-C wall plugs with our exclusive coupon. Use the promo code KINJAD546 to drop the price on an Aukey PA-D5 60W Dual-Port PD Wall Charger down to just $27. This unit offers *two* USB-C plugs to charge from. Here’s what Corey, our deal researcher, had to say about his experience:

I’ve been using the Aukey PA-D5 60W Dual-Port PD Wall Charger to charge my Switch and Dell Inspiron 13 for a couple of weeks. Both charge at their highest rates through USB-C PD.

Advertisement

But if you want to mix and match USB types, we’ve got you covered. An Aukey PA-D3 60W USB-C Charger with a standard USB port is down to $27 using the code KINJAD339.

Advertisement

If you’re still using the stock, single plug unit that came with your device, you’re in need of an upgrade. I mean, imagine the convenience of charging two of your devices at once? That’s the future. And this is an excellent opportunity to get one ahead of peak travel season.

Anker Bolder LC90 2-Cell Flashlight | $28 | Amazon | Promo code KINJALITE
2-Pack Anker LC40 Flashlights | $18 | Amazon | Promo code KINJALITE
Advertisement

With a whopping 900 lumens of brightness, an extended rechargeable battery that lasts up to 13 hours on the medium setting, a zoomable beam, and IP65 dust and water resistance, Anker’s LC90 flashlight is enough flashlight for just about everyone. And with those specs, it’s a steal at $28, down from the usual $36, with promo code KINJALITE.

Advertisement

If you don’t need that sort of military grade brightness, you can also get a 2-pack of the 400 lumen LC40 flashlight for $18, with the same KINJALITE promo code. Just note that they run off of AAA batteries, rather than a built-in rechargeable.

Advertisement

To give you a little context about the brightness here, your smartphone’s flashlight probably puts out about 40-60 lumens. Again, these have 900 and 400, respectively. Don’t look directly at them.


Buy 3, Get One Free Video Games | Amazon

Amazon’s offering a buy-three-get-one-free offer on video games. Here’s what they’re saying, “Add 3 items from the selection on this page to your Shopping Basket via the ‘Add to Basket’. When you’re done shopping, click the ‘Proceed to Checkout’ button.” So, um, I see an “Add to Cart” button, but whatever. (So, isn’t it buy 2 get one free? Ugh.)

It’s a solid deal especially considering there are a lot of recently released titles here, including The Outer Worlds. Unfortunately, it would not let me buy three copies of Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch.

Cable Matters 4-Rotating Outlet Wall Mount Surge Protector | $17 | Amazon | Promo code 15XWFPGL
Graphic: Shep McAllister

You know those outlets behind your couch? Or your dresser? You know, the ones that you don’t use because it would mean having to permanently your furniture several inches away from the wall to avoid putting too much strain on the plug and cord coming out of the outlet?

With this four-outlet surge protector from Cable Matters, you can actually put those outlets to use, without compromising your furniture placement. Four swiveling plugs let your cords run out to the side, rather than straight out from the wall, and a couple of USB ports are onboard as well if you want to use this in an office or nightstand environment.

Normally priced at $20, get it for $17 today with promo code 15XWFPGL.

Cable Matters 2-Pack 2-in-1 USB-C Cable | $8 | Amazon | Promo code 15XWFPGL
Graphic: Shep McAllister

MicroUSB is the cockroach of the tech world: it’ll never truly die. Even now, as we round the corner into a new decade, a depressing number of electronics still use the archaic plug instead of a modern USB-C connector.

So what can you, the average consumer, do to make this frustratingly slow transition suck a little bit less? Buy two of these 2-in-1 cables for under $8, that’s what. The Cable Matters microUSB cables include USB-C tips on the end that you can attach when needed, and while they won’t support USB-C PD fast charging, they’ll let you charge just about every device not made by Apple.

Amazon Echo Wall Clock | $25 | Amazon

Amazon’s Echo Wall Clock is a revelation for the specific (but I think quite large!) subset of people who:

1) Use Alexa timers in the kitchen with some regularity.

and

2) Don’t have an Echo Show with a screen built in.

Just pop in some batteries, hang the clock, and a ring of LEDs will automatically count down the minutes and final 60 seconds of any timer you set with your voice. It’s elegant, seamless, and I can’t stand how much I love the thing.

Advertisement

It came out late last year for $30, but it just got a rare discount to $25. The clock is ticking on this deal though, so don’t waste any time.

Prepara Flexible Roasting Laurel Rack | $11 | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Your roasted meats might already be deserving of laurels, but they could be even more acclaimed with the help of this $11 roasting laurel, now on sale at Amazon. The roasting laurel raises your roasts up, so they aren’t sitting in grease, and allows them to cook more evenly. Plus, cleanup is easier, since you won’t have to spend time scraping burnt bits off the bottom of the pan. The laurel is made of heat-resistant, flexible silicone, and unlike metal roasting racks, there’s no risk of it scratching or damaging your cookware.

In a very short amount of time, Anker has upended and basically come to dominate the (cool but decidedly niche) portable projector market. It was only a matter of time, but the company is now turning its sights on legitimate, home theater-quality projectors, and preorders just opened.

The new Nebula Cosmos 1080p and Nebula Cosmos Max are fully featured projectors in every sense of the word, featuring sharper, brighter pictures than their portable siblings, while retaining features that made those smaller projectors so appealing, like built-in Android, excellent speakers, and support for screen mirroring.

Advertisement

The Cosmos 1080p spits out 900 ANSI lumens (for comparison, the Nebula Capsule II puts out a surprisingly good picture with 200) and a 1080p picture, while the Cosmos Max ups the brightness to 1500 ANSI lumens and the picture quality to 4K, while adding a couple more Dolby Digital Plus internal speakers. But both support HDR10, 100,000:1 contrast ratios, LED bulbs that are rated to last a whopping 30,000 hours, and built-in streaming service apps (in addition to a couple of HDMI ports) via Android 9.

Advertisement

But the most disruptive aspect of the Cosmos projectors are their price points. The 1080p model starts at just $429 for super earlybird backers on Kickstarter, and the 4K edition starts at $999, both of which drastically undercut the obvious competition. We briefly saw the Max model in action at Anker’s unveiling, and even in a room with a fair amount of ambient light, it looked terrific.

The Kickstarter is live now, and the projectors are expected to start shipping in March.


Private Internet Access 1-Year Subscription | $29 | Renews at the same price in perpetuity

If you’re a NordVPN customer, you may have heard about a long-undisclosed security breach this week, and thus might be in the market for a new VPN provider. And even if you have no idea what I’m referring to, it might be worth signing up for a VPN service anyway, which can protect your privacy when browsing the web, and even let you access content from certain sites and streaming video providers that aren’t available in your physical location (Love Island, anyone?)

Advertisement

Private Internet Access has long been our readers’ favorite VPN service thanks to its low prices, its speed, and its excellent apps for every major platform. And now with the news of the NordVPN hack, they’re offering the best price we’ve ever seen on an annual subscription: $29 for the whole year. That’s $10 less than it’s been previously, and the best part is that your subscription will renew every year at the same $29 price, as long as you don’t cancel.

Microsoft’s new Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription combines Xbox Gold online multiplayer with Xbox Game Pass, giving you access to over 100 games (including The Outer Worlds!) to play as much as you want.

If you hate seeing a mess of cables behind your desk or home theater, a cheap pack of Velcro-style cable ties might have the best ROI of any product...ever? This pack of 50 from AmazonBasics is on sale for just $6, and will consolidate your rat king of cables into a single, manageable mega-cable.

These aren’t just strips of Velcro either. The loop design means you can easily tighten or loosen them as needed without fully removing them, so the next time you buy a new game console, you can add its power cable to your bundle without having to redo all of your hard work. They’re amazing. They make you feel good about organizing things. They probably saved my marriage. Buy them.
