TP-Link’s well-reviewed AC3200 router is good enough for just about every home or apartment, and you can get it for an all-time low $120 today. Just make sure you don’t step on it thinking it’s some kind of large bug.
Higher capacity cards get more attention in the age of Nintendo Switch games and 4K GoPro footage, but if 64GB is all you need from a microSD card, $23 is a couple bucks off the usual going rate for this SanDisk card. It was cheaper during a Gold Box deal a few weeks ago, but otherwise, it’s been pretty stubbornly priced at $25.
You probably already own a pair of Bluetooth headphones, but it never hurts to buy an extra set for your gym bag or luggage, in case you leave your favorites at home. VAVA’s MOOV 28 have fantastic Amazon reviews, and are just $20 today with code KINJABH9.
If you’re ready to make the leap to a 4K monitor (and if you’re sure your computer can handle it), this 27" LG IPS display is down to its best price in about a year on Amazon.
If you aren’t familiar, IPS displays boast superior color accuracy and viewing angles compared to the TN panels you’ll find in most cheap 4K monitors, and with this deal, you’re basically getting IPS for “free” compared to the going rate for similar 4K displays.
These Samsung TVs aren’t the highest end models in the lineup, but they feature 4K panels, Samsung’s (limited) flavor of HDR10 support, and of course, excellent smart tv software and Samsung’s ecosystem of apps. Get a 40" set for $400 today, or a 49" for $500 with promo code KINJASMARTV, while they last.
For context, that’s $48 less than Amazon’s price for the smaller model, and $59 off the 49" price.
If you take PC gaming seriously and have the money to spend, the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 TI OC 11G (as in, 11GB of GDDR5X RAM) is one of the most powerful graphics cards you can buy, and a solid deal at $700, especially with a free copy of Destiny 2 thrown in. The next best price we can find is $750 at Newegg, which doesn’t include the bonus game.
The day will come where all USB ports you regularly interact with in the world will be USB-C ports. Until then, you’ll need some USB-A to USB-C cables to help manage the transition. Get five nylon-braided cables of various length today for $15 with promo code AUKECMD2.
You can also get three 3' cables for $10, but they aren’t braided.
Vertical surge protectors (power towers, as I like to call them) seem to be having a moment right now, and this one includes eight AC outlets and six USB ports for just $31 with promo code ZY3FFGC8. If that’s not enough power for your desk, you might need a tech intervention.
This aluminum gadget stand is foldable, portable, can hold pretty much any mobile device, and is only $9. What’s not to love?
Mesh routers are so hot right now, and Linksys’ take on the concept is down to $330 for a 3-pack today (with code KINJAVELOP), if you don’t mind buying a refurb.
The Velop works like pretty much any other mesh networking system: One router plugs into your modem, and the rest can basically go anywhere in your home to extend the network. But it has a stellar 4.5 star review average on Amazon (where it sells for a whopping $500 new), and it even supports Alexa commands.
iPhone X preorders go live on Friday, but you can get a head start on your accessories with these exclusive discounts from Anker.
First up, the PowerPort Speed USB-C charger is basically the Anker equivalent of Apple’s $49 MacBook charger, except it’s only $21. If you buy a USB-C to Lightning cable from Apple, this is the fastest way to charge your new iPhone (though it’s not that much faster than a regular 12W charger).
Speaking of Lightning cables, you can never have enough of them, and Anker’s nylon-wrapped PowerLine+ cables are on sale as well. You’ve never felt a cable this nice before.
And of course, if you get your hands on a shiny new iPhone X, you’re going to want to keep it safe, so you can choose from a variety of discounted cases.
There’s a nasty new Wi-Fi exploit out in the wild these days, but you can protect yourself from prying eyes (and get around geo-blocked content too) with a VPN subscription.
Lo and behold, PureVPN is offering some pretty stellar discounts right now when you use promo code Privacy20:
- 24 months for $62.40 ($2.60 per month)
- Six months for $42.96 ($7.16 per month)
- One month for $8.76
PureVPN encrypts and obscures all of your internet traffic from everyone from malicious hackers to your ISP to the government, and includes some cool features like a kill switch to automatically disconnect your Wi-Fi if the VPN stops working, as well as split tunneling, which can route some of your traffic through the VPN, while letting the rest go through your ISP.

If you don’t own a pressure cooker, today’s a great day to fix that, as Amazon’s knocked the highly-rated Instant Pot IP-DUO60 all the way down to $81. While that’s not as good as a one-day $70 deal they ran at the beginning of October, it’s still $19 less than usual, and a great chance to save if you want to use it to help cook Thanksgiving dinner.
If you’re worried that you won’t get a ton of use out of this thing, note that in addition to standard pressure cooking, this is also our readers’ favorite slow cooker, and one of their favorite rice cookers too. To put a fine point on it: It’s one of the most versatile kitchen gadgets you can own. Even if you already have one, I don’t need to tell you that these make great gifts, and the holidays are just around the corner.
If you want to go all out, the Instant Pot Ultra is also $20 off, down to $128. That model adds additional cooking modes, nitty-gritty customizable cooking settings, and even altitude adjustment if you live well above sea level.
With a locking lid, this 6-quart Crock-Pot is ultra-portable and can serve up to 7 people, all for $32. You can even program it start cooking while you’re away at work so you can come home to a warm meal. It’s part of Amazon’s Gold Box deals today which means, although it’s a slow cooker, this deal will go fast.
Might be cutting it a little too close for Halloween, but you might as well plan ahead to decorate your house for every holiday with just one $34 gadget (with code T66LJKDY).
This waterproof LED projector comes with 12 different themes like, Santa Claus, snowflakes, falling leaves, and Valentine’s Day hearts. You position it outside, set the timer, and you’re done.
Perk up with this programmable, 12-cup Hamilton Beach coffee maker, selling today at its all time low price of $29.

Plus, with a USB charging port, you can keep your phone charged close by in case you do want to take a Instagram mental break.
Even if you don’t have any infants at home, baby wipes can be great for getting deodorant marks out of your shirt, polishing up your earbuds, and generally cleaning up gross things. While supplies last, get 864 wipes for just $11 from Amazon after accounting for a $6 coupon on the page.
I’ve never really thought of mixing bowls of being but anything simple bowls, but this set from VonShef knocks normal mixing bowls up to another level. These have a pour spout, non-slip silicone base, a handle for easy mixing leverage, and measuring guide markings on the inside.
They normally sell for around $30+, but are just $25 today - perfect timing for upcoming holiday baking.
The bestselling, top-rated, and audience-favorite robotic vacuum just came out with a new and improved model, and you can suck up yours today for just $200 with code MMSM8QWT, matching a launch deal we saw last week.
It has the features you guys loved about the first model - remote control, a slim body to reach under furniture, and large dust box, but boasts upgraded suction power, so the vacuum will sense when it needs to use a little extra juice to take care of a mess. It also has slightly larger wheels to easier navigate over door jams and higher-pile carpets, plus a larger HEPA-style filter to better trap allergens and pet hair. How convenient!
We don’t even touch plastic at this point, our love for double-walled glass is matched only by the glass’ fragility, and many readers have commented in their sensitivity to the metallic taste that... metal can add.
The MYMUG is made in America, available in 4 sizes, microwave and dishwasher safe, safe in general, and insulated. It feels like ceramic, doesn’t impart any flavors, and my favorite feature by far is the base, which allows water to drain during the dishwashing cycle.
We’ve been drinking out of a pair of these mugs for a few weeks, and while we didn’t get to try the lids unfortunately, we’re huge fans of the mugs for everyday use.
Typically selling for $14, you can grab yourself a two-pack of Amazon’s best-selling silicone baking mats for $11.
If you haven’t used one before, you should now that nothing will stick to these. They’re made of silicone, flexible, and fit onto standard-sized baking sheets, making clean up a breeze. Plus, since you won’t be baking nonstick spray into your cookie sheets, they’ll look like new for longer.
In addition to being bestsellers, these mats boast a near-perfect 4.7-star rating with almost 2,000 reviews.
You need dishwasher detergent anyway, so you might as well buy it on sale. While supplies last, Amazon’s offering a $4 coupon on this 78-pack container of Cascade Complete ActionPacs, nearly a 25% savings.

Pants...gotta have ‘em, am I right?
For one day only, Amazon’s running a big sale on men’s pants, with options available from the likes of IZOD, Haggar, Van Heusen, and more. Almost everything costs under $30, so get yourself some khakis, chinos, and golf pants on the cheap, before they sell out.
Just note that a lot of the styles have multiple color options available, so while you’re browsing the sale page, pay more attention to the style and brand than the particular color.
Fanny packs (or waist packs if you want to be fancy) are making a comeback. You can pick up this fanny pack-like CamelBak from REI today for $30. It holds 1.5 liters of water and has pockets for keys and phone too.
For comparison, these are selling for $45+ on Amazon.
Amazon’s back at it again with another sample box deal. This time around, $8 gets you eight or more protein products from Optimum Nutrition, plus an $8 credit on your next eligible protein purchase from Amazon. If you were going to buy any of these products anyway, then this is a no-brainer.
It’s somehow almost November, but basically still weirdly warm everywhere in the US. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take advantage of a really good winter-focused deal when it happens. Uniqlo is giving you $10 off their Ultra Light Down Collection, in any color, plus free shipping on everything. Maybe now you’ll be ready for the next random act of weather as our planet slowly dies.
It’s going to be too cold to schlep to the gym soon, but this $15 resistance band set lets you get a full workout in any room in your house, so you can stay in shape through all the holiday overeating.
Merrell may be most known for their quality hiking footwear, but they also make some really great outerwear and layers. Right now, they’re giving you an extra 10% off their sale styles, which include a bunch styles of for men and women, with the code OCTOBERSALE10. Some styles have a couple colors to choose from as well, and even the leather boots for women are waterproof.

Take up to 70% off select styles (Including their über-popular Ghost Whisperer Down) when you use the code MHWNOV70 at checkout. Go climb a mountain or hike a trail. Or just look like you do those things while walking the dog.
It feels a little weird to say this, but Banana Republic has gotten real good lately. They straddle the line of business casual and trendy streetstyle and it’s kind of great. And if you’ve noticed too, it’s the best time to take advantage of it because they’re giving an extra 50% off all sale styles. Maybe it’s time to give BR a little more respect.
Note: Discount shown in cart.
We’re currently putting together a shorts roundup titled, “All Shorts Should Have Built-in Liners”, so that should tell you how we feel about the category. Get yourself a pair starting at $25 with a preorder.
TrueREVO is already a successful manufacturer of athletic apparel, so there’s not much concern when it comes to the Kickstarter factor here. The creatively named “World’s Best Running Shorts-II” are indeed a sequel to a product they’re already selling.
Merino these are not, but for $25 with the well-designed cellphone pocket, they’re in impulse buy range for those that want to try out shorts with liners.
TrueREVO is even rolling out lined pants here, along with tank tops, and variants of the shorts where the liner is removable. Unfortunately we didn’t get to try the pants or the Anthra collection, but we found the shorts and tank top to be very comfortable.
If you think you don’t need new socks, you’re probably wrong. Especially with the change of the season and the ability to lose a single sock at any time of the day, this 20% off sale from Backcountry is for you. Grab some pairs from Smartwool (maker of your favorite socks), DarnTough, Icebreaker (both in the top five of your favorite socks), Pendleton, and more.
Get the waterproof protection you want, with the breathability of a sweatshirt with Under Armour’s Swacket (yes, it’s really called that). Right now, they’re taking 25% off all their styles of swackets (it doesn’t get less awkward to type that) and have the right outerwear for the awkward weather we’re having.
When it comes to having a corner on the market, nothing really compares to Nike. And right now, use the code 20EXTRA and take an extra 20% off their sale styles for both men and women. Everything you could need for a good workout wardrobe is included, from apparel, to sneakers, to gear.
$48 for a year’s-supply of razor blades is a great deal, especially from Dorco. $24 for the same pack (with code KINJA1024) is downright unbelievable.
That price includes a mishmash of products, but basically, it boils down to 28 cartridges, including a mix of three, four, and six-blade models. Obviously, it depends on how often you shave, but for many of you, that should last at least a year. It would probably last me like three.

A recent Target ad announced that they’d have SNES Classics available online on November 1, but the catch is that it’s only going to be available for Target REDCard holders.
But really, if you ever shop at Target, you ought to get a REDCard anyway. It comes in both credit and debit card varieties (the latter just draws directly from any bank account), has no annual fee, and gets you 5% off everything Target sells, plus free shipping on all online orders.
When CogniToys asked me to check out their latest educational toy, STEMosaur, I was fearful it would end up in the pile of “nothing special” STEM toys that litter my kids’ room. I was absolutely wrong.
At just $99, an Indiegogo exclusive price for Kinja readers, STEMosaur packs an inordinate amount of education, games, jokes, core coding concepts, and more into his softly textured plastic shell.
My six year old was excited to fit plastic parts, drive screws, and connect ribbon cables to assemble her new toy. After installing the CogniToys app and getting him connected to the internet, STEMosaur’s gruff little voice came to life as he immediately started asking and answering questions. My daughter was soon playing games, learning facts, and laughing through full conversations with him.
In minutes, STEMosaur went from a box of parts, to a toy, to a playmate, to a companion. Your $99 Indiegogo pledge (expected to ship in December) gets you a smart educational toy with near infinite replay value, thanks to a solid out-of-the-box design and regular CogniToys system updates. As an added bonus, he’s cute and falls low on the ever-growing list of STEM toys in my home that may one day become sentient and kill my family.
