It’s not surprising that Amazon would run a home theater audio sale with the Super Bowl now just two weeks away. But holy crap, we weren’t expecting so many great options.
Of course, we have to start with the Sonos deals. The new Beam sound bar is $50 off, while the Sonos Sub, the Playbase, and the larger Playbar sound bar are all $100 off. Even at full price, the Beam is arguably the best value in the Sonos lineup, so that’s where we’d recommend most people start. And of course, you can also pair any Sonos Play:1s or Ones with any of these products to use as satellite speakers.
But those aren’t the only home theater audio deals that Amazon’s running. For an all-time low $399, you can enjoy 5.1 surround sound with this easy-to-set-up Polk Audio sound bar system. The subwoofer and satellite speakers connect to the sound bar wirelessly (though you’ll have to plug them in for power), which means you won’t have to run any wires from the front of the room to the back.
Or you can go all out and upgrade to the future of audio: Dolby Atmos. Both of the Vizio systems in the sale use upward-firing drivers to bounce sound off of your ceiling, creating a truly immersive sound stage. The $700 model is a 3.1.2 system, with three forward-facing and two upward-facing drivers, and the $900 version includes two satellite speakers as well for 5.1.4 sound. They’re both $100 off, but if you ask me, the $900 model is a far better value.
Even at today’s all-time low $24, Samsung’s fast-charging Qi stand isn’t the cheapest Qi charger we’ve seen, but it earns its keep with the ability to prop up your phone, a cooling fan, multiple coils for flexible device placement, and an included wall adapter. Obviously, it’ll work great with Samsung phones, but it’s a great Qi stand for any device that charges wirelessly, including iPhones.
Just note that this is a Gold Box deal, meaning this price is only available today, and it could sell out early.
Bias lighting behind your TV or computer monitor can reduce eyestrain, improve perceived contrast, yada yada yada. Let’s be honest, most people get it because it looks cool, and that’s fine! Power Practical makes some of our favorite bias lights, and its color version is on sale today in all four sizes, no promo code required. This model can output 15 colors, 10 brightness levels, and three fade modes, so you can adjust it to fit your mood, or your favorite team’s colors.
Range extenders aren’t a cure-all for your networking woes, but if you have one device in one particular corner of your home that just can’t seem to get a great signal from your router, this $17 extender might be all you need.
While I’m sure the sound quality and noise cancellation abilities of these Mpow over-ear Bluetooth headphones don’t live up to the likes of Sony’s WH1000XM3s line or Bose’s QC35s, they annihilate the competition on price at just $40.
If you’re on a budget, and want to drown out airplane noise or your annoying coworkers, they could be worth trying out. Just be sure to use promo code MPOW143H at checkout to save $20.
LG’s 2017 OLED TVs have achieved something of a cult status thanks to their inky dark black levels and vibrant colors. Today though, we’ve got the best price we’ve ever seen on the 2018 55" model, and a solid deal on the 65" as well.
The picture quality should be nearly identical (which is a good thing!), but the 2018 models include LG’s ThinQ voice assistant and support for HFR (high frame rate video) up to 120 FPS. HFR content doesn’t really exist yet, but a few movies are expected to come to streaming services starting later this year, so if you’re planning on using the TV for several years, it might be worth it for future-proofing purposes.
Walmart has the 55" marked down to $1,497, and the 65" to $2,297. The former is a match for the best price we’ve seen, and the latter is the best price we’ve seen since October. Order now, and you’ll have it in time for the large, important football game!
Half of your electronics charge over USB these days, so it makes sense to buy power strips that include both AC outlets and USB ports. For just $12, this Aukey power strip includes four of each.
If you want to be able to plug things in at your desk without squeezing your arm behind it, or awkwardly crouching down to find a power strip, this cube-shaped charger from Aukey sits atop of your desk, and includes four easy-to-access AC outlets, plus three USB charging ports. Just use promo code AUKEYK06 at checkout to get it for $19.
Anker’s reader-favorite SoundCore Bluetooth speaker spawned a whole line of products, but the original model is still great, and it’s back on sale for a great low price of $23, no promo code required.
The SoundCore’s headlining feature is its 24 hour battery life, and in my experience, that’s a conservative estimate. It also packs in dual 6W drivers for room-filling sound, and looks pretty great to boot.
If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably spent a lot of January in the gym and too much time listening to other dudes excessively grunt. Luckily these $90 PowerBeats3 headphones are down to one of their lowest prices ever.
Before you wag your finger about sound quality, Beats have come a long way in recent years, improving a lot since being acquired by Apple. And this pair even include the easy-pairing W1 chip, making them a great option for iPhone-owning fitness buffs, or anyone whose ears aren’t compatible with AirPods (see: me). Grab a pair in “Neighborhood Collection” colors, which include Break Blue, Turf Green, Asphalt Gray and Brick Red.
This is a $10 markdown from the price currently on Amazon.
It’s 2019, which means you almost definitely already own a pair of Bluetooth earbuds. But I submit that you should actually have a second, spare pair that can live in your luggage or gym bag, for when you inevitably forget your favorites at home.
This pair from TaoTronics is sweatproof, magnetic, and most importantly of all, runs for nine hours on a charge, which is about as good as it gets for wireless earbuds. Not bad for $16 (with code KINJA26V).
TCL’s affordable 6-series TVs are famous for offering every form of HDR (including top-shelf Dolby Vision), local dimming zones for better contrast and black levels, and even excellent Roku software. So if you want to upgrade before the large, important football game in a few weeks, the 65" model just dropped to a new all-time low price of $850, which is actually $80 cheaper than we saw on Black Friday.
Anker’s PowerPort line of multi-port USB chargers are our readers’ favorites, and this model is one of the few that includes USB-C Power Delivery, which outputs up to 30W to power devices like the new MacBooks, or even a Nintendo Switch. It normally sells for $54, but Anker’s knocked that down to $35 today, no promo code required.
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:
- One month for $6 | Usually $7
- One year for $35 | Usually $40
- Three years for $90 | Not offered to the general public at all
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.
Winter isn’t done with us yet, so grab this 8 pound container of Safe Paw ice melter for $21 on Amazon today. It’s non-toxic, pet safe, child safe, and concrete safe, and it will melt ice even in sub-zero temperatures. It’s like a shovel that you sprinkle.
You know the old TV gag where they look at a hotel room under a blacklight and you see all of the filth and bodily fluids the characters have been sleeping in? Well, now you can do that yourself with this $8 blacklight flashlight. That’s a fantastic price if you don’t subscribe to the notion that ignorance is bliss.
So, you want 2019 to be the year that switch to a standing desk. Congrats! Just don’t be too smug about it with your coworkers; it’s not a great look.
Anyway, depending on your budget and priorities, you’ve got three different options on sale today.
1) A standing desk converter that sits on your existing desk, and raises at will with the help of springs and struts. At $120 with promo code ERGONOMIC, this is your cheapest option.
2) An electric standing desk converter, which is essentially the same as the above, but it raises with the press of a button. I don’t personally think it’s worth the added cost ($200 with code ELECTRIC), but to each their own.
3) A real-ass standing desk that actually replaces your existing desk, and raises or lowers at will. At $300 with promo code DESK2019, this is one of the cheapest full standing desks we’ve ever seen, if you’re really ready to commit. Just note that it raises with a lever; it’s not electric.
So whichever you choose, you won’t have to commit to standing for eight hours a day; you can sit or stand at will, depending on how your legs are feeling. But again, please don’t be that guy.
On the one hand, deep fried foods are bad for you. On the other hand, DIY fried pickles. For $35, I know what I would choose.
KitchenAids are good for a lot more than mixing dough; you just need the right attachments. For just $75 on Amazon today (down from the typical $90+), you can get two essential accessories in one package: a shredder/slicer and a food grinder. The former can make quick work of splicing vegetables or grating cheese, while the latter can grind meats and even stuff sausage casings with the included accessories. It’s like your own personal sous chef.
I’ll start this blog by stating clearly that there were better Instant Pot deals late last year. Plenty of them. But if 2018's sale patterns and the first few weeks of this year are any indication, we might not see many discounts at all for the first half of 2019.
So if you didn’t get an Instant Pot over the holidays, and you desperately want one (you do!), Amazon’s offering a $12 coupon on the six quart model right now, and a $20 coupon on the family-sized eight quart. Just note that you won’t see the discount until checkout.
This thing can turn frozen-ass chicken breasts into pull-apart chicken in like 15 minutes without thawing, it makes great stocks and stews, and even foolproof, fast rice. It’s not the right tool for every cooking job, but it’s remarkably versatile, and can save you a ton of time in the kitchen.
You’ve spent the month thus far dutifully following up on your New Year’s resolutions (right?), so it’s probably time to upgrade your home to match the new and improved you. Wayfair’s Ultimate 4-Day Clearance sale is here to help you do just that, with up to 75% off everything from storage solutions to wall art to mattresses, in addition to discounted furniture for every room in your house. But while there are thousands of home products to sift through, there’s only four days to do it, so get moving on this deal before it packs up and goes home.
Click and Grow’s indoor herb garden has been described as “ idiot-proof indoor farming,” and you can get the mini starter kit for $90 today from Huckberry, or the full-sized indoor garden for $180, both 10% less than usual.
The mini kit comes with three maintenance-free basil cartridges to get you started, and the full sized kit includes three basils, three mini tomatoes, and three lettuce pods, but you can also purchase plenty of other flowers, herbs, and vegetables from Amazon to suit your taste. Functionally, they’re very similar to MiracleGro’s line of Aerogardens, but aesthetically, they look like Apple products in the best possible way.
Find someone who looks at you the way cats look at the PetFusion cat lounger. Normally $50, it very rarely goes on sale, because with 6,000 reviews and an insane 4.8-star rating, it probably sells itself. It’s made of recycled cardboard, its curved design makes it easier for cats to scratch, and the grooves of the cardboard are perfect for rubbing in some catnip for hours of (your) entertainment.
These deals never last long, so I’d go ahead and pounce on it while you can.
This AmazonBasics space heater is fairly barebones, but it’ll do the job of warming your bones for just $20 today. That’s the second best deal we’ve ever seen, and compared to other space heaters out there, it’s a steal. And even when winter ends, it’ll work as a standalone fan, albeit a largeish one.
If you’re the type to carry around a blade on the daily, your options just got a lot more portable. Hot off the heels of a hugely successful crowdfunding campaign, the lilliputian WESN Titanium Microblade just launched on Amazon last month, and you can save 15% with promo code 15QAW1EC, which brings it down to $43. I can think of no better tool to open all of the boxes you order from Kinja Deals.
WESN also makes an adorable leather sheath, and it’s also 15% off with code 1552OYO3.
This is a desk. It looks a perfectly functional horizontal surface on which to work, and its legs even have a little bit of razzle dazzle, but it’s just a desk. I’m sure it’s not the best desk you can buy, but it’s $40, so if you’re still using, like, a stack of pizza boxes, or a large cable spool, or your lap as your desk, it would surely be an upgrade. Just use code shelf001 to get the deal.
Despite the proliferation of affordable smart outlet switches over the past couple of years, we haven’t seen many weatherproof options yet, and we’ve seen even fewer models with multiple outlets that can be controlled separately. This $23 option from iClever though has both of those features, and can be controlled with your phone, your voice assistant, or even IFTTT. Just be sure to use promo code SMARTPLUG25 at checkout to save a few bucks.
Valentine’s Day is officially one month out, which means it’s time to start planning something special for the special someone. If you’re smart, you’ll consider getting the object of your affection a bouquet of flowers, because flowers are classic, easy to procure, and — thanks to this deal from 1800Flowers — not too pricey.
For a limited time, if you order select Valentine’s Day flowers to be delivered sometime between February 9 and 14, 1800 Flowers will give you 25% off. Just use promo code LOVEEARLY and get your S.O. anything from a classic bouquet of roses or a pretty lily arrangement, to a not-so-traditional heart-shaped bamboo plant or very extra heart-shaped rose wreath. Meanwhile, I personally am feeling emotional about this puppy made out of carnations, and also this gift basket filled with chocolate. (Single men of New York City, are you listening?!)
Firstleaf is an online wine club that learns your preferences, offers tons of options, and most importantly, saves you money compared to buying from the store. It’s a solid deal any time, but it’s even better for our readers from now through the holidays.
Every new Firstleaf member gets an introductory delivery with three bottles of wine for just $15, plus $5 shipping. Every box thereafter includes six bottles for $80, plus $10 shipping. If you use this link and promo code Kinja when you sign up though, you’ll get free shipping on every box for your entire first year. That’ll save you over $100 if you get a new box every month.
Stop me if you’ve heard this recently, but Amazon’s running a supplement sale today. But! This one features Nutrex’s Hawaiian supplements, which we have not seen much of in the rest of January’s fitness-focused Gold Boxes. The Hawaiian Spirulina energy-boosting formulations in particular have insanely great Amazon reviews, but check out the rest of the sale for products that support workout recovery, promote eye health, and build muscle.
If you’re still clinging to those New Year’s fitness goals, Nike’s here to help with a one-weekend flash sale on over 1,000 styles. Just use promo code FIT2019 on any of the products featured here to save 20% at checkout.
Compared to previous flash sales we’ve seen, this one seems a bit heavier on running apparel and shoes, but if that’s not your sport, just use the sidebar to filter by product type, and you can surely find something to fit your wardrobe. This sale ends Monday at midnight, and the best stuff could sell out early, so you should run, not walk over to Nike.
No matter how what method you use to commute, it has drawbacks. Public transportation makes you beholden to other people’s schedules, driving a car forces you to combat traffic and is environmentally unfriendly, and riding a bike means you’ll arrive at the office winded and drenched in sweat.
Or, it used to mean that, until somebody invented the Hyper 700c E-Ride Electric Commuter Bike or mountain bike. You still get the fitness benefits of pedaling, but a motor helps you along when you face a challenging hill or just want to take it easy for a stretch. Such a smart idea! My morning commute is literally less than 100 feet, and I’m still trying to convince myself I don’t need this.
Nike Dri-FIT tees are the chameleons of the workout gear ecosystem, equally at home in the weight room, on a run, or in a pickup sports league. If you ever exercise, you literally can’t have enough of these things. So go ahead and sprint over to Amazon to grab as many as you can for $15 before the prices go back to normal.
Don’t see your size in stock? Don’t sweat it; the deal is available on multiple colors, but the greys and blacks seem to have the most sizes on sale.
Assuming you aren’t just marking time in your relationship, watches can make for great Valentine’s Day gifts, and Breda’s here to help with an exclusive $30 off for our readers with promo code KINJA30. That code will work on any regular priced watch, and there are a ton of options available for both men and women. They’ve got square watches, circular watches, watches with leather bands, watches with metal straps...and somehow, they all look really good.
The clocks’s ticking on this deal though—it ends on 1/31—so don’t procrastinate on Valentine’s Day like you do every other year.
The only thing better than wandering through the boho fantasy land that is Anthropologie IRL, is getting sucked into one of their sales online. Right now, everything in the sale section at Anthro, from unique apparel and accessories to creatively designed homewares, is an additional 40% off. To top it off, there’s nothing you need to do to take advantage of this deal; just add to cart, and the discount will be automatically applied. Oh, and by the way, there are currently over 1,100 items under Anthropologie’s sale section. Happy browsing!
If you’re thinking of going outside anytime soon, this Eddie Bauer sale will serve you well. In honor of the holiday weekend, the outdoor retailer is taking up to 60% off everything on their site (excluding tents, sleeping bags, and non-Eddie Bauer brand products). And on top of that, they’re offering an extra 50% off their sale section with promo code ALPINE50. Stock up jackets, parkas, boots, and everything else you need for the season before these sales cease.
Waterpik is an easier (and they would argue more effective) way to “floss” between your teeth, and Amazon is taking discounting the Waterpick Cordless Advanced Water Flosser to just $70 after you clip the $10 coupon (and the $80 list price is a pretty solid deal, even before the coupon). That’s a whole lot less than a visit to the dentist to fix a cavity.
The long weekend blowout sales are upon us, and Lucky Brand wants to make sure you get lucky with some deeply discounted apparel. Right now, take up to 75% off Lucky’s already marked-down sale sections for men and women. So don’t waste the weekend; load up on tees, tops, denim, shoes, and even some parkas like it’s your lucky day.
Gear up for long-weekend outdoor adventures with REI’s January Clearance sale, featuring up to 50% off all kinds of apparel and equipment from a range of your favorite brands, including Patagonia, The North Face, Sorel, and more. Also notably among the on-sale items is this 20-degree sleeping bag, one of our favorites.
Many of these selected styles are new to the sale section, and they likely won’t last long. So be sure to gather your supplies before we say “Happy trails!” to this sale on January 22.
Still haven’t given up on those new year’s fitness goals? This resistance band set lets you get a full workout in any room in your house, with up to 150 pounds of resistance if you use all of the bands in concert. And at $16 (with promo code MPOW146A), it’s quite a bit more cost-effective than joining a gym.
