iOttie’s been turning out ultra-popular smartphone dash mounts for years, and several models are cheaper than ever in today’s Amazon Gold Box.

The star of the show here is iOttie’s Qi-compatible mount, which I’ve covered here. It’s similar to their iOttie OneTouch mounts, except that it’ll charge your phone wirelessly as soon as you mount it, so you don’t have to fiddle with any cords. This has sold for $50 pretty much since it was released, but while supplies last, it’s down to $35.

The new OneTouch 4 is also included in the sale, with options available if you prefer a traditional dash or windshield mount, a vent holder, or even one that makes use of your dormant CD slot.


Refurb Echo Dot | $35 | Amazon

You can still get an Echo Dot for $40 as part of Amazon’s Valentine’s Day deals, but if you’re looking to stock up and put them all around your house, it might be worth saving an extra $5 by buying refurbished.


Phone Stand | $6 | Amazon | Promo code 7LM3H6FB

There’s not a whole lot to say here: This phone stand has a nearly perfect review average form almost 7,000 customers, looks great, and is only $6 today with code 7LM3H6FB. Why wouldn’t you put one on your desk?


Refurb Dell 31.5" Full-HD Ultra-Wide Viewing Angle IPS Monitor with HDMI | $150 | Woot
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If size trumps resolution for your monitor needs, this 31.5" 1080p Dell display is just $150 on Woot today, if you don’t mind buying a refurb.

1080p feels a little dated in the age of 4K, but it is at IPS display, which means it’ll have great color accuracy and viewing angles.


Logitech Z623 | $90 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you still listen to music, or any sounds really, through your computer’s built-in speakers, it’s time for an intervention. The Logitech Z623 speaker set was one of Lifehacker readers’ five favorite computer audio systems , and it’s down to its best price ever on Amazon today.


Lefun 8W08SK Smart Power Strip Work With Alexa | $26 | Amazon | Promo code ETDWL58B
Photo: Amazon

At $26 (with code ETDWL58B), 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). Why has nobody else thought to make this yet?

The free control app and Alexa will recognize the power strip as six different devices (four AC outlets, the USB ports, and the entire power strip), all of which you can name and control from anywhere.


Do instant film cameras make any practical sense in 2018? Not really, but neither do vinyl records or tariffs, and they’ve both made strong comebacks.

Today only, $75 gets you a Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 camera, plus some film and other accessories to get started, in the color of your choice. Just make sure you take pictures of your pictures, and put them on Instagram so everyone can enjoy them.


Beats Studio3 Wireless Headphones | $249 | Amazon

If you haven’t paid attention to Beats headphones in awhile, they’ve actually started to get really good. And if you own Apple devices, they pair just as easily as AirPods, thanks to Apple’s custom W1 chip.

For a limited time, the top-of-the-line Beats Studio3s are down to $249 or $100 less than usual.


15% off PicasoLabs Leather Sleeves with promo code KINJA015 | Amazon | Plus $8 for custom engraving
Photo: Amazon

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.

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. Needless to say, these also make for a fantastic Valentine’s Day gift.


Peak Design Everyday Messenger | $185+ | MassDrop
Photo: Amazon

Peak Design’s Everyday messenger bag is our readers’ favorite camera bag, but finding a decent deal on it is like getting a shot of a weasel riding a woodpecker. So if it’s been on your wish list, be sure to grab one today from MassDrop, starting at $185. Even on sale, it’s a splurge, but it comes with a lifetime warranty, and it should last you for years and years.


Vogek XXL Mouse Pad With Phone Stands | $15 | Amazon | Promo code VOGEK136
Photo: Amazon

Update: Promo code VOGEK136 works now.

We’ve seen other oversized mouse pads before, but I have to say, built-in leather kickstands for your phone are a pretty unique touch. They fold flat into the mat when you don’t need them too, so your mouse can glide unabated. Use promo code VOGEK136 to get it for $15.


B&O Play Beoplay H7 Over-Ear Wireless Headphones | $200 | Amazon | Promo code KINJA15B
Graphic: Shep McAllister

As good as they were when they launched a few years ago (and they are very good), Bang & Olufsen’s Beoplay H7 over-ear Bluetooth headphones were a tough sell at their original $450 price tag. But now, the street price on them is a much more palatable $250, and our readers can save an extra $50 on a pair with promo code KINJA15B (must purchase from Roberts LP via Amazon).


NETGEAR 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch | $14 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If your router doesn’t include enough ethernet ports for your liking, this 5-port gigabit switch from NETGEAR is a cheap and easy way to solve that. $14 is the best price Amazon’s listed since last July.


Three Months DIRECTV NOW + Apple TV 4K | $105 | DIRECTV NOW
Screenshot: DIRECTV NOW

DirecTV Now is one of the better over-the-top cable replacements out there, and with this deal, there’s very little reason not to give it a try.

Advertisement

For a limited time, if you prepay for three months of the service at $35 per month, you’ll get a 4K Apple TV included for free. That Apple TV costs $179 normally, so you’re basically getting a $74 discount on the box, plus three months of live TV. No brainer.


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.

Last month, they offered our readers $10 off two year memberships, but this time around, you get a few more choices, ranging from a quick taste of the service to an extended commitment with additional savings:

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.

OPOLAR Portable Battery-Powered Fan | $20 | Amazon | Promo code KI7H5YCU

Office too warm? This clever fan fits in your hand, or can be folded back to turn into a desk. Plus, its built-in USB-rechargeable battery can run for up to 20 hours on the slowest setting, or a respectable five on the fastest. Just use code KI7H5YCU at checkout to blow that price down to $20.


Backyard Playset Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Your kids will host all of the neighborhood’s playdates if you pick up one of these backyard playsets. Maybe that’s not exactly a selling point, but there are several great options available on sale, today only in Amazon’s Gold Box.


Delta Faucet In2ition Two-In-One Shower | $40 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Delta’s In2itions are our readers’ favorite shower heads, and this 2-in-1 model is just $40 today, easily the best price we’ve ever seen.

Note: The $40 deal is offered by a third party seller, but if they sell out, Amazon also has it marked down to $54 directly. That’s obviously not as good a deal, but it is the best price they’ve offered since 2016.


Greenco Bidet | $19 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

A lot of people are reflexively appalled by the idea of a bidet, which makes no sense, because they’re amazing. Today on Amazon, you can score a Greenco Bidet attachment that will work with just about any toilet for just $19. That’s practically nothing for a product you’ll use just about every day. This deal could sell out any time though, so purchase or get off the pot.


The bestselling, top-rated, and audience-favorite robotic vacuum got upgraded to a new and improved model late last year, and you can suck up yours today for just $180, a whopping $70 less than usual, and an all-time low.

Advertisement

It has the features you guys loved about the original RoboVac 11, including a remote control, a slim body to reach under furniture, and a 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.


Kusonkey Universal Socket | $8 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

While its grip might not be quite as secure as a perfectly-sized socket, this $8 universal socket can get a good-enough hold on almost any bolt, not to mention oddly-shaped things like hooks, without taking up a ton of space in your tool box.


Dr. Meter OBD2 Wi-Fi Code Scanner | $12 | Amazon | Promo code V7UY5UF7

You’ve heard of Automatic’s smart driving assistant, but if $130 is too rich for your blood, this OBD2 dongle costs over 90% less (with code V7UY5UF7), connects to any iPhone or Android device over Wi-Fi, and can fulfill many of the same functions using various third party apps.

The most obvious use case here is understanding and clearing check engine codes, but these things give you access to pretty much all of the sensor data in your vehicle, at a much more granular level than you’d get from all of the symbols in your instrument cluster.


Up to 50% off Presto Cleaning products | Amazon

Amazon is discounting their brand of cleaning products up to 50% today for Prime members. The sale includes multi packs of liquid laundry detergent, laundry detergent pods, and all-purpose cleaner, all made with at least 91% natural ingredients. The liquid laundry detergent will last you 106 loads of laundry, which is pretty impressive for $16.


AmazonBasics Rooftop Cargo Bag | $36 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

If you don’t have enough cargo space in your car for a big road trip, you could:

a) Buy a new car

b) Buy this rooftop bag for $36, an all-time low

One is probably more prudent than the other, even if it’s a little less fun.


Tacklife Electric Arc Lighter | $10 | Amazon | Promo code TEKPK6SU
Power Practical Sparkr Mini Arc Lighter | $19 | Amazon | Promo code L5IMQBFO
Graphic: Shep McAllister

It’s 2017, and your lighter doesn’t need fuel anymore, it just needs to recharge over USB. This flexible neck model is just $10 with code TEKPK6SU, is perfectly designed for lighting candles, and can spark 400 times on a charge from its 220mAh battery.

Advertisement

And in case you missed it last week, our favorite arc lighter, the Power Practical Sparkr Mini, is still down to $19 with code L5IMQBFO. This is an updated model of the Sparkr which fixes an issue that caused the its flashlight to turn on in your pocket, and it also doesn’t make a high-pitched whine like most competing products.


Rain-X Windshield Washer Fluid Additive | $4 | Amazon | Clip the $1 coupon

What if you could apply a coat of Rain-X to your car just by pulling on your windshield wiper stalk? This bottle of washer fluid additive is just $4 today after you clip the $1 coupon, and mixes with your existing washer fluid to encourage water beading. And with a 4.3 star review average from over 450 customers, it seems to actually get the job done.


20% off $25+ Orders | eBay | Promo code PRETTYDAY. Full seller list here.
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Yesterday’s 15% sitewide discount is over and done with, but eBay’s still running a 20% promo code for a variety of home goods sellers, most notably Dyson.

Advertisement

For a limited time, Dyson’s eBay outlet is taking an extra 20% off any $25 order (maximum $50 discount) with promo code PRETTYDAY including vacuums, fans, and even hair dryers. They sell a lot of new stuff on eBay, but the best deals are on the refurbs. Either way, they’re sold directly by Dyson; this isn’t a sketchy third party situation.

My favorite pick here would be the cordless Dyson V7 Animal (refurbished) for $200, perfectly maxing out the discount at $50. If you want a corded upright, the Dyson Cinetic doesn’t require a filter, and is a great option at $168.

That same PRETTYDAY code will work with a number of other (admittedly less exciting) sellers as well, including eBags, Puma, Worx, Zwilling J.A. Henckels, and more, so check out the full list on this page.


6 Night Portugal Vacation | $1474+ | Great Value Vacations

This vacation package is basically your chance to recreate the movie Sideways, except in Portugal, and hopefully less melancholy.

Rates start at $1,474 per person (prices vary based on departure date and airport), and include roundtrip flights to Portugal, six hotel nights across three different cities, breakfasts, a rental car, some wine tastings, and even a river cruise. Just make sure you bring a suitcase big enough to fit a few bottles of vinho for your trip back.

Preorder Micro Wallet | $20+ | Kickstarter
GIF: Kickstarter

Leather can only get so thin, so if you want a truly minimal wallet, you may want to give paper a try.

Advertisement

Or to be more specific, tyvek. It’s waterproof, tear resistant, thin, and flexible... everything you’d want a minimal wallet to be. The upcoming Micro Wallet is made of nothing but carefully folded tyvek with a couple of RFID shields built in. It can hold up to eight cards (though in my experience, it performs much better with six), and comes in a few standard black designs, or your choice of unique artwork.

Eight commissioned designs are available already, and more will likely unlock through the course of the Kickstarter, which has already raised nearly $100,000. Preorder to get one for $20, or two for just $28, with bigger discounts available for larger orders.

We sort through the noise of Kickstarter to find you preorder discounts worth taking advantage of. Someone on our team has tested a prototype (or final version) of every Kickstarter we cover.


Philips OneBlade + 2 Replacement Blades | $27 | Amazon | After $10 coupon

Update: Temporarily out of stock, but you can still order it for this price, and get it once Amazon has more available.

Advertisement

We didn’t think Philips OneBlade deals could get better than the $17 price tag we saw around Black Friday, but I think this actually has it beat.

Amazon’s currently listing the OneBlade plus two replacement blades for just $27 after a $10 coupon is applied at checkout. That’s $8 less than the regular price of the OneBlade by itself, with no replacements. And even if you already own a OneBlade, this is only $2 more than buying two replacement heads by themselves, and you’re actually getting three blades, plus another shaver.

If you aren’t familiar with this thing yet, Shane shared his thoughts about it on Gear.

Backcountry is here to help you stay toasty (or just help you grab new gear) with 20% off any full-priced item with the code TAKEOFF20.

Nintendo Switch | $264 | Target
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Update: This one sold out right as we hit publish. Sorry!

While we’ve seen some good Switch deals as byproducts of eBay sitewide sales over the last few weeks, this is the best discount we’ve seen direct from a major retailer. Plus, you’ll save an extra 5% with Target REDCard.

Unfortunately, the deal is only available on the Neon model, not the more popular Gray.


I know it looks ridiculous, but a gooseneck tablet stand really is the best way to play your Switch in bed. Get one for $11 from uGreen today with promo code 9HV88DWK.


Preorder Far Cry 5 | $48 | Amazon | Prime members only
Preorder Far Cry 5 + $10 Rewards Certificate | Best Buy | Gamers Club Unlocked members only

Far Cry takes on white working class voters with next week’s release of Far Cry 5, meaning you only have a few days left to preorder and save 20% with Amazon Prime. As always, the discount only works on physical copies of the game, and you won’t see the discount until you get to checkout.

If you’re a Gamers Club Unlocked member at Best Buy, you can get the same deal, plus a $10 rewards certificate as well.


Rocket League [Switch] | $15 | Amazon
Image: Nintendo

As far as I’m concerned, the Switch port of Rocket League is up there with fire and the wheel in terms of greatest inventions of all-time. The ability to play a few rounds in the palm of your hand just makes it that much more addictive, and don’t get me started on Samus’s gunship car. Download it for $15 today, or $5 less than usual.


The Switch Pro controller isn’t just one of the best ways to control your Nintendo Switch, it might be one of the best gamepads ever made, period. If you have a Switch and still haven’t picked one up, $59 is within $9 of the best price we’ve seen, and a solid $10 less than usual.


AmazonBasics DualShock 4 Charging Stand | $14 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

AmazonBasics makes its own DualShock charging stand now, and you can grab one for an all-time low $14 today. Sure, you could just plug in a couple of microUSB cables, but this is way cleaner.
