With its incredibly durable construction and lifetime warranty, Anker’s PowerLine II Dura might be the last Lightning cable you ever have to buy. For a limited time, you can get the 10' model (white and black only) for just $13, or about $2 less than usual, and about $.25 less than the 6' one. I have one of these running behind my couch for a leisurely charging experience - five stars would recommend.
The Kano Computer kit is a great teaching tool to show kids how computers are built and programmed, and at $95, it’s within $1 of its all time low. If you have any kids, nieces, or nephews with birthdays on the horizon, this would be a great gift idea.
$8 is cheaper than a lot of standard sized mouse pads, but today, that gets you a massive 2.5' x 1' model that can accommodate your keyboard as well. So luxurious! Just be sure to use promo code BJUNAR55 at checkout to save a couple bucks.
Once you have a Hub, you can add motion sensors, smart outlets, water leak sensors, and more to expand the system’s capabilities. You could also opt for the Home Monitoring Kit for $150, down from $200, which includes a Hub and several sensors in one box.
USB-C is eating the world, so it’s probably a good idea to invest in quality cables that will last. Anker’s PowerLine cables are our readers’ favorites, and the nylon-wrapped PowerLine+ models are even better. Get a USB 3.0 to USB-C 6' cable for $10 today, or about $4 less than usual.
You know when you ask someone to take a picture of you and your family on vacation, and you quickly learn that almost nobody understands how to take a decent photo? With a tripod, you can be in total control of those long range selfies, and this $13 AmazonBasics model works with most DSLRs and can extend from 16.5 inches up to 50 inches.
The past year or so has seen a welcome deluge of Wi-Fi router innovation, and Portal seems to be one of the best newcomers in the space, particularly for smaller dwellings in congested, urban environments.
Portal includes app-based configuration, nine internal antennas, and mesh capabilities if you buy more than one...table stakes these days for a good router. But while almost all home Wi-Fi routers limit you to a small number of public channels over 5GHz, Portal also opens up four “DFS” channels that are typically reserved for military use and commercial radar.
The law allows home routers to use these DFS channels, but they must shift off of them for a set amount of time whenever they detect active radar to avoid interference. Portal does just this, and moves all of your devices off of the busy channel in the background automatically, and shifts them back on when it’s safe. That means that most of the time, these channels are practically empty, so you won’t have to worry about interference from your neighbors’ Wi-Fi networks. This Digital Trends review has a thorough explanation of the technology, if you’re curious.
Portal retails for $200, and has sold for around $150 for the last few months, but for a limited time, you can try it out for $128 with promo code KINJAWIN. I bought this thing earlier this year, and absolutely love it.
VPNs are in the news these days, and with good reason. So if you’re curious to sign up and start protecting your browsing history and personal data (or, you know, getting around websites’ geoblocks), NordVPN charges less per month than a typical trip to Starbucks.
NordVPN has long been one of the most popular and reliable VPN providers out there, and if you sign up for a one-year membership, promo code VIP70 will drop your annual price from $69 to $48. If you’re sure you want to commit, use this link instead to get a special two year plan for $79 with code 2YSpecial2017. Lifehacker has recommended Nord in some previous guides, but if you have any firsthand experience with the service, sound off in the comments!

Cooking eggs isn’t exactly rocket science, but I’d say the ability to make soft, medium, and hard boiled eggs, plus omelettes and poached eggs at the touch of a button is worth $15. The Dash is Amazon’s top-selling egg cooker, and carries a truly stellar 4.5 star review average from nearly 4,000 customers, so get it while it’s on sale for its best price in months.
I was introduced to Nest Fragrances about two years ago, and I have been in love ever since. These candles have a super long burn time, and the smells radiate throughout the house, without being overwhelming. Right now, save 50% on their Holiday and Birchwood Pine scents, in either candles or reed oil diffusers.
These days, you probably charge as many things over USB as you do over standard AC outlets, so it only makes sense to add some semi-permanent USB ports to your home. Get a top-selling receptacle from TopGreener today for just $15, one of the best deals we’ve seen.
Our readers love simplehuman trash cans, at least to the extent that anyone can love any trash can, and two different models have rare 10% discounts running today.
I actually own both of these, and use the metal one as my kitchen trash can, while the plastic one lives in my closet as a recycling bin. The metal model utilizes a removable liner that makes it easier to empty and replace the bag, but they’re both built like tanks, and look about as good as trash cans can look.
To help you ease into back-to-school season, Amazon’s offering a pretty spectacular deal on a few dozen grocery and household essentials: buy three household or wellness essentials and automatically get 30% off. That includes cleaning supplies,
Whether you’re burning the midnight oil, or just want a brighter workspace throughout the day, this Aukey desk lamp would make a great addition to any office.
It features two brightness modes, plus a clip-on base so you can really put it anywhere you need some extra light. With the code AUKEYLT8, the lamp is just $10.
Steaming your clothes might not get them as crisp as ironing, but it does a decent enough job in a fraction of the time, and for $15, why not? It’s even small enough to pack away in your suitcase.
Philips Wake-Up lights have long been one of our readers’ favorite products, but now Vansky is making its own version for a lot less money.
Just like the Philips light, Vansky’s Sunrise Alarm Clock fades in a sunrise-simulating light for 30 minutes prior to your designated wake-up time, and then finishes the job with your choice of six natural alarms, or an FM radio station. That means by the time your alarm goes off, your body will already have begun the process of waking up, eliminating that awful feeling of being jolted out of a deep REM cycle. You can even choose from seven different light colors, a feature that doesn’t exist on any of Philips’ models.
I’ve had a Philips Wake-Up light for years, and absolutely love it, but $30 is an insanely great price for a feature-packed alternative.
These MIU COLOR glass bottles will make any drink look ten times more expensive. Grab a 6-pack for only $24 when you use the code GB06PACK at checkout. Fool people into thinking you’re drinking a protein shake when it’s really a Shake Shack shake poured out of its paper cup. Or actually put healthy stuff in it, I guess.
A decent duffel bag is something everyone should keep handy, and you can get one for $14 today in the color of your choice, plus a bonus shoe bag. Just be sure to use promo code VMMXKVAI at checkout.
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.
If you’ve ever spent more than 5 seconds sorting through your mismatched food containers to find the right lid, it’s time to throw them all out and upgrade to the uber-popular Rubbermaid Easy Find Lid system.
These containers come in six different sizes, and yet you only have to deal with three different lids, making it much easier to find the right one. The 42 piece set is on sale for $17 today on Amazon. We’ve seen better prices in the past, but this set has been selling for around $20-$24 pretty consistently this year, so you’re saving about $4.
There are few things more irritating than noticing your tires are low on air, and then having to find a bunch of quarters, driving to the gas station, and cursing the heavens when the compressor shuts off before you’ve finished filling all four.
Instead, just buy this tiny $22 compressor, and fill up your own tires from anywhere. You can thank me later.

Amazon’s running its first Adidas Gold Box in a couple of months, with deals on everything from shirts and pants to hats and underwear. These prices are only available today though, and a lot of them will probably sell out early, so run, don’t walk.
If you’ve resolved to get in better shape or improve your posture without any actual time commitment, these discounted balance ball chairs can help you get it done while you’re sitting at your desk.
Amazon is offering the iconic Gaiam Balance Ball Chair in a variety of colors for $60, today only. That’s about $10-$15 less than usual, and if you’re on the fence, you can check Lifehacker’s impressions of the chair for an in-depth review.

Nose hair is a problem a lot of people have but, for some reason, few people take care of. For a limited time, score this Panasonic nose hair trimmer for just $7, and you can be one of those people doing something about it.
Between shedding fur on your seats and a seemingly physiological need to jump into the front seat while you’re passing an 18-wheeler on the freeway, it’s no secret that a lot of dogs don’t do particularly well in the car. So, if you’re planning on taking your dog to the beach for the summer, this hammock seat cover can help keep your backseat fur and slobber-free.
The cover hooks into the headrests on both the front and back seats, creating a kind of loosely enclosed room that will keep your dog safely in the backseat, and her fur a layer removed from your upholstery. Plus, the mesh panel allows your pet to have a great view out the windshield, while also allowing you to check up on them easily.
It’s officially beach season, and if you want to keep your phones protected from the surf and sand, you can get a three-pack of Mpow dry bags for just $10 today with promo code LY37JSB8.
Update: This weekend is your last chance to take advantage of this deal, and they don’t offer discounts often, so don’t miss out.
Now, even with the code, this is still a $250 backpack. I’m not blind to the fact that that’s a lot of money. But every GR1 is hand-built over the course of four hours in the USA, is covered by a lifetime warranty, and by basically all accounts is just incredibly well-made. There’s a very real chance that this will be the last backpack you ever have to buy.

Bralettes are a lazy girl’s best friend when it comes to being comfy and covered. Aerie is having a BOGO on all bralettes and unlined bras, in basically every style you could think of. With most of them priced in the $25-$30 range, that means you’re getting two of them for just $13-$15 each. I recommend stocking up on a couple different styles.
These portable nylon hammocks are marketed towards the camping crowd, but there’s nothing stopping you from setting it up in your backyard, on your patio, or at your nearest park. It only weighs about a pound and rolls up to basically nothing, so you can take it anywhere you want.
That’s the best price Indochino’s offered on this wide a variety of suits, and $20 less than previous exclusive deals we’ve posted.
You do not have to go through the measurement and customization process to lock in this discount. You can checkout now and submit later, which makes it very easy to gift a suit.
Having a suit that fits perfectly is great, but the little details Indochino lets you customize, from your jacket lapels to pocket flaps to accent stiching around your buttons, are where things get fun.
How It Works
Measure and customize from home...
Follow the directions on Indochino’s site to submit your measurements and customize your suit. Once the suit arrives, if anything doesn’t fit quite right, Indochino will provide directions for your local tailor, along with a $75 credit to cover their work. If for whatever reason your tailor cannot resolve the issues, Indochino will remake your suit. Shipping and return shipping are free.
If you live near a showroom...
Purchase your suit online with our discount and take your receipt/account info into an Indochino showroom. They’ll do your measurements, walk you through your customization options, and have your suit delivered to the showroom. Return once it arrives for any final alterations if they’re needed.

LifeStraws are great backpack staples for hiking, or nice gifts for the outdoorsmen in your life. And right now, they’re just $15, which is about as cheap as you’re likely to see them, with a few short-lived exceptions.
If you aren’t familiar, these allow you to sip directly from basically any source of fresh water you find in nature, and the filters will catch 99.9999% of bacteria, and 99.9% of parasites. That could come in handy during camping trips, or as you cling to life in a future post-nuclear hellscape.
The Philips OneBlade is the shaver of choice for our entire staff (except Jillian), and one of the most popular products we’ve ever listed, but Philips recently raised the bar with the release of the OneBlade Pro, and Amazon’s taking $10 off today, or $20 when you bundle it with some extra blades.
First, let’s talk about what’s unchanged from the original OneBlade. The Pro still uses the same blades which last for four months (or most likely longer, if you aren’t using it every day), it still works in any direction, you can still use it with or without shaving cream, and it’s still water resistant, so you can use it in the shower without fear.
The biggest difference you’ll notice out of the box is the Pro’s adjustable 14-length comb, compared to the three static combs included with the standard OneBlade. That gives you more flexibility to groom your beard just so, and makes it a lot easier to achieve a smooth fade, if that’s what you’re going for. It’s also fewer parts to keep track of.
The other big difference is the battery. It’s lithium-ion this time around, so it lasts twice as long as the original OneBlade (90 minutes vs. 45), recharges eight times as fast (one hour vs. eight), and the built-in LED screen now shows you how much juice you have left, so you’ll know whether you need to pack your charger for trips.
Are these upgrades worth the standard $80 price tag, compared to the original’s $35? Personaly, I don’t think so. But as a happy OneBlade owner, I’m awfully tempted to upgrade for $70, especially since that would get me an extra blade which would normally cost around $15.
For $15 more (the price of one replacement blade), you can get a bundle that includes two extra blades. Just be sure to clip the $10 coupon on the product page.
The original OneBlade also has a $10 coupon available when you purchase it with two extra blades.
Patagonia’s Web Specials section is always full of amazing discounts on gear you’ll actually want to use. For their huge Summer Sale, they’re taking to 50% off those Web Specials and past season products. If you were waiting to pick up winter gear until it was discounted, now is your chance.

$270 is a solid deal for a 1TB Xbox One S bundle with Forza Horizon 3, but it’s spectacular when you throw in an extra controller and a Play & Charge kit for free. I’ve always said that extra controllers are the best console bundle toss-ins, since they don’t really depreciate. You’ll eventually be able to buy any game for $20 or less, but controllers never really dip below $40.
Fallout 4's Pip-Boy smartphone accessory was probably the most sought-after video game tie-in item of all time, but if you missed out a couple years ago, here’s another chance to spend your caps.
Fallout 4 Game of the Year Edition comes out next month with the game and all of its DLC (much of which was excellent), and for $100, it’ll come with a Pip-Boy too. We don’t expect this to stay in stock for long.
