Best Tech Deals

iPad 32GB | $250 | Amazon
iPad 128GB | $330 | Amazon

Unless you really need the iPad Pro (and you almost definitely do not), the standard, vanilla 2018 iPad is a terrific tablet for both consuming and creating media. It even works with the Apple Pencil, the first non-Pro iPad to do so.

While we saw some better deals on these around Black Friday (if you were quick enough to snag them), $250 for 32GB and $330 for 128GB are still terrific prices. If you ask me, it’s worth buying one of these for the express purpose of playing Civilization VI on the go.


Anker Nebula Mars Lite Portable Projector | $220 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

You know about Anker’s soda-can sized Nebula Capsule projector, and you’ve probably seen the sharper and brighter Nebula Mars II as well. But now, there’s an in-between option that you can buy today for less than the usual cost of the Capsule: The Mars Lite.

In terms of picture quality, the Mars Lite is a match for the Mars II, featuring 720p resolution (vs. 480p on the Capsule) and 300 lumens (vs. 100 on the Capsule). Its battery life is a bit shorter than both at three hours, but the biggest difference is that it doesn’t have a built in OS. That means no streaming apps, and crucially, no wireless casting of content from your phone. That’s a big drawback!

That said, you can plug in the streaming dongle of your choice into the Mars Lite’s HDMI port, and achieve the same ends with just a little bit of extra fussing. It’s certainly a worthwhile trade-off when you can get the added brightness and picture quality for just $220.


Refurbished Dell Precision 3520 Mobile Workstation | $900 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Today’s Gold Box is marking down a refurbished Dell Precision 3520 Mobile Workstation to just $900. The 15.6-inch laptop packs Intel i5 processor, NVIDIA Quadro M620 2GB, 512GB SSD storage, 16GB of RAM, and Win10Pro. While gamers should stay clear, it’s more than capable at getting those TPS reports filed by EOD.

Despite being a refurbished unit, this particular unit comes with a 3-Year Dell On-Site Warranty.


Eight-Port TP-Link Unmanaged Ethernet Switch | $20 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

As great as Wi-Fi has gotten, nothing beats a hardwired ethernet connection. If your router doesn’t have enough ports for your liking, that’s an easy fix with this eight-port switch from TP-Link, now just $20.

Best Home Deals

Spring is here, and if you have any upcoming home improvement project, eBay’s DeWALT sale may have a tool deal for you.

Right now, you can save up to 15% off tool combos, drill and impact driver kits, wet-dry vacuums, and more.

Full disclosure, you’ll probably get a better deal if you wait for discounts on Stanley gear, which come from the same foundry. But if you’re a brand label-loyal kind of person, like I am, there’s probably something here for you.


Shiatsu Back Shoulder and Neck Massager | $35 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

The Mueller Report’s got a lot of us stressed out this weekend, but at the very least, you can at least treat yourself to a massage whenever or if ever that thing ever actually drops with this $35 gadget.

We’ve posted a similar product from other companies a few times before, but this one has twice as many shiatsu nodes as most competitors (eight vs. four), so it’ll feel like you have a small army of masseuses tending to your knots.

It’ll also warm up too, which seems really nice. But just make sure to decide soon, this one won’t stick around after today.

Chico’s Apparel for Women Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Today only, Amazon is discounting a bunch of women’s Chico’s apparel. Prices start at $14 and go up to $50. And while I can’t say I’m an expert at women’s clothing, I think these look fine? Like, the women wearing these pieces look comfortable.

I dunno, man.

I really don’t think I’m qualified to talk about fashion, I’ve been wearing non-stop black shirts, underwear, and sweaters for the past 3 months. But, hey, these tops and pants are cheaper today. So, I’m almost certain that’s a positive.

New York Times Best Seller Kindle Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

It’s Sunday which means Amazon’s running a sale on Kindle eBooks. This time around, you get to pick from over a dozen digital copies of New York Times bestsellers including TED Talks: The Official TED Guide to Public Speaking, Calypso by David Sedaris, and CIRCE by Madeline Miller. Prices start at $2 and go all the way up to $7. I’ve included a few notable titles, but go to the main page to see all of the options.

Best Gaming Deals

Curved TVs might be a on their way out, but curved computer monitors actually make some sense, because you actually sit close enough to them for the curve to wrap around your periphery.

Right now you can save a bunch of cash on a couple of BenQ monitors in two sizes, 32" and 35" units. Both units offer AMD FreeSync, high refresh rates (144hz and 100hz), high resolutions (2560x1440 and 3440x1440), and and slim bezels.

These are the lowest prices we’ve seen on this particular units, outside some strange pricing errors.


We’ve seen several deals on high capacity microSD cards lately, but Samsung’s EVO is one of the fastest models out there, and its 256GB variant just dropped to $40, a new all-time low for the U3-rated card. If you need a ton of storage for Switch games or GoPro footage, this is definitely worth a look.

Need even mores space? The 512GB card (yes, that exists) dropped from $200 to $130 a few weeks ago, and is still on sale. If you can get by on 128GB, that card is also down to an all-time low $20.

Samsung 55" Q7CN Curved QLED 4K UHD TV | $950 | Massdrop
Samsung 65" Q7CN Curved QLED 4K UHD TV | $1,400 | Massdrop

Samsung’s quantum dot-powered Q7CN TVs aren’t exactly easy on the bank account, but it would be a stunning upgrade to your home theater, and you can save $150 on the 55" model today. Or you can spend an extra $400 for another 10" of screen real estate.

You can read all about quantum dots here, but the long and short of it that they’re the backbone of a backlighting technology that can produce OLED-quality images on a less expensive LCD panel.

Okay, so with that background out of the way, Samsung’s 2018 Q-series TVs utilize quantum dots to great effect. This Gizmodo review is about the 2017 model, but most of it will still apply to this set.

And, hey, if you got $1,000 sitting there waiting for an awesome TV deal, this is a great one to consider.


Fire 7 Tablet | $35 | Amazon | Prime members only

Amazon’s ultra-affordable Fire tablets are no iPads, but they’re pretty damn good for the price, and that’s especially true today. Prime members can currently grab the 7" model for $35, which is about as cheap as it ever gets outside of Black Friday.

Just note that the base Fire 7 only includes 8GB or storage, but you can easily expand that with a discounted microSD card.

Staring at a laptop screen sitting on a desk is terrible for your neck and your posture, but a laptop stand can bring your screen up to a more ergonomic height. This one from Lamicall looks great, rotates 360 degrees on its base, and is only $20 right now with promo code LAPTOP44.

Anker PowerLine+ II 3' USB-A to USB-C Cable | $9 | Amazon | Promo code KJEXCLU2. Works on black and red
Anker PowerLine+ II 6' USB-A to USB-C Cable | $10 | Amazon | Promo code KJEXCLU23. Works on black and red
Photo: Anker

Anker’s reader-favorite PowerLine charging cables have blossomed into an entire line of different products, and it hasn’t always been clear which one was the best:

  • PowerLine - The original. Rubber-wrapped, and kevlar-reinforced.
  • PowerLine+ - The same, but wrapped in Nylon for added durability, less tangling, and a better feel.
  • PowerLine II - A more durable version of the original, and backed by a lifetime warranty, but without the benefits of nylon wrapping.

That confusion can now become a thing of the past, because Anker combined the best of all of its cables into the new PowerLine+ II, and you can save on the 3' (promo code KJEXCLU2) or 6' (KJEXCLU23) USB-A to USB-C version today. It’s incredibly durable, it’s wrapped in nylon, and it comes with a lifetime warranty if it ever did wear out.

Those codes work on both red and black, but just be sure you’re using the right code for the right length. And remember, USB-A to USB-C cables don’t support USB-C Power Delivery charging speeds like C-to-C cables, but they do allow you to charge your USB-C gadgets from any standard, ubiquitous USB charger.


LG 65" 4K HDR TV | $617 | Amazon | Backordered, also $650 at Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

It’s currently backordered by 2-5 weeks, but this 65" 4K TV with HDR10 support from LG is a steal at just $617 (compared to $800 at Best Buy). That’s especially tempting for an IPS panel, which offers the best viewing angles in the LCD space.

Want it sooner? Walmart also has it for $650, which is itself a great deal.


Got big spring cleaning plans? Well, if you’re anything like me, you’ll be stoked to see this 12-pack (!!!) of storage bins on sale. Organize all the things and neatly stack them in a closet. For $2 per bin, it’s a small price to pay to get your shit together.

Amazon makes its own luggage, and it’s surprisingly well reviewed, and less surprisingly, very affordable. Today, you can get a 20" spinner carry-on with a built-in TSA lock for just $40, which is less than a single checked bag costs on a lot of airlines.


Echo Dot + Amazon Smart Plug | $40 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Amazon’s latest Echo Dot usually costs $50, and its smart plug usually costs $25. Today though, you can get both of them for $40, and of course, they can work together to automate lights, certain kitchen appliances, and more with your voice.

Just in time for picnic season, two different sizes of AO brand coolers (12 can and 24 can) are on sale for the best prices in about a year today.

These were a finalist in our best cooler reader poll, and it’s easy to see why. All four are guaranteed to keep ice frozen for 24 hours in 120 degree weather (editor’s note: JFC what are you doing in 120 degree weather?), and they also feature a side pocket for snacks. All you have to do is pick the size you want.


TRTL Pillow Plus | Limited time 20% off with code 20TRTLPLUS
GIF: TRTL

TRTL took a stale concept, the travel pillow, and completely reinvented it with the original TRTL, a unique neck wrap with interior ribs on one side to support the weight of your head. Thousands of our readers bought the thing, and now, the company’s back with a new and improved version.

Limited Time Deal: TRTL is offering 20% off on both colors of the TRTL Pillow Plus at launch with promo code 20TRTLPLUS, bringing it down to $48.

The TRTL Pillow Plus takes the same thesis as the original model, and expands it into a full dissertation. Everything here has been upgraded: the fabric is softer and more breathable, additional padding makes it way more comfortable, and dual velcro clasps make it less likely to slip off while you’re asleep. It still works in the same way, but every aspect of the experience is better.

But the biggest change is a brand new, and completely unique, adjustable height mechanism, which allows you to adjust the height of the ribs to find an ideal fit, just by twisting a couple of knobs. That makes it great for sharing with a partner of a different height, or for adjusting on the fly if you want to switch between tilting your head to the side or letting it fall forward. No two necks are the same, and people have different upright sleeping preferences, so while TRTL probably won’t be the right pillow for everyone, the fact that it’s so adjustable means that it should please most. I’m completely comfortable calling it the best travel pillow I’ve ever used, and it’s not particularly close.

The TRTL Pillow Plus originally launched on Kickstarter last year, and raised over 1,000% of its goal. Now it’s finally launched to the masses on Amazon, so you can have your settings dialed in for any summer vacation travel plans.


A lot of backpacks these days try to cover every square inch of fabric with pockets and design flourishes. There’s a time and a place for water bottle pouches, headphone routing holes, custom-fit iPad sleeves, but sometimes you need a bag with a cleaner look, and this Herschel Supply Company bag fits the bill.

The design of this bag is about as simple as they come, and it’s surprisingly classy-looking for something so inexpensive. Amazon has the Windsor Wine/Tan Synthetic Leather-option marked down to an all-time low $36 today.


Extra 50% Off Final Sale | Bonobos | Promo code THRIFTY50

And, full disclosure, this is a pretty standard offer for this kind of bundle, but it’s rare to see a game bundled sans Mario.


Jump Force [PS4] | $50 | Amazon
Jump Force [Xbox One] | $50 | Amazon

Jump Force is far from a perfect game, but if you love anime and fighting games, it’s a pretty unique crossover from some of the most popular series around. It came out about a month ago, and now, Amazon’s marked it down to $50 on both PS4 and Xbox One.

Here’s how happy I am about it:
