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.
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.
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.
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.
Spring is here, and if you have any upcoming home improvement project, eBay’s DeWALT sale may have a tool deal for you.
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.
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.
Automate your home without the internet-connected security concerns with these mini indoor outlet timers. This two-outlet, two-pack can be set to turn on-and-off lamps, small appliances, Christmas trees, and other electrical devices.
Use promo code TIGMRQ73 to save $3 off the regular price.
There’s never been a better time to upgrade that old pair of Chucks. Converse is taking 30% off sale items with the promo code SALE30, so get brand new pair of classic sneakers and then proceed to wear them out until they’re literally falling apart at the seams, as one does. This sale will only last through Monday, so be sure to tie up the deal before it walks out for good.
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.
David Archy sells some of the most popular underwear and clothing basics on Amazon, and a number of them are on sale today. Starting this weekend, you can save 20% underwear and undershirt packs with the promo codes MEN20OFF and 20OFFMEN respectively.
I own a few of those “contour pouch” boxer briefs and I really like ‘em. I’m betting you would too.
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.
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.

Bose’s wireless QuietComfort 35 noise-cancelling over-ears are basically a mute button for the rest of the world, and you can get them for $258 at Rakuten today, down from the usual $329-$349. Is that a lot of money? Yes. Is it worth it? <Waves frantically in your eye line to get your attention since you can’t hear us> Yes.
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.
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’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.
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.
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.
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.
If you need any type of activewear or sneakers in the next coming weeks now that it’s finally nice out, Reebok is giving you extra 50% off everything from their outlet shop, with the code EXTRA50. From sneakers, to running shorts, to gym bags, this sale has it all.
You’ll need to sign up for a Reebok Unlocked membership to get free shipping. But, you’ll just need to use the code at checkout for the discount.
Use the promo code MP43 to drop this base Nintendo Switch down to $255. This is about $10 off the lowest price we’ve seen on this console, so it’s a great deal if you want to “build” your own discounted bundle.
If you want to take your streaming game to the next level, Elgato’s time-saving and workflow-automating Stream Deck Mini is on sale for $70 right now, down from its usual $100.
Its six keys are actually tiny, customizable LCD screens, and you can assign them to different actions and workflows on YouTube, Twitch, and other popular streaming platforms. It’s basically a very cool, very elegant alternative to custom keybindings and keyboard shortcuts, and it would make a great gift.
If you home has any ceiling mounts for lights or fans, you can install this gorgeous Philips Hue flushmount light for $163 today, down from the usual $200, and within $3 of an all-time low.
Unfortunately, it can’t display colors, but it can shift through various temperatures of white. For example, daylight when you want to feel energized, and warmer in the evenings when you’re trying to wind down for the day.
Join the club — you know, Sam’s Club— because right now, it’s much cheaper than usual to sign up. Via Groupon, you’ll pay $35 for a one year membership; that’s 56% off the regular price. And to top it off, you’ll also receive a $10 eGift Card, not to mention a $15 eGiftCard for first purchase on SamsClub.com over $15, and $10 off basket worth $10 or more of fresh produce. <Does math in head> That’s $35 worth of free stuff for $35, plus the membership!
Or, for $45, you’ll get the membership, a $20 gift card, a $15 online gift card, $20 off a fruit basket, and a free $5 rotisserie chicken. That’s $60 of free stuff for spending $45, not including the membership.
That’s quite a welcome, Sam, so go snag this deal before it sells out.
We all love to hate Crocs, but guess what! Those lightweight, hole-y, rubber-y slides are cool now, thanks to the always groundbreaking runway scene and one Post Malone. And you too can be hip to the trend thanks to Crocs’ 30% off sitewide sale, plus an extra 10% off with promo code EXTRA10. Dozens of styles are available, and in case you haven’t noticed, Crocs makes other shoes that barely even look like Crocs. So go ahead and stock up on Crocs, because fashun.
Wearing makeup is all fun and games until it’s time to take it off. Stop scrubbing your skin raw with a washcloth or using endless, expensive, wasteful cotton pads and pre-soaked wipes, and get yourself a MakeUp Eraser for $16 in one of four on-sale colors (including a unicorn print).
MakeUp Eraser promises to remove every trace of cosmetics from your face using only warm water. The secret is a proprietary polyester blend that’s great at getting all the gunk off your face. Simply hang it up to dry when you’re all cleaned off, and wash as needed. Your days of pouring money down the drain on other makeup removers are over.
Run over to Nordstrom Rack, where an ace of a deal is going on now: ASICS sneakers for both men and women are marked way down, with pairs starting at as little as $38. With a wide range of styles and colors up for grabs, they’re all the motivation you need to keep those fitness goals up and running through spring. But be sure to lace up this discount quickly; these shoes will likely sell out soon, and the deal only runs through the next three days.
A blowout sale is upon us. Lucky Brand wants to make sure you get lucky with some deeply discounted apparel with up to 75% off Lucky’s already marked-down sale sections for men and women. Plus, the brand is offering $25 off purchases of $100 or more, $50 off purchases of $150 or more, and $60 off purchases of $200 or more. So don’t waste another second; load up on tees, tops, denim, shoes, and even some parkas like it’s your lucky day.
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 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.
A new season is here, so get a new wardrobe to match. Bonobos has a sale section stocked with spring essentials, and you can take all of them home for an extra 50% off using promo code THRIFTY50. Make space in your closet for essentials like chinos, jeans, button-downs, and suits, and get ready to look on the outside like the put together guy you are on the inside. Just be aware: The items included in this promotion are final sale, so be sure about your purchase before you check out.
Want your new Nintendo Switch with a side of basketball? Good news, Walmart is offering Nintendo Switch console, in either grey or neon, and a copy of NBA2K19 for just $299. This is about $30 its normal price.
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 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:
Have you played Tacoma? Do you want to? It doesn’t matter, you should get it for free anyway. All you have to do is sign up for Humble’s newsletter, and it’s yours, forever. You can even unsubscribe to the newsletter! It’s true! It’s the law!
Update: Humble just added Minit to this month’s early unlock games. It’s like Zelda, but you die every 60 seconds. It’s great!
It’s March, which means a new batch of awesome Humble Monthly games just dropped. This month’s early access games include Northguard, Mutant Year Zero: Road to Ede and Absolver: Downfall. And as always, more games will unlock every Friday until the end of the month.
If you’re not familiar, Humble Monthly is a $12 per month subscription service and releases a cache of PC games each month, plus 10% off in the Humble Store, and extra benefits on certain Humble Bundles. The best part? Even if you cancel your membership, every game you add to your Steam library is yours to keep.
Xbox One controllers don’t drop to $38 very often, so if you think you might want one, right now is the best time to buy. These are the newest models with built-in Bluetooth, so they’ll also work with your PC without an adapter.
I’m not sure if you’re aware, but it’s cold as hell outside, and I can’t think of a better time for a weighted blanket. In addition to keeping you warm, a weighted blanket can work wonders for your anxiety, and several different models are on sale today for the first time since the holiday shopping season, including a beefy 20 pounder for just $70, the best price we’ve ever seen for a blanket that heavy. Just be sure to note the promo codes above or below.
Personally, I want my weighted blankets to be capable of breaking ribs, but the general recommendation is 10% of your body weight. Not to stress you out, but we wouldn’t expect this deal to last for long.
If you want to invest in your cooking, a good meat thermometer isn’t far behind a good knife in the hierarchy of important gear. And today, you can score a rare discount on the best thermometer out there, if you don’t mind getting an open-box model.
Our readers love the Thermapen because it displays the temperature in 2 - 3 seconds, has a 3,000 hour battery, is waterproof, and is accurate to within 0.7°F.
Here are just a few readers gushing over the Classic model:
Thermapen Classic (or really any of the Thermapens). Bar none the best thermometer for cooking I have ever bought — accept no substitutes.
Somewhat expensive at ~$70-$120 range, but I’ve been using mine for years and years, and it still gives me an accurate reading in less than three seconds. Well, well worth the price. Especially excellent for the grill. - theburners
Without a doubt. No other thermometer comes close. I’ve said it before on Kinja that the Thermapen is the best piece of kitchen equipment I’ve ever bought. - the-return-of-samba00
This model doesn’t see significant discounts very often, and when it does, it’s usually only on one or two colors, whereas today you can pick from several.
Elevation Lab’s Anchor has long been one of our favorite headphone storage solutions, and the newer Anchor Pro has proven to be a worthwhile upgrade. Now, you can save 30% on both with promo code KINJAANCHORS.
The concept for both the Anchor and the Anchor Pro are the same—they’re both hooks that hang under your desk to hold your headphones—but every aspect was improved for the Pro. The hook is larger, to accommodate big over-ear headphones and gaming headsets, it includes a built-in Velcro cable tie to keep your cords under control, and optional screws afford you added security, if the included 3M adhesive isn’t sufficient. It’s only a few bucks more than the original, so it’s the one I would buy.
That said, if you do want the original, it’s also on sale for $8 with promo code KINJAANCHORS.
If you didn’t buy enough years for $40 back on Black Friday, today’s $45 deal for PlayStation Plus is about the best you can expect outside of the holiday shopping season. If you own a PlayStation 4, or are planning to buy one soon, the only question is how many you should buy, not whether you should buy it.
Audio Technica’s legendary M50x headphones finally got built-in Bluetooth late last year, and today at Massdrop, you can grab the new version for $130. That’s about $70 less than usual, and easily the best price we’ve ever seen.
The M50 line is highly regarded for its comfort, even frequency response, and amazing overall sound quality for the price, and now you can enjoy the same benefits with no
strings wires attached.
Here’s your no-brainer deal of the day. If you visit this page and enter your email, Grove Collaborative will give you $30 worth of Grove and Mrs. Meyer’s products for free when you spend $20 on anything else on the site. I was also given a free glass spray bottle and concentrated cleaner, for seemingly no reason at all.
After you enter your email, you’ll automatically be taken to a cart with $20+ of items already added, but you can delete those and replace them with anything you’d like. Grove’s well stocked with laundry supplies, cleaning gear, pet products, personal care, and even baby items...you know, stuff that you have to buy anyway. So you might as well get a bunch of Mrs. Meyer’s stuff for free.
Note: The offer will also give you 60 days of Grove’s VIP free shipping membership for free, which will auto-renew at a rate of $20 per year, but you can cancel the auto-renew immediately after ordering.
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 right now.
Every new Firstleaf member gets an introductory delivery with six bottles of wine for just $40 with free shipping, and every box thereafter includes six bottles for $80, plus $10 shipping. But if you use this link and promo code Kinja when you sign up, 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. At the very least, you should get the trial box for less than $7 per bottle. I mean, why wouldn’t you?
If you’re having trouble sleeping, suffering from anxiety, or having trouble sleeping because you’re suffering from anxiety, Sunday Scaries CBD gummies could help. Jolie Kerr shared her thoughts on them for The Inventory, and now, our readers can save 15% for the always-stressful holiday season with promo code kinja15.
That applies to the regular gummies, the vegan versions, and the pure CBD tincture, with extra savings available if you buy in bulk, so your wallet can rest as easy as you will.
