BEST TECH DEALS

Brother makes the only printer that doesn’t absolutely suck, so you can assume they make a good scanner too. This ADS1000W is discounted by about $25 today, bringing it down to the best price we’ve seen since February.

It will scan both sides the paper in both color and black & white with one pass. It connects to your devices wirelessly and folds up when you’re not using it. So if you’re in the market, today’s a good day to grab this.


Anker PowerDrive 2 | $8 | Amazon

Anker’s PowerDrive 2 can output 12W on both ports simultaneously, and its USB ports even light up so you can find them in the dark. Even if you have a car charger you’re happy with already, I like keeping a spare in my luggage for rental cars.


RAVPower 10W Qi Charging Pad | $8 | Amazon | Use code KINJAR083

If you still don’t have enough Qi pads in your life, one of the best deals we’ve ever seen on any pad from a well-known brand like RAVPower is happening right now. This $8 Qi pad will only charge iPhones at 5W, but compatible Android phones will be able to take advantage of the 10W power.


AUKEY Wi-Fi Smart Plug (2 Pack) | $22 | Amazon | Promo code AUKEYPA1

Automate all the things with this discounted 2-pack of Aukey smart plugs. Not only do these respond to an app-scheduled response, but they also work with Alexa and Google Home. At just $22 for a pack of two (with the code AUKEYPA1), it’s worth getting a couple packs for all over your home.


HP 256GB SSD | $55 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

An SSD is the best upgrade you can buy for your computer, but it doesn’t have to be expensive. This 256GB model from HP is down to just $55 right now on Walmart, so go ahead and make the switch. You could also throw it (or your discarded hard drive) into a cheap enclosure to use it as external storage.


Anker SoundSync Bluetooth Transmitter/Receiver | $33 | Amazon | Promo code ANKER222
Graphic: Shep McAllister

External Bluetooth transmitters and receivers with 3.5mm jacks have been around for years, but this model from Anker raises the bar with support for optical (SPDIF) audio.

The little box can both receive and transmit Bluetooth signals, and includes SPDIF in and out ports to connect it to your TV or high-end audio equipment. Plus, it can even pair to two pairs of headphones simultaneously when transmitting, which would allow two people to, say, listen to the same TV over headphones to avoid waking up someone in the next room. It even includes an optical audio cable, which doesn’t normally come cheap. Just be sure to use promo code ANKER222 at checkout to get it for $33.


MP Select Mini 3D Printer V2 | $175 | Monoprice | Promo code MINI25
Maker Ultimate 3D Printer | $480 | Monoprice | Promo code ULT220
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you have any inkling that you might be interested in 3D printing, these Monoprice deal is as good as it gets. Score their v2 entry-level mini printer for just $175 with promo code MINI25, while they last. Or, if you want a larger build area and much finer resolution (.02mm vs. .1mm), the Ultimate model is $220 off as well with promo code ULT220, bringing it down to $480.

Our deal researcher Corey is our resident 3D printing expert, and he had this to say about a similar Monoprice printer.

I own that. I think it is the best starter 3D printer available. Prints ABS, PLA, Copoly, and several other filaments. Expect to tweak it to get the results you want, but also expect more capabilities than its price warrants.


iClever USB 3.0 CD/DVD-RW Drive | $17 | Amazon | Promo code NNNNCCCC

Most laptops don’t have CD drives anymore, which is mostly fine, except for that one time that inevitably pops up every year or two where you really wish you had one. Now, you can for just $17 with promo code NNNNCCCC, no extra power cable required.


Aukey USB-C SD Card and USB Dongle | $13 | Amazon | Promo code UFBU9LVA

If that won’t cut it, the 256GB model is also on sale for $110. That’s not an all-time low, but it’s a pretty solid deal for that card.


iPad (2017) 32GB | $249 | Walmart
iPad (2017) 128GB | $329 | Walmart

Apple’s latest entry-level iPad is a little faster than the previous model, and supports the Apple Pencil. But if you don’t really care about such things, you can get a great deal on the old one.

Walmart has the 32GB fifth-gen tablet marked down to $249 ($80 less than the equivalent 6th gen), as well as the 128GB model for $329 ($100 less). This is the iPad I currently own, and yes, it can run Civilization VI.

The conventional wisdom for traveling to Vietnam is that it’s expensive to get there, but cheap once you arrive. But what if it was cheap to fly there too?

Note: If the link isn’t working, try pausing your ad blocker.

Gate 1 Travel is currently offering six-night tours of the country, including roundtrip and inter-city airfare, starting at just $999 per person with promo code TZWEV. That includes your hotels, breakfasts, and even a tour guide too.

20-Pack Oh My Clean Thick Melamine Sponges | $8 | Amazon | Clip the $1 coupon
Photo: Amazon

You know those “Magic Erasers” that can wipe stains off seemingly any surface? They’re really just melamine sponges with a marketing budget, and you can get 20 off-brand equivalents for just $8 on Amazon (after clipping the $1 coupon), an all-time low. I used these after moving into a new apartment last year, and they made quick work of all of the scuffs I made on the walls.

Advertisement

We’ve seen packs with more sponges for about the same price, but they usually ship from China, whereas these have Prime shipping, and are even eligible for Subscribe & Save. They’re also twice as thick as most of the inexpensive competitors on Amazon, so they should last longer and be easier to use.


Zappos Rewards Sale | Zappos
Graphic: Jillian Lucas

Zappos is basically a one-stop shoe destination already, but right now, they’re having a very rare sale, marking down thousands of shoe, boots, and apparel for the summer season. Heels, boots, sneakers, swimsuits, workout gear, all kinds of styles from brands like Clarks, Adidas, Nike, SOREL, Converse, Dr. Martens, and more. Stock up for the season while you can, because they only run sales this big once or twice per year.

Plus, if you join their free rewards program, you’ll get free two day shipping on all orders through 2018. You can’t beat that.

Everything they sell on Amazon is eligible, so be sure to look beyond the main page. The Men’s and Women’s sections have a lot more styles, and some frames, like the new Madelaine Collection (featuring Riverdale’s Madelaine Petsche) are only available from the New Arrivals dropdown menu. The unisex Commando aviators are Privé’s most popular though, so feel free to start with those.

Privé now sells a couple of blue light-blocking computer glasses as well that you could grab with this sale. They aren’t sunglasses, and they obviously aren’t prescription, but they could be just what you need if suffer from eyestrain at work.

DIRECTV Now | $10 per Month For Three Months | Promo code YESNOW3. Fox not available in all markets
Sling TV World Cup Package | $10 | French and Portuguese Commentary
Graphic: DIRECTV Now

If you want to stream all of the FIFA World Cup games at home (or at your desk) without a real cable subscription, DirecTV Now looks to be your cheapest option at the moment, if they include Fox in your area.

Advertisement

The service’s base package includes Fox Sports 1 and Fox, which together will broadcast every World Cup match, though Fox is only available in certain markets (use this tool to find out if you’re covered). It normally costs $35 per month, but you can get your first three months for just $10 each with promo code YESNOW3. That’ll auto-renew at the regular price after the promotional period, but you can cancel any time, including after your first month, meaning you’d only pay $10 out of pocket for full World Cup access.

If Fox isn’t available in your area, Sling TV has another $10 option with every match that doesn’t rely on Fox, though commentary will be in French and Portuguese. Pretty much every country has more exciting soccer announcers than ours, even if you don’t understand the language, so maybe this is a plus! But if you’re primarily watching on mute at your desk at work, it doesn’t really matter.


BEST GAMING DEALS

No Man’s Sky had a shaky launch, but a series of updates and an upcoming multiplayer mode mean that now’s a great chance to try it out. Grab a copy on PS4 for just $15 from Walmart, while it lasts.

But to celebrate E3, you can get a six month membership card for just $30, which grants you access to new releases like State of Decay 2 and Sea of Thieves, as well as classics like KOTOR and all of the Gear of War games. The best part of this deal? It’ll also work if you’re an existing member.


Sony’s PS4 Pro E3 discounts went live a few days ago, and Microsoft has finally followed suit with $50 discounts on a variety of consoles, including the first “official” discount ever on the Xbox One X (though we have seen other savings opportunities on it before). But at least with these deals, you could have the console in your possession as soon as today, if you pick up in store.
