Amazon’s Fire HD 6 is a penny-pinching tablet buyer’s dream, and Amazon’s offering it for just $70 today, or $30 less than usual. While Amazon does offer a cheaper 7" Fire tablet for $50, the Fire HD has a sharper screen, a faster processor, and slightly better battery life.


While I probably wouldn’t use this keyboard or mouse as my daily driver, this is a great deal if you want a backup set, or need something to control a home theater PC from across the room. Logitech claims that the mouse can run for five months on a set of batteries, and the keyboard can last up to 15, both of which put my respective Apple peripherals to shame.


In case you missed out a couple weeks ago, a pair of Anker’s ultra-popular PowerCore USB battery packs are still on sale for just a hair over $20. The PowerCore 10000 includes Quick Charge 3.0 for only $22, which is a fantastic deal, but the PowerCore 13000 has more capacity, and an extra port for only $21.


$12 for a Qi charging pad with an included 2A wall charger is a great deal from any manufacturer, let alone Samsung.


If you’re in the market for a travel-friendly laptop, you won’t find a better bargain than $275 for an 11.6" Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga with a 128GB SSD. It might not be powerful enough to be your primary computer, but it’d be a great portable option.


In case you aren’t sick of cordless lawn tool deals yet, Amazon’s offering a Gold Box deal on a variety of powerful 40V tools from GreenWorks. Just note that like all Gold Box deals, these prices are only available today, or until sold out.


It’s not the most powerful blender out there, but at $30, the Hamilton Beach Wave Crusher offers a ton of value.


If you squint your eyes, this $8 meat thermometer looks an awful lot like a Thermapen, and while it’s not nearly as fast at 4-5 seconds, it only costs a fraction of the price, and reviewers seem to like it.


IZZE Variety Pack, $13 after 15% coupon

If you’re hooked on IZZE soda sparkling juice, you can save an extra 15% on a 24-can variety pack today, courtesy of Amazon. Just be sure to clip the coupon, and you’ll see the discount at checkout.


Magicfly TENS Massager, $18 with code TEVDNVZT

Full disclosure, I don’t know if TENS (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) massagers actually do anything useful. I use one occasionally after exercising, and I think it helps reduce muscle pain. At the very least, it feels cool.

In any event, this is not a medical endorsement, simply a deal post, and this is about as cheap as you’ll ever see one of these things.


You never want to be in a situation where you need a solar and hand crank-powered weather radio with a flashlight and USB port for charging your phone, but when you can choose from a pair of deals, you probably should buy one just in case.

Functionally, these seem to be identical. The Eton has an 800mAh battery vs. 600 on the Red Cross, but otherwise, I’d just pick the one you think looks nicer.


By now, you should know that Anker PowerLine Lightning cables are incredibly popular, but did you know there’s another tier of cables above them? Anker’s PowerLine+ line increases the bend lifespan from 5,000 to 6,000 and adds a nylon braided exterior. Want to see one for yourself? The 10' model is available in red for $14 today, or about three bucks less than usual.


Let’s not beat around the bush: This tumbler is supposed to look and behave like a Yeti Rambler. I don’t know if it’s quite as good, but its limited reviews are almost universally positive, so it may be worth a try at $16.


If you can’t start your day without a morning cup of coffee, but you’re still using an electric drip coffee maker, or even (gasp) a Keurig, you might want to try out a flavor-extracting french press. This inexpensive Chef’s Star model looks nearly identical to the excellent Bodum Chambord, but is significantly cheaper at $17, complete with a pair of matching cups.

If you’re not convinced, know that french press took the #1 spot in Lifehacker’s coffee-making Hive Five, and many coffee aficionados swear by it. And with no disposable filters or pods to buy, this machine could pay for itself over time.


If you want a Big Green Egg charcoal grill, but don’t want to cash in your 401(k) to buy one, this Char-Griller alternative is down to an all-time low $285 today, and a great investment for meat lovers everywhere.

The Char-Griller Akorn Kamado Kooker features a 306 square inch cast iron cooking surface (which is most similar to the $829 large Big Green Egg), and traps heat inside a heavily-insulated stainless steel body. Our deal researcher, Corey, owns a BGE, and I asked him about it on Slack:

And I use my BGE for about 70% of meat meals.

Probably 90% during the warm months.

Best Father’s Day gift I’ll ever get.

Lana jokes that she’s the one who benefits most because I cook on it all the time.

Worth the price just for its ability to cook pizza, IMO.

But pork chops, lions, tenderloin are beyond incredible on it.

Obviously, this isn’t the “real thing,” but the consensus among Amazon reviewers is that it’s at least nearly as good, which sounds like a decent compromise considering it’s only about 1/3 of the price, and comes with a stable cart and folding shelves, both of which you’d need to buy separately with the Egg.


Heading out for a hike, and don’t want to carry a water bottle? This $25 hydration backpack includes a 70 ounce water bladder, which should keep you going all day.


Two Bosch Insight Wiper Blades, $22. Add two to cart (must be shipped by Amazon) to see the discount.

Summer isn’t kind to your wiper blades, so if you’ve been struggling to see the road through streaks on your windshield, Amazon’s offering up a pair of Bosch Insight Blades for just $22 right now. Just pick the two you need, add them to your cart, and the discount should appear automatically. The deal even allows you to mix and match sizes, so you can almost certainly find a combination that will work for your car.

Note: The discount will only work on blades shipped and sold by Amazon directly. No third party sellers.


3D printing is one of the more constructive hobbies you can learn, and with today’s deal, it’s also shockingly affordable.

Amazon is currently selling Monoprice’s Maker Select entry-level 3D printer for $273, or $77 less than Monoprice itself. Its 8"x8"x7" build area is plenty large for this price, it includes some PLA filament to get you started, and all you have to do to set it up is tighten six screws. If you have any experience with this, be sure to sound off in the comments!


FREE Prime Pantry shipping with purchase of five eligible items and promo code PANTRYJUL

Amazon’s free Prime Pantry shipping promotion seems to be a permanent fixture at this point, but each month brings a new slate of eligible items, and July’s have just been revealed.

As always, just add five of the items on this page to your Prime Pantry box, enter code PANTRYJUL at checkout, and the $6 shipping charge will be waived. Plus, if you happen to have a free Pantry shipping credit from accepting no rush shipping on a previous Amazon order, it should stack, granting you an additional $6 discount.

There are literally hundreds of products available for the promotion, so you should have no trouble finding five that you need.


Update: There’s now free shipping on everything.

Going to Uniqlo is like going to the grocery store when you’re hungry; you always end up getting more than you need. So with summer staples like chino shorts for under $20, graphic tees for $10, and polos to dress it up on occasion for $15, you bet you’ll put multiple things in our cart that you thought you didn’t want, but definitely needed.
