Samsung U3 32GB MicroSD Card | $7 | Amazon
Samsung U3 64GB MicroSD Card | $14 | Amazon
Samsung U3 128GB MicroSD Card | $25 | Amazon
Samsung U3 256GB MicroSD Card | $60 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Samsung’s U3-rated microSD cards are some of the fastest and most popular options out there—I have the 128GB model in my own Nintendo Switch—and all four sizes are down to all-time low prices today on Amazon.

The 32GB card has been $7 for a few weeks, but the 64GB just dropped from $15 to $14, the 128GB went from $30 to $25, and the 256GB dropped from $70 to $60.

If you need extra space for your action cam, smartphone, tablet, Switch, or anything else, these are extremely fast cards, and extremely good deals.


Anker PowerLine 6' Lightning Cable | $8 | Amazon | White model only
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Anker’s original PowerLine Lightning cables were our readers’ favorites, and while they’ve been iterated on in the years since, the originals remain far nicer and stronger than Apple’s own cables. For a limited time, you can grab a 6' cable in white for just $8, or about $3 less than usual.


Refurb Samsung U28E590D 28" 4K | $250 | Woot
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you’re ready to make the leap to 4K (and if your computer can handle it), Woot’s blowing out refurbished 28" Samsung monitors for just $250, while supplies last. It’s not an IPS panel, unfortunately, but that’s still one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on a 60Hz 4K display.

Note: We’ve seen a similar display on sale for less in the past, but this model has speakers built in, and a glossy screen, rather than matte.


LG S10KY Atmos Sound Bar | $449 | eBay | Discount shown at checkout
Graphic: Shep McAllister

While 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound involves placing speakers around your room on a single plane, the concept behind Dolby Atmos audio is to give audio an element of height. If you don’t want to install speakers in your ceiling though, this sound bar is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to pull off the effect.

The LG S10KY Atmos Soundbar is a 5.1.2 system, but can be easily upgraded to 7.1.2 with a $175 rear channel expansion kit. Assuming you don’t add extra speakers though, that means you get five regular audio channels in the sound bar, a wireless subwoofer for bass, and two special “object” speakers that point upwards, and bounce sound off your ceiling, creating the effect of Atmos surround sound with minimal hardware.

The S10KY costs around $900 around the web, but while supplies last, you can grab it from eBay for $449 (discount shown at checkout). That’s one of the best prices for any non-refurbished Atmos system we’ve seen to date.


Preorder Anker Nebula Capsule II | Kickstarter
Graphic: Kickstarter

Anker’s soda can-sized Capsule portable projector was a crowdfunding hit last year, and it really did deliver on its promise. But there were a few obvious areas for improvement, and Anker tackled all of the big ones with the brand new Capsule II, now up for preorder on Kickstarter.

So what’s new?

1) Resolution: The original Capsule’s standard definition 480p has been bumped to 720p, so your videos should look a lot crisper. Easy win.

Advertisement

2) Brightness: The first Capsule’s 100 ANSI lumen bulb was fine in a dark room, but the Capsule II’s is twice as bright, which means you’ll be able to get a usable picture in more lighting conditions, and at larger screen sizes. I saw it firsthand in a fairly well-lit event space, and while not as bright as a TV screen or a full-sized projector, it was definitely bright enough to watch a movie.

3) Software: The original Capsule had a version of Android installed, but it was pretty janky, and didn’t have access to Google Play. This time around, the Capsule II ships with Android TV 9.0 onboard, with access to the vast Google Play app store, which means you won’t have to rely on your phone for casting content.

There are a few other minor differences of note, including the inclusion of USB-C Power Delivery for fast charging, an improved speaker, and autofocus. It is a bit bigger than the Capsule (which will remain on sale for the time being); Anker calls it “pint sized,” rather than soda can-sized, which was pretty cheeky of them. Whatever beverage you compare it to though, it’s still very small for a projector.

Kickstarter backers can preorder the Capsule II right now for $399. Anker’s touting a $599 MSRP for the Capsule II, and while there will surely be discounts after it comes out, Anker’s previous crowdfunding projects have, in hindsight, legitimately offered prices to backers that weren’t matched on Amazon for many months after release, if ever.

If you ever bought a Capsule I prior to this Kickstarter going live, you’re also eligible for a $100 rebate when you preorder the Capsule II. Check out the bottom of the campaign page for details.


RAVPower USB-C Power Delivery Battery Pack | $49 | RAVPower | Promo code RP35KJ058
Graphic: Shep McAllister

There are only a handful of USB battery packs out there with USB-C Power Delivery, and this is one of the lowest price we’ve ever seen on one of them.

Advertisement

$49 gets you RAVPower’s 26,800mAh battery pack, complete with a 30W USB-C port that can power a MacBook or Nintendo Switch at basically full speed, plus two regular USB ports as well. Just use promo code RP35KJ058 at checkout to save nearly $27.


15% off PicasoLabs Leather Sleeves | Promo code KINJA015 | Amazon | Plus $8 for custom engraving

Your laptop is one of the most expensive things you own, and it deserves to be treated as such. Rather than throwing it roughshod into your bag, slip it into one of PicasoLabs’ beautiful, hand-stitched leather sleeves, now back on sale just for our readers, this weekend only.

Advertisement

Jesus Diaz raved about these and interviewed the creator on Gizmodo a few years ago, and now you can pick your own from Amazon for 15% off with promo code KINJA015, plus $8 if you want it engraved.

There are several options available, and prices will vary depending on the size of your laptop. They’re all designed specifically for various MacBook models, but compare measurements, and you could probably find one to fit your Windows Ultrabook as well. No matter which one you choose, you’ll save 15% at checkout with that promo code.


While it doesn’t have the best picture quality out there, it’s tough to complain about a 65" 4K TV for $550, a 55" for $320, or a 49" model for $250. Both include HDR, though with a distinct lack of specs on the page, I’m going to assume that’s not Dolby Vision. And while they doesn’t have apps onboard—pretty typical at this price level—they do have Chromecast built in, so you can stream video easily from your phone, which is very rare at these price points.


Samson Meteor USB Microphone | $49 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

It won’t turn you into the next Sarah Koenig or David Roth, but this highly rated Samson USB microphone will at least make your voice sound good accurate when you record a podcast, stream on Twitch, or Skype your grandma. It usually costs $55-$70, but right now, you can get it for $49.


Oittm Apple Watch Portable Keychain Battery | $28 | Amazon | Promo code RHLDHVS5

The worst part of Apple Watch ownership is packing the power cord when you travel. Not only is it a lot bulkier than a Lightning or microUSB cable, it’s also probably the only one you own, meaning you have to remember to take it out of your nightstand charging dock, and put it back when you get home. So annoying!

Advertisement

That’s what makes this battery pack so genius. At only 700mAh, it’s small enough to attach to your keychain, but big enough to charge your watch 1.5 times, which should get you through a weekend with ease. And for longer getaways, you can even plug in a microUSB cable (which you probably already have in your bag) and use it as a wired travel charger too, allowing you to keep your main charging cable at home. Just use promo code RHLDHVS5 at checkout to save $12.


Panasonic Eneloop AA 4-Pack | $16 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you want to start collecting Eneloop batteries (and you should), the best place to start is the 4-pack of AAs with a charger, and you can get it for just $16 right now, a couple bucks less than usual, and within a few cents of the best price we’ve seen all year.


Roav by Anker SmartCharge Spectrum | $16 | Amazon | Promo code BGREXLF6
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Just when you thought you had car chargers pegged, Anker went out and made the smartest one you’ve ever seen.

Advertisement

Similar to the Nonda Zus, the Roav by Anker SmartCharge Spectrum connects to your phone over Bluetooth while you drive. When you turn the car off and the Bluetooth connection breaks, the Roav app will mark down your parking location on a map, so you can find your way back.

Perhaps more usefully, every time you start your car, the SmartCharge will also log the health of your car battery, so you can track its charge over time from your phone, and get a replacement ready before you get stranded in your office parking garage on a Friday evening.

Those features alone (along with Quick Charge 3.0 charging) would make this worth $16 (with promo code BGREXLF6), but it does have one last trick up its sleeve: A customizable accent light. The LED ring around the USB ports can display 16,000 different colors, and you can choose your favorite from the app to make it perfectly match (or stand out from) your car’s own dashboard lighting.


Private Internet Access Exclusive Deals

VPNs have been in the news, and whether you want to get around video geoblocks, circumvent proxy filters, or just keep prying eyes out of your browsing data while using sketchy public Wi-Fi, reader-favorite Private Internet Access has a deal to fit your needs.

Private Internet Access doesn’t do much in the way of discounting, but they offer exclusive pricing and packages just for our readers that you won’t find anywhere else. Here are your options, and what you’d pay if you bought the same plan elsewhere:

These deals are only for our readers, but we aren’t sure how long they’ll be available, so go ahead and sign up while you can.

Best Home Deals

Cold & Flu Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

The time to buy cold medicine isn’t after you get sick, when dragging yourself to the pharmacy can feel positively Sisyphean. No, you should have a collection of the basics in your bathroom cabinet ready to go for the winter, and with today’s Amazon Gold Box, you can stock up and save.

Advertisement

Inside, you’ll find discounted Nyquil, Tylenol Cold + Flu, Sudafed PE, VapoRub, and a lot more. Just note that these deals are only available today, or until sold out.


Joseph Joseph Cut & Carve Cutting Board | $18 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

Joseph Joseph’s Cut & Carve cutting board is double sided, dishwasher safe, and angled to collect juices. One side even has spikes to hold your meat in place while you carve. No, it’s not as pretty as a butcher block, but it’s a functional cutting board that you’ll find yourself using every night. Get the black one for $18 today, down from the usual $20.


Lifetime Outdoor Tables & Chairs Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Just because it’s getting colder doesn’t mean you should abandon your outdoor space. With deals on a bunch of chairs and tables, this Lifetime outdoor furniture sale will have you wanting to host picnics and barbecues all year long. Just remember that like all Gold Box deals, these prices are only available today, or until sold out.


Wall Tapestry Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Wall tapestries: not just for teen bedrooms anymore. Or maybe they are? I dunno. Either way, a bunch of them are on sale in today’s Amazon Gold Box. The vast majority of the deals are under $15, so grab a few and unleash your inner hippie.


Even if you don’t have any infants at home, baby wipes can be great for getting deodorant marks out of your shirt, polishing up your earbuds, and generally cleaning up gross things. Late last year, Amazon makes its own in-house brand of wipes, and you can get 720 of them for just $14 today.


They’d be awfully generous as Halloween trick or treat giveaways, but these Snickers bars actually have two bars in each pack, making them great for sharing (with yourself). Get a box of 24 packs (48 bars total) for $25, which should keep your sweet tooth at bay for awhile.


The Cabeau Evolution was our readers’ favorite travel pillow way back when, and today, you can save on two of its sequels.

Advertisement

The memory foam Evolution S3 is basically a sequel to the Evolution, the primary difference being a strap that attaches it to your seat’s headrest for added support. Of course, it still squishes up into a surprisingly small package when not in use, and self-reinflates once you take it out of the included bag. Normally priced at $40, you can grab one for $30 today.

If traditional neck pillows are too warm for you, go for the Evolution Cool, which sacrifices a bit of support for a wraparound neck vent. It typically sells for $60, but you can grab it for $45 today.

And finally, pair either one of them with this high-end eye mask, which includes eye cups to keep the fabric off your eye lids, an adjustable nose strip, and even a little pocket to store the included foam ear plugs. Normally $20, it’s down to $15 this weekend.


If you care about your knives even a little bit, you know that you should never put them in the dishwasher. This Joseph Joseph BladeBrush will make cleaning those knives (and any other utensil) that much easier.

Today’s price of just $8 is $2 less than usual.


Moon Light | $27 | Amazon | Promo code kinja1816
Photo: Amazon

You know those weird moon lights all over Instagram? You can get one on Amazon for $27 today with promo code kinja1816. This one’s seamless, and can glow in 16 different colors, both of which are marks of only the finest moon light vintages. I recommend pairing them with a LEGO Saturn V Apollo kit (also on sale).


Worx 13 Amp Electric Leaf Mulcher | $82 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Filling up landfills with plastic bags full of dead leaves is terrible, but this discounted mulcher can turn all that yard garbage into useful compost. Just set up the assembly, attach a bag underneath, and start dumping leaves into the bowl on top. A heavy duty string trimmer at the bottom can mulch up to 53 gallons of leaves per minute, so you can be back inside in time to watch football.


HERSHEY’S Chocolate Candy Assortment 33 oz. | $13 | Amazon | Clip the $1 coupon
Photo: Amazon

Still don’t have your Halloween candy yet? This 33 oz. bag of mini Hershey’s chocolates is under $13 after you clip the $1 coupon, with Prime shipping to have it in time for the big night. Just, uh, save us some of the Cookies ‘N’ Cremes.


Thermapen Classic | $59 | ThermoWorks
Graphic: ThermoWorks

When it comes to measuring food temperature, ThermoWorks, and specifically its Thermapen, has the market pegged. The Classic model has a rare discount down to $59 right now, the best price we’ve ever seen, so grab one for yourself, and a few more as holiday gifts.

There is a newer model of this available, which includes a rotating, backlit display, longer battery life, and better water resistance, but the actual nuts-and-bolts temperature measurement is exactly the same.


YI Mirror Dash Cam/Rear View Camera | $60 | Amazon | Promo code CJBRVBPM
Photo: Amazon

You don’t need to buy a new car to get a life-changing backup camera, you just need $60 (with promo code CJBRVBPM), and a few minutes to run the wires. This model attaches to your license plate, and runs to a special rear view mirror that attaches in front of your existing mirror.

Advertisement

Oh, about that mirror...it has a dash cam built into it! Just pop in a microSD card, and you have a backup camera, plus a dual-lens dash cam to record any accidents.


Hamilton Beach Bread Maker | $48 | Amazon
Image: Amazon

Here’s a deal that’s risen to the top of our wishlists today: This Hamilton Beach Bread Maker is a fully-baked steal on Amazon today at just $48. That’s not much dough, if you ask me, considering it retails elsewhere for $70.

Advertisement

Seriously, though, this carb-producing machine can manifest either 1.5- or 2-pound loaves, and offers three crust settings. Not to mention, the pan is dishwasher safe, and there are 12 cook settings, even one for the gluten-free set. And please, consider taking advantage of the delay timer to ensure you wake up to the smell of your own personal bakery each morning. Trust me, you knead this.


Three Bottles of Wine + Free Shipping | $15 | Firstleaf | Promo code Kinja. New members only
Photo: Zachariah Hagy (( ( ( (Unsplash)

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 today.

Advertisement

Every new Firstleaf member gets an introductory delivery with three bottles of wine for just $15, plus $5 shipping. Considering that you aren’t locked in and can cancel any time, that’s a bargain. But it gets even better for our readers, as promo code Kinja will waive the $5 shipping charge, for a limited time. That’s three bottles of wine (all of mine had MSRPs over $20) for just $5 each shipped, with no commitment.

You can read more about the service in my review, but if you choose to remain a member (I did), every box thereafter includes six bottles for $80, plus $10 shipping.

25% Off Robes For The Entire Family | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Every activity is enhanced by wearing a robe. Well, every activity in the privacy of your home, anyway. Today only, Amazon’s discounting velour robes for men, women, and kids. You can even buy a complete set for the family, including your dog.


Goodthreads and 28 Palms Menswear Sale | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Amazon is continuing a recent run of private label apparel sales, this time focusing on the Goodthreads and 28 Palms menswear brands. Goodthreads is full of everyday men’s essentials like chambray shirts, hoodies, and boxer briefs, while 28 Palms looks like stuff you’d buy from Tommy Bahama. I’m not sure the 28 Palms stuff is really in season at the moment, but there’s something for everyone amongst the Goodthreads discounts.


You Dirty Dog Grooming Set | $20 | Boarding Pass
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Nailing that grooming routine can be a challenge for anyone, but this You Dirty Dog Men’s Premium Grooming Set takes all the guesswork out of the process. The kit includes a sleek navy dopp kit, in which you’ll store your new face wash, shave cream, aftershave, and a comb, plus some very helpful operating instruction for the truly clueless. The best part: The whole shebang will only set you back $20, but the convenience of the thing is basically priceless.


Timbuk2 Medium Classic Messenger Bag | $48 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Timbuk2 makes bags of all shapes and sizes these days, but they’ll always be known for their classic messenger. Amazon’s blowing out this handsome, medium-sized model in grey for $48 today, or about $20 less than usual. I use a Timbuk2 messenger when I travel, and I absolutely love all the pockets and organization options.


Women’s Apparel Sale | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

When I first navigated to this deal on women’s apparel, I had to double check which site I was on. Amazon is taking up to 50% off a whole bunch of their own clothing brands — and a good amount of the items are actually chic.

Advertisement

The standouts of this sale include a ton of on-trend outerwear from Amazon’s label, called Haven, and a pretty solid contingent of shoes from brands The Fix and 206 Collective (I’m particularly interested in the duck boots, slides and block-heeled ankle boots, just saying). If there was ever a good time to stock up on new styles for winter, it would be now.


Buttoned Down Menswear Sale | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Amazon seemed to go from having zero private label fashion brands to having one for every conceivable style of clothing seemingly overnight, and today, it’s Buttoned Down that’s getting the spotlight.

Advertisement

As you’ve probably guessed, Buttoned Down is a menswear brand that offers button down men’s shirts, as well as pants, ties, and even socks to complete the worker drone look. None of it is exciting, but these sorts of clothes are the backbone of most men’s wardrobe, so it’s nice to have a new, affordable option.

For a limited time, a bunch of Buttoned Downs wares are on sale for about 20%-50% off, including lots of non-iron dress and business casual shirts for under $30 (or even under $20, if you can abide by discontinued patterns), and pants under $50. There are tons of fits and styles available, so surely you can find a few affordable basics that your closet currently lacks.

Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Treatment Face Mask | $22 | Amazon | Clip the $7 Coupon
Image: Amazon

There is a light at the end of the seemingly never-ending skincare tunnel, literally. The Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Mask is a breakout-clearing marvel (and one of our favorite collagen-boosters), and now, it’s available on Amazon with a $7 coupon. The mask covers your entire mug, and delivers powerful targeted blue light, effectively zapping acne-causing bacteria, and red light, which reduces inflammation. The whole treatment is gentle enough for daily use, and it’s safe for those who are prone to irritation. Plus, it sort of makes you look like Iron Man.

Historical Fiction Kindle Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

It’s Sunday, which means it’s time for another Kindle ebook sale. This week, the focus is on historical fiction, including popular titles like Finding Rebecca, From Sand and Ash, and The Paper Magician, just for starters. Deals start at $2 each, so go get downloading.


Three Month Free Audible Trial | Amazon | Prime members and new Audible members only
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Love to read but don’t have the time to sit down and actually read a book? Sign up for Amazon’s audiobook service, Audible, during this extended trial offer for Prime members.

Advertisement

For a limited time, Prime members can get three months of the service for free, rather than the typical one-month trial. That entitles you to a new book of your choice each month, plus two free Audible originals of your choice. Plus, every book you choose is yours to keep, even if you cancel. The offer is available to new subscribers only.

Note: After the three month trial ends, you’ll automatically be charged $15 per month, so be sure to cancel if you don’t like it.

Best Gaming Deals

We’ve previously shared deals (still available!) on Red Dead Redemption 2 bundles for the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro, but if you can get by without the latest and greatest hardware, Walmart’s offering up your choice of Xbox One S 1TB bundles, plus a copy of RDR2, a PowerA wired controller, and a $5 Xbox gift card for just $259. That’s less than the MSRP for the console by itself!


8Bitdo N30 Wireless NES Classic Controller | $22 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

I understand that the NES Classic is meant to feel as authentic as possible, but really, I’d be okay breaking the illusion to use a wireless controller. 8Bitdo makes a wireless controller designed just for the NES Classic, with the same nightmarishly pointy rectangular design, and it’s just $22 on Amazon today. It even includes Turbo A and B buttons, if you’re a dirty cheater.

Still need an NES Classic? They’re in stock right here.


Xbox One Controller | $40 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you could use a spare Xbox One controller, Amazon’s marked this standard black model down to $40, complete with a microUSB cable. Considering that the battery isn’t rechargeable, and most PCs have Bluetooth, I don’t think the cable is all that necessary, but it doesn’t hurt.

And if you missed it yesterday, the Sport White model is also on sale, though it’s more expensive.
