You donā€™t need to spend hundreds of dollars to enjoy the benefits of noise canceling headphones: These TaoTronics noise canceling over-ears are down to just $40 today with promo code KINJA87D.

Iā€™ve actually tried these, and while the ANC isnā€™t as impressive as what youā€™d get from Sony or Bose, it definitely works, especially against consistent noises like fans or airplane engines. Theyā€™re also extremely comfortable, and fold up for easy storage. $40 is a steal, is what Iā€™m saying.

Itā€™s only $28 today after clipping the $2 coupon, which is a no brainer if you ever listen to audio through your computerā€™s terrible built-in speakers.

Itā€™s 2018, and your lighter doesnā€™t need fuel anymore; it just has to charge over USB.

Just charge the built-in battery, and youā€™ll be good to go for up to 1,000 uses before you have to plug it in again.

Graphic: Shep McAllister

LGā€™s SK9Y sound bar was one of our readersā€™ favorites, and itā€™s easy to see why. With just one bar and a wireless subwoofer, you can enjoy get 5.1.2 channel Dolby Atmos audio, thanks to three front-firing speakers, two on the side (to bounce off the walls), and two on top (to bounce off the ceiling for the Atmos effect).

Dolby Atmos content has gotten a lot more common over the past year, and thereā€™s every indication that itā€™s the future of home theater audio. The Apple TV supports it, as does the new $50 Fire TV Stick, so itā€™s easier than ever to envelop yourself in sound.

High Sierra makes some really solid bags, and a bunch of them are on sale on Amazon today.

TRTL Travel Pillow Plus | Kickstarter
GIF: Kickstarter

Update: TRTL has added a new, cheaper award tier. ā€œThe Roamerā€ includes the pillow and a water-resistant carrying bag for Ā£35.

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 companyā€™s back with a new and improved version.

The TRTL Pillow Plus is clearly a sibling of the original TRTL, just a stronger, smarter, better looking, and more successful sibling. Everything about it has been improved - the fabric is softer and more breathable, additional padding makes the structured ribs more comfortable, and dual velcro clasps make it less likely to slip off while youā€™re asleep.

Advertisement

But the biggest change is a brand new, and completely unique, adjustable height mechanism. Seriously, Iā€™ve never seen anything even close to this in a travel pillow. Just twist the knobs on the side to increase or decrease the height of the ribs to find your ideal fit. That makes it great for sharing with a partner of a different height, or you can adjust on the fly if you want to switch between tilting your head to the side or letting it fall forward. Iā€™m completely comfortable calling it the best travel pillow Iā€™ve ever used, and itā€™s not particularly close.

The TRTL Pillow Plus just launched on Kickstarter, with early bird pricing available, as well as bundles with extra TRTL-branded travel accessories. The first batch should ship out before the end of the year, but most of you are probably looking at early 2019.


Stanley Wet/Dry Vacuum, 10 Gallon, 4 Horsepower | $48 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

You donā€™t need a wet/dry vacuum until you really, really need one, so prepare for the leaks life throws your way with this 10-gallon model, marked down to $48 today, if youā€™re willing to wait out a backorder. You might not use this for your every day house cleaning, itā€™s one of those things that everyone should have in their garage.


Bosch Laser Distance Measure | $45 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

Why measure distances with a tape measure when you can measure them with a laser? This model from Bosch is down to its best price of the year, and can measure distances up to 120 feet to within 1/16 of an inch, and it can even calculate area and volume for you, if your middle school math skills are feeling rusty.


25% off Dyson | eBay | Promo code JUSTDYSON. $75 maximum discount.
Graphic: Shep McAllister

For a limited time, Dysonā€™s eBay outlet is taking an extra 25% off any order (maximum $75 discount) with promo code JUSTDYSON, including vacuums, fans, and even hair dryers. They sell a lot of new stuff on eBay, but the best deals are on the refurbs. Either way, theyā€™re sold directly by Dyson; this isnā€™t a sketchy third party situation.

Advertisement

My favorite pick here would be the cordless Dyson V7 Animal (refurbished) for $169 after the discount is applied. If you want a corded upright, the Dyson Cinetic doesnā€™t require a filter, and is a great option at $250 brand new. Just donā€™t forget the code!

If youā€™ve had your eye on the absurd-but-somehow-worth-it Dyson hair dryer, $220 (after discount) is the best price weā€™ve ever seen.


Thermapen Mk4 (Red, Yellow, and Orange) | $79 | ThermoWorks
Graphic: ThermoWorks

Thanksgiving dinner is just around the corner, and you can be ready for that (and all of your other cooking needs) with a rare 20% discount (in autumnal red, orange, and yellow only) on our readersā€™ favorite meat thermometer: the Thermapen Mk4.

Advertisement

You guys love the Thermapen because it displays the temperature in 2 - 3 seconds, has a 3,000 hour battery life, is waterproof, and is accurate within 0.7Ā°F.

Here are just a few readers gushing over it:

Thermapen Classic (or really any of the Thermapens). Bar none the best thermometer for cooking I have ever bought ā€” accept no substitutes.

Somewhat expensive at ~$70-$120 range, but Iā€™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. Iā€™ve said it before on Kinja that the Thermapen is the best piece of kitchen equipment Iā€™ve ever bought. - the-return-of-samba00

This model doesnā€™t see significant discounts very often, so donā€™t let this deal overcook.


OxyLED is best known for its battery-powered light strips, but this discounted kit plugs into an AC outlet, and is designed specifically for under-cabinet installation.

Advertisement

The new $24 kit (with promo code RAN6OCTJ) comes with three foot-long LED light bars, plus three connecting cables, and (new in this model) a motion sensor to turn them on and off. You can either plug the bars into each other to create a longer strip, or use the cables to snake around corners and extend your setup.


Tacklife 5,000 Lumen Work Light | $37 | Amazon | Promo code TRYRJB3D

Itā€™s never a bad idea to have a work light in your tool collection, for when a job just canā€™t wait until morning. And if itā€™s waterproof? All the better.

Advertisement

This model from Tacklife is only $37 today with promo code TRYRJB3D, and puts out an astonishing 5,000 lumens thanks to an array of 100 LED bulbs. It doesnā€™t run off a battery like some other models weā€™ve posted, but itā€™s far brighter as a result.


Three Bottles of Wine + Free Shipping | $15 | Firstleaf | Promo code Kinja. New members only

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. Itā€™s a solid deal any time, but itā€™s even better for our readers today.

Every new Firstleaf member gets an introductory delivery with three bottles of wine for just $15, plus $5 shipping. Considering that you arenā€™t locked in and can cancel any time, thatā€™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. Thatā€™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.

Nordstrom Rack Makeup Sale

I canā€™t say Iā€™ve used Urban Decayā€™s Naked Ultimate Basics Palette, but Iā€™ve been informed that itā€™s an essential component to many a makeup collection. Nordstrom Rack has it marked down to just $25 right now, and I know enough to know thatā€™s a really good deal.

Yes my formal statement is that people should buy it now or regret it for the rest of their lives.

Red Dead Redemption 2Ā pulls into station in just a few weeks, and you can take in all the natural splendor by playing it on a PS4 Pro .
