Update: Now back up to $300, sorry!
Sony’s MDR line of Bluetooth headphones sold like gangbusters during Black Friday, but if you were holding out for noise cancelling models, Amazon’s rewarding your patience today with a $170 discount on the top-of the line MDR1000x.
These headphones have all the features you’d expect in a good pair of Bluetooth headphones these days: NFC pairing, 20+ hour battery life, and even LDAC Hi-Res audio compatibility. But the secret sauce here is noise cancellation, including a special mode that lets ambient voices through either at all times, or just when you cup a hand over the right earcup. $230's still a solid chunk of change, but it’s the best discount we’ve ever seen on them by a whopping $70.
If you’re still wrestling with a terrible inkjet printer at home, do yourself a solid and pick up the reliable Brother HL-2380DW monochrome laser printer today for just $100 today.
While it doesn’t print in color, it more than makes up for that with the ability to spit out 32 pages per minute, duplex printing, and inexpensive toner cartridges that can last for years without being replaced. We’ve posted a lot of Brother deals in the past, and we’ve heard nothing but good things from readers about them. Plus, this particular model has a sterling 4.4 star review average on Amazon, a built-in scanner, and AirPrint and Google Cloud Print support, so it should serve you well for years.
Apple’s previous generation Bluetooth keyboard is still great after all these years, and you can score a refurb from Amazon for $35 today.
The solar panel on this 15,000mAh battery pack will only give it a trickle charge, but it’d still be good to have for camping trips or extended power outages, if only for peace of mind.
Inexpensive truly wireless headphones are finally starting to become a thing, and Smartomi’s Q5s are just $21 today on Amazon with code 3TOJDKAW, one of the best prices we’ve seen on any true wireless earbuds worth considering. Unlike AirPods, they’ll only last about 3 hours on a charge, and they don’t come with a wireless recharging case, but hey, not having a wire around your neck is worth something.
VPNs are in the news these days, and with good reason. So if you’re curious to sign up and start protecting your browsing history and personal data (or, you know, getting around websites’ geoblocks), NordVPN charges less per month than a typical trip to Starbucks.
NordVPN has long been one of the most popular and reliable VPN providers out there, and if you sign up for a one-year membership, promo code VIP70 will drop your annual price from $69 to $48. If you’re sure you want to commit, use this link instead to get a special two year plan for $79 with code 2YSpecial2017. Lifehacker has recommended Nord in some previous guides, but if you have any firsthand experience with the service, sound off in the comments!

Update: Deal is over.
Trust me when I say that once you own one of these, you’ll hardly ever use your “real” oven anymore. It preheats significantly faster, it’s much easier to program, and it’s big enough to cook all but the biggest meals. They don’t go on sale often though, and the Air model has never been this cheap before, so don’t miss out.
You’re not a true internet user until you’ve purchased a mattress online, and today only, Amazon’s marking this eLuxurySupply 10” dual foam mattress down to just $374-$607, with queens checking in at $517.
That’s significantly less than the equivalent Casper or Leesa, and while it’s more expensive than some other mattresses-in-a-box from Amazon, this is one of the few that offers a trial period with free returns - 120 nights of risk free sleeping. It carries a 4.4 star rating from nearly 300 customers though, so chances are you’ll enjoy it.
Just remember that this deal is only available today, so don’t sleep on it.
You need toilet paper anyway, so you might as well stock up while it’s cheap. Get 48 rolls of Scott tube-free toilet paper for just $12 (or $11 if you use Subscribe & Save) after clipping the 20% coupon on this page. I’m not sure toilet paper tubes were high up on the list of ecologically damaging waste, but I suppose it doesn’t do any harm to get rid of them.
We’ve all had to throw away leftovers or cuts of meat and cheese that spent a little too much time in the fridge or freezer, but vacuum sealing your foods can keep them safe from freezer burn pretty much indefinitely, and dramatically extend their shelf life everywhere else.
It sounds like an expensive proposition, but today, Amazon’s selling this well-reviewed FoodSaver 4840 Starter Kit for $126, within a few bucks of an all-time low. There are cheaper FoodSaver models out there, but the 4840 justifies its cost with a retractable vacuum sealing hose, allowing it to vacuum seal specially designed zipper bags, in addition to the usual heat-seal bags.
Of course you can use this to store meats in the freezer for a long time, but it can also keep cheese from molding, lettuce from wilting, or cookies from going stale, just to name a few examples. Think about how much food you throw away, and you’ll get a sense of just how quickly this purchase could pay for itself.
Note: The video above isn’t the exact same model, but the features presented are identical to the 4840.
Nobody relishes the idea of sleeping on an air mattress, but they might not mind this discounted Insta-Bed.
$107 is more than you’d spend on most other air mattresses (though it’s an all-time low for this one), but this one includes a pillow top cover for extra softness, and most importantly, a built-in pump that silently trickles more air into the mattress overnight. Just set your desired firmness, and the mattress will automatically maintain it as long as it’s plugged in. I slept on one of these for a few days after a recent move, and loved it as much as anyone can love sleeping on an air mattress.
AmazonBasics makes some of your favorite clothes hangers, and you can get 50 of them for $18 today, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen.
Yi, manufacturer of your favorite affordable action cam, also makes a home IP security camera, and you can pick it up for just $29 today with promo code YP5S6XQ4, the best deal we’ve ever seen.
The Yi Home Camera includes all the basic features you’d expect, including two-way audio, automatic activity alerts to your phone, and remote monitoring. And unlike other companies that rely on cloud storage and monthly fees, the Yi stores your files on an onboard microSD card, no membership required.
This $8 gadget form Nordic Ware lets you hard boil eggs in just 10 minutes in the microwave. Plus, it looks like an egg, which counts for something.
Our readers have bought thousands upon thousands of Rubbermaid Easy Find Lid food storage sets over the years, but today’s a great day to upgrade to the Premier version.
Compared to the originals, these feature a stronger plastic base which is better at resisting stains and smells, and lids that snap to the bottom of their containers, so they never get separated. $21 is within a few cents of the best price Amazon’s ever listed on the 20-piece set (which includes 10 containers and 10 lids, not 20 containers), so stock up.

How It Works
Measure and customize from home...
Follow the directions on Indochino’s site to submit your measurements and customize your shirts. Once the shirts arrive, if anything doesn’t fit quite right, Indochino will provide directions for your local tailor, along with a $75 credit to cover their work. If for whatever reason your tailor cannot resolve the issues, Indochino will remake your shirts. Shipping and return shipping are free.
You do not have to go through the measurement and customization process to lock in this discount. You can checkout now and submit later. This option also makes it easy to gift a suit.
If you live near a showroom...
Purchase your shirts online with our discount and take your receipt/account info into an Indochino showroom. They’ll do your measurements, walk you through your customization options, and have your shirts delivered to the showroom.

Amazon’s back with another Sunday Kindle ebook sale, with over two dozen titles marked down to just a few bucks each. There doesn’t seem to be much of an overarching theme to the books—Amazon calls them book club reads—but chances are you can find something you’ll enjoy.
Top Gaming Deals
Rise of the Tomb Raider is one of the best games you can play on your Xbox One, and at $20 for a digital download, it’s never been cheaper.
Need an extra controller for your new Xbox One? eBay’s got one for just $36, which is lower than it was on Black Friday.
The Xbox One S gamepad improves on the original with a textured grip, double the range, and most importantly, Bluetooth, meaning you can connect it to your PC without an adapter.
I’ll never understand how, in 2017, Microsoft still ships Xbox One controllers without built-in rechargeable batteries, but at least there’s an easy fix. Get two battery packs and a charging cradle for $17 today with promo code YS8SDUD2. You don’t have to use the cradle if you don’t want to; any microUSB cable will do the job.
