#1: Bella Pro Series Air Fryer

Air frying is one of the latest hit kitchen trends, as these handy devices can crisp up your meats and veggies without the excess grease and fat of traditional frying. We’ve featured a fair number of air fryers here at Kinja Deals over the past several months, but this might be the cheapest one yet.

Right now, Best Buy has a Bella Pro Series touchscreen air fryer for just $20, marked down from $50. Granted, it’s a small one: the 2qt capacity means it won’t handle a huge meal, but it could take the main course of a dinner for two, or maybe a crispy side. In any case, if you want to try out air frying without committing to a larger and pricier model, this $20 device is a good starter pick.

#2: Bella Pro Series Bread maker

Eating a bunch of bread is very satisfying and not at all regrettable, but I speak from experience when I say that baking that bread before devouring it is even better. I am no bread artisan or sandwich artist. A simple bread maker eases the process, and right now you can snag a Bella Pro Series 2lb bread maker for just $55 at Best Buy. That’s a $95 discount from the list price, and it has 15 different presets for various loaf types as well as time-delay and warming options.

If you’re on the hunt for a sleek new Windows laptop, Best Buy is offering the Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 for up to $600 off the list price in a range of configurations. Each has a slim build and a soft, suede-like Alcantara lining around the keyboard, plus solid speed for your everyday needs.

A Surface Laptop 3 with a 10th-gen Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB RAM, and a 256GB SSD is marked down to $1,000 right now in Sandstone. You can also get a model with an AMD Ryzen 7 chip, 16GB RAM, and a 512GB SSD in Matte Black for $1,500. And if you need a ton of storage, a configuration with a Core i7, 16GB RAM, and a massive 1TB SSD is $1,800 in Matte Black.

In all three options there, you’re saving $600 off the list price, but play with the configurations over at Best Buy: there are lesser savings on some other combinations, but they might be a better fit for what you’re looking for. The Surface Laptop 4 was announced this week, which is surely why Best Buy decided to bump up the savings on the last-gen model, but that makes it a perfect time to save a big chunk of change on these still-powerful notebooks.

If you’re an iPhone user with some cash to blow, skip the pretenders and even the lesser AirPods to go for something better. The AirPods Pro step the game up with rubber tips, active noise cancellation, better overall audio quality, and a wirelessly-chargeable case as standard.

They’re a bit expensive normally, but right now Amazon has ‘em for $52 off the list price. If you’ve been hoping for another solid price drop, this is your chance.

Movie nights with loved ones are a great way to pass the time. Netflix and Disney+ have been given a run for their money over the past year as we all stayed close to home. I’ve been looking into a projector because I’m lucky enough to have a backyard and a roommate who thought setting up a project for our weekend hangs with the same five people we see might be cool. The Vankyo V600 1080p LED Projector is 44% off and an excellent way to do just that.

This projector works with smartphones, laptops/notebooks, tablets, and Fire Sticks and connects directly with two HDMI ports. Get a screen up to 300'’ in mere seconds to make your own personal theater. With so many movie theaters still closed or going out of business, this home system is a great way to keep the spirit alive. Although this project is small, that doesn’t interfere with its output. High resolution that’s bright and brilliant is not an issue. It even supports gaming systems if you want to host your own Esports tournament. Low noise and over ten years of lamp life makes this an amazing quality to value option.

If you’ve read a few of our pieces on SideDeal before and you like what you’ve seen, they offer a $5 monthly fee to get free shipping on all of your orders, no matter how many. Otherwise, it’s a flat rate of $8.

#8: Anthem

It’s time to pay your respects to Anthem. BioWare’s live service game was supposed to be a “Destiny-killer,” but fate had other plans. The looter shooter struggled to get off the ground after launch thanks to a weak end-game. BioWare decided to salvage the game by starting a big Anthem “Next” project, but EA decided to can the game entirely. If you want to see how far the mighty have fallen, Newegg has it on sale for $8 today. Oof. Considering that this is the kind of game that’ll be lost to time once its servers close down, it’s a cheap way to play a piece of history for the price of a bodega sandwich.

Okay, so you’ve bought a new Xbox. Now what? For starters, you’re going to want to get that sucker online. Xbox Live Gold (or whatever it’s called now) lets you play multiplayer games like Destiny 2 online, gives you access to big deals, and throws an occasional free game your way. It’s a necessity for anyone looking to play Series X|S games online, so it’s the kind of service you’ll likely need sooner or later. Fortunately, you can get a full year of Xbox Live Gold at Newegg right now for $50 by using the code 93XQU34 at checkout.

Whether you’re outdoors camping, or your power is out at home, a portable generator comes in handy for recreational activities and emergency situations alike. This one from Kinja Deals reader-favorite brand is solar-powered (panels sold separately) and boasts a 300 watt-hour battery capacity.

Measuring 9.84" x 7.28" x 6.89" and weighing 10.28 pounds, its size is comparable to an industry-grade rugged laptop—compact enough to take on a trip, even in the trunk of a small sedan, but don’t count on fitting it in your pocket. Still, considering its diminutive dimensions, the Tacklife Portable Power Station packs a real punch, laying claim to powering a smartphone more than 27 times, a laptop (or refrigerator!) for 6 hours, a 45-watt CPAP for 9 hours, and a car vac for 2.5 consecutive hours.

The generator includes the required three Lithium-ion batteries needed to operate the device, and for a limited time only is discounted $97 to just $180 using the promo code J9KXB2PW. You might want to jump on this deal before it spikes back up to its full $277 list price on Monday.
