#1: THErmapen IR

Thermapen IR Probe and Infrared Thermometer | $118 | ThermoWorks

With the Thermapen IR, ThermoWorks took the industry standard Thermapen probe thermometer, and added an accurate IR thermometer, combining two useful kitchen tools into one.

So now, with a single gadget, you can check to make sure your pan is ready for searing with the laser thermometer, and make sure your meat is fully cooked with the probe. Here’s how it works:

But probe thermometers aren’t really designed to tell you how hot a cooking surface is, or say, detect air conditioning leaks. For those tasks, you want a non-contact infrared thermometer. At the bottom of the Thermapen IR, you’ll find a lens. Just point it at any surface from about five inches away, hit a button, and you’ll get an instant temperature reading on the screen. Unlike most temperature guns, this one doesn’t project a visible laser, which is no fun from a dicking-around-and-measuring-the-temperature-of-your-dog perspective, but not really a huge deal if you’re using it for cooking.

The Thermapen IR has never been discounted outside of Thermoworks’ occasional sitewide sales, but today only, you can get it for $118, a 15% discount.

#2: ANker flashlight

Anker LC40 Rechargeable Flashlight | $17 | Amazon | Promo code ANKERL40
Anker LC30 Flashlight | $8 | Amazon | Promo code ANKERL30

The flashlight on your phone is fine for stumbling to the bathroom in the middle of the night, but for any situation where you want to see more than a few feet in front of you, it’s worth investing in a dedicated torch.


Anker’s upgraded LC40 now features a rechargeable battery (can you believe Anker ever sold one that didn’t?) that can run for up to 50 hours on low power mode, or for six with the light’s brightness maxed out at 400 lumens Of course, it recharges over USB (even from a USB battery pack, natch), and its IP65 rating means it can stand up to the elements. It normally costs $20, but they’re putting it in the spotlight this week with a discount to $17.

If you don’t need a rechargeable battery, the 300 lumen LC30 runs off AAA batteries, and is on sale for just $8 with promo code ANKERL30.

It’s the perfect option for budget-conscious consumers who want to dip their toes in a different kind of home theater. It regularly sells for around $230, and that price was already a great bargain. Use exclusive coupon code KINJAPM2 to get it for an all-time low $157, and then start prepping your popcorn.

There is never a wrong time to grill. Sure, it might be uncomfortable to go outside when it is snowing in the winter, but you can do it. If you really love to grill and want to sneak in a couple more summer barbecues before the cold ruins your plans, you can get up to 35% off grills and smokers at Home Depot.


The Traeger Renegade Pro Wood Pellet Grill and Smoker is $488 during today’s sale. If you’re looking for a compact, budget-friendly option, the Dyna-Glo Charcoal Grill is $108. You can even make your own hibachi at home with 38% off a Lifesmart Propane Gas Hibachi Style Flat Top Griddle.

Men’s and women’s styles are 20% off, and the brands all the cool guys and gals are wearing, including Nike, Adidas, Camper, Teva, Vans, Reebok, PUMA, and more (plus our favorite neon trainers), are included. So if you want to stock up on the most stylish sneakers, summer-y sandals, or booties for fall, step to it.


6-Pack Extra Large Dryer Balls | $10 | Amazon | Promo code BAK2SKL42

Wool dryer balls are the hottest laundry invention of the decade, and you can get six extra large ones for $10 with promo code BAK2SKL42. Just toss them in your dryer, and your clothes will dry faster, come out softer, and have fewer wrinkles at the end of the cycle.

At the very least, you should use dryer balls instead of fabric softener or dryer sheets when drying towels and workout gear, as chemical fabric softener leaves a residue that makes fabrics less water absorbent, which is obviously an issue in both cases.


Refurb Vizio SB36512-F6 Dolby Atmos 5.1.2 Sound Bar | $230 | Woot

Dolby Atmos is coming for your living room, and we couldn’t be more ready. Today at Woot, you can pick up a refurbished 5.1.2 kit from Vizio for just $230, easily the best price we’ve ever seen on an Atmos sound bar kit with true upward-firing speakers.

Here’s how it works: The sound bar features three front facing speakers, and two that point upwards to bounce sound off the ceiling for that immersive Atmos effect. You then put the wireless subwoofer in the back of your room, and plug the two satellite speakers into it, ideally running the cables behind your couch. That means you don’t have to run any wires from the sound bar to the rear satellites, which makes setup much easier.

This deal is only available today, and I suspect it’ll sell out early.


Heavyweight Slim Jean | $48 | Everlane

Hey. Hey, you. Did you know that we love Everlane jeans? If you didn’t, now you do, and today, guys can snag a pair of Heavyweight Slim Jeans in two different washes—Indigo and Dark Indigo—for just $48, thanks to the retailer’s Choose What You Pay section (where Everlane lets you choose which discounted price you want to pay, but like, pick the lowest price, obviously?).

Men’s jeans rarely make an appearance in Choose What You Pay, so you’ll want to snap up these pairs before they sell out. But they’re not the only good things available on sale: Guys can also pick up a Lightweight French Terry Hoodie for just $39, and even some fall-ready Cashmere Crews for only $70.


Clarisonic Mia Smart | $169 | Amazon

Now that your phone and your home are all smart, it’s apparently time to up the intelligence of your facial cleansing brush. The Clarisonic Mia Smart allows users to connect the brush to a smartphone app, which can customize preset routines on the device, in addition to the deep pore cleansing and exfoliating you’ve come to expect from the brand.


Now, do you need your facial cleansing brush to be bluetooth enabled? Nope. But it is a cool extra feature for those are who are looking to really maximize their cleansing routine. And now, all that cool skincare tech is on sale for $169 in either mint, pink, or white. The brush also comes with a charging stand, and it’s waterproof, so feel free to scrub away while you’re in the shower or bathtub. And it’s compatible with any Clarisonic brush head, so you can really go all out.
