#1 nintendo labo

Nintendo Labo Variety Kit | $25 | Best Buy

Labo is Nintendo at its weird, wonderful best. The cardboard Variety Kit can turn your Nintendo Switch into a fishing pole, a motorcycle, a piano, and more fun toys. Again, this is cardboard!

So if you have a Switch and you have a kid (that second part is optional, it’s okay to play with this yourself), $25 is a solid $35 discount on the Variety Kit, and the Robot Kit, which literally turns your Switch into a freakin’ mech suit, is also on sale for $25 at Best Buy.

That sponge you use to clean off the plates that touch your food? Yeah, it’s absolutely covered in germs. Throw that disgusting thing in the trash ASAP, and order these $6 silicone dishwashing gloves, complete with built-in scrubbers on the palms, from Amazon. Silicone won’t trap water, and thus, tons of mildew, like sponges will, plus they’ll keep your hands safe from all that dishwater and old stuck-on food. Just be sure to buy before this deal goes down the drain.

If you’re taking your kids on a long road trip, and don’t want your backseat to look like an episode of Hoarders...I’m sorry, you’re probably out of luck, even with these seatback organizers. But they’re cheap ($14 for two of them), they have built-in tablet holders, and they can’t hurt, right?

#4 anc headphones

Mpow H8 Noise Canceling Bluetooth Headphones | $24 | Amazon | Promo code MPOW161AB

While I’m sure the sound quality and noise cancellation abilities of these Mpow over-ear Bluetooth headphones don’t live up to the likes of Sony’s WH1000XM3s line or Bose’s QC35s, they annihilate the competition on price at just $24 (with promo code MPOW161AB).

We’ve seen a lot of ~$40 noise canceling headphones, including several from Mpow, but $24 is basically unprecedented. I haven’t tried this exact model, but I’ve tried others from Mpow, and they’ve all been perfectly decent.

If you’re on a budget, and want to drown out airplane noise or your annoying coworkers, they could be worth trying out. Just be sure to use promo code MPOW161AB at checkout to get the deal.

Summer is drawing to a close, and that means it’s time once again for REI’s annual summer clearance, offering huge markdowns on thousands of past-season styles from the biggest brands.

Just because it’s Summer Clearance doesn’t mean you can’t find gear for the upcoming colder weather. For example, Patagonia’s ultra popular Better Sweater (men | women), the Arc’teryx Proton FL Insulated Hoodie (men) and The North Face’s ThermoBall insulated jacket (men | women) are all 50% off, while supplies last.

#8 cygolite Bike light

I don’t recommend biking at night, but I whole-heatedly endorse picking up this awesome Cygolite Streak 450 lumen bike light for a low $30. This is $15 off it’s regular price and is the lowest it’s ever been. This light has a lot of helpful features you’d want in a bike light: it’s rechargeable, comes bundled with a back light, and the bright 450 lumen light will last 100 hours on a single charge.

It’s an important thing to have, just in case you have to bike home later than you planned.

Right now, you can pick up a Philips bluetooth speaker for just $12. It’s currently $3 more on Amazon and it’s diminutive frame means you can take it basically anywhere. While it’s unlikely to blow you away with its sound quality, it’s definitely going to be better than playing music on your phone.

#10 microsd card

PNY Elite Pro 512GB microSDXC Card | $80 | Amazon

There’s no such thing as too much storage, but this... this 512GB microSDXC card from PNY may be overkill for most people. If you’re a dedicated Nintendo Switch user with a lot of games and plan on buying a whole lot more, this could be a solid $90 investment.

You’ll be able to fit a ton of games, movies and music with half a terabyte of storage. And this $80 price may seem steep, but it’s a match for an all-time low. If you end up buying this one, I applaud your commitment to storage.
