Christmas is creeping up, which means your gift shopping days are starting to dwindle. We see a lot of great deals every day, but these were our 10 favorites from Wednesday.
Head over to our main post for more deals, and follow us on Twitter and Facebook to never miss a chance to save. You can also join our Kinja Deals Community Facebook group to connect with your fellow deal hunters.
Before long, it’ll be too cold to bother schlepping to the gym, but you can keep in shape at home with this cleverly designed PowerBlock dumbbell set. Each dumbbell adjusts from 2.5 to 50 pounds in 2.5 pound increments with just the flick of a selector pin. It’s like a complete weight rack that could almost fit into a shoebox.
Today’s $230 deal is one of the best prices we’ve ever seen, so be sure to get this deal before it’s all swoled out.
Dyson vacuums dominated the nominations in our Kinja Co-Op for best vacuum, but they can be prohibitively expensive. Today though, refurbs of the popular Dyson Ball Animal Complete are down to $260 on Amazon, one of the best prices we’ve seen.
The Dyson Ball includes a brush that automatically adjusts when you move from carpets to hard floors, and seven (!!) hose tools to clean everything from your mattress to your stairs to the tops of your ceiling blade fans. And yes, it rests on top of a ball for easy maneuverability. This price is only available today, and will probably sell out early, so get yours before they’re all sucked up.
Plug in all the things with this $19 tower of power. This surge protector comes with 10 outlets, four USB ports, and its own 6ft retractable power cord. Plus, it rotates for optimum space-saving.
The new Philiips Sonicare Air Floss is a better way to clean between your teeth, and (hopefully) one you’re less likely to forget about. Just fill it with water or mouthwash, position the tip between your teeth, and hit a button, and between 1-3 high pressure bursts will rinse out all of the grime between your teeth, no floss required.
For a limited time, Amazon’s offering it for an all-time low $33 as part of a Gold Box deal, so order yours now, and impress your dentist at your next appointment.
Let your dog join in on the DNA test craze and uncover his/her ancestry with this Wisdom Panel Breed Identification test. Especially interesting if you have mixed breed dogs like I have, your pup’s DNA is compared with the 250 breeds Wisdom Panel has on file, and can provide insight into your dog’s appearance, behavior, and wellness.
This test normally sells for $75, but is down to $51 as part of Amazon’s pet-themed Gold Boxes today. So if you’ve been curious about your fur baby’s breed, bury some of those bones into one of these DNA test kits while supplies last.
I was never a comic book person growing up, though I was and still am a Star Wars person. But there’s no sense in not digesting everything that has the Star Wars name on it for the sake of staying a purist. Some canonical literature is fan fodder, and some is really, really good. Find what you like during this massive Star Wars sale from comiXology and prepare for your Last Jedi viewing in a different way.
Car jump starting batteries are nothing new, but this RAVPower model is more powerful than most at 1000A, and it’s a fantastic deal at $50. This has enough juice to start a 7L engine, but is still small enough to fit in your glove box. And of course, it’ll also charge your phone in a pinch.
Anker, producer of a lot of your favorite charging gear, has its own line of flashlights now, and you can get one for an all-time low $8 right now.
The entry-level LC40 model is IP65 dust and water resistant, but actually doesn’t include a rechargeable battery. However, you can run it on three AAAs or a single rechargeable 18650 battery, which are cheap and easy to find.
Let’s say you want a sous-vide steak for dinner. Normally, you’d have to get home from work, wait for your circulator to heat your water to the correct temperature, and then wait another hour or more for your food to cook. If you have a Wi-Fi-connected circulator, you could start the water heating process on your way home, but you’d still have to wait around while the steak cooks. Mellow fixes this hang-up with one key addition: Refrigeration.
With Mellow, you prepare your meals before leaving in the morning, or even the night before, specify what time you want to eat, and place your food bags in the cooker. Mellow will keep the water cold enough to keep food from spoiling, and start the cooking process just in time for your meal to be finished as you walk through the door. It’s sort of like a slow cooker, but instead of mushy cat food, it produces restaurant quality meats and vegetables.
Mellow normally costs $400, but it’s $100 off for the holidays, and you can add a pack of 20 bags for free with your order with promo code GIZMODO10. Just be sure to add both the bags to your cart (you’ll see the option after adding the cooker to your cart) to make the code work.
Cozy up with one of these Pinzon velvet plush blankets. They boasts an impressive 4.4-star rating with 2,000 reviews and are discounted $5 to $13 today. Unfortunately, not all colors and sizes are discounted so see below for a complete list of the blankets on sale.
