Anker’s EufyCam home security system was a Kickstarter sensation, raising over $3,000,000. And now, the new version is available to all, and the two-camera starter kit is a whopping $160 off today.

To get the deal, you’ll want to clip the $50 coupon on the product page, then add promo code EUFYKKBT at checkout, bringing the two-camera system down to $300. These 1080p cameras are water resistant, support two-way intercom, include an audible alarm if someone tries to steal them, and most importantly, they run for a full year on a single battery charge, so you can set them up and forget about them.

Like most of these security systems, you can pay a nominal fee ($2.99 per camera) for Anker’s cloud DVR service, but the base station also comes with a 16GB microSD card that can save your recordings locally as well. Either way, you’ll still be able to get motion alerts and check in live from your phone for free.

#2 kindle paperwhite

Basically every device Amazon makes was on sale for Black Friday, with one glaring exception: The new, waterproof, Bluetooth-equipped Kindle Paperwhite. So if you were holding out on a deal for all your pool and bathtub reading needs, your patience has been rewarded today with a $30 discount. We saw it for $90 briefly in January, but otherwise, this is the best deal we’ve seen.

#3 oontz speakers

The original OontZ Angle is one of our readers’ five favorite water resistant Bluetooth speakers, and you can grab it’s upgraded, rugged cousins for less today, thanks to Amazon’s Gold Box.

Both speakers are water resistant, offer solid sound, and can connect to your devices via Bluetooth. However, there are a few key differences. The Angle 3 Plus offers a longer battery life (30 v.s. 8 hours) while the Angle 3XL Ultra offers more powerful sound and can work with another to be used as a stereo pair.

#4 dyson v8 animal

Refurb Dyson V8 Animal Cordless Stick Vacuum | $210 | eBay

While it’s been supplanted by the V10, the reliable old Dyson V8 cordless vacuum is still more than enough vacuum for most people, whether you’re using it to clean cleaning rugs, hardwood floors, car seats, ceilings, shelves...pretty much anything really. Today on Dyson’s eBay storefront, you can get a refurb of the Animal version on eBay today for $210, the best price we’ve ever seen. Compared to the standard V6, this model has 75% more brush head power to lift pet hair and other debris out of carpets and furniture.

The Animal model features True HEPA filtration to filter out allergens from pet dander, and has 150% more brush bar power than the older V6. For context, this was selling for $300 new on Black Friday, and if you ask me, it’s well worth saving $90 on a refurb, which still includes a 6 month Dyson warranty.

#5 h&R block tax software

H&R Block Deluxe + State | $25 | Amazon | Prime members only. Discount shown at checkout.

Tax season is upon us, and if H&R Block’s Deluxe + State software is right for you (you can use this tool to find out), Amazon’s currently discounting it to just $25 for Prime members, after a 15% discount at checkout. That’s a few bucks more than the best price we’ve seen on Amazon, but it’s way less than the $45 H&R Block charges on its own site.

Deluxe is great for homeowners and anyone with any sort of standard investment income, but you’ll want to step up to Premium if you rent out property or are self-employed. It’s also on sale for $27 for Prime members, which is an all-time low.

Whichever one you choose, you’ll be able to import your previous years’ taxes from TurboTax if you’re switching over, and you can elect to receive all or some of your refund in the form of an Amazon gift card, with a 5% bonus.

(Heads up: This discount applies to the original retail price and overrides any existing markdowns.) Just use promo code MHWMAR0160, and load up on outdoor gear, including tents and sleeping bags, plus a whole bunch of outerwear, gloves, hats, and more to keep you toasty warm the next time you step outside.
