We see a lot of deals around the web over on Kinja Deals, but these were our ten favorites today.
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.
#1: Anker’s Four-Port Travel Charger
The wall charger that came with your phone just doesn’t cut it while traveling these days. In addition to probably being slow as hell, you likely have at least two or three USB-powered devices that you’ll want to charge every night while you sleep.
Luckily, Anker stuffed four USB ports and 40W of power into a tiny travel charger (with folding AC prongs!), and you can get it for $19 today with promo code BEST2242.
#2: $5 off Google Play Credit
We see deals on iTunes gift cards with some frequency, but Google Play credit almost never goes on sale. If you buy your movies, apps, music, or anything else from Google Play, this $5 gift card discount is basically free money.
#3: Zelda Books
Nintendo created three gorgeous books that are must-owns for any Legend of Zelda fan, and all three are on sale today. They aren’t all-time low prices (except for the Zelda Encyclopedia, which is only a few weeks old), but they’re solid discounts off what you’d normally pay, so you won’t have to break too many pots or cut too much grass to afford them.
#4: A versatile Blender
You don’t need to spend a ton of money to get one of those cool multi-use blenders; this Oster Pro is three kitchen gadgets in one, and it’s only $56 today on Amazon.
You get a food processing bowl, a standard blender jar, and a single-serve smoothie cup, all of which attach to the 1200W blender to transform it into the device of your choice. So you can go from chopping onions to mixing margaritas to blending a protein shake, all without ever doing the dishes.
Just note that this is a Gold Box deal, meaning this price is only available today, or until sold out.
#5: Two Discounted Dash Cams
You never think you need a dash cam until you get into an accident, or see something really cool through your front windshield, so you really should consider setting one up before you miss something important.
Today on Amazon, you can get Aukey’s well-reviewed 1080p dash cam (with a Sony sensor!) for just $56, or Vantrue’s dual-lens N2 for $110. I recently demoed the N2 Pro (which has a 1080p rear-facing lens, vs. the N2's 720p), and while the rear lens definitely won’t help you in every lighting situation, it could provide some extra context in the event of an accident.
#6: Real Down Pillows
When it comes to getting a good night’s sleep, it really starts with the pillow. You’ve probably had yours way too long and it’s time to replace that sucker. Amazon’s Gold Box is (down) filled with single and 2-pack pillow sets for great prices. But don’t sleep on this deal, because it’s gone at the end of the day.
#7: Non-Stick All-Clad Pans
Made by one of our best-selling brands, these two All-Clad skillets are within $3 of their lowest price ever. The 8-inch and 10-inch skillets are nonstick, scratch resistant, and oven safe up to 500 degrees.
This package usually sells for $60, so get them while they’re still sizzling.
#8: Lodge’s Cast Iron Grill Press
It can be used to flatten bacon or squeeze out unwanted grease from burgers and, if preheated, can really speed up cooking times by applying heat from both sides.
Like all cast iron kitchen equipment, if taken care of properly, it will last a lifetime.
#9: 15% off at The Clymb
The Clymb has everything you could need to get outdoors and do it properly, for a whole lot less than you’d think you’d need to pay. Right now, take your pick of apparel, gear, hiking accessories, and more, and grab 15% off when you use the code GOKINJA. With brands like Prana, Burton, Merrel, New Balance, Klymit, and more, there’s something for every outdoorsman.

#10: The Most Versatile Pen You’ve Ever Seen
When is a pen worth $40? Possibly never, but the GP 1945 makes a really strong case.
This Kickstarter campaign is set to ship out pens starting in November, and the demo unit they sent me is incredibly impressive. My titanium model is very solid and well built (there’s also a lighter aluminum version), to the point that I don’t think I could break it if I tried. The butt cap also doubles as a glass breaker for emergencies, the diamond knurled finger grip works as a small ruler, and you can even blow into the back of the tube to to use it as a survival whistle.
The real star of the show here though is the bolt action method of extending and retracting the tip of the pen. It gives you enough resistance to be satisfying, but not enough to be slow or frustrating, and it makes a very addictive click when the mechanism slides into place. I have no less than four fidget toys in heavy rotationon my desk, but clicking this pen was all I wanted to do today.
There’s only about a week left of the campaign, but you can still get aluminum GP 1945s for under $40, or titaniums for under $70. That’s a lot to spend on yourself, but these would make great gifts for the holidays. Plus, if you pledge $8 extra and include a note, they’ll throw in a magnesium pen core that you can use to start a fire. Just take it out and rub it against the finger grip to generate a spark.
