Whatever holidays you celebrate, we hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas day. If you feel like shopping, there are great deals to be had from Nordstrom Rack, you can add Cuphead to your new Xbox, download some books to your new Kindle, or just find something else to spend your Amazon gift cards on.
Top Tech Deals
This iClever car charger is just as tiny as the top-seller from Aukey, but it’s only $6, and includes blue lights in the USB ports so you can find them in the dark.
If you got a new monitor under the tree today, this $15 stand from AmazonBasics will raise it to a more ergonomic height, and also give you back some precious desk space.
$66 for a Logitech Harmony remote is a great deal on its face, but the real reason to buy this model is the included Harmony Hub.
The Hub allows you to use your iPhone, Android device, or even an Amazon Echo to control everything a Harmony remote can (which is basically any piece of home theater gear you can think of). So even when you inevitably lose the included remote behind the couch cushions, you’ll still have multiple ways to take control of all of your home theater gear.
Anker’s PowerPort Speed 1 is basically Anker’s take on Apple’s 29W USB-C charger that comes bundled with the 12" MacBook. They’re both small bricks with a single USB-C port, power throughput is almost identical (the Anker ekes out one extra watt), and they’ll both charge that 12" MacBook at full speed, or your Nintendo Switch when it’s in portable mode. And if you own an iPhone 8 or are planning to buy an iPhone X, it’ll also give those the fastest possible charging speeds, if you pony up for a USB-C to Lightning cable).
You probably see where I’m going with this, but there is one big difference: Price! The Apple charger will set you back $49, while the Anker is on sale for just $22, down from it usual $26.
If your router doesn’t include as many ethernet ports as you’d like, this 5-port switch is a steal at just $17.
$15 is a pretty good price for a 10,000mAh battery pack. It’s absolutely insane for one with a solar panel and 12-LED flashlight array. Obviously, that little solar panel won’t recharge the battery very quickly, but it can trickle charge it while you’re outdoors, so it’s nice to have.
The recent release of Qi-compatible iPhones means that wireless charging pads will be popular stocking stuffers this holiday season, and you can get Anker’s 5W model for $19 right now, down from its usual $24. That’s only half as fast as their 10W model (currently $26), but it’s worth noting that iPhones max out at 7.5W wirelessly, and it’ll still be plenty fast for overnight device charging.
Whether you need a small card for a dash cam, or a ton of space for Nintendo Switch games and 4K GoPro footage, these Samsung microSD cards down to their lowest prices in all four of the capacities listed below.
It’s not hard to find good deals on VPN subscriptions, but our readers’ favorite service, Private Internet Access, hardly ever goes on sale. This is the holiday shopping season though, so for a limited time, you can sign up for two years of the service for just $60, down from its usual $70. That’s just $2.50 per month to protect your browsing data, get around video geoblocks, circumvent proxy filters, and more.

Trust me when I say that once you own one of these, you’ll hardly ever use your “real” oven anymore. It preheats significantly faster, it’s much easier to program, and it’s big enough to cook all but the biggest meals. They don’t go on sale often though, and the Air model has never been this cheap before, so don’t miss out.
We’ve all had to throw away leftovers or cuts of meat and cheese that spent a little too much time in the fridge or freezer, but vacuum sealing your foods can keep them safe from freezer burn pretty much indefinitely, and dramatically extend their shelf life everywhere else.
It sounds like an expensive proposition, but today, Amazon’s selling this well-reviewed FoodSaver FM2435 starter kit for $50, an all-time low by nearly $40. Unlike lower end FoodSavers, the 2435 includes a retractable vacuum sealing hose, allowing it to vacuum seal specially designed zipper bags, in addition to the usual heat-seal bags.
Of course you can use this to store meats in the freezer for a long time, but it can also keep cheese from molding, lettuce from wilting, or cookies from going stale, just to name a few examples. Think about how much food you throw away, and you’ll get a sense of just how quickly this purchase could pay for itself.
This Paderno spiralizer can cut your favorite fruits and vegetables into versatile stings and strands, and the four-blade model is on sale for an all-time low $25, today only. It’s the perfect gift for the home chef who has everything.
This AmazonBasics space heater is on sale for an all-time low $20 today, which will leave more money in your pocket to pay for the electricity to run it.
If you ever do DIY work around the house, you really out to invest in a drill/driver and an impact driver. This DEWALT combo kit includes both, plus two batteries to power them
If you don’t own a pressure cooker, today’s a great day to fix that, as Amazon’s knocked the month-old Instant Pot IP-DUO Plus60 down to $100 today, or $20 less than usual. Although, it was down to $75 on Cyber Monday.
If you’re worried that you won’t get a ton of use out of this thing, note that in addition to standard pressure cooking, Instant Pot is also our readers’ favorite slow cooker, and one of their favorite rice cookers too. To put a fine point on it: It’s one of the most versatile kitchen gadgets you can own.
The Instant Pot Mini is still on sale for $48 as well.
This tiny tire inflator has been a hit with our readers all year long, but today’s the first time we’ve ever seen it drop to $10. Just toss it in your glove box, or even in your spare tire well, and you’ll never again be forced to scrounge together quarters to use the air pump at a gas station.

Use the code WANT30 and take 30% off everything on the site, including sale styles. That means you can grab plenty of pairs for under $5, so you really have no excuse not to get a backup.
The Philips Norelco Multigroom 3100, is, as you might have guessed, a tool to groom multiple parts of your head. There are attachments here for your hair, your beard, and even your nose hair, and you can even choose from 18 different length settings. Not bad for $13.
Let’s all assume you already upgraded your toothbrush, so what’s the next step to whiter teeth? Well, judging by the thousands of Whitestrips have readers have purchased over the years, I might start there. These are the Professional Effects strips which means they’re a little stronger than the typical whitening strips, claiming to remove 14 years of stains (for comparison, the Glamorous White strips only claim to remove 10 years).
This 20-pack box is almost always sells for $44 (save for a one-day Black Friday deal that brought it down to $30), but a $5 coupon on the page means you can get it for $39. And on top of that, you get two 1-hour express whitening strips to ramp up the whitening process.
The new Philiips Sonicare AirFloss 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 $35 when you clip the $10 coupon, which is just $2 shy of an all-time low. So go order yours now, and impress your dentist at your next appointment.

You just checked your holiday shopping list again, and whoops, you forgot a few people. It’s okay, it happens, you’ve got this.
I’d say it’s pretty likely that your giftee owns either an iPhone or an Android device, which means they ‘d love to receive an iTunes or Google Play gift card to spend on apps, movies, music, and more. Today on Amazon, you can save $15 when you spend $100 on iTunes credit (it doesn’t have to be a single $100 gift card) with code ITUNES15,
or take $5 off any $50 Google Play credit purchase with code GOOGLE.
These are both digital gift cards, so there’s no need to sweat the shipping times. You can either print them out, or just email them directly to their intended recipient.
To appease the whims of some high-level executive that just got a nice tax cut, the new Star Trek Discovery show is only available on CBS’s online streaming service, CBS All Access. That’s really annoying, but this deal makes it slightly more tolerable.
For a limited time, when you sign up for a new CBS All Access account and use promo code BINGE, you’ll get your first month for free, rather than the typical 7 day free trial. That gives you enough time to get caught up on the first half of Discovery’s first season before the show returns on January 7.
Humble’s new sci-fi & fantasy ebook bundle has enough reading material to last you for months, if not longer. 26 books are split across four different price tiers, the most expensive of which unlocks at just $18. Titans of sci-fi like Octavia Butler and Robert McCammon are well represented here, as is Timothy Zahn’s incredibly creepy Soulminder, just for starters. As always, you can name your own price, and a portion of the proceeds will go to charity.

Anki Overdrive is like slot cars for the smartphone age, and the starter set is marked down to $100 right now, which is one of the best prices ever. If it looks familiar, it’s because you probably played with it at an Apple Store at some point.

The DualShock 4 is great at many things, but it’s a little over the top if you’re just using your PS4 to watch Netflix. This remote includes all of the DualShock 4's buttons in a tiny Bluetooth package, and at $15, it’s never been cheaper
