Amazon's kicking off another huge Android app sale today with 37 premium apps valued at over $140 for free. Be sure to check out the full list, but here are some highlights:

iPhone owners aren't totally out of luck today. Target is offering a buy one, get one 20% off promotion on iTunes gift cards, so essentially a 10% discount. We see better iTunes deals from time to time, but if you're running low on credit, this is a decent chance to load up. [Buy one iTunes gift card, get a second for 20% off]

Sling TV is the over-the-top TV service we've been waiting for (or at least, it will be once it gets AMC), and right now they're giving away popular streaming devices just for signing up.

You've got a few options here, but they all involve prepaying $60 for three months of service. If you want a free streaming dongle, you can choose from a Fire TV Stick or a Roku Streaming Stick. If you'd prefer a faster, more capable box, you can also use this promotion to get a Fire TV or a Roku 3 for just $50. Personally, I'd go for one of the sticks, but this is a terrific deal any way you slice it, especially if you were planning on getting Sling TV anyway.

If you travel with any regularity, this versatile little gadget may just be your new best friend. They call it the RAVPower FileHub, but that name doesn't do it justice, because it's really three gadgets in one:

  • Travel Router: Turn any ethernet jack you find into a Wi-Fi hotspot, which can still come in handy at certain hotels and conventions.
  • 6,000mAh USB Battery Pack: Keep your phone and tablet charged during a long day away from any power outlets.
  • File Hub: Transfer files and wirelessly stream content from an microSD card, hard drive, or flash drive to all of your devices. Imagine loading a cheap microSD card up with movies for a long trip, instead of, say, buying an expensive iPad with more local storage.

Today on Amazon, you can knock $10 off the price of the FileHub with promo code UZ96DLEU. We aren't sure how many they have in stock, or how long the promo code will last, so I'd act fast if you're interested. [ RAVPower FileHub, $37 with code UZ96DLEU. White model only.]

Need any storage to go with it?

If you've been meaning to get a NAS for your home, we've found deals on everything you'll need.

Unlike the plastic tupperware that's overflowing out of your cabinets, these glass storage containers are microwave AND oven-safe. [Glasslock 18-Piece Assorted Oven Safe Container Set, $29]

Babysitting the grill or oven while dinner cooks is nobody's idea of a good time, but this wireless temperature probe will alert you the moment your food has reached the desired temperature. That means no more stabbing it repeatedly with a thermometer waiting for all the E. coli to die, and on the flipside, no more dry, overcooked chicken. This set comes with two probes, a 300' range, and 15 pre-programmed settings for various meats. [Maverick ET733 Long Range Wireless Digital Thermometer Set, $50 with code KPCDLIMG]

Game of Thrones comes back in less than two months! Get caught up with today's Amazon Gold Box deal. [Game of Thrones: Complete First & Second Season, $56]

Complete your collection:

I love my WeMo switches, but they're a little pricey, especially if you're going to be putting them all over your house. For a cheaper alternative, check out BUZZI, on sale for just $24 today.

The outlets themselves seem to be a bit bigger than WeMo switches, but the feature set is basically the same. You can control your outlets from your smartphone anywhere in the world, group them together, and create rules. But BUZZI adds a really creative wrinkle by packing in an IR blaster to control your TV. All you have to do is plug it into the unit and point it at your home theater, and you'll be able to control everything from your smartphone. Pretty clever! [BUZZI Wireless WI-FI Smart Plug, $24]

Here's your Samsung SSD deal de jour. [Samsung 850 Pro 512GB 2.5-Inch SATA III Internal SSD, $290]


And yesterday's is still available as well. [Samsung 850 EVO 250GB SSD, $100. Also available for $90 at TigerDirect, but after a $20 rebate]

Buy a charger for the home, get a free one for your car.

Eneloops are your favorite rechargeable batteries, and you can stock up on AAs for cheap today. [16-Pack Eneloop AA Rechargeable Batteries, $38 with code ENEAA16S5]

I preordered an Xbox One (I know, I know), and I don't get why everyone hates on the Kinect. I understand wanting to have the option to get the console without it, but for me, it's absolutely worth the money. I can't count the number of times I've walked into the living room with my hands full, but could still restart whatever I was watching simply by saying "Xbox, play." It's a silly little trick, but I find myself desperately missing it when I want to pause a video on my bedroom TV, or mute my iPad while I'm cooking something in the kitchen.


The point of this is, if you buy an Xbox One, I say you should get it with Kinect. Unfortunately, most of the deals we see are for the Kinectless model. Today though, you can get a refurb on eBay, complete with a copy of Ryse, for $350. That's what Microsoft's charging for the Kinectless model, so as long as you don't mind getting a refurb, you're basically getting Kinect for free. [Xbox One with Kinect and Ryse: Son of Rome, $350]

Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth is down to $44 today on Amazon, including 11 tarot cards and a collectible box. Be sure to check out Kotaku's import review if you're not familiar with the game. [Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, $44]

The Kentucky Route Zero season pass is 50% off today. If you need convincing, just watch that video. [ Kentucky Route Zero, $12]

As the NBA season hits the All-Star break, you can grab NBA 2K15 on all platforms for $40 or less. Go Spurs. [ NBA 2K15, $40]

Assassin's Creed Unity had it's issues, sure. But for $20, I might just pick it up. [ Assassin's Creed: Unity (Xbox One), $20]
