Anker PowerLine Lightning 3-Pack, $18 with code PRIME258
Advertisement

While Anker’s come out with nylon wrapped charging cables, and even some with lifetime warranties, their original PowerLine Lightning cable is still a big improvement over the one that came with your phone, and you can get three for an all-time low $18 right now with code PRIME258.

iClever 24W USB Car Charger, $7 with code ICCAR699
Advertisement

Aukey’s tiny USB car charger is a reader favorite, but this iClever model is the same size and puts out the same 4.8A of power over two ports, and it’s only $7 today with promo code ICCAR699. Plus, unlike the plastic Aukey, this one’s made of aluminum, which is supposedly better for heat dissipation, but it definitely looks cooler.

These Mackie reference monitors almost always sell for $100 on Amazon, and even at that price are the top-sellers in the “Studio Audio Monitors” category. So if you can get them from Adorama for an all-time low $69, you should jump at the chance.

Say your wireless router can’t push a strong signal to every corner of your house, or maybe you own some kind of old set top box that needs an ethernet connection, but doesn’t live near the router. A simple powerline adapter is one of your best options for extending a home network, and you can get a kit with two receivers for just $50 today.

Death, taxes, and never having enough power outlets. These are three constants in all of our lives, and while I can’t help you with the first two, this $18 Belkin surge protector can ease your pain on the third.

Anker PowerCore II, $35 with code ANKPWR66
Advertisement

Anker’s PowerCore line has reigned as our readers’ favorite USB battery pack for nearly a year, and its long awaited sequel is $9 off today with promo code ANKPWR66.

Advertisement

For a limited time, you can grab the PowerCore II 20000 for $35, within a buck of the best price we’ve ever seen. In addition to a fresh new design, the PowerCore II includes three high speed USB charging ports with a whopping 30W shared between them, plus dual 10W microUSB inputs, allowing you to recharge the entire brick twice as quickly.

There are precious few battery packs out there with USB-C power delivery, and this 26,800mAh model from RAVPower is one of the few we’ve seen.

In addition to the two standard USB output ports, the USB-C port works as both an input and high-speed output port that can charge a 12" MacBook at full speed, or raise your Nintendo Switch’s battery level while playing it at full brightness. Just be sure to use promo code PB058KIN at checkout to get it for $64.

You don’t need to sell a kidney to afford noise-cancelling Bluetooth earbuds; these 4 star-rated Cowin E-7s are just $38 right now, or $32 off with promo code 42YFK63R.

They might not have the brand recognition of Sony or Bose, but these headphones pack in 30 hours of battery life, the ability to use them in wired mode if the battery dies, and yes, active noise cancellation that reviewers say works really well.

If you ever listen to audio from your laptop’s tiny, awful speakers, do yourself a solid and pick up these Logitech alternatives for just $20. At this price, they won’t blow anyone away, but they’ll sound worlds better than your laptop.

No matter how many HDMI ports are on your TV, chances are, it’s not enough. Luckily, this affordable five-port HDMI switch will let you plug in a ton of extra devices for just $13.

Most laptops don’t have CD drives anymore, which is mostly fine, except for that one time that inevitably pops up every year or two where you really wish you had one. Now, you can for just $22, no extra power cable required.

Mark your calendars, because Amazon’s third annual Prime Day is July 11, with the deals actually kicking off at 9PM ET the night before.

Of course, we’ll be sifting through the avalanche of deals to help you find the best stuff, but in the meantime, a few great digital discounts are already live on Amazon’s Prime Day hub page. The highlights here are six months of Audible for $9 each (rather than the usual $15), up to 40% off Kindle Unlimited subscriptions, and 15% off July 4 snacks. Again, these deals are available starting today, if you have a Prime subscription (sign up for a free 30 day trial here).

The best early access deal of them all though is undoubtedly four months of Amazon Music Unlimited for just $1. It’s only available for new members, but that’s the best deal we’ve seen on the service, which will still be less expensive than Spotify Premium ($8 vs. $10) after the promotional period expires.


6-Month PureVPN Subscription, $43 with code 6M31 | 2-Year PureVPN Subscription, $60 with code 2Y77
Advertisement

VPNs are in the news these days, and with good reason. So if you’re curious to sign up and start protecting your browsing history and personal data (or, you know, getting around websites’ geoblocks), PureVPN is running some pretty stellar discounts right now.

Advertisement

If you sign up for a six month membership and use promo code 6M31, you’ll get it for $7.20 per month rather than the listed $9, and if you commit to two years, your price will drop all the way to $2.51 per month with code 2Y77, down from $2.95. That’s less than you spend during a trip to Starbucks.

ECOVACS Gold Box, $135-$170
Advertisement

Because there are few things more American than pawning off things we don’t want to do to robots, Amazon’s kicking off Independence Day with big savings on ECOVACS robotic vacuums.

While they lack the brand recognition of Roombas, and we can’t personally vouch for them like we can for the Eufy RoboVac 11, these ECOVACS vacuums have solid reviews, and are insanely affordable. The entry level model (which also appears to be the company’s most popular) is just $135 in today’s Gold Box, and for just $15 more, you can get a Wi-Fi connected model too.

The pièce de résistance though is the $170 M80, which is both a robotic vacuum and robotic mop rolled into one. Just pop on a wet/dry cleaning cloth and the included wet/dry cleaning cloths, and put it to work on your hard floors.

Just note that these prices are only available today, and they could sell out early, so I’d place your order before you set off the fireworks.

It’s a sea turtle pool float for $12. If that doesn’t bring you joy, I can’t help you. That’s an all-time low price, so you won’t have to...shell out too much money.

I’ll see myself out.

Go to your nearest home goods store, and you’ll find dozens of airtight containers to keep food and coffee fresh. But the Friis coffe vault takes things one step further with a valve and filter that lets your roast beans vent off CO2 without opening the lid, which keeps them fresher for longer.

This $35 drinking fountain means your pets’ water bowl is less likely to run dry, yes, but the simple fact that it keeps the water is constantly moving encourages your pets to drink more and stay properly hydrated. My wife is a vet, and this gets her stamp of approval.

Anker’s beginning its drive into the automotive accessory space with an affordable new dash cam, and you can race over to Amazon to snag one for $68, the best price we’ve seen since our exclusive (and short-lived) $64 launch deal.

Advertisement

I test drove the Anker Roav DashCam, and you can see my full impressions here. But to give you the cliffnotes, it shoots 1080p, its space-saving design makes it essentially invisible to the driver, and it even includes Wi-Fi to transfer clips to your phone, which is hard to find in a sub-$100 dash cam.

Stick-anywhere motion-sensing night lights have been incredibly popular over the last year, but they don’t usually make an effort to be aesthetically pleasing. Not so with this $9 sconce from OxyLED. Maybe it’s not your style, but at least it’s trying to look nice.

Vansky Wake-Up Light, $32 with code YUMCIIOB
Advertisement

Philips Wake-Up lights have long been one of our readers’ favorite products, but now Vansky is making its own version for a lot less money.

Advertisement

Just like the Philips light, Vansky’s Deluxe Sunrise Alarm Clock fades in a sunrise-simulating light for 30 minutes prior to your designated wake-up time, and then finishes the job with your choice of six natural alarms, or an FM radio station. That means by the time your alarm goes off, your body will already have begun the process of waking up, eliminating that awful feeling of being jolted out of a deep REM cycle. You can even choose from six different light colors, a feature that doesn’t exist on any of Philips’ models.

Advertisement

I’ve had a Philips Wake-Up light for years, and absolutely love it, but $32 is an insanely great price for a feature-packed alternative. Vansky sent me a demo unit a few weeks ago, and I can confirm that it works as advertised.

Our readers have bought thousands upon thousands of Rubbermaid Easy Find Lid food storage sets over the years, but today’s a great day to upgrade to the Premier version.

Compared to the originals, these feature a stronger plastic base which is better at resisting stains and smells, and lids that snap to the bottom of their containers, so they never get separated. $21 is the best price Amazon’s ever listed on the 20-piece set (which includes 10 containers and 10 lids, not 20 containers), so stock up.

Naipo Travel Pillow, $13 with code SDLDU335
Advertisement

I’m not going to sit here and tell you that buying a travel pillow will make flying pleasant. But maybe, just maybe, it’ll let you sleep through the experience to make it go faster. This memory foam model from Naipo is just $13 today on Amazon, and needless to say, you’d pay a bit more than that at the Hudson News outside your gate.

48-count Charmin Ultra Soft, $17 with Subscribe & Save and $2 coupon
Advertisement

Charmin Ultra Strong is our readers’ favorite toilet paper, and you can pinch a few bucks off the plusher Ultra Soft when you buy 48 rolls from Amazon and clip the $2 coupon. You need toilet paper anyway, so if you’ve got the storage space, you may as well stock up.

If your tires are about due for a replacement, Discount Tire Direct is offering up to $100 in Visa gift card rebates (in addition to any manufacturer rebates) when you order four new tires, plus an additional $100 if you order wheels as well, plus an extra $60 on each if you use a Discount Tire credit card. Just enter your make and model, click the options to see tires on promotion, and you’ll see the rebate amount (either $25, $75, or $100) on the right hand side.

The newest, big-screen Nest Learning Thermostat 3.0 is down to $198 today, which is a match for the best discount we’ve ever seen. These don’t go on sale all that often, so if you have one on your wishlist, I wouldn’t hesitate.

Update: This is currently showing as out of stock on Amazon. We’ve reached out to Anker to see when and if that will be resolved. Sorry!

Anker makes a smart blood pressure monitor now, because of course they do, and our readers can get it for just $32 today, a 20% discount.

Advertisement

The Eufy BodySense Blood Pressure Monitor works with the same app you use for the company’s popular smart scale, so you can keep all of your data in one place...or export it to whatever app you want using Google Fit and Apple HealthKit. And since this is an Anker product, it also uses a built-in rechargeable battery, so you won’t have to futz around with AAs.

Just be sure to use promo code KINJA703 at checkout to get the deal.

If you’re enough of a daredevil to give yourself a haircut, this $22 battery-powered trimmer from Philips makes it easy. That’s the best price Amazon’s ever listed, so this is a great chance to declare independence from expensive haircuts.

Privé Revaux Sunglasses: 25% off with code KJAPRV25 or 35% off with code KJAPRV35
Advertisement

You can get $20 sunglasses that are polarized or $20 sunglasses with metal frames, but rarely both, and never in this many different styles.

Privé Revaux makes polarized, stylish shades for less than half of what you’d expect, and right now, our readers can take advantage of their best prices ever. Yes, the models are celebrities looking super awkward who probably had nothing better to do, but the sunglasses are actually pretty great looking.

Advertisement

The styles you see through this link are marked down to just $22 with promo code KJAPRV25 (only the lens colors you see on the search page), or choose one of these with any lens color for just $19 with the code KJAPRV35. The shades are mostly brow bar and aviator frames, which are probably the easiest styles for anyone to wear.

If you want to dip your toes into the world of electric toothbrushes, Philips’ entry level Sonicare Essence line is an amazing value at $20. I’ve been using this brush for years, and I still love it.

We saw this deal last month, and it sold out very quickly, so I wouldn’t hesitate to lock in your order if you’re interested.

Amazon’s running another solid Kindle sale today, this time with over two-dozen highly rated titles for $5 or less, including several self-help titles.

If you love books, but don’t have as much time as you’d like to actually sit down and read them, Amazon’s Prime Day Audible deal has your name on it.

For a limited time, Prime members can get six months of the service for $9 each, down from the usual $15. That entitles you to a new book of your choice each month, and everything you buy is yours to keep, even if you cancel after the six month promotional period ends. While most of these kinds of promotions are only available to new members, you can get this deal if you’ve been a paid Audible subscriber in the past, as long as you haven’t been a member within the last 30 days.

Four months Amazon Music Unlimited, $1 for Prime members. New Amazon Music Unlimited members only.
Advertisement

At $8 per month for Prime members, Amazon Music Unlimited was already more affordable than Spotify Premium or Apple Music, but Amazon’s sweetening the pot for new members by offering four months for just $1, for a limited time.

Advertisement

This deal is part of Amazon’s early Prime Day deals, and is by far the best deal they’ve ever offered on the service. If you’re a Prime member but haven’t signed up for Music Unlimited before, what’s $.25 per month to try it out?

Rather than describe this pop-up Badminton set (on sale for $41), I simply want you to enjoy American treasure Mary Carillo ranting about the sport.

Mass Effect Andromeda, $20 - PS4 | Xbox One

While certainly not perfect, I actually really enjoyed Mass Effect Andromeda. Plus, it’s likely to be the last we see of Mass Effect for quite some time. I think it’s absolutely worth $20 on PS4 and Xbox One. Remember to use promo code SAVER for free shipping.

Logitech’s G602 is more than enough gaming mouse for most people—we’re talking 250 hour battery life, 11 programmable buttons, and per-user programmable DPI settings—and it can be yours for $40 today, within a few cents of the best price we’ve seen.
