BEST TECH DEALS

Apple AirPods 2 with Wireless Charging | $180 | Amazon
Photo: Adam Clark Estes ((Gizmodo)

We’ve seen a few deals on Apple’s latest AirPods without the optional wireless charging case, but today’s the first time Amazon’s discounted the new models with the Qi case.

In terms of size, fit, and fidgetability, these are the same AirPods that you know and begrudgingly love, but with an upgraded chip that provides Bluetooth 5.0, faster switching between devices, hands-free “Hey Siri” support, and longer battery life when talking on the phone. $180 is a $20 discount, and the best price we’ve seen.


Apple iPhone Lightning Dock - Space Gray | $25 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

There are better, more functional iPhone docks out there, but none that look as gorgeously minimal as the ones Apple makes. This is the same dock you’d see at the Apple Store (albeit without the security tether), and you can get it from Amazon for $25, compared to the $49 Apple would charge you.


Sharp 40" (1080p) LED TV | $130 | Walmart
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

At 40", this Sharp 1080p TV is probably smaller than you’d want for your living room home theater, but it could be an awesome bedroom TV, and $130 puts it in impulse buy territory.

To be clear, this wall-mountable set is unlikely to wow you with its resolution or any bleeding-edge features. In fact, it doesn’t even have any smart features built-in. Which shouldn’t be a big deal if you already have a streaming device, or don’t want any internet-connectivity.

But for shoppers on a budget, recent grads, or for a teen’s bedroom, this is a solid buy at a terrific price.


TaoTronics Active Noise Cancelling Headphones | $40 | Amazon | Clip the coupon code and use the promo code CUUY7C6C

You don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars to enjoy the benefits of noise canceling headphones: TaoTronics’ latest noise canceling over-ears are down to just $40 today with promo code CUUY7C6C and when you clip the coupon on the page.

The ANC won’t match Sony or Bose, but it’ll definitely do well, especially against consistent noises like fans or airplane engines. They’ll last 30 hours on a single charge, are extremely comfortable, and fold up for easy storage.


Audio Technica M50xBT | $130 | Amazon
Photo: Audio Technica

Audio Technica’s legendary M50x headphones finally got built-in Bluetooth late last year, and today at Amazon, you can grab the new version for $130. That’s about $70 less than usual, and one of the best prices we’ve seen.

The M50 line is highly regarded for its comfort, even frequency response, and amazing overall sound quality for the price, and now you can enjoy the same benefits with no strings wires attached.


Logitech Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Today’s big Amazon Gold Box is chock-full of popular Logitech peripherals for work and play, today only. Inside, you’ll find a lot of mechanical keyboards, headphones, speakers, a webcam and work and gaming mice, including the Logitech G Pro Gaming Headset, one of the most used headsets in the Overwatch League.

Want one of the best work mice you can buy? It’s here, too. As well as the first big discount on the new Logitech G635 headset.

For all the deals though, be sure to head over to Amazon. Just be warned, like all Gold Box deals, these prices will only stick around until the end of the day.


Roku Streaming Stick+ | $49 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

The Roku Streaming Stick+ packs more features than you’d ever think was possible in such a small dongle. You get 4K, HDR, advanced Wi-Fi, a voice remote, basically anything else you could want in a larger streaming box. Amazon has it for just $49 today, which is a match for the lowest price we’ve seen this year, or about $10 less than usual.

Best Home Deals

SimpliSafe 7-Piece Home Security System | $200 | Woot
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

Have you been on the market for a home security system, but didn’t want to shell out a ton of money for a high-tech system or pay hefty monthly fees? We’ve got you covered. Right now you can get the SimpliSafe 7-Piece Home Security System for about 30% off, priced at $200 on Woot.

Advertisement

The SimpliSafe system comes with a base station, a keypad, three entry sensors, two motion sensors, a yard sign, and two window stickers. It is easy enough to set up on your own and does not come with a pesky monthly contract like some home security systems. There is a backup battery that will kick in during power outages for up to 24 hours of extra battery life. The SimpliSafe system was designed to detect the specific heat signatures of humans, so you won’t get alerts if there’s a dog on the monitor. Though, who wouldn’t want to know if there is a dog at their door?


Kyoku Daimyo 7" Damascus Steel Santoku Knife | $80 | Amazon | Promo code KYOKUSN2

Update: The chef’s knife code isn’t working right now, but the santoku is still valid.

Advertisement

You might not have heard of Kyoku, but we found their Daimyo damascus steel chef’s knife to be a joy to use, and spellbindingly beautiful to look at too.

Now, they’re offering our readers and exclusive deal: use promo code KYOKUCXU at checkout to slice $20 off the price of the 8" chef’s knife that we tested, or code KYOKUSN2 to save on a 7" Santoku version, which is more maneuverable when rocking back and forth to chop vegetables.


Oria Mini Screwdriver Set | $11 | Amazon | Promo code HA7ZRHZWLW

If you’re the kind of person who scoffs in the face of warranties and wants to repair their own phone, this $11 tool kit (with promo code HA7ZRHZWLW) has every tiny screwdriver you could need to open up most gadgets, plus a flex shaft for reaching into tight spaces, say, inside a PC case.


Free Bacon For Life | Butcher Box

Butcher Box’s most mouth-watering annual offer is finally back: Free bacon in every box for the life of your subscription. Bonus bacon. Forever.

Advertisement

Butcher Box ships grass fed beef, heritage grade pork, and free range chicken right to your door for less than $6 per serving, and if you sign up now for a limited time, you’ll get a FREE pack of uncured bacon in every box for the life of your subscription. Think of all you could do with an extra pack of bacon every month.

Your bonus come bundled with any of Butcher Box’s pre-selected boxes, which are priced at $129 for 24 servings, or $238 for 48 servings, which can be delivered every 30 or 60 days. For a nominal surcharge, you can also build a completely custom box, with your choices of proteins.

Note: You’ll have to enter your email at the beginning of the process. I know, it’s annoying.


Pyrex Simply Store Glass 10-Piece Set | $15 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

This 10-Piece Pyrex Set is essential to any kitchen, and it’s down to just $15 right now. Dishwasher, microwave save, freezer and oven safe, these containers can weather whatever you throw at ‘em.

Advertisement

This is a rare discount on this particular bundle, which includes a set includes a 4-cup round dish, a 3-cup rectangular dish, a 6-cup rectangular dish, and two 2-cup round dishes. In fact, this is the first discount we’ve seen this entire year. So order yours before they jump back up to full price.


USPS US Flag 2018 Forever Stamps (Book of 40) | $22 | Amazon | Clip the 10% off coupon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Buying stamps IRL is weird. Either you have to stand in line at the post office for hours, or you have to go to a pharmacy or whatever and speak to an actual human (the horror!) to get them from their hiding place behind the counter. So let’s all collectively agree to buy stamps on Amazon from now on—emphasis on the “now,” because you can get this book of 40 Forever Stamps for just $22 today when you clip the 10% off coupon. So take this deal to your mailbox, and send it.

Advertisement

To be clear, Forever Stamps are currently priced at $.55, so you aren’t really saving any money compared to buying them at the post office; you’re just getting the added convenience of ordering online with Prime shipping.


Rabbitgoo 3D Window Films Privacy Film | $6 | Amazon | Promo code 30BESTFILM

It’s normal to want a little privacy in your home, but why does that have to mean languishing in darkness with all shades drawn? Stop punishing yourself for wanting to deter neighbors’ prying eyes, and load up on these adhesive window films for $6 with promo code 30BESTFILM.

Advertisement

The peel-and-stick sheets are easy to install and won’t leave behind a sticky residue when its time to take them down. They also block out 96% of UV rays while still allowing natural light to filter through. Plus, that 3-D tiled design is downright pleasant! So get some for your windows before the curtain goes down on this deal.


EZBASICS Wine Foil Cutter | $8 | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

It would take more than foil to, well, foil my drinking plans. But it is admittedly annoying to have to pick away at the foil that covers some wine corks by hand. It seems, however, that this relatively minor issue can be solved with this handy wine foil cutter, now on sale for just $8. Just place the cutter on top of the wine bottle, squeeze, and twist, and that wine is ready for uncorking. Because nothing should stand between you and your glass of pinot.


Weber Chimney Starter | $17 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

A chimney starter is the fastest way to get your charcoal hot enough to grill with, and Weber’s top-selling model is on sale for $17 right now, just in time for your Fourth of July barbecue.

We’ve seen it drop to $15 on a few brief occasions over the past year, but otherwise, $17 is about as cheap as it gets. Just stuff some newspaper in the bottom, add your charcoal, light the paper on fire, wait until the coals turn gray, then turn the whole thing over (carefully for pete’s sake!) with the heat-shielded handles and pour the piping hot charcoal into your grill.

Oh, and invite me over to help eat whatever you’re cooking, that’s the final step.


Eufy BodySense C1 Smart Scale | $20 | Amazon | Promo code EUFYSLC1
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you want to keep track of your summer weight loss goals, the new model of Anker’s ultra-popular Bluetooth smart scale is on sale today for just $20 right now with promo code EUFYSLC1, the best price we’ve ever seen on a smart scale from a major brand.

In addition to functioning as a normal digital bathroom scale, the Eufy BodySense can measure metrics such as body fat percentage and body water, and sync all of that data over Bluetooth to your iOS or Android smartphone, and send it to those platforms’ Google Health and Apple HealthKit apps. You can see my impressions of the previous model here, but it’s the most seamless and reliable smart scale I’ve ever personally used.


Somewhat counterintuitively, dull kitchen knives are more dangerous than sharp ones, as they require more pressure to use, and are more likely to slip off the side of whatever you’re cutting, and into your hand.

Luckily, you don’t necessarily need to buy a new knife to get a sharp edge; this professional electric sharpener is down to $100 on Amazon today. Boasting a fantastic 4.6 star review average from over 1,400 Amazon customers, the Chef’s Choice 15 XV can even convert standard 20 degree edges into even sharper 15 degree edges, meaning your knives could actually come out sharper than they were when you first bought them.


Right now a Gotham Steel smokeless electric grill is on sale for about $50. It promises to offer the same char-grilled texture and flavor as you would get by grilling outside... without going outside. Admittedly, this is an oddly-timed discount but it’s also $35 less than what’s currently on Amazon and the best price we’ve seen for this particular item.


Assorted Dehydrated Cereal Marshmallows, 3-Pound Pack | $18 | Amazon
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

Sure, summer is literally starting now, but who gives a crap about dieting? Throw out your healthy food (or donate it, don’t be wasteful) and buy a giant bag of cereal marshmallows. Seriously, right now you can get a 3-pound bag of Cereal Marshmallows for $18 when you Subscribe & Save. Why waste your time combing through a box of cereal for the best part when you can get an entire bag or straight sugar without anything in your way?


Roav by Anker SmartCharge Halo | $14 | Amazon | Promo code ROAVF3WA

Just when you thought you had car chargers pegged, Anker went out and made the smartest one you’ve ever seen.

Advertisement

Similar to the Nonda Zus, the Roav by Anker SmartCharge Halo connects to your phone over Bluetooth while you drive. When you turn the car off and the Bluetooth connection breaks, the Roav app will mark down your parking location on a map, so you can find your way back.

Perhaps more usefully, every time you start your car, the SmartCharge will also log the health of your car battery, so you can track its charge over time from your phone, and get a replacement ready before you get stranded in your office parking garage on a Friday evening.

Advertisement

Those features alone (along with three total ports, including a Quick Charge 3.0 one) would make this worth $14 (with promo code ROAVF3WA), but it does have one last trick up its sleeve: A customizable accent light. The LED ring around the USB ports can display 16,000 different colors, and you can choose your favorite from the app to make it perfectly match (or stand out from) your car’s own dashboard lighting.


Salad Cutter Bowl | $6 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius

If you hate getting a bunch of dishes dirty when you’re cooking, you can streamline your vegetable chopping process. Using this Salad Cutter Bowl from Cenow on Amazon you can rinse and cut vegetables in one place. It comes with a bowl, strainer, and a cutting board. The bowl can rotate, so you can evenly chop your vegetables when preparing a salad. And if you were concerned, for some odd reason, that this bowl causes white pollution, it does not, according to the Amazon description!


Anker Roav DashCam A1 | $41 | Amazon | Clip the 5% coupon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

In a very short amount of time, Anker’s first foray into the dash cam market has spawned an entire line of products, and one of the company’s top-selling dash cams just got one of its best discounts ever.

The Roav DashCam A1 is mostly a spec-for-spec match for the original C1, though it operates in a slightly wider temperature range, and is designed more like a traditional action cam than a purpose-built dash cam. That makes it a little less sleek on your windshield, but allows you to tilt it left and right, rather than just up and down. It’s really a matter of personal preference, but any dash cam with Wi-Fi and Anker’s level of customer service for $41 (after clipping the 5% coupon) is worth checking out, if you ask me. It normally sells for $56, so its list price already represents a significant discount, even before the coupon.

$59 Custom Shirts | Indochino | Promo code KINJA19

Buying a suit off the rack is almost always a disappointing experience. It never fits quite right, the selection is limited, and it always feels like you’re spending way too much for a garment that you don’t really love.

Indochino addresses all of these shortcomings with custom tailored suits (and more!) that are cut to fit your specific body, and that allow you to tweak all of the little details and accoutrements to your liking. So today, head over there and design totally unique suit that’s built just for you for just $299 with promo code KINJA19.

That code will work on any of the suits on this page, and includes all of your customizations and shipping.

You’ve never bought a shirt like this before.

Just about the only thing it doesn’t include is a shirt to wear underneath, and they’ve got you covered there too with a $59 shirt of your choice with promo code KINJA19. And just because it’s “just a shirt” doesn’t mean you don’t get a ton of customizations here too. You can configure it with six different collars, multiple lengths (say, if you want to wear it untucked), short sleeved or long sleeved, and more.


Online Sample Sale | BAGGU
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

There are many things I don’t know in this life, but here’s one thing I’m sure of: I can never own enough BAGGU bags. Now, you too can experience the joy of BAGGU for a lot less than usual thanks to their annual Online Sample Sale, happing now.

Advertisement

A ton of the bag brand’s coveted classics are marked down by up to 60%, with a bunch of backpacks, totes, and wallets priced as low as $20 or less. I can personally vouch for this $20 grid-patterned Duck Bag, the $86 Drawstring Purse in either black or brown (I have both colors! It’s that good!), the $70 Cross Body Purse, and this 3D Zip Set of nylon pouches, not to mention, this smaller version of my beloved Standard BAGGU nylon sack. As for me, I’ll probably pick up a new backpack or tote, because I feel like I’m legally obligated to take advantage of these amazing prices (I’m not, but you get it). No matter which BAGGU you choose from this grab bag of deals, rest assured that you’re bagging something great.


Philips Sonicare Diamond Clean Classic | $120 | Amazon

While this particular Diamond Clean doesn’t include a Bluetooth-connected app, it does pulse 31,000 times per minute, it works with the complete lineup of Sonicare brush heads, and it comes with a unique glass wireless charger and a travel case. $120 is a full $80 less than usual for this brush, so go make your dentist proud.

Best Media Deals

Kindle Oasis (Previous Generation) | $200 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

A new Kindle Oasis with adjustable color temperature is out next month, and that means you can score the previous generation model, which is otherwise identical, at a rare discount.

Starting at $200 for 8GB (down from $250), the Oasis is IPX8 waterproof, has physical page turning buttons (an underrated luxury!), the biggest screen of any Kindle, and an adaptive front light built from an array of 25 LEDs, compared to just five on the Kindle Paperwhite. It’s a splurge, sure, but if you love reading on a Kindle, it could be a worthwhile one before this model sells out completely.

Best Gaming Deals

Super Mario Maker 2 | $52 | Amazon | Prime members only

Amazon’s $10 video game preorder credits seem to have gone the way of the dodo, but that doesn’t mean you can’t save a few bucks. Super Mario Maker 2 for Switch is discounted to $52 right now for Prime members, the best price we’ve seen so far. Note: Discount shown at checkout.

That’s not a huge price drop, obviously, but as far as first party Nintendo games go, it’s as good as you can hope for. Let’s a-go.

If you suddenly find yourself in need of extra controllers for your Super Smash Bros. parties (like I do, every other Saturday), PowerA’s Enhanced wireless controller is down to $35 on Amazon right now, an all-time low. It’s laid out exactly like my Pro controller, but with a few twists.

Advertisement

For one, it’s green and features Link’s silhouette, but it also has a couple customizable buttons on the grip and uses AA batteries, in lieu of the internal battery of the Pro.

Today’s deal is the lowest price we’ve seen, or about $15 off the going rate.

DEALS YOU MAY HAVE MISSED

Eneloops are our readers’ favorite rechargeable batteries, and Amazon’s running a rare on a set today. This $35 (normally $50) bundle includes 8 AA, 4 AAA batteries, and a charger.

Advertisement

The Eneloop line has an incredible reputation, and I have them powering many of my devices, including my external camera flash.

This is the first discount we’ve seen all year and it matches the one we found during the holidays.


It’s time to ditch your old spinning drive for this fast $45 solid state drive from Kingston. This particular 2.5-inch model is currently marked down to an all-time low, no coupons or codes necessary.

Advertisement

At a half terabyte, it’s probably got enough space for your OS, apps, and at least most of your personal files, making this an awesome investment at this all-time low price.

And even if you already have an SSD-powered PC, you can build reliable, fast external drive for cheap.
