Today’s Best Tech Deals

ASUS ROG Swift PG348Q 34" Gaming Monitor | $750 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Asus’s ROG line of gaming monitors are the favorite among pro gamers and with good reason: they’re awesome. This ASUS ROG Swift PG348Q 34" monitor is packed with all the stuff you’d want from a gaming monitor.

The PG348Q offers a curved panel (which is awesome for immersive gaming), uses G-Sync (which eliminates tearing), and a 3440x1440 resolution. There is one minor flaw: the 100Hz refresh rate. While 144hz is the gold standard for competitive gaming, it’s actually a rarity in ones this size.

This current price is the lowest we’ve ever seen, and it’s unlikely to last. And yes, seven hundred and fifty dollars may seem hard to swallow, but it’s ostensibly two monitors in one. So, rocket jump over and buy this thing before... well, it’s game over man.


Gunnar Glasses | $36 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

While Gunnar glasses are marketed towards gamers, they can be effective at reducing eyestrain for anyone that spends their day staring at a screen. The problem is that they’re typically pretty expensive. Today though, you can grab a pair on Amazon for $36.

These glasses promise to lessen strain and headaches caused by the blue light emitted from screens. Users report fewer headaches and an easier time sleeping.

Better still, this price is about $10 off the normal going rate, and the lowest we’ve seen on Amazon in over a year.


Xcentz Universal Power Adapter | $20 | Amazon | Promo code KINJA759
Graphic: Amazon

Anyone who ever travels overseas or would like to travel overseas should have a universal power adapter at the ready, and in 2019, you should probably go ahead and get one with USB-C.

This universal adapter from Xcentz includes a universal AC outlet that you can plug anything into (assuming it supports universal voltages, as most modern electronics do), plus three standard USB charging ports, and an 18W USB-C Power Delivery port for things like laptops and your Nintendo Switch.

18W isn’t a particularly fast port, but it’s all you need to charge laptops overnight, or your iPhone at full speed with a compatible cable. The adapter’s currently priced at $30, but you can get it for $20 with code KINJA759.


VAVA USB-C Connectivity Hub | $33 | Amazon | Promo code KINJAUC006 plus 5% clippable coupon

Turns out, having a laptop with only USB-C ports means you need to carry a dongle with you from time to time. Who knew? Luckily, these $33 hubs from VAVA (5% clippable coupon + promo code KINJAUC006) are designed to perfectly match your MacBook, and turn one USB-C port into an ethernet port, an SD card reader, an HDMI output, and three USB 3.0 ports. There’s even pass-through USB-C charging, so you’re not even really using up one of your precious ports.


Anker SoundCore Spirit X Bluetooth Headphones | $30 | Amazon | Clip the $6 coupon
Graphic: Amazon

Anker’s SoundCore Spirit X headphones are the sportiest member of the SoundBuds family, and are designed with active users in mind. Their ear wings ensure they stay put while you exercise, and an internal hydrophobic coating means your sweat won’t fry them. Hell, you could even swim with them. Their best spec though? 12 hours of battery life, which is basically unheard of in the space.

Advertisement

They normally sell for $40, but they’re currently marked down to $36, and you can knock an extra $6 off that price by clipping the coupon. Even if you already have a set of wireless headphones, it never hurts to toss an extra pair in your gym bag or luggage in case you forget them.

Have you had your eye on some Cuisinart cast iron cookware recently? Maybe you’re looking to spruce up your own collection at home, or you have a friend’s wedding to attend soon. Wedding registries are often full of high-quality cast iron cookware. Today only, you can check out some of these items off your list. You can get a Cuisinart Cast Iron Casserole 5.5-Qt. for only $55. The Cuisinart Cast Iron Chicken Fryer (which is meant for more than just chicken, FYI), is $70, as is the Cuisinart Cast Iron Casserole 7-Quart.

Anker Roav 36V Chainsaw | $149 | Amazon | Promo code ROAVGDT3 + $40 coupon
Anker Roav 2100 PSI Pressure Washer | $120 | Amazon | Promo code ROAVGDT3
Anker Roav 36V Leaf Blower | $120 | Amazon | Promo code ROAVGDT3

Well, it’s come to this. Having thoroughly conquered the worlds of phone charging, home security, weight tracking, and wireless headphones (among many others), Anker’s next big foray is into the world of power tools.

Specifically, a new cordless leaf blower, a cordless chainsaw, and a pressure washer (which has been out for a few months). Yes, Anker sells a freakin’ chainsaw now, and it runs for 30 minutes on a charge of its included lithium-ion battery pack. Is that meant as a threat to other would-be consumer electronics companies? That’s up to interpretation.

All three devices are on sale right now, just in time for your outdoor spring cleaning needs. Just remember the three rules: Wear safety goggles, use two hands at all times, and don’t forget the promo codes.


CRAFTSMAN V60 3-in-1 Cordless Lawn Mower | $400 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Ahead of Father’s Day, Amazon is discounting the Craftsman V60 3-in-1 Cordless Lawn Mower to just $400, or about $50 off its regular price. As its name suggests, this particular model uses 60V motor, that’s designed for high performance mowing and mulching. The unit packs a 5.0Ah battery which is designed for lawns 1/3 of an acre.

This is the best price Amazon has offered on this particular unit, so act fast.


Hoover Vacuum Cleaner Air Lift Deluxe | $80 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

Furniture? Staircases? Hard floors? Carpets? Crevices? The disgustingly dusty top of your ceiling fan? This discounted Hoover vacuum isn’t exactly sexy (it still plugs into the wall, in 2019!), but it’ll do a great job of cleaning all of them. The entire vacuum even pops off of its wheeled base for added handheld maneuverability.

This $80 price is about $40 off its regular going rate and the lowest price we’ve ever seen.


As far as gas grills go, the Weber Spirit II is the be-all, end-all. Now, you can get it delivered from Amazon, complete with free expert assembly, so you can focus on the rest of your barbecue preparations.

Today’s $349 price has been basically the going rate all year (it usually sold for $400 prior), but the expert assembly usually costs $60-$80. Could you set up the grill by yourself? Of course. But hey, it’s on Amazon’s dime, so why not?

The Spirit II features two burners, 450 square inches of cooking space, two side tables, six tool hooks, and solid construction. Here’s what our readers had to say about it on Co-Op:

For a propane grill, I’ll take the Weber Spirit E-310.

Runs about $450 retail.

- Big enough for most families / small get-togethers

- Weber construction is SOLID.

- Cast-iron grates

- Costs more than some, but will EASILY outlast them.

I do prefer the previous generation that had the propane tank enclosed behind a door, though. - PhilMills_Forgot_His_Burner_Key

I live in a city and have limited outdoor space, it’s the best option in the mid sized grill market. - crayoneater 

This is the grill I have my eye on. One of the kinja sites here (maybe Lifehacker) did a whole grill review on a bunch of models and this one performed pretty well and had good even heating from what I remember. Once spring rolls around I’ll probably ditch my old one and get this one. - RobNYC


Father’s Day Wine Cooler Sale | Amazon

Tell everyone in your life to chill the F out and enjoy a cold glass of rosé. If you think rosé is gross, don’t worry, you can chill your bottles of white and red wine in one of these Ivation wine chillers. Right now, Amazon has a gold box with seven Ivation 12 or 18 bottle Coolers in prep for Father’s Day. But you don’t need to be a dad to get a $104 wine fridge that holds 12 bottles of your favorite adult beverage.


Cuisinart Classic 8-Piece Cookware Set | $64 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you’re still rocking the $10 pans you bought at Walmart during college, it’s time to graduate to a real set of stainless steel cookware. This Cuisinart collection features fast and even-heating aluminum cores sandwiched inside the durable and heat retaining stainless steel bases.

Unlike some “true” tri-ply pieces, the aluminum core doesn’t extend up the side walls here, and these pans aren’t induction compatible. But if you can live without that, this set is selling for the lowest price we’ve ever seen.


Instant Pot IP-DUO60 | $70 | Amazon

If you don’t own a pressure cooker, today’s a great day to fix that, as Amazon’s knocked the highly-rated Instant Pot IP-DUO60 down to $70, within a dollar of the best price we’ve seen all year.

Instant Pots do more than just cook foods quickly, though they certainly do that. In fact, it’s is also our readers’ favorite slow cooker, and an amazing rice cooker too. To put a fine point on it: It’s one of the most versatile kitchen gadgets you can own, and worthy of all the hype.

Today’s Best Gaming DealS

Monopoly For Millennials | $7 | Walmart
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Monopoly for Millennials, which eschews the traditional real estate market game format—the tagline is “Forget real estate. You can’t afford it anyway.”—in favor of collecting “experiences” like a 3-day music festival or, um, couch surfing (?), offended an entire generation upon its release back in November. But now, you can get the game for just $7 at Walmart and find out what all the fuss was about. That’s a price that any adulthood-challenged millennial can afford, right? (See, it’s funny, because millennials are riddled with debt and ruining everything. Ha!)

Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

It is time to introduce the little ones in your life to Clue. If you think the adult version of the game is a little too murder-y for kids, then Clue Junior Game is a safe alternative. Rather than find out if someone was killed with a candlestick, kids can figure out The Case of the Missing Cake. Right now, the dessert-centric game is around $5 off its regular price on Amazon.


Kingdom Hearts III [PS4] | $29 | Amazon

If you’ve somehow managed to keep track of Kingdom Hearts’ story over the years—or even if you haven’t, and just want to enjoy a bizarre mashup of Disney and Square Enix IPKingdom Hearts III is down to an all-time low $29 on PS4, and only $1 more on Xbox One today.


Sphero R2-D2 | $45 | Amazon

At its original $180, Sphero’s R2-D2 droid was something for Star Wars fans to drool over, but probably not buy. But for just $45? It’s the droid you’re looking for.

Note: It’s temporarily out of stock, but you can still order it for this price.

You can make R2 run around your desk with a virtual joystick on a phone app, but more importantly, you can make him emote. Even its included charging cable matches the copper color of the power couplings on his feet. I shouldn’t have to tell you that this would be a great gift for any Star Wars fan.
