Seagate’s FireCuda is one of the most popular PS4 replacement drives out there, thanks in large part to the built-in 8GB of flash storage that can speed up your boot up and load times. Not for nothing, but it’d work for your PC as well. This is the best price we’ve ever seen, matching the one we saw on Prime Day.

Right now, you can pick up this USB-C wall charger with 60W power delivery for just $23. This miniscule charger is powerful enough to charge a MacBook Pro, a Nintendo Switch, and, of course, the latest iPhones.

This particular charger is a big improvement over the one that comes with Apple’s MacBooks. For one, it’s smaller and it’s also black. This particular unit also uses GaN power tech, which are more efficient and generate less waste heat than silicon. Pretty sweet right?

I’m told there are students right now who are on something called “winter break. If you’re one of those people, I envy you. If you’re one of those people and your laptop crapped out on you over the break, allow me to introduce your silver lining: the Asus Vivbook 15, which seems to regularly sell for $600 elsewhere, is $550 on Newegg until Monday.

While not the steepest discount, its narrow bezels and heavily MacBook-inspired design make it look more premium than its price tag suggests. In fact, the ErgoLift hinge design elevates its typing experience several notches above Apple’s. To top it off, it’s powered by AMD’s quad-core R7-3700U processor with Radeon Vega 10 discrete graphics.

I reviewed this laptop a while back, and I’ll say, even before Asus improved the performance, I was impressed by its sheer value. For big-size thinkers on a mid-size budget, it’s well worth this discounted price.

If you’re looking for an Beats Pro-esque experience for your next earbud purchase but don’t want to pay the Apple Tax, TaoTronics’ SoundLiberty 79 are down to just $46 with our exclusive promo code KINJA079.

I’ve been using a pair as my dedicated gym bag set, and they’ve been a tremendous boon to my workouts. They are super comfortable, can last for 8 hours, plus the case adds an extra 40 hours. This pair miraculously stays put in my ears, which is pretty sweet.

The Bluetooth 5. 0-powered connection is mostly good. From my experience, there’s some quirkiness when linked to the Peloton but I couldn’t replicate the problems during any other workout. As for the ANC, I’d say the quality is more terrific, noise-isolating, as opposed to truly noise canceling. Which is to say, they’re still great for workouts. The case feels a little cheap, but it rarely left my bag. It seems like Taotronics put all the money into the earbuds themselves, which is the smart move.

For under $50, this pair of truly wireless earbuds is a bonafide steal.

Wool Dryer Balls (Pack of 6) | $8 | Amazon | Promo code XTD92QNK

While I don’t personally have a problem with dryer sheets (I’ve never used a traditional fabric softener), my friends who use dryer balls all claim superior laundry experiences. No more static cling, no more chemicals, and no more long wait times when it’s time to dry. That last part is especially important if you’re, say, living in an apartment and have to pay to do laundry.

Advertisement

The only problem is, dryer balls often bear a cost premium over their liquid- and sheet-based counterparts. Well, at least until next Tuesday they don’t have to be. On Amazon right now, you can order a six-pack of balls from New Zealand company Babl Life for $8, 50% off the regular price, using the discount code XTD92QNK at checkout. Dryer balls to the wall!

Keeping your keyboard clear of dust is such a hassle. Even if you get a good wet wipe in-between the keys, it still might not be enough. But! I may have a solution: Color Coral dust cleaner! It’s made out of a gooey gel that’ll be able to get into every crack, corner, and crevice to remove all the dust forevermore. I mean, I’m being somewhat dramatic, but you get my point, it works! And at $6, which is a good 25% off it’s original price, it’s worth giving a try. Make sure to grab one of these before it’s gone.

If you’re anything like me, Parasite was one of the few things that brought you joy last year. Amid the global insurgence of wealth inequality, not to mention the gradual destruction of the planet, the film managed to criticize the systemic root of those problems while refraining from overly ham-fisted evangelizing.

Its message universal and increasingly relevant, Parasite has since gone on to win four Oscars—including Best Picture—for 2020. For those left wanting more after watching Parasite, Vudu is selling a $15 Bong Joon-Ho 3-pack digital collection featuring Mother, The Host, and Barking Dogs Never Bite.

Advertisement

While I haven’t seen any of these films myself, my partner explained to me that The Host is about a giant mutant creature that emerges after the U.S. military dumps a bunch of toxic waste in the Han River in Seoul. Also that second part happened in real life.

In other words, this is exactly my shit.

Razer makes some of the best gaming peripherals out there, and right now the Razer Viper ultralight gaming mouse is marked down to its lowest price on Amazon. There’s a lot to like about this sleek, comfortable mouse including gaming-level optical sensor and enough RGB lighting to make even the most hard-core gamers blush.

This ambidextrous mouse is also absurdly light. My brother owned this 69 gram mouse for a spell and it felt like I wasn’t using one at all.

If you want a no-frills (i.e. no RGB lighting) headset, consider the Logitech G332 SE. While it’s not flashy by any means, it’s got big 50mm audio drivers, a flip-to-mute mic, and uses a 3.5mm jack so it’s compatible with a PC and most gaming consoles.

This is the best discount we’ve seen on this particular headset. The Logitech G332 SE typically sells for around $45-60, so this is a terrific buy.

Over the weekend, I saw the Sonic live action movie, and although it didn’t have the forever-cursed human teeth design, it did tell a surprisingly heartfelt story about the loneliness felt by social outcasts.

But after watching the movie, I realized, there are no new Sonic games for me to play and now I really want to play one. On the bright side, many of the existing games are on sale, either on PC or on Switch, assuming you have the right hardware.

For those more entranced by physical board games than digital video games, however, the Sonic-themed Monopoly set is currently discounted to $17 over on Amazon.

MSI P65 Creator Laptop | $1,799 | Amazon | Promo code 100CREATOR

You might not expect MSI, the gaming hardware company whose logo is a literal dragon, to make good creator laptops. It’s trying to change that perception with the P65 Creator, a thin and light studio laptop that reminds me of a certain GS65 Stealth Thin I have tucked away in my closet at home. (I guess that explains the naming convention.)

Equipped with a Studio version of Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 GPU, however, this machine is tailored to designers, video producers, photographers, and other content creators first and foremost—inside and out.

Advertisement

Weighing just over 4 pounds, this high-performing, contradictory feat of engineering normally retails for $1,899, but until February 28, that price is dropping by $100 for those who use the promo code 100CREATOR at checkout. While that doesn’t sound like a huge discount, if you were already thinking of buying one, now just might be the time to start reaching for your wallet.

If you are always super paranoid that you’ll get a flat tire and won’t be able to fill it up with air, look no further that the Autlead portable air compressor. It’s 25% off with a promo code as well as a clipped coupon on Amazon. It can inflate a flat tire in about 40 seconds, and is compatible with car tires and bikes, and it comes with a converter for balls, balloons, and other small inflatable accessories. Today is the only day you can get this sale, though, so grab one of them before they’re gone!

There are some things that you never thought you needed until you’ve actually used it, and this Scotch Flex and Seal Shipping Roll is one such product. It makes it super easy to ship items without dealing with boxes and stuffing those with packing material. Think of it another way, since this packs so light and small, it’ll definitely save you money when in shipping costs. For $7, it’s worth a try, no?

Look, this isn’t going to be the most fun thing you buy today but it’s definitely one you’d be glad to have invested in. And for what it’s worth, this is the lowest price we’ve ever seen on this particular product.

Apple AirPods (Renewed) | $112 | Amazon
Apple AirPods (Renewed) | $112 | Amazon

While Apple continues peddle the latest generation AirPods at full price ($160), you’re no sucker. You know that the only differences between the these and the first-gen AirPods are a slightly faster connection, an LED indicator, and “Hey Siri” support.

Sure, if you shell out an extra $40, you also get the option for wireless charging, but at that point you’re paying $200 for a set of plastic earbuds, albeit a set of plastic earbuds that pair seamlessly with your iPhone. But hey, for almost $90 less, you can get a decent pair of buds from three years ago.

Advertisement

Think about it, they’re only $112 right now. But if you insist on taking home the crème de la crème, consider this: AirPods 2 are down to $129 and the superior water-resistant and active noise-cancelling AirPods Pro, though temporarily sold out, are $234, down from $249.

Oh, the joys of owning a larger vehicle. Not only does it cost more for parking in just about every city I’ve ever been to, but the jump starters, too, come at a premium. On the bright side, they occasionally go on sale for almost 40% off, as is the case with the Gooloo starter pictured here.

This 1500A jump starter—which can breathe new life into your SUV, pickup truck, tractor, and even yacht—normally costs $80. Compared to the $60-$70 price tag on a lot of the 800A models geared toward more compact cars (the 1500A Gooloo supports up to 8-liter gas and 6-liter diesel engines), that’s a steep luxury tax for owners of bigger wheels.

Advertisement

Until February 20, however, you can net yourself a high-end jump starter for the entry-level cost of $50 by clipping the coupon featured here and entering the promo code N9EX9Q5M at checkout. You’ll never have to worry about your truck or your phone dying again, thanks to its built-in 15,000mAh power bank functionality.

Lodge is well known for its affordable, yet still high quality cookware which includes dutch ovens, baking dishes, griddles, and pans. Above all else, though, it has a reputation for cast iron skillets. Chief among them is this small 8-inch skillet, ideal for cooking at home and on the road. Currently half price on Amazon, this deal is too satiating to pass up.

With this pre-seasoned pan, you can bake, fry, sear, sauté, or braise your next delicious meal. Whether you’re cooking over the stovetop in your kitchen, on the grill in your backyard, or over a fire while camping, this hand-washable skillet has been fine-tuned by the South Pittsburg, Tennessee-based company for the optimal eating experience.

Great, now I want southern-style biscuits and gravy.

Equipped with up to 100 hours of playtime, you can listen to music until your heart (and ears) just can’t take it anymore. It also has some deep bass for when those Jay-Z songs are absolutely hitting and you don’t want it to stop. That’s not bad for $21, which is the lowest we’ve seen these, so grab a pair before they disappear!
