SanDisk 400GB Extreme microSD Card | $130 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, you can never have too much storage. And this is a lot of storage (400GB!) for a surprisingly little money ($130).

This 400GB card from SanDisk is down to its best price ever right now, or about $20 less than usual. For Switch owners who have ballooning digital libraries, this is a must buy.


Vizio P65-F1 65" 4K TV | $898 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

With 100 local dimming zones, Dolby Vision HDR support (that’s the good one), and built-in Chromecast, Vizio’s 2018 P-Series TVs are stunners, and you can grab the 65" version from Walmart for $898 right now, which is a match for its Black Friday price. It should arrive in time for the Super Bowl, and since it’s Walmart, you can pick it up yourself if you’re feeling impatient.


Leviton Programmable Light Switch | $16 | Amazon

Heading out of town and want to deter thieves, or just want to wake up to a well-lit house? This programmable light switch turns any built-in light into a smart light for $16, the best price Amazon’s ever listed.


Anker PowerCore Fusion 10000 | $37 | Amazon | Promo code FUSIONEW
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Anker’s original PowerCore Fusion combined a wall charger and a battery pack into our readers’ favorite piece of travel charging gear, and now, you can save 20% with a launch discount on a brand new version (use promo code FUSIONEW) .

The headlining improvement in the PowerCore Fusion 10000 is the jump from 5,000mAh to 10,000mAh of battery capacity. 5,000 was usually just enough juice to fully recharge my phone and my Apple Watch overnight (I frequently use the Fusion untethered when staying at my mother in law’s house, which doesn’t have an outlet near the nightstand), but 10,000mAh would be plenty of power, with some extra juice to spare.

Notably, one of the USB ports has also been replaced with a USB-C port. Sadly, it’s capped at 15W, so you won’t be able to take advantage of Power Delivery speeds, but this connector is definitely the direction the industry is heading, so its inclusion makes sense. We’re going to get a hands-on with this one in the near future, but if you want to save, you can go ahead and order now.


Aukey Aluminum 4.8A Car Charger | $7 | Amazon | Promo code AUKEYC02

Aukey’s teeny-tiny car charger is the third-best-selling product in Kinja Deals history, and now, it comes in aluminum. Does that really matter on a car charger that you can barely see? Probably not. But at only $7 (with promo code AUKEYC02), who cares?

Even with this tiny form factor, it puts out 2.4A on both ports simultaneously, so your phones and other gadgets can charge even if they’re playing music or being used for GPS. And even if you have a car charger that you already like, you should get another one just for your luggage.


Apple Smart Keyboard for 10.5-inch iPad Pro | $110 | DailySteals | Promo code KJSMARTKEY

The Apple Smart Keyboard is the perfect accessory to go with that 2017 iPad Pro you bought yesterday. At $110, this is a great deal made even better by the fact that it costs $42 less than what’s currently on Amazon right now—just make sure to use the promo code KJSMARTKEY.

It’ll connect to your iPad Pro with the Smart Connector and folds into a cover when not in use. And, hey, if you bought an iPad Pro... you actually want to do more than dick around with it, right?


Yi 1080p Security Camera | $25 | Amazon | Promo code YI4HOME9
Yi 1080p Outdoor Security Camera | $64 | Amazon | Promo code YICAME69
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Our readers have bought thousands of Yi’s home security cameras, and today, you can get a 1080p model for $25, the best price we’ve seen — just clip the coupon on the page and apply code YI4HOME9. 

Want to monitor an outdoor space? This weatherproof model with two-way audio support is also on sale for $64 with promo code YICAME69.

Yi offers an online cloud DVR service that will store seven days of motion detection footage (six second clips when it detects movement) for free, or more footage if you pay. That said, you can choose for forego the cloud service altogether, and just store your clips locally on a microSD card.


Anker Wireless Vertical Ergonomic Mouse | $17 | Amazon | AKMOUSE3
Anker Wired Vertical Ergonomic Mouse | $10 | Amazon | AKMOUSE4
Anker 2.4G Wireless Vertical Ergonomic Mouse | $14 | Amazon | LOVEAK78
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

When we asked you to nominate your choice for the very best work mouse, the Anker Ergonomic Mouse was one of your top three picks. And right now, there’s a coupon to bring it down to just $10.

Additionally, there are also discounts on its wireless cousins if you’re as wire-averse as I am. Make sure to copy and paste the coupon code at checkout to get the best price.


It should be a crime for any computer to ship with a spinning hard drive. Why manufacturers continue to do so, despite the dropping prices of SSDs, astonishes me. But, of course, you can correct this wrong-doing.

SSDs are more reliable and much, much faster than the traditional (see: antiquated) HDD. Both Crucial’s 2.5" and M.2 500GB SSDs are $58, and the smaller 240GB 2.5" SSD is the lowest we’ve ever seen at $34, so correct this manufacturer wrong right now.

You deserve better.


Aukey SoundTank Bluetooth Speaker | $21 | Amazon | Promo code KINJA2AK
Photo: Amazon

If you demand a lot out of your Bluetooth speakers, this discounted Aukey SoundTank might be just what you’re looking for.

Very few Bluetooth speakers can run for 30 hours on a charge, nevermind ones that cost $21. This model is also splash-proof, and features dual 5W drivers, meaning it should be loud enough for most occasions indoors or out. Just be sure to use promo code KINJA2AK at checkout to save a whopping $25.


Anker SoundBuds Slim+ Bluetooth Headphones | $22 | Amazon | Promo code SCHPSD66

Our readers voted Anker’s SoundBuds Slims as their favorite affordable Bluetooth headphones, but we may need a recount, as Anker recently released the upgraded SoundBuds Slim+, on sale for just $22 today with promo code SCHPSD66.

The biggest change from the original model is the inclusion of AptX encoding, which should improve sound quality with compatible devices. Anker also claims that waterproofing has been improved, though they’re both still rated as IPX5, so any change on that front is likely modest. One thing that hasn’t changed: the seven hour battery, which is excellent for earbuds of this size.


Your car is a great place for a wireless charger, but if you use GPS, audio streaming, and crank your screen to full brightness while you drive, a 5W Qi charger might not quite keep up with your device’s battery drain.

Enter Anker’s PowerWave, one of the first Qi car mounts to support 7.5W wireless charging for iPhones, the maximum possible speed. It also supports 10W charging for compatible Android phones, though that’s less rare. It’s down to an all-time low $30 with now with promo code ANKER551.

The only catch is that you’ll need a Quick Charge 3.0 charger to enable the 7.5W charging speeds (par for the course for these chargers, oddly enough), but this one from RAVPower is pretty affordable, and even has a $1 coupon available.


Hold on to your butts, gamers. This deal on 32" 144hz Monoprice monitors may be a contender for the deal of the week.

Both the curved and flat screen models use AMD FreeSync technology, swivel, rotate to a vertical orientation, and are VESA-mount compatible. Each display features a maximum resolution of 2560x1440 for under $300.

This price is at least $100 off what’s currently on Amazon.


NETGEAR 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Unmanaged Switch | $15 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

If your router doesn’t include enough ethernet ports for your liking, this 5-port gigabit switch from NETGEAR is a cheap and easy way to solve that. $15 is a match for the best price we’ve seen over the last year.


Aukey USB-C 2.5" Hard Drive/SSD Enclosure | $11 | Amazon | Promo code AUKEYB11

If you have any old hard drives or SSDs gathering dust, this $11 enclosure can turn it into a handy USB-C external drive. No tools are required: just pop in the drive, and plug it in.


TaoTronics Bluetooth Receiver/Transmitter | $23 | Amazon | Promo code 493GG6KN
Photo: Amazon

You know those fancy Bluetooth earbuds you love using so much? Surprise: they won’t work with your Nintendo Switch, or the seatback TV screen on a plane, or even your TV. But for just $23 (with promo code 493GG6KN), you can plug this Bluetooth dongle into any headphone jack, and connect to it with your favorite wireless headphones for wireless listening. It even has AptX codex support for lower latency, and can transmit to two pairs of headphones simultaneously for shared listening.

It also works as a Bluetooth receiver, so you can plug it into an old stereo system or car, and broadcast music from your phone over Bluetooth to speakers that otherwise wouldn’t be compatible.


Sonos Beam | $349 | Amazon
Sonos Playbar | $599 | Amazon
Sonos Sub | $599 | Amazon
Sonos Playbase | $599 | Amazon
Polk Audio MagniFi Max SR 5.1 Surround Sound Sound Bar | $399 | Amazon
VIZIO 3.1.2 Atmos Premium Home Theater Sound System | $700 | Amazon
VIZIO 5.1.4 Atmos Premium Home Theater Sound System | $900 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

It’s not surprising that Amazon would run a home theater audio sale with the Super Bowl now just two weeks away. But holy crap, we weren’t expecting so many great options.

Advertisement

Of course, we have to start with the Sonos deals. The new Beam sound bar is $50 off, while the Sonos Sub, the Playbase, and the larger Playbar sound bar are all $100 off. Even at full price, the Beam is arguably the best value in the Sonos lineup, so that’s where we’d recommend most people start. And of course, you can also pair any Sonos Play:1s or Ones with any of these products to use as satellite speakers.

But those aren’t the only home theater audio deals that Amazon’s running. For an all-time low $399, you can enjoy 5.1 surround sound with this easy-to-set-up Polk Audio sound bar system. The subwoofer and satellite speakers connect to the sound bar wirelessly (though you’ll have to plug them in for power), which means you won’t have to run any wires from the front of the room to the back.

Or you can go all out and upgrade to the future of audio: Dolby Atmos. Both of the Vizio systems in the sale use upward-firing drivers to bounce sound off of your ceiling, creating a truly immersive sound stage. The $700 model is a 3.1.2 system, with three forward-facing and two upward-facing drivers, and the $900 version includes two satellite speakers as well for 5.1.4 sound. They’re both $100 off, but if you ask me, the $900 model is a far better value.

VPNs have been in the news, and whether you want to get around video geoblocks, circumvent proxy filters, or just keep prying eyes out of your browsing data while using sketchy public Wi-Fi, reader-favorite Private Internet Access has a deal to fit your needs.

These deals are only for our readers, but we aren’t sure how long they’ll be available, so go ahead and sign up while you can.

Best Home Deals

Delsey Helium Aero 29" Roller Suitcase | $115 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you’re like me, you probably try to avoid checking a bag at all costs, up to and including wearing like four layers of clothes onto the plane. But every once in awhile, you just need a big-ass checked suitcase, and Delsey makes some great ones. This 29" roller can hold enough clothes for well over a week away, and its expandable, polycarbonate shell and built-in TSA lock will keep everything inside safe.

$115's the best price Amazon’s listed since last May, so you’ll have money left over to pay for the checked bag fees.


Zest Tea 20-Pack (Multiple Flavors) | $10 | Amazon | Clip coupon on page
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Have you ever sipped on a cup of tea and wished it were a little more... EXTREME? Right now, Amazon is offering a 20% off coupon on a bunch of highly caffeinated satchels of Zest Tea.

Advertisement

There’s 20 satchels in each order, which promise “as much caffeine as coffee,” or about 140 - 160 mg per cup. With the coupon, the price comes down to about $10 which is a few cents short of the best deal we’ve ever seen.

So stock up on such flavors as cinnamon apple, superberry samba, and pomegranate mojito.


ThermoWorks Smoke Meat Thermometer | $79 | ThermoWorks
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Meat smoking is so hot right now (but not too hot!), and ThermoWorks dual-probe Smoke thermometer is a great accessory to monitor your barbecue’s progress.

Advertisement

It includes a base unit with a large screen to show you the two probes’ temperature, plus a wireless lanyard so you can leave the grill while still keeping an eye on your temperature. And of course, you can set a min/max temperature for each probe, and get an audible alarm if the smoker needs your attention.

The Smoke sells for $99, but ThermoWorks just marked the charcoal color down to $79, for a limited time. That’s an extra $20 you can spend on brisket.


Starbucks Timor Mount Ramelau Ground Coffee | $11 | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

You could have that afternoon cup of coffee to get through the rest of your workday. Or you could buy these Starbucks coffee grounds instead — deals are as energizing as caffeine is, anyway. Brew up this Starbucks Timor Mount Ramelau Ground Coffee for just $11 at Amazon, and look forward to many a mug filled with its “mild herbal spice notes and a roasty-sweet finish.” Or maybe try mixing it up; our readers like this blend for cold brew, too, FYI.


DYMO Authentic LW Standard Shipping Labels | $9 | Amazon
DYMO LabelWriter Twin Turbo Label Printer and Scale | $163 | Amazon
DYMO Authentic Industrial Heat Shrink Tubes | $22 | Amazon | Clip the 40% off coupon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Labels are probably most useful in an office, what with billions of files to keep track of and mail to send, which is why a DYMO LabelWriter just makes sense. It allows you to easily print labels, featuring everything from plain text, to barcodes and graphics, straight from your computer. And right now, the DYMO LabelWriter 450 Twin Turbo, plus a bonus scale, is down to $163. Several varieties of labels are also on sale, so you’ll be more prepared than put everything in its place.


Tacklife Electric Arc LIghter | $7 | Amazon | Promo code XUHGBSFX

Electric arc lighters are so...hot right now. But this model from Tacklife is about the size of a USB flash drive, making it one of the smallest on the market. I own it myself, and it works great. Just $10 today with promo code XUHGBSFX.


Three Pounds of Chicken Wings For Life | Butcher Box
Photo: Atharva Tulsi ((Unsplash)

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 before 2/3, you’ll also get three pounds of organic chicken wings in every box for the life of your subscription, for no additional charge. Who doesn’t want a wing night every month forever?

Advertisement

Note: While the deal runs through 2/3, you’ll want to order by 1/28 for guaranteed delivery in time to eat the wings while you watch the Patriots lose.

The three pound wing 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.


August Third Generation Smart Lock | $100 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

August’s third generation Smart Lock lets you lock and unlock your door from using your phone, and you can get the silver model for just $100 today, just a dollar more than we saw on Black Friday.

Advertisement

Assuming you have your phone with you whenever you leave the house, an August Smart Lock-installed door will auto lock behind you and unlock as you approach. It’s especially useful because you don’t have to necessarily be home to grant or restrict access to people like dog walkers, maintenance workers, or other people who need to come into your house; just send them a guest key with the August app. And since it integrates with your existing deadbolt, you can continue using a physical key as well, if your phone ever dies.

Unlike previous August locks, this one doesn’t have Wi-Fi built in—it uses Bluetooth to talk to your phone—but you can add a Wi-Fi hub to your router to control it over the internet from anywhere. You can send guest keys without the bridge, but you can’t use Alexa or remotely lock or unlock the door.


Buy Any Two Jar Or Tumbler Candles, Get Two Free | Yankee Candle
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Yankee Candle often runs deals on specific sizes and types of candles, but today, if you buy any two jar or tumbler candles, you add two more of your choice to your cart for free. Any size, any scent; as long as they aren’t already discounted, they’re fair game. You can mix and match different sizes too, but just note that the two cheapest candles are the ones you’ll get for free.


Dyson vacuums dominate our Co-Op for best vacuum, but they’re often pricey. Today’s deals, though, removes that barrier. The second-generation, Dyson Ball Multi Floor is down to $180 if you’re okay with a refurbished model.

Advertisement

Just remember that like all Gold Box deals, this price is only available today, or until sold out.

Update: If you have a Rakuten account (it’s easy to make one, btw), you can snag an even better deal: the Dyson V6 for just $170 with the promo code HOME20. Just a heads up, you can’t use a promo code with guest checkout.


Habor XL Air Fryer | $56 | Amazon | Clip the $4 coupon and use code FDUWMZ36

Fried food is delicious. Fried food is terrible for you. These are the immutable laws of the universe, cruel as they might be. But if you just can’t kick the craving for a crisp french fry, give this $56 (with $4 clippable coupon and code FDUWMZ36) Habor air fryer a try. It uses hot air and convection, as opposed to oil, to achieve perfectly crispy results, and its 3.8 qt. capacity means you can cook enough french fries, fried pickles, or chicken wings for the entire family.

Just remember to clean it!


Lifetime 55 Qt. Cooler | $97 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

It might not have the name recognition or cool factor of a YETI, but this 55 quart Lifetime cooler is a lot cheaper at just $97 today, and keeps ice frozen for up to seven days. It just met that threshold in this YouTube test, even when it was left outside in the hot sun. Now grab this thing and go spend a week outside somewhere before the dreaded heat of summer returns.
