Today’s Best Tech Deals

Let’s get meshy. Asus’s mesh routers are great, and this three-pack has never been cheaper.

Here’s how they work: multiple nodes, or access points, work together to blanket your home in signal. Better still, their glossy design encourages people to keep them outside of closets and drawers and in plain view to ensure unencumbered signal.

This current price is about $40 off its normal price. So, if you’re wondering what the whole mesh network fad is all about, this deal isn’t a bad place to start.


RAVPower 10000mAh USB-C PD Battery Pack | $24 | Amazon | Clip the $2 coupon and use code QSMXCUZR
Photo: Amazon

The first USB-C battery packs were all gigantic things that were designed for situations like keeping a laptop powered up during a long flight, and indeed, those are great!

But lately, we’ve seen a proliferation of smaller, less powerful, and significantly cheaper USB-C PD packs like this one from RAVPower, just $24 today after clipping the $2 coupon and using code QSMXCUZR. Its 18W USB-C port can’t charge a MacBook at full speed (though it can usually maintain its current battery level as long as you aren’t playing games or exporting video), but it’s enough power to charge a Nintendo Switch while you play Zelda at 40,000 feet, or your iPhone at the fastest possible speed before you land (with a compatible Lightning cable). For a lot of us, that’s exactly what we need out of this sort of thing.


Mpow EG3 7.1 Gaming Headset | $19 | Amazon | Promo code MPOWEG3A

Will Mpow’s EG3 gaming headset match the sound quality of a HyperX Cloud? Of course not. Do you want fancy LED lights? Try something from Razer. But if you’re on a budget and want to experience 7.1 surround sound (which really helps in games like Fortnite and PUBG), you can’t beat $19. Just use promo code MPOWEG3A at checkout to get the deal.


Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter | $399 | Amazon

Why pay for an electric scooter by the minute when you can just buy one outright for the best price ever? The Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter can cruise at 15+ mph for over 18 miles, depending on conditions, and includes some nice quality-of-life features like a built-in headlight and taillight, and a regenerative braking system to extend your range.

At an all-time low $399, it’s a better long term investment than the plague of electric scooters that befell our cities over the past year. Just don’t leave it in the middle of the damn sidewalk, please.


Amazon makes its own wireless headphones now, which shouldn’t be too surprising, and you can try them out for an all-time low $15 right now.

That’s a solid price for any Bluetooth earbuds, but particularly so considering that these boast an impressive 10 hours of battery life, and come with three sizes of tips and four sizes of wings to help you find the perfect fit. Even if you already have a set of wireless headphones that you like, it’s never a bad idea to keep a spare set in your luggage or gym bag in case you ever forget your primary pair.

Today’s Best Home Deals

EufyCam Add-On Camera | $140 | Amazon | Promo code EUFYAD22
2-Camera EufyCam Starter Kit | $260 | Amazon | Clip the $20 coupon and use code EUFYCA88
3-Camera EufyCam Starter Kit | $370 | Amazon | Promo code EUFYCM55
eufy Security Entry Sensor | $22 | Amazon | Promo code EUFYCM99
Photo: Amazon

Anker’s EufyCam home security system was a Kickstarter sensation, raising over $3,000,000. And now that the new version is available to all, you can get the 2-camera starter kit for $260 with a $20 coupon plus promo code EUFYCA88, the 3-camera kit for $370 with code EUFYCM55, a single add-on camera for $140 with code EUFYAD22, or the new entry sensor for doors and windows for $22 with code EUFYCM99.

These 1080p cameras are water resistant, support two-way intercom, include an audible alarm if someone tries to steal them, and most importantly, they run for a full year on a single battery charge, so you can set them up and forget about them.

Like most of these security systems, you can pay a nominal fee ($2.99 per camera) for Anker’s cloud DVR service, but the base station also comes with a 16GB microSD card that can save your recordings locally as well. Either way, you’ll still be able to get motion alerts and check in live from your phone for free.

Note: Apple announced that Eufy would support its new HomeKit-enabled cloud DVR service, but we’ve been told that this will require new hardware.


6-Pack 11.5" x 11.5" Terracotta Tiles | $13 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

If your outdoor space consists of a drab, uninspired concrete slab patio or apartment balcony, and you don’t have the time, money, and/or permission from your landlord to do anything about it, I have some good news.

Advertisement

These terracotta-looking tiles (they’re actually plastic) are down to their best price since January, lock into place and sit on top of your existing patio, and allow for adequate drainage without making any permanent changes to your patio. They’re nearly a square foot each, and cost $13 for six, so buy as many packs as you think you’ll need before the sun sets on this deal.

Call me crazy, but all the string lights and tiki torches in the world won’t do as much to improve your patio as these.


15-Pack Reusable Nylon Produce Bags | $10 | Amazon | Clip the 5% coupon
Photo: Amazon

You’ve probably stocked up on reusable grocery bags by now, but what about the thin plastic produce bags that you grab at the store to hold your fruits and vegetables?

Turns out, you can get reusable sacks for those too, and this set of 15 is down to just $10 today after you clip the 5% coupon (the $11 list price is the best in a few months to begin with). They’re made from nylon, but transparent enough that your checkout attendant won’t have to open them to see what’s inside. And if you don’t need all 15 for shopping, they can be used for holding just about anything. So go ahead, do Mother Earth a solid.


2-Pack WALI Wall Outlet Shelf | $10 | Amazon | Use Code 8IP4HP94

Why should your smart speaker, toothbrush, candles, and potted plants take up precious counter space when you can just add a shelf to a power outlet? WALI installs on any standard power receptacle, holds 10 pounds, and you can get two of them for $10 with promo code 8IP4HP94 today.


Thermapen Mk4 | $84 | ThermoWorks
Photo: ThermoWorks

Outdoor barbecues will be back before you know it, and you can be ready for that (and all of your other cooking needs) with a 15% discount on the best kitchen thermometer money can buy: the Thermapen Mk4.

You guys love the Thermapen because it displays the temperature in 2 - 3 seconds, has a 3,000 hour battery life, is waterproof, and is accurate within 0.7°F. Step back into the kitchen in just about any nice restaurant, and you’ll probably see some ThermoWorks gear in use.

Here are just a few readers gushing over it:

Thermapen Classic (or really any of the Thermapens). Bar none the best thermometer for cooking I have ever bought — accept no substitutes.

Somewhat expensive at ~$70-$120 range, but I’ve been using mine for years and years, and it still gives me an accurate reading in less than three seconds. Well, well worth the price. Especially excellent for the grill. - theburners

Without a doubt. No other thermometer comes close. I’ve said it before on Kinja that the Thermapen is the best piece of kitchen equipment I’ve ever bought. - the-return-of-samba00

This model doesn’t see significant discounts very often, and even then, deals on every available color are even rarer.


Tosot Gold Box | Amazon

Ah, I can’t wait until my apartment is a hot, humid disaster... said no one, ever. Luckily, Amazon’s got you covered. Today’s Gold Box includes discounts Tosot dehumidifiers that are perfect for areas of your home without great ventilation. Choose from 30, 50, and 70 pint units starting at $155.

Just note that this is a Gold Box deal, so grab one before the prices dry up.

Late last year, we were blown away by Blanc’s heated thermal shirt which actually felt like a regular shirt. Now, the company’s back with a less eye-popping, but no less well-made second act.

The Blanc Uinta Daypack 25 aims to combine the minimalism of a day pack with the features of a heavier backpack. Like a day pack, it’s still primarily One Big Pocket inside, and made from a lightweight ripstop nylon that allows the whole thing to pack down to about the size of a 6" sub. In shape and in function, this is a lightweight day bag, like many you’ve seen before.

GIF: Kickstarter

But the bag also steals features from more technical backpacks like YKK zippers to ensure the whole thing is rain-proof, a water bladder system with hose routing, anti-theft pockets for important travel documents, and a side-access zipper that gives us flash backs to the Peak Design Travel Bag. And while it’s not structured enough to provide the support of a “real” backpack, it does include sternum straps to take a little pressure off your shoulders.

The Uinta just went up on Kickstarter, with preorders starting at $39. Expected shipping in September.


Makita Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Summer is basically here, and if you have any home improvement projects on the horizon, today’s Makita Gold Box on Amazon may have a tool deal for you. Save big on an electric chain saw, cordless drills, a polisher/sander, a bit set and more, starting at just $4.

But hurry and stock your toolbox; this deal is only for today. (I mean, not for nothing but these would make awesome Father’s Day gifts.)


Tide 100 oz./64 Load Laundry Detergent | $10 | Amazon | Clip the $2 coupon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

You need laundry detergent anyway, so you might as well get it delivered to your house for cheap. This 100 oz. (64 load) bottle of Tide is already affordably priced at $12 with Prime shipping, and a $2 coupon makes it even cheaper. That’s about as good a deal as you’ll ever see on Tide.


Bug-A-Salt 2.0 Fly Gun | $36 | Amazon
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

If you spend most of your summer cowering away from bugs, cower no longer. Sometimes, bug spray just doesn’t cut it when flying bugs descend upon us. If you want to tell them to back the hell off, this Bug-A-Salt 2.0 Fly Gun is a couple of bucks off. The 2.0 version of this gun has greater accuracy than the previous model and uses less salt per shot, giving you about 80 shots before you need to reload. If your dad is always grumbling about flies and mosquitos, this would be a great gag (but useful) gift for Father’s Day.

Today’s Best Lifestyle Deals

Does your skin turn a nice tomato red after only five minutes of sun exposure? You better stock up on some sunscreen now before you’re assaulted by UV rays all summer long. Thankfully, a cult-favorite Japanese sunscreen is currently on sale.

You can get an extra large bottle (1.7x the normal size) of Biore UV Watery Essence for $14 on Amazon right now, or a regular sized bottle for $10. The larger bottle is a slightly better price per ounce, but they’re both really good deals compared to their normal price points. The 50 SPF sunscreen is pretty literal to its name and is said to feel like water when applied to your skin.

Here’s what Shep McAllister had to say about it on The Inventory:

As far as sunscreen goes, the only thing I really knew about it was that I didn’t like it, and given the option, I would usually just opt to stay indoors until the UV index fell to around 3 or 4, or until someone invented a sunscreen pill, whichever came first.

That all changed when my wife introduced me to Biore Watery Essence sunscreen. It’s SPF 50 (the bare minimum for my needs, thank you very much), waterproof for 80 minutes, and feels like rubbing water on your skin. Cool to the touch, it rubs in effortlessly, and doesn’t come with the unpleasant smell or zincy stickiness of pretty much every other sunscreen I’ve used. About two minutes after putting it on, I’ve usually completely forgotten about it, which is a compliment of the highest order.

RTIC Soft Pack 30 | $110 | Amazon
RTIC 20 | $135 | Amazon
RTIC 45 | $195 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

We’re approaching peak picnic/camping/beach trip season, and if you don’t own a cooler that you really like, some of our readers’ favorites are on sale right now on Amazon.

You can save today on both soft and hard RTIC coolers, both in multiple sizes. The Soft Packs are actually our readers’ favorite coolers, and they really do keep ice frozen for days. Purely for ergonomic reasons, I prefer them to the hard coolers, but the hard ones include a drain to let out excess water, which is a nice plus.

Though Amazon doesn’t actually show them as discounted, all three soft packs are down to their best prices in at least 11 months. The 20-can model usually costs about $120-$130, and the 30-can model hovers between $140 and $165.

The 20 and 45-can hard coolers both fluctuate in price a little more, and both were a few bucks cheaper briefly in February, but these are both still very good prices, historically.


Good American Flash Sale | Nordstrom Rack

We’re not trying to say that it’s your patriotic duty to take advantage of this deal on Good American jeans. But if you’re in the market for some denim, it’s worth heading over to Nordstrom Rack to check out this sale.

A good variety of both regular and plus-size styles from the Khloé Kardashian-founded brand are around 60% off, plus several of the reality star’s signature bodysuits. I’ve actually worn a few pairs of the jeans — most styles feature a good amount of stretch and an extra high rise — which I found to be above average in terms of comfort and shockingly flattering. They’re not necessarily the sturdiest denim around, but they look and feel pretty damn good (American — sorry, had to).
