Today’s Best Tech Deals

Dell 34-Inch Ultra-WIde LED Monitor | $509 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Curved TVs might be a little dumb, but curved, ultra-wide computer monitors actually make some sense, because you actually sit close enough to them for the curve to wrap around your periphery.

Right now you can pick up this Dell 34-Inch Ultra-WIde LED monitor for just $509, or a few bucks off its lowest price.

This type of monitor enables you to have a ton of windows open at the same time without the unsightly gap in between like you’d find in dual monitor setups. Sure, it costs more to start off but, for some, the seamless nature of it is worth it.

This 3440x1440 (21:9) monitor refreshes at 60hz and 99% sRGB, which is awesome for editing photos and videos.

I’m not sure if this is a deal for us, or a deal for Equifax, but it’s definitely a deal for someone (lawyers). The claims process just opened following a class action settlement on behalf of the 147 million Americans whose data was exposed in the massive 2017 Equifax data breach. If your data was compromised, even if you haven’t (yet) had your identity stolen, you can get at least $125 cash now, and it only takes a minute.

Advertisement

To find out if you’re eligible, just visit this page (or fill out and mail this form if you were under 18 at the time of the breach), and enter your name and the last six digits of your social security number. If you were impacted, you’ll be able to provide your contact info, and choose whether you want $125 cash or 10 years of free credit monitoring. Technically, you’re only supposed to claim the $125 if you have credit monitoring from elsewhere, but Credit Karma (which I’ve personally used for years) offers it for free.

If you actually spent time or lost money dealing with the effects of the hack, you’ll also be able to submit documentation to be reimbursed for both, in addition to your $125 flat fee, up to a maximum $20,000.

Advertisement

A quick poll of our team (all of whom except Tercius were eligible for the payment, which he’s devastated about) revealed that most of us would rather have the $125 than to have not been hacked in the first place, which is probably very wrongheaded of us. Let us know what you think in the comments!


Aukey USB Wall Charger | $6 | Amazon | Use code YIAZF27X
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

You know the little charging brick that came with your phone? Throw it out, and spend $6 on this replacement from Aukey (with code YIAZF27X). It’s only slightly larger than Apple’s standard iPhone charger, but it includes two ports, folding prongs, and 2.4A of current (shared between the ports) to charge your devices faster.

Compared to similar-sized USB-C chargers like Anker’s PowerPort Atom, it’s a little dated at this point, but at $6, it doesn’t really matter.

Monoprice 5.1 Channel Home Theater Satellite Speakers And Subwoofer | $68 | Amazon | Clip the $29 coupon
Graphic: Shep McAllister
Advertisement

Sound bars have largely taken over the home theater audio industry, but if you prefer to set things up the old fashioned way, you’d be hard pressed to find a better deal on a 5.1 speaker set than this. Just $68 gets you all of the speakers you need from Monoprice, though you’ll need to find an receiver to control them.

Clip the $29 coupon on the product page to see the discount at checkout.

Vizio 5.1.4 Dolby Atmos Sound Bar | $700 | Amazon
Graphic: Amazon
Advertisement

While 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound involves placing speakers around your room on a single plane, the concept behind Dolby Atmos is to give audio an element of height. If you don’t want to install speakers in your ceiling though, this Vizio system is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to pull off the effect.

Advertisement

At first glance, this looks like a 5.1 system similar to Vizio’s excellent sound bars. The main bar at the front of the room carries three channels, the two satellite speakers (truly wireless, in this case) provide your rear channels, and the wireless subwoofer handles the bass. But this being an Atmos-certified 5.1.4 system, it also includes four speakers (two built into the sound bar, and one in each of the satellites) that face upwards to bounce the Atmos channels off your ceiling, and back into your ears.

Advertisement

The effect won’t be quite as convincing as true ceiling-mounted speakers, but you won’t do better for this price. Gizmodo covered a similar Vizio system (a 5.1.2 version), and came away impressed. This model normally sells for $1000, but today on Amazon, it’s $300 off, matching an all-time low (which wasn’t available for long). Amazingly, that’s only $100 more than the price of the 3.1.2 version of the same system, which doesn’t include the satellite speakers.

Tyger Multifunction Shovel | $71 | Amazon
Graphic: Amazon

Most multitools are glorified pocket knives that you can slip into your pants. This multitool is, uh, a shovel.

But it’s more than just a shovel, of course. It’s also a whistle, a fire starter, a bottle opener, a knife, a hacksaw, a screwdriver, an ice pick, a wire cutter, an axe, a hammer, a ruler, a hoe (for your emergency farming needs), and more. It’s designed to collapse down to fit in the trunk of your car, and who knows, it could come in handy in the event of an emergency. Will you remember that the shovel in your backseat can also whistle for help if you find yourself stranded in the back country? I sure hope so!

Normally $89, it’s down to just $71 in today’s Amazon Gold Box, so get the deal before the end of the day, when it’ll be dead and buried.

OXO Good Grips Compact Hideaway Toilet Brush | $13 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Toilet brushes are an unfortunate necessity, but in the grand scheme of things, they’re a fine tradeoff in exchange for the miracles of indoor plumbing.

But OXO (unsurprisingly) makes one of the less gross-seeming options out there, and you can get the mint color of their Hideaway toilet brush for $13 today, down from the usual $16.

3-Pack Kasa Smart Light Switch | $60 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister
Advertisement

If your home features a lot of built-in lights controlled by a relatively small number of light switches, it’ll probably be cheaper and easier to make them “smart” by replacing your switches, rather than your bulbs.

Advertisement

That’s especially true today, since you can get a three-pack of TP-Link Kasa smart light switches for $60, matching an all-time low. Just swap these in for your existing switches, and you’ll be able to control all the lights on the switch with your phone or your favorite voice assistant. And yes, you can still use it like a regular light switch too, so you don’t have to shout at Alexa to turn on the lights when you walk through the front door (but you can if you enjoy doing that).

Kyoku Daimyo 8.5” Damascus Steel Kiritsuke Knife | $78 | Amazon | Promo code KYOKUBVX
Kyoku Daimyo 7” Damascus Steel Santoku Knife | $80 | Amazon | Promo code KYOKUDSZ
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.

Advertisement

Now, you can save $20 on two of the company’s other knives from the same line. The 8.5" Kiritsuke ($78 with promo code KYOKUBVX) is almost certainly longer than the blade you’re using now, which can help you chop more stuff at once, though I think most would find it a bit unwieldy. Instead, I’d recommend the 7" Santoku ($80 with promo code KYOKUDSZ) for most home chefs. That length of blade is long enough for almost anything you’re likely to do in the kitchen, and the curved, ergonomic blade makes it easy to rock back and forth when chopping herbs and vegetables.

Keep the party going even after the sunsets with these discounted, solar-powered Tiki torches. Use promo code KJTIKI to drop the price on the single unit, two-pack and four-pack down to just $22, $37 and $62 respectively. (For comparison’s sake, this single unit costs $30 on Amazon.)

These LED lamps will run for 8-10 hours and since these are solar-powered, there’s no need to plug them in or refill them with gas. Each lamp comes with one lantern holder, one female, male extension stakes and one ground stake.

If you’re thinking of going... um... protesting with them... the inventory has been replaced with something else. Please keep moving.

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, matching 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.

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.

Advertisement

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. If you get it and it doesn’t fit quite right, you can even go into an Indochino store to get it adjusted or remade for free, or even get reimbursed after taking it to another local tailor if you don’t have an Indochino store near you.

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.

Zappos sales don’t come around too often, but right now, this one-stop shoe shop is marking down over 85,000 items—I swear, that’s not a typo!—with their 20th Birthday Sale.

The best way to sort through a sale of this size is to filter by brand, and as you’ve probably guessed by now, select styles from a slew of your favorites—including Adidas, Nike, Cole Haan, Frye, Puma, Sam Edelman, and more—are among the great deals available. And don’t forget, while Zappos is shoe central, they do also have great deals on apparel, including Columbia outerwear, joggers, socks, and more.

We all have our movie blind spots. Those essential, genre-defining films that we’ve just never seen for one reason or another. My worst offenders are probably the Lord of the Rings and Godfather films.

But now, Pop Chart went and made a poster that can motivate you to cross those movies off your list, literally. Spanning 3' by 2' and featuring over 1,500 movies sorted by genre, each title has a three-section circle next to it that you pencil in to mark whether you loved the film, liked it, or merely just watched it. And in true Pop Chart fashion, it looks great too.

Advertisement

The poster starts shipping out on July 29, but you can preorder it today for 25% off with promo code TWOTHUMBSUP. That’ll bring the poster by itself down to $30, but you can also throw in some frames or poster rails to hang it, and the code will work on those as well.

Do you know someone who loves dinosaurs as much as my nephew Charlie does? Probably not, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t pick up the Jurassic Park 25th Anniversary Collection. This Blu-ray set includes Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park III, and Jurassic World. Sadly, no Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom but you do get a bunch of bonus features, and even digital copies.

$30 is the best price we’ve ever seen on this particular collection, so act fast before this deal is extinct. (Can you believe I’m single and don’t know if I don’t have any kids?)

Once upon a time, the NES Classic was so hard to find, that eBay resellers could sell them at a 2-3x markup.

Then, for a few blessed months, you could easily find them in stores, in stock, for MSRP. It was glorious.

But alas, if you missed that moment in time, they’re now really hard to find again. But lo and behold, you can actually buy a refurb from Nintendo’s eBay storefront for $50 right now, while supplies last. It’s not a huge discount, but it is the best deal we’ve ever seen on this thing.

You’ve probably seen an ad for Greats on Facebook or Instagram, and I’m happy to report that they aren’t a scam. I own a pair of Royales, and it almost feels like an insult to call them sneakers, because they’re as well made and sturdy and unapologetically leather as any dress shoes I’ve ever owned. And yet, they are sneakers. Really, really good sneakers.

Greats doesn’t run big sales very often, but right now, you can take advantage of their Summer Clearance event (men | women), with up to 70% off a pretty wide variety of styles. They only tend to do sales this big twice per year, and while your color and size choices are somewhat limited, but these are as, uh, great as Greats deals ever get.

It’s time to start planning your end-of-summer and fall getaways, and you can look to Alaska Airlines’ latest flight sale for inspiration, with roundtrip tickets starting at $87 from dozens of cities.

Even if Alaska Air isn’t your airline of choice, other airlines are price matching on many of the routes, so it’s worth looking to find where you can visit for cheap. Sale fares are based on availability, and run from August 27 - November 20, 2019 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.

If you still have any energy-guzzling incandescent bulbs lighting up your home, there’s really no reason not to upgrade to LED at this point. You can get a 6-pack of 60W equivalent bulbs (while using only 9W) from AmazonBasics for just $12, or a 16-pack of 100W equivalent bulbs (which use 15W of energy) for $32, both all-time low prices.

They aren’t smart, or dimmable, but they will pay for themselves thanks to their long lifespan and low energy usage.

Sometimes it doesn’t make sense to buy a whole 14-piece cookware set when you know you only need to replace a few pans. This Cuisinart 7-piece set is a good middle ground, and comes with all the basics like a skillet, two sauce pans, and a stock pot. Amazon just dropped it to $55, a new all-time low.

These pieces feature aluminum cores in the bases, though that aluminum doesn’t extend up the sidewalls like you’d see in more expensive cookware. But still, they should heat up quickly and evenly, and boast a solid 4.3 stars with over 600 reviews.

If, like me, you prefer to spend as much time as possible under a blanket at home, Gravel made a blanket that you can take with you anywhere.

The Layover Travel Blanket isn’t the only compact, nylon blanket out there, but it does seem to be one of the most thoughtfully designed. It has a leg pocket to keep your feet extra warm (and hide them if you take your shoes off on a plane)! It has a built-in storage pocket for your phone and keys! It packs down into an included sack that’s smaller than a pair of shoes! It weighs less than a pound! Plenty of people pack a travel pillow to stay comfortable on planes, trains, and busses, and Gravel’s betting that they can convince a lot of travelers to bring a blanket too.

Advertisement

The Layover is the third Kickstarter project from Gravel, the folks behind my personal favorite toiletry kit, and has already blown through its funding goal. You can cozy up to the blanket for an earlybird price (currently $99) by preordering, or save more by preordering two. They snap together to form a larger blanket, after all.

With a 1920x1080 resolution, 75Hz refresh rate and 4ms response time, it’s unlikely to wow any gamers or pixel peepers. But if you want a solid, super thin, HD monitor, this is the way to go.

It was refurbished by an Acer-approved vendor and comes with a 90 day manufacturer warranty. For comparison’s sake, this same monitor is selling for $90 on Amazon. So do yourself a favor, pick one up... or two and seriously upgrade your work set up.


RAVPower 60W 6-Port USB Charger With USB-C PD and Data Transfer | $31 | Amazon | Clip the $15 coupon

At a quick glance, this may look like any other USB charging hub, some of which you’ve likely already purchased. But RAVPower’s latest hub has a couple of tricks up its sleeve.

1) A 24W USB-C PD charging port. That’s not the most powerful USB-C port out there, but it’s enough to fast-charge phones and tablets, or even power things like small laptops and a Nintendo Switch in handheld mode.

2) Data transfer ports. The top-most port is designed for a flash drive or external hard drive, while the second one is meant for your phone or tablet. Just plug in your device, open RAVPower’s app, and you’ll be able to move files back and forth between your iOS or Android device and the external storage you plugged into the top port. It’s not the only device that can do this, but I’ve never seen it incorporated into a charging hub.

It’s not a feature that everyone needs, but if it’s one that interests you, just clip the $15 coupon to get it for $31.

Jabra Elite 85h Noise Canceling Headphones | $250 | Amazon

Jabra’s Elite 85h over-ears might not have the best noise cancelation on the market, but they do offer some unique features that you won’t find on alternatives from Sony or Bose.

From Gizmodo’s review:

I was surprised by how handy the SmartSound feature ended up being. It’s useful because it’s mindless. Most other noise-canceling headphones, including Jabra’s own Elite 65t, offer ways to adjust the power of the noise-canceling on the fly so that you can hear important stuff, like on-coming traffic in a busy urban setting. However, that typically involves remembering the setting exists and then tapping a button to activate it. SmartSound adjusts automatically, so when I come out of the subway, the noise-canceling chills out a bit and then I don’t get hit by a car. You can also adjust the noise-canceling settings with a button on the left ear cup.

Even cooler: they don’t have a power button. They use proximity sensors to turn on automatically when you put them over your ears. The same sensors will pause your music automatically when you take them off, AirPod style.

This being a Jabra product, they also excel when taking calls:

The headphones have a total of eight microphones, six of which are used to pick up your voice when you’re on the phone or talking to a voice assistant. According to my mom, I “sound like I’m standing right next to her” when I’m calling on the Jabra headphones. When I call with the Sonys, she sometimes says stuff like “You sound like you’re underwater.”

If those features trump pure noise cancelation strength in your hierarchy of headphone needs, the 85h is $50 off on Amazon today, bringing them down to $250, slightly cheaper than most deals we see on the high-end alternatives from Sony and Bose.

Razer’s popular BlackWidow TE Chroma V2 keyboard is one of the few high-end gaming keyboards out there without a number pad, and it’s cheaper than ever today on Amazon.

This keyboard has every accoutrement a gamer could possibly want, including 16.8 million color customizable backlighting, fully programmable keys, 10 key rollover, a magnetic wrist rest, and a two year warranty. You even get to choose from three different types of key switches, though you should obviously get the obnoxious, clicky ones. The BlackWidow line has long been a reader favorite, and this model is the cream of the crop, especially if you prefer a keyboard with a smaller footprint.

Today’s $100 price (valid on all three versions) is up to $40 less than usual, and an all-time low.

Trew might be best known for its merino wool, but don’t sleep on their Pack Jack raincoat.

Made from a soft-feel ripstop that keeps the wind and water out while still feeling breathable, the Pack Jack’s most notable feature is probably its built-in fanny pack. When you aren’t wearing the jacket, the whole thing packs up inside the pack. And when you are, it provides extra water-resistant storage for your gear.

3-Pack Nonstick Copper Grill Mats | $8 | Amazon | Promo code UD37VWYN

Grill grates aren’t always the best surface for cooking foods on the grill. Not only can small bits of food fall through them, they’re also probably gross (unless you follow Jolie Kerr’s advice, of course).

That’s where these nonstick copper grill mats come in. You lay them across your grill (or oven), cook right on them, and rinse them off when you’re done. And unlike pans, they roll up when not in use to take up less space in your cabinets. Get a pack of three for $8 with promo code UD37VWYN, and spend the money you saved on more meat.

Dish racks are an important, necessary kitchen sink implement, but they take up so. much. freaking. space. If you don’t have countertops to spare, invest in this $20 roll-up rack, which fits over your sink when you need it and easily folds to store in a drawer or cabinet when you don’t. This particular model comes with dish and utensil holders, making it a handy addition to any tiny kitchen.

You shouldn’t have to use up a precious power outlet on something as small as a night light, and even if you wanted to, they’re usually not in the best position for helping you find the bathroom without stubbing your toe at night.

But these second generation Eufy night lights are battery powered, so you can stick them anywhere you want. And since they only turn on when they detect motion, you won’t have to replace the AAAs very often. A 3-pack normally costs $17, but this week on Amazon, you can pick them up for just $13.

Running to the pet store to pick up food every time you run out is never convenient. That’s why Chewy is such a lifesaver.

To get your discount, use the code 15CHEWY at checkout. To be eligible for this discount, you cannot have purchased Rx food or Rx meds through Chewy before.


Samsung 860 QVO 4TB 2.5 Inch SATA III SSD | $400 | Amazon

Samsung makes some of the best solid state drives around and this 4TB is currently marked down to $400, an all-time low. Moving from a traditional HDD to an SSDs is the best upgrade you can make for your computer, in terms of speed and reliability. But this model really shines in terms of capacity.

Advertisement

This 4TB model offers read speed up to 550MB/s and write speed up to 520MB/s, which is a little slower by SSD standards. So it’s best for DIY SSD-based network attached storage, or as a secondary drive.

To be frank, this drive is not for everyone. It’s more geared for professionals who need a ton of fast and reliable storage. If that sounds like you, this is $200 off its usual price.

No-brainer deal alert: Twitch Prime Members get $15 Amazon credit with the purchase of Gears of War 4, Starlink Battle for Atlas, Fallout 76, The Sims 4, and The Last of Us for...$15 (price shown at checkout). Even if you don’t own a console or PC, this is a big deal and an opportunity for what essentially ammounts to a free game..

Let me explain. If you’ve got Amazon Prime, you can sign up for Twitch Prime for free. And if you spend $10 on Gears of War 4, you’ll get $15 credit which if my math is right, gives you $5 more than you paid. And since Amazon credit is basically real money... well, y’know.



Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order promises to be a Metroid-y take on the Star Wars universe, and preorders are $9 off on Amazon today for both PS4 and Xbox One. Preorderers even get a few special in-game cosmetics:

I’m tempted just for the orange blade cover, honestly.

You won’t be charged until it ships in November, so you can always cancel later if it’s not the game you’re looking for.
