Today’s Best Tech Deals

Logitech Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Today’s Gold Box is discounting a number of Logitech peripherals for work and play, today only. Inside, you’ll find a lot of mechanical keyboards, headphones, speakers, a webcam and work and gaming mice, including the Logitech G703, one of the most used mice in the Overwatch League.

One of the best work mice you can buy? It’s here, too. A 7.1 surround gaming headset for $30? Yes please. A complete surround sound speaker system? Why not?

For all the deals though, be sure to head over to Amazon. Just be warned, like all Gold Box deals, these prices will only stick around until the end of the day.


RAVPower 5,000mAh Battery Pack | $11 | Amazon | Clip the $2 coupon and use code KINJA652

You probably have a big-ass battery pack that can keep your phone charged for days, and that’s great! But you should also own one that can fit in your pocket, and this 5,000mAh model from RAVPower fits the bill.

Clip the $2 coupon and use promo code KINJA652 at checkout to get it for $11, which is a great price for a full phone charge whenever you need it.


Sonos Big Game Sale | Sonos
Screenshot: Sonos

There were a lot of Sonos deals around the holidays, but if you missed out on those, their Super Bowl sale could be your last chance to save for quite some time.

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 in a surround sound setup.


CubeFit TerraMat | $70 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

With the advent of affordable monitor risers, it’s never been easier to become a part-time or full-time standing desk user, but it’s important not to skimp on the anti-fatigue mat when you decide to make the transition.

Most of these mats are flat slabs of foam, and that’s better than nothing. But what if you could do more with your feet than just balance on them? That’s the idea behind TerraMat, which is essentially a fidget toy for your feet. In the middle, you can stand on it like a normal mat. But off to the sides, you’ll find massage mounds. On the front, a balance bar and “pressure peaks.” On the back, there’s a power wedge to stretch your calves. Surrounding it all is a support track to help you stretch your hip flexors. Basically, it gives your feet things to do while the rest of your body is busy filling out spreadsheets or whatever.

Amazon’s selling the mat for an all-time low of $70 right now, or $20 less than usual.


Refurb UE Boom 2 | $60 | Woot
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

The UE Boom 2 is the waterproof sequel for one of the best Bluetooth speakers of all time, and Woot’s marked down the Limited Edition version to $60 today, the best price we’ve ever seen (though it was briefly down to $64 new around Black Friday last year).


Seagate Backup Plus Slim 1TB | $45 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Are you backing up your files? No. Buy an external hard drive.

Running out of space on your Xbox One or PS4? Buy an external hard drive.

Have $45? Buy an external hard drive.

Today’s Best Home Deals

Instant Pot IP DUO Plus 6 Qt. | $80 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you keep telling yourself you should buy an Instant Pot, today’s the day to pull the trigger, as the 6 qt. Plus model is on sale for a whopping $50 less than usual, today only.

In addition to pressure cooking (which is a miracle), this is also our readers’ favorite slow cooker, and one of their favorite rice cookers too. It’s not the right cooking tool for every job, but it’s remarkably versatile, and cooks foods faster than you can even imagine. I’ve thrown rock solid frozen chicken breasts in there, and had pull-apart tender chicken 20 minutes later.

Today’s deal is the best price we’ve ever seen, and if you have Prime and order soon, you should have it in time for cooking snacks on Super Bowl Sunday.


6-Pack Scotch Heavy Duty Packing Tape | $9 | Amazon | Use Subscribe & Save for 15% off
Graphic: Shep McAllister

There are few things more frustrating than having to mail a package, and realizing you’re out of packing tape. But order this six-pack of Scotch tape rolls and dispensers, and that nightmare scenario won’t come to pass for a good long while.

The $10 list price isn’t all that unusual, but the automatic 15% discount for using Subscribe & Save is. Just be sure to cancel after your first shipment if you don’t want to inundated with adhesive.


Starbucks Doubleshot Espresso 12-Pack | $12 | Amazon | With Subscribe & Save and 15% coupon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Get caffeinated with this 15% off coupon on 12 packs of Starbucks Doubleshot espresso drinks. This time around, the deal’s only available on the Espresso + Cream flavor, but you can’t beat ~$1 per can.

You’ll have to use Subscribe & Save to get the deal, so just be sure to cancel your subscription after the first order ships if you don’t want more.


Planters Nuts Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Save on Planters cans, Cheeze Balls, and Corn Nuts for your upcoming Super Bowl viewing party, courtesy of today’s Gold Box.

Of course, snacks aren’t just for the big game. Keep a jar at on desk for midday healthy-ish snacking purposes, or take some snacks on that hike you’ll need after this stupid, awful storm. As with all Gold Box deals, this’ll only last until the end of the day, so just go nuts.


Travelwise Packing Cube Set | $18 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

They aren’t double sided, sadly, but these TravelWise packing cubes are actually Amazon’s top sellers, boasting a 4.6 star average from over 2,000 customers, and you can save 20% on the color of your choice today by clipping the coupon.

I know what you’re thinking...luggage for your luggage? But trust me when I say that they make packing easier by compressing and organizing your clothes, and they make it a lot easier to unpack when you arrive at your destination.


20% Off Toys | Chewy
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Playtime for your pet just got more exciting with this sale from Chewy. Take a bite out of 20% off hundreds of toys, from plushes and ropes, to dog bones to cat scratchers. But these prices won’t be making tails wag for long. Ready? Go get it, boy!


299 Piece First Aid Kit | $12 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

A first aid kit is one of those things you should probably keep in your glove box, and you should definitely have at home, and at $12 for 299 pieces, there’s no excuse not to be prepared for minor accidents.

It includes bandages, gauze, medicines, an instant cold pack, and more, all tucked away in a refillable soft pack. The only thing it’s missing is kisses from mom to make the boo boo feel better.


Save 25% on Valentine’s Day Flowers | 1800Flowers | Promo code LOVEEARLY
Image: 1800Flowers

Update: Today’s the last day to take advantage of this offer, so get those flower orders in now.

Valentine’s Day is officially one month 14 days out, which means it’s time to start planning something special for the special someone. If you’re smart, you’ll consider getting the object of your affection a bouquet of flowers, because flowers are classic, easy to procure, and — thanks to this deal from 1800Flowers — not too pricey.

For a limited time, if you order select Valentine’s Day flowers to be delivered sometime between February 9 and 14, 1800 Flowers will give you 25% off. Just use promo code LOVEEARLY and get your S.O. anything from a classic bouquet of roses or a pretty lily arrangement, to a not-so-traditional heart-shaped bamboo plant or very extra heart-shaped rose wreath. Meanwhile, I personally am feeling emotional about this puppy made out of carnations, and also this gift basket filled with chocolate. (Single men of New York City, are you listening?!)


Halter ED-257 Adjustable Standing Desk (Cherry) | $80 | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Choosing to invest in a standing desk is a big commitment, so don’t commit. Instead, become a fair-weather desk stander with the Halter ED-257, now down to the shockingly low price of $80 (in the cherry wood color only). This desk comes pre-assembled; all you have to do is place it atop your existing workspace, and switch off between sitting and standing to your heart’s (and your legs’) content. But this isn’t a standing offer. In fact, it likely won’t be up for long.

And while you’re at it, treat your feet to this cool standing desk mat, also on sale.



Sherpa Heated Blanket | $48 | Amazon
Velvet Plush Heated Blanket | $55 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

I do not live in the midwest or the mid-Atlantic, but if I did, I would be spending my entire day under one of these heated blankets, conveniently on sale today at Amazon.

My advice: get the more expensive one. It’s only a few bucks more, but it’s a lot larger than the sherpa blanket, and has 10 different heat settings instead of three. That’s not a big deal today, when the only setting that matters is “maximum,” but you’ll be glad to have more options later.


Today’s Best Lifestyle Deals

End of Season Sale | Sorel
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Even though there are record low temps across the country right now, Sorel is saying it’s the end of the season — whatever you say, Sorel. Still, you can take advantage of the boot brand’s rush to declare that winter’s over; right now, select items are marked down by up to 40% for their End of Season Sale, meaning it’s the best time to buy boots that will certainly keep your toes feeling toasty in these tundra-like conditions.


$20 Polos | Original Penguin
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Update: This deal is back on select polos. The page now has a lot of $25 and $30 options mixed in, but there are still a lot of $20 shirts.

No guy’s closet is complete without a handful of good polo shirts, and Original Penguin has dozens of styles to fit any mood. Normally priced at $55-$69, the whole lot of them have been marked down to $20 for a limited time, with free shipping if you log into a free account. Over 50 different styles are included, so get some for every season.


That aerobic platform you use at the gym? You can have one in your own home for less than you might think. This circuit sized version of The Step is down to $33 today, and the health club size is on sale for $60.

Both include four removable riser feet (and you can buy more on sale for the health club version) that adjust the height of the step, and thus, the intensity of your workouts. It’s a simple concept, but a versatile one, and these are among the most popular options you can buy.


Extra 30% Off Select Sale Items | Kate Spade | Promo Code BRRR

We’ve got a sale that will make you get out your wallet...and ditch it for something newer and cuter. The pocketbook purveyors at Kate Spade want to hook you up with new handbags, wallets, clothing, jewelry and other accessories this season, so they’re taking an extra 30% off already marked down sale items. Use promo code BRRR to take advantage of this designer deal.


SPANX Flash Sale | Nordstrom Rack
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

SPANX pretty much has the market on shapewear cornered, and they’re not exactly cheap. So if you feel like that’s something you want, head over to Nordstrom Rack. The selection currently on sale includes SPANX of all shapes and sizes — everything from bike shorts, tanks, and slips to bras and briefs — so you can probably find the perfect undergarments for any outfit you’ve got.


AuraGlow Teeth Whitening Kit | $43 | Amazon | Clip the $5 off coupon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Full disclosure: You will look kind of goofy when you use this AuraGlow Teeth Whitening Kit. It’s worth it though, because right now, you can bring one home for just $43, after clipping the $5 off coupon. Included in the set is two syringes of whitening gel, plus an LED light that speeds up the whitening process, in addition to a mouth tray and case. Yes, the light makes you look like a duck, or just an adult sucking on a really big pacifier. But hey, no one said the ordeal of getting whiter teeth would be pretty.


Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick | $12 | Sephora
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Bite Beauty’s Amuse Bouche line is a bonafide cult favorite, and right now, the brand’s Liquified Lipstick, normally $24, is on sale for just $12. Available in 28 shades, this liquid lipstick delivers in terms of pigment and moisture — unlike other liquid formulas that start off smooth before drying like shrink wrap on your lips. The Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick instead leaves behind a satiny finish, thanks to an ultra hydrating combo of monoi butter and coconut oil. Snag your must-have shades before this sale kisses us all goodbye.


MAC Shiny Pretty Things All Star Kit: Ruby Woo | $15 | Ulta
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

In the immortal, paraphrased words of Taylor Swift, this deal has that red lip classic thing that you like. MAC staples rarely go on sale, but today, that’s to Ulta’s holiday Beauty Blitz, a Christmas miracle has occurred: MAC’s Shiny Pretty Things All Star Kit, featuring a trio of coveted minis is down to just $15. Included in the kit is cult-favorite Ruby Woo lipstick, the most universally beloved true blue red lip shade, in a tiny size perfect for keeping in your purse, plus a mini Prep + Prime Fix+ and In Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash. This bundle would make for a nice gift (you can gift it to yourself, too, by the way), and size-wise, it has major benefits for travel.


Next time there’s a storm, you could spend $5 on a drugstore umbrella that will last approximately 40 seconds before disintegrating into flying shards of metal, or you could invest in a Blunt umbrella for 20% off with promo code JAN312019.

Blunt umbrellas feature rounded safety tips to avoid poking anyone in the eye, include a special pocket for a Tile device tracker, and most importantly, can withstand winds of up to 72 mph (in the case of the standard model, others are lower). For reference, tropical storms become hurricanes at 74 mph, so if your Blunt ever succumbs to the wind, you probably have bigger things to worry about. You can see it in action in the video above, which never fails to impress me.

This deal is valid on the full-sized Blunt Classic, the portable Blunt Metro, the large Blunt Golf, and the new Blunt Lite UV. The code should work for any color as long as it’s sold by BLUNT USA - it won’t work on listings sold by Amazon directly, or other third party sellers.





Today’s Best Media Deals

H&R Block Deluxe + State | $22 | Amazon
H&R Block Premium | $32 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Tax season is upon us, and if H&R Block’s Deluxe + State software is right for you (you can use this tool to find out), Amazon’s currently discounting it to just $22, or about half its usual $45 price tag.

Deluxe is great for homeowners and anyone with any sort of standard investment income, but you’ll want to step up to Premium if you rent out property or are self-employed. It’s also on sale for $32, an all-time low.

Whichever one you choose, you’ll be able to import your previous years’ taxes from TurboTax if you’re switching over, and you can elect to receive all or some of your refund in the form of an Amazon gift card, with a 5% bonus.


4 Months of Amazon Music Unlimited Free for Echo Owners | Amazon | New members only
Image: Amazon

Amazon Echo owners are already winners on Game Day this year: Right now, they can get four free months of Amazon Music Unlimited, in celebration of the Super Bowl. The deal only applies to new subscribers and will renew automatically, but if there were ever a reason to start streaming, it’s this sale.

Today’s Best Gaming Deals

Attention aspiring slumlords! Project Highrise: Architect’s Edition for PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch is down to just $20 today, half it’s normal price.

If you’re unfamiliar, this 2D tower-building simulation game is not unlike those Sim games we all played a decade ago. Pick it up and manage the needs and wants of tenants, tourists and businesses without the looming threat of a Special Counsel.

Originally released in 2016, this Architect’s Edition comes with the Las Vegas DLC and content packs for Miami Mall, Tokyo Towers, London and Berlin. We hear there were plans for a Moscow expansion... but that’s on hold for now.


Xbox One X NBA 2K19 Bundle | $371 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Update: This was a good deal at $399 yesterday, but now it’s down to $371!

In terms of sheer power and graphical capability, nothing can top the Xbox One X. So if you want to experience modern games like Red Dead Redemption 2 and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey in their full 4K HDR glory, you can save $129 today on a bundle that includes a copy of NBA 2K19, the best deal we’ve ever seen.

Deals You May Have Missed

Leather Apple Watch Bands | $8 | Amazon | Promo code FJ8YKZ7J. Should work on all sizes and colors.
Graphic: Shep McAllister

The lowkey best part about the Apple Watch is that it’s incredibly easy to change bands, and you can get extras for very cheap, as long as you aren’t buying them in the Apple Store. This leather band comes in a ton of different colors (choose from the dropdown), and is available in both 42/44mm and 38/40mm sizes. Get the strap of your choice for just $8 today with promo code FJ8YKZ7J.


There’s a big, important football game this Sunday, and if your piddly old TV just won’t cut it, there’s still time to upgrade to a 65" behemoth. Three different sets are on sale at Walmart right now from three solid manufacturers.

They’re all 4K, but the $598 Vizio is probably the best deal of the bunch thanks to its full array LED backlighting and built-in Chromecast. The Samsung is also tempthing if you’re drawn to curved TVs. Curved screens are kind of pointless at the distance you’d view a TV from, but there’s no doubt that they look cool.


Anker SoundCore Model Zero | $140 | Amazon | Clip the 30% coupon
Anker SoundCore Motion Q | $39 | Amazon | Clip the 15% coupon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Bluetooth speaker design has moved beyond basic rectangles of varying sizes of yesteryear: Anker’s new SoundCore speakers are as beautiful as they are functional, and two of them are on sale for the best prices we’ve seen today.

The SoundCore Motion Q ($39 after clipping the coupon) hides a pair of booming 8W drivers under its attractive, cylindrical linen shell, and its IPX7 water resistance means that it can take a soaking without any issues. You can even link two of them together into a stereo pair for room filling sound.

Or, for true audio nerds, the Soundcore Model Zero is Hi-Res audio certified, features SCANSPEAK-designed transducers, and even lets you fine-tune your EQ settings with a smartphone app. It’s also a work of art that’ll look great on your shelf, with a functional and gorgeously designed handle for when you want to take it on the go. Normally $200, the 30% clippable coupon will save you $60 today.


iPhone XS Smart Battery Case | $119 | Amazon
iPhone XR Smart Battery Case | $119 | Amazon
iPhone XS Max Smart Battery Case | $118 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Apple’s surprisingly terrific smart iPhone battery cases just made an unexpected comeback for the latest generation of iPhones, and the XS, XR, and XS Max cases are already $10-$11 off on Amazon.

While expensive, these cases should extend your battery life by about 75% without adding too much bulk, and they support all the latest features like wireless charging and USB-C PD fast charging with a USB-C to Lightning cable. And since it’s made by Apple and thus gets special treatment in software, you’ll be able to see both your device’s battery level and the case’s on your screen.


Slim Line Battery Organizer | $16 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

It’s...it’s beautiful. I’ve always kept my batteries loose and scattered across like three different drawers, but this organizer is surely better. It even has a built in battery tester to make it easier to know which batteries need to be recharged or recycled. At $16, it’s also never been cheaper.


Jelly Comb Cable Organizer | $9 | Amazon | Promo code MRTH3G5W

You probably keep a lot of charging cables, battery packs, hard drives, and other sundry tech accessories rattling around in your bag, and your collection is unlikely to shrink any time soon. But it’s easy to keep them organized and untangled with this $9 organizer (with promo code MRTH3G5W), which is big enough to hold an iPad mini-sized tablet, plus a ton of various accessories.


I’m not sure if you’re aware, but it’s cold as hell outside, and I can’t think of a better time for a weighted blanket. In addition to keeping you warm, a weighted blanket can work wonders for your anxiety, and several different models are on sale today for the first time since the holiday shopping season, including a beefy 20 pounder for just $80. Just be sure to note the promo codes.

Personally, I want my weighted blankets to be capable of breaking ribs, but the general recommendation is 10% of your body weight. Not to stress you out, but we wouldn’t expect this deal to last for long.


Now House by Jonathan Adler Sale | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Amazon’s ambitions in home decor are obvious, and now, they’ve even teamed up with renowned designer Jonathan Adler for an exclusive line of art, furniture, picture frames, and more. They’re eclectic, they ship for free with Prime, and right now, a bunch of them are on sale for the best prices ever. Many are already low in stock though, so don’t just sit around.


AmazonBasics Microwave With Alexa | $42 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

Don’t buy the AmazonBasics microwave because it has Alexa support. Buy it because at today’s $42 (down from the original $60), it’s one of the cheapest microwaves you can buy, period.

But once you have it, the Alexa commands (fed to it via any Alexa speaker, not included) are actually pretty cool. Instead of punching in numbers, you can just tell Alexa what you’re cooking or reheating, and Amazon’s AI will program the microwave for you. Want to add 30 seconds to your cook time while your fingers are covered in raw chicken juice? You can do it with your voice. The microwave still has regular buttons, and obviously, Alexa support isn’t a true necessity in a microwave, but it’s undoubtedly pretty cool, especially when you aren’t really paying for the privilege.


Chef’s Star 14-Piece Cookware Set | $100 | Amazon | Promo code XFHBKRR5

There are pans you bought at Walmart for $10 in college, and there are pans that cost as much as a mortgage payment. Quality-wise, these Chef’s Star pans should be a lot closer to the latter, while costing not much more than the former.

Constructed from 18/8 stainless steel and encapsulating an aluminum base, these pans should heat quickly and evenly on any type of stove (including induction). They aren’t nonstick, but that’s usually a good thing, as the steel cooking surface will result in superior fond (browning). And when you’re done with them, you can just throw them straight in the dishwasher.

$100 is a great price for seven pans, plus a bunch of lids, and even some steel utensils. Just use promo code XFHBKRR5, and don’t let this deal overcook.


Women’s Cashmere Sweaters | $40 | Uniqlo
Men’s Cashmere Sweaters | $50 | Uniqlo
Image: Uniqlo

Cashmere is the height of winter luxury — and often has a price tag to match — but right now, Uniqlo wants to swathe you in the soft, warm material for less. The retailer marking down their range of cashmere sweaters styles for men and women to $50 and $40, respectively — some of the lowest prices we’ve seen. Each pullover comes in a range of colors, so true cashmere snobs couldn’t be blamed for taking advantage of this sale to start a full-on cashmere collection. You deserve only the best, after all.


Nivea Luxury Men’s Gift Box | $15 | Amazon | Clip the 40% coupon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Nivea’s gift set is back for 2018, and even if you don’t want to give anyone on your shopping list a box of men’s grooming supplies, you might want to buy it for yourself. Just $15 (after clipping the 40% coupon) gets you two types of body wash, body lotion, lip balm, and shaving cream. We’re talking full-size products here here too, the good stuff. One might call it...a soap box.


30% Off Sitewide | Jigsaw Massage | Promo code KINJAJIGSAW
Photo: Jigsaw Massage

Jigsaw Massage is the exception to the expensive trend of at home massage therapy. By attaching to almost all T and U shank jigsaws, they avoideded creating a single use item, and instead made a clever attachment for a common tool, opening the door for at-home recovery to more athletes and those in chronic pain. Take an exclusive 30% off all bundles and heads with code KINJAJIGSAW.

The discount brings each individual head (all-purpose, deep tissue, and pin-point) to just $35 each, the set of three to $102, or the complete bundle (with a Black and Decker cordless pro) to $182. The nearest competition is around $200, but most go for $399+. And against the backdrop of routine, on-site physical and massage therapy, it’s incredibly cost effective.

I use mine plenty after long runs and speed work, and I like it both as an addition to, or in place of, foam rolling. But the most pleasant surprise of came when I decided to start blasting my back and neck after hours of poor posture in front of the computer. Code should auto-apply at checkout.


Warehouse Sale | Levi’s
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

This sale will have you feeling blue — in a good way — and saving some green. For a limited time, Levi’s is taking up to 75% off their already-discounted closeout styles for their Warehouse Sale. You have to enter your email in a popup to gain access to the deals, but believe you me, it’s worth it. So now’s the time to swath yourself and everyone you know in denim.


40% Off Men’s and Women’s Apparel | Express
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

A brutal cold snap isn’t usually something to celebrate, but Express begs to differ. The apparel retailer is using the frigid temperatures as an excuse to take 40% off sitewide for men and women. But like this weather, the Polar Vortex Sale won’t last forever, so snag the styles you want now.


Xbox One X NBA 2K19 Bundle | $399 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

In terms of sheer power and graphical capability, nothing can top the Xbox One X. So if you want to experience modern games like Red Dead Redemption 2 and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey in their full 4K HDR glory, you can save $100 today on a bundle that includes a copy of NBA 2K19, the best deal we’ve seen since Black Friday.


Preorder Big Blanket | $135 | Big Blanket Co. | Promo code SAVE10-6XSMJW
Photo: Big Blanket Co.

If you can’t abide your toes sticking out from under your blanket when you’re trying to stay warm, it turns out the solution is as simple as buying a big-ass blanket. As in, a blanket you could literally get lost under for hours.

The Big Blanket Co. is set to release—wait for it—a big blanket. 10' x 10', to be precise. That means you never have to worry about which side is the long side, “stealing the covers” is a thing of the past, and there’s always room to share the warmth. Preorders are marked down to $150 (from $200) until the end of January, but you can save an extra 10% today with promo code SAVE10-6XSMJW. That seems like a lot to spend on a blanket, but maybe not when you consider that there’s more material here than four regular sized blankets.


Ninja Air Fryer | $69 | Walmart
Photo: Amazon

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 $69 Ninja air fryer a try, down from its usual $99. 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!


Anker PowerPort Cube | $19 | Amazon | Clip the $2 coupon and use code ANKERP27

We’ve seen power cubes with more ports and outlets from other manufacturers, but Anker’s take on the category has a few nice touches. While it leaves one side of the cube empty, it does come with adhesive pads that let you mount it on a wall or underneath a desk. It normally sells for $26, but you can get it for just $19 today by clipping the $2 coupon and using code ANKERP27 at checkout. That’s the cheapest it’s been.


A good VPN is an essential tool for protecting your anonymity online, especially when you’re using public Wi-Fi, and can also potentially unlock other countries’ streaming services. (Hint hint: watch Love Island on Netflix by routing through a British VPN).

Private Internet Access is our readers’ favorite VPN, and to celebrate the official launch of their fancy new app, they’re offering the best deal we’ve ever seen, exclusively to our readers.

Just sign up for a year of the service at $40 through this link, and you’ll get five months added to your membership for free, compared to the three months they’re offering the general public. That’s only about $2.35 per month!


SanDisk Extreme 128GB MicroSD | $26 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

While it’s not the cheapest 128GB microSD card we’ve ever seen, SanDisk’s Extreme 128GB card blows most competitors away with read speeds up to 160mbps, compared to 90-100 on most competitors. Not every device will be able to take full advantage, but for things like high-end action cams that shoot 4K, it could come in handy. It’s also, needless to say, as future-proof as flash storage can be.


Anker Powerline+ Lightning Cable 6ft | $12 | Amazon | Promo code CABLE8122. Works on all colors
Anker Powerline+ Lightning Cable 3ft | $10 | Amazon | Promo code CABLE8121. Works on all colors
Photo: Amazon

These Anker PowerLine+ Lightning cables (3' | 6') are wrapped in nylon, are rated for 6,000 bends, and come with an 18 month warranty, all of which are improvements over Apple’s own Lightning cable, and that’s not even accounting for how much nicer they feel to use, or the included pouch that keeps them organized.

Oh yeah, and at $10 or $12 each, they cost about as much as what you’d pay at the Apple Store for an inferior product.

I’m not sure if you heard, but there’s a rather large sporting event happening next weekend, and if you have a TV, but don’t pay for cable, all you need to watch it for free is an over the air HDTV antenna.

This one includes an amplifier to boost your range, and is only $9 today with promo code Y6EU7TZO. Just ignore the ESPN logo on the product photo; antennas can’t pull in ESPN. But that game you’re thinking of? It’s on CBS.

Anker USB C Hub, 5-in-1 USB C Adapter | $22| Clip coupon on page and the promo code AKCHUB44
 

USB-C will be truly ubiquitous one of these days, but for the next few years at least, owners of USB-C laptops will probably want to carry a dongle or two. A couple of Anker’s highly rated adapters are on sale right now, so just be sure to use the correct code for each and clip the coupon code on the page to maximize your discount.

You don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars to enjoy the benefits of noise canceling headphones: TaoTronics’ latest noise canceling over-ears are down to just $40 today with promo code 2SI6REVL when you also clip the coupon on the page.

The ANC won’t match Sony or Bose, but it’ll definitely do well, especially against consistent noises like fans or airplane engines. They’ll last 30 hours on a single charge, are extremely comfortable, and fold up for easy storage.


Sometimes the number of built-in LAN ports in your sexy, modern router isn’t enough. Luckily there’s a cheap solution: Networking switches.

This $15 TP-Link 5-Port model is the cheapest we’ve ever seen on Amazon and about $5 less than average going rate. But the $18 Netgear 8-Port model is an even better deal. That’s a extra port per dollar. That’s a steal.

It’s also quite rare that ones with metal housing can be so cheap. So save yourself a future headache and invest on either of these models. You won’t regret it.

While USB-A to USB-C cables can’t take advantage of Power Delivery charging speeds, it’s still a good idea to keep a few handy for charging USB-C-powered phones, tablets, and other devices from regular old USB chargers, even if they’re slower.

Today at Amazon, you can grab a pair of 6' nylon-braided cables from Anker for just $8, down from the usual $10, with an extra 5% off when you clip the coupon. They even have a lifetime warranty if anything goes sideways.


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.

If you’re anything like me, you got a small screwdriver bit set in a stocking when you were like 19, and you’ve used the same slowly dwindling, extremely disorganized bits for every home improvement project ever since. Don’t have a Philips head bit that’s quite the right size? Eh, just use a flathead, it’ll probably be okay.

It doesn’t have to be this way! This 100-piece bit set from DEWALT includes four complete sets of bits for different jobs, in four different boxes, for just $30. I’m not saying you’ll never lose one, but you’ve got a lot of options here if you do.
