BEST TECH DEALS

Refurb Apple MacBook (2015) with Core M Processor | $780-$970 | Amazon

Apple’s 12" MacBook is one of the thinnest and most travel-friendly laptops out there, and you can get the original 2015 model for $780-$970 from Amazon today, depending on your configuration.

Again, this computer is a few years old at this point, and it wasn’t exactly a powerhouse when it was originally released. But if you just need a travel-friendly Mac, and don’t need it to be particularly powerful, this is one of the best deals we’ve seen. I have the 2016 model as my work computer, and it fits perfectly on an economy airline tray table.

B&O Play Beoplay H7 Over-Ear Wireless Headphones | $200 | Amazon | Promo code KINJA44O
Graphic: Shep McAllister

As good as they were when they launched a few years ago (and they are very good), Bang & Olufsen’s Beoplay H7 over-ear Bluetooth headphones were a tough sell at their original $450 price tag. But now, the street price on them is a much more palatable $250, and our readers can save an extra $50 on a pair with promo code KINJA44O (must purchase from Roberts LP via Amazon).

For a more in-depth review on these, head over to CNET.

Polk Audio’s PSW10 has long been a go-to value pick for anyone building a home theater audio system, and you can pick one up for $89 on Amazon today, the best price we’ve seen since the holidays.

After much research, I bought this exact model several years ago, and absolutely loved it up until the day I replaced it with one of VIZIO’s surround sound bar systems. It’s not the best subwoofer out there by any means, but it’s eminently affordable, and should be more than adequate anyone who’s not an audiophile.

Whether you need a spare card for your dash cam, your GoPro, your Switch, or anything else, this 64GB Samsung microSD card is down to its lowest price today.


Harman Kardon Esquire 2 Bluetooth Speaker | $65 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Harman Kardon is best known for high-end home theater audio equipment and headphones, but did you know they make Bluetooth speakers too? The Esquire 2 has an attractively slim form factor, but is actually packing four drivers under the grill, which is two more than you’d find in most Bluetooth speakers.

The gold model is down to $65 on Amazon today, an all-time low.


LG B7A 55" OLED TV | $1300 | MassDrop
LG B7A 65" OLED TV | $2000 | MassDrop

If you love inky blacks and vibrant colors—and who doesn’t?—this 55" 2017 OLED LG TV is down to $1300 today on MassDrop (about $300 less than Amazon), or an all-time low $2000 for 65" (almost $600 less!).

As you’d expect from any high-end TV these days, that gets you a 4K panel and Dolby Vision HDR, but OLED technology means the blacks will be far richer, and the colors more vibrant than any LCD-based screen you can buy. Whichever size you choose, it’ll still cost you, but your eyes will tell you it was worth it.

ELAC B6 Bookshelf Speaker Pair | $200 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Even at their full $280-per-pair price point, ELAC’s B6 bookshelf speakers offered one of the best values in home theater audio. But at an all-time low $200 for a pair, they’re pretty much a no-brainer if you want to set up a traditional home theater audio system.


Anker PowerLine+ 10' Lightning Cable | $13 | Amazon | All four colors

With its premium nylon construction and 6,000+ bend lifespan, Anker’s PowerLine+ run laps around Apple’s own Lightning cables, at a lower price point. For a limited time, you can get the 10' model (in all four colors) for just $13 with promo code ANKER823. I have a similar 10' Anker cable running behind my couch, and it offers tons of slack so I can lounge while I charge, and it’s tough enough to be repeatedly eaten by the Roomba with no repercussions. Five stars would recommend.


Anker SoundCore Mini | $18 | Amazon | Promo code R46TM4H9
Advertisement

Anker’s SoundCore line dominated our Kinja Co-Op for best Bluetooth speaker, and the extra-portable SoundCore Mini just got its best discount ever.

I have one of these at home, and while it obviously doesn’t sound quite as good as the full-sized SoundCore, it’s surprisingly loud and clear for the size. And despite its diminutive size (picture a soda can cut in half), it features 66' Bluetooth range, can run for a whopping 15 hours on a charge, and even includes a microSD card slot for loading up some local tunes. Just use promo code R46TM4H9 at checkout to get it for $18.

North Bayou Articulating Monitor Arm | $20 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

You aren’t getting the most out of your computer monitor until you put it on a fully articulating and rotating arm. This one from North Bayou can hold monitors up to 27", and even includes cable routing and a USB hub on the base that can be easier to reach than the USB ports on the back of your display. At $20, it’s an absolute steal.


4-Pack Echo Buttons | $30 | Amazon | Add two 2-packs to your cart to save $10 at checkout
Photo: Amazon
Advertisement

Amazon’s Echo Buttons can turn your Echo device into a competitive trivia machine, and you can buy four today for just $10. Normally priced at $20 for a 2-pack, just add two 2-packs to your cart, and you’ll see a $10 discount automatically at checkout.

Once you pair the buttons to your Alexa account, you can use them to buzz in on apps like Trivial Pursuit and Don’t Cut That Wire. The buttons are open to third party developers, meaning more games and use cases are sure to come as well.

G Pen Elite | $105 | Grenco Science
G Pen Pro | $75 | Grenco Science
Advertisement

The Grenco G Pen Elite was already one of the best ground material vaporizers for the money at its usual $150, but now, you can get it for just $105 this week during the company’s 4/20 sale.

Or, for just $75, you can also opt for the smaller G Pen Pro, which should perform similarly, but with a smaller chamber capacity and less precise temperature adjustment. Either way, these deals aren’t available for long, so get in before they go up in a puff of smoke.

From Gizmodo’s review:

“Pleasant” has come to define much of my time with the Grenco G Pen Elite. It charges quickly via USB and has battery life that last for days of regular use. It also feels great in my tiny hands and fits easily in a coat pocket or a purse. The thing that takes it from “perfectly pleasant” to near outstanding is the price. It’s just $170. That’s damn cheap compared to it’s competitors. The Firefly 2 costs $329.95 and the Crafty retails for $339. Sure those products heat via convection instead of roasting a ceramic chamber, they’re much easier to pull on, and the clouds they produce are enough to fishbowl someone sitting with you, but for nearly half the price the Grenco G Pen Elite is a fantastic deal.

Amazon Warehouse Extra 20% Off Sale | Amazon

Amazon aficionados know that the company sells lightly used products at significant discounts under its Amazon Warehouse brand, and to celebrate Earth Week, you can save an extra 20% at checkout. Because it’s sort of like recycling, I guess?

Tons of categories are included in the sale, including video games, TVs, kitchen appliances, and cameras. Just find an Amazon Warehouse listing of an eligible item, add it to your cart, and you should see an extra 20% discount at checkout, on top of the already-discounted price you got for buying used. Most products tend to only have a handful of Warehouse listings though, so go cross a few things off your wish list before the good stuff is all gone.

DirecTV Now is one of the better over-the-top cable replacements out there, and with this deal, there’s very little reason not to give it a try.

For a limited time, if you prepay for three months of the service at $35 per month, you’ll get a 4K Apple TV included for free. That Apple TV costs $179 normally, so you’re basically getting a $74 discount on the box, plus three months of live TV. No brainer.

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.

Last month, they offered our readers $10 off two year memberships, but this time around, you get a few more choices, ranging from a quick taste of the service to an extended commitment with additional savings:

BEST HOME DEALS

Give your desk or apartment a little marquee with this $20 one from THINK. At that price, think of it as less than a cent for every slightly questionable word choice you’ll come up with because it comes with 265 letters, numbers, and emojis. Just think of all the curse words and sexual innuendos via emoji you could dream up.


Refurb Dyson Ball Animal | $170 | Woot | Free shipping for Prime members, $5 for non-members
Graphic: Shep McAllister
Advertisement

Update: If you missed last week’s Dyson deal, Woot is running is an even better one today; They’re listing this refurbished Dyson Ball Animal for $170.

Dyson vacuums dominated the nominations in our Kinja Co-Op for best vacuum, but they can be prohibitively expensive. Today though, refurbs of the popular Dyson Ball Animal are down to $170 on Woot, one of the best prices we’ve seen.

Advertisement

The Dyson Ball includes a brush that automatically adjusts when you move from carpets to hard floors, a ton of accessory hose tools, including a motorized turbine tool to remove pet hair from furniture, and even a curved tool to help you clean the tops of your ceiling fan blades. And yes, it rests on top of a ball for easy maneuverability. This price is only available today, and will probably sell out early, so get your before they’re all sucked up.


Superior Bidet Warm Water Dual Nozzle Bidet | $52 | Amazon | Promo code 20KINJADEAL
Graphic: Shep McAllister
Advertisement

There are $20 bidets, and bidets that cost as much as a mortgage payment, but today’s deal seems to strike a great balance between the two.

This model from Superior Bidet has two features that you won’t find on the cheapest alternatives: Dual nozzles for optional feminine cleaning, and adjustable water temperature. To get the latter, you’ll need to run a skinny hose that connects under your bathroom sink, but your undercarriage will appreciate the effort.

Advertisement

It doesn’t have electronic controls or an automatic deodorizer, but for a perfectly reasonable $52, it’s tough to complain. Just be sure to use code 20KINJADEAL at checkout to save 20%.

Need to trim up the grass in your smaller yard? This eco-friendly reel lawn mower can tackle most weeds and grasses while not waking up the neighbors. This updated, heavier design will pitch grass forward or backward, and reviewers note the blades stay sharp for a long time. Today’s price is the best we’ve seen so far in 2018, and it’s a good $25 discount from the typical price.

Amazon wants you to use that tax return money on some new classy furniture. Today, they’ve discounted some pieces of their most popular brands by $75 or more.

First up, this Stone & Beam cognac sofa will run you $200 less than usual, and is made with 100% leather. You can sit in this high-backed Rivet love seat for $75 off, and this accent chair (available in a couple different colors) is discounted 100 bucks.

Chemical Guys makes some of the most popular car detailing products on the market, and Amazon’s currently taking 30% off several soaps, waxes, tire and glass cleaners, and more. Just note that the prices listed on this page don’t include the discount, so you won’t see the deal until checkout.

This desk lamp looks like the Pixar logo if it was designed by IKEA, and you can get it for $26 with promo code 2086MR23. It doesn’t have USB charging ports, multiple color temperatures, or even a built-in bulb, but if you like the style, this is a solid price.


AeroGarden Sale | Home Depot

As you may know, you don’t need a yard or even any gardening skills to grow your own vegetables, fruits, herbs, and flowers at home - you just need one of these countertop AeroGardens.

Both of these include everything you need to get started like 12 seed pods, LED light, plant food, and accommodations for up to 6 plants. The Harvest Touch is the newest model, and features a nice customizable, touch screen monitor that will guide you through the growing process, telling you when to add water and nutrients, and displaying the light schedule. The Harvest Elite doesn’t have a touch screen monitor, but very similar features are displayed on the smaller screen at the base.

Advertisement

These two gardens are listed between $30 - $50 less than their usual price. Plus, this deal will only last through the end of the day or until the products sell out, so if you’ve been wanting to get one of these, now’s the time to harvest.

If you prefer, Amazon has price matched the Harvest Elite in copper, red, and steel colors.

No matter how great your main vacuum might be, you need a hand vacuum in your arsenal for cleaning car seats, ceiling fan blades, and other hard to reach places. Plus, for quick messes around the house, it’s a lot easier to grab a hand vac than to schlep your Dyson Ball out of the closet and plug it in. This powerful 20V model from Black & Decker is down to $45 today on Amazon, about $15 less than usual, and an all-time low.

Shadow of the Colossus | $30 | Amazon
