Today’s Best Tech Deals

Anker PowerWave Qi Charging Stand | $13 | Amazon | Promo code AKA252401

Qi stands > Qi pads in almost every situation. This is not an opinion, and it’s not a debate. Anker’s highly rated PowerWave Qi stand is one of the most popular ones out there, and it’s down to $13 today after you clip the 10% coupon and add promo code AKA252401 at checkout. That’s good for the best price ever.

Just note that while this stand does support 10W charging for compatible Android phones, it doesn’t support 7.5W charging for iPhones; they’ll be limited to 5W.


Cree Connected Smart Bulb | $8 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Cree is, rather quietly, one of the biggest LED manufacturers in the world, and now they’ll sell you smart light bulbs for just $8 a pop, down from the usual $12.

These bulbs do require a hub to operate, but they don’t use a proprietary hub. Rather, an Amazon Echo Plus or Echo Show, or any Wink, Wemo, or zigbee certified hub will do just fine, enabling you to create scenes, dim your lights from afar, and control them with your favorite voice assistant. Just note that they’re daylight tuned, and not warm white like most light bulbs.


Kootek Popsicle Molds | $8 | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

There’s nothing like a cold treat on a hot day, and since many, many hot days are still on the way, you should start making your own homemade popsicles with this $8 set of ice pop molds. Let your creative juices flow as you create your own flavors (and avoid any unwanted artificial sugars or colors often added to traditional pops). Not to mention all the money you’ll save on ice cream this summer, and all the energy you’ll save from not chasing down the ice cream truck.


Refurbished VIZIO 36" 5.1 SmartCast Sound Bar System | $120 | Woot
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Today only, a refurbished VIZIO 36" 5.1 sound bar system will cost you just $120 on Woot. Selling for about $200 new, this bundle includes the main soundbar unit, two satellites, and a sub to immerse you in sound. This particular unit also offers Chromecast audio support, which is a nice bonus, plus DTS Virtual:X for simulating Atmos-like overhead sound.

For comparison’s sake, this same refurb is selling for $50 more on Amazon. Just make sure to act quickly because this deal goes away by the end of the day, and may sell out before then.

Today’s Best Home Deals

Here’s five pounds (pounds!) of Albanese Candy Gummi Bears for $11. There are 12 flavors in the bag, and they have amazing reviews. I don’t know what else to tell you except that if you don’t buy them, you’re a cop.


20% off Bissell eBay Store | eBay | Promo code JOYBISSELL. Minimum $25 purchase. Maximum $50 discount.
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Bissell makes everything from inexpensive basic vacuums, to the handy new Pet Stain Eraser handheld fabric cleaner, to Dyson-like cordless stick vacs, and you can save an extra 20% on all of it with eBay’s latest coupon.

Advertisement

Just use code JOYBISSELL at checkout to get 20% off orders of $25 or more from Bissell’s eBay storefront (maximum $50 discount). That means you can get a refurbished Pet Stain Eraser Deluxe for just $48, compared to buying it for $100 new on Amazon. Or a Bark Bath dog washing station for $64 brand new. Or a Bissell CrossWave vacuum/mop combo for $136 refurbished (compared to $270 new).

Those are just a few of our picks, but there’s a cleaning product for everyone in here, so it’s all worth a look.


Phillips’ insanely popular Wake-Up Light is here to change your life. Philips recently added a new high end model to the lineup, which means we’re starting to see some massive deals on the old top dog, the HF3520. Grab it right now on Amazon for $75, the best price they’ve ever listed.

Unlike an unsympathetic traditional alarm clock, the Philips Wake-Up Light eases you awake with a gradually-brightening light that simulates a natural sunrise, which is how humans are designed to wake up anyway. After the light gets you out of your REM cycle and ready to wake up, an audible alarm will finish the job at the time of your choosing. Plus, it also doubles as a very warm and pleasant reading light as you’re getting ready to go to sleep.


Primula Burke Cold Brew Coffee Maker | $10 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

There are many simple, inexpensive ways to make cold brew coffee, like a mason jar and nut milk bag, for example. But a dedicated cold brew maker is generally going to make the process simpler and less messy.

This 1.6 qt. cold brew jug from Primula has everything you need to make that highly caffeinated coffee you crave for just $10, including a filter basket with a removable bottom for easier cleaning. Just pour in your coffee grounds, add water, screw everything together, and stick it in your fridge for 24 hours before removing the basket.

Note: I’m not sure why it looks carbonated in the photo, and I’m also unclear why ice is present. Ignore these things.


OXO Good Grips 5-Piece Food Storage Set | $40 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

With this set of five OXO Good Grips Pop Containers, the days of snacks going stale are no more. $40 is the best deal we’ve seen on this set since January, and it makes a great gift even if you don’t need it for yourself. They look a lot classier than chip clips, and you’re way less likely to lose them too.


Refurb Ninja 1000 Watts Blender NJ600 | $48 | Amazon
Refurb Ninja Intelli-Sense Kitchen System | $98 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Today, two Ninja blenders are on sale today thanks to Amazon’s Gold Box. Choose from the $48 Ninja NJ600 Blender and the $98 Ninja Intelli-Sense Kitchen System. The big difference is the NJ600 is more for blending smoothies and soups, while the more expensive kitchen system can act as food processor as well.

Just remember that these deals are only available today, and there’s a chance these refurbished units can sell out.


Succulent Plants (20 Pack) | $26 | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

I don’t really know why anyone would need 20 succulents, especially since I struggle to keep just one alive, but if you’re thumb is feeling extra green today, use it to buy this collection of 20 succulents from Amazon for just $26. You could fill every window sill in your home with a succulent, or just have extras on hand when you inevitably kill a few of them.


$15 off $50 Household Essentials Purchases | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Do you use paper towels? Laundry detergent? Ziploc bags? Assuming the answer is yes, you stand to save money from this limited time Amazon promotion. Just spend $50 on household essentials on this page, and you’ll get $15 off at checkout. Just make sure they’re all shipped and sold by Amazon.com directly to be eligible.

It’s similar to this Target promotion from earlier in the week, but it’s actually better since it’s a cash discount, rather than a gift card.

Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

When something only costs $1, there is no logical excuse not to buy it. You don’t need to tell yourself any excuses about the Scalpmaster Shampoo Brush. Scalp brushes are a great addition to your shower routine because they can help relieve itchy, dry scalps by getting rid of built-up shampoo. Plus, it just feels really nice to give your scalp a little scratch. For $1, this is a no-brainer deal.

Treat yourself to a whole new look courtesy of this major Rebecca Minkoff flash sale, happening now at Nordstrom Rack. You’ll find major savings on handbags and shoes, all of which exude that feminine-yet-edgy vibe the designer is known for. In fact, the more I sift through this sale, the more I think you (and I) could use some new stuff for summer...

Olivers makes some of our favorite men’s activewear that doesn’t necessarily look like activewear, and now you can remake your entire wardrobe (relatively) cheaply with their limited time Mystery Box promotion.

Advertisement

Available until 8/7, or until sold out, you can either spend $150 to get a box with $300 worth of Olivers gear, or $275 to get a box worth $600. You do get to pick your size, but you don’t get to pick the colors or contents of the box. You do, however, know that it will include some combination of the following:

  • Pants (Passage, Transit, Bradbury, Base Series)
  • Shorts (All Over Series, Capital, Base Series, Breakaway, Capital, Zuma)
  • Tees (Convoy Series, Club, Terminal Series, Varsity)
  • Midlayers/Outwear (Transit, Porter Series, Gate Jacket)

It’s all good stuff, and you’ll never get it for this cheap by any other means! It’s not eligible for returns or exchanges, however, so you’ll have to decide if it’s worth the risk.

Screenshot: YouTube

It’s an axe. It’s a saw. It’s cheaper than ever.

Off Grid Tools’ Survival Axe incorporates a 6" fold-out saw blade, a hammer head, hex sockets, a window breaker, a seatbelt cutter, and naturally, a bottle opener, all into one tool that looks like a prop from your favorite action movie. Today’s deal is the best we’ve ever seen, so grab one before they’re all chopped down.


The Kawartha Outdoor Cooler Bag | $36 | Kawartha | Promo code KINJADB50

Most coolers are designed to be carried maybe 10 minutes away from the trunk of your car, but Kawartha’s Cooler Bag is just what you need to carry some beers and snacks deep into the woods on your next hike.

The Cooler Bag is actually a dry bag with a removable, insulated insert that can hold ice and food. Our resident outdoorsman Zach has been using it for awhile, and has nothing but good things to say:

During my first test of this bag, I managed to pack in 18 already cold beers and a few frozen steaks, with ice filling in any remaining space. Packing this much does mean some of your goods won’t fit inside the cooler insert (a 12-pack alone easily will), but if you can still close the outer bag using the roll top, everything still stays pretty cold. So after a 7 hour drive to the trailhead, it was another 1.5 mile hike into camp. Though there’s no convenient way to take that much weight into a secluded site, along with your own gear, this bag makes it bearable. Like a duffel, you can sling it over your shoulder, or carry it by the side handle, which is helpful in distributing the burden of your beer across different muscle groups.

For a limited time, you can use promo code KINJADB50 to get the whole setup for just $36 ($24 + $12 shipping, I know, I know), which would be a decent price for a good dry bag by itself, let alone one that can keep your drinks cold for hours.

Evak Fresh Airless Storage Canister Small/Tall | $7 | Amazon | Clip the $.25 coupon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Prepara’s Evak containers though let you push the lid down the cylinder as you take food out, pushing out excess air along the way. It keeps your food fresh, and looks cool to boot.
