Today’s Best Tech Deals

Samsung Q9FN 65" QLED TV | $1,899 | Massdrop
Samsung Q9FN 75" QLED TV | $2,999 | Massdrop
Sony X850F 85" 4K TV | $2,299 | Massdrop

If you want the highest end TVs at...a somewhat below the highest end budget, Massdrop is the place to shop. As usual, they’ve got three of the biggest and best TVs on sale for way less than anybody else today.

Leading the way at 65" and 75" is Samsung’s Q9FN, its best consumer level TV from the 2018 model year. The smaller one is priced at an all-time low $1,899, and the 75" will set you back $3,000. So what makes them worth that much? A laundry list of features you’d want in a high-end TV, including quantum dot technology for better colors, full array backlighting for deeper blacks, Samsung’s best HDR technology, and even Ambient Mode, which turns your TV into a piece of artwork, or blends it into your wall when not in use.

If you want to step up to 85", Sony’s X850F is marked down to $2,299, a bargain for a screen of that size. It’s not as high-end a set as the Samsung—notably, it lacks full array backlighting, and only supports HDR10—it’ll still look great, and it’s still huge.


Logitech Harmony Smart Control with Harmony Hub | $58 | Amazon

$58 for a Logitech Harmony remote is a great deal on its face, but the real reason to buy this model is the included Harmony Home Hub.

The Hub allows you to use your iPhone, Android device, or even an Amazon Echo to control everything a Harmony remote can (which is basically any piece of home theater gear you can think of). So even when you inevitably lose the included remote behind the couch cushions, you’ll still have multiple ways to take control of all of your home theater gear.

Considering the hub alone sells for $70 right now, getting the hub plus a remote for $58 is a pretty terrific deal, even if it was as cheap as $45 back around the holidays.


The trusty Brother HL2380DW laser printer has long been a hit with our readers, but it was recently replaced by the HL2395DW, and the new model is on sale for its best price ever.

Compared to the 2380, the new one is slightly faster (36 ppm vs. 32), uses less electricity, and has NFC for direct printing from compatible Android phones. All the basics that have made Brother printers a hit are still there too, including duplex printing, AirPrint and Google Cloud Print support, relatively inexpensive and long lasting toner, and a complete lack of the carriage jams and destroyed paper you’ve come to expect from inkjet printers.

If you aren’t satisfied with your current printer (which is a pretty safe bet if it’s not a Brother), this is a great buy at $100.


AstroAI IR Thermometer | $13 | Amazon | Promo code 30QH54PB
Graphic: Shep McAllister

IR thermometers are useful for a great number of things. Cooking, car repair work, finding air conditioning leaks...you’ll definitely find a legitimate use for it every now and then. But really, you should mostly buy one because they’re fun as hell to play around with. Get this model for $13 with promo code 30QH54PB, for a limited time.


AstroAI Digital Multimeter Clamp Meter | $16 | Amazon | Promo code 3084NEDC
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Before you do any electrical work around your house, you want to make sure that you aren’t in for any shocking surprises. This clamp multimeter can test outlets and wires for AC/DC Voltage, AC Current, resistance, and continuity, and it’s only $16 today with promo code 3084NEDC. That’s a hair-raising deal.


NETGEAR Orbi Whole Home Mesh WiFi System (RBK23) | $210 | Amazon | Clip coupon on page
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

If you take your home Wi-Fi coverage seriously, Netgear’s Orbi mesh routers are some of the best you can buy, and Amazon’s running a great deal on a brand new system. This Reader Favorite is now selling for just $210, after you clip the coupon on the page.

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. (Walls hamper signal, bro.)

This model also offers all the benefits of a modern router (e.g., 802.11ac/Wi-Fi 5 and app-based management) and is currently selling for about $10 off the lowest price we’ve ever seen on Amazon.


SanDisk 256GB MicroSD Card | $37 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Nintendo Switch games and 4K GoPro footage take up a lot of space, so if you need 256GB of storage on a card the size of your pinkie nail, this deal’s for you. $37 is the best price we’ve ever seen on a card with this capacity from any major manufacturer.

Wayfair Way Day Sale
Graphic: Wayfair

Following in Amazon’s grand tradition of taking an arbitrary day on the calendar and turning it into a sales holiday, Wayfair just kicked off Way Day, with 36 hours of markdowns on thousands of pieces of furniture and home goods. Rugs, chairs, sofas, dining sets, and more are included, in every conceivable style, with free two day shipping on all orders.

You’ll also want to keep checking back throughout the sale, as many deals are only available on a rotating basis, with new markdowns available every six hours. There’s a lot to sort through here, so if you see any gems, be sure to drop them in the comments.


4-Pack Metal Wine Glasses + Wine Stopper | $22 | Daily Steals | Promo code KJWINE
Photo: Amazon

You can bring your wine to the pool this summer; you just can’t do it in a glass. This is a good rule and one that you should follow! Instead, grab this 4-pack of metal wine glasses for $22 with promo code KJWINE, complete with a bonus wine stopper. And unlike your actual wine glasses, these are dishwasher safe. Cheers!


Vremi 9 Piece Wine Gift Set | $16 | Amazon | Promo code VREMI40APRIL
Vremi Hand Mixer | $12 | Amazon | Promo code VREMI40APRIL
Vremi Personal Blender | $15 | Amazon | Promo code VREMI40APRIL
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Vremi: What started with a clever olive oil bottle has expanded to a full line of affordable kitchen accessories on Amazon, and three of them are even more affordable today with promo code VREMI40APRIL. That’ll take 40% off a wine gift set, a hand mixer, and a personal blender for making smoothies on the go.


Philips Hue White Ambiance Bulb | $25 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Full RGB color light bulbs are fun, but most Hue owners primarily use their lights to glow in different temperatures of white. Daylight is great for stimulating you throughout the day, while warmer shades of white can help ease you to sleep in the evening.

Philips makes a Hue bulb specifically designed for this, and it’s down to $24 on Amazon today, a $5 discount.


BarkBox Plush Toy Bundle, Large or Small/Medium Dogs | $25 | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Tails will wag when you bring home this BarkBox filled with plush toys for your best furry friend. Right now, Amazon is marking down the 4-toy bundle for large and small dogs to just $25. This sale will only last one day though, so don’t play around; go fetch!


Amrapur Alternative Down Comforters Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Just because it’s getting nicer out, doesn’t mean you should stop sleeping in. And what better way to spend your weekends than under a down alternative comforter? And lucky for all of us, there’s a sale on ‘em thanks to Amazon.

These comforters are of “medium warmth,” so they should still be useful throughout the spring and summer. Better still, they’re available in a number of different colors and sizes, from twin to king, starting at about $18.

Just make sure you order quickly, because this is a Gold Box deal, which means it’ll disappear by the end of the day or until sold out.


10 Pounds Diatomaceous Earth | $20 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Diatomaceous earth is one of the most effective weapons we have against bugs, and Amazon will sell you a 10 pound bag of the stuff for $20, down from its usual $22. Despite the unspeakable things it does to bugs in your yard, it’s actually food grade, and completely non-toxic for humans and pets. It even works on bed bugs, though hopefully that’s not why you’re buying it today.


Chemical Guys Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Today only, a ton of Chemical Guys car care products are on sale for some of the best prices ever as part of Amazon’s Gold Box.

If you aren’t sure what to get, one of the affordable starter kits are a good place to start. Several are available in the sale, including some that come with a bucket.

Lots of individual products are available as well, so for all of the deals, drive over to Amazon before these deals expire at the end of the day.

Today’s Best Lifestyle Deals

Spring Sale | Nordstrom

When one of Nordstrom’s rare seasonal sales emerges, it’s important to pay attention, and right now, the department store’s best deals are coming out of hibernation to ring in the spring. Nordstrom’s Spring Sale features thousands upon thousands of on-sale items for men, women, kids, and home. So just be aware, it’s going to take some time to sift through it all.

Perhaps the best way to handle a massive sale like this is to filter by brand, and you can bet many of your favorites are going for a great price during this event. Nike, J.Crew, Levi’s, Adidas, PUMA, Cole Haan, Madewell, and so, so many more coveted brands are up for grabs for much less than usual.

For the guys, we particularly love this marked-down Billy Reid shirt jacket, this solid pair of Trask suede boots, or a trendy camp collar shirt. Meanwhile, ladies will find tons of shoes, handbags, and other accessories, including our favorite large Landon Duffle from Dagne Dover, at great prices. So what are you waiting for? Time to spring into action and shop this stellar sale.

Super Shock Shadow singles are down to just $4 each at Ulta — down from their normal $5 —for a limited time. These highly pigmented, perfectly shimmery shades rarely go on sale, so stock up while you can.

Graphic: Shep McAllister

It’s the most wonderful time of the (sports) year, at least for buying team apparel. The NBA and NHL playoffs are ramping up, baseball is getting under way, and you can support your favorite team or school for 20% off at Fanatics with promo code SPRING20. That applies to all full price items (with a few exceptions like jerseys), so go fill up a cart.

The NBA and NHL stuff is obvious given the circumstances, but we want to give a special shout out to the Copa de la Diversión Minor League Baseball alternate New Era hats. I want every single one of them, from the San Antonio Flying Chanclas to the El Paso Margaritas to the Durham Malde Ojos to the Clinton Elotes.

Today’s Best Media Deals

Saturday’s UFC Holloway v. Poirier rematch is exclusively available as a $60 pay-per-view add-on for ESPN+ subscribers, which itself costs $5 per month, or $50 per year. That’s a lot of money to see two people try to kill each other!

Luckily, if you aren’t already an ESPN+ subscriber, they’re offering a special deal just for this fight. $80 gets you a full year of ESPN+ and the fight, or $30 less than buying both separately. After your first year, your subscription will auto-renew for $50 unless you cancel. Enjoy the show!


The Sopranos: The Complete Series | $50 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Update: Back in stock, if you missed it a few weeks ago.

If you want to whack another prestige series off your to-watch list, the complete Sopranos Blu-ray is down to an all-time low $50 on Amazon right now. That comes out to less than $.60 per episode, and you also get digital copies for free. Grab this deal before it gets whacked.

Today’s Best Gaming Deals

God of War | $30 | Amazon

God of War is pretty spectacular, and if you still haven’t grabbed a copy for your PS4, Amazon’s marked the game down to $30. That’s its best price of the year (though it was cheaper around the holiday season), so this is a deal that will make your papa proud.


Funemployed | $8 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

If Cards Against Humanity is starting to feel a little stale, Funemployed is one of our favorite alternative adult party games, and it’s on sale for just $8 today on Amazon. Here’s what our Eric Ravenscraft had to say about it on The Inventory:

Funemployed gets you in the party mood by asking you to pretent you’re applying to a job you’re barely qualified for. You know, fun. Each round, there’s a job that everyone is trying to land, like Bounty Hunter or Mad Scientist. Players then have to build their resume with Qualification Cards like “Russian Accent,” or “Sexting.” How, exactly, does being good at sexting help you get a job as a bounty hunter? That’s up to you to explain. If you can sell yourself as a job candidate with the qualifications you have, you win.

I would hire this game.


Terraforming Mars | $40 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Terraforming Mars is a board game about, uh, terraforming Mars. It has great reviews on Amazon, an 8.4 rating on Board Game Geek, and is down to its best price since last April. If you have some family time to kill over the next few weeks, each game should last you a couple of hours or so.


Man, today is a great day to be a Nintendo Switch owner. The classic JRPG, Tales of Vesperia, is down to just $35 for the console. Fans have ranked this particular go-around as one of the best and it was upgraded when ported to the Nintendo Switch, too.

Mike Fahey says he was riveted from the get-go, thanks to the game’s “outstanding characters, compelled by the dynamic real-time battle system and carried along by the narrative’s excellent pacing, I burned through the 50-hour game in a weekend (I didn’t have twin boy children back then). It left me wanting more.”

Seems worth $35, no?

Deals You May Have Missed

As far as home improvement projects go, it’s tough to beat the effort-and-cost-to-cool-factor ratio of installing power receptacles with built-in USB charging ports. Why plug in a big ugly USB wall charger if you don’t have to?

TOPGREENER has been Amazon’s top seller of these types of receptacles for years, but we’ve never seen them this cheap before. Get two receptacles for $20, while they last.
