Best Tech Deals

Jabra Elite 65T True Wireless Earbuds | $120 | Amazon
Photo: Gizmodo

Jabra’s Elite 65Ts might just be the best true-wireless headphones out there. In addition to their excellent five hours of battery (plus 15 with the charging case), they feature some of the best microphones in class for calls, compatibility with all the major voice assistants, and even a two year dust and water resistance warranty, so you can work out in them without fear.

Normally $170, you can grab a pair for $120 right now, the best deal we’ve seen.


SanDisk 240GB SSD | $45 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

The best upgrade for an old PC is an SSD, and if you don’t need a ton of space, this 240GB model from SanDisk is down to $45 today, an all-time low. Just note that it’s only available for Prime members.


Anker 5-in-1 Premium USB C Hub | $40 | Amazon | Promo code ANKERCH833
Anker 4-Port Aluminum USB C Hub | $15 | Amazon | Promo code ANKERCH835
Anker 2-in-1 USB C Memory Card Reader | $8 | Amazon | Promo code ANKERC837
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you just got a new USB-C-equipped MacBook Air or iPad Pro, of if you already own a USB-C computer, you’re gonna want some dongles. Three different options from Anker are on sale today that give you extra USB ports, an SD card reader, or even a potpourri of USB, HDMI, and ethernet. Just be sure to note the promo codes.


RAVPower 6700mAh Battery Pack/Wall Charger Combo | $23 | Amazon | Promo code KINJABYC
Graphic: Shep McAllister

The Anker PowerCore Fusion is one of our biggest sellers ever, because it combines a USB wall charger and a portable battery pack into a single product. Now, RAVPower has their own alternative with a slightly larger 6700mAh battery inside, and you can grab it for just $23 with promo code KINJABYC.

They sent me one to check out, and despite the larger battery inside, it’s barely bigger or heavier than the Anker, and would make a great holiday stocking stuffer.


Elevation Lab NightPad with Quick Charge 3.0 Charger | $31 | Amazon | Promo code A4J573SH
Elevation Lab NightPad (No Charger) | $24 | Amazon | Promo code A4J573SH
Photo: Amazon

Elevation Lab, the folks behind some of our favorite Apple accessories, has a brand new Qi charging pad, and it’s 30% off today with promo code A4J573SH.

The NightPad is somewhat unique among Qi pads, in that it’s not trying to get out of your way. It’s a big, unadorned black puck, which takes up a bit more space than other options, but means that it’s a lot easier to find on your nightstand in the dark. Elevation Lab also made the bold and laudatory decision to not put any LED lights on the thing. Your phone vibrates and lights up to let you know that it’s charging, so why would you want extra lights in your face when you’re trying to get to sleep? More of this, please.

Beyond the aesthetics, they also worked with Apple to ensure that it can charge iPhones at the maximum 7.5W charging speeds. Many pads claim this, but they don’t all deliver. Just note that you’ll need a Quick Charge 3.0 USB charger to power it properly. You can buy it bundled with the NightPad, or save a few bucks go without if you already have one.


Anker SoundCore Spirit Pro Bluetooth Earbuds | $40 | Amazon | Promo code SDCREPRO

Anker has long been the purveyor of our readers’ favorite affordable Bluetooth headphones, and the SoundCore Spirits looks to be one of the best models yet. With an IP68 rating and an additional hydrophobic nanocoating that keeps them operating under sweaty conditions, they’re perfect for working out. And that 10 hour battery is best in class for this form factor. They’ll normally sell for $50, they’re marked down to $40 with week with promo code SDCREPRO.


Preorder Universal Lens Cap 2.0 | Kickstarter

Every photographer has lost a lens cap or two in their lives, but with KUVRD’s new Universal Lens Cap 2.0, you’ll want to lose them on purpose.

Advertisement

The silicone caps come in two sizes to fit multiple lens sizes, and can work as both front and rear lens caps, or stretch to protect other gear like flashes and drones. They seem simple at first, but they’re full of nice touches, like the ability to clean them in a dishwasher, white X’s on top that you can color with a permanent marker to distinguish different lenses in your bag, and side wall columns that protect your precious glass from jostling within your bag.

The Universal Lens Cap 2.0 has already blown through its crowdfunding goal, but you can still save a lot by preordering. They’re estimated to ship in February.


Apple Watch Series 3 38mm GPS + Bonus Watch Band | $259 | Walmart
Apple Watch Series 3 42mm GPS + Bonus Watch Band | $289 | Walmart
Apple Watch Series 3 38mm GPS and Cellular + Bonus Watch Band | $359 | Walmart
Apple Watch Series 3 42mm GPS and Cellular + Bonus Watch Band | $389 | Walmart | Product page says 38mm in some places, but 42mm in others, and is priced for 42mm.
Photo: Gizmodo

The release of the new Apple Watch Series 4 coincided with a price drop for the still-excellent Series 3. Today though, Walmart’s taking an extra $20 off those newly reduced prices, and throwing in a free official Apple Watch band of your choice.

This deal is valid for both 38 and 42mm models, both in GPS-only or GPS + Cellular configurations. All of the prices are $20 below Apple’s new MSRPs, and you get to choose an extra sport band or woven nylon band, in your choice of color, for free. That’s in addition to black sport band that comes with the watch, so you’ll be able to swap them out at will.


Anker 3' PowerLine II USB-C to C Cable | $7 | Amazon | Promo code ANKE8481
Anker 6' PowerLine II USB-C to C Cable | $8 | Amazon | Promo code ANKE8482
Photo: Anker

We see deals all the time on USB-A to USB-C cables, but discounts on C-to-C cables, which are necessary for faster Power Delivery charging (used by the new iPad Pros, the Nintendo Switch, and a bunch of laptops), are bafflingly rare. Today though, you can get an Anker PowerLine II C-to-C cable for just $7 with promo code ANKE8481, or double your length to 6' for $8 with promo code ANKE8482.

PowerLine II cables are incredibly durable, and also come with a lifetime warranty, so if you ever do wear it out, you can contact Anker for a free replacement.


TCL 55S517 4K 55" TV | $430 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

TCL’s 2018 6-series TVs are famous for offering every form of HDR (including top-shelf Dolby Vision) and excellent Roku software in an affordable package, and the 5-series has basically all of the same features, save for a metal body and local LED dimming zones. It still supports Dolby Vision, it still has an advanced Roku remote and app control, and it’ll still look amazing. At $430 for a 55" (about $40-$70 less than usual), it’s an incredible value.


Private Internet Access Exclusive Deals

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.

Advertisement

Private Internet Access doesn’t do much in the way of discounting, but they offer exclusive pricing and packages just for our readers that you won’t find anywhere else. Here are your options, and what you’d pay if you bought the same plan elsewhere:

These deals are only for our readers, but we aren’t sure how long they’ll be available, so go ahead and sign up while you can.

BEST HOME DEALS

Two-Tier Instant Pot Steaming Tray | $7 | Amazon | Promo code 3E2PPMGV
Graphic: Shep McAllister

The Instant Pot is amazing for cooking eggs, but the included steaming rack isn’t really designed to hold them. Luckily, these racks can hold nine eggs each, and the two of them can stack inside any six or eight quart Instant Pot to hold up to 18.

Advertisement

It’ll also work as a two-tier tray for dumplings, veggies, or anything else you want to steam, if y ou don’t want to cook 18 eggs at once for whatever reason. Just use promo code 3E2PPMGV at checkout to get the set for $7.


Cauldryn Electric Travel Mug | $90 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

You don’t have to settle for coffee that slowly gets colder as the morning wears on. This mug has a battery and heating element built right in, and can maintain the temperature of your choice.

The Cauldryn travel mug is similar to the more popular Ember travel mug, but with a few added features. Notably, you can choose any temperature you want via an app or buttons on the mug, and it can get hot enough to actually boil water on the go, which makes it great for camping, or just making a pack of hot chocolate without leaving your desk at work.

The Cauldryn normally sells for $130, but you can get one for just $90, today only.


Whirley Pop Stovetop Popcorn Maker | $21 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Microwave popcorn sucks, but this absurdly popular Whirley Pop makes it easy to make fresh popcorn on your stovetop, without burning it. Cooking it yourself means that you can customize your oil and butter (pro tip, coconut oil makes it taste like movie theater popcorn), and it only takes about three minutes to cook, so it’s basically just as fast as the microwave.

Advertisement

$21 is an all-time low, and compared to buying microwave popcorn bags, it’ll pay for itself over time.


AmazonBasics Tool and Small Parts Organizer | $7 | Amazon
Graphic: Erica Offutt

Our readers buy a lot of tools, so it’s easy to assume that you guys have plenty of screws, nails, washers, and other little pieces to store as well. This AmazonBasics small parts organizer can keep everything easy to find with 25 adjustable compartments and a snap-on transparent lid. The coolest part about it is, if you buy more than one, you can snap them together, so your tool box will grow with you.

The price here typically fluctuates between $10 and $18, and $7 is an all-time low.


Cast Iron Cookware Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Whether you’re already a cast iron aficionado, or you’re just beginning to curate your cast iron collection, you’ll want to take advantage of this Gold Box deal today. Amazon has discounted a whole kitchen’s worth of pre-seasoned cast iron cookware—everything from a classic skillet to a double dutch oven to a wok. Get ’em while they’re hot.


Nugget Ice Maker | $448 | Amazon

You might know it as nugget ice, or Sonic ice, or for you Texans out there, Buc-ees ice, but no matter what you call it, we all know it’s great. Now, there’s an expensive machine that can make it for you at home, but today, it’s $100 less expensive than usual (it’s been selling for $550 for the last several months, but previously MSRP’d for $500).

...It’s still expensive, but damn that ice is good.


AmazonBasics 48' String Light | $25 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

String up these trendy string lights in your backyard and make Pinterest proud. This 48-foot strand is completely weatherproof, so you can leave them up year-round. I’m personally not a huge fan of the white model (though they make sense for winter), but $25 is easily the best price we’ve ever seen on this popular AmazonBasics product.


Dremel MiniMite | $20 | Walmart
Photo: Amazon

You probably wouldn’t want to use the Dremel MiniMite for, like, cutting through steel bolts, but it’s perfect for smaller tasks like sanding, polishing, engraving, and, uh, carving jack-o-lanterns. Plus, it’s battery powered, and only $20 today, making it a great addition to your toolbox.


Breville Smart Oven Mini | $120 | Amazon
Breville Smart Oven | $200 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Our readers’ favorite toaster oven can replace your actual oven in a lot of situations (including cooking Thanksgiving dinner sides), and it preheats a lot faster to boot. Two different sizes are on sale right now: The Smart Oven Mini for $120 ($30 off), and the standard model for $200 ($50 off).

I got the larger model as a wedding gift, and use it nearly every time I cook, if only to roast some vegetables while I cook something else on the stove or in my Instant Pot. But, you don’t have to take my word for it, here’s what our readers love about it:

Simply the best toaster oven you can get without buying a commercial convection oven. Since buying it we only use the big oven for Thanksgiving. Heats up quick, and 100 times more even than that POS you had in college. - SteveG

Fresh Cut Christmas Tree and Wreath | Groupon
Image: Groupon

Trekking out to the Christmas tree farm is fun, but you know what’s even more fun? Saving money on your tree. Groupon is here to conserve your Christmas cash this year by taking pre-orders on a few festive options, all for about half-off, including a 6-Foot Premium Fraser Fir Tree for $80, a 22-inch Fraser Fir Wreath for $35, a Fraser Fir tree-wreath combo for $95, and a 6-Foot Snow-Tip Black Hills Spruce for $80. They’ll be shipped right to your front door starting on November 27 for maximum Christmastime freshness, but saving all that green on a tree is what will really make this holiday season merry and bright.


Anker Roav Pressure Washer | $119 | Amazon | Promo code ROAVWW22

I have to say, I don’t think pressure washers ever crossed my mind as a market Anker might compete in, but here we are. Its 2100 PSI and 1.78 gallons per minute specs should be more than enough power to clean your car or driveway, and its 35' power cable and 26' hose mean you probably won’t even need an extension cord to go with it.

Advertisement

Its current $160 list price is a pretty solid value given those specs, and promo code ROAVWW22 makes it even more enticing at $119. If you aren’t convinced, five minutes on r/pressurewasherporn will change your mind.


The Drop Monthly Can Club | First Month For $47 | Promo code KINJA20
Screenshot: The Drop

For as long as humans have been fermenting grapes, wine has always been an “indoor” beverage. If you want to enjoy wine on the go, you’ve got a pack a big, breakable bottle, a corkscrew, and glasses. There’s an entire cottage industry dedicated to making the practice slightly less inconvenient. Here’s a better idea: just drink wine from a can, dummy!

Advertisement

The Drop is an online wine club that makes and sells its own canned wine, and our readers can save $20 on their first 24-pack with promo code KINJA20 by signing up for a subscription. By default, you’ll get eight cans each of red, white, and my personal favorite, rosé, but you can also customize the mix to your liking. Each can holds 1.7 glasses, or 1/3 of a bottle, making this deal essentially eight bottles of wine for $47. You don’t need to be a math whiz to know that’s a great deal.

If you stay on as a member, you’ll get a new box every month for $67 with free shipping, which still comes out to just over $8 per “bottle.” If you’ve got too many cans piling up, you can also skip a month or flat out cancel your subscription at any time.


Gaiam Balance Ball Chair | $59 | Amazon

A finalist in our inexpensive office chair co-op, the Gaiam balance ball chair has a rare discount to under $60 today. This chair can help improve your core strength and balance, and stop you slouching, all while you’re sitting at your desk.

There are bunch of colors to pick from, and although this isn’t the best price we’ve seen on these chairs, it is a good $10 off the usual.


FoodSaver 5800 | $120 | FoodSaver
Photo: Amazon

FoodSavers can pay for themselves by keeping your frozen and refrigerated food fresher for longer, and that’s not even accounting for how great they are for sous vide.

This 5800-series model is one of the best your can buy. It automates every part of the process, from the bag feeding, to the sealing, to the cutting, and includes a handheld vacuuming hose that you can use with compatible FoodSaver accessories as well. You can buy it from FoodSaver’s site for just $120 right now, which is about half what Amazon is currently charging, and easily an all-time low.


Your KitchenAid can be used for a lot more than just mixing batters and doughs. Plug in this $63 attachment (the best price since May), and it can also core apples, peel fruits, and spiralize vegetables into healthy “noodles.”


Bamboo Mattress Pad with Fitted Skirt | $67-$88 | Amazon | Promo code KINJAPAD
Photo: Amazon

You don’t necessarily need to buy a new mattress to get a better night’s sleep: Sometimes, a mattress pad will do, and one of Amazon’s most popular options is 25% off today with promo code KINJAPAD.

Advertisement

Unlike most mattress pads, these ExceptionalSheets bamboo mattress pads are stuffed with Revoloft synthetic fill, which should feel a lot like down, but without the associated allergies and poking feathers. They also feature a hypoallergenic—and extremely soft—bamboo cover.

They sent me one to try out, and while I had no prior complaints about my Casper, the pad added a welcome boost to softness, without getting warm at night. This is not like the memory foam topper that you used in your dorm room to improve that awful mattress. Your bed will still feel like your bed, just a cozier, nicer version of it. I’m actually laying in bed as I write this, and it feels like I’m on a really nice hotel mattress.

Prices range from just $67-$88 today after the promo code, which takes 25% off all sizes.


Victorinox’s Fibrox 8” chef’s knife is one of your favorite chef’s knives period, and by far the best value in the industry. It’s also the knife I’ve used almost every day for over six years. Amazon has it for $28 right now, which is an absolute steal for the quality you’re getting.


Crane & Canopy Bath Sheets | 15% off with promo code KINJA15

If you’re still using a regular ol’ bath towel to dry off after your daily scrubbing, you’re doing it wrong. Bath sheets are basically the bath towel’s bigger, more luxurious cousin, and for a limited time, you can get one of your own from Crane & Canopy for 15% off of their usual price of $48 each, using promo code KINJA15.

Advertisement

Measuring in at a whopping 40" by 70", these bath sheets are 67% larger than your typical bath towel, and they’re made from finely combed, long-staple cotton for an extra soft and absorbent feel. We’ve previously tested out these bath sheets and were particularly impressed by their most surprising, yet ingenious feature: a built-in loop for effortless hanging.

Snag your own set in any of six available colors by November 12, when this deal runs dry.


AmazonBasics Holiday Clearance | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

AmazonBasics makes pretty much everything at this point, and generally speaking, it’s a brand you can count on to be affordable and of good quality. While Amazon runs discounts on individual AmazonBasics products with some regularity, a whole bunch of it is on sale right now.

A few favorites are below, but dozens of other products are included, so head over to Amazon to see the full list.


Rivet and Stone & Beam Furniture Sale | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Amazon makes its own furniture under the Rivet and Stone & Beam brand names, and it actually looks really good! Whether you could use an extra lamp, an ottoman, or an entire leather sofa, a bunch of popular pieces are on sale right now for up to 25% off.

I know that list prices and listed “savings” on Amazon are usually bogus, which is why we don’t often pay them any heed. Today though, the pieces I spot checked actually were discounted by the “You Save” amount listed on the product page. It seems that the price is pulling from the last listed price, which in some cases is higher than the product often sells for, but every deal I’ve checked has been good.

Advertisement

For example, this $158 coffee table says it’s $91 off today, and it does, in fact, often sell for $250. It also frequently sells for less, and has even been a little bit cheaper than $157 on a few short-lived occasions, but this is still an excellent deal. That leather couch I mentioned earlier, on the other hand, has legitimately never been discounted from $1100 until today, so you really are saving $220 no matter how you parse it. So go forth, and shop with confidence.


Three Bottles of Wine + Free Shipping | $15 | Firstleaf | Promo code Kinja. New members only
Photo: Zachariah Hagy (( ( ( ( ( (Unsplash)

Firstleaf is an online wine club that learns your preferences, offers tons of options, and most importantly, saves you money compared to buying from the store. It’s a solid deal any time, but it’s even better for our readers today.

Advertisement

Every new Firstleaf member gets an introductory delivery with three bottles of wine for just $15, plus $5 shipping. Considering that you aren’t locked in and can cancel any time, that’s a bargain. But it gets even better for our readers, as promo code Kinja will waive the $5 shipping charge, for a limited time. That’s three bottles of wine (all of mine had MSRPs over $20) for just $5 each shipped, with no commitment.

You can read more about the service in my review, but if you choose to remain a member (I did), every box thereafter includes six bottles for $80, plus $10 shipping.

Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Winter is all about layers on layers on layers — and Patagonia has vests, puffers, pullovers, and zip-ups galore, all of which are great for wearing alone on warmer days or all at once when it’s an arctic tundra outside. Right now, the winterwear purveyors are taking up to 50% off their Web Specials section until November 21. So it would behoove you to pile everything you can into your cart ASAP, so you can pile everything onto yourself in the cold months to come.


NCAA Hoodies | $22 | Fanatics | Promo code KINJANCAA
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Bowl season will be here before you know it, and it’ll still be cold enough for a jacket by the time March Madness finally gets here, so it’s a perfect time to grab a hoodie to represent your alma mater or adopted school. These hoodies from Fanatics are already on sale for $30, but you can save an extra $8 and get free shipping with promo code KINJANCAA.

Designer clothing, brands you’ve never heard of, everything in clearance an extra 25% off at checkout from their already discounted prices.


Panasonic Arc5 Electric Razor | $100 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Panasonic’s high end Arc5 electric shavers certainly aren’t cheap, but with five floating blades, you won’t find many that give you a closer or more comfortable shave. This model works wet or dry, and includes a pop-up trimmer to edge your sideburns and hard-to-reach hairs. It typically sells for around $150, but Amazon’s trimmed the price down to $100 today.
