Roku’s Premiere+ is one of the only streaming boxes in town capable of playing HDR 4K video at 60 FPS, and at $50, it’s by far the cheapest. That’s the best price Amazon’s ever offered on this model, and a match for what we expect to see on Black Friday, so if it’s been on your wish list, don’t hesitate.

Sound bars seem to dominate the home theater audio space these days, but if you like building your system the old fashioned way, these Sony bookshelf speakers and subwoofers are about half their usual price right now.

Before you flee the country and/or go on your next international trip, be sure to pick up this universal plug adapter for $14 with code TRAVELOC. It’ll turn basically any outlet in the world into any other outlet type, and also includes a USB port so you can plug your phone straight in.

There aren’t a ton of Bluetooth headphones that also include noise cancelling, and at an all-time low $123 (besting our last mention by $25), Sony’s Extra Bass over-ears offer great sound quality at a fair price.

These headphones have all the features you’d expect in a good pair of Bluetooth headphones these days: NFC pairing, 20+ hour battery life, and an extra bass mode that you can turn on and off at the touch of a button. But the secret sauce here is noise cancellation, so you can block out your surroundings and enjoy your music.

Don’t need noise cancelling? Get basically the same headphones without it for $98.

Sometimes, I’m still amazed that you can get a 55" TV for $400, let alone one with 4K resolution, HDR10 support (not Dolby Vision at this price, sorry), built-in Roku software, and the ability to use your phone as a remote. This has gotten down to this price a few times in the past, but it usually sells out quickly and goes back to $450.

Brother is our readers’ favorite printer brand and it’s easy to see why: they basically never jam, the toner is relatively cheap, and it prints fast (up to 32 pages per minute). The one trade off is that they don’t print in color, which when I think back to the last couple of things I’ve printed, it’s been a bunch of boring forms, so I don’t think it would be too hard of a pill to swallow.

Plus, this refurbished EHLL2360DW includes the ability to print from your mobile device. At $60, it’s at the cheapest price we’ve seen for this model and might sell out, so what are you waiting for?

If you’re intrigued by the idea of Philips Hue smart lighting, but don’t particularly care about dramatic, colorful light shows in your living room, the Hue White starter kit is exactly what you need, and it’s $40 off today.

The kit comes with four bulbs and a Hue Bridge to control them (plus up to 46 other Hue products, so you can add more as time goes on). The lhese bulbs don’t change colors, or even color temperatures, but you can turn them on or off, and dim them from your phone or with a voice assistant. You probably already have at least an Echo Dot lying around by now, and smart lighting is one of the things it does best.

This kit legitimately usually sells for $100, and the Bridge by itself typically costs about $50, so this is a hell of a deal.

If you’ve been saving your nickels for a big TV purchase this Black Friday, you don’t necessarily have to wait until the end of the month. This 70" 4K Sony is already down to its Black Friday pricing of $1198, an all-time low by about $300.

This set is on the low end of Sony’s current lineup, so you’re not getting features like local dimming or Dolby Vision HDR here, but if you’d rather invest in having a huge TV than having the absolute best image quality, it’s still a great deal.

The great thing about Philips Hue is that your fancy lighting profiles aren’t limited to standard bulbs; the Hue LighStrip Plus lets you to stick a rope of color-changing, Wi-Fi connected lights anywhere in your house.

Advertisement

This LightStrip Plus is compatible with Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple HomeKit, and it hardly ever goes on sale, but while supplies last, you can get this for the lowest price ever, just $50. This kit includes a 6' strip, but you can add on 40" extensions for a (comparatively) affordable $30, if that’s not quite long enough.

Advertisement

Just note that you’ll need a Hue Bridge to control this thing; it’s not a starter kit on its own.

This normally-$110 backpack is just $80 today. I would tell you more, but its Amazon product description would do a better job:

Anker PowerPort 4, $19 with code AAAA2142
Advertisement

The wall charger that came with your phone just doesn’t cut it while traveling these days. In addition to probably being slow as hell, you likely have at least two or three USB-powered devices that you’ll want to charge every night while you sleep.

Luckily, Anker stuffed four USB ports and 40W of power into a tiny travel charger (with folding AC prongs!), and you can get it for $19 today with promo code AAAA2142.

Anker’s PowerLine Lightning cables have been reader favorites for years, and while they’ve since been followed up with PowerLine+ and PowerLine II sequels, they’re still fantastic cables that will last you a long time, and feel great in the process. For a limited time, get one in white for just $6 with code ANKER811, or less than 1/3 of what Apple charges for their own, inferior cable.

We don’t post a lot of wired headphones anymore, but we’ll make an exception for Bose’s iconic QuietComfort noise cancelling cans.

Both the Apple and Android version are marked down to $179 right now, an all-time low, $100 less than usual, and a match for what expect to see on Black Friday. If it wasn’t already clear, Black Friday has already started this year.

Anker SoundCore Mini, $24 with code QUM7D9ED
Anker SoundCore 2, $34 with code 6XYGBCPW
Anker SoundCore Sport XL, $56 with code QUM7D9ED
Advertisement

Anker’s SoundCore line of speakers have been huge hits among our readers, and you can choose from three different models on sale today, ranging from tiny to booming.

On the small end, the SoundCore Mini packs impressively loud audio into a speaker the size of half a soda can. Get it for $24 with promo code QUM7D9ED.

Advertisement

I suspect that most people will want to spring for the SoundCore 2, which is a true sequel to our readers’ favorite Bluetooth speaker. The main selling points here are 24 hour battery life (and that’s a conservative estimate, in my experience) and IPX5 water resistance.

And if you missed it yesterday, the rugged and powerful SoundCore Sport XL is still $14 off with code QUM7D9ED. With dual 8W drivers, this is loud enough to fill an entire yard.

Anker’s original SoundBuds were our readers’ favorite affordable Bluetooth headphones, but they’ve since spawned an entire line of earbuds to fit every budget and lifestyle.

Advertisement

The SoundBuds Curve are the newest addition to the family, and are designed with active users in mind. Their ear wings ensure they stay put while you exercise, and an internal hydrophobic coating means your sweat won’t fry them. Their best spec though? 12.5 hours of battery life, which is fantastic for Bluetooth earbuds. They normally sell for $36, but you can get them for an all-time low $26 right now, no code necessary.

1 Year NordVPN, $48 with code VIP70 | 2 Year Plan, $72 with code 2YSpecial2017

VPNs are in the news these days, and with good reason. So if you’re curious to sign up and start protecting your browsing history and personal data (or, you know, getting around websites’geoblocks), NordVPN charges less per month than a typical trip to Starbucks.

NordVPN has long been one of the most popular and reliable VPN providers out there, and if you sign up for a one-year membership, promo code VIP70 will drop your annual price from $69 to $48. If you’re sure you want to commit, use this link instead to get a special two year plan for $79 with code 2YSpecial2017. Lifehacker has recommended Nord in some previous guides, but if you have any firsthand experience with the service, sound off in the comments!

If you saw this backpack on the street, you probably wouldn’t have any idea that it’s actually an insulated cooler.

The Igloo Daytripper, in addition to dry pockets for your phone and keys, is mostly comprised of a large, insulated compartment for drinks, snacks, and ice, so you can pack a picnic for places where regular coolers are too cumbersome to bring. Shane has tried one out, and came away impressed.

It’s a little out of season, sure, but $64 is the best price Amazon’s ever listed, and it’s a great holiday gift idea.

Foam Exercise Mats, 24 sq. feet, $16 after $1.25 coupon

No matter the space you’re working with, you can put down these foam mats to save your floor from damage and your joints from aching. This $16 package (after $1.25 coupon) gets you six 2' x 2' half-inch thick tiles to cover a 24 square-foot space, which is the best deal we’ve seen since July. You can also spread them out where ever you might put an anti-fatigue mat, like under your standing desk or by the kitchen sink.

One model newer than our readers’ favorite carry-on, the Travelpro Maxlite 4, is on sale for just $89, matching its all-time low price. Here’s what our readers like about it:

Great bag - roomy, well-built, and fits in every overhead bin I’ve ever tried! Suitcase just glides over any and every surface (well, maybe not gravel...) - Arkansas Aggie

Aerating wine removes that initial acidic taste that some wines can have before they have a chance to breathe. I have one of these at home and love it.

At $10 today, this aerator isn’t at the lowest price we’ve seen but it’s a good $2 discount from its usual price. It would make a great gift for a wine lover in your life.

ILIFE A4S Robotic Vacuum, $150 with code QPOTQBA7
Advertisement

Robotic vacuums are so cheap and ubiquitous now, it almost makes sense to start building a fleet of them.

Advertisement

While it lacks the brand recognition of a Roomba, and we can’t personally vouch for them like we can for the Eufy RoboVac 11, this ILIFE A4S vacuum has very good reviews, and is insanely affordable today at $150 with promo code QPOTQBA7 Now you’ll have more time to clean the bathroom!

GORUCK’s military-inspired GR1 dominated our Co-Op for the best everyday backpack, and now Huckberry’s offering them up with an extremely rare ~$50 discount.

Advertisement

Now, even with the deal, this is still a $250 backpack. I’m not blind to the fact that that’s a lot of money. But every GR1 is hand-built over the course of four hours in the USA, is covered by a lifetime warranty, and by basically all accounts is just incredibly well-made. There’s a very real chance that this will be the last backpack you ever have to buy.

Luminoodle’s big, bright string lights are getting bigger and brighter, and you can save on your favorite size by preordering today.

Advertisement

For starters, the $44 Luminoodle Task USB is 2' long, flexible, magnetic, weatherproof, and puts out 1000 lumens, which is shocking for a USB-powered device.

Advertisement

For $119, you can upgrade to the full-sized Luminoodle Task, which is over twice as long and over three times as bright, but you’ll have to plug it into an AC outlet.

And for the most flexibility of all, $169 gets you a preorder of the Task Link, which is an AC-powered set of three lights that are that you link together to light up an entire room.

Advertisement

All three models are flexible like giant fettuccine noodles, and can stand up to rain, mount to different surfaces in multiple ways, and are controlled by an included remote. Earlybirds are already going fast though, so don’t let the lights go out on these prices.

It might not seem like mission-critical equipment, but there are times when owning a label maker can really come in handy, and you can buy a really good one right now for just $15.

Unlike many cheap label makers, DYMO’s LabelManager 280 can print graphics and barcodes, and also features a rechargeable battery so you don’t have to hunt down any AAs. I have a similar model in my drawer, and while I don’t use it every day, it definitely earns its keep every few months or so. Today’s deal is an all-time low, so grab it while you can, and get labeling.

Wirecutter crowned this Polder dish rack as the best dish rack because of its sturdy construction, effective draining system, and large utensil rack.

It normally sells for ~$40, but you can take one home for just $33 today.

These $9 gloves let you grab a hot pan out of the oven, pull meat right off a grill, or even turn logs in an active campfire without getting burned, like some kind of Thanksgiving superhero. We’ve seen silicone barbecue gloves for less than this in the past, but these are rated for much higher temperatures, and should be more flexible as well.

If you don’t own a pressure cooker, today’s a great day to fix that, as Amazon’s knocked the highly-rated Instant Pot IP-DUO60 down to $80, matching the price we’ve seen in multiple Black Friday ads. While that’s not as good as a one-day $70 deal they ran at the beginning of October, it’s still $20 less than usual, and a great chance to save if you want to use it to help cook Thanksgiving dinner.

Advertisement

If you’re worried that you won’t get a ton of use out of this thing, note that in addition to standard pressure cooking, this is also our readers’ favorite slow cooker, and one of their favorite rice cookers too. To put a fine point on it: It’s one of the most versatile kitchen gadgets you can own. Even if you already have one, I don’t need to tell you that these make great gifts, and the holidays are just around the corner.

Here’s what you guys had to say about it:

On my second one (got 10 years out of the first one, only replaced it because I lost it in a move). $15. Does the job. This isn’t rocket surgery. - shelwood

Yup, same here. It’s not rocket science AND even if it’s off by a degree or two, it doesn’t matter. Bacteria are killed by a combination of temperature and time, so the extra minute or two that it’s at temperature will easily make up for any discrepancy in accuracy. - Kumico
