Today’s Best Tech Deals

Anker Nebula Prizm Portable Projector | $85 | Amazon | Use code PRIZMMAR

Anker’s Nebula Capsule raised the bar for portable projectors, and now, they’ve taken the guts of that soda can, and put it into a much less expensive home projector.

On paper, the Nebula Prizm’s picture quality stats are a dead ringer for the Capsule’s. It outputs an 800 x 480 picture at 100 lumens, features automatic keystone correction, and has a built-in 5W speaker. However, it lacks an Android OS (you’ll have to use a streaming dongle, or something similar), and it has to be plugged in at all times, since it doesn’t have a battery.

Novelty aside, I could see it being perfect for a kid’s room, or maybe a bedroom or garage where you occasionally want to watch video, but don’t want to keep a TV. And at $86 (down from the usual $130-100 with the promo code PRIZMMAR,) it’s practically an impulse purchase.


Anker PowerCore+ 19000 PD Hybrid | $100 | Amazon | Promo code HYBRID13

If you own a Nintendo Switch or USB-C-powered laptop, a USB-C Power Delivery battery pack is a must. Anker just came out with a brand new one, and you can save $30 today with promo code HYBRID13.

Advertisement

First, the basics. It’s 19,000mAh, includes two PowerIQ USB charging ports, and a 27W USB-C port that can charge a 12" MacBook at nearly full speed, or a MacBook Pro a bit slower. And unlike most of Anker’s competitors’ batteries, it also includes a 30W USB-C PD wall charger in the box that can recharge the battery in 3.5 hours, and double as an extra wall charger for your other gadgets.

That’s all well and good, but the PowerCore+ 19000 PD Hybrid has one more trick up its sleeve, one we haven’t seen on any other battery pack: It doubles as a USB data transfer hub. Just switch it into hub mode, and those USB-A charging ports become data ports that can transfer data between your PC and any connected USB hard drives and flash drives. That makes it the most comically large USB-C dongle in the world, but even so, that’s a handy skill, and means you’ll have one less thing to pack when you travel.


Our desks have limited real estate and Twelve South’s PowerPic respects that and bundles the utility of a Qi charger with the the wholesome look of a picture frame. Right now, Amazon’s selling it for $53, about a dollar off the lowest price we’ve ever seen.

This particular charger can house a 5x7 image and outputs 10W to devices that support it. But just a heads up, this unit doesn’t come with a wall adapter. So you’ll need something to connect the cable to the wall.


SwitchPod | Kickstarter

Ten minutes with the SwitchPod made me realize how much I hate my dumb Gorillapod.

Scheduled to ship in August, the SwitchPod is a light-weight, handheld camera stabilizer that doubles as a tabletop tripod. And that’s it. In fact, it keeps it so simple, it’s stupid—in a good way.

It doesn’t promise to cling to tree branches, like the Gorillapod, or offer weights to create a pseudo-gimbal like other stabilizers.

Instead, it focuses on its primary functions, and adds a lot of smart, near-invisible flourishes photographers and vloggers will appreciate. These include magnets on the legs to keep them together in handheld mode, two ÂĽ-20" threads to attach accessories, a tightening knob on the underside of the body, and fuss-free switching between handheld and tripod modes.

Potential backers: There’s less than a month left to enjoy the pre-order $20 discount on this fully-funded campaign.


Anker 5-in-1 USB-C Hub | $22 | Amazon | Clip the 10% coupon and use promo code KINJA8334
Photo: Amazon

One day, everything that plugs into your laptop, tablet, or phone will use USB-C, but that utopia is a long way off, my friends. In the meantime though, I’m sorry to report that you’re going to need some dongles or adapters, and this 5-in-1 hub from Anker consolidates all of them into a single, affordable device.

Clip the coupon and use exclusive promo code KINJA8334 to get it for $22, and enjoy a couple of USB ports, an SD card slot, a microSD slot, and an HDMI port on your MacBook, iPad Pro, and basically anything else that uses USB-C.


Philips Hue Color Bulb | $38 | Amazon
Graphic: Amazon

We see good deals on Philips Hue starter kits fairly often. But if you already have a Hue system set up, it’s very rare to see individual bulbs for more than $10 off, so stock up before today’s $12 discount expires. This is about as good a deal as you’ll ever expect to see on individual bulbs outside of major holiday sale events.

Note: The $38 deal is being offered by a few third party sellers, but if they sell out, Amazon’s also discounting it to $42 directly, which is a solid deal as well.

Today’s Best Home Deals

Cuisinart 7 qt. Enameled Dutch Oven | $61 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

As far as I’m concerned, an enameled dutch oven is right up there with a good knife and great spatula in the hierarchy of must-own kitchen gear, and you can get a 7 qt enameled oven from Cuisinart for an all-time low $61 today on Amazon.

These things are on approximately 99% of all wedding registries, so even if you already own one yourself, they could make great gifts. They’re oven safe for up to 500 degrees, and they even work on induction cooktops, so you can use them in a lot of different ways.


One-Day Kitchen Gear Sale | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Do you have a kitchen? Yeah? Then you should check out this one-day Amazon sale, featuring a grab bag of kitchen accessories from KitchenAid, Amco, Faberware, and more. You should head over to Amazon to check out the sale, but here are a few favorites of ours.

Advertisement

I own this Misto sprayer, which basically turns olive oil into an aerosol, so you don’t have to keep cooking spray around.

Amco’s Rub-a-Way bar is basically a block of metal shaped like a piece of soap, but it’s surprisingly effective at neutralizing strong kitchen smells like garlic from your hands.

A classic for a reason, Taylor’s oven thermometer will ensure that you’re actually baking foods at the temperature you think you are.

Everyone should own a pizza wheel. If it’s shaped like a circular saw, all the better.

Hate removing herb leaves from their stems? Of course you do. This thing makes it way easier.

This container features a strainer on top to separate solids from your pan drippings, and a quick release escape hatch on the bottom for easy gravy access.

A good set of measuring cups is a key pillar of sanity, and these from KitchenAid feature easy-pour spouts, and easy-to-read markings.

You can’t even think about serving guac to your guests that wasn’t mixed in a stone mortar and pestle, right?

And if your kitchen gear is just in bad shape generally, you can replace the whole lot of it with this $28 KitchenAid accessory pack.

We’ve barely begun to scratch the surface scrape the pan here, so head over to Amazon to see the rest of the deals before they overcook.


Minger App and Music-Controlled Strip Light | $14 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

$14 would be a good price for a barebones HDTV bias light that you have to get up off the couch to control. But today, that gets you a 16.4' strip with a built-in microphone to bounce along with ambient music, and even Bluetooth app control. I have a similar set from the same company behind my TV, and it works great. Just use promo code 9PGVBADD at checkout to get the deal.


Join the club — you know, Sam’s Club — because right now, it’s much cheaper than usual to sign up. Via Groupon, you’ll pay $35 for a one year membership; that’s 56% off the regular price. And to top it off, you’ll also receive a $10 eGift Card, not to mention a $15 eGiftCard for first purchase on SamsClub.com over $15 and $10 off basket worth $10 or more of fresh produce. That’s quite a welcome, Sam, so go snag this deal before it sells out.


Instant Pot Ultra 6 qt. | $99 | Amazon
Instant Pot Ultra 8 qt. | $119 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

The regular, 6 qt. Instant Pot is still on sale for $70, and honestly, it’s probably the one you should buy at that price. But if you need a larger model for a bigger family, or care about aesthetics and a few extra features, the Instant Pot Ultra just went on sale too, in two different sizes.

The 6 qt. model is down to $99, and the 8 qt. version will cost $20 more, both of which are all-time low prices. The Ultra has a few extra cooking modes, but you’ll never use them. The differences that matter are the UI—the information-rich blue screen tells you a lot more than the DUO’s—and the fact that the pressure valve automatically closes when you close the lid, so you don’t have to worry about forgetting that crucial step. If you care about aesthetics, I think the Ultra looks like something Cuisinart or KitchenAid might make, whereas the DUO looks like something you might find at a flea market.

The actual cooking results between the two models should be identical, the Ultra just has a few quality of life improvements that may or may not be worth paying a bit extra for. It’s up to you, the only bad decision is to not buy an Instant Pot.


Godinger Globe Whiskey Decanter Set | $50 | Daily Steals via Facebook
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Decanters will always be classy. Take a bottle of $10 whiskey, put it in a decanter, and it instantly looks like it’s worth more. This Godinger Globe Whiskey Decanter Set is down to just $50 today. It has world map etching and a ship inside the bottle, so it’ll look like you paid a lot more than you did.

Advertisement

But if you really want to be classy, I’d recommend Lagavulin 16, Oban 18, and, if you’re feelin’ super saucy, Ardbeg Airigh Nam Beist. Shout out to all my single malt bros out there. (Don’t get Blue Label. That’s the sign of an amateur.)


Waste King Legend Series 1/2 HP Garbage Disposal | $57 | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Waste King makes some of the most highly rated garbage disposals on Amazon, and this 1/2 horsepower model is down to $57 in today’s Gold Box. I’m not sure how powerful half a horse would be, but reviewers seem satisfied to the tune of a 4.3 star average.


Habor 3.8L Air Fryer | $60 | Amazon | Promo code YYO8S4IY
Graphic: Shep McAllister

I can’t pinpoint exactly when it happened, but sometime in the past year or so, air fryers seemed to graduate from a kitchen novelty to a widespread phenomenon, almost on the same level as the Instant Pot. There are air fryer cookbooks now! They’re apparently the best way to reheat pizza! And that’s in addition to the obvious, fryer-adjacent uses like french fries, chicken wings, and my personal favorite, fried pickles.

This highly rated model from Habor is down to $60 today with promo code YYO8S4IY, so go put a crisp on your favorite foods, no oil required.

When it comes to the sneaker-and-activewear space — let’s be honest — nothing really compares to Nike. And right now at Nordstrom Rack, you’ll find a whole lot of newly marked down Nike styles for men, women and, kids.

Neogen Dermalogy Deals | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

If you’re looking for an entry point into the ever-widening world of K-beauty, look no further than these discounts on Neogen Demalogy, a cult-favorite brand that’s created a slew of natural, yet effective products you definitely should try, especially since Amazon is marking down a selection of their acclaimed items now.

Advertisement

Included among the deals are Neogen’s Green Tea Real Fresh Foam Cleanser, a must-try for combination and acne prone skin that gets ride of impurities without stripping the skin of hydration, and the Neogen Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Green Tea, a pack of pre-soaked, exfoliating pads that aren’t too harsh. Some of the brand’s soothing line of Cica products — an ingredient known for calming inflammation and redness — are also highly coveted and available for less right now.

But really, you and your skin can’t go wrong with any of these Neogen buys. Shop now, before these rarely lowered prices go back up.


Eileen Fisher Apparel and Shoes Flash Events | Nordstrom Rack
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Eileen Fisher is one of those designers that makes me feel like I have my life together, and thanks to Nordstrom Rack, there’s never been a better time to stockpile the brands’ trendy, yet timeless styles. Two flash events allow fashionistas to save on Eileen Fisher apparel and shoes, so you can truly craft a complete lewk for less. Just be sure to hurry; this stuff is selling out fast.


Urban Decay Vice Lipstick | $10 | Sephora
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

For the next seven days, Sephora is trading in their Weekly Wow deals for a Daily Wow — which, wow. First up in a long line of discounts to come is Urban Decay’s Vice Lipstick. The cult-favorite brand’s lipstick comes in six different finishes, all with a creamy texture and intense saturation, and a range of hues from the bold and the bright to the muted and subtle. Get one, or a whole bunch, today only for $10, half off its regular price of $19.


40% Off Men’s and Women’s Apparel | Express
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Spring is certainly something to celebrate, and Express is using the incoming warmer temperatures (fingers crossed!) as an excuse to take 40% off sitewide for men and women. But like this seemingly never-ending winter weather, the Spring Countdown Sale won’t last forever, so snag the styles you want — everything from dresses, shirts, suits, pants, jeans, and accessories —now.


15% Off Exfoliants | Paula’s Choice
Image: Paula’s Choice

Chemical exfoliants are a powerful part of any good skincare routine, but if you’ve somehow overlooked them until now, get in in the action with this deal from Paula’s Choice. Through Tuesday, take 15% off any of the brand’s AHA and BHA exfoliants, which promise to slough off dead skin cells, thus helping to clear out pores, even out tone, and reduce redness and fine lines. (You can read up about these types of exfoliants here.) There’s no promo code necessary to take advantage of this sale; just add to cart and find out what all the exfoliation fuss is about.


Coleman Dual Fuel Lantern | $55 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Gas lanterns seem a little old fashioned in the age of cheap LEDs and batteries, but if you prefer their warmth and light that’s only limited by how much fuel you can carry, this discounted Coleman is probably the one you should buy.

Advertisement

Why? Because it can run off both lantern fuel and regular, unleaded gasoline, which is pretty plentiful in our society! Coleman recommends that you usually use lantern fuel, since it burns cleaner, but it’s always nice to have a readily available backup option. It typically sells for around $70-$85, so at today’s $55, you’ll have plenty of money left over to buy gas.


Extra 40% Off Sale, Plus Extra 10% Off Sale | Perry Ellis | Promo code EXTRA10
Graphic: Shep McAllister

A guy could build his entire wardrobe at Perry Ellis. They offer everything from tees to suits, and if it’s in their sale section today, it’s an extra 40% off at checkout, plus an extra 10% off with promo code EXTRA10. We’re talking $10 belts, $16 shirts, $24 pants, so load up!

Today’s Best Media Deals

A Star Is Born Soundtrack Digital MP3 | $3 | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Please read to the tune of the 2019 Oscar winner for Best Original Song, “Shallow”:

Advertisement

Tell me somethin’ boy / Aren’t you tired tryna fill that void left by A Star Is Born? / Or do you need more? / Is there something else you’re searchin’ for?

Well, prices on the A Star Is Born soundtrack on MP3 are falling to $3 / And in the good times, you’ll feel yourself longing for Ally and Jackson Maine / And in the bad times, I fear this deal won’t last long.

I’m off the deep end / Watch as you buy it / You’ll never delete this sound(track MP3) / There’s so many verses / So just make this purchase / I’m done re-writing “Shallow” now.


Super Mario Bros. Encyclopedia | $20 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Gaming’s most iconic mascot got the encyclopedia he always deserved late last year, and you can pick up a copy for $20 today, within a couple gold coins of an all-time low. It features 256 full color pages with content from all 17 mainline Super Mario games, so this price should have you triple jumping for joy.

Today’s Best Gaming Deals

Splatoon 2 | $40 | Daily Steals (Facebook)
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild | $40 | Daily Steals (Facebook)
New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe | $45 | Daily Steals (Facebook)
Graphic: Shep McAllister

$15-$20 discounts on hit, first party Nintendo Switch games don’t come around every day, so if you don’t own Breath of the Wild ($40), Splatoon 2 ($40), or New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe ($45) yet, you should absolutely change that today before these deals sell out. Seriously, Breath of the Wild is one of the best games ever made. You should buy a Switch specifically to play it.

They’re all being sold via Daily Steals’ Facebook marketplace, which is a little odd, but I’ve bought things from there myself. Just note this small caveat from the product descriptions:

These games are regionally unlocked and all content is available. You may receive games from the following regions: USA, MSE, UAE, LTN. The only variance in these games is the case they come in. Game and case are in English.


Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Mechanical Gaming Keyboard | $55 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

The Razer BlackWidow Ultimate is one of the most popular mechanical gaming keyboards out there, and you can pick one up for $55 today, which is the best price Amazon’s ever listed. For that price, you’re getting five lighting options, genuine (and extremely loud) Cherry MX Blue mechanical switches rated to 80,000,000 keystrokes, and fully programmable keys.



Mpow EG3 7.1 Gaming Headset | $19 | Amazon | Promo code MPOWEG3P

Will Mpow’s EG3 gaming headset match the sound quality of a HyperX Cloud? Of course not. Do you want fancy LED lights? Try something from Razer. But if you’re on a budget and want to experience 7.1 surround sound (which really helps in games like Fortnite and PUBG), you can’t beat $19. Just use promo code MPOWEG3P at checkout to get the deal.

Deals You May Have Missed


Aukey 60W USB-C PD Desktop Charger With Two USB-A Ports | $36 | Amazon | Promo code AUKPD070

By pairing a couple of standard USB chargers with a super-powerful 60W USB-C Power Delivery port, Aukey built one of the most practical and future-proof desktop charging hubs you can buy. Get it for $36 today with promo code AUKPD070.


LG 32" 4K Monitor With FreeSync | $349 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you missed out on yesterday’s 4K monitor deal, this 32" LG is actually $10 cheaper today, and it’s even bigger. While it lacks HDR and an IPS panel like the Dell, it does have AMD FreeSync, which would make it ideal for gaming if you have a compatible GPU.


Aukey Amplified HDTV Antenna | $8 | Amazon | Promo code QYUXLW6S

If you don’t have cable, but don’t want to miss out on March Madness on CBS, or other programming on Fox, ABC, NBC, PBS, and other over-the-air networks, you can watch them in HD with this $8 amplified antenna.

Advertisement

If you’ve tried an unamplified HDTV antenna (like the standard Mohu Leaf), but can’t quite pull in every channel you want, this leaf-style model includes an amp that should add a few miles of range. Promo code QYUXLW6S brings it down to just $8, which is one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on an amplified antenna.
