TODAY’S BEST TECH DEALS

Buy 3 Years at 70% off, Get 1 Month or 1 Year Free | NordVPN | Promo code KINJAEASTER
Buy 3 Years at 70% off, Get 1 Month or 1 Year Free | NordVPN | Promo code KINJAEASTER

To commemorate the week of the Egg, NordVPN wants to respect your privacy by encouraging you to respect it yourself. For a limited time, you’ll get a free month or year when you subscribe to the service for 3 years using the promo code KINJAEASTER. Better still, the 3-year membership is 70% off, so essentially you’re getting two deals for the price of one. They don’t call us Kinja Deals for nothing.

Now whether you get a month or a year at checkout is admittedly a gamble because the outcome is applied at random. To be honest, though, it’s kind of a win-win. Either way you’re getting 3 years of solace in the knowledge that your browsing habits will be kept to yourself. Dodge roll all the targeted ads and spare yourself unwanted ISP surveillance today.

Your car is a great place for a wireless charger, but if you use GPS, audio streaming, and crank your screen to full brightness while you drive, a 5W Qi charger might not quite keep up with your device’s battery drain.

Enter Anker’s PowerWave, one of the first Qi car mounts to support 7.5W wireless charging for iPhone, the maximum possible speed. It also supports 10W charging for compatible Android phones, though that’s less rare (See: New Samsung Galaxy smartphones.) The catch is that you’ll need a Quick Charge USB car charger to power it, and it’s not included. If your current charger doesn’t include Quick Charge, you can pick this one up for just $9.

Everyone’s home, everyone’s loud, and everything is terrible, but not with the right pair of active noise-cancelling (ANC) headphones. Last year, TaoTronics proved itself a worthy contender to the budget ANC throne with a $110 pair of hybrids, which cost less than half the price of Sony’s amazing WH-1000XM3's.

Now it has a $55 pair that’s 32% off with the onsite coupon combined with our exclusive promo code KINJA9E6, bringing the final price to $37 before tax. Considering these headphones just came out two months ago, this is the deal to beat on the 2020 version of TaoTronic’s active noise-cancelling headphones.

With 40 hours of battery life, USB-C charging, Bluetooth 5.0, and a CVC 8.0 mic, it’s time to shut out all the bad stuff and focus on your inner-healing with the vibration of music, or perhaps some soothing ASMR.

These headphones will help you do just that, if only for a fleeting moment:

Even in the time of social distancing, a good power bank can be useful to keep your tunes going on your daily walk, or maybe you’ve been low on outlets since everyone’s staying home to quarantine. Whatever the case, at $20 right now, Aukey’s Sprint Go Mini 10000mAh power bank is a great option that won’t starve your wallet.

With one USB-C port and one USB-A port, you can simultaneously charge two devices, covering anything from your AirPods Pro to a Kindle or Nintendo Switch.

Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and with the way things are right now, it’s never too soon to start shopping. Can’t think of a perfect gift? Consider getting her a lovely limited edition Tile Mate. There are three beautiful styles to choose from, and they’re still going for the usual $25 (shipping included) despite the scarcity.

These little tags can be attached to keys, smartphones, and anything else that facilitates dangling accessories. When you have everything up and running, you can use the smartphone app to locate your item with sound or GPS help. Conversely, the Tile can ring whatever phone it’s connected to by double-tapping the button.

You want one charger for all the things, you say? Anker’s 60W PowerPort Atom III USB-C fast charger fits the bill nigh perfectly, and with exclusive code KINJAPD60, it drops to just $25, down from its typical $40. This Power Delivery charger has enough throughput to quickly charge smartphones, tablets, and even your power-hungry laptop despite being significantly smaller than whatever it shipped with. Thanks to PowerIQ 3.0, your devices will never take on more current than they can handle. The only downside is that it can only charge one device at a time.

Whether you’ve been buying lots of new toys to keep your kids busy—or some of the less wholesome variety—a big pack of batteries is never a bad idea to keep on-hand. Today, you can get a 24 pack of Energizer’s AAUltimate Lithium batteries for $25, and you can save an extra $1 if you order with Subscribe & Save. These batteries promise maximum capacity and decade-long shelf life, so don’t be afraid to buy and store them for a rainy day.

If your job wants you to work from home but only provides little more than a potato hooked up to a mouse wheel, you may be in the market for a new business laptop, and this HP Pavilion might just be too good to pass up at this price. At Woot, you can claim a 15" CS3000-series model for $630, the only hook being that it’s refurbished, but that’s close to $300 off the cost of a new one.

A quick glance at the spec sheet shows you won’t have any want for business needs, highlighted no doubt by its 10th generation Intel Core i7 chipset, 12GB of RAM, 1TB of storage, and a 1080p touchscreen. Seriously, that’s a lot of computer for very little coin, and with a 90-day warranty included (you can buy a full year of protection from SquareTrade, too) it’s worth pulling the trigger.

Since you’re spending a lot of time at home these days, why not think about upgrading it? Best Buy’s big smart home sale is the perfect opportunity to do so. The company is discounting several popular smart home components, including $30 off a Google Nest Hub or Amazon Echo Show 8, $40 off the third-generation Amazon Echo speaker with Alexa, and $20 off both Amazon’s and Google’s smaller smart speakers in the Amazon Echo Dot and Google Nest Mini, respectively.

You can also get $20 off a Ring Chime when you buy select doorbells, take $200 off an Arlo Pro 2 four-camera security camera system for a $450 final price, or $50 off a similar setup with Swann, which adds another two cameras for a much better $270 total. There are even smart water systems that can detect problematic leaks in your pipeline. Need a better network to handle all this? Best Buy has you covered there, too. A 3-pack Linksys Velop mesh Wi-Fi system can be yours for $330 following a $70 discount, or grab Netgear’s R6400 AC1750 dual-band wireless router for $110, a $20 chop.

If you’re looking for motivation to go outside for your 30 minutes of CDC-permitted exercise, look no further than a pair of discounted true wireless earbuds. Down 27% from their usual $55 price tag with our exclusive promo code KINJA79S, the TaoTronics SoundLiberty 79 buds take full advantage of the company’s smart AI noise reduction technology to clear out background noise in phone calls and generally make even the noisiest apartments bearable on Zoom.

They’re also great for running outside, as the IPX7 waterproof rating protects against sweat, rain, water, and even dust. No longer do you have to find the space to exercise indoors on rainy days. Smart touch controls on the side make it easy to pick up and put down the phone without actually doing it. Best of all, even the most stubborn audio snobs will appreciate the high quality sound for the price.

Plus, Tidal is offering a free month right now and we’ve already got your first playlist started. It’s on the house.

For all the music nerds, the Anker Soundcore Bluetooth speaker is down to $21, which is $6 off the original sale price of $27. If you like to blast your music while you’re hiking or even sunbathing in the backyard, this device is perfect for you. It has about 66 feet of range between you and your phone, so all the barbecues you have to pass the time will be filled with dope music. I would hop on this deal before it’s gone! Just make sure to type in “AKSPK3102" at checkout.

Como estas? Mi nombre es Quentyn. And that’s about the extent of what I remember from the one semester of Spanish I took. If you’re like me and could brush up on basics of the world’s most common languages, Rosetta Stone deals like this one are juicy. You’ll get a lifetime license to learn Spanish—of the Latin America vernacular, specifically—for $160, which is $40 cheaper than its usual going price of late.

Considering the 12-month license is currently $20 more, this is a deal you shouldn’t hesitate to hop on if you’re looking to expand your tongue’s capabilities.

P.S.: For what it’s worth, the promo graphic at Amazon suggests this license also includes 100% access to all 24+ Rosetta languages. We can’t verify the legitimacy of this offer right now, so your safest best to buy it only if you know for certain you’d be fine with Spanish alone. Consider anything more a sweet bonus.

As social distancing and continues into the foreseeable future, families and friends turn to video chatting to bridge the distance between them. This week, Best Buy is having a sale on Facebook Portals, which make video calls a lot easier than trying to wrangle Zoom and webcams.

Advertisement

Facebook Portals work with Messenger and WhatsApp, and is advertised to have a smart camera that pans and zooms in and out according to your movement. They work with Alexa as well, so if you want to add the Facebook Portal to your smart home setup, you can use it to see who’s at the door, watch videos, and whatever else fancy smart homes do.

There are three models on sale—the Portal Mini for $80 is the best deal, but if you’re looking for something a little bigger, the Portal offers a 10 inch screen for $130. If you want to get all the bells and whistles, then the Portal Plus is $230. For basic video chatting, though, the Mini will be all you need and then some.

I’ve used my wired earbuds while working out plenty of times before and, as you might expect, it’s an absolute nightmare. Honestly, wireless is the way to go, which is why you should consider grabbing these bluetooth earbuds while they’re only $20.

Smartwatches are pretty cool most of the time, but if you’re active, a good one can really up your fitness game. Of course, a high-quality smartwatch that accurately tracks everything is going to cost a lot. Right now, though, Garmin is having a sale on the Vívoactive 4S, so you can get a watch that does it all for $270.

Advertisement

The Vívoactive 4S offers the basics like phone notifications, as well as fitness and health-oriented features like a heart-rate monitor. You can even look up animations for workout moves and some wild stuff like energy monitors and monitoring how stressed out you are. How does this watch know all that? I don’t know, but it’s pretty neat.

So if you’re in the market for a smartwatch, this is your best chance to grab a watch that knows more about you than probably even you do.

This RAVPower Filehub is a battery pack, an external storage device, and a portable WiFi router all rolled into one. You could say that it’s the perfect travel companion. Here’s what Whitson Gordon had to say about it on The Inventory:

You can see how things get a little complex here. The FileHub’s best use cases, in my opinion, require a little technical know-how on things like DLNA and SMB, so while it isn’t for everyone, it is useful, and has a pretty dedicated fanbase. I do wish the FileHub were a bit simpler to use, though—there’s no option to just connect to the computer over USB, for example, which seems like a big oversight. And seeing as this is not RAV’s first crack at the product line, you’d think they’d have a better handle on it by now.

But for all its little flaws and quirks, it’s still a unique product that could fit well into a lot of different workflows, for a pretty affordable price.

It’s normally priced at $56, but if you use our exclusive code KJFILEHU, you can pick up this super versatile hub for just $37. That’s the lowest price we’ve ever seen. This deal won’t last forever, so get yours before it disappears.

Just as you have to protect yourself from viral infections, you’ll also need to protect your devices. If you aren’t already squared away with one, an antivirus app is crucial when you’re working from home, and probably more so if you’re gaming—you’ve never felt the full wrath of a salty sore loser until you’ve provoked a network attack. Webroot will do the trick on up to three devices for up to two years, the subscription for which Amazon is selling for $50 in today’s Gold Box. It’s compatible with Mac, PC, iOS, Android, and even Chrome OS. The eight folks still using Linux need not apply.

One of the struggles of working from home is dealing with the sounds that are out of your control: a roommate fighting with their partner, neighbors who must make a living slamming doors, or even just the weekly trash pickup. They all make it tough to focus and get things done. A good pair of headphones, like the Beats Solo 3 on-ear headphones, can help alleviate some of that pain. And you can get them right now for $170.

These headphones sound great, they’re stylish, and with up to 40 hours of battery life per charge, you can be sure your new cans won’t die on you in the middle of your Zoom happy hour.

Silver lining: there’s a solution and it’s called the G2 antibacterial pen which is, the company says, “inherently microbial” since it’s made of brass.

If you’ve picked up on red meat consumption, you’ll need a good steak knife, especially if you prefer your cuts have the doneness of a chewed up rain boot. KYOKU’s knives have proven excellent for cutting into even the toughest of fleshy strands, and with so many in the steak family—sirloin, chuck, skirt, flank, porterhouse, rib-eye, t-bone, tenderloin—jeez, with so many different forms of steak, why isn’t that all we’re eating? And what kind of steak person are you anyway? Do you like to drown your meat in a vat of tangy substances, or do you pre—wait, what were we talking about? OH, RIGHT, STEAK KNIVES.

I don’t know how other people do it, but I need my eight hours of sleep. Sometimes, I need twelve hours of sleep. I’m a light sleeper, and if I don’t get enough sleep too often, I become an unproductive zombie. So trust me when I say Casper makes some great products to help you sleep, and right now you can save 10% by using the code GOODSNOOZE at checkout.

Casper is most well-known for their mattresses, but I want to point you attention to some of the other products they offer instead. Casper’s original pillow is one of the most comfy pillows I laid my head on, and with the sale it’s $59. Waking up without neck and shoulder tension is truly an amazing experience, and I’d highly recommend it. I haven’t tried the Glow Light out, but I’m tempted—like many I spend all day in front of computer and TV screens and have trouble falling asleep, and something that gets the melotonin flowing is a win in my book. $116 is worth it for a good night’s sleep!

Out of books to read yet? I’m not, but I can’t resist a good Kindle sale, and there’s a lot of them. This week, you can save big on some best-selling novels, and there are a lot of good choices in this particular selection.

I personally recommend The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, which is only $5 during this sale. It’s a great, honest self-help book. I haven’t read the sequel, Everything Is F*cked yet, but given the current state of the world, the title is apt and it’s only $5, so it’s probably a great read right now.

Just because many of us are on quarantine doesn’t mean we can’t go outside, even if “outside” is just that little plot of bonus land you call your backyard. If your house is like mine and the vegetation has been overrun by a vicious army of fire ants, however, then laying around in the grass simply won’t do. How about a hammock? They’re comfortable, relaxing, and Woot has them starting at $18 in a one-day sale. That price is for a 265-pound one-seater chair swing, but you can also get dual-adult 450-pound hammocks for $25. If you don’t have the luxury of perfectly-placed treets, you can buy a big spread model with an included hammock stand for $80. Now go and soak in all that glorious vitamin D.

Whether alkaline or tap, distilled or sparkling, water is a life source that all living organisms depend on, and it’s good to have a quality water bottle that’ll get you filled up without much hassle. That’s exactly what this Under Armour bottle promises with its one-handed button operation to expose the cap’s built-in straw. It can be yours for $13 after discounts at Amazon.

This bottle is actually manufactured by Thermos, but despite this, it isn’t a vacuum container, meaning it’s not designed to hold hot liquids, nor will it keep your cold ones chilled for long. It’s just a water bottle that can hold 24 ounces of the good stuff, but really, what more do you need?

If you’re in no rush for one, you can pick up this 1080p dash cam for just $30 on Amazon if you use code 4PG5DD2Q at checkout. This camera gives you all the basics you’ll need from a dash camera like night vision, a monitor that will turn on the camera if it senses motion, and a looped recorder that replaces old footage when the storage is full. You won’t get any fancy bells and whistles for the price, but it’ll get the job done.

TENS (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) massagers seem a bit like pseudoscience, but every time we post a deal on one of these things, we hear nothing but rave reviews. In fact, I use one occasionally after exercising, and it does seem to reduce muscle pain. At the very least, it feels cool, and these days, it’s imperative to use every destressor at your disposal.

This model from Auvon includes 20 modes and eight reusable pads (in two different sizes), far more than you’d get from most competitors. Just use promo code HI4YVIYA at checkout to get it for $25.

Everything’s a little crazy right now, but even while social distancing there’s one thing you can do if you take the right precautions—go hiking. If you need some gear for your next serious hike, then Steep & Cheap has you covered, with up to 65% off Mountain Hardwear brand items.

This includes items like the monster-sized Scrambler 25L Backpack, which should be big enough to carry everything you need for a full day of hiking away from society. It’s currently only $85! Or, you can grab something like this Rogers Pass Long-Sleeve Shirt, which doesn’t seem like the best hiking shirt but it looks nice.

For our safety, and for everyone else’s safety, we need to stay inside. However, staying inside for weeks on end isn’t feasible for most people. We need groceries and other supplies eventually! When you do go out, though, it’s important to wear a face mask, and you can buy one with a customizable pattern from Zazzle right now. If you use code TOGETHERZAZZ at checkout, you’ll save a few bucks, bringing the total to $11.

Now, this isn’t the N95 mask that’s recommended for medical professionals, but even a basic face mask like this can help protect those not in direct contact with COVID on a daily basis to stay safe. Or rather, you’re keeping others safe from your own germs, as these face masks are more designed to keep your germs in, not keep others’ out.

Finally, Zazzle’s line of face masks are customizable with any pattern you’d like, for no extra charge. Just know that the pattern will be obscured a bit by the sewn in flaps, so simple patterns are best.

Ok y’all. We know quarantine has been long, and it’s certainly has been lonely. Especially during the night. All of a sudden, all of your baes on the hotline are in their homes, not able to visit (for the greater good!), but that just means you have an even larger itch to scratch. Luckily, Bellesa has come through with the best fucking deal ever — they’re just...giving away a selection of vibrators FOR FREE. YES, you heard me. Free. They’re partnering with Womanizer to get everyone off (safely) throughout the COVID-19 crisis. So, I would try my luck and get an amazing vibe to take you to your peak without ever leaving your home. Orgasms during social distancing are what you make it (literally). Enter the give away and get off (over and over again)! And while you’re there, definitely check out the not-free collection, it’s dope, too!

You can’t hang out with your friends right now, but if you practice the right precautions, spending a little time outdoors is still totally fine. You’ll need to be sure you’ve got the right outfit, though, like Huckberry’s Flint and Tinder collection, which is 20% off now through Friday.

The collection’s look is inspired by the landscape of Joshua Tree National Park, which will make you feel like an adventurer, even if social distancing means you can’t stray too far from the house.

 TODAY’S BEST MEDIA DEALS

Since Diamond has suspended distribution of new comics and the industry is all but at a crawl now we turn to our friends at ComiXology. And as COVID has claimed another franchise causing the delay of No Time To Die. But with time and sales come opportunity. (You can also catch up on all those movies.)

Catch up on all of Dynamite’s James Bond lore now before the film’s release. The current run is written by Vita Ayala and Danny Lore is a real treat for fans young and old. The beautiful art is by Eric Gapstur and Erica D’Urso. Issues #5 and #6 are due next month so plenty of time to dive into this series.

I will personally recommend the Case Files volume which is 50% and all about how badass Moneypenny is.

With some issues as low as 99 cents have your personal Quartermaster fire up the Kindle and get these downloaded today.

Listen up, agent: like anything its size, the James Bond collection is like a junkyard. There’s a side that you just have no business venturing into, but if you can wade through the rusty crap, there’s a lot of value to be found. There are 24 films from the series all packed into one massive collection, and VUDU is letting that collection go for just $100.

Even better, all of it is remastered in 4K Ultra HD. From Russia With Love, Die Another Day, Goldfinger, GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies, Casino Royale—I could go on and on and on and on and on about some of the best Bond films, but you’re just going to have to watch them all yourself to figure out your own perfect cocktail (shaken, not stirred).

If you’re still not sold on the digital revolution and still prefer to amass collections of physical media, this Amazon sale is for you. You can get any two 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray from this list for $30. Normal prices for individual copies range from $17 to $25, so you’ll save money no matter which titles you get.

Batman fans, in particular, will find something to love here. Whether it’s the classic flair of Tim Burton’s Batman (1989), the successful trilogy-starting Batman Begins with a decidedly hoarse-throated Christian Bale, or even Arnold Schwarzeneggar’s ridiculous getup as Mr. Freeze in Batman & Robin, there’s a little bit from each major era of Batman cinematography. Just don’t buy Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice if you’re a diehard DC purist and you wish to retain your sanity. More here:

Oh, there’s also Detective Pikachu, Justice League, Fantastic Beasts, Wonder Woman, Creed II, and so much more.

Best Buy is the place to go for Star Wars steelbooks... which ends up being great if you can wait, because Best Buy also has a lot of sales on said steelbooks. Right now, the Star Wars: The Last Jedi steelbook is on sale for the low low price of $15, so if your collection has a Last Jedi shaped hole in it, you can fill it for less than the price of some DoorDash carryout.

Have you read any of the Pokemon Adventures manga? If not, you’re missing out. The Pokemon anime and manga are quite different, and the mange generally has the better plot beats so it’s worth looking into even if you hate the anime. Amazon currently has a lot of the Pokemon Adventures box sets on discount, so now is the perfect time to jump in.

Advertisement

The box set on the biggest discount is probably the Gold and Silver box set, which is only $30 for seven volumes, but there is a catch. At least early on, the Pokemon Adventure manga was a continuous story, so without the first seven volumes you’d probably be a little lost. The first seven volumes are slightly discounted at $50, but if you’ve taken advantage of a previous sale on the first box set, you’re read to go with the second set. Or, you can just grab the Gold and Silver box set now and wait for the rest of the sets to hit a deeper discount!

Amazon is giving away three months of access to its increasingly impressive music service, after which you’ll be asked to pay $8 monthly to continue. That’s cheaper than most others, though, and you may like what you find after signup.

Amazon has one of the most extensive catalogs with over 60 million tracks, and the mobile app supports Alexa and all the devices she loves to dwell in, so you don’t have to move an inch in bed to start that morning routine playlist.

Marvel’s Spider-Man might just be one of the best PlayStation 4 exclusives of this generation. And now, you can get the game, plus its three bonus chapters of DLC, all for $15 from Best Buy. It’s a small price to pay for that rare game that makes you feel like Spider-Man.

Can’t wait for the disc? It’s also on sale at the PlayStation Store, but you’ll have to fork over another $5.

If you’re super clumsy like I am, you might want to take steps to protect your handheld electronics. Well, you’re in luck. For a low $9, you can get your hands on a two-pack of tempered glass screen protectors, that’ll keep your precious Nintendo Switch from the bumps and bruises of constant playing and sometimes falling off your couch or bed.

Now that we’ve all been working from home for a month or so it still might be a challenge. Having to be a bit of our own IT department at times can be trying, but fear not! Humble Bundle would love to lend a hand with a few issues we know you can handle. For the next 20 days, they’ve got your technical bases covered all valued at $693.

It’s not all work though. They’ve managed to sneak a few games because you deserve to play also. This is a great opportunity if you are looking for software to aid with encryption, password protection, storage backup, and even WordPerfect Office.

As always at each tier donations will be made to charitable organizations. This bundle is no different and will be supporting those that are helping with the response to COVID-19.

If you’re looking for something new to play, check out Amazon’s Electronic Arts sale, where tons of EA’s PC games are heavily discounted today. In the $5 range, we have great games like the whacky shooter Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, and World War 1 shooter Battlefield 1. (You can also get Battlefield V—which tells stories from WW2—for $16.) Missing football? Fill the void with Madden 20 for $20. There’s also multiplayer fun in Star Wars Battlefront II for $15, and if you’re more of a solo saber user, Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order delivers an original story with tight gameplay and visuals for $36. Peruse the full selection at Amazon right here.

There’s just something super cool about playing as an assassin. Sneaking through areas, getting that satisfying shot and sneaking away undetected... or at least, so I heard. I’m horrible at sneaking around, so my time with stealth games tend to just be running away from authorities, yet again. Anyway, if you want to be play as a gun-for-hire, Hitman 2: Gold Edition is on sale at Target for $55, for both the PS4 and Xbox One.

That might seem a little expensive, but the Gold Edition includes the expansion pass, which retails for $40 on its own. It’s a great deal for a content-complete version of the game.

If you haven’t already checked out Nintendo Labo on your Nintendo Switch, we don’t blame you. It’s tons of fun and changes the way you play your Nintendo Switch, but ultimately, you’re paying $40 for slabs of cardboard (and, to be fair, the quirky games they’re designed for). That’s not true at Best Buy today, though, which has several Labo Toy-Con kits on sale for $20, including the VR Starter Kit + Blaster, the robot kit (that’s cool as all hell, but kind of looks like a poor man’s Bowflex), a vehicle kit with controls perfect for land, sea, and air, and a variety kit that can be used as a fishing pole, a piano, steering bars for a motorbike, and more.

For the unaware, Nintendo Labo Kits feature two-pronged fun. First, you assemble the cardboard controls into whichever mode you fancy, and then you stick your Switch hardware inside and play simple, yet deceivingly fun games with a control scheme more involved than your typical frantic button-pressing.

Keza MacDonald sums it up perfectly in her Kotaku review:

Kids and adults get different things out of Labo, depending not just on age but personality. The more complex models might lose the attention of younger children, but older ones (and parents) will be driven to find out how they work. It is very much a family activity, because whether each person is most interested in playing games, making the models, coming up with new inventions or customizations, or delving into programming principles, everyone has something to offer.

If you missed out on the various pre-order deals and bonuses for the Resident Evil 3 remake, it’s not too late to save, at least if you’re on PC. CDKeys has Steam codes for the game going for just $42, and that includes the classic costume DLC for Jill and Carlos that you only get for pre-ordering. Now, while you’re installing, I suggest doing some price research on bulk pampers, because you’ll probably shit yourself in the first encounter with Nemesis.
