Today’s Best Tech Deals

RAVPower 45W USB C PD Charger with GaN Tech | $30 | Amazon | Clip coupon on page
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

RAVPower’s 45W USB-C charger was one of the first to market this year that used GaN components instead of silicon, allowing it to be smaller and lighter without overheating.

Its uniquely slim design and bottom-facing port makes it ideal for sticking behind furniture, and it’s also one of the best chargers I’ve used in those notoriously loose airport and airplane AC outlets. For a limited time, get it for $30 after you clip the coupon on the page.


Steadicam Volt Handheld Gimbal Stabilizer | $80 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Create buttery smooth video on your smartphone with this $80 Steadicam Volt gimbal. Like other gimbal/stabilizer devices, this device effectively removes shake from your videos which makes the footage you shoot a lot more professional.

This $80 price is the lowest we’ve ever seen. So, if you are an aspiring mobile videographer, don’t let the curtains close before you pick one up.

Razer Ornata Chroma Mecha-Membrane Keyboard | $60 | Amazon

Razer’s Ornata keyboard is all about compromise, the right kind. And for $60, it’s also a steal.

This keyboard combines the long travel of a mechanical keyboard and the relative quietness of a membrane-style keyboard.

In his review, Kotaku’s Mike Fahey said the “spring of the membrane coupled with that lovely mechanical click and the half-eight keys mean my fingers fly across this thing. It feels like they are being actively propelled from key to key.”

It’s currently a few bucks off the lowest price we’ve seen. This is my keyboard at home and I love it.

Logitech Harmony Smart Control with Harmony Hub | $54 | Amazon

$54 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 $54 is a pretty terrific deal, even if it was as cheap as $45 back around the holidays.


Acer Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Today’s Gold Box is discounting a number of Acer computers and peripherals for work and play, today only. Inside, you’ll find a number of monitors, laptops, keyboards, headphones, monitors and gaming mice.

Those looking to upgrade their gaming rig have a lot of options from Acer’s gaming line, Predator. The mice are particularly good deals: $34 Cestus gaming mouse matches its price from Black Friday and it’s hard to complain about a $10 gaming mouse from a reputable company.

Just be warned, like all Gold Box deals, these prices will only stick around until the end of the day.



Today’s Best Home Deals

Excalibur Food Dehydrator | $192 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Have you tried to buy jerky lately? It’s expensive as hell! Luckily, you can make your own at home with this $192 highly-rated Excalibur food dehydrator. It boasts 15 square feet of dehydrating surface area, and of course, can be used to make your own dried herbs, fruits, and vegetables.

From our deal researcher, Corey:

We own the dehydrator that’s on sale. I don’t think I’ve used store-bought chili powder, basil, dill, oregano, thyme, or a dozen other herbs and spices in the last two years. The Excalibur is legit in a dehydrator class of its own.

This deal will only last through the end of the day or until product sells out, so don’t wait for the sale to dry up.


Extra 10% Off Miir Products | Amazon | Promo code KinjaDeals30
Photo: Miir

From growlers and howlers to tumblers and camp cups, Miir makes some of our favorite drinkware around, whether you’re hauling it into the backcountry, or sipping from it at home.

Today on Amazon, most of their wares (including the wine bottle and wine tumbler, which are usually excluded from these sales) are about 25% off their regular prices (prices vary a bit by color, in some cases), and our readers can save an extra 10% on anything they sell with promo code KinjaDeals30. We’ll toast to that. A few favorites are below (along with their deal prices), but you can also just head over to Miir’s Amazon storefront and browse from there.

Bonus: Don’t miss out on the Limited Edition designs, which feature great artwork and bold colors.


Cuisinart 12" Chicken Fryer, Blue | $65 | Woot
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Pick up a 12" chicken fryer from Cusinart for a low $65 today. For some perspective, this same model is $130 on Amazon right now. It’s deeper than your average cast iron pan and enameled for looks and extra durability.


1st Generation Echo Show | $70 | Woot
Photo: Amazon

Its 7" screen isn’t as big as the new model, and it’s not the most attractive gadget ever designed, but the original Echo Show is still a great smart home hub, and it’s particularly tempting at just $70.

This deal is only available today from Woot, and is currently out of stock on Amazon.


25% Off Sitewide | Hydro Flask | Discount shown at checkout. Use code COLDH20 for free upgraded shipping
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Vacuum-insulated bottles can keep drinks hot or cold all day long, and Hydro Flask makes some of the most popular options out there. Their wares don’t go on sale often, but from now through the Fourth of July, the entire site is 25% off, with the discount taken automatically at checkout. Every cooler, every coffee mug, every limited edition bottle, and every tumbler in every color imaginable is on sale (except for MyHydro custom bottles and the Journey Series), so drink up.

Bonus: Use promo code COLDH20 for free upgraded shipping at checkout.


Thermapen Mk4 | $79 | ThermoWorks | Red, white, and blue only

Outdoor barbecues will be back before you know it, and you can be ready for that (and all of your other cooking needs) with a 15% discount on the best kitchen thermometer money can buy: the Thermapen Mk4.

You guys love the Thermapen because it displays the temperature in 2 - 3 seconds, has a 3,000 hour battery life, is waterproof, and is accurate within 0.7°F. Step back into the kitchen in just about any nice restaurant, and you’ll probably see some ThermoWorks gear in use.

Here are just a few readers gushing over it:

Thermapen Classic (or really any of the Thermapens). Bar none the best thermometer for cooking I have ever bought — accept no substitutes.

Somewhat expensive at ~$70-$120 range, but I’ve been using mine for years and years, and it still gives me an accurate reading in less than three seconds. Well, well worth the price. Especially excellent for the grill. - theburners

Without a doubt. No other thermometer comes close. I’ve said it before on Kinja that the Thermapen is the best piece of kitchen equipment I’ve ever bought. - the-return-of-samba00

This model doesn’t see significant discounts very often, and even then, deals on every available color are even rarer.


Kitchy Pizza Cutter Wheel | $11 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

It’s a unitasker, I know, but there’s just no good substitute for a pizza cutter wheel, and this model from Kitchy is one of the most popular and highly rated (4.8 stars! 2,900 reviews!) you can buy.

The green model is down to $11 from its usual $14 today, so you’ll have a few bucks leftover to buy more pizza. Just save me a slice.


Gooloo Mini Air Compressor | $10 | Amazon | Promo code 9XNRBQ52

While it’s certainly not as fast as the coin-operated air compressor at a gas station, this glove box-friendly compressor can save your bacon if you have to change a tire, or just can’t be bothered to find a bunch of quarters. And speaking of quarters, it’ll only cost 32 of them with promo code 9XNRBQ52.

Advertisement

This one’s powered by plugging into your car’s power outlet, so if you have a flat tire and a dead battery, it might be time to call AAA (and possibly eat some CBD gummies). But hey, it’s $8 and can save you a lot of headaches.

eufy BoostIQ RoboVac 11S | $150 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Eufy makes some of our readers’ favorite vacuums, and this RoboVac 11s is down to just $150. The 11S is super quiet, slim, and it sucks up anything in its path with ease. This current price matches the best price we’ve ever seen on this particular model.

While convenient, robovacs won’t completely replace your main vacuum. But you can go a lot longer without having to do the job yourself.

Advertisement

Just be warned, this is a Gold Box deal. Which means this discount will only last until the end of the day or until sold out. So pick one up before it disappears... or else that’ll really suck.


Up to 45% off Select DEWALT Power Tools and Accessories | Home Depot
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

Having tools in your household is pretty important, even if you’re not that savvy at home repairs and construction. At a minimum, a screwdriver and tape measure are always good to have on hand. If you require a lot more tools than the absolute basics, Home Depot is having a huge sale on DEWALT tools and accessories today. You can scoop up savings of up to 45% on select DEWALT products. You can get 20-Volt MAX Lithium-Ion Cordless Hammer Drill/Impact Driver Combo Kit (pictured above) for $229.

Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Pick up a new pair of Ray-Bans from Nordstrom Rack, right now. Dozens of styles are discounted and, well, it’s summer. You’ll probably want one to go with your tan and that slight hangover you’re going to have.

Don’t forget, they’re not just fashionable—they’re also helpful in shielding your eyes from ugly people. Prices start at about $60, so start looking before the sun sets on this deal.


All Men’s, Women’s, and Aerie Clearance Under $20 | American Eagle
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

Sure, the Fourth of July isn’t actually until next week, but that doesn’t mean the sales aren’t already upon us. All clearance is under $20 at American Eagle right now, including Men’s, Women’s, and Aerie. It is a great time to stock up on those AE Heathered flex t-shirts that are only available online, while they’re only $10. On top of the clearance sale, all swimsuits are BOGO and all shorts are 40-50% off.

These particular glasses sell for around $80-$100 elsewhere, so this a particularly good buy. And don’t be scared off by the not-so-mainstream storefront; you can use Amazon and Paypal to checkout.


Gaiam Restore Pressure Point Massage Roller | $8 | Amazon
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

Got a kink in your neck from lifting something a little too heavy, or getting too confident in your yogi abilities? You might want to get yourself a massage roller to use after every workout or after a night of sleeping a little funny. Right now, you can grab the Gaiam Restore Pressure Point Massage Roller for $8 on Amazon.


Cole Haan Grand Summer Sale

Cole Haan is definitely a brand that can make you think twice on account of the price. So when they kick off a Fourth of July sale, it’s the perfect time to act.

Hundreds of popular products are on sale for up to 60% off, including a few of our favorites: 2.ZERØGRANDs starting at $80, the sweater-like ZERØGRANDs with Stitchlite wool for $70, the versatile All-Day Trainer with Stitchlite, and a whole lot more.

OFF! Deep Woods Insect Repellent 4 oz. 2-Pack | $9 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Bugs and mosquitoes are undefeated in the summer, but you can at least make yourself a difficult target with this discounted OFF! Deep Woods value pack. $9 gets you two bottles of 25% deet spray, down from the usual $10-$11.

You can also get extra savings if you use Subscribe & Save, and just cancel after your first delivery if you don’t need any more.


30% Off Travel, 30% Off Fireworks Paisley, and 40% Off Summer Sale | Vera Bradley
Photo: Vera Bradley

You might remember Very Bradley as the brand of the paisley quilted tote carried by your great aunt, but in recent years, the retailer has expanded their prints beyond florals into more modern patterns. And I must admit, their solid bags, duffels, pouches, and other travel accessories are downright stylish. So consider taking advantage of the brand’s three different sales for the 4th of July. You can shop 30% off travel, 30% off the Fireworks Paisley pattern, and the 40% Off Summer Sale on select styles and patterns. There’s a reason that tote from years back is so memorable; these bags hold up. And there are patterns to please any taste — yes, including good ol’ paisley.


TODAY’S BEST MEDIA DEALS

Four Months of Amazon Music Unlimited | $1 | Amazon | New members only
Graphic: Amazon

At $8 per month for Prime members, Amazon Music Unlimited was already more affordable than Spotify Premium or Apple Music, but Amazon’s sweetening the pot for new members by offering four months for $1, for a limited time as part of the company’s lead-up to Prime Day.

This deal is even available to non-Prime members, though it’ll renew at $10 per month instead of $8. But either way, four months to stream the new Vampire Weekend and Carly Rae Jepsen on repeat for free? Yes please.

If you love to read, this is a great chance to sample the service without fully committing. The deal is exclusive to new Kindle Unlimited subscribers, and for Prime members only

If you’ve never been an Audible member, you can still get your first three months for $15. But if you’ve been a member in the past, or you’re just ready to commit for a longer period of time, Prime Members can also save big on an annual membership as part of Amazon’s lead up to Prime Day.

For a limited time, Prime members can get an annual membership for $120, down from the usual $150, or $180 if you paid month-by-month. Plus, once you sign up, you’ll receive an email with a credit to get an Echo Dot to listen to your books with for just $.99.

As a reminder, every month, Audible members can choose one audiobook and two Audible originals to add to their library for free, and those titles will be yours to keep, even if you cancel your membership somewhere down the road.


Marvel Encyclopedia | $22 | Amazon
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

Avengers: Endgame is coming back to theaters two months after its initial release, but we still have gotten over watching it the first time yet. If you’re still trying to wrap your head around the end of an era, you can dive even deeper into the Marvel universe with this encyclopedia. For just $22, you can learn more about favorite characters like Spider-Man, Black Panther, Captain America, and of course, Iron Man. The Marvel Encyclopedia has a special touch, as the introduction was written by Mr. Marvel himself, Stan Lee.


3-Month Subscription to Audible | $15 | Amazon
Screenshot: Amazon

It really does pay to be an Amazon Prime member. As Prime Day(s) rapidly approaches, Amazon has a new limited-time, exclusive deal. You can get three months of Audible for the price of one. That’s right, it is only $5/month (or $15 total) for a three-month subscription to Audible. The only catch? It is only for Amazon Prime members and only available to new Audible users.

Each month, you can download two Audible originals, and one audiobook of your choice for free, each of which will be yours to keep forever, even if you cancel your membership. Individual audiobooks frequently cost $15 or more, so you stand to save a lot on the latest hits.
