Praise the deal gods (and the Kinja product team), you can now jump between categories in this post using these links below. You’ll see the navigation controls at the top of each section.
If you’re still listening to your TV through its built-in speakers, or are just ready to upgrade your sound system to surround sound, Amazon’s got a pair of nice deals from Yamaha today.
I suspect more of you will be interested in this sound bar for $90. It doesn’t have a wireless subwoofer, but it does have two integrated woofers inside the bar, so you’ll get decent bass in a very small package. It is refurbished, but today’s deal is about $60 less than buying it new.
If you prefer building your home theater system the old fashioned way, this 7.2 channel receiver has never been cheaper than $340. It has pretty much every feature you could want in a receiver, including Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, plus Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, AirPlay, and some built-in music apps.
Sony’s MDR line of Bluetooth headphones sold like gangbusters during Black Friday, but if you were holding out for noise cancelling models, Amazon’s rewarding your patience today with the biggest discount ever on the top-of the line MDR1000x.
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 even LDAC Hi-Res audio compatibility. But the secret sauce here is noise cancellation, including a special mode that lets ambient voices through either at all times, or just when you cup a hand over the right earcup. $228's still a solid chunk of change, but it’s rare to see these dip below $300, let alone this low.
There’s no need to wait for Black Friday to save on Bose headphones; their deals are already starting to go live, including all-time low prices on these wireless models.
If you’re not yet totally opposed to buying wired headphones, there’s are deals available for you as well, including the noise cancelling QuietComfort 25s.
Apple’s MacBooks only have two ports these days: USB-C and a headphone jack. And while USB-C is definitely a good thing, the world might not be quite ready to ditch all of our old connectors. Luckily, this $30 dongle can turn one of those USB-C ports into four standard USB ports, an HDMI port, and a USB-C passthrough for power.
I would suggest keeping a couple of pairs of emergency headphones in your carry-on, laptop bag, and gym bag. These Panasonic ear buds are just $7 today (down from their usual $10) and have a very impressive 4.3 star rating with 51,000 reviews. I don’t think these headphones will have life-changing sound quality, but they’ll definitely work in a pinch and would make great stocking stuffers.
$38 gets you the Yi Dash Cam today, down from its usual $50 with promo code MAVWC29E. The key feature here is 1080p/60 recording, compared to the 1080/30 you normally see in this price range. That means you have twice as many frames to get a clear shot of a license plate. Its f/1.8 aperture, 165 degree FOV, and 2.7" screen are nothing to sneeze at either.
What gift do you get for the gadget lover who already has everything? A bag to carry their gadgets, of course. The Zero Grid Electronics Travel Organizer is bursting with pockets, straps, and zippers to keep all of your tech gear organized and untangled while you’re on the road. Get it for an all-time low $19 today with code ZGCR9DY3.
The ultra-popular Nest Learning Thermostat 3.0 is down to $195 today at Rakuten with promo code NEST34, which is the best discount we’ve ever seen. Early Black Friday ads indicate that these will be going for $200 (as per usual) around the holidays, so there’s no reason to wait.
Aukey’s newest battery pack isn’t much thicker than your smartphone, and yet it’s packing 20,000mAh of power, three USB output ports, a USB-C input/output port, and even a Lightning input port so you can recharge it with your Apple gear. Get it for $32 with promo code AUKEYPY4.
HDTV bias lights are nothing new to our readers, but with three length options, 15 color modes, a color-changing fade setting, and two different control inputs, Luminoodle is probably the most polished option out there.
For a limited time, you can choose from all three lengths (there’s a guide to help you pick on the product page) for 25% off with promo code M89UHFGT. If you aren’t familiar, these ease eyestrain when watching TV at night, improve your TV’s perceived contrast, and just look really cool. Needless to say, this would make for a creative holiday gift as well.
Giant plugs that cover up half the outlets on your power strip should be outlawed, but until that day arrives, these short extension cords will have to do. $14 gets you a pack of 10, which should be enough for even the most advanced home theater setups.
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 to get a special two year plan for $79 with code 2YSpecial2017, or this link to get three years for $99 with code 3ydeal. Lifehacker has recommended Nord in some previous guides, but if you have any firsthand experience with the service, sound off in the comments!
The Logitech Harmony Hub is one of the best Alexa-compatible accessories out there, and it basically comes with a free Echo Dot right now.
If you aren’t familiar, the Harmony Hub is a little puck that blasts out RF signals like a TV remote to control all of your devices (Logitech’s database has nearly 300,000; it’s pretty comprehensive). Normally, this would work with a Harmony remote to control devices that are hidden behind cabinet doors, but it’ll also work with just your voice if you own an Alexa device.
So, for example, you could say “Alexa, turn on the TV” to turn on your TV, change to the correct input, turn on your cable box, or whatever else you programmed it to do. The same holds true for your smartphone; just open the Harmony app, and you’ll have full control over your entire home theater.
The Harmony Hub costs about $90 on Amazon (though it’s sometimes bundled with a barebones remote for about $70), but right now, that same amount of money will get you the Hub and an Echo Dot to control it. Or, if you already have all the Echoes you need, just give the Dot away as a holiday gift, and keep the Hub for yourself.
You don’t need to sell a kidney to afford noise-cancelling Bluetooth headphones; these 4 star-rated Cowin E-7s are just $40 right now, or $30 off with promo code 9H9778YO.
They might not have the brand recognition of Sony or Bose, but these headphones pack in 30 hours of battery life, and yes, active noise cancellation that reviewers say works really well.
The Krinner Christmas Tree Genie carries a 4.7 star rating and an Amazon top seller badge, and it’s easy to see why. It can adjust to hold trunks between 1" and 7" in diameter, it closes with the press of a foot pedal, and even features a built-in water level indicator so your tree doesn’t dry out as quickly as your holiday spirit.
$80 isn’t chump change, but it is the best price of 2017 on a product that you’ll reuse year after year, so it’s probably something worth investing in.
We see our fair share of deals on air compressors and car battery jump starters, but these discounted Stanley gadgets can do both. I’ve had one in my trunk for years, and it’s saved me from a dead battery on more than one occasion. Plus, being able to inflate my tires at home is so much less stressful than finding a bunch of quarters and driving to a gas station.
You might not have an immediate need for a pressure washer, but if you own a home, it’s a useful thing to stash in the back or your garage. For a limited time, Amazon’s marked down a popular GreenWorks washer down to $98 for Prime members, within $9 of an all-time low. Just be sure to get yours before this deal is blasted away.
A lot of people are reflexively appalled by the idea of a bidet, which makes no sense, because they’re amazing. Today on Amazon, you can score one from Oak Leaf for $22 with promo code LRBL9CPC, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on one of these.
That’s basically nothing for a product you’ll use (hopefully) every day, but this deal could sell out any time though, so purchase or get off the pot.
If you’re unfamiliar, Cricuts make all those custom stickers, delicate doilies, and Instagram-ready greeting cards you see around your crafty friend’s house. You too can start being a craft wizard today with Amazon’s sale on this popular Cricut Explore Air 2 machine.
Let’s talk about the cool stuff it can do: It can print any design you create in Photoshop/Illustrator/etc. or you can select a design for its extensive library. You can design and print on the go, using Cricut’s app on your phone or tablet. It’s strong enough to cut through a bunch of different materials like faux leather, vinyl, and speciality paper. Lastly, the Explore Air 2 prints faster and has more color options than the first model.
It typically sells for just $250, but is down to $210 today. So get this and go fulfill your dream of opening up that Etsy shop!
Phillips’ insanely popular Wake-Up Light is here to change your life. This is the best model in the lineup, and includes an FM radio and five different natural sounds to wake up to. Grab it right now on Amazon for $99 after clipping the $20 coupon, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen.
Unlike an unsympathetic traditional alarm clock, the Philips Wake-Up Light eases you awake with a gradually-brightening light that simulates a natural sunrise, which is how humans are designed to wake up anyway. After the light gets you out of your REM cycle and ready to wake up, an audible alarm will finish the job at the time of your choosing. Plus, it also doubles as a very warm and pleasant reading light as you’re getting ready to go to sleep.
Sugarfina makes fancy candy. Fancy candy that is priced to be fancy. But the Champagne Bears are phenomenal, the packaging is top-notch, and sometimes you just really need to treat yourself. Even better, Sugarfina is having a Friends & Family sale where basically all of it is 20% off with the code SUGARFAM. You’re welcome.
P.S.: They also make really, really great gifts, especially when you create a Candy Bento Box.
Thanksgiving is one week away, where’s your turkey baster? Just 30 cents away from its all-time-low price, this turkey baster set complete with a barbecue basting brush, a meat marinade injector, and a cleaning brush is just $8 today. So even if you don’t subscribe to the probably out-dated practice of basting your Thanksgiving turkey, with all those add-ons, you will use it all year.
This 3-pack of measuring cups normally sells for $20, but it’s just $16 today, which is a really good deal when you consider that one cup alone usually costs $8.
OXO makes measuring cups with the measurements conveniently angled so you can read how much you have by looking down into the cup, rather than squatting to get level with the counter. I have had these cups for years and they still look brand new, just make sure if you’re going to put them in the dishwasher, put them on the top rack.
Our readers have bought thousands of entry-level Roomba 650s, but today we’ve spotted an all-time low price on the upgraded 690, which adds a few much-needed features.
As far as vacuuming performance goes, this should be essentially identical to the 650; the difference all comes down to connectivity. Built-in Wi-Fi allows you to schedule and start the Roomba from anywhere via a smartphone app, or even control it with your voice via Amazon Alexa or Google Home.
I know “smart” features on a lot of products are basically just an excuse to charge more, but as a Roomba owner, I think these make a ton of sense. I can tell you from experience that programming a Roomba without an app is something I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy, and the ability to start it remotely means you can run the Roomba while you’re out of the house, and come back to clean floors.
Today’s $275 deal is an all-time low, and a match for what we were expecting to see on Black Friday, so there’s no reason to wait.
Update: The high-end Roomba 980 has also dropped to its Black Friday price of $800 a little early. Needless to say, that is not cheap, but compared to the 690, it’s a significantly stronger vacuum, and has a suite of sensors that can map your house, and even show you on an app which rooms it’s cleaned, and which it still needs to get to.
Forget trying to find quarters under your car seat and paying way too much for 3 minutes of air, and get this $16 tire inflator with code UG4JAQAG. You can fill up your tires whenever and wherever you please for free. Keeping your tires properly inflated helps improve gas mileage so this guy will basically pay for itself. It would also be great for bike tires.
Add about 40 feet of LED string lights into your life for just $5 with code NGEOJPAK. They plug in via USB port so you can take advantage of those USB wall ports you’ve been buying (or buy some more for $14 with code ICWALL77). This is an extremely good deal for two sets and might make your home’s holiday decor look that much better.
Put a lid on almost anything with this 7 pack of silicone stretch lids. They expand over your bowls, pans, and containers to create an air-tight, leak-proof seal and are way easier than using sticky plastic wrap. They’re dishwasher safe and the reviews on these are pretty solid. At $14 today, this is the rock-bottom price we’ve seen so it shouldn’t too much of a stretch on your wallet.
If you’re the type to carry around a blade on the daily, you’ll be happy to know your options just got even more portable. Like, keychain levels of portable. Snag the excellent WESN Titanium Microblade for 40 bucks with a Kickstarter preorder.
The WESN has already sliced and diced its funding goal many times over, and also acts as a bottle opener and screwdriver.
Amazon’s running a new fitness-focused Gold Box to help you stay active through the holidays, this time with a solid selection of Under Armour apparel for men, women, and kids all marked down to great low prices.
Head over to Amazon, and you’ll find deals on shorts, tops, sneakers, and more. Just note that lots of the items have multiple color options once you get to their product pages, and that these prices are only available today, so you may want to run.
Mavericks makes some of our favorite men’s shaving cream and grooming supplies, and you can save 20% on the item of your choice today with promo code 20OFFNOV2017.
Shane has been using Mavericks for awhile, and they sent me a few products to try a few weeks ago. After and entire life of dragging a soapy loofa across my face in the shower, their BUFF and WASH products have been a revelation.
If reliability is something you crave in a pair of shoes (if it isn’t, you may need to reconsider), I bet you have Cole Haan in your closet. And if you’re looking for a new pair but don’t want to spend the normal asking price, Amazon is knocking down two classic styles to just $100. Grab a pair of Kennedy Wingtip Boots or the uber-popular ZERØGRAND Oxford in any color you’d like while they’re on sale, today only.
REI is about to make you that more inclined to get outside. Right now, you can grab up to 30% off gear from Patagonia, Arc’teryx, Sorel, REI C-Op, and more during their Gear Up, Get Out sale. There’s everything from camping, to paddling, to hiking, to cycling, and everything in between. It’ll take some time to sort through everything, so you’d better get started now.
Plus, if you’re a member, use the code GEARUP20 and get 20% off any single full-price item, and an extra 20% off any REI Garage item.
I know people are skeptical about Bluetooth-connected apps for devices that have existed without them for decades, but the Sonicare app is actually really cool. From Shane’s Gear review:
It’s good then the app is amazing, and changes the toothbrushing game if you actually use it. The Connected app tracks where you’re brushing (and not brushing), how long you brush for, where you’re using too much force, and more. The app will also keep track of when you need to replace brush heads, and your dentist can even use the app to view your brushing data and make notes of where you need to make changes.
In terms of the brush itself, you get basically every feature under the sun—this is the top-of-the-line in the Sonicare family, after all—including that awesome wireless charging cup.
Three different colors of the DiamondClean are marked down to all-time low prices today, and have a $30 coupon available, which makes these deals truly fantastic. Unfortunately, those prices vary by color, so you’ll get the best deal if you go with pink (think of it as a pink tax refund), followed closely by the white model, while the black model comes in at $11 more.
Improve flexibility and stretch out sore muscles with this Yoga EVO elastic stretching strap. Providing leverage to pull yourself into a deeper stretch, straps can increase your range of motion and are great for exercising while traveling since they can easily fit in a suitcase. This Yoga EVO strap normally sells for $18, but is just $14 today, and would make a great gift for a fitness-minded friend.
When it comes to figuring out what your skin needs, Dr. Brandt skincare is where it’s at, plus they know how to work a viral internet product. Their magnetic face mask blew up across blogs and Instagram stories, and right now you can pick it up, plus anything else you could need, for 45% off with the code VIP45.
You’re never going to remember to floss consistently. And that’s okay! But investing in a water flosser will encourage you to clean between your teeth, and this one from VAVA is only $20 today, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on a product like this.
Continuing in the grand tradition of Kickstarter wallets, the FOCX Everyday Wallet packs a ton of cards into a clever, minimal package.
The FOCX is basically split into two compartments: One that loads from either side, and another that loads from the top, with a pull-tab to get your cards back out. The idea is that your most-used cards and cash go into the former, while up to 10 other cards can squeeze into the latter, but you can arrange things however you want. Most of the wallet is made of elastic to hold everything in place, but it’s accented by a wide strip of leather to lend it a more premium feel than, say, a TGT wallet.
There’s only about a week left in the campaign, but you can still order a FOCX for about $28, with estimated delivery in February.
“No-iron shirts” have been around for so long that it seems almost ridiculous to buy anything else. Twillory takes that notion one step further by taking that no-iron notion and adding a bespoke feel.
Their holiday deals just officially went live with the following codes:
- Two shirts for $89 with code SAVE2 (~$45 per shirt)
- Four shirts for $169 with code SAVE4 (~$42 per shirt)
- Five shirts for $199 with code SAVE5 (~$40 per shirt)
Those codes should work with all the shirts they sell, so mix, match, and get creative. Shane reviewed these shirts over on Gear, so head over there to learn about what makes them so great.
This audiobook version of The Hobbit won’t put even a hobbit-sized hole in your wallet. At just $4, you can listen along to Bilbo’s unexpected adventure while you’re cleaning, driving, or cooking all six of your daily meals.
Travel back in time with the Kindle version of 90+ history titles today. All of these books are under $5 and most are around $3. Some of the more popular titles include the inspiration for the 2017 Christopher Nolan movie, Dunkirk, a story about the opening of the American west, and a tale of friendship in occupied France.
Back in 2009, The AV Club named a 2005 episode of HBO’s Rome one of the best TV episodes of the decade. If you missed it the first time or need a refresher after these 12 years, you can get this
