Update: The code is dead, but you can still get a single Echo for $50 off, today only.
Amazon’s taking $50 off the Echo today, which would be pretty interesting if not for the fact that they were $90 off a couple weeks ago for Prime Day.
However....this deal stacks (at least for now) with Amazon’s $100 discount when you buy two and use code ECHO2PACK, meaning you can get two Echoes for just $80 each, an all-time low. Even if you have absolutely no need for them, it might be worth buying up a bunch at that price to give away as gifts during the holidays.
That gets you Logitech’s darkfield laser tracking that works on any surface (including glass), a unifying USB receiver, and an incredibly comfortable design.
Mpow basically invented the $20 Bluetooth earbud market, and now that paltry sum can get you a set over wireless over-ears too.
Most laptops don’t have CD drives anymore, which is mostly fine, except for that one time that inevitably pops up every year or two where you really wish you had one. Now, you can for just $22, no extra power cable required.
Anker’s PowerPort+ 5 charging hub is ostensibly designed as a superior replacement for your USB-C MacBook charger—it’s one of the few third party charging hubs that can feed a full 29W to the laptop, just like its included power brick—but it’s a great accessory if you own any USB-C-powered devices.
Yi makes your favorite budget action cam, and right now its 4K sibling is just $159 with the code YI4KWNX7, the best price we’ve seen. Jillian got a chance to test this guy out on the rapids of the Hudson River, and it offers a ton of bang for the buck.
Anker’s PowerLine cables are our readers’ favorite way to charge, and iPhone owners can upgrade on the cheap today. Get two 6' cables (which are great for charging while you lounge around on the couch) for $18, no promo code required.
Just when you thought you’d seen it all when it comes to Lightning cables, iClever went and made one that’s braided on the outside with stainless steel. And yes, it’s as great as it sounds.
Obviously, this won’t be as flexible as a rubber or nylon-coated cable, but it’s impossible to tangle, and should stand up to even the most reckless iPhone owner. Plus, it just looks really damn cool. It’s a tough sell at $15, but for a limited time, you can try one out for $9 with promo code ICCABLE3.
For a limited time, Anker’s offering up big discounts on their popular GlassGuard screen protectors for some of the most popular gadgets out there. Just find what you need on this post, and be sure to note the promo code (where applicable).
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!

Bar none, Sport-Brella is the ultimate beach umbrella, and Amazon’s discounting the blue model for just $34 today, the best price we’ve ever seen.
Unlike a regular umbrella, Sport-Brella leans backwards and attaches to the sand with stakes, creating a kind of semi-private cocoon with enough space for a couple of chairs and a cooler. Best of all, it sets up in about five minutes (once you know what you’re doing), and can provide a full day’s worth of privacy and sun protection.
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 a Luxe Bidet Neo 120 that will work with just about any toilet for just $32, one of the best prices we’ve seen.
That’s basically nothing for a product you’ll use (hopefully) every day, and it’s particularly good for a model with a self-cleaning and retracting nozzle, let alone one with a 4.6 star average on over 5,000 reviews. This deal could sell out any time though, so purchase or get off the pot.
Unless you have a fully furnished guest bedroom, an air mattress is just one of those things you should own, and this highly-rated Intex queen sized mattress is deeply discounted today on Amazon.
It doesn’t feature the Never-Flat pump we’ve mentioned before, but it does include a built-in electric pump, which is one less thing to lose. This price is almost $15 less than usual, and an all-time low, but it’s only available today, so don’t sleep on it.
Pack your stuff in a new Timbuk2 bag during their Best of Travel Sale. Get up to 50% off a ton of styles, no code needed, and make sure you’re packed like a pro for your next trip. One of your favorite rolling carry-ons is the star of the show, but the sale also includes a number of duffels and backpacks, if that’s more your speed.
Note: Be sure to click a few of the color options on each product page. Some colors often ring up cheaper than the default option.
Update: Back in stock, if you missed out yesterday.
Cooking eggs isn’t exactly rocket science, but I’d say the ability to make soft, medium, and hard boiled eggs, plus omelettes and poached eggs at the touch of a button is worth $15. The Dash Go is Amazon’s top-selling egg cooker, and carries a truly stellar 4.5 star review average from nearly 4,000 customers, so get it while it’s on sale for its best price in months.
Oster’s My Blend isn’t the biggest or most versatile blender you can buy, but for just $18, it can do one thing, and one thing well: Make smoothies to go. The blending jar is also your smoothie bottle, so just toss in your ingredients, blend for a few seconds, and take the finished product with you to the gym or to work.
Oh hey, it’s been awhile since we’ve seen a good copper string light deal. This set is 40' long with 120 bulbs, includes a remote, and is only $10 today with promo code OXY1CL01. That’s a great excuse to liven up your patio space.
This 4-pack of night lights is a fine deal. A good deal, even! But mostly I just wanted to share the product photo above.
If your garage looks like an episode of Hoarders, this simple corner rack from Rubbermaid can keep your tools under control for under $20.
As a rule, most seats you spend time in during the day don’t have enough lumbar support, but that’s easy to fix with this $9 cushion.
Beach season is here, and you can schlep all of your stuff from the parking lot in this $18 mesh bag. The best part? The entire bottom section of the bag is actually a zip-on cooler to store drinks and snacks, meaning you’ll have one less thing to carry.
Anker’s beginning its drive into the automotive accessory space with an affordable new dash cam, and you can race over to Amazon to snag one for $67 with code 3RJ6NATH, the best price we’ve seen since our exclusive (and short-lived) $64 launch deal.
I test drove the Anker Roav DashCam, and you can see my full impressions here. But to give you the cliffnotes, it shoots 1080p, its space-saving design makes it essentially invisible to the driver, and it even includes Wi-Fi to transfer clips to your phone, which is hard to find in a sub-$100 dash cam.
The last big deal on this thing only lasted a few hours, and we have little reason to expect this will be any different.
You’ve heard of Automatic’s smart driving assistant, but if $80-$100 is too rich for your blood, this cheap OBD2 dongle connects to Android device over Bluetooth, and can fulfill many of the same functions using various third party apps.

Smartwool easily socked it to the competition when it came to finding out what your favorite everyday socks are, and with good reason: they’re kind of awesome. The downside to their awesomeness is they’re on the pricey side. But right now, use the code SMARTWOOL and get 33% off any three pairs of Smartwool socks on Jet.com. Just add your three favorites to the cart, enter the code, and get ready for warm feet.
Note: This deal was briefly available last week, but now it’s here for real.
Whether you’re a serious hiker, play a lot of sports, or just want to stay properly hydrated at your desk job, today’s CamelBak sale on Amazon has your name on it.
In addition to several of the namesake CamelBak hydration backpacks, you’ll also find a bunch standalone water bottles, as well as accessories to go along with your existing packs. So whether this is your first CamelBak purchase, or if you’re a diehard, there’s gear on sale for you here. Just note that like all Gold Box deals, these prices are only available today, or until sold out.
Before long, it’ll be too cold to bother schlepping to the gym, but you can keep in shape at home with this cleverly designed PowerBlock dumbbell set. Each dumbbell adjusts from 2.5 to 50 pounds in 2.5 pound increments with just the flick of a selector pin. It’s like a complete weight rack that could almost fit into a shoebox.
Today’s $230 deal is one of the best prices we’ve ever seen, so be sure to get this deal before it’s swoled out.
You work hard all day, and you deserve a massage. No, you deserve massages any time you damn well want them. So do yourself a solid and score a deal on one of Naipo’s top-selling electric massage products. Just note the promo codes below, and take a load off (your wallet).
Sperry is sailing through the summer with a pair of great sales this week, with free shipping on all orders, and free express shipping when you spend $75 or more.
First off, the Fall Preview Sale features a relatively small collection of footwear marked down by up to 30%, including several boots, no promo code required.
If you don’t see what you’re looking for there, there are also a ton of great discounts available in the clearance section, with more styles to choose from.
Foam rollers are great for soothing aching muscles, and this 13" model will only set you back $12 today with code 2A2OJHO9. I’d say that’s a better use of your money than 5 minutes at a massage parlor.
Update: The Fitbit Blaze discount is gone, unfortunately.
If you’ve never checked out Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale, what are you even doing on Kinja Deals? The retailer puts thousands of fall and winter styles, plus Nordstrom Beauty Exclusives, on sale way before they go into the stores. Once the sale is over, you’ll only be able to get them for full price, so you’d better get on it. The sale lasts until August 6th.
Hiking can quickly devolve from a wonderful day outdoors to the seventh circle of hell if you don’t use the right footwear, so take this opportunity to save 30% on Merrell’s popular Moab hiking boots for men and women. This deal is only available this weekend, so don’t traipse around too long thinking about it.

And, if you’re part of their rewards program, get 3x the points on the over 40,000 items on sale.

There are a lot of “The Girl...” books out there, The Girl With All The Gifts may just be the best of the bunch, and it’s certainly worth $3 to add to your Kindle library.
Melanie is a very special girl. Dr Caldwell calls her “our little genius.”
Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant keeps his gun pointing at her while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don’t like her. She jokes that she won’t bite, but they don’t laugh.
The Girl With All the Gifts is a groundbreaking thriller, emotionally charged and gripping from beginning to end.
If you saw Dunkirk this weekend (editor’s note: Go see Dunkirk this weekend), you can read more about the retreat for under $2 on your Kindle.
Amazon always offers a free one-month trial of its Audible audiobook service, but for a limited time, they’re also tossing in an extra free book credit to sweeten the pot. That’s in addition to the book you normally get with the trial, and each credit is valid for any title in the Audible library. The best part? The books you choose are yours to keep, even if you cancel the trial before it renews.
Just note that this deal is only valid for new Audible members only.

[Heroes of the Storm] Tracer Hero: The cavalry’s here! Jump into the Nexus with Tracer and surprise your enemies in the blink of an eye.
Amazon shows these as currently out of stock, but after Googling around a bit, that seems to be an error (or a way for Amazon to get around their typical 20% Prime preorder discount), because this should come out on July 28.
If you have Gamer’s Club Unlocked, you can get it for even less at Best Buy.
It’s a great day to pick up a new DualShock 4, with multiple colors marked down to just $40 on Amazon.

Corsair’s packed a ton of features into its M65 Pro gaming mouse, including an aluminum body, 12,00 DPI sensor, custom RGB backlighting, and even a “sniper button” for toggling DPI settings on the fly. It typically sells for around $60, and $35's the best price Amazon’s ever listed.
