You don’t need a yard, or even any gardening skills to grow your own food at home; you just need Miracle-Gro’s Aerogarden line. These fully-integrated, soil-free indoor gardens can grow herbs, vegetables, and salad greens up to five times faster than regular soil, and you can choose from two great deals today.

The smaller Sprout Plus LED model is marked down to $70, and can grow up to three pods at once, while the larger Harvest can accommodate six pods for just $30 more. Both come with a starter pack of pods to get started, but Amazon has a ton of extra options on sale to fit your tastes.

These days, you probably charge as many things over USB as you do over standard AC outlets, so it only makes sense to add some semi-permanent USB ports to your home.

Today on Amazon, you can get highly-rated duplex receptacles with a pair of USB ports for $20 each. These have proven very popular with readers in the past, even at higher prices, so be sure to secure a few before Amazon sells out.

Note: These don’t come with wall plates, but Leviton sells one for just $.34 as an Amazon add-on item.

Assuming it’s legal in your state, a good radar/laser detector can pay for itself over time, and this highly-rated Escort Passport S55 is on sale for just $109 on BuyDig’s eBay storefront, or $60 less than Amazon.

When you can get a 1080p action cam with a waterproof housing, two batteries, and a built-in LCD screen for under $40, it’s not hard to understand why GoPro’s in trouble. If you’re on the fence, here’s a handy YouTube video to see how the footage stacks up next to a GoPro. Spoiler alert: Pretty well.

Contigo’s Autoseal West Loop is your favorite travel mug, but if you prefer a handle, the Autoseal Randolph is on sale for $13 today, an all-time low.

You can’t control it from your smartphone like a Philips Hue Lightstrip, but this TaoTronics LED strip light can glow eight different colors, and even includes several modes that will make the lights flash and change to match whatever song is playing in the room. Plus, unlike a Hue system, almost anyone can afford this thing at $25. Each strip is 16.4' long, but they can be cut to length.

These Dyson AM06 air multipliers are marked down to awesome prices on Amazon today, as long as you don’t mind buying a refurb. Yeah, they’re more expensive than your average fan, but they look so gorgeous that you’ll actually want to show them off, and they come with features like a sleep timer, 10 airflow settings, and a magnetic remote that can stick to the fan’s base when not in use.

Velcro cable ties can transform the rat king of cables behind your desk or home theater into something more manageable, and you can get 100 of them today on Amazon for just $6.

Earlier this week, we shared a deal on a front pocket RFID-blocking wallet for $8, but if that one wasn’t your style, here’s another option for the same price.

Vansky LED Bias Light, $15 with code YHRKTVL1
Vansky LED Bias Light, $15 with code YHRKTVL1

For a few years now, Antec’s USB-powered HDTV bias light has been one of our most reliably popular deals whenever it went on sale. The problem: It only gets a significant discount once every few months. Luckily, a copycat has emerged to fill in the gap.

Advertisement

Just like the Antec model, this Vansky LED light strips plug directly into your TV’s USB port for power, and sticks to the back of the set via built-in adhesive. Once you turn your TV on, the light strip will cast a soft glow on the wall behind it, which can reduce eyestrain when watching in the dark, and improve your TV’s perceived black levels. We’ve posted a few deals on this model, but $15 is the best price we’ve seen.

Apple Watch discounts have almost exclusively been relegated to the entry-level aluminum sport models, but this weekend only, Best Buy is taking $200 off the stainless steel line. In addition to heftier, shinier cases, these Apple Watches include nearly-impervious sapphire screen covers to ward off scratches.


4-Pack Packing Cubes, $13 with code CUBE8OFF

Update: Promo code has expired.

Packing cubes can make organizing clothes and toiletries for your next trip a little less hellish, and this highly-rated set of four is only $13 today, which is one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on a packing cube set.

These cheap LED lights can stick directly into your grass to light a path to your front door, and since they include built-in solar panels, you won’t have to run any wires or replace any batteries. Under $20 for a 2-pack is one of the best deals we’ve seen on a product like this.

This deal is incredibly niche and a matter of taste, but if you want to turn old wine bottles into portable light fixtures, this three-pack of cork lights is the deal for you. They’re battery-operated, and will run for 2.5 hours on a charge.

If the thought of a $15 rice cooker isn’t enough to wet your whistle (and really, what’s more exciting than rice?), consider that it also includes a steaming tray that can cook your meats and vegetables simultaneously.

If you’ve got a little more to spend, this step-up model from Tiger will double as a slow cooker, and includes dedicated settings for different styles of rice. At $49, it’s never been cheaper.

Update: Price mistake! The headphones and generic waterproof bag come out to $8 after code VRHXRO7D. Get yours before they fix it!

Update 2: If you add the waterproof bag to your cart on its own and use the same code, you can get it for free!

Update 3: The waterproof bag is sold out, bringing the excitement to an end. If you have an iPhone 6 though, the other armband deal below should still work.

Bluetooth headphones and smartphone arm bands go together like peanut butter and jelly (except much healthier), and you can take your pick of two combo deals today. Just add Aukey’s Bluetooth headphones to your cart, then add either an iPhone 6 armband and use code 5EU6TKKX to get both for $18, or a generic, waterproof armband and code VRHXRO7D for $16.

Decen French Press Coffee Maker, $14 with code VID2IO58

If you can’t start your day without a morning cup of coffee, but you’re still using an electric drip coffee maker, or even (gasp) a Keurig, you might want to try out a flavor-extracting french press. This inexpensive model looks nearly identical to the excellent Bodum Chambord, but is significantly cheaper at $14 with code VID2IO58.

If you’re not convinced, know that french press took the #1 spot in Lifehacker’s coffee-making Hive Five, and many coffee aficionados swear by it. And with no disposable filters or pods to buy, this machine could pay for itself over time.

Today’s Amazon deal is the best price we’ve ever seen this model, but we don’t know how long it will last, so perk up and lock in your order while you can.

If you have a closet with at least one 4'-8' wall, this Rubbermaid custom shelving kit will add a ton of extra storage space. The configuration is totally up to you, so you can add more shelves, hanging rods, or any combination thereof. Today’s $84 deal on Amazon is within a few bucks of an all-time low, so be sure to lock in your order before it sells out.

In case you missed out last week, you can once again snag an extra year of PlayStation Plus for $40. I know it seems like we’re seeing this deal every week right now, but these gift card deals tend to be feast or famine; it wouldn’t surprise me a bit if the deal disappeared for three months.

Simplehuman dominated the nominations in our recent kitchen trash cans Kinja Co-Op, and Amazon’s running rare discounts on several different models today, plus a handful of soap dispensers and kitchen accessories to match.

Simplehuman sales are pretty rare, so if you’ve had one of these on your wishlist, I wouldn’t hesitate.

It isn’t the fastest or most powerful router on the market, but if you’re on the hunt for an 802.11ac router, and you’re on a budget, this well-reviewed TP-Link model is marked down to $50 today on Amazon. That’s about $20 less than normal, an all-time low, and one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on a reputable 802.11ac router.

We see deals on car-starting battery packs just about every week, but even by our standards, $27 is a really fantastic starting price (with code TA9A92XK) for a 300A model. And for owners of larger cars, 400A and 600A versions are also on sale. No matter which one you choose, they all include a DC charger to juice it back up inside your car, and they’re all small enough to fit in your glove box.
