The Amazon Echo is arguably this decade’s iPhone, and if you still don’t have one (or more) set up in your home, Amazon’s running an unprecedented $50 discount (if you don’t count the early-access deal for invited Prime members), today only.

Advertisement

That’s $130 for a very solid-sounding voice-controlled speaker that can read you news alerts, ask you Jeopardy questions, play music from multiple streaming sources, control your lights, and a few thousand other things. Plus, all Alexa-controlled devices get you access to Amazon’s Alexa-exclusive deals, which are often quite good.

Again, this price is only available today, so don’t miss this chance to add some smarts to your home.

6-Month PureVPN Subscription, $43 with code 6M31 | 2-Year PureVPN Subscription, $60 with code 2Y77
Advertisement

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), PureVPN is running some pretty stellar discounts right now.

Advertisement

If you sign up for a six month membership and use promo code 6M31, you’ll get it for $7.20 per month rather than the listed $9, and if you commit to two years, your price will drop all the way to $2.51 per month with code 2Y77, down from $2.95. That’s less than you spend during a trip to Starbucks.

Anker PowerPort Speed 1, $19 with code ANKR7214
Anker PowerPort Speed 1, $19 with code ANKR7214
Advertisement

Anker’s PowerPort Speed 1 is basically Anker’s take on Apple’s 29W USB-C charger that comes bundled with the 12" MacBook. They’re both small bricks with a single USB-C port, power throughput is almost identical (the Anker ekes out one extra watt), and they’ll both (obviously) charge that 12" MacBook at full speed.

You probably see where I’m going with this, but there is one big difference: Price! The Apple charger will set you back $49, while the Anker is on sale for just $19 with code ANKR7214. If you own a 12" MacBook, this is a great chance to pick up an extra charger for your travel bag, or to keep plugged in full-time at your desk, so you don’t have to keep constantly moving it.

Anker’s PowerLine+ USB-C cable is also on sale, if you need an spare.

TP-Link Deco M5 Mesh Router 3-Pack, $180 with code 50RADIO and $20 clippable coupon
TP-Link Deco M5 Mesh Router 3-Pack, $180 with code 50RADIO and $20 clippable coupon
Advertisement

Update 6/26: This code is still valid, but an on-screen clippable $20 coupon will bring it down to $180. That’s just $60 per router!

TP-Link just came out with their answer to the mesh networking trend, and you can get three Deco M5 routers for just $200 today with promo code 50RADIO.

Advertisement

By virtue of being new, these don’t have as many reviews as, say, Eero routers, but $200 for a 3-pack (enough to cover a 4500 square foot home, according to TP-Link) is a pretty stunning price compared to similar products on the market. I was actually sent a demo unit of the three-pack to try out, and while I couldn’t really test the range in my 700 square foot apartment, I found them to be very easy to set up.

Sennheiser HD 6XX, $250 at 9AM ET. 7500 units available.

Sennheiser’s HD 650 open back headphones are widely considered some of the best-sounding cans you can buy for under $1000, and the best chance to get them is when MassDrop drops a new shipment of the legendary HD 6XX.

Advertisement

The 6XX is basically exactly the same as the 650, but with a 6' cable rather than the original’s 10', which is actually a better length, in my opinion. The 650s are currently listed for $316 on Amazon, and have never been cheaper than $287, but 7500 units of the 6XX will be available for $250 on MassDrop at 9AM ET today.

They sold through 5,000 units in about 20 minutes the last time these went on sale, and the hype has only grown since then, so create or login to your MassDrop account, and get those buying fingers ready.

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. Now, Amazon frequently lists these at $5, but as add-on items that only ship as part of a $25 order. Today, you’ll pay $1 more, but you can get free Prime shipping.

Update: This deal expires today, so it’s your last chance.

The past year or so has seen a welcome deluge of Wi-Fi router innovation, and Portal seems to be one of the best newcomers in the space, particularly for smaller dwellings in congested, urban environments.

Advertisement

Portal includes app-based configuration, nine internal antennas, and mesh capabilities if you buy more than one...table stakes these days for a good router. But while almost all home Wi-Fi routers limit you to a small number of public channels over 5GHz, Portal also opens up four “DFS” channels that are typically reserved for military use and commercial radar.

Advertisement

The law allows home routers to use these DFS channels, but they must shift off of them for a set amount of time whenever they detect active radar to avoid interference. Portal does just this, and moves all of your devices off of the busy channel in the background automatically, and shifts them back on when it’s safe. That means that most of the time, these channels are practically empty, so you won’t have to worry about interference from your neighbors’ Wi-Fi networks. This Digital Trends review has a thorough explanation of the technology, if you’re curious.

Portal retails for $200, and has sold for around $150 for the last few months, but for a limited time, you can try it out for $126 with promo code KINJAWIN. I bought this thing earlier this year, and absolutely love it.

Update: Sold out

I come bearing great news: It’s possible to have SONOS-style music streaming on a Bluetooth budget.

Advertisement

The Willnorn SoundPlus X Wi-Fi speaker is incredibly affordable, works with AirPlay, and lets you sync multiple units together either into stereo pairs, or for seamless multi-room streaming. They won’t sound as good as a SONOS setup, obviously, but multi-room streaming is not easy to find at this price point.

For a limited time, you can get one for $18 with promo code HLFWBRL9, or two or more for $16 each with promo code 44DVFSGS. Just add as many as you want to your cart, enter the code and watch the price drop.

So you want to try a standing desk, but you’re not ready to commit to it for eight hours a day...what do you do? You buy this Lorell monitor riser for $148, an all-time low.

Advertisement

This riser arrives fully assembled, and just sits on top of your existing desk. Put your monitor(s) on the top shelf, your keyboard and mouse on the bottom, and use its integrated spring system to raise the entire setup from a sitting to standing position within seconds. I own a very similar product from Varidesk (which was much more expensive, by the way), and I absolutely love it.

I can tell you from experience that you’ll definitely want a good anti-fatigue mat for standing. This one has great reviews, but whatever you choose, make sure it’s at least 3/4" thick.

The reader-favorite (and kevlar-reinforced) PowerLine Lightning cable has been one-upped by the PowerLine+ and PowerLine II, but the original is still great, and a solid deal at $7.

And in case you missed it this week, the 6' PowerLine II (which includes a lifetime warranty) is also down to $11 right now.

Fitbit’s Alta is one of the first fitness trackers that actually looks nice on your wrist, owing largely to its fashionable interchangeable bands, and you can pick one up on Amazon for $70 brand new right now. That’s by far the best price ever; it’s actually $15 cheaper than it was on Black Friday.

Anker’s take on truly wireless earbuds is finally here, and you can save a lot by preordering through Kickstarter.

Update: Anker added 3,000 additional $99 backer rewards to celebrate reaching $1,000,000, if you missed out last week.

Advertisement

Needless to say, we don’t make a habit of covering crowdfunding campaigns, but given that we’ve personally used almost every product Anker has ever made, and our readers have purchased more than 200,000 of their products without issue, we’ll make an exception. Especially for this huge preorder discount.

Advertisement

Even better, I checked out two engineering samples of the Liberty+ on a recent trip to Seattle. They were comfortable (using the only size of ear tips available with the samples), and sounded great both when streaming Spotify and playing a few minutes of some podcasts.

As you’d expect from Anker, the headline spec here is battery life. Liberty+ gets a competitive 3.5 hours of playtime from the earbuds, but a whopping 48 hours out of the charging case. They also have some waterproofing, use Bluetooth 5.0, and work with your favorite voice assistants. Just don’t expect to wear them underwater or find any built-in fitness tracking.

Advertisement

I’ve been using wireless earbuds most days since mid-2016, and between our team we’ve tested more than ten different pairs. Anker’s Liberty+ are a steal at $89 (or $99 if you miss the early bird special), and while they will of course get discounted many times in the future from their $149 MSRP, we wouldn’t expect this price point again any time soon.

Expected shipping in October 2017.

If you can’t find the time to get to the gym every day, this under-desk elliptical lets you squeeze in some light exercise while you fill out your TPS reports. This typically sells for $120-$170 on Amazon, and today’s $75 Gold Box deal is the best price we’ve ever seen by nearly $25.

Unless you have a fully furnished guest bedroom, an air mattress is just one of those things you should own, and these highly-rated Intex mattresses are deeply discounted today on Amazon.

They don’t feature the Never-Flat pumps we’ve mentioned before, but they do include built-in electric pumps, which is one less thing to lose. You can choose from either a twin or a queen, but just note that these prices are only available today, so don’t sleep on it.

Our readers have bought thousands of OxyLED’s motion-sensing T-02 lights, but the newest model ditches the motion detection for an on/off touch sensor, and we have an exclusive deal on them today.

Advertisement

$15 (with code KINJAOXY) gets you two of the just-released lights, down from $23. I could see these being useful in cabinets or closets that get enough ambient light to disable the motion-sensing models, but they’re also just less expensive, if you want to stock up on affordable lighting.

If your tires are about due for a replacement, Discount Tire Direct is offering up to $100 in Visa gift card rebates (in addition to any manufacturer rebates) when you order four new tires, plus an additional $100 if you order wheels as well, plus an extra $60 on each if you use a Discount Tire credit card. Just enter your make and model, click the options to see tires on promotion, and you’ll see the rebate amount (either $25, $75, or $100) on the right hand side.

Life’s too short to vacuum every other day, but luckily, you can pawn that tedious chore off to a Roomba, and the entry level 650 model is marked down to $275 today on Amazon, a match for last year’s Black Friday deal.

While some people will prefer to buy the name brand (it certainly helps if you need to buy replacement parts or filters), I’ve found Anker’s Eufy RoboVac 11 to be quite similar to the entry level Roomba, if you’d prefer to spend a little less.

You might not need to use a Dremel all that often, but it’s one of those things everyone should keep in their tool box, if only for sanding wood and carving jack-o-lanterns. Hell, my wife used ours to turn an iPhone 6 case into an iPhone 7 case.

The Dremel 4000 features a variable speed motor that can spin anywhere from 5,000 to 35,000 RPM, and includes 30 accessories and two attachments to get you started with projects all around the house. If you’re a Prime member, you can get it under $50 today, while supplies last.

Bar none, Sport-Brella is the ultimate beach umbrella, and Amazon’s discounting the blue model for just $40 today, if you’re willing to wait out a backorder.

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. Today’s price isn’t the best we’ve ever seen, but it’s a solid deal if you have a beach trip on the horizon.
