If you find yourself in need of a lot of extra storage, you can get a 5TB external for just $110 today from Newegg’s eBay storefront. What a world.

Featuring six programmable buttons, on-the-fly DPI switching, and buttons tested to 20 million clicks, the Logitech G302 Daedalus Prime is about as good as it gets in a $25 gaming mouse.

Modern furniture is an acquired taste, unless you have an odd obsession with Mad Men, then I guess you’re an exception. It’s all about simplicity and geometry and bold, primary colors and if that’s your jam, the 50% off sale at CB2 is all you. It’s a lot of outdoor furniture (so if you have an outdoor space, do it up) but there are some solid indoor pieces as well.

This awesome Wind Waker Link action figure comes with a variety of weapons, tools, poses, and even expressions. It’s kind of like the Swift Sail in Wind Waker HD: You don’t need it, but it’ll improve your life immeasurably.

Update: The PowerCore 13000 is now on sale for an all-time low $21 as well. It doesn’t have Quick Charge, but it’s higher capacity than the 10000, and includes two USB ports instead of one.

Anker’s brand new PowerCore 10000 is part of your favorite line of USB battery packs, and you can pick one up on Amazon today for just $22, which is $8 less than usual, and an all-time low. Not to be confused with the older PowerCore 10000, this model includes Quick Charge 3.0 (backwards compatible with 2.0), which should feed power into your compatible phone like a firehose.

You also get Anker’s standard 18 month warranty and a nice travel pouch, but the real reason to buy the PowerCore 10000 is its size. If you’ve owned other ~10,000mAh battery packs, you’ll be shocked how small and light this thing is.

As part of today’s Gold Box deal, Amazon will sell you a complete set of six Superior Collection cotton towels in the color of your choice for $31. There are certainly cheaper towel sets out there, notably those from AmazonBasics, but the secret sauce here is the “Zero Twist” construction, which results in a softer, more absorbent towel. You deserve it!

A naked GoPro is a Pandora’s Box of possibilities, so why not go a little nuts by buying every possible accessory for it? Actually, it’s not really that nuts when you realize it’s only $18 when you use the code 95FOZS73. That’s spare change you find in the couch for each piece.

Personally, I would caution against buying a MacBook Air these days. That screen is so bad compared to the MacBook Pro and 12" MacBook! That being said, Best Buy’s taking $200 off 11" Airs today, and you can get an extra $100 if you have access to a .edu email address, bringing the 128GB model down to just $600, and the 256GB down to $800. That’s cheap as you’ll ever see a current-generation Apple laptop.

Today only, Logitech’s excellent Anywhere Mouse MX is down to just $28, within a few pennies of the best price we’ve ever seen. This thing will work on any surface, including glass, so if you’re rolling with a crappy mouse, don’t miss this impulse-priced deal.


2-Pack Mpow Lightning Cables, $8 with code DX6FXOLV

These Lightning cables aren’t extra long, and they aren’t wrapped in kevlar, but they’re fine! And incredibly affordable. If you could use a few spares, this is a no-brainer price for a two-pack.

Granted, only one of the two ports here includes Quick Charge 2.0, but still, this is one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on a QC 2.0 car charger with multiple ports. I’m sure your slower-charging passenger will understand.

Bonus: You even get a microUSB cable!

Whether you’re counting calories, baking, measuring espresso shots, or weighing small packages, a kitchen scale is a always a great tool to have on hand. We’ve found deals on two different models today: A $15 option (with code IVWGRSIK) with a removable stainless steel bowl and a digital cooking timer, and another barebones model for just $10 (with code NVU8KPUX).

Ready to make the leap to five channel surround sound, say, with this $100 Monoprice speaker set? BuyDig’s eBay storefront will sell you a 5.2 channel 4K AV receiver for $150 today, which is about $50 less than elsewhere. I’m sure many agrieved commenters will tell me that 7.1 is the only “true” surround sound, but if you’re on a budget, and aren’t a serious audiophile, this should be a serious upgrade over standard stereo speakers.

Amazon suits are good for the soul. Or at least the extra 25% off when using the code DAPPER is good for your wallet. The code works for all of your suiting needs, from suit separates to dress shirts to the whole shebang.


Moto X Pure, $240-$320

The 5.7" Moto X Pure “does Android better than Google,” and Amazon will sell you a 16GB model for $239, or a 64GB for $320 unlocked today. Those are far and away the best prices we’ve ever seen, but we don’t expect them to last long.

Update: Also available at B&H and Best Buy.

Anker’s newest charging hub is ostensibly designed as a superior replacement for your USB-C MacBook charger—it’s the first third party charging hub 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. Today’s $37 deal is an all-time low, down from its usual $44.

The Steam Summer Sale is now on it’s second day, and is featuring a bunch of pretty awesome games. The deals include Binding of Issac: Rebirth, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Torchlight II, and a lot more, so head over to Steam to see the full collection.

If you need some new reading material to get through the summer, StoryBundle (which, full disclosure, was started by former Gizmodo and Lifehacker editor Jason Chen) just launched a massive Adventure Sci-Fi bundle, allowing you to name your own price for up to 15 DRM-free e-books from authors including Hugo nominee Bryan Thomas Schmidt, Nebula nominee Charles E. Gannon, and Brian Herbert, son of Dune author Frank Herbert, and an accomplished writer himself.

A few notes here, if you aren’t familiar with StoryBundle: There is an $8 minimum donation, and you’ll need to pay $16 to get all of the books. You can also decide how much of your money goes to the authors vs. StoryBundle, and even give 10% to charity if you wish. Happy! reading!

If you held a gun to my head and forced me to use a Windows laptop, I’d absolutely choose the Dell XPS 13. Adorama’s eBay storefront today is selling one with a 3200x1800 edge to edge display, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD for $850, which is a fantastic bargain for anyone seeking a mid-to-high end laptop who doesn’t care so much about gaming.

Even if you’re not feeling the hippy-dippy, free spirit vibe that Free People is known for, you can find some pretty righteous (yeah, I went there) pieces. Withan extra 25% off on all sale items, you’ve got to feel the love on something, right?

When it comes to having a corner on the market, nothing really compares to Nike. Use the code ZOOM25 to score an extra 25% off already reduced men’s and women’s clearance items and hope on that sportswear bandwagon.

These glass airtight food jars are currently Amazon’s top seller in the hotly contested “Food Jars and Crocks” category, and you can save $14 on a set of two with promo code JVOA6P4T. If they keep just one bag of pistachios fresh, they’ll have already paid for themselves.

You know what they say; once you go vacuum insulated stainless steel, you never go back. This 20 ounce bottle includes three different lids that you can swap depending on the situation, and can keep a cold drink cold for up to 24 hours, or a hot drink hot for up to 12. I own a similar bottle, and the effect is indistinguishable from magic.

Note: The code is only valid on the 20 ounce silver model.


Refurb Fitbit Aria, $50

Today you can grab a Fitbit Aria smart scale on Newegg for an all-time low $50, as long as you don’t mind a refurb. It only really makes sense to buy this scale if you own (and regularly use) a Fitbit, but if you do, the Aria sync your weight, BMI, and body fat % to the Fitbit app to track your goals and progress over time.

Stainless steel drinking straws add a touch of class to everything from Coke Zero to Moscow Mules, and you can get eight of them today (four bent, four straight) for $11. Just add both items below to your cart, and use code KEE69H9P at checkout.

With a good set of silicone cooking gloves, you’ll have full finger control when you handle hot pans in the kitchen. Hell, you could use them to just pick up a piece of meat directly off the grill, like some sort of barbecue superhero. For $6, why not?

Get 50% off New Arrivals, 60% off select styles, and an extra 50% off sale items. Have fun trying to keep your browser organized.

I know, I know. The Xbox One S is coming soon. But damn, it’s hard to resist the white Gears of War special edition console bundle, Minecraft, NBA 2K16, and an extra controller for just $279.

You can also opt for the 1TB three-game bundle, a copy of Forza Horizon 2, and an extra controller for $299.

Amazon’s Prime Pantry program is great for stocking up on household goods and non-perishable foods without actually having to visit a store, but the $5.99 per box shipping charge has always been a drag. This month though, if you buy five select items, you can get that fee waived.

Bonus: If you already have a no-rush free shipping credit in your account, this deal actually appears to stack, netting you an extra $6 discount.

They ran a similar promotion the last few months with different eligible items. Just add five of them to your box (plus anything else that will fit), and use code PANTRYJUN at checkout to get free shipping.

Need a little push to get off the couch? The Fitbit Charge HR is your favorite wearable fitness tracker, and you can get one for just $100 today, which is a match for the best deal we’ve seen.

Assuming you have (or don’t mind buying) a receiver, and aren’t bothered by the thought of running wires, this $100 speaker set from Monoprice is one of the most tempting home theater audio deals we’ve ever seen.

Whiel it isn’t as turnkey as a VIZIO 5.1 sound bar system, it should sound really good, and will give you much better separation on the front channels. Unfortunately, today’s $100 deal isn’t eligible for Monoprice’s current $20 off $100/$10 off $50 promotions, but it’s tough to complain at this price.
