Anker’s SoundCore blew away the competition to take the title of your favorite affordable Bluetooth speaker, and today, you can pick one up for $27 with code UVQH8VHF. That’s a couple bucks more than it was on Prime Day, but otherwise one of the best prices we’ve seen.
In addition to solid sound quality and impressive Bluetooth range, the standout feature here is the SoundCore’s 24 hour battery life. I’ve owned one for over a year now, and while I’ll occasionally remember to plug it in when I pass by a spare microUSB cord, it’s never once given me a low battery warning, and I use it a lot.
Update 2: Back in stock on Amazon, if you missed out on Saturday.
Update: Amazon sold out, but it’s available for the same price from Best Buy.
$65 for a Logitech Harmony remote is a great deal on its face, but the real reason to buy this model is the included Harmony Home Hub.
The Hub allows you to use your iPhone, Android device, or even an Amazon Echo to control everything a Harmony remote can (which is basically any piece of home theater gear you can think of). So even when you inevitably lose the included remote behind the couch cushions, you’ll still have multiple ways to take control of all of your home theater gear.
Note: Yes, I realize the hub isn’t in the Amazon product photo, but here’s the relevant part of the product description:
Audio Technica’s ATH-ANC9s have been around for years, but they did win Gizmodo’s 2012 battle of the best noise cancelling headphones, and today’s all-time low $129 deal is a whopping $70 less than usual.
Of course, it’s 2017, so you may not want to buy corded headphones anymore. Luckily, the ATH-S700BTs are also $30 off, down to an all-time low $99. They’re wireless and feature 40mm drivers, though they don’t have active noise cancellation.
While mesh routers have broken through in 2016, the Wirecutter-recommended TP-Link Archer C7 though is one of the best “traditional” routers you can get, and it’ll only cost you $77 today after you clip the $10 coupon. It was down to $70 around Black Friday, but this is one of the best deals we’ve seen since the holidays.
If you’ve been meaning to wall-mount your TV, this highly-rated AmazonBasics mount will only set you back $14 today, an all-time low. This particular model doesn’t articulate left and right, but it can hold TVs anywhere from 37" to 80", so it should work with basically any home theater.
This 10,000mAh battery pack doesn’t have Quick Charge or USB-C, but it does have the most important feature you can get in a battery pack: An incredibly slim design. Get it for just $14 with code 4WBMEFZL, while supplies last.
You’ve probably heard a lot of fuss about mechanical keyboards lately, and if not, you’ve at least heard the clicking. If you’re curious to try one yourself without dropping a bunch of money, you can get a tenkeyless Velocifire model for $25, or a full-width keyboard for $9 more today.
The keys don’t use name brand Cherry MX switches, but the switches it does include should closely mimic Cherry MX Browns, which are easy to press and quieter than most other switches, making them popular for office use.
It’s impossible to describe the BioLite CampStove without sounding like a lunatic, but you can actually find some sticks just laying on the ground, toss them into the stove and light them on fire at the push of a button, and then charge your phone with a USB port that’s powered by the heat of the flame. It’s completely insane, and yet it works.
Of course, this also works as a regular old camp stove, and at full power it can boil a liter of water in under five minutes. It also weighs two pounds, and is about the size of a large water bottle, so it won’t take up too much space in your camping bag. Get it for an all-time low $79 with promo code GOODFIRE, for a limited time.
Shane looked at the CampStove 2 for Gear, and while that model includes a built-in battery pack, a camp light, and a few other enhancements, I don’t think any of them are worth the price premium during this promotion.
Range extenders aren’t a cure-all for your home network, but if you have one or two spots in the house that just doesn’t get good reception, they’re an inexpensive way to fill in the gaps. This model from TP-Link has great reviews, and at $34 (after clipping the $10 coupon), it’s a fantastic deal.
Your favorite USB car charger just happens to be the smallest one you can buy, and you can grab it on Amazon for $7 today with code AUKEYCC3. This is Kinja Deals’ top-selling product of all time, and if it’s been on your wish list, this is the best price we’ve seen in about a year.
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!
Top Home Deals
If your current vacuum isn’t getting the job done, you can upgrade to this highly-rated Hoover WindTunnel 3 for just $96, today only. It’s a little more than you’d expect to pay for a basic stick vacuum, but this one includes some extra attachments like a pivoting dusting tool, pet Turbo tool, telescoping extension wand and crevice tool.
Amazon typically lists this model around $120-$190, and $96 is an all-time low. Just be sure to grab it before it gets cleaned out.
If you want top-to-bottom cleaning, add in this this spin mop and use the code GREEN696 to knock off $5.
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 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.
We all know that charcoal grills are the best grills, and this $91 model from Char-Broil makes outdoor cooking simple. That gets you nearly 600 square inches of cooking surface, two side tables, and a fire pan that you can raise or lower with a hand crank to determine how close your food gets to the flame.
Today’s deal is an all-time low price, but it’s only available for Prime members.
Pressing isn’t always the best way to prepare garlic, but it’s certainly the fastest, and it extracts far more flavor (for better or worse) than simple mincing. If you like to cook, a garlic press should definitely be in your toolkit for $9.
You always think you have enough pens lying around, until suddenly, you have none. A box of 50 gel pens for $7 is the perfect deal, because no one ever needs that many pens but it’s always good to have extras. Like, a lot of extras.
TP-Link has been quietly assembling an impressive coterie of smart home gadgets for awhile now, but their Philips Hue competitor might be their most impressive gadget yet.
While the TP-Link smart bulb lacks IFTTT support and Hue’s massive ecosystem of apps, you can still control it via the Kasa app, or with an Amazon Echo. And unlike Hue, you don’t need a hub to control them; they connect directly to your router.
Amazon recently added the ability to control the bulbs’ color with Alexa (rather than just its brightness level), so you can take full control over your lighting with just your voice.
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 $73 deal on Amazon is one of the best prices Amazon’s listed, so you can hang your hat on this deal.
There’s no shortage of oil diffusers you can buy to humidify your home and make it smell nice, but what about your car? This miniature diffuser plugs into one of the USB ports you already have in your car, and is perfectly sized to sit in a cupholder. There’s nothing like eucalyptus to relax you on your commute home after work.
I bought an absurd amount of Mentos gum on Amazon a few months ago, not because I had any particular affinity for it, but because I just like to have gum in my car, and I had just run out. It turns out it was one of the best Amazon purchases I’ve ever made.
The hard Mentos shell is insanely satisfying to bite through, and the center of the gum gives you a blast of mint strong enough to open up your sinuses. It’s not the longest lasting chewing gum out there, but that’s okay, because it gives me an excuse to chase the dopamine kick from chomping into another piece.
Anyway! A whole bunch of Mentos gum, mints and candies are 35% off on Amazon right now, so you can try it out for yourself. Just go find your favorite flavor, and note that you won’t see the discount until checkout.
Yi, the manufacturer of your favorite budget action cam, also makes a well-reviewed dash cam, and you can mount it to your windshield for an all-time low $42 today with promo code MDTNISY3. 1080/60 recording (which gives you twice as many frames to get a clear view of a license plate) and Wi-Fi are both basically unheard of at this price point.
These highly rated food containers basically look like OXO Pops, but significantly less expensive. They’re perfect for storing grains and pasta, and they’ll keep chips and cookies fresher than their original packaging once you open them.
Blacklight flashlights are great if you want to spot hidden stains on train seats, hotel sheets, or (gasp) even in your own house...if that’s something you want to do.
It may seem silly, but if you find even one stain in a hotel room and complain to management, I guarantee that this thing will pay for itself several times over. We’ve seen less expensive lights before, but this one has a whopping 100 LED bulbs, while most of those had 20 or fewer.
Premium travel products like high quality luggage, airport lounge access, or TSA Pre✔︎ seem like unnecessary extravagances when you’re considering purchasing them from the comfort of your own home. But if you travel with any regularity, you know full well that the small conveniences they provide really add up during a stressful day of travel.
The same is true of your toiletry bag, still an afterthought for many an otherwise experiened traveler. Most people tend to stuff everything in a ziploc bag, or even (gasp) loose in the outside pocket of their suitcase. And most bags that do exist are way bigger than they should be, while still offering only a paltry few organizational tools.
Gravel may just be the answer. A Kickstarter project that’s already shot past its goal, they sent me a demo unit, and it’s as well-built as they claim. The bag is far smaller than my own toiletry bag, which I sometimes can’t squeeze into a carry-on if I’m packing for more than a few days. But inside, you’ve got a ton of pockets that are purpose-built for holding all the essentials, including a long and skinny waterproof pocket for your toothbrush (even a Sonicare!), and a larger one for liquids that could explode during your trip.
On the outside of the case, another zippered pocket hides a buckle strap which you can use to hang the bag from a towel rack (handy in small hotels with insufficient counter space), plus another large pouch that’s big enough for a passport.
Gravel isn’t slated to ship until December, but if you order now, you can get one for $39, or two for $69 (nice), down from its expected $49 MSRP. I wouldn’t post it if I hadn’t tried it myself, and it really is a well done product.
Now, even with the code, this is still a $250 backpack. I’m not blind to the fact that that’s a lot of money. But every GR1 is hand-built over the course of four hours in the USA, is covered by a lifetime warranty, and by basically all accounts is just incredibly well-made. There’s a very real chance that this will be the last backpack you ever have to buy.
Own one? Let us know what you think in the comments.

Everyone needs a quality backpack for emergencies, or just to have some extra hands free while traveling. Amazon is discounting a bunch of highly-rated High Sierra backpacks and lunchbags in today’s Gold Box. There are everyday packs, rolling bags, lunch bags and more marked down, basically everything for anyone in the family.
ThinkGeek is now legally allowed to vote. The geek warehouse is celebrating turning 18 with a massive sale. Get up to 60% off a ton of things, plus a rotating selection of daily deals. There’s something for every single level of geek, so it’s really a good idea to take some time to look through them all.
Whether you wear TOMS for the ease of never having to tie your shoes, or just dig the style, this is one deal you should take advantage of. Head over to Nordstrom Rack for their rather large TOMS sale. Plus, they’ve come a long way from just simple, canvas slip-ons.
You voted Eye Buy Direct one of your five favorite online glasses stores, and right now, pick up any pair of glasses or sunglasses (for $15 or more) and get another pair free. Stay shady by using the code BOGO at checkout and stock up, because this deal won’t last. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have six pairs of glasses in my cart that I need to decide on.
Our readers have purchased a ton of Sonicare toothbrushes over the years, so today, it’s time to stock up on replacement brush heads. Pretty much every style Sonicare makes (except the old E-series heads) is $6 off when you buy two, or $8 off when you buy three. Just remember that you won’t see the final price until checkout.
Before you head out on your next hike, be sure to pick up this 3L hydration backpack for just $16. That’s one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on any of these things, so pick this one up before the deal runs dry.
Sometimes, I’m jealous of our pre-digital age ancestors who didn’t have to worry about all of their stuff getting wet when they were paddling canoes or whatever. But I guess when you can get a 10L dry bag for $11, modernity isn’t so bad.
An extra $5 off your choice of Crest 3D Whitestrips packs should put a smile on your face. A few boxes are only available via Prime Pantry, but most are eligible for standard Prime shipping.
Note: Discount shown at checkout.
When it comes to having a corner on the market, nothing really compares to Nike. And right now, use the code SAVE20 and take an extra 20% off their sale styles for both men and women. Everything you could need for a good workout wardrobe is included, from apparel, to sneakers, to gear.
Top Media Deals
Kubo and the Two Strings has everything a perfect family movie could need: beautiful animation, anthropomorphic animals, and a feisty, young main character that has to save the day. And for $5 as an HD digital download from iTunes, it’s something that should be in your collection.
Top Gaming Deals
The Xbox One S is already pretty affordable at $248, but today, that’ll also start your game collection off with four downloadable titles. After you purchase the console from Amazon, you’ll receive an email with instructions to download Ghost Recon Wildlands - Gold edition, Forza Motorsport 6, Halo 5, and Recore. That ought to keep you entertained for awhile.
If you like puzzles, exploration, and beautiful things, you’ll love The Witness, and you can get it for half off today from the Humble store.
If you liked F-Zero, you’ll like Redout, and you’ll especially like it with today’s deal from Chrono.gg. $23 gets you the game, a digital artbook, a soundtrack, and all three DLC track packs. For comparison’s sake, the base game sells for $35 on Steam, and the track packs alone would cost an extra $20. The only catch? This deal is only available today, so race over there to get a copy.
The bundle includes a number of GameMaker: Studio modules (Studio Pro, HTML5, iOS, Android, and Windows), which cost anywhere from $150 to $800 each at retail, plus several games that include source code or UWP modules for you to tear apart, modify, and learn from. As always, you can pay what you want, but options are spread across three different price tiers, the most expensive of which unlocks at $15.
