The humble Raspberry Pi has been inspiring clever hacks for years, and whether you’re new to the Pi or just want to upgrade your original model, we’ve found a great deal on the new (and much-improved) Raspberry Pi 2.

The $60 starter kit comes with the Pi, a case, a power cable, a Wi-Fi dongle, a pair of heatsinks, a pre-loaded memory card, and even an HDMI cable. That’s everything you need to get started! [Raspberry Pi 2 Model B (1GB) Complete Starter Kit, $60 with code RP2XBTEN]

If you need some inspiration, Lifehacker has written approximately 17 billion articles on the Pi, including a beginner’s guide, instructions to turn it into a retro gaming console, and a ton of other fun project ideas to get you started.

The idea of buying a pillow without testing it is a little weird, but then again, so is testing out a lice-ridden sample at Bed Bath & Beyond. This Conforma pillow is Amazon’s top selling neck and cervical pillow, and boasts a 4.3 star average on nearly 1,300 reviews. Today’s $27 price tag is the lowest ever listed, and is a bargain for something you’ll use for 8+ hours every day. [Conforma Memory Foam Pillow, $27]

Target just kicked off an across-the-board 20% off deal on KitchenAid appliances, including their famous stand mixers. Any item on this page that says “See Low Price” will receive a 20% discount once you add it to your cart, bringing certain models all the way down to $200. And if you have a Target REDcard, you’ll automatically save an addition 5% at checkout.

We see various KitchenAid mixers on sale from time to time on eBay, occasionally at lower prices than this, but they’re often refurbished, and you never get to select from so many models at the same time.

Even if you don’t need a mixer, the sale is valid on toasters, food processors, and other accessories as well, so be sure to take a look at the whole collection. [20% off KitchenAid Sale]

This very cheap french press will make better coffee than your cheap drip or lazy Keurig. Or maybe you already have a great pourover style automatic dripper or pourover setup or Aeropress and just want to add a French Press to your arsenal. Either way, this is in impulse buy range. You can use it to make tea too. [French Press, $9]

If you want to make your photos look great without paying a monthly fee for Adobe Creative Cloud, you can get a copy of Photoshop Elements for just $55 today, one of the lowest prices ever listed. It goes without saying that Elements doesn’t have all of the professional tools and options you’ll find in the “real” Photoshop, but it has everything you need for basic home photography adjustments. [Adobe Photoshop Elements, $55]

Note: The sale is only available on the disc-based version of the software, and while it’s compatible with Windows and Mac, I’d probably recommend Pixelmator ($30) over Elements for Mac users.

If your home theater needs a new hub, Amazon’s got a pair of highly-rated Yamaha receivers marked down to all-time low prices today. The $263 Yamaha RX-V477 typically sells for $300-$360, and includes 5.1 channels of audio, AirPlay, and six HDMI ports, while the $300 Yamaha RX-V577 adds full 7.2 channel surround sound for $200 less than its usual asking price.

Whether you need a little bit of extra space, or a lot, you can get a great price on Seagate’s new line of Expansion drives.

Klipsch’s R6 earbuds have solid reviews around the web and typically sell in the $70-$80 range, but you can grab a pair on eBay right now for just $50, with free shipping and no sales tax for most. That’s one of the lowest prices we’ve ever seen, and a great investment for anyone who’s still using the earbuds that came with their phone. [Klipsch R6 Earbuds, $50]

Anyone who’s spent any time watching Food Network or studying cooking knows that the ThermoWorks Thermapen is basically the be-all, end-all of instant read digital food thermometers. The problem is, they cost about $100, and hardly ever go on sale.

Luckily, ThermoWorks is moving to a new warehouse, and liquidating all of their products with a sitewide 15% off discount with code MOVINGSAVE15. That’s valid on the famous Thermapen, and everything else they sell as well. [15% off at ThermoWorks with promo code MOVINGSAVE15]

A dashcam can save you from a major insurance headaches if you get into an accident, or even capture amazing moments that you would have missed otherwise. If you’ve been waiting for a good deal to get your own, this highly-rated Transcend model is down to an all-time low $109 right now.

The coolest feature here (and one that I hope you never have to use) is automatic G-force detection. If the camera senses that you were in an accident, it’ll mark the corresponding footage to never delete until you’ve had a chance to review it. That’s one less thing to worry about in an extremely stressful situation. [Transcend 16GB Drive Pro 200 Car Video Recorder with Built-In Wi-Fi, $109]

Fun Fact: That cement truck crash happened like 2 miles from my house.

If you live in a small apartment, the Apple Airport Express is one of the most dead-simple routers you can buy. And if you live in a larger home, it can also act as a range extender for your AirPort Extreme, or even hook it up to any stereo via a 3.5mm cable to endow it with AirPlay streaming capabilities. At $99, it was already one of the cheapest products Apple sells, but Adorama’s lopping an extra $30 off the price today if you’re willing to fill out a rebate. [Apple Airport Express Base Station, $69 after $20 rebate]

Need to catch up on the last 15 (!!) years’ worth of X-Men movies? They’re all on sale today.

I’m not sure how many of our readers sew, but if you happen to be one of them, Amazon’s dropped the price of their #1 selling sewing machine to an all-time low, today only. The Singer 7256 has 70 different stitch options and a 4.3 star rating on nearly 1,500r reviews, so unless you’re a professional tailor, it should more than suffice for your home sewing needs. [Singer 7256 Sewing Machine, $100]

We’ve uncovered yet another awesome Xbox One deal today. $350 at Target gets you the Xbox One Master Chief bundle, along with a bonus $50 Target gift card. Plus, if you have a Target REDcard, your price will only be $333. [Xbox One Halo MCC Bundle, $350 plus $50 gift card]

Depending on the games you want, Amazon’s Assassin’s Creed bundle with 12 months of Gold and NBA 2K15 might still be a better deal, but you can’t go wrong either way.

If you still haven’t tried Spotify Premium, you can get three months for just $1 for a limited time. That’s three months of no ads, better sound quality, offline listening, and full mobile access. Best buck you’ll ever spend. [3 Months of Spotify Premium, $1]

If the single-port USB charger that came with your phone isn’t cutting it anymore, this $10 gadget is the same idea, but with four ports. It’s great for sticking behind a nightstand to charge your growing horde or electronics, and even better for travel where precious power outlets are few and far between. [Mpow 25W/5A 4-Port USB Wall Charger, $10 with code S3PLBW3H]

If you want the same charging capacity on the road, this 4-port car charger will do the trick for the same price. [Aukey 48W/9.6A 4 Port USB Car Charger Adapter with AIPower Tech, $10 with code 8OJJDQ4B]

Update: If this sells out, the wood paneled version is also available with the same promo code.

The honor of today’s best Bluetooth speaker deal goes to the GOgroove BlueSYNC BX speaker, marked down to an all-time low $20. That’s a fantastic price for a dual-drive speaker with NFC pairing, a USB port for optional local playback, and an all-too rare physical volume knob. [GOgroove BlueSYNC BX Portable Multimedia Bluetooth Speaker with NFC, $20 with code BLUESYNK]

Note: you must choose Premier Audio and Video as the seller for the promo code to work.

There’s not much to say about this knife-hiding key other than that it looks awesome, and only costs $8. Just don’t forget to leave it at home before you head to the airport. [SOG Specialty Knives KEY-101 Key Knife, $8]

The humble and inexpensive cast iron skillet is one of most important pieces of cooking gear you can own, and Lodge’s highly-rated 10” model is back down to $15 again on Amazon. If you don’t own one, you should have no hesitation. [Lodge LCS3 Pre-Seasoned 10-inch Cast-Iron Chef’s Skillet, $15]

Want to try out a Sonicare toothbrush without breaking the bank on one of your favorite high end models? You can grab a 2 Series or 3 Series kit for as little as $30 today on Amazon. Click here to see the full list of eligible models, and note that an additional $10 will be taken off in your cart. [Extra $10 off Sonicare 2 Series and 3 Series Toothbrushes]

We’ve seen SoundPeats’ Qy7 Bluetooth earbuds (and some very similar models) dip under $30 before, but TaoTronics’ creatively-named TT-BH05 Bluetooth earbuds are another great option. With a six hour battery, built-in microphone, and 4.4 star review average, they’re a pretty safe bet at this price, especially if you just bought an Apple Watch and need your first pair of wireless headphones. [TaoTronics TT-BH05 Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless Stereo Headset Earphones, $28]

If these sell out or you just like the looks of the Qy7s better, they’re the same price right now as well.
