Top Deals

Update: Now up to $11-$12, depending on the color.

A good step stool is something everyone should own, and this highly-rated model from Greenco can hold up to 300 pounds, then fold up to nearly nothing when you’re done using it. Today’s $10 deal is match for an all-time low, and you even get to pick from a variety of colors.

Update: Sold out

Whether you’re starting or expanding your collection, Amazon’s running a great deal today on your favorite rechargeable batteries.

$30 today gets you an Eneloop Power Pack, complete with eight AAs, two AAAs, two C and D spacers, and a charger. That’s about $7-$10 less than usual, and within a couple bucks of an all-time low.

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, here’s an entry level model for $32 (with code HEATWAVE) from Monoprice, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on any mechanical keyboard.


The keys don’t use name brand Cherry MX switches, but the switches it does include should closely mimic Cherry MX blues, which are tactile, loud, and great for typists.

I don’t care how old you are; mini basketball rings hoops are irresistible fun, and this highly rated model from SKLZ is just $11 right now on Amazon. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m gonna go work on my Tim Duncan bank shot.

Update: Sold out

Most juicers suck, but Breville’s are consistently among the highest rated on Amazon, and you can the popular Breville JE98XL for just $120 today on Amazon. That’s over $30 less than usual, and within $2 of the lowest price Amazon’s ever offered.


The JE98XL comes with a 3” feeding chute that can gobble up fruits whole, and an 850 watt motor to pulverize them without breaking a sweat. Most importantly though, its parts are dishwasher safe.

Need to fill out your summer wardrobe? Gap has something for just about everyone, and today, they’re taking 40% off sitewide with promo code HAPPY. Plus, all orders over $50 ship for free.

Wi-Fi OBD2 Scanner, $14 with code WIFIOBD5

You’ve heard of Automatic’s smart driving assistant, but if $80-$100 is too rich for your blood, this cheap OBD2 dongle connects to any iPhone or Android device over Wi-Fi, and can fulfill many of the same functions using various third party apps.

Vehemo 300W Inverter, $20 with code XNB5VX22

Everyone should keep an inverter in their glove box for powering laptops and other electronics in the car, and this 300W model is a great deal at $20.

The newest, big-screen Nest Learning Thermostat 3.0 is down to $199 today on eBay, which is a match for the best discount we’ve ever seen. These don’t go on sale all that often, so if you have one on your wish list, I wouldn’t hesitate.

While not without its flaws, Garmin’s Vivofit fitness tracker is unique in offering a truly waterproof design, the ability to pair with a heart rate monitor, and most notably, over a year of battery life via a standard watch battery. When it launched a couple years ago, the tracker and an optional chest strap heart rate monitor would have set you back $170, but now, you can get both for just $47 with promo code SUMMER. Note: Not valid on the black model.

Don’t want the heart rate strap? You can still get a bare refurb for $30.

High quality for running shoes for a reasonable price can be hard to come by, but these Asics GEL-Pulse 7s are on only $55 today in Amazon’s Gold Box, for both men and women. The deal is only available today though, so run, don’t walk over to Amazon to lock in your order.

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 $170 on Amazon, and today’s $105 (shipped) deal on Woot is the best prices we’ve ever seen.

For a limited time, Under Armour is shipping every order for free with no minimum. That includes everything from new arrivals to outlet and sale items. Unfortunately, the Chef Curry 2 Lows are sold out in white, but there’s still a lot to choose from.

RAVPower 10400mAh Power Bank, $16 with code K8KJZZW2

Battery pack deals have been coming fast and furious since the release of Pokémon Go, and this 10,400mAh RAVPower is a solid deal at $16 (with promo code K8KJZZW2). In addition to a slim design and two charging ports, the headline feature here is its 2A input, meaning you recharge it twice as quickly as most competing chargers.

If your phone supports Quick Charge 2.0 or 3.0, you might want to take a look at yesterday’s Jackery Thunder deals.

LEGO has come to be dominated by licensed sets with strict instructions and little room for creativity, but you can still buy a big ol’ box of LEGO bricks for $15 on Amazon today, an all-time low. It doesn’t include Han Solo or a Minecraft creeper, but you will get 303 pieces to build whatever you want.

Poweradd Worldwide Travel Router, $20 with code VFD58FFV

You may not need a travel router all that often, but if you ever find yourself in an ethernet-only environment, you’ll be really glad to have one. This $20 model from Poweradd includes multiple international outlet attachments so you can use it around the world, and even doubles as a USB charger to boot.

Update: Now available from another seller for $86!

This is hardly the first time the Fitbit Charge HR has been available for $100, but if you’re in the market for a great fitness tracker, this is a solid deal.

If you have any home improvement projects on the horizon, this discounted Lowe’s gift card is like $8 in your pocket. I suggest spending it on a six pack to consume while you operate power tools.

20 discs and 4,398 minutes worth of Stargate Atlantis, all for just $39, far and away the best price we’ve ever seen.

Tiger makes some of the most popular rice cookers on the market, and this 5.5 cup (uncooked) model is available for $80 today on Newegg’s eBay storefront, or about $45 less than Amazon.

Gillette Fusion Proshield, $8 after clipping the $3 coupon

While there are obviously cheaper ways to shave, this $3 discount on a Gillette Fusion Proshield might be tempting if you want to take the infamous Flexball out for a spin.

As part of its Black Friday in July sale, Best Buy is offering up $5 gift cards when you purchase $50 in select gift cards to other retailers, or $10 when you buy $100.


Your options here include rarely discounted gift cards from the likes of Netflix, Google Play, and Hulu, so if you were going to spend money on those services anyway, this is a great chance to get an extra cherry on top from Best Buy.

Smartwool Sale on Moosejaw. More Moosejaw sales here.

Moosejaw is running a big sale right now on several brands of outdoor apparel, but Smartwool is the one you really want to pay attention to. Smartwool socks and jackets are incredibly popular, but hardly ever see significant discounts.


Even on sale, this stuff still isn’t exactly cheap, but this is a great chance to build up your collection if you’re a fan.

While supplies last (which usually isn’t long), Amazon will sell you a sample box full of dog foods and treats for $10, and then give you a $10 credit back on a future pet food purchase. Assuming you use the credit, that’s like getting all of the samples for free.

And if you missed out over the weekend, the same deal is still available on a $10 Amoretti syrup sample box, plus a $5 Crest oral care box.

TaoTronics LED Desk Lamp, $30 with code CC3OTE2X

You can adjust the color temperature of this LED desk lamp by sliding your finger along its arm, or change the brightness by doing the same on its base. Plus, its brushed aluminum design looks way nicer than most LED desk lamp deals we’ve seen.

Jackery Thunder Quick Charge 3.0 Battery Packs. 10,050mAh for $22, 20,100mAh for $32 with code THUNDERJ

Jackery’s newest battery packs include Quick Charge 3.0, and they’re offering $8 launch discounts on both the 10,050mAh and 20,100mAh varieties today. Just use promo code THUNDERJ at checkout.

Whether you’re enticed by the idea of a Bluetooth-connected toothbrush, or just want it to get off your lawn, $85 is a great deal for an Oral-B toothbrush with a pressure sensor, five modes, and compatibility with several different brush heads.


If you want to pair it with your phone to track your brushing habits and learn which parts of your mouth aren’t getting enough attention, great! If not, it’s still worth buying at this price. Just be sure to clip the $15 coupon.

Aukey Portable Jump Starter, $57 with code JSTARTER

We’re no strangers to portable car jump starter/USB battery pack combos around these parts, but this new model from Aukey is unique in its ultra-compact, flashlight-like design. In addition to its 12,000mAh USB power bank, it can put out 400 peak amps through a set of included jumper cables, which should be sufficient to start most standard car engines.

Mpow 20-LED Motion Sensing Solar Light, $17 with code J39W2P58 | 2-Pack for $31 with code HLI2K3TG

Mpow’s extra large motion-sensing solar outdoor lights can illuminate your entire front or back yard, and you can get one for $17, or two for $31 today on Amazon.

Mpow 3-in-1 Clip On Lens Kit, $9 with code HTXJ27KD

Unlike smartphone lens add-ons that require a special case or a specific phone model, Mpow’s 3-in-1 kit uses a clamp to attach to your device, which means it should work with virtually any smartphone. Once that clip’s in place, you get to choose from three different lenses: Fisheye, wide angle, and macro. Several Amazon reviewers have uploaded sample photos and videos, and they look pretty great to my eyes, particularly the close-up macros.

Raspberry Pi 3 Ultimate Starter Kit, $57 with code D9UXNAIL

You can seemingly build just about anything with a Raspberry Pi, including your own miniature NES, and here’s a great deal on the newest Raspberry Pi 3. The kit comes with everything you need to get started, and will only set you back $57 with promo code D9UXNAIL.

We see a lot of deals on Eneloop AA batteries, but your collection isn’t complete without those pesky AAAs. While supplies last, Amazon will sell you a 12-pack for $20, or about $6 less than usual.

ONME Magnetic Cord Manager, $8 with code CNETONME

Just when you thought you knew everything there was to know about cable management, the depths of Amazon toss you a surprise. This magnetic cable clip system includes one magnetic base that you can stick anywhere via its included adhesive, and three magnetic clips that you attach to your most-used cables, allowing them to stick to the base effortlessly.


There are surely less expensive cable holders out there—we post deals on them frequently—but the allure of just dropping your cable onto a magnetic base and knowing that it’ll stay put is awfully tempting.

Away Travel, $20 off with code KINJA, free shipping, expires 7/25 at 11:59pm.

Away Travel arrived with a perfect set of reasonably-priced luggage for everyone, and they’re offering Kinja Deals readers the company’s first ever discount. Use promo code KINJA to take $20 off your order, and head over to this post to learn more.

While we do see 20% discounts from time to time, a $100 iTunes gift card for $85 is still a solid deal if you pay for Apple Music, iCloud storage, or PokéCoins.

2-Pack Lightning Cables, $8 with code HZ4AQL26

With a few rare exceptions, $4 is about as cheap as Lightning cables ever get, so stock up!
