Top Deals

Whether you already have a Quick Charge 3.0-compatible phone, or you just want to be prepared for the future, Aukey’s discounting a pair compatible chargers. And yes, they’re both backwards-compatible with previous versions of Quick Charge as well.

Bonus: Here’s a Quick Charge 2.0 battery pack with an optional Lightning input port, for all you Apple users out there.


Samsonite 5-Piece Nested Luggage Set, $100 with code TRAVEL10. Available in black, navy, or red.

Need a fresh set of luggage before you head out on your summer excursions? BuyDig will sell you a complete five-piece Samsonite set (in black, navy, or red) for just $100 today with promo code TRAVEL10. For comparison’s sake, the same set is currently going for $220 on Amazon.

That gets you a 26" wheeled check bag, a 22" carry-on, a duffel bag, a tote, and a toiletry kit. The best part? Each piece includes a 10 year limited warranty, so this $100 investment should get you through years of travel.


Do these Insignia TVs have the best picture quality out there? Absolutely not. But they’re incredibly affordable today, and include built-in Roku software. Not bad if you need a new set for your bedroom or patio.


4-Port USB Charger + FREE 5-Pack MicroUSB Cables, $16 with code F3MI8FR2

If you somehow still don’t have a multi-port USB charging hub on your night stand, in your travel bag, or at your desk at work, this $16, 4-port model from RAVPower comes with a FREE five-pack of microUSB cables today. Just add both to your cart, and use code F3MI8FR2 at checkout.

What a week in video games, amirite? Now that E3 is winding down, it seems like a good time to remind everyone that Prime members can automatically save 20% on all preorder and new release (physical) video games, including special editions.

To help you find what you’re looking for, we just updated our game release calendar with all of the big new announcements. Be sure to let us know in the comments what you’re most excited to play!


ExOfficio’s Give-N-Go boxer briefs were a finalist in our recent best men’s underwear Co-Op, and our readers have gone on to purchase over 20,000 pairs since. They drop down to $15 with some regularity, but rarely any lower, so it’s a good day to stock up. That’s still pricey for a single pair of underwear, but reviewers say it’s worth it.

Note: I’m seeing the price on black, charcoal, and curfew, so if your size is out of stock in one color, check the others.


Summer wedding season is officially upon us, and if you’d like to not wear what you wore last summer (because who even knows where those shirts are), Jos. A. Bank is here for you. Buy one men’s shirt and get one free and look put together without even trying, or spending a lot of money.


For $9, you can own a real life book safe, just like the movies. The best part is that you don’t have to worry about someone stumbling upon it by mistake, because nobody actually uses printed dictionaries anymore.


RFID Blocking Leather Slim Wallet, $8 with code AWE4DVQ8

We’ve seen several deals lately on RFID-blocking front pocket wallets, but if none of them have been quite what you’re looking for, maybe this one will fit the bill. It’s leather, it can hold at least six cards, an ID, and some cash, and it’s only $8 today.


If you’re still rocking the $15 pans you bought at Walmart during college, it’s time to graduate to a real set of stainless steel cookware. This Cuisinart collection isn’t tri-ply like some other sets we’ve seen, but at just $13/piece, it’s eminently affordable. From the description:

13-Piece Set Includes: (1) 2 Quart Saucepan with Lid (1) 3 Quart Pour Saucepan with Straining Cover (1) 4 Quart Sauté Pan with Helper Handle and Lid (1) 5 Quart Pour Dutch Oven with Straining Cover (1) 8 Quart Stockpot with Lid (1) 8" Non-Stick Skillet (1) 10" Skillet (1) 18 cm Steamer Insert (Fits 2 Quart Saucepan)

Today’s price is about $90 less than usual, but note that it’s part of today’s Amazon Gold Box, so lock in your order before the deal boils over.


You don’t necessarily have to have children to appreciate Babyganics’ scent-free, hypoallergenic products, and Amazon’s taking an extra 30% off the following product lines:

Just note that the prices displayed on the promo pages do not take the 30% discount into account, so you won’t see your final price until checkout.


I freely admit that not everybody needs a miter saw. In fact, most people probably shouldn’t own one. But if you’re in the market, Amazon’s top seller is marked down to $99 today, the lowest price of the year. In addition to the #1 seller designation, the Hitachi C10FCE2 also carries a 4.5 star review average from over 1,000 customers, so there’s no need to measure twice here.


If your favorite (out of market) baseball team is still in the hunt for the playoffs, you can purchase a subscription to MLB.TV Premium for the rest of the regular season for just $50 today as part of a Father’s Day promotion. That’s 50% off the current regular price, and a great last minute gift idea. [MLB.TV]


1byone HDTV Antenna, $8 with code G8DUP8B5

If you want to try pulling in local HDTV channels over the air, this omni-directional antenna will only set you back $8, the best price we’ve seen on any HDTV antenna. It’s unamplified, so you’ll need to live pretty close to the transmitters, but if you do, this is a fantastic price.


If you’re ready to take the plunge into LED lighting, this 6-pack of higly-rated TCP soft white (2700K) bulbs is down to just $18 on Amazon right now, one of the best per-bulb prices we’ve ever seen. They aren’t dimmable, so you won’t want to put them in certain fixtures, but it’s a great bulk pack for filling out ceiling lights and lamps throughout your house.

Once you’ve got them, check to see if your local utility company offers rebates for purchasing LEDs. If so, it’s possible these could pay for themselves even quicker than they would otherwise.

If you prefer daylight bulbs, the equivalent 5000K pack is just a couple bucks more. If you want my advice, use daylight in rooms where you do things (offices, kitchens, bathrooms), and soft white in spaces where you want to relax (bedrooms, living rooms).


Want to pick up a new hobby? It’s easy to get into stargazing with Celestron’s AstroMaster 70AZ, which is down to $90 today as part of a Gold Box deal. While there are definitely more powerful telescopes out there, you’d be hard pressed to find a better option for under $100.

It’s not ideal for deep space objects like nebulae, but this telescope will give you great detail when looking at the moon, and will even allow you to observe the rings of Saturn, and the moons of Jupiter. Check out the photos uploaded by customers for an idea of what you’ll see.

Vantrue R2 Dash Cam, $100 with code UHBTWINY

Vantrue’s R2 dash cam was The Wirecutter’s runner-up pick, and you can save a whopping $50 on yours today with promo code UHBTWINY, bringing the price down to $100.

The R2 can shoot at resolutions exceeding standard 1080p (2560x1080 or 2304x1296), and its 170 degree field of view means you’ll never miss a license plate, crash, or meteorite. This deal is easily the best we’ve seen on this model, but we don’t expect it to last long.


Let’s start this off by saying I may or may not have half of whats on sale at ThinkGeek in my cart right now. With 70% off everything from the typical geek fare like an indoor-outdoor Death Star light and a Star Trek transporter pad LED coasters, to the more nuanced of geekery, like this swinging pendulum or anLED spectrum clock.

What to buy:

  • Star Wars BB-8 USB Car Charger | $28
  • Critical Hit +5 Stones of Frost | $13
  • Star Wars Stormtrooper Silicone Oven Mitt | $10
  • Planetary Glass Set | $30

Because drinking the whole bottle isn’t always an option, this $7 vacuum sealer can keep your wine fresher for longer.

Just insert one of the two included stoppers, place the hand pump on top, and pump until you hear a click. The system removes all of the excess oxygen from the bottle, slowing down the oxidation process that makes old wine taste sour. Does it actually work? Over 1,300 5-star reviews and an Amazon top-seller badge speak volumes, and if it saves even half a bottle of nice wine that would have otherwise gone to waste, it’ll have paid for itself.


If reliability is something you crave in a pair of shoes (if it isn’t, you may need to reconsider), I bet you have Cole Haan in your closet. And if you’re looking for a new pair but don’t want to spend the normal asking price, Amazon’s Gold Box has select Cole Haan styles for both men and women for under $99.


Nordstrom Rack, Clear the Rack sale

If you hurry up and head over to the “Clear the Rack” sale at Nordstrom Rack, you may just find a huge steal. While the homepage banner says “up to 75% off,” you can easily find pieces with a 90% discount. During the last “Clear the Rack” sale, I found a $500 Helmut Lang dress for $27. Just throwing that out there.

And when I say “huge steal,” I’m talking $900 Marc Jacobs bags for under $200, men’s Timberland boots for $90, Ella Moss sweaters for $23. Honestly, some of the prices may make you do a double take. But once these things sell out, they’re gone. So jump on these insanely low prices ASAP.


You don’t necessarily need to buy a smart outlet switch to schedule your lights or other appliances; this Intermatic timer can set three on/off intervals every day for just $10. The obvious use case here is to make your home looks occupied while you’re on vacation, but it could also control sprinkler systems, air conditioners, slow cookers, or basically anything else with a mechanical power switch and an AC plug.


Today only, B&H is offering up this 810 watt/1325-volt APC UPS for just $83, or about $50 less than its usual price.

If you use a desktop computer, this will of course keep your machine running without any interruption in the event of a power outage, which means you won’t lose any unsaved work. But even if you only use laptops and mobile devices at home, this could still run lamps, your router and modem, or even a TV until the power comes back on.



Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, $620

Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Edge is undoubtedly one of the best smartphones ever made, so if your current handset has seen better days, you can upgrade for $620 unlocked via the MobilePros eBay storefront, which is about $60 less than elsewhere. That’s still a lot of money in the age of the really good $300 smartphones, but if you’re a Samsung devotee, or are just exceptionally curious about that wraparound display, it’s still a solid discount.


Aluminum Mouse Pad, $8 with code E7XYRLYZ

Hardly anyone needs a mousepad, but this brushed aluminum one looks incredible, and its description says “Let [sic] you fondle admiringly,especially in the summer,” so there’s that.


We see a lot of deals on IR thermometers, but the Etekcity Lasergrip has been one of the most popular through the yaers. These things are perfect for everything from cooking to finding heating and air conditioning leaks in your house, but more importantly, they’re just a ton of fun to mess around with.


A good air mattress is something everyone should own, and this Queen sized model from Intex can be yours for just $40 right now, complete with a built-in pump.


I would say that prisons should replace solitary confinement with a program that forces inmates to repeatedly enter account passwords using a game controller and onscreen keyboard, but I think it might be even more inhumane. If you’re still subjecting yourself to the same treatment, do yourself a favor and pick up this $14 wireless keyboard/trackpad remote. It’s kind of ugly looking, but it’ll get the job done on your PS4, Xbox One, or home theater PC.
