Microsoft’s Surface 3 is a little long in the tooth at this point, but if you happen to be in the market for a tablet that runs the full version of Windows 10, and don’t want to spend a ton of money, it’s a solid deal at $255 for a refurb. Just note that this deal is only available today, or until sold out.
Unlike most sound bars, Bose’s highly rated Solo 15 sound system is deep enough for your TV to actually sit on, if that would work better for your current home theater arrangement. If you’re still listening to audio through your TV’s built-in speakers, this will be revelatory.
The Solo 15 is on sale from Adorama for $299 today, matching the best price we’ve seen. It’s only available today though, so be sure to grab yours while you can.
As nice as it is to control your lights with your phone, or even with your voice, sometimes an old fashioned light switch still presents the path or least resistance. Luckily, Philips makes one for its Hue bulbs; you just stick it to your wall (no wiring required), program it to control up to 10 lights, and hit the buttons to turn your bulbs on or off, or even dim them.
Today on Amazon, you can get the switch and a Hue White bulb for $28, or only about $4-$5 more than the usual price of the switch by itself.
And in case you missed it yesterday, you can still get individual Hue color bulbs for $41, or $9 less than MSRP.
You probably take at least four USB-powered gadgets with you any time you travel, and this compact charger can power them all up at once. With a compact design and a folding plug, it’s designed to slip in to any suitcase.
Logitech’s K400 keyboard/trackpad combo was the top-selling item among our readers from yesterday’s Logitech Gold Box, but if you missed out, it’s still on sale for the same all-time low $18. We aren’t sure if this is an oversight on Amazon’s part, but I wouldn’t expect it to last long regardless.
If your phone supports Quick Charge 3.0, you’ll get the most juice out of your commute with this $9 USB charger, which features QC on both ports, rather than only one like most competitors.
Don’t have a Quick Charge-compatible phone? This miniscule dual port charger is also a great deal.
Samsung’s Chromebook Pro is a bit expensive by Chromebook standards, but it’s worth every penny. It debuted only a few months ago at $550, but you can already get it for an all-time low $499 today on Amazon.
So what makes this thing so special? Its 2400 x 1600 touchscreen display jumps off the page, as do its included stylus and ability to fold into a tablet. But the headlining feature here is full Google Play support, meaning you can download and run over a million Android apps to expand the laptop’s capabilities. Now some of those will work better than others, and lag can be a problem with certain apps, but the fact is that Chrome OS isn’t just a browser window anymore. It can even run Photoshop!
Update: You can also get an extra battery for free. Check out the special offers section of the product page to find the details.
This model doesn’t shoot in 4K, but it does feature 1080/60, and the footage and photos it takes look fantastic. You can even control it wirelessly with your phone, or transfer your captures over Wi-Fi for instant sharing. This was briefly available for $60 on Prime Day, so today’s $55 deal is the best we’ve ever seen.
With its 24 hour battery life, impressive bass, and crystal clear sound quality, the Anker SoundCore has long been our readers’ favorite affordable Bluetooth speaker. But its run may be at an end, because Anker just upgraded it with IPX5 water resistance, and you can get the new model for an all-time low $34 today.
The SoundCore 2 still includes dual drivers and that amazing 24 hour battery; the only real differences are a slightly tweaked design and the aforementioned water resistance. That means you can take it to the pool, the beach, or even the shower without fear.
Featuring an eight foot power cord, 11 AC outlets, and two USB ports, this APC surge protector is exactly what you need behind your home theater or office desk. $24 is an all-time low, and it even includes a lifetime warranty.
With its incredibly durable construction and lifetime warranty, Anker’s PowerLine II Dura might be the last Lightning cable you ever have to buy. For a limited time, you can get the 10' model (white and black only) for just $13, or about $2 less than usual, and about $.25 less than the 6' one. I have one of these running behind my couch for a leisurely charging experience - five stars would recommend.
USB-C is eating the world, so it’s probably a good idea to invest in quality cables that will last. Anker’s PowerLine cables are our readers’ favorites, and the nylon-wrapped PowerLine+ models are even better. Get a USB 3.0 to USB-C 6' cable for $10 today, or about $4 less than usual.
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!

Unlike cheaper travel pillows that you have to inflate with air, the Evolution is made of memory foam, and wraps all the way around your neck to provide support no matter what direction your head falls when you nod off. You won’t win any fashion awards while you’re using it, but you won’t care, because you’ll be asleep.
These pillows almost never go on sale, so if you have any trips on the horizon (or not), you won’t want to miss out on this one. This deal is only available today.
Iced coffee is a brilliant way to sell people ice for the price of coffee (which is mostly water to begin with). Cold brew on the other hand is a different process that results in less acidity, among other benefits, and you can do it yourself at home with this top-selling Takeya, now down to $19 on Amazon.
This non-coffee drinker bought one of these last year, and I’m absolutely in love with it. All you have to do is fill the basket with ground coffee, fill the container with water, and let it steep overnight in the fridge. The resulting coffee concentrate needs to be watered down, so one batch should last you several days.
Amazon’s listed slightly lower prices on a few occasions, but $19 is the best we’ve seen in several months, and ‘tis the season for cold coffee.
This Black & Decker drill isn’t as powerful as some others that we’ve posted, but it’s good enough to basic tasks around the house, and it includes a bunch of other tools and accessories for just $40 today, about $10 less than usual. This would be a great gift for a college student that’s about to move into their first apartment.
We’ve seen deals on several car-friendly air compressors lately, but this model from Black & Decker will run off both wall outlets and car outlets, so you can use it for sporting equipment, pool inflatables, and anything else around your house, in addition to car tires.
It won’t turn you into LeBron James or anything (only the precise blend of Powerade and Sprite can do that), but Amazon’s one-day sale on Gatorade bars and beverages is a nice chance to save on products that any athlete or wannabe athlete will probably buy anyway.
The two best things you can add to your outdoor space are string lights and a fire pit, and while we see deals all the time on the former, the latter is a bit harder to find. Today though, Amazon has one for $41, and it actually looks pretty nice!
Pack all your stuff in the right compartments with Amazon’s one-day sale on bags that are made especially for traveling. Pick up a new briefcase, a cord organizer, a DSLR bag, and more, all for $100 or under.
Aukey made an orb of light that you can take anywhere, and it’s only $15 today with promo code AUKEYLP1. The light can sit on your table, hang from above, stick to any magnetic surface, and even float in the pool while putting out five hours of light at max brightness with its built-in battery. Oh, it’s also an RGB lamp, so you can change its color too.
We’ll probably be a Russian colony soon, so you might as well start assimilating to the culture by buying a dash cam. This one from Aukey includes a 1080p Sony sensor and 170 degree field of view, two different mounting options, and capacitors that are rated to work in temperatures from -4°F to 149°F.
The RoboVac 11 from Eufy (a division of Anker) is one of your favorite robotic vacuums, and in my own testing, it’s every bit as good—and far quieter—than my Roomba. So if it’s been on your radar, our readers can save $33 today with promo code KINJA815.
The final price of $187 isn’t the best deal we’ve seen on this (it went down to $150 for a few glorious hours in May), but it’s still over $100 less than the comparable Roomba, so if it’s been on your shopping list for awhile, this is a solid chance to save.
Update: Now up to $183, which is still a good price, historically.
Today only, Amazon’s offering one of the best prices ever on a near-perfectly reviewed DEWALT lithium-ion combo kit as part of a Gold Box deal.
$178 gets you a brushless impact driver, a drill/driver, a tool bag, and a pair of rechargeable batteries. That’s actually $2 less than a Gold Box deal on the same set from April.
If you use a Keurig coffee maker (no judging), Amazon’s latest sample box is a no-brainer. $8 gets you seven or more K-cup samples from multiple providers (including some “samples” with three cups each), plus an $8 credit to spend on your next eligible K-cup purchase from Amazon. Assuming you were going to buy coffee from Amazon anyway, that’s like getting the samples for free.

Note: This sale ends tonight at midnight.
That’s the best price Indochino’s offered on this wide a variety of suits, and $20 less than previous exclusive deals we’ve posted.
You do not have to go through the measurement and customization process to lock in this discount. You can checkout now and submit later, which makes it very easy to gift a suit.
Having a suit that fits perfectly is great, but the little details Indochino lets you customize, from your jacket lapels to pocket flaps to accent stiching around your buttons, are where things get fun.
How It Works
Measure and customize from home...
Follow the directions on Indochino’s site to submit your measurements and customize your suit. Once the suit arrives, if anything doesn’t fit quite right, Indochino will provide directions for your local tailor, along with a $75 credit to cover their work. If for whatever reason your tailor cannot resolve the issues, Indochino will remake your suit. Shipping and return shipping are free.
If you live near a showroom...
Purchase your suit online with our discount and take your receipt/account info into an Indochino showroom. They’ll do your measurements, walk you through your customization options, and have your suit delivered to the showroom. Return once it arrives for any final alterations if they’re needed.

Dorco, the best deal in shaving, just released the Fall Bonanza men’s pack, with enough razors to get you through the fall (especially if you participate in No Shave November), and probably for several seasons after that too. Promo code KINJA816 knocks the pack down to $27, and gets two shaving systems, 20 cartridges, and nine disposables.
C4 by Cullucor is America’s top-selling pre-workout supplement, and you can try it out for $6 off today. The $6 Amazon coupon will be reflected at checkout, and it should work on all flavors shipped and sold by Amazon (though it seems like Fruit Punch is the cheapest option right now).
If you missed out on our exclusive Privé Revaux discount earlier in the summer, here’s another chance to pick from 50 different frames for just $24 each, because sunglass season isn’t over yet.
Update: Privé just added a few of their most popular styles to sale for 25% off with promo code PRIVER25.
Just check out all of the styles here, and use promo code PRIVER20 on any of them to save 20% at checkout. Yes, the models are celebrities looking super awkward who probably had nothing better to do, but the frames are actually pretty great looking. Our entire team is wearing these glasses now, and we love them.
Newbury Mills has quickly become one of our favorite shirt makers, with offerings that can be dressed up or down, worn tucked or untucked, and with or without a tie. They also resist wrinkles well and are 100% soft SUPIMA cotton. Our readers can grab 3 or more for $47 each, or one for $59 with codes KINJA040 and KINJA025 respectively.
While not nearly as good as Sunday’s (likely) price mistake deal, $31 for 20 pairs of Crest 3D Whitestrip treatments is still a very solid deal. Just be sure to clip the $10 coupon.
Now that the weather’s nice enough to exercise outdoors (or at least tell yourself that you will), Nordstrom Rack’s running a pretty solid sale on Adidas apparel and shoes for men, women, and kids. It’s a good time to stock up on basics to throw on for the gym, or running errands.
Amazon’s back at it again with another sample box deal. This time around, $8 gets you eight or more protein products from Optimum Nutrition, plus an $8 credit on your next eligible protein purchase from Amazon. If you were going to buy any of these products anyway, then this is a no-brainer.
Top Media Deals
Amazon’s marked down three Fast & Furious two-film packs to $11 each today. Just order yours fast, because if they sell out, you’ll be...quite upset I would imagine.
iTunes gift card discounts are noticeably less common than they used to be, and 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 apps, movies, Apple Music, or iCloud storage.
Hidden Figures was one of 2016's best films, and you can own it digitally for just $5 today.
Top Gaming Deals
If you own an Xbox One, you’ll probably spend some money on games, DLC, and movie downloads eventually, so you might as well save 10% when you have the chance. We don’t know how long this will last, but Amazon’s currently taking 10% off Xbox gift cards in denominations of $100, $70, $60, $40, $30, and $10, with instant email delivery.
Nintendo’s AA Joy-Con battery grips allow your controllers to run for longer on a charge, yes. But just as importantly, they make them a lot more comfortable to hold. Get a set for an all-time low $20, and throw a few rechargeable AAs in your cart while you’re at it.
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 $16 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.
Tokaido always seems to be included whenever Amazon runs a wide-ranging board game sale, but today, it’s within a couple bucks of an all-time low price all on its lonesome.
From Board Game Geek:
In Tokaido, each player is a traveler crossing the “East sea road”, one of the most magnificent roads of Japan. While traveling, you will meet people, taste fine meals, collect beautiful items, discover great panoramas, and visit temples and wild places but at the end of the day, when everyone has arrived at the end of the road you’ll have to be the most initiated traveler – which means that you’ll have to be the one who discovered the most interesting and varied things.
