Laptop bags that protect your computer during transport are usually all function and no form. And rightfully so. But this 15" Lifewit bag is actually incredibly attractive and functional, with durable genuine leather, a padded interior, and five pockets for things like your phone, chargers, and more. Use the code 3RGMI8QN and pick it up for $49.

Vogek Aluminum Notebook Stand, $22 with code VX2CXZFX
Advertisement

There are lots of aluminum laptop stands out there, but this is the only one I’ve seen that can fold completely flat to fit in a backpack, and prop up your laptop at two different angles. Plus, at $22 (with code VX2CXZFX), its also cheaper than most alternatives. Win-win.

TP-Link Archer C7, $72 with code 15TPLC7
Advertisement

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 $72 today with promo code 15TPLC7. It was down to $70 around Black Friday, but this is the best deal we’ve seen since the holidays.

J&L Swan Bluetooth Headphones, $11 with code G7HVVZXQ
Advertisement

Bluetooth headphones are cheap enough now that it makes sense to keep a few pairs handy, just like you used to with wired earbuds. At $11, these are perfect for tossing into a gym bag or luggage, just in case you ever need them.

Inateck 4-Port Portable USB Hub, $7 with code MAR4PHUB
Advertisement

We’re no strangers to USB hub deals, but this one is only $7, made of aluminum, and about as thin as physically possible, making it great for travel. That’s a winning combination.

Anker PowerCore 10400, $20 with code H88JFUX5
Advertisement

We all know that Anker’s PowerCores are far and away our readers’ favorite USB battery packs. But the 10400 model in particular, at least in my opinion, is the best choice for most people. It holds at least two full phone charges, includes two ports for sharing, and is small enough to fit in just about any pocket. Unless you’re going off the grid for multiple days at a time, that’s right in the Goldilocks zone for most people.

Anker PowerLine+ USB to USB-C Cable, $8 with code SDUSBC44 | 2-Pack MicroUSB to USB-C Adapters, $6 with code SDUSBC11
Advertisement

USB-C will take over the world before long, but in the meantime, these Anker discounts can help ease the transition. Choose from reader-favorite Powerline and Powerline+ cables, or transform any two microUSB cables to USB-C for just $6.

Update: The 3-pack pictured above has expired, but the other deals are still available.

Update: Here’s a C-to-C PowerLine+ cable for $12 as well.

RAVPower Filehub, $28 with code VZYR27KK
Advertisement

Right now, you can save $5 on RAVPower’s Filehub, which is actually two travel-friendly devices in one: A 3,000mAh USB battery pack, and a media streamer that can let you access files on USB flash drives and SD cards wirelessly from your phone or tablet. That’s perfect for, say, watching movies on a plane when your tablet is low on space.

TaoTronics 3D VR Headset, $10 with code LVHVZM7H
Advertisement

We’ve seen plenty of deals on “premium” Google Cardboard-compatible VR headsets, but this is one of the only ones we’ve seen that includes a magnetic button on the side, which means you won’t have to pair an external Bluetooth remote to navigate within VR apps. Seriously, if you haven’t played with Google Cardboard yet, you’ll have so much fun.

Anker’s SoundBuds are our readers’ favorite affordable Bluetooth headphones, and the newest version just dropped to an all-time low price.

Advertisement

The SoundBuds Slim are, as you might have gleaned from the name, far smaller than the originals. Heck, they look like a small set of wired earbuds; you might never guess there were batteries and Bluetooth radios in there. Despite the size, these buds are still rated for seven hours of battery life, and recharge fully in just 90 minutes.

There was a $6 launch day discount on these a few weeks ago that dropped them to $24, but if you missed out on that sale, they’re slashed to $22 today, no code required.

Top Home Deals

Half the time you spend vacuuming is spent plugging in, tripping over, or rolling up the power cord, but it’s 2017, and you don’t have to put up with it anymore. Today only, Amazon’s discounting four different cordless Black & Decker vacuums that will make cleaning time that much easier.

The cheapest option here is a hand vac that’s great for cars and tight spaces around the house, but all of the full-sized vacuums in the deal can shed some extensions and become hand vacs themselves, so that’s the route I’d go. The 16V 2-in-1 seems like a particularly good bet at $90, or roughly $25-$75 less than usual.

Just remember that like all Gold Box deals, these prices are only available today, so pick yours out before they’re all sucked up.

Redo your home for a lot less than you’d think while Target is marking down all their furniture up to 40%. Everything from living room accent chairs to a new headboard is discounted, which means you can replace those IKEA pieces with something at least a little sturdier.

Or, get ready for the spring with discounts on outdoor and patio furniture. It’ll help you get past the fact that for the second time this year, it was 65 degrees in NYC yesterday and it’s now snowing.

If your TV is still resting on top of a cable spool or milk crate you found by the side of the road in college, Amazon will ship you an attractive TV cabinet for just $89 right now.

At that price, you’re obviously getting particle board rather than hardwood, but it looks really nice, and can hold TVs up to 55" and 60 pounds, in addition to all of your miscellaneous home theater equipment.

Frito-Lay 50-Pack, $26 after 15% coupon

Chew on this: 50 single-serve snacks, including Cheetos, Doritos, Fritos, and Chewy granola bars for $26. Just note that you won’t see the 15% coupon savings until checkout.

Packing cubes can make organizing clothes and toiletries for your next trip a little less hellish, and this highly-rated set of four is only $16 today, complete with a bonus dirty laundry bag.

Buying headlight bulbs for your car before you need them will save you an inconvenient (and if it’s at night or raining, potentially illegal) trip to the auto parts store, and with this 15% Amazon coupon, you might as well stock up.

Philips Vision bulbs have great customer reviews, and come in tons of different sizes to fit most vehicles. Just note that you won’t see the 15% discount until checkout, and don’t forget to do a little Googling to make sure you’re getting the right set.

This stick-anywhere LED light seems pretty basic—it doesn’t have a motion sensor or rechargeable battery—but for $5, it’s pretty impressive that you can customize the brightness level and turn it on by tapping almost anywhere on the body. If you have any closets or cabinets without sufficient light, I can think of worse solutions.

2-Pack Aukey Magnetic Vent Mounts, $9 with code AUKPACK2
Advertisement

Magnetic smartphone vent mounts are the sleekest and easiest way to prop up your phone in the car, and you can get two mounts from Aukey for $9 today with code AUKPACK2. Even if you already have one in your own car (a pretty safe bet!), it’s worth tossing an extra into your luggage to use in rental cars whenever you travel.

Loftek 10W LED Work Light, $33 with code 10W4400M
Advertisement

This battery-operated LED work light puts out as much light as a 100W halogen, and its removable battery pack can even charge your phone over USB. It’s one of those things you might not have an immediate need for, but it’s not a bad idea to keep one handy in your garage, just in case.

We love reusable tumblers here, as do all of you. So does Starbucks, and right now they’re marking down select drinkware 30% so you can get your own branded reusable tumbler. Put your Starbucks coffee in some Starbucks mugs and call it a day.


320 Lysol Disinfecting Wipes, $9 after $2.50 coupon
Advertisement

Lysol wipes are one of the easiest ways to wipe down cabinets, and they’re a gift sent from the heavens whenever someone in your house has a cold. Assuming you’ve got some extra cabinet space, you should definitely pick up 320 wipes for $9 up with this clippable Amazon coupon.

Note: Discount shown at checkout.

Koogeek Smart Plug, $24 with code TQHF38XS
Advertisement

We see deals on WeMo switches and TP-Link Smart Plugs on a pretty regular basis, but this similar product from Koogeek is Apple HomeKit certified, and only $24 today, the best price we’ve seen.

Advertisement

Like those other smart switches, the Koogeek Wi-Fi Smart Plug includes an app for turning your electronics on and off, and putting them on a schedule. The key difference here is that you can also control it with Siri from your phone, or from Control Center in iOS 10. That’s a big deal if you’re an iPhone owner, and with promo code TQHF38XS, you’re not even paying a premium for it.

Vantrue’s popular dash cams are back on sale, and this time around, you get to choose from a whopping four different models.

Advertisement

Even the $50 N1 has essential features like 1080p recording, motion-detecting parking mode, and a G-sensor to save your data after a collision, but each step up the line gets you improved optics (wider viewing angles, lower f-stops, higher resolution), and the top-of-the-line N2 actually has a second rear-facing lens as well. Just be sure to note the promo codes below.

OxyLED 16' Strip Lights, $15 with code 1OXY5050
Advertisement

Strip lights can add dramatic accents to the undersides of cabinets and furniture, and this 16' strip from OxyLED can also glow in 20 different colors to fit your mood or decor, all for just $15.

If 16' is too long, you can cut this strip after every third light without damaging it, and if it isn’t long enough, you can even daisy chain multiple strips together with these inexpensive connectors.

Cooking eggs isn’t exactly rocket science, but I’d say the ability to make soft, medium, and hard boiled eggs, plus omlettes and poached eggs at the touch of a button is worth $16. The Dash Go is Amazon’s top-selling egg cooker, and carries a truly stellar 4.6 star review average from nearly 3,000 customers, so get it while it’s on sale.

Suaoki Air Compressor, $30 with code EZKR3ZHD
Advertisement

There are few things more irritating than noticing your tires are low on air, and then having to find a bunch of quarters, driving to the gas station, and cursing the heavens when the compressor shuts off before you’ve finished filling all four.

Instead, just buy this tiny $30 compressor, and fill up your own tires from anywhere. You can thank me later.

You should definitely not be thinking about work on a weekend (unless you work on weekends) but thinking about workwear is totally kosher. ModCloth wants to make sure your mornings are better by giving you 30% off all workwear. And their idea of “workwear” is...a little different. I’m lookin’ at you, wig dress.


Remington The Crafter, $32 after 20% coupon
Advertisement

Ready to give your mane the attention it deserves? Remington’s The Crafter comes with 10 trimming length settings, a 3 hour lithium-ion battery, and multiple detachable trimming heads for managing your stubble, and Amazon’s taking $8 off with a clippable coupon, for a limited time.

I’m not saying you could row this boat across the border to sneak into Canada, but I’m also not not saying it. If you’re a little less ambitious, it’ll also work fine in a pool or calm lake.

Men’s Grooming Sample Box, $10 + $10 Credit
Advertisement

Amazon’s back at it again with the sample box deals, and this time, $10 gets you six sample-sized men’s grooming items, plus a $10 credit towards dozens of full-sized items from this list. Assuming you use the credit, that’s like getting all of the samples for free.

5-Pack Modern Motif Socks, $30 with code 4QIEELUE
Advertisement

These Modern Motif socks prove that men’s dress socks don’t need to be drab and colorless, and today on Amazon, you can save $6 on a box of five pairs. There are several collections to choose from, but personally, I’m a fan of the Blue Steel collection.


The North Face sale at Nordstrom Rack
Advertisement

It may be basically Spring already, but that doesn’t mean you should pass up a good outerwear deal. Nordstrom Rack is marking down a bunch of The North Face jackets and coats for 30-40% off. Pick up a great coat and save it for next winter. Men’s, women’s and kids’ styles are all marked down.


Naipo Neck and Shoulder Massager, $38 with code 801Kinja
Advertisement

This neck massager may look like a torture device, but trust me when I say it’s the opposite. The weird arm things help you regular the pressure of the massager and it also heats up. Hell, it even comes with a car charger to use it during your commute. It’s like the best straight jacket you’ve ever worn.

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 $10, it’s something that should be on your Blu-ray shelf.

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 $50 iTunes gift card for $42.50 is still a solid deal if you pay for apps, movies, Apple Music, or iCloud storage.

Top Gaming Deals

Plague Inc. started as a video game that played sort of like a board game, and now, it’s an actual board game too. Amazon has it backordered by 1-2 months, but $35 is the best price they’ve ever listed. Happy killing!

Earlier Civilization games feature prominently in just about every PC gaming sale under the sun, but the price tag for Civ VI has been remarkably stubborn. Today though, Amazon’s taking $12 off the base game (unlocks via Steam), or $20 off the Digital Deluxe version, which includes a soundtrack and four post-release DLC packs. Hint: Get that one.

Pandemic Legacy is a co-op board game that raises the stakes by adding permanent (like, actually permanent) changes to the board as you play, and it’s amazing. It also happens to be marked down to $39 on Amazon today, matching the best price we’ve ever seen.

Featuring six programmable buttons, on-the-fly DPI switching, and buttons tested to 20 million clicks, the Logitech G302 Daedalus Prime is about as good as it gets in a $25 gaming mouse.

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, $40 - PS4 | Xbox One
Advertisement

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is scary as hell (and I’m not just talking about the scary-realistic teeth), and you can pick up a copy for $40 on Amazon, matching a one-day Gold Box deal from last week. Just don’t play it right before you go to bed.

When Sony rolled out the new PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro, they also quietly tweaked the DualShock 4 controller, and here’s another chance to get it for $40, with no sales tax for most buyers.

This is basically the same gamepad you know and love, but with a futuristic looking light bar at the top of the touchpad, and the ability to communicate over USB when plugged into your console for lag-free input.
