Withings’ Activité Steel is a fitness tracker that looks like a million bucks, but today, it’ll only cost you $83.

Just like a Fitbit, the Activité Steel will measure your steps, running distance, calories burned, sleep cycles, and even swimming activity. The difference is that rather than displaying all of that info on an eyesore of an LCD screen, it’s all boiled down to a single analog dial on the face of an attractive, minimal watch. If you want to see more detailed stats, just pull out your phone and sync the watch over Bluetooth.

Not only does this analog design look way better than the alternatives, it’s also a boon for battery life. The Activité steel can run for 8 months at a time on a standard watch battery, no charging required.

For a limited time, you can clip the 30% coupon on the Activité Steel’s Amazon page to get the black model for just $83, or the white model for $94. And no, I don’t know why it costs more.

Need a lot of extra storage for your Nintendo Switch or action cam? The advent of 200GB+ cards means that 128GB cards, which until relatively recently sold in the $60-$80 range, are finally inching towards affordability.

Three Amazon Echo Dots, $130 with code DOT3PACK
Advertisement

Amazon’s Alexa is basically the operating system of the home, but to fully appreciate it, you need to scatter Echoes and Echo Dots around your house until they can basically hear your from anywhere. If you’re ready to fully commit, Amazon’s offering a solid discount on the already-affordable Echo Dot when you buy three.

This was initially supposed to be a one-week promotion, but it seems Amazon’s extended the deal at least through April 25.

Advertisement

To get the deal, just add three Dots to your cart, and use promo code DOT3PACK at checkout. The $130 you’ll spend is, somewhat incredibly, $50 less than a single full-sized Amazon Echo. The Dots’ speakers obviously aren’t as good, but you can plug them in or pair them over Bluetooth to any other speaker you have lying around, which makes them perfect little omnipotent, voice-activated Music streamers.

iPad 32GB, $299

Apple’s newest iPad is mostly notable for being cheap (by Apple standards), and Staples is making it even more enticing with an extra $30 discount. But be warned, it seems that the only one they have in stock is the 32GB Space Grey.


TP-Link Archer C7, $80 after $10 coupon
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 $80 today after you clip the $10 coupon on the page. We’ve seen it a little bit lower a few times in the last few months, but that’s still a solid price if you’re sick of videos buffering at home.

Anker Selfie Stick, $8 with code BEST7160
Advertisement

Selfie sticks are still a thing, much to my personal dismay, so if you really have to have one, here’s an $8 deal on Anker’s. This one relies on a headphone jack connection for shutter control, rather than Bluetooth, which I think is actually preferable (assuming your phone has a headphone jack). It’s one less thing to keep charged, and you won’t have to fiddle around in the Bluetooth menu on your phone, which is basically the seventh circle of hell.

SoundPeats Wireless Earbuds with Charging Case, $39 with code SSW39MZ5 | SoundPeats Wireless Earbuds, $35 with code PJAYDX5E
Advertisement

Apple may have popularized truly wireless headphones, but for more affordable options are finally starting to come to market.

Today you can choose from two true wireless earbud models from SoundPeats. The cheaper $35 model looks exactly like the Axgio Dash headphones I wrote about here, which enjoy a solid six hours battery life, but include no charging case, meaning you’ll have to plug them in to a microUSB cable once the batteries die.

Advertisement
Advertisement

For just $4 more though, you can opt for smaller earbuds that do come with a convenient charging case. They’ll only last half as long as the cheaper earbuds while untethered, but the case can fully recharge them in an hour, and has enough capacity for three charging cycles. Plus, it means you’ll only have to plug one thing in, instead of two.

Inateck HDD/SSD Enclosure, $11 with code 3ZNBOI4L
Advertisement

External enclosures can turn your old SSDs and hard drives into useful external storage, and this $11 option from Inateck is about as inexpensive as they get. If you happen to own a PS4 and still haven’t picked out an external drive, you could use this to build your own.

If 49" is big enough for your needs, you’d be hard pressed to find a better TV deal than this. The LG 49UJ7700 includes a 4K panel, Dolby Vision HDR (the good one), and even an IPS screen for better viewing angles. $579 is over $200 less than you’ll find it elsewhere, but we don’t expect it to last long.

If you’ve ever run out of space on your Android device, or wanted to transfer large files between two devices, this clever flash drive might be just what you’re looking for.

The popular SanDisk Ultra Dual is down to just $10 on Amazon today for Prime members. That’s a no-brainer purchase if you’ve ever filled up your phone with vacation photos, or wanted to transfer a movie between your phone and a tablet. One end is a microUSB plug, and the other is a standard USB, so you can plug it into most Android phones, tablets, and also computers.

Tablo DVR, $167
Advertisement

So you’re ready to cut out your cable subscription and start using an HDTV antenna, but you still want to be able to DVR your favorite network broadcasts. What do you do?

Advertisement

The easy answer is to get a TiVo OTA, but it costs almost $350 with lifetime service, and only has 1TB of non-expandable storage. The Tablo DVR is a worthy competitor, and is only $167 right now, albeit with a few caveats.

Advertisement

The most obvious difference between the DVRs is that Tablo doesn’t actually plug into your TV over HDMI. Instead, it streams its contents over Wi-Fi to apps on your mobile devices or smart TV dongles. That’s a little bit fussy if you’re just trying to watch Jeopardy on your big screen TV, but awesome in that it basically turns your tablets and phones into portable live TVs themselves.

Unlike TiVo, Tablo also lacks built-in storage. You’ll need to plug in a USB hard drive to save your shows, but chances are you already have one laying in a drawer somewhere, and this setup makes it much easier to upgrade your DVR later on.

Advertisement

And while Tablo will provide some basic functionality for free, you will need to pony up $5/month, $50/year, or $150 for a lifetime data subscription, which is significantly less than TiVo, but still not nothing. That subscription unlocks features like automatic series recording, a more interactive programming guide, and crucially, the ability to stream content around the world, rather than just on your home Wi-Fi.

So in the end, Tablo isn’t actually that much cheaper than the TiVo OTA, but it’s probably better suited for the way most people watch TV these days, and today’s Amazon deal is about $30 less than usual.

This $9 Aukey car charger includes both Quick Charge 3.0 and a USB-C port, making it one of the most forward-looking car chargers out there. This would be an amazing price for a charger with just one of those features, so to get them both for under $10 is pretty remarkable.

Anker SoundBuds Slim, $22 with code BEST3235
Advertisement

Anker’s SoundBuds are our readers’ favorite affordable Bluetooth headphones, and the newest version is back down to its 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.

Elago’s Macintosh-themed Apple Watch charging stand was the cutest thing at CES this year, and now you can say hello to it for $10 from Amazon, or $4 less than its launch price.

Mpow basically invented the sub-$20 Bluetooth earbud market, but it turns out they also make wireless over-ears, and you can get (or gift) a pair for just $21 today.

Since you named Anker’s kevlar-lined PowerLine cables as your favorite Lightning cables, the company has come out with the nylon-braided PowerLine+ collection, and the lifetime warrantied PowerLine IIs. But the originals are still way better than the crappy cable Apple includes in the box, and today, you can get three of them for the same price Apple charges for one.

Advertisement

Anker’s PowerCore battery packs are your favorite portable chargers, and it’s not even close. And today, two of the most popular models are $4-$5 less than usual. These don’t include Quick Charge or USB-C like some newer models, but they’re compact workhorses that will reliably keep your devices powered on for days at a time.

Update: Sold out

If you want a security camera to check in on your house without spending a ton of money, this model from TaoTronics has a ton of features for just $45. You can pan, tilt, and even use the camera as a two-way intercom via your smartphone, and it’ll also send you a push notification when it detects motion.

Advertisement

Unlike some higher end cameras, this one doesn’t have a cloud DVR feature, opting instead to store your saved clips to a microSD card. That makes it somewhat less useful for catching thieves (they could just, you know, steal the camera), but it means you won’t have to pay any monthly fees, and it should be more than adequate for saying hi to your dogs during your lunch break.

Wuudi Wine Decanter, $20 with code PJCW6C7J

Here’s a secret about hosting people for dinner: If you put the wine in a fancy looking carafe, it’ll trick them into thinking you spent more than $8 on the bottle.

Everyone should keep an inverter in their glove box for powering laptops and other electronics in the car, and $10 is a great price for this 150W model from Aukey.

The newest, big-screen Nest Learning Thermostat 3.0 is down to $219 today, a rare $30 discount. These go down to $199 once or twice per year, but if you have one on your wish list, this is a pretty good opportunity.

Advertisement

While Nest basically invented the smart thermostat market, many people (including myself) would tell you that the Ecobee3 thermostat is superior to the Nest, owing to its remote sensor that measure the air temperature at another point in your home. I also usually sells for $250, but it’s available for $199 $195 this month.

This microfiber towel is considered by many detailing aficionados to be the best for drying off your car after you wash it. In fact, I can personally confirm that it’s less a towel and more a towel-shaped sponge. It’s also down to one of the lowest prices Amazon’s ever listed.

Your favorite travel mug comes in a few different sizes, but 20 ounces is the sweet spot as far as I’m concerned, and you can pick one up from Amazon for $13 today.

The 20 oz. mugs typically sell for $15-$20, so this is a solid deal on something you’ll use almost every day.

Amazon’s taking 20% off Airheads for Easter, which doesn’t make a ton of sense since they’re too big to fit in eggs, but whatever. There are a ton of flavor options here, but the one you should choose is “White Mystery,” which isn’t actually a Big Little Lies tie-in.

Bodum’s double walled drinking glasses keep your beverages hot or cold for longer, and look awesome while doing it. If you want to give them a try, Amazon’s selling 2-packs of 12 ounce tumblers for $17 right now, and a pair of espresso mugs for $7 (as an Add-On Item). I’ll drink to that.

Update: Now up to $16

Go to your nearest home goods store, and you’ll find dozens of airtight containers to keep food and coffee fresh. But the Friis coffe vault takes things one step further with a valve and filter that lets your roast beans vent off CO2 without opening the lid, which keeps them fresher for longer.

If your wiper blades have seen better days, Amazon will sell you two Michelin Stealth replacements today for $20. Just add any two to your cart (shipped and sold by Amazon.com), and the price will automatically be reduced to $20 at checkout. The deal even works if you buy two different sized blades, so you should have no trouble finding a combination that fits your car.


iClever Himbox Bluetooth Car Adapter, $10 with code 5PIKJ5H8

If you want to get Bluetooth audio streaming and handsfree calling in your old car, iClever’s Himbox makes it easy. Just plug it into a USB charger and your car’s AUX port, pair your phone, and it’ll be just like you bought a new car, except you only spent $10.

Everyone with a kitchen should own a Lodge cast iron skillet, but this grill pan certainly has its uses as well. $16's a pretty great price considering it should last the rest of your life, as long as you take good care of it.

It’s about time you do some cleaning out of your drawers. Get rid of those laundry-day-only undies in favor of something you’ll actually like wearing. Aerie is giving you 10 undies for only $35, no code needed, which is kind of insane seeing as they usually sell them for $12+.

Plus, if you don’t really need underwear, but still want to feel like you’re getting something new, all swimwear, apparel, and accessories are 40% off. It’s worth a little bit of a dig.

I know this “tactical spork” is designed for camping, but if I owned one, I’d probably use it at home on a regular basis. The best part is undoubtedly the hidden knife that uses the spork handle as a sheath, but the $8 price tag is a close second. Just don’t try to bring it on an airplane.

It’s that time again. Nordstrom Rack has brought back their Clear the Rack sale and it’s full (and I mean FULL) of really incredible deals. Designer clothing, brands you’ve never heard of, everything an extra 25% off.

The sales at GAP are usually 40-50% off and happen fairly often. What doesn’t happen often is GAP marking down a ton of styles to 60% off and then giving you that sitewide 40% off on top with the code HOPTOIT. The exclusions for the sitewide discount unfortunately include denim, but there are a bunch of jeans in the 60% off section at really great prices.

The Fast & Furious franchise just got another box set, this time with a bonus disc, lenticular packaging, and space for The Fate of the Furious once it comes out.

Preorder Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, $48 for Prime Members
Advertisement

Prime members can preorder and save 20% on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for their Nintendo Switch, which isn’t unusual (that benefit applies to all preorder and new release games), but if recent history is any indication, they could very well sell out of copies prior to launch. As always, you won’t see the discount until checkout.

If you’re planning on hosting a Mario Kart party, you may want some extra Joy-Con or Pro Controllers to go with it.

The same 20% discount applies to Splatoon 2 and Super Mario Odyssey, but the former won’t be out until July, and we still don’t have a release date for the latter.

It wasn’t that long ago that PS4 discounts were basically impossible to find, but my how times have changed. Not only is this Call of Duty Infinite Warfare PS4 Slim bundle $30 off, it also comes with an extra DualShock 4. You were going to buy that extra gamepad regardless, so that’s basically a ~$75 discount on an already-affordable console.


The most recent Doom game is...exactly what you’d expect it to be, which is mostly a good thing. If it’s been on your wishlist, it’s back down to $20 on Amazon for Xbox One, and PS4, matching an all-time low.
