Amazon’s Fire HD 10, a DEWALT combo kit, and an exclusive deal for our new Facebook community group lead off Monday’s best deals from around the web.
Top Tech Deals
We just launched a community-driven Facebook group where our readers can share the best deals they’ve found with each other, but we’ll also find some exclusive savings just for its members. We don’t want to give away the surprise, but the first such exclusive deal is available now, so go join the group to see the details!
Amazon appears to have killed off the Fire HD 10, which is a shame, because it was a really solid full-sized tablet for the money. Luckily, you still have a chance to get one as Amazon is clearing out refurbs for just $120 today. That’s $80 less than the usual refurb price, and $110 less than what Amazon used to charge for new ones.
If you’re still listening to your TV through its built-in speakers, stop what you’re doing and check out this Samsung sound bar, marked down to an all-time low $198. With a wireless subwoofer and seamless HDMI audio, it’ll be a massive aural upgrade for your home theater.
If you have an old hard drive or SSD lying around, or you just want to build your own external drive from scratch, this $7, 2.5" enclosure is one of the most affordable we’ve ever seen with UASP support, which allows for faster data transfer speeds when using an SSD.
The best all-around SSD for most people is down to $150 for 500GB, nearly $30 less than Amazon’s current price. It’d obviously be a great upgrade over a spinning hard drive for your computer, but you could also stick it in that aforementioned enclosure to turn it into a super-speedy external drive.
At first glance, the iClever BoostCell Eco looks like any bog standard USB battery pack, but if you look closely, you’ll also find a Lightning input port next to the standard microUSB port. That means that iPhone owners can recharge the battery pack without bringing a separate cable, and you can even plug in both inputs at once to recharge the battery twice as quickly.
If you want to cut the cord, but can’t abide earbuds, Sony’s popular on-ear MDRXB650BTs are on sale for $78 right now, within $10 of the all-time low we saw around Black Friday. These include NFC pairing, a built-in microphone, and 30 hours of battery life, and you even get your choice of three different colors.
Despite its tiny size, the GoPro HERO5 Session includes 4K recording and voice commands just like its bigger sibling (though obviously, it lacks a touchscreen), and you can get it for an all-time low $239 today, which is a tremendous price for a 4K-compatible action cam, let alone a tiny one.
If you’re in need of an extra-long USB-C cable to charge your phone or laptop while you lounge on the couch, the reader-favorite Anker PowerLine cable is down to $10 for 10', an all-time low.
You don’t need to sell a kidney to afford noise-cancelling Bluetooth headphones; these 4 star-rated Cowin E-7s are just $38 right now, or $32 off with promo code 42YFK63R.
They might not have the brand recognition of Sony or Bose, but these headphones pack in 30 hours of battery life, the ability to use them in wired mode if the battery dies, and yes, active noise cancellation that reviewers say works really well.
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!
Top Home Deals
Whether you have a home improvement project on the horizon, or just like collecting tools, Amazon’s one-day DEWALT deal is pretty spectacular.
$169 gets you a 20V drill/driver kit, plus a 20V impact driver that runs off the same battery. Buying them separately, these tools would set you back $225, so you’re saving over $50 by bundling. Just remember that it’s only available today, and it could sell out early.
At 3,000 watts, this Briggs & Stratton generator could probably power your entire house, or the most high-tech tailgate party on the planet, and it can be yours for $880 today, an all-time low by about $120, and only the second time it’s broken the $1,000 price barrier.
Despite its immense power, reviewers say it’s both quiet and fuel efficient; its 1.5 gallon tank will power it for 10 hours straight at 1/4 load. Just note that this is a Gold Box deal, so lock in your order before this deal runs out of gas.
Yi, manufacturer of your favorite affordable action cam, also makes a home IP security camera, and you can pick it up for just $29 today with promo code 4OQZ2K88, the best deal we’ve ever seen.
The Yi Home Camera includes all the basic features you’d expect, including two-way audio, automatic activity alerts to your phone, and remote monitoring. And unlike other companies that rely on cloud storage and monthly fees, the Yi stores your files on an onboard microSD card, no membership required.
With this set of five OXO Good Grips Pop Containers, the days of snacks going stale are no more. These hardly ever go on sale, and $42 is within a couple bucks of the best price Amazon’s ever listed. I have this set, and actually use them for pasta and grains, rather than snacks.
Rubbermaid’s microwave, freezer, and dishwasher safe Brilliance food storage containers are the perfect home for your leftovers, and even feature sealable vents for splatter-proof microwaving. At $11, the 6-piece (three containers, and three lids) starter set has never been cheaper.
If your mattress doesn’t leave you feeling as well-rested as you’d like, it’s a whole lot cheaper to upgrade it with a mattress pad than to buy a new one, especially today.
Amazon is offering highly-rated ExceptionalSheets two piece, extra thick pads for $104-$138 as part of a one-day Gold Box deal. ExceptionalSheets is the same company that makes the mattress pads for Marriott hotels, and this model uses the same foam as those pads, with a layer visco memory foam added.
The standard full, queen, and king pads come in at $112, $123, and $138 respectively. They promise to soften up old mattresses, are hypoallergenic, and use a state-of-the-art fiberfill to replicate duck down.
If you have any inkling that you might want a Costco membership, there’s never been a better time to join. For a limited time, Groupon’s offering Gold Star memberships for their standard price of $60, but throwing in a $20 Costco gift card, plus coupons for free paper towels, flavored water, and a pizza, and some other bonuses like savings on Costco travel vacations and an online order discount code. If you use them all, that package is worth over $200.
What’s that noise the car’s making? It’s all the crap rolling around in your trunk. This $22 pop-up organizer will keep everything in its place, and it even comes with a free bonus car cooler, as well as a reflective warning triangle for roadside emergencies.
Be honest with yourself; when’s the last time you vacuumed the inside of your car? With this convenient $27 car vacuum, you might actually get around to cleaning your cabin. Just plug it straight into your car’s 12V outlet, then start digging for old french fries under your seat.
PetSafe drinking fountains ensure your furry friends never go thirsty, and in fact, most animals actually drink more water when it’s flowing, rather than sitting stagnant in a bowl. So take your pick of over a half-dozen fountains in this Amazon sale; your pets will thank you.
There may be no better way to spend a Sunday than killing a bottle of wine while leisurely making a big-ass paella to share, but the experience isn’t complete without an honest-to-goodness paella pan. Luckily, Nordic Ware makes a heavy duty carbon steel model that’ll work on pretty much any cooking surface, and with a few exceptions, $29 is about as cheap as it gets.
The Pronto hooks up to any propane tank, and reaches temperatures of up to 700 degrees, resulting in crispy crust and melted cheese, all in just five minutes. The oven almost always sells for $300, and today’s $203 deal is one of the best Amazon’s ever offered.
If you don’t have a pizza peel, Pizzacraft sells an accessory kit that also includes a cleaning brush.
Bluesmart’s Black Edition carry-on is the smartest piece of luggage you’ve ever seen, and $400 is the best price Amazon’s ever listed. Shane wrote more about his experiences with the bag here, but that gets you a built-in USB battery, GPS tracking, a digital lock, and more.
You probably didn’t wake up today planning to buy a laminator. I doubt you have a stack of papers sitting on your desk waiting to be laminated. But even so, I’m here to tell you that today’s the day you should buy a laminator.
While supplies last, Amazon’s selling the AmazonBasics Thermal Laminator for $18, an all-time low. This thing is sized to laminate standard 8.5 x 11" pieces of paper (just like the ones that come out of your printer at home!), in addition to smaller things like letters and business cards, and it warms up in just four minutes. You might not use it today. You might not use it this year. But there will come a day that you suddenly need to make a piece of paper waterproof for some reason, and on that day, you’ll be glad you made this impulse purchase.
Our readers have bought thousands of entry-level Roomba 650s, but today we’ve spotted an all-time low price on the upgraded 690, which adds a few much-needed features.
As far as vacuuming performance goes, this should be essentially identical to the 650; the difference all comes down to connectivity. Built-in Wi-Fi allows you to schedule and start the Roomba from anywhere via a smartphone app, or even control it with your voice via Amazon Alexa or Google Home.
I know “smart” features on a lot of products are basically just an excuse to charge more, but as a Roomba owner, I think these make a ton of sense. I can tell you from experience that programming a Roomba without an app is something I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy, and the ability to start ir remotely means you can run the Roomba while you’re out of the house, and come back to clean floors.
If you haven’t deep-cleaned your carpet recently (or ever, not judging), get ready for an eye-opening experience when you see just how much crap a person can track into a home.
The Bissell ReadyClean is down to an all-time low $70 today on Amazon, so if you dare to see just how much dirt has been wedged in the fibers of your floor, this is a great deal.
Top Lifestyle Deals
Now is the time to get your summer wardrobe in order (before you sweat your way through the week. Right now, ModCloth is giving you an extra 40% off all sale styles, no code needed. Just add your favorite pieces to your cart to see the discount. There is so much to choose from, so get ready to take a little bit of time to look through.
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.
It shouldn’t be a surprise that Banana Republic, Old Navy, and GAP are in cahoots when it comes to sales; they are owned by the same company, after all. But with 40% off coming from all three retailers when you use the code HOT, maybe you get a whole new wardrobe by the end of summer.
There must be something in the air, because J.Crew Factory has had major discounts lately. Use the code EXTRA and take an extra 30% off all clearance items, which is insane seeing as practically everything is already marked down under $100. Maybe hold off on cleaning out your closet until after this sale is over.
In case you missed it during the Prime Day chaos, ExOfficio’s insanely popular sweat-wicking men’s underwear is still on sale for $12-$15, in multiple sizes and colors. It’s extremely rare for Amazon to have this many options in stock, let alone at a discount, so don’t miss your chance to stock up.
Amazon’s newest sample box includes eight or more luxury sun care samples for $20, plus a $20 credit on your next eligible sun care purchase. Assuming you use the credit, that’s basically like getting all of those travel-friendly sunscreens, SPF lip balms, skin creams, and serums for free.
$48 for a year’s-supply of razor blades is a great deal, especially from Dorco. $24 for the same pack (with code FSALE17A) is downright unbelievable.
That price includes a mishmash of products, but basically, it boils down to 28 cartridges, including a mix of three, four, and six-blade models. Obviously, it depends on how often you shave, but for many of you, that should last at least a year. It would probably last me like three.
While not quite as small as some of our favorite minimalist wallets, the new Swift Wallet is well-built and has a ton of features, and you can get it for about $70 by preordering.
First, let’s talk cards. The Swift Wallet features four RFID-protected card slots (each of which can hold about three cards comfortably, an exterior coin/card pocket that’s purposely not RFID-protected for contactless payment cards, and a few small interior pockets for business cards.
The Swift’s claim to fame though is its unique cash slot. Your bills sit behind the card holders on either side of the wallet’s interior, meaning you can swipe a thumb up the middle of the wallet to slide bills out with ease.
I know Kickstarter projects can occasionally go pear-shaped, but the team behind Swift has successfully delivered on three previous wallet Kickstarters, and they sent me a demo unit to check out as well, so I don’t think you have much to worry about here.
This week’s Philips Norelco OneBlade Pro deals are still alive, but if the improved battery and adjustable comb don’t seem worth the extra money to you, the top-selling original OneBlade also has a pretty great deal going right now.
Clip the $10 coupon on the page to get the OneBlade plus two extra replacement blades (three blades total) for $50. Individual replacement blades usually sell for $15, and two-packs go for $25, so you’re saving at least $10 here, and you’ll have enough blades to last an entire year.
As I’ve said before, every male on our staff uses this thing, and we’re all floored by how good it is. Shane wrote more about it here, but the gist is that you can use it as a shaver or a beard trimmer, with or without shaving cream, and in or out of the shower.
Zappos is basically a one-stop shoe destination already, but right now, they’re having an actual sale, something they haven’t done in years. Grab discounted shoes from Cole Haan, Brooks, Nike, Stuart Weitzman, Frye, and more for men and women. And, if you’re part of their rewards program, get 3x the points on the over 40,000 items on sale.
If you’ve never checked out Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale, what are you even doing on Kinja Deals? The retailer puts thousands of fall and winter styles, plus Nordstrom Beauty Exclusives, on sale way before they go into the stores. Once the sale is over, you’ll only be able to get them for full price, so you’d better get on it. The sale lasts until August 6th.
Top Media Deals
If you have a 4K TV and a 4K Blu-ray player (like an Xbox One S, for example), you can demo the best image quality available with these museum-quality IMAX Blu-rays, all of which are on sale today. The space one is even narrated by Patrick Stewart!
Top Gaming Deals
Here’s a solid wubba lubba dub-deal on the Rick and Morty board game. $25 is the lowest price Amazon’s ever offered, so clear out some space in your game cabinet.
The newest Humble Bundle doesn’t have any video games in it; but it does have books that’ll teach you how to make them. Specifically, 19 books focused on Unity and Unreal Engine development. As usual, they’re split among three different price tiers, and you can get them all for as little as $15.
PS4 Pro deals have been few and far between, but right now, you can pick up a 1TB PS4 Pro for $360 with promo code PCOLLEGE10.
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 $21 gaming mouse. Just note that this deal is only for Prime members, and you won’t see the discount until checkout.
Splatoon 2 is out for the Nintendo Switch, and it’s even better than the original. If you haven’t picked up a copy yet, Prime members can still save 20% on a physical copy, which brings it down to $48 (discount shown at checkout). If you’ve finished Breath of the Wild and are getting bored of Mario Kart, this is the next Switch game you should buy.
I guess we don’t know for sure that the new 2DS XL will be supply constrained and basically impossible to find for the better part of its lifespan, but Nintendo’s given us no reason to think otherwise over the last few years. So if you think you want one, I’d buy it right now before Amazon inevitably sells out.
