Top Deals

Amazon’s Fire TV Stick is a perfectly capable little streaming device, and if you own any TVs without access to smart apps, you can pick one up for $35, today only. Granted, $5 isn’t a huge discount, but it is the first deal we’ve seen in several months.

For $10 more, you can get it bundled with a voice remote, which allows you to search for movies, pull up sports scores, and more via Amazon’s Alexa virtual assistant.


If you want a Big Green Egg charcoal grill, but don’t want to cash in your 401(k) to buy one, this Char-Griller alternative is down to an all-time low $288 today, and a great investment for meat lovers everywhere.

The Char-Griller Akorn Kamado Kooker features a 306 square inch cast iron cooking surface (which is most similar to the $829 large Big Green Egg), and traps heat inside a heavily-insulated stainless steel body. Our deal researcher, Corey, owns a BGE, and I asked him about it on Slack:

And I use my BGE for about 70% of meat meals.

Probably 90% during the warm months.

Best Father’s Day gift I’ll ever get.

Lana jokes that she’s the one who benefits most because I cook on it all the time.

Worth the price just for its ability to cook pizza, IMO.

But pork chops, lions, tenderloin are beyond incredible on it.

Obviously, this isn’t the “real thing,” but the consensus among Amazon reviewers is that it’s at least nearly as good, which sounds like a decent compromise considering it’s only about 1/3 of the price, and comes with a stable cart and folding shelves, both of which you’d need to buy separately with the Egg.


All Clad Tri-Ply Skillets: 12" with lid, $90 | 12" with no lid, $82 | 10" with lid: $75

All-Clad skillets are among the most popular pieces of cookware we’ve ever posted, and Amazon’s marked the 10 and 12" tri-ply down to their lowest prices ever.

These skillets feature a durable stainless steel cooking surface, an even and rapid-heating aluminum core, and a beautiful stainless exterior, all sandwiched together to create the ultimate pan. And, like all All-Clad items, it comes with a lifetime warranty, though you probably won’t need it so long as you treat it well.

You’ve actually got a few different options to choose from today. Most buyers will want to opt for the 12" skillet with lid for $90, but if you don’t think you need a lid, you can get the skillet by itself for $82. And if you’re only cooking for one or two, you might be able to get away with the 10" model (with a lid) for $75.


If you live in an apartment building, but still want to enjoy grilling meats and veggies out on your patio, this George Foreman electric grill can get the job done for $85 (after a 15% discount is automatically applied at checkout), no flames required.

The grill’s 240 square inch grilling surface is large enough to cook for an entire family, and if the weather’s not cooperating, you can even remove the base and set it up indoors on your counter. Obviously, an electric grill will never replicated the smokey flavors of charcoal, but most of the fun of grilling is cooking meat outdoors with a beer in your hand, and this allows apartment dwellers to enjoy the same experience.


Mother’s Day is on the horizon, and no mom has ever complained about getting diamond jewelry as a gift. Amazon’s Gold Box is chock full of different earrings, necklaces, and more today, and with prices starting under $30, you can find something to fit any budget. Like all Gold Box deals though, these prices are only available today, or until sold out.


With no gas tanks to fill or extension cords to wrangle, battery-operated yard tools are a clear winner for most home owners, and Home Depot is discounting a handful of Ryobi combo kits, today only.

Inside, you’ll find blowers, edgers trimmers, and mowers combined into a few different packages, along with at least one interchangeable battery pack to power them. Prices start at just $80, but these deals are only available today, or until sold out.


If you make a habit of shopping at Banana Republic, Gap, Old Navy, or Athleta, you can pick up a $100 e-gift card today on eBay for just $85. Since it’s just a gift card, your savings will stack with any other deals or promotions the retailers offer as well.

Note: Yes, I know it’s labeled as a Banana Republic gift card, but it’s valid at all of the stores listed above.


If you’ve ever thought about pulling out your blender to make a smoothie, sauce, or dip, and then held off because you didn’t want to clean 3,000 different parts, this deal is for you. The 4.5 star-rated Cuisinart Smart Stick Hand Blender is down to $29 today on Amazon, the best price they’ve listed all year.

The big advantage here is that unlike a traditional blender, you can dip the Smart Stick into whatever container you were already using to hold your ingredients; be it a single-serve cup or a huge mixing bowl. That saves you time, and means fewer dishes to clean up once you’re done. Reviewers also say it chops through everything from fruit to ice cubes with no trouble, so it really can be a full blender replacement for most use cases.

As always, we don’t know how long this deal will be available, so be sure to grab one before the price shoots back up.


Waterpik Aquarius Water Flosser, $60 after $10 coupon. Discount shown at checkout.

Waterpik is an easier (and they would argue more effective) way to “floss” between your teeth, and Amazon is once again taking $10 off the Aquarius model, in case you missed out last month. Discount shown at checkout.


Today only, Amazon’s offering big discounts on highly rated Biofreeze pain relief products, starting at $19.

Biofreeze can be applied directly to the skin to relieve muscle pain, arthritis, and other forms of soreness. I can’t say I’ve ever used it, but it has great reviews from customers, so if you’ve been feeling achy, it may be worth a shot.

There are three different products available in today’s Gold Box. The most expensive 32 ounce gel bottle has a lot of bad reviews saying it wasn’t the right formula, so I would probably avoid it. However, the 100 count gel packets and the 16 ounce spray bottle both have great reviews, and an additional 15% coupon you can clip if you purchase them through Amazon Subscribe & Save (prices below reflect the 15% savings).


Anker Aluminum Bluetooth Speaker, $16 with code WOWDEALA

Anker makes several of your favorite Bluetooth speakers, and while this aluminum model wasn’t one of the Co-Op nominees, it still has great reviews, and you can save a whopping $20 on its $36 price tag today with promo code WOWDEALA. That’s easily the best deal we’ve ever seen on this model.


Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but we’ve spotted a pair of pretty unique USB battery pack deals today.

First up, the ZeroLemon SolarJuice features a built-in solar panel to recharge itself on the go. Obviously, it won’t recharge a 20,000mAh battery very quickly, but it can add a little bit of extra juice during a camping trip or day at the beach. Plus, $20 is a great price for any 20,000mAh battery, so you aren’t even really paying any extra for the solar panel.

Next up, this 10,400mAh pack from Aukey features Quick Charge 2.0 for just $15. That’s one of the best deals we’ve ever seen on a Quick Charge-compatible battery pack, and a great deal as long as your phone supports it.


MIU Color 300ml Oil Diffuser, $24 with code MIUCOLOR

Not only do this cheap, color-changing oil diffuser make a room smell nice, it actually humidify it too. Just don’t forget to pick up some essential oils to go with it.


Holiday Laser Light, $20 with code LNUH9UAX

You don’t need it for another 7 months or so, but $20 is as good a price as you’ll find on a landscape laser light projector, if you want to get an early jump on your holiday decorating.

If you aren’t familiar, these genius little gadgets use lasers to project red and green lights onto the front of your house, giving the appearance of holiday spirit without the hassle of actually hanging up outdoor lights. Last year was the first time they were widely available, but they were almost impossible to find, and consistently cost $40-$50. So yes, this deal is about half a year ahead of schedule, but it never hurts to plan ahead.


It doesn’t come in the original box, but $35 is the best price we’ve seen on an Xbox One gamepad, if you’re in the market. Remember, these will also work with your PC.


The Ninja Professional BL610 is slightly less powerful (1000 watts vs. 1100) than the BL660—your newly-minted favorite affordable blender—and it doesn’t include the single-serve smoothie cups, but it’s still an absolute steal at $75, an all-time low.


Did you know your KitchenAid can double as a juicer? The necessary attachment is marked down to $88 right now on eBay, which is about $40 less than you’ll find it elsewhere.


Best Buy’s running a pretty impressive video game sale today, with an extra 20% off for Gamers Club Unlocked members. Highlights include Fallout 4 for $30, GTA V for $35, and several discounted amiibo. Be sure to head over to Best Buy’s site though to see the full list.


Mpow Seashell Bluetooth Headphones, $26 with code XQONBSZM

Mpow brought affordable Bluetooth headphones to the mainstream, and today, they’ll sell you a pair with active noise cancellation and IPX4 waterproofing for $26. Awesome haircut not included.


Rocket League, $10 with code KINJA20

Rocket League just came out with a new basketball mode, so if you haven’t tried it yet, there’s never been a better time to pick up a copy. Green Man Gaming has the PC version marked down to $12 right now, and promo code KINJA20 will knock that down to $10, the best price we’ve ever seen.


Let’s be honest here, thin fabric koozies are mostly useful for decoration; they don’t really keep a can cold for very long. This imposing metal Thermos contraption though? It’s the real deal.

Thermos’s stainless steel can insulator uses vacuum insulation and thick walls to actually provide a barrier between your beverage and the outside world. They go so far as to claim that it will keep a can cold for up to 3 hours, and even if that’s a little bit of marketing hyperbole, what could possibly be in that can that takes more than an hour to drink?

Over 1,200 Amazon reviewers have given the Thermos a 4.6 star review average, and you can get one (or more!) for just $8 right now. Cheers!


If your Wi-Fi signal isn’t quite strong enough in certain corners of your home, this discounted wireless Powerline kit can fill in the gaps.

The kit comes with two pieces, an adapter and an access point. All you have to do is connect the adapter to your router with an ethernet cable, and plug it into an AC outlet on your wall. Then, plug in the wireless access point into another outlet, and all of the 1s and 0s will flow between them via your home’s existing electrical wiring, essentially turning the access point into an extra wireless router.

The kit almost always sells for $100 on Amazon, and today’s $80 deal matches an all-time low. If it helps eliminate your wireless dead zones, that’ll be money well spent.


While not without its flaws, Garmin’s Vivofit fitness tracker is unique in offering a truly waterproof design, the ability to pair with a heart rate monitor, and most notably, over a year of battery life via a standard watch battery. When it launched a couple years ago, the tracker and an optional heart rate monitor would have set you back $170, but now, you can get both for just $50.


128GB in a flash drive the size of your fingernail. What a world. Other than a very brief $25 deal, this is the best price we’ve ever seen on this model.


Inateck 4-Port USB Aluminum Hub, $9 with code KZDQGSYQ

If your ultraportable laptop doesn’t have quite enough USB ports, this travel-friendly hub will add three extras for just $9. Obviously, it’ll work with essentially any laptop, but its brushed aluminum design will look right at home next to a Mac.


If you’re sick of renting carpet washers every time you spot a new stain, you can buy your own for just $134. The Hoover Power Scrub Deluxe has a squeaky-clean 4.4 star review average from over 4,000 customers, and while today’s price isn’t an all-time low, it’s on the low end of its usual range.


Packing cubes can make organizing clothes and toiletries for your next trip a little less hellish, and this highly-rated set of four from AmazonBasics is only $20 today. That’s $5 less than usual, and an all-time low. I actually just bought a set of these, and I absolutely love them.


In case you missed out on last week’s similar deal, here’s a chance to upgrade your existing power outlets with built-in USB charging ports for $18 each. These receptacles have proven very popular with readers in the past, even at higher prices, so be sure to secure a few before Amazon sells out.


Anker’s kevlar-wrapped PowerLine Lightning cables are some of the most popular we’ve ever posted, and the 10' model is marked down to $11 today on Amazon, an all-time low.

Obviously, this isn’t a cable you’ll want to travel everywhere with, but if you want to be able to charge your phone or tablet while sitting on the couch, or if your nightstand is are away from the nearest outlet, an extra-long cable like this should get the job done.
