Top Deals

It seems like everyone has a podcast these days, and you can get in on the fun, or just enjoy clearer Skype calls, with this popular Blue Snowball iCE mic. $44's not a huge discount from its usual $50, but sales on this mic are extremely rare, its reviews are great, and it also holds the title of Amazon’s top-selling microphone.

Good running shoes for an affordable price are hard to find, but with Amazon’s Gold Box deal on Asics fuzeX Running Shoes, you’re pretty much set. Grab a pair for only $55 for both men and women, but you’d better hit the ground running because this deal is only going to last for today.


Note: Only select colors are marked down to $55, but others are still on sale for $80.

Finally, someone made the Glow Bowl, but for everywhere else in your home. This motion-sensing light strip is billed as an under-bed night light, but you could just as easily attach it under your bathroom counter, along a railing, beneath your baby’s crib, or anywhere else you might need to venture in the middle of the night. For a limited time, you can get one for just $20 with code SJMFQK08.

Your car’s paint probably deserves some TLC after being abused by the sun all summer, and Meguiar’s Ultimate Car Care Kit includes everything you need to make it look brand new. You get soap, polish, wax, protectant, towels, foam pads, and more, and Amazon’s taking $10 off its usual price today when you clip the on-screen coupon.

Today only, you can find a collection of popular Irwin tools on sale in Amazon’s Gold Box. Options range from a $7 C-clamp vise to its Master Extraction Set for about $40 less than usual. Just note that like all Gold Box deals, these prices are only available today, or until sold out.

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 chest strap heart rate monitor would have set you back $170, but now, you can get both for just $40 with promo code FIRST10K.

The slightly smaller sibling of your favorite headphones is on sale for $79 with a bonus lapel mic today from BuyDig, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen. Just be sure to use promo code PRO4X10 at checkout. That’s $11 less than Amazon, with no mic.

Aukey 20W Solar Charger, $38 with code AU2SOLAR

Whether you enjoy camping, worry about power outages, or just like the idea of being off the grid, this $38 Aukey solar charger can juice up two phones at the same time. This is one of the best wattage-to-dollar deals on these things we’ve ever seen, so if you spend a lot of time outdoors, it might be worth a look.

Mpow Armor Bluetooth Speaker, $20 with code LE84DASX | Mpow Buckler Bluetooth Speaker, $13 with code 6HEIRJNV

Whether you’re heading to the beach or catching up on your podcast backlog in the shower, these splash-resistant Bluetooth speakers are both incredibly affordable today.

Bonus: It’s not water resistant, but you can also get a refurbished Mini Jambox from Groupon today for $25 with promo code SAVEMORE. That’s far and away the best price we’ve ever seen.

You love Lodge’s cast iron skillets, but have you tried their dutch oven? It’s only $29 on Amazon today, within a couple bucks of an all-time low. The best part though? The lid doubles as a skillet, meaning you’re getting two great pieces of cookware for the price of one.

AXGIO QC 3.0 Car Charger, $12 with code 2O6QGLMB

This car charger goes all the way with two Quick Charge 3.0 ports—most car chargers only include one—and at $12 with code 2O6QGLMB, it’s one of the cheapest we’ve ever seen. If you’ve got a compatible phone, this is a great way to maximize the power you get out of your commute.

If you don’t immediately think jeans when you think Levi’s, I think it’s time to come out of that 100 year old rock you’ve been living under. And, with 30% off your entire purchase, plus free shipping, when you use the code FAM30, you’ll be able to come out of that rock wearing really great pants.

SSDs are obviously great upgrades for PCs with spinning hard drives, but it’s also really easy and affordable to turn one into a high performance external drive. Crucial’s MX300 525GB SSD is marked down to $120 today, an all-time low.

Aukey Laptop Cooling Pad, $18 with code COOLERA2

If your laptop runs a little hotter than you’d like, this USB-powered, three-fan cooling pad can help improve airflow, and also includes a couple of USB ports for extra connectivity.

Stainless Steel Rolling Pin, $10 with code TVWY5PWL

I’m not sure if a minimal, stainless steel cylinder is the most practical design for a rolling pin, but I think it’s definitely the prettiest.

If you have any kids on your holiday shopping list (or if you just like playing with Play-Doh, no judgement), Amazon’s running a big sale today on Play-Doh, including licensed sets from My Little Pony, Star Wars, and more. I imagine the top seller will be the 24 color pack for $15, but head over here to see all of the options.

Nyko’s modular charging station is one of the slickest ways to keep your DualShocks charged, and you can snag one for just $12 on Amazon today. Just note that it’ll only work with the original PS4, not the Slim or the Pro.

The new $50 Echo Dot is most useful for people who own compatible smart home gadgets, so to that end, Amazon’s offering $10-$50 off three select bundles that include a Dot and a compatible gadget. You can choose any or all of Philips Hue White bulbs, TP-Link Smart Plugs, and ecobee3 thermostats, all of which have been popular with our readers in the past.

Shadow of Mordor was one of the best games of 2014, and if you still haven’t picked it up, the Game of the Year Edition is on sale for an all-time low $15 today on PS4 and Xbox One. That’s actually less than the current price for the standard edition, and you get all of the DLC included for free.

Update: Also down to $7 on Steam.

The Pebble Time is, in many ways, the best smart watch on the market, and you can try one out for just $70 today. That’s the best price we’ve seen on a non-refurb by $20!

Amazon’s back at it again with the sample box deals. This time around, $10 gets you 8+ protein products, plus a $10 credit on your next protein purchase from Amazon. If you were going to buy any of these products anyway, then this is a no-brainer.

Odds are, you’ve got a $20 Crock-Pot sitting in a cabinet, gathering dust. But with just a few added features, the humble slow cooker can be one of your favorite kitchen tools.


This programmable 6 qt. Crock-Pot is marked down to $38, or $12 less than usual. Unlike most entry level slow cookers, you can set this model to cook for a certain amount of time, after which it’ll switch to warm mode; perfect for preparing six hour recipes during nine hour workdays. It also includes a lockable lid for easy transport.

Between shedding fur on your seats and a seemingly biological need to jump into the front seat while you’re passing an 18-wheeler on the freeway, it’s no secret that a lot of dogs don’t do particularly well in the car. Personally, I put my dog in a collapsible fabric kennel in the backseat, but if you want your pooch to have a little more freedom, this backseat dog hammock from AmazonBasics looks like a perfect solution.


The cover hooks into the headrests on both the front and back seats, creating a kind of loosely enclosed room that will keep your dog safely in the backseat, and her fur a layer removed from your upholstery. We’ve posted deals on a few of these before, but AmazonBasics’ is the cheapest we’ve ever seen.

Homga Broom Mop Holder, $14 with code BVUJIC5J

You probably didn’t wake up today hoping to find a great deal on a broom rack, and yet here we are. In addition to clamps for holding brooms and mops, this also includes some movable hooks to hang umbrellas, keys, and other smaller items as well.

All Clad Tri-Ply Skillets: 12" with lid, $90 | 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 couple different options to choose from today. Most buyers will want to opt for the 12" skillet with lid for $90, but if you’re only cooking for one or two, you might be able to get away with the 10" model for $75.

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.
