Here are all the deals you need to kick off your weekend. Enjoy!
If you own an Apple device, this is basically free money. Of course you can use it on games, apps, movies, music, and TV shows, but here's another idea you might not have thought about: iCloud storage space. I've been using the new iCloud Photo Library beta, and it's basically the photo service I've always wanted. My library clocked in around 150GB, and 200GB of space is $4/month, so any de facto discount I can get on the monthly renewal is nice. [15% off iTunes Credit, with promo code ITUNES15]
If you aren't satisfied with your iPhone 6's battery life, this heavily-discounted battery case can more than double its lifespan.
- Anker iPhone 6 Battery Case ($36) | Amazon | Promo code 8VJYTYQ6
If you prefer to charge up the old fashioned way, here are some discounted Lightning cables too.
- Anker 1' Lightning Cable ($8) | Amazon | Promo code 5HSY2QY5
- Anker 3' Lightning Cable ($9) | Amazon
- Anker 6' Lightning Cable ($13) | Amazon
If you spend a lot of time in the car:
- Anker 24W Dual-Port Car Charger + 3' Lightning Cable ($14) | Amazon | Promo code H4QBSNCF
We posted a deal on the ever-popular Roku 3 a few days ago, but today it got even cheaper. Just $75 gets you one of the best streaming boxes on the market today, which is within a few cents of an all-time low.
Admittedly, Roku has a lot of competition from the likes of Apple, Google, and Amazon, but nobody can touch Roku's lineup of channels and apps, and there's something to be said for a streaming box that doesn't prioritize its own company's walled garden. Oh, and building a headphone jack into the remote was one of the great innovations of the 21st century. [Roku 3 Streaming Media Player, $75]
Your stick vacuum won't do you any good on shelves, in small closets, or in your car, but a small hand vacuum can make up the difference, and these two discounted options from Black & Decker fit the bill perfectly.
Your vacuum might have a hose built-in for elevated surfaces, but these hand vacs are completely cordless, and thus a lot less cumbersome to take around the house. Plus, if you don't have a garage, something this size is really your only option for vacuuming the car.
Whether you prefer on-ears or earbuds, we've found a couple of good deals for you today. The MEElectronics S6P earbuds are IPX5 sweat and water-resistant, and they even come with a bonus smartphone armband for working out. They normally sell for about $10 more.
The Sennheiser HD 518s are praised for their comfort and sound quality, racking up a 4.5 star review average on Amazon. They've also never been cheaper.
I prefer the naturally flavored varieties because you know... if you're using protein powder you're probably trying to get healthier, but no need to go that route if you're unafraid of artificials.
Check out our post on Vega Protein if you're looking for something more like a meal replacement, or if you're vegan.
Everyone could use a little more storage space, and $50 is just about the best price you'll see on a 1TB external drive these days. [Toshiba Canvio Connect 1TB External USB 3.0 Hard Drive, $50]
Rather than trying to sell you on this forehead thermometer, I'll just share what our deal researcher Corey said in an email this morning.
I own and use the forehead thermometer - we settled on it after trying and killing / tossing 3 other instant-read thermos for the kids. This Braun unit was the ONLY consistent one in the bunch. [Corey Stamp of Approval]
- Braun Forehead Thermometer ($24) | Amazon
There are plenty of small household safes on the market to keep your valuables safe, but what if you lose the key? Or forget the combination? With this biometric safe from BARSKA, you won't have to worry.
The safe can register up to 30 unique fingerprints, so you can add your entire family, as well as a few trusted confidants. It also comes with a pair of emergency backup keys as a last resort. Today's $140 price tag is a new low on Amazon, where it has a solid 4.3 star review average. [BARSKA Biometric Safe, $140]
If your home wireless network has a few dead spots, your cheapest option to extend your connectivity may be a powerline adapter. One half of the kit plugs into the wall and your router, and the other unit provides you with a live ethernet port anywhere in your house. In between, all the 1's and 0's are being carried through your home's electrical wiring, which is basically black magic. These are also incredibly useful for Blu-ray players and older electronics that don't have Wi-Fi.
Today on Newegg, you can grab this kit for $15 off with a promo code. [ Netgear AV500 1-Port Essentials Edition Powerline Kit, $30 with code EMCAPKP44]
This very cheap stainless steel french press will make better coffee than your cheap drip or lazy Keurig, and keep it warm longer too. Or maybe you already have a great pourover style automatic dripper or pourover setup or Aeropress and just want to add a French Press to your arsenal. Either way, this is in impulse buy range. You can use it to make tea too. [Francois et Mimi Stainless Steel French Press, $25]
You want a drone. Everyone wants a drone. But before you go out and blow $1,000 on a DJI Phantom, you'll want to practice on something a little more...disposable. This cheap quadcopter from UDI is Amazon's #1 seller in hobby RC helicopters, and even includes a low-res camera for capturing your pets' confused reactions. Today's $54 price tag is an all-time low. [UDI U818A 2.4GHz 4 CH 6 Axis Gyro RC Quadcopter with Camera, $54]
If you have a BJ's Wholesale in your town, but you've never bothered to join, this might change your mind. You give Groupon $5, and they'll give you a $10 gift card to the store, plus a 60 day membership. Even if you don't renew, that's free money. Note: This is for new members only. [BJ's 60 Day Membership and $10 Gift Card, $5]
