Top Deals

There are quite a few permutations of the Lord of the Rings films out there on Blu-ray, but the extended editions are the ones you want, and the extended trilogy pack has never been cheaper. In fact, it almost never sells for under $50.

The Hobbit Trilogy is also on sale for an all-time low $39, if you’re into that.


Fire HD 6 16GB, $50 with code FIREPROMO

Update: Sold out. Hope you got one!

Just before Thanksgiving, Amazon ran a promotion that discounted the 8GB Fire HD 6 to $50, which was a really good deal! Today though, that same $50 gets you the 16GB version with promo code FIREPROMO, while supplies last.

This tablet is a solid choice at its usual $90, but this discount actually brings the it in line with the entry-level Fire Tablet, which has a worse (albeit slightly larger) screen, a slower processor, half the storage, and less battery life. I could think of worse stocking stuffers.


Simplehuman takes mundane household objects like trash cans, shower caddies, toilet brushes, and paper towel holders, and turns them into functional works of art.

Art comes at a price though, and simplehuman will never be mistaken for a value brand. That said, if you’ve had your eye on any of the company’s wares, a handful of bathroom-focused products are on sale today. It’s nowhere near as many as we saw on Black Friday, but go ahead, get yourself a shower caddy or a small trash can if you missed out.


If your Eneloop AA collection isn’t quite as big as it could be, you can supplement it with an 8-pack of AmazonBasics AAs for $17 today.

That’s an all-time low price, and $3 less than the equivalent Eneloop pack, and if you believe some reviewers, these may actually be rebranded Eneloops themselves. We can’t verify that claim (though like Eneloops, they were produced in Japan and pre-charged with solar energy, which seems really specific to be a coincidence), but whatever their origin, they have great reviews, and a stellar price tag.


Today on Amazon, $18 gets you a basketball all your own, just like Russell Westbrook. Plus, save big on three different hoops, ranging from a mini hoop that hangs on your door to a complete in-ground system.


While it seem crazy to think about buying any other drone besides a DJI, this $30 Dromida Ominus may be the key to a drone-filled Christmas. This beginner model helps two-fold: you don’t need to shell out a crazy amount of money on something that may break and you can get a feel for piloting before even thinking about shelling out that money.

Choose from four different colors, and give someone (or yourself) a great Christmas present.


littleBits kits are a great way to learn about electronics while building your own gadgets, musical instruments, or smart home accessories, and Amazon is offering all-time low prices on several starter packs, today only.

It goes without saying that any of these would make a terrific gift for any kids (or curious adults) on your shopping list. There are several sets available, so go check out the full collection before they start selling out. Personally, I’m pretty enamored with the cloudBit kit, which lets you control your creations over the internet through IFTTT. As one example, you could feed your fish with a text message. Kids have it all these days.


You have no shortage of options when it comes to Bluetooth speakers, but the Jawbone Jambox line started the entire trend, and its highly-rated mini model is just $35 on eBay today, easily the best price we’ve ever seen.


If you have any DIY or home improvement projects on the horizon, or just haven’t bought a Christmas tree yet, this discounted Lowe’s gift card is a no-brainer. I suggest spending the $10 you saved on booze to drink while you operate power tools.


Anker SoundBuds NB10, $32 with code ANKUSNB1

If none of the day’s other wireless headphone deals did the trick for you, how about the newest entry in Anker’s popular SoundBuds line for an all-time low $32?

The highlight feature here is the NB10's wraparound design; once these things are in your ears, they’re not going anywhere until you take them out. They’re also IPX5 water-resistant (an improvement from the original’s IPX4 rating), pack in 12mm drivers, and include Anker’s hassle-free 18 month warranty.

For a limited time, promo code ANKUSNB1 will take $8 off your pair, the best price we’ve ever seen by $4. Needless to say, these would also make great gifts.


Samsung’s Level On wireless headphones are some of the best-looking on-ears around, and today only, if you buy a pair for $130 from Samsung, they’ll send you a second for free. That price is only $10 more than what Amazon’s currently charging per pair, so this really is a pretty insane deal. We don’t expect it to last.


If you’re reading this, you’ve probably already gotten yourself a pair or six of Bluetooth earbuds, but they also make great gifts, and Amazon’s Gold Box is full of discounted options from SoundPEATS.

Every model here costs $20 or less, with one notable exception: These truly wireless earbuds for $40. They look nearly identical to the AXGIO earbuds that I tried out a few months ago, but with updated Bluetooth tech (4.2 vs. 4.1) and a $10 lower price tag. They’re not as sleek as some other truly wireless headphones on the market like the Bragi Dash, but you can’t beat that price.

Update: The true wireless earbuds are sold out, but the sub-$20 options are still available.

Just remember that like all Gold Box deals, these prices are only available today, or until sold out.


Update: Sold out

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 $70 today, matching the pricing we saw on Black Friday. If you have a friend or family member that’s plagued by terrible Wi-Fi, this will be their favorite gift of the year.


Tomoko Mechanical Keyboard, $28 with code W43ZYTEY

You’ve probably heard a lot of fuss about mechanical keyboards lately, and if not, you’ve at least heard the clicking. If you’re curious to try one yourself without dropping a bunch of money, here’s an entry level model for $28, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on any mechanical keyboard.

The keys don’t use name brand Cherry MX switches, but the switches it does include should closely mimic Cherry MX blues, which are tactile, loud, and great for typists.


2x iClever BoostCube Dual USB Chargers (White), $10. Add two to cart and use code USBBOOST.

iClever’s BoostCube line is The Wirecutter’s pick for best travel-friendly USB charger, and for a limited time, you can get two for the price of one. That’s one for you, and one for a lucky friend’s stocking. Just add two of the white models to your cart, and use code USBBOOST at checkout to get one for free.


Fulfill your own tea wishes, or just get the perfect gift for the person who prefers their tea a little more involved, with Amazon’s tea sale. Grab everything you need for a great tea experience, from premium sets of loose leaf tea to a starter kit complete with both a brewing cup and tea. This is a one-day sale though, so if you’re in need of a good cuppa, you’d better hurry.


Hue is probably the most ubiquitous of tight brands, and it’s no surprise it was voted as your favorite. So, when Amazon knocks down the already-affordable prices even further, it’s about time to stock up. Grab a new pair of tights for the colder months or replace those old leggings you’ve been trying to throw away for months.


20% off Greenies Dental Treats. Discount Shown at Checkout.

My dog burped in my face the other day, and in turn, I nearly threw up on his, so I’ll probably be buying some of these Greenies dental treats at 20% off. And while at-home oral care won’t totally replace professional veterinary dental work, it can at least mean fewer expensive appointments. Just note that you won’t see the discount until checkout.


Refurb Dyson V6 Absolute, $300 | Photo via Gizmodo AU

The Dyson V6 Absolute (as in, absolutely cord-free) is ideal for cleaning rugs, hardwood floors, cars, ceilings, shelves...pretty much anything really, and you can get a refurb for $300 on Amazon today, or over $100 less than buying it new. My boss was given one as a warranty replacement when his Dyson DC56 died, and he seems to love it.

And in case you missed it yesterday, the V6 Baby + Child handheld model is also down to $169 brand new.


If you have any old speaker systems lying around your house, you can bring them into this decade with Logitech’s Bluetooth receiver, now down to an all-time low $20. Much like the Chromecast Audio, this little dongle plugs into a speaker system via a 3.5mm cable, and lets you stream to it wirelessly from your phone.


This $204 Char-Broil electric smoker makes cooking jerky, brisket, or (insert meat of your choice) as easy as dropping in some wood chips and hitting a few buttons. With precise temperature control and a large smoke box, you’ll have complete command over the finished product. Today’s price is an all-time low, which means you’ll have more money leftover to buy meat. Lots and lots of meat.


Amazon’s Prime Pantry service has kicked off the month of December with a pair of special promotions, including a $10 discount exclusive to Kinja Deals readers!

First off, promo code PANTRY60KINJ will take $10 off any $60 Pantry order. It doesn’t matter what you buy, and it even works if you’ve used Pantry in the past. Easy peasy.

If the $6-per-box Prime Pantry delivery fee is scaring you off, it’s easy to avoid by including any five items from this page in your box. There are hundreds of eligible products from across every major category (including your favorite toilet paper), so you should have no trouble finding five that you were going to buy anyway. If you meet this requirement, you’ll see the $6 shipping fee waived at checkout.

In case $16 in savings wasn’t enough, if you have any Prime Pantry delivery credits in your account from choosing no-rush shipping on old Prime orders, that will still apply even if you got the free shipping promotion, giving you an extra $6 off.

So if you play your cards right here, you’ll pay far less for non-refrigerated food, laundry detergent, bathroom essentials, skin care, and home goods than you would at your local supermarket, and you won’t even have to leave the house to get it. That’s what they call a no-brainer.


ExOfficio’s Give-N-Go boxer briefs were a finalist in our recent best men’s underwear Co-Op, and our readers have gone on to purchase over 20,000 pairs since. Right now, Amazon is having an insane BOGO 50% off sale on select ExOfficio underwear, including the Give-N-Go boxer brief. So stock your underwear drawer with a bestseller.


Update: Now up to $47, which is still a really good price for this pack.

Whether you’re starting or expanding your collection, Amazon’s running a great deal today on your favorite rechargeable batteries.

$45 today gets you an Eneloop Super Power Pack, complete with 12 AAs, four AAAs, two C and D spacers, and a charger. That’s about $10 less than usual, and within a dollar of the best price Amazon’s ever offered.


If you missed out on the dozens of discounts Anker was running over Deals Week, or just need to cross a few more people off your shopping list to call it a year, the creator of nearly all of your favorite tech accessories is giving you one last chance to close out the week.

There are too many deals to list, here, but head over this post to find all of the prices and promo codes.


While supplies last (which, if history is any indication, won’t be long), you can get a 17 cup and 2.5 cup RubberMaid FreshWorks container for just $14. These went down to an all-time low $10 about a month ago, but sold out ridiculously fast. So if you’re still thinking about grabbing a set, now’s the time.


Klipsch ProMedia 2.1, $120 with code PROMEDIA

Klipsch’s ProMedia 2.1 speaker system is the only two-time winner in Kinja Co-Op history, and BuyDig’s taking $40 off the set today with promo code PROMEDIA. If you’re still using, say, your laptop’s built-in speakers, I can’t express how huge this upgrade will be.

Note: This discount was $50 earlier, but now it’s $40. It’s a great deal either way though.


Holiday photos are on the horizon, and if you want to look your best, Crest 3D Whitestrips are a great place to start. For a limited time, you can get 14 strips for $21, or 20 plus two express 1-hour treatments for $38. Just be sure to clip the $5 coupon on either page before you check out.


The Nomatic BASICS wallet is one of our readers’ four favorite front pocket wallets, and you can try one out for just $10 for the holidays, down from its usual $20, and actually $4 less than it was on Black Friday. You even get to pick from four different colors.


A lot of people are reflexively appalled by the idea of a bidet, which makes no sense, because they’re amazing. Today on Amazon, you can score a Greenco Bidet attachment that will work with just about any toilet for just $21. That’s nothing for a product you’ll use just about every day. This deal could sell out any time though, so purchase or get off the pot.


Glerups, 25% off, free shipping on $98+, free returns, use code KINJA25, expires 12/6

Glerups are made from 100% natural wool and have no equal in the lounge shoe space. Our readers can snag an exclusive 25% off this week with code KINJA25, guaranteed delivery by December 25th.

Our discount is available on all of Huckberry’s Glerups inventory, including the boot, shoe, and slip-on styles, the rubber sole options, and the Huckberry-exclusive midnight blue color.

I’ve been wearing Glerups for months now and could never go back to the cycle of buying and throwing away cheap slippers on a regular basis. The moisture-wicking properties of the wool, and the fact that they’re just ridiculously comfortable will ensure you keep them around for years.

Glerups are rarely discounted and make for an amazing holiday gift.


Update: Now only available for larger denominations. $150, $200, and $250 as of this morning.

A $100 Amazon gift card is basically as good as $100 in cash, but during the holidays, your gift card order also comes with a free teddy bear. You can give the whole thing as a gift, keep the card for yourself and give the bear, or vice versa; we won’t judge. The best part? He has a little Amazon arrow on the bottom of his foot.


When you cook with olive oil, you have three choices: You can pour imprecisely, you can make a measuring spoon dirty, or you can use Vremi’s $18 olive oil dispenser, which measures out a precise amount of oil before you pour it. I know which one I would choose. Needless to say, this would also make a great gift for the home cook in your life.


The ultimate gift for the James Bond fan in your life is down to an all-time low price today. $100 gets you all 24 films on Blu-ray, including Spectre (previous box sets didn’t include it), digital copies, 120 hours of bonus features, and even a mini book. So get ready to shake yourself a vodka martini, and settle in for a holiday marathon.


Aukey Surge Protector, $29 with code AUKEYPAS

Holy moly, this surge protector has everything. You get eight AC outlets, five 2.4A USB ports, and even a Quick Charge 3.0 port. I can’t imagine a better combination to power your desk.


After Catan, Ticket to Ride is probably the most popular “good” board game out right now, and you can grab a copy for $30 on Amazon today, just in time for the holidays.


We see $10 deals on the
