TOP TECH DEALS
Anker’s PowerCore Turbo is a bit of an oddball in Anker’s lineup, but you can score one today for 40% off with a very enticing deal.
On its face, the PowerCore Turbo is a pretty standard issue 16,000mAh battery pack. But the secret sauce here is the included car charger that can recharge the entire thing in 90 minutes, about 10x faster than with a microUSB charger. In fact, just 8 minutes plugged into the car charger will give it enough juice to fill an iPhone 6s, which is just bananas. Personally, I wish it came with a fast wall charger rather than a car charger, but at $30, it’s tough to complain.
It’s a great day to upgrade to our readers’ favorite rechargeable batteries, as Amazon’s marked the 8-pack of Eneloop AAs down to $16 (within a few cents of an all-time low), and the 16-pack down to a new low of $31.
Neither of these packs include a charger, but Amazon sells one for $15.
If you prefer non-rechargeable batteries for whatever reason (Earth Day was this weekend, you monster), here’s 100 AmazonBasics AAs for $16.
If you’re still rocking an old 802.11n wireless router at home, you can upgrade to a popular TP-Link Archer C9 for $96 today (with code 20TPLC9), within a few bucks of an all-time low, and the best price of the year. Nearly 6,000 5-star reviews can’t be wrong!
You can never have enough Lightning cables, so grab an extra one for $5, or two for $10 today from Mpow. Just be sure to note the promo codes.
Note: For the two-pack, choose the second option below, and manually add two of them to your cart.
It’s aluminum, it’s adjustable, it holds any device, and it’s $8. What’s not to love about this desktop phone stand?
DJI’s Mavic Pro quadcopter packed intelligent flight features and an amazing camera into an incredibly portable package, and you can save $50 (and sales tax, unless you live in NY or NJ) today with code BHNAB17. That’s the first deal we’ve seen on the Mavic, which you were lucky to find in stock until recently, let alone at a discount.
Update: Available from Roberts Camera as well for $5 less, plus no tax for most.
The IPX7 water-resistant UE Roll 2 Bluetooth speaker sounds great, can connect to two source devices at once (and store six more in memory), and can pair with a second UE speaker for stereo sound. No wonder it was one of your five favorite water resistant Bluetooth speakers.
$55 is a match for the best price we’ve ever seen, but we don’t expect it to last long.
Our readers recently named Anker PowerPort as their favorite line of USB charging hubs, and the PowerPort Speed 5 is on sale for $25 today, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen. This particular model includes a Quick Charge 3.0 port to juice up compatible Android devices up to 80% faster.
With this $12 Mpow Streambot Bluetooth receiver, you can turn everything from your dusty old iHome to your legacy home theater system into a Bluetooth speaker. Just plug in the AUX jack, connect up to two devices, and start streaming.
Nonda’s original Zus smart car charger was a one-of-a-kind device with two very poorly-placed USB ports, but the newly redesigned Quick Charge 2.0 model fixes that fatal flaw for just $8.
That’s a great price for any Quick Charge car charger, but Nonda’s has some features you won’t find anywhere else. Most notably, your phone connects to the charger over Bluetooth, and every time the connection drops (meaning your car has turned off), a free app will make a note of your location so you can find your parking spot later.
In addition, you can track your mileage for tax and expensing purposes (free for 60 drives per month, $3/month or $30/year for unlimited), and even monitor the health of your car battery if you sign up for a $1 per month premium subscription. Even if you don’t use those features though, this is well worth the $8 for the parking location feature alone.
TOP HOME DEALS
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 $206 deal is the first discount Amazon’s offered in 2017.
If you don’t have a pizza peel, Pizzacraft sells an accessory kit that also includes a cleaning brush.
The great thing about Philips Hue is that your fancy lighting profiles aren’t limited to standard bulbs; the Hue Lighstrip lets you to stick a rope of color-changing, Wi-Fi connected lights anywhere in your house.
The Lightstrip hardly ever goes on sale, but while supplies last, Prime members can get it for $66, or 20% off, with the discount shown at checkout. This kit includes a 6' strip, but you can add on 40" extensions for a (comparatively) affordable $25, if that’s not quite long enough.
Just note that you’ll need a Hue Bridge to control this thing; it’s not a starter kit on its own.
I’m calling it: It’s summer already. So pick up a pair of hammered copper mule mugs, and go enjoy a refreshingly cold drink.
This non-coffee drinker bought one of these last year, and I’m absolutely in love with it. All you have to do is fill the basket with ground coffee, fill the container with water, and let it steep overnight in the fridge. The resulting coffee concentrate needs to be watered down, so one batch should last you several days.
As a rule, most seats you spend time in during the day don’t have enough lumbar support, but that’s easy to fix with this $21 adjustable cushion set. This includes two separate cushions that can be used in various positions and combinations depending on the type of chair you’re in.
Our readers have bought tens of thousands of OxyLED’s motion-sensing night lights, and now they’re offering you the first ever deal on the supersized T-02 Plus.
The Plus features 36 individual LED bulbs, a rechargeable battery, and unlike a several similar models, the ability to turn on manually, rather than relying on the motion and ambient light sensors. It’s big and bright enough to light up an entire closet or a large cabinet, but personally, I’d stick mine under my kitchen cabinets to light up the counter below.
The Roomba 960 is a bit extravagant, but at $100 off, it might be worth considering if less expensive robotic vacuums haven’t checked all of your boxes.
The key feature here is an onboard camera that allows the Roomba to build a constantly-updating map of your home, which means it can clean every square foot without wasting an hour ping ponging around the same room. Of course, you’ll also get Wi-Fi for app control, and a more powerful cleaning system than the entry level models.
Today’s deal is a match for last year’s holiday shopping season, so if it’s been on your wish list, I’d get on this before they’re all cleaned out.
Garment bags are the perfect solution for keeping fancy clothing safe while traveling, but I highly recommend storing those suits and dresses in one of these even in a closet. For $10, you can grab a 3-piece garment bag set, plus a shoe bag, with the code AFQ8LBMP.
A generator probably isn’t high on the list of things you need to buy right this instant, but they tend to become very necessary at inconvenient and/or stressful times, so when you can get Amazon’s #1 seller for an all-time low $141, you should take advantage just for the peace of mind.
Update: Now up to $17, which is still a nice price.
Aside from a single switch that toggles between 2.5 and 1.85 gallons per minute, this showerhead doesn’t have any notable features to speak of. But I can tell you from years of experience that its water coverage is beyond excellent. Each of the four valves uses Delta’s H2Okinetic system to agitate the water and create a full, perfectly dispersed wall of water, rather than four individual streams. It’s a difficult sensation to describe, but I absolutely recommend you try it for yourself.
$16 is the best price Amazon’s ever listed on this thing, and an absolute steal for something you’ll use and appreciate (hopefully) every day.
We love Pyrex around these parts, and their 3-pack of measuring cups is down to $11 today. In addition to looking great, the cups are microwave and (semi) dishwasher safe, and since they’re made of glass, they won’t absorb any odors, flavors, or stains. Plus, they just feel heavy and professional, and would make a nice gift.
Animals drink more water when it’s flowing, and this discounted PetSafe Drinkwell mimics a bubbling stream to encourage your furry friends to stay hydrated. Plus, the top tier of the fountain is high enough that older pets can enjoy it without bending down too far.
It’s easy to see why Cuisinart’s DBM-8 electric burr coffee grinder is Amazon’s top seller in the category. It’s affordable, it’s dead simple to use, it includes 18 coarseness settings, and it looks great. Today’s $35 price tag is roughly $10-$15 less than usual, so perk up, and lock in your order before it sells out.
Contigo’s Autoseal travel mug has long been a reader favorite, but the new Autoseal Chill looks like a great companion water bottle. It launched this month for $23, but now you can get it for $20, with several different lid colors.
Amazon’s Prime Store Card automatically nets you 5% cash back on all Amazon purchases, but from now until the middle of May, they’re adding 10% on top of that for select Mother’s Day gifts. Think relaxing candles, fancy baby gear to make life a little easier, and noise cancelling headphones to drown everyone out.
Note that the Prime Store Card is NOT the same thing as the Amazon Rewards Visa. Both cards include 5% cash back, but the Visa is a full-on credit card, while the Prime Store Card can only be used on Amazon.com.
Yesterday, we shared that Belkin’s WeMo Mini Smart Switch was on sale for $30, but TP-Link has blown that deal out of the water with a pair of discounts.
You can choose from the standard TP-Link Smart Plug for $18, or the functionally identical Mini model for $25, with the discount shown in cart. Those are both the best prices we’ve ever seen, and fantastic deals for anyone looking to dip their toes into home automation. These work almost exactly the same as WeMo switches, with the exception of their lack of IFTTT support.
Before you comment that the prices are wrong, let me reiterate one more time that you won’t see the discount until you get to the checkout screen.
TOP LIFESTYLE DEALS
Summer in NYC is basically a time to be outside and pretend that the humidity isn’t crushing you like giant piles of garbage that sit on every corner. Turn your fantasy summer day-dreams into reality with ModCloth’s BOGO 50% off sale on swimsuits, sandals, sunglasses, and even pool floats. It may not help with the dew point, but you’ll look like you’re having a good time, and that’s what matters.
Right now, GAP has everything discounted up to 50% off, and on top of that, an extra 20% off with the code GETMORE. The exclusions list for the extra 20% discount unfortunately includes denim, but there are a bunch of jeans in marked down to really great prices.
If you can’t be bothered to schlep to the gym, this cleverly designed PowerBlock dumbbell set lets you work out at home without taking up a ton of space. Each dumbbell adjusts from 2.5 to 50 pounds (with the option to expand later) in 2.5 pound increments with just the flick of a selector pin. It’s like a complete weight rack that could almost fit into a shoebox.
Today’s $240 deal is $60 less than usual and an all-time low, but it’s already backordered, so don’t waste any time.
May the 4th is basically the Star Wars fan’s Christmas. Rewatch the original trilogy with even more geek cred during ThinkGeek’s May the 4th Star Wars sale. Get 40-60% off a ton of Star Wars gear, from apparel, to accessories, to collectibles. There’s enough to fill a sandcrawler two times over.
In case you really couldn’t be bothered to tie your own damn shoes (of if you have a kid and are sick of tying theirs), use the code RLSYAXPK and get basically any color of elastic shoelaces for just $6. You can even cut them to get rid of any excess after you install them.
Make any sneaker a slip on, because your time is obviously worth more than wasting it doing bunny ears with actual shoelaces.
Alright, this is pretty clever. Vansky’s $11 rope lights can hang from the top of a tent via three included cable ties, attach to the hood of your car via built-in magnets, or even turn the included carrying bag into a portable lantern.
They don’t include a built-in battery, but they plug straight into any USB power source, so you can use them with any of the half dozen or so portable battery packs you have rattling around in a drawer.
Before you head out on your next camping trip or beach vacation, you may want to grab this 20L dry bag to keep your gear safe from the elements. Just use code WB22EITJ to get it for $10.
TOP MEDIA DEALS
Star Trek’s The Original Series Roddenberry Vault includes 12 of the Roddenberry estate’s favorite episodes, plus a ton of deleted scenes, behind the scenes footage, and other clips from the cutting room floor that you can’t see anywhere else. Needless to say, this would be an amazing gift for the Trekker in your life.
Star Trek deals are coming at us at warp factor nine today. In addition to the $30 Roddenberry Vault, you can also get the 50th Anniversary TV and Movie collection for an all-time low $80. That includes the entire original series, the first six films, the animated series, and tons of special features.
TOP GAMING DEALS
If your board game collection is gathering dust, it’s time to freshen up your options with Amazon’s one-day Gold Box deal.
Nearly 100 games are available, including popular titles like Labyrinth, The Grizzled, Scotland Yard, San Juan, and a lot more. Just note that like all Gold Box deals, these prices are only available today, and the best stuff will likely sell out early, so don’t roll the dice by waiting.
Bonus: This isn’t part of the sale, but if you don’t have the Catan base game, it’s down to an all-time low $26 right now as well.
If you missed out on last week’d Gold Box deal, Ghost Recon Wildlands is back down to $35 again on Amazon. Not bad considering the game’s barely a month old.
Humble’s newest bundle includes up to seven space-themed games, including Planetary Annihilation: TITANS and Galactic Civilizations II and III, but the star of the show is undoubtedly Offworld Trading Company. You’ll need to donate at least $15 to get a copy, but considering the six other games you’ll also receive, and the fact that it’s selling for $40 on Steam right now, I’d say that’s a fair trade.
Razer made a 5.1 sound bar designed specifically for gaming, because of course they did, and it’s marked down to an all-time low $130 today. Just be careful with that subwoofer if you have neighbors in your building, or like, within a half mile or so.
