Update: Now up to $10.
Velcro cable ties can transform the rat king of cables behind your desk or home theater into something more manageable, and you can get 100 of them today on Amazon for just $6. These are frequently listed as an add-on item, but at least for now, they’re eligible for standalone Prime shipping.
You guys, they’re finally here. USB battery packs with an actual, bona fide AC power outlets built in.
Obviously, they’re larger and more expensive than USB-only battery packs with a similar capacity, but RAVPower’s portable chargers still only weighs 1.9 pounds, and can charge your laptop via built-in AC outlets (100W on the larger model, 65W on the smaller). That’s an amazing convenience for long trips, conferences, or anywhere else that power is at a premium. And of course, you also get USB ports as well, in both standard and USB-C flavors.
I tested a slightly earlier version of this battery pack last year (the only major difference was the lack of a grounding prong), and it worked as advertised.
We see Bluetooth earbud deals just about every day, but even by our standards, $10 is cheap. At that price, you might as well buy an extra set to keep in your gym bag or luggage, in case you forget your main pair.
Apple’s newest iPad is mostly notable for being cheap (by Apple standards), and Adorama is making it even more enticing with an extra $50 discount. But be warned, it seems that the deal is only available on the 32GB Space Grey version.
Whether you spend a lot of time camping, or just want to be prepared for
the coming apocalypse an extended power outage, this 12W solar panel has an 8,000mAh battery built right in, so you can set it up during the day, and recharge your phone at night.
It’s kind of incredible how affordable Bluetooth speakers have gotten. This one from Aukey is just $13 right now with code AUKEYSP4. It’s not super loud, and the sound quality is most likely just adequate, but it’s shockproof and IPX6 water resistant, so you can take it to the beach, to the pool, or even into the shower.
With its incredibly durable construction and lifetime warranty, Anker’s PowerLine II Dura might be the last Lightning cable you ever have to buy. For a limited time, you can get the 10' model (white and black only) for just $13, or about $2 less than usual, and about $.25 less than the 6' one. I have one of these running behind my couch for a leisurely charging experience - five stars would recommend.
Amazon appears to have killed off the Fire HD 10, which is a shame, because it was a really solid full-sized tablet for the money. Luckily, you still have a chance to get one as Amazon is clearing out refurbs for just $120 today. That’s $80 less than the usual refurb price, and $110 less than what Amazon used to charge for new ones.
If you have an old hard drive or SSD lying around, or you just want to build your own external drive from scratch, this $7, 2.5" enclosure is one of the most affordable we’ve ever seen with UASP support, which allows for faster data transfer speeds when using an SSD.
The best all-around SSD for most people is down to $150 for 500GB, nearly $30 less than Amazon’s current price. It’d obviously be a great upgrade over a spinning hard drive for your computer, but you could also stick it in that aforementioned enclosure to turn it into a super-speedy external drive.
VPNs are in the news these days, and with good reason. So if you’re curious to sign up and start protecting your browsing history and personal data (or, you know, getting around websites’ geoblocks), NordVPN charges less per month than a typical trip to Starbucks.
NordVPN has long been one of the most popular and reliable VPN providers out there, and if you sign up for a one-year membership, promo code VIP70 will drop your annual price from $69 to $48. If you’re sure you want to commit, use this link instead to get a special two year plan for $79 with code 2YSpecial2017. Lifehacker has recommended Nord in some previous guides, but if you have any firsthand experience with the service, sound off in the comments!

If you thought you knew everything there was to know about paper notebooks, you haven’t seen the Rocketbook Wave.
The Wave looks and feels just like any 80 page paper notebook, but it has two interesting features that set it apart. First, a series of seven symbols printed at the bottom of every page can be paired in a smartphone app to your favorite web services. Cross out the horseshoe and scan the page with the app, and it’ll automatically upload to, say, Evernote. Draw an X through the Apple, and it’ll go to Google Drive.
I know what you’re saying: “$25 to save a few extra taps on my smartphone?” I’d agree with you, if the Wave couldn’t be reused up to five times. As long as you used a Pilot FriXion pen (one is included with the notebook), you just have to put the notebook in the microwave—bear with me here—with a mug of water, cook it for about four minutes, and your notebook will come out blank. So really, it’s more like a 400 page smart notebook, with a really cool party trick.
$25 is only about $2 less than its usual price, but it doesn’t really ever get much cheaper, so today’s a great day to pick one up.
Vacuuming is simultaneously the worst chore, and the chore most easily pawned off to a robot. How convenient!
While it lacks the brand recognition of a Roomba, and we can’t personally vouch for them like we can for the Eufy RoboVac 11, this ECOVACS vacuum has solid reviews, and are insanely affordable today at $160. You can even control it from your phone, which is very rare in this price range.
Everyone should own a slow cooker, and more specifically, everyone should own a programmable slow cooker. If you’re going to be at work for nine hours, but your recipe only calls for six hours of cooking, these will automatically switch to warm mode at the time of your choosing, so you can walk in the door and enjoy a delicious dinner.
This 6-quart model from Crock-Pot is Amazon’s top seller, and $32 is a match for an all-time low.
Your commute home after work is valuable unwinding time, at least if you manage to avoid infuriating traffic, but it can be even more relaxing with this car seat massager from Naipo. Just plug it into your car’s power outlet, pick your favorite setting, and you’ll be incredibly chill by the time you pull into the driveway.
Bonus: It also does heat, if your car doesn’t have heated seats. That’s reason enough to buy it if you live in a cold area.
Making coffee in the morning takes up valuable time that would be better spent sleeping. Going to a coffee shop on the way to work? Even more time. But grabbing a pre-packaged coffee beverage from the fridge? That, you can handle.
While supplies last, take 35% off a variety of illy canned and bottled coffee products via an Amazon coupon. There are multiple flavors available, but just note that you won’t see the discount until checkout.
I bought Cree LED bulbs back when they were first coming to market, and I spent more than $8 per bulb. Now, that gets you four of them. These put out the same amount of light as a 60W incandescent while using less than 10W of electricity, so they’ll pay for themselves in short order.
It’s a seat. It’s a box. It goes on your deck. You either need the Rubbermaid Deck Box or you don’t, but if you want one, $60 is an all-time low price, and more than $10 less than usual.
There aren’t enough hours in the day to waste time chopping onions, especially not when you can get a food processor for just $17. This model has been on Amazon since 2009, but today’s deal is the best price Amazon’s ever offered.
Buying furniture site unseen from a bulk store feels sketchy, but when it’s Apt2B stuff, you know you’re gonna get quality pieces. Use the code APT2BFURN15 on Jet and get 15% off furniture from Apt2b (max. $500 discount) and add a non-Ikea sofa, chair, or bed to your place.
Apt2B is having their own sitewide sale, but there are a decent amount of pieces that are cheaper on Jet when you use the code, so it’s definitely worth it to click around a bit.
You have a lot of options when it comes to airtight food storage containers, but Progressive’s Prepworks models are unique in that they each include a special tool designed for a specific purpose. For example, the flour container has a built-in leveling bar, and the brown sugar container has a terra cotta disc built into the lid to keep your sugar from drying out.
Today, you can get a complete set of six containers (flour, brown sugar, powdered sugar, coffee, and two mini containers) for $47, an all-time low.
The standalone flour container is also on sale for $11, a few bucks less than usual.
I don’t mean to alarm you, but you’re probably pooping all wrong. Luckily, there’s an easy solution: Squatty Potty, marked down to $20 today.
Squatty Potty is designed to lift your legs into an ideal bowel movement position, and according to Amazon reviewers at least, it really works. I can’t really overstate how popular popular this thing has been with our readers over the past year or so, so it’s time to purchase or get off the pot.
Now, even with the code, this is still a $250 backpack. I’m not blind to the fact that that’s a lot of money. But every GR1 is hand-built over the course of four hours in the USA, is covered by a lifetime warranty, and by basically all accounts is just incredibly well-made. There’s a very real chance that this will be the last backpack you ever have to buy.
Own one? Let us know what you think in the comments.
Grabbing breakfast or lunch with coworkers can be a great way to break up the day, but more often than not you’ll just wallow in your own indecision before ordering a bad $17 sandwich.
The original flavor also comes in powdered form now, which is also available with the aforementioned coupon.
You already know that packing cubes can make traveling slightly less terrible (though they won’t stop United from beating your ass), but Gonex’s take on the product category includes a second zipper and extra material, allowing them to expand while you’re packing, and compress when it’s time to stuff everything in to your carry-on. For a limited time, get a set of three in the color of your choice for $15 with promo code 468XKDLT.
So you want to try a standing desk, but you’re not ready to commit to it for eight hours a day...what do you do? You buy this monitor riser for $134 with code JA6YHFZQ, the best price we’ve ever seen on one of these.
This riser arrives fully assembled, and just sits on top of your existing desk. Put your monitor(s) on the top shelf, your keyboard and mouse on the bottom, and use its integrated spring system to raise the entire setup from a sitting to standing position within seconds. I own a very similar product from Varidesk (which was much more expensive, by the way), and I absolutely love it.
Miniature LED flashlights are so cheap and ubiquitous now, there’s no excuse not to have one tucked away in every glove box and every room of your house. Get four zoomable lights from OxyLED for just $14 today.
Everyone should keep an inverter in their glove box for powering laptops and other electronics in the car, and you’ve got two discounted options to choose from today, depending on how much power you need.
If you have any inkling that you might want a Costco membership, there’s never been a better time to join. For a limited time, Groupon’s offering Gold Star memberships for their standard price of $60, but throwing in a $20 Costco gift card, plus coupons for free paper towels, flavored water, and a pizza, and some other bonuses like savings on Costco travel vacations and an online order discount code. If you use them all, that package is worth over $200.

Yes, MLS isn’t top-tier European
soccer football, but it’s still fun as hell to watch. If you support a team on US soil, this one-day Amazon sale will help you get kitted out before the next match. Choose your favorite team and you’ll be able to find jerseys (including numbered ones), scarves, hats, and more. But this sale doesn’t have any stoppage time, it’s gone at the end of the day.
Note: Most product pages have multiple teams available, so don’t be thrown off by the examples shown on the index page.
Stock up for those end-of-summer trips with 15% off outdoor essentials from Jet. Everything from your favorite sunscreen, Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch, to Band-aids and bug spray, is included when you use the code GETOUTSIDE15 at checkout.
Just a quick FYI: there’s no minimum order, but the max discount is $30.
While the summer temps are still lingering, Columbia is here to help you prep for the cool down. Take up to 50% off a ton of outwear, shirts, pants, shoes, and more during their Summer Sale. If you plan on hiking, camping, or just generally being outside for the end of the summer, this sale can help outfit you for a whole lot less.
It’s as good a time as any to stock up on new workout clothes with PUMA’s Private Sale. There’s something for every level of exerciser, and some everyday basics that you can wear just to look like you kind of workout. Tons shoes an apparel (including Rihanna’s Fenty line) are marked down up to 75%. If that doesn’t convince you, there’s free shipping and returns on everything.
You probably spent way too much time in the sun this summer (I know my shoulders are begging for some moisture). This $8 Aveeno sample box can not only cure the summer flakiness that comes with being outside, you also get an $8 credit towards a bunch of other Aveeno products too. It’s basically a free trip to soft skin.
Amazon’s back at it again with another sample box deal. This time around, $8 gets you eight or more protein products from Optimum Nutrition, plus an $8 credit on your next eligible protein purchase from Amazon. If you were going to buy any of these products anyway, then this is a no-brainer.
There must be something in the air, because J.Crew Factory has had major discounts lately. Use the code EXTRA and take an extra 30% off all clearance items, which is insane seeing as practically everything is already marked down under $100. Maybe hold off on cleaning out your closet until after this sale is over.
In case you missed it during the Prime Day chaos, ExOfficio’s insanely popular sweat-wicking men’s underwear is still on sale for $12-$15, in multiple sizes and colors. It’s extremely rare for Amazon to have this many options in stock, let alone at a discount, so don’t miss your chance to stock up.
While not quite as small as some of our favorite minimalist wallets, the new Swift Wallet is well-built and has a ton of features, and you can get it for about $70 by preordering.
First, let’s talk cards. The Swift Wallet features four RFID-protected card slots (each of which can hold about three cards comfortably, an exterior coin/card pocket that’s purposely not RFID-protected for contactless payment cards, and a few small interior pockets for business cards.
The Swift’s claim to fame though is its unique cash slot. Your bills sit behind the card holders on either side of the wallet’s interior, meaning you can swipe a thumb up the middle of the wallet to slide bills out with ease.
I know Kickstarter projects can occasionally go pear-shaped, but the team behind Swift has successfully delivered on three previous wallet Kickstarters, and they sent me a demo unit to check out as well, so I don’t think you have much to worry about here.
Zappos is basically a one-stop shoe destination already, but right now, they’re having an actual sale, something they haven’t done in years. Grab discounted shoes from Cole Haan, Brooks, Nike, Stuart Weitzman, Frye, and more for men and women. And, if you’re part of their rewards program, get 3x the points on the over 40,000 items on sale.
If you’ve never checked out Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale, what are you even doing on Kinja Deals? The retailer puts thousands of fall and winter styles, plus Nordstrom Beauty Exclusives, on sale way before they go into the stores. Once the sale is over, you’ll only be able to get them for full price, so you’d better get on it. The sale lasts until August 6th.

Want to jog your memory about the Jason Bourne series? The Ultimate Collection Blu-ray is down to an all-time low $32 today on Amazon, which gets you three great films, a disc full of special features, and also Jason Bourne and The Bourne Legacy spin-off.

Be your own favorite pizza topping this summer with these inflatable pizza pool floats, now cheaper than ever. I hear the crust is a little soggy, but it’s tough to complain at this price.
These controllers can pair over Bluetooth to your PC, iPhone, Android device, and yes, even your Nintendo Switch. Luke Plunkett over at Kotaku is a big fan, and you can read his full review here, if you’re on the fence.
$33 is about $10 less than the going rate on Amazon right now, and you can choose from the NES or Famicon paint jobs.
The bundle includes a number of GameMaker: Studio modules (Studio Pro, HTML5, iOS, Android, and Windows), which cost anywhere from $150 to $800 each at retail, plus several games that include source code or UWP modules for you to tear apart, modify, and learn from. As always, you can pay what you want, but options are spread across three different price tiers, the most expensive of which unlocks at $15.
The newest Humble Bundle doesn’t have any video games in it; but it does have books that’ll teach you how to make them. Specifically, 19 books focused on Unity and Unreal Engine development. As usual, they’re split among three different price tiers, and you can get them all for as little as $15.
