You have no shortage of great options for carrying files on the go in today’s Amazon Gold Box.

First up, this 480GB portable SSD promises speeds up to 4x faster than a typical hard drive, and it’s much smaller too at only 3" square. Today’s price is $30 less than usual. You can also score an internal SSD with the same capacity for just $90.

If you value space more than speed, $84 is the best price we’ve ever seen on a 3TB external. This would be a great one to plug into your Xbox One.

SanDisk’s 200GB microSD card is still the largest you can buy, and today’s $60 deal is the best price we’ve ever seen.

These deals are just scratching the surface though, so head over to Amazon’s Gold Box for more price drops on flash drives, MacBook expansion cards, and even a NAS, plus some great networking deals.


Preorder PlayStation 4 Pro 1TB, $400

The new PS4 Pro may be supply constrained at launch, and it may not. But if you preorder it, you won’t be charged until it ships, so there’s no harm in locking in an order now.

Also available at GameStop.

The iPhone 7 has slightly better battery life, but you’ll still want to keep plenty of charging cables around.

Advertisement

Anker’s kevlar-wrapped PowerLine cords are our readers’ favorite brand of Lightning cable, and you can get three for $20 right now. This three-pack typically costs $24, and buying three of them separately would usually cost $27. Not bad considering Apple’s charges $19 for just one of its inferior cables.

Update: Sold out. Keep checking back on Kinja Deals, or follow us on Twitter. We’ll be on the lookout for more affordable Bluetooth headphone deals to use with the iPhone 7.

You might have heard something about the new iPhone lacking a headphone jack, and possibly spent a few hours hyperventilating. Luckily, Bluetooth headphones are pretty good and cheap at this point, and your favorite pair is marked down to $22 right now in green. That’s inexplicably $5 less than the other colors, so we’re not sure how long it’s supposed to last.

With college football having kicked off and basketball season being right on the rim of returning (heh), it’s time to rep your team with Amazon’s Gold Box on Adidas NCAA gear. Grab caps, t-shirts, hoodies, and shorts marked down prices even a college budget would be able to handle.

There are a select number of teams, so be sure to check if yours is there before getting too hyped. The hoodie and long sleeve have the most team representation.

8-Bottle Wine Fridge, $60 with code C10FALLFLASH
Advertisement

You know those fancy, expensive kitchens that have their own wine fridges? Turns out, you can get your own 8 bottle model for an eminently affordable $60 with promo code C10FALLFLASH. It’ll (hopefully) cost more than that to fill it with wine.


Philips HF3500 Wake-Up Light, $44 after $10 coupon
Advertisement

It’s been awhile since we’ve seen a good deal on Philips’ life-changing wake-up lights, so if you’re not among the 20,000+ Gawker media readers who have already pulled the trigger, the entry level model just dropped to $44, the best price we’ve ever seen.

Advertisement

Update: The $10 coupon is gone, but $54 is still a good price.

Unlike an unsympathetic traditional alarm clock, the Philips Wake-Up Light eases you awake with a gradually-brightening light that simulates a natural sunrise, which is how humans are designed to wake up anyway. After the light gets you out of your R.E.M. cycle and ready to wake up, an audible alarm will finish the job at the time of your choosing. Plus, it also doubles as a very warm and pleasant reading light as you’re getting ready to go to sleep. I’ve owned this thing for over a year, and I can definitely tell the difference when I sleep away from home and have to rely solely on my iPhone alarm.

Advertisement

The light is listed for $54 right now, which would actually be a really good price on its own. But if you clip the $10 coupon on the page, you’ll see it for $44 at checkout. We don’t expect this to last long.

$10 off $50 purchases, promo code C10FALLFLASH
Advertisement

If you have any $50+ items on your shopping list, you can save $10 today by buying them through eBay. Just use promo code C10FALLFLASH at checkout to get the discount.

Unfortunately, this deal excludes gift cards, money, and, uh, real estate, so it’s not nearly as useful as some sitewide eBay coupons we’ve seen.

We’ve all had to throw away leftovers or cuts of meat and cheese that spent a little too much time in the fridge or freezer, but vacuum sealing your foods can keep them safe from freezer burn pretty much indefinitely, and dramatically extend their shelf life everywhere else.

It sounds like an expensive proposition, but today, Amazon’s selling this well-reviewed FoodSaver 4840 Starter Kit for $135, or about $45 less than usual. There are cheaper FoodSaver models out there, but the 4840 justifies its cost with a retractable vacuum sealing hose, allowing it to vacuum seal specially designed zipper bags, in addition to the usual heat-seal bags.

Of course you can use this to store meats in the freezer for a long time, but it can also keep cheese from molding, lettuce from wilting, or cookies from going stale, just to name a few examples. Think about how much food you throw away, and you’ll get a sense of just how quickly this purchase could pay for itself.

Note: The video above isn’t the exact same model, but the features presented are identical to the 4840.

Apple Music 12 Month Membership, $94. Discount shown at checkout.

If you subscribe to Apple Music anyway, and have no plans to stop, this $99 gift card will save you $20 over the course of a year. And now, for a limited time, you’ll save an extra $5 in your cart.

Google’s second OnHub router packs in plenty of smarts, but might have been a tough sell at its original $220 MSRP. But could you be tempted for $130? That’s a pretty solid price point for any high end 802.11ac router, let alone one with intuitive app control, and the ability to enable certain functions by waving your hand over the top.

It’s part of a larger Amazon Gold box deal full of networking and PC storage products. Head over here to see the full list.

Magicfly Outdoor Laser Light, $34 with code AKAA88SP
Advertisement

You don’t need it for another three months or so, but you can save on a holiday landscape laser light by buying it early.

If you aren’t familiar, these genius little gadgets use lasers to project red and green lights onto the front of your house, giving the appearance of holiday spirit without the hassle of actually hanging up outdoor lights. Last year was the first time they were widely available, but they were almost impossible to find, and consistently cost $40-$50. So yes, this deal is a bit ahead of schedule, but it never hurts to plan ahead.

Athleisure is still huge this fall, and you can get in on the trend for less if you head over to Finish Line. Not only are they having their huge End of Season sale, but there’s an extra 30% off clearance styles. Grab huge savings on everything from fashionable sneakers to Stella McCartney’s Adidas collab.

The heat is finally breaking, and if you were looking for an excuse to get outside, Backcountry’s sale on Mountain Hardwear is it. Grab up to 40% off on all Mountain Hardwear gear, from waterproof duffels to their Ghost Whisperer down jackets.

The Ninja Professional BL660 recently took home the title of your favorite affordable blender, and Amazon’s marked it down to $95 today, an all-time low.

Advertisement

In case you missed the Co-Op, the BL660 includes an 1100 watt motor, a 72 ounce pitcher, and a pair of single-serve smoothie cups so you don’t have to clean the big pitcher every time you feel like making yourself a smoothie to go.

6-Port 60W Charging Hub, $10 with code JNTOJ8MO. $11 for the black model.
Advertisement

It doesn’t support Quick Charge or USB-C, but $10 (or $11 for the black model) is one of the best prices you’re ever likely to see on a 60W, 6-port USB charging hub. Just use promo code JNTOJ8MO at checkout to get the discount.

Bluetooth OBD2 Scanner, $9 with code HAPYOBD4
Advertisement

You’ve heard of Automatic’s smart driving assistant, but if $80-$100 is too rich for your blood, this cheap OBD2 dongle connects to Android device over Bluetooth, and can fulfill many of the same functions using various third party apps.

50-Piece GoPro Accessory Kit, $18 with code MCHUBEGS
Advertisement

Your GoPro longs to go everywhere with you, and with this ridiculously-affordable accessory kit, it finally can. It’s also worth noting that these accessories will work with any action cam that uses a GoPro-style mounting system, like the Yi Action Cam.

Andake Travel Pillow, $6 with code OSDTP699
Advertisement

Before you head out on your next trip, be sure to pick up this popular inflatable travel pillow for just $7 with code OSDTP699.

Most of these pillows are just c-shaped inner tubes, but this model includes extra cushioning on the sides to help you nod off without straining your neck, even if you’re flying economy.

Aukey Portable Jump Starter, $54 with code ZY5XQUUE
Advertisement

We’re no strangers to portable car jump starter/USB battery pack combos around these parts, but this new model from Aukey is unique in its ultra-compact, flashlight-like design. In addition to its 12,000mAh USB power bank, it can put out 400 peak amps through a set of included jumper cables, which should be sufficient to start most standard car engines.

After this election, when our country descends into anarchy, you’ll be glad you bought this $7 survival “grenade.” Unwrap the 9' of 550 pound paracord, and inside you’ll find tin foil, tinder, a flint rod, a knife, and even fishing equipment to help you live off the land.

Extra 25% off Nature Valley. Discount shown at checkout.

Nature Valley bars are my weekday breakfast of choice, and Amazon’s taking an extra 25% off a variety of different flavors today, including three 24-bar variety value packs for just $9, the best price we’ve ever seen. Like all Amazon coupons, you won’t see the discount until checkout.

Pro tip: Break up the crunchy bars inside the wrapper before you open it, then pull out the pieces to avoid getting crumbs everywhere. It’s the only way.

Extra 20% off San Pellegrino and Perrier, discount shown at checkout

We’re all supposed to drink more water, but that’s a whole lot easier when there’s carbonation involved, so for a limited time you can save 20% on Perrier and San Pellegrino packs on Amazon. Just add your favorite option to your cart, and you’ll see the discount at checkout.

If there are any items on your wishlist that you wouldn’t mind buying slightly used, Amazon’s taking an extra 15% off nearly 20,000 select products from the Amazon Warehouse.

You can use this link to search for what you’re looking for, and you’ll see the 15% discount automatically at checkout. The deal is nominally for back-to-school and electronic products, but if you poke around, you’ll find a massive variety of eligible items.

Want wireless streaming and handsfree calling in your older car? This $16 dongle receives the Bluetooth signal from your phone, and transmits it to the FM radio station of your choice. It even includes two USB charging ports for your phone.

We’ve seen several deals on Bluetooth car kits in the past, but most require that your car include an AUX jack, whereas this only needs a working FM radio.
