While it’s definitely the least popular of the original Amazon Echo trifecta, the battery-powered Amazon Tap is worth a look with this $70 refurbished deal.
The big knock against the Tap was that it required you to press a button to activate Alexa, whereas you could conjure her with your voice on the Echo and Dot. So if you dismissed it at launch because of that fatal flaw, you might have missed that it’s since been remedied. You can now enable an always-listening mode on the Tap, and wake it up just by saying “Alexa,” even when it’s running on battery power.
So now the Tap is essentially a better-sounding Echo Dot that you can take anywhere, and I’d say that’s easily worth an all-time low $70. Yesterday’s refurbished Echo Dot deal sold out within hours, so don’t be surprised if it’s the same story today.
Anker’s PowerPorts are our readers’ favorite USB charging hubs, and the 6-port/60W PowerPort 6 is just $20 today on Amazon with promo code GEYC7LFE. Keep these at your desk, on your nightstand, or even (my personal favorite) behind your couch, and you’ll never been short a place to charge.
Whether your current mouse is giving you chronic wrist pain, or you just want to try something different, this 4.2 star rated wireless ergonomic vertical mouse from Anker is only $14 today, or $6 less than usual. In addition to the clever design, it even comes with three adjustable DPI settings and forward/back buttons, which are pretty rare at this price level.
This 10,000mAh battery pack doesn’t have Quick Charge or USB-C, but it does have the most important feature you can get in a battery pack: An incredibly slim design.
It’s going to be years before most of the USB ports in the world use the new USB-C standard, so until then, you’ll need adapters that allow you to use both. That’s what makes this RAVPower cable so great; it’s USB-C on one side, but the other end forks into both USB-C and USB-A connectors, so you can plug into any port you find, no dongles necessary.
Whether you’re backing up your files, rolling your own Dropbox clone, or storing a massive collection of legally obtained video content, a NAS is the right tool for the job, and this two-bay Qnap is down to an all-time low price today.
Just note that it doesn’t include drives, so you’ll want to pick up NAS-optimized WD Reds to stick in there.
TaoTronics’ Rock Bluetooth speaker, with its wraparound linen cover, is one of the most attractive I’ve ever seen, but don’t let that blind you from the impressive tech: 24 hours of battery life (same as the popular Anker SoundCore), dual 8W drivers, and the newest Bluetooth 4.2 standard.
Update: After running out the second time, Anker just added an additional 10,000 $99 backer rewards, so there’s still time to preorder.
Needless to say, we don’t make a habit of covering crowdfunding campaigns, but given that we’ve personally used almost every product Anker has ever made, and our readers have purchased more than 200,000 of their products without issue, we’ll make an exception. Especially for this huge preorder discount.
Even better, I checked out two engineering samples of the Liberty+ on a recent trip to Seattle. They were comfortable (using the only size of ear tips available with the samples), and sounded great both when streaming Spotify and playing a few minutes of some podcasts.
As you’d expect from Anker, the headline spec here is battery life. Liberty+ gets a competitive 3.5 hours of playtime from the earbuds, but a whopping 48 hours out of the charging case. They also have some waterproofing, use Bluetooth 5.0, and work with your favorite voice assistants. Just don’t expect to wear them underwater or find any built-in fitness tracking.
I’ve been using wireless earbuds most days since mid-2016, and between our team we’ve tested more than ten different pairs. Anker’s Liberty+ are a steal at $89 (or $99 if you miss the early bird special), and while they will of course get discounted many times in the future from their $149 MSRP, we wouldn’t expect this price point again any time soon.
Expected shipping in October 2017.
While Anker’s come out with nylon wrapped charging cables, and even some with lifetime warranties, their original PowerLine Lightning cable is still a big improvement over the one that came with your phone, and you can get three for an all-time low $18 right now with code PRIME258.
Aukey’s tiny USB car charger is a reader favorite, but this iClever model is the same size and puts out the same 4.8A of power over two ports, and it’s only $7 today with promo code ICCAR699. Plus, unlike the plastic Aukey, this one’s made of aluminum, which is supposedly better for heat dissipation, but it definitely looks cooler.
You don’t need to sell a kidney to afford noise-cancelling Bluetooth earbuds; these 4 star-rated Cowin E-7s are just $38 right now, or $32 off with promo code 42YFK63R.
They might not have the brand recognition of Sony or Bose, but these headphones pack in 30 hours of battery life, the ability to use them in wired mode if the battery dies, and yes, active noise cancellation that reviewers say works really well.
Mark your calendars, because Amazon’s third annual Prime Day is July 11, with the deals actually kicking off at 9PM ET the night before.
Of course, we’ll be sifting through the avalanche of deals to help you find the best stuff, but in the meantime, a few great digital discounts are already live on Amazon’s Prime Day hub page. The highlights here are six months of Audible for $9 each (rather than the usual $15), up to 40% off Kindle Unlimited subscriptions, and 15% off July 4 snacks. Again, these deals are available starting today, if you have a Prime subscription (sign up for a free 30 day trial here).
The best early access deal of them all though is undoubtedly four months of Amazon Music Unlimited for just $1. It’s only available for new members, but that’s the best deal we’ve seen on the service, which will still be less expensive than Spotify Premium ($8 vs. $10) after the promotional period expires.

You can’t control these semi-smart power outlet switches with your phone, or automate them with IFTTT recipes like you can with Belkin’s WeMo line, but you can control them from across your house with a remote control, and they’re incredibly affordable today.
Anker’s settings its sights on the affordable LED lighting market with the release of its new Lumi night lights, and you can save 20% at launch for a limited time.
This sale is valid for both the battery-powered and plug-in models, but you should note that the stick-anywhere battery lights include a motion sensor to save power, while the plug-in lights will glow whenever it’s dark. Today’s prices are a match for a pair of launch deals we saw on these lights, but those sold out within minutes.
Chemical Guys makes everything you need to keep your car showroom-spotless, and one of their best bundles is $10 off for Prime members today.
The Chemical Guys Best Car Wash Bucket Kit includes soaps, a sponge, towels, and, unsurprisingly, a bucket. Just find a hose, and you’ve got everything you need to get your car spotless.
Normally priced at $80, Prime members will see a $10 discount automatically at checkout.
6" probably isn’t thick enough for a mattress you’ll sleep on every day, but it’s just fine for a kid’s room or guest room, and $100 for a queen is an insanely good price when it comes to foam mattresses.
We’ll probably be a Russian colony soon, so you might as well start assimilating to the culture by buying a dash cam. This one from Aukey includes a 1080p Sony sensor and 170 degree field of view, a design that tucks behind your rear view mirror, and capacitors that are rated to work in temperatures from -4°F to 149°F.
The bar we generally use for a very good deal on a tool set is roughly $.50 per tool, so when you can get a 210-piece set for $75, you should jump at the opportunity.
That gets you ratchets, screwdrivers, pliers, a tape measure, and more. Just add a hammer, and you’ve got everything you need to perform most basic DIY tasks around your home and garage. Just remember that this is a Gold Box deal, meaning this price is only available today, or until sold out.
Having an existential crisis about how humble your abode is looking? Jet.com has a plethora of home decor, furniture, and outdoor accoutrements to have a summer-ready home for a lot less. Use the codes HOME10 for $10 off orders of $50+, HOME25 for $25 off orders of $100+, and HOME50 for $50 off orders of $200+.
Update: Sold out on Amazon, but available for $1 more at Best Buy.
Almost all Dyson deals we see are on refurbished units, but this brand new Dyson V6 is down to $211 on Amazon right now, easily an all-time low.
The V6 is ideal for cleaning rugs, hardwood floors, cars, ceilings, shelves...pretty much anything really. The best part though? It’s cordless, so your days of tripping over the power cord and winding it back up after you’re done will be a thing of the past.
Those big, fancy swing arm lamps aren’t just for architects and lawyers in dramatic films; you can clip this one from OxyLED onto just about any desk for $60 today with code KINJAT4S. That’s a whopping $30 off, and a great deal for a lamp that yo can adjust every which way.
You never want to be in a situation where you need a solar and hand crank-powered weather radio with a flashlight and USB port for charging your phone, but when you can get one for $17, you probably should buy it just in case.
This Aukey oil diffuser features a nice-looking faux-wood base and a color-changing mood light on top, and will de-stink and humidify a room for hours on end. Just bring in a masseuse and cut some cucumber slices for your eyes, and you’ve got yourself a spa.
Don’t forget the oils!
Anker’s 1300 lumen LC130 flashlight is so bright, it ought to be illegal. Luckily, it’s not, and it’s also cheaper than ever today with promo code BEST0703.
In addition to the insanely bright bulbs, the LC130 features IP67 dust and water resistance, five different light modes, and a six hour battery that you can recharge over USB (it is Anker, after all).
Buying headlight bulbs for your car before you need them will save you an inconvenient (and if it’s at night or raining, potentially illegal) trip to the auto parts store, and with this $4 Amazon coupon, you might as well stock up.
Philips VisionPlus bulbs have great customer reviews, and come in tons of different sizes to fit most vehicles. Just note that you won’t see the $4 discount until checkout, and don’t forget to do a little Googling to make sure you’re getting the right set.
Still haven’t made the transition to LED? Amazon will sell you a 6-pack of highly rated TaoTronics soft white bulbs for just $13 right now with promo code BS52P2JO. These put out the brightness equivalent of a 60W incandescent, but with only 9W of electricity each. Plus, many local utility companies offer rebates when you buy these things, so they should pay for themselves in short order.
Note: These bulbs aren’t dimmable, which isn’t surprising at this price, but just make sure you’re aware.
Just because your house or apartment doesn’t have a doorbell doesn’t mean you’ll have to rely on knocking like a caveman. This $12 kit has everything you need to install one, no wiring required, including two plug-in receivers. ou can even choose from a variety of different chimes, and adjust the volume levels to your preference.
I’m not going to sit here and tell you that buying a travel pillow will make flying pleasant. But maybe, just maybe, it’ll let you sleep through the experience to make it go faster. This memory foam model from Naipo is just $13 today on Amazon, and needless to say, you’d pay a bit more than that at the Hudson News outside your gate.
The newest, big-screen Nest Learning Thermostat 3.0 is down to $198 today, which is a match for the best discount we’ve ever seen. These don’t go on sale all that often, so if you have one on your wishlist, I wouldn’t hesitate.

A few months ago, Uniqlo launched a collaboration with Nintendo and a bunch of artists created a really awesome t-shirt range. At $15 a pop, it was worth it, but it’s even more worth it now that they’re all marked down to just $10 for both men and women. Show your love for Mario, the townsfolk of Animal Crossing, Pokemon, and more.
Maybe there’s a special birthday coming up, or you just want to buy yourself something sparkly. Whatever’s happening, this jewelry sale on Amazon probably has a piece of jewelry for it. The price range is massive, with pieces for as low as $7. Real and synthetic diamonds are scattered about, as well as gemstones, so there’s really something for everyone.
You do not have to go through the measurement and customization process to lock in this discount. You can checkout now and submit later, which makes it very easy to gift a suit.
This matches our exclusive Black Friday discount, which is the best deal Indochino’s ever offered on their entire line, and one of our most popular exclusives ever.
Having a suit that fits perfectly is great, but the little details Indochino lets you customize, from your jacket lapels to pocket flaps to accent stiching around your buttons, are where things get fun.
How It Works
Measure and customize from home...
Follow the directions on Indochino’s site to submit your measurements and customize your suit. Once the suit arrives, if anything doesn’t fit quite right, Indochino will provide directions for your local tailor, along with a $75 credit to cover their work. If for whatever reason your tailor cannot resolve the issues, Indochino will remake your suit. Shipping and return shipping are free.
If you live near a showroom...
Purchase your suit online with our discount and take your receipt/account info into an Indochino showroom. They’ll do your measurements, walk you through your customization options, and have your suit delivered to the showroom. Return once it arrives for any final alterations if they’re needed.
Those who already have a closet full of suits may want to opt for something more interesting like the Indigo Twill Windowpane, while the rest of us should go for something versatile.

Today you can grab a Fitbit Aria smart scale on Amazon for $100, within $10 of the best price they’ve ever listed. It only really makes sense to buy this scale if you own (and regularly use) a Fitbit, but if you do, the Aria sync your weight, BMI, and body fat % to the Fitbit app to track your goals and progress over time.
Our readers have bought thousands upon thousands of nose hair trimmers over the years, but this newish model from Philips ups the ante with an eyebrow trimming attachment, plus comb guards to ensure that you don’t make any tragic mistakes.
It’s as good a time as any to stock up on new workout clothes with PUMA’s Semi-Annual 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.
You can get $20 sunglasses that are polarized or $20 sunglasses with metal frames, but rarely both, and never in this many different styles.
Privé Revaux makes polarized, stylish shades for less than half of what you’d expect, and right now, our readers can take advantage of their best prices ever. Yes, the models are celebrities looking super awkward who probably had nothing better to do, but the sunglasses are actually pretty great looking.
The styles you see through this link are marked down to just $22 with promo code KJAPRV25 (only the lens colors you see on the search page), or choose one of these with any lens color for just $19 with the code KJAPRV35. The shades are mostly brow bar and aviator frames, which are probably the easiest styles for anyone to wear.
If you want to dip your toes into the world of electric toothbrushes, Philips’ entry level Sonicare Essence line is an amazing value at $20. I’ve been using this brush for years, and I still love it.
We saw this deal last month, and it sold out very quickly, so I wouldn’t hesitate to lock in your order if you’re interested.

If you love books, but don’t have as much time as you’d like to actually sit down and read them, Amazon’s Prime Day Audible deal has your name on it.
For a limited time, Prime members can get six months of the service for $9 each, down from the usual $15. That entitles you to a new book of your choice each month, and everything you buy is yours to keep, even if you cancel after the six month promotional period ends. While most of these kinds of promotions are only available to new members, you can get this deal if you’ve been a paid Audible subscriber in the past, as long as you haven’t been a member within the last 30 days.
For the rest of Amazon’s early Prime Day deals, check out our roundup here.
At $8 per month for Prime members, Amazon Music Unlimited was already more affordable than Spotify Premium or Apple Music, but Amazon’s sweetening the pot for new members by offering four months for just $1, for a limited time.
This deal is part of Amazon’s early Prime Day deals, and is by far the best deal they’ve ever offered on the service. If you’re a Prime member but haven’t signed up for Music Unlimited before, what’s $.25 per month to try it out?

Name brand gaming mice don’t need to cost more than a new release game: This Logitech G300s is only $20 today, matching the best deal we’ve ever seen. Despite the low price, you still get nine programmable buttons, three onboard memory profiles (with different lighting colors to help you distinguish them), and a 2500 DPI sensor. That’s a lot of mouse for the price.
Injustice 2 packs a shockingly good story mode into a very fun fighting game, and you can already get it for $40 on Amazon, despite the fact that it’s less than two months old.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is out, which means if you’re lucky enough to own a Nintendo Switch, you probably have already bought an extra set of Joy-Con. Now, they’re easier to charge than ever, as Amazon’s taking $5 off the official Nintendo charging stand, one of the first discounts we’ve seen.
