Top Tech Deals
We see a ton of deals on affordable Bluetooth earbuds, but if you’ve been waiting for a solid discount on noise-cancelling on-ears before you cut the cord, you’re in luck today.
Amazon’s marked down a few different BÖHM Bluetooth headphones to $68-$88 today as part of a Gold Box deal. The on-ears are $20 cheaper than the over-ears, but both include active noise cancelling, which is basically unheard of at this price, especially on wireless headphones. One color has already sold out, so I wouldn’t wait.
Truly wireless earbuds were rare and expensive like, a couple months ago. Now they’re practically falling off the boats from China, and you can get a set from Mpow for $33 with code BF9K9AVW.
These don’t have many reviews yet, but Mpow has been making Bluetooth earbuds for a long time, and unlike some other truly wireless models we’ve seen, these do include a charging stand with a built-in battery (though oddly, not a charging case).
The best all-around SSD for most people is down to $134 for 500GB, the best price we’ve seen on this model. It’d obviously be a great upgrade over a spinning hard drive for your computer, but you could also stick it in an enclosure to create your own super-fast external drive.
Today and tomorrow only, Anker’s discounting several popular cases and screen protectors for iPhones, iPads, and even the Nintendo Switch. There are too many products and promo codes to list here, but head over to this post to see them all.
No matter how much space you need for photos, movies, or video games, there’s an external drive on sale for you today. Just note that the two larger drives will work with the Xbox One, but not the PS4; apparently the built-in USB hub confuses the console.
$60 gets you a PowerPort 4 wall charger (currently $26), a PowerCore+ 10000 battery pack (currently $30), a PowerLine+ microUSB cable (currently $10), a PowerLine+ Lightning cable (currently $15), and a carrying case (priceless). Not Just the charging products alone would cost $81 purchased separately, so you’re saving over 25%, and getting a nice little tech dopp kit to boot.
Ringke’s hosting another $4 phone case sale for the Galaxy S8, LG G6, and iPhone 7, and you can check out all of the options and promo codes here.
If you still haven’t tried out a home theater bias light, there’s never been a better time to pick one up. Vansky’s LED bias light strips plug directly into your TV’s USB port for power, and stick to the back of the set via built-in adhesive. Once you turn your TV on, the LEDs cast a soft glow on the wall behind them, which can reduce eyestrain when watching in the dark, and improve your TV’s perceived black levels.
Our readers have bought thousands of the 35.4" models, but now, you can opt for 80" strips for just a few bucks more. Rather than just stretching them across the top of your TV set, these can wrap all the way around, resulting in a fuller halo of light on the wall behind. You can also cut them to length, if 80" is a little too long.
Whether you like to sing in the shower, or want to catch up on podcasts by the pool, this water resistant Bluetooth speaker features IPX7 water resistance, so it can survive a full dunking.
Your favorite USB car charger just happens to be the smallest one you can buy, and you can grab it on Amazon for $7 today with code AUKECAR7. That’s about as cheap as it ever gets, so pick one up if it’s been on your wish list.
The SoundBuds were my go-to Bluetooth earbuds until I got a pair of AirPods, and the SoundCore in particular is notable for its impressive bass and 24 hour battery life.
One day, we might get representatives in Washington that value their constituents’ privacy over corporate profits, but until then, it’s as good a time as any to sign up for a VPN service. Luckily, it costs 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 $72 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!
Top Home Deals
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.
Logitech’s Circle home security camera can alert you to movement, let you check in on your cats from work, and act as an intercom, just like basically every other internet-connected security camera these days. But it’s unique in its ability to cut the most interesting things it sees each day into a 60 second highlight reel, all automatically.
It was a pretty solid piece of kit at its original $200, but at an all-time low $130, there’s never been a better chance to join the smart camera club.
Bodum’s double walled drinking glasses keep your beverages hot or cold for longer, and look awesome while doing it. If you want to give them a try, Amazon’s selling 2-packs of 12 ounce tumblers for $16 right now, or a pair of 15 oz. models for $20, both of which are about as low as they get these days. Cheers to that!
With rumors running rampant about the Ecobee4 smart thermostat, the Ecobee3 is starting to see its most significant discounts ever. It was already marked down from $250 to $200 for the month of April, but now Amazon’s increased the discount to $186.
I’ve sworn by the Dove White bar soap since I was young (who says millennials hate bar soap??) and their cucumber body wash is also pretty great. Right now, use the code DOVE20 at Jet.com and get 20% off any Dove purchase. I highly recommend stocking up with these prices.
A good step stool is something everyone should own, and this highly-rated model from Kikkerland can hold up to 300 pounds, then fold up to nearly nothing when you’re done using it. Today’s $9 deal on the white model is match for an all-time low, and $1-$2 cheaper than the other colors.
Making your own popcorn is cheaper than buying microwave packs, and allows you to customize the flavoring to your liking. If you don’t have the patience to wait for your stovetop to heat up, this microwave cooker gets the job done in just a couple of minutes. Get it with Prime shipping, and you’ll have it in time for a weekend movie night.
All you have to do is add two to your cart, and use that code to save $11. If you aren’t familiar, these stick anywhere via an included adhesive magnetic strip, and sense both ambient light and motion to turn on when you need them, and save power when you don’t.
Just note that this model runs on AAA batteries, so we recommend picking up some rechargeables if you don’t already have them.
We see a lot of deals on solar-powered motion-sensing outdoor spotlights, but I don’t think we’ve ever seen a 2-pack for under $10. This isn’t a brand we post very often, but it seems basically identical to similar lights we’ve seen.
Vantrue’s popular dash cams are back on sale, and this time around, you get to choose from three different models.
The ever-popular Vantrue N1 includes esessential features like 1080p recording, motion-detecting parking mode, and a G-sensor to save your data after a collision, and $53 is the best price we’ve ever seen.
For $27 more, you can upgrade to the Vantrue X1, which features a wider field of view (170 degrees vs. 153) and a larger LCD display.
Or you can splurge on the Vantrue X2 for $106, which gets you either 1080p/60 recording (giving you twice as many frames to get a clear shot of someone’s license plate), or 2560x1440 recording at 30 FPS.
Sometimes, a normal water bottle just isn’t enough. This vacuum-insulated vessel from RTIC holds 64 ounces of your favorite fluid, be it water, coffee, or beer from your local tap house, and keeps it cold for up to 24 hours, or hot for six.
I own RTIC can koozies and a tumbler, and their temperature regulation is nothing short of magical, so the bigger the better, as far as I’m concerned. $18 is within $1 of an all-time low price, so grab yours before this deal runs dry.
You all have undoubtedly seen (and probably purchased) these magnetic smartphone vent mounts by now, but why buy a 2-pack? My advice: Keep one in your car, and one in your luggage, because these are awesome for rental cars, and also work as handy phone stands on airplane tray tables if you want to watch a movie.
Top Lifestyle Deals
Let your feet breathe a little and escape from the boots you’ve been wearing for the winter. Amazon is having a one-day sale on Skechers, which means you can pick up basically any style of sneaker or casual slip-on that you’d ever need, for both men and women. It’s a really good excuse to take your shoes off, if you ask me.
$236 might seem like a lot to spend on a set of dumbbells, but these Bowflex adjustable models take up way less room than a full rack of weights, and certainly cost less over time than a gym membership.
These 4.7 star rated weights were on sale for an all-time low $229 over the weekend, but sold out relatively quickly. So if you missed out, this is still a great price.
I’m just going to kick off this post by sharing this product’s Amazon description.
ARE YOU A HAIRY APE?
No problem. Guys feel confident shirtless after using OXA Back Shaver. So, if you have “patchy” or “spotty” patches of hair on your back or body or if you are so hairy that you are often mistaken for being a “hairy ape” there is no job too great for the OXA Back Shaver.
I don’t think back hair is why most men feel uncomfortable shirtless, but I digress.
This product looks very similar to the BaKlade, which we’ve written about before. It doesn’t have many reviews to go off of, but it’s 1/3 the price of the name brand with promo code XCVGCZG9 so it might be worth checking out if you’re a HAIRY APE.
Another Gizmodo Media Group staff member (who shall remain nameless, but speculate away) bought this earlier in the month, and reports that it “does the job.”
Dorco continues shaving the prices on their already-affordable razors, and you can get a Pace 6 Plus handle plus 10 cartridges for $13, plus free shipping. Just be sure to use promo code KINJA419 at checkout to get the deal.
Amazon’s back at it again with the sample box deals, and this time, $10 gets you six sample-sized (i.e. airline-friendly) men’s grooming items, plus a $10 credit towards dozens of full-sized items from this list. Assuming you use the credit, that’s like getting all of the samples for free.
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 $12, you can grab a 3-piece garment bag set, plus a shoe bag, with the code UHD6UD4Q.
The Bouqs is probably the best place to use when sending flowers right now. The bouquets are unique and the blooms are harvested from the side of a freakin’ volcano. And right now, save 30% on select Mother’s Day blooms (without the vase), and forget about the whole ordering flowers last minutes thing. Use the code MOM30 at checkout to save.
FYI: The promo is only valid for new customers, and only works if you set your delivery date between 5/9 and 5/11 and if you don’t add a vase.
This $20 shiatsu massage pillow includes four rotating massage nodes and infrared heating to knead your aching muscles. It even comes with a car adapter to ease tension during long road trips, or just on your commute home after a tough day in the office.
This $14 OXA canvas backpack will protect your laptop, but won’t make you look like a large child. With nine pockets, including an inner laptop compartment, it’ll make your commute that much easier.
There must be something in the air, because J.Crew Factory has had major discounts lately. Use the code SUGARRUSH and take an extra 50% off all clearance items, plus free shipping, which is insane seeing as practically everything is already marked down under $100. Maybe hold off on spring cleaning until after this sale is over.
Amazon’s back at it again with the sample box deals. This time around, $10 gets you 8+ protein products, plus a $10 credit on your next protein purchase from Amazon. If you were going to buy any of these products anyway, then this is a no-brainer.
