Anker’s PowerPort line is your favorite brand of USB charging hubs, and while the 10-port model might be overkill for most people, it might be worth considering at an all-time low $28 with promo code BEST2133. Personally, I could see installing this between several office desks as a shared charging hub.
DJI’s Mavic Pro quadcopter packs intelligent flight features and an amazing camera into an incredibly portable package, and BuyDig is throwing in a $50 Visa gift card, a 1-year extended warranty, and some other bonus accessories for free when you buy one today. That’s one of the best (and only) deals we’ve seen on the Mavic, which you were lucky to find in stock until recently, let alone with all of these bonuses.
Vizio’s 2016 M-series TVs include basically every feature you could possibly want, including 4K resolution, Dolby Vision HDR (the good one), Google Cast, local dimming, and even a tablet remote. Do I have your attention? The 50" model is on sale for just $489 right now, the best price we’ve ever seen.
$25 for a four-port HDMI switcher would be a bargain on its own—most TVs simply don’t have enough HDMI ports for the number of devices people own—but the fact that this model includes picture-in-picture support really makes it stand out. That means you can see content from all of your streaming boxes, Blu-ray players, and game consoles at the same time.
Powerline kits and Wi-Fi range extenders are two of the most popular ways to fill in the gaps in your home network, and TRENDnet combined both products into one.
All you have to do is connect one of the included adapters to your router and plug it into the wall, then plug the other adapter into an AC outlet where your Wi-Fi coverage is lacking. That part of the kit includes two ethernet ports to connect wired devices, and it will also act as a tiny 802.11n router for everything else.
It probably won’t be as fast as a dedicated mesh networking system, and it obviously won’t be as reliable as running a new Cat5 line behind your drywall, but it’s cheap at $40, and only takes a few minutes to set up.
The past year or so has seen a welcome deluge of Wi-Fi router innovation, and Portal seems to be one of the best newcomers in the space, particularly for smaller dwellings in congested, urban environments.
Portal includes app-based configuration, nine internal antennas, and mesh capabilities if you buy more than one...table stakes these days for a good router. But while almost all home Wi-Fi routers limit you to a small number of public channels over 5GHz, Portal also opens up four “DFS” channels that are typically reserved for military use and commercial radar.
The law allows home routers to use these DFS channels, but they must shift off of them for a set amount of time whenever they detect active radar to avoid interference. Portal does just this, and moves all of your devices off of the busy channel in the background automatically, and shifts them back on when it’s safe. That means that most of the time, these channels are practically empty, so you won’t have to worry about interference from your neighbors’ Wi-Fi networks. This Digital Trends review has a thorough explanation of the technology, if you’re curious.
Portal retails for $200, and has sold for around $150 for the last few months, but for a limited time, you can try it out for $126 with promo code KINJAWIN. I bought this thing earlier this year, and absolutely love it.
Amazon usually sells certified refurbished Echo Dots for $5 less than new models, but for now at least, that discount has increased to $12. Refurbished Dots still carry the same warranty as new ones, so there’s really no downside to going this route if you want to sprinkle these around your home on a budget.
We’ve featured deals on Bluetooth receivers, and deals on Bluetooth transmitters, but this little gadget is actually both. So on the one hand, you could plug it into an old MP3 player or TV to add wireless transmitting capabilities, and then with a flick of a switch, plug it into your car’s AUX jack, a pair of headphones, or an old iHome to add Bluetooth receiving. Very versatile!
Ringke’s running another massive $4 phone case sale, and you can find all of the deals here.
For a limited time, you can grab the PowerCore II 20000 for $34, the best price we’ve ever seen. In addition to a fresh new design, the PowerCore II includes three high speed USB charging ports with a whopping 30W shared between them, plus dual 10W microUSB inputs, allowing you to recharge the entire brick twice as quickly.
We own so many mobile devices now, it only makes sense for surge protectors and power strips to include USB ports in addition to AC outlets. This $19 charger from iClever includes six of each, so you should never be short a place to plug in.
We know you guys like Velcro cable ties, but if you’re interested in a different option for keeping your wires organized, these neoprene zip-up sleeves are another great option. $11 gets you four 20" sleeves, each of which includes a buckle that allows you to attach them together.
It’s officially beach season, and if you want to keep your phones protected from the surf and sand, you can get a two-pack of Mpow dry bags for just $7 today with promo code F75VF8GY.
You don’t need to sell a kidney to afford noise-cancelling Bluetooth earbuds; these 4 star-rated Cowin E-7s are just $39 right now, or $31 off with promo code K8WP23JH.
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.

If you haven’t replaced your metal spring mattress with a giant block of foam that you bought on the internet, what are you even doing with your life? Today only, Amazon’s marking PuraSleep 1o” foam mattresses down to just $275-$500, with queens checking in at $375.
A lot of complaints with memory foam is how much it retains heat, but this one from PuraSleep has a gel-enhanced layer that promotes easy sleep and removes heat from the body.
The third generation Philips Hue starter kit’s bulbs have more vivid greens and blues, but otherwise, the “old” second generation set is basically identical. $122 gets you three bulbs and a Siri-compatible Bridge today, which is pretty great considering three individual bulbs would set you back $135, without a bridge.
Update: If you missed out last Friday, this is now back in stock.
If you want a Big Green Egg charcoal grill, but don’t want to cash in your 401(k) to buy one, this Char-Griller alternative is down to $262 for Prime members today. That’s the lowest price in months, and a great investment for meat lovers everywhere.
The Char-Griller Akorn Kamado Kooker features a 306 square inch cast iron cooking surface (which is most similar to the $829 large Big Green Egg), and traps heat inside a heavily-insulated stainless steel body. Our deal researcher, Corey, owns a BGE, and I asked him about it on Slack:
And I use my BGE for about 70% of meat meals.
Probably 90% during the warm months.
Best Father’s Day gift I’ll ever get.
Lana jokes that she’s the one who benefits most because I cook on it all the time.
Worth the price just for its ability to cook pizza, IMO.
But pork chops, lions, tenderloin are beyond incredible on it.
Obviously, this isn’t the “real thing,” but the consensus among Amazon reviewers is that it’s at least nearly as good, which sounds like a decent compromise considering it’s less than 1/3 of the price, and comes with a stable cart and folding shelves, both of which you’d need to buy separately with the Egg.
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.
Growing your own herbs and vegetables can be a cathartic experience, but it doesn’t have to be a difficult or expensive one. Amazon will ship you an easy-to-assemble garden bed kit for just $25 today. You’ll still have to supply the soil and seeds, but once you buy this, you might finally have the motivation to start planting.
You may not think you need one of these portable jump starters, and at this very moment, you probably don’t. But there will come a time where you’re late for an appointment or stuck in the middle of nowhere, and waiting around for a good samaritan to come jump your battery just isn’t a viable option.
This model from iClever puts out a whopping 600A, which is far more than most similar products, and enough to start just about any car.
You might not realize that Amazon runs a photo printing service,but they’re getting the word out today with 50 free 4x6 prints of your choice with promo code 50FREE. The only catch? You’ll need to be an Amazon Cloud Drive or Amazon Photos customer—the latter is free for Prime members—to upload the photos you want to the service prior to selecting your prints.
If your spring cleaning doesn’t involve revamping your home goods, what are you even doing? Add some awesome infographics to your walls with Pop Chart Lab’s 25% off sitewide sale. Get everything from the Connected Characters of Seinfeld to every single bird in North America. Enter the code KINJAPOP at checkout to see your discount.
Add even more pop art to your life with some housewares, like pint glasses, tote bags, and more at a discount. Not only are they already marked down 20-50% off, the sitewide 25% off works on them as well.
And if you need an attractive and easy way to hang your new posters, the 20% also works on poster rails.
At $82 (with promo code 5Z7N427L), this is the most affordable sous-vide circulator we’ve ever seen. And while it doesn’t come from a brand you’ve heard of like Anova or Instant Pot, it does seem to have some pretty solid reviews.
If you aren’t familiar with sous-vide, Lifehacker has a great explainer of the process here. Spoiler alert: it’s incredible easy, and the results are perfect every time.
While supplies last, Amazon will sell you a 10.5"pan for $14, within a penny of its all-time low price. Not bad considering it should last the rest of your life, as long as you take good care of it.
If you’ve ever spent more than 5 seconds sorting through your mismatched food containers to find the right lid, it’s time to throw them all out and upgrade to the uber-popular Rubbermaid Easy Find Lid system.
These containers come in six different sizes, and yet you only have to deal with three different lids, making it much easier to find the right one. The 42 piece set is on sale for $20 today on Amazon. We’ve seen better prices in the past, but this set has been selling for around $24 pretty consistently this year, so you’re saving about $4.
Sugru is right up there with binder clips and the Raspberry Pi in Lifehacker’s pantheon of must-have gear, and you can stock up today with eight multicolor packs from Amazon for just $13, the best price we’ve seen so far this year.
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, two different mounting options, and capacitors that are rated to work in temperatures from -4°F to 149°F.
If your tires are about due for a replacement, Discount Tire Direct is offering up to $100 in Visa gift card rebates (in addition to any manufacturer rebates) when you order four new tires, plus an additional $100 if you order wheels as well, plus an extra $60 on each if you use a Discount Tire credit card. Just enter your make and model, click the options to see tires on promotion, and you’ll see the rebate amount (either $25, $75, or $100) on the right hand side.

All of the cars are constructed with solid beech wood, and sit on real rubber ties and metal axles for easy rolling. Their aesthetic is vintage and a little cartoonish, rather than detailed and realistic, so they won’t be for every collector, but I’m personally a huge fan.
Life Is Strange is getting a sequel, so if you missed out on the first season, Amazon will sell you a Steam key for $7 today, or about $13 less than usual. I want to rewind my life and play it again for the first time.
What better way to celebrate one of the greatest games ever than with a gorgeous, full-color hardcover game guide? The official collector’s edition guide for Breath of the Wild includes a map poster, a 16-page art section, and yes, even a guide for getting through the game.
$24 is a match for the lowest price Amazon’s listed, and the same amount you would have paid if you preordered.
Mini Metro was my favorite game of the year, and the iOS version is on sale for just $1 today, down from its usual $5. I promise it will be the best dollar you spend today.
Humble’s Indie Bundle 18 is still going strong, but they’re piling onto your Steam backlog with the launch of the Humble GameOn Bundle, which includes the likes of Grim Fandango Remastered, Her Story, The Stanley Parable, and even Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, just for starters.
