If you use a desktop computer at home, you’d be foolish not to connect it to a UPS battery backup, and a great entry level model from CyberPower is on sale, today only from Amazon

This CyberPower UPS will of course keep your machine running without any interruption in the event of a power outage, which means you won’t lose any unsaved work. But even if you only use laptops and mobile devices at home, this could still run LED lights, phone chargers, or even your router and modem for a few hours until the power is restored.

Just note that this is a Gold Box deal, meaning this price is only available today, or until sold out.

All-Clad skillets are among the most popular pieces of cookware we’ve ever posted, and Amazon’s marked the 12" tri-ply down to its lowest price ever.

This skillet features a durable stainless steel cooking surface, an even and rapid-heating aluminum core, and a beautiful stainless exterior, all sandwiched together to create the ultimate pan. And, like all All-Clad items, it comes with a lifetime warranty, though you probably won’t need it as long as you treat it well.

The major caveat here is that this particular item doesn’t include a lid. The version that includes the lid is currently selling for $120, but it occasionally dips below $100. If you don’t typically use a lid with your skillets though, a set of cheap universal ones should suffice.

If you’re not a fan of your current comforter, or if you just want a backup for when it’s getting dry cleaned, Amazon will sell you a reversible down alternative comforter for just $18-$24, today only.

These comforters come backed by a 4.3 star review average, and you can choose from over a dozen colors, many of which are reversible. Just note that this is a Gold Box deal, meaning this price is only available today, or until sold out.

Not ready to lease your wrist to Apple or Google? Amazon is offering big discounts on dozens of fashionable (but “dumb”) watches for men and women, today only.

If you tend to crash and burn when making baked goods, this smartphone-connected scale can walk you through the process step by step. Just connect your phone or tablet to the kitchen scale, pick your recipe from the free app, and start following instructions. The app will tell you what to add, when to add it, and how much you need; all you need to do is pop the results in the oven, and make sure you get it out at the right time.

Kylo Ren’s Disney Infinity figurine is pretty damn adorable by world-destroying psychopath standards, and Amazon’s knocking $5 off the preorder price today.

When your DualShock 4 runs low on battery, you could plug it into a raggedy old microUSB cable like a caveman, or you could set it on this elegant dual charging dock. At $15, the choice is clear.

For a limited time, Amazon will sell you 12 packs of Orbit gum for just $9, after applying a 20% coupon at checkout. Of course, you get your peppermint and your speamint, but the box also includes a couple packs of oft-overlooked wintermint and sweet mint (which is two words, by the way), you know, for special occasions.

If you can’t live without your Stacy’s pita chips—and I know I can’t—Amazon’s currently taking an extra $3 off 24-packs of single serve bags. I’ve been known to accidentally eat an entire family sized bag of these things before I even realize what I’m doing, so the fact that they come in 1.5 ounce single serve size is appealing.

The combo pack comes with 12 bags of Simply Naked, and six bags each of parmasean garlic & herb and cinnamon sugar. If you like the garlic and herb variety, you can opt for a straight shipment of 24 bags as well, for roughly the same price.

Note: Be sure to clip the coupon and use Subscribe & Save when you order; you’ll be able to cancel the subscription after your first delivery.

This vacuum is about as simple as they come. You won’t find any hoses, detachable hand vacs, or battery packs. That being said, I’ve owned it for years, and absolutely love it. Its suction power is great, I’ve never had to replace any belts, and it’s incredibly light and maneuverable. For a smallish home, you could do a lot worse for $55.

If you own a GoPro, or any other action cam that’s compatible with GoPro accessories, you can own every accessory you see in the image above for just $20. That’s less than $1 per piece, including critical gear like strap mounts, a floating bobber, and even a padded carrying case.

Everyone needs at least one good piece of checked luggage, and this 25" Samsonite spinner is a great deal at $70. For a point of comparison, that’s $39 less than Amazon’s current price, where it has a 4.3 star review average.

If you have any home improvement projects on the horizon, this discounted Lowe’s gift card is like $10 in your pocket. I suggest spending it on a six pack to consume while you operate power tools. [$100 Lowe’s Gift Card, $90]

The new DJI Phantom 4 sure looks impressive, but for $1000 less, you can pick up the still-completely-amazing Phantom 3 Standard today. You’ll lose out on features like the (finnicky) accident avoidance, indoor positioning, and 4K video, but the camera still boasts an impressive 2.7K resolution, and it’ll last over 20 minutes on a single charge. At $400, it probably won’t even eat up your entire tax refund.

If you have a yard, you need an edger. If you need an edger, you should buy a battery-operated electric one. And when you can pick one up for just $60, there’s really no reason not to.

$23 is a very good price for any 20,000mAh USB battery pack. But when you consider that this one includes Quick Charge 2.0 for your newer Android devices, it’s a no-brainer. Conservatively, you should get 4-5 phone charges out of this thing, making it perfect for sharing during a long flight or camping trip.

We all know that buying your own modem can save you money in the long run, and to that end, we’ve posted a lot of deals on the Motorola SB6141 over the last few years. Today though, this Linksys alternative is marked down to just $50, and might be worth a look.

On paper, it’s every bit the equal of the SB6141; it has the same number of upstream and downstream channels, and the same maximum speeds. Just check with your ISP to make sure it’s compatible before you purchase; most maintain lists on their websites.

Update: Some people are having trouble with the code, but here’s a similar product for the same price, no code needed.

If you ever drink red wine, there’s literally no reason not to buy an aerator. This model from Wuudi plugs right into the top of the bottle, and is cheaper than a lot of bottom shelf merlots.

If you’re looking to bring your older car into the modern age, this clip-on rear view mirror includes a dashcam on the backside, plus a rear view camera and an integrated screen to view it, all for just $58. We see lots of deals for dash cams, rear view cameras, and camera viewing screens, but I’ve never seen one product incorporate them all.

In my time as an obsessive shopper and dedicated deal hunter I’ve come to agree with Lifehacker: cheap clothes are [generally] too expensive. However, I’ve actually been quite happy with the various articles I’ve picked up for a song at J.Crew Factory over the years.

Well here’s a low-risk, no brainer deal to wrap up your afternoon. If you buy a “luxury beauty” sample for $1-$3, you’ll get the equivalent amount as an Amazon credit to spend on a future luxury beauty item. Your options here include balms, lotions, fragrances, and more, so head over to Amazon before the best samples sell out.

If you’re still listening to any of your TVs through their built-in speakers, here’s an easy fix for $70.

This Vizio Sound Stand pumps out up to 95 dB of crisp stereo sound, which needless to say is a lot louder than your TV’s build in speakers. Plus, you won’t even need to find a place to put it, because your TV sits right on top. This might not be ideal for for your main home theater setup (personally, we’d recommend this 5.1 channel Vizio system), but it’s a perfect little integrated system for your other TVs around the house.

Dorco, the best deal in razor blades, supplier of Dollar Shave Club, and the only company crazy enough to make a 7-blade razor, will sell you their take on the safety razor complete with a mirror and 30 blades for $19 today.

Update: Use code NXY5G488A to bring it down to $15 [h/t DerMitDemWolfTanzt]

Safety razors require more skill and patience, but will get you a better shave when used correctly. They’re also cheaper in the long run.

$8 is a solid price for any 3600mAh battery pack, but it’s especially noteworthy when the pack uses a Lightning input for all the Apple devotees out there. Obviously, this won’t appeal to Android users, but if you’re an Apple devotee, it means one less cord to carry around.

Cooking is all about temperatures, and both of these thermometer deals deserve a place in your utensil drawer. The Dr. Meter meat thermometer will let you know when your food is done, while the IR thermometer can tell you when a pan or oil is hot enough to start cooking. It’s also really fun to just mess around with.

We’ve all heard that watching TV in the dark can be pretty tough on the eyes, but an ambient bias lighting setup can make the experience much more palatable, and improve your TV’s perceived contrast levels to boot.

Bias Lighting deals sell out pretty much instantly when we post them, so be sure to jump on this one, which includes dimming and a Velcro securing system.

If you’re a weather buff, and want to know the precise conditions outside your house, this $35 AcuRite Weather Station can track temperature, humidity, air pressure and more via a wireless probe.

The folks at TravelZoo have a great deal going on Iceland trips, very similar to the one I took advantage of in 2015.

$600 gets you roundtrip air from Boston or Baltimore, air and hotel taxes covered, daily breakfast, and more. This is a 3-night trip, but you can extend for around $100/day, and you do not need more than 4-5 days at the most.

Advertisement

The package includes a trip out to see the Northern Lights, and other excursions in the country are relatively cheap.

The flight is short, everyone speaks English, and the country is very tourist-friendly. Feel free to hit me up with questions! - Shane

You’ll find Amazon “insets” across much of the content on our network. These modules provide readers with the name of an item, the price, and the retailer (we hope to support more in the future).

The full size insets also provide an image of the item and disclosure about potential for commissions.

Advertisement

The green text in the full size insets is “social proof”, a counter for how many of a product has been purchased through links on Gawker sites. This counter tracks all-time purchases, not purchases from a single post, and is delayed 24 hours.

We’ve recently added a promo code field to our insets, so Kinja Deals readers can now get everything they need to take advantage of a deal in one place.

Advertisement

Finally, you may have noticed in the past that the pricing in our insets could lag behind the current price on Amazon. We’ve made inset prices editable, so let us know if something’s wrong and we can fix it right away! This also means our insets will now take into account promo code discounts when displaying a price.
