Anker, purveyor of your favorite battery packs, charging cables, and Bluetooth speakers, also makes some advanced LED desk lamps, and a pair of them are on sale today.

The standard Lumos lamp includes four different lighting temperatures for different times of the day, as well as five dimming modes, and even a USB charging port for your phone. We see a lot of deals on desk lamps, and $34 is a fantastic price for that feature set.

If you need a little extra motivation to start exercising, Amazon’s offering great prices on several Saucony running shoes for men and women, today only.

Jackery Bolt, $20 with code BOLT0412 | Jackery Titan, $36 with code JKTITANS
Advertisement

Jackery, despite the silly name, makes many popular and well-reviewed USB battery packs, and their two newest models just got solid launch discounts.

The Jackery Bolt (pictured above) is a little expensive at $20 for 6,000mAh, but it includes a built-in Lightning and microUSB cable, so you won’t have to worry about carrying a spare. If you’re the forgetful type, that’s well worth the price premium.

Meanwhile, the aptly named Jackery Titan is built around 20,100mAh of capacity, and includes both Quick Charge 2.0 and a USB-C port for charging the latest phones and laptops at full speed. It doesn’t include built in cables like the Bolt, but at $36, it’s priced very competitively.

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

Update: Whoops, seems like this deal is invite only, so you may or may not be eligible to purchase it.

If buying a movie ticket in your town on Fandango costs more than $8 (including Fandango’s convenience fee), you stand to save money with this deal from Groupon.

Unfortunately it isn’t a Blu-ray, but the complete Futurama box set has never been this cheap before. It’s a Gold Box deal though, so grab it quick before it sells out.

The Azores are a set of nine volcanic islands in the North Atlantic. Given that I’m currently visiting them myself, I couldn’t resist covering this deal from Travelzoo.

$899/person gets you six nights in a 4-star hotel, breakfast, whale watching, and multiple guided tours.

This trip goes to the Sao Miguel, the largest island, but for a bit more you can add two or three more islands to the itinerary, which is definitely worth it.

Thermal pools, picturesque vistas, great seafood, and meat cooked for seven hours in thermal vents await.

Newegg’s back at it again with the special PS4 eBay bundles, and this time around you can get a PS4 Battlefront bundle along with copies of Dark Souls III and Fallout 4 for $389. True, that’s $39 more than you’d pay for the Battlefront bundle alone, but you’d probably expect to pay about $100 for the two extra games, so if you want them both, it’s a very solid discount.

If you hurry, Amazon’s selling your undisputed favorite travel mug, the Contigo Autoseal West Loop, for as little as $13, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen, and a solid discount from its usual $18-$20. Just be sure to grab one before the deal cools off.

Refurb Nikon D3300, $309 with code 5HPX

Nikon’s D3300 is one of the easiest entry level DSLRs to get started with if you want to learn the basics of photography, and BuyDig will sell you a refurb with a kit lens today for just $309 with promo code 5HPX.

For comparison’s sake, Amazon’s currently selling this for $447 new, and it carries a 4.8 star review average from over 750 customers.

Whether you’re starting your Philips Hue collection, or just need some extra bulbs, you won’t find a better deal today than this three-bulb starter kit for $135 on Amazon. Even if you already have a Bridge, this would represent a solid discount on the bulbs, which normally sell for $60 each.

Note: This is the first generation starter kit, which features dimmer bulbs compared to the current model, and a bridge that isn’t compatible with Apple HomeKit.

The compact Ninja Master Prep is one of the more versatile kitchen gadgets you can own, and it’s down to $30 today on Amazon, within $3 of its all-time low.

Want to mix up a frozen smoothie? Chop some onions? Puree a few tomatoes? The Ninja is designed for all of that, and includes two different-sized jars and blade sets to handle your disparate kitchen duties. You can’t say that about most blenders.

Despite the low price, the Ninja has a stellar 4.5 star review average on Amazon, which would be impressive for any inexpensive blender, let alone one as versatile as this.

If the power at your house can be a little spotty, this $20 APC backup UPS is designed specifically to keep your modem and router running for up to three hours on battery power, so you won’t have to lose touch with the world.

For $5 more, you can also get a version with USB ports for your mobile devices.

You probably spend at least a few hours a day in front of a keyboard, so you really should give mechanical key switches a try.

This Monoprice full-sized mechanical keyboard features versatile red switches, and is marked down to $40 today. That’s one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on any mechanical keyboard, and hovering near impulse purchase territory, if you still haven’t experienced one for yourself.

If you have any old SSDs or hard drives lying around, you can plug them into this docking station to access the contents over USB. If this is going to be a permanent fixture on your desk, it might even be worth buying an SSD just for it, to create an ultra-fast external drive.

If you still haven’t watched Firefly, or just want to own a physical copy for posterity, the complete Blu-ray is back down to $15, the best price of the year. Shiny!

1byone HDTV Antenna, $10 with code 4QMW7W2G
Advertisement

If you want to try pulling in local HDTV channels over the air, this omni-directional antenna will only set you back $10. It’s unamplified, so you’ll need to live pretty close to the transmitters, but if you, this is a fantastic price.

UtechSmart MMO Gaming Mouse, $34 with code 8P9DJ38L
Advertisement

This UtechSmart gaming mouse is perfect for MMO players (or even for general computing tasks), and you can pick it up from Amazon for just $34 today. That’s still a decent chunk of change, but it gets you a 16,400 DPI sensor, Omron switches, dynamic backlighting, and 18 programmable side buttons.

Cuisinart’s 3-in-1 Griddler is one of the most versatile kitchen appliances you can own, and you can score a refurb on eBay today for just $50.

Aukey has a penchant for making battery packs with features you didn’t realize you needed, and this 12,000mAh pack is no exception.

In addition to the requisite dual charging ports and built-in flashlight, the entire top surface of the battery pack is covered with a solar panel. Obviously, a panel that size isn’t going to charge a 12,000mAh battery very quickly, but it’s great for emergencies or camping trips where you just need to eke out a little more juice.

This Xbox One deal doesn’t come with any extra games or controllers; you just get the standard Quantum Break white Xbox One bundle at a $70 discount. With that extra cash, you can buy whatever extras you want.


RAVPower 50W 6-Port USB Charger, $12 with code VXMOQ74S
Advertisement

If you don’t already have a multi-port USB charger plugged in everywhere you spend a significant amount of time, there’s nothing stopping you today. Just use promo code VXMOQ74S at checkout to knock this 6-port model down to $12.

Note: The code only applies to the white model.


Aukey 3-in-1 Lens Kit, $10 with code 4AALJXW4

Unlike smartphone lens add-ons that require a special case or a specific phone model, Aukey’s 3-in-1 kit uses a clamp to attach to your device, which means it should work with virtually any smartphone. Once that clip’s in place, you get to choose from three different lenses: Fisheye, wide angle, and macro. Several of Amazon reviewers have uploaded sample photos and videos, and they look pretty great to my eyes, particularly the close-up macros.

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 $18, you probably should buy it just in case.
