Top Deals

If you want to experience Google Cardboard VR without strapping a shipping box to your face, this plastic headset is a slightly upscale alternative for most Android handsets and iPhones, and it can be yours for just $22 today as part of a Gold Box deal.

The major caveat here is that it lacks a button to interact with the phone while it’s inside, but for watching 360 videos or looking around 3D scenes, it should be just fine. You could also buy a cheap Bluetooth remote like this one to function as the Cardboard button.

If you want a similar product with a button built in, this View-Master VR headset is also marked down to $18, though you’ll have to hold it to your face, since it doesn’t include a head strap.

Decen French Press Coffee Maker, $14 with code VID2IO58

If you can’t start your day without a morning cup of coffee, but you’re still using an electric drip coffee maker, or even (gasp) a Keurig, you might want to try out a flavor-extracting french press. This inexpensive model looks nearly identical to the excellent Bodum Chambord, but is significantly cheaper at $14 with code VID2IO58.

If you’re not convinced, know that french press took the #1 spot in Lifehacker’s coffee-making Hive Five, and many coffee aficionados swear by it. And with no disposable filters or pods to buy, this machine could pay for itself over time.

Today’s Amazon deal is the best price we’ve ever seen this model, but we don’t know how long it will last, so perk up and lock in your order while you can.

If you have a closet with at least one 4'-8' wall, this Rubbermaid custom shelving kit will add a ton of extra storage space. The configuration is totally up to you, so you can add more shelves, hanging rods, or any combination thereof. Today’s $84 deal on Amazon is within a few bucks of an all-time low, so be sure to lock in your order before it sells out.

In case you missed out last week, you can once again snag an extra year of PlayStation Plus for $40. I know it seems like we’re seeing this deal every week right now, but these gift card deals tend to be feast or famine; it wouldn’t surprise me a bit if the deal disappeared for three months.

You don’t need a yard, or even any gardening skills to grow your own food at home; you just need Miracle-Gro’s Aerogarden line. These fully-integrated, soil-free indoor gardens can grow herbs, vegetables, and salad greens up to five times faster than regular soil, and you can choose from two great deals today.

The smaller Sprout Plus LED model is marked down to $70, and can grow up to three pods at once, while the larger Harvest can accommodate six pods for just $30 more. Both come with a starter pack of pods to get started, but Amazon has a ton of extra options on sale to fit your tastes.

Simplehuman dominated the nominations in our recent kitchen trash cans Kinja Co-Op, and Amazon’s running rare discounts on several different models today, plus a handful of soap dispensers and kitchen accessories to match.

Simplehuman sales are pretty rare, so if you’ve had one of these on your wishlist, I wouldn’t hesistate.

It isn’t the fastest or most powerful router on the market, but if you’re on the hunt for an 802.11ac router, and you’re on a budget, this well-reviewed TP-Link model is marked down to $50 today on Amazon. That’s about $20 less than normal, an all-time low, and one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on a reputable 802.11ac router.

They’re extremely versatile and come in a variety of colors, and today several models are marked down to the $30 range, plus an additional 20% off with code WEEKENDER.

The Moto X Pure “does Android better than Google,” and Amazon is taking $50 off at checkout on every model they sell today.

While the discount is valid for all colors and capacities, your best bet is the 32GB white/bamboo model, which is listed at $50 off before the additional savings at checkout. The resulting $325 final price is the best we’ve ever seen on a 32GB Moto X Pure, which is particularly notable since the bamboo model usually carries a $25 price premium.

Want to pick up a new hobby? It’s easy to get into stargazing with today’s Gold Box deal. Inside, you’ll find several Celstron telescopes and a pair of binoculars marked down to all-time low prices. The telescopes even feature integrated computers with over 40,000 pre-programmed celestial objects for easy, automatic alignment and tracking.

Want some inspiration? Go check out the amateur astrophotography subreddit.

Here’s a note from our deal researcher, Corey:

I own both the Skymaster binoculars and the Nexstar 8 SE featured today. If you’ve ever stopped for even a moment to look up at the stars in wonder, you owe it to yourself to buy these binoculars, grab a blanket, and lie on your back stargazing for a few hours. And while the 8 SE takes some dedication and spend (though this is $100 cheaper than I’ve ever seen it,) it’s well worth it for any hobbyist (or wannabe) astronomer.

Sony’s MDRV6 Studio Monitor Headphones are some of the oldest (24 years old!) still-relevant headphones on the market, and have always been one of the best values in the space. Their step-up model, the Sony MDR7506 Professional Large Diaphragm Headphone, were the runner-up for Best Headphones on Kinja Co-Op and a contender on Lifehacker’s 2012 Hive Five.

If you’re in the market, Amazon’s marked the MDRV6 down to $79 today. That’s not an all-time low price by any means, but it is the best price we’ve seen in 2016.

This $85 shelving system arrives fully assembled, and can even collapse for easy transport. I’m not sure why you’d need to regularly move shelves from place to place, but regardless, this looks great for a garage or shed.

ExOfficio’s Give-N-Go boxer briefs were a finalist in our recent best men’s underwear Co-Op, and $14-$15 is one of the best deals we’ve seen on them. That’s still pricey for a single pair of underwear, but reviewers say it’s worth it.

Note: I’m seeing the price on black and white, so if your size is out of stock in one color, check the other.

We see deals on car-starting battery packs just about every week, but even by our standards, $27 is a really fantastic starting price (with code TA9A92XK) for a 300A model. And for owners of larger cars, 400A and 600A versions are also on sale. No matter which one you choose, they all include a DC charger to juice it back up inside your car, and they’re all small enough to fit in your glove box.

If you enjoy red wine, today’s deal is the best price Amazon’s ever offered, so treat yourself.

We’re probably never going to get another A Song of Ice and Fire book, so you might as well invest in a collectible set of the first five. This collection is leather-bound, comes in its own box, and will look great on any shelf. It’s been cheaper before, but this is the best deal Amazon’s listed in a few months.

We’ve seen our fair share of sub-$20 Bluetooth speakers, but not many of them can join you in the shower. The Omaker M4 can do just that thanks to its IP54-rated splash resistance, and still deliver up to 12 hours of playtime on a single charge. That’s perfect if you like to sing in the shower, or just need to catch up on your podcast backlog.
