Whether you’re a man or woman, runner or tennis player, #TeamNoShow or #TeamKneeHigh, there’s a pair or socks with your name on it in today’s Amazon Gold Box.

Inside, you’ll find options from Under Armour, Asics, and Vitalsox for any athletic or casual occasion, all marked down to great low prices. Just note that this is a Gold Box deal, meaning these prices are only available today, or until sold out.

Amazon’s Gold Box deal on the Mizuno Wave Rider 19 Running Shoe is an absolute steal. You could grab a pair of highly-rated running shoes for a fraction of the regular price, with some styles marked as low as $50. Both the women’s and men’s styles are on sale, and they each come in a few different colorways.

Note: prices change depending on shoe size and color.

Update: Dell has jacked the price up to $350, which is actually still a solid deal, but obviously not quite as compelling.

Now that the PS4 Slim is finally out, retailers are clearing out their old inventory with some of the best deals we’ve seen on the rarely-discounted system.

We’ve seen a few modest dealss over the past few weeks, but Dell just raised the bar with a Black Ops III console, copy of NBA 2K17 and a $75 promo gift card (which you could spend on an extra controller or game) for $300. Just be sure you see the gift card in your cart before checkouts, as Dell has been known to pull those promotions without warning.


iQunix Edin Laptop Stand, $34 with code 82M4UZOY

The market is littered with beautiful, minimal laptop stands from accessory design shops, but no matter how much you love yours, there’s no guarantee that your next laptop will fit properly. That’s where the iQunix Edin comes in.

At first blush, the Eden looks like any other aluminum, Apple-centric laptop stand. But its secret is a knob that adjusts the dock’s width, meaning no matter what laptop you happen to own at the moment (as long as it’s between 0.4 and 1.18 inches thick), it’ll fit like a glove. For a limited time, you can save $6 on yours with promo code 82M4UZOY.

Little Giant Ladders are some of the most popular on the market, and you can get a refurbished 17' model with a wall rack for for $140 on Little Giant’s official eBay store today.

You’ll lose out on features like the the Phantom 4's (finicky) accident avoidance, but the camera is still 4K, and it’ll last over 20 minutes on a single charge. Just use promo code AERIALPRO at checkout to get the whole bundle for $899.


Refurb Dyson DC65, $228

Dyson’s DC65 was your favorite vacuum cleaner in our Kinja Co-Op voting, and Amazon will sell you a refurb today for $228, or about $200 less than buying it new.

Here’s what some actual Kinja users had to say.

Sure, it comes with a hefty price tag, but it certainly does not disappoint in any aspect. I vacuumed my apartment with one of the newer Shark Navigator models, and then immediately revacuumed it with this Dyson, and it was amazing what additional dirt/dust/pet hair/stuff it picked up. The “complete” model comes with an tool that makes vacuuming pet hair, and anything really, off of furniture super easy. That tool alone attached to the hose is more powerful than any other full-sized vacuum I’ve ever used. It was undoubtedly money well spent. - stcmd

I’m a frugal person who would normally think that spending $500 on a vaccuum is total insanity... but then I got a Dyson “Animal.” At the time I bought it, we had two dogs, two cats, and wall-to-wall carpeting. The improvement over every other vaccuum we had ever purchased was astounding. That was 8 or 9 years ago, and it still works great... - GG

Unlike this week’s earlier gadget repair kit deal, this 54-bit screwdriver kit doesn’t include a suction cup or spudgers, so it’s not ideal for smartphones. That said, it includes just about every bit you could ever need for most laptop repairs, and also a detachable snake attachment for use in tight corners.

This seemingly basic remote might not look like much at first blush, but it can actually control eight of your favorite home theater devices, and even turn your smartphone into a universal remote as well.

You’re probably used to seeing Logitech Harmony remotes with screens built-in, but it turns out that you already carry a much better screen in your pocket. So in addition to controlling your TV, cable box, game console, stereo, and more from the remote itself, the Logitech Harmony Smart Control can now do the same from your iPhone or Android from anywhere in the house. That’s especially handy when your favorite show is about to start and you can’t find the remote anywhere.

It’s also available for the same price on eBay, if Amazon sells out.

SSDs are obviously great upgrades for PCs with spinning hard drives, but it’s also really easy and affordable to turn one into a high performance external drive. Whatever your plans are, Crucial’s MX300 525GB and 275GB SSDs are both marked down to all-time low prices today.

Erligpowht Flexible Tripod, $4 with code ADJ758YT

If there’s one thing I’ve learned while traveling, it’s that you can’t trust random passerbys to take good photos of you and your companions. Hell, you usually can’t trust them to know what button to push on the camera.

But with a flexible tripod like this, you can frame the shot and change your camera settings by yourself, and maybe even get a vacation photo worth framing. At a ridiculously low $4, it even includes a smartphone holder and a Bluetooth shutter remote.

It’s not unusual to see deals on one or two unlocked smartphones on any given day, but Amazon’s breaking the mold right now with a 48 hour sales event on nearly a dozen different phones.

The best of the bunch here is probably the excellent ASUS Zenfone 2 for $200, down from $300. That’s an incredible deal for a phone with 4GB of RAM and a 5.5" IPS display. For $100 more, you can opt for the Zenfone Zoom, which amazingly includes a true 3x optical camera zoom.

You don’t need it for another few months, but you can save on a holiday landscape laser light by buying it early.

If you aren’t familiar, these genius little gadgets use lasers to project green Christmas trees and red “stars” onto the front of your house, giving the appearance of holiday spirit without the hassle of actually hanging up outdoor lights. Last year was the first time they were widely available, but they were almost impossible to find, and consistently cost $40-$50. So yes, this deal is a bit ahead of schedule, but it never hurts to plan ahead.
