Travelpro makes your favorite rolling carry-on bag, and nearly their entire Crew 10 line is on sale for all-time low prices today on Amazon. I have the 21" spinner, and while it doesn’t have GPS location tracking, it’s basically perfect in every other way.


Ready to experience meat in a whole new way? Amazon’s currently offering the Bluetooth model of Anova’s excellent Sous Vide immersion circulator for $129. That’s an all-time low by $10, and $30 less than the its most recent typical price. Sous Vide was already the easiest way to cook food perfectly, and this model makes it even simpler by putting every recipe you need on a mobile app.

Update: Sold out on Amazon, but still available for the same price from Anova directly.

Lifehacker has a great explainer on Sous-Vide cooking for you to check out, but the basic idea is that you seal the food in plastic bags, and then cook it in precisely heated water over a longer period of time. Here are some advantages to this process from Lifehacker’s guide:

  • Cooking sous-vide results in evenly-cooked meat and fish.
  • Cooking sous-vide gives you specific control over the final temperature of the meat, avoiding overdone, dried-out food.
  • You can hold foods cooked sous-vide at their specified temperature for long periods of time without damaging the texture or quality of the dish, making it an ideal cooking method for holiday dinners or meals with multiple components and side-dishes.
  • Bacterial or other contamination is largely not an issue with sous-vide cooking. While you may be cooking up to minimum safe temperatures, the length of time you’re holding the food at its safe temperature will pasteurize your meat and ensure the safety of your food, meaning “safe” meat doesn’t have to equal “dry” or “not pink” meat any longer. Still, keep your meat thermometer handy, and test before serving. Remember, sous-vide lets you hold food at temp for long periods without diminishing the quality of the food, so if it’s undercooked, you can seal the bag and put it back in.
  • Sous-vide cooking is by nature a repeatable process. Set the temperature, set the timer, and walk away. You will wind up with perfectly cooked food every time you do it.

Every time we post this, we get some snark about the Bluetooth, so just know that it’s optional. If you connect your phone, you can find a recipe via Anova’s app, and automatically program the cooker with one tap, but you certainly don’t need to use it.

The newer Bluetooth+Wi-Fi model is still on sale for $169, an all-time low, but the only difference there is the ability to control it away from home.


Anker PowerLine Lightning Cables, $8 with code BK3S7CNN

Anker’s kevlar-wrapped PowerLine Lightning cables are some of the most popular we’ve ever posted, and the standard 3' model is marked down to $8 today on Amazon, matching an all-time low.

I’ve collected several of these cables over the last few months, and while I haven’t used them long enough to know if they’re actually more durable, they definitely feel weighty and premium. Note that this deal is available on space grey, blue, and red.


I know some of you rail against the Bluetoothization of everything, but this smart carry-on bag has some really clever features.

  • TSA-approved Electronic lock that automatically locks when your phone is out of range
  • Built-in GPS location tracking, if your bag ever gets lost
  • USB battery pack to charge your phone
  • Built-in scale

Today’s $319 price tag is a lot of money, but it’s $80 less than usual, and an all-time low. If you travel frequently, it could be worth the investment.


Update: The price seems to be fluctuating now. As of this writing, it’s $18.

A few years ago, Call of Duty: Ghosts had a special edition that included a 1080p action camera, and they must not have sold many of them, because you can get the camera alone now for just $13. Is it a great action cam? No. But as you can see in this video, it’s not bad for $13.


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 a Keurig, you might want to try out a flavor-extracting french press. This 4.4 star-rated Bodum Chambord is one of the most popular models on the market, and it’s down to an all-time low price today on Amazon.

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 to buy (not to mention K-Cups), this $22 machine should pay for itself over time.

Today’s Amazon deal is the cheapest we’ve ever seen this model, but note that it’s a Gold Box deal, meaning this price is only available today, or until sold out.


Today only, Amazon’s offering big savings on select womens’ grooming gear, including hair straighteners, epilators, hairdryers, and a lot more. Even if you don’t need any of these for yourself, perhaps you’ll find a last minute mother’s day gift.


Own any amiibo? There’s no excuse not to show them off in this green pipe stand for just $3. Don’t worry, it’s not a warp pipe.


Nobody really needs a bread maker, but making your own bread from scratch is rewarding in the same way that making any food yourself is rewarding, and these discounted Panasonics make it easy.

You’ve got two options in today’s Amazon Gold Box. This basic model is available for $90, or about $50 less than usual, and can bake a 2.5 pound loaf. It even includes an 11 hour delay option and a yeast dispenser to add the yeast automatically at the optimal time.

If you want more flexibility, here’s another option down to $220, or about $80 less than usual. That price premium gets you a nut and raisin dispenser and a gluten-free mode, among other bells and whistles. Just note that like all Gold Box deals, these prices are only available today, or until sold out.


If you’ve come home after work to one too many destroyed pillows or overturned trashcans, this ingenious little gadget can help you keep an eye on your pets from anywhere.

Petcube is a Wi-Fi camera, intercom system, and laser toy all wrapped into one sleek package, and Amazon is selling it today for $149, or $50 off its usual price. The video above does a better job of explaining this thing than I ever could, and if you own a pet and spend a lot of time away from home, it certainly seems like it could be a great investment.


If you don’t have the time or inclination to use a french press, your favorite automatic coffee maker is down to an all-time low $95 today on Amazon.


Techmatte’s excellent, minimalist, universal magnetic smartphone vent mount is back down to $5 today with code C3LLYQ2H.

These ridiculously cheap mounts are among the most popular products we’ve ever listed, and carry both Lifehacker Editorial and Lifehacker Hive Five recommendations.

KMASHI 15,000mAh, $13 with code KMAS1991 | Aukey 20,000mAh, $25 | Jackery Titan 20,100mAh, $28

Everyone should own a large USB battery pack for long plane rides and power outages, and you’ve got three solid options to choose from today.

The KMASHI is the smallest of the bunch, but the best deal in terms of price-per-mAh. It’s also one of our top sellers. The Jackery and the Aukey have nearly identical capacities, but the Jackery costs a few dollars more due to its premium aluminum exterior.


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 still have any TVs without a Chromecast attached, Staples will sell you one at a $5 discount today. Plus, Google will throw in 90 days of unlimited music for free.


LG’s ChromeBase is basically a garden variety Chromebook, but packed into an all-in-one desktop PC with a 22" 1080p display. If that sounds like something you need, today’s price on Amazon is an all-time low, and over $70 less than usual.


Today in dumb things that I kind of want anyway, we’ve got the clever Polaroid Snap instant digital camera marked down to $100 with a pack of film, or $113 with film and a pouch.

Don’t be fooled by the image; this isn’t an instant film camera as you know it. It’s a digital camera that can store 10MP images on a microSD card, that can optionally also print 2"x3" photos at the push of a button. Does anyone need it? No way, but I can see the appeal.


This highly rated Tiger rice cooker includes multiple settings for different types of rice, and can even be used as a slow cooker or steamer to prepare your main dishes as well. Today’s $48 price tag is a match for an all-time low.


I can’t think of a better protagonist for a series of childrens’ books than Darth Vader, and you can pick up four different titles today for just $2 each on Kindle.


No, it’s not a prop from 50 Shades of Grey; it’s an outdoor hammock chair, and it can be yours for $30.


Life’s too short to vacuum every other day, but luckily, you can pawn that tedious chore off to a Roomba, and the excellent 770 model is marked down to $380 today on Amazon, within $5 of an all-time low.

I recently got this exact model, and I absolutely love it. While it does require a bit of babysitting from time to time, I haven’t vacuumed my house manually in over a month, and yet the floors always feel clean, even with two pets.

The Roomba 650 is also marked down to $300, but you’ll lose out on one of the virtual walls and true HEPA filters.


In spite of all the snark when it first launched, the Amazon Echo is actually really great (and only getting better over time), and you can save $20 on yours if you buy it from Staples today.

In addition to being a pretty solid Bluetooth speaker, the Echo can check the weather, turn on your lights, read you the news, trigger custom IFTTT recipes, and even order food. Amazon ran a one-day sale a few weeks ago for $6 less, but if you missed out, or you’ve become so hooked that you want to order another, this is still a solid deal.


Mpow 8-LED Outdoor Deck Light, $12 with code XFMNHHOW

Amazon’s top-selling outdoor deck light requires absolutely zero wiring, and includes an ambient light and motion sensor to illuminate your porch or deck when it’s needed most. If you’ve ever struggled to unlock your door at night, this is absolutely worth $12.


Most measuring cups are bundled together with a chain or metal ring to keep them organized, but that means when you want to use one, the rest will dangle there like an unwanted appendage. These ingenious OXO measuring cups though use magnets in the handles to stay together while stored, while remaining easily separable while you’re cooking.


Magicfly TENS Massager, $18 with code F2UVESCO

Full disclosure, I don’t know if TENS (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) massagers actually do anything useful. I use one occasionally after exercising, and I think it helps reduce muscle pain. At the very least, it feels cool.

In any event, this is not a medical endorsement, simply a deal post, and this is about as cheap as you’ll ever see one of these things.


Today on Amazon, three popular Razer gaming mice are on sale today, including the beloved DeathAdder Chroma.

All three of these prices are all-time lows, so pick the one that suits your gaming style, and lock in your order before they sell out.
