Top Deals

If you’ve been in the market for a new gaming PC or laptop, today might be the day to grab your credit card and pull the trigger.

Today only, Amazon’s discounting nine different PC configurations as part of a Gold Box deal, along with a handful of accessories to get you started. On the desktop side, prices start at just $420 for a liquid-cooled CybertronPC Patriot HBX, and extend up to over $2,700 for a Hexacore PC with dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 graphics cards.

In general though, the laptops seem to feature the bigger price drops. You can grab a Lenovo Y700 for $765 (an all-time low, down from its usual $900), a 17" MSI GT72 Dominator for $1200 ($400 less than usual, and an all-time low by $300), and several other options.

Like all Gold Box deals, supplies here are limited, and the prices are only available today, so go check the specs, and lock in your orders.


If Labor Day to you is about shopping the huge apparel and lifestyle sales, you’ve come to the right place. Sales from Uniqlo, Nordstrom Rack, Indochino, and more are happening right this very second. Head over to our Labor Day roundup to see all of the deals, and keep checking back throughout the long weekend.


While the Logitech Harmony Touch doesn’t have as many physical buttons as its brethren, its integrated touchscreen can perform all of the same functions as you control up to 15 of your favorite devices, from a database of nearly a quarter million. $100 is a match for the best price we’ve seen, so pick one up before they’re all swallowed up in someone else’s couch cushions.


PlayStation Plus, $37 with promo code FIRST. New accounts only.

If you’ve never used Groupon before, or if, uh, you happened to create a new account, you can get a year of PlayStation Plus for $37 today with promo code FIRST. Just to be clear, this is only available for new Groupon accounts that have never made a purchase before.

PlayStation Plus normally costs $50, but next month, that’ll rise to $60, so stock up while you can.


This weekend only, eBay’s taking 20% off eligible $25+ home & outdoor purchases with promo code C20LABORDAY. You can see all of the eligible sellers here, but some options include air mattresses, vacuums, generators, and lawn tools, just for starters.



American Tourister 21" Rolling Carry-On, $49 with code TRAVEL50 | 25" for $59 | 29" for $69

American Tourister luggage isn’t the best stuff you can buy, but if you don’t travel all that frequently, it should get the job done. BuyDig’s currently taking $50 off 21" carry-ons, plus 25" and 29" checked rollers with promo code TRAVEL50, bringing them all down to $49-$69, in the color of your choice. That’s less than an overweight baggage fee.


It’s not 4K, and it doesn’t include smart apps, but if your taste in TV size doesn’t jibe with the size of your bank account, it’s kind of incredible that you can buy a 50" HDTV for $250.


T-Mobile Router, $59 with code WIFI40

One of the best wireless router deals we’ve ever seen is running right now at T-Mobile, of all places. $59 gets you a rebranded ASUS RT-AC68U AC1900 router (with code WIFI40), which is about $100 less than buying it from Amazon.

The T-Mobile version has some T-Mobile branding and claims to be optimized for Wi-Fi calling, but under the hood, it’s just a standard (and very popular) Wi-Fi router. The deal is available to everyone, even if you aren’t a T-Mobile customer, but it sold out within hours earlier in August, so we don’t expect it to last long.


TP-Link AC3150 Router, $140 after $20 coupon.

If you home network is still stuck in the 802.11n era, you can upgrade to this popular TP-Link AC3150 router today for an all-time low $140, after you clip the $20 coupon on the page. Even prior to the coupon, $160 would have been the best price ever on this model, which features dual 2.4 GHz bands and a 5GHz band, beamforming, a pair of USB ports, and more.

This is actually part of today’s PC gaming Amazon Gold Box, so click here to check out the rest of the deals.

If you don’t need anything quite this powerful, check out T-Mobile’s router deal, which we expect to sell out quickly.


iClever USB-C to USB/Ethernet Hub, $10 with code ICLEVER0

If you own a laptop with USB-C, and the new MacBook in particular, this is one of the most attractive USB and ethernet hubs I’ve seen, not to mention one of the most affordable. Just use promo code ICLEVER0 at checkout.


With Under Armour ultra-drying Tech fabric under $30, it’s going to be hard to ignore this Gold Box. For today only, grab any kind of Under Armour top you could need, with everything dropped below $30, and they come in a crazy amount of sizes (including 5X-Tall). But like I said, it’s just today, so you’d better grab some while you can.


It’s a Labor Day miracle. After a few months of sticking to their $5 flat rate shipping, Uniqlo has finally brought back free shipping. Plus, in honor not only of the holiday, but of the reopening of their SoHo flagship and celebrating their Tokyo roots with “A New Tokyo in SoHo” there are some incredible deals for both men and women, most under $10.


You know when you ask someone to take a picture of you and your family on vacation, and you quickly learn that almost nobody understands how to take a decent photo? With a mini tripod, you can be in total control of those long range selfies, and this $10 model from Aukey works with everything from DSLRs to smartphones.

Pair it with these smartphone camera lens attachments for even more shooting options.


Need some entertainment options for you long weekend? Amazon’s offering up nearly 200 HD movie rentals for just $1 right now. As with all Amazon video rentals, you’ll have 30 days to start watching, and then 48 hours to finish.

There’s a lot to sort through here, so drop your suggestions (with links) into the comments. My pick: Warm Bodies, which had no right to be as good as it was.


Buying a KitchenAid is basically a rite of passage, and you can get a basic 4.5 quart model from Best Buy today for just $200, one of the best prices we’ve seen for a non-refurb.


Star Wars is back with a vengeance, and you can catch up on the first six feature films with these Steelbook Blu-rays, now down to just $10 each. I bet I can guess which three will sell the least.


20% off Takeya Vacuum Insulated Bottles, Discount Shown at Checkout

Takeya, the company behind this popular cold brew coffee maker, also makes vacuum insulated stainless steel water bottles, and Amazon’s taking an extra 20% off select models at checkout today.

Options range from 14 ounce bottles appropriate for your desk up to massive 40 ounce vessels for long hikes and workout sessions, and all of them can keep a drink cold for up to 24 hours, or hot for up to 12. Just note that you won’t see the deal price until you get to the final checkout page.


Next time you wax your car, you could either buff until your arm falls out of its socket, or you could spend $20 and buy yourself this electric orbital polisher. I’m going to use my one remaining arm to purchase this. It even comes with wax, as well as buffing and polishing pads.


Labor Day, the day that people think is about celebrating America but it’s really just a free day off work, is upon us. In celebration, Timbuk2 is slashing its prices once again. Get 25% off messenger bags, backpacks, laptop bags and more. If you’ve been waiting all summer to grab a new bag for the season that makes you look a little more professional than that Hershel you’ve had for five years, now’s your chance.


I know that we espouse the virtues of monochrome laser printers, but if you really need the ability to print in color, Canon’s Pixma MX922 is worth your consideration. With over 8,000 mostly positive user reviews on Amazon, this is the rare Inkjet printer that you might not actually hate. This model sells for $90 pretty consistently, but today, you can snag one for $70 on eBay.


GreenWorks’ 20-inch battery-powered lawn mower is actually Amazon’s top-selling walk-behind mower, and you can own one today for $279, matching an all-time low. That includes two batteries, which combined, should get you over an hour of mowing time.


This Coleman satchel looks like a normal purse or beach bag, but inside, it’s an insulated 16 can cooler. And unlike a normal hard sided cooler, this one includes side pockets to hold your phone, sunglasses, or extra snacks. Today’s $9 deal is an all-time low, but it’s only available for Prime members.


The Dremel you bought that one time probably came with a handful of attachments and accessories, but you can add 276 more to your toolbox for just $18 today.


Aukey Bluetooth Car Kit, $19 with code CARKITC8

We’ve seen a lot of deals on Bluetooth car receivers, but I don’t think any of them have looked as nice as this model from Aukey. It even lets you pair two phones at once, and comes with a three-port USB charger to keep all of your devices charged as well. Just note that your car will need an AUX jack for this to work.


3-Tier Shelving System, $21 with code D86E5D99

Assuming your closet is at least 32" across, this ridiculously affordable shelving system is a great way to keep it organized. You get three shelves, and two collapsible “drawer” boxes, all for just $21, with Prime shipping straight to your front door. Just use code D86E5D99 at checkout to get the discount.


The best all-around SSD for most people is down to $140 for 500GB, one of the best prices we’ve seen on this model. It’d obviously be a great upgrade over a spinning hard drive for your computer, but you could also stick it in an enclosure to create your own super-fast external drive.


We shared the first deal on these Rubbermaid FreshWorks containers a few weeks ago, and on several occasions since, and you guys have bought thousands of them, to the point that Amazon has often killed the deal within hours of our posting it. So if you’ve missed out on Amazon’s previous deals, or loved yours so much that you want to buy more, the two-pack is back on sale for $17 today, down from $20.

So, what’s the big deal? First, each FreshWorks product includes a “crisp tray” which elevates your produce off the bottom of the container, giving moisture a place to drip, and air enough room to flow. Second and most importantly, the lids feature special filters that regulate the flow of oxygen and CO2 into and out of the containers. All told, Rubbermaid claims keeps food fresh up to 80% longer than store packaging.

It may sounds too good to be true, but customer reviews are fantastic, and Amazon’s offering a 2-piece set for $17 today, down from their usual $20. If they save just a few batches of arugula or scoops of blueberries that you would have otherwise thrown out, they’ll have already paid for themselves.


Another day, another J.Crew Factory markdown. This time, get an extra 50% off basically everything full-price (the only exclusions are men’s suiting, cashmere and leather items), an extra 50% off clearance styles when you use the code WOOHOO. Grab a new button-down for $35 or some new chinos for $30.


HDTV RGB Bias Light, $12 with code 5FYOQONG | With Remote, $14 with code AONZAJ8Z

The proliferation of inexpensive HDTV bias lights has been the only good thing to happen in 2016, but even by our standards, $12-$14 for RGB models is cheap.

If you haven’t seen these before, they’re basically LED light strips that plug directly into your TV’s USB port for power, and sticks to the back of the set via built-in adhesive. Once you turn your TV on, the light strip will cast a soft glow on the wall behind it, which can reduce eyestrain when watching in the dark, and improve your TV’s perceived black levels.

The $12 model is a single 35" strip with a single inline switch to change the colors, while the $14 version is a pair of 19" strips that you can control with a remote.
