Top Deals

Update: Sold out.

Xbox Live Gold is basically a requisite add-on for your new Xbox One, but don’t get suckered into paying the full $60. While supplies last, here’s an entire year for $45.


Need an extra controller for your Xbox One? eBay has one for only $30 right now if you hurry. Just a head’s up: it’s the old model, but for $30, it’s totally worth it to have an extra controller hanging around.

PS4 Pro, $370

PS4 Pro deals have been few and far between, Black Friday notwithstanding, but right now, you can pick up a 1TB PS4 Pro for $370.

Athleisure is an mystery to a lot of people, but in my opinion, it’s really just an excuse to not wear real pants. So today only, Amazon is marking down athleisure styles, with some actual workout clothes mixed in, from brands like Adidas, PUMA, Lacoste, and more.

Here are a few things to mull over, but head over to Amazon to see everything.

If you’ve never steam-cleaned a carpet, get ready for an eyeopening experience when you see just how much crap a person can track into a home. At $74 (its best price ever), this discounted Hoover SteamVac is perfect for keeping your carpets actually clean as opposed to just looking clean. This being a Gold Box though, this price will get sucked up for good at the end of the day.

Eneloops are the best rechargeable batteries, and since you can never have enough of them, here are eight AAs for $18, the best price ever.

Expand your skin care regimen and get $5 back from Target. Pick up three select Neutrogena products and get a $5 Target gift card. I swear by the Hydro Boost Water Gel with SPF and the fragrance-free makeup remover towelettes. Stock up on one of the best drugstore skin care brands out there.

Uniqlo HEATTECH is probably one of the best, and most affordable, technologies for staying warm out right now. Usually, you think of their t-shirts and layering pieces, but they also put that tech into gloves. And right now, their HEATTECH gloves are only $4.

These microfiber mitts are great for washing your car or dusting around the house, but they could also come in handy on Halloween for terrifying children as you hand out candy. They’re worth $7 either way, in my opinion.

Amazon added 50+ new Dash buttons to their lineup this morning, and while you probably don’t need most of them (except the Brownie Brittle one, you definitely need that), there may be a few in there that could come in handy around your house. The buttons still cost $5 each, but as an added incentive, you’ll get that $5 back in the form of an Amazon credit when you press it for the first time.

Hook up a Dash button for basically anything you need now. Here are a few standouts:

If you’re still wrestling with a terrible inkjet printer at home, do yourself a solid and pick up the reliable Brother HL-2380DW monochrome laser printer today for just $100 today.

Aukey Quick Charge 3.0 Car Charger, $9 with code OHBVOTE9
Advertisement

Most Quick Charge 3.0 car chargers include one QC port, and then one or more standard charging ports. That might not seem like that big a deal on its face, but if you keep cables plugged into both ports at all times, it can be tough to tell at a glance which one will give you the fastest charging speed during your commute. With this $9 charger from Aukey though, that won’t be an issue.

Raising a kid is expensive enough as it is, but Amazon’s throwing parents a lifeline with an extra 30% off Plum Organics baby and toddler food.

This discounted flash drive doesn’t look like anything special at first blush, but hit one button, and it transforms into tiny wireless media server, allowing you to pull up files on any of your devices, including phones and tablets.

That means next time you travel, you can stream movies to your tablet or store photos from your phone without filling up your device’s precious onboard storage. Today’s $30 price tag is a match for the 64GB model’s all-time low.

While supplies last (which, if history is any indication, won’t be long), you can get a 17 cup and 2.5 cup RubberMaid FreshWorks container for $17. We saw a few lower prices around Black Friday last year, but this set usually sells for $20.

A lot of you have taken advantage of the current AmazonBasics AA rechargeable battery sale, but if you need some AAAs to go with them, you can get four for under $6 today.

That’s an all-time low price, and over $3 less than the equivalent Eneloop pack. And if you believe some reviewers, these may actually be rebranded Eneloops themselves. We can’t verify that claim (though like Eneloops, they were produced in Japan and pre-charged with solar energy, which seems really specific to be a coincidence), but whatever their origin, they have great reviews, and a stellar price tag.

Anker’s kevlar-wrapped PowerLine cables have been an immediate hit with our readers, and you can upgrade your entire microUSB cable collection today with this $11 5-pack. That’s a couple bucks less than the usual price for this pack, which includes a two 1' cables, two 3', and a 6'.
