Best Tech Deals

Refurb Samsung 27" Curved FreeSync Monitor | $180 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Curved TVs might be a gimmick, but curved computer monitors actually make some sense, because you actually sit close enough to them for the curve to wrap around your periphery.

This 27" curved monitor from Samsung is available for $180 today as a refurb. I wish it was higher resolution than 1080p, but that’s still a solid price for a monitor of this size with AMD FreeSync.


Xiaomi Sphere Action Camera | $250 | Amazon | Promo code 50KINJACAM
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Xiaomi has long been known as a quality tech brand in China, and now its specced-out 360 action cam has trickled over stateside, and we’ve got a $50 promo code.

The Xiaomi Sphere Camera includes two Sony sensors that capture video at 3456×1728 at 30 frames per second, and stitches them together into a full 360 immersive video or photo. It’s also water resistant for your outdoor adventures, includes a mini tripod, and and features six axis electronic stabilization to smooth out your action shots.

If you want to get a sense of how it looks, check out this sample video in Chrome or on your phone. You should be able to spin it around and see all around. Also, I want to go to wherever it was shot.

The camera is normally priced at $300, but you can save $50 today with promo code 50KINJACAM.


Mokcao Bluetooth Speaker | $39 | Amazon | Promo code VCRELMFV
Photo: Amazon

Packing a massive 20W subwoofer (paired with a 10W driver), this Mokcao Bluetooth speaker can put out a lot more bass than you’d expect from a portable sound system. It can’t run for as long as most other speakers on its 7500mAh battery, only about five hours, but that should be enough for most house parties and backyard barbecues.

The speaker is currently on sale for $35 as part of a Lightning Deal, but if you miss out on that, you can still get it for $39 with promo code VCRELMFV.


Ghostek soDrop 2 Headphones | $56 | Amazon | Clip the 20% coupon
Photo: Amazon

Wireless earbuds are a dime a dozen, but if you prefer over-ears, Ghostek’s well-reviewed soDrop 2s are also on sale today for $56 after clipping the 20% coupon, the best deal we’ve ever seen. They run for 14 hours on a charge and boast a 4.2 star review average, so if you’re a fan of their angular design, they’re definitely worth a listen.


Aukey Latitude Bluetooth Headphones | $18 | Amazon | Promo code KINJAE40. Blue and red only.
Photo: Amazon

Even if you already have some Bluetooth headphones that you like, it’s not a bad idea to grab a spare set to keep in a gym bag or suitcase that you can use in a pinch. These Aukey Latitudes are the current Wirecutter runner-up pick for best cheap Bluetooth headphones, and include three EQ modes that you can toggle at the touch of a button.

For a limited time, promo code KINJAE40 will take the blue and red model down to $18.


Aukey 60W USB-C Power Delivery Charger | $40 | Amazon | Promo code AUKEYPY2
Photo: Amazon

There aren’t a ton of 60W USB-C Power Delivery wall chargers out there, let alone those with two extra standard USB ports, but this one from Aukey is just $40 today with promo code AUKEYPY2. With enough power for a phone, a tablet, and a MacBook Pro or Nintendo Switch, it’s highly likely this is the only charger you need for your desk.


Unless you really need to print in color, Brother makes some of the only printers worth buying, and their small office-friendly MFCL2710DW is on sale for a consumer-level price today.

Advertisement

Like Brother’s home printers, this model spits out about 32 pages per minute, includes Wi-Fi connectivity, uses inexpensive and long-lasting toner, and just generally works much more reliably than any inkjet printer out there. The biggest advantage of this model over a consumer-level HL-series printer is that it includes a document feeder for the scanner, meaning it can automatically scan 50 pages in a row with no user input. You might use that feature, like, once, but you’ll probably be really glad you have it.

$120 is the best price Amazon’s ever listed on this model, so list that inkjet printer of yours on Craigslist, and go lock in your order.


With its premium nylon construction and 6,000+ bend lifespan, Anker’s PowerLine+ run laps around Apple’s own Lightning cables, at a lower price point. For a limited time, you can get a pair of 6' cables for just $22. It’s one of the best things you’ll buy for yourself this year.


JackyLED 18-Outlet Vertical Power Strip | $25 | Amazon | Promo code LTC9MR54
Graphic: Shep McAllister

What were they thinking inventing this surge protector and not calling it the Power Tower? Missed marketing opportunities aside, it comes with a whopping 18 outlets, four USB ports, and its own 6.5' retractable power cord. Plus, it rotates for optimum space-saving. Get it for $25 today with promo code LTC9MR54.


DirecTV Now is one of the better over-the-top cable replacements out there, and with this deal, there’s very little reason not to give it a try.

Advertisement

For a limited time, if you prepay for three months of the service at $35 per month, you’ll get a 4K Apple TV included for free. That Apple TV costs $179 normally, so you’re basically getting a $74 discount on the box, plus three months of live TV. No brainer.


VPNs have been in the news, and whether you want to get around video geoblocks, circumvent proxy filters, or just keep prying eyes out of your browsing data while using sketchy public Wi-Fi, reader-favorite Private Internet Access has a deal to fit your needs.

Advertisement

Last month, they offered our readers $10 off two year memberships, but this time around, you get a few more choices, ranging from a quick taste of the service to an extended commitment with additional savings:

These deals are only for our readers, but we aren’t sure how long they’ll be available, so go ahead and sign up while you can.

Instant Pot Ultra 8 qt. | $160 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

<Blows into bugle> Attention, everyone. The best Instant Pots you can buy are on sale, if you hurry. You should buy one.

Advertisement

The Instant Pot Ultra features a completely revamped, dial-based UI that makes fine-tuned adjustments faster and easier than the older models. A new processor allows it to compensate for altitude and carry out completely custom programs, and it also has a few modes you won’t find on the standard Instant Pots, like cake, eggs, and sterilize. For a limited time, both the 6 qt. and 8 qt. versions are on sale for $20 off. That’s the best deal of the year on the smaller model, and the first discount we’ve ever seen on the large one.

If you’re worried that you won’t get a ton of use out of this thing, note that in addition to speedy pressure cooking, this is also our readers’ favorite slow cooker, and one of their favorite rice cookers too. Basically, it’s one of the most versatile kitchen gadgets you can own.


Snack Sample Box | $10 | Amazon | Plus $10 credit towards a future snack purchase
Graphic: Shep McAllister

At long last, Amazon has a brand new snack sample box up for order, and it’s basically free.

Advertisement

Spend $10 to get eight or more snack samples to munch on, and then use the included $10 credit to buy more of your favorites. The exact contents of the box will vary, but RXBARS cost about $2 each at the store, and it seems like you’ll get a nice mix of healthy options and indulgent junk food.

Image: PicoBrew (PicoBrew.com)

TP-Link Smart Plug | $20 | Amazon

Smart plugs are like a gateway drug into home automation, and TP-Link’s is down to $20 on Amazon right now, a match for the best price we’ve seen. This basically lets you control any device with an on/off switch from your phone, or even with your voice via an Echo device.


Ghost Paper Notebook | $20 | Amazon | Promo code KINJA501

Even (or perhaps, especially) in the age of laptops and tablets, many people prefer the tactile experience of jotting down notes with an actual pen and paper, and the most tactile experience of all comes from the Ghost Paper Notebook.

Advertisement

Rather than simply printing lines on the sheet to keep your letters straight, Ghost Paper’s lines are very slightly embossed, giving your pen an actual base from which to start each character. Shane tried one of these out earlier this year and loved it, and you can get your own notebook for $5 off today with promo code KINJA501. If you need a unique Mother’s Day gift idea, this could definitely fit the bill.

Ghost Paper also comes in stationery form now, and you can get a set for just $10. That’s half the usual price, and the discount is due to a defect on the cartons that hold the paper and envelopes, though those are in perfect condition, which is all that really matters. Just add it to your cart, and you’ll see the discount at checkout.

Hitachi 170 MPH Leaf Blower | $89 | Amazon
Hitachi Gas String Trimmer | $148 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Battery-powered lawn tools are definitely on the ascendancy, but if you prefer the power and essentially unlimited runtime of the internal combustion engine, a couple of highly rated Hitachi tools are on sale today.

Advertisement

Both this 170 MPH leaf blower and this string trimmer have never been cheaper, but these prices are only available today, or until sold out.


This 3-pack of best-selling Rubbermaid FreshWorks Produce Storage containers is not at its lowest price, but it is a good $5 - $7 less than usual.

Advertisement

Waste King Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Every so often, we see deals on individual Waste King garbage disposal models, and our readers always buy a ton of them. Today though, you’ve got two different choices in Amazon’s Gold Box.

Advertisement

The main difference between the models is the speed and strength of the motor. You can get 1/3 horsepower for $45 or a full horsepower for $91, both the best prices of the year. These deals are only available today, so get your order in before they’re all gobbled up.


Kitchen appliances can take up way too much of your kitchen storage space. Consolidate your blender, food processor, and sprializer into one machine with this $95 Ninja Kitchen System.

Advertisement

Our readers voted a Ninja blender as their favorite blender, so you don’t have to worry about this not getting the job done. On top of the larger pitcher, it even comes with a personal smoothie cup for drinks on-the-go. The food processor work bowl can handle up to 3.5 cups of pureeing, mixing, chopping, and more. And, you’ll get three discs for the spiralizer to make spaghetti, fettuccine, and ribbon noodles out of the vegetables of your choice.

This machine normally sells for closer to $175, and today’s price is a good $50 less than the previous historic low, so grab one before they’re gone.

Get two of them in the color of your choice (except brown and grey) for just $60 with promo code BESTCHOICEGRAVITY. That should leave you with more money to spend on other patio essentials like string lights, or drinks to put in the built-in cupholders.


As you know, keeping your knives sharp keeps you safer, since you’ll have to use less pressure to slice. A whetstone (or water stone) is how the pros keep their knives in the best shape, and this one is just $9 today, the cheapest it’s been for almost 11 months So, if you’re looking to do your own knife sharpening, get this deal before it’s gone. I would recommend watching a couple of videos on how to do it, if you’ve never tried before.


ECOVACS N79 Robotic Vacuum | $159 | Amazon | Promo code ECOVACS1

Vacuuming is simultaneously the worst chore, and the chore most easily and cheaply pawned off to a robot.

Advertisement

While it lacks the brand recognition of a Roomba, and we can’t personally vouch for them like we can for the Eufy RoboVac 11, this ECOVACS vacuum has solid reviews, and are insanely affordable today at $159 with promo code ECOVACS1. You can even control it from your phone, which is very rare in this price range.

Best Lifestyle Deals

Graphic: Shep McAllister

Privé Revaux turned the sunglass industry on its head last year with a wide variety of attractive frames for just $30 each, but you can get them for even less today with 20% promo code PRSPRING.

Advertisement

Everything they sell on Amazon is eligible, so be sure to look beyond the main page. The Men’s and Women’s sections have a lot more styles, and some frames, like the new Madelaine Collection are only available from the New Arrivals dropdown menu. The unisex Commando aviators are Privé’s most popular though, so feel free to start with those.

Privé now sells a couple of blue light-blocking computer glasses as well that you could grab with this sale. They aren’t sunglasses, and they obviously aren’t prescription, but they could be just what you need if suffer from eyestrain at work.


Oral-B Pro 7000 SmartSeries Toothbrush | $115 | Amazon | Clip the $20 coupon.

$115's a solid price for any top of the line electric toothbrush, and Oral-B’s Pro 7000 SmartSeries add Bluetooth to the mix, just for kicks.

Advertisement

In addition to six different cleaning modes (including one for your tongue), a travel kit, a pressure sensor, and a timer, the Pro 7000 also syncs to an iOS or Android app that tracks your brushing habits and offers personalized feedback.

I know a lot of people are reflexively against the Bluetoothification of everyday household items, and that’s fine. What I’m saying is that even if you never download that app, this is still a fantastic toothbrush at $115. Just be sure to clip the $20 coupon on the page to get the full discount.


Gold’s Gym Olympic Bench Set | $139 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Update: Now backordered, but you can still place your order at this price.

If you’ve got the space for it, this Gold’s Gym Olympic Bench includes a six roll leg developer, a preacher pad, and a full rack. Basically, everything you need for a good workout, except the weights. Today’s $139 price is within $10 for an all-time low, and comes with free shipping despite weighing more than 100 pounds. Sincerest apologies to your delivery driver.


Up to 41% off Select Massage Chairs | Home Depot
Graphic: Erica Offutt

If your tax return is burning a hole in your pocket or if you want to show your mom just how much you love her on Mother’s Day, take a seat in of these deeply discounted massage chairs from Home Depot.

Advertisement

Just a warning before we go any further, these chairs aren’t for those who have a passing interest. They are all at least $1,100, so if that’s too outrageous for your taste, go ahead and read this instead.

For those of you who are still here, let me continue. Home Depot has discounted these reclining massage chairs, complete with remote controls, heating elements, enhanced compression around shoulders, and everything you’d expect from a $1,100+ chair.

In my opinion, the best deal of the bunch is this black Titan Pro Series chair. It’s $1,488 today, which is a lot of money, but it’s listed over $2,000 on other sites. Unlike the $1,200 chairs in the sale, this one scans your body to identify your spine, shoulders, etc, so it can give you a custom massage, something which is especially helpful if you’re anything but average height.

This sale will only last until the end of the day or until the products sell out, so don’t wait for this one to roll away from you.

If you aren’t freaked out by privacy concerns of DNA testing kits (basically, they may sell anonymized genetic data, but not personally identifiable data), the tests are getting better, and 23andMe’s are on sale today.

Advertisement

Both the Health + Ancestry (which now has FDA approval to test for breast cancer risk factors) and Ancestry (which is a lot more precise than it used to be) are on sale for the best prices we’ve seen since Black Friday. I probably wouldn’t buy one as a gift, but if you want to try one yourself, these are great prices.


30% off any order | Cole Haan
Graphic: Jillian Lucas

Update: Cole Haan removed the $175+ threshold, so it’s now 30% off any order.

If reliability is something you crave in a pair of shoes (if it isn’t, you may need to reconsider), I bet you have Cole Haan in your closet. And if you’re looking for a new pair but don’t want to spend the normal asking price, Cole Haan is taking 30% off any order of $175+ during their Semi-Annual Event. Plus, you’ll get free shipping on everything. Finally get a pair of ZERØGRAND’s (or the newer 2.ZERØGRAND’s) or maybe a pair of sandals for whenever the weather decides to cooperate.

Best Gaming Deals

Preorder Yao Stone | $14 | Kickstarter

If you’ve grown tired of your fidget spinners and fidget cubes, Yao Stone might be your hand’s newest obsession.

Advertisement

Yao Stone is basically a smooth worry stone that feels nice in the hand, and a 3x3 array of magnets embedded inside let you click or spin a magnetic disc around on the surface. You can even reverse the polarity of the disc by flipping it over, resulting in a different level of resistance.

They sent me one to try out, and while the flesh-colored plastic is a little off-putting, and I’m worried that I may eventually lose the disc, I’ve barely been able to put the thing down. Fortunately, it comes in a variety of colors.

You can preorder a Yao Stone for $14 on Kickstarter, though with just over two weeks left in the campaign, there’s a pretty good chance this one will fall short. I really do like the thing though, and if you enjoy fidget toys, you probably will too.


If you have Amazon Prime, congrats, you also have Twitch Prime. And if you have Twitch Prime, you get some free PC games every month, no strings attached.

Starting on May 1, you’ll get access to six new games, including Gone Home and Psychonauts, just for starters. All you have to do is connect your Prime and Twitch accounts here, then check back on May 1 to download your games. There’s also still time to download April’s games, which include Steamworld Dig 2 and Tales From the Borderlands. Just click the loot icon on the top of your Twitch homepage to find all of the freebies. Once you add them to your library, they’re yours to keep, even if you cancel your Prime membership further down the road.

Replacing a hard drive with an SSD is one of the most worthwhile upgrades you perform on a computer, and Samsung’s 860 EVO is one of the best drives out there. The 1TB model is currently marked down to an all-time low $280, and for the rest of this week, they’re also throwing in a copy of Far Cry 5 for PC. You’ll receive an email with a game download code after your drive ships.


God of War | $49 | eBay

God of War is pretty spectacular, and if you still haven’t grabbed a copy for your PS4, Newegg’s eBay storefront has marked the game down to $49. So what are you still doing here?


Nintendo Switch Pro Controller | $59 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

The Switch Pro controller isn’t just one of the best ways to control your Nintendo Switch, it might be one of the best gamepads ever made, period. If you have a Switch and still haven’t picked one up, $59 is within $9 of the best price we’ve seen, and a solid $10 less than usual.
