Amazon’s new Echo Spot is like an adorably rounded Echo Show, and as a consequence, one of the best alarm clocks ever made. But unlike all of its Echo brethren, Amazon’s never run a discount on it, until today.
The catch here is that you’ll have to buy two Spots, but if you do, you’ll save $20 on each. Just add both to your cart, and you’ll see a $40 discount that brings the combined total down to $220.
NETGEAR’s Nighthawk X6 includes all the networking features you could possibly want, including tri-band support, six beamforming antennas, and two USB ports for connecting printers and external storage drives. Oh, and it’s fast. Like, really fast. Clip the $20 coupon on the page to get it for $170, the best price in months.
Yi makes your favorite budget action cam, and right now its 4K sibling is just $150 with the code 4O4MO2LD. Jillian got a chance to test this guy out on the rapids of the Hudson River and it offers a ton of bang for its buck.
Seagate’s FireCuda is one of the most popular PS4 replacement hard drives out there, mostly thanks to its built-in 8GB of flash storage that can speed up loading times, and you can get the 2TB model for just $85 today, or roughly $10 less than usual.
Even if you don’t feel like cracking open your PS4, you could pop this into an inexpensive enclosure like this one, and use it as an external drive over USB.
One day, all USB ports will be USB-C (or we’ll all be dead, it’s a coin flip). In the meantime, you should stock up on USB 3.0 to USB-C cables to help manage the transition.
KMASHI’s ultra-affordable 10,000mAh battery pack is back, and it’s as cheap as ever. Get it for just $9 with promo code 9YVPU7TD, and kiss your battery anxiety goodbye.
Want Quick Charge 3.0? There’s a RAVPower deal for you today as well, though it’s quite a bit more expensive.
USB-C is going to be really great once it’s everywhere, but until then, we’re confined to dongle purgatory. This $33 hub from Aukey turns one USB-C port into four USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI port, and even includes a pass-through 60W USB-C port for charging.
Four USB ports for your car might seem like overkill, but you can hit that pretty quickly between a dash cam, maybe a Qi charger, plus a couple of charging cables for passengers. At $12, better safe than sorry.
This 21.5" 4K Retina iMac isn’t the latest and greatest—it was released in late 2015—but it’s a solid deal for a Mac at $900 refurbished. That’s $119 less than Apple’s current refurb price for the exact same model, and you still get the same 1-year Apple warranty that you’d get by buying from them.
We see deals with some regularity on Anker’s 6' and 10' nylon-wrapped PowerLine+ Lightning cables, but today, you can upgrade your standard 3' cords for just $8 each. The PowerLine+ feels ridiculously nice in the hand, is way more durable than Apple’s first party cable, and comes with an 18 month warranty, so what’s not to love?
Note: The code is only valid on the red model.
You all have bought a ton of Brother monochrome laser printers, and with good reason! But if you really need to be able to print in color, this color laser model has never been cheaper than it is today.
The poetically named Brother MFC9130CW has just about every feature you’d want in a printer, including Wi-Fi, AirPrint and Google Cloud Print support, a flatbed scanner, and even the ability to send faxes. And oh yeah, it can spit out a page just about every three seconds, even if you’re printing in full color.
Anker’s PowerPort line of multi-port USB chargers are our readers’ favorites, and this model is one of the few that includes USB-C Power Delivery, which outputs up to 30W to power devices like the new MacBooks, or even a Nintendo Switch. You can save a whopping $22 today with promo code ANKER599, which brings this down to an all-time low $34.
If you own an older vehicle, you probably don’t have Bluetooth. Hell, you might not even have an AUX jack. But that doesn’t mean you can’t stream music, podcasts, and phone calls wirelessly to your stereo.
Just plug this $13 transmitter (with code LTF8BHJS) into your car’s power outlet (it has two built-in USB ports so you can still charge your phone), find an empty radio station, connect your phone over Bluetooth, and stream away.
Whether you’re an iPhone owner who finally gets to enjoy wireless charging, or you’ve had it for years with your Android devices, this discounted Qi stand will charge and prop up your device. And with two charging coils built in, it’ll even work when you lay down your phone in landscape mode.
VPNs are in the news these days, and with good reason. So if you’re curious to sign up and start protecting your browsing history and personal data (or, you know, getting around websites’ geoblocks), NordVPN charges less per month than a typical trip to Starbucks.
NordVPN has long been one of the most popular and reliable VPN providers out there, and if you sign up for a one-year membership, promo code VIP70 will drop your annual price from $69 to $48. If you’re sure you want to commit, use this link to get a special two year plan for $79 with code 2YSpecial2017, or this link to get three years for $99 with code 3ydeal. Lifehacker has recommended Nord in some previous guides, but if you have any firsthand experience with the service, sound off in the comments!

Update: Sold out
If you have any big home improvement projects on the horizon, today’s DEWALT deal on Amazon might be a great investment.
$399 gets you an impact driver, a hammer drill, a worklight, a circular saw, a reciprocating saw, a tool bag, a battery charger, and two lithium batteries that can work with all the tools. Today’s Gold Box deal is by far an all-time low price on the kit, but even at its usual $550-$600, it’s racked up a stellar 4.5 star review average.
Just remember that like all Gold Box deals, this price is only available today, or until sold out.
This desktop telescope might not be powerful enough to see the rings of Saturn or details on the surface of Mars, but it’s a great starter scope to observe the moon, comets, and star clusters, and you can grab it for an all-time low $40 on Amazon today.
While you’re at it, pick up a telescope phone mount like this one to get started with astro photography.
Those stainless steel tumblers are all basically the same—they’ll all keep your drinks hot or cold for absurd amounts of time—but this one from VAVA is a little more...rounded (?) than most. It almost looks like a water balloon that someone squeezed at the bottom. Anyway, get it for $11 with promo code KINJAHP3, and gulp down the ice cold savings.
It’s worth having at least a small safe in your house for valuables and important documents, and this one from AmazonBasics is only $44 today, or about $9-$12 less than usual. Just like the safes you’d find in hotel rooms, this one uses a digital keypad for access, but you’ll also get a couple of backup keys if you forget the code, or if the battery dies.
This is hardly the first deal we’ve seen on a phone repair screwdriver kit, but it’s the first time we’ve ever seen one for just $7. That includes screwdriver heads for most major electronics products, plus a suction cup to help you remove screens, and some plastic tweezers too.
Give a Larabars a try with this variety box, just $18 after the $6 off coupon. If you’re unfamiliar with Larabars, they’re gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, vegan bars, mostly made from dates. This brand has a bunch of interesting flavors, blueberry muffin is my personal favorite, and this variety box is a good option if you aren’t ready to commit to a big box of one flavor.
This KRUPS grinder is not a burr coffee grinder, but it is a good $4 - $8 less than usual. Even if you already have a coffee grinder you like, this could work well as a mini food processors for herbs, spices, and nuts.
If you haven’t replaced your metal spring mattress with a giant block of foam that you bought on the internet, what are you even doing with your life? Amazon’s currently marking Zinus 12" foam mattresses down to just $159 for a full, or $179 for a queen, both of which are all-time low prices.
It’s certainly a little scary buying a mattress sight unseen, but the Zinus boasts a 4.4 star review average from over 12,000 Amazon customers, so it might be worth the risk, at least for a guest room.
Seal the unused half of your fruits and veggies in these $6 silicone Food Huggers, and then rinse, and reuse over and over again. Sure, you could use plastic wrap to achieve the same thing, but you can’t always untangle plastic wrap to reuse a second time. The Food Huggers come in four sizes and can also be used as jar lids, small bowls, or jewelry holders. Today’s price is the lowest they’ve ever been, so squeeze in this deal before it’s gone.
This 6-piece stackable container set will keep your refrigerator and freezer presentable. It comes with special containers for cans, eggs, and then more generic shapes for everything else. This set normally bounces between $30 - $35, and today’s price is an all-time low.
Extra bedding takes up way too much room. Pack it all up in this underbed storage bag, just $11 with code K2WWT5RC and when you clip the $2 off coupon.
If the thought of a $16 rice cooker isn’t enough to engage your salivary glands—and really, what’s more exciting than rice?—consider that it also includes a steaming tray that can cook your meats and vegetables simultaneously. That means dinner gets ready faster, and with less to clean up.
Contigo’s Autoseal West Loop travel mugs are a longtime reader favorite, but the similar SnapSeal Byron is marked down to one of the best prices we’ve seen today on Amazon.
You get to choose from either the 20 oz. or 24 oz. model for this deal. Usually, when we post a deal on Contigo mugs, it’s for the West Loop model, but the Byron’s a little bit different. Unlike the West Loop, the Byron’s lid doesn’t open and close automatically, though many reviewers say it’s easier to clean. The Byron also includes a rubberized non-slip sleeve, which is a nice touch, especially at these prices.
While they might not conform to the classic look of our favorite chef’s knives , this Cuisinart knife set is anything but dull (get it?). You can own the whole collection today for just $16, one of the best prices we’ve seen.
Don’t let the colors fool you, these knives are stainless steel, and extremely sharp. The set has a 4.6 star average on nearly 4,000 reviews, and while the colors might not seem like your thing, they do help you keep track and avoid cross-contaminating food while you use them.
Tired of using your phone as an alarm clock? This $27 atomic clock shows you a bunch of important information, like temperature, date, etc, without all the extra distraction your phone can provide. This normally costs $35, but is down to $27 today.
Everything’s better with lasers, including tape measures. This laser distance measure takes instant distance readings of up to 197', and includes several built-in area calculation functions, in case you’re a little rusty on your middle school geometry. Get it for $25 today with promo code RRL9AWVW.
Update: The endoscope we wrote about yesterday sold out, but here’s a very similar product for just $1 more.
Look, I get it, you don’t think you need an endoscope. And you probably don’t! At least right now. But the day will come—it could be in a week, it could be in 10 years—where you need a snake-like camera to look down a drain, or in the recesses of a car engine, or inside your air conditioning ducts, and you’ll be glad you bought one for $19.
Dr. Meter’s Wi-Fi endoscope is a 720p camera with built-in LED headlights at the end of a five-meter, semi-rigid cable. At the other end of the cord is an included Wi-Fi module that that broadcasts live video to your phone or computer over, so you see what the camera sees. It also comes with three attachments (a hook, a magnet, and a mirror) that you can slip onto the end to peer around corners, or retrieve tiny items.
At this point, I feel like I should cover my bases and point out that this is not a medical device. Please, don’t put it inside you or anyone else. Otherwise, have fun. Thanks.
Put up all your mops, brooms, and dusters on this $10 wall mount (with code M3AS4UGI). It will likely be your most adult purchase of the day.
Garment bags are the perfect solution for keeping fancy clothing safe while traveling, but I highly recommend storing those suits and dresses in one of these even in a closet. For $8, you can grab a 3-piece garment bag set, plus a shoe bag, with the code FKDVQ5KX.

Update: The extra 15% off we mentioned this morning is working now. You should see it at checkout automatically.
It’s the perfect time to plan for a a big run (or finish off training for an upcoming race). Nike has the perfect sale for those of us that need to update their workout wardrobe, because god knows how long you’ve had those leggings or basketball shorts for. For the next few days, they’re taking up to 50% off over 500 styles for men, women, and kids. Everything from running tights to sneakers to sports bras is included.
If you’re sick of shoving your cold, wet feet into boots and are ready to break out shoes that you can actually see your ankles in, Sperry is here for moral support. Use the code KINJA10 and grab an extra 10% off their entire sale section, which does include weatherproof boots, but also classic Sperry boat shoes, sneakers, sandals, and even some flip flops. Plus, this sale includes clothing as well.
A plain, long-sleeve t-shirt isn’t anything to get too excited about, but at $6, it’s worth grabbing it in a couple different colors. Uniqlo’s cotton items are always really, really soft and this tee worth it even at full price, but even more worth it when it’s on sale.
If you weren’t aware (I wasn’t), ThinkGeek carries vinyl. Soundtracks to your favorite movies, video games, and TV shows are all on sale for up to 60% off. From Stranger Things and Star Wars to Cuphead and Legend of Zelda, you can listen to pop culture soundtracks on vinyl and relive those memories.
