HDTV bias lights are nothing new to our readers, but with three length options, 15 color modes, a color-changing fade setting, and two different control inputs, Luminoodle is probably the most polished option out there.
For a limited time, you can choose from all three lengths (there’s a guide to help you pick on the product page) for 25% off with promo code M89UHFGT. If you aren’t familiar, these ease eyestrain when watching TV at night, improve your TV’s perceived contrast, and just look really cool. Needless to say, this would make for a creative holiday gift as well.
Anker’s reader-favorite PowerCore battery packs run the gamut from tiny tubes that fit into your pocket to massive blocks of energy that can power your devices for days at a time. Today’s deal focuses very clearly on the latter.
The PowerCore+ 26800 is one of the few battery packs on the market with USB-C Power Delivery up to 27W. That means it can charge a 12" MacBook at nearly full speed, a Nintendo Switch at full power while you’re playing Zelda on a plane, or an iPad Pro significantly faster than the charger it came with (if you have a USB-C to Lightning cable).
Power Delivery works both ways too, so you can actually recharge the entire battery pack in just 4.5 hours with the included 27W USB-C wall charger, compared to over 11 hours with a standard 2A USB charger. When you’re trying to juice up before a flight, every minute counts.
The PowerCore+ also includes two high speed standard USB ports that you can use simultaneously, which is good, because this thing has enough power to share. We had a hands on with the pack when it launched back in April, and you can see our impressions here.
This battery almost always sells for $110, and $87 is the best price we’ve ever seen.
iClever’s new folding Bluetooth keyboard is the only mobile keyboard I’ve ever actually enjoyed using, and a great investment for anyone that needs to work on an airplane, or just wants to get some typing done at the coffee shop without lugging around a laptop.
It’s a bargain at its usual $30, but for a limited time, promo code TMTFT97H will knock that down to $24.
Giant plugs that cover up half the outlets on your power strip should be outlawed, but until that day arrives, these short extension cords will have to do. $14 gets you a pack of 10, which should be enough for even the most advanced home theater setups.
There have been a lot of deals lately on Apple’s W1-equipped Beats headphones, but $100 for a pair of BeatsX is an all-time low, and a fantastic deal for iPhone owners that want an AirPods-like pairing experience on a budget.
“The Beats X are the third product from Beats (and the fourth from all of Apple) to use the new W1 Bluetooth chipset. This Apple-designed chipset should allow for better battery life. It also makes pairing with an Apple device a total snap—as long as your iPhone runs iOS 10.1 or higher. All I had to do to pair was turn the Beats X and bring them near my phone. A ‘Connect’ button instantly popped up and I was off—music ready to be heard wirelessly.”
With its ability to work on any surface, including glass, the Logitech MX Anywhere mouse has always been a reader favorite. And today, you can save on its sequel.
All the features you know and love from the original are still here, but the MX Anywhere 2S adds in Logitech’s new FLOW cross-computer control, which lets you use one mouse to control multiple computers at once, and even copy and paste content between them. Even if you never use that feature though, it’s a great mouse with 70 day battery life, a best-in-class sensor, and easy Bluetooth or USB pairing to up to three devices. Not bad for $58.
Update: Back in stock, now for $118. Other than that very short-lived $91 deal (mistake?) yesterday, that’s an all-time low.
If you’re still listening to your TV through its built-in speakers, listen up: This highly-rated Sony sound bar and wireless subwoofer for just $91 right now, an all-time low, and over $100 (!!!) less than usual. In fact, I don’t think we’ve ever seen a sound bar with a discrete wireless subwoofer for under $100, let alone one from a brand like Sony.
In addition to delivering rich audio from your TV, the sound bar includes Bluetooth so you can stream music from your phone on the fly, and even NFC for easy device pairing. Today’s deal also happens to be the lowest price we’ve ever seen by about $30, so don’t hesitate to pick this up if you’re in the market for a better aural experience from your home theater.
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!
I’m going to tell you that these $89 truly wireless earbuds with squeeze-to-fit tips, huge battery life, IPX5 waterproofing, and a ton more great features are a fantastic idea and deal. Now I’m going to tell you that the battery case for these earbuds is twice the size of any of the others we’ve seen. It feels cheap and there’s no pocket in existence it would fit in. Do with that information what you will.
Anker makes basically all of our readers’ favorite charging gear, and a bunch of it is on sale today for 20% off or more, no promo codes required.
See all the deals in this post:
The Logitech Harmony Hub is one of the best Alexa-compatible accessories out there, and it basically comes with a free Echo Dot right now.
If you aren’t familiar, the Harmony Hub is a little puck that blasts out RF signals like a TV remote to control all of your devices (Logitech’s database has nearly 300,000; it’s pretty comprehensive). Normally, this would work with a Harmony remote to control devices that are hidden behind cabinet doors, but it’ll also work with just your voice if you own an Alexa device.
So, for example, you could say “Alexa, turn on the TV” to turn on your TV, change to the correct input, turn on your cable box, or whatever else you programmed it to do. The same holds true for your smartphone; just open the Harmony app, and you’ll have full control over your entire home theater.
The Harmony Hub costs about $90 on Amazon (though it’s sometimes bundled with a barebones remote for about $70), but right now, that same amount of money will get you the Hub and an Echo Dot to control it. Or, if you already have all the Echoes you need, just give the Dot away as a holiday gift, and keep the Hub for yourself.
If your computer or phone uses USB-C, it’s worth keeping an adapter around to turn it into an old-school USB 3.0 port for your legacy devices. This space gray aluminum adapter from Nonda is attractive, only $8, about as small as these things can possibly be.
You don’t need to sell a kidney to afford noise-cancelling Bluetooth headphones; these 4 star-rated Cowin E-7s are just $40 right now, or $30 off with promo code 9H9778YO.
They might not have the brand recognition of Sony or Bose, but these headphones pack in 30 hours of battery life, and yes, active noise cancellation that reviewers say works really well.

The ultimate gift for the person who has everything is 25% off for the first time ever today with promo code JXRW4K5Q.
Power Practical’s Sparkr is a 400 lumen flashlight, an LED camping lantern, and a badass plasma lighter all rolled into one. I suspect you’re most interested in the third item on that list, so let’s dive in:
Just press one button, and an electric arc forms on the backside of of the flashlight that can light small items on fire, even in the wind. This spark is created with the same battery that powers the light, so unlike a traditional lighter, there’s no butane required. That makes it handy for camping, backyard s’mores nights, or just lighting candles around the house. Plus, it’s just cool as hell, nobody denies this.
Update: Calphalon roasting pan is already sold out, but they still have good deals on other kitchen essentials.
Thanksgiving is next Thursday so if you’re in need of cooking tools to get the job done, Amazon is here to help you out today. The stand out product in this Gold Box is the Calphalon Roasting Pan with rack. Normally selling for around $70, this pan is just $29 after you clip the coupon.
Just in time for Thanksgiving, snag some bakeware pieces that might need to pull off the big meal. This deal includes a ceramic baking dish selling at its all-time-low price of just $14, a pie dish that can be used to make two half pies at once, and a toaster-oven-sized bakeware set including muffin tin, cookie sheet, and cake pan.
First, the ceramic dish - normally selling for $18, this dish would be perfect for stuffing or green bean casserole and looks nice enough that you could bring it to the table to serve out of too.
Next, we’ll talk about the pie pan. As long as the two pies have similar bake times, the separator in the middle (which can be removed as well for a full-size pie) allows you cook two totally different pies at the same time. It’s not the lowest price ever, but this pie pan normally floats around the $11 - $12 price range but is just $9 today. Also, just to note, it’s an add-on item.
Lastly, the toaster oven bakeware set. Your toaster oven can really come to the rescue on big holidays like this when the regular-sized oven is already full of turkey. These mini bakeware pieces can bake rolls, roast vegetables, or keep smaller dishes warm while your big oven is working away.
Add about 40 feet of LED string lights into your life for just $5 with code NGEOJPAK. They plug in via USB port so you can take advantage of those USB wall ports you’ve been buying (or buy some more for $14 with code ICWALL77). This is an extremely good deal for two sets and might make your home’s holiday decor look that much better.
Put a lid on almost anything with this 7 pack of silicone stretch lids. They expand over your bowls, pans, and containers to create an air-tight, leak-proof seal and are way easier than using sticky plastic wrap. They’re dishwasher safe and the reviews on these are pretty solid. At $14 today, this is the rock-bottom price we’ve seen so it shouldn’t too much of a stretch on your wallet.
If you didn’t take advantage of the first aid kit deal we posted last week, pick up this larger 130-piece set for just $16 with code PMYHZA9L. It’s full of bandages, scissors, anti-bacterial wipes, even a glow stick and compass so it will really come in handy during emergencies and is perfect to store in your car. This kit normally sells for $23 so at $16 today, you won’t feel like it cost you an arm and leg.
Unfortunately, there aren’t actually any adult coloring books included in the sale, but there are some markers and colored pencils designed just for them, in addition to construction paper, tracing pads, Crayola Dough, and a lot more. A few highlights are below, but head over to Amazon to see the rest.
Laser light projectors are the easiest way to decorate for the holidays. No ladders and no untangling light strands required. This Star Shower Motion projector has red and green lights that dance around your house in varying patterns (watch videos of them in action) and it will automatically turn on when it gets dark.
Update: There’s now a $15 coupon you can clip, which brings it down to $47. I think I can count on one hand the number of times we’ve seen a SodaStream for under $50.
Some people can’t live without their coffee, but for me, it’s fizzy water. While supplies last, you can get a SodaStream Source from Amazon for $62, complete with a small starter CO2 canister, and a mail-in rebate for a free full-sized starter canister. If you regularly buy soda or carbonated water at the store, it’ll pay for itself.
The Gerber Dime packs eight tools into a keychain-sized multitool that’s less than 3" long when closed, and you can grab one for $15 from Amazon today. Even if you don’t need it for yourself, it’d make a great stocking stuffer.
Gerber’s 4.4 star-rated paraframe knife features a unique handle that keeps weight to a minimum, and a deal that keeps its price to a minimum as well. These would make great stocking stuffers, just be sure they’re closed before you put them in the stockings.
To make your clothes last longer, you should be probably be avoiding the dryer altogether, especially for sweaters. As drying sweaters on a hanger can cause them to stretch out, this $8 hanging sweater dryer clips on to the bar in your closet and provides some surface area to lay down sweaters to dry flat. It’s down from its normal $11 price tag, so pick one up today, your sweaters will thank you.
Our readers have bought thousands of OxyLED’s T-02 motion-sensing light strips over the years, but if you’ve found them to be to annoying to charge, the T-04 is a great upgrade.
Like the T-02, the T-04 can attach to basically any surface via the included adhesive strips, and will automatically light up when it detects motion in the dark. The main difference is the battery: rather than charging AAAs or plugging in a microUSB cable, the T-04's battery pack is fully detachable, and plugs directly into any USB charging port. I have a couple of these set up around my apartment, and they work extremely well.
If you’re the type to carry around a blade on the daily, you’ll be happy to know your options just got even more portable. Like, keychain levels of portable. Snag the excellent WESN Titanium Microblade for 40 bucks with a Kickstarter preorder.
The WESN has already sliced and diced its funding goal many times over, and also acts as a bottle opener and screwdriver.
If you like the idea of magnetic smartphone car mounts, but don’t want to block a precious air vent, this $9 gadget applies the same principle to your obsolete CD slot. No, I don’t know why there’s a flower pattern on the magnet, but it’s not like you’ll see it when your phone is mounted in place.
With just a few pumps, the Misto olive oil sprayer can turn your favorite olive oil (or any other cooking oil, for that matter), into an aerosol, making it easy to give salads and meats a quick spritz, or to grease a pan if you run out of cooking spray. I own one of these, and use it all the time.
For starters, the $44 Luminoodle Task USB is 2' long, flexible, magnetic, weatherproof, and puts out 1000 lumens, which is shocking for a USB-powered device.
For $119, you can upgrade to the full-sized Luminoodle Task, which is over twice as long and over three times as bright, but you’ll have to plug it into an AC outlet.
And for the most flexibility of all, $169 gets you a preorder of the Task Link, which is an AC-powered set of three lights that are that you link together to light up an entire room.
All three models are flexible like giant fettuccine noodles, and can stand up to rain, mount to different surfaces in multiple ways, and are controlled by an included remote. Earlybirds are already going fast though, so don’t let the lights go out on these prices.

Their magnetic face mask blew up across blogs and Instagram stories, and right now you can pick it up, plus anything else you could need, for 45% off with the code VIP45.
Having the proper footwear is the difference between spending the day working and spending the day in the Emergency Room. If you’ve been living dangerously lately, why not invest in a pair of work boots that won’t have you fighting for workers’ comp? Amazon is marking down work and safety boots to under $100, but it’s today only, so you should probably get to work.
You’re never going to remember to floss consistently. And that’s okay! But investing in a water flosser will encourage you to clean between your teeth, and this one from VAVA is only $20 today, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on a product like this.
Burt’s Bees may be known for their tingling clear lip balm, but their tinted version is far superior. I swear by this stuff because it’s the perfect marriage of color and comfort. It’s not too harsh, like the normal Burt’s Bees balm can be, but the color payoff is just enough. Use the code at checkout 20BURTSBEES and get 20% off any shade you want (I recommend Red Dahlia, and it’s also on sale).
Note: You can save even more if you sign up for Subscribe & Save.
Amazon wants you to smell good despite the holiday-stress-induced sweat with these discounted multi-pack deodorants. See deodorant deals below. We’ve calculated the sale price, but you won’t be able to see the discount until checkout.
- 6 pack of men’s Degree deodorant, Cool Rush scent, $9 (exclusive to Prime members)
- 6 pack of women’s Degree antiperspirant, Shower Clean scent, $9
- 6 pack of men’s Right Guard Extreme Defense, Fresh Blast scent, $16
- 4 pack of women’s Degree antiperspirant, Pure clean scent, $8
Continuing in the grand tradition of Kickstarter wallets, the FOCX Everyday Wallet packs a ton of cards into a clever, minimal package.
The FOCX is basically split into two compartments: One that loads from either side, and another that loads from the top, with a pull-tab to get your cards back out. The idea is that your most-used cards and cash go into the former, while up to 10 other cards can squeeze into the latter, but you can arrange things however you want. Most of the wallet is made of elastic to hold everything in place, but it’s accented by a wide strip of leather to lend it a more premium feel than, say, a TGT wallet.
There’s only about a week left in the campaign, but you can still order a FOCX for about $28, with estimated delivery in February.
“No-iron shirts” have been around for so long that it seems almost ridiculous to buy anything else. Twillory takes that notion one step further by taking that no-iron notion and adding a bespoke feel.
Their holiday deals aren’t officially live yet, but they’re giving our readers early access with the following codes:
- Two shirts for $89 with code SAVE2 (~$45 per shirt)
- Four shirts for $169 with code SAVE4 (~$42 per shirt)
- Five shirts for $199 with code SAVE5 (~$40 per shirt)
Those codes should work with all the shirts they sell, so mix, match, and get creative. Shane reviewed these shirts over on Gear, so head over there to learn about what makes them so great.
TOP MEDIA DEALS
At $8 per month for Prime members, Amazon Music Unlimited was already more affordable than Spotify Premium or Apple Music, but Amazon’s sweetening the pot for new members by offering three months for just $1, for a limited time.
This is one of the best deals they’ve ever offered on the service, so if you haven’t signed up for Music Unlimited before, what’s $.33 per month to try it out?
