TODAY’S BEST TECH DEALS

SanDisk’s 500GB Extreme Portable External SSD is marked down to an absurdly low price today on Amazon. Not everyone needs these, but they’re spacious, rugged, compact, and compared to most flash drives, extremely fast.

This $100 rugged drive is water, dust and shock-resistant and future-proof thanks to its USB-C connection. It also comes with an attachment to plug it into standard USB.


Refurb LG B8 2018 OLED 55" TV | $1149 | Walmart

LG’s OLED TVs have achieved something of a cult status thanks to their inky dark black levels and vibrant colors, and today, you can score the best prices we’ve seen on the 2018 B8 models with a couple of refurb discounts on the 55" and 65" sets.

The picture quality should be nearly identical to 2017's ultra-popular LG sets (which is a good thing!), but the 2018 models include LG’s ThinQ voice assistant and support for HFR (high frame rate video) up to 120 FPS. HFR content doesn’t really exist yet, but a few movies are expected to come to streaming services starting later this year, so if you’re planning on using the TV for several years, it might be worth it for future-proofing purposes.

Walmart has the refurbished 55" marked down to $1,149, and the 65" to $1,749, complete with a full one year warranty.


Anker SoundCore Infini 35" Sound Bar | $68 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Anker makes a sound bar now, which...yeah, that makes sense. It’s 35" and features two integrated subwoofers for 2.1 channel audio inside a single box. And naturally, it’ll also work as a gigantic Bluetooth speaker, when it isn’t pumping audio out of your TV.

Normally priced at $80 (or $100 last year), it’s marked down to an all-time low $68 right now, for a limited time.


Apple Magic Trackpad | $114 | Amazon

Say what you will about Apple, but there’s no denying they have trackpads down to a science. If you want to use their patented multitouch gestures on your desktop Mac, or with your laptop in clamshell mode, Amazon’s currently taking $15 off the standalone (and enormous) Magic Trackpad. At $114, it’s still not cheap, but it’s really the only product of its kind in existence.


15" MacBook Pro 512GB SSD, 6-Core i7 | $2400 | Amazon | Clip the $175 coupon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

You probably don’t need a big, honking 15" MacBook Pro unless you’re doing professional, processor-intensive work that benefits from a big screen. But if that happens to describe you, Amazon’s offering the latest model for $2,400, or $400 less than buying from Apple.

To get the deal, you’ll need to clip the $175 coupon on the page, which combined with Amazon’s $225 list price discount, gets you to $400 off. There seem to be a couple of bugs though, so be careful. For some reason, it told me I wasn’t eligible for the coupon, and it also showed two coupons on the page (one of which wouldn’t actually clip), but once I got to checkout, the deal applied properly.


Anker PowerStrip Pad | $29 | Amazon

Anker’s newest compact power strip can stick to your wall or the underside of your desk thanks to the included adhesive, and has every power connection you could need. We’re talking two AC outlets, two 12W USB ports with Anker’s PowerIQ tech, and even a USB-C port with 30W Power Delivery for laptops, Nintendo Switches, and other high-draw devices. Get it for $29 today, down from the usual $36.

TODAY’S BEST HOME DEALS

Reepow Hoodie Blanket (Blue and Red) | $30 | Amazon | Promo code 45LB2M3M
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Sometimes, wrapping yourself in a cocoon of blankets is simply not enough. In those moments, reach for this cozy, reversible Reepow Hoodie Blanket — literally, a blanket you can wear — now just $30 with promo code 45LB2M3M.

This oversized sweatshirt-blanket is one-size-fits-all and long enough to cover a good portion of your lets. One side features super soft sherpa material, while the other features flannel in either navy or red, but both sides have a handy front pocket in which to store your phone, or just your hands. It will definitely replace all your regular, non-hooded and/or sleeveless throw blankets and hey, maybe even your clothes, too — no judgement.

Photo: Firstleaf

Firstleaf is an online wine club that learns your preferences, offers tons of options, and most importantly, saves you money compared to buying from the store. It’s a solid deal any time, but it’s even better for our readers right now.

Every new Firstleaf member gets an introductory delivery with six bottles of wine for just $40 with free shipping, and every box thereafter includes six bottles for $80, plus $10 shipping. But if you use this link and promo code Kinja when you sign up, you’ll get FREE shipping on every box for your entire first year. That’ll save you over $100 if you get a new box every month.

AmazonBasics 8-Sheet Cross-Cut Shredder | $28 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Sadly, we live in a world where you need a shredder (or at least a stamp, but probably a shredder). You probably get pieces of mail every other day that contain enough personally identifying information to give identity thieves a head start on ruining your life, so shredding is the tax we all pay to protect ourselves.

This 8-sheet cross-cut shredder from AmazonBasics is more than robust enough for home use, and even has a dedicated credit card slot (just don’t try putting one of those metal cards through). I have this exact model, and it works really well, especially for the price. Get it today for $28, down from the usual $35.


KitchenAid Food Grinder Attachment | $26 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

Any burger lover worth their salt knows that grinding your own meat is absolutely essential if you want the best possible results, and if you already own a KitchenAid, you can add a grinder for just $26 today.

Want to control exactly how much fat is in your burger? Want to create beer and chorizo blends? Want to stuff your own sausages (with an extra adapter)? This is a no-brainer kitchen purchase.

Eufy RoboVac Refurbishment Kit | $22 | Amazon | Promo code EUFY2909
Eufy RoboVac 12 | $200 | Amazon | Promo code EUFYRVC2
Eufy RoboVac 11s | $180 | Amazon | White with no promo code, black with code KJT21081

I know for a fact that a lot of you have bought Anker’s Eufy RoboVacs. So if your brushes and filters are starting to look a little worn out, you can save $8 on the official refurbishment kit today with promo code EUFY2909. Just note that it’s only compatible with the RoboVac 11S and newer models.

Don’t have a RoboVac yet? The new RoboVac 12 is on sale for just $200 right now with promo code EUFYRVC2, or opt for the slightly less powerful RoboVac 11s for $180. That price is valid on the white model without a code, or the black model with our exclusive promo code KJT21081.


LED Desk Lamp with 10,000mAh Battery | $34 | Daily Steals | Promo code KJLAMP
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Desk lamps sure are more advanced than they used to be. This model (down to $34 with promo code KJLAMP) has every feature but the kitchen sink. Three different light temperatures, four dimming levels, two USB charging ports, and even a 10,000mAh battery that can power it for up to eight hours without a power outlet. Now you can burn the midnight oil anywhere you’d like, and keep your phone at 100% even as your brain drops to 0%.


Fluke & Amprobe Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Burgeoning electricians, upgrade your toolbox with a number of discounted Fluke and Amprobe multimeters and thermometers. This sale offers the lowest we’ve seen on these particular models, too.

Prices range between $18 to over 200, but the discounts are good today only, so don’t be shocked if the prices jump up tomorrow.


Refurb Dyson Ball Animal Upright Vacuum | $190 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Dyson vacuums dominated the nominations in our Kinja Co-Op for best vacuum, but they can be prohibitively expensive. Today though, refurbs of the popular Dyson Ball Animal are down to $190 on Amazon, or about $85 less than usual.

The Dyson Ball includes a brush that automatically adjusts when you move from carpets to hard floors, a ton of accessory hose tools, including a motorized turbine tool to remove pet hair from furniture, and even a curved tool to help you clean the tops of your ceiling fan blades. And yes, it rests on top of a ball for easy maneuverability. This price is only available today, and will probably sell out early, so get your before they’re all sucked up.

TODAY’S BEST LIFESTYLE DEALS

Ugg fans know that deals on this comfy, cozy footwear are rare, but today, the Ugg Closet has opened up to reveal up to 60% off styles for men, women, and kids — including our favorite Neumel and Harkley boots for guys, and my most beloved sheepskin earmuffs for ladies. Slip your feet into something from this sale quickly though; the closet doors close for who knows how long in less than a week.


Ozark Trail 8-Person Tent | $50 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Grab some friends and find a trail, because this eight-person tent from Ozark Trail is just $50 right now. With room for eight sleeping bags or two queen air mattresses, it includes a built-in mud mat, a removable room divider, and even separate doors for the two rooms so you can come and go without disturbing everyone.

Just don’t forget the snacks!


Sunny cardio equipment Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Your dream, home gym is closer than ever thanks to these discounts from Amazon. Add a rowing machine, a treadmill or two exercise bikes, which in the long run, could save you money over the annual cost of a gym.

These prices come very close or match the lowest prices we’ve seen on these particular models.

Better still, ownership means no more excuses if you don’t want to leave your house. Plus, you get to use your own shower, which is the height of luxury.


Up to 70% Off Clearance | L.L.Bean
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

By now, you’re probably (hopefully) all geared up for winter. But if there are still a few things you need to stave off the cold, or if you’ve got an upcoming outdoor adventure to look forward to, consider stocking up on all things L.L.Bean. Right now through February 13, the retailer is taking up to 70% off select clearance items, so you can bring home Bean Boots, Wicked Good Slippers, winter apparel, gear, or anything else you might need from now until spring arrives.


Rebecca Minkoff Clothing, Handbags, Jewelry, and Shoes | Nordstrom Rack
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Treat yourself to a whole new look courtesy of this major Rebecca Minkoff flash sale, happening now at Nordstrom Rack. You’ll find major savings on clothing, handbags, jewelry and watches, and shoes, all of which exude that feminine-yet-edgy vibe the designer is known for. In fact, the more I sift through this sale, the more I think you (and I) could use a new outfit for Valentine’s Day festivities...


Amika Polished Perfection Straightening Brush | $96 | Sephora
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Using a flat iron to achieve stick-straight strands is time-honored tradition for many wavy- and curly-haired folk. But just because you’re used to doing something one way doesn’t mean there’s no room for improvement. Enter: the Amika Polished Perfection Straightening Brush, a thermal hairbrush that detangles as it straightens, which just...makes sense.

The result is a shiny, ultra sleek ’do in less time, because you’re not putting down your flat iron to pick up your hairbrush, see? And lucky for you, my silky-maned friend, the Amika Straightening brush is just $96 right now, down from it’s usual price of $120. It’s by no means an inexpensive hair tool, but it’s an investment your locks will love you for.



TODAY’S BEST MEDIA DEALS 

4 Months of Amazon Music Unlimited Free for Echo Owners | Amazon | New members only
Image: Amazon

Update: This deal ends today.

Amazon Echo owners are already winners on Game Day this year: Right now, they can get four free months of Amazon Music Unlimited, in celebration of the Super Bowl. The deal only applies to new subscribers and will renew automatically, but if there were ever a reason to start streaming, it’s this sale. If you’re a Prime member, it’ll renew at $8 per month after your four free months, which is cheaper than the likes of Spotify and Apple Music.


Fifty Shades: 3-Movie Collection on Blu-ray | $20 | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Nothing says romance like a weird amount of uncomfortable sex scenes strung together by a plot that barely makes sense! Just in time for Valentine’s Day (and the announcement of E.L. James’ new horny novel), you can bring home all three Fifty Shades movies on Blu-ray for just $20. Perhaps marathon them with your date on February 14 — or definitely don’t do that. Either way, it’s a deal that’s just as, uh, exciting as all that watered-down BDSM action you’re about to watch.

TODAY’S BEST GAMING DEALS

Xbox One Controller | $37 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Xbox One controllers don’t drop to $40 very often, and prices cheaper than that are incredibly rare. So if you missed out on Black Friday, today’s the time to place your order. For $37, you’re getting the newest model with built-in Bluetooth, so it’ll also work with your PC without an adapter.


RepliCade X Centipede Cabinet | $110 | Amazon | Clip the $1 coupon
Graphic: Replicade

Welp, here it is. The ultimate desk toy. This 12" Centipede arcade cabinet is a perfect 1/6 replica of the real thing, and you can get it for an all-time low $110 today on Amazon (after clipping the modest coupon). It launched on Amazon in the middle of last year for $160, and today’s deal is the same price that earlybird (but not super earlybird) Kickstarter backers got in 2017.

DEALS YOU MAY HAVE MISSED

Dell Alienware 17 R5 17.3" Gaming Laptop, Intel Core i7-8750H and GTX 1070 | $1,300 | Adorama via eBay
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Alienware makes some of the best gaming hardware around and this laptop is no exception. This 2018 17R5 laptop uses an Intel Core i7-8750H 2.2GHz, Nvidia GTX 1070 and 16GB of RAM which allows it tackle nearly any game out there right now.

There are a couple drawbacks. It’s screen is only 60hz which isn’t the best for fast-paced competitive gaming and it’s a 10 lb. machine, which makes lugging it around an absolute chore. But if you’re looking for a machine to power an external display and be portable, this is the one.

Of course $1,300 is still a big investment, but for what you’re getting it’s a steal. Oh, and did I mention, it glows in so many places?


GoPro HERO7 Black | $349 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If only the best will do when it comes to capturing all of your daring adventures, the tricked out GoPro HERO7 Black is down to $349 today, which is actually cheaper than Black Friday.

Is that a lot of money? Yes. Does this camera have everything but the kitchen sink? Also yes. We’re talking 4K/60 recording, best-in-class stabilization, live streaming, voice control, and a waterproof body that doesn’t require a separate housing.


And lo, Tile decreed you can replace your own batteries now, and there was much rejoicing. If you’ve been waiting on a good deal for the new Tiles with replaceable batteries, we find some good deals buried in the couch cushions.

If you just want to dip your toes in the water, you can get a single Tile Mate for $20, or $5 less than usual. The four-pack for $50 is a considerably better deal though, if you have enough uses for them (drop your suggestions in the comments!). You can also get a four pack that includes two Mates and two Tile Slims for $50, but just note that the Tile Slims don’t have replaceable batteries.
