Today’s Best Tech Deals

Anker speakers are a tremendous value, a reader favorite, and, today only, discounted as part of Amazon’s Gold Box. Choose from three portable Soundcore models (Soundcore 2, Boost, and Flare), each at their lowest price ever.

The Soundcore 2 and Boost are traditional, Bluetooth, water-resistant speakers, with the Boost offering more power, and Soundcore 2 offering a 24 hour battery. The Soundcore Flare comes in a pair, and you can either use them separately, or link them together for wireless stereo audio. They even have a ring of RGB LEDs at the bottom for some added, uh, flare. For the the Flare, make sure to clip the coupon on the page to get the best price.


TCL 65R617 65" TV | $830 | Walmart

TCL’s affordable 6-series TVs are famous for offering every form of HDR (including top-shelf Dolby Vision), local dimming zones for better contrast and black levels, and even excellent Roku software. So if you want to upgrade before March Madness kicks off in a few weeks, the 65" model just dropped to a new all-time low price of $830, which is actually $100 cheaper than we saw on Black Friday.


Any competitive gamer worth her salt considers three main things when shopping for a monitor: refresh rate, response time, and price. This $170 Dell D2719HGF delivers on all three.

This 27-inch LED monitor offers a 144Hz refresh rate and fast 2ms response time thanks to its TN panel. Sure 1ms would have been nicer but if you’re on a budget, this one is hard to pass it up.

Side note: This one is listed as FreeSync, but a few sources show that it’s compatible with G-Sync after an update.


Aukey Compact Dual USB Wall Charger | $6 | Amazon | Promo code AUKEYZP2

This tiny, $6 USB charger isn’t much bigger than the one that ships with every iPhone, except it has two ports, folding prongs, and 2.4A of total power, compared to the 1A Apple gives you. No surprise, it’s one of our top sellers of all time. Just use promo code AUKEYZP2 to get the deal.


SoundPEATS TrueFree True Wireless Earbuds | $22 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

It took about two years, but we’ve reached the point where true wireless earbuds are an affordable commodity, rather than an expensive luxury. These SoundPEATS TrueFree earbuds have solid Amazon reviews, and include a battery charging case for extended playtime, just like the sets from the big name brands. Cut the cord for just $22 today with promo code TZ87AW4S. Just don’t expect them to become a status symbol meme like AirPods.


Dual Arm Monitor Stand Full Motion | $50 | Amazon | Promo code 2WSTMQXD

So you’ve got two monitors now, like the omnipotent hacker or cokehead stockbroker archetypes from the movies. Congrats! But the effect isn’t truly complete until you mount those monitors to arms that let you move and articulate them in any direction, depending on the situation. This gas spring mount holds two screens up to 14.3 pounds each, and it’s an absolute steal at $39 with promo code 2WSTMQXD.


Nebula Capsule | $255 | Amazon

Anker, as you probably know by now, makes a lot of products. But I don’t think any of them are as ambitious as the Nebula Capsule, a surprisingly good portable projector shrunk down to the size of a soda can.

At this size, the Capsule is obviously not as bright as a projector you’d permanently mount to your ceiling, and its standard definition resolution won’t dazzle, but it can run for hours on a charge, and has great audio built in, making it ideal for an impromptu outdoor movie night, or even as a replacement for your bedroom TV. I’ve played around with it, and you can see all of my thoughts here.

For a limited time, the Capsule is marked down to $255 on Amazon, down from the usual $300. And if you want a brighter, sharper projector, the Nebula Mars II is still on sale for $390, as we mentioned last week.


Today’s Best Home Deals

Brother P-Touch Label Maker | $15 | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

That love interest of yours might not be so into labels, but we here at The Inventory are very into labels, and label makers, and slapping labels on all the things everywhere. And you don’t even have to have a type-A personality to know the pure, unbridled joy that comes with organizing your life with personalized fancy stickers, because this high-tech Brother Label Maker is down to $15 on Amazon today. With the exception of some very short-lived $10 deals, that’s the best price we’ve seen. The full keyboard makes it easy to use, and you can store up to 30 labels for easy re-printing—hence why we’d label this a great deal, and your non-committal S.O. a jerk.


Dyson V8 Absolute | $350 | Amazon | Also at Walmart
Photo: Amazon

Unless you live in a very large house, Dyson’s V8 cordless vacuum is probably the only vacuum you need. While it lasts for Prime Day, you can get the Absolute model for just $350 from Amazon (also available at Walmart), the best price we’ve seen since Black Frida. The Absolute features the longest battery life in the V8 line, and comes with the most accessories. Trust us, it’s worth the splurge.


Mpow Projection Alarm Clock | $18 | Amazon | Promo code MPOW0353

Sure, your phone’s alarm will wake you up on time, but it doesn’t include an FM radio, it won’t function as a nightstand USB charger, and it definitely can’t project the current time onto your wall or ceiling. For a limited time, you can save $9 on this alarm clock with code MPOW0353.


Tacklife Multimeter | $6 | Amazon | Promo code M2UAA4EY

You might not need a multimeter very often, but for $6 (with promo code M2UAA4EY), it’s not a bad idea to add one to your toolbox. It sure beats electrocuting yourself and dying horribly!


Bamboo Mattress Pad with Fitted Skirt | $45-$59 | Amazon | 50% off with promo code SAVE50PADS

You don’t necessarily need to buy a new mattress to get a better night’s sleep: Sometimes, a mattress pad will do, and this popular one has a 50% coupon on Amazon today.

Unlike most mattress pads, these ExceptionalSheets bamboo mattress pads are stuffed with Revoloft synthetic fill, which should feel a lot like down, but without the associated allergies and poking feathers. They also feature a hypoallergenic bamboo cover. Prices range from just $45-$59 today after you use 50% off promo code SAVE50PADS, depending on the size. We aren’t sure how long the coupon will be around though, so you probably shouldn’t sleep on it.


Silicone Trivets | $4 | ThermoWorks
Graphic: ThermoWorks

ThermoWorks is best known for its industry-leading kitchen thermometers, but did you know they also make silicone trivets? They’re dishwasher safe, can withstand temperatures up to 600 degrees, and can double as makeshift pot holders. Normally priced at $6, they’re marked down to under $4 today. There is $4 flat rate shipping through, so maybe buy several.


Bonavita BV1901TS Coffee Maker | $100 | Massdrop
Graphic: Shep McAllister

At first glance, the Bonavita BV1901 TS looks like your run of the mill drip coffee maker, but it has a few premium touches that make it worth the price. First and foremost, its 1500W heating element brings water up to temperature much faster than your average Mr. Coffee (assuming your home’s wiring can handle it). A special pre-infusion mode also saturates freshly ground beans before brewing to lock in flavor, and its showerhead distributes water evenly across the beans to maximize concentration.

The BV1901TS typically sells for somewhere between $120 and $150, but today on Massdrop, it’s just $100.


HiLife Travel Steamer | $12 | Amazon | Promo code 5DEVYX59
Photo: Amazon

Ironing takes forever, but steaming gets you most of the way there in a fraction of the time. At just $12 with promo code 5DEVYX59, this steamer hets up in two minutes or less, and provides 15 minutes of wrinkle-releasing steam per tank of water, so you can get through several shirts and pants at once.

This model’s a little bigger than some travel-friendly options we’ve seen, but if you don’t see yourself packing a steamer in your suitcase anyway, $12 is a terrific price.


Turtle Tumbler | $20 | Amazon | Promo code KINJATURTLE1
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Vacuum insulated stainless steel is almost always the correct choice when it comes to drinkware, whether you want to keep a hot drink hot or a cold drink cold, without transferring those extreme temperatures to your hands.

This newly released 20 ounce Turtle tumbler is produced in the same factory that makes YETI tumblers, but at $20 with promo code KINJATURTLE1, it’s a lot cheaper, and doesn’t have any branding to speak of save for a small logo on the bottom.


Sparkr Mini | $17 | Amazon

Plasma lighters are the lighter, evolved. They can light things on fire while fixing the three biggest problems with traditional lighters:

  1. Fuel - This lighter doesn’t need fuel; you recharge it over USB. How cool is that?
  2. Wind - Since it’s using tiny electrical coils to create heat rather than an open flame, it can’t be blown out.
  3. Orientation - You can use a plasma lighter upside down without burning your fingers, which makes lighting candles a lot easier.

We covered the Sparkr Mini here, and now you can get the 2.0 version of the lighter for just $17 right now, within a few bucks of the best price we’ve seen. That’s a few bucks more than some other electric lighters out there, but the Sparkr Mini is one of the most compact models out there, featuring two criss-crossing arcs for a more reliable spark, a built-in flashlight, and an extremely satisfying, clicky flip top.

Most of its dodgy Amazon reviews focus on the fact that the flashlight could turn itself on in your pocket, but that’s been fixed in this 2.0 version by switching it to a three button press. This model also uses a different frequency to eliminate the high-pitched buzzing that’s commonplace with these products.

Today’s Best Lifestyle Deals

$30 Off Orders of $150 or More | Nike | Promo code SPORT30
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Nike is one of the most desirable workout-wear brands, but quality gear often comes at a price. But thanks to a deal Nike’s running through February 23, don’t sweat the cost of a new Nike wardrobe. Now, take $30 off orders of $150 or more with promo code SPORT30, and treat yourself to a new pair of cool sneakers, or just some new athletic apparel to make hitting the gym that much more exciting.


Ray-Ban Flash Sale | Nordstrom Rack
Image: Nordstrom Rack

Sure, it’s not the ideal time of year to be hanging out outdoors, but good sunglasses are timeless. And there’s no better time than now to slide on a brand new pair of Ray-Ban shades from Nordstrom Rack, since the iconic eyewear brand is having its day in the sun with half off a wide selection styles. Now don’t be shady; shop this deal now so you’re ready when that springtime sunshine comes out of hibernation.


Did you know National Lash Day is a thing? Me neither! Don’t question it though, because Ulta is marking the occasion by taking up to 50% off a range of mascaras, cruelty-free false lashes, and lash-boosting sample items. Plus, with a $25 purchase, your entitled to a free, lash-focused three-piece mystery gift, along with other free gift with purchase opportunities. So, if there’s something you have your eye on, buy it now; this one-day deal will be gone in the blink of an eye.


Men’s and Women’s Frye Flash Event | Nordstrom Rack
Image: Nordstrom Rack

Cold temperatures call for footwear that covers as much of your leg as possible. Luckily, Nordstrom Rack is here for your calves’ warmth with a major Frye Flash Event. Men’s and women’s shoes — including those classic Frye boots — are up to 50% off. Rest assured, these items can all stand up to winter weather, but they won’t stick around long, so shop soon.


Up to 50% Off Past Season Styles | Marmot
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Despite the recent prediction of a certain groundhog, it still very much feels like winter outside — which is why you should take advantage of Marmot’s sale on a flurry of items that are from “last season.” Like good ol’ Punxsutawney Phil (and many other brands), the outdoor retailer has declared that spring is here, so they’re taking up to 50% off jackets, vest, snow gear, and more for men, women, and kids. The discounted stock is noted by the word “save” across the color square on the product page, and — spoiler alert — you’ll probably still get a whole lot of use out of any on-sale stuff, even though it’s technically so last season.


T3 Featherweight Compact Folding Dryer | $119 | Sephora
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Bringing a hair dryer along on your travels isn’t usually an option. But with these T3 Featherweight Compact Hair Dryers, now on sale at Sephora for $119 in both black and white, it’s totally feasible. These dryers fold up and come with a travel tote and cord wrap for easy transportation. Not to mention, it’s super light, so not only it is easy to carry around, it also makes drying your hair less of hassle (let’s be honest, hair drying can be a pretty serious arm workout). And while they may be small, these high quality dryers are as mighty as they come, thanks to T3 Tourmaline SoftAire technology that blasts out a high volume of ion-enriched air for a quick dry, more shine, and less frizz.

Or, if you’re in the market for a full-sized ionic dryer, T3's Cura model is also on sale for $179, down from $235. So don’t write this deal off as being full of hot air; it’s a blowout you won’t want to miss.

Today’s Best Media Deals

Anime Month Sale | Amazon
Screenshot: Tercius Bufete

Today, Amazon is offering big discounts on over dozen anime titles on Blu-ray, including Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, FLCL, Samurai Champloo, and a few individual Dragon Ball and One Piece seasons.

Apparently, the sale is for Anime Month, which is to honor all of the brave, Anime characters we lost in the great Anime Wars of the Early ‘90s. Never forget, never stop yelling.


H&R Block Deluxe + State | $18 | Amazon
H&R Block Premium | $32 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Tax season is upon us, and if H&R Block’s Deluxe + State software is right for you (you can use this tool to find out), Amazon’s currently discounting it to just $18, an all-time low, and way less than the $45 H&R Block charges on its own site.

Deluxe is great for homeowners and anyone with any sort of standard investment income, but you’ll want to step up to Premium if you rent out property or are self-employed. It’s also on sale for $32, an all-time low.

Whichever one you choose, you’ll be able to import your previous years’ taxes from TurboTax if you’re switching over, and you can elect to receive all or some of your refund in the form of an Amazon gift card, with a 5% bonus.

Today’s Best Gaming Deals

Nintendo Switch Pro Controller | $50 | Woot
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, $50 is the best price we’ve ever seen.

If you’re thinking “but I have a pair of Joy-Con and the grip thing. What do I need this for,” know that I felt the same way for a long time. But when I finally caved and bought a Pro controller for a Super Smash get-together a few months ago, there was no turning back. It’s so much more comfortable to hold, and the buttons are so much bigger and nicer to press. I’m angry that I waited so long.

Note: If Woot sells out, Amazon also has it for $57, which is also a great deal.


littleBits R2D2 Droid Inventor Kit | $71 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

While you may mess up a critical plot point of an epic franchise, you can pick up this droid littleBits set and make your own R2 unit the way you want. These sets are basically like if LEGO and K’nex had a baby and added a battery and a kid-friendly coding app. $71 is within $4 of an all-time low.

Deals You May Have Missed

Amazon Fire 7 Tablet | $40 | Amazon
Amazon Fire HD 8 Tablet | $60 | Amazon
Amazon Fire HD 10 Tablet | $120 | Amazon

While today’s deals aren’t nearly as good as Black Friday, if you’re in the market for a cheap, serviceable tablet, that’s exactly how we’d describe the Amazon Fire 7, Fire HD 8 and Fire HD 10. Are they as nice or as powerful as an iPad Pro? Of course not. But they’re nice-looking internet-connected screens that you can hold in your hand or set on the counter while you cook, which is all most of us need a tablet to be.


Aukey 4-Port Charger | $16 | Amazon | Promo code AUKEYPT7

Between phones, tablets, wearables, e-readers, and battery packs, you probably have at least four devices that you need to keep charged when you’re traveling, and this portable charger from Aukey can juice them all up for just $16 with promo code AUKEYPT7. It even has foldable prongs to take up less space in your luggage.


Philips Hue White Ambiance Bulb | $24 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Full RGB color light bulbs are fun, but most Hue owners primarily use their lights to glow in different temperatures of white. Daylight is great for stimulating you throughout the day, while warmer shades of white can help ease you to sleep in the evening.

Philips makes a Hue bulb specifically designed for this, and it’s down to $24 on Amazon today, a $6 discount.


iLife V3S Robotic Vacuum | $112 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

It might not have the name recognition of a Roomba, but this iLife robotic vacuum packs in much of the same features in a crazy affordable $112 price tag.

The V3s Pro has a scheduling function, a remote control, a low profile design, and some pretty great Amazon reviews. Just note, this is designed for hard wood floors and thinner area rugs, not high pile carpets. Today’s price will only lasts through the end of the day or until all of these are sucked up, so I wouldn’t hesitate.


Nathan James Doxa Coffee Table | $72 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

Don’t love your coffee table? This minimalist, mid-century modern Nathan James table is down to an all-time low $72 on Amazon, and they’ll ship it to you for free. Just use a damn coaster!


Pinty Oversized LED Clock | $76 | Amazon | Clip the 5% coupon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

This giant clock has some extra features like a countdown mode, a stopwatch, and even a thermometer, but it’s okay if you never get around to using them. It’s a giant digital clock, it looks awesome, and it’s as cheap as we’ve ever seen right now after you clip the 5% coupon. That’s enough.


Solimo 5mg Melatonin Gummies - 120 Count | $8 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If it’s your dream to get some solid shut-eye for once in your life, why not give melatonin gummies a try? You can get these strawberry-flavored ones by Solimo for just $8 on Amazon today (or a little more if you don’t want to use Subscribe & Save). Not to mention, they’re gluten-free, wheat-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and egg-free.

If nothing else, you should keep them handy for overnight flights and other particularly challenging sleep situations.


LEGO Women of NASA | $16 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

LEGO’s Women of NASA won’t stay in orbit forever, so you might want to grab it while you can for an all-time low $16. It includes Margaret Hamilton, who wrote the code that guided the Apollo missions, Nancy G. Roman, “the mother of Hubble,” and the first woman and first African American woman in space, Sally Ride and Mae Jemison.


Super Mario Maker 2 | $55 | Amazon
Screenshot: Amazon

Amazon’s $10 video game preorder credits seem to have gone the way of the dodo, but that doesn’t mean you can’t save a few bucks. Super Mario Maker 2 for Switch is discounted to $56 right now, and a $1.13 coupon brings it down to $55. That’s not a huge price drop, obviously, but as far as first party Nintendo games go, it’s solid. Let’s a-go.


LG 29" Ultrawide IPS Display with HDR and FreeSync | $200 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Can an ultrawide monitor replace your dual monitor setup? It depends on what you’re trying to do, but the short answer is “probably.”

Whitson Gordon recommended this very LG monitor as a great budget option in this post for about $300, but today, you’ll only need to pay $200, within about $20 of an all-time low. Not bad for a 29", 2560 x 1080 IPS display with support for HDR10 and FreeSync.


Seagate FireCuda 2TB | $85 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

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.


Ansel Adams 2019 Wall Calendar | $5 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Full disclosure: I’m more of a Henri Cartier-Bresson guy than an Ansel Adams bro. But I’m still going to buy this $5 wall calendar spotlighting the works of one of the greatest photographers to ever live.

(Look, I can appreciate Adams’ technical mastery, but pretty things are pretty. Who cares? *shrug* Am I missing something? Rocks and clouds aren’t anything.)


First Order Heavy Assault Walker Lego Set | $110 | Walmart
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Stomp down the Resistance with this First Order Heavy Assault Walker Lego Set. Down to $110 today at Walmart, this 1376-piece building kit is about $40 off regular pricing.


Samsung 49" Q6FN QLED TV | $580 | Massdrop
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Samsung’s high-end QLED TVs get a lot of attention, but even the entry level Q6 models look phenomenal, and you can get a 49" set today for $580 from Massdrop. That’s $220 less than the current going rate, and $120 less than we saw on Black Friday .

Compared to Q-sets higher up the lineup, the Q6 loses out on (admittedly impressive) features like full array local dimming and Samsung’s higher-end HDR engine, but thanks to the quantum dot tech, it’ll still look better than pretty much any conventional LED TV.


Nintendo Switch + $35 eShop Credit | $300 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you still don’t have a Nintendo Switch, but the Mario Maker 2 and Links Awakening put you over the top yesterday, you can now get $35 worth of Nintendo eShop credit for free when you buy a console. With so many great Nintendo first party and indie games available on the eShop, you should have no trouble spending it.

Note: The page says preorder, but it should ship today or tomorrow.


Howdy, partner. Red Dead Redemption 2 hasn’t had any trouble selling copies, so if you’ve been waiting for months for a decent discount, it’s finally down to $40 today on both PS4 and Xbox One. That’s practically a robbery.


VPNs have been in the news, and whether you want to get around video geoblocks to watch Love Island on British Netflix, 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.

Private Internet Access doesn’t do much in the way of discounting, but they offer exclusive pricing and packages just for our readers that you won’t find anywhere else. Here are your options, and what you’d pay if you bought the same plan elsewhere:
