If you missed out on the 20% Black Friday and Cyber Monday discount, you can still save $15 on a $100 iTunes gift card from Amazon today with promo code ITUNES15. Use it for apps. Use it for Apple Music. Use it for iCloud storage. It’s basically $15 worth of free content and services that you were going to pay for anyway.


2-Pack ASUS RT-AC68U Routers | $200 | Amazon

Don’t call it a comeback, it’s been here for years—literally. Back in 2016, our readers called the ASUS RT-AC68U their favorite router and it’s only gotten better since. Right now you can get two on Amazon for $200 (an $80 discount).

This two-pack (along with other compatible Asus routers) can work together as a mesh network, like Google Wifi and eero, thanks to AiMesh wizardry. While it won’t win much love for its outmoded design, you’ll find all the features you’d want from a modern network setup, such as app-based management. Better still, it maintains a lot of the useful ports, such as USB and LAN ports, most mesh networks leave out.

Kindle Paperwhite E-reader (7th Generation) | $80 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius

The previous generation Kindle Paperwhite is the best e-reader for almost everyone, and at $80, it’s a no-brainer for bookworms traveling during the ongoing holiday season.

It’s missing the waterproofing found in the latest version, but the $50 savings isn’t something papyrophobiacs should skim over. Especially when you consider this version still holds thousands of books and can last weeks on a single charge.

Anker PowerPort Mini 2-Pack | $13 | Amazon | Promo code ANKERWBF
Advertisement

Anker’s newest PowerPort wall charger is its smallest one yet, and you can grab two of them for just $13 on Amazon today with promo code ANKERWBF.

The PowerPort Mini isn’t much bigger than the power brick that came with your iPhone, but it includes folding plugs, two ports, and 12W of power rather than just 5W. Literally everything about it is better.

Advertisement

That power is split between the two ports, so while it can charge an iPad at full speed if it’s the only thing plugged in, it’ll drop down to half speed if you plugged in a second device. But even so, that’s perfectly fine for overnight charging, and this thing is small enough to fit in any bag.

Refurb TCL 55" 55P605 4K TV | $400 | Woot
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Didn’t find the right TV for you over Deals Week? This 55" 4K TCL is an absolute steal at $400 on Woot today, even if it is refurbished and last year’s model. That gets you 72 local dimming zones and even Dolby Vision HDR support, which is absolutely bonkers in a set this cheap.

Jackery Battery Backup Powerpro 500 | $400 | Amazon
Graphic: Elizabeth Zimmerman
Advertisement

I couldn’t really tell you why the Jackery Battery Backup Powerpro 500 is being billed as a CPAP accessory. Like okay, yes, it does that, but that seems like a really narrow market compared to all the other things reviewers mention using it for. Just a few examples: Running air mattress pumps, generating electricity for TVs on the go, getting juice to a small fridge, powering astronomy equipment. IKR? Totally more useful than the name lets on. At today’s all-time low price of $400 (it’s normally $600 or more), you might just want to grab one — there’s no telling what future adventures you could have where it’ll come in handy.

Yi Lite Action Cam | $46 | Amazon | Clip the $15 coupon

Yi makes our readers’ favorite budget action cams, and you can capture your next adventure for under $50 with today’s deal on the Yi Lite. Because you never know when you might go viral.

Advertisement

Compared to the original Yi Action Cam, the Yi Lite adds a 2" touchscreen, 4K/15FPS recording, and improved 2+ hour battery life. At $46 on sale, it’s a no-brainer upgrade for the screen alone, which helps you line up your shots, and also makes it much easier to change the camera’s settings.

AmazonBasics Tech Sale | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Amazon sells a ton of affordable tech essentials under its AmazonBasics brand, and dozens of them (including some surprises) are on sale right now for Cyber Monday.

Your basic essentials like rechargeable AA batteries, USB-C cables, and Velcro cable ties are here, as you’d expect, but did you know AmazonBasics has a UPS power supply? An LED mouse pad? A cool retractable Lightning cable? Yeah, me either. Be sure to head over to Amazon to see all of the deals; chances are there’s something you can use.

It’s 2018. It’s time for your lighting to do more than just turn off and on. At the very least, you should be able to control it with a smart device. Amazon is currently discounting a number of Philips Hue bulbs that can do just that, so you can join the rest of us here in the 21st century. Or, if you’ve already got the basics, there’s also a deal to be had on the ambient lightstrip, so you can really lean into that futuristic Blade Runner vibe. Except, hopefully, for the bleak post-apocalyptic overtones.

It’s no secret that our readers love Anker products, so we worked with them to line up exclusive deals on rarely-discounted products, reader favorites, and items we recommended in our holiday gift guides. Just be sure to note the promo codes, and let us know what you got (or anything else you might want a deal on...) in the comments.

All of the deals are above, but I should make special note the two most popular items. The PowerCore Fusion is one of my favorite products (not “Anker products”...just “products”) ever. It’s a wall charger that doubles as a USB battery pack, and the battery recharges itself whenever it’s plugged into the wall. Most USB battery packs require you to bring a spare wall charger and a cable to recharge them, but this just refills while it charges your gadgets at night. I never take a trip without it. At $21 (with code KINJAFS6), it’s a must-buy.

Advertisement

And it can’t be overstated how popular SoundBuds Slims are with our readers. The won our Co-Op because of their solid battery life, tiny design, and strong magnets that hold them together around your neck when not in use. Get them for $21 with promo code KINJAH325.

Advertisement

And while it’s not cheap at $100 (with promo code KINJAPD5), the USB-C Power Delivery battery pack is insanely useful for keeping laptops and Nintendo Switches charged up on long flights. And unlike most USB-C PD battery packs, this one is encased in premium aluminum, and comes with a USB-C wall charger that you can use with all of your USB-C gadgets.

If you haven’t found the right TV deal for you this Deals Week, Walmart just put several new models on sale for Cyber Monday. The sets are definitely on the low end: most lack smart apps and HDR, some aren’t 4K, and even the Samsung is from the company’s entry level 4K lineup. But if you need a spare TV for an extra room in your house, and it doesn’t have to be the best of the best, these are rock bottom prices.


Advertisement

Samsung’s U3-rated microSD cards are some of the fastest and most popular options out there—I have the 128GB model in my own Nintendo Switch—and all four sizes are down to all-time low prices today on Amazon.

The 32GB card is down to a laughably cheap $6, the 64GB just dropped $11, and the 128GB went from $25 to $20. The ever-so-slightly-slower SanDisk Ultra cards have even higher capacities on sale, from 200GB all the way up to 400GB, all at all-time low prices.

Advertisement

If you need extra space for your action cam, smartphone, tablet, Switch, or anything else, these are extremely fast cards, and extremely good deals.


Advertisement

Walmart and Esports Arena have their own line of gaming PCs now, and you can save on a couple of the laptops today for Cyber Monday.

$699 gets you a Core i5, a GTX 1050, 8GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSD (paired with a 1TB HDD), or you can spend $1199 to upgrade to a Core i7, GTX 1060, 16GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD. Both computers include 15" 1080p displays with 144hz refresh rates, and even backlit mechanical (!!) keyboards.

Advertisement

That’s a $200 discount in both cases, and the first deal we’ve seen on these machines, both of which qualify for the Intel eSports Pack Bundle, which includes free downloads of games like Paladins and PUBG.


Advertisement

Update: The deals seem to still be available, but you’ll have to clip a coupon, in some cases.

In addition to our reader-exclusive discounts, the RoboVac 30, and the miniature projector deals that we’ve already covered, Anker put all of the following products on sale today for Cyber Monday.

Advertisement

The SoundCore Spirit headphones are noteworthy for featuring Bluetooth 5.0 and an eight hour battery in a tiny package. The $18 wall charger is worth grabbing if you own any USB-C devices (though the Power Delivery port is only 18W), and the PowerCore 13000 battery pack is worth a shout-out, because Anker’s batteries just don’t go on sale that often anymore. Head below for the rest of the deals.


Sugru Moldable Glue - 8 pack | $15-$16 | Amazon | Price varies by color
Advertisement

Sugru is right up there with binder clips and the Raspberry Pi in Lifehacker’s pantheon of must-have gear, and you can stock up today with eight packs from Amazon for just $15 or $16 (depending on the color), or about $4-$5 less than usual.

Private Internet Access Exclusive Deals

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.

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:

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.

Dyson V10 Animal | $379 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister
Advertisement

It’s 2018, and your vacuum shouldn’t have a cord anymore. Dyson’s cordless V-series stick vacs have long been go-to cordless options, but the powerful new V10 is arguably the first that can truly, completely replace a corded vacuum, at least for smaller homes.

Advertisement

We haven’t really seen any discounts on the V10 since its release in March, but Amazon’s now offering the powerful Animal configuration for an all-time low $379, down from the original $600 selling price, and the best price ever by $70. This model doesn’t include the soft cleaning head of the Absolute model, but it has a larger bin and more accessories than the entry level Motorhead, which is only a few bucks cheaper right now. All of the V10s include the same 60 minute (!!) battery, and the same powerful motor.

Not so long ago, I thought all blenders were pretty much the same. But that turns out not to be the case, as Big Blender is continually developing new technology to make sure they can keep selling their goods. For example, the Nutri Ninja with Auto-iQ & FreshVac Technology, $60 at Walmart and Amazon, features a pump that removes oxygen before you blend, so the resulting concoction stays good longer. That seems kind of like overkill when you’re working with a single-serve machine, but what do I know? I wasn’t even aware that less foam in your drink was a positive selling point until just now.

Here’s a deal to get your tail wagging: If you have a pet and you sometimes need to buy things for said pet, there’s a pretty good chance it’s on sale now thanks to Chewy’s Cyber Deals. Fetch up to 50% off a range of pet essentials, from food to treats to toys, plus a good amount of items are buy one, get one — just note the deal on each listing in green, and use the sidebar to filter for your pet’s preferences. But hurry, this sale won’t sit...staaaaay around for long.

Feel like getting out of town, but don’t know where yet? Check out Alaska Airlines’ Cyber Monday flight sale (or is it Travel Deal Tuesday?), with one-way tickets starting at $39 from dozens of cities. Just pick your departure city, and you’ll see all of the possible destinations, and the lowest available price for each.

I clicked around a few random deals, and the best prices were available for a surprising number of dates, so you should be able to find a deal that fits your schedule.

A good tool set is hard to find, but choosing to take advantage of the deal on this one is easy: The very positively reviewed 170-piece Crescent Mechanics Tool Set is back down to its lowest price ever of $78. And not to throw a wrench in your day, but there’s no telling how long this deal will last, so be sure to purchase yours ASAP.

Black Cyber Week Sale | Wayfair

Wayfair’s Cyber Week sale is here, and it is massive. You can save big on a laundry list of home decor items like wall art, area rugs, sheets & comforters, sofas, mattresses, dining room furniture, and more.

There’s so many items to look through, so make some time in your schedule. If you’re needing some place to start, I like this mid-century modern coffee table, wild flower center piece, and industrial-style platform bed.

This sale ends Monday at midnight, so head on over to Wayfair to see it all for yourself. Let us know about your favorite finds in the comment section!


K&H Heated Outdoor Kitty House | $35 | Amazon
Graphic: Elizabeth Zimmerman
Advertisement

We’ve reached a point in human history where “if you’re cold, they’re cold” is such obvious pet owner advice that we’ve taken to mocking it. But it does have some merit — many cats and dogs are not equipped to handle freezing conditions. Not thrilled with the idea of letting your outdoor cat come in and test its claws on your furniture this winter? The K&H Heated Outdoor Kitty House is here to solve your problems. (I like how they’re really careful to call it a “kitty house” instead of a “cat house.” Wouldn’t want to send the wrong message.) It’s designed to keep cats warm even when the temperature drops below zero, and there’s nothing cats love more than having a place to run and hide when you try to love them.

Greenworks 40V Twin Force Cordless Lawn Mower | $226 | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone
Advertisement

Lawns nationwide aren’t necessarily thriving at the moment, what with temperatures dropping by the second, but the deal on this electric, 20-inch Greenworks 40V Lawn Mover is still worth scooping up right now. The price on this cordless mower has been mowed down to an all-time low of $226; that includes two extra batteries.

What’s particularly impressive here is that this mower’s smart cut technology automatically adjusts power and runtime based on the thickness of the grass it’s cutting. Plus, dual blades are included for maximum efficiency and cut quality. Buy yours now, and come spring, you’ll truly understand by gas-powered mowers are so last season.

Instant Pot Ultra 6 qt. | $85 | Amazon
Instant Pot DUO80 8 qt. | $80 | Amazon
Instant Pot 6 Qt. Nonstick Inner Pot | $15 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you still don’t have an Instant Pot in your kitchen (or want a second; it’s not that crazy!), one of the best Cyber Monday deals is still available: the gorgeous (and more intuitive) Instant Pot Ultra for an all-time low $85.

Instant Pot’s official 6 qt. nonstick inner pot is also on sale for $15, down from the usual $15. You don’t need it, but it’s a nice extra.

Advertisement
Advertisement

And finally, if you think you’ll need the space, grab the 8 qt. DUO model for $80. That’s not quite as cheap as Black Friday, but it’s a great deal if you cook for large groups.

Advertisement

In addition to pressure cooking (which is a miracle), this is also our readers’ favorite slow cooker, and one of their favorite rice cookers too. To put it simply, it’s one of the most versatile kitchen gadgets you can own.

Anker RoboVac 30 | $190 | Amazon | Promo code KINJA217
Advertisement

Anker’s Eufy RoboVac line has been a hit with our readers, to say the least, and now you can score the lowest price ever on the powerful RoboVac 30.

The RoboVac 30 is the same size as the new RoboVac 11s (which is to say, it’s very thin), but has stronger suction (1500Pa vs. 1300, and for comparison, the old RoboVac 10 only had 400), and includes guide strips that you can lay down anywhere in your home (like in front of cords on the ground) to warn the vacuum to steer clear.

Advertisement

The $200 list price is already $70 less than usual, and would be an all-time low on its own, but promo code KINJA217 will save you an extra $10 at checkout.

Lansky BladeMedic | $7 | Amazon

No matter how great your kitchen knives are, they all need some tender loving care from time to time. This $7 Lansky BladeMedic includes two v-sharpeners, a fold-out sharpening rod, and a ceramic sharpening edge for serrated knives, all in a handheld package that can fit into any kitchen drawer.

This thing amazingly has a 4.6 star review average from over 3,000 customers, and it’s sold out within a few hours pretty much every time we’ve posted it at this price, so I wouldn’t wait.

August Third Generation Smart Lock | $99 | Amazon

August’s third genration Smart Lock lets you lock and unlock your door from using your phone, and you can get the silver or black model for just $99 today, an all-time low.

Assuming you have your phone with you whenever you leave the house, an August Smart Lock-installed door will auto lock behind you and unlock as you approach. It’s especially useful because you don’t have to necessarily be home to grant or restrict access to people like dog walkers, maintenance workers, or other people who need to come into your house; just send them a guest key with the August app. And since it integrates with your existing deadbolt, you can continue using a physical key as well, if your phone ever dies.

Advertisement

Unlike previous August locks, this one doesn’t have Wi-Fi built in—it uses Bluetooth to talk to your phone—but you can add a Wi-Fi hub to your router to access it over the internet from anywhere.

Free Shipping For Your First Year | Firstleaf Wine Club | Promo code KINJA
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 from now through Cyber Monday.

Advertisement

Every new Firstleaf member gets an introductory delivery with three bottles of wine for just $15, plus $5 shipping. Every box thereafter includes six bottles for $80, plus $10 shipping. If you use this link and promo code Kinja when you sign up though, 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.


30% off Custom wall prints at Amazon

There are two ways to share your favorite photos with your friends. You can show them on your phone and pray that they don’t start swiping through your gallery, or you can party like it’s 1999 and actually display a physical copy of the photo somewhere in your home. The latter is much safer and more impressive, and it’s not as much of a hassle as you remember thanks to Amazon, where all purchases are as painless as possible. Custom canvas prints there start at just $24, so you can finally hang some art on your walls like a functioning adult. Next on the list: Cooking a meal with pots and pans instead of in the microwave.

There’s an old saying that goes, “keep your body warm, but your extremities warmer.” Or something close to that, at least. The point is, cozy socks are important, and Keen is totally on board with that message — so on board that they’re donating 15,000 pairs of socks to those in need and, today only, they want to encourage you to do the same. To that end, all socks are 50% off and ship free, so you can score a pair for as little as $8. (Everything else ships free too, but the socks are the big deal.) So stock up (sock up?), and don’t be stingy. Socks are one of the most requested donation items at homeless shelters!

DevaCurl has attained cult status among those of us with hair that falls somewhere on the spectrum of wavy to kinky.

DevaCurl has extended their Cyber Monday sale, which means you can still snag four full-size products for just $65.

REI skips Black Friday every year in favor of enjoying the great outdoors, which is fair. But that doesn’t mean they’ll leave you in the lurch when it comes to savings. The outdoor retailer is getting a jump on Cyber Monday Week by taking up to 40% off a huge range of their stock — prices on everything from tents and outwear, to car racks and water bottles are getting slashed. Most of these deals will last through December 2, but a few will be hitting the road on Monday, so it’s probably a good idea to grab what you want now.

Hindsight is 20/20. For instance, resurrecting hoards of dinosaurs to populate a theme park is probably not a great idea. Now, don’t you make a big mistake by passing up this roaring deal on the five-film Jurassic World Movie Collection. Relive the movie magic of Jeff Golblum’s glistening abs and the most terrifying scene involving Jell-O in Hollywood history, not to mention the newer film iterations featuring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard running for her life in high heels.

Breath of the Wild is one of the greatest games ever made, so we’ll forgive Nintendo for spiking the football with a ~400 page hardcover compendium full of design artwork, commentary about the game’s development, and a history of the Breath of the Wild’s take on Hyrule.

The book only just came out, but its price has been chopped down like so many blades of grass to an all-time low $19 today. That’s not a lot of rupees for an incredible gift for any Nintendo fan.

It takes a few rounds to get into the rhythm of Kingdom Builder, but it’s a must-own if you enjoy tabletop strategy games. Every game features a new board, new kingdom building rules, and new victory conditions that are unique to each player, so it’s unlikely to feel stale like, say, Catan can start to after awhile.

Set in the world of the video game that shares its name, 3 to 5 players work as a team to survive the throngs of monsters and villains sent their way. And unlike Settlers of Catan or Monopoly, you’ll likely walk away without any bruised egos or real-life blood feuds.

Board games are super fun, but they take up a lot of real estate when your collection reaches a certain size. Humble Bundle knows that we don’t all have space for a giant cabinet of amusements, so they’ve created a digital assemblage to entertain you and take up zero room (except in your Steam library, but that’s already overflowing, so a few new additions won’t hurt). For $1, they’ll give you seven ports of games like Harald and Agricola for platforms ranging from Android to Mac. Pay $7 or more to unlock 11 more games, including Pandemic and Splendor. I’m not entirely sure about the logistics of having friends over for game night when you have to sit in front of a computer to play, but I’m sure there’s a way to make it work. The human spirit is predisposed to overcome all kinds of obstacles.

No doubt you have questions about some of your kids’ favorite things. Super Monsters: Why do they transform into humans during the day, while their parents remain monsters 24/7? JoJo with the bow-bow: How is it possible that she’s basically the same age Britney Spears was for “Baby One More Time”?

DXRacer’s Formula gaming chair has graced many an esports tournament stage in its day, and you can plant your own butt in one for $215 for Cyber Monday. That’s not a small amount of money, but it normally pushes $300, and if you spend a lot of time in a chair for gaming or for work, it’ll be a worthwhile investment.

Kotaku’s Maddy Myers covered the very similar DXRacer Valkyrie in exhausting detail, if you want to give that a read before pulling the trigger.

Scythe | $49 | Amazon

If there was one more game I was hoping to see in Amazon’s Black Friday board game sale last week, it was Scythe. Lo and behold, it’s now down to $49, within about a buck of its best price ever.

From Board Game Geek:

It is a time of unrest in 1920s Europa. The ashes from the first great war still darken the snow. The capitalistic city-state known simply as “The Factory”, which fueled the war with heavily armored mechs, has closed its doors, drawing the attention of several nearby countries.

Scythe is an engine-building game set in an alternate-history 1920s period. It is a time of farming and war, broken hearts and rusted gears, innovation and valor. In Scythe, each player represents a character from one of five factions of Eastern Europe who are attempting to earn their fortune and claim their faction’s stake in the land around the mysterious Factory. Players conquer territory, enlist new recruits, reap resources, gain villagers, build structures, and activate monstrous mechs.

Arcade1Up’s 3/4 sized arcade cabinets have been a hit with our readers, and you can save $50 on a couple of them for the first time this Cyber Monday. The deal is only supposed to be available on the Pacman and the Galaga/Galaxian machines, but now it seems that all of them are included (though not all are in stock at this moment)

Walmart also sells a riser that brings the cabinets up to standard arcade cabinet height, so that might be a good way to spend your savings.

With Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft basically created the Netflix of video games, and it’s a great deal at its usual $10 per month. But for a limited time, you can get a gift card for a whole year for just $70.

Xbox Game Pass grants you access to newer releases like State of Decay 2 and Sea of Thieves, as well as classics like KOTOR and all of the Gears of War games. The only catch is that you’ll be auto-renewed at the standard rate after the year is up, but hopefully there will be another deal before that happens, right

Dead Cells [Switch Digital] | $20 | Amazon

It’s a shame that Dead Cells launch was overshadowed by poor ethics in game journalism, because it’s a terrific game that you really ought to play. The Switch digital release is $5 off its usual $25 on Amazon right now, the first discount we’ve ever seen on the downloadable version.

Life hack: It’s the same price on the eShop, but if you buy on Amazon, you’ll get credit for the number of Gold coins (125) you would have gotten if it was full price. If you buy it from Nintendo, you’ll only get credit for the discounted price (100 coins).
