BEST TECH DEALS

RAVPower 10,000mAh Qi Battery Pack | $30 | Amazon | Promo code KINJA081
Graphic: Shep McAllister

RAVPower’s newest battery pack has a Qi charging pad built right in, and you can get it for $30 today with promo code KINJA081, the first deal we’ve seen on it.

So, why would you want a Qi pad in your battery? Obviously, it means that if you forget your charging cable when you head out, the battery isn’t just an expensive paperweight. But it also means you can use it around as an everyday Qi charger, whereas most USB battery packs gather dust in a drawer save for a few occasions per year.


Anker SoundCore Spirit Bluetooth Earbuds | $33 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

At first glance, Anker’s SoundCore Spirits look a lot like the reader-favorite SoundBuds Slims, but they do have a few key upgrades. The big one is IPX7 water resistance, plus added sweat-countering measures from Anker that make them ideal for working out, especially compared to the IPX5-rated Slims. They also last a bit longer with an eight hour battery (vs. seven), include a built-in cord shortener, and should have a bit more bass as well.

The SoundCore Spirits have sold for $40 since they launched, but today, they’re just $33.


Anker PowerLine+ II 10' Lightning Cable | $14 | Amazon | Promo code ANKER454. Multiple colors available.

Anker’s reader-favorite PowerLine charging cables have blossomed into an entire line of different products, and it hasn’t always been clear which one was the best:

PowerLine - The original. Rubber-wrapped, and kevlar-reinforced.

PowerLine+ - The same, but wrapped in Nylon for added durability, less tangling, and a better feel.

Advertisement

PowerLine II - A more durable version of the original, and backed by a lifetime warranty, but without the benefits of nylon wrapping.

That confusion can now become a thing of the past, because they’ve combined the best of all of their cables into the new PowerLine+ II, and you can save on the 10‘ Lightning version today for the first time ever. It’s incredibly durable, it’s wrapped in nylon, and it comes with a lifetime warranty, meaning it’s probably the last Lightning cable you’ll ever have to buy. Get it in any color you want today for $14, or about $6 less than usual, with promo code ANKER454.


Sennheiser HD 6XX | $200 | MassDrop

Sennheiser’s HD 650 open back headphones are widely considered some of the best-sounding cans you can buy for under $1000, and the best chance to get them is when MassDrop drops a new shipment of the legendary HD 6XX.

Advertisement

The 6XX is basically exactly the same as the standard 650, but with a 6' cable rather than the original’s 10', which is actually a better length, in my opinion. The 650s are currently listed for $375 on Amazon, and have never been cheaper than $287, but MassDrop has a limited number units of the 6XX available for $200, while supplies last.


Hisense 49" 4K Smart TV | $220 | Walmart
Hisense 55" 4K Smart TV | $320 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

You’d expect a $220 TV to be stripped of basically all features, but this 49" set from Hisense actually has smart apps, HDR support (though not Dolby Vision, sorry), and yes, even 4K resolution. It’s obviously not the best TV you can buy, but it’s a hell of a bargain.

You can also step up to the 55" version of the same set for $100 more.


Brother HL2390DW | $100 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you’re still wrestling with a terrible inkjet printer at home, do yourself a solid and pick up the reliable Brother HL-2390DW monochrome laser printer today for just $100 today, down from its usual $120-$140.

Advertisement

While it doesn’t print in color, it more than makes up for that with the ability to spit out 32 pages per minute, duplex printing, and inexpensive toner cartridges that can last for years without being replaced. We’ve posted a lot of Brother deals in the past, and we’ve heard nothing but good things from readers about them.


iClever Lightweight Bluetooth Earbuds | $13 | Amazon | Promo code ICEBTH20
Photo: Amazon

If most Bluetooth earbuds ar too large or heavy to stay comfortably in your ears, iClever’s lightest Bluetooth headphones are worth a look. The earbuds themselves weigh less than half an ounce each, and having tried them myself, they’re just as light and comfortable as any wired headphones I’ve ever used. Get a pair for just $13 today with promo code ICEBTH20. Even if you already have a pair that you like, at that price, it might be worth grabbing a spare set for your luggage or gym bag.


North Bayou Articulating Monitor Arm | $20 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

You aren’t getting the most out of your computer monitor until you put it on a fully articulating and rotating arm. This one from North Bayou can hold monitors up to 27", and even includes cable routing and a USB hub on the base that can be easier to reach than the USB ports on the back of your display. At $20, it’s an absolute steal.


Apple Watch Series 1 38mm | $149 | Walmart
Apple Watch Series 1 42mm | $179 | Walmart
Photo: Gizmodo

It’s not one of the high-end models with GPS or LTE, but $149 for a 38mm Apple Watch Series 1 (or $179 for the 42mm) is one of the best deals we’ve ever seen on Apple’s increasingly popular wearable.

Advertisement

Somewhat confusingly, the Series 1 is not quite the same as the original Apple Watch, as it has a second generation chip for faster performance. It’ll also be getting WatchOS 5 in the fall, which includes fitness improvements, customizable Siri shortcuts, and most importantly of all, walkie-talkie mode.


Humble’s newest bundle eschews games in favor of cyber security software. As usual, the contents are split among three different tiers, but the $15 top tier has some really great stuff, including a year of Dashlane Premium password management software and a year of Private Internet Access, our readers’ favorite VPN. Both of those are only valid for new users, but either one on its own would be a stellar discount.

Advertisement

You can also try PIA for a month for just $1 through this bundle, and if you’re ready to commit, get three years of the service for $90 with our exclusive discount. They don’t offer that price to the general public.

BEST HOME DEALS

Instant Pot DUO Plus 60 | $90 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you keep telling yourself you should buy an Instant Pot, today’s the day to pull the trigger, as the 6 qt. Plus model is on sale for the best price of the year as part of an Amazon Gold Box deal.

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. Today’s deal is $30 less than usual, and the best price we’ve seen since last year’s Cyber Monday, but it’s only available today, and could sell out early.


Thermapen Mk4 | $79 | ThermoWorks
Graphic: ThermoWorks

Fourth of July barbecues are just around the corner, and you can be ready for that (and all of your other cooking needs) with an exclusive discount on our readers’ favorite meat thermometer: the Thermapen Mk4.

Advertisement

You guys love the Thermapen because it displays the temperature in 2 - 3 seconds, has a 3,000 hour battery life, is waterproof, and is accurate within 0.7°F.

Here are just a few readers gushing over it:

Thermapen Classic (or really any of the Thermapens). Bar none the best thermometer for cooking I have ever bought — accept no substitutes.

Somewhat expensive at ~$70-$120 range, but I’ve been using mine for years and years, and it still gives me an accurate reading in less than three seconds. Well, well worth the price. Especially excellent for the grill. - theburners

Without a doubt. No other thermometer comes close. I’ve said it before on Kinja that the Thermapen is the best piece of kitchen equipment I’ve ever bought. - the-return-of-samba00

This model doesn’t see significant discounts very often, and when it does, it’s usually only on one or two colorways, rather than the 10 you can choose from today. It’s only valid through Wednesday though, so don’t let the deal overcook.


20% off Chemical Guys | Amazon
Graphic: Erica Offutt

Chemical Guys make some of the most popular car detailing products on the market, and Amazon’s currently taking 20% off several soaps, waxes, tire and glass cleaners, and more today. They’ve been running coupons on their cleaning products relatively often, but today’s sale also includes some of their popular cleaning kits, polishers, and waxes.

Just note that the prices listed on this page don’t include the discount, but you’ll be able to see the discount at checkout.


25% off Sale | Hydro Flask
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Vacuum-insulated bottles can keep drinks hot or cold all day long, and Hydro Flask makes some of the most popular options out there. Their wares don’t go on sale often, but from now until the Fourth of July, the entire site is 25% off, with the discount taken automatically at checkout. Every cooler, every bottle, and every tumbler in every color imaginable is on sale, so drink up.


Serta 25" Canopy Pet Bed | $20 | Woot
Graphic: Erica Offutt

If your pups enjoy burrowing under blankets, you can treat them to this discounted Serta dog bed with a hooded canopy from Woot. This bed is 25" circle and ideal for dogs up to 35 pounds. For easy clean-up, the bed cover is removable and machine washable. It’ll cost you just 20 bones today, which is about $20 less than its Amazon price.


6 Night Thailand Vacation with Air | $779+ | TripMasters

The conventional wisdom about visiting southeast Asia is that it’s expensive to get there, but cheap once you arrive. But what if it was also cheap to get there?

Note: If the link isn’t working, try pausing your ad blocker.

TripMasters (in partnership with Travelzoo) is offering six night trips to Bangkok and Phuket starting at just $779, including airfare, hotels, and a flight between the cities. Prices vary by departure airport and date, but you do have a lot of flexibility here to choose your hotels and itinerary, including adding extra nights if you wish.


Cosco 300 Pound Capacity Dolly/Hand Truck | $50 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Take it from me, someone who loaded up all his possessions in a moving container this weekend: you should have a dolly. This one can be used as both a dolly and a hand truck, can hold 300 pounds, and is down to $50 on Amazon right now, or about $10 less than usual. Most importantly though, it folds up flat when not in use, so it should fit in just about any closet.


If your tires are about due for a replacement, Discount Tire Direct is offering up to $100 in Visa gift card rebates (in addition to any manufacturer rebates) when you order four new tires as part of their Independence Day sale, plus an additional $100 if you order wheels as well, with extra gift cards available if you use or sign up for a Discount Tire credit card. Just enter your make and model, click the options to see tires on promotion, and you’ll see the rebate amount (either $25, $75, or $100) on the right hand side.

I took advantage of the basically identical Memorial Day sale last month, and it was easy. But just note that if you schedule your installation after the promotional period ends on July 1, you’ll want to call your local shop and pay for the tires over the phone in advance so that your receipt falls within the valid date range. Otherwise, they’ll charge you after they finish installation.

Just remember that you’ll have to submit the rebate form yourself (you can do it all online) to get the gift cards. You can find everything you need to know here.


Have any summer vacations on the horizon? Throw out the ratty old suitcase you bought in college and upgrade to a new spinner from eBags during this limited time Jet sale. Carry-ons, checked bags, combos, softsides, hardsides...it’s all here. Just pick your favorite and save.


Microwave Popcorn Silicone Bowl | $8 | Amazon | Use code X9IS9L3J
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Stovetop popcorn can become microwave popcorn with this silicone bowl, just $8 today with promo code X9IS9L3J. Just throw some kernels in the bowl with the salt and oil of your choice, cover, and microwave for 3-4 minutes, the same amount of time a bag of microwave popcorn would take. But unlike regular microwave popcorn, this lets you customize the flavors exactly how you like them.

Pro tip: Use coconut oil if you want it to taste like movie theater popcorn. Just trust me on this one.


The cabinet under your sink is some of the most precious storage space in your house, and you can make the most of it with this expanding shelf set. It can extend from 18 to 30 inches, and has a gap carved out to accommodate the pipes under your sink.


BEST LIFESTYLE DEALS

Save 25% or more on Makartt Beauty Products | Amazon
Graphic: Jillian Lucas

There’s nothing like spending a weekend getting a manicure or relaxing at a spa, but damn do they cost way too much. Bring the spa services home with you with this one-day sale from Amazon. Nail dryers and waxers are perfect for taking care of whatever you need at home, without trekking to a salon or spa and shelling out a bunch of cash. As for the nail drills, I would say stick to those only if you actually know what you’re doing.


BioLite Wood Burning CampStove | $78 | REI Garage

It’s impossible to describe the BioLite CampStove without sounding like you just woke up from a fever dream, but here goes nothing...

Advertisement

First, find some sticks just laying on the ground, then toss them into the stove and light them on fire. Built in fans kindle the flames and make them hot enough to cook with. And oh yeah, there’s also a USB port that’s powered by the heat of the flame that can charge your phone. It’s completely bonkers, and yet it works.

Of course, this also works as a regular old camp stove, and at full power it can boil a liter of water in under five minutes. It also weighs two pounds, and is about the size of a large water bottle, so it won’t take up too much space in your camping bag. Get it for an all-time low $78 at REI Garage, while supplies last, for a limited time.

Shane looked at the CampStove 2 for Gear, and while that model includes a built-in battery pack, a camp light, and a few other enhancements, I don’t think any of them are worth the price premium during this promotion.


NordicTrack Desk Treadmill | $875 | Woot
Graphic: Erica Offutt

Free yourself from your office chair with this NordicTrack desk treadmill. This model has a 40" x 18" work space, so you’ll have some space for your laptop and maybe a notebook.

Advertisement

Today’s $875 price tag is about $200 when you compare it to its Amazon’s price, and folds up for easy storage when not in use. Plus, it has special tray to hold tablets, and will ship for free for Prime members. So, go ahead and expend some calories while you build your expense reports.



Mpowerd Luci Inflatable Camp Light Sale | $11-$25 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Mpowerd’s inflatable, solar-powered LED camping lights are a stylish alternative to LuminAid, and you can save big on several different models in today’s Amazon Gold Box.

Advertisement

The $11 Luci EMRG is the smallest of the bunch and can go into a mode that flashes white and red light in emergencies. The $15 Luci Lux and Luci Outdoor are basically identical, but the former has a warm bulb and frosted exterior (perfect for simulating a dinner candle), while the latter is more utilitarian. And finally, the $25 Luci Color can glow in four different colors, making it a great accent light.

Just remember that these prices are only available today, so order yours before the sun sets on the deal.


Lifewit Men’s Briefcase Vintage Leather Laptop Bag | $30 | Amazon | Use code 8AWUICML
Graphic: Erica Offutt

Laptop bags that protect your computer during transport are usually all function and no form. And rightfully so. But this 15" Lifewit bag is actually incredibly attractive and functional, with durable genuine leather, a padded interior, and five pockets for things like your phone, chargers, and more. Pick it up for just $30 with promo code 8AWUICML.


While Gunnar glasses are marketed towards gamers, they can be effective at reducing eyestrain for anyone that spends their day staring at a screen. The problem is that they’re typically pretty expensive, and rarely go on sale. Today though, a bunch of different options are on sale starting at $30 for computer glasses, or even less for regular sunglasses. Just select your preferred style at checkout.


3-Pack Separatec Dual Pouch Micro Modal Boxer Briefs | $25 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

I could dance around what makes this underwear unique, but it’s easier to just say it: It has a separate compartment for your penis to keep it away from your balls. It sounds a little ridiculous, but as the weather starts to warm up, it couldl certainly keep you out of some, uh, sticky situations. Try out a three-pack of the soft micro-modal version for $25, or about $5 less than usual today.

Advertisement

Update: The same price is now available on Separatec’s quick-dry underwear as well. It won’t be as soft as micro modal, but the cotton/polyester blend should be better suited to handle sweat.


Zappos Rewards Sale | Zappos
Graphic: Zappos

Update : The sales messaging on the site is gone, but it seems like the sale is still active for now.

Zappos is basically a one-stop shoe destination already, but right now, they’re having a very rare sale, marking down thousands of shoe, boots, and apparel for the summer season. Heels, boots, sneakers, swimsuits, workout gear, all kinds of styles from brands like Clarks, Adidas, Nike, SOREL, Converse, Dr. Martens, and more. Stock up for the season while you can, because they only run sales this big once or twice per year.

Plus, if you join their free rewards program, you’ll get free next business day shipping on all orders through 2018. You can’t beat that.


Clip this Sport-Brella swiveling umbrella on to your chair, cooler, golf bag, or any where else you’d like to add a little shade. At just $18 today, today’s price is the first discount we’ve seen this summer and the best price we’ve seen in 4 months. It’s more portable than the full Sport-Brella tent, but has the same sun protection and durable cover. The red and blue colors are on sale, if you hurry!


Coleman Beach Shade | $28 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Coleman’s Daytripper beach shade looks a lot like the top-selling Sport-Brella, but at $28, it’s considerably cheaper today. It also includes a floor, for my fellow sand-averse beachgoers.


Extra 40% off sale styles | Reebok | Use code EXTRA40

If you need any type of activewear or sneakers in the next coming weeks now that it’s finally nice out, Reebok is giving you extra 40% off everything from their outlet shop, with the code EXTRA40.

It may be getting too hot outside to even think about spending more than 15 min in the sun, but that doesn’t mean you should pass up a good outdoor gear deal. Backcountry celebrating Independence Day by taking up to 40% off a ton of apparel, gear, bags, and more.


Fossil Semi-Annual Sale | Fossil

If you’re looking to up your watch look, you can do it on the cheap with Fossil’s semi-annual sale, happening now. Over 1,000 watches, hand bags, belts, wallets, and other accessories are up to 50% off for both women and men, no promo code required. So what are you waiting for?


BEST MEDIA DEALS

Parks & Rec [Digital] | Amazon

While we wait around for that Liz Lemon/Leslie Knope spin-off, you can rewatch every episode of Parks & Rec for just $5 per season.


The Woman in the Window: A Novel | $4 | Amazon
Graphic: Erica Offutt

If you’ve already binged all of Netflix’s The Staircase and need a new dark and twisty story to consume, this New York Times bestseller might do the trick. The Woman in the Window is described as “a smart, sophisticated novel of psychological suspense that recalls the best of Hitchcock,” and the Kindle version is just $4 today.


Rent Call Me By Your Name | $1 | Amazon

Call Me By Your Name, one of the darlings of award season earlier this year, is just $1 to rent on Amazon today. That leaves you with more money in your wallet to buy peaches


BEST GAMING DEALS

Civilization VI | $24 | Amazon

Civilization VI made some major changes in its summer update, and you can pick up the game for $24 today, the best price we’ve ever seen. Amazon lists it as the Mac version, but all you’re really buying here is a Steam code, so it’ll work on PC as well. Just be sure to place your order before Gandhi nukes the deal.


Rocket League [Switch] | $15 | Amazon
Image: Nintendo

As far as I’m concerned, the Switch port of Rocket League is up there with fire and the wheel in terms of greatest inventions of all-time. The ability to play a few rounds in the palm of your hand just makes it that much more addictive, and don’t get me started on Samus’s gunship car. Download it for $15 today, or $5 less than usual.


Amazon’s listing these Jurassic World LEGO sets for less than ever today. You can reenact the big scenes from the first Jurassic World movie with LEGO pieces like the blue helicopter, gyrosphere, and of course, a couple of dinosaurs. All of the prices are at least $9 less than usual, so grab these up before they’re extinct.


EastPoint Folding Ping Pong Table | $90 | Walmart
ESPN 72" Air Hockey Table With Ping Pong | $58 | Walmart | With in-store pickup, or $80 shipped.
Graphic: Shep McAllister

No garage or game room is complete without a ping pong table, and you can grab one for just $90 from Walmart today. If you’re worried about space, it even folds up to the size of a (very large) suitcase, so you can store it in the back of a closet, and pull it out when the occasion requires.

Advertisement

If you prefer air hockey, this table is only $58 if you pick it up yourself (or $80 shipped), and it even includes a smallish ping pong table that you can lay on top.


Doom [PS4] | $15 | Amazon
Doom [Xbox One] | $15 | Amazon

The most recent Doom game is...exactly what you’d expect it to be, which is mostly a good thing. If it’s been on your wishlist, it’s back down to $15 on Amazon for Xbox One, and PS4, an all-time low.


Xbox One S 500GB Console + Fallout 4 | $199 | Walmart
Screenshot: Walmart

This barebones Xbox One S console is still down to its $199 E3 promotional price, but now, it also comes with a copy of Fallout 4 if you order through Walmart. It’s not the newest game out there, but the console alone is a pretty stellar deal, so it’s better than nothing
