Best Tech Deals

Logitech Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Amazon runs Logitech Gold Box deals from time to time, but today’s has one of the best selections of products we’ve seen.

The MX mice are all among the best in class:

Our readers’ favorite gaming mouse is also included for $39, complete with adjustable weights.

You’ll find several affordable speaker systems to upgrade your computer, or even your TV. There’s even a 5.1 channel speaker set here for $50, and a THX-certified 2.1 setup for $110.

Inside, there are also several keyboards and webcams, including the ever-popular K400, which includes a built-in trackpad. Be sure to head over to Amazon to see all of the deals, and remember that these prices are only available today, and the best stuff will probably sell out early.


Anker SoundCore Spirit Pro Bluetooth Earbuds | $40 | Amazon | Promo code SDCREPRO

Anker has long been the purveyor of our readers’ favorite affordable Bluetooth headphones, and the SoundCore Spirits looks to be one of the best models yet. With an IP68 rating and an additional hydrophobic nanocoating that keeps them operating under sweaty conditions, they’re perfect for working out. And that 10 hour battery is best in class for this form factor. They’ll normally sell for $50, they’re marked down to $40 with week with promo code SDCREPRO.


Google Wifi System 3-Pack | $210 | Rakuten | Promo code HOME20

Google Wifi is one of the highest profile competitors in the exploding mesh router market, and our readers’ favorite mesh system. If you have a big house, and could make use of a three-router array, Rakuten is marking down the system to just $210 with promo code HOME20, the best price we’ve ever seen.


Yamaha 7.2 Channel Dolby Atmos Receiver | $299 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

This Yamaha receiver has pretty much everything a home theater buff could want, including Dolby Atmos support and five HDMI inputs, and Amazon’s marked it down to $299 today. That’s about $100 less than usual, and one of the best prices we’ve seen on a receiver with these features, but the deal is only available today.


SanDisk 256GB MicroSD Card | $55 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

SanDisk’s microSD cards are some of the most popular and highest rated on the market, and if you need a lot of extra storage for your Switch, GoPro, drone, or dash cam, this 256GB model is down to $55 today, the best price we’ve seen outside of a one-day Gold Box that brought it to $50.


Brother HL2390DW | $100 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

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.

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.


Preorder Universal Lens Cap 2.0 | Kickstarter

Every photographer has lost a lens cap or two in their lives, but with KUVRD’s new Universal Lens Cap 2.0, you’ll want to lose them on purpose.

Advertisement

The silicone caps come in two sizes to fit multiple lens sizes, and can work as both front and rear lens caps, or stretch to protect other gear like flashes and drones. They seem simple at first, but they’re full of nice touches, like the ability to clean them in a dishwasher, white X’s on top that you can color with a permanent marker to distinguish different lenses in your bag, and side wall columns that protect your precious glass from jostling within your bag.

The Universal Lens Cap 2.0 has already blown through its crowdfunding goal, but you can still save a lot by preordering. They’re estimated to ship in February.


Apple Watch Series 3 38mm GPS + Bonus Watch Band | $259 | Walmart
Apple Watch Series 3 42mm GPS + Bonus Watch Band | $289 | Walmart
Apple Watch Series 3 38mm GPS and Cellular + Bonus Watch Band | $359 | Walmart
Apple Watch Series 3 42mm GPS and Cellular + Bonus Watch Band | $389 | Walmart | Product page says 38mm in some places, but 42mm in others, and is priced for 42mm.
Photo: Gizmodo

The release of the new Apple Watch Series 4 coincided with a price drop for the still-excellent Series 3. Today though, Walmart’s taking an extra $20 off those newly reduced prices, and throwing in a free official Apple Watch band of your choice.

This deal is valid for both 38 and 42mm models, both in GPS-only or GPS + Cellular configurations. All of the prices are $20 below Apple’s new MSRPs, and you get to choose an extra sport band or woven nylon band, in your choice of color, for free. That’s in addition to black sport band that comes with the watch, so you’ll be able to swap them out at will.


Anker 3' PowerLine II USB-C to C Cable | $7 | Amazon | Promo code ANKE8481
Anker 6' PowerLine II USB-C to C Cable | $8 | Amazon | Promo code ANKE8482
Photo: Anker

We see deals all the time on USB-A to USB-C cables, but discounts on C-to-C cables, which are necessary for faster Power Delivery charging (used by the new iPad Pros, the Nintendo Switch, and a bunch of laptops), are bafflingly rare. Today though, you can get an Anker PowerLine II C-to-C cable for just $7 with promo code ANKE8481, or double your length to 6' for $8 with promo code ANKE8482.

PowerLine II cables are incredibly durable, and also come with a lifetime warranty, so if you ever do wear it out, you can contact Anker for a free replacement.


Echo Dot + Four Tile Trackers | $50 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Did you know Tile trackers work with Alexa? So if you lose your keys or your wallet in your house you can use your voice to find them without even pulling out your phone.

For a limited, time you can get everything you need to enjoy this vision of the future for just $50: A brand new Echo Dot, plus four Tile trackers in two different sizes. That’s $11 more than buying the Tiles by themselves (which is a good deal on its own), but if you need the Dot, that’s a tremendous value.


TCL 55S517 4K 55" TV | $430 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

TCL’s 2018 6-series TVs are famous for offering every form of HDR (including top-shelf Dolby Vision) and excellent Roku software in an affordable package, and the 5-series has basically all of the same features, save for a metal body and local LED dimming zones. It still supports Dolby Vision, it still has an advanced Roku remote and app control, and it’ll still look amazing. At $430 for a 55" (about $40-$70 less than usual), it’s an incredible value.


Seagate 8TB External Drive Hub | $140 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

I know storage gets cheaper over time, but damn: 8TB for $140? This drive even has a couple of USB ports on the front that allow you to charge your phone, or plug in additional external storage devices.


Anker PowerLine+ II USB-A-to-C Cable 3' | $10 | Amazon | Promo code CABLE846
Anker PowerLine+ II USB-A-to-C Cable 6' | $11 | Amazon | Promo code CABLE843
Graphic: Shep McAllister

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 3' and 6' USB-A to USB-C versions today for the one of the first times ever. These cables are incredibly durable, they’re wrapped in nylon, and they come with a lifetime warranty, meaning it’s probably the last USB-C cable you’ll ever have to buy.

Note: USB-A-to-C cables don’t support Power Delivery charging, only standard USB charging speeds.


If you own external monitors and they can be VESA mounted, there’s really no reason not to. It raises them to an ergonomic height, gives you lots of positioning options, and most importantly, clears up some valuable real estate on your desk. This mount can hold two screens up to 27" each, and it’s just $24 today.


Zero Grid Tech Dopp Kit | $15 | Amazon | Promo code LZ7RJD72

What gift do you get for the gadget lover who already has everything? A bag to carry their gadgets, of course. The Zero Grid Electronics Travel Organizer is bursting with pockets, straps, and zippers to keep all of your tech gear organized and untangled while you’re on the road. Get it for an all-time low $15 today with code LZ7RJD72.


65" Sceptre 4K TV | $400 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Update: Alert! The price on this TV just went down to $400, the best price we’ve ever seen on a 65" 4K set.

Advertisement

If size trumps features in your hierarchy of TV needs, this 65" Sceptre 4K TV is a steal for just $430, one of the best prices we’ve seen for a TV of this size. It doesn’t have smart apps or HDR, but what it does have is four HDMI ports, which is more than you get in a lot of high end TV sets.


Private Internet Access Exclusive Deals
Graphic: Private Internet Access

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.

Advertisement

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.

BEST HOME DEALS

Gaiam Balance Ball Chair | $59 | Amazon
Image: Amazon

A finalist in our inexpensive office chair co-op, the Gaiam balance ball chair has a rare discount to under $60 today. This chair can help improve your core strength and balance, and stop you slouching, all while you’re sitting at your desk.

There are bunch of colors to pick from, and although this isn’t the best price we’ve seen on these chairs, it is a good $10 off the usual.


FoodSaver 5800 | $120 | FoodSaver
Photo: Amazon

FoodSavers can pay for themselves by keeping your frozen and refrigerated food fresher for longer, and that’s not even accounting for how great they are for sous vide.

This 5800-series model is one of the best your can buy. It automates every part of the process, from the bag feeding, to the sealing, to the cutting, and includes a handheld vacuuming hose that you can use with compatible FoodSaver accessories as well. You can buy it from FoodSaver’s site for just $120 right now, which is about half what Amazon is currently charging, and easily an all-time low.


Bostitch Compressor + Brad Nailer | $167 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Whether you’re filling tires or firing pneumatic tools, this BOSTITCH electric pancake compressor is a great addition to any garage, and you can pick it up for $167 in today’s Gold Box, plus a free bundled brad nailer to use with it.

Advertisement

The compressor currently sells for $170 by itself, and the nailer would normally set you back $89 in addition, so no pressure, but this is a really good deal, and it’s only available today.


AmazonBasics Hanging Toiletry Bag | $11 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Luggage gets all the attention, but if you ask me, a good toiletry bag is just as important for maintaining your sanity while traveling. AmazonBasics’ hanging toiletry bag is one of our readers’ favorites, and you can grab it for just $11 today, within $.01 of an all-time low.

There are a lot of other AmazonBasics discounts running right now, so be sure to check those out as well.


Your KitchenAid can be used for a lot more than just mixing batters and doughs. Plug in this $63 attachment (the best price since May), and it can also core apples, peel fruits, and spiralize vegetables into healthy “noodles.”


Bamboo Mattress Pad with Fitted Skirt | $67-$88 | Amazon | Promo code KINJAPAD
Photo: Amazon

You don’t necessarily need to buy a new mattress to get a better night’s sleep: Sometimes, a mattress pad will do, and one of Amazon’s most popular options is 25% off today with promo code KINJAPAD.

Advertisement

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—and extremely soft—bamboo cover.

They sent me one to try out, and while I had no prior complaints about my Casper, the pad added a welcome boost to softness, without getting warm at night. This is not like the memory foam topper that you used in your dorm room to improve that awful mattress. Your bed will still feel like your bed, just a cozier, nicer version of it. I’m actually laying in bed as I write this, and it feels like I’m on a really nice hotel mattress.

Prices range from just $67-$88 today after the promo code, which takes 25% off all sizes.


Samsung POWERbot R9350 Turbo Robot Vacuum | $798 | Amazon
Graphic: Amazon

I won’t bury the lede here: this is a $798 robotic vacuum. And while that’s $100 less than usual, and within about $20 of the best price ever, it’s still a lot of money. And yet, it may just be worth it.

With Alexa support, a suite of sensors that map your house in detail to determine the best cleaning plan, and massive suction power, it’ll earn its place by keeping your floors spotless.


Dyson AM09 Fan/Heater | $279 | Amazon
Image: Woot

This Dyson AM09 looks like a futuristic portal to another dimension, but really it’s a fan and space heater. Today on Amazon, you can grab it for (an admittedly still expensive) $279, which is about $100 less than usual, and a match for the deal we’ve seen in “leaked” Black Friday ads.

Advertisement

You can set it to work like a thermostat, turning on and off within set temperature ranges, and with both heating and cooling functionality, you’ll be able to use it year ‘round.


Victorinox’s Fibrox 8” chef’s knife is one of your favorite chef’s knives period, and by far the best value in the industry. It’s also the knife I’ve used almost every day for over six years. Amazon has it for $30 right now, which is an absolute steal for the quality you’re getting.


Crane & Canopy Bath Sheets | 15% off with promo code KINJA15

If you’re still using a regular ol’ bath towel to dry off after your daily scrubbing, you’re doing it wrong. Bath sheets are basically the bath towel’s bigger, more luxurious cousin, and for a limited time, you can get one of your own from Crane & Canopy for 15% off of their usual price of $48 each, using promo code KINJA15.

Advertisement

Measuring in at a whopping 40" by 70", these bath sheets are 67% larger than your typical bath towel, and they’re made from finely combed, long-staple cotton for an extra soft and absorbent feel. We’ve previously tested out these bath sheets and were particularly impressed by their most surprising, yet ingenious feature: a built-in loop for effortless hanging.

Snag your own set in any of six available colors by November 12, when this deal runs dry.


Somewhat counterintuitively, dull kitchen knives are more dangerous than sharp ones, as they’re more likely to slip off the side of whatever you’re cutting, and go into your hand.

Advertisement

Luckily, you don’t necessarily need to buy a new knife to get a sharp edge; this professional electric sharpener is down to its lowest ever price on Woot, today only. Boasting a fantastic 4.6 star review average from over 1,000 customers on Amazon, the Chef’s Choice 15 XV can even convert standard 20 degree edges into even sharper 15 degree edges, meaning your knives could actually come out sharper than they were when you first bought them. Get it for $80 today on Woot, if you’re a Prime member.


Dr.meter Damaged Screw Extractor and Remove Set | $5 | Amazon | Use code VSEBXHYU
Graphic: Shep McAllister

There are a couple different DIY fixes (toothpicks, rubber bands, etc) to remove stripped or damaged screws, but if you don’t have the time or patience to try those out, consider grabbing this $5 Dr. Meter kit. It includes four drill bits that grip into stripped screws, making them easier to remove. Just be sure to enter VSEBXHYU at checkout.


AmazonBasics Holiday Clearance | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

AmazonBasics makes pretty much everything at this point, and generally speaking, it’s a brand you can count on to be affordable and of good quality. While Amazon runs discounts on individual AmazonBasics products with some regularity, a whole bunch of it is on sale right now.

A few favorites are below, but dozens of other products are included, so head over to Amazon to see the full list.


Rivet and Stone & Beam Furniture Sale | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Amazon makes its own furniture under the Rivet and Stone & Beam brand names, and it actually looks really good! Whether you could use an extra lamp, an ottoman, or an entire leather sofa, a bunch of popular pieces are on sale right now for up to 25% off.

I know that list prices and listed “savings” on Amazon are usually bogus, which is why we don’t often pay them any heed. Today though, the pieces I spot checked actually were discounted by the “You Save” amount listed on the product page. It seems that the price is pulling from the last listed price, which in some cases is higher than the product often sells for, but every deal I’ve checked has been good.

Advertisement

For example, this $158 coffee table says it’s $91 off today, and it does, in fact, often sell for $250. It also frequently sells for less, and has even been a little bit cheaper than $157 on a few short-lived occasions, but this is still an excellent deal. That leather couch I mentioned earlier, on the other hand, has legitimately never been discounted from $1100 until today, so you really are saving $220 no matter how you parse it. So go forth, and shop with confidence.


PBfit All-Natural Peanut Butter Powder 8 Ounce | $7 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you can get over the weirdness of preparing peanut butter from a powder, PBfit lets you indulge with 90% less fat and only 1/3 of the calories of the real thing; just add water. If you’re curious to try it out, it’s a few bucks less than usual on Amazon today, with extra savings available when you use Subscribe & Save. You can always cancel after your first jar ships, but who knows, maybe this will become a pantry staple for you.


Everyone ought to own a good old fashioned Swiss Army Knife, and Amazon has this classic model marked down to just $11 today. Whenever a box needs cutting, a bottle needs opening, or a screw needs tightening, a branch needs sawing, everyone respects the person with the utility knife.


Typically selling for $14, you can grab yourself a two-pack of Amazon’s best-selling silicone baking mats for $8.

Advertisement

If you haven’t used one before, you should now that nothing will stick to these. They’re made of silicone, flexible, and fit onto standard-sized baking sheets, making clean up a breeze. Plus, since you won’t be baking nonstick spray into your cookie sheets, they’ll look like new for longer.

In addition to being bestsellers, these mats boast a near-perfect 4.7-star rating with over 2,600 reviews.


Three Bottles of Wine + Free Shipping | $15 | Firstleaf | Promo code Kinja. New members only
Photo: Zachariah Hagy (( ( ( ( ( (Unsplash)

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 today.

Advertisement

Every new Firstleaf member gets an introductory delivery with three bottles of wine for just $15, plus $5 shipping. Considering that you aren’t locked in and can cancel any time, that’s a bargain. But it gets even better for our readers, as promo code Kinja will waive the $5 shipping charge, for a limited time. That’s three bottles of wine (all of mine had MSRPs over $20) for just $5 each shipped, with no commitment.

You can read more about the service in my review, but if you choose to remain a member (I did), every box thereafter includes six bottles for $80, plus $10 shipping.

BEST LIFESTYLE DEALS

Men’s and Women’s Uggs | Nordstrom Rack | Up to 70% Off
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

We’re pro-Ugg here at The Inventory, which is why we are so Ugg-cited about this Ugg-cellent deal on Uggs over at Nordstrom Rack. (Sorry, just had to get that out). The coziest footwear is going for up to 70% off of both men’s and women’s, including one of our favorite low-cut styles for guys. These will likely sell out fast, so get your Uggs before this deal gets the boot.


Preorder Ultralight LoftTek Adventure Jacket | $99 | Kickstarter

Down jackets are warm and packable, synthetic jackets offer great water resistant, but Outdoor Vitals worked with LoftTek to develop a new fill material that marries the advantages of both, and stuffed it into a really nice jacket.

GIF: Kickstarter

The Ultralight LoftTek Adventure Jacket is very warm (at least compared to my Uniqlo Ultralight Down), and after running it under the sink for 30 seconds and detecting no moisture inside, I can confirm that it’s also extremely waterproof. The secret is the custom LoftTek synthetic fill, which is basically sorcery.

Advertisement

Beyond the fill though, the jacket is packed with great features, like zip-up under-arm vents, an insulated hood, thumb holes on the sleeves, and an athletic fit that’s more flattering than most puffers. The jacket’s expected to ship next April for $150 (which is a very fair price, honestly), but you can preorder it on Kickstarter for $99.


SUNUV 36W UV LED Nail Lamp Dryer | $32 | Amazon
Image: Amazon

There are a lot of reasons why gel manicures are preferable to regular nail polish. Gels last so. much. longer. than not-gels. They don’t chip. They stay shiny for weeks. And most importantly, your nails are dry when you leave the salon, so there’s no risk of messing up your new nail look. But there is a downside: A set of gels isn’t cheap, and it’s not really something you can DIY at home — until now. Get yourself your very own gel polish curing dryer in today’s Amazon Gold Box for just $32, and take your next gel manicure into your own hands.

Advertisement

This SUNUV 36-watt Nail Lamp Dryer has all the bells and whistles of a salon-quality dryer. It works with both UV and LED gel polish, boasts a low heat mode for maximum comfort, and has a smart sensor that automatically starts the built-in timer once you put your hand in. Overall, this deal really nails it.


NCAA Joggers | $30 | Fanatics | Promo code KINJA20
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Whether your alma mater is bowl eligible, or if you’re already looking forward to tonight’s big college basketball tip-off (because why would you watch anything else on TV tonight!!), games are best enjoyed laying on your couch in a comfortable pair of team-branded joggers. Find your favorite school on this page, and use promo code KINJA20 to get any pair for $30.


30% Off Personalized Jewelry | Walmart
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Now’s your chance to make a name for yourself. Walmart is taking 30% off their personalized jewelry until November 7, so you can adorn yourself with your own name (or any other word, in theory). Take a page out of Carrie Bradshaw’s book and get your own name etched in gold for just $22. Or go the Taylor Swift route and wear your beau’s initial on a chain ‘round your neck for $34. Anyway, who doesn’t love a gift with their name on it?


Two-Pack Darn Tough Cushioned Work Socks | $30 | MassDrop
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Darn Tough lost out by barely a dozen votes to Smart Wool as your favorite socks, so if you’re a diehard Darn Tough fan, here’s a sale you can get on board with. Pick up two pairs of Darn Tough cushioned work socks for just $30 on MassDrop, down from the usual $20-$25 per pair.


Good American Sale | HauteLook
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

We’re not trying to say that it’s your patriotic duty to take advantage of this deal on Good American jeans. (There are other important civic responsibilities to focus on this week.) But if you’re in the market for some denim, it’s worth heading over to HauteLook to check out this sale.

Advertisement

A good variety of both regular and plus-size styles from the Khloé Kardashian-founded brand are around 60% off, plus several of the reality star’s signature bodysuits. I’ve actually worn a few pairs of the jeans — most styles feature a good amount of stretch and an extra high rise — which I found to be above average in terms of comfort and shockingly flattering. They’re not necessarily the sturdiest denim around, but they look and feel pretty damn good (American — sorry, had to).
