Today’s Best Tech Deals

Anker Soundcore Life 2 Gift Bundle | $56 | Amazon | Clip the $24 coupon
Photo: Anker

From time to time, Anker offers gift bundles that offer multiple great products for an affordable price, and one of the best is even cheaper than usual today.

The Soundcore Life 2 gift set includes a set of Soundcore Life 2 over-ear noise canceling headphones, a PowerCore 5000 battery pack, a premium PowerLine+ microUSB charging cable, and a premium AUX cable for just $54 after clipping the $10 coupon.

For context, the headphones alone currently cost $54 (after clipping the $24 coupon), so you’re basically getting the battery and the premium cables for free, which is a bargain.


Philips Brilliance 499P9H 49" SuperWide Curved Monitor | $1000 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

I don’t really expect many of you to buy this monitor, but it’s so bonkers that I had to share it (it also doesn’t hurt that it’s cheaper than ever, and $200-$300 less than usual).

At 49" diagonal with a 32:9 aspect ratio, it’s got the resolution of two 2560x1440 widescreen monitors placed side by side, but with no annoying gap in the middle. It’s also slightly curved, which actually helps with viewing angles on a monitor this wide. At this price, you also get all the accoutrements you’d expect, like USB-C docking, a pop-up web cam, an ambient light sensor, HDR, and Adaptive-Sync for smoother gaming.

Ultrawides aren’t right for everyone, but depending on the type of work (or gaming) you do, they can prove to be a boon for productivity.

Anker Nebula Capsule II | $450 | Amazon | Clip the $30 coupon and use code CAPS2AUG

Anker’s Nebula Capsule II addressed just about every shortcoming from the original soda can-sized Capsule projector, and now you can save an unprecedented $130 on it by clipping the $30 coupon and using promo code CAPS2AUG at checkout.

Featuring a 720p sensor, double the brightness of its predecessor, Android TV built in, a great sounding speaker, and enough battery life to get through an entire movie, it’s basically a portable movie theater that you can take with you anywhere.

In my use, I found it to be a great portable TV that I could set up in rooms where I didn’t have (and didn’t want to have) an actual TV. Cleaning the bathroom? Set up the Capsule and binge The Office. Working on dinner? Project the NBA playoffs onto my backsplash. It’s definitely a big investment, but I think you’ll get more use out of it than the occasional, novelty outdoor film screening.


Moose Backpack | Kickstarter

Nearly two years after Moose Designs showed off its totally unique workstation bag, the company is back with a new, improved, and larger version that can be worn as a backpack, carried as a briefcase, or slung over your shoulder as a messenger bag.

Made from a water-resistant, slash-proof material, the Moose Backpack includes the same office-in-a-bag side panels that, to my knowledge, haven’t really been replicated by other bag manufacturers since the original Moose. Inside though, you obviously have a lot more space for things like camera gear (you can add $29 to your pledge for camera bag insert), clothes, charging accessories, or small things like pens and pencils that you can keep in water-resistant, removable compartments that attach to the inside with Velcro.

At a Super Earlybird price of $169, it’s not a cheap bag, but again, there’s nothing else quite like it, and if you do a lot of work in public places like coffee shops or airports, it could scratch just the right itch.


Vogek XXL Mouse Pad With Phone Stands | $14 | Amazon | Promo code 5J24O9LS

We’ve seen other oversized mouse pads before, but I have to say, built-in leather kickstands for your phone are a pretty unique touch. They fold flat into the mat when you don’t need them too, so your mouse can glide unabated. Use promo code VOGEK136 to get it for $15.


NETGEAR AC750 Wi-Fi Range Extender | $25 | Amazon | Clip the $5 coupon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Wi-Fi range extenders can’t work miracles, but if there’s one spot in your house with spotty coverage, they can be a much cheaper solution than buying a new router. So at $25, why not give this one a try?

Advertisement

It has a 3.9 star review average on over 42,000 (not a typo) reviews, so it’s been around the block, and has helped a lot of peoples’ home networks over the years. Just be sure to clip the $5 coupon to save at checkout.


Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus Graphing Calculator | $88 | Walmart
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

I don’t remember a single thing from high school math class, but I vividly remember the horrified look on my mom’s face when my freshman year school supplies list mandated that I purchase a TI-84 Plus Graphing Calculator, which normally retails at over $100. Hence why you don’t need to be some kind of math whiz to understand that $88 for said calculator is a great deal (you know, relatively speaking, but we all know these things should cost $10 max).

Head over to Walmart, and pick one up for less now, before that school supplies shopping rush starts up next month.

Today’s Best Home Deals

Turtle Wax Headlight Restoration Kit | $5 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Once, when I was young and naive, I paid a dealership like $75 to clean my foggy headlights. Little did I know, this Turtle Wax headlight restoration kit does just as well at a tiny fraction of the price. Get it for just $5 today, an all-time low.


X-Chew Silicone Cooking Gloves | $8 | Amazon | Clip the 5% off coupon and use promo code JSSLT8IG
Photo: Amazon

You can pull a tray of fresh cookies out of the oven without gloves or oven mitts on, but we wouldn’t advise it. Unless you enjoy burning your hands, then you do you. If you prefer to keep the skin on your hands safe, you can snag a pair of X-Chew Silicone Cooking Gloves for $8 on Amazon when you clip the 5% off coupon and use promo code JSSLT8IG. These gloves are safe to use for temperatures up to 446℉, so you can use them when cooking in your kitchen or at your grill outside. They’re also easy to clean and have a non-slip design. At $8, this is a no brainer deal to save your own skin.

Photo: Home Depot

If you were planning a trip to Home Depot for your next project, don’t put it off until the weekend. Today only, you can get up to 35% off select laminate flooring. If you don’t have time to run to Home Depot after work, you can order flooring online and get free delivery. From Home Decorators Collection, you can get Mesa Oak 12 mm Laminate Flooring for $1.19 per sq. ft. It has the look of real wood but has a scratch-resistant layer that’ll keep it fresh for much longer.


Mrs. Meyer’s Liquid Hand Soap Refill, Basil, 33 fl oz | $5 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Mrs. Meyer’s plant-based soap is normally priced at a premium, but with today’s deal on Amazon, it’s priced just right. Get a 33 ounce tub of the basil-scented hand soap for just $5, or about $1 less than usual. It’ll last you a long time, but hopefully not too long. Wash your hands, is what I’m saying.


First Alert Smoke and CO Alarms Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Today only, Amazon’s offering huge savings on First Alert smoke and carbon monoxide alarms as part of their Gold Box. Admittedly this is not a super exciting thing to buy, but it could be one of the most important purchase you’ll ever make.

Not only can these tools prevent death and property loss, but they can also make sure that your insurance actually kicks in. If it’s been more than a decade since you replaced your smoke detector, you should really look into picking up a new one. Or at least test the ones you’ve got.


Bosch 12V Pocket Driver With Two Batteries | $69 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

Bosch’s 12V power tools consistently punch above their weight, and you can grab a 2-speed pocket driver with two batteries for just $69 today, or $30 less than usual.

Advertisement

Unlike most cordless drills that hang a bulbous battery pack off the bottom of the handle, Bosch’s 12V tools use a slimline design where the battery fits entirely within the handle, making the drill far more maneuverable in tight spaces.


Today only, Amazon’s offering a rare discount puredown down pillows and comforters, plus a few outdoor blankets for good measure. A number of these products, including the 800 thread count goose down comforter, are down to their lowest price ever.

Just remember that these prices expire at the end of the day. Be sure to visit the main page to see all of the deals.


The Claw | $15 | Malboro & Kane
GIF: The Claw

The Claw claims to be the world’s smallest multitool, and there’s really no reason to doubt it. Roughly the same length as a penny, the little piece of titanium can open bottles and paint cans, turn screws, wedge open key rings, remove staples, and most critically of all, open up boxes that you ordered from Kinja Deals. Get it for $15 today (down from $30), no promo code required.


Le Papillon Hanging Patio Umbrella | $50 | Amazon | Clip $10 coupon and use promo code 7W879W6B
Photo: Amazon

Don’t freak out because summer is more than halfway done. Instead, shop all of the summer sales that are taking place before the fall is here. If you’ve been looking for a new patio umbrella, but haven’t found a good deal yet, you’re in luck. You can snag a Le Papillon Hanging Patio Umbrella for a mere $50 when you clip $10 coupon and use promo code 7W879W6B on Amazon. The only warning before you buy is this umbrella does need to be weighed down, or nailed to the deck.


Tomorrow’s Kitchen Silicone Stretch Lids 12-Pack | $14 | Amazon | Promo code 20OFFKINJA
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Lids are basically the socks of the kitchen; always getting lost, leaving orphaned containers that can never be closed again. But what if your lids could stretch and conform to all of of your leftover containers, pots, pans, and even large sliced fruits? You’d never have to worry about losing that very specific lid ever again.

That’s exactly the promise of EcoLifeMate’s silicone stretch lids, now available in a 12-pack of various sizes for $14 with promo code 20OFFKINJA, beating their holiday pricing by a couple of bucks.


KOHLER Novita Electric Bidet Seat | $380 | Amazon | Prime member exclusive
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Right now, Prime members can save 30% on an electric KOHLER Novita Electric Bidet Seat. With the exclusive on-page coupon, the price on this bidet drops by about $150.

Pablo tested one, and he was a fan:

It also doesn’t take a Jolie Kerr-level cleaning genius to intuit that water cleans much better than dry paper (and causes less damage to boot). It’s also more hygienic since it reduces the spread of bacteria. Oh, and let’s not forget about the fact that they are really fun to use.

This Kohler model has just about everything you’d want in a fancy toilet seat, including a seat warmer, LED light, multiple cleaning modes, a dryer and the lid will automatically open up when you enter the bathroom.

While I don’t own this particular unit, I’m a big proponent of bidet ownership. And if you’re interested in taking your bathroom breaks to another level, this is a really terrific opportunity. This discount applies to both the round and elongated seat versions.


Kershaw Cinder (1025X) Multifunction Pocket Knife | $7 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Tear those Amazon boxes a new one with this discounted pocket knife. Despite it’s diminutive build, this steel blade packs a lot of useful features including a bottle opener, lanyard hole and a liner lock.

Plus, it’s only $7, which is a few cents off the lowest price we’ve ever seen.


Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter | $349 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

Why pay for an electric scooter by the minute when you can just buy one outright for the best price ever? The Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter can cruise at 15+ mph for over 18 miles, depending on conditions, and includes some nice quality-of-life features like a built-in headlight and taillight, and a regenerative braking system to extend your range.

At just $349 (within $9 of the best price we’ve ever seen), it’s a better long term investment than the plague of electric scooters that befell our cities over the past year. Just don’t leave it in the middle of the damn sidewalk, please.


Whether you’re a seasoned backyard pit master, or this will be your first summer as a Smokeboy, ThermoWorks’ Smoke is our favorite tool for monitoring the temperature of both your smoker and the delicious meat inside.

Here’s what we had to say about the Smoke over on The Inventory:

The core features you should expect from a wireless probe thermometer are all here, but with Thermoworks trademark, Co-Op award-winningquality. The Smoke uses two probes so you can monitor your meat and smoker temp, but unlike similar thermometers, these probes are commercial-grade for better accuracy, higher temperature resistance, faster read speed, and increased durability. The Smoke is also extendable and compatible with the myriad of other Pro-Series ThermoWorks probes. If you don’t want to monitor pit temperature (you savage!) you can monitor two meats. Need to monitor two cookers for some reason? Monitor sous-vide water? Oven-roast two Turduckens? Deep fry scotch-eggs? Whatever. The ThermoWorks Smoke doesn’t care what you poke its probes into.

The Smoke (which includes a wireless receiver that you can wear around your neck) rarely goes on sale, but it’s 20% off for a limited time at ThermoWorks, in addition to a discount on the optional Smoke Wi-Fi Gateway, which lets you monitor your grill’s temperature on your phone anywhere in the world. Now go get that grill clean!

Nintendo Switch AC Adapter | $16 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Most USB-C PD chargers can safely charge a Nintendo Switch in portable mode. But if you want to plug in a Switch Dock, you’re better off sticking with the official, Nintendo power adapter, since it puts out a relatively odd 39 watts.
