Best Tech Deals

Viewsonic Monitors and Projectors Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Today’s Gold Box is lowering the price on a number of Viewsonic Monitors and Projectors, with prices starting at just $104. Whether you’re looking for a gaming panel with a high refreshed rate, curved, widescreen 4K, or just a no-frills unit, you’ve got options here.


2-Pack Anker Soundcore Flare Speakers | $60 | Amazon | Promo code KINJAB3161
Graphic: Shep McAllister

This 2-pack of Anker Soundcore Flare speakers is down to it’s lowest price ever at just $60 with exclusive promo code KINJAB3161 (and the $70 list price was actually a terrific deal on its own). They feature 360 degree audio, IP67 water resistance, and even a beat-driven ring of LED lights along the bottom, so you can really get the party going. Sounds like a great deal if you ask me.


Refurb Apple Watch Series 4 44mm (Silver/White) | $330 | Walmart

The Apple Watch Series 4 is kind of a marvel, at least compared to the Series 1 model currently on my own wrist, so I’m awfully tempted by this refurb sale on the larger, 44mm model, the best discount we’ve seen.

$330 is a $99 discount from the usual $429, and the deal is only available on one size, in two colors, with no cellular option available. But if you’ve been trying to stop yourself from buying one since you first saw it in the Apple Store (guilty), this deal might just be tempting enough for you.


If you like the idea of keeping your credit cards and phone attached at the hip, but don’t want to saddle your beautiful phone with a bulky case, this $7 CardNinja can attach right onto the back with easily-removable 3M adhesive. Once it’s attached, the elastic pouch allows it to store up to 8 cards, plus some cash, meaning you really can ditch your wallet.


20% Off AmazonBasics AV Essentials | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

It’s a law of nature that whatever AV cable you need at any given time to set up a home theater, you inexplicably won’t have it. Unless, of course, you stock up on essentials from this AmazonBasics sale.

HDMI cables, speaker cables, subwoofer cables, and even a UPS power supply that can protect your equipment and even keep it running for a short time in a power outage are all 20% off. Fight the laws of nature, this is one battle you can win.


RAVPower 6700mAh Battery Pack/Wall Charger Combo | $20 | Amazon | Promo code KINJA802

Update: The $4 coupon is gone, but you can still get it for $20 with code KINJA802.

The Anker PowerCore Fusion is one of our biggest sellers ever, because it combines a USB wall charger and a portable battery pack into a single product. Now, RAVPower has their own alternative with a slightly larger 6700mAh battery inside, and you can grab it for just $16 after clipping the $4 coupon and using promo code KINJA802.

RAVPower sent me one to check out, and despite the larger battery inside, it’s barely bigger or heavier than the Anker, and a no-brainer purchase if you don’t already own a product like this. For example, I use one at my mother in law’s house, where there’s no outlet near my nightstand. I just plug it into an outlet on the other side of the room during the day, and come bedtime, I just bring it over and use it as a battery on my nightstand, where it has enough juice to recharge my phone and Apple Watch.


Neewer Ring Light Kit | $80 | Amazon | Promo code RLBTAPR19

Time is a flat circle, and so is the most flattering light source known to man. Today, you can brighten up your day and your face with a Neewer Ring Light Kit, down to $80 on Amazon when you use promo code RLBTAPR19.

Ring lights are beloved by Instagram influencers and beauty vloggers alike for their downright mystical ability to neutralize splotches and blemishes resulting in a soft, flawless glow. It would make a great gift for the aspiring YouTuber in your life, or just use it to look awesome in your next selfie. (I’m speaking from personal experience here; I was once photographed using an acquaintance’s ring light, and the resulting image became my Twitter profile picture for the next two years.)


Amazon Fire TV Stick | $25 | Woot
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Amazon’s Fire TV Stick is a great little streaming dongle with all of the power of Alexa at its disposal, and you can save $15 on yours today on Woot. It’s not the new model with 4K and HDR support, but for a bedroom TV, it’s probably all you need.

Best Home Deals

Tuft & Needle Mattresses | $280-$600 | Amazon | Today only

Are you still sleeping on a mattress that you didn’t buy on the internet and get shipped to you in a box? You can fix that today with Amazon’s limited time Tuft & Needle sale. 

Advertisement

The concept here is basically the same as any other bed-in-a-box company. The mattress is made of foam, and thus can be vacuum sealed into a relatively small shipping box. You can try it for up to 100 days, and if you decide it’s not for you, they’ll come pick it up from your house and refund all of your money. If you’re currently using an inner spring mattress though, I think you’re going to be very, very happy.

Tuft & Needle’s mattresses are pretty affordable at their regular MSRP, but Amazon’s taking about 20% off every size today, complete with Prime shipping and the aforementioned trial period. We’ve seen a few slightly cheaper one-day deals, but I wouldn’t lose sleep over that.


The Claw | $12 | 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 $12 today (down from $22), the lowest price they’ve ever listed.


Dash Deluxe Egg Cooker | $18 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

The original Dash Egg Cooker was one of the fastest items to ever join our bestseller pantheon, and now, you can score the Deluxe model for just $18, the best price we’ve seen in months thanks to today’s Gold Box. This is the same Dash our readers know and love, but now it can cook a full dozen eggs at once, rather than just six.


$100 Off Goodyear Tire Bundles | Walmart
$60 Off Pirelli Tire Bundles | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

You really don’t want to mess around with worn down tires. If you’ve been putting off replacing them for far too long, Walmart’s currently taking $100 off select Goodyear four-tire bundles, and $60 off select four-tire Pirelli bundles.

Our resident tire expert, Corey, says that the Goodyears are generally your best bet, especially with the larger discount, but $60 is a solid deal on the cheaper Pirelli four-packs too. Bundles are priced as marked, and while there isn’t a tool to sort by your make and model, you can sort options by size and width. Just look up your car here, or go look at the numbers on the sidewalls of your current tires to be sure you’re buying compatible replacements.

Most tire deals we see come in the form of rebates, which is fine, but give me a cash discount any day of the week.


Tomorrow’s Kitchen Silicone Stretch Lids 12-Pack | $16 | 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.

Advertisement

That’s exactly the promise of EcoLifeMate’s silicone stretch lids, now available in a 12-pack of various sizes for $16 with promo code 20OFFKINJA, beating their holiday pricing by a couple of bucks.


AmazonBasics 25' String Lights | $12 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Just in time for spring, Amazon now makes its own outdoor string lights, and you can get a 25' strand for the best price ever.

Advertisement

Each strand is 25' long, weatherproof, and holds 25 incandescent bulbs. Plus, the cords are rated for enough power to chain three of them together into 75’ mega-strand that could light up your entire backyard.


Whether in a car during a long road trip, or just at your desk at work, there is no greater luxury than a private mini fridge, just for you and your snacks. The adorable Uber Chill comes in multiple colors, can hold 12 cans, and is only $59 today with promo code KINJA15OFF (note: code takes 15% off, so the more expensive colors will cost more).

Advertisement

Each Uber Chill comes with power cords both for wall outlets and car outlets, and with the flip of a switch, it can function as a food warmer instead of a refrigerator. Can your fridge do that? No, it cannot.

Note: Must be sold by KNG International, not Amazon.com.


Right now, Amazon’s discounting a few different options of our readers’ favorite cutting board brand, Boos Block, along with a bottle of butcher block oil. Choose from a number of finishes and sizes, including a 24" by 18" maple wood board for $90 or a smaller 20" by 15" version for $70, both of which include grooves to catch juices so they don’t end up on your counter.

A monthly application of the included oil will extend their life for a really long time. And since boards like these dull your knives less than most plastic boards, consider this an investment for your entire kitchen. Plus, they make awesome cheese boards.

Best Lifestyle Deals

25% Off Ahava Products | Ulta
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

The Dead Sea in Israel is known for its supremely salty water and mineral-rich mud; anyone who’s ever visited the site has likely slathered themselves in the stuff. And now, the Israeli skincare company that has bottled the uniquely nutrient-filled Dead Sea dirt is giving it away at a discount. All Ahava products currently on sail — er, sorry —sale at Ulta right now, with 25% off. Test out the Dead Sea Purifying Mud Soap, which sounds counterproductive, but isn’t; stay smooth with Mineral Hand Cream; or hydrate using one of the many lotions infused with Dead Sea botanicals before this deal is dead in the water.


Lucky Brand Men’s and Women’s Flash Sales | Nordstrom Rack
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

It’s your lucky day. Nordstrom Rack is marking down a whole lot of Lucky Brand apparel for men and women. For the guys, there’s denim aplenty up for grabs, along with several packs of boxers, while the ladies can score tons of marked-down tops, jackets, dresses, and jeans. Shop now, before you luck (and these great prices) run out.


Mario Badescu Drying Lotion, 2-pack | $25 | HauteLook
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

There are a lot of products out there that claim to zap your zits, but Mario Badescu’s Drying Lotion stands alone. This cult-favorite spot treatment is renowned for its ability to banish a breakout and calm skin down, and today, you can score a two-pack for just $25 — a great deal, when you consider that a single vial usually goes for $17.

Advertisement

You’ll notice that the solution in the bottle is separated: the pink clay-like substance at the bottom is topped with a clear liquid. DO NOT shake it up. Instead, use the Drying Lotion to dry out any pimples before bed by dipping a Q-tip into the pink stuff, then dabbing the paste-like concoction onto the zit. The offending blemish should be gone by morning.


Baby Foot | $20 | Ulta
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Warmer weather means sandals, which means your (probably gross from being in boots all winter) feet are about to be on display for all to see. So soften those things up with Baby Foot, the OG foot peel that put your gag reflex to the test when it went viral a few years back. Right now, this disgusting-yet-satisfying product is on sale for $20, that’s $5 off its usual price. But really, can you put a price on making your feet shed dead skin like a snake over the course of several days? I think no.

BEST MEDIA DEALS

Amazon’s new exclusive Cowboy Bebop box set is the ultimate gift for the anime fan in your life (even if that anime fan is, uh, you), and you can get it for $55 right now on Amazon, the best price they’ve ever listed outside of the holiday season.

To be clear, the standard complete series Blu-ray is just $30, but this Amazon-exclusive edition includes two different art books, and a limited edition box.

Best Gaming Deals

Corsair MM300 Extra Long Gaming Mouse Pad | $15 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Many of you won’t bat an eye in spending $50+ on a good gaming mouse, but don’t neglect the mouse pad! This extra long model from Corsair is available for $15 today, about $5 to $15 less than usual.


Nintendo Switch Bundle (Console, Game, Pins and backpack) | $330| Walmart
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Walmart’s letting you build your own Nintendo Switch bundle for just $330. Here’s what you’ll get:

  • a console, either neon blue/red or gray Joy-Cons
  • a game, pick from Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey, Super Mario Party, Splatoon 2, or The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  • an Ematic Backpack
  • and some sweet pins, either in Mario or Mario Kart flavors.

If you’ve been putting off buying a Switch... well, dude. I mean, come on. Last month’s bundle cost $10 less, were exclusively Mario games (no Splatoon or Zelda) and didn’t give you the option on pins and had a small case instead of a backpack. So, overall, I think this is a much better bundle deal.


Super Smash Bros. Ultimate | $50 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

Just this weekend, a GameStop employee told me that triple-A titles for the Switch like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate never, ever go on sale. Well, hell just froze over, because right now you can get this fan favorite for just $50, the best straight-up discount we’ve seen on this title.


Melissa & Doug Easter Sale | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Beautifully designed, well made, and straight-up adorable, Melissa & Doug toys are some of the best gifts you can give to a kid. And today’s Gold Box is offering big discounts on a number of items for the upcoming holiday.

Advertisement

Flamingos, bunnies, hand puppets, watering cans, puzzles, an abacus(?!), and more super cheap right now. But just remember, this is a Gold Box which means the discounts will only stick around until the end of the day or until sold out. So, check out the main post for all of the deals, ASAP.


Sony PlayStation Classic Console | $34 | Rakuten | Use code SAVE15
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

The PlayStation Classic doesn’t have Suikoden II, which means it’s a skip for me. But people who know better than me say it’s relatively straightforward to add some yourself. And even if you don’t bother hacking it, there’s still plenty worthwhile pre-loaded games to keep you entertained.

While $100 was a lot to ask, this SAVE15 coupon makes it easier to just bite the bullet and buy it for $34 already.

Deals You May Have Missed

15% Off Sitewide | Rakuten | Use code SAVE15 at checkout

Rakuten’s running another of its popular site-wide sales today and tomorrow, with 15% off all orders, with a $60 maximum discount with the promo code SAVE15. You can check out their promo page to scan all of the deals, but the beauty of this sale is you can “force” a sale on super new or rarely discounted products, like Triple A titles for the Nintendo Switch like Smash, controllers, and more.

This deal ends tomorrow, but there’s a limited supply on super popular items. So act fast.


Roav by Anker SmartCharge Halo | $14 | Amazon | Promo code ROAVF3WA

Just when you thought you had car chargers pegged, Anker went out and made the smartest one you’ve ever seen.

Advertisement

Similar to the Nonda Zus, the Roav by Anker SmartCharge Halo connects to your phone over Bluetooth while you drive. When you turn the car off and the Bluetooth connection breaks, the Roav app will mark down your parking location on a map, so you can find your way back.

Perhaps more usefully, every time you start your car, the SmartCharge will also log the health of your car battery, so you can track its charge over time from your phone, and get a replacement ready before you get stranded in your office parking garage on a Friday evening.

Advertisement

Those features alone (along with three total ports, including a Quick Charge 3.0 one) would make this worth $14 (with promo code ROAVF3WA), but it does have one last trick up its sleeve: A customizable accent light. The LED ring around the USB ports can display 16,000 different colors, and you can choose your favorite from the app to make it perfectly match (or stand out from) your car’s own dashboard lighting.


Amazon Echo Input | $20 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

Alexa, show me a good deal. The Echo Input lets you add Alexa to any speaker system you want via a 3.5mm cable or Bluetooth, and it’s down to just $20 on Amazon right now. To be fair, the Echo Dot can do this as well, but the Input is smaller and cheaper if you specifically want to use your existing speakers.


BioBidet Slim Edge Bidet | $26 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you don’t care to have LED lighting built into your bidet, or just don’t want to wait to make the long overdue switch from wiping poop off your butt with dry paper (sorry to be crass but that’s what we all do, it’s insane!!), Bio Bidet’s already-released Slim Edge bidet is on sale for just $26 today, with Prime shipping.

Like the upcoming Glow, it includes two nozzles (the other’s for feminine cleaning), brass fittings, and a slim, easy-to-install design. Trust us, your tush will thank you.
