Today’s Best Tech Deals

Sonos Refurb Sale | Sonos | Some colors not available
Graphic: Sonos

We occasionally see deals on individual Sonos refurbished products, but we’ve never seen a refurb sale like this.

Advertisement

For a limited time, you can grab a Sonos Play:1 for $119, a Sonos One with Alexa and Google Assistant for $139, a Play:5 for $399, a Playbar for $549, and a Sonos Sub for $549.

Note: If one color is showing up as out of stock, try the other.

The $119 Play:1 is the refurb deal we’re most used to seeing (though it’s been quite some time), but the others are extremely rare. Savings compared to buying them new range from $30 to $150, and you get the same one year warranty, free shipping, and free returns that you’d get with brand new speakers. So whether you’re starting your Sonos setup, or adding to the family, you’ll want to grab these before they’re gone.


Peak Design Travel Tripod | Kickstarter

When Peak Design launches a new product, we take notice, and their latest Kickstarter campaign goes back to the company’s photographic roots.

GIF: Peak Design

The Peak Design Travel Tripod purports to be one of the most compact full-sized travel tripods on the market, thanks to a unique design that eliminates wasted, empty space with form-fitted legs and pieces that fit together perfectly. Packed down, its maximum diameter is only 3.25" across, compared to well over 4" for most tripods in this class. But it still boasts a 60" maximum height, and can hold 20 pounds of gear, so it’s not sacrificing flexibility or strength to achieve that svelte design.

A single, “precision engineered” adjustment ring on the ball head makes it easy to articulate your camera or lock it in place at any angle, and you can even convert the tripod into a “Low Mode” with the included hex wrench, which hangs the camera under the legs rather than balancing it above them.

GIF: Peak Design

My favorite little feature, though, has to be the included universal phone mount, which stows away inside the center column when not in use, so you’ll never lose it or leave it at home. That means that even if you don’t want to take all of your heavy camera gear out on a hike, you could still bring along the tripod to get some stunning shots and long exposures with your phone.

Peak Design has already raised nearly $2,000,000 on Kickstarter for this campaign, and if you know Peak, you know that this is a rare opportunity to save money on their gear. The aluminum version of the Travel Tripod will set you back $289 (compared to $350 once it releases), and the lighter carbon fiber version is priced at $479 (compared to $600). That’s a lot of money, but Peak is undefeated in delivering class-leading, ultra high-quality products, so it’ll likely be money well spent if you take photography seriously.


Samsung 65" Q6FN QLED TV | $900 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you want a big TV that looks great, but don’t want to shell out for an OLED set, Samsung’s QLED TVs strike a nice middle ground. They offer some of the best color reproduction of any LCD set thanks to quantum dot tech, and hold their own on the black level front as well. Today at Walmart, you can score a 65" Q6 model for $900, which is about $250 less than what’s currently on Amazon.

Compared to Q-sets higher up the lineup, the Q6 loses out on (admittedly impressive) features like full array local dimming and Samsung’s higher-end HDR engine that you’d get from the Q7, Q8, and Q9, but it’ll still look better than pretty much any conventional LED TV.


Anker SoundCore Boost | $50 | Amazon | Promo code KINJAA3145
Photo: Amazon

Anker’s original SoundCore has long been one of our readers’ favorite affordable Bluetooth speakers, and today you can save on the bigger, louder SoundCore Boost.

While the original sounds great with dual 6W drivers, the Boost upgrades you to dual 10W drivers, so it should be loud enough to fill a large room, even during a party. The biggest difference though will be on the low end, with dual subwoofers and a “Boost” button that instantly boosts your bass. A speaker this small probably isn’t going to rattle your floor, but the sound will be a lot fuller than you’d expect from a portable speaker.

Advertisement

Unfortunately, this does come at the expense of battery life; the Boost gets 12 hours on a charge compared to the SoundCore’s 24. That’s still pretty impressive though, especially since it’s barely any larger than the original. It’s also IPX5 water resistant, so it can take a splash.

Today’s $56 list price is already $24 less than the usual $80, and promo code KINJAA3145 will save you an extra $6 on top of that. Needless to say, that’s the best deal we’ve ever seen.


Today’s Gold Box is lowering the price on a ton of PC gaming gear. Inside, you’ll find components, Razer peripherals, routers, mesh networks, monitors and more all marked down to great low prices.

My favorite gaming mouse, the Razer Basilisk is down to just $45 today.

Just remember that these deals are only available today, and the best stuff could sell out early. Of course, there’s a ton of gear here, so make sure to visit the main page to see all of your options.


eero + eero Beacon | $239 | Amazon
eero + Two eero Beacons | $319 | Amazon
Three-Pack eero routers | $399 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

If Amazon’s recent acquisition of eero didn’t scare you off the pioneer in mesh networking, the retailer is celebrating its new networking play-thing with big discounts across the board, for a limited time.

Get a an eero and an eero Beacon (which plugs straight into the wall and doubles as a night light) for $239 (a $60 discount), an eero and two beacons for $319 (an $80 discount), or for the largest and most densely constructed houses, three full eero routers for $399 (a $100 discount). To be clear, If you live in a one bedroom apartment, you don’t need any of these, but if you find that a single router doesn’t get you a reliable Wi-Fi signal in every part of your house, mesh systems like these are a godsend.


Anker Nebula Capsule II | $530 | Amazon | Promo code CAPSULE2

Anker’s Nebula Capsule II addressed just about every shortcoming from the original soda can-sized Capsule projector, and now you can save $50 on it for the first time (if you don’t count the Kickstarter preorder discounts) with promo code CAPSULE2.

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.

Advertisement

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.

Don’t forget, if you follow us on Instagram, you can still enter to win one of these for free. If you win, you could always return the one you bought to Amazon.


Tile Pro 4-Pack With Replaceable Batteries | $75 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

Tile recently released new gadget finders with user-replaceable batteries, addressing a longstanding concern, and in my opinion, eliminating any reasonable justification for not buying at least one.

Now, you can pick up four Tile Pros for just $75, which is within $1 of an all-time low, and basically like buying three and getting one for free.

Advertisement

The Pro is water resistant, has a 300' range (twice as far as the Tile Mate), and an extra loud speaker. I have a Tile on my keychain, which I’ve used just as often to find my phone as I have to find my keys, and even if you can’t think of four things you want to keep track of, maybe you could go in on this purchase with a friend or two.


Circle with Disney | $24 | Amazon

Disney is apparently a consumer electronics company now, and their Circle seems like a must-buy piece of gear for every parent.

Advertisement

Circle syncs with your home Wi-Fi, and lets you set content filters, app-by-app time limits, and a whole lot more on any iOS or Android device. I honestly have no clue how this works (Disney magic, I guess?), but reviews are solid, and today’s $24 price is the best we’ve ever seen.


Vizio 3.1.2 Channel Dolby Atmos Sound Bar | $700 | Amazon
Graphic: Amazon

Dolby Atmos is the future of home theater audio, and you don’t even have to pay thousands of dollars to install ceiling-mounted speakers to enjoy it. This 3.1.2 channel Vizio sound bar includes three front channels, a subwoofer, and two speakers that fire upwards at an angle to bounce sound off your ceiling.

Normally priced at $800, today’s $700 price is the best we’ve seen in several months, so you can raise the roof for less.


Anker just keeps on iterating on its true wireless earbuds, and now, you can get the new Soundcore Liberty Neos for an all-time low $45, down from the usual $60-$65.

As Anker’s new budget true wireless buds, there aren’t too many bells and whistles here, save for the ability for both earbuds to operate independently (many true wireless earbuds have one bud pair to the other, rather than both pairing to your phone), and Bluetooth 5.0, which ensures a rock solid connection from a longer distance.

Advertisement

The earbuds claim to last for 3.5 hours on a charge, and the charging case includes 12 hours worth of battery life too for longer sessions. That’s not as much as some of Anker’s more expensive models, but honestly, it’s enough for most situations.

Amazon Echo Wall Clock | $25 | Amazon
GIF: Shep McAllister

Amazon’s Echo Wall Clock is a revelation for the specific subset of people who:

a) Use Alexa timers in the kitchen with some regularity.

b) Don’t have an Echo with a screen built in.

Just pop in some batteries, hang the clock, and a ring of LEDs will automatically count down the minutes and final 60 seconds of any timer you set with your voice. It’s elegant, seamless, and I can’t stand how much I love the thing.

It came out late last year for $30, but it just got its first discount ever, down to $25. The clock is ticking on this deal though, so don’t waste any time.


3M Ultrathon Insect Repellant Lotion | $6 | Amazon
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

Summer is right around the corner. While we’re excited about warm weather, we’re not ready to be eaten alive by mosquitos for three months straight. They aren’t the only bugs that crawl out of their hell holes to feast upon our blood during the summer.

If you’re constantly finding bug bites all over your body after spending five minutes outside, grab a bottle of 3M Ultrathon Insect Repellant Lotion while it is on sale for a few bucks off. It not only repels mosquitos but also ticks, biting flies, chiggers, gnats, fleas, and deer flies.


AmazonBasics Bath Products Sale | Amazon
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

Did that Twitter thread about how many towels you need in your house totally blow your mind? The general consensus was you can never own too many towels. If you’re in desperate need of restocking your linen closet, you’ll want to shop the AmazonBasics Bath Products Sale, while some items are up to 67% off.

When it comes to hand towels, you truly can go overboard when buying them. Hand towels in your bathroom and kitchen are often teeming with bacteria, so honestly, you should toss out any towels you’ve had for years and years. You can get a 6-pack of gray towels for only $8.


Hefty Disposable Plastic Cups, 100 Count | $7 | Amazon | Clip 25% off coupon
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

Are you hosting a Memorial Day party this year? One thing that you’ll run out of fast is cups. People are savages and don’t ever seem to reuse their cups and just keep getting new ones with every drink. Blame it on the alcohol.

Right now, you can get a 100 pack of Hefty Disposable Plastic Cups for only $7, when you clip the 25% off coupon on your first order. You can even save a little extra if you Subscribe & Save on Amazon. You might as well, summer is here and that means BBQ season is officially in session.

Ecobee3 Lite | $120 | Woot
Ecobee4 | $180 | Woot
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

While they don’t have the brand recognition of Nest’s learning Thermostat, Ecobee’s smart thermostats one-up their most popular competitor by pairing with wireless remote sensors that you can place elsewhere in your house, giving them a more accurate picture of your home’s overall temperature. Plus, they work with Siri and Alexa, and the new Ecobee4 actually has Alexa built-in, meaning it’s basically an extra Echo Dot on your wall.

Both the new Ecobee4 and Ecobee3 Lite (which doesn’t come with remote sensors, though you can add them separately) are $20 and $15 off their usual price, respectively.


Amazon is offering up Sunjoy’s Zero Gravity Chair in the Gold Box today for just $30. This lounger features a lockable reclining system that adjusts to fit your body perfectly, plus a folding mechanism for when it’s time to put it in storage for the winter. The chair is available in six colors, so there’s almost certainly one to match your yard aesthetic, and — maybe the best part — there’s no assembly required.

For those interested in maximum luxury, a selection of Oversize Zero Gravity Chairs are also included in the sale for $40.


Dremel 3000 | $45 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

You might not need to use a Dremel all that often, but it’s one of those things everyone should keep in their tool box, if only for sanding wood and carving jack-o-lanterns. Today only as part of a Gold Box deal, Amazon’s discounting the Dremel 3000 to an all-time low $45 (from about $65-$70).

Advertisement

August Third Generation Smart Lock | $99 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

August’s third generation Smart Lock lets you lock and unlock your door from using your phone, and you can get the silver model for just $99 today, the same price we saw on Black Friday,

Advertisement

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.

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 control it over the internet from anywhere. You can send guest keys without the bridge, but you can’t use Alexa or remotely lock or unlock the door.

Everlane’s Choose What You Pay section (which, for the unindoctrinated, allows shoppers to choose from three different, discounted price points for an item) is always a good source of savings on some of the brand’s coveted, stylish basics, but it’s usually pretty limited. That is, until now.

Advertisement

Everlane has flooded their Choose What You Pay sections for both men and women with a ton of new overstocked inventory, including a selection of coveted Everlane denim and shoes for the ladies and a range of chinos for guys. This is likely the last you’ll see of these styles, so take your pick before they sell out, as many of Everlane’s offerings are wont to do.

We’ve tried out Enso’s Elements ring, which incorporates real metal into the silicone for a bit of shine, and while it won’t fool anyone up close, we were still impressed. But they also offer a ton of other styles too, some starting around $10, and they’re all included in the sale as well. Hell, they’re cheap enough that you could buy several, and pick one based on your mood or outfit.

Graphic: Shep McAllister

If regular hiking is a little too slow and leisurely for your tastes, maybe this can be the summer that you take up mountain biking.

This 29" Mongoose is a solid starter bike for just $149. While its steel frame is heavier than more expensive aluminum bikes, it does feature Shimano A-series components. Those are Shimano’s lower-end parts, but as our deal researcher Corey put it, “they’re miles better than low end non-Shimano components.”

Shipping is free, but if you want it sooner, you can probably also order online for in-store pickup at your nearest Walmart.

The Legend of Zelda Concert 2018 Limited Edition Soundtrack | $48 | Amazon


Update: This deal is back in stock, if you missed it several weeks ago.

From the NES days all the way up to Breath of the Wild, Legend of Zelda games have featured some of the most stirring, evocative, and recognizable scores in all of gaming. You don’t need any further proof than the fact that there’s literally a touring orchestra show dedicated solely to the series.
