HTC Vive | $480 | Amazon

If you’ve been keeping a lustful eye on the HTC Vive (and if you have a computer that can actually run the thing), it’s down to an all-time low $480 now on Amazon.

Advertisement

That’s only about $20 less than usual, but this thing doesn’t see discounts of any size very often. If you want to whet your appetite, here are some game ideas to mull over.

If you want the durability and lifetime warranty of Anker’s PowerLine II charging cables, but you own a lot of different devices, this $11 microUSB cable (with promo code ANKER3IN1) includes Lightning and USB-C adapters attached to the end. It’s a little awkward looking, but it’s nice to know you’ll always have the right cable handy.

Refurb Sony Wireless Noise Canceling Over-Ear Headphones | $55 | eBay

These aren’t Sony’s best noise canceling Bluetooth headphones—that honor goes to the $348 WH1000XM3s—but these wireless over-ears are still a fantastic deal for $55 refurbished, or $90 less than buying them new.

The WH-CH700Ns run for up to 30 hours in wireless noise canceling mode, or you can plug them in with a 3.5mm cord to extend that to 50 hours. If you travel a lot, or just work in a noisy office environment, this is a.. sound investment.

Charcoal Companion Cast Iron Sauce Pan & Basting Brush Set | $8 | Amazon

If your dad’s summer catchphrase is “let me fire up the grill,” we’ve got a little deal for you. You can get your dad the Charcoal Companion Cast Iron Sauce Pan & Basting Brush Set as an add-on gift for Father’s Day (maybe toss in some steaks as well). Your dad is going to baste the hell out of every meat he can get his hands on this summer. We hope your family likes BBQ!

FURminator for Cats Undercoat Deshedding Tool | $22 | Amazon
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

Summer is right around the corner, but do you know what else is? A clump of your dog’s fur on the floor. If your fur baby hasn’t finished shedding their winter coat quite yet, it is time to step in and help. Right now, you can get an assortment of FURminator grooming products on sale. The FURminator for Cats Undercoat Deshedding Tool is about $10 off. You can get a FURminator Dog Rake for about $9 off as well.

And if you wind up buying a few FURminator tools, you can choose the shampoo as your Amazon add-on item for only $4, if you spend $25.

Bug-A-Salt 2.0 Fly Gun | $30 | Walmart
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

If you spend most of your summer cowering away from bugs, cower no longer. Sometimes, bug spray just doesn’t cut it when flying bugs descend upon us. If you want to tell them to back the hell off, this Bug-A-Salt 2.0 Fly Gun is a couple of bucks off. The 2.0 version of this gun has greater accuracy than the previous model and uses less salt per shot, giving you about 80 shots before you need to reload. If your dad is always grumbling about flies and mosquitos, this would be a great gag (but useful) gift for Father’s Day.


ThermoWorks Thermapen | $59 | ThermoWorks

If you want to invest in your (or your dad’s) cooking, a good meat thermometer isn’t far behind a good knife in the hierarchy of important gear. And today, you can score a rare discount on the best thermometer out there. In fact, $59 is cheaper than the last open-box deal we saw on this thing.

Advertisement

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

Here are just a few readers gushing over the Classic model:

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 colors, whereas today you can pick from several.

Rubbermaid Easy Find Vented Lids Food Storage Container | $18 | Amazon

Rubbermaid’s Easy Find Lid sets are one of our favorite ways of storing leftovers, and one of our readers’ favorites too. Now, you can get the new assortment with microwave-ready vented lids for $18, the set’s first discount from its usual $20.

Advertisement

The secret to this set is that while its 21 containers come in six different sizes to suit your needs, it only requires three sizes of lids, making it much easier to find and identify one that fits at a glance. It sure beats that random assortment of deli meat containers and random tupperware pieces you’ve been using.

Takeya Cold Brew Maker | $18 | Amazon | Clip coupon on page
Advertisement

Iced coffee is a brilliant way to sell people ice for the price of coffee (which is mostly water to begin with). Cold brew on the other hand is a different process that results in less acidity, among other benefits, and you can do it yourself at home with this top-selling Takeya, now down to $18 on Amazon after you clip coupon on page.

Advertisement

This non-coffee drinker bought one of these a couple years ago, and I loved the thing (though admittedly, I have since upgraded to the OXO alternative). All you have to do is fill the basket with ground coffee, fill the container with water, and let it steep overnight in the fridge. The resulting coffee concentrate needs to be watered down, so one batch should last you several days.

Today’s Gold Box is discounting drills and saws from Worx and Rockwell. Prices start at $40 for Worx circular saw all the way up to a $97 cordless drill and driver kit.

Minger App and Music-Controlled Strip Light | $18 | Amazon | Promo code R8NNTV6U

$18 would be a good price for a barebones HDTV bias light that you have to get up off the couch to control. But today, that gets you a 16.4' strip with a built-in microphone to bounce along with ambient music, and even Wi-Fi app and Alexa control. I have a similar set from the same company behind my TV, and it works great. Just use promo code R8NNTV6U at checkout to get the deal.

15 Pound 60"x 80" Weighted Blanket | $48 | Amazon | Promo code XM3PDDH2
20 Pound 58"x 78" Weighted Blanket | $49 | Amazon | Promo code K65ACBZ6

25 Pound 60"x 80" Weighted Blanket (Dark Gray) | $70 | Amazon | Promo code TB3MR33M

It’s not cold outside anymore, but anxiety is always in season. In addition to keeping you warm, a weighted blanket can work wonders for your anxiety, and several different models are on sale for Father’s Day, if you still haven’t picked out a gift.

The deals skew towards heavier blankets for your large, manly dad who can take such weights. Options include a beefy 25 pounder for just $70 (with code TB3MR33M), a 20 pounder for just $49 (with code K65ACBZ6). Just be sure to note the promo codes above or below to get the deals.

Personally, I want my weighted blankets to be capable of breaking ribs (I own a 25 pounder myself), but the general recommendation is 10% of your body weight. Not to stress you out, but we wouldn’t expect this deal to last for long.

Chef’sChoice 130 Professional Knife Sharpener | $80 | Woot

Chef’sChoice 130 Professional Knife Sharpener | $80 | Woot

Somewhat counterintuitively, dull kitchen knives are more dangerous than sharp ones, as they require more pressure to use, and are more likely to slip off of whatever you’re cutting, and 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 $80 on Woot, down from its usual $110-$160. Boasting a fantastic 4.4 star review average, the Chef’s Choice 130 is designed with standard American 20 degree kitchen knives in mind, and works on both straight and serrated blades. This deal is only available today though, so be sure to grab it while the price is slashed.

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.

Everlane Biggest Choose What You Pay Summer Event is on, and sections for both men and women have been flooded 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.

The Switch Pro controller isn’t just one of the best ways to control your Nintendo Switch, it might be one of the best gamepads ever made, period. If you have a Switch and still haven’t picked one up, $50 is about $15 less than usual.

If you’re thinking “but I have a pair of Joy-Con and the grip thing; what do I need this for,” know that I felt the same way for a long time. But when I finally caved and bought a Pro controller for a Super Smash get-together a few months ago, there was no turning back. It’s so much more comfortable to hold, and the buttons are so much bigger and nicer to press. I’m angry that I waited so long.
