Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you don’t think you need to upgrade to 8K just yet, Samsung’s Q80 2019 TV line is the company’s second best QLED 4K TV, and you can get yours for the best price ever.

Featuring full-array backlighting, quantum dot-powered color, HDR support, and a stunningly slim design, it will ensure that your Bachelorette viewing parties (or whatever) always happen at your house.

For a limited time, get the 65" from Drop for $1,799 (down from $2,297 on Amazon), or upgrade to the 75" at checkout for $2,799 (down from $3,798).

Logitech Harmony Smart Control with Harmony Hub | $50 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister
Advertisement

Update: Back in stock, if you missed it last week!

$50 for a Logitech Harmony remote is a great deal on its face, but the real reason to buy this model is the included Harmony Home Hub.

Advertisement

The Hub allows you to use your iPhone, Android device, or even an Amazon Echo to control everything a Harmony remote can (which is basically any piece of home theater gear you can think of). So even when you inevitably lose the included remote behind the couch cushions, you’ll still have multiple ways to take control of all of your home theater gear.

Considering the hub alone sells for $70 right now, getting the hub plus a remote for $50 is a pretty terrific deal, even if it was as cheap as $45 back around the holidays.

Refurb Sony WH1000XM3 Noise Canceling Headphones | $200 | eBay

Sony’s top-end Sony WH1000XM3s, which put Bose to shame, is down to just $200 today.

Advertisement

This current price is $150 less than buying them new, and $20-30 less than the usual going rate for refurbs. It’s still a big investment, to be sure, but if you spend a lot of time in noisy planes and trains, or if you work in an open office and just need to be able to find a quiet space, you won’t find a better set of headphones.

Some people can’t live without their coffee, but for me, it’s fizzy water and diet cola. I’ve saved hundreds of dollars over the years on the stuff by making it myself with a SodaStream, and you can too.

Today on Amazon, you can get a SodaStream Fizzi for $60, complete with a full-sized CO2 caninster, and a carbonating bottle. That’s the best price Amazon’s offered since 2017, and if you regularly buy soda or carbonated water at the store, it’ll pay for itself.

Love Alexa, and wish you could take her with you on your commute? Anker’s running the best deal ever on their hands-free, Alexa-enabled car charger today after you clip the $10 coupon and add promo code ROAVF44C.

You can check out my full impressions here, bu the Roav VIVA from Anker does an admirable job of providing hands-free Alexa access while you’re driving, including turn-by-turn directions, your daily briefing, and even third party Alexa apps like Jeopardy. As befitting an Anker product, it’s also a dual port car charger, albeit an awkwardly designed one.

If BioLite knows one thing well, it’s fire. While the company is best known for its wood-burning, phone-charging CampStove, its larger FirePit was a Kickstarter sensation a couple of years ago, and Huckberry’s got it for a rare 15% off today.

Advertisement

Utilizing electric convection fans that both stoke the flames and reduce smoke, the FirePit will be the most pleasant camp fire you’ve ever sat around, and won’t make your clothes smell like a Vegas casino. Its mesh sidewalls even let you see the embers burning at the bottom of the pit, which you’d never get to gaze at in a normal fire pit (and they are ENCHANTING). But perhaps best of all, an included grill grate lets you turn it into an on-the-go hibachi grill. Just add meat.

Normally $200, the FirePit is on sale for $170, or $220 with an included travel cover which has an integrated solar panel that charges the FirePit’s batteries.

Anker LC40 Rechargeable Flashlight | $16 | Amazon | Use code ANKERLC40

The flashlight on your phone is fine for stumbling to the bathroom in the middle of the night, but for any situation where you want to see more than a few feet in front of you, it’s worth investing in a dedicated torch.

Anker’s upgraded LC40 now features a rechargeable battery (can you believe Anker ever sold one that didn’t?) that can run for up to 50 hours on low power mode, or for six with the light’s brightness maxed out at 400 lumens Of course, it recharges over USB (even from a USB battery pack, natch), and its IP65 rating means it can stand up to the elements. It normally costs $20, but they’re putting it in the spotlight this week with a discount to $16.

The even more powerful LC90 is also on sale for $27 with code ANKERLITE, which could be considered an even better deal, since it’s more than twice as bright.

Klairs is an especially useful brand for those with sensitive skin. Its Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask is a bestseller, but I especially love the Midnight Blue Calming Cream and Rich Moist Soothing Serum. But really, you can’t go wrong with anything from Klairs.

The warmth created on contact helps open up your pores, so activated charcoal can suck impurities out, while vitamin C helps refine your skin’s texture.
