All of the deals are below, but just be sure to note the promo codes, and be sure to clip any on-page coupons you see as well (if applicable) to get the full discount.

Samsung Q80 65" 4K QLED TV | $1,799 | Drop | Upgrade to 75" at checkout for $1,000 extra
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

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.

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
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

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

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.


AmazonBasics Tech Sale | Amazon | Prime members only
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Amazon has a surprisingly deep bench of tech products under its AmazonBasics umbrella, and a ton of them are on sale right now.

The deal includes a huge assortment of gear, ranging from charging cables to wireless headphones to rechargeable batteries to gaming headsets, with tons of fun and random stuff in between. A few favorites are below, but be sure to head over to Amazon to find all of the deals.

Just not that the deals are only available for Prime members.

We aren’t sure how long this deal will last, so go fill up your cart while you can.

Today’s Best Home Deals

Instant Pot IP-DUO60 | $50 | Amazon | Clip coupon code on page

If you don’t own a pressure cooker, today’s a great day to fix that, as Amazon’s knocked the highly-rated Instant Pot IP-DUO60 down to $50, the lowest price we’ve ever seen.

Instant Pots do more than just cook foods quickly, though they certainly do that. In fact, it’s is also our readers’ favorite slow cooker, and an amazing rice cooker too. To put a fine point on it: It’s one of the most versatile kitchen gadgets you can own, and worthy of all the hype.

Just make sure to clip the coupon code on the page.


SodaStream Fizzi Sparkling Water Maker | $60 | Amazon

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.


Everyone needs pens, and let me tell you, Amazon’s got pens. Today only, Amazon’s discounting a ton of different styles of pens, markers and highlighters from BIC, as part of a Gold Box deal. Have a favorite type? Let us know in the comments.


Travelpro Luggage Gold Box | Amazon

Travelpro remains a favorite luggage brand among flight crews and our readers, and today only Amazon’s discounting two spinner sets. Choose from a softside and hardside, each costing just $130. Each set includes a 20" carry-on unit, but the hardside offers an additional 24" check-in model while the softside has a 25" one.


Anker Roav Viva | $28 | Amazon | Clip the $10 coupon and use code ROAVF44C

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.


Up to 35% Off Select Air and Water Filers | Home Depot
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

Do you remember the last time you changed your air filter? If a specific date isn’t coming to mind, you are probably long overdue. It is suggested to change the filter every 60 days if you have pets in your home. You can stock up on some allergen-friendly air filters from Arm & Hammer during Home Depot’s one-day air and water filter sale.

Today only, Amazon’s discounting IZOD shirts, chino shorts and pants, and polos to help you freshen up your wardrobe for the summer. Prices start at just $9, for big boys, itty bitty boys, Mississippi boys, and inner city boys. (Unfortunately, no bow ties are included in this sale.)

Just note that this is a Gold Box, so these prices will only stick around for a day. So if your work gear has more than a few holes or slightly-noticeable pizza stains, don’t wait. Make a girl go crazy, ow.


BioLite FirePit | $170 | Huckberry | $220 with solar cover

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.

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.


It’s very hot outside, so please, for the love of God, don’t put yourself through the torture of wearing long sleeves—especially when you have the chance to stock up on stylish short sleeve button downs from Jachs for less than usual. Right now, pick up any two of the 40+ styles included in the promo for just $39. Just use code SSBLOWOUT to ensure you snag the savings on shirts adorned with strips, florals, prints, plaid, and more.

Not to stress you out, but we aren’t sure how long this deal will last, so don’t delay.


SweatBlock | $13 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Sweat Block is antiperspirant, but in lotion form, so you can use it on your hands and feet, instead of your armpits. Our own Jolie Kerr suggests using it on your feet, but feel free to let your mind wander about the possibilities. Get a tube for $13 on Amazon today, down from the usual $15.

If you’re looking for an entry point into the ever-widening world of K-beauty, look no further than these discounts on Neogen Dermalogy, a cult-favorite brand that’s created a slew of natural, yet effective products you definitely should try.

Included among the deals are Neogen’s Real Fresh Foam Cleanser, a must-try for combination and acne prone skin that gets ride of impurities without being too drying, in hydrating Blueberry and glow-promoting Cranberry. Also, on sale: The Neogen Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Lemon, a pack of pre-soaked, exfoliating pads that aren’t too harsh. But really, you and your skin can’t go wrong with any of these Neogen buys. Shop now, before these rarely lowered prices go back up.


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.

Advertisement

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.


Stranger Things T-Shirts, Men’s and Women’s | $13 | Daily Steals | Promo code KJSTSHIRT
Stranger Things Hoodies, Men’s and Women’s | $22 | Daily Steals | Promo code KJSTSHIRT

Rep your favorite Hawkins resident with these t-shirts and hoodies from Daily Steals. You can get Stranger Things Men’s and Women’s t-shirts for $13 using the promo code KJSTSHIRT.

Klairs Deals | Amazon

The world of K-beauty can be confusing for the uninitiated, but this sale on products from cult-favorite brand Klairs is a safe bet if you’re looking to commence your own K-beauty kick. Right now, a bunch of stuff from the brand is on sale on Amazon.

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.


Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser | $21 | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

It’s not like there was anything wrong with the old routine of washing your face, but wouldn’t it be so much better with a cleanser that warms up as you use it? This Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser does exactly that, and today, it’s on sale for $21 on Amazon. 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. This hot deal won’t last long, though, so get yours before this stock gets cleaned out.

If you’re seeing Spider-Man: Far From Home this weekend, you’ll certainly want to rewatch a few MCU movies before heading to the theater.
