Sure, there are a few new iPhones you can pre-order now, but your old phone’s probably doing just fine, sans the wearing battery that leaves you hunting for the charger last-minute. Rather than dropping a bunch of cash on a new phone, a portable charger can give you enough juice to get through a day out in nature or running errands without cleaning out your wallet. Right now, Aukey’s 20,000mAh portable charger is down to $28, saving you $32, by clipping the on-site coupon. Grab your phone and charge it up, wherever you go, today.

Maybe you need a new TV. But you probably don’t need a big TV that can double as a picture frame when you’re not getting your binge on. Still, if there’s no talking you out of it, this 55" 4k TV from Samsung comes wrapped in a frame that might look just fine on your wall. Framed TVs seem a bit goofy, but hey, do your thing. The 65" version is also discounted 25%.


Apple AirPods with Wired Charging Case | $115 | Amazon

There’s a good chance you know someone who has a pair of AirPods, and you have been wanting to be a part of the group. Thanks to Prime Day, there’s a good chance you can be.

At $115, Apple’s AirPods with Wired Charging Case are the lowest they’ve ever been. Especially if 2020 is the year you are upgrading to the newest iPhone 12 line, these will perfectly compliment the device, with its touch controls and sensors that pause tracks when you take an AirPod out.


Kindle Paperwhite | $85 | Amazon

Tired of scrolling through the news every night? Maybe a Kindle may help you unwind after a long day without having to slog through Tweets and articles that might just bum you out. Consider the Amazon’s Kindle Paperwhite, which is waterproof and has a lit display for night-time reading. Typically, it costs $130, but right now it’s down to $85, so grab it while you can.


AUKEY 65W 2-Port USB-C PD Omnia Charger | $26 | Amazon

Whether you just need a quick top up on your earbuds or you’re getting the MacBook ready for a long day, AUKEY’s 2-port Omina charger is the ticket. It has two USB-C ports with Power Delivery, offering 65W of juice between the two for $26, a special Prime Day price.


Mpow M30 IPX8 Bluetooth 5.0 Earbuds | $20 | Clip Coupon & Use Code S79Z7QLT
Mpow M30 IPX8 Bluetooth 5.0 Earbuds | $20 | Clip Coupon & Use Code S79Z7QLT
Image: Sheilah Villari

I’ve tested Mpow products in the past and was always pleasantly surprised at the value to price ratio. They’re quality without breaking the bank. A Prime Day treat from the company is their M30 IPX8 Bluetooth 5.0 Earbuds. They’re just $20 when you clip the coupon and use the code S79Z7QLT.

$20 is a great price for an extra set of earbuds. If you’re running errands or just running and you don’t want to take your most expensive buds on the go these are for you. Quick to pair and easy to bounce between tunes and calls. The M30's are noise-canceling so ideal for travel and just because they are small and fit snuggly doesn’t mean there’s no power in them. Little buds, big bass. They’re sweat-proof so sport it up and fear not about ruining them. You’ll get about 5 hours off of one charge but 25 hours with the charging case. The only blip is if you’re an Android user you have to adjust the volume on your phone to “maximum” first to get the highest volume out of these. Other than that it’s a solid audio device at a solid price.


Firsting 1080p Webcam | $27 | Amazon | Clip $3 coupon

If you still need a webcam and you don’t want to shell out close to $100 for the best, this $27 unit by Firsting has 1080p plug-and-play functionality, complete with a stereo noise-canceling microphone that can hear you from up to 10 meters away. Just clip the $3 coupon at Amazon.


LG 27UK850 27" 4K Monitor | $380 | Amazon

Gaming in 4K is not a unrealistic possibility anymore. Recent graphics card releases have made this possible at a playable framerate, and it requires a great monitor to make sure the colours and the frames are shown in the best way.

This is where the LG 27UK850 27" 4K Monitor comes in. Featuring USB-C output so you can connect to a device with the same standard, it also has HDR-10, so photos and videos can be displayed in all its full-color glory.


SanDisk Extreme Pro 1TB SD Card | $280| Amazon

As the years pass, storage becomes bigger while the cost becomes cheaper. Fifteen years ago it was a lot of money to buy a 512mb Memory Pro Duo card for a Sony PSP.

Now, a 1TB SD Card from SanDisk is available for $280, enabling you to capture 4K video and all the photos you need for certain jobs, or just for family occasions.


There are few feelings worse than having your phone die on you as you’re walking (or driving) the streets alone in the midst of a pandemic—not that I would know anything about that! A threat best avoided with the purchase of a portable charger to keep around, these Aukey-branded banks and car plugs are up to 27% off for Prime Day right now.

You can grab a 10,000mAh 18-watt Power Delivery fast charger for just $16 using our exclusive code KINJAN83P. Need a backup for your vehicles cigarette lighter, or whatever you’re supposed to call those things now? This 30W dual-port option is compact enough to carry in your pocket, always there when you need it most, and is marked down to $11 with the code KINJACCA3. Last but not least, a 20,000mAh USB-C charger is future-proof and powerful. It costs $15, no code required, making it an easy impulse buy that’s thin, light, and replete with enough connections that’ll last years to come.

Audiophiles rejoice, JBL True Wireless Headphones are $40, which is 60% off the list price. You’ll get bumping bass and four hours of audio playback, increasing to 12 once you charge the case they live in. What else is there to say? Hop on it before it’s gone.


DJI Mavic Mini Combo | $399 | Amazon

The mini-drone by DJI is able to take to the skies for 30 minutes, capturing HD videos and 12MP of aerial photos. It’s a perfect peripheral to use at a park or your own garden in taking some fantastic footage.

It weighs at 250 grams, which means it’s under the weight requirement to register the device with the government, so you can use it right away.

The DJI Fly App is the recommended way to control the drone through your smartphone, so you can accurately control it for as long as the battery lasts.


JBL Boombox | $280 | Amazon

There’s speakers and then there are speakers, and the JBL Boombox falls in the latter. A large boombox that’s also waterproof, it can be a great peripheral to have in the garden while streaming your curated playlist of nineties classics.

It has a huge 20,000mAh battery that can make it last throughout the week, and it can also charge any connected devices if one is running low.


DJI Osmo Mobile 3 | $98 | Amazon

Sometimes it can be difficult to capture the moment with the correct framing, or even when capturing video, you could lose the subject as they are out of the frame.

But with the DJI Osmo Mobile 3, it’s a compact holder that can reduce any shaky video, and stabilise any photos taken. Even in these 2020 times, recording video for a Vlog can be created with much more ease and control with the Osmo.


Samsung Galaxy S10 | $575 | Amazon

Samsung phones have been ahead of the curve in regards to notch-less design, and the Galaxy S10 exemplifies this with only a cut-out for its dual-camera design at the front.

It is factory unlocked, so you can pop in a SIM to a network of your choice. Featuring a triple-camera system at the back and a 3,400 mAh battery, this is a great price for a phone you will be using for some time.


Western Digital Elements 12TB External Hard Drive | $175 | Amazon Prime Exclusive

I personally can’t think of anything I could download or store en masse that would need 12TB of space (memes and GIFs, maybe), but the world doesn’t revolve around me. If you need a shit ton of space, this Western Digital Elements hard drive is the Prime-exclusive deal to jump on. It’s down to $175, a 30% discount.

This is an external, so you can move it back and forth between different systems, and with its USB 3.0 speeds, your transfer rates will be the fastest those mechanical gears inside can manage.


Polk Audio CS1 Series Center Channel Speaker | $74 | Amazon

Good audio can absolutely enhance your viewing or listening experience and bad audio can also destroy it. Take 25% off Polk Audio’s CS1 Series Center Channel Speaker and turn your next movie marathon into a pitch-perfect journey. This is a Prime Day deal that runs today only.

This speaker is actually designed to “channel” sound more accurately and directly. The Dynamic Balance Woofers produce crisp tones with low distortion but you’ll also get decent bass pumping through it as well. It’s also built to be flipped if you need to optimize space and the sound isn’t affected in any way. You can actually turn this speaker upside down, aims it up, and let the tunes flow right to you. The CS1 works great for large or small rooms with simple tweaks in surround sound setup. Easy to install with great savings today. This is the missing piece to perfecting your entertainment system.

Get free shipping if your a Prime member and remember the price will change once you add it to your cart.


Garmin Forerunner Watch | $220 | Amazon

If you need a watch that only focuses on a few things, then the Garmin Forerunner will be a great choice. The battery can last for up to seven days in smartwatch mode, and 7 hours in GPS mode.

It can finely track your fitness, from running and jogging to swimming and heart rate trends throughout the days. It’s marked down $230 from the list price for Prime members during Prime Day.


Samsung Galaxy Note 20 5G (128GB Unlocked) | $750 | Amazon Prime Exclusive
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 5G (128GB Unlocked) | $750 | Amazon Prime Exclusive

Samsung’s flagship Galaxy smartphones are pretty expensive now, and that’s because they come with a ton of cutting edge tech and high-end features meant mostly for the pro-iest of pros. But today, you can save $250 on the 128GB Samsung Galaxy Note 20 5G, unlocked for use on almost any GSM or CDMA carrier in the United States, including Verizon. This is a Prime Day exclusive deal.

Waiting for you is a nice fat 6.7" display, a 64MP rear camera system featuring hree sensors, 10MP up front, and a Snapdragon 865+ octa-core chipset with 8GB of RAM for power. Also adding to your productivity is the all-important S Pen, giving you a Wacom-like experience for drawing, taking notes, and superior multitasking gestures. Find it in Mystic Green, Mystic Bronze, or Mystic Gray.

Sony’s new headphones are leading the way in their noise-cancellation technology, alongside the gestures that come with these new models. They will pause the track once it detects you’re speaking, and will also switch off the noise-cancellation when a hand is put on the right-cup.

They feature fantastic sound, and are able to be paired for up to two devices, so you can switch between your phone and your tablet with ease.

As this also comes with a $25 gift card, you can be free to spend that on something else on Prime Day.


ELEPHAS 2020 WiFi Movie Projector | $85 | Amazon

Movie nights with loved ones are a great way to pass the time. If you’re keeping your circle small or still sticking to those you co-habitat with I’m sure Netflix and Hulu have been given a run for their money. I’ve been looking into a projector because I’m lucky enough to have a backyard and have a roommate who thought setting up a project for our weekend hangs with the same five people we see might be cool. The ELEPHAS 2020 WiFi Movie Projector is just $93 right now.

It’s compatible with Android/iPhone/Windows 10 and you only need WiFi on setup. You can also easily connect your iPhone with the original cable line too. It’s got full HD 1080P input and 24-bit true-color support. The built-in speaker has a pretty robust sound that gets decently loud. They do recommend six to ten feet distance for the projector so keep that in mind for placement. Another cool feature is that it’s compatible with the Roku Stick, Fire Stick, and Chromecast blowing the doors on your viewing options wide open.

Free shipping on this item for Prime members.

If you need a PC with huge amounts of storage, the Seagate Barracuda Pro is the hard drive of choice. Featuring a whopping 12TB, or 10.9TB when formatted, it can store a massive catalog of games from different publishers, alongside many large media files such as 4K UHD movies. This is 27% off the normal price, which results in plenty of value for the number of gigabytes in place.


I’ve tested this portable speaker and even gifted it to a pal for her new apartment and I can say Urbanears makes great products. For Prime Day the company is giving you 40% off two of their fan favorites. The Ralis Portable Bluetooth Speaker is now $80 less and the Plattan 2 Bluetooth Headphones now are $40 less.

The Ralis Speaker is compact but gives a lot of sound no matter where you place it. It’s durable and water-resistant and has made many appearances at beach days. You’ll get up to 20 hours of playtime off of one charge and it connects easily to your phone. You’ll be able to control the speakers through the user-friendly Urbanears app. It also has a powerbank so charging devices while out is absolutely possible. All four colors are on sale.

These comfy and vibrant headphones are blessed with exactly the same quality as the Ralis. The Plattan 2s will get you about 30 hours of listening enjoyment from one charge, the Bluetooth connects smoothly, and you can control everything directly from the side knob. The sound is full-spectrum, crisp, and clear. All eight colors are on sale.

Free shipping for Prime members.

If you’re looking for a sale on some Beats, boy do I have the deal for you. The Powerbeats Pro headphones are down to $175, 30% off the original list price and the lowest price we’ve ever seen them. That’s what Prime Day does for you!

Featuring 32GB of internal space with an 8 inch screen, the Galaxy Tab is a great choice for reading books and watching movies. It has an expansion slot for a microSD card up to 512GB, so even more content can be added to the device.

MOFT Laptop & Phone Stands | $15 | Amazon
MOFT Laptop & Phone Stands | $15 | Amazon
Image: Sheilah Villari

I love my MOFT stand and use it every day. I was pleasantly surprised that it really did hold the weight of my thirteen-inch Dell Inspiron. If you are still working at home with a laptop and not a stand, this is a literal wrist saver. For Prime Day take 25% off a selection of their stands.

The stands pre-COVID were ideal for their portability, so I loved bringing it to the cafe I used to write in. The smaller size doesn’t take away from their strength. The way these are angled not only helps with your wrists but your posture too. Bye-bye neck pain. They are designed to improve heat dissipation so your lappy never gets too hot also. It’s easy to unfold and fit underneath. MOFT jokes about a one-second installation and that’s accurate. While the adhesive is strong it can be moved and it doesn’t leave marks. The MOFT X for your phone is all you looking for as it’s a wallet and a stand. But this is an older model so anything the size of an iPhone 11 or bigger it won’t work with.

Prime members enjoy free two-day shipping.

As a staunch leader in premium audio, Sennheiser’s products are out of reach for modest budgets, but you can score a pair of the company’s best true wireless earbuds for $30 cheaper as part of ongoing Prime Day blowouts. That would be the Momentum True Wireless 2, and they’re down to $270 post-discount.

Since you’re probably still working from home, a good dose of noise cancellation can go a long way in staying focused.

If you’re an iPhone user with some cash to blow, skip the pretenders and even the lesser AirPods to go for something better. The AirPods Pro stepped the game up with rubber tips, noise cancellation, and better overall audio quality.

Check out today’s exciting offer at Amazon, which has it knocked down to $199. That price is still available as of this writing!

If you don’t mind your Apple tablets in miniature form, today is an excellent opportunity to try out the latest iPad Mini. Amazon has the 64GB Wi-Fi model down to $336, a $63 discount and the lowest we’ve ever seen.

The 7.9-inch display means it isn’t too far removed from “phone” territory, but this is the perfect size for reading, casual gaming, and light browsing. It’s also now great for note taking and art thanks to the added Apple Pencil support, which is a separate $94 purchase if you so desire. Despite the smaller size, you’re still hitting Apple’s preferred 10-hour battery mark on a full charge. Ships immediately.


Roku Premiere | $27 | Amazon

Whether you’re still rocking with a dumb TV or your smart TV seems more like it faked its college degree, Rokus come to the rescue. They’re cheap and offer a no-nonsense smart apps platform, giving you access to all your favorite streaming apps with voice access. Take the Roku Premiere, which Amazon has on sale for $27 ($13 off) today.

This box offers 4K HDR streaming and Dolby Atmos passthrough in apps that support it, and comes with a simple remote that makes it easy to access everything in no more than a few taps.

Vava 12-in-1 USB-C Docking Station | $70 | Amazon | Clip coupon + code: KJVA1009 
Image: Andrew Hayward

Many laptops these days sacrifice extensive ports in the favor of being as thin and light as possible, which has its obvious benefits and drawbacks. That’s great for easy portability, but can sometimes be a drag when you need to plug in a device or if you want to make your laptop the center of a more robust home office setup.

There are all sorts of USB-C hubs available, but Vava’s 12-in-1 Docking Station is one of the most port-packed options we’ve seen at an affordable price. Simply plug it into a USB-C port and you’ll add two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, a USB-C PD port, SD and microSD card readers, an Ethernet port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, DC in port, and two HDMI ports. Those HDMI ports enable dual-monitor 4K/60fps action with compatible laptops, letting you turn your slim notebook into a beast of a home PC.

The Vava 12-in-1 Docking Station usually runs $100, but right now when you clip the Amazon coupon and input the exclusive promo code KJVA1009, you’ll drop it down to just $70. If you need a more robust hub like this, it’s a bargain.

Apple’s new Watch SE is a pretty nifty watch. At $279 for the 40mm edition and $300 for the 44mm edition, you can now get an Apple Watch with the latest guts and most of the features without paying the premium. Today, you can get the 40mm model for $279, and the 44mm model is down from $310 to $300. Those prices only count if you go for the Sport Band, though, so be wary of any customizations beyond that if you’re worried about racking up the costs.

Be warned: the story’s been polarizing, but it’s also one of the most anticipated games of the year, so if you’re already invested in the story, now’s a good time to grab the next chapter in the story.

If you’re looking for a gaming headset, this Razer Kraken Tournament Edition in green is $53 off for Prime members at Amazon right now, bringing it down to $47. Compatible with all major gaming consoles, PC, and mobile, the Kraken Tournament Edition includes a USB audio interface housing all your volume controls.

Poké Ball Plus | $20 | Amazon
Poké Ball Plus | $20 | Amazon

Normally $50, the Poké Ball Plus at $20 is almost mandatory for anyone playing Pokémon Go, and it’s the only way to get a Mew and Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee. You’ll get the most value out of it in the former circumstance. The Poké Ball Plus illuminates and vibrates at the sign of wild Pokémon and Poké Stops.

In the Switch games, you can use it as a motion controller for an authentic Pokémon-catching experience, and you can put any of your favorite Pokémon “inside” and hear them growl when you shake it. The price shows $50 on Amazon’s page, but you’ll see the discount once you hit checkout if you buy directly from Amazon.


Kelake Alien Pikachu Figure | $17 | Amazon

What hellfire fever dream brought the franchises of Alien and Pokémon together? If you’ve ever been curious about what adorable Pikachu would look like as the bane of Ripley’s existence search no further. Bring this nightmare into your home for just $17. This is a Prime Day deal for members only.

This Xenochu is grotesquely detailed and honestly, there is something beautiful in how meticulous the design is. Don’t get me wrong it’s still gruesome as all get out but I’ll give credit where it’s due. Both the orange and green options are $8 less although if you really want a good peek into its monstrous forehead go with the orange. I just hope you have a Jonesy to protect when these inevitably become sentient and try to murder you in your sleep.

This item ships for free.

So, you’ve been lucky enough to get your hands on a Nintendo Switch despite the extremely shoddy stock. Great! But now you’ll need some games. The Switch has a great library of excellent games, but many of them are first-party and Nintendo games rarely go on sale.

Not so right now, luckily. Amazon has a bunch of big bargains during Prime Day, and at least as of this writing, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the only deal that requires a Prime membership to snag the $40 price.

Otherwise, games such as Super Mario Odyssey, Super Mario Party, and others listed below are down to $40 for everyone at Amazon, while Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 is marked down further to $30.


Razer Blade 15 Gaming Laptop | $2,000 | Amazon Prime Day Exclusive

The Razer Blade laptops are prohibitively expensive, and rightfully so. If you’ve been eyeing one, now’s the time to pull the trigger. The Razer Blade 15 with a 10th-generation Intel Core i7 octa-core CPU and NVIDIA’s RTX 2070 Super Max-Q graphics card is $600 off. Your final total of $2,000 is still pretty steep with this Prime-exclusive discount.

The Full HD display is a little stifling, but you’ll at least be certain this laptop can handle pretty much anything in your Steam library. It also has a 300Hz refresh rate, which is absolutely insane. Other niceties include 16GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD, Thunderbolt 3 connections, all packed into a single block of machined aluminum.

When I saw the case appear on my dash I assumed it was some sort of vintage throwback box, which I was still absolutely interested in. As a former Blockbuster employee (# 161) I was absolutely intrigued to step back into the golden age of video rental. And grab 30% off while doing so.

This game is charades on over two hundred movies from all different genres and eras. I enjoy games like this because it shows me who of my friends I have to take under my cinematic wing and educate them on the wonders of celluloid. One reviewer said they needed to update the movies because their children didn’t know them and well, what do you say to that. The point of the game is to revisit the ‘90s are earlier. So in truth, maybe this is a Millenial and Gen X game night. I still stand by using this as a barometer on whether your friends are cool or not.
