Today’s Best Tech Deals

ASUS ROG Swift PG348Q 34" Gaming Monitor | $791 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Asus’s ROG line of gaming monitors are the favorite among pro gamers and with good reason: they’re awesome. This ASUS ROG Swift PG348Q 34" monitor is packed with all the stuff you’d want from a gaming monitor.

The PG348Q offers a curved panel (which is awesome for immersive gaming), uses G-Sync (which eliminates tearing), and a 3440x1440 resolution. There is one minor flaw: the 100Hz refresh rate. While 144hz is the gold standard for competitive gaming, it’s actually a rarity in ones this size.

This current price is the lowest we’ve ever seen, and it’s unlikely to last. And yes, its nigh-$800 price may seem hard to swallow, but it’s ostensibly two monitors in one. So, rocket jump over and buy this thing before... well, it’s game over man.


Blue Snowball Microphone | $30 | Amazon

Whether you’re looking to start a podcast, or just want your Skype calls to sound better, the Blue Snowball is one of the most popular affordable USB microphones you can buy, and Amazon’s offering the murdered out black version for for $30 today, or about $10-20 less than usual.


Huanuo Laptop Bed Tray Table | $28 | Amazon | Promo code JRQHOYLB

Whether from illness, exhaustion, or questionable decisions made the previous night, sometimes, you just can’t get out of bed. It’s okay, we’ve all been there! But you can at least pretend to be a functioning member of society while you’re laid up under the covers with this adjustable bed table. It can hold your laptop if you’re working from home, or your scrambled eggs and OJ if you’re taking it easy.

Just use promo code COAVAS136 at checkout to get it for $28, and note that its $31 list price is actually lower than its usual $33-$43.


Mpow H5 Noise Canceling Bluetooth Headphones | $34 | Amazon | Clip the $3 coupon and use promo code MPOW143D

While I’m sure the sound quality and noise cancellation abilities of these Mpow over-ear Bluetooth headphones don’t live up to the likes of Sony’s WH1000XM3s line or Bose’s QC35s, they annihilate the competition on price at just $34, the best price we’ve ever seen.

If you’re on a budget, and want to drown out airplane noise or your annoying coworkers, they could be worth trying out. Just be sure to clip the $3 coupon on the page and use promo code MPOW143D at checkout to get the deal.


Anker 7-in-1 USB-C Hub | $39 | Amazon | Promo code KINJA8346
Graphic: Shep McAllister

There may yet come a day when everything you need to plug into your computer plugs directly into a USB-C port. But until that day comes, you’re going to want a USB-C hub to turn the versatile port into all of the legacy ports you could possibly need.

Advertisement

This new 7-in-1 adapter from Anker is unique in that, in addition to a 100W USB-C passthrough power port (which is fairly common), it features an additional USB-C data port as well, which you could presumably plug another hub into, or a USB-C to Lightning cable, or a USB-C hard drive. I don’t believe I’ve seen this feature on any other hub of this size.

Of course, you also get a few USB 3.0 ports, 4K HDMI, and an SD card reader, so most of your port needs should be covered. Just clip the $10 coupon, and use promo code KINJA8346 to save an extra dollar at checkout.


Anker’s PowerPort Mini wall charger is its smallest one yet, and you can grab it for just $9 today on Amazon, down from the usual $11.

Advertisement

The PowerPort Mini isn’t much bigger than the power brick that came with your iPhone, but it includes folding plugs, two ports, and 12W of power rather than just 5W. Literally everything about it is better.

That power is split between the two ports, so while it can charge an iPad at full speed if it’s the only thing plugged in, it’ll drop down to half speed if you plugged in a second device. But even so, that’s perfectly fine for overnight charging, and this thing is small enough to fit in any bag.

And don’t forget, Anker’s similarly sized 30W USB-C charger is still on sale for $25 as well, its first discount from the usual $30.


Anker Wireless Charger, 10W Qi-Certified Wireless Charging Pad | $11 | Amazon | Use the code KJANKER1149
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

If you’re in the market for a no-frills wireless charger, Anker’s 10W Qi-Certified Wireless Charging Pad will cost you just $11 if you use the code KJANKER1149.

Advertisement

This 10W pad can fast-charge compatible Android phones and is compatible with iPhones, too, albeit charging those iOS models a tad slowly.

In addition to the charging pad, you’ll get a 3 ft. micro USB cable but, sadly, no AC adapter (presumably to keep costs low.) But if you’re like me and have a literal dozen of these adapters at home, this won’t an issue. (You can also plug it in to your computer, if you don’t have a spare adapter.)

Today’s Best Home Deals

20% off Dyson Orders | eBay | Promo code JUMP2DYSON. $100 maximum discount.

Dyson’s eBay outlet is always a great place to save on Dyson gear, but for a limited time, you can save an extra 20% on the already-discounted prices with promo code JUMP2DYSON, including vacuums, fans, and even hair dryers. They sell a lot of new stuff on eBay, but the best deals are on the refurbs. Either way, they’re sold directly by Dyson; this isn’t a sketchy third party situation.

My favorite pick here would be the cordless Dyson V7 Animal (refurbished) for $160. If you want a corded upright, the Dyson Cinetic doesn’t require a filter, and is a great option at $376 brand new. Just don’t forget the code!

The Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer would be an amazing Mother’s Day gift for anyone who...dries their hair, and $224 with code JUMP2DYSON for a certified refurb is an absolute steal.


Traveling can be stressful for humans, but it can be even worse for animals. They can’t actually understand what you’re saying when you put them inside of a carrier. No matter how soothing you attempt to make your voice, pets have a generally bad feeling about carriers. If you’ve been looking for a carrier that is comfortable for your pet and affordable for your budget, this airline-approved carrier is $10 for a small or $15 for a large on Amazon.

The Paws & Pals Airline-Approved Pet Carrier is designed for the comfort of both cats and dogs. It has a fleece bed for them to take a little snooze, once they’ve calmed down a bit. If your dog or cat likes to check out their surroundings, the mesh opening gives them a great view. The small carrier (17" x 8"x 11.5") is perfect for those who wish to bring pets seven pounds and under aboard the plane. The carrier tucks nicely under most airline seats. The large carrier (19" x 10" x 13") is also on sale for $15 and fits pets up to 15 pounds. The large carrier is slightly bigger than some approved in-cabin carriers. Since this is a soft-sided carrier, you can check with the airline prior to and see if it is allowed since these carriers can conform to space underneath the seat.

“Get outta town!” That’s what you’ll say, and what you’ll do, when you see the fares on a whole bunch of Southwest Airlines flights.

Bamboo Mattress Pad with Fitted Skirt | $57-$74 | Amazon | Promo code 9RABNL3G

You don’t necessarily need to buy a new mattress to get a better night’s sleep. Sometimes, a mattress pad will do, and this popular option is on sale in Amazon’s Gold Box, with an extra 10% off with promo code 9RABNL3G. I have this exact bamboo pad on my own Casper mattress, and it really does make an already-comfortable mattress feel even nicer.

Unlike most mattress pads, these ExceptionalSheets bamboo mattress pads are stuffed with Revoloft synthetic fill, which should feel a lot like down, but without the associated allergies and poking feathers. They also feature a hypoallergenic bamboo cover, and should sleep very cool come summer. Prices range from just $57-$74 today after you stack the Gold Box savings with the 10% code, depending on the size. We aren’t sure how long the coupon will be around though, so you probably shouldn’t sleep on it.


Hitachi Gas-Powered Leaf Blower | $97| Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Before you know it, you’re lawn will be littered with leaves. But you can make quick work of them with this $97 gas-powered leaf blower from Hitachi. It looks like a beast, and creates 170 mph wind, but it only weighs 8.6 pounds, which is more than manageable for a blower this powerful. $97 is a few bucks off the best price ever, but that was back in the September.

Deals You May Have Missed

Anker PowerLIne II USB-C to Lightning Cable | $14 | Amazon | Promo code ANKERCTL

Praise the charging gods, you can actually buy certified third party USB-C to Lightning cables now, which allow you to use USB-C PD chargers to fast-charge modern iPhones from 0% to 50% in under 30 minutes.

Anker was (naturally) one of the first out of the gate with the new cables, and now, they’re on sale for the first time ever. Use promo code ANKERCTL to get a 3' PowerLine II cable for just $14. That’s $5 less than Apple charges for the equivalent cable, and Anker’s are more durable, and include a lifetime warranty if it does ever wear out.


LG SK9Y Atmos Sound Bar | $500 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

LG’s SK9Y sound bar was one of our readers’ favorites, and it’s easy to see why. With just one bar and a wireless subwoofer, you can enjoy get 5.1.2 channel Dolby Atmos audio, thanks to three front-firing speakers, two on the side (to bounce off the walls), and two on top (to bounce off the ceiling for the Atmos effect).

Dolby Atmos content has gotten a lot more common over the past year, and there’s every indication that it’s the future of home theater audio. The Apple TV supports it, as does the new (currently $35) Fire TV Stick, so it’s easier than ever to envelop yourself in sound.

Today’s $500 deal from Amazon is about $100-$400 less than usual, and one of the best deals we’ve ever seen.


Anker SoundCore Liberty Air True-Wireless Earphones | $65 | Amazon | Promo code KINJAA3902
Photo: Amazon

A few months ago, Anker came out with its own version of AirPods, and they were pretty damn impressive in a side-by-side comparison. We haven’t really seen any deals on them since, but today, our readers can snag a set for just $65 with promo code KINJAA3902.

From our Inventory review:

If Apple’s AirPods have a fatal flaw, it’s that they don’t seal off your ear canal to block out noise. That’s fine if you’re going for a run and want to be aware when cars are coming by, but if you’re trying to focus in a noisy office, or listen to music on a plane, AirPods aren’t the right tool for the job. And if they just don’t fit in your ears? Too bad, Apple only makes one size, try growing better ears next time.

The Liberty Airs, like most sensible Bluetooth earbuds, include four sets of interchangeable rubber ear tips in the box. Once you find the one that fits you best, the ‘buds will stay solidly anchored in your ears while blocking out nearby sounds. Seriously, I shook my head around like I was at a Black Sabbath concert, and I couldn’t get them to fall out. People keep clamoring for Apple to make noise-canceling AirPods, but honestly, low-tech noise isolation is way simpler, and probably works better too.

Obviously, they don’t pair as effortlessly as AirPods, and the case is a bit bigger than Apple’s, but for $65, they’re a tremendous value if you’re ready to truly cut the cord. They sound pretty good, they have Bluetooth 5.0 for a stable connection, and they have great battery life for the price. What more could you want?
