Praise the deal gods (and the Kinja product team), you can now jump between categories in this post using these links below. You’ll see the navigation controls at the top of each section.
JBL makes some of the most popular Bluetooth speakers out there, including our readers’ favorite waterproof one, and the IPX7-rated Flip 4 is down to its lowest price ever today. $78-$80 (depending on the color) gets you 12 hours of battery life, the ability to connect and sync up to 100 other JBL speakers, and great sound quality.
What gift do you get for the gadget lover who already has everything? A bag to carry their gadgets, of course. The Zero Grid Electronics Travel Organizer is bursting with pockets, straps, and zippers to keep all of your tech gear organized and untangled while you’re on the road. Get it for an all-time low $19 today with code ZGCR9DY3.
If you aren’t familiar, IPS displays boast superior color accuracy and viewing angles compared to the TN panels you’ll find in most inexpensive 4K monitors. I own the 24” model of this exact monitor, and I absolutely love it, just make sure your computer is powerful enough to drive it.
The ultra-popular Nest Learning Thermostat 3.0 is down to $195 today at Rakuten with promo code NEST34, which is the best discount we’ve ever seen. Early Black Friday ads indicate that these will be going for $200 (as per usual) around the holidays, so there’s no reason to wait.
Sound bars have largely taken over the home theater audio industry, but if you prefer to set things up the old fashioned way, you’d be hard pressed to find a better deal on a 5.1 speaker set than this. Just $140 gets you all of the speakers you need from Monoprice, though you’ll need to find a receiver to control them.
Aukey’s newest battery pack isn’t much thicker than your smartphone, and yet it’s packing 20,000mAh of power, three USB output ports, a USB-C input/output port, and even a Lightning input port so you can recharge it with your Apple gear. Get it for $32 with promo code AUKEYPY4.
HDTV bias lights are nothing new to our readers, but with three length options, 15 color modes, a color-changing fade setting, and two different control inputs, Luminoodle is probably the most polished option out there.
For a limited time, you can choose from all three lengths (there’s a guide to help you pick on the product page) for 25% off with promo code M89UHFGT. If you aren’t familiar, these ease eyestrain when watching TV at night, improve your TV’s perceived contrast, and just look really cool. Needless to say, this would make for a creative holiday gift as well.
Anker’s reader-favorite PowerCore battery packs run the gamut from tiny tubes that fit into your pocket to massive blocks of energy that can power your devices for days at a time. Today’s deal focuses very clearly on the latter.
The PowerCore+ 26800 is one of the few battery packs on the market with USB-C Power Delivery up to 27W. That means it can charge a 12" MacBook at nearly full speed, a Nintendo Switch at full power while you’re playing Zelda on a plane, or an iPad Pro significantly faster than the charger it came with (if you have a USB-C to Lightning cable).
Power Delivery works both ways too, so you can actually recharge the entire battery pack in just 4.5 hours with the included 27W USB-C wall charger, compared to over 11 hours with a standard 2A USB charger. When you’re trying to juice up before a flight, every minute counts.
The PowerCore+ also includes two high speed standard USB ports that you can use simultaneously, which is good, because this thing has enough power to share. We had a hands on with the pack when it launched back in April, and you can see our impressions here.
This battery almost always sells for $110, and $87 is the best price we’ve ever seen.
Giant plugs that cover up half the outlets on your power strip should be outlawed, but until that day arrives, these short extension cords will have to do. $14 gets you a pack of 10, which should be enough for even the most advanced home theater setups.
VPNs are in the news these days, and with good reason. So if you’re curious to sign up and start protecting your browsing history and personal data (or, you know, getting around websites’ geoblocks), NordVPN charges less per month than a typical trip to Starbucks.
NordVPN has long been one of the most popular and reliable VPN providers out there, and if you sign up for a one-year membership, promo code VIP70 will drop your annual price from $69 to $48. If you’re sure you want to commit, use this link to get a special two year plan for $79 with code 2YSpecial2017, or this link to get three years for $99 with code 3ydeal. Lifehacker has recommended Nord in some previous guides, but if you have any firsthand experience with the service, sound off in the comments!
Anker makes basically all of our readers’ favorite charging gear, and a bunch of it is on sale today for 20% off or more, no promo codes required.
See all the deals in this post:
The Logitech Harmony Hub is one of the best Alexa-compatible accessories out there, and it basically comes with a free Echo Dot right now.
If you aren’t familiar, the Harmony Hub is a little puck that blasts out RF signals like a TV remote to control all of your devices (Logitech’s database has nearly 300,000; it’s pretty comprehensive). Normally, this would work with a Harmony remote to control devices that are hidden behind cabinet doors, but it’ll also work with just your voice if you own an Alexa device.
So, for example, you could say “Alexa, turn on the TV” to turn on your TV, change to the correct input, turn on your cable box, or whatever else you programmed it to do. The same holds true for your smartphone; just open the Harmony app, and you’ll have full control over your entire home theater.
The Harmony Hub costs about $90 on Amazon (though it’s sometimes bundled with a barebones remote for about $70), but right now, that same amount of money will get you the Hub and an Echo Dot to control it. Or, if you already have all the Echoes you need, just give the Dot away as a holiday gift, and keep the Hub for yourself.
You don’t need to sell a kidney to afford noise-cancelling Bluetooth headphones; these 4 star-rated Cowin E-7s are just $40 right now, or $30 off with promo code 9H9778YO.
They might not have the brand recognition of Sony or Bose, but these headphones pack in 30 hours of battery life, and yes, active noise cancellation that reviewers say works really well.
Every so often, we see deals on individual Waste King garbage disposal models, and our readers always buy a ton of them. Today though, you’ve got two different choices in Amazon’s Gold Box.
The main difference between the models is basically the speed and strength of the motor. You can get 1/2 HP for $56, or go all out with a 1 HP model for $87. Those are all among the best prices Amazon’s listed on these, so lock in your order before they’re all gobbled up.
Update: Coupon is gone.
Still using the $10 pots and pans you bought at Walmart freshman year of college? Do yourself a favor and upgrade to this complete tri-ply set from Calphalon for just $195 (after clipping the $85 coupon), an all-time low, and the first time we’ve seen it under $200.
If you aren’t familiar with tri-ply cookware, it basically sandwiches a layer of aluminum inside the outer stainless steel layers, resulting in pans that enjoy the fast and even-heating properties of aluminum, along with the non-reactivity, durability, and induction-compatibility of stainless steel. Seriously, if you’re still using $10 pans you bought when you moved into your first apartment, you’re going to be blown away.
This 3-pack of measuring cups normally sells for $20, but it’s just $16 today, which is a really good deal when you consider that one cup alone usually costs $8.
OXO makes measuring cups with the measurements conveniently angled so you can read how much you have by looking down into the cup, rather than squatting to get level with the counter. I have had these cups for years and they still look brand new, just make sure if you’re going to put them in the dishwasher, put them on the top rack.
Our readers have bought thousands of entry-level Roomba 650s, but today we’ve spotted an all-time low price on the upgraded 690, which adds a few much-needed features.
As far as vacuuming performance goes, this should be essentially identical to the 650; the difference all comes down to connectivity. Built-in Wi-Fi allows you to schedule and start the Roomba from anywhere via a smartphone app, or even control it with your voice via Amazon Alexa or Google Home.
I know “smart” features on a lot of products are basically just an excuse to charge more, but as a Roomba owner, I think these make a ton of sense. I can tell you from experience that programming a Roomba without an app is something I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy, and the ability to start it remotely means you can run the Roomba while you’re out of the house, and come back to clean floors.
Today’s $275 deal is an all-time low, and a match for what we were expecting to see on Black Friday, so there’s no reason to wait.
This is a beautiful salad spinner that I’d be okay with leaving out on the counter. Normally selling for $50, you can spin your salad dry in this OXO steel salad spinner for just $40, plus it has really great reviews.
An oscillating multi-tool is one of those things you might not use on a weekly basis, but it’s useful enough that everyone should have one in their tool kit.
This Porter-Cable kit comes with 31 accessories to get you started, including sandpaper pads, scrapers, and wood and metal-cutting blades, and its 3A motor can spin anywhere from 10,000 to 22,000 OPM, making it perfect for a variety of jobs. It frequently sells for over $100, and today’s $60 deal is the best Amazon’s ever listed. Just remember that it’s a Gold Box deal, so it’s only available today, or until sold out.
Ninja’s high-end single-serve coffee maker has all the bells and whistles you could want in a coffee machine, and you can pick one up for $78 on Amazon right now, the best price we’ve ever seen.
The headlining feature here is Ninja’s Auto-iQ system, which automatically adjusts the water level based on the brew size and type you select, but you’ll also get a permanent filter, milk frother and tumbler in the box.
Let your dog have a special treat with you this Thanksgiving or stock up to stuff your dog’s stocking (yeah, all pet parents do that, right?) while you save 40% off dog treat bundles. Many of these treats are grain-free if your dog is following a specific diet, and they have puppy treat options too.
Forget trying to find quarters under your car seat and paying way too much for 3 minutes of air, and get this $16 tire inflator with code UG4JAQAG. You can fill up your tires whenever and wherever you please for free. Keeping your tires properly inflated helps improve gas mileage so this guy will basically pay for itself. It would also be great for bike tires.
The ultimate gift for the person who has everything is 25% off for the first time ever today with promo code JXRW4K5Q.
Power Practical’s Sparkr is a 400 lumen flashlight, an LED camping lantern, and a badass plasma lighter all rolled into one. I suspect you’re most interested in the third item on that list, so let’s dive in:
Just press one button, and an electric arc forms on the backside of of the flashlight that can light small items on fire, even in the wind. This spark is created with the same battery that powers the light, so unlike a traditional lighter, there’s no butane required. That makes it handy for camping, backyard s’mores nights, or just lighting candles around the house. Plus, it’s just cool as hell, nobody denies this.
Add about 40 feet of LED string lights into your life for just $5 with code NGEOJPAK. They plug in via USB port so you can take advantage of those USB wall ports you’ve been buying (or buy some more for $14 with code ICWALL77). This is an extremely good deal for two sets and might make your home’s holiday decor look that much better.
Put a lid on almost anything with this 7 pack of silicone stretch lids. They expand over your bowls, pans, and containers to create an air-tight, leak-proof seal and are way easier than using sticky plastic wrap. They’re dishwasher safe and the reviews on these are pretty solid. At $14 today, this is the rock-bottom price we’ve seen so it shouldn’t too much of a stretch on your wallet.
If you didn’t take advantage of the first aid kit deal we posted last week, pick up this larger 130-piece set for just $16 with code PMYHZA9L. It’s full of bandages, scissors, anti-bacterial wipes, even a glow stick and compass so it will really come in handy during emergencies and is perfect to store in your car. This kit normally sells for $23 so at $16 today, you won’t feel like it cost you an arm and leg.
Laser light projectors are the easiest way to decorate for the holidays. No ladders and no untangling light strands required. This Star Shower Motion projector has red and green lights that dance around your house in varying patterns (watch videos of them in action) and it will automatically turn on when it gets dark.
The Gerber Dime packs eight tools into a keychain-sized multitool that’s less than 3" long when closed, and you can grab one for $15 from Amazon today. Even if you don’t need it for yourself, it’d make a great stocking stuffer.
Our readers have bought thousands of OxyLED’s T-02 motion-sensing light strips over the years, but if you’ve found them to be to annoying to charge, the T-04 is a great upgrade.
Like the T-02, the T-04 can attach to basically any surface via the included adhesive strips, and will automatically light up when it detects motion in the dark. The main difference is the battery: rather than charging AAAs or plugging in a microUSB cable, the T-04's battery pack is fully detachable, and plugs directly into any USB charging port. I have a couple of these set up around my apartment, and they work extremely well.
If you’re the type to carry around a blade on the daily, you’ll be happy to know your options just got even more portable. Like, keychain levels of portable. Snag the excellent WESN Titanium Microblade for 40 bucks with a Kickstarter preorder.
The WESN has already sliced and diced its funding goal many times over, and also acts as a bottle opener and screwdriver.
With just a few pumps, the Misto olive oil sprayer can turn your favorite olive oil (or any other cooking oil, for that matter), into an aerosol, making it easy to give salads and meats a quick spritz, or to grease a pan if you run out of cooking spray. I own one of these, and use it all the time.
Thousands of our readers have bought Bowflex’s adjustable SelectTech dumbbells, and you can put them in your own home gym today for $220, the best price since Amazon and Walmart got into a bizarre automated price war earlier in the year.
That’s a decent chunk of change, but they barely take up any space, each dumbbell can go up to 52.5 pounds (apologies to your delivery driver) and make it more likely that you’ll work out this winter when it’s too cold to go to the gym.
REI is about to make you that more inclined to get outside. Right now, you can grab up to 30% off gear from Patagonia, Arc’teryx, Sorel, REI C-Op, and more during their Gear Up, Get Out sale. There’s everything from camping, to paddling, to hiking, to cycling, and everything in between. It’ll take some time to sort through everything, so you’d better get started now.
Plus, if you’re a member, use the code GEARUP20 and get 20% off any single full-price item, and an extra 20% off any REI Garage item.
I know people are skeptical about Bluetooth-connected apps for devices that have existed without them for decades, but the Sonicare app is actually really cool. From Shane’s Gear review:
It’s good then the app is amazing, and changes the toothbrushing game if you actually use it. The Connected app tracks where you’re brushing (and not brushing), how long you brush for, where you’re using too much force, and more. The app will also keep track of when you need to replace brush heads, and your dentist can even use the app to view your brushing data and make notes of where you need to make changes.
In terms of the brush itself, you get basically every feature under the sun—this is the top-of-the-line in the Sonicare family, after all—including that awesome wireless charging cup.
Three different colors of the DiamondClean are marked down to all-time low prices today, and have a $30 coupon available, which makes these deals truly fantastic. Unfortunately, those prices vary by color, so you’ll get the best deal if you go with pink (think of it as a pink tax refund), followed closely by the white model, while the black model comes in at $11 more.
For me, the most common answer to “Where did you get that?” is H&M. The stores are mad houses and the clearance sections are disorganized, but digging through them is so worth it. Right now, they’re having a pre-Black Friday sale, with up to 50% off select “party styles” (though there’s more than just party styles mixed in) and I’ll be there’s something in there that you’ll want.
Plus, use the code 9054 and grab free shipping on your order. Just one more reason not to interact with a real human this week.
