BEST TECH DEALS

Anker SoundCore Mini 2 | $21 | Amazon | Clip the coupon
Image: Amazon

Anker dominated the Kinja Co-Op for best Bluetooth speaker, and the second-generation, extra-portable SoundCore Mini 2 just got its best discount ever.

Clip the coupon on the page to get $9 off this remarkably loud speaker. Of course, it won’t sound as good as Anker’s bigger speakers but if portability is your primary concern, this IPX7 rated unit is the one to buy.


Anker Soundcore Life 2 Noise Canceling Bluetooth Headphones | $65 | Amazon | Promo code SDCLIFE2

Anker’s audio efforts may be best known for its plethora of Bluetooth earbuds, but they’re entering the over-ear space in a big way lately, and you can get their brand new Soundcore Life 2 noise canceling cans for just $65 today with promo code SDCLIFE2.

Advertisement

They fold up to fit into an included carrying case, they work both in wired and wireless mode, and they run for up to 30 hours with noise canceling enabled (60 if you’re using an AUX cable for your audio), which is excellent at this price. But what sets the Soundcore Life 2s apart from similarly priced competitors is Anker’s signature BassUp mode. Just push a button twice, and the headphones will automatically adjust their EQ to emphasize the low end of your music.


iPad 32GB | $280 | Amazon
iPad 128GB | $355 | Amazon

Unless you really need the iPad Pro (and you almost definitely do not), the standard, vanilla 2018 iPad is a terrific tablet for both consuming and creating media. It even works with the Apple Pencil, the first non-Pro iPad to do so.

While we saw some better deals on these around Black Friday (if you were quick enough to snag them), $280 for 32GB and $355 for 128GB are still terrific prices. If you ask me, it’s worth buying one of these for the express purpose of playing Civilization VI on the go.


Anker USB C Hub, 3-in-1 Type C Hub | $27 | Amazon | Clip coupon on page
Anker USB C Hub, 5-in-1 USB C Adapter | $36 | Amazon

USB-C will be truly ubiquitous one of these days, but for the next few years at least, owners of USB-C laptops will probably want to carry a dongle or two. A couple of Anker’s highly rated adapters are on sale right now, so just be sure to clip the coupon code for the 3-in-1 model.


TriggerPoint AcuCurve Massage Cane | $10 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

A little self care can go a long way, and TriggerPoint’s AcuCurve massage cane lets you give yourself much needed massages, no assistance required. The various curves and nodes let you use it in a variety of places, including the muscles around your spine pinning it against the wall, your shoulder by pulling on it from the front, or even your calves and feet while sitting down.

At an all-time low $10, it costs about as much as, what, five minutes at a masseuse? Buy it, it’ll make you feel better.


Anker PowerLine II 10' Lightning Cable | $10 | Amazon | Promo code CABK8434. Works on all four colors.
Anker PowerLine II 6' USB-C Cable | $8 | Amazon | Promo code CABKA848
Anker PowerLine II 3' USB-C Cable With High Speed Data | $15 | Amazon | Promo code CABK8485
Graphic: Shep McAllister

With TPE shells, reinforced wiring, and large, durable collars, Anker’s PowerLine II charging cables are built like tanks, and can hold up to even serial cable abusers. And if they somehow do stop working, Anker’s lifetime warranty means that you can swap them out for a new one for free.

Today on Amazon, promo code CABK8434 will get you a 10' Lightning cable for just $10, in whatever color you want. I have one of these tucked into my couch cushions. It’s long enough to comfortably reach anywhere on the couch, and durable enough to withstand me tugging on it when it gets stuck between cushions, or under the dog.

If you need a USB-C version, the 6' one is just $8 with code CABKA848, or you can get a 3' version with 10 Gbps data transfer speeds for $15 with code CABK8485.


RAVPower Qi Pad | $8 | Amazon | Promo code KINJAHTY

There’s no such thing as owning too many Qi chargers, so set up another one in your house or on your desk for just $10 with promo code KINJAHTY. This model will charge compatible Android phones at 10W, though iPhones will be limited to the standard 5W.


At first glance, Anker’s SoundCore Spirits look a lot like the reader-favorite SoundBuds Slims, but they do have a few key upgrades. The big one is IPX7 water resistance, plus added sweat-countering measures from Anker that make them ideal for working out, especially compared to the IPX5-rated Slims. They also last a bit longer with an eight hour battery (vs. seven), include a built-in cord shortener, and should have a bit more bass as well.

The SoundCore Spirits have sold for $30-$40 since they launched last year, but today, they’re just $24, no promo code required.


XD002 Hot-Swappable 2-Key Aluminum Macro Pad | $19 | Massdrop
Photo: Massdrop

Alright, we found it. The most adorable piece of nerdy gadgetry in existence. It’s a tiny little two-key keyboard kit that you can use for programmable macros, now only $19 at Massdrop. It has customizable RGB lighting, and most importantly, allows you to swap in whatever mechanical key switches and key caps you want.

Note: It doesn’t actually come with switches or keycaps, you’ll need to provide your own. I told you it was nerdy.


Panasonic Eneloop AA 4-Pack | $17 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you want to start collecting Eneloop batteries (and you should), the best place to start is the 4-pack of AAs with a charger, and you can get it for just $17 right now. That’s not quite as cheap as the short-lived $15 deal we saw over the holidays, but it’s still a solid value.


Anker SmartCharge F3 Bluetooth FM Transmitter | $26 | Amazon | Promo code ROAVF3SS
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Anker’s new SmartCharge F3 is a Bluetooth FM transmitter that takes the Bluetooth signal from your phone, and rebroadcasts it the FM radio station of your choice (it can even scan to tell you the best option), giving you truly wireless audio and handsfree calls in older vehicles that don’t have Bluetooth built in. And since this is an Anker brand, you also get a high speed USB charging port with Quick Charge 3.0.

Advertisement

We’ve seen plenty of products that do this before, but the SmartCharge has one more trick up its sleeve: a car finder. Once you turn off your car and Bluetooth disconnects, the Roav app will drop a pin on a map, and help you find your vehicle later. You probably don’t need that feature very often, but it could come in handy on confusing city streets, or sprawling stadium parking lots.


Razer DeathAdder Elite | $40 | Amazon
Graphic: Razer

Most gaming mice look like futuristic EMP grenades or snacks for Optimus Prime, but Razer’s DeathAdder series is appealing because it keeps things clean and simple.

Advertisement

The DeathAdder Elite raises the bar with a truly ridiculous 16,000 DPI sensor, Omron mechanical switches, full RGB backlighting, and every other feature you could want, and you can order it from Amazon for $40 today, one of the best prices we’ve seen.


Teckin Smart Power Strip | $23 | Amazon | Promo code 1549VL86
Photo: Amazon

At $23 (with promo code 1549VL86), this smart power strip costs about as much as a standard smart plug, but it includes four smart AC outlets that you can control individually with your smartphone or Alexa, plus four USB ports too (though you can only control them as a set).

Advertisement

The free control app and Alexa will recognize the power strip as five different devices (four AC outlets, and the USB ports as a group) , all of which you can name, schedule, connect to your favorite voice assistant, and control from anywhere.


Private Internet Access Exclusive Deals
Graphic: Private Internet Access

VPNs have been in the news, and whether you want to get around video geoblocks, circumvent proxy filters, or just keep prying eyes out of your browsing data while using sketchy public Wi-Fi, reader-favorite Private Internet Access has a deal to fit your needs.

Advertisement

Private Internet Access doesn’t do much in the way of discounting, but they offer exclusive pricing and packages just for our readers that you won’t find anywhere else. Here are your options, and what you’d pay if you bought the same plan elsewhere:

These deals are only for our readers, but we aren’t sure how long they’ll be available, so go ahead and sign up while you can.

BEST HOME DEALS

Dremel MM20 Tool Kit | $36 | Amazon

You might not need to use a Dremel all that often, but it’s one of those things everyone should keep in their tool box. Luckily, Amazon’s offering a basic starter kit today for just $36, an all-time low.

Advertisement

The Dremel MM-20 is an oscillating Dremel, rather than a rotating one like you’re probably more familiar with, which makes it ideal for work on horizontal surfaces like floors. It features a variable speed motor that can spin anywhere from 10,000 to 21,000 RPM, and includes six accessories to get you started with projects all around the house.


$4 off Select Pampers Diapers | Amazon | Discount at checkout. Extra savings with Subscribe & Save
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Even if you don’t need to buy diapers, you should send word of this $4 Pampers coupon on Amazon to all the parents of young children in your life. When combined with optional Subscribe & Save savings, the discounts can add up, and most parents will tell you that every dollar counts. The coupon works on a dozen different boxes, so no matter what size your baby is, you should be able to take advantage.


Lodge Combo Cooker 3 Qt. | $27 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

You love Lodge’s cast iron skillets, but have you tried their dutch oven? The three quart “combo cooker” only $27 on Amazon today, or about $9 less than usual. And while it’s an excellent dutch oven, its coolest feature is actually its lid. Just flip it over, and you’ve got yourself an extra cast iron skillet. That’s two great pieces of cookware for the price of one.

Advertisement

Just note that this is a fairly small piece of cookware, and it best suited for cooking for two. For a sense of size, the skillet is roughly 10" in diameter, which is usable, but a little small if you’re cooking for a whole family.


Gerber Pocket Square Knife | $24 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

If you like to keep a pocket knife on you (to open up all of those Kinja Deals purchases, obviously), Gerber’s Pocket Square is housed inside a contoured aluminum handle that doesn’t necessarily look like a knife when it’s folded up. It’s probably not the most ergonomic blade Gerber makes, but if you ask me, it’s one of the best looking. Get it for $24 on Amazon today, an all-time low.


Our readers flipped for the GIR: Get It Right spatula, and now, the GIR: Get It Right Premium Silicone Mini Flipper, basically the same spatula in a smaller size, is on sale in a range of hues for just $12. It’s heat resistant up to 550 degrees, so don’t stress about it melting or burning your hand, plus the GIR Mini Flipper is easy to clean and dishwasher safe. And at it’s all time low price in certain colors, it’s a deal that won’t leave you barely scraping by.


Sunnydaze Barco Tabletop Fireplace | $132 | Amazon
Image: Amazon

No built-in fireplace? No problem! Heat up your home this winter with one of these discounted, decorative tabletop fireplaces from Sunnydaze.

Advertisement

These faux fireplaces don’t require any gas or electricity; just pour bio ethanol fuel into the canister and light it up for a warm, aesthetically pleasing display that lasts up to 2 hours. The fireplaces come in different sizes, shapes, and price points, and a snuffer and feet to protect your surface from damage are included with each. This fiery hot deal won’t last forever, though. Get a personal fireplace for yourself before this sale flames out.


Hamilton Beach Bread Maker | $48 | Amazon
Image: Amazon

Here’s a deal that’s risen to the top of our wishlists today: This Hamilton Beach Bread Maker is a fully-baked steal on Amazon today at just $48. That’s not much dough, if you ask me, considering it retails elsewhere for $70.

Advertisement

Seriously, though, this carb-producing machine can manifest either 1.5- or 2-pound loaves, and offers three crust settings. Not to mention, the pan is dishwasher safe, and there are 12 cook settings, even one for the gluten-free set. And please, consider taking advantage of the delay timer to ensure you wake up to the smell of your own personal bakery each morning. Trust me, you knead this.


Contigo Autoclose Tumbler (Clear/Monaco color only) | $10 | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

The pro of using a tumbler over a traditional water bottle is, obviously, the straw. The con, therefore, is an increased risk of spills, since the straw needs to have a place to go. But the Contigo Autoclose Tumbler has completely solved that problem, thus creating a tumbler that’s pretty much perfect. And right now, you can get one in the Clear/Monaco color combination for just $10, $1 away from its all time lowest price.

The brand, which also makes our readers’ favorite travel mug, has employed Autoclose technology to allow the lid to seal up the dread straw space when the straw is removed, so you can shake or mix your drink to your heart’s content. Also, this tumbler is double walled, so no need to sweat any slippery condensation that might cause it to slip out of your hands. If it does somehow fall, though, that’s OK; the tumbler is also made out of shatterproof plastic.


Up to 70% Off Bed & Bath | Wayfair
Image: Wayfair

You probably spend a good amount of time in your own bedroom and bathroom, so treat yourself to any upgrade your heart desires (or your home requires) with Wayfair’s Semi-Annual Bed & Bath Sale, happening now. Take up to 70% off a wide range of accents and essentials, including mattresses, vanities, throw pillows, window treatments, and linens, just to name a few. It’s a deal you’ll appreciate literally every single day.


Ninja Smart Blender | $66 | Amazon | Clip the 5% coupon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Ninja makes our readers’ favorite affordable blender, and today, you can get the company’s sleek new smart model for just $66 after clipping the 5% coupon, which is actually cheaper than Black Friday.

You’re probably saying to yourself, “why does a blender need a touchscreen, this is stupid, you’re stupid, I’m glad Hulk Hogan body slammed you.” But think about it for a second. Blenders are inherently messy. Your concoctions will inevitably spill, drip, and splatter, and even in small quantities, that can make the base of the blender sticky and gross. Wouldn’t it be easier to wipe down a flat pane of glass than to meticulously polish a bunch of buttons and switches and knobs?


Superio Bidet Dual Nozzle, Adjustable Temperature Bidet | $40 | Amazon | Promo code 43OFFSUPBID
Graphic: Shep McAllister

There are $20 bidets, and bidets that cost as much as a mortgage payment, but today’s deal seems to strike a great balance between the two in terms of features, but with a price much closer to the former than the latter.

This model from Superior Bidet has two features that you won’t find on the cheapest alternatives: Dual nozzles for optional feminine cleaning, and adjustable water temperature. To get the latter, you’ll need to run a skinny hose that connects under your bathroom sink to your hot water, but your undercarriage will appreciate the effort, especially this time of year.

Advertisement

It doesn’t have electronic controls or an automatic deodorizer, but for a perfectly reasonable $40, it’s tough to complain. In fact, this is the most affordable bidet we’ve ever seen with hot water support. Just be sure to use code 43OFFSUPBID at checkout to get it for the best price ever.


TaoTronics Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier | $25 | Amazon | Promo code KINJAVEQ
Photo: Amazon

For some, a humidifier in winter isn’t an option — it’s a necessity. (I swear, every night I forget to turn mine on, I wake up with a scarily dry throat and parched skin.) At $25 with promo code KINJAVEQ, this TaoTronics Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier is an affordable, yet reliable option for adding some moisture to your air.

Advertisement

It’s ultra quiet, and has two adjustable nozzles for better vapor distribution throughout the room. Plus, it’s not mammoth in size, but just big enough to last through the night. Get one — or several — for your home and/or office and finally breathe a big sigh of relief.


Prepara PP01-HS100 Herb Savor | $19 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

Update: So the original deal I wrote about sold out, but there’s a silver lining! There’s an updated model with an even lower price. Sadly it’s just an add-on, but I’m sure you can find something else worthwhile on Amazon today. (Qi chargers anyone?)

If you’re anything like me, you’ve wasted your share of fresh herbs. In my defense, how many meals am I going make with parsley in in one week? Luckily, there’s the $19 Prepara PP01-HS100 Herb Savor.

Advertisement

This nifty little gadget promises to “triple the life of your fresh herbs,” making them last about three weeks. These BPA-free containers can house most fresh herbs, including basil, cilantro, mint, parsley, chives, rosemary, oregano, thyme, and dill. It’ll also stand vertically to save you space.

This current price is a few bucks shy of the best price we saw last year, but, heck, if you’re tired of seeing your herbs spoil, it’s a good time to invest.


Keep your drinks cold with one of these two discounted travel mugs. On top of being $3 to $6 less than usual, the Contigo brand is beloved by many of our readers because of their leak-proof seal.


Small Tumbler Candles | $5 | Yankee Candle
Graphic: Shep McAllister

I know the holidays are over, but holiday candle season never has to end if you don’t want it to. This week, Yankee Candle is blowing out small tumbler candles (35-55 hours of burn time) for just $5 each, including (but not limited to) the ever-popular fall and Christmas scents. Shipping is $6, or free if you spend $100, so stock up.


First Alert Wireless Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detector | $36 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

You should have a smoke and carbon monoxide detector on every level of your house, and in every bedroom, and this First Alert combines both into a single product for just $36, the best price since last summer. Do a mental audit of where all of your detectors are, and take advantage of this deal to fill in any gaps.

Most impressively of all, while it’s not truly a “smart” alarm like a Nest Protect, it does connect wirelessly to other First Alert alarms throughout your home to create a safety web. If one alarm goes off, they’ll all go off, and a voice will tell you where the danger lies.


4-Pack KitchenAid Mixing Bowls With Lids | $9 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

Your kitchen can never have enough mixing bowls, and this set of four from KitchenAid is a steal at just $9 today. They even have lids, meaning you can use them as leftover containers, or keep various ingredients fresher until you’re ready to cook.


Contigo Autoseal Cortland Water Bottle (Grayed Jade color only) | $7 | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Contigo makes our readers’ favorite travel mug, but the brand also knows its way around a water bottle. This 24-ounce Contigo Cortland features the same spill-proof, leak-proof Autoseal lid as the beloved mug, and today, it’s just $7 in this grayed jade hue. It’s a deal that will have thirsty bargain hunters sipping on savings.


Wilton Cookie Press | $17 | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

You won’t have to fork over tons of dough to get this innovation in cookie baking technology: The Wilton Cookie Press is just $17, and it promises to make boring round cookies obsolete.

Advertisement

The press, which can most accurately be described as a cookie dough gun, comes with 12 discs featuring different design options. Simply load up the barrel with dough, squeeze the trigger, and shoot out cookies in various delightful shapes directly onto the baking sheet. It’s a sweet deal that smart cookies should pull the trigger on now.


EZBASICS Wine Foil Cutter | $7 | Amazon | Apply 10% Off Coupon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

It would take more than foil to, well, foil my drinking plans. But it is admittedly annoying to have to pick away at the foil that covers some wine corks by hand. It seems, however, that this relatively minor issue can be solved with this handy wine foil cutter, now on sale for just $7, when you apply the 10% off coupon. Just place the cutter on top of the wine bottle, squeeze, and twist, and that wine is ready for uncorking. Because nothing should stand between you and your glass of pinot.


Wi-Fi connected home security cameras have largely taken over the baby monitor market, but nobody would blame you for feeling anxious about streaming a live video feed of your baby to the cloud. If you’d prefer to keep things local, Anker’s new Eufy SpaceView is a great all-in-one solution for just $126 (down from the usual $170).

Advertisement

The pan and tilt camera streams in 720p (most baby monitors are a paltry 240p) directly to the included LCD screen, over distances of up to 460', no Wi-Fi required. Somewhat ingeniously, Anker also included a detachable wide angle lens that expands the camera’s view up to 110°, so you can more easily keep an eye on your toddler when she starts to move around the room on her own.


Dr. Meter Stud Finder | $13 | Amazon | Promo code X34JSZM5
Photo: Amazon

Even if you don’t do much DIY work around the house, a stud finder is worth keeping in every toolbox, and this one is just $13 today with promo code X34JSZM5 (the ensuing dad jokes, however, are free). It even has separate modes for finding studs, pipes, and live electrical wires.


Anker Roav Jump Starter Pro | $75 | Amazon | Promo code ROAVR320

At $75, Anker’s new Roav Jump Starter Pro isn’t the cheapest car jump starter we’ve seen, but its 800A of peak output mean it can start pretty much any engine, up to 6L for a gas vehicle, or 3L for diesel. If you don’t buy own of these, you’ll probably be kicking yourself somewhere down the road (pun intended) when you’re stranded in your driveway with somewhere to be.

Advertisement

This being an Anker product, you’ll also find two high speed USB charging ports, plus a flashlight that doubles as an SOS strobe. There’s also a compass, because why not? Even if you already own a jump starter, these make amazing gifts. Believe me, your giftee will remember you the first time they’re able to start their car in the morning to get to work on time.


Krud Kutter 32 oz. Bottle | $6 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Krud Kutter is an invaluable tool in your kitchen cleaning arsenal, especially for your largest messes, and $6 is the best price Amazon’s ever listed on a bottle. Don’t let Jolie Kerr down by missing this deal.


25% Off Furniture, Select Decor, and Select Bedding | Anthropologie
Image: Anthropologie

Whenever I walk into an Anthropologie, I realize that my apartment is all wrong because it is not completely filled with all the cool, rustic, yet somehow also glamorous furnishings that the store has to offer. But if there were ever a day to makeover your home — and by extension, your life — it would be today, because Anthropologie is taking 25% off furniture, and select bedding, bath, and decor.

Advertisement

You could do something as big as purchasing a new couch, as medium as gracing your floor with a new rug, or as subtle as replacing your knobs with hipster-cool hardware. But whatever you do, don’t miss this deal; speaking from experience here, I have an Anthropologie duvet cover, and I love it more than some of my blood relatives.
