There’s also a few discounts on microSD cards, NAS-ready HDDs, and SSDs. Of course, you’ll want to visit Amazon’s sale page to see the full list. And as with any Gold Box, these prices will only stick around for today.


Das Keyboard Model S | $100 | Amazon

You can find a mechanical keyboard for under $50 these days, but premium models are definitely worth the splurge if you spend a lot of time at your desk. Das’s legendary Model S was one of the first modern keyboards to popularize loud and clicky Cherry MX Blue switches, and the Mac keycap model is down to $100 right now on Amazon, within $10 of an all-time low.


Let’s get this out of the way early, these discounted noise-canceling heapdhones won’t sound as great or block noise as well as a high end pair of Sony or Bose. But at $120, these Plantronics BackBeat PRO 2s are a fraction of the cost and will improve your commute by a significant margin.

If you’re still using those basic ass Apple headphones, these will be a significant upgrade. You can listen to up to 24 hours of music before you’ll need to recharge or switch to a wired connection.

Better still, these are the cheapest these particular cans have ever been.


2-Pack Eufy Smart Plugs | $26 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Anker makes smart plugs now, because Anker makes everything, and the compact model is down to just $26 for a 2-pack this week, down from the usual $40.

Smart plugs are basically the atomic unit of smart home gear, and like pretty much all of these things, Anker’s let you control or schedule your outlet with both your phone and with Alexa. Their built-in energy monitoring feature, however, is a little less common, and a great inclusion at this price. Plus, its slim design means it won’t block the other outlet on a receptacle, so you can plug something else in (including a second smart plug).


Cyxus Blue Light Filter Computer Glasses | $16 | Amazon | Clip coupon code on page
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

While blue-light filter glasses have been shown to be effective at reducing eyestrain for anyone who spends their day staring at a screen, most models look like you’re about to spend your day at the shooting range. That’s not the case with these discounted Cyxus computer glasses.

While they look like your run-of-the-mill, wayfarer/Warby Parker wannabes, they offer the same benefits as those yellow-tinted frames from other manufacturers. These promise to block the adverse affects of blue light, leading to better sleep and fewer headaches.

To get the best price, make sure to clip the 20% off coupon on the page.


Refurb UE Boom 2 | $57 | Woot
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

The UE Boom 2 is the waterproof sequel for one of the best Bluetooth speakers of all time, and Woot’s marked it down to $57, the best price we’ve ever seen. It’s on clearance in multiple colors, including Tropical, Cherry Bomb, Marina, Panther and Deep Radiance Apple.


RAVPower HyperAir Qi Pad | $20 | Amazon | Promo code KINJADJ2

RAVPower’s HyperAir Qi charging pad is one of the few models out there to support the fastest-possible 7.5W iPhone charging, and you can get it for just $20 today with promo code KINJADJ2.

Advertisement

To be clear, there are a lot of Qi pads that support 10W charging for certain Android devices, but iPhones require a very specific frequency to enable their maximum charging speed of 7.5W, and this is one of the most affordable compatible pads we’ve seen, and the cheapest we’ve seen with the necessary Quick Charge 3.0 power adapter included.


Surgu Rebel Tech Kit | $10 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Sugru is right up there with binder clips and the Raspberry Pi in Lifehacker’s pantheon of must-have gear, and you can pick up their Rebel Tech Kit for an all-time low $10 today. That includes four packs in four different colors, a remover tool, and a book with 14 projects to get you started.

Today’s Best Home Deals

Dyson vacuums dominated the nominations in our Kinja Co-Op for best vacuum, but they can be prohibitively expensive. Today though, refurbs of the popular Dyson Ball Animal 2 are down to $275 on Amazon, or nearly $100 less than usual.

The Dyson Ball 2 includes a brush that automatically adjusts when you move from carpets to hard floors to seal in suction, and its included tangle free turbine tool is great for furniture as well. It also features HEPA filters throughout the vacuum to keep dust inside, and yes, it rests on top of a ball for easy maneuverability. This price is only available today, and will probably sell out early, so get your before they’re all sucked up.


We’re not done with winter yet, but you can get through the rest of it (or just warm up your fingers in your overly cold office all year long) with these Zippo hand warmers. Unlike those disposable chemical hand warmers, Zippos lasts for either six or 12 hours depending on the model, and can be re-used by filling it with a small amount of lighter fluid. Plus, they just look really cool.

Master Lock 5900D Portable Safe | $14 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

A lockbox doesn’t do a whole lot to deter thieves if they can just grab the entire thing off your shelf, but this compact Master Lock 5900D includes a built-in security cable so you can secure it to something solid. So you could, say, attach it to some pipes and use it as a tiny at-home safe. or secure it to a heavy cooler at the beach if you want to make your phone harder to steal when you go for a swim.

This thing’s been around since 2012, but today’s price is the best Amazon’s ever listed.


Launch OBD2 Scanner Sale | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Your car often tries to tell you things, but most can only communicate in the primitive language of check engine lights, just like how a cat can scream dozens of obscenities at you, but they all just sound like “meow.” While cat translators don’t yet exist, car ones do, and a bunch of code readers from Launch are on sale, including a basic consumer model for just $22. The more expensive models in the sale will record readings while you rev the engine, or can be updated online, but for the vast majority of people, the cheap model is all you really need at home.


Brother P-Touch Label Maker | $15 | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

That love interest of yours might not be so into labels, but we here at The Inventory are very into labels, and label makers, and slapping labels on all the things everywhere. And you don’t even have to have a type-A personality to know the pure, unbridled joy that comes with organizing your life with personalized fancy stickers, because this high-tech Brother Label Maker is down to $15 on Amazon today. With the exception of some very short-lived $10 deals, that’s the best price we’ve seen. The full keyboard makes it easy to use, and you can store up to 30 labels for easy re-printing—hence why we’d label this a great deal, and your non-committal S.O. a jerk.

Right now, select styles of sweaters, activewear, skirts, dresses and more are half off — which means a good portion of the stock is under $10.

It’s worth it though, because right now, you can bring one home for just $46, after clipping the $3 off coupon. Included in the set is two syringes of whitening gel, plus an LED light that speeds up the whitening process, in addition to a mouth tray and case.

Today’s Best Gaming Deals

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe | $52 | Amazon

2D Mario > 3D Mario don’t @ me.

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe has enough levels to keep you jumping and stomping until Mario Maker 2 comes out, and it’s down to $52 on Amazon today, the best price we’ve seen on the new Switch release.


Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (PS4) | $20 | Amazon
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (Xbox One) | $20 | Amazon

If you malakas haven’t picked up Assassin’s Creed Odyssey yet (and you should, because it’s amazing), Amazon just marked it down to $20 on PS4 and Xbox One, which is even cheaper than we saw on Black Friday. I paid full price for this, and got a solid 80 hours out of it, with no regrets.



Hyperkin The Duke Xbox One/PC Controller (Black) | $48 | Amazon | Clip the coupon
Hyperkin The Duke Xbox One/PC Controller (Green) | $50 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

I’ve gotta say, I didn’t realize anyone had fond memories of the gigantic original Xbox controller, but Hyperkin brought it back for the Xbox One and PC for a reason, I suppose. The Duke is almost entirely faithful to the original, for better or worse, but added in a couple of small shoulder buttons to mirror the black and white buttons, and an OLED screen on the front that plays the original Xbox’s boot animation when you start using the controller. Was that necessary? Hell no. But it’s awesome.

The Duke came out last year for $70, but now it’s marked down to $50 on Amazon in both black and green, and the black model also has a small clippable coupon to save even more.

TCL 65R617 65" TV | $830 | Walmart

TCL’s affordable 6-series TVs are famous for offering every form of HDR (including top-shelf Dolby Vision), local dimming zones for better contrast and black levels, and even excellent Roku software. So if you want to upgrade before March Madness kicks off in a few weeks, the 65" model just dropped to a new all-time low price of $830, which is actually $100 cheaper than we saw on Black Friday.


Any competitive gamer worth her salt considers three main things when shopping for a monitor: refresh rate, response time, and price. This $170 Dell D2719HGF delivers on all three.

This 27-inch LED monitor offers a 144Hz refresh rate and fast 2ms response time thanks to its TN panel. Sure 1ms would have been nicer but if you’re on a budget, this one is hard to pass it up.

Side note: This one is listed as FreeSync, but a few sources show that it’s compatible with G-Sync after an update.


Aukey Compact Dual USB Wall Charger | $6 | Amazon | Promo code AUKEYZP2

This tiny, $6 USB charger isn’t much bigger than the one that ships with every iPhone, except it has two ports, folding prongs, and 2.4A of total power, compared to the 1A Apple gives you. No surprise, it’s one of our top sellers of all time. Just use promo code AUKEYZP2 to get the deal.


SoundPEATS TrueFree True Wireless Earbuds | $22 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

It took about two years, but we’ve reached the point where true wireless earbuds are an affordable commodity, rather than an expensive luxury. These SoundPEATS TrueFree earbuds have solid Amazon reviews, and include a battery charging case for extended playtime, just like the sets from the big name brands. Cut the cord for just $22 today with promo code TZ87AW4S. Just don’t expect them to become a status symbol meme like AirPods.


Dual Arm Monitor Stand Full Motion | $50 | Amazon | Promo code 2WSTMQXD

So you’ve got two monitors now, like the omnipotent hacker or cokehead stockbroker archetypes from the movies. Congrats! But the effect isn’t truly complete until you mount those monitors to arms that let you move and articulate them in any direction, depending on the situation. This gas spring mount holds two screens up to 14.3 pounds each, and it’s an absolute steal at $39 with promo code 2WSTMQXD.


Nebula Capsule | $255 | Amazon

Anker, as you probably know by now, makes a lot of products. But I don’t think any of them are as ambitious as the Nebula Capsule, a
