Today’s Best Tech Deals

Kindle Paperwhite E-reader (7th Generation) | $75 | Woot
Graphic: Tercius
Advertisement

The previous generation Kindle Paperwhite is the best e-reader for almost everyone, and at $80, it’s a no-brainer for bookworms traveling during the summer vacation.

It’s missing the waterproofing found in the latest version, but the $50 savings isn’t something papyrophobiacs should skim over. Especially when you consider this version still holds thousands of books and can last weeks on a single charge.

(Heads up, Woot says these “started life as “International 3G” versions. Unfortunately, the 3G connectivity does not work in North America.” So they’re calling them WiFi-only models.)


Griarrac Cherry MX Switch Tester Mechanical Keyboards 9-Key Switch Testing Tool | $15 | Amazon | Clip the Coupon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Shopping for a mechanical keyboard is tough. It’s difficult to grasp exactly what “clickiness” you’re into when all you have is a description on a website. That’s where the Griarrac Cherry MX Switch Tester comes in handy.

Advertisement

This nifty $15 tool gives you a tactile understanding of what it feels like to press on each Cherry MX switch. This purchase would ultimately remove the guess work from shopping for a keyboard, but when some mechanical models cost upwards of $150 it’s a worthy investment. (Hell, it might even help you decide which of our reader’s picks you should buy.)

It doubles as a weird fidget toy, too, if that’s your thing. But you’ll find plenty of use for this, if you’re the type to evangelize mechanical keyboards—I know I am.

Sonos Refurb Sale | Sonos | Some colors not available
Graphic: Sonos
Advertisement

We occasionally see deals on individual Sonos refurbished products, but we’ve never seen a refurb sale like this.

For a limited time, you can grab a Sonos Play:1 for $119, a Sonos One with Alexa and Google Assistant for $139, a Play:5 for $399, a Playbar for $549, and a Sonos Sub for $549.

Advertisement

Note: If one color is showing up as out of stock, try the other.

Advertisement

The $119 Play:1 is the refurb deal we’re most used to seeing (though it’s been quite some time), but the others are extremely rare. Savings compared to buying them new range from $30 to $150, and you get the same one year warranty, free shipping, and free returns that you’d get with brand new speakers. So whether you’re starting your Sonos setup, or adding to the family, you’ll want to grab these before they’re gone.


Apple Watch Series 4 40mm | $350 | Amazon | Multiple models on sale, with discount shown at checkout after coupon
Apple Watch Series 4 44mm | $380 | Amazon | Multiple models on sale, with discount shown at checkout after coupon
Apple Watch Series 4 GPS + Cellular Stainless Steel 40mm | $629 | Amazon
Apple Watch Series 4 GPS + Cellular Stainless Steel 44mm | $679 | Amazon
Advertisement

The Apple Watch as a product line may have had a rocky launch, but its latest iteration, the Series 4, is a seriously impressive leap forward. So whether you’re finally upgrading your original model, or even getting your very first wearable, it’s the one you should buy, especially on sale.

Advertisement

For a limited time, Amazon’s got both the 40mm and 44mm GPS versions marked down by $50, with your choice, in a few different color/band combos. The rubbery sports band looks surprisingly nice in person, while the Sport Loop is like a very high quality velcro. These discounts are taken at checkout, and you should see the coupon that will be applied on the product page. You should be looking for models that will cost $350 (40mm) or $380 (44mm) to get the best deal.

If you want to go high end, you can also save $70 on a few stainless steel models with GPS and cellular connectivity. Look for the $629 (40mm) and $679 options (44mm).

Micromobility is the buzzword of the moment, and it’s true that in certain areas, single-person, electric-assisted transportation makes a ton of sense. But you don’t have to line the pockets of yet another Silicon Valley oligarch every time you want to rent an electric scooter or bike; you can just buy one upfront, and ride it wherever and whenever you’d like.

Today at Walmart, Hyper’s E-Ride city and mountain bikes are both on sale for $598. Aside from the different shape and tires, they can both scoot along at up to 20 mph for up to 20 miles on a charge, and of course, there are always pedals you can use as well.

Bestek Charging Cube | $20 | Amazon | Promo code BYVSYTTU
Photo: Amazon
Advertisement

This isn’t the only charging cube on the market, but it might just be the most clever.

Bestek’s Power Cube includes a dock that you can attach to any surface with screws or a an included 3M sticky pad. The cube then clicks into the dock, and release as necessary if you want to move it around or get easier access to it to plug something in. Other cubes are designed to mount under your desk in this way, but once they’re attached, they’re attached. This seems like a much smarter solution.

Advertisement

On the cube itself, you get three AC outlets, three USB ports, and even a USB-C port, though it’s limited to 15W of output, so it won’t be very useful for things like laptops. But hey, that’s what the AC outlets are for.

Get it for $20 with promo code BYVSYTTU.

Anker 10W Wireless Charger Stand | $14 | Amazon | Promo code KJANKER1

Once you own a phone with wireless charging, you quickly realize that you can never have enough Qi charging pads.

This 10W wireless stand from Anker can charge your phone while propping it up in either portrait or landscape mode, and while the obvious use case here is to put it on your desk at work, I have another suggestion: use it to hold up your phone in the kitchen while you have your recipe app open!

It’s priced at $17 right now, but promo code KJANKER1 will bring it down to under $14.

iOttie is best known for its smartphone car cradles, but they also make some of the best magnetic phone mounts on the road, and you can save on three different options today.

Whether you want to mount your phone on your dash, in front of your long-dormant CD slot, or in front of a vent, all you have to do is tap it into place. Just note that the dashboard and CD slot mounts are from iOttie’s iTap 2 line, with sturdier magnets, whereas the vent mount is one of iOttie’s original iTaps.

JackyLED 6-Outlet/4-USB Power Strip | $16 | Amazon | Promo code RJWW2VZ8

People who design giant power plugs that block multiple outlets should be jailed. But until that happens, this power strip is kind enough to space out its six outlets to accommodate those oversized plugs, and it’s only $16 today with promo code RJWW2VZ8. It even has four USB ports for your mobile devices, making it particularly great for a desk.

Instant Pot Ultra 6 qt. | $100 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister
Advertisement

The six quart Instant Pot Ultra is down to $100 right now, within $1 of an all-time low. You should buy one.

The Instant Pot Ultra features a completely revamped, dial-based UI that makes fine-tuned adjustments faster and easier than the older models. A new processor allows it to compensate for altitude and carry out completely custom programs, and it also has a few modes you won’t find on the standard Instant Pots, like cake, eggs, and sterilize.

If you’re worried that you won’t get a ton of use out of this thing, note that in addition to speedy pressure cooking, this is also our readers’ favorite slow cooker, and one of their favorite rice cookers too. It’s one of the most versatile kitchen gadgets you can own, and I use mine (this exact model) several times per week.

Amazon Echo Wall Clock | $25 | Amazon
Gif: Shep McAllister

Amazon’s Echo Wall Clock is a revelation for the specific (but I think quite large!) subset of people who:

1) Use Alexa timers in the kitchen with some regularity.

and

2) Don’t have an Echo Show with a screen built in.

Just pop in some batteries, hang the clock, and a ring of LEDs will automatically count down the minutes and final 60 seconds of any timer you set with your voice. It’s elegant, seamless, and I can’t stand how much I love the thing.

Advertisement

It came out late last year for $30, but it just got its first discount ever, down to $25. The clock is ticking on this deal though, so don’t waste any time.

AmazonBasics Sawhorses 900 Pound 2-Pack | $25 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

I bet you didn’t wake up today thinking that you were going to buy a sawhorse, but sometimes, life comes at you fast.

Advertisement

This two-pack of AmazonBasics sawhorses (yes, Amazon makes sawhorses, what of it?) can hold 900 pounds between them, and at $25, they’re cheaper than the model that can only hold 500 pounds. Even if you don’t do much sawing, you can use them to build your own desk or work table.

Whether you need to steam rice, fry up a chicken, or whip up an Instant Pot recipe, this Ninja Foodi XL Multi-Cooker can get the job done.

Advertisement

This pressure cooker, steamer and air fryer stand-in is an absolute unit, but deservedly so, considering it’s doing the work of three different appliances. And for those with a large kitchen space and a bunch of people to feed, this one’s 8qt. capacity makes making large batches of food easily.

Better still, it packs a dehydrate setting which can help you make your own jerky or dried fruit.

Advertisement

Right now, this XL model is at it’s lowest price ever, or about $70 less than usual. Of course, this is a Gold Box deal, so the discount will only stick around until the end of the day, or when until it’s sold out.

If you’re a veteran Pedialyte drinker or new to the game, you’re going to want to get in on this deal.

Here’s your no-brainer deal of the day. If you visit this page and enter your email, Grove Collaborative will give you $30 worth of Grove and Mrs. Meyer’s products for free when you spend $20 on anything else on the site. I was also given a free glass spray bottle and concentrated cleaner, for seemingly no reason at all.

After you enter your email, you’ll automatically be taken to a cart with more than $20 worth of popular items already added, but you can delete those and replace them with anything you’d like. Grove’s well stocked with laundry supplies, cleaning gear, pet products, personal care, and even baby items...you know, stuff that you have to buy anyway. So you might as well get a bunch of Mrs. Meyer’s stuff for free.

Note: The offer will also give you 60 days of Grove’s VIP free shipping membership for free, which will auto-renew at a rate of $20 per year, but you can cancel the auto-renew immediately after ordering.


phil&teds Lobster High Chair | $67 | Amazon

You have a high chair for your kid at home. But what about random restaurants? Friends’ houses? Your parents’ house during the holidays? That’s where phil&teds Lobster chair shines. The Lobster doesn’t need any legs, because it just clips onto the side of any table, like a giant chip clip. That means it’s small enough to keep in the trunk of your car, or even fly with.

Advertisement

It also has great reviews (which I guess is important since you’re putting your baby in it), and a product reviewer uploaded this photo, which is worth some bonus points too. Normally $80-$90, you can get it for $67 today, which means you’ll have more money to spend on Cheerios to get flung across the room.

Here’s a deal to get your tail wagging: If you have a pupper (or kitty) and she eats, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll find food she’ll like in today’s Gold Box.

There’s a lot of Purina treats here for cats, and just a handful for dogs. But ignoring that disservice to the best pets around, there are a lot of great deals here on things that you were probably going to buy anyway.

Amazon also offers “50% off first dog or cat food Subscribe & Save order,” so keep a look out for a coupon to get the best prices.

Just note that this is a Gold Box, so these prices will only stick around for a day. So show your dog (or cat) you love them, visit the main page, and treat them to a fancy feast.

Swiffer Air Cleaning System 2.0 | $71 | Amazon

Swiffer makes an air purifier to keep dust off your furniture, which is a brilliant bit of marketing on their part, but it actually has solid reviews, and looks way nicer than just about every other air purifier out there.

At only $71 (the best price ever outside of a one-day Gold Box deal), it’s no surprise that it doesn’t have true HEPA filtration for allergens, but it’ll still get the job done with dust and pet hair. Just note that this price is only available today, or until sold out. Sneeze, and you might miss it.

Everlane’s Choose What You Pay section (which, for the unindoctrinated, allows shoppers to choose from three different, discounted price points for an item) is always a good source of savings on some of the brand’s coveted, stylish basics, but it’s usually pretty limited. That is, until now.

Everlane has flooded their Choose What You Pay sections for both men and women with a ton of new overstocked inventory, including a selection of coveted Everlane denim and shoes for the ladies and a range of chinos for guys. This is likely the last you’ll see of these styles, so take your pick before they sell out, as many of Everlane’s offerings are wont to do.
