Apple Smart Keyboard for 10.5-inch iPad Pro | $110 | DailySteals | Promo code KJSMARTKEY

The Apple Smart Keyboard is the perfect accessory to go with that 2017 iPad Pro you bought yesterday. At $110, this is a great deal made even better by the fact that it costs $42 less than whatā€™s currently on Amazon right nowā€”just make sure to use the promo code KJSMARTKEY.

Itā€™ll connect to your iPad Pro with the Smart Connector and folds into a cover when not in use. And, hey, if you bought an iPad Pro... you actually want to do more than dick around with it, right?


If your computer or phone uses USB-C, itā€™s worth keeping an adapter around to turn it into an old-school USB 3.0 port for your legacy devices. This space gray aluminum adapter from Nonda is attractive, only $8 (down from the usual $10), about as small as these things can possibly be.


Yi 1080p Security Camera | $25 | Amazon | Promo code YI4HOME9
Yi 1080p Outdoor Security Camera | $64 | Amazon | Promo code YICAME69
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Our readers have bought thousands of Yiā€™s home security cameras, and today, you can get a 1080p model for $25, the best price weā€™ve seen ā€” just clip the coupon on the page and apply code YI4HOME9.Ā 

Want to monitor an outdoor space? This weatherproof model with two-way audio support is also on sale for $64 with promo code YICAME69.

Yi offers an online cloud DVR service that will store seven days of motion detection footage (six second clips when it detects movement) for free, or more footage if you pay. That said, you can choose for forego the cloud service altogether, and just store your clips locally on a microSD card.


Anker Wireless Vertical Ergonomic Mouse | $17 | Amazon | AKMOUSE3
Anker Wired Vertical Ergonomic Mouse | $10 | Amazon | AKMOUSE4
Anker 2.4G Wireless Vertical Ergonomic Mouse | $14 | Amazon | LOVEAK78

When we asked you to nominate your choice for the very best work mouse, the Anker Ergonomic Mouse was one of your top three picks. And right now, thereā€™s a coupon to bring it down to just $10.

Additionally, there are also discounts on its wirelessĀ cousins if youā€™re as wire-averse as I am. Make sure to copy and paste the coupon code at checkout to get the best price.


It should be a crime for any computer to ship with a spinning hard drive. Why manufacturers continue to do so, despite the dropping prices of SSDs, astonishes me. But, of course, you can correct this wrong-doing.

SSDs are more reliable and much, much faster than the traditional (see: antiquated) HDD. Both Crucialā€™s 2.5" and M.2 500GB SSDs are $58, and the smaller 240GB 2.5" SSD is the lowest weā€™ve ever seen at $34, so correct this manufacturer wrong right now.

You deserve better.


PNY Elite 512GB microSDXC Card | $200 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Thereā€™s no such thing as too much storage, but this... this 512GB microSDXC card from PNY may be overkill for most people. If youā€™re a dedicated Nintendo Switch user with a lot of games and plan on buying a whole lot more, this could be a solid $200 investment.

Youā€™ll be able to fit a ton of games, movies and music with half a terabyte of storage. And this $200 price may seem steep, but itā€™s $100 off the regular price and the best weā€™ve ever seen on this particular unit. If you end up buying this one, I applaud your commitment to storage.


Aukey SoundTank Bluetooth Speaker | $21 | Amazon | Promo code KINJA2AK

If you demand a lot out of your Bluetooth speakers, this discounted Aukey SoundTank might be just what youā€™re looking for.

Very few Bluetooth speakers can run for 30 hours on a charge, nevermind ones that cost $21. This model is also splash-proof, and features dual 5W drivers, meaning it should be loud enough for most occasions indoors or out. Just be sure to use promo code KINJA2AK at checkout to save a whopping $25.


Kindle Voyage | $130 | Woot
Photo: Gizmodo

The Kindle Voyage, which has been my personal Kindle for the last several years, is no more, supplanted by the Kindle Oasis. May it rest in peace. So if you donā€™t want to spend $250 on an Oasis, and the $129 Paperwhite doesnā€™t check all of your boxes, you should buy a Voyage from this Woot closeout while you still can.

Unlike some other recent Voyage deals weā€™ve seen, these arenā€™t refurbs. Theyā€™re brand new units with full warranties that were meant to be 3G models in Europe. The 3G connectivity doesnā€™t work in the U.S. however, so Woot is advertising them as Wi-Fi only.


Anker SoundBuds Slim+ Bluetooth Headphones | $22 | Amazon | Promo code SCHPSD66

Our readers voted Ankerā€™s SoundBuds Slims as their favorite affordable Bluetooth headphones, but we may need a recount, as Anker recently released the upgraded SoundBuds Slim+, on sale for just $22 today with promo code SCHPSD66.

The biggest change from the original model is the inclusion of AptX encoding, which should improve sound quality with compatible devices. Anker also claims that waterproofing has been improved, though theyā€™re both still rated as IPX5, so any change on that front is likely modest. One thing that hasnā€™t changed: the seven hour battery, which is excellent for earbuds of this size.


Shure SRH1540 Premium Closed-Back Headphones | $400 | Amazon | Use promo code KINJA20A
Shure SE112-K-BT1 Wireless Sound Isolating Earphones | $80 | Amazon | Use promo code KINJA20A
Shure SE215-CL Sound Isolating Earphones | $80 | Amazon | Use promo code KINJA20A
Shure SE112-GR Sound Isolating Earphones | $43 | Amazon | Use promo code KINJA20A

Shure consistently makes great headphones and right now you can use the promo code KINJA20A to save up to $100 on a few models on Amazon.

Consider the $400 Shure SRH1540. Normally $500, this premium, closed-back reference model offers sonics even the most critical audiophile would appreciate. Itā€™s big and a tad pricey, but if you have the dough itā€™s worth the investment.

Of course, there are also sub-$100 models to choose from, including a wired and wireless sound-isolating model.


Your car is a great place for a wireless charger, but if you use GPS, audio streaming, and crank your screen to full brightness while you drive, a 5W Qi charger might not quite keep up with your deviceā€™s battery drain.

Enter Ankerā€™s PowerWave, one of the first Qi car mounts to support 7.5W wireless charging for iPhones, the maximum possible speed. It also supports 10W charging for compatible Android phones, though thatā€™s less rare. Itā€™s down to an all-time low $30 with now with promo code ANKER551.

The only catch is that youā€™ll need a Quick Charge 3.0 charger to enable the 7.5W charging speeds (par for the course for these chargers, oddly enough), but this one from RAVPower is pretty affordable, and even has a $1 coupon available.


Hold on to your butts, gamers. This deal on 32" 144hz Monoprice monitors may be a contender for the deal of the week.

Both the curved and flat screen models use AMD FreeSync technology, swivel, rotate to a vertical orientation, and are VESA-mount compatible. Each display features a maximum resolution of 2560x1440 for under $300.

This price is at least $100 off whatā€™s currently on Amazon.


NETGEAR 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Unmanaged Switch | $15 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

If your router doesnā€™t include enough ethernet ports for your liking, this 5-port gigabit switch from NETGEAR is a cheap and easy way to solve that. $15 is a match for the best price weā€™ve seen over the last year.


They arenā€™t Sonyā€™s best noise canceling Bluetooth headphonesā€”that honor goes to the $348 WH1000XM3sā€”but these wireless over-ears are still a fantastic deal for $148, or $50 less than usual (though they were down to $98 around the holidays). The WH-CH700Ns run for up to 30 hours in wireless noise canceling mode, or you can plug them in with a 3.5mm cord to extend that to 50 hours. If you travel a lot, or just work in a noisy office environment, this is a...

...

...

sound investment.


Aukey USB-C 2.5" Hard Drive/SSD Enclosure | $11 | Amazon | Promo code AUKEYB11

If you have any old hard drives or SSDs gathering dust, this $11 enclosure can turn it into a handy USB-C external drive. No tools are required: just pop in the drive, and plug it in.


TaoTronics Bluetooth Receiver/Transmitter | $23 | Amazon | Promo code 493GG6KN
Photo: Amazon

You know those fancy Bluetooth earbuds you love using so much? Surprise: they wonā€™t work with your Nintendo Switch, or the seatback TV screen on a plane, or even your TV. But for just $23 (with promo code 493GG6KN), you can plug this Bluetooth dongle into any headphone jack, and connect to it with your favorite wireless headphones for wireless listening. It even has AptX codex support for lower latency, and can transmit to two pairs of headphones simultaneously for shared listening.

It also works as a Bluetooth receiver, so you can plug it into an old stereo system or car, and broadcast music from your phone over Bluetooth to speakers that otherwise wouldnā€™t be compatible.


Katana Safety Arc: The Personal Security System | $70 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Thereā€™s more than a few dirt bags and assholes out there. And I wish youā€™ll never need this sort of thing but the Katana Safety Arc could put a stop to a potentially volatile situation.

Advertisement

This smartphone-attached ā€œpanic buttonā€ has a few alarms built-in, both audible and discreet. When triggered, itā€™ll bypass the userā€™s locked home screen to contact the Katanaā€™s response center which, in turn, can contact ā€œlocal emergency services and/or up to seven friends and family.ā€

This is the lowest price weā€™ve ever seen on Amazon. But just a heads up, youā€™ll only get 1 month of the response service for free. After that a subscription is $15 per month but thereā€™s also a $144 annual plan, which saves you $3 each month.


Anker SoundCore Liberty Air True Wireless Headphones | $64 | Amazon | Promo code SDCAIR02
Photo: Amazon

Ankerā€™s truly wireless headphones have always offered great value for the money, and now you can save for the first time on the companyā€™s newest Soundcore Liberty Airs.

First, let us acknowledge what we are all thinking: These look a lot like AirPods. What, with the thin microphone stalks and dental floss-looking charging case. But unlike AirPods, the Liberty Airs have adjustable rubber ear tips, so theyā€™ll actually seal your ears, no matter what size they are. And for just $64 (with promo code SDCAIR02), they include Bluetooth 5 for a solid connection, five hours of battery life (20 if you include the power in the charging case), and an 18 month warranty.


Anker PowerLine II 3-in-1 Cable | $11 | Amazon | Promo code ANKERKJ8

If you want the durability and lifetime warranty of Ankerā€™s PowerLine II charging cables, but you own a lot of different devices, this $11 microUSB cable (with promo code ANKERKJ8) includes Lightning and USB-C adapters attached to the end. Itā€™s a little awkward, but itā€™s nice to know youā€™ll always have the right cable handy.


Sonos Beam | $349 | Amazon
Sonos Playbar | $599 | Amazon
Sonos Sub | $599 | Amazon
Sonos Playbase | $599 | Amazon
Polk Audio MagniFi Max SR 5.1 Surround Sound Sound Bar | $399 | Amazon
VIZIO 3.1.2 Atmos Premium Home Theater Sound System | $700 | Amazon
VIZIO 5.1.4 Atmos Premium Home Theater Sound System | $900 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Itā€™s not surprising that Amazon would run a home theater audio sale with the Super Bowl now just two weeks away. But holy crap, we werenā€™t expecting so many great options.

Advertisement

Of course, we have to start with the Sonos deals. The new Beam sound bar is $50 off, while the Sonos Sub, the Playbase, and the larger Playbar sound bar are all $100 off. Even at full price, the Beam is arguably the best value in the Sonos lineup, so thatā€™s where weā€™d recommend most people start. And of course, you can also pair any Sonos Play:1s or Ones with any of these products to use as satellite speakers.

But those arenā€™t the only home theater audio deals that Amazonā€™s running. For an all-time low $399, you can enjoy 5.1 surround sound with this easy-to-set-up Polk Audio sound bar system. The subwoofer and satellite speakers connect to the sound bar wirelessly (though youā€™ll have to plug them in for power), which means you wonā€™t have to run any wires from the front of the room to the back.

Or you can go all out and upgrade to the future of audio: Dolby Atmos. Both of the Vizio systems in the sale use upward-firing drivers to bounce sound off of your ceiling, creating a truly immersive sound stage. The $700 model is a 3.1.2 system, with three forward-facing and two upward-facing drivers, and the $900 version includes two satellite speakers as well for 5.1.4 sound. Theyā€™re both $100 off, but if you ask me, the $900 model is a far better value.


LG B8 2018 OLED 55" TV | $1497 | Walmart
LG B8 2018 OLED 65" TV | $2297 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

LGā€™s 2017 OLED TVs have achieved something of a cult status thanks to their inky dark black levels and vibrant colors. Today though, weā€™ve got the best price weā€™ve ever seen on the 2018 55" model, and a solid deal on the 65" as well.

Advertisement

The picture quality should be nearly identical (which is a good thing!), but the 2018 models include LGā€™s ThinQ voice assistant and support for HFR (high frame rate video) up to 120 FPS. HFR content doesnā€™t really exist yet, but a few movies are expected to come to streaming services starting later this year, so if youā€™re planning on using the TV for several years, it might be worth it for future-proofing purposes.

Walmart has the 55" marked down to $1,497, and the 65" to $2,297. The former is a match for the best price weā€™ve seen, and the latter is the best price weā€™ve seen since October. Order now, and youā€™ll have it in time for the large, important football game!

No joke, I dove head first into a giant tub of these Cheez Balls last weekend. And this $22 12-pack of Planters Cheez Balls may find its way into my schedule, real soon.

You might not think you need a pressure washer, but after spending 10 minutes on r/pressurewashingporn, youā€™ll have your credit card out. And you can start blasting away at grime for just $57 right now.

At 1350 PSI, itā€™s not the most powerful pressure washer out there, but itā€™s a great starter washer, and should be sufficient for most household tasks. You can even save a few extra bucks by choosing in-store pickup, so get yours before the deal is blasted away.


Tacklife Orbital Sheet Sander | $21 | Amazon | Promo code CSUTXLE8
Photo: Amazon

Of all the mindless tasks that make up any DIY projectā€”turning screws, hammering nails, measuring thingsā€”sanding wood is indisputably the most unpleasant. It takes forever, you get splinters, and your arm feels like itā€™s going to fall off for days afterwards.

Advertisement

But for $21 with promo code CSUTXLE8, you can buy a power tool that will do most of the hard work for you. This variable speed sheet sander from Tacklife sands a much larger area than your hand, or say, a Dremel, and it even has a dust collector to keep your work area (and your lungs) clean. If youā€™re a home contractor at heart, youā€™ll probably want something from a known brand with a longer warranty and better support, but for occasional DIY work, this should do just fine.


iRobot Roomba 690 | $248 | Amazon

Our readers have bought thousands of entry-level Roomba 650s, but today weā€™ve spotted an all-time low price on the upgraded 690, which adds a few much-welcome features.

Advertisement

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 ā€œsmartā€ 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 wouldnā€™t wish on my worst enemy, and the ability to start it remotely means you can run the Roomba while youā€™re out of the house, and come back home to clean floors.
