TaoTronics Active Noise Cancelling Over-Ear Headphones | $40 | Amazon | Promo code KINJAV02
TaoTronics Active Noise Cancelling Neckband Headphones | $33 | Amazon | Promo code KINJA297

You don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars to enjoy the benefits of noise canceling headphones: These TaoTronics noise canceling over-ears are down to just $40 today with promo code KINJAV02.


I’ve actually tried these, and while the ANC isn’t as impressive as what you’d get from Sony or Bose, it definitely works, especially against consistent noises like fans or airplane engines. They’re also extremely comfortable, and fold up for easy storage. $40 is a steal, is what I’m saying.

I haven’t tried these neckband ANC headphones, but they’re also available for $33 with promo code KINJA297.

And if you want to go really old school, here’s a set of ANC wired earbuds (yes, people still make those) for $23 with promo code KINJAL69.

SanDisk 1TB Ultra SSD | $144 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Nope, it’s not a mistake: This is a 1TB SSD for $144, which is about as cheap as we’ve ever seen on an SSD with that much space, especially from a name brand like SanDisk. If you still have a PC lying around with a spinning hard drive, do yourself a favor and pick this up, or turn it into a DIY external SSD on the cheap.

Silicon Power 128GB MicroSD Card | $18 | Amazon

Need more storage space for your action cam, dash cam, tablet, or Nintendo Switch? This 128GB card from Silicon Power is incredibly affordable right now at just $18, which is the best price we’ve ever seen on that capacity from a reliable manufacturer.

20% Off Sitewide | VapeWorld | Promo code SPOOKY20

If you like to vape and want to upgrade your equipment, VapeWorld is taking 20% off sitewide this week with promo code SPOOKY20. As an authorized seller of Pax Labs, Grenco G Pens, Kandypens, and AirVapes, just for starters, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for.


This deal ends on Friday, so place your order before the promo code goes up in a puff of smoke.

Hurricane Canless Air System | $89 | MassDrop
Graphic: MassDrop

If you have a recent Apple keyboard, or really any electronics that gather dust, you’re probably familiar with canned air, and how surprisingly expensive it can be. It turns out, there’s a better way.


The Hurricane canless air system is basically a tiny air compressor that can generate 220 mph gusts, and yes, it’s rechargeable. Each charge gets you a full 12 minutes of air, and the battery should last for at least 500 charges. That means it’ll pay for itself over time, and you’ll generate a lot less waste.

Usually priced around $110, MassDrop will sell you a kit for $89, for a limited time.

Canon imageCLASS LBP6230dw Wireless Laser Printer | $40 | Amazon | Clip the $30 coupon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Life’s too short for slow, unreliable, and expensive-to-maintain inkjet printers. Monochrome laser printers are fast, their toner is cheap, and this Canon model’s only $40 after clipping the $30 coupon. We normally recommend Brother printers, but this is an inanely good deal, especially considering it has Wi-Fi built in.

HyperX Alloy FPS Pro | $50 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

With loud, clicky blue switches, this HyperX mechanical keyboard might not make you popular in the office, but it’ll feel like a dream to type on. For an all-time low $50, it also eschews the number pad for a more compact design. If you haven’t made the switch to a mechanical keyboard yet, this is a great brand at a bargain bin price.

Jackery Portable Power Station | $240 | Amazon | Promo code TBECALES
Photo: Amazon

It should be pretty clear from the picture, but this isn’t your average, pocket-sized USB battery pack. No, this lithium-ion power station includes USB ports, plus an AC and a DC outlet, and can charge laptops, drone batteries, medical devices, mini fridges, and even small TVs for hours on end. When it’s time to recharge, you can hook up some solar panels (not included), or plug it into any wall or car outlet.


At 300W of maximum output (200W running power, 300W surge), it’s not as powerful as even a small gas generator, but it operates silently, and can be used for a lot of the same things. Get it for $240 today with promo code TBECALES.

Vizio 32" 5.1 Channel Sound Bar System | $148 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Vizio’s 5.1 channel sound bars changed the game by bringing surround sound to people who didn’t want to buy a receiver or run a ton of wires around their living room, and now, you can get your own setup for just $148.

That includes a 32" sound bar with your three front channels, a wireless subwoofer that you put in the back of the room, and two wired satellite speakers that plug into the subwoofer, and serve as your rear channels. I’ve had a very similar setup from Vizio for years, and absolutely love that I can just plug it straight into my TV, with no fuss.

Refurb Sonos Playbar | $549 | Sonos

Update: Back in stock! The last two times we’ve seen this, it’s sold out within hours.


While we see deals on Sonos’s smaller speakers from time to time, the room-filling Playbar hardly ever goes on sale. While supplies last though (which, if history is any guide, will not be for long), Sonos has refurbs in stock for $549, or $150 less than buying it new.

Like all Sonos refurbs, the Playbar includes the company’s standard 45 day return policy and a full one year warranty.

4-Outlet/4-USB Power Strip | $12 | Amazon | Promo code 6YI3ALOA

Half of your electronics charge over USB these days, so it makes sense to buy power strips that include both AC outlets and USB ports. For just $12 with promo code 6YI3ALOA, this Aukey power strip includes four of each.

Google Wifi is one of the highest profile competitors in the exploding mesh router market, and our readers’ favorite mesh system. If you have a big house, and could make use of a three-router array, Amazon and Walmart are marking down the system to just $250, within $1 of the best price they’ve ever listed.

Samsung U3 32GB MicroSD Card | $7 | Amazon
Samsung U3 64GB MicroSD Card | $14 | Amazon
Samsung U3 128GB MicroSD Card | $25 | Amazon
Samsung U3 256GB MicroSD Card | $60 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Samsung’s U3-rated microSD cards are some of the fastest and most popular options out there—I have the 128GB model in my own Nintendo Switch—and all four sizes are down to all-time low prices today on Amazon.


The 32GB card has been $7 for a few weeks, but the 64GB just dropped from $15 to $14, the 128GB went from $30 to $25, and the 256GB dropped from $70 to $60.

If you need extra space for your action cam, smartphone, tablet, Switch, or anything else, these are extremely fast cards, and extremely good deals.

Anker PowerLine 6' Lightning Cable | $8 | Amazon | White model only
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Anker’s original PowerLine Lightning cables were our readers’ favorites, and while they’ve been iterated on in the years since, the originals remain far nicer and stronger than Apple’s own cables. For a limited time, you can grab a 6' cable in white for just $8, or about $3 less than usual.

Preorder Anker Nebula Capsule II | Kickstarter
Graphic: Kickstarter

Anker’s soda can-sized Capsule portable projector was a crowdfunding hit last year, and it really did deliver on its promise. But there were a few obvious areas for improvement, and Anker tackled all of the big ones with the brand new Capsule II, now up for preorder on Kickstarter.


So what’s new?

1) Resolution: The original Capsule’s standard definition 480p has been bumped to 720p, so your videos should look a lot crisper. Easy win.


2) Brightness: The first Capsule’s 100 ANSI lumen bulb was fine in a dark room, but the Capsule II’s is twice as bright, which means you’ll be able to get a usable picture in more lighting conditions, and at larger screen sizes. I saw it firsthand in a fairly well-lit event space, and while not as bright as a TV screen or a full-sized projector, it was definitely bright enough to watch a movie.

3) Software: The original Capsule had a version of Android installed, but it was pretty janky, and didn’t have access to Google Play. This time around, the Capsule II ships with Android TV 9.0 onboard, with access to the vast Google Play app store, which means you won’t have to rely on your phone for casting content.

There are a few other minor differences of note, including the inclusion of USB-C Power Delivery for fast charging, an improved speaker, and autofocus. It is a bit bigger than the Capsule (which will remain on sale for the time being); Anker calls it “pint sized,” rather than soda can-sized, which was pretty cheeky of them. Whatever beverage you compare it to though, it’s still very small for a projector.


Kickstarter backers can preorder the Capsule II right now for $399. Anker’s touting a $599 MSRP for the Capsule II, and while there will surely be discounts after it comes out, Anker’s previous crowdfunding projects have, in hindsight, legitimately offered prices to backers that weren’t matched on Amazon for many months after release, if ever.

If you ever bought a Capsule I prior to this Kickstarter going live, you’re also eligible for a $100 rebate when you preorder the Capsule II. Check out the bottom of the campaign page for details.

While it doesn’t have the best picture quality out there, it’s tough to complain about a 65" 4K TV for $550, a 55" for $320, or a 49" model for $250. Both include HDR, though with a distinct lack of specs on the page, I’m going to assume that’s not Dolby Vision. And while they doesn’t have apps onboard—pretty typical at this price level—they do have Chromecast built in, so you can stream video easily from your phone, which is very rare at these price points.

Private Internet Access Exclusive Deals

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.


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.


This 4V Black & Decker electric screwdriver is very much a screwdriver, not a drill, but it’s tiny and rechargeable, and certainly has its uses. It even has a magnet on top to hold extra screws. It’s priced at $25 on Amazon right now by itself, but today only, you can get it for $22, bundled with a $7 bit set thrown in for free.

Chateau Home Gold Box | Amazon

As the temperature drops, it gets harder and harder to get out of bed, and Amazon is about to make it even tougher with this this sheet sale. Choose from regular cotton, pima cotton, even Egyptian cotton, with a queen set for as low as $41. If you’ve been eyeing a new set of sheets, this is the sale for you.

Preorder NapUp FLY | Kickstarter
Graphic: Kickstarter

Kickstarter has become a design playground for travel pillows, and if the TRTL+ didn’t look like the right pillow for you, NapUp FLY offers a totally different approach.

NapUp FLY uses a set of adjustable straps to attach the pillow to your headrest, giving you extra padding, and keeping the pillow firmly in place. Once you slap the velcro eye mask into place, your head is effectively anchored to your seat, so you’ll never bob off to the side and drool on a stranger’s shoulder. I found the prototype they sent me to be very comfortable, and I could definitely imagine falling asleep in it on a long flight, as cumbersome as the setup process may be.


For $10 more, you can upgrade to a version with built-in headphone speakers to pump white noise or podcasts into your ears. In my sample, these were extremely quiet, and it’s hard to imagine using them for anything other than white noise on a loud plane, but it would still be nice to not have to wear headphones to bed.

The campaign is already almost fully funded, and you stand to save quite a bit by preordering. Unfortunately, they’re not estimated to ship until February, so you’ll need another solution for your holiday flights.

Weber Original Kettle Premium Charcoal Grill | $127 | Amazon
Graphic: Erica Offutt

Weber’s Kettle charcoal grill is the grill every backyard needs, and Amazon’s running a $23 discount on it today. Discounts of any size on this grill are extremely rare, so today’s the day to grab this.

You can use this for grilling, obviously, but it’s also a surprisingly capable smoker. Just look at the smoke ring on these ribs that my friend made on his Kettle. Now, look at this brisket he smoked. Okay, now grab a wad of napkins, clean all the drool off your face, and go buy this thing.

Lowe’s Black Friday Deals
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Welp, it’s not even November yet, but Lowe’s has kicked off some of its Black Friday deals early. Inside, you’ll find a selection of appliances, tools, holiday decorations, and a lot more on sale. Some of the deals (mostly appliances) are listed as running through 11/29—I believe those are the real Black Friday deals—and some only go through 11/14, which I think could get cheaper later.

Dyson V10 Motorhead | $425 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

It’s 2018, and your vacuum shouldn’t have a cord anymore. Dyson’s cordless V-series stick vacs have long been go-to cordless options, but the powerful new V10 is arguably the first that can truly, completely replace a corded vacuum, at least for smaller homes.

We haven’t really seen any discounts on the V10 since its release in March, but Amazon’s now offering the entry-level Motorhead configuration for an all-time low $385, down from the original $500 selling price. This model has a smaller bin and fewer accessories than the Animal and Absolute versions, but it uses the same powerful motor.

Gerber Suspension NXT Multi-Plier | $24 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

Gerber’s suspension multi-plier features 12 tools in one package, meaning you’re spending just $2 per function today. The pliers are the main attraction, but inside the handles, you’ll find knives, a wire stripper, screwdrivers, an awl, a nail file, a ruler, and more.

Everyone knows that the day after Halloween is the best time of the year to save on candy, but you can get a head start today on Jet, which is selling 18 <Chris Nolan brraaaaaam noise> FULL SIZED candy bars for just $7. You get six Hershey’s bars, six Reese’s, and six Kit-Kats, and since they won’t arrive until after Halloween, you’re under no obligation to give them away.

String Lights | 20% Off | Urban Outfitters
Image: Urban Outfitters

String lights: They’re not just for dorms. Nowadays, hanging up these tiny bulbs are less Christmas year round, more legitimate home decor (or patio decor, or wedding decor) strategy. They’re also way less boring than they used to be; simple light bulbs are being replaced with everything from clips for hanging photos from, to tiny peaches. Now, just in time for the coziest season, Urban Outfitters is taking 20% off all their string lights, so you can up your ambient lighting game ASAP.

Anker Bolder LC40 LED Flashlight | Amazon | Promo Code ANKER421
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

The Anker Bolder LC40 LED Flashlight might be small enough to fit in your pocket, but it packs a punch when it comes to illuminating your path. With 400 lumens of brightness, not to mention its anti-slip finish, hand strap, and water-resistant, durable aluminum body, darkness doesn’t stand a chance. Use promo code ANKER421 to light up your life with this torch for just $8.

Eufy SpaceView Baby Monitor | $120 | Amazon | Promo code EUFYMM88

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 $120 with promo code EUFYMM88 (down from the usual $170).


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.

KitchenAid Classic Series 4.5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer | $189 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

It’ll really come in handy for holiday baking, and with accessories like a food grinder, a spiralizer, and a pasta roller, you can use it for tons of different cooking tasks.

If you haven’t used one before, you should now that nothing will stick to these. They’re made of silicone, flexible, and fit onto standard-sized baking sheets, making clean up a breeze. Plus, since you won’t be baking nonstick spray into your cookie sheets, they’ll look like new for longer.

In addition to being bestsellers, these mats boast a near-perfect 4.7-star rating with over 2,600 reviews.

475 Bonus Stars With 3x $20 Chase Pay Reloads | Starbucks App

If you ever go to Starbucks, and you have a Chase credit card, here’s a no-brainer deal for you this evening. If you load $60 onto your Starbucks app (in three $20 installments), you can get 475 stars, nearly enough for four free drinks or food items of your choice.

Here’s what you have to do.

  1. Sign up for Chase Pay, if you haven’t already. Set your default card as one that will earn you extra points for dining, or better yet, the Chase Freedom (more on that later).
  2. Link your Chase Pay account to your Starbucks app.
  3. Load $20 onto your Starbucks account using Chase Pay three separate times. You’ll earn 125 stars the first time, 150 the second, and 200 on the third. I waited for my stars to post each time to be safe (it took about 15 minutes each time), but it will probably work if you do all three in quick succession.

That’s it! Make it a venti, add all of the extra shots your bloodstream can handle; your drinks are free no matter what $12 abomination you create. Just remember to tip your barista. Promotion valid through 12/12/2018.


Extra Credit: Chase Pay is one of the Chase Freedom’s 5x bonus categories this quarter, so if you have that card, be sure to set it as your default to get a cool 300 points out of this promotion.

20% off Soylent | Amazon | Must use Subscribe & Save

Grabbing breakfast or lunch with coworkers can be a great way to break up the day, but more often than not you’ll just wallow in your own indecision before ordering a bad $12 sandwich.


Break the cycle with Soylent, a nutritionally complete meal replacement shake that now comes in a variety of flavors (no, green is not one of them). The 20% discount will apply to your first Subscribe & Save shipment, which you can always cancel after you get your first box.

Prices vary by flavor, but you can get 12 bottles of most flavors for $31 with this deal, or a 2.3 pound tub of powdered Soylent for just $27.

Eddie Bauer Fairisle Sherpa Reversible Throw | Midnight Color Only | $19 | Amazon

When the weather outside is frightful, all you need is a fireplace and a very cozy blanket. (That’s how the song goes, right?) Prepare to hibernate when those colder temperatures roll in with this objectively snuggly Eddie Bauer Fairisle Sherpa Throw in Midnight, now available on Amazon for $19.


The blanket’s pattern will add a seasonably appropriate pop of color to any living room, and the whole 50 x 70 inches of fabric is definitely big enough to envelop your entire body comfortably. It’s also reversible; the other side is a super soft sherpa material. Heads up, if you’re looking for me over the next few months, I’m on my couch hiding under this throw until spring.

Stanley 170 Piece Mixed Tool Set | $63 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Our general rule of thumb for mechanics tool sets is that anything under $.50 per piece is usually a good deal. This set from Stanley easily hits that threshold at $63, even though it includes some stuff you wouldn’t normally find in a mechanics set, like a tape measure and some pliers. Just note that this price is only available for Prime members.

Three Bottles of Wine + Free Shipping | $15 | Firstleaf | Promo code Kinja. New members only

Firstleaf is an online wine club that learns your preferences, offers tons of options, and most importantly, saves you money compared to buying from the store. It’s a solid deal any time, but it’s even better for our readers today.


Every new Firstleaf member gets an introductory delivery with three bottles of wine for just $15, plus $5 shipping. Considering that you aren’t locked in and can cancel any time, that’s a bargain. But it gets even better for our readers, as promo code Kinja will waive the $5 shipping charge, for a limited time. That’s three bottles of wine (all of mine had MSRPs over $20) for just $5 each shipped, with no commitment.

You can read more about the service in my review, but if you choose to remain a member (I did), every box thereafter includes six bottles for $80, plus $10 shipping.

Each set of frames is named after a location, though I suspect the Cali aviators will be the top sellers.


TriggerPoint Roller Gold Box | Amazon

TriggerPoint’s foam rollers are the most popular on the market, and Amazon’s rolling out deals on a bunch of them, today only. They hurt like hell to use, but you feel so much better when you’re done. Both ground rollers and handheld models are included in the sale, but these prices are only available today, or until sold out.
