Plug in all the things with this $19 tower of power. This surge protector comes with 10 outlets, four USB ports, and its own 6ft retractable power cord. Plus, it rotates for optimum space-saving.
Update: This is now back down to its Black Friday price of $58
$70 for a Logitech Harmony remote is a great deal on its face, but the real reason to buy this model is the included Harmony Hub.
The Hub allows you to use your iPhone, Android device, or even an Amazon Echo to control everything a Harmony remote can (which is basically any piece of home theater gear you can think of). So even when you inevitably lose the included remote behind the couch cushions, you’ll still have multiple ways to take control of all of your home theater gear.
Considering the hub alone sells for $77 right now, so you’re basically saving $7 here, and getting the remote for free.

We see deals on water-resistant Bluetooth speakers all the time, but not many of them are actually buoyant. Cowin’s IPX7-rated speaker can bob along with you in the pool or baththub, all while blasting your tunes from a 10W driver and displaying an LED light show on the top, and is just $30 today with code Z2DNVFUC.
If you can live without printing in color (let’s be honest, you probably can), Brother’s toner-sipping laser printers are the only printers on the market that you won’t want to punt into an active volcano, and you can get a refurb for just $70 today.
The 2360DW spits out an astounding 32 pages per minute, can print on both sides of the paper automatically, and supports AirPrint and Google Cloud Print over Wi-Fi, so you won’t have to keep it plugged into a router or computer. What more could you want?
Whether you need a small card for a dash cam, or a ton of space for Nintendo Switch games and 4K GoPro footage, this 128GB Samsung microSD card is down to $40 today on Amazon. We’ve seen it go as low as $37, but this deal is still $5 less than usual.
The original WeMo Switch was arguably the first successful, mass market smart home gadget out there, and now you can get it for $22. If you’re somehow not familiar, these let you control any device with a physical on/off switch from your phone, with a voice assistant, or even with IFTTT recipes. For example, I used this exact model last month to control my Christmas tree lights.
The recent release of Qi-compatible iPhones means that wireless charging pads are flying off the shelves, and we have an exclusive discount on Anker’s 10W model with promo code KINJA519.
iPhones can only charge at 7.5W right now, so this will max out your iOS wireless charging speed, with some extra power available for compatible Android phones. I bought it for myself late last year, and use it with my iPhone X every night. I love that the edges of the pad light up temporarily when you set your phone down, so I can be sure I placed it correctly even when I’m groggy and not wearing my glasses.
HDTV bias light strips can improve your TV’s perceived black levels and reduce eyestrain, but just as importantly, they look really cool. Just stick it to the back of your TV, plug it into your set’s USB port, and bask in the glow.
This $10, 80" strip should be long enough for most TVs 60" or below, and you can cut it down to size if it’s too big for your needs.
The government should mandate that all TVs come with at least five HDMI ports. I see no downside to this. Until I become president though, this $10 HDMI switcher will have to do. It basically turns one port into two, switches between devices at the press of a button.
Anker’s SoundBuds Slims were the single most popular product among our readers in 2017, and the red and blue-corded models are down to $19 on Amazon right now, down from their usual ~$26.
Despite their diminutive size, these wireless ‘buds pack in an impressive seven hours of battery life, and can fully recharge in about 90 minutes.
Top Home Deals
Home offices are hard to get right, especially when the last thing you want to think about is practicality. But there are pieces that don’t scream “I just want to feel like a human adult doing work and not want to scream while I work alone in a room” and Amazon has them on sale right now. Chairs of all shapes and sizes (and a couple desks) are discounted today only, so maybe take a break and look through it.
Note: Only select colors are on sale, so just a heads up.
Anker’s HomeVac Duo vacuum transforms from handheld to upright, has the impressive runtime you’d expect from the brand that makes your favorite battery packs, a washable HEPA filter, and a great warranty. That’s quite a package for $70, the best price we’ve ever seen.
The HomeVac Duo will run for 24 minutes on a charge at full power, or an hour in eco mode, which should be more than enough for most average-sized homes. The standout feature though is definitely the detachable hand vac, which lets you clean furniture, shelves, and your car with ease.
Anker’s Roav C1 dash cam has spawned a whole line of auto accessories, but now, you can get the still-great original model for just $51 on Amazon, the best price we’ve seen.
I test drove the C1 when it first came out, and you can see my full impressions here. But to give you the cliffnotes, it shoots 1080p, its space-saving design makes it essentially invisible to the driver, and it even includes Wi-Fi to transfer clips to your phone, which is hard to find in a ~$50 dash cam.
Why does RAVPower make a pocket knife? I have no idea. But as multi-tools go, it’s a pretty cool one. You get a knife, a bottle opener, a can opener, a set of pliers, and even a screwdriver with nine included interchangeable bits, all for just $16 with promo code KINJAE5L.
You’ve got two choices when it comes to checking on the progress of your dinner in the oven. You could poke at it with a kitchen thermometer until you think it’s done, or you could sit on the couch and wait for your phone to tell you when it’s ready.
The Weber iGrill 2Thermometer uses leave-in probes to monitor the progress of your meal on the grill, on the stovetop, or even in the oven, and connects to your iPhone or Android device over Bluetooth to alert you as soon as it reaches the proper temperature.
I was in the camp of people who felt like aromatherapy diffusers were glorified Glade plug-ins. And they are to some extent, but the fact you can use natural essential oils to create the scent, rather than whatever Glade uses, is a real game changer. The peppermint and eucalyptus scents can help with migraines and sinus headaches, as well as help humidify the air during these drier winter months.
Unlike the diffusers we’ve posted in the past, this $48 one (after 5% off coupon) can do a cool, color-changing light show in addition to humidifying and scenting the air. Throw in this 10 pack of essential oils for $15 and you’ll be all set.
With the way the weather has been lately, chances are you’re spending a little more time indoors. You can decrease the amount of air pollutants you’re breathing in with an air purifier.
The Levoit LV-132 features a True HEPA filter (a big deal at this price) and charcoal filters to reduce pet odors and neutralize airborne bacteria. This model normally bounces between $80 and $90, and today’s $67 deal is an all-time low.
Have you tried to buy jerky lately? It’s expensive as hell! Luckily, you can make your own at home with this $175 highly-rated Excalibur food dehydrator with 15 square feet of dehydrating surface area. Of course, it’ll also work with herbs, fruits, and vegetables as well. This typically sells for over $200, so today’s price is a steal.
Normally priced at $12, this $10 brush set includes four different brushes to scrub away gunk in a variety of bottle shapes and sizes, even a long skinny brush to clean out the straws on sports bottles. This set boasts an almost perfect 4.8-star rating and over a 1,000 reviews, so I’d make some bets they work pretty well.
Jet launched their own brand of cleaning products, sauces, coffee, paper goods, and snacks under the brand name Uniquely J. This week, you can save $3 (with the code UNIQUELYJ10) on all orders with $10 or more of Uniquely J, which is a good amount of savings on the stuff you have to buy anyway.
Folding clothes isn’t far below scrubbing toilets on my list of least favorite chores, but a laundry board can speed up the process considerably. All it takes is three steps and three seconds once you lay a garment on top, and your clothes will come out consistently and perfectly folded every time.
Phillips’ insanely popular Wake-Up Light is here to change your life. This is the best model in the lineup, and includes an FM radio and five different natural sounds to wake up to. Grab it right now on Amazon for $88 after clipping the $25 coupon, the best price we’ve ever seen.
Unlike an unsympathetic traditional alarm clock, the Philips Wake-Up Light eases you awake with a gradually-brightening light that simulates a natural sunrise, which is how humans are designed to wake up anyway. After the light gets you out of your REM cycle and ready to wake up, an audible alarm will finish the job at the time of your choosing. Plus, it also doubles as a very warm and pleasant reading light as you’re getting ready to go to sleep.
Thermos’s stainless steel can insulator uses vacuum insulation to actually provide a barrier between your beverage and the outside world. They go so far as to claim that it will keep a can cold for up to 3 hours, and even if that’s a little bit of marketing hyperbole, what could possibly be in that can that takes more than an hour to drink?
Even during the winter months, it has the added benefit of protecting your bare skin from cold, damp cans, so you Bills and Packers fans can use it while you tailgate.
Over 2,700 Amazon reviewers have given the Thermos a 4.5 star review average, and you can get one (or more!) for just $7 right now. Bottom’s up!
Functionally, it’s a motion-sensing battery powered-light like many of OxyLED’s others, but the design is 100% new. Instead of sticking the whole thing to a surface with adhesive, this two-piece setup includes a base that attaches with magnets or adhesive, and a separate light module that nests magnetically inside, allowing you to point it in any direction you want.
That means you can remove the light from the base at any time to charge it, or even to use it as a portable flashlight. Just be sure to use promo code OZ2CF6NL at checkout to save $6.
If you’re living without a decent laundry hamper like some kind of wild animal, pick up this AmazonBasics foldable one at its lowest price ever, just $9. It folds completely flat for easy storage and has metal handles, so it won’t tear even when you’re carrying around weeks’ worth of clothes.
Let me tell you from experience as a kid; getting shocked by an electrical outlet is not pleasant. So if you’re ever planning on doing any electrical work around your house, you’ll want this affordable voltage tester. Just place the tip near a wire or outlet, and it’ll beep and light up if it detects current, and even differentiate between three different voltage levels.
Oh, and it’s a flashlight too. Nice.
A good label maker is something everyone should own, and the Brother P-touch Handy Label Maker is back in stock for just $10 today, matching an all-time low. This thing can output nine fonts, over 200 symbols, and even 10 different frames on multiple sizes and finishes of label tape, so you’ll have the freedom to get creative.
Only luddites use tape measures anymore. This laser distance measurer takes instant distance readings of up to 164', and includes several built-in area calculation functions, in case you’re a little rusty on your middle school geometry.

Amazon has been throwing a lot of sports nutrition Gold Boxes our way for the last week or so, and this one is more of the same (protein powder, shakes, etc), but with the addition of pre-workout and joint support, which we’ve haven’t seen in the other Gold Boxes. Most of these products also have Subscribe & Save options which will save you another 5%, and you can cancel at any time if you don’t want multiple shipments (even immediately).
Let’s say you’ve already upgraded to a good toothbrush; what’s the next step for cleaner teeth? Judging by the excellent user reviews and thousands of readers’ purchases, these Crest Whitestrips are a great place to start. The whole line of whitening treatments are on sale today, just remember the discounted price won’t show up until checkout.
Privé Revaux turned the sunglass industry on its head this year with a wide variety of attractive frames for just $30 each, but you can get them for even less today with this 25% off deal.
Over on Amazon, you can also browse the entire collection, and get any pair you want for just $23 with promo code PRIVER25. That includes ever popular aviator-styles like “The Commando” and “The Dealer.”
if you want to keep track of your new year’s weight loss resolutions, Anker’s ultra-popular Bluetooth smart scale is back on sale today.
In addition to functioning as a normal digital bathroom scale, the Eufy BodySense can measure metrics such as body fat percentage and body water, and sync all of that data over Bluetooth to your iOS or Android smartphone. You can see my impressions here, but it’s the most seamless and reliable smart scale I’ve ever personally used, and a great deal at $36, or about $14 less than usual.

If you’re about to head back to school for the spring semester, Amazon’s making your textbooks slightly less egregiously expensive.
