As far as home improvement projects go, it’s tough to beat the effort-and-cost-to-cool-factor ratio of installing power receptacles with built-in USB charging ports. Why plug in a big ugly USB wall charger if you don’t have to?

TOPGREENER has been Amazon’s top seller of these types of receptacles for years, but we’ve never seen them this cheap before. Get two receptacles for $20, while they last.

- Slim design that only blocks one outlet

Brother HL-L2315DW Laser Printer | $79 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

I know you’ve got some printer PTSD. You’ve probably bought several throughout your life that did nothing but make you angry and miserable, up to the point that when it finally came time to buy an overpriced replacement ink cartridge, you just threw the whole thing out to the curb.

But friends, it doesn’t have to be this way. You can have a healthy relationship with your printer. All you have to do is buy a Brother laser printer. It’s monochrome, so you can’t use it to print photos, but otherwise, it’s basically perfect.

It’s fast. 24 pages per minute fast.

It’s wireless. And it even includes AirPrint and Google Cloud print for your mobile devices.

It’s reliable. There are no carriage jams, because there’s no carriage.

It prints on both sides, without doing that thing where you scramble to put the paper back into the tray and inevitably screw up and put it in upside down.

It’s affordable. And replacement toner is cheaper than ink too, and never dries out if you don’t use it for a long time.

So do yourself a favor. Take that inkjet sadness box to Goodwill, and order this Brother printer for $79 today.


elago Apple Watch Game Boy Charging Dock | $12 | Amazon

Does a Game Boy-shaped Apple Watch charging dock make any sense whatsoever? No. Do I care? Sorry, I couldn’t hear the question over the Tetris theme song. Get it for $12, down from the usual $15.

briteNway LED Underdash Lights | $24 | DailySteals and Amazon | Use code KJDASH
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

The best part about the Fast and the Furious franchise (or at least the 20 or so minutes I saw of the first one) was how absolutely tricked out the cars were. For just $24, your car, too, can glow just like Vin Diesel’s ride (but not the scary one? I think it was haunted by his dad or something), thanks to the briteNway LED underdash lights.

I think we as a society, thanks to an incredibly successful anti-smoking lobby, can finally move past the use of the cigarette lighter socket’s original purpose and retrofit it to house Alexa or, in this case, power RGB lighting.

This particular unit includes 4 12" LED strip lights, a remote, a control box and charger. You can pick it up for $24 on Amazon, or use the promo code KJDASH on Daily Steals, to get it for about the same price.


Shark ION F80 Cordless Vacuum | $214 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

I know two things about vacuuming:

1) You should own a robotic vacuum

2) The times that you have to vacuum by hand are significantly less annoying when you have a cordless vacuum.

Advertisement

Shark’s been coming after Dyson with its highly rated ION vacuums, and you can grab the F80 model for an all-time low $214 today on Amazon. The F80 can run for up to 80 minutes with its two included battery packs, and you can easily convert it into a hand vacuum, or even bend the tube in the middle to more easily reach under furniture. The powered cleaning head itself features what Shark calls DuoClean, which basically means it has two brush heads running at once; one that’s designed for dust and dirt, and another that works better on larger debris.

This model frequently sells in the $350-$400 range, and it’s never been cheaper than it is today, so lock in your order before this Gold Box gets cleaned out.


Garage Storage & Sit Stand Solutions Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Upgrade your entire work space with today’s FlexiSpot/FlexiMounts Gold Box. Everything you need to increase efficiency is here, from standing desks, to monitor mounts, storage racks, and sit-stand desks.

These discounts will only last until the end of the day, or until sold out. Some are already in limited supply, so be sure to check the main deal page to see all of your options.


Vahdam Tea and Superfood Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Amazon’s latest Gold Box is full of things to make you feel good about yourself, notably various teas, matchas, tumerics, and combinations thereof from Vahdam. It’s all got great reviews, and it’s all under $20. But like all Gold Box deals, these prices go back up at the end of the day, so don’t let it steep too long.


Anker Roav Viva | $28 | Amazon | Clip the $2 coupon and use code ROAVKJF4

Love Alexa, and wish you could take her with you on your commute? Anker’s running the best deal ever on their hands-free, Alexa-enabled car charger today after you clip the $2 coupon and add exclusive promo code ROAVKJF4.

You can check out my full impressions here, bu the Roav VIVA from Anker does an admirable job of providing hands-free Alexa access while you’re driving, including turn-by-turn directions, your daily briefing, and even third party Alexa apps like Jeopardy. As befitting an Anker product, it’s also a dual port car charger, albeit an awkwardly designed one.


Smart Home Special Buy of the Day | Home Depot
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If your home isn’t as brainy as you’d like it to be, Home Depot’s Special Buy of the Day today is full of smart home gear to automate your daily drudgery. Inside, you’ll find smart locks, smart thermostats (mostly limited to 2-packs, annoyingly), security cameras, smart light switches, and more. Just remember that these prices are only available today, so don’t wait for the deal to reboot.


AmazonBasics 25' String Lights | $12 | Amazon

Just in time for spring, Amazon now makes its own outdoor string lights, and you can get a 25' strand for the best price ever.

Each strand is 25' long, weatherproof, and holds 25 incandescent bulbs. Plus, the cords are rated for enough power to chain three of them together into 75’ mega-strand that could light up your entire backyard.


Wayfair Way Day Sale
Graphic: Wayfair

Following in Amazon’s grand tradition of taking an arbitrary day on the calendar and turning it into a sales holiday, Wayfair just kicked off Way Day, with 36 hours of markdowns on thousands of pieces of furniture and home goods. Rugs, chairs, sofas, dining sets, and more are included, in every conceivable style, with free two day shipping on all orders.

You’ll also want to keep checking back throughout the sale, as many deals are only available on a rotating basis, with new markdowns available every six hours. There’s a lot to sort through here, so if you see any gems, be sure to drop them in the comments.


Tacklife Universal Socket Set | $8 | Amazon | Promo code G48YC76N

While its grip might not be quite as secure as a perfectly-sized socket, this Tacklife universal socket can get a good-enough hold on almost any bolt, not to mention oddly-shaped things like hooks, without taking up a ton of space in your tool box. Get it for just $8 with promo code G48YC76N.


Otter Pops Tropical, 100-count | $11 | Amazon

It is even summer if you’re not eating copious amounts of popsicles? Nope, it’s not, so that’s why you should take advantage of this deal on everyone’s favorite frozen treat, Otter Pops, now down to their lowest price. This tropical flavor pack will be particularly refreshing as the weather warms up, so pop this 100-count box of pops in the freezer and stay cool while you wait for the temperature to heat up.

Graphic: Shep McAllister

Buying a belt is where a lot of guys tend to uh, tighten their belts, and buy whatever’s cheapest, but a high quality belt is something that’ll last you for decades, and we’ve got an exclusive deal on a few great ones today.

Vintage Bison has been turning out belts from high-end bison leather for over 50 years from the same factory in Corona, CA, and they all come with a lifetime guarantee if something ever goes wrong.

It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-In Plus Keratin, 2-pock | $30 | HauteLook
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Normally, a product whose name is literally “It’s a 10" and contains the word “Miracle” would make me roll my eyes, but, uh, this stuff really is 10/10 and I would classify it as miracle-induing. It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-In Plus Keratin will make your hair super shiny and strong, and today a two-pack of these cult-favorite sprays is just $30, which is a good deal considering just one of this little 4-ounce bottles usually costs at least $20. Simply spray this magical concoction all over damp hair, comb it through, and prepare for hair miracles to happen once everything dries. Just be sure to stock up before this product sells out.


Up to 50% Off Past Season Products | Patagonia
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Spring is finally here! And Patagonia has vests, puffers, pullovers, and zip-ups galore, all of which are great for wearing alone on warmer days or all at once when it’s an arctic tundra outside. Right now, the the anti-Silicon Valley folks are majorly marking down their Web Specials section for a limited time with up to 50% off their past season products.

So it would behoove you to pile everything you can into your cart ASAP, so you can pile everything onto yourself during the remaining cold months ahead.


Friends and Family Sale | Journelle | Promo code FNF2019
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

I don’t think anyone really looks forward to lingerie shopping, but at Journelle — a brand known for being well made, size inclusive, and actually attractive — it’s the whole process is shockingly bearable. And right now is a great time to hit up Journelle, since everything is 25% off thanks to their Friends & Family Sale.

If you want to whack another prestige series off your to-watch list, the complete Sopranos Blu-ray is down to an all-time low $50 on Amazon right now. That comes out to less than $.60 per episode, and you also get digital copies for free. Grab this deal before it gets whacked.

15% Off Any Set | Square Off | Promo code KINJADEALS15
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Playing chess online is fine, but it can’t compare to a game on a real board. And neither of those things can stand against Square Off’s smart chess board, where the pieces move all on their own. This app-connected, rechargeable smart chess board is powered by advanced robotics, allowing you to play against an opponent anywhere in the world via a Chess.com integration or the board’s own AI, and with a rosewood finish, it doesn’t look half bad either.

And now, thanks to an exclusive deal, you can save 15% on Square Off’s Kingdom Set or the extra souped-up Grand Kingdom Set. Just use promo code KINJADEALS15 at checkmate — I mean, checkout.


If you didn’t buy enough years for $40 back on Black Friday, today’s $43 deal for PlayStation Plus is about the best you can expect outside of the holiday shopping season. If you own a PlayStation 4, or are planning to buy one soon, the only question is how many you should buy, not whether you should buy it.


Bayonetta + Bayonetta 2 [Switch] | $49 | Amazon

Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 are available for Nintendo Switch, where they always belonged, and you can get a copy of both for $49 today, down from the usual $60. That’s not a huge discount, but it rarely goes on sale at all. Just note that while Bayonetta 2 is on the physical game card you’re buying, the first game is a digital download.


Civilization VI [Switch] | $40 | Amazon
Screenshot: Amazon

Civilization VI is probably best enjoyed on a PC, or even a large iPad, but if the Switch is your gaming device of choice, you can grab its Civ port for $40 today, down from $60. Just place your order before Gandhi nukes the deal.


Toy Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Today, Amazon decided to dump its toy box out and whatever fell out got a discount. But I’m not complaining, since we’re getting cheaper dinosaurs, a Megazord, sexy Deadpool, sexy beast 90's Chris Jericho and a dump truck all in the same sale.

Funko collectors have a few options here, including characters from IT, two kinds of Groot, and a golden Black Widow.

Just a heads up though, this is a Gold Box, which means these discounts will only last until the end of the day, or until sold out. So pick up your toys and head to the checkout.

Deals You May Have Missed

Corsair MM300 Extra Long Gaming Mouse Pad | $15 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Many of you won’t bat an eye in spending $50+ on a good gaming mouse, but don’t neglect the mouse pad! This extra long model from Corsair is available for $15 today, about $5 to $15 less than usual.


Nintendo Switch Bundle (Console, Game, Pins and backpack) | $330| Walmart
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Walmart’s letting you build your own Nintendo Switch bundle for just $330. Here’s what you’ll get:

  • a console, either neon blue/red or gray Joy-Cons
  • a game, pick from Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey, Super Mario Party, Splatoon 2, or The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  • an Ematic Backpack
  • and some sweet pins, either in Mario or Mario Kart flavors.

If you’ve been putting off buying a Switch... well, dude. I mean, come on. Last month’s bundle cost $10 less, were exclusively Mario games (no Splatoon or Zelda) and didn’t give you the option on pins and had a small case instead of a backpack. So, overall, I think this is a much better bundle deal.


Super Smash Bros. Ultimate | $50 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

Just this weekend, a GameStop employee told me that triple-A titles for the Switch like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate never, ever go on sale. Well, hell just froze over, because right now you can get this fan favorite for just $50, the best straight-up discount we’ve seen on this title.

2-Pack Anker Soundcore Flare Speakers | $60 | Amazon | Promo code KINJAB3161
Graphic: Shep McAllister

This 2-pack of Anker Soundcore Flare speakers is down to it’s lowest price ever at just $60 with exclusive promo code KINJAB3161 (and the $70 list price was actually a terrific deal on its own). They feature 360 degree audio, IP67 water resistance, and even a beat-driven ring of LED lights along the bottom, so you can really get the party going. Sounds like a great deal if you ask me.


Refurb Apple Watch Series 4 44mm (Silver/White) | $330 | Walmart
Photo: Gizmodo

The Apple Watch Series 4 is kind of a marvel, at least compared to the Series 1 model currently on my own wrist, so I’m awfully tempted by this refurb sale on the larger, 44mm model, the best discount we’ve seen.

$330 is a $99 discount from the usual $429, and the deal is only available on one size, in two colors, with no cellular option available. But if you’ve been trying to stop yourself from buying one since you first saw it in the Apple Store (guilty), this deal might just be tempting enough for you.


If you like the idea of keeping your credit cards and phone attached at the hip, but don’t want to saddle your beautiful phone with a bulky case, this $7 CardNinja can attach right onto the back with easily-removable 3M adhesive. Once it’s attached, the elastic pouch allows it to store up to 8 cards, plus some cash, meaning you really can ditch your wallet.


20% Off AmazonBasics AV Essentials | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

It’s a law of nature that whatever AV cable you need at any given time to set up a home theater, you inexplicably won’t have it. Unless, of course, you stock up on essentials from this AmazonBasics sale.

HDMI cables, speaker cables, subwoofer cables, and even a UPS power supply that can protect your equipment and even keep it running for a short time in a power outage are all 20% off. Fight the laws of nature, this is one battle you can win.
