Eero basically invented the mesh router market, and their new wireless system is a marked improvement from the already impressive original.
Amazon’s currently offering the Eero 3-pack (one base station and two beacons) for $300. That’s a big chunk of change, but it’s $50 less than usual, and within a few bucks of an all-time low price. The Eero base station is basically a small but powerful Wi-Fi router, while the beacons plug straight into the wall and create a strong mesh Wi-Fi signal throughout your entire house. They also double as night lights, if you weren’t already sold on them.
We’ve seen our fair share of USB power receptacle deals, but this $12 model from iClever is one of the most affordable options yet. Half the things you plug in these days probably plug into USB, so it just makes a ton of sense to install these.
The PowerCore II Slim appears to be the first PowerCore battery pack to include Anker’s new chipset, which delivers the fastest possible charging speeds to every USB device you own, including Quick Charge 3.0. That said, you’ll notice it’s not actually a Qualcomm-certified Quick Charge 3.0 product; it just replicates the tech on Anker’s own chip. That means less internal circuitry, and more room for battery, resulting in one of the thinnest 10,000mAh battery packs ever made.
iClever’s new folding Bluetooth keyboard is the only mobile keyboard I’ve ever actually enjoyed using, and a great investment for anyone that needs to work on an airplane, or just wants to get some typing done at the coffee shop without lugging around a laptop.
It’s a bargain at its usual $30, but for a limited time, promo code GSSGDO4O will knock that down to $24.
Whether you like to sing along to music in the shower, or just need to catch up on your podcast backlog, it’s worth owning a water-resistant Bluetooth speaker that you can take into the tub, not to mention the beach or the pool, once this winter hell is behind us. For $12, why not?
While supplies last on Amazon (which probably won’t be long), $48 gets you a refurbished T-Mobile AC1900 router, which is actually just a rebranded version of the $136 ASUS RT-AC68U, which is our readers’ favorite router.
The T-Mobile version has some T-Mobile branding, and uses custom firmware that claims to be optimized for Wi-Fi calling, but under the hood, it’s just a standard (and very popular) Wi-Fi router. You can even flash the firmware and install the original ASUS version, or a third party solution, if you wanted to put in the work. Just check out the customer reviews for ideas.
The Logitech Harmony Hub is one of the best Alexa-compatible accessories out there, and you can get it bundled with a cheap Echo Dot right now.
If you aren’t familiar, the Harmony Hub is a little puck that blasts out RF signals like a TV remote to control all of your devices (Logitech’s database has nearly 300,000; it’s pretty comprehensive). Normally, this would work with a Harmony remote to control devices that are hidden behind cabinet doors, but it’ll also work with just your voice if you own an Alexa device.
So, for example, you could say “Alexa, turn on the TV” to turn on your TV, change to the correct input, turn on your cable box, or whatever else you programmed it to do. The same holds true for your smartphone; just open the Harmony app, and you’ll have full control over your entire home theater.
The Harmony Hub costs about $75 on Amazon (though it’s sometimes bundled with a barebones remote for about $70), but right now, you can get an Echo Dot bundled in for just $15 more.
Anker’s PowerPort line of multi-port USB chargers are our readers’ favorites, and this model is one of the few that includes USB-C Power Delivery, which outputs up to 30W to power devices like the new MacBooks, or even a Nintendo Switch. Save a whopping $15 today with promo code ANKER517.
You still get an ergonomic design, great battery life, and a mouse sensor that works on any surface, including glass. But the 2S increases resolution from 1,000 DPI to 4,000, and introduces Logitech’s flow software, which lets you switch between computers on the fly, and even drag or copy files or your clipboard from machine to machine.
Amazon’s marked the 2S down to $80 today, a $20 discount, and the best deal we’ve seen so far.
Smart plugs are the gateway drug to home automation, and TP-Link’s model with energy monitoring is down to $40 for a 2-pack right now. These things add smartphone and Alexa control to any power outlet, and unlike some less expensive models, it’ll also tell you how much electricity is running through it so you can identify what’s running up your power bill.
It’s 2018 now, and all surge protectors should have USB ports from this point forward.
It’s not hard to find good deals on VPN subscriptions, but our readers’ favorite service, Private Internet Access, is notable for hardly ever running sales. This is the holiday shopping season though, so for a limited time, you can sign up for two years of the service for just $60, down from its usual $70. That’s just $2.50 per month to protect your browsing data, get around video geoblocks, circumvent proxy filters, and more.
You may not think you need one of these portable jump starters, and at this very moment, you probably don’t. But there will come a time where you’re late for an appointment or stuck in the middle of nowhere, and waiting around for a good samaritan to come jump your battery just isn’t a viable option.
This model from iClever puts out a whopping 600A, which is far more than most similar products, and enough to start just about any car.

Amazon makes its own luggage now, because Amazon makes everything, and you can get a complete three-piece hardside spinner set for just $170 right now, a match for an all-time low. That gets you a 20" carry-on, plus 24" and 28" checked bags, all of which include multiple zippered pockets and liners to keep your stuff from exploding out when you unzip the bag, even if TSA makes you open it up in the middle of the airport.
$300 is a lot to spend on a vacuum cleaner, but the Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Canister vac has quite a few tricks up its sleeve:
- When it topples over, it stands back up on its own.
- A dirt ejector...ejects dirt when you empty the vacuum, so you don’t have to touch it.
- A five year warranty
The thing’s a behemoth, and it’s still not cheap, but it’s one of the most powerful vacuums Dyson makes, and it legitimately normally sells for $500. In fact, prior to this sale, the best price Amazon’s previously offered on it was $425, so we’re talking about a pretty massive discount. Just be sure to get yours before they’re all cleaned out.
Laptop bags that protect your computer during transport are usually all function and no form. And rightfully so. But this 17" Lifewit bag is actually pretty attractive and functional, with durable genuine leather accents, a padded interior, and a ton of pockets for things like your phone, chargers, and more. In fact, it’s just big enough that you could probably stuff enough clothes in there for the weekend. Use the code 6UNWVTQP and pick it up for $33.
Every new year heralds new fitness goals, but cruelly, no extra hours in the day during which you can achieve them. If life doesn’t afford you enough time to consistently hit the gym, a FitDesk lets you get in some low intensity cardio while you’re sitting at your desk.
Both the new 2018 FitDesk under-desk bike and recumbent bike desk are on sale today on Woot for $105 and $205 shipped, respectively. The under-desk model works with desks as low as 25", while the recumbent bike folds up so you can store it in your closet at home when not in use.
Update: This 6-hour Zippo hand warmer is also on sale today, just $37.
Unlike those disposable hand warming packets, this $26 Zippo hand warmer will keep your hands toasty for two hours, then can be charged with the included USB cord, and reused over and over again. Plus, you can use it year ‘round to charge your phone, as it doubles as a 1900 mAh USB battery pack. It’s down from its usual $29 price tag, just in time for the winter chill.
Anker’s Roav dash cam has been a hit with our readers, but today you can save big on the newer Pro model.
Everything covered in our review of the original still applies here, but the Pro upgrades the resolution from 1080p to 2560x1440, and bundles in a 32GB microSD card so you don’t have to provide your own. Just think, your crazy dash cam footage could be the next to be featured on Jalopnik.

Anker’s settings its sights on the affordable LED lighting market with the release of its Lumi night lights, and right now, you can save a few bucks on a few different types.

Prep over a week’s worth of food in these Rubbermaid Take-Alongs, now cheaper than ever.
