Today’s Best Tech Deals

Nebula by Anker Prizm II 1080p LED Projector | $157 | Amazon | Use the code KINJAPM2
Photo: Amazon

If you want to build a budget, projector-based home theater, the Nebula Prizm II is a good one to consider, and right now you can get it for just $157.

It’s the perfect option for budget-conscious consumers who want to dip their toes in a different kind of home theater. It regularly sells for around $230, and that price was already a great bargain. Use exclusive coupon code KINJAPM2 to get it for an all-time low $157, and then start prepping your popcorn.


32" AOC QHD Display | $170 | Best Buy
Graphic: Shep McAllister

4K monitors get all the love these days, but 2560x1440 QHD displays work with a wider range of computers, and still offer a ton of screen real estate at a more affordable price.

Advertisement

Case and point: This 32" AOC display, now marked down to an all-time low $170 (down from a usual ~$220). Its 75 Hz refresh rate and 5 ms response time probably won’t be what serious gamers are looking for, but it does support AMD FreeSync if you have a compatible graphics card, and it’ll be a perfectly good display for day-to-day work.


If your teen’s gaming rig is on its last legs, or if you just want a relatively affordable way to get into PC gaming for your “dad build,” this HP Omen Desktop is down to just $1,300.

While that seems like a lot (and for some, it is,) this same computer is selling for $1,923 on Amazon.

This HP tower offers a AMD Ryzen8-Core 3.6GHz processor, a last-gen NVIDIA GTX 1080 8GB graphics card, 16GB of RAM, and 2TB HDD and 512GB SSD for storage. Add that up, and this PC is more than capable of handling most games available right now. Just remember, this discount will only last until the end of the day, or until sold out.


LIFX Smart Light Panels Set of Five | $120 | Walmart
Photo: Walmart

Smart light bulbs are all well and good, but there’s no smart home gear that’s as cool as smart light wall panels.

Advertisement

This set of five panels from LIFX doesn’t require a hub, works with Apple HomeKit (and all the other major smart home systems), and in a marked departure from most similar products, includes 64 individual adressable zones within each square. That means you can gradients, fine patterns, and much more unique looks than you could achieve if each square could only display a single color at a time.

The set has everything you need to get started, and only costs $120 at Walmart today.


Refurb Vizio SB36512-F6 Dolby Atmos 5.1.2 Sound Bar | $230 | Woot
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Dolby Atmos is coming for your living room, and we couldn’t be more ready. Today at Woot, you can pick up a refurbished 5.1.2 kit from Vizio for just $230, easily the best price we’ve ever seen on an Atmos sound bar kit with true upward-firing speakers.

Here’s how it works: The sound bar features three front facing speakers, and two that point upwards to bounce sound off the ceiling for that immersive Atmos effect. You then put the wireless subwoofer in the back of your room, and plug the two satellite speakers into it, ideally running the cables behind your couch. That means you don’t have to run any wires from the sound bar to the rear satellites, which makes setup much easier.

This deal is only available today, and I suspect it’ll sell out early.


SteelSeries Sensei 310 Ambidextrous Gaming Mouse | $35 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

12,000 DPI sensor. RGB lighting. Split trigger buttons. Sounds like a pretty expensive gaming mouse, right?

...

...

...

WRONG. Trick question. I was describing the SteelSeries Sensei 310, which is on sale for an all-time low $35. Idiot.


Mpow EG3 7.1 Gaming Headset | $19| Amazon | Use promo code RN7BE5XG

Will Mpow’s EG3 gaming headset match the sound quality of a HyperX Cloud? Of course not. Do you want fancy LED lights? Try something from Razer. But if you’re on a budget and want to experience 7.1 surround sound (which really helps in games like Fortnite and PUBG), you can’t beat $19. Just use promo code RN7BE5XG at checkout to get the deal.

Bonus 1 Pound of Scallops + 1 Pack of Bacon With New Butcher Box Membership | Butcher Box
Photo: Kamil Kalbarczyk (( (Unsplash), Donald Giannatti (( (Unsplash)

Butcher Box just added a new meat to its arsenal: wild-caught Atlantic sea scallops! Yes, the chicken nuggets of the sea can be delivered to your front door, and if you sign up for a new membership right now, you’ll get a pound of scallops and a pack of bacon thrown in for free, in addition to whatever else would have been in your box anyway.

Advertisement

You may be tempted to make bacon-wrapped scallops, and I wouldn’t blame you if you did, but there’s nothing wrong with enjoying them separately, on their own merits.

Your bonus come bundled with any of Butcher Box’s pre-selected boxes, which are priced at $129 for 24 servings, or $238 for 48 servings, which can be delivered every 30 or 60 days. For a nominal surcharge, you can also build a completely custom box, with your choices of proteins.


6-Pack Extra Large Dryer Balls | $10 | Amazon | Promo code BAK2SKL42

Wool dryer balls are the hottest laundry invention of the decade, and you can get six extra large ones for $10 with promo code BAK2SKL42. Just toss them in your dryer, and your clothes will dry faster, come out softer, and have fewer wrinkles at the end of the cycle.

At the very least, you should use dryer balls instead of fabric softener or dryer sheets when drying towels and workout gear, as chemical fabric softener leaves a residue that makes fabrics less water absorbent, which is obviously an issue in both cases.


Thermapen IR Probe and Infrared Thermometer | $118 | ThermoWorks

With the Thermapen IR, ThermoWorks took the industry standard Thermapen probe thermometer, and added an accurate IR thermometer, combining two useful kitchen tools into one.

So now, with a single gadget, you can check to make sure your pan is ready for searing with the laser thermometer, and make sure your meat is fully cooked with the probe. Here’s how it works:

But probe thermometers aren’t really designed to tell you how hot a cooking surface is, or say, detect air conditioning leaks. For those tasks, you want a non-contact infrared thermometer. At the bottom of the Thermapen IR, you’ll find a lens. Just point it at any surface from about five inches away, hit a button, and you’ll get an instant temperature reading on the screen. Unlike most temperature guns, this one doesn’t project a visible laser, which is no fun from a dicking-around-and-measuring-the-temperature-of-your-dog perspective, but not really a huge deal if you’re using it for cooking.

The Thermapen IR has never been discounted outside of Thermoworks’ occasional sitewide sales, but today only, you can get it for $118, a 15% discount.


Daewoo Retro Compact Refrigerator, Mint Green, City Blue, and Cream Beige | $229 | Amazon
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

College move-in day is almost here, which means young adults are on the hunt for mini fridges. If you love a good retro aesthetic, this Daewoo Retro Compact Refrigerator is on sale in three colors: Mint Green, City Blue, and Cream Beige. Those colors are marked down by $30 each. The mint green model would look stylish on any Pinterest board.

Advertisement

For something mini, this fridge has plenty of space for meals, snacks, and beverages, with two shelves and a drawer unit. The shelf on the door can hold full bottles of soda, milk, and tea and even has a little compartment to store your butter. Some Amazon reviewers have even removed the inner freezer door to use it as added fridge space. If you’re not moving into a dorm, this still works great for a home office or man cave. It also appears to be a hit for tiny homes!


Eufy SpaceView Baby Monitor | $110 | Amazon | Clip the $30 coupon and use promo code BBMHHH22
Eufy SpaceView S Baby Monitor With Crib Mount and Lullaby Mode | $153 | Amazon

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 Eufy SpaceView is a great all-in-one solution for just $110 (down from the usual $160) when you clip the $30 coupon and use promo code BBMHHH22.

Advertisement

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.

The upgrade SpaceView S baby monitor is also on sale today for $153, down from $200. It’s basically the same product, but with five built-in lullabies that you can play for your baby remotely, and an included crib mount.


T-fal Professional Total Nonstick 3-Piece Cookware Set | $50 | Amazon
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

Stop wasting money on cookware that claims to be nonstick, but constantly forces you to scrub food scraps off the pain. You can snag a 3-piece T-fal Professional Total Nonstick 3-Piece Cookware Set for $50 on Amazon. It includes an 8-inch pan, 10.25-inch pan, and a 12.5-inch pan.

Advertisement

T-fal cookware is nonstick, as well as scratch-resistant, so you can really go to town on these pans. The set features T-fal’s Thermo Spot heat indicator, which signals when a pan is perfectly preheated. It is even oven safe up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.


College Dorm Fashion Bedding Collection Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Today only, Amazon’s offering a discount on bedding sets for back-to-school. What exactly makes it strictly for dorms? I’m not exactly sure, I’m not an R.A. I don’t think anyone would object if you bought this full/queen 5-piece comforter set for your own bedroom.

Advertisement

Prices start at just $32, with sizes ranging from twin to king (imagine fitting that in a dorm.) Just remember that these prices expire at the end of the day. Be sure to visit the main page to see all of the deals.


Up to 35% Off Grills and Smokers | Home Depot

There is never a wrong time to grill. Sure, it might be uncomfortable to go outside when it is snowing in the winter, but you can do it. If you really love to grill and want to sneak in a couple more summer barbecues before the cold ruins your plans, you can get up to 35% off grills and smokers at Home Depot.

The Traeger Renegade Pro Wood Pellet Grill and Smoker is $488 during today’s sale. If you’re looking for a compact, budget-friendly option, the Dyna-Glo Charcoal Grill is $108. You can even make your own hibachi at home with 38% off a Lifesmart Propane Gas Hibachi Style Flat Top Griddle.


AmazonBasics Multipurpose Office Scissors, 3 Pack | $7 | Amazon
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

School is about to start and whether you’re a teacher, student, or parent, you need scissors. They’re a hot commodity that always seems to go missing right when you need them. Right now, you can get a 3-pack of AmazonBasics Multipurpose Office Scissors for only $7 on Amazon.

Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

Do you just throw shit in your trunk and hope for the best? Stop embracing the mess and clean up your crap. A Honey-Can-Do Folding Car Trunk Organizer is only $10 on Amazon and it will actually help you get your trunk in order. It even has side handles, in case you need to lug anything from your trunk into your house and back.

If you didn’t, now you do, and today, guys can snag a pair of Heavyweight Slim Jeans in two different washes—Indigo and Dark Indigo—for just $48, thanks to the retailer’s Choose What You Pay section (where Everlane lets you choose which discounted price you want to pay, but like, pick the lowest price, obviously?).

Men’s jeans rarely make an appearance in Choose What You Pay, so you’ll want to snap up these pairs before they sell out.

Right now, when you add two to your cart, you’ll get a $5 multibuy credit and can get two tubs for $23, instead of $28.

Now, that classic warm-weather look is more attainable than ever with 20% off your order from the retailer. Just use promo code SANDS, along with pin 1041, and outfit yourself and your entire family in the stylish summer wardrobe you all deserve.


Anker LC40 Rechargeable Flashlight | $17 | Amazon | Promo code ANKERL40
Anker LC30 Flashlight | $8 | Amazon | Promo code ANKERL30

The flashlight on your phone is fine for stumbling to the bathroom in the middle of the night, but for any situation where you want to see more than a few feet in front of you, it’s worth investing in a dedicated torch.

Advertisement

Anker’s upgraded LC40 now features a rechargeable battery (can you believe Anker ever sold one that didn’t?) that can run for up to 50 hours on low power mode, or for six with the light’s brightness maxed out at 400 lumens Of course, it recharges over USB (even from a USB battery pack, natch), and its IP65 rating means it can stand up to the elements. It normally costs $20, but they’re putting it in the spotlight this week with a discount to $17.

If you don’t need a rechargeable battery, the 300 lumen LC30 runs off AAA batteries, and is on sale for just $8 with promo code ANKERL30.

Now that your phone and your home are all smart, it’s apparently time to up the intelligence of your facial cleansing brush. The Clarisonic Mia Smart allows users to connect the brush to a smartphone app, which can customize preset routines on the device, in addition to the deep pore cleansing and exfoliating you’ve come to expect from the brand.

Now, do you need your facial cleansing brush to be bluetooth enabled? Nope. But it is a cool extra feature for those are who are looking to really maximize their cleansing routine. And now, all that cool skincare tech is on sale for $169 in either mint, pink, or white. The brush also comes with a charging stand, and it’s waterproof, so feel free to scrub away while you’re in the shower or bathtub. And it’s compatible with any Clarisonic brush head, so you can really go all out.


This $18 portable Thermacell mosquito repeller might allow you enjoy the outdoors again.

Place this down next to you when you’re outside, or throw in your hiking backpack and this cordless, odor-free device claims to ward off flying insects (most notably, mosquitoes) as far as 15 feet away for up to 12 hours.

After those 12 hours, you can replace the repellent mats and repellant-dispersing butane cartridge.

Most reviewers say it works pretty well, especially on days with little-to-no wind. $18 is about $4 less than usual; I just wish it had come at the beginning of summer.

Today’s Best Gaming Deals

Skyrim [Switch] | $45 | Amazon
Screenshot: Heather Alexandra ((Kotaku)

For a 27 year old (approximate guess) game, Skyrim has been remarkably stubborn about going on sale on Nintendo Switch. We saw it drop to $30 briefly during Black Friday, but if you didn’t pull the trigger then, you’ve been lucky to find it for less than $50. Today on Amazon though, you can score a copy for $45.

You could certainly argue that’s still too much for a game that you probably already own on four other systems, but he, it’s Skyrim in your pocket, how cool is that!


Ticket to Ride Express: New York City 1960 | $16 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Ticket To Ride is one of my favorite board games, but sometimes, you don’t have a full hour to dedicate to a game. Enter Ticket to Ride Express: New York City 1960, which replaces the country or continent-spanning map of the main game with a map of lower Manhattan.

Advertisement

The rules are more or less the same, but you can get through a full round in just 15 New York minutes. Get it for $16, down from the usual $20, and an all-time low.

Deals You May Have Missed

Aukey Power Strip (4 Outlets and 4 USB Ports) | $14 | Amazon | Use code DKGTHX5H
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Whether you’re moving your teen into a dorm room or want to power a few more gadgets than your wall outlet will allow, this Aukey power strip is a no brainer. With 4 outlets and 4 USB ports built in, you can power just about any accessory or give your spare cables a new job.

Advertisement

This current price is the lowest we’ve ever seen. Just make sure to use the promo code DKGTHX5H to get the best price.


Bose Noise Masking Sleepbuds | $199 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Sleepy soundly thanks to these discounted Bose noise-masking Sleepbuds. Down to just $199, this current price matches the lowest we’ve ever seen.

Advertisement

Whether you live in a noisy neighborhood (like I do,) or want the benefits of a white noise machine without disturbing your partner, these Sleepbuds can be your saving grace. In their review, Gizmodo says they are incredibly comfortable and “great at drowning out sounds, and pretty easy to use.”

The design is reminiscent of true wireless headphones, come with a few fitting options, and they charge in a little case, too. Choose from 10 different tracks/sounds, but, just a heads up, they don’t let you listen to music or podcasts before bed.

Advertisement

This current price is $50 less than usual and matches what we saw during Amazon Prime Day.


RAVPower Wireless Charging Stand | $25 | Amazon | Clip coupon on page and use the promo code TVPC06934
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Clip coupon on page and use the promo code TVPC06934 to bring this sweet RAVPower Qi wireless charging stand down to just $25. This is a rare discount on an a product we normally see for about $50. Oh, and by the way this is lowest price we’ve ever seen.

Advertisement

It includes a Quick Charge 3.0 adapter to help you get super fast charge speeds (10W for Android and 7.5W for iPhone.)


Xcentz 18W USB-C PD 10,000mAh Battery Pack | $14 | Amazon | Promo code XCENTZ219

Until very recently, USB-C Power Delivery battery packs were exclusively large. Like 20,000mAh or more, and a few pounds to boot. But if you don’t need that much power for a few hours on a plane, this pack from Xcentz is a svelte 10,000mAh, and only $14 today with promo code XCENTZ219. You even get a USB-C to USB-C and a USB-C to USB-A cable in the box, which is ridiculous at this price.

Advertisement

To be clear, its USB-C PD port only outputs 18W, not the 30W or even 45W we’ve seen on larger packs. But I used a sample they sent with my Nintendo Switch on a flight last weekend, and it was fast enough to increase the charge level on my Nintendo Switch while playing Breath of the Wild, albeit not very quickly. It’ll also charge an iPhone at the maximum possible speed if you pair it with a USB-C to Lightning cable like this one.


ASUS ROG Swift PG348Q 34" Gaming Monitor | $720 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Asus’s ROG line of gaming monitors are the favorite among pro gamers and with good reason: they’re awesome. This ASUS ROG Swift PG348Q 34" monitor is packed with all the stuff you’d want from a gaming monitor.

Advertisement

The PG348Q offers a curved panel (which is awesome for immersive gaming), uses G-Sync (which eliminates tearing), and a 3440x1440 resolution. There is one minor flaw: the 100Hz refresh rate. While 144hz is the gold standard for competitive gaming, it’s actually a rarity in ones this size.

This current price is the lowest we’ve ever seen, and it’s unlikely to last. And yes, seven hundred and fifty dollars may seem hard to swallow, but it’s ostensibly two monitors in one. So, rocket jump over and buy this thing before... well, it’s game over man.
