Today’s Best Tech Deals

Anker SoundBuds Curve | $21 | Amazon

Anker’s SoundBuds Curves were a runner up in our recent affordable headphone poll (they were only beat out by Anker’s own SoundBuds Slims), and you can grab a pair for just $21 today.

The SoundBuds Curve are the sportiest member of the SoundBuds family, and are designed with active users in mind. Their ear wings ensure they stay put while you exercise, and an internal hydrophobic coating means your sweat won’t fry them. Their best spec though? 12.5 hours of battery life, which is basically unheard of in the space.


Bose Solo 5 Sound Bar | $199 | Amazon

The Bose Solo 5 isn’t much for frills. There’s no surround sound, Atmos, or external subwoofer to be found here. But it is a dead simple, compact, and well-revieweed sound bar that will make your TV sound way better, and even has a dedicated dialogue mode to make voices come through loud and clear.

$199 is as low as it ever gets (and it’s only been on sale for this cheap a few times before), so if you’re still using any of your TVs’ built-in speakers, your ears will thank you for this.


Vizio V70 70" 4K HDR TV | $798 | Walmart

Vizio’s budget-friendly E-Series TVs have been replaced in 2019 with the new V-Series, and the 70" model is currently cheaper than the equivalent 2018 E model ever got, even during the holidays (it’s currently $30 more expensive).

$798 gets you a 70" 4K TV with local dimming for better black levels, and even support for Dolby Vision HDR (the good kind), which is rare at this price point and size. You also get built-in Chromecast support, Google Assistant and Alexa support, and even Vizio WatchFree, which lets you stream 100 live TV and online channels with no subscription.


Anker SoundCore Pro+ 25W Bluetooth Speaker | $72 | Amazon | Clip the $18 coupon
Photo: Anker

Anker’s best known for its small and portable SoundCore Bluetooth speakers, but the larger and louder SoundCore Pro+ is great for backyard barbecues and parties.

The Pro+ puts out 25W of sound through four drivers, both double what you’d find in the original SoundCore. It’s also IPX4 water resistant, so it can stand up to rain, and runs for a very respectable 18 hours on a charge. It typically sells for $90, but Anker’s marked it down to $72 this week after you clip the $18 coupon.


RAVPower 60W 6-Port USB Charging Hub | $17 | Amazon | Promo code KINJA13B
Photo: Amazon

Want to charge all of the things, all at one time? This RAVPower USB charging hub features six ports with 60W of power shared between them, which is plenty even to charge six iPads simultaneously. Best of all, it’s only $17 with promo code KINJA13B, so what will you do with that much power?


Status Audio CB-1 Over-Ear Headphones | $45 | Status Audio | Promo code INVENTORY50. $39 + $6 shipping
Photo: Amazon

If price has been the barrier to entry keeping you from better audio, Status Audio is offering our readers the best price we’ve ever seen on their cult-favorite CB-1 over-ear headphones. Use promo code INVENTORY50 to get them for $39 (plus $6 shipping). We ran this deal a few months ago, and hundreds of you took advantage, but now you have a chance if you missed out (or just want a second pair).

Status is a direct-to-consumer headphone company, building great cans in proven form factors without the markup that comes with popular brands. In fact, there’s no branding here whatsoever.

The CB-1s are extremely comfortable out of the box, more so (in our opinion) than the ATH-M50X, MDR7506, SR60e, or V-MODA Crossfade Wireless, just to name a few.

The CB-1s have a (relatively) flat frequency response that’s great for listening to a variety of music or audio/video editing, with a wide sound stage in a closed back design. I get good isolation/seal with the updated pads. The elephant in the room here is that these are wired headphones, in the year 2019. For some of you, that may be a deal killer, but if not, they kindly include two detachable cables- coiled and straight, to ease the pain. They even smartly attach to the headphones with a twist lock.

We know from six years of Kinja Deals that great over-ear, closed back headphones for under $60 is no joke. Depending on what you’ve shelled out for in the past, they might even blow away your much more expensive pairs.


Seagate FireCuda 1TB Hybrid Drive | $50 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Seagate’s FireCuda is our favorite PS4 internal replacement drive, mostly thanks to its built-in 8GB of flash storage that can speed up your loading times, and you can get the 1TB model for just $50 today, the best price ever. It won’t be as fast as a real SSD, but for the price, it’s a perfect middle ground.


AmazonBasics Tech Sale | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Amazon has a surprisingly deep bench of tech products under its AmazonBasics umbrella, and a ton of them are on sale right now. The deal is mostly comprised of cables, including USB-C cables (everyone needs more of those these days!), Lightning cables, and even DisplayPort cables. But dive into the sale, and you’ll also find laptop bags, monitor arms, wireless mice, and more.

We aren’t sure how long this deal will last, so go fill up your cart while you can.


ASUS ROG Swift PG348Q 34" Gaming Monitor | $791 | 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, it’s nigh-$800 price 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.


TP-Link Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Today’s TP-Link Gold Box has everything you need to completely overhaul your home’s Wi-Fi or add automation with internet-connected products for some of the best prices ever.

Advertisement

Notable deals include the $55 Kasa Smart Power Strip, $168 TP-Link AC5400 Tri Band Smart WiFi Gaming Router, $16 Kasa Smart WiFi Light Bulb, the $170 TP-Link Deco Mesh System and Echo Dot bundle, and $80 Archer CR500 modem all of which are selling for their lowest Amazon price.

Of course, this is a Gold Box. So, the discounts will only last until the end of the day, or until sold out. Be sure to check the main deal page for all of the markdowns offered.

Today’s Best Home Deals

Instant Pot IP-DUO60 | $69 | Amazon

If you don’t own a pressure cooker, today’s a great day to fix that, as Amazon’s knocked the highly-rated Instant Pot IP-DUO60 down to $69, or $31 less than usual, and only $10 shy of the deals we saw around Black Friday. If you wait for Prime Day, you may get a better price, but it’s hard to imagine a cheaper Instant Pot deal before then.

Instant Pots do more than just cook foods quickly, though they certainly do that. In fact, it’s is also our readers’ favorite slow cooker, and an amazing rice cooker too. To put a fine point on it: It’s one of the most versatile kitchen gadgets you can own, and worthy of all the hype.

(It’s the cheapest it’s ever been.)


OxyLED Under-Cabinet Light Kit | $19 | Amazon | Promo code 5XY8KP83

OxyLED is best known for its battery-powered light strips, but this discounted kit plugs into an AC outlet, and is designed specifically for under-cabinet installation.

Advertisement

The $19 kit (with promo code 5XY8KP83) comes with three foot-long LED light bars, plus three connecting cables. You can either plug the bars into each other to create a longer strip, or use the cables to snake around corners and extend your setup. Once it’s all installed, just use the touch-sensitive power button to turn them on and adjust the brightness, and enjoy a well-lit countertop while you prepare dinner.



Philips Hue lights and Amazon Echoes go together like whiskey and hunting, and now, you can get a two-bulb color starter kit with an Amazon Echo Dot for $90.

Advertisement

Full-color bulbs usually sell for $50 each, and even on sale rarely dip below $40, so if you need a hub and smart assistant, this is a great deal. Just be warned, once you buy these, you’re going to want to buy a lot more of them.


20% Off Select Flea Medication | Chewy | Discount shown at checkout. Limit 5 boxes.
Graphic: Shep McAllister

You don’t want to take chances with fleas, believe me. If you use Capstar or Cheristin flea medicine for your furry friend, Chewy wants you to stock up today for 20% off. Just add any of these medicines to your cart, and you’ll see the discount at checkout. Limit five per customer.


Kershaw PT-1 Keychain Multitool | $5 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Kershaw’s PT-1 is a keychain tool with three separate functions: a pry bar, a flathead screwdriver, and (what you’ll use it for 99% of the time) a bottle opener. I’d also add a fourth though: packing tape breaker. It’s not a blade, so it won’t slice open a package, but it’d be useful for getting them started so you can claw them open with your fingers. Just $5, a steal.


Fisher Space Pen | $10 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

There’s an old joke that NASA spent millions developing a pen that could write in space, and the Russians used a pencil. Whatever, it was totally worth it. Amazon’s selling the official Fisher space pen for just $10 right now, so you too can write in zero gravity, in sub-zero temperatures, or even under water.


25% Off Home | Anthropologie
Image: Anthropologie

Whenever I walk into an Anthropologie, I realize that my apartment is all wrong because it is not completely filled with all the cool, rustic, yet somehow also glamorous furnishings that the store has to offer. But if there were ever a day to makeover your house — and by extension, your life — it would be today, because Anthropologie is taking 25% off all home items.

You could do something as big as purchasing a new sofa, as medium as upgrading your floor with a new rug, or as subtle as replacing your knobs with new, cool hardware. But whatever you do, don’t miss this deal; speaking from experience here, I have an Anthropologie duvet cover, and I love it more than some of my blood relatives.


Aquis Microfiber Hair Turban (Pink color only) | $17 | Amazon
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Microfiber hair towels are responsible for completely transforming my hair into a shinier, less frizzy version of itself, and today, my favorite brand of microfiber hair towel is a few bucks off. Aquis’s Original Hair Turban in pink is just $17, compared to the usual $21 price tag. Hair turbans have the added bonus of allowing you to wring out your hair hands-free, so you can go about the rest of your post-shower routine more easily. If you’re not concerned about messing with your curl pattern, it’s deal you’ll want to soak up before it dries out.


Coleman Saluspa Tahiti Airjet Hot Tub Spa | $297 | Walmart
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

If you have plans to spend time outside during the forthcoming warmer seasons, consider also spending that time submerged in your very own inflatable hot tub. This Coleman Saluspa Tahiti Airjet Hot Tub Spa is on sale for $297, nearly $100 off its usual price. It can comfortably seat four and warms up to a scalding 104 degrees, not to mention it’s equipped with 81 air jets and a built-in LED lighting system. Or, you could just fill the hot tub with all the money you’ll save by shopping this deal. Your call.


Everyone needs pens, and let me tell you, Amazon’s got pens. Today only, Amazon’s discounting a ton of different styles of pens, markers and highlighters from BIC, as part of a Gold Box deal. Have a favorite type? Let us know in the comments.

Today’s Best Lifestyle Deals

Benefit knows brows, and today, you can snag one of the brand’s Precisely, My Brow Pencil Ultra Fine Shape & Define for half off its regular price at Sephora. Choose from 12 shades to find your perfect match, and get ready to fill ’em in and comb ’em out with the brush on the reverse side— really, using a brow pencil makes a subtle, albeit significant difference to your overall look, if you haven’t tried one yet. This sale is one day only, though, so don’t beat around the bush.

Today’s Best Gaming Deals

RGB lighting has been shown to improve aim, reflexes and performance in clutch moments*. And if you care anything about your gaming rig, you’d buy this Amazon Basics gaming mousepad.

Deals You May Have Missed

Apple Watch Series 4 44mm Space Gray with Cellular | $480 | Amazon | Clip the $35 coupon
Apple Watch Series 4 44mm Gold with Cellular | $480 | Amazon | Clip the $34 coupon

If you’ve been holding out for a deal on the cellular-equipped Apple Watch Series 4, Amazon’s dialed up a $35 discount on the 44mm Space Gray and Gold options today. These discounts come in the form of a clippable coupon, so just note that you won’t see the final $480 price tag at checkout.

These are the best deals we’ve seen on the cellular options, but if you’re okay with the GPS-only models, those are still on sale for $50 off at Walmart as refurbs.


Perlesmith Articulating TV Wall Mount | $35 | Amazon | Promo code CU7PQPWS

If you’ve been meaning to finally mount your TV to the wall, it’s a cheaper endeavor than you might expect. This mount from Perlesmith is only $35 today after you use promo code CU7PQPWS, and allows you to tilt, swivel, and extend TVs up to 70" and 132 pounds however you’d like. You also get an HDMI cable, a bubble level, and some cable ties, because why not?


Anker PowerCore Redux 15000 | $34 | Amazon
Anker PowerCore Redux 20000 | $42 | Amazon

We loved Anker’s PowerCore Redux 10,000mAh battery pack for its incredibly small and hand-friendly design, and now, it comes in two larger capacities as well, both of which are on sale this week.

The new 15,000mAh version is down to $34 from its regular $41, and the 20,000mAh is marked down to $42 from $50. Both feature the same basic design of the original Redux, but larger, and with a second USB charging port added. They also include Anker’s unique trickle charging mode, which can supply power to low voltage devices like Bluetooth headphones that might not normally draw enough power to keep a USB battery pack “awake.”


Preorder Cubepacks | Kickstarter

Packing cubes are awesome for helping you pack and fit more stuff into a suitcase, but once you arrive at your hotel and unpack your clothes, they’re basically useless as anything except dirty laundry holders.
