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
Graphic: Shep McAllister
Advertisement

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
Advertisement

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.

Advertisement

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
Advertisement

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
Advertisement

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).

Advertisement

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.

Advertisement

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.

Advertisement

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
Advertisement

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
Advertisement

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
Advertisement

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.

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.

Advertisement

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.

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
Advertisement

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.

Advertisement

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.

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.

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
Advertisement

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
Advertisement

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
Advertisement

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

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
Advertisement

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

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.

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.

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.

It’s currently at its lowest price ever.

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 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.

Advertisement

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. Revelar’s new Cubepacks aim to change that.

Advertisement

Cubepacks work like regular packing cubes, but with hidden strap that transform them into useful daypacks that you can carry around with you during your trip. The large cube turns into a full backpack, the medium one becomes a shoulder sling, and the small one works as a fanny pack, meaning you can get use out of the entire set for the duration of your trip.

Advertisement

When you think about it, this solves a real problem. When I travel, I usually bring a carry-on and a messenger bag or backpack. But that personal item is filled to the brim with my electronics, magazines, and other gear that I want to use on the plane. If I just want to use it as a lightweight daypack, I basically have to empty everything out in the hotel room, and repack it when I’m ready to leave. Packing cubes, on the other hand, get unpacked in my hotel room regardless, so the simple addition of straps (as well as useful features like side pockets and magnetic top flaps) make them much more useful, with no additional work on my part.

Cubepacks are already fully funded on Kickstarter, and you can preorder now at a discounted rate, with estimated delivery in September.

$15 Off All Orders | Buffy | Promo code KINJA15
Graphic: Chelsea Stone
Advertisement

Buffy comforters are a boon for people who run hot, but also like to be tucked under a cozy, fluffy blanket at night. Made from super soft eucalyptus fibers and filled with BPA-free recycled plastic water bottles, the brand’s Cloud Comforter is breathable yet soft, plus it’s anti-microbial, cruelty-free, water-conservational, and machine-washable. And now, you can try one of your own for $15 less than usual using promo code KINJA15.

Because Buffy knows buying a comforter sight unseen is unsettling to say the least, they offer a 30-night commitment-free trial. That means that you won’t actually be charged for your purchase until the 30 days are up. But rest assured, once you are charged, the $15 discount will be applied accordingly.

$50 off $400 Tire Purchase | Discount Tire Direct via eBay | Promo code PUMPEDUP. Stacks with manufacturer rebates.
Graphic: eBay

If you’ve been putting off replacing your tires for far too long, Discount Tire Direct’s eBay storefront is offering $50 off when you spend $400 and use promo code PUMPEDUP. That’s valid on both wheels and tires, and you can even browse this page to find options with stackable manufacturer rebates.

Advertisement

We’ve seen deals of up to $100 back on Discount Tire Direct’s own site on occasion, but those are always in the form of a Visa gift card via a rebate. This deal, on the other hand, is a straight discount taken at checkout, which should be less of a hassle.


$7-$17 off Mobil 1 Oil/Filter | Amazon/Walmart/Other | Submit rebate here
Graphic: Mobil 1

Update: Sorry about that, Amazon and Walmart aren’t listed as participating retailers this time around (though they’ve worked in the past). Home Depot is, however.

If your car takes synthetic oil, and you like to change it yourself, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better deal than this. For a limited time, if you buy five quarts of Mobil 1 and a filter, you can submit your receipt online for a $17 rebate, which should bring your total cost down to the $17-$18 range. Or, skip the filter and get $12 back just on the oil. $10 and $7 rebates are available for Mobil Super Synthetic and Mobil Super oil as well, respectively.

Walmart tends to have good prices on Mobil 1, but you can also find a lot of different weights on Amazon as well. Just don’t forget to submit that rebate.


B2G1 Free Dog Treats | Chewy

If your dog deserves two bags of dog treats (he does, obviously), then you might as well get a third bag for free from this limited time Chewy sale. Just pick any three dog treats from this page, and the cheapest of the three will become free at checkout. Who’s a good deal? Who’s a good deal? This is!

It even has both warm and cool mist modes; warm for faster humidifying in the winter, and cool for use in air conditioned rooms during the summer. Get yours now, before this special pricing runs dry.

Madewell Clothing, Handbags, Shoes | Nordstrom Rack
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

For the first time ever, Nordstrom Rack has debuted flash sales dedicated entirely to casual-cool brand Madewell’s clothes, handbags, and shoes. How do I know it’s the first time ever? Because I’ve been patiently checking Nordstrom Rack’s site every day, praying this moment would arrive. My wardrobe is so filled with Madewell apparel that I am essentially a walking Madewell advertisement when I get dressed every day (but this is not an ad, I just really, really love Madewell), so trust me when I say that now’s your chance to buy scores of quality, stylish stuff that’s more than half-off its usual price.

A few of my favorite things on sale? A mockneck sweater I’ve been wearing all winter long, this lighter transitional spring sweater, this pleated scoop-neck top that I own in two colors (no shame), a crowd-favorite, zip-top tote in a smart cabernet color, plus a lot of great jeans and tees. Please, for the love of God, hurry over to this sale; the best items are already selling out.

If you, too, are looking to reduce breakage and restore your hair’s healthy appearance stock up on Olaplex No. 3 Hair Perfector, now on sale for $21 at Walmart. It’s not a conditioner — it’s an at-home, 10-minute hair treatment meant to be used one to three times per week on damaged hair, so stock up on this cult-favorite product while it’s on sale.

Jurassic Park 4-Movie Collection | $20 | Amazon

Hindsight is 20/20. For instance, resurrecting hordes of dinosaurs to populate a theme park is probably not a great idea. Now, don’t you make a big mistake by passing up this roaring deal on the first four films that comprise the Jurassic Park Collection. Relive the movie magic of Jeff Goldblum’s glistening abs and the most terrifying scene involving Jell-O in Hollywood history, not to mention one of the newer film iteration featuring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard running for her life in high heels. Oh, and also a lot of human-devouring dinosaurs. Be sure to take a bite out of the action before this deal goes extinct.

Preorder Sega Genesis Mini | $80 | Walmart | Also on Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

In case you missed the news, the SEGA Genesis Mini arrives on September 19 with the same six button controller (my bad, the U.S. version only gets the three button version), 40 games, and a save state function. We still don’t have the full list of games for the U.S. version, but the initial announcements are more than promising:

  • Altered Beast
  • Castlevania: Bloodlines
  • Comix Zone
  • Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine
  • Ecco the Dolphin
  • Gunstar Heroes
  • Shining Force
  • Sonic The Hedgehog
  • Space Harrier II
  • ToeJam & Earl

The console just went up for preorder at Walmart for $80, with two bundled controllers. We don’t yet know if it will be difficult to find like Nintendo’s consoles, or a flop like Sony’s PlayStation Classic, but if you want to be sure to get yours when it comes out, I’d order now.

Update: Now available on Amazon too.

Nintendo Switch Pro Controller | $57 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister
Advertisement

The Switch Pro controller isn’t just one of the best ways to control your Nintendo Switch, it might be one of the best gamepads ever made, period. If you have a Switch and still haven’t picked one up, $57 is about $12 less than usual.

If you’re thinking “but I have a pair of Joy-Con and the grip thing; what do I need this for,” know that I felt the same way for a long time. But when I finally caved and bought a Pro controller for a Super Smash get-together a few months ago, there was no turning back. It’s so much more comfortable to hold, and the buttons are so much bigger and nicer to press. I’m angry that I waited so long.

You know Sphero’s rolling BB-8 droid toy? It’s based on their original app-controlled robot ball, which is a little less charming, but also way cheaper at just $40, in every color. Just connect your phone, and you can control the ball with an onscreen joystick, your phone’s accelerometer, or even, uh, your facial expressions.

With Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft basically created the Netflix of video games, and it’s a great deal at its usual $10 per month. But right now, if you buy three months of the service for $30, you’ll get an additional three months for free. That’s six months of access to which grants you access to over 100 games like Sea of Thieves, Crackdown 3, Marvel v. Capcom Infinite, and all of the Gear of War games. The best part of this deal? It’ll also work if you’re an existing member.
