Top Tech Deals

Extra-long charging cables are perfect for running behind your couch or stretching to your nightstand from an inconvenient power outlet, and this reader-favorite Anker PowerLine cable is about $3 off its usual price today.

Vansky Amplified HDTV Antenna, $17 with code IIJU86E9

If you’ve tried an unamplified HDTV antenna (like the standard Mohu Leaf), but can’t quite pull in every channel you want, this leaf-style model includes a USB-powered amp that should add a few miles of range. Promo code IIJU86E9 brings it down to just $17, which is one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on an amplified antenna.

Before you flee the country and/or go on your next international trip, be sure to pick up this universal plug adapter for $12 with code TENSUN05. It also comes with a detachable USB adapter (with standard US prongs) that can be used as a standalone charger as well.

4-Outlet/4-USB Power Strip, $16 with code AUKEYPA1

Half of your electronics charge over USB these days, so it makes sense to buy power strips that include both AC outlets and USB ports. For just $16, this Aukey power strip includes four of each.

TP-Link Deco M5 Mesh Router 3-Pack, $200 with code 50RADIO

TP-Link just came out with their answer to the mesh networking trend, and you can get three Deco M5 routers for just $200 today with promo code 50RADIO.

By virtue of being new, these don’t have as many reviews as, say, Eero routers, but $200 for a 3-pack (enough to cover a 4500 square foot home, according to TP-Link) is a pretty stunning price compared to similar products on the market. I was actually sent a demo unit of the three-pack to try out, and while I couldn’t really test the range in my 700 square foot apartment, I found them to be very easy to set up.

You don’t need to sell a kidney to afford noise-cancelling Bluetooth headphones; these 4 star-rated Cowin E-7s are just $39 right now, or $31 off with promo code 4BW672VA.

They might not have the brand recognition of Sony or Bose, but these headphones pack in 30 hours of battery life, the ability to use them in wired mode if the battery dies, and yes, active noise cancellation that reviewers say works really well.

Top Home Deals

These days, you probably charge as many things over USB as you do over standard AC outlets, so it only makes sense to add some semi-permanent USB ports to your home.

Today on Amazon, you can get highly-rated duplex receptacles with a pair of USB ports for $16 each with promo code RLFQ6HCT. That’s one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on one of these things, and in fact, it’s the best price we’ve seen on a model with 4.8A of power shared between the two USB ports. These have proven very popular with readers in the past, even at higher prices, so be sure to secure a few before Amazon sells out.

S’mores are too good to only be enjoyed the one or two times per year that you find yourself around an open campfire. This (admittedly somewhat silly) $10 pan locks your graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows into place for melting on the grill, or even in the oven.

Yeah, you’ll lose some of the folksy charm or melting marshmallows around an open flame, but there’s nothing stopping you from turning off the lights and telling ghost stories.

This $195 Masterbuilt electric smoker makes cooking jerky, brisket, or (insert meat of your choice) as easy as dropping in some wood chips and hitting a few buttons.



With precise temperature control from 100 to 275 degrees, you’ll have complete command over the finished product. Today’s price is within $5 of an all-time low, and about $45 less than usual. That’s more money you can spend on delicious, delicious meat.

I saw Dude Wipes for the first time on Shark Tank, and aside from the pandering name, they do seem like they’re pretty great. Today on Amazon, you can get two 30-packs of individually-wrapped wipes for $11, or about $4 less than usual.

That’s still pretty expensive (not to mention wasteful) for regular use at home, but they’d be great for traveling or (gasp) taking into a porta potty. Just preparing for the worst here.

Lysol wipes are one of the easiest ways to wipe down cabinets, and they’re a gift sent from the heavens whenever someone in your house has a cold. Assuming you’ve got some extra cabinet space, you should definitely pick up 240 wipes for $8 up with this clippable Amazon coupon.

For tougher jobs, you can also get 150 dual action wipes, which include a rough scrubbing side, for $9 (via a 20% on-screen coupon).

Andake Travel Pillow, $11 with code NTP1087P

It won’t exactly make flying economy “comfortable,” but this $11 travel pillow might at least help you doze off for an hour here or there. Plus, since it’s inflatable, it’ll fit in your carry-on or personal item.

Zitrades Globe String Light Strand, $15 with code H8A2IF9O

We see deals all the time on copper string lights, but if you prefer the look of “globe” style incandescents, you can get a 25′ strand with 25 bulbs for $15 today (with code H8A2IF9O). It’s already warm outside, so string these up on your patio and enjoy the outdoors.

Ouddy 16″ Magnetic Knife Holder, $13 with code 8U5OXWRQ

Why on Earth would you store your knives in a block or a drawer when magnetic strips exist? They keep your knives from rattling around and getting damaged, they look really damn cool, and you can get one for $13 with code 8U5OXWRQ.

Hamilton Beach’s breakfast burrito maker is a unitasker, no doubt, but it’s an awesome unitasker. You put a tortilla on the bottom to warm up, your egg and other ingredients in the top section, and remove a trap door once it’s all cooked to drop your fillings into the tortilla in one fell swoop. I would use this thing every day and gain a lot of weight.

Here’s a stupid little thing that’ll make your life just a little bit easier. Joseph Joseph’s Double Dish is a clever little invention for eating edamame, olives, pistachios, or any other finger foods that leave behind scraps, and it’s just $11 on Amazon right now.

If you haven’t figured it out yet, you just fill the top bowl with the food of your choice, and drop the remains through one of three chutes into the bottom bowl. At the end of the day, it’s still two dishes to clean up, but it takes up less space on your table, it looks cool, and most importantly, you don’t have to stare at those disgusting olive pits during your meal. Today’s price is an all-time low, so get cracking.

OxyLED T-02 Plus Warm, $19 with code KINJA02P | OxyLED T-02 Warm, $9 with code KINJAT02

OxyLED saw our readers’ comments about the T-02 night light’s color temperature yesterday, so they’ve reached out with a pair of deals on their brand new warm models. These are exactly the same as the original T-02 and T-02 Plus (check out our roundup to see the differences), but with warmer bulbs that should be more pleasant at night.

Koogeek Smart Plug, $22 with code AK25AEN6

We see deals on WeMo switches and TP-Link Smart Plugs on a pretty regular basis, but this similar product from Koogeek is Apple HomeKit certified, and only $22 today.

Like those other smart switches, the Koogeek Wi-Fi Smart Plug includes an app for turning your electronics on and off, and putting them on a schedule. The key difference here is that you can also control it with Siri from your phone, or from Control Center in iOS 10. That’s a big deal if you’re an iPhone owner, and with promo code AK25AEN6, you’re not even paying a premium for it.

Suaoki 300A Jump Starter, $22 with code SRFU7W8A

This Suaoki portable jump starter only puts out 300A, meaning you should only buy it if your car’s engine is 2.5L or smaller. But if that’s all you need, $22 is one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on any product like this.

The humble and inexpensive cast iron skillet is one of most important pieces of cooking gear you can own, and Lodge’s highly-rated 10” model is back down to $13 on Amazon. If you don’t own one, you shouldn’t hesitate.

Cooking for one? The 8″ model is a few bucks less.



While you’re there, pick up some cast iron scrapers or a chainmail scrubber for cleaning, and a silicone handle cover to protect your hands.

Summer’s just around the corner, and if your home or office is starting to feel a little stuffy, this popular Honeywell desk fan has never been cheaper. I’ve used this exact fan on my nightstand for years, and can confirm that it blows air quite well.

Tide Smart Pouch 3-Pack, $14 after Subscribe & Save and $3 coupon

Update: Back in stock, if you missed it last week.

For a limited time, Amazon will sell you three pouches of Tide HE-compatible laundry detergent (totaling 144 ounces or 93 loads) for just $14. These pouches are designed basically as refills for plastic Tide bottles, but as long as that doesn’t bother you, this is a fantastic price-per-ounce for any detergent, let alone name brand. Just be sure to clip the $3 coupon on the page and use Amazon Subscribe & Save.

Top Lifestyle Deals

If you need a quick, last minute Father’s Day gift idea, or just need a little nudge in the right skin care direction before summer, this Gold Box is for you. Not only is there the Braun Wet & Dry Shaver, there is a shave cream, moisturizer, and exfoliator. And for the millionth time, everyone should be taking care of their face, no matter their gender. No one deserves bad skin.

30% off, plus free shipping, with code BFF17

It’s basically summer, so it’s as good a time as any to stock up on new workout clothes with PUMA’s Friends & Family Sale. Use the code BFF17 and take 30% off all sale styles and select full-price styles (participating styles are marked with Friends & Family Event), plus you’ll grab free shipping as well. It’s time to pounce on this deal.

ExOfficio underwear is not only one of your favorite underwear, they’re also a Bestseller. In honor of Father’s Day, they’re taking an additional 20% off men’s styles with the code FDAY20. Plus, that 20% off stacks on top of their up to 60% off sale section as well.

The Amopé is an electric foot file that literally files down the gross calluses on your feet until they slightly resemble that of a modern human. Get the the Wet & Dry Amopé for just $30. Unlike the original, this can also be used in the shower, so you can easily wash all your foot shavings down the drain. Pick one up and start taking better care of your treads.

Philips Sonicare 2 Series, $30 after $10 coupon

If you want to take better care of your teeth, buying a Philips Sonicare 2 Series toothbrush for $30 (after $10 coupon) would be a great start. You haven’t brushed until you’ve brushed at 31,000 strokes per minute.

We sometimes see the Sonicare Essence available for $20 (in fact, it is right now), but for $10 more, the 2 Series includes a slimmer design, compatibility with multiple brush head styles, and a smaller charger that’s easier to pack in a suitcase.

In my opinion, a classic wristwatch still looks better than a smartwatch, any day. Today only, pick up the perfect last minute Father’s Day gift: an Invicta watch. Amazon’s Gold Box can get them to you by Sunday, since they all have Prime shipping, plus they’re all under $70. But time’s a-tickin’ on this deal and these prices only last until the end of the day.

Mesh Beach Bag with Cooler, $12 with code 9FAB88JA

Beach season is here, and you can schlep all of your stuff from the parking lot in this $12 mesh bag. The best part? The entire bottom section of the bag is actually a zip-on cooler to store drinks and snacks, meaning you’ll have one less thing to carry.

If you’ve had your eyes on a Fitbit (may we recommend the Charge 2?), or wanted to get one for Dad this month, nearly the entire lineup is on sale right now on Amazon, with discounts ranging from $20 to $50.

Top Media Deals

Amazon always offers a free one-month trial of its Audible audiobook service, but for a limited time, they’re also tossing in an extra free book credit to sweeten the pot. That’s in addition to the book you normally get with the trial, and each credit is valid for any title in the Audible library. The best part? The books you choose are yours to keep, even if you cancel the trial before it renews.


Just note that this deal is only valid for new Audible members only.

Top Gaming Deals

Sades Gaming Headset, $13 with code 6AH8Z83N

This Sades gaming headset lacks noise cancellation, surround sound, and other advanced features, but it’s comfortable, well reviewed, and works on basically any console. Not bad for $13.

If you’re in the market for a solid mid-range gaming headset on a budget, the Logitech G430 is down to $35 today, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen. That’s a bargain considering you get a noise-cancelling boom mic and Dolby 7.1 surround sound.

Update: This deal has, sadly, sold out, but we’ll always have Paris.



LEGO’s Louvre building kit would be a great gift for any art fan or Francophile, and it’s $10 less than usual today. And for the purists out there, you can just…not build the glass pyramid part.

Some people would probably give a kidney to own a Nintendo Switch, so if you’re one of the lucky few that’s actually gotten their hands on one, you’d damn well better take good care of it. For a limited time, get a pair of Anker screen protectors for $6, or $3 less than usual with promo code NO1B7475.

We could debate whether $250 for a golden 1TB PS4 Slim is a deal: MSRP for the console is $300, but Sony has explicitly said that this one will cost $250. That said, the gold model is only available for a limited time, so if you like the color, this is your chance.

Preorder Arms, $48 for Prime Members

Armssure seems like it’s going to be the Switch’s third must-own game, and you can get it on launch day for $48 if you have Amazon Prime. Just note that you won’t see the discount until checkout.

Pandemic Legacy is a co-op board game that raises the stakes by adding permanent (actually permanent) changes to the board as you play, and it’s amazing. It also happens to be marked down to $36 on Amazon today, within a few cents of an all-time low.

Note: Both of these products are essentially the same game, just with different color schemes, allowing you to keep two games going at once without getting confused.

$5 off the usual $69 isn’t a huge discount on the Switch Pro Controller, but Nintendo stuff being in stock is noteworthy these days, let alone discounted.
