Top Deals

You can never have enough flash storage, and Amazon’s here to feed your addiction with a one-day sale on SanDisk products.


Inside, you’ll find huge discounts on spacious microSD cards, speedy SD cards, and flash drives that work with your phone via Lightning connectors, microUSB plugs, or even built-in Wi-Fi. A few of our favorites are below, but head over to Amazon to see the rest.

Just remember that like all Gold Box deals, these prices are only available today, or until sold out.

Take a look around your house: Odds are, it’s not as clean as it could be. Luckily, Amazon’s offering a pretty incredible deal on house cleaning, this week only.

All you have to do is book two or more hours of house cleaning through Amazon for $69.99 or more, and you’ll automatically get a $40 cash back within two business days. Unfortunately, Amazon isn’t set up with providers everywhere in the country, but if you live in a covered area, this is as good a deal as you’ll ever see on professional cleaning services.

Just note that you’ll have to complete the checkout process with the local provider by 10/20, and you’ll have to schedule service within 90 days.

If your current phone is leaving shards of glass in your thumb, today’s a great day to upgrade: Sony’s Xperia X line is on sale in Amazon’s Gold Box.

Prices start from $199 for the entry-level Xperia XA, but you should probably pony up $349 for the Xperia X, which includes the ability to remotely play PS4 games, or $499 for the Xperia X Performance, which adds a Snapdragon 820 and IP68 dust and water resistance. All of these prices are all-time lows, but they’re only available today, or until sold out.

Your furry friend has been a very good dog, and Amazon’s stepping up to the plate with a Prime-only Gold Box deal on over a dozen Amazon-exclusive bones, chewables and…natural pig ears. No matter what you choose, it’s pretty safe to say that your dog will approve. Just remember that these prices are only available today, or until sold out.

Refurb GoPro Hero4 Silver, $234

The GoPro HERO5 looks like all that and a bag of chips, but if $400 is more than you can stomach for an action cam, the Hero4 Silver is a fantastic alternative for $234 refurbished.

While it can’t shoot 4K at 30fps, the Silver does include a built-in touchscreen like the new HERO5, and its 1080p footage remains stunning. And if you’re worried about buying a refurb, don’t be: This is direct from GoPro, meaning you get the same one year warranty that they include with brand new cameras.

If you want to dip your toes into the world of electric toothbrushes, Philips’ entry level Sonicare Essence line is an amazing value at $20 (after clipping the $5 coupon). I’ve been using this brush for years, and I still love it.

We saw this deal last month, but if you missed out, it’s back in stock today.

If you were planning on shopping at ThinkGeek for Halloween (or for any other day of the week) right now is the perfect time. Grab this $60 gift card for only $50 and stock up on everything during the retailer’s huge Great Fall Sale. 150+ items are marked down 30-60% off, which means that gift card will go far (and you’ll save $10).

$15 is solid price for 30 ounce YETI-style tumbler by itself. But it’s a fantastic deal for one that includes stainless steel straws, a lid, and a detachable handle.

Every modem rental fee you pay to your ISP is padding for their bottom line, and a total rip-off for you. Fortunately, you can buy your own modem for a relatively small upfront cost, and knock a few bucks off your monthly bill.

There used to be a general consensus that Motorola’s SB6141 was the best modem for most cable internet subscribers, but the newer SB6183 is supports double the maximum download speeds (686mbps), which is important for future-proofing purposes, if nothing else. If you don’t mind buying a refurb, $50 is the best price we’ve ever seen.

Normally, TUMI luggage will run you into the $500s and even more. But with Nordstrom Rack’s sale, you can get your own TUMI carry on, backpack, messenger bag, and luggage for hundreds off list price. I’m not talking a couple hundred, here. You could stand to save almost $400 on certain styles.

Timbuk2 Commute and Command Bags, 30% off with code KINJA30, free shipping, expires 10/21, excludes these colors: colors Nautical/Adobe, Currant, and Gunmetal/Adobe.

Timbuk2’s Commute and Command lines of messengers bags were voted your favorite in the category by a significant margin. This week you can get them for 30% cheaper, as well as their backpack variants with code KINJA30.

The headline feature on Timbuk2’s Command Backpacks is their TSA-compliant laptop and tablet access, because any reduction of a pain point of air travel is always welcome. Lined pockets can be used to safely store your smartphone or sunglasses, and air mesh padding mitigates your rage sweating as you make your way through security.

Many of those same great features come to the messenger bags, along with additions like side-entry pockets for easy access, luggage passthrough straps, and of course a plethora of internal organization options.

We’ve posted a few deals on Halloween candy over the last few weeks, but if you’ve held out so far, or already ate all the candy you promised to save for trick or treaters, you can take 20% off various Mars candies, or 25% off Hershey products today, courtesy of Amazon.

Note: Listed prices don’t include the discount; you’ll see the final total at checkout.

Settlers of Catan is one of those games that everyone should have on their shelves, and Amazon’s marked it down to $32 today. That’s within a few cents of the lowest price Amazon’s ever listed. Unfortunately, they won’t trade it to you for two wheats; I asked.

The recent release of the PS4 Slim has created the first real wave of actual PS4 discounts we’ve ever seen, as long as you don’t mind buying the larger, but otherwise mostly identical, original model. This particular listing doesn’t include any games, but $240 is the best get-in-the-door price we’ve ever seen on the PS4.

Xbox Live Gold discounts don’t come around as often as they used to, so if your membership is due to expire in the near future, grab another year for $40 on eBay today.

Sugru is right up there with binder clips and the Raspberry Pi in Lifehacker’s pantheon of must-have gear, and you can stock up today with eight multicolor packs from Amazon for just $11, or eight white packs for $10, the best prices we’ve ever seen on the stuff.

Inateck 1′ USB-A to USB-C Cable, $4 with code A4VCUQWE | 3′ Cable, $5 with code 3QLDWHAU

Someday in the not-too-distant future, Every USB port will be USB-C. But until that day arrives, owners of USB-C powered devices will want to keep a cache of USB-A to C cables handy to pull a charge off of legacy chargers. Today on Amazon, Inateck will sell you a 1′ cable for $4, or a 3.3′ cable for $5. Just note the promo codes below.

RAVPower makes some of the most popular and reliable charging gear on the market, and its 550A car jump starter is one of the best deals we’ve ever seen on a product with that much power.

We’ve seen cheaper jump starter battery packs in the past, but very few can crank a 5L gas engine. This model also doubles as a 14,000mAh USB battery pack for your phone, and can also recharge itself in the car via an included 12V charger.

This hard-sided headphone case is designed to fit popular cans like Audio Technica’s ATH-M50x, certain models of Beats, Sony’s MDRs and more. Assuming you spent $100 or more on your headphones, I’d say it’s definitely worth $20 to keep them safe in your bag. Other than a very brief $10 deal, this is the best price we’ve ever seen.

2-Pack Microfiber Wash Mitts, $7 with code 3W2LX39V

These microfiber mitts are great for washing your car or dusting around the house, but they could also come in handy on Halloween for terrifying children as you hand out candy. They’re worth $7 either way, in my opinion.

X-Chef French Press, $18 with code 4GM7CWF

French press is your favorite way to make coffee, and it’ll be an even more aesthetically pleasing process with this 100% stainless steel press for just $18.

We’ve seen less expensive french presses before, but if you prefer this model’s shiny and simple design, $18 ought to perk you up.

You might not have an immediate need for a pack of multicolored Sharpies, but they’re great to keep stocked in your home office, and Amazon’s currently selling a 12-pack for just $5 (as an add-on item).

There’s not a whole lot to say here; it’s a bamboo cutting board, it looks nice, and it’s $10 (as an add-on item). Pair it with a good knife, and get cooking.

40% off your entire order with the code FORME and the pin 7425

Use the code FORME and the pin 7425 at Lands’ End and get 40% off your entire order. This includes all the trousers, button-downs, shift dresses, sweaters, and coats you could possibly want or need. Maybe get two of everything while you’re at it. But you’d better hurry, because today is the last day of the sale.

Ready to experience meat in a whole new way? You can pick up the newest Wi-Fi version of Anova’s top-selling Sous Vide immersion circulator for $169, or the older Bluetooth model for $129. Note that the Wi-Fi model is the newer 900W model, rather than the old 800W version.

Lifehacker has a great explainer on Sous-Vide cooking for you to check out, but the basic idea is that you seal the food in plastic bags, and then cook it in precisely heated water over a longer period of time. It sounds weird, but trust me when I say that it works like magic.

Every time we post this, we get some snark about the Wi-Fi connectivity, so just know that it’s optional. If you connect your phone, you can find a recipe via Anova’s app, and automatically program the cooker with one tap, but you certainly don’t need to use it.

Even by Kinja Deals standards, $11 is a ridiculously good price for an IPX7 water-resistant Bluetooth speaker. This is perfect if you like to sing in the shower, or just want to catch up on your podcast backlog.

We’ve seen better deals from time to time on Instant Pot pressure cookers, but both of these models are $10 off their usual price right now on Amazon.

Pressure cookers can seriously speed up your dinner prep, but just this week, our readers also said that Instant Pots were their favorite slow cookers as well.

Continuing its tireless pursuit of perfecting everyconceivablecommodity gadget in your home, Anker recently released a new line of essential oil diffusers and humidifiers with built-in accent lights, and they’re offering an all-time low price on the 25ml model today. Even if you don’t add any scented oils, this will also work as a humidifier as dry winter air moves in.

Finally, someone made the Glow Bowl, but for everywhere else in your home. This motion-sensing light strip is billed as an under-bed night light, but you could just as easily attach it under your bathroom counter, along a railing, beneath your baby’s crib, or anywhere else you might need to venture in the middle of the night. For a limited time, you can get one for just $20 with code SJMFQK08.

Anyone who comes here often knows we see a lot of deals on copper string lights, but $5 really is an insanely great price for two 60-LED strands. Just note that these are USB-powered, so you’ll need some form of USB charger to power them up. Plus, promo code OULHJUE6 should work on all four colors.
