I didn’t know it was possible to improve upon the handheld white board, but Boogie Board might have done it. This $23 gadget (an all-time low price, by the way) includes a stylus to draw on its LCD display, and will keep its image indefinitely without any power until you hit the erase button, and of course, the “pen” will never dry out.
Best Buy’s running a 50 hour sale on tons of TVs, Apple products, speaker systems, and a lot more this weekend. Some of our top picks are included in the list of deals at the bottom of this post, but head over to Best Buy to check out the entire sale.
Sound bars are all the rage right now, but if you want to build a home theater system piecemeal, like in the olden days, Amazon’s running a great deal today on Klipsch bookshelf speakers, today only.
These speakers have only been out since July, but they already have a 4.3 star review average from over 130 customers, and $270 is an all-time low by over $100. Just note that this is a Gold Box deal, meaning this price is only available today, or until sold out.
If the bottom of your bag looks like a Radioshack going out of business sale, this $8 travel case from AmazonBasics can keep your memory cards, battery packs, charging cables, and other small electronics organized.
Until fairly recently, external hard drives over 2TB required an extra power cord, but not so with this ultra-portable 4TB WD My Passport, now marked down to an all-time low $110.
Anker’s SoundCore blew away the competition to take the title of your favorite affordable Bluetooth speaker, and today, you can pick one up for $27 with code ALBCXN3Y. That’s a couple bucks more than it was on Prime Day, but otherwise one of the best prices we’ve seen.
For about $7 more though, you can opt for the upgraded water-resistant version instead. In my experience, they sound nearly identical, and they both sport the same incredible battery life, so you can choose solely based on your need for water resistance.
VPNs are in the news these days, and with good reason. So if you’re curious to sign up and start protecting your browsing history and personal data (or, you know, getting around websites’ geoblocks), NordVPN charges less per month than a typical trip to Starbucks.
NordVPN has long been one of the most popular and reliable VPN providers out there, and if you sign up for a one-year membership, promo code VIP70 will drop your annual price from $69 to $48. If you’re sure you want to commit, use this link instead to get a special two year plan for $79 with code 2YSpecial2017. Lifehacker has recommended Nord in some previous guides, but if you have any firsthand experience with the service, sound off in the comments!

The RoboVac 11 from Eufy (a division of Anker) is one of your favorite robotic vacuums, and in my own testing, it’s every bit as good—and far quieter—than my Roomba. So if it’s been on your radar, our readers can save $33 today with promo code KINJA815.
Note: This sale ends this weekend, so don’t miss out!
The final price of $187 isn’t the best deal we’ve seen on this (it went down to $150 for a few glorious hours in May), but it’s still over $100 less than the comparable Roomba, so if it’s been on your shopping list for awhile, this is a solid chance to save.

Our deals researcher, Corey, has one and had some nice things to say in Slack:
Nice things to say about it – massive, soft and comfortable on your wrists, doesn’t slowly squirm and migrate across your desk, as precise as hard mousepads I’ve used.
