Top Tech Deals
As you’d expect from any high-end TV these days, that gets you a 4K panel and Dolby Vision HDR, but OLED technology means the blacks will be far richer, and the colors more vibrant than any LCD-based screen you can buy. It’ll still cost you, but your eyes will tell you it was worth it.
If you’ve been itching to get an Amazon Echo (and you really should get one), but balk at the $180 price tag, Amazon’s offering up certified refurbs for $80 right now, by far the best price we’ve ever seen.
Amazon’s certified refurbished products are all inspected and tested to work like new, and include the same one-year warranty you’d get with a brand new product, so there’s really no downside to going this route.
The Qi charging pads that Apple sells in the Apple Store cost $60. This one from RAVPower works just as well, props up your phone like a stand, and is only $13. So whether you just got a new iPhone, or have owned Qi-enabled Android phones for years, this is a great price.
When I was in school, a flash drive with 128 MEGAbytes would have cost a lot more than $28. Now get off my lawn.
Anker’s PowerLine and PowerLine+ cables were already our readers’ favorite charging cables, but the new PowerLine II line is even stronger, comes with a hassle-free lifetime warranty, and is a few bucks off on Amazon today.
We wrote more about the cables over on Gear, but the long and short of it is that between the extreme durability and the lifetime warranty, it’s quite possible that this will be the last Lightning cables you ever have to buy. The 3′ model is the one on sale this week.
Whether you ordered a new iPhone 8 or 8 Plus, or you’re still rocking a phone from the iPhone 7 generation, these discounted Anker cases will keep your handset safe.
Whether your current mouse is giving you chronic wrist pain, or you just want to try something different, this 4.2 star rated wireless ergonomic vertical mouse from Anker is only $14 today (with promo code DEALSUBA), or $6 less than usual. In addition to the clever design, it even comes with three adjustable DPI settings and forward/back buttons, which are pretty rare at this price level.
Want to hook up your USB-C-only MacBook to a TV, projector, or certain monitors? This USB-C to HDMI dongle will get the job done at up to 4K/60, which is as good as it gets.
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!
Top Home Deals
Once you start keeping your liquids in vacuum-insulated stainless steel, every other drinking vessel seems like a relic of the past.
Today on Amazon, Alpha Armur vacuum insulated tumblers are on sale in the Gold Box. The best deal of the bunch is a 36 ounce bottle with a wide mouth screw top for $20. When sealed, it’ll keep ice frozen for about a day, and the big handle makes it easy to carry or attach to a bag.
Smaller 20 and 30 ounce tumblers with regular drinking lids are on sale as well. We often see similar products from other brands for a few bucks cheaper (especially in the case of the larger one), but these are still a lot less expensive than YETIs.
If you don’t have a tire gauge in your glove box, you can fix that for just $8 today. Even if your car has tire pressure monitoring built-in, that’s usually a binary system: Your tire needs air or it doesn’t. But even being off a few PSI in either direction can hurt your gas mileage, and cause your tire to wear out sooner.
Whether you’re packing lunch for your kid, or bringing your own to work, this Rubbermaid kit makes it easy. Both the food containers and the bag to hold them are on sale right now, so you can spring for the real Oreos at the store, and not <wretches> Newman O’s.
Everyone should own a slow cooker, and furthermore, everyone should own a programmable slow cooker. If you’re going to be at work for nine hours, but your recipe only calls for six hours of cooking, these will automatically switch to warm mode at the time of your choosing, so you can walk in the door and enjoy a delicious dinner.
A good hammer drill/driver will come in handy for basically every home improvement project you can imagine, and Amazon’s top seller is down to its lowest price of $99 today.
Update: You can get an impact driver kit for the same price now too.
The Shark Navigator Lift-Away is your favorite affordable vacuum cleaner, but it’s the step-up Professional model that’s on sale today for $150. Compared to the standard Lift-Away, the Professional includes a longer power cord, a better carpet brush, and a microfiber dusting attachment. It doesn’t suck, is what I’m saying, except in the ways it should. Today’s price is one of the best we’ve seen, and roughly $50 less than usual.
Update: They’re back! Grab The Genealogy of Wine, The Cocktail Chart of Film & Literature, Splendid Structures of New York City, The Chart of Famous Eyewear, and A Plotting of Fiction Genres for just $10 each with the code 5PRINTS410.
If your spring cleaning doesn’t involve revamping your home goods, what are you even doing? Add some awesome infographics to your walls with these $10 prints from Pop Chart Lab. Choose from five prints (A Visual Compendium of Hockey Jerseys, The Charted Sandwich Board, A Schematic of Structures, A Visual Compendium of Typewriters, and Exceptional Expressions of Espresso) and enter the code $10PRINTS at checkout.
You’ll have to find a way to display them, though, as the poster rails and framing aren’t included.
Robotic vacuums are so affordable now, you can basically own a fleet of them, and you can get a Wi-Fi controlled model for just $160 today.
While it lacks the brand recognition of a Roomba, and we can’t personally vouch for them like we can for the Eufy RoboVac 11, this ECOVACS vacuum has solid reviews, and are insanely affordable today at $160. You can even control it from your phone, which is very rare in this price range.
You don’t need to buy a new car to get a backup camera (which is life-changing, by the way), you just need $82, and a few minutes to run the wires. This model attaches to your license plate, and runs to a special rear view mirror that attaches in front of your existing mirror.
While supplies last, Amazon will sell you a 10.5″pan for $15, within about a buck of its all-time low price. Not bad considering it should last the rest of your life, as long as you take good care of it.
Speaking of hot, the handle gets VERY hot so I would also recommend one of these.
Enjoy $9.50 off 12 packs of Perky Jerky with code 9SPICYPERKS, because there’s no better way to kick off the weekend than knowing a box of jerky will be at your doorstep soon.
They’re offering 4 flavors with both beef and turkey options.
Update 9/22: Now down to just $139 with promo code GARDEN30.
This $154 Masterbuilt electric smoker (with code
WAREHOUSE30 GARDEN30) 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 easily the best we’ve seen, so you’ll have more money left over to spend on delicious, delicious meat.
My cat is an indoor cat and terrified of the outdoors. But if she ever wanted to venture outside, I would feel better buying something like this to give her a warm, dry safe haven if she ever needed it.
The Kitty House features heated and unheated options with sturdy roof to wick away any rain. Plus, it has different color options for kitties with discerning taste.
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.
The kit 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.
The Dyson V6 cordless vacuum is ideal for cleaning rugs, hardwood floors, car seats, ceilings, shelves…pretty much anything really, and you can get a refurb of the Animal version on Dyson’s official eBay store today for $185 with promo code PSAVE15NOW, the best deal we’ve seen. Compared to the standard V6, this model has 75% more brush head power to lift pet hair and other debris out of carpets and furniture. I bought it from Amazon about a month ago, and absolutely love it.
$40 gets you the Yi Dash Cam today, down from its usual $50 with promo code YIDASH40. The key feature here is 1080p/60 recording, compared to the 1080/30 you normally see in this price range. That means you have twice as many frames to get a clear shot of a license plate. Its f/1.8 aperture, 165 degree FOV, and 2.7″ screen are nothing to sneeze at either.
The SmartCharge is a Bluetooth FM transmitter that takes the Bluetooth signal from your phone, and rebroadcasts it the FM radio station of your choice, giving you truly wireless audio and handsfree calls in older vehicles that don’t have Bluetooth built in. And since this is an Anker brand, you also get two high speed USB charging ports.
We’ve seen plenty of products that do this before, but the SmartCharge has one more trick up its sleeve: a car finder. Once you turn off your car and Bluetooth disconnects, the Roav app will drop a pin on a map, and help you find your vehicle later. You probably don’t need that feature very often, but it could come in handy on confusing city streets, or sprawling stadium parking lots.

Timex makes one of your favorite affordable watch, the Weekender. And, it’s that about time you got yourself a decent timepiece that you aren’t afraid to wear every day. Timex is knocking 20% off every style of Weekender, from the Chrono and Chrono Oversized to Timex x Peanuts, with the code WEEKENDER20.
You deserve a massage. No, you deserve massages any time you damn well want them. So do yourself a solid and score a deal on one of Naipo’s top-selling electric massage products. Just note the promo codes below, and take a load off (your wallet).
Zappos is basically a one-stop shoe destination already, but right now, they’re having an actual sale, marking down thousands of sandals for the end of the season. Heels, flats, thong, slides, all kinds of styles from brands like Tevas, Nike, Birkenstock, Sam Edelman, Keen, and more. Stock up for next season while you can.
Our readers have bought tens of thousands of pairs of ExOfficio’s quick-drying mesh boxer briefs, but if their sky high cost (you’d be lucky to get a single pair for $15) has scared you off, here’s a budget-friendly alternative with great reviews.
David Archy’s performance boxer briefs use a similar nylon/spandex combination as ExOfficio (they say polyamide and Lycra to be fancy, but it’s the same thing), and Amazon reviewers say they compare very favorably. The biggest difference: Price. While supplies last, you can get three pairs for $22, about $4 less than usual.
Just note that the product page includes mesh, stripe, and solid options, with decreasing sweat wicking abilities, respectively. Get the mesh if you see any in your size, is my advice.
No matter your sports supplement of choice, you can probably save $20 on it today on Amazon.
Dozens of energy supplements, protein products, and vitamins are included in this sale. All you have to do is fill your cart with $60 worth of eligible products (shipped and sold by Amazon), and you’ll automatically see a $20 discount at checkout. There’s a lot to sort through here, so leave your suggestions and favorite products in the comments.
When it comes to having a corner on the market, nothing really compares to Nike. And right now, use the code SUMMER20 and take an extra 20% off their sale styles for both men and women. Everything you could need for a good workout wardrobe is included, from apparel, to sneakers, to gear.

Amazon’s running a Marvel digital comic sale that’s bigger than any Avengers movie today, with literally thousands of titles marked down to just a few bucks, in most cases. You’ll find everything from the Guardians of the Galaxy to Darth Vader to Deadpool to Captain America in there, and every hero in between, so there’s never been a better time to stock your digital shelves.
The selection is overwhelming (400 Amazon pages, or over 6,000 titles!), so we’ll drop a few safe bets below, but definitely leave your own suggestions in the comments.
Update: With apologies to anyone that bought this for $90, it has now dropped to $85, matching the deals we typically see on eBay.
We see 15% iTunes gift card discounts on eBay from time to time, but today Amazon’s offering a 10% discount on $100 gift cards, the first iTunes credit discount they’ve ever offered, at least to my knowledge.
Obviously, 10% < 15%, but if you have some iTunes gift cards you want to use, or the Amazon Prime Store Card which gets you 5% back on Amazon purchases, this could make sense. I’m going to buy this and spend every cent on iOS 11 AR games.
Top Gaming Deals
$8 is cheaper than a lot of standard sized mouse pads, but today, that gets you a massive 2.5′ x 1′ model that can accommodate your keyboard as well. So luxurious! Just be sure to use promo code BJUNAR55 at checkout to save a couple bucks.
NBA 2K18 is out, and while they skirted Amazon’s 20% preorder discount by only offering digital versions, you can get a disc for $48 right now on eBay.
Humble’s second Very Positive Bundle is built around one core concept, and it’s a good one: Positive user reviews on Steam. All eight games here boast at least 88% positive ratings from players, so there isn’t a stinker in the bunch, even if you may not have heard of every title.
As always, different games are locked behind different price tiers, but this one has a special $80 fourth tier which includes Middle Earth Shadow of War and a Shadow of War t-shirt.
