There are only a handful of USB battery packs out there with USB-C Power Delivery, and this is the lowest price we’ve ever seen on one of them.
$56 gets you RAVPower’s 26,800mAh battery pack, complete with a 30W USB-C port that can power a MacBook or Nintendo Switch at basically full speed, plus two regular USB ports as well. We posted a deal on a very similar Anker battery pack recently that cost more (though it did come with a USB-C Power Delivery wall charger, no small thing), and either one would be a great companion on a long flight.
If you’re still listening to your TV through its built-in speakers, listen up: This highly-rated Sony sound bar and wireless subwoofer for just $120 right now, or about $80 less than usual.
In addition to delivering rich audio from your TV, the sound bar includes Bluetooth so you can stream music from your phone on the fly, and even NFC for easy device pairing. Today’s deal also happens to be the lowest price we’ve ever seen on a non-refurb, so don’t hesitate to pick this up if you’re in the market for a better aural experience from your home theater.
There are two pages of deals here spanning nearly all of TP-Link’s product line. A few of our favorite deals are below, but be sure to head over to Amazon to see the full selection. Just remember that these deals are only available today, so lock in your orders before Amazon pulls the plug.
If Apple made a monitor stand, it would probably look a lot like this. It would also probably cost about $200, instead of $22.
SONOS pioneered the multi-room audio category, and now Alexa can do it too, but Aukey’s solution looks like a great, affordable alternative.
These AudioLink speakers feature dual 10W drivers and two passive subwoofers, so they should be plenty loud. They’re also IPX5 water resistant, so you could probably keep one outside. The real kicker though? They can run off a built-in battery for over seven hours on a charge, so you can rearrange them at will if you’re throwing a party.
They communicate with each other over a 5.8GHz Wi-Fi connection, so you won’t have to connect them to your home Wi-Fi or fiddle with a bunch of settings. If you live in a mansion, that could be a problem, but their ~100 foot range should be more than enough for most setups. Just use promo code AUKEYSK6 at checkout to save $15.
iPhone and iPad owners can never own enough Lightning cables, especially when you can get two for $9. As an aside, Apple still charges $19 for a single cable.
Sure, the new iPhones have Qi charging, but you can’t really use the phone while it’s sitting on a charging pad, and an old fashioned cable will still charge it a lot faster.
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.
Synology makes some of the most popular NAS enclosures on the market, and this lightning fast 4-bay model is on sale for an all-time low $499 on Amazon today, both shipped and sold by Amazon, and from Synology. That’s about $50 less than usual, and a great deal for all your file hoarders out there.
Need some drives to go with it? WD Reds are designed for the always-on environment they’ll encounter in a NAS.
Apple’s MacBooks only have two ports these days: USB-C and a headphone jack. And while USB-C is definitely a good thing, the world might not be quite ready to ditch all of our old connectors. Luckily, this $30 dongle can turn one of those USB-C ports into four standard USB ports, an HDMI port, and a USB-C passthrough for power.
They even come with the microphone and in-line controls very similar to Apple headphones. Plus, with a 4-star review from over 800 customers, it’s worth giving them a try.
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 $25 right now on Amazon, the best price we’ve seen since Prime Day.
I’ve owned this thing for over a year, and I feel like I never charge it. If anything, its quoted 24 hours of battery life is a conservative estimate. It also sounds fantastic for a speaker of its size.
It’s new iPhone season, and whether you’ve already preordered an 8, are anxiously awaiting the X, or are just sticking with your current phone for another year, some of your favorite Anker accessories are on sale right now, as well as brand new cases from Anker’s Karapax brand.
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!

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.
Today only, Amazon’s selling the 4.4 star rated Camco Deluxe Grilling Table for just $49, after clipping a whopping $32 coupon.
The table expands from its suitcase-sized carrying case into a four-tier surface that’s perfect for camping, tailgating, or just grilling in your backyard. You might not use this thing all the time, but buying it now sure beats paying $80 for it a few days before your next barbecue.
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.
Our readers have bought thousands of OxyLED’s T-02 motion-sensing light strips over the years, but if you’ve found them to be to annoying to charge, the new T-04 looks like a great upgrade.
Like the T-02, the T-04 can attach to basically any surface via the included adhesive strips, and will automatically light up when it detects motion in the dark. The main difference is the battery: rather than charging AAAs or plugging in a microUSB cable, the T-04’s battery pack is fully detachable, and plugs directly into any USB charging port. I have a couple of these set up around my apartment, and they work extremely well.
Update: Sold out
Spend $16 on a pan you’re going to have for the rest of your life and then pass down to your grandkids in your will. We have mentioned the magic of cast iron many times, the Lodge brand is one of the best.
At $16 today, that’s just about as low as the price goes on Amazon so might as well buy them while they’re hot!
Speaking of hot, the handle get VERY hot so I would also recommend one of these.
I prefer steaming over ironing – it’s faster, easier, and you don’t need to bust out the ironing board. This $30 travel steamer heats up in 40 seconds, allowing you steam out all those wrinkles in no time. Plus, skipping the dry cleaner every once in a while and steaming instead can make your clothes last longer.
Normally selling for at least $34, the $30 price tag today is the lowest we’ve seen.
$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.
We all know that hang-drying clothes is better for them in the long run than using a dryer, but it’s just such a pain to find places to hang them all. This $23 rack looks to solve that with two tiers of drying racks, built-in clothes hangers, and a fold-up design that allows it to fit into the corner beside your washing machine when not in use.
Robotic vacuums are so affordable and ubiquitous now, it almost makes sense to start building a fleet of them.
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 ILIFE A4S vacuum has very good reviews, and is insanely affordable today at $144 with promo code 6GNQOI9X. Now you’ll have more time to clean the bathroom!
1050 lumens is very bright for a flashlight, and $27 is a great price for one that powerful. It’s especially notable though for a flashlight with IP68 water resistance (basically, you can dive with it) and an included rechargeable battery. Just don’t point it in anyone’s face.
Look, it’s not a Herman Miller or anything, but a desk chair with 360 degree swiveling, height adjustment, and recline for $43 is an insanely good deal if you’re looking to outfit your home office. You can get it in all black, or choose from three different accent colors if you have bad taste.
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.
We’re getting ready to round up the countless and ever-improving ways to make coffee on the go or in the woods, but until LUME, the most important product in that process, the grinder, was literally a hand crank.
LUME is a portable, USB rechargeable, conical ceramic burr coffee grinder that doubles as a flashlight, and there are still preorders available at just $59 as of this writing. Total no-brainer/godsend for coffee drinking travelers and campers.
You’ve listed these AmazonBasics Velvet Suit Hangers as one of your all-time favorite hangers. They lined with velvet to keep slinky shirts from slipping and they’re cheap. Really cheap. Priced at just $18 today for a 50-pack, that’s the lowest price we’ve ever seen outside of some short-lived coupons. This is perfect timing for a closet revamp as you move your fall wardrobe out of storage.
Shopping for pillows can be a snoozefest but pillows are something that should be replaced every once in a while. If you can’t remember the last time you bought some new ones, Amazon has got you covered today.
At $25 for a 2-pack with promo code CMYD7QKK, they’re a good deal for hypoallergenic, breathable pillows that have the right amount of stuffing for everyone from stomach to side sleepers.

While Anthro’s ability to create unique, interesting clothing is admirable, the prices can sometimes be…daunting. That’s why your best bet on adding something different to your closet is to hit up their sale section when they throw an additional discount in there. Right now, take 30% off everything that’s on sale, which they just stocked with a bunch of new things.
If you can’t find the time to get to the gym every day, this under-desk elliptical lets you squeeze in some light exercise while you fill out your TPS reports. This typically sells for well over $100 on Amazon, and today’s $63 deal (after clipping the 20% coupon) is the best price we’ve ever seen by about $12.
We’ve seen several deals on these electric shoulder massagers, but this one is somewhat unique in that it’s battery powered, so you can use it outdoors, on a plane, or anywhere around your house where there isn’t a convenient power outlet nearby. We’ve posted a similar product from Naipo a few times before, but this one has twice as many shiatsu nodes (eight vs. four), so it’ll feel like you have a small army of masseuses tending to your knots.
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.
You’ve probably seen True & Co. across various social media platforms, telling you to take their fit quiz and to find your perfect size. Try them out and find a bra that really fits you during their Hump Day Sale. Choose from 12 different bras, all marked down to just $8. They’re all final sale, don’t go above a DD, and they’re all push-up, but if you’re a valiant member of the Itty Bitty Titty Committee, this sale is for you.
Whether you wear TOMS for the ease of never having to tie your shoes or just dig the style, this is one deal you should take advantage of. They’re having their End of Season Sale, with an extra 25% off select styles with promo code EXTRA25. Now you have a real reason to throw out your old, gross ones.
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.
BioLite, maker of our favorite camping stoves and lighting, is back with a FirePit we’ve been psyched about since we saw it in action back in December. Their Kickstarter launched today and is already… on fire.
The BioLite FirePit is easy to transport, minimizes smoke, is see-through for maximum fire viewing, uses wood or charcoal, and doubles as a hibachi grill. The FirePit doesn’t recharge your phone with the power of flames like some of BioLite’s other products (at least not directly, but its battery pack does have a USB charger onboard), but its built-in circulation fan does recharge itself using a solar cover, and can optionally be app-controlled.
Kickstarter preorders include that solar cover for free, but about a third of the units available at the $199 level are already gone, so don’t let this one smolder.
The Action Jacket by Jumper Threads is by no means the first packable jacket, but it is feature-packed, designed with the fact that cell phones exist in mind, and an easy recommendation at Kickstarter preorder prices. Plus they have an awesome logo.
The Action Jacket is water repellant, vented, breathable, packable, reflective, adjustable all over, ultralight, and doesn’t skimp on the pockets. We’ve been wearing one off and on for a few weeks, and if your outerwear arsenal is lacking an analog to this, don’t hesitate.
It’s time to start planning your outdoor adventures, and Backcountry is gonna help you out in the gear department. Take advantage of an extra 20% off select styles. Gear, apparel, shoes, and more are all fair game, which means outfitting for your next outdoor adventure just costs you a whole lot less.
Top Media Deals
Whether you’re into food, fashion, fast cars, or anything that doesn’t start with an F, Amazon’s one day magazine sales have you covered. Click here for print subscriptions, or here for digital, all starting at under $4.
Annoyingly, the print page is interspersed with subscriptions that aren’t part of the sale, so just look for Amazon’s “Deal of the Day” badge to make sure you’re getting a good price.
Update: With apologies to anyone that bought this yesterday 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.
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.
Top Gaming Deals
If you’ve entertained any stray thoughts about buying PlayStation VR, today’s the day you want to do it.
$300 gets you the headset and the PS4 camera (though unlike the last time this deal ran, I don’t think you get any bundled games) with promo code PSVRSAVE, while supplies last. For reference, the headset by itself still sells for $349, so this really is an fantastic deal.
Logitech’s G602 is more than enough gaming mouse for most people—we’re talking 250 hour battery life, 11 programmable buttons, and per-user programmable DPI settings—and it can be yours for $35 today, the best price we’ve seen.
I probably wouldn’t expect Nintendo-like supply shortages, but if you want to be absolutely sure to get an Xbox One X at launch, preorders are live now.
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.
