$70 for a Logitech Harmony remote is a great deal on its face, but the real reason to buy this model is the included Harmony Home Hub.
The Hub allows you to use your iPhone, Android device, or even an Amazon Echo to control everything a Harmony remote can (which is basically any piece of home theater gear you can think of). So even when you inevitably lose the included remote behind the couch cushions, you’ll still have multiple ways to take control of all of your home theater gear.
Inexpensive truly wireless headphones are finally starting to become a thing, and Smartomi’s Q5s are just $21 today on Amazon with code 3TOJDKAW, one of the best prices we’ve seen on any true wireless earbuds worth considering. Unlike AirPods, they’ll only last about 3 hours on a charge, and they don’t come with a wireless recharging case, but hey, not having a wire around your neck is worth something.
Whether you spend a lot of time camping, or just want to be prepared for
the coming apocalypse an extended power outage, this 12W solar panel has an 8,000mAh battery built right in, so you can set it up during the day, and recharge your phone at night.

The RoboVac 11c appears to be the same RoboVac you know and love, but with the addition of Wi-Fi so you can control it with your smartphone or Alexa.
That brings us to the Genie, which is basically Anker’s take on the Echo Dot, but with an improved speaker, Like the Dot, it has Amazon’s Alexa assistant built right in, and you can control it from across the room with nothing but your voice. Shane got a few demo units this week, and you can read his impressions here.
If you haven’t put two and two together yet, these products are designed to work together. If you’re laying on the couch playing Rime, and don’t feel like getting up to vacuum, just yell “Alexa, ask RoboVac to start cleaning,” and the RoboVac will do your bidding. We’re living in the future.
For a limited time, if you add both products to your cart and use code KINJA823, you’ll get a whopping $54 discount at checkout. That gets you the Genie for free, plus a solid little discount on the RoboVac as well.
Football season is just around the corner, and you can watch a ton of college games, plus local NFL games and Sunday Night football for free with a cheap HDTV antenna. AmazonBasics’ amplified and unamplified leaf-style antennas are both on sale right now, if you don’t already own one. I use the amplified version myself, and it’s great. If you need help deciding Lifehacker has a guide to help you out.
In addition to a fresh new design, the PowerCore Elite (previously called the PowerCore II) includes three high speed USB charging ports with a whopping 30W shared between them, plus dual 10W microUSB inputs, allowing you to recharge the entire brick in as little as six hours, which is extremely impressive for a battery of this size.
Years later the Sonos PLAYBAR is still the best sound bar for most people, and still just as rarely discounted. Take advantage of this opportunity to snag a free $40 gift card and six months of Music Unlimited if you’ve been in the market for one. Shane has loved his since 2013.
Sometimes, I’m still amazed that you can get a 55″ TV for $400, let alone one with 4K resolution, HDR10 support, built-in Roku software, and the ability to use your phone as a remote.
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!

I know we normally dismiss YETI products as overpriced, but at least for today, their Hopper 30 soft cooler is down to just $175, one of the first times we’ve ever seen it below $200. This thing can hold 24 cans at a 2:1 ice to can ratio, and keep everything cold for days on end.
This is a Gold Box deal though, so it’ll be gone before the ice melts. The last few YETI deals we’ve seen have sold out within hours, and we don’t expect this to be any different.
As a rule, most seats you spend time in during the day don’t have enough lumbar support, but that’s easy to fix with this $15 adjustable cushion set. This includes two separate cushions that can be used in various positions and combinations depending on the type of chair you’re in.
Our readers have bought a ton of Ninja Blenders over the years, and now, their Auto iQ system is marked down to $70 on Amazon for a refurb, or $20 less than buying it new. The Nutri Ninja Auto iQ features a 1000 watt motor, three different size blending glasses, and even intelligent blending programs that take the guesswork out of smoothie making.
I’m fully convinced that everyone needs more bags in their life. eBags makes everything from packing cubes and toiletry kits, to luggage and backpacks, and they’re basically all 20% off on Amazon right now. There are over 60 bags to choose from, so find some place to go and grab a new bag to bring your stuff with you.
Just make sure you see the “Buy 1, get 20% off” promo on the product to make sure you’re getting the discount.
Nothing says back to school like cork boards, and Amazon’s taking an extra 25% off several models from Board Dudes, including some with integrated magnetic whiteboards. Prices start at just $7, but note that you won’t see the discount until checkout.
Diatomaceous earth is one of the most effective weapons we have against bugs, and Amazon will sell you a 10 pound bag of the stuff for $20, a rare discount from the usual $22. Despite the unspeakable things it does to bugs in your yard, it’s actually food grade, and completely non-toxic for humans and pets.
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 $14 with code R4KGYUII, matching an all-time low.
This 54-piece screwdriver set is marketed as a laptop repair kit, but with a snake attachment and tons of bits, it could come in handy for all sorts of repairs in hard-to-reach places.
Anker’s beginning its drive into the automotive accessory space with an affordable new dash cam, and you can race over to Amazon to snag one for $67 with code ANKERVC1, the best price we’ve seen since our exclusive (and short-lived) $64 launch deal.
I test drove the Anker Roav DashCam, and you can see my full impressions here. But to give you the cliffnotes, it shoots 1080p, its space-saving design makes it essentially invisible to the driver, and it even includes Wi-Fi to transfer clips to your phone, which is hard to find in a sub-$100 dash cam.

Before you head out on your next hike, be sure to pick up one of these affordable hydration packs. Both come with the same 2L water bladder, but the more expensive model has a larger backpack.

How It Works
Measure and customize from home…
Follow the directions on Indochino’s site to submit your measurements and customize your shirts. Once the shirts arrive, if anything doesn’t fit quite right, Indochino will provide directions for your local tailor, along with a $75 credit to cover their work. If for whatever reason your tailor cannot resolve the issues, Indochino will remake your shirts. Shipping and return shipping are free.
You do not have to go through the measurement and customization process to lock in this discount. You can checkout now and submit later. This option also makes it easy to gift a suit.
If you live near a showroom…
Purchase your shirts online with our discount and take your receipt/account info into an Indochino showroom. They’ll do your measurements, walk you through your customization options, and have your shirts delivered to the showroom.
Some wallets do cards well. Others excel at cash. Basically none are good for coins. But Slide is remarkably adept at all three.
Cash: Slide actually has a metal money clip built right into the fold, which keeps your bills secure without the bulk that comes with a full-width cash pocket.
Cards: You get three card slots, all of which can hold four cards comfortably, or up to 5 with a little elbow grease. You can access the two side pockets without even opening the wallet, but the pull tab pocket is truly ingenious. Just give the leather tab on the top of the wallet a little tug, and your most-used cards pop out for even easier access. Push them back in, and the tab recedes with them.
Coins: The coin pocket on the outside has a simple-but-effective interior flap of leather that acts as a lid. Turn Slide upside down, shake it around, and your coins will still stay inside.
Slide sent me a demo unit to check out, and I can confirm that all the features work as advertised, and the leather feels quite nice. There are five days left to get in on the Kickstarter for about 36% off MSRP, so this might be a good time to get out your wallet.

I haven’t played Madden in a few years, but I guess it’s a micro transaction-based card game now? Cool.
Twitch and EA SPORTS are teaming up to give Twitch Prime Members at least an 83 rated Madden Ultimate Team Legend and Collectible every week. That’s 25 Twitch Prime Legends throughout the season. Twitch Prime Legends are retired NFL players like Reggie White that players can add to their Ultimate Team rosters, and Twitch Prime Legend Collectibles can be used to increase the stats of Twitch Prime Legends. We have kicked off with an 85 rated Reggie White and + 5 Collectibles, which means your readers can start their Madden Season with a 90 rated Legend immediately.
In order to unlock Legends and Legend Collectibles in the game, players traditionally need to either earn Packs through gameplay, or purchase them for a chance to unlock new Legends each week. Twitch Prime Members are guaranteed to unlock at least one Legend and at least one Collectible each week, without earning or purchasing Packs. This means that Twitch Prime members can upgrade their team, and level up their best players all season long for free as part of their Twitch Prime membership.
Dishonored 2 wasn’t without its flaws, but if you enjoy first person stealth games, it’s absolutely worth picking up for $25, an all-time low.
Humble’s celebrating QuakeCon with a sale on all your favorite Bethesda games today, including titles from the Fallout, Doom, Prey, Dishonored, and Elder Scrolls series (including the really old games), just for starters. This isn’t a Humble bundle; you’ll pay a specific price for each title, but a portion of the proceeds still go to charity.
I’ll never understand how, in 2017, Microsoft still ships Xbox One controllers without built-in rechargeable batteries, but at least there’s an easy fix. Get two battery packs and a charging cradle for $17 today with promo code YS8SDUD2. You don’t have to use the cradle if you don’t want to; any microUSB cable will do the job.
If jump scares and body horror are the only things that make you feel anything anymore, you’re in luck! The latest Humble Bundle features features up to eight spooky games for great low prices, including Dead Age, Alien: Isolation, and Dead By Daylight. As always, you can name your own price, but some games are locked behind certain price tiers.
