A trio of robotic vacuums, Anker’s new Echo Dot alternative, and the last chance to save 20% on Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle lead off Monday’s best deals from around the web.

Launched under Anker’s home brand, Eufy, the Genie starts at $35- the lowest price so far on Amazon’s analog, the Dot, but today the barrier to entry to the Alexa ecosystem gets even lower at just 30 bucks. Even better, new subscribers to Amazon Music Unlimited get three months free with their Genie purchase.

Since coming out with our readers’ favorite budget action cam, Yi has since added a 4K and 4K+ model to the lineup, but now, they’ve circled back and developed an upgraded version of their entry-level camera.
Compared to the original Yi Action Cam, the Yi Lite adds a 2″ touchscreen, 4K/15FPS recording, and improved 2+ hour battery life. At $80 on sale (compared to a current price of $70 for the original), it’s a no-brainer upgrade for the screen alone, which helps you line up your shots, and also makes it much easier to change the camera’s settings.
Your laptop is one of the most expensive things you own, and it deserves to be treated as such. Rather than throwing it roughshod into your bag, slip it into one of PicasoLabs’ beautiful, hand-stitched, personalized leather sleeves, now on sale for one of the first times ever.
Jesus Diaz raved about an earlier version of these, and interviewed the creator, on Gizmodo a few years ago, if you’d like to know more about the process behind them.
Our exclusive 20% discount applies to the Active series of cases, which are designed for the latest MacBooks, MacBook Pros, and iPads, and utilize special suspenders to keep your device secure while still leaving you access to your charging ports. You even get to pick from multiple colors of leather, and even engrave them with your name for free. Just use promo code KINJA20 at checkout to save.
Note: This promo code is only valid for 500 redemptions.
Even at its usual $69, Google’s Chromecast Ultra is the cheapest 4K and HDR-compatble streaming dongle on the market, and today, you can save an extra $10 by buying it from B&H, with no sales tax outside of New York and New Jersey.
If your phone supports Qi wireless charging, and better yet, if it supports Quick Charge over Qi, we’ve got some deals for you. Both of these pads support wireless fast charging for compatible phones, and the more expensive of the two also props up your phone.
If you’re still wrestling with a terrible inkjet printer at home, do yourself a solid and pick up the reliable Brother HL-2380DW monochrome laser printer today for just $100 today.
While it doesn’t print in color, it more than makes up for that with the ability to spit out 32 pages per minute, duplex printing, and inexpensive toner cartridges that can last for years without being replaced. We’ve posted a lot of Brother deals in the past, and we’ve heard nothing but good things from readers about them. Plus, this particular model has a sterling 4.4 star review average on Amazon, a built-in scanner, and AirPrint and Google Cloud Print support, so it should serve you well for years.
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.
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!

It’s never been easier to outsource vacuuming to a robot, and with today’s Amazon Gold Box, it’s basically never been cheaper, either.
While they lack the brand recognition of Roombas, and we can’t personally vouch for them like we can for the Eufy RoboVac 11, these ECOVACS vacuums have solid reviews, and are insanely affordable.
The $140 Slim model is just over 2″ tall, so it can fit under most furniture that you probably only move to clean under a couple of times per year. It also has Wi-Fi control, which is insane at that price.
For $30 more, the DEEBOT M80 adds an optional wet mopping system for your hard floors, in addition to pulling standard vacuum duties.
And if you really want to splurge, the M88 is also on sale for $249, which adds a tangle-free pet hair brush, smarter pathfinding, and a max cleaning mode that boosts its vacuuming power when the mess demands it.
All three of these deals are all-time low prices, but they’re only available today, and they could very well be cleaned out early.
If your tires are about due for a replacement, Discount Tire Direct is offering up to $100 in Visa gift card rebates (in addition to any manufacturer rebates) when you order four new tires, plus an additional $100 if you order wheels as well, plus an extra $60 on each if you use a Discount Tire credit card. Just enter your make and model, click the options to see tires on promotion, and you’ll see the rebate amount (either $25, $75, or $100) on the right hand side.
You don’t necessarily need to buy a new mattress to get a better night’s sleep: Sometimes, a mattress pad will do, and a great one is on sale in today’s Amazon Gold Box.
Unlike most mattress pads, these are stuffed with Revoloft synthetic fill, which should feel a lot like down, but without the associated allergies and poking feathers. Prices range from just $55-73 today, depending on the size, but just note that this is a Gold Box deal, meaning this price is only available today, so don’t sleep on it.
Contigo’s Autoseal West Loop travel mugs are a longtime reader favorite, but the similar SnapSeal Byron is marked down to an all-time low price today on Amazon.
Unlike the West Loop, the Byron’s lid doesn’t open and close automatically, though many reviewers say it’s easier to clean. The Byron also includes a rubberized non-slip sleeve, which is a nice touch, especially at this price.
Your very good dog deserves some very good treats, and Amazon’s happy to oblige them today with a Nylabone Gold Box. You can choose from great deals on 20 different treats and chew toys, but you should probably just buy them all for your favorite furry friends.
You need toilet paper anyway, so you might as well stock up while it’s cheap. Get 48 rolls of Scott tube-free toilet paper for just $12 (or $11 if you use Subscribe & Save) after clipping the 20% coupon on this page. I’m not sure toilet paper tubes were high up on the list of ecologically damaging waste, but I suppose it doesn’t do any harm to get rid of them.
AmazonBasics makes some of your favorite clothes hangers, and you can get 50 of them for $18 today, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen.
Yi, manufacturer of your favorite affordable action cam, also makes a home IP security camera, and you can pick it up for just $29 today with promo code YP5S6XQ4, the best deal we’ve ever seen.
The Yi Home Camera includes all the basic features you’d expect, including two-way audio, automatic activity alerts to your phone, and remote monitoring. And unlike other companies that rely on cloud storage and monthly fees, the Yi stores your files on an onboard microSD card, no membership required.

The Star Wars “Complete Saga” Blu-ray isn’t actually complete anymore, since it doesn’t include The Force Awakens or Rogue One, but $70 is still a great price for the first six films. You also get audio commentary on each movie, 45 deleted scenes, and three bonus discs full of extra featurettes. Just order yours before Amazon alters the deal.
The weather is actually nice, and Mountain Hardwear has the apparel and gear for you to enjoy it. Take 50% off select styles as part of their Summer Sale (even if it’s a bit late in the season). Go climb a mountain or hike a trail. Or just look like you do those things while walking the dog.
