Amazon’s back at it again with another Logitech Gold Box deal, with some of the most popular computing accessories marked down to great low prices.

Mice are the stars of the show, with both the MX Master and MX Anywhere 2 included in the sale. The budget minded M510 is also included in a variety of colors if you don’t mind using a USB wireless dongle.

Keyboards are also well represented, and while you won’t find any mechanical options, there are a ton of wireless keyboards available that are suitable for your computer, your home theater, or anything in between.

A handful of other accessories round out the sale, but we couldn’t include everything in this post, so head over to Amazon to see all of your options.


Anker has long been our readers’ go-to manufacturer for inexpensive mobile phone accessories, but now they’re stretching their tentacles into higher-end markets, and you can save $150 on one of their most ambitious products to date, today only.

Marketed under their Nebula home theater brand, the Mars Portable Cinema is a projector that you can take anywhere. Packing a 19,500mAh battery, the Mars can project a 150″ image at 720p for up to three hours away from a power outlet; more than enough for an outdoor movie night, or even a watch party for a big game. Its built-in JBL speakers should also be sufficiently loud and clear, but you can of course plug in any sound system you want with a 3.5mm cable.

The Mars even runs Android (a weird version of it, admittedly) with support for a few popular streaming apps. But of course, any streaming stick like the Fire TV Stick can plug right into its HDMI port, and utilize the Mars’ USB port for power. And if you have an iPhone or iPad, you can even skip all of that and stream your content directly to the projector over AirPlay, no Apple TV required.

Today’s deal is $150 less than usual, $50 less than Prime Day, and the best deal ever. It’s only available today though, and could very well sell out early.

If you’re going to turn outdoor movie nights into a regular occurrence, you’ll also want to invest in a good screen. There are tons of outdoor-friendly options on Amazon, but Camp Chef’s seem to be the most popular.


For a limited time, Amazon’s taking $60 off the already-affordable fourth generation Moto G, bringing it down to an absurdly cheap $120. Even at that price, you’re getting a 1080p 5.5″ IPS display (The same specs as an iPhone 8 Plus), a 13 MP camera, and an eight-core CPU.


Sound bars have largely taken over the home theater audio industry, but if you still like to build your system a la carte, Amazon’s taking $250 off this popular 400W Klipsch subwoofer, today only.

You can plug this into your existing system if you wish, but it also comes with a pre-paired wireless transmitter if you don’t want to run a cable. Just remember that today’s price is only available today, and it could very well sell out early.


Samsung’s quantum dot-powered Q7 TV isn’t exactly easy on the bank account, but it would be a stunning upgrade to your home theater, and you can save $1000 on the 65″ Q7F today, courtesy of MassDrop.

You can read all about quantum dots here, but the long and short of it that they’re the backbone of a backlighting technology that can produce OLED-quality images on a less expensive LCD panel.

Okay, so with that background out of the way, Samsung’s 2017 Q-series TVs utilize quantum dots to great effect. That Gizmodo review is about the Q9, rather than the Q7 that’s on sale today, but most of it should apply to either set. The Q7 has fewer local dimming zones and a less-premium industrial design, but it’ll still be the best looking TV you’ve ever owned. The 65″ model currently sells for $2800 on Amazon (and that’s an all-time low), but you can get it for $1800 from MassDrop.


One can never have enough flash storage, especially when you can fit 256GB of files on a card the size of your pinkie nail. That’s the biggest, fastest card on the market right now, and MassDrop’s $130 price is about $16 less than the going rate on Amazon right now.

Just note that you do pay a premium for maxing out your capacity here. Amazon currently has a slightly smaller 200GB card for $78.


Chinese electronics firm, LeEco released its first phones in the US late last year, and you can get one for just $199 unlocked, today only.

From Gizmodo:

The LePro 3 is basically a super badass phone with top tier hardware specs. It features a 5.5-inch full HD display, dual-stereo speakers, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 processor, and 4GB of RAM. It has a 16-megapixel rear camera that takes 4K video, an 8-megapixel selfie camera and it comes with 64GB of storage. It has a metal body, fingerprint sensor and Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 technology.

That’s a great deal at its usual $250-$300, and it’s an absolute steal today.


What idiot created this thing and didn’t name it the Power Tower?

This Aukey charger includes 12 AC outlets and six USB ports, so you can plug in all of the things. Just use code AUKEYPS4 at checkout to save $7.


Anker’s original SoundBuds were our readers’ favorite affordable Bluetooth headphones, but they’ve since spawned an entire line of earbuds to fit every budget and lifestyle.

The SoundBuds Curve are the newest addition to the family, and are designed with active users in mind. Their ear wings ensure they stay put while you exercise, and an internal hydrophobic coating means your sweat won’t fry them. Their best spec though? 12.5 hours of battery life, which is fantastic for Bluetooth earbuds. They normally sell for $40, but you can get them for $33 right now, no code necessary.


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

This Sensi thermostat might not look like much, but you can control it with an app on your phone, or even with Alexa, meaning it’s basically an uglier Nest for less than half the price. Today’s deal is about $34 less than usual, so lock in your order before this sale cools down.


If you’ve purchased LED light bulbs in the past few years, they’ve almost certainly been 60W equivalents. But if you miss the days when we all choked the planet to death by burning blindingly bright 100W bulbs, you’re in luck. You can get eight 100W equivalent LED bulbs from Amazon today for just $30, an all-time low, in either soft white or daylight. They only need 15W of power to put out that much light, so they’ll easily pay for themselves compared to your old bulbs.


Are you still using an old-school tape measure, like some kind of caveman? Upgrade to a laser measure for just $19 today, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on one of these. It’ll even calculate areas and volumes for you, in case your math skills are a little rusty.


I know Keurig has its detractors, but for some people, convenience trumps flavor, and that’s fine. Today on Amazon, take your pick of over two dozen K-Cup varieties for 20% off. Just note that you won’t see the discount until checkout.


Perfect for small kitchen, this magnetic strip will keep your knives accessible without taking up counter space and looks way cooler than a knife block.

It would also work well for tools like drill bits, or if you’re getting creative, you can use magnets in the lid of jars to store just about anything.

For just $12 with code 8U5OXWRQ, it’s hard not be attracted to it.


Forget trying to find quarters under your car seat and paying way too much for 3 minutes of air, and get this $21 tire inflator with code IVVIFA4X. You can fill up your tires whenever and wherever you please for free. Keeping your tires properly inflated helps improve gas mileage so this guy will basically pay for itself. It would also be great for bike tires.


Our readers have bought tens of thousands of OxyLED’s motion-sensing night lights, and now you can pick up another for just $15. This model has 20 LED bulbs, can stick anywhere with adhesive and a magnetic strip, and can detect motion to turn itself on and off as needed. I have several of these around my apartment, and love them.


There are seemingly dozens of internet mattress companies these days, but Eight Sleep sets itself apart by piling on smart features, and you can try out any of their mattresses for 25% off with promo code KINJA25.

The mattresses themselves are basically what you’ve come to expect from internet mattresses these days: They’re blocks built from multiple layers of different types of foam. With Eight Sleep though, you do get to pick from three different tiers, including one with innersprings that should be more breathable. Whichever mattress you choose, you’ll probably like it just fine, and if you don’t like it, Eight Sleep offers the industry standard 100 night trial period, so you can return it for any reason.

Eight Sleep’s real magic comes from its unique mattress cover, which has smart features built in that you’ll actually want to use. It can track your restfulness, heart rate, and other sleep stats independently for each side of the bed, wake you up with a smart alarm when you’re not deep in a REM cycle, and even integrate with other smart home appliances. So you could conceivably change your thermostat temperature automatically when you get into bed, and start brewing coffee whenever you’re about to wake up.

The best feature though, without question, is dual zone temperature control. Yes, the mattress pad doubles as a smartphone-connected electric blanket to warm each side of the bed independently, which may not seem appealing right now, but you’ll thank the stars for it come winter.

Our exclusive 25% code (again, it’s KINJA25) brings the entry-level mattress down to $449 for a queen (far less than the equivalent Casper), or $599 with the smart mattress cover.


Flea prevention is one of those things you don’t realize is so expensive until after you get a pet, but you can stock up for $5 off today, courtesy of Amazon. Coupons are available for both Advantage II for cats and K9 Advantix II for dogs. Just pick the right formulation for your furry friend, and you’ll automatically see a $5 discount at checkout.


If you wish you were someone who made the bed every day, or even some days, SPUN Sheets might be the shortcut you’ve been waiting for, and you can put them on your bed for $165 (queen/full) with a preorder.

Advertisement

Let’s start with the caveats. SPUN sheets are currently only available in white, are sateen (silky and shiny), not percale (more breathable), and don’t undercut the likes of Casper and Brooklinen on price even with the preorder discount.

Still with us? Great.

SPUN fixes the bed-making problem by taking hospital corners to the next level. The SPUN top sheet features a bottom flap that tucks under the foot of your mattress, along with corner seams, which when taken together mean that sheet isn’t going anywhere. There are also side flaps that can be tucked or not, and ensure even if your partner is a filthy sheet thief, that you’ll remain covered throughout the night.

Advertisement

In the morning, because the bottom of the top sheet is in a fixed position, making the bed is as simple as pulling the top of the sheet to the head of the bed.

SPUN also includes sticky elastic on their fitted sheet to keep it in place, and envelope pillowcases to keep your pillows where they belong.


Our readers have bought thousands of Yi’s home security cameras, but today, you can save $12 on the new 1080p model.

Advertisement

Yi now offers an online cloud DVR service that will store seven days of motion detection footage for free, 15 days worth of motion detection footage for $100/year for five cameras, or $100/year per camera to store 15 days worth of all the footage the camera shoots, whether it detected motion or not. That said, you can choose for forego the cloud service altogether, and just store your clips locally on a microSD card. The camera also has two-way intercom and live broadcast built in, so you can check in on your house any time you want.

Just be sure to use promo code YIHOMEST at checkout to save $12.


I don’t think we’ve ever posted a grill this expensive, and I don’t think we ever will again. But amazingly, $1806 is nearly $700 off the regular price of this Weber Summit, and the first discount Amazon’s offered on it since 2012, of any size. So if this tricked out grill has been on your wish list, today is unequivocally the day to buy it.


If you’re like me and live in a house without a sprinkler system, watering the lawn isn’t a fun chore. It’s so easy to forget to do it, and then when you do remember you forget to turn it off.

This $20 little gadget is about to solve your problems. Use the programmable timer to set on and off times and forget about it. It’s especially helpful if your area has drought restrictions and designated water times. $20 is pretty much the lowest price we’ve seen outside of some very short-lived coupons.


This is a cheap toaster oven that doesn’t have a million extra features, but does all of those things a toaster oven should – like toast and bake. It’s just $20 after $5 coupon, and that’s just about the lowest price we’ve seen for this model. Plus with almost 4,000 reviews and a 4-star rating, it has to be pretty good at what it does.

Note: Coupon discount is applied at checkout.


We’ve posted a lot of deals lately on these coccyx seat cushions, but $14 is one of the best prices we’ve seen to date, and this particular model is one of Amazon’s top sellers. These will improve posture and ease back pain in any chair where you spend a lot of time, from the office to the car to a long flight.


At $59 (with promo code RLEA8JVJ), this is easily the most affordable sous-vide circulator we’ve ever seen. And while it doesn’t come from a brand you’ve heard of like Anova or Chef Steps, its handful of reviews seem solid. At this price, I think it’s worth rolling the dice.

If you aren’t familiar with sous-vide, Lifehacker has a great explainer of the process here. Spoiler alert: it’s incredible easy, and the results are perfect every time.If you aren’t familiar with sous-vide, Lifehacker has a great explainer of the process here.

Update: Back in stock with promo code JIIXM7RT, if you missed it last week.

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.

Oh, about that mirror…it has a dash cam built into it! Just pop in a microSD card, and you have a backup camera, plus a dual-lens dash cam to record any accidents.


Need to get your body beach-ready? This resistance band set lets you get a full workout in any room in your house, and at $16 (with code CWITJNXQ), it’s quite a bit more cost-effective than joining a gym.


String lights make every space cozier. This 25-ft set of string lights works indoor and outdoors and is available for just $13 today with code 59UXDFWN, putting it on par with the lowest price we’ve seen for these.



You guys love the Phillips Light-Up Alarm clock and now you can get this Vansky version for way less money and on par with the lowest price we’ve seen – just $20 with promo code SXJIFYAA.

Pretty similar to the Phillips Alarm Clock, the sunrise simulation feature will slowly brighten starting 30 minutes before your wakeup time, easing you out of sleep so you can gracefully start your day. Then, it will finish the job with your choice of FM radio or nature sounds.

This is pretty much as cheap as these kind of alarm clocks get. Plus, as the days are going to get shorter, we all are going to need a little extra prodding to get out of bed in the mornings.

NobleSole is already shipping some of the shoes featured on their Kickstarter on their own site, but if you don’t mind a bit of a wait, you can save a pretty penny by preordering.

Truly comfortable dress shoes (and shoes in general) tend to look like hot garbage, but NobleSole’s styles and colors are actually great. Oxblood Monk Straps? Instant buy.

Made at a family-owned factory in Portual, NobleSole’s shoes are comfortable, durable, and insole-friendly. They’re no Cole Haan Laser Wingtip, but they’re half the price, and offer a ton of variety. Fair warning, the tapered toe runs a bit narrow.

You voted Indochino your favorite custom clothing company by a wide margin, and this week you can dress yourself in one of 30 brand new premium suits for just $339. Use promo code KINJA17.

Advertisement

These suits are all new arrivals, and you won’t even find them anywhere else on Indochino’s site yet. $339 is in line with deals they usually offer on end-of-season styles, but it’s unprecedented for new suits.

You do not have to go through the measurement and customization process to lock in this discount. You can checkout now and submit later, which makes it very easy to gift a suit.

Having a suit that fits perfectly is great, but the little details Indochino lets you customize, from your jacket lapels to pocket flaps to accent stiching around your buttons, are where things get fun.

How It Works

Measure and customize from home…

Follow the directions on Indochino’s site to submit your measurements and customize your suit. Once the suit arrives, 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 suit. Shipping and return shipping are free.

If you live near a showroom

Purchase your suit 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 suit delivered to the showroom. Return once it arrives for any final alterations if they’re needed.

Those who already have a closet full of suits may want to opt for something more interesting like the Slate Blue Plaid Suit, while the rest of us should go for something versatile.

Top Gaming Deals

You may not have heard of the board game Scythe, but it has great reviews all around the web, and has never been cheaper, if you’re getting a little sick of Catan.

From Board Game Geek:

It is a time of unrest in 1920s Europa. The ashes from the first great war still darken the snow. The capitalistic city-state known simply as “The Factory”, which fueled the war with heavily armored mechs, has closed its doors, drawing the attention of several nearby countries.

Scythe is an engine-building game set in an alternate-history 1920s period. It is a time of farming and war, broken hearts and rusted gears, innovation and valor. In Scythe, each player represents a character from one of five factions of Eastern Europe who are attempting to earn their fortune and claim their faction’s stake in the land around the mysterious Factory. Players conquer territory, enlist new recruits, reap resources, gain villagers, build structures, and activate monstrous mechs.

I’d watch that movie.


The LEGO Architecture Studio doesn’t include any licensed movie characters, or even colors, and that’s what makes it great. Instead, it’s just 1200+ white and transparent bricks, plus a 272 page guidebook to help you study and create architectural forms with your own hands. It’s definitely not for everyone, but reviewers seem to love it, and it would make a great gift for any architecture lovers in your life.

$113 may seem like a lot, but this kit usually retails for $150, so don’t miss your chance.


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 7TZW34B5. You don’t have to use the cradle if you don’t want to; any microUSB cable will do the job.


Super Mario Odyssey is only about a month away, and here’s a friendly reminder that if you have Amazon Prime, you can preorder it for $12 off (discount shown at checkout). This deal is valid up until release day, but Amazon’s been known to sell out of preorders of popular Nintendo games in the past, so it might behoove you to place your order early.


Update 9/26: Now down to $16 on both platforms, which makes me sad.

While certainly not perfect, I actually really enjoyed Mass Effect Andromeda. Plus, it’s likely to be the last we see of Mass Effect for quite some time. I think it’s absolutely worth $22 for the deluxe edition on PS4 and Xbox One.


$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.
