TODAY’S BEST TECH DEALS
Unless you really need the iPad Pro (and you almost definitely do not), the standard, vanilla 2018 iPad is a terrific tablet for both consuming and creating media. It even works with the Apple Pencil, the first non-Pro iPad to do so.
While we saw slightly better deals on these around Black Friday (if you were quick enough to snag them), $249 for 32GB is still a terrific price for 32GB, and $329 is the best price we’ve seen on the 128GB model (which is the one you should probably buy). If you ask me, it’s worth buying one of these for the express purpose of playing Civilization VI on the go.
Update: This deal is available again, if you missed it a few weeks ago. Amazon lists the AirPods as “temporarily out of stock,” but you can still order them for $140, and you’ll get them once Amazon gets a new shipment.
Apple’s excellent AirPods now support a hands-free “Hey Siri” feature and, now, you can also grab a pair from Amazon for $140. I’ve had mine since the day they came out, and they’ve carved out a permanent place in my pockets.
Amazon says they’ll be“in stock on May 7, 2019,” and they’ll ship soon after that. So if you can wait a few weeks for your truly wireless headphones, this is $20 off the price on the Apple Store and one of the lowest prices we’ve seen. If you want the unit with the Qi-charging case, there’s unfortunately no discount on it, today.
If you just want the new wireless charging case to use with your existing AirPods, it’s also down to $70 today, from the usual $79.
You can still get a 512GB microSD card for $100, and that’s still a hell of a deal. But if you don’t need quite that much space, this 400GB card from SanDisk is actually cheaper on a per-gigabyte basis today.
Marked down to an all-time low $62, it’ll hold a boatload of Nintendo Switch games, 4K footage, apps, and anything else you need to store on it. Ah...the future.
Today’s Best Home Deals
Frosted Strawberry is one of only two Pop-Tart flavors worth a damn, and you can get 32 of the breakfast desserts for just $4 today by clipping the $1.55 coupon. That’s less than $.13 per Tart or—and let’s be honest here—about $.25 per breakfast, because you know you’re not going to eat just one.
They’ll taste just like your childhood, with one big and welcome change; they now come with MORE frosting. I’m onboard.
If your garage or basement could qualify you to appear on Hoarders, Home Depot’s one day storage sale could be just what you need to finally do some spring cleaning in these oft-neglected spaces.
Inside, you’ll find storage on hanging shelves, standing shelves, metal cabinets, rolling carts, and even full workshop cabinetry sets. Just note that all of these prices are only available today, and the best stuff will probably sell out early.
With a whopping 900 lumens of brightness, a rechargeable battery, a zoomable beam, and IP65 dust and water resistance, Anker’s LC90 flashlight is enough flashlight for just about everyone. And with those specs, it’s a steal at $20.
To give you a little context about the brightness here, your smartphone’s flashlight probably puts out about 40-60 lumens. Again, this has 900. Don’t look directly at it.
Just use promo code ANKERLC90 to get this deal before it goes dark.
Have you been craving some cupcakes recently, but don’t actually own a muffin tin? You’re in luck, you can get Rachael Ray’s 10-Piece Bakeware cranberry red set for $16 off if you clip the coupon at checkout. The set includes two 10" x 15" cookie sheets, two 9-inch round pans, two 9-inch square pans, two loaf pans, one 9" x 13" rectangle pan with a lid, and a 12-cup muffin tin. You can also get the agave blue 10-piece set for a couple of bucks off too.
Have you been craving some Smartfood popcorn recently? It’s like Amazon read your mind. You can get a 36-count Simply & Smartfood Delights Variety Pack for just $11 if you clip the $3 coupon. That includes the brands healthier snack options, like Smartfood Delights Sea Salt Popcorn and White Cheddar Popcorn, as well as Simply Cheetos Puffs White Cheddar and Simply Lays Sea Salted chips. Time to get your snack on!
Who knows if Himalayan salt lamps actually have any anti-stress benefits (science sure doesn’t!), but dang, they’re pretty. If you want to fill your home with that nice orange glow, take advantage of these deals on a range of salt lamps from Levoit. There are your classic crystal-like options, plus a few other artsy displays, all of which will make your house feel like a spa. Perhaps your mom would enjoy an extra salty gift this year?
It might not have the name recognition or cool factor of a YETI, but this 55 quart Lifetime cooler is a lot cheaper at just $97 today, and keeps ice frozen for up to seven days. It just met that threshold in this YouTube test, even when it was left outside in the hot sun. Now grab this thing and start planning out beach trips and picnics.
Post-it’s Extreme notes can go a lot of places regular Post-its can’t. They’ll stick to rough surfaces like wood and brick, and somehow, they’re even waterproof. We blasted them with a kitchen sink last year, and the paper never shredded, and the ink never ran.
This pack of 12 pads is down to $13, the best price ever, so if you ever think you might need some of these (you definitely need some of these), go ahead and stock up.
Get some good sleep and save some money with Casper’s 4 Day Sale, now through May 13. For every $1,000 you spend, the sleep retailer will knock off $100, and you can save up to $300 total. And unlike other Casper promotions, you don’t have to buy a mattress to take advantage of it. So, feel free to stock up on new bedding, bed frames, pillows, and other Casper products using promo code SHUTEYE, and have sweet dreams of savings.
If you hate wasting money on paper towels, stop doing that. If you use microfiber towels, you cut costs and you also reduce the amount of waste you create in a year. You can get a 24-pack of Zwipes Microfiber Cleaning Cloths for $11. There’s also a 48-pack available for $23 with a $1 coupon you can clip at checkout. The cloths can be used with or without cleaning solution to clean the kitchen, your car, or around the house. You can wash the microfiber cloths and continue to use them hundreds of times.
Amazon has its own food brands now, which is...strange. But such is the world that we live in, and you can get some delivered for 20% off.
The sale includes the obvious staples like coffee pods, breakfast bars, and trail mix, but also essential ingredients like olive oil, various mustards, and coconut oil (movie theater style popcorn, anyone?).
Prices are as marked (we checked a bunch, and they are indeed cheaper than usual), and you can save more in most cases by using Subscribe & Save.
If you’re on the market for a good kid’s gift, you can never go wrong with a teepee. Little kids (and adults too) love to hang out in forts and tents to chill and play. The Tazz Toys Kids Teepee Tent for Kids is on sale for $65 right now, and you can get an extra $10 off if you clip the coupon . This teepee comes with fairy lights already attached, so it’ll make for a magical experience for whoever you gift it to.
Running to the pet store to pick up food every time you run out is never convenient. That’s why Chewy is such a life saver. And don’t get me started on prescription diets like Royal Canin or Science Diet, which are expensive to restock too. Right now, you can get $15 off your order of $49 or more at Chewy, so long as you have any prescription food or prescription medication in your cart. To get your discount, use the code 15CHEWY at checkout.
Don’t you hate when you go to brew a cup of coffee at home and realize you’re actually out of coffee? Don’t let yourself be without your morning cup of Joe again. You can get $5 off your first order of Peet’s Coffee Major Dickason Blend 75-Count K Cups. Just clip the coupon at checkout and you’ll have enough coffee for the next 2+ months.
If you can get over the fact that they’re refurbished (and they’re, uh, light bulbs, so it shouldn’t be too difficult), today Woot has some of terrific Philips Hue deals.
If you’re just starting your collection, $73 for a four-bulb starter kit with a hub is absolutely ludicrous. That would currently set you back $108 new, and this sold for $150 for a long time.
If you already have a Hue setup, but you’ve been itching to install some smart, recessed strip lighting, you can get the Hue LightStrip Plus for just $60 or add a Bloom for just $52. Unfortunately Woot’s sale excludes the RGB bulbs.
Just remember, these prices are only valid today, and the best stuff will probably sell out early, so don’t let the lights go out on this deal.
If you’ve lost or worn down half of the drill bits in your collection, you can get a complete new set for just $18 today on Amazon, an all-time low.
That gets you a total of 40 drill bits, screwdriver bits, and even some impact-ready bits. This is the most popular drill bit set on Amazon, with a 4.6 star review average from over 6,000 customers, so you can’t really go wrong here.
Today’s Best Lifestyle Deals
In a perfect world, we’d all have someone waiting to rub our feet when we get home. But we live in the real world, and in lieu of love and caring, we can have robots. Today only, Woot’s discounting the Mynt Deluxe Tapping Foot Massager to just $80.
This is currently $100 less than the price on Amazon and the lowest price we’ve seen by far. Not for nothing, but this would make a pretty sweet Mother’s Day present. And while no robot can truly replicate the spa experience, even an okay massage is better than no massage. This is true when dating me and foot massager shopping.
J.Crew is no stranger to extra discounts for on-sale stuff, but for today only, they’re marking down a whole lot of full-priced styles, too. All shoppers get 40% off sale items for men, women, and kids, and for everything else not in the clearance section, enjoy 15% off. Just use promo code FRIDAY, and stock up on classic tees, shorts, button-downs, accessories, and more.
You better believe United By Blue’s Warehouse Sale is offering some great deals on past-season surplus styles and samples. Save up to 80% on loads of apparel, including quite a few jackets featuring the brand’s signature bison fill. And don’t forget; every item you purchase from UBB helps remove a pound of trash from the ocean, so you can feel really good about shopping this sale.
Hit the gym in style thanks to this sale on women’s activewear from Amazon. Everything from leggings and joggers to performance tees and yoga tanks are up for grabs at prices so good you’ll actually want to go work out. So browse through the nearly 150 discounted items before these deals hit the showers.
Run over to Nordstrom Rack, where an ace of a deal is going on now: ASICS sneakers for both men and women are marked way down, with pairs starting at as little as $40. With a wide range of styles and colors up for grabs, they’re all the motivation you need to keep those fitness goals up and running through spring. But be sure to lace up this discount quickly; these shoes will likely sell out soon, and the deal only runs through the next three days.
Full disclosure: You will look kind of goofy when you use this AuraGlow Teeth Whitening Kit. It’s worth it though, because right now, you can bring one home for just $44, after clipping the $5 off coupon. Included in the set is two syringes of whitening gel, plus an LED light that speeds up the whitening process, in addition to a mouth tray and case. Yes, the light makes you look like a duck, or just an adult sucking on a really big pacifier. But hey, no one said the teeth-whitening process would be pretty.
Collagen is said to have benefits for your hair, skin, nails, and joints, and now, you can put all that peptide powder goodness into water, coffee, smoothies, baked goods, and more, for less. Just clip the $2 off coupon to get this tub of Collagen Peptides powder for a mere $23. It’s compatible with the keto diet, contains digestive enzymes, and is tasteless, so you can get that dose of collagen benefits as easily as possible.
If you work out regularly, or uh, at all, you deserve a medal. Or just treat yourself to some new sneakers and/or activewear from Reebok. Right now, the sports-minded retailer is 30% off all the items on their site in honor of Mother’s Day with promo code MOM. Chances are, you’ll make good use of these purchased for many workouts to come.
Summer is within sight, but let’s be real: It’s still a little chilly outside. So even though Mountain Hardwear is taking up to 65% off a selection of past season styles, you could probably still use many of the on-sale items right now, and for future winters to come. (Heads up: This discount applies to the original retail price and overrides any existing markdowns.) Just use promo code MHWMAY65, and load up on outerwear to keep you toasty warm the next time you step outside.
This foam roller is baby, and so is its price. For just $13, you can roll out even the smallest of sore spots with TriggerPoint’s GRID Mini Foam Roller in one of four fun colors. It’s wrapped in EVA foam, so it’s firmer than your average roller, and because of its hollow core, it also uses less foam overall. Plus, this small but mighty roller supports up to 250 pounds, and won’t take up that much space in your home gym. Just roll with it!
Do you hate when your socks slide down your ankle? It’s time to say goodbye to the socks you’ve had since high school and hello to a fresh new pair. You can get a six pack of large white Under Armour Men’s No-Show Socks for just $9. The socks are charged cotton, which has the same feel as cotton but dries much faster. You can get a six pack of large black socks for a couple of bucks more.
Amazon’s Goodthreads brand is chock full of great looking men’s clothing at affordable prices, and over 100 styles are even cheaper than usual today on Amazon.
I own the short sleeve chambray (albeit in a different color), and it’s great, especially for $26. We’ve seen a few sales on Goodthreads shirts lately, but this sale also includes a lot of pants, ranging from sharp looking chinos to comfy canvas shorts.
For the rest of the deals, be sure to head over to Amazon. Also note that many styles are eligible for Amazon’s Prime Wardrobe program, which sends you a box with up to eight styles, and you only pay for what you want to keep. Why are they not all included in Prime Wardrobe, given that it’s an Amazon brand? Good question, but you can fly to the moon to ask Bezos yourself.
Today’s Best Media Deals
In these uncertain times, you can’t put a price on reliable journalism (not literally, though—we need to support quality news organizations!). That’s why Amazon is offering up a free one-month trial of The Washington Post’s Digital Access subscription in today’s Gold Box. Following the month, you’ll be automatically renewed at $6 per month. Or, choose to pay $59 up front for a year-long subscription to the newspaper’s online content; that comes out to $5 per month. But, breaking news: This deal is for today only, so take advantage of it ASAP.
Princess Mononoke is one of Hayao Miyazaki’s most beloved films, and it’s getting a long overdue collector’s edition, releasing next week.
The box set retails for $50, but Amazon currently has preorders marked down to $35, an all-time low. And if it drops any lower before it ships, you’ll automatically get the best price.
The set includes a Blu-ray with the film and special features, a soundtrack CD available for the first time in North America, and a 40 page book featuring essays from prominent film critics, the producers, and even Miyazaki himself.
Amazon’s Treasure Truck is one of the company’s more bizarre initiatives (though perhaps less Bizarre than Bezos’ moon lander), but if you live in a city where the truck makes the rounds, you can find it to score some seriously great deals that you won’t find anywhere else. Just don’t expect to find Clickhole’s Treasure on the Treasure Truck. It is still in Hawaii.
If you live in a Treasure Truck city, you can head over to this page to clip a special $10 coupon that will save you even more on your next Treasure purchase. Just note that you’ll have to make a purchase before July 31 to get the deal.
Today’s Best Gaming Deals
If you’re getting bored of trading wheat and sheep back and forth, Game of Thrones Catan is a completely new take on the classic party game:
The Brothers of the Night’s Watch recognize you as a natural leader as you struggle for promotion within their ranks. You hope to gain recognition by improving infrastructure in the area south of the Wall known as the Gift. Drawing sustenance from this unforgiving landscape offers enough challenges, but you must also man and defend the Wall against the onslaught of Wildlings fighting their way into Westeros to escape the horrors that awaken in the North. Build, defend, and rise above your brothers to become the new Lord Commander. But be wary—the north holds many dangers, and winter is coming.
In case it wasn’t clear, the board has an actual, physical wall. How cool is that? $43 is the best price Amazon’s ever listed, so get this deal before its watch comes to an end.

Deals You May Have Missed
If you’ve dismissed Beats headphones in the past, it’s time to pay attention again. The Studio3 wireless sound much better than their predecessors, pair to Apple devices as easily as AirPods, and even include active noise cancelation. There may be better options at their regular $350 price tag, but they’re worth a listen at $280, especially for iPhone owners.
If you want the durability and lifetime warranty of Anker’s PowerLine II charging cables, but you own a lot of different devices, this $11 microUSB cable includes Lightning and USB-C adapters attached to the end.
It’s a little awkward looking, but it’s nice to know you’ll always have the right cable handy. Use promo code KANJ8436 to save $7 on this super versatile Anker Powerline II 3-in-1 Cable.
Anker’s been turning out some seriously great (and quiet!) robotic vacuums for years now, and for a limited time, our readers can score some of the best prices ever on a variety of models.
First up, you’ve got two choices from the RoboVac 30 line. Both the 30 and 30c feature the same 2.85" height to maneuver under furniture, powerful 1500Pa suction, 100 minutes of runtime, and boundary strips that you can lay down to keep it from running into cords, pet bowls, or other problematic areas.
The 30C, however, includes Wi-Fi, so you can schedule it with your phone, or tell it to run with Alexa. Get it for $210 by clipping the $20 coupon, and then applying promo code KINJA30C at checkout to save an additional $70.
If you don’t need Wi-Fi, the standard RoboVac 30 is available for $200 right now, no promo code required. That’s $70 less than usual, and while I think it’s worth the extra $10 to upgrade to the Wi-Fi model, it’s ultimately up to you.
You can also opt for the older RoboVac 11s, which is the same height as the 30, but with a slightly lower 1300Pa suction rating. It also lacks Wi-Fi and boundary strips, but it’s only $170 with promo code KINJA11S, in both white and black.
Get caffeinated with this 15% off coupon on 12 cans of Starbucks Doubleshot espresso drinks. This time around, the deal’s only available on the Espresso + Cream flavor, but you can’t beat the price of just over $1 per can.
You’ll have to use Subscribe & Save to get the deal, so just be sure to cancel your subscription after the first order ships if you don’t want more.
It might almost be summer, but that doesn’t mean people stop having germs. You can get a car seat cover to keep your little one safe from those freaks who spray everywhere when they sneeze. The breathable fabric will keep your baby comfortable in their seat, even on a hot day. The canopy cover also functions for protection against sunlight, bugs, and nosy strangers.
You can get a Hicoco Nursing Cover Car Seat Canopy for $9 right now. It is versatile enough to be used for other purposes, as a privacy screen for breastfeeding or it can work as a shopping cart cover at the grocery store. Seriously, germs are everywhere and babies are too weak to fight them off.
Whether you’re a seasoned backyard pit master, or this will be your first summer as a Smokeboy, ThermoWorks’ Smoke is our favorite tool for monitoring the temperature of both your smoker and the delicious meat inside.
Here’s what we had to say about the Smoke over on The Inventory:
The core features you should expect from a wireless probe thermometer are all here, but with Thermoworks trademark, Co-Op award-winningquality. The Smoke uses two probes so you can monitor your meat and smoker temp, but unlike similar thermometers, these probes are commercial-grade for better accuracy, higher temperature resistance, faster read speed, and increased durability. The Smoke is also extendable and compatible with the myriad of other Pro-Series ThermoWorks probes. If you don’t want to monitor pit temperature (you savage!) you can monitor two meats. Need to monitor two cookers for some reason? Monitor sous-vide water? Oven-roast two Turduckens? Deep fry scotch-eggs? Whatever. The ThermoWorks Smoke doesn’t care what you poke its probes into.
The Smoke (which includes a wireless receiver that you can wear around your neck) rarely goes on sale, but it’s 15% off for a limited time at ThermoWorks, as is the optional Wi-Fi Bridge, which essentially turns your smartphone into a receiver with unlimited range. Now go get that grill clean!
No kitchen is complete without a classic KitchenAid stand mixer, but admittedly, they can be a bit bulky. Hence why you should take advantage of this deal on its little sibling, the KitchenAid Artisan Mini, now on sale for just $220. It’s 25% lighter than the regular sized version, but compatible with all the same attachments. Plus, aw, it’s so cute!
Update: Back in stock, if you missed it a few weeks ago.
Boiling isn’t the only way to cook eggs in your Instant Pot. This $8 silicone tray (down from the usual ~$10) lets you create scrambled egg bits filled with the veggies, spices, and meats of your choice. Just pour your scramble into each hole, cover, and cook it for 5-10 minutes at pressure, and boom: you’ve got breakfast.
Even if you don’t have an Instant Pot, it also works in the microwave. And even if you don’t like eggs, you could use it to make popsicle bits in your freezer. It’s a silicone tray, you’ll find uses for it.
Despite the proliferation of affordable smart outlet switches over the past couple of years, we haven’t seen many weatherproof options yet, and we’ve seen even fewer models with multiple outlets that can be controlled separately. This $22 option from iClever though has both of those features, and can be controlled with your phone, your voice assistant, or even IFTTT. Just be sure to use promo code OUTDOOR2199 at checkout to save a few bucks.
Ultimate boho brand Free People’s effortlessly cool, vintage-y styles don’t come without some heavy lifting on the part of your wallet. But today, flower children should head over to Nordstrom Rack, where Free People clothing and lingerie is marked way down. Move quickly, since free spirits will likely buy up this stock faster than you can say, Coachella weekend 1 passes with car camping included.
Bar soap is, in my opinion, nasty. And that was true even before BuzzFeed did... this to it.
But still, many people who I otherwise respect and admire still seem to prefer it over body wash or Dr. Bronner’s, so I’m duty-bound as a deals blogger to report that you can get 10 bars of Dove Men+Care Face and Body for $7 on Amazon today, down from the usual $11. We aren’t sure how long this deal will be around, so don’t let it slip away.
Pucker up for Stila Cosmetics’ latest promotion: Today only, if you buy any lipstick on site, you’ll get a second one completely free. Choose from any of the beauty brand’s luscious formulas, including their Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick and Liner, Color Balm Lipstick, and Convertible Color in a whole range of shades both matte and shiny. It’s a deal that’s just <chef’s kiss> stunning.
Has the change in weather been messing with your skin? Don’t freak out, because right now you can get 25% off of all Mario Badescu products at Ulta. It is time to stock up on cult favorites, like the effective acne spot treatment Drying Lotion, which you can get in a glass bottle or plastic bottle for $13.

Both 8 oz. bottles are $9 during this sale.

Gear up now, and get ready for whatever the weather throws your way.

At $8 per month for Prime members, Amazon Music Unlimited was already more affordable than Spotify Premium or Apple Music, but Amazon’s sweetening the pot for new members by offering three months for FREE, for a limited time.
This deal is even available to non-Prime members, though it’ll renew at $10 per month instead of $8. But either way, three months to stream the new Vampire Weekend on repeat for free? Yes please.
The Nintendo Switch has been around long enough that we’re starting to see certified refurbs hit the market en masse. This one’s available for $275, which is only a $25 discount, but it’s sold direct from Nintendo’s own eBay storefront, and includes the standard one-year warranty.

LEGO’s popular Ship in a Bottle set is on sale for $14 off at Walmart and Amazon right now, the best price we’ve seen. It comes complete with translucent water, six cannons, printed sails, and a “wood” base to hold it. It’s also a lot easier to build than a real ship in a bottle, which may be a pro or a con, depending on your point of view.
We think this deal will sink rather quickly down to Davy Jones’ locker, so if you want yours, order it now.
Sugru is right up there with binder clips and the Raspberry Pi in Lifehacker’s pantheon of must-have gear, and you can pick up their Rebel Tech Kit for an all-time low $10 today. That includes four packs in four different colors, a remover tool, and a book with 14 projects to get you started.
Even if you don’t use your Sugru for the tech-specific projects mentioned in the kit, there’s no shortage of ways to deploy it around the house. You could use it to revive your old appliances, or get a grip on an old hose spigot, or anything that involves attaching one thing to another thing. It is moldable glue, after al.
Anker makes a lot of gadgets, but noise canceling headphones were a notable gap in the company’s lineup until very recently. So if you want to block out the world with the new Soundcore Space wireless over-ears, you can save $20 right now, no promo code required.
The Wirecutter-recommended Soundcore Spaces run for 20 hours in wireless noise canceling mode, or you can use them wired for up to 50 hours with NC enabled, which are some of the best battery life specs we’ve seen in this market.
It’s not the biggest or most feature-packed USB-C hub out there, but Anker’s 5-in-1 dongle has the essentials in tow for an all-time low price today.
The adapter turns a single USB-C port into two USB 3.0 ports, an SD card slot, a microSD card slot (which is arguably more useful than these days than the standard size), and a 4K HDMI port. And in true Anker fashion, it comes in a nice travel pouch too.
Today’s $24 list price would already be an all-time low, but the 10% coupon combined with promo code KINJA8334 brings it down to $21. If you have a computer or tablet with too many USB-C ports, and not enough of everything else, this is a great buy.
You should probably deal with that rotting tree branch before it falls on top of your car, and it’ll be cheaper than you might expect to cut down with this exclusive deal on a Sun Joe convertible electric saw. An 8.9' telescoping arm transforms it from a standard chainsaw into a pole saw, making it easy to reach overhead branches without a ladder.
Needless to say, the 6A motor isn’t going to but cutting down any redwoods, but Sun Joe says it has enough power to take down branches up to 7.5" thick. Just use promo code KJSUNJ at checkout to get it for $73. Just please, be careful, Kinja Deals assumes no liability.
You need dishwasher detergent anyway, so you might as well buy it on sale. While supplies last, Amazon’s offering a $3.47 coupon on this 78-pack container of Cascade Complete ActionPacs, a nice discount over what was already a great price.
That works out to just over 11 cents per dishwasher load, which is great when you consider that Cascade Complete carries a 4.5 star review average from over 1,400 Amazon customers.
The coupon will work whether you use Subscribe & Save or a regular Prime order, but obviously, you’ll get the best price by subscribing, and you can always cancel after your first shipment.
Last month, we covered the Kickstarter campaign of a popular wallet designer’s first foray into leather Apple Watch bands, and we came away impressed. Now that the campaign is over, they’re offering our readers an exclusive preorder deal through Indiegogo OnDemand.
For a limited time, you can get one each of all three strap colors for just $59. Less than $20 per band is a steal for full grain, vegetable tanned Italian leather, and especially tempting considering Kickstarter preorders started at $27 for a single band. Obviously, you don’t need all three, but they’re easy to swap out so you can match whatever outfit you’re wearing.
The only thing better than wandering through the boho fantasy land that is Anthropologie IRL, is getting sucked into one of their sales online.

Basically every device Amazon makes was on sale for Black Friday, with one glaring exception: The new, waterproof, Bluetooth-equipped Kindle Paperwhite. So if you were holding out on a deal for all your pool and bathtub reading needs, your patience has been rewarded today with a $30 discount for Mother’s Day.
Better still, this is the best deal we’ve seen, and if you have an Amazon Prime credit card, you’ll get 20% cash back, which effectively lowers the price to $72.
Oh, and if you want the cheaper, all-new Kindle—that’s also cheaper now, too. It’s selling for $70 which is also the lowest price we’ve ever seen.
Anker sells a wide array of smart home gear under its Eufy brand, and a whole bunch of it is on sale this week exclusively for our readers.
Use promo code KINJAEUFY to save 30% on any of the products listed below.
The Eufy Energy Monitoring Smart Plug is a great way to get into basic home automation, and it’ll even tell you how much electricity your appliances are using. The mini version is also the same price and has the same features, but neither will block a second outlet; they’re just different shapes. You can also save more by buying a pack of two.
The rest of the deals are designed to upgrade your lighting setup. First, you could add some automation to your existing light fixtures with this Alexa and Google Assistant-compatible smart light switch for $21, or you can just put the smarts directly into your bulbs with a two-pack of smart bulbs for $23.

We’ll toast to that. A few favorites are below (along with their deal prices), but you can also just head over to Miir’s Amazon storefront and browse from there.
Bonus: Don’t miss out on the Limited Edition designs, which feature great artwork and bold colors.

The five-piece entry level starter kit includes a keypad, base station alarm, a contact sensor, a motion sensor, and a range extender, and today’s $169 deal is within $10 of the best price Amazon’s ever listed.
