Best Tech Deals

At $75, Anker’s new Roav Jump Starter Pro isn’t the cheapest car jump starter we’ve seen, but its 800A of peak output mean it can start pretty much any engine, up to 6L for a gas vehicle, or 3L for diesel. If you don’t buy own of these, you’ll probably be kicking yourself somewhere down the road (pun intended) when you’re stranded in your driveway with somewhere to be.

This being an Anker product, you’ll also find two high speed USB charging ports, plus a flashlight that doubles as an SOS strobe. There’s also a compass, because why not? Even if you already own a jump starter, these make amazing gifts. Believe me, your giftee will remember you the first time they’re able to start their car in the morning to get to work on time.

A car headrest mount for your phone, tablet, and Nintendo Switch is just as useful as a gooseneck mount, and a lot less absurd. If you have kids and a car, it’s the best $8 you’ll spend today (with promo code XYISTWNY).

The cradle expands to accommodate tablets up to 10.5", or shrinks to hold phones as small as 4.7", and the spring-loaded headrest mounts should work with just about any car.

There’s no question that rechargeable batteries are generally superior to the kind that you use once and throw away. But they’re also more expensive, and it doesn’t hurt to keep a stash of the more primitive style of batteries on hand for instant use while you wait for your others to regain power or arrive from Amazon, or for low-draw devices where they actually make more sense.

Today, you can get 48 Energizer MAX AA or AAA Alkaline Batteries for just $14, or around 29 cents apiece. I’m not going to twist your arm to buy them, but if you do, you’ll be super glad they’re in your cabinet next time you’re in immediate need of power and all your eneloops are otherwise engaged.

Samsung’s U3-rated microSD cards are some of the fastest and most popular options out there—I have the 128GB model in my own Nintendo Switch—and all four sizes are down to all-time low prices today on Amazon.

The 32GB card is down to a laughably cheap $6, the 64GB just dropped to $11, and the 128GB went from $25 to $20. The ever-so-slightly-slower SanDisk Ultra 128GB is also down to a new all-time low of $18, which is even cheaper than we saw on Black Friday.

If you need extra space for your action cam, smartphone, tablet, Switch, or anything else, these are extremely fast cards, and extremely good deals.

I’ll just say this upfront: This is a 75" TV that costs $3,500. We post deals on affordable TVs all the time, and this definitely is not one of them. And yet, it’s an amazing deal if you’ve got the money to burn.

So what makes Samsung’s Q9FN worth that much? It’s the single best TV Samsung sells in the US, with a laundry list of features you’d want in a high-end TV, including quantum dot technology for deeper blacks, full array backlighting, Samsung’s best HDR technology, and even Ambient Mode, which turns your TV into a piece of artwork, or blends it into your wall when not in use.

This particular model currently sells for $5,000 around the web, its official Black Friday price from Samsung. But Massdrop, as it tends to do, worked its magic to bring it down to $3,500, just for our readers.

Solid State Drives, like this 512GB Intel 545s, can do more for performance than, say, a new CPU or more RAM. And for $55, there is no reason to hesitate.

This particular 2.5-inch model is currently marked down to an all-time low, or $50 off what’s currently on Amazon. And even if you already have an SSD-powered PC, you can build reliable, fast external drive for cheap—so go ahead and treat yourself.

If AirPods offer the most seamless headphone experience for iPhone owners, Apple’s Beats Powerbeats3 are a close second, and are much better for working out. Now, you can get a pair (in one of the limited Neighborhood colorways) for just $90, the best price we’ve seen.

This is an excerpt from Gizmodo’s BeatsX Review, but it applies equally to the Powerbeats3s:

“The Beats X are the third product from Beats (and the fourth from all of Apple) to use the new W1 Bluetooth chipset. This Apple-designed chipset should allow for better battery life. It also makes pairing with an Apple device a total snap—as long as your iPhone runs iOS 10.1 or higher. All I had to do to pair was turn the Beats X and bring them near my phone. A ‘Connect’ button instantly popped up and I was off—music ready to be heard wirelessly.”

Any competitive gamer worth her salt considers three main things when shopping for a monitor: refresh rate, response time, and price. This $160 Dell D2719HGF delivers on all three.

This 27-inch LED monitor, sold by Newegg’s eBay storefront, offers a 144Hz refresh rate and fast 2ms response time thanks to its TN panel. Sure 4K would have been nice but when you’ll want your graphics settings to low to maximize performance, it’s hard to pass it up. (Consider that it’s $20 less than Amazon’s current price, which is the lowest they’ve ever listed.)

Let’s be frank: This isn’t the laptop you’ll bring home to your parents. It’s certainly not one you’ll want to be seen with at a coffee shop.

This $660 15-inch Asus gaming laptop is one you’ll hide in your bedroom and spend long hours with—performing some tactical crouching and, regrettably, a few C9s. Because ignoring its faults (the red-and-black, aggressive design), this is a solid gaming machine with at an affordable price tag ($70 less on eBay than the lowest Amazon has ever offered).

With a GTX 1050Ti graphics card, 8GB of RAM, Intel Core i5-8300H 2.30 GHz processor, and an acceptable 1TB hybrid drive, it’s a ready-and-willing companion on your desk or bed. (Oh, at it’d pair nicely with this headset.)

Anker’s newest PowerPort wall charger is its smallest one yet, and you can grab two of them for just $13 on Amazon today with promo code ANKERWBF.

The PowerPort Mini isn’t much bigger than the power brick that came with your iPhone, but it includes folding plugs, two ports, and 12W of power rather than just 5W. Literally everything about it is better.

That power is split between the two ports, so while it can charge an iPad at full speed if it’s the only thing plugged in, it’ll drop down to half speed if you plugged in a second device. But even so, that’s perfectly fine for overnight charging, and this thing is small enough to fit in any bag.

Amazon sells a ton of affordable tech essentials under its AmazonBasics brand, and dozens of them (including some surprises) are on sale right now for Cyber Monday.

Your basic essentials like rechargeable AA batteries, USB-C cables, and Velcro cable ties are here, as you’d expect, but did you know AmazonBasics has a UPS power supply? An LED mouse pad? A cool retractable Lightning cable? Yeah, me either. Be sure to head over to Amazon to see all of the deals; chances are there’s something you can use.

VPNs have been in the news, and whether you want to get around video geoblocks, circumvent proxy filters, or just keep prying eyes out of your browsing data while using sketchy public Wi-Fi, reader-favorite Private Internet Access has a deal to fit your needs.

Private Internet Access doesn’t do much in the way of discounting, but they offer exclusive pricing and packages just for our readers that you won’t find anywhere else. Here are your options, and what you’d pay if you bought the same plan elsewhere:

These deals are only for our readers, but we aren’t sure how long they’ll be available, so go ahead and sign up while you can.

Best Home Deals

You’ve probably seen PetFusion’s cardboard cat lounger, which attracts cats like moths to a flame, but did you know they have a bigger version too? There’s enough space here for multiple cats to share, and they can even sit inside and sleep there for about 18 hours per day, as is their wont.

Normally $80, the jumbo model is down to an all-time low $50 right now, which is the same price as the standard model. Meowy Christmas!

If you’re hooked on smooth, caffeine-rich cold brew coffee, you can save a lot of money by making it at home, and KitchenAid’s brewer is the nicest looking option we’ve seen.

Just put coarse coffee grounds in the hopper, add water, and take the grounds out after a day or so. The entire assembly can live in your fridge, and each batch results in 28 ounces of coffee concentrate, which is good for 14 servings if you dilute it properly.

Walmart and Amazon have it for $48, which is an absolute steal and an all-time low, so don’t sleep on it.

The way you make pizza isn’t set in stone. Or is it? If you’re a burgeoning chef with pizzeria aspirations, toss your dough at this 14" by 16" rectangular pizza stone, now on sale for $30. It will ensure that all your homemade crusts are the perfect ratio of crunchy to chewy, and eliminate a pizza’s greatest downfall: the soggy center. Get a slice of the action before this <chef’s kiss> delizioso deal is out of the oven.

Typically, the guest suite is where your previous-gen bedding and towels go to die. And there’s nothing wrong with that, really, but if you want to up your hosting game for this year’s seasonal visitors, you could buy them brand new blankets and bath gear of their very own. (Well, not actually their own since it stays in your house, but you know what I mean. Not hand-me-downs.)

The best time to do that, IMO, is today or tomorrow, while Target is taking 40% off bed and bath items. Washcloths start at just $1 — towels at $2 — and there are plenty of blankets and pillows under $10, so anything you choose will basically pay for itself in one use. Comfortable lodging and a good night’s sleep can do wonders for shifting even the grinchiest of relatives into holly jolly territory.

We all know the ThermoWorks Thermapen is the king of the castle when it comes to high-end meat thermometers, but with thousands of positive Amazon reviews, Javelin thermometers are probably a close second. Today only at MassDrop, you can get the Pro model, which gives you a reading within 3 seconds, for just $33. That’s a full ~$20 less than Amazon (not to mention nearly $70 less than the latest Thermapen), and a great stocking stuffer idea for the home cook in your life.

You know Hydro Flask makes really good water bottles. But did you know you could customize them?

From now until December 3, you’ll get 25% off when you build your own My Hydro. Choose from 11 sizes, two lid styles, and the colors for the bottle, the boot, the lid, and even the handle. Mix and match to create a work of art, or a horrible monstrosity. Either way, it’ll be a unique gift.

Throw out all your silverware; a spork has arrived to replace your entire utensil drawer. Don’t question it. Just do it. I’ll wait.

OK, now that you’ve committed, this Light My Fire Titanium Spork is down to $11, but its worth far exceeds its price point. This is no ordinary spork, you see. It’s a spork that also features a serrated edge on one fork prong. Meaning it’s also a knife. Meaning it is everything. And even though this spork could probably solve world hunger, lead a political party, and found a tech startup, all while balancing my checkbook, caring for my (currently hypothetical) children, and looking striking in a notoriously difficult to pull-off fedora, let’s just agree as a society to let it handle all things related to food and eating for the time being. Shall we?

You know what would be nice this time of year? When it’s freezing cold and pitch black every night when you leave the office? A trip to the Amalfi coast, obviously.

This discounted vacation package from TripMasters includes roundtrip airfare, two nights at a hotel in Rome, three nights at a goddamn-amazing looking hotel in Positano, and a rental car to get you between the cities (and anywhere you want to go in between). Prices start at $1,032 from New York, but you can select other departure cities as well. Ciao!

Hell yeah, dudes, it’s festive candle season! You can make your house smell like the candle store with this one-day-only Yankee Candle sale. Just add any three medium jar candles (65-75 hours of burn time each) to your cart, and you’ll get them all for the price of one. You can even double up on the offer—six candles for the price of two—but that’s as far as they’ll let you go. They have a business to run, here.

If you have any long night races in your future, you’re going to want a bunch of extra lights on your car. Today only on Amazon, several MICTUNING LED light bars, light pods, and installation accessories are on sale, many for all-time low prices. Just be sure to point them towards the road so you don’t blind your fellow racers, you jerk. Just note that like all Gold Box deals, these deals will run out of gas at the end of the day.

Did you know that you don’t have to wait to fail your annual inspection to replace your wiper blades. It’s true! You can do it any time you want! The change in seasons is usually a particularly good time to buy a fresh pair, and these Trico Force Beams feature an aerofoil design that catches the wind to push them towards your windshield, for maximum contact throughout the blade.

Prices vary by blade length (click through to a product page to find the Amazon Garage tool, which tells you what your car needs), but they’re all about 30% off across the board in today’s Amazon Gold Box.

In researching the merits of this multi-tool, I showed it to a bunch of guys I know, and every one of them was enthralled. They described it as “fancy” and said it “looks awesome like a Transformer,” and the $60 price (down from $85) tempted more than one of them to make a purchase.

To really explain why it’s cool, here’s a direct quote from Kinja Contributor Corey Foster:

Oooooh. I covet the Center-Drive. It has interchangeable driver bits, so it’s a legit screwdriver instead of a hacky one. The bits it takes are standard, too, so any of those bits that come with Craftsman and other tool sets will work. Meaning that tiny fucker can be extended to drive any screw — security, Nintendo, Torx, Micro Torx, whatever.

He then recommended this bit set to go along with it.

So, yeah. Suffice it to say that this thing would probably be a good gift for any of the handy people in your life. Or if you love that idea but it’s a little out of your budget, there’s also the Gerber Suspension-NXT Multi-Tool with Pocket Clip for $25. It’s not quite as magnificent, but it should still be met with respectable ooohs and ahhhs.

Think fast: Your mom/boss/other intimidating figure whose opinion you value just called and said she’s 2 minutes away from your house and will be stopping by for a short visit. Your living room is a wreck, strewn with the detritus of careless living, and you’d really rather not be seen for the slob you are. Not by this person, anyway. What do you do?

If you own the Sauder Dakota Pass Lift-Top Coffee Table, currently $98 at Amazon, you scoop up as much stuff as you can and conceal it beneath the mobile top. You won’t be able to shove, like, a ton of junk in there, but you can certainly clear off the this and any other tables and maybe hide a stray object or two that would otherwise be sitting on the floor or couch. That’s better than nothing! And before next time, maybe, examine your life choices so you’ll be more prepared.

If you’re still using that $30 metal bed frame you bought in college, it might be time to do the “adult” thing and upgrade to a nice looking wooden one. These frames from eLuxury Supply come in three different wood finishes, and install (and break down, if you need to move) without any tools. The best part though? The wood slats are only six inches apart, meaning you can lay a foam mattresses right on top without any additional support.

Prices vary by size, but for a limited time, promo code KINJAFRAME15 will take a flat 15% off.

The Force is all well and good, but it won’t get rid of the dirt in your car’s floorboard or the stray crumbs littering your couch cushions. For those jobs, you’ll need the Black + Decker Cordless Hand Vacuum, which is back at its best-ever price of $30. Even a Sith lord would be proud to wield this stylish device, which is almost as futuristic as a lightsaber and, honestly, more useful in daily life.

You can certainly get through life without a full-length mirror, but they’re awfully handy to have when you’re trying out new ensembles. And if you forego the cheap over-the-door kind in favor of a nice leaner, a big mirror can even be a nice decor touch.

This Sandberg Rose Gold Full Length Leaner Mirror features a super now aesthetic and, at 65" x 31", it’ll let you check yourself out from head to toe to avoid embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions. And if you’re some kind of alien who’s not into rose gold, don’t worry: There are plenty of other finishes available.

The stuff that comes in the carton doesn’t have anything on fresh-squeezed juice. Now, you can squeeze all the citrus you want in your own kitchen with this Breville Motorized Citrus Press, now on sale for $161. This stainless-steel powerhouse features a motor that juices your citrus of any size for all its worth. After all, there’s really no better way to start your day than with a tall glass of OJ.

There comes a time in every young person’s life when he or she must strike out and leave the nest to take up a new dwelling place. When that time comes, owning a basic tool set is a must, and this $49 Stanley Black + Decker 20-Volt MAX* 85-Piece Drill Kit is a solid choice.

Along with a drill and accessories for weekend projects, it includes hand tools you’ll need for everyday tasks, like a hammer, a tape measure, screwdrivers, and a stud finder (maybe it’ll point the way to Chris Hemsworth?). They’re probably not the most high-quality tools on the planet, but they’re a fine starter collection for a fledgling adult adapting to a new native habitat.

There’s always that one person in your life that has nothing on their walls. Add some awesome to someone’s life, or upgrade your own bare walls with rad prints during this 30% off sitewide at Pop Chart with promo code KINJAMBOREE.

We’re big fans of their fun and interactive scratch-off posters (Essential Films, Essential Novels, and Essential Graphic Novels). The stunningly detailed Football Clubs of Europe print is perfect for any soccer fan. And of course, you can never go wrong with the classics like the Birds of North America, The Very, Very Many Varieties of Beer, and the iconic Cosmic Exploration chart. Enter the code KINJAMBOREE at checkout to see your discount, which will also work on hanging supplies like frames and poster rails.

Cooking is enough work without having to worry about keeping your pans in good condition. You shouldn’t have to be overly precious with objects designed for use with fire and knives.

While you’re nodding in agreement, click on over and add the Gotham Steel 12-Piece Nonstick Frying Pan and Cookware Set to your cart for $99, and enjoy the freedom that comes with pots and pans you can stick in the dishwasher. The titanium ceramic coating supposedly keeps anything from sticking, but that sounds too good to be true; maybe try making your own Christmas candy in them and report back?

Especially during the bleak winter months, it feels good to have something green in your home. These sets of succulents — one features five different aloe plants, while the other includes a variety of four succulents plus a bonus crystal for ~good vibes~ — are both on sale for $12, and they don’t need much sunlight or water, giving them a solid chance of surviving the frigid months ahead. Plus, they make for nice plant children to nurture while all other flora is cold and dead outside.

Your body has a lot to deal with this time of year. There’s the stress of the holidays, the germs you’ll encounter from being around more sick people than usual, and the dry air you’re breathing in heated environments.

Give yourself a fighting chance at staying healthy with the Honeywell True HEPA Air Purifier, $150 at Walmart and Amazon.

Sucking the dust and allergens out of the air won’t work miracles, but it may give your immune system just enough of a break to get you through the winter without succumbing to illness. If nothing else, your sinuses will probably thank you, and you’ll likely be breathing a little easier.

If you haven’t seen much of the UK and Ireland, this discounted nine-night vacation from TripMasters will give you a great taste of both countries, with all of your transport included.

Starting at just $1119 (prices vary by date and departure city), you’ll spend three nights each in London, Edinburgh, and Dublin, with all of your flights and hotels included in the price. This isn’t a a guided tour; you set your own itinerary, and you can even add nights to any or all of the cities if you want.

Lifehacker’s published guides to all three cities, but drop your own suggestions in the comments.

Here’s a deal to get your tail wagging: If you have a pet and you sometimes need to buy things for said pet, there’s a pretty good chance it’s on sale now thanks to Chewy’s Cyber Deals. Fetch up to 50% off a range of pet essentials, from food to treats to toys, plus a good amount of items are buy one, get one — just note the deal on each listing in green, and use the sidebar to filter for your pet’s preferences. But hurry, this sale won’t sit...staaaaay around for long.

Wayfair’s Cyber Week sale is here, and it is massive. You can save big on a laundry list of home decor items like wall art, area rugs, sheets & comforters, sofas, mattresses, dining room furniture, and more.

There’s so many items to look through, so make some time in your schedule. If you’re needing some place to start, I like this mid-century modern coffee table, wild flower center piece, and industrial-style platform bed.

This sale ends Monday at midnight, so head on over to Wayfair to see it all for yourself. Let us know about your favorite finds in the comment section!

If you still don’t have an Instant Pot in your kitchen (or want a second; it’s not that crazy!), it may be time to grab the 8 qt. DUO model for $80. That’s not quite as cheap as Black Friday, but it’s a great deal if you cook for large groups.

In addition to pressure cooking (which is a miracle), this is also our readers’ favorite slow cooker, and one of their favorite rice cookers too. To put it simply, it’s one of the most versatile kitchen gadgets you can own.

Instant Pot’s official 6 qt. nonstick inner pot is also on sale for $15, down from the usual $15. You don’t need it, but it’s a nice extra.

No matter how great your kitchen knives are, they all need some tender loving care from time to time. This $7 Lansky BladeMedic includes two v-sharpeners, a fold-out sharpening rod, and a ceramic sharpening edge for serrated knives, all in a handheld package that can fit into any kitchen drawer.

This thing amazingly has a 4.6 star review average from over 3,000 customers, and it’s sold out within a few hours pretty much every time we’ve posted it at this price, so I wouldn’t wait.

Firstleaf is an online wine club that learns your preferences, offers tons of options, and most importantly, saves you money compared to buying from the store. It’s a solid deal any time, but it’s even better for our readers from now through the holidays.

Every new Firstleaf member gets an introductory delivery with three bottles of wine for just $15, plus $5 shipping. Every box thereafter includes six bottles for $80, plus $10 shipping. If you use this link and promo code Kinja when you sign up though, you’ll get free shipping on every box for your entire first year. That’ll save you over $100 if you get a new box every month.

There are two ways to share your favorite photos with your friends. You can show them on your phone and pray that they don’t start swiping through your gallery, or you can party like it’s 1999 and actually display a physical copy of the photo somewhere in your home. The latter is much safer and more impressive, and it’s not as much of a hassle as you remember thanks to Amazon, where all purchases are as painless as possible. Custom canvas prints there start at just $24, so you can finally hang some art on your walls like a functioning adult. Next on the list: Cooking a meal with pots and pans instead of in the microwave.

Best Clothing & Lifestyle Deals

There’s no such thing as too many blankets, or slippers, or pajama sets, or fleece-lined leggings, especially in winter. Today’s Loungewear Gold Box on Amazon caters to the cozy set with a variety of plush, warm apparel and throws from coveted brands like Land’s End, U.S. Polo Assn., and FILA. Snag everything you want to cuddle up with ASAP; this sale only lasts one day, but winter is here to stay.

If you’re at all into outdoorsy pursuits, you’re probably familiar with the legendary Ghost Whisperer jacket. It’s incredibly lightweight, warm, and strong, and it’s also part of Mountain Hardwear’s current batch of discounts (but just the women’s version — sorry guys, maybe next time).

Other items in the sale start at just $11, so it’s still worth checking out even if you’re not in the market for a down jacket. For example: There are summer dresses, casual hoodies, and pants appropriate for everything from work to indoor yoga.

Macy’s wants to be more to you than just the store in Miracle on 34th Street and the sponsor of Thanksgiving’s most iconic entertainment. So they’ve decided to label you and me and everyone we know as their “friends and family” and offer us a 30% discount sitewide via coupon code FRIEND (except in certain departments, where it’s only 10%, or 15%, or 25%).

There are a bunch of annoying exclusions, so it may take some trial and error to figure out where the best savings lie, but isn’t the thrill of the hunt one of the reasons humans love shopping? Yeah, Macy’s could have done better, but they’re trying, okay? They just want to be part of your life.

Quit wasting time trying to disguise your dark circles and/or under-eye puffiness with concealer, especially if you don’t even have enough free hours to get a full night’s sleep. Instead, attack the issue itself. Baebody’s Eye Gel has garnered enough Amazon reviews (over 13,500!) to be considered a cult favorite, and now it’s available for just $19 after clipping a $5 coupon. The gel is formulated with peptide complex, Matrixyl 3000, vitamin E, jojoba oil, amino acids, and other effective ingredients that claim to help tackle most under-eye woes. That’s not something to roll your eyes at.

If you’re one of the daring few souls who are confident enough to give yourself or your loved ones a haircut, Wahl’s popular (as in, 12,000+ reviews popular) Color Pro hair cutting kit has a 20% coupon today, which brings it down to just $23. You probably spent more on your last haircut.

The kit includes 13 color-coded attachment guards that correspond to an easy-to-read chart right on the trimmer, as well as scissors, combs, and other accessories. No hot towel though, you’ll need to provide that yourself.

It would be cool (but also weird) if humans could just sprout a layer of fur to keep us warm in winter. Alas, there are some things that nature will not allow. However, humans can purchase this United By Blue Bison Puffer Vest for both men and women, which is filled with bison fiber, an incredibly warm, sustainable down alternative that’s often discarded by ranchers. And today through December 2, you can purchase one for $100, down from it’s usual price of $188.

In addition to being waterproof and super warm, the vest, which comes in either black or olive, also features a handy chest pocket and headphone port. We actually tried out the jacket version of this, and decided it would be perfect for our next expedition to Antarctica.

You can already feel really good about buying TOMS, what with their One for One program and commitment to other charitable endeavors. But the brand is making an effort to make you feel even more comfortable with your purchase, literally. Now through December 2, when you spend $125 or more at TOMS, they’ll send you a free blanket. Just use promo code BLANKET at checkout, and get ready to have a warm body to go along with that warm heart of yours.

Nivea’s gift set is back for 2018, and even if you don’t want to give anyone on your shopping list a box of men’s grooming supplies, you might want to buy it for yourself. Just $13 gets you two types of body wash, body lotion, lip balm, and shaving cream. We’re talking full-size products here here too, the good stuff. One might call it...a soap box.

The holiday season is stressful, so roll out all that tension in your back and beyond with this $22 Gaiam Foam Roller, down to its lowest price ever. Foam rollers are a secret weapon of workout fiends for pre-workout loosening up or post-workout soreness reduction. Or just skip the workout altogether and lay on top of this thing for a nice spine stretch in the midst of the all the Christmas chaos.

If you own the Philips OneBlade—and we know a lot of you doyou can grab two replacement blades for an all-time low $20 (or $19 with Subscribe & Save) on Amazon right now, the best price we’ve ever seen. Philips claims they last about four months, but I went nearly a year with my first one.

It’s shocking how many aches and pains you can develop by simply existing. By the time you hit 30, a strenuous bout of gift wrapping or cooking a pot of gumbo can leave you sore. But Amazon, in its mercy, has discounted the Sunbeam King Size MicroPlush XPressHeat Electric Heating Pad to just $28 to help us battle discomfort at this demanding time of year.

It works just as well as a hot bath, and it’s far more portable and discreet. You can use it at work or in bed, and I even pack mine for travel when I think my body might be put through the wringer. And by that I mean, if I could possibly be forced to sit or stand in a slightly awkward position for more than 90 seconds.

Everlane’s Choose What You Pay section (which, for the unindoctrinated, allows shoppers to choose from three different, discounted price points for an item) is always a good source of savings on some of the brand’s coveted, stylish basics, but it’s usually pretty limited. That is, until now. Everlane has flooded their Choose What You Pay sections for both men and women with a ton of overstocked inventory, including a wide selection of shoes for the ladies. This is likely the last you’ll see of these styles, so take your pick before they sell out, as much of Everlane’s offerings are wont to do.

Beauty megastore Sephora carries some of the best beauty staples year round, plus some really nice holiday gift sets during the most wonderful time of the year. If you’re in the market for either, now would be a great time to stock up, since Sephora is currently hosting its Beauty Insider holiday event. Insiders (aka Sephora reward program members — it’s free to join) can save $15 on purchases of $75 or more; that’s 20% off their whole order. Meanwhile, reward program members at the VIB and Rouge levels can save $20 and $25, respectively, off their purchases of $75 and up. Just use promo code 2018HOORAY, and be sure to check out before December 12, when this beauty of a sale finally fades.

Are New Balance sneaks still a status symbol? They were the shoes to have when I was in high school, and the designs are pretty timeless, so I’m guessing they are.

But even if they’re not, they’re good shoes that you’ll get a lot of wear out of, so you shouldn’t have to think twice about picking up a pair of Men’s 574s while Joe’s New Balance Outlet has them on sale for $30 via coupon code 574DEAL. The absolute worst case scenario is that you can just stash them in your closet and wait for the carousel of trends to circle back to them again.

You can always save big at REI Outlet, it’s basically REI’s clearance page, but now you can take an extra 25% off one single item with code 25OUTLET. Some very notable items are included too, like Marmot’s Precip and Minimalist, both of which landed top spots in our Best Rain Coats co-op, while Smartwool is our reader’s favorite everyday men’s sock maker, and has pairs starting at under $10 with this code.

Other deals include outerwear, leggings, flannels, camping gear, and more from your brands like Patagonia, the North Face, and Arc’teryx to name a few. You should never need a reason to get outside, but this extra savings will make it that much easier.

No matter how what method you use to commute, it has drawbacks. Public transportation makes you beholden to other people’s schedules, driving a car forces you to combat traffic and is environmentally unfriendly, and riding a bike means you’ll arrive at the office winded and drenched in sweat.

Or, it used to mean that, until somebody invented the Hyper 700c E-Ride Electric Commuter Bike. You still get the fitness benefits of pedaling, but a motor helps you along when you face a challenging hill or just want to take it easy for a stretch. Such a smart idea! My morning commute is literally less than 100 feet, and I’m still trying to convince myself I don’t need this.

Well isn’t this lucky: Bohemian-cool retailer Lucky Brand is still offering a pair of winning Cyber Monday deals: an extra 60% off of their already marked-down sale section, and 50% off all their regular-priced items. So take advantage of this blowout to add to your supply of good jeans, vintage-y tees, and plenty of winter styles. Don’t press your luck by waiting too long, though; today’s the last day to get lucky with this deal.

Nailing a solid smoky eye is one of the most fundamental, yet arduous makeup skills that one can acquire, but Urban Decay’s Naked Smoky Palette makes it flat-out easy. Today, this cult-favorite is just $25, down from its usual price of $54, at Nordstrom Rack.

Like much of the brand’s Naked range, the palette features 12 shades of wearable neutral shadows in both matte and shimmery textures that you will want to use for holiday party season, and they won’t even make you look like a raccoon. Get a palette of your own ASAP before it sells out or the deal goes up in smoke.

This sale will have you feeling blue — in a good way. For today only, Levi’s is taking 40% off their entire site. So now’s the time to swath yourself and everyone you know in denim.

If you’re undecided about which of the iconic jean-maker’s dungarees to choose, take it from our readers: the 511 Commuters are the go-to for men’s styles. As for the ladies, you can’t go wrong with the classic 501.

REI skips Black Friday every year in favor of enjoying the great outdoors, which is fair. But that doesn’t mean they’ll leave you in the lurch when it comes to savings. The outdoor retailer is getting a jump on Cyber Monday Week by taking up to 40% off a huge range of their stock — prices on everything from tents and outwear, to car racks and water bottles are getting slashed. Most of these deals will last through December 2, but a few will be hitting the road on Monday, so it’s probably a good idea to grab what you want now.

If you’re having trouble sleeping, suffering from anxiety, or having trouble sleeping because you’re suffering from anxiety, Sunday Scaries CBD gummies could help. Jolie Kerr shared her thoughts on them for The Inventory, and now, our readers can save 15% for the always-stressful holiday season with promo code kinja15.

That applies to the regular gummies, the vegan versions, and the pure CBD tincture, with extra savings available if you buy in bulk, so your wallet can rest as easy as you will.

Best Media Deals

Hey, listen: The Deluxe edition of the Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia may be one of the coolest looking books ever made, and Amazon’s dropped the price down to $36 today, the best deal we’ve ever seen. And if you haven’t used the NOVBOOK18 code yet, you can bring that down to $31. That means you won’t have to spend as much time cutting grass and breaking pots to afford it.

I still say that Star Trek (2009) is far and away the best Trek movie ever made, but for those of you that have a soft spot in your heart for the six original series films, head over to Amazon at warp factor 8 to get the box set for an all-time low $17.

Good news everyone! For a limited time, Amazon’s marking down digital downloads of every Futurama season, except Season 6, to just $5 each. The early seasons are only available in standard def, but it makes the switch to HD in season 7, for no additional charge.

Let’s be honest: We were going to buy this book even if there wasn’t a deal on it. But Michelle would certainly want you to take advantage of one if there was, right? The hardcover is down to a new all-time low $15 on Amazon right now.

Plus, you can still get a $5 discount if you spend $20 on books using promo code NOVBOOK18, which means you can add a $5ish book to your order, and effectively get it for free. Thanks, Obama.

Breath of the Wild is one of the greatest games ever made, so we’ll forgive Nintendo for spiking the football with a ~400 page hardcover compendium full of design artwork, commentary about the game’s development, and a history of the Breath of the Wild’s take on Hyrule.

The book only just came out, but its price has been chopped down like so many blades of grass to an all-time low $19 today. That’s not a lot of rupees for an incredible gift for any Nintendo fan.

If you devour books the way a pygmy shrew eats (constantly, as if your life depends on it), Kindle Unlimited was designed for you. Until November 30, new customers can give it a 3-month whirl for only $1 — a massive savings and a rare discount that only the library can beat. (Be aware that you’ll automatically start paying the regular rate of $10/month if you don’t cancel at the end of the trial.) With access to more than a million ebooks and audiobooks, you’ll never run out of new material to consume.

Best Gaming Deals

Consider this post a Hogwarts acceptance letter — that is, if Hogwarts also taught coding. Wizards who also aspire to become code whizzes can combine their interests with this Kano Harry Potter Coding Kit, now on sale for $80. Students build their own coding wand, and with just a swish and flick, they’ll see instant effects on their screen while also learning the fundamentals of code. There are 70-plus creative challenges for kids ages 6 and up to master before they can confidently say, “Mischief managed.”

If you’re anything like me, you’ll relax after a long day in front of a screen by sitting in front of another screen. Headaches and difficulty sleeping are routine—but, of course, they don’t have to be.

These gaming glasses from Gunnar Optiks promise to lessen eye strain caused by the blue light emitted from screens. Users report fewer headaches and an easier time sleeping. While this pair normally sells for about $50 on Amazon, right now you can use the code KJGUNNAR on DailySteals to bring it down to $39.

Nintendo Labo Variety Kit | $45 | Walmart
Nintendo Labo Robot Kit | $60 | Amazon

Update: The Variety Kit is sold out, but the Robot Kit is still on sale.

Labo is Nintendo at its weird best. The cardboard Variety Kit can turn your Nintendo Switch into a fishing pole, a motorcycle, a piano, and more fun toys. Again, this is cardboard!

So if you have a Switch and you have a kid (that second part is optional, it’s okay to play with this yourself), $45 is the best price we’ve ever seen on the Variety Kit, which normally sells for $70.

The Robot Kit, which literally turns your Switch into a freakin’ mech suit, is on sale for $60 (from the original $80), but it’s been that price for several weeks now.

Behold, the largest garage playset Hot Wheels has ever produced. Doesn’t it just bring a tear to your eye? It’s a thing of wonder and beauty, and it’s on sale today for $150.

The Hot Wheels Super Ultimate Garage Playset has a lot going on. It’s over 3 feet tall and holds more than 140 cars, and the elevator can transport 23 vehicles at a time. There’s also a side-by-side race track, a motorized havoc-wreaking gorilla, and a spinning car maintenance station. And, for some reason, a jet.

I’m not saying you’re a bad parent if you don’t buy this triumph of human ingenuity. I don’t have to, because I know you’re capable of looking into your own heart and seeing the truth.

There’s no arena of modern American life that Disney hasn’t touched. Toys, apparel, and home goods are all saturated with its branding, and I for one welcome our pixie dusting overlords. You’ve gotta take magic wherever you can find it, even if it comes packaged in a shiny corporate shell.

With today’s Disney Gold Box, you can make Big Mouse an even more indispensable part of your life. The prices are especially good on costumes and small toys, so you can raise your children to be appropriately reverent of the empire started by good old Walt. But don’t worry, there’s stuff for adults as well. One of us... one of us...

Kids love the idea of gingerbread houses, but the reality never quite lives up to the dream — until now. The Step2 My First Gingerbread House, $24 at Walmart and Amazon, is all the fun of decorating with none of the frustration of collapsing walls. And you won’t be left with a sticky mess or a crusty confection nobody wants to actually eat at the end!

Toddlers will dig the lights and music, and you’ll appreciate the built-in storage for all the pieces. Some reviewers did note issues with construction (so maybe it’s more like a real gingerbread house than it initially seemed), but if there’s a cuter holiday toy/decoration out there, I’m not sure I could even handle it.

When my daughter was 2, I took her to visit her big brother at preschool. One of the first things she did was try to climb on the big kid toys on the playground, fall, and cry. But now she’s one of the toughest kids I know, so I guess that minor injury was actually a life lesson in not giving up when things get hard and refusing to give in to pain.

Teach your children those same lessons in your own backyard with the Lifetime Geometric Dome Climber Jungle Gym, $130 at Walmart and Amazon. It’s 5 feet tall at the apex, so not high enough for most missteps to be life threatening, but it should be sufficient to yield the benefits of “risky play” that experts are always talking about. But I don’t blame you if you maintain strict supervision while your kids are on it — there’s only so much freedom most parents can give before anxiety sets in.

Kingston’s HyperX Cloud II is one of your favorite gaming headsets, and you can get your own, or give it as a gift, for just $70 today. That’s a whopping $30 off the regular price, and the best deal we’ve seen in a couple of years.

It’ll will work on PC, Xbox One, PS4, or even Switch, and features full 7.1 surround sound (on PC and Mac only), which means you can hear people sneaking up on you while you hide in a bathtub in PUBG.

On the surface, soccer seems like an easy sport to master: You just run and kick a ball. But in reality, only a handful of humans will ever be truly exceptional at futbol.

You’re far more likely to achieve excellence at FIFA 19 for Xbox One or PlayStation 4, and right now the game is only $29 at Walmart. (Stock is fluctuating, so ordering for in-store pickup is probably your best bet — who wants to pay $6 for shipping, anyway?) Before you know it, you’ll be scoring enough GOOOOOOOALS to keep Andrés Cantor busy for life.

Board games are super fun, but they take up a lot of real estate when your collection reaches a certain size. Humble Bundle knows that we don’t all have space for a giant cabinet of amusements, so they’ve created a digital assemblage to entertain you and take up zero room (except in your Steam library, but that’s already overflowing, so a few new additions won’t hurt). For $1, they’ll give you seven ports of games like Harald and Agricola for platforms ranging from Android to Mac. Pay $7 or more to unlock 11 more games, including Pandemic and Splendor. I’m not entirely sure about the logistics of having friends over for game night when you have to sit in front of a computer to play, but I’m sure there’s a way to make it work. The human spirit is predisposed to overcome all kinds of obstacles.

DXRacer’s Formula gaming chair has graced many an esports tournament stage in its day, and you can plant your own butt in one for $215 for Cyber Monday. That’s not a small amount of money, but it normally pushes $300, and if you spend a lot of time in a chair for gaming or for work, it’ll be a worthwhile investment.

Kotaku’s Maddy Myers covered the very similar DXRacer Valkyrie in exhausting detail, if you want to give that a read before pulling the trigger.

If there was one more game I was hoping to see in Amazon’s Black Friday board game sale last week, it was Scythe. Lo and behold, it’s now down to $49, within about a buck of its best price ever.

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.

With Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft basically created the Netflix of video games, and it’s a great deal at its usual $10 per month. But for a limited time, you can get a gift card for a whole year for just $70.

Xbox Game Pass grants you access to newer releases like State of Decay 2 and Sea of Thieves, as well as classics like KOTOR and all of the Gears of War games. The only catch is that you’ll be auto-renewed at the standard rate after the year is up, but hopefully there will be another deal before that happens, right?
