Two Samsung TVs starting at $350, Super Mario Party, and a racing-style gaming chair lead off Friday’s best deals. If you are shopping for your mom right now, we are updating our Kinja Deals Mother’s Day discounted deals post daily and have a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift guide as well.
You didn’t spend hundreds of dollars on an Apple Watch just to have to fish the annoying charging cable out from behind your nightstand night after night. This $4 dock will keep your charger firmly in place, and props up your watch at a great angle for its surprisingly useful (if you have decent vision) nightstand mode.
The Apple Watch as a product line may have had a rocky launch, but its latest iteration, the Series 4, is a seriously impressive leap forward. So whether you’re finally upgrading your original model, or even getting your very first wearable, it’s the one you should buy, especially on sale.
For a limited time, Amazon’s got both the 40mm and 44mm versions marked down by $50, with your choice, in a few different color/band combos. The rubbery sports band looks surprisingly nice in person, while the Sport Loop is like a very high quality velcro.
If you missed out on all the Super Bowl TV sales, don’t fret. This 55" 4K Samsung is on sale for $400 and, if you want one that’s a little smaller, this 50" unit is $50 less at Walmart right now. To be clear, these are not Samsung’s best TVs, but both include smart apps, HDR, and even a clean cable routing solution that you won’t find from any other manufacturer.
FYI, you’ll need to add these units to the cart to see the discounted price.
Imagine the perfect gaming monitor. You’d probably want something with a super fast refresh rate, large screen, anti-tearing software and one that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Imagine if I told you, you can get one with 2560 x 1440 (QHD) resolution for under $300.
Now, if I said it was a monitor from a brand I’ve never heard of. Would you care? The answer is, sort of, yes.
And while I can’t wholeheartedly endorse this monitor, I’ve got to say it’s at least worth a look. It checks off all of the boxes you’d want from a gaming monitor and pretty darn cheap for what it’s offering.
If you’re feeling adventurous and want to skip Asus/Samsung gaming monitors, definitely check this one out. Just make sure to clip the coupon on the page to save the extra $15.
Wi-Fi range extenders aren’t a cure-all for your networking issues. But if you have one particular device in one particular corner of your house that has trouble pulling in a reliable signal, it can be a much cheaper solution than buying a whole new router or mesh networking kit.
This AC750 extender from TP-Link includes an ethernet port for wired devices, app support so you can easily set it up from your phone, and even a built-in smart plug that works just like TP-Link’s other smart plugs. Considering you’d usually spend at least $19 on a smart plug anyway, this is like getting the range extender features for free.
While you’ve probably purchased most of your Anker gadgets from Amazon, the company actually hosts an extensive eBay storefront, and they’re taking an extra 30% off today when you spend $50 or more. The sale includes battery packs, charging cables, headphones, USB-C chargers...you know, things we all need.
Plus, some items are available refurbished at an additional discount, so you can really stack on the savings. Just note that you won’t see the discount until you get to checkout.
If you’re all in on the Google ecosystem, you can put two more Google Home Mini smart speakers in your house for $48 today, courtesy of Woot. This is one of the best deals we’ve seen on these since Black Friday, and not bad considering they usually sell for $49 each.
At first glance, Anker’s SoundCore Spirits look a lot like the reader-favorite SoundBuds Slims, but they do have a few key upgrades. The big one is IPX7 water resistance, plus added sweat-countering measures from Anker that make them ideal for working out, especially compared to the IPX5-rated Slims. They also last a bit longer with an eight hour battery (vs. seven), include a built-in cord shortener, and should have a bit more bass as well.
The SoundCore Spirits have sold for $30-$40 since they launched last year, but today, they’re just $25 with promo code HPSPIRIT1, a match for the best deal we’ve seen.
You probably spend a good amount of time in your own bedroom and bathroom, so treat yourself to any upgrade your heart desires (or your home requires) with Wayfair’s Semi-Annual Bed & Bath Sale, happening now. Take up to 70% off a wide range of accents and essentials, including mattresses, vanities, throw pillows, window treatments, and linens, just to name a few. It’s a deal you’ll appreciate literally every single day.
Cold brew coffee is basically the only kind of coffee I like, and when there wasn’t a Starbucks readily available, I’d been using the popular Takeya cold brew pitcher for over a year to make it at home. That all changed when my mother-in-law got me OXO’s alternative as a gift a couple of years ago, and it quickly became one of my favorite possessions.
The Takeya is fine. Good, even, especially for under $20. But the reader-recommended OXO is absolutely stellar. The video above tells you everything you need to know about how it works, but I promise you that the coffee you get after 24 hours of steeping is potent, delicious, and and can easily last you over a week, even if you don’t dilute it as much as OXO recommends.
Its MSRP is $50, and as an OXO product, that’s about what you’ll typically pay. Right now though, you can get it for $40, the first discount we’ve seen in 2019. It didn’t even go on sale during Black Friday, so you know this is rare.
Today only, Amazon is marking down everything you’ll need to keep your lawn healthy. Choose from plant food, weed preventers and killers, grow lights and more from brands like Roundup, Scotts, and Root Farm.
Just note that this is a Gold Box, so these prices will only stick around for a day. Prices start at about $13.
If you want to keep track of your new year’s weight loss resolutions, the new model of Anker’s ultra-popular Bluetooth smart scale is on sale today for just $25 right now, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on a smart scale.
In addition to functioning as a normal digital bathroom scale, the Eufy BodySense can measure metrics such as body fat percentage and body water, and sync all of that data over Bluetooth to your iOS or Android smartphone. You can see my impressions of the previous model here, but it’s the most seamless and reliable smart scale I’ve ever personally used.
Himalayan salt lamps are all the rage these days. If you’ve been thinking of trying the trend, today’s a good day to do it. Amazon is discounting several different salt lamp styles and sizes, along with other spa-like salt products, in the Gold Box today. Some claim these types of lamps have a calming, anti-stress effect, which certainly isn’t a proven fact. But I think we can all agree that their orange-y glow creates a pretty ambience. Plus, they make a nice gift, and Mother’s Day is fast approaching.
You need dishwasher detergent anyway, so you might as well buy it on sale. While supplies last, Amazon’s offering a $2.60 coupon on this 78-pack container of Cascade Complete ActionPacs, which was already marked down to about $12. If you stack with Subscribe & Save, you’ll be spending less than $.13 per dishwasher load.
If you still haven’t upgraded your morning routine up a life-changing wake-up light, Philips’ entry level model just got a big price drop.
The Philips HF3500 is currently marked down to $37, a match for the best price we’ve seen since 2017. While there are higher end models with color-shifting lights and multiple wake-up sounds, this model still offers a reasonably convincing facsimile of a sunrise, which helps ease you out of REM cycles before the alarm sounds. I’ve been using it for years, and absolutely love it.
If you’re traveling abroad, you unfortunately have to throw your minimalist, front pocket wallet to the wind. But this Zero Grid RFID-protected passport wallet is just large enough to hold that oversized passport (and not a centimeter bigger), as well as cash and up to 10 credit cards. Get it for $13 today by clipping the $1 coupon on the product page, then adding promo code C5M4ONX2 at checkout.
I pity the fool who uses a blender to make guacamole. There’s only one real way, the abuelita way, which is with a molcajete. And an abuelita is never wrong, and you never question her unless you want a laser-guided chancla to the face.
This particular molcajete is just $13 right now, down $5 from its usual price. The best part? After you’re done making the guac, you can serve it on the molcajete.
Do you always stop at an expensive coffee shop on your way to work? If you care about the taste of your coffee, then it is time to start making a pot at home. If you’ve never gotten into K Cups and prefer ground coffee, skip buying preground and get your own grinder.
The OXO BREW Conical Burr Coffee Grinder is $80 on Amazon right now. This model has durable conical burrs, which helps create uniform grounds. If you brew with your own grounds, you’re guaranteed to have a strong and flavorful cup of coffee. This grinder has one touch start, 15 settings, and can hold up to .75 pounds of coffee beans.
Sometimes, wrapping yourself in a cocoon of blankets is simply not enough. In those moments, reach for this cozy, reversible Comfy Original Blanket Sweatshirt, now on sale for $34.
This oversized sweatshirt-blanket is one-size-fits-all and long enough to cover a good portion of your legs. One side features super soft sherpa material, while the other features super soft material in your choice of 9 colors, but both sides have a handy front pocket in which to store your phone, or just your hands. It will definitely replace all your regular, non-hooded and/or sleeveless throw blankets and hey, maybe even your clothes, too—no judgement.
There is no age limit on who can enjoy all things Barbie. If you grew up playing with Barbie dolls, do you remember how glamorous her life was? She had a massive Dream home, a Malibu beach house, a hot pink sports car, and of course, who could forget the Barbie DreamCamper? You can actually buy an updated DreamCamper on Amazon and for only $50, which is $20-$30 less than usual, making it an all-time low price. You can add this camper to your old Barbie collection or you can get this for the kid in your life and start them on a wonderful Barbie journey.
The kit comes with three maintenance-free basil cartridges to get you started, , but you can also purchase plenty of other flowers, herbs, and vegetables from Amazon to suit your taste. Functionally, this thing is pretty similar to MiracleGro’s line of Aerogardens, but aesthetically, it looks like like an Apple product in the best possible way.
If you have had an expensive face cream or foundation in your shopping cart at Sephora for weeks, time to get your credit card out. Their Spring Beauty Insider sale has officially begun. Sephora shoppers can get 10-20% off their entire purchase during this sale.

Whether your mom loves to work out or just lives in athleisure, you’ll find something give gift her for Mother’s Day at Under Armour’s latest sale. Take 25% off select women’s gear, including leggings, shirts, shorts, and bags, no promo code necessary. Just be sure to pick out your present quickly; this deal ends Monday.
Summer is right around the corner, which means people are trying to get beach body ready. If you’re crushing it at the gym or just love some good athleisure gear, you’re in luck. You can get 20% off men’s and women’s activewear at Target.
Popular brands C9 Champion, Umbro, and Nicklaus are all on sale at Target right now. A standard pair of high-waisted black leggings from C9 Champion is on sale for $20. If full-length pants are too hot to wear during summer workouts, you can get a pair of mid-rise training shorts for $10. If you’re a guy who sweats like crazy during a workout, this running t-shirt will wick away all excess moisture.
Suits aren’t meant to be comfortable. Nobody really ever wants to wear a suit. But Sene is aiming to change that with the ambitious new FlexTech custom suit, now on Kickstarter for both men and women.
Made from a technical fabric that doesn’t look technical (honestly, you’d never know it unless you tugged on it), the FlexTech suit features four-way stretch, is extremely wrinkle and lint resistant, wicks sweat, and <drumroll please> is machine washable. I’ve tried one on, and while I wouldn’t go as far as Sene does in claiming that it’s as comfortable as a pair of sweats, it’s certainly more pleasant to wear than other suits I’ve owned.
Sene lays out one particular scenario, flying, where the FlexTech really shines. If you have to get straight to a meeting/wedding/funeral right after you hop off the plane, the FlexTech is going to be far more comfortable than any other suit while crammed into a tiny airline seat, and it won’t even be wrinkled once you land.
Sene is also banking on customization options, a la Indochino, to set themselves apart. After you order, you can submit all of your measurements, plus various preferences like pocket styles, cuffs, and hidden buttons, and your suit will be made to order once it’s ready to ship.
Sene currently has 11 days left on its campaign, and it’s already fully funded, but you can lock in a full suit for $415, or less if you only want the pants or the blazer.
It’s finally spring, but that necessarily doesn’t mean the weather has gotten warm yet—and that’s why you should take advantage of Marmot’s sale on a flurry of items that are from “last season.” The outdoor retailer is taking up to 50% off past season styles. The discounted stock is noted by the word “save” across the color square on the product page, and — spoiler alert — you’ll probably still get some use out of any on-sale stuff, even though it’s technically so last season.
We’re approaching peak picnic/camping/beach trip season, and if you don’t own a cooler that you really like, some of our readers’ favorites are on sale right now on Amazon.
You can save today on both soft and hard RTIC coolers, both in multiple sizes. The Soft Packs are actually our readers’ favorite coolers, and they really do keep ice frozen for days. Purely for ergonomic reasons, I prefer them to the hard coolers, but the hard ones include a drain to let out excess water, which is a nice plus.
Though Amazon doesn’t actually show them as discounted, all three soft packs are down to their best prices in at least 11 months. The 20-can model usually costs about $120-$130, the 30-can model hovers between $140 and $165, and the 40-can behemoth has sold for at least $165 for most of the last year.
Too Faced wants you to jet off on a fancy vacation with their free travel-sized primer and setting spray offer. If you spend $35 on Too Faced products, you’ll get a free travel-sized Hangover Replenishing Face Primer and Hangover 3-in-1 Replenishing Primer & Setting Spray. That’s a $31 value! In order to nab these freebies, you can the promo code HANGOVER at checkout.
Stila Cosmetics is celebrating mom with a 30% off sale on a selection of their top products. Right now, save on items including Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow, Correct & Perfect All-in-One Color Correcting Palette, and Stay All Day Foundation & Concealer. Plus take an additional 15% off with promo code BOSS15. Just be sure to place your order by May 6 to guarantee it arrives in time for Mother’s Day.
Sunnier days are on the way, so you should stock up on shades to protect your eyes (and also make you look cool). Right now, Backcountry is taking 25% off select sunglasses. Grab a few pairs now to get you through summer, since this sale will only last for one more day.
Vince Camuto is known for making sleek yet affordable styles, but today, Nordstrom Rack is bringing down the prices even further via a few clothing and shoe flash sales. Stock up on spring dresses, sandals, and more, and feel good knowing you look great and didn’t break the bank.
Today, Amazon is discounting a number of tackle boxes and accessories for your upcoming fishing expedition. Choose from three tackle systems from Plano, plus a hunting rangefinder and a hunting tent just in case you want to bulls-eye some womp rats in your T-16 this summer.
But friends, remember that these discounts will only last until the end of the day or until sold out. So, make sure to reel ‘em in before they get away.
You’re forgiven if you haven’t given Mario Party much thought in the last decade, but Super Mario Party seems like a return to form for the minigame-based party series, and you can grab a copy from Amazon today for $50, a $10.
This is $5 off the lowest price we’ve ever seen, but it’s still a solid deal if you want to have some couch multiplayer fun.
Your super powerful gaming rig deserves an equally impressive gaming chair. And right now you can pick up a racing style gaming chair for just $133.
This particular unit is ergonomically sculpted, includes all the adjustment options you’d expect including a 130 degree recline, and is half the price of similarly-designed AKRacing chairs.
If you clip the coupon on the page, you can bring the gray model down to a low $133. This model usually hovers around $190, so this current discount is an absolute steal.
Risk Legacy isn’t the somewhat boring and long-winded Risk game you’re familiar with. No, it’s a game with real stakes and consequences: You’ll draw on the board, rip up cards, and make decisions that can’t be undone over the course of your playing sessions. The man in black on Westworld should have just played this instead of looking for the maze.
$39 might seem like a lot to spend on a board game, but that’s the best price Amazon’s offered since last summer, and you’ll definitely get your money’s worth.

The big deals here include the Google Home Mini. For instance, pick up a $130 Google Home Hub and you’ll get a bonus Mini. Or you could pick up the smart lighting starter kit which includes a Mini and a GE C-Life bulb for $35. And a standalone Mini will cost you $29 as part of this sale.
It might be Brooklinen’s Birthday Event, but you’re the one getting the gift: For today only, save 20% sitewide at Brooklinen using promo code BDAY20. Our readers are big fans of the brand’s Luxe Sateen sheets, and their Classic Percale sheets won us over with their crisp, cool feel. So go ahead and load up on linens before this deal disappears until next year.
Everything you’d want to jump start a smart home from the shopping giant is on sale right now.
To be clear, this is your standard fare sale. We’ve seen all of these prices before but they’re still solid bargains.
Right now MSI’s MSI Gaming GeForce RTX 2080 8GB GDRR6 256-bit VR Ready Graphics Card is down to $800 on Drop (formerly MassDrop.) This latest-generation unit offers a ton for not very much money.
Gizmodo says these particular units offer “more accurate lighting and better realism—and that’s something that’s should be supported by more games going forward.” Sufficed to say, it’ll definitely last you a long time.
We’ve long been fans of Ghost Paper’s notebooks, which feature subtly embossed lines that you can actually feel as you write, and now you can save 20% on the company’s notebooks (including a new model!) for Mother’s Day with promo code KINJA501.
From our Inventory write-up:
Ghost Paper uses texture, rather than ink, to create the alternating embossed and debossed lines on its pages. The effect is subtle, even invisible at certain angles, and straddles the line of offering tactile feedback without interrupting pen and pencil marks.
Since then, our readers have bought thousands of the company’s 96-page faux leather-bound notebook, which is back on sale for $20 with code KINJA501 today. That code will also save you 20% on the brand new, 200-page spiral-bound version, which is actually cheaper to start with. The cover and binding aren’t as premium, but Ghost Paper sent me a few spiral bounds to check out, and the embossed lined paper is just as good, which is what really matters.
We love Framebridge for their nice frames and impressive gallery walls, and now, it seems the service is coming through for Mother’s Day, too. For a limited time, you can get two Chloe frames—normally $65 each—for $100. Upload your photos by May 5 to be sure the frames arrive at Mom’s doorstep in time for the big day. Go with a pic of you two together; she’ll be overjoyed to have a nice memory with her offspring hanging on the wall, and even more excited about how nice the fame looks.
There is one thing in life that is always guaranteed: laundry. No matter what, you’re always going to have dirty clothes. Detergent doesn’t always come cheap, which is why you’re going to want to snag this discount. If you subscribe for Tide Pods or Gain Flings, you will save 20% on your first subscription. That really adds up when you think about how many loads of laundry you do every week. If you have kids, then you know discounts on detergent are actual lifesavers. To get the deal, you’ll need to use Subscribe & Save on any of these eligible products, but you can always cancel after your first delivery.
Fried foods are bad for you, but these air fryer deals are good for your wallet (and also better for your health than foods fried in oil!): Magic Chef is taking 15% off two different air fryer models for our readers exclusively with code KINJA15. That means the 2.6 Quart Snack-Sized Compact Digital Air Fryer is down to $76, while the slightly larger 3.7 Quart Digital Air Fryer is going for $81. So go ahead and grab one for your kitchen before this discount burns out.
Herman Miller furniture is legendary, and also legendarily out of reach for most of us. But if you have one chair, table, or bed that you’ve just been dying to get your hands on, nearly everything they sell is 15% off during the company’s semi-annual sale, so you won’t find a better chance to splurge.
The world-famous Aeron office chair is one of our readers’ favorites, and the Embody is another great option for your home office. If you’re looking for something a little less heavy, the Setu is an awesome task chair, and the Eames is of course, timeless.
Meanwhile, I’m sitting here drooling over the Noguchi coffee table. Find me on Venmo if you want to donate to the cause. They only offer this sale twice a year, and otherwise don’t really do any discounts, so put that tax refund to good use.
Southwest’s Rapid Rewards credit cards aren’t necessarily the most rewarding airline credit cards out there for your day-to-day spend, but their lucrative welcome offers, anniversary points bonuses, and relatively low annual fees make them a great addition to any wallet, especially in the wake of the airline’s recent entry into the Hawaii market.
Now, for a limited time, those welcome bonuses just got a welcome boost. Rather than the typical 40,000 points after spending $1,000 in the first three months, you can earn 60,000 points after spending $2,000 in the first three months. Those 60,000 points are worth about $900 according to The Points Guy’s valuations, and they can be used to redeem any seat on any Southwest flight (yes, including its new Hawaii flights!), with no change fees, cancellation fees, or checked bag fees.
Veteran points collectors will remember that Southwest briefly offered its Companion Pass benefit for 2019 as part of a welcome offer earlier this year, and yes, that was an unbeatable promotion. But if you only fly once or twice on Southwest this year, you might actually prefer the 60,000 points on $2,000 of spend to the old offer’s 30,000 points and Companion Pass on $4,000 of spend. That extra 30,000 points could easily buy at least a couple of extra flights, and since points don’t expire (as long as you have some sort of account activity every 24 months), you won’t be under any pressure to spend them by the end of 2019.
Personally, Southwest Rapid Rewards points (usually transferred from my Ultimate Rewards account) are my first choice for booking a flight, especially if my dates are a little fuzzy. If I need to change to a more expensive flight, I only have to come up with the difference in points. If I change to a cheaper flight, I actually get the difference in points refunded to my account. And if I need to cancel entirely, I get all my points back instantly, with no fuss. For a non-elite status flyer like myself, no other airline comes close to offering that kind of flexibility.
As a reminder, there are three Southwest Rapid Rewards credit cards, and all include the same 60,000 point welcome bonus, but there are some differences:
- Southwest Rapid Rewards Priority Credit Card -$149 annual fee, includes a $75 annual Southwest travel credit, 20% back on in-flight purchases, four boarding upgrades per year (subject to availability), and a 7,500 point anniversary bonus, and no foreign transaction fees.
- Southwest Rapid Rewards Premier Credit Card - $99 annual fee, includes a 6,000 point anniversary bonus and no foreign transaction fees.
- Southwest Rapid Rewards Plus Credit Card - $69 annual fee with a 3,000 point anniversary bonus.
For reasons we’ve outlined here, we generally think that the Priority card is the one to get. Assuming you spend that $75 annual travel credit, you’re essentially getting more annual bonus points than the Premier card for less money, plus four free boarding position upgrades to boot.
Update: Now to $54, which is still a good deal.
The Philips OneBlade is the shaver of choice for most of the men on our staff, and one of the most popular products we’ve ever listed. But whether you already love yours or are curious to try it out, Amazon’s running a great deal on the upgraded Pro version today.
