TODAY’S BEST TECH DEALS
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.
If you somehow still own any TVs that don’t have smart apps or a streaming dongle plugged into them, you won’t find a better deal than the 4K and HDR-compatible Roku Premiere for just $29, down from the usual $40 (which itself is a bargain).
Walmart has it for $29, and Amazon has it for $30 with Prime shipping, but the Walmart one includes three months of free CBS All Access, which is worth as much as you’re paying for the dongle.
Pick up Samsung’s 512GB microSD card and never want for more storage on your Nintendo Switch ever again. With U3 write speeds, it’s ideal for 4K action cams too.
Let’s be clear here, 512GB is probably overkill for your Switch but $100 (the lowest price ever, by the way) is a small price to pay for never having to worry about the number of digital downloads you buy via the Switch’s online store, right?
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.
TODAY’S BEST HOME DEALS
Today only, Amazon is also discounting the RoboVac 15c to $180, or bundled with an Echo Dot for just $25 more. Cleaning-wise, it seems to be all but identical to the reader favorite 11s, but with the addition of Wi-Fi and Alexa smarts.
These Gold Box prices are the lowest we’ve seen on this model and bundle on Amazon. However, the discounts will only stick around until the end of the day, or sold out. Losing out on this deal would definitely... suck.
From growlers and howlers to tumblers and camp cups, Miir makes some of our favorite drinkware around, whether you’re hauling it into the backcountry, or sipping from it at home.
Today on Amazon, most of their wares (including the wine bottle and wine tumbler, which are usually excluded from these sales) are about 25% off their regular prices (prices vary a bit by color, in some cases), and our readers can save an extra 10% on anything they sell with promo code 10Kinjadeal. 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.
Mother’s Day is on Sunday, which means there isn’t a ton of time left to shop. If you’ve been stumped on what to get your mom, picture frames are always nice, but a little boring. Why not buy her a digital frame, so she doesn’t have to choose which child to showcase in her new frame.
The Nixplay Seed Digital Wifi Photo Frame has 10 GB of online storage and is currently about $45 off its regular price on Amazon. The frame is easy for kids to set up for their parents because you can share photos right from your phone to the frame with the Nixplay app for iOS or Android. So, if your mom calls you to ask you how to change the pictures for the 20th time, you can just do it for her.
Ring is best known for its security cameras and doorbells, but its indoor home security system is one of our favorite options without a monthly fee (but if you do want 24/7 monitoring, it’s only $10 per month). 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.
And oh yeah, they’re throwing in a free Echo Dot too. That means you can arm, disarm, and check the status of your system with only your voice. Larger systems with more sensors are also on sale (just select the one you want from the product page), some of which (like the $249 11-piece set) are cheaper than they’ve ever been before.
Don’t give up and go inside when it gets dark out. Instead, fill your outdoor spaces with this Sonnenglas LED Lantern, now on sale for $26. This sturdy glass jar charges up all day thanks to the sun, only to give off bright light for 12 hours at night (there’s also a USB charging option for cloudy days). Plus, a magnetic switch allows you to turn it on and off as you please. This lantern would certainly brighten up any outdoor cookout and campsite, or give your yard or patio a year-round decor glow up.
All foods are better fried, but because the world is a cruel place, fried foods are bad for you. If you are looking to fry without fear, look no further than this DASH Compact Air Fryer, now down to $59 in four colors, which uses hot air instead of oil to make everything extra crispy. It’s also technically an oven, making baking easier than ever, and it’s tiny enough to not be a countertop eyesore. You can even use it to reheat pizza. So order up one for yourself before this deal is burnt to a crisp.
Slim velvet hangers, as we’ve covered, are one of the five types of hangers you need in your life.
...the hook and the shoulders on slim hangers are designed to be, well, slimmer than standard hangers, which will maximize space in your closet. Also, most slim hangers are velvet-covered, which gives them a non-slip quality that their plastic counterparts don’t provide.
This pack of 50 is down to $18 0n Amazon today, within a dollar of the best price ever listed.
If you have virtually no counter space in your kitchen, organizing utensils and appliances can be a nightmare. There is only so much you can shove in the drawers before they overflow. If you’re looking for additional ways to organize and create space in a tiny area, a wall rack might just do the trick.
The YAMAZAKI Magnetic Kitchen Organization Rack will solve all of your tiny kitchen problems. It has six hooks you can use to hang spatulas, big spoons, and other cooking supplies. You can also store a dish rag or paper towels right on this. There’s even a small spice rack built on top, so you can easily access your most beloved spices.
Why should your smart speaker, toothbrush, candles, and potted plants take up precious counter space when you can just add a shelf to a power outlet? This thing installs on any standard power receptacle, holds 10 pounds, and is only $5 today with the code FFY2SFYQ.
Today only, this highly-rated Brother RSQ9185 Computerized Sewing and Quilting Machine is marked down to just $100, an all-time low. This particular refurbished model makes it easy by including 130 programmed-in stitches.
This current price is $20-30 cheaper than usual and could help you in the long-term, whether its mending your jeans to prolong its life or making your Project Runway dreams a reality.
TODAY’S BEST LIFESTYLE DEALS
Yoga mats are meant to roll up, but if that’s not how you roll, consider getting your downward dog on with this foldable Gaiam yoga mat for just $16. The 2-millimeter mat has seams that allow it to fold up without just flopping open, and it’s especially useful for travel, or really, any transporting at all, since it’s not exactly convenient to lug around a 5-foot long, rolled-up piece of PVC anywhere. (It will still roll, though, if you want it to.) Just consider how much zen this deal will bring to your yogi lifestyle. Can you say, Namaste?
It’s my personal philosophy that you should try out Philosophy’s line clean, effective, and honestly, amazing smelling products, and there’s never been a better time to do that than during the brand’s 40% off sale, happening today sitewide. So use promo code 40OFF, and pick up any product that catches your eye, like perhaps the acclaimed Purity Made Simple Pore Extractor Face Mask or the fresh floral Amazing Grace fragrance spray. No matter what skincare philosophy you abide by, you can’t go wrong with this deal.
True Religion jeans had a moment in the aughts, but the denim brand still holds up in 2019. And today, we’ve all been blessed with major True Religion discounts. Take up to 60% off a range of styles for men and women at Nordstrom Rack in continuation of your quest for the holy grail of jeans, because everyone know sliding on a quality pair is akin to a religious experience.
Queen Helene’s Mint Julep Masque is a pore-clearing, oil-absorbing cult favorite, and now, you can enjoy those same minty benefits in scrub form for just $2. Queen Helene Mint Julep Facial Scrub is a perfect physical exfoliator for acne-prone skin, and it contains glycerin for maximum moisturizing. At this price, I’d recommend buying two — or 10.
TODAY’S BEST MEDIA DEALS
Rakuten’s running another of its popular site-wide sales with 15% off all orders, with a $60 maximum discount with the promo code SAVE15. You can check out their promo page to scan all of the deals, but the beauty of this sale is you can “force” a sale on super new or rarely discounted products, like Triple A titles for the Nintendo Switch like Smash, controllers, and more.
This deal ends tomorrow, so act fast.
TODAY’S BEST GAMING DEALS
Have you ever wanted to own a headset designed by a Xenomorph? Well, buddy, you should check out the $50 Logitech G633 Artemis Spectrum headset.
This headset, meticulously designed by not-Jony Ive, features a lot of stuff gamers like, such as 7.1 surround sound, programmable buttons, a foldaway microphone, and, of course, RGB lighting. With both USB and 3.5mm jack connectivity, you can use your headset on PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and smartphone.
Best of all, it’s currently the cheapest we’ve ever seen on Amazon.
Pandemic Legacy is a co-op board game that raises the stakes by adding permanent (actually permanent) changes to the board as you play, and it’s amazing. Both season 1 and season 2 also happen to be on sale for $41 today, within $5 or $6 of all-time low prices.
Note: The different colors of each season are just that, color schemes. While there’s no functional difference between the editions, this allows you to keep two games going at once without getting confused.
Whether you buy all of your Xbox games digitally (there’s a console just for you, now!), or only pay for the occasional DLC pack and Fortnite skins, it’s worth keeping a few bucks in your digital Xbox wallet. For a limited time, if you buy a $50 Xbox gift card directly from Microsoft, they’ll toss in a $10 bonus for free, which is nearly enough to buy yourself a copy of Stardew Valley.
If you’ve ever looked at the standard Xbox controller and thought, “This needs more glowing lights,” hold on to your hat cowboy. Razer’s Wolverine Tournament Edition is currently marked down to its lowest price on Amazon.
So, what do you get for twice the cost of a regular Xbox One controller? A number of customization options including extra programmable buttons and it glows. Obviously.
Be warned, though, this $95 controller exclusively a wired controller, which is a total bummer for couch gaming. However for serious console/PC gamers, this shouldn’t be an issue, since a wired connection is still considered necessary for optimal performance.

DEALS YOU MAY HAVE MISSED
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 some better deals on these around Black Friday (if you were quick enough to snag them), $250 for 32GB is still a terrific price. If you ask me, it’s worth buying one of these for the express purpose of playing Civilization VI on the go.
The incredible Logitech MX Master mouse was the sequel to one of our readers’ favorite mice, and the new MX Master 2S is the sequel to the sequel.
You still get an ergonomic design, great battery life, and a mouse sensor that works on any surface, including glass. But the 2S increases resolution from 1,000 DPI to 4,000, and introduces Logitech’s flow software, which lets you switch between computers on the fly, and even drag or copy files or your clipboard from machine to machine.
Amazon’s marked the 2S down to $70 today, a price topped only by a one-day deal last year that brought it down to $60.
Sometimes the number of built-in LAN ports in your sexy, modern router isn’t enough. Luckily there’s a cheap solution: Networking switches.
This $17 Netgear 8-Port model is great option to add 6 additional ports to your current router. It’s rare that one with metal housing can be so cheap just as long as you clip the coupon on the page. So save yourself a future headache and invest, you won’t regret it.
Label all the things with this discounted label maker. Is this your brick of cheese or your roommates? Never guess again. It’s basically $15 for peace of mind.
Maybe after you make clear what’s yours, your roommate will stop using your honey. I mean, it’s a $10 bottle of hot honey... they can buy their own. Goddammit, stop touching my honey.
... um, yeah. Labels.
The HyperX Cloud II is one of our reader favorites, and today, Amazon is dropping the price on wireless version, the HyperX Cloud Flight Gaming Headset, to just $90.
This wireless unit promises immersive, stereo audio and 30 hours of battery life. Better still, you can use it for either the PS4 or the PC (sorry, Xbox users).
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.
Walmart’s discounting a ton of Google Home, smart lighting bundles, and Nest products to celebrate Mother’s Day.
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.
Everything you’d want to jump start a smart home from the shopping giant is on sale right now.
Choose from a $20 Echo Input (which adds Alexa to any speaker you want), $30 Echo Dot or an Echo Dot bundle with a TP-Link smart plug for $45 or Sengled light bulbs for $50.
To be clear, this is your standard fare sale. We’ve seen all of these prices before but they’re still solid bargains.
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.
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.
Olivers makes some of our favorite men’s activewear that doesn’t necessarily look like activewear, and now you can remake your entire wardrobe (relatively) cheaply with their limited time Mystery Box promotion.
Available until 5/8, or until sold out, you can either spend $150 to get a box with $300 worth of Olivers gear, or $275 to get a box worth $600. You do get to pick your size, but you don’t get to pick the colors or contents of the box. You do, however, know that it will include some combination of the following:
- Pants (Passage, Bradbury)
- Shorts (All Over Series, Base Series, Breakaway, Capital, Zuma)
- Tees (Convoy Series, Club, Terminal Series, Varsity)
- Midlayers/Outwear (Porter Series, Gate Jacket)
It’s all good stuff, and you’ll never get it for this cheap by any other means! It’s not eligible for returns or exchanges, however, so you’ll have to decide if it’s worth the risk.
If you’ve ever bought flowers online, you’ve probably taken a pause and a deep breath when you got to checkout and saw how much they cost to ship. It makes some sense—they’re delicate flowers, after all—and you ordered them anyway because you’re a good person, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt.
That’s what makes 1800Flowers’ Mother’s Day deal so tempting. If you use promo code FREESHIP on any of their Mother’s Day bouquets, and set delivery between 5/8-5/11, they’ll waive the shipping and service charges. So go ahead, treat your mom, she deserves it.
Update: This offer was supposed to expire Friday, but as of now, it’s still available.
Our readers’ favorite VPN recently raised prices for the first time ever, and the company’s best-value (and Kinja Deals-exclusive) three-year plan is going away at the end of the week, so this is your last chance to subscribe at the best per-month price available.
Three-year plans aren’t available to the general public at all, but if you click this link, you can get three years for $99, which works out to just $2.75 per month. That’s only $9 more than it was cost to the price hike, and while shorter plan lengths are available, none come close to the per-month pricing of this three-year membership. For example, the publicly available two-year plan costs about $84, and a month-to-month plan will set you back $10 per month.
If you subscribe to the three-year plan today, you’ll be able to continue to renew it at the same price for the life of your subscription, so this is a great chance to lock in a terrific deal.
Firstleaf is an online wine club that learns your preferences, offers tons of great wines from around the world, 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 right now in preparation for Mother’s Day.
Every new Firstleaf member gets an introductory delivery with six bottles of wine for just $40 with free shipping, and every box thereafter includes six bottles for $80, plus $10 shipping. But if you use this link when you sign up, 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. At the very least, you should send Mom the trial box for less than $7 per bottle. I mean, why wouldn’t you?
