Anker’s Nebula Capsule mini projector gets all the hype, but if its standard definition resolution and 100 lumen brightness won’t cut it for your portable cinema needs, the sharper and brighter (and larger) Nebula Mars line is deeply discounted in today’s Amazon Gold Box.
The Mars, the Mars II, and the Mars Lite are all included in the sale, and this chart can help you pick the best one for you:
The original Mars is actually the brightest of the three, but the Mars II has the best battery life, software, and automatic focusing. The Lite should have the same picture quality as the Mars II, but includes no built-in software, so you’ll have to plug in a streaming dongle of some kind to watch content.
Whichever one you buy though, you’ll get to watch movies outdoors, which makes every movie about four times more enjoyable. These prices are way lower than any other deals we’ve seen on these, so pick one out before the prices go back up tomorrow, and go enjoy the rest of the summer.
For one day only, Amazon’s matching its Black Friday discount on the 4K/HDR/Dolby Atmos-packing Fire TV.
While they last, you can snag the streaming
box stick dongle for $40, a $30 discount, and a match for an all-time low. This is one of the best streaming devices you can buy at any price, so if it’s been on your wish list, don’t miss this deal.
If you do a lot of work on your laptop in bed—hey, I’ve been there—this lap desk can make the experience much more ergonomic for just $19 with promo code 76VMX9OY. One side tilts to bring your keyboard to a better angle for typing, while the rest can stay flat to hold documents and snacks.
The Brother HL-3170CDW has all the features you’d expect from a Brother printer, including wireless networking (including AirPrint and Google Cloud Print), and the ability to spit out roughly 20 pages per minute, but with the added bonus of printing in color.
$175 is a little more than you’d spend on a monochrome printer, but that’s the best price Amazon’s listed since February, so it’s time to kiss that inkjet goodbye.
If you’re ready to make the leap to 4K (and if your computer can handle it), Amazon’s blowing out 28" Samsung monitors for just $250 today. It’s not an IPS panel, unfortunately, but that’s still one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on a 60Hz 4K display.
Amazon aficionados know that the company sells lightly used products at significant discounts under its Amazon Warehouse brand, and to celebrate back to school season, you can save an extra 20% at checkout.
Several categories are included in the sale, including computers, furniture, and Amazon devices, but it seems that a lot more items are eligible than you’d expect from advertised categories. For example, I got it to work on a DSLR, though it didn’t on a SONOS speaker. The search bar tool at the top of the page seems to return all Amazon Warehouse items, not just eligible ones, but it’s worth a shot if you have an out or production or rarely-discounted item you’ve had on your wishlist.

They aren’t Sony’s best noise canceling Bluetooth headphones—that honor goes to the $300 WH1000XM2s—but these wireless over-ears are still a fantastic deal for $98, or $50-$100 less than usual, and the same price we saw on Prime Day. The WH-CH700Ns run for up to 30 hours in wireless noise canceling mode, or you can plug them in with a 3.5mm cord to extend that to 50 hours. If you travel a lot, or just work in a noisy office environment, this is a sound investment.
Sennheiser’s HD 650 open back headphones are widely considered some of the best-sounding cans you can buy for under $1000, and the best chance to get them is when MassDrop drops a new shipment of the legendary HD 6XX.
The 6XX is basically exactly the same as the standard 650, but with a 6' cable rather than the original’s 10', which is actually a better length, in my opinion. The 650s are currently listed for $367 on Amazon, and have never been cheaper than $287, but MassDrop has a limited number units of the 6XX available for $200, while supplies last.
Best Buy just kicked off its Anniversary sale event, with deals available on things you’d expect like Apple products, 4K TVs, and Windows computers, plus some more interesting stuff like home appliances and Prime Day-like pricing on Amazon products.
Just note that these prices are only available through Saturday. Some or our favorites are included at the bottom of this post, but there’s a lot to sort through, so let us know what you got in the comments!
Its two-tone design might not be for everyone, but $65 is a very nice price for a racing-style desk chair with height and recline control. Just use promo code WOW5 at checkout to get the deal.
The best part of the Apple Watch might just be its ingenious, easy-to-change band system. While Apple’s own straps are hilariously expensive, third party ones are plentiful, varied, and very affordable. Today, you can get a handsome stainless steel strap (42 mm model only) in the color of your choice for just $19 with promo code 78UO5H8Y.
Apple hasn’t updated the iPad Mini 4 in a few years, but if you don’t need the latest and greatest processor, and you prefer the smaller footprint, Walmart’s taking $100 off the 128GB model today, the best price we’ve ever seen.
Or, for $50 more, you can opt for the 9.7" iPad fifth generation with the same amount of storage, and a processor that’s one year newer. It’s priced at $80 below its original MSRP, though unlike the iPad Mini, there is a newer model available.
Turns out, having a laptop with only USB-C ports means you need to carry a dongle with you from time to time. Who knew? Luckily, these $34 hubs from VAVA are designed to perfectly match your space grey (promo code KINJA8888) or silver (promo code KINJA7777) MacBook, and turn one USB-C port into an ethernet port, an SD card reader, an HDMI output, and three USB 3.0 ports. There’s even pass-through USB-C charging, so you’re not even really using up one of your precious ports.
Want to get started with Philips Hue? This two bulb kit is marked back down to $100 today, matching an all-time low. Those full-color bulbs usually sell for $50 each, and even on sale rarely dip below $40, so if you need a hub, this is a great deal.
Amazon’s Echo Dot is a great voice assistant, and a truly terrible speaker. But for just $20 (with promo code INV2YNO5), you can drop it into this speaker base, which replaces its puny 3W driver with a stereo pair of booming 10W drivers. Plus, the built-in 5,000mAh battery pack lets you move it all around your house, and even doubles as a smartphone charger.
We’ve seen power cubes with more ports and outlets from other manufacturers, but Anker’s take on the category has a few nice touches. While it leaves one side of the cube empty, it does come with adhesive pads that let you mount it on a wall or underneath a desk. It normally sells for $25, but you can get it for just $20 today ($1 less than our previous mention), no promo code required.
$60 for a Logitech Harmony remote is a great deal on its face, but the real reason to buy this model is the included Harmony Home Hub.
The Hub allows you to use your iPhone, Android device, or even an Amazon Echo to control everything a Harmony remote can (which is basically any piece of home theater gear you can think of). So even when you inevitably lose the included remote behind the couch cushions, you’ll still have multiple ways to take control of all of your home theater gear.
Bose’s wireless QuietComfort 35 noise-cancelling over-ears are basically a mute button for the rest of the world, and you can get them for $299 today, down from the usual $329. In addition to amazing sound quality and noise cancelation, they even work with Google Assistant, and as of a firmware update last week, Alexa too.
If you prefer in-ear headphones, the Bose QuietControl 30 Bluetooth earbuds are also on sale for $249, or $50 less than usual.

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:
- One month for $6 | Usually $7
- One year for $35 | Usually $40
- Three years for $90 | Not offered to the general public at all
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.
Amazon’s Gold Box is giving you the ultimate DIY bundle that would make any amateur hobbyist excited. The Silhouette Cameo 3 is a super powerful cutting machine and this bundle comes with everything you need to get your craft on, like Silhouette’s software, a sketch pen starter pack, a vinyl sampler pack, plus cutting blades.
The Cabeau Evolution S3 is the same shape, and made of the same memory foam material, as the standard Evolution. The only significant difference is the inclusion of two adjustable straps on the back that can hook into airplane seat headrests to keep the pillow (and thus, your noggin) in place as you drift off to sleep. You can even choose to position the pillow below the headrest (as pictured) to support your neck, or directly in front of it to surround your head.
The S3 is regularly priced at $40, the same as the standard Evolution, so there’s really no reason not to choose it, as far as I can see. Today’s $30 deal is also about as cheap as the old model ever gets, so I wouldn’t wait around for a better deal. Safe travels!
Little Giant ladders have some of the best reviews out there, and when it comes to ladders, you don’t want to be too stingy.
These multi-use ladders can folded into a few different configurations to suit your needs, like A-frame, full-extension, or 90-degree, and then they’ll lay flat for storage. Plus, the two on sale today have strategically-placed wheels, so you can easily roll these around and save your back.
You know those “Magic Erasers” that can wipe stains off seemingly any surface? They’re really just melamine sponges with a marketing budget, and you can get 20 off-brand (but well-reviewed) equivalents for just $8 on Amazon (after clipping the $1 coupon), an all-time low. I used these after moving into a new apartment last year, and they made quick work of all of the scuffs I made on the walls.
We’ve seen packs with more sponges for about the same price, but they usually ship from China, whereas these have Prime shipping, and are even eligible for Subscribe & Save. They’re also twice as thick as most of the inexpensive competitors on Amazon, so they should last longer and be easier to use.
Sheets & Giggles new bed sheets are made from eucalyptus trees instead of cotton, which is way better for the environment, and just as importantly, makes for really comfortable sheets. They’re already 10% off this month as a preorder special, but for a limited time, promo code GIZMODO will save you an extra 10% on top of that.
Want to know more? Check out our impressions over on The Inventory.
If you’ve ever been to a fancy cocktail bar, you’ve probably noticed drinks served with giant spheres of ice. If you want to recreate that experience at home, it’s surprisingly cheap and easy.
This Vogek sphere mold is just $9 today with promo code 5GEAEK2L, and if you take pride in your drinks, it’s worth every penny.
The area under your bed is valuable storage space, and this soft-sided containerorganizes your linens to slide under your mattress. Obviously, there are plastic containers out there designed to do the same thing, but the zipper closure on this model is better at compressing linens if you stuff a lot in there, and its striped sides won’t look too utilitarian if you can see it from certain angles in your bedroom. Use promo code LRZLE6DC to get it for $13.
This Masterbuilt electric smoker makes cooking jerky, brisket, or (insert meat of your choice) as easy as dropping in some wood chips and hitting a few buttons to set your temperature. And at just $114, you’ll have a lot of money left over to buy meats.
If you do your own oil changes, or would like to start learning, Walmart has several five quart bottles of Penzoil synthetic on sale today, and you can stack those savings with a $10 rebate from Penzoil. The best part? You can do the rebate entirely online, no stamps or licking required. Just double check that the bottle you’re buying is included in the promotion, and that it’s eligible for the full $10; some oil varieties have smaller rebates than others.
The conventional wisdom about visiting southeast Asia is that it’s expensive to get there, but cheap once you arrive. But what if it was also cheap to get there?

TripMasters (in partnership with Travelzoo) is offering nine night trips to Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Phuket starting at just $1,059, including airfare, hotels, and a flight between the cities. Prices vary by departure airport and date, but you do have a lot of flexibility here to choose your hotels and itinerary, including adding extra nights if you wish.
I have to say, I don’t think pressure washers ever crossed my mind as a market Anker might compete in, but here we are. Its 2100 PSI and 1.78 gallons per minute specs should be more than enough power to clean your car or driveway, and its 35' power cable and 26' hose mean you probably won’t even need an extension cord to go with it.
Anker’s home goods brand, Eufy, put its uber-popular copper string lights back on sale today for $10, one of the best prices we’ve seen on the version that includes a remote. If you don’t need the remote, you can get the same product without it for $5 with promo code EUFY0816. Personally, I’d spend the extra $5 for the remote, but you do you. Go make your patio pretty!
Reusable silicone bags are great for packing lunches, freezing foods, and yes, even for sous-vide, all while being way greener than disposable sandwich and freezer bags. Today on Amazon, get a four pack of microwavable, dishwasher safe bags for just $18 with promo code 20KINJADEALS.
Its regular $200 price tag is about what you’d expect with those specs, the current $150 list price is a really good deal, and promo code ANKERXLF makes it even more enticing at $120.
Update: Last day!
Why buy off the rack when custom tailored suits are so affordable, not to mention so fun to design? From now until Saturday at midnight, you can look your best with a custom suit from Indochino, our readers’ favorite custom clothing company by a wide margin. For a limited time, grab any suit from this page for just $299 with promo code KINJA18. That deal is exclusive to our readers, and it’s a match for the best price we’ve ever seen on Indochino suits.
For more info on this deal, click here.
A first aid kit is one of those things you should probably keep in your glove box, and you should definitely have at home, and at $13 for 299 pieces, there’s no excuse not to be prepared for minor accidents.
It includes bandages, gauze, medicines, an instant cold pack, and more, all tucked away in a refillable soft pack. You can thank us later.
David Archy might not be a household name yet, but they sell some of the most popular underwear and clothing basics on Amazon, and a whole bunch of it is on sale today.
You’ll find several different cuts here to fit your style, many in your choice of either soft and warm bamboo fiber, or light and airy micro modal. I own a few of both, and they’re absolutely terrific, especially at these prices. At this time of year, my pick of the bunch would be the micro modal boxer briefs, which are a steal at under $8 per pair.
Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost water gel sunscreen is a pretty good facsimile of Biore’s cult favorite (and personally life changing) Watery Essence sunscreen, with one notable difference: It’s actually sold in the U.S.
You can read more about the water-based sunscreens in my recent review, but spoiler alert: They completely changed my perceptions about what sunscreen can be. Amazon’s currently offering a $3 coupon on three-packs of Neutrogena’s version today, in both SPF 50 and SPF 30. It’s still fairly expensive as sunscreen goes, but once you try it, you’ll never buy anything else.
You don’t need any accessories to do push-ups, that’s sort of the point. But nevertheless! The freely-rotating Perfect Pushup system reduces stress on joints and works out some extra muscle groups, so you’ll get the most out of your workout. At $20, they’ve never been cheaper.
Stio makes some of the best technical apparel in the game, and as it should since it’s based in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Right now, you can get 20% off all their spring/summer collection with the code KINJA20, or if you’re eyeing something in the sale section, use the code KINJASALE10 and pick up an extra 10% off.
There’s no better time to give Urban Outfitters a second look than when they make all of their Out from Under bras and bralettes $16. Just add your favorites to your cart and watch the extra discounts at checkout.
The Timbuk2 Copilot is already one of your favorite roller carry-on bags, so why not pick one up for just $135, one of the best prices we’ve seen. You’ll be set with how to stuff as many clothes into a carry-on as possible.
You could download The Zodiac Killer on your Kindle for free today, but why would you when you already know that the killer was Ted Cruz all along?
If you’re going to buy your textbooks on Amazon anyway this year, be sure to use promo code TEXT10 at checkout to save 10% on any $100 textbook order (shipped and sold by Amazon.com), up to a maximum $50 discount. That might not seem like much, but for a semester’s worth of books, 10% savings could buy a whole lot of ramen and Natty Ice.
Everything you need to host a great poker night (except for snacks, drinks, and suckers) is only $37 today. That gets you 500 casino-quality clay chips, two decks of cards, and dealer and blind buttons, all in a heavy-duty case.
If you’ve got the space for it, this foosball table is only $111 at Walmart today, about $25 less than it costs at Amazon. It’s coming home!
This LEGO Darth Vader is very much not a traditional minifig. In fact, he’s over a foot tall, and made up of 168 pieces. $22 is an all-time low and $10 less than usual, so grab yours before Amazon alters the deal.
While most well-made USB-C chargers can charge a Nintendo Switch in portable mode, AmazonBasics made an AC charger that can run the dock as well, and it’s just $17 right now, or $12 less than Nintendo’s.
It has the exact same 39W output as Nintendo’s first party charger, plus “short-circuit protection, over-temperature protection, and over-voltage protection to protect your device.” Perhaps most notably, its cord is about a foot longer than Nintendo’s, so it should give you a little extra flexibility when setting up your dock or playing in bed.
If you like Monument Valley, and you like Nintendo, you should grab Captain Toad Treasure Tracker for the Switch. Unlike most first party Nintendo games, this one’s only priced at $40 MSRP, which is a steal on its own, but it’s down to just $35 today on Amazon.
If not just any old desk will do for your gaming battle station, this sleek, steel frame gaming desk from AKRacing is on sale for $200 today on MassDrop, in four different colors. In terms of features, there’s not much to speak of here other than cut outs on the front (so you can scoot closer) and the back (for cable management), but there’s no denying that it looks cool.
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 three bonus months when you buy a six month membership for $60. Xbox Game Pass grants you access to new releases like State of Decay 2 and Sea of Thieves, as well as classics like KOTOR and all of the Gear of War games. Even Fallout 4 is included now!
Just make sure you see the bonus months in the “special offers and product promotions” section of the product page.
If you have any notable holes in your Nintendo Switch game library, you can fill them today with rare discounts on first party Nintendo games. Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Mario Tennis Aces are all marked down to $45.
$8 is cheaper than a lot of standard sized mouse pads, but today, that gets you a massive 2.5' x 1' model that can accommodate your keyboard as well. So luxurious! Just be sure to use promo code 8Q7ZVFQZ at checkout to save a couple bucks.
With few exceptions, Nintendo Switch console discounts aren’t really a thing. Today, though, you can save up to $40 by bundling Nintendo’s latest and greatest console with the Nintendo Labo kit of your choice.
The Commodore 64 Mini finally comes out this October, and while shortages aren’t guaranteed like they would be for, say, a new Nintendo Classic mini console, it never hurts to preorder.
The half-sized scale model C64 Mini includes 64 games onboard, with the ability to add your own as well. Lock in your order now for $80, then drop your favorite C64 game suggestions in the comments below.
When these 3/4-sized Arcade1Up arcade cabinets first went on preorder for $299, we thought it was a mistake, since they were supposed to cost $399. At this point though, it seems clear that $299 is in fact what they now cost, but inventory is still limited, since they were out of stock for awhile.
Anyway, they’re all back now, and they’re still $299, so if you want one, now’s your chance.
