Top Tech Deals

You don’t need to sell a kidney to afford noise-cancelling Bluetooth headphones; these 4 star-rated Cowin E-7s are just $39 right now, or $31 off with promo code AU2KA5OO.

They might not have the brand recognition of Sony or Bose, but these headphones pack in 30 hours of battery life, the ability to use them in wired mode if the battery dies, and yes, active noise cancellation that reviewers say works really well.

Polk Audio’s PSW10 has long been a go-to value pick for anyone building a home theater audio system, and you can pick one up for $90 on Amazon today, a match for the best price they’ve listed this year.

After much research, I bought this exact model several years ago, and absolutely loved it up until the day I replaced it with one of VIZIO’s surround sound bar systems. It’s not the best subwoofer out there by any means, but it’s eminently affordable, and should be more than adequate anyone who’s not an audiophile.

If you’re a little rough on your Lightning cables, Anker’s nylon-wrapped PowerLine+ is designed to stand up to some abuse, and the 6' model is three bucks off on Amazon today in white and gold. The best part though? It comes with a handy sleeve that keeps it from getting tangled up in your bag.

Once you’ve use a CyberPower’s swiveling surge protectors, every other outlet solution will feel inferior. Since it lets you position your plugs on the side, rather than sticking straight out, you can push furniture right up against the outlet. It’s a small detail that makes a huge difference. Today on Amazon, get it for just $8, or $15 for a model with two USB ports.

In celebration of pool season, Amazon’s offering all-time low prices on Sony’s new line of Bluetooth speakers, each of which includes IPX5 water resistance, great battery life, and the ability to connect multiple speakers together for room-filling sound. To help you understand the differences though, we’ve broken them all down below.

Sony XB10

The XB10 is basically a standard single-driver Bluetooth speaker, but with a few additional features like NFC pairing, the ability to connect two together for stereo sound, and a 16 hour battery. $48 is an all-time low, and roughly $10 less than usual.

Sony XB20

For $20 more, you get dual drivers (at the cost of battery life, which clocks in at 12 hours here), a single-color lightstrip that accents the speaker, and the ability to connect up to 10 (!!) speakers at once. It typically retails for around $100.

Sony XB30

The XB30 doubles your battery life to 24 hours, and upgrades the light strip to include multiple colors and a strobe feature, all controlled via an app. It usually sells for about $50 more.

Sony XB40

And finally, the XB40 adds additional lighting around the speaker cones, but otherwise seems to be exactly like the XB30. $148 is, amazingly, a ~$100 discount.

VPNs are in the news these days, and with good reason. So if you’re curious to sign up and start protecting your browsing history and personal data (or, you know, getting around websites’ geoblocks), NordVPN charges less per month than a typical trip to Starbucks.

NordVPN has long been one of the most popular and reliable VPN providers out there, and if you sign up for a one-year membership, promo code VIP70 will drop your annual price from $69 to $48. If you’re sure you want to commit, use this link instead to get a special two year plan for $79 with code 2YSpecial2017. Lifehacker has recommended Nord in some previous guides, but if you have any firsthand experience with the service, sound off in the comments!

We see deals on leaf-style HDTV antennas pretty frequently, but if you won’t settle for anything less than the brand that started the trend, you can score a huge deal on the amplified Mohu Leaf 50 today.

The Leaf 50 is rated for 50 miles, but keep in mind that that’s only are under ideal circumstances, and your actual range will likely be lower. But still, it’s just about the most powerful omnidirectional antenna you can get that doesn’t require outdoor or attic installation, and $28 is the best price we’ve ever seen, assuming you don’t mind buying an open-box model. Just be sure to use promo code Flash30 at checkout to save $12.

Top Home Deals

This Cuisinart Classic Round was only a few votes shy of taking home the title of your favorite waffle iron, and you can pick one up from Amazon today for just $22.

I probably make fresh waffles in my waffle iron every month or so, but in between, I’ve used it to make hash browns, pressed sandwiches, and even churros. Lifehacker has a ton of other suggestions too, including mozzarella sticks, 90-second cookies, pre-packaged cinnamon rolls, and even crispy bacon. So you see, calling this thing a waffle iron is practically a misnomer.

Here’s a stupid little thing that’ll make your life just a little bit easier. Joseph Joseph’s Double Dish is a clever little invention for eating edamame, olives, pistachios, or any other finger foods that leave behind scraps, and it’s just $11 on Amazon right now.

If you haven’t figured it out yet, you just fill the top bowl with the food of your choice, and drop the remains through one of three chutes into the bottom bowl. At the end of the day, it’s still two dishes to clean up, but it takes up less space on your table, it looks cool, and most importantly, you don’t have to stare at those disgusting olive pits during your meal. Today’s price is an all-time low, so get cracking.

Packing cubes can make organizing clothes and toiletries for your next trip a little less hellish, and this highly-rated set of four is only $16 today, complete with a bonus dirty laundry bag

Tiny keychain multitools are a dime a dozen, but not many of them actually look like...keys. This ingenious little Swiss+Tech multitool is the shape and size of a standard house key, but is actually three screwdrivers, two small knives, and a bottle opener. At $7, why not?

While it’s not as simple to use as a Nespresso, this Mr. Coffee espresso machine is incredibly affordable at $57 (especially considering it’s a dual shot and includes a milk frother), and doesn’t require expensive pods to use. Plus, its 15 bars of pressure are more than sufficient for a great shot of espresso.

This Sensi thermostat might not look like much, but you can control it with an app on your phone, or even with Alexa, meaning it’s basically an uglier Nest for less than half the price. No wonder it’s actually Amazon’s #1 selling thermostat.

Breville’s reader-favorite Smart Ovens almost never go on sale, but Amazon’s offering a rare discount on the most popular model today.

I got one of these as a wedding gift last year, and it’s every bit as good as advertised. In addition to the obvious use cases like toasting bread or cooking a frozen pizza, I basically use it as my “real” oven for any recipe I can fit, since it preheats significantly faster than a full sized oven, and doesn’t heat up the entire house.

It might not have the brand recognition of Waterpik, but this H2ofloss water flosser still boasts a 4.4 star review average from over 1,400 Amazon customers, and you can get it for just $32 right now. That even comes with 12 tips (six different kinds) to get you started. Go make your dentist proud!

OxyLED’s OxySense motion-sensing closet light is one of the best-selling products in Kinja Deals history, and it’s easy to see why. You can stick it anywhere, it turns itself on and off, and it’s super cheap. Today, add two individual lights your cart (not the 2-pack available on the page), and get both for $15 with promo code KINJA02L.

If you want a Big Green Egg charcoal grill, but don’t want to cash in your 401(k) to buy one, this Char-Griller alternative is down to $270 on Amazon today. That’s the lowest price in months, and a great investment for meat lovers everywhere.

The Char-Griller Akorn Kamado Kooker features a 306 square inch cast iron cooking surface (which is most similar to the $829 large Big Green Egg), and traps heat inside a heavily-insulated stainless steel body. Our deal researcher, Corey, owns a BGE, and I asked him about it on Slack:

And I use my BGE for about 70% of meat meals.

Probably 90% during the warm months.

Best Father’s Day gift I’ll ever get.

Lana jokes that she’s the one who benefits most because I cook on it all the time.

Worth the price just for its ability to cook pizza, IMO.

But pork chops, lions, tenderloin are beyond incredible on it.

Obviously, this isn’t the “real thing,” but the consensus among Amazon reviewers is that it’s at least nearly as good, which sounds like a decent compromise considering it’s less than 1/3 of the price, and comes with a stable cart and folding shelves, both of which you’d need to buy separately with the Egg.

Anova dominates the sales charts, but in many ways (raw heating power, looks, size, software quality), the Joule sous-vide circulator is actually the superior product, and Amazon’s running a rare $20 discount on it, for a limited time.

Promo code SOUSVIDETIME will take $20 off the original Joule White/Stainless Steel and the new Joule White. The White model is $20 cheaper to begin with, the only difference being the absence of steel accents; performance should be identical.

If you don’t have any idea what the hell I’m talking about or why you might want to buy this, Lifehacker has a great sous-vide explainer here. Spoiler alert: It’s incredibly simple, and the results are fantastic.

Everyone should keep an inverter in their glove box for powering laptops and other electronics in the car, and you can choose from two different deals from Aukey today for $19 or less. The more expensive model puts out 300W, while the 150W version is designed to fit in your cupholder, which is cool I guess?

Top Lifestyle Deals

If you’ve had your eyes on a Fitbit (may we recommend the Charge 2?), or wanted to get one for Dad, nearly the entire lineup is on sale right now on Amazon, with discounts ranging from $20 to $50.

Independence Day is less than a month away, and if you have a day out planned, this BOGO sale on swimsuits at Target can help. There are a tons of regular suits in there, but a lot of red, white, and blue styles if you want to get festive.

Rowing is one of the best workouts you can perform at home, so if you’ve got the space for it, you can save about $70-$90 on a highly-rated machine in today’s Amazon Gold Box.

The Sunny Health and Fitness magnetic rowing machine features eight different levels of resistance, a three year frame warranty, and most importantly of all, a fully padded seat. Just remember that this price is only available today, so get yours before this deal capsizes.

If you have a green thumb, or at least aspirations of one, Amazon’s here to help with great deals on a bunch of Scotts and Miracle-Gro products, today only. Inside, you’ll find potting soil, grass seed, pest control, spreaders, and more, all marked down to great low prices. This deal wilts at midnight though, so don’t spend too much time watching the grass grow.

BioLite makes some of the most insane and useful camping gear on the market, and you can save on their entire product lineup today with promo code BIOKINJA.

We have to start by pointing out the BioLite CampStove 2, which is an ultra-portable wood-burning stove that generates electricity while it cooks your meals. Yes, you can actually plug your phone into a 2 pound wood burning stove to charge it, or just let the heat charge a built-in battery pack that your phone can tap into any time. Shane wrote more about it here, including all of the accessories you need to get the most out of it.

For larger meals, check out the BioLite BaseCamp, which is large enough to cook an entire pizza.

The code will also work on BioLite’s NanoGrid line, which is an array of portable lighting products that can illuminate your campsite while also keeping your USB devices charged. You’ll want to start with the main NanoGrid unit, which acts as a hub for controlling all of the other lights in the lineup.

BioLite sells a ton of other little accessories to outfit your camping trip, so don’t forget to head over to their storefront and use promo code BIOKINJA to save 15% across the board.

Last year, our readers overwhelmingly said that Tommy Bahama makes the best beach chairs, but we’ve since learned that they never go on sale. Like, never. Until now that is. Choose from several different models today, all for roughly 20% off their usual prices. That’s money left over for fruity drinks.

Bar none, Sport-Brella is the ultimate beach umbrella, and Amazon’s discounting the blue model for just $41 today, if you’re willing to wait out a backorder.

Unlike a regular umbrella, Sport-Brella leans backwards and attaches to the sand with stakes, creating a kind of semi-private cocoon with enough space for a couple of chairs and a cooler. Best of all, it sets up in about five minutes (once you know what you’re doing), and can provide a full day’s worth of privacy and sun protection. Today’s price isn’t the best we’ve ever seen, but it’s a solid deal if you have a beach trip on the horizon.

This Amazon Beauty Sample Box will only set you back $12 (plus a $12 credit on select beauty items) and includes e.l.f. lipstick, facial wipes from Acure and simple, Neutrogena Hydro Boost Cleansing Gel, and more. Note, it’s exclusive to Prime members only.

Honestly, beauty sample boxes are the best way to try out new beauty buys, without spending way too much money on something you don’t know if you like.

It’s that time again. Nordstrom Rack has brought back their Clear the Rack sale and it’s full (and I mean FULL) of really incredible deals. Designer clothing, brands you’ve never heard of, everything an extra 25% off. Today’s the las day of the sale, so what are you waiting for?

Look, I’m not saying you should be giving yourself a haircut. I’m merely suggesting that with this $40 Wahl kit, you could. That price is one of the lowest ever listed, by the way. 

Amazon sample boxes are one of the only good things to come out of 2016, and they’re back at it again with a $10 box full of men’s grooming gear, plus a $10 credit to spend on over 130 select men’s grooming products on your next order. Assuming you use the credit, that basically means you got eight or more name-brand products for free.

Top Media Deals

If it won’t bother you too much to see James Bond as an overt racist, several of Ian Fleming’s original novels are on sale for just $7 each in Paperback today.

Top Gaming Deals

If you still don’t have your own Xbox One, this deal from Best Buy will help you get all you need in one shot. When you purchase one of their gaming bundles, they’ll throw in an extra controller and three months of Xbox Live for free. Their bundles include games like Minecraft, Battlefield 1, and more.

The GoSports Backyard Bocce Set is perfect for getting in fights with friends over resin balls and inches. And at $40, it’s just enough for you to get angry if someone gets mad and rolls a pallino into the pool.

Xbox Live Gold is basically a requisite add-on for your Xbox One, but don’t get suckered into paying the full $60. While supplies last, here’s an entire year for $44.
