We see a lot of deals around the web over on Kinja Deals, but these were our ten favorites today.
Head over to our main post for more deals, and follow us on Twitter and Facebook to never miss a chance to save. You can also join our Kinja Deals Community Facebook group to connect with your fellow deal hunters.
#1: Board Games Galore
If your board game collection is gathering dust, it’s time to freshen up your options with Amazon’s one-day Gold Box deal.
Over 50 games are available, including popular titles like Ticket to Ride, Patchwork, Dead of Winter Crossroads, and Lost Cities, just to name a few. Just note that like all Gold Box deals, these prices are only available today, and the best stuff will likely sell out early, so don’t roll the dice by waiting.
#2: Chase Cashback
Similar to the special Walmart and Best Buy Chase Pay promotions we shared a few weeks ago, you can now get 2,000 Chase points (worth $20 in cash back at a bare minimum) when you spend $20 at eBags and use Chase Pay to check out. Terms and conditions here and here.
At a base level, if you find something for around $20—like this TRTL travel pillow, or these packing cubes—and use this promotion, you’ll almost be getting your purchase for free.
Update: Get FREE ShopRunner shipping for two years through this link.
But if you have either a Sapphire Preferred or Sapphire Reserve card, the points you earn from this promotion can be used for travel rather than cash back, meaning they could be worth a lot more than $20. For example the Sapphire Reserve allows you to book travel directly at a rate of 1.5 cents per point, making this promotion worth a minimum of $30 in travel. And if you find a really good partner redemption (like I did for my trip to Hawaii), it could be worth a lot more.
Just be sure to hit the Chase Pay button at checkout, and use either a Chase Freedom, a Freedom Unlimited, or a Sapphire Preferred card to pay. It doesn’t appear that the Sapphire Reserve is eligible, though once you get the points, you can transfer them into your Reserve account for travel redemption purposes.
#3: PC Gaming Gear
Amazon’s back at it again with another PC gaming-focused Gold Box deal, this time with great deals on monitors, motherboards, routers, and tons of full-on gaming laptops and PCs, including an all-time low price on this maxed out 17" Razer Blade Pro.
If you don’t feel like dropping nearly $4,000 today, there are a lot of other affordable luxuries in here, including the HyperX Cloud II headset for $70 (also compatible with PS4), Corsair’s Strafe mechanical keyboard for the same price, and a 24" gaming monitor with 2ms response for just $100.
Oh yeah, that 49" curved Samsung ultrawide you saw on Cyber Monday? That’s back too.
For the rest of the deals—and there are a lot of them—head over to Amazon.
#4: Dyson Vacuums
For a limited time, Dyson’s eBay outlet is taking an extra 20% off any $25 order (maximum $50 discount) with promo code PHOLIDAY20, including vacuums, fans, and even hair dryers. They sell a lot of new stuff on eBay, but the best deals are on the refurbs. Either way, they’re sold directly by Dyson; this isn’t a sketchy third party situation.
My pick is the refurbished V6 Motorhead for $176. I bought the V6 Animal a months ago, and it makes quick work of all the pet hair on our furniture.
That same PHOLIDAY20 code will work with a number of other (admittedly less exciting) sellers as well, including Klymit, KitchenAid, Worx, and more, so check out the full list on this page.
#5: Twillory Shirts
“No-iron shirts” have been around for so long that it seems almost ridiculous to buy anything else. Twillory takes that notion one step further by taking that no-iron notion and adding a bespoke feel.
These deals are all $10 more expensive than Black Friday, but with all three deals, you can add a set of Twillory’s unique bottle opening collar stays to your cart to get it for free. These stays sell for $19, and make great gifts, so you’re coming out ahead.
- Two shirts for $99 with code KINJA2
- Four shirts for $179 with code KINJA4
- Five shirts for $209 with code KINJA5
Those codes should work with all the shirts they sell, so mix, match, and get creative (and don’t forget those collar stays). Shane reviewed these shirts over on Gear, so head over there to learn about what makes them so great.
#6: harry Potter Illustrated
For you muggles who are unfamiliar, they’ve been going back and releasing one stunningly illustrated hardcover Harry Potter book per year. Last year’s release was Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets which is on sale for $15 today, a ~$9 discount from its usual price. Plus, the illustrated edition of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is at an all-time-low price of $13. Both would make golden-snitch-catching gifts.
The Prisoner of Azkaban is a pretty good deal at just $17, and Sorcerer’s Stone is unfortunately not on sale, but here’s the link if you’re wanting to get the whole set.

#7: Cable Modems
Paying a monthly modem rental fee to your ISP is about as financially prudent as spending a few Bitcoin on lunch in 2014, so if you haven’t already, today’s a great day to buy your own.
This 16x4 DOCSIS 3.0 model from TP-Link supports download speeds up to 680Mbps, which should be plenty fast for nearly every cable-based internet plan. It normally sells for around $70, but you can get it for $55 today.
Some people want their modem to double as a router—It wouldn’t be my choice, but more power to you—and this 24x8 modem will get the job done for most moderately sized houses and apartments. The modem supports download speeds from your ISP of over 1000Mbps, so, yeah, it should be pretty future proof. Today’s deal is about $30 less than usual.
#8: Target Winter Clothes
Winter is (slowly) approaching, so if you still haven’t checked to see if your coats from last year survived being shoved into the back of a closet, now’s the chance. Target is taking 50% off all their outerwear, including faux fur, down, and more. Kids and adults are included in the sale, but it’s today only, so you shouldn’t wait.
Plus, there’s 50% off winter accessories like gloves and scarves as well, so you can bundle up without spending...a bundle.
#9: ThinkGeek Calendars
Calenders are really underrated holiday gifts. ThinkGeek is taking up to 33% off (yeah, idk) a ton of great ones, like Super Mario Bros., Bob Ross, Star Trek, and more. Most of them come in at the $10 mark, which makes them ideal for stocking stuffers or Secret Santa gifts.
#10: Whiskey Stones
Give the gift of non-watered down whiskey with these discounted stainless steel reusable ice cubes.
Normally $15, you can take these home for just $10 with code KINJAW2E. This set comes with tongs and a tray, and they make great stocking stuffers. Cheers!
