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: PC Gaming Sale
Whether you’re building a new PC, upgrading an old one, or just need some tech accessories, today’s one-day Amazon sale is worth a look. Inside, you’ll find PC components like graphics cards, power supplies, and motherboards, but also accessories like monitors, gaming mice, and a backpack. There are even a couple of pre-built gaming desktops in there, including a Corsair One Pro for $600 off (we reviewed the Corsair One Elite here).
Just remember that like all Gold Box deals, these prices are only available today, or until sold out.
#2: Instant Pots
If you want an Instant Pot pressure cooker in time for Thanksgiving dinner prep (you do), the standard 6 qt. model is down to $80 right now ($20 less than usual), and the family-sized 8 qt. is down to $90, from its usual $140.
In addition to pressure cooking (which is a damn miracle), this is also our readers’ favorite slow cooker, and one of their favorite rice cookers too. To put it simply, it’s one of the most versatile kitchen gadgets you can own. I turned some rock-hard frozen chicken breasts into fork-tender shredded chicken in about 20 minutes last night, including preheating. I didn’t thaw them, I just threw them into the Instant Pot. It’s like cheating.
#3: Ghost Paper
Even (or perhaps, especially) in the age of laptops and tablets, many people prefer the tactile experience of jotting down notes with an actual pen and paper, and the most tactile experience of all comes from the Ghost Paper Notebook.
Rather than simply printing lines on the sheet to keep your letters straight, Ghost Paper’s lines are very slightly embossed, giving your pen an actual base from which to start each character. We tried one of these out and loved it, and you can get your own notebook for $5 off today with promo code KINJA1018.
Ghost Paper also comes in stationery form now, and you can get a set for just $10. That’s half the usual price, and the discount is due to a defect on the cartons that hold the paper and envelopes, though those are in perfect condition, which is all that really matters. Just add it to your cart, and you’ll see the discount at checkout.
#4: Ecobee3 Lite
While it doesn’t have the brand recognition of Nest’s learning Thermostat, the Ecobee3 Lite Smart Thermostat one-ups its most popular competitor by pairing with wireless remote sensors that you can place elsewhere in your house, giving the thermostat a more accurate picture of your home’s overall temperature. Plus, it’ll work with Siri via HomeKit, and your Amazon Echo too.
Just note that this is the “Lite” version of the Ecobee3, which doesn’t detect occupancy, can’t control accessories like dehumidifiers, and doesn’t include a room sensor like the Ecobee3, but today’s $139 price for the thermostat is a solid $30 less than usual, and the best price we’ve ever seen.
#5: GoPro Hero
If you have any big outdoor adventures planned for the end of summer, you can capture them with GoPro’s 2018 HERO camera, down to an all-time low $154 at Amazon today. It doesn’t shoot in 4K, but it does have a built in touchscreen and can go underwater without any additional housing, making it more than enough action cam for most people. Who knows, maybe you’ll even capture nature fighting back.
#6: Laser Distance Measure
Why measure distances with a tape measure when you can measure them with a laser? This model from Bosch is down to its best price of the year, and can measure distances up to 120 feet to within 1/16 of an inch, and it can even calculate area and volume for you, if your middle school math skills are feeling rusty.
#7: Anker Lightning Cable
Anker’s nylon-wrapped PowerLine+ Lightning cables look better, feel nicer, and last longer than the ones you can buy from Apple. Oh yeah, and they cost half as much on sale. Get the 3' red model for just $9 today with promo code ANKER293, complete with a pouch.
#8: SSD Enclosure
If you have any old hard drives or SSDs gathering dust, this $11 enclosure can turn it into a handy USB-C external drive. No tools are required: just pop in the drive, and plug it in.
#9: Tailgate Grill
Who doesn’t want to roll their grill up to a BBQ like a piece of luggage? This portable grill by Coleman is literally called the Road Trip and it’s only $125 at Walmart today, in red. Even with its 285 sq. inch cast iron cooktop, it collapses into a super portable, rolling tailgate machine.
#10: Red Dead Bundle
Red Dead Redemption 2 pulls into station in just over a month, and you can take in all the natural splendor by playing it on a PS4 Pro . This console bundle doesn’t have a unique design like the recent Spider-Man console did, which may be a good or bad thing, depending on your preferences. But what it does have is the game, essentially for free with the purchase of the $399 console.
