Apple will happily sell you AirPods with a wireless charging case for a hefty markup, but if you’re happy with your existing AirPods, this gadget adds wireless charging to the standard charging case. Unfortunately, this is a case for your case, not a replacement case in and of itself, so it’ll take up a little extra room in your pocket.
Normally priced at $20, it’s down to $16 today on Amazon.
Okay, don’t take us literally. You obviously can’t walk into a movie theater and start using this Marshall Kilburn II Portable Bluetooth Speaker, but you can physically carry it with you anywhere. The speaker offers 20+ hours of music and is equipped with Bluetooth 5. 0 apt technology for wireless music play. If you’re low on juice, it has a quick-charge option that gives you two more hours of playtime. As a Marshall speaker, the Kilburn II offers multi-directional sound via Bluefin stereo sound, with a frequency range of 52 - 20,000 Hz.
If you’re still wiping drool off your face after Samsung’s recent Galaxy Note10 announcement, you can get up to $150 in bonus cash to spend with Samsung by preordering your phone now.
You can preorder your device here, and then follow the instructions once you receive it to get your credit for the Shop Samsung app, which includes everything from headphones and smartphone accessories to TVs and washing machines.
Preorders of the Galaxy Note10 are eligible for a $100 credit, while Note10+ owners can claim the maximum $150, which can help ease the sting of the latter’s $1,100 starting price.
Back in March, Private Internet Access (our readers’ favorite VPN service) raised its prices for the first time ever. And while our readers can still get an exclusive 3-years for $99 plan, they just lowered their other plans back to their old prices for a limited time.
The reason this is a big deal is that you can renew your membership as many times as you want at whatever price you originally paid. Once the prices go back to normal, you’ll still be locked into the lower rate.
Here are the new (old) promotional prices, along with what you’d normally pay:
- 1 month: $6.95 (down from $9.99)
- 1 year: $39.95 (up from $71.88)
Clearly, the annual plan is the sweet spot here if you don’t want to commit to the three-year plan, but $6.95/month for 10 simultaneous connections, clients for just about every conceivable device, and servers in 32 countries (foreign Netflix, anyone?). We aren’t sure when the prices will go back up, so you probably want to lock in your account ASAP.
As you may know, we run a weekly co-op where we poll our readers to see what their favorite products are. This week, we asked about pillows. Many adults have strong opinions about pillows and the Casper Pillow happens to be one of them. Right now, it is $4 off on Amazon. Obviously, this is not a huge deal, but the pillow rarely ever goes on sale at all. Since it is a reader favorite, we wanted to alert the masses. The Casper pillow has a 100% cotton cover with a breathable percale weave to increases airflow to keep it cool. It has a pillow-in-pillow design that is packed with microfiber fill to provide support and comfort.
Here’s what one fellow reader had to say about the Casper Pillow on The Inventory:
Perfect combination of fluffy, supportive, and stays cooler than any other pillow I have owned. - Wholandia
If you love this pillow or one of the four other finalists, you still have time to vote on this week’s co-op to get it to #1.
Sure, August is already here and moving fast. You still need a fan, though. It may be hot where you live until well into October or you might just like to have a fan on even if it is cold outside. Whatever your vices might be, you’ll want to hop on this Honeywell deal ASAP. You can get two Honeywell QuietSet Whole Room Tower Fans for only $60 on Amazon. Included in the two-pack is the black and white fan, which have eight speeds and remote control. If you hate a fan that is loud while oscillating, many Amazon reviewers have said this actually is a quiet tower fan.
Have you ever felt like your dog might not be that bright? Maybe you’ve told them to go get their toy to play but they came back with a sock? Yeah, plenty of dog owners have been there. If you want to give your pet’s brain some much-needed stimulation, the Pet Zone IQ Treat Ball is a great way. It is only $6 and will hopefully add a few points to your dog’s IQ. If not, at least they’ll get to eat some treats and have fun.
If you can’t start your day without a shot (or three) of espresso, buying a nice machine (i.e. one that you’ll actually want to use) for your home can save you money in the long run compared to going to a coffee shop every day. Hell, it might even allow you to retire some day.
I kid, but there’s something very satisfying about supplying your own caffeine fix in the morning, and the highly rated Breville Bambino Plus is a space-efficient and beautiful appliance that can make you a perfect shot every time, and can also steam your milk. At $403 (down from $500), it’s never been cheaper on Amazon.
Cold brew coffee is basically the only kind of coffee I like, and when there wasn’t a Starbucks readily available, I’d been using the popular Takeya cold brew pitcher for over a year to make it at home. That all changed when my mother-in-law got me OXO’s alternative as a gift a couple of years ago, and it quickly became one of my favorite possessions.
The Takeya is fine. Good, even, especially for under $20. But the reader-recommended OXO is absolutely stellar. The video above tells you everything you need to know about how it works, but I promise you that the coffee you get after 24 hours of steeping is potent, delicious, and and can easily last you over a week, even if you don’t dilute it as much as OXO recommends.
Its MSRP is $50, and as an OXO product, that’s about what you’ll typically pay. Right now though, you can get it for $40. They offer two options: the brewer with 10 filters, and the brewer with 50 filters for a lot more money, but don’t be alarmed. The paper filters are totally optional, and I’ve never used them.
If your garage is the de facto auto shop for all of your friends and family members, today’s Autel deals can take your repair skills to the next level. The sale includes everything from basic code scanners to high-end diagnostic tablets, and everything in between, so if you’re serious about car maintenance, you’ll probably find something you can use.
It’s not hard to figure out why the LÍLLÉbaby Complete All Seasons is one of our favorite baby carriers for hiking (or for just walking around with a baby, generally). It can be used in six different positions as your kid grows, and its breathable mesh design means you won’t have to drench your kid in your own sweat.
It almost always sells for $140, but today on Amazon, you can adopt it into your childrearing product family for $120.
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 $56 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.
In 2o19, it may feel like every day is CBD Day, but today, August 8, it’s actually National CBD Day. Wishing you peace and chill vibes on this blessed holiday!
To celebrate, acclaimed CBD purveyor Sunday Scaries is taking 30% off sitewide, so you can stock up your CBD stores with everything from gummies (both vegan and non), tinctures, candy, and even energy shots. Use promo code CBDDAY to apply the discount to your order, and get ready to feel calm as hell. Happy CBD Day to all!
REI Outlet is always a good place to look for top quality brands at closeout prices, but that’s especially true during the site’s back to school sale.
Now through 8/12, hundreds of products are marked down by up to 70%, including some gear from ExOfficio, Outdoor Research, The North Face, prAna, and a lot more. There are a lot of products to sift through, but you can use the filtering options on the site to sort by gender, brand, size, and more. We suspect the best stuff will be gone long before 8/12, so take a gander at the sales now while you still can.
Makeup from the iconic MAC Cosmetics brand rarely goes on sale, but right now, 200 products are marked down at Nordstrom Rack. Save big on several eyeshadow and highlight palettes, lip sets, lipsticks, blushes, concealers, lashes, individual shadows, brushes, and so much more. At these prices, the best stuff will surely start to sell out, so be sure to stock up before this MAC rollback leaves the Rack.
We all love to hate Crocs, but guess what! Those lightweight, hole-y, rubber-y slides are cool now, thanks to the always groundbreaking runway scene and one Post Malone. And you too can be hip to the trend thanks to this sale: Over 250 clearance styles are an additional 50% off, no promo code required. In case you haven’t noticed, Crocs also makes other shoes that barely even look like Crocs, not to mention, they’d make for some great pool slides this summer. So go ahead and stock up on Crocs, because fashun.
Bringing a hair dryer along on your travels isn’t usually an option. But with the T3 Featherweight Compact Hair Dryer, it’s totally feasible. And not to blow your mind or anything, but the white dryer is on sale on Amazon for $75, the lowest price we’ve ever seen.
This dryer folds up and comes with a travel tote and cord wrap for easy transportation. Not to mention, it’s super light, so not only it is easy to carry around, it also makes drying your hair less of hassle (let’s be honest, hair drying can be a pretty serious arm workout). And while they may be small, these high quality dryers are as mighty as they come, thanks to T3 Tourmaline SoftAire technology that blasts out a high volume of ion-enriched air for a quick dry, more shine, and less frizz. So don’t write this deal off as being full of hot air; it’s a blowout you won’t want to miss.
Sure, now’s ideal time of year to be hanging out outdoors, but good sunglasses are timeless. And there’s no better time than now to slide on a brand new pair of Ray-Ban shades from Nordstrom Rack, since the iconic eyewear brand is having its day in the sun with half off a wide selection styles. Now don’t be shady; shop this deal now so you can enjoy the summer sunshine while it lasts.
Summer is here, but let’s be real: You’ll probably still need a jacket for cool nights, and you’ll definitely need one when fall arrives. And since Mountain Hardwear is taking 65% off the original price on select items, you could probably use many of the on-sale items right now and for future winters to come. So use promo code MHWAUG65, and load up on outerwear to keep you toasty warm the next time you step outside.
Big, plush bath towels have their place, but that place is not in a suitcase, or at the beach, or even in particularly humid bathrooms where they’ll never get dry. But luckily, these are places where Turkish Towels thrive.
Turkish Towels use a thin Turkish cotton that’s still incredibly strong and absorbent, and they look great to boot. I’ve owned a few of these for years, and especially enjoy pulling them out this time of year when regular towels always tend to feel just a little bit damp and gross. Pick one up starting at $22 (down from $35) during this limited time Huckberry sale.
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 8/7, 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, Transit, Bradbury, Base Series)
- Shorts (All Over Series, Capital, Base Series, Breakaway, Capital, Zuma)
- Tees (Convoy Series, Club, Terminal Series, Varsity)
- Midlayers/Outwear (Transit, 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.
Looking for chairs for your next camping trip? It is time to get yourself a Camp Chair from Kawartha while they have this great deal. You can get two chairs for the price of one discounted chair during Kawartha’s BOGO Camp Chairs event. Use the promo code KinjaCCBOGO at checkout to get yourself two new chairs. The Camp Chair is lightweight and compact, making it is easy to pack up and carry home. The adonized aluminum frame is durable but won’t rust if you get the chair wet. The fanged feet prevent the chair from sinking into soft grounds like sand or mud. It even comes with pockets, if you need a place to store your phone.
Update: The 85g sunscreen has gone up to $16 in price, while the 50g is still a blissful $8.
Does your skin turn a nice tomato red after only five minutes of sun exposure? You better stock up on some sunscreen now before you’re assaulted by UV rays all summer long. Thankfully, a cult-favorite Japanese sunscreen is currently on sale.
You can get a regular bottle of Biore UV Watery Essence for $8, an extra large bottle (1.7x the normal size) for $16, or
three of the regular sized bottles for $25. Those are some of the best prices we’ve seen, and while I realize the single bottle is a slightly better deal per ounce than the 3-pack or the extra large bottle, it does have a tendency to sell out, which is why we’re linking to all three options. The 50 SPF sunscreen is pretty literal to its name and is said to feel like water when applied to your skin.
Here’s what Shep McAllister had to say about it on The Inventory:
As far as sunscreen goes, the only thing I really knew about it was that I didn’t like it, and given the option, I would usually just opt to stay indoors until the UV index fell to around 3 or 4, or until someone invented a sunscreen pill, whichever came first.
That all changed when my wife introduced me to Biore Watery Essence sunscreen. It’s SPF 50 (the bare minimum for my needs, thank you very much), waterproof for 80 minutes, and feels like rubbing water on your skin. Cool to the touch, it rubs in effortlessly, and doesn’t come with the unpleasant smell or zincy stickiness of pretty much every other sunscreen I’ve used. About two minutes after putting it on, I’ve usually completely forgotten about it, which is a compliment of the highest order.
Tool is coming out with its first new album in 13 years this month, and preorders for the Limited Edition are on sale for $38 right now, down from the original $45, and with Amazon’s preorder price guarantee if it gets any lower prior to release.
This isn’t just any CD. In fact, it’s unlike any album packaging I’ve ever seen:
The album will be available digitally, and in a special Limited Edition physical package that includes a CD in a tri-fold Soft Pack Video Brochure featuring a 4" HD rechargeable screen with exclusive video footage, a USB charging cable, a 2 watt speaker and a 36 page insert book and MP3 download card.
You don’t have to be a music major to get an extensive musical education, thanks to Amazon. Right now, Prime Students can enjoy Amazon Music Unlimited for just $1 per month—because you should be putting your money toward more important things, like tuition and books and stuff. You’ll gain unlimited access to over 50 million songs on-demand, with the ability to listen offline and via Alexa. Finally, all those hours in class have paid off.
Amazingly, of the three major game consoles in 2019, only one (the PS4) lets you just plug the included controller into a USB cord to recharge it. The Xbox One gamepads still require you to use AA batteries (what is this, 1998?), and the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con controllers need to be attached to a Switch to juice up their batteries.
Luckily these discounted controller charging docks simplify things quite a bit. The Xbox One docks (identical save for their price tags and colors) include two rechargeable battery packs that take the place of those aforementioned AAs, allowing you to recharge two gamepads at once with the dock. It doesn’t totally absolve Microsoft of that baffling decision, but it helps.
The Nintendo Dock can recharge four Joy-Con controllers at once (Super Mario Party, anyone?), no Switch required. Or you can remove two of those Joy-Cons, and replace them with a Pro controller if you don’t have a USB-C charger handy. At $11, it’s also cheaper than just about any Nintendo accessory you’ve ever bought.
Just note that like all Gold Box deals, these prices are only available today, or until sold out.
If you’ve somehow gone this long without buying a Nintendo Switch, you can fix that today for one of the best prices ever. This one’s refurbished, but you can’t beat a $230 price tag.
Once you’ve locked in your order, you can start shopping for games. Kotaku has an always updated list of their 12 favorites here, but trust me, there are more than 12 games worth buying.
You’ll also want a microSD card for downloadable titles.
The Switch Pro controller isn’t just one of the best ways to control your Nintendo Switch, it might be one of the best gamepads ever made, period. If you have a Switch and still haven’t picked one up, $62 is about $7 less than usual. It’s not the best deal we’ve seen, but it’s not bad, as far as Nintendo prices are concerned.
If you’re thinking “but I have a pair of Joy-Con and the grip thing; what do I need this for,” know that I felt the same way for a long time. But when I finally caved and bought a Pro controller for a Super Smash get-together a few months ago, there was no turning back. It’s so much more comfortable to hold, and the buttons are so much bigger and nicer to press. I’m angry that I waited so long.
If you didn’t buy enough years for $40 back on Black Friday or Prime Day, you can get the exact same price today on PlayStation Plus from eBay today in celebration of E3. If you own a PlayStation 4, or are planning to buy one soon, the only question is how many of these membership years you should buy, not whether you should buy them.

That Amazon gift card offer on Prime Day just wasn’t enticing enough for you, was it? If you’ve never bought an Amazon gift card on Amazon’s website before, you’re in luck. Yes, those of us who’ve picked up Amazon gift cards at the grocery store weren’t being dumb. Right now, when you buy $50 worth of Amazon gift cards, you’ll get a $15 credit to your Amazon account. It does not need to be one $50 gift card, you can get five $10 gift cards, 10 $5 gift cards, two $25 gift cards... you get the point. The gift cards just need to add up to $50 and need to be purchased in the same order.
In order to get your credit, you’ll need to use the promo code 19GIFTCARD or you can hit “apply code to your account” on the terms page for this promotion. The $15 credit will be applied to your account two to three days after the gift card or e-gift is sent. You can choose to set up an e-gift card delivery for a later date, it just needs to be sent by December 22, 2019.
The Carboné Wallet, from The Italian Leather Company, isn’t a dramatic reimagining of the wallet category, but it is a very good bifold.
Built from—you guessed it—Italian leather, the most obvious design feature is the carbon fiber outer shell. This obviously makes the wallet incredibly durable and strong, but mostly, it just looks really cool. The carbon fiber is sewn into the calfskin leather with double stitching, and oil edging ensures that the sides won’t get raggedy for a long time.
Contrary to trend towards smaller, minimal wallets (and I’d argue, contrary to the thesis in the wallet’s product video), the Carboné can hold up to 15 cards across four slots, plus 30 bills in any denomination in the oversized cash slot. That should be enough space for all but the most obsessive credit card hoarders. And as you’d expect in this day and age, all of those cards are RFID-protected to combat card skimmers.
The Carboné already wrapped up its crowdfunding campaign, but can still be preordered at a discounted price of $59 from Indiegogo InDemand, with shipping expected in December.
Flint and Tinder doesn’t just make our readers’ favorite hoodie, though they do make that. They offer just about every kind of menswear under the sun, and it’s all made from premium materials, and 100% sourced and made in the USA.
Huckberry (the exclusive retailer of the brand) is currently running a wide-ranging “Last Few” sale on a bunch of different styles ranging from board shorts to underwear to henleys to hoodies (but not that hoodie, unfortunately). As you’d expect from a final clearance sale, some styles aren’t available in every size, but there’s enough variety here that you should be able to find something good
Sun’s out, sale’s out at Felix Gray. Right now, the brand that made a name for itself with their blue-light blocking computer glasses is taking 15% off a selection of sunglasses, which—you guessed it—also block blue light in addition to harmful UVA/UVBs. Eligible styles are marked on the site; just use promo code SUNSOUT to ensure you’re seeing that discount in your cart.
Summer is here, so get outside! But first, stock up on tons of apparel and gear from Eddie Bauer. Right now, the brand’s entire clearance section is an extra 60% off with promo code EBEXTRA60. Plenty of shirts, shorts, hats, shoes, and much more are up for grabs, and if you spend $49 or more, you’ll automatically get free shipping. Guaranteed, you’ll find anything you might need to enjoy the nice weather in style.
Nothing leaves me feeling more zen than finding a good deal, and right now, a slew of apparel from Alo Yoga is on sale at HauteLook. Nama-save big on sports bras, tanks, leggings, and more that will have you looking stylish when you hit the mat. Just be sure to flow through this stock soon; this sale is just two days long, and the best stuff will likely sell out.
We might be approaching the last few weeks of summer, but that doesn’t mean you won’t still need shorts and button downs. You don’t have to pay full price on these summer essentials, though. Right now, you can stock up on shorts for between $12 and $27, during the Summer Short Sale, when you use the promo code SMSHORT. You can get long-sleeve and short-sleeve button downs for between $17 and $25 during the Button Down Blowout when you use the promo code BDB.
The weather’s warming up for most of the country (for now), so there’s never been a better time to shop this Sperry sale for men and women at HauteLook. Sperry makes plenty of styles for summer, including sandals and famed the brand’s boat shoes, so you’ll look the part whether you’re on land are at sea.
I am not going to sit here and tell you that your pores are gross, but if you don’t exfoliate or use a face mask, well, your pores desperately need some TLC. Get yourself a jar of Majestic Pure Dead Sea Mud Mask for $3 off on Amazon right now. It uses Dead Sea mud (duh), which is a praised key-ingredient due to its high concentration of salts and minerals. This mask can be used for deep cleansing to reduce pore size, as well as making your skin more even and clear.
It is August and that (hopefully) means you have time to travel. If you’re not planning to lug around your entire makeup brush cleaning kit, why not grab some wipes you can easily store in your carry-on bag. You can get EcoTools Makeup Brush Cleansing Cloths for only $5 on Amazon. The cloths are made without parabens, phthalates, sulfates and are made from recycled aluminum and plastic.
Looking for a new outfit to wear to all your upcoming Labor Day Weekend events? You can stock up onT-shirts, polos, and chinos at Original Penguin. Right now through August 12, Original Penguin’s sale items are an extra 25% off, and you can get an extra 10% off your order using the promo code EXTRA10.
If you’re not afraid to show off your green thumb, the ultimate gardening flex is a legitimate backyard greenhouse. This 6' x 4' option is easy to set up without any special tools, but its aluminum frame and built-in gutter system are still sturdy enough to protect your plants in rough weather.
So if you’re ready to give your plants a new home, the whole kit is marked down to $300 at Walmart, with free shipping.
Egg-shaped kamado grills offer excellent heat retention and control for slow-and-low smoking, as well as grilling, and this Char-Broil Kamander has never been cheaper than it is right now.
Its double walled steel construction won’t hold heat quite as well as the ceramic walls of a Big Green Egg, but at $274, it’s a whole lot cheaper, has a swing-out secondary cooking rack for a total of 469 square inches of cooking surface, and even has a built-in side table.
Somehow, it’s August already, and that means fall is just around the corner. If you’re responsible for clearing leaves from your yard, this Sun Joe cordless blower makes it easier for just $80 (with promo code KJBLWR). That’s $20 less than it sells for on Amazon.
It’s a 100 mph wind gust at your beck and call, just don’t let the power go to your head.
If you’re looking to cut down on your single-use plastic waste, ditching plastic straws is the way to go. These straws cannot be recycled and can take 200 years to decompose in a dump. Some people don’t like paper straws since they can start to dissolve during use. Metal straws are a great alternative and are easy to clean. Right now, you can get YIHONG Set of 8 Stainless Steel Metal Straws for $5 when you clip the $2 coupon. This set has four straight straws and four tumbler straws, plus two cleaning brushes.
Anker’s EufyCam home security system was a Kickstarter sensation, raising over $3,000,000. And now, the new version is available to all, and the two-camera starter kit is on sale for $240 today after clipping the $40 coupon and using promo code EUFYCM88 at checkout to save an extra $20.
These 1080p cameras are water resistant, support two-way intercom, include an audible alarm if someone tries to steal them, and most importantly, they run for a full year on a single battery charge, so you can set them up and forget about them.
Like most of these security systems, you can pay a nominal fee ($2.99 per camera) for Anker’s cloud DVR service, but the base station also comes with a 16GB microSD card that can save your recordings locally as well. Either way, you’ll still be able to get motion alerts and check in live from your phone for free.
If you happen to own any silver jewelry, flatware, or anything else that could use a little polishing, Goddard’s silver polishing cloths are the easiest way to bring them back to their original luster, provided they aren’t too far gone.
Here’s what cleaning expert Jolie Kerr had to say about them on The Inventory:
Goddard’s Silver polishing cloths are great for shining small or not-very-tarnished silver items quickly, and without needing water or household gloves. To use them, you simply rub the silver item vigorously with the polishing cloth, which will lift tarnish, and then buff it to a shine with a soft cloth. Silver polishing cloths are the thing you’ll want to use to shine up items that can’t be rinsed in water, like silver picture frames with photos in them. The cloth is treated with an anti-tarnishing agent that not only removes tarnish but also leaves a coating behind that will slow the rate of future tarnishing.
Get a two pack of Goddard’s cloths for $12 today on Amazon, an all-time low, and a small price to pay for restoring your silver.
Apple only started allowing third parties to make USB-C to Lightning cables a few months ago, but Anker’s already brought the fast-charging technology to their best cable: the PowerLine+ II.
The cable combines the best stuff from all of Anker’s premium charging cables, including a nylon-braided wrap, metal connectors, a 30,000 bend lifespan, and even a lifetime warranty if it somehow does ever break. And since it’s USB-C, it allows you to charge your iPhone at the fastest possible speeds from any USB-C PD charger: from 0% to 50% in just 30 minutes.
The 6' version of the cable is already discounted from its usual $24 to $20 on Amazon (the 3' is still priced at $22, for context), and a $3 clippable coupon makes it even cheaper.
Compared to the 2380, the new one is slightly faster (36 ppm vs. 32), uses less electricity, and has NFC for direct printing from compatible Android phones. All the basics that have made Brother printers a hit are still there too, including duplex printing, AirPrint and Google Cloud Print support, relatively inexpensive and long lasting toner, and a complete lack of the carriage jams and destroyed paper you’ve come to expect from inkjet printers.
If you aren’t satisfied with your current printer (which is a pretty safe bet if it’s not a Brother), this is a great buy at $100.
If you own a Nintendo Switch or USB-C-powered laptop, a USB-C Power Delivery battery pack is a must. Anker has several models these days to choose from (including a small one that’s currently on sale), but none as unique as the PowerCore+ 19000 PD Hybrid.
First, the basics. It’s 19,000mAh, includes two PowerIQ USB charging ports, and a 27W USB-C port that can charge a 12" MacBook at nearly full speed, or a MacBook Pro a bit slower. And unlike most of Anker’s competitors’ batteries, it also includes a 30W USB-C PD wall charger in the box that can recharge the battery in 3.5 hours, and double as an extra wall charger for your other gadgets.
That’s all well and good, but the PowerCore+ 19000 PD Hybrid has one more trick up its sleeve, one we haven’t seen on any other battery pack: It doubles as a USB data transfer hub. Just switch it into hub mode, and those USB-A charging ports become data ports that can transfer data between your PC and any connected USB hard drives and flash drives. That makes it the most comically large USB-C dongle in the world, but even so, that’s a handy skill, and means you’ll have one less thing to pack when you travel.
To get the deal, you’ll need to clip the $50 coupon to bring it down to $70, a match for the best price ever.
The key advantage of Ecobee’s smart thermostats has always been their ability to coordinate with wireless sensors to get a fuller picture of the temperature throughout your home, not just in the room that houses the thermostat itself.
This is especially helpful in houses with major temperature variations between levels. For example, if you have a bedroom in a finished attic, or a living area in a basement.
If you already have an Ecobee set up (and I know a lot of you do), then you can pick up an extra pair of sensors for just $59 on Amazon today, down from the usual $79.

Today’s price is a rare discount, and a few bucks less than the usual $20.

If you want to do any electrical work around your house, you need to have a multimeter in your toolbox. This one’s only $9 today on Amazon, and boasts a 4.5 star rating from over 2,000 reviews. At that price, there’s no reason not to add it to your tool box. Hell, you should celebrate by adding some USB ports to your power receptacles, if you ask me.
Just please, be careful.
Are Cosmic Brownies the best brownies you can eat? Hell yeah. I mean, that is what you used to think when you looked in your lunch box and saw a pack when you were in the 2nd grade. If your parents only bought you snacks from Little Debbie, you know why these were a vital part of grade-school lunch. Relive your childhood and get six boxes (36 total) of Cosmic Brownies for $12. Shout out to all of the kids who first ate all of the candy pieces before the actual brownie.
Ecobee’s Switch+ is probably the smartest light switch in existence. It can control your lights via an ambient light sensor, a motion sensor, and (of course) a button, but it also has Alexa built in. Note that I didn’t say it works with Alexa, I mean it actually has a microphone and speaker inside, meaning it’s basically a wall-mounted Echo Dot.
If you have an Ecobee thermostat, it’ll also work as a remote temperature sensor, because why wouldn’t it? It almost always sells for $80 these days, but right now, it’s down to an all-time low $60 on Amazon.
If you’ve been looking for a way to make your backyard a little more colorful and interesting, look no further. You can get Honeywell LED Outdoor Color-Changing String Lights (24 feet) for only $30 on Amazon. To get that $20 off discount, you’ll just need to use the promo code DKQ2AZ8V at checkout. You can choose from six pre-set, color-changing functions: flash, strobe, pulse, dance, fade, and flicker. Depending on the party mood, you have your choice of 10 color options: red, green, blue, warm white, orange, yellow, light blue, pink, purple, and neon green.
There’s nothing sexy or exciting about this combo smoke and carbon monoxide detector from First Alert. It doesn’t have voice instructions, it doesn’t integrate with your smart home, and it doesn’t look as cool as a Nest Protect. But with over 2,000 reviews, it’s one of the top selling detectors for a reason, and if you don’t have enough in your home, this is the best price of the year.
I’m mostly posting it because I bought two of them for like $6 more each last week, and I’m a little salty about it.
Rubbermaid’s 12 quart food storage container is quite a bit larger than your typical kitchen container, but it’s great for storing things you want to keep a lot of like rice, or large items like fruits.
But what it’s perhaps most commonly used for is as a sous-vide cooking container. It can withstand temperatures up to 212 degrees, so it’s built for high water temperatures, and its large capacity means you’ll have room for plenty of steaks, veggies, or uh, Thanksgiving turkeys. You can even buy a third party hinged lid with a hole for your sous-vide circulator that will help retain heat.
Today’s price is within $1 of an all-time low, so spend your savings on food to cook (or store) in there.
Most USB-C Power Delivery battery packs we’ve seen so far have been designed to keep things like laptops charged on long flights. Anker’s newest, on the other hand, is built with portability in mind.
The new PowerCore 10000 PD is a 10,000mAh battery pack with an 18W USB-C Power Delivery port. That’s not as powerful as the standard 30W port, or the increasingly common 45W ports, but it’s fast enough to charge an iPhone from 0% to 50% in just 30 minutes with a compatible cable, and should be enough to at least keep your Nintendo Switch or a small laptop at the same charge level while you use it, even if it doesn’t actually charge them all that quickly.
For a limited time, you can add it to your bag (complete with a USB-C cable) for $30 with promo code ANKERPD335, down from the usual $46.
RAVPower, perhaps more than any other company, has been pushing the envelope on small, powerful USB-C chargers powered by next generation GaN components, rather than silicon.
Their latest and greatest is a 61W wall charger that’s only a fraction of the size of Apple’s 61W 13" MacBook Pro charger, and cheaper too. We’ve tried it over on The Inventory, and it really does charge things as quickly as Apple’s charger. Get it for $40 today with promo code KINJAPQC, and enjoy that extra space in your bag.
As Anker’s newest budget true wireless buds, there aren’t too many bells and whistles here, save for the ability for both earbuds to operate independently (many true wireless earbuds have one bud pair to the other, rather than both pairing to your phone), and Bluetooth 5.0, which ensures a rock solid connection from a longer distance.
The earbuds should play on for 3.5 hours on a charge, and the charging case includes 12 hours worth of battery life too for longer sessions. That’s not as much as some of Anker’s more expensive models, or higher-end options like Apple’s AirPods, but it’s honestly enough for most situations.
