Anker’s been making a big push into the audio world with its SoundCore spin-off brand this year, and four of its most popular products are deeply discounted in today’s Amazon Gold Box.
I imagine the most popular deal here will be the SoundCore Space noise-canceling over-ear headphones for $69 (nice), a $30 discount. These headphones can play music and block sound for 20 hours in wireless mode, or up to 50 if you plug in an AUX cable, and they’d make a great gift for anyone who spends time on planes or in a noisy open office.
For a more fitness-friendly set of headphones, check out the SoundCore Spirit X for $28. They pack in Bluetooth 5.0 for a stable connection, IPX7 water resistance so you don’t ruin them with your sweat (I’ve even gone for a swim in them), and most impressively of all, a 12 hour battery.
Rounding out the deal are a pair of Bluetooth speakers. The more traditional looking SoundCore Motion B with IP67 water resistance, and the unique SoundCore Flare+, which pumps out sound in 360 degrees, and includes its own beat-driven light show on the bottom. You can even pair two of them together to use as a stereo pair.
Skip the “Should AI Have Human Rights?” debate until next year and welcome a trinity of Google Assistant-powered servants into your home for just $130, and make the sadist and noted domestic terrorist, Kevin McCallister proud.
Simply add the Google Home Hub to your cart, and you’ll receive an automatic $20 discount and an additional pair of Google Home Mini’s. Whether you’re looking to invest in a smart home, or want to beef up your unpaid, digital workforce, this is a tremendous deal.
I have nothing but fond memories of the 90s, and I love everything about the styles from that era. (#sorrynotsorry) If you feel the same, the Impossible Project Polaroid 600 96 Cam Instant Camera, on sale for $152 at Nordstrom, deserves your attention.
Its totally fresh color scheme will remind you of the days when things were crunk or fly or jiggy rather than lit or turnt or on fleek, and as long as instant cameras refuse to die, you may as well have the raddest one on the block. Better yet, if you order before noon Friday, you can actually get it here in time for Christmas and give someone the most amazing gift ever.
Update: The campaign ends in just a few days, meaning this is your last chance to preorder the Capsule II for $399, or $200 less than MSRP. In our experiences with Anker’s crowdfunded projects, it takes a long time for them to offer a deal on the product through Amazon that’s as good as the Kickstarter price, if they ever do.
Anker’s soda can-sized Capsule portable projector was a crowdfunding hit last year, and it really did deliver on its promise. But there were a few obvious areas for improvement, and Anker tackled all of the big ones with the brand new Capsule II, now up for preorder on Kickstarter.
So what’s new?
1) Resolution: The original Capsule’s standard definition 480p has been bumped to 720p, so your videos should look a lot crisper. Easy win.
2) Brightness: The first Capsule’s 100 ANSI lumen bulb was fine in a dark room, but the Capsule II’s is twice as bright, which means you’ll be able to get a usable picture in more lighting conditions, and at larger screen sizes. I saw it firsthand in a fairly well-lit event space, and while not as bright as a TV screen or a full-sized projector, it was definitely bright enough to watch a movie.
3) Software: The original Capsule had a version of Android installed, but it was pretty janky, and didn’t have access to Google Play. This time around, the Capsule II ships with Android TV 9.0 onboard, with access to the vast Google Play app store, which means you won’t have to rely on your phone for casting content.
There are a few other minor differences of note, including the inclusion of USB-C Power Delivery for fast charging, an improved speaker, and autofocus. It is a bit bigger than the Capsule (which will remain on sale for the time being); Anker calls it “pint sized,” rather than soda can-sized, which was pretty cheeky of them. Whatever beverage you compare it to though, it’s still very small for a projector.
Kickstarter backers can preorder the Capsule II right now for $399. Anker’s touting a $599 MSRP for the Capsule II, and while there will surely be discounts after it comes out, Anker’s previous crowdfunding projects have, in hindsight, legitimately offered prices to backers that weren’t matched on Amazon for many months after release, if ever.
If you ever bought a Capsule I prior to this Kickstarter going live, you’re also eligible for a $100 rebate when you preorder the Capsule II. Check out the bottom of the campaign page for details.
If you got yourself a new TV on Black Friday (or even more recently), it’s cheaper than you might think to mount it to your wall. This highly rated Perlesmith mount can support TVs up to 55", and it’s only $28 today with promo code EYB52OV7, complete with bonus accessories like a level, cord ties, and an HDMI cable.
If you ever want to watch TV, and loud movies in particular, without disturbing your neighbors, your kids, or your sleeping partner two feet away from you, you want a pair of RF headphones. Yes, not Bluetooth...RF.
Sennheiser makes some of the most popular and best-reviewed models out there, and their entry level RS 165s are on sale for $149 today on Amazon, the best price of the year. These don’t support virtual surround sound like the 175s, but they’ll still sound terrific, and once you get them set up, they’ll be perfectly synced up with the video on your TV, with none of the lag you can get with Bluetooth.
Needless to say, if your partner’s video games and explosion-y action movies keep you awake at night, this would be an amazing (if slightly passive aggressive) gift.
Let’s face the facts; you don’t need the iPad Pro. The standard 2018 iPad is a terrific tablet for both consuming and creating media. (And it works with the Apple Pencil, the first non-Pro model to do so.)
And right now you can get the 32GB model for $229, $20 less than the lowest prices we saw (on and off) around Black Friday.
Once you get your first Qi-charging phone, you quickly come to realize that you can never own enough charging pads. This one from Aukey doesn’t have higher-wattage charging speeds like some others we’ve seen, but it looks perfectly nice, and it’s only $7 with promo code XMASAK06, which is about as cheap as we ever see these things.
Elevation Lab makes some of the best iPhone docks money can buy, and you’ll need a whole lot less money than usual to buy them with our exclusive discounts. Even if you don’t need one yourself, they’d make great gifts for any iPhone owner. These deals aren’t quite as good as Black Friday’s, but they’re close.
The $40 (with promo code KINJADOCK4) ElevationDock 4 incorporates a pair of fine adjustment knobs to get a perfect fit, no matter what model iPhone or what case you happen to be using at the time.
The smaller CordDock won’t hold your phone quite as steady, but it lets you effortlessly take the phone off the dock while keeping the charging cord attached, which is perfect for nightstand use. Get it for $27 with promo code KINJACDOCK.
USB-C is taking over the world, so if you’re getting a new Switch, laptop, or other USB-C-powered device for the holidays this year, Anker’s got you covered with all the charging accessories you need.
For the chargers, just be sure to note the wattage of the USB-C port. 30W should be plenty for most laptops (if a bit slower than MacBook Pro owners might be used to), and 18W should be okay for things like iPads, phones, and even the Switch in handheld mode.
Compared to its predecessor, the newest Amazon Echo Dot looks nicer, sounds better, and today at least, is even cheaper. This $20 deal from Daily Steals (via Facebook) is actually less than Amazon was selling these for on Black Friday, and you even get free shipping.
Anker’s reader-favorite PowerLine charging cables have blossomed into an entire line of different products, and it hasn’t always been clear which one was the best:
- PowerLine - The original. Rubber-wrapped, and kevlar-reinforced.
- PowerLine+ - The same, but wrapped in Nylon for added durability, less tangling, and a better feel.
- PowerLine II - A more durable version of the original, and backed by a lifetime warranty, but without the benefits of nylon wrapping.
That confusion can now become a thing of the past, because Anker combined the best of all of its cables into the new PowerLine+ II, and you can save on the 3' (promo code CABLE8462) or 6' (CABLE8463) USB-A to USB-C version today. It’s incredibly durable, it’s wrapped in nylon, and it comes with a lifetime warranty, meaning it’s probably the last cable you’ll ever have to buy.
Those codes work on both red and black, but just be sure you’re using the right code for the right length. And remember, USB-A to USB-C cables don’t support USB-C Power Delivery charging speeds like C-to-C cables, but they do allow you to charge your USB-C gadgets from any standard, ubiquitous USB charger.
Anker’s most impressive entry in the true wireless headphone market is on sale for the lowest price we’ve ever seen, by a longshot.
- 3.5 hour battery, plus a charging case with enough power for 48 hours of playback.
- Transparency mode that lets in some ambient noise.
- Customizable EQ settings.
- Bluetooth 5.0 for a stable connection.
Normally priced at $150, promo code ZWSDZ2010 will bring them down to $75 right now, just in time for the holidays. That’s less than they were selling for on Kickstarter, way back when.
For $15 less (with promo code ZWSDZ2000), you can also get the standard Zolo Liberties, which only carry 24 hours of charge in their case, rather than 48. They also lack transparency mode and customizable EQ settings, so it’s probably worth spending just a little more for the top-end model.
TCL’s affordable 6-series TVs are famous for offering every form of HDR (including top-shelf Dolby Vision), local dimming zones for better contrast and black levels, and even excellent Roku software, and the 55" model just dropped to a new all-time low price of $550. That’s about $100 less than usual, and even $80 cheaper than we saw on Black Friday, and any way you slice it, it’s an incredible value for that set of features.
Want to upsize to the 65"? It’s also on sale for $930, though that’s only about a $20 discount, and we’ve seen it go as low as $900, albeit very briefly.
$10 is about what you’d expect to pay for a 4-port USB charging hub, but this Aukey model also comes with two AC outlets, so your lamps and laptops don’t have to go hungry.
The Anker PowerCore Fusion is one of our biggest sellers ever, because it combines a USB wall charger and a portable battery pack into a single product. Now, RAVPower has their own alternative with a slightly larger 6700mAh battery inside, and you can grab it for just $22 with promo code KINJAQFF.
They sent me one to check out, and despite the larger battery inside, it’s barely bigger or heavier than the Anker, and would make a great holiday stocking stuffer.
Samsung’s U3-rated microSD cards are some of the fastest and most popular options out there—I have the 128GB model in my own Nintendo Switch—and all four sizes are down to all-time low prices today on Amazon.
If you need extra space for your action cam, smartphone, tablet, Switch, or anything else, these are extremely fast cards, and extremely good deals.
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.
Bosch’s 12V power tools consistently punch above their weight, and you can grab a 2-speed pocket driver with two batteries for just $70 today, or $30 less than usual.
Unlike most cordless drills that hang a bulbous battery pack off the bottom of the handle, Bosch’s 12V tools use a slimline design where the battery fits entirely within the handle, making the drill far more maneuverable in tight spaces.
Ninja makes our readers’ favorite affordable blender, and today, you can save on a step-up model, with all the accessories you need to make a pitcher of your favorite drink, or a single serve smoothie to go.
The BL642 features Ninja’s Auto-iQ base, which combines pulsing, blending, and pausing to make the ideal texture for whatever it is you’re blending. The set includes a 72 ounce pitcher, plus three different sizes of single serve blending glasses that let you blend in and drink from the same vessel, which means fewer dirty dishes.
This thing usually sells in the $150-$200 range, and $100 is an all-time low by almost $30. It’s only available today though, so grab the deal before it gets pulverized.
String up these trendy Edison bulb string lights in your backyard and make Pinterest proud. This 49-foot strand is completely weatherproof, so you can leave them up year-round. Although not the best price we’ve seen on these, they normally sell for $50, but today you can light your space with them for $36 with promo code 3FK8HUTY.
As it turns out, chugging wine directly from the bottle is not the correct way to enjoy it. Huh! Resist the temptation to just stick a straw in your next wine bottle (which, I know, can be especially difficult during the holiday season) and attempt to be ~classy~ by investing in a discounted wine aerator from Waerator in today’s Gold Box. With just the touch of a button, these gadgets will improve the flavor of your wine, while also taking the hassle of our pouring it into a glass via a handy spout.
And, while you’re at it, might as well pick up an automatic rechargeable electric wine opener for $27 (which is useful for chuggers, just saying). Chances are, you’ll need it at some point over the next few weeks.
Is there a better gift than a big-ass box of meat? I’m struggling to think of one. Butcher Box sells $135 e-gift cards that can be redeemed for the special holiday gift box of your giftee’s choice, and our readers can buy a card for just $120 right now with promo code KINJA.
You can check out the gift box options here, to get an idea of what your lucky giftee will be feasting on in January. You’re going to want to invite yourself over for dinner.
What would it take to perk you up on this dreary winter morning? How about the best price ever for the Keurig K475 Single Serve K-Cup Pod Coffee Maker? Regularly $140 or more, today it’s just $70, and it has several nice features like a 70-oz. reservoir (so you can brew a week’s worth of morning joe before refilling it) and the ability to brew a carafe... because that’s not moving backwards at all?
On sale for the same price is the Keurig K-Select Single Serve K-Cup Maker with a starter set of Krispy Kreme, Newman’s Own, or Green Mountain pods. These bundles normally hover between $90 and $140, and while the machine itself isn’t quite as fancy, you probably don’t need it to be (and the included coffee makes up for it).
Only you know your coffee habits and which option is best for you, but really you can’t go wrong either way.
I’m hardly a kitchen expert, but I know a few things about cooking. I know you need pans to do it, and that this Cuisinart MultiClad Pro Stainless Steel 2-Quart Saucepan with Cover is a good one to have. (I also know that it’s just $28 when you clip the coupon on the page.)
I know that stainless steel cookware is a smart choice because it stays true to itself and doesn’t let food or heat change it. I know that triple-ply construction with an aluminum core is one method for ensuring even heat distribution. And I know that this pan checks all those boxes and more. What I don’t know is why you haven’t already bought it.
I feel like even Mitch Hedberg would be disappointed with the name “food processor.” It’s accurate and descriptive, but it’s also vague — to “process” food could mean anything. “Food dicer/shredder/chopper/grinder/mixer/kneader” is a bit much, though, so I guess “processor” it is.
The Cuisinart 14-Cup Food Processor is a lovely example of this multitasking species, to the point that I’m not sure if I like the copper or red finish better. It’s also on sale for $116 for today only, which, considering the number of functions it can perform, is a pretty unbeatable deal.
Nice, simple drinkware is something you need to own if you share a hobby with every person to ever appear on HGTV — entertaining. It goes with any theme, any decor, any level of formality.
This Luigi Bormioli Top Class 12-oz Drinking Glass 6-Pack, made of break-resistant, lead-free crystal you can put in the dishwasher, is also pretty low maintenance, as far as glassware goes. And it’s chic! Look at that subtle laser-cut rim, the tasteful thickness of it...
Spring and summer will be here before you know it. Is your deck/patio/yard ready? If not, Amazon has a handful of Suncast products on sale today, and all are designed to optimize your outdoors experience. Whether you need a rolling cooler, a storage cabinet, a prep station, or just some way to make your trash look nicer, you’ll find it here. But don’t wait around — the deals end today.
I used to chop garlic by hand, and I think deep down, I was hoping I’d cut my finger off just so I’d have an excuse to stop. That all changed when I bought a garlic press, which minces (really, purees) a clove in a matter of seconds, no peeling required. This press from Greenco is down to $4 today on Amazon. It’s an add-on item, so I suggest buying lots of them to give away as stocking stuffers.
Just note that pressed garlic is much more intense than chopped or minced garlic, so you may want to use one or two fewer cloves in some recipes.
Amazon’s #1 selling cat scratching post has a 4.6 star review average from over 7,000 customers, and is down to just $36 today, the best price we’ve seen all year. But don’t listen to me; my wife is a veterinarian, and this is the post she recommends.
*Unfortunately, it still probably won’t make your cat love you.
What’s better than earning stars with your Starbucks order? Earning Amazon credit, obviously (though you’ll still earn stars too, fear not). While supplies last, you can use promo code SBUX (or “Elsbucks,” as the baristas would write on that code’s cup) to get $5 in Amazon credit when you spend $25 on a digital Starbucks gift card.
You were going to spend that $25 at Starbucks anyway, or at the very least, you can give the gift card as a gift, and keep the credit for yourself (we won’t tell). This deal won’t even last as long as holiday cup season though, so gulp it down while you can.
Instant Pots are the kitchen appliance of 2018. There are no official guidelines for how this was decided, it’s just obvious. They’re everywhere, and everybody is talking about them.
But! Did you know that in addition to the pressure/slow cooker, Instant Pot also makes a blender? The Instant Pot Ace 60 Cooking Blender can heat and puree at the same time, and I’d expect nothing less from the company that owns the category.
You can also use it to make cold dishes, of course, because who would want a blender that couldn’t make smoothies and shakes? The soupmaking functionality is the main selling point, though — that and the fact that it’s actually on sale, which is as rare as a person who’s never heard of Instant Pot.
The Claw claims to be the world’s smallest multitool, and there’s really no reason to doubt it. Roughly the same length as a penny, the little piece of titanium can open bottles and paint cans, turn screws, wedge open key rings, remove staples, and most critically of all, open up boxes that you ordered from Kinja Deals. Get it for $15 today (down from $22) with our exclusive promo code KINJADEALS.
As a person who has sent in many, many rounds of cupcakes and other classroom treats for birthdays and holidays, I know I’ve spent a small fortune on cupcake liners. I can’t argue the fact that they’re wasteful and frivolous, but they also look festive and save me cleanup time.
What I should do — and you too, if you bake at all — is invest in some of these AmazonBasics Reusable Silicone Baking Cups, currently at an all-time price low. (The 24-pack is technically a better deal, but if you absolutely want no more than 12, that set has never been cheaper either.)
The downside: They’re add-on items. The upside: You could order enough to hit the $25 minimum and literally never have to think about buying baking cups again.
How much would you pay for superpowers? Does $20 seem fair? Because that’s what it’ll cost you (via code KINJACRANE) to procure the Power Crane Single Person Furniture Moving Kit, which grants you the ability to raise and move up to 330 lbs. without help. It includes a jack, risers, dollies, and the satisfaction of saying “I told you so” to anybody who claims it’s impossible for one human to rearrange furniture alone.
For some, a humidifier in winter isn’t an option — it’s a necessity. (I swear, every night I forget to turn mine on, I wake up with a scarily dry throat and parched skin.) At $34 with promo code KINJAY77, this TaoTronics Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier is an affordable, yet reliable option for adding some moisture to your air.
It’s ultra quiet and has a very helpful Sleep Mode option for the display, so it won’t disturb your sleep while it does its job. Plus, it’s not mammoth in size, but just big enough to last through the night, and through the day, too, if you’ve got a full tank. Get one — or several — for your home and/or office and finally breathe a big sigh of relief.
All-inclusive resorts aren’t going to cross anything new off your bucket list, put you in unfamiliar situations, or really challenge you in any way. These are all important aspects of traveling, but not every vacation has to be an adventure. Sometimes, a trip where you pay one price to be pampered with a beach, a nice room, and all the food and booze you can fit in your stomach is exactly what the doctor ordered.
For a limited time, Vacation Express is offering a variety of all inclusive Jamaica packages starting at $499, including your hotel and roundtrip air. Prices vary by departure city, the length of your trip, and your hotel of choice, but they’re generally less than you’d pay building the trip a la carte, and you don’t have to worry about any of the details.
If the image you’ve been hoping to craft for yourself is “I totally have my life together, and also I’m really good at parties,” a proper bar cart is one of your household must-haves. This Better Homes & Gardens Fitzgerald 2-Tier Serving Cart has all the style you seek, and today it’s just $64.
Even if you’re not able to have it flawlessly stocked in time for your next shindig, just the fact that you’re started the process will be worth something. All decent acts of curation take time, and you can always fill the empty space with pretty knick knacks or drink accessories in the interim.
There are many, many things wrong with the behavior depicted in Mad Men, and I don’t have the energy to begin to get into all of it. Even the way the execs’ offices are set up with bar carts could look at lot more like functional alcoholism than professional hospitality from many angles, but let’s take the charitable view here. Always being able to offer visitors a drink is courteous, and a nice decanter set looks good in almost any environment.
This Godinger Globe Whiskey Decanter Set drops to just $42 via code 6GEHT6Y3, so today might be the day that you lean a little towards the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce way of doing things. (But just a little, and only the good parts.) It has fancy etching and a ship inside the bottle, so it’ll look like you paid a lot more than you did. I’m not saying lie about the cost, but letting people believe what they wanted got Don Draper pretty far in life.
Once you’ve gotten used to keeping a multi-tool on you, it can be hard to go without. But the TSA doesn’t care about that, and good luck getting your Leatherman on a plane.
The Gerber Shard isn’t as fancy as a lot of mini tool gizmos, but it’s airline approved and it fits on your keychain — and it’s $5. It features three drivers, a wire stripper, a pry bar, and a bottle opener, so maybe it’s just enough to keep you from having handy gadget withdrawals in “no weapons” situations. (It’s also a nice little gift for people that don’t really need or want anything else.)
Firstleaf is an online wine club that learns your preferences, offers tons of options, and most importantly, saves you money compared to buying from the store. It’s a solid deal any time, but it’s even better for our readers from now through the holidays.
Every new Firstleaf member gets an introductory delivery with three bottles of wine for just $15, plus $5 shipping. Every box thereafter includes six bottles for $80, plus $10 shipping. If you use this link and promo code Kinja when you sign up though, you’ll get free shipping on every box for your entire first year. That’ll save you over $100 if you get a new box every month.
You don’t need to be a celebrity like, say, Kate Moss or Mark Wahlberg or Brooke Shields or even the a Kardashian-Jenner to score some quality Calvin Klein underwear, apparel, or accessories. In fact, today you can get it for much, much cheaper than usual. Amazon is discounting men’s and women’s Calvin Klein styles via their Gold Box. And just so you know, the iconic brand is back in style in a big way, so trendy types probably wouldn’t even think it was that weird if you gave them Calvin Klein underwear as a gift this season. Maybe.
Team-branded apparel items are time-honored emergency gift ideas for procrastinators, so if there are any NFL fans left on your shopping list, check out today’s one-day sale on Amazon, featuring everything from beanies and socks to hoodies and tees, all showing off the team of your choice.
Just click into the product page, and you’ll see a dropdown to select the team.If your giftee’s team sucks like the Giants, the Packers, or <sniffle> the Falcons, that’s their problem, not yours!
If you have yet to use the extraordinarily shimmery, incredibly jiggly Farsáli Jelly Beam Illuminator, you are not only missing out on one of the beauty world’s favorite highlighters, but also a true ASMR-like experience. But don’t worry, there’s never been a better time than right now, to join this product’s cult following. Today, it’s just $20 — that’s half off its regular price — at Sephora in two colors: Rose Goals and Champagne Pink, both of which are So. Damn. Shiny.
This bouncy illuminator goes on like a gel, but sets like a super pigmented powder that’s not going anywhere. This deal, however, will not last quite as long, since this much beloved product is sure to sell out.
Well, this is an easy sale to get behind. Eddie Bauer is taking 50% off just about everything, and they’re doing it right as we’re hitting peak cold weather season. That’s impeccable timing considering they’re best known as the company that patented the first quilt down jacket. Shop men’s, women’s and even gear to stock up on everything you need for the winter, from base layers and flannels, to parkas and shells — it’s all* 50% off.
Note: Excludes sleeping bags, tents, and non Eddie Bauer-brand products.
If the daily stressors of life (or just the stress of the holidays) have you tossing and turning all night, give melatonin gummies a whirl. These OLLY Restful Sleep Gummy Supplements also contain L-Theanine and botanicals like chamomile and lemon balm to help calm you down and make you drowsy, and today, you can buy them with a $2, bringing the price down to just $10. No need to sleep on it; nab this deal now before it peacefully drifts off.
Chances are, at least one person on your list — or even just you — is resolving to get fit in the new year. But hey, there’s no time like the present to at least start prepping for the new year, new you. That’s why current and future athletes should check out Under Amour’s sale on all outlet styles. Take 25% off using promo code GIVE25 through December 21, though benefits of getting up and working out will last far beyond that date.
May your days, and also your face, be merry and bright this holiday season with the help of Pat McGrath Labs. The cult-favorite cosmetics brand is taking 25% sitewide with code VIP25, so stock up on highly pigmented, mesmerizingly shimmery products for lips, eyes, and skin and shine brighter than a Christmas tree light at your next holiday party.
We’ve been fans of the BioLite FirePit Outdoor Smokeless Fire Pit Grill since it first hit Kickstarter. It’s easy to transport, minimizes smoke, is see-through for maximum fire viewing, uses wood or charcoal, and doubles as a hibachi grill. (The secret is an advanced circulation system that’s powered by a removable battery pack, which you can plug your phone into, natch.)
If you’ve been wishing for one but couldn’t stand to pay full price, here’s some good news: You can get it for $170 via code GIZMODO15 at Amazon. I’d say this price is smoking hot, but the whole point of the FirePit is that it’s smokeless, so...
Clarks are a nice blend of comfort and style, but attempting to stock your entire closet with them could get a little expensive. Today, though, you can get two select pairs of men’s or women’s shoes for $99, which is one of the best deals you’ll see on Clarks. It includes boots, sandals, sneakers, and dress shoes, so you can shop for every occasion while enjoying major savings.
You don’t need to be an archaeologist to dig up a few great deals at Fossil right now. The watch, bag, and accessory purveyor is cutting last-minute holiday shoppers some slack by taking up to 40% off gifts, including hybrid smartwatches, plus 25% off all watches and bags. It’s a deal so rare and cool, it probably belongs in a museum.
It might be too late to take advantage of 30% off men’s and women’s sweaters at Urban Outfitters as a Christmas gift (unless you place an order of $100 or more by the 21st and qualify for the free rush shipping). But luckily for no one, it’s still going to be cold on December 26th! And you, or someone you know, will still probably be wearing sweaters. So, now’s still a good time to stockpile.
I have a weird relationship with massages. I really, really like them, but I also spend the entire massage feeling lowkey guilty about the experience. Like, I don’t have that kind of free time to burn just lying around, and also it seems weird to me to coerce people into pampering me, even when it’s literally their chosen profession. I still have an unused massage gift certificate from Mother’s Day 2017. IDK, man. I have some issues to work on.
But until I finish doing that, I’ve found that letting robots do the work in my own home is mostly okay, and Mynt is discounting a handful of massaging contraptions for people like me. For your standard tense neck and shoulders, there’s the Mynt Shiatsu Massager with Heat for $42 or the Mynt Shiatsu Massage Pillow with Heat for $33 via code USM23515.
If your pain points are all located in your feet, there’s also the Mynt Percussion Foot Massager for $140 via code USM27106 and the on-page coupon on page, or the Mynt Shiatsu Foot Massager for $150 via USM26116 and an on-page coupon.
No machine can truly replicate the spa experience, of course, but like I said, that’s not totally a bad thing. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go tend to my achey shoulders, because that’s what I do. Yeah. I need these.
TENS (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) massagers seem a bit like pseudoscience, but every time we post a deal on one of these things, we hear nothing but rave reviews. In fact, I use one occasionally after exercising, and it does seem to reduce muscle pain. At the very least, it feels cool.
Naipo has long made popular physical massage products, so an electrical alternative seems like a natural progression.
We’ve got a sale that will make you get out your wallet...and ditch it for something newer and cuter. The pocketbook purveyors at Kate Spade want to hook you up with new handbags, wallets, clothing, jewelry and other accessories this holiday season, so they’re taking an extra 40% off already marked down sale items. Use promo code MOREEXTRA to take advantage of this designer deal. And, just saying, handbags and accessories make great gifts, and if you order by tonight, you can get your items by Christmas Eve, plus free shipping.
Cole Haan makes some seriously great shoes for any occasion, and if you’re looking for a new pair but don’t want to spend the normal asking price, they’re taking an extra 30% off their sale section with the code SAVE. We expect that this will be their last big sale before Christmas.
Run — don’t walk — to take advantage of this Adidas Flash Event at Nordstrom Rack before the holiday shipping deadlines hit. Right now, everything from new kicks, gloves and backpacks to apparel for men, women, and kids are on sale, so you’ll definitely find the last few things you need take you over the finish line when it comes to your gift list.
You know why your procrastinate with your shopping year after year? Because you keep being rewarded for your behavior, so why would you do anything differently? This time it’s Bonobos reinforcing your decisions with 30% off sitewide via LOVEMYSELF and free shipping in time for Christmas. But you can’t put off using it — it’s only good through Wednesday. Maybe you’ll learn yet.
As a deal enthusiast, I basically live in the clearance section of all retailers. So when J.Crew Factory decides to take an extra 60% off clearance items via code YAYCLEARANCE, I get pretty excited. (Most of the other items are also marked 50% to 60% off, but I like my savings stacked.)
There are several pieces for under $10, and J.Crew Rewards members get free shipping. (It costs nothing to join.) Will you get your order in time for Christmas? Almost definitely not, but luckily, clothes are something you need year-round.
REI is making the holidays even happier with a festive sale that is positively jolly. Starting today and continuing through December 24, the outdoor retailer is taking up to 40% off select clearance items (that’s the same as their Cyber Monday sale, by the way).
Outdoor adventurers can seek deals on women’s and men’s apparel, along with a range of gear for camping, hiking, and all things snow. And you can bet a few of your favorite brands, like Columbia, The North Face, and Patagonia, will be marked down, too. Take advantage of this sale now, and let the knowledge that you saved a bundle give you a warm feeling inside when you head outside in your new gear this winter.
A new season calls for a wardrobe update. Now that we’re hurdling into winter, LOFT wants to give you your pick of their new arrivals, and take 50% off your purchase to boot. All your wear-to-work essentials are up for grabs, including sweaters, blouses, and pants, plus a slew of accessories and jewelry. Just use promo code HOLIDAY and outfit yourself in a bunch of new stuff, now.
Whether you wear TOMS for the ease of never having to tie your shoes, or just dig the style, this is one deal you should take advantage of. You can save an extra 30% on select best-selling styles with promo code GIFTS. Dozens of styles for men, women, and kids are included, so you should have no trouble finding a new pair to love.
I recently waxed poetic about my love for the Dagne Dover Landon Carryall, and — whaddya know? — it’s now 20% off. Just use promo code TRAVEL20 to get one (or four, one in each size) and experience the freewheeling delight that a many-pocketed, neoprene-nylon bag can bring forth.
Also 20% off (with the same promo code) are a bunch of other Dagne Dover items that are ideal for travel, including totes, wallets, backpacks, pouches, and even a fanny pack. All of these bags would make packing up and getting out of town for the holidays that much easier, not to mention, they’d be nice gifts for a frequent traveler on your list.
While most eye masks try to provide as little compression as possible, IMAK’s compression pain relief mask lightly presses around your eyes by design to help with headaches, migraines, and sinus pain. You can even throw it in the freezer for cooling (but not too cooling) relief when you go to bed.
$9 is the best price Amazon’s listed all year, and it makes a great stocking stuffer for light sleepers and headache sufferers.
If you’re having trouble sleeping, suffering from anxiety, or having trouble sleeping because you’re suffering from anxiety, Sunday Scaries CBD gummies could help. Jolie Kerr shared her thoughts on them for The Inventory, and now, our readers can save 15% for the always-stressful holiday season with promo code kinja15.
That applies to the regular gummies, the vegan versions, and the pure CBD tincture, with extra savings available if you buy in bulk, so your wallet can rest as easy as you will.
Patent prints are all the rage, but you can put an extra geeky spin on your decor with these sci-fi themed ones. Blueprints of BB-8 and the Starship Enterprise, profiles of the Harry Potter wands, a flat lay of Link’s weapons from The Legend of Zelda. You’ll find all of those and more in this MassDrop sale, and they’re all just $13 for an 18"x24" print.
If you have a 4K Blu-ray player, the remastered Harry Potter films are pure visual magic. Amazon’s waved its discount wand and marked down the complete eight-film set in 4K to $101 today (after clipping the 5% coupon).
That’s not as cheap as the ~$80 deals we saw on Prime Day and Black Friday, but it’s still a significant discount from the usual $140-$155, and it would make a great gift, if only to see Daniel Radcliffe before he grew up to star in the Deadspin Awards.
Today’s Amazon toy sale is cutting it close for Christmas delivery, but anything that ships via Prime should be here in time. There are a bunch of great deals on board games, Marvel, Disney, Star Wars, My Little Pony, NERF, Play-Doh... basically every kind of toy a kid could possibly want. Please, if you haven’t already, finish your shopping today.
Some kids are just born entrepreneurs. I have one who loves anything to do with money, business, and selling, so I’m wondering if I should pick up this Osmo Pizza Co. Game to give us all a break from Monopoly and lemonade stand planning.
It comes with the Osmo iPhone Base, which allows kids to monitor real-time customer satisfaction levels and checks their work as far as order accuracy and giving correct change. (You can also buy it without the base if you already have one, but you do need it for the game to work as intended.)
Maybe it’ll give your children just the experience they need to become actual titans of industry. At worst, it’ll just give them something fun to do that sneakily reinforces their math skills.
Both the Wowwee Bot Squad Joe Plow Robot, $11, and the Wowwee Elmoji Junior Coding Robot, $8, are crazy good deals right now. I’m not trying to, like, peer pressure you into buying them, but I wanted you to know that they’re available at amazing all-time price lows.
Catan is often the first stop for board game players after they graduate from the Monopolies of the world, which is probably why it ranked so highly in our best board game Co-Op. While begging for bricks can get tedious after awhile, it’s still one of those games that’s easy enough for newbies to grasp quickly, which makes it great for holiday get-togethers.
If it’s still not in your board game cabinet, Walmart will sell it to you for $44 today, the same price as Amazon, but with a $20 gift card thrown in as an incentive. I’ll give you three sheep for the gift card!
Has family game night felt a bit tame to you lately? Well, there’s nothing like a dose of fear to get players’ adrenaline pumping, so consider bringing home Betrayal At House On The Hill, a chill-inducing board game for three to six players ages 12 and up. Even though it won’t ship until after Christmas, $27 is a scary good deal that you should take advantage of before it mysteriously disappears.
The game features enough scenarios to explore a new haunt with each round, but beware: as the title suggests, the whole point of this game is to turn players against each other, which actually might be a refreshing, nightmare-fueled change from your average family game night disputes.
If you missed out on all the Black Friday Switch deals, there’s still time to (sort of) save right now. Amazon’s tossing in a $25 Amazon.com gift card when you buy the console today, which’ll get you nearly halfway to the mandatory copy of Smash. Or the mandatory copy of Breath of the Wild. Or Mario Odyssey. Or Mario Kart. There are so many great Switch games, you guys!
Note: If one color sells out, try the other one.
There’s still time to gift (or just buy for yourself) one of Arcade1Up’s terrific looking 3/4 sized arcade cabinets, and now, they’re all down to just $199, or $100 less than their launch price.
Most of the cabinets include multiple games (generally from the same genre), so let us know which one you would pick in the comments. For me, it’s the Pac-Man cabinet, just for the paint job.
It might be worth spending some of your savings on a $40 riser, which brings the cabinet up to a more ergonomic height.
Magformers are crazy cool. I’m drawn to them sheerly because of the bright colors, but they’re also neat for busy fidgeting (come on, they’re magnetic shapes), building imagined objects, and generally flexing those STEM muscles.
Amazon has a bunch on sale today, from basic sets to add-on accessories to deluxe kits with lights and remote controlled components. Whether you’re looking for a last-minute Christmas gift or just an activity to squirrel away for a rainy day, there are Magformers to fit the bill.
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, $56 is below the price we were seeing on Black Friday. It’s not a huge discount, but we rarely see it drop below $64.
Let’s do some quick math. Those weird animal ride-ons at the mall cost $20 per hour, so 15 rides would equal $300. If you believe your child could or would spend that much time on a giant motorized rolling creature, the smart financial decision might be to buy a Kid Trax 12-Volt Rideamals Scout Pony Interactive Ride-On for $298 and keep it at home for endless use.
Scout has functions the mall animals don’t — it reacts to being brushed and “fed,” and can even dance. With a library of sounds, movements, and music, it also feels friendlier than its counterparts in retail captivity. Somewhere in there is a message about the delicate balance between man and nature, wrapped in the scratchy blanket of capitalism.
If you missed out on the $199 Xbox One S bundles on Black Friday, Walmart just put a bunch of them back on sale. They all include a 1TB hard drive and a bundled game, so you’ll have everything you need to get started on Christmas morning. Well, nearly everything.
Depending on your family’s sense of humor, Cards Against Humanity is either the best game to play over the holidays, or the worst, but you’ll never know until you try and Grandma doesn’t speak to you for three days.
The game almost never goes on sale, but Walmart is currently tossing in a free $10 e-gift card when you order the starter set for its usual $25. You can spend that $10 on an expansion pack, or anything else Walmart sells.
One of the most fun memories my family has made in recent years was a giant NERF battle on the lawn. I’m talking children, my adult siblings and their spouses, my parents — all of us pummeling each other with foam darts and then pausing to collect them so we could go again.
I kind of think I want to make it a holiday tradition, and you can, too, if you stock up on gear during Amazon’s NERF sale. Dart refills start at $4, and there are blasters from $6 (but you’ll probably want one of the bigger ones if you’re going to stand a chance in the war). It’ll give you a whole new perspective on what an “old-fashioned family Christmas” can be.
Board games are always a solid choice for holiday break entertainment. Even the most screen-addicted will need a break from the laptop/phone/TV eventually, and games are pretty excellent as far as encouraging human interaction and making memories.
Walmart has a bunch on sale today, and they range from timeless classics like Monopoly to chaotic kid faves like Pie Face Cannon. Relatively highbrow options like Trivial Pursuit are even in the mix. You’ll be happy you have them on hand once the dreary post-Christmas winter starts to drag on, and on, and on...
Even at its usual $12 per month, Humble Monthly is an amazing deal for PC gamers, but for a limited time, you can pre-pay for a whole year for $99. That deal is valid whether you’re an existing subscriber or a new one, so what are you waiting for?
This month’s early access games are Just Cause 3 XXL, Wizard of Legend, and Project Cars 2, and as always, more mystery games will unlock at the end of the month. Every game you get is yours to keep forever, whether you remain a subscriber or not.
When you’re too young to drive a car, zooming around on an electric toy of some kind is as rad as it gets. Actually, normal scooters are pretty fun, too.
