If you’ve been waiting on a good deal to upgrade your home network to 802.11ac, this might push you over the edge. Amazon’s tossing in a free 1TB external drive when you purchase a highly-rated NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1900 router for $178. That’s not an all-time low price on the router, but it’s on the low end of its usual range, and the hard drive makes it the best deal we’ve seen. [NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band Wi-FI Gigabit Router (R7000) + Toshiba Canvio Basics 1TB Portable Hard Drive, $178]

Pro tip: Plug the hard drive into one of the router’s USB ports, and you’ll instantly have some free network attached storage.

I was a longtime user of the iOttie One Touch dash mount, which you voted as your favorite over on Kinja Co-Op, but I recently experimented with a magnetic alternative, and I have to say, I love the thing.

Unlike traditional suction cup-based mounts, this Mpow Grip ($6 today with code KLQBNAWU) won’t obscure your view of the road, and when your phone is mounted to it, it’s in fact completely invisible. A big worry about these things is that they’ll cover up a valuable vent during the hottest and coldest times of the year, but I’ve found that you can stick the mount on the very top of the vent, and the magnetic plate against the very bottom of you phone, and only block a small fraction of your airflow.

The big caveat is that you’ll probably only want to buy this if use a phone case, since your two mounting options are either placing a magnetic plate between the phone and the case, or attaching a non-removable magnetic sticker directly to the phone. As long as that’s not an issue though, this is certainly worth a try at $6. [Mpow Grip Smartphone Car Mount, $6 with code KLQBNAWU]

It’s not quite as exciting as yesterday’s WD My Book price mistake, but a 4TB Samsung hard drive for $100 is still a hell of a deal. [Samsung D3 Station 4TB External Drive, $100]

You’ve got two choices when it comes to checking on the progress of your dinner in the oven. You could poke at it with a kitchen thermometer until you think it’s done, or you could sit on the couch and wait for your phone to tell you when it’s ready.

The highly-rated iDevices Kitchen Thermometer uses two temperature probes to track whatever you have in the oven or on the grill, and connects to your iPhone or Android device over Bluetooth to alert you as soon as it reaches the proper temperature. I actually gave this to my dad for his birthday last year, and it worked as advertised.

Amazon has marked the thermometer down to just $52 today, which is an all-time low price. If you love gadgets, and you love cooking, I wouldn’t hesitate. [Amazon]

The new Game of Thrones Collector’s Edition Monopoly only went on sale on Amazon a few weeks ago, but it’s already gotten a nearly 25% discount off its $60 initial price. I call playing as the White Walker. [Game of Thrones Monopoly, $46]

I don’t know about you, but it’s 91 degrees outside my house right now, and ice cream sounds amazing. If you like the idea of making your own, Cuisinart’s ICE-70 ice cream maker does all the hard work for you, and can churn out 2 quarts of ice cream, frozen yogurt, or sorbet in just 20 minutes.

Amazon has it listed for $120 right now, which would be an all-time low as it is, but a $20 coupon on the page brings it all the way down to $100. Just be sure to pace yourself, and don’t get brain freeze. [Cuisinart ICE-70 Ice Cream Maker, $100 after $20 coupon]

Outfit your desk, nightstand, and backpack with these 6-port USB chargers, and you’ll never need to worry about your batteries hitting zero. [Mopower 50 Watt 6 Ports USB Charger, $17 with code 2NPPAKQY]

It’s officially summer, but before you head out to the beach or the pool, you’ll want to make sure your phone is safe. This highly-rated IPX8-certified dry bag will fit phones with up to 5.3” screens and will give you full access to the device (including the camera!) at depths of up to 100’. Plus, when you’re out of the water, it’ll prevent sand from ruining your screen, which is worth the price tag by itself. [FRIEQ Universal Waterproof Dry Bag for Smartphones, $7 with code PIHNXZ8Y]

No matter how good Apple makes the battery life in their laptops, you’re always going to want a few more hours. And though it’s a little bit janky, ChugPlug’s external Mac battery is the best option you have right now.

Today on eBay, you can get a ChugPlug for any MacBook Air or 13” MacBook Pro for just $45, the best price we’ve ever seen. The ChugPlug attaches directly to your Mac’s power brick, and contains a 4,000mAh battery to give you 3-4 extra hours of battery life, on average. It might be a little bulky to keep attached to your power cord all the time, but it’s a perfect safety net for long days away from any power outlets. [ChugPlug for MacBook Air and 13” MacBook Pro, $45]

The compact Ninja Master Prep Professional is one of the more versatile kitchen gadgets you can own, and its back down to an all-time low $40 today on Amazon.

Want to mix up a frozen smoothie? Chop some onions? Puree a few tomatoes? The Ninja is designed for all of that, and includes three different-sized jars and blade sets to handle your disparate kitchen duties. You can’t say that about most blenders.

Despite the low price, the Ninja has a stellar 4.5 star review average on Amazon, which would be impressive for any inexpensive blender, let alone one as versatile as this. We’ve seen it drop to $40 a few times in the past, but it tends to jump back to the $50-$60 range fairly quickly, so act fast. [Ninja Master Prep Professional, $40]

Monoprice’s MHD action cam has long been a solid option for anyone who wanted a GoPro alternative for under $100, and today, the MHD 2.0 is down to an all-time low $60. I own the original model, and while its video quality is definitely no match for a GoPro, it’s perfectly decent for such a cheap piece of kit. [Monoprice MHD 2.0 1080p Action Camera, $60]

If you’ve been meaning to set up a NAS on your home network, Woot has great deals on a variety of QNAP diskless enclosures on sale today, ranging from one bay to four. [Your Choice: QNAP Diskless NAS, $135-$255]

Of course, these are nothing but expensive paperweights without drives to put in them, and we recommend NAS-optimized WD Reds.

Your favorite stick-anywhere touch lights are on sale again. This time around, the more you buy, the more you save. Just remember that these aren’t the motion-sensing models, so they won’t turn on automatically, but they’re still great for cabinets and closets.

You’re probably most familiar with the iRobot’s Roomba vacuums, but if your house has a lot of tile, laminate, or hardwood, the Braava is the same concept, applied to a mop. We’ve never seen it cheaper. [iRobot Braava 320 Floor Mopping Robot, $110]

If your cookware collection consists mostly of of warped $10 Walmart pans, it’s time to upgrade. Amazon’s currently offering a $30 coupon on three different Cuisinart cookware sets, plus great one day-only deals on several T-Fal sets ranging from inexpensive (but well reviewed) steel and non-stick sets, all the way up to restaurant quality (not to mention stunningly gorgeous) tri-ply copper.

Amazon’s knocked several popular Studio Ghibli Blu-rays down to $17 today. These movies rarely get significant discounts, and today’s deals represent an all-time low price.

Amazon just kicked off another of their popular app giveaways, featuring a number of popular (and a few obscure) apps for your Android device of choice.

This one’s a little smaller than similar promotions in the past, but it still features over $50 worth of apps, including The Bard’s Tale, Monument Valley, and Quell Momento. Be sure to head over to Amazon for the full list. [Over $50 in FREE Android Apps]

If you want to own your own drone, but don’t want to spend $1000 on something that could crash into a tree, this $25 nano quadcopter from Estes might be a good stepping stone. It doesn’t have a camera, and won’t be winning any races, but it could be a fun way to annoy your cat, at the very least. [Estes Syncro X Nano R/C Quadcopter, $25]

Sometimes you just want to make yourself a smoothie, without worrying about hauling out and cleaning a massive pitcher. Luckily, this 1100 watt Ninja Professional Blender offers you the best of both worlds.

The $105 setup includes a massive 72 ounce pitcher if you’re blending drinks for a party or your family, but also a 16 ounce blending glass that can lock into place when you’re blending for one. That means easier portion control, and a lot less cleanup once you’re done.

This particular Ninja usually sells for $140, and today’s $105 price tag is the best that Amazon’s ever listed. [Ninja Professional Blender, $105]

$5 off $50 isn’t a huge discount, but if you buy your games on PSN anyway, this is an extra $5 in your pocket. [$50 Sony Playstation Store Gift Card, $45]
