Top Deals

Still haven’t made the transition to LED? Amazon will sell you a 6-pack of highly rated TaoTronics bulbs for just $13 right now with promo code RSHKZDMQ. These put out the brightness equivalent of a 60W incandescent, but with only 9W of electricity each. Plus, many local utility companies offer rebates when you buy these things, so they should pay for themselves in short order.

The deal is available for both 5000K daylight bulbs, which are ideal for bathrooms and kitchens, and 3000K soft white bulbs which are generally better for relaxation areas like your living room and bedroom.

Hardly anyone needs a mousepad, but this brushed aluminum one looks incredible, and its product description encourages you to“fondle admiringly” so there’s that.

I would have appreciated this deal more if it came at the beginning of summer, but $61 is still a great price for a rolling wicker cooler that can hold up to 72 cans at your next backyard barbecue. The only thing it’s missing is a bottle opener on the side.

If you have trips on the horizon, you can save $10 basically anywhere with this discounted gift card. That’s an, uh, obvious deal.

LED strip lights can add an cool-looking glow to bookshelves, kitchen counters, and furniture, and at $11, everyone can afford it. This 16' waterproof strip can display 20 different colors via the included remote, and can even be cut to length, or combined with additional strips if you need a longer continuous track of light.

Note: You’ll need a power adapter like this one to power the strips.

Large dresser drawers aren’t really designed for socks and underwear, but these inexpensive inserts add the walls and compartments you need to keep your unmentionables from spilling out of control.

If your home isn’t outfitted with enough smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, drop what you’re doing (literally, stop), and go stock up on Kidde products over on Amazon. If you buy $100 worth of detectors and safety ladders, you’ll automatically get a $20 discount at checkout.

Inside, you’ll find smoke and carbon monoxide detectors with multiple power options, models that detect both hazards simultaneously, and more. Just note that you won’t see the discount until checkout. Stay safe!

If your phone supports Qi wireless charging, $7 is one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on a charging pad. I recommend stocking up, and scattering these all around your home and office. Just use promo code G9OB643I at checkout to get the discount.

Just when you thought you knew everything there was to know about cable management, the depths of Amazon toss you a surprise. This magnetic cable clip system includes one magnetic base that you can stick anywhere via its included adhesive, and three magnetic clips that you attach to your most-used cables, allowing them to stick to the base effortlessly.

There are surely less expensive cable holders out there—we post deals on them frequently—but the allure of just dropping your cable onto a magnetic base and knowing that it’ll stay put is awfully tempting.

Collecting amiibo is nearly as addictive as collecting Pokémon, and Best Buy’s making it easy today with big savings on two dozen amiibo figurines and cards. Just note that these prices are only available today, so lock in your purchases before the deal runs out of lives.

The Phantom 3 Standard today has been surpassed by the Phantom 4 and Mavic Pro, but it’s still a damn good flying camera for $399. At that price, you’ll lose out on features like the accident avoidance, indoor positioning, and 4K video, but the camera still boasts an impressive 2.7K resolution, and it’ll last over 20 minutes on a single charge. Just don’t forget to register it with the FAA!

Ready to get fit? Today only, Amazon’s offering big discounts on a huge array of Garden of Life protein products. Inside, you’ll find dozens of powders in a variety of flavors and formulas. You’ll also save more if you use Subscribe & Save. Just remember that like all Gold Box deals, these prices are only available today, or until sold out.

Akira is one of those films that should be in every anime movie fan’s collection, and Amazon’s knocked the 25th Anniversary Blu-ray down to $15 today, the best price we’ve seen all year.

Most ~$20 Bluetooth speakers feature a single 5W driver, or maybe stereo 3W drivers. But if you need something louder, this TaoTronics Pulse X speaker includes dual 7W drivers for the same price. Just use promo code SFCJCXET to turn up your $16 discount.

Apple’s “lickable” 5K Retina iMac is a pretty incredible all-in-one PC, and you can save $400 on a 27" model that includes a 2TB Fusion drive today. $1,900's still not cheap, but spec for spec, it’s pretty competitive with Windows machines when you account for that fantastic screen.

We’re no strangers to USB hub deals, but this one is only $7, made of aluminum, and about as thin as physically possible, making it great for travel. That’s a winning combination.

For just $5 today, you can sip your drinks in style with a four pack stainless steel drinking straws, either bent or straight. I own the bent ones, and use them for everything from Coke Zero to Moscow Mules. And don’t worry, they come with a little tube cleaner to help you wash them.

Movado is a classic and iconic watch brand, but with the price point over $1,000, it could feel incredibly unattainable for most. But with Nordstrom Rack’s Movado Event, you can score a gorgeous timepiece for half the retail price, with a few styles coming in under $400.

Both men’s and women’s styles are marked down, but you’d better hurry because this is only a 24 hour event.

Instead of overpaying for a terrible umbrella on the sidewalk next time it starts raining, invest $8 in this highly rated Bodyguard. Featuring fiberglass ribs, high density waterproof material, and one-button operation, it’s built to last, and you can save over $5 on any color today with promo code AH7G38P7.

HBO’s Emmy award-winning Going Clear is the definitive documentary on Scientology, and if you don’t have access to an HBO Go account, the Blu-ray is on sale for just $8 on Amazon today. Just don’t blame us when you incur Xenu’s wrath.

If your car takes synthetic oil, and you like to change it yourself, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better deal than $9 for five quarts of Penzoil synthetic oil, when you use Subscribe & Save. You’ll need to fill out this online rebate form to get $10 back, but for this price, it’s worth the hassle.

Epic All Natural snack bars are made largely from meat, because America, and Amazon’s offering a nice $4 coupon on various 12-count boxes today. Beef, turkey, bacon? I’m not sure how anyone could choose. Just add your favorite flavor to your cart, and you’ll see the $4 discount at checkout.

Note: Some of these boxes will only ship as part of a Prime Pantry order, but others are available via standard Prime and/or Subscribe & Save shipping, so watch out for that before you order.

We posted a deal yesterday on a 43" Samsung 4K TV (and it’s still available), but if you were holding out for a larger model, the 50" is now on sale for just $99 more.

You might recall that the 55" version of this set was on sale during Prime Day. Well, I got it, and it’s fantastic. You get a great 4K upscaling engine, speedy smart apps, HDR support, and of course, an overall great picture. If you want some more takes, check out the set’s Amazon page, where it has a 4.4 star average on nearly 500 reviews.

These Aukey Bluetooth earbuds run for eight hours, include a two year warranty, and only cost $16 today with promo code AUKEYBT3. I know it’s not an apples-to-apples comparison, but all three of those specs are better than Apple’s upcoming AirPods.

iTunes gift card discounts are noticeably less common than they used to be, and while we do see 20% discounts from time to time, a $100 iTunes gift card for $85, or a $50 card for $42.50 is still a solid deal if you pay for apps, movies, Apple Music, iCloud storage, or PokéCoins.

iClever’s BoostDrive car charger isn’t quite as small as your favorite car charger from Aukey, but it’s pretty darn close, and at $5, it’s even cheaper. And yes, it puts out 2.4A simultaneously on each port, which will give you the fastest possible charging speeds short of Quick Charge.

No matter what size laptop you own, there’s an attractive sleeve from Inateck on sale today to keep it safe and scratch-free. Just pick your size, and note the promo codes below.

A good, large duffel bag is just one of those things that everyone should own, and it’s tough to beat an 80L bag for $18 (with code SIH7PVH7), especially when you can pick from 10 different colors. This one’s too large to be used at the gym or as a carry-on, but it’d be a great checked bag.

The Amazon Fire HD 6 is one of the best sub-$100 tablets you can buy, and you can score a certified refurb from Amazon today for just $45 with promo code KINJA11, the best price we’ve ever seen by $5. This tablet is a steal at its usual $70, and considering that the refurbs come with the standard one year warranty, this could be a great early holiday gift for anyone who could use a small tablet.

A good label maker is something everyone should own, and the top-selling DYMO LabelManager 160 is back in stock for just $10 today, matching an all-time low.

If you remember the old label makers that literally pressed the letters into a piece of tape, this is a bit more advanced than what you’re picturing. The Dymo LabelManager 160 can print in eight fonts at six sizes, along with clipart and special characters, and you can even preview the entire label on its LCD screen before you print.

We’ve seen this deal a couple times in the last few weeks, but it always sells out quickly, so act fast.

You’ve heard of Automatic’s smart driving assistant, but if $80-$100 is too rich for your blood, this cheap OBD2 dongle connects to any iPhone or Android device over Wi-Fi, and can fulfill many of the same functions using various third party apps.
