Top Deals

Vivon’s foam chairs will certainly turn some heads, but if their minimalist style suits your home, you can choose from multiple shapes and colors for just $84 in today’s Amazon Gold Box.

The chairs arrive at your front door compressed in a vacuum-sealed bag. Just break the seal, and the small bundle will expand into a full piece of furniture, which sounds like a great Snapchat opportunity. Just remember that today’s deal is the best price Amazon’s ever offered, but it’s only available today (or until sold out), so get off your butt and head over to Amazon.

You’re probably familiar with the color-changing Hue lights that screw into your existing lamps and light fixtures, but for truly dramatic lighting effects, you’ll want to pick up a few Hue Bloom accent lights as well.

These fully-integrated light fixtures sit on the floor or on an end table and point towards the wall, allowing them to “paint” an entire side of a room in the color of your choice. $45 is a match for the best price we’ve ever seen on these, so if you’re already invested in the Hue ecosystem, you should absolutely pick up at least one.

Anker’s back at it again with the discounts, with a special focus today on phone cases. Most of the options here are for iPhones, but there’s also a Galaxy S7 case, and a universal dry bag. Check out all of the deals below, and be sure to note the promo codes.

Just because you’re outdoors and/or floating on a body of water doesn’t mean you can’t have something comfortable to sit on. This $40 inflatable blob might stretch the definition of “couch,” but it certainly beats sitting in the dirt. This particular model includes a water bottle holder, plus two side pockets to hold your phone and other gear.

If your phone supports Qi wireless charging, $8 is a great price for a charging pad. I recommend stocking up, and scattering these all around your home and office. Just use promo code FJ8ABTSW at checkout to get the discount.

All four of Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock novels, plus four short story collections, all for free? The decision to download this to your Kindle is elementary.

$13 is a great price for a water resistant Bluetooth speaker. Throw in a free Bluetooth selfie stick for good measure, and it’s unheard of.

Just add both items to your cart, and apply either code OJSSO3VO (black speaker) or C9Y3C9WO (yellow speaker) at checkout to get the discount.

Nature Valley bars are my weekday breakfast of choice, and Amazon’s taking an extra 20% off dozens of varieties today. The deal is valid on crunchy bars, chewy bars, breakfast biscuits, granola clusters, and more, so head over to Amazon to stock up on your favorites.

Note: Discount shown at checkout

If you’re in the market for a solid pair of new headphones, BuyDig will sell you a pair of Klipsch X4is with inline iOS remote for $35, the best price we’ve ever seen. For reference, these are selling for $15 more on Amazon right now.

Cuisinart’s 3-in-1 Griddler is one of the most versatile kitchen appliances you can own, and it can be yours today for just $60.

Why stop with just a griddle, grill, and panini press? Add the optional waffle iron plates to your cart, and get even more use out of your new toy.

UE’s new Roll Bluetooth speaker is the company’s smallest offering, and reviews indicate that it lives up to its UE Boom predecessors. If you’ve been waiting for a discount to pick one up, you can save a whopping $50 on yours in Reef (pictured) or Pinata. That’s a match for the best price we’ve ever seen.

DJI’s newest prosumer camera drone changes the game with automatic obstacle avoidance and subject tracking, and this $200 discount on Amazon is one of the first big deals we’ve seen (though it was $50 less a few weeks ago). $1,200's still a considerable chunk of change, particularly when you can get a Phantom 3 Professional for under $1000, but it’s a solid deal if you’re serious about the hobby.

We’ve seen our fair share of cheap Bluetooth ear buds, but how about on-ears? Mpow’s Muze Touch headphones are wireless, foldable, and can run for 12 hours on a charge. That’s a heck of a package for $30. Remember, your next phone might not have a headphone jack, so this is as good a time as any to get accustomed to wireless.

The 2TB Xbox One S is out now, and if you buy it from eBay today, you’ll get a free year of Xbox Live Gold and a copy of Sunset Overdrive to get you started .

Obviously, this isn’t much of a deal compared to some standard Xbox One bundles that we’ve seen, but if you own a 4K TV, it doesn’t make a ton of sense to buy the old model anymore.

Grey felt laptop sleeves are so popular that they inspired a line of AmazonBasics knock-offs, but you can get even better deals by buying from Inateck today. Just pick the right size for your computer from the list below, and be sure to apply the corresponding promo code at checkout.

Sure, your phone’s alarm will wake you up on time, but it doesn’t include an FM radio, it won’t function as a nightstand USB charger, and it definitely can’t project the current time onto your wall or ceiling. For a limited time, you can save $10 on this alarm clock with code 6W94OI4P.

$15 would be a fair price for a single LED camping lantern. Today though, that gets you three of them, plus nine AA batteries to get you started.

Once you use up those batteries, we recommend you replace them with rechargeable Eneloops.

Doonesbury has had a lot to say over the years about dried out circus peanut Donald Trump, and you can relive it all with this 112 page compendium. Just know that once he wins, owning this will be a federal crime.

Blessed are the cheesemakers, but you don’t need much cheddar to buy Monty Pyton’s Life of Brian on Blu-ray.

We’ve all had to throw away leftovers or cuts of meat and cheese that spent a little too much time in the fridge or freezer, but vacuum sealing your foods can keep them safe from freezer burn pretty much indefinitely, and dramatically extend their shelf life everywhere else.

It sounds like an expensive proposition, but today, Amazon’s selling this well-reviewed FoodSaver V3240 Starter Kit for just $72, an all-time low, and almost $50 less than usual. Of course you can use this to store meats in the freezer for a long time, but it can also keep cheese from molding, lettuce from wilting, or cookies from going stale, just to name a few examples. Think about how much food you throw away, and you’ll get a sense of just how quickly this purchase could pay for itself.

Your favorite USB car charger just happens to be the smallest one you can buy, and you can grab it on Amazon for $9 today with code 2CARCHAR. We’ve seen it go as low as $6 on a few occasions, but this is the best deal we’ve seen in several months, if it’s been on your wish list.

Note: Be sure to buy from Aukey’s Amazon listing, not from Amazon directly.

With a 20% off your purchase when you use the code BACK2SCHOOL, PUMA’s Back-to-School Sale could score you two pairs of sneakers for the price of one. Apparel, bags and accessories, workout gear, even sale items are also included in this discount. Just add the code and watch the numbers drop.

It’s becoming increasingly clear that USB-C is going to push microUSB to the scrap heap of tech history, so if you haven’t replaced all of your old charging gear, Anker’s running deals on their popular kevlar-wrapped PowerLine cables, and chargers of all shapes and sizes today.

Head over to yesterday’s post for all of the links and promo codes.

Creed is worth watching for Rocky fans and newcomers alike, and now that you can rent it digitally from Amazon and iTunes for a buck, you don’t have any excuse to miss it. As always, you’ll have 30 days to start watching it, and then 24 hours to finish.

The brand new VAVA Voom 20 has everything you could want from a mid-sized Bluetooth speaker: Passive subwoofers, dual 8W drivers, USB power output, IPX5 splash resistance, NFC...shall I go on?

For a limited time, you can save $20 on the speaker with promo code GOVOOM20 when you purchase form Amazon. Just don’t wake your neighbors.

Giant plugs that cover up half the outlets on your power strip should be outlawed, but until that day arrives, these short extension cords will have to do. $13 gets you a pack of 10, which should be enough for even the most advanced home theater setups.

Phone cameras will never have true interchangeable lenses, but you can still take fisheye, wide angle, and macro photos with this newly updated clip-on lens kit from Mpow. Be sure to check out the sample photos uploaded by customers to get an idea of what this kit is capable of.

It’s a first world problem, but I hate waiting for my Xbox One controller to turn on and sync to the console just to pause a Netflix video. If that’s driving you crazy as well, this always-on media remote is only $19 today on Amazon, an all-time low.

It turns out, you don’t have to exclusively use your laptop in bed or on the couch. This desk is minimal, attractive, and only costs $44 shipped with Prime. That’s an all-time low price, and we don’t expect it to last long.

Before you go out and spend hundreds of dollars on a DJI Phantom, you can learn the basics of flying a quadcopter with this $24 toy drone from Aukey. Trust me, if you can fly this thing, you can fly a GPS-equipped, gyro-stabilized camera rig. And if not, well, it’s not like crashing it will be that big a deal.

You will always run out of clean underwear before you run out of any other kind of clean clothing. It’s basically a Proverb at this point. Delay that trip to the laundromat a little longer with 5-for-$25 Out From Under underwear at Urban Outfitters. There are a few different styles to choose from, from boyshorts and hipsters to thongs and lace. - Jillian

Here’s something to chew on: Amazon’s taking an extra 40% off Mentos gum for a limited time. The deal applies to both single bottles (with 50 pieces of gum each) and multi-packs with four or six bottles, so find your favorite flavor, and grab this deal before the bubble bursts.

Note: Discount shown at checkout.

You can never have enough Lightning cables, and we’ve spotted two different options on sale today, including a 6.6' model for just $7.

Amazon’s free Prime Pantry shipping promotion seems to be a permanent fixture at this point, but each month brings a new slate of eligible items, and August’s have just been revealed.

As always, just add five of the items on this page to your Prime Pantry box, enter code PANTRYAUG at checkout, and the $6 shipping charge will be waived. Plus, if you happen to have a free Pantry shipping credit from accepting no rush shipping on a previous Amazon order, it should stack, granting you an additional $6 discount.

There are literally hundreds of products available for the promotion, so you should have no trouble finding five that you need. As for the rest of your box, check out this page for every Pantry item that includes an additional coupon.
