Top Deals

ASUS’s Zenfone 2 was already one of the best affordable smartphones on the market at its typical price, and today only, Amazon’s taking an extra $130 off the highest end model.

First, the basics. $269 gets you a 2.3Ghz Intel processor, 4GB of RAM, a 5.5" IPS display, and 128GB (!!!) of built-in storage. There are also a few extra goodies here to enjoy, like dual SIM slots and a pair of interchangeable back plates. It’ll only work on GSM networks like AT&T or T-Mobile, but if you’re in the market for a good phone, you’d be hard pressed to find a better deal.

Just note that like all Gold Box deals, this price is only available today, or until sold out.

If you need a little extra motivation to start exercising, Amazon’s offering great prices on Saucony running shoes, apparel, and accessories, today only. Prices start under $40 for shoes, and all of the clothing items are available for under $20, so sprint over to Amazon to check out the full selection.

Note: Several of these include multiple color options; click through to the product page to see them.

This 480GB SSD was down to an all-time low $94 during yesterday’s Amazon Gold Box deal, but if you missed out, it’s just $1 more today on Best Buy’s eBay storefront. Even if you don’t want to install this directly into a computer, it would make a great external drive as well.

If you hurry over to GameStop, you can save $15 on a Steam Controller or Steam Link, representing the first true deals we’ve seen on these products. Plus, use promo code SAVER at checkout for free shipping.

It’s summer, you’re an adult...why shouldn’t you buy your own snow cone machine? $45 is the lowest price ever on this Hawaiian Shaved Ice starter kit, which includes the ice machine, 25 cups, and three bottles of syrup. Just watch out for brain freeze.

The Ninja Professional BL660 recently took home the title of your favorite affordable blender, and Amazon’s marked it down to $106 today.

Granted, that’s not an all-time low price (it’s dipped to $98 on a few brief occasions), but you’ll frequently see it for $120 or more, so if you’re in the market, I’d pull the trigger. The BL660 includes an 1100 watt motor, a 72 ounce pitcher, and a pair of single-serve smoothie cups so you don’t have to clean the big pitcher every time you feel like making yourself a smoothie to go.

Amazon went out and made their own felt laptop sleeves, and all three sizes are down to all-time low prices today. Each sleeve includes a pocket for your laptop, a velcro clasp, and several smaller pockets for cables, mice, and pens, and other trinkets.

Chevron’s Techron fuel system cleaner claims to clean, restore, and protect the entire fuel system in your vehicle, and judging by the glowing user reviews, it really does seem to work. Amazon will sell you a 20 ounce bottle today for $7, which is inexplicably less than the current price of the 12 ounce bottle.

In the market for a new TV? This curved 3D 4K Samsung smart TV is down to $1199 on BuyDig’s eBay storefront today, or $400 less than Amazon.

Update: Sold out

The Philips Sonicare Airfloss Ultra is rechargeable, handheld, and can be used with water or mouthwash, firing 1-3 bursts of high pressure cleaning between your teeth and along your gum line. It’s painless, easy to use, travel and shower friendly, and most importantly, you might actually start flossing if you have one.

For a limited time, Amazon’s offering a $10 off coupon on this model, bringing it all the way down to $40.

Amazon’s Prime Pantry program is great for stocking up on household goods and non-perishable foods without actually having to visit a store, but the $5.99 per box shipping charge has always been a drag. This month though, if you buy five select items, you can get that fee waived.

Bonus: If you already have a no-rush free shipping credit in your account, this deal actually appears to stack, netting you an extra $6 discount.

They ran a similar promotion the last few months with different eligible items. Just add five of them to your box (plus anything else that will fit), and use code PANTRYJUN at checkout to get free shipping.

The humble and inexpensive cast iron skillet is one of most important pieces of cooking gear you can own, and Lodge’s highly-rated 10” model is back down to $15 again on Amazon. If you don’t own one, you shouldn’t hesitate.

Cooking for one? The 8" model is down to $10 as well.

While you’re there, pick up some cast iron scrapers or a chainmail scrubber for cleaning, and a silicone handle cover to protect your hands.

It only has the one port, but still, $5 is one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on a Quick Charge 2.0 wall charger.

If you’re in the market for a new Windows laptop, ASUS’s K401 is a fantastic rig for $570.

That gets you a 14" 1080p screen, a Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM, and NVIDIA GeForce 940M graphics. The one glaring weakness here is the 750GB HDD, but you could easily swap in an SSD later.

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 $67.

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.

Before you head out on your next summer road trip, be sure to pick up this headrest tablet stand for just $17 with code TABLETBK. Just about everyone these days uses tablets to keep their kids (or adult passengers) quiet in the backseat, and this mount should be a dramatic ergonomic improvement.

Whether you’re trimming your beard, giving out haircuts, or completely obliterating body hair with an epilator, today’s Remington Gold Box deal on Amazon has you covered. A few highlights are below, but head over to Amazon to see all of the available deals.

Update: Sold out

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.

We’ve seen DualShock 4 controllers dip as low as $39 on extremely rare occasions, but if you need a spare, I wouldn’t hesitate at $45.

And in case you missed it, Xbox One controllers are available for $40 today as well.

If you need an extra controller for your Xbox One, or just want to upgrade your PC gamepad, this $40 deal is a match for the best we’ve seen. And yes, this is the new model with a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The PS Vita doesn’t get a ton of new games at this point, but it might be worth it just for remote PS4 streaming, and you can pick one up a refurb just $100 today, easily the best price we’ve ever seen.

For a few years now, Antec’s USB-powered HDTV bias light has been one of our most reliably popular deals whenever it went on sale. The problem: It only got a significant discount once every few months. Luckily, a copycat has emerged to fill in the gap.

Just like the Antec model, these Vansky LED light strips plug directly into your TV’s USB port for power, and sticks to the back of the set via built-in adhesive. Once you turn your TV on, the light strip will cast a soft glow on the wall behind it, which can reduce eyestrain when watching in the dark, and improve your TV’s perceived black levels.

Whenever we post a deal on the Antec light, it sells out within hours. I’m not sure if that’ll be the case today, but I wouldn’t take any chances.

It’s not unusual to see a deal on one of KMASHI’s ultra-popular (and ultra-affordable) USB battery packs, but today, you have discounts on three different capacities to choose from. Just be sure to note the promo codes.

These Magformers magnetic building blocks are ostensibly designed for kids, but hell if I don’t want them myself. Amazon’s discounting over a dozen different sets today, starting at just $15.

If you have kids, Amazon ingeniously created a kid-centric version of its popular 7" Fire tablet, and you can save $20 when you buy one today, or $50 if you buy two (using code SUMMER2PACK).

The Kids Edition includes a rugged rubber case, parental controls, a year’s subscription to FreeTime Unlimited (a subscription service with tons of kid-friendly media), and a two year warranty that covers accidental damage. Kids will love using it, and you’ll love the peace and quiet.

If you want to stop paying your cable company $100/month for channels you don’t watch, it might be time to cut the cord. Between services like Netflix, Hulu+, Sling TV, and HBO Now, it’s easier than ever to declare cable independence, but a good antenna is still a critical piece of equipment for picking up your local broadcast stations.

Today on Amazon, the Mohu Leaf 30 is down to $30, or about $10 less than usual. Lifehacker readers voted the Leaf as their favorite antenna, praising its unobtrusive design and great performance, and while it’s not amplified, it should pull in most major networks if you live in or near a city.

If you have any old hard drives laying around, or if you just want to build a super-fast external SSD to store your files, this 2.5" enclosure can convert a bare storage device into a portable external drive in seconds. Plus, $8 is the best price we’ve ever seen on a model that supports UASP, which enables faster transfer speeds when using an SSD.

Brother laser printers dominated the voting in our Kinja Co-Op for best printer, and it’s easy to see why: They basically never jam, toner is much cheaper than ink (and it never dries out if you don’t use it), and they print much faster than any other consumer-level printer; on the order of 25-30 pages per minute, even when printing duplex. The glaring trade-off is that they don’t print in color, but it’s easier to live without that than you might think.

Update: The 2380DW has sold out on Amazon, but you can get it from eBay for the same price.

The two models on sale today both include all of the advantages seen above, but the $65 HL-2300D is a USB-connected, barebones affair, while the $100 HL-2380DW adds a scanner, a touchscreen, and wireless networking, including AirPrint and Google Cloud Print. Both prices are the best we’ve seen in months, so do yourself a favor and lock in your order before they sell out.
