Top Deals

Automatic pet feeders aren’t exactly a new idea, but this is easily the smartest one I’ve seen.

The Arf Pets Automatic Pet Feeder can hold over a gallon of dry food at a time, and distribute perfectly portioned meals up to four times a day, on the schedule of your choosing. It’ll even sound an alarm as it dispenses the food, so your pet doesn’t miss out. I wouldn’t recommend leaving your pet alone for days with this thing, but if work keeps you late every once in awhile, it’d be great to know that your furry friend isn’t going hungry.

Today only, Amazon’s offering the Arf for $70, or $30 less than MSRP. Just note that it’s a Gold Box deal, so grab yours before they’re all gobbled up.

Amazon bills this buy two and save $5 promotion as a back to school special, but I’m not going back to school anytime soon, and I would still love to buy some of these snacks. Eligible products include everything from Lays chips to IZZE drinks to oatmeal, so head over to Amazon and pick out your two favorites.

Update: Now up to $7

Zika’s officially here, and Repel 100 was your pick for the best bug spray to protect yourself. If you haven’t picked up a bottle yet, and you have something else you’ve been meaning to buy, Amazon’s marked it down to an all-time low $6 (from $8) as an add-on item.

We’ve seen lots of deals on flash drives that include microUSB connectors for Android devices, but this one is designed just for iPhone and iPad owners.

Since iOS devices don’t let you use microSD cards for extra storage, SanDisk’s iExpand could come in handy for offloading your phone’s vacation photos if you’re running low on space, or storing extra movies and TV shows for long flights. $40 also happens is the best price Amazon’s ever listed on this model, so don’t miss out.

While these wouldn’t be cost-effective for your doomsday, three or four day emergency food packs might be worth keeping around for various natural disasters you might feasibly experience in your life.

The boxes include three or four days worth of food for a single person (1,650 calories per day), and are guaranteed to last on the shelf for 30 years. All you have to do for each meal is add hot water. Just note that this is a Gold Box deal, meaning these prices are only available today, or until sold out.

The Halo 5: Guardians Limited Edition must have been a real flop, because it’s selling for just $28 on Amazon today, an all-time low by $10, and miles and miles from its original $100.

That gets you the game, limited edition packaging, dossiers, the Halo: The Fall of Reach animated series, requisition packs, a Metal Earth Guardian model, and more. This was certainly not the best Halo game, but it’s still worth playing if you’ve enjoyed the rest of the series.

You know the little charging brick that came with your phone? Throw it out, and spend $7 on this replacement from Aukey (with code AUKEY12W). It’s basically the same size as Apple’s standard iPhone charger, but it includes two ports, folding prongs, and 2.4A of current (instead of 1A) to charge your devices faster.

Here’s a plot twist for you: You can save a bunch on Kindles, Fire TVs, Amazon Echoes, and more today, courtesy of...Best Buy? These price drops are right in line with what we’d expect to see from Amazon on Black Friday or Prime Day, so if you’re in the market for a new Amazon gadget, there’s no reason to skip this sale.

The arrival of the Xbox One S brought with it a revamped controller, and Amazon’s running the first discount we’ve seen.

Note: Only the white model on this Amazon listing is the new controller. The other color options are the old model.

The Xbox One S gamepad improves on the original with a textured grip, double the range, and most importantly, Bluetooth, meaning you can connect it to your PC without an adapter.

If you don’t need the latest and greatest Xbox One S, Best Buy will sell you one of three previous-generation Xbox One bundles and a 50" Sharp Roku TV for a flat $500 right now, or $100 less than buying both separately. I paid that much for an Xbox One with no games (and obviously, no TV) when it came out in 2013.

You don’t need to buy a new car, or even a new stereo, to enjoy Bluetooth calling and audio streaming on the road. You just need an AUX jack and this $15 dongle.

If you don’t immediately think jeans when you think Levi’s, I think it’s time to come out of that 100 year old rock you’ve been living under. And, with BOGO 50% off denim at Levi’s when you use the code BOGO50, you’ll be able to come out of that rock wearing really great pants.

If you’re in the market for a solid mid-range gaming headset on a budget, the Logitech G430 is down to $40 today, a match for the best price we’ve seen since Black Friday.

Whether you’re back-to-school shopping for your kid or just getting into adult coloring books, Amazon’s deeply discounting Crayola art supplies in today’s Gold Box.

A few days ago, we saw an 8TB WD external hard drive for $220, which was a great deal. But if you skipped out, this Seagate version is a whopping $30 cheaper.

Now that Harry Potter is culturally relevant again, it may be a good time to pick up the 8-film Blu-ray set for $60, or about $10 less than usual.

Update: Sold out.

If you missed out on Prime Day, Bose’s highly-rated SoundTrue II around-ear headphones are back down to $100 today, matching their all-time low price.

Mpow’s matte iPhone 6/6s case is one of the thinnest you can buy, and today, it’s also one of the cheapest. The code should work on all three colors.

Strip lights can add dramatic accents to your home, or just light up the area under your kitchen cabinets, and this 16' TaoTronics set is a great deal for $24.

The strip packs in 1.5 LEDs per inch, which far exceeds most competing models, and you can use the included remote to dim them or choose from over 4,000 different colors. They’re certainly not the cheapest strip lights we’ve seen, but outside of expensive Philips Hue strips, they might be the most versatile.

If you own a boat, motorcyle, RV, or even car that doesn’t get a ton of use during certain months of the year, this $15 trickle charger can keep its battery charged up and healthy, so you don’t have any nasty surprises waiting for you the next time you try to start it up. Today’s deal isn’t a huge discount, but it is the best price Amazon’s ever listed.

Update: Sold out

You might not need to use a Dremel all that often, but it’s one of those things everyone should keep in their tool box, if only for sanding wood and carving jack-o-lanterns. Luckily, Amazon’s offering a basic starter kit today for just $36, an all-time low.

The Dremel MM-20 features a variable speed motor that can spin anywhere from 10,000 to 21,000 RPM, and includes six accessories to get you started with projects all around the house.

Mpow’s super-simple motion-sensing solar outdoor lights can illuminate your yard or porch with no wiring or maintenance, and you can get one for $11, or two for $21 today on Amazon.

The Logitech G502 was your choice for best gaming mouse (though you don’t need to be a gamer to appreciate its benefits), and the upgraded Proteus Spectrum model (which includes fully adjustable backlighting) is on sale for an all-time low $60 today, matching a deal from a few weeks ago.

The marquee spec here is the DPI range of 200-12,000, adjustable on the fly. There are also five easily movable and removable weights, and 11 customizable buttons, along with the classic Logitech dual-mode scroll wheel. Mechanical microswitches and a braided cable are also nice touches.

Stocking up on basics at H&M is a no-brainer. The already low prices lend themselves to saving you a bunch of money and even if they’re cheap, they last. Right now, grab two basics tees or tank tops for only $10. It really is that simple.

No need to worry about the quality of the built-in apps on your 4K TV when Roku is built right in. This 2016 model hit a new price low today by $40.

We’re all probably a bit ashamed of the amount of produce we allow to spoil in the fridge, but these Rubbermaid FreshWorks containers use a few neat tricks to extend your food’s lifespan, and avoid unnecessary waste.

First, each FreshWorks product includes a “crisp tray” which elevates the food off the bottom of the container, giving moisture a place to drip, and air enough room to flow. Second and most importantly, the lids feature special filters that regulate the flow of oxygen and CO2 into and out of the containers. All told, Rubbermaid claims keeps food fresh up to 80% longer than store packaging.

It may sounds too good to be true, but customer reviews are fantastic, and Amazon’s taking offering a 2-piece set for $17 today, matching an all-time low. If they save just a few batches of arugula or scoops of blueberries that you would have otherwise thrown out, they’ll have already paid for themselves.

By now, you should know that Anker PowerLine Lightning cables are incredibly popular, but did you know there’s another tier of cables above them? Anker’s PowerLine+ line increases the bend lifespan from 5,000 to 6,000 and adds a nylon braided exterior. Want to see one for yourself? The 3' model is available in red for $13 today, or about two bucks less than usual.

Hoover’s Sweethome-recommended Air Cordless 2-in-1 vacuum acts as both an upright and a hand vacuum, all in a single, sleek, battery-powered package. $105 is within $5 of the best price Amazon’s ever listed, so grab one before they’re all vacuumed up.

If you’ve ever thought about pulling out your blender to make a smoothie, sauce, or dip, and then held off because you didn’t want to clean 3,000 different parts, this deal is for you. The 4.3 star-rated Cuisinart Smart Stick Hand Blender is down to $27 today on Amazon.

The big advantage here is that unlike a traditional blender, you can dip the Smart Stick into whatever container you were already using to hold your ingredients; be it a single-serve cup or a huge mixing bowl. That saves you time, and means fewer dishes to clean up once you’re done. Reviewers also say it chops through everything from fruit to ice cubes with no trouble, so it really can be a full blender replacement for most use cases.

We’ve already started to see some bundle deals on the new and improved Xbox One S, but this is by far the best one yet.
