Top Deals

As part of their Black Friday in July sale (sound familiar?), Best Buy is offering great deals on select iPads and Macs from Apple. The iPad Air 2 deal in particular is the best discount we’ve ever seen, but the computers are great deals too, especially if you have a .edu email address.

If you like to mix drinks at home, you’ll want to pick up the beloved Tovolo King Cube Ice Tray for $6 today. That’s not quite an all-time low price, but it’s on the low end of its normal range. If you haven’t seen it before, all you need to know is that the King Cube is designed for one thing: Making really big ice cubes.

One large ice cube has less surface area than several smaller ones, meaning it’ll melt slower and dilute your drink less. That’s great for boozy drinks, but the same principle would apply in a glass of soda or tea, so you should be able to get plenty of use out of this. It also happens to carry a stellar 4.5 star rating on nearly 2,000 reviews, and is a must-own for any in-home mixologists. [Tovolo King Cube Ice Tray - Stratus Blue, $6]

Bonus: It probably won’t be any more effective at cooling your drink, but if you prefer the look of ice balls, this mold will make four of them at once for just $7. [Froz Ice Ball Maker, $7]

It’s not a huge discount, but $10 off is the first deal of any sort we’ve seen on the Apple Watch. More importantly though, most buyers won’t have to pay sales tax, which sweetens the deal considerably compared to buying directly from Apple. [Apple Watch Sport 38mm, $340. No tax for most]

If you’ve been on the fence about upgrading your home theater to 4K, there are several deals today that might push you over the edge.

Today only on Amazon, you can drink deep from the discount well with great deals on LifeStraw products. If you aren’t familiar, these allow you to slurp up basically any water you find in nature without fear of viruses or bacteria. I really wish I had one right now, because apparently the drinking water I have access to at the moment has E. Coli in it! [Select LifeStraw Products are Deeply Discounted at Amazon]

If you’re in the market for a cheap laptop, you can choose from either Windows or Chrome OS for under $150 today at Best Buy.

Acer 11.6” Intel Chromebook ($129) | Best Buy

Asus 11.6” Intel Atom, 2GB, 32GB, Windows 8 Laptop ($150) | Best Buy

This 7W solar charger doesn’t have amazing reviews, but at an absurdly cheap $15, it might be worth checking out if you spend a lot of time outdoors. [7W Solar Charger, Poweradd Portable Foldable Solar Panel Charger, $15 with code ZMJ2WD9N]

Most of the bad reviews seem to relate to its issues with charging iPhones directly. If you’re having trouble with that, I’d suggest using it to power up an external USB battery pack instead, and then charge your iPhone from there. [Lumsing 8000mAh Ultrathin Bank External Battery Pack, $11 with code Q77ITI44]

A surge protector these days feels a little incomplete without some USB ports, and this BESTEK model includes four of them, in addition to six AC outlets. It also has a very outdated Apple 30 pin connector dock, which is probably why you can get it so cheap. [BESTEK Wall Charging Station/Surge Protector with 6 AC Outlets +4 USB Ports, $11 with code PH4SDLTP]

We see the Wii U Deluxe marked down to $260 fairly often, but this deal from Best Buy might be even more enticing. You’ll pay the full $300 MSRP for either the standard Deluxe bundle (which includes Super Mario 3D World and Nintendoland), or the new Splatoon bundle, but you’ll get a Wii U Pro Controller and an essentials kit thrown in for free. That’s a particularly good deal if you want to try Splatoon, as we haven’t seen many discounts on that bundle yet. [Your choice of Wii U Deluxe Bundle with FREE Essentials Kit and Pro Controller, $300]

It’s not the new model with a voice control remote, and it’s refurbished, but $63 for a Roku 3 is still one of the better streaming box deals we’ve seen. [Refurb Roku 3, $63]

Update: Groupon also has the Roku Streaming Stick marked down to $30.

If you need to catch up on the Ghostbusters franchise before Paul Feig’s reboot, here are the first two films on Blu-ray for just $10. [Ghostbusters / Ghostbusters II, 4K-Mastered, $10]

If you’re primarily a console gamer, but want to keep a decent mouse around for your occasional forays into PC gaming, this $10 Kingtop model is a solid bet. [Kingtop Highest 5500 DPI Gaming Mice with 7 Button Side Control 5 Respiring LED, $10 with code NEQPWBKK]

You guys have bought a ton of Omaker M4 shower-proof Bluetooth speakers, and you’ve bought even more 5-port USB charging hubs. If you’ve somehow missed out on both, you can remedy that with this $35 bundle today.

I own this car vacuum, and it does an admirable job of cleaning everything from pet hair to french fry crumbs, both of which are in ample supply in my car. It’s not as powerful as the massive quarter-fed vacuum at your local car wash, but it’s great for touch-ups in between detail cleanings. [ArmorAll AA12V1 0901 Wet/Dry 12V Vacuum Cleaner, $20]
