Top Deals

It’s amazing how much easier vacuuming can seem when you don’t have to worry about a power cord, and this $79 battery-powered vac from Black & Decker promises to make cleaning a breeze.

Obviously, the vacuum’s compact design makes it ideal for cleaning furniture, shelves, and your car, but it also includes a stick vac floor extension for a more traditional experience. Users seem to love it to the tune of a 4.3 star review average, and today’s $79 price tag is an all-time low on Amazon. Just note that like all Gold Box deals, this price is only available today, or until sold out, so grab yours before they’re all vacuumed up.

We posted this sound bar system for $300 last week, which at the time was the best price we’d seen. Turns out though, if you have an Amazon Rewards Visa, you can save an additional $60!

If you aren’t familiar, this VIZIO system offers true 5.1 surround sound by way of a wireless subwoofer and a pair of satellite speakers (which plug into the subwoofer), all without the aid of of a receiver, and without the need to run any cables from your TV to the back of the room. I own a smaller version of the same setup, and absolutely love it.

All you have to do is add the system to your cart, select your Amazon Rewards Visa as the method of payment, and use code ARC20SPRING. It’s part of a larger 20% off promotion for cardholders, and while this is the most intriguing deal available, you can see the rest here.

NETGEAR’s AC1750 wireless router is one of the most popular models you can buy these days, sporting a 4.4 star rating from over 1500 customers. For a limited time, if you buy it from Amazon, you can tack on a 16x4 DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem for just $10 extra. Modems this fast typically sell for around $60-$100, so even if you don’t need it, you would have no trouble selling it for significantly more than $10.

While this Harman Kardon 5.1 surround sound speaker system isn’t as turnkey as a VIZIO 5.1 sound bar system—you’ll need to run a lot more wires, and buy a receiver as well—it should sound fantastic, and will give you much better separation on the front channels. Today’s deal on eBay is $50 less than Amazon, where the set carries a 4.4 star review average.

If you feel like your iPhone 6 or 6s isn’t sufficiently protected, Anker’s discounting a few popular cases to just $5 or $7 today, depending on whether or not you want a glass screen protector. Just pick your favorite below, and be sure to note the appropriate promo code.

Bonus: Just need to guard your screen? Here’s a three-pack of tempered glass screen protectors for $7.

The Kryptonite Kryptolok Series 2 bike lock comes bearing a 4.2 star review average from over 1,700 Amazon customers, and a Sweethome recommendation for good measure, and you can grab one today from BuyDig for $30, within a dollar of the best price we’ve ever seen. Just use promo code BIKEMORE at checkout to get the deal.

Anker’s PowerLine Lightning cables won our recent Kinja Co-Op, but did you know there’s a microUSB version too? For a limited time, $8 gets you a four-pack of travel-friendly 1' cables; just use promo code XH52F6XP at checkout to get the deal.

Need some Lightning cables too? Anker’s standard (not PowerLine) 3' cables are on sale for $6 each with code VY4252RH. The deal is valid on blue, green, pink, and yellow.

Sporting a lower price and a built-in touchscreen, the GoPro Hero4 Silver might actually a better choice than the Hero4 Black for most consumers. Today on GoPro’s eBay storefront, you can get a refurb for just $244, the best price we’ve seen. And since you’re purchasing it direct from GoPro, it’ll still be backed by a one year warranty.

Have a ping pong table, but no friends to play with? Here’s your solution. Just be sure to clip the 10% coupon.

Running shoes for a reasonable price are usually one of two things. They’re either terribly quality or a ridiculous colorway. These Asics GEL-Excite 3 Running Shoes are neither, and they’re only $30 on Ebay right now. Both the men’s and women’s style is listed at that price. Plus, these were voted as one of the best women’s running shoes by readers.

Hair tools can sometimes get out of control, both when using them and just when storing them (I don’t even want you to look at the bin under my sink). As someone who values their space and time, the InStyler is a gift from the lazy-girl gods. Right now all InStyler tools are at their lowest price ever on Amazon. You’ve probably seen the ads for it everywhere, but these things actually work and work well. Today should be the day you finally check one out.

Update: This deal is available again, but with a backorder.

Iced coffee is a brilliant way to sell people ice for the price of coffee (which is mostly water to begin with). Cold brew on the other hand is a different process that results in less acidity, among other benefits, and you can do it yourself at home with this $15 Takeya. You guys have bought a lot of these at around $19-$20, but today’s deal is the best Amazon’s ever listed.

For a limited time, Amazon is selling several Deadpool and Gambit comic collections on Kindle for just $4 each. These collections contain as many as 15 issues each, and can be read on essentially any tablet or laptop via the Kindle app.

Uniqlo is kind of known for their Heattech and AIRism lines, and right now you can get select AIRism styles for $8 but practically every AIRism style is on sale. With the way this summer is shaping up to be, you may need all the help you can get staying cool.

Update: Now available for the same price with Prime shipping!

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 $7 (from $8) as an add-on item.

You’ve heard of Automatic’s smart driving assistant, but if $70-$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.

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 QNL6CMJR. 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.

If you own a home theater PC, or just occasionally plug your laptop into your TV to watch videos, this wireless keyboard/trackpad combo is an ideal way to control it from across the room. It even seems to work with some smart TVs, but check the Amazon reviews for your specific model to be sure.

Canon’s imageCLASS laser printers aren’t as ubiquitous as Brother’s, but they’re still way better than most Inkjet alternatives, even if they can’t print in color.

Today only, Amazon’s offering up the imageCLASS LBP6030w plus a full-sized toner cartridge for $100 as part of a Gold Box deal. The printer alone currently sells for $80, but the 1600 page toner cartridge goes for over $60, so this is still a solid investment if the printer has all of the features you need.

Now, many of you are surely aware that Brother toner cartridges have higher yields, and aren’t nearly as expensive, and that’s true enough. However, Canon’s system combines the toner and the drum into a single unit, whereas you’ll need to pay somewhere in the neighborhood of $70-$80 for a new drum every ~12,000 pages with Brother. It’s likely that many home users would never even come close to 12,000 pages before replacing the printer entirely, so it’s tough to say which system provides better long term value, but just know that toner cartridge prices aren’t entirely comparable.

Have a Sam’s Club in your area, and don’t mind buying in bulk? You can get a 1-year membership (a $45 value), a complimentary spouse or household membership, a $10 gift card, and $100 is special coupons all for just $25 today, courtesy of Living Social. Even if you didn’t use the gift card or the coupons, that’s still a great deal on the membership alone.

Update: Sold out

$18 for a Cree LED flashlight with a rechargeable battery would be a good deal on its face, but this model from DBPOWER is also waterproof, includes a glass-breaking hammer and seatbelt cutter, and can be used as a 10,400mAh USB power bank in a pinch. That’s quite a package.

If you need a capable media editing suite for consumer-grade needs, Amazon will sell you a copy of Photoshop Elements 14 and Premiere Elements 14 for $75 today, as either a download or a disc. That combo usually costs over $100, and unlike Adobe Creative Cloud, comes with no monthly fees.

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.

We’ve seen a lot of deals on Bluetooth car receivers, but I don’t think any of them have looked as nice as this model from Aukey. It even lets you pair two phones at once, and comes with a three-port USB charger to keep all of your devices charged as well. Just note that your car will need an AUX jack for this to work.

This vacuum is about as simple as they come. You won’t find any hoses, detachable hand vacs, or battery packs. That being said, I’ve owned it for years, and absolutely love it. Its suction power is great, I’ve never had to replace any belts, and it’s incredibly light and maneuverable. For a smallish home, you could do a lot worse for $50, the best price Amazon’s ever listed.

If excessive noise (or utter silence) makes it difficult for you to doze off, this $20 white noise machine might be the key to a better night’s sleep. In addition to the standard white noise, you can choose from a variety of natural sounds like “Thunderstorm,” “Brook,” or “Lullaby 2,” and you can even set a timer so it won’t run all night.

Update: Back up to $29

LEGO has come to be dominated by licensed sets with strict instructions and little room for creativity, but you can still buy a big ol’ box of LEGO bricks for $24 on Amazon today, or about $5 less than usual. It doesn’t include Han Solo or a Minecraft creeper, but you will get 484 LEGOs, including 18 wheels and tires, and a large green base plate.

Anker’s kevlar-wrapped Lightning cables arrived on the scene late last year, and quickly became the go-to cable of choice for most of our readers. Now, RAVPower is out with its own version, and you can get a 2-pack (one 3', and one 6' cable) for $13 with code K6VLNE3K.

These cables are brand new, so there aren’t a ton of reviews yet, but RAVPower generally makes very good charging products, so it might be worth taking the plunge.

While buying full games from a console’s digital storefront is rarely the most economical option, it’s often your only choice if you want to download arcade-style games and DLC, so when a deal pops up on gaming gift cards, it’s worth stocking up. For a limited time at Best Buy, when you buy one card for PSN, Xbox Live, Nintendo’s eShop, Steam, or some other, smaller digital storefronts, you can get another card of equal or lesser value for 20% off. You can even mix and match the cards, if you’re platform agnostic.

Travelpro makes your favorite rolling carry-on bags, and the ever-popular Crew 10 Suiter 22" is down to $118 on Amazon today, matching an all-time low.

I own the spinner version of this bag, and absolutely love it. It’s light, sturdy, built with great materials, and includes all of the pockets you need, including a garment section to keep suits and dresses from wrinkling. $118 may seem like a lot to spend on a bag, but if you take good care of it, this should last you for years.

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.

You know when you ask someone to take a picture of you and your family on vacation, and you quickly learn that almost nobody understands how to take a decent photo? With a mini tripod, you can be in total control of those long range selfies, and this $9 model works with everything from DSLRs to smartphones.

Pair it with these smartphone camera lens attachments for even more shooting options.

These solar powered motion sensor lights have proven incredibly popular with our readers over the past year, and you can pick up a pair of jumbo-sized, 20 LED models from MPOW for $31 today.

O’Keefe’s Working Hands is Amazon’s top-selling hand cream, and sports a 4.6 star review average from over 6,000 customers. If you want to see what all the fuss is about, you can pick up two jars for just $9 today.

If you hurry, Amazon’s selling your undisputed favorite travel mug, the Contigo Autoseal West Loop, for as little as $13, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen, and a solid discount from its usual $18-$20. Just be sure to grab one before the deal cools off.

Anker’s PowerCore line is far and away your favorite variety of USB battery packs, and the newest member of the family, the PowerCore 5000, just got its first discount.

5,000mAh is a good size for a battery pack. It’s small enough to fit in your pocket, but it should still net you more than a full phone charge, which should get you through even the most trying days. Obviously, there are good reasons to own a larger pack, but a smallish battery should be in everyone’s arsenal as well. This pack has sold for $20 ever since it was released last month, but for a limited time, you can snag it for $14.
