If you’ve never seen a Zoku popsicle mold in action, it can only be described as delicious black magic. Just pop in a stick, pour in your favorite beverages and fruit slices, and within 7 minutes you’ll have a popsicle. Today’s deal is the lowest price we’ve ever seen on the three-mold model. [Zoku Quick Pop Maker, $42]

Anker makes some of the most highly-rated Lightning cables on the market, and you can score a 3’ model for just $6 today, an all-time low. [Anker Lightning Cable, $6 with code APYLLVJN]

Update: Code has expired, but you can still get the cable for $8, which isn’t bad. Or, here’s two for $15.

For a limited time, if you purchase a Google Chromecast for $30 from Amazon (which is actually $5 off MSRP), you’ll get a free $10 Amazon gift card tossed in for your trouble. If you have any TVs left in your home without a streaming box of some sort attached, this is a no-brainer. [Google Chromecast + $10 Amazon Gift Card, $30]

Update: Sold out

We’ve seen a lot of deals on these waterproof smartphone bags lately, but this one includes both an armband for exercise, and a passthrough headphone jack so you can still listen to music while you’re at the beach or going for a run. [FRiEQ Universal Waterproof Case Bag with External Earphone Jack, $13 with code ZJ8LUEEW]

Samsung’s 850 EVO SSD is the most popular SSD on the market, and the beefy 1TB model is down to an unprecedented $310 right now. [Samsung 850 EVO 1TB 2.5-Inch SATA III Internal SSD, $310]

Logitech is currently offering a $20 off vouchers in celebration of back to school season, and you don’t even need a .edu email address to get it. Just head over here to claim your unique code, and then apply it to any order on their site of $49 or more.

It should go without saying, but be sure to double check at least Amazon before you buy, as there’s a decent chance they’ll have a better price, even with the coupon code. You’ll also have to pay shipping on some of these orders, starting at around $6. That being said, here are a few safe bets:

[Logitech Back to School Sale]

Whether your current mouse is giving you chronic wrist pain, or you just want to try something different, this 4.3 star rated ergonomic vertical mouse is only $11 today. They call it a gaming mouse, probably due to its adjustable DPI, but it should work just fine for general computing. [Etekcity Scroll Endurance Optical USB Wired Ergonomic Vertical Mouse, $11 with code ETEK1234]

Let’s clear up the obvious confusion with this deal before we start: It’s a 2-pack of 2-packs! So you’ll be getting four lights total. Okay, so...

Today on Amazon, you can get two 2-packs of OxyLED outdoor stair lights for just $16, an all-time low. You just mount these outside your house, let them recharge during the day via built-in solar panels, and they’ll illuminate your patio or stoop all night. You might not need four for yourself, but the extra 2-pack would make for a nice evergreen gift. [2x 2-Pack OxyLED Outdoor Stainless Steel LED Solar Step Light, $16. Add two to cart and use code 50PFSL05]

You’re probably most familiar with the iRobot’s Roomba vacuums, but if your house has a lot of tile, laminate, or hardwood, the Braava is the same concept, applied to a mop. We’ve never seen it cheaper. [iRobot Braava 320 Floor Mopping Robot, $105]

Today’s Amazon Gold Box features a 2-pack of highly rated Sonicare EasyClean toothbrushes for $100, or $26 less than buying both separately. The brushes deliver 31,000 brush strokes per minute, and include a 30 second interval timer so you’re sure to give equal attention to each part of your mouth. [Philips Sonicare HX6552/75 Easy Clean Electric Toothbrush 2 Pack, $100]

Panasonic’s face, ear and nose hair trimmer is one of the most popular items we’ve ever posted, and a no-brainer addition to everyone’s bathroom arsenal. It’s priced at $11 today, which is very close to an all-time low price. [Panasonic ER-GN30-K Nose, Ear n Facial Hair Trimmer Wet/Dry with Vortex Cleaning System, $11]

This clever light switch has a screen built right in, giving you the ability to program its connected light and fan on a seven day schedule. It won’t connect to your smartphone like a lot of smart home gear, but it looks great, and is affordable at just $32. [Honeywell Econoswitch 7-Day Solar Time Table Programmable Light Switch, $32]

It’s not a cash discount, but this is still one of the best PS4 bundle deals we’ve seen. [PS4 + The Last of Us + Temple of Osiris + Turtle Beach Headset + 3 Months PlayStation Plus, $400]

You guys have purchased truckloads of USB charging hubs, and of the most popular models comes with a free 5-pack of microUSB cables today. Just add both to your cart, and use code 8H43ATGW at checkout.

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.

Lifehacker readers voted the Mohu Leaf as their favorite antenna, praising its unobtrusive design and great performance, and Mohu is offering the amplified Leaf 50 model for an unheard of $30 today (with code SUPER25), as long as you don’t mind getting an open box model. That’s less than the price of the standard Leaf, which doesn’t include a USB-powered amplifier to pull in weaker signals. [Mohu Leaf 50, $30 with code SUPER25]

Note: The product page lists a promo code to get free shipping, but just ignore it. Free shipping will be an option with code SUPER25.

The powerful This War of Mine always seemed well suited to mobile devices, and you can save $5 on your Android copy today, courtesy of Amazon. [This War of Mine, $10]

If you’re excited for Fallout 4—and I know a lot of you are—you can preorder its official 184 page art book on Amazon today for $26. That’s $7 less than the previous low price, and if it drops any lower prior to release, you’ll automatically get the deal. [Preorder The Art of Fallout 4: Bethesda Softworks, $26]

And remember, you can still preorder the Vault Dweller’s Survival Guide for $24. [Preorder Fallout 4 Vault Dweller’s Survival Guide Collector’s Edition, $24]

Mpow’s Swift Bluetooth Headphones are one of the most popular items we’ve ever posted, but the biggest complaint we hear is that they don’t fit everyone’s ears particularly well. Their newer Cheetah model aims to address that with a wraparound design, and you can try a pair yourself for just $25 today, matching an all-time low. [Mpow Cheetah Bluetooth 4.1 Headphones, $25 with code ST2YTLVM. Blue and green only]

GoPro’s lilliputian Hero4 Session only came out a few weeks ago, but we’ve already spotted our first deal.

Rakuten has the shooter marked down to $370 right now, or $30 off. Granted, that’s not a huge discount, and I suspect we’ll see better deals in the coming months, but if you’ve been waiting for a price drop to pull the trigger, this is your first opportunity. [GoPro Hero4 Session, $370]

If you like to air dry some or all of your laundry, this silly-but-genius $7 contraption clips onto your shower rod, and can hold 26 items at one. I ordered one. [Whitmor Clip and Drip Garment Hanger with 26 Clips, $7]
