Top Deals

Amazon’s running several back-to-school themed Gold Box deals today, but one of the most intriguing bundles a bunch of popular computer accessories from several of your favorite manufacturers.

Inside, you’ll find the likes of the Razer DeathAdder Chroma (one of your favorite gaming mice), the Logitech Performance Mouse MX (one of your favorite general computing mice), a NETGEAR Nighthawk router, a SwissGear messenger bag, and a whole lot more.

Just note that like all Gold Box deals, these prices are only available today, and the best stuff could sell out early.

Amazon is having a sale on a crazy amount of luggage, backpacks and more for the whole family, including your top pick for the best carry-on luggage: The TravelPro Maxlight3 (The International Carry-On is somehow marked down to only $50). So, if you’ve been using that duffel bag since college and you have a flight to catch soon, you should get on this one.

Update: The Travelpro Maxlite 3 has already sold out, but there are still lots of good bags in there.

Little Giant Ladders are some of the most popular on the market, and you can get a 17' model with a wall rack for for $180 on Groupon today. We’ve seen the bare ladder a little cheaper in the past, but the wall rack makes this deal particularly enticing.

There’s also a 22' ladder without a rack on sale for $210 on the same page. That’s a decent deal, but not nearly as good.

If you take racing games (or Rocket League) seriously, the popular Logitech G29 (PS4/PS3/PC) and G920 (Xbox One/PC) racing wheels are down to around $240 today. That’s around $50 less than usual, and easily an all-time low price in both cases.

Adobe’s Photoshop and Lightroom Creative Cloud photography suite normally costs $10 per month, but Amazon’s currently discounting a 12-month plan to just $95. Creative Cloud plans don’t go on sale often, so if you’re a creative professional, or just want to make your own photos look better, this is a great opportunity to save on industry standard software.

Rare is the apartment kitchen that includes enough storage and counter space, but you can add your own with this attractive Whitmor baker’s rack for just $59 from Amazon, down from its usual $75.

That includes stainless steel shelves and hanging hooks, a removable butcher block cutting surface, and a 10 year limited warranty.

When it comes to smartphone dash mounts, magnetic solutions have dominated the sales charts over the last year or so. But if you don’t want to obstruct a vent, or use a case with your phone, a these deals might bring you back into the suction cup camp.

First up, iOttie’s One Touch 2 universal dash mount is marked down to $13, matching an all-time low. The original One Touch won a Kinja Co-op a few years back, and the sequel added a longer telescoping arm, as well as a bigger cradle for today’s skateboard-sized phones.

And if you’ve got $36 to spare, and hate plugging and unplugging a power cord every time you get in the car, the iOttie One Touch Wireless is also marked down to an all-time low price today. This thing is basically just a One Touch 2, but with a Qi charger built right in for hassle-free charging. That’s no use for iPhone owners, but if you own a modern Android phone, I’d say it’s well worth the price premium.

Though iOttie is mostly known for its suction cup-based mounts, this Gold Box also includes a CD slot and vent mount as well, if that’s more your style.

The TiVo for cord cutters comes with lifetime service and a 1TB hard drive, and Amazon’s offering the first deal we’ve ever seen on it today.

Note: This was on sale last week for $372, but now, it’s eve cheaper.

The original Roamio OTA sold for $50 with a 500GB hard drive, but you had to pay $15 per month for the TiVo service. The new model though comes with 1TB of space, and usually retails for $400 upfront, with lifetime service. Assuming you’ll use it for more than a couple years, that’s a good deal on its face, but Amazon’s taking an extra $28 off the sticker price right now, while supplies last.

Just note that this model is not compatible with cable services; it’s designed specifically for use with an OTA antenna, such as the top-selling Mohu Leaf.

Uniqlo’s AIRism is one of those lines that people continue to go back to. The boxer briefs always sell out quickly when there’s a sale, and even your favorite undershirt is part of the AIRism line. And right now, Uniqlo is marking down select AIRism products for under $10. Grab new underwear for only $6 or a new tank top for $8. The world is your cool, breathable oyster.

$50 is about as cheap as 1TB external drives ever get these days, so if you need more space for your files, or if (gasp) you haven’t been doing regular backups, this is a great price.

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 for just $100 today, one of the best prices we’ve seen.

We’ve seen several deals lately on RFID-blocking front pocket wallets, but if none of them have been quite what you’re looking for, maybe this one will fit the bill. It’s leather, it can hold at least six cards, an ID, and some cash, and it’s only $7 today with code 5TEE8S7P.

This Amazon Gold Box is marketed as a back to school sale, but if you like Lärabars, Nature Valley products, Annie’s Snacks, or Fiber One, there’s no reason not to stock up for yourself. Just be sure to lock in your order before they’re all gobbled up.

This hard-sided headphone case is designed to fit popular cans like Audio Technica’s ATH-M50x, certain models of Beats, Sony’s MDRs and more. Assuming you spent $100 or more on your headphones, I’d say it’s definitely worth $20 to keep them safe in your bag. Other than a very brief $10 deal, this is the best price we’ve ever seen.

The new Apple TV is good, and getting better, and Walmart is taking $20 off the 32GB and 64GB models. We’ve seen a few better deals in the past, but this is still a solid discount as far as Apple products go.

Use your savings to pick up a discounted iTunes gift card.

Because drinking the whole bottle isn’t always an option, this $7 vacuum sealer can keep your wine fresher for longer.

Just insert one of the two included stoppers, place the hand pump on top, and pump until you hear a click. The system removes all of the excess oxygen from the bottle, slowing down the oxidation process that makes old wine taste sour. Does it actually work? Over 1,300 5-star reviews and an Amazon top-seller badge speak volumes, and if it saves even half a bottle of nice wine that would have otherwise gone to waste, it’ll have paid for itself.

Jackery’s newest battery packs include Quick Charge 3.0, and they’re offering $8 discounts on both the 10,050mAh and 20,100mAh varieties today. Just pick your favorite size, and note the promo codes.

We’re no strangers to waterproof Bluetooth speakers, but most of them under $30 are 3W or 5W single-driver affairs. If you want something a little louder to hear over the din of your shower or from across the pool deck, Jackery’s new 10W Boom is only $29 today with code JKRYBOOM, or $30 with an included bike mount.

Uniqlo’s Ultra Light Down technology is probably just barely second in popularity behind their AIRism/HEATTECH lines. Come October, most of the jackets and coats are gone and you’re stuck wishing you stocked up now. Well, here’s your chance to be prepared and to save money because their Women’s Ultra Light Down Jacket is $20 off. Or if a vest is more your speed, the Ultra Light down Vest is also down $20. - Jillian

Two-packs of shoes always intrigue me, but when they’re on sale for only $21, it’s kind of hard to pass up. Grab two pairs of espadrilles from ASOS in white and striped and you’re set for the rest of the summer. - Jillian

Our readers love Logitech’s MX series of mice, and the versatile Anywhere Mouse MX 2 is down to its lowest price ever today.

We’ve posted a lot of deals over the years on the original Anywhere Mouse, but the second generation adds a rechargeable battery and (optional) Bluetooth to the mix, which are two huge reasons to upgrade. And of course, it still includes Logitech’s dark field laser sensor, which means it can be used on any surface, including glass.

Today’s $50 price tag is a match for the best we’ve ever seen, so click over to eBay and lock in your order.

Get the best pricing ever on the Weekender and three other Timex watches, coupled with beautiful leather straps from FormFunctionForm with our exclusive discount. Use code TIMEX20 for $20 off.

The Timex Weekender is the most popular watch we’ve ever listed, and the one I’ve worn most days since 2014. The Weekender and leather strap pair well with the full range of casual clothing options, and are comfortable and easy to adjust for just the right fit.

Our discount also applies to other Timex options matched with straps, with pricing as follows:

  • Weekender: $68
  • Lady’s Timex Weekender: $68
  • Expedition: $78
  • Fairfield: $78
  • Chronograph: $100

To give some pricing context, the Weekender without the strap can fall to around the $30 range when discounted on Amazon, while the pairing currently goes for $108 at FormFunctionForm and $88 on Huckberry before our discount.

If you don’t want to dedicate a watermelon-sized chunk of fridge space to a Brita pitcher, this easy-to-install faucet attachment is just $16 on Amazon today, an all-time low.

The Brita on Tap can filter up to 100 gallons of water per filter, and at roughly $10 each, that comes out to just over $.01 per 16 ounce bottle of lead, asbestos, and sediment-free water.

If you still listen to music, or any sounds really, through your computer’s built-in speakers, it’s time for an intervention. The Logitech Z623 speaker set was one of Lifehacker readers’ five favorite computer audio systems, and it’s within $10 of its all-time low price today.

Sugru is right up there with binder clips and the Raspberry Pi in Lifehacker’s pantheon of must-have gear, and you can stock up today with eight packs from Amazon for just $13, the best price we’ve ever seen on the stuff.

iTunes gift card discounts are noticeably less common than they used to be, and while we do see 20% discounts from time to time, a $100 iTunes gift card for $85 is still a solid deal if you pay for Apple Music, iCloud storage, or PokéCoins.

Lightning cable deals are nothing new, but if you could use a spare or two, they’re just $4 each from Mpow today.

Use this link and code IHKTA559 if you just want one.

And if you want two, use this link and code HZ4AQL26.

Want a mechanical keyboard, but don’t need (or want) a number pad? This tenkeyless CM Storm QuickFire has your name on it for just $67 today. And while it’s technically listed as a gaming keyboard, its understated design and relatively quiet Cherry MX Brown switches make it appropriate for office use as well.

If that’s a little more than you’re looking to spend, this $30 alternative uses off-brand Blue switches, which should be extremely loud and clicky.

It might not be mission-critical equipment for your home, but a good label maker is a nice gadget to keep around, and the popular DYMO LabelManager 160 is back in stock for just $10 today, matching an all-time low.

If you remember the old label makers that literally pressed the letters into a piece of tape, this is a bit more advanced than what you’re picturing. The Dymo LabelManager 160 can print in eight fonts at six sizes, along with clipart and special characters, and you can even preview the entire label on its LCD screen before you print.

We’ve seen this deal a couple times in the last few weeks, but it always sells out quickly, so act fast.

Amazon just rolled out a few new back-to-school device sales, including $15 off the Amazon Tap, and $20 off the Kindle and Kindle Paperwhite.

And in case you missed it earlier, a the Amazon Fire HD 6 is still $30 off.

Range extenders can’t work miracles, but if there’s one corner of your home that struggles to get a good Wi-Fi connection, this $30 gadget might be all you need.

Packing cubes can make organizing clothes and toiletries for your next trip a little less hellish, and this highly-rated set of four from AmazonBasics is only $20 today. That’s about $5 less than usual, and an all-time low. I actually own a set of these, and I absolutely love them.

Anker’s kevlar-wrapped PowerLine cables have been an immediate hit with our readers, and you can upgrade your entire microUSB cable collection today with this $11 5-pack.

Want wireless streaming and handsfree calling in your older car? This $21 dongle receives the Bluetooth signal from your phone (or music files from flash drives and microSD cards), and transmits it to the FM radio station of your choice.

We’ve seen several deals on Bluetooth car kits in the past, but most require that your car include an AUX jack, whereas this only needs a working FM radio.
