Top Deals

Gizmodo EIC Annalee Newitz recently waxed poetic about her new Android-compatible flash drive, and we've found a terrific deal today on a similar item. It still has a microUSB connector opposite the standard USB, but it's even smaller than the Corsair she wrote about, and cheaper too. So why would you want one of these things?

The awesome part is that it has a micro USB connector on one side, and USB 3.0 on the other. Perfect for moving all the pictures and vids from my phone to another machine. I always carry a spare flash drive with me, and this was a big upgrade — mostly because I'm sick of uploading files from my phone to Dropbox or Drive in order to get them onto my laptop. I want to save things locally, not pass them through somebody else's server farm.

I'd also add that these are great for storing movies and other media for long trips, especially if your phone or tablet is running low on storage. But whatever your motivations, we don't know how long this deal is set to last, so grab one while you can. There are also smaller capacities available at lower prices.

You just named Burt's Bees your favorite lip balm by a wide margin, and now Amazon is taking an extra 20% off the rest of their products when you buy three.

Unfortunately, their standard lip balm isn't included in the promotion, but you can choose from a variety of salves, lotions, soaps, sunscreens, wipes, and more. Just add any three included items to your cart, and you'll get an automatic 20% discount at checkout. [Burt's Bees Promotion]

Steaming is one of the easiest ways to cook vegetables, seafood, and certain meats, and this T-Fal two-tier steamer makes it incredibly easy. It boasts a 4.4 star review average, and has never been cheaper on Amazon, so you can buy with confidence. Now if you'll excuse me, I have some dumplings to make. [T-fal VC1338 Balanced Living Compact 2-Tier Electric Food Steamer, 4-Quart, $29]

That's not the only T-Fal deal on Amazon though. This 10" ceramic nonstick skillet is only $13, if you're willing to wait out a backorder. While I don't recommend using nonstick for everything, it's good to keep one handy for eggs and a few other situations. [T-fal C92105 Initiatives Ceramic Nonstick Fry Pan, 10-Inch, $13]

Amazon's knocked the #1-selling Hoover T-Series upright vacuum down to $78 today, an all-time low. It's not as futuristic looking as a Dyson, but that's a fantastic price for a bagless upright with retractable cord, folding handle, and extension wand. [Hoover T-Series Vacuum, $78]

The Moto G with LTE is one of the best bargains in mobile at its usual $220 price, but today only, Amazon's knocking that down to $160.

So what's $160 get you? A lot, actually!

  • 4.5" 720p display
  • Quad-core Qualcomm CPU
  • 1.3 MP front-facing camera and a 5 MP rear-facing camera
  • 8GB of storage with a MicroSD card slot for more
  • LTE and HSPA+ for compatibility with AT&T, T-Mobile, and most international carriers
  • Android 4.4, with a promised update to Lollipop in the works

This is a Gold Box deal, so this price is only available today, or until sold out. [Unlocked Moto G LTE, $160]

We've had a handful of deals on these LED night lights lately, but they always prove to be extremely popular. Today's offer is for a free stick-anywhere touch-activated light when you purchase an outdoor solar-powered motion sensing model. I have the touch light underneath my kitchen cabinets, and it works great.

If you aren't enamored with the current state of smart watches, but find the idea of notifications on your wrist appealing, the Pebble Steel is a great gateway drug. It doesn't have the flashy animations and rich features of Android Wear or the Apple Watch, but it looks great, and can last for a week or more on a single charge.

If your car has an AUX jack, but no Bluetooth, this $20 adapter has everything you need to stream phone calls and music wirelessly. We've posted several of these deals over the past few months, but $20 is one of the best prices we've ever seen. [TaoTronics Bluetooth 4.0 Receiver Hands-Free Car Kit, $20 with code EMAH3G3N]

Update: Promo code is expired, but they dropped the price from $3o to $25. Not quite as good as $20, but not bad.

I've always said that when it comes to external USB battery packs, you should have a big one for long trips, and a pocket-sized one for carrying with you everywhere. Today on Amazon, if you buy the a 10,000mAh charger from OLALA, you can get their smaller 3,000mAh model for free.

HTC's RE action cam is a weird little periscope that takes really solid footage. But despite its waterproof body, hand-sensing power-on function, and 146 degree field of view, it was a tough sell at its $200 debut price in the world of GoPro. But at $100, you could do a lot worse for a little action cam. [HTC - RE 16.0-Megapixel Waterproof Digital Camera, $100]

This 12-outlet Belkin surge protector is extremely popular, judging by its nearly 3,000 user reviews, and Amazon has marked it down to $22 today, which is about $3-$10 below its usual price, and within $2 of its all time low.

In addition to 4320 joules of protection and coaxial and ethernet inputs, the best feature here is definitely its eight individually-swiveling outlets. These are great for routing cables in the thin spaces behind a cabinet, and can also create space for those annoying power bricks. [Belkin 12-Outlet Surge Protector, $22]

Between fitness-tracking apps, step counting, and music, your iPhone is the ultimate fitness companion, and this armband makes it easy to take with you anywhere.

There are a lot of these types of products on the market, but this one includes a small pouch to hold a house key, which is a nice touch. The $8 price doesn't hurt either. [ Mpow Running Sport Sweatproof Armband Case + Key Holder for iPhone 6, $8 with code OALMHKKC]

We see our fair share of $30-$35 Bluetooth speakers, but I'm pretty sure I've never seen one that looked this good. [ Belkin Fusive Portable Bluetooth Speaker, $33]

$50 is about as cheap as 1TB external drives get, particularly for well-reviewed models like this one. [WD Elements 1TB External Hard Drive, $50]

If you own an Android device, you'll definitely want to check out Amazon's Appstore today, where you'll find 34 premium Android apps and games worth $105 available completely free.

On the game side of things, highlights include Five Nights at Freddy's 2, Cut The Rope, and World of Goo, but the sale is full of useful apps as well, including Servers Ultimate Pro, EasyTether, and NeoCal Advanced Calculator. But that's really just scraping the surface, so be sure to check out the full list.

If you're new to the Amazon Appstore, getting started is as simple as installing the Amazon App, so you don't have any excuse to miss out here. [Amazon Appstore Sale]
