Top Deals

It’s a little early to be thinking about Thanksgiving, but this Char-Broil turkey fryer bundle is ideal for other cooking projects all year round.

Before we go any further, I should specify that this thing doesn’t use any oil, so it’s not really frying. Instead, it uses propane-powered infrared heaters to completely surround your turkey, chicken, or other meats with heat, resulting in crispy skins, and juicy meat in just 8-10 minutes per pound. And of course, without oil, the resulting meal is healthier, and less likely to burn down your house.

It sounds too good to be true, but over 1,000 Amazon customers have given it a 4.7 star average, and the user-submitted photos look mouthwatering. Just note that this is an early-access Prime Day deal, meaning the price is only available today, and only for Prime members.

If you haven’t checked out the Luxury Beauty section on Amazon, you are missing out. Today is a really great day to bookmark it next to Sephora and Ulta, because if you spend $50 on an Luxury Beauty purchase and use the code PRIMEDAY25, you’ll get $25 back towards your next luxe beauty purchase.

For a limited time, Amazon’s selling the 20 ounce model of your favorite travel mug, the Contigo Autoseal West Loop, for $16, or the 16 ounce model for $13, both among the best prices we’ve seen. These mugs are cupholder-friendly, easy to clean, and will maintain a hot beverage hot for up to five hours, or a cold drink for up to 12.

Note: The deal is available on multiple colors, so be sure to click around to find your favorite.

Bar none, Sport-Brella is the ultimate beach umbrella, and Amazon’s discounting the blue XL model for just $42 today, the best price we’ve seen.

Unlike a regular umbrella, Sport-Brella leans backwards and attaches to the sand with stakes, creating a kind of semi-private cocoon with enough space for a couple of chairs and a cooler. Best of all, it sets up in about five minutes (once you know what you’re doing), and can provide a full day’s worth of privacy and sun protection.

We’ve seen several deals recently on the standard model, but hardly any on the XL, so if you could use the extra foot of space, I’d lock in your order without delay.

If you tend to crash and burn when making baked goods, this smartphone-connected scale can walk you through the process step by step. Just connect your phone or tablet to the kitchen scale, pick your recipe from the free app, and start following instructions. The app will tell you what to add, when to add it, and how much you need; all you need to do is pop the results in the oven, and make sure you get it out at the right time.

Nearly a decade after release, the venerable Xbox 360 controller is still one of the best PC gamepads you can buy, and the wireless model is down to just $21 today on eBay, the best price we’ve seen.

Your DSLR or mirrorless camera takes amazing video, and absolutely worthless audio. Luckily, this Shark hot shoe shotgun mic can fix that for just $25. It won’t be Hollywood-quality sound, but it will be a huge upgrade over the mic built into your camera.

You might not need to use a Dremel all that often, but it’s one of those things everyone should keep in their tool box, if only for sanding wood and carving jack-o-lanterns. Today only as part of a Gold Box deal, Amazon’s discounting the Dremel 2290 3-tool craft kit to an all-time low $79 (from about $100).

Of course, the kit comes with a standard 2-speed Dremel rotary tool, but what makes this collection special are the included extras: A pen-style rotary engraver, and a butane soldering torch. That makes this a great deal for everyone from home improvement projects to arts & crafts. Just note that like all Gold Box deals, this price is only available today, or until sold out.

Whether or not you remove your unwanted hair is one thing; the debate that shaving and/or waxing at home is the worst thing ever is barely a debate at all. The Tria is probably the greatest solution out there for those of us that take hair off and want it to stay that way, without frequenting the waxer so much she can recognize you by your follicles.

The sucky thing about at-home hair removal is it’s incredibly inconvenient (and the fact that contorting yourself in the shower to shave the back of your knee should be an Olympic sport). The Tria, which is $50 off it’s regular price at Sephora, is a pretty great investment for those of us with some fuzz in places we think should be smooth. The amount of money this will save you from going to the salon to get waxed and threaded and all those things, will pay for itself quicker than you can say “Who wears short shorts?”

Today only, Groupon is taking an extra 20% off all local offers with promo code SUMMER20, up to a maximum $50 discount. That includes everything from restaurants to oil changes in the city of your choice.

You can’t control these semi-smart power outlet switches with your phone, or automate them with IFTTT recipes like you can with Belkin’s WeMo line, but you can control them from across your house with a remote control, and they’re incredibly affordable today.

If you’re sick of broken zippers and torn fabric on your luggage, Samsonite’s S’Cure 28" spinner might be the answer.

Featuring an integrated latch and TSA-approved lock, the S’Cure is basically 100% polycarbonate, meaning there’s no fabric, and no zipper. It sells for $165 on Amazon, with fantastic user reviews, but you can pick one up from BuyDig for an all-time low $143 right now with promo code TRAVEL10.

Spend just $6 today, and you’ll never have to fish a cable out from behind your desk again. Now that’s what I call a deal.

As far as metal detectors go, this model from Barska doesn’t have a lot of bells and whistles, but at $50, it might be worth picking up if you’re curious about the hobby. Plus, if you get really good, it’ll pay for itself!

If you have any camping trips on the horizon, this foldable camping stove and cookware set is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. Note: Don’t operate this while holding it in the palm of your hand.

Blendtec is the brand that brought you those viral “Will It Blend” videos, and yeah, their blenders are really good. Prime members can grab a one today for $280 as part of a Prime Day early access deal. That’s about $120 less than usual, and the best price we’ve ever seen on a new Blendtec.

Even at times when you don’t need any extra USB ports, this Inateck hub earns its spot on your desk with a built-in phone and tablet stand. Plus, its brushed aluminum finish will look great with your brushed aluminum MacBook.

If the perfect chambray shirt existed...wait no, it definitely does. The Slim Fit Chambray from J.Crew Factory is everything you want and need in a chambray. Cotton, lightweight, washable, not too-blue. And when it’s on sale (with an extra 50% off using the code CLEARIT), you buy a few of them just in case.

Packing cubes can make organizing clothes and toiletries for your next trip a little less hellish, and this highly-rated set of four from eBags is only $20 today. That’s $15 less than Amazon’s current price, and the best deal we’ve ever seen.

Whether your devices use USB-C or microUSB, today’s a great day to stock up on charging cables.

Bonus: Plug them all into this 10-port (!!) charger.

RAVPower (and its sub-brand, TaoTronics) makes some of the most popular USB charging gear and inexpensive audio gadgets this side of Anker, and a whole bunch of it is on sale in today’s Amazon Prime Day early access deal.

If your PlayStation Plus subscription or Xbox Live Gold membership is getting close to its expiration date, or (gasp) you just don’t have one at all, you can grab a 12 month membership to either today for $40.

You don’t need a yard, or even any gardening skills to grow your own food at home; you just need a Miracle-Gro’s Aerogarden. These fully-integrated, soil-free indoor gardens can grow herbs, vegetables, and salad greens up to five times faster than regular soil, and the massive Bounty model is on sale today for $200 for Prime members, one of the best prices we’ve seen.

There are many less expensive AeroGardens in the lineup, but the Bounty is the only one with a touchscreen, and the only model that can hold nine seed pods at once.

If you weren’t excited for Prime Day yet, this might pique your interest. Amazon Rewards Visa holders can save $30 on any $150 purchase (shipped and sold by Amazon, and excluding gift cards) next Tuesday with promo code VISA30, whether the items are part of a Prime Day sale or not.

So if you have any big ticket items you’ve been meaning to buy, this is a great opportunity to save an extra $30 without doing any extra work. If you don’t have the Rewards Visa, you can apply for it this week, and it’ll be added to your account automatically upon approval.

Note that this promotion is only available with the Amazon Rewards Visa, not the 5% back Amazon Store Card. Normally, that’s the better card for heavy Amazon shoppers, but you’ll need the Visa to take advantage of the Prime Day discount.

If you’ve got the space for it, this feature-packed ProForm treadmill is marked down to $658 on Amazon today. That’s the best price ever listed, and a great deal for any treadmill that inclines up to 12%, and includes 22 built-in workouts, a space-saving fold-up design, and a lifetime frame and motor warranty.

As the sun sets on Steam’s Summer Sale, it rises on Microsoft’s. Xbox One, Xbox 360, and and Windows PC owners can take advantage of dozens of digital deals on each platform, with extra savings available for Xbox Live Gold members. Let us know what you picked up in the comments!

Just because you’re outdoors and/or floating on a body of water doesn’t mean you can’t have something comfortable to sit on. This $45 inflatable blob might stretch the definition of “couch,” but it certainly beats sitting in the dirt.

I’m not surprised Anker made a flashlight. I am surprised it uses three AAA batteries (or a single, rechargeable 18650 battery) instead of a built-in rechargeable battery pack. But if that doesn’t turn you off, it does include CREE LED bulbs, three lighting modes, and IP65 water and dust resistance. Not bad for $10.

VIZIO’s M-series of 4K TVs dominated the holiday shopping season in 2015, but if you held out this long, you can save big on some remaining stock on the 60" model. That comes complete with local dimming, smart apps, and a well-reviewed upscaling engine for 1080p content.

It’s no secret that Aukey’s magnetic smartphone vent mount has been a hit over the last year, and you can try one out for just $7 today.

If you don’t use a case, and thus can’t keep a magnetic plate on the back of your phone, here’s a vent-mounted cradle for the same price.

Your pets will never be thirsty with this 128oz. PetSafe water dispenser. You’ll have to wait out a backorder, but today’s $10 price is an all-time low, and only about half what Amazon usually charges.

There are widescreen monitors, and then there are widescreen monitors. This is the latter.

$12 for a Qi charging pad with an included 2A wall charger is a great deal from any manufacturer, let alone Samsung.

Summer isn’t kind to your wiper blades, so if you’ve been struggling to see the road through streaks on your windshield, Amazon’s offering up a pair of Bosch Insight Blades for just $22 right now. Just pick the two you need, add them to your cart, and the discount should appear automatically. The deal even allows you to mix and match sizes, so you can almost certainly find a combination that will work for your car.

Note: The discount will only work on blades shipped and sold by Amazon directly. No third party sellers.

Amazon’s free Prime Pantry shipping promotion seems to be a permanent fixture at this point, but each month brings a new slate of eligible items, and July’s have just been revealed.

As always, just add five of the items on this page to your Prime Pantry box, enter code PANTRYJUL at checkout, and the $6 shipping charge will be waived. Plus, if you happen to have a free Pantry shipping credit from accepting no rush shipping on a previous Amazon order, it should stack, granting you an additional $6 discount.

There are literally hundreds of products available for the promotion, so you should have no trouble finding five that you need.
