We’ve seen car chargers with more ports and more power, but this one is so small, it’ll look like it’s built into your car. [Aukey Dual-Port Car Charger, $6 with code WZE6JCXG]

Fitness trackers can help you ward off holiday weight gain, but if you don’t want to commit to wearing a bracelet every day, the clip-on Fitbit One is is a great alternative.

In addition to steps, the Fitbit One will monitor calories burned, stairs climbed, and distance traveled, and you can even configure it as a silent, vibrating alarm clock so you don’t have to disturb your sleeping partner. If that sounds like an appealing package, Amazon will sell you one for $75 today, which is an all-time low. Even if you don’t need it yourself, this is an easy gift idea to check off your list before Black Friday madness. [Fitbit One Wireless Activity Plus Sleep Tracker, $75]

If you’re ready to outfit your rig with ultra-fast solid state storage, or you just want to build a better external drive, these OCZ SSDs are down to all-time low prices today on Amazon.

Bonus: Mushkin Enhanced Reactor 2.5” 1TB SATA III Internal SSD, $250

$7 isn’t a bad price for a Lightning cable, but today, you can add a 3-port USB car charger for just $1 extra. Just add both to your cart, and apply the promo code at checkout. [Lumsing Lightning Cable and Lumsing 3-Port USB Car Charger, $8 with code I7JQVJCD]

Audio Technica’s venerable ATH-M50x took home the crown in a recent Kinja Co-Op for best headphones, and BuyDig will sell you a pair for $115 today in black or white. [Audio Technica ATH-M50X Headphones, $115 with code PROAUDIO. Also in white]

If you’re planning a holiday trip, this discounted gift card can save you $30 on your stay at any Hyatt brand hotel. That’ll be enough for a couple bottles of water from the mini bar! [$200 Hyatt Gift Card, $170]

Update: I got a note from Nomad PR explaining that this is only valid on in-store purchases with paper receipts. Sorry for the confusion. It’s also only available in the US.

Nomad, purveyor of fine mobile accessories like these keychain charging cables, just got their products into Best Buy, and they’re celebrating with a pretty awesome giveaway.

All you have to do is buy one Nomad product from Best Buy, email your receipt and shipping address to, and you’ll receive a FREE NomadPlus in the mail. The NomadPlus is a clever little gadget that integrates with Apple’s standard iPhone charging brick, and turns it into a portable battery pack. Its regular $40 asking price is kind of insane, but I’d happily take one for free. [FREE NomadPlus With Purchase Of Any Nomad Product from Best Buy]

It’s time to pack up all of your summer gear, and you can save space by storing it all in these vacuum-packed bags. Just pack them up, attach a vacuum cleaner hose, and watch them shrink by up to 75%. [VonHaus Vacuum Storage Bags - 12 Pack of Assorted Sizes, $14 with code CNXY8ZRT]

Today only, Amazon’s offering big savings on a variety of cookware sets. Most of them are nonstick, which I’m not personally a huge fan of, but it’s tough to argue with prices as low as $50 for a 12-piece set. [Amazon Cookware Gold Box]

I used to chop garlic by hand, and I think deep down, I was hoping I’d cut my finger off just so I’d have an excuse to stop. That all changed when I bought a garlic press, which minces a clove in a matter of seconds, and does a far better job of it than I could do with a knife. [Professional Stainless Steel Garlic Press Complete Bundle with Silicone Tube Peeler, $9 with code 25NLO83R]

Today only, Amazon’s gathered together a collection of balms, makeup, hair dryers, teeth whitening strips, and more grooming gear into a nice little Gold Box deal. Plenty of stuff here would make a great gift, so be sure to check out the entire collection. [Save up to 40% on Beauty & Grooming Essentials from Burt’s Bees, Dove, Conair and More]

Once you’re done, be sure to check out today’s apparel deals post for more.

Dyson vacuums dominated the nominations in our Kinja Co-Op for best vacuum, but they can be prohibitively expensive. Today only though, refurbs of the popular Dyson DC50 are down to $175 on Amazon, an all-time low.

These normally sell for about $400 new, or at least $270 refurbished, so this really is a solid Gold Box deal. The DC50 rides on top of a ball, allowing for nimble movement around your furniture, and weighs in a relatively svelte 11 pounds [Refurb Dyson DC50 Ball Compact Upright Vacuum, $175]

More of a board game person? One of the best ones you can buy is cheaper than ever on Amazon. It’s a perfect way to fight with your family this holiday season if you don’t feel like talking politics.[Catan 5th Edition, $34]

Star Wars Trilogy Episodes IV-VI ($35) | Amazon

Star Wars Trilogy Episodes I-III ($35) | Amazon

There may end up being better Black Friday deals on SONOS speakers, we’re not sure yet, but $50 off a pair of PLAY:1s is pretty solid, as far as SONOS goes. You can put them in two different rooms, or pair them together for stereo sound. [SONOS PLAY:1 2-Room Streaming Music Starter Set, $349]

This isn’t the first time Amazon’s had a sale like this, but if your car’s wiper blades are a little worn down, you can replace them both for just $22 today.

All you have to do is add any two Valeo frameless wiper blades (shipped and sold by Amazon) to your cart, and their total price will automatically drop to $22 at checkout. If you can’t remember what sizes your car requires, Amazon has a built-in tool at the top of the page to filter the options. [Buy Any Two Valeo Wiper Blades For $22]

Working late at your desk? You don’t need to burn the candle at both ends; you just need this LED desk lamp. The $30 lamp includes five color temperature settings, seven brightness settings, and even a USB charging port for your phone. [TaoTronics Dimmable LED Table Lamp w/ USB Charging Port, $30]

KMASHI makes some of the most popular battery packs we’ve ever posted, and their 15,000mAh model is down to a jaw-dropping $13 today on Amazon. Even if you’re all stocked up on battery packs, this would make a great gift for less tech-savvy friends and family members. [KMASHI 15000mAh External Battery Power Bank, $13 with code DNWS3612]

Hey, look, it’s the most popular headphones we’ve ever posted, now down to a stocking stuffer-friendly price. [Mpow Swift 2nd-Gen Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless Sports Headphones, $14 with code OSZP8NSZ]

This discounted flash drive doesn’t look like anything special at first blush, but hit one button, and it transforms into tiny wireless media server, allowing you to pull up files on any of your devices, including phones and tablets.

That means next time you travel, you can stream movies to your tablet or store photos from your phone without filling up your device’s precious onboard storage. Today’s $30 price tag is a match for the 32GB model’s all-time low. [SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick 32GB for Smartphones and Tablets, $30]

Odds are, you’ll be going to see a movie or two in the next couple of months, so if your preferred theater is an AMC location, here’s your no-brainer deal of the day.

All you have to do is buy this $25 AMC gift card for full price, and you’ll get a free $6 popcorn voucher tossed in for free. It’s not much, but if you go to an AMC theater anyway, there’s really no downside. [$25 AMC Gift Card + Free Popcorn Voucher, $25]

20% off iTunes gift card deals aren’t rare, but they’re usually only available for a specific denomination. Today on Staples though, you can save 20% on $25, $50, and $100 gift cards. [20% off all iTunes Gift Cards]

GoPro’s official eBay store is currently blowing out refurbs of last generation’s GoPro Hero3+ Silver for just $155. As long as you don’t mind that it’s “old,” that’s a really fantastic action cam for the price.

Let’s compare specs to the newer $200 GoPro Hero+ (Hero3+ Silver bolded).

  • Up to 1080p/60 or 720p/120 video vs. 1080p/60 and 720p/60
  • 10 MP stills vs. 8 MP
  • Removable battery and case vs. built-in case and non-removable battery

So basically, you’re saving $45 vs. the new Hero+, getting slightly better image quality, and a lot more shooting flexibility. That’s what they call a no-brainer. [Refurb GoPro Hero3+ Silver, $155]
