Top Deals

If you don’t own a pressure cooker, today’s a great day to fix that. Amazon’s knocked the highly-rated Instant Pot IP-LUX60 all the way down to $70, the best price they’ve ever listed.

If you’re worried that you won’t get a ton of use out of this thing, note that in addition to standard pressure cooking, you can also use the Instant Pot as a slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, and more. Plus, it carries a stellar 4.6 star review average from nearly 3,000 customers, so there’s not much risk of this thing letting you down. Just be aware that this is a Gold Box deal, meaning this price is only available today, and it could sell out early.

If you still have any TVs without a Chromecast attached, Google’s official eBay store will sell you one at a $5 discount today (also available on Chromecast Audio). Plus, Google will throw in 90 days of unlimited Google Play music, plus two months of Spotify Premium (new users only) for free.

Dell’s P15Q series 4K monitors have long been the most affordable 4K IPS displays on the market, but today the 24" version is all the way down to $367, within a few bucks of an all-time low on Amazon.

Update: Now up to $383, which is historically still a solid price, but not nearly as good as $367.

If you aren’t familiar, IPS displays boast superior color accuracy and viewing angles compared to the TN panels you’ll find in most cheap 4K monitors, and with this deal, you’re basically getting IPS for “free” compared to the going rate for similar 4K displays. I happen to own this exact model, and I absolutely love it.

TCL’s 2016 4K TVs aren’t technological marvels, but they might just represent the best value in the TV world, and two separate 55" models are on sale for all-time low prices right now.

Today on Amazon, the TCL UP130 is down to $600, and the US5800 is just $500. They’re both 55", and they both include built-in Roku software, but the UP130 though includes an enhanced remote with a microphone, 802.11ac Wi-Fi (rather than 802.11n), and improved styling. As far as picture quality goes, they should be essentially identical, so it’s up to you whether the extra accoutrements are worth $100.

If you missed out in theaters, Amazon and iTunes will rent you an HD copy of Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight for just a buck right now. As with all digital rentals, you’ll have 30 days to start watching, and then 24 (iTunes) or 48 (Amazon) hours to finish, so you don’t have to find time to watch it tonight.

A small new batch of $20 Nintendo Selects games will be released on August 26, and if you have Amazon Prime, you can get any or all of them for just $16 (discount shown at checkout).

iClever’s BoostCube travel USB charger isn’t as small as the Aukey we highlighted earlier this week, but it can put out 12W and 2.4A per port, rather than sharing that amount of power between both. That’s a ton of power for $7 (with code DEALBIG1).

GoPro’s short-lived HERO+ LCD is no longer in active production, which is a shame, because it was a pretty great mid-level action cam. That doesn’t mean you can’t still buy them though, as Best Buy’s pushing them as part of a great bundle deal today.

In addition to a $100 discount from from $300 to $200, Best Buy will throw in an official GoPro Wi-Fi remote, an extended battery BacPac, and a $20 Shutterfly credit with your purchase today. A la carte, those extras would cost you about $150 on any given day, so if you’ve been on the fence about picking up a GoPro, this might be the time to pull the trigger.

Perry Ellis is sailing into the end of the summer by clearing out their clearance rack. Save an additional 60% on clearance items, and stock up short-sleeve button downs for those end-of-summer BBQs or a nice polo for your friends’ engagement party.

It should go without saying that this $66 hexacopter isn’t as advanced as a DJI Phantom, but it still has a pretty impressive feature set for the price.

The most interesting thing about the UDI U845 is that it can fly in headless mode, meaning you can control it relative to the position of the transmitter, rather than the direction it’s facing. You also get a pair of batteries good for 6-9 minutes each, a built-in 720p camera with live FPV streaming to your phone, and most importantly, a button to do flips.

If you want to see it in action before you buy, here’s a good YouTube review.

You don’t necessarily have to have children to appreciate Babyganics’ scent-free, hypoallergenic products, and Amazon’s taking an extra 35% off over a half a dozen products. Head over to this post for the full list!

A smartphone handlebar mount can turn your bike into the ultimate Pokémon Go machine, and this one’s available for just $6 today with code F6QGB9OO. That’s the best price we’ve seen on a bike mount recently, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it sold out quickly.

Speaking of deals to make your bike smarter, this $18 gadget from KMASHI is an LED headlight, Bluetooth speaker, and USB battery pack all rolled into one. That means you can roll between Pokéstops all night long, and be able to hear when a new Pokémon comes into range.

Sony’s 300W HT-CT380 sound bar and wireless subwoofer sets up in minutes, and will give your home theater a serious audio boost. If that sounds appealing, you can grab one from BuyDig’s eBay storefront for $190 today or $70 less than Amazon.

Ninja’s new high-end coffee maker has all the bells and whistles you could want in a coffee machine, and you can pick one up for $140 today, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen.

The headlining feature here is Ninja’s Auto-iQ system, which automatically adjusts the water level based on the brew size and type you select, but you’ll also get a permanent filter, milk frother and tumbler in the box. Just note that this deal is only available today, so don’t sleep on it.

Mpow brought affordable Bluetooth headphones to the mainstream, and today, they’ll sell you a pair with active noise cancellation and IPX4 waterproofing for $15. Awesome haircut not included.

If you don’t already own a water filtration pitcher, this PUR 11-cup model is marked down to an all-time low $23 today. This particular model includes an LED indicator light to remind you to change the filter, and the filters themselves are less expensive than Brita’s.

I’ll tell you a secret: I don’t really care that much about filtration. I mostly like these because they mean I always have ice cold water ready to go at all times.

You all know the drill with these dry bags by now. They keep your phone safe from the elements whether you’re surfing in the ocean, swimming in a pool, or just lounging on the beach, and $7 for a three-pack is about as cheap as you’ll ever see them.

While supplies last, if you buy a $5 Crest sample box from Amazon, you’ll get a $5 credit to spend on your next Crest purchase from the site. Even if Crest isn’t your usual brand, those sample sizes are perfect for traveling, so you should definitely get some use out of them.

If reliability is something you crave in a pair of shoes (if it isn’t, you may need to reconsider), I bet you have Cole Haan in your closet. And if you’re looking for a new pair but don’t want to spend the normal asking price, they’re giving you an extra 40% off sale items with the code EXTRA40, for both men’s and women’s styles.

Once again, LOFT is here to make your summer wardrobe better. Get 40% off everything (including New Arrivals) when you use the code BESTFRIENDS to celebrate their Friends & Family event. It’s a LOFT summer, if I do say so myself.

In my opinion, the best time to buy winter apparel is when it isn’t winter. For one, you don’t need to scramble to find something warm, and secondly, most things are on sale. Like, Nordstrom Rack’s The North Face sale going on right now. Save up to $100 on The North Face outerwear and get ready for the months ahead.

Benefit Cosmetics is by far one of my favorite makeup brands. The products are high-quality and the packaging is one-of-a-kind. I know I’ll be stocking up during their SALE-abration, with up to 50% off some really awesome limited edition sets and free shipping with the code SHIP25. You’d better too.

Update: This seems to be sold out. Sorry!

One of the best wireless router deals we’ve ever seen is running right now at T-Mobile, of all places. $59 gets you a rebranded ASUS RT-AC68U AC1900 router (with code WIFI50), which is about $100 less than buying it from Amazon.

The T-Mobile version has some T-Mobile branding and claims to be optimized for Wi-Fi calling, but under the hood, it’s just a standard (and very popular Wi-Fi router). The deal is available to everyone, even if you aren’t a T-Mobile customer, but we don’t expect it to last long at all.

The Cabeau Evolution was your favorite travel pillow (by a long shot), and you can save 20% on the company’s “Cool” model today.

Like the original Evolution, the Evolution Cool is made of memory foam, and wraps all the way around your neck to provide support if your head nods off to the side while you’re traveling. The key difference is the integrated vent running along the middle of the pillow, which should keep your neck from getting too sweaty.

If you have any long trips on the horizon, you can save 20% on all four colors today with promo code LBYL79GJ. Cabeau’s pillows never go on sale, so if you’ve had one on your wish list, this is a great opportunity.

By now, most of you probably have a USB battery pack or two to keep your phones charged, and that’s great! But I’m willing to bet most of them won’t start your car if its battery dies.

The $59 Anker compact car jump starter has your standard pair of USB ports and a 10,000mAh built-in battery, but it also ships with a set of removable jumper cables to jolt your car’s engine to life in a pinch. Once you’re up and running, it’ll even recharge itself via an included 15V car charger, so it never even has to leave your glove box.

Hopefully you don’t need to use this often, but it’s one of those things you’ll be really glad you bought when the time comes. This particular model has been a little cheaper during a couple of Amazon Gold Boxes, but today’s price is still well below its usual $70-$80.

This 20V Worx string trimmer isn’t the most powerful model out there, but it should get the job done for most normal yards, and it critically includes two batteries (roughly 20 minutes each) and a charger for just $80.

Can’t wait for fall? Neither can Sperry. They’re marking down their fall styles to $75 for both men and women. So if you need a new pair of boat shoes, now the chance to grab a pair for $20 off.

Fitbit’s Alta is one of the first fitness trackers that actually looks nice on your wrist, owing largely to its fashionable interchangeable bands, and we’re finally starting to see some (admittedly small) deals.

Amazon’s currently offering several colors and sizes for $119, or about $11 off its MSRP. No, that’s not a huge deal, but it’s about as good as you’re likely to see these days.

Lärabars are great for starting your day or fueling up on the go, and Amazon’s taking an extra 25% off when you buy various multipacks as part of a back-to-school promotion. Just pick your favorite flavor, and you should see the extra savings at checkout.

We’ve shared lots of deals on 32 and 64GB flash drives that include microUSB plugs for your Android devices before, but here’s one on a massive 128GB model. In case you haven’t seen these yet, they’re perfect for storing videos to watch on your tablet during a long flight, or sharing large amounts of vacation photos from your phone without using a computer.

There’s a little-known indie game called No Man’s Sky out today on PS4, and if you have Prime, you can snag a copy for $48 (discount shown at checkout).

In case you weren’t aware, this 20% video game discount is available for Prime members on all preorder and new release games (physical copies only), out to two weeks post-release. So if you’re ready to take off an explore the universe, this is an easy way to save $12.

Only luddites use tape measures anymore. This laser distance measurer takes instant distance readings that are accurate to within 1/16 of an inch, and includes several built-in area calculation functions, in case you’re a little rusty on your middle school math.

You spend 1/3 of your life in contact with a pillow, so it had better be a good one. This Langria bed pillow is stuffed with chunks of shredded memory foam, and it can be yours for only $24 today with code BACKTOSS. Don’t sleep on this deal.

You never want to be in a situation where you need a solar and hand crank-powered weather radio with a flashlight and USB port for charging your phone, but when you can get one for $18, you probably should buy it just in case.

The thing that’s really frustrating me about No Man’s Sky is that I bought an Xbox One, so I can’t play it. If you’re in the same boat, this $280 console deal is about as cheap as PS4s ever get. Just note that you won’t get any bundled games.

Update: You can also get PS4 with Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Uncharted 4, and No Man’s Sky for $400.

Amazon bills this buy two and save $5 promotion as a back to school special, but I’m not going back to school anytime soon, and I would still love to buy some of these snacks. Eligible products include everything from Lays chips to Starbucks Refreshers to oatmeal, so head over to Amazon and pick out your two favorites.

The Halo 5: Guardians Limited Edition must have been a real flop, because it’s selling for just $27 on Amazon today, an all-time low by $10, and miles and miles from its original $100.

That gets you the game, limited edition packaging, dossiers, the Halo: The Fall of Reach animated series, requisition packs, a Metal Earth Guardian model, and more. This was certainly not the best Halo game, but it’s still worth playing if you’ve enjoyed the rest of the series.

You know the little charging brick that came with your phone? Throw it out, and spend $7 on this replacement from Aukey (with code AUKEY12W). It’s basically the same size as Apple’s standard iPhone charger, but it includes two ports, folding prongs, and 2.4A of current (instead of 1A) to charge your devices faster.

Strip lights can add dramatic accents to your home, or just light up the area under your kitchen cabinets, and this 16' TaoTronics set is a great deal for $24.

The strip packs in 1.5 LEDs per inch, which far exceeds most competing models, and you can use the included remote to dim them or choose from over 4,000 different colors. They’re certainly not the cheapest strip lights we’ve seen, but outside of expensive Philips Hue strips, they might be the most versatile.
