The deal that just didn't want to stay in stock is back, at least for now. These Velcro cable ties are one of the most popular items we've ever listed, and at $6 for a 100-pack, it's easy to see why. If the back of your home theater or your desk is a rat king of tangled wires, this is one of the easiest and most economical ways of wrangling them. The issue is that whenever we see them in stock at this price, they sell out within hours, so grab a pack while you can. [100 Velcro Cable Ties, $6]

Update: Sold out again, but keep checking back. Sometimes they'll come back in stock after a few hours.

Amazon just broke the cloud storage wars wide open with new $12/year unlimited photo storage plans, and $60 unlimited everything plans. Prime subscribers already get the photo plan included with their membership, but the ability to store every file you have on Amazon's servers for this low of a price is totally new. Check out Gizmodo's coverage for more details. [Amazon Cloud Drive]

If you still haven't upgraded your home's lighting to LED, here's a great chance to do it on the cheap. Today only, Amazon's selling 6-packs of Energetic Lighting LED bulbs starting at just $30.

I actually bought some of these exact bulbs during a sale late last year, and their lighting is essentially indistinguishable from incandescents, and far more pleasant than CFLs. Over the course of the last 18 months, I've transitioned every bulb in my home to LED, and I'll never go back. Compared to incandescents, they only use about 15% as much electricity to produce the same amount of light, and they last for years or even decades, so they'll inevitably pay for themselves several times over. That's great for your finances, and great for the environment. Many electric companies also offer a subsidy of about $1-$2 per bulb if you send them a proof of purchase, making them even cheaper.

As with all Gold Box deals, these prices are only available today, or until sold out. [ LED Bulb Sale]

This luggage scale will pay for itself many times over if it saves you from a single overweight baggage fee, and it's a whole lot easier to use than trying to balance your 30" suitcase on a tiny bathroom scale. Plus, it's small enough to pack and take with you, so you can be sure souvenirs from your trip didn't put you over the 50 pound limit. [DecoBros Digital Luggage Scale w/ 110 lb Capacity and Thermometer, $7]

Babysitting the grill or oven while dinner cooks is nobody's idea of a good time, but this wireless temperature probe will alert you the moment your food has reached the desired temperature. That means no more dried out, overcooked meat, and more importantly, no awkwardly taking back your guests' plates to finish cooking that E. Coli-ridden pink chicken. This set comes with two probes, a 300' range, and 15 pre-programmed settings for various meats. [Maverick Dual Probe Long Range Wireless Digital Thermometer Set, $50 with code 5EUBTJ62]

Nintendo's new 3DS is a terrific handheld console if you don't already own one, and possibly even a worthy upgrade for owners of the old model who use it frequently. If you've been waiting for a deal to pick one up, Walmart's got the first one worth mentioning.

Unfortunately, it's not a straight price drop, but it's a really solid bundle. You get the console in either red or black, a copy of Super Smash Bros. and your choice of Amiibo from a selection of 20. If you bought everything separately, you'd be looking at about $250, so this is a solid discount. [ New 3DS XL + Smash + Amiibo, $220]

If you already own Smash, you can get the same price for the console and a copy of Majora's Mask, but it doesn't come with an Amiibo. [ New 3DS XL + Majora's Mask, $219]

Are your measuring cups oven, microwave, and freezer safe? No? These are. They also have a 4.5 star average from over 2,500 reviews, and have never been cheaper. [Pyrex 3-Piece Measuring Cup Set, $11]

If you don't mind buying a refurb, Newegg has the excellent Roku 3 for just $63 right now. That gets you access to Roku's vast ecosystem of channels, as well as the ingenious headphone jack-sporting remote that lets you listen to TV in bed without disturbing the person next to you. [Refurb Roku 3, $63]

Years after their initial release, Sol Republic's Tracks headphones still look great, and more importantly, still sound great. If you're in the market for a good set of on-ears without breaking the bank, there are hard to beat at $50. If you prefer over-ears, the Master Tracks for $100 are also a great buy.

If you've been planning on picking up a new router anyway, you might as well score a $30 Amazon video game credit with your purchase.

For about the next month, when you purchase one of three select Netgear Nighthawk 802.11ac routers, you'll get an automatic $30 credit on your next video game purchase from Amazon. The routers themselves are not on sale in any meaningful way, but when you account for the $30 credit, they're all solid deals. [$30 Video Game Credit Promotion]

Today only, Amazon's selling subscriptions to several health-focused magazines for just $5 each. This is a Gold Box deal, so this price is only available until midnight PT, but it's possible some of them could sell out early. [Select Magazine Subs are Just $5 Each]

We see this sale from time to time, but it bears mentioning if you've missed out in the past. Outside of Black Friday sales, this is the best Wii U deal we've seen. No tax for most. [Wii U Deluxe Bundle with Mario 3D World and Nintendoland, $260]

Want a new iPad Air? Best Buy has all of the Wi-Fi models in stock for $75 off. We've seen some better deals in the past, usually on eBay, but this is solid if you're in the market. [$75 off Apple iPad Air 2s]

Note: If you want the 128GB model, a $100 discount on eBay is your best bet.

Everyone needs to keep a decent drill handy, and we've found two solid starter kits for under $45 today. They both come with a drill, a battery, tons of drill bits, and some other assorted tools as well.

Update: Amazon is also running a $10 off $50 promotion on Black & Decker tools, so if you add a cheap filer item, you can get them both as low as $40.

Unless you're an electrician, you probably don't need a multimeter very often, but for $7, you might as well keep one in your toolbox for emergencies. [Digital LCD Multimeter, $7]

It won't impress your geeky friends or integrate with your smartphone like a Nest, but thisHoneywell programmable thermostat is a terrific deal at $77. Unlike most programmable thermostats, this one has a touchscreen so it's much easier to program. [Honeywell 7-Day Universal Touchscreen Programmable Thermostat, $77]

These discounted high capacity USB chargers will make battery anxiety a thing of the past.

You're doing something wrong if you've ever given Apple 19 American dollars for a Lightning cable; there are plenty of cheaper options out there that are just as good. One of the most popular is Amazon's own AmazonBasics Lightning cable, and the 3' version is only $9 today.

We've seen slightly cheaper Lightning cables in the past from other sellers, but you know Amazon's customer service is top-notch if you ever have an issue, and a ridiculous 15,000+ reviewers have given the cable a 4.2 star score, so I'd say this is a safe buy. [ AmazonBasics Lightning Cable, $9]

If you own an Xbox, you basically need to have Xbox Live Gold, and this is about as cheap as it ever gets. [12 Months Xbox Live Gold, $36]

If you just spent hundreds of dollars on a GoPro, shelling out a ton of extra money for accessories might not seem palatable. Luckily, this well-reviewed third party kit comes with everything you need to get started, and it'll only set you back $20. [Go Pro 33pc. Accessory Kit, $20]
