Top Deals

As long as you don’t mind buying a certified refurb, this 29" VIZIO sound bar is fantastic value at $53.

Without a subwoofer, this might not be ideal for a main home theater sound system, but it’d be a massive upgrade to, say, your bedroom TV’s built-in speakers. And when your TV’s turned off, it’ll also work as a massive Bluetooth speaker for playing music from your phone. Just note that today’s price is an Amazon Gold Box deal, meaning it’s only available today, or until sold out.

No kitchen is complete without a substantial Pyrex aresenal, and this 4-container set (it’s technically eight pieces, but that includes lids) is back down under $15 on Amazon right now. If you aren’t familiar, these magical vessels are super strong, and also freezer, oven, and even microwave safe.

You’re never going to believe this, but there are some good deals on copper string lights today.

$10 gets you either a 19', 120-bulb strand with a solar panel and battery, or a 33', 100-LED strand with a remote and adjustable brightness. You can’t go wrong either way; just be sure to note the promo codes below.

Even if you aren’t planning on taking underwater photos of children eating watermelon, it never hurts to keep a waterproof phone case handy for rafting trips or beach getaways, especially when they only cost $3.

Netgear’s Arlo home security system is a lot like Nest Cam, except the cameras can run off battery power, so you really can stick them anywhere. If that sounds like something you’ve been looking out for, Amazon will sell you a 5-camera starter kit for $498, today only.

With the exception of a few one-day sales, this set always sells for $625, so be sure to lock in your order before the price shoots back up.

Remember that 55" curved Samsung TV that Amazon was selling for $650 on Prime Day? The one with 4K, smart apps, and HDR processing? Well, Dell has it today for $800, but with a $250 promo gift card thrown in for good measure. So if you plan on using the gift card for speakers, game consoles, or anything else to go with your new screen, this deal is even better.

For what it’s worth, I bought the non-curved version of this set on Prime Day, and I think it’s wonderful.

Just note that the gift code should appear in your cart, and will be emailed to you 10-20 days after your order. It’s valid on anything Dell sells, but only for 90 days.

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. (And, FWIW, last time the price was this low, you bought them all.)

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 its 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?”

If you’ve tried an unamplified HDTV antenna (like the standard Mohu Leaf), but can’t quite pull in every channel you want, this leaf-style model includes a USB-powered amp that should add a few miles of range. Promo code 74R4FQ39 brings it down to just $15, which is one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on an amplified antenna.

Now that smartphones are the size of skateboards, if you need a little help keeping a solid grip, this ingenious little finger grip is an awesome buy for $4.

All you have to do is stick the grip to the back of your phone or case, and slide it up to create a temporary loop for your finger. If that weren’t enough to justify the price, it’ll also double as a kickstand for your phone, and even a vent mount in the car. Just be sure to use code PXTNCNGI at checkout to get the deal.

If you have tri-ply copper cookware in your kitchen, you’re announcing to the world, “I am a successful person with their shit together who can afford to shop at Williams Sonoma and purchase $25 bottles of wine to enjoy on non-special occasions.” However, at $185 $200for a 12-piece set, that can be a complete lie. Use code CBACKTOSCHOOL to save an extra $15.

Update: The $15 code is expired, but $200 is still a great price.

Apple’s Time Capsule is a pretty solid 802.11ac router on its own, but its real selling point (at least for Mac owners) is its built-in 2TB hard drive for backing up your files via Time Machine. For a limited time, Staples is taking $100 off both the 2TB and 3TB models, but unless you really need the extra space, I’d stick to the smaller one.

Can’t get enough Purell? Amazon will sell you 32 mini bottles with jelly wraps for $29 today. Obviously, these are great for back-to-school season, but regular old germaphobes should also be able to put them to good use as well. Just be sure to clip the 10% coupon on the page.

By now, you’ve probably replaced most of the light bulbs in your home with LEDs, but what about your garage or workshop? This 4' long workshop LED light bar is designed just for those types of spaces, and can be installed anywhere with an AC outlet nearby, no wiring required. It’s marked down to $38 with Prime shipping today as part of a Gold Box deal, so pick one up before this discount burns out.

Late last year, Garmin added a built-in heart rate monitor and barometer to its vívosmart fitnesss tracker, and you can stap one to your wrist today for an all-time low $100, or $50 less than usual.

Amazon’s back at it again with another sample box. This time, you pay $5 for six or more cans of assorted soda, plus a $5 credit towards your next qualifying soda purchase on Amazon. Bottom’s up!

UE’s new Roll Bluetooth speaker is the company’s smallest offering, and reviews indicate that it lives up to its UE Boom predecessors. If you’ve been waiting for a discount to pick one up, you can save a whopping $50 today, courtesy of Best Buy.

It’s part of Best Buy’s massive 50 hour sale, which you can browse on our main post, or over at

Anker’s PowerPort wall chargers offer one of the best combinations of power, size, and build quality in the wall charger world, and two different models are on sale today.

Eddie Bauer is one of those reliable, every day brands. You can basically get anything you need for work or outdoors all in one place, for a reasonable price. Use the code BACKPACK and get 25% off every single thing in their store (except clearance, but that’s alright. There are a ton of New Arrivals right now). That includes men, women, and even gear.

Flannels are great but for some reason are never priced reasonably enough to warrant a new one (even if the one you have has holes in the elbows). But alas! Uniqlo has them marked down to only $20, both men’s and women’s styles. You don’t need to be a hipster or a lumberjack to wear these, I promise (unless you are one, then cool).

Update: Now matched at Amazon.

It’s 2016, and your headphones don’t need wires anymore. Luckily, BuyDig’s taking $30 off Sony’s popular and well-reviewed MDRXB950BT Bluetooth over-ears today. That’s a match for the best price we’ve ever seen, and you even get to pick from three different colors.

We shared the first deal on these Rubbermaid FreshWorks containers a few weeks ago, and on a couple of occasions since, and you guys have bought thousands of them, to the point that Amazon has killed the deal within hours each time we posted it. If you missed out, or just want more of them, the two-pack is back on sale for $17 today, down from $20.

So, what’s the big deal? First, each FreshWorks product includes a “crisp tray” which elevates your produce off the bottom of the container, giving moisture a place to drip, and air enough room to flow. Second and most importantly, the lids feature special filters that regulate the flow of oxygen and CO2 into and out of the containers. All told, Rubbermaid claims keeps food fresh up to 80% longer than store packaging.

It may sounds too good to be true, but customer reviews are fantastic, and Amazon’s taking offering a 2-piece set for $17 today, matching an all-time low. If they save just a few batches of arugula or scoops of blueberries that you would have otherwise thrown out, they’ll have already paid for themselves.

If you missed out on the Steam Link and Steam Controller discounts during the summer sale, Amazon’s marked them both back down to $35, matching an all-time low.

Ninja makes your favorite affordable blenders, but if you’re willing to step up in price a bit, you can get the 1500W Nutri Ninja Blender Duo for $130 today, an all-time low.

In addition to the extremely powerful motor, the Duo includes three different blending jars, so you don’t have to wash a giant pitcher every time you feel like making yourself a smoothie.

Just note that this model is already backordered, but it typically sells for $160-$200, so it’s probably worth the wait.

This water-resistant Mpow Bluetooth speaker has been popular among our readers during a few $15-$20 deals in the past, but today, you can get it for an all-time low $13 with code ZXWXXA27. It’s hardly the only water-resistant speaker in this price range, but I appreciate the suction cup mount that allows you to stick it to your shower wall.

Everyone should keep an inverter in their glove box for powering laptops and other electronics in the car, and this 150W model from Aukey should be sufficient for almost everyone.

Pandemic Legacy is a co-op board game that raises the stakes by adding permanent (actually permanent) changes to the board as you play, and it’s amazing. It also happens to be marked down to $49 on Amazon today, within a couple bucks of an all-time low.

Note: Both of these products are the same game, just with different color schemes, in case you want to have two games going at once with different groups of people.

Every traveler needs a good toiletry kit, and preferably a hanging one at that. This model from AmazonBasics isn’t made of fancy leather, and it’s not embroidered with your initials, but it’s down to an all-time low $12 today, and should last you for years.

Unless you reallllly need to print in color, Brother makes some of the only printers worth buying, and their small office-friendly DCPL2540DW is on sale for a consumer-level price today.

Like Brother’s home printers, this model spits out about 30 pages per minute, includes Wi-Fi connectivity, uses inexpensive and long-lasting toner, and just generally works much more reliably than any inkjet printer out there. The biggest advantage of this model over an HL-series printer is that it includes a document feeder for the scanner, meaning it can automatically scan 35 pages in a row with no user input.

$90 is within $5 of the best price Amazon’s ever offered on this model, so list that inkjet printer of yours on Craigslist, and go lock in your order.

Let’s say you’ve already upgraded to a good toothbrush; what’s the next step for cleaner teeth? Judging by the excellent user reviews, this 14-count box of Crest 3D Whitestrips is a great place to start. Just be sure to clip the $5 coupon before you check out.

We see deals on WeMo switches and TP-Link Smart Plugs on a pretty regular basis, but this similar product from Koogeek is Apple HomeKit certified, and only $24 today.

Like those other smart switches, the Koogeek Wi-Fi Smart Plug includes an app for turning your electronics on and off, and putting them on a schedule. The key difference here is that you can also control it with Siri from your phone, or from Control Center in iOS 10 (coming soon). That’s a big deal if you’re an iPhone owner, and with promo code CBNSYGGW, you’re not even paying a premium for it.

Sugru is right up there with binder clips and the Raspberry Pi in Lifehacker’s pantheon of must-have gear, and you can stock up today with eight packs from Amazon for just $13, the best price we’ve ever seen on the stuff.

iTunes gift card discounts are noticeably less common than they used to be, and while we do see 20% discounts from time to time, a $100 iTunes gift card for $85 is still a solid deal if you pay for Apple Music, iCloud storage, or PokéCoins.
