Top Deals

If you aren’t wholly satisfied with your current mop or vacuum, we’ve spotted four separate deals that can keep your floors spotless, with minimal effort.

First, let’s talk about steam mops. When it comes to cleaning hard floors, you’ve basically got three options to choose from, if you don’t want to get down on your hands and knees:

  • A regular old mop, which can leave your floors wet for hours.
  • A Swiffer WetJet, or any similar product that uses disposable (read: expensive) cleaning pads and chemical spray that can leave a residue.
  • A steam mop, which cleans using regular tap water that dries within seconds.

Shark is the hottest name in steam, and Amazon’s marked their basic Steam Pocket Mop down to $44, the best price we’ve ever seen. I own this thing, and absolutely love it.

Update: The Shark Pocket Mop is sold out at $44, but the Blast & Scrub deal for $60 is still available.

For bigger messes, you can also opt for the Shark Blast & Scrub, which can fire concentrated bursts of steam to break up grime on your floors. It normally sells for around $100, but you can pick it up for $60 today from Best Buy’s eBay store.

Of course, you need a vacuum cleaner as well, and if your current model still uses a cord, I’d say it’s officially time to embrace the battery-powered future. The highly maneuverable Hoover Linx features an 18-volt battery, a motorized brush that you can turn on and off, and an easy-to-empty receptacle. It normally retails for $130-$160, but today, you can grab one for $99 as part of Amazon’s Gold Box. I wouldn’t be surprised if it sold out early.

And finally, if you prefer a more hands-off approach, Anker’s RoboVac robotic vacuum is currently on sale for just $200. It was $10 less last week during a Gold Box deal, but otherwise, this is the best price we’ve seen. My parents just got one, and they’ve been really impressed.

Anker’s brand new PowerCore 10000 is part of your favorite line of USB battery packs, and you can pick one up on Amazon today for just $22, which is $8 less than usual, and an all-time low. Not to be confused with the older PowerCore 10000, this model includes Quick Charge 3.0 (backwards compatible with 2.0), which should feed power into your compatible phone like a firehose.

You also get Anker’s standard 18 month warranty and a nice travel pouch, but the real reason to buy the PowerCore 10000 is its size. If you’ve owned other ~10,000mAh battery packs, you’ll be shocked how small and light this thing is.

Tri-ply cookware, which blends the durability of stainless steel with the even and rapid heating of aluminum, is a great investment for any at-home chef, and you can own a full set from KitchenAid today for just $230.

The set comes complete with two skillets, two saucepans, a sauté pan, a stock pot, a pasta insert, and a bunch of matching lids, which is basically everything you need for the vast majority of dishes.

I know, I know. The Xbox One S is coming soon. But damn, it’s hard to resist the white Gears of War special edition console bundle, Minecraft, NBA 2K16, and an extra controller for just $279.

You can also opt for the 1TB three-game bundle, a copy of Forza Horizon 2, and an extra controller for $299.

And finally, the Elite bundle doesn’t come with any games, but it does come with the fantastic Elite controller, plus a bonus standard gamepad for $349.

Vitamix makes some of the best high-end blenders on the market, (just ask The Sweethome), and Amazon is selling refurbs in multiple colors for $280 today, or about $100 less than the usual refurb price.

These are labeled as the Vitamix 1888-1901, depending on the color, but they’re actually refurbished Vitamix 6300 blenders, which are a little older, but sell for over $500 new. The only difference? You get a five year warranty instead of seven. I’d say that’s worth saving over $200.

Amazon’s Prime Pantry program is great for stocking up on household goods and non-perishable foods without actually having to visit a store, but the $5.99 per box shipping charge has always been a drag. This month though, if you buy five select items, you can get that fee waived.

Bonus: If you already have a no-rush free shipping credit in your account, this deal actually appears to stack, netting you an extra $6 discount.

They ran a similar promotion the last few months with different eligible items. Just add five of them to your box (plus anything else that will fit), and use code PANTRYJUN at checkout to get free shipping.

You don’t need to buy a whole new car to get a better stereo system, you just need a new amplifier or head unit from Boss Audio, and several different options are on sale for $100 or less in today’s Amazon Gold Box.

Maybe you love the “Covert Forces” design, maybe you hate it. Either way, $36 is the best price we’ve ever seen on an Xbox One gamepad with 3.5mm jack, so it’s certainly worth considering.

RAVPower just came out with their own collection of kevlar-wrapped charging cables to compete with Anker PowerLine, and you can get a 6-pack of the microUSB cables for FREE today when you purchase a Quick Charge 3.0 wall charger. Just add both items to your cart, and use code DT7O9EJE.

And don’t forget, you can still get a 2-pack (a 3' and a 6') of kevlar-wrapped Lightning cables for $13 with code K6VLNE3K.

Whether you like to sing in the shower, or just need more time in the day to catch up on your podcast backlog, a water-resistant Bluetooth speaker lets you bring your favorite audio into the shower, and we’ve spotted two good speakers for just $15 each today.

The Mpow Buckler has a stronger driver (5W vs. 3W) a suction cup, and slightly longer promised battery life, but the Aukey has a big metal handle that you can use a kickstand, or to hang it from a hook. Really, you can’t go wrong either way at these prices.

Update: The plain black Mpow Buckler is available for $10, without a promo code.

We’ve seen plenty of deals on Bluetooth keyboards designed for mobile devices before, but this is the only one I can remember that includes both a stand for your phones and tablets, and also a trackpad for controlling the cursor on desktop operating systems. That’s what I call versatility.

Borosilicate glass (think Pyrex) makes for a great water bottle material, and you can save on two different bottles from MIU COLOR today. Both include a nylon sleeve to keep your hands safe if you’re using them for hot beverages, but the $21 model includes a tea steeper.

Need a little push to get off the couch? The Fitbit Charge HR is your favorite wearable fitness tracker, and you can get one for just $100 today, which is a match for the best deal we’ve seen.

Assuming you have (or don’t mind buying) a receiver, and aren’t bothered by the thought of running wires, this $100 speaker set from Monoprice is one of the most tempting home theater audio deals we’ve ever seen.

Whiel it isn’t as turnkey as a VIZIO 5.1 sound bar system, it should sound really good, and will give you much better separation on the front channels. Unfortunately, today’s $100 deal isn’t eligible for Monoprice’s current $20 off $100/$10 off $50 promotions, but it’s tough to complain at this price.

Gaming mice are for more than just gamers, and you can try one out for $25 or less today.

The Corsair KATAR includes an ultra-fast 8,000DPI sensor, four buttons, and red backlight all for an all-time low $25. Or, you could opt for the off-brand Xcords ZM700 for $14, which has more buttons and more backlight colors, but sports only a 2500DPI sensor.

The PS Vita doesn’t get a ton of new games at this point, but it might be worth it just for remote PS4 streaming, and you can pick one up for just $120 today, the best price we’ve ever seen on a non-refurb.

Teva sandals have been around forever. I bet you probably had a pair in the ‘90s that you swore you hated but kind of miss. Well, if you miss that feeling, head over to Amazon and snatch up a pair for as low at $15.

When it comes to finding the right pair of shoes, Rockport should be on your radar. Amazon has a few styles on sale right now that, if you’re hankering for some new kicks, you should take advantage of.

Madewell is like the old friend that really goes all out for your birthday once a year. That birthday meaning when they have extra discounts on sale items, like today with an extra 30% off with the code EXTRA30. It’s easy to get lost in the thought of indie domination when Madewell has pieces you just can’t resist.

We posted this sound bar system for $300 last week, which at the time was the best price we’d seen. Turns out though, if you have an Amazon Rewards Visa, you can save an additional $60!

If you aren’t familiar, this VIZIO system offers true 5.1 surround sound by way of a wireless subwoofer and a pair of satellite speakers (which plug into the subwoofer), all without the aid of of a receiver, and without the need to run any cables from your TV to the back of the room. I own a smaller version of the same setup, and absolutely love it.

All you have to do is add the system to your cart, select your Amazon Rewards Visa as the method of payment, and use code ARC20SPRING. It’s part of a larger 20% off promotion for cardholders, and while this is the most intriguing deal available, you can see the rest here.

If you feel like your iPhone 6 or 6s isn’t sufficiently protected, Anker’s discounting a few popular cases to just $5 or $7 today, depending on whether or not you want a glass screen protector. Just pick your favorite below, and be sure to note the appropriate promo code.

Bonus: Just need to guard your screen? Here’s a three-pack of tempered glass screen protectors for $7.

Anker’s PowerLine Lightning cables won our recent Kinja Co-Op, but did you know there’s a microUSB version too? For a limited time, $8 gets you a four-pack of travel-friendly 1' cables; just use promo code XH52F6XP at checkout to get the deal.

Need some Lightning cables too? Anker’s standard (not PowerLine) 3' cables are on sale for $6 each with code VY4252RH. The deal is valid on blue, green, pink, and yellow.

The Kryptonite Kryptolok Series 2 bike lock comes bearing a 4.2 star review average from over 1,700 Amazon customers, and a Sweethome recommendation for good measure, and you can grab one today from BuyDig for $30, within a dollar of the best price we’ve ever seen. Just use promo code BIKEMORE at checkout to get the deal.

Running shoes for a reasonable price are usually one of two things. They’re either terribly quality or a ridiculous colorway. These Asics GEL-Excite 3 Running Shoes are neither, and they’re only $30 on Ebay right now. Both the men’s and women’s style is listed at that price. Plus, these were voted as one of the best women’s running shoes by readers.

Update: This deal is available again, but with a backorder.

Iced coffee is a brilliant way to sell people ice for the price of coffee (which is mostly water to begin with). Cold brew on the other hand is a different process that results in less acidity, among other benefits, and you can do it yourself at home with this $15 Takeya. You guys have bought a lot of these at around $19-$20, but today’s deal is the best Amazon’s ever listed.

Uniqlo is kind of known for their Heattech and AIRism lines, and right now you can get select AIRism styles for $8 but practically every AIRism style is on sale. With the way this summer is shaping up to be, you may need all the help you can get staying cool.

You’ve heard of Automatic’s smart driving assistant, but if $70-$100 is too rich for your blood, this cheap OBD2 dongle connects to any iPhone or Android device over Wi-Fi, and can fulfill many of the same functions using various third party apps.

Your favorite USB car charger just happens to be the smallest one you can buy, and you can grab it on Amazon for $9 today with code QNL6CMJR. We’ve seen it go as low as $6 on a few occasions, but this is the best deal we’ve seen in several months, if it’s been on your wish list.

Note: Be sure to buy from Aukey’s Amazon listing, not from Amazon directly.

Have a Sam’s Club in your area, and don’t mind buying in bulk? You can get a 1-year membership (a $45 value), a complimentary spouse or household membership, a $10 gift card, and $100 is special coupons all for just $25 today, courtesy of Living Social. Even if you didn’t use the gift card or the coupons, that’s still a great deal on the membership alone.

It only has the one port, but still, $5 is one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on a Quick Charge 2.0 wall charger.

We’ve seen a lot of deals on Bluetooth car receivers, but I don’t think any of them have looked as nice as this model from Aukey. It even lets you pair two phones at once, and comes with a three-port USB charger to keep all of your devices charged as well. Just note that your car will need an AUX jack for this to work.

Anker’s kevlar-wrapped Lightning cables arrived on the scene late last year, and quickly became the go-to cable of choice for most of our readers. Now, RAVPower is out with its own version, and you can get a 2-pack (one 3', and one 6' cable) for $13 with code K6VLNE3K.

These cables are brand new, so there aren’t a ton of reviews yet, but RAVPower generally makes very good charging products, so it might be worth taking the plunge.

If you hurry, Amazon’s selling your undisputed favorite travel mug, the Contigo Autoseal West Loop, for as little as $13, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen, and a solid discount from its usual $18-$20. Just be sure to grab one before the deal cools off.
