Top Deals

I wouldn’t want to use it for my floors, but with its handheld design, long hose, and multiple attachments, this powerful Black & Decker cordless vacuum is perfect for detail cleaning. Sure, you could get a Dustbuster for a little less, but this model’s hose should be much more maneuverable in tight spaces. [Black & Decker FHV1200 Flex Vac Cordless Ultra-Compact Vacuum Cleaner, $39 for Prime members only]

Featuring an eight foot power cord, 11 AC outlets, plus coax and phone line protection, this APC surge protector is exactly what you need behind your home theater. Amazon will sell you one for $16 right now, which is an all-time low. [APC SurgeArrest Surge Protector, $16]

A good deal on a clothing iron probably isn’t the most exciting thing we’ve ever posted, but everyone should own one, and you could do a lot worse than this 4.5 star-rated Rowenta.

Amazon lists the price at $83, but the $6 coupon on the page will drop it to $77 at checkout, which is the second lowest price they’ve ever listed. [Rowenta DW5197 Focus Steam Iron, $77 with $6 coupon]

Some people can’t live without their coffee. For me, it’s fizzy water. We’ve seen this SodaStream starter pack slightly cheaper before, but $50 is still a great deal, so be sure to grab it before it goes flat. [SodaStream Fountain Jet Soda Maker Starter Kit, $50]

Mpow’s Swift Bluetooth headphones were a breakout hit on Kinja Deals in 2015, and today, the 2nd-gen models are on sale for under $20. [Mpow Swift 2nd-Gen Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless Sports Headphones, $18 with code B7CLEELZ]

And though they have fewer reviews, these SoundPeats alternatives add in an over-ear hook for added security. [SoundPEATS Q9A Wireless Bluetooth Sweatproof Secure Fit Earbuds (Black), $16 with code SDQ9A15U]

One of the only downsides of cast iron pans is that they can be a nightmare to clean, but this 4.6 star-rated chainmail scrubber can scrape away caked-on food without hurting your seasoning, or resorting to soap. [Hudson Cast Iron Cleaner XL 7x7 Premium Stainless Steel Chainmail Scrubber, $14]

Victorinox’s Fibrox 8" chef’s knife is one of your favorite kitchen blades, and today, the nimbler 6" version is all the way down to $20. I’ve been using the same 8" knife for years, and it’s maintained a fantastic edge with very little maintenance. [Victorinox 40570 Cutlery 6-Inch Chef’s Knife, $20]

Most gaming mice look like futuristic EMP grenades or robotic pets, but Razer’s DeathAdder became one of your favorite gaming mice by keeping things clean and simple. If you want to try it out, Amazon’s marked the color-changing Chroma model down to $54 today, the best price they’ve listed since the holidays. [Razer DeathAdder Chroma, $54]

Today’s best console deals are nothing if not unique. If you’re interested in an Xbox One, this Gears of War Bundle comes with a free bonus Halo gamepad and a copy of Far Cry Primal, for some reason. If you’d prefer a PS4, this Star Wars Battlefront bundle costs $50 more than usual, but it comes with a Sphero BB-8 droid toy, which is a $140 value on its own.

Xbox One Gears of War Bundle + Far Cry Primal + Halo Controller ($350) | eBay

Sony PS4 Star Wars Battlefront Bundle + Sphero BB-8 ($400) | eBay

Samsung’s SmartThings ecosystem is one of the easiest and most powerful ways to give your home a brain, and you can get started today with a solid Amazon Gold Box deal.

$120 gets you a SmartThings hub, and a WeMo-style smart outlet to get you started. Out of the box, this will let you use your phone (including an iPhone) to control any lamp or appliance that plugs into the wall, but you’ll get a lot more out of the system when you start attaching multipurpose sensors, arrival detectors, water leak sensors, and security cameras. [SmartThings Hub and Outlet Bundle, $120]

ExOfficio’s Give-N-Go boxer brief was one of your favorite pairs of men’s underwear, and the best-selling variety of underwear we’ve ever posted. If you prefer standard briefs though, today’s you lucky day. [ExOfficio Men’s Give-N-Go Brief, $12. Black only]

2016 will be the year of Quick Charge 3.0, which can take your phone from zero to 80 in 35 minutes, and you can get ready with some of the first deals we’ve seen on compatible chargers.

AUKEY Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 USB Wall Charger ($15) | Amazon | Use code TS8778MR

AUKEY Quick Charge 3.0 USB Car Charger ($14) | Amazon | Use code KUTGGMWI

Look, I hear you. $149 is a lot to spend on a toothbrush. That said, this particular Sonicare model has never been this cheap before, and it includes three different modes combined with three different intensity settings, plus bells and whistles like a travel charger, pressure sensor, and three week battery. [Philips Sonicare Flexcare Platinum Sonic Electric Toothbrush, HX9112/13, $149]

If you’ve been waiting for a deal on Huawei’s excellent-but-expensive Android Wear smartwatch, Amazon’s taking $50 off the base stainless steel/leather strap model today. It was cheaper for a little while around Black Friday, but this is the best deal of 2016. [Huawei Watch, $300]

Today on Amazon, you can take your pick of two great Mpow Bluetooth speaker deals that are great for taking on a camping trip, or into the shower.

The Mpow Armor is IP65 dust and water resistant, so it should stand up fine to a little splashing. Its headline feature though is a dedicated 1000mAh backup battery that you can use to give your phone a little bit of juice in an emergency. [Mpow Armor Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speakers with Additional 1000 mAh Emergency Power Bank, $28 with code VNZDPEWC]

If you’re really serious about getting your speaker wet though, the new AquaPro is IPX7 water resistant, meaning it can be fully submerged in a meter of water for 30 minutes. Hey, it’ll be pool season before you know it. [Mpow AquaPro Portable Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker with SOS Emergency Alert, $27 with code DN4TV5AB]

Sure, you could throw your old SSD into a cheap plastic enclosure, and have yourself a speedy little external drive. But if you do that, how will people know you’re a tech savvy person using an external SSD, and not a plebe who bought an $80 hard drive at Best Buy? These two alternatives will keep your drive on display for all the world to see, so you can sit back and accumulate your precious nerd points.

Inateck USB 3.0 to SATA Converter Adapter for 2.5 inch/3.5 inch Hard Drive Disk HDD and SSD ($19) | Amazon | Use code NNUA2WGL

SuperSpeed USB 3.0 to SATA Hard Drive Docking Station for 2.5 & 3.5" ($16) | Amazon | Use code RN3O9JYT

Giddyup over to Amazon, where you’ll find not one, but two western-themed Gold Box apparel deals today. As always, these are only available today, or until sold out.

Note: The “Western Clothing & Accessories” sale includes some perfectly normal-looking jeans.

This tiny camping lantern includes a hand crank for charging, and even a USB output to charge up your phone. It should go without saying that you won’t want to rely on this to give your phone a full charge, but it’d be great for emergencies. [ThorFire USB Rechargeable Camping LED Lantern w/ Hand-Crank USB Charger, $9 with code LBMBUL53]

You don’t need a yard, or even any gardening skills to grow your own food at home; you just need Miracle-Gro’s Aerogarden line. These fully-integrated, soil-free indoor gardens can grow herbs, vegetables, and salad greens up to five times faster than regular soil, and nearly the entire lineup is on sale right now.

Prices start at just $45 for the Sprout model, which can grow three pods at a time, and range up to $198 for the Bounty, which fits nine. All of these prices are either all-time lows, or the best we’ve seen outside of special one-day promotions, so don’t hesitate. If you need help deciding, each Amazon page has a comparison chart with all of the main features.

Sony’s MDR-XB950BT Bluetooth headphones are extremely popular even at their usual $200 price level, but if you buy refurbished today, you can save 50%. Reviewers say that these sound great, which shouldn’t come as a surprise, but its the 20 hour battery life that really makes them stand apart. [Refurb Sony MDR-XB950BT Bluetooth Headphones, $100]

For all of your vitamin and supplement needs, Vitamin Shoppe is taking 20% off sitewide today. That goes for protein powder, energy drinks, lube...anything they sell. [20% off Vitamin Shoppe with code TWENTY16]

Your Mac probably doesn’t have enough USB ports, but this brushed aluminum 4-port hub will look right at home next to the rest of your Apple gear. [Aukey 4-Port Aluminum USB Hub, $11 with code KKR7ZNJE]

Want Bluetooth audio and handsfree calling in your older car? This little dongle takes the Bluetooth signal from your phone, and retransmits over a 3.5mm AUX connection, or to the FM radio station of your choice. If you go the FM route, the sound quality will take a hit, but it’ll be a truly wireless experience, and probably your best option short of buying an entirely new stereo. We’ve seen deals on similar products before, but rarely for this cheap. [Senbowe SW-BFT-01 Wireless In-Car FM Transmitter with Bluetooth, $11 with code BI25OHDH]

This 55” Vizio M-series 4K TV is one of the single most popular TVs we’ve ever posted, and Dell is offering a screaming deal on it today. You’ll spend $800 up front (which is just $20 more than its all-time low), but you’ll get a bonus $250 Dell promo gift card tossed in for good measure. That’s good for anything Dell sells online, including video games, speaker systems, and of course, computer gear. [Vizio M-Series 55” 4K, $800 + $250 Dell promo gift card]

Note: Make sure you see the gift card in your cart before checkout; these deals can end without warning. The gift card balance is valid for 90 days after purchase.

Not only do you save $20 with this PS4 Uncharted Bundle deal, you get a second DualShock 4 controller as well. Normally, this setup would cost you about $400, making this one of the better PS4 deals we’ve ever seen. [PS4 Uncharted Bundle + Extra Controller, $330]

Steaming your clothes might not get them as crisp as ironing, but it does a decent enough job in a fraction of the time, and for $15, why not? [Pure Enrichment PureSteam Fabric Steamer, $15 with code STEAMR15]
