Top Deals

I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if hundreds of Star Wars gifts cried out and were suddenly discounted. Amazon has taken a lightsaber to the prices of a sarlacc pit’s worth of Star Wars merch for one day only. Odds are, you’ll be able to find the perfect thing for that budding Jedi in your life and yourself too, but never tell me the odds.

Here are a few great gift ideas, but head over to Amazon to see the rest.

Not content to let the holiday season pass by without selling you two dozen products, Anker’s back with another batch of awesome promo codes. Stock up for yourself, or turn them all into gifts; you can’t go wrong with anything here.

There are too many new deals to list them all here, but you can find all of the links and promo codes on this post.

When it comes to finding the right pair of shoes that won’t hurt your feet after an hour but are still pretty okay looking, Rockport should be on your radar. Amazon has a few styles on sale right now that, if you’re in need of some new kicks, you should take advantage of.

One of the best gifts you can give someone is a cure for battery anxiety, and this 22,000mAh battery pack from RAVPower should do the trick for just about everyone.

Today only, you can pick one up for an all-time low $30 in either black or white. The battery’s sufficient to charge smartphones at least five times, and can even juice up an iPad Mini twice. And since there’s plenty of power to go around, you also get three ports to share. Just note that like all Gold Box deals, this price is only available today, or until depleted.

The next two months are a treacherous time for your waistline, and I’m not just talking about election night stress-eating and binge drinking. That’s where the Sweethome-recommended Withings Body comes in.

The Withings Body Composition Wi-Fi Scale looks like any other bathroom scale at first glance, but it can automatically sync your vitals to your phone (including Apple’s HealthKit), track your indoor air quality (what?!), and even measure your heart rate. It typically sells for around $130, but Amazon has it for $68 right now after you clip the 25% coupon, which is by far the best price we’ve ever seen.

Update: The $112 deal is sold out, but the $30 gift card deal is still alive.

Last week’s $30 gift card deal on the Xbox One Elite controller was good, but if it wasn’t quite enough for you to make the leap, how’s a flat $37 discount sound? $112's still a lot of money, but it might just be worth it.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided was available for $25 around Black Friday. But if that wasn’t enough to convince you, how’s $20 sound? If you’re still on the fence, be sure to check out Kotaku’s review.

If you still have any TVs without a Chromecast attached, Google’s official eBay store will sell you one at a $10 discount today. Plus, Google will throw in 90 days of unlimited Google Play music, 75% off a movie rental of your choice, and even three months of HBO Now (new users only) for free.

It’s time to get started on holiday decorating, but you can save money, not to mention time, by taking advantage of Amazon’s Star Shower Motion deal.

If you aren’t familiar, these genius little gadgets use lasers to project red and green lights onto the front of your house, giving the appearance of holiday spirit without the hassle of actually hanging up outdoor lights. We’ve seen a few deals lately on on these things, but this is the original, as-seen-on-TV Star Shower that started the trend last year, now marked down to $34, which is actually $1 less than Cyber Monday.

If you’ve beaten your current phone or tablet case all to hell, you can treat yourself to a new one from Speck during their big holiday sale. For a limited time, they’re marking down every smartphone case they sell by 30%, and every tablet case by 40%, plus free two day shipping on all orders. They still aren’t the cheapest smartphone cases you can buy, but they’re among the best.

iPhone and iPad owners can never own enough Lightning cables, especially when you can get two for $10. As an aside, Apple still charges $19 for a single cable.

Clip-on smartphone lenses are fun little stocking stuffers, and this set from Aukey is marked down to a measly $5 today with promo code UBVIXNZ2. We never really see these things dip below $10, so this really is a spectacular discount.

With physical buttons and a touch screen, the ability to control up to 15 devices, a handy charging cradle, and more compatibility than any other brand, the Harmony Ultimate One is a worthy addition to your home and home theater, and today’s $100 deal is easily the best we’ve ever seen.

Best Buy also has the discontinued Harmony 700 marked down to $45, but its screen isn’t touch-capable, and it can only control eight devices.

If you can never find your remote, but always have your smartphone handy, the Pronto smart remote allows your phone to control up to eight home theater devices at once. This thing has been around for awhile, but $20 is the best price we’ve seen.

$5 is a good price for a fire-starting paracord survival bracelet, but it’s a fantastic deal for two. Hopefully you’re never in a situation where you need one of these, but it’s not a bad idea to strap one on before you go hiking or camping.

Can you believe that before the advent of detergent pods, humans used to measure and pour laundry detergent liquid into a washing machine manually? I don’t know how our ancestors got by. Anyway, if you’re running low, Amazon’s taking $2 off an assortment of Tide PODS and Gain detergent packs today. Just add your favorite to your cart, and you’ll see the discount at checkout.

If you demand more from your wrist wearable than just counting steps, the well-reviewed ASUS ZenWatch 2 is marked down to just $95 on Amazon, today only.

This particular version of the ZenWatch 2 features a quick charging technology that allows you to give it a 60% charge in just 15 minutes. That means instead of charging it overnight, you could wear it to track your sleep and wake you up with a silent alarm, and fill up the battery while you shower and get dressed.

Cuisinart’s 3-in-1 Griddler is one of the most versatile kitchen appliances you can own, and it can be yours today for just $60.

Why stop with just a griddle, grill, and panini press? Add the optional waffle iron plates to your cart, and get even more use out of your new toy.

We see 4-packs of stainless steel drinking straws for $5 or $6 with some regularity, but a 12-pack for $10 is far less common. That includes a half dozen bent and straight straws, plus two cleaning wands. Whether you’re starting your collection, or adding to the family, this is a fantastic bargain.

Hands down, Nespresso is the easiest way to make decent espresso at home, and their high-end VertuoLine model will make regular coffee too. The whole set is down to an all-time low $113 on Amazon today, complete with an Aeroccino Plus milk frother. That’s far and away the best price we’ve ever seen on this model, and a great gift idea for the coffee drinker in your life.

Sewing is one of those things everyone should at least try to learn, and this popular Singer sewing machine is marked down to just $85 today as part of a Gold Box deal.

The Singer 4411 includes 11 built in stitches, a fully automatic buttonhole mode, and the ability to do 1100 stitches a minute. If this seems familiar, that’s because it was a Gold Box deal back in October, except that time, it was $102. What I’m saying is, today’s discount is easily the best Amazon’s ever listed, and it could very well sell out early.

The Philips Norelco Multigroom is actually three shaving tools in one: A beard trimmer, a hair cutter, and a body groomer. No matter what you’re using it for, you get your choice of 17 different length settings, and a battery that lasts for over an hour per charge. Today’s $40 deal is $25 less than usual, and the best price Amazon’s ever listed.

It’s actually part of a larger Gold Box deal that includes some proper Philips shavers, plus a couple of grooming tools for women. No matter which one appeals to you, just remember that these prices are only available today, or until sold out.

The Amopé is an electric foot file that literally files down the gross calluses on your feet until they slightly resemble that of a modern human. Today only, the Amopé Gift Set, which includes the foot file, extra roller heads, foot cream, and a bag for only $35.

In case you missed out during Deals Week, several of Amazon’s most popular gadgets are back on sale for one last push during the holiday shopping season.

The Echoes and Paperwhite are back down to the same prices at Black Friday, while the $40 Fire Tablet deal is $7 higher than it was before. Interestingly, the Fire HD 10 actually didn’t get a Black Friday discount, so today’s $200 deal is your first chance to save on that model in quite some time.

If you’re still wrestling with a terrible inkjet printer at home, do yourself a solid and pick up the reliable Brother HL-2380DW monochrome laser printer today for just $100 today.

While it doesn’t print in color, it more than makes up for that with the ability to spit out 32 pages per minute, duplex printing, and inexpensive toner cartridges that can last for years without being replaced. We’ve posted a lot of Brother deals in the past, and we’ve heard nothing but good things from readers about them. Plus, this particular model has a sterling 4.4 star review average on Amazon, a built-in scanner, and AirPrint and Google Cloud Print support, so it should serve you well for years.

Tile is the ultimate gift for your friend who can’t stop losing her things, and the super-thin Tile Slim is down to its lowest price ever today, whether you buy one, four, or eight.

Around Black Friday, we saw a deal on the keychain-friendly Tile Mate, and the Tile Slim is basically the same product, but with a larger footprint, and a case that’s as thin as two credit cards.

If you aren’t familiar, you just stick these in your wallet, attach them to a laptop, keep them in your car, slide them into your luggage...anything you frequently misplace, and the Tile app on your phone can ping them over Bluetooth and cause them to beep. And if your lost item is outside of your phone’s Bluetooth range, it’ll show up on a map automatically any time another Tile user comes into range.

Anker just released a new line of essential oil diffusers and humidifiers with built-in accent lights, and they’re discounting the 100ml model to an all-time low $19 today.

Don’t forget the oils!

When you cook with olive oil, you have three choices: You can pour imprecisely, you can make a measuring spoon dirty, or you can use Vremi’s $18 olive oil dispenser, which measures out a precise amount of oil before you pour it. I know which one I would choose. Needless to say, this would also make a great gift for the cook in your life.

The Cabeau Evolution was your favorite travel pillow (by a long shot), and you can save 20% on yours today with promo code KIUKSYD8.

Unlike cheaper travel pillows that you have to inflate with air, the Evolution is made of memory foam, and wraps all the way around your neck to provide support no matter what direction your head falls when you nod off. You won’t win any fashion awards while you’re using it, but you won’t care, because you’ll be asleep.

We’ve been waiting for a deal on these ever since the Co-Op over six months ago, and this is the first we’ve ever seen (though there have been a couple on the Cabeau Evolution Cool). There’s a good chance you’ll be making a plane trip or long car journey for the holidays in the near future, so there’s never been a better time to splurge on one of these. You even get to pick from all of the available colors (sold by Cabeau).

You’ve got two choices when it comes to checking on the progress of your dinner in the oven. You could poke at it with a kitchen thermometer until you think it’s done, or you could sit on the couch and wait for your phone to tell you when it’s ready.

The highly-rated iDevices iGrill Mini Thermometer uses a leave-in probe to monitor the progress of your meal on the grill, on the stovetop, or even in the oven, and connects to your iPhone or Android device over Bluetooth to alert you as soon as it reaches the proper temperature. I actually gave a slightly different iDevices thermometer to my dad for his birthday a few years ago, and it worked as advertised. Today’s $24 price tag is an all-time low, so be sure to grab yours before this deal overcooks.

Pint glasses are nature’s perfect drinking vessels for any kind of cold beverage, and Amazon will sell you 10 for just $12 right now. Cheers to that.

Want to get caught up on Star Wars before Rogue One arrives in theaters? Amazon’s marked the digital six-film bundle (sorry, The Force Awakens fans) down to $69 in HD, or about $16 less than usual.

In addition to the films themselves, you’ll get access to bonus features for each movie. The best part though? You can watch them any time you want on any device that supports Amazon Instant Video. We don’t know how long this will last though, so lock in your price before Amazon alters the deal.

Perfect for the film buff on your holiday shopping list, if you buy a $50 Regal Cinemas gift card, you’ll get a $10 bonus code via email. If you keep that code for yourself, we won’t tell.

Anker’s home goods brand, Eufy, put its new set of copper string lights back on sale today for their lowest price ever, complete with adjustable brightness and multiple effects. A version of these lights without the remote was on sale for $7 last week, but the remote’s convenience and added lighting options make it well worth the price premium.

Hot off the heels of its $10-off-$25 physical book sale last weekend, Amazon’s now taking $5 off any $15 book purchase (including multiple, cheaper books) with promo code GIFTBOOK.

Just like last time, this deal excludes Kindle titles and audiobooks, but if there are any commemorative coffee table-type books or collector’s editions that you’ve been eyeing, this is a great opportunity. Just choose carefully; you can only use the code once per account.
