Top Deals

If you’re looking for a powerful vacuum that’ll suck up all that pet hair, but don’t want to spend a fortune, look no further than Amazon’s deal on the Hoover WindTunnel 3 Pro Pet. On sale for $75, you not only get a great bagless vacuum, it comes with the Pet Tool Pack, which includes a pet turbo tool, a pet upholstery tool, and a telescopic extension wand.

Indochino is your favorite custom clothing company, and this week they’re offering Kinja Deals readers their best shirt pricing ever. $279 gets you five shirts with promo code KINJA5. Read more about the deal here.

Some of our peers have Melania’d the discount we launched with Indochino back in May, so we can’t call it an exclusive anymore. However, it’s still the best pricing they’ve ever offered, so if you missed out last time or want more suits, here’s your chance. Read more here.

If you can’t find the time to get to the gym every day, this under-desk elliptical lets you squeeze in some light exercise while you fill out your TPS reports. This typically sells for $170 on Amazon, and today’s $100 Gold Box deal is the best price we’ve ever seen.

The complete Firefly DVD is still available for an all-time low $13, but if you’re ready to chuck physical media out into the black, you can buy the full series (season) for $10 on Amazon and iTunes right now.

If you want a Big Green Egg charcoal grill, but don’t want to cash in your 401(k) to buy one, this Char-Griller alternative is down to an all-time low $288 today, and a great investment for meat lovers everywhere.

The Char-Griller Akorn Kamado Kooker features a 306 square inch cast iron cooking surface (which is most similar to the $829 large Big Green Egg), and traps heat inside a heavily-insulated stainless steel body. Our deal researcher, Corey, owns a BGE, and I asked him about it on Slack:

And I use my BGE for about 70% of meat meals.

Probably 90% during the warm months.

Best Father’s Day gift I’ll ever get.

Lana jokes that she’s the one who benefits most because I cook on it all the time.

Worth the price just for its ability to cook pizza, IMO.

But pork chops, lions, tenderloin are beyond incredible on it.

Obviously, this isn’t the “real thing,” but the consensus among Amazon reviewers is that it’s at least nearly as good, which sounds like a decent compromise considering it’s only about 1/3 of the price, and comes with a stable cart and folding shelves, both of which you’d need to buy separately with the Egg.

We see $10 off deals on PlayStation Plus just about every week, but today...are you sitting down? Today, you can save $11.

Running low on digital storage space, or just want to start keeping better backups? Amazon’s marked the 2TB WD Elements external drive to $70, which is about as low at that capacity ever gets.

Fried foods are delicious. Fried foods will kill you. These are the laws of our cruel existence, and generally-speaking, there’s no avoiding them. I’m not going to tell you that cooking foods with this $60 air fryer is healthy, but Chefman claims that it uses 80% less oil than conventional deep frying, resulting in less trans fat in your favorite meals.

If you enjoy eating at Chili’s, Macaroni Grill, Maggiano’s, or On The Border, this discounted Brinker gift card is basically a free entree.

Another huge sale from Timbuk2 brings a ton of their excellent bags down to hard-to-resist levels. Be sure to let us know what you pick up in the comments.

The “midway” colorway of one of your five favorite carry-ons is down to $159.

A few colors of your favorite messenger bag, the Commute/Command lines, are also discounted.

Sporting a lower price and a built-in touchscreen, the GoPro Hero4 Silver might actually a better choice than the Hero4 Black for most consumers. Today on GoPro’s eBay storefront, you can get a refurb for just $244, the best price we’ve seen. And since you’re purchasing it direct from GoPro, it’ll still be backed by a one year warranty.

The extremely versatile and reliable Timex Ironman watches are under $25 today only on Amazon. Water resistant of up to around 300 feet, take these on a few laps around the pool and cool off during this Heat Dome without worrying about how much time you’re spending in the water.

The Logitech G502 was your choice for best gaming mouse (though you don’t need to be a gamer to appreciate its benefits), and the upgraded Proteus Spectrum model (which includes fully adjustable backlighting) is on sale for an all-time low $60 today.

The marquee spec here is the DPI range of 200-12,000, adjustable on the fly. There are also five easily movable and removable weights, and 11 customizable buttons, along with the classic Logitech dual-mode scroll wheel. Mechanical microswitches and a braided cable are also nice touches.

Update: Sold out.

These cheap LED lights can stick directly into your grass to light a path to your front door, and since they include built-in solar panels, you won’t have to run any wires or replace any batteries. $18 for a 2-pack is one of the best deals we’ve seen on a product like this.

People keep saying that ethernet is dead, but every time we post a good deal on an ethernet switch, they fly off the virtual shelves. This one’s so good that it’s already somewhat backordered, so log onto Amazon and lock in your order before it’s totally unplugged.

If you’ve never checked out Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale, you’re missing out on some pretty awesome savings. The retailer puts a bunch of Fall and Winter styles on sale way before they go into the stores. Once the sale is over, you’ll only be able to get them for full price, so you’d better get on it.

Restaurant Week is back with 3-course lunches and dinners for $29 and $42 respectively. It’s a great excuse to try some new restaurants, but you can save even more (always) by maximizing your credit card rewards.

Amex is offering up to four $5 credits when you spend $35 or more on restaurant week meals, while Chase Freedom happens to be in the middle of their 5% back on dining rotating quarter. You have to manually activate both these offers.

So where’s the threshold? If you value your 5% back on Chase at face value (Ultimate Rewards points are actually worth more or or less depending on how you redeem them), your check needs to exceed $100 to get more from your Chase Freedom, which isn’t much of a stretch!

2200mAh is about as small as USB battery packs get, but this one includes a built-in Lightning connector so you can plug it directly into the bottom of your iPhone.

The Shark Navigator Lift-Away is one of your favorite affordable vacuums, and you can get a refurb from Amazon today for $90, or $46 less than buying a new one.

If your home or apartment doesn’t have screen doors installed, this easy-to-install magnetic curtain will achieve the same effect, meaning you can let in some fresh air, while keeping out the bugs.

Everyone needs a kitchen scale, and this $10 model from Etekcity is notable for its detachable bowl design.

Tool collection seen better days? Everything you see above, plus a carrying case, is on sale for $99 today.

It’s a scientific fact that every outdoor space looks better with copper string lights, and while $30 isn’t a particularly low price for a 66' strand with 200 bulbs, this set does include a remote that can power them on and off, and even make them dim, pulse, and strobe on demand.

You never want to be in a situation where you need a solar and hand crank-powered weather radio with a flashlight and USB port for charging your phone, but you probably should buy it just in case. This one also includes a 130 lumen flashlight, and even an ultrasonic dog whistle.

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 $80 (refurbished) 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.

Hopefully you never need a dash cam, but owning one can really save your bacon in the result of an accident. This affordable TaoTronics model has all of the features most people need, and you can score one today for just $63.

That price gets you 1080p recording, night vision, auto on/off, and a g-force sensor to automatically lock your footage in the event of an accident. Now go film some meteors.

If you still haven’t watched Firefly, or just want to own a physical copy for posterity, the complete Blu-ray is down to $13 on Amazon, the best price ever listed. Shiny!

You’ve heard of Automatic’s smart driving assistant, but if $80-$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.
