Update: Sold out on Amazon, but you can get the same set refurbished for $40 on Newegg.

It sounds too good to be true, but this entire 5.1 channel Logitech speaker set is only $50 brand new right now. That’s a match for the popular set’s all time low price, and a fantastic price anyone who wants to experience 5.1 surround sound on a budget. [Logitech Z506 5.1 Channel Speakers, $50]

Today on Groupon, you can get a voucher for two Fandango movies tickets (worth up to $26 total) for just $16. Depending on where you live, this might not actually be a deal, but if tickets to your local movie theater cost more than $8, this is a great chance to save up for popcorn. [Two Fandango Movie Tickets, $16]

The humble and inexpensive cast iron skillet is one of most important pieces of cooking gear you can own, and Lodge’s highly-rated 10” model is back down to $15 again on Amazon. If you don’t own one, you should have no hesitation. [Lodge LCS3 Pre-Seasoned 10-inch Cast-Iron Chef’s Skillet, $15]

While you’re there, pick up some cast iron scrapers for cleaning, and a silicone handle cover to protect your hands.

Whether you drive a tiny sedan or a lane-hogging SUV, there’s an Allen Sports bike rack for you in today’s Amazon Gold Box. Just be sure to lock in your order soon, before the deals expire or sell out. [Select Allen Sports Deluxe Bike Racks on Sale at Amazon]

This discounted flash drives doesn’t look much anything special at first blush, but hit one button, and it transforms into a tiny wireless media server, allowing you to pull up files on any of your devices, including iPhones and iPads. That’s perfect for streaming files to a space-constrained tablet, or dumping excess photos while you’re on vacation. [SanDisk Connect 32GB Flash Drive, $30]

Whether you spend a lot of time camping, or just want to be prepared for various apocalyptic scenarios, the LifeStraw Family 1.0 can purify nearly 5,000 gallons of water in its lifetime with no electricity, iodine, chlorine, or other chemicals. That’s enough water to last a family of four for three years. [LifeStraw Family 1.0 Water Purifier, $58]

Despite their low price, Monoprice’s 8320 enhanced bass earbuds have gained a cult following, as well as a Lifehacker Hive Five nod. If you want to hear what all the fuss is about, you can score a pair for just $5 shipped today. I’ve owned several pairs, and they really do sound remarkably good for the price. [Monoprice 8320 Headphones, $5]

Logitech’s K410 wireless keyboard/trackpad combo is ideal for controlling a home theater PC from across the living room, or an office computer from across the conference room. If you need that in your life, you can pick one up for just $20 today. [Logitech LivingRoom K410 Wireless Keyboard, $20]

We’re big fans of desktop USB charging hubs, and you can choose from two solid options today from Aukey and iClever. The Aukey charger is a great deal on its own at $14, but the iClever option comes with an extra port, plus a four-port car charger for just $12 more. At those prices, you could keep one of these at your nightstand, your travel bag, and your desk at work.

Aukey 40W / 8A 5 Ports USB Desktop Charging Station Wall Charger(Black) ($14) | Amazon | Use code MA3LSLPJ

Cuisinart’s Round Classic waffle maker was one of your five favorite waffle irons, and you can get a refurb today for just $20.

I probably make fresh waffles in my waffle iron every other weekend or so, but in between, I’ve used it to make hash browns, pressed sandwiches, and even churros. Lifehacker has a ton of other suggestions too, including mozzarella sticks, 90-second cookies, pre-packaged cinnamon rolls, and even crispy bacon. So you see, calling this thing a waffle iron is practically a misnomer. [Refurb Cuisinart Round Classic Waffle Iron, $20]

We see $20 Bluetooth speakers with some regularity, but the Urge Basics Cuatro has particularly good reviews, and comes in five different colors (the four above, plus orange). No matter which one you like the best, they’re all just $20 right now, an all-time low. [Urge Basics Cuatro Bluetooth Speaker, $20]

Jawbone’s Big Jambox is several years old at this point, but it’s still one of the best oversized Bluetooth speakers you can buy, and a refurb will only set you back $130 today, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen. [Refurb Jawbone Big Jambox, $130]

Today on Amazon, you can pick up the first six X-Men films in a single Blu-ray box set for just $22, an all-time low. [X-Men and the Wolverine 6-Film Collection, $22]

By now, most of you probably have a USB battery pack or two to keep your phones charged, and that’s great! But I’m willing to bet most of them won’t start your car if its battery dies.

The $60 RAVPower compact car jump starter has your standard pair of USB ports and a 12,000mAh built-in battery, but it also ships with a set of removable jumper cables to jolt your car’s engine to life in a pinch. Once you’re up and running, it’ll even recharge itself via an included 15V car charger, so it never even has to leave your glove box.

Hopefully you don’t need to use this often, but it’s one of those things you’ll be really glad you bought when the time comes. [RAVPower 500A Peak Current Portable Car Jump Starter Power Bank, $60 with code 9EBVGO2G]

Different lighting temperatures are ideal for different tasks and different times of the day, and this desk lamp can adapt to fit your needs with the flick of a switch.

The OxyLED T120 can output a cooler 5000k color temperature when you need to stay awake or see colors accurately, or a warmer 3000k temperature in the evening, when you want a more relaxing environment. If your eyes are shedding tears of joy at the thought, you can save $14 when you buy it from Amazon today with code 14OFT120. [OxyLED T120 Dimmable Eye-care LED Desk Lamp with Cool & Warm Color Light, $36 with code 14OFT120]

It’s not a cash discount, but getting a free extra controller (which you would have bought anyway), and three months of PlayStation Plus with your purchase of a PS4 is basically just as good.

I love bundles like this, because controllers don’t really depreciate like games, and you’ll use them for the entire life of the system. No tax for most. [PS4 + The Last of Us + 3 Months PlayStation Plus + Extra Controller, $400]

Today on eBay, you can grab an iPad Air 2 128GB for the same price as the 64GB model. If you’ve been thinking of picking one of these up, that’s you basically just doubled your storage for free. You can even choose from all three colors. [iPad Air 2 128GB, $600]
