A couple of Edifier bookshelf speakers, Super Mario Odyssey, and up to 40% off Climb Gear at Backcountry lead of Tuesday’s best deals from around the web.

School is starting back up across the country. Check out of back-to-school roundup, which we’re updating daily, for all of the best deals. Bookmark Kinja Deals and follow us on Twitter to never miss a deal.

Edifier R1280DB | $104 | Amazon

Edifier quietly makes some of the best audio equipment on the market. And right now, Amazon is lowering the price on two bookshelf speakers: Edifier R1280T and the Edifier R1280DB. The big difference between the two is that the Edifier R1280DB offers more options to connect, including Bluetooth. So, it may be weird, but I’d go with the cheaper one if you just want to pair it with a record player.

Just remember, these prices will only stick around for the day or until sold out.


Anker Wireless Vertical Mouse | $15 | Amazon | Promo code ANKER743
Anker Wireless Vertical Mouse | $15 | Amazon | Promo code ANKER743

Whether your current mouse is giving you chronic wrist pain, or you just want to try something different, this new wireless ergonomic vertical mouse from Anker is only $17 today with promo code ANKER743. In addition to the clever design, it even comes with three adjustable DPI settings and forward/back buttons, which are pretty rare at this price level. No wonder a version of it was one of our readers’ favorite work mice last week.


And lo, Tile decreed you can replace your own batteries now, and there was much rejoicing. If you’ve been waiting on a good deal for the new Tiles with replaceable batteries, we find some good deals buried in the couch cushions.

If you just want to dip your toes in the water, you can get a single Tile Mate for $20, or $5 less than usual. The four-pack for $50 is a considerably better deal though, if you have enough uses for them (drop your suggestions in the comments!). You can also get a four pack that includes two Mates and two Tile Slims for $50, but just note that the Tile Slims don’t have replaceable batteries.


UGREEN Portable Apple Watch Charger | $28 | Amazon | Promo code UGREEN944
UGREEN Portable Apple Watch Charger | $28 | Amazon | Promo code UGREEN944

The Apple Watch charging cable is an awkward thing to pack for a trip. For one, it’s probably firmly attached to some kind of dock or stand on your nightstand, and thus easy to forget. For two, the thin cable with a big, heavy puck on the end is a tangling nightmare in your bag.

Enter UGREEN’s portable Apple Watch charger, now down to $28 after you use promo code UGREEN944, the best price we’ve ever seen by $4. It doesn’t have a cable at all, but rather plugs straight into a USB charging port, and balances your watch on top. Smart!


UGREEN 3' MFi-Certified USB-C to Lightning Cable | $6 | Amazon Prime | Promo code UGREEN493. $7 for non-Prime members
UGREEN 3' MFi-Certified USB-C to Lightning Cable | $6 | Amazon Prime | Promo code UGREEN493. $7 for non-Prime members
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Third party USB-C to Lightning cables can finally get Apple’s MFi blessing for faster charging speeds (50% in 30 minutes on the latest iPhones!), and we’ve spotted a deal that brings one down to $6 for Prime members (or $7 for non-Prime members), the best price we’ve ever seen for any of these cables.

UGREEN’s 3' cable supports that magical 18W charging spec when plugged into an USB-C PD charger (like this one!), and you can get it on sale with promo code UGREEN493. Of course, if you own a MacBook from the last few years, this will also let you sync and charge your phone from your computer without a dongle. You probably forgot that was even possible!

Anker PowerCore Slim 10000 PD Battery Pack | $32 | Amazon
Anker PowerCore Slim 10000 PD Battery Pack | $32 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

USB-C Power Delivery battery packs are getting smaller and cheaper, and Anker’s latest and greatest PowerCore is one of the slimmest we’ve seen to date. Despite being just over a half inch thick, you get 10,000mAh of capacity, a 12W USB port, and an 18W Power Delivery port, which is sufficient for phones, tablets, the Nintendo Switch, and even small laptops in a pinch.

The PowerCore Slim 10000 PD also includes Anker’s new trickle charging technology, which allows the battery to charge small devices like Bluetooth headphones that don’t draw enough power to keep most other battery packs “awake.”

Normally $40, the PowerCore Slim 10000 PD is marked down to $32 this week on Amazon, no code required.


Seagate FireCuda 2TB | $65 | Amazon

Seagate’s FireCuda is one of the most popular PS4 replacement hard drives out there, mostly thanks to its built-in 8GB of flash storage that can speed up loading times, and you can get the 2TB model for just $65 today, the best price ever with the exception of Prime Day, when it was $60.

Even if you don’t feel like cracking open your PS4, you could pop this into an inexpensive enclosure like this one, and use it as an external drive over USB.

You probably know Status Audio from the company’s legendary CB-1 over-ear headphones, but the brand’s new Bluetooth earbuds carry on that legacy of sound quality, while letting you finally cut the cord.

Launched last month, we’re big fans of the BT Transfer and BT Structure headphones, and had this to say about them on The Inventory:

If you prefer in-ear monitors, Status has you covered with two different options. The larger BT Structures include over-ear wings for a secure fit, a whopping 12 hours of battery life, and a larger-than-usual 9mm dual driver system that allows them to achieve an impressive depth on the low end without sounding muddy. They’re the best-sounding wireless earbuds I’ve ever tried.

For $10 less, the BT Transfers offer a smaller form factor at the expense of battery life (eight hours instead of 12) and slightly smaller 8mm drivers, though those are still larger than the ~6mm drivers you’d find in most earbuds of this size. To my ears, they sounded nearly identical to the Structures, so I’d choose based on the form factor that’s right for you. Both sets of earbuds are IPX5 water resistant (not great, but good enough for exercise), include Bluetooth 5.0, and sadly, charge over microUSB.

You can now buy either model on Amazon, and our readers can take 20% off with promo code INVENTORY20.


Private Internet Access Old Price Sale | Private Internet Access
Private Internet Access Old Price Sale | Private Internet Access

Back in March, Private Internet Access (our readers’ favorite VPN service) raised its prices for the first time ever. And while our readers can still get an exclusive 3-years for $99 plan, they just lowered their other plans back to their old prices for a limited time.

The reason this is a big deal is that you can renew your membership as many times as you want at whatever price you originally paid. Once the prices go back to normal, you’ll still be locked into the lower rate.

Here are the new (old) promotional prices, along with what you’d normally pay:

  • 1 month: $6.95 (down from $9.99)
  • 1 year: $39.95 (down from $71.88)

Clearly, the annual plan is the sweet spot here if you don’t want to commit to the three-year plan, but $6.95/month for 10 simultaneous connections, clients for just about every conceivable device, and servers in 32 countries (foreign Netflix, anyone?). We aren’t sure when the prices will go back up, so you probably want to lock in your account ASAP.


Arris Networking Gold Box | Amazon

Stop renting your modem from your ISP and shop this one-day Arris sale on Amazon. Depending on your contract and service, you could pick one up for as little as $75 and recoup your losses within a year.

Modems are tricky, because some ISPs make it pretty difficult for you to provide your own and you’ll need to make sure if these Arris models (currently at their lowest prices ever) are compatible with your plan.

I’ve included a few Lifehacker stories below to help you figure it out:

If you want to get the best possible performance, go for the Docsis 3.1 model.

Additionally, this sale also includes routers and a modem-router combo. Just remember, these Arris Modem prices will only stick around for the day or until sold out. So do some quick research and stop paying for unnecessary fees to save yourself cash.

Kids are gearing up to head back to school, but who wants to think about homework and school projects? Instead, you can plan your next vacation, thanks to these Flight Deals From Southwest Airlines on Airfare Watchdog.

The Southwest sale fares are valid for travel on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays beginning in early September and continue through March 4, 2020. Be aware, there are some blackout dates around Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s.

Roundtrip flights, like Nashville to Atlanta, start out at $98, while one-way flights, like from Burbank to San Jose, cost $49. To get these discounted tickets, you must purchase them by Thursday, August 22, 2019, at 11:59 pm PDT.

Have you ever touched your hair after you’ve washed it and it didn’t feel clean? That feeling might mean you have build up in your hair. It could be dead skin or product that didn’t get fully washed out. If you need to get a real deep clean of your hair, the HEETA Hair Scalp Massager can help get the crud out.

Aside from helping eliminate product build-up, the massage brush can also relieve itchiness and can promote blood flow to your scalp. The black, purple, and blue brush is a few dollars off and is currently $6.


GPCA Carabiner | Kickstarter
Gif: Kickstarter

On an infinite timescale, there will eventually be a multitool variant of every conceivable consumer product released on Kickstarter, but this versatile carabiner from the folks who brought us a pretty incredible pen in 2017 makes more sense than most.

In addition to acting as a locking carabiner, for all of your carabiner needs, this product packs a box cutter, a couple of screwdrivers, and a combination bottle opener/pry bar that can help you take nails out of wood. They also advertise it as a pair of metal knuckles if you need to fight a bear (literally!), but I suppose that’s true of any carabiner.

Image for article titled Tuesday's Best Deals: Edifier Speakers, Super Mario Odyssey, Backcountry Gear, and More

The carabiner form factor actually makes a ton of sense as a box cutter or pry bar, since its large size gives you a more leverage and a sturdier grip than you’d get on most minimal multitools. I used an early prototype to open a few boxes, and while that’s never the most difficult task, I felt like I could do it all day without my hand getting fatigued.

The GPCA carabiner is now up on Kickstarter, with super earlybird pricing starting at $29 for an aluminum version, or $39 for stainless steel.

50% Off 22 oz and 32 oz Tumblers in Black, Graphite, Cobalt, and Pacific | Hydro Flask | Promo code TUMBLER-4Q8RG9

Hydro Flask, the maker of our readers’ favorite water bottle, also makes a pretty great vacuum-insulated tumbler, and today, that tumbler is 50% off in select colors that the brand has opted to retire. You can score a 22- or 32-oz tumbler in the following (admittedly timeless, though apparently out of style?) hues: Black, Graphite, Cobalt, and Pacific. Use promo code TUMBLER-4Q8RG9 to slurp down the savings, and start keeping your cold drinks icy for 24 hours and hot drinks steamy for up to 6 hours.


If you’re planning a trip to the Big Apple over Labor Day weekend for sightseeing, shopping, or the U.S. Open, you can stay in the unique, futuristic Yotel micro hotel for 25% off with promo code LABOR25 (valid on any three-night stay between Tuesday, August 27 and Monday, September 2).

Yotel’s rooms are small, yes, but these aren’t coffin-like sleeping pods or anything too adventurous. You still get full-sized (adjustable!) beds, private bathrooms, a TV, Wi-Fi, and even an iron and ironing board. They’re hotel rooms, basically! Just with a little less space to walk around than you might be used to.

Yotel New York also features a rooftop terrace, a gym, a central location in Hell’s Kitchen on 42nd and 10th, and even a freakin’ robotic luggage valet in the lobby.

Note: To get the deal, you’ll want to enter the promo code before you search for availability. Select promo code from the special rate dropdown menu, and enter LABOR25 to see the discounted rate. I saw $184/night for a standard queen room, which is about as good as it gets in Manhattan.

Hands down, Nespresso is the easiest way to make decent espresso at home, and their high-end VertuoPlus model will make regular coffee too.

This model, made by De’Longhi, comes in Ferrari red, has great reviews, and can make lots of different drink sizes: Espresso (1. 35 oz. ), double Espresso (2. 7 oz.), Gran Lungo (5 oz. ), Coffee (7. 7 oz. ) and alto (14 oz. ). Today’s $99 deal is about $20-$40 less than usual, and the best price we’ve seen since the holiday season.


Running to the pet store to pick up food every time you run out is never convenient. That’s why Chewy is such a lifesaver. And don’t get me started on prescription diets like Royal Canin or Science Diet, which are expensive to restock too. Right now, you can get $15 off your order of $49 or more at Chewy, so long as you have any prescription food or prescription medication in your cart.

To get your discount, use the code CHEWYRX at checkout. To be eligible for this discount, you cannot have purchased Rx food or Rx meds through Chewy before.

KitchenAid 3-Piece Pasta Roller & Cutter Set | $108 | Daily Steals | Promo code KJKTCHNAID

You could live your whole life cooking boxed Barilla pasta, and never once realize how fun and rewarding it can be to make your own. This Kitchenaid pasta roller and cutter set attaches to the accessory port on any KitchenAid mixer, and lets you create your own noodles with multiple shapes in just minutes. $108 is a full $52 less than Amazon’s current price, so I’d call this deal <kisses fingers like an Italian chef> delizioso.

You’ll probably want a drying rack to go with it.


Marpac Dohm Classic (White or Black) | $31 | Amazon
Marpac Dohm Classic (White or Black) | $31 | Amazon

The quest for the perfect night’s rest often involves a brand new mattress, some memory foam pillows, and a weighted blanket. But I have a lot of friends who swear by a white noise machine, and right now is a perfect time to try ‘em out.

Amazon’s Gold Box is offering a couple of Marpac Dohm sound machines for a low $31. This deal is only going to last until the end of the day, or until sold out. So get yours.


I can’t decide if Amazon selling its own motor oil is dystopian or convenient, but in any event, it’s affordable. Right now, you can save a few bucks off the regular price on five quarts of AmazonBasics conventional, synthetic, or synthetic high mileage motor oil, all of which will set you back less than $20.

Oddly enough, Amazon does not make its own oil filters to go with it, but you can enter your car’s make and model on this page to find one that’ll work.

From the NES days all the way up to Breath of the Wild, Legend of Zelda games have featured some of the most stirring, evocative, and recognizable scores in all of gaming. You don’t need any further proof than the fact that there’s literally a touring orchestra show dedicated solely to the series.

Friends, it’s officially lawn game season, and Kan Jam is a dynamic, active alternative to your standard cornhole and ladder toss. But don’t worry, you can still hold a drink in one hand.

Teams of two line up opposite each other next to two special cans (included), just like Cornhole. One team member tosses a frisbee at a can, and the other attempts to bop it out of the air, and onto or into the can for varying numbers of points. It combines two great activities: throwing a frisbee, and slapping things out of the air, so you’ve got a recipe for fun.

This was one of our readers’ favorite lawn games in a recent Co-Op, and today’s $30 deal is about $8 less than usual. Have fun!

BauBax Travel Shoes | Kickstarter

BauBax has been turning out Kickstarter hits in the travel apparel space for a few years now, and while their jackets and pants put the focus on utility and versatility, their new travel shoes keep things simpler.

Constructed from natural materials like merino wool, coconut, and bamboo, BauBax’s travel shoes are designed around the things that matter most when you’re up and about, like odor resistance, breathability, grip, comfort, and perhaps most importantly of all, weight.

While the materials used are the same across the line, you can preorder your shoes in a variety of colors and styles, including loafers, sneakers, and slip-ons, and all of them are available laced or unlaced. They all look great, though I think you’d want one of the laced options if you’re planning on doing a lot of walking in them.

Preorders are open now starting at $89, with shipping expected in December.

Intex has quietly been making inflatable versions of...everything. And while you might be most familiar with their novelty pool floats, today’s deal is an inflatable you can use all year long.

Yes. Behold the inflatable sectional. Gaze upon it, and despair.

I’m by no means suggesting that this should be your main couch. But it could act as additional seating (both indoors and out) when you have lots of guests coming over. You could bring it to a friend’s house. You could set it up in the parking lot for a tailgate. It’s down to $50 today on Amazon, within a few cents of an all-time low, so at least when people give you weird looks about it, you can laugh nervously and tell them you bought it ironically.

Butcher Box just added a new meat to its arsenal: wild-caught Atlantic sea scallops! Yes, the chicken nuggets of the sea can be delivered to your front door, and if you sign up for a new membership right now, you’ll get a pound of scallops and a pack of bacon thrown in for free, in addition to whatever else would have been in your box anyway.

You may be tempted to make bacon-wrapped scallops, and I wouldn’t blame you if you did, but there’s nothing wrong with enjoying them separately, on their own merits.

Your bonus come bundled with any of Butcher Box’s pre-selected boxes, which are priced at $129 for 24 servings, or $238 for 48 servings, which can be delivered every 30 or 60 days. For a nominal surcharge, you can also build a completely custom box, with your choices of proteins.

If Amazon’s acquisition of eero didn’t scare you off the pioneer in mesh networking, the retailer is celebrating its new networking play-thing with big discounts across the board.

Get an Eero and an extra Eero Beacon for $239 (a $60 discount), an eero and two beacons for $319 (an $80 discount), or for the largest and most densely constructed houses, three full-fat eero routers for $399 (a $100 discount). To be clear, If you live in a one bedroom apartment, you don’t need any of these, but if you find that a single router doesn’t get you a reliable Wi-Fi signal in every part of your house, mesh systems like these are a godsend.

That’s $30 less than usual, and if, somewhere down the road, you decide to buy a smart lock, you’ll have everything you need to use Amazon Key.

Tiny car chargers like this one have been massive hits with our readers for years, because they have that built-into-your-car look, but charge your phone much faster than the piddly USB port your car probably includes.

Now, Anker has a mini car charger of its own, it can charge two phones at 12W simultaneously, and it’s down to $11 (from $15) today on Amazon.

Instant Pot Max | $150 | Amazon

There’s a new king of the Instant Pot world, and it just got its first significant discount ever.

The Instant Pot Max is the first Instant Pot to achieve steady 15 PSI pressure cooking, comparable to stovetop models. Previous models have maxed out at around 11.6 PSI, and the added pressure means that your food will cook even faster (who knew that was possible?). It can even do high pressure canning, the first electric pressure cooker to achieve USDA approval for that purpose.

Update: Sorry, it’s “positioned for approval,” but it’s not official yet.

The Max also comes with a revamped touchscreen interface—it’s come a long way from the cheap-looking bubble buttons of the DUO—and a touchscreen button to automatically vent your pressure. You can even set it to pulse, so you don’t have to stand at the counter hitting a button repeatedly for five minutes.

The Max came out earlier this year for $200, and it’s basically stayed there for the most part. Today though, you can pick it up for $150, easily an all-time low.

Jackbox Party Packs are a great addition to any party, and now you can get a bunch of them for not that much money with Humble’s latest bundle.

As usual, you can pledge as much or as little money as you want (as long as it’s at least a dollar), but you’ll only unlock every title by giving $15 or more. Games include all of the first four Party Packs, a bunch of volumes of the classic You Don’t Know Jack trivia game, and a handful of other standalone games as well.

Unfortunately, Party Pack 5 (the best one) isn’t included, but there are still a bunch of great party games in the other four.

If you’re looking for a new soap, you’re going to want to get Dr. Bronner’s 5-Piece Sampler Gift Set while it’s on sale for $22 on Amazon. It is a cult-favorite and a couple of bucks off at that price. You can find your preferred scent from this sampler, as it includes almond, eucalyptus, tea tree, lavender, and peppermint.

Zach Custer from The Inventory had to say about Dr. Bronner’s:

Dr. Bronner’s is now my default for a handful of cleaning needs, and a trusted fail safe when another bottle runs dry. Dr. Bronner’s hasn’t replaced all my cleaning supplies, but it’s definitely reduced the excess. And since it’s all natural, I don’t have to think twice about using it, it’s basically always safe. Just remember to Dilute! Dilute! Ok!
