TODAY’S BEST TECH DEALS
Sure, there are a few new iPhones you can pre-order now, but your old phone’s probably doing just fine, sans the wearing battery that leaves you hunting for the charger last-minute. Rather than dropping a bunch of cash on a new phone, a portable charger can give you enough juice to get through a day out in nature or running errands without cleaning out your wallet. Right now, Aukey’s 20,000mAh portable charger is down to $28, saving you $32, by clipping the on-site coupon. Grab your phone and charge it up, wherever you go, today.
Maybe you need a new TV. But you probably don’t need a big TV that can double as a picture frame when you’re not getting your binge on. Still, if there’s no talking you out of it, this 55" 4k TV from Samsung comes wrapped in a frame that might look just fine on your wall. Framed TVs seem a bit goofy, but hey, do your thing. The 65" version is also discounted 25%.
There’s a good chance you know someone who has a pair of AirPods, and you have been wanting to be a part of the group. Thanks to Prime Day, there’s a good chance you can be.
At $115, Apple’s AirPods with Wired Charging Case are the lowest they’ve ever been. Especially if 2020 is the year you are upgrading to the newest iPhone 12 line, these will perfectly compliment the device, with its touch controls and sensors that pause tracks when you take an AirPod out.
Tired of scrolling through the news every night? Maybe a Kindle may help you unwind after a long day without having to slog through Tweets and articles that might just bum you out. Consider the Amazon’s Kindle Paperwhite, which is waterproof and has a lit display for night-time reading. Typically, it costs $130, but right now it’s down to $85, so grab it while you can.
Whether you just need a quick top up on your earbuds or you’re getting the MacBook ready for a long day, AUKEY’s 2-port Omina charger is the ticket. It has two USB-C ports with Power Delivery, offering 65W of juice between the two for $26, a special Prime Day price.
I’ve tested Mpow products in the past and was always pleasantly surprised at the value to price ratio. They’re quality without breaking the bank. A Prime Day treat from the company is their M30 IPX8 Bluetooth 5.0 Earbuds. They’re just $20 when you clip the coupon and use the code S79Z7QLT.
$20 is a great price for an extra set of earbuds. If you’re running errands or just running and you don’t want to take your most expensive buds on the go these are for you. Quick to pair and easy to bounce between tunes and calls. The M30's are noise-canceling so ideal for travel and just because they are small and fit snuggly doesn’t mean there’s no power in them. Little buds, big bass. They’re sweat-proof so sport it up and fear not about ruining them. You’ll get about 5 hours off of one charge but 25 hours with the charging case. The only blip is if you’re an Android user you have to adjust the volume on your phone to “maximum” first to get the highest volume out of these. Other than that it’s a solid audio device at a solid price.
If you still need a webcam and you don’t want to shell out close to $100 for the best, this $27 unit by Firsting has 1080p plug-and-play functionality, complete with a stereo noise-canceling microphone that can hear you from up to 10 meters away. Just clip the $3 coupon at Amazon.
Gaming in 4K is not a unrealistic possibility anymore. Recent graphics card releases have made this possible at a playable framerate, and it requires a great monitor to make sure the colours and the frames are shown in the best way.
This is where the LG 27UK850 27" 4K Monitor comes in. Featuring USB-C output so you can connect to a device with the same standard, it also has HDR-10, so photos and videos can be displayed in all its full-color glory.
As the years pass, storage becomes bigger while the cost becomes cheaper. Fifteen years ago it was a lot of money to buy a 512mb Memory Pro Duo card for a Sony PSP.
Now, a 1TB SD Card from SanDisk is available for $280, enabling you to capture 4K video and all the photos you need for certain jobs, or just for family occasions.
There are few feelings worse than having your phone die on you as you’re walking (or driving) the streets alone in the midst of a pandemic—not that I would know anything about that! A threat best avoided with the purchase of a portable charger to keep around, these Aukey-branded banks and car plugs are up to 27% off for Prime Day right now.
You can grab a 10,000mAh 18-watt Power Delivery fast charger for just $16 using our exclusive code KINJAN83P. Need a backup for your vehicles cigarette lighter, or whatever you’re supposed to call those things now? This 30W dual-port option is compact enough to carry in your pocket, always there when you need it most, and is marked down to $11 with the code KINJACCA3. Last but not least, a 20,000mAh USB-C charger is future-proof and powerful. It costs $15, no code required, making it an easy impulse buy that’s thin, light, and replete with enough connections that’ll last years to come.
Audiophiles rejoice, JBL True Wireless Headphones are $40, which is 60% off the list price. You’ll get bumping bass and four hours of audio playback, increasing to 12 once you charge the case they live in. What else is there to say? Hop on it before it’s gone.
The mini-drone by DJI is able to take to the skies for 30 minutes, capturing HD videos and 12MP of aerial photos. It’s a perfect peripheral to use at a park or your own garden in taking some fantastic footage.
It weighs at 250 grams, which means it’s under the weight requirement to register the device with the government, so you can use it right away.
The DJI Fly App is the recommended way to control the drone through your smartphone, so you can accurately control it for as long as the battery lasts.
There’s speakers and then there are speakers, and the JBL Boombox falls in the latter. A large boombox that’s also waterproof, it can be a great peripheral to have in the garden while streaming your curated playlist of nineties classics.
It has a huge 20,000mAh battery that can make it last throughout the week, and it can also charge any connected devices if one is running low.
Sometimes it can be difficult to capture the moment with the correct framing, or even when capturing video, you could lose the subject as they are out of the frame.
But with the DJI Osmo Mobile 3, it’s a compact holder that can reduce any shaky video, and stabilise any photos taken. Even in these 2020 times, recording video for a Vlog can be created with much more ease and control with the Osmo.
Samsung phones have been ahead of the curve in regards to notch-less design, and the Galaxy S10 exemplifies this with only a cut-out for its dual-camera design at the front.
It is factory unlocked, so you can pop in a SIM to a network of your choice. Featuring a triple-camera system at the back and a 3,400 mAh battery, this is a great price for a phone you will be using for some time.
I personally can’t think of anything I could download or store en masse that would need 12TB of space (memes and GIFs, maybe), but the world doesn’t revolve around me. If you need a shit ton of space, this Western Digital Elements hard drive is the Prime-exclusive deal to jump on. It’s down to $175, a 30% discount.
This is an external, so you can move it back and forth between different systems, and with its USB 3.0 speeds, your transfer rates will be the fastest those mechanical gears inside can manage.
Good audio can absolutely enhance your viewing or listening experience and bad audio can also destroy it. Take 25% off Polk Audio’s CS1 Series Center Channel Speaker and turn your next movie marathon into a pitch-perfect journey. This is a Prime Day deal that runs today only.
This speaker is actually designed to “channel” sound more accurately and directly. The Dynamic Balance Woofers produce crisp tones with low distortion but you’ll also get decent bass pumping through it as well. It’s also built to be flipped if you need to optimize space and the sound isn’t affected in any way. You can actually turn this speaker upside down, aims it up, and let the tunes flow right to you. The CS1 works great for large or small rooms with simple tweaks in surround sound setup. Easy to install with great savings today. This is the missing piece to perfecting your entertainment system.
Get free shipping if your a Prime member and remember the price will change once you add it to your cart.
If you need a watch that only focuses on a few things, then the Garmin Forerunner will be a great choice. The battery can last for up to seven days in smartwatch mode, and 7 hours in GPS mode.
It can finely track your fitness, from running and jogging to swimming and heart rate trends throughout the days. It’s marked down $230 from the list price for Prime members during Prime Day.
Samsung’s flagship Galaxy smartphones are pretty expensive now, and that’s because they come with a ton of cutting edge tech and high-end features meant mostly for the pro-iest of pros. But today, you can save $250 on the 128GB Samsung Galaxy Note 20 5G, unlocked for use on almost any GSM or CDMA carrier in the United States, including Verizon. This is a Prime Day exclusive deal.
Waiting for you is a nice fat 6.7" display, a 64MP rear camera system featuring hree sensors, 10MP up front, and a Snapdragon 865+ octa-core chipset with 8GB of RAM for power. Also adding to your productivity is the all-important S Pen, giving you a Wacom-like experience for drawing, taking notes, and superior multitasking gestures. Find it in Mystic Green, Mystic Bronze, or Mystic Gray.
Sony’s new headphones are leading the way in their noise-cancellation technology, alongside the gestures that come with these new models. They will pause the track once it detects you’re speaking, and will also switch off the noise-cancellation when a hand is put on the right-cup.
They feature fantastic sound, and are able to be paired for up to two devices, so you can switch between your phone and your tablet with ease.
As this also comes with a $25 gift card, you can be free to spend that on something else on Prime Day.
Movie nights with loved ones are a great way to pass the time. If you’re keeping your circle small or still sticking to those you co-habitat with I’m sure Netflix and Hulu have been given a run for their money. I’ve been looking into a projector because I’m lucky enough to have a backyard and have a roommate who thought setting up a project for our weekend hangs with the same five people we see might be cool. The ELEPHAS 2020 WiFi Movie Projector is just $93 right now.
It’s compatible with Android/iPhone/Windows 10 and you only need WiFi on setup. You can also easily connect your iPhone with the original cable line too. It’s got full HD 1080P input and 24-bit true-color support. The built-in speaker has a pretty robust sound that gets decently loud. They do recommend six to ten feet distance for the projector so keep that in mind for placement. Another cool feature is that it’s compatible with the Roku Stick, Fire Stick, and Chromecast blowing the doors on your viewing options wide open.
Free shipping on this item for Prime members.
If you need a PC with huge amounts of storage, the Seagate Barracuda Pro is the hard drive of choice. Featuring a whopping 12TB, or 10.9TB when formatted, it can store a massive catalog of games from different publishers, alongside many large media files such as 4K UHD movies. This is 27% off the normal price, which results in plenty of value for the number of gigabytes in place.
I’ve tested this portable speaker and even gifted it to a pal for her new apartment and I can say Urbanears makes great products. For Prime Day the company is giving you 40% off two of their fan favorites. The Ralis Portable Bluetooth Speaker is now $80 less and the Plattan 2 Bluetooth Headphones now are $40 less.
The Ralis Speaker is compact but gives a lot of sound no matter where you place it. It’s durable and water-resistant and has made many appearances at beach days. You’ll get up to 20 hours of playtime off of one charge and it connects easily to your phone. You’ll be able to control the speakers through the user-friendly Urbanears app. It also has a powerbank so charging devices while out is absolutely possible. All four colors are on sale.
These comfy and vibrant headphones are blessed with exactly the same quality as the Ralis. The Plattan 2s will get you about 30 hours of listening enjoyment from one charge, the Bluetooth connects smoothly, and you can control everything directly from the side knob. The sound is full-spectrum, crisp, and clear. All eight colors are on sale.
Free shipping for Prime members.
This smartwatch from Fitbit is 29% off for Prime Day, where it can measure your sleep and fitness throughout the day. It also has Alexa built-in, so you can command any lights or music that are connected, to be switched on as soon as you speak into the Versa 2. It comes with small and large bands so you can make sure that the Versa 2 fits your wrist, while also feeling comfortable.
If you’re looking to upgrade an important component to your PC, or you’re thinking of building one, this motherboard by Gigabyte would be a great starting point. It’s down to $180, which features onboard Wi-Fi, three M.2 storage slots, and compatibility for most of Intel’s 9th Gen processors.
If you’re looking for a sale on some Beats, boy do I have the deal for you. The Powerbeats Pro headphones are down to $175, 30% off the original list price and the lowest price we’ve ever seen them. That’s what Prime Day does for you!
You’ll be able to wirelessly connect these bad boys to any device and you’ll be able to get up to nine hours of listening time, and can control the volume and audio controls from the actual headphones. I don’t know how long this deal will last, so grab em’ before they’re gone!
Featuring 32GB of internal space with an 8 inch screen, the Galaxy Tab is a great choice for reading books and watching movies. It has an expansion slot for a microSD card up to 512GB, so even more content can be added to the device.
With it being 33% off on Prime Day for Amazon Prime members until the event ends, factoring in its great battery and clear screen, it’s a great Christmas gift for a family member who wants to keep in touch with everyone.
Start your Prime Day off right with this deal. This pair of Boltune True Wireless Earbuds are a low $29, which is $10 lower than their original list price of $40. You’ll be able to seamlessly pair the pair to your iPhone or Android and gives you six hours of playtime per charge, and 40 hours of battery life with the added USB-C charging case. Grab em before they disappear into the void.
I love my MOFT stand and use it every day. I was pleasantly surprised that it really did hold the weight of my thirteen-inch Dell Inspiron. If you are still working at home with a laptop and not a stand, this is a literal wrist saver. For Prime Day take 25% off a selection of their stands.
The stands pre-COVID were ideal for their portability, so I loved bringing it to the cafe I used to write in. The smaller size doesn’t take away from their strength. The way these are angled not only helps with your wrists but your posture too. Bye-bye neck pain. They are designed to improve heat dissipation so your lappy never gets too hot also. It’s easy to unfold and fit underneath. MOFT jokes about a one-second installation and that’s accurate. While the adhesive is strong it can be moved and it doesn’t leave marks. The MOFT X for your phone is all you looking for as it’s a wallet and a stand. But this is an older model so anything the size of an iPhone 11 or bigger it won’t work with.
Prime members enjoy free two-day shipping.
As a staunch leader in premium audio, Sennheiser’s products are out of reach for modest budgets, but you can score a pair of the company’s best true wireless earbuds for $30 cheaper as part of ongoing Prime Day blowouts. That would be the Momentum True Wireless 2, and they’re down to $270 post-discount.
Prime Day deals are everywhere today. Maybe you’ve found something you like, maybe the deals have felt like duds. If you’re looking for a good pair of headphones, Best Buy has the Sennheiser HD 458BT wireless noise-cancelling headphones for $100 off, bringing the price down to $100. Since you’re probably still working from home, a good dose of noise cancellation can go a long way in staying focused.
If you’re an iPhone user with some cash to blow, skip the pretenders and even the lesser AirPods to go for something better. The AirPods Pro stepped the game up with rubber tips, noise cancellation, and better overall audio quality.
Check out today’s exciting offer at Amazon, which has it knocked down to $199. That price is still available as of this writing!

If you don’t mind your Apple tablets in miniature form, today is an excellent opportunity to try out the latest iPad Mini. Amazon has the 64GB Wi-Fi model down to $336, a $63 discount and the lowest we’ve ever seen.
The 7.9-inch display means it isn’t too far removed from “phone” territory, but this is the perfect size for reading, casual gaming, and light browsing. It’s also now great for note taking and art thanks to the added Apple Pencil support, which is a separate $94 purchase if you so desire. Despite the smaller size, you’re still hitting Apple’s preferred 10-hour battery mark on a full charge. Ships immediately.
Whether you’re still rocking with a dumb TV or your smart TV seems more like it faked its college degree, Rokus come to the rescue. They’re cheap and offer a no-nonsense smart apps platform, giving you access to all your favorite streaming apps with voice access. Take the Roku Premiere, which Amazon has on sale for $27 ($13 off) today.
This box offers 4K HDR streaming and Dolby Atmos passthrough in apps that support it, and comes with a simple remote that makes it easy to access everything in no more than a few taps.
If you’re looking for a quick charge, check out the RAVPower 20W USB-C Charger. It’s only $17 with the promo code KINJABD2 or a Prime membership, and includes a 3ft lighting to USB-C cable to charge your iPhone or tablet ASAP.
Many laptops these days sacrifice extensive ports in the favor of being as thin and light as possible, which has its obvious benefits and drawbacks. That’s great for easy portability, but can sometimes be a drag when you need to plug in a device or if you want to make your laptop the center of a more robust home office setup.
There are all sorts of USB-C hubs available, but Vava’s 12-in-1 Docking Station is one of the most port-packed options we’ve seen at an affordable price. Simply plug it into a USB-C port and you’ll add two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, a USB-C PD port, SD and microSD card readers, an Ethernet port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, DC in port, and two HDMI ports. Those HDMI ports enable dual-monitor 4K/60fps action with compatible laptops, letting you turn your slim notebook into a beast of a home PC.
The Vava 12-in-1 Docking Station usually runs $100, but right now when you clip the Amazon coupon and input the exclusive promo code KJVA1009, you’ll drop it down to just $70. If you need a more robust hub like this, it’s a bargain.
This deal was originally published in October 2020 by Andrew Hayward and was updated on 10/10/2020 by Elizabeth Lanier.
Apple’s new Watch SE is a pretty nifty watch. At $279 for the 40mm edition and $300 for the 44mm edition, you can now get an Apple Watch with the latest guts and most of the features without paying the premium. Today, you can get the 40mm model for $279, and the 44mm model is down from $310 to $300. Those prices only count if you go for the Sport Band, though, so be wary of any customizations beyond that if you’re worried about racking up the costs.
TODAY’S BEST GAMING DEALS
The Last of Us Part II | $40 | Amazon
If you didn’t pick it up earlier this year, good news! The Last of Us Part II is down to $40 on Amazon right now, saving you $20. Be warned: the story’s been polarizing, but it’s also one of the most anticipated games of the year, so if you’re already invested in the story, now’s a good time to grab the next chapter in the story.
If you’re looking for a gaming headset, this Razer Kraken Tournament Edition in green is $53 off for Prime members at Amazon right now, bringing it down to $47. Compatible with all major gaming consoles, PC, and mobile, the Kraken Tournament Edition includes a USB audio interface housing all your volume controls. This set has customizable bass, too, allowing you to tweak the boom in your ears across 17 different levels.
Normally $50, the Poké Ball Plus at $20 is almost mandatory for anyone playing Pokémon Go, and it’s the only way to get a Mew and Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee. You’ll get the most value out of it in the former circumstance. The Poké Ball Plus illuminates and vibrates at the sign of wild Pokémon and Poké Stops.
In the Switch games, you can use it as a motion controller for an authentic Pokémon-catching experience, and you can put any of your favorite Pokémon “inside” and hear them growl when you shake it. The price shows $50 on Amazon’s page, but you’ll see the discount once you hit checkout if you buy directly from Amazon.
What hellfire fever dream brought the franchises of Alien and Pokémon together? If you’ve ever been curious about what adorable Pikachu would look like as the bane of Ripley’s existence search no further. Bring this nightmare into your home for just $17. This is a Prime Day deal for members only.
This Xenochu is grotesquely detailed and honestly, there is something beautiful in how meticulous the design is. Don’t get me wrong it’s still gruesome as all get out but I’ll give credit where it’s due. Both the orange and green options are $8 less although if you really want a good peek into its monstrous forehead go with the orange. I just hope you have a Jonesy to protect when these inevitably become sentient and try to murder you in your sleep.
This item ships for free.
So, you’ve been lucky enough to get your hands on a Nintendo Switch despite the extremely shoddy stock. Great! But now you’ll need some games. The Switch has a great library of excellent games, but many of them are first-party and Nintendo games rarely go on sale.
Not so right now, luckily. Amazon has a bunch of big bargains during Prime Day, and at least as of this writing, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the only deal that requires a Prime membership to snag the $40 price.
Otherwise, games such as Super Mario Odyssey, Super Mario Party, and others listed below are down to $40 for everyone at Amazon, while Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 is marked down further to $30.
The Razer Blade laptops are prohibitively expensive, and rightfully so. If you’ve been eyeing one, now’s the time to pull the trigger. The Razer Blade 15 with a 10th-generation Intel Core i7 octa-core CPU and NVIDIA’s RTX 2070 Super Max-Q graphics card is $600 off. Your final total of $2,000 is still pretty steep with this Prime-exclusive discount.
The Full HD display is a little stifling, but you’ll at least be certain this laptop can handle pretty much anything in your Steam library. It also has a 300Hz refresh rate, which is absolutely insane. Other niceties include 16GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD, Thunderbolt 3 connections, all packed into a single block of machined aluminum.
Sports games are seeing sizable discounts during Amazon Prime Day, and you can snag two of the latest right now for a song.
Madden NFL 21 is currently half-price for Prime members at $30, while NBA 2K21 comes close at $35. That’s true for physical, current-gen console copies for both games. Grab both while you can; it’s close to a 2-for-1 bargain at these cut-rate prices!
I have one of FunLab’s switch cases and I absolutely love it. They are well made, protect my Switch Lite beautifully, and keep it scratch-free. This adorable Tom Nook one is no different and today it’s $4 off.
These cases are for the Switch Lite and made from two-layer PU leather. They are durable and brilliantly printed and vibrant in color. This Tom Nook one is slighted raise with his cute con artist face. The lining on the inside is soft to keep your device safe and sound. It’s got five slots for game cards that will keep them dust-free. It easily closes with two magnetic snaps and stays closed. This case isn’t bulky and can be tossed in your purse or backpack. Or heck just use this as your purse, which I have done. Look Tom may be a crook but this cute carrying case is the accessory you need to be the most stylish mayor of all the islands. No turnips required.
Free two-day shipping for Prime members.
If you need a gaming headset, you NEED to hop on this deal for the HyperX Cloud Alpha S. This highly rated pair is normally $130, but Amazon is advertising a $90 price for Prime Day when you add it to cart. The kicker is that it’s actually $59 by the time you get there!
The Razer keyboards are the go-to when looking for a peripheral to go with your gaming PC. It features RGB lighting to every key, and these can be customized to a game of your choice. From Fall Guys to Hades, the Huntsman Tournament Edition caters to every gamers’ needs for $40 less today.
A good game can help you unwind after a stressful day of slogging through work or just checking Twitter. They can be pricey, though, so it pays to scope out a good deal or two. Right now, Best Buy has Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, Assassin’s Creed: The Rebel Collection, and Assassin’s Creed III Remastered Edition for $20 each, so take your pick and get your game on. You could even snag all three for the same price as most major titles.
This Marvel Legends set of Peggy Carter and Steve Rogers was a coveted favorite when it was released in conjunction with the first Captain America film. The 6-inch action figures and modeled after Hayley Atwell and Chris Evans and are perfection. As a Cap aficionado, this is my favorite of his movie looks. This deal is the perfect time to add this duo to your MCU collection, especially if you can save 36% on them. They come with switchable hands and 7 accessories for multiple poses. Their intricate detail reminds you of just how these heroes fell for each other. Grab them and start battling Red Skull right now.
The deal runs for the rest of the day and is exclusive to Prime members. They will also enjoy free shipping on this item.
When I saw the case appear on my dash I assumed it was some sort of vintage throwback box, which I was still absolutely interested in. As a former Blockbuster employee (# 161) I was absolutely intrigued to step back into the golden age of video rental. And grab 30% off while doing so.
This game is charades on over two hundred movies from all different genres and eras. I enjoy games like this because it shows me who of my friends I have to take under my cinematic wing and educate them on the wonders of celluloid. One reviewer said they needed to update the movies because their children didn’t know them and well, what do you say to that. The point of the game is to revisit the ‘90s are earlier. So in truth, maybe this is a Millenial and Gen X game night. I still stand by using this as a barometer on whether your friends are cool or not.
Free two-day shipping for Prime members.
While Final Fantasy X and its divisive sequel aren’t quite the most fondly remembered in the longstanding JRPG series, it does hold up better than most of the games which preceded it, even without the full-on makeover treatment that graced Final Fantasy VII earlier this year. Yes, it’s true, Final Fantasy X and X-2 for Nintendo Switch is merely a remaster of the original games, their assets upscaled for a more recent console than their native PS2. Still, with 60 rearranged music tracks, it sounds better than ever. Plus you get to experience the infamous Tidus laugh all over again—in breathtaking high definition.
No matter how you feel about the Sphere Grid upgrade system or blitzball mini game (my wife loves it, I’m inclined to disagree), much of the series’ charm is still intact. The move to a “conditional turn-based” (CTB) combat system, as opposed to its former active time-based, remains controversial to this day. However, compared to modern-day entries like Final Fantasy XV, it’s much more comparable to its predecessors. And for Kingdom Hearts players who never got around to it, you’ll finally get to know Wakka, Rikku, and Auron on a deeper level. (Speaking of which, the Kingdom Hearts All-in-One Package is also 40% off as of this writing.) For $25, maybe it’s time to finally give Final Fantasy X a shot, or revisit it for the first time in over a decade and indulge in some nostalgia.
If PC gaming is life, you should check out the Aukey 45" RGB gaming desk. Down to $130 when you use promo code KINJALY1, it’s 28% off its original list price. It’s a T-shaped desk with a cup holder, hooks to place headphones, and lights on either side so it can light up at night. Well. What are you waiting for? Grab this bad boy, now. I know you want to!
Microsoft has announced that Forza Motorsport 7 is now on Game Pass. It was one of the few remaining titles under the Xbox Game Studios banner that wasn’t, and probably because this highly popular sim-centric racer was still selling like hot cakes. There’s an active community still populating the circuits with hundreds of powerful custom cars.
And in case you haven’t heard it, Microsoft also bought Zenimax Studios, reportedly for an earth-shattering $7.5 billion in cold, hard cash. With the acquisition, Microsoft gets full control of everything under that banner, including Bethesda, id Software, Arkane, and more. Those studios are responsible for some of the most fun games this generation produced, including Doom, Wolfenstein, Fallout 4 (and 76 now, apparently, but I’ve personally given up), The Evil Within, and Dishonored. And while we haven’t gotten a new single player Elder Scrolls game since the Xbox 360, we know Elder Scrolls 6 is on the way, and Bethesda is working on other exciting new IPs like Starfield.
The other leg of that news is that all the games from these studios, like any first party Microsoft studio, will be available day one on Xbox Game Pass. Game Pass Ultimate was already one of the hottest deals going in gaming before the news, and even without meaty discounts like 3 months for $25 at Eneba (with promo code FORZ7ISHERE), you’ll enjoy all the benefits for one low price. That means you’ll get online play, hundreds of first- and third-party games, exclusive discounts, in-game perks, and more, and that goes whether you’re on Xbox One, PC, or the soon-to-arrive Xbox Series X.
With Cyberpunk 2077 going gold, there are no more delays to fear. If you’re on PC and ready to dive into what’s undoubtedly the biggest game of the generation so far (at least as far as hype and expectations are concerned), you’ll want to head to Eneba and place a pre-order with exclusive code KINJA25. That’ll get you a digital copy redeemable at GOG (activation instructions here) for just $47, one of the lowest pre-order prices we’ve seen yet for Cyberpunk 2077 on any platform.
Unlike Geralt of the ancient (and totally fictitious) land of Rivia, Cyberpunk takes us into a not-so-distant future where guys good and bad are yoked up with cybernetic enhancements. Life is generally fine until it’s discovered there’s a prototypical component that grants immortality to whoever has it installed, and, of course, all hell breaks loose to secure it.
Cyberpunk 2077 was originally set to be out this Spring and was once delayed until September, but it since suffered another delay to November 19, 2020. But no worries: that date won’t change from here on out.
We are mere weeks away from season two of The Mandalorian. This show has produced the cutest thing Star Wars has done in years. Of course, I’m talking about The Child aka Baby Yoda. Spend the next few Fridays until the series drops by adding Monopoly’s Star Wars The Child Edition to your game night for 25% off today.
Instead of your classic Monopoly pieces like the dog or wagon, here we have The Child in a few poses. Choose from him eating the frog, using the force, drinking the broth, or sitting in the Hoverpram. The general rules apply of buying and trading objects and property so nothing is really different. Mandalorian fans will easily spot famous items from the show like the Mythosaur necklace. My only gripe is that “This is the way,” isn’t on the Go space, seems like a design miss. But other than that if you need a new version or an upgrade to a traditional entry of game night this is a good one.

Space is a commodity in a home, especially in the kitchen, and many people want to make sure their coffee is ready without the appliance taking up too much space.
This is where the Keurig K-Mini Coffee Maker comes in. A compact coffee machine where you only need to add water, drop in a pod at the top of the machine, and let it make you a coffee.
Compact cookers have become a staple in many homes these last few years, and one of them are the Ninja Pressure Cookers. This particular model, the FD401, has nine functions to cook different types of food, from slow cooking, to steaming, to boiling. Plenty of options to make sure the food is cooked right.
For Prime Day, Ninja has reduced the price of the FD401 by 44%, which would make it a great present for someone at Thanksgiving or Christmas.

I couldn’t love my PhoneSoap Smartphone Sanitizer more. I put my masks, keys, glasses, and of course my iPhone in it daily. I try to drop my stuff in immediately when I get home to ensure I get the fullest out of it. I’ve tested a few sanitizers and PhoneSoap stands above the others. Today only take 20% off with the coupon you clip for checkout.
This design has two scientifically proven germicidal UV-C bulbs that completely sanitize your gear. I like the PhoneSoap more than others because there isn’t this burnt smell that often happens upon completion. All my stuff smells like it was just zap fried but not with PhoneSoap. However, I still think the charging ports just take too long on all of these, ideal if you aren’t in a rush though. This model was made to accommodate all smartphones even my large iPhone 11. If it fits inside I say sanitizer it. Using this unit on a regular basis will help cut germs, bacteria, and keeps us all a little safer and healthier.
Prime members enjoy same day shipping on this item.
This Prime Day, make sure you record all your road encounters by grabbing a Vava Dual Dash Cam, now $25 off for Prime Day with a standard discount and a $10 coupon. That’s $125 for front-and-rear vehicular eyes at 1080p, but if you opt to disable the rear camera, you can capture more detail with 2560 x 1440 resolution.
It has all the works, including night vision, loop recording, collision detection for automatic accident recordings, and a parking mode that’ll automatically record and notify you whenever someone bumps into your car.
Home cams can relieve a multitude of worries. I just got my best friend one for her puppy which has been a real lifesaver when we got out. Vava makes some of the best in my opinion and if you can get a quality cam on sale all the better. Take $58 off the 2-Cam Kit today when you clip the coupon on the page and put your mind at ease.
This integrates beautifully with your phone through their app and the feed it produces is pretty clear most of the time. It’s 1080P full HD resolution with the lights on and I can say even when the puppy is left at night the infrared technology comes through. The motion detection pings my pal immediately as soon as her dog starts to stir. It was pretty easy to set it up and the desk mount was perfect for her to angle the cam. The kit is basically wireless and you just need a good internet connection. That being said if you’re using this for an outdoor cam it can handle the elements as it’s waterproof and the rechargeable battery can last up to 100 days of use with 5000mAh capacity. The best part is the Cloud Storage and my friend has saved some pretty funny videos of her cavapoo throwing his toys around while he thought no one was watching. If you’re a bit of a security nut fear not, this little cam has the same encryption standards as banks so your personal info is safe and sound.
Free same day shipping for Prime members.

However you use it, the price is appealing indeed: the twin size version of the ivory version seen above is nearly 50% off at $40 right now, and there are other size and color combinations that hit even higher percentage discounts. Have a look while these Prime member-exclusive prices last!

Learning at home might have opened up new curiosities for both you and your little ones. Getting creative in teaching a tough curriculum has probably been a challenge but a fun one.

There’s no way being shot in the face with an infrared thermometer will ever be comfortable. I went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art a few weeks ago and immediately when you walk in they take your temperate like this. In fact, there have been several establishments I’ve been in that are doing this. If you’re looking for a way to find out if someone is running a fever without touching them this is for you. Save $23 on this Infrared Thermometer from Boncare for the next days. All you have to do is use this code 584QOUMU at checkout.
This forehead and ear thermometer is great for all ages and sizes so it’ll work for the whole family. Works within seconds for an accurate reading with minimal fuss which is great for squirmy babies or children. And because it’s all external its much more hygienic and allows for few germs to be spread. You can even save readings in case you are keeping track to make sure no one is getting sick or that someone is recovering. There is actually a fever warning system that will sound if the person in the question is running a little warm but the LCD screening is pretty easy to read as well. It comes with a one-year warranty but just remember to grab two AAA Batteries.
This deal runs until October 12. Prime members enjoy free one-day shipping.
National Coffee Day was last week, so why not find a new brew to enjoy to celebrate? We even have a great deal for you right now to get your first bag of Atlas Coffee for free.

You can get caffeinated conveniently and on your terms by indicating your preference for lighter or darker roasts, or have them surprise you with each delivery.
TODAY’S BEST LIFESTYLE DEALS
I can’t speak for anyone else’s experience, but trying to figure out your lineage in a black family can be quite the task. We’re cut from all different stocks of humanity, and many of us don’t have recorded family history to preserve legacies. But with options like this comprehensive 23andMe DNA test kit, you can start to peel back layers you never thought possible. It’s now $99 at Amazon for Prime Day, a 50% discount.
I’m a huge fan of FaceTory and K-beauty in general. And all of their masks are on sale for Prime Day so you can poke around but only two of these packs are 34% off. Both the Everyday Charcoal Detoxifying Masks and the Everyday Lemon Brightening Masks are now just $9 for the rest of the day.
If you’re looking for natural ingredients both of these fit that bill. But if your needs include deep cleaning, oil reduction, and blackhead annihilation charcoal is for you. They work with all face types but really help with cleaning out pores and removing the day’s dirt.
If tightening and brightening are in your cards try these Lemon Masks. The lemon extract aids in reducing discoloration, they cut down oil, and shrink pores. The masks will help return your skin to a natural glowing balancing all while making it softer and healthier.
For years now the general consensus has been to use some white string from a case that looked similar to an AirPods case, and floss for as long as you could.
But similar to electric toothbrushes, electric flossing has now become a staple of many bathrooms, making it so much easier to floss.
The Waterpik WP-669 has ten settings to accurately measure how intense the flossing needs to be, while being on a timer that pauses every 30 seconds to help track the flossing time.
What’s the better value: a $300 dentist bill or a $28 box of whitening strips? Before you make that expensive trip, try out these Crest no-slip teeth whiteners. They supposedly remove up to 14 years of staining for up to 12 months, and there are two other “Express” strips for a quick same-day result, perfect for an unexpected hot date. The standard treatments require a 30-minute application once a day, which is totally reasonable to improve that already rock star smile of yours.
