BEST TECH DEALS

Update: The coupon is gone, but $145 for a mesh network is still a solid deal.

Kiss your ugly, barebones router goodbye with this sleek $125 $145 mesh network from TP-Link. Systems, like the TP-Link Deco, Google WiFi and eero, offer a bonafide solution to WiFi dead zones in your home.

Here’s how they work: multiple nodes, or access points, work together to blanket your home in signal. Better still, their glossy design encourages people to keep them outside of closets and drawers and in plain view to ensure unencumbered signal. (Walls block signal, bro.)

This model also offers all the benefits of a modern router (e.g., 802.11ac/WiFi 5 and app-based management) and routinely offered at $200-240, this markdown is the biggest we’ve seen.

Make sure to clip the coupon to bring the price all the way down to $125.


The Anker PowerCore Fusion is one of our biggest sellers ever, because it combines a USB wall charger and a portable battery pack into a single product. Now, RAVPower has their own alternative with a slightly larger 6700mAh battery inside, and you can grab it for just $22 with promo code KINJAQFF.

They sent me one to check out, and despite the larger battery inside, it’s barely bigger or heavier than the Anker, and would make a great holiday stocking stuffer.


Amazon’s 12 Days of Deals have arrived at PC day, and the most wide-ranging sale of the bunch includes everything from networking gear, to external hard drives, to flash drives, to actual components you could use to build or upgrade your PC.

A few of our favorite deals include the basic-but-fast Archer C1200 router for $40, a 2TB portable hard drive for $48, an ultra-fast cable model for $79 (a must-buy if you’re still paying for one from your ISP), and a GTX 1060 graphics card for just $229. There are dozens of other deals included in the sale though, so you’ll want to head over to Amazon before they sell out.


iTunes gift card discounts are a dime a dozen, but for whatever reason, deals on Google Play credit are far less common. That makes today’s $50 Google Play gift card for $40 deal from Walmart so impressive. 20% off would be a sizable savings for any gift card, but especially for one that’s so universally useful (at least for Android owners), and so rarely discounted.


The hits keep on coming: You can add Acer and LG PCs, and Viewsonic monitors to the long list of discounted computers and peripherals marked down today. All of which feature the highest markdowns we’ve seen on Amazon.

In case you missed it, you can pretty much find anything associated with computers discounted today on Amazon. This includes routers, USB Type-C peripherals, mice and keyboards, and laptops.


Today, Amazon is blowing out a number of Logitech accessories for work and play.

If you’re looking to upgrade your home office setup, notable deals include the $30 Logitech MK545 and $130 MX900 wireless keyboard and mouse combos. (The latter set features an exclusive all-black version of my favorite mouse, the MX Master.) Both sets are an all-time low.

Gamers, too, can get in on the fun with Logitech’s G-Series gaming headsets and an entry-level starter set for $80, or $20 off a similar bundle offered by Razer during Black Friday.


Apple’s 12" MacBook is one of the thinnest and most travel-friendly laptops out there, and you can get the current 2017 model for $1,000, complete with an upgraded 512GB SSD, 8GB of RAM, and an upgraded Core i5 processor, as a certified refurb.

This computer isn’t exactly a powerhouse, but if you just need a travel-friendly Mac, this is one of the best deals we’ve seen. I have this exact model model as my work computer, and I’m happy with it, especially when I travel. Just note that while this model has been refurbished by Apple, its one-year warranty is backed by Woot.


There are a lot of reasons to own a Raspberry Pi, but anecdotally, I think somewhere north of 90% of people buy them to build retro game consoles. If anyone on your shopping list loves to tinker Amazon’s running a couple of great starter kits today.

$58 gets you a kit with a Pi 3 Model B, but you should probably spend $6 extra to upgrade to the faster B+, in addition to a faster microSD card. Both kits include all the basics, including a case, storage, and a power supply, so your giftee can start building cool projects from Day 1. Just note that both deals are only available today.


Even if Pop Sockets aren’t really your thing, if you have any teens on your holiday shopping list, they’ll almost certainly love to get one of these swappable three-packs. Each set comes with one Socket and three interchangeable face plates, and you can get the pack of your choice for $20 with promo code 5OFF3PACKS.


If you’ve been sitting on a killer podcast idea or have aspirations à la “A Star is Born,” this Gold Box is for you. Right now, Amazon is blowing out a bunch of microphones, keyboards, headphones and other recording essentials.

Internet favorites, such as Blue Yeti microphones and Audio-Technica ATH-M50x’s, are down to some of the lowest prices we’ve seen. Burgeoning pianists can pick up an Amazon-exclusive Casio CDP-240 digital piano for $120 off its regular price.


Anker is best known for its charging gear, but they make some pretty handy office accessories as well, and several are on sale for one day only in Amazon’s Gold Box.

Give your wrist a break with a wireless vertical mouse, charge six gadgets at once for $25, or turn your USB-C ports into a variety of more useful ports with a pair of discounted hubs. But the most exciting deal is on a product I’ve never seen before: A clever power strip for your desk that includes two AC outlets, two USB ports, and even a 30W USB-C PD port that can charge a laptop or a Nintendo Switch. That’s a steal for $26.

Just remember that all of these deals are only available today, so you probably shouldn’t bother trying to go through procurement.


Today is a really good day to buy a laptop. Amazon is blowing out a bunch of components, as well as these awesome Dell computers.

Dell XPS laptops are some of the best all-around laptops. These lightweight ultrabooks have beautiful, edge-to-edge screens and boardroom-ready looks. Underneath its business-friendly exterior, however, is serious business: solid-state drives, oodles of RAM, and gaming-ready Nvidia graphics cards.

Oh, and there are Chromebooks, too. Less impressive than their XPS cousins, but a few Chrome OS-powered Dells are marked down, starting at $250.

Quick heads up: Some of these are refurbished models. Some shoppers have misgivings about used products, but these come with a Dell warranty, so you’re covered.


If you lose your keys, or your bag, or your phone, you don’t have to lose your mind, too. Prepare for any bouts of forgetfulness with this Tile Mate, now just $10. The tiny Bluetooth tracker pairs with your phone and beeps when you push a button on the smartphone app, so you can find what you’re looking for. And if you’ve lost your phone, press a button on the Tile to make your phone beep, too. And if you’ve lost both your phone and the Tile, probably time to reevaluate your priorities.

Just kidding, the Tile community can help you track down the Mate, while this thing called the “Find My iPhone” should be able to help with the phone. Cool? Cool. Yes, it’s an older Tile model, but at that price, it’s a Mate worth getting acquainted with.


Chrome OS laptop devotees, your time has come. Google’s most powerful, flagship Pixelbook is currently selling for its lowest price ever on Amazon.

Inside this beautifully designed 2-in-1 package, you’ll find plenty of power: an i7 processor, 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. (Yeah, pretty overkill for web and Android apps.)

Despite the impressive specs, this laptop isn’t for everyone. Chrome OS remains a niche operating system. But for those who understand the limitations and, more importantly, the benefits of the no-viruses-ever Chrome OS, this is the deal you’ve been waiting for.

At $1,324, it’s selling for even lower than on Black Friday.


I don’t know why but big ass TVs make people happy. And if I know anything about the science of happiness (which I assure you, I do not), this 70-inch RCA smart TV is going to make some of you really happy.

Will it look as good as Samsung’s QLED sets? Of course not. Will it have the same inky, deep blacks as LG’s OLEDs? Keep dreaming.

But if size is your most important consideration, it’s hard to pass up a 70-inch screen, with 4K and built-in streaming apps, for $550.


Many gamers scoff at the idea of a pre-built gaming rig, let alone a gaming laptop. So this ROG Zephyrus GX501 is bound to get more than a few toxic nerds riled up.

The ROG Zephyrus GX501, I’ll admit, is a ridiculously named device. Its discounted $2,500 price tag is bound to receive the peanut gallery’s collective scorn. And yes, you could build a desktop with the same kind of horsepower (GeForce GTX 1080 graphics, Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB SSD) for far less.

However, you wouldn’t have to choose between power or portability with the GX501. You could bring it to a friend’s and play. Since I’ve always viewed gaming a social activity, this is super enticing. Imagine giving each of your friends a high five after a particularly grueling competitive match. (I, for one, think it’s one of nerdom’s true joys.)

Better still, this build is $200 less than the average price. If you’re into LAN parties as much as I am, this is a great deal. Just make sure to bring your power brick.


Massdrop, land of a thousand mechanical keyboard deals, has a particularly good offer available on the Gamdias Hermes M3 right now. You can grab the keyboard for just $59 (albeit not shipping until early January), compared to $95 elsewhere.

The Hermes M3 features brown mechanical switches, onboard profile storage, and full RGB backlighting; all the key features you’d want are here. It also eschews the number pad for a more compact, borderless design, and its low profile keycaps are a nice reprieve from traditional mechanical boards, without going full chiclet like a laptop.


These discounted and powerful gaming computers from CyberPower PC and HP can help kick off your burgeoning eSports career. (Let’s go NYXL!)

Both $1,700 CyberPower PC rigs are fully specced out, offering 16GB of RAM, and the powerful NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20 series graphics cards.

But, of course, there are a few key differences that go beyond the keyboard and the case. The SLC10200CPG offers an i9, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070, and a 1TB SSD, while the GXiVR8080A3 rocks an i7, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080, and 240GB SSD and 1TB HD for storage. Also, the former doesn’t ship with a WiFi card but that may be less of a priority for hardliners who swear by the ethernet cable.

And the $1,500 OMEN model offers the still-capable GTX 1080 graphics card, as well as a i7 processor, 256 GB SSD and 1 TB hard drive for storage and 16 GB RAM. This current markdown is the lowest we’ve ever seen, and $80 off average price.


With its 24 hour battery life, impressive bass, and crystal clear sound quality, the Anker SoundCore has long been our readers’ favorite affordable Bluetooth speaker, and its water-resistant successor is down to $30 today, or $10 less than usual.

The SoundCore 2 still includes dual drivers and that amazing 24 hour battery; the only real differences are a slightly tweaked design and the aforementioned water resistance. That means you can take it to the pool, the beach, or even the shower without fear.


We, the trackball enthusiasts, are a special breed. You may point and stare at our ergonomically sculpted peripherals, but we’re too busy getting stuff done to care.

It took nearly a decade for Logitech to update its trackball line and with the MX Ergo, I got everything I wanted. It’s super comfortable, can tilt 20 degrees for a more natural hand position, and it’ll last 4 months on a single charge.

It’s currently $76 on Amazon, a few pennies off from the lowest price we’ve ever seen. And while it’s not as sexy as the MX Master 2S, it won out as my favorite office accessory.


Noise canceling headphones, like the Sony WH-1000xm3 or Bose QuietComfort 35, come with many useful features, superb audio quality and a restrictive price tag. This alternative from Sennheiser offers great sound and a bare-bones noise canceling experience for less than half the price of the competition.

These cans leave out a lot of the bell and whistles of the competition, such as touch controls and a voice-assistant dedicated button. But they deliver what most people care about most: price and sound quality. And right now, the black version is available at the same price offered on Black Friday: $130.


Anker’s entry-level truly wireless headphones are available for just $45 today, the lowest price we’ve ever seen.

Like the Liberty headphones before it, the Liberty Lites will run for 3.5 hours on a single charge. The Lite’s charging case only holds an extra 9 hours worth of battery, vs. 24 hours for the Liberty, and 48 for the Liberty+. Still, that’s enough juice for an entire workday or a flight from New York to Los Angeles.


We’ve seen power cubes with more ports and outlets from other manufacturers, but Anker’s take on the category has a few nice touches. While it leaves one side of the cube empty, it does come with adhesive pads that let you mount it on a wall or underneath a desk. It normally sells for $26, but you can get it for just $20 today — the cheapest it’s been.


Anker makes just about every capacity of PowerCore battery pack imaginable, but the company’s 10,000mAh packs have always been among their most popular. And now, just in time for the holidays, they squeezed that much juice into a shockingly small new package.

The PowerCore 10000 Redux is only 4.1” x 2" x 1", and weighs only 6.6 ounces, making it the smallest 10,000mAh battery pack we’ve ever seen. And of course, Anker’s PowerIQ technology is built in, meaning you’ll get the fastest possible charging speed no matter what you plug in. There’s even a special trickle charge mode for low-draw devices like Bluetooth headphones, which often don’t draw enough power to keep USB battery packs “awake.”

The Redux only just came out, and retails for $34, but it’s marked down to $26 this week, making it a perfect stocking stuffer idea.


At a certain point, the benefits of upsizing your monitor still start to be overshadowed by the sheer amount of desk real estate you lose. But 27" is not that point, and the Dell UltraSharp 27" LED Monitor is a good buy at $329 today at Amazon, if you’ve been jonesing for more screen space.


It’s $5 more expensive than it was on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but if anyone on your shopping list (yourself included) would like an Alexa-enabled, incredible-sounding Sonos One speaker, they’re $20 off right now, which is the second best deal we’ve ever seen. Or, you can buy two and save $50, which is a match for Black Friday.

Unlike Black Friday though, that $20 discount is also valid on the new, limited-edition HAY Sonos Ones. They’re priced $30 higher than black and white, even on sale, but you get to pick from five designer colors.

The $100 Connect:Amp discount also made a comeback. This device basically turns any unpowered speaker pair into a Sonos smart speaker, compatible with streaming services and multi-room audio.


Samsung’s U3-rated microSD cards are some of the fastest and most popular options out there—I have the 128GB model in my own Nintendo Switch—and all four sizes are down to all-time low prices today on Amazon.

The 32GB card is down to a laughably cheap $6, the 64GB just dropped to $11, and the 128GB went from $25 to $20. The ever-so-slightly-slower SanDisk Ultra 128GB is also down to $20, which is even cheaper than we saw on Black Friday.

If you need extra space for your action cam, smartphone, tablet, Switch, or anything else, these are extremely fast cards, and extremely good deals.


Amazon sells a ton of affordable tech essentials under its AmazonBasics brand, and dozens of them (including some surprises) are on sale right now.

Your basic essentials like rechargeable AA batteries, USB-C cables, and Velcro cable ties are here, as you’d expect, but did you know AmazonBasics has a UPS power supply? An LED mouse pad? A cool retractable Lightning cable? Yeah, me either. Be sure to head over to Amazon to see all of the deals; chances are there’s something you can use.


VPNs have been in the news, and whether you want to get around video geoblocks, circumvent proxy filters, or just keep prying eyes out of your browsing data while using sketchy public Wi-Fi, reader-favorite Private Internet Access has a deal to fit your needs.

Private Internet Access doesn’t do much in the way of discounting, but they offer exclusive pricing and packages just for our readers that you won’t find anywhere else. Here are your options, and what you’d pay if you bought the same plan elsewhere:

These deals are only for our readers, but we aren’t sure how long they’ll be available, so go ahead and sign up while you can.

BEST HOME DEALS

Aged & Oar Duo Glasses and Sphere Ice Molds | 15% Off | Discount shown at checkout

Aged & Ore’s Duo Glasses were a Kickstarter hit back in February, and now, you can buy as many as you want immediate shipping, for 15% off.

Each Duo Glass is hand-blown, and has subtle 1 oz. measurement lines integrated into the design, so you can pour a perfect shot or measure a simple cocktail without dirtying up any other dishes. The best part though? They come with their own sphere ice molds that are designed to nestle perfectly at the bottom of the glass. How...cool is that?

Just note that you’ll see the 15% discount automatically at checkout. Cheers!


Have you ever noticed in Home Alone that Kevin’s mom has a little gift wrapping station set up in her bedroom? She does, and it’s quite tidy. I’m not here to issue an indictment on her parenting skills, but I just want to say that if the type of person who can accidentally leave her 8-year-old behind while she crosses the Atlantic can keep her wrapping paper neat, then so can you.

At the very least, contain it all in this $4 Whitmor Clear Gift Wrap Organizer, which you can stuff in a closet or under the bed when you’re not actively wrapping. It hold up to 25 rolls, zips up, and makes you look like your life is in order. The only downside is that it’s an add-on item.


Just as the Contigo Autoseal travel mug is one of our readers’ favorites for keeping drinks hot, this Contigo Autoseal Stainless Steel Water Bottle is highly adept at keeping your beverages icy cold. In fact, the bottle, down to just $11 in the highly appropriate iced aqua color, keeps your drink cold for up to 28 hours, thanks to vacuum insulation, plus an autoseal button keeps all liquid where it’s meant to be between sips. Throw in the fact that it’s dishwasher safe, and that’s enough to seal the deal for us when it comes to this water bottle.


I thought blenders were the one kitchen appliance that couldn’t really be improved upon any further — until I saw this $30 PopBabies Portable Blender, and realized that the next step for the blender was leaving the kitchen all together.

This small model makes one shake or smoothie at a time — perfect for on-the-go use at your office or wherever — but don’t let its size fool you; it’s powerful enough to obliterate any ice cubes and frozen fruit that comes its way. The blender contains lithium batteries that are rechargeable via USB. Plus, it’s relatively easy to clean and comes with a free funnel and ice cube tray. Buy yours today (you’ll want to clip the 5% coupon, though $30 is already a low price for this PopBaby), and rejoice, for a cord no longer ties you down.


There are two kinds of people when it comes to receiving tools as a gift. Some would be at best disappointed and at worst devastated to open something like the Black + Decker 75-Piece 20-Volt MAX Project Kit on Christmas morning. Then there are those who would love nothing more than a SKIL 15-Amp 7.25" Circular Saw or Campbell Hausfeld 3-Gallon Inflation and Fastening Compressor with Accessory Kit.

If you’re shopping for the latter type, these Walmart deals are pretty solid for mid-range tools. And there’s also a Stanley 167-Piece Home Repair Mixed Tool Set for $25, which may not be glamorous but sure would be handy for a newly keyed homeowner or young adult just leaving the nest. It’s up to you to determine whether the gift recipients in your life would be delighted or distressed to get these items; may the odds be ever in your favor.


Probably the last thing you need in your house is more toys. But ‘tis the season of gifting, so you know they’re coming. Be prepared to contain them with the Melissa & Doug Toy Chest, which has never been cheaper than it is today at $54.

It’s a genius business plan, really. Melissa & Doug makes tons of cool toys you can’t resist buying, and then makes even more money by selling you a place to store said toys. Up next: Melissa & Doug branded coffee? So you can work longer hours and afford to buy even more toys...


Roombas get all the glory, but don’t let name recognition overshadow an excellent deal on an equally efficient, if not better, robotic vacuum. Anker’s slim Eufy RoboVac 11S is a favorite of our readers, and today, you can use promo code KINJAT008 to clean it out for just $149, the same price as Cyber Monday. The 11S is extremely quiet, extra slim for tight spaces, and it sucks up anything in its path with ease.


I know this thing is called a Camp Cup, but Miir’s popular drinking vessel will be your favorite mug whether you’re using it in the woods, at home, or in the office.

From our review on The Inventory:

The MiiR Camp Cup stays true to the classic form factor, while adding a generously-sized handle, snap-on sip-through lid, double wall vacuum insulation, and medical grade stainless steel construction that won’t sweat, burn you, or transfer flavor.

Every color is about 30% off right now (black and white are always cheaper than the more fun designs), and our exclusive 15KINJADEAL promo code will save you an extra 15% at checkout. That brings the cheapest ones down to $15, which is right in stocking stuffer territory.


If your refrigerator doesn’t have an automatic ice maker, or if you just want one for something like a boat or an RV, this countertop model can produce up to 26 pounds of ice per day.

You could also use it as a backup ice source for your holiday gatherings, since the ice always seems to run out long before the beverages. At $40 off, it’ll eventually pay for itself in all those bags of ice you no longer have to buy.


Cold brew coffee is basically the only kind of coffee I like, and when there wasn’t a Starbucks readily available, I’d been using the popular Takeya cold brew pitcher for over a year to make it at home. That all changed when my mother-in-law got me OXO’s alternative last Christmas, and it quickly became one of my favorite possessions.

The Takeya is fine. Good, even, especially for under $20. But at Shane’s recommendation, I wanted to try the OXO, and wow is it stellar. The video above tells you everything you need to know about how it works, but I promise you that the coffee you get after 24 hours of steeping is potent, delicious, and and can easily last you over a week, even if you don’t dilute it as much as OXO recommends.

Its MSRP is $50, and as an OXO product, that’s about what you’ll typically pay. Right now though, you can get it for $42. It didn’t even go on sale during Black Friday, so you know this is rare.


Everyone eats, so you can’t go wrong with giving even the most insignificant acquaintance a food gift basket for the holidays. It’s an easy present (that doesn’t even require wrapping), especially considering Target is taking 20% off all food gift baskets through December 7. And there’s truly a basket for all palates: For instance, chocolate lovers will melt over this Godiva tower, caffeine addicts will be abuzz with delight thanks to this coffee-themed haul, and giftees with the munchies will be stoked about this basket o’ snacks. Plus, all of the foods included in the baskets seem to be nonperishable, so nothing will be stale by the time Santa arrives. A very delicious deal indeed.


Baking a cool cake has never been easier than it is with a bundt. The only bundt con — the fact that a hole occupies the middle of your cake instead of, uh, more cake — if far outweighed by the pros, which include super easy slicing and specials pans for creating impressive designs without any extra effort at all.

This $24 Nordic Ware Jubilee Bundt Pan is an especially inexpensive, yet aesthetically pleasing example of one such tool. Simply pour your batter into the mold, bake, then flip over once the cake is cooled, as you would do with any other cake pan. Voila! You’re a geometric bundt cake-baking artist.


I know, I know. This deal is the wurst. Basically, in a very late capitalist maneuver, Johnsonville made a Sizzling Sausage Grill that fits only the brand’s own brats. By no means is this a device your kitchen needs, but for reasons we can’t quite understand ourselves, it’s a device that the whole team here at The Inventory wants, now that it’s been brat to our attention.

Maybe it’s the prospect of evenly crisped links. Or the lack of potential splatter. Or the built-in temperature probe that alerts you the moment your sausages are fully cooked. Or maybe, it’s just that this thing is so damn ridiculous, and also sausages are so damn good, that it’s worth $61 (down from $80) simply to make this bizarre tool a part your grilling arsenal. Anyway, here’s the piping hot link to buy, should you so choose:


If you’re ultra Type A, you may have run into a holiday dilemma regarding stockings this year: You’ve already got all the stuff to fill them, so you want to go ahead and do that to mark one more thing off your checklist, but you tried and the stockings got too heavy to stay on the mantel with traditional hooks. Sure, you could take them down once they’re stuffed, but they’re part of your festive decor!

This Metal Christmas Stocking Holder Stand is the answer to your problem. It holds up to six stockings, and Walmart will even personalize it for free. I wouldn’t try loading it up if your stockings are full of bricks or something, but it should be a perfect solution if you’re normal and don’t give people gifts you snatched up from an empty construction site.


With this set of five OXO Good Grips Pop Containers, the days of snacks going stale are no more. $42 is the best deal we’ve seen on this set since May, and it makes a great holiday gift even if you don’t need it for yourself. They look a lot classier than chip clips, and you’re way less likely to lose them too.


Looking to get some trendy mid-century modern look without spending a fortune? Amazon’s got you covered with deals on a ton of Rivet, Stone and Beam, and AmazonBasics-branded furniture, for a limited time.

Over 150 products are included in this sale, ranging from mirrors and lamps all the way to mattresses and full-sized leather sofas.


If you’re sick of renting carpet washers every time you spot a new stain, you can buy your own for $99 today, within $2 of an all-time low. The Bissell SpotClean has a squeaky-clean 4.2 star review average from over 4,000 customers, and includes a number of tools for floors, stairs, and furniture.

Just prepare to be disturbed. Deep cleaning a carpet can be a revealing experience that a lot of people aren’t prepared for.


This microfiber towel is considered by many detailing aficionados to be the best for drying off your car after you wash it. In fact, I can personally confirm that it’s less a towel and more a towel-shaped sponge. It’s also down to within a few cents of the best price Amazon’s listed all year, so grab a bunch and stuff them in stockings.


Cooking eggs isn’t exactly rocket science, but I’d say the ability to make soft, medium, and hard boiled eggs, plus omelettes and poached eggs at the touch of a button is worth $15. The Dash is Amazon’s top-selling egg cooker, and carries a truly stellar 4.4 star review average from over 7,000 customers, so get it while it’s on sale for its best price of the year.

Note: Usually, these sales are only for one color, but as of the time of this writing, you can pick from any of them.


Why pay for an electric scooter by the minute when you can just buy one outright for the best price ever? The Swagtron City Commuter can cruise at 18 mph for 6-12 miles, depending on conditions, and it even has a built-in phone holder and an app that can toggle your headlight, set your cruise control, and more.

At $271 (down from the usual $360-$400), it’s a better long term investment than the plague of electric scooters that befell our cities this year. Just don’t leave it in the middle of the damn sidewalk, please.


Whether you just bought an Instant Pot on Cyber Monday, or you’re a pressure cooking veteran who’s ready to graduate to new types of recipes, silicone accessories are flexible (literally), space-saving, and easy to clean.

Instant Pot makes its own line of silicone gear, and all of it is on sale right now for the best prices since January. The steam basket and steam rack are all but essential, while the springform cake and loaf pans (yes, cake and loaf pans made of silicone) are great for making desserts. It’s all cheap, it’s all designed for the Instant Pot, and it’s all dishwasher safe, so get cooking.


If you’re expecting to take part in a White Elephant game this holiday season, you could do worse than to bring this Bella Cotton Candy Maker, currently on sale for $17 at Walmart. It’s unexpected, kitschy, and a little weird without being totally useless junk, and these are the qualities of a successful Yankee Swap gift.

Whatever lucky giftee walks away with it will suddenly be able to throw a much more festive New Year’s Eve party, and you might be able to get away with stealing back your own present. I mean, look at that Pinterest/Insta-worthy photo! You can’t tell me you don’t want that kind of beauty in your life.


It’s only a matter of time before we’re all buried in snow. Be prepared when that fateful day finally arrives, and get (at least) one of these AmazonBasics 1500 Watt Space Heaters in either black or silver for the poorly insulated corners of your house. Currently on sale for $20, this little ceramic hottie features an adjustable thermostat and three output options: low, high, or fan only. Plus, it has an easy-carry handle so you can take it with you as you move throughout your home. I expect this will be a hot commodity, what with temperatures dropping by the second, so get yours now or risk being left out in the cold.


Once you’ve gotten used to keeping a multi-tool on you, it can be hard to go without. But the TSA doesn’t care about that, and good luck getting your Leatherman on a plane.

The Gerber Shard isn’t as fancy as a lot of mini tool gizmos, but it’s airline approved and it fits on your keychain — and it’s $5. It features three drivers, a wire stripper, a pry bar, and a bottle opener, so maybe it’s just enough to keep you from having handy gadget withdrawals in “no weapons” situations. (It’s also a nice little gift for people that don’t really need or want anything else.)


You know you’re officially an adult when a chest freezer makes it onto your wish list, even if it’s only in a vague “that would be nice to have” sense. Whether it would live in your garage or right in the kitchen, it’s a life improvement you can’t fully appreciate until you’ve grown up.

With the Arctic King 5-Cubic-Foot Chest Freezer, on sale for $155 at Walmart, you’ll finally have a place to stash your stock of frozen foods. And no judgment if it’s nothing but cartons of Halo Top. We all have our weaknesses.


If kitchen utensils were sentient, I imagine these would take offense to being called lazy. They have built-in notches to help them balance on the rims of your cookware. How is that lazy? If anything, it’s going above and beyond.

I suppose the “lazy” in “Rachael Ray Silicone 3-Piece Lazy Tools Set” ($12 at Walmart and Amazon) might be a reference to the chef who uses them, like, “ha, you’re too lazy to hold this spatula for 30 minutes while your sauce reduces.” But again, is that really lazy? To me, it seems more sensible. Let your kitchen implements handle themselves while you focus on some mise en place or something. Work smart, not hard.


For a limited time, Amazon will sell you three pouches of Tide HE-compatible laundry detergent (totaling 144 ounces or 93 loads) for just $14 after you clip the 20% coupon.

These pouches are designed basically as refills for plastic Tide bottles, but as long as that doesn’t bother you, this is a fantastic price-per-ounce for any detergent, let alone name brand. Just be sure to clip the coupon on the page, and use Amazon Subscribe & Save for even more savings.


If you still don’t have an Instant Pot in your kitchen (or want a second; it’s not that crazy!), the 6 quart Wi-Fi model is back down to $90, the same price as Cyber Monday.

In addition to pressure cooking (which is a miracle), this is also our readers’ favorite slow cooker, and one of their favorite rice cookers too. To put it simply, it’s one of the most versatile kitchen gadgets you can own.


You can certainly get through life without a full-length mirror, but they’re awfully handy to have when you’re trying out new ensembles. And if you forego the cheap over-the-door kind in favor of a nice leaner, a big mirror can even be a nice decor touch.

This Sandberg Rose Gold Full Length Leaner Mirror features a super now aesthetic and, at 65" x 31", it’ll let you check yourself out from head to toe to avoid embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions. And if you’re some kind of alien who’s not into rose gold, don’t worry: There are plenty of other finishes available.


Firstleaf is an online wine club that learns your preferences, offers tons of options, and most importantly, saves you money compared to buying from the store. It’s a solid deal any time, but it’s even better for our readers from now through the holidays.

Every new Firstleaf member gets an introductory delivery with three bottles of wine for just $15, plus $5 shipping. Every box thereafter includes six bottles for $80, plus $10 shipping. If you use this link and promo code Kinja when you sign up though, you’ll get free shipping on every box for your entire first year. That’ll save you over $100 if you get a new box every month.

BEST CLOTHING & LIFESTYLE DEALS

Finding the perfect liquid eyeliner is no easy task. But turns out, finding two perfect liquid eyeliners is easier than it’s ever been today. Stila is running a buy one, get one free promotion on all their eyeliners today only, which includes the cult-favorite Stay All Day Liquid Eye Liner. As someone who has worn this eyeliner pretty much every day for the past seven years, I’d recommend using this sale to stock up, or perhaps try something new. The Micro Tip Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner, for instance, has a thinner tip for drawing finer lines, so you can use the original to go bold, and the micro tip for a subtle look, all for a mere $22.


Why are you still using a manual toothbrush? Do you know what year it is? If price is a factor, just know that Walmart has the Oral-B 1000 CrossAction Electric Toothbrush for $40, but it actually comes out to $30 if you redeem the $10 rebate.

These can be some of your resolutions for 2019: Start taking better care of yourself, like by upgrading to an electric toothbrush, and stop putting off small tasks that need to get done, like by mailing in your rebate before it expires in January. Don’t think. Just do.


You might remember Very Bradley as the brand of the paisley quilted tote carried by your great aunt, but in recent years, the retailer has expanded their prints beyond florals into more modern patterns. And I must admit, their solid bags, duffels, pouches, and other travel accessories are downright stylish. If you’re still on the hunt for a holiday gift for said aunt, and really any lady you know, consider taking advantage of Vera Bradley’s current 30% off sitewide sale. There’s a reason that tote from years back is so memorable; these bags hold up. And there are patterns to please any taste — yes, including good ol’ paisley.


All of our teams suck, and yet, we love them anyway. If you need an easy gift idea for a football fan, Fanatics is bundling a team-branded tee and hat for around $20 today. A few teams (like the Packers and Seahawks) are actually only $16, and some other (the Browns?) are priced at $30, but the majority of the bundles are only $20. I suggest spiking the gift at the feet of its recipient on Christmas morning.


Everyone knows that the best kind of present is one that includes multiple presents, so these $7 Target Beauty Boxes would truly be the gift that keeps on giving. There are two discounted boxes — one with six skincare products for women and the other featuring six grooming favorites for men — that are luxurious enough to be gifted while also being useful in terms address common winter skin issues like dryness and dullness. Plus, each individual item is the ideal size for holiday travels. Quite a beautiful deal, if you ask me.


There are some major football games on the horizon; be your best tailgating self with this $50 Pit Boss Single-Burner Portable Gas Grill. With 308 square inches of cooking space, you can prepare burgers, sausages, and even some veggies if you want to be healthy about it.

Whether your team wins or loses, you’ll be better equipped to react to it if you’re well fed. And if your team’s not even playing in any of the big postseason matchups, well, you can eat your feelings. I’ll be right there with you. It was a rough year to be an Auburn Tiger.


I know, $59 for an adult bike seems crazy. And maybe you are rolling the dice a little bit with this Roadmaster 26" Granite Peak Men’s or Women’s Mountain Bike. But the reviews are overall positive, and the price is tough to beat. I probably wouldn’t ride it on serious trails or even in a triathlon, but for just cruising around the neighborhood, it’s worth a try.


Bryker Hyde Quick Draw Minimalist Wallet | $21 | Amazon | Promo code Kinjadeal30

Bryker Hyde’s Quick Draw was one of the first Kickstarter wallets that we really fell in love with over here. Its key innovation was completely eliminating the bulk-adding cash pocket and replacing it with a metal money clip at the fold, but everything about the wallet from its leather to its stitching is top notch.

Nearly a year later, you can now buy the wallet on Amazon, and our readers can get it for just $21 with promo code Kinjadeal30. That code will work on any color, on both the ID-inside and ID-outside versions. Needless to say, these would make great stocking stuffers for anyone that needs to slim down their wallet...without slimming down yours...because it’s $21.



Winter demands utility over style; after all, not freezing to death usually take precedence over looking good. But Lands’ End makes the kind of winter stuff that a preppier, more put-together you would wear, like cozy flannels and wool coats, as opposed to the ratty sweaters and sweatsuits you often resort to this time of year. Now, that classic cold-weather look is more attainable than ever with 50% off full-price items at the retailer, today only. Just use promo code SHINE, along with pin 3361, and outfit yourself and your entire family in the stylish winter wardrobe you all deserve.


The Perfect Fitness Multi-Gym can turn any doorway into a pull-up bar, and helps you do perfect push-ups and sit-ups as well. It rarely sees discounts from its usual $35, and today’s $28 deal is a new all-time low. Just be sure to get yours before they’re all swoled out.


J.Crew is taking their latest flash sale very literally: For a mere 48 hours, you and your whole crew can get a whopping 48% at J.Crew. Just use promo code 48HOURS at checkout. The promotion includes thousands of preppy classics for men, women, and kids, which means you’ve got two days to refresh the whole gang’s winter wardrobe starting...now.


Outdoor adventures tend to go more smoothly if you’re adequately equipped, and Backcountry is here to help with 20% off select full-price camp and climb items via promo code Take20CC.

Marmot, Kelty, and Pelican are among the discounted brands, so you can gear up with tents, packs, sleeping bags, and all the other necessary gear for a trip into the wilderness. Just don’t stay out there too long! We miss you when you’re gone.


You might as well pack all your shoes that aren’t boots into storage; for the next few months, cold temperatures call for footwear that covers as much of your leg as possible. Luckily, Nordstrom Rack is here for your calves’ warmth with a major Frye Flash Event. Men’s and women’s shoes — including those classic Frye boots — are up to 50% off, along with Frye handbags and men’s accessories, like scarves, backpacks, gloves, and hats. Rest assured, these items can all stand up to winter weather, but they won’t stick around long, so shop soon.


We’re huge fans of Coalatree’s outdoor-friendly Trailhead pants and shorts, and for a limited time, you can get them for 30% off, plus a free camping hammock when you spend $75 or more.

The pants are water-resistant, anti-microbial, easily packable, and a little bit stretchy for added flexibility while you hike (or just walk around town). Both men’s and women’s cuts, as well as the shorts, are included in the sale, and the aforementioned hammock will automatically appear in your cart when you meet the spending threshold. You’ll also get free shipping on orders over $100, so stock up on gifts.


If you missed out on the Philips OneBlade’s $20 Black Friday deal (or if you love it so much that you already want a second one), it’s back down to $22 on Amazon right now, which is still $13 less than usual, and an incredible value for one of our favorite shaving products ever.

The Face + Body version is also on sale for an all-time low $37. It looks similar, but it includes a second blade in the box, a special comb for body hair (yes, even down there), and a better battery than the original.


At the intersection of “cute” and “comfortable,” you will find Clarks. And even though deals week seems like a decade ago, the footwear brand is throwing it back to Cyber Monday today with a one-day only sale on their site.

Shoppers can take an extra 40% off boots, slippers, and more for both men and women (the discount will be applied at checkout). Plus, snag $30 off your purchase of $100 or more with promo code SAVE30.


If you’ve ever wanted to own a tiny axe, now’s your chance. IMO, the mini hatchet alone makes the Whetstone Multi-Function 10-in-1 Camping Tool totally worth today’s $6 price; the fact that it also has a hammer, pliers, screwdrivers, and several other functions is just a fun bonus.


In the words of the great philosophers ZZ Top, every girl’s crazy about a sharp dressed man. Becoming one of those men is easier than you think, especially with today’s sale on men’s fashion at Amazon. Shirts, shoes, jackets, sweaters, and more are discounted — something for every occasion.


Shorten your mental checklist of smartphone-wallet-keys to just two components with this stick-on wallet case.

Make sure to clip the coupon and use the promo code KP8RYT4K to bring the price down to $8.


What do you get this holiday season for the person that loves water, doesn’t have a ton of storage space, and enjoys having shoulders that feel like they’re on fire?

Computer! <bleep bloop bleep bloop>

An inflatable kayak! Walmart’s discounting a single seater from Intex to $60 today. It’snot as stable as a real kayak, but it can fit in the trunk of your car or the back of a closet with ease.


While most eye masks try to provide as little compression as possible, IMAK’s compression pain relief mask lightly presses around your eyes by design to help with headaches, migraines, and sinus pain. You can even throw it in the freezer for cooling (but not too cooling) relief when you go to bed.

$9 is the best price Amazon’s listed all year, and it makes a great stocking stuffer for light sleepers and headache sufferers.


Everlane’s Choose What You Pay section (which, for the unindoctrinated, allows shoppers to choose from three different, discounted price points for an item) is always a good source of savings on some of the brand’s coveted, stylish basics, but it’s usually pretty limited. That is, until now. Everlane has flooded their Choose What You Pay sections for both men and women with a ton of overstocked inventory, including a wide selection of shoes for the ladies. This is likely the last you’ll see of these styles, so take your pick before they sell out, as much of Everlane’s offerings are wont to do.


Beauty megastore Sephora carries some of the best beauty staples year round, plus some really nice holiday gift sets during the most wonderful time of the year. If you’re in the market for either, now would be a great time to stock up, since Sephora is currently hosting its Beauty Insider holiday event. Insiders (aka Sephora reward program members — it’s free to join) can save $15 on purchases of $75 or more; that’s 20% off their whole order. Meanwhile, reward program members at the VIB and Rouge levels can save $20 and $25, respectively, off their purchases of $75 and up. Just use promo code 2018HOORAY, and be sure to check out before December 12, when this beauty of a sale finally fades.


No matter how what method you use to commute, it has drawbacks. Public transportation makes you beholden to other people’s schedules, driving a car forces you to combat traffic and is environmentally unfriendly, and riding a bike means you’ll arrive at the office winded and drenched in sweat.


Nailing a solid smoky eye is one of the most fundamental, yet arduous makeup skills that one can acquire, but Urban Decay’s Naked Smoky Palette makes it flat-out easy. Today, this cult-favorite is just $25, down from its usual price of $54, at Nordstrom Rack.

Like much of the brand’s Naked range, the palette features 12 shades of wearable neutral shadows in both matte and shimmery textures that you will want to use for holiday party season, and they won’t even make you look like a raccoon. Get a palette of your own ASAP before it sells out or the deal goes up in smoke.


If you’re having trouble sleeping, suffering from anxiety, or having trouble sleeping because you’re suffering from anxiety, Sunday Scaries CBD gummies could help. Jolie Kerr shared her thoughts on them for The Inventory, and now, our readers can save 15% for the always-stressful holiday season with promo code kinja15.

That applies to the regular gummies, the vegan versions, and the pure CBD tincture, with extra savings available if you buy in bulk, so your wallet can rest as easy as you will.

BEST MEDIA DEALS

Star Wars Storyboards is a gift that will send any true Star Wars fan over the moon (or not-a-moon), and at $21, it’s within a few cents of its best price ever.

The book includes 352 pages of original storyboards and notes from the original trilogy, including never-before-published art from deleted or never-filmed scenes.

For more art book inspiration, check out our roundup over on The Inventory.


There are quite a few permutations of the Lord of the Rings films out there on Blu-ray, but the extended editions are the ones you want, and the extended trilogy pack is down to $44 at at Amazon today, complete with all three extended films totaling 11 hours, plus 26 hours of special features to boot. No wonder it’s the best selling Blu-ray in Kinja Deals history by a wide margin.

This sees rare and brief price drops into the sub-$30 range, including in early November this year. But excluding those sales, this is about $11 less than usual, and could be your last best chance to save before Christmas.


This is the Star Wars gift idea you’ve been looking for. Star Wars: The Blueprints is the ultimate coffee table book for any fan of the series, and at $38, it’s never been cheaper on Amazon than it is right now. The book features 250 insanely detailed blueprints of the ships and locations you know and love, 500 full-color photographs and illustrations, and 10 gatefolds that fold out for an immersive experience.


Breath of the Wild is one of the greatest games ever made, so we’ll forgive Nintendo for spiking the football with a ~400 page hardcover compendium full of design artwork, commentary about the game’s development, and a history of the Breath of the Wild’s take on Hyrule.

The book only just came out, but its price has been chopped down like so many blades of grass to an all-time low $19 today. That’s not a lot of rupees for an incredible gift for any Nintendo fan.

BEST GAMING DEALS

If you were waiting for a good discount to dive back into the world of XCOM, Walmart has marked the complete collection down to $30 on both PS4 and Xbox One today. That includes the base game, the absolutely stellar War of the Chosen DLC, plus a few smaller DLC packs. Good luck, Commander.


The Switch Pro controller isn’t just one of the best ways to control your Nintendo Switch, it might be one of the best gamepads ever made, period. If you have a Switch and still haven’t picked one up, $60 is the same price we were seeing on Black Friday. It’s not a huge discount, but we rarely see it drop below $64.


To be a child is to wish for the massive, ridiculous Barbie DreamHouse, with its dangerous outdoor slide to a second-floor pool and much other questionable use of space. The price for the house alone has been hovering around $179 all season, but for some reason Walmart decided to drop it to $169 and throw in a choice of two free Barbie Fashionista dolls.

The house already featured a working elevator, lights and sounds, and rooms full of transforming furniture. I guess someone just decided that it would be cruel to leave the included puppy alone, with no humans to take care of it.


Robotics and coding are the future; resistance is futile. Give your kids a head start on employability by having them play with coding robots from today’s Amazon Gold Box.

It includes Wonder Workshop’s Dash and Cue robots and a few accessories, but the best value is either the Dot and Dash Bundle for $167 or the Dash Coding Challenge and Sketch Bundle for $124. Really, the important thing is that your children establish a rapport with the machines early on so that your family will have a chance at surviving the uprising.


Probably the last thing you need in your house is more toys. But ‘tis the season of gifting, so you know they’re coming. Be prepared to contain them with the Melissa & Doug Toy Chest, which has never been cheaper than it is today at $54.

It’s a genius business plan, really. Melissa & Doug makes tons of cool toys you can’t resist buying, and then makes even more money by selling you a place to store said toys. Up next: Melissa & Doug branded coffee? So you can work longer hours and afford to buy even more toys...


Blocks Desk Toys | 40% Off | Speks | Promo code BLOCKON

There’s no such thing as having too many desk toys, and Blocks by Speks are some of the best I’ve played with so far.

Blocks are straight or L-shaped plastic blocks with magnets inside. They snap together into a bunch of different shapes, and are rewarding whether you’re trying to build something cohesive, or just idly fiddling with them in one hand while you use your mouse in the other, which is how I usually find myself playing with them.

You can grab a set today for just $18 with promo code BLOCKON, plus free shipping. That’s the best deal yet, so what are you waiting for? You deserve a set. (Alternatively, they’d make great stocking stuffers.)


When you’re too young to drive a car, zooming around on an electric toy of some kind is as rad as it gets. Actually, normal scooters are pretty fun, too.

But there’s no need to choose sides here — Walmart’s got traditional scooters, hoverboards, powered 2-wheelers, and various other awesome vehicles starting at just $15, so everyone’s a winner. Unless you’re talking about racing, in which case whoever’s on the Razor Metro probably has an edge.


This $30 CORSAIR M65 Pro mouse is absolute gamer clickbait.

RGB lighting? Check.
12,000 DPI sensor? Check.
Customizable weight? Check.
On-the-fly DPI switching? Check.
Too-weird-for-the-office design? CHECK.

This FPS-focused, super clicky model typically sells for around $50-60, and this is the best price Amazon’s ever listed.


These discounted and powerful gaming computers from CyberPower PC could fool friends into thinking you built your own rig. Both $1,700 rigs are fully specced out, offering 16GB of RAM, and the powerful NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20 series graphics cards.

But, of course, there are a few key differences that go beyond the keyboard and the case. The SLC10200CPG offers an i9, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070, and a 1TB SSD, while the GXiVR8080A3 rocks an i7, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080, and 240GB SSD and 1TB HD for storage. Also, the former doesn’t ship with a WiFi card but that may be less of a priority for hardliners who swear by the ethernet cable.


Happy Smash week, one and all. Nintendo’s insanely huge new fighter comes out on Friday, which means this is your last week to preorder on Amazon to get a $10 Prime credit added to your account.

Just note that the code will be added to your account 30-35 days after the game ships, and that this is only available on the physical copy, not digital.

If you want to play it with a GameCube controller, as nature intended, you don’t forget to order the gamepad and a USB adapter as well.


Anki Overdrive is the smartphone-age love child of slot cars and Mario Kart, and you can save big on the standard and Fast & Furious Edition starter kits today.

From our deal researcher Corey, who owns the Fast & Furious Edition:

The Fast & Furious Edition is compatible with all other Anki Overdrive cars and accessories, and expands on the original with new cars, game modes. and movie dialogue. It’s a huge hit in our house among my kids, their friends, and especially over beers with my adult friends. There’s even a single-player mode that I find myself booting up after everyone goes home and my kids are sleep. I grind for new weapons and powerups that I later use to decimate my opponents - yeah, usually kids. There are no participation trophies in my house.

Both kits include two cars and enough track pieces to build eight different raceways, and both allow you to add new cars and track pieces that you bought a la carte whenever you want. The Fast & Furious Edition and the standard set are both $80.


Consider this post a Hogwarts acceptance letter — that is, if Hogwarts also taught coding. Wizards who also aspire to become code whizzes can combine their interests with this Kano Harry Potter Coding Kit, now on sale for $80. Students build their own coding wand, and with just a swish and flick, they’ll see instant effects on their screen while also learning the fundamentals of code. There are 70-plus creative challenges for kids ages 6 and up to master before they can confidently say, “Mischief managed.”


Board games are super fun, but they take up a lot of real estate when your collection reaches a certain size. Humble Bundle knows that we don’t all have space for a giant cabinet of amusements, so they’ve created a digital assemblage to entertain you and take up zero room (except in your Steam library, but that’s already overflowing, so a few new additions won’t hurt).

For $1, they’ll give you seven ports of games like Harald and Agricola for platforms ranging from Android to Mac. Pay $7 or more to unlock 11 more games, including Pandemic and Splendor. I’m not entirely sure about the logistics of having friends over for game night when you have to sit in front of a computer to play, but I’m sure there’s a way to make it work. The human spirit is predisposed to overcome all kinds of obstacles.


With Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft basically created the Netflix of video games, and it’s a great deal at its usual $10 per month. But for a limited time, you can get a gift card for a whole year for just $70.

Xbox Game Pass grants you access to newer releases like State of Decay 2 and Sea of Thieves, as well as classics like KOTOR and all of the Gears of War games. The only catch is that you’ll be auto-renewed at the standard rate after the year is up, but hopefully there will be another deal before that happens, right?
