For a rundown of the best apparel and lifestyle Memorial Day sales, head over to this post.
Top Tech Deals
Shep played around with the PowerCore Fusion when it first launched, and loved it, mostly for the fact that it’s the only Anker battery pack that you can charge by plugging straight into the wall. You can read all of his impressions here, and then head over to Amazon to get yours.
Integrated sound bars are having their moment, but if you prefer old-fashioned home theater audio setups, these well-reviewed Polk Audio speakers are cheaper than ever. Just remember that you’ll need an AV receiver to use them.
My car battery doesn’t even last three years, so I can’t begin to imagine how this Logitech mouse can survive for that long. This is the best price we’ve ever seen on the Marathon Mouse, so I’d sprint over to Amazon to order one, if I were you.
USB battery packs are basically expensive paperweights if you don’t have a cable handy to actually plug them into your phone, but that’ll never be an issue with the Jackery Bolt, which includes built-in Lightning and microUSB cables, in addition to a USB port.
If you want to keep your iPhone looking pristine, Anker’s selling 2-packs of tempered glass screen protectors for the 7 and 7 Plus for just $4 today. Just be sure to buy the right size for your phone, and don’t forget the promo codes below.
The past year or so has seen a welcome deluge of Wi-Fi router innovation, and Portal seems to be one of the best newcomers in the space, particularly for smaller dwellings in congested, urban environments.
Portal includes app-based configuration, nine internal antennas, and mesh capabilities if you buy more than one...table stakes these days for a good router. But while almost all home Wi-Fi routers limit you to a small number of public channels over 5GHz, Portal also opens up four “DFS” channels that are typically reserved for military use and commercial radar.
The law allows home routers to use these DFS channels, but they must shift off of them for a set amount of time whenever they detect active radar to avoid interference. Portal does just this, and moves all of your devices off of the busy channel in the background automatically, and shifts them back on when it’s safe. That means that most of the time, these channels are practically empty, so you won’t have to worry about interference from your neighbors’ Wi-Fi networks. This Digital Trends review has a thorough explanation of the technology, if you’re curious.
Portal retails for $200, and has sold for around $150 for the last few months, but for a limited time, you can try it out for $126 with promo code KINJAWIN. I bought this thing earlier this year, and absolutely love it.
Top Home Deals
I got one of these as a wedding gift last year, and it’s every bit as good as advertised. In addition to the obvious use cases like toasting bread or cooking a frozen pizza, I basically use it as my “real” oven for any recipe I can fit, since it preheats significantly faster than a full sized oven, and doesn’t heat up the entire house.
Heading out of town and want to deter thieves, or just want to wake up to a well-lit house? This programmable light switch turns any built-in light into a smart light for $17.
This model has 18 settings to choose from, including a “vacation” mode, which will randomly turn lights on throughout the day.
Yi, the manufacturer of your favorite budget action cam, also makes a well-reviewed dash cam, and you can mount it to your windshield for an all-time low $45 today with promo code YIMEMOFF. That’s a truly fantastic price for a 1080p/60 camera with built-in Wi-Fi.
Before you head out on your summer adventures, pick up a new piece (or three) of Delsey Helium luggage for under $100. Several sizes are on sale on Amazon right now, from small carry-ons to expansive 29" spinners.
Note: Check out the color options, because some are cheaper than others.
Contigo’s Autoseal travel mug has long been a reader favorite, but the new Autoseal Chill looks like a great companion water bottle. It launched last month for $23, but now you can get it for $16, an all-time low.
Update: This deal is now also available through Discount Tire (proper), in addition to Discount Tire Direct, through Saturday only.
If your tires are about due for a replacement, Discount Tire Direct is offering up to $100 in Visa gift card rebates (in addition to any manufacturer rebates) when you order four new tires, plus an additional $100 if you order wheels as well, plus an extra $60 on each if you use a Discount Tire credit card. Just enter your make and model, click the options to see tires on promotion, and you’ll see the rebate amount (either $25, $75, or $100) on the right hand side.
The Pronto hooks up to any propane tank, and reaches temperatures of up to 700 degrees, resulting in crispy crust and melted cheese, all in just five minutes. The oven almost always sells for $300, and today’s $206 deal matches a short-lived discount from April.
If you don’t have a pizza peel, Pizzacraft sells an accessory kit that also includes a cleaning brush.
Philips Wake-Up lights have long been one of our readers’ favorite products, but now Vansky is making its own version for a lot less money.
Just like the Philips light, Vansky’s Sunrise Alarm Clock fades in a sunrise-simulating light for 30 minutes prior to your designated wake-up time, and then finishes the job with your choice of six natural alarms, or an FM radio station. That means by the time your alarm goes off, your body will already have begun the process of waking up, eliminating that awful feeling of being jolted out of a deep REM cycle. You can even choose from seven different light colors, a feature that doesn’t exist on any of Philips’ models.
I’ve had a Philips Wake-Up light for years, and absolutely love it, but $24 is an insanely great price for a feature-packed alternative.
You might not need to use a Dremel all that often, but it’s one of those things everyone should keep in their tool box, if only for sanding wood and carving jack-o-lanterns, and this compact battery-operated model is marked down to $69 today on Amazon, the best price since January. There are cheaper corded models out there, but this thing is small enough for one-handed use, and it even comes with a docking station to keep the battery topped off.
Everyone should keep an inverter in their glove box for powering laptops and other electronics in the car, and $10 is a great price for this 150W model from Aukey.
Update: If you missed out last Friday, this is now back in stock.
If you want a Big Green Egg charcoal grill, but don’t want to cash in your 401(k) to buy one, this Char-Griller alternative is down to $262 for Prime members today. That’s the lowest price in months, and a great investment for meat lovers everywhere.
The Char-Griller Akorn Kamado Kooker features a 306 square inch cast iron cooking surface (which is most similar to the $829 large Big Green Egg), and traps heat inside a heavily-insulated stainless steel body. Our deal researcher, Corey, owns a BGE, and I asked him about it on Slack:
And I use my BGE for about 70% of meat meals.
Probably 90% during the warm months.
Best Father’s Day gift I’ll ever get.
Lana jokes that she’s the one who benefits most because I cook on it all the time.
Worth the price just for its ability to cook pizza, IMO.
But pork chops, lions, tenderloin are beyond incredible on it.
Obviously, this isn’t the “real thing,” but the consensus among Amazon reviewers is that it’s at least nearly as good, which sounds like a decent compromise considering it’s less than 1/3 of the price, and comes with a stable cart and folding shelves, both of which you’d need to buy separately with the Egg.
You may not think you need one of these portable jump starters, and at this very moment, you probably don’t. But there will come a time where you’re late for an appointment or stuck in the middle of nowhere, and waiting around for a good samaritan to come jump your battery just isn’t a viable option.
This model from iClever puts out a whopping 600A, which is far more than most similar products, and enough to start just about any car.
If your spring cleaning doesn’t involve revamping your home goods, what are you even doing? Add some awesome infographics to your walls with Pop Chart Lab’s 25% off sitewide sale. Get everything from the Connected Characters of Seinfeld to every single bird in North America. Enter the code KINJAPOP at checkout to see your discount.
Add even more pop art to your life with some housewares, like pint glasses, tote bags, and more at a discount. Not only are they already marked down 20-50% off, the sitewide 25% off works on them as well.
And if you need an attractive and easy way to hang your new posters, the 20% also works on poster rails.
If you’ve ever spent more than 5 seconds sorting through your mismatched food containers to find the right lid, it’s time to throw them all out and upgrade to the uber-popular Rubbermaid Easy Find Lid system.
These containers come in six different sizes, and yet you only have to deal with three different lids, making it much easier to find the right one. The 42 piece set is on sale for $20 today on Amazon. We’ve seen better prices in the past, but this set has been selling for around $24 pretty consistently this year, so you’re saving about $4.
Top Lifestyle Deals
Now that the weather’s nice enough to exercise outdoors (or at least tell yourself that you will), Amazon’s running a pretty solid Memorial Day sale on Adidas athletic accessories. You won’t find any tops or bottoms, but this is a great chance to stock up on socks, underwear, hats, and more.
It’s that time again. Nordstrom Rack has brought back their Clear the Rack sale and it’s full (and I mean FULL) of really incredible deals. Designer clothing, brands you’ve never heard of, everything an extra 25% off. What are you waiting for?
Uniqlo’s affordability is sometimes thwarted by the shipping costs, so when there’s free shipping, you know it’s a big deal. From now until Monday, get any order (including their newly-launched, kickass collaboration with Nintendo) shipped to you for free. Now go enjoy your extra day off.
What better way to get ready for the better weather than discounted Under Armour gear? This sale is full of practically every style you can think of, with styles for both men and women. From the classic Under Armour long-sleeves to training shoes to their Threadborne microthread technology, this gear is perfect for running outside in the warmer months.
Top Gaming Deals
If you missed out on the pretty big savings last year on the Steam Link, here’s your chance. Grab one for $20 and get connected for a whole lot less.
Life Is Strange is getting a sequel, so if you missed out on the first season, Amazon will sell you a Steam key for $7 today, or about $13 less than usual. I want to rewind my life and play it again for the first time.
What better way to celebrate one of the greatest games ever than with a gorgeous, full-color hardcover game guide? The official collector’s edition guide for Breath of the Wild includes a map poster, a 16-page art section, and yes, even a guide for getting through the game.
$24 is a match for the lowest price Amazon’s listed, and the same amount you would have paid if you preordered.
