Top Tech Deals
Once you’ve use a CyberPower’s swiveling surge protectors, every other outlet solution will feel inferior. Since it lets you position your plugs on the side, rather than sticking straight out, you can push furniture right up against the outlet. It’s a small detail that makes a huge difference. Today on Amazon, get it for just $8, or $15 for a model with two USB ports.
News flash: 6TB external drives exist, and you can get one for $150 from WD. And for how small it is, it’s insane that it can hold that much.
Update: These deals expire today, so place your orders now.
Amazon’s Father’s Day device deals just went live, including $20 discounts on the Kindle, Kindle Paperwhite, and Kindle Voyage, extra savings on various Kindle bundles, and less common deals on Amazon’s Echo line of smart speakers. Alexa does know some great dad jokes, so that part makes sense.
There are too many deals to list here, but head over to this post to see them all.
In celebration of pool season, Amazon’s offering all-time low prices on Sony’s new line of Bluetooth speakers, each of which includes IPX5 water resistance, great battery life, and the ability to connect multiple speakers together for room-filling sound. To help you understand the differences though, we’ve broken them all down below.
The XB10 is basically a standard single-driver Bluetooth speaker, but with a few additional features like NFC pairing, the ability to connect two together for stereo sound, and a 16 hour battery. $48 is an all-time low, and roughly $10 less than usual.
For $20 more, you get dual drivers (at the cost of battery life, which clocks in at 12 hours here), a single-color lightstrip that accents the speaker, and the ability to connect up to 10 (!!) speakers at once. It typically retails for around $100.
The XB30 doubles your battery life to 24 hours, and upgrades the light strip to include multiple colors and a strobe feature, all controlled via an app. It usually sells for about $50 more.
And finally, the XB40 adds additional lighting around the speaker cones, but otherwise seems to be exactly like the XB30. $148 is, amazingly, a ~$100 discount.
VPNs are in the news these days, and with good reason. So if you’re curious to sign up and start protecting your browsing history and personal data (or, you know, getting around websites’ geoblocks), NordVPN charges less per month than a typical trip to Starbucks.
NordVPN has long been one of the most popular and reliable VPN providers out there, and if you sign up for a one-year membership, promo code VIP70 will drop your annual price from $69 to $48. If you’re sure you want to commit, use this link instead to get a special two year plan for $79 with code 2YSpecial2017. Lifehacker has recommended Nord in some previous guides, but if you have any firsthand experience with the service, sound off in the comments!
The PowerCore II Slim appears to be the first PowerCore battery pack to include Anker’s new chipset, which delivers the fastest possible charging speeds to every USB device you own, including Quick Charge 3.0. That said, you’ll notice it’s not actually a Qualcomm-certified Quick Charge 3.0 product; it just replicates the tech on Anker’s own chip. That means less internal circuitry, and more room for battery, resulting in one of the thinnest 10,000mAh battery packs ever made.
We see deals on leaf-style HDTV antennas pretty frequently, but if you won’t settle for anything less than the brand that started the trend, you can score a huge deal on the amplified Mohu Leaf 50 today.
The Leaf 50 is rated for 50 miles, but keep in mind that that’s only are under ideal circumstances, and your actual range will likely be lower. But still, it’s just about the most powerful omnidirectional antenna you can get that doesn’t require outdoor or attic installation, and $28 is the best price we’ve ever seen, assuming you don’t mind buying an open-box model. Just be sure to use promo code Flash30 at checkout to save $12.
Top Home Deals
You might not have an immediate need for a pressure washer, but if you own a home, it’s a useful thing to stash in the back or your garage. Today only, Amazon’s spraying out deals on four different models from GreenWorks, starting at just $61, with every model available for under $100. Just remember that these prices are only available today, so get yours before they’re blasted away.
There’s also a surface cleaner accessory on sale for $19, as part of the same sale.
Tiny keychain multitools are a dime a dozen, but not many of them actually look like...keys. This ingenious little Swiss+Tech multitool is the shape and size of a standard house key, but is actually three screwdrivers, two small knives, and a bottle opener. At $7, why not?
While it’s not as simple to use as a Nespresso, this Mr. Coffee espresso machine is incredibly affordable at $57 (especially considering it’s a dual shot and includes a milk frother), and doesn’t require expensive pods to use. Plus, its 15 bars of pressure are more than sufficient for a great shot of espresso.
This Sensi thermostat might not look like much, but you can control it with an app on your phone, or even with Alexa, meaning it’s basically an uglier Nest for less than half the price. No wonder it’s actually Amazon’s #1 selling thermostat.
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.
It might not have the brand recognition of Waterpik, but this H2ofloss water flosser still boasts a 4.4 star review average from over 1,400 Amazon customers, and you can get it for just $32 right now. That even comes with 12 tips (six different kinds) to get you started. Go make your dentist proud!
OxyLED’s OxySense motion-sensing closet light is one of the best-selling products in Kinja Deals history, and it’s easy to see why. You can stick it anywhere, it turns itself on and off, and it’s super cheap. Today, add two individual lights your cart (not the 2-pack available on the page), and get both for $15 with promo code KINJA02L.
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 $270 on Amazon 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.
Amazon’s new Dash Wand has Alexa built right in, and lets you order groceries and other household goods just by scanning a barcode or using your voice. The best part though? It’s basically free.
The Dash Wand will set you back $20 upfront (not bad considering it’s a full-featured Alexa voice assistant), but once you register it, you’ll get a $20 credit in your Amazon account automatically. It’s basically the same value proposition behind Amazon’s $5 dash buttons, but the Wand seems infinitely more useful and flexible.
Plus, if you live in a city with Amazon Prime Fresh, buying the wand will get you a 90 day trial membership, so you can fully immerse yourself in Amazon’s lazy vision of the future.
Anova dominates the sales charts, but in many ways (raw heating power, looks, size, software quality), the Joule sous-vide circulator is actually the superior product, and Amazon’s running a rare $20 discount on it, for a limited time.
Promo code SOUSVIDETIME will take $20 off the original Joule White/Stainless Steel and the new Joule White. The White model is $20 cheaper to begin with, the only difference being the absence of steel accents; performance should be identical.
If you don’t have any idea what the hell I’m talking about or why you might want to buy this, Lifehacker has a great sous-vide explainer here. Spoiler alert: It’s incredibly simple, and the results are fantastic.
Everyone should keep an inverter in their glove box for powering laptops and other electronics in the car, and you can choose from two different deals from Aukey today for $19 or less. The more expensive model puts out 300W, while the 150W version is designed to fit in your cupholder, which is cool I guess?
Top Lifestyle Deals
Last year, our readers overwhelmingly said that Tommy Bahama makes the best beach chairs, but we’ve since learned that they never go on sale. Like, never. Until now that is. Choose from several different models today, all for roughly 20% off their usual prices. That’s money left over for fruity drinks.
Bar none, Sport-Brella is the ultimate beach umbrella, and Amazon’s discounting the blue model for just $41 today, if you’re willing to wait out a backorder.
Unlike a regular umbrella, Sport-Brella leans backwards and attaches to the sand with stakes, creating a kind of semi-private cocoon with enough space for a couple of chairs and a cooler. Best of all, it sets up in about five minutes (once you know what you’re doing), and can provide a full day’s worth of privacy and sun protection. Today’s price isn’t the best we’ve ever seen, but it’s a solid deal if you have a beach trip on the horizon.
This Amazon Beauty Sample Box will only set you back $12 (plus a $12 credit on select beauty items) and includes e.l.f. lipstick, facial wipes from Acure and simple, Neutrogena Hydro Boost Cleansing Gel, and more. Note, it’s exclusive to Prime members only.
Honestly, beauty sample boxes are the best way to try out new beauty buys, without spending way too much money on something you don’t know if you like.
Most of the people on our team (except Jillian) are converts to this thing, and Shane shared his thoughts about it on Lifehacker Gear:
I’m pretty blown away by the Philips OneBlade. I was expecting a deconstructed electric razor or a souped up Gillette Power-style situation, but the OneBlade is more like the next evolution of beard trimmers.
The OneBlade can be used to get a close shave, edge, or trim down to your preferred length. It’s also washable and rechargeable, and the replaceable blades that last an estimated four months are already available on Subscribe and Save.
The OneBlade can be used in the shower or over the sink, with or without shaving cream or oil. To be clear, this is not going to give you a straight razor-close shave, but it’s going to get you 99.5% of the way there in no time and with no irritation.
The OneBlade has sold for $35 almost exclusively since launch, so $4 qualifies as a solid discount. I paid full price a couple months ago, and have zero regrets.
Note: If the Frustration Free packaging option sells out, try the standard packaging, which is currently listed at the same price.
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. Today’s the third day of the sale, so what are you waiting for?
Look, I’m not saying you should be giving yourself a haircut. I’m merely suggesting that with this $40 Wahl kit, you could. That price is one of the lowest ever listed, by the way.
Amazon sample boxes are one of the only good things to come out of 2016, and they’re back at it again with a $10 box full of men’s grooming gear, plus a $10 credit to spend on over 130 select men’s grooming products on your next order. Assuming you use the credit, that basically means you got eight or more name-brand products for free.
Top Media Deals
If it won’t bother you too much to see James Bond as an overt racist, several of Ian Fleming’s original novels are on sale for just $7 each in Paperback today.
It’s about time to start thinking about what books you’ll be reading on the beach, and Amazon can help. The sale on “summertime reading” material means $3-$5 Kindle books on everything from self-help to baseball memoirs.
Top Gaming Deals
The GoSports Backyard Bocce Set is perfect for getting in fights with friends over resin balls and inches. And at $40, it’s just enough for you to get angry if someone gets mad and rolls a pallino into the pool.
Xbox Live Gold is basically a requisite add-on for your Xbox One, but don’t get suckered into paying the full $60. While supplies last, here’s an entire year for $44.
