Amazon makes sound bars now, because of course they do, and their 2.1 channel, 31.5" model is down to an all-time low $80 right now, from its usual $95. This bar’s integrated subwoofer won’t give you the kind of bass you’d expect from a dedicated subwoofer that sits on the floor, but it’s better than nothing, and makes this system ideal for a bedroom TV where space is a concern.
Elago might be most famous for their Macintosh-themed Apple Watch charging stand, but they make a ton of other Apple accessories too, and dozens of them are on sale in today’s Amazon Gold Box. Find everything from headphone splitters to AirPod ear hooks to iPhone cases to, yes, that Apple Watch charging stand. Just note that these prices are only available today, or until sold out.
This glowing orb can rest on a table or hang from the ceiling, display a bunch of different colors, and run for up to five hours on a charge at maximum brightness. For $20, why not?
Need a lot of extra storage for your Nintendo Switch or action cam? The advent of 200GB+ cards means that 128GB cards, which until relatively recently sold in the $60-$80 range, are finally inching towards affordability. $30 is the best price we’ve ever seen, and a match for what we expect to see on Black Friday.
Your laptop is one of the most expensive things you own, and it deserves to be treated as such. Rather than throwing it roughshod into your bag, slip it into one of PicasoLabs’ beautiful, hand-stitched leather sleeves, now on sale for the first time ever.
There are several options available, and prices will vary depending on the size of your laptop. They’re all designed specifically for various MacBook models, but compare measurements, and you could probably find one to fit your Windows Ultrabook as well. No matter which one you choose, you’ll save 15% at checkout with that promo code. Needless to say, these also make a great gift.
Ring’s video doorbell lets you see who’s at the front door, even if you’re halfway across the world, and you can outfit your porch with one for an all-time low $100. That’s down from its usual $180, and a match for early Black Friday ads that we’ve seen. Every Ring doorbell can be powered via its internal battery, or wired directly to your home, so you don’t have to choose.
If you’re still paying your cable company a monthly modem rental fee, stop what you’re doing and buy your own for just $42. This model supports maximum download speeds of 680mbps, which should cover just about every cable internet plan out there. Just be sure to clip the $10 coupon to save.
Sometimes, I’m still amazed that you can get a 55" TV for $400, let alone one with 4K resolution, HDR10 support (not Dolby Vision at this price, sorry), built-in Roku software, and the ability to use your phone as a remote. This has gotten down to this price a few times in the past, but it usually sells out quickly and goes back to $450.
Brother is our readers’ favorite printer brand and it’s easy to see why: they basically never jam, the toner is relatively cheap, and it prints fast (up to 32 pages per minute). The one trade off is that they don’t print in color, which when I think back to the last couple of things I’ve printed, it’s been a bunch of boring forms, so I don’t think it would be too hard of a pill to swallow.
Plus, this refurbished EHLL2360DW includes the ability to print from your mobile device. At $60, it’s at the cheapest price we’ve seen for this model and might sell out, so what are you waiting for?
If you’re intrigued by the idea of Philips Hue smart lighting, but don’t particularly care about dramatic, colorful light shows in your living room, the Hue White starter kit is exactly what you need, and it’s $40 off today.
The kit comes with four bulbs and a Hue Bridge to control them (plus up to 46 other Hue products, so you can add more as time goes on). The lhese bulbs don’t change colors, or even color temperatures, but you can turn them on or off, and dim them from your phone or with a voice assistant. You probably already have at least an Echo Dot lying around by now, and smart lighting is one of the things it does best.
This kit legitimately usually sells for $100, and the Bridge by itself typically costs about $50, so this is a hell of a deal.
Anker’s PowerLine Lightning cables have been reader favorites for years, and while they’ve since been followed up with PowerLine+ and PowerLine II sequels, they’re still fantastic cables that will last you a long time, and feel great in the process. For a limited time, get one in white for just $6 with code ANKER811, or less than 1/3 of what Apple charges for their own, inferior cable.
Own USB-C devices? Get two nylon-braided USB-C to USB-A cables for $10 with code ANKER826
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!

Shopping for pillows can be a snoozefest, but pillows are something that should be replaced every once in a while. If you can’t remember the last time you bought some new ones, Amazon has got you covered today.
At $22 for a 2-pack with promo code PRHMTDEZ, they’re a good deal for hypoallergenic, breathable pillows that have the right amount of stuffing for everyone from stomach to side sleepers.
If you don’t own a pressure cooker, today’s a great day to fix that. The newest,
pint-sized 3Qt Instant Pot Mini wants a permanent home on your kitchen counter, and it just got its biggest ever discount down to just $52.
Perfectly sized for any apartment, this is also our readers’ favorite slow cooker, and one of their favorite rice cookers too. To put a fine point on it: It’s one of the most versatile kitchen gadgets you can own. Even if you already have one, I don’t need to tell you that these make great gifts, and the holidays are just around the corner.
If you need something bigger though, the regular 6 qt. model just dropped to $75, which is actually $5 cheaper than we’ve seen in early Black Friday ads.
Update: The Bluetooth enabled Instant Pot Smart is also down to an all-time low $120.
Just because the temperature’s dropping doesn’t mean you have to abandon your patio. For one day only, Amazon’s discounting a bunch of fire pits and patio heaters to fit every decor style and budget. Just don’t get burned by waiting too long.
Everyone and their mother should own a small fire-proof safe to protect important documents and valuables in an emergency, and the popular SentrySafe 500 is down to $20 on Amazon today. That’s about $8-$14 less than usual, and within a few cents of the best price Amazon’s ever listed.
Amazon’s developing and selling their own cleaning products under the Presto! name now, and Prime members can save a bundle on laundry detergent and dish soap, today only. We’re talking over 100 loads of laundry for $12, laundry detergent packs for just $.16 each, and more great savings.
With just a few pumps, the Misto olive oil sprayer can turn your favorite olive oil (or any other cooking oil, for that matter), into an aerosol, making it easy to give salads and meats a quick spritz, or to grease a pan if you run out of cooking spray. I own one of these, and use it all the time.
The compact Ninja Master Prep Professional is one of the more versatile kitchen gadgets you can own, and its back down to $40 today on Amazon, within $1 of an all-time low.
Want to mix up a frozen smoothie? Chop some onions? Puree a few tomatoes? The Ninja is designed for all of that, and includes three different-sized jars and blade sets to handle your disparate kitchen duties. You can’t say that about most blenders.
Babysitting the grill or oven while dinner cooks is nobody’s idea of a good time, but this wireless temperature probe will alert you the moment your food has reached the desired temperature.
That means no more dried out, overcooked meat, and more importantly, no awkwardly taking back your guests’ plates to finish cooking that pink chicken. This $30 set comes with two probes (one to stick into your food, and one to measure the air temperature in your grill or oven) and a 300’ range, which should cover just about any cooking scenario you might encounter. Just be sure to get yours before the deal is picked clean.
If you’re still using the bargain basement nonstick pans you bought in college, it’s time for an upgrade. This 7-piece set has everything you need fo 90+% of food preparation, and with today’s $68 deal, it’s only $17 per piece, not including lids.
All of the pans have an aluminum core in their base to ensure fast and even heating, and though that core doesn’t extend up the sidewalls like you’d see on more expensive pans, you’ll still see a big difference here if you’re used to non-ply pans.
For starters, the $44 Luminoodle Task USB is 2' long, flexible, magnetic, weatherproof, and puts out 1000 lumens, which is shocking for a USB-powered device.
For $119, you can upgrade to the full-sized Luminoodle Task, which is over twice as long and over three times as bright, but you’ll have to plug it into an AC outlet.
And for the most flexibility of all, $169 gets you a preorder of the Task Link, which is an AC-powered set of three lights that are that you link together to light up an entire room.
All three models are flexible like giant fettuccine noodles, and can stand up to rain, mount to different surfaces in multiple ways, and are controlled by an included remote. Earlybirds are already going fast though, so don’t let the lights go out on these prices.
It might not seem like mission-critical equipment, but there are times when owning a label maker can really come in handy, and you can buy a really good one right now for just $15.
Unlike many cheap label makers, DYMO’s LabelManager 280 can print graphics and barcodes, and also features a rechargeable battery so you don’t have to hunt down any AAs. I have a similar model in my drawer, and while I don’t use it every day, it definitely earns its keep every few months or so. Today’s deal is an all-time low, so grab it while you can, and get labeling.
If you love the idea of magnetic smartphone car mounts, but don’t want to block a precious air vent, this Anker mount uses 3M adhesive to stick to your dash, and the magnet can swivel to any angle you need. This would make a great stocking stuffer, and you can get it for $10 with promo code SELL7149.

If your workout wardrobe could use a few new additions, today’s Reebok sale on Amazon has you covered. There’s a little bit of everything in here (except shoes, weirdly enough) for both men and women, including a lot of cold weather gear so you don’t get too lazy as the temperatures drop. These prices are only available today though, and the best stuff could sell out early.
Uniqlo.com’s 5-year anniversary sale is on, with hundreds of discounts on various items (including lots of coats and other winter gear), plus free shipping on ALL orders, no minimum purchase required. Even if you’re just buying a single pair of socks or underwear, you should take advantage of that.
Let’s face it, you’re never going to remember to floss regularly. But you just might use the Philips Sonicare AirFloss, which is down to $40 today after you clip the $10 coupon on the product page.
Nose hair is a problem a lot of people have but, for some reason, few people take care of. For a limited time, score this Panasonic nose hair trimmer for just $10, and you can be one of those people doing something about it. Harambe didn’t die so you could look like The Missing Link.
Osprey makes some of the best hiking backpacks out there, and this discounted one would make a great gift for the outdoorsman in your life. $38 is an all-time low, and a substantial discount from its usual $50-$65.
“No-iron shirts” have been around for so long that it seems almost ridiculous to buy anything else. Twillory takes that notion one step further by taking that no-iron notion and adding a bespoke feel.
Their holiday deals aren’t officially live yet, but they’re giving our readers early access with the following codes:
- Two shirts for $89 with code SAVE2 (~$45 per shirt)
- Four shirts for $169 with code SAVE4 (~$42 per shirt)
- Five shirts for $199 with code SAVE5 (~$40 per shirt)
Those codes should work with all the shirts they sell, so mix, match, and get creative. Shane reviewed these shirts over on Gear, so head over there to learn about what makes them so great.
Joe’s New Balance is the premiere online outlet for...New Balance shoes, obviously. Right now, they’re giving you a deal you won’t want to miss. Grab a pair of men’s or women’s 501 Textile casual sneakers for just $35 using the code KINJA501, including shipping. Plus, they have a ton of other footwear and apparel markdowns across the site. Your workout wardrobe will appreciate it.
Another huge sale from Timbuk2 brings a ton of their excellent bags down to hard-to-resist levels. All custom bags (if you didn’t know you could get a custom bag, now you do) are 30% off. Just start with your base bag, whether it’s their Folsom Laptop Backpack, or the ever-popular Classic Messenger Bag. Then hit the customize button and go to town.
Yes, it’s already happening 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 in clearance an extra 25% off. This lasts through Sunday, so you have a good amount of time to pick up some discounts.

I maintain that the humble slow cooker is one of mankind’s greatest inventions, and you can get the most out of yours with this $3 Kindle cookbook, which features 1400 recipes.
Hugo and Nebula award-winner The Forever War remains timeless, and you can get a Kindle copy for just $1 today. If you’ve never read it, I really can’t recommend it highly enough, especially if you want to feel like garbage for a few days.
A lot of io9's readers preordered this Die Hard illustrated Christmas book, but if you missed out on the big preorder discounts, it just dropped back down to $10, so now you’re welcome to the party, pal.
Top Gaming Deals
The G.SKILL Ripjaws KM780R has pretty much every feature imaginable in a gaming keyboard: Cherry MX Red key switches, full RGB backlighting, dedicated macro keys and multiple profile support, and even the ability to sync the backlighting with the backlighting on your compatible motherboard.
It rarely dips below $100 on Amazon, but for one day only, you can get it for $97 with promo code 30OFFKM780R.
Razer’s Panthera PS4 arcade stick was stuck at its $200 MSRP for about 9 months after release, but now you can get it for an all-time low $172.
If you’re lucky enough to own a Nintendo Switch, you’d better take good care of it. This $8 carrying case has a hard shell, a soft interior, a pocket for accessories, and storage for 10 games.
If you’ve ever stayed up way too late tinkering with virtual cities or perfecting a virtual business’s supply lines, the latest Humble Bundle is for you. This week, you can score up to seven strategy simulation games for as little as $10, including hits like OOTP Baseball, Plague Inc. Evolved, and even Cities Skylines Deluxe. As always, you can pay whatever you want, but certain titles are locked behind higher price tiers.
