Top Tech Deals

Amazon’s back at it again with another PC gaming-focused Gold Box deal, this time with great deals on monitors, motherboards, routers, and tons of full-on gaming laptops and PCs, including an all-time low price on this maxed out 17" Razer Blade Pro.

If you don’t feel like dropping nearly $4,000 today, there are a lot of other affordable luxuries in here, including the HyperX Cloud II headset for $70 (also compatible with PS4), Corsair’s Strafe mechanical keyboard for the same price, and a 24" gaming monitor with 2ms response for just $100.

Oh yeah, that 49" curved Samsung ultrawide you saw on Cyber Monday? That’s back too.

For the rest of the deals—and there are a lot of them—head over to Amazon.


If you use a desktop computer, a good UPS battery backup will keep it running without any interruption in the event of a power outage, which means you won’t lose any unsaved work. But even if you’re a laptop user, this could still run lamps, your router and modem, or any other low-draw devices until the power comes back on. This particular model even includes some USB ports for charging your mobile devices.


Paying a monthly modem rental fee to your ISP is about as financially prudent as spending a few Bitcoin on lunch in 2014, so if you haven’t already, today’s a great day to buy your own.

This 16x4 DOCSIS 3.0 model from TP-Link supports download speeds up to 680Mbps, which should be plenty fast for nearly every cable-based internet plan. It normally sells for around $70, but you can get it for $55 today.

Some people want their modem to double as a router—It wouldn’t be my choice, but more power to you—and this 24x8 modem will get the job done for most moderately sized houses and apartments. The modem supports download speeds from your ISP of over 1000Mbps, so, yeah, it should be pretty future proof. Today’s deal is about $30 less than usual.


Echo Dot | $30 | Amazon
Echo | $80 | Amazon
Echo Show 2-Pack | $310 | Amazon | Add two to cart to see discount

Just because you missed out on Black Friday and Cyber Monday doesn’t mean you can’t save on an Echo device this holiday season. The Echo and Echo Dot speakers are both on sale for $20 off, and you can also buy two touchscreen-equipped Echo Shows for $310, a $150 savings (discount shown in cart after you add two).

Plus, for every Echo you buy, you can add on a TP-Link Smart Plug for just $5. Just don’t forget to add it to your cart.


If you’re more of a Google loyalist than an Alexa fan, you can still get the Google Home smart speaker for just $79 or a Google Home Mini for $29 for the holidays.


DJI’s Spark is the most exciting new drone of the year, and this is the best deal we’ve seen on it to date, including Black Friday. $399 gets you the drone, an extra battery (worth about $45), and a $75 eBay gift card, while supplies last.

The Spark is roughly the size and weight of those cheap toy drones you see out there, but with significantly better flight time and performance, an automatic follow-me mode, and most crucially of all, a gimbal-stabilized 1080p camera that shoots some seriously great footage.


Key Power Universal Travel Adapter | $10 | Amazon | Promo code KINJA250

Know of anybody that’s planning to travel abroad and/or flee the country in the near future? This $10 international plug adapter is compact, and includes two USB charging ports in addition to a universal AC outlet. Just be sure to use promo code KINJA250 at checkout to get the deal.


Aukey USB-C 46W Charger | $28 | Amazon | Promo code AUSALE12
Aukey 4-Port USB Charger | $12 | Amazon | Promo code AUSALE06

You can never have enough USB chargers, and a couple from Aukey are deeply discounted today.

The more interesting of the two is this 46W USB-C Power Delivery charger for $28. That sits in-between the 29W charger that Apple ships with 12" MacBooks, and the 61W model that comes with the 13" MacBook Pro, but it’s of course far cheaper than both. It also has a standard USB port, so you can charge your phone while your laptop or Nintendo Switch occupies the high power port.

For $12, you can also pick up a four-port charger that’s great for travel. It only packs in 24W of total power, so if you plug something into every port, it’s going to be fairly slow, but it would still be great for overnight gadget charging.


Anker’s SoundBuds have long been reader favorites, and two different options are on sale right now for the holidays.

For just $18 (with code SUPER236), you can grab the SoundBuds Surge lightweight Bluetooth headphones. With magnetic connectors on the earpieces and a water-resistant coating, these would be a great addition to your gym bag.

And if you missed it earlier this week, Anker’s brand new Zolo Liberty truly wireless headphones are still on sale for $80, down from $100. These run for 3.5 hours untethered, but the included battery case packs in an extra 24 hours for recharging on the go.


Half the things you plug in these days probably plug into USB ports, so it only makes sense for power strips to incorporate them. Today on Amazon, you can get an 8-AC outlet/6-USB strip with Quick Charge 3.0 for $29, or a 4-outlet/4-USB model for $16. Just be sure to note the promo codes.


Anker SoundCore | $24 | Amazon

Anker’s reader-favorite SoundCore Bluetooth speaker spawned a whole line of products, but the original model is still great, and it’s never been cheaper than it is right now.

The SoundCore’s headlining feature is its 24 hour battery life, and in my experience, that’s a conservative estimate. It also packs in dual 6W drivers for room-filling sound, and looks pretty great to boot. It’s been mostly selling for $30 lately, but you can get it for a stocking stuffer-friendly $24 today, no code needed.


Anker PowerLine+ Lightning Cable | $13 | Amazon
Anker PowerLine II Lightning Cable | $10 | Amazon | Promo code KINJA843
Anker PowerLine+ USB-C to USB 2.0 Cable 2-Pack | $10 | Amazon | Promo code CMCM5555

A really good Lightning cable is a great stocking stuffer for any iPhone owner, and two of the best are on sale right now.

Your options are a 6' nylon-braided PowerLine+ cable for $13 (no code needed), or a 3' PowerLine II cable for $10 with promo code KINJA843. The braided shell of the PowerLine+ will feel nicer, but the PowerLine II comes with a lifetime warranty, so you can’t go wrong either way. Both are offshoots of Anker’s reader-favorite PowerLine product line, and either one will make Apple’s first party cables feel like cheap toys.

USB-C device owners, there’s a deal here for you too.


1 Year NordVPN, $48 with code VIP70
2 Year Plan, $72 with code 2YSpecial2017
3 Year Plan, $99 with code 3ydeal

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 to get a special two year plan for $79 with code 2YSpecial2017, or this link to get three years for $99 with code 3ydeal. Lifehacker has recommended Nord in some previous guides, but if you have any firsthand experience with the service, sound off in the comments!

Top Home Deals

20% off all $25+ orders | eBay | Use code PHOLIDAY20

For a limited time, Dyson’s eBay outlet is taking an extra 20% off any $25 order (maximum $50 discount) with promo code PHOLIDAY20, including vacuums, fans, and even hair dryers. They sell a lot of new stuff on eBay, but the best deals are on the refurbs. Either way, they’re sold directly by Dyson; this isn’t a sketchy third party situation.

My pick is the refurbished V6 Motorhead for $176. I bought the V6 Animal a months ago, and it makes quick work of all the pet hair on our furniture.

That same PHOLIDAY20 code will work with a number of other (admittedly less exciting) sellers as well, including Klymit, KitchenAid, Worx, and more, so check out the full list on this page.


Update: Now up to $36, which is a decent price historically, but higher than it’s been for the last few weeks.

Victorinox’s Fibrox 8” chef’s knife is one of your favorite chef’s knives period, and by far the best value in the industry. It’s also the knife I’ve used almost every day for almost five years. Amazon has it for $31 right now, which is an absolute steal for the quality you’re getting.

You can also get a four-knife Fibrox set for $104, if you want to upgrade your entire collection.


This extra large heating pad has six temperature settings, comes in two colors, and boasts an impressive 4.3-star rating with almost 3,000 reviews.

It typically sells for $35, so today’s price of $28 is a sizable discount and the lowest price we’ve ever seen.


These assorted Lindt chocolate truffles are all 15% off when you clip the coupon. With white, milk, and dark chocolate inside, it’ll be a crowd-pleasing gift. They even have multi-pack options if you need to order in bulk.

Note: The discount won’t show up until checkout.


Mermaid Tail Blanket | $16 | Amazon

Some may think they’re “Etsy’s answer to a straightjacket,” but you can’t deny these mermaid blankets are trendy. If you or someone on you gift list wants to dive in, you can clip the coupon to get these adult-sized mermaid tail blankets for 15% off, bringing the price to just $16.

It looks like the coupon is only valid for the blue one, so your color options are as limited as your mobility will be while wearing it.


Nespresso Mini | $75 | Amazon

Update: Back in stock, if you hurry!

Nespresso is the easiest way to make solid espresso at home, and their newest brewer is the most space efficient one yet.

The Nespresso Mini still achieves 19 bars of pressure, well above the 15 you really need for decent espresso, and it does it while only taking up a small sliver of counter space. This model (designed by Breville) usually sells for $150, and $75 is easily an all-time low. You could spend a lot of money to buy a 40 pound behemoth that made slightly better coffee, sure, but if Nespresso is good enough for Boris Diaw, it’s probably good enough for you.


OXA 4-In-1 Hand Blender | $30 | Use code O87XJ67S

If you’ve ever thought about pulling out your blender to make a smoothie, sauce, or dip, and then held off because you didn’t want to clean 12,537 different parts, this deal is for you. A highly rated OXA hand blender is $10 off, and comes with a variety of attachments.

Advertisement

The big advantage here is that unlike a traditional blender, you can dip a hand blender into whatever container you were already using to hold your ingredients; be it a single-serve cup or a huge mixing bowl. That saves you time, and means fewer dishes to clean up once you’re done. This one though also comes with a whisk attachment, and even a food processor bowl that plugs right into the end of the blender, and includes its own set of food chopping blades.


TaoTronics Whiskey Stones Reusable Chilling Stones | $10 | Amazon | Use code KINJAW2E

Give the gift of non-watered down whiskey with these discounted stainless steel reusable ice cubes.

Advertisement

Normally $15, you can take these home for just $10 with code KINJAW2E. This set comes with tongs and a tray, and they make great stocking stuffers. Cheers!


iOttie One Touch 2 | $12 | Amazon

Update: This jumped to $20 earlier today, but now it’s down to just $8!

While suction cup-based smartphone car mounts have been largely supplanted by magnetic solutions, the iOttie One Touch 2 is a fantastic option for anyone who doesn’t want to block a vent or use a case with their phone. If that sounds like you, speed over to Amazon to get it for $12, an all-time low.


$50 Lyft Gift Card | $45 | Amazon | Promo code LYFT5

We’ve seen some deals in the past on Uber gift cards, but if you prefer to spend your money with the somewhat-less-evil Lyft, you can score a $50 card for just $45 right now from Amazon with promo code LYFT5. Even if you don’t use it yourself, this would make a nice gift.


Thousands of our readers have bought Dremels over the years, but if you need some new accessories to tackle a specific job, or if the sanding attachments that yours came with are starting to wear down, these official Dremel accessory kits are all on sale today.


$20 Cash Back/2,000 Points with $20 purchase at eBags.com with Chase Pay and Chase Freedom/Freedom Unlimited/Sapphire Preferred Card. Details here.

Similar to the special Walmart and Best Buy Chase Pay promotions we shared a few weeks ago, you can now get 2,000 Chase points (worth $20 in cash back at a bare minimum) when you spend $20 at eBags and use Chase Pay to check out. Terms and conditions here and here.

At a base level, if you find something for around $20—like this TRTL travel pillow, or these packing cubes—and use this promotion, you’ll almost be getting your purchase for free.

Update: Get FREE ShopRunner shipping for two years through this link.

But if you have either a Sapphire Preferred or Sapphire Reserve card, the points you earn from this promotion can be used for travel rather than cash back, meaning they could be worth a lot more than $20. For example the Sapphire Reserve allows you to book travel directly at a rate of 1.5 cents per point, making this promotion worth a minimum of $30 in travel. And if you find a really good partner redemption (like I did for my trip to Hawaii), it could be worth a lot more.

Just be sure to hit the Chase Pay button at checkout, and use either a Chase Freedom, a Freedom Unlimited, or a Sapphire Preferred card to pay. It doesn’t appear that the Sapphire Reserve is eligible, though once you get the points, you can transfer them into your Reserve account for travel redemption purposes.



RTIC’s top-selling 30 ounce vacuum insulated tumbler just got a design refresh, and the new model is down to an all-time low $8 on Amazon right now. I don’t think I’ve ever met someone who didn’t love these things, so it’d make a great little gift.

RTIC also makes our readers’ favorite coolers, and all three sizes are on sale for about $18-$25 less than usual, in a variety of new colorways. I have the 20-can model, and yes, it really does keep ice frozen for days on end.


Tacklife HD40 Laser Measure | $25 | Amazon | After 15% coupon

Only luddites use tape measures anymore. This laser distance measurer takes instant distance readings of up to 131', and includes several built-in area calculation functions, in case you’re a little rusty on your middle school geometry.


Fleximounts 4'x8' Garage Storage Rack | $148 | Amazon | Promo code XMASHOME

Why pile boxes up on the floor of your garage when you can pile them up on the ceiling? This 4' x 8' Fleximounts overhead storage system can hold all of your holiday decorations once it’s time to put them away, plus a lot of other stuff too. Its height is even adjustable from 22" to 40", so you can optimize it for storage space or headroom, depending on your needs. Just be sure to use promo code XMASHOME at checkout to get it for $148.


DBPOWER 12V Tire Inflator | $22 | Amazon | Use code 975WIE8H

Forget trying to find quarters under your car seat and paying way too much for 3 minutes of air, and get this $22 tire inflator with code 975WIE8H. You can fill up your tires whenever and wherever you please for free. Keeping your tires properly inflated helps improve gas mileage so this guy will basically pay for itself. It also works on bike tires.



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 $15 today on Amazon. We’ve seen better prices in the past, but this set has been selling for around $20-$24 pretty consistently this year, so you’re saving between $5 and $9. Not too shabby.


If you need a little extra help getting your house together for holiday guests, let Amazon pitch in for $30 less today.

For cleaning services, you simply select the size of your home. For handyman services, you estimate how many hours you’ll need them and note whether they’ll be inside or outside. Examples of applicable handyman jobs might be installing a garbage disposal, mounting a TV, or drywall repair. For both services, you’ll see the $30 discount at checkout.

Unfortunately, Amazon isn’t set up with providers everywhere in the country, but if you live in a covered area, this is as great deal.

Just note that you’ll have to complete the checkout process with the local provider by 12/21, and you’ll have to schedule service within 90 days.


Eufy Lumi 3-Pack Motion-Sensing Night Lights | $11 | Amazon | Promo code NIGHT999

Anker makes night lights, and they don’t even have to be plugged into a wall. You just stick them anywhere, they turn on when it’s dark enough and they detect motion, and you can get three of them for $11 today with promo code NIGHT999.

Just note that they run for up to a year on three AAA batteries each (not included), so you’ll want to pick up some rechargeables.


Every year around the holidays, Amazon offers a limited edition teddy bear when you order gift cards of certain denominations, and it never lasts long. 2017's bear just went live on gift cards ranging from $100-$500, so lock in your order before they’re all adopted.

Note: This is exclusive to Amazon Prime members.


Dash Egg Cooker, Black | $16 | Amazon

Update: This deal is back if you missed it over Black Friday.

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 $16. The Dash is Amazon’s top-selling egg cooker, and carries a stellar 4.5 star review average from nearly 4,500 customers, so get it while it’s on sale today!


Mynt Essential Oil Diffuser | $13 | Amazon | Use code MYNT3173

Update: This is featured as a lightning deal right now for $13, but if you miss that, the promo code (MYNT3173) should bring it down to the same price.

Advertisement

I was in the camp of people who felt like aromatherapy diffusers were glorified Glade plug-ins. And they are to some extent, but the fact you can use natural essential oils to create the scent, rather than whatever Glade uses, is a real game changer. The peppermint and eucalyptus scents can help with migraines and sinus headaches as well help humidify the air during drier winter months.

This diffuser is just $13 (with code MYNT3173), has two different aromatherapy settings (intermittent and continuous mist), and doubles as an LED light with seven color options. Throw in this 8 pack of essential oils and you’re all set.
