Top Tech Deals

Anker’s SoundCore blew away the competition to take the title of your favorite affordable Bluetooth speaker, and today, you can pick one up for $27. That’s a couple bucks more than it was on Prime Day, but otherwise one of the best prices we’ve seen.

In addition to solid sound quality and impressive Bluetooth range, the standout feature here is the SoundCore’s 24 hour battery life. I’ve owned one for over a year now, and while I’ll occasionally remember to plug it in when I pass by a spare microUSB cord, it’s never once given me a low battery warning, and I use it a lot.

For $10 more, you can also get the water resistant version of the same speaker. Just be sure to use code PRIMEAN8.


This particular external hard drive requires a power cord, so it’ll have to live on your desk or on top of your game console, but as long as that doesn’t bother you, $90 is the best price we’ve ever seen on a 4TB drive.


There are probably thousands of Apple Watch charging stands out there, but basically every one I’ve seen shares the same problem: They slide all over your nightstand when you try to pull the watch off its magnetic charger.

Aukey seems to have solved that with an ingeniously simple suction cup on the bottom of its new stand. It’s a little thing, but you’ll appreciate it every night, and what’s $6 to someone who spent hundreds of dollars on an Apple Watch?

Note: This doesn’t include any actual charging hardware: Like most Apple Watch charging stands, it’s basically just housing for the included charger.


Before you flee the country and/or go on your next international trip, be sure to pick up this universal plug adapter for $12 with code HMOA8987. It also comes with a detachable USB adapter (with standard US prongs) that can be used as a standalone charger as well.


Google Wifi is one of the highest profile competitors in the nascent mesh router market, and Amazon’s marking down their single Wifi point to just $100, or about $15 less than we normally see it.


TP-Link Archer C9 AC1900 Router, $90 with code 20ARCHERC9

If you still haven’t upgraded to 802.11ac, this highly rated TP-Link Archer C9 router is on sale for $90 at Amazon today with promo code 20ARCHERC9. That’s within $5 of an all-time low, and a great deal for anyone still using last decade’s networking equipment.


Tile is the ultimate device for anyone who can’t stop losing their things, and you can get two for an all-time low $30 right now.

If you aren’t familiar, you just slide this thing into your wallet, keep it in your car, stick it in your luggage...anything you frequently misplace, and the Tile app on your phone can ping them over Bluetooth and cause them to beep until you find what you’re looking for. And if your lost item is outside of your phone’s Bluetooth range, it’ll show up on a map automatically any time another Tile user comes into range.

For context, the best price we’ve ever seen on a single Tile Slim is about $24, so you’re barely paying a premium today to get two of them.


3-Pack USB 3.0 to USB-C Cables, $9 with code MRDC8HON | 5-Pack, $14 with code AIYB3VBT

Until such a time that USB-C ports have completely displaced old-style USB-A ports, you’ll need some of these A-to-C cables to manage the transition. Get three for $9, or five for $14 today from Aukey. Just be sure to note the promo codes below.


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. We posted this when it launched last month, but it’s been sold out or heavily backordered ever since, until today.


Jackery PowerPro, $800 with code TR77JI38

If you want to power devices like TVs and mini-fridges while you’re out at a tailgate, your only real option until recently has been a noisy, gas-guzzling generator. But the proliferation of affordable lithium batteries and solar panels is threatening to change that, as evidenced by the Jackery PowerPro.

This electric “generator” features a 500Wh battery that can recharge a smartphone over 40 times, a laptop 3-6 times, a TV for several hours, and a lot more. If it draws less than 300W, you can plug it in here.

When it comes time to recharge, PowerPro’s included 85W solar panel allows you to refill the battery to full with 7 hours of direct sunlight, which can extend your runtime even longer. It wouldn’t be ideal for weeklong camping trips or extended power outages at home, but it might be just enough power for a tailgate or barbecue, and you can save $200 right now with promo code TR77JI38.


A lockbox doesn’t do a whole lot to deter thieves if they can just grab the entire thing off your shelf, but this compact Master Lock 5900D includes a built-in security cable so you can secure it to something solid.


You don’t need to sell a kidney to afford noise-cancelling Bluetooth headphones; these 4 star-rated Cowin E-7s are just $38 right now, or $32 off with promo code 42YFK63R.

They might not have the brand recognition of Sony or Bose, but these headphones pack in 30 hours of battery life, the ability to use them in wired mode if the battery dies, and yes, active noise cancellation that reviewers say works really well.


Phone Stand, $6 with code 6VGBXP2D

There’s not a whole lot to say here: This phone stand has nearly 4,000 reviews, looks great, and is only $6 today with code 6VGBXP2D. Why wouldn’t you put one on your desk?

Top Home Deals

Not only does this 6-quart Crock-Pot come with a digital timer to program cooking times, it also ships with an adorable 16 ounce heated dipper to serve dips and sauces at the table. $34 would be a great price for the Crock-Pot on its own, so be sure to dip into this deal now.

Or, if you aren’t really into dipping sauces (I’m not judging you, I swear), you can grab the classic 6Q Crock Pot for $29 when you clip the $7 coupon.


Dyson dominated the nominations in our favorite vacuum Co-Op, and you can pick up a Dyson V6 Motorhead from Amazon’s Gold Box for $184. You’d be hard pressed to find any Dyson vacuum for under $200, let alone a battery-powered one, so I’d take advantage of this deal before they’re all cleaned out.


Suaoki 4-in-1 Cree LED Flashlight, $20 with code JICQ4GZO

A rechargeable Cree LED flashlight for $17 would be a pretty good deal under any circumstances, but this one includes a seatbelt cutter, window hammer, and even a 10,400Ah USB battery charger. Plus, it includes IPX6 waterproofing, so you’ll still be able to use it if you drive your car into a lake.


You don’t need to buy a new car to get that fancy, blue-tinted Xenon headlight look. You can add it to your old beater with these Philips CrystalVision bulbs, now 20% off in the size of your choice.

Advertisement

If you aren’t familiar, these are standard halogen bulbs that should work in most cars, but the glass is tinted to put out that bluish, 4000K light that’s the hallmark of Xenon. And yes, they’re just as bright as normal bulbs, and they’re completely street legal. So if you’re ready to make the switch, find the right size for your car (Amazon has a tool to help once you click through to the product page), and you’ll see the discount at checkout automatically.


OxyLED T-02U Plus, $23 with code KINJA2UP

The newest member of OxyLED’s popular T-02 stick-anywhere light family is the T-02U Plus, which features the same footprint at the T-02 Plus, while packing in a remarkable 64 LED bulbs compared to the original’s 36. That makes it perfect for a closet or wardrobe where you get ready in the morning, but it would also work well under your kitchen cabinets. Just be sure to use promo code KINJA2UP to save $5 at checkout.


Casper might be the best mattress for everyone, but not for your houseguests. Put them on this discounted Insta-Bed, marked down to $90 on Amazon today.

That’s more than a lot of air mattresses, but this one includes a built-in pump with silently trickles more air into the mattress overnight, meaning it’ll still be fully inflated when they wake up in the morning. I got one of these a few months ago, and it’s as good as advertised.


Anker’s HomeVac Duo vacuum transforms from handheld to upright, has the impressive runtime you’d expect from the brand that makes your favorite battery packs, a washable HEPA filter, and a great warranty. That’s quite a package for $89, within a few bucks of the best price we’ve seen.

This was Anker’s first foray into cleaning products, and reviewers seem to love it. It’ll run for 24 minutes on a charge at full power, or an hour in eco mode, which should be sufficient for most average-sized homes. The standout feature though is definitely the detachable hand vac, which lets you clean furniture, shelves, and even your car with ease.


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 used it for that exact purpose just last week.


Ain’t no lie, baby Bai, Bai, Bai is 35% off when you buy a 12-pack from Amazon today, in the flavor of your choice. Note: Discount shown at checkout.


Mrs. Meyer’s Kitchen Set, $9 with 20% coupon and Subscribe & Save

Mrs. Meyer’s plant-based soap is normally quite a bit more expensive than the competition, but with this 20% Amazon coupon and Subscribe & Save, it’s priced just right. This set includes dish soap, hand soap, and an all-purpose cleaner, in your choice of three scents: Geranium, Lavender, and Basil.


Tide Smart Pouch 3-Pack, $14 after Subscribe & Save and $4.50 coupon

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. 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 $4.50 coupon on the page and use Amazon Subscribe & Save.


2-Pack Aukey Magnetic Vent Mounts, $8 with code PRIMEAU4

Magnetic smartphone vent mounts are the sleekest and easiest way to prop up your phone in the car, and you can get two mounts from Aukey for $8 today with code PRIMEAU4. Even if you already have one in your own car (a pretty safe bet!), it’s worth tossing an extra into your luggage to use in rental cars whenever you travel. They also work as makeshift phone stands if you use them at your desk, or on an airplane tray table.


Household Essentials Sample Box, $15 with $15 credit

Sample boxes like these, the ones full of things you probably need around your house rather than sample sized beauty products or protein powder (no offense), are great. For $15, you get 15 samples of stuff like paper towels, laundry detergent, hand sanitizer, and more, plus $15 back to spend on buying select household items.


Diatomaceous earth is one of the most effective weapons we have against bugs, and Amazon will sell you a 10 pound bag of the stuff for $18, a rare discount from the usual $22. Despite the unspeakable things it does to bugs in your yard, it’s actually food grade, and completely non-toxic for humans and pets.


If you were living under a rock and missed yesterday’s Instant Pot deals, the LUX60 is down to $72 right now on Amazon, about 10% less than usual. That’s not a huge discount, but these hardly ever go on sale, and they’ll change the way you cook.


Magnetic Wristband, $9 with code JOEEPL3H

Magnetic wristbands are incredibly handy for doing work around the house, and this one’s only $9 with promo code JOEEPL3H today.

Top Lifestyle Deals

I’m a huge fan of practically all things Burt’s Bees, and so are a lot of people. Right now, Amazon is giving you a 20% off coupon for a Hand Repair Gift Set, which includes three of their most popular hand care products, Almond Milk Hand Cream, Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream, and Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream, plus a pair of cotton gloves.


There’s no better time to give Urban Outfitters a second look than when they give you up to 70% off a ton of styles. Everything you could need from apparel to shoes to home goods is on sale. Just add your favorites to your cart and watch the extra discounts at checkout.


You can get $25 sunglasses that are polarized or $25 sunglasses with metal frames, but rarely both, and never in this many different styles.

If you missed out on our exclusive code last week, Prime Day brings 20% off a ton of styles from Privé Revaux. Just add them to your cart to see the discount.

Privé Revaux makes polarized, stylish shades for less than half of what you’d expect, and right now, our readers can take advantage of their best prices ever. Yes, the models are celebrities looking super awkward who probably had nothing better to do, but the sunglasses are actually pretty great looking.


Zappos is basically a one-stop shoe destination already, but right now, they’re having an actual sale, something they haven’t done in years. Grab discounted shoes from Cole Haan, Brooks, Nike, Stuart Weitzman, Frye, and more for men and women. And, if you’re part of their rewards program, get 3x the points on the over 40,000 items on sale.

Top Media Deals

Rent Arrival, $1

I occasionally play tennis with a professor of linguistics, and he told me that Arrival (mostly) did a great job of portraying how one might theoretically go about deciphering an alien language. When’s the last time you saw a movie about your profession that wasn’t rife with errors?

Accuracy aside though, it’s just a really good movie (and critically, one that rewards rewatching), so you can rent it from Amazon for just $1 right now.


Star Trek: Beyond was actually pretty good—well, at least better than Into Darkness—and it’s definitely worth the Blu-ray for $8.

Top Gaming Deals

Pandemic is one of the best cooperative board games you can buy, and $20 is the one of the best prices Amazon’s ever listed. I suggest spending the money you saved on pizza to share with your squad.


PECHAM XL Mouse Pad, $8 with code EFX3JXJL

$8 is cheaper than a lot of standard sized mouse pads, but today, that gets you a massive 2.5' x 1' model that can accommodate your keyboard as well. So luxurious! Just be sure to use promo code EFX3JXJL at checkout to save a couple bucks.


There have been a lot of deals on Catan lately, but $29 is the best price we’ve been for a couple weeks. Bug customer support enough, and they might even sell it to you for two bricks and a wheat.


Xbox Live Gold discounts aren’t as commonplace as they used to be, but if your account is expiring soon, Amazon will toss in a bonus $10 Xbox gift credit (expires at the end of July) when you purchase a three month membership code. Just note that this only works on the digital memberships, not the cards.


If you’ve played Ticket to Ride, the European version is more than just a new map. The addition of tunnels, ferries, and train stations add new layers of strategy that the American edition lacks, making it a worthy addition to your board game cabinet for $30.
