Top Deals

Today only, Amazon’s offering big discounts on Lenovo Flex 3 notebooks, and you get to pick your screen size.

Both options here cost $430, and both include 4GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD, and a 2.3Ghz Core i5 processor. Those specs aren’t exactly incredible, but they’re certainly better than your average Chromebook, so this could be a fine option if Chrome OS doesn’t check all of your boxes.

You do get to choose between a 15.6" or 14" touchscreen display, though both share a 1366x768 resolution. They also rotate a full 360 degrees, meaning you can use this as a tablet, or in a “tent” mode to watch movies.

Amazon offers these Lenovo Gold Boxes from time to time, and they almost always sell out before lunch, so lock in your order while you can.



Vansky White Bias Light, $14 with code L42XO3AB | Vansky RGB Bias Light, $17 with code L42XO3AB

For a few years now, Antec’s USB-powered HDTV bias light has been one of our most reliably popular deals whenever it went on sale. The problem: It only got a significant discount once every few months. Luckily, a copycat has emerged to fill in the gap.

Just like the Antec model, these Vansky LED light strips plug directly into your TV’s USB port for power, and sticks to the back of the set via built-in adhesive. Once you turn your TV on, the light strip will cast a soft glow on the wall behind it, which can reduce eyestrain when watching in the dark, and improve your TV’s perceived black levels.

We’ve posted deals on these several times now, but today’s $17 and $14 price points are all-time lows.


Southwest had a pretty epic meltdown last week, but if that won’t scare you away from flying with them in the future, this discounted gift card is basically free money.

Pro tip: Use the money you saved to buy Earlybird check in.


2-Pack Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen, $10 with Subscribe & Save and 10% coupon

Neutrogena’s Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch sunscreen was your favorite sunscreen, by a large margin. Right now, clip this coupon on Amazon and get this 2-pack for only $10. You have to subscribe to the Subscribe & Save delivery, but you can always cancel after the first delivery.


FREE Prime Pantry shipping with purchase of five eligible items and promo code PANTRYJUL

Amazon’s free Prime Pantry shipping promotion seems to be a permanent fixture at this point, but each month brings a new slate of eligible items, and you only have a few days left to take advantage of July’s.

Note: This seems to be a monthly promotion at this point, but the eligible items change each month, so you only have a few days left to take advantage of the July promo.

As always, just add five of the items on this page to your Prime Pantry box, enter code PANTRYJUL at checkout, and the $6 shipping charge will be waived. Plus, if you happen to have a free Pantry shipping credit from accepting no rush shipping on a previous Amazon order, it should stack, granting you an additional $6 discount.

There are literally hundreds of products available for the promotion, so you should have no trouble finding five that you need.


If you own a PS4, Uncharted 4 is basically a must-own title, and Amazon’s marked it down to an all-time low $40 today.


Amazon’s currently taking an extra 15% off when you subscribe to various Frito Lay products, including Stacy’s pita chips, Doritos, Smartfood popcorn, and more. Head over here to see the full list, and order your favorites before there are only crumbs left.

Note: You won’t see the discount until checkout, and you’ll need to use Subscribe & Save. You can always cancel after your first delivery though.


Love it or hate it, Wayfair seems to be here to stay (and will continue to burden us with that stupid song from their commercial getting stuck in your head). So, if you’re still looking for something to make your apartment feel a little more like a real apartment, there’s bound to be something for you that’s 70% off.


GAP has stepped up its game when it comes to basics and denim. It’s super easy to find at least something you’ve been meaning to get (ahem, those jeans you probably should’ve replaced last year). With 35% off regular-priced items and an extra 50% off sale items with the code HAPPY, you’ll be glad you gave GAP another chance.



Samsonite 28" S’Cure Spinner, $140 with code TRAVEL10

If you’re sick of broken zippers and torn fabric on your luggage, Samsonite’s S’Cure 28" spinner might be the answer.

Featuring an integrated latch and TSA-approved lock, the S’Cure is basically 100% polycarbonate, meaning there’s no fabric, and no zipper. It sells for $164 on Amazon, with fantastic user reviews, but you can pick one up from BuyDig for an all-time low $140 right now with promo code TRAVEL10.


Reebok’s Professional Deck is actually an adjustable step, workout bench, and storage compartment all rolled into one, and Amazon’s marked it down to an all-time low $150 today. That’s roughly $40-$70 less than usual, but it’s already slightly backordered, so get yours before they’re all swoled out.


There are bigger and better meat smokers out there, but if you’re just curious about the process, this Char-Broil charcoal smoker is a great starter model for just $64. And if you’re the DIY type, there are even some easy modifications you could implement to improve it.


Once you go IPS, you never go back, and this 24" 1080p display from LG is marked down to $100 today on Newegg’s eBay storefront. For comparison’s sake, it’s currently selling for $110 on Amazon, but frequently goes for $140.


The Shark Navigator Lift-Away is your favorite affordable vacuum cleaner, but it’s the step-up Professional model that’s on sale today for $144. Compared to the standard Lift-Away, the Professional includes a longer power cord and a microfiber dusting attachment. Today’s price is within $4 of an all-time low, and a solid discount from its usual $170-$200.

If that’s a bit out of your price range, Amazon’s still selling refurbs of the standard Lift-Away for $90.


Standalone OBDII Scanner, $14 | Bluetooth OBDII Scanner, $9 with code OBD2BLT4 | Wi-Fi OBD2 Scanner, $14 with code WIFIOBD5

Everyone should own an OBDII scanner to diagnose check engine lights without schlepping to the auto parts store, and you’ve got three options to choose form today.

The $9 Goliath Bluetooth scanner (code OBD2BLT4) can connect to Android devices to interface with various OBDII apps, but you’ll need the $14 Wi-Fi model (code WIFIOBD5) if you own an iPhone.

If you don’t want to futz with connecting a dongle to your phone, there’s also a standalone reader available on eBay for $14. I own this exact model, and it gets the job done just fine.


Logitech’s Z333 system is an affordable 80W stereo set that’s perfect for your computer or home theater, and you can pick one up for just $45 today from Groupon, or about $15 less than Amazon.


Aukey’s clearing out Bluetooth selfie sticks for just $4 right now, which is as cheap as we’ve ever seen. Just please, use them responsibly.

Note: As far as I can tell, these two products are identical, so if one sells out, try the other.


For a limited time, Aukey’s offering deals on a pair of water-resistant Bluetooth speakers that you can take to the beach, or even into the shower.

Honestly, the $22 model (with code AUDIO4M8) is your best bet here. It has two drivers instead of one, and much longer battery life than the tire-shaped model, but $15 is an awfully tempting price (with code AUDIO4M4) if your needs are pretty basic.


USB-C is slowly taking over the world, and you can manage the transition with this 6-port, 60W charger for just $15 (with code 4TYXG288). It includes four 2.4A USB ports for your older devices, plus a pair of USB-C ports for newer phones and even laptops.


I think it’s safe to say that much of the country is going through a Pokémon nostalgia trip right now, and you can re-live the original Blue, Red, and Yellow versions on 3DS for just $8 each today (down from $10), courtesy of Best Buy.


Apple TV, $129-$149

The new Apple TV is good, and getting better, and Walmart is taking $20 off the 32GB model, or $40 off the 64GB model. We’ve seen a few better deals in the past, but this is still a solid discount as far as Apple products go.


The new Doom game is...exactly what you’d expect it to be, which is mostly a good thing. If it’s been on your wishlist, Amazon’s already knocked it down to $30 for PC, Xbox One, and PS4.


XCOM 2 [PC], $30

If you were waiting for a good discount to dive back into the world of XCOM, Amazon’s taking $30 off physical PC copies of XCOM 2 today for Prime members, which is the best price we’ve ever seen. Good luck, Commander.


If your car takes synthetic oil, and you like to change it yourself, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better deal than $23 for five quarts of Mobil 1 0W-20 synthetic motor oil, complete with Prime shipping.


The successor to one of the most popular mice ever made is down to a new low price on Amazon, while supplies last.

Note: We posted this last week for $70, which at the time was an all-time low price, but now it’s $2 less.

The Logitech MX Master Mouse comes with all the accoutrements you’d expect form a high end mouse—namely a rechargeable battery, adjustable DPI, and a dark field laser that works on glass—and a few that you wouldn’t, like a side thumb wheel for horizontal navigation and gestures, and the ability to connect over Bluetooth to three devices simultaneously.

$68 is the best price we’ve ever seen, but I wouldn’t expect it to last, so click on over to Amazon to lock in your order.


The Razer Orochi is billed as a “travel” gaming mouse, but if its compact size doesn’t bother you, the specs here look as good as just about any full sized gaming mouse you could buy.

  • 8,200 DPI sensor
  • Bluetooth connectivity, plus the ability to use it while plugged in
  • Seven months of battery life
  • 16.8 million color chroma lighting system
  • Razer Synapse support for full customization

Sound tempting? Today’s $45 deal is an all-time low, and about $15 less than usual.


It would be disingenous to call any 20,000mAh battery pack “small,” but Anker’s PowerCore Edge is at least thin. A mere centimeter thin, in fact.

Other than the unique design, this is the same PowerCore battery you know and love, so if you need some extra juice for your tablet on a long flight, or your phone during Pokémon Go outings, today’s $35 deal is an all-time low.


No, this Honeywell thermostat doesn’t look like a futuristic work of art like the Nest Learning thermostat. But that’s easy to forgive when you realize that it still includes Wi-Fi, meaning you can program and control it from your phone, and costs less than $90.


Vantrue R2 Dash Cam, $100 with code VANTRUE2

Vantrue’s R2 dash cam was The Wirecutter’s runner-up pick, and you can save a whopping $50 on yours today with promo code VANTRUE2, bringing the price down to $100.

The R2 can shoot at resolutions exceeding standard 1080p (2560x1080 or 2304x1296), and its 170 degree field of view means you’ll never miss a license plate, crash, or meteorite. This deal is a match for the best we’ve seen on this model, so grab yours while you still can.


As long as you don’t mind buying a refurb, VIZIO’s SB3851 38" 5.1 surround sound system is on sale for $169 on Amazon right now. I own this exact system, and absolutely love it, as do many of our readers.

The system’s three front audio channels are housed in an attractive 38" sound bar, while the two satellite speakers connect to a Bluetooth subwoofer, meaning you don’t have to run any cables from your TV to the back of the room to enjoy true surround sound (though to be clear, you do have to plug the satellite speakers into the subwoofer). The best part? You don’t even need a receiver to operate this thing; it’ll plug straight into your TV.

There are surely systems out there that sound better or offer more options, but for the majority of non-audiophiles, this system is basically a miracle for the price.


Mpow Petrel Bluetooth Earbuds, $10 with code QUE7TESP

Mpow basically invented the cheap Bluetooth earbud market, but even by their standards, $10 is an amazing price (with code QUE7TESP). Mpow’s Petrels include Bluetooth 4.0, 5.5 hours of battery life, and a sweatproof coating so you can wear them to the gym (or just for a walk outside during the heat dome).


Aukey Bluetooth Car Kit, $19 with code BTCAR888

We’ve seen a lot of deals on Bluetooth car receivers, but I don’t think any of them have looked as nice as this model from Aukey. It even lets you pair two phones at once, and comes with a three-port USB charger to keep all of your devices charged as well. Just note that your car will need an AUX jack for this to work.


Several Miyazaki classics are down to $15 or today on Amazon, which is about as low as they get, with few exceptions. You can’t go wrong with any of them, and really, you should own all of them. Let us know your favorites in the comments!


American Apparel may still have a bad reputation, but there are still some hidden gems in between the lawsuits and spandex. And, a lot of them happen to be on sale right now.


Zookki GoPro Accessory Bundle, $16 with code U6KGKYT8

Your GoPro longs to go everywhere with you, and with this ridiculously-affordable accessory kit, it finally can. It’s also worth noting that these accessories will work with any action cam that uses a GoPro-style mounting system, like the Yi Action Cam.


5 Indochino Made to Measure Shirts, $279, use code KINJA5, free shipping, expires 7/31.

Indochino is your favorite custom clothing company, and this week they’re offering Kinja Deals readers their best shirt pricing ever. $279 gets you five shirts with promo code KINJA5. Read more about the deal here.

Some of our peers have Melania’d the discount we launched with Indochino back in May, so we can’t call it an exclusive anymore. However, it’s still the best pricing they’ve ever offered, so if you missed out last time or want more suits, here’s your chance. Read more here.


Running low on digital storage space, or just want to start keeping better backups? Amazon’s marked the 2TB WD Elements external drive to $70, which is about as low at that capacity ever gets.


If you enjoy eating at Chili’s, Macaroni Grill, Maggiano’s, or On The Border, this discounted Brinker gift card is basically a free entree.


Another huge sale from Timbuk2 brings a ton of their excellent bags down to hard-to-resist levels. Be sure to let us know what you pick up in the comments.

The “midway” colorway of one of your five favorite carry-ons is down to $159.

A few colors of your favorite messenger bag, the Commute/Command lines, are also discounted.
