Top Tech Deals
If you still haven’t upgraded your home network to 802.11ac, or if you just want to fill in a few dead zones in the corners of your home, Amazon’s running a huge sale today on routers, range extenders and more from TP-Link.
Inside, you’ll find routers starting at $45, modems, range extenders, smart switches, ethernet hubs, and more, most of which are marked down to all-time low prices. Hell, this already-affordable range extender even has an extra $5 coupon you can clip. Just note that like all Gold Box deals, these prices are only available today, or until sold out.
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!
If you already use a magnetic smartphone car mount, you can put that plate behind your phone to use at your desk with Bestek’s gorgeous stand. Normally $10-$12, you can get it for just $8 with promo code MGYRKCFS today. I have this sitting on my desk right now, and absolutely love it.
If most Bluetooth earbuds are too large or heavy to stay comfortably in your ears, iClever’s newest headphones are worth a look. The earbuds themselves weigh less than half an ounce each, and having tried them myself, they’re just as light and comfortable as any wired headphones I’ve ever used. Get a pair for just $20 today with promo code KINJAB19.
We’ve seen wireless number pads before, but this is the only one to my knowledge that uses mechanical key switches. And the ultra-clicky blue ones at that! Now you can pretend to be a badass hacker while you loudly pound numbers and formulas into spreadsheets at work.
If you’ve been curious to try computer glasses, but were scared off by the sky-high price of Gunnars, Velocifire will sell you a set for $13 today with promo code VG1KINJA. If you aren’t familiar, the appeal of these things is that they block out the blue light that emanates from the screens we stare at all day, which can cause eyestrain, headaches, and even insomnia.
Extra-long charging cables are perfect for running behind your couch or stretching to your nightstand from an inconvenient power outlet, and this reader-favorite Anker PowerLine cable is about $3 off its usual price today.
If you’ve tried an unamplified HDTV antenna (like the standard Mohu Leaf), but can’t quite pull in every channel you want, this leaf-style model includes a USB-powered amp that should add a few miles of range. Promo code IIJU86E9 brings it down to just $17, which is one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on an amplified antenna.
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 TENSUN05. It also comes with a detachable USB adapter (with standard US prongs) that can be used as a standalone charger as well.
Half of your electronics charge over USB these days, so it makes sense to buy power strips that include both AC outlets and USB ports. For just $16, this Aukey power strip includes four of each.
You don’t need to sell a kidney to afford noise-cancelling Bluetooth headphones; these 4 star-rated Cowin E-7s are just $39 right now, or $31 off with promo code 4BW672VA.
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.
Top Home Deals
Tools are a pretty cliché Father’s Day gift, but if your dad could use some new wrenches or screwdrivers, or if you have a DIY project of your own on the horizon, Amazon’s discounting a handful of tool sets from Wera, today only.
My parents bought a Traeger grill a couple years ago, and holy crap it’s cool. You pour wood pellets (there a ton of different kinds) into the container on the left side of the grill, select the temperature you want, and the grill feeds the pellets into a heating element at whatever speed is necessary to maintain that exact temperature. The result is smokey deliciousness with the ease of using an oven.
The Junior Elite model gives you 300 square inches of cooking space, and $387 is a match for the best price Amazon’s ever listed. Just remember to invite me over the first time you use it to smoke a brisket.
A sharp knife is the single most important tool you can have in your kitchen. Not only are good knives much more enjoyable to use, they’re somewhat counterintuitively safer, since they’re less likely to slip. Mac Knife’s Professional Hollow Edge Chef’s Knife is about as sharp as they come, and boasts a Sweethome recommendation to prove it.
The blade rarely dips below its usual $145, but a third party seller on Amazon just sliced $25 off that going rate, so hurry over (but don’t run, because knives) to place your order before it sells out.
Detergent pods are the easiest way to do the laundry, and with Amazon’s $3 coupon, they’re also some of the cheapest. The coupon applies to tons of different pod varieties from Tide and Gain, but just remember that you won’t see the discount until checkout.
I don’t know that I’d spend the listed $148 on this Langria office chair, but it’s definitely worth considering for just $70 (with code ACQVZCQF). The mesh back allows airflow to help you avoid dreaded back sweat, and while it can’t freely rock back and forth at this price, you can choose from three different angles to maximize your comfort.
These days, you probably charge as many things over USB as you do over standard AC outlets, so it only makes sense to add some semi-permanent USB ports to your home.
Today on Amazon, you can get highly-rated duplex receptacles with a pair of USB ports for $16 each with promo code RLFQ6HCT. That’s one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on one of these things, and in fact, it’s the best price we’ve seen on a model with 4.8A of power shared between the two USB ports. These have proven very popular with readers in the past, even at higher prices, so be sure to secure a few before Amazon sells out.
Pressing isn’t always the best way to prepare garlic, but it’s certainly the fastest, and it extracts far more flavor (for better or worse) than simple mincing. If you like to cook, a garlic press should definitely be in your toolkit for $10.
Rachio’s smart irrigation controllers get all the hype, but if they’re too expensive for your taste, Orbit’s six-zone smart controller is on sale for just $81 today. The Orbit integrates with your existing home irrigation system, but adds the ability to control and schedule your sprinklers via a smartphone app, or even with Alexa.
This riser arrives fully assembled, and just sits on top of your existing desk. Put your monitor(s) on the top shelf, your keyboard and mouse on the bottom, and use its integrated spring system to raise the entire setup from a sitting to standing position within seconds. I own a very similar product from Varidesk (which was much more expensive, by the way), and I absolutely love it.
I saw Dude Wipes for the first time on Shark Tank, and aside from the pandering name, they do seem like they’re pretty great. Today on Amazon, you can get two 30-packs of individually-wrapped wipes for $11, or about $4 less than usual.
That’s still pretty expensive (not to mention wasteful) for regular use at home, but they’d be great for traveling or (gasp) taking into a porta potty. Just preparing for the worst here.
It won’t exactly make flying economy “comfortable,” but this $11 travel pillow might at least help you doze off for an hour here or there. Plus, since it’s inflatable, it’ll fit in your carry-on or personal item.
We see deals all the time on copper string lights, but if you prefer the look of “globe” style incandescents, you can get a 25' strand with 25 bulbs for $15 today (with code H8A2IF9O). It’s already warm outside, so string these up on your patio and enjoy the outdoors.
Why on Earth would you store your knives in a block or a drawer when magnetic strips exist? They keep your knives from rattling around and getting damaged, they look really damn cool, and you can get one for $13 with code 8U5OXWRQ.
Hamilton Beach’s breakfast burrito maker is a unitasker, no doubt, but it’s an awesome unitasker. You put a tortilla on the bottom to warm up, your egg and other ingredients in the top section, and remove a trap door once it’s all cooked to drop your fillings into the tortilla in one fell swoop. I would use this thing every day and gain a lot of weight.
Here’s a stupid little thing that’ll make your life just a little bit easier. Joseph Joseph’s Double Dish is a clever little invention for eating edamame, olives, pistachios, or any other finger foods that leave behind scraps, and it’s just $11 on Amazon right now.
If you haven’t figured it out yet, you just fill the top bowl with the food of your choice, and drop the remains through one of three chutes into the bottom bowl. At the end of the day, it’s still two dishes to clean up, but it takes up less space on your table, it looks cool, and most importantly, you don’t have to stare at those disgusting olive pits during your meal. Today’s price is an all-time low, so get cracking.
This Suaoki portable jump starter only puts out 300A, meaning you should only buy it if your car’s engine is 2.5L or smaller. But if that’s all you need, $22 is one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on any product like this.
The humble and inexpensive cast iron skillet is one of most important pieces of cooking gear you can own, and Lodge’s highly-rated 10” model is back down to $13 on Amazon. If you don’t own one, you shouldn’t hesitate.
Cooking for one? The 8" model is a few bucks less.
Summer’s just around the corner, and if your home or office is starting to feel a little stuffy, this popular Honeywell desk fan has never been cheaper. I’ve used this exact fan on my nightstand for years, and can confirm that it blows air quite well.
Top Lifestyle Deals
If you’ve been meaning to get your dad some new clothes for Father’s Day but didn’t know where to start, this one-day Amazon sale is the place. There are five pages of things to choose from, with brands like Izod, Dockers, Perry Ellis, Levis, Herschel Supply Co., and more. Maybe you can grab something for yourself while you’re looking, but these prices only last for today.
Nike is in rare form today, with a discount on full-priced styles instead of clearance. Use the code GIVESPORT at checkout and take $20 off any order of $100 or more (of full-priced items). This includes new releases and seldom-discounted styles.
FYI: It’s $20 no matter how much over $100 your order is, which is a bit of a bummer, but you can still grab an awesome pair of $100+ sneakers for $80.
Uniqlo is celebrating their Anniversary Sale with a lot of customer appreciation. There is a lot to look through, for both men and women, so it’s a good thing it lasts for three days. Enjoy $8 women’s bathing suits, or $2 men’s socks. It’s basically a free-for-all with exclusive online deals, in-store promos, and one-day discounts.
Today’s deal of the day is $10 men’s Dry-Ex Polo Shirts and $6 Supima cotton women’s tanks.
The Bouqs is probably the best place to use when sending flowers right now. The bouquets are unique and the blooms are harvested from the side of a freakin’ volcano. And right now, you’ll be able to get double the flowers for free. Just choose the Deluxe size of select rose bouquets, use the code ROSEDAY at check out and get it for the price of the Original size.
Perry Ellis is sailing into the nice weather by clearing out their clearance rack. Save an extra 50% on clearance items automatically. Just add your favorite styles to the cart and see the discount at checkout. Stock up on everything you could need for those summer nights and upcoming BBQ’s.
It’s basically summer, so it’s as good a time as any to stock up on new workout clothes with PUMA’s Friends & Family Sale. Use the code BFF17 and take 30% off all sale styles and select full-price styles (participating styles are marked with Friends & Family Event), plus you’ll grab free shipping as well. It’s time to pounce on this deal.
It’s not going to turn you into the cycling equivalent of a NASCAR pit crew, but this tiny Schwinn tool has everything you need for basic bike repairs on the go, and it’s small enough to fit in your pocket or a seat bag. It’s an Add-On Item on Amazon, but this is the best price they’ve ever listed.
ExOfficio underwear is not only one of your favorite underwear, they’re also a Bestseller. In honor of Father’s Day, they’re taking an additional 20% off men’s styles with the code FDAY20. Plus, that 20% off stacks on top of their up to 60% off sale section as well.
If you’ve had your eyes on a Fitbit (may we recommend the Charge 2?), or wanted to get one for Dad this month, nearly the entire lineup is on sale right now on Amazon, with discounts ranging from $20 to $50.
Top Media Deals
Kubo and the Two Strings has everything a perfect family movie could need: beautiful animation, anthropomorphic animals, and a feisty, young main character that has to save the day. And for $10, it’s something that should be on your Blu-ray shelf.
Amazon always offers a free one-month trial of its Audible audiobook service, but for a limited time, they’re also tossing in an extra free book credit to sweeten the pot. That’s in addition to the book you normally get with the trial, and each credit is valid for any title in the Audible library. The best part? The books you choose are yours to keep, even if you cancel the trial before it renews.
Just note that this deal is only valid for new Audible members only.
Top Gaming Deals
It’s a great day to pick up a new DualShock 4, with every available color marked down to just $39-$40 on Amazon.
Best Buy also has a DualShock 4 plus a PC USB adapter for the same price, but only in black.
Horizon Zero Dawn is an instant classic, and one of the best games you can buy for the PS4, so it’s not surprising that we haven’t seen any big discounts on the game until today. If you own a PS4, you’d be crazy not to buy it at $40.
This Sades gaming headset lacks noise cancellation, surround sound, and other advanced features, but it’s comfortable, well reviewed, and works on basically any console. Not bad for $13.
If you’re in the market for a solid mid-range gaming headset on a budget, the Logitech G430 is down to $35 today, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen. That’s a bargain considering you get a noise-cancelling boom mic and Dolby 7.1 surround sound.
Some people would probably give a kidney to own a Nintendo Switch, so if you’re one of the lucky few that’s actually gotten their hands on one, you’d damn well better take good care of it. For a limited time, get a pair of Anker screen protectors for $6, or $3 less than usual with promo code NO1B7475.
