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 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.


Echo Dot, $40 with code DOTSAVE10 | Echo, $140 with code ECHOSAVE40 - Prime members only.

Update: This deal will only work if you’ve never purchased an Echo device previously on the same account. You’ll also need to either be a Prime member, or have purchased an Alexa-compatible smart home device in the past.

We’ve seen a few discounts lately on Amazon’s uber-popular Echo and Echo Dot smart speakers, but if you missed out, Prime members can score big discounts once again, while supplies last.

Promo code DOTSAVE10 will take $10 off the already-affordable Dot, while ECHOSAVE40 will take a whopping $40 off the full-sized Echo. Just note that these deals are only available for Prime members. Even if you don’t want one for yourself, Father’s Day is just around the corner, and these would make great gifts.

If you’re planning on traveling internationally or fleeing the country any time soon, you won’t want to miss this deal on one of our readers’ favorite international power adapters.

Promo code YXVLF54N saves $18 on Bestek’s popular travel adapter and voltage converter. This complete 3-outlet/4-USB power strip will work with US, EU, UK, and AU outlets, and converts 220V power sources to US-friendly 110V, for any of your electronics that can’t handle both.


Who doesn’t love free money? For a limited time, eBay’s taking 10% off when you spend $100 on select gift cards. You can mix and match different cards from the likes of Uber, Papa John’s, the Nintendo eShop, the PlayStation Store, Groupon, and more. Just load up your cart and pay with PayPal, and you’ll see the discount at checkout.


News flash: 8TB external drives exist, and you can get one for $183 from WD. And for how small it is, it’s insane that it can hold that much.


You’ve probably heard a lot of fuss about mechanical keyboards lately, and if not, you’ve at least heard the clicking coming from a nearby desk. If you’re curious to try one yourself without dropping a bunch of money, VAVA’s new model is cheaper than ever today.

You won’t get brand name Cherry MX key switches at this price, but the switches it does include should closely mimic Cherry MX Blues, which are the loudest, most tactile switches out there; I use them myself. The headlining feature here though is the keyboard’s fully customizable RGB backlighting, the likes of which we rarely see in a keyboard under $100.

The VAVA has sold between $80-$100 since it launched about a month ago, so today’s price is an all-time low.


If you missed out on yesterday’s Anker vertical mouse deal, today we have an even more affordable alternative from Velocifire. $13 gets you an ergonomic design, three different DPI levels, and forward/back buttons.


Aukey 4.8A Car Charger, $7 with code AUKEYCC7

Aukey makes our readers’ favorite car charger, and while this model is a little bit larger than our top seller, it’s just as powerful, and is made of metal. Get it for $7 with promo code AUKEYCC7.


Phone Stand, $6 with code 6VGBXP2D

There’s not a whole lot to say here: This phone stand has over 5,000 reviews, looks great, and is only $6 today with code 6VGBXP2D. Why wouldn’t you put one on your desk?

Top Home Deals

You don’t necessarily need to buy a new mattress to get a better night’s sleep: Sometimes, a mattress pad will do, and a great one is on sale in today’s Amazon Gold Box.

ExceptionalSheets’ plush fitted mattress pad is supposedly the same pad used in many Marriott and Omni hotels, and its 4.3 star review average from over 2,000 customers would seem to back that up. And unlike most mattress pads, these are stuffed with Revoloft synthetic fill, which should feel a lot like down, but without the associated allergies and poking feathers.

Prices range from just $56-$78 today, depending on the size, but just note that this is a Gold Box deal, meaning this price is only available today, so don’t sleep on it.


Whether you’re filling tires or firing pneumatic tools, this 4.5 star-rated Porter-Cable electric pancake compressor has is a great addition to any garage, and Prime members can pick it up for $80 today. That’s about $20-$40 less than usual, and the best price Amazon’s ever listed.


Even if you haven’t been to any of these places, Type Hike designed these prints to be more fantasy than reality anyway. The stylized posters from landmarks like the Yosemite, Acadia, and Denali, are just begging to be framed, so take your pick for just $25 each from Huckberry.


In addition to Amazon’s new premium beverage sample box, parents can also pick up a box with 10 or more children’s snacks for just $5, plus a $5 credit towards your next eligible snack purchase (which isn’t limited to children’s food).


Beverage Sample Box, $10 + $10 beverage credit

Amazon’s back at it again with another great sample box, this time with seven premium beverages for $10, plus a $10 credit on your next eligible beverage purchase on Amazon. If you’ve ever been curious to try Soylent, this is your moment.


Wuudi Wine Decanter, $21 with code MSYUE58M

Here’s a secret about hosting people for dinner: If you put the wine in a fancy looking carafe, it’ll trick them into thinking you spent more than $8 on the bottle.


I know you don’t need an electric jar opener. You possess impressive finger strength and well developed forearm muscles, and no jar could hope to best you. But maybe it could do, say, your parents or grandparents some good, and it’d be a nice gift at $19, today only.


If you’ve ever eaten at a nice steakhouse, you were probably eating sous-vide meat. Here’s a secret though: It’s really easy to get those kinds of results yourself, and Amazon’s here to help with another $109 deal on the Anova Bluetooth sous-vide circulator.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00UKPBXM4/

Lifehacker has a great explainer on Sous-Vide cooking for you to check out, but the basic idea is that you seal the food in plastic bags, and then cook it in precisely heated water over a longer period of time. It sounds weird and kind of sterile, but the result is meat that’s cooked to the exact right temperature all the way through.


Unlike this week’s earlier gadget repair kit deal, this 54-bit screwdriver kit doesn’t include a suction cup or spudgers, so it’s not ideal for smartphones. That said, it includes just about every bit you could ever need for most laptop repairs, and also a detachable snake attachment for use in tight corners.


Dr. Meter IR Thermometer, $12 with code PLFR78PO

You guys buy boatloads of IR thermometers whenever we post a deal, and it’s easy to see why. They’re a ton of fun to mess around with, and can come in handy for everything from cooking to home energy savings.

If you still don’t own one, you can rectify that for just $12 today. This one even comes with a holster!


Anker LC90 Flashlight, $22 with code HGBGOIWV or $30 with FREE LC40 Flashlight with code NWSSMJOF | Anker LC130 Flashlight, $45

Anker, producer of a lot of your favorite charging gear, has its own line of flashlights too, and all three are on sale today for some the best prices we’ve ever seen.

The cheapest model (LC40) is IP65 dust and water resistant, but actually doesn’t include a rechargeable battery. However, you can run it on three AAAs or a single rechargeable 18650 battery, which are cheap and easy to find.

The next step up (LC90) is far brighter (900 lumens vs. 400), and includes a rechargeable battery and a microUSB port, while the most expensive model (LC130) is brighter still at 1300 lumens, and is IP67 rated, meaning you could even use it underwater.

Once you’ve decided which model you want, you have a few different options to save today. First off, the LC130 is $15 off its usual $60, no promo code required. If you’d like the LC90, you can either get if for $22 with promo code HGBGOIWV, or pay the usual $30 for the LC90, and get a FREE LC40 with promo code NWSSMJOF. If you go this route, you’ll need to add both to your cart before entering the code.


Rubbermaid’s fold-up laundry hamper is actually Amazon’s top seller in the category, and it’s on sale today for just $12. You’ve probably accidentally washed more money than that in your jeans pockets this year.


Mpow LED Spotlight, $11 with code LNYZW7EC | 2-Pack LED Spotlights, $20 with code SBOPUG93 | 4-Pack LED Spotlights, $36 with code Q5MD8PW2

Without any wiring to futz with, Mpow’s solar-powered, motion-sensing spotlights are the easiest way to illuminate your front porch or lawn, and you can save big on one, two, or four today. All of the promo codes are below, just note that the more lights you buy, the more you’ll save.


Aicok electric kettle, $34 with code 33CHG7FY

Electric kettles are the fastest and most efficient way to boil water, and this model from Aicok even includes six different temperature settings for different types of beverages.


If your old beater of a car doesn’t have Bluetooth built-in, this Anker SoundSync will add wireless audio streaming and handsfree calls to any car with an AUX jack for just $17, or about $3 less than usual. That’s a lot cheaper than buying a whole new stereo, let alone a new car.


TP-Link Smart Plug, $21. Discount shown at checkout.

Like the idea of a Belkin WeMo Switch, but not willing to spend $40-$50 to try one out? This TP-Link alternative has a nearly identical feature set for half the price.

Just like a WeMo switch, TP-Link’s Smart Plug will let you turn appliances on and off from your smartphone, and set schedules to toggle them automatically. The only major feature it’s lacking is IFTTT support, but it will integrate with an Amazon Alexa for voice control. Just note that you won’t see this discount until checkout.


Paper towels don’t make for the sexiest of deals, but everyone needs them, and eight Bounty Select-A-Size Huge rolls for $14 is a great deal. For comparison’s sake, the same product costs $3 more at Target.

Note: Clip the $2 coupon to get the discount at checkout.


Dr. Meter Voltage Tester, $6 with code YP5NDZZY

Let me tell you from experience as a kid; getting shocked by an electrical outlet is not pleasant. So if you’re ever planning on doing any electrical work around your house, you’ll want this affordable voltage tester. Just place the tip within 1 cm of a wire or outlet, and it’ll turn green and beep if there’s current running through it.

Top Lifestyle Deals

Golfing gear is about as stereotypical as Father’s Day gifts can get, but this Callaway home range practice system actually looks really cool. $113 gets you a net, a hitting mat, and a caddy/feeder that can hold 35 balls and drop them onto the hitting zone with a tap of a club.

With a few short-lived exceptions, this is the best price Amazon’s ever listed, so tee off on this deal before it sells out.


OxyLED USB Rechargeable Headlight, $9 with code OXY1HL02

You don’t need to be a spelunker to use a headlamp; they’ll come in handy any time you need some extra light and two hands free. So even if you don’t think you need one right this minute, you might as well order one for $9 with code OXY1HL02.


It’s about time you do some cleaning out of your drawers. Get rid of those laundry-day-only undies in favor of your favorite underwear. If you missed out Monday, Aerie is now giving you 10 undies for only $30, no code needed, which is kind of insane seeing as they usually sell them for $12+.


Hayneedle is a one-stop-shop for affordable home goods that don’t look like they’re from the bargain bin. And, right now they’re giving you up to 60% off a ton of outdoor stuff (like Zero Gravity chairs for $39). Plus, a bunch of things are extra discounts. Check out the promo codes below:


If you’re still struggling with finding work appropriate clothes for affordable prices, head over to Bonobos. Right now, use the code ICECOLD and get 25% off a bunch of stretch summer weight chinos. There’s basically every color chino you could ever want (and some you probably don’t).


What better way to get ready for the better weather than discounted Under Armour gear? Take an extra 25% off practically every style you can think of, with styles for both men and women. From the classic Under Armour long-sleeves to training shoes to their Threadborne microthread technology, this gear is perfect for running outside in the warmer months.


A first aid kit is one of those things you should probably keep in your glove box, and you should definitely have at home, and at $12 for 299 pieces, there’s no excuse not to be prepared for minor accidents.

It includes bandages, gauze, medicines, an instant cold pack, and more, all tucked away in a refillable soft pack. You can thank us later.


Somehow, it’s already June and Marmot is thinking about getting you outside and get you geared up for less. Take 25% off select summer styles for both men and women. Markdowns include summer-ready outerwear, tops, bottoms, and more. It’s like Christmas for the outdoorsy people in your life.

Top Media Deals

Amazon’s running a Marvel digital comic sale that’s bigger than any Avengers movie today, with literally thousands of titles marked down to $5 or less. You’ll find everything from the Guardians of the Galaxy to Darth Vader to Deadpool to Captain America in there, and every hero in between, so there’s never been a better time to stock your digital shelves.

The selection is overwhelming (nearly 400 pages!), so if you have any specific suggestions, drop them in the comments.

Top Gaming Deals

It’s been awhile since we’ve seen a decent PlayStation Plus deal, so if your membership is due to expire soon (or not), grab another year for $48 today, which is about as low as it’s gotten since Sony jacked up the price by $10.


Magformers are sort of like LEGOs, except they’re magnetic, and thus more fun. Amazon’s discounting a few different sets today, including an actual walking robot kit. Just remember these prices are only available today, or until sold out.


If you’re still playing Pokémon Go, the Pokémon Go Plus bracelet isn’t just in stock, it’s actually on sale for about $6 less than MSRP.


The Logitech G502 was your choice for best gaming mouse (though you don’t need to be a gamer to appreciate its benefits), and the upgraded Proteus Spectrum model (which includes fully adjustable backlighting) is on sale for an all-time low $52 today, the best price of 2017.

The marquee spec here is the DPI range of 200-12,000, adjustable on the fly. There are also five easily movable and removable weights, and 11 customizable buttons, along with the classic Logitech dual-mode scroll wheel. Mechanical microswitches and a braided cable are also nice touches.
