Top Tech Deals

You probably know by now that Anker’s PowerCore line is your favorite brand of USB battery packs, and the 20,000mAh model is marked down to just $34 today, or about $6 less than usual.

For reference, that’s enough juice to charge an iPhone 7 about seven times, or a Galaxy S8 about four times, making it perfect for sharing during long flights, camping trips, or conferences.


NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1750, $90 after $20 coupon

Unless you live in a giant house, NETGEAR’s Nighthawk R6700 should be more than enough router for the vast majority of people, and you can pick it up for just $90 on Amazon today, after you clip the $20 coupon on the product page. That’s within a few bucks of the best price we’ve ever seen on this model.


If you have a small PC case and/or a small budget, but still want to play new PC games at reasonably good settings, the NVIDIA GTX 1060 is the graphics card for you. Get EVGA’s 3GB version for an all-time low $165 right now from Amazon.


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 9P3G328L. It also comes with a detachable USB adapter (with standard US prongs) that can be used as a standalone charger as well.


Never has a house been built with a sufficient number of power outlets, but that’s easy to remedy with this 2-pack of AmazonBasics power strips for $9.


Pricing for 1TB externals has bottomed out around $50 for a couple of years now, so when you find one for $46, you should pull the trigger. Even if you don’t need one yourself, give it to a friend or family member who isn’t diligent about backing up their files.

If 1TB won’t cut it, here’s a 5TB drive for $140, no power cord required.


Mpow’s aggressively named Bullfight Bluetooth headphones are down to just $13 today with promo code NTKTVCRO, one of the best prices we’ve seen on any Mpow earbuds. In addition to the slim ear pieces and seven hour battery, they even snap together magnetically to pause your music and keep them securely around your neck when not in use.


Once again, Amazon’s offering solid savings on one of its popular (and already absurdly affordable) Fire Tablets. Save $10 and pick up a 16GB 7" tablet for $60, in your choice of three different colors.


I know 4K is the new hotness, but 2560x1440 QHD monitors still give you a ton of screen real estate, and work with a wider variety of computers. So if you’re looking to upgrade your workspace, $170 is a terrific price for a QHD IPS panel, let alone one from a top-tier manufactuer like Acer.


Logitech’s K780 keyboard can connect to essentially any modern computing device over either Bluetooth or with a USB wireless dongle, including smartphones, tablets, home theater PCs, game consoles and smart TVs as well.

The same could be said for a lot of wireless keyboards though, so what’s so great about this one? The K780 can stay paired to three devices at once, and switch between them at the touch of a button, so you won’t have to go through a cumbersome pairing process every time you want to switch from controlling your smart TV to your Xbox One. It’ll also run for up to two years on a pair of included AAA batteries, and even has a stand built right in for phones and tablets.

$60's the best price Amazon’s ever listed on this model, so you never need to type in your Netflix password with a joystick ever again.


You can never have enough external storage, so when you can get 4TB for $95, you should take full advantage. Just note that this model does require a power cord, so it’ll need to stay tethered in the same place, but that’s fine for an office environment, or for use as a PS4 or Xbox One external drive.


SanDisk Extreme 500 Portable SSDs - 250GB, $100 | 500GB, $170

If only the fastest storage will do, SanDisk’s Extreme 500 external SSDs are on sale for $30-$40 off their usual prices right now on Amazon. Obviously, you’ll get a ton more space for your money by buying standard external hard drives, but none of those are even in the same ballpark in terms of speed.


Anker SoundCore Nano, $16 with code MOMANK77. Pink and silver only.

Anker’s SoundCore is your favorite Bluetooth speaker, but if you need something a little more portable, they don’t get much smaller than the SoundCore nano.

With a sole 3W driver and only four hours of battery life, the nano’s not going to blow you away, but its aluminum construction looks fantastic, you can tie it to the outside of a bag, and it’ll get the job done for quick listening sessions on the go. These were on sale for $19 a few weeks ago, but now you can pick one up in silver or pink for just $16 for Mother’s Day.


DJI’s Phantom 4 camera drone changed the game with automatic obstacle avoidance and subject tracking, and you can get the drone for an all-time low $799 today.


Aukey USB Wall Charger, $5 with code AUCHARGE

You know the little charging brick that came with your phone? Throw it out, and spend $5 on this replacement from Aukey (with code AUCHARGE). It’s only slightly larger than Apple’s standard iPhone charger, but it includes two ports, folding prongs, and 2.4A of current (shared between the ports) to charge your devices faster.


Anker’s PowerLine Lightning cables have long been our readers’ favorites, and two different models are on sale today on Amazon.

First up, $24 gets you a 3-pack of standard PowerLine cables in three different lengths, including an extra-long 10' cable that’d be great for using on the couch. That price is about $6 less than this pack usually goes for.

But if only the best will do, you can also save a couple bucks off the usual price of the new PowerLine II Dura cable, which is even stronger than the original, and most importantly, includes a lifetime warranty if you do manage to break it.


Anker PowerDrive 2 Elite, $10 with code BEST2212

Anker’s new PowerDrive 2 Elite can output 12W on both ports simultaneously, and it looks really nice to boot. Use promo code BEST2212 at checkout to save $4.


You don’t need to sell a kidney to afford noise-cancelling Bluetooth earbuds; these 4 star-rated Cowin E-7s are just $39 right now, or $31 off with promo code AU2KA5OO.

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.

Dr. Meter IR thermometer, $9 with code NMRHYJ39

Update: Sold out

IR thermometers are perfect for everything from cooking to finding air conditioning leaks in your house, but most importantly, they’re just a ton of fun to mess around with. For $9, there’s no reason not to own one.


Update: Sold out

Our readers love Lodge’s cast iron skillets, but have you tried their dutch oven? It’s only $26 on Amazon today, well below its usual $35-$50 range. Frankly, I would think it cost more than that just to ship the thing; it weighs in at 12 pounds.


Update: This one’s sold out, but here’s a similar pillow for just a few bucks more.

Wedge pillows are great for sitting up in bed, elevating your legs, and some other stuff we won’t get into right now, and Prime members can own one for $18, an all-time low.


Motion-sensing night lights are great for stumbling to the bathroom at night, sure, but they also work wonders in dark closets and cabinets. Today on Amazon, you can grab three of them for just $12.


Ohuhu Wool Laundry Dryer Balls, $11 with code OHUHU016

Wool dryer balls are the hottest laundry invention of the decade, and you can get six of them for $11 with promo code OHUHU016. Just toss them in your dryer, and your clothes will dry faster, come out softer, and have fewer wrinkles at the end of the cycle.


Herman Miller furniture is legendary, and also legendarily out of reach for most of us. But if you have one chair, table, or bed that you’ve just been dying to get your hands on, everything they sell is 15% off today, so you won’t find a better chance to splurge.

The Aeron office chair is one of our readers’ favorites, and the Embody is another great option for your home office. If you’re looking for something a little less heavy, the Setu is an awesome task chair, and the Eames is of course, timeless.

Meanwhile, I’m sitting here drooling over the Noguchi coffee table. Find me on Venmo if you want to donate to the cause.


Little Giant Ladders are some of the most popular on the market, and you can get a 15' model for an all-time low $150 from Amazon today. This thing can work as an A-frame ladder, an extension ladder, a 90 degree ladder, and even a stair ladder, making this one of the most versatile ways to get high.


Breville’s reader-favorite Smart Ovens almost never go on sale, but Amazon’s offering a rare $50 discount today on the most popular model.

I got one of these as a wedding gift last year, and it’s every bit as good as advertised. In addition to the obvious use cases like toasting bread or cooking a frozen pizza, I basically use it as my “real” oven for any recipe I can fit, since it preheats significantly faster than a full sized oven, and doesn’t heat up the entire house.


20% off Mrs. Meyer’s hand soap and dish soap with coupon

Mrs. Meyer’s plant-based soap is normally quite a bit more expensive than the competition, but with a 20% Amazon coupon, it’s priced just right. Choose between 3-packs of their hand soap or dish soap in multiple scents. Personally, I opt for Basil or Lemon Verbena, but add your favorite to your cart, and you’ll see the discount at checkout.


Soylent, clip coupon for 20% off

Grabbing breakfast or lunch with coworkers can be a great way to break up the day, but more often than not you’ll just wallow in your own indecision before ordering a bad $17 sandwich.

Break the cycle with Soylent, a nutritionally complete meal replacement shake that now comes in multiple flavors (Coffiest is good!). Clip the coupon to save 35% off your first Subscribe and Save order (you can just cancel after the first delivery if you don’t want more).


Anker already makes a bunch of your favorite tech gear, so why not add flashlights to the list? This week, you can get two of their entry-level LC40 lights for $19, an all-time low.

Somewhat surprisingly, this model doesn’t include a built-in rechargeable battery, but it can run for six hours on a rechargeable (and inexpensive) 18650 battery.


If coworkers have been stealing your food out of the office fridge, or you just want to keep a couple drinks cold at the beach, this flexible lunch box is basically made out of ice packs. Just freeze it overnight, and it’ll keep your food and drinks chilled for up to 10 hours.


Update: This price has continued to drop, now down to $156! Spend your savings on more meat.

This $195 $168 $162 $156 Char-Broil electric smoker makes cooking jerky, brisket, or (insert meat of your choice) as easy as dropping in some wood chips and hitting a few buttons. With precise temperature control and a large smoke box, you’ll have complete command over the finished product. Today’s price is an all-time low, which means you’ll have more money leftover to buy meat. Lots and lots of meat.


If you still haven’t upgraded your morning routine with a life-changing wake-up light, the top-of-the-line model has never been cheaper than it is today on Amazon.

The high-end HF3520 comes packed with five different wake-up sounds, an FM radio, the ability to set two different alarms, and a color-shifting light that accurately mimics the gradually shifting light you’d see during a real sunrise. I’ve been using a cheaper model for years, and I miss is desperately whenever I travel.

We posted this late last week at $95, which at the time was an all-time low, so today’s deal is truly unprecedented.


Refurb Amazon Echo, $135

If you’ve been itching to get an Amazon Echo (and you really should get one), but balk at the $180 price tag, Amazon’s offering up certified refurbs for $135 right now, the best price of the year.

Amazon’s certified refurbished products are all inspected and tested to work like new, and include the same one-year warranty you’d get with a brand new product, so there’s really no downside to going this route.


Yi, manufacturer of your favorite affordable action cam, also makes a home IP security camera, and you can pick it up for just $35 today, or $5 less than usual.

The Yi Home Camera includes all the basic features you’d expect, including two-way audio, automatic activity alerts to your phone, and remote monitoring. And unlike other companies that rely on cloud storage and monthly fees, the Yi stores your files on an onboard microSD card, no membership required. That means it’s less than ideal for home burglary situations, but perfectly adequate for saying hi to your dog while you’re at work.


2x OxyLED T-02 Night Lights, $22 with code 2KINJA2U

OxyLED’s T02-U is my favorite motion-sensing night light in the uber-popular T-02 line, and the popular lighting company is offering our readers the best deal ever on it today. Just add two to your cart and use code 2KINJA2U at checkout to get them both for $22.

Note: Just to be clear, you’ll need to add two one-packs to your cart. If you use this code on the 2-pack, it won’t work.

Unlike most stick-anywhere motion lights (including most other T-02 models), the T-02U includes a built-in rechargeable battery, an always-on mode, and two rows of LEDs to put out more light.

Top Lifestyle Deals

The Target Beauty Box comes out once a month and usually sells out quicker than you’d like. If you hurry, you can pick up nine samples of some really impressive beauty goods for only $10.

This one includes:

Or if you were eyeing April’s box, but never pulled the trigger, you can still pick it up for $7. This one has samples from Sally Hansen, La Roche Posay, Dr. Teal’s and more.


TriggerPoint GRID Foam Roller, $24 for Prime members

TriggerPoint’s “GRID” is one of the most popular foam rollers on the market, and Amazon’s offering Prime members the black 13" model for $24 today. You’ll even get some instructional videos to help you get started.


With fully 39 different length settings between 1 and 20 mm, Braun’s Beard & Hair trimmer is perfectly suited for, well, both your beard and your hair. It even comes with a free Gillette Fusion ProGlide razor with FlexBall to tidy up your edges. Not bad for $30.


The best time to pick up personal care items is when you have a coupon. Right now, take 20% off all personal care and beauty items from Jet.com with the code MAYEVERYDAY. Brands like Neutrogena, Dove, Q-tips, and Oral-B, and more are included, so you can basically restock your medicine cabinet for 20% off.

Just know that the most you’ll be able to save is $35, but that’s a hell of a lot of toothpaste and sunscreen.


Indochino Premium Suits, $350 + free shipping, use promo code KINJA, expires 5/8

You voted Indochino your favorite custom clothing company by a wide margin, and this week you can dress yourself in one of their premium suits for just $350. Use promo code KINJA.

Advertisement

You do not have to go through the measurement and customization process to lock in this discount. You can checkout now and submit later, which makes it very easy to gift a suit.

This matches our exclusive Black Friday discount, which is the best deal Indochino’s ever offered, and one of our most popular exclusives ever.

Having a suit that fits perfectly is great, but the little details Indochino lets you customize, from your jacket lapels to pocket flaps to accent stiching around your buttons, are where things get fun.

How It Works

Measure and customize from home...

Follow the directions on Indochino’s site to submit your measurements and customize your suit. Once the suit arrives, if anything doesn’t fit quite right, Indochino will provide directions for your local tailor, along with a $75 credit to cover their work. If for whatever reason your tailor cannot resolve the issues, Indochino will remake your suit. Shipping and return shipping are free.

If you live near a showroom...

Purchase your suit online with our discount and take your receipt/account info into an Indochino showroom. They’ll do your measurements, walk you through your customization options, and have your suit delivered to the showroom. Return once it arrives for any final alterations if they’re needed.

Those who already have a closet full of suits may want to opt for something more interesting like the Indigo Twill Windowpane, while the rest of us should go for something versatile.

Update: Vader Down is also on sale, and takes place between Volume 2 and Volume 3.


Never tell me the odds that Amazon would host an incredible sale on signed Star Wars memorabilia to celebrate May the Fourth. Everything from a Kenny Baker/R2D2 photo all the way up to a Dark Horse comics and glossy photos signed by all the big names (Jar Jar Binks, notwithstanding) is there. These prices will set like the two suns of Tatooine at the end of the day, so it’s do or do not, there is no try.

Star Wars Battlefront: Ultimate Edition, $20 - PS4 | Xbox One | Xbox One Digital

Star Wars Battlefront isn’t a perfect game, but it’s a decent way for Star Wars fans to kill time until The Last Jedi comes out, and you can get the Ultimate Edition (complete with season pass) for just $20 today on PS4, Xbox One, and as a digital Xbox One download.


If you’re getting bored of Catan, Puerto Rico is a great next addition to your board game collection.

Each player utilizes different roles -mayor, captain, settler, trader, prospector, craftsman, or builder to score the most victory points with their colony. Players can act on every turn of the game, allowing them to choose between shipping goods for points or building an impressive city. Players must manage their colonists, erect a variety of buildings, build up their plantation, and sell or ship goods. With dozens of options, Puerto Rico is a streamlined game that can be played in about an hour and handles up to five players.

You can out Board Game Geek’s review for more details, but don’t wait too long, as this is an all-time low price.


If you’ve caught drone fever, but don’t have hundreds of dollars to spend on a DJI Phantom, Amazon will sell you a basic camera-equipped quadcopter today for just $38.

Advertisement

It should go without saying that this isn’t a professional tool by any means. The camera only shoots 720p, and the results look like something that might have come out of a 2009-era smartphone (here’s a sample video). But hey, it’s a camera in the sky for under $40!


Humble’s Very Positive Bundle is built around one core concept, and it’s a good one: Positive user reviews on Steam. All eight games here boast at least 88% positive ratings from players, so there isn’t a stinker in the bunch, even if you may not have heard of every title.

Advertisement

As always, different games are locked behind different price tiers, but with a top tier of $10, it’s one of the more affordable bundles Humble’s run.


If you need a new controller for your Xbox, or just want to upgrade your PC gamepad, it’s your lucky day.

Advertisement

You’ve got two options to choose from here: The controller by itself for $27, or the controller plus a copy of Metal Gear Solid V for $40. Just note that the latter bundle comes with an Xbox One S controller with built-in Bluetooth, whereas the cheaper controller is the older model without Bluetooth.
