Top Deals

Whether you’re building a new PC, or upgrading your current rig, today’s Amazon Gold Box is chock full of components and accessories to design the workstation of your dreams.

Inside, you’ll find great discounts on RAM, SSDs, graphics cards, cases, keyboards, monitors, and more. We’ve listed a few favorites below, but be sure to head over to Amazon to see all of the available items. Just note that like all Gold Box deals, these prices are only available today, and the best stuff will probably sell out early.


For those who don’t need a gooseneck kettle for pourover coffee, and aren’t willing to spring for the ultimate tea maker, this Ivation electric kettle is a fantastic buy at $50. It doesn’t just boil water; it heats it to a precise temperature depending on what you’re using it for. For example, you want green tea water to be about 40 degrees cooler than water you’d use to make oatmeal.

Just note that like all Gold Box deals, this price is only available today, or until sold out, so lock in your order before it boils dry.


This vacuum is about as simple as they come. You won’t find any hoses, detachable hand vacs, or battery packs. That being said, I’ve owned it for years, and absolutely love it. Its suction power is great, I’ve never had to replace any belts, and it’s incredibly light and maneuverable. For a smallish home, you could do a lot worse for $50, the best price Amazon’s ever listed.


DBPower White Noise Machine, $20 with code JSN3F7I9

If excessive noise (or utter silence) makes it difficult for you to doze off, this $20 white noise machine might be the key to a better night’s sleep. In addition to the standard white noise, you can choose from a variety of natural sounds like “Thunderstorm,” “Brook,” or “Lullaby 2,” and you can even set a timer so it won’t run all night.


LEGO has come to be dominated by licensed sets with strict instructions and little room for creativity, but you can still buy a big ol’ box of LEGO bricks for $24 on Amazon today, or about $5 less than usual. It doesn’t include Han Solo or a Minecraft creeper, but you will get 484 LEGOs, including 18 wheels and tires, and a large green base plate.


ASOS, Up to 50% off sale

Another day, another ASOS sale. This time, it’s up to 50% off practically every kind of clothing, shoe, or accessory you could dream of. This isn’t your run of the mill “summer sale,” because it’s got things from every other season marked down as well.

What to buy:

  • Live In Love Plus Shift Dress With Lace Top | $40
  • Brave Soul Button Knee Denim Skirt | $32
  • Red Tape Desert Boots In Brown Leather | $61
  • Selected Viona Jersey Dress with Scoop Back | $29
  • ASOS HEALER Heeled Sandals | $36

MAC Cosmetics, 30% off limited-edition colors

When brands do limited-edition runs, it’s hard not to jump at the chance to purchase them. MAC Cosmetics is not only letting you buy limited edition and fan-favorite products for the last time before the disappear, they’re taking 30% off. How nice of them.


Anker’s kevlar-wrapped Lightning cables arrived on the scene late last year, and quickly became the go-to cable of choice for most of our readers. Now, RAVPower is out with its own version, and you can get a 2-pack (one 3', and one 6' cable) for $13 with code K6VLNE3K.

These cables are brand new, so there aren’t a ton of reviews yet, but RAVPower generally makes very good charging products, so it might be worth taking the plunge.


Zika’s officially here, and Repel 100 was your pick for the best bug spray to protect yourself. If you haven’t picked up a bottle yet, and you have something else you’ve been meaning to buy, Amazon’s marked it down to $7 (from $8) as an add-on item.


If you’re in the market for a solid mid-range gaming headset on a budget, the Logitech G430 is down to $40 today, the best price we’ve seen since Black Friday.


While buying full games from a console’s digital storefront is rarely the most economical option, it’s often your only choice if you want to download arcade-style games and DLC, so when a deal pops up on gaming gift cards, it’s worth stocking up. For a limited time at Best Buy, when you buy one card for PSN, Xbox Live, Nintendo’s eShop, Steam, or some other, smaller digital storefronts, you can get another card of equal or lesser value for 20% off. You can even mix and match the cards, if you’re platform agnostic.


Aukey 14W Solar Charger, $35 with code JWCTEGUW | Aukey 20W Solar Charger, $39 with code 3AO5ECZZ

Whether you like to spend a lot of time outdoors, or just want to be prepared for extended power outages, these Aukey solar chargers can juice up two USB-powered devices at once using nothing but the sun. Unless space is a concern, I’d personally opt for the 20W model for $4 more.



MPOW HUD, $23 with code BY86G8MW

Heads up displays can keep your eyes on the road while still feeding you turn by turn navigation and other data, but up to now, they’ve been the province of high-end luxury vehicles. This $23 gadget from Mpow aims to change that.

Just set a smartphone face-up on the platform, open up a HUD-enabled navigation app, and the reflective glass “screen” will overlay transparent navigation data in front of your windshield. It’s a little bit hacky, but for $23, it could be worth trying out on your next road trip.


Travelpro makes your favorite rolling carry-on bags, and the ever-popular Crew 10 Suiter 22" is down to $118 on Amazon today, matching an all-time low.

I own the spinner version of this bag, and absolutely love it. It’s light, sturdy, built with great materials, and includes all of the pockets you need, including a garment section to keep suits and dresses from wrinkling. $118 may seem like a lot to spend on a bag, but if you take good care of it, this should last you for years.


ONME Magnetic Cord Manager, $7 with code ICL8Q3DE

Just when you thought you knew everything there was to know about cable management, the depths of Amazon toss you a surprise. This magnetic cable clip system includes one magnetic base that you can stick anywhere via its included adhesive, and three magnetic clips that you attach to your most-used cables, allowing them to stick to the base effortlessly.

There are surely less expensive cable holders out there—we post deals on them frequently—but the allure of just dropping your cable onto a magnetic base and knowing that it’ll stay put is awfully tempting.


16" Magnetic Knife Bar, $17 with code 9GUL4X9E | 13.5" Magnetic Knife Bar, $12 with code V44HNAH8

If you’re going to invest in good knives, you really ought to grab a magnetic knife bar to show them off. Not only does it look cool; it also won’t dull your blades like a knife block can. Depending on how many knives you own, there are two different lengths on sale to choose from today.


You know when you ask someone to take a picture of you and your family on vacation, and you quickly learn that almost nobody understands how to take a decent photo? With a mini tripod, you can be in total control of those long range selfies, and this $9 model works with everything from DSLRs to smartphones.

Pair it with these smartphone camera lens attachments for even more shooting options.


In the Chromebook world, a 1080p 15" display and 4GB of RAM qualify as high-end luxuries, but this Acer Chromebook 15 is priced like its smaller, slower brethren today. Obviously, there are better computers out there, but this would be great for watching movies and getting work done on the road.

And yes, this model will support Android apps.


These solar powered motion sensor lights have proven incredibly popular with our readers over the past year, and you can pick up a pair of jumbo-sized, 20 LED models from MPOW for $31 today.


Do you need a color-shifting Razer mouse pad? Of course not. But dammit, it looks cool, and today’s $45 price tag is a match for the best Amazon’s ever offered.

The mat, like the rest of Razer’s peripherals, can be controlled through Razer’s Synapse software, so you can tell your new mouse pad to breath or react in unison with your mouse, keyboard, and headset.


O’Keefe’s Working Hands is Amazon’s top-selling hand cream, and sports a 4.6 star review average from over 6,000 customers. If you want to see what all the fuss is about, you can pick up two jars for just $9 today.


69 magnetic screwdrivers for $20. Nice!


If you hurry, Amazon’s selling your undisputed favorite travel mug, the Contigo Autoseal West Loop, for as little as $13, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen, and a solid discount from its usual $18-$20. Just be sure to grab one before the deal cools off.


Anker’s PowerCore line is far and away your favorite variety of USB battery packs, and the newest member of the family, the PowerCore 5000, just got its first discount.

5,000mAh is a good size for a battery pack. It’s small enough to fit in your pocket, but it should still net you more than a full phone charge, which should get you through even the most trying days. Obviously, there are good reasons to own a larger pack, but a smallish battery should be in everyone’s arsenal as well. This pack has sold for $20 ever since it was released last month, but for a limited time, you can snag it for $14.


If you’re ready to take the plunge into LED lighting, this 6-pack of higly-rated TCP soft white (2700K) bulbs is down to just $18 on Amazon right now, one of the best per-bulb prices we’ve ever seen. They aren’t dimmable, so you won’t want to put them in certain fixtures, but it’s a great bulk pack for filling out ceiling lights and lamps throughout your house.

Once you’ve got them, check to see if your local utility company offers rebates for purchasing LEDs. If so, it’s possible these could pay for themselves even quicker than they would otherwise.

If you prefer daylight bulbs, the equivalent 5000K pack is just a couple bucks more. If you want my advice, use daylight in rooms where you do things (offices, kitchens, bathrooms), and soft white in spaces where you want to relax (bedrooms, living rooms).
