Top Deals

It’s officially hammock season, and you can join in the fun for just $25-$35 courtesy of today’s Amazon Gold Box.


Inside, you’ll find over a dozen Yukon Outfitters camping hammocks marked down to impulse-level prices. These hammocks are made of lightweight nylon for easy travel, and several even include built-in mosquito netting if you want to relax without worrying about Zika. Just note that like all Gold Box deals, these prices are only available today, or until sold out.

By the way, unless you’re going to permanently mount your new hammock in your yard or on a stand, you’ll probably want to pick up a cheap set of tree straps to go with it.

Today only, Amazon’s offering Crocs shoes for the whole family starting under $20 per pair. The cheaper models are the swiss cheese rubber monstrosities you’re probably thinking of, but there are also some decent looking “real” shoes available as well.

If you want to experience the joys of cooking cooking on a great skillet, but don’t have the cash for an All-Clad, this tri-ply Cuisinart is a solid facsimile, and only $50 today. Yeah, that’s a little extravagant compared to the $20 nonstick you bought in college, but it’ll heat up faster and more evenly, and if you take good care of it, it’ll last you your entire life.

If you don’t own a pressure cooker, you can fix that today with this $50 Cuisinart. It’s refurbished, but it’d set you back an extra $20 new on Amazon, where it has fantastic reviews.

The Osprey Farpoint 55 took the Wirecutter title of best travel backpack, and Amazon’s marked it down to $135 today, in two different sizes. That’s an all-time low, and about $45 less than usual.

By now, you should know that Anker PowerLine Lightning cables are incredibly popular, but did you know there’s another tier of cables above them? Anker’s PowerLine+ line increases the bend lifespan from 5,000 to 6,000, adds a nylon braided exterior, and includes an innovative carrying case that keeps your unused cord length from tangling. Want to see one for yourself? The 6' model is available in red for $14 today, or a couple bucks less than usual.

Assuming it’s legal in your state, a good radar/laser detector can pay for itself over time, and this highly-rated Escort Passport S55 is on sale for just $109 on BuyDig’s eBay storefront, or about $20 less than Amazon.

Garmin’s Vivosmart was your second favorite fitness tracker in this week’s Co-Op, and while this model doesn’t include a built-in heart rate monitor, BuyDig will throw in a detachable one, plus a $30 VUDU credit all for just $69. Just use code GETFIT at checkout to save $10.

Refurb Pebble Time Round, $117 with code SALE3 | Refurb Pebble Time, $81 with code SALE3 | Refurb Pebble Time Steel, $135 with code SALE3

Today only, Groupon’s discounting refurbs of the excellent Pebble Time and Pebble Time Round smart watches for as little as $81. Just select the model you want, and use promo code SALE3 at checkout to save 10%.

Apple’s 15" Retina MacBook Pro isn’t for everybody, but if you demand a lot from your laptop, it’s one of the best options on the market. The newest model comes complete with a 256GB SSD and 16GB of RAM, and you can save a whopping $400 on yours today, with no sales tax for most buyers.

For just $6 today, you can sip your drinks in style with a four pack stainless steel drinking straws. I own this exact set, and use them for everything from Coke Zero to Moscow Mules. And don’t worry, they come with a little tube cleaner to help you wash them.

You guys love Rubbermaid’s Easy Find Lid leftover storage set (which is currently on sale for $16), but this alternative from Sterlite has a few tricks up its sleeve.

The concept is basically the same: Lots of container sizes, with relatively few lid sizes. But Sterlite’s color coding system arguably makes it even easier to find the proper lid. Oh, and about those lids: They all include a sealable vent, which allows the container to release a little steam in the microwave, without expelling all of the moisture from your food. Clever!

Oh hey, would you look at that, it’s another Amazon sample box, this time featuring lotions, oral care products, sunscreen, and other beauty products. This one is more expensive than most at $15, but it comes with a $15 credit on your next beauty purchase.

Here are some other sample boxes that are still available from yesterday:

6-Pack MicroUSB Cables, $7 with code 6USBCORD

It never hurts to have some extra microUSB cables, and you can get six today in various lengths for just $7 with code 6USBCORD. If only Lightning cables were that affordable.

If you have any old hard drives or SSDs lying around, this affordable docking station can turn two of them into USB external drives for any computer. We post enclosures like this fairly often, but this is pretty unique in that it supports both 2.5” and 3.5” drives, and can even clone one to the other without the use of a computer.

Tide Smart Pouch 3-Pack, $14 after Subscribe & Save and $3 coupon

For a limited time, Amazon will sell you three pouches of Tide HE-compatible laundry detergent (totaling 144 ounces or 93 loads) for just $14. These pouches are designed basically as refills for plastic Tide bottles, but as long as that doesn’t bother you, this is a fantastic price-per-ounce for any detergent, let alone name brand. Just be sure to clip the $3 coupon on the page and use Amazon Subscribe & Save.

If Google Shopping Express operates in your area, here’s your no-brainer deal of the day. LivingSocial is selling six month memberships, plus a $20 credit, for just $5. Obviously, this is a good deal based on the credit alone, but Shopping Express memberships cost $10 per month, so the whole package carries an $80 value.

Note: LivingSocial has a ZIP code tool available on the page, if you aren’t sure if Google’s expanded to your region yet.

Squatty Potty 9", $19. Discount shown at checkout.

Did you know you’ve been pooping all wrong? It’s true! Luckily, the obscenely popular Squatty Potty is designed to lift your legs into an ideal bowel movement position, and you can get a 7" or 9" model for just $19 on Amazon today. These things never go on sale, so if you’ve had your eye on one, it’s officially time to poop or get off the pot.

Note: These are listed for over $25 on the product page, but they’ll drop to $19 automatically at checkout. You must purchase from Squatty Potty’s Amazon listing, not Amazon’s first party one.

The only acceptable place to use a Bluetooth headset is in the car while driving, and this $10 headset answers the call with an air vent-mounted charging dock. Once you get a call, just lift it off the dock, and it’s ready to go. And since it can connect to two phones at once, it’ll still connect to your phone automatically, even if you share your car.

We’ve seen several deals lately on RFID-blocking front pocket wallets, but if none of them have been quite what you’re looking for, maybe this one will fit the bill. It’s leather, it can hold about five cards and some cash, and it’s only $7 today.

Etekcity Body Weight Bathroom Scale, $14 with code HLNI3XKL

This bathroom scale doesn’t have any bells & whistles; just a sleek look, a great price, and tons of five-star reviews. Save a couple bucks with promo code HLNI3XKL.

Two and a half years after launch, PS4 console discounts are still pretty rare, but you can save 10% on a couple of bundles today on Groupon with promo code SALE3.

The parade of ridiculous Xbox One deals continue today with a 1TB holiday bundle (which includes three games), plus Fallout 4, The Division, and Doom, all for the standard $399 price of the console alone. Even if you don’t care for all of those bonus games, they’d be easy enough to sell.

American Gods is one of the most popular novels from the prolific Neil Gaiman, and the source material for an upcoming TV show. If it’s been on your to-read list, you can grab a Kindle copy today for just $3.

Update: Back in stock!

It might not be mission-critical equipment for your home, but a good label maker is a nice gadget to keep around, and Amazon’s top seller is back in stock for just $10 today, matching an all-time low.


If you remember the old label makers that literally pressed the letters into a piece of tape, this is a bit more advanced than what you’re picturing. The Dymo LabelManager 160 can print in eight fonts at six sizes, along with clipart and special characters, and you can even preview the entire label on its LCD screen before you print. Every time we post this deal, it sells out quickly, so you’ll want to grab yours fast.

Nekteck Jump Starter, $50 with code DU8TUNFS

We’ve posted several deals on USB power banks that can also jump start a dead car battery, but this model from Nekteck puts out 600 amps, compared to 400-450 on most other models. For your standard dead car battery, 400 is probably enough, but if it’s really dead, or hasn’t been started in a long time, the extra oomph could make a big difference.

Snack Bar Sample Box, $5 + $5 Snack Bar Credit

Update: Here are similar deals on an energy drink, soap, and snack sample boxes.

Amazon’s back at it again with another irresistible sample box deal. This time around, $5 gets you five or more assorted snack bars, plus a $5 credit to spend on your next snack bar purchase from Amazon. These tend to sell out within hours after we post them, so I wouldn’t chew on it for too long.

You’ve heard of Automatic’s smart driving assistant, but if $80-$100 is too rich for your blood, this cheap OBD2 dongle connects to any iPhone or Android device over Wi-Fi, and can fulfill many of the same functions using various third party apps.

The new Roku streaming stick is all you need, and Amazon just knocked $10 off its base price, the first discount we’ve ever seen. Even if you already have the old model, it might be worth $40 just for the ability to stream audio to your mobile device, enabling pseudo-wireless headphones so you can watch TV in bed without waking your significant other.

ADATA’s Premiere line of SSDs isn’t nearly as fast or as well-known as Samsung’s 850 series, but it still got a solid review from Anandtech, and this 480 GB model is down to an absurdly low $94 on Newegg’s eBay storefront, complete with a three year warranty.

A few months ago, I bought the this exact drive in order to build a my own DIY external SSD to store photos, and it’s worked incredibly well so far. Seeing this price though, I wish I’d waited.
