If you’ve been itching to build out a true, projector-based home theater, Amazon’s marking down a 1080p ViewSonic by about $200, today only.

At 2200 lumens, it’s not the brightest projector out there, so you’ll want to set it up in a room with good ambient light control. That said, it does feature vertical lens shift, which gives you a lot more mounting flexibility by allowing you to move the location of the projector image without physically moving the device.

This deal is only available today, so you don’t have a ton of time to research, but Lifehacker’s put together a nice guide to get you started.


A pair (or two) of well-reviewed Bose headphones won’t break the bank today. In fact, $90 is $10 better than Prime Day, and a match for an all-time low. Just note that the remote on the discounted set will only work on iOS devices, but the audio will obviously work on anything with a headphone jack (which ironically doesn’t include the newest iPhone).


TaoTronics VR Headset, $10 with code VDJJ6HNS

This Google Cardboard-compatible headset doesn’t have a ton of reviews, but it does include the all-important magnetic button, and $10 is the best price we’ve ever seen on one of these things. Over the past month or so, I’ve discovered that a ton of apartment complexes offer Cardboard-compatible virtual tours, which were actually pretty helpful.


TP-Link Archer C7, $76 with code 15TPLC7

While mesh routers have broken through in 2016, the Wirecutter-recommended TP-Link Archer C7 though is one of the best “traditional” routers you can get, and it’ll only cost you $76 today with promo code 15TPLC7. It was down to $70 around Black Friday, but this is one of the best deals we’ve seen since the holidays.


If you shop regularly at Best Buy anyway, you might as well buy this $150 gift card to get the bonus $15 code.


5,000mAh Kmashi Battery Pack, $6 with code I3VWAP3L | 10,000mAh, $9 with code USNL22D5 | 15,000mAh, $13 with code BY6YG3UB

These KMASHI battery packs don’t include fancy features like Quick Charge technology or built-in cables, but with these deals, they’re selling at some of the best price-per-mAh ratios we’ve ever seen. Just pick your size, and be sure to note the promo codes.


Until such a day comes that all of our devices use USB-C ports exclusively, you’ll need some USB 3.0-to-C cables to ease the transition. Today though, you can save about $2 off the usual price of Anker’s reader-favorite PowerLine+ cables, complete with a carrying pouch.


Phone cameras will never have true interchangeable lenses, but you can still take fisheye, wide angle, and macro photos with this 3-in-1 clip-on lens kit from Anker. Be sure to check out the sample photos uploaded by customers to get an idea of what this kit is capable of.


Aukey Dual Port Charger, $6 with code AUKWALLA

You know the little charging brick that came with your phone? Throw it out, and spend $6 on this replacement from Aukey (with code AUKWALLA). It’s only slightly bigger than Apple’s standard iPhone charger, but it includes two ports, folding prongs, and 2.4A of current (instead of 1A) to charge your devices faster.

Sometimes, a normal water bottle just isn’t enough. This vacuum-insulated vessel from RTIC holds 64 ounces of your favorite fluid, be it water, coffee, or beer, and keeps it cold for up to 24 hours, or hot for six.

I own RTIC can koozies and a tumbler, and their temperature regulation is nothing short of magical, so the bigger the better, as far as I’m concerned. $17 is an all-time low price, and everyone gets free shipping from RTIC, even if you aren’t a Prime member.


There are two types of people in the world: People who say they love chocolate, and liars, and there’s really no point to being the latter.

Just in time for Easter, and with Mother’s Day looming on the horizon, Amazon’s taking a flat 25% off when you spend $25 or more on dozens of eligible chocolates. Options range from supermarket staples like M&Ms and Reeses to fancy giftables from the likes of Cailler, Green & Black’s, and Lindt. Just mix and match until you’ve spent $25 (all items must be shipped and sold by Amazon, not by third party sellers), and you’ll see the discount automatically at checkout.


While it doesn’t have the brand recognition of Nest’s learning Thermostat, the Ecobee3 Smart Thermostat one-ups its most popular competitor by including a wireless remote sensor that you can place elsewhere in your house, giving the thermostat a more accurate picture of your home’s overall temperature. Plus, it’ll work with Siri via HomeKit, and your Amazon Echo too.

This $50 off deal was available on Amazon briefly last week, but if you missed out, they’re back in stock today.


Amazon’s Dash Button birthday sale was supposed to end yesterday, but it’s still going strong if you haven’t taken advantage yet.

Until the deal ends, you can buy up to three Dash buttons of your choice for $1 each with promo code DASHBDAY. And as always, the first time you use them to order an item from Amazon, you’ll automatically receive a $5 discount. That basically means if you maximize this deal and use all three, you’ll be getting $12 worth of value essentially for free.


Cue your internet of (dog) shit jokes, but I think this is smartphone-connected dog training collar is actually pretty useful.

It works like most other training collars, with options to invoke a high pitch tone, vibration, or varying levels of static shock (which is totally optional) to encourage good behavior in your furry friend. The key difference is that you control it from your smartphone, meaning you never have to hunt down the remote, and dog sitters can install the app and use it while you’re away as well. Today’s deal is $10 less than usual, and an all-time low.


Mpow Solar Light, $16 with code WVOTXL52 | 2-Pack, $30 with code NFBJ9WYL | 4-Pack, $57 with code M5KVSIOU

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 get one for $16 today, or buy more to save more. Just be sure to note the promo codes in each case.


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.

Cuisinart’s Multiclad Pro cookware uses the same steel and aluminum triple-ply construction of All-Clad pans, but at $182 for a complete set, you can actually afford to buy them. That’s an all-time low for this collection, which rarely dips below $200. If you’re still using the $10 pans you bought when you moved into your first apartment, these are going to blow you away.


If you’ve ever thought about pulling out your blender to make a smoothie, sauce, or dip, and then held off because you didn’t want to clean 12,537 different parts, this deal is for you. The 4 star-rated Cuisinart Smart Stick Hand Blender is down to $26 today on Amazon, which is within a few pennies of its all-time low price.

The big advantage here is that unlike a traditional blender, you can dip the Smart Stick into whatever container you were already using to hold your ingredients; be it a single-serve cup or a huge mixing bowl. That saves you time, and means fewer dishes to clean up once you’re done. Reviewers also say it chops through everything from fruit to ice cubes with no trouble, so it really can be a full blender replacement for most use cases.


Gonex 80L Duffel Bag, $16 with code RWO6ZC4M | 60L, $15 with code ZNHWSLLF

A big-ass duffel bag is something everyone should keep handy, and you can get one for $16 today in the color of your choice. Just be sure to use promo code RWO6ZC4M at checkout.

Or, grab a more reasonably sized 60L bag for $15 with the code ZNHWSLLF:


25' Globe String Light Strand, $14 with code VSYT2XHZ

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 $13 today. It’s already warm outside, so string these up on your patio and enjoy the outdoors.


One of the best investments you can make in your own happiness is upgrading the crappy shower head that came with your house or apartment. Delta makes your favorite models, and we’ve spotted deals on three different options today.

First up is the top-selling Delta 75152, now down to an all-time low $16. Aside from a single switch that toggles between 1.75 and 1 gallons per minute, this showerhead doesn’t have any notable features to speak of. But I can tell you from years of experience that its water coverage is beyond excellent. Each of the four spray holes uses Delta’s H2Okinetic system to agitate the water and create a full, perfectly dispersed wall of water, rather than four individual streams. It’s a difficult sensation to describe, but I absolutely recommend you try it for yourself.

If you need a wand-style shower head, we’re not hanging you out to dry. You can choose from the 58467 In2ition with four settings for $73, or the 58480-PK In2ition with five settings for $92. The latter includes the same H2Okinetic spray holes as the 75152 (but a lot more of them), so that’s what I’d go for, personally.

Beauty Blenders have become almost the end-all, be-all of makeup application. But spending $20 on one sponge that you use to put stuff on your face and then wash away is slightly ridiculous.

I’m just going to kick off this post by sharing this product’s Amazon description.

ARE YOU A HAIRY APE?

No problem. Guys feel confident shirtless after using OXA Back Shaver. So, if you have “patchy” or “spotty” patches of hair on your back or body or if you are so hairy that you are often mistaken for being a “hairy ape” there is no job too great for the OXA Back Shaver.

I don’t think back hair is why most men feel uncomfortable shirtless, but I digress.

This product looks very similar to the BaKlade, which we’ve written about before. It doesn’t have many reviews to go off of, but it’s 1/3 the price of the name brand with promo code SEWUJQ32, so it might be worth checking out if you’re a HAIRY APE.

Just don’t forget to bring Advil to take once you’re done paddling.

The Amopé is an electric foot file that literally files down the gross calluses on your feet until they slightly resemble that of a modern human. Right now, grab one for $24 in blue, or $25 in pink. Pick one up and start taking better care of your treads.

FYI: This isn’t Prime shipping eligible, but there is free shipping.


LifeStraws are great backpack staples for hiking, or nice gifts for the outdoorsmen in your life. And right now, they’re at an all time low of just $13. If you aren’t familiar, these allow you to sip directly from basically any source of fresh water you find in nature. Hopefully you never need one, but if you like to spend time outdoors, it’s worth keeping one in your bag.


ExOfficio underwear are not only one of your favorite underwear by an incredible margin, they’re also a Bestseller. While they had their own 25% off sale on their site, right now on Amazon, you stock up with a BOGO 50% off sale (shipped and sold by Amazon directly). Some styles and colors are cheaper on Amazon and some aren’t, so it may take some comparing to get the best deal.

Whether you’re shopping for your kid or just getting into adult coloring books, Amazon’s deeply discounting Crayola art supplies in today’s Gold Box.

Unfortunately, there aren’t actually any adult coloring books included in the sale, but there are some markers and colored pencils designed just for them.

You’ll also find chalk, finger paint, Silly Putty and several class packs that you could donate to your local school, since they almost definitely don’t have the budget for them. For all of the available deals, be sure to head over to Amazon today.


Nintendo Switch Carry-All Case, $13 with code X2IT5EYV

Update: Sold out

If you’re fortunate enough to own a Nintendo Switch, you’d damn well better take good care of it. This hardside carrying case includes a clever screen protector that also holds up to eight game cartridges, plus an extra mesh pocket for your other accessories.


The diving simulator Abzu is more of a zen experience than actual game, but if you just want to relax on your couch and ride some fish after a hard day at work, you can dive on in for $15 on PS4 or Xbox One, an all-time low.


Razer’s Kraken Pro is a popular entry-level gaming headset for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and while it lacks surround sound, it’s very comfortable, and at an all-time low $33, very affordable too. Unfortunately, that price is only available on cornea-burning green.


If your board game collection is gathering dust, it’s time to freshen up your options with Amazon’s Buy Two, Get One Free sale.

Over 30 options are available (as of now, some will likely sell out), including popular titles like Munchkin and Tokaido, Carcassonne, and Ticket To Ride Europe (which is far superior to the North American version, for what it’s worth), plus expansions for games you might already own like Catan. Just add three games to your cartshipped and sold by Amazon.com—and you should see the cheapest one for free at checkout.
