Top Tech Deals
While not nearly as enticing as their Prime Day discounts, Amazon’s back-to-school price drops on their Kindle, Fire, and Echo devices are solid deals if you’re in the market.
And finally, Amazon’s ultra-affordable Fire 7 tablet is $10 off, but you should probably opt for the Fire HD 8 for just $20 more. That gets you a better screen, 50% more battery life, twice the storage, and stereo speakers.
It’s 2017, and your headphones don’t need wires anymore. Luckily, Amazon’s offering up Sony’s popular and well-reviewed XB950B1 Bluetooth over-ears for $98, or about $100 less than usual. This particular set of cans includes an extra bass mode that you can turn on or off, and even a smartphone app that you can use to change your audio settings on the fly.
If the power at your house can be a little spotty, this $45 APC backup UPS is designed specifically to keep your modem and router running on battery power, so you’ll never lose touch with the world.
You know those cool 360 videos you’ve seen on YouTube, or even in a VR headset? All you need to make your own is the Samsung Gear 360, and it can be yours for an all-time low $100 today.
Even if you don’t have access to a helicopter or speed boat to capture truly jaw-dropping video, you could easily plop this thing into the middle of a party or get-together, and relive the whole thing in 360 degrees later. I wish I’d had one for my wedding.
Best Buy’s running a 50 hour sale on tons of TVs, Apple products, speaker systems, and a lot more this weekend. Some of our top picks are included in the list of deals at the bottom of this post, but head over to Best Buy to check out the entire sale.
If the bottom of your bag looks like a Radioshack going out of business sale, this $8 travel case from AmazonBasics can keep your memory cards, battery packs, charging cables, and other small electronics organized.
Anker’s SoundCore blew away the competition to take the title of your favorite affordable Bluetooth speaker, and today, you can pick one up for $27 with code ALBCXN3Y. That’s a couple bucks more than it was on Prime Day, but otherwise one of the best prices we’ve seen.
For about $7 more though, you can opt for the upgraded water-resistant version instead. In my experience, they sound nearly identical, and they both sport the same incredible battery life, so you can choose solely based on your need for water resistance.
VPNs are in the news these days, and with good reason. So if you’re curious to sign up and start protecting your browsing history and personal data (or, you know, getting around websites’ geoblocks), NordVPN charges less per month than a typical trip to Starbucks.
NordVPN has long been one of the most popular and reliable VPN providers out there, and if you sign up for a one-year membership, promo code VIP70 will drop your annual price from $69 to $48. If you’re sure you want to commit, use this link instead to get a special two year plan for $79 with code 2YSpecial2017. Lifehacker has recommended Nord in some previous guides, but if you have any firsthand experience with the service, sound off in the comments!

Top Gaming Deals
I probably wouldn’t expect Nintendo-like supply shortages, but if you want to be absolutely sure to get an Xbox One X at launch, preorders are live now.
The Xbox One S is already pretty affordable at $249, but today, that’ll also start your game collection off with four downloadable titles. After you purchase the console from Amazon, you’ll receive an email with instructions to download Ghost Recon Wildlands - Gold edition, Forza Motorsport 6, Halo 5, and Recore. That ought to keep you entertained for awhile.
It’s peak lawn game season, and you can save on cornhole sets, ladder toss, giant Jenga sets, a beer pong tablet, and more.
