Head over to our main post for more deals, and follow us on Twitter and Facebook to never miss a chance to save. You can also join our Kinja Deals Community Facebook group to connect with your fellow deal hunters.
#1: Yankee Candles
Everyone has fond memories of smelling the Yankee Candle store from halfway down the shopping mall’s hallways. It’s a rite of passage to attempt to walk by without getting a headache. But their candles really are great, and with this one-day sale on Amazon, you can have those scents in your home for even less. Choose autumnal scents, or classic candles smells, but this deals will cool off at the end of the day.
#2: $30 Off Kindles
Prime exclusive Kindle discounts come around fairly often, but today’s $30 discounts are notable in that they’re available to all Amazon shoppers.
The Kindle, Kindle Paperwhite, and Kindle Voyage are all included in the sale. Most readers will probably want to get the Paperwhite for $90, since the $50 Kindle has a lower resolution screen without a backlight. But if you’ve got the money to spare, the pressure-sensitive bezels and ambient light sensor on the Voyage do make for a superior reading experience.
To give you some context for these deals, since the holidays are on the horizon, $30 is about as big a discount as you’re likely to see on the Kindle and the Paperwhite; that’s what Amazon offered on Prime Day this year. The Voyage, however, has been discounted as much as $5o in the past, on rare occasions.
Update: You can also save an extra $35 on the Voyage by buying refurbished.
#3: Thermos Gold Box
This Amazon Gold Box is ostensibly meant as a back-to-school Thermos sale, but several items in there could appeal to adults who want to pack lunch for work.
Inside, you’ll also find water bottles, food jars, steel koozies, and even a massive 40 oz. double walled container with a lid that doubles as a serving cup. A few notable deals are listed below, but head over to Amazon to see them all.
Just note that like all Gold Box deals, these prices are only available today, or until sold out.
#4: Super-Cheap Smart Switches
Smart outlet switches have become the atomic unit of smart home gadgetry, and you can get two Alexa-compatible switches (with energy monitoring!) for just $13 each today with promo code 855XJ38T.
#5: Up to 40% Off Kindle Unlimited
Kindle Unlimited is basically Netflix for ebooks and audiobooks, and Amazon’s offering a very rare discount on the service today. You’ll save 33% off the $10/month regular price when you buy one year, or 40% when you purchase two. If you love to read, this should pay for itself, and it would also make a great holiday gift for the bookworm in your life.
#6: A $7 Salt and Pepper Grinder
Freshly ground pepper tastes about 100 times better than the pre-ground stuff. This electric pepper grinder takes away the elbow grease from grinding your own.
It’s adjustable so you can set the fineness and refill with different spice combinations if you prefer. It’s just $7 today, matching it’s lowest price ever.
#7: 3DS XL - SNES EDition
Nintendo’s coming out with a new SNES-themed New 3DS XL on November 27, and if you order it from Amazon, you’ll get a free download of Super Mario Kart, the kart racing game that started it all. Given Nintendo’s track record, this will almost certainly sell out quickly.
#8: Photos From A Time Long Forgotten
Donald Trump has been president since before any of us were born, but did you know that a man named Barack Obama used to hold the office? Not everyone agreed with all of his ideas, but he didn’t really tweet or start fights, and most people didn’t tend to think about him several times per hour. Historians tell us that the populace, as a result, had a far lower baseline level of stress.
Fortunately, there exists a photographic record of this period in history, and it’s being released as a 12" x 10" hardcover book highlighting the work of Pete Souza, the official White House photographer of the time. It comes out November 7 with an MSRP of $50, but you can preorder it from Amazon today for $29. Plus, if it drops any lower prior to release (it’s had several price drops already), you’ll automatically get the best price.
#9: Bamboo Mattress Covers
You don’t necessarily need to buy a new mattress to get a better night’s sleep: Sometimes, a mattress pad will do, and the one on sale in today’s Amazon Gold Box is here to help.
Unlike most mattress pads, these are stuffed with Revoloft synthetic fill, which should feel a lot like down, but without the associated allergies and poking feathers. They also feature a hypoallergenic bamboo cover. Prices range from just $67-89 today, depending on the size, but just note that this is a Gold Box deal, meaning this price is only available today, so don’t sleep on it.
#10: Cloud Computing Ebooks
For better or worse, our lives exist largely in the cloud these days, and that shows no signs of changing. So if you want to understand how it works, and maybe even find gainful employment managing those massive server racks, Humble’s latest book bundle is here to help.
Pay what you want to download DRM-free ebooks that teach you about Azure, AWS, and more. You can get get all 16 titles for as little as $15, or fewer books at two lower price tiers.
Head over here for the rest of Monday’s best deals.
