Anker PowerCore Fusion (White), $24 with code KINJAFBG

Update: The white model is completely sold out, but the black model is available for a couple bucks more, without a code.

The most versatile member of Anker’s insanely popular PowerCore battery pack family pulls double duty as a USB wall charger, and you can save 20% on the new white model with promo code KINJAFBG.

I’ve owned the Fusion since it launched earlier this year, and it’s an indispensable part of my bag. Now, rather than traveling with a wall charger, a battery pack, and a microUSB cable to recharge said battery, all I need is the Fusion and my Apple charging cables. You can read all of my impressions here, and then head over to Amazon to get yours for $24.

This is the first deal Anker’s ever offered on the white Fusion, and our new Facebook Community group had exclusive early access yesterday. Be sure to join the group with connect to fellow deal hunters, and to get early access to future exclusives.


Whether you spend a lot of time camping, or just want to be prepared for the coming apocalypse an extended power outage, this 12W solar panel has an 8,000mAh battery built right in, so you can set it up during the day, and recharge your phone at night.


It’s kind of incredible how affordable Bluetooth speakers have gotten. This one from Aukey is just $13 right now with code AUKEYSP4. It’s not super loud, and the sound quality is most likely just adequate, but it’s shockproof and IPX6 water resistant, so you can take it to the beach, to the pool, or even into the shower.


Sound bars are all the rage right now, but if you want to build a home theater system piecemeal, like in the olden days, Amazon’s running a great deal today on JBL Arena audio gear.

Today only, you can get a JBL Arena S10 subwoofer for $140, and/or a pair of bookshelf speakers for $100. I know Amazon MSRP prices are frequently misleading, but in this case, you can take them to the bank. The sub really does usually sell for $300, and the speakers almost always cost $200, so we’re talking about some serious savings here.


With its incredibly durable construction and lifetime warranty, Anker’s PowerLine II Dura might be the last Lightning cable you ever have to buy. For a limited time, you can get the 10' model (white and black only) for just $13, or about $2 less than usual, and about $.25 less than the 6' one. I have one of these running behind my couch for a leisurely charging experience - five stars would recommend.


Inateck 45W USB-C Charger, $25 with code GT2ZZVWT

There aren’t a whole lot of USB-C chargers out there that can output enough juice to charge a MacBook at full speed, but this Inateck wall charger can handle it, and then some.

Its single USB-C port can push out 45W of power, which is squarely between the 12" MacBook’s 29W and the 13" MacBook Pro’s 61W, and enough to power the Nintendo Switch in dock mode, according to reviewers. The best part? It’s only $25 with code GT2ZZVWT (complete with a USB-C cable), compared to the $69 Apple charges for a 61W power supply.


APC 7-Outlet Surge Protector, $7 after $3 coupon

APC’s SurgeArrest is your favorite surge protector, and this compact 7-outlet model is just $7 on Amazon today after you clip the $3 coupon on the page. There’s even one outlet offset from the rest to accommodate a bulky power supply.


Refurb Amazon Fire HD 10, $120

Amazon appears to have killed off the Fire HD 10, which is a shame, because it was a really solid full-sized tablet for the money. Luckily, you still have a chance to get one as Amazon is clearing out refurbs for just $120 today. That’s $80 less than the usual refurb price, and $110 less than what Amazon used to charge for new ones.


If you’re still listening to your TV through its built-in speakers, stop what you’re doing and check out this Samsung sound bar, marked down to an all-time low $198. With a wireless subwoofer and seamless HDMI audio, it’ll be a massive aural upgrade for your home theater.


If you have an old hard drive or SSD lying around, or you just want to build your own external drive from scratch, this $7, 2.5" enclosure is one of the most affordable we’ve ever seen with UASP support, which allows for faster data transfer speeds when using an SSD.


The best all-around SSD for most people is down to $150 for 500GB, nearly $30 less than Amazon’s current price. It’d obviously be a great upgrade over a spinning hard drive for your computer, but you could also stick it in that aforementioned enclosure to turn it into a super-speedy external drive.


If you’re in need of an extra-long USB-C cable to charge your phone or laptop while you lounge on the couch, the reader-favorite Anker PowerLine cable is down to $10 for 10', an all-time low.


You don’t need to sell a kidney to afford noise-cancelling Bluetooth headphones; these 4 star-rated Cowin E-7s are just $38 right now, or $32 off with promo code 42YFK63R.

They might not have the brand recognition of Sony or Bose, but these headphones pack in 30 hours of battery life, the ability to use them in wired mode if the battery dies, and yes, active noise cancellation that reviewers say works really well.


1 Year NordVPN, $48 with code VIP70 | 2 Year Plan, $72 with code 2YSpecial2017

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 Home Deals

Willow & Everett makes some of the top-selling tea accessories on Amazon, and this glass tea infuser is no different. Keep your tea warm, or make your own in the microwave (don’t tell the Brits I said that), for just $20, today only.

This infuser features its own removable strainer, which allows you to heat water in the microwave and add tea leaves right in, skipping the step of boiling. It even comes with a custom-fit cozy to keep the heat in. It’s perfect for brewing larger batches of tea, or showcasing your favorite flowering tea varieties.


GORUCK’s military-inspired GR1 dominated our Co-Op for the best everyday backpack, and they’re rewarding our readers with an extremely rare 15% discount with promo code KINJAGORUCK15.

Now, even with the code, this is still a $250 backpack. I’m not blind to the fact that that’s a lot of money. But every GR1 is hand-built over the course of four hours in the USA, is covered by a lifetime warranty, and by basically all accounts is just incredibly well-made. There’s a very real chance that this will be the last backpack you ever have to buy.

Own one? Let us know what you think in the comments.


Soylent, clip coupon for 30% off

Grabbing breakfast or lunch with coworkers can be a great way to break up the day, but more often than not you’ll just wallow in your own indecision before ordering a bad $17 sandwich.

Break the cycle with Soylent, a nutritionally complete meal replacement shake that now comes in six flavors (Coffiest is good!). Clip the coupon to save 30% off the 12-pack of your choice.

The original flavor also comes in powdered form now, which is also available with the aforementioned coupon.


Gonex Expandable Packing Cubes, $15 with code 468XKDLT

You already know that packing cubes can make traveling slightly less terrible (though they won’t stop United from beating your ass), but Gonex’s take on the product category includes a second zipper and extra material, allowing them to expand while you’re packing, and compress when it’s time to stuff everything in to your carry-on. For a limited time, get a set of three in the color of your choice for $15 with promo code 468XKDLT.


Preassembled Sit-Stand Desk Riser, $134 with code JA6YHFZQ

So you want to try a standing desk, but you’re not ready to commit to it for eight hours a day...what do you do? You buy this monitor riser for $134 with code JA6YHFZQ, the best price we’ve ever seen on one of these.

This riser arrives fully assembled, and just sits on top of your existing desk. Put your monitor(s) on the top shelf, your keyboard and mouse on the bottom, and use its integrated spring system to raise the entire setup from a sitting to standing position within seconds. I own a very similar product from Varidesk (which was much more expensive, by the way), and I absolutely love it.


Miniature LED flashlights are so cheap and ubiquitous now, there’s no excuse not to have one tucked away in every glove box and every room of your house. Get four zoomable lights from OxyLED for just $14 today.

Just note that you’ll need an 18650 battery, or three AAAs to run them.


Aukey 300W Inverter, $18 with code AUKEYPA7 | 500W, $23 with code AUKEYPA8

Everyone should keep an inverter in their glove box for powering laptops and other electronics in the car, and you’ve got two discounted options to choose from today, depending on how much power you need.


Rubbermaid’s microwave, freezer, and dishwasher safe Brilliance food storage containers are the perfect home for your leftovers, and even feature sealable vents for splatter-proof microwaving. At $11, the 6-piece (three containers, and three lids) starter set has never been cheaper.


Yi Home Camera, $29 with code 4OQZ2K88

Yi, manufacturer of your favorite affordable action cam, also makes a home IP security camera, and you can pick it up for just $29 today with promo code 4OQZ2K88, the best deal we’ve ever seen.

The Yi Home Camera includes all the basic features you’d expect, including two-way audio, automatic activity alerts to your phone, and remote monitoring. And unlike other companies that rely on cloud storage and monthly fees, the Yi stores your files on an onboard microSD card, no membership required.


With this set of five OXO Good Grips Pop Containers, the days of snacks going stale are no more. These hardly ever go on sale, and $42 is within a couple bucks of the best price Amazon’s ever listed. I have this set, and actually use them for pasta and grains, rather than snacks.


If you have any inkling that you might want a Costco membership, there’s never been a better time to join. For a limited time, Groupon’s offering Gold Star memberships for their standard price of $60, but throwing in a $20 Costco gift card, plus coupons for free paper towels, flavored water, and a pizza, and some other bonuses like savings on Costco travel vacations and an online order discount code. If you use them all, that package is worth over $200.


Foldable Trunk Organizer, $22 with code MCTRUNKS

What’s that noise the car’s making? It’s all the crap rolling around in your trunk. This $22 pop-up organizer will keep everything in its place, and it even comes with a free bonus car cooler, as well as a reflective warning triangle for roadside emergencies.


You probably didn’t wake up today planning to buy a laminator. I doubt you have a stack of papers sitting on your desk waiting to be laminated. But even so, I’m here to tell you that today’s the day you should buy a laminator.

Advertisement

While supplies last, Amazon’s selling the AmazonBasics Thermal Laminator for $18, an all-time low. This thing is sized to laminate standard 8.5 x 11" pieces of paper (just like the ones that come out of your printer at home!), in addition to smaller things like letters and business cards, and it warms up in just four minutes. You might not use it today. You might not use it this year. But there will come a day that you suddenly need to make a piece of paper waterproof for some reason, and on that day, you’ll be glad you made this impulse purchase.

Top Lifestyle Deals

The Target Beauty Box comes out once a month and usually sells out quicker than you’d like. If you hurry, you can pick up six samples of some really impressive beauty goods for only $7.

This month’s includes:


Aveeno Sample Box, $8 with $8 credit

You probably spent way too much time in the sun this summer (I know my shoulders are begging for some moisture). This $8 Aveeno sample box can not only cure the summer flakiness that comes with being outside, you also get an $8 credit towards a bunch of other Aveeno products too. It’s basically a free trip to soft skin.


The last few weeks have seen several sales on TriggerPoint’s popular foam rollers, and now, you can save on their 5" massage ball as well. $20 is the best price Amazon’s listed since April.


Amazon’s back at it again with another sample box deal. This time around, $8 gets you eight or more protein products from Optimum Nutrition, plus an $8 credit on your next eligible protein purchase from Amazon. If you were going to buy any of these products anyway, then this is a no-brainer.


There must be something in the air, because J.Crew Factory has had major discounts lately. Use the code EXTRA and take an extra 30% off all clearance items, which is insane seeing as practically everything is already marked down under $100. Maybe hold off on cleaning out your closet until after this sale is over.


In case you missed it during the Prime Day chaos, ExOfficio’s insanely popular sweat-wicking men’s underwear is still on sale for $12-$15, in multiple sizes and colors. It’s extremely rare for Amazon to have this many options in stock, let alone at a discount, so don’t miss your chance to stock up.


While not quite as small as some of our favorite minimalist wallets, the new Swift Wallet is well-built and has a ton of features, and you can get it for about $70 by preordering.

First, let’s talk cards. The Swift Wallet features four RFID-protected card slots (each of which can hold about three cards comfortably, an exterior coin/card pocket that’s purposely not RFID-protected for contactless payment cards, and a few small interior pockets for business cards.

The Swift’s claim to fame though is its unique cash slot. Your bills sit behind the card holders on either side of the wallet’s interior, meaning you can swipe a thumb up the middle of the wallet to slide bills out with ease.

I know Kickstarter projects can occasionally go pear-shaped, but the team behind Swift has successfully delivered on three previous wallet Kickstarters, and they sent me a demo unit to check out as well, so I don’t think you have much to worry about here.


Zappos is basically a one-stop shoe destination already, but right now, they’re having an actual sale, something they haven’t done in years. Grab discounted shoes from Cole Haan, Brooks, Nike, Stuart Weitzman, Frye, and more for men and women. And, if you’re part of their rewards program, get 3x the points on the over 40,000 items on sale.


If you’ve never checked out Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale, what are you even doing on Kinja Deals? The retailer puts thousands of fall and winter styles, plus Nordstrom Beauty Exclusives, on sale way before they go into the stores. Once the sale is over, you’ll only be able to get them for full price, so you’d better get on it. The sale lasts until August 6th.

Top Media Deals

Want to jog your memory about the Jason Bourne series? The Ultimate Collection Blu-ray is down to an all-time low $32 today on Amazon, which gets you three great films, a disc full of special features, and also Jason Bourne and The Bourne Legacy spin-off.


Star Trek: Beyond was actually pretty good—well, at least better than Into Darkness—and it’s definitely worth $8 on Blu-ray.

Top Gaming Deals

Here’s a solid wubba lubba dub-deal on the Rick and Morty board game. $25 is the lowest price Amazon’s ever offered, so clear out some space in your game cabinet.



Just a day after releasing an ebook bundle for aspiring game developers, Humble just unveiled a bundle with the software you need to actually start creating games yourself.

The bundle includes a number of GameMaker: Studio modules (Studio Pro, HTML5, iOS, Android, and Windows), which cost anywhere from $150 to $800 each at retail, plus several games that include source code or UWP modules for you to tear apart, modify, and learn from. As always, you can pay what you want, but options are spread across three different price tiers, the most expensive of which unlocks at $15.


The newest Humble Bundle doesn’t have any video games in it; but it does have books that’ll teach you how to make them. Specifically, 19 books focused on Unity and Unreal Engine development. As usual, they’re split among three different price tiers, and you can get them all for as little as $15.


PS4 Pro, $360 with code PCOLLEGE10

PS4 Pro deals have been few and far between, but right now, you can pick up a 1TB PS4 Pro for $360 with promo code PCOLLEGE10.


Splatoon 2, $48 for Prime members. Discount shown at checkout.

Splatoon 2 is out for the Nintendo Switch, and it’s even better than the original. If you haven’t picked up a copy yet, Prime members can still save 20% on a physical copy, which brings it down to $48 (discount shown at checkout). If you’ve finished Breath of the Wild and are getting bored of Mario Kart, this is the next Switch game you should buy.
