Top Deals

We’ve all had to throw away leftovers or cuts of meat and cheese that spent a little too much time in the fridge or freezer, but vacuum sealing your foods can keep them safe from freezer burn pretty much indefinitely, and dramatically extend their shelf life everywhere else.

It sounds like an expensive proposition, but today, Amazon’s selling this well-reviewed FoodSaver FM2435 starter kit for $91, or about $45 less than usual. There are cheaper FoodSaver models out there, but the 2435 justifies its cost with a retractable vacuum sealing hose, allowing it to vacuum seal specially designed zipper bags, in addition to the usual heat-seal bags.

Of course you can use this to store meats in the freezer for a long time, but it can also keep cheese from molding, lettuce from wilting, or cookies from going stale, just to name a few examples. Think about how much food you throw away, and you’ll get a sense of just how quickly this purchase could pay for itself. Just note that today’s price is part of an Amazon Gold Box deal, meaning it’s only available today, or until sold out.

Amazon just refreshed its Fire TV Stick with a faster processor, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and most importantly, a voice remote that can now summon Amazon’s excellent Alexa voice assistant in all her glory, in addition to searching for content and apps on your TV.


The Stick ships on October 20 for $40, the same price as the old model without a voice remote. But if you preorder, you’ll also get two months of Hulu, a month of Sling TV (both for new accounts only), and a $10 Amazon Instant video credit to spend on whatever movies or TV shows you choose.

The Air Hogs Millennium Falcon quadcopter was an amazing toy for Star Wars fans when it debuted a year ago for $110. Now, you can get it for just $50, an all-time low.

The Falcon is gyro-stabilized for easy flying, and can be controlled from up to 200 feet away, no “special modifications” required.

Aukey Slim Profile USB Car Charger, $8 with code A2CHARGE

Your favorite USB car charger just happens to be the smallest one you can buy, and you can grab it on Amazon for $8 today with code A2CHARGE (black) or A3CHARGE (white). We’ve seen it go as low as $6 on a few occasions, but this is the best deal we’ve seen in about a year, if it’s been on your wish list.

Note: Make sure you’re buying from Aukey’s Amazon listing, not the one sold by Amazon directly.

Refurb Dyson V6 Absolute, $310 | Photo via Gizmodo AU

The Dyson V6 Absolute (as in, absolutely cord-free) is ideal for cleaning rugs, hardwood floors, cars, ceilings, shelves...pretty much anything really, and you can get a refurb for $310 on Amazon today, or $120 less than buying it new. My boss was given one as a warranty replacement when his Dyson DC56 died, and he seems to love it.

Whether you’re looking to start a podcast, or just want your Skype calls to sound better, the Blue Yeti is one of the most popular mid-range USB microphones you can buy.

For a limited time, Newegg will sell you the murdered-out Blackout Edition for $110, and throw in a $40 gift card for good measure. For the sake of comparison, that’s actually a few bucks cheaper than Amazon’s current list price, without a gift card.


Update: To get the deal, you’ll need to scroll down to the bottom of the product page, and purchase it from the Adorama listing. Once you do that, you should see the gift card in your cart.

Raising a kid isn’t cheap, but Amazon’s throwing parents a lifeline right now with 20% off nearly 500 baby food subscriptions, and over 40 varieties of diapers, for Prime members only.


These promotions differ from most Subscribe & Save coupons in that they apply to your subscription in perpetuity as long as it’s active, rather than just the first deliveriy. Even if you don’t have any kids yourself, be sure to these along to your friends and family members who could take advantage.

Ready to get fit? For a limited time, Amazon’s taking an extra 15% off a huge array of EAS protein products. Inside, you’ll find dozens of powders, shakes, bars, and more in a variety of flavors and formulas. Just note that you have to use Amazon Subscribe & Save to get the discount, and you won’t see the final price until checkout.

$2 off: Tide Detergent | Tide PODS - Discount shown at checkout

Laundry detergent is one of those things you need to buy anyway, so you might as well stock up and save. For a limited time, Amazon’s taking $2 off various Tide PODS and Tide detergent products. Why aren’t they just combined into a single coupon offering? Beats me, but just click both links to see all of your options, and remember that you won’t see your discount until checkout.

Inateck Aluminum USB/Ethernet Hub, $17 with code O3X5TVQ2

Today’s ultra-thin laptops have largely dispatched with ethernet ports, and possibly don’t have as many USB ports as you’d like. Luckily, this attractive and affordable hub will give you both whenever you need them.

USB-C to MicroUSB Adapter [2-Pack], $6 with code DEZU2DFW

Obviously, you won’t enjoy the full charging speeds and data throughput capabilities of USB-C with these microUSB adapters, but they’re still a cheap and easy way to convert your older cables for use with newer devices. Plus, they include key rings, so you can always have one handy if you need to borrow a friend’s charging cable.

Pretty soon, it’ll be dark at 5, freezing all day long, and you’ll have no motivation to schlep to the gym. But this resistance band set from AmazonBasics make it easy to get a workout in any room of your house, and at $8, it’s never been cheaper.

Update: Sold out

Lowepro’s Flipside 300 DSLR backpack is a top choice for photographers, as evidenced by its stellar 4.5 star review average, and Amazon’s marked it down to an all-time low $49 today. It generally sells in the $70-$80 range, so I’d snap this up while you can.

USB-C to MicroUSB Adapter [2-Pack], $6 with code DEZU2DFW

Obviously, you won’t enjoy the full charging speeds and data throughput capabilities of USB-C with these microUSB cable adapters, but they’re still a cheap and easy way to convert your older cables for use with newer devices. Plus, they include key rings, so you can always have one handy if you need to borrow a friend’s charging cable.

Suaoki Dual 25W Solar Charger, $35 with code AXXFI2ZA

Whether you spend a lot of time outdoors, or just want to be prepared for extended power outages, $35 is the best prices we’ve ever seen on a 25W USB solar charger. It’s not enough to get you to Mars, but it’ll at least charge a couple of phones at the same time.

If you somehow haven’t read Malala Yousafzai’s memoir yet, you can pick up an Audiobook version on Amazon today for just $4.

When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education.

On Tuesday, October 9, 2012, when she was fifteen, she almost paid the ultimate price. She was shot in the head at point-blank range while riding the bus home from school, and few expected her to survive.

Instead, Malala’s miraculous recovery has taken her on an extraordinary journey from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York. At sixteen, she has become a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest nominee ever for the Nobel Peace Prize.

I am Malala is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism, of the fight for girls’ education, of a father who, himself a school owner, championed and encouraged his daughter to write and attend school, and of brave parents who have a fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons.

I am Malala will make you believe in the power of one person’s voice to inspire change in the world.

4-Pack Packing Cubes, $17 with code AMAZTOUR

Packing cubes can make organizing clothes and toiletries for your next trip a little less hellish, and this highly-rated set of four is only $17 today, complete with a bonus dirty laundry bag.

Tasbel TSA Lock, $5 with code IOPFUAA6

Here’s a TSA luggage lock for $5. I really don’t have anything else to add.

Escort’s 4.4 star rated Passport 9500ix Radar/Laser Detector is Amazon’s top-seller in the category, partially thanks to its built-in GPS and accompanying red light camera database. While we don’t condone speeding or driving recklessly, if you have been known to drive with a lead foot, this could pay for itself in the long run.


Today’s $280 deal is the best price Amazon’s ever offered, and one of the first times it’s ever dipped below $300. Just don’t use it in Virginia or DC.

Cuisinart’s 14" pizza pan boasts a 4.7 star review average from nearly 500 satisfied chefs, and Amazon’s marked it down to an all-time low $11 today. If you don’t already own something like this, it’s just one of those pans that should be in every kitchen.

Lane Bryant, with their designer collaborations involving Christian Siriano and Melissa McCarthy, have dominated the plus size fashion game. And right now, you can grab a whole new wardrobe’s worth of clothing during Lane Bryant’s BOGO 75% off sale. This includes everything from the aforementioned designer collabs to all new arrivals.

You guys, it’s finally here. A USB battery pack with an actual, bona fide AC power outlet built in.


Obviously, it’s larger and more expensive than USB-only battery packs with a similar capacity, but RAVPower’s new 27,000mAh portable charger still only weighs 1.9 pounds, and can charge your laptop via a 100W AC outlet. That’s an amazing convenience for long trips, conferences, or anywhere else that power is at a premium. And of course, you also get a pair of 2.4A USB ports, and a USB-C port as well.

At $120 (with code CG2U3Q38), you’ll certainly be paying a premium for that power outlet, but if you’ve been waiting for a product like this for years, it’ll be money well spent.

Anker SoundCore Sport XL, $48 with code ANKSPORT

Anker’s SoundCore line of Bluetooth speakers dominated our recent Kinja Co-Op, but the largest member of the family just got its biggest discount ever.

The Anker SoundCore Sport XL features the same one-meter waterproofing of the original SoundCore Sport, plus added dust resistance, making it even more rugged. And since it’s the “XL” version, it improves upon the original Sport with dual 8W drivers (vs. a single 3W driver), 15 hours of battery life (vs. 10), 66' wireless range (vs. 33') and a USB power output to charge your phone from anywhere. Simply put, it seems like a perfect speaker for your summer barbecues, hikes, and beach trips.


The SoundCore Sport XL debuted just a few months ago at $60, but while supplies last, you can save $12 with promo code ANKSPORT.

You might not have an immediate need for a pack of multicolored Sharpies, but they’re great to keep stocked in your home office, and Amazon’s currently selling a 24 pack of fine points for only $9 today, an all-time low.

Amazon now produces its own line of iPhone cases for the iPhone 7, 7 Plus, and 5/5s/SE, and if you buy any one of them today, you’ll get a $5 Kindle eBook credit emailed to you automatically once it ships.


Most cases are priced at $10 or less, and definitely skew towards minimalist than bulky and ultra-protective. A few options are listed below, but click this link to see them all.

Aukey Wi-Fi Switch, $15 with code AUKWIFI2

Smart outlet switches have exploded in popularity in the years since Belkin released the original WeMo switch, and we’ve spotted a great deal on Aukey’s version today.


Functionally, the Aukey Wi-Fi switch is basically what you’d expect. You plug it into a standard AC outlet, and use a smartphone cut or enable the power to essentially any appliance. The main downside is that you can’t control the Aukey switch with IFTTT (WeMo), Alexa (TP-Link Smart Plug), or Siri (Koogeek), but it does include two USB charging ports, which is a nice little bonus for the price.

Every modem rental fee you pay to your ISP is padding for their bottom line, and a total rip-off for you. Fortunately, you can buy your own modem for a relatively small upfront cost, and knock a few bucks off your monthly bill.

There used to be a general consensus that Motorola’s SB6141 was the best modem for most cable internet subscribers, but the newer SB6183 is supports double the maximum download speeds (686mbps), which is important for future-proofing purposes, if nothing else. If you don’t mind buying a refurb, $55 is a match for the best price we’ve ever seen.

Mpow Bluetooth 4.1 Speaker System, $13 with code BOHQXOVD

If you have any old speaker systems lying around your house, you can bring them into this decade with Mpow’s new $13 Bluetooth receiver. Much like the Chromecast Audio, this little puck plugs into a speaker system via a 3.5mm cable, and lets you stream to it wirelessly from your phone. Just use promo code BOHQXOVD at checkout to get the discount.

Magicfly TENS Massager, $20 with code 99U6MAEQ

TENS (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) massagers seem a bit like pseudoscience, but every time we post a deal on this thing, we hear nothing but rave reviews. In fact, I use one occasionally after exercising, and I’m pretty sure it helps reduce muscle pain. At the very least, it feels cool.

Anker’s celebrating its fifth birthday with 20 deals on its most popular products, including your favorite battery packs, your favorite charging cables, your favorite Bluetooth earbuds, a popular robotic vacuum, and more.


A few of our favorites are broken out below, but head over to our hub post to see all of the deals.

Timbuk2 Classic Messenger Bag, 30% off the 15 colors on the landing page with code KINJA30, expires 10/2

25 years later, Timbuk2's Classic Messenger Bag remains a staple of many a commute, and with code KINJA30 you can get 30% off all the available colorways right here, resulting in best ever pricing on most.

With ample storage and a waterproof TPU liner, the Classic Messenger will get you and your gear to the classroom, boardroom, gym, or short haul destination in one piece. The padded, easily adjustable shoulder strap features air mesh to reduce your sweating, while a side entry pocket makes getting to your essentials no sweat. Little touches like a key fob, an organizer, and integrated compression straps make it even better.

Here’s a dirty little secret YETI doesn’t want you to know: All of those vacuum-insulated stainless steel cups are basically the exact same thing. So instead of dropping $30 on a Rambler, spend $15 on this Homitt alternative, which includes a handle, a lid, and two stainless steel drinking straws.

URPOWER Portable Garment Steamer, $16 with code S6HA8QWN

Steaming your clothes might not get them as crisp as ironing, but it does a decent enough job in a fraction of the time, and for $16, why not? It’s even small enough to pack away in your suitcase.
