Just when you thought you knew everything there was to know about cable management, the depths of Amazon toss you a surprise. This magnetic cable clip system includes one magnetic base that you can stick anywhere via its included adhesive, and three magnetic clips that you attach to your most-used cables, allowing them to stick to the base effortlessly.
There are surely less expensive cable holders out there—we post deals on them frequently—but the allure of just dropping your cable onto a magnetic base and knowing that it’ll stay put is pretty darn cool.
Tile is the ultimate device for anyone who can’t stop losing their things, and you can get one for about $5 less than usual right now.
If you aren’t familiar, you just slide this thing into your wallet, keep it in your car, stick it in your luggage...anything you frequently misplace, and the Tile app on your phone can ping them over Bluetooth and cause them to beep until you find what you’re looking for. And if your lost item is outside of your phone’s Bluetooth range, it’ll show up on a map automatically any time another Tile user comes into range.
Whether you’re in the market for a new gaming PC, or just want some accessories for your current rig, today’s Amazon Gold Box has you covered.
Beyond the computers though, you’ll find a ton of peripheral and accessory deals, including our readers’ favorite mechanical keyboard (and the one I use every day), gaming headsets, motherboards, tons of flash storage, and more. Some of our favorites are below, but head over to Amazon to browse the entire sale.
iFixit, the people that rip apart brand new electronics
for your amusement to show you how to fix them, makes its own toolkits, and you can get their 64 bit driver kit for $25 right now.
That gets you a driver, a flex extension to reach around tight corners, and a lot of bits to get you into just about any gadget.
Apple’s MacBooks only have two ports these days: USB-C and a headphone jack. And while USB-C is definitely a good thing, the world might not be quite ready to ditch all of our old connectors. Luckily, this $30 dongle can turn one of those USB-C ports into four standard USB ports, an HDMI port, and a USB-C passthrough for power.
With 25W of power, this $34 Bluetooth speaker packs more of a punch than most of its peers, and even sprays that sound in 360 degrees, making it perfect for parties. Just use code L3V7CYO2 at checkout to save $12.
Dropping a spare or old hard drive or SSD into an external enclosure is a great way to breathe new life into it, and it’s even better when that external enclosure is also a 2-port USB hub and a microSD card reader.
Note: The power cable is optional unless you’re plugging high-powered devices into the USB ports, like external hard drives or smartphones.
If you don’t want to watch movies on your tiny phone screen and don’t want to shell out the cash for an iPad, upgrade to a Portable DVD Player for just $45 with promo code USZHHWHI.
Its battery lasts for up to 3 hours and you can plug into your car’s power supply or any normal wall plug. This device normally sells for around $60, so you’re saving money and don’t have to hear your kids bicker on those long road trips.
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 $25 right now on Amazon, the best price we’ve seen since Prime Day.
I’ve owned this thing for over a year, and I feel like I never charge it. If anything, its quoted 24 hours of battery life is a conservative estimate. It also sounds fantastic for a speaker of its size.
TP-Link’s well-reviewed AC3200 router is good enough for just about every home or apartment, and Prime members can get it for an all-time low $120 today. Just make sure you don’t step on it thinking it’s some kind of large bug.
The best camera is the one you always have with you, but that’s much more likely to be your DSLR if you buy this $7 case from AmazonBasics.
Plus, you can also add a spare battery to your cart when you buy the camera, and get it for free.
This model doesn’t shoot in 4K, but it does feature 1080/60, and the footage and photos it takes look fantastic. You can even control it wirelessly with your phone, or transfer your captures over Wi-Fi for instant sharing.
If your action cam needs are considerably more advanced, consider the Yi 4K bundled with a gimbal stabilizer for $350 with promo code V673WQ4G.
You don’t need to pay Apple $160 to enjoy truly wireless earbuds: These SoundPEATS look nearly identical to the AXGIO earbuds that I tried out last year, but with updated Bluetooth tech (4.2 vs. 4.1) and a lower price tag. They’re not as sleek as some other truly wireless headphones on the market like AirPods or the Bragi Dash, but you can’t beat that price.
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 $21.
It’s new iPhone season, and whether you’ve already preordered an 8, are anxiously awaiting the X, or are just sticking with your current phone for another year, some of your favorite Anker accessories are on sale right now, as well as brand new cases from Anker’s Karapax brand.
Magnetic smartphone vent mounts are the sleekest and easiest way to prop up your phone in the car, and you can get two mounts from Aukey for $8 today with code AUKEYHT5. Even if you already have one in your own car (a pretty safe bet!), it’s worth tossing an extra into your luggage to use in rental cars whenever you travel. They also work as makeshift phone stands if you use them at your desk, or on an airplane tray table.
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!

You all know the infomercial this set of pots and pans is from. I can picture the fork scratching the non-stick surface, the burnt sugar sliding off. Amazon is one-upping those late-night demonstrations with this one-day sale. Grab the Red Copper 10-piece ceramic cookware set for just $75, today only.
Several weeks ago, we posted a deal on a notebook that you could erase up to five times by putting it in the microwave. Needless to say, reactions were mixed.
But some of you pointed out that the same company had a new notebook that could be erased basically indefinitely with nothing but a damp cloth, and that model is cheaper than ever today.
The Rocketbook Everlast does carry over the Wave’s smart symbols, a series of seven glyphs on the bottom of each page that you can cross out with a pen. Once you scan the page with Rocketbook’s app, those symbols tell the app where to send the page. Cross out the horseshoe and scan the page with the app, and it’ll automatically upload to, say, Evernote. Draw an X through the star, and it’ll go to Google Drive. You can specify what each of these symbols do in the app, so it’s easy to customize the notebook for your workflow.
The scanning features are important, because the Everlast isn’t meant to keep your notes indefinitely. Once you fill up the 32 pages with a Pilot Frixion pen (one is included), you can just grab a wet cloth, and wipe the whole thing clean to start again.
We’re getting ready to round up the countless and ever-improving ways to make coffee on the go or in the woods, but until LUME, the most important product in that process, the grinder, was literally a hand crank.
LUME is a portable, USB rechargeable, conical ceramic burr coffee grinder that doubles as a flashlight, and there are still preorders available at just $59 as of this writing. Total no-brainer/godsend for coffee drinking travelers and campers.
You’ve listed these AmazonBasics Velvet Suit Hangers as one of your all-time favorite hangers. They lined with velvet to keep slinky shirts from slipping and they’re cheap. Really cheap. Priced at just $18 today for a 50-pack, that’s the lowest price we’ve ever seen outside of some short-lived coupons. This is perfect timing for a closet revamp as you move your fall wardrobe out of storage.
Update: The price was listed incorrectly. The final price with promo code is $29.
This industrial level IR thermometer can read temperatures ranging from -58° F to 1,022° F. But I normally use mine for much simpler things, like to fact check my oven temperature, check for air leaks, or really just play around with. At $18 with promo code NOGBB5RM, it’s well worth it for the entertainment factor alone.
You might associate cold brew coffee with summer, but that’s because you’re conflating it with iced coffee. Iced coffee is a brilliant way to sell people ice for the price of coffee (which is mostly water to begin with). Cold brew on the other hand is a different process that results in less acidity, among other benefits, and you can enjoy it all year round.
Today only on Amazon, three different cold brewers from Willow & Everett are on sale. The one that will look most familiar is this $20 plastic pitcher, which is basically a slightly larger version than the Takeya that our readers have bought thousands of.
The other two look a little nicer, and are made of glass, but more importantly, they have airtight seals that will keep your coffee fresh for weeks. The only real difference is the size, so for just a few bucks more, I’d go with the larger model. Just remember that these prices are only available today, so don’t sleep on them.
This 4-tier greenhouse has a small enough footprint to fit on just about any balcony or patio, and is perfect for urban gardeners looking to grow their own vegetables, herbs, and flowers. This will probably sell out quickly though, so pick one up before they’re all harvested.
Detergent pods are the easiest way to do the laundry, and with Amazon’s $2 coupon, they’re also one of the cheapest. The coupon applies to tons of different pod varieties from Tide and Gain, but just remember that you won’t see the discount until checkout, and that some of the options are only available through Prime Pantry.
Anker makes smart light bulbs now, because of course they do, and today’s your first chance to get them at a discount.
While both bulbs can be dimmed with your smartphone (even if your lamp doesn’t have a dimmer), the tunable bulb can output just about any shade of white, from sunlight-simulating daylight to Edison-style warm white. It sounds like a small thing, but different shades of light can seriously boost your productivity, or help you relax when it’s almost time for bed.
You can control either of these bulbs with your smartphone via the free Eufy Home app, but the real fun is controlling them with your voice via Alexa. Any Alexa-enabled device can do this, but we happen to have an exclusive discount on the Eufy Genie, which is very similar to an Echo Dot, only cheaper. Just use code KINJA000 at checkout to get it for $30.
Shopping for pillows can be a snoozefest but pillows are something that should be replaced every once in a while. If you can’t remember the last time you bought some new ones, Amazon has got you covered today.
At $25 for a 2-pack with promo code CMYD7QKK, they’re a good deal for hypoallergenic, breathable pillows that have the right amount of stuffing for everyone from stomach to side sleepers.
You’ve heard of Automatic’s smart driving assistant, but if $80-$100 is too rich for your blood, this cheap OBD2 dongle connects to your Android device over Bluetooth, and can fulfill many of the same functions using various third party apps.
You won’t need it for a couple more weeks, but you might as well plan ahead to decorate your house for every holiday with just one $40 gadget, the greatest invention to happen to holiday decor in decades.
This waterproof LED projector comes with 12 different themes like spooky Halloween characters, Santa Claus, snowflakes, falling leaves, and Valentine’s Day hearts. You can set the timer and reign in holiday spirit indoors or out.
If you’re like me and didn’t shell out the extra money for temperature-controlled seats last time you bought a car, you can now add those in for just $50 with promo code KY76786E. The Naipo Seat Cushion heats AND cools to keep you comfortable no matter the season.
The cushioned seat can plug in into your car’s power outlet or into any normal wall plug for office or home use. $50 is small price to pay when you could be saying goodbye to back sweat forever.
Kershaw’s popular Leek knife is a great general-purpose fold-out blade, and an absolute steal at $30. That’s within about a couple bucks of the best price Amazon’s ever listed on this 4.7 star-rated knife; just remember to take it out of your pocket before you go to the airport.
A good hammer drill/driver will come in handy for basically every home improvement project you can imagine, and Amazon’s top seller is down to its lowest price of $99 today.
I was in the camp of people who felt like aromatherapy diffusers were glorified Glade plug-ins. And they are to some extent, but the fact you can use natural essential oils to create the scent, rather than whatever Glade uses, is a real game changer. The peppermint and eucalyptus scents can help with migraines and sinus headaches as well help humidify the air during drier winter months.
These all normally sell on Amazon for around $25 but are all under $20 today. Note the different promo codes.
Don’t forget the oils, also discounted today - $13 with promo code NBLISS30.
It might not be something you use on a daily basis, but a good label maker is a nice gadget to keep around, and the popular DYMO LabelManager 160 is back in stock for just $10 today, matching an all-time low.
If you remember the old label makers that literally pressed the letters into a piece of tape, this is a bit more advanced than what you’re picturing. The Dymo LabelManager 160 can print in eight fonts at six sizes, along with clipart and special characters, and you can even preview the entire label on its LCD screen before you print. Every time we post this deal, it sells out quickly, so you’ll want to grab yours quickly.

Foam rollers are great for soothing aching muscles, and this 13" model will only set you back $14 today with code 4CZ8TQKY. I’d say that’s a better use of your money than 5 minutes at a massage parlor.
Flannels are great but for some reason are never priced reasonably enough to warrant a new one (even if the one you have has holes in the elbows). But alas! Uniqlo has them marked down to only $25, both men’s and women’s styles. You don’t need to be a hipster or a lumberjack to wear these, I promise (unless you are one, then cool).
BioLite, maker of our favorite camping stoves and lighting, is back with a FirePit we’ve been psyched about since we saw it in action back in December. Their Kickstarter launched today and is already... on fire.
The BioLite FirePit is easy to transport, minimizes smoke, is see-through for maximum fire viewing, uses wood or charcoal, and doubles as a hibachi grill. The FirePit doesn’t recharge your phone with the power of flames like some of BioLite’s other products (at least not directly, but its battery pack does have a USB charger onboard), but its built-in circulation fan does recharge itself using a solar cover, and can optionally be app-controlled.
Kickstarter preorders include that solar cover for free, but about a third of the units available at the $199 level are already gone, so don’t let this one smolder.
The Action Jacket by Jumper Threads is by no means the first packable jacket, but it is feature-packed, designed with the fact that cell phones exist in mind, and an easy recommendation at Kickstarter preorder prices. Plus they have an awesome logo.
The Action Jacket is water repellant, vented, breathable, packable, reflective, adjustable all over, ultralight, and doesn’t skimp on the pockets. We’ve been wearing one off and on for a few weeks, and if your outerwear arsenal is lacking an analog to this, don’t hesitate.
Amazon is trying to keep you and your shopping habits healthy. Spend $25 on pretty much anything from Amazon.com and get 1 free bottle of featured Amazon Elements vitamins or supplements with code PRIMEVITAMIN.
Note: This promotion is exclusive to Amazon Prime members.
Heating pads are great for soothing sore muscles after a workout, but come winter, their best application is to throw them under your sheets half an hour before bed, so it won’t feel like jumping into a cold pool when you’re ready to go to sleep.
This 12" x 24" pad from Sunbeam is at the low end of its usual price range right now at $30, but an extra $6 coupon makes it a fantastic deal.
Steve Madden somehow makes shoes that look like they should cost triple what they actually do. And right now, Nordstrom Rack is marking down a ton of Steve Madden styles for both men and women. Grab boots, sandals, heels, dress shoes, and more for up to 70% off.
It’s about time you do some cleaning out of your drawers. Get rid of those laundry-day-only undies in favor of something you’ll actually like wearing. Aerie is giving you 8 undies for only $29, no code needed, which is kind of insane seeing as they usually sell them for $12+.
ThinkGeek is helping the nerds in your life get ready for back-to-school. Score up to 80% off of a ton of products and apparel during their Fall Blowout Clearance. There are seriously hundreds of items to choose from, which means every corner of geekdom is covered by this sale.
It’s time to start planning your outdoor adventures, and Backcountry is gonna help you out in the gear department. Take advantage of an extra 20% off select styles. Gear, apparel, shoes, and more are all fair game, which means outfitting for your next outdoor adventure just costs you a whole lot less.
I’m devastated to report that OXA has changed this product’s Amazon description, but for posterity’s sake, here’s what it used to say:
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 less than 1/3 the price of the name brand with promo code VYKDXUWL, so it might be worth checking out if you’re a HAIRY APE.
Another Gizmodo Media Group staff member (who shall remain nameless, but speculate away) bought this awhile back, and reports that it “does the job.”
Dorco’s insane razor discounts continue unabated this week with the Pace Power, just $3 with code KINJA918A. The Pace Power looks like a regular razor handle, but pop a AAA battery in there, and it can lightly vibrate to help lift hairs for an easier shave. It’ll work with any of Dorco’s standard cartridges, but this particular bundle includes a Pace 6 blade to get you started.
Amazon recently launched their Unique Finds section, which contain hand-picked and curated items across a ton of categories, like home goods, gadgets, apparel, and more. And now, Prime Members can grab a discount of 15% or more a select few brands. This month, they’re featuring jewelry brands Slipada and La Regis Jewelry, handboard-maker Slyde, phone accessory company Mengo, and home goods brands Avvio and Willow & Everett.
Amazon’s back at it again with the sample box deals. This time around, $10 gets you 10 or more protein products, plus a $10 credit on your next protein-related purchase from Amazon. If you were going to buy any of these products anyway, then this is a no-brainer.

Amazon’s running a Marvel digital comic sale that’s bigger than any Avengers movie today, with literally thousands of titles marked down to just a few bucks, in most cases. You’ll find everything from the Guardians of the Galaxy to Darth Vader to Deadpool to Captain America in there, and every hero in between, so there’s never been a better time to stock your digital shelves.
The selection is overwhelming (400 Amazon pages, or over 6,000 titles!), so we’ll drop a few safe bets below, but definitely leave your own suggestions in the comments.
If you own a 4K Blu-ray player (or an Xbox One S), you can watch one of the most famous films of all-time at over 4,000 pixels wide. I’m not sure how well E.T.’s the special effects will hold up with that kind of detail, but this price is an all-time low. You also get a regular Blu-ray, a digital copy, and a bunch of bonus features.
Get Out was a lot more than a typical horror movie, so even if you aren’t typically a fan of the genre, you should absolutely add it to your Blu-ray collection for $10. You also get a digital copy, and even an alternate ending.
If you want to land a tech job, but are constantly held back by being a big ol’ dummy, boy do we have a deal for you today.
Humble’s latest ebook bundle includes 15 “For Dummies” books to help you with every aspect of landing a job, from writing your cover letter to learning basic python. As always, the books are split between three different tiers, but you can name your own price.

If you’ve entertained any stray thoughts about buying PlayStation VR, today’s the day you want to do it.
$300 gets you the headset and the PS4 camera (though unlike the last time this deal ran, I don’t think you get any bundled gam
