Today’s Best Tech Deals

Anker’s SoundCore Spirit X headphones are the sportiest member of the SoundBuds family, and are designed with active users in mind. Their ear wings ensure they stay put while you exercise, and an internal hydrophobic coating means your sweat won’t fry them. Hell, you could even swim with them. Their best spec though? 12 hours of battery life, which is basically unheard of in the space.

They normally sell for $40, but you can get a pair for $26 right now, no promo code required. Even if you already have a set of wireless headphones, it never hurts to toss an extra pair in your gym bag or luggage in case you forget them.


Whatever you think of the headphones inside, there’s no denying that Apple’s AirPods charging case is one of the best fidget toys of all time. But if fidget spinners are more your jam than satisfying, tactile clicking, the Zenpod sleeve turns it into an even better way to mindlessly occupy your hands.

For a limited time, we’ve spun up an exclusive deal on the case, just for our readers. Use promo code KINJA20AV at checkout to get the color of your choice for $6 off.


If you want to fix your own phones, tablets, and other small gadgets, iFixit’s Pro Tech Toolkit has everything you need to get started. We’re talking precision screwdrivers, yes, but also suction cups, spudgers, an anti-static wrist strap, non-reactive plastic tweezers, and a lot more, all backed by iFixit’s lifetime warranty.

The kit would normally set you back $65, and while today’s $5 discount isn’t huge, it’s as good a deal as we’ve ever seen.


At $75, Anker’s new Roav Jump Starter Pro isn’t the cheapest car jump starter we’ve seen, but its 800A of peak output mean it can start pretty much any engine, up to 6L for a gas vehicle, or 3L for diesel. If you don’t buy own of these, you’ll probably be kicking yourself somewhere down the road (pun intended) when you’re stranded in your driveway with somewhere to be.

This being an Anker product, you’ll also find two high speed USB charging ports, plus a flashlight that doubles as an SOS strobe. There’s also a compass, because why not? Even if you already own a jump starter, these make amazing gifts. Believe me, your giftee will remember you the first time they’re able to start their car in the morning to get to work on time.


We’ve seen several deals on high capacity microSD cards lately, but Samsung’s EVO is one of the fastest models out there, and its 256GB variant just dropped to $48, a within $3 of an all-time low for the U3-rated card. If you need a ton of storage for Switch games or GoPro footage, this is definitely worth a look.

Want some fun context? This same card was on sale for $100 about 11 months ago, which at the time was an all-time low by $30. My how times have changed.

Today’s Best Home Deals

If you don’t have an Instant Pot yet, it’s time to give in and jump on the bandwagon. It cooks meals incredibly quickly, but it can also double as a slow cooker, and even makes terrific rice.

The 8 qt. model is designed for families, and it’s marked down to the same price as the standard 6 qt. model today. That’s not an all-time low, but it’s about $20-$40 less than the going rate over the last few months.

It comes with everything you need to get started, but you may want to invest in some extra accessories once you learn the ropes.


Our current president might not be known for inexpensive, quality furniture, but that doesn’t mean you should shy away from Wayfair’s President’s Day sale. Rugs, chairs, dining sets, sofas, lighting, patio furniture, and more are included, so you can save some dead presidents while you refurnish your home.


Anova dominates the sales charts, but in many ways (raw heating power, looks, size, software quality), the Joule sous-vide circulator is actually the superior product, and it’s got a rare $35-$40 discount today.

Though the Joule White and the Joule White/Stainless are priced differently, they’re completely identical products save for the stainless steel accents, so I’d buy the cheaper one if it’s still in stock.


Succulents are basically the cats of plants… just not as sad when you have a lot of them. They don’t need a lot of attention to thrive. They’ll need some water and care here and there, but otherwise they’ll get by.

Today’s Gold Box lowers the price on a bunch of them for Valentine’s Day. If you’re in a relationship, succulents trump a bouquet of roses that’ll die in a week. If you’re single, well, they’re nice to look at while you mull over your romantic failures.

And just like true love, this sale won’t last. So… *sigh*


Here’s a stupid little thing that’ll make your life just a little bit easier. Joseph Joseph’s Double Dish is a clever little invention for eating edamame, olives, pistachios, or any other finger foods that leave behind scraps, and it’s just $14 on Amazon right now.

If you haven’t figured it out yet, you just fill the top bowl with the food of your choice, and drop the remains through one of three chutes into the bottom bowl. At the end of the day, it’s still two dishes to clean up, but it takes up less space on your table, it looks cool, and most importantly, you don’t have to stare at those disgusting olive pits during your meal. Today’s price isn’t quite as good as we saw on Black Friday, but other than that, it’s a very solid deal.


Today’s Best Lifestyle Deals

Nike Dri-FIT Men’s Tee | $15 | Amazon | Multiple colors and sizes available, mostly grey and black variants
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Nike Dri-FIT tees are the chameleons of the workout gear ecosystem, equally at home in the weight room, on a run, or in a pickup sports league. If you ever exercise, you literally can’t have enough of these things. So go ahead and sprint over to Amazon to grab as many as you can for $15 before they go out of stock again

Don’t see your size in stock? Don’t sweat it; the deal is available on multiple colors, but the greys and blacks seem to have the most sizes on sale.


Bros, let’s jam. As a group, hygiene is not our strongest suit. We all can do better when it comes to grooming and today’s Amazon sale on skin care kits can help. Pick from 4 bundles, ranging from $19-30. Whether its moisturizing your beard or your face, these sets have you covered.

Today’s Best Media Deals

Even if you aren’t usually into anime, it’s worth giving Cowboy Bebop a try, especially when you can get the entire series for a mere $10. This deal is through Amazon’s digital video storefront, and includes all 26 episodes in HD, which normally sell for $3 each.

Today’s Best Gaming Deals

Azul | $27 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Azul was Board Game Geek’s #1 most played board game last summer, and cracked our readers’ favorite video game list, and you can add it to your own collection for $27 from Amazon. That’s a new all-time low, but you don’t really need much of an excuse to buy this one.

Azul was designed by the world famous, award winning game author Michael Riesling. Azul captures the beautiful aesthetics of Moorish art in a contemporary board game. Players compete as artisans decorating the walls of the royal Palace of Dvora. By carefully drafting the correct Quantity and style of tiles, the most clever of artisans plan ahead to maximize the beauty of their work (not to mention their scores!) while ensuring they wasted no supplies in the process.

Seriously, this game is gorgeous, and just as importantly, it feels great to play.


I don’t care how old your kids you are, there’s something for everyone in Amazon’s one-day Hasbro sale.

On the toy front, the sale includes everything from toddler dolls, to Play-Doh, to Nerf guns, but it’s worth heading over to Amazon to see all of your options.

And the board game selection isn’t bad either. While it definitely emphasizes the classics like Yahtzee, Scrabble, Taboo, and various iterations of Monopoly (Fortnite, anyone?), it also includes Dropmix, which will probably be the best party game you play this year.

Just remember that no matter what you want to buy, these prices will only be available today, or until sold out.

Deals You May Have Missed

One of the best gaming monitors, the ASUS ROG Strix 27” Curved Gaming Monitor, is on sale right now. ROG’s line of gaming monitors are the favorite among pros and this $320 FreeSync could help you achieve gaming greatness.

We’ve seen it for a few dollars less during the holidays, but make no mistake, this is a solid deal if you’re looking to upgrade your rig.


Stop renting your modem from your ISP and buy this discounted Arris model from Amazon today. Depending on your contract and service, you could pick this up for $60 after the on-page coupon and recoup your losses within a year.

This specific model is suitable for Comcast, Charter, Spectrum, Cox, and Cablevision. Check with your provider to see if it’s supported, and let that long wait time reinforce your decision to not give them more money than you have to.


Unless you live in a very large house, Dyson’s V8 cordless vacuum is probably the only vacuum you need. The $320 Absolute features the longest battery life in the V8 line, and comes with the most accessories. We’ve seen it go for a less, but this price is still a bargain, and trust us, it’s worth the splurge.


Marie Kondo can’t be mad about your junk if you hide it away in these discounted BRUTE Storage Container. For $23, you can hide away 20-gallons worth of joyless goods. Better still, it comes with handles so you can just pick it up and run, just in case Marie decides to look in your garage.


If you’re one of the few who have not yet experienced the magic of the Secret Aardvark sauce, this put-it-on anything sauce will change your life. And right now, Amazon has a case of 12 for $60. That’s $15 off it’s regular price.

Our own Zach Custer recently sang its praises. And if his description doesn’t convince you… well bud, I don’t know what to tell you.


The Switch Pro controller isn’t just one of the best ways to control your Nintendo Switch, it might be one of the best gamepads ever made, period. If you have a Switch and still haven’t picked one up, $57 is about the same price we were seeing around the holidays. It’s not a massive discount from its usual $69, but we rarely see it drop below $64. I’m not a Smash pro or anything, but I really enjoy using it for Smash, for what it’s worth.


Hugo Award-winning science fiction author N. K. Jemisin collected nearly two dozen of her short stories into a compendium that came out late last year, and you can download a copy of How Long ‘til Black Future Month? to your Kindle today for just $5.

From Amazon’s description:

N. K. Jemisin is one of the most powerful and acclaimed authors of our time. In the first collection of her evocative short fiction, which includes never-before-seen stories, Jemisin equally challenges and delights readers with thought-provoking narratives of destruction, rebirth, and redemption.

Spirits haunt the flooded streets of New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. In a parallel universe, a utopian society watches our world, trying to learn from our mistakes. A black mother in the Jim Crow South must save her daughter from a fey offering impossible promises. And in the Hugo award-nominated short story “The City Born Great,” a young street kid fights to give birth to an old metropolis’s soul.


With its modular design, free shipping in regular-sized-boxes, and attractive design, Burrow sits on the throne of the direct-to-consumer sofa industry, and you can score a rare deal on the couch (or chair, or ottoman) of your choice during the company’s President’s Day sale.

For a limited time, promo code George will get you a sizable discount at checkout, which scales up the more you spend:

  • $75 off a $500+ order
  • $150 off a $1,000+ order
  • $225 off a $1,400+ order
  • $300 off a $1,750+ order
  • $400 off a $2,000+ order
  • $500 off a $2,500+ order.

A loveseat, any couch, or a chair paired with an ottoman will get you over the minimum here. As always, you get to pick your fabric, your leg color, and even the height of your arms, and you also get a 30 day risk free trial, with a simple return process if you don’t like it.


Amazon makes its own laundry detergent now, because of course it does, and you can save on both the liquid detergent and the pods. Get 81 detergent pods for $14, or 250 loads of fabric softener for $15 after clipping the $1 coupon. Now if only they’d build an AmazonBasics clothes folding robot.


Your KitchenAid can be used for a lot more than just mixing batters and doughs. Plug in this $64 attachment (the best price since November), and it can also core apples, peel fruits, and spiralize vegetables into healthy “noodles.”


A UPS can give you a chance to save your work when the power goes out, and even keep things like your router and modem running for an hour or so, until the power (hopefully) comes back on. Amazon actually sells its own UPS units under the AmazonBasics umbrella, and this 800VA 450W model is down to $52 right now, the best price since the holidays.

For comparison, this CyberPower model with a similar size battery (albeit with more bells and whistles) sells for over twice as much.


If you have a wirelessly charging phone, you know that you can never have enough charging pads. This 10W charger from Anker is already marked down to $13 from its usual $22, and a $1 coupon on the page lets you save even more.


If any of the approximately 17 million Arduino projects that Lifehacker has posted over the years have piqued your interest in the affordable electronics board, Amazon’s discounting a couple of starter kits today.

This beginner-friendly set includes everything you need to get started for just $28, and the complete set adds a ton more components for $48.


Unless you really need the iPad Pro (and you almost definitely do not), the standard, vanilla 2018 iPad is a terrific tablet for both consuming and creating media. It even works with the Apple Pencil, the first non-Pro iPad to do so.

https://gizmodo.com/the-new-cheap-ipad-is-all-the-ipad-you-need-1825206545

While we saw some better deals on these around Black Friday (if you were quick enough to snag them), $250 for 32GB and $330 for 128GB are still terrific prices. If you ask me, it’s worth buying one of these for the express purpose of playing Civilization VI on the go.


If you have any old SSDs lying around, this SATA to USB 3.0 cable can turn them into speedy external drives, with no tools required. Sure, there are plenty of enclosures that will do the same job, but I think it’s kind of cool to be able to see the label of the SSD.

Get it for $5 with promo code 45QABN4K, while they last.


USB-C Power Delivery is the future, and you can add it to your car with this $14 charger (with promo code MLLEQP8P). In addition to a regular USB port, you get a 27W USB-C port that can charge a MacBook or Nintendo Switch at nearly full speed. If your laptops run off of USB-C anyway, this is a much sleeker solution than an AC inverter.


If you want to build a budget, projector-based home theater, the Prizm II is a good one to consider, and right now you can get it for just $200.

It’s the perfect option for budget-conscious consumers who want to dip their toes in a different kind of home theater. It regularly sells for around $270, and that price was already a great bargain—but this Valentine’s Day promotion is crazy. Use the coupon code PZM4EVER and you’ll have a really terrific 1080p projector.


J.Crew is no stranger to extra discounts on sale items, but for today only, they’re marking down a whole lot of full-priced styles. All shoppers get 30% off these select items with code COFFEE. The time to stock up on classic sweaters, coats, button-downs, accessories, and more is now.


If you’re thinking of going outside anytime soon, this Eddie Bauer sale will serve you well. The outdoor retailer is taking up to 60% off everything on their site (excluding tents, sleeping bags, and non-Eddie Bauer brand products) for their End of Season Sale. So stock up jackets, parkas, boots, and everything else you need for the rest season (or future seasons) before these hot deals cool down.


Spring’s not quite here yet, but don’t let that stop you from enjoying the great outdoors. All the more reason to get some fresh air sooner rather than later: REI is taking up to 50% off a wide range of camping gear, outerwear, winter boots, and other footwear.

If you want to stack even more savings, REI Outlet is running a similarly huge sale as well. A lot of items are only available in limited colors or sizes, but you can score some seriously great deals there. Gather your gear of choice quickly, though; like the cold, this sale won’t last much longer.

Grab a Nike Breathe Hyper Dry tee for just $24, Patagonia’s eco-friendly Silent Down jacket, a new pair of premium Smartwool socks, a fan-driven BioLite camp stove, or check out all the deals from these popular brands.

That’s really just the tip of the iceberg though. There are thousands of deals from hundreds of brands, and you can find them all here.


$24 would be a terrific price for any 46W USB-C Power Delivery wall charger, but it’s particularly enticing for this one, which includes a second USB charging port for your phone as well. Depending on what you bring with you, this could potentially be the only travel charger you need for your phone, tablet, laptop, and Nintendo Switch. Just use promo code IX4QKCI2 at checkout to get the deal.


Samsung’s quantum dot-powered Q8 TV isn’t exactly easy on the bank account, but it would be a stunning upgrade to your home theater, and you can save $400 on the 75″ model today, or $600 on the massive 82″ model, compared to what you’d pay elsewhere.

You can read all about quantum dots here, but the long and short of it that they’re the backbone of a backlighting technology that can produce OLED-quality images on a less expensive LCD panel.

Okay, so with that background out of the way, Samsung’s 2018 Q-series TVs utilize quantum dots to great effect. This Gizmodo review is about the 2017 model, but most of it will still apply to this set. This being the higher end Q8, it further enhances the picture with features like local dimming and Samsung’s best HDR engine. Just note that if you want the 82″ model, you’ll have to select it at checkout.

Don’t need a TV quite this big? LG’s stunning OLED sets are on sale too.


15 Pound 48″x 72″ Weighted Blanket | $60 | Amazon | Promo code M25K7GVA
15 Pound 60″x 80″ Weighted Blanket | $79 | Amazon | Promo code 24UGS26D
20 Pound 60″x 80″ Weighted Blanket | $85 | Amazon | Promo code K9B82YE6

I’m not sure if you’re aware, but it’s cold as hell outside, and I can’t think of a better time for a weighted blanket. In addition to keeping you warm, a weighted blanket can work wonders for your anxiety, and several different models are on sale today for the first time since the holiday shopping season, including a beefy 20 pounder for just $85. Just be sure to note the promo codes.

Personally, I want my weighted blankets to be capable of breaking ribs, but the general recommendation is 10% of your body weight. Not to stress you out, but we wouldn’t expect this deal to last for long.


Winter is all about layers on layers on layers — and Patagonia has vests, puffers, pullovers, and zip-ups galore, all of which are great for wearing alone on warmer days or all at once when it’s an arctic tundra outside. Right now, the winterwear purveyors are majorly marking down their Web Specials section for a limited time. So it would behoove you to pile everything you can into your cart ASAP, so you can pile everything onto yourself during the remaining cold months ahead.


Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, which means lots of deals on lingerie and pajamas. The latest retailer to mark down various underpinnings is Urban Outfitters, which has pledged up to 40% off their range bras, underwear, bodysuits, in addition to a whole lot of loungewear — some of which looks to me like just regular clothes I would wear outside. This sale will only last for a limited time, so go ahead and sift through its many varied offerings ASAP.


We’re big fans of Dallas-based Breda’s minimalist timepieces, and at about $50-$60, they’d make a great Valentine’s Day gift. For a limited time, use promo code KINJA25 to save 25% on the Valor and Belmont styles found on this page, plus free two day shipping so you’ll be sure to get it in time.


Ranging in price from $95 to upwards of $150, Glerups are certainly a splurge, but that didn’t stop them from being swiftly selected as our readers’ favorite slipper a while back. If you’ve been considering picking up a pair for yourself since that fateful Co-op, the wait has been worth it. Right now, the camp-sole versions of both the closed-back shoe and boot styles are on sale for $109 and $125, respectively, at Huckberry.

The rubber soles on these wooly slippers mean you won’t have to change shoes if you want to run outside to pick up the paper or grab the mail, or heck, just wear ’em out. No one would blame you; Glerups are just that comfortable.


In case you haven’t heard, retinol should be a go-to for those looking to rid their skin of acne, dark spots, wrinkles and other imperfections. But because retinol is such a skincare super star, it doesn’t usually come cheap — that is, until now, because Amazon is offering up a $5 off coupon on this solid LilyAna Naturals Retinol Cream Moisturizer.

It will only cost you $15 to start seeing wow-worthy skin clearing results. Just remember, this stuff is powerful, so it’s best to ease this product into your skincare routine slowly before diving face first into daily use.


Humble’s newest bundle features games with swords, magic, and dragons, like Age of Wonders II: The Wizard’s Throne, Darkest Hour: A Hearts of Iron Game, Magicka 2, and more. All of the games in this bundle are available on Steam for Windows and some for Mac and Linux too.


LG’s OLED TVs have achieved something of a cult status thanks to their inky dark black levels and vibrant colors, and today, you can score the best prices we’ve seen on the 2018 B8 models with a couple of refurb discounts on the 55″ and 65″ sets.

Update: While the 65″ B8 we originally posted sold out, and the 55″ increased in price by $30, Walmart has added two new options to this sale. You can get a 55″ E8 OLED set for $1379, which includes a better image processor than the B8, a glass-framed body, and a better sound system (you can read more about the differences here). Or, you can opt for a 65″ C8 for $1999, which has the better processor, but not the improve aesthetics of the E8.

The picture quality should be nearly identical to 2017’s ultra-popular LG sets (which is a good thing!), but the 2018 models include LG’s ThinQ voice assistant and support for HFR (high frame rate video) up to 120 FPS. HFR content doesn’t really exist yet, but a few movies are expected to come to streaming services starting later this year, so if you’re planning on using the TV for several years, it might be worth it for future-proofing purposes.

Walmart has the refurbished 55″ marked down to $1,149 $1179, and the 65″ to $1,749, complete with a full one year warranty.


Firstleaf is an online wine club that learns your preferences, offers tons of options, and most importantly, saves you money compared to buying from the store. It’s a solid deal any time, but it’s even better for our readers right now.

Every new Firstleaf member gets an introductory delivery with six bottles of wine for just $40 with free shipping, and every box thereafter includes six bottles for $80, plus $10 shipping. But if you use this link and promo code Kinja when you sign up, you’ll get FREE shipping on every box for your entire first year. That’ll save you over $100 if you get a new box every month. At the very least, you should get the trial box for less than $7 per bottle. I mean, why wouldn’t you?


Valentine’s Day is officially 13 days out, which means it’s time to start planning something special for that special someone. If you’re smart, you’ll consider getting the object of your affection a bouquet of flowers, because flowers are classic, easy to procure, and — thanks to this deal from 1800Flowers — not too pricey.

For a limited time, if you order select Valentine’s Day flowers to be delivered sometime between February 8 and 12, 1800Flowers will give you 25% off — a pretty solid incentive to make Valentine’s Day come a couple days early. Just use promo code DLVRCUPID and get your S.O. anything from a classic bouquet of roses or an elegant orchid, to a not-so-traditional heart-shaped bamboo plant or azalea bonsai tree. Meanwhile, I personally am feeling emotional about this chocolate-filled gift basket, and also this bucket of popcorn. (Single men of New York City, are you listening?!)


If you’re having trouble sleeping, suffering from anxiety, or having trouble sleeping because you’re suffering from anxiety, Sunday Scaries CBD gummies could help. Jolie Kerr shared her thoughts on them for The Inventory, and now, our readers can save 15% for the always-stressful holiday season with promo code kinja15.

That applies to the regular gummies, the vegan versions, and the pure CBD tincture, with extra savings available if you buy in bulk, so your wallet can rest as easy as you will.


A good VPN is an essential tool for protecting your anonymity online, especially when you’re using public Wi-Fi, and can also potentially unlock other countries’ streaming services. (Hint hint: watch Love Island on Netflix by routing through a British VPN).

Private Internet Access is our readers’ favorite VPN, and to celebrate the official launch of their fancy new app, they’re offering the best deal we’ve ever seen, exclusively to our readers.

Just sign up for a year of the service at $40 through this link, and you’ll get five months added to your membership for free, compared to the three months they’re offering the general public. That’s only about $2.35 per month!
