BEST TECH DEALS

This massive 30,000 mAh pack from Aukey obliges you with a USB-C input/output port, two standard USB ports (one of which includes Quick Charge 3.0), and an extra microUSB input in case you misplace your USB-C cable. Just be sure to enter code AUKEYB03 to get it for $43.


TCL’s inexplicably excellent 4K TVs got even better this year, and Amazon’s running the first real deals on the brand new 2018 6-series sets.

The 55″ is down to $585 from its usual $650, and the 65″ is down to $900 from $1000, though it’s backordered. Both sets include Dolby Vision support, local dimming, and amazing industrial design for the price. In terms of picture quality, they look as good as a lot of TVs that cost twice as much.

This 49″ TCL from last year is also down to an all-time low $270 today, though it doesn’t include the fanciest features of the 6-series.


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 55″ model today, $800 on the 65″, or a whopping $1000 on the 75″

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. That Gizmodo review is about the 2017 model, but most of it will still apply to this set. Just note that to get the larger sizes, you’ll need to add the 55″ to your cart, and select your size there.


USB-C Power Delivery is the future, and you can add it to your car with this $22 charger (with promo code POWERDRC). In addition to a regular USB port, you get a 30W USB-C port that can charge a MacBook or Nintendo Switch at full speed. If your laptops run off of USB-C anyway, this is a much sleeker solution than an AC inverter.


If you got yourself a nice new TV, you can mount it to your wall for just $12 today, complete with a bonus HDMI cable. Just use promo code PBL473S4 at checkout to save.


Yi makes our readers’ favorite budget action cam, and now, they’ve brought that expertise to an extremely affordable dash cam.

$26 gets you the Yi Dash Cam today (with promo code COUM4NCB), this model doesn’t support 1080/60 recording like another Yi dash cam we’ve seen (you’re stuck with 1080/30), but it does have Wi-Fi for easy offloading of clips onto your phone.


Amazon’s Echo Dot is a great voice assistant, and a truly terrible speaker. But for just $24 (with promo code CV8P5PWD), you can drop it into this speaker base, which replaces its puny 3W driver with a stereo pair of booming 10W drivers. Plus, the built-in 5,000mAh battery pack lets you move it all around your house, and even doubles as a smartphone charger.

Note, the black one doesn’t have any Amazon reviews, but you can read some impressions on the white model’s product page.


With 126 local dimming zones, Dolby Vision HDR support (that’s the good one), and built-in Chromecast, Vizio’s 2017 P-Series XLED TVs are stunners, and you can grab the 55″ version from Walmart for $700 right now, which is at least $100 less than elsewhere on the web.


This tiny, $6 USB charger isn’t much bigger than the one that ships with every iPhone, except it has two ports, folding prongs, and 2.4A of total power, compared to the 1A Apple gives you. No surprise, it’s one of our top sellers of all time. Just use promo code OXLNLY6V to get the deal.


VPNs have been in the news, and whether you want to get around video geoblocks, circumvent proxy filters, or just keep prying eyes out of your browsing data while using sketchy public Wi-Fi, reader-favorite Private Internet Access has a deal to fit your needs.

Last month, they offered our readers $10 off two year memberships, but this time around, you get a few more choices, ranging from a quick taste of the service to an extended commitment with additional savings:

These deals are only for our readers, but we aren’t sure how long they’ll be available, so go ahead and sign up while you can.

BEST HOME DEALS

Garment bags are the perfect solution for keeping fancy clothing safe while traveling, and there’s no reason to not store your suits or dresses in one even when they’re in your closet. For $17, you can take this AmazonBasics one. That’s about $5 less than usual.


You know those “Magic Erasers” that can wipe stains off seemingly any surface? They’re really just melamine sponges with a marketing budget, and you can get 20 off-brand equivalents for just $8 on Amazon (after clipping the $1 coupon), an all-time low. I used these after moving into a new apartment last year, and they made quick work of all of the scuffs I made on the walls.

We’ve seen packs with more sponges for about the same price, but they usually ship from China, whereas these have Prime shipping, and are even eligible for Subscribe & Save. They’re also twice as thick as most of the inexpensive competitors on Amazon, so they should last longer and be easier to use.


You don’t need to buy a new car to get a life-changing backup camera, you just need $127 (with code HR3GQZZX), and a few minutes to run the wires. This model attaches to your license plate, and runs to a special rear view mirror that attaches in front of your existing mirror.

Oh, about that mirror…it has a dash cam built into it. Just pop in a microSD card, and you have a backup camera, plus a forward-facing dash cam to record any accidents. It even works as a lane departure warning system, if your car doesn’t have one.


Target wants to make parenting slightly less expensive by offering a $30 gift card when you spend $100 on baby care items. The $100 can go towards diapers, wipes, diaper creams, and more. The gift card will automatically added to your cart and shipped to you.


If you think your kids might enjoy a big ass playset complete with swings, slide, rock wall, and built-in sandbox, buy them this discounted cedar swing set from Home Depot. It’s about $200 off its Amazon price and looks like a ton of fun. Home Depot will even ship it for free, which is a big deal since it weighs over 400 pounds. The sale includes smaller sets and benches, so head over to Home Depot to see it all.


Are you going dairy-free but don’t want to give up your addiction to foamed milk and latte art? Califa Farms’ Barista Blend Almond Milk is specially formulated to be used in foaming and stretching for any of your espresso drinks. And, unlike soy milk, it won’t make your drink taste a little… funny. Right now, a 6-pack is just $15 (or $14 if you sign up for Subscribe & Save), which means it’s under $3 a bottle.


The Cabeau Evolution was your favorite travel pillow (by a long shot), and you can save 25% on yours today.

Unlike cheaper travel pillows that you have to inflate with air, the Evolution is made of memory foam, and wraps all the way around your neck to provide support no matter what direction your head falls when you nod off. You won’t win any fashion awards while you’re using it, but you won’t care, because you’ll be asleep.


Become a more organized person with these discounted bookcases, desk shelves, and entry way coat racks. There’s about a dozen or so products to look through, but my pick would be this wall shelf with hooks for coats and dog leashes and small shelves for mail, keys, or whatever else tends to collect by your front door. It’s just $50 today, down from the usual $60. This cube bookcase could always make a nice addition to a study or living room, and it’s $13 off right now.


Epicurean makes some of our readers’ favorite cutting boards, and they’re on sale on Amazon for the first time all year today. They’re just $10, dishwasher safe, and small at 8″ x 6″ small, so grab a few so you don’t have to keep one clean all the time.

The 11.5″ x 9″ version is also about $1 less than usual today.


There are a couple different DIY fixes (toothpicks, rubber bands, etc) to remove stripped or damaged screws, but if you don’t have the time or patience to try those out, consider grabbing this $7 Dr. Meter kit. It includes four bits that fit into most drills, and grips onto screws making them easier to remove. Just be sure to enter PPLUYR66 at checkout.


I know, I know, kitchen uni-taskers are bad. But, if you plan on shucking more than one cob (like when making delicious Mexican street corn), you might consider a more efficient tool. This corn stripper works kind of like pencil sharpener, removing corn kernels with way less work.


Amazon’s pulling out all the stops to promote Prime Pantry in the lead up to Prime Day, so you should cancel your next trip to the grocery store and stack the digital discounts while you can.

There are a few things going on here, so check out our post to learn more.


All-Clad skillets are among the most popular pieces of cookware we’ve ever posted, and Amazon’s marked the 10″ tri-ply down to one of the best prices we’ve ever seen.

These skillets feature a durable stainless steel cooking surface, an even and rapid-heating aluminum core, and a beautiful stainless exterior, all sandwiched together to create the ultimate pan. And, like all All-Clad items, it comes with a lifetime warranty, though you probably won’t need it so long as you treat it well. The 10″ model is probably best suited to side dishes, or people cooking for one or two, but it’s still a great addition to any kitchen repertoire at this price.


As part of their Prime Day early access deals, Amazon’s taking up to 20% off a bunch of AmazonBasics stuff right now for Prime members.

The selection here is…eclectic, with options ranging from medicine balls, to kitchen shelves, to flatware, to luggage, to a shredder, to a headboard, and a whole lot more. With few exceptions, AmazonBasics stuff is well made an an excellent value, and that’s even more true than usual with this sale. Just note that you’ll only see the deal prices if you’re logged into an Amazon Prime account.


Rack up 20% off a whole bunch of laundry essentials from this early Prime Day sale. The sale has everyone’s favorite Tide Pods in a few flavors scents, plus dryer sheets, fabric softeners, scent boosters, and more.

Some items require you to hit the check box on the product page to redeem the coupon, while others will automatically take the 20% off. Just remember, you won’t see the discount until checkout. And as always, you can save a little more if you Subscribe & Save, and have the freedom to cancel your subscription at anytime after your first order ships.


I don’t know if science can explain it, but the pan I need for cooking is always the pan on the bottom of the heavy stack in my kitchen cabinet. It’s not the biggest inconvenience, to be sure, but this $20 rack would definitely make things just a little bit easier. Just be sure to clip the $5 coupon to get the deal at checkout.


If you live in a city with Amazon’s same-day Prime Now delivery service, but haven’t gotten around to using it yet, they’re running a fantastic promotion for new members to celebrate the lead-up to Prime Day.

For a limited time, you can save $10 on your first Prime Now order with promo code 20PRIMEDAY, and then automatically receive an additional $10 credit to use before the end of the month on another order. This deal requires you to spend at least $10.01 per order, so you can basically pay a penny (not including tip and taxes) to get snacks, ice cream, household essentials, and more delivered to front door. This year’s options are greater than ever, with the discount available on anything ordered from Amazon or Whole Foods Market (excluding alcohol, digital content, and any ordered placed using Alexa).

If the name doesn’t make it clear, you’ll need to be a Prime member to take advantage of Prime Now, but you can sign up for a 30 day free trial here.


Amazon’s really ramping up the deals this week in preparation for Prime Day. You can save on a whole bunch of Amazon’s own brands of food, beauty, coffee, vitamins, and more. If you’re looking for some suggestions, I’d check out these laundry detergent packs, and this wide selection of coffee. Most of these products are at all-time lows, so get to shopping.


BEST LIFESTYLE DEALS

It’s not like having a belt that doesn’t fit right is a huge issue; it’s definitely a personal problem. But it is really, really annoying. Ratchet belts are the answer to that small, but not insignificant problem, and Amazon has a bunch from SlideBelts discounted to just $29-$30 each, today only. Made from vegan leather, you can choose from 18 different colors and buckle finishes.


Electric shavers are great for your face, but what about your back? The highly-rated (and ALL CAPS) MANGROOMER features an extra-long folding handle and 1.5” blade so you can reach every part of your body without any help (much like the BaKblade, which we’ve covered here).

Similar products have been alarmingly popular with our readers in the past, and today’s price is an all-time low.


KTENS (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) massagers seem a bit like pseudoscience, but every time we post a deal on one of these things, we hear nothing but rave reviews. In fact, I use one occasionally after exercising, and it does seem to reduce muscle pain. At the very least, it feels cool.

Naipo has long made popular physical massage products, so an electrical alternative seems like a natural progression.


BEST MEDIA DEALS

Pay less than $3 for these Kindle books in today’s sale. It includes a couple war-themed novels, a memoir called Flat Broke and Two Goats, and more. Just be sure to pick them up before the end of the day, this sale ends at midnight.


Pick up the 2016 adaptation of the Jungle Book at a Mowgli-sized price, just $10.


You won’t have to empty your Gringotts vault to afford this 8-film Harry Potter Blu-ray collection. It’s not the very cheapest we’ve seen, but $45 is the best deal since last year’s holiday shopping season. So, that means you’ll pay under $6.50 per movie, no magic required.


Love to read but don’t have the time to sit down and actually read a book? Sign up for Amazon’s audiobook service, Audible for 66% less than usual during their Prime Day promotion.

For a limited time, Prime members can get three months of the service for $5 each, down from the usual $15. That entitles you to a new book of your choice each month, and everything you buy is yours to keep, even if you cancel after the three month promotional period ends. The offer is available to new subscribers only.


Kindle Unlimited is basically Netflix for ebooks and audiobooks, and Amazon’s offering a very rare discount on the service today. You’ll get your first three months for just $1, after which you’ll be automatically billed the regular $10 per month, unless you cancel. If you love to read, this is a great chance to sample the service without fully committing. The deal is exclusive to new Kindle Unlimited subscribers.


At $8 per month for Prime members, Amazon Music Unlimited was already more affordable than Spotify Premium or Apple Music, but Amazon’s sweetening the pot for new members by offering four months for just $1, for a limited time.

This is by far the best deal they’ve ever offered on the service, so if you’re a Prime member but haven’t signed up for Music Unlimited before, what’s $.25 per month to try it out?


gaming“>BEST GAMING DEALS

Get outside with Champion’s summer sale. They’ve discounted a bunch of outdoor gaming equipment, like horseshoe sets, footballs, volleyballs, those jumping and skipping toys from your childhood, and more. Just be sure to get your orders in tonight, the sale will end at midnight or when the products sell out.


Wear your love of Twitch on your sleeve…or your leggings, onesies, tank tops, or romperjacks. In preparation of Prime Day, Prime members can clip a 50% coupon on a bunch of Twitch-themed merchandise for a limited time. Just pick your product, select your size, then clip the 50% coupon to get the discount at checkout.
