Top Tech Deals

You’ve probably heard a lot of fuss about mechanical keyboards lately, and if not, you’ve at least heard the clicking coming from a nearby desk. If you’re curious to try one yourself without dropping a bunch of money, VAVA’s new model is cheaper than ever today.

You won’t get brand name Cherry MX key switches at this price, but the switches it does include should closely mimic Cherry MX Blues, which are the loudest, most tactile switches out there; I use them myself. The headlining feature here though is the keyboard’s fully customizable RGB backlighting, the likes of which we rarely see in a keyboard under $100.

The VAVA has sold between $80-$100 since it launched about a month ago, so today’s price is an all-time low.

Google Wifi is one of the highest profile competitors in the nascent mesh router market, and Amazon’s taking $20 off a 3-pack of routers today. Granted, that’s not a huge discount (especially with this similar TP-Link system on sale for $200), but it’s the first real deal we’ve seen since Black Friday.

The original Polaroid Snap brought instant photo printing into the digital age, and the new model has a ton more tech under the hood for just $135.

The Snap Touch Instant includes a 3.5″ LCD screen (the original didn’t have a screen at all), can shoot 13MP stills (up from 10MP), and 1080p video (a marked improvement over, uh, no video), and most importantly, features Bluetooth to sync your captures over to your phone. That means the photos you take and print on the Snap Touch can also go straight to Instagram, or conversely, you can send a photo you took on your phone to the Snap Touch’s ink-free onboard printer.

Today’s deal is the first discount Amazon’s ever offered off the Snap Touch’s $180 MSRP, but it’s only available today, or until sold out. You’ll get 10 2“ x 3″ exposures for printing in the box, but you may want to take advantage of this bundle which includes 30 extra sheets for $15 more.

If you missed out on yesterday’s Anker vertical mouse deal, today we have an even more affordable alternative from Velocifire. $13 gets you an ergonomic design, three different DPI levels, and forward/back buttons.

Aukey makes our readers’ favorite car charger, and while this model is a little bit larger than our top seller, it’s just as powerful, and is made of metal. Get it for $7 with promo code AUKEYCC7.

You’re reading Kinja Deals, which probably means you already own at least a few sets of Bluetooth earbuds, but it never hurts to have a spare pair to keep in your gym bag, luggage, or drawer at work. These Mpows can run for eight hours on a charge, and are only $17 today with promo code 7XXKWH49.

Anker’s PowerPort 2 Elite is the travel-friendly version of your favorite USB charging hub, and here’s a rare chance to get it for under $10. The PowerPort 2 Elite includes folding plugs (which snap in place with a very satisfying click, for what it’s worth), 4.8A of power split between the two ports, and even a color-changing light that lets you know when your devices are finished charging.

Whether you’re singing in the shower, blasting music at a pool party, or catching up on podcasts at the beach, this IPX7 water-resistant Bluetooth speaker can go with you anywhere. It’s listed at $40, but promo code AOMAISF1 will knock that down to just $18 today.

There’s not a whole lot to say here: This phone stand has over 5,000 reviews, looks great, and is only $6 today with code 6VGBXP2D. Why wouldn’t you put one on your desk?

Anker, producer of a lot of your favorite charging gear, has its own line of flashlights too, and all three are on sale today for some the best prices we’ve ever seen.

The cheapest model (LC40) is IP65 dust and water resistant, but actually doesn’t include a rechargeable battery. However, you can run it on three AAAs or a single rechargeable 18650 battery, which are cheap and easy to find.

The next step up (LC90) is far brighter (900 lumens vs. 400), and includes a rechargeable battery and a microUSB port, while the most expensive model (LC130) is brighter still at 1300 lumens, and is IP67 rated, meaning you could even use it underwater.

Once you’ve decided which model you want, you have a few different options to save today. First off, the LC130 is $15 off its usual $60, no promo code required. If you’d like the LC90, you can either get if for $22 with promo code HGBGOIWV, or pay the usual $30 for the LC90, and get a FREE LC40 with promo code NWSSMJOF. If you go this route, you’ll need to add both to your cart before entering the code.

Amazon’s back at it again with another great sample box, this time with seven premium beverages for $10, plus a $10 credit on your next eligible beverage purchase on Amazon. If you’ve ever been curious to try Soylent, this is your moment.

Amazon is having a sale on a crazy amount of luggage, carry-ons, and more for the whole family, from brands like TravelPro, Delsey, and Traveler’s Choice. So, if you’ve been using that duffel bag since college and you have a flight to catch soon, you should get on this one. Like any Gold Box, these prices are taking off at the end of the day.

Rubbermaid’s fold-up laundry hamper is actually Amazon’s top seller in the category, and it’s on sale today for just $12. You’ve probably accidentally washed more money than that in your jeans pockets this year.

This isn’t the five pound bag of Haribo gummies you’re accustomed to. No, it’s even better. This is five pounds of Happy Colas for just $8. Just clip the $3 coupon to get the deal, and don’t worry, they won’t go flat if you can’t finish them in one sitting.

Without any wiring to futz with, Mpow’s solar-powered, motion-sensing spotlights are the easiest way to illuminate your front porch or lawn, and you can save big on one, two, or four today. All of the promo codes are below, just note that the more lights you buy, the more you’ll save.

Cuisinart’s 3-in-1 Griddler is one of the most versatile kitchen appliances you can own, and it can be yours today for just $68, after clipping the 15% Amazon coupon.

Why stop with just a griddle, grill, and panini press? Add the optional waffle iron plates to your cart, and get even more use out of your new toy.

Electric kettles are the fastest and most efficient way to boil water, and this model from Aicok even includes six different temperature settings for different types of beverages.

If your old beater of a car doesn’t have Bluetooth built-in, this Anker SoundSync will add wireless audio streaming and handsfree calls to any car with an AUX jack for just $17, or about $3 less than usual. That’s a lot cheaper than buying a whole new stereo, let alone a new car.

Update 6/1: Back in stock!

The official Linksys eBay store has had a ton of great deals on refurbished WeMo products lately, and today, it’s the Insight Switch’s turn.

The WeMo Insight works just like a regular smartphone/Alexa/IFTTT-controlled WeMo Switch, but adds energy monitoring to the mix so you can see how much your appliances cost to run. Previous refurb WeMo deals have sold out quickly, and we don’t think this will be an exception.

Like the idea of a Belkin WeMo Switch, but not willing to spend $40-$50 to try one out? This TP-Link alternative has a nearly identical feature set for half the price.

Just like a WeMo switch, TP-Link’s Smart Plug will let you turn appliances on and off from your smartphone, and set schedules to toggle them automatically. The only major feature it’s lacking is IFTTT support, but it will integrate with an Amazon Alexa for voice control. Just note that you won’t see this discount until checkout.


This Sensi thermostat might not look like much, but you can control it with an app on your phone, or even with Alexa, meaning it’s basically an uglier Nest for less than half the price. No wonder it’s actually Amazon’s #1 selling thermostat.

Today’s deal is about $25 less than usual, so lock in your order before this sale cools down.

Power tools make great Father’s Day gifts, and you can get four Black & Decker 20V tools for just $99 on Amazon. That gets you a drill/driver, a circular saw, a reciprocating saw, a work light, and two batteries to run them. Needless to say, that’s an all-time low.

Paper towels don’t make for the sexiest of deals, but everyone needs them, and eight Bounty Select-A-Size Huge rolls for $14 is a great deal. For comparison’s sake, the same product costs $3 more at Target.

Note: Clip the $2 coupon to get the discount at checkout.

Let me tell you from experience as a kid; getting shocked by an electrical outlet is not pleasant. So if you’re ever planning on doing any electrical work around your house, you’ll want this affordable voltage tester. Just place the tip within 1 cm of a wire or outlet, and it’ll turn green and beep if there’s current running through it.

If you missed out on our exclusive Anker DashCam deal earlier this month, here’s another (slightly more complicated) chance to save.

In addition to the DashCam, you’ll have to add a second Anker product of your choice (even, say, a $5 screen protector) to your cart, and use promo code ROAVCAM1 at checkout to save $20. As far as I can tell, any Anker product on Amazon will do the job, so pick something you want to use anyway.

It’s not nearly as good a deal as the one we posted earlier, but assuming the other Anker product is something you wanted anyway, $80 is a solid price for this camera.

Keep up your appearances for less with the Philps Norelco Multigroom Beard, Stubble and Body Trimmer. This under-$50, dual-sided trimmer allows you to focus your attention below the neck and deserves a solid place in your bathroom arsenal. This is part of a Gold Box, so this price will wash down the drain at the end of the day.

There are also some very informative reviews about the proper usage below the waist that are worth the read on the Amazon page.

Included in the Gold Box as well is a solidly-priced electric shaver that comes with its own cleansing brush head.

You’ve probably been running outside for a few weeks now, but if you were looking for an excuse to pick up new running shoes, here it is. Amazon is marking down four styles (two men’s and two women’s) of Saucony running shoes to $60. But you’d better pick up the pace, because these prices only last for today.

A first aid kit is one of those things you should probably keep in your glove box, and you should definitely have at home, and at $12 for 299 pieces, there’s no excuse not to be prepared for minor accidents.

It includes bandages, gauze, medicines, an instant cold pack, and more, all tucked away in a refillable soft pack. You can thank us later.

Somehow, it’s already June and Marmot is thinking about getting you outside and get you geared up for less. Take 25% off select summer styles for both men and women. Markdowns include summer-ready outerwear, tops, bottoms, and more. It’s like Christmas for the outdoorsy people in your life.

ExOfficio underwear is not only one of your favorite underwear, they’re also a Bestseller . While they have their own 25% off sale on their site, right now on Amazon, a bunch of the top-selling styles (in select colors and sizes) are marked down even further, some as low as $13.

So, click through Amazon and if you can’t find the size/color you want, head over to ExOfficio’s site. They also have a ton of tops (including their Bugsaway Line), pants, and accessories on sale too.

Just because you’re outdoors and/or floating on a body of water doesn’t mean you can’t have something comfortable to sit on. This $32 inflatable blob (with code 6I2UTGC3) might look silly, but it certainly beats sitting in the dirt. This particular model includes a raised end to give you a little extra back support, and you can even choose from five different colors.

Timex makes one of your favorite affordable watch, the Weekender. And, it’s that time of year to start thinking about the perfect Father’s Day gift. So, Timex is giving you 20% off when you use the code IHEARTDAD at checkout, plus free shipping with orders of $50+. And if you don’t heart Dad, you can grab one for yourself instead.

We live in stressful times, and on-demand shoulder massages could probably do us some good. This $20 shiatsu massage pillow includes four rotating massage nodes and infrared heating to knead your aching muscles. It even comes with a car adapter to ease tension during long road trips, or just on your commute home after a tough day in the office.

Top Media Deals

25 years later, Ken Burns’ Civil War documentary series still stands as a seminal work in documentary filmmaking, and the remastered Blu-ray is marked down to $57 today on Amazon, an all-time low.

That gets you six discs and 700 minutes of content, including a new making-of featurette.

If you’re lucky enough to own a Nintendo Switch, you’d damn well better take good care of it. This $8 hard shell case (with promo code 9C9GSQEP) will keep it safe while it rattles around in your bag, and its built-in pockets will hold your accessories and game cartridges too.

If you’re still playing Pokémon Go, the Pokémon Go Plus bracelet isn’t just in stock, it’s actually on sale for about $6 less than MSRP.

The Logitech G502 was your choice for best gaming mouse (though you don’t need to be a gamer to appreciate its benefits), and the upgraded Proteus Spectrum model (which includes fully adjustable backlighting) is on sale for an all-time low $52 today, the best price of 2017.

The marquee spec here is the DPI range of 200-12,000, adjustable on the fly. There are also five easily movable and removable weights, and 11 customizable buttons, along with the classic Logitech dual-mode scroll wheel. Mechanical microswitches and a braided cable are also nice touches.
