Turns out, having a laptop with only USB-C ports means you need to carry a dongle with you from time to time. Who knew? Luckily, these $34 hubs from VAVA are designed to perfectly match your space grey (promo code KINJA8888) or silver (promo code KINJA7777) MacBook, and turn one USB-C port into an ethernet port, an SD card reader, an HDMI output, and three USB 3.0 ports. There’s even pass-through USB-C charging, so you’re not even really using up one of your precious ports.
If you already have a receiver that can support it, this Klipsch speaker pair makes it easy to upgrade your existing home theater audio setup to Dolby Atmos. Just set the upward-firing speakers on your TV stand, or ideally, on top of your existing speakers, and enjoy the future of home audio with minimal fuss. $315 is an all-time low for the pair, and $85 less than usual.
Sony Digital Paper is what you’d get if an iPad and a Kindle had a baby. Its capacitive touchscreen lets you draw on with an included stylus, making it perfect for taking notes or marking up documents. But the display is e-ink instead of LCD, so the battery lasts a long time, the tablet’s as thin as 30 sheets of paper, and it’s readable in direct sunlight.
Want to get started with Philips Hue? This two bulb kit is marked back down to $100 today, matching an all-time low. Those full-color bulbs usually sell for $50 each, and even on sale rarely dip below $40, so if you need a hub, this is a great deal.
Amazon’s Echo Dot is a great voice assistant, and a truly terrible speaker. But for just $20 (with promo code INV2YNO5), 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.
Sound bars are usually associated with home theaters, but this miniature, USB-powered one will be right at home on your desk, underneath your computer monitor. It’s only $26 today with promo code KINJAOPH, which is a no brainer if you ever listen to audio through your computer’s terrible built-in speakers.
We see deals with some regularity on Anker’s 6' nylon-wrapped Lightning cables, but today, you can also upgrade your standard 3' cords for just $8 each. These cables feel ridiculously nice in the hand, are way more durable than Apple’s first party cable, and comes with a lifetime warranty, so what’s not to love? Just use promo code CABLELTN on any color of either size to save.
We’ve seen power cubes with more ports and outlets from other manufacturers, but Anker’s take on the category has a few nice touches. While it leaves one side of the cube empty, it does come with adhesive pads that let you mount it on a wall or underneath a desk. It normally sells for $25, but you can get it for just $20 today ($1 less than our previous mention), no promo code required.
The Hub allows you to use your iPhone, Android device, or even an Amazon Echo to control everything a Harmony remote can (which is basically any piece of home theater gear you can think of). So even when you inevitably lose the included remote behind the couch cushions, you’ll still have multiple ways to take control of all of your home theater gear.
Travel Router: Turn any ethernet jack you find into a Wi-Fi hotspot, which can still come in handy at certain hotels and conventions.
6,000mAh USB Battery Pack: Keep your phone and tablet charged during a long day away from any power outlets.
File Hub: Transfer files and wirelessly stream content from an SD card, hard drive, or flash drive to all of your devices. Imagine loading a cheap SD card up with movies for a long trip, instead of, say, buying a more expensive iPad with extra local storage.
Get it for $30 today with promo code 43G2U2FD.
ElevationDock 4 | $39 | Amazon | Promo code DOCK4KINJA | $36 each when you buy two or more.
The ElevationDock 4 uses a pair of fine adjustment thumb screws to move the back wall and floor of the dock to accommodate any model of iPhone, as well as most cases other than super-thick ones like OtterBoxes. That means when you buy a new iPhone, as long as it uses a Lightning connector, you’ll still be able to use the dock.
Beyond that, there are insanely nice features throughout, from the braided cable on the back, to the CNC-machined steel adjustment knobs, to the NanoPad (with two levels of stickiness!) on the bottom that keeps the dock anchored to your desk, allowing you to remove your phone with one hand.
We’ve only ever seen one other discount from its usual $60, so if it’s been on your wishlist, you can grab yours for $39 with promo code DOCK4KINJA, in both black and silver. Or, if you buy two or more, that same code will drop them to $36 each.
What were they thinking inventing this surge protector and not calling it the Power Tower? Missed marketing opportunities aside, it comes with a whopping 18 outlets, four USB ports, and its own 6.5' retractable power cord. Plus, it rotates for maximum flexibility. Get it for $24 today with promo code 6TSP4BEC.
You know those fancy Bluetooth earbuds you love using so much? Surprise: they won’t work with your Nintendo Switch, or the seatback TV screen on a plane. But for just $16 (with promo code Q7BINWU2), you can plug this Bluetooth dongle into any headphone jack, and connect to it with your favorite wireless headphones for wireless listening.
It also works as a Bluetooth receiver, so you can plug it into an old stereo system or car, and broadcast music from your phone over Bluetooth to speakers that otherwise wouldn’t be compatible.
Bose’s wireless QuietComfort 35 noise-cancelling over-ears are basically a mute button for the rest of the world, and you can get them for $299 today, down from the usual $329. In addition to amazing sound quality and noise cancelation, they even work with Google Assistant, and as of a firmware update last week, Alexa too.
Aukey’s magnetic vent mount was already our readers’ preferred method for mounting phones in the car, and right now, it’s just $5 with the code AUKEYDD5.
Even if you already own one of these, I find it’s worth keeping an extra in my luggage so I’ll always have it handy for rental cars.
This Aukey surge protector orients its four AC outlets and two USB ports to the side, which is great for hiding behind furniture. But it’s also a night light and phone stand, which is sort of contradictory to the furniture thing, but I guess you could use it either way. Get it for $14 with promo code AUKEYP06.
Private Internet Access doesn’t do much in the way of discounting, but they offer exclusive pricing and packages just for our readers that you won’t find anywhere else. Here are your options, and what you’d pay if you bought the same plan elsewhere:
This Masterbuilt electric smoker makes cooking jerky, brisket, or (insert meat of your choice) as easy as dropping in some wood chips and hitting a few buttons to set your temperature. And at just $114, you’ll have a lot of money left over to buy meats.
Dyson vacuums dominated the nominations in our Kinja Co-Op for best vacuum, but they can be prohibitively expensive. Today though, the popular Dyson Ball is down to $200 on Amazon, which is $100 less than usual, and the best price we’ve seen for a non-refurb.
The Dyson Ball includes a brush that automatically adjusts when you move from carpets to hard floors, a long extension hose, and yes, it rests on top of a ball for easy maneuverability. This is easily one of the best Dyson deals we’ve ever seen, even if it is refurbished, so don’t be surprised if it sells out early.
I have to say, I don’t think pressure washers ever crossed my mind as a market Anker might compete in, but here we are. Its 2100 PSI and 1.78 gallons per minute specs should be more than enough power to clean your car or driveway, and its 35' power cable and 26' hose mean you probably won’t even need an extension cord to go with it.
Its regular $200 price tag is about what you’d expect with those specs, the current $150 list price is a really good deal, and promo code ANKERXLF makes it even more enticing at $120.
These motion-sensing outdoor lights run off batteries that recharge via built-in solar panels, meaning they don’t require any wiring, and can be installed in minutes. Get four of them—one for each side of your house—today for just $29 with promo code 7I8NB7HG.
If your car’s center console doesn’t have enough storage space, a couple of organizational tools are on sale in today’s Gold Box. Both slot in between your console and one of the front seats using a combination of friction and adhesive, extra storage space for your phone, spare change, or even an extra drink cup. The best part though? They’ll stop a lot of french fries from falling under the seat, forever lost to that unknowable black hole.
I’m an avid coffee drinker, but come 3:00pm, I’d rather sip on a cup of tea. If you’re anything like me, this one-day sale is steeped with deals you’ll enjoy. Today only, choose from many types of loose-leaf tea from Oolong to English Breakfast to Turmeric Ginger, plus pick up some simple, classic double-walled tea cups as well.
Installing LED strip lights above your kitchen cabinets or under furniture is the easiest way to make your houseguests say “whoa,” and this $29 strip (with promo code VXFNNQ58) is one of the best deals we’ve seen on one. With full RGB LEDs and support for Apple HomeKit, Alexa, and Google Assistant, you can easily add it to your existing smart home lighting scenes, and invoke it with the voice assistant of your choice.
So what’s the catch? It’s only two meters long, and can’t be extended, so it’d be an ideal HDTV bias light, or could be mounted under fairly small pieces of furniture, but you won’t be able to run it across an entire room.
Reusable silicone bags are great for packing lunches, freezing foods, and yes, even for sous-vide, all while being way greener than disposable sandwich and freezer bags. Today on Amazon, get a four pack of microwavable, dishwasher safe bags for just $18 with promo code 20KINJADEALS.
Why buy off the rack when custom tailored suits are so affordable, not to mention so fun to design? From now until Saturday at midnight, you can look your best with a custom suit from Indochino, our readers’ favorite custom clothing company by a wide margin. For a limited time, grab any suit from this page for just $299 with promo code KINJA18. That deal is exclusive to our readers, and it’s a match for the best price we’ve ever seen on Indochino suits.
You don’t need any accessories to do push-ups, that’s sort of the point. But nevertheless! The freely-rotating Perfect Pushup system reduces stress on joints and works out some extra muscle groups, so you’ll get the most out of your workout. At $20, they’ve never been cheaper.
There’s no better time to give Urban Outfitters a second look than when they make all of their Out from Under bras and bralettes $16. Just add your favorites to your cart and watch the extra discounts at checkout.
Naipo has long made popular physical massage products, so an electrical alternative seems like a natural progression.
There’s still a lot of sun to soak up this summer, so if you’re running low on sunscreen, or if you’re still squeezing that bottle that expired two years ago, this Amazon coupon is a great chance to save. Several Neutrogena varieties are $3 off at checkout, with Prime shipping. Prices before the coupon start at just over $6, so this is a serious deal...I never joke about proper sun protection.
We’ve posted a lot of deals in the past on these coccyx seat cushions, but when use the code XW678YE5, it brings it to one of the best prices we’ve seen to date, and this particular model is one of Amazon’s top sellers. These will improve posture and ease back pain in any chair where you spend a lot of time, from the office to the car to a long flight.
Even if you don’t think you’ll use all of the products, this Nivea for Men Sensitive Collection gift set is a hell of a bargain at $13, after you clip the 50% coupon on the product page. You’ll get face wash, body wash, shave gel, shave balm, and lotion, plus a bag that you can use as a dopp kit. The 50% coupon leads me to believe they’re trying to clear these out, so grab one before they sell out.
If you’re going to buy your textbooks on Amazon anyway this year, be sure to use promo code TEXT10 at checkout to save 10% on any $100 textbook order (shipped and sold by Amazon.com), up to a maximum $50 discount. That might not seem like much, but for a semester’s worth of books, 10% savings could buy a whole lot of ramen and Natty Ice.
Remember the pop-up books from our childhood? They consisted of pulling a tab and a barn door disappeared to reveal cows and horses inside. That was complete shit compared to this pop-up book.
You’ll open the pages of this book to erect a paper planetarium, working instrument, speaker, decoder, and more cool things. After the $1 off coupon, you’ll pay just $20 for this book, the best Amazon price we’ve seen in a year. Plus, it would make a great gift for kids and adults.
This edition comes with the base game plus the Rise of the Necromancer and Reaper of Souls DLC packs, a bunch of different local and online multiplayer configurations, and most importantly of all, the ability to play as Ganondorf.
I know drones are the RC vehicles de jour in 2018, but check out the video above of this RC car (the video above is actually a smaller 1:24 scale version, the deal is for the 1:16). It can go up to 22 mph, has four wheel independent suspension, and it recharges over USB. At $50 (with promo code IB7IXPC8), it looks fun as hell.
When these 3/4-sized Arcade1Up arcade cabinets first went on preorder for $299, we thought it was a mistake, since they were supposed to cost $399. At this point though, it seems clear that $299 is in fact what they now cost, but inventory is still limited, since they were out of stock for awhile.
Anyway, they’re all back now, and they’re still $299, so if you want one, now’s your chance.
