An SSD is the best upgrade you can give your older computer, and Samsung’s 850 EVO line is the most popular one there is. A worldwide NAND shortage has reversed the previously inexorable downward price trend on these things over the past year or so, but today on Amazon, you can score a 1TB drive for $300, the best price Amazon’s listed in 2017.
If you don’t need quite that much space, the 500GB model is priced at $150 right now. That’s $10 more than it was last month, but it’s still on the low end of the price spectrum for this drive this year.
They don’t have the battery life of AirPods, either in the buds themselves or in the included charging case, but at $80, these tiny Rowkin truly wireless earbuds are worth a look.
Anker’s glass screen protectors will keep your iPhone displays looking flawless, and you can get two of them for just $5 right now on Amazon.
External Bluetooth transmitters and receivers with 3.5mm jacks have been around for years, but Aukey’s new model raises the bar with support for optical (SPDIF) audio.
The little box can both receive and transmit Bluetooth signals, and includes SPDIF in and out ports to connect it to your TV or high-end audio equipment. Plus, it can even pair to two pairs of headphones simultaneously when transmitting, which would allow two people to, say, listen to the same TV over headphones to avoid waking up someone in the next room. Just be sure to use promo code AUKEBRO2 at checkout to save $12.
You’re probably familiar with the color-changing Hue lights that screw into your existing lamps and light fixtures, but if you really want to paint your rooms with color, you’ll want to pick up a few Hue Bloom accent lights as well.
These lights used to sell for around $80, and today’s $45 deal on Amazon is the best we’ve ever seen. If you’re already invested in the Hue ecosystem, you should absolutely pick up at least one.
If you want to take your Hue ecosystem on the go, the Hue Go is similar to the Bloom, except that it can run off a battery for up to three hours at a time, making it perfect for backyard parties. $60 is one of the best deals we’ve ever seen on it.
There are only a handful of USB battery packs out there with USB-C Power Delivery, and this is the lowest price we’ve ever seen on one of them.
$56 gets you RAVPower’s 26,800mAh battery pack, complete with a 30W USB-C port that can power a MacBook or Nintendo Switch at basically full speed, plus two regular USB ports as well. We posted a deal on a very similar Anker battery pack recently that cost more (though it did come with a USB-C Power Delivery wall charger, no small thing), and either one would be a great companion on a long flight.
You know when you ask someone to take a picture of you and your family on vacation, and you quickly learn that almost nobody understands how to take a decent photo? With a tripod, you can be in total control of those long range selfies, and this $13 AmazonBasics model works with most DSLRs and can extend from 16.5 inches up to 50 inches.
Much like a SONOS, Samsung’s Radiant R5 speaker connects directly to your favorite music services, sounds great, and can sync with other Samsung speakers for multi-room audio. But as you might have guessed from the name, the Radiant outputs crystal clear audio and deep bass (they packed a 5″ subwoofer into that thing!) in 360 degrees. It regularly sells for $300-$350 around the web, but you can get it for just $180 today with promo code KINJARADIANT.
If you have any inkling that you might be interested in 3D printing, this Monoprice deal is as good as it gets. Score their v2 entry-level printer for just $255 with promo code 3DSELECT, while they last.
Our deal researcher Corey is our resident 3D printing expert, and he had this to say:
I own that. I think it is the best starter 3D printer available. Prints ABS, PLA, Copoly, and several other filaments. Expect to tweak it to get the results you want, but also expect more capabilities than its price warrants.
We see a lot of deals on home theater bias lights, but even by our standards, $10 is insanely cheap for an RGB model. Just stick it to the back of your TV, plug it into a USB port, and control it with the included remote.
You could fill a swimming pool with sub-$20 Bluetooth earbuds, but not many of them boast 8mm drivers, let alone 10 hours of battery life. Even if you already own a pair you like, I recommend getting extra sets of headphones to keep in your gym bag or luggage, for when you inevitably forget your favorites.
There’s a nasty new Wi-Fi exploit out in the wild these days, but you can protect yourself from prying eyes (and get around geo-blocked content too) with a VPN subscription.
Lo and behold, PureVPN is offering some pretty stellar discounts right now when you use promo code Privacy20:
- 24 months for $62.40 ($2.60 per month)
- Six months for $42.96 ($7.16 per month)
- One month for $8.76
PureVPN encrypts and obscures all of your internet traffic from everyone from malicious hackers to your ISP to the government, and includes some cool features like a kill switch to automatically disconnect your Wi-Fi if the VPN stops working, as well as split tunneling, which can route some of your traffic through the VPN, while letting the rest go through your ISP.

These $11 gloves let you grab a hot pan out of the oven, pull meat right off a grill, or even turn logs in an active campfire without getting burned, like some kind of superhero. We’ve seen silicone barbecue gloves for less than this in the past, but these are rated for much higher temperatures, and should be more flexible as well.
There’s actually a $15 Lightning deal running on them as of the time of this writing, but whether that’s still valid or not, use promo code L8ERJCOU to get them for $11.
For one day only, Amazon’s deeply discounting a bunch of Kalorik kitchen appliances, from electric salt and pepper grinders to a waffle iron to electric kettles, and more. A few highlights are below, but head over to Amazon to see the rest.
You could store your olive oil and vinegar in the ugly bottles they came in, or you could transfer them to a pair of inexpensive glass bottles instead. Your cooking Instagrams will never be the same.
Both of these discounted blenders come with multiple blending jars, including a food processor bowl, so whether you’re making a smoothie for one or salsa for an entire party, you’ll have the right tool for the job.
Robotic vacuums are so cheap and ubiquitous now, it almost makes sense to start building a fleet of them.
While it lacks the brand recognition of a Roomba, and we can’t personally vouch for them like we can for the Eufy RoboVac 11, this ILIFE A4S vacuum has very good reviews, and is insanely affordable today at $150 with promo code DGQI57RL. Now you’ll have more time to clean the bathroom!
Some people can’t live without their coffee, but for me, it’s fizzy water. While supplies last, you can get a SodaStream Jet from Amazon for $68, complete with a small starter CO2 canister. That’s not the lowest price ever, but it’s the best deal Amazon’s run in months.
This inexpensive bed frame looks great, and its closely-spaced slats make it perfect for those foam mattresses you can buy on the internet, with no box spring required.
Whether you decide to pass them out to trick-or-treaters or keep for yourself, this a good deal on Snickers variety pack. You get 2 full pounds of fun-sized Snickers in all 4 flavors – regular, peanut butter, almond, and crisper for just $9. You can save another 50 cents if you subscribe, but remember to cancel your subscription if you don’t want multiple shipments.
Most of us will soon be enduring the season of perpetual darkness, in which the sun is already setting by the time we leave the office. So really, there’s never been a better time to install some affordable solar motion lights around the outside of your home. You can stick them anywhere that gets a sliver of sun during the day, and they don’t require any wiring.
There are few things more irritating than noticing your tires are low on air, and then having to find a bunch of quarters, driving to the gas station, and cursing the heavens when the compressor shuts off before you’ve finished filling all four.
Instead, just buy this tiny $26 compressor, and fill up your own tires from anywhere. You can thank me later.
The Nest Learning Thermostat usually costs $250, or maybe $200 if you find a good sale, but today at Home Depot, you can pick up a refurb of the previous generation model for only $139. The only real difference between this and the current edition is that it has a smaller screen, and it’s not like you’re watching movies on the thing.
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.
This diffuser is just $10 (with code 9HESUV4K), has 2 different aromatherapy settings, and doubles as an LED light with 5 colors options. Throw in this 9-pack of essential oils, just $13 with code BLISSOIL, and you’re all set.
Amazon makes trail mix now, because Amazon makes everything, and all three flavors are a couple bucks less than usual today. I’ve had the Sweet & Spicy, and it’s excellent. It’s only a matter of time until they can deliver this to you by drone when you’re actually out on a remote trail.
When is a pen worth $40? Possibly never, but the GP 1945 makes
