Today’s Best Tech Deals

If you own a Nintendo Switch or USB-C-powered laptop, a USB-C Power Delivery battery pack is a must. Anker just came out with a brand new one, and you can save $30 today with promo code HYBIRD62.

First, the basics. It’s 19,000mAh, includes two PowerIQ USB charging ports, and a 27W USB-C port that can charge a 12″ MacBook at nearly full speed, or a MacBook Pro a bit slower. And unlike most of Anker’s competitors’ batteries, it also includes a 30W USB-C PD wall charger in the box that can recharge the battery in 3.5 hours, and double as an extra wall charger for your other gadgets.

That’s all well and good, but the PowerCore+ 19000 PD Hybrid has one more trick up its sleeve, one we haven’t seen on any other battery pack: It doubles as a USB data transfer hub. Just switch it into hub mode, and those USB-A charging ports become data ports that can transfer data between your PC and any connected USB hard drives and flash drives. That makes it the most comically large USB-C dongle in the world, but even so, that’s a handy skill, and means you’ll have one less thing to pack when you travel.


Sennheiser’s HD 650 open back headphones are widely considered some of the best-sounding cans you can buy for under $1000, and the best chance to get them is when MassDrop drops a new shipment of the legendary HD 6XX.

The 6XX is basically exactly the same as the standard 650, but with a 6′ cable rather than the original’s 10′, which is actually a better length, in my opinion. The 650s are currently listed for $319 on Amazon, and have never been cheaper than $287, but MassDrop has a limited number units of the 6XX available for $200, while supplies last.


It’s not 4K, or even QHD, but this 1080p ViewSonic monitor is huge. 32″ exact. And with a frameless design, it’ll look stunning on your desk. Get it for $169 today, or about $30 less than usual.

Today’s Best Home Deals

I know for a fact that a lot of you have bought Anker’s Eufy RoboVacs. So if your brushes and filters are starting to look a little worn out, you can save $8 on the official refurbishment kit today with promo code EUFY2909. Just note that it’s only compatible with the RoboVac 11S and newer models.

Don’t have a RoboVac yet? The new RoboVac 12 is on sale for just $200 right now with promo code EUFYRVC2, and the RoboVac 30C (which should perform the same, but with the addition of Wi-Fi and boundary strips) is on sale for $240 without a promo code, down from $300.


Yankee Candle’s latest offer keeps things nice and simple: Buy three of anything, get three of anything for free. Or, to put it more simply, add any six items to your cart, and the three least expensive will be completely free. That’s what I call a great Valentine’s Day sale.


When compared to traditional blenders, stick blenders are 1,000x easier to clean up after. You can skip the blender work bowl and just place this stick blender in whatever container you were already using to make your sauce, smoothie, or whatever else needs to be pureed. That means less dishes, and more time to do all your other chores (or enjoy whatever meal you just mixed up).

This blender is just $30 today, the best price Amazon’s ever listed. It also includes a couple of dedicated blending containers (including a food processor) and a whisk attachment. Not sure what to use it for first? My suggestion: Make some refreshing watermelon juice using Alton Brown’s method.


Scott’s Shop Towels make will ruin paper towels for you forever, and you can stock up with 12 rolls today for just $23.

Today’s Best Lifestyle Deals

<Slowly gestures towards the showroom while elevator music plays, and I summon my most sultry, vaguely European accent> Cashmere

Today only, Amazon’s Gold Box is full of cashmere sweaters, jackets, tees, dresses, and more for the entire family, with many adult options available for under $70. Just note that like all Gold Box deals, these prices are only available today, or until sold out.


David Archy might not be a household name yet, but they sell some of the most popular underwear and clothing basics on Amazon, and a whole bunch of it is on sale today, including other items like shirts, robes, and socks.

Don’t know where to start? Just trust me and get a three-pack of micro modal boxer briefs for $23, down from the usual $28. You won’t believe how soft they are.


Perricone makes some seriously great cosmetics, but they are, uh, not cheap, to put it gently. Today though, you can try their Theo:White two-step skin brightening system for just $20 with promo code KJPCONE.


We’re big fans of Dallas-based Breda’s minimalist timepieces, and at about $50, they’d make a great Valentine’s Day gift. For a limited time, use promo code KINJA35 to save 35% on the Valor and Belmont styles found on this page.


It’s all in the hips. This hip band adds resistance to lunges and glute exercises, and you can snag it for just $20 in today’s Amazon Gold Box.

Today’s Best Media Deals

This is the comic deal you’re looking for. This weekend only, Comixology is taking up to 67% off dozens of digital Star Wars comics, spanning from the time of the prequel trilogy (what happened to Darth Maul, anyway?), all the way to the highly acclaimed Poe Dameron series. Buy them, you must.

Deals You May Have Missed

Das has long made some of the best typist-focused (rather than gaming-focused) mechanical keyboards money can buy, and today, you can save $50 on the new Das 5Q, which is another beast entirely.

Advanced key switches, aluminum construction, fast response, n-key rollover? That’s all here, of course. But what sets the 5Q apart from other Das keyboards is its smart macro feature. Featuring dozens of built-in applets, and the ability to program your own, the keyboard’s RGB lighting can shift based on things like new emails arriving in Gmail, your RAM usage, Asana tasks, Twitch streams going live, weather forecasts, and more. Whether it’s gimmicky or useful probably depends on how you work, but it’s undoubtedly unique.


Amazon Echo owners are already winners on Game Day this year: Right now, they can get four free months of Amazon Music Unlimited, in celebration of the Super Bowl. The deal only applies to new subscribers and will renew automatically, but if there were ever a reason to start streaming, it’s this sale. If you’re a Prime member, it’ll renew at $8 per month after your four free months, which is cheaper than the likes of Spotify and Apple Music.


SanDisk’s microSD cards are some of the most popular and highest rated on the market, and if you need a lot of extra storage for your Switch, GoPro, drone, or dash cam, this 256GB model is down to $45 today, which is within $5 of the best price we’ve seen (it was cheaper around Black Friday).


With 100 local dimming zones, Dolby Vision HDR support (that’s the good one), and built-in Chromecast, Vizio’s 2018 P-Series TVs are stunners, and you can grab the 55″ version from Walmart for $648 right now. If your local store has it in stock, you can even pick it up in time for the Super Bowl.


If you have an old 2.5″ hard drive or SSD lying around, you can build an external drive with this Vantec NexStar enclosure. What sets this particular model apart is its USB-C connection, which allows for faster transfer speeds and a hardwired connection to those pesky MacBooks.


Amazon’s new 4K Fire TV Stick has basically everything you could want in a streaming dongle in a tiny, unobtrusive package, including Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos support. Not bad for $40.

That’s $5 more than Black Friday’s deal, but it’s still a solid price given the feature set.


I’m not saying you’re going to need a power inverter in your car all the time, but it’s never a bad idea to have the option handy for plugging in a laptop, a light, or anything else that can’t run off of USB or DC power. This 140W model from Stanley includes a couple of USB ports in addition to a power outlet, and you can stash it in your glove box for just $12 today.


The best upgrade for an old PC is an SSD, and if you don’t need a ton of space, this 240GB model from PNY is down to $35 today, an all-time low. You could even stick it in a cheap enclosure, and use it as an ultra-fast portable hard drive.


If you don’t own a pressure cooker, today’s a great day to fix that, as Amazon’s knocked the highly-rated Instant Pot IP-DUO60 down to $80, or $20 less than usual. While that’s not as good as some deals we saw late last year, and the Plus model was on sale for the same price yesterday, it’s still worth mentioning for anyone who hasn’t bought one of these yet.

Instant Pots do more than just cook foods quickly, though they certainly do that. In fact, it’s is also our readers’ favorite slow cooker, and one of their favorite rice cookers too. To put a fine point on it: It’s one of the most versatile kitchen gadgets you can own, and worthy of all the hype. If you order quickly, you could even have it in time to help prepare Super Bowl snacks.


Ring is best known for its security cameras and doorbells, but its indoor home security system is one of our favorite options without a monthly fee (but if you do want 24/7 monitoring, it’s only $10 per month). The five-piece entry level starter kit includes a keypad, base station alarm, a contact sensor, a motion sensor, and a range extender, and today’s $159 deal is the best price Amazon’s ever listed.

And oh yeah, they’re throwing in a free Echo Dot too. That means you can arm, disarm, and check the status of your system with only your voice.


If you have trouble turning off your brain and falling asleep at night, this feature-packed white noise machine might be the key to better sleep.

LectroFan can pump out 10 white noise sounds plus 10 fan sounds. And since they’re all generated dynamically, you’ll never hear any jarring looping. It’s even USB-powered, so you can easily charge it with any normal phone charger.

It has nearly 8,000 reviews and a 4.5-star rating on Amazon and very rarely goes below $45, but you can get one today for just $35. We don’t know how long this deal will last though, so don’t sleep on it.


Choosing to invest in a standing desk is a big commitment, so don’t commit. Instead, become a fair-weather desk stander with the Halter ED-257, now down to the shockingly low price of $80 (in the cherry wood color only). This desk comes pre-assembled; all you have to do is place it atop your existing workspace, and switch off between sitting and standing to your heart’s (and your legs’) content. But this isn’t a standing offer. In fact, it likely won’t be up for long.

And while you’re at it, treat your feet to this cool standing desk mat, also on sale.


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?!)


Anker’s home goods brand, Eufy, put its uber-popular copper string lights back on sale today for $8, one of the best prices we’ve seen on the version that includes a remote. Just use promo code EUFY1602, and go make your patio pretty!


These boots were made for walking in cold weather, and that’s just what they’ll do if you take advantage of an extra 25% off men’s and women’s sale items at Timberland. The additional discount on already marked-down styles will show up in your cart, and it will pay off big time for your winter-weary feet. After this week’s polar vortex, a re-boot is in order, anyway.


The changing of the seasons is a great time to buy new clothes, and while it might not currently feel like spring is on the horizon, warmer temperatures will be here before you know it. Right now, Marmot’s taking up to 50% off hundreds of sale items during the company’s end of season sale, which is a great opportunity to save on clothes for the coming months, or stock up on cheap winter wear for next year. No promo code required.

Need somewhere to get started? The Marmot Precip (men | women) and Minimalist (men | women) were both among our readers’ favorite rain coats, and I’m a particular fan of the minimalist’s hood brim.


Twice a year, ExOfficio blows out its inventory with an end of season sale, so get over there right this minute and stock up for a rare 40-60% off.

Obviously, ExOfficio’s Give-N-Go underwear is the stuff of legends, and a great place to start with this sale. But dig a little deeper, and you’ll find leggings, shirts, pants, jackets, and more. Orders over $50 ship for free, so fill up that cart.


Winter may already be half over — fingers crossed, right? But in case the cold doesn’t go anywhere anytime soon, Backcountry’s Semi-Annual Sale is here to ensure that you are prepared to weather any conditions over the next few months. Starting today, take up to 50% off tons of gear, clothing, and accessories from your favorite brands, including Patagonia, Marmot, Mountain Hardware, Sorel, and others, and fear the frigid outdoors no more.


Who else used to shriek like a banshee when their mom tried to brush the knots out of their hair back in the day? Just me? OK. Well, I wish my mom had had this Wet Detangler Hair Brush back then, but luckily, you can get two now from Daily Steals for just $10 with promo code KJBRUSH3.

It’s fine to use on wet or dry hair and will even work on wigs and hair extensions. And with over 1,500 reviews on Amazon, this brush comes highly recommended by the tangled hair set. Not today, knots.


Don’t let this deal make you go red in the face; we’re all adults here, and lingerie is maybe the most sought after item on the Valentine’s Day gift list. So pick up a few quality pieces at Journelle, which happens to be taking 25% off all red lingerie through February 5 with promo code LADYINRED. Their stiff is well made, size inclusive, and actually attractive, so no red flags when it comes to this sale.


15 Pound 48″x 72″ Weighted Blanket | $60 | Amazon | Promo code JZVP3EA8
15 Pound 60″x 80″ Weighted Blanket | $76 | Amazon | Promo code BNV6RX8S
20 Pound 60″x 80″ Weighted Blanket | $80 | Amazon | Promo code KTQ6ON3M

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 $80. 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.


Don’t buy the AmazonBasics microwave because it has Alexa support. Buy it because at today’s $42 (down from the original $60), it’s one of the cheapest microwaves you can buy, period.

But once you have it, the Alexa commands (fed to it via any Alexa speaker, not included) are actually pretty cool. Instead of punching in numbers, you can just tell Alexa what you’re cooking or reheating, and Amazon’s AI will program the microwave for you. Want to add 30 seconds to your cook time while your fingers are covered in raw chicken juice? You can do it with your voice. The microwave still has regular buttons, and obviously, Alexa support isn’t a true necessity in a microwave, but it’s undoubtedly pretty cool, especially when you aren’t really paying for the privilege.

You probably have a big-ass battery pack that can keep your phone charged for days, and that’s great! But you should also own one that can fit in your pocket, and this 5,000mAh model from RAVPower fits the bill.

Clip the $2 coupon and use promo code KINJA652 at checkout to get it for $11, which is a great price for a full phone charge whenever you need it.


There were a lot of Sonos deals around the holidays, but if you missed out on those, their Super Bowl sale could be your last chance to save for quite some time.

The new Beam sound bar is $50 off, while the Sonos Sub, the Playbase, and the larger Playbar sound bar are all $100 off. Even at full price, the Beam is arguably the best value in the Sonos lineup, so that’s where we’d recommend most people start. And of course, you can also pair any Sonos Play:1s or Ones with any of these products to use as satellite speakers in a surround sound setup.


There are few things more frustrating than having to mail a package, and realizing you’re out of packing tape. But order this six-pack of Scotch tape rolls and dispensers, and that nightmare scenario won’t come to pass for a good long while.

The $10 list price isn’t all that unusual, but the automatic 15% discount for using Subscribe & Save is. Just be sure to cancel after your first shipment if you don’t want to inundated with adhesive.


They aren’t double sided, sadly, but these TravelWise packing cubes are actually Amazon’s top sellers, boasting a 4.6 star average from over 2,000 customers, and you can save 20% on the color of your choice today by clipping the coupon.

I know what you’re thinking…luggage for your luggage? But trust me when I say that they make packing easier by compressing and organizing your clothes, and they make it a lot easier to unpack when you arrive at your destination.


Playtime for your pet just got more exciting with this sale from Chewy. Take a bite out of 20% off hundreds of toys, from plushes and ropes, to dog bones to cat scratchers. But these prices won’t be making tails wag for long. Ready? Go get it, boy!


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. The only thing it’s missing is kisses from mom to make the boo boo feel better.


I do not live in the midwest or the mid-Atlantic, but if I did, I would be spending my entire day under one of these heated blankets, conveniently on sale today at Amazon.

My advice: get the more expensive one. It’s only a few bucks more, but it’s a lot larger than the sherpa blanket, and has 10 different heat settings instead of three. That’s not a big deal today, when the only setting that matters is “maximum,” but you’ll be glad to have more options later.


Even though there are record low temps across the country right now, Sorel is saying it’s the end of the season — whatever you say, Sorel. Still, you can take advantage of the boot brand’s rush to declare that winter’s over; right now, select items are marked down by up to 40% for their End of Season Sale, meaning it’s the best time to buy boots that will certainly keep your toes feeling toasty in these tundra-like conditions.


$20 Polos | Original Penguin
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Update: This deal is back on select polos. The page now has a lot of $25 and $30 options mixed in, but there are still a lot of $20 shirts.

No guy’s closet is complete without a handful of good polo shirts, and Original Penguin has dozens of styles to fit any mood. Normally priced at $55-$69, the whole lot of them have been marked down to $20 for a limited time, with free shipping if you log into a free account. Over 50 different styles are included, so get some for every season.


We’ve got a sale that will make you get out your wallet…and ditch it for something newer and cuter. The pocketbook purveyors at Kate Spade want to hook you up with new handbags, wallets, clothing, jewelry and other accessories this season, so they’re taking an extra 30% off already marked down sale items. Use promo code BRRR to take advantage of this designer deal.


SPANX pretty much has the market on shapewear cornered, and they’re not exactly cheap. So if you feel like that’s something you want, head over to Nordstrom Rack. The selection currently on sale includes SPANX of all shapes and sizes — everything from bike shorts, tanks, and slips to bras and briefs — so you can probably find the perfect undergarments for any outfit you’ve got.


Full disclosure: You will look kind of goofy when you use this AuraGlow Teeth Whitening Kit. It’s worth it though, because right now, you can bring one home for just $43, after clipping the $5 off coupon. Included in the set is two syringes of whitening gel, plus an LED light that speeds up the whitening process, in addition to a mouth tray and case. Yes, the light makes you look like a duck, or just an adult sucking on a really big pacifier. But hey, no one said the ordeal of getting whiter teeth would be pretty.


Tax season is upon us, and if H&R Block’s Deluxe + State software is right for you (you can use this tool to find out), Amazon’s currently discounting it to just $22, or about half its usual $45 price tag.

Deluxe is great for homeowners and anyone with any sort of standard investment income, but you’ll want to step up to Premium if you rent out property or are self-employed. It’s also on sale for $32, an all-time low.

Whichever one you choose, you’ll be able to import your previous years’ taxes from TurboTax if you’re switching over, and you can elect to receive all or some of your refund in the form of an Amazon gift card, with a 5% bonus.


Humble Bundles are usually centered around PC games, or occasionally Android, but the Humble Indie Playstation bundle for 2019 is all about the PlayStation 4.

Nine PS4 downloadable titles are spread across three different price tiers, including Grim Fandango, Broken Age, and Shadow Warrior 2. $15 unlocks everything (including a bunch of soundtracks), but as always, you get to pay whatever you want, and a portion of the proceeds will go to charity.


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 huge discount from its usual $69, but we rarely see it dip past this current price. I’m not a Smash pro or anything, but I really enjoy using it for Smash, for what it’s worth.


Men’s and Women’s Seamless Down Parkas | $100 | Uniqlo
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Uniqlo’s Seamless Down collection is a step up from their famed Ultra Light Down in terms of heat retention and water and wind resistance, and today, the entire line is down to the lowest prices we’ve ever seen. Two men’s coats, one parka, and one women’s coat are all on sale for just $100. So take advantage of this discount now, and ride out the rest of winter encased in cozy Uniqlo down.


Don’t let the weather (or your wallet) scare you off of spending time outdoors; REI Outlet just kicked off a temporary markdown sale through 2/4, with discounts of up to 70% on thousands of name brand items. Clothes, outerwear, tents, sleeping bags, and other accessories are included, and popular brands like Arc’teryx, Smartwool, Columbia, and the North Face have their own sections of the sale.

There are a lot of deals to sort through, but here’s some gear we’ve previous recommended that’s included in the sale. As you’d expect, sizes and colors are limited, so be sure to check out the full sale page, where you can sort by size and gender to see what’s available.

The North Face Flight RKT Running Shorts (Women) | Great for trail running

Arc’teryx Beta Raincoat (Women) | Our readers’ favorite raincoat

Marmot Minimalist Raincoat (Men and Women) | We love the hood brim

Smartwool Socks | Reader favorites

Mountain Hardwear Ghost Whisperer Jacket (Men and Women) | Legendary, and also a reader favorite


If you’re still sticking to your get-fit New Years resolutions at this point in January, you deserve a medal. Or, just treat yourself to some new sneakers and/or activewear from Reebok. Right now, the sports-minded retailer is taking up to 70% off men’s and women’s sale styles that are on their way out of season, but chances are, you’ll make good use of them for months and months to come.


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.
