Whether you ordered a new iPhone 8 or 8 Plus, or you’re still rocking a phone from the iPhone 7 generation, these discounted Anker cases will keep your handset safe.
Whether your current mouse is giving you chronic wrist pain, or you just want to try something different, this 4.2 star rated wireless ergonomic vertical mouse from Anker is only $14 today (with promo code DEALSUBA), or $6 less than usual. In addition to the clever design, it even comes with three adjustable DPI settings and forward/back buttons, which are pretty rare at this price level.
As you’d expect from any high-end TV these days, that gets you a 4K panel and Dolby Vision HDR, but OLED technology means the blacks will be far richer, and the colors more vibrant than any LCD-based screen you can buy. It’ll still cost you, but your eyes will tell you it was worth it.
Inexpensive Bluetooth earbuds are a dime-a-dozen, but if you prefer over ears, today’s your lucky day.
You might not have heard of these Avantree headphones, but they have a stellar 4.4 star average from over 2,600 customers, and run for a whopping 40 hours on a charge. If the battery does somehow die on you, just plug in the included 3.5mm cable, and use them like regular headphones.
They normally sell for around $55, so don’t miss this one-day sale to get them for $41.
Launched under Anker’s home brand, Eufy, the Genie smart speaker starts at $35- the lowest price so far on Amazon’s analog, the Dot, but today the barrier to entry to the Alexa ecosystem gets even lower at just 30 bucks with promo code GENIE009. Even better, new subscribers to Amazon Music Unlimited get three months free with their Genie purchase.

Want to hook up your USB-C-only MacBook to a TV, projector, or certain monitors? This USB-C to HDMI dongle will get the job done at up to 4K/60, which is as good as it gets.
The ideal power supply for your nightstand or office desk is just $17 today. iClever’s BoostStrip includes four USB ports and three power outlets, meaning you can charge all of your mobile devices, run a computer and monitor, and even plug in a lamp, all on a single wall outlet.
I know that Uber is evil, but some cities don’t have widespread Lyft coverage or reliable cab systems, so we won’t judge you if you buy this $100 gift card for $90. That’s money you can use to tip your driver.
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.
VPNs are in the news these days, and with good reason. So if you’re curious to sign up and start protecting your browsing history and personal data (or, you know, getting around websites’ geoblocks), NordVPN charges less per month than a typical trip to Starbucks.
NordVPN has long been one of the most popular and reliable VPN providers out there, and if you sign up for a one-year membership, promo code VIP70 will drop your annual price from $69 to $48. If you’re sure you want to commit, use this link instead to get a special two year plan for $79 with code 2YSpecial2017. Lifehacker has recommended Nord in some previous guides, but if you have any firsthand experience with the service, sound off in the comments!

You spend a third of your life touching bed sheets, so you really ought to invest in ones you like. Today only on Amazon, you can upgrade to soft 400 thread-count sateen from the Gold Box. Prices range from $37 for a full set to $43 for a king, and you can choose from four different colors. Those prices are only available today though, so don’t sleep on it.

You’ll have to find a way to display them, though, as the poster rails and framing aren’t included.
Robotic vacuums are so affordable now, you can basically own a fleet of them, and you can get a Wi-Fi controlled model for just $160 today.
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 ECOVACS vacuum has solid reviews, and are insanely affordable today at $160. You can even control it from your phone, which is very rare in this price range.
You don’t need to buy a new car to get a backup camera (which is life-changing, by the way), you just need $82, 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.
Chemical Guys makes some of the most popular car detailing products on the market, and Amazon’s currently taking 20% off several soaps, sealants, scents, and more. Just note that the prices listed on this page don’t include the discount, so you won’t see the deal until checkout.
Update: This deal is back and $1 cheaper.
Spend $15 on a pan you’re going to have for the rest of your life and then pass down to your grandkids in your will. We have mentioned the magic of cast iron many times and the Lodge brand is one of the best.
At $15 today, that’s just about as low as the price goes on Amazon so might as well buy them while they’re hot!
Speaking of hot, the handle gets VERY hot so I would also recommend one of these.
Enjoy $9.50 off 12 packs of Perky Jerky with code 9SPICYPERKS, because there’s no better way to kick off the weekend than knowing a box of jerky will be at your doorstep soon.
They’re offering 4 flavors with both beef and turkey options.
I’m not saying you need a machete, but this one has a fine blade on one side and a saw blade on the other, and is only $10 on Amazon if you’re willing to wait out a backorder. So…why not?
Update 9/22: Now down to just $139 with promo code GARDEN30.
This $154 Masterbuilt electric smoker (with code
WAREHOUSE30 GARDEN30) makes cooking jerky, brisket, or (insert meat of your choice) as easy as dropping in some wood chips and hitting a few buttons.
With precise temperature control from 100 to 275 degrees, you’ll have complete command over the finished product. Today’s price is easily the best we’ve seen, so you’ll have more money left over to spend on delicious, delicious meat.
My cat is an indoor cat and terrified of the outdoors. But if she ever wanted to venture outside, I would feel better buying something like this to give her a warm, dry safe haven if she ever needed it.
The Kitty House features heated and unheated options with sturdy roof to wick away any rain. Plus, it has different color options for kitties with discerning taste.
OxyLED is best known for its battery-powered light strips, but this discounted kit plugs into an AC outlet, and is designed specifically for under-cabinet installation.
The kit comes with three foot-long LED light bars, plus three connecting cables. You can either plug the bars into each other to create a longer strip, or use the cables to snake around corners and extend your setup. Once it’s all installed, just use the touch-sensitive power button to turn them on and adjust the brightness, and enjoy a well-lit countertop while you prepare dinner.
Our readers have bought thousands of OxyLED’s T-02 motion-sensing light strips over the years, but if you’ve found them to be to annoying to charge, the new T-04 looks like a great upgrade.
Like the T-02, the T-04 can attach to basically any surface via the included adhesive strips, and will automatically light up when it detects motion in the dark. The main difference is the battery: rather than charging AAAs or plugging in a microUSB cable, the T-04’s battery pack is fully detachable, and plugs directly into any USB charging port. I have a couple of these set up around my apartment, and they work extremely well.
The Dyson V6 cordless vacuum is ideal for cleaning rugs, hardwood floors, car seats, ceilings, shelves…pretty much anything really, and you can get a refurb of the Animal version on Dyson’s official eBay store today for $185 with promo code PSAVE15NOW, the best deal we’ve seen. Compared to the standard V6, this model has 75% more brush head power to lift pet hair and other debris out of carpets and furniture. I bought it from Amazon about a month ago, and absolutely love it.
I prefer steaming over ironing – it’s faster, easier, and you don’t need to bust out the ironing board. This $30 travel steamer heats up in 40 seconds, allowing you steam out all those wrinkles in no time. Plus, skipping the dry cleaner every once in a while and steaming instead can make your clothes last longer.
Normally selling for at least $34, the $30 price tag today is the lowest we’ve seen.
$40 gets you the Yi Dash Cam today, down from its usual $50 with promo code YIDASH40. The key feature here is 1080p/60 recording, compared to the 1080/30 you normally see in this price range. That means you have twice as many frames to get a clear shot of a license plate. Its f/1.8 aperture, 165 degree FOV, and 2.7″ screen are nothing to sneeze at either.
1050 lumens is very bright for a flashlight, and $27 is a great price for one that powerful. It’s especially notable though for a flashlight with IP68 water resistance (basically, you can dive with it) and an included rechargeable battery. Just don’t point it in anyone’s face.
Look, it’s not a Herman Miller or anything, but a desk chair with 360 degree swiveling, height adjustment, and recline for $43 is an insanely good deal if you’re looking to outfit your home office. You can get it in all black, or choose from three different accent colors if you have bad taste.
The SmartCharge is a Bluetooth FM transmitter that takes the Bluetooth signal from your phone, and rebroadcasts it the FM radio station of your choice, giving you truly wireless audio and handsfree calls in older vehicles that don’t have Bluetooth built in. And since this is an Anker brand, you also get two high speed USB charging ports.
We’ve seen plenty of products that do this before, but the SmartCharge has one more trick up its sleeve: a car finder. Once you turn off your car and Bluetooth disconnects, the Roav app will drop a pin on a map, and help you find your vehicle later. You probably don’t need that feature very often, but it could come in handy on confusing city streets, or sprawling stadium parking lots.

Zappos is basically a one-stop shoe destination already, but right now, they’re having an actual sale, marking down thousands of sandals for the end of the season. Heels, flats, thong, slides, all kinds of styles from brands like Tevas, Nike, Birkenstock, Sam Edelman, Keen, and more. Stock up for next season while you can.
Our readers have bought tens of thousands of pairs of ExOfficio’s quick-drying mesh boxer briefs, but if their sky high cost (you’d be lucky to get a single pair for $15) has scared you off, here’s a budget-friendly alternative with great reviews.
David Archy’s performance boxer briefs use a similar nylon/spandex combination as ExOfficio (they say polyamide and Lycra to be fancy, but it’s the same thing), and Amazon reviewers say they compare very favorably. The biggest difference: Price. While supplies last, you can get three pairs for $22, about $4 less than usual.
Just note that the product page includes mesh, stripe, and solid options, with decreasing sweat wicking abilities, respectively. Get the mesh if you see any in your size, is my advice.
While Anthro’s ability to create unique, interesting clothing is admirable, the prices can sometimes be…daunting. That’s why your best bet on adding something different to your closet is to hit up their sale section when they throw an additional discount in there. Right now, take 30% off everything that’s on sale, which they just stocked with a bunch of new things.
Dorco’s Pace razors consistently represent some of the best values in the shaving industry, even when they aren’t on sale, but if you aren’t sure which model is right for you, this trial pack can help you decide.
The Pace Trial Pack includes a handle, six Pace 6 Plus cartridges (which include a seventh blade on the top to use as an edger), and four each of their Pace 6, Pace 4, and Pace 3 cartridges, which includes six, four, and three blades, respectively. The set would normally cost you about $38, but promo code KINJA921A will take 50% off at checkout.
We’ve seen several deals on these electric shoulder massagers, but this one is somewhat unique in that it’s battery powered, so you can use it outdoors, on a plane, or anywhere around your house where there isn’t a convenient power outlet nearby. We’ve posted a similar product from Naipo a few times before, but this one has twice as many shiatsu nodes (eight vs. four), so it’ll feel like you have a small army of masseuses tending to your knots.
No matter your sports supplement of choice, you can probably save $20 on it today on Amazon.
Dozens of energy supplements, protein products, and vitamins are included in this sale. All you have to do is fill your cart with $60 worth of eligible products (shipped and sold by Amazon), and you’ll automatically see a $20 discount at checkout. There’s a lot to sort through here, so leave your suggestions and favorite products in the comments.
When it comes to having a corner on the market, nothing really compares to Nike. And right now, use the code SUMMER20 and take an extra 20% off their sale styles for both men and women. Everything you could need for a good workout wardrobe is included, from apparel, to sneakers, to gear.

The Collapsing Empire by John Scalzi was one of the most highly anticipated sci-fi novels of 2017, and it’s currently one of Amazon’s top sellers. Download the audiobook version (narrated by Wil Wheaton!) for just $3 today on Amazon.
Amazon’s running a Marvel digital comic sale that’s bigger than any Avengers movie today, with literally thousands of titles marked down to just a few bucks, in most cases. You’ll find everything from the Guardians of the Galaxy to Darth Vader to Deadpool to Captain America in there, and every hero in between, so there’s never been a better time to stock your digital shelves.
The selection is overwhelming (400 Amazon pages, or over 6,000 titles!), so we’ll drop a few safe bets below, but definitely leave your own suggestions in the comments.
Author Daniel Shumski is asking life’s tough questions. His primary question: Will It Waffle?. His answers are detailed in a book on the Kindle app, just $1 today.
This decision isn’t anything to waffle over, you’ve spent $1 on sillier things.
Update: With apologies to anyone that bought this for $90, it has now dropped to $85, matching the deals we typically see on eBay.
We see 15% iTunes gift card discounts on eBay from time to time, but today Amazon’s offering a 10% discount on $100 gift cards, the first iTunes credit discount they’ve ever offered, at least to my knowledge.
Obviously, 10% < 15%, but if you have some iTunes gift cards you want to use, or the Amazon Prime Store Card which gets you 5% back on Amazon purchases, this could make sense. I’m going to buy this and spend every cent on iOS 11 AR games.

If you own more than one set of Joy-Con for your Nintendo Switch (and Mario Kart exists, so why wouldn’t you?), it can be a pain to keep the spares charged up. But this $26 stand from Hori can juice up two pairs at once while you play a game with the far superior Pro Controller.
The Nintendo Switch costs $300 (on the off chance that you can actually find one), and Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle isn an excellent, just-released game that would set you back $60. So getting both for $340 is about as good as Switch deals get these days.
NBA 2K18 is out, and while they skirted Amazon’s 20% preorder discount by only offering digital versions, you can get a disc for $48 right now on eBay.
Humble’s second Very Positive Bundle is built around one core concept, and it’s a good one: Positive user reviews on Steam. All eight games here boast at least 88% positive ratings from players, so there isn’t a stinker in the bunch, even if you may not have heard of every title.
As always, different games are locked behind different price tiers, but this one has a special $80 fourth tier which includes Middle Earth Shadow of War and a Shadow of War t-shirt.
