Memory Foam Pillows, Smart TV, Boogie Board, and the Rest of Monday’s Best Deals
Top Tech Deals
TCL’s 2017 4K TVs aren’t technological marvels, but they might just represent the best value in the TV world, and the 49" model is on sale for an all-time low $360 today.
Anker’s SoundBuds have long been our readers’ favorite affordable Bluetooth headphones, and if you prefer neckbuds, the brand new SoundBuds Life are just for you.
You’ve almost definitely seen headphones like this before, and by now you probably know whether they’re a good fit for your lifestyle. In exchange for a somwhat unorthodox design, the main advantages you’ll enjoy are great battery life and smaller earbuds, hence the “Lite” name. The SoundBuds Life are rated for 20 hours of music streaming, compared to roughly six or seven on most Bluetooth earbuds that include the batteries and antennas inside the ear pieces. And since all of those heavy components live reside in the flexible neck band, the earbuds themselves are tiny, and the included tips and wings ensure that you’ll find a perfect fit.
The SoundBuds Life normally retail for $55, but they’re marked down to $42 this week on Amazon, the best deal we’ve seen.
The Fitbit Blaze combines the fitness tracking acumen that Fitbit is known for with smart watch features like music control, text alerts, and connected GPS, and AT&T’s taking $100 off today, far and away the best price we’ve ever seen on this tracker.
Some days, you just can’t get out of bed or off the couch, but still need to get stuff done. This $11 lap desk has enough room for your laptop or an actual dead tree notebook, and includes a cup holder and even a reading light so you can be productive even when you’re at your laziest.
I didn’t know it was possible to improve upon the handheld white board, but Boogie Board might have done it. This $27 gadget includes a stylus to draw on its LCD display, and will keep its image indefinitely without any power until you hit the erase button, and of course, the “pen” will never dry out.
This model doesn’t shoot in 4K, but it does feature 1080/60, and the footage and photos it takes look fantastic. You can even control it wirelessly with your phone, or transfer your captures over Wi-Fi for instant sharing. This was briefly available for $60 on Prime Day, but if you missed it (there was a lot going on that day, so we can’t blame you), $70 is still $30 less than usual.
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!
Inexpensive truly wireless headphones are finally starting to become a thing, and VAVA’s new MOOV 20s are just $30 today on Amazon, one of the best deals we’ve seen on any true wireless earbuds. Unlike AirPods, they’ll only last about 3 hours on a charge, and they don’t come with a wireless recharging case, but hey, not having a wire around your neck is worth something.
There’s not a whole lot to say here: This phone stand has nearly 4,000 reviews, looks great, and is only $6 today with code 6VGBXP2D. Why wouldn’t you put one on your desk?
Amazon’s new Dash Wand has Alexa built right in, and lets you order groceries and other household goods just by scanning a barcode or using your voice. The best part though? It’s basically free.
The Dash Wand will set you back $20 upfront (not bad considering it’s a full-featured Alexa voice assistant), but once you register it, you’ll get a $20 credit in your Amazon account automatically. It’s basically the same value proposition behind Amazon’s $5 dash buttons, but the Wand seems infinitely more useful and flexible.
Plus, if you live in a city with Amazon Prime Fresh, buying the wand will get you a 90 day trial membership, so you can fully immerse yourself in Amazon’s lazy vision of the future. We posted this when it launched last month, but it’s been sold out or heavily backordered ever since, until today.
Top Home Deals
You spend 1/3 of your life in contact with a pillow, so it had better be a good one. This bed pillow is stuffed with chunks of shredded memory foam, and it can be yours under $50 during this Amazon Gold Box sale. The queen-sized will run you $44, and the king-sized is priced at $48. Don’t sleep on this deal.
Growing your own herbs and vegetables can be a cathartic experience, but it doesn’t have to be a difficult or expensive one. Amazon will ship you an easy-to-assemble garden bed kit for just $27 today. You’ll still have to supply the soil and seeds, but once you buy this, you might finally have the motivation to start planting.
There may be no better way to spend a Sunday than killing a bottle of wine while leisurely making a big-ass paella to share, but the experience isn’t complete without an honest-to-goodness paella pan. Luckily, Lodge makes a heavy duty carbon steel model that’ll work on pretty much any cooking surface, and with a few exceptions, $43 is about as cheap as it gets.
Amazon makes steak knives now, apparently, and you can get a set of eight for just $14 today. They actually look really nice, with no branding to speak of on the handles or blades. Now we just need a set that cuts your steak automatically when you ask Alexa.
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.
If you haven’t replaced your metal spring mattress with a giant block of foam that you bought on the internet, what are you even doing with your life? Right now, Amazon’s marking this Zinus 10” gel-infused foam mattress down to just $110-$210, with queens checking in at $170.
The mattress is also infused with green tea extract and castor natural seed oil to “naturally retard odor & bacteria.”
We’ve all had to throw away leftovers or cuts of meat and cheese that spent a little too much time in the fridge or freezer, but vacuum sealing your foods can keep them safe from freezer burn pretty much indefinitely, and dramatically extend their shelf life everywhere else.
It sounds like an expensive proposition, but today only, Amazon’s selling the well-reviewed FoodSaver Starter Kit for just $56, complete with everything you need to get started. Of course you can use this to store meats in the freezer for a long time, but it can also keep cheese from molding, lettuce from wilting, or cookies from going stale, just to name a few examples. Think about how much food you throw away, and you’ll get a sense of just how quickly this purchase could pay for itself.
What’s that noise your car’s making? It’s all the crap rolling around in your trunk. Luckily, this $12 pop-up organizer will keep everything in its place.
We’ve seen these solar-powered spotlights on sale from a number of manufacturers over the last few years, but OxyLED’s take on the category includes not one, but two motion sensors, giving it a whopping 210 degrees of motion detection. That means it’ll turn itself on even if you’re approaching it from behind, giving you a ton of new mounting options.
Not only is the new WeMo Mini Smart Plug smaller than the top-selling original so as to only cover one outlet, it’s also cheaper. You’ll almost always see it available for $35, but today on Amazon, it’s knocked down to $30.
Despite its diminutive size, this includes all the same features as the full-sized WeMo Switch, including IFTTT support, Alexa compatibility, and an Away mode that will randomize your lights to deter ne’er-do-wells.
No, this isn’t a trophy for best shower technique, it’s actually a stainless steel bar that uses
magical powers “molecules in the steel [that] bind with the sulfur molecules on your hands” to remove strong scents like garlic and fish. Just rub it around in your hands like a regular bar of soap.
If you use a Keurig coffee maker (no judging), Amazon’s latest sample box is a no-brainer. $8 gets you seven or more K-cup samples from multiple providers (including some “samples” with three cups each), plus an $8 credit to spend on your next eligible K-cup purchase from Amazon. Assuming you were going to buy coffee from Amazon anyway, that’s like getting the samples for free.
For a limited time, Amazon will sell you three pouches of Tide HE-compatible laundry detergent (totaling 144 ounces or 93 loads) for just $13. These pouches are designed basically as refills for plastic Tide bottles, but as long as that doesn’t bother you, this is a fantastic price-per-ounce for any detergent, let alone name brand. Just be sure to clip the $4.50 coupon on the page and use Amazon Subscribe & Save.
Top Lifestyle Deals
Tarte Cosmetics is one of those brands that is always in my makeup bag. Right now, they’re giving you 25% off basically everything they have in stock, including their sale items. Use the code PARTY at checkout and get 25% off some of your favorite products.
Unfortunately, the only product exclusion is their Shape Tape concealer.
With 13 different length settings and four combs, Braun’s Multi Grooming Kit is perfectly suited for both your beard, your head, and your body hair. It even comes with a free Gillette body razor for precision touchups.
In case you missed it during the Prime Day chaos, ExOfficio’s insanely popular sweat-wicking men’s underwear is still on sale for $12-$15, in multiple sizes and colors. It’s extremely rare for Amazon to have this many options in stock, let alone at a discount, so don’t miss your chance to stock up.
Whether you wear TOMS for the ease of never having to tie your shoes or just dig the style, this is one deal you should take advantage of. They’re having their Summer Sale, with an extra 25% off select styles with promo code SUMMER25. Now you have a real reason to throw out your old, gross ones.
You can get $25 sunglasses that are polarized or $25 sunglasses with metal frames, but rarely both, and never in this many different styles.
If you missed out on our exclusive code last week, Prime Day brings 20% off a ton of styles from Privé Revaux. Just add them to your cart to see the discount.
Privé Revaux makes polarized, stylish shades for less than half of what you’d expect, and right now, our readers can take advantage of their best prices ever. Yes, the models are celebrities looking super awkward who probably had nothing better to do, but the sunglasses are actually pretty great looking.
Top Media Deals
If you haven’t seen Fargo (the movie, not the new TV show), or if you’re a fan and just want to add a copy to your collection, you can purchase it digitally for just $5 on Amazon right now. You’re darn tootin’!
Every single panel of Calvin and Hobbes’ 11-year run has been collected into a 1456 page box set, and it can adorn your shelves for an all-time low $48 today. Even if you don’t want it for yourself, you could stash it away as a birthday or holiday gift for someone who would appreciate it.
The latest Humble Bundle is an ode to legendary comic creators Jack Kirby and Will Eisner, with over two dozen titles available digitally. As always, you can pay whatever you want, but certain titles will be locked behind a couple of price tiers.
Top Gaming Deals
Update: The DualShock 4 is sold out, but the Xbox One gamepad is still available. Sorry!
Whether you own a PS4 or Xbox One (or both!), you can add an extra controller to your collection for $38 right now. They’re both the newest models as well, which means USB support for the DualShock 4, and built-in Bluetooth for the Xbox One gamepad.
GTA V’s campaign is great, and its online mode is still incredibly active and constantly changing, so its no wonder that the game has been relatively immune from downward price pressure, even years after release. Today though, you can score a copy on PS4 or Xbox One for $30, the best deal we’ve seen.
In addition to the aforementioned comics bundle, Humble’s also running a bundle with 10 different Capcom games, and you can get them all for as little as $12.
