LG’s OLED TVs have achieved something of a cult status thanks to their ridiculously dark black levels and vibrant colors. If you were waiting for Black Friday to snag yours, the discounted price on the 55″ C8 model is already live.
The picture quality got an upgrade over last year’s model thanks to a new processor that improves color accuracy, reduces artifacts, and supports HFR (high frame rate video) up to 120 FPS. HFR content doesn’t really exist yet, but a few movies are expected to come to streaming services starting later this year, so if you’re planning on using the TV for several years, it might be worth it for future-proofing purposes.
We’ve seen cheaper deals on the lower-end B8 model, but that one uses last year’s processor, meaning it can do HFR or HDR, but not both at the same time like the C8.
Whether your current mouse is giving you chronic wrist pain, or you just want to try something different, this 4-star rated wireless ergonomic vertical mouse from Anker is only $13 today with promo code ANKE7809. 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.
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 $20 (with promo code f56YJJYJ), you can plug this Bluetooth dongle into any headphone jack, and connect to it with your favorite wireless headphones for wireless listening. It even has AptX codex support for lower latency.
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.
RAVPower’s HyperAir Qi charging pad is one of the few models out there to support the fastest-possible 7.5W iPhone charging, and you can get it for just $20 today with promo code KINJA889.
To be clear, there are a lot of Qi pads that support 10W charging for certain Android devices, but iPhones require a very specific frequency to enable their maximum charging speed of 7.5W, and this is one of the most affordable compatible pads we’ve seen, and the cheapest we’ve seen with the necessary Quick Charge 3.0 power adapter included. It’s normally priced at $30; today’s $22 list price itself is an aberration, but still, don’t forget the code!
Update: This deal is still available, but now you can also get the Fly More Combo for $850 from MassDrop, which includes three batteries, spare propellers, propeller guards, a travel bag, a carrying case, and some extra cables and adapters. It’s probably worth the extra $150.
If you aren’t a professional photographer, but still value image quality and features in your drone, the DJI Mavic Air offers the best combination of portability, ease of use, and camera specs on the market. It’s rarely been discounted much from its usual $800, but now you can get it for an all-time low $700 on Amazon.
I had a chance to fly one of these at Outpost this year, and as an old Phantom 2 owner, I was completely blown away. It folds up small enough to fit in a jacket pocket, but holds remarkably still in the air. Front and rear obstacle avoidance cameras keep it from crashing into a tree (or a person), and its gimbal-stabilized 4K camera can automatically track moving subjects, or perform pre-programmed shooting routines. You’ll have a ton of fun with this thing.
An Echo smart speaker lets you control your Fire TV Stick with nothing but your voice, so it makes perfect sense that Amazon would offer a Dot + Stick bundle. For a limited time, you can get the streaming dongle plus a second generation (the old one) Echo Dot for $40, which is the regular price of the Fire TV Stick by itself.
On paper, the Nebula Prizm’s picture quality stats are a dead ringer for the Capsule’s. It outputs an 800 x 480 picture at 100 lumens, features automatic keystone correction, and has a built-in 5W speaker. However, it lacks an Android OS (you’ll have to use a streaming dongle, or something similar), and it has to be plugged in at all times, since it doesn’t have a battery.
Novelty aside, I could see it being perfect for a kid’s room, or maybe a bedroom or garage where you occasionally want to watch video, but don’t want to keep a TV. And at $100 (down from the usual $130), it’s practically an impulse purchase.
If you’ve had your eye on Samsung’s 8000-series TVs, which are the company’s best non-QLED sets this year, their Black Friday discounts are already live. Every size (55″, 65″, 75″, and 82″) includes Samsung’s new Dynamic Crystal Color engine and HDR10/ HDR10+ support, plus some nice quality of life features, like the Bixby voice assistant, and a quad core processor for speedy smart app operation.
These prices are the same that we’ve seen in Black Friday ads, and we have no reason to expect them to go any lower. So buy now, and you’ll be set up in time for Thanksgiving football.
NETGEAR’s Nighthawk X6 includes all the networking features you could possibly want, including tri-band support, six beamforming antennas, and two USB ports for connecting printers and external storage drives. Oh, and it’s fast. Like, really fast. $180 is the same price we’ve seen in Black Friday ads, and you can get it right now.
Our readers have bought thousands of Yi’s home security cameras, and today, you can get a panning and tilting 1080p model for $36 with code XNUQ2G79.
Yi now offers an online cloud DVR service that will store seven days of motion detection footage (six second clips when it detects movement) for free, or more footage if you pay. That said, you can choose for forego the cloud service altogether, and just store your clips locally on a microSD card. The camera also has two-way intercom and live broadcast built in, so you can check in on your house any time you want.
The SoundCore’s headlining feature is its 24 hour battery life, and in my experience, that’s a conservative estimate. It also packs in dual 6W drivers for room-filling sound, and looks pretty great to boot. It’s been mostly selling for $30 lately, but you can get it for just $24 today in red and blue, within $2 of the best price we’ve ever seen.
Update: Kickstarter discounts on the Capsule by itself are nearly sold out! There are some bundles with more availability, but if you don’t need the added accessories, you shouldn’t wait.
Anker’s soda can-sized Capsule portable projector was a crowdfunding hit last year, and it really did deliver on its promise. But there were a few obvious areas for improvement, and Anker tackled all of the big ones with the brand new Capsule II, now up for preorder on Kickstarter.
So what’s new?
1) Resolution: The original Capsule’s standard definition 480p has been bumped to 720p, so your videos should look a lot crisper. Easy win.
2) Brightness: The first Capsule’s 100 ANSI lumen bulb was fine in a dark room, but the Capsule II’s is twice as bright, which means you’ll be able to get a usable picture in more lighting conditions, and at larger screen sizes. I saw it firsthand in a fairly well-lit event space, and while not as bright as a TV screen or a full-sized projector, it was definitely bright enough to watch a movie.
3) Software: The original Capsule had a version of Android installed, but it was pretty janky, and didn’t have access to Google Play. This time around, the Capsule II ships with Android TV 9.0 onboard, with access to the vast Google Play app store, which means you won’t have to rely on your phone for casting content.
There are a few other minor differences of note, including the inclusion of USB-C Power Delivery for fast charging, an improved speaker, and autofocus. It is a bit bigger than the Capsule (which will remain on sale for the time being); Anker calls it “pint sized,” rather than soda can-sized, which was pretty cheeky of them. Whatever beverage you compare it to though, it’s still very small for a projector.
Kickstarter backers can preorder the Capsule II right now for $399. Anker’s touting a $599 MSRP for the Capsule II, and while there will surely be discounts after it comes out, Anker’s previous crowdfunding projects have, in hindsight, legitimately offered prices to backers that weren’t matched on Amazon for many months after release, if ever.
If you ever bought a Capsule I prior to this Kickstarter going live, you’re also eligible for a $100 rebate when you preorder the Capsule II. Check out the bottom of the campaign page for details.
This tiny, $6 USB charger isn’t much bigger than the one that ships with every iPhone, except it has two ports, folding prongs, and 2.4A of total power, compared to the 1A Apple gives you. No surprise, it’s one of our top sellers of all time. Just use promo code FQCJOBX6 to get the deal.
What were they thinking inventing this surge protector and not calling it the Power Tower? Missed marketing opportunities aside, it comes with 10 outlets, four USB ports, and its own 6ft retractable power cord. Plus, it rotates for optimum space-saving. Get it for $18 with promo code ROXH3B3E.
Walmart has already marked down a few of the TVs listed in their Black Friday ad: Grab a smart Sharp 50″ TV with HDR (though not Dolby Vision) for $249, or a 55″ version for $299, both the best prices we’ve seen. If size trumps features and you don’t need smart functionality or HDR, there’s also a 65″ RCA on sale for $399.
The Anker PowerCore Fusion is one of our biggest sellers ever, because it combines a USB wall charger and a portable battery pack into a single product. Now, RAVPower has their own alternative with a slightly larger 6700mAh battery inside, and you can grab it for just $23 with promo code KINJABYC.
They sent me one to check out, and despite the larger battery inside, it’s barely bigger or heavier than the Anker, and would make a great holiday stocking stuffer.
VPNs have been in the news, and whether you want to get around video geoblocks, circumvent proxy filters, or just keep prying eyes out of your browsing data while using sketchy public Wi-Fi, reader-favorite Private Internet Access has a deal to fit your needs.
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:
These deals are only for our readers, but we aren’t sure how long they’ll be available, so go ahead and sign up while you can.
Instant Pot makes a sous-vide circulator, and confusingly, it doesn’t require an Instant Pot. Sure, it’ll clip onto your Instant Pot inner pot, but it’ll also work with a regular stock pot, just like any other sous-vide circulator.
So what makes it interesting? The price! At $60, it’s far less than equivalent models from Anova. Buy it now, practice on a few steaks, and then go and do an entire Thanksgiving turkey next week.
Before we go any further, let’s get this out of the way: Please don’t burn your house down. Alton Brown can show you the way to fry a turkey safely, and it’s so worth the extra work to not eat your Thanksgiving meal to the dulcet tones of firetruck sirens.
Now, why do you need this 30-Quart Turkey Fryer? Because frying has been the trendiest way to cook your holiday turkey for as long as there have been culinary trends. Because for $40, it’s a smart investment. Because it’s what William Shatner would want for you. (And if you’re not sure how to fry a turkey? There’s an app for that.)
Perhaps the most brutal aspect of winter isn’t the cold itself, but the severe dryness that the cold brings along with it. If that’s the case for you and your skin, eyes, nose, lungs, etc., go big and invest in this Dyson AM10 Humidifier. Today, it’s just $350 at Amazon, a steal compared to its usual price of $500. This humidifier claims to kill 99% of bacteria with ultraviolet light before projecting any mist into your home. And this purchase will serve you well into summer, when you can use its high-velocity air function to cool down any room. Don’t mist — sorry, miss — out on this discount; get yours before the deal dries up.
The BL660 includes an 1100 watt motor, a 72 ounce pitcher, and a pair of single-serve smoothie cups so you don’t have to clean the big pitcher every time you feel like making yourself a smoothie to go.
Look, no one is judging you for being an adult and still managing to spill stuff all over your carpet and sofa. We’re human. It happens. But people will judge you if you don’t even try to get the stains out, because gross. To that end, may we suggest the Bissell Multi-Purpose Portable Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner?
It’s less cumbersome than a full-size carpet cleaner, more effective than the old spray-and-rag technique, and much easier than always moving your furniture to cover spots on the floor. It even has a drying function to save you from the horrors of wet socks. What will they think of next?
If your tool chest is lacking a good set of pliers, this 8-piece VISE-GRIP GrooveLock set is only $60 on Amazon, within about $3 of an all-time low. The set features a near-perfect 4.7 star review average from over 500 customers, and comes with a lifetime warranty to boot. Needless to say, it’d make a great gift too.
Cuisinart’s Multiclad Pro cookware uses the same steel and aluminum triple-ply construction of All-Clad pans, but at $130 for a complete set, you can actually afford to buy them. The durable and induction-friendly stainless steel exterior combines with an even-heating aluminum core that extends all the way up the sidewalls, giving you the advantage of both metals in a single pan. If you’ve ever cooked with tri-ply, you know that it really does make a difference.
This collection includes a couple of skillets, a saute pan, a sauce pan, and a stock pot, which together should meet nearly all of your cooking challenges. If you’re still using the $10 pans you bought when you moved into your first apartment, these are going to blow you away. Just note that this is a Gold Box Deal, meaning it’s only available today.
Miir makes some of our favorite vacuum insulated stainless steel drinkware, and they just kicked off their best sale ever on Amazon.
First up, the camp cup. This is a favorite of ours thanks to its handle, colorway variety, and sip-through lid, and it’s 30% off today in every color. Even if you don’t camp, you should use it at home. And even if you don’t want one, you should buy them as stocking stuffers. Black and white are down to $17, but you’ll pay $21 for the more fun designs.
For heavier liquid loads, Miir’s popular 32 ounce growler is a whopping 50% off its usual price as well, in every color. It’ll keep beer cold for 24 hours, or coffee hot for 12, and its buckle lid seals in carbonation, while remaining easy to clean.
It’s almost Thanksgiving, which means turkeys everywhere will soon be in ovens, and amateur chefs everywhere will soon be nervously staring into said ovens for hours on end. But how about spending those precious holiday hours with family and leaving the turkey monitoring to this ThermoWorks ChefAlarm, down to just $51 today.
The ChefAlarm is designed for commercial use, so you know it works. Plus, it has a volume-adjustable high alarm, for when your food reaches your chosen high temp, and a low alarm, for cold dishes. And by the way, ThermoWorks also makes the Thermapen, your favorite cooking thermometer, so you know your turkey is in good hands.
The massive mise en place of Thanksgiving is bearing down upon us. If you don’t own a quality cutting board, do yourself a favor and pick up this Epicurean Kitchen Series Cutting Board for just $16 at Amazon. It’s low maintenance — dishwasher safe, and requires no oiling or bleaching — and aesthetically pleasing, earning it a finalist spot in our reader poll on the best cutting boards. There’s no getting around the pun that it’s a cut above.
Bakers, bow before your new idol. KitchenAid’s bonkers new Sifter + Scale attachment bolts onto the front of your KitchenAid, and has a built-in sifter to slowly add dry ingredients to the mixer bowl below. A built-in scale lets you add ingredients in just the right proportions too, while eliminating the need to dirty up extra bowls.
It is, of course, completely unnecessary, but it’s undoubtedly cool, and would make a great gift for anyone that likes to bake. And at $100, it’s also never been cheaper.
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.
Note: We’re expecting to see four-bulb starter kicks for $200 + a $50 gift card from various retailers on Black Friday, so keep that in mind if you need more bulbs.
Apparently yogurt is a thing we should all be making ourselves now, and with this Gourmia Digital Yogurt Maker, now $23 at Amazon, you can become a veritable yogurt mad scientist. Experiment with different mix-ins, flavors, and thicknesses all in one batch — the yogurt maker fits seven included jars at a time — and finally be free from any artificial colors or preservatives that plague your usual foil-lidded yogurt cup.
That love interest of yours might not be so into labels, but we here at The Inventory are very into labels, and label makers, and slapping labels on all the things everywhere. And you don’t even have to have a type-A personality to know the pure, unbridled joy that comes with organizing your life with personalized fancy stickers, because this high-tech Brother Label Maker is down to nearly its lowest price ever at $35 on Amazon. The full keyboard makes it easy to use, and it can print 14 different fonts, 7 font sizes, 600 symbols, and 99 frames—hence why we’d label this a great deal, and your non-committal S.O. a jerk.
You don’t want to spend a bunch of money on a nice mattress, only to instantly ruin it with an untimely wine spill while you watch Sabrina in bed, or even slowly make it gross with your own sweat and grime. No, a mattress protector is a must, and this breathable, dimpled cover from eLux is 20% off for our readers with promo code EKINJA20. That code should work on every size, and it’ll bring the queen model down to $21.
Despite what door-to-door salesmen might tell you, you don’t need a full set of knives. You can breeze through about 99% of kitchen tasks with just a few important blades, and they’re all included in this discounted 4-piece set.
The chef’s knife is one of our readers’ five favorites, and has long been the best value in kitchen knives. The paring and bread knives are pretty self explanatory, and while you could probably get away without owning a utility knife, it is a little more maneuverable than the chef’s knife, and it’s good to have one for chopping vegetables if you’ve been using your main knife on raw meat.
Cooking eggs isn’t exactly rocket science, but I’d say the ability to make soft, medium, and hard boiled eggs, plus omelettes and poached eggs at the touch of a button is worth $15. The Dash is Amazon’s top-selling egg cooker, and carries a truly stellar 4.4 star review average from over 7,000 customers, so get it while it’s on sale for its best price of the year.
Note: Usually, these sales are only for one color, but as of the time of this writing, you can pick from any of them.
Home and/or car improvement is a process that never really ends. Keep your momentum going with a bunch of new supplies from AmazonBasics. Their current sale includes everything from replacement refrigerator water filters to wheel brushes.
Wayfair’s massive holiday sale just went live, and in addition to deals on holiday decor like 5-for-$25 ornaments and artificial Christmas trees, you’ll find wide-ranging deals on furniture that you’ll use all year long. We’re talking rugs starting under $15, furniture for every corner of your bedroom, and dining furniture to fit any style of decor. Every order over $49 ships for free, so this is a great chance to give your home a bit of a refresh.
Most air fryers take up a ton of counter space, but Dash’s 1.2 L model is perfectly sized for small apartment kitchens. It probably shouldn’t be your first choice if you’re cooking for a family, but for one or two people people, it can crisp up more than enough french fries, chicken wings, or anything else.
If you aren’t familiar, air fryers use hot air and convection to achieve the crispiness of deep frying, but without any oil. That means your food is healthier, and your apartment doesn’t smell like the back of a Burger King for four days. Today’s $40 price tag is a match for an all-time low, so don’t let this deal overcook.
Vacuum insulated stainless steel is almost always the right choice for carrying your beverage of choice, whether it’s hot or cold. That’s Manna Hydration’s specialty, and all of their products, from koozies to tumblers to 64 ounce growlers, can keep drinks at a stable temperature for hours on end, while insulating your hand from temperature extremes.
For a limited time, you can save 30% on all of their products on Amazon with our exclusive KINJA2018 promo code. Just be sure to choose Manna Hydration as the seller on the individual product page; the code won’t work with other third party sellers.
Life is full of conflicting desires. Like, you don’t want to sacrifice valuable kitchen counter space to ugly, bulky appliances, but you also don’t want to have to dig your coffee maker out of the cabinet every morning when you wake up. A task like that is not meant to be taken on before you’re caffeinated.
Behold the Keurig K-Compact K-Cup Coffee Maker for just $50 at Walmart. It’s sleek enough to be tolerable as a kitchen fixture, and it’s also available in red and turquoise, if you dig colorful appliances as a decor choice. Does it make coffee as good as an Aeropress or a a $1,000 DeLonghi? No. But it takes like a minute and you have to push one button, which is a perfectly valid trade off.
Free bacon. Forever. Do I have your attention?
Butcher Box ships grass fed beef, heritage grade pork, and free range chicken right to your door for less than $6 per serving, and if you sign up with our exclusive link, you’ll get $10 off your first box, plus a FREE pack of uncured bacon in every box for the life of your subscription. Think of all you could do with an extra pack of bacon every month.
Your reader-exclusive bonuses come bundled with any of Butcher Box’s pre-selected boxes, which are priced at $129 for 24 servings, or $238 for 48 servings, which can be delivered every 30 or 60 days. For a nominal surcharge, you can also build a completely custom box, with your choices of proteins.
Note: You’ll have to enter your email at the beginning of the process. I know, it’s annoying.
Trekking out to the Christmas tree farm is fun, but you know what’s even more fun? Saving money on your tree. Groupon is here to conserve your Christmas cash this year by taking pre-orders on a few festive options, all for about half-off, including a 6-Foot Premium Fraser Fir Tree for $80, a 22-inch Fraser Fir Wreath for $35, a Fraser Fir tree-wreath combo for $95, and a 6-Foot Snow-Tip Black Hills Spruce for $80. They’ll be shipped right to your front door starting on November 27 for maximum Christmastime freshness, but saving all that green on a tree is what will really make this holiday season merry and bright.
For as long as humans have been fermenting grapes, wine has always been an “indoor” beverage. If you want to enjoy wine on the go, you’ve got a pack a big, breakable bottle, a corkscrew, and glasses. There’s an entire cottage industry dedicated to making the practice slightly less inconvenient. Here’s a better idea: just drink wine from a can, dummy!
The Drop is an online wine club that makes and sells its own canned wine, and our readers can save $20 on their first 24-pack with promo code KINJA20 by signing up for a subscription. By default, you’ll get eight cans each of red, white, and my personal favorite, rosé, but you can also customize the mix to your liking. Each can holds 1.7 glasses, or 1/3 of a bottle, making this deal essentially eight bottles of wine for $47. You don’t need to be a math whiz to know that’s a great deal.
If you stay on as a member, you’ll get a new box every month for $67 with free shipping, which still comes out to just over $8 per “bottle.” If you’ve got too many cans piling up, you can also skip a month or flat out cancel your subscription at any time.
AmazonBasics makes pretty much everything at this point, and generally speaking, it’s a brand you can count on to be affordable and of good quality. While Amazon runs discounts on individual AmazonBasics products with some regularity, a whole bunch of it is on sale right now.
A few favorites are below, but dozens of other products are included, so head over to Amazon to see the full list.
Firstleaf is an online wine club that learns your preferences, offers tons of options, and most importantly, saves you money compared to buying from the store. It’s a solid deal any time, but it’s even better for our readers today.
Every new Firstleaf member gets an introductory delivery with three bottles of wine for just $15, plus $5 shipping. Considering that you aren’t locked in and can cancel any time, that’s a bargain. But it gets even better for our readers, as promo code Kinja will waive the $5 shipping charge, for a limited time. That’s three bottles of wine (all of mine had MSRPs over $20) for just $5 each shipped, with no commitment.
You can read more about the service in my review, but if you choose to remain a member (I did), every box thereafter includes six bottles for $80, plus $10 shipping.
Well isn’t this lucky: Bohemian-cool retailer Lucky Brand is offering a pair of winning deals: an extra 50% off of their already marked-down sale section, and 40% off all their regular-priced items. So take advantage of this blowout to add to your supply of good jeans, vintage-y tees, and plenty of fall styles. Don’t press your luck by waiting too long, though; today’s the last day to get lucky with this deal.
Tory Burch flats are the real work shoe MVP (OK, OK, all-around MVP), and today, thanks to Nordstrom Rack, you can stock up on any styles that your footwear collection might be lacking. A multitude of multicolored Tory Burch footwear, including several flat styles, boots, mules, loafers, pumps, and sneakers, are up to 70% off. It’s a sale event so good, finding something you love is a shoo-in.
We’ve featured several Mynt massaging products here over the past year, and now, three of them are on sale in Amazon’s Gold Box, today only.
The most popular product in the sale will almost surely be this heated massage pillow, now available for just $28 down from its usual $40. Its four rotating nodes can massage any part of your body in pretty much any location, and it even includes a car charger so you can use it on the road.
For a more intense experience for your shoulders, consider this model for $35. It includes arm straps to help you apply pressure, and eight massage nodes with multiple modes.
And if your feet need a treat, go for this heated foot massager for $140, which has an air pressure feature and up to 20 customizable combinations.
I don’t meant to make you tense up, but these prices are only available today. During their last Gold Box, a few products sold out early as well.
If you need to stock up on cold weather workout gear, the latest Under Armour Outlet sale offers a ton of flexibility. Just add $100 worth of already-discounted gear to your cart ($100 goes a long way here), add promo code TAKE30, and you’ll get $30 off. Sweatpants, zip-ups, underwear, leggings, socks, and a lot more are included, so you don’t have any excuse not to go for a run outside this winter.
Daylight Saving Time is over, which means that you won’t see sunlight except through your office window for approximately four months. So if you’re commuting home, going for an evening jog, or doing anything else near roads, you’ll want to snag this Nite Ize magnetic LED clip today for an all-time low $5. The built in magnets allow it to clip onto clothes, hats, or bags, and the four bright LEDs run for up to 70 hours on the easily replaceable CR2032 battery.
The Honest Company is all about transparency and safe, natural products, and today, you can snag several offerings from their beauty and skincare line for a discount. A bunch of Honest Beauty products — everything from gel cleanser and facial oil to glow powder and makeup wipes — are on sale at Amazon for under $20. To be honest, you should probably head there now to stock up before this deal is cleaned out.
We’re moving at alarming speeds toward mid-November, so chances are, you could use a jacket, or a vest, or at least some warm workout gear right about now. So head over to socially responsible outdoor retailer Cotopaxi, where you can take 20% off a full-priced item with promo code AMIGOS20. Much of the qualifying gear, including travel packs and windbreakers, doesn’t ever go on sale, so take advantage of this discount today, before this sale event heads out for good.
The family that hydrates together, stays together. Now you can outfit yourself and your outdoorsmen-in-training with CamelBaks, the most efficient, hands-free water bottle in the wild. The CamelBak HydroBak is on sale for $37 in four colors on Amazon, as is its kids’ counterpart, the CamelBak Kids Mini M.U.L.E., also $37. Get your packs before these prices are hiked up again.
If you like the idea of owning a treadmill, but you don’t have the space in your home or apartment, Treadly is the excuse you need to finally buy one. At only 5″ thick, it’s slim enough to slide under your bed when not in use, and at 64 pounds, you can move it around your house and set it up in front of your TV to get a little exercise during your downtime.
The tradeoff is that the belt maxes out at 5 mph, so this is more of a walking treadmill, but it can automatically adjust its speed based on your position on the belt, which is a nice trick. If Treadly would suit your needs, promo code KJTREAD will save you an extra $180 at Daily Steals, bringing it down to $720.
First, let’s talk about Suave’s leather. They say it’s tanne with natural bark extracts, and that only 5% of tanners use this method. I don’t really know anything about tanning, but I do know that the sample they sent me featured some of the softest leather I’ve ever felt. It looked brand new, but felt like it’d been broken in for 10 years.
Inside, you’ll find room for up to 13 cards with elastic pull tabs for easy access, dedicated pockets for SD cards, microSD cards, and a house key, plenty of space for bills, and even a zippered pocket for coins and other small valuables. It sounds very much like a “dad” wallet, but it’s surprisingly thin and intelligently organized, and could easily fit into most front pockets.
The Suave was recently fully funded on Kickstarter, and is now continuing to take preorders via Indiegogo, with estimated delivery in January. It usually sells for $109, but if you use this link, you’ll see a Kinja Deals-exclusive $74 option. That’ll leave you with more money to store in the wallet once you receive it.
Japanese skincare brand Tatcha uses gentle, simple ingredients to achieve especially glowy results — but that luxe-looking glow doesn’t come without an equally luxe price tag. Today, though, Tatcha is taking 20% off their entire site with promo code FRIENDS18, so it’s time to stock up.
The Water Cream is a best seller (Sephora has struggled to keep it in stock in the past), as is their Rice Polish. Their Essence has also received rave reviews; it’s meant to be used just after cleansing, before applying any other skincare products in order to facilitate maximum absorption. I’m personally a big fan of the Indigo Cream, a miracle product containing colloidal oatmeal meant for those with sensitive skin.
Update: This sale is still going strong, but REI just posted a new set of “Peak Deals,” which are discounted up to 50%, but have very limited quantities. Check those out first, then dive into the rest of the sale.
REI famously opts out(side) of Black Friday, but instead runs one of their biggest sales of the year leading up to Thanksgiving. It’s a distinction without a difference, and it’s live now.
As part of their Gear Up Get Out sale, the outdoor superstore is offering up to 30% off on select gear and clothing — including all their best stuff. Our readers’ favorite men’s socks, puffy jackets, and raincoats are just a few of the great clothing buys currently up for grabs. In terms of tech, there’s a $60 gift card available with the latest GoPro, which is the same deal we’re expecting elsewhere on Black Friday.
Don’t wait too long to bring in your haul. Everything from apparel to outdoor adventurers’ must-haves are sure to go quick, and by November 19, this sale will be off into the wild blue yonder.
All blazers (including, somewhat inexplicably, dinner jackets) are $219 with promo code BLKFRI, and the chinos come in at two pairs for $129 with the same BLKFRI code (normally $79 each). The best part? You still get to go through Indochino’s famous customization process, and pick your preferences for everything from pocket angles to hem designs to jacket liners.
Clear out some closet space: Nordstrom ushering in Black Friday with a totally separate, but still very good Fall Sale. The department store is taking up to 40% off an expansive range of items for both men and women, including regular and designer apparel, shoes, accessories, cosmetics, and home goods. But don’t waste any time; just like leaves in winter, this sale will be gone by November 18.
If you’re ever planning to leave your home this winter, L.L.Bean is what you want to be wearing when you do it. The outdoorsy brand is taking 25% off all orders with promo code FALL25 in an effort to keep you cozy, when you should be feeling just plain cold. So now’s the time to stockpile Bean Boots, Wicked Good Slippers, and whatever other gear your closets can hold.
Winter is all about layers on layers on layers — and Patagonia has vests, puffers, pullovers, and zip-ups galore, all of which are great for wearing alone on warmer days or all at once when it’s an arctic tundra outside. Right now, the winterwear purveyors are taking up to 50% off their Web Specials section until November 21. So it would behoove you to pile everything you can into your cart ASAP, so you can pile everything onto yourself in the cold months to come.
Do you aim to misbehave? Then this shiny Firefly 15th Anniversary Collector’s Edition Blu-ray Set will fit right in on your boat. (Disappointingly, there’s no new watchable content, but while the best show in the Verse deserved better, isn’t that about par for the course?)
Available at Walmart and Amazon for $13, it does come with a few collectible items and fancy packaging. But the real treasure is the episodes themselves, showcasing the carefree days when [spoiler] and [spoiler] were still alive. No, it’s fine. We’re not still upset about fictional characters’ deaths…
The second installment of the Fantastic Beasts franchise, The Crimes of Grindelwald, hits theaters this week, so there’s never been a better time to catch up on the classic Harry Potter films. And — Merlin’s beard! — it seems they’re available now on Blu-ray at Amazon for just 40 galleons, er, dollars. Act fast to snag this deal, unless you have a time turner, in which case, no rush.
Even if you aren’t usually into anime, it’s worth giving Cowboy Bebop a try, especially when you can get the entire series for a mere $10. This deal is through Amazon’s digital video storefront, and includes all 26 episodes in HD, which normally sell for $3 each.
Evan Amos’ Wikipedia-famous game console photography makes for a stunning coffee table book, and it’s down to an all-time low price on Amazon right now. Featuring 300 pages of full color photography spanning the entire history of video games, it also gives you a rare look inside some iconic consoles.
The $17 list price is already the best Amazon’s ever listed, and the $1 coupon on the page makes it even cheaper at checkout.
At $8 per month for Prime members, Amazon Music Unlimited was already more affordable than Spotify Premium or Apple Music, but Amazon’s sweetening the pot for new members by offering four months for free, if you have an Amazon Echo device tied to your account.
This is the best deal they’ve ever offered on the service, and it’s even available to non-Prime members. If you have an Echo and you’ve never been a Music Unlimited subscriber, there’s no reason not to sign up.
Love to read but don’t have the time to sit down and actually read a book? Sign up for Amazon’s audiobook service, Audible, during this extended trial offer for Prime members.
For a limited time, Prime members can get three months of the service for free, rather than the typical one-month trial. That entitles you to a new book of your choice each month, plus two free Audible originals of your choice. Plus, every book you choose is yours to keep, even if you cancel. The offer is available to new subscribers only.
Note: After the three month trial ends, you’ll automatically be charged $15 per month, so be sure to cancel if you don’t like it.
We have every indication that $40 is going to be the going rate for Xbox One (and PS4) controllers this Black Friday, but today only, eBay’s blowing out Xbox One S gamepads for $35, which is about as good a deal as we’ve ever seen. Why wait?
Always a surefire holiday hit, LEGO’s Star Wars Advent calendar features 24 tiny Star Wars-themed LEGO gifts, including brand new ones for 2018 like a snowman in a Rebellion helmet, a Rose minifig, and tons of miniaturized spaceships and speeders. It MSRPs for $40, but Amazon’s got it marked down to under $34 right now. You can start opening it in just a few short weeks, and it might not get cheaper before then.
Do you find the pressure of specific creation stifling? Are you overwhelmed by the array of LEGO sets designed to build predefined castles or spaceships or bridges? LEGO totally gets that. The LEGO Classic Bricks on a Roll 60th Anniversary Limited Edition Set, $25 at Walmart, features an assortment of wheels, bricks, and for some reason, eyes. Paired with the LEGO Classic Ocean’s Bottom Set ($20 at Walmart or Amazon), it allows you to craft whatever weird and random objects your heart desires. A dog on a skateboard? Yep. An octopus chef? Sure! A double decker couch? Eh…
For today only, Amazon has ride-on toys starting at $39. On one hand, this is an excellent chance to get your Christmas shopping started early. But on the other, do you really want your kid to have a sweeter ride than you? There are miniature Audis and Mercedes! Someone is missing out on a great business opportunity by not making Power Wheels for adults. (Be honest with yourself — real cars just aren’t as much fun.)
In the olden times, like 2012ish, toys were designed for playing. Removing the packaging was agony, the final obstacle between you and your new plaything. But in our brave new YouTube-influenced world, the unboxing has become the whole point.
Thanks to this redefinition of fun, you can nab the L.O.L. Surprise! Bigger Surprise for $79 at Walmart or Amazon. With more than 60 surprises to unwrap and discover, it’ll last longer than any blind bag or surprise egg. And there’s even a small (infinitesimal, but not nonexistent) chance that the dolls and their accessories will get some playtime once the mystery is gone.
Pop quiz: Which is the correct term, ping pong or table tennis? It’s actually a trick question with a complicated answer — they’re different games, or maybe they’re not, depending on who you ask — but what’s not complicated is today’s Amazon sale on JOOLA ping pong gear. It features several strong price drops and even one all-time low (this retractable net for $10), so your domicile can finally become the pingy pongy party destination you’ve always dreamed of. We’ve even got the first song for your playlist.
Why walk when you can roll? Razor’s A Kick Scooters have been a classic in the (non-motorized) scooter game for years, but today, green, pink, and red versions are just $18 over at Amazon, down from their usual price of $45. So scoot on over and snag one as a holiday gift for the kid in your life — or for yourself, no judgement — before this discount speeds out of here.
If you’re tired of playing Cards Against Humanity with your friends and family over the holidays, CoolCats and AssHats is an equally inappropriate option, and it’s only $20 today with promo code 20COOLCAT.
As they describe it, the game is like if “the Newlywed Game, Truth or Dare, and Cards Against Humanity had a pretty awesome threesome,” and unlike a lot of games like this, it’s easy to remove the “adult” cards if you want to play a SFW version with kids or coworkers.
Like the cartoon shows from your childhood, Paw Patrol is designed to sell toys, and you can make sure your younglings never experience the disappointment you felt about not getting an awesome Castle Grayskull for Christmas by having this 32″ Paw Patrol Tower under the tree. For just $70 (also at Amazon), you can purchase your child’s happiness!
This Toy of the Year Award winner features lights and sounds, and the vehicle launcher means that Paw Patrol can literally be on a roll. Only Chase is on the case with an included car, but most 5.5” and 6″ Paw Patrol vehicles are compatible, so perhaps the truckless Marshall figure that comes with the tower can get fired up in one that already resides in the playroom. Otherwise, he’ll be stuck relying on his Pup Pack.
$12 is cheaper than a lot of standard sized mouse pads, but today, that gets you a massive 3′ wide model that can accommodate your keyboard as well. Just be sure to use promo code AUKEY33K at checkout to save a few bucks.
