Anker makes a smart plug now, because Anker makes everything, and today it’s discounted to just $14, $6 less than it was for Cyber Monday. Like pretty much all of these things, you can control or schedule it with both your phone and with Alexa, and its built-in energy monitoring is a great feature at this price.
Twelve South’s HiRise is one of the most beautiful ways to prop up and charge your iPhone, iPad Mini, or Apple TV remote, and you can pick one up for just $30 today. Just note that it’s designed specifically for the official Apple Lightning cable, so you’ll need to find a spare.
If you own a Qi-compatible phone, this discounted wireless charger (with code INPWJBQV) will support your device’s fastest possible wireless charging speed. The stand itself is identical for both deals below, but the $24 version (with code YPPTF8BO) includes a Quick Charge 3.0 wall charger, which is overkill if you’re using this for an iPhone, but great if you have a compatible Android device.
You can still get an Echo Dot for $40 as part of Amazon’s Valentine’s Day deals, but if you’re looking to stock up and put them all around your house, it might be worth saving an extra $5 by buying refurbished.
If you need an awesome Valentine’s Day gift for the Apple lover in your life, even if that person is yourself, we’ve got the first discounts ever on a pair of great products from Elevation Lab.
First up, iMac users can save 20% on the ElevationStand with code ELABKINJA888, which raises any modern iMac to a more ergonomic height, and is designed to perfectly match the brushed aluminum stand of Apple’s all-in-ones. Plus, the hollowed out space in the middle of the stand is perfect for hiding cables, external hard drives, and other things you’d rather not have to look at all day.
Also on sale for 20% off (with code ELABKINJA777) is DraftTable, the best iPad Pro stand designed specifically for artists. It holds the tablet steady at a variety of different angles for a more ergonomic drawing experience, and you can even get it bundled with an arm rest and Apple Pencil holder for $16 extra. It’s a desk stand, not a case, so it should work with all sizes of iPads.
There are only a handful of USB battery packs out there with USB-C Power Delivery, and this is one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on one of them.
$54 gets you RAVPower’s 26,800mAh battery pack (with code KINPB058), 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. That should be enough power to get you through pretty much any long flight.
Here, in 2018, it only makes sense for power strips to include USB ports. You can save on two different options from Aukey today, one with four AC outlets and four USBs ($16 with code AUKEYAS8), and another with eight outlets, but only two USBs, plus surge protection ($22 with code AUKEYAD2). Either way, these would be great to stick behind your desk or your nightstand.
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 $375 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.
Elevation Lab’s Anchor headphone stand is so simple, but so genius, that it really ought to be built into every desk in existence. Nominally, it’s a hook to store your headphones so they don’t take up desk space, but you could also use it for hats, jackets, umbrellas, or really anything else that hangs.
The Anchor doesn’t see discounts often, but for a limited time, you can save 10% with promo code ELABKINJA999.
If you’re getting a little bored of your current iPhone case, Anker will sell you a new one today for just $5, or a pair of glass screen protectors for $7. The options are split out by device in a dedicated post, just be sure to note the promo codes.
You probably won’t use them for at least a few more months, but these Anker dry bags can protect your phone from surf and sand once it’s finally warm enough to get in the water again. Get two for just $7 today on Amazon, while they last.
Despite its tiny size, the GoPro HERO5 Session includes 4K recording and voice commands just like its bigger sibling (though obviously, it lacks a touchscreen), and you can get a refurb from GoPro’s official eBay storefront for just $170 today. That’s a relatively modest $30 less than buying it new, but you get the exact same manufacturer warranty, so I’d say it’s $30 well saved.
Amazon’s Valentine’s Day device deals just went live, with big savings available on Echoes, Kindles, Fire tablets, and more. I’m not sure they’re the most romantic gifts, but I don’t think anyone’s ever complained about getting a Kindle as a gift. To see them broken out by type, head over here.
$16 (with code TTTTZZZZ) is a pretty good price for a 10,000mAh battery pack. It’s absolutely insane for one with a solar panel and 12-LED flashlight array. Obviously, that little solar panel won’t recharge the battery very quickly, but it can trickle charge it while you’re outdoors, so it’s nice to have.
Update: Today’s the last day!
The Greenco G Pen Elite was already one of the best vaporizers for the money at its usual $150, but for a limited time, you can get it for just $105, or 30% off, with promo code KINJA30.
Or, for just $70 with the same code, you can also opt for the smaller G Pen Pro, which should perform similarly, but with a smaller chamber capacity and less precise temperature adjustment. Either way, these deals aren’t available for long, so get in before they go up in a puff of smoke.
From Gizmodo’s review:
“Pleasant” has come to define much of my time with the Grenco G Pen Elite. It charges quickly via USB and has battery life that last for days of regular use. It also feels great in my tiny hands and fits easily in a coat pocket or a purse. The thing that takes it from “perfectly pleasant” to near outstanding is the price. It’s just $170. That’s damn cheap compared to it’s competitors. The Firefly 2 costs $329.95 and the Crafty retails for $339. Sure those products heat via convection instead of roasting a ceramic chamber, they’re much easier to pull on, and the clouds they produce are enough to fishbowl someone sitting with you, but for nearly half the price the Grenco G Pen Elite is a fantastic deal.
This aluminum Anker stand can prop up your phone or tablet at nine different angles, and it’s only $8 today with promo ANKERSTA. If your phone just sits flat on your desk like a paperweight all day, I see no reason not buy this.
This tiny, $7 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 AUKEYU32 to get the deal.
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 to get a special two year plan for $79 with code 2YSpecial2017, or this link to get three years for $99 with code 3ydeal. Lifehacker has recommended Nord in some previous guides, but if you have any firsthand experience with the service, sound off in the comments!
Top Home Deals
Suck up a solid deal on a Dyson Ball Complete with extra tools from Home Depot today. It’s completely out of stock on Amazon, but it was selling for over $330, so today’s $288 deal likely won’t last long.
Got a lot of shoes? This 10-tier stand will store up to 50 pairs of shoes, and it’s just $21 today after promo code CUFLL2TR, that’s stomping the price down by $9.
Keep all that stuff you can’t get rid out of sight with these discounted storage bins. A 6-pack is only $14 today, down from its usual $20. Teal is the only color option at this price point, but they have some beige and gray if you want to spend a little more.
These $7 gloves let you grab a hot pan out of the oven, pull meat right off a grill, or even turn logs in an active campfire without getting burned, like some kind of kitchen superhero. We’ve seen silicone barbecue gloves for less than this in the past, but these are rated for much higher temperatures, and should be more flexible as well. Use code XJZ2UX6N at checkout.
Pick this 50-count set of these reader-favorite white AmazonBasics hangers for just $11. They’re cheap and won’t create lines on your clothes like wire hangers. The shirt/dress hangers are a great deal, and Amazon has knocked a couple bucks off the black suit hangers too.
Let’s be honest, our pets are the best and we don’t deserve them. So, you might as well further spoil your 4-legged valentine and buy a bunch of treats and food from Jet.com. It’s all 30% off with code FEBRUARYFINDS, so you can really stock up.
As you know, keeping your knives sharp keeps you safer, since you’ll have to use less pressure to slice. A whetstone (or water stone) is how the pros keep their knives in the best shape, and this one is just $11 today, the cheapest it’s been in over 6 months. So, if you’re looking to do your own knife sharpening, get this deal before it’s gone. I would recommend watching a couple of videos on how to do it, if you’ve never tried before.
The computer in your car is a treasure trove of information about gas mileage, engine performance, maintenance issues, and more, but without an OBD2 scanner, most can only communicate with you through the primitive language of dashboard warning lights.
Luckily, three such scanners from Kobra are on sale right now, including some wireless ones that sync to your phone and work with third party apps to track and record anything and everything about your car.
If you haven’t ordered your Valentine’s flowers yet, this is one of the few times where procrastination pays off. For a limited time, you can click this link to get 25% off any ProFlowers order of $29 or more from this special Valentine’s Day collection.
Options range from your standard roses, to tropical lilies, to combos with teddy bears and chocolate, so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding the right bouquet. Plus, nearly every option comes with a variety of vase options (most with reasonable upcharges), and the 25% coupon will apply to those as well. There’s no need to enter a promo code, the discount should apply automatically when you get to checkout.
There are seemingly dozens of internet mattress companies these days, but Eight Sleep sets itself apart by piling on smart features, and you can try out any of their mattresses for $50 off, plus two free pillows, with promo code PRESIDENT50.
The mattresses themselves are basically what you’ve come to expect from internet mattresses these days: They’re blocks built from multiple layers of different types of foam. With Eight Sleep though, you do get to pick from three different tiers, including one with innersprings that should be more breathable. Whichever mattress you choose, you’ll probably like it just fine, and if you don’t like it, Eight Sleep offers the industry standard 100 night trial period, so you can return it for any reason.
Eight Sleep’s real magic comes from its unique mattress cover, which has smart features built in that you’ll actually want to use. It can track your restfulness, heart rate, and other sleep stats independently for each side of the bed, wake you up with a smart alarm when you’re not deep in a REM cycle, and even integrate with other smart home appliances. So you could conceivably change your thermostat temperature automatically when you get into bed, and start brewing coffee whenever you’re about to wake up.
The best feature though, without question, is dual zone temperature control. Yes, the mattress pad doubles as a smartphone-connected electric blanket to warm each side of the bed independently, which will really come in handy for the rest of winter.
Give a Larabars a try with this variety box, just $18 after the $5 off coupon. If you’re unfamiliar with Larabars, they’re gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, vegan bars, mostly made from dates. This brand has a bunch of interesting flavors, blueberry muffin is my personal favorite, and this variety box is a good option if you aren’t ready to commit to a big box of one flavor.
As always, you can save a little more when you Subscribe & Save, just remember to cancel your next shipment if you don’t want it.
You don’t need a yard, or even any gardening skills to grow your own food at home; you just need a Click and Grow countertop garden. This garden contains NASA-inspired smart soil and can grow herbs, vegetables, and salad greens, and it’s 25% off for Valentine’s Day with code GARDENOFLOVE25.
To start growing you simply pop in the seed pods, pour in some water, and the machine does the rest. This Smart Garden has accommodations for three plants and includes seed pods to get you started. So start growing your own garden, or gift to an aspiring green thumb.
Wool dryer balls are the hottest laundry invention of the decade, and you can get six of them for $8 today with promo code 799yzyzy.

Yeah, diamonds are nice, but if you buy your valentine something a little more casual, they’ll most likely get much more use of it (plus, of course, it’ll cost you way less).

Vertical is always the way to go. Get this PS4 Slim vertical stand for just $13 after promo code 7HEQPCDN.
As Nintendo Switch deals go, this is about as good as we’ve seen so far. Walmart will sell you a Switch for its $300 MSRP, and toss in a copy of FIFA 18 for free. After the console turns one year old, we hope we’ll see more bundle deals, and maybe even modest discounts, but hey, who can complain about FIFA on the go?
The latest Humble Bundle has a pretty enticing theme: The best games from last year’s bundles. Name your own price for the likes of Dead By Daylight, Verdun, Turmoil, and more. Just $10 unlocks all of the games, but any donation at all unlocks the first tier.
Plus, if you’re a Humble Monthly subscriber (which you should be), buying the $10 tier will also get you a $2 Humble Wallet credit.
It’s not quite as exciting as Civilization VI and Owlboy (and eventually Life Is Strange and Tacoma) like last month, but Dark Souls III and its Ashes of Ariandel DLC are a solid start to next month’s Humble Monthly.
If you aren’t familiar, Humble Monthly is a $12/month subscription (or less if you purchase multiple months in advance) that unlocks a handful of games at the beginning of the month, plus more mystery games at the end of it. Even if you cancel, every game you’ve downloaded is yours to keep forever, making this one of the best deals in PC gaming.
