Modems are tricky, because some ISPs make it pretty difficult for you to provide your own and you’ll need to make sure if these Arris models (currently at their lowest prices ever) are compatible with your plan.

I’ve included a few Lifehacker stories below to help you figure it out:

#2 emirates

Go take a look at your international travel bucket list, because there’s a pretty good chance one of those destinations is included in Emirates’ big International Sale.

The best way to sort through the best deals is to select your departure airport from the dropdown menu on this page (13 U.S. airports are included), leave the destination blank, and hit search. You’ll then see a list of the best economy and business class fares, and you can also drill down on the available inventory with the search tools to only see fares for certain months, or in certain price ranges.

The cheapest flight we saw was from JFK to Milan for $459 roundtrip, but as you’d expect from Emirates, there are also lots of options to far-flung destinations in the middle east, Asia, and Africa as well.

These fares are available (while supplies last, obviously) until August 23, so I suggest finding a cheap flight you want now, and figuring out the rest of your vacation details later.

#3 edifier speakers

Edifier quietly makes some of the best audio equipment on the market. And right now, Amazon is lowering the price on two bookshelf speakers: Edifier R1280T and the Edifier R1280DB. The big difference between the two is that the Edifier R1280DB offers more options to connect, including Bluetooth. So, it may be weird, but I’d go with the cheaper one if you just want to pair it with a record player.

Just remember, these prices will only stick around for the day or until sold out.

#4 usb-c cable

#6 KitchenAid pasta roller

You could live your whole life cooking boxed Barilla pasta, and never once realize how fun and rewarding it can be to make your own. This Kitchenaid pasta roller and cutter set attaches to the accessory port on any KitchenAid mixer, and lets you create your own noodles with multiple shapes in just minutes. $108 is a full $52 less than Amazon’s current price, so I’d call this deal <kisses fingers like an Italian chef> delizioso.
