TCL’s affordable 6-series TVs are famous for offering every form of HDR (including top-shelf Dolby Vision), local dimming zones for better contrast and black levels, and even excellent Roku software. So if you want to upgrade for all of the new fall TV shows, or just your nightly Netflix coma, the 65″ is down to $460 right now, if you can live with a refurb of last year’s model.
$460 is a really good price for just about any 65″ TV, let alone one with local dimming and Dolby Vision. It also comes with a 90 day warranty to ease your concerns, in case anything’s extra wonky.

Anker’s diminutive Soundcore Mini 2 Bluetooth speakers aren’t going to knock your socks off, but they punch above their weight in terms of sound quality and features, and you can get two of them for $35 with promo code KINJAB3107.
Why two? In addition to just using them as two separate and distinct speakers, you can also choose to pair them to each other for true stereo sound from a single audio source. There are lots of speakers that do that these days, but not many of them are this small or this affordable.
You also get IPX78 water-resistance, Anker’s BassUp mode for enhanced low ends on demand, and even a surprisingly robust 15 hours of battery life.

Anker’s portable projectors are pretty great on-the-go cinemas, but as we’ve covered before, there’s a yawning gap between the company’s original Nebula Capsule and the new Nebula Capsule II and Capsule Max. A new mid-range entry in the line aims to change that.
Anker’s Nebula Capsule II Portable Projector Is Brighter, Sharper and Smarter, For a Price
Anker’s original Nebula Capsule ushered in a sea change in the nascent portable projector market.…
Read more Read
Eschewing the can-shaped design of the rest of the capsules in favor of a more rectangular profile, the Nebula Apollo is essentially an original Nebula Capsule, but with the Capsule II’s 200 ANSI lumens of brightness, compared to the Capsule’s 100. It has the same (somewhat outdated) Android OS, the same 480p standard definition sensor, and the same connections and screen mirroring support. The picture quality won’t blow anyone away, but it’s perfectly sufficient for an outdoor movie, and the added brightness should go a long way towards making the image pop.
At its $380 MSRP, it’s priced right between the $300 Capsule and the $470 Capsule Max with its 720p sensor, but for a limited time, you can get it for $330 at launch with promo code APOLLOGO.

Sony is the maker of the most innovative, best cameras on the market, and right now you can pick up the Sony a7 III for $200 less, with and without the kit lens.

As a full-frame mirrorless camera, it’s both more portable than your standard DSLR but with the same power. While it won’t shoot as quickly as the a7 RIII or pack as many pixels, only the most persnickety of shooters can really tell the difference.
For most people, the a7 III captures the best parts of the a7 RIII but at a fraction of the cost. And while it’s still a little pricey at $1,800 and $2,000 respectively, those who know what it’s capable of, know what a great value this is.

You don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars to enjoy the benefits of noise canceling headphones: These TaoTronics noise canceling over-ears are down to just $23 (twenty three dollars!) today with promo code UQ8LNL7F when you also clip the $5 coupon on the page.
I’ve actually tried these, and while the ANC isn’t as impressive as what you’d get from Sony or Bose, it definitely works, especially against consistent noises like fans or airplane engines. They’re also extremely comfortable, and fold up for easy storage. $23 is an absolute steal, is what I’m saying, and they’d make a fine gift as well.

The wall charger that came with your phone just doesn’t cut it while traveling these days. In addition to probably being slow as hell, you likely have at least two or three USB-powered devices that you’ll want to charge every night while you sleep.
Luckily, Anker stuffed four USB ports and 40W of power into a tiny travel charger (with folding AC prongs!), and you can get it for $21 today on Amazon, which is within a couple of bucks off the best price we’ve seen, no promo code required.
Right now, this AUKEY 36W USB-C PD car charger can be yours for just $10. Just clip the coupon code on the page and you’ll get the best price on this super helpful accessory. This particular plug offers fast, 18W charging through its USB-C and standard USB port.

It’s back! One of Butcher Box’s most popular welcome offers is hitting the griddle once again, and new customers can get two pounds of free ground beef added to every box for the life of their membership. That’s like eight free burgers every month, or a bunch of tacos, or a big bowl of spaghetti and meatballs. Just don’t forget the spicy ketchup.

Note: You’ll have to enter your email at the beginning of the process. I know, it’s annoying.
With a whopping 900 lumens of brightness, a rechargeable battery, a zoomable beam, and IP65 dust and water resistance, Anker’s LC90 flashlight is enough flashlight for just about everyone. And with those specs, it’s a steal at $20, down from the usual $28.
To give you a little context about the brightness here, your smartphone’s flashlight probably puts out about 40-60 lumens. Again, this has 900. Don’t look directly at it.

Decent robotic vacuums have been knocking on the sub-$100 door for awhile, but today’s Amazon Gold Box is one of the first times we’ve seen then break through that impulse buy barrier.
Three different models from Coredy are included in the sale, starting at $96 for a basic model with impressive 1400pA suction. For just $4 more, you can step up to a model that can also mop hard floors, or you can get a more powerful vacuum with included boundary strips (to keep it away from cords, pet water bowls, and the like) for $138. All three deals are only available today, and could sell out early, so lock in your order before they’re all hoovered up.

It might look like something Rey would wear while scouring for spare parts on Jakku, but this neck wrap is actually a travel pillow, and a great one at that.

The Trtl pillow uses a hidden ribs to support your neck as you doze off in your tiny coach airline seat. Just wrap Trtl around your neck, placing the ribs on whichever side you want to lay your head (including directly under your chin) pop on some noise-cancelling headphones, and try your darnedest to get some shut-eye.
In case it wasn’t obvious, the big advantage of this design is size; Trtl weighs less than 1/3 of a pound, can attach to your luggage, and is far less bulky than a memory foam pillow. Right now, you can get the pillow for an all-time low of $19 today at Woot.
Normally, you pay a premium to buy snacks in single-serve bags, but that’s not really the case with a couple of deals on Amazon today.

In both cases, you’ll need to clip the 30% coupon and use Subscribe & Save to maximize your savings.
I got the Sun Chips myself, and it’s going to take a tremendous amount of willpower to only eat one bag at a time.

We don’t all have an extra room in our homes to use as a gym, but the BodyBoss 2.0 is a flexible, resistance band-based system that can simulate almost any gym workout in even a tiny apartment. It raised over $1,000,000 through crowdfunding, and now, you can buy it from Amazon for the best price we’ve ever seen.
The deal is available for sets with two and four included bands, but the four-band set is only $1 more, and doubling the bands means doubling your resistance, so I’d probably get that one unless it sells out (and BodyBoss deals always sell out).

If you love board games, you owe it to yourself to buy Betrayal Legacy, especially when it’s on sale.
Betrayal Legacy Is Long-Form Board Gaming At Its Best
Betrayal at House On the Hill is a modern classic board game that’s different every time you play…
Read more Read
The game is the Legacy version of the popular Betrayal at House on the Hill, and takes place before the events of the original game, fleshing out its backstory while giving you the freedom to craft that story through your play.
1266 bought by readersGMG may get a commission
Here’s what Eric Ravenscraft had to say about the game on The Inventory:
With each successive chapter, you unlock new rules, discover new secrets, and unfold the tale of the world’s most haunted mansion. Legacy games in general have a sense of permanence to them. You’ll have to destroy certain cards or make permanent alterations that might make the obsessive game collector cringe.
What you’re left with at the end, though, is a tale (and a game) that’s thoroughly yours. Once you’ve finished the story chapters, the game can be played as much as you want just like a normal Betrayal game. Your copy will have unique traits that no other copy has. And now, you know the deep and disturbing history of every tile, every item, and every body haunting the house on the hill.
$54 is about $6 less than the usual going rate over the last few months, and within $5 of the best deal we’ve seen. It includes a prologue and 13 chapters, each of which should take about 75 minutes to play through. And once you’re done with the Legacy campaign, you’ll be left with a fully functional (but totally unique to you) Betrayal game that you can continue to play.

It didn’t take long for true wireless earbuds to go from high-priced status symbols to affordable Amazon commodities, but here we are. TaoTronics’ SoundLiberty 53 headphones feature IPX7 waterproofing, five hours of battery life (and 40 if you include the charging case), and perhaps most impressively of all, Bluetooth 5.0 for a stable connection.
They’re a solid package for the usual $45, but for $30 (with promo code KINJA78B) it really might be time to cut the cord for good.

An essential tool for anyone who ever dabbles in electrical work, Sperry’s outlet tester uses a series of three lights and an easy-to-read chart to make sure you avoid any shocking surprises. At under $6, it’s within about $1.50 of the best price we’ve seen, but when it’s lower, it’s usually as an Add-On Item. Today’s deal, by contrast, is eligible for Prime Shipping all by itself.

Fisher Space Pen | $7 | AmazonGraphic: Shep McAllister
There’s an old joke that NASA spent millions developing a pen that could write in space, and the Russians used a pencil. Whatever, it was totally worth it. Amazon’s selling the official Fisher space pen for just $7 right now, the best price Amazon’s ever listed. Now, you too can write in zero gravity, in sub-zero temperatures, or even under water.

We haven’t seen much in the way of deals on the new Nintendo Switch with drastically improved battery life, but if you buy it from Walmart right now at MSRP, they’ll throw in a bonus Ematic wired controller for free. That brings you one step closer to throwing an awesome Super Smash Bros. party.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a deceptively expensive game, since you’ll have to budget for some CBD gummies to keep yourself calm, or failing that, for a new TV after you throw your controller through your current one. That being said, the game by itself is down to $40 on PS4 and Xbox One today.

From Kotaku’s review:
The player quickly becomes the butt of that joke, as Sekiro is punishingly difficult. (This should be shocking to roughly no one, given that it’s made by From Software, developer of the infamously challenging Souls games and Bloodborne.) The combat requires real attention to detail and a willingness to drill down on a few sets of possible reactions. Boss and mid-boss battles are a furious interplay of choreographed patterns mixed with improvisation. First you learn an enemy’s moves; then, maybe five or 10 deaths later, the real battle begins. Learning the early boss Lady Butterfly’s attack patterns is that much more satisfying because the presentation is excellent. She moves like a dancer, and her attack animations tell a story.
I found myself deeply immersed in the way these battles worked, obsessing over each animation, every cue, every possible breakaway combination that could happen as a result of my own reactions. Combat in Sekiro is like a dance, but it’s also like a series of the fastest-ever choose-your-own-adventure branches: Parrying this leads to a thrust. Not blocking leads to a sweep. With the addition of shinobi prosthetics and skills, all of which can be upgraded via skill trees, the options open up immensely. As stubborn as Sekiro is in forcing players to learn how each enemy telegraphs its moves, there are still lots of ways to approach each encounter.

Before another commenter yells at me “it isn’t even Halloween, enough Christmas stuff,” sorry friend. LEGO doesn’t care. Christmas shopping starts right now. The LEGO Stars Wars Advent Calendar is 280 pieces and includes 24 mini-figures, like Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca, a Porg, and more. The LEGO Harry Potter Advent Calendar is 305 pieces and includes seven mini-figures (obviously that includes Ron, Harry, and Hermione).
Both calendars are a couple of bucks off today, so you’ll want to get them now before they jack up the price for Christmas.

Your car is a great place for a wireless charger, but if you use GPS, audio streaming, and crank your screen to full brightness while you drive, a 5W Qi charger might not quite keep up with your device’s battery drain.
Enter Anker’s PowerWave, one of the first Qi car mounts to support 7.5W wireless charging for iPhones, the maximum possible speed. It also supports 10W charging for compatible Android phones, though that’s less rare. The catch is that you’ll need a Quick Charge USB car charger to power it, and it’s not included. If your current charger doesn’t include Quick Charge, you can pick up this one for just $11.

If you have any old SSDs lying around, this SATA to USB 3.0 cable can turn them into speedy external drives, with no tools required. Sure, there are plenty of enclosures that will do the same job, but I think it’s kind of cool to be able to see the label of the SSD.

AirPods had their “they look stupid” phase in The Discourse, and then for awhile, they were a meme for wealth. Now, I think they’re just headphones; as invisible as any other headphones. And they’re pretty good ones at that.
In terms of size, fit, and fidgetability, the gen 2 AirPods are the same AirPods that you know and begrudgingly love, but with an upgraded chip that provides Bluetooth 5.0, faster switching between devices, hands-free “Hey Siri” support, and longer battery life when talking on the phone. $169 is a $30 discount, and the best price we’ve seen on the version with the wireless charging case. Don’t need the fancy case? The standard model is also on sale for $144, a $15 discount, and also an all-time low.

This non-coffee drinker bought one of these a couple years ago, and I loved the thing (though admittedly, I have since upgraded to the OXO alternative). All you have to do is fill the basket with ground coffee, fill the container with water, and let it steep overnight in the fridge. The resulting coffee concentrate needs to be watered down, so one batch should last you several days.

Some people can’t live without their coffee, but for me, it’s fizzy water and diet cola, which is why my SodaStream is one of my most cherished possessions.
Today on Amazon, you can get a SodaStream Jet from Amazon for just $60, complete with a free full-sized CO2 canister, and a carbonating bottle to get you started. I’ve owned one of these for years, and it’s paid for itself many times over.

The reason this is a big deal is that you can renew your membership as many times as you want at whatever price you originally paid. Once the prices go back to normal, you’ll still be locked into the lower rate.
Here are the new (old) promotional prices, along with what you’d normally pay:
1 month: $6.95 (down from $9.99)1 year: $39.95 (down from $71.88)
Clearly, the annual plan is the sweet spot here if you don’t want to commit to the three-year plan, but $6.95/month for 10 simultaneous connections, clients for just about every conceivable device, and servers in 32 countries (foreign Netflix, anyone?). We aren’t sure when the prices will go back up, so you probably want to lock in your account ASAP.
