Today’s Best Tech Deals

Rakuten’s running another of its popular site-wide sales today and tomorrow, with 15% off all orders, with a $60 maximum discount with the promo code SAVE15. You can check out their promo page to scan all of the deals, but the beauty of this sale is you can “force” a sale on super new or rarely discounted products, like Triple A titles for the Nintendo Switch like Smash, controllers, and more.

This deal ends tomorrow, but there’s a limited supply on super popular items. So act fast.


Our readers voted Anker’s SoundBuds Slims as their favorite affordable Bluetooth headphones, but we may need a recount, as Anker recently released the upgraded SoundBuds Slim+, on sale for just $22 today with promo code AKSLPLUS.

The biggest change from the original model is the inclusion of AptX encoding, which should improve sound quality with compatible devices. Anker also claims that waterproofing has been improved, though they’re both still rated as IPX5, so any change on that front is likely modest. One thing that hasn’t changed: the seven hour battery, which is excellent for earbuds of this size.

Today’s Best Home Deals

Amazon’s Easter candy Gold Box is offering a ton of candy choices, flowers and gift baskets up to 30% off, which is perfect for the upcoming holiday (or anytime you want an egg-shaped chocolate).

Of course, these discounts will only last until the end of the day, or until sold out, so grab a handful and stock up, Game of Thrones-induced trauma is less than a week away.


Of all the household systems that could be made smart, your hose and sprinklers stand out as particularly well suited to smartphone scheduling, voice control, and automatic weather compensation.

Orbit’s B-hyve smart faucet timer just screws in between your spigot and your hose, and allows you to control the flow through all the typical smart home means, will automatically skip watering your lawn if it’s raining, and can even show you how much water you’ve been using. And at just $47, it’ll surely pay for itself over time.


Spring is here, and Easter is almost up on us — I can’t really think of better reason to buy a bouquet of festive pastel-colored flowers. And beginning today, 1800Flowers is celebrating the upcoming holiday early with 20% off Easter flowers with promo code ESTRBUNNY. Bring home (or gift others) with colorful arrangements featuring plastic Easter eggs, an arrangement in the shape of an Easter egg, or even an Easter bunny comprised of carnations, plus a few baskets of sweet Easter treats. Just be sure to take advantage of this deal before it hops away.


Right now, Amazon’s running a huge sale on Sylvania lighting gear. All manner of shapes, temperature and intelligence are represented here. And yes, there are smart lighting options available.

And, boy, are there bargains here. I think the 4-packs on ceiling lights and soft whites are especially attractive.

So, let there be light, etc. (Until the end of day when the discounts disappear, of course.) Make sure to visit the main page to see all of your options.

Today’s Best Lifestyle Deals

The most coveted brands are also often the most expensive, but now at Backcountry, you can take an up to 70% off select apparel and gear from the big brands you know and love, including Patagonia, Mammut, MSR, and Backcountry brand. In case you’ve been off on some isolated peak somewhere, today’s the last day to take 20% off one full-price item with promo code TAKE20MARCH. So go ahead and check out so you can get outside and use your new stuff.


Hanes’ ComfortFlex boxer briefs aren’t incredibly flattering, and unlike more technical boxer briefs from the likes of ExOfficio, you can’t like, rinse them in a river and wear them for a month straight while you backpack through South America. But they’re solid, comfortable, everyday boxer briefs, and a terrific value at just over $2 per pair.

This 7-pack is within a few cents of the best price we’ve seen, so it’s time to get rid of the underwear you’ve been holding onto for way too long.


Need a new pack for your upcoming journey to Timbuktu? No? How about just a sleek carry-all tote or spacious backpack from Timbuk2, the brand? Right now, these bag brainiacs are offering a 30% off their entire site (excluding a few Especial styles), which happens to be filled to the brim with sacks of all shapes and sizes, through Tuesday with the promo code BREAKUP. All the junk overflowing out of your ol’ faithful messenger bag will thank you.

Might we suggest checking out the reader-favorite Copilot, a durable roller with a lifetime guarantee, or the ever practical yet stylish Launch Pack, which clocks in at just over a pound — though it certainly punches far above its weight?


Your sore muscles will already start to feel better after you snag this Biofreeze deal. Just clip the 50% (!!) coupon to get a pair of fast-acting roll-on sticks for $10, an all-time low on Amazon by $4.

Biofreeze can be applied directly to the skin to relieve muscle pain, arthritis, and other forms of soreness. I can’t say I’ve ever used it, but it has great reviews from customers, so if you’ve been feeling achy, it may be worth a shot.

If you go through a lot of this stuff, there’s also a 20% coupon available on the 32 oz. pump bottle, bringing it down to $43.

Today’s Best Gaming Deals

Risk Legacy isn’t the somewhat boring and long-winded Risk game you’re familiar with. No, it’s a game with real stakes and consequences: You’ll draw on the board, rip up cards, and make decisions that can’t be undone over the course of your playing sessions. The man in black on Westworld should have just played this instead of looking for the maze.


Typically, Humble Monthly’s early unlock titles are a collection of indie games, but they’re trying something different this time. All Humble Monthly members can go download a copy of Assassin’s Creed Origins. The Egypt one.

As always, the game is yours to keep even if you cancel your $12 per month subscription, and just because you get an exciting AAA game early this month doesn’t mean you won’t still get a bunch of other mystery titles at the end of the month; you will.

Deals You May Have Missed

If you’re already a mechanical keyboard convert, the next logical step in the hobby is to start buying fancy keycap sets. PBT keys don’t get as worn down and shiny as the ABS keys that probably came with your keyboard.

This set of “pudding” doubleshot keys accentuates your keyboard’s backlighting, and you can get a set for $23 today by clipping the 5% coupon, which is about as cheap as PBT keys ever get. That 5% coupon doesn’t seem like much, but the $24 list price is actually a discount from the usual $29.


If you don’t care to have LED lighting built into your bidet, or just don’t want to wait to make the long overdue switch from wiping poop off your butt with dry paper (sorry to be crass but that’s what we all do, it’s insane!!), Bio Bidet’s already-released Slim Edge bidet is on sale for just $26 today, with Prime shipping.

Like the upcoming Glow, it includes two nozzles (the other’s for feminine cleaning), brass fittings, and a slim, easy-to-install design. Trust us, your tush will thank you.


Spring is certainly something to celebrate, and Express is using the incoming warmer temperatures (fingers crossed!) as an excuse to take an extra 30% off clearance for men and women, meaning clearance is 70% off total. But like the seemingly never-ending winter weather, this sale won’t last forever, so snag the styles you want — everything from dresses, shirts, suits, pants, jeans, and accessories —now.


We all love to hate Crocs, but guess what! Those lightweight, hole-y, rubber-y slides are cool now, thanks to the always groundbreaking runway scene and one Post Malone. And you too can be hip to the trend thanks to Crocs’ 20% off sale on new spring styles. Dozens of styles are available, and in case you haven’t noticed, Crocs makes other shoes that barely even look like Crocs. So go ahead and stock up on Crocs, because fashun.


We all know that the GameCube controller is the only appropriate controller for Super Smash Bros., and now you can use one for Smash Ultimate on your Switch, no wires required.

PowerA’s GameCube gamepad connects to your Switch over Bluetooth, no dongles required, and includes everything you need to play every modern Switch game, including home and screenshot buttons, and L3 and R3 clickable sticks, which the original GameCube controller lacked. Normally $50, you can snag one for $40 today.


Nintendo Labo Variety Kit | $40 | Amazon
Nintendo Labo Robot Kit | $40 | Amazon

Labo is Nintendo at its weird, wonderful best. The cardboard Variety Kit can turn your Nintendo Switch into a fishing pole, a motorcycle, a piano, and more fun toys. Again, this is cardboard!

So if you have a Switch and you have a kid (that second part is optional, it’s okay to play with this yourself), $40 is a solid $30 discount on the Variety Kit, and the Robot Kit, which literally turns your Switch into a freakin’ mech suit, is also on sale for $40 (from the original $80).


Diablo 3 Eternal Collection [Switch] | $40 | Amazon

Now that it’s out on Switch, you can take Diablo III with you anywhere, and at $40, it’s down to the best price we’ve seen all year. The Eternal Collection includes all of the DLC Blizzard has ever released for the game, plus a skin that you’ll only find here: Ganondorf.


Seagate’s FireCuda is one of the most popular PS4 replacement hard drives out there, mostly thanks to its built-in 8GB of flash storage that can speed up loading times, and you can get the 2TB model for just $80 today, or roughly $15 less than usual.

Even if you don’t feel like cracking open your PS4, you could pop this into an inexpensive enclosure like this one, and use it as an external drive over USB.


Today’s the last day step up your sneaker game thanks to Joe’s New Balance Outlet. The retailer is currently offering up to 40% off men’s and women’s shoes (plus 24 styles for men and women going for 50% off), and 70% off apparel for men and women with their Spring Super Sale. But don’t let these stellar prices through you off balance.


Anker’s newest PowerPort wall charger is its smallest one yet, and you can grab two of them for just $13 on Amazon today with promo code ANKERTP2.

The PowerPort Mini isn’t much bigger than the power brick that came with your iPhone, but it includes folding plugs, two ports, and 12W of power rather than just 5W. Literally everything about it is better.

That power is split between the two ports, so while it can charge an iPad at full speed if it’s the only thing plugged in, it’ll drop down to half speed if you plugged in a second device. But even so, that’s perfectly fine for overnight charging, and this thing is small enough to fit in any bag.


If you owed money on your taxes this year, I’m deeply sorry. I’ve been there. But if you found yourself to be flush with cash after filing, why not reinvest that refund into your home? That’s what Wayfair wants you to do, anyway, and they’re giving you and extra push with their Tax Refund Event, going on now. Take up to 70% off everything from area rugs, major appliances, and closet systems, to outdoor furniture, mattresses, and entertainment centers. Finally, the IRS is good for something.


The beginning of spring is the best time to save on winter clothes for next year, and REI’s end-of-season clearance is proof positive. For a limited time, over 5,000 cold weather products are on sale, with an extra 25% off at checkout.

Note: Several items are only on sale in certain color/size combos, and only products with listed sales will receive the extra 25% off.

Save on a Patagonia’s essential Nano Puff jacket (men | women), spring-friendly R1 pullover, or ever-popular Torrentshell raincoat (men | women), stock up on high quality merino wool hiking socks, and upgrade your water bottle to Hydro Flask. Your best bet though is probably to head to REI’s sale page, and sort by your favorite brands.

That’s really just the tip of the iceberg though. There are thousands of deals from hundreds of brands, and you can find them all here. Just remember that you won’t see the final price until you get to checkout.


Everyone needs a good pair of jeans, and if you need more than one pair — or a man, woman, or child in your life needs a pair, too — this deal is for you. Right now at Levi’s, you can get 30% off your order of $100 or more, plus free shipping, with code GOFORIT, hence why it’s a good time to stock up. The promo applies to regular-priced and sale styles for men, women, and kids, so truly everyone can dive into some new, discounted denim.


No matter what ’do does it for you, Living Proof has a styler to make it look great. Now, you can save on a whole range of products from the MIT-developed brand at Sephora.

There are nine full-size stylers marked down, plus the mini-versions of a few, too. The T.B.D. Multi-Tasking Styler, an all-purpose cream, is perhaps the most versatile of the bunch, though I do love a good texturizing spray, and this Instant Texture Mist fits the bill. There’s also a Molding Clay, Forming Paste, Control Hairspray for those who need a firmer hold. But no matter what high-tech styler you choose, you can’t go wrong, because they’re all $13 or less. Check them all out here, and be sure to pick out your perfect product match before it sells out.


Lucky you: Today, you can get stock up on a slew of bohemian-cool clothes that also happen to be marked down significantly. Lucky Brand is taking 60% off sale styles for men, women, plus, and kids, meaning you can fill your closet with shirts, tees, jackets, pants, and beyond that make you feel like you just found a four-leaf clover. Don’t press your luck; stock up on apparel before this sale’s lucky streak is over.


20% Off Select Spring Styles for Men, Women, Kids | Clarks | Promo code APRIL
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

New shoes, new you — I know that’s not the saying, but it should be. Especially because Clarks is taking 20% off a selection of warm-weather styles for men, women, and kids that are sure to put a spring in your step this season. Just use promo code APRIL to pick our your marked-down pair before this shoe deal walks out on you.


With Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft basically created the Netflix of video games, and it’s a great deal at its usual $10 per month. But right now, if you buy three months of the service for $30, you’ll get an additional three months for free. That’s six months of access to which grants you access to over 100 games like Sea of Thieves, Crackdown 3, Marvel v. Capcom Infinite, and all of the Gear of War games. The best part of this deal? It’ll also work if you’re an existing member.

Note: Just make sure you still see this promotional offer on the Amazon page before you buy:


Here’s your no-brainer deal of the day. If you visit this page and enter your email, Grove Collaborative will give you $30 worth of Grove and Mrs. Meyer’s products for free when you spend $20 on anything else on the site. I was also given a free glass spray bottle and concentrated cleaner, for seemingly no reason at all.

After you enter your email, you’ll automatically be taken to a cart with $20+ of items already added, but you can delete those and replace them with anything you’d like. Grove’s well stocked with laundry supplies, cleaning gear, pet products, personal care, and even baby items…you know, stuff that you have to buy anyway. So you might as well get a bunch of Mrs. Meyer’s stuff for free.

Note: The offer will also give you 60 days of Grove’s VIP free shipping membership for free, which will auto-renew at a rate of $20 per year, but you can cancel the auto-renew immediately after ordering.


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 right now.

Every new Firstleaf member gets an introductory delivery with six bottles of wine for just $40 with free shipping, and every box thereafter includes six bottles for $80, plus $10 shipping. But if you use this link and promo code Kinja when you sign up, you’ll get FREE shipping on every box for your entire first year. That’ll save you over $100 if you get a new box every month. At the very least, you should get the trial box for less than $7 per bottle. I mean, why wouldn’t you?


Our readers’ favorite VPN recently raised prices for the first time ever, but our readers can still get a great deal on the service by committing for three years.

Three year plans aren’t available to the general public at all, but if you click this link, you can get three years for $99, which works out to just $2.75 per month. That’s only $9 more than it was cost to the price hike, and while shorter plan lengths are available, none come close to the per-month pricing of this three-year membership. For example, the publicly available two-year plan costs about $84, and a month-to-month plan will set you back $10 per month.


If you’re having trouble sleeping, suffering from anxiety, or having trouble sleeping because you’re suffering from anxiety, Sunday Scaries CBD gummies could help. Jolie Kerr shared her thoughts on them for The Inventory, and now, our readers can save 15% for the always-stressful holiday season with promo code kinja15.

That applies to the regular gummies, the vegan versions, and the pure CBD tincture, with extra savings available if you buy in bulk, so your wallet can rest as easy as you will.
