If you’re doing any sort of traveling this summer, today’s Gold Box has your name written all over it. Amazon’s lowering the price on RAVPower File Hub and Hootoo USB-C Dongles, for Prime members for one day only.
The RAVPower file hubs are basically the standard in terms of portable routers. These can convert those hotel room Ethernet connection into WiFi and serve as an file hub. If you go for either option over $20, you’ll also get to use it as a battery pack with 6700mAh of juice.
And if you have one of those new MacBooks with the too few IO ports, Amazon’s also dropping the price on a USB-C hub, in silver or gray. This particular dongle includes a USB-C pass-through port, an HDMI port, an SD card reader, and three of USB 3.0 ports for your accessories.
Anker makes surge protectors now, which is…incredibly logical. Their newest, largest model is down to $27 today, or about $8 less than usual. The PowerPort Power Strip includes 12 AC outlets and (naturally) three USB ports, plus a flat, swiveling plug that fits nicely behind your furniture. Surge protectors actually wear out over time, so if you haven’t replaced yours in awhile, this is a good opportunity.
Our desks have limited real estate and Twelve South’s PowerPic respects that and bundles the utility of a Qi charger with the the wholesome look of a picture frame. Right now, Amazon’s selling it for $53, about a dollar off the lowest price we’ve ever seen.
This particular charger can house a 5×7 image and outputs 10W to devices that support it. But just a heads up, this unit doesn’t come with a wall adapter. So you’ll need something to connect the cable to the wall.
If you already have an SSD but are still looking to eek out a bit more speed from your computer, you’re in luck. Right now, Amazon is discounting two sets of HyperX RAM sticks, both at their lowest prices this year. Upgrade your laptop to 16GB of RAM or add 8GBs more RAM to a desktop for the lowest prices we’ve seen this year.
RAM enables you to multitask like a pro, letting you have more tabs open at once and can help open up large files more quickly.
With a 12-hour playtime, Airplay 2, 360 degree sound and rich bass, the Libratone Zipp can also be taken on the road, with an 10 hour battery life. Woot’s current deal is for a refurbished model and offers a 90-day Libratone Warranty.
Just remember that this prices is only available today, or until sold out. So don’t wait, the popular colors may sell out faster than you’d like.
It’s never a bad idea to have batteries on hand, and today, you can pick up a pack of 48 AAs from Energizer for just $15. That’s one powerful discount.
My parents bought a Traeger grill a couple years ago, and holy crap it’s cool. You pour wood pellets (there a ton of different kinds) into the container on the left side of the grill, select the temperature you want, and the grill feeds the pellets into a heating element at whatever speed is necessary to maintain that exact temperature. The result is smokey deliciousness with the ease of using an oven.
The Renegade Pro model gives you 380 square inches of cooking space, and $490 is a whopping $260 less than usual. Just remember to invite me over the first time you use it to smoke a brisket.
If your home isn’t as brainy as you’d like it to be, Home Depot’s Special Buy of the Day today is full of smart home gear to automate your daily drudgery. Inside, you’ll find smart locks, smart thermostats (mostly limited to 2-packs, annoyingly), security cameras, smart light switches, and more. Just remember that these prices are only available today, so don’t wait for the deal to reboot.
WeMo smart switches are basically the atomic unit of home automation, and you can pick one up for just $18 today, the best price we’ve seen outside of Black Friday.
Despite its diminutive size, this includes all the same features as the full-sized WeMo Switch, including IFTTT support, Alexa compatibility, and an Away mode that will randomize your lights to deter ne’er-do-wells.
Track your dog’s whereabouts with this $40 Tractive 3G GPS tracker. This lightweight, waterproof device promises to give you “real-time location of your furry friend,” and it can be shared with your family and friends just in case your pal gets lost.
This $40 price is the lowest we’ve ever seen on this model, but just note that it’s not a one-time purchase. Service plans start at $5/month, and if your pupper is especially rambunctious, that’s well worth the price.
Save cash and keep your fitness dreams alive with this discounted Omega Juicer. For $190, you can create your own blends from the fruits and vegetables of your choice. For some perspective, this one-day sale price is about $100 less than the price currently on Amazon and one of the lowest price we’ve ever seen. This discount will only last until the end of the day, so pick up this highly-rated juicer now.
Right now, you can get a 12-pack of Clif energy bars for $.50 a bar if you’re cool with white chocolate macadamia. I mean… for $6, it’s worth a shot, right? (I bought two packs, lol.)
If you’re a homeowner, Woot’s marked down a number of Greenworks equipment for a limited time. Today, you’ll find discounts on trimmers, saws, and even a reel mower to trim your grass and beat back hedges. Just note that these prices are only available today, or until sold out. So make sure to check out the deal page to see the Greenworks discounts.

Use promo code BIGDEAL to take advantage of this designer deal before its gone for the summer.

Deals You May Have Missed
Dr. Dan’s CortiBalm isn’t just any old lip balm. No, it includes hydrocortisone, which makes all the difference in the world.
Here’s what Chelsea had to say about it on The Inventory:
What sets Dr. Dan’s CortiBalm apart from other lip balms is the fact that it contains 1% hydrocortisone — a pretty standard of dose of an anti-inflammatory topical steroid that’s in a lot of anti-itch creams that you can buy over the counter at the pharmacy — along with a hypoallergenic blend of beeswax, petroleum jelly, mineral oil. And that’s it. No other chemicals or potential irritants. Dr. Dan’s claims to be the only lip balm on the market that’s imbued with the medicinal gift that is hydrocortisone, and let me tell you, it makes a big difference when it comes to healing your lips in the long run, as opposed to just providing a temporary fix.
Today on Amazon, you can pick up three tubes for $14, which isn’t a huge discount from the usual $15-$16, but it’s the best price we’ve seen in a while.
Bar none, Sport-Brella is the ultimate beach umbrella, and Amazon’s discounting the red and blue XL models to just $50 today, the best price we’ve seen since last year.
Unlike a regular umbrella, Sport-Brella leans backwards and attaches to the sand with stakes, creating a kind of semi-private cocoon with enough space for a couple of chairs and a cooler. Best of all, it sets up in about five minutes (once you know what you’re doing), and can provide a full day’s worth of privacy and sun protection.
Do not miss out on your chance to become a donut chef. With this non-stick pan—now on sale for $13—you can whip up a batch of 20 donuts at a time in the flavors of your choosing. Just be sure to buy yours before this deal gets eaten up.

But if you’re looking for something a bit bigger, the 55″ model is $747 and the Class 9 Series 55″ model is $997.
Nope, it’s not a mistake: This is a 1TB SSD for $110 and one of the cheapest we’ve ever seen on an SSD with that much space, especially from a name brand like SanDisk. If you still have a PC lying around with a spinning hard drive, do yourself a favor and pick this up, or turn it into a DIY external SSD on the cheap.
Do you spend most of your summer sleeping under your top sheet, rather than using a blanket or comforter? It is just too hot to have something so thick on top of you. If you’ve wanted to try a weighted blanket, but thought it would be too hot to do so during the summer, you’re in luck. You can get a 48″ x 72″ ZonLi Cooling Weighted Blanket for only $44 on Amazon when you use the promo code 20KRHVTT. The 15-pound blanket is made with breathable cotton fabric and is filled with glass beads.

If you want to invest in your cooking, a good meat thermometer isn’t far behind a good knife in the hierarchy of important gear. And today, you can score a rare discount on the best thermometer out there. In fact, $59 is cheaper than the last open-box deal we saw on this thing.
Our readers love the Thermapen because it displays the temperature in 2 – 3 seconds, has a 3,000 hour battery, is waterproof, and is accurate to within 0.7°F.
Here are just a few readers gushing over the Classic model:
Thermapen Classic (or really any of the Thermapens). Bar none the best thermometer for cooking I have ever bought — accept no substitutes.
Somewhat expensive at ~$70-$120 range, but I’ve been using mine for years and years, and it still gives me an accurate reading in less than three seconds. Well, well worth the price. Especially excellent for the grill. – theburners
Without a doubt. No other thermometer comes close. I’ve said it before on Kinja that the Thermapen is the best piece of kitchen equipment I’ve ever bought. – the-return-of-samba00
This model doesn’t see significant discounts very often, so pick up one in patriotic red or blue today.
Wedding season is officially upon us and that means you are about to drop a ton of money. If any of your friends or family members are getting married and they are registered at Macy’s, you better check their registry ASAP.

If you don’t have to pay full price for that dinnerware set, why would you?
Does your skin turn a nice tomato red after only five minutes of sun exposure? You better stock up on some sunscreen now before you’re assaulted by UV rays all summer long. Thankfully, a cult-favorite Japanese sunscreen is currently on sale.
You can get an extra large bottle (1.7x the normal size) of Biore UV Watery Essence for $16 on Amazon right now, or a regular sized bottle for $8. The larger bottle is a slightly better price per ounce, but they’re both solid deals compared to their normal price points. The 50 SPF sunscreen is pretty literal to its name and is said to feel like water when applied to your skin.
Here’s what Shep McAllister had to say about it on The Inventory:
As far as sunscreen goes, the only thing I really knew about it was that I didn’t like it, and given the option, I would usually just opt to stay indoors until the UV index fell to around 3 or 4, or until someone invented a sunscreen pill, whichever came first.
That all changed when my wife introduced me to Biore Watery Essence sunscreen. It’s SPF 50 (the bare minimum for my needs, thank you very much), waterproof for 80 minutes, and feels like rubbing water on your skin. Cool to the touch, it rubs in effortlessly, and doesn’t come with the unpleasant smell or zincy stickiness of pretty much every other sunscreen I’ve used. About two minutes after putting it on, I’ve usually completely forgotten about it, which is a compliment of the highest order.
Don’t let the Demogorgon get you! Stranger Things is finally back for season three and you know what that means? More Dungeons and Dragon references!

Fourth of July is officially upon us, which means summer is in full swing. If you have plans to spend time at the beach, pool, lake, or anywhere near water this summer, you need a towel. Why not get a bunch while they’re on sale? Right now, you can get 40% off Turkish towels during this Huckberry sale. Turkish towels are great because they are more absorbent than regular towels, but dry faster, while also feeling soft and luxurious. You can get Turkish towels for as low as $22.

If the Founding Fathers were alive today, they’d probably wear Greats sneakers. Why? Because Greats is taking 17.76% off their entire stock of luxe, Italian leather sneakers in honor of America’s birthday, which is very patriotic of them. Just use promo code FIREWORKS, and pick up a pair of classic Royales, even though we officially renounced the monarchy 243 days and 1 day ago today. They’re worth it.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: There is no such thing as too much underwear. Aerie apparently agrees. Right now, you can choose 10 pairs from a spectrum of select styles, from boybriefs to thongs, for just $30, which, yes, essentially means you’re getting underwear for $3 per pair. Pretty good considering they usually go for somewhere between $9 and $12.50 each. No need to use a promo code; just fill your cart and see the savings.

Everyone is worried about mosquitos already, and while they’re annoying, don’t forget about flies. Deer and horse flies bite and those can be even more painful and itchy than mosquito bites.

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 $1, for a limited time as part of the company’s lead-up to Prime Day.

Beyond the standard $50 discounts you hear about in the middle of every podcast, Casper mattresses don’t go on sale often, and Casper accessory deals are even rarer. But the Fourth of July’s 10% sitewide sale (live now) holds the promise of serious savings, if you still haven’t gotten rid of that old coil spring.
They’ve run the same deal for a few other holidays this year, but this is still a solid deal if you’re in the market for a great bed.
To get this deal, you have to buy a mattress (sorry, dog mattresses don’t count), so you can’t take advantage if you’re only shopping for accessories. But 10% savings on a standard Casper mattress works out to nearly $100 on a queen, or as much as $240 on the new, advanced Wave mattress. Just use promo code STRIPES at checkout to see the savings stack up.
We occasionally see deals on individual Sonos refurbished products, but we’ve never seen a refurb sale like this.
Note: If one color is showing up as out of stock, try the other.

Savings compared to buying them new range from $30 to $150, and you get the same one year warranty, free shipping, and free returns that you’d get with brand new speakers. So whether you’re starting your Sonos setup, or adding to the family, you’ll want to grab these before they’re gone.

Our readers’ favorite VPN recently raised prices for the first time ever, and the company’s best-value (and Kinja Deals-exclusive) three-year plan is going away at the end of the week, so this is your last chance to subscribe at the best per-month price available.
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.

If you subscribe to the three-year plan today, you’ll be able to continue to renew it at the same price for the life of your subscription, so this is a great chance to lock in a terrific deal.
