There’s no such thing as too much flash storage, so stock up during Amazon’s one-day SanDisk sale.
I imagine the most popular items here will be the 256GB, 200GB, and 128GB microSD cards, all marked down to all-time low prices. These are ideal for GoPros, the Nintendo Switch, or anything else that needs a lot of extra storage space.
As far as desktop storage goes, there’s no shortage of flash drives available, including several that can work with your phone as well.
But if only the highest capacity and fastest transfer speeds will suffice, the 1TB portable SSD is the deal for you.
This is just scratching the surface of the deal though, so head over to Amazon to see all of the included products. Just remember that like all Gold Box deals, these prices are only available today, or until sold out.
Hot of the heels of their successful Nebula Mars mobile projector, Anker’s getting set to release an even smaller portable cinema, and our readers can save a bunch by preordering, and get some free accessories too.
The Nebula Capsule is about the size of a soda can, but can turn any wall into a 100″ display while outputting 360 degree audio. And you won’t be hurting for content, since you can plug in any HDMI video source, mirror your iOS or Android’s screen wirelessly, or use the built-in Android 7.0 OS to pull up your favorite streaming apps.
It’ll run for an industry-best 2.5 hours on a single charge (or 40 hours if you’re just using it as a Bluetooth speaker), but since it charges over USB, you can just bring a power bank with you for essentially unlimited playtime.
Of course, it’s not going to be as bright as a full-sized projector, or the larger Nebula Mars, but its 100 lumens are basically unmatched in the pico projector space. Similarly, its 800×480 resolution is pretty standard at this size and price point, but the picture won’t be as crisp as you’d get from a larger projector, especially at larger sizes.
But for just $269 (with our exclusive discount), it’s a perfectly capable portable theater that you can fit in your bag. That’s kind of amazing! Plus, when you order through our link, you’ll get a free mini tripod to help aim the picture, and a free carrying case too.
TCL’s 4K TVs are having a moment right now, and while we’ve seen a few deals on the 55″ and 65″ models, the smaller 49″ just got its biggest price drop ever. $342 is an all-time low, and it’s actually a few bucks cheaper than the current price for the 43″ model. It’s also just a ridiculously small amount of money to spend for a 4K panel, Roku smart apps, and even HDR support (albeit not Dolby Vision).
The 55″ remains available for $400 as well, if you’re willing to wait out a backorder.
Anker’s SoundBuds have long been our readers’ favorite affordable Bluetooth earbuds, and two different models are on sale today for about $6 less than usual.
Your options are the SoundBuds Tag for $24, or the SoundBuds Surge for $22. Both feature magnetic tips and about six hours of battery life, but the Surge has slightly smaller buds, while the Tag will automatically turn itself on and off when you attach the two buds magnetically.
Aukey’s newest battery pack isn’t much thicker than your smartphone, and yet it’s packing 20,000mAh of power, three USB output ports, a USB-C input/output port, and even a Lightning input port so you can recharge it with your Apple gear. Get it for $32 with promo code AUKEYPY4.
Mesh routers have, uh, routed the rest of the Wi-Fi industry over the last couple of years, and the popular Luma system is on sale for an all-time low (if you aren’t counting refurbs) $229 for a pack of three routers.
Rather than relying on a single base station to fill your entire home with Wi-Fi, Luma uses three of them to create a dense mesh of connectivity, making dead zones a thing of the past. Plus, they include some neat software for parents like automatic content filtering and daily time limits for specific devices.
USB-C will be the only cable we ever have to use before too long, but until that day comes, you’ll need some adapters to ease the transition.
Before you flee the country and/or go on your next international trip, be sure to pick up this universal plug adapter for $13. It also comes with a detachable USB adapter (with standard US prongs) that can be used as a standalone charger as well.
Until such a day comes that all of our devices use USB-C ports exclusively, you’ll need some USB 3.0-to-C cables to ease the transition. Today though, you can save about $2 off the usual price of Anker’s reader-favorite PowerLine+ cables, complete with a carrying pouch.
Vent-mounted magnets might be The Thing in smartphone car holders, but if your CD slot is lying dormant, or if you just don’t want to block a vent, this would also be a great option.
The ideal power supply for your nightstand or office desk is just $17 today. iClever’s BoostStrip includes four USB ports and three power outlets, meaning you can charge all of your mobile devices, run a computer and monitor, and even plug in a lamp, all on a single wall outlet.
While Quick Charge 3.0 is all the rage right now, Anker’s PowerDrive+ Speed 2 car charger can charge two devices with Quick Charge 2.0 simultaneously, and it’s just $13. With up to 2.4A per port, you’ll never run low on battery.
Plug in all the things with this $22 tower of power. This thing comes with 10 outlets, four USB ports, and its own 6ft retractable power cord. Plus, it rotates for optimum space-saving.

It has the features you guys loved about the first one – remote control, a slim body to reach under furniture, and large dust box, but boasts upgraded suction power, so the vacuum will sense when it needs to use a little extra juice to take care of a mess. It also has slightly larger wheels to easier navigate over door jams and higher-pile carpets, plus a larger HEPA-style filter to better trap allergens and pet hair. How convenient!
No matter how you prefer to carry your liquids on the go, you can probably find a bottle you’ll like in this one-day Amazon sale.

Just remember that this is a Gold Box deal, so place your order before the prices run dry.

We talked about a deal on this blender a week ago and now it’s even cheaper, as long as you don’t mind getting a refurbished model. This is the company that started the viral “Will it Blend?” videos. Which makes sense, this blender has 1,560 watts and 3 horsepower of ice crushing, fruit pulverizing power.
Refurbished models typically sell for around $250, but today is selling for just $190. So if you’ve had your eye on one of these, now is definitely the time.

No one loves sleeping on an air mattress. But this Serta Never Flat air mattress is guaranteed to not deflate in the middle of the night, thanks to a special pump that is constantly monitoring the air level to inflate or deflate to keep the pressure at your desired comfort level.

Bodum’s pour-over coffee maker is as beautiful as it is functional, and Amazon’s marked it back down to $14 today, the best price they’ve ever listed on the 34 ounce model. Hopefully, you take your coffee makers like you take your coffee: Black. Because that’s the only color on sale today.

With the ability to transform into a grill, an electric griddle, or a sandwich press, Cuisinart’s 3-in-1 Griddler is one of the most versatile kitchen appliances you can own, and it can be yours today for just $60, the best price Amazon’s ever listed.

Though, if you need to stock up, you’d better do it fast, because this deal runs out at the end of the day.

And unlike most electric trimmers, it’s shaped like a puck, rather than a wand, which makes it much easier to maneuver around the back of your own head. Just note that you won’t see the 20% discount until checkout.

TOP MEDIA DEALS
The Onion “obtained” 700 pages of internal documents from the Trump White House, and they’re being compiled into a book that you can preorder on Amazon for an all-time low price.
Today’s $24 price tag is the lowest preorder price Amazon’s offered so far, and if it drops any lower prior to release next week, you’ll automatically get the best price once it ships. Needless to say, this could make a great gift for your aunt in Antifa.
Full disclosure, we’re part of a larger Univision-owned family of websites that includes The Onion, but this is a legitimately good deal, and nobody told me to write about it.
The Rick and Morty fandom recently surged ahead of Boston sports fans as the most deranged and obnoxious group of people in the country, but the show really is quite good, and you can buy the second season on Blu-ray for $13 right now.
It’s just $3 today when you buy the Kindle version.
If you like to read, and aren’t opposed to doing it on an electronic device of some sort, here’s your no-brainer deal of the day. Humble’s latest bundle features two dozen DRM-free ebooks, and you can get them all for as little as $18, or some for just $1.
These aren’t books you’d find in the budget bin at the bookstore either. The list includes classics like Octavia Butler’s Dawn, John Brunner’s Shockwave Rider and All My Sins Remembered by Joe Haldeman.
As always with Humble Bundles, the titles are locked behind a few different price tiers, but you can pay whatever you want, and a portion of the proceeds will go to charity.
Amazon always offers a free one-month trial of its Audible audiobook service, but for a limited time, they’re also tossing in two free book credits to sweeten the pot . That’s in addition to the book you normally get with the trial, and each credit is valid for any title in the Audible library. The best part? The books you choose are yours to keep, even if you cancel the trial before it renews.
Just note that this deal is only valid for new Audible members only.

Final Fantaxy XII: The Zodiac Age is a great remake for JRPG fans, whether you played the original or not, and Amazon just marked it down to $35, the best price we’ve ever seen. Be sure to check out Kotaku’s review if you want to know more.
If you’re lucky enough to own an SNES Classic, you know that it’s perfect save for two things: The lack of additional Donkey Kong Country games, and the short controller cables. There’s an easy way to fix the former, and now, a great way to fix the latter as well.
Next week, 8Bitdo will release a $13 receiver that plugs into the controller port on the SNES (or NES) Classic, and allows you to use basically any Bluetooth-enabled gamepad to control it. That includes 8Bitdo’s own controllers, of course, but also PS4 game pads, the Wii U controller, and more. This price isn’t a deal per se, but I wouldn’t be at all surprised if it sells out.
The GOTY package includes some extra loot boxes and skins, plus bonus Overwatch-themed content for Blizzard’s other games as well.

Super Mario Odyssey is only about two weeks away, and here’s a friendly reminder that if you have Amazon Prime, you can preorder it for $12 off(discount shown at checkout).

You can also preorder a Switch bundle with exclusive Joy-Con, and the game included.
Humble’s newest bundle is filled with RPGs that will give you hours upon hours of enjoyment. Each price tier is highlighted by a Borderlands game, but several lesser-known titles are included as well.
