By now, you should know that Anker PowerLine Lightning cables are incredibly popular, but did you know there’s another tier of cables above them? Anker’s PowerLine+ line increases the bend lifespan from 5,000 to 6,000 and adds a nylon braided exterior. Want to see one for yourself? The 10' model is available in red for $14 today, or about three bucks less than usual.

Personally, I prefer to have a distinct router and modem, so that I can upgrade them independently. But if you’re short on space, or just want fewer wires and gadgets to manage, this $130 Netgear fulfills both jobs.

Got a fancy new USB-C powered phone, and want to keep it charged in the car? You’ve got two great options to choose from today.

Samsung’s SmartThings ecosystem is one of the easiest and most powerful ways to give your home a brain, and Amazon’s taking 20% off everything you need to get started today.

You’ll need to start with either the SmartThings Hub for $79, but from there, you can add motion sensors, smart outlets, water leak sensors, and more to expand the system’s capabilities. We aren’t sure how long these special prices will be available, so head over to Amazon and lock in your order while you still can.

This 2-pack of fire extinguishers probably won’t arrive in time for Fourth of July fireworks, but they’re still worth keeping stocked in your home.

It’s not the sexiest deal of the day, but this Waste King garbage disposal manages a 4.6 star average from nearly 5,000 customers, and it’s marked down to $122 today on Amazon. While that’s not an all-time low, it’s well below its usual ~$150.

Let’s not beat around the bush: This tumbler is supposed to look and behave like a Yeti Rambler. I don’t know if it’s quite as good, but its limited reviews are almost universally positive, so it may be worth a try at $16.

If you can’t start your day without a morning cup of coffee, but you’re still using an electric drip coffee maker, or even (gasp) a Keurig, you might want to try out a flavor-extracting french press. This inexpensive Chef’s Star model looks nearly identical to the excellent Bodum Chambord, but is significantly cheaper at $17, complete with a pair of matching cups.

If you’re not convinced, know that french press took the #1 spot in Lifehacker’s coffee-making Hive Five, and many coffee aficionados swear by it. And with no disposable filters or pods to buy, this machine could pay for itself over time.

If you need a little extra push to get out and go for a run, Amazon will sell you a pair of Mizuno Wave Sayonara 3 running shoes for just $48 today. These shoes typically sell for about $60-$70 around the web, and you even get to pick your favorite color; just click through to the product pages to find the color selector.

If you want a Big Green Egg charcoal grill, but don’t want to cash in your 401(k) to buy one, this Char-Griller alternative is down to an all-time low $285 today, and a great investment for meat lovers everywhere.

The Char-Griller Akorn Kamado Kooker features a 306 square inch cast iron cooking surface (which is most similar to the $829 large Big Green Egg), and traps heat inside a heavily-insulated stainless steel body. Our deal researcher, Corey, owns a BGE, and I asked him about it on Slack:

And I use my BGE for about 70% of meat meals.

Probably 90% during the warm months.

Best Father’s Day gift I’ll ever get.

Lana jokes that she’s the one who benefits most because I cook on it all the time.

Worth the price just for its ability to cook pizza, IMO.

But pork chops, lions, tenderloin are beyond incredible on it.

Obviously, this isn’t the “real thing,” but the consensus among Amazon reviewers is that it’s at least nearly as good, which sounds like a decent compromise considering it’s only about 1/3 of the price, and comes with a stable cart and folding shelves, both of which you’d need to buy separately with the Egg.

Heading out for a hike, and don’t want to carry a water bottle? This $25 hydration backpack includes a 70 ounce water bladder, which should keep you going all day.

Let’s say you’ve already upgraded to a good toothbrush; what’s the next step for cleaner teeth? Judging by the user reviews, this 20-count box of Crest 3D Whitestrips is a great place to start. As an added bonus, you’ll even get a pair of express one-hour treatments, for when a whiter smile just can’t wait.

Note: Be sure to clip the $7 coupon on the product page.

Update: Now down to $57!

Though it’s been replaced by the UE Boom 2, the original UE Boom was at one point the best Bluetooth speaker you could buy, and it remains a fantastic option today.

While supplies last, Amazon’s offering up certified refurbs for $57, which is by far the best price we’ve ever seen. Considering this used to sell regularly for $200, that’s a whole lot of speaker for your money. At this price, you could even buy two and link them together for true stereo sound.

SwissGear makes some of the most popular laptop bags out there, and Amazon’s taking an extra 20% off two different models today with an on-page coupon.

Both can fit laptops up to 17", and both feature a special transparent pocket that lets you leave your computer in the bag while going through airport security. Just choose whichever one you think looks nicer, and enjoy the extra scrap of dignity during your next flight.

Summer isn’t kind to your wiper blades, so if you’ve been struggling to see the road through streaks on your windshield, Amazon’s offering up a pair of Bosch Insight Blades for just $22 right now. Just pick the two you need, add them to your cart, and the discount should appear automatically. The deal even allows you to mix and match sizes, so you can almost certainly find a combination that will work for your car.

Note: The discount will only work on blades shipped and sold by Amazon directly. No third party sellers.

3D printing is one of the more constructive hobbies you can learn, and with today’s deal, it’s also shockingly affordable.

Amazon is currently selling Monoprice’s Maker Select entry-level 3D printer for $273, or $77 less than Monoprice itself. Its 8"x8"x7" build area is plenty large for this price, it includes some PLA filament to get you started, and all you have to do to set it up is tighten six screws. If you have any experience with this, be sure to sound off in the comments!

Amazon’s free Prime Pantry shipping promotion seems to be a permanent fixture at this point, but each month brings a new slate of eligible items, and July’s have just been revealed.

As always, just add five of the items on this page to your Prime Pantry box, enter code PANTRYJUL at checkout, and the $6 shipping charge will be waived. Plus, if you happen to have a free Pantry shipping credit from accepting no rush shipping on a previous Amazon order, it should stack, granting you an additional $6 discount.

There are literally hundreds of products available for the promotion, so you should have no trouble finding five that you need.

While the Logitech Harmony Touch doesn’t have as many physical buttons as its brethren, its integrated touchscreen can perform all of the same functions as you control up to 15 of your favorite devices, from a database of nearly a quarter million. $100 is a match for the best price we’ve seen, so pick one up before they’re all swallowed up in someone else’s couch cushions.

‘Tis the season for cordless lawn tool deals, and this one’s a doozy. If you purchase a select Black & Decker 20V tool combo from Amazon, you can pick another tool (sans battery) for 50% off. They all use the same battery pack, so you can just swap the same batter back and forth between the tools, rather than buying a second.

Update: There’s now free shipping on everything.

Going to Uniqlo is like going to the grocery store when you’re hungry; you always end up getting more than you need. So with summer staples like chino shorts for under $20, graphic tees for $10, and polos to dress it up on occasion for $15, you bet you’ll put multiple things in our cart that you thought you didn’t want, but definitely needed.

The newest, big-screen Nest Learning Thermostat 3.0 is down to $199 today on Amazon, which is a match for the best discount we’ve ever seen. These don’t go on sale all that often, so if you have one on your wishlist, I wouldn’t hesitate.

We posted this deal a little over a month ago, but if you’ve eaten all of those sweet, sweet Haribo Gold Bears, you can pick up another five pound bag today for just $11. And don’t worry, these aren’t the sugar free ones.
