You probably know by now that Anker’s PowerCore line is your favorite brand of USB battery packs, and the 20,000mAh model is marked down to just $27 today, the best price we’ve seen.

For reference, that’s enough juice to charge an iPhone 6s about seven times, or a Galaxy S6 about five times, making it perfect for sharing during long flights, camping trips, conferences, or extended Pokémon Go sessions. Just note that this deal is only available today, and only for Prime members.

Looking like you actually know what you’re doing when you work out is half the battle. Get part of the way there with Amazon’s sale on Adidas training clothes. Maybe next time you to go to the gym you’ll kind of look like you know what you’re doing, or, at the very least, have something to wear when you convince yourself not to go for a run.

In the lead-up to Prime Day, Amazon’s offering some pretty insane exclusive discounts to Echo owners who order via Alexa. Current options include an Amazon Tap for $79, and a Cuisinart Griddler for $40, but several others will be revealed in the coming days.

In addition to the individual product discounts, Amazon is taking $10 off any $20 order shipped and sold by Amazon when you purchase through an Echo, now through July 12.

Don’t have an Echo? If you order one today, you should have it in time for Prime Day.

If you have access to an Android device, congratuations! You’re entitled to a $5 Fandango credit.

All you have to do is install the Fandango app via Amazon’s Underground app store, and a $5 promo code will arrive in your email in 24-48 hours. Amazon’s terms & conditions say that it will only work if it’s your first time downloading Fandango, but it’s unclear at this time if that includes installs from Google Play, or only from Amazon Underground.

The Pebble Time is, in many ways, the best smart watch on the market, and you can try one out for just $85 today. Unlike many sub-$100 Pebble deals we’ve seen recently, this one is brand new, not a refurb.

It’s been a little while since we’ve shared a deal on an external hard drive! $47 is one of the best prices we’ve ever seen for a 1TB drive, so if you need more space to store file backups, music, photos, or movies, I’d jump on it.

Vinyl is back for some reason, and while I can’t fathom why people are buying records again, I’m duty-bound to report that Amazon’s selling a popular turntable for $60 today, in a variety of colors.

The Crosley Cruiser II can fold up like a suitcase for somewhat easy portability, includes a battery so you don’t have to keep it plugged in, and also sports a 3.5mm input so you can hook up your smartphone for all the songs you don’t own on vinyl.

It’s time to rock out with your wallet out: Amazon’s running a Gold Box deal on guitars, amps, electronic drum kits, and more. The guitars are the stars of this show, and several are available for under $200, so pick one up today so you’re ready for your next jam sesh.

In terms of video quality, it’s no GoPro, but there’s no more adorable action camera on the market than Polaroid’s Cube. If you want a basic action cam without spending a ton of money, you could do worse for $65.

Hands down, Nespresso is the easiest way to make decent espresso at home, and their Inissia model is on sale on Amazon for just $82, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen.

If you usually work on a laptop, or just prefer a tenkeyless keyboard for ergonomics, this wireless number pad from Kmashi can save the day when it’s time to pound on some spreadsheets.

We’ve seen plenty of deals on “premium” Google Cardboard-compatible VR headsets, but this is one of the only ones we’ve seen that includes a magnetic button on the side, which means you won’t have to pair an external Bluetooth remote to navigate within VR apps. Seriously, if you haven’t played with Google Cardboard yet, you’ll have so much fun.

If you still enjoy the feel of an old-fashioned paper magazine, Amazon’s selling 6-month subscriptions to dozens of popular titles today, including Vanity Fair, Wired, Popular Science, and a lot more. Just note that this is a Gold Box deal, meaning it’s only available today.

Nothing will ever make your cat love you, but if you buy her this heated cat bed, she might at least tolerate you. It only uses 4 watts of power, which means you can leave it on all day while you’re at work, and only pay a few extra pennies per month in electricity. We’ve seen this on sale a few times before, but it usually sells out fairly quickly.

These pretentious-but-handy chalkboard labels have been a hit among our readers, and this is one of the best deals we’ve seen on them. $10 gets you 10 erasable chalkboard markers, plus 40 stickers to get you started. Typically, you’re on your own when it comes to the markers, so it’s great that this combo includes everything you need to kickstart your twee labeling hobby.

Planning a movie night this weekend? Amazon’s discounting nearly 50 digital movie rentals to just $1 each. If you lock in your rental now, you’ll have 30 days to start watching the film, and then 24 hours to finish it.

Note: The list page doesn’t show the $1 prices, but if you click through to the individual movies, you’ll see the deal.

Amazon Fashion is an oasis of fashion surprises. There’s practically every piece of clothing, or accessory, or pair of shoes you could need (and more). And now, there’s a huge sale on literally all of it. You can get something new for everyone and save money in the process. If that’s not a win-win, I don’t know what is.

The reach of Everlane is far, with the indie brand become a staple of easy, simple, clean fashions. So, when they offer a “choose what you pay sale” on men’s styles, it’s your chance to score menswear pieces that practically never go on sale. Pick from three prices and have fun.

I feel like Oprah right now. You get luggage, and you get luggage, everybody gets luggaaaaaage! Timbuk2's giant, and I mean GIANT, sale is not something you want to miss. Grab one of your top five favorite rolling carry-ons or a new laptop messenger bag. Be sure to let us know what you pick up in the comments.

Waterpik is an easier (and they would argue more effective) way to “floss” between your teeth, and Amazon is currently taking $10 off the Waterpik Complete Care bundle, which includes an electric toothbrush. Just clip the $10 coupon, and use Subscribe & Save to maximize your savings. Just remember to cancel your subscription after it’s delivered.

If you don’t own a salad spinner, there’s really no reason not to get one for $8. Worst case, it’ll motivate you to buy and eat more greens.

Adobe’s Photoshop and Lightroom Creative Cloud photography suite normally costs $10 per month, but Amazon’s currently discounting a 12-month plan to just $7.49 per month. Creative Cloud plans don’t go on sale often, so if you’re a creative professional, or just want to make your own photos look better, this is a great opportunity to save on industry standard software.

I know, I know. The Xbox One S is coming soon. But damn, it’s hard to resist this $299 deal. That gets you the 1TB Spring Bundle (which includes four games), an extra game, a $50 Microsoft store credit, an extra controller, and a $20 credit to spend at the new Xbox Design Lab.

Even if you you didn’t play the bonus game or use the $20 credit, the extra controller and store credit alone are worth about $100, and you’re saving $50 on the console, so I feel pretty comfortable calling this the best Xbox One deal I’ve ever seen.

If you’ve ever spent more than 5 seconds sorting through your mismatched food containers to find the right lid, it’s time to throw them all out and upgrade to this Rubbermaid’s Easy Find Lid system.

These containers come in six different sizes, and yet you only have to deal with three different lids, making it much easier to find the right one. The 42 piece set has been on sale for $16 for months now, which is still within $1 of an all-time low. And today, you can also grab an $18 piece set for $8, or roughly $2-$4 less than usual.

Giant plugs that cover up half the outlets on your power strip should be outlawed, but until that day arrives, these short extension cords will have to do.

This bathroom scale doesn’t have any bells & whistles; just a sleek look, a great price, and tons of five-star reviews. Save a couple bucks with promo code 7RA66ARG.

You have no shortage of options when it comes to Bluetooth speakers, but the Jawbone Jambox line started the entire trend, and its highly-rated mini model is just $60 today on Amazon.

For a limited time, Amazon’s selling the 20 ounce model of your favorite travel mug, the Contigo Autoseal West Loop, for $16, or the 16 ounce model for $13, both among the best prices we’ve seen. These mugs are cupholder-friendly, easy to clean, and will maintain a hot beverage hot for up to five hours, or a cold drink for up to 12.

Note: The deal is available on multiple colors, so be sure to click around to find your favorite.
