If you’re ready to take the plunge into LED lighting, this 6-pack of higly-rated TCP daylight bulbs is down to just $18 on Amazon right now, one of the best per-bulb prices we’ve ever seen. They aren’t dimmable, so you won’t want to put them in certain fixtures, but it’s a great bulk pack for filling out ceiling lights and lamps throughout your house.
Once you’ve got them, check to see if your local utility company offers rebates for purchasing LEDs. If so, it’s possible these could pay for themselves even quicker than they would otherwise.
If you prefer a warmer bulb, the equivalent soft white pack is just a couple bucks more.
If you’re in the market for a new phone, and you don’t necessarily need the latest and greatest, the perfectly capable Samsung Galaxy S5 is available for just $160 today refurbished, courtesy of Amazon.
It’s two years old at this point, but the GS5 is still capable of shooting 4K video, features a 5.1" 1080p AMOLED screen, and is even waterproof. That’s a lot of phone for the money. Just note that it’s only compatible with GSM carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile, and that this is a Gold Box deal, meaning this price is only available today, or until sold out.
Life’s too short to vacuum every other day, but luckily, you can pawn that tedious chore off to your very own robot, and one of the best are on sale today.
The iRobot Roomba 870 is designed for pet owners and allergy sufferers, and can even detect the dirtiest areas of your floor to give them extra attention. Just schedule your cleanings, and let it work; it can even dock itself to charge once it’s finished. I got a Roomba 770 a few months ago, and I absolutely adore the thing.
Today’s Best Buy deal is a whopping $150 less than usual, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it sold out early.
A whole bunch of high-end 4K Samsung TVs are on sale today around the web, starting at under $700 for a 50" model, and ranging up to $1375 for a 3D curved option.

These lights are battery-operated, meaning you can stick them anywhere you want, and they’ll shut off automatically after 30 seconds if they don’t detect any movement.
Seek’s thermal imaging camera promises to give your phone heat-sensitive Predator vision, and it (mostly) delivers! If you’ve been waiting for a deal to pick one up, Amazon has the Android version for $170 today, an all-time low. it Is it frivolous? Probably. Do I still want it? Yes, absolutely.
You don’t need it for another 7 months or so, but $20 is by far the best price we’ve seen on a landscape laser light projector, if you want to get an early jump on your holiday decorating.
If you aren’t familiar, these genius little gadgets use lasers to project red and green lights onto the front of your house, giving the appearance of holiday spirit without the hassle of actually hanging up outdoor lights. Last year was the first time they were widely available, but they were almost impossible to find, and consistently cost $40-$50. So yes, this deal is about half a year ahead of schedule, but it never hurts to plan ahead.
If you use a Keurig machine to make your morning coffee (not judging!), Amazon will sell you a K-cup sample box for $10, and give you that $10 back as a credit to purchase more coffee products later on. Assuming you use the credit, that’s like getting a dozen K-cups for free.
Like the idea of a Belkin WeMo Switch, but not willing to spend $40-$50 to try one out. This TP-Link alternative has a nearly identical feature set for half the price.
Just like a WeMo switch, TP-Link’s Smart Plug will let you turn appliances on and off from your smartphone, and set schedules to toggle them automatically. The only major feature it’s lacking is IFTTT support, but it will integrate with an Amazon Echo for voice control.
ADATA’s Premiere line of SSDs isn’t nearly as fast or as well-known as Samsung’s 850 series, but it still got a solid review from Anandtech, and this 960GB model is down to an absurdly low $188 on Newegg’s eBay storefront, complete with a three year warranty.
A few months ago, I bought the 480GB model of this drive in order to build a my own DIY external SSD, and it’s worked incredibly well so far. Seeing this price though, I wish I’d waited.

If a refurb wouldn’t bother you, Amazon has it for $10 less.
After a longer-than-usual layoff, PayPal’s eBay storefront is once again offering a solid discount on a $100 iTunes gift card. This time around, it’s a 15% discount, compared to the more frequent 20% deal, but if your balance is empty or running low, it’s still worth stocking up.
Everyone who owns a car should also own an OBD-II scanner to diagnose check engine lights, and at $14, there’s no reason not to. There are Wi-Fi and Bluetooth models out there that sync with your phone for a little more money, but this is a great option if you don’t want to futz with apps.
Anker, purveyor of your favorite battery packs, charging cables, and Bluetooth speakers, also makes some advanced LED desk lamps, and a pair of them are on sale today.
