Blendtec Blender

It’s smoothie season, baby! Amazon


Before it sells out—because good blenders often do—snag this Blendtec classic black blender for $189. This blender typically sells for around $295. The blender has programmed settings for actions like crushing ice, blending smoothies, and making hot soup. The jar and blade are also designed to pull your ingredients back down as it’s blending. $180.

23-inch tilting monitor

Dell Monoprice


Today on Monoprice save 11 percent—or $20—on a 23-inch Dell computer monitor. The tiling LED screen has a 1080p resolution, a dynamic contrast ratio (meaning the darks are very dark and the lights are very light), and uses a ComfortView feature to reduce the blue light emitted from the screen. The screen can also be rotated 90 degrees for a vertical view. Get it today for $160.

HD home theater 600 system

Klipsch Amazon


This wired home theater is available for $200 off. The system comes with four satellite speakers that can be mounted on 40-degree adjustable wall mounts, plus one center channel for under your TV and a 100-watt subwoofer that provides super powerful low-end. Get the $600 system for $400 today.


Mynt Amazon


From today until August 31, Mynt—an Anker company—has two massagers on sale. I’m coincidentally writing about the company’s awesome shiatsu foot massager later this week, so I was excited to see these two items on sale. The heated neck-and-shoulder massager is now $56 with the code MYNT2241. It can go for 1.5 hours and features eight shiatsu nodes to cover more of your neck and shoulders.

Mynt’s handheld, cordless massager is 32 percent off and now available for $34 with the code MYNT2842. This massager holds a 2-hour charge and has two textured heads, seven vibration modes, and four speeds.

SSD storage

Samsung Amazon


Samsung T5 portable SSD drives dropped $29 two days ago. If you’re in need of some reliable storage on the go, grab one of these 1TB drives for $300. If you don’t need that much space, the 500GB option dropped from $150 to $128 about a month ago.

Both hard drives have transfer speeds up to 540MBs a second and are small enough to fit in your hand. They come with a 3-year warranty.

With all our product stories, the goal is simple: more information about the stuff you’re thinking about buying. We may sometimes get a cut from a purchase, but if something shows up on one of our pages, it’s because we like it. Period.
