Networking and storage gear.

BUY NOW

If you’ve got WiFi connection issues or find yourself always in need of more file storage, Amazon has great deals—up to 25 percent off—on networking gear and hard drives. Call me old-fashioned, but as a person that dabbles in graphic design, filmmaking, and music production, I like to back up my files on a physical external hard drive as well as cloud storage. The full list of deals is this way.

Smart Plug

The TP-Link Smart Plug connects to your home WiFi and lets you turn on appliances from your phone using the Kasa smartphone app. The plug is compatible with Amazon’s Alexa and Google Assistant and plugs into any existing outlet. Right now, you can grab one for half off—now $20.

I saw a woman snag—and break—her headphones on someone’s umbrella this morning. I dedicate this post to her. If you also haven’t transitioned to wireless earbuds and need a new wired pair, save 24 percent on a pair of Anker Soundbuds Verve by using the code ANKER801 at checkout. $13.

Phone protection

RhineShield Amazon

BUY NOW

You will drop your phone. It will fall off the couch. It will clatter to the ground because you forgot it was in your coat pocket. When these things happen, let a protective phone case take the blows, not your pricey and annoying-to-replace device. Today only, Amazon has 30 percent off RhineShield protective phone cases for Google Pixel 2 and 2 XL, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, or iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. They are lightweight, shock-absorbent, and drop-tested at up to 11 feet. Plus they’re only $17.

Inflatable mattress

This inflatable twin mattress from Intex comes with a built-in electric pump. It’s 16.5 inches tall and can hold up to 300 pounds. It’s even got a raised, built-in pillow for extra comfort. While prices fluctuate, the mattress usually sells for around $30—you can get it today for $20.
