Hisense 55-inch 4K smart TV, $498


Hisense isn’t the most well-known TV company out there, but it’s generally well respected, and it’s tough to find much fault with a 55-inch 4K smart TV with HDR processing for $498. This is the entry-level model of the company’s 2016 lineup, and its black levels are apparently a step or two behind its more expensive brethren, but this price is one of the best we’ve seen for any 55-inch 4K/HDR TV.

PNY flash storage sale

You can never have enough flash storage, and Amazon’s here to feed your addiction with a one-day Gold Box sale on PNY products.

Inside, you’ll find flash drives, SD cards, a portable SSD, and even a weird, Frankenstein’s monster of a flash drive that also includes a microUSB connector and a microSD card reader. That’s just for starters, though, so click here to see the rest of the deals.


APC Gold Box


If you ever have to deal with power shortages and brief outages, Amazon is offering all-time low prices on a pair of APC UPS backup power supplies, plus an 11-outlet surge protector, today only.

If you use a desktop computer, these will of course keep your machine running without any interruption in the event of a power outage, which means you won’t lose any unsaved work. But even if you only use laptops and mobile devices at home, they could still run lamps, your router and modem, or even a TV until the power comes back on.


The $121 BR1500G gives you 1,500 volt-amps and 865 watts, while the $45 APC BE600M1 is better suited for networking gear like your router and modem. Just note that like all Gold Box deals, these prices are only available today, or until sold out.

Homitt 30 oz. tumbler with lid, handle, and two straws, $13 with code PH2RJ8UD


$13 is solid price for 30 ounce YETI-style tumbler by itself. But it’s a fantastic deal for one that includes stainless steel straws, a lid, and a detachable handle.

12-inch All-Clad skillet with lid, $88 or 10-inch with lid, $80


All-Clad skillets are among the most popular pieces of cookware we’ve ever posted, and Amazon’s marked the 12-inch tri-ply down to its lowest price ever.

These skillets feature a durable stainless steel cooking surface, an even and rapid-heating aluminum core, and a beautiful stainless exterior, all sandwiched together to create the ultimate pan. And, like all All-Clad items, it comes with a lifetime warranty, though you probably won’t need it so long as you treat it well.


Most buyers will want to opt for the 12-inch skillet with lid for $88, but if you’re only cooking for one or two, you might be able to get away with the 10-inch model (with a lid) for $80.
