You’ll find a selection of the day’s best deals below, but for more, be sure to visit Kinja Deals.
Today on Amazon, $19 gets you nine popular Mel Brooks films on Blu-ray, including Blazing Saddles, Robin Hood: Men In Tights, and Spaceballs, plus a ton of special features. That’s about $5 to $10 less than usual, and the best price Amazon’s ever seen.
Vansky motion-activated under-the-bed night-light, $18 with code SJMFQK08
Finally, someone made the Glow Bowl, but for everywhere else in your home. This motion-sensing light strip is billed as an under-the-bed night-light, but you could just as easily attach it under your bathroom counter, along a railing, beneath your baby’s crib, or anywhere else you might need to venture in the middle of the night. For a limited time, you can get one for just $18 with code SJMFQK08.
If you’ve come home after work to one too many destroyed pillows or overturned trashcans, this ingenious little gadget can help you keep an eye on your pets from anywhere.
Petcube is a wi-fi camera, intercom system, and laser toy all wrapped into one sleek package, and Amazon is selling it today for $79, an all-time low and roughly half its usual price. The video above does a better job of explaining this thing than I ever could, and if you own a pet and spend a lot of time away from home, it could be a great investment.
If you’re looking to round out your gift list, Amazon’s Fossil Gold Box is for you. There’s everything from bags to wallets to jewelry, even a smart watch (even for people who hate them). It’s as if Amazon picked out the perfect last-minute gifts and put them on sale.
Instant Pot sous-vide circulator, $100 with promo code KINJASV
A whole bunch of you have bought Anova’s excellent sous-vide circulators over the past few years, but today, you can get Instant Pot’s new take on the product category for $100 with the exclusive promo code KINJASV.
Lifehacker has a great explanation of sous-vide cooking for you to check out, but the basic idea is that you seal the food in plastic bags, and then cook it in precisely heated water over a relatively long period of time, resulting in meat that is heated all the way through to a very precise temperature. It sounds weird, but trust me when I say that it works like magic.
The Instant Pot circulator doesn’t actually require an Instant Pot to function and won’t integrate with one in any special way either; it simply clamps to the side of any pot just like the Anova. It also lacks the Anova’s wireless connectivity, which is mostly useless on the Bluetooth model, but is somewhat helpful on the more expensive wi-fi version.
That said, if you’ve been meaning to buy one of these things, $100 is a great price for anyone that missed Anova’s $99 Black Friday deal. If they were the same price today, I’d probably buy the Anova, but for $50 less, the Instant Pot should still turn out some amazing steaks (and a whole lot more).
You’ve probably solidified your holiday travel plans by now, but maybe haven’t thought about the status of your luggage that you shoved into the back of your closet. Why not get a new set that you won’t need to worry about falling apart before it hits the baggage claim? Amazon’s one-day luggage sale has a plethora of options so you can relax a little bit about your upcoming trip. Maybe.
