Madden NFL 17, $20
If your favorite NFL team has already crashed out for the season, you can pick up a copy of Madden NFL 17 for just $20, and recreate the year as you see fit. Play as the Vikings and sign a better kicker! Move the Chargers to somewhere larger than a Texas high school stadium! Keep Derek Carr healthy! Properly disclose knee injuries! The choices are yours, but this deal is only available today, or until sold out.
Logitech MX Mouse, $65
The Logitech MX Master Mouse comes with all the accoutrements you’d expect form a high-end mouse—namely a rechargeable battery, adjustable DPI, and a dark field laser that works on glass—and a few that you wouldn’t, like a side thumb wheel for horizontal navigation and gestures, and the ability to connect over Bluetooth to three devices simultaneously.
$65 is the best price we’ve ever seen, but I wouldn’t expect it to last, so click on over to Amazon to lock in your order.
Aukey 16,000mAh Portable Charger, $23 with code 5ZREC35I
$23 would be a good price for any 16,000mAh battery pack, but it’s especially notable for one with Quick Charge 3.0, and an extremely slim design.
Tax forms are finally starting to roll out, but before you go out and pay full price for filing software, be sure to check out Amazon’s TurboTax discounts.
This page has a handy comparison chart to help you choose the right version for you. And once you’ve decided, you’ll get your choice of a download or a disc. Eagle-eyed deal hunters might note that the prices listed on TurboTax’s site are the same or slightly lower, but those online versions will charge you an additional $37 for state tax software. The downloads and discs that Amazon’s selling by comparison include a free state download, along with free form printing, or a $20 e-file fee.
Axgio Dash wireless headphones, $36 with code 4UEOAIDP
If you love the idea of AirPods or Bragis, but can’t stomach their price tags, Axgio’s Dash wireless headphones are down to an all-time low $36 with promo code 4UEOAIDP, while supplies last.
That’s one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on a pair of truly wireless headphones. I’ve actually tried these myself, and they really do work surprisingly well. Obviously, they aren’t as seamless as AirPods, but it’s tough to complain at less than 25 percent of the price.
The big thing you’ll be missing out on here is a charging case. The buds themselves run for an impressive eight hours at a time, but you’ll have to plug each one in individually with a microUSB cable (it comes with a special cable with two plugs, but it’s very short). That’s a far cry from the convenience of a charging case, but again, they’re $36.
That’s an all-time low price, and over $3 less than the equivalent Eneloop pack. And if you believe some reviewers, these may actually be rebranded Eneloops themselves. We can’t verify that claim (though like Eneloops, they were produced in Japan and pre-charged with solar energy, which seems really specific to be a coincidence), but whatever their origin, they have great reviews, and a stellar price tag.
Nintendo, ever intent on fumbling on the one yard line, made the otherwise-excellent NES Classic’s controller cables shorter than Trump’s fingers. Luckily, you can get a pair of 10-foot extension cables for just $10 today with promo code Z9P5QAUV. You can even chain them together if your couch is really far away from the TV.
Kohree bias light, $9 with code 9QK4O6IU
If you still haven’t tried out a home theater bias light, there’s never been a better time to pick one up. Kohree’s LED bias light strip plugs directly into your TV’s USB port for power, and sticks to the back of the set via built-in adhesive. Once you turn your TV on, the LEDs cast a soft glow on the wall behind them, which can reduce eyestrain when watching in the dark, and improve your TV’s perceived black levels.
We’ve posted lots of deals on these in the past, but $9 is the best price we’ve ever seen.
Homitt 30 oz. tumbler with handle, lid, and two straws, $15 with code HOMITT88
By now, everyone knows you can get a really good vacuum-insulated tumbler for a fraction of the price of a Yeti, but $15 is a particularly good deal for one that includes a lid, a handle, and two steel straws.
6-Pack OxyLED LED bulbs, $12 with code OXYA1999
In case you missed out on a similar sale earlier this week, Amazon will sell you a 6-pack of highly rated OxyLED soft white bulbs for just $12 right now with promo code OXYA1999. These put out the brightness equivalent of a 60W incandescent, but with only 9W of electricity each. Plus, many local utility companies offer rebates when you buy these things, so they should pay for themselves in short order.
Note: These bulbs aren’t dimmable, which isn’t surprising at this price, but just make sure you’re aware.
If the events of today have got you down, both of these discounted Kindle books might get you off the schneid. You won’t even have to donate 27 bucks.
