Aukey

Can you turn your bedside lamp on and off from across the room, or adjust its brightness and color temperature with just a tap? If not, it sounds like your lamp isn't pulling its weight and you should replace it with a smarter, more attentive model. You know, like the Aukey Smart Table Lamp. It's a charming little bedside light that can also save you a few dollars. Right now you can save 22% when you buy the Aukey lamp on Amazon using promo code DK2SXWKZ. Usually $43, the code drops the price down to $34.39.

This lamp connects to your Wi-Fi network and can be controlled via a smartphone app or voice commands to Google Assistant and Alexa. You can also control the lamp directly using its touch-sensitive top. You can control the brightness and color temperature -- vary it from a warm 3,000K at bedtime to a cool 6,000K when you're trying to concentrate and read or get work done at your laptop.

If you prefer to go a bit psychedelic, you can opt for the RGB mode and let the lamp display a rainbow of colors instead. The lamp can cycle through its 256-color palette or you can stop on any specific color you like.

The best price on AirPods is $129 right now – CNET

airpods

Apple AirPods are admittedly overpriced -- you can get true-wireless earbuds that give AirPods a run for their money for, well, a lot less money. But there's no denying that AirPods are a great product, and there's no shame in wanting them rather than a more generic model. We'd actively discourage you from spending $160 on them, though, since they're on sale so frequently. Case in point: Right now you can get Apple AirPods with the wired charging case for $129 at Amazon. That's the lowest price we could find right now, and it's at about $10 less than most other retailers. If that deal doesn't last, you can get AirPods for the same $129 at Staples, too. 

And remember that you don't have to pay Apple's crazy premium to get a wireless charging case. You can get a third-party wireless charging case for your AirPods for as little as $20.

This article has been previously published. It has been updated with the latest deal on AirPods with wired charging case.

3 weekend deals: 20% off speakers, 30% off Monos luggage and 44% off a 3-axis stabilizer – CNET

Deal

Savings

Price

Welcome to the weekend. There's a slew of ways to save some money right now, so I've rounded up some intriguing (but utterly unrelated) deals all in one place for your browsing pleasure. And if you have a few minutes to spare, remember to check out the Cheapskate Show podcast, in which Rick and I discuss ways to save money on your tech. There's a link to the podcast at the bottom of this article, or you can subscribe via your favorite podcast app -- find us on Apple PodcastsGoogle Podcasts and Spotify.

Zhiyun

If you're serious about shooting video, you really need a three-axis stabilizer -- a handheld device that smooths out all the jitter from your video no matter what kind of side-to-side, up-and-down or back-and-forth movement you make. It's a modern take on the Steadicam and is an essential tool for stepping up your video quality -- just ask any Instagram influencer. 

This model regularly sells on Amazon for $90, but today only you can get it for $50.15 -- that's 44% off. It has an integrated 4,000-mAh battery for steadying your phone, and can also be used to charge your other devices. It has pan, lock, follow and POV modes, and can also perform object tracking, dolly zooms, panorama, time-lapse, motion-lapse and more.

This isn't a known brand, but FakeSpot gives the Amazon page's 4-star rating a thumbs-up. That said, if this doesn't pan out (sorry, that was a video pun) you can always return it. 

Tribit

From now through Sept. 30, you can save 20% -- that's $10 -- on the Tribit StormBox Micro when you clip the coupon on the Amazon product page. 

The StormBox Micro is a Bluetooth speaker that includes a flexible, tear-resistant strap that you can use to attach to your bike, a backpack or anything else you can get the strap around. It offers eight hours of playtime on a charge and is waterproof with an IP67 rating, so go ahead and play music in the rain. You can use it on its own or pair the Micro with another speaker for true stereo. 

Monos

You might have already noticed that luggage brand Away is having its first-ever sale right now with many items 50% off. But stuff is selling out fast over there right now. If you need some luggage but can't get what you want from Away, now you have another sale option: Monos is having a 30% off sale on everything across the site when you use the code SUMMER30 at checkout.

Get this combination wet/dry vac and pressure washer for just $177 – CNET

sun-joe
Sun Joe

Your robot vacuum is good for routine cleaning, but isn't enough for every job. Heck, for some cleanups, even your upright vacuum may not be enough. Some jobs simply demand a wet/dry vac. The Sun Joe 2-in-1 electric pressure washer is just such a beast, able to handle large and messy jobs both indoors and out. If you've been eyeing the Sun Joe for over $200, here's some good news: Right now you can get the Sun Joe 2-in-1 electric pressure washer for $177 when you apply promo code CNETJOE at checkout. This is an exclusive deal for Cheapskate readers at Daily Steals, and it's about $55 cheaper than the current price on Amazon.

The Sun Joe SPX7001E is a 2-in-1 electric pressure washer and indoor-outdoor wet/dry vacuum that comes with a six-piece accessory kit, giving you an adjustable spray wand, foam cannon, all-purpose nozzle, crevice nozzle, dusting brush and 20-ft high-pressure hose. It's powered by a 13-amp pressure motor that can generate 1,500 psi. On the vacuum front, it has a 5.7-amp wet/dry vacuum that generates over 459 cfm of airflow.

One of the best qualities of this Sun Joe vac is its versatility; not only can it handle both indoor and outdoor jobs, but it can switch up tasks without requiring you to switch tools. It weighs 17 pounds and rolls on oversize wheels, so it's very portable and easy to move around and outside the house. And the unit comes with a two-year warranty.

The Cheapskate Show Podcast: The truth about cheap home-theater projectors – CNET

projector
GRC

In this week's episode of The Cheapskate Show, Rick is excited about a new class of inexpensive portable projectors, such as one that costs a mere $100. Dave is less enthused and explains some of the reasons you might want to be careful before spending money on this kind of projector. Want to see what a projector suitable for your media room might look like? Check out CNET's roundup of the best projectors for 2020

That's not all, though. We actually kick off the podcast with a conversation about Walmart Plus, a subscription service that might become your new alternative to Amazon Prime. Or not -- listen for our take on this new service.

We also talk about free TV streaming -- thanks to Netflix and Pluto TV, there's more of it than ever before right now. We discuss some new free channels that should appeal to anyone nostalgic for the 1970s, and recommend some great new movies that have recently arrived on free streaming services. 

Finally, Rick's Best Under $20 product this week is an LED light strip you can use to add voice-controlled illumination anywhere in your home.  

You can listen to the new episode (and past ones) right here:

Celebrate Psycho’s 60th anniversary by buying it in 4K for $9 – CNET

psycho
Paramount Pictures

Alfred Hitchcock's classic horror film, Psycho, is now 60 years old -- the movie's general release was Sept. 8, 1960. What better way to celebrate the debut of this controversial film than by watching it, or a handful of other Hitchcock classics, in glorious 4K? Well, good news: You can buy Psycho in 4K for just $9 from Fandango Now. That's down from the regular price of $14.

If you prefer, you can also find Psycho in 4K for $9 from Vudu.

It's nice to save 35% on the 4K version of Psycho, but I should point out that you can actually buy the movie a little cheaper. Amazon Prime has it for $5, for example, but it's not in 4K -- it's only HD. If you're going to buy the movie, I'd definitely opt for the higher-resolution edition, which I've only managed to find at Fandango and Vudu for this discounted price. 

To celebrate the anniversary, Fandango Now and Vudu have three other Hitchcock classics in 4K for $9 each as well:

Of course, those movies might just whet your appetite for vintage Hitchcock, so if you want to see the whole selection -- for purchase or for rent -- check out the whole Hitchcock collection at Fandango Now and all the Hitchcock movies at Vudu

Stream your favorite shows in 4K for $30 with the Roku Premiere – CNET

roku-premiere-4k
Roku

After Amazon's big sale on all its gadgets last week, including selling its Fire TV Stick for just $35, perhaps Roku decided it needed to get in on some of the discount action. Because right now you can get the Roku Premiere 4K streaming media player for $30 flat. That's 25% off the regular price of $40. The lowest price we've ever seen on this is $29 at Amazon, and it's not even in stock there right now.

As you probably know, there aren't many substantive differences among Roku devices -- you get all the same channels, for example, and the Premiere has the same 1080p, 4K, and HDR visuals as other models. Where this Premiere falls short compared to, say, the Roku Ultra is that the Premiere has 802,11 b/g/n single-band wireless, while the Ultra has 802.11ac dual-band MIMO and Ethernet Port. The Premiere also comes with the simple remote, so there's no voice control or personal shortcuts. 

But if you can look past differences like that, the Premiere is a great little 4K streamer, and you probably won't see a price this low again until Black Friday

The best Labor Day deals still available: Lenovo laptops, an LG OLED TV, a Polk soundbar and more – CNET

Like many holidays, Labor Day -- which honors the achievements and contributions of American workers -- has evolved into a big sales event. And despite the weirdness of living through a global pandemic, this year is no exception. While a lot of Labor Day deals are gone, plenty of them are still in full swing.

Some Labor Day sales kicked off late last week, but they're continuing well into this week. Below, we've rounded up the best of the best Labor Day deals and special offers, but keep checking back as we continue to add more sale items and as other deals expire.

And while you're hunting around for Labor Day deals, here are a few others you should consider checking out:

Labor Day 2020 deals available right now


Sarah Tew/CNET

It's not the best Sling deal we've seen, but it's still good if you want a cheap month of streaming goodness. Another option: Prepay for two months of Sling and get a free AirTV Mini streaming device -- an $80 value.

Sarah Tew/CNET

When: Right now

Lenovo's Labor Day doorbuster sale has savings on dozens of laptops. Check out the deal on the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon, usually priced at $2,149 but selling right now for $900 when you use coupon code THINKDEAL at checkout. 

The X1 Carbon is a best-in-class ultraportable that combines premium design appeal with business-grade privacy and security features. Read CNET's review of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7.

There are a lot more deals -- see all the Lenovo laptops on sale on the site's Labor Day sale page. Here are a few others to look out for:

LG

When: Right now

The LG OLED CX TV has the hands-down best picture quality we've ever tested at CNET, and this 77-inch version of the TV is on sale for $3,800 at Best Buy -- $3,750 if you have a free Best Buy membership. That's its best price ever and makes it competitive on price with much less expensive sets. 

Amazon

When: Right now

The Doorbell 3 is the latest version of the Ring and has only been available since the start of summer. Under the hood it features dual 2.4 and 5GHz Wi-Fi for better streaming video. The original deal is expired, but Amazon is now selling it for $200 and throwing in the $90 Amazon Echo Show 5 for free. Read our Ring Video Doorbell 3 review.

Fixd

When: Right now

The Fixd is a sensor that plugs into your car's onboard diagnostic port (OBD2, for short). The sensor sends detailed information to an app on your phone to let you know about the health and well-being of your car. Regularly $60, you can get it right now (while supplies last) for just $20. 

Fixd says the sensor works with both internal combustion and hybrid cars, and is able to diagnose about 7,000 error codes, which it tries to translate into plain English so you don't just know what component is failing, but how severe the problem is and what the implications of the issue are.

Polk

When: Right now 

The original Labor Day sale is expired, but Polk is now selling the S2 ultraslim soundbar for $30 off its list price. It's been cheaper -- the S2 was as low as $160 in the spring, but this is still a good deal. It connects to your TV with HDMI ARC so you can control everything with a single remote control. It features five full-range drivers and a wireless subwoofer, supports Bluetooth and specifically targets center-channel audio to make sure dialogue is clear and understandable. 

Eargo

When: Right now

The Eargo Neo HiFi invisible in-ear hearing aids are available for $2,700 when you apply promo code LABORDAY20 at checkout. That's $250 off the list price.

That's $2,700 for the pair of hearing aids and all the accessories. If you're thinking in earbud terms that might sound like a lot of money, but hearing aid wearers are used to substantially higher prices. In fact, it's not unusual to pay about this much for each individual earbud rather than the complete set. But despite the far more affordable price, the Neo HiFi aids are designed to deliver really high sound quality, with features such as wind noise reduction and feedback cancellation. They're also fully invisible in-ear buds, and rely on a "flexi palm design," which are little treelike spikes that position the buds in your ear.

Jackbox Games

When: Right now (through Sept. 8)

I make no secret of my adoration of Jackbox games like You Don't Know Jack, Quiplash and Drawful. They're hilarious party games that everyone plays using their own phone as a combination remote control/buzzer while crowded around the TV. For Labor Day, everything on the site is marked down with some prices up to 50% off. 

Here are some of the highlights:

Zagg: Sitewide sale on all cases and accessories (Update: expired)

You save 25%

Zagg

When: Right now (through Sept. 8)

Zagg is having a sitewide sale from Sept. 4-8. You can take 25% off any purchase including phone cases, keyboard covers, power banks and more. 

Roborock E4 robot vacuum cleaner: $209 (Update: expired)

You save $51 with code

Roborock

When: Right now (through Sept. 7)

Regularly priced at $270, the E4 is one of Roborock's most popular models, particularly among pet owners thanks to its robust 2,000 Pa of suction in carpet boost mode. The vacuum's large battery can run for about 200 minutes on a charge (over 2,000 square feet) and Roborock cites an oversized dustbin so you don't need to empty it as often.

The Roborock E4 is about $50 off during the sale, selling for $209 when you apply promo code ROBOROCKE45 at checkout. 

Roborock S6 MaxV robot vacuum and mop: $705 (Update: expired)

You save $45 with code

Roborock

When: Right now (through Sept. 7)

Roborock's newest robot is a combination vacuum and mop, and it's $45 off for the holiday weekend when you apply promo code ROBOS6MAXV at checkout. 

The S6 MaxV includes a pair of cameras and uses what it calls "ReactiveAI Obstacle Avoidance" to identify and avoid obstacles that it encounters on the floor, so it goes around toys, shoes and the inevitable puppy accident, rather than plowing through it and turning a small mess into a big disaster. 

It has a maximum suction of 2,500 Pa and uses lidar for accurate, optimized navigation and automatic room recognition. It's app and voice controllable, and the S6 MaxV can be programmed with up to 10 no-go zones, 10 no-mop zones and 10 invisible barriers on each level of your home.

Roborock H6 Cordless Stick Vacuum: $400 (Update: expired)

You save $50

Roborock

Roborock's newest cordless stick vacuum is the H6, and it's $50 off for Labor Day week. This new vacuum generates a respectable 25,000 Pa of suction and can run for a maximum of about 90 minutes in eco-mode (or 10 minutes running full-bore in max mode). It features HEPA air filtration and weighs in at just 3 pounds. 

BlazePod: All kits on sale sitewide (Update: expired)

You save 20%

BlazePod

When: Right now (through Sept. 7)

BlazePods is an at-home, pro-level training system. Using interactive, touch-sensitive pods, you can choose from among an enormous library of workouts and games to work on balance, coordination, core, flexibility, power, spatial awareness, speed, stamina and more. With kids schooling from home and adults working from home -- and gyms still closed in most locations -- this is a great solution for exercising in place. 

During this Labor Day sale, all kits are 20% off sitewide. Exception: Bundles aren't included in the sale.

Segway Ninebot ES2 scooter: $399 (Update: expired)

You save $190

Segway

This is the lowest price on record for Segway's foldable scooter, which can reach speeds of 15 mph and travel up to 15 miles on a charge. It weighs just under 28 pounds and incorporates both mechanical and electric braking systems.

NutriBullet: Sitewide sale on juicers and accessories (Update: expired)

You save 20% with code

NutriBullet

When: Right now (through Sept. 7)

Save 20% on any NutriBullet product when you use promo code LABOR20 at checkout.

This Labor Day weekend sale includes all NutriBullet blenders, from personal models to full-size blenders, juicers and more. 

Ring alarms (2nd generation): 20% off (Update: expired)

You save as much as $70

Ring

When: Right now 

Ring is running a Labor Day deal on four of its second-generation alarm kits. They're all 20% off for Labor Day, so you'll save anywhere from $40 to $70, depending upon which one you choose. Here are the select items on sale:

Tribit QuietPlus 72 ANC Wireless Headphones: $35 (Update: expired)

You save $35 with code and coupon

Tribit

When: Right now (through Sept. 7)

The Tribit QuietPlus 72 headphones are usually priced $70, but they're on sale for $35 during Labor Day when you apply the coupon on the product page and add promo code LBDQPLUS at checkout. These compact over-the-ear headphones charge via USB-C and deliver about 30 hours of runtime between charges. More importantly, these are noise-canceling headphones that Tribit says can block up to 32dB of ambient sound. 

Courant wireless chargers and accessories sitewide sale (Update: expired)

Courant

When: Right now (through Sept. 7)

Wireless chargers are a dime a dozen (not literally, of course) but Courant makes chargers that elevate your desktop (again, not literally). Wrapped in a pebble-grain Italian leather and available in an assortment of colors, these are snazzy. Right now, everything is 25% off sitewide, with the discount applied automatically at checkout, and monogramming is included for free.
