VPNs are in the news these
days
, and with good reason. So if you’re curious to sign up
and start protecting your browsing history and personal data
(or, you know, getting around websites’ geoblocks), NordVPN
charges less per month than a
typical trip to Starbucks.

NordVPN has long been one of the
most popular and reliable VPN providers out there, and if you
sign up for a one-year membership, promo code
VIP70 will drop your annual price from $69 to
$48. If you’re sure you want to commit, use this link instead to get a
special two year plan for $79 with code
2YSpecial2017. Lifehacker has recommended Nord
in some previous guides, but if you
have any firsthand experience with the service, sound off in
the comments!

Even if you aren’t a football fan, you can probably find
something you’d use in
Amazon’s one-day tailgating sale
.

The
selection
is dominated by coolers, many of which carry NFL
or NCAA team branding (just click through to the product page
to select your team). But you’ll also find folding chairs (some
with built-in coolers!), drinking vessels, and even a propane
stove on sale. But just remember that
these prices are only available today
, so you’ll need to do
some clock management to take advantage.


So you want to try a standing desk, but you’re
not ready to commit to it for eight hours a day…what do you
do? You buy this
monitor riser for $150

This
riser
arrives fully assembled, and just sits on top of your
existing desk. Put your monitor(s) on the top shelf, your
keyboard and mouse on the bottom, and use its integrated spring
system to raise the entire setup from a sitting to standing
position within seconds. I own a very similar product from
Varidesk (which was much more expensive, by the way), and I
absolutely love it.

Target has a ton of really good home goods, and you can get a
$10 gift card if you buy $50 worth of
it today, or a $40 gift card if you spend $150

Like the idea of a Belkin WeMo Switch, but not willing to spend
$40-$50 to try one out? This
TP-Link alternative
has a nearly identical feature set for
half the price.

Just like a WeMo switch,
TP-Link’s Smart Plug
will let you turn appliances on and
off from your smartphone, and set schedules to toggle them
automatically. The only major feature it’s lacking is IFTTT
support, but it will integrate with an Amazon Alexa
for voice control.

The Shark Navigator Lift-Away is your favorite affordable vacuum
cleaner
, but it’s the step-up
Professional model that’s on sale today for $150

to the standard Lift-Away, the Professional includes a longer
power cord, a better carpet brush, and a microfiber dusting
attachment. It doesn’t suck, is what I’m saying, except in the
ways it should. Today’s price is one of the best we’ve seen,
and roughly $50 less than usual.

The
SmartCharge
is a Bluetooth FM transmitter that takes the
Bluetooth signal from your phone, and rebroadcasts it the FM
radio station of your choice, giving you truly wireless audio
and handsfree calls in older vehicles that don’t have Bluetooth
built in. And since this is an Anker brand, you also get two
high speed USB charging ports.

We’ve seen plenty of products that do this before, but the

SmartCharge
has one more trick up its sleeve: a car finder.
Once you turn off your car and Bluetooth disconnects, the Roav
app will drop a pin on a map, and help you find your vehicle
later. You probably don’t need that feature very often, but it
could come in handy on confusing city streets, or sprawling
stadium parking lots.

Update: With apologies to anyone that bought
this for $90,
it has now dropped to $85
, matching the deals we typically
see on eBay.

We see 15% iTunes gift card discounts on eBay from time to
time, but today
Amazon’s offering a 10% discount on $100 gift cards
, the
first iTunes credit discount they’ve ever offered, at least to
my knowledge.

Obviously, 10% < 15%, but if you have some iTunes gift cards
you want to use, or the
Amazon Prime Store Card
which gets you 5% back on Amazon
purchases, this could make sense. I’m going to buy this and
spend every cent on iOS 11 AR games.

As always, different games are locked behind different price

includes Middle Earth Shadow of War and a Shadow
