Scotch Thermal Laminator for $17 today.
Free shipping with most $25+ Amazon orders.
This thing has been at the $17 price about twice a year for the last 2 years.
Be sure you want one and have a use for one, because there is not a good secondary market for these things.
It will be hard to re-sell this, because very few people out there are actively looking to buy a laminator.
A Laminator hardens paper documents with see-through plastic, useful for protecting important documents such as schedules, recipes, luggage tags, crafts, and important pages that you'd like protected.
One good example are the Google backup codes that someone can get with their Google accounts.
The backup codes are assigned to your account as a way to access your account when your password, your email addresses, and all your authentication methods fail.
A printout of your backup codes should be kept in your wallet, and could be helpful if laminated to avoid being damaged.

- Portable Battery Car Jump Starter for $80 (expired)
PowerAll PBJS12000R Portable Power Bank is meant to jump start a car.
It weighs 3 pounds and is portable enough to keep in your trunk, closet, or garage for when you need to jump start your car.
It has a 12,000 mAh battery capacity.
It can also charge your portable phones and tablets, but at $80 for a 12,000mAh battery, there are far better deals out there on 15,000mAh batteries specifically designed to charge your mobile devices.
- Sandisk 256GB SSD for $87 (expired: 3:30pm EDT, sold out)
SanDisk Ultra Plus 256GB Solid State Drive is currently on sale for $86.81 (34¢/GB).
This is a great deal, and $13 less than a previous hot deal on this drive.
Many 128GB SSDs can be found for around $85, so a 256GB for $87 is a hot deal.

They do have some good deals, but be sure you know what you are getting.

- Canon Color Photo Printer for $75
Canon Pixma MX922 Color Printer with built-in Wifi for $75.
It's about $35 less than what it would normally go for, and supports AirPrint (for printing from a iPhone or iPad).
It also supports Duplex Printing, meaning it can automatically print on both sides of a page without having to turn the pages over, which saves paper.
The best part of this printer deal is that you can replace the ink cartridges with third-party ones.
When the included black, yellow, cyan, and magenta cartridges run out, you can find "OEM" cartridges on Ebay, which run about $17 to $20 for a 15-pack of cartridges (about $1.33 per cartridge).
- 5-Port USB Charger for $20
Anker 40-watt 5-port USB charger for $26, and code
applies $6 off during checkout.
Like most phone chargers, this supports electricity from 100-240 volt inputs.
US-based electrical outlets use 110-volt, but some countries have 240-volt.
The wall chargers included with an iPhone/iPad as well as many mobile devices already support currencies of higher voltage.
All you need is an international plug adapter so the plug fits.
This will charge up to 5 USB devices from one wall outlet.
It is capable of charging up to 4 tablets at once, or up to 5 phones at once.

- Deals on Some Logitech Input Devices
8 Logitech computer input devices are on sale today, including
- Deals on some Computer Components and Accessories
Amazon.com has put up a one-day sale on a lot of computer parts & accessories, including Corsair power supplies (our favorite brand of power supply), EVGA video cards (our favorite brand of video cards), Sandisk solid state drives, Intel CPUs, and Asus motherboards.
Also, they are offering a Kingston HyperX 1TB USB3.0 Flash Drive for $830 (about $200 off).
It is incredibly expensive for most people, but could be useful for anyone who wants a small, fast, and personal backup storage device that they can keep in their pocket (as opposed to a portable hard drive which is bigger).
- Seiki 22" Old-looking 1080p HDTV for $100
This is a deal because the price is $70 to $120 less than what everyone else sells it for (including sellers on Ebay), and it has positive reviews.
The old-look can be a really cool feature in a room, however paying $100 is just a fair (not great) price for a 22-inch HDTV.
- Anker Astro E5 15,000mAh Portable Battery for $36
Anker Astro E5 15,000mAh-capacity battery for charging phones and tablets for $50 with free shipping.
During checkout, apply code AASTROE5 to get $14 off, making it $36.
This is a great deal on a great quality portable battery.
This deal works on your choice of either the Black or the White model.
We have one, and really like the piece of mind while traveling.
Being able to charge the phone whenever we want is better than camping around a power outlet.
It provides two USB ports: one which provides 1 amp of charging power, and one 2 amps of charging power.
Both ports can charge a phone, so you can charge 2 phones at once.
Most tablets will only use the 2amp port.
It weighs about a pound.
An iPhone 5 has a 1,400mAh battery capacity and an iPad 4th Generation has a 11,560mAh battery capacity, so the fully charged 15,000mAh battery pack should be able to fully charge an iPhone 5 around 9 times or fully charge an iPad 4 once.
- Timex Watch for $20
7 Timex watches are on sale for $20 each.

- Refurbished Kindle Paperwhite for $85
The Kindle Paperwhite usually goes for over $100.
They are selling a refurbished (previously returned, then fixed) Kindle Paperwhite today for $85.
Includes a full one-year warranty, the same warranty offered on the regular non-refurbished one.
The Kindle Paperwhite has a touch screen, and a better interface than the original Kindle.
The Paperwhite has a front-lit screen, so you can read in the dark without producing harmful eyestrain that a tablet or phone's back-lit screen can do.
However, keep in mind the original Kindle is still available for $69 and is a fantastic e-reader for books.
We are very happy with ours.
It does not have a built-in light, so it will require light to read at night, however it is still a great value at $69.

- Roku 3 Streaming Media Player for $85
The Roku 3 usually sells for $90 to $95, but Amazon has it on sale today for $85.
Roku lets you access movies on Netflix, TV shows on Hulu Plus, and many other streaming media services.
You can also listen to music for free through Pandora and Spotify, radio stations around the world through TuneIn, music videos through Vevo, and get news with Huffington Post and SkyNews.
Many Smart TVs and Blu-Ray players always have built-in apps for doing streaming media.
Roku is meant for someone who does not already have that stuff.
Roku 3 includes a remote control, and also can be controlled by an app on your smartphone or tablet.
In our opinion, Roku 3 is the best streaming media player on the market, because if offers great features, a lot of streaming media apps, and a user-friendly interface.
AppleTV is nice if you use iTunes a lot.
For someone looking to get rid of the high cost of cable TV, a Hulu Plus membership is $8/month and streams many TV shows on demand, with many episodes available after the day they air on regular TV.
If you like to watch live sports, however, only cable/satellite will let you do that.
Amazon FireTV is also available.
We know little about this device other than its ability to voice-search for movies and shows.

- $5 off $25 when installing & using the 1Button App
Install the Amazon 1Button App into your Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, or Mozilla Firefox web browser by using the link provided on that page, and you will get $5 credit toward your first $25 purchase using that app.
If you don't like the app, you can always uninstall it later.
Most receivers have 2 separate zones that require the second zone to work off of an analog audio source, but this is one of the few receivers that allows two speaker zones to work off of the same digital audio source.
It copies the digital source to both speaker zones, which can make it much easier to connect and use a second speaker zone than the way other receivers do it.
This receiver can be controlled by the Yamaha app on iTunes and Android, if connected to your home's ethernet port.
If you don't have an available Ethernet port near the Receiver, get something like a TrendNet TEW-687GA for $28 which bridges a single Ethernet port with a Wifi network, wirelessly connecting to your Wifi router.
