RavPower 10,400mAh Portable Battery Charger for $16 from Amazon with code RAV10400 .

We bring ours when out all day, to keep our devices charged when no USB/electrical outlet is handy.
This is especially helpful when flying on an airplane or attending a show/meeting/concert, where a phone running out of battery can cause problems.

- Garmin Nuvi 57LM for $80
Garmin Nuvi 57LM GPS Navigator for $80 with free shipping.
Normally about $95 to $150.
Includes lifetime map updates (some other Garmin devices do charge a subscription fee to download map updates).
It's no secret companies like Garmin are getting crushed by Google Maps, Apple Maps, Waze, and other phone navigation apps.
There are still some big advantages to using a dedicated GPS navigator:
Works separately than your phone, so making/receiving calls does not affect navigation.
No cell signal needed to navigate the maps.
Garmin only needs to see the sky (so it won't work in tunnels), but will work in areas that have weak or no cell signal.
Longer battery life than navigating on a phone.
This should give at least 10 hours of navigation on battery, when not plugged in to your car's electrical outlet.
Cheaper than buying an iPhone or Android phone.
Bigger screen and easier to mount on the windsheild than most smartphones.
The biggest disadvantages of this Garmin model:
Lack of traffic updates.
Some Garmin models can help you avoid traffic delays, but even those may not work as well as Waze and Google Maps.
Includes North America maps only.
If you travel overseas, you will need to leave your Garmin behind.

- $10 Digital Credit When Opening an Amazon Cash Account With $50
Amazon Cash works like store credit that you can apply at participating stores.
At this time, only a small group of stores are participating, but CVS and Speedway are on the list.
If you fund your Amazon Cash account with $50, Amazon will give you $10 in "digital credit" that can apply toward purchases at the Amazon Appstore, Kindle books, digital video, digital music, and digital games.
This would certainly be a better deal if your $10 could apply at the store you are spending $50 at, but still could be a good deal for someone who regularly shops at CVS Pharmacy and Speedway and wants something for free.

For today, Amazon has 40% off of some Vibram Merrell shoes.
We love our Merrell shoes for running, working out, and wearing in a casual work environment.
Unlike most shoes which have thick bottom padding, Merrell shoes are more of a "minimalist" style.
They are flexible and fit more like a glove.
It's not the kind of shoe many people may prefer, but we found them to give a healthier posture.
Shoes with padding train your foot and posture to rely on padding.
Here is an article on this.
TP-Link 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch for $19.30.

- Obihai Voice-Over-IP Home Phone Adapter for $35
For the next couple days, Newegg is selling the OBi200 Voice Over IP telephone adapter for $35 when applying code EMCRCBE38 in the cart ($48.25 before coupon).
Normally sells for $50.
The OBi plugs into any home telephone, giving you free home phone service.
We own the 2-line OBi202 version, and love it.
Call quality is better than mobile/cell phones.
All calls (incoming and outgoing) within the US and Canada are free with Google Voice.
Google voice and voicemail integrates nicely with the home phone, computer, and mobile phone.
Easy to add another line.
Just get a second OBi200 or buy the 2-line version.
Emergency 911 calls do not work with Google Voice.
Obi does offer 911 service through Anveo for $15/year, and is easy to add to the free Google Voice.
We recommend adding this, though it is not required.
A regular home telephone line can still operate during a power outage, however the OBi will not.
If your electricity shuts off or Internet connection dies, the OBi will not work.
Seagate 2TB Hard Drive for $64.
This "Surveillance" model is designed for constant use, like how surveillance systems constantly record video or backups.
Since the drive is not designed for performance, it's not the best choice for a desktop computer.
