Amazon offers its AmazonBasics 0.5-Cubic Foot Biometric Fingerprint Safe for $69.99 shipped. Regularly $110, this is a new all-time low and is the first discount we’ve tracked. A biometric safe is awesome as you don’t have to remember a combination in order to access its contents. If you can’t get the fingerprint reader to work for whatever reason, there’s also a key-based backup to let you in. Rated 3.9/5 stars.

If you need portable security, check out this SentrySafe Fire Safe at $20 shipped. It features a key lock, a carry handle, and will keep your precious documents safe from home or natural disasters. It won’t hold quite as much as the above AmazonBasics safe, however.
