Update: OK, maybe you need to check out Amazon’s #1 selling 12-pack of scented markers for $4 after $1 coupon. Or this off brand of colored Pencils for at Walmart for 50 cents.

Just in time for Back to School, Amazon’s got a Gold Box that’s got more crayons/sets, dry erase markers, colored pencils and more than anyone could ever need at deeply discounted 50% off prices. If you are like me, the back to school period can be a little stressful and bam we’re back to the Crayolas for some Adult Coloring Therapy stress relief. Think of it as a two for one Gold Box. Just don’t grind down the sky blue too far

Standouts:

Check out the rest of the Gold Box here and don’t forget those adult coloring books.

BuyDig’s Ebay storefront offers the LG 34-inch (34UM95) UltraWide LED IPS Monitor for $499.99 shipped. This is a savings of $500 off the original price, $355 better than Amazon and the first time its ever gone below $500.

The LG 34UM95 features an UltraWide format with a resolution of 3440×1440 that is capable of displaying two inputs at the same time and has built-in 7W speakers. Additionally, it has HDMI, two Thunderbolt 2 and two USB 3.0 inputs. Thunderbolt 2 features speeds that are significantly faster than the previous generation and can handle DisplayPort as well.

This highly-rated monitor was one of our top picks for high-end displays:

The 21:9 widescreen format is truly an experience all its own. It’s essentially like having two 20.5-inch, 5:4, 1720×1440 displays side by side in one 34-inch panel, and LG also has a Screen Split app that works well for easily docking windows side-by-side in various configurations to get the most out of the wide screen while multitasking. It’s great for pro apps that take full advantage of the wider format for timelines and other features, although it feels a bit vertically challenged in comparison to 4K monitors on the list if a horizontal workflow isn’t your thing.

With your savings, grab an additional Thunderbolt cable to enhance your new setup.

We’re huge fans of the DJI Phantom 4 Quadcopter (review) and while we’ve seen some mild discounts here and there, today we’re seeing the first meaningful $200 discounts from Amazon and B&H Photo (which only charges tax at point of sale in New York State). B&H also includes a 32GB MicroSD card if you need a tie breaker. Amazon sells it for the same $1199 price but a few of its sellers will take a few more bucks off the price.

This is the top pro-sumer drone on the market today. Features:

  • Gimbal-Stabilized 4K / 12MP Camera
  • Visual Sensor for Obstacle Avoidance
  • Streamlined Shell / Magnesium Unibody
  • Top Speed of 44.7mph in Sport Mode
  • Maximum Control Range of 3.1 Miles
  • Visual Tracking of Moving Subject
  • Up to 32.8′ Vision Positioning Altitude
  • TapFly – Fly With a Tap of the Finger
  • Avoids Obstacles When Returning Home
  • Up to 28 Minutes Flying Time

If you’ve had your eyes on the Phantom 4 like I have, now may be the time to take flight. expand full story

One of the things that almost everyone nowadays needs is more outlets. Another thing that people need is fast USB charging in their outlets. And if we’re making up some magical device, we might as well give it great surge protection and let’s, for giggles, make it cost only $9.83 Prime shipped. 

Boom! This product actually exists. The CyberPower CSP600WSU Surge Protector 6-AC Outlet Swivel with 2 USB (2.1A) Charging Ports is somehow under $10 bucks at Amazon. Cyberpower is a great brand and they know their power/surge protection – this one gets 4.2/5 stars. The AC outlets swivel and the USB ports aren’t the wussy 1A ones but will actually quickly charge most devices at 2.1A.

  • 6 Surge Protected Swivel Outlets – 1200 Joules of Surge Protection Rating to protect home and office computers, electronics, and home theater equipment
  • (2) USB Charging Ports – 2.1 Amp (shared). Perfect for keeping tablets, smart phones, and other rechargeable electronics ready to use.
  • Direct plug-in. Two sets of rotatable outlets (3 on each side) allows for convenient angles to plug in equipment
  • Green LED “Protected” and “Grounded” indicators. EMI/RFI line noise filtering helps connected components to perform at their peak
  • CyberPower Limited Lifetime Warranty and $75,000 Connected Equipment Warranty

I’m grabbing a few of these. See you at checkout.  expand full story

We’ve all heard the rumors. Nor more headphone jack on the new iPhone and then of course everyone else will follow suit. All of your 3.5mm stuff goes in the trash heap?

Well, I’m not sure how it will all play out but I wouldn’t mind spending just $30 on a pair of these super premium JBL Synchros headphones with a universal mic in white or Black at Amazon even if I ditch them with a new round of phones later this year and next. Features:

  • Ultra-light, die-cast aluminum construction
  • Premium 10mm driver for professional audio sound with PureBass performance
  • Angled ear tips for improved comfort and stability
  • Tangle resistant flat cable with Universal Remote
  • 3 sizes of silicone ear tips as well as 1 pair of Comply foam tips for superior fit
