Kinda Deal: 2-pack Anker 6-ft MFi Lightning cables for $13 Prime shipped (Reg. $16)

AnkerDirect via Amazon offers a 2-pack of its highly-rated 6-ft MFi Lightning cables for $15.59, but coupon code B94P7W9E knocks your final price down to $12.99. Free shipping is available for Prime members and orders of $35+. This is an OK deal since Anker is currently charging $8.99 for a single 6-ft. cable, but just yesterday we featured the 9-ft version for $6 a piece and a 3-pack for $15 (that offer expired within a few hours).

expiredMonoprice MFi Apple-Certified Lightning Cable Sale: 10-ft. in multiple colors $8.50 shipped (Reg. $13), more

Monoprice has launched a fresh sale on its Select Series of MFi Apple-Certified Lightning Cables offering up to 35% off regular prices plus free shipping. Often times, Monoprice’s shipping rates kill the value of its Lightning cables, so you’ll want to take advantage of this sale.

Our top-pick from Monoprice’s promotion is the 10-ft. Select Series Lightning Cable in five colors for $8.49 shipped. This cable typically goes for $13 + shipping fees. Aside from passing Apple’s MFi Certification program, this cable uses 24K gold plated connectors, polycarbonate heads and includes a lifetime warranty. These longer cables are perfect for your car, nightstand or for charging the Apple TV’s new Lightning-compatible remote.

You’ll also find Select Series cables in six-inch and three to six-foot varieties as a part of this sale. Monoprice’s Cabernet Series, which features a tangle-free and flat-cable design plus aluminum connectors, is also a part of this promotion but does not include free shipping.

expiredStock up on MFi Lightning cables w/ Monoprice’s discounted bundles: 3-Pack for $20 shipped, more

We’ve been swimming in MFi Lightning cable deals over the past few weeks. Amazon typically has the best prices, but free shipping only applies to Prime members and orders of $35. Monoprice consistently has low prices, but shipping usually kills any exceptional deals.

However, Monoprice now has a range of discounted Lightning cable bundles, all of which include free shipping. There are some similarly priced deals on Amazon, but those cable makers aren’t as highly regarded as Monoprice. That being said, now’s the time to stock up on Lightning cables — get one for your car, office, bedroom, family room, etc.

expiredNomad 40% off: save on carabiner and key sized MFi Lightning cables, more

Nomad is taking 40% off all of its unique MFi Lightning cables on the market when you enter coupon code NOMAD40 at checkout.

My favorite Nomad accessory is the NomadKey (pictured above). This handy charger is just about the size of a key and is durable enough to dangle an iPhone, flexible enough to bend at a 90 degree angle, and is Apple-certified to charge and sync your Lightning equipped devices. Of course, you can pick up much longer MFi Lightning cables for less, but they don’t offer the same convenience that the Chargekey does. Get it for $17.40 with the aforementioned Black Friday coupon.
