10 Exclusive Deals on Wirecutter’s Favorite Picks

The Wirecutter Deals team scans the virtual aisles of the internet, searching for great discounts on Wirecutter-recommended products so you don’t have to. In our deal blog posts (like this one), we highlight the discounts that we think Wirecutter readers will love. For more deals information, check out our Deals page, follow us on Twitter @WirecutterDeals, and subscribe to our daily deals newsletter.

There’s something so satisfying about buying a great product that ends up being even better than you imagined. Here at Wirecutter, we recommend the best stuff for most people—so we know a thing or two about gizmos and gadgets that blow us away. Though each of our 4,800 official picks is special in its own way, we’d be lying if we said we didn’t have our favorites.

Over the past year as part of our “52 Things We Love” series, Wirecutter staffers have written odes to their favorite picks, the things they go back to day in and day out. From luxurious towels to mighty air purifiers to super-cheap power cables to inky pens, we’re truly enamored with a lot of our picks—and we want you to adore them just as much we do. Because we know that the only thing better than buying something outstanding is nabbing that pick for a great price, we’ve secured a few special discounts that meet the Wirecutter Deals team’s standards. Nab several of these amazing picks, and you’re likely to be writing a love letter or two of your own.

Experts recommend wearing sunscreen on your face every day—not just when you hit the beach—to protect against sunburn, wrinkles, and skin cancer. Supergoop Play Everyday Lotion is designed for both your body and face, so it’s less likely to sting your eyes once you start sweating. The chemical formula is easy to rub in and is nearly invisible after application on a wide variety of skin tones. Our testers also found its minty, floral scent quite pleasant. Though Supergoop is pretty expensive per ounce when you buy it in a small bottle, the 18-ounce jug is a better deal. To save even more, use the code WIRECUTTER at checkout.

Unless you use unique, complex passwords for each website and digital service—and have a photographic memory to keep everything in order—you need a password manager. Whether you’re working on your personal PC, a shared family computer, or a public computer in the library, a password manager is one of the easiest and most effective ways to keep your accounts secure. A password manager like our top pick, 1Password, not only securely stores your keycodes but also generates new passwords when it’s time to change things up. And if you’re a password-manager rookie, you’ll appreciate 1Password’s plain-language security recommendations (no jargon to translate) and the app’s user-friendly interface. This deal for new 1Password users brings down the price of the individual and family subscriptions to $18 and $30, respectively, making now a good time to snag a subscription in the name of protecting your data.

The Coway AP-1512HH Mighty is a powerhouse of an air purifier. Not only is it the right size for master bedrooms, playrooms, and living rooms, but it’s also the best-performing, most durable purifier we’ve tested. Though many competitors have tried, none have been successful in stealing the title of the best air purifier from the Coway since we first made it our top pick five years ago. In our latest testing, it achieved as much as 98.9% removal of airborne particulates in just 30 minutes—and because it’s so solidly built, it’s likely to deliver the same results for years to come. Just remember to use the code WCCOWAY at checkout to secure both the discounted price and free shipping.

Frontgate Resort Cotton Bath Towel

Buying Options

*At the time of publishing, the price was $32.

If it’s time to replace the threadbare towels you can practically see through with something you actually want to wrap yourself in after a shower, consider the much-beloved Frontgate Resort Cotton Bath Towels. Made of long-staple Turkish cotton, these soft, smooth towels are the most comfortable and luxurious of any we’ve tested, and they can withstand multiple wash cycles without losing their plushness. This discount, which brings the price per towel down to $29 with free shipping with the code WCTOWEL, presents a good opportunity to save on our favorite high-quality towels. Keep in mind that you can use the code only one time per item—but you can use it multiple times if you check out in separate transactions. If you’re interested in picking up a matching, luxurious bath mat, Frontgate is also offering a discount on the hotel-style Frontgate Resort Bath Mat with the code WCMAT.

Where the heck is your charging cable when you need it? If you don’t know, stocking up on a few backup cables that work with a variety of devices is essential, especially when they’re on sale.

  • The Anker PowerLine II USB-C to USB-C Cable works best for folks who have newer phones, tablets, and laptops. As our top USB-C cable pick, this 6-foot fast-charging cable (now available for $9 in black with code WIRECUTTER88) comes backed by a lifetime warranty.
  • If you have an iPhone, the Anker PowerLine II USB-C to Lightning Cable is a better fit. Down to $11 in white with the code WIRECUTTER86, this 6-foot cable is made of thick rubber and can withstand frequent plugging and unplugging.
  • The sturdy and flexible Anker PowerLine Micro-USB Cable, on the other hand, works best with any device that requires a USB-A port (as many Android smartphones, Bluetooth speakers, and baby monitors do). On sale at $9 for three with the code WIRECUTTER81, these 3-foot Micro-USB cables come with an 18-month warranty for additional peace of mind.

Wyze Cam v2

You don’t actually need a dedicated (and pricey) pet camera if you want to keep an eye on your furry friends when you’re not at home. Instead, the best option is the Wyze Cam V2, an indoor security camera. (Wyze recently released the Wyze Cam V3, but Wirecutter hasn’t been able to test that new version extensively yet because of stock shortages.) Compact and supremely affordable even without the deal, the Wyze Cam V2 offers great-quality video, clear sound, and free cloud storage. This camera has two-way audio that projects clearly on both ends—in fact, our tester was able to use it to get her dog to sit on command from another room. Available now for $21 with free shipping, the Wyze Cam V2 also works with Alexa, Google Assistant, and IFTTT.

About 62% of Americans drink coffee every day, and we think all of them should be using the OXO Brew 9-Cup Coffee Maker. Fast and easily programmable, this ever-efficient OXO model brews a pot of coffee in just under seven minutes. Down to $160 with free shipping when you use the code WIRECUTTER at checkout, this machine allows you to program it the night before, so you can wake up to the smell of a fresh pot of coffee.
