  • ThisWorx Car Vacuum Cleaner 2.0 (white) – $34.99 (13% off)
    • One of our personal favorite car vacs, the ThisWorx doesn’t disappoint. It’s nearly always the best-selling vacuum on Amazon and for good reason. It utilizes a 110W motor for suction, comes with 3 attachments (flathead, extendable and brush nozzle), a carrying bag, a filter-cleaning brush and a removable and washable HEPA filter. It’s got a 16-foot power cord to make maneuvering easier. The best part? It only weighs 2.6 lbs.
  • ThisWorx Cordless Car Vacuum – $41.99 (w/ $8 off digital coupon)
    • Very similar to the vac above, but this one is cordless! According to the listing it features “a rechargeable lithium ion battery that holds its charge for up to 18 months,” though, we can only assume that means when it’s not in use. Sadly, there’s no time listed for how long you can use it for on a full charge, so we still recommend the cheaper corded version above, but if you want to take a swing, the option is available for you.


  • VacLife Tire Inflator Portable Air Compressor – $33.99 (24% off)
    • This portable tire inflator plugs right into your car’s 12V lighter port, has a 9.8 ft power cord, and has an automatic shut off capability. “This tire inflator is not applicable for any large vehicles with TIRE PRESSURE > 50 PSI and TIRE WIDTH > 245 MM such as truck, vans and off-road vehicles
