It doesn't cost much to add a few more USB ports to your computer. All you need is a hub like Anker's 4-Port USB 3.0 Ultra-Slim Data Hub (opens in new tab), which you can snag at Amazon right now for only $4.99 when you enter code ANKERAHUB during checkout. That'll take $3 off its current price and save you more than 50% off its average cost there; earlier this year, it was priced as high as $16, and while that's not too pricey, it doesn't hold a candle to today's offer.
