Almost the entire Dell Refurbished store is on sale today. All items are 50 percent off except for clearance items, 7020 models, and previous sales. That still leaves dozens of devices to purchase from Dell's Precision, Latitude, and Optiplex lines.

The deal comes toward the end of Amazon Prime Day, which is likely not a coincidence, and gives people an option other than Amazon to grab some deals today. The deals become active at 9 AM CST on July 16 and end at 9 PM CST July 16.

There are many deals that are worth checking out, but a couple that stand out are the Dell Latitude 14 5000 and the Dell Optiplex 7020. Both of these are very affordable ways to get a reliable and consistent machine. You can also get a Dell Professional Series 19" monitor for only $49.

To receive the discounts, entering "12HOURFLASH" as a discount code is required. Items sold through this site are refurbished, but they are sold through Dell so you can feel more comfortable with their quality than other refurbished vendors.

Portable (and affordable) power accessories we love

Each and every one of these charging gadgets will keep your favorite gear and gadgets going for longer, and none of them costs more than $30.

VisionTek 8,000 mAh micro-USB power bank ($13 at Dell)

This compact dual-output powerbank can speedily recharge any and all your devices, thanks to a two-amp "fast charge feature," using its micro-USB out port. Its simple design includes an LED indicator, and it costs about as much as a single ticket to the movies.

Panasonic eneloop AA batteries (From $13 at Dell)

Panasonic's rechargeable batteries are among the best available, and just a couple of them will keep your favorite remote, mice or other peripherals powered up when you need them. They're also eco. And the company's affordable charger fits and charges both AA and AAA batteries at the same time.

Belkin Qi Wireless Charging Pad ($30 at Dell)

This unobtrusive Qi wireless charging pad looks good (and kind of like a UFO …) and easily charges all your Qi-compatible device up to 5W. Its LED indicator lights up when you're charging. And it costs just $30.
