BeatsX In-Ear Headphones
Save $75: If you love your AirPods, but don’t want to ruin them by working out with them — AirPods aren’t sweatproof, after all — the BeatsX in-ear headphones are a solid alternative. Even though they aren’t truly wireless, they boast the same W1 chip and will instantly pair with your iPhone. Plus, you’re getting the quality audio (with heavy bass) that Beats is known for.

The BeatsX normally go for $150 — you can find them on Apple’s website in a range of colors for this price. If you’re looking for more of a deal, Best Buy is offering them for $130 (here), and Amazon has even lower deals (here), but require you to sign up for an Amazon credit card. The best deal on new BeatsX in-ear headphones can be found on eBay — get a pair (black only) for only $75 (here). — Tucker Bowe


Todd Snyder Wool Topcoat
Save 56%: Todd Snyder is now offering 56% off its double-breasted topcoat in a maroon colorway. Made from Italian double-face wool, the coat is unlined and has soft shoulders for a relaxed fit that looks good on a range of body types. The silhouette is timeless, hitting just below the knee, and the coat features horn buttons. Available now in sizes small, large and extra-large, it’s a smart buy for those looking for a classic and refined winter coat. — John Zientek


Red Wing Postman Oxford
Save 50%: Now at Nordstrom Rack, you can get the Red Wing Heritage Postman Oxford for half off. Available in charcoal leather from the S.B. Foot Tanning Company, the shoe features a Goodyear welt, a leather insole and an Atlas Tred sole. It’s a classic silhouette that you can dress up or dress down, an ideal shoe for everyday wear. — John Zientek


YETI 26oz Rambler Water Bottle
Save 25%: What makes a good water bottle? The ability to hold a substantial amount of water. A durable construction that can take a couple — no, numerable, drops. Insulation that’ll keep your drink cold, or hot, for as long as it takes you to finish it. A clip-friendly handle that won’t break on you (ahem, Nalgene).

YETI’s 26-ounce Rambler ticks all the boxes. It’s also sleek and features a wide mouth opening for less-awkward hydrating. And like the brand’s coolers, the Rambler is built with zero compromises on quality. But unlike those pricey coolers, it’s exceptionally affordable, especially with this 25% off deal on Amazon. One standout to note is that the deal applies to every color, so take your pick. — Tanner Bowden


Amazon Echo
Save 20%: Amazon is doing everything to get Alexa in your home. Its favorite tactic has been discounting Echo devices so much that it’s actually difficult to not purchase one. Over Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it cut the price of all second-gen Amazon Echos by $20, dropping them down to $79; but if you thought that price was only available for a limited time, you underestimated how badly the e-commerce giant wants you and Alexa to become BFFs. The deal is still on and if you haven’t bought a second-gen Echo, this deal is still almost too good to pass up.

If you’re curious about the differences between the new Amazon Echo and the first-generation model, read our review. — Tucker Bowe


Mountain Hardwear Apparel
Save up to 60%: The harsh reality of winter is best dealt with in layers. Down layers, wind layers and waterproof layers, that is. Mountain Hardwear has been making weather-ready outerwear for almost 25 years, and all that experience has added up to a collection of jackets that are no slouch when it comes to winter. Right now, you can save up to 60% on already-marked-down styles when you enter the promo code MHWDEC60 at checkout.

Typically a sale like this would be limited to hard-to-sell leftover items and sizes that start with XX, but there are still plenty of options and various colors available, whether you’re looking for a classic down jacket, an urban winter coat, a ski jacket, or even a waterproof backpack. Remember, use the code MHWDEC60 to get even more off the discounted price. — Tanner Bowden


Orient Bambino V3 Automatic
Save $130: We love the Orient Bambino for its vintage-inspired dial, domed crystal and, not least of all, its automatic movement. With a retail price around $300, it’s always been a great value for the money (it’s one of our favorite watches under $500), but now Huckberry is knocking $130 off its price, making it an even more affordable dress watch option. Give it as a gift to a stylish person in your life, or simply keep it for yourself. — Andrew Connor
