Eero Home WiFi System
Save $50: This summer Eero announced the second-generation of its wi-fi hubs, called Eeros ($199/ea), and the all-new Eero Beacon ($149), which is effectively a wi-fi extender that plugs directly into the wall. The big thing was that the new Eero system was twice as fast and had more range than the original Eero hubs.

If your home or office is struggling with poor internet, there are a number of great Eero bundles you can jump on. Normally, one Eero and two Beacons cost $399, but Eero is offering the bundle for $349. You can get one Eero and one Beacon for $250, which normally costs $300. You can get this deal from Amazon or Eero’s website. — Tucker Bowe


Brooks Brothers Suits and More
Save Over 25%: Brooks Brothers — looking to clear out its end-of-year inventory — is taking an extra 25% off its clearance section (the deal applies at checkout). This happens to include scores of suits in different materials, cuts and colors, so if you’ve been looking to upgrade your formal attire, this is a great opportunity to do so. But while the litany of suiting options is undoubtedly the highlight here, there are plenty of other great deals from this sale, too, including outerwear, dress shirts, leather goods and Brooks Brothers’ contemporary Red Fleece collection. — Andrew Connor


Outerknown Highland Blanket Shirt
Save 20%: The shirt jacket represents truly versatile apparel: it’s at home wherever the weather is cool or unpredictable, whether that be along wild coasts or among rugged mountains. Outerknown’s take is also sustainably made (not to mention warm and comfortable) with organic cotton, wool and nylon. It’s also 20% off until the end of the year when you enter GPOK20 at checkout. — Gear Patrol


Cuisinart’s DBM-8AMZ Supreme Grind Coffee Grinder
Save 58%: Making great coffee requires a good brewer and quality beans. But also contingent is having them freshly ground. While many burr grinders cost hundreds (and rightfully so), there are still decent grinders in the sub-$100 range. Cuisinart’s DBM-8AMZ Supreme Grind is a great example, featuring 18 coarseness settings and automatic grinding (there’s no deadman’s switch like on other burr grinders). It can grind enough beans for up to 18 cups of coffee at a time and its grind chamber holds 32 cups so it’s ideal for making gratuitous batches of coffee in one go. While there are undoubtedly higher-end options out there, if you’re merely looking to upgrade your coffee game on a budget you could certainly do worse than the DBM-8AMZ, given Amazon is currently taking off a solid 58% on the already affordable grinder. — Andrew Connor


Fjällräven Jackets
Save 40%: Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you have to look like a non-descript blob on your way to work every morning. Thankfully, Swedish style maven and outdoor powerhouse Fjällräven makes a plethora of jackets that will stand up the elements and look great while doing it. Over at Moosejaw, classics like the Greenland Jacket, Pak Down Jacket, Raven Jacket and Abisko Windbreaker are all on sale for up to 44% off. — AJ Powell


MSR Freelite 3
Save $180: Winter, more often than not, is the best time to stock up on summer camping gear. It can be tough to think about camping out on a sun-drenched beach while you’re stuck braving freezing temperatures and battling seasonal affective disorder as best you can — but that’s why we’re here. If you’re in need of a new tent, now’s the time to buy. One of our favorites, the MSR Freelite 3, is currently on sale for 36% off — down to the lowest price we’ve seen it at all year. The Freelite 3 is the perfect size for you and a friend with ample space to store your gear. — AJ Powell


Click and Grow Smart Farm
Save 34%: When the apocalypse hits, you’ll need to grow your own food. But even if feelings of paranoia don’t govern your everyday habits, Click and Grow’s Smart Farm is a sustainable way to raise an entire crop of food, indoors. The fully-automated farm can accommodate up to 288 plants in three platform levels. That may seem like a lot to handle, but the entire spread requires just two hours of work per week by a single person. Compared to the traditional outdoor farm, the Smart Farm saves on water and reduces waste — all without toxic pesticides or herbicides.

The Smart Farm is Click and Grow’s biggest product (it’s roughly 5′ 7″ by 16′ 5″), which works for larger homes or larger shared spaces like offices or schools. But if you don’t need an entire farm, Click and Grow does offer a range of smaller, home and apartment-friendly models. The Smart Garden, for instance, can hold three to nine plants and is ideal for countertops. These smaller models also come with great savings when you subscribe to a year’s worth of Click and Grow’s seeds, which include everything from romaine lettuce to purple chili peppers. — Tanner Bowden


Five Great Ski Goggles on Sale Now at Backcountry
Save up to 45%: Don’t get caught in a blizzard without a decent pair. — Tanner Bowden
