Welcome to the new Deals of Note, which includes a new 4:00 p.m. publishing time to capture all the best deals of the day. You can also follow all our deal posts in the Deals section. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at email@example.com.
RAVPower Fast Wireless Charger
Save 35%: The RAVPower Fast Wireless Charge is one of our favorite wireless charging pads. It comes with a powerful 24-watt, QC 3.0 wall adapter and can output 10 watts of power — you’ll be able to fast charge your new iPhone or Galaxy S8 to its full potential. Compared to other likeminded wireless Qi chargers, the RAVPower Fast Wireless Charge, at $50, is already a good deal, but today you can get an even better deal: Amazon is offering it for $33. That’s $17 off, meaning it’s not only one of the best wireless chargers, it’s also one of the cheapest.
Note: Some wireless chargers, like the Anker Powerport 10W ($26), are less expensive, but don’t come with a wall adapter. A 10-watt wall adapter, which is needed to charge the latest smartphones to their fullest potential, usually runs between $10 and $15. — Tucker Bowe
Leesa King Size Mattress
Save $246: Here’s an understatement: there are a lot of comes-in-a-box foam mattresses. Ever since Casper upended the mattress industry a la Warby Parker, internet bed companies have been sprouting up almost on a monthly basis. Included in the crowd is Leesa, whose foam mattress adapts to different body shapes and sleep styles (and it comes with that handy 100 day trial period). It’s the top-rated foam mattress by the reviewers at the Wirecutter, and it also gets this writer’s seal of approval — I’ve been sleeping on a Leesa for the past month.
Right now, on Amazon, those looking to upgrade their sleep experience can pick up a king size Leesa mattress for over $200 off, which makes it cheaper than buying the queen size. — Tanner Bowden

Rugged Gear and Apparel from Filson
Save up to 60%: Now at Filson, you can save up to 60% on bags, clothing and accessories. It’s the perfect chance to stock up on rugged wears for all your outdoor pursuits because the prices won’t get much better than this. So if you’re looking to build out your current set-up, don’t pass this up. — John Zientek
Custom Shirts and Blazers From Hugh & Crye
Save 20%: One of the toughest (or near impossible) tasks one can embark on is buying a shirt or a blazer for someone else and have it fit them properly, no tailoring needed. But, for you last minutes shoppers, Hugh & Crye makes that mission a little bit easier and could make you look like a hero in the process. Instead of trying to eye up your friend’s or family member’s exact size and hope every aspect of the shirt or jacket — sleeve length, waist fit, chest fit — sit right too, Hughe & Crye does sizing by height and build. It may seem like a broad stroke approach to sizing but ends up with a better overall fit and finish. And, today you can save 20% on select sale items, including those usually hard to size shirts and blazers. — Bryan Campbell
Fujifilm X-T20 Mirrorless Camera
Save $100: Fuji’s X-T2 is arguably the best mirrorless camera you can buy. If you don’t have the $1,500+ (body only) to buy it, the X-T20 is a worthy fallback plan.
Released in February 2017, the X-T20 is basically a smaller and more affordable version of the X-T2 — they have almost identical shooting abilities. Aside from size and price, the main difference is that the X-T20 doesn’t have a touchscreen. Still, it’s arguably a better value than the X-T2. And if you order on Amazon, you can get $100 off the Fujifilm X-T20 with an XC16-50mm lens kit. — Tucker Bowe
Mountain Hardwear Sleeping Bags
Save 25%: Save on bags that range from 32 degrees down to -40. — Tanner Bowden
Vitamix 5200 Blender
Save $100: The black version of Vitamix’s flagship blender, the 5200, is on sale on Amazon for $300. While the site lists savings of $250 (with a normal MSRP of $550), you should note that the same blender retails on the Vitamix website for $400, meaning the sale is really just $100 off. That said, it’s a great deal on what may be the last blender you’ll ever buy. — Jack Seemer
Lodge Cast Iron Grill Pan
Save 61%: Lodge is currently the only manufacturer making cast iron cookware on a large scale in the United States, and right now you can get one of the brand’s bullet-proof cast iron grill pans for just $13 — down from $33. The pan measures 10.5 inches in diameter and 2.4 inches deep. This deal tends to come and go quickly, so act fast. — AJ Powell
Santa Fe Stoneworks Pocket Knives
Save up to 15%: Just in time or the holidays, Huckberry is shaving up to 15 percent off Santa Fe Stoneworks knives, which aren’t your run-of-the-mill pocket knives. The folding three-inch Damascus steel blades not only look beautiful but are known worldwide for the ability to hold a sharp edge over years of use. Handle materials range from gorgeous designs of Ironwood and obsidian to wooly mammoth and dinosaur bone; some are finished off with inlays of turquoise or amber. As far as stocking stuffers are concerned, this sets a pretty high bar. — Bryan Campbell
