Uncommon Carry Miniature Crossbows
Grab q-tips, matches or toothpicks and practice your point and shoot skills with one of the amazing many miniaturized and fully functional crossbows Uncommon Carry offers. The Bowman lets you launch ammo (of the non-lethal kind) anywhere you please with a range of 30 to 50 feet, while the BB Sniper can shoot a target up to 15 meters away. They’re all handmade from durable stainless steel and sold in gold, silver or black, so matching your office or home accents is a breeze. Just be sure to turn off the AC or heat before you start firing —- wouldn’t want to mess up your arch. Then place it back on its included stand for everyone to admire once you’re done practicing for the day.

Anker Zolo Liberty and Liberty Plus Wireless Earbuds
Save up to $31: The entry-level Zolo Liberty earbuds normally go for $100, but you can buy them for $79 on Amazon if you use the promo code LOVEZOLO. The higher-end Zolo Liberty Plus earbuds normally go for $150, but you can buy them for $119 on Amazon if you use the code ZOLOLOVE. And for reference, the difference between the two models is the “Plus” earbuds are more sophisticated and more expensive; they have longer battery life and, working with a companion app, allow you to adjust the amount of ambient sound you hear. — Tucker Bowe
TCL P-Series 4K Smart TV
Save up to $270: TCL may have once been considered a cheap TV manufacturer, but it’s almost completely curbed that notion in recent years — now, frankly, it’s known for its high-quality and affordable TVs. Last year, its P-Series was some of the best bang-for-your-buck 4K smart televisions you could buy. They also supported HDR and Dolby Vision formats, which is a rarity for TVs in this price range. The 55-inch model normally goes for around $800, but you can save a couple hundred dollars and pick up a refurbished model for $530 on eBay. If you’re looking for a brand new TV, Best Buy is also selling this model on sale for $600. — Tucker Bowe
DeWalt Combo Bundle
Save $70: A 50-degree variable bevel saw packing 20V of power. A drill rocking a triple-LEDs and a locking belt hook. A 22-position clutch hammer drill. DeWalt’s all-cordless carpentry kit should be plenty to get your next — or first — weekend DIY project off the ground. And at 25% off, this staple setup is at the right price to jumpstart your next hobby. — Will Price
