Dyson Multi-Floor Vacuum
Save 68%: The headline says it all. The Dyson Multi-Floor vac, equipped with the cyclone suction technology you’ve no doubt heard about in TV commercials for nearly a decade, is $340 cheaper than normal. Put another way, you’ve saving exactly one 5.5-quart Le Creuset by buying. The Multi-Floor vac differentiates itself in Dyson’s catalog through the vacuum head’s floor height-sensing tech, that raises or lowers the head based on floor type.

It should be noted that these Dysons are refurbs, but importantly they are manufacturer refurbs, meaning Dyson has received them, patched them up, rigorously tested them and released them anew. — Will Price


Da Luca Shell Cordovan One-Piece Strap
Save $90: If you’ve invested in a high-end, long-lasting timepiece, it makes sense to pair it with a quality strap. Horween Shell Cordovan is as good a choice as any. It’s durable, has a rich look and feel, and will develop a spectacular patina over time. Understandably, they rarely come cheap, but Massdrop has Shell Cordovan pass-through straps from Da Luca starting at just $65. You can pick one up in black, brown or green leather, choose matte steel or PVD black hardware, and can get it in any width from 18mm to 26mm, so you can find an option that will accommodate virtually any timepiece. — Andrew Connor


Oakley EVZero Stride Prizm Sunglasses
Save $70: Oakley’s EVZero Stride Prizm sunglasses are for the rider who wants performance sunglasses, without looking too intense. The curved rimless edges mean an unlimited field of vision, ideal for all rides. The stress-resistant frames are lightweight so you can wear them all day — even off the bike. And, the glasses come with Oakley’s high definition optics to improve clarity. You can never see too well while riding. — Meg Lappe


JackRabbit Flash Sale
Save 30%+: For the next 24 hours there’s a flash sale on top-performing running gear from brands like Nike, Asics, Adidas, Saucony and more.

Victorinox Fibrox 8-inch Chef’s Knife
Save $25: Are beautiful, hand-forged knives made high-end materials amazing? Hell yes. Are they necessary? Hell no, and many professional chefs would tell you there are plenty of humbler knives that function just as well as grails that cost hundreds of dollars. For example, many will specifically recommend Victorinox’s Fibrox knives, and they can be found in many professional kitchens. They’re wonderfully durable, have grippy handles, and are even machine washable. The best part is that they’re cheap. The Fibrox 8-inch Chef’s Knife, for example, is on sale for just $30 right now. You’d be hard-pressed to find a better kitchen blade for the money. — Andrew Connor


Ray-Ban Sunglasses
Save 50%: If you don’t have good sunglasses, it’s worth investing in a pair before the sunnier months. If you’re looking for a good deal on a respected brand, head over to Nordstrom Rack and check out the selection of Ray-Bans. Most pairs are 50 percent off and prices start as low as $58 — hard to beat that. — John Zientek


Zwilling Pro 8-Inch Smart Ridged Chef’s Knife
Save 60%: Those looking for a blade upgrade in their kitchen might want to pay attention to this sweet deal from Massdrop: for the next seven days, you can pick up a Zwilling Pro Chef’s Knife for just $80. That’s a solid 60 percent savings from its $200 MSRP. The knife is made in Germany from high-carbon steel and features a ridge etched into the right-hand side to prevent food from sticking to the blade while chopping. — Andrew Connor


Patagonia Sale
Save 50%: You can spot Patagonia’s lightweight insulating jackets on everyone from urbanites to backpackers, no matter where you’re traveling. Our writers are big fans of many of the brand’s products, and for a good reason — each functions precisely as it should.

And if it’s already spring, it’s never too early to start thinking about the next ski season. — Meg Lappe


East Dane Spring Sale
Save at least 20%: Now is the perfect time to invest in quality wardrobe basics because East Dane is having a site-wide sale. For both full-price and sale items, you can save 20 percent on orders under $500 and 25 percent on orders over $500. While anything on the site is game, if you shop basics in the current sale section, you can get the most savings on brands like Velva Sheen, Saturdays NYC and A.P.C. To take advantage of deals, use the code EVENT18 at checkout, but don’t wait — the sale ends Sunday. — John Zientek


Big Agnes Sale
Save Up to 50%: I don’t want to jinx it, but it looks like the weather is finally turning for the better. That means weekend adventures up to mountains or out to the lake are a lot more enticing, now that the air isn’t so cold. Another excuse to start planning weekend trips into the wilderness is the big Big Agnes sale at Backcountry. Get a four-person tent up to 50% off, save $25 on a sleeping pad or take advantage of all the other discounted camping gear you’ll need for the fresh new season. — Bryan Campbell

Save up to 30%: Hario makes some of the best pour-over coffee gear around, and the brand’s V60 dripper is loved by coffee connoisseurs and considered an essential piece of kit. Right now, ceramic versions of the V60 (which help retain heat) are marked down on Amazon, making it a tempting buy for those interested in the nerdy realm of pour-over but have yet to take the plunge. — Andrew Connor


J.Crew Sale
Save 70%: J.Crew knows how to make wardrobe staples to stock your closet — they’ve created the perfect recipe for everything from button-up shirts to khakis to jeans. And when these things are on sale, it’s always a good idea to stock up. Now you can take an extra 30 percent off sale styles with code TAKE2030. Check out sweaters, shorts, bathing suits, shirt and jeans to find the best deals. Trust us; there are lots of options to peruse.

Brooks Brothers Shirts
Save 46%: It’s easy to get into a rut with your professional wardrobe. You have shirts and slacks that work, and you simply rotate through them. If you’re feeling like your office garb has gotten a little static, consider investing in a couple new shirts from Brooks Brothers. They’ve got a classic fit and design that will pair well with your existing wardrobe, and they come in a range of colors and patterns. Now at Nordstrom Rack, they’re 46 percent off and cost just $50 per shirt. — John Zientek


Aero 48-Inch Media Center
Save $575: The art of putting together the small apartment is finding slightly smaller versions of full-size furniture you love. Point being, you can’t really go for a full wall, four-feet deep media center with a paltry 600 square-feet to work with. However, this Aero 48-inch media center fits that bill perfectly and, for now, won’t break the bank. Designed by Gabriel Tan to blend Shaker-style furniture with modern lines and color, the Aero is made of hand-painted American Ashwood and a protective lacquered finish. The media console, which typically retails at $1150, is 50 percent off on Design Within Reach now. — Will Price


Sony WH-1000XM2
Save $143: Frankly, the Sony WH-1000XM2 and the Bose QC35 II ($350) are the two best wireless active noise-canceling headphones you can buy in 2018. And the Sony WH-1000XM2 are going for $205 on eBay right now — which is almost $150 less than its normal $348 MSRP. This is one of the lowest prices we’ve seen the Sony WH-1000XM2 going for. It’s also important to point out that these headphones are “manufacturer-refurbished.” If you’re worried about them not meeting your expectations, remember that each pair comes with a warranty and a 30-day return policy.


Glycine Combat Sub
Save 75%: The Glycine Combat Sub is an excellent example of a usable tool that has some vintage panache. It’s powered by a movement based on the venerable ETA 2824 automatic and features a unidirectional timing bezel and a 42mm case good for a 200-meter depth rating. The Combat Sub’s MSRP is around $1,500, but usually, you can find them at online retailers closer to $600. Still, Massdrop is offering even bigger savings with a campaign that’s marked down the watch’s price to just $380. — Andrew Connor


Patagonia Sale
Save 30%: Patagonia’s arsenal of clothing runs the gamut of everything you could need, year round. Right now, Backcountry is having a massive Patagonia sale where everything from shirts, pullovers, pants, down jackets and so much more are all at least 30% off. It’s a gigantic catalog of clothing, so we picked out a few of the pieces that caught our eye to get you started. — Bryan Campbell


Onia Calder Swim Trunks
Save 58%: If you’ve been daydreaming about warmer months, the latest Onia sale at Nordstrom Rack gives you something to act on. You can get a pair of the brand’s Calder swim trunks for 58 percent off. The mid-rise short is a versatile enough to be worn both in and out of the water. It features a zip fly, a mesh brief lining, two front slash pocket and a back patch pocket. Though the weather may not be beach-appropriate yet, that doesn’t mean you can’t be prepared. — John Zientek


Mystery Ranch Backpacks and Bags
Save 45%: Mystery Ranch is known for creating some of the toughest backpacks on earth, so it’s no surprise the brand has worked with the Navy SEALS, backcountry firefighters and the US Forest Service. Now you can save up to 45% off some of the backpacks, wheelies and duffels, making this lifetime purchase every sweeter. — Meg Lappe


Persol Pilot Sunglasses
Save 71%: It’s hard to fault the classic styling of Persol’s PO7359S sunglasses. Made in Italy, the pilot style features metal frames, tasteful hinge accents and light brown flash lenses. If you’re looking to invest in some new eyewear before the sunnier months, now’s the time. This pair is 71 percent off at Nordstrom Rack and costs just $100. — John Zientek


Nike Tanks and Shorts
Save 70%: Nike knows how to make running gear — every tank, short and legging it produces is breathable, has the right amount of stretch and never chafes. Find remarkable shorts and tanks for up to 70 percent off now. Whether you’re a 5-, 7- or 9-inch inseam, there’s a variety of colors and styles on sale now. — Meg Lappe


Vitamix Vita-Prep 2.3 HP Blender
Save $500: There comes a time in every person’s life when a blender with actual horsepower is on the shopping list. If you’re that person, and that time is now, you’re in luck.

Vitamix’s all-powerful Vita-Prep blender is slashed big time right now — from north of $800 to $358. The Vita-Prep is the original all-in-one appliance, and it does it without wi-fi connectivity and LED screens and programmability overload. Its aerospace-grade, laser cut steel blades are powered by a 2.3 HP motor which, together with a simple speed-changing knob, make a blender that can dice whole vegetables, make ice cream, cook soup, whip cream, liquify nuts and make the smoothest of smoothies. It generates so much suction it actually sucks air bubbles back into the blades and limits over-frothy end products.

Don’t look at Vitamix’s Vita-Prep as a blender — look at it as the original Instant Pot. Save $500 on the professional grade model today — Will Price


Adventure Duffels
Save $88: Travel duffels need to be dependable, durable and simple. Waterproof materials and zippers and padded backpack straps are the highest forms of technological advances we see in this field, and that’s okay with us. Five of the ten award-winning adventure duffels are on sale today. Now’s a great time to buy one for life, and simultaneously book your next epic trip — after all, these duffels can handle anything you throw at them. — Meg Lappe


Riedel Vinum Extreme Cabernet Glasses
Save $20: In 1986 Master Austrian glassmakers Riedel changed the glassware game by introducing the first line of machine-made pieces tailored to different wine types — this was the Vinum collection, which has held as the standard for affordable, varietal-specific glasses since. The Vinum collection, which features a glass for cabernets to rosés, is made with dishwasher-safe crystal glass and also comes in an “extreme” model, providing an upgraded glass size. Right now, a set of two Riedel Vinum Cabernet Sauvignon (Merlot and Bordeaux, too) Extreme series glasses is $39, $20 off its usual price. — Will Price


This Dog Tag Should Be Standard Issue for the Military
Save Over $85: Spyderco’s Dog Tag Folding Knife is the result of a collaboration with Ukranian knifemaker Serge Panchenko, and is nearly the same dimensions as the current mil-spec dog tag. Its 1.22-inch sheepsfoot blade is made from high-quality CPM S30V stainless steel, while its handle is a combination titanium and aluminum. The knife is a slip joint design, which means that it doesn’t lock open. If you live somewhere like New York City with stringent knife laws, that’s good news. Spyderco doesn’t provide ball chain with the Dog Tag folder, so you’ll need to pick one up separately.

The knife is currently available on Massdrop for $45, down from its retail price of $130, and ships April 24. But if you don’t want to wait that long, you can also pick one up from Amazon (Prime eligable) for $56. — AJ Powell


Bonita BV1901TS
Save $50: Bonavita’s drip coffee makers are praised both for their ability to make a cup of Joe on par with manual pour-over methods (sans fuss) and their relatively affordable price (they’re a hell of a lot cheaper than a comparable Technivorm, that’s for sure). The BV1901TS, for example, has a pre-infusion mode for freshly-ground coffee and consistently heats water to the ideal brewing range. Thanks to a campaign on Massdrop, its been discounted to just $110, though only 100 coffee makers are available. — Andrew Connor
