Monday, June 3


Seiko SNN241
Save 54%: This chrono features a larger 42.6mm steel case with a Japanese quartz movement powering two sub-dials — a 60-minute counter at 12 o’clock, and a running seconds sub-dial at 6 o’clock, as well as a date window. The SNN241 has a brown dial with Hardlex crystal and a matching contrast-stiched brown leather band with double-locking clasp. It’s also water-resistant to 100m, so while it’s splash-proof, it’s best to switch to a trusty dive watch for serious water sports. — Oren Hartov


Bodum French Press
Save 45%: Though coffee brewing styles come and go, the French press hasn’t budged. The simplest way to brew well without having to practice a routine and recipe, it’s the coffee beginner’s best friend (it also impresses guests). Today on Amazon, Bodum’s iconic, easy-to-use French press is marked way down. Though the 12-ounce press — good for about three cups of coffee — is just $16, we recommend buying bigger. The 34-ounce, 8-cup press is $30 and makes brewing coffee for a crowd that much easier. — Will Price


Persol Aviators
Save 71%:If you’ve been waiting to invest in an iconic pair of Persol sunglasses, Nordstrom Rack has a deal for you. Right now, you can save 71 percent on three different Italian-made Persols: the Aviator, the Sartoria and the Pilot models. Normally $350, these shades are now just $100 while supplies last. — John Zientek


Patagonia Black Hole Backpack
Save 30%: Of the well-loved products that Patagonia has created over the years — from ultralight synthetic insulation jackets to iconic fleeces — the Black Hole duffel is one that has weathered the years. The utilitarian gear hauler is made rugged enough to handle the rigors of weeks-long field expeditions yet practical enough that its features aren’t lost on casual travelers. (The 60-liter version is perfect for carry-on-only trips.)

Similar to the duffel, the Black Hole Pack uses a wide opening to access its main compartment, which has a sleeve for a laptop or a hydration reservoir as well as smaller pockets for essential items. Unhindered by other unnecessary features, the bag is left to do what it should: provide ample space for whatever it is you might need to carry.

Right now the Black Hole Pack is available for 30-percent off at both Nordstrom and Patagonia. — Tanner Bowden


Reebok Apparel and Sneaker Sale
Save 30%:Right now, you can save up to 30 percent off a variety of Reebok gear on eBay — including the Reebok Fast Tempo Flexweave Shoes. The sneakers are down from $100 to $75 in a couple of colors and a handful of sizes. If you’re looking for a new pair of shoes for the gym and to hop on the treadmill, this is the shoe for you. — Meg Lappe


2018 LG C8 OLED TV (65-inch)
Save 50%: LG’s 2018 C8 series of 4K OLED TVs are expensive. When they were released last past spring, a 65-inch model was going for $3,500. Almost a year later, however, that price has dropped over to around $2,597 — that’s over $1,000 off. But today eBay is running a deal on a brand-new C8 for $1,699 – that’s half off. Yes, it’s still expensive, but it’s not that bad considering that we’re talking about LG’s top-of-the-line 4K OLED TV. And LG makes the best 4K OLED TVs.

Sony WH1000XM3 Noise-Canceling Headphones
Save $52: Sony released the WH1000XM3 this past fall and they’re better than the Sony WH1000XM2 in every way. They sound better. They’re better at noise-cancellation. They have modern perks, like USB-C charging. And they still cost $350. Again, these are the best noise-canceling headphones you can buy. Period. And now you can get them for a discount. Amazon is selling new models for $52 off. Both black and silver models are available at this discount.


Bell Race Star RSD Formula Helmet
Save up to 50%: The Bell Race Star helmet is explicitly tailored to compliment sport bike levels of performance, whether that’s on the street or circling a track. The 3K carbon fiber shell and Panovision viewport offer some of the best impact protection and field of vision on the market and are the same sort of features you’ll see top-flight racers putting to the test and enjoying on the global stage of motorsports. That kind of technology and design usually comes with a hefty price tag, but today you can get the Bell Race Star RSD Formula Helmet 50 percent off at $375. — Bryan Campbell


Tuesday, June 4


Lululemon Sale
Save 75%:While I’d argue you can never have too much of a great thing, it seems like Lululemon might disagree. The brand made too many sweat-wicking workout pieces, and now it’s all on sale. Everything from backpacks to tees, joggers to sneakers are all offered at discounted prices — most of which is on final sale. With the scorching hot temperatures arriving for summer, Lululemon has the freshest gear to keep you dry and stench-free, and looking good. Some of our top-rated running shirts and gym shorts are included in the massive sale, so get them while you can. Did we mention Father’s Day is right around the corner? We picked out a few favorites to help you get started. — Meg Lappe


Orient Mako XL Dive Watch
Save 60%: With the Orient Mako XL Automatic dive, you get an in-house, 21-jewel automatic movement with 40 hours of power reserve, a stainless steel 44.5mm case, a mineral crystal, steel bracelet, day-date display, unidirectional rotating bezel, 200m of water resistance, and the choice of 4 dial colors: black with black bezel, black with green bezel, vaguely-yellowish-greenish-mintish with black bezel and black with orange bezel. And all this for $130 right now on Drop. — Oren Hartov


Red Wing Heritage Moc Toe Boots
Save up to 46%:When you’re presented with the chance to save on Red Wing Heritage boots, you’d be foolish to pass it up. The brand’s boots are rarely on sale and when they are, sizes are often limited. But now at Nordstrom Rack, you can save up to 46 percent on a pair of classic Red Wing Heritage Moc-Toe boots available in sizes 7 to 11. This American-made style features Sand or Navy Portage leather from the S.B. Foot Tanning Company in Minnesota and a non-marking outsole. What are you waiting for? — John Zientek


Garmin InReach Mini
Save $50: In an always-connected world, it can sometimes seem inconceivable that there are still places that lack cell phone service. But they exist, and not only in the most remote locations imaginable, like the Atacama Desert or Himalaya, either. Drive just two hours away from New York City, and you’ll find yourself in the Catskill Mountains, which is where we tested seven off-grid satellite communication devices and found that Garmin’s InReach Mini, which is currently $50 off at Amazon, is the best you can buy.

The InReach Mini is, as its name implies, small (it weighs 3.5 ounces). But it packs a ton of utility: you can send and receive messages directly from the device or a paired phone, you can access offline maps and you can set it to automatically update friends and family with your location at set intervals of time. With the discount, it costs just $300, which is a small price to pay for the ability to stay in contact no matter where you go and the peace of mind that in the worst situations, help is a button push away. — Tanner Bowden


Crate&Barrel Outdoor Furniture
Save Up to 40%: If you’re looking to outfit your patio with sturdy, solid-looking outdoor furniture quickly, you’re in luck — Crate&Barrel just cut prices on all its outdoor collections by up to 40 percent.

The collections, which are just different style and color combinations, range from airy and beachy to clean, modern lines. Or, if you’re a traditionalist, the company has Adirondack-style chairs and side tables in just about every color you could want. Shop the whole sale here. — Will Price

Designer Sunglasses from Mr Porter
Save up to 50%: Mr Porter consistently deals out some of the best stuff money can buy, from handmade footwear to fine Italian knits to ultra-limited pieces from the world’s top designers. Today you can get some of the best sunglasses on the market for 50 percent less than their usual cost, putting them in the same price range as the old beater shades you’ve had knocking around in your glovebox. If you want to upgrade to a pair of shades from Tom Ford, Ermenegildo Zegna, Kingsman or Native Sons, your number’s being called. Shop all Mr Porter’s sale eyewear to find your perfect pair. — Andy Frakes


Yeti Hopper Two 30 Soft-Sided Cooler
Save $60: Like getting a bonefish on the line or achieving the perfect smoke ring on a brisket, finding a deal on a Yeti cooler is tricky. More than anything else, it takes dedication and patience — when the moment of action arises, it requires swift decision-making (and a willingness to accept cut-rate analogies) if it’s not to be missed. That moment is now; Yeti recently dropped the price on one of its original soft-sided coolers, the Hopper Two 30, from $300 to $240.

Yeti made the Hopper Two 30 with its DryHide Shell, which is waterproof from the outside, leak-proof from the inside and resolutely puncture-resistant. It has a super-strong waterproof zipper and a shoulder strap that makes carrying it easy when it’s filled to the brim. It’s one of the best soft coolers at keeping ice frozen and drinks and food cold. If $240 still seems like a hefty price tag, remember that this thing is made to last a lifetime. — Tanner Bowden

Victorinox INOX
Save 52%: The shockingly tough INOX is one of Victorinox Swiss Army’s most popular models and built to withstand a range of (130, to be exact) stress tests. A Swiss quartz movement means it will be super accurate as well as robust with scratch-proof sapphire crystal, robust steel construction, and a water-resistance of 200m. Right now, you can get it on a bracelet with a cool olive green dial for over half off retail price at Nordstrom Rack. — Zen Love


Oakley Sunglasses Sale
Save 60%:If you don’t yet have the perfect pair of summer shades, today is a great day to change that. Head to eBay to shop a plethora of Oakley and Ray-Ban sunglasses, all under $60.

You’ll have to shop around to find some of the styles that will work double duty for your run and your commute, but there are over 100 available. We pulled together a few of our favorites below — all of which are over 60 percent off as well. — Meg Lappe


Thursday, June 6


Breville Barista Express Espresso Machine
Save $130: Making a decent espresso at home requires a lot. You need a scale to weigh out a proper shot, you need a burr grinder to ensure you’re using fresh grounds and you need an espresso maker to pull everything together. The alternative is to get an espresso maker with all that built-in, and then some. Something like Breville’s Barista Express.

Among Breville’s line of espresso makers, the Barista Express stands out — it’s got all the additive performance features of its higher-priced siblings, but it’s the only all-in-one maker that’s not $1,000 or more. It’s got a built-in grinder and dose control, plus it’s operable in automatic and manual modes. The machine also features a really, really impressive milk wand and comes with all the ancillary parts needed to make it all go (tamper, milk jug, razor trim and so on). — Will Price


Weber Grills
Save Up to 25%: On Wayfair, nearly everything is on sale all the time. Exceptions typically include products from name brands — your KitchenAids, Brevilles and Staubs. Today, however, during the site’s annual Outdoor Sale, grilling’s biggest name brand has virtually its whole catalog of gas and charcoal grills marked down.

The majority of Weber’s grills are discounted anywhere from 15 to 30 percent off. The lot includes the compact Spirit II propane-fired grill, the most upgraded form of the classic kettle grill and others. — Will Price


Converse Jack Purcell Sneakers
Save 25%:Canadian badminton ace Jack Purcell designed his eponymous canvas sneaker back in the 1930s. Over the past eight decades, the style has gone essentially unchanged. It features a lightweight canvas upper, a rubber outsole with a signature ‘smile’ across the toe and medial eyelets for breathability. In the classic black colorway, it’s an essential spring sneaker: breathable, lightweight, casual. Normally $65, the style is 25 percent off at East Dane and now costs just $49. A range of sizes are still available but act fast because they’re selling quickly. — John Zientek


Persol Aviators
Save 71%:If you’ve been waiting to invest in an iconic pair of Persol sunglasses, Nordstrom Rack has a deal for you. Right now, you can save 71 percent on three different Italian-made Persols: the Aviator, the Sartoria and the Pilot models. Normally $350, these shades are now just $100 while supplies last. — John Zientek


Spyderco Endela Pocket Knife
Save 35%: Spyderco makes some of the most identifiable pocket knives available. It’s all thanks to that circular cutout, which founder Sal Glesser designed as a simple one-handed opening alternative to thumb studs and other add-ons. In the decades since he created it, it’s become iconic in the knife world and is present in every Spyderco pocket knife.

Spyderco’s Endela, which is currently on sale for 35 percent off at Drop, exerts that same essence of simplicity in all of its features. It has a 3.4-inch VG-10 stainless steel drop-point blade and a synthetic handle that keeps its overall weight low (3.1 ounces). It also uses a basic and well-executed lockback to keep the blade secure when it’s open. You can get it with a plain or serrated edge right now and save $43 while you’re at it. — Tanner Bowden


Adidas Solar Boost Sale
Save $50:Today you can pick up a pair of Adidas Solar Boosts for $50 off, which is a steal. These running shoes are great for the roads and the gym, so whether your workout of choice is lifting weights, running on the beach or hitting the trails, these sneakers will do it all. The Solar Boosts have the same beloved foam as the Ultraboosts, just with a more durable upper that won’t stretch as much with time. Pick up a pair today for only $110.
— Meg Lappe

Almost a year later, however, that price has dropped over to around $2,597 — that’s over $1,000 off. But today eBay is running a deal on a brand-new C8 for $1,699 – that’s half off. Yes, it’s still expensive, but it’s not that bad considering that we’re talking about LG’s top-of-the-line 4K OLED TV. And LG makes the best 4K OLED TVs.

Bulova Computron Digital Watch
Save 40%: At this year’s Baselworld, Bulova released a re-edition of the Computron, a unique LED watch with an angled display that allowed for ease of reading while driving. One of the three variants is this steel-cased version with blue LED. Featuring a day-date display and well as dual time zones and water-resistant to 30m, this re-issue with its matching bracelet brings back an awesome, futuristic look from the 1970s, reimagined in a unique colorway. Use the code “FRIEND” to take a total of 40% off the MSRP of the Computron and grab one for just $210. — Oren Hartov

All-Clad Stainless Steel Cookware
Save 52%: What’s the difference between quality stainless steel cookware and cheap stainless steel cookware? Easy: the former has even heating, balanced weight and increased durability. The downside, of course, is cost.

Today at Macy’s, the most-respected stainless steel cookware in the world is selling discounted pots and pans — in bulk. All-Clad’s seven-piece collection of stainless is marked down from $630 to $300. The set includes a sauté pan, fry pan, stock pot and a saucepan. This is as cheap as it gets. — Will Price


Traeger Wood Pellet Grill
Save 25%: Traeger, the company that invented the wood pellet grill, has made better grills than its Texas Elite model. Earlier this year it unveiled a new series of grill-smokers that connect to Wi-Fi, pre-heat quickly and are fully controllable through smartphones. The past-generation Texas Elite doesn’t do these things, but it still does everything you need it to, and it’s 25 percent off right now.

For those unfamiliar with wood pellet grilling, they work by way of an auger pushing tiny hardwood pellets into flames based on temperature readings from an internal computer. You set the temperature you want to cook at — about 150 to 400 in this case — and it does the fire tending for you. This means you have a grill that is fired by a natural, flavor-imparting fuel that you don’t need to stand next to all day. It’s essentially a hands-off smoker mixed with a capable wood grill.

Today on Amazon, it’s $225 off its regular price, or the lowest price it’s ever been. — Will Price


Fitbit Father’s Day Sale
Save $50:The Fitbit Ionic is one of the best trackers for everyday athletes and weekend warriors, and right now it’s $50 off. Built-in GPS means you can easily log miles run, walked and hiked; the multi-sport modes never miss a rep and smartphone notifications keep you from missing that important email from your boss, or partner. We love that it works for pool laps and gives you a readout of sleep insights including your light, deep and REM sleep minutes.
— Meg Lappe


MWW Rattler Automatic Field Watch
Save $100: The Rattler Field Watch is Manchester Watch Works’s modern take on a favorite Seiko model, the SUS 4s15. Upgraded to 37mm from 34mm and machined from titanium, the Rattler features 100m of water resistance, an automatic Seiko NH35 automatic movement with date display, a sapphire crystal, a screw-down crown and case back and two available dial colors. You also get Super-LumiNova-coated hands and hour markers on the black dial version, and Super-LumiNova-coated hands and black lumed hour markers on the silver dial. Right now, you can take $100 off either version on Drop, for a price of just $229 for this automatic watch. — Oren Hartov
