Monday, August 5


Seiko Prospex Street Series Solar Dive Watch
Save 10%: This Seiko dive watch has all the specs and performance expected of the brand’s Prospex line, but with a Solar-charging movement and a stylishly monochrome gray colorway. Part of Seiko’s “Street Series” of urban-themed watches, it features the distinctive “tuna-can” case with its protective outer “shroud,” crown at 4 o’clock, and a neat dial texture that benefits legibility. It’s boldly sized at 42mm wide, water-resistant to 200m, and not lacking in character. Right now Macy’s is running a deal where you can get it at a discounted price of $405 by entering the promo code “BTS” at checkout. — Zen Love

Calvin Klein Boxer Briefs
Save 50%: Like going to the dentist, eating raw vegetables, and getting eight hours of sleep, buying new underwear is one of those things everyone should do way more often. (The ideal cadence is to refresh everything in your underwear drawer every six months, but you should aim to do it at least once a year.) Now at Nordstrom Rack, you can pick up a pack of three black cotton boxer briefs from Calvin Klein, one of the best sellers in the category. Act fast and get them for an additional 50 percent off the list price of $40. That means they cost just $20 today. — John Zientek

Nike Air VaporMax 2019 Sneakers
Save 30%: Now at Nordstrom, you can save 30 percent on a pair of much-hyped Nike Air VaporMax 2019 sneakers. That means these ultra-lightweight, translucent sneakers are just $133. The design features a stretchy ripstop upper on top of Nike’s flexible Air cushion system. For support, the sneaker has a midfoot cage and external reinforcement in the heel. If you’d like more color options, head over to Nike where you can score a few other options for as little as $114. — John Zientek


Gerber Center-Drive Plus Multi-Tool
Save $46: The right multi-tool has all the functions you need but none you don’t, making it streamlined and easy to access the implement you require at any given time. Gerber’s Center-Drive Plus is just such a product, delivering — among other things — a 3.25-inch partially serrated blade, spring-loaded needle-nose pliers, wire cutters, pry bar and bottle opener.

Most of these tools can be deployed quickly and smoothly thanks to the one-thumb opening system, and right now you can score this beauty for a whopping 32 percent off thanks to Drop. The Center-Drive Plus comes with a good-looking leather sheath, too, but this deal disappears Wednesday, so shop fast. — Steve Mazzucchi

The James Brand Ellis
Save 25%: The James Brand’s Ellis is simple: it has a partially serrated, clip-point blade and a bottle opener/screwdriver/scraper. Both of these implements use a simple lockback construction to stay open during use. They’re also made of Sandvik 12C27 steel, which is a well-rounded material that has excellent edge retention, durability and corrosion resistance (it’s commonly used for ice skate blades). All that is to say that you can put the Ellis through the wringer daily and not worry about how it’s holding up.

That, and its simple, less-than-a-multi-tool, more-than-a-pocket-knife design make it one of our favorite knives available. It’s affordable at its regular price of $99, but right now you can get it for 25 percent off. — Tanner Bowden

Nintendo NES Classic Edition
Save $30: Nintendo released the NES Classic Edition, a miniature version of the NES console from 1985, in 2016 and at that time it was nearly impossible to find — demand was too high. Fast forward several years and it’s a little easier to buy, although for an uptick charge. Listed as $60 on Nintendo’s website, but in order to buy an NES Classic Edition you have to order from a third-party seller like Amazon, which is currently selling models for $80. For a little bit of a deal, however, check out eBay: it’s selling refurbished (by Nintendo) models for just $50. That’s $30 cheaper than what they’re going for on Amazon. — Tucker Bowe

Schuberth C4 Spark
Save 53%: Riding a motorcycle is a delight for the senses, but it can grow a little weary on the ears after a while. Between the roar of the wind rushing past and the drone of the engine, it doesn’t take long for the sounds of a ride to push into the irritation zone — or even start to cause causing hearing damage.

Of course, a good helmet can help offset those potentially-deafening noises. And right now, one of the quietest helmets on the market today—the Schuberth C4 Spark Helmet—is on sale for a massive 53 percent off at RevZilla. — Will Sabel Courtney


MacBook Air 2019
Save 18%: Last month, Apple quietly updated the MacBook Air with a True Tone display that can adapt its color temperature to the room plus a new keyboard, pairing these minor updates with a price drop from $1,199 to $1,099 (and $999 for college students). But now, anyone can get a 128GB model for just $899 thanks to a deal at Best Buy.

Before the Air’s redesign and resurrection in 2018, the plucky little laptop was notable for being the only sub-$1,000 notebook in Apple’s lineup. While the official list price may still be above that threshold, this deal will let you relive the glory days of buying a MacBook that won’t break the bank. — Eric Limer


Chris Reeves Limited Edition Inkosi Knife
Save $97: Anyone who saw our behind-the-scenes profile of Chris Reeves Knives knows the place is downright legendary when it comes to crafting blades of incredible quality, design and aesthetics. The Sebenza was one of the first to garner national acclaim, and the Inkosi is its equally fantastic followup. The drop-point blade is made of S35VN, the best cutlery steel money can buy, and this knife also features thumb studs for ambidextrous use, the signature Reeve “integral” frame lock and simply stunning good looks.

It’s no wonder these knives never go on sale. And yet right now, this Limited Edition Inkosi from Best Made Co. is nearly $100 off — down from $425 to $328 — for those who are willing to wait. Click the link below to sign up, and you’ll get an email when the next batch drops, along with a chance to score a great deal on the last EDC knife you’ll ever need to buy. — Steve Mazzucchi


Foehn Apparel Sale
Save 50%: By now, you’ve heard the catchline “city to mountain;” maybe even “trail to tavern,” “backcountry to bar,” “slope to sidewalk” and all the other alliterations that describe versatile gear that’s both functional and stylish. Not all items that get the distinction actually work that way though — they’re often less technical and don’t look that great, jacks of both trades and masters of neither. One brand that’s managed to find that perfect balance is Foehn, a small rock climbing apparel company based in Canada.

We’ve tested everything that Foehn makes — from the pants that the company launched with to its down hoodie pullover — everywhere from the streets of Brooklyn to the high crags of the Rocky Mountains. It works. It looks good. It draws attention in both urban and backcountry environments (“Who makes those pants?!”). It’s also on sale for 50% off right now when you use the code SUMMER50. — Tanner Bowden


Seiko Prospex PADI Solar Watch
Save 39%: If you’re still on the lookout for an affordable, robust dive watch to accompany you on your summer adventures, you could do much worse than this PADI-edition Seiko Prospex solar diver, the SNE435P1. Featuring a 43.5mm stainless steel case with 200m of water-resistance, a unidirectional dive bezel, luminous hands and indices, date window and matching steel bracelet, the SNE435P1 makes use of a solar-powered quartz movement. Once fully charged, you won’t have to worry about the battery running out of juice for a full 10 months, giving you plenty of bottom time with this handsome diver.

Best of all? The SNE435P1 is currently 39% off on Amazon, for a final price of just $240. — Oren Hartov


Gitman Brothers Vintage x Need Supply Shirts
Save 60%:If you’re looking for a new shirt to compliment — or contrast — your traditional white and blue button-down styles, head over to Need Supply Co. today. Gitman Brothers Vintage is offering some wild versions of the traditional American silhouette for 60 percent off. Pick from various tie-dyed colors — each shirt features the button-down collar, front button placket, chest pocket and center back pleat you already love. — John Zientek


Lodge Cast-Iron Cookware Set
Save 47%: Though a swell of craft cast-iron cookware makers have sprung up in recent years, none match the value of America’s longest-running iron pan manufacturers. Today on Amazon, three separate pans (griddle, grill pan, skillet), pan scrapers, a pot holder and a handle mit can be had for all of $52. That’s 47 percent off the “Essential” pan set’s usual $99 retail price — good for its lowest-recorded price ever. Our recommendation: start with bacon. — Will Price


Made In Butcher Block
Save 25%: The maker of some of our favorite cookware and kitchen knives, Made In’s Austin, Texas-based operation recently expanded to butcher block cutting boards. The juice grooves are cut extra-deep, it comes pre-oiled, there’s a pair of clever handles cut into the sides for carrying and they’re made of the leftover bits of 100 percent Maplewood from a Wisconsin furniture maker. Today on Made In’s site, the $99 cutting board is 25 percent off. Use code BB25 at checkout for the discount. — Will Price

Wednesday, August 7


Bose SoundSport Free
Save $80: When Bose released the SoundSport Free around two years ago, they were selling for $250 a pop, but Bose had since lowered the price to $200; this is the current price of the SoundSport Free on Amazon (see here). However, you can currently get a pair of SoundSport Free that have been “factory renewed” on Bose’s website for $120. That’s significantly cheaper than AirPods. — Tucker Bowe

Fender Custom Shop Joe Bonamassa Vintage Collector Series Special Mod 1955 Relic Telecaster
Save $1,151:The Custom Shop Joe Bonamassa Vintage Collector Series Special Mod 1955 Relic Telecaster has an ash body, 21-fret quartersawn maple neck with a ’57 soft-V profile, a vintage bridge and a single-ply parchment pickguard. The guitar has two hand-wound Tele pickups — a ’55 Tele pickup in the neck and a ’51 Nocaster pickup in the bridge — and a 3-way pickup switch. Also notable: the Tele has a heavily-worn 3-tone sunburst finish that was virtually non-existent on models from the mid-‘50s.
Limited to just 40 instruments which are exclusively carried at Guitar Center, this model is geared towards serious players or avid collectors. And while normal Custom Shop prices can be hard for some to swallow, this guitar is now 25 percent off. That means you can save $1,151 on this ridiculously nice Tele and take it home for just under $3,500. For a person obsessed with the details, this is a deal worth acting on. — John Zientek


Ray-Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses
Save $98%:In the world of sunglasses, it doesn’t get much more iconic than a pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarers. First released in 1956, the design has hardly changed in over half a century. If you’ve been wanting the style, but the list price is more than you want to spend, Nordstrom Rack has you covered; you can get a pair of $178 Wayfarers in either black or Havana for just $80. What’s more, these Italian-made shades also come with polarized lenses to protect your eyes all summer long — hard to beat that. — John Zientek


The North Face Apparel Sale
Save up to 43%: You know The North Face for things like down jackets, hiking backpacks and innovation breakthroughs in technical outerwear. The company makes everything required to get you to the top of a mountain or down a hundred-mile trail, but if you’re like us, you don’t find yourselves in those environments as often as you’d like. That’s where hats and tees come in. These basics are to everyday life what jackets and tents are to expeditions — you can’t live without them. And right now, you can stock up on t-shirts, hoodies, beanies and caps at Nordstrom for up to 43% off. (More technical pieces like insulating jackets, fleece, and rugged packs and duffels are also included in the sale.) — Tanner Bowden


Yeti Tocayo Backpack Sale
Save $70: Yeti Nation will be sad to see the Tocayo Backpack 26 disappear from Yeti’s site and stores as it’s headed for retirement. However, that means right now is the best time to buy the black or tan backpack. It’s tough, durable and sturdy, just like all its fellow Yeti comrades. Spacious pockets and interior divisions mean it’s easy to keep everything organized. Pair all that with a waterproof exterior (will stay dry in the rain), a padded laptop sleeve and firm EVA padding along the base and back and you have, quite possibly, the last backpack you’ll ever have to buy. Save over $70 today — before the Tocayo disappears into the archives of Yeti legacy. — Meg Lappe


Timex Expedition Scout
Save 40%: Right now you can grab Timex Men’s Expedition Ranger Watch in one of three iterations for between $40 and $47, depending on the model (a blue-dial version is available on a brown leather strap for $40, while a grey-dial version ships on a matching bracelet for $43, and a black-dial version ships on a matching bracelet for $47). All three versions feature an identical 43mm steel case with 50m of water resistance (good for the field, but not for diving), an analog quartz movement with date display and a unidirectional count-up bezel. The highly legible dials also feature sword hands and Indiglo illumination for low-light visibility. — Oren Hartov

Calvin Klein Underwear
Save 50%: Like going to the dentist, eating raw vegetables, and getting eight hours of sleep, buying new underwear is one of those things everyone should do way more often. (The ideal cadence is to refresh everything in your underwear drawer every six months, but you should aim to do it at least once a year.) Now at Nordstrom Rack, you can pick up a pack of three black cotton boxer briefs from Calvin Klein, one of the best sellers in the category. Act fast and get them for an additional 50 percent off the list price of $40. That means they cost just $20 today. — John Zientek


Campsite Coffee Makers
Save up to 25%: There’s something wonderful about enjoying a freshly-brewed cup of coffee in the wilderness. All of the pleasures that the beverage imparts when experienced in the comforts of home or at a favorite cafe are multiplied at a campsite, even when high-end barista machinery is unavailable.

Without a countertop appliance, coffee making becomes a modified and slightly more humble process. However, there is a range of lightweight and packable brewers available, from French press to pour over, but GSI’s JavaPress is our favorite for its ability to serve multiple cups in one batch and for its easy-to-clean construction. It’s currently 20 percent off at Huckberry.

French press not your brewing method of choice? GSI’s Packable Campsite Pour-Over Set is also on sale at Huckberry for 25% off. The kit includes an adjustable crank-powered burr grinder, a collapsible pour-over cone, a reusable nylon mesh filter and a spoon. All are lightweight and packable (as camping gear should be) yet fully fit for wilderness caffeinating. — Tanner Bowden

Breville Bambino Espresso Maker
Save $97: Breville rules the home espresso world with a quality-focused, user-friendly fist. Available in late 2018, the Bambino Plus is one of the newest and most affordable machines in the company’s espresso machine portfolio. It’s simple to use, compact and comes with Breville’s standard (and exceptional) milk frothing wand, PID temperature control and event, consistent shots. It’s one of very few legitimately good espresso makers at the $500 price point. Today on Amazon, it’s $100 off its usual asking price; good for its lowest price ever. — Will Price


Outdoor Voices Gym and Running Apparel Sale
Save 50%: Outdoor Voices makes some of the softest and most comfortable tanks, tees and shorts, and right now, you can save up to 50 percent off. Whether you’re looking for a new pair of gym shorts, or something to wear around all weekend long, we give Outdoor Voices shorts and shirts our seal of approval. OV was a winner in both our Best Gym Shorts and Best Running Shorts of 2018.

The brand rarely has sales, especially ones this big, so we highly recommend you check it out immediately. Shop the below items while supplies last. — Meg Lappe


Seiko Prospex SRPB97 “Orange Samurai”
Save 50%: The Seiko Prospex SRPB97 “Orange Samurai” is exactly what you want in a summertime timepiece. It has a boldly-colored orange dial, runs Seiko’s proven 4R35 automatic movement and has a chunky case to keep that movement safe at depths up to 200 meters (not to mention the occasional careless knock here or there).

Best of all, it’s cheap. Right now at Macy’s, you can get it for a full 50 percent off. That takes the price down to just $263 from its full retail of $525. And if orange isn’t exactly your thing, Macy’s is offering tons of other Seiko dive watches on sale to choose from as well. — Andrew Connor


Carhartt WIP Wardrobe Basics
Save up to 55%: If you’re in the market for some solid wardrobe staples, head over to End today. Currently, you can save up to 55 percent on a bunch of garments from Carhartt WIP. The Work-in-Progess line produces hardwearing clothing — like the brand’s workwear — but with updated fits and colors. Choose from shirts, hoodies, pants and more — prices start at $25. — John Zientek


Jabra Elite 65e headset
Save $160: The Jabra Elite 65e headset is arguably the best value proposition for anybody who wants in-ear headphones with active noise cancellation. Their nearest rival is the Bose QuietComfort 30, which costs $299, and that’s $99 more than the Jabra Elite 65e.

If you’re looking for a really sweet deal on in-ear noise-canceling headphones, you can buy a refurbished pair of Jabra Elite 65e on eBay for just $40. That’s a pretty steep discount. If you’re looking for a new pair, Amazon is discounting the Jabra Elite 65e for $153 right now. — Tucker Bowe


Dyson Vacuums
Save $100: Deals can be found on Dyson’s covetable vacuums fairly frequently through third-party vendors on Ebay and its certified manufacturer-refurbished program, but deals on newer vacuums are rarer. Today on its site, vacuums like the classic MultiFloor and cordless V8 are marked $100 off their retail prices. Are they cheap? No, this is Dyson. Are they more reasonable? Yes. — Will Price

This Could Be the Best Deal on Fleece Jackets Before Fall

Save 43%: Powered by the cal. V157 quartz movement, the PADI special edition features a 47mm case, Hardlex mineral crystal, date display, Lumibright-coated hands and markers, and a unidirectional rotating dive bezel. It’s water-resistant to 200m and features a screw-down crown and case back. Once fully charged, the power reserve on the V157 movement lasts roughly 10 months.If mechanical watches aren’t your thing, then this PADI special edition could be your water watch this summer. — Oren Hartov


Gerber Center-Drive Plus Multi-Tool
Save $46: The right multi-tool has all the functions you need but none you don’t, making it streamlined and easy to access the implement you require at any given time. Gerber’s Center-Drive Plus is just such a product, delivering — among other things — a 3.25-inch partially serrated blade, spring-loaded needle-nose pliers, wire cutters, pry bar and bottle opener.

Most of these tools can be deployed quickly and smoothly thanks to the one-thumb opening system, and right now you can score this beauty for a whopping 32 percent off thanks to Drop. The Center-Drive Plus comes with a good-looking leather sheath, too, but this deal disappears Wednesday, so shop fast. — Steve Mazzucchi

Save up to 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 Round and the Sartoria models. Normally $350, these shades are now just $100 while supplies last. — John Zientek


Todd Snyder Dylan Suede Trucker Jacket
Save up to 50%: New York designer Todd Snyder recently gave the classic trucker jacket a major overhaul. Instead of crafting the casual style in denim or roughout suede, he opted to use luxe Italian suede.

Made in Italy, the Dylan jacket features a snap-front closure, two chest pockets slant hand pockets. It has a trim fit, hits at the hip and is unlined. Available in pink or green, it now starts at $499 — act fast to score this great fall upgrade. — John Zientek
