Seiko SNN241 Chronograph Watch
Save 56%: 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
Barbour x Engineered Garments Jackets
Save 35%: British outerwear brand Barbour has been making durable weather-resistant jackets since 1894 and has a reputation for quality. Recently, the brand teamed up with NYC-based label Engineered Garments to reimagine a number of classic silhouettes. The collab pieces — a bomber jacket, a cropped jacket, a riding coat and a smock — are made in England from lightweight, hydrocarbon-coated cotton and feature raglan-sleeve construction. And now at End, they’re priced to sell at a 35 percent discount. If you need a lightweight layer to keep you dry as summer comes to an end, these styles are definitely worth a look. — John Zientek
Bell Race Star Helmets
Save Up to 50%: Bell’s Race Star helmet is a dynamite motorcycle lid for anyone who plans on hitting the track or back roads with verve. (Or at least wants other riders to think they’re hitting the pavement with verve.) Made with a carbon fiber 3K Carbon Shell to minimize weight, the Race Star doesn’t sacrifice offers protection at the altar of lightness; it meets or goes beyond Snell M2015 and DOT certifications, and packs a three-layer Flex Impact Liner to deal with crashes at any speeds. It’s been tested in wind tunnels to make sure the air flows over it with minimal fuss, while the Panovision viewport offers better visibility in all directions compared with Bell helmets past. And, of course, it just looks sweet.
Right now, thanks to a closeout deal over at Revzilla, you can pick up several variants of the Bell Race Star for massive savings — as much as 50% off on certain models. But there is, however, a catch: These sales are only available on small and extra-small helmets. If you need a bigger lid, you’ll probably want to look elsewhere; but if you’re cursed/blessed with a tiny head, well, today’s your lucky day.

American-Made New Balance 990V4 Sneakers
Save up to 25%: As the weather in North America transitions from warm summer evenings to crisp fall mornings, consider investing in a new pair of sneakers. If you’re looking for a domestic option that won’t break the bank, head over to Zappos. today. The retailer is currently offering 20 percent off the American-made New Balance 990v4.
Available in two tonal colorways, the style features a pigskin nubuck upper, an Encap midsole and a rubber outsole. Either is a solid option for any casual wardrobe, so if you’ve been prepping for fall, don’t sleep on these. — John Zientek
Chaco Sandal Sale
Save 70%: Sandals are made for summer, and thanks to recent reductions in the stigmatization of strappy, open-toe footwear, this particular summer seems to be the ideal season to dust off the pair at the back of your closet. Sandals aren’t just for camping and whitewater rafting anymore either: fashionistas might hate to admit it, but sandals are a common sight everywhere from Colorado to downtown Manhattan (wearing them with socks — gasp! — is also becoming a thing).
Maybe you missed this bandwagon the last time it came around, or your old pair is in need of a refresh. In either case, now is an excellent time because REI is selling Chaco sandals in a range of different styles at up to 70 percent off. — Tanner Bowden
All-Clad Factory Second Cookware
Save Up to 75%: All-Clad’s covetable cookware has been the option for high-end stainless steel since the brand literally invented bonded cookware in 1971. The only knock against them? That price tag.
Today, however, is a mammoth exception — the All-Clad factory seconds sale is live. The lot includes pieces from all the brand’s classic lines — D5, C4, non-stick and a few limited edition lines. But if you just want classic All-Clad, look under the section labeled “Stainless Cookware.” There you’ll find all the saute pans, fry pans, stock pots and sauciers you could ever want.
At up to 75 percent off, these are the lowest prices you’ll find on unused All-Clad outside of visiting the company’s in-person seconds sale at the factory. — Will Price
RMU Outdoors BRFCS Travel Bag
Save 15%: Rocky Mountain Underground, or RMU for short, is a ski company, but its BRFCS is a contender in the realm of adventure travel bags. The BRFCS — fill in the vowels for pronunciation — was the Colorado brand’s second foray into outdoor and travel and builds on the success of its Core Pack, an all-purpose backcountry adventure backpack.
The BRFCS is a carry-on compatible bag with a 35-liter base capacity that expands to 50 liters. RMU outfitted its interior with compartmentalized storage for clothing, (there’s enough room for ski boots), and smaller zip pockets for necessities and essentials; there’s also a false bottom. The BRFCS also features a padded laptop sleeve and a removable compression strap with hardware that doubles as a bottle opener. It can be carried like its namesake, with backpack straps and a stow-away hipbelt or as a shoulder bag.
The BRFCS is currently available at a discount of 15% off at Huckberry.

Special Edition Fender Deluxe Telecaster
Save $150: For almost 70 years, the Fender Telecaster has been a integral part of countless hit records and live rigs. The workhorse guitar was first introduced as the Broadcaster in 1950, and since then the instrument hasn’t changed a whole lot. The dead-simple design features a solid body with a single cutaway, a bolt-on neck and a couple pickups. That basic setup allowed for versatility and it became a favorite of musicians in genres ranging from country to jazz to metal.
If you’ve been looking to add a Tele to your collection, head over to Guitar Center today. Right now, you can currently save $150 on an already affordable Special Edition Deluxe Telecaster. The guitar merges the best of the classic design with a few new player-centric features.
It has a solid ash body with an aged cherry-burst finish, a 1-piece fast-action maple neck with a modern-C shape, medium jumbo frets and Hot Standard Tele pickups. This Mexican-made Tele also has a vintage-style 3-barrel string-thru-body bridge and cast/sealed machine heads.
Normally $700, this guitar is just $550 today — act fast if you want a great deal.
— John Zientek
Apple Watch Series 4
Save $50: The Apple Watch Series 4 (GPS) is the Apple Watch that most people should buy. It’s the best-looking smartwatch with the biggest and brightest display that Apple has ever created; plus it has all the new features that the Series 3 lacks, including fall detection, a built-in EKG and a variety of fitness features. This model lacks built-LTE, however, but I’d argue that most people don’t need to use their Apple Watch as a phone, nor do they want to pay the extra $10 each month on their phone bill. Right now you can save $50 on either the 40mm or 44mm model. If you’re looking for an even cheaper deal and you’re cool with buying the older Apple Watch, the Series 3 (GPS) is selling for just under $200. — Tucker Bowe
Ikea Furniture and Home Goods
Save Up to 25%: Hidden beneath the release of its mammoth 2020 product catalog, Ikea announced price reductions for hundreds of products online and in-store. The price drops are permanent, so the discounts aren’t sales, but they do represent affordable products becoming more affordable. The lot isn’t skewed to one area of the home, with everything from drawers to silverware included. — Will Price
Tuesday, August 13
Citizen Eco-Drive Promaster Tough Watch
Save 28%: The Citizen Eco-Drive Promaster Tough is one of the hardiest watches available. Featuring a surface-hardened treatment to its 42mm steel case, a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, 200m of water resistance, a matching steel bracelet and a quartz movement powered by any available light, this is a watch that’s practically begging to get the crap kicked out of it in the great outdoors.
If this is the sort of timepiece that appeals to you, well, you’re in luck — right now you can get the Citizen Eco-Drive Promaster Tough for about 28% off using the code “SHINE” at checkout on Macy’s, a savings of $139 off the list price of $495.
— Oren Hartov
Keen Sandal Sale
Save 50%: Keen makes some of the best breathable and functional hiking sandals and boots and today, they’re all up to 50 percent off. While some sandals look like something your dad would wear, we love the latest ones for rafting, boating and yes, hiking. Thanks to sturdy rubber soles and arch-cushioning footbeds, you can rock these puppies on the mountain, relaxing around the campfire and even biking. A few of our top picks? The Evofit One and the Rialto II H2. Shop a variety of styles and colors on Keen.com today. — Meg Lappe

Currently, you can save up to 75 percent on a huge range of clothing at the Warehouse Event. Choose from jeans, jackets, tees and more — the prices are hard to beat. — John Zientek
Jaybird Run Headphone Sale
Save $65: Jaybird makes some of the best running headphones available, and right now, the Jaybird Run earbuds are 36 percent off and down to just $115. There’s never been a better time to buy a pair of sweat-proof true wireless earbuds. Back when Jaybird first launched the Run earbuds, we tested and were impressed. Our editors liked how easily they fit in their ears, the customizable audio menu (via the app) and the quick charge ability — five minutes in the case for an hour of sound. The Jaybird Run earbuds typically sell for $180, but on Amazon today they’re just $115. Shop the deal while you can. — Meg Lappe
Breville Bambino Espresso Machine
Save $100: 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 $97 off its usual asking price; good for its lowest price ever. — Will Price

Seiko Men’s Watches
Save 33%: Seiko consistently offers some of the best value for money in watches, even before the sales start. That being said, we all relish the opportunity to save even more, and right now Macy’s is offering deep discounts on tons of popular models (roughly 33%), from the Presage dress watch line to the professional Prospex diver models. With such variety on offer, there’s truly something for everybody.
— Oren Hartov
Patagonia Nano Puff Jacket
Save $50: The Nano Puff Jacket runs typically for $199, but right now you can score one for 25% off in previous season’s colors at REI. It’s one of those if-it-ain’t-broke pieces that Patagonia launches every season in new colors but the guts of the jacket remain the same. You’ll never need to update it either because Patagonia’s zero-questions repair program will take care of any fixes as it continues to age. (I’ve taken advantage of this multiple times, and my jacket has the new zipper and patch to prove it.) — Tanner Bowden
Kryptonite Evolution Bike Lock Sale
Save 26%: Looking up a bike outside always comes with its fair share of risk. A proper bike lock can help lower the chances that your bike will go missing overnight or while you’re at work. Right now, you can pick up a lock from Kryptonite for 26 percent off. The Kryptonite Evolution 11-14mm U-Lock Mini 7 usually sells for $67, but today, you can pick one up for just $50.
The Mini comes with 13 mm hardened steel that claims to hold together through hand tools and bolt cutters. A steel looped cable increases your bike’s protection. Each lock comes with three keys that you can store on your person, at work and home. Pro tip: register your keys as soon as you get your lock and Kryptonite will send you two new ones in case you lose them. Pick up one of Kryptonite’s most robust locks today.
— Meg Lappe
Sony WH-1000XM3 Noise-Canceling Headphones
Save $150: Right now, eBay is selling refurbished Sony WH-1000XM3 noise-canceling headphones for under $200. That’s a pretty terrific deal considering these are arguably the best noise-canceling headphones you can buy, and new models typically cost around $350. It should be noted that Bose and Sony both recently dropped the prices of their QuietComfort 35 II (
Apple Watch Series 3
Save $80: The Apple Watch Series 3 is on sale on Amazon right now for $199, which is $80 off its normal price. It’s the lowest price that Apple’s smartwatch has dropped to, and it’s a great deal for most people looking to buy their first Apple Watch. The catch is that this on-sale Series 3 is only available in a 38mm model, meaning you probably need to have a small wrist to wear it. (The 42mm model is not on sale.)
— Tucker Bowe
Dr. Martens x Engineered Garments 1461 Smith Shoes
Save 20%: New York clothing brand Engineered Garments teamed up with Dr. Martens to riff on a classic shoe style. The collaboration 1461 Smith shoe has a smooth leather upper, a lace-up closure and a velcro strap. Made in the UK, the oxford silhouette features a branded hell loop, a leather lining, Dr. Martens’ Air-Cushioned sole and Goodyear welt construction.
Available in a range of colors, the shoe is now 20 percent off at Need Supply Co. and costs just $184. If you’re looking for an iconic silhouette with a twist, don’t sleep on this. — John Zientek

Choose from shirts, hoodies, pants and more — prices start at $25. — John Zientek
Seiko Recraft Solar Chronograph
Save 33%: This fun, colorful chronograph watch seems straight out of the 1970s and, with its matching NATO strap, is a perfect way to get into the summer spirit. It exists in Seiko’s retro-inspired Recraft Series and features solar-charged quartz movement — which means it’s highly accurate and hassle-free, never requiring a battery change. At 43.5mm wide in steel, it will wear boldly with short sleeves, and the Seiko name means quality, value, and the respect of the watch crowd. Best of all, it’s on sale now for $220 by using the promo code “DAD” at checkout, 33% off its full retail price of $350. — Oren Hartov
Todd Snyder Chinos
Save 33%: A well-made pair of chinos is essential to any man’s wardrobe. If you’re looking to invest in a new pair for the fall season, the Tab Front Chino from Todd Snyder should be at the top of your list. These slim-fit pants are from soft piece-dyed twill and feature belt loops and a zip fly. Normally $118, they’re now 33 percent off and cost $79 — not a bad price for some of the best chinos available. — John Zientek
MVMT Watches, Sunglasses and Jewelry
Save 26%: Today, in honor of the brand’s 6th anniversary, everything on MVMT’s website (every.single.thing.) is 26% off. MVMT also happens to manufacture inexpensive but well made sunglasses and jewelry in addition to watches, so if you’re in the market for an affordable pair of shades to help finish out the summer, this may be the time to buy — especially with so many different styles on offer. Here are some of our favorite sunglasses and watches from the sale, but it’s worth heading over to MVMT’s site and checking out the full roster. — Oren Hartov
Belstaff Raleigh Jacket
Save 23%: Belstaff is a byword for quality in the motorcycle jacket world. For nearly a century, the British company has produced premium jackets using exceptional materials and strong attention to style and detail. The trouble is Belstaff is also a byword for expensive in the motorcycle jacket world. You pay for every bit of that quality and reputation. A high-end Belstaff jacket can run well north of $1,000. But, right now, you can get a huge discount on one of their high-end jackets.
The Belstaff Raleigh jacket is an excellent all-arounder for fall riding. It’s meant to combine fashion with hand-finished leather and a classic-meets-modern look, and it’s highly functional, with a 1mm-thick hide and low-profile, flexible armor. Normally, the Belstaff Raleigh jacket runs for $1,295. But, RevZilla’s sale this week will drop the price tag down to $999, a 23% discount. If you’ve been waiting to splurge on a high-end British motorcycle jacket, now may be the time. — Tyler Duffy
Marathon General Purpose Quartz Field Watch
Save 20%: Marathon Watch Company makes some of our favorite military timepieces, including a General Purpose field watch available in both quartz and mechanical versions. Having tried both, we can attest to the fact that they’re comfortable, highly legible and robust. Right now, you can take 20% off the quartz-powered date version of the General Purpose field watch on Huckberry, which has been discounted from $400 down to $320. — Oren Hartov
L.L. Bean Boot Sale
Save 70%: The word “iconic” gets thrown around a lot these days, but in the case of L.L. Bean’s weather-beating duck boots, it’s a pretty spot-on descriptor. Their proven effectiveness at keeping your feet warm and dry in the slushiest of weather has made them a go-to shoe for everyone from hunters to city slickers. And right now, a ton of pairs are on sale, along with a plethora of clothing, outdoor goods, bags and more — all for up to 70 percent off. Check out the version above with a tumbled black leather collar and a cut that reaches just to the ankle, makes it easy to wear with a variety of trousers.

— Justin Fenner
Bose SoundSport Free
Save $80: When they were released around two years ago, the Bose SoundSport Free 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. It’s true that Bose is selling “factory renewed” models, but every product comes with a 30-day trial period — if you’re not happy with the product you can return it and get a full refund.

Adidas Ultraboost Sale
Save 50%: The feel-good Adidas Ultraboost is normally $180 but thanks to a summer sale, you can spend just $100 on a brand new pair. These best-selling sneakers are responsive, soft and fast — you can’t go wrong with a Boost purchase.

The Solarboost was one of our best new running shoes of 2019, that’s also 50 percent off today, too and down to just $65. Head over to Adidas.com and enter AUGUST20 at checkout to get an additional 20 percent off all sale items. — Meg Lappe
Kamado Joe 18-Inch Grill
Save $400: Most grillers have heard of the Big Green Egg — a heavy ceramic, heat-retaining, outdoor grill, smoker and oven. Anyone who’s tried to buy one also knows they don’t come cheap and that you can’t buy them online. The Egg didn’t have much real competition in its space for the first few decades of its existence (the company was founded in the mid-70s), but it has encountered a great deal of it with Kamado Joe.
The Kamado Joe is a heavy ceramic, heat-retaining, outdoor grill, smoker and oven that’s backed by a lifetime warranty), and it’s available online and comes with features the Big Green Egg doesn’t. The two most impactful is its patented Divide & Conquer cooking system, which manifests itself as grates that can be lifted up or down in certain sections (BBQ Guys has a nice illustration of it), and an ash drawer that slides out for simplified cleaning (the lid is also much easier to lift, for what it’s worth).
Typically retailing north of $1,000, the 18-inch Kamado Joe Classic is more than $400 off at Lowe’s right now. — Will Price
Timex Blackjack Watch
Save 50%: We were enthusiastic about the “Blackjack” watch when it first debuted, but in case you need a refresher, this is a sleek, automotive-inspired timepiece with cool “roulette wheel” dial done up in black and white, a black-finished case, 50m of water resistance, a quartz movement and a black Nato strap. The watch generally retails for only $138, but right now, you can nab it for just $69, a 50% savings.
— Oren Hartov
Adidas x White Mountaineering Sneakers
Save $40: If you’re looking to pick up some limited-edition trail runners on sale, head over to Need Supply Co. today. Currently, the Terrex Agravic sneakers are $40 and cost just $160. The styles are made in collaboration with Japanese brand White Mountaineering and feature low-profile uppers and treaded outsoles.
The Speed + model has a mesh upper, sock-like collar, lace-up front and contrast details. If you prefer no laces, pick up the BOA version, which also includes a ripstop upper, Boost midsole and synthetic overlays. Both styles are available in sizes 8 to 12 — limit one pair per customer. — John Zientek
Rockymounts Westslope 2 Bike Rack
Save $80: Of all the ways to transport a bike with your car, we’re partial to the hitch-mounted tray. Loading and unloading bikes on one is remarkably easy because it doesn’t require that you remove a wheel, and when you aren’t toting two-wheelers it folds up nicely against the back of your car. Rockymounts’s Westslope 2 spaces bikes perfectly to minimize handlebars getting in the way. Plus, it adds an extra layer of convenience in that it can tilt away from your rig so that when it’s full, you can still get into the trunk.
Right now it’s 25% off (a rare sale), which hashes out to a welcome $80 in savings.
— Tanner Bowden
Sony WH-1000XM3 Noise-Canceling Headphones
Save $150: Right now, eBay is selling refurbished Sony WH-1000XM3 noise-canceling headphones for under $200. That’s a pretty terrific deal considering these are arguably the best noise-canceling headphones you can buy, and new models typically cost around $350.
It should be noted that Bose and Sony both recently dropped the prices of their QuietComfort 35 II (
$349 $299) and WH-1000XM3 ( $349 $299) headphones, respectively, by $50 — Amazon is selling both their headphones for under $300.
That said, if you’ve been wanting to purchase some really great noise-canceling headphones, which are right up there with the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 ($399) and the Bose QuietComfort 35 II, then you should jump on this eBay deal. — Tucker Bowe
Roku TV Wireless Speakers
Save $50: Most new TVs look gorgeous but they’re so thin that they can’t properly house good speakers – meaning they sound great. The other problem is that upgrading to a soundbar or receiver-based system can be expensive. Enter the Roku TV Wireless Speakers. The 2.0 system only costs $200 and is designed to pair perfectly with any Roku smart TV. The speakers connect over wi-fi and you just need to follow the setup instructions on your TV. There’s no dealing with any wires or finding the right HDMI or optical port on your TV. It’s easy. (Note: the speakers won’t work with Roku streaming sticks. The TV must have the Roku software baked into them to work with these speakers.) — Tucker Bowe
