DWR, Hay & Blu Dot furniture
Save 15 to 20 percent: If you’re in the market for original designs and well-made furniture, today is yours. Design Within Reach, Blu Dot and Hay are each hosting separate sales ranging from 15 to 20 percent off hundreds of products. Those discounts may not seem significant to you, but most of these products won’t be on sale but once or twice a year, and never discounted more than 15 to 20 percent off. Between each site, there’s enough stuff to outfit a whole house. Happy browsing.
Bonavita Coffee Maker
Save $88: Despite its name, the Connoisseur isn’t snooty. It features the same Gold Cup brewing standards as Bonavita’s older brewers — a one-button off-on interface and a flat bottom filter basket. Its most notable change is the basket-to-carafe connection. Instead of the basket resting atop the carafe during brewing (meaning you need to put the used grounds and filter basket on the counter or in the sink to pour coffee), it fits into a slot hanging over the pot. It’s a small change, and one we noted as one of the few issues with its predecessor. Today on Drop, the Connoisseur is marked down $88 — good for the lowest price we’ve seen. — Will Price
Faribault Woolen Mill Scout Blanket The Faribault Woolen Mill Co. has been making wool blankets since the end of the Civil War. In the past 150 years, they’ve mastered the process of constructing a robust yet soft blanket. Nowhere in their lineup is this more evident than the Scout. With a 64” x 90” wingspan and made from 100% wool, the Scout is the essential wintertime warmer. And coming with a custom bridle-leather blanket holder, the Scout is ready for all your weekend activities, from sidling up to a crackling campfire to snuggling up with a good book. Available in four distinct color ways. Get these American-made for more than 35% off, only in the Gear Patrol Store.— Gear Patrol Store
At Just $399, This Iconic Motorcycle Jacket Is an Absolute Steal
Save 43%: Belstaff has been producing legendary motorsport apparel for nearly 100 years. Born from motorcyclists’ universal need for sturdy all-weather gear, Belstaff made a name for itself with its waxed-cotton-and-leather equipment. Developed for racers and adventurers, these jackets largely lived on the fringes until they were carried into the mainstream on the back of actor/racer/badass Steve McQueen. And if, like McQueen, you have your eye on a Belstaff, now is the time to pick one up at RevZilla.The Belstaff Brooklands Jacket is an eight-ounce waxed cotton classic buzzing and ready for two-wheeled adventure. The Brooklands is made with removable armor in the shoulders and elbows, as well as a sleeve in the back to insert further protection. The Brooklands jacket was made with its namesake race track in mind, with an added padded layer for extra safety. The jacket is not only made for a tightly-tucked cafe racer, it’s such a stylish design, it can be worn right off the track and straight to dinner. (There’s also a leather version, though it costs a fair amount more, especially with this sale in effect.) Buy this piece of gear as beautiful as it is rugged while the getting’s good. And the getting’s real good. — Peter Corn
There’s an Insane Sale On Top-of-the-Line Motorcycle Helmets Right Now
Save Up to 53%: Your motorcycle gear isn’t something to take for granted. What you wear when you ride can literally save your skin, so it’s worth investing a little extra money to make sure you’re protected as well as possible. However, while the motorcycle lifestyle can have a tantalizingly low cost of entry compared to owning a car, buying the necessary protective clothing — pants, jackets, boots and especially helmets — can quickly run up a steep tab, making the cheaper, lesser options more attractive, even if they may not be quite as good. Right now, however, is the time to upgrade your head protection if there ever was one. Right now over at Revzilla, there’s an insane sale on top-of-the-line motorcycle helmets. You can save up to $800 on select top-tier motorcycle helmets from brands like AGV, Schuberth and Bell. If you’ve always wanted the performance and protection from one of the best motorcycle helmets available today (and really, why wouldn’t you want that?), now’s your chance to save a few hundred dollars and upgrade your lid game at the same time. –Bryan Campbell
Save 40% On This Exquisite Porsche 356 Speedster Model
Save 40%: Purists love the Porsche 356 Speedster, the stunning precursor to the iconic 911. But buying a genuine article can get ridiculously expensive; even dubiously pedigreed rare 356s can fetch seven-figure prices at auctions. So can we interest you in an exquisite 356 model instead? Right now, Drop is having a warehouse sale on Porsche diecast models made by Autoart. The 356 Speedster is 1/18th scale with steerable wheels, rubber tires and a unique rear-mounted engine. It’s available for just $91, which is 40 percent off the normal price. Given the prices at the official Porsche shop, buying anything Porsche-related beyond a coffee mug at a reasonable cost can be considered an absolute steal. — Tyler Duffy

Kershaw Shuffle II Folding Knife
Save $28: We all know the feeling: you need to cut something, so you reach for your favorite EDC knife… only to realize it’s in your other bag. Or it’s in your car. Or it’s at the office. It’s not the end of the world, but it’s frustrating problem with an easy solution: two favorite knives. And right now The Drop is making that solution even easier by offering up a two-pack of the popular Kershaw Shuffle II for $28 off.
The second iteration of this unassuming 3-ounce knife has much to offer, inclined a 2.5-inch blade with a piercing tanto profile, a bottle opener and a flathead screwdriver. It’s also available in three colors (black, olive and tan) and you can get any color combo you desire. Stash one Shuffle II on your nightstand and one in another go-to spot (bag, car, office or elsewhere), and no matter where you find yourself, your favorite EDC knife will always be within easy reach. — Steve Mazzucchi
Arc’teryx Alpha SV Jacket
Save $224: The best ski deals tend to surface at the end of the season, as retailers look to move out the current inventory to make room for next year’s crop. But every once in a while, a sweet deal surfaces on the eve of a new season, a golden opportunity for those with the alacrity to pounce. Such is the case with Arc’teryx’s top-of-the-line Alpha SV jacket, which Backcountry is currently moving at a 30 percent discount.
Weighing in at just over a pound, this jacket is the choice of many a powder hound, mountain guide and expert alpinist for several reasons. First of all, it boasts the unmatched waterproofing and breathability of a Gore-Tex Pro 3-layer membrane, ideal for off-piste adventures. The Alpha SV also features tough N100p-X face fabric, WaterTight pit zips, an adjustable storm hood and an array of pockets to ensure your touring gear is always within easy reach. The only catch? The huge discount only applies to the Zevan colorway, a pretty sharp-looking dark green with fluorescent yellow accents that’s available in small, medium and large. But if that causes you a moment’s pause, just think how many après-ski beers you can buy with that extra $224. — Steve Mazzucchi
Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2 Running Shoes
Save $72: Thirty-six years. It seems impossible, but that’s how long the Pegasus name has been part of Nike’s running shoe offerings. And based on the latest iterations, this beloved series isn’t going away anytime soon. Case in point: the Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2s, which are loaded with elements that make runners smile.
Chief among those qualities are a light and breathable lofted mesh and synthetic upper, an ultralight, energy-returning Nike ZoomX midsole and a burly rubber outsole that provides traction on all sorts of surfaces. We rarely see these shoes on sale, but right now JackRabbit is offering a couple colorways (including the Electric Green shown above) at 40 percent off in select sizes. Pounce now and you’ll be running happy all fall long. — Steve Mazzucchi
Giro Aether MIPS Helmet
Save $45: For those in the know in the helmet world, MIPS is a pretty big deal. Short for “multi-directional impact protection system,” the label applies to helmets featuring a plastic liner that acts as a slip plane to redistribute the sort of rolling impacts that characterize many bike accidents. The next evolution is MIPS Spherical, where two layers of foam on the outside of the helmet mimic the sliding effect without the sacrifices in fit and ventilation that traditional MIPS brings.
All of which is to say, MIPS Spherical is pretty cutting-edge protective stuff, usually only available at a premium, such as the $370 cost of a Giro Aether MIPS Helmet. The favorite of a number of Tour de France riders, the helmet also boasts a laser-cut shell seamlessly fused to the EPS foam, Roc Loc 5 Plus easy adjustability and 11 deep vents for optimal ventilation. Right now it’s on sale for $325 (in the low-key coolest Olive/Citron colorway) at Competitive Cyclist. Talk about a safe bet.
— Steve Mazzucchi
Mountain Hardwear Ghost Whisperer Down Jacket
Save $145: We’ve often said that the best time to score amazing cold-weather apparel deals is when it’s warm out. However, once in a while, an amazing sale surfaces even as the temps are dropping. Such is the case with Mountain Hardwear’s Ghost Whisperer Down Jacket, which is currently going for a hard-to-fathom 45 percent off at Backcountry. This isn’t any old down jacket, either. The Ghost Whisperer is a top-of-the-line item, an ultralight option that’s perfect for climbing, hiking, backpacking and other outdoor adventures. This jacket features easy-packing 800-fill down, ripstop fabric and a hydrophobic treatment to keep you warm and dry should the skies open up. The only caveat is that the massive discount only applies to one color: manta grey. But it is available in a range of sizes, and there are smaller discounts on two other colors if you’re more picky than thrifty. — Steve Mazzucchi
Adidas Ultraboost 19 Shoes
Save $54: The popular Adidas Ultraboost normally goes for $180 but thanks to a limited sale, you can spend just $126 on a brand-new pair. These best-selling sneakers are responsive, soft and fast, great for running but also for wearing at the gym. We generally steer clear of sales where the sizing is limited, but that is not the case here —more than a dozen sizes are available at the sale price. You just can’t be too picky about color; the sale only applies to 10 of the 26 colorways. Click around for the deals and you are sure to find something you love.— Meg Lappe
Outerknown Blanket Overshirt
Save 30%:Today at Outerknown, you can save 30 percent on one of the best overshirts available.

If you’re in need of a good fall boot, consider this solid Blundstone deal at Zappos.

Bose SoundTouch 300 Soundbar
Save $250: The Bose SoundTouch 300 is an excellent soundbar that will work well with any of the latest 4K TVs. It supports Alexa as well. When it was released in 2017, Bose was selling the SoundTouch 300 for $699 — but being two-years-old, Amazon has dropped its price to $449, which is the cheapest it has ever been. It’s a pretty solid deal, especially considering the soundbar is very similar in price, size and capabilities to the Sonos Playbar ($699); actually, according to CNET‘s Ty Pendlebury, the SoundTouch 300 has the Playbar beat “in terms of both sound stage and ‘you are there’ detail.” If you love Bose speakers and are looking for a home theater upgrade, this is a solid soundbar to consider. — Tucker Bowe
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700
Save $30: You can already score a deal on Bose’s latest and greatest noise-canceling headphones, the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700. Bose and basically every other retailer is selling them for $400, but eBay is selling brand-new models for $30 off. The deal only applies to black models. On the Bose website, meanwhile, the Headphones 700 are now available in white (technically “soapstone”) for full price.
— Tucker Bowe
Anker Charging Accessories
Save Up to 40% Off: Right now, Amazon is having a big sale on a bunch of different charging accessories by Anker. There’s a little bit of everything — from wireless charging pads to charging cables, portable batteries to multi-port wall adapters — and it’s all up to 40-percent off. You can check out the full list of discounted accessories below. — Tucker Bowe
Bose SoundSport Free
Save $80: The Bose SoundSport Free are the company’s first truly wireless earbuds. When they were released around two years ago, the 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) and Bose’s website (here). However, you can currently get a pair of SoundSport Free that have been “factory renewed” on eBay for $120. That’s significantly cheaper than AirPods. — Tucker Bowe |
Bose QuietComfort 30
Save $160: The Bose QuietComfort 30 are the company’s wireless noise-canceling earphones. They’re a great option for anybody that wants noise-canceling in-ear headphones, but it’s worth pointing out that they’ve been around since 2016. Yes, this means that Bose is due to come out with an updated version of the QuietComfort 30 in the near future – it already announced that the Bose Noise Cancelling Earbuds 700, the company’s first true wireless earbuds with active noise-cancellation, would be released sometime in 2020 – but it also means you can find some pretty awesome deals on them if you look hard enough. Case and point, this eBay deal. You can buy a refurbished pair of QuietComfort 30 for $140, which is a great deal considering that both Bose’s website and Amazon are selling new pairs for $300. — Eric Limer
Master & Dynamic MW07 Wireless Earbuds
Save $120: Right now, you can get a pretty awesome deal on some of the prettiest wireless earbuds. That’s because eBay is selling Master & Dynamic’s MW07, the company’s first true wireless earphones, for $179 – that’s $120 off. The MW07 are obviously expensive compared to most other true wireless earbuds, but that’s because, one, they sound better, and two, they’re made of really premium materials: stainless steel and acetate. Make no mistake, these are nice earbuds. The catch with this eBay deal is that Master & Dynamic sells its MW07 earbuds in a number of different colored acetates, but eBay’s discount only applies to the white marble acetate models. — Tucker Bowe |
LG C8 65-Inch OLED TV (2018)
DEAL: LG’s 2018 C8 series of 4K OLED TVs are expensive. When they were released in spring 2018, a 65-inch model was going for $3,500. Over a year later, however, that price has dropped to around $2,597 — that’s over $1,000 off. But today Drop is running a deal on a brand-new C8 for $1,875 – that’s nearly 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. As far as breaking down the television itself — well, it’s fantastic. It boasts phenomenal picture quality and delivers perfect black levels. The design of the TV is beautiful. It supports both Dolby Vision and HDR 10. And it handles motion very well, too, making it ideal for watching sports or action movies. Basically, everything you’d want in a 4K TV, the LG C8 has it. — Tucker Bowe |
Seiko Prospex “Monster” Dive Watch
Save 28%: Right now, Seiko’s newest-generation Prosper “Monster” is on sale for 20% off in two versions: one (SRPD27) with a black dial and Seiko Prospex’s excellent and soft silicone strap, and the other (SRPD25) with a blue dial, black bezel, and steel bracelet. But wait! In an additional promotion, you can take a further 10% off the reduced price by using the promo code “SHINE” at check out. That brings both versions down by around $140 each. — Zen Love

A Man and His Watch Book
Save 33%: If you don’t have a copy of Matt Hranek’s “A Man and His Watch” on your shelf, you are doing yourself a disservice. The book is a compendium of personal stories involving, well, Men and their Watches, and many are downright fascinating (Stallone’s gold Rolex GMT Master, anyone?). This is your chance to pick up a copy on Amazon for 33% off, for a total of just $24. — Oren Hartov
Save 33%: Hear ye, hear ye — a bunch of Seiko watches are on sale! Automatic ones! Diver ones! An all-black one!

Citizen Eco-Drive Military Field Watch
Save 52%: A watch with Citizen’s practical Eco-Drive technology, never needs a battery change since it’s powered by any exposure to light. That makes for a worry-free wearing experience for watches like this military-inspired, field-style watch with compass markings and 100m of water-resistance. At 42mm wide in steel, it promises Citizen’s typical durability and value even at full retail price — but right now at over 50% off at Nordstrom Rack, you can get it for just $120. — Zen Love
Luminox ICE-SAR Arctic 1000
Save 20%: One of our recent Luminox favorites was last year’s ICE-SAR Arctic 1000, made in collaboration with the all-volunteer Icelandic Search and Rescue Service. Available in several dial colors, the Arctic 1000 is crafted from lightweight Carbonox and features a Swiss-made quartz movement, a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, tritium tubes and 200m of water resistance. Right now, you can take 20% off the black dial Arctic 100, dropping the price from an MSRP of $445 down to $356. Not bad for a hard-wearing watch with serious creds that comes with a 2-year warranty from the manufacturer. — Oren Hartov
