Hoka One One Clifton 5 Knit
Save 26%: If you need an intro to one of running’s more unique brands, Hoka One One, start with its best-selling Clifton, which is currently 26 percent off. The Clifton is a prime example of Hoka. It’s lighter than its full EVA midsole makes it look — 9.4 ounces if you’re counting — and has a gently rockered bottom that helps roll the foot through a stride. The discounted model comes with a close-fitting knit upper that only increases what Hokas might be best known for: comfort.

Bose SoundTouch 300 Soundbar
Save $300: 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 Amazon has dropped its price to $399. It’s the lowest price we’ve seen it for yet, and a great deal.

Succulents
Save up to 25%: As odd as buying houseplants off Amazon feels, it’s become a premier destination for simple, affordable greenery. And as is Amazon’s way, things go on sale. They go on sale a lot. Take today, for instance, which presents savings of 20 percent on succulents, the easy-to-care-for, idiot-proof plant to keep on your desk or on the window sill. Succulents are small plants with fleshy, water-rich leaves and stems that require moderate to direct sunlight and watering once a week (except in the winter, when they don’t want your help at all).
