Black Diamond Spot 325 Headlamp
Save 25%: Black Diamond updated the Spot last year to the Spot 325 — it’s smaller, brighter and has a second button that makes for improved operation. The only element of the headlamp not to see an uplift is its price; the Spot 325 still costs just $40. Right now, however, it’s even cheaper than that. Thanks to a sale at REI, you can snag this camping essential for just $30.

Astell & Kern ACRO L1000
The Astell & Kern ACRO L1000 is an all-in-one desktop amplifier, headphone amp and DAC that’s made almost completely out of aluminum — it’s beautiful. Not only is it a hi-fi lover’s dream (capable of playing hi-res audio files up to 32bit/384kHz without downsampling, and it supports native DSD playback), but it’s got one of the biggest, boldest and most satisfying volume knobs we’ve ever felt. The ACRO L1000 normally costs $899, but the discount code knocks well over $200 off that. It’s still expensive, for sure, but it’s the best deal on this gorgeous amp that we’ve ever seen. Just make sure to use the code “MEMDAY” at checkout.
UE Megaboom 3
Save $80: The Megaboom 3 is one of Ultimate Ear’s biggest and best portable speakers. Normally $200, you can buy the Megaboom 3 for $120 on Amazon right now in either black or blue colors. It’s the cheapest that Megaboom 3 has ever been. (Not to mention, it’s the same price that Amazon is currently selling the smaller Boom 3 for.)
