Amope Pedi Perfect Electronic Foot File | $20 | Amazon | Use $5 off coupon

The Amopé is an electric foot file that literally files down the gross calluses on your feet until they slightly resemble that of a modern human. The original Amopé Pedi Perfect is on sale for $25, but clip the $5 coupon and it gets knocked down to just $20. Pick one up and start taking better care of your treads.

Sephora isn’t known for their discounts and deals like other retailers, but they’re trying something new this year with their Weekly Wow deals. Every Thursday, Sephora will drop a bunch of deals and offers for one week only. This week features:

The Big Sales

Ultra Warm HEATTECH | $20 | Uniqlo

Uniqlo HEATTECH is something we all know and love once the weather dips below like, 30 degrees. But the retailer created two more levels of warm, with Extra Warm and Ultra Warm, and the latter is getting its first discount. Pick up a pair of leggings or a long-sleeve Ultra Warm HEATTECH, for both men and women, for just $20 each. Seeing as it’s 2x as warm as normal HEATTECH, maybe you’ll want to get two.

The perfect sale for the Star Wars fan on your list has arrived from a galaxy far, far away.. ThinkGeek is taking up to 70% off over 120 items, including that Sphero BB-8 that everyone knows and loves (and the R2-D2 counterpart). Apparel, home goods (like tiki cups or a french press), toys, and so much more are on sale, so change your plans of going to Tosche Station to pick up some power converters and get to spending your portions dollars.

SPANX sale at Nordstrom Rack

What Band-aid is to adhesive bandages, SPANX is to shapewear. Nordstrom Rack’s SPANX sale is full of all kinds (if you feel like you want some), from strapless slips to bike shorts. They even had some really great leggings/jeggings, tights, and bras.

50% off outerwear | American Eagle

Get ready for it to get cold. American Eagle wants to make sure your outerwear is the best it can be with 50% off basically every coat the carry, no code needed. Or, if you don’t need outerwear but want to up your layering game, there’s 40% off basically everything else in the store, including Aerie’s collection.

Diane von Furstenberg sale at Nordstrom Rack

While Diane von Furstenberg may be known for her iconic wrap dress designs, the Belgian-born designer has many more tricks up her sleeve. Prices are a little scary, but if you want to splurge on the perfect holiday dress or need something really killer for your next wedding attendance, Nordstrom Rack is marking down a bunch of DVF styles for the next three days.

It’s as good a time as any to stock up on new workout clothes with PUMA’s Friends & Family Sale.

And, if you’re part of their rewards program, get free expedited shipping on the over 70,000 items on sale.

Refurb Dyson V6 Motorhead | $184 | Amazon

Dyson dominated the nominations in our favorite vacuum Co-Op, and you can pick up a Dyson V6 Motorhead from Amazon’s Gold Box for $184.


I got the Animal version of this vacuum a few months ago, and it’s seriously life changing. I use it for floors, for my furniture, and even just for dusting. You’d be hard pressed to find any Dyson vacuum for under $200, let alone a battery-powered one, so I’d take advantage of this deal before they’re all cleaned out.

We’ve almost made it through another year, folks. It hasn’t always been easy, but our reward now stands before us - heated blanket season. If you don’t own one of mankind’s greatest creations, Sunbeam’s heated throws are down to just $39-$40 today on Amazon (depending on the color), an all-time low, and $10-$20 less than usual.


In addition to just sitting under one of these on the couch all day, which is a perfectly valid use for them, you can also put them under your bedspread and turn them on a few minutes before getting into bed for the night. It’ll warm up your sheets so getting into bed during the winter doesn’t feel like diving into a cold pool.

Ghost Paper Notebook | $20 | Amazon | Promo code 121KINJA

Even (or perhaps, especially) in the age of laptops and tablets, many people prefer the tactile experience of jotting down notes with an actual pen and paper, and the most tactile experience of all comes from the Ghost Paper Notebook.

Rather than simply printing lines on the sheet to keep your letters straight, Ghost Paper’s lines are very slightly embossed, giving your pen an actual base from which to start each character. Shane tried one of these out earlier this year and loved it, and you can get your own notebook for $5 off today with promo code 121KINJA.


Oontz Angle 3 Ultra | $35 | Amazon

Cambridge SoundWorks’ OontZ Angle is one of our readers’ favorite water-resistant Bluetooth speakers, but today, its new ULTRA model is on sale for an all-time low $35.

Compared to the original, the Angle 3 Ultra is louder (14W vs. 10W), more water resistant (IPX6 vs. IPX5), and can pair with a second Angle 3 Ultra for true stereo sound, all good things. This has been selling for $50 since its release back in October, and today’s deal is the first discount we’ve seen.

You’ll need a receiver to power them, and they aren’t wireless, but still, $85 is an insane price for a complete 5.1 channel speaker system from Yamaha. These have been around for a long time (which might be why their product photo is the size of a postage stamp), but they’ve sold almost exclusively for $150 all year until today.

You don’t need to sell a kidney to afford noise-canceling Bluetooth headphones; these top-selling Cowin E-7s are just $39 right now, or $31 off with promo code CBdeal11. Are they as good as Sony’s noise-canceling headphones? No, of course not, but they boast 30 hours of battery, and offer solid value for anyone on a budget.

iClever BoostCube+ 40W 4-Port USB Charger | $15 | Amazon | Promo code ICICWC40

It might seem crazy to you or me, but a lot of people charge their gadgets exclusively with the chargers that they came with. If they need to bring a phone, a tablet, and a Kindle on vacation, they’ll pack three separate USB wall chargers to power them.


If you know anyone like this, do them a favor this holiday season and buy them a travel-friendly four-port charger for just $15. It’ll probably be the most useful gift they receive this year.

Luminoodle White Bias Lights | $7-$14 | Amazon | Promo code NZ6Y8AN2

HDTV bias lights are nothing new to our readers, but Luminoodle’s are some of the most highly-rated out there, and you can save 30% on the white models today on Amazon.

For a limited time, you can choose from all three lengths (there’s a guide to help you pick on the product page, but you can trim them every two inches to get the right fit) for 30% off with promo code NZ6Y8AN2. If you aren’t familiar, these ease eyestrain when watching TV at night, improve your TV’s perceived contrast, and just look really cool. Needless to say, this would make for a creative holiday gift as well.
