The Big Sales
If reliability is something you crave in a pair of shoes (if it isn’t, you may need to reconsider), I bet you have Cole Haan in your closet. And if you’re looking for a new pair but don’t want to spend the normal asking price, Cole Haan is giving you an extra 40% off sale styles with the code SAVE40. Men’s and women’sstyles both are included, so go ahead and have a field day.
There must be something in the air, because J.Crew Factory has had major discounts lately. Use the code DRESSUP and take an extra 40% off all clearance items, which is insane seeing as practically everything is already marked down under $100. Maybe hold off on cleaning out your closet until after this sale is over.
It shouldn’t be a surprise that Banana Republic, Old Navy, and GAP are in cahoots when it comes to sales; they are owned by the same company, after all. But with 40% off coming from all three retailers when you use the code STYLE, maybe you get a whole new wardrobe by the end of summer.
Current/Elliott is a denim brand you see everywhere, but the price is just a little too much. Right now at Nordstrom Rack, not only is there a Current/Elliott sale, but Joie, purveyor of all things soft and comfy, is also marked down. So you’ll be able to get an entire outfit for the price of one, non-marked down pair of Current/Elliott jeans. Plus, Joie shoes are also on sale.
The holidays are coming soon, and with them, extended family time. So you could all sit in a circle on your phones with a football game blaring in the background, or you could pick out some board games or puzzles from today’s Amazon Gold Box, and enjoy those together instead (probably with football still blaring in the background).
This sale is definitely geared towards family-friendly games, so you won’t find your favorite obscure German board game with a complex in-game economy and an instruction book the size of an Agatha Christie novel in here. But Operation is fun as hell, and I wouldn’t mind playing Mouse Trap again. There are dozens of other options available too, so head over to Amazon to see the full list.
The AmazonBasics 24" hardside spinner just got its first discount ever, down to $63 from its usual (and still insanely affordable) $70. This thing’s too big to use as a carry-on, but it’s a good size for a checked bag if you value maneuverability. It also has good organizational tools inside, and it carries a stellar review average, especially considering its rock-bottom price.
Just because it’s getting colder out doesn’t mean you have to batten down the hatches and abandon your patio: With these discounted gas heaters, you can enjoy your outdoor space all year round.
Amazon’s deeply discounting a couple of AZ patio heaters in today’s Gold Box, plus a cover for $13 if you need it. Other than the finish, the two models are identical, so you’ll be paying extra if you want hammered bronze. Just remember that these prices are only available today, so get yours before the deal burn out.
You’re probably familiar with the color-changing Hue lights that screw into your existing lamps and light fixtures, but if you really want to paint your rooms with color, you’ll want to pick up a few Hue Bloom accent lights as well.
These lights used to sell for around $80, and today’s
$45 $37 deal on Amazon is the best we’ve ever seen. If you’re already invested in the Hue ecosystem, you should absolutely pick up at least one.
If you want to take your Hue ecosystem on the go, the Hue Go is similar to the Bloom, except that it’s significantly brighter, and can run off a battery for up to three hours at a time, making it perfect for backyard parties. $60 is one of the best deals we’ve ever seen on it.
It’s not the best deal we’ve ever seen, nor is it likely to be as good as what we’ll get on Black Friday, but if you’re in the market for an Echo Dot, Amazon’s marked them down to $40 today.
Smart plugs are the gateway drug to home automation, and TP-Link’s model with energy monitoring is down to $30 right now, about $5-$10 less than usual. This thing adds smartphone and Alexa control to any power outlet, and unlike some less expensive models, it’ll also tell you how much electricity is running through it so you can identify what’s running up your power bill.
This rechargeable hand warmer is like a Swiss Army knife for 21st-century winter. Not only does it warm your hands, it serves as a 6000mAh power bank and a LED flashlight. It’s just $15 today with code ZCL23YL5, so throw out those warming powder packets that don’t charge your phone at all.
This bulb can’t display the full RGB spectrum like a Philips Hue lamp, but it can hit any flavor of white from sunlight-simulating daylight to Edison-style warm white. It sounds like a small thing, but different shades of light can seriously boost your productivity, or help you relax when it’s almost time for bed.
You can control the bulbs with your smartphone via the free Eufy Home app, but the real fun is hooking them up to Alexa. Any Alexa-enabled device can do this, including the Echo Dot, which happens to be on sale today.
