Until relatively recently, USB-powered portable hard drives topped out at 2TB, but today on Amazon, you can get a 3TB WD My Passport Ultra for $100, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen. Whether you’re storing photos, movies, or even entire games on your Xbox, the WD My Passport Ultra is one of the most popular drives on the market.

If you’re serious about photography, the full-frame Sony A7s II needs no introduction. If you aren’t serious about photography, you can go ahead and skip this blurb.

The powerful camera body has never seen significant cash discounts, but today, you can at least get a $300 Amazon gift card when you buy it. I suggest putting it towards extra lenses.

Beats sound quality has come a long way in recent years, and the new Powerbeats 3 even include Apple’s easy-pairing W1 chip, making them a great option for iPhone-owning fitness buffs, or anyone whose ears aren’t compatible with AirPods. They’re still only a few months old, but for a limited time, Amazon’s taking $50 off.

If your new year’s resolution is to get in better shape (I’m being rhetorical here; everyone’s resolution is to get in better shape), this discounted elliptical means you might actually do it. If you’ve got the space for it, $475's a steal.

The entry-level Philips HF3500 is currently marked down to $58, down from its usual $70 (though not an all-time low). While there are higher end models with color-shifting light and multiple wake-up sounds, I’ve been a satisfied user of this model for two years, and can’t recommend it highly enough.

I swear, in a few years AmazonBasics will be making electric cars and pre-fab houses. In the meantime, they’ve started producing pop-up canopy tents, and you can pick one up for an all-time low $73 today, roughly $20-$30 less than you’d expect to pay for other brands.

You need to buy detergent, paper towels, and toilet paper anyway, so you may as well save $15 on it. Just spend $50 on select brands from Target, and use code CLEAN at checkout to get the discount.

Breville’s reader-favorite Smart Ovens almost never go on sale, but Amazon’s offering rare discounts today on two different models today, including an all-time low price on the Mini.

Update: The Mini deal is over, but the larger model is still available.

Unless you happen to own some other beautiful Breville products we recommend, it’ll almost certainly be the best-looking appliance in your kitchen. I got one of these as a wedding gift several months ago, and it’s every bit as good as advertised.

The Mini is just $100, down from its usual $150, and the 800XL is also $50 off, down to $200. If you got some Amazon gift cards for the holidays, I can’t think of many more worthwhile things to spend them on.

iTunes gift card discounts are noticeably less common than they used to be, and while we do see 20% discounts from time to time, a $50 iTunes gift card for $43, is still a solid deal if you pay for apps, movies, Apple Music, iCloud storage, or Mario Run unlocks. Of course, it would also make a great gift for the iPhone user in your life.
