Benefit Cosmetics’ They’re Real Mascara was my first foray into non-drugstore mascara (though, I do still love me some) and it’s still a solid standby. Right now, you can pick up your own tube for $15, which is much closer to a drugstore number than its normal price.
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:
- Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette
- BECCA Cosmetics Light Chaser Highlighter
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Palette
- BECCA Cosmetics Liquid Crystal Glow Gloss
- Lancôme Grandiôse Wide-Angle Fan Effect Mascara
- Lancôme Grandiôse Extreme Wide-Angle Extreme Volume Mascara
- Lancôme Grandiôse Waterproof Mascara
The Big Sales
Winter is (slowly) approaching, so if you still haven’t checked to see if your coats from last year survived shoved into the back of a storage closet, now’s the chance. Target is taking 50% off all their outerwear, including faux fur, down, and more. Kids and adults are included in the sale, but it’s today only, so you shouldn’t wait.
Plus, there’s 50% off winter accessories like gloves and scarves as well, so you can bundle up without spending...a bundle.
Uniqlo’s hopping on the Daily Deals bandwagon, and today it’s Extra Warm HEATTECH for $15. Tops and bottoms are marked down, so you can basically get an entire base layer for $30.
$20 PJ pants? $20 PJ pants! Plush joggers and leggings, and some yoga pants, are all discounted 50% at American Eagle right now, bringing them down to a much better price for something you’ll probably take off in the middle of the night because you’re too hot.
Now is the time to get the hell outside, mainly because the weather is mild, but also because our president is hellbent on getting rid of public lands and you may not be able to hike anywhere by next year. So, REI is helping you get outside with an extra 25% off all their sale items, no code needed.
Calenders are really underrated holiday gifts. ThinkGeek is taking up to 33% off (yeah, idk) a ton of great ones, like Super Mario Bros., Bob Ross, Star Trek, and more. Most of them come in at the $10 mark, which makes them ideal for stocking stuffers or Secret Santa gifts.
If your board game collection is gathering dust, it’s time to freshen up your options with Amazon’s one-day Gold Box deal.
Over 50 games are available, including popular titles like Ticket to Ride, Patchwork, Dead of Winter Crossroads, and Lost Cities, just to name a few. Just note that like all Gold Box deals, these prices are only available today, and the best stuff will likely sell out early, so don’t roll the dice by waiting.
For a limited time, Dyson’s eBay outlet is taking an extra 20% off any $25 order (maximum $50 discount) with promo code PHOLIDAY20, including vacuums, fans, and even hair dryers. They sell a lot of new stuff on eBay, but the best deals are on the refurbs. Either way, they’re sold directly by Dyson; this isn’t a sketchy third party situation.
My pick is the refurbished V6 Motorhead for $176. I bought the V6 Animal a months ago, and it makes quick work of all the pet hair on our furniture.
That same PHOLIDAY20 code will work with a number of other (admittedly less exciting) sellers as well, including Klymit, KitchenAid, Worx, and more, so check out the full list on this page.
If you’ve always wanted a ping pong table, today’s the day to get one, as several different models are on sale on Amazon, along with all the accessories you need.
We’ve seen some deals in the past on Uber gift cards, but if you prefer to spend your money with the somewhat-less-evil Lyft, you can score a $50 card for just $45 right now from Amazon with promo code LYFT5. Even if you don’t use it yourself, this would make a nice gift.
If there are any new parents on your holiday shopping list this year, several classic children’s books are on sale for all-time low prices right now, plus Prime shipping.

Victorinox’s Fibrox 8” chef’s knife is one of your favorite chef’s knives period, and by far the best value in the industry. It’s also the knife I’ve used almost every day for almost five years. Amazon has it for $31 right now, which is an absolute steal for the quality you’re getting.
You can also get a four-knife Fibrox set for $104, if you want to upgrade your entire collection.
You can never have enough USB chargers, and a couple from Aukey are deeply discounted today.
The more interesting of the two is this 46W USB-C Power Delivery charger for $28. That sits in-between the 29W charger that Apple ships with 12" MacBooks, and the 61W model that comes with the 13" MacBook Pro, but it’s of course far cheaper than both. It also has a standard USB port, so you can charge your phone while your laptop or Nintendo Switch occupies the high power port.
For $12, you can also pick up a four-port charger that’s great for travel. It only packs in 24W of total power, so if you plug something into every port, it’s going to be fairly slow, but it would still be great for overnight gadget charging.
