Update: Sold out

Life’s too short to vacuum every other day, but luckily, you can pawn that tedious chore off to a Roomba, and the excellent 770 model is marked down to $360 today on Amazon, the best price they’ve ever listed.

I got this exact model about half a year ago, and I absolutely love it. While it does require a bit of babysitting from time to time, I hardly ever need to pull out my upright vacuum, and yet the floors always feel clean.

If Labor Day to you is about shopping the huge apparel and lifestyle sales, you’ve come to the right place. Sales from Uniqlo, Nordstrom Rack, Indochino, and more are happening right this very second. Head over to our Labor Day roundup to see all of the deals, and keep checking back throughout the long weekend.

Vizio’s 2016 M-series TVs include basically every feature you could possibly want, including 4K resolution, Dolby Vision HDR (the good one), Google Cast, local dimming, and even a tablet remote. Do I have your attention? Best Buy’s discounting a pair of them today, and though neither deal is as good as the $619 55" we saw last week, they’re still solid discounts if you need a new TV for football season.

This discounted AmazonBasics bag can hold a DSLR body, three lenses and some accessories, all for the paltry sum of $21. It even has a dedicated tablet slot which will fit <gasp> a Kindle Fire.

We see deals on smartphone dry bags almost every day, but not many of them float if you drop them in the water, and even fewer include an armband and headphone jack. That means that even once beach season is behind us, this Vansky model will be great for exercise.

If you’ve ever spent more than 5 seconds sorting through your mismatched food containers to find the right lid, it’s time to throw them all out and upgrade to this Rubbermaid’s Easy Find Lid system. These containers come in six different sizes, and yet you only have to deal with three different lids, making it much easier to find the right one.

For a limited time, eBay is offering up a $5 discount when you spend $50 on select gift cards. You can mix or match small denominations from hundreds of stores, including places you’ll probably shop at anyway like Best Buy, Google Play, iTunes, GameStop, and Lowe’s. Just add at least $50 to your cart, and you’ll see the discount automatically at checkout.

Like the idea of a Belkin WeMo Switch, but not willing to spend $40-$50 to try one out? This TP-Link alternative has a nearly identical feature set for half the price.

Just like a WeMo switch, TP-Link’s Smart Plug will let you turn appliances on and off from your smartphone, and set schedules to toggle them automatically. The only major feature it’s lacking is IFTTT support, but it will integrate with an Amazon Echo for voice control.

American Tourister luggage isn’t the best stuff you can buy, but if you don’t travel all that frequently, it should get the job done. BuyDig’s currently taking $50 off 21" carry-ons, plus 25" and 29" checked rollers with promo code TRAVEL50, bringing them all down to $49-$69, in the color of your choice. That’s less than an overweight baggage fee.

It’s a Labor Day miracle. After a few months of sticking to their $5 flat rate shipping, Uniqlo has finally brought back free shipping. Plus, in honor not only of the holiday, but of the reopening of their SoHo flagship and celebrating their Tokyo roots with “A New Tokyo in SoHo” there are some incredible deals for both men and women, most under $10.

You know when you ask someone to take a picture of you and your family on vacation, and you quickly learn that almost nobody understands how to take a decent photo? With a mini tripod, you can be in total control of those long range selfies, and this $10 model from Aukey works with everything from DSLRs to smartphones.

Pair it with these smartphone camera lens attachments for even more shooting options.

Need some entertainment options for you long weekend? Amazon’s offering up nearly 200 HD movie rentals for just $1 right now. As with all Amazon video rentals, you’ll have 30 days to start watching, and then 48 hours to finish.

There’s a lot to sort through here, so drop your suggestions (with links) into the comments. My pick: Warm Bodies, which had no right to be as good as it was.

We shared the first deal on these Rubbermaid FreshWorks containers a few weeks ago, and on several occasions since, and you guys have bought thousands of them, to the point that Amazon has often killed the deal within hours of our posting it. So if you’ve missed out on Amazon’s previous deals, or loved yours so much that you want to buy more, the two-pack is back on sale for $17 today, down from $20.

So, what’s the big deal? First, each FreshWorks product includes a “crisp tray” which elevates your produce off the bottom of the container, giving moisture a place to drip, and air enough room to flow. Second and most importantly, the lids feature special filters that regulate the flow of oxygen and CO2 into and out of the containers. All told, Rubbermaid claims keeps food fresh up to 80% longer than store packaging.

It may sounds too good to be true, but customer reviews are fantastic, and Amazon’s offering a 2-piece set for $17 today, down from their usual $20. If they save just a few batches of arugula or scoops of blueberries that you would have otherwise thrown out, they’ll have already paid for themselves.
