Right now, grab 20% off the entire Kate Somerville site with the code 20FF17 for the Friends & Family sale. Pick up some really great skin care for a lot less than you would pay at Sephora or elsewhere.
The Big Sales
Amazon recently launched their Unique Finds section, which contain hand-picked and curated items across a ton of categories, like home goods, gadgets, apparel, and more. And now, Prime Members can grab a discount of 15% or more a select few brands. This month, they’re featuring jewelry brands Slipada and La Regis Jewelry, handboard-maker Slyde, phone accessory company Mengo, and home goods brands Avvio and Willow & Everett.
Free People has finally grown up out of their exclusively hippy-dippy, oversized style, though this sale at Nordstrom Rack still has some of that lingering like the smell of patchouli. But with six pages of apparel and almost 70 pairs of shoes, this sale is worth digging around in.
It’s time to start planning your outdoor adventures, and Backcountry is gonna help you out in the gear department. Take advantage of an extra 20% off select styles. Gear, apparel, shoes, and more are all fair game, which means outfitting for your next outdoor adventure just costs you a whole lot less.
ThinkGeek is helping the nerds in your life get ready for back-to-school. Score up to 80% off of a ton of products and apparel during their Fall Blowout Clearance. There are seriously hundreds of items to choose from, which means every corner of geekdom is covered by this sale.
If your spring cleaning doesn’t involve revamping your home goods, what are you even doing? Add some awesome infographics to your walls with these $10 prints from Pop Chart Lab. Choose from five prints (A Visual Compendium of Hockey Jerseys, The Charted Sandwich Board, A Schematic of Structures, A Visual Compendium of Typewriters, and Exceptional Expressions of Espresso) and enter the code $10PRINTS at checkout.
You’ll have to find a way to display them, though, as the poster rails and framing aren’t included.
Update 9/18: Today’s the last day of this sale, so don’t miss your chance.
If you’ve been itching to get an Amazon Echo (and you really should get one), but balk at the $180 price tag, Amazon’s offering up certified refurbs for $80 right now, by far the best price we’ve ever seen.
Amazon’s certified refurbished products are all inspected and tested to work like new, and include the same one-year warranty you’d get with a brand new product, so there’s really no downside to going this route.
Anker makes smart light bulbs now, because of course they do, and today’s your first chance to get them at a discount.
While both bulbs can be dimmed with your smartphone (even if your lamp doesn’t have a dimmer), the tunable bulb can output just about any shade 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 either of these bulbs with your smartphone via the free Eufy Home app, but the real fun is controlling them with your voice via Alexa. Any Alexa-enabled device can do this, but we happen to have an exclusive discount on the Eufy Genie, which is very similar to an Echo Dot, only cheaper. Just use code KINJA000 at checkout to get it for $30.
One of life’s cruelest jokes is that as a kid, you’d probably give your left arm to have a motorized, ridable toy car. But by the time you’re old and decripit and have enough money to buy one, you’re too big to fit inside, if not any less interested.
But you can still make some kid’s birthday or holiday this year with Amazon’s Power Wheels Gold Box, with motorized options starting at $140.
Sometimes, all you need to forget your troubles is the Wu Tang Clan and a trampoline. The Leftovers fans know what I’m talking about.
Several single person trampolines are on sale in today’s Gold Box, and they all seem to use bungee cords rather than the metal springs they had when I was a kid, which is kind of horrifying, in hindsight.
Before you work yourselves into a froth and unleash fury upon me in the comments, let me make one thing clear: I know bacon isn’t meant to be cooked in the microwave. An oven will do a better job, or a skillet, or hell, even a machine gun. That being said, some mornings you just want some damn bacon, and you don’t have time to cook it properly.
The Prep Solutions microwave bacon grill can nuke 7-9 strips at once, and its design allows the grease to drain off, ostensibly leaving you with something resembling crispiness. It’s down to an all-time low $10 right now (albeit as an add-on item), and has a surprisingly great review average, so it might be worth trying out.
You don’t need to pay Apple $160 to enjoy truly wireless earbuds: These SoundPEATS look nearly identical to the AXGIO earbuds that I tried out last year, but with updated Bluetooth tech (4.2 vs. 4.1) and a lower price tag. They’re not as sleek as some other truly wireless headphones on the market like AirPods or the Bragi Dash, but you can’t beat that price.
