This month’s box has a travel-ready box that’s perfect for tossing in your bag on your way to enjoy the last few weekends of summer, plus a $3 off coupon for any $15+ beauty purchase. The products this month are:

Summer is settling down (sort of)a, and if you’ve been putting off going to the gym because the weather’s bad, it’s time to give up. PUMA is having a massive Private Sale with up to 75% off over 1,800 items, full of athleisure and sneakers. Let’s just say your wardrobe will look like it’s ready to hit the gym, even if you aren’t.

Yes, it’s brutally hot and uncomfortable outside. I’d guess that this image is making you sweat just looking at it. But if you want to get your winter layers figured out, Uniqlo is marking down their Ultra Light down vest to just $40, for men and women. This thing is breathable, packable, and water-repelling, so it’s a really great utilitarian piece to have around.

eBay’s back at it again today with another sitewide sale, this time taking 15% off almost any $25+ order, with a maximum savings of $100. Just use promo code PRONTO15 at checkout to get the deal, which expires at 10PM ET tonight.

My mind immediately goes to Dyson’s eBay storefront, which offers great deals on vacuums, fans, and more, even without factoring in the savings. For example, a refurbished V8 Animal is a hell of a cordless vacuum for $238, or if you’re looking for an upright, try the filter-free Dyson Cinetic Animal + Allergyfor $195.

As always, another good place to start is Best Buy’s eBay storefront, which carries a ton of video games and rarely-discounted tech items that are eligible for the savings.

These sales are consistently great if you’re in the market for a game console. Here’s an Xbox One X PUBG bundle with a bonus copy of Assassin’s Creed Origins for $400 with code PRONTO15. Nintendo Switch prices on eBay are slightly elevated, but the code will still knock it down to $263 via Newegg (in Gray or Neon). And while the code doesn’t work on gift cards, but you can use it on PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Gold memberships.

The code works on everything from major sellers to individual auctions, so if you’ve had something on your wishlist, just search for it - the code should work on just about anything.

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 having a huge Summer Sale. That means 25-40% off their best sellers, plus 50-70% off sale items.

Coffee Gator’s popular coffee accessories are getting in on the Gold Box fun today, with savings available on airtight containers, pour-over makers, kettles, and more. Chances are, there’s something in here to fit your kitchen’s decor. These prices will be gone by the end of the day, so don’t sleep on them.

Coffee Gator actually ran a Prime Day deal last month too, but the selection today is actually larger, and notably, includes a lot of travel mugs that weren’t present the first time around.

Everyone’s making hybrid foam mattresses now, even legacy brands like Sealy, and Walmart’s blowing out their Optimum Posturepedic mattresses for crazy-low prices, while supplies last.

The only sizes available are Twin XL, Queen, and King ($290, $340, $490, respectively), but if those fit your needs for your own bed, or even for a guest room, these prices are way less than you’d pay at Amazon.

At just $75 today, today’s price we’ve seen on the Thermapen Mk4. You guys love it because it displays the temperature in 2 - 3 seconds, has a 3,000 hour battery life, is waterproof, and accurate within 0.7°F.

Here are just a few people gushing over it:

Thermapen Classic (or really any of the Thermapens). Bar none the best thermometer for cooking I have ever bought — accept no substitutes.

Somewhat expensive at ~$70-$120 range, but I’ve been using mine for years and years, and it still gives me an accurate reading in less than three seconds. Well, well worth the price. Especially excellent for the grill. - theburners

Without a doubt. No other thermometer comes close. I’ve said it before on Kinja that the Thermapen is the best piece of kitchen equipment I’ve ever bought. - the-return-of-samba00

We typically see only $15 off, and it usually is limited to one or two colors. So if you’ve been holding off buying one of these, today’s sale should help you pull the trigger.

It’s certainly not the prettiest laptop out there, but $1,000 is a solid deal for this HP EliteBook, which is specced out with a Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD. This Gold Box deal is only available today though, and could sell out early.
