Rapha Archive Sale
Save Up To 60%: Among the two-wheeled and well-heeled, Rapha is pretty much the gear and garb go-to. Everything the brand sells has an understated, luxe quality that’s reinforced by careful construction and premium materials. Those factors, combined with plenty of brand hype, can lead to a bit of sticker shock when you go to buy your own Rapha kit.
But thanks to the brand’s ongoing Archive Sale, you can get your hands on past-season garb, accessories and sample gear like the stylish GT shoes, the classically simple Rapha cap and much more, all for much less than MSRP.
Available sizes are limited and the best color options are sure to sell out, so the sooner you can browse the sale yourself, the better. — Andy Frakes
Bonobos Summer Clearance Sale
Take an additional 40% off sale prices: Starting today, you can take an additional 40 percent off sale prices on a wide range of wardrobe staples from the fit-obsessed brand. To take advantage of the deal, all you have to do is enter the code BUCKETS when you check out. — Justin Fenner
Save 41%: In much of the US, summer showers aren’t an everyday occurrence, but when thunderstorms and inclement weather do hit, they bring heavy unpredictable rains. For weather like this, light waterproof jackets and umbrellas are essential, as are a good pair of rain boots. If you’re in need of waterproof footwear, East Dane is currently offering styles from Hunter at much-reduced prices. You can get into a pair of Short Boots of Chelseas for under $100 or pick up a pair of sandals for $60 if you’re so inclined. A range of sizes are still available, so invest now and prepare for whatever the next months have in store. — John Zientek
AGV Sport Sareno Jacket
Save 20%:Adventure motorcycle jackets go for function over form, nine times out of ten. And because they’re one of the more technical pieces of gear you can own, subsequently they also tend to carry a high price tag too. ADV Jackets have to be able to withstand am an incredibly wide range of elements and riding environments while staying comfortable all day long. The AGV Sport Sareno Jacket breaks that expensive-equals-quality mold by being a wickedly versatile jacket yet coming in under around the $200 mark. And today, it’s even more affordable because it’s 20-percent off. — Bryan Campbell
Converse Chuck Taylors
Save 60%:Converse’s Chuck Taylors are perhaps the most iconic sneaker silhouette ever produced — thanks in large part to accessibility and a look that seems to find a new niche to conquer every decade. What started out as the most ubiquitous basketball shoe ever made became punk rock, and later a preppy suburban kid staple. Now, everyone wears Chucks — and today a bunch of them are marked down to $35.
The Converse Chuck 70 Heritage model — of which plenty of sizes in high- and low-top are still available — is an homage to the days when the shoe was a sport sneaker. Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain wore them, as did literally everyone else in that era of basketball. This updated version mimics them aesthetically but adds in an OrthoLite cushion for a bit of comfort.
The Chuck 70s typically run for $80 or more, but today they’re more than 50 percent off. — Will Price
Frye Leather Bags
Save up to 61%: Very few bags are truly all-purpose. While canvas and nylon styles are great for everyday use and more technical applications, they can miss the mark aesthetically in professional situations. If you’re in need of a bag that will compliment your business wardrobe, consider investing in an understated leather bag. Now at Nordstrom Rack, you can save up to 61 percent on a wide range of bags from Frye including backpacks, duffels, messenger bags and more. Prices start at $180, which, though not inexpensive, isn’t a huge price to elevate your professional style. — John Zientek
Save Up to 32% Off: Succulents have two outstanding qualities. They’re low maintenance, so they don’t need a lot of sun or water to thrive. And they’re handsome, able to add color and vigor to an otherwise stale room or workspace. If you’re interested in such a low-maintenance houseplant, Amazon is having a special succulent deal where packs up 4, 12 and 20 succulents are selling for up to 32-percent off. It’s a pretty good deal, especially considering you don’t have to go to a plant shop. These will just show up at your door. — Tucker Bowe | |

Patagonia’s Better Sweater
Save $40: Patagonia’s excellent Better Sweater, which usually retails for around $150, is going for just $109.90 during Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale. And while you might not want to wear it in the middle of summer, you’ll be grateful to have it in your closet (and a little extra money in your pocket) when the mercury does finally start to drop. — Justin Fenner
Denim from Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale
Save 43%: Denim transcended its roots as a workhorse fabric becoming a staple in wardrobes across the world. And, it’s no surprise: the fabric is durable, it only gets more comfortable after years of wear and it fades in patterns unique to the wearer. While pop culture’s association of denim with miners and cowboys is waning, there is no shortage of great garments cut from the fabric. To pick up a few of your favorite denim wardrobe staples, check out Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale where a range of styles are 43 percent off. Pick from shirts, jackets, pants and more, but don’t wait because the sale ends soon. — John Zientek
Instant Pot Luxe
Save 39%:No doubt gearing up for the release of the new Instant Pot Max on August 1st, Instant Pot has been a sales spree as of late.
During Prime Day we saw the Ultra and Duo models both on steep, all-time low discounts, and today the most affordable Instant Pot variant goes even further. The Instant Pot Lux, the original Instant Pot model, is under $50 — a first for any Instant Pot model, ever. The Luxe is the most stripped back of the brand’s soon-to-be five models — featuring only one pressure cooking setting (high). Though, frankly, if you’re getting an instant pot for 45-minute fall-off-the-bone spare ribs, you don’t need more flexibility. The Luxe also features the other staples of all Instant Pots, like a pretty unremarkable sauté function, rice cooker, steamer and a solid slow cook mode. The size that’s on sale, the 6-quart, is large enough to cook for small families.
Hot tip: request to join Instant Pot’s community Facebook page for a small slice of happiness and plenty of recipe fodder. — Will Price
Jabra Elite 65t Wireless Earbuds
Save $71 (58% off): eBay is selling the Jabra Elite 65t wireless earbuds (read our review, here), which are probably the best all-around AirPod alternatives and normally cost $170, for just $99. That’s $71 off. The reason for the deal — and I’m guessing here — is that it’s a clearance sale due to the fact that Jabra recently announced the Jabra Elite Active 65t (read our review, here), which are essentially sweatproof and slightly more expensive versions of the Jabra Elite 65t wireless earbuds. Both use the same app. Both sound great. Both have great battery life, too. — Tucker Bowe

LG G7 ThinQ Smartphone
Save $100: The LG G7 ThinQ has only been available for a few months — we covered the smartphone’s launch event in early May — and today you buy a “factory unlocked” version on Amazon for $650, that’s $100 off what it was first going for. By all accounts, the LG G7 ThinQ is a very good smartphone with a big and bright display and built-in quad-DAC for hi-fi listening. — Tucker Bowe
Allen Edmonds Summer Savings Event
Save $64:According to a New York Times article published in 2011, only one percent of all shoes sold in the United States are actually produced here. Among the distinguished minority, you’ll find the Park Avenue, McAllister and Fifth Avenue oxford dress shoes from Allen Edmonds — all stalwarts in the Wisconsin brand’s legendary, 100-plus-year-old catalog. These classic models normally retail for $425 each but you can shave $64 (more than 15 percent) off retail during the Allen Edmonds Summer Savings Event, happening now. — Jack Seemer
Save 24%:The Roomba is and was so much better than its competitors it became a sort of generic trademark for its entire category of robo-vacuums. There are many models of Roomba — more affordable, less affordable, enormously powerful, sort of weak and so on.
The Roomba 960 falls into the category of enormously powerful and, typically, wholly unaffordable. Recommended as the “Upgrade Pick” by the super-reviewers at Wirecutter, it is heavy enough and totes enough suction to suck up dog hair, dust and whatever other particles float around one level of your home. Its iAdapt 2.0 Navigation program is able to differentiate change in elevation and act accordingly (it rolls up onto tall rugs to clean, but not down stairs) and it’s controllable via app or Alexa voice control.
Today the $700 robot vacuum is marked down 24 percent, good for its lowest price ever. — Will Price
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Leather Boots
Save up to 44%: Well-made leather boots are a footwear option worth investing in. Though initially expensive, the quality materials and manufacturing will stand up to years of use, and offer a great value over time (e.g. a lower cost-per-wear). If you’ve been waiting for a substantial sale to spend on a nice pair of boots, Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is for you. Customers can save up to 44 percent on brands like Red Wing, Allen Edmonds and Wolverine, among others. The sale ends August 5, so if you see a style you like, don’t put off the purchase. — John Zientek

Club Monaco’s Summer Clearance Sale
Save up to 65%: Just in time for the last batch of end-of-summer barbecues comes a deep, deep sale on some of the season’s most stylish shirts. Thanks to Club Monaco’s ongoing sale, you can save up to 65 percent on polos, Hawaiian shirts, camp shirts and more. — Justin Fenner
BlenderBottle Shaker Cups
Save up to 18%: Almost twenty years ago, BlenderBottle introduced a small wire ball that forever changed the way gym-goers prepare their protein shakes. Its next product, a leak-proof, BPA-free bottle known today as the BlenderBottle Classic, then became the stalwart shaker cup of the fitness world.
On Amazon, you can save money on two different BlenderBottle products: the Classic, which comes in a two-pack, and an insulated version called the Radian (18 percent off). — Jack Seemer
The Rolex GMT Master II On StockX
Grab The New GMT Master II At MSRP: Chances are good that unless you have an extremely close relationship with your local AD (authorized dealer), you didn’t have a chance to nab the new Rolex GMT Master II 126710BLRO at MSRP; almost as soon as the watch launched, the watch-buying public seemed to collectively lose their $#!+ at the realization that Rolex was finally putting out a new Pepsi-bezel GMT model in steel. While list price is $9250, these watches are already selling on the secondary market for close to $20k, making an already not-inexpensive watch – how shall we say?- less not-inexpensive.
StockX, the “world’s first stock market for stuff,” is a live bid/ask marketplace for sneakers, streetwear, handbags, and now, for watches, in which you place bids for an item and as soon as an ask meets your bid, the transaction happens automatically. Right now the good folks at StockX are giving one bidder the chance to obtain the new 2018 GMT Master II at MSRP, which has become exceedingly difficult since the watch’s release, as many ADs only receive a limited quality (or one!) watch at a time for sale (we should note that this example is pre-owned, as StockX is a marketplace and not a Rolex AD). Here’s are the rules from StockX:
StockX will be offering one Bidder the opportunity to buy the Rolex GMT-Master II 126710BLRO watch. Bidding will be open from July 26th – 29th, after which StockX will select one bidder to purchase the watch for $9,250. You will not be charged for bidding. Only the selected winner will be charged.
How To Enter:
1. Create an account with StockX on your desktop or mobile device. If you’re going mobile, find the StockX app in the iOS or Google Play store. If you already have an account, make sure your app is updated and jump to step 2.
2. Beginning July 26th, Place a $9,250 Bid on the Rolex GMT-Master II 126710BLRO ReStockX. You won’t be charged unless you win.
3. Earn a bonus entry every time you refer a new friend who also places a bid to win!

Wardrobe Basics at Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale
Save 45%: Basics are the foundation of any wardrobe, and tees, socks, sweatshirts and underwear often get the more wear than many of the other garments in your closet. As such, they should be invested in routinely. Now at Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale, you can save up to 45 percent on a wide range of wardrobe basics from brands like Calvin Klein, Billy Reid and Goodlife, among others. If you see something you like, don’t wait — the sale ends August 5. — John Zientek
Dyson V6 Cordless Vacuum
Save 68%:Dread it, run from it, it doesn’t matter — no matter what you do, there comes a time in every person’s life when the prospect of buying a Dyson vacuum is not only something of interest, but is actually exciting.
The refurbished Dyson V6 Cordless Absolute vacuum is, other than a mouthful, a premium value buy for those on the “is Dyson really worth it?” fence. And this one on eBay is a whopping 68 percent off its usual price. What do all those words in its name mean? Let’s break it down.
Refurbished: Official Dyson refurbs are brought in, tested, tested again and sent out into the world for re-selling. They are marked down significantly compared to their out-of-the-box counterparts, but the brand stands behind its claim that refurbs operate at a comparable level. The only defects, the brand says, should be visual and unimportant to function (scrapes, scratches, etc.).
Dyson V6 Cordless: The V6 was the first heavy-hitting cordless vacuum for Dyson. It packs enough suction to pull tangled up hair (pet or otherwise) from think carpets and rugs and a HEPA filter, which removes allergens from the air in your home. It may technically be two models behind, but we’re talking about vacuums here, not smartphones. The V10 is the newest model and, while extremely powerful, is probably not worth its exorbitant price tag.
Absolute: Dyson V6s come in three package varieties — the baseline, Fluffy and Absolute. The only difference between the packages is the amount of vacuum heads that come with it, with the Absolute having the most and the baseline having the least. Each added head, which pop off and on with a button press and a pull, serves a different purpose. The Absolute package comes with a head for hardwood floors, carpets and rugs, tiny crevices, a dusting brush and more.
The cordless Dyson V6 Absolute is at the lowest price we’ve ever seen it at. — Will Price

Nike Metcon 4 Sale
Save $40: If CrossFit or weight lifting is your workout of choice, the Nike Metcons are commonplace for you. With a tough, grippy sole and solid heel cup, the Nike Metcon 4 is pretty close to perfect. If you’re not in the market for a new pair of Metcons or are looking to update your race day sneakers, we recommend checking out JackRabbit’s 30 percent off Nike sneaker sale. Pick up a pair of Air Zoom Vomeros 13, Zoom Structure 21, Vapormax or the Zoom Fly running shoe. — Meg Lappe
Cheap Outdoor Seating
Save Up to 65%Wayfair is a place for stupidly affordable products from brands you probably haven’t heard of (but not in the cool way). It’s also a place you should probably avoid buying from at retail. Today, cheap products are made cheaper, as up a wealth of outdoor furniture is marked down up to 65 percent.
Do note, we have not tested and cannot vet the quality of the many chaises, sectionals, umbrellas and Adirondacks available. However, if you belong to a way of thinking that reasons your patio furniture needn’t be of the best quality, and that if it’s going to sit in the rain anyway it might as well be of middling quality, this is the sale for you.
Wayfair’s cheap outdoor furniture sale runs now and for the next four days. — Will Price
A.P.C. Standard Jean
Save 35%: French brand A.P.C. is known for producing a range of understated wardrobe classics. After 30 years, the brand’s minimalist take on these garments has garnered a loyal following in Europe and abroad. One of A.P.C.’s quintessential garments is the Standard Jean, a five-pocket high waist style with a straight leg — a timeless silhouette that is flattering on a range of body types. Now at End, you can save 35 percent on the jean in washed Japanese denim. It’s a wash that will transitional nicely from the last hot days of summer to the first cool days of fall, and a great value at this price. — John Zientek
Clarks Bushacre Chukka Boots
Save 51%: Currently, Nordstrom Rack is offering substantial savings on a pair of Clarks desert boots. The timeless style is 51 percent off and costs just $49, a price not rarely seen save major events like Prime Day. You’d be smart to pick up a pair, as the style is versatile, lightweight and appropriate for multiple seasons. The Bushacre Chukka features a beeswax leather upper, a durable rubber sole and a cushioned insole for comfort. Available in sizes 7 to 13, these will sell out quickly at this price, so don’t wait. — John Zientek
Anova Sous Vide
Save 46%mark>Google “best sous vide” and find Anova’s sous vide circulator recommended far and wide.
It’s easier to use than its best competition, the ChefSteps Joule, and boasts more power, which allows it to reach temperature moderately faster. Its biggest differentiating point, though, is the ability to control it manually — by clicking buttons on the actual machine — and via a powerful app. The Joule, though I believe its app to be more robust, is only manageable through said app.
Anova’s sous vide tool retails at $150, but is marked down to $80 today. A savings of 46 percent, good for its cheapest price ever. — Will Price
Mophie Powerstation Plus Portable Battery w/ Lightning Connector
Save $86: Especially if you have an older iPhone, because its battery is likely terrible, carrying a separate portable power bank is almost a must. This one by Mophie is perfect. It’s tiny, small enough to fit in your pocket. It has an integrated Lightning cord, so you don’t need to bring your own. And it’s dirt cheap, as low as $14 today. — Tucker Bowe
