Oliver Peoples Sunglasses
Save up to 77%:Founded in 1987, Los Angeles-based eyewear brand Oliver Peoples made a name for itself producing tasteful and refined sunglasses.

Chef’sChoice Knife Sharpener
Save $40 In the world of electric knife sharpeners, Chef’sChoice (no space) is the only name you need to know. Unlike companies with hundreds of products in dozens of product categories, since its 1985 founding Chef’sChoice has been almost exclusively focused on the knife sharpener. Its products are heralded by the gear testing savants at Cook’s Illustrated and Wirecutter, but typically come with a large caveat — price.
Today on Amazon, the Chef’sChoice 120 is marked down 31 percent — good for $40 off and its lowest price ever. Happy sharpening. —Will Price
Save $40 When arranged thoughtfully and outfitted appropriately, a home gym can be an entirely capable alternative to a pricey gym membership. It doesn’t have to call for heavy and bulky (not to mention expensive) equipment, either. TRX’s original suspension trainer was created with this type of functional minimalism in mind — it was invented by a Navy SEAL squadron commander named Randy Hetrick who was searching for a way to stay fit during deployment.
Hetrick’s original version was made of a jiu-jitsu belt and parachute webbing, but the design has since been refined. The system sets up virtually anywhere, and one size is suitable for upper body, lower body and core workouts. It comes with a mesh bag for storage and travel and includes workout primers developed by professional trainers.
Like an as-seen-on-TV contraption, it can be adapted to various workouts and targeted exercises. Unlike that hulking machine, it can be bought in fewer than 12 installments, especially now that it’s over 26 percent off — a savings of $40 — at Huckberry. — Tanner Bowden
