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!

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
