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

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

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
