New & Noteworthy Releases
Today’s Best Deals
Reebok Crossfit Nano 7
Save $70: Out with the old and in with the new. The recent launch of Reebok’s Nano 8 means the 7 is fair game for a sale. Since the Nano first launched in 2011, it’s quickly become a favorite for CrossFit athletes and gym-goers alike. Today, both the Nano 7 and the Nano 7 Weave (with an upgraded mesh upper to keep feet fresh) are on sale for an additional 40% off. Use code FRIEND at check out. There aren’t many sizes left in the weave, so act fast. — Meg Lappe |
Levi’s Flash Sale
Save an extra 40%: Now’s the time to stock up on a range of wardrobe basics. For a limited time, you can save an additional 40 percent on sale items at Levi’s. Look for jeans, tees and outerwear with prices starting at $6 — you’ll spend less on an outfit than you will on lunch. — John Zientek
Victorinox Swiss Army Spartan PS Pocket Knife
Save $40: Boost your EDC with this Victorinox Swiss Army Spartan PS pocket knife complete with a wire stripper and corkscrew. A Polispectral finish on the stainless steel construction gives the multitool a mirror-smooth finish, which looks cool, and the 12 functions are an upgrade to the seven on the original. It’s about an ounce and a half heavier, but your back pocket should be able to handle it. Get one today for $40 off. — Meg Lappe
Amazon Fire TV Stick and 4k Fire TV Stick
Save Up To $25: Amazon is offering both of their streaming media-player USB sticks at significant savings right now, so long as you’re a Prime Member. The standard HD Fire TV Stick is down to $24.99 (from $39.99) and the 4K Ultra HD Fire TV stick can be had for $44.99 (normally $69.99). Basically, if you ever stream anything on your TV, these things are a great buy. They work perfectly and seamlessly, and if you don’t own a smart TV already, you’ll feel like some sort of futuristic sci-fi space captain in an instant. My recommendation: don’t wait — make it so. — Nick Caruso
