BEAUTY STEALS

Kneipp has been producing beauty and skincare products with natural ingredients way before it was A Thing. Like, 125 years before it was A Thing. And right now, you can add some nourishing hand cream from the brand for just $4, plus free shipping, when you use the code KINJA at checkout. Add some nourishment to your life.

THE BIG SALEs

If reliability is something you crave in a pair of shoes (if it isn’t, you may need to reconsider), I bet you have Cole Haan in your closet. And if you’re looking for a new pair but don’t want to spend the normal asking price, Cole Haan is having a huge Summer Sale. That means 25-40% off their best sellers, plus 50-70% off sale items. It’s basically their biggest sale of the year.


It’s about time you do some cleaning out of your drawers. Get rid of those laundry-day-only undies in favor of something you’ll actually like wearing. Aerie is giving you 10 undies for only $35, no code needed, which is kind of insane seeing as they usually sell them for $12+.


Free People has grown up out of their exclusively hippy-dippy, oversized style, and with this Nordstrom Rack sale, you can take advantage. Right now, they’re marking down a ton of clothing styles, shoes, lingerie pieces, and more for up to 50% off.


You voted Eye Buy Direct one of your five favorite online glasses stores, and right now, pick up any pair of glasses or sunglasses (for $15 or more) and get another pair free. Stay shady by using the code BACKTOBOGO at checkout and stock up, because this deal won’t last. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have six pairs of sunglasses in my cart that I need to decide on.


REI’s Garage Sale is back once again, and this one includes tents, sleeping bags, hiking boots, clothes for men, women, and kids, and more, all up to 70% off. However, they’ve only stocked limited quantities, so today’s your best bet to snag the good stuff. Head over to REI before it’s gone.

HOME GOODs

Whether you’re dipping your toes into smart home tech, or just want to add a new accessory to the collection, TP-Link’s smart switch and LIFX’s smart white light bulb are both just $10 today with promo code SMART10. That’s the best price we’ve seen on either of them, and in fact, the best price we’ve seen on any products like them.

Update: The code will only work if you have an Alexa device tied to your Amazon account.


Just in time for back-to-school season, Amazon’s marking down a whole bunch of Crayola art supplies in today’s Gold Box.

If you want to earn some PTA brownie points, you can buy some discounted class packs of crayons, markers, modeling clay, or paint brushes to donate to your kid’s classroom, since a lot of teachers end up having to do that out of their own pocket.


BioLite BaseLantern Lantern and Power Bank | $70 | Amazon | Use code GIZMOPLC

BioLife is best known for its wood-burning, phone-charging camp stoves, but its BaseLantern is another great camping accessory, and our readers can save $30 on theirs today with promo code GIZMOPLC.

As you might have guessed from the name, BaseLantern is a lantern, and also a base station for other BioLite accessories. With two BioLite SiteLite ports onboard, you can plug in the company’s string lights and hanging lanterns to draft off the BaseLantern’s 7800mAh battery; just drape them over some tree branches for a well-illuminated campsite.

With built-in Bluetooth, you can even connect your phone to set a sleep timer on the BaseLantern, control its brightness, or even change the lamp’s color on the fly. And if your phone is running out of juice, you can plug two of them into the BaseLantern’s USB ports for a quick charge.


Mark Bittman, the author of the super popular How to Cook Everything, has written a sequel that focuses on just the fundamentals of cooking. It’s a book with over a 1,000 photos to show you step-by-step directions on how to test doneness, crimp a pie crust shut, crack an egg, and buying better seafood. How to Cook Everything The Basics is just $3 today, so download it before this deal gets gobbled up.


Netgear’s popular Arlo home security system is a lot like Nest Cam, except the cameras can run off battery power, so you really can stick them anywhere. Today only, a bunch of starter kits and accessories are on sale in Amazon’s Gold Box, including a single camera for an all-time low $100, which is perfect if you want to test drive the system before installing them all around your home.


$116 might seem like a lot to invest in a toothbrush, but the Oral-B Pro 7500 includes multiple brushing modes, a Bluetooth connection that gives you real time feedback and advice on your phone, and even an LED ring built into the handle that glows in different colors to tell you when it’s time to switch quadrants, or when you’re brushing too hard.

Outside of some very brief discount in May, $116 is the best price we’ve seen all year, so you can treat your teeth today. You’ll see the $20 discount at checkout.



Growing your own herbs and vegetables can be a cathartic experience, but it doesn’t have to be a difficult or expensive one. Walmart will ship you an easy-to-assemble garden bed kit for just $20 today. You’ll still have to supply the soil and seeds, but once you buy this, you might finally have the motivation to start planting.


If you’re fully bought into the Fitbit ecosystem, the company’s second generation smart scale just got its best discount ever on Amazon.

The Fitbit Aria 2 syncs with the Fitbit app on your phone to give you a better sense of how your activity level affects your weight. And unlike most smart scales that use Bluetooth, and require you to open a specific app on your phone, Fitbit’s solution works directly with your home Wi-Fi network for seamless data syncing.

At $100, it’s certainly more expensive than other smart scales out there, but if you’ve been a loyal Fitbit user for awhile now, and want to keep everything within the same ecosystem, this $30 discount is the best we’ve seen so far.

TECH

It’s not as advanced as a Samsung Gear VR or Oculus Rift, but if you have a smartphone and $11, you can experience VR with this View-Master VR starter set. The View-Master is actually just a Google Cardboard-compatible VR headset, except, you know, it’s not made of cardboard, even if it’s priced like it could be.
