Kiko Milano Cosmetics is a rare, but versatile drugstore brand. They’re on the higher-end of the prices you see in your local Walgreens or CVS, but buy any two of their lipsticks and get another one free. Choose from their 3d Hydra Lipgloss, Instant Colour Matte Liquid Lip Colour, Smart Fusion Lipstick, Unlimited Double Touch, or Gossamer Emotion Creamy Lipstick. Just add three to your cart and you’ll see the discount.

The Big Sales

Free People has finally grown up out of their exclusively hippy-dippy, oversized style, though this sale at Nordstrom Rack still has some of that lingering like the smell of patchouli. But with four pages of apparel, and a page of shoes, this sale is worth digging around in.

Now is the time to get your wardrobe in order (before it’s the start of the new season and you still have nothing to wear). Right now, ModCloth is giving you 25% off fresh picks, with everything from home goods to outerwear included. This is a flash sale, so you’d better hurry or the discount’ll disappear.

It’s been a couple months since we’ve seen extra discounts from Madewell, and it’s come at a perfect time to spend all the money you should be saving for holiday gifts. Use the code GOODLOOKS and get an extra 30% off every sale item they have, which is over 430 choices. Boots, sweaters, scarves, and some off-season styles are all in there for the taking.

If you need anything for the outdoors, Backcountry has it on sale. With up to 50% off a ton of stuff during their Semi-Annual Sale, there are thousands of items on sale. But, that’s not all. Head over to this section and you’ll get an extra 20% off select cold-weather styles from Patagonia, Marmot, The North Face, and Mountain Hardware. Outerwear, boots, bags, and more are discounted, so maybe it’s time to think about going for a winter camping trip.

When it comes to having a corner on the market, nothing really compares to Nike. And right now, take an extra 25% off their sale styles for both men and women, no code needed. Everything you could need for a good workout wardrobe is included, from apparel, to sneakers, to gear.

Home Goods

Somewhat counterintuitively, dull kitchen knives are more dangerous than sharp ones, as they’re more likely to slip off the side of whatever you’re cutting, and go into your hand.

Luckily, you don’t necessarily need to buy a new knife to get a sharp edge; this professional electric sharpener is down to its lowest price ever in today’s Gold Box. Boasting a fantastic 4.6 star review average from over 800 customers, the Chef’s Choice 15 XV can even convert standard 20 degree edges into even sharper 15 degree edges, meaning your knives could actually come out sharper than they were when you first bought them.

Just remember that like all Gold Box deals, this $100 price is only available today, or until sold out.

If you haven’t gotten around to doing your taxes yet, you’re in luck, as Amazon’s running the best deals we’ve seen so far on H&R Block tax software.

Those crossed out MSRPs you see? Those are the prices H&R Block actually charges, so we’re talking about serious savings here. If you need help deciding which tier to buy, H&R Block has a handy comparison chart here.

The best part? When you file through this software, you can opt to receive all or a portion of your refund in the form of an Amazon gift card, which will net you a 5% bonus (sadly down from last year’s 10%). So a $1,000 refund could become $1,050 in your Amazon account, which would more than make up for the cost of the software.

You can make bath time a little more bearable for both you and your pup with this Waterpik 10.5-inch wand attachment. It hooks up to your sink, shower head, or outdoor hose. With adjustable water pressure, the wand can help speed up bath time with a more full-coverage spray that washes away dirt and shampoo, getting deep down into your dog’s coat. No guarantees they won’t immediately roll in mud, but we do what we can.

Have a larger dog? This 13-inch attachment is just $40 after the 10% off coupon.

Drink up some great prices on Thermos mugs, water bottles, food jars, and even a giant 40 oz. double walled container with a lid that doubles as a serving cup. Just note that like all Gold Box deals, these prices are only available today, or until sold out.

On top of being possibly the prettiest cookware you can buy, this Cuisinart copper hammered 8-piece set is made with tri-ply construction, meaning it provides superior heat distribution and conductivity. This is the good stuff that professionals use. Plus, today’s price is the best we’ve seen, including a $170 deal from Woot on the same set last month.

You all know this, but replacing your air filters is the cheapest way to improve the air quality in your home, removing funky smells and allergens. Home Depot is selling a whole bunch of 12-packs of Arm & Hammer air filters for just $54 today. So go ahead and stock up before spring allergies swarm in.

Update: Today’s the last day of the sale, so get your home goods for an extra 40% off while you can.

Time to get comfy, because Urban Outfitters is having a home sale. Take an extra 40% off every home good that’s already on sale. That includes decor, furniture, bedding, even flatware. Just try not to go overboard because you may never want to leave your newly redecorated apartment (though, I don’t blame you).


Nebula Capsule | $279 | Amazon | Promo code ACAPSULE

Update 2/26: Now down to $279 with promo code ACAPSULE.

Anker, as you probably know by now, makes a lot of products. But I don’t think any of them are as ambitious as the Nebula Capsule, a surprisingly good portable projector shrunk down to the size of a soda can.

At this size, the Capsule is obviously not as bright as a projector you’d permanently mount to your ceiling, and its standard definition resolution won’t dazzle, but it can run for hours on a charge, and has great audio built in, making it ideal for an impromptu outdoor movie night, or even as a replacement for your bedroom TV. I’ve played around with it, and you can see all of my thoughts here.

For a limited time, the Capsule is marked down to $296 on Amazon, which is about $50 less than usual, and the best price we’ve seen since it was up for preorder on Indiegogo.

DirecTV Now is one of the better over-the-top cable replacements out there, and with this deal, there’s very little reason not to give it a try.

For a limited time, if you prepay for three months of the service at $35 per month, you’ll get a 4K Apple TV included for free. That Apple TV costs $179 normally, so you’re basically getting a $74 discount on the box, plus three months of live TV. No brainer.

Update: Alternatively, you can pay for a single month at $35, and get a free 4K Fire TV (normally $70, currently $50). Thanks, cubeenigma.
