Just in time for Black Friday (and ostensibly to commemorate the premiere of The Grand Tour), Amazon’s discounting 1-year Prime memberships to $79 today, for new members only.

In the past, there have been loopholes for existing members to take advantage of these sporadic Prime discounts, but unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be the case this time around. That said, if you still haven’t yet joined Prime, this is a fantastic opportunity.

Need convincing? We’ve compiled a rapidly expanding list of benefits that you get with your membership, including free two day shipping, access to thousands of streaming TV shows and movies (including...The Grand Tour), 20% off video games, free Kindle ebooks, and a whole lot more. It’s the best deal in tech even at $99, so you shouldn’t hesitate at $79.

beauty steals

While Ulta may seem like Sephora’s less-hip younger sister, the beauty retailer does have the better sales (and rewards program, but that’s another story). Right now, they’re having their Cyber Fundays, which is a two-day ultimate deal extravaganza. Grab 50% off all BareMinerals lifestyle kits, 40% off NYX lip colors, 20% off Mario Badescu skin care, and more.

The Body Shop isn’t just for great smelling body lotions and bridal shower gifts. The skin care at The Body Shop is low key amazing. I’ve tried most of the Vitamin C line and I highly recommend it. Get 40% off sitewide with the code TBSLOVESYOU right now.

The Tea Tree line is the most popular, with Vitamin C right behind it. I just stumbled on their new Atlantic Seaweed Gel Cream that seems like it could be life-changing with its “aquatic” scent and oceanic material, but it’s unfortunately not included in the sale.

Japanese skincare may have been eclipsed by K-Beauty, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t good. Tatcha has some of the most unique and interesting skin care products out right now, including the Dewy Skin Mist and the Rice Enzyme Powder. And, they’re giving you 20% off when you use the code FF2016.

Perricone MD took the idea of “no makeup makeup” and ran with it. Their line of cosmetics like No Lipstick Lipstick and No Blush Blush have been at the top of lists across the Internet. And their skincare is top tier. So, if you want to get in on this trend, use the code SETS20 and get 20% off their skincare and makeup sets, some of which are already discounted.

Plus, even if you don’t find something in their sets that appeals to you, they have free shipping and free samples for every order.

Having a palette that doesn’t skimp on face and lip products is a big freakin’ deal. With the jane iredale Glamour Eye & Lip Palette, you get 15 eye shadows, 10 lipsticks, and five glosses, all in one place. And, it’s marked down to only $56 right now.


And so it begins. Besides the markdown of Amazon Prime (which if you haven’t taken advantage of, what are you even doing?), Amazon is rolling out a bunch of great deals today. The site is taking 20% off on “select clothes, shoes, jewelry, watches, and more.” And by “select,” they mean basically everything. Discount is applied at checkout, so make sure you’re paying attention.

Imagine buying a coat or a new pair of boots, and having them show up on Monday, rather than two weeks from now. Buying from Amazon Fashion allows that, since Prime is available on most items.

Black Friday is about a week away, but H&M is rolling out deal after deal. Right now, a crazy amount of styles are up to 60% off for one day only. You can get basically anything, including kids and home, for up to 60% off. Plus, use the code 0319 and you’ll get free shipping. Don’t say I never did anything for you.

A sale on sale styles at ModCloth is one thing, but when they have a Flash Sale with 40% off select fan favorite styles, you know it’s good. Tons of dresses, accessories, tops, and skirts are discounted, so add some vintage flair to your wardrobe on the cheap. And, because the prices are slashed, you maybe experiment with a style you never thought you could.

It’s not hard to see why Levi’s has been popular for over 160 years. The quality and craftsmanship hasn’t really faltered and that’s really what matters when it comes to denim. If you haven’t gotten yourself a pair of jeans that will last you just yet, take advantage of up to 50% off select Levi’s styles, plus free shipping with the code READY30 when you spend $100.

Take your mind off the the world around you and go climb a mountain. And if you need to replace your hiking shoes, or just need an excuse to get another pair, Amazon’s one-day, up to 40% off sale on select hiking shoes is here for you. Boots and shoes from Salamon, Merrell, and SCARPA are all included in the sale, but this deal only lasts until the wolf howls at midnight.

Vince is a brand that’s synonymous with comfortable, easy basics. And it’s no surprise that when Nordstrom Rack has a Vince sale, things start selling out quick. If you need to stock up on super flattering trousers or sweaters you can hide from the world in, you’d better hurry up.

Superga is one of those brands you see everywhere without knowing it. The comfortable canvas sneakers are on soccer moms and supermodels. Celebrate the awkward holiday coming up with new sneakers. Right now, get 40% off select styles, no code needed.

Inkkas are based 0n keeping shoes fair trade, while maintaining a sense of style. If you’ve been considering trying out their incredibly diverse and vast selection of shoes, an exclusive 25% discount should sway you. Use the code KINJA and get your own pair of Inkkas today.

Inkkas creates sneakers and shoes for everyone. From fabric made in, and inspired, by Latin America (where almost every shoe is made) to super soft, premium leather, every style has been created to make a statement. I have a pair of the Mustang Leather High-Tops and they’re super comfortable to wear all day. They’re also a thousand times better looking than a lot of other high-top sneaker options out right now.

The cooler weather is coming, and it’s time to prepare. Backcountry is taking 30% off select styles from Patagonia. This does include staples like their Nano-Air Jacket and Ultralight Down Vest (plus a few summer styles leftover as well). Stock up while the prices are way low.

Plus, if you don’t see anything you like from Patagonia, Backcountry is giving you 20% off any one full-price item when you use the code BC20PERCENT.

Home GooDs

Steaming your clothes might not get them as crisp as ironing, but it does a decent enough job in a fraction of the time, and for $15, why not? It’s even small enough to pack away in your suitcase.

While it doesn’t have the brand recognition of Nest’s learning Thermostat, the Ecobee3 Smart Thermostat one-ups its most popular competitor by including a wireless remote sensor that you can place elsewhere in your house, giving the thermostat a more accurate picture of your home’s overall temperature. Plus, it’ll work with Siri via HomeKit, and your Amazon Echo too. For context, $200 is a solid $50 less than usual.

The complete X-Files Collector’s Set is backed with 57 (!!!) discs comprising all 10 seasons (including the new special event series from earlier this year), plus over 25 hours of extra features. If you’re a die-hard fan, Amazon’s selling the set for $120 in today’s Gold Box, the lowest price ever.


Disney is apparently a consumer electronics company now, and their Circle seems like a must-buy piece of gear for every parent this holiday season.

Circle syncs with your home Wi-Fi, and lets you set content filters, app-by-app time limits, and a whole lot more on any iOS or Android device. I honestly have no clue how this works, but reviews are solid, and today’s $85 price is $15 less than usual.

Monoprice sells everything from charging cables to speaker systems to 3D printers, and you can save 15% on (nearly) all of it today during the site’s early Black Friday sale. Promo code EARLYBF will get you the deal at checkout; just note that there are some exclusions, but it’s not totally clear what they are.
