Beauty Steals

It’s a straight up MAC attack. Nordstrom Rack has three pages worth of MAC products on super discount, with every color, shade, and function you could want. From lipstick, to shadow, to eyeliner, it’s all ther for the taking, but you’d better hurrty because these prices are only for three days, and things are already selling out.

Stila Cosmetics is one of those brands you stumble upon at Sephora and become instantly devoted to. They also make your favorite eyeliner by a very wide margin. So, if you’re a Stila loyalist, or if you’ve been wanting to try them out, use the code BCA to get 40% off select items, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Plus, all of the proceeds go to The Foundation for Living Beauty.

Note: Tarte recently exposed the personal information of nearly 2,000,000 customers. One would hope they’ve improved their security since, but just so you’re aware.

Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara is pretty much universally loved, and if you’re a fan, this sale is your salvation. Right now, Tarte Cosmetics is marking down all of their full-size mascaras to just $10. That’s drugstore pricing for formulas that just won’t quit. Try something new or stock up on your favorite tubes.

The Big Sales

Whether it’s a knee brace, compression shorts, or a ventilated duffel bag, this Amazon Gold Box is a god send for those of us that work out. Get the no-show socks you need, or that ankle brace you’ve been needing, even moisture-wicking boxers briefs. Though, if you need to stock up, you’d better do it fast, because this deal runs out at the end of the day.

For the first time in a long time, J.Crew Factory is giving you a sitewide promo code. Use the code LUCKYU and get 35% off “full-priced” items, and an extra 50% off their entire clearance section, plus free shipping. If there’s any piece of clothing or accessory that you’ve been needing to upgrade, this sale is for you.

Somehow, it’s already halfway through October, but Backcountry is thinking about getting you outside and get you geared up for less. Take up to 25% off all Marmot gear, no code needed. Markdowns include cold-weather-ready outerwear, tops, tents, and more. It’s like Christmas for the outdoorsy people in your life.

ThinkGeek has got your Halloween costumes and decorations figured out, and it’s all on sale. Grab up to 75% off over 180 Halloween items, including party decor, costumes, and accessories for whatever geeky guy you’re going as.

Update: Use the code TREAT to get an additional 10% off (the promo codes stack).

Right now, GAP has a huge sale where everything is discounted up to 60%, which is great, sure. But they’re throwing in an additional 40% off with the code THANKS. The exclusions list is long (as usual), and it does include denim this time around, but there are a ton of majorly marked down pairs that you won’t even need the extra discount to grab for cheap.

They also just dropped a bunch of new arrivals for both men and women, just in time for the new season.

Home Goods

No matter how you prefer to carry your liquids on the go, you can probably find a bottle you’ll like in this one-day Amazon sale.

Amazon will occasionally run a bottle sale with deals from a single manufacturer, but this deal brings together a bunch of the best names in the industry. You’ll find stuff from Zojirushi, Blender Bottle, Takeya, Lifefactory, Tiger, and more in here, all marked down to great low prices.

Just remember that this is a Gold Box deal, so place your order before the prices run dry.

The bestselling, top-rated, and audience-favorite robotic vacuum just came out with a new and improved model, and you can suck up yours today for just $200 with code 2GEROB11.

It has the features you guys loved about the first one - remote control, a slim body to reach under furniture, and large dust box, but boasts upgraded suction power, so the vacuum will sense when it needs to use a little extra juice to take care of a mess. It also has slightly larger wheels to easier navigate over door jams and higher-pile carpets, plus a larger HEPA-style filter to better trap allergens and pet hair. How convenient!

Preorder The Trump Leaks, $24

The Onion “obtained” 700 pages of internal documents from the Trump White House, and they’re being compiled into a book that you can preorder on Amazon for an all-time low price.

Today’s $24 price tag is the lowest preorder price Amazon’s offered so far, and if it drops any lower prior to release next week, you’ll automatically get the best price once it ships. Needless to say, this could make a great gift for your aunt in Antifa.

Full disclosure, we’re part of a larger Univision-owned family of websites that includes The Onion, but this is a legitimately good deal, and nobody told me to write about it.

If you’ve ever spent more than 5 seconds sorting through your mismatched food containers to find the right lid, it’s time to throw them all out and upgrade to the uber-popular Rubbermaid Easy Find Lid system.

These containers come in six different sizes, and yet you only have to deal with three different lids, making it much easier to find the right one. The 42 piece set is on sale for $17 today on Amazon, which is the best price we’ve seen in months.

Using a wine decanter is the classiest way to drink a whole bottle of wine in one sitting or trick guests into thinking you spent more than $7 on the bottle. Wuudi is offering discounts on two different models today - a U-shaped decanter just $18 with code GW4QAHME and a more traditional one with a handle just $20 with code PJCW6C7J, so drink up!


Hot of the heels of their successful Nebula Mars mobile projector, Anker’s getting set to release an even smaller portable cinema, and our readers can save a bunch by preordering, and get some free accessories too.

The Nebula Capsule is about the size of a soda can, but can turn any wall into a 100" display while outputting 360 degree audio. And you won’t be hurting for content, since you can plug in any HDMI video source, mirror your iOS or Android’s screen wirelessly, or use the built-in Android 7.0 OS to pull up your favorite streaming apps.

It’ll run for an industry-best 2.5 hours on a single charge (or 40 hours if you’re just using it as a Bluetooth speaker), but since it charges over USB, you can just bring a power bank with you for essentially unlimited playtime.

Of course, it’s not going to be as bright as a full-sized projector, or the larger Nebula Mars, but its 100 lumens are basically unmatched in the pico projector space. Similarly, its 800x480 resolution is pretty standard at this size and price point, but the picture won’t be as crisp as you’d get from a larger projector, especially at larger sizes.

But for just $269 (with our exclusive discount), it’s a perfectly capable portable theater that you can fit in your bag. That’s kind of amazing! Plus, when you order through our link, you’ll get a free mini tripod to help aim the picture, and a free carrying case too.

There’s no such thing as too much flash storage, so stock up during Amazon’s one-day SanDisk sale.

I imagine the most popular items here will be the 256GB, 200GB, and 128GB microSD cards, all marked down to all-time low prices. These are ideal for GoPros, the Nintendo Switch, or anything else that needs a lot of extra storage space.

Aukey’s newest battery pack isn’t much thicker than your smartphone, and yet it’s packing 20,000mAh of power, three USB output ports, a USB-C input/output port, and even a Lightning input port so you can recharge it with your Apple gear. Get it for $32 with promo code AUKEYPY4.
