Fresh Deals


Citizen Promaster Diver
Save 63%: Featuring a solar-powered movement, an ISO-compliant 200-meter depth rating, a refined profile and sub-$300 price tag, the Citizen Promaster offers up a lot of watch for not a lot of money. It’s no wonder it is one of our favorite entry-level dive watches. Right now, though, Amazon has given the watch its biggest markdown yet: 63 percent from its $295 MSRP. — Andrew Connor

The Citizenry Oaxacan Natural Glass Tumblers
Save 20%: Handcrafted cocktails deserve an equally exceptional high-quality glass. These tumblers (sold in a set of four) are unique, thanks to the 19 glassblowers who handmade these sets of four at the Xaquixe Glass Studio in Mexico, which makes them an ideal addition to your barware. And, the better your bar tools, the easier it is to throw together a cocktail for any occasion — whether that’s after a long Monday or to celebrate a Super Bowl win all week long. — Meg Lappe

Amazon Echo Spot
Save $14: The Echo Spot is a hybrid between Amazon’s Echo Dot and Echo Show smart speakers, combining an Alexa-enabled speaker with a touchscreen, and it actually makes for a pretty handy alarm clock. It was announced this past September with the expectation that it would be delivered before Christmas — but, as many people found out, delays pushed that delivery date back to early January. (You probably didn’t get one for Christmas if you wanted one.) Amazon seems to be making up for that earlier snafu by discounting the Echo Spot for the first time. You can save $15 on one if you order today. — Tucker Bowe

LG C7P 4K OLED TV (65-inches)
Save 58% or $2,900 :
The C7P is LG’s flagship OLED TV. It has the same stunning 4K picture quality as the brand’s high-end W7 OLED, just without the wallpaper-thin design and extremely high price tag. We also selected it as one of the best OLED TVs in 2017. It’s an excellent TV to consider if you’re looking to make the jump to OLED, and eBay is currently offering a 55-inch C7P for $1,560 — that’s roughly $1,439 less than what it normally was going for earlier this year. The better deal, however, is the larger model. You can currently buy the 65-inch C7P on eBay for $2,099, which is 58-percent less than its original $4,999 MSRP and also significantly less than what it’s going for on Amazon ($2,697). — Tucker Bowe

iPad Air
Save $139:
Apple officially discontinued the entire iPad Air line last year, replacing it with the $329 iPad. This new iPad was $70 cheaper than the iPad Air 2 and came with a newer better processor, but it was also heavier and thicker. For those still interested in thinner and lighter, Apple currently sells refurbished iPad Air 2 models for $319 and up. However, if the price is a sticking point, you can also get an older refurbished iPad Air (5th-generation, released in 2013) for $180 on Amazon. It has a Retina display and is almost the same size as the newer iPad Air 2. The main downsides are that you’re getting a slower processor and no Touch ID. (You can break down a few other differences between two models, here.) It’s a good deal and, considering that Amazon has a 30-day return policy, it’s also a pretty safe bet. — Tucker Bowe
