It sports a 12-inch glass reheat table, ten variable power levels, a one-year replacement warranty and a particularly useful “A Bit More” button, which adds exactly “a bit” of cook time. Best part? It’s $40 off right now. — Will Price
Save $900: The Barcelona Chair isn’t just icon of modern furniture design, but modern design writ large — and we won’t say $900 off makes it a no-brainer pick-up, but it definitely doesn’t hurt.
Made to the same specifications today as it was in its heyday, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s 1929 piece was originally made to seat the king and queen of Spain at an event in Barcelona. The legs and frame are hand-buffed chrome, and the seat and cushion itself is a combination of Spinneyback Volo cowhide and cowhide belting straps.
The Barcelona Chair, its accompanying stool, couch and more than 200 other items are part of the DWR Dining and Knoll sale going on right now. — Will Price
Save $19: Apple still doesn’t sell AirPods in the “certified refurbished” part of its site, but Best Buy does.

It’s not a lot, but to the best of my knowledge, it’s the only place you can get any type of deal on Apple AirPods. — Tucker Bowe

You’re sure to spot a pair (or five) on triathlon, marathons and ultras courses — the cushioning is unparalleled. To sweeten the deal, when you use code JRSOLEV at checkout, you can pick up a pair of the Vanquish 3s for just $67 down from $170. — Meg Lappe
