Cheap Outdoor Seating
Save Up to 65%Wayfair is a place for stupidly affordable products from brands you probably haven’t heard of (but not in the cool way). It’s also a place you should probably avoid buying from at retail. Today, cheap products are made cheaper, as up a wealth of outdoor furniture is marked down up to 65 percent.
Do note, we have not tested and cannot vet the quality of the many chaises, sectionals, umbrellas and Adirondacks available. However, if you belong to a way of thinking that reasons your patio furniture needn’t be of the best quality, and that if it’s going to sit in the rain anyway it might as well be of middling quality, this is the sale for you.
Wayfair’s cheap outdoor furniture sale runs now and for the next four days. — Will Price
A.P.C. Standard Jean
Save 35%: French brand A.P.C. is known for producing a range of understated wardrobe classics. After 30 years, the brand’s minimalist take on these garments has garnered a loyal following in Europe and abroad. One of A.P.C.’s quintessential garments is the Standard Jean, a five-pocket high waist style with a straight leg — a timeless silhouette that is flattering on a range of body types. Now at End, you can save 35 percent on the jean in washed Japanese denim. It’s a wash that will transitional nicely from the last hot days of summer to the first cool days of fall, and a great value at this price. — John Zientek
Clarks Bushacre Chukka Boots
Save 51%: Currently, Nordstrom Rack is offering substantial savings on a pair of Clarks desert boots. The timeless style is 51 percent off and costs just $49, a price not rarely seen save major events like Prime Day. You’d be smart to pick up a pair, as the style is versatile, lightweight and appropriate for multiple seasons. The Bushacre Chukka features a beeswax leather upper, a durable rubber sole and a cushioned insole for comfort. Available in sizes 7 to 13, these will sell out quickly at this price, so don’t wait. — John Zientek
Anova Sous Vide
Save 46%mark>Google “best sous vide” and find Anova’s sous vide circulator recommended far and wide.
It’s easier to use than its best competition, the ChefSteps Joule, and boasts more power, which allows it to reach temperature moderately faster. Its biggest differentiating point, though, is the ability to control it manually — by clicking buttons on the actual machine — and via a powerful app. The Joule, though I believe its app to be more robust, is only manageable through said app.
Anova’s sous vide tool retails at $150, but is marked down to $80 today. A savings of 46 percent, good for its cheapest price ever. — Will Price
Mophie Powerstation Plus Portable Battery w/ Lightning Connector
Save $86: Especially if you have an older iPhone, because its battery is likely terrible, carrying a separate portable power bank is almost a must. This one by Mophie is perfect. It’s tiny, small enough to fit in your pocket. It has an integrated Lightning cord, so you don’t need to bring your own. And it’s dirt cheap, as low as $14 today. — Tucker Bowe
