Samsung MU6300 4K TV (50-inch)
Save $150: A 50-inch Samsung MU6300 4K TV currently goes for $479 at Best Buy (or $750 on Samsung’s website), but right now you save a decent amount by picking up a refurbished model on eBay today. It’s going for just $379, plus you get an extra $50 off if you use the code “PLAYFUL15” at checkout, bringing the total down to $329 — and that’s about as budget-friendly as a quality 4K TV can get. — Tucker Bowe
The North Face Apex Flex GTX Hooded Jacket
Save 30%: Soft shell jackets land somewhere in the space between tradition windbreakers and fleece jackets. However, instead of getting lost in the shuffle, the softshell’s versatility helps it stand out. Today, you can get the Apex Flex GTX Hooded Jacket by The North Face for $161, when it usually retails for $229.
A three-layer GoreTex liner makes the Apex Flex GTX both wind and waterproof while venting under the arms works to regulate the temperature inside the jacket. More so, the fit of the jacket makes it possible to use as a base or mid-layer on chillier days. It’s most definitely a three season item, but if you plan on heading anywhere with serious altitude or a chance of a temperature drop a good soft shell like the Apex Flex GTX Hooded Jacket by The North Face is essential.

No matter your destination, there’s a bag that will fulfill your needs, and among the current options, prices start at just $69. — John Zientek
Taschen Coffee Table Books
Save up to 75%: Your home is more than a living space; that term would imply that the sole purpose of everything inside it is to aid in the functions of daily survival. The truth is that your apartment or house is filled with a consciously- and unconsciously-collected group of objects that together act as a representation of who you are. (And if it truly is empty, well that says a lot, too.)
As a focal point of one of the more social rooms in any space — the living room — the coffee table provides an opportunity to curate how visitors might understand you. Yes, it’s a surface for remote controls and drinking vessels, but it can also accommodate larger objects, like books. There’s even a term for this: the coffee table book.
These publications are extensive and usually filled with as many pictures as words. Every subject is fair game too — the art lover might display a tome on Matisse’s work with paper cut-outs, while a vagabond would favor photographer Steve McCurry’s photographic work in Afghanistan. These two books and many more are currently featured in Taschen’s sale on display and slightly-damaged models. Discounts range from 25-75 percent off, and given that these big books can cost as much as $700, it’s a sale worth checking out. — Tanner Bowden
Mountain Steals Tent Sale
Save 46%: While Memorial Day Weekend is often symbolic of the beginning of Summer Fridays (if you’re lucky enough to get them), today is the summer solstice. It’s also the longest day of the year and the official start of summer. The weather is currently cooperating, and bringing with it nights that are often pleasant, temperature-wise. If sleeping outdoors is your jam, you know the time to do so is now. And while there are many ways to do so in your backyard — hammock, tree house, etc. — this sale on tents is the best way to do it everywhere. Save up to 46 percent on tents from Sierra Designs, The North Face, Eureka, Big Agnes, Nemo and more. Pick one up that is light, portable and spacious, as well as minimalist in nature. Here are a few to get you started. — Meg Lappe
