All-Clad Non-Stick Griddle
Save 20%: Non-stick cookware is oft misunderstood. No, it cannot be your do-it-all cookware for making any dish your heart desires. In fact, its uses are relatively restricted in comparison to its stainless steel or cast iron cousins, but it is by no means without use.
Apart from the recommended fish and egg dishes that most people associate with non-stick cookware, it’s equally excellent with dishes where the flipping of the food is a make-or-break moment — most notably, quesadillas (pancakes, too). A flipping failure in another cookware type will result in a tearing of the quesadilla which will only end in sadness. The process is simple: tortilla down, ingredients in, tortilla on top, flip when ready.
The only separate issue is a lack of space, as most non-stick skillets are significantly smaller than the average stainless steel alternative. That’s where this All-Clad non-stick griddle comes into play, every bit of its 11-inch-by-11-inch size cookable and primed for easy flipping. Today, that griddle is 20 percent off on Amazon — good for a savings of $10 and its lowest price ever. — Will Price
Fall Essentials From Bonobos
Save 25%: Colder weather’s coming, and you need sweaters. Lots of ’em. While you’re at it, why not some fresh selvedge denim? Or a nice, unstructured Italian wool blazer? No matter what you’re after this fall, from calm and considered suiting to rugged-but-colorful workwear, you can find it at Bonobos’ site-wide sale. The brand is currently offering 25 percent off orders of $175 or more, and when you’re investing in a handful of quality pieces of clothing, that mark isn’t hard to hit.
Make your fall shopping count by doing it here, and walk away with more than you bargained for. — Andy Frakes
American-Made New Balance M997FGG Sneakers
Save 31%: In 1960, Massachusetts-based New Balance designed the world’s first ripple-sole running shoe. In the past half-century the brand has grown dramatically working with factories across the world to produce its iconic sneakers. While New Balance shoes produced overseas are affordable and plentiful, the brand’s flagship models are made in America.
The brand operates five shoe factories in the Northeast: three in Maine (Norridgewock, Skowhegan, and Norway), a plant in Boston and another in Lawrence, Massachusetts. While the footwear produced in these factories comes with a premium price tag, the product is well worth it. One of the brand’s iconic styles, the M977, is a prime example. At the factory, the shoe is crafted in just 22 minutes on an assembly line that is made up of around 40 stations. It features pigskin suede uppers, an Encap midsole and a durable rubber outsole.
Now at End, you can save 31 percent on the M977 in an olive drab colorway. Available in sizes 7 to 11, it now costs just $179 — not a bad price to pay for an American-made sneaker. — John Zientek
Toddy Cold Brew Coffee Maker
Save 40%: In writing a story on how to make cold brew coffee, Edward O’Hickey of specialty coffee roaster Toby’s Estate told me you could make great cold brew coffee pretty much anywhere, including a bucket.
Cold brew is an alarmingly simple and economical form of brewing. All you’re doing is grinding beans (the difference between freshly ground, freshly roasted beans and pre-ground stuff is enormous) at home or in your grocery store’s very expensive grinder, letting the grounds bathe in water for a day or so and straining the mix to remove silt or tiny coffee solids. There’s not much weighing, measuring or timing hassle involved and, according to O’Hickey, “[is] probably the easiest brew method to perfect.”
This Toddy system, which O’Hickey recommends (and I use myself), keeps it as simple as it should be; it comes with what amounts to a bucket with a hole punched in the bottom, a filter to strain the cold brew and a glass container to store it in the fridge post-brewing. The filters can be used, washed and re-used as many times as you’re comfortable with. The result of this home cold brew process is cold brew concentrate, so you’ll need to dilute it when you drink (O’Hickey recommends one-to-one with another liquid, like water or milk).
It’s also the most hands-off path to a very good cup of coffee before work and on lazy weekend mornings possible — after it’s brewed you literally just pour it over ice, add water or milk and drink. And because the Toddy system is quite a bit bigger than most cold brew contraptions, you can make enough to keep you caffeinated a couple times a day for a couple weeks.
Toddy’s system does not go on sale often, but today it’s 40 percent off on Amazon. — Will Price
Uniqlo Flannel Shirts
Save 30%: Fall is a season that calls for its own wardrobe. And while the whole lumbersexual trend may have come and gone flannels will always endure as autumn’s most functional layer. No, you don’t need to grow a beard, carry an axe or represent a paper towel company to appreciate an ultra-soft, midweight button down in a tasteful tartan pattern. Uniqlo’s, made of 100 percent cotton, are only $20 each right now. The equinox already passed but it isn’t too late to stock up, craft a canoe by hand and head to the nearest log cabin. — Tanner Bowden
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 2
Shade for Sale
Save over 50% on these classic Ray Bans: For anyone wanting a slight update to one of the most iconic eyewear designs in history, these shades from Ray-Ban are more than a good deal. This specific model a lightweight and flexible feel when worn, plus a slightly more rounded profile than the original Wayfarer design.— Andy Frakes
Brightland Olive Oils
Save 15%You need better olive oil. Not for cooking — use the cheap stuff for that — but for everything else you use (or should be using) olive oil for. That is salad dressings and “finishing” dishes (drizzling over the top of most things you make), a common restaurant practice that is all too uncommon in the home.
A set of two usually retails somewhere around $75, but are on sale on a modest 15 percent discount today on Huckberry. — Will Price
>Lowepro StreetLine SH 180 Camera Bag
Save $130: The Lowepro StreetLine SH 180 is a bespoke and functional messenger bag that’s designed to carry your DSLR and laptop. It’s currently selling on Lowepro’s website for $180 (here), but today it’s also being featured on B&H’s Deal of the Day – and it’s going for just $50 (here). As for other specs, the SH 180 has a water-resistant exterior, foldaway pockets and a stowaway compartment for an umbrella. If you’re at all in the market for a new camera bag, you’re not likely to find a better deal than this.
Today is one of the days to build such a thing. Take 40 percent off more than 700 items online with code BIGSALE (discounts in-store as well), including things currently on sale. Most sizes were available as of posting. — Will Price
Filson Mile Marker Jacket
Save 43%: Fall is here, and with that comes a need for a good-looking jacket that can stand up to cooler weathers and the occasional rainstorm (and go with those boots, that’s important, too). For that, a waterproofed canvas jacket never fails, and if you’re in the market, Filson’s Mile Marker jacket is currently a good 43 percent off at Nordstrom Rack. The exterior is made from an 8oz cotton with an oil finish (available in either green or black), features a cotton lining and a moleskin-lined collar. There is also a two-way brass zipper, snap enclosures and an adjustable drawstring waist to seal in warmth. What’s more, the jacket is compatible with some zip-in liners and attachable hoods from Filson. — Andrew Connor
Woolrich John Rich and Bros. Outerwear
Save 30%: Woolrich John Rich and Bros. makes outerwear with a decidedly urban perspective. Though its namesake heritage brand was founded in Pennsylvania in 1830, John Rich and Bros. developed in Europe under the umbrella of Italian fashion company WP Lavori starting in 1982. The brand’s styles were more continental and its understated outerwear featured sleeker silhouettes and modern fabrics. Though John Rich and Bros. has joined forces with its American counterpart in recent years, you can still pick up the distinct garments that defined the brand at a range of online retailers. Now at East Dane, you can save 30 percent on a few pieces of outerwear from Woolrich John Rich and Bros. Choose from a vest, a peacoat and a jacket — right now they’re available in full size runs. — John Zientek
Patagonia Apparel and Equipment
Save up to 50%: Patagonia’s reputation for producing some of the best outdoor apparel and equipment available goes without saying. That now-iconic label that depicts the Fitz Roy skyline — a lodestar for the company’s founder, Yvon Chouinard, who climbed the mountain in 1968 — is a mark that implies the company’s values: “Build the best product, cause no unnecessary harm.” It’s also as well-recognized as any brand, even those from the fashion world.
But Patagonia couldn’t have earned its reputation if the items that it makes weren’t high quality, or if they didn’t push the boundaries of technical performance through innovative materials and designs. Some pieces, like its Synchilla Fleece, have done this for years. Others, like the ultralight Micro Puff Jacket, are brand new. These and much more of Patagonia’s catalog are handily on sale for as much as 50 percent off right now at Mountain Steals — just in time for the arrival of cooler weather. — Tanner Bowden
Light My Fire Spork Sale
Save 60+%: Hiking and camping require a significant amount of planning — there are the right hiking boots and backpack, a sturdy water bottle and a GPS tracker. The one thing you don’t need to overthink and pack is a spork. No matter what you’re cooking or boiling, a spoon and fork-combo is a helpful camp tool. If it’s beans and rice for dinner, pick the spoon. If it’s spaghetti a la pesto, the fork is probably your best bet.
A serrated edge on the fork means there’s no need to bring a knife, and no matter how hot your food is, you don’t have to worry about melting the BPA-free spork. Made in Sweden, the 6.75-inch utensil is full-size. While available in 17 different colors, the green is on sale now for just $2. — Meg Lappe
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 3
Oliver Peoples Rickman Sunglasses
Save 85%: LA-based eyewear brand Oliver Peoples is known for producing tasteful and refined sunglasses. The brand’s focus on detail and quality manufacturing set it apart from many competitors as it grew through the ‘90s. If you’re looking to pick up a pair of Oliver Peoples shades, but don’t want to pay prices north of $300, Nordstrom Rack has a deal for you. The Rickman sunglasses are now 85 percent off and cost just $53. The style features a metal frame with precise filigree detailing, tortoise acetate temple tips and vintage-inspired brown lenses. If you’re able to pick these up before they sell out, consider yourself lucky — these are a ridiculous value. — John Zientek
Save 55%:This specific model is one of Dyson’s manufacturer refurbs, which is a virtual non-factor. The brand describes its refurb products as having “been thoroughly tested to meet like-new performance standards. Units may have some cosmetic blemishes that include scratches and/or other surface imperfections, that do not affect functionality.”
The refurbished V6 is marked down to $180 from $400. — Will Price
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H9i ANC Headphones
Save $140: Bang & Olufsen’s headphones are all about combining rich, high-quality sound with a luxurious and comfortable design. And its Beoplay H9i are the highest-end headphones that the company makes. Made of aluminum and leather, the Beoplay H9i are wireless over-ear headphones that have an 18-hour battery life and offer pretty good noise-cancellation. Additionally, they have a transparency (or ambient) mode so you can better and more safely hear the world around you. And they have built-in optical sensors for automatic play/pause when you take the headphones on or off. If you value sound and design, then the Beoplay H9i are great headphones to consider. Plus right now, the normally $500 headphones are down to $360 on Amazon. — Tucker Bowe
Nike Classic Cortez Nylon
Save $28:Without the Cortez, there would be no Nike. The running-turned-lifestyle shoe, designed by famed track coach Bill Bowerman for Onitsuka Tiger — Nike began as the US importer for Onitsuka Tiger (today a division of Asics) — popularized midsole technology, setting a standard that practically every running shoe since would follow.
Early versions of the Cortez were heralded for their comfort and worn by distance runners the world over, including athletes at the 1972 Summer Olympics. Nike’s sales skyrocketed, propelling the company on a path to becoming the multi-billion dollar corporation it is today.
Nike now sells several variations of the iconic Cortez — it’s even available through the company’s custom iD program — but you can pick up the navy Classic Cortez Nylon for $28 off the original asking price.
Jungmaven Hemp Tees Sale
Save 15%: Starting with the first wear, you’ll enjoy the worn-in feel, classic fit and breathable fabric. Born in the USA, each tee has a mix of 55-percent hemp and 45-percent cotton to provide a weightier feel that’s wearable in all four seasons. Right now you can pick from a short sleeve or long sleeve option in a variety of colors — each for 15 percent off. — Meg Lappe

My New Favorite Water Bottle Is Collapsible, and on Sale
Save 29%: I’ve had the same stainless steel water bottle for ten years, and HydraPak’s collapsible Stash bottle might have just replaced it. — Tanner Bowden
Save up to 66% Nordstrom Rack is currently unloading, literally, scores of Frye products right now — including boots, loafers, sneakers, dress shoes and accessories — at discounts up to 66 percent off. Tons of styles are available in a variety of colors and sizes, too, meaning you don’t need to have tiny or massive feet to get a good deal. — Andrew Connor
Kuhn Rikon Peeler
Save 38%: In short, because of a swiveling blade it adjusts to the natural curves of the food you peel, and because that blade is split down the middle it acts as both its own guide (the front of the blade) and edge to remove skin. The space between the both blade edges is also such that food can easily pass through, so clogging is at an all-time low. Another small but impactful difference between the Swiss Peeler and most of its competition is a very tiny elevated area around the blades which, according to Cook’s Illustrated, reduces how much of the food touches the blade, which reduces friction, which allows the blade to “glide like butter.”
A three-pack of Kuhn Rikon’s Swiss Peelers is on sale on Amazon today at a modest 38 percent discount (a couple bucks off, basically). — Will Price
Todd Snyder Clothing
Save an Extra 25%: New York designer Todd Snyder honed his craft at J.Crew and Ralph Lauren before starting his eponymous label. The brand’s clothing reflects his training: it’s a range of well-made wardrobe staples and tasteful collaborations. If you’d like to pick up some staples from the brand, you can now save an additional 25 percent on sale items. Just use the code EXTRA25 to save on button-down shirts, chinos, sneakers and more. — John Zientek
Save Up to 40%: Per Consumer Reports, September and October are down months in the pricing of most major appliances. Essentially, the sales pre-empting Black Friday and the holiday season are comparable to Black Friday and holiday season sales.
The typical spots to pick up appliances all have deals, discounts and free shipping (most definitely not free installation, though) opportunities — including Lowe’s, Home Depot and Sears, which each have discounts up to 40 percent off the sticker price in all major appliance categories. Most discounts run until the middle of the month — we’ve listed out some of the best deals we found below. — Will Price
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 5
So Many Sneakers
Save Up to 70%: Sneakersnstuff’s annual Fall Sneaker Sale is upon us, and it is a behemoth. A collection of nearly 600 sneakers from Nike (including various colorways of the Air Max 270, one of the biggest releases of the year), Adidas, Saucony, New Balance, Brooks, Converse, Vans and a dozen more, the sale went live yesterday, but there’s still plenty of options with full (or near full) size run available. Styles range from flashy to low-key, and deals from 30 to 70 percent off. Make sure to switch sizing and delivery to US, and happy shopping. — Will Price
LG C8 65-inch OLED TV (2018)
Save $1,500: LG’s 2018 C8 series of 4K OLED TVs are expensive. When they were released this past spring, a 65-inch model was going for $3,500. A few months later, however, that price has dropped over to around $2,997 — that’s over $1,500 off. But today eBay is running a deal on a brand-new C8 for $2,009 – that’s almost $1,500 off. Yes, it’s still expensive, but it’s not that bad considering that we’re talking about LG’s top-of-the-line 4K OLED TV. And LG makes the best 4K OLED TVs. — Tucker Bowe
Allbirds Wool Runners
Save 33%: Allbirds’ second shoe, called Tree, has an upper made of eucalyptus pulp and laces made of recycled plastic bottles. Its latest is a reimagined sole made of a material it calls SweetFoam, which is made mostly of sugarcane and is billed to be the first carbon-negative EVA (the foam material that gives running shoes their signature bounce and cushion). But it’s still Allbirds’ first shoe, the Wool Runners, that are most often spotted in airports, offices and every place in between. They’re supremely comfortable and light, and at the moment they’re also on sale at eBay for 33 percent off in three colors. — Tanner Bowden
Arc’Teryx Atom LT Hoody Sale
Save 35%: We call it the Best Do-It-All jacket, and it’s simply the best in design and function for us. As a no-frills insulation layer, it shines, no matter how many excursions you take. Abrasion- and wind-resistant increase your output as an athlete, and if you want to wear it apres, no one is stopping you. Today it’s on sale for 35 percent off the original price. One might call it a steal: just $168 for a jacket that’s usually $259. — Meg Lappe
Prana Mojo Shorts
Save 45%: Nobody likes buying shorts. We wear them when the weather gets so warm that pants become intolerable, or for active pursuits like running and hiking. In either case, the purchase is made more out of necessity than desire (like the kind we harbor for things like selvage denim blue jeans). A quality pair can be expensive, too. Prana’s Mojo Short is typically pricey at $50, but they’re currently marked down by 45% to just $27 at Backcountry. — Tanner Bowden
Save 15%: Barton Bands produces some reasonably priced options and, what’s more, is offering a 15 percent discount if you buy three straps or more and use the code WATCHTOBERFEST18. Pick between canvas, rubber, nylon, leather and more, and you can even get some quick-release options that cut out the need for a spring bar tool. — Andrew Connor
Save 44%: For crisp mornings and frigid nights, the simple pleasure of a cozy pair of slippers is hard to beat.

Made with suede uppers and rubber soles, these comfy styles cost as little as $25. — John Zientek
