Timex Ironman Digital Watch
Save 40%: If you’re into throwback digital watches, don’t miss out on the Timex x Todd Snyder Ironman watch. This reissue was first developed in 1984 in partnership with the Ironman triathlon and features 200-meter water resistance, an Indiglo night light, a 100-hour chronograph, a 99-lap counter and a 24-hour countdown time. Though the contemporary model features an enlarged face and dial, it’s just as lightweight and durable as the original. — Oren Hartov
Roomba Robot Vacuum
Save $420 The robot vacuum market has been dominated by iRobot’s Roombas since their introduction in 2002. But the company’s domination in cleaning robot tech comes at a price — a really, really high price.
It should be noted that this particular sale model is a manufacturer refurb, which the seller notes has “been professionally inspected, tested, and cleaned. 100% Functional, cosmetically will show very little to no signs of usage.” It’s $420 off right now. —Will Price

Rubbermaid Brute Storage Bins
Save up to 56%: When you live in a 500-square-foot apartment, a shortage of space forces you to get creative. The problem escalates when you’re a runner/biker/hiker/backpacker/skier — kitchen cabinets are for cookware and coffee grinders, not down jackets — to the point of potentially damaging interpersonal relationships between you and those who might be sharing the space. Even when closets are in abundance, outdoor gear storage should be carefully considered; you’re going to need some bins.
It’s hard to tell by exactly how much the bins are marked down. On some websites, they cost as much as $50, and the smaller 14-gallon version is more expensive at the moment. In any case, it’s one of the best bins available for taking your outdoor gear storage up a notch, and it costs just $23 at Amazon and $22 at Lowes. — Tanner Bowden
Patagonia’s Latest Deal Marks the Beginning of a New Era
Save $30 Right now folks can get about $30 off Patagonia’s popular pullover sweater-knit polyester fleeces. In addition to being made from comfortable fabric, these cold-weather items feature a chest pocket, flat seam construction and raglan sleeves for a snug fit. — J.D. DiGiovanni
Sony A8F 65-inch OLED TV
Save $800: The Sony A8F series is the company’s line of super high-end 4K OLED TVs — it’s the best Sony makes. If you’re in the market for a 4K OLED TV, meaning you want the absolute best, the Sony A8F is definitely an option you should be considering. Sony, alongside LG, is one of the industry leaders for 4K OLED TVs. And even though all OLED TVs are pretty expensive, Sony just dropped the price of its 65-inch A8F. Amazon is selling them for just under $3K, which is $800 less than what had previously been going for. Best Buy is selling them for basically the same price, too. It’s the lowest price that we’ve seen the A8F going for.
