MONDAY, MARCH 25
Save up to 40%: Right now you can pick up a pair of Nike’s best running shoes, the Epic React Flyknit 2 and the Zoom Pegasus Turbo . Each pair is over 30 percent off in a few colors. Both are solid workhorse training shoes, weighing in at 8.4 ounces. For my last half marathon training block, I rotated running in both for speed workouts and long runs, and ran the entire 13.1 miles in the Pegasus Turbos. If you’re running a shorter distance, say 5K or 10K, the Epic React Flyknit 2 is a bouncy choice — you’ll feel like you’re flying through the miles.
Right now, on nike.com there’s a large number of sizes in a few colors for each shoe, but shop while you can as Nike’s gear tends to sell out quickly. If you don’t need a new pair of running shoes there are also a plethora of gym and everyday sneakers and apparel on sale for up to 40 percent off. — Meg Lappe
ELAC Debut 2.0 B6.2 Bookshelf Speakers
Save Over $100: The ELAC Debut 2.0 B6.2 is one of our favorite passive bookshelf speakers. Designed by famed loudspeaker designer Andrew Jones, who is known for his award-winning work at KEF, Pioneer and TAD, the Debut 2.0 B6.2 speakers are able to produce a strong and clear sound. They have a 6.5-inch Aramid fiber woofer and a 1-inch cloth dome tweeter, and because the bass port is on the front of the speaker, they can be placed against a wall and still sound great. We named the Debut 2.0 B6.2 as one of the “best bookshelf speakers under $300” in our recent bookshelf speaker buying guide. Normally just under $300, Amazon is selling the Debut 2.0 B6.2 for $197, which is the lowest we’ve seen these speakers going for. If you’re looking to get a great pair of Andrew Jones-designed passive speakers, here’s your chance.

Jabra Elite 65t True Wireless Earbuds
Save $40: The Jabra Elite 65t is one of the best true wireless earbuds you can buy right now. They sound great, fit snug, and, with a four-mic array, they’re better for taking calls than most alternative true wireless earbuds; for more information, you can read our full review of the Jabra Elite 65t, here. Best Buy is currently selling them for $150, but you can get the same earbuds, albeit manufacturer refurbished, on eBay for $110, which is still a good deal (despite not being nearly as good). You’re saving $40.
Breville Barista Express
Save $120: To the frustration of many would-be espresso nerds, getting into espresso is no easy task. And by no easy task, we mean it’s expensive as hell. At a bare minimum, you need a decent espresso maker, a scale and a high-end burr grinder. That’s why all-in-one espresso makers equipped with scales and grinders represent the best value in espresso makers. And one of those machines, Breville’s Barista Express, is on sale today.
The usually $600 machine looks confusing but isn’t — turn the power on, choose single or double, press the corresponding brew button (denoted by symbols of one and two cups of coffee) and espresso is made in under a minute. Plus, Breville’s steam wand makes lush, foamy milk without any requisite skill or know-how. Get one for $120 off today at Amazon. —Will Price
Extra Savings On Already-Discounted Items
Save 46% Today J.Crew has marked down its classic striped anorak by 46 percent, making the already attractive casual spring layer that much harder to pass up.
The cotton layer features button cuffs, a zippered neck, and front pocket as well as drawstrings at the hood and waist. All of this comes together to make the loose-wearing casual layer an ideal pick for the slow but steady transition from winter to spring. And today, thanks to the Sale on Sale event at J.Crew, buyers can get the jacket for half the already steeply discounted price. —J.D. DiGiovanni
TUESDAY, MARCH 26
Patagonia Micro Puff Sale
Save 20%: Last year, we awarded the Patagonia Micro Puff jacket our editor’s choice award for best synthetic down jacket. We were impressed by the weight, water-repellent nylon shell and use of a unique baffling construction that prevents insulation from bunching. The PlumaFill insulation ensures warmth during some of the coldest days. Right now, you can pick up this jacket and save over $50. Just use the code TAKE20MARCH to get 20-percent off the Micro Puff at Backcountry. The code is applicable to one full-priced item, so if the Micro Puff isn’t for you, there are plenty of other awesome jackets to choose from.

Persol PO9714 Foldable Sunglasses
Save 80%: If you want a screaming deal on a pair of iconic Italian sunglasses, don’t sleep on this deal. Right now at Massdrop, you can save 80 percent on the classic PO9714 folding sunglasses from Persol. The style comes in three colors — red tortoise, yellow tortoise and madreterra — and costs just $85 (the shades will ship on April 16).
The PO9714 is a modern take on the brand’s famous 9649 style (made famous by Steve McQueen) and features a handmade acetate frame with signature arrow hinges and a keyhole bridge. Made in Italy, the style folds for easy storage and comes with a carrying case. If you’ve been waiting to buy a great pair of shades, don’t wait — this deal ends in a couple of days. — John Zientek
REI Camping Bundle Sale
Save $75: Right now, you can pick up a three-season tent, the REI Co-op Passage 2-person tent with a Stratus insulated air pad and Trail Pod 30 sleeping bag all together for just $200. If you’re looking to start camping this spring, this set has everything you need. Pick a spot, book it and take those vacation days.
The tent weighs just over five pounds and comfortably sleeps two. The floor is water-resistant for those dew-covered mornings, and thanks to the sleeping bag, you’ll stay warm in case the temperatures drop down to 30F.
You’ll save $75 on the bundle when you buy the tent, pad and sleeping bag together, plus if you’re an REI member, you’ll get 10 percent back that you can spend in April.

Tons of Grills
Save Up to $200: Today, for reasons unknown, the internet is riddled with deals on grills. Not deals on just any grills, but grills we genuinely like. And not just deals on grills we like, but grills in almost every category of grilling. We’re talking Weber’s well-reviewed entry-level gas grill, a stowable, cast-aluminum charcoal grill, a wood pellet grill-smoker combo and more. We’ve picked our favorite of the lot below. —Will Price
Kershaw Shuffle Folding Knife
Save Over 50%: Kershaw is a manufacturer well known by people who rely on their blades to get a job done, and the brand’s Shuffle folding knife offers more than just a clean cut. A bottle opener is built into the back of the knife handle; the butt of the knife is shaped to double as a flathead screwdriver, and can also be used as a lanyard or keychain attachment. The small size and ergonomically-shaped grip make this a pocketable piece of gear that can work for anybody’s EDC kit, and today you can get two for the price of one thanks to this Massdrop deal.
Get yours before they’re gone — after all, the stock’s going to sell out twice as fast. — Andy Frakes
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 27
MWC GG-W-113 Military Watch
Save 10%: The GG-W-113 is one of the classic American military field watches produced in large quantities for servicemen during the Vietnam War. These were small (by modern standards), hand-wound field watches made to a strict specification that evolved over time, and they have an instantly recognizable, no-nonsense aesthetic that has made them beloved by watch collectors and lovers of militaria. — Oren Hartov
Lucchese Grayson Chelsea Boots
Save 55%:Founded in 1883, Lucchese is one of America’s premier boot makers. Originally located in San Antonio, the company is now headquartered in El Paso. While it produces some entry-level level boots in Mexico, the brand still makes its flagship footwear in Texas. Styles include numerous cowboy boots, naturally, along with a few complimentary silhouettes.
Of the latter, the Grayson Chelsea boots are worth checking out. The boot features a black suede upper, a back heel loop, a leather outsole and side gore panels. Normally $745, the Grayson is now 55 percent off at Zappos and costs $335. If you’re looking for a versatile boot for everyday wear, check this style out before it’s gone. — John Zientek
Bodum Pour-Over Coffee Brewer
Save 50%: Though we hold drip coffee machines in high regard, any coffee diehard will tell you the purest, most flexible way to brew coffee is in a pour-over brewer. Pour-over brewing allows the brewer to adjust water temperature, volume, pouring pattern and even number of pours cup-to-cup. The rabbit hole is deep.
Under Armour Running Socks Sale
Save 25%: Under Armour’s run cushion socks are on sale right now for 25 percent off. These lightweight socks hold up after numerous wash cycles and maintain their cushion and don’t get pilly like some no-show socks tend to do. There’s added cushion under the toes and around the arch so feet are protected from your very first step. Whether you’re hitting the road for one mile, five or your last long run before the Boston marathon, these socks will handle the challenge. I’ve had a pair now for over four months, and they’re one of the first that I’ll reach for when I’m hopping on the treadmill or heading on a run (now that it’s finally warm out). Pick up a pair of the black, orange, white and blue colors for just $9.75 on Amazon today. — Meg Lappe
Osprey Travel Duffel
Save 20%: Luggage has always presented a kind of Catch 22. While it may help organize and carry both gear and clothing in transit, it becomes a bit of a pain to store when it’s not in use. Osprey’s UI Stuff Duffel solves that problem thanks to a special easy to stuff design — and today it is 20% off.
Made from a lightweight but sturdy 40D ripstop stitching, the duffel bag features 30L of storage and a padded shoulder sling for easy carrying. When you are done huffing around stuff for the day, the bag can be packed into itself and thrown in a drawer or glovebox. Whether you’re looking for a gym bag or something to travel with, this duffel is more than up to the challenge. — J.D. DiGiovanni
THURSDAY, MARCH 28
Save 35%: If you don’t have a reliable raincoat, now’s the time to buy. With rainy spring weather already forecast, a lightweight, waterproof jacket is something of a necessity. And if you’re looking for a good option, head over to East Dane today. You can save 35 percent on a range of reliable raincoats from Stutterheim. The Swedish stalwart makes classic styles that now cost less than $150 — that means you won’t break the bank to stay dry this season. — John Zientek
Clif Bar Shots, Hydration Mixes and Energy Snacks
Save up to 30%: Clif Bar, which makes some of our favorite pre, during and post-workout snacks are currently on sale at The Feed. Now’s a great time to stock up on Clif shots, energy bars, recovery mixes and our favorite for fueling mid-run, Clif Bloks. Each energy snack is measured to provide everything an athlete needs when working out: protein, sugars, carbs and salt. Each will help your body replenish the nutrients lost during exercise — and they taste good, too. — Meg Lappe
GSI Outdoors JavaPress
Save 20%: There’s something wonderful about enjoying a freshly-brewed cup of coffee in the wilderness. All of the pleasures that the beverage imparts when experienced in the comforts of home or at a favorite cafe are multiplied at a campsite, even when high-end barista machinery is unavailable.
Without a countertop appliance, coffee making becomes a modified and slightly more humble process. However, there is a range of lightweight and packable brewers available, from French press to pour over, but GSI’s JavaPress is our favorite for its ability to serve multiple cups in one batch and for its easy-to-clean construction. It’s currently 20 percent off at Backcountry when you enter the code TAKE20MARCH at checkout.
Note: Backcountry’s discount code applies to any one full-priced item, so if you’re more of a tea person, or want something like a new rain jacket or cooler, you can get 20 percent those things too. Remember, you can only use the discount once. — Tanner Bowden
Samsung QN65Q9FN 4K TV
Save Over $800: There are big TVs, and then there are big TVs — this 65-inch Samsung QN65Q9FN verges toward the latter. There’s also 4K screen resolution, smart interface, Dolby Digital Plus integrated audio and Samsung’s flagship quantum-dot QLED display technology, which claims more than a billion shades of color in addition to the best possible overall brightness and contrast.
On the average day, all that tech would cost you a lot — the TV sells for $2,800 on Samsung’s website. But thanks to an eBay sale, you can get the complete package, factory-sealed and delivered, for just $1,949. — Andy Frakes
FRIDAY, MARCH 29
Wolf Viceroy Watch Winder
Save $319: While you don’t per se need a watch winder, its a nice accessory to have if you own multiple automatic watches. The problem is that even winders on the more affordable end of the spectrum can cost a surprisingly large amount of money, which is why it’s always nice to see a Wolf winder on sale. The winder’s MSRP is $499, but right now you can get it for just $180. — Zen Love
Reebok 50% Off Sale
Save 50%: Today, you can pick up a pair of Reebok’s best-selling CrossFit Nano 8 gym shoe and the Floatride Run — both on sale for over $70 off. Each sneaker is just a tad over $50, which is a steal for a sneaker that’s a winner in our Best Gym Sneakers guide. While the Nano sneakers are built for CrossFit, they make great gym sneakers, whether you prefer lifting weights and using machines over rope climbs and handstand pushups.
The best news of all is that Reebok’s massive spring sale doesn’t just include sneakers, it’s not just sneakers — you can take an additional 50 percent off all sale items including apparel and Classics. Be sure to use code EXTRA50 at checkout. — Meg Lappe
Mystery Ranch Backpacks
Save up to 39%: Mystery Ranch may be better known for the heavy-duty packs worn by members of the military and backcountry firefighters, but the lightweight In and Out, which is currently 18 percent off at Huckberry, meets our expectations of the company, if for different reasons.
The In and Out is collapsible, folding into itself to become the size of a small pillow (and you might use it as such on a long flight or bus ride). But, unlike many other minimalist travel backpacks, it remains full-featured with 100-denier Cordura fabric, an aerospace mesh back panel and pockets to accommodate everything from a water bottle to an ice axe. For these reasons, it’s our pick for the best minimalist daypack for hiking, but it’ll serve travelers who prefer city sidewalks to trails just as well.
Repro Military Sneakers from Various Countries
Save 20%:If you’re looking for a new pair of sneakers for spring and don’t want the ubiquitous styles offered at big-box stores, consider picking up a military trainer. Japanese footwear brand Reproduction of Found specializes in reproduction military trainers from a range of different countries and for a limited time, they’re on sale at Need Supply Co. Pick up familiar silhouettes from countries like Canada and the U.S. or step out of the box with styles from Russia and China. No matter the option, you’ll get a well-made sneaker that will differentiate you from the crowd. — John Zientek
