Dyson Vacuums, Fans & More
Save 20-70%: Today on Ebay, more than 50 Dyson vacuums, air purifiers and fans are marked down a minimum of 20 percent off. Pickings include the classic Multifloor vacuum for less than $200, the best-value cordless vacuum for $150 and a summer-ready, HEPA-equipped fan for an all-time low price.
The lot is a mix of manufacturer refurbished items and new items. Use code JUMP2DYSON for the additional 20 percent off (it stacks with existing discounts, too). — Will Price
Suunto MC-2 Compass
Save 42%: Sure, the Google Maps app on your phone pinpoint your exact location within seconds, but when there’s no service available or your battery dies, there’s no stand-in for a good old fashioned compass. On its own, a compass will show where North, South and every direction between are. Paired with a map (and some knowledge — REI has a great guide on how to use a compass), a compass acts just like that app on your phone. It’s a smart thing to keep in your hiking backpack for those just-in-case moments, and right now a great one from Suunto, a brand known for its high-end GPS watches, is on sale at Massdrop for 42 percent off. — Tanner Bowden
Sony WH-H900N Noise-Canceling Headphones
Save $100: The Sony WH-H900N is essentially a less premium and more affordable alternative to the Sony WH-1000XM3, which is arguably the best noise-canceling headphones you can buy. The two headphones look very similar, but the WH-1000XM3 is more feature-packed and boasts better noise-canceling skills. On the flip side, the WH-H900N is way more affordable today.
Spinnaker Cahill Automatic Dive Watch
Save 68%: Spinnaker’s Cahill automatic dive watch is a decent value at its retail price of $410, but currently marked down by 68% to $130, there’s little reason not to pull the trigger if one of the three available versions grabs your attention. — Zen Love
16-Inch Knife Block
Save 50%: In 2013, the National Sanitation Foundation conducted a series of studies aimed at identifying the grimiest areas of our homes. Amongst spatulas, ice makers, can openers and your refrigerator meat compartment, the knife block made the list. Luckily, the alternative is better in literally every way.
Knife bars — like Modern Innovations’s discounted 16-inch option — are magnetic strips you fix to a wall or the side of the fridge. You don’t run the risk of bacteria growth with them and they cost significantly less than a block of wood. Plus, they don’t dull your knives. Cook’s Illustrated found knives stored in a block dulled far more quickly than other methods of storage (they recommend knife bars as well).
Pick up a full-sized knife bar for $17 on Amazon today. — Will Price
