Herman Miller Aeron
Save 51%: By virtually any measure, Herman Miller’s Aeron task chair is one of, if not the, greatest desk chair of all-time. Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick’s design features supreme adjustability: seat height, arm height, lumbar support, reclining tension and forward and rear tilt locks. It was the first successful integration of airy mesh into task chair design. Shoot, it even earned a spot in the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection. Fair or not, any company that releases a high-end office chair today must bear comparison to the Aeron.
Today, the Aeron is 51 percent off on Ebay. These specific products are open-box models, which means they’re somewhere between new and used — so it’s fair to approach with caution (it may be worth contacting the seller before dropping close to $500). That said, this is about as affordable as an Aeron will go for. — Will Price
Wayfair Labor Day Clearance
Save Up to 65%: Like buying a sweater in March, the delayed gratification of buying patio gear at the tale-end of summer can be worth the cash saved. Part of the site’s Labor Day Clearance, Wayfair’s Outdoor Sale is the right place to start.
Save Up to $600: Available upholstered and in leather, Burrow’s sofas ship in pieces that can be assembled or disassembled in about 15 minutes, making it the perfect renter’s sofa. The frame is birch wood, the legs are oak and there’s a nifty charging cable built into the base. While not as low as Ikea, it’s prices are fair (full-size couches start at $1,395). Now and until September 9, those prices are a bit better.
The company’s Labor Day sale is now live, offering sitewide discounts that scale with your order total — $50 off for $500 orders, $150 off for $1,100 orders and all the way up to $600 off for $2,600 orders. The sale is added to your cart using the code that corresponds to your order total. Codes are listed on the site’s homepage. — Will Price
Bell Race Star Helmets
Save Up to 50%: Summer may be winding down, but that doesn’t mean you need to roll your motorcycle back into the garage. There’s still plenty of time to hit the road and ride. Which means there’s no reason to wait to invest in one of those new helmets you’ve had your eye on for a while now.
And isn’t it your lucky day: Right now, RevZilla is offering big savings on Bell helmets equipped with Roland Sands Design liveries, with some on sale for as much as 50% off. These helmets bring all the trademark protection and security you’d expect from a legendary name like Bell, but with the retro cool brought to the table by motorcycle racer-turned-bike builder-and-accessorizer Roland Sands. A good motorcycle helmet deal is usually sure to perk any rider up — but being able to grab lids with these fresh looks for hundreds of dollars off sticker, well, that’s better than your morning coffee. — Will Sabel Courtney
Save 10%: It’s not enough for your bike to perform well. It should both sound and look cool as well. If going fast means sacrificing the other two qualities, what’s the point? That’s where the Austrian company Remus comes in.
Remus’s custom race-grade aftermarket exhausts are engineered to boost power delivery and torque, provide the right resonant sound and match your bike’s OEM aesthetic, all at the same time. Right now, you can get a great deal on them. RevZilla currently has a 10 percent off sale on all of their Remus brand products, from sound inserts to full HexaCone exhaust systems running into the thousands of dollars.
This offer can net you significant savings, but you have to act fast. While most sales this weekend will let you dawdle through Labor Day, RevZilla‘s Remus discount ends on Sunday. — Tyler Duffy
Outdoors and Fitness
Lululemon Summer Sale
Save $50: While I’d argue you can never have too much of a great thing, it seems like Lululemon might disagree. The brand made too many sweat-wicking workout pieces, and now it’s all on sale. Everything from backpacks to tees, joggers to sneakers are all offered at discounted prices — most of which is on final sale.
With the scorching hot temperatures slowing down and fall just around the coner, Lululemon has the freshest gear to keep you dry, stench-free and looking good. Some of our top-rated running shirts and gym shorts are included in the massive sale, so get them while you can. — Meg Lappe
Save 25%: Osprey has earned its clout amongst hikers and backpackers both hardcore and casual. And for good reason, too — its bags are some of the most comfortable we’ve carried. Beyond that, the company consistently finds the middle ground between lightweight minimalism and useful features. Right now, most of them are also on sale with a nice 25 percent chunk taken off the price.
The collection of discounted packs includes the award-winning Aether AG, a bag that’s ideal for multi-day treks and foreign travel. There’s also the smaller-volume Stratos, which is our choice for the best daypack for hiking. But Osprey makes more than hiking bags. Its line includes duffels, general-purpose travel packs and the newer Arcane, a town-oriented bag that’s perfect for commuting and school — that bag is 25 percent off, too. — Tanner Bowden
Patagonia Micro Puff Jacket
Save $100: Since it came out in the fall of 2017, Patagonia’s Micro Puff Jacket has been our choice for the best synthetic insulated jacket. Simply put, it strikes the perfect balance of warmth and weight (it’s the lightest insulated jacket that Patagonia has made to date). The secret to its innovation is a new type of insulation called PlumaFill that’s made up of down-mimicking polyester fibers that are secured together in one continuous, fluffy line, which zig-zags around beneath its ripstop nylon shell.
The Micro Puff has been such a success that Patagonia used it as the base for the Micro Puff Storm, a waterproof version of the jacket that came out in Fall 2018. Patagonia also recently released the Macro Puff, a heavier and warmer puffy jacket that uses a heartier helping of PlumaFill (and will likely be in as high demand as the Micro Puff).
That Patagonia has released variations of the Micro Puff by no means makes the jacket obsolete. If anything, it’s further verification that it, and it’s fluffy filling, work pretty damn well. Not just in winter either — the Micro Puff’s lightweight warmth makes it ideal for cool autumn nights and mornings as well as mountain adventures, too. Right now the Micro Puff is 40 percent off in past season colors — a savings of $100. — Tanner Bowden
Rhone Gym Short Sale
Save 60%: A crucial aspect of any workout is comfort — not just how your body feels, but what you’re wearing. It’s why the perpetually active can debate the merits of even the simplest piece of clothing, like a pair of shorts: details like pocket placement, waistband material and whether they include a built-in liner means the discerning consumer will find significant variability among available products.
Rhone tackles the finer points of workout shorts — for the gym, for running, for yoga and more — in creative (and comfortable) ways. Many of our favorite models, including those preferred by professional trainers, are currently on sale for an extra 40 percent off with code SaveSummer40. You can snag a pair of $78 shorts for just $32. There are a plethora of colors and styles available during Rhone’s surplus summer sale, so get them while you can. — Tanner Bowden
The North Face Summit L3 Ventrix Hoodie
Save $65: The North Face was late to ultra-breathable active insulation game. But when it ultimately made an entry with Ventrix in Fall 2017, it was easy to forgive the lag. Like other synthetic insulation, you can think of Ventrix as an alternative to down that’s more water-resistant, if a little less packable. But The North Face made sure to make it different; the polyester fluff is breathable because it has laser-cut perforations that open and close with motion. The idea here is that a jacket like the Summit L3 Ventrix Hoodie, for instance, works to keep you cooler during activity and warmer during rest.
It works remarkably well. We’ve skied, hiked and commuted in Ventrix in various forms cooked up by The North Face. The Summit L3 Ventrix Hoodie tops the list — and earned a spot in our ranking of the best synthetic down jackets available — and right now you can get it for 25 percent (that’s $65) off. Not bad, considering cold temperatures are only weeks away. — Tanner Bowden
Levi’s Jeans, Jackets and More
Save 40%:Right now, Levi’s is offering 40 percent off sitewide. This is a great chance for those looking to bolster their fall wardrobe with some new garments from the iconic brand. Though some exclusions apply, there are tons of jeans, shirts, jackets and other great wardrobe staples up for grabs. Click through and use code SURPRISE at checkout, then tell a friend. — John Zientek

Choose from crew neck and hoodie styles — both are made from a hemp-organic cotton blend — in a range of versatile colors. The styles are preshrunk and feature rib knit cuffs and hems. The best part is, they’re actually pretty affordable — don’t sleep on this deal. — John Zientek
Dr. Martens Chelsea Boots
Save 50%: If you’ve been dreaming of a new pair of Chelsea boots, now’s your chance to score a classic pair at a great price. The Dr. Martens Graeme Chelsea boots are now 50 percent off at Nordstrom Rack.

They’re available in four versatile colors and a range of sizes, but if you see a pair you like, act fast — this deal won’t be around long. — John Zientek
Limited-Edition Gore-tex Clarks Wallabee Boots
Save 50%: These boots, a collaboration between End and Clarks, feature a modern pixelated camo leather upper and Vibram rubber outsole, with one pair available in the eye-catching “Earth Pixel” colorway and another pair in the more subdued “Gray Pixel.” Both pairs sport reflective 3M laces and branded pull tabs with military-style attachment loops along the heel. And thanks to a Gore-tex membrane built into the boot, you can stand in ankle-deep water without getting your socks wet.
While these boots are normally $235, End has a full-size run of each for just $119 today. — John Zientek

Prices start at just $418 and there are plenty of sizes still available, so if you see something you like, act fast. — John Zientek
Vizio 2018 65-Inch 4K TV
Save $200: Labor Day is right around the corner, meaning you can find some pretty big deals on some big-ticket items. If you’re looking for a good 65-inch 4K TV that won’t kill your wallet, you can get a pretty stellar deal on Vizio’s 2018 D-Series by visiting Walmart’s website: the normally $700 4K TV is on sale for less than $500. A quick refresher: The Vizio D-Series is the company’s most budget-friendly and entry-level line of 4K smart TVs. It’s compatible with Google Assistant and has Chromecast built-in, meaning if you have a Google Home smart speaker you can use your voice to control the TV (switch between apps and lower/raise volume). You can also cast YouTube videos or Spotify playlists straight from your smartphone to your TV.

Fender Limited-Edition Player Stratocaster
Save $125: If you’re looking to purchase your first Strat, or just want another workhorse guitar to add to the rotation, head over to Guitar Center today. Currently, you can save $125 on a Limited-Edition Player Stratocaster. This model has an alder body, 22-fret modern-C shaped maple neck and a 2-point fulcrum tremolo bridge. In a nod to David Gilmour’s guitar used on classic Pink Floyd albums, it has a black finish, black pickguard and white pickups.
Other features are geared towards to frequent player: it has comfortable medium jumbo frets, a synthetic bone nut, vintage-style bent steel saddles and sealed die-cast tuners. Made in Mexico, this guitar normally costs $675 — act fast and you can pick it up for $550. — John Zientek
Nintendo NES Classic Edition
Save $30: Nintendo released the NES Classic Edition, a miniature version of the NES console from 1985, in 2016 and at that time it was nearly impossible to find – demand was too high. Fast forward several years and it’s a little easier to buy, although for an uptick charge. Listed as $60 on Nintendo’s website, but in order to buy an NES Classic Edition you have to order from a third-party seller like Amazon, which is currently selling models for $80. For a little bit of a deal, however, check out eBay: it’s selling refurbished (by Nintendo) models for just $50. That’s $30 cheaper than what they’re going for on Amazon. — Tucker Bowe
Bose SoundSport Free
Save $80: When they were released around two years ago, the Bose SoundSport Free were selling for $250 a pop, but Bose had since lowered the price to $200; this is the current price of the SoundSport Free on Amazon (see here). However, you can currently get a pair of SoundSport Free that have been “factory renewed” on Bose’s website for $120. That’s significantly cheaper than AirPods. It’s true that Bose is selling “factory renewed” models, but every product comes with a 30-day trial period — if you’re not happy with the product you can return it and get a full refund.
— Tucker Bowe
Save $16: The Mighty Vibe ($85) is a little screen-less music player, sort of like an old iPod Shuffle, that’s specifically designed to work with Spotify. If you’re a Spotify Premium subscriber, you can download playlists and podcasts to the Mighty Vibe and then listen to them offline. This makes the Mighty Vibe a particularly useful gadget for runners (who are Spotify Premium subscribers) who don’t want to bring their smartphone on their run; it’s not only small, but it has a built-in clip that you can attach to your shirt or shorts. Right now, you can get a pretty good deal on the Mighty Vibe. Just enter the code “MIGHTYCHEAP” at checkout, and the normally $86 music player will cost you just $70. — Tucker Bowe
Goal Zero Sherpa 100AC
Save $60: Goal Zero is one of the biggest names in portable power, and right now through September 2 it’s having a big Labor Day sale – you can save 20 percent on some of its most popular products. There are deals on its large power station, the Yeti 1400 Lithium Power Station, as well as its portable solar panel, the Nomad 7 Plus. The one product that sticks out the most, however, is the Sherpa 100AC. The portable power banks is a beast, with a huge 25,600mAh capacity and a number of that allow you to charge everything from your smartphone to a laptop. Normally $300, Goal Zero is selling the Sherpa 100AC for $60 off right now. — Tucker Bowe
Seiko Prospex “Monster” Diver
Save 36%: In the brand’s well-respected Prospex family, the handsome new Monster offers the classic bang-for-buck automatic watch Seiko’s known for, but with a distinctly mature presence.

That brings both awesome versions down by more than $175 from around $500 to just a little over $300. — Zen Love
Marathon General Purpose Field Watch

The General Purpose field watch features tritium tube illumination on the hands and a 34mm case. While this may sound small by modern standards, the watch wears extremely well and its 12mm depth offsets somewhat the smaller width. — Oren Hartov
