Dyson Upright Vacuum
Save $330: The headline says it all. The Dyson Ball Upright vac, equipped with the cyclone suction technology you’ve no doubt heard about in TV commercials for nearly a decade, is $330 cheaper than normal. Put another way, you’re saving exactly one 5.5-quart Le Creuset by buying.
It should be noted that these Dysons are refurbs, but importantly that they are manufacturer refurbs, meaning Dyson has received them, patched them up, rigorously tested them and released them anew. — Will Price
Lodge Cast-Iron Skillet
Save $15: Point blank: there’s not an American-made piece of cast-iron out there that is a better deal at retail price than a Lodge. The only widely-available producer of American cast-iron cookware has been cranking out all manner of cookware from the same factory in South Pittsburgh, Tennessee for more than 120 years. When treated right, their skillets can last a lifetime for what a trip to the movies costs. Lodge’s 9-inch skillet will fit a large steak just fine, is more maneuverable than its larger cousins and takes up less precious cabinet space. It also happens to be the perfect size for a dual serving of crispy, hearty breakfast hash. Just saying.
Right now, the 9-inch skillet is discounted to a whopping $9 — that’s $15 under its usual price and the most affordable we’ve ever seen it. — Will Price
One of Our Favorite Motorcycle Gear Brands Is On Sale Right Now
Save Up to 50%: The name may be a little bit extra, as the kids say these days, but there’s no arguing that Rev’It! makes some dynamite motorcycle riding gear. From armored jackets to protective pants and tough gloves to bike-ready boots, Rev’It! cranks out solid apparel designed for riders seeking quality products made for the long haul — both in terms of miles and years. And right now, our old friends over at RevZilla are holding a big closeout sale on Rev’It! gear right now. — Will Sabel Courtney
There’s an Insane Sale On Top-of-the-Line Motorcycle Helmets Right Now
Save Up to 53%: Your motorcycle gear isn’t something to take for granted. What you wear when you ride can literally save your skin, so it’s worth investing a little extra money to make sure you’re protected as well as possible.
However, while the motorcycle lifestyle can have a tantalizingly low cost of entry compared to owning a car, buying the necessary protective clothing — pants, jackets, boots and especially helmets — can quickly run up a steep tab, making the cheaper, lesser options more attractive, even if they may not be quite as good.
Right now, however, is the time to upgrade your head protection if there ever was one. Right now over at Revzilla, there’s an insane sale on top-of-the-line motorcycle helmets. You can save up to $800 on select top-tier motorcycle helmets from brands like Schuberth, AGV and Bell. If you’ve always wanted the performance and protection from one of the best motorcycle helmets available today (and really, why wouldn’t you want that?), now’s your chance to save a few hundred dollars and upgrade your lid game at the same time. –Bryan Campbell
The Perfect All-Weather Motorcycle Jacket Is $200 Off, But Act Fast
Save 35%: Good (or bad) news, everyone: Autumn is officially here. On the bad side, that means the balmy days of summer are now officially behind us until 2020, and the chill of winter lies dead ahead, like an iceberg in the path of our Titanic. On the plus side: At long last, it’s fall — the season of football, crisp air, fiery foliage, Halloween and Thanksgiving.
The seasonal transitional also means that, for many of us, it’s time to change out our riding gear for something a little heavier. Then again, if you have the Dainese Corbin D-Dry motorcycle jacket, you don’t really need to. This cowhide coat is well-ventilated enough for summertime riding, thanks to large mesh panels, but a thermal liner can be popped in to add insulation for cold-weather rides. And while the leather can wick away water just fine on its own, there’s a waterproof D-Dry membrane for really rainy conditions. Mix and match the combinations as needed, and you’ve got a Dainese jacket good for spring, summer, winter and fall alike.
And for the next few days, you can snap up this riding jacket for $200 off at RevZilla as part of their weekly sale. — Will Sabel Courtney
Outdoors and Fitness
Arc’teryx Cerium LT Hooded Down Jacket
Save $114: For months now, we’ve been stressing that the best time to score cold-weather gear, particularly awesome down jackets, is when it’s not cold out. Today serves up yet more proof, in that the legendary Arc’teryx Cerium LT Hooded Down Jacket is currently on sale for a whopping $114 off at Backcountry. I have the non-hooded version of this jacket, and it’s just about perfect for fall weather — and with proper layering, winter weather as well.
Dropping from $379 to $265 makes for quite a steal — as long as you’re not too picky. Don’t worry, the jacket is available in small through extra large. However, only one of the 10 colors is so sharply discounted: Deep Cove, which is sort of a light blue. But honestly, it’s a pretty good-looking color, and a month or so from now — if not sooner — you’ll be stoked to have it in your wardrobe.
Note: A couple other colors, Nocturne (a midnight blue) and Neptune (a sea green), are discounted to $305 in select sizes. — Steve Mazzucchi
Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2
Save $92: We are several weeks into fall now, but it still feels like summer. Which means we are looking for any excuse to get out and soak up the sun. And it’s even more of a thrill to do so with a brand-new pair of running shoes — especially when you can score them at an awesome discount. Nike’s helping make that possible with the promo code “SPRINT” which scores you 25 percent off select items through Thursday.
Use this link to see exactly which items qualify for the discount code, and you’ll see it’s especially runner-friendly, in part because a lot of these shoes are already discounted. Examples include the Epic React Flyknit 2 (up to $75 off), Air VaporMax 2019 ($76 off), and Air VaporMax Flyknit 3 (up to $76 off).
The sweetest savings, though, apply to the Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2 in the steely blue colorway shown above. Combine the promo code with the existing discount and the price of this shoe drops from $180 to $88. That’s the kind of deal that’ll brighten your day no matter what the weather is looking like. — Steve Mazzucchi
Kershaw Knockout Damascus
Save $88: Damascus steel isn’t just for show. Knives that use it are most obviously characterized by the undulating patterns in their blades, but the involved process of making it — a century’s old method involving the layering of various types of metals — is known to create a final product that’s also incredibly strong. Utilized in a pocket knife, it makes for a tool that’s unique in both aesthetics and effectiveness (and, typically, expensive).
An excellent example of the application of Damascus steel is Kershaw’s Knockout. Kershaw conceived the EDC folder as uncompromising; it uses the company’s Sub-Frame Lock, in which a section of a handle is cut out to make room for a steel insert that bends inward when the blade is deployed to hold it in place, like a traditional frame lock. That construction allowed Kershaw to use aluminum for the rest of the handle, keeping the overall build lightweight yet sturdy. It’s a win-win that compliments the qualities of the Damascus steel blade, making for an exceptional everyday knife that, at the moment, is nearly $90 off. — Tanner Bowden
The North Face Griffin 65 Pack
Save $109: Ever since we got a sneak preview at Outdoor Retailer last year, we’ve been huge fans of The North Face’s Griffin 65 hiking pack. It’s our favorite among a line of four outstanding packs the brand launched in 2019 featuring DynoCarry, an easy-to-adjust load management system that makes carrying as close to a natural walking experience as possible. This pack is so well-designed and user-friendly, it claimed one of our OR Editor’s Choice Awards.
Want to grab one for yourself? You can currently save nearly 37 percent ($109) on this pack at Moosejaw. Use the promo code SOFTPRETZEL to claim the full savings, but like the headline says, there is indeed a catch. Though the Griffin 65 is available in three colors, the only shade with this level of savings is the Asphalt Grey/Tin Grey variety — which to the untrained eye looks a heckuva lot like black and white. Quantities are also quite limited, so if you want one, now’s the time to act. — Steve Mazzucchi
Topo Designs Klettersack
Save $57: The Klettersack is one of Topo Designs’ original backpacks. It’s also one of its best, sporting plenty of trail capability but remaining appropriate for daily use around town. The fact that its staying power has proven true over the years is remarkable, considering Jedd Rose started Topo Designs by sewing together bags in a basement. Now, the Klettersack is one of the bags in the brand’s collection that reappears every season in different colors and fabrics but with few changes to its overall design. Right now, you can pick up a version made of lightweight 200-denier ripstop for 30 percent off — a savings of $57 — at Huckberry. — Tanner Bowden
Filson Bandera Backpack
Save $75: Founded in 1897, Seattle-based Filson made a name for itself outfitting some of the hardest workers in the West. It’s bags accompanied workers to the rugged Alaskan wilderness and were proven year after year. While Filson still makes its classic designs, the brand also makes some backpacks more suited to everyday use.
The Bandera backpacks are made in the USA from hardwearing twill. The 22L bag has a large U-shaped zipper, an interior laptop pocket and a front zip pocket. Normally priced at $175, this discontinued model is now 43-percent off and costs just $100 — act fast if you want a great everyday pack. — John Zientek
Breedlove State Series Concert E Guitar
Save 20%: Founded in 1990, Oregon-based Breedlove makes a range of high-end guitars designed for discerning players. The Stage Series Concert E is no exception. Made in America, it features a solid mahogany top, back and sides in Breedlove’s original body shape, and an African ebony fretboard and bridge.
Designed for players, this guitar includes top-tier L.R. Baggs EAS electronics and a pinless bridge for easy string changes. And, the hand-rubbed, semi-gloss neck has a slim profile that is appropriate for many hand sizes. To top it off, the guitar features beautiful neck inlays, a simple rosette and a tasteful binding.
Normally priced at a very fair $830, the Stage Series Concert E now costs just $668. That’s almost too good to be true, so if it strikes your fancy, act fast — savings like this won’t be around long. — John Zientek
L.L. Bean Boots
Save 20%: Heritage New England outdoor brand L.L.Bean has been in business for over 100 years. Its first-ever product? The sort-of ugly, undeniably-iconic Bean Boot. Leon Leonwood Bean (yeah, that’s what the L.L. stands for) designed them as a solution to prevent wet feet while hunting in Maine’s damp conditions.
The design of the boot hasn’t changed much since: it features a stout rubber bottom and a hardy leather upper, which makes them ideal for winter’s inclement conditions. The boots have spread beyond hunting though, and now come in different heights with various linings for different temperatures and uses.
Right now, there’s an extensive collection of Bean Boot models (as well as apparel) up for sale on L.L.Bean’s website — just use the code SPLASH20 at checkout. — John Zientek
Wolverine Montague Chelsea Boots
Save 56%: A good pair of Chelsea boots gives you the best of both casual and professional footwear. For example, the Montague from Wolverine 1000 Mile features a sleek silhouette that is appropriate with both pressed slacks and beat-up jeans. The boots include Goodyear welt construction, a side zipper and a durable rubber sole. It’s relaxed comfort with a work-appropriate appearance — and now it’s 56 percent off. — John Zientek
Levi’s Jeans, Jackets and More
Save 30%: Right now, Levi’s is offering 30 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 SCORE at checkout, then tell a friend. — John Zientek
Fender Custom Shop Joe Bonamassa Vintage Collector Series Special Mod 1955 Relic Telecaster
Save over $1,150: The Custom Shop Joe Bonamassa Vintage Collector Series Special Mod 1955 Relic Telecaster has an ash body, 21-fret quartersawn maple neck with a ’57 soft-V profile, a vintage bridge and a single-ply parchment pickguard. The guitar has two hand-wound Tele pickups — a ’55 Tele pickup in the neck and a ’51 Nocaster pickup in the bridge — and a 3-way pickup switch. Also notable: the Tele has a heavily-worn 3-tone sunburst finish that was virtually non-existent on models from the mid-‘50s.
Limited to just 40 instruments which are exclusively carried at Guitar Center, this model is geared towards serious players or avid collectors. And while normal Custom Shop prices can be hard for some to swallow, this guitar is now 25 percent off. That means you can save $1,151 on this ridiculously nice Tele and take it home for just under $3,500. For a person obsessed with the details, this is a deal worth acting on. — John Zientek
Garrett Leight Aviator Sunglasses
Save 78%: If you already have some classic shades and are looking for something new to compliment them, head over to Nordstrom Rack. Currently, you can pick up a pair of California-cool sunglasses for 84 percent off. Get a pair of $365 Garrett Leight California Optical aviator shades for just 80 bucks.
The classic style has a metal frame, acetate temple tips and tinted lenses. If you like the silhouettes, act fast — it’s hard to beat these deals. — John Zientek
Adidas x Missoni Ultra Boost Sneakers
Save $116: If you’re looking for a wildly cool sneaker, head over to End today. Currently, you can pick up a pair of Adidas x Missoni Ultra Boost Clima sneakers on sale. The style features a Climacool Primeknit upper with Missoni’s iconic space-dying pattern, a sock-like collar and a co-branded tongue tag. And for additional visual interest, it has a mismatched 3-Stripes medial cage.
Function doesn’t suffer and the style has a knit heel cup, Torsion System, Boost midsole and Continental rubber outsole. Available in sizes 7 to 12, the silhouette comes in three colors and is now $116 cheaper than list price. So if you’re in the market for a new sneaker, don’t sleep on this — sizes will sell quickly. — John Zientek
Lucchese Western Boots
Save 36%: Founded in 1883, Lucchese makes some of the finest boots in America. Originally based in San Antonio, the company moved to its current headquarters in El Paso in 1987. The brand has since outsourced some of its entry-level production to Mexico, but it still makes a range of top-tier boots in America. Shoppers new to Lucchese should note that the high prices rightly reflect the quality materials and domestic craftsmanship.
If you’ve been jonesing for a pair of Lucchese boots but haven’t wanted to pay list price, head over to Zappos. You can save up to 36 percent on a range of American-made cowboy boots. There are plenty of sizes and colors available, so browse the selection and see what catches your eye — it’s hard to beat the quality and finishing of Lucchese boots. — John Zientek
Jabra Elite 65e headset
Save $160: The Jabra Elite 65e headset is arguably the best value proposition for anybody who wants in-ear headphones with active noise cancellation. Their nearest rival is the Bose QuietComfort 30, which costs $299, and that’s $99 more than the Jabra Elite 65e.
If you’re looking for a really sweet deal on in-ear noise-canceling headphones, you can buy a refurbished pair of Jabra Elite 65e on eBay for just $40. That’s a pretty steep discount. — Tucker Bowe
12.9-Inch iPad Pro (2019)
Save Up to $399: Right now, Amazon is selling the latest 12.9 iPad Pro (Wi-Fi only) with 1TB of storage for $1,350 – that’s $200 less than the exact same model on Apple’s website. Of course, the 1TB of storage is probably overkill for most people; but if you’re a photographer or videographer who edits on-the-go (or basically anybody who doesn’t use iCloud for storage), this iPad Pro model makes sense. — Tucker Bowe
Bose QuietComfort 30
Save $160: The Bose QuietComfort 30 are the company’s wireless noise-canceling earphones. They’re a great option for anybody that wants noise-canceling in-ear headphones, but it’s worth pointing out that they’ve been around since 2016. Yes, this means that Bose is due to come out with an updated version of the QuietComfort 30 in the near future – it already announced that the Bose Noise Cancelling Earbuds 700, the company’s first true wireless earbuds with active noise-cancellation, would be released sometime in 2020 – but it also means you can find some pretty awesome deals on them if you look hard enough. Case and point, this eBay deal. You can buy a refurbished pair of QuietComfort 30 for $140, which is a great deal considering that both Bose’s website and Amazon are selling new pairs for $300. — Tucker Bowe
Klipsch Powered Bookshelf Speakers
Save Up to $100: If you’re looking for a pair of great-sounding powered bookshelf speakers, both of Klipsch’s R-41PM and R-51PM are on sale right now. The two speakers share a similar design and build quality, but the main differences between the two are size and sound – and thus price. The Klipsch R-51PM are the larger of the two speakers and are capable of real “room-filling sound.” The Klipsch R-41PM powered speakers are the smaller and more affordable option. Both the Klipsch R-41PM and R-51PM are powered bookshelf speakers and come with their own built-in amplifier, meaning you won’t need to connect either pair of speakers to an external amp or receiver to play music. Additionally, the two speaker pairs have a number of different analog inputs, allowing you to can connect them to pretty much anything, whether that’s a turntable, laptop or an old CD player. They also have built-in Bluetooth, so you can stream directly to the speakers right from your smartphone. — Tucker Bowe

It’s also got a screw-down crown, unidirectional dive bezel, 200m of water-resistance and a blue silicone dive strap, all for just $319 right now — a significant discount off its retail price of $525. — Oren Hartov
Bulova Accutron II Lobster Chronograph
Save 62%: Bulova’s Accutron is no ordinary quartz movement: as its name emphasizes, it’s extremely accurate, operating at an exceptionally high frequency of 262kHz. Its seconds hand not only sweeps (rather than the typical quartz-watch ticking) but it does so far more smoothly even than your typical mechanical watch operating at 4Hz. Here, it’s in the form of a chronograph in a cool and unique, very vintage-style case measuring a bold 45mm on a nice Milanese bracelet. Nicknamed the “Lobster,” right now, you can get a great deal on this awesome Bulova Accutron II at Norstrom Rack for 62% off its full retail price ($650) for just $244. — Zen Love

If you’re a serious diver or simply in need of a tough, reliable watch for the outdoors, look no further — the Prospex PADI is on sale for 37% off today, down to just $331 from $525. — Oren Hartov
