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
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
Outdoors and Fitness
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
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
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
Seiko Prospex Samurai Special Edition
Save 39%: Of all the great recent Seiko watches, this black and blue Prospex special edition “Samurai” looks totally badass, with a 44mm steel case and automatic Seiko movement. 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
