#1: Marvel Comics
Amazon’s running a Marvel digital comic sale that’s bigger than any Avengers movie today, with literally thousands of titles marked down to just a few bucks, in most cases. You’ll find everything from the Guardians of the Galaxy to Darth Vader to Deadpool to Captain America in there, and every hero in between, so there’s never been a better time to stock your digital shelves.
The selection is overwhelming (400 Amazon pages, or over 25,000 titles!), so we dropped a few highlights in this post, but definitely leave your own suggestions in the comments.
#2: 5.1 Surround Sound
Sound bars have come to dominate the home theater audio space, but if you prefer the channel separation that you can only get with real speakers, this $199 Onkyo package has everything you need for true 5.1 surround sound. This price is only available today though, and could sell out early.
#3: Leather Shoes
It’s not often you can find quality leather shoes for an affordable price, but here we are. Amazon is discounting four styles, and a bunch of colors, of men’s leather shoes from Liberty Footwear. If you need a good pair of boots, or dress shoes that are affordable and look good (except maybe those crocodile ones, but I digress), this Gold Box is for you.
Note: The prices vary by size and color, because Amazon wants us to have nice things, but not that easily.
#4: Echo Dot
Amazon usually sells certified refurbished Echo Dots for $5 less than new models, but for now at least, that discount has increased to $15. Refurbished Dots still carry the same warranty as new ones, so there’s really no downside to going this route if you want to sprinkle these around your home on a budget.
#5: Boos Block
The newly-minted-readers’-favorite cutting board brand, Boos Block, is selling one their edge-grain maple boards for $60, which is only about half as much as the same-sized boards made of other woods.
If taken care of, wood cutting boards can last forever and dull your knives less than most plastic boards, so consider this an investment for your home. Plus, they make nice serving platters.
#6: Cordless Massagers
It’s been a stressful year, so if a little self-care is in order, a couple of cordless massaging products are on sale today.
For your shoulders, neck, and back, Mynt’s shiatsu massager with heat is down to $53 with promo code BEST2240. You can make the experience as light or as deep as you want just by pulling on the straps, and since it can run off a built-in battery for up to 90 minutes, you can find your moment of zen wherever you want.
For a more portable massaging experience, you can also score a cordless pillow for $30 with promo code BEST2340. This only has four massage nodes, compared to the larger model’s eight, but it still does heat, and you can take it with you anywhere.
Even if you already have products like these yourself, they’d make great gift ideas for the holidays - who doesn’t like a massage, after all?
#7: The Handmaid’s Tale
Amazon has marked down Margaret Atwood’s increasingly-less-fictional The Handmaid’s Tale to just $3 for your Kindle. Nolite te bastardes carborundorum.
#8: Patagonia Discounts
Patagonia’s Web Specials section is always full of amazing discounts on gear you’ll actually want to use. For their huge Summer Sale, they’re taking to 50% off those Web Specials and past season products. If you were waiting to pick up winter gear until it was discounted, now is your chance.
#9: Anker SoundBuds
Anker’s original SoundBuds were our readers’ favorite affordable Bluetooth headphones, but they’ve since spawned an entire line of earbuds to fit every budget and lifestyle.
The SoundBuds Curve are the newest addition to the family, and are designed with active users in mind. Their ear wings ensure they stay put while you exercise, and an internal hydrophobic coating means your sweat won’t fry them. Their best spec though? 12.5 hours of battery life, which is fantastic for Bluetooth earbuds. They normally sell for $36, but you can get them for an all-time low $26 right now, no code necessary.
#10: PlayStation Plus
Update: Back in stock, if you missed it yesterday!
We thought the days of $40 PlayStation Plus sales were behind us, but lo, here it is at GameStop. If your membership is due to expire soon, or hell, even if it isn’t, you’ll want to take advantage of this.
