Today’s Gold Box deal is the 24-Ounce Contigo Cortland Water Bottle, discounted to just $9. The Cortland is dishwasher safe, BPA-free, and fits in most cupholders. The Cortland is usable with one hand, with a drinking spout that “autoseals” between sips, and also features a carry clip on the handle. [Contigo Cortland, $9]

While Contigo took the win in our best travel mug vote, their bottles were not nominated in our best water bottle contest, where Nalgene secured the victory.

Here are some more great recommendations, in case the Cortland isn’t the right bottle for you:

Not plastic, and insulated...

The Hydroflask took third place in the voting. Stainless steel, attractive, and sporting a wide variety of sizes, colors, and lids. It’ll keep your cold drinks very cold and your hot drinks very hot.

If you don’t want plastic or stainless steel...

Many readers were not convinced of the safety of BPA-free plastic and are sensitive to the taste stainless steel can add to water. The Lifefactory was the most enthusiastically recommended glass bottle in our comments, and is also the water bottle I use at the office.

Something huge...

Our promotions team (not part of Commerce) is current running a deal with WavesGear on their 34oz Forever Cold stainless steel insulted water bottle.

For coffee or tea...

The Contigo Autoseal West Loop was your winner for Best Travel Mug, and one of our most popular products of 2014.

For cleaning your bottles...

We recommended the Oxo Good Grips Water Bottle Cleaning Set to clean your Travel Mugs, and are doing the same here.
