By The Editors

Welcome to Kind of a Big Deal, a daily roundup of great sales on the brands and items you love (tech, shoes, style, travel, etc.), as well as great new products. Please note: Deals are subject to change at the whim of the merchants mentioned.

LG 55/65″ E8 4K HDR OLED Glass TV w/AI ThinQ (2018)
Designed in collaboration with the Danish furniture maker BoConcept, this is one of the sexier televisions you’ll ever see. It features a beautiful OLED screen, as well as AI ThinQ and Google Assistant, which allows you to control all the smart devices in your home. There’s also an option to add on the Dolby Atmos Soundbar. Currently 33% off on Massdrop.

Pendleton Towels
Currently 13% off, these soft cotton jacquard, double-sided towels will not only dry you (as towels are wont to do), but they’re practically art. Great for bathrooms, spreading out on the beach or doubling as a camp blanket.

Sensorwake Trio
We saw (well, smelled) this in action a few months back: The Trio is an alarm clock that combines sounds and light with pleasant scents — like delicious baked goods, or invigorating evergreens — to gently but efficiently get you about your day. Currently $99 (a 37% savings) during pre-orders, shipping in November.

Sales of note:

  • Amazon: It’s up to 43% off assorted Echoes, Fire TVs, Dots and other assorted Amazon devices.
  • Olive Garden: Starting at 2pm today, you can buy a Pasta Pass that’ll net you a year’s worth of unlimited pastas. This sold out in seconds last year. Do what you must.
  • Spotify: A rare deal here, with a year of streaming music for $99, a 17% savings.
