Today's best sales: Wrinkle-free blazers, sneakers, Patagonia

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.

Arctic King Portable Air Conditioner
This cool 9,100Btu beast is portable, comes with a remote control and can cool a room up to 400 square feet. And it’s down to $219 right now (from $458). Note: Several other AK models are also on sale.

Cleverly Blazer
Call this low-maintenance dress-up. Cleverly is a 10-pocket, wrinkle-free, liquid-repellent blazer with four-way stretch and an RFID pocket that’s machine washable. Plus, you can stuff it the included travel bag when not in use. $149 during preorders, or half off the eventual MSRP. Delivery begins in October.  

Nike Cortez
Currently on sale for $46, which for a classic piece of sneakerdom (the first track shoe ever created by Nike!) is a pretty good deal. Not to mention that these are on trend as all get out right now.

Danube River Tour 2-for-1
TourRadar is currently offering a pretty bonkers 2-for-1 deal for their Danube river tour from Braila, Romania to Vienna, Austria. It includes stops at seven other destinations along the way, and meals and lodging (obviously — it’s a cruise) throughout.

Sales of note:

  • East Dane: A ton of new markdowns here, with good deals (some over 50%) from the likes of Club Monaco, Rivieras, Bang & Olufsen, Aer, The Very Warm and other Kind of a Big Deal faves.
  • Patagonia: Last day to save up to 50% off outerwear and gear at Mountain Steals.
  • Houzz Rug Sale: Get up to 75% off a wide selection of rugs. We know September 1 is a big moving day, so stock up now for your new furnishings.
