Kind of a Big Deal: August 9th

Today's best sales: Couches, headphones, travel irons and more

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.

The sofa-in-the-mail company just launched Couch Potato, a “sit tracker” app that looks after all the time you spend doing nothing…and offers up discounts for laziness (say, 10% off a new Burrow).

Audio-Technica Noise-Cancelling Headphones
Good-looking cans that’ll cancel up to 95% of exterior noise. (“What?”) WE SAID…oh, ha. Submerge yourself in your own world for just just $94, a savings — depending on where you compare — of $100-$255.

Dritz Mighty Travel Steam Iron
Currently only $18 this travel steamer that clocks in at 5.5 x 3 in. allows you to unwrinkle whenever/wherever you need. It has four heat and two steam settings along with an auto-shut-off feature should it tip over while you’re off being irresponsible and not paying attention to your hot iron.


OontZ Angle 3 Splashproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker
Currently the low price of $20, this will serve as a great water resistant option for the remainder of your summer pool partying.

Sales of note:

  • CAT Footwear: An end of season sale nabs you deals up to 30% off.
  • LifeProof: Phone cases, backpacks, power accessories and more are 20% off through Sunday.
  • ThinkGeek: To celebrate 19 years, nerd central here is offering up to 80% off assorted pop culture regalia. We’re not hatin’ … we’d totally grab some of these Star Wars Geeki Tiki mugs.
  • John Varvatos: Over 50% off this Detroit-inspired menswear, from suits to tees to leather jackets.
