Kind of a Big Deal: November 1st

Today’s best sales: Photo printers, blankets, suits 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.

Holga Printer
Get prints of your smartphone pics through this portable, manual printer, which requires no battery or wifi to operate. You can also edit these Polaroid-style photos with filters and effects. Prices start at $51, or 35% off the future MSRP.

Ethohome Weighted Blanket
Even sleep experts say weighted blankets work … to a degree. But forget sleep — this is about warm fuzzies. “The Weighted Blanket lands somewhere between being tucked in by a hundred puppies and that feeling that everything was going to be okay when bedtime rolled around and your mom tucked you in.” Currently $25 off.

Eton FRX3+ Emergency Weather Radio
As someone who’s survived a few fall blackouts, you’ll certainly want this hand-cranked radio available. It also charges your phone. Now 50% off.

Sales of note:

  • Bonobos: Take an extra 40% off sale items with the code GHOULS.
  • Colgate: We have no idea about the store (Alphabetdeal) but they’re offering an 18-pack of toothbrushes for $11, or 82% off the retail price.

Black Friday:

As I’m writing this, it’s still October. Anyway, Lowe’s kicking off Black Friday waaaaaay early with up to 50% off appliances and tools. Not to be outdone, Home Depot is also offering up to 40% off appliances and an extra $500 off assorted fridges, ovens, etc. if you buy two or more.

Nota bene: If you buy through these links, InsideHook may earn a small share of the profits on some items
