Kind of a Big Deal: Sept. 12th

Today’s best sales: Jetpacks, remotes, outdoor furniture

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.

Apollo Turbine JetPack
We were promised jetpacks … and Apollo Flight Labs delivers. On eBay, the gum (yes, gum) company is auctioning off both a real-life jetpack — one that race up to an unverified 100 mph — as well as the world’s first, fully functional jet-flying motorcycle. You’ll need to attend a multi-day training camp (included), and be prepared to shell out in the low six figures. Oh, and you must be willing to sign “a mountain of paperwork” and be over 18.

Logitech Harmony Touch
A touchscreen universal remote that controls up to 15 devices. Compatible with 5,000+ devices, it’s currently 80% off.

WG050 WORX AeroCart
A multi-function, two-wheel yard cart that makes “lifting 200 lbs feel like 17 lbs.” Currently $110 (a 45% savings), but you can take an extra 20% off with the code JUMPINTOFALL.

Erstwhile Maps
This company salvages 19th century maps and converts them to Airtex canvas while still maintaining the aged patina that makes these documents so intriguing. Get your hands on a few different map iterations for a 13% discount.

Sales of note:

  • Amazon: Take 25% off one item of select activewear (shoes, shorts, track jackets, etc.).
  • Houzz Outdoor Furniture: Up to 75% off sofas, tables chairs, dining sets and the like.
  • Samsung Gear S3: If refurbished isn’t a dirty word, you can pick up this smartwatch for $200 (down from $350).
