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.


Olivers Mystery Box
The made-in-LA lifestyle brand is offering $300 of product for $150 (or $600 for $300). Caveat: The exact contents of each box are a mystery, but customers do get to choose their size and Olivers does really well with your everyday basics and utility layers.


Timex has been celebrating its 165th year in business with an ongoing raft of sales, and the latest promises up to $80 off a handsome supply of tickers (use code “TREATYOURSELF” at checkout). Our five favorites from the sale are here.


Google Home
Walmart’s throwing a huge sale on Google Home gear, including the Home Mini ($29, down from $49), mesh routers ($40 off), the Home Hub ($99, which is $50 off), the Home Max speaker (a lowest-ever $299) and a Smart Light Starter Kit (now $35, down from $55).
