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.

Ring + Echo Dot
Packages mysteriously disappearing from your front door?  Invest in a video doorbell. Ring is a motion-activated cam with two-way talk and Alexa integration … the latter attribute helped immeasurably by the inclusion of a free Echo Dot. Currently this bundle is 29% off.

Sonos Beam
Fact: Your beautiful flat screen TV has lousy speakers. You certainly need a soundbar, and Sonos’s newish Beam is both incredibly easy to install and an audio wonder (yours truly paired his Beam with two Sonos One speakers and experienced instant surround sound bliss). Currently $50 off at Amazon.

Bunka Knife
Crafted in Japan with ZDP-189 steel (very corrosion-resistant!), this amazing looking chef’s knife features a walnut handle and a purposely dark patina on top of the blade to show off the hand-forging process. Now 15% off.
