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.

First and most importantly, Sonos is offering free, same-day delivery through most of Christmas Eve. Second, a Play:1 speaker at $119 (refurbished) is about the cheapest you’re gonna find a great wifi (not Bluetooth) home speaker … get a couple and make ‘em part of a larger sound system. Which you can also do with Sonos One smart speakers, which are $50-$70 off if you buy in bundles.

Eddie Bauer
The Semi-Annual Sale is on, meaning savings of 50% (and occasionally more) on flannels, pullover, tees and gloves, among hundreds of other items.

GiftNow is a digital gifting service where you only need an email and a vague idea of what you want to send. You send a gift via a merchant’s online store using only the recipient’s email address. Recipients accept their gift (or exchange it), with the ability to configure it to their own personal preferences. It makes shopping for shoes and clothes easy. And the merchants — Macy’s, Coach, Saks, American Giant, etc. — are pretty solid.

The James Bond Collection
A box set of Bond’s 24 films (sans the unofficial 1983 Sean Connery release Never Say Never Again) on Blu-ray, currently $68, a 28% savings and the lowest price it’s ever been.

Sales of note:

  • iTunes: A $100 app store and iTunes gift card (emailed) is only $80 at PayPal’s eBay store
  • Philips Hue Motion Sensor: Your Hue smart bulbs turn on and off when you enter and a leave room. Energy saving, and also price saving, at 32% off from Amazon (and it’s Prime eligible).
