June 20, 2018 9:00 am

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.

Rocky Mountain Underground BRFCS-35L
“Rugged” and “suitcase” aren’t usually synonymous, but RMU’s padded, weather-resistant pack will keep your gear dry (there’s separate interior storage for clean and dirty clothes) and protect your laptop. Now $25 off.

Apple HomePod
Since Apple never really offers a good, in-house discount, you need to go outside of Cupertino’s ecosystem. Best Buy has Apple’s new smart speaker at $50 off … and, while you’re shopping, you may want to check out BB’s new deals on MacBooks and Apple Watches.

Whiskey Is Barely Enough
A poster built with a whiskey image and a large-fonted Mark Twain quote on a printed dictionary page. Your obligatory man cave art is 23% off.

Sales of note:

  • Etsy: For their 13th birthday, the indie makers’ hub has special sales going on assorted clothing, home/living, vintage and jewelry items.
  • This two-day sale can net you up to 50% in travel savings — note that you’ll need to book by Thursday and travel before August 2nd.
  • Marmot: Get 25% off outdoor apparel and 20% off equipment with the code FIREWORKS.
