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.
Anker SoundCore Mini
You can never have too many Bluetooth speakers, and Anker’s tiny soundmaker — four-and-a-half stars on Amazon — gets you 15 hours of playback and a range of 66 feet. All for just $18 (a 40% savings) when you use the code R46TM4H9.
The Field Cast Iron Skillet
A lightweight, smoother take on the must-have cookware. And now 30% off when you use the code skillet.
A new crowdfunded project from Segway, this self-balancing, AI-powered scooter has auto-follow, video capture, touch/voice/gesture controls and, supposedly, a fun personality. It’s 22% off during pre-orders.
Sales of note:
- Boxed: The bulk e-tailer now offers an alternative to Amazon Prime with Boxed Up, where a $49/year membership lands you 2% cash rewards, free priority shipping, price matching and exclusive deals of 15-25% on select items.
- Nordstrom Rack: The discount site has up to 60% off dozens of slip-on sneakers from Ben Sherman, Sanuk, TOMS, Vince, etc.
And a reminder that this is the best time of year to buy winter gear (and given the weather, you might still need it).
