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.
Matador Packable Backpack
We’ve featured this before, and we’re doing it again as it’s back on sale. We love this because it’s a full-size 24L, waterproof backpack that’s packable in a bag about the size of a beer can. It’s your day trip bag. On sale for 15% off. (Matador has a handful of other packable products on sale as well.)
Bluefly Online Sample Sale
The luxury online marketplace currently has a “sample sale” going with products for up to 70% off. There are literally thousands of products on sale here. A few we like: This Brooks Brothers Cardigan, Heritor Automatic ($1k watch for $270), and the Something Strong briefcase.
URPOWER Solar Lights
These lights are completely solar powered (meaning, you won’t need a battery) and feature motion sensors. Easy to install and great for outdoor areas with up to 12 hours of continuous lighting after sunset. This four-pack is on sale for $37 (54% off).
Everlane Linen Shirts
Slim-fit linen short- and long-sleeve shirts — available in indigo or white — from one of our favorite (and affordable) clothiers. New starting at just $48.
ECOXGEAR EcoStone Rugged Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker
Refurbished, yes. But also ridiculously tough and now $100 off (currently under $50). It'll survive your rowdiest beach summer.
Stan Smith Primeknit Shoes
White sneakers for summer: A necessity. So go with this classic silhouette, now 50% off.
