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.
The retailer’s Half-Yearly Sale begins today and lasts through January 2nd. It’s a pretty broad sale, encompassing shoes, clothes, bags, accessories and grooming supplies. And footwear — can’t really go wrong with these savings on Cole Haan hiker boots and Chukkas (including a few Nordstrom exclusive styles).
Pluto Wireless Portable Power Bank
A sleek, minimalist charger for your Qi-enabled devices with some cool little tricks. Encased in an aluminum body with a wool-blend cover, you can actually charge two devices at once here (one wired, one wireless), and if you charge your phone while the Pluto is plugged in, the charge will first go toward your Samsung or Apple device over the charger itself. Currently 50% off, shipping in May.
