Combekk Railway Cast Iron Fry Pan
Yes, you can get a good cast iron for relatively few bucks. But this made-in-the-Netherlands beast has some real advantages: It’s made from 100-percent recycled materials and it features an extra-long wooden handle crafted from FSC-certified wood, giving you a solid grip. Currently on Massdrop for $90 with free shipping, or nearly half off the retail price (and about $10-$40 cheaper than we saw on sale anywhere else).
Wellthread Sherpa Trucker
Your grail-like quest for the perfect jacket? It ends right here, with the Levi's X Outerknown Wellthread Sherpa Trucker. Currently a whopping 40% off, the Sherpa sources sustainable materials in single-fiber polyester and USA-grown cotton. It's as comfy as it is tough. Note: Sizes are limited.
Fitbit Charge 2
It’s not the latest model, but it’s a solid and slim activity tracker (heart rate, steps, plus call/text/calendar alerts) and it’s now only $100 on Groupon, or $20 less than Amazon and just about $2 higher than the lowest price we’ve ever seen anywhere.
Sales of note:
- American Trench: These colorful but tasteful Holiday Sock Bundles here are now $50-$70, or more than 30% off if you bought them separately.
- Nordstrom Rack: It's up to 68% off luggage from Samsonite, Vince Camuto, Traveler’s Choice and more.
