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 Asshole Survival Guide
Robert I. Sutton already wrote the best-seller The No Asshole Rule. Now, he tackles what to do if you’re stuck in a workplace or environment with jackasses (even if the jackass is you). Currently 40% off.
This Is Ground Tech Dopp Kit 2
Our favorite way to carry chargers, cords and headphones — this is beautiful full-grain leather, folks — is now a whopping $80 off.
A high-speed blender with 12 pieces, including three cups and a recipe book. Now 32% off.
The best way to keep your jangly pocket things organized. Get two (with USB sticks) for $99 with the code ORBIT.
SWITCH Bluetooth Speaker
We love Bluetooth speakers. We don’t love the uniform colors (would you like that in black or ... black?). Native Union makes a cool green unit that also charges your phone and acts a conference call unit.
The Black Tux
The possible demise of Combatant Gentlemen means you might have been screwed out of a cheap wedding outfit. But our friends at the Black Tux have a great offer: If you have to attend a wedding between now (well, two weeks from now) and the end of the year and you never got your CG suit, they’ll give you a free tux rental if you forward a receipt and event date to firstname.lastname@example.org.
