#1 refurbished apple watches

Refurb Apple Watch Sale | Amazon

How will you track your New Year’s fitness resolutions without a wearable device that tracks your runs, your heart rate, and how often you stand up? Today only, Amazon’s blowing out a bunch of refurbished Apple Watches, from the Series 1 (which was actually the second model), to the Series 2 (which added a faster processor, GPS, and better waterproofing), to the Series 3 (faster processor, LTE).

Just remember that this is a Gold Box deal, so the clock is ticking. These prices will go away at the end of the day, and I suspect some models will sell out early.

#2 Instant pot

If you keep telling yourself you should buy an Instant Pot, today’s the day to pull the trigger, as the 6 qt. Plus model is on sale for less than the cost of the 3 quart version.

In addition to pressure cooking (which is a miracle), this is also our readers’ favorite slow cooker, and one of their favorite rice cookers too. To put it simply, it’s one of the most versatile kitchen gadgets you can own. Today’s deal is over $30 less than usual, and while we saw better deals around Black Friday, this is still a good bargain if you didn’t have an Instant Pot waiting for you under the tree.

#3 logitech headset

Logitech G430 7.1 Gaming Headset For PC and PS4 | $30 | Amazon

If you’re in the market for a solid mid-range gaming headset on a budget, the Logitech G430 is down to $30 today, the best price we’ve ever seen.


The G430 works with PS4s and PCs, and its 7.1 surround sound makes a big difference in games like Fortnite and PUBG, because they let you hear which direction people are coming from while you hide in a bathtub.

#4 gloomhaven

Gloomhaven | $115 | Amazon

I realize that you’re not used to paying $115 for a board game, but you should make an exception for Gloomhaven. It’s Board Game Geek’s #1 board game ever, and is “astoundingly good” according to Ars Technica. Hell, it weighs 20 pounds! It was also a finalist in our recent board game Co-Op on The Inventory. If you love board games, this should be on your bucket list.

The thing is though, even when retailers have it in stock, it usually costs $140+, and eBay resellers will charge you even more, so this is a major discount we’re talking about here.

The game includes permanent stickers that transform the board as you play, but you can grab this removable, vinyl sticker pack instead, if you want to replay.

#5 greats

GREATS Winter Clearance – Men | Women

You’ve probably seen an ad for GREATS on Facebook or Instagram, and I’m happy to report that they aren’t a scam. I own a pair of Royales, and it almost feels like an insult to call them sneakers, because they’re as well made and sturdy and unapologetically leather as any dress shoes I’ve ever owned. And yet, they are sneakers. Really, really good sneakers.

Greats doesn’t run big sales very often, but right now, you can take advantage of their Winter Clearance event (men | women), with up to 50% off a pretty wide variety of styles. They only tend to do sales this big twice per year, and while your color and size choices are somewhat limited, but these are as, uh, great as GREATS deals ever get.

#6 smart power strip

At $23 (with promo code 1549VL86), this smart power strip costs about as much as a standard smart plug, but it includes four smart AC outlets that you can control individually with your smartphone or Alexa, plus four USB ports too (though you can only control them as a set).


The free control app and Alexa will recognize the power strip as five different devices (four AC outlets, and the USB ports as a group) , all of which you can name, schedule, connect to your favorite voice assistant, and control from anywhere.

#7 purolater oil

If you life to change your own oil, there’s no reason not to stock up on really good Purolator filters with these Amazon coupons. For a limited time, you can save $3 on your choice of Purolator ONE filters, or $4 on any Purolator BOSS filter, which has a longer lifespan.


Click through to any product page to use Amazon’s part picker tool, which will help you find the right filter for your vehicle. But just remember that with Amazon coupons like this, you won’t see the discount until checkout.

#8 hanes

Add to your collection of these vital basics with this deal on Hanes from eBay: Shoppers can take 20% off their Hanes orders of $15 or more. A range of necessities for men and women are available, including less well-known Hanes items like polos, pantyhose, and pajamas, so use code JUSTHANES and stock up now.

#9 j.crew factory

J.Crew Factory is already marked down significantly compared to its regular J.Crew counterpart, but now, the Factory is taking its discounts to a whole new level. Starting today, take an extra 60% off all clearance items for men, women, and kids using code CLEAROUT. The sale section is currently stacked with winter staples in that classic J.Crew aesthetic, so shop and save on those in-season styles now.

#10 rearview camera

Auto-Vox Rearview Camera and Mirror Kit | $98 | Amazon | Promo code XVHY9BPG

Once you’ve used a rear-view camera, it can be tough to live without, and you can add one to your older car for just $98 with promo code XVHY9BPG.


This Auto-Vox kit includes a camera and a replacement rearview mirror with the display built in. When the screen is off, the mirror will work just like any other, but when the camera (which draws power from your reverse light, cleverly) comes on, the left side of the mirror will display a wide angle view of everything behind you.
