Note: This deal goes live at 9AM ET, but quantities are expected to be very limited, so we’re posting it early to give you a chance to prepare.
While it may seem ludicrious, this $400 Sony WH-1000XM3 & Sennheiser HD 6XX bundle actually makes a lot of sense (and could save you a ton of money.) Let me explain. These are both terrific headphones. We’ve written, at length about how good the Sony XM3s are, and the Sennheiser HD 6XX is pretty legendary. But they serve very different purposes.
The Sonys are noise canceling, which is helpful when you’re on a plane or subway, and don’t want to hear anything. By contrast, Sennheisers are open back headphones, which let sounds pass through the cups, and allow you hear your surroundings (while also letting your music leak out). This openness gives these headphones a larger sound stage, and in turn, gives you a better listening experience.
So TL;DR, one is for outside, the other is for inside (but not in an open office, please).
If you purchase these separately, these two pairs of headphones would cost you over $500 ($220 for the Sennheisers, $300-$350 for the Sonys). So, buying the Sony WH-1000XM3 & Sennheiser HD 6XX bundle will in fact save a lot of money if you’re willing to invest in one purchase.
Get an Eero and an extra Eero Beacon for $239 (a $60 discount), an eero and two beacons for $319 (an $80 discount), or for the largest and most densely constructed houses, three full-fat eero routers for $399 (a $100 discount). To be clear, If you live in a one bedroom apartment, you don’t need any of these, but if you find that a single router doesn’t get you a reliable Wi-Fi signal in every part of your house, mesh systems like these are a godsend.
Status Audio BT Structure | $63 | Amazon | Promo code INVENTORY20
You probably know Status Audio from the company’s legendary CB-1 over-ear headphones, but the brand’s new Bluetooth earbuds carry on that legacy of sound quality, while letting you finally cut the cord.
If you prefer in-ear monitors, Status has you covered with two different options. The larger BT Structures include over-ear wings for a secure fit, a whopping 12 hours of battery life, and a larger-than-usual 9mm dual driver system that allows them to achieve an impressive depth on the low end without sounding muddy. They’re the best-sounding wireless earbuds I’ve ever tried.
For $10 less, the BT Transfers offer a smaller form factor at the expense of battery life (eight hours instead of 12) and slightly smaller 8mm drivers, though those are still larger than the ~6mm drivers you’d find in most earbuds of this size. To my ears, they sounded nearly identical to the Structures, so I’d choose based on the form factor that’s right for you. Both sets of earbuds are IPX5 water resistant (not great, but good enough for exercise), include Bluetooth 5.0, and sadly, charge over microUSB.
You can now buy either model on Amazon, and our readers can take 20% off with promo code INVENTORY20.
With 1080p recording, night vision, a 2-way intercom, and 24 hours of free cloud clip storage (or more if you sign up for a paid account), its specs compare very favorably to the Nest Cam, especially at today’s $90 price point.
That’s $30 less than usual, and if, somewhere down the road, you decide to buy a smart lock, you’ll have everything you need to use Amazon Key.
Tiny car chargers like this one have been massive hits with our readers for years, because they have that built-into-your-car look, but charge your phone much faster than the piddly USB port your car probably includes.
Now, Anker has a mini car charger of its own, it can charge two phones at 12W simultaneously, and it’s down to $11 (from $15) today on Amazon.
Samsung makes some of the best solid state drives around and this Samsung 970 EVO m.2 SSD is currently marked down to $90, an all-time low.
It bears repeating that SSDs are a huge upgrade over a spinning hard drive for your computer, in terms of speed and reliability. This 500GB model offers read speed up to 3400 MB/s and write speed up to 2300 MB/s.
This is also the easiest way to get more performance from your older computer.
Landlines are great for emergencies. They have the added benefit of storing your precise location data, so 911 operators already have that info, saving you precious time. They’ll also keep working even when mobile networks are congested with calls.
If it’s time for a replacement, there’s a Gold Box deal on a set of five Panasonic Link2Cell Bluetooth Cordless Phones.
This particular $85 model allows you to sync your smartphone to these so you never miss a call, add voice alerts, even charge your devices with the USB input on the home base. And this is the lowest price we’ve ever seen.
Shopping for a Kindle? The Oasis is also on sale for $50 less than usual.

Cake is good, but cake on a stick is better. Now you can have your cake pops and eat them too with this Babycakes Mini Cake Pop Maker, on sale for just $13. Basically, you just fill each reservoir with a tablespoon of your favorite batter, and—voila!—an adorable, delicious dessert sphere is baked and ready for sticking, decorating, and devouring.
Intex has quietly been making inflatable versions of...everything. And while you might be most familiar with their novelty pool floats, today’s deal is an inflatable you can use all year long.
Yes. Behold the inflatable sectional. Gaze upon it, and despair.
I’m by no means suggesting that this should be your main couch. But it could act as additional seating (both indoors and out) when you have lots of guests coming over. You could bring it to a friend’s house. You could set it up in the parking lot for a tailgate. It’s down to $50 today on Amazon, within a few cents of an all-time low, so at least when people give you weird looks about it, you can laugh nervously and tell them you bought it ironically.
It’s not cold outside yet, but you can still stay cozy inside with a nice hot cup of whatever made with this Cosori glass kettle, now on sale for $30 —that’s the best price we’ve seen. A built-in LED light indicates when your water has reached its boiling point, and it certainly won’t be an eye sore on your kitchen counter. This deal won’t last long, so drink up this discount while you can.
Do you really need an excuse to go home shopping today? Well, we’ve got one for you if you do. Right now Wayfair’s Home Renovation Sale has up to 50% off select home items.

Butcher Box just added a new meat to its arsenal: wild-caught Atlantic sea scallops! Yes, the chicken nuggets of the sea can be delivered to your front door, and if you sign up for a new membership right now, you’ll get a pound of scallops and a pack of bacon thrown in for free, in addition to whatever else would have been in your box anyway.
You may be tempted to make bacon-wrapped scallops, and I wouldn’t blame you if you did, but there’s nothing wrong with enjoying them separately, on their own merits.
Your bonus come bundled with any of Butcher Box’s pre-selected boxes, which are priced at $129 for 24 servings, or $238 for 48 servings, which can be delivered every 30 or 60 days. For a nominal surcharge, you can also build a completely custom box, with your choices of proteins.
All foods are better fried, but because the world is a cruel place, fried foods are bad for you. If you are looking to eat fried guilt-free, look no further than this DASH Compact Air Fryer, now down to $70 thanks to Amazon’s Gold Box. This 6 qt. air fryer which uses hot air instead of oil to make everything extra crispy.
It’s technically an oven, so it’ss also a great tool for cooking frozen foods.
At $70, it’s the lowest price we’ve ever seen. Order up one in either black, aqua, white or red, before this deal becomes stale at the end of the day.
Run—don’t walk—to take advantage of this Adidas Flash Event at Nordstrom Rack before the best styles sell out. Right now, women’s shoes and apparel, men’s shoes and apparel, and kicks and clothes for kids are on sale. You’ll definitely find the things you need take you over the finish line this fall.
BauBax has been turning out Kickstarter hits in the travel apparel space for a few years now, and while their jackets and pants put the focus on utility and versatility, their new travel shoes keep things simpler.
Constructed from natural materials like merino wool, coconut, and bamboo, BauBax’s travel shoes are designed around the things that matter most when you’re up and about, like odor resistance, breathability, grip, comfort, and perhaps most importantly of all, weight.
While the materials used are the same across the line, you can preorder your shoes in a variety of colors and styles, including loafers, sneakers, and slip-ons, and all of them are available laced or unlaced. They all look great, though I think you’d want one of the laced options if you’re planning on doing a lot of walking in them.
Preorders are open now starting at $89, with shipping expected in December.

Cole Haan makes some seriously great shoes for any occasion, and if you’re looking for a new pair but don’t want to spend the normal asking price, they’re taking an extra 40% off their sale section with the code EXTRA40. We expect that this will be their last big sale of the year.

You don’t need to be a hyper-intelligent simian to know that getting all nine Planet of the Apes films on Blu-ray (including the three most recent ones in 4K) and digital for $35 is a good deal.

From the NES days all the way up to Breath of the Wild, Legend of Zelda games have featured some of the most stirring, evocative, and recognizable scores in all of gaming. You don’t need any further proof than the fact that there’s literally a touring orchestra show dedicated solely to the series.
Now, you can experience that concert at home with this limited edition soundtrack, now on sale for an all-time low $48 (from the usual $55-$65). That includes two audio CDs, plus a Blu-ray with video of a performance.

In fairness, I’m not sure that I’ve ever seen a Nintendo Switch being played in tabletop mode in my entire life. But if you do! This official stand from Nintendo allows you to charge the device, adjust your viewing angle, and won’t snap in half like a twig like the Switch’s built-in kickstand.

Just remember, these discounts are only available until the end of the day, or sold out. So check out the main post to see all of your options, reload your toy cabinet before this deal inventively gets nerfed.
Teams of two line up opposite each other next to two special cans (included), just like Cornhole. One team member tosses a frisbee at a can, and the other attempts to bop it out of the air, and onto or into the can for varying numbers of points. It combines two great activities: throwing a frisbee, and slapping things out of the air, so you’ve got a recipe for fun.
This was one of our readers’ favorite lawn games in a recent Co-Op, and today’s $30 deal is about $8 less than usual. Have fun!

Back in March, Private Internet Access (our readers’ favorite VPN service) raised its prices for the first time ever. And while our readers can still get an exclusive 3-years for $99 plan, they just lowered their other plans back to their old prices for a limited time.
The reason this is a big deal is that you can renew your membership as many times as you want at whatever price you originally paid. Once the prices go back to normal, you’ll still be locked into the lower rate.
Here are the new (old) promotional prices, along with what you’d normally pay:
- 1 month: $6.95 (down from $9.99)
- 1 year: $39.95 (down from $71.88)
Clearly, the annual plan is the sweet spot here if you don’t want to commit to the three-year plan, but $6.95/month for 10 simultaneous connections, clients for just about every conceivable device, and servers in 32 countries (foreign Netflix, anyone?). We aren’t sure when the prices will go back up, so you probably want to lock in your account ASAP.
There’s a new king of the Instant Pot world, and it just got its first significant discount ever.
The Instant Pot Max is the first Instant Pot to achieve steady 15 PSI pressure cooking, comparable to stovetop models. Previous models have maxed out at around 11.6 PSI, and the added pressure means that your food will cook even faster (who knew that was possible?). It can even do high pressure canning, the first electric pressure cooker to
achieve USDA approval for that purpose.
Update: Sorry, it’s “positioned for approval,” but it’s not official yet.
The Max also comes with a revamped touchscreen interface—it’s come a long way from the cheap-looking bubble buttons of the DUO—and a touchscreen button to automatically vent your pressure. You can even set it to pulse, so you don’t have to stand at the counter hitting a button repeatedly for five minutes.
The Max came out earlier this year for $200, and it’s basically stayed there for the most part. Today though, you can pick it up for $150, easily an all-time low.

The Casper Pillow is our readers’ favorite pillow and this is actually a deal we’ve never seen before from Casper.

It is a cult-favorite and a couple of bucks off at that price. You can find your preferred scent from this sampler, as it includes almond, eucalyptus, tea tree, lavender, and peppermint.
Zach Custer from The Inventory had to say about Dr. Bronner’s:
Dr. Bronner’s is now my default for a handful of cleaning needs, and a trusted fail safe when another bottle runs dry. Dr. Bronner’s hasn’t replaced all my cleaning supplies, but it’s definitely reduced the excess. And since it’s all natural, I don’t have to think twice about using it, it’s basically always safe. Just remember to Dilute! Dilute! Ok!
