A Dozen Dynamite Daily Deals
Why we love it: An instant $10 manufacturer's discount at Costco makes this combo $7 cheaper than the lowest price on Amazon, and $10 cheaper than Walmart's price for the 3D Whitestrips alone. That's something to smile about.
Why we love it:Eddie Bauer's 50 percent off clearance includes a number of water bottles, including this model equipped with a freezable gel insert to keep liquids cool when the mercury rises.
Why we love it:JCPenney's Buy-One, Get-One-for-a-Penny sale translates to roughly 50 percent off a wide range of styles in any size or color stocked by the store. Use coupon code SHOP3 for an additional 25 percent off online orders and save even more with free shipping on orders over $99.
Why we love it:Walmart's rollback on the ultimate surf-and-sun companion drops the cost to just $13, making it the best price online by $7. With six built-in cup holders and enough capacity to hold 72 cans and ice, a hot summer suddenly looks a whole lot “cooler.” Look for in-store pickup to save at least an additional $5 on shipping.
Why we love it:ThinkGeek is knocking $15 off its exclusive, licensed “Game of Thrones” iPhone case (or $30 off a similarly-themed iPad cover). The clasp may or may not be forged from Valyrian steel, but a magnetic clasp and built-in pockets for storing a couple of cards add some function to the geek-factor form.
Why we love it: Consider this two-for-one ticket deal from TicketMaster a consolation prize for those not getting a pair of free tickets as part of the recent class-action settlement. Shows and locations are limited, but include marquee performers such as Demi Lovato, Chris Isaak, and Blue Man Group.
Why we love it: A $200 dollar discount from Hayneedle takes 70 percent off the regular price and includes free shipping. The built-in retractable ottoman adds an extra dimension of leisurely lounging.
