Today’s deals include a a clever slow cooker, a sweet deal at Starbucks, and a pair of Nike running shoes designed for style and comfort no matter the distance. And for the under-10 set there’s a furry companion to keep them company wherever the adventure takes them. Finally, there’s a water slide to keep the kids cool this summer at an already cool price.

$60 OFF MEN'S NIKE FREE TRAINER 3.0 V4 (HALF OFF)

Why we love this deal: This is one pair of kicks that look as good as they feel -- and they feel pretty good considering Nike is selling them for about the same price they go for used on eBay. And let’s face it, who really wants to wear a pair of used running shoes?

$20 CHEFMAN SLOW COOKER WITH DIE-CAST INSERT FROM SEARS OUTLET

Why we love this deal: A 75% price break from Sears Outlet makes this a great deal, but the design details are what might convince a chef to replace that slow-cooker handed down from mom 20 years ago. A non-stick die-cast insert allows searing on a stovetop before transferring to the slow cooker -- which is super convenient -- and a warming mode that keeps food ready for hours without the worry of overcooking.

$5 FOR A $10 STARBUCKS EGIFT CARD

Why we love this deal: Venti for the price of a Tall! For those not versed in Starbucks parlance, this translates to a darn good deal from Groupon. But java junkies should act fast; deals such as this get scooped up quicker than they can say “Venti Mocha Macchiato.”

$7 CUDDLE FRIENDS BLANKET AND PILLOW FROM SEARS (72% OFF)

Why we love this deal: These plush stuffed animals convert into a pillow and blanket, making them the perfect fuzzy companion for a long road trip, plane ride, or sleepover. Choose in-store pickup from Sears and save even more.

15% OFF SURF 'N SLIDE INFLATABLE WATER SLIDE

Why we love this deal: Cheaper than a trip to the water park, this deal from Walmart includes gear parents can use to help the young ones beat the heat outdoors -- and keep the rowdy bunch from bouncing off the walls. The $60 set comes with two inflatable surf riders for soft landings and connects to a garden hose to keep sliding surfaces slick and riders cool.
