GeedDeal’s Ebay site has the
UE Roll Rugged/Waterproof Bluetooth portable speaker in Volcano 2 pack for $79.99 shipped. That’s by far the lowest price we’ve seen for a 2 pack and even a good price for a 1 pack (BOGO). These are listed as new, open box and carry a 90-day warranty from GeekDeal in Volcano color shown above. I reviewed the UE Roll extremely favorably and even recommend it over the UE Roll 2 at its deeply discounted price.
For reference, Amazon has 1 for $69.99-$100 and that’s a solid deal. So for $10 more, you are getting a second speaker.
Dads love these and they make great summer companions. expand full story

That’s the lowest price we’ve seen on a tier one HDTV Antenna with a decent coax lead (16.5 feet) and this one gets an impressive 4.1/5 star rating.
These are great for bringing in local channels (~25 mile radius) without having to drop insane prices on cable bills and cable boxes. You hook it right into your HDTV, program some channels and voila: free TV forever. At $8 shipped, this wanders way into no brainer territory. Even if you aren’t a cord cutter, this serves as a great backup in case of cable outage or emergencies. Great for Dads and Grads.
