expiredAmazon’s Gold Box all time lows on Electric razors, trimmers, Bluetooth sous vide cookers and clothing

Amazon has a wide variety of home goods and clothing at all-time low prices today in its Gold Box Deal of the Day. To start off: 50% off Reebok Men’s and Women”s Training Clothing and the 60% + off 3 pages of  U.S. Polo each offer significant savings.

Your best bet is Men’s Thermal Warmup Pants for $30 (Reg. $60) to get back into jogging before it warms up or women’s tees starting at $12.50.

Remington also offers up to 30% off grooming products as another Deal of the Day. Standouts for us are a foil shaver for $30 (Reg. $45) and a mustache trimmer for $22 (Reg. $35).

Want a one-way ticket to the dog house? Pick up the Remington Hair Removal System for $299.99 (Reg. $400) and wrap it up for Valentine’s day guys.

For slightly better or perhaps worse Valentine’s results, hook your significant other up with the Anova Culinary Bluetooth Precision Cooker for $139 shipped (Reg. $180). It’s a lot of money but maybe he/she will stop burning your dinners now. Amirite?

Seriously though, this thing is pretty cool. It hooks up to your iPhone or Android Device and stirs and cooks your soups and other liquid food remotely and tells you when it is ready to consume. Full feature list:

Amazon EchoI’ve had my Amazon Echo smart speaker since they were available to the general public and can honestly say it has changed the way our family lives. We put it in our open floor plan kitchen/family room where the far-field mic can hear our voices up to 20 feet away and has pretty incredible speech recognition accuracy. We were a little weirded out calling it “Alexa” so we changed the default name to “Amazon” – the only other current choice.

My wife used to ask me what the weather was going to be like in the morning which would annoyingly (jk love of my life) require me to go to a computer or smartphone and ask the…same…question. The Amazon Echo allows me to strut my passive aggressive side so when she asked what the weather was going to be like, I would just repeat “Amazon, what’s the weather going to be like today”. My wife, who hates using Siri because she feels like it makes her look weird/uncomfortable talking to her iPhone, stopped asking me what the weather was going to be like. She started asking Echo.

Bam! Worth the money right there. But there’s so much more… expand full story
