Home: Oster 5-Quart Food Steamer $15 (Reg. $25), much more

Today only, as part of its Gold Box Deals of the Day, Amazon is offering up to 40% off LifeStraw products. The LifeStraw Personal Water Filter for $14.29 with free shipping for Prime members (free trial) or on orders of $35 or more. That’s more than $5 or 25% off the going rate pretty much everywhere. It is even a few bucks less than the current Groupon sale.

Perfect for camping, hiking or even emergency situations, it can filter “1000 liters of contaminated water without iodine, chlorine, or other chemicals.” The LifeStraw removes “99.9999% of waterborne bacteria (>LOG 6 reduction) and surpasses EPA standards for water filters.” It has an impressive 4.7/5 star rating from over 3,100 Amazon customers.

ThePruneDanish (4.9 stars over the past 12 months from 14,387 ratings) via Amazon has the Oster 5-Quart Food Steamer in white (CKSTSTMD5-W) for $14.88 with free shipping for Prime members (free trial) or on orders of $35 or more. That’s 40% under the original $25 price tag, more than $5 under the average selling price and the best we can find.

This is a double-timed, 5-quart steamer with an automatic 60-minute timer, auto-on/off, indicator light and dishwasher safe parts. It is the second best selling food steamer on Amazon (half the price of the best seller) and has a 4.1/5 star rating from over 250 customers.

Down below we have some notable home deals from Best Buy’s Black Friday in July sale, blenders, brewers, gas grills, camping gear, air conditioners and more:

expiredBest Buy Black Friday in July: Powerbeats2 Wireless in-ears $130, Seagate 1TB Portable HDD $50, more

Best Buy’s Black Friday in July sale is now in full swing with deep discounts on everything from Apple devices and gaming gear to hard drives and headphones. On top of deep and rare discounts on current generation iPads, we are also seeing a very notable price on the Beats by Dr. Dre Powerbeats2 Wireless Bluetooth Headphones in multiple colors at $129.99 shipped. That’s $70 under the original listing, $30 below Amazon and matching our previous mention for the lowest we have ever seen.

Perfect for workouts, the Powerbeats2 are IPX4 sweat and water resistant, have a 30-foot Bluetooth range, 6 hours of playback (+15 minute quick charging), hands-free calling, and come with a hard shell case, RemoteTalk cable, cable management clip and more. They currently sit with a 3.8/5 star rating from over 1,100 Amazon customers. More notable headphones in the sale include the Skullcandy Hesh 2.0 Over-Ears for $24.99 with free in-store pickup or free shipping on orders over $35. Rated 4.2/5 stars from over 1,000 Amazon customers, this is the best price we can find on these highly rated cans.

Next up, there is a collection of Seagate’s latest edition Expansion portable drives starting with the Seagate Expansion 1TB External USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive (STEA1000400) for $49.99 shipped. That’s about $25 under the original listing, $5 better than Amazon/the average selling price, $5 under our previous mention and the best price we can find. The 2TB version is available for $74.99 shipped, that’s $5 under our previous mention/Amazon and again, the best price we can find. The 3TB desktop model in the sale for $99.99 is actually matched on Amazon and we have seen it dip $10 lower.

It doesn’t stop there though, the sale also has nice deals on MacBook stickers/decals, Bluetooth speakers from Beats and Harman and even the highly rated Logitech M310 Wireless Optical Mouse in multiple colors for $9.99 (Reg. $16+). You’ll find all of the best iPad and Apple deals right here.

expiredBest Buy Black Friday in July: iPad Air 2 $125 off, 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro $1,750, 27-inch 5K iMac $1,800, more

Update (7/24 8:30am): Best Buy’s Black Friday in July event is now open to everyone.

Just a week after Amazon’s Prime Day event (fiasco?), Best Buy is set to run its Black Friday in July Sale this weekend. One of the standout deals is a $125 discount on all iPad Air 2 Wi-Fi models. Even though the sale doesn’t officially kick off until tomorrow, new and existing My Best Buy members can access the sale starting right now. If you aren’t yet a member you can sign-up for free.

After the aforementioned discount, a 16GB iPad Air 2 will run you just $374.99 with free shipping. That’s $124.01 less than Apple is charging and the lowest price we’ve ever seen from a major retailer without the need for limited coupons or annoying rebates. The 64GB version is priced at $474.99 (Reg. $599) and 128GB is $574.99 (Reg. $699). If you’re looking for an iPad mini, Best Buy has the 128GB Wi-Fi iPad mini 3 on sale for $449.99 (Reg. $599). On the fence with which model to get? My advice is to stay away from the 16GB and go for at least 64GB since Retina apps and HD media take up so much room.

These are fire sale type prices. It’s really incredible to see a discount of up to 25% on a current generation flagship Apple product. There are some incredible iOS 9 features coming so now may be the time to upgrade.

Best Buy is also discounting the current generation 15-inch 256GB Retina MacBook Pro (model MJLQ2LL/A) down to $1,749.99 (Reg. $1,999) and the 27-inch Retina 5K iMac 3.3GHz/8GB/1TB (model MF885LL/A) to $1,799.99 (Reg. $1,999).
