Nordstrom Cedar Shoe Tree

Street Price: $20 MSRP: $20 Deal Price: $13

If you’re someone who favors shoes that are on the expensive side, shoe trees are a nice and simple way to keep them looking better longer. Nordstrom, as part of its Anniversary sale, is offering a significant discount on their shoe trees, which typically run $20 each. The sale price is $13 and shipping is free.

The Nordstrom Cedar Shoe Tree is our shoe tree pick in our Best Products for Maintaining and Shining Leather Shoes guide. Bryan Kim writes, “We did some research into shoe trees and found widespread acclaim for the Nordstrom store-brand Cedar Shoe Trees. They meet the specifications for a good shoe tree: They’re made completely out of aromatic cedar, and they come in seven sizes so you can pick a pair that best fits your shoes. They’re also made in the USA, if that’s important to you. If your shoes cost more than $300, investing in custom shoe trees from Hanger Project or a local boutique might make more sense, but otherwise, Nordstrom’s affordable offering will do.”

No-Spill 2.5-Gallon Gas Can

Street Price: $23 MSRP: $25 Deal Price: $19

No-Spill 2.5-Gallon Gas Can
A solid deal on our gas can pick

Whether you’re seeking a gas can for automotive emergencies, lawn mowing supplies, or need to store a few gallons in a safe place to power a generator, this is a nice deal on our gas can pick. At $19, it is at the lowest price we’ve seen for it in a few years. As it has averaged around $23 historically and has recently seen pricing as high as $25, this is a good opportunity to save a few bucks. Shipping is free with Prime.

The No-Spill gas can is our gas can pick in our Best Emergency Preparedness Supplies guide. The Sweethome staff, after warning against storing gas (and recommending that you do so only in the safest possible place if you insist on it), writes, “Despite all that, having an empty gas can around is a good idea in case you ever need to obtain or transfer gas without a car—they were among the most coveted items during Hurricane Sandy. Full or empty, the container you choose should be leak-proof and easy to pour with. After performing eight hours of research and testing four different cans, we chose the 2½-gallon plastic container from No-Spill ($24) as our pick for most people. “

Sport-Brella Portable All-Weather and Sun Umbrella

Street Price: $50 MSRP: $60 Deal Price: $35

Top pick
Sport-Brella Portable All-Weather and Sun Umbrella
An excellent price on our beach umbrella pick

An excellent deal for beachgoers on a great umbrella. In recent weeks, we’ve seen the Sport-Brella for $40 in a Prime-exclusive deal and even down to $36 for a short time, but at $35, this is the lowest price we’ve seen for this item. As the street price of this umbrella is around $50, this is a stellar discount. This price is available for the blue model only. Shipping is free.

The 8-foot Sport-Brella is our beach umbrella pick in our Best Umbrellas, Chairs, and Accessories for Enjoying the Sun and Surf guide. The Sweethome Staff writes, “If you are looking to spend less than $100, the Sport-Brella represents an improvement over traditional models in every detail. The difference in design isn’t too dramatic—part of the canopy rests on the sand instead of staying hoisted above you. But the difference in performance is significant. With three ground contacts and a lower center of gravity than our lofty umbrellas, the Sport-Brella stood firmly anchored during our testing in coastal winds, while our traditional umbrellas shifted and buckled. The canopy is vented, and windows on the sides zip open to aid with especially fierce gusts. And it doesn’t have a valence, sparing you the annoying sound of fabric flapping in steady wind.

The guide continues, “Our other umbrellas, from anchor to ribs, were covered in cheap plastic bits that looked like they could snap or crack easily, but the Sport-Brella has only two plastic parts, and those are dense and sturdy. The ribs themselves are made of steel. The canopy is 8 feet wide, which gives it a 1-foot advantage over most beach umbrellas. There’s plenty of space for a party of two, with room to keep bags and coolers out of the sun.”

Lodge Color 6-Quart Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven

Street Price: $60 MSRP: $115 Deal Price: $46

Top pick
Lodge Color 6-Quart Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven
Nice deal price, available in 2 other colors for $2 more.

Here’s a nice drop in price on our top pick for best cast iron dutch oven. We’ve seen a few deals on these in the past, but they only tend to pop up once every few months. While we did see a record low lightning sale on Prime Day, this deal is within $1 of the normal low price we’ve seen. It’s available for $46 in Emerald Green, and also available in Lagoon Green and Poppy Red for $48.

The Lodge Color Enamel 6-Quart is our top pick for the best dutch oven. Kevin Purdy and Ray Aguilera wrote, “The Lodge Color Enamel Dutch Oven is our top pick, because it cooks stews just as well as other Dutch ovens selling for four times the price. The Lodge’s shape works well for most cooking tasks, and the light interior makes it easy to determine browning. It produced one of the best stews, with well-browned meat and a flavorful, concentrated liquid. The enameled interior is easy to clean, and the oven has ample handles that make a big difference when cooking large recipes that may make the oven heavy to carry.

Fiskars 8 Inch The Original Orange-Handled Scissors

Street Price: $9 MSRP: $11 Deal Price: $4

Update : After a brief return to the normal street price, these scissors are back down to $4.

For those already picking some items up via Amazon today, these Fiskars scissors are a tremendous buy as an add-on item. Usually $9 if purchased standalone, today they’re $4 if part of a qualifying order over $25.

The Fiskars 8-Inch Original Scissors are our budget pick in our Best Scissors & Kitchen Shears guide. Meg Muckenhoupt writes, “If you’d rather not spend $20+ on the Kai shears right now, you can get almost the performance on common cutting tasks from the $9 Fiskars Original Orange-Handled Scissors. But they won’t last as long: The softer metal blades on the Fiskars won’t stay sharp as long as more expensive models, and the plastic handles can snap off with rough treatment.”

Cuisinart Enameled Cast Iron 7-Quart Round Dutch Oven

Street Price: $100 MSRP: $200 Deal Price: $77

Cuisinart Enameled Cast Iron 7-Quart Round Dutch Oven
A nice discount on our runner-up dutch oven pick

This drop lowers the price of the Cuisinart CI670-30CR to match last month’s deal price, the best price we’d seen on this Dutch oven since December of last year. The deal price is currently available only for the red color. We’ve started to see more sales on this model of late, but they still tend to last a few days at most. As a result, if you’re in need of a Dutch oven, move quickly to get one at a significantly discounted price. Shipping is free.

The Cuisinart Cast Iron 7-Quart Dutch Oven is our runner-up pick in our Best Dutch Oven guide. Kevin Purdy and Ray Aguilera write, “This slightly larger pot cooks evenly and allows for a nearly perfect amount of evaporation, but the handles are smaller and harder to grip than those of our main pick.”

Oster Jelly Bean 2-Slice Toaster

Street Price: $30 MSRP: $35 Deal Price: $20

Top pick
Oster Jelly Bean 2-Slice Toaster
A great deal on our top 2-Slice toaster in purple

At $20, this toaster is at the lowest price we’ve seen, besting the previous low price by $4. This is a very good price on a strong-performing 2-slice toaster (purple color only) with a small counter footprint. Shipping is free with Prime.

The Oster Jelly Bean 2-Slice Toaster is our pick for the best toaster. In our guide, Brendan Nystedt and Michael Sullivan write, “This simple, inexpensive two-slot model toasted bread, bagels, and waffles better than all of the competition in this price range. Unlike some toasters we tested, the slots are wide enough to fit thick, hand-cut bagels without needing to force them down. The plastic controls are easy to use and stay cool to the touch even during multiple rounds of toasting. Also, the Oster was one of the smallest toasters we tested, so it’s ideal for kitchens with limited counter space.”

Samsung NE59J7630SS Electric Oven

Street Price: $776 MSRP: $1000 Deal Price: $700

Top pick
Samsung NE59J7630SS Electric Oven
A solid discount on our top electric range

A nice drop on our top electric range pick. While we’ve seen this electric range fairly regularly at a sale price of $775, this drop down to $700 is now happening at multiple retailers and matches a low we saw in May – we’d expect to see the deals on this oven end in mid-July, as many are slated to end on 7/12. This particular sale is available on the stainless steel, white and black models (black stainless is $100 more). There’s an additional promotion available for the stainless model but it requires you to buy multiple Samsung appliances (4) for a savings of $150. If you planned to do so anyway, it’s a nice bonus, but this price is a good one on its own. Delivery is free.

The Samsung NE59J7630SS is our top electric pick in our guide to the best electric and gas ranges. Tyler Wells Lynch wrote, “The Samsung NE59J7630SS is the best freestanding radiant electric range for most people because it has all of the important cooking and cleaning features, with relatively few bells and whistles that might cause reliability problems down the line. Its cooktop is more versatile than those of other ranges at this price range, and includes a stronger power burner, a warm zone as sensitive as any other range’s, and a unique three-element burner. The oven cavity is larger than most and has a true-convection cooking mode. This range is also one of the few models that offers two self-cleaning modes. This Samsung’s build is sturdy, its design looks sharp, and its control scheme is more intuitive than that of its closest competitors.”

Better Homes and Gardens Clayton Court 5-Piece Patio Dining Set

Street Price: $440 MSRP: $700 Deal Price: $230

Update : This is a nice $70 drop in price on this patio furniture pick, but availability seems to be low, so it may not be available in your area.

We haven’t seen many deals on this low maintenance steel set of patio furniture, and this drop to $300 is the lowest price we’ve posted on our site. While it may have dropped lower in the past, it’s difficult to verify in price history. The main unfortunate detail to this deal is that there are no shipping options – it can only be picked up in-store after it has been ordered and shipped to the store. Since this is a patio furniture set, it will be fairly large so keep that in mind when it comes to pickup. However it’s still a great price to pick it up, just as long as you have the transportation capable of doing so.

The Better Homes and Gardens Clayton Court 5-Piece Patio Dining Set is our low-maintenance steel set pick in our guide to the best patio furniture sets we like for under $600. Kalee Thompson wrote, “Steel is about as low-maintanence a material for outdoor furniture as you’ll find. It’s strong and sturdy, it doesn’t require regular upkeep, it’s easy to wipe or hose down, and it will generally last years before the first sign of rust appears. Often these sets are marketed as “wrought iron,” though that is incorrect as technically wrought iron is iron alloy that has been forged by hand. With a generously sized table plus comfortable, rocking chairs and included cushions, as well as an excellent history of positive reviews and a super-low price, the Better Homes and Gardens Clayton Court 5-Piece Patio Dining Set is the best low-cost metal dining set we could find. It won’t seat as many people as our main pick, the IKEA Äpplarö set, and metal tends to be less popular than wood, but if a table for four meets your needs this set will likely be less hassle, last longer, and match or exceed the Äpplarö in comfort.

Tide Ultra Stain Release Free Laundry Detergent

Street Price: $13 MSRP: $13 Deal Price: $10

Top pick
Tide Ultra Stain Release Free Laundry Detergent
A nice drop in price on our top pick, available in-stores and with free shipping for orders over $35.

This is a great little deal on our top pick for laundry detergent. We rarely see this detergent move from it’s $13 price, so this $3 drop in price is actually a pretty great deal. Our pick is available in-store as well as for online delivery, so you can avoid the shipping fee by picking it up at a local Target. Shipping is $6, or free for orders over $35.

The Tide Ultra Stain Release Free is our top pick in our guide to the best laundry detergent. Leigh Krietsch Boerner wrote, “Because it performed incredibly well at removing both stains and smells, Tide Ultra Stain Release Free won our recommendation. This premium-priced formula from the most dominant brand in the laundry detergent aisle justifies its place at the top: It had excellent results on seven different stains in cold water, plus came in second overall in our odor-removing tests. That combo was a winner in our eyes. In many of our tests, this Tide formula beat the competition and usually came in second or third when it wasn’t first.”
