Store: B&H Photo Video
Price: $549
Shipping: Free shipping
Lowest By: $450

The flex in the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 13th-Gen. i7 16" 2-in-1 Touch Laptop naturally refers to its screen flexibility and positional rearrangement prowess but in the case of this offering at B&H, it incurs a double meaning as the retailer flexes its discounting muscles and my, what muscles they are! Bulging with an immense $450 reduction. Pulsating with a price that matches the best we've ever seen. Any rumors you hear of steroid use are completely unfounded. This is totally natural legitimate deal musculature and all who say otherwise are jealous liars. It features a 13th generation Intel Core i7-1355U processor, 16" 1920 x 1200 IPS touchscreen, 16GB RAM, and 512GB SSD.

Vince Camuto Men's Slim-Fit Spandex Super-Stretch Suit PantsVince Camuto Men's Slim-Fit Spandex Super-Stretch Suit Pants
Store: Macy's
Price: $15
Shipping: Pickup, or free shipping w/ $25 for members
Lowest By: $25
Expiration: April 15

No pair of pants with the words "spandex super suit" in their name should look this reasonable, but they probably wouldn't sell many pairs that only looked adequate when stretched over legs like these. No Rob Liefield antomy required for these pants, and also not much money, since they're only $15. Vince Camuto, mild-mannered fashion designer, would make for a fine Golden Age alter-ego though.



ASICS Members Week SaleASICS Members Week Sale
Store: ASICS
Discount: Up to 50% off + extra 20% off via "APPREC8U"
Shipping: Free shipping w/ $50
Expiration: April 13

If ASICS wanted to show appreciation for its loyal customer base, they might ideally not do so in the form of eyesore coupon code "APPREC8U" but this is exactly what they have done. Thus, will grit our teeth and work through, attempting to focus purely on the extra 20% off this abominable code gets us, in addition to discounts of up to 50% off. True, it's hard to forget about this mangling of the written word entirely but sweet sweet savings will help to numb the pain and inner turmoil consuming us. They always do.



TP-Link Kasa 4MP 2K Outdoor Security CameraTP-Link Kasa 4MP 2K Outdoor Security Camera
Store: Amazon
Price: $36.95
Shipping: Free shipping
Lowest By: $3

The TP-Link Kasa 4MP 2K Outdoor Security Camera is $3 under the next best price we could find. It's also a $3 price drop since our last mention. That mention? It was three weeks ago. Three instances of three? What is going on? And you'll need to click the coupon on the product page for the camera how many times? Yes, three times - otherwise the discount won't apply. Ok that's not true in the slightest, just the one instance of clicking will do but admit it, you believed. If only for a second.



Home Depot Spring Black Friday EventHome Depot Spring Black Friday Event
Store: Home Depot
Discount: Lots of 'em, so many
Shipping: Free shipping on most items
Expiration: April 30

You might have thought Black Friday was a November event. You might have thought it was a Friday event. But now look: Home Depot have made a fool of you, and all you get in return is... oh, lots and lots of discounts. That might be okay, actually. We're looking at 25% off storage and organisation; up to 30% off patio, grills, and more; up to $200 off tools and outdoor power equipment; and up to $2,300 off kitchen appliance packages. And instead of November, it's in April, which is objectively a better month, on account of it being now rather than five months ago, or seven months hence. Just plain chronological facts.
