5 Deals You Need to Know Today: The Macy's Ultimate Shopping Event Extravaganza


Macy's has arrived with its self-proclaimed Ultimate Shopping Event just in time for the weekend. Check out this offer and more in our roundup of the five best deals we found over the last 24 hours.

Top Store Event
Macy's Ultimate Shopping Event
Store: Macy's
Discount: Up to 80% off + extra 10% to 25% off via "SUMMER"
Shipping: Free shipping w/ $25
Expiration: May 23

"Ultimate", as a descriptor, is not to be thrown around haphazardly. Doing so would be a guaranteed path to disappointment and Macy's would surely never want to disappoint any of us. And so in typically reliable fashion, they have avoided doing so by pairing this so called Ultimate Shopping Event with an appropriately good discount.

That discount is a savings of up to 80% off plus an extra 10% to 25% drop via magical coupon code "SUMMER". As the consumer, we are satisfied by the savings on offer. As the entity offering the deals, Macy's is pleased that we are pleased. And if we were to, in a rather surrealist twist, add a dash of personification to the very word "ultimate" itself, it is overjoyed that it has gotten to take center stage and not have its good name sullied. Everyone wins. Huzzah!

Top Shoes Deal
Merrell May Sale
Store: Merrell
Discount: Extra 20% off
Shipping: Free shipping w/ $49

I know the spelling and pronunciation differ (you might even say they're totally different words) but when will Merrell lock into a partnership with The Pokémon Company and employ loveable aqua mouse Marill as its mascot? Look at this delightful little scamp.

I'd buy whatever they wanted me to. In this particular case it would be something from a wide selection of men's, women's, and kids' shoes that are currently discounted by an extra 20%. That's right Marill, they are good value aren't they? Back in your Poké Ball you go now.

Top BBQs & Grills Deal
Weber Mesquite 4-lb. Wood Chunks
Store: Amazon
Price: $4.49
Shipping: Free shipping w/ Prime

How much wood could a wood chunk chunk if a wood chunk could ch– ah forget it. It's been done. What hasn't been done before though are this 4-lb. bag of Weber Mesquite Wood Chunks being at their best-ever price of $4.49. Which they are, right now at this very moment. You can buy them for that price I just mentioned. You can give Amazon money and they will in turn give you the hallowed wood chunks. One can exchange currency for goods and services you see. That's how this works. It's always good to go over the basics every now and then.

Top Video Games Deal
Epic Games Epic Mega Sale
Store: Epic Games Store
Discount: up to 75% off + extra 25% off
Expiration: June 16

There's plenty of excellently-reduced gaming goodness to be had in the Epic Games Store's latest sale with up to 75% off plus an extra 25% off in-cart on a wide range of titles. Ghostwire Tokyo, Dying Light 2, and Final Fantasy VII Remake are just a tiny sliver of the games you could save on.

Now this is good work from Epic, of that there's no doubt. It is however entirely overshadowed by the much more important news that Epic Games has put RoboCop into Fortnite and now things like this can happen. I declare video games to be good, once and for all.

Top Headphones Deal
AKG Y500 On-Ear Foldable Wireless Bluetooth Headphones
Store: eBay
Price: $29.99
Shipping: Free shipping
Lowest By: $17

These headphones aren't fancy-schmancy ones from the likes of Apple or Sony, but that does not mean they are meritless. Yes, I'm talking to you at the back, the scoffing audiophile. The AKG Y500s at eBay are $17 less than Amazon is charging and the best price we've ever seen. They've got up to 33 hours of battery life, ambient-aware external noise control, and a handy 5-minute quick charge feature for one hour of use.

Of course they won't sound as good as high-end headphones and they don't have active noise cancellation, but let me remind you that they are $30 and that many folk need only basic audio listening devices to get their music fill. Naturally, Audiophile Snob at the back has missed out on my impassioned plea as they were too busy rocking the Sennheiser HE 1 headphones, wondering if it was really worth remortgaging their house to afford a pair.
