Top Apple Deal
Apple AirTag 4-Pack
Price: $76.88 EXPIRED
Shipping: Free shipping
Lowest By: $13
Expiration: November 11
A really funny joke would be attaching one of these to an actual apple. I don't know what the punchline would be specifically, but you can fill in the blanks for yourself. Apple AirTag, because people keep stealing your apples. There's something there. You could use the other three for luggage or your phone or your car keys or whatever, but at least one must be spent in pursuit of finishing my joke. Anyway: in a nice moment of thematic solidarity, we've done some price-tracking on these trackers, and this is, would you believe it, the best price we've seen in a year? That's a rhetorical question, your opinion is moot in the face of sheer financial fact.
Top Grocery Deal
Walmart Thanksgiving Dinner
Price: From around $7 per serving
Finally, a chance to recreate the promo segment for Bam Bam Bigelow's 1993 Survivor Series team, on a reasonable budget.
More specifically, Walmart gives you the option of choosing from a "Quick & Easy" Thanksgiving option, for a convenient premade meal, or "From Scratch", which simply provides you ingredients from which you may freestyle your own masterpiece. Although I'd argue that a "From Scratch" option should require your capturing, slaughtering, and butchering the various birds and meats, cultivating the cheeses, and canning your own cranberries. Incidentally, "Go can your own cranberries" is this holiday season's hottest mild rebuke.
Top Shoe Deal
adidas Men's Terrex Shoe Sale
Discount: Up to 50% off EXPIRED
Shipping: Free shipping for members
Expiration: November 9
I would argue that Terrex is, before anything else, a valid pronunciation of "T-Rex". But in this instance, it is this: shoes, and those shoes are discounted by as much as 50%. Hiking shoes, to be specific. And while I'm sure that, alongside the Gore-Tex waterproof membrane that adorns many of them, they have plenty of features that are sympatico with a hiker's needs, I think you could get away with wearing them in most other contexts without drawing the ire of the sartorially censorious.
Top Video Game Deal
GameStop Limited Time Offer
Discount: $5 off w/ pickup
This is how you know that, as the gaming world increasingly turns to digital downloads and playing the one Game-As-A-Service for six years without pause, GameStop staffers are getting lonely. "Please," they cry, in the form of a $5 off $15 via in-store pickup offer. "Please come visit our stores. We need human contact. Remind us that there's a world outside this maze of Funkos. We promise you can go right back to playing Spider-Man 2: 2 Spider-Mans." And hey, $5 off. You might as well.
Top BBQ Deal
BioLite FirePit+ Outdoor Firepit & Grill
Store: Woot! An Amazon Company
Price: $159.99 EXPIRED
Shipping: Free shipping w/ Prime
Lowest By: $90
Expiration: November 11
The idea of controlling a real fire's intensity with a Bluetooth thing on your phone feels weird. Everything in my brain screams at me that outdoor fires should occur within a circle demarcated by loose stones, intensified or calmed by the addition or depletion of fuel, informed only by the fuzziest of guesswork. But this is undeniably safer and probably more legal, and so the recommendation comes easy. Especially since you'd pay almost $100 more elsewhere. That's the Woot effect. An Amazon company effect, lest we forget.
