If you are heading back to the office and need some work attire, check out Banana Republic factory. Lots of stuff on sale, including extra 40% off clearance. The real magic happens, though with code TAKE50, which takes $50 off a $100 order *pre-extra percentage off*.

It's almost literally free clothes:

Make sure you chose free basic shipping (5-7 day) at checkout. It defaults to expedited for $7 extra.

I was too late. It looks like they realized what was happening and nixed it. The code no longer works on clearance but I may actually pick up some of the other sale priced stuff. Some of it is steeply discounted but not "clearance" so the code still works on that stuff. Thanks for posting. 👍

Win $2,000 and a Nintendo Switch Lite for playing video games for 21 hours

https://fox4kc.com/news/win-2000-and-a- ... -21-hours/

^If you live in KC and you're going to play a ton of video games anyways why not?

Afterwards you could spend the money on a nice GS 9F.

Google Pixel Buds A-Series: $99 -Ship June 17
In, Clearly White or Dark Olive
https://store.google.com/US/product/pix ... rm=herocta

Pixel Buds 2: $129
https://www.kohls.com/product/prd-46751 ... &gclsrc=ds
What's different?
There are some small differences, however. The Pixel Buds 2 were already relatively lightweight, but these are even a tad lighter -- Google says the Pixel Buds A are "about 20% lighter across the earbuds and the case" compared to the Pixel Buds 2. Along with Clearly White, they come in a new Dark Olive color and incorporate slightly different materials and aren't two-tone. The inside of the buds have a glossy, as opposed to matte, finish and its color matches the color of the outside of the buds. Additionally, the inside of the case also has a glossy finish and its color matches the color of the buds.

The other thing you'll notice is that the nozzle that you attach the ear tip to is now made of plastic instead of metal, which presumably is more durable. Also, the Pixel Buds A have two charging pins as opposed to three and they're missing a sensor. I was worried that meant they had no ear-detection feature (that's the feature where your music pauses when you pull the earbuds out and resumes when you put the buds back in), but it turns out that Google's engineers were able to optimize in-ear detection in the Buds A with one IR sensor, according to a spokesperson. So no issue there.

The case is the same -- it's nice and compact -- but unlike the Pixel Buds 2, the A-Series doesn't have wireless charging, just USB-C charging. These are also missing the swipe for volume control feature -- you can't run your finger across the bud to adjust volume, you now have to use the volume controls on the device you're streaming from or access Google Assistant by simply saying "Hey. Google," then tell it to raise or lower volume. For Android users Google Assistant is always-on, listening for your voice commands like Siri does with the AirPods, so you don't have to tap a button to access it (unless you turn off the feature).

Lastly, the A-Series doesn't have the Attention Alerts feature that detects certain ambient sounds, like a baby crying, dog barking or an emergency vehicle siren, and alerts you while you're wearing the buds. I have a feeling that not too many people bothered with that experimental feature, but a lot of people liked the swipe to control volume feature -- it's one of the Pixel Buds' signature features. Personally I can live without it for the price reduction.

Similar performance
Like the Pixel Buds 2, the Pixel Buds A are equipped with Bluetooth 5.0, but they're powered by a new chipset. When the Pixel Buds 2 first came out, there were widespread complaints that the wireless connectivity wasn't rock solid -- people were getting some dropouts -- and while subsequent firmware upgrades improved performance, Google appears to have addressed any connectivity issues with the A-Series. I had almost no dropouts during my testing time, although like every other true-wireless earbud these aren't completely infallible.
https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/technolo ... ar-AAKFXg6


Hard pass for me, I listen to mostly Rock and the inability to adjust volume on the earbuds is a non-starter. I did buy the Bose Sport Earbuds for $150 on sale last summer at Best Buy. While they do sell for more, periodic sales happen. Not to mention the sound quality is superior and worth the $50 price difference, and they have been the most comfortable *wireless* in-ear buds I've worn.

I'm not sure what Google aims to accomplish with the A series, they're basically crippled and lack any exciting features. Spend a little more on a name brand to get more, spend a little less or the same on lesser known brands to get more...

That would be pretty cool if it came with the matching cup.

Haha! I just realized the cup wasn't a part of it. /whoosh

Yeah, these are great in the office but at home, a $15-25 coffee maker is good enough for me. Not about to pay K-cup prices for a few seconds in the morning.

Ray Ban is running a promo for $50 off polarized sunglasses, and Top Cash back has 15%. It's still higher than gray market, but probably the best deal you'll get straight from Ray Ban or an AD like Sunglass Hut.

BeFrugal has a whopping 21% cash back at adidas right now. Also, code EXTRA10 takes additional 10% off sale items. So $180 MSRP Ultraboost shoes come to ~$89 net after cash back.
