Today's Big Deals
Our current period of home isolation is a great time to learn new skills, and the Social Distancing Lifetime Subscription Bundle from StackCommerce is chock full of learning opportunities.
$199 gets you lifetime access to all 24 Rosetta Stone language courses, which by itself is a $100 discount from Rosetta Stone's MSRP. You'll have lifetime access to all of Rosetta Stone's online software from your computer, your tablet, or your phone, and once you master a language, you can just move on to another one without paying any extra.
But that's not all the bundle includes. You'll also get lifetime access to 12min, which synthesizes and condenses popular business and self-help books into 12 minute summaries, which you can either read or listen to in podcast form. 12min releases 30 new book summaries every month, and you'll have access to all new and previously released content forever. 12min plans normally cost $69 per year, but with this deal, you're effectively getting lifetime access for free.
And finally, the bundle also features lifetime access to KeepSolid VPN Unlimited, which can disguise your internet traffic when you're on a public hotspot, or potentially let you, say, view Netflix content intended for another country, just by connecting to a VPN server in that country.
You need a printer for your home office, and we all know that inkjet printers can be frustrating. But if you don't need to print in color, a Brother monochrome laser printer fixes almost every home printer ill that you've experienced. It's fast: 32 pages per minute fast. It's reliable: there's no carriage to jam. It's affordable to operate: toner cartridges last longer and cost less than printer ink.
This model includes a flatbed scanner with a copier function, and $100 is the low end of its usual $100-$150 price range.
Brother HLL2390DW Monochrome Laser Printer | $100 | Normally $100-$150
All-Clad's stovetop kettle isn't just gorgeous (but it is, of course, gorgeous). Its aluminum encapsulated base means that your water will boil more quickly too. It normally costs $100, but is now on sale for $75.

Airlines are increasingly enforcing weight limits on carry-on luggage, and one way to get ahead of the curve is to invest in a lighter carry-on. Travelpro's Maxlite 5 21" carry-on shed several pounds compared to Travelpro's other rolling luggage without sacrificing features, and $102 is the best price Amazon's listed on the bag in nearly a year. You might not need it right now, but you'll be glad to have it when you're able to travel again.
Travelpro Maxlite 5 21" Carry-On Suitcase | $102 | Normally $108-$127
Your favorite cocktail bar might be closed, but with these oversized spherical ice molds, you can make gorgeous cocktails of your own at home. Normally about $10 for a pack of two molds, you can get them for $8 today on Amazon.
Beyond just looking great, the 2.5" spheres have less exposed surface area to your beverage than multiple, smaller cubes would. That means the ice will melt less, and thus your drink will be less diluted.
2-Pack Tovolo Sphere Ice Molds | $8 | Normally $10
This completely unique LED desk lamp looks like an artifact from the future, but it can be in your present for $37 with promo code Y26FFDIG (down from the usual $50).

As TVs have gotten thinner, their built-in speakers have gotten worse. Luckily, sound bars like the Sonos Beam sound amazing, are incredibly easy to set up, and can double as internet-connected music speakers using the Sonos app and your favorite streaming service. The Beam is almost never discounted from its usual $400, but you can get it on Amazon for $350 right now.
But the best part of the Beam is that it can connect to your other Sonos speakers like the Sonos One, creating a truly wireless surround sound home theater system, or a multi-room music system that sounds amazing no matter where you are in the house. The Sonos One and the microphone-free Sonos One SL are both also on sale for $50 off their usual prices, which are rare discounts indeed.
Sonos Beam Sound Bar | $350 | Normally $400 | Plus $20 Amazon gift card
Sonos One | $149 | Normally $199

Peak Design made its name as a camera accessory company, but now also makes the single best travel backpack I've ever used, an excellent duffel bag, and yes, gear for both DSLR owners and compact camera affionados, ranging from huge lens bags to unique straps and clips.
Peak's gear is consistently excellent, but also consistently expensive; it almost never goes on sale. But right now, pretty much everything the brand sells is on sale for 20-40% off, and most of it is down to the best price we've ever seen.
In particular, non-photographers won't regret grabbing the Peak Design Travel Line backpack (black/sage) for $240 from the usual $300. It's ruggedly built, can hold a shocking amount of gear, works with Peak's packing cubes and travel organizers, and can even fit under an airline seat if you're in basic economy.
