Great gadgets on summer clearance at Brookstone
Unfortunately, it seems that summer is drawing toward its inevitable yearly close. And perhaps the biggest bummer about this season’s end is that we’ve seen a number of great gadget sales over the last few months, for events such as Father’s Day and graduation ceremonies, ranging to the upcoming beginning of the school year.
The good news is, there are still some gadget sales out there in the last days before we start to move into the holiday season and the cycle of yearly refreshes. One of the biggest currently taking place as the season dwindles is at Brookstone — the retailer is running a sale on all kinds of items, with discounts ranging from 20 to 70 percent (and an extra $15 off on top of that). Better still, on top of the sale prices, you can also nab as much as 5 percent Cash Back. We’ve picked a few of our favorite gadgets on sale that are worth your attention, but there are plenty of other items worth checking out in the sale as well.
Last gasp of summer (gadgets)
A great first stop during Brookstone’s clearance sale is gadgets that are about to go out of season, as their discounts are likely to be the deepest (and we’re not quite out of the heat and humidity yet). If you’re thinking about continuing to have some fun in the sun, whether poolside or at the beach, check out a pair of Schooners II Wireless Speakers. They’re waterproof and come with a smartphone-compatible transmitter so you can access all the music on your devices, and they’re to $100 from $130.
You might also want to check out the Grill Alert Talking Meat Thermometer, which is down to $70 and can help you make the most of your late-season parties with perfectly cooked steaks and burgers. Also available to augment your grill capabilities: an Instant Marinator, which is great for any time you forgot to marinate the meat you intend to cook, so long as you’ve got five minutes (and $40 for its reduced price tag). If entertaining’s not your thing, consider an item that could help you with another outdoor activity – a Golf Scope. Great for figuring out distances on the course, it’s down to $10 from $20.
All kinds of other stuff
The gadget sales don’t stop with outdoor goodies. There are lots of other items that might catch your fancy and which have great prices. Take, for example, the Buhel Speakglass Bluetooth sunglasses, which turn your glasses into a microphone and earpiece for taking phone calls, and which are down to $159 from $215. Or the Nomad Compact Solar Panel, which unfolds to catch the sun’s rays and can charge your handheld devices when you’ve got no juice left – and which is down to $82 from $100.
With tons of other options in a number of categories, from bath to games to travel, there’s a little something for everyone in Brookstone’s clearance sale. And it’s certainly not the only retailer clearing out stock for the summer — shop around and find some great prices.
