In an effort to both serve our readers and help support The A.V. Club, we are going to post daily links to deals and interesting items that we find over on Amazon. If you use these links to click through and buy something—not just the thing you clicked—on Amazon, we will see a portion of that income. You don’t have to do that if you don’t want to, but if you do, know that we appreciate it.

All sorts of food-related TV shows, including Good Eats, Chopped, and Cutthroat Kitchen ($2.99 an episode or $10.99 a season)


It’s almost Thanksgiving, so why not immerse yourself in shows that might help you make your annual holiday meal a little more delicious?

Up to 60 percent off luggage, backpacks, and travel accessories

Speaking of Thanksgiving: luggage. The holidays are a big time for travel, and you’re going to need a bigger suitcase if you want to stuff all your presents in there come Christmas time. Pick up a sweet suitcase or set of suitcases for a song on Amazon today only. If you’re a real nerd, you can opt for a set of packing cubes, which some people claim can revolutionize your whole “on the road” experience.


Volcano ($3.99 to rent, or $4.99 to own)


Remember Volcano? Came out in 1997? Starred Tommy Lee Jones and Anne Heche? No? Well, it’s on sale anyway.

The Shallows ($5.99 to rent, $9.99 to own)


We said this movie is “Hamstrung by a PG-13 rating,” and “squirms too much to come across as a true nightmare scenario.” That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t watch it if you’re into either shark stuff or Blake Lively, though.

Sing Street ($.99 to rent, $9.99 to own)


We gave Sing Street a B, saying it’s “like an agreeably sweet radio anthem, the song of the summer a few weeks ahead of schedule.”

PuraSleep cool gel memory foam mattress ($249.99-399.99)


Thinking about ordering a mattress online from a company like Casper or Leesa? Why not snag one from Amazon instead? This PuraSleep mattress is made in the USA and comes with a 10-year warranty, plus Amazon will even come and take your old mattress away for $80. It’s even naturally antibacterial, and is resistant to dust mites, mold, and mildew, just in case you sleep in a basement.

Up to 50-percent off women’s fashion boots


Ladies, let’s face it. We like boots. Amazon is helping fuel that love today with its big sale on 24 different pairs of clompers, from over-the-knee suede numbers to little ankle booties. Go pick something up and fully prep yourself for fall.

Handheld bell for runners, skaters, and bikers ($21.25, was $25)


Sure, if you’re running and you want someone to get out of your way, you could just use your voice, but this bell looks all cool and comes in rose gold, so maybe buy it anyway.

Touchscreen WiFi router ($269.99, was $299.99)


God bless the inventor of this product. Stop futzing around with uncomfortable cords and stupid, anti-user-friendly interfaces. This WiFi router lets you reset your shit with the touch of a button, and it even lets you request a service call from your internet provider. Hallelujah.

Jamstik+ ($234.98, was $299.99)


Learn how to play guitar with the Jamstik+, which syncs with Jamstik’s apps and uses sensors to give players instant feedback. According to the listing, you’ll be playing “chords in minutes.”
