Nothing makes me excited to start the work week quite like finding out it’s a good day to score a deal. And this Monday is delivering a hefty payload of savings on the kinds of things that I think you’ll be excited about. When I do my daily online bargain hunting, I’m not just looking for flashy price drops or discounts that sound too good to be true. I dig deeper into the nuances of every deal I find to make sure it’s worth your time.
By examining price histories, combing through customer reviews, and using data collected in our labs and practical testing, I am able to ensure every deal I share with you is not only a good value but a product you’ll be happy with. So without further ado, let’s check out Monday’s best deals.
1. Lowest price: The best noise-canceling headphones of 2019
When you want the best noise cancelation, comfort, and reliability in a pair of wireless headphones, you used to turn only to Bose, but Sony’s new WH1000XM3s actually outperformed Bose in our lab and real-world tests. And right now they’re back down to the lowest price we’ve seen so far. (Granted they’re new, but a $50 discount is super impressive for headphones in this price range.)
Not only are these the best noise canceling headphones of 2019, but they’ve also got dynamic control that allows you to choose how much noise cancellation you get. Our testers also noted that, while these headphones have a lot of features, they’re not overly complicated, making them exceptionally user-friendly.

2. Save 25%: One of the best travel mugs
Stop spending all your money at Starbucks! This is what I tell myself every Monday morning when I succumb to habit and place my order on the train so it’s ready when I walk in the door I probably spend at least $20 a week on coffee I could easily make at home, and my baristas know me by name now. It’s not ideal for my wallet, but I don’t have a good travel mug and rarely have enough time to really enjoy a cup before work, so I was thrilled to see that not just one but many different Contigo travel mugs are all at (or near) the $15 mark right now. These typically $20 mugs are one of the best options we’ve tested, and they’re easily the most popular among our readers and Amazon shoppers in general.
Get a 16-oz. Contigo Travel Mug on Amazon for $14.99-$15.99 (Save $4-$5)
3. Our favorite soundbar under $200 is at its best price again
Let’s be honest: The sound that coming from your TV isn’t the best, and if you really want to be immersed in whatever you’re watching, you’re going to want to give your TV a major upgrade with a soundbar. The Polk Audio Signa S2 is the best soundbar under $200 that we’ve ever tested because it packs improved sound and a sleek look into a reasonable price point. It also has Bluetooth (naturally), different modes for movies, music, or night audio, and three different “Clear Voice” settings to make TV show and movie watching more enjoyable.
Right now, you can get it for just $149 at Amazon, which is $51 off and matches its Black Friday price, making it a great time to seriously consider upgrading your TV’s sound. And you’ll have it in time for game seven of the Stanley Cup too (Go Bs!).

4. Nearly half off: The Google Home Hub
Whether you’ve already got a Google Home or Mini, or you are super into the idea of having a virtual assistant at your beck and call, the Google Home Hub is crazy discounted right now and I think it’s worth a look. Drop is knocking $70 off the typically $150 price tag for the next week, giving you a chance to score a solid device for nearly 50% off. The Hub is awesome because it’s got a screen to display everything from your daily agenda to the weather, to your most recent cat photos. It’s also got a leg up on the Echo Show because it can play YouTube videos, which is great if you’re learning a new skill and want to pull of an explainer video but your hands are tied.
Just note that Drop won’t start shipping the Google Home Hub until June 28, but I think the savings makes the wait more than worth it. And if you want to try out life with a virtual assistant for a smaller investment, you’ll be happy to know B&H Photo has the Google Home Mini for just $29 right now, down from $50.
Get the Google Home Hub on Drop for $79 (Save $70)
5. Save 14%: The best probe thermometers
Father’s Day is less than a week away, and a top-notch probe thermometer would make a great gift. Even if your dad considers himself a “grill master,” he could always use a little help determining the temperature of whatever he’s cooking to make the most succulent meat. These fancy meat thermometers allow you to constantly monitor your meat’s temperature without opening up the grill and letting out precious heat. Right now, you can get two of our favorite probe thermometers at a discounted price.

The Thermoworks ChefAlarm is the best grilling thermometer we’ve ever tested because it was the most accurate probe we tested, and it was also the only one that you can calibrate, and right now it’s $8 off on the Thermoworks site. If you want something a little more affordable, we gave the Thermoworks DOT the Best Value award, and it’s also discounted 14% right now. We think Dad would love either one, and we know your burgers and steaks will taste way better too. Everyone wins!

6. Save $50: One of the best hair dryers
Dyson is one of the brands that is synonymous with high quality, and their hair dryers are no exception. But with great quality comes great responsib—I mean a high price tag. Usually, this hair dryer rings in at a whopping $400, which is steep for most of us. In fact, our tester said the cost was the only reason it wasn’t her top pick after she tested all the best hair dryers.
Right now, you can get it for just $350 from Drop. And here’s the thing, a $50 discount still puts this in the “probably too expensive” range, but sometimes it’s more about having the thing to have it. And if you love styling your hair and using the fanciest tools, maybe it’s worth splurging on this Dyson hair dryer. You know it’ll last for years to come, and it will give you a salon-quality blowout at home. If you get it from Drop, it’ll ship on July 2, so surprise yourself with a new hair tool in July (or it might be the perfect thing for that bridal shower next month).
