Ninja’s Woodfire outdoor grill and smoker is 19% off for Memorial Day
Ninja grill and smoker on a picnic table.

If your Memorial Day cooking plans aren't really panning out, you can act really quickly and save the day with a cool, new, conversation-worthy pickup. What we're talking about is the Ninja Outdoor Grill & Smoker, a multi-purpose weather-resistant outdoor cooker that can do everything from BBQ smoking to competing with the best air fryers, all in one device. And, as a bonus, it is now on sale. Usually $370, you can get yours for $71 off, bringing the price down to $299. It's a part of the Best Buy's Memorial Day sale, which ends today. The good news is that you can buy online now and pick it up later in the day at your local store, saving your dinner plans from disaster. The bad news is that you'll need to do so quickly as this 4.8-star rated item is flowing off the shelves quickly (my local store only has two left).

Why you should buy the Ninja Outdoor Grill & Smoker
There's a lot to love about this cooker. For starters, it has 141 square inches of cooking space that fit in a compound area on your picnic table of less than 2 x 2 feet. And, unlike big iron grills, it only weighs 30 pounds. Chances are, you can probably lift it. But what really makes this one great is its versatility. As a grill, you can make up to 6 steaks for your family or 30 hot dogs for the whole neighborhood. Get your air fryer game on and make three pounds of chicken in the same batch. Or, barbeque up a nine pound brisket to take advantage of the Ninja Woodfire tech — just a half pound of Ninja wood pellets will get you the smoked flavor you crave. Generally speaking, customers praise the cooker for its ease-of-use and quality of smoking for the size.

Get this LaserJet printer for $119 in HP’s Memorial Day sale
HP LaserJet Pro MFP 3101fdw printer looks nice on a white stand beside plants.

With the big shift to working from home, printers have become an important part of everyday life, even if you don't really use one regularly, and while some of the best printers from the best printer brands can be very expensive, some budget-friendly versions are not. So, if you don't do a ton of printing on a day-to-day basis, a budget printer like the HP LaserJet M209dw is the way to go, and there's even a solid Memorial Day discount on it directly from HP. While it usually goes for $149, you can grab it now for just $119, which is a nice $30 knocked off the price.

Why you should buy the HP LaserJet M209dw Printer
The HP LaserJet M209dw is a monochrome printing laser that's great for things like text documents or even character sheets for those who want to play tabletop roleplaying games. It can print at a very impressive 30 ppm, so your prints will be done relatively quickly, while the monthly recommended print volume of between 200 and 2,000 pages should be more than enough for most needs. The 600 x 600 dpi resolution isn't too bad, although it is on the lower end, which is to be expected at this price point.
