Best cheap meal kit delivery deals: Blue Apron, Gobble, Hello Fresh

Don’t let being stuck at home stand in the way of a nutritious dinner. Sign up for a meal kit service like Blue Apron and have all the (fresh) ingredients — portioned and ready to cook — delivered to your door. Never tried a meal kit before, or maybe you already have a subscription to one but want to try something different? Don’t miss these fantastic meal kit delivery deals.

Just keep in mind that these offers are only valid for new customers. To be clear, that’s first-time customers to each service and not to the meal kits scene as a whole. This means you won’t be able to try Hello Fresh on the cheap if you’ve used it before, but you can still take EveryPlate for a test drive if you never had one of its beloved budget boxes left on your doorstep.

Martha & Marley Spoon

$40 OFF your first order

One of the more high-end meal kits out there, Martha & Marley Spoon — the brainchild of Martha Stewart — squeezes fine dining into a box. Just like the others, the recipes change weekly.

Sun Basket

$90 OFF your first order + FREE shipping and a FREE gift

If you pride yourself on only eating organic, non-GMO meat and vegetables stored in recyclable containers, then look no further than Sun Basket. There’s something for everyone, too. Paleo? Vegetarian? Pescatarian? Diabetic? You’ll find no shortage of recipes. All of the meals are nutritionist-approved too, coming in somewhere in the region of 500 to 800 calories per serving.

Black Friday and the greater shopping holiday is the best time to find amazing deals. People wait all year until then to get low prices on TVs, electronics, games, and so much more. You'd be forgiven for thinking it's the best time to grab some juicy smartwatch deals or Google Pixel deals. But actually, Best Buy is offering a crazy deal on the Google Pixel Watch right now, that's equivalent to those Black Friday prices we've seen in the past. Normally $350, it's yours for just $300, which is $50 off. You can grab the 41mm Google Pixel Watch in any of its available colors including Black/Obsidian, Silver/Charcoal, and Gold/Hazel. Snag that deal below or keep reading on why you might want a Google Pixel Watch on your wrist.

In our Google Pixel watch review, Andy Boxall praised the watch for its comfortable design and integration of the Fitbit app for comprehensive activity and health tracking support. In addition, the circular design with minimal aesthetics blends well with modern fashion in just about any of the colors you can select from. You can also style the software aspect, with unique watch faces, colors, and layouts -- and you can even swap between digital, analog, and modern looks.

This is the excuse you need to upgrade to an August Smart Lock
August Wi-Fi Smart Lock installed on door.

It's easy to overlook the convenience of a smart door lock until you actually use one. In most cases, a standard deadbolt does just fine, and you can lock, and unlock your door using a traditional key. But what if your keys weren't needed? What if you could unlock your door with your phone, with a quick tap, or remotely? That's precisely what the best smart door locks have to offer, and also why they're a staple of the best smart home devices you should own. Of course, it's always best to get one at a steep discount, which is what Best Buy is offering right now, and for one of the best smart locks out there too. The August WiFi Smart Lock with a Smart Keypad -- normally sold separately -- is on sale for $40 off. On any other day it would cost you $270, but right now, Best Buy is letting you have it for $230. You can either grab that deal below or check out some of the finer details of the August WiFi Smart Lock.

In our August Smart Lock review, although it was for an older version, the points still stand because the features have carried over from iteration to iteration. Our resident reviewer praised it for its easy installation process, auto lock and unlock functionality, sturdy build quality, and the fact that it doesn't need a bridge or any other devices to set up. Just install, connect to WiFi, and go. If you're unfamiliar with what smart locks actually do, feel free to read the primer: 7 things you didn't know a smart lock could do. Perhaps one of the coolest features is the option to temporarily let guests and family into your home, even if you're not there, without actually handing them physical keys.
