Top Apparel Deal

Wrangler Men's Loose Fit Jeans

Do You Need It?: We like to encourage our deal-slingers to opt for those bargain bin beauties in almost all cases, but there are some essentials that are worth parting with extra bucks for big brand names. Jeans are one of those items. Luckily however, Amazon has discounted this pair of Wrangler pants to an astonishingly low price, so you can bag high-quality without breaking the bank. They're available in sizes from 30x32 to 42x32.
If you haven't done so already, you can sign up for Amazon's fashion newsletter to receive an extra 20% off coupon via email. That will additionally cut these pants to just $7.68.

Do You Need It?: Refurbishing your computer can be a costly effort, but this Amazon sale, and its many low price tags, caught our eye as a budget-busting way to save on an upgrade. Prices start from just $4.89, making it one of the best sales we've seen on these items in recent months. Two items of particular interest are the Intel Haswell Core i5-4670k 3.4GHz Quad-Core CPU(pictured) for $189.99 (a $40 low) and the ASUS Dual Band N900 802.11n Wireless 4-Port Gigabit Router for $99.99 (a $30 low).

It's dropped $4 in just three weeks to an all-time low and, what's more, is less than three times cheaper than a shipped unit at any other store. It features a universal valve adapter.
