1. Score up to 45% off roundtrip tickets to Hawaii today through Air Canada, Alaska, American, Delta, Hawaiian, JetBlue, and United Airlines. If you're flying out from the West Coast, these nonstop tickets are as low as $300, while East Coasters could pay as little as $570. That's a sizable discount given West Coast tickets are usually worth about $550, while fares from the East Coast are usually over $850. Some dates even include Thanksgiving. Baggage fees, however, are extra.

  • Product: Roundtrip flight ticket to Hawaii
  • Dates: October 2018 - February 2019. Some routes include Thanksgiving, but all exclude Christmas and New Year's Eve.
  • Deal: Up to 45% off

2. Save $600 on a brand new version of the 15" Apple MacBook Pro boasting 1000GB, the largest amount of storage capacity Apple offers. It comes with a touch bar and also boasts a 7th-gen 3.1GHz Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD. Best Buy is offering the 15" MacBook Pro for $2,700, which is nearly 20% less than its usual price of about $3,300. However, if you're not interested in extra storage capacity, the other versions are cheaper and are $300 off. You can buy the 512GB for $2,500, for example.

3. Icelandair is selling tickets to Europe for as low as $329 roundtrip. Destinations include Paris, London, Amsterdam, Oslo, Frankfurt, and more. It looks like flights leave predominantly from East Coast cities, with Seattle being the only city on the West Coast I can see offering this deal as well. This deal will end before 3pm EST today, October 18, 2018. If you don't catch it in time, however, don't worry: regular readers know we often feature similar deals to Europe.

4. You can get $50 off a Brother MFC-J995DW multifunction printer boasting one year of ink today. It is usually worth about $200, but readers can buy it from Amazon, Best Buy, and Wal-Mart for 25% less at $150. The printer comes built-in with a scanner, fax-machine, auto-document feeder, an auto-duplexer so you can print on both sides, as well as USB, Ethernet, and Wi-Fi connectivity and more. While Best Buy customers give it a 4.5/5, be aware that Amazon buyers gave it a 3.8. CNET reviewed these comments and says there was no one "common issue", however; some just didn't like print quality, while others suffered paper jams.

5. If you're on the market for a mixer, check out KitchenAid. Their products are so durable, this person's mixer is still going strong despite the fact it's from the 1970s! The Wirecutter regularly recommends the brand as well. The publication particularly praises the KitchenAid Artisan Series 5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer, dubbing it the best stand mixer out there thanks to its stellar performance, versatility, and reasonable price. For a limited time, you can even score 30% off of the stand mixer and buy it for $300 -- $130 less than its usual price of $430.

  • Product: KitchenAid mixers

6. Countless frugal bloggers recommend cutting cable and for good reason: cutting cable is an easy way to save up to $2,931 every year! You're not really sacrificing much either as truthfully, there was never a lot to lose in the first place. (High-five to those who didn't groan at the pun there!) There really is no need for cable these days, thanks to Netflix, Hulu, streaming TV services, and more. Check out this list of other cheaper alternatives you could use instead. If you really want to watch local channels, get a digital antenna, which will allow you to receive these for free.
