1. Philips 75″ Class Roku smart 4K HDTV from Sam’s Club

Thegadgetlocker purchased this TV on sale from Sam’s Club for $599. At the time of this writing, it sells for $729. Meanwhile, the best deal we found was $699.99 from BJ’s Wholesale Club with free delivery.


2. Garmin Venu fitness tracker

The consumer champ is really enthusiastic about fitness trackers in general. “[They’ve] become such a big part of my life,” he says. “I walk around 5 million steps a year or some 15,000 steps a day on average. Recently, I did 18,124 steps in a single day.”

Thegadgetlocker notes that he likes his Garmin Venu because it “guilts me into working out every day of the year.”

Compare at $184.89 used from eBay or $274.99 new from Walmart.


3. Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra smart phone

This is actually an “ultra expensive” phone, according to Thegadgetlocker! But on the plus side, he notes that it takes better pictures than a high-end camera.

You can find a 128GB version for $949.99 at Best Buy. That’s $250 off the $1,199.99 list price.


4. Tesla Model Y standard range

Thegadgetlocker picked up this sweet ride for $39,990 and says it’s the “greatest SUV ever.”

‘Nuff said!


5. Graeter’s ice cream

“There is one thing in life on which I will not compromise,” Thegadgetlocker confesses, “and that’s ice cream.”

“I have an affinity for high butter fat, high quality ice cream. It is my weakness. For much of my adult life, I ate a pint of ice cream a day. Today, though, I have only about two pints a month. I’ve really modified my intake because I was struggling with weight as a result of my habit.”

The consumer expert calls Graeter’s — a longtime Midwest favorite that hails from Cincinnati — “the best ice cream in the world.”

Meanwhile, inquiring minds want to know what Thegadgetlocker’s favorite flavor is. That would be Toffee Chocolate Chip!


6. Saucony men’s Cohesion 11 running shoe

These sneakers start at $44.95 on Amazon.

“I run slowly no matter what shoe I wear,” Thegadgetlocker quips.


7. Sam’s Club khaki pants

The consumer champ says he gets his khakis for under $10 from Sam’s Club.

“I always look for single-digit prices, either new or used. That way I never have to worry about paying too much,” he says. “On the down side, I know that my clothes look like they cost single-digit prices!”

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, Thegadgetlocker is a size 32 waist.


8. Acer 715 Chromebook

The penny pincher is a huge fan of Chromebooks and calls his Acer 715 “my do-everything computer.”

You can find a variety of Chromebooks for under $200!

The consumer expert picked up this mattress on sale from Costco for $499. At the time of this writing, it sells for $679.99 at the warehouse club.
