PNW Cyber Monday Picks 2019

In case you want to buy something because it’s Cyber Monday, but you don’t know what to buy… this week’s DL is celebrating Cyber Monday with a bunch of deals from PNW startups! Here we go!


  • 2048 Blast - If you like games like Candy Crush and 2048, check out my (super fun 😁) mobile game for iOS and Android. And here are a ton of promo codes for free gold on the App Store to get you started!
  • Cosmic Crisp - Not really a “deal,” but WSU invented a new apple that is supposed to be insanely good/disrupt the apple industry, and it just hit stores! But if you can’t find it, get some Cougar Gold instead
  • CrowdCow - Farm to table meat and seafood shipped to your door (they even have subscriptions). Their Japanese A5 Wagyu is amazing - and on sale for Cyber Monday!
  • FUNBOY - Luxe floats and inflatables for that influencer lifestyle. In addition to the floats you see the Kardashians hanging out on, they have winter stuff like snowmobile sleds (2 pack on sale today)
  • Gemma - Here’s a cool PSL spinout. Take a 2 minute hair quiz and get the perfect formulas for shampoo and conditioner for your hair. $32 off your order for Cyber Monday!
  • Looptworks - This Portland startup upcycles stuff like old NBA jerseys and Southwest airlines seats to create limited edition products. They’re offering 20% off this week
  • Mystery - Founded by a group of Convoy alums, this is a cool concierge-style service that sets up a night out without the planning. Check out the Geekwire review, and get $20 off with this code
  • Saalt - Rapidly growing company based in Boise with an amazing mission. Go read their founding story and why they started selling menstrual cups! 15% off online orders this week
  • Slumberkins - Two moms in Portland started this company in 2016 to create children’s books and toys that promote early emotional learning. Seems like a great Christmas present for parents with little ones!
  • Rad Power Bikes - The largest ebike company in North America is based right here in Seattle! You probably see them everywhere, and today is your chance to get $200 off a new ebike
  • Rumpl - Portland-based Rumpl got started when the founders started talking about why sleeping bags are so comfy and had a great idea to make a sleeping bag (i.e., puffy) blanket. Get one today for 25% off!
  • Pela - Up in Kelowna, BC, Pela is making compostable iPhone cases approved by Jay-Z (who led their last funding round), and as of last month, they’d sold over half a million cases. 50% off today
  • Wildfang - “A home for badass womxn everywhere.” If you want one of their badass Wild Feminist shirts or sweaters, they’re 40% off today!
  • Wiivv - This Vancouver-based startup uses 3D printing and computer vision to create custom insoles and sandals, using just your smartphone. $35 off everything today
  • Wyze - Amazon alums founded a startup selling smart home devices at really low prices. Pretty sweet Cyber Monday deals like a $5 smart bulb and $60 Echo Show + camera combo (how can it be so cheap??)


  • 🌟 Last but not least the DL is running an epic Cyber Monday promotion! This week only, forward the DL to a friend, and they can sign up for a free lifetime subscription ($9,999 value - conservatively)!
