Welcome to the new Jalopnik Deals feature! Our Commerce Team, led by Shane, is going to be trying to save all of you money by finding the best deals on items we think you're going to want to buy (i.e., no stick-on vents). Let us know if you'd like to see more or less of something!

We do this because we love you, but yes we also make money if you buy something through our links. Money we pour into terrible automotive decisions. — Matt Hardigree

Hello Jalopnik, I'm Shane Roberts, and I head up the Gawker Commerce Team. Hopefully you already catch some of our daily discount and product coverage on Kotaku, Gizmodo, Lifehacker, io9, and Deadspin, or took advantage of our Black Friday and Cyber Monday content we shared over to Jalopnik. What gets featured here will be ever-evolving, and we'll always want your feedback. There's also a suggestions post up on OppositeLock that Matt put together for us, so check that out as well.

No matter how long you've been driving, it's never too late to learn better habits. Automatic is a little Bluetooth dongle that plugs into your car's OBD-II port (found on almost any car made since 1996) and communicates with your phone to track driving habits, mileage, and engine problems. Best of all, if you're in an accident, Automatic will automatically alert the authorities and call your family, no subscription required.

Automatic normally goes for $100 around the web, but today you can take a $20 discount.

This growler is half off today, and you get to customize it with the monogrammed letter of your choice. Ideally, it would be opaque, but the clear glass is just a good excuse to drink your beer faster. It would make a great gift as well.
