The Best Cyber Monday deals, sci-fi trilogy, and marketing essay…

The Best…, 11/27/2017

Actual footage of me hunting for Cyber Monday deals this morning.

“The Best…” is a daily resource designed to provide you with THE BEST content out there. Each day we will pick a handful of cool, mind-opening things that we think are worth sharing with you. Our daily picks could be anything from the best books and podcasts, to the best movie trailers and wacky thoughts.

Have suggestions for what we should include? Let us know via social media, email us at info[at]themission.co, or leave a comment on this article. Enjoy!

Today’s Giftsicle is brought to your by our friends at Biostrap. The movement to better quantify and take control of your health is just beginning. We’ve tried many different health and fitness trackers, and up until now, haven’t found any that we love. Biostrap has changed that, which is why we asked them to sponsor our list of 11 Best Technology Gifts. We only use products we love, from companies that we trust, and Biostrap fits the bill!

A big thanks goes out to Biostrap for making great tech, and helping support independent media like The Mission! You can use the promo code BLACKFRIDAY to get a 20% discount on the Biostrap Platform.
