This is the same price as the Costco deal also flagged on SlickDeals today. But if you are not a CostCo member, then Best Buy is the way to get the deal.
These are very rarely on a serious sale. I bought the 10-oz., 1st-generation a few years ago for $65 (awesome deal) when Ember was clearing stock on the old model. Then last week for Black Friday, the Ember website was offering $10 off on the purchase of two mugs together. That's typically as good as it gets.
Note it's only available in blue, which seems to be Best Buy-only, i.e., the mug is not available in this color on Ember's website.
Below is the Best Buy link. Not sure if the deal lasts past today.
For those who are wondering why anyone would pay even $65 for a coffee mug, this thing works really well. It will keep your coffee at a set temperature for around an hour if you're away from its charging coaster. And if you keep the mug on the coaster at your desk, it will keep the coffee at a set temperature indefinitely. There is even an iOS or Android app that lets you adjust the temperature to your liking.
Yes, this is a luxury gift. But if you really like coffee (or other hot drink) and want to keep it warm (nearly) to the last drop, this is the best option.
