The morning trek to work can be a little frantic no matter how you get from Point A to Point B, and to make matters worse, on days when you're running late you inevitably spill coffee on yourself at Point C.

We can't do anything about traffic, crowded public transit, or bad morning radio DJs. But for one day only, Amazon's going to keep your work clothes coffee-stain-free. Today's Deal of the Day gives you the chance to own a souped-up 16-ounce version of Contigo's AUTOSEAL Transit Stainless Steel Travel Mug for the bargain price of $13.99. Contigo's brilliant design saves you from spills and leaks with a clever mechanism in the mug's lid. To take a sip, you push a button on the side of the lid with your thumb. Once you remove the pressure from the button, the lid automatically seals itself. Once it's sealed, you're protected from spills, leaks, and all the other clumsy variables than can spoil a commute.

Contigo's flagship AUTOSEAL West Loop mugs have piled up over 11,000 glowing Amazon reviews, and the version that's on sale today is even nicer since it ups the ante with a non-slip grip sleeve and bottom pad. It usually retails for $24.99, so being able to pick one up for $13.99 is a steal. They're available in three colors today, so it's time to retire your ancient commuter mug and make your mornings smarter and spill-free. 

Mental Floss has affiliate relationships with certain retailers, including Amazon, and may receive a small percentage of any sale. But we only get commission on items you buy and don’t return, so we’re only happy if you’re happy. Good luck deal hunting!
