99,000 Amazon shoppers rave about this leakproof Contigo travel mug — and it's nearly 40% off

Making a daily commute with a hot cup of coffee is like navigating an obstacle course. A disposable paper cup won’t keep your coffee hot for long, and it's easy to spill on your office duds. But Amazon has marked down the mega-popular Contigo Autoseal West Loop Stainless Steel Travel Mug for your morning joe — right now, it's almost 40% off.

Are you ready for piping hot coffee from a travel mug that seals on its own?

Why is this a good deal?

This is a tried-and-true mug that shoppers just can't quit — and it's way less of a hit to your budget than the popular-but-pricey Stanley Quencher. Pick it up today in classic black for $16, down from $26. It's in stock in a slew of different colors too, but prices vary.

Why do I need this?

This handy travel cup features Contigo’s "Autoseal" technology, which shuts the mug’s mouthpiece after every sip. That keeps any hot liquid from spilling or leaking, even if the mug is turned upside down or takes a tumble. To open the mouthpiece, just push the large button on its screw-on lid.

There's also this cool feature to consider, according to a five-star reviewer: "I love that you can drink out of either side of the lid. So, if you grab the mug with your left hand, you can bring it right up to your mouth and take a sip. Same with grabbing it from your right side. You don't have to turn the mug around or find the hole to take a sip."

The West Loop fits in most car cupholders, and the screw-on lid is top-rack dishwasher-safe. Contigo recommends hand-washing the mug's stainless steel body.

What reviewers say

This travel mug has more than 99,000 perfect reviews, which is mind-boggling even by Amazon standards.

One pleased shopper shared: "I have owned Contigo travel mugs for years and they are hands down the best travel mugs out there. I know the rave now is Stanley and Yeti mugs, but not a chance. Contigo beats both of them by price point, leak proof-ness, heat containment and style."

"I had just ordered Stanley coffee tumblers, which both ended up leaking and one ruined my partner's laptop and backpack," said another fan. "I would definitely recommend the Contigos over the Stanleys if you're still in the market for a new mug. These don't leak and can be flipped upside down without any issue. I try to err on the side of caution and not wash the lid in the dishwasher to make sure the plastic bits remain functional and sealing well, but the package does say that they are top-rack safe."

Another satisfied reviewer wrote, "I can personally attest to owning at least 20 of these Contigo cups. Some I like more than others. This particular one I like because it's stainless steel. I've tried to get it in my favorite blue color before and the coloring chipped off. But this one here is totally solid ... Coffee stays steaming hot all day. The cup itself is like a little thermos. Completely spill-free. And you can lock that feature so that your button does not accidentally get pushed in."

A fellow happy customer pointed out that it can keep "coffee hot for hours" and "iced tea cold for hours." And that's the most important thing, isn't it?

More than 99,000 shoppers say this is the mug to beat for any on-the-go sipper.
