The 5 best Amazon deals of the day
Get the Anker Soundcore Bluetooth Speaker for $25.99 (Save $4): If you’re looking for the best waterproof Bluetooth speaker around, this 4.6-star rated pick is a reader-loved option. Already on sale from $29.99 at $27.99, it drops an extra $2 if you check the coupon beneath the price. We dig the upgraded Anker Soundcore 2 (from $39.99), which is just a slightly souped-up version of this sale model. Both share a durable, waterproof exterior and deliver bass-rich sound that’s bound to please—especially if you’re outdoors. More than 43,000 Amazon shoppers love this portable pleaser, pointing out its long battery life, which is good for up to 24 hours.
Get the Apple AirPods Pro for $219 (Save $30): Like everybody else on the planet, we love these earbuds and consider them the best true wireless earbuds ever made. Made with silicone-tipped buds (an improvement over the regular Apple AirPods, which don’t have them), they deliver active noise cancelation and are easy to set up. Plus, they have a solid battery life—they can last up to five hours off of a single charge and come with a wireless charging case, which is good for up to 24 hours of total listening time.
Get the Beats Solo Pro Wireless Noise Cancelling On-Ear Headphones for $199.95 (Save $100): We haven’t tested these 4.6-star rated headphones yet, but they have close to 1,800 positive reviews on Amazon, which is enough to get anyone’s attention. Factor in a sale, and you’re golden. Featuring active noise cancelation, these Bluetooth-enabled headphones grant listeners up to 22 hours of listening time, according to the company. If you turn them off when you’re not using them, Beats says they may even run for up to 40.
Get the Echo Dot (3rd Gen) for $39.99 (Save $10): Smart tech can be intimidating but our favorite entry-level smart speaker is anything but. Right now, you can also get it for a nice little discount. While this compact device doesn’t offer the same great sound quality as other smart speakers on the market, its got an easy, non-complex set-up going for it. If you want to start exploring what it’s like to have a voice assistant through Alexa, this is a fabulous investment—especially on sale.
Get the Apple 8th-generation iPad (Wi-Fi, 32GB) from $299 (Save $30): Apple just launched the 8th-generation of the iPad and already, it’s on sale in the silver hue, which is remarkable. While we haven’t yet tested it, leaving the 7th-generation model as our reigning tablet champ, this one’s got an even speedier processor. That’s because unlike the 7th-gen, which was powered by an A10 chip, the 8th-gen was built with an A12 Bionic chip that makes it far more speedy.
Get the RAVPower portable charger PD 3.0 power bank for $29.99 (Save $10): The orders couldn’t come in fast enough on our last post for this handy little USB-compatible device, which has a whopping 5,700+-reviews from Amazon shoppers. While we haven’t yet tested it, we’re big fans of the brand’s mini USB car charger (currently unavailable), and this device is currently $10 off when you check the coupon box beneath the price.
Get the De’Longhi Nespresso VertuoPlus Coffee and Espresso Maker for $104.99 (Save $74.01): A nearly identical machine to our favorite single-serve pod coffee maker went on sale around National Coffee Day, and bully for you, it’s still at a great low price. With more than 2,800 fantastic Amazon reviews, this 4.5-star rated gadget feels heaven-sent for java lovers due to its elegant construction, large 40-ounce water tank and its ability to automatically eject coffee pods into a hidden container, which helps prevent burns. We also dug that you can brew to different coffee sizes (five to be exact) and that it produced rich, full-bodied coffee in every cup.
Get the Joseph Joseph Nest Colanders, 2-Pack for $7.49 (Save $8.50): Need a new strainer? This compact colander set is ergonomically designed to fit in your hand and also stacks together for storage, taking up less space than a traditional strainer would. While we haven’t officially tested it, this 4.9-star rated pair is a crowd-pleaser, with shoppers on Amazon raving that the easy-glide handle helps with holding. There’s even three knob-like feet, so you can set this kitchenware down in your sink without it tipping over. Check the coupon box beneath the price to save $2.50.
Get the Habor Instant Read Thermometer for $8.99 (Save $5): A good meat thermometer can go a long way, especially if you’re using our favorite affordable meat thermometer. It has a 4.7-inch long probe that not only provided accurate readings for everything we tested but kept our hands far away from steam. Additionally, it has more than 23,000 positive reviews and a 4.5-star rating on Amazon, with shoppers gung-ho about its streamlined look, easy-to-read face and ability to deliver ultra-fast readings.
Get the eufy RoboVac 11S for $179.99 (Save $40): This 4.4-star rated device is our favorite affordable robot vacuum, so it’s no surprise that our readers were excited over its less-than-$200 price tag. When we put it to the test, we were awed by how much dirt this baby was able to handle, as it picked up roughly 11.6 grams of dirt per run. That’s more than most iRobot models we tested! With nearly 29,000 glowing reviews on Amazon, this 4.4-star rated pick is great if you love clean floors but hate having to do the vacuuming yourself.
Get the Shark ION Robot Vacuum AV751 for $149.99 (Save $70): Smart vacuum cleaners can make tidying up around the house much easier, and right now, you can save big on this 4.6-star rated model. While we haven’t tested it yet, our lab manager, Jon Chan, says this Alexa- and Google Assistant-compatible device is best-suited for hardwood and short-pile carpets and can maintain floors between manual cleanings.
Get the Tree Hut Mango sugar scrub for $5.99 (Save $3.30): At 36% off is this exfoliating-yet-moisturizing body scrub, which boasts a whopping 36,500+ Amazon reviews.
