Every day, we comb through hundreds of sales on Amazon to find the ones that are actually worth your time. We look beyond price, which can often be deceptive in making things that aren’t actually on sale look like amazing deals, and consider everything from consumer reviews to price histories to our own test results to determine which deals you should care about.
Today, we found some awesome savings on super popular products, so if you’ve wanted to try the Instant Pot or finally get a 4K TV, this might be a great chance to finally get one (and save money in the process).
1. Under $100: An Instant Pot for large families and meal preppers
Whether you’ve got a big family to feed or you like to get all your cooking for the week done in one day, this 8-quart Instant Pot is for you. Not only does it double as a slow cooker, rice cooker, and yogurt maker, but it can make quick work of everything from frozen chicken to large batches of soup. Right now, you can get this model for $100, the best price it’s been so far this year.
2. Under $30: Succulents that would make amazing Valentine’s gifts
Amazon’s running a Deal of the Day on packs of succulents right now that we think would be perfect to put and pass out as unique Valentine’s gifts. They’re selling sets of 12 and 20, making them perfect for your kid to give to their classmates instead of candy. They’re also great if you’re ready to start a small succulent garden in your home! You can pick up a bag of succulent dirt and some small planters on Amazon as well, so you’ll have everything you need to transplant your succulents.
3. Under $100: Our favorite Alexa smart speaker
If you’re ready to try life with Alexa, you’ll love this deal on our favorite Echo smart assistant. We love that the Spot combines all the functionality of any Alexa device with a screen for a little extra perk. It’s also smaller and more affordable than the other smart display, the Show, making it the best balance of all the things Amazon does right with the Echo lineup. Right now, you can get this adorable speaker in white or black for just $100.
4. Under $350: A fantastic 4K TV
TCL’s Roku TV lineup is amazing. You get all the fun of 4K and Roku’s streaming platform in a totally solid TV that won’t cost an arm and a leg. The 43-inch model is currently on sale, and has been for a little while now. We love how affordable it is at just over $300 for a decent-sized screen. It’s great as a budget upgrade to your non-4K TV, and could be perfect in a den or kid’s room if you’ve got something bigger as your main TV.
5. Under $50: One of the most popular personal blenders
We recently tested all the best personal blenders and found this one from NutriBullet to be one of the best. It handled everything we threw at it with ease, and we found the large capacity of the blender to be a great perk for making more than one smoothie at once. The only reason it didn’t come out on top was that the cups were a little too bulky to take on the go compared to other options. If you’re not looking for something on-the-go, we think this model would be great for you, especially at its sub-$50 sale price.
