Sleek as a Dyson, minus the high price tag, this ultra-affordable Inse Cordless Vacuum just might make you enjoy cleaning your floors! At a mere three pounds, it’s super-easy to take with you from room to room, and its 45 minutes of run time should be sufficient for sucking up dust, dirt and debris from the whole house. We love that it turns into a handheld vac for reaching higher surfaces, and the fact that it has a five-stage filtration system to capture 99.99% of particles floating around is the cherry on the sundae. This is the lowest price we’ve seen it for in, well, ever.
“I love this vacuum!” raved a contented cleaner. “Powerful suction and so easy and light. I have medium-pile carpet and it cleaned up more dog hair than my old upright vacuum. And vacuuming stairs is a breeze with this cordless vacuum. My aging shoulders took a hit with trying to vacuum stairs with my old vacuum, but this one is so light and the swivel on the beater brush made quick work of my stairs, Plus, no need to worry about unplugging and plugging halfway up the stairs with this cordless wonder. Easy assembly, easy cleanup of the debris container, and easy-to-use attachments. I vacuumed 1,200 square feet in total, all on one battery charge at max speed.”

At just about half a pound, the FiPlus PowerGrip is like an ultra-lightweight extension of your arm — and what it lacks in heft, it certainly makes up for in dexterity. With this handy grabber tool, you’ll be able to grasp hard-to-reach items above and below with ease, and its rubber claws ensure a secure hold. The durable metal rod extends as far as 32 inches for easy reaching and folds down for space-saving storage when not in use. Its grips are also equipped with magnets for lifting metallic items small and large.
“I’m 71 with serious back issues that keep me from bending over much at all,” wrote an impressed shopper. “These grabbers have helped me literally hundreds of times over the four months I’ve owned them. I have picked up everything from a vitamin E gelcap to a can of tomatoes. Highly recommended and will buy again whenever I wear these out.”

Finally ready to trade your fraying wired earbuds for a sleek pair of Apple AirPods? These second-gen top-sellers have hundreds of thousands of perfect ratings for a reason — well, multiple reasons: clear, rich sound quality, 24-hour battery life and the fact that you won’t find yourself tangled up in cords if you accidentally fall asleep with them in. Apple is one of those brands that doesn’t really need to have sales, since their products are so in-demand. That said, we’ll take $30 off when we can! We usually only see these priced lower during major sales events, and not by very much more than they are now.
“I’ve had a real problem with finding comfortable earbuds and for years have stuck to the one [pair of] corded earbuds that were comfortable and didn’t fall out,” wrote one Apple convert. “I thought it was finally time to try these as I transitioned to only having a cell phone. I was surprised at how comfortable they are. The sound quality is good, and the charge lasts a long time. I’m a believer!”

Why keep sleeping on your flat-as-a-pancake pillow when these cloudlike Cozsinoor Cooling Pillows exist? (And at this price for a set of two!) Their soft, hollow fiber filling strikes just the right balance between cushy and supportive, while the breathable cover helps keep night sweats at bay. Plus, they were designed for all sleep postures, whether you prefer to lie on your back, side or stomach. Be sure to apply the on-page coupon for the lowest price — a ridiculous $11 per pillow (the cheapest we’ve seen!).
“I was honestly skeptical about these supposedly firm pillows,” shared a relieved fan. “First of all, they are not firm at all, they are like sleeping on a cloud. I have not had any neck pain since I have used them. I don’t know what the magic is in them, but I certainly hope that they continue to be wonderful and fluffy.”

If you’ve been curious to see what all the hype is around iPads, now’s your chance! This 9th Generation Apple iPad has 64GB of memory storage capacity, along with a crisp Retina display, front and back cameras and Touch ID to ensure that your information stays secure. Use it for everything from checking your email to browsing the web, sharing photos and even sketching. (You’ll want an Apple Pencil for that last one.) Apple products will sell whether they’re on sale or not, so the fact that this tablet is currently $80 off is pretty exciting! We’ve only seen it dip lower during Prime Day. ‘Nuff said.
“I got this for my 93-year-old mom,” shared a generous gift-giver. She’s “not very tech-savvy, but she loves her iPad. It has become her gateway to the world. She relies on FaceTime calls, as she is near-deaf, and being able to see someone’s face really helps her understand them better. She uses it to watch her favorite shows and listen to her fave music. And she loves to play games on it. She is finding the Siri functions very helpful too.”

If you’re thinking this handheld gadget closely resembles an electric toothbrush, that’s essentially what it is — only instead of putting the Rubbermaid Reveal Power Scrubber in your mouth, you’ll use it to blast away dirt and grime from every crevice in your bathroom (or any small area in your home needing a good cleansing, for that matter). It does practically all of the heavy lifting for you via its 6 volts of power and oscillating head, which scrubs a whopping 60 times per second. According to the brand, it also works twice as fast as a standard scrub brush. A time- and energy-saver? We love to see it.
“I never write reviews — but I had to write about this amazing little tool,” gushed a five-star reviewer. “I just bought a new house and wasn’t going to replace kitchen and bathroom floors. I spent an hour or so with this little tool and some grout cleaner, and my old kitchen floors look alive again. I’m shocked. And very, very happy.”

Enjoy football, Hallmark movies and all of your favorite streamers on this 40-inch Vizio smart TV, which has 1080p HD resolution and LED backlight to bring you clear, vibrant visuals. It’s also equipped with Apple AirPlay and Chromecast, allowing you to watch anything from your phone or tablet right on your TV, and it has more than 140 apps — including Netflix, Disney+ and YouTube — built in for instant easy access. We’ve never seen the price dip lower than this, so it’s a great time to buy!
“VERY satisfied with this TV,” wrote a verified viewer. “It has great quality picture and sound … It is easy to stream from any phone (though we have iPhones), and the integrated streaming apps are very convenient. I am super-happy with this purchase.”

In the event that you realize your tires are starting to sag and there are no rest stops in sight, you’ll be so glad you had this VacLife Tire Inflator in the trunk. It fills them right up in seconds when plugged into your car’s 12V power outlet, and its 9.8-foot cord is long enough to let you reach all four tires without having to keep adjusting the position. It can also blow up things like air mattresses and inflatable boats! Prime members can snag it on sale for just $28, but be sure to apply the on-page coupon for the full discount.
“Being a senior, I appreciate the manufacturer putting detailed, easy-to-follow operating instructions on the casing of the air compressor in addition to a paper pamphlet in the shipping box for reference,” wrote this methodical reviewer. “A plus for me is that I do not now need an external tire pressure gauge to check the pressure in my tires.”

Car floor looking a little crumb-y? Then it’s this No. 1 bestselling car vacuum to the rescue! Weighing just 2.4 pounds, it’s easy to maneuver around your ride, whether you use it to zap up pet hair from the seats, fast-food remnants on the floor or the dust blanketing your dashboard. It comes with three attachments for targeting different types of spaces and messes, and its 16-foot cord means you’ll have no trouble reaching the trunk. This model even has a handy light and HEPA filter to help purify the air! It’s currently 50% off for Prime members.
“This is the best auto vacuum I have used,” wrote an impressed customer. “It gets the things that other vacuums have not,” like the “fine dust … that collects on the dash and console. The attachments here seem built … for a car, as does the design and shape of this machine.”

Not only is this Cuisinart 12-Piece Knife Set going to give your kitchen a lovely pop of color, it’s also going to make slicing and dicing a lot less taxing. The premium stainless steel blades are sharp, for sure, but also have a ceramic coating to keep food from sticking to them. Plus, their individual hues allow you to color-code, should you want one knife reserved for meat, one for veggies, and so on. Oh, and did we mention they come with a lifetime warranty? A good knife alone can cost as much as this whole set at full price, so the fact that they’re now less than $5 each is like a slice of heaven.
“This knife set made me a pro in the kitchen,” wrote a happy home cook. “They cut like butter. They wash like glass. … I actually purchased these knives for my husband and my son. My husband is the cook in the house, and my son is learning. I wanted them to have good stuff to use and no more of that cheap junk that you have to saw to cut meat. These knives cut in one little slice. Now I’m in the kitchen cutting up stuff, probably for no good reason.”

They’re nearly 50% off for Prime members — about $1 for each of the five sponges in the set.
“As a professional makeup artist, these sponges are absolutely amazing!” gushed one beauty buff. “Much better than all the other major brands out there. These beautiful sponges make sure your foundation and powders glide on like butter. This is my second order.”

Finding a bra that’s comfortable, supportive, offers full coverage and doesn’t look like it was made during colonial times is a pretty impressive feat — but we think we’ve done it. This Playtex 18-Hour Wireless Bra has tens of thousands of perfect ratings, thanks to its cooling, moisture-wicking fabric, four-way wireless support (no painful digging!), Magic Ring construction for a natural lift and smoothing satin panels on the sides and back. With 14 lovely colors to choose from, it’s a really pretty undergarment, too! A good bra is a worthy investment, and $15 is practically unheard of these days! This one doesn’t go on sale for less than its current price very often, and we’ve seen it priced for over $20 before. (Honestly, that’s still a good deal!)
“This bra says 18 hours and completely lives up to that promise,” raved a happy fan. “It fits perfectly when you measure for the proper fit; it is soft, not scratchy and does not cut into my shoulders to provide support for my large chest. I am absolutely getting more!”

“The magnetic tiles are a perfect toy for the industrious and busy toddler!” exclaimed a happy grandparent. “They are super sturdy and make building by little hands an easy success! Our 2 1/2-year-old grandson will spend an hour at a time building and enjoying imaginary play with these colorful tiles.”
