Whether you’re searching for a Mother’s Day present, a graduation gift, or something for yourself, Amazon’s got some great offers on products we love today that could be just right. We hand selected the top 5 products that not only had worthwhile price drops but are also well worth the investment.
1. Our favorite electric kettle
If you drink a lot of tea, you should own a kettle. And if your kettle sucks, you should seriously upgrade. This Cuisinart kettle is the best we’ve tested and it’s also my personal favorite. I had one for a while, but I dropped it (dumb) and had to replace it. Idiot that I was, I opted for a cheaper brand and I regret it every day I make tea, so always.
This one beeps when the water’s ready, has a lighted window to check the water level, has a super easy lid-open button, and most importantly heats water fast. It rarely goes on sale but right now it’s back down to its lowest sale price.
2. The fanciest Amazon tablet
If you want a tablet, but don’t want to shell out hundreds of dollars for a Samsung or Apple product, Amazon’s got your back. The Fire tablet lineup is designed to be more affordable in general, and their top-of-the-line model, the Fire HD 10 is back down to its Black Friday sale price.
Typically priced at $150, the newest, biggest, and most impressive Fire tablet is only $100 right now. With a Amazon Alexa built in, 10-inch 1080p display, and a 10-hour battery life, it’s the perfect way to enjoy tablet life without emptying your bank account.
3. A Harry Potter wand remote
If you love the world of Harry Potter, you probably need this remote. Program up to nine gestures to do things like adjust the volume, change channels, play or pause movies, and more. This novelty remote was originally over $50 and typically sells for $44, but this Deal of the Day brings it down to nearly its lowest ever. If you’re not a wizard, Harry, maybe you know someone who would be over the moon to get such a fun gift.
4. Our favorite affordable fitness tracker
Tracking your steps can help motivate you to move more each day, and a fitness tracker doesn’t have to be expensive to be effective. This Garmin tracker is the best affordable option. It keeps things simple with no app, making it easy to monitor your movements, but more importantly its battery lasts a full year before you need to charge it. More expensive trackers need to be charged on a near-daily basis, which can be a real pain.
Garmin recently released a newer version, the vívofit 3, which costs $58, so we’ve been watching the price fall to new all-time low prices since early this week, making it a great time to buy your own.
5. A smart air conditioner
Be smart about staying cool this summer. Instead of peeling yourself off the couch to turn the AC on or scrambling to find a remote that kind of sucks anyway, imagine controlling your window unit with nothing more than your smartphone. Sounds great, right?
Well this Frigidaire smart AC can do that, but it has another trick up its sleeve too. It works with Alexa, so if you have an Echo smart speaker, you can just ask Alexa to cool things down for you.
Right now, it’s $50 off its usual $300 price so you can invest in a more comfortable summer and be ready for the first heat wave.
Prices are accurate at the time this article was published, but may change over time.
