1. Down $150: The best robot vacuum around
When it comes to robot vacuums, we think the iRobot Roomba i7+ is the best you can buy, and it’s down from $799 right now to just $649, saving you a cool $150. Named our absolute favorite robot vacuum, the i7+ has everything you’d want in a robot vacuum, including strong suction and the ability to dutifully clean your floors and carpets with little effort. In our tests, it picked up 10 grams of debris per clean, making the i7+ perfect for weekly cleaning. We also love the included Dirt Disposal dock that sucks dirt from the bin into a sealable bag you only need to throw out and replace once full. With excellent performance and added features like room mapping and voice control, the price is well worth the investment. Amazon buyers agree, with more than 10,000 of them giving this vacuum an overall 4.5 star-rating, calling it the “best Roomba yet.”
2. Save 5%: Our favorite car phone mount
Our favorite phone car mount is on sale right now from $29.95 to $28.46, a savings of 5%. One of the most important features in a phone car mount is a secure hold of your phone and great suction, and this iOttie Easy One-Touch mount excels in both departments. It’s sturdy and adjustable so you can position your phone, including any smartphone that’s up to 3.5 inches in width (that includes many iPhones, Samsung Galaxy devices and others) within the jaws that snap shut to keep the phone in place. We love that with this secure grip and the sticky gel pad in the suction cup, you don’t have to worry about your device going flying if you slam on the brakes, or the phone slipping off while you drive. More than 7,500 Amazon buyers love this mount, too, confirming that not only is the suction pad very strong, but it doesn’t leave residue behind, either.
3. $10 off: An ultra-popular tactical flashlight
A solid flashlight is a tool that will come in handy again and again, and the PeakPlus rechargeable tactical flashlight is a great one to add to the collection—and right now you can get it for $10 off, bringing the price down to $16.99. More than 13,000 reviewers have given this sturdy model a 4.6-star rating, and it’s easy to see why. Not only is it powered by a rechargeable battery (or, if needed in a pinch, three AAAs), it’s water-resistant and has adjustable light modes, making it suitable for virtually any situation. Grab one to store in your car trunk or glove compartment or to bring with you on camping and hiking trips. “Far better than the super-high-money, high-maintenance flashlights out there,” commented one happy Amazon customer.
4. Under $20: These psychedelic stress balls
Stress balls are so underrated for both kids and adults, and you can’t get any cooler in design than the NeeDoh Schylling Swirl Groovy Glob stress ball set, on sale for from $19.95 to $17.95, saving you 10% on the three-pack. Experts say these stress balls are great for helping kids (aged 3 and above!) deal with anger and anxiety. In fact, experts told us that they can help mellow kids out with multi-sensory, colorful and squeezable satisfaction. There’s no reason adults can’t use them during their times of high stress, too, with Amazon buyers noting that squishing the balls is very satisfying. Filled with a non-toxic jelly-like compound and durable to hold their shape and not break open with even the most intense squeezes, they can help you, or your kids, reach a wonderful state of calm and tranquility.
5. Save $50: This attractive fire pit
As the cool fall weather approaches, it’s time to start thinking about how to extend patio season, and a fire pit like the Sunnydaze Crossweave outdoor fire pit, which is down from $248.99 to $199, a savings of $49.99, is a perfect idea. More than 2,200 Amazon shoppers rate this fire pit 4.7 stars, with the vast majority saying they would recommend it to others. They love that it’s easy to assemble (ideally with two people!), that it has tons of space to accommodate a large fire and that it’s light and easy to move around. Made of heavy-duty alloy steel that is resistant to rust, the crossweave pattern gives this fire pit a touch of elegance for any backyard or patio. In fact, most reviewers love how it looks as well as it works, calling the fire pit a “substantial piece of yard art.”
