    Promising review: "This is the cast-iron I have, and it just lives on my stove top because I use it literally everyday. To clean, simply hand wash (I usually opt for no soap, but you do you) and rub with vegetable oil to keep it nice and seasoned." —Rachel Dunkel, BuzzFeed Staff

    Price: $14.88 (originally $26.88, available in multiple sizes).

    Promising review: "I received this sweater yesterday and was pleasantly surprised at the quality for the price. I have a large collection of sweater coats most of them far more costly or part cashmere. This sweater is on the thicker side and works for fall. I wore all day and not a wrinkle!" —Love Shopping

    5. 38% off a universal phone mount that's surprisingly sturdy, offers 360-degree rotation, *and* has adjustable side support to make sure your cell stays in place the entire ride.

    Promising review: "Best phone holder I've had, and it's cheap. I bought a couple of other phone holders over the years from other manufacturers, and they never worked right, never stuck to the dashboard, never held up the phone when they pivoted, etc. This one mounts solidly to the dash, and is easy to put your phone in, and remove your phone from." —Patrick O'Malley

    Price: $9.97 (originally $15.99)

    Price: $23.98 (originally $49; available in sizes S–XL and eight color combinations)

    7. 34% off a portable paw cleaner for when your good boy has decided to wander into the muddiest field on planet earth before trotting all over your freshly-washed living room floors. Just add a little water, put each paw inside to be scrubbed by the silicone bristles, and that's it! Clean paws within seconds.

    Promising review: "Best. Thing. Ever. This product works like a charm. It gets the sand from between their pads, and is gentle enough that even my most stubborn pup tolerates it! I have a terrier/schnauzer that likes to dig, a mini golden doodle that is prissy about her paws, and a standard labradoodle puppy that is still very fuzzy. We have a farm where it is extremely sandy and we stay in a travel trailer. The amount of sand they were tracking in to the camper was driving me CRAZY. It takes me three minutes to clean and dry off all of their paws. Seriously the best purchase I have made!" —Rachel

    Price: $9.90+ (originally $14.99+, available in three sizes and colors).

    8. 46% off a pair of American Apparel leggings, because if they're your most-worn item of clothing right now (which, same!) it's always good to have a few extra pairs.

    reviewer wearing the black leggings

    Promising review: "These leggings are exactly what I’ve been looking for. I’m picky when it comes to leggings. It’s difficult to find leggings that are mostly cotton, but also with some stretch. I also like that it doesn’t have a super awkward, thin, tight, elastic band that cuts into my middle. I just bought two more pairs and will probably buy more." —JS

    Price: $14.99 (originally $28; available in sizes XS–XL and four colors)

    9. 39% off a seat cushion I truly wish was under my own butt right now as I write this. It's made with memory foam to cushion and hug your body to keep it supported as you sit.

    the black seat cushion

    Promising review: "Since mid-March 2020, I have spent more time sitting since working remotely from home and social distancing with no gyms open until just recently, that my tushy was hurting . Hurting turned into sciatica and made the work day unbearable without pain relief. I read good reviews about the Everlasting Comfort Seat Cushion for Office Chair and ordered one right away. Worth the money? Absolutely! Comfortable? Perfect for my tushy. I highly recommend this product for a chair in which one might be sitting for lengthy periods. I do not recommend this product for use in the driver’s seat in a motor vehicle, as it does elevate you somewhat in the chair. The design of this cushion also promotes better posture. Do yourself a favor. Order two because you won’t be able to use it when your significant other is using yours." —Citizen Kane

    Price: $24.17 (originally $39.95)

    10. 35% off a jar of aloe vera dog ear cleaner wipes to gently lift goop and gunk and prevent ear infections as well as wax buildup.

    Promising review: "My coonhound always seems to have smelly itchy ears. I'm hoping to use these as maintenance rather than having the vet charge every other month. The wipes smell nice, and make cleaning the gunk easy. They are really saturated, which I'm sure helps with the cleaning, so I followed up with a paper towel to help dry his ears afterwards. He didn't seem to mind at all, and I haven't seen him shaking his head like before." —Rina

    Price: $10.39 (originally $15.99)

    11. 38% off a pair of hoop earrings that'll look beautiful when you wear them with a chunky sweater or off-the-shoulder blouse.

    Model wears hoop tortoise-shell earrings with an off-shoulder blouse

    Promising review: "I love these! I ordered both the tortoiseshell and leopard and love them both! They each came in their own plastic pouch and each came with two sets of backings. They are really lightweight and stand out with my dark hair. They’re my new favorites!" —Rina

    Price: $5.53 (originally $8.99)

    12. Up to 34% off Bioderma products, including Bioderma cleansing water which is capable of drawing impurities to the surface of your skin like a darn magnet. This stuff truly banishes all remaining traces of foundation: the kind you thought was picked up by your cleanser but alas, was not.

    Promising review: "This is probably one of the only products that I have repurchased multiple times and will continue to do so. It's very gentle and it's super effective. There is no smell and it takes off any makeup easily. It doesn't need to be washed off, it's non-oily, and it doesn't dry out my already dry skin. On lazy nights, I will just use this to take off my makeup." —Tara Szendre

    Price: $9.90 (originally $14.90)

    13. 29% off a memory foam pillow for anyone whose old, lumpy cushions just aren't cutting it anymore. This one is ventilated to optimize air circulation = you won't wake up drenched in sweat.

    Price: $24.99 for a queen size (originally $34.99)

    14. 17% off a grooming glove because you can satisfy your fur baby's endless desire for some rubbies as well as your desire to not live in a house that's covered in dog fur. It's great if your dog or cat goes running at the sight of a brush.

    AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    "My dog is perfect in every way but he has recently started to shed and I am finding that all my clothes are covered in his fur. (According to his vet, it’s common for Frenchies to go through more shedding in the fall and spring to make way for a new ~seasonally-appropriate~ coat.) I had seen this pet grooming glove all over the internet, so I figured I’d give it a try. And boy oh good boy, it genuinely works. The glove is super comfortable and using it couldn’t be more foolproof: just put it on and run your hands through your pet’s fur. That’s it! The silicone grooves pick up so much fur with ease. Like, my dog looks close to hairless. HOW is he shedding so much!?!? After a few runs, I found that I would have to remove fur from the glove before continuing (you can pick up the fur with your other hand or run the glove under some water — either works) but it’s no biggie. The silicone actually makes it really easy to keep this clean." —AnaMaria Glavan, BuzzFeed Editor

    Price: $9.99 (originally $11.99)

    15. 47% off a three-pack of blue light blocking glasses so as you look at screens all day you can minimize their effect on your eye strain.

    Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "Really stylish and such a great deal! You get three for the price of one essentially. I keep one at my desk, one by my bed, and another in my laptop bag for travel. I get so many compliments on these and no longer have a headache working long hours in front of a screen. These are a must buy!" —Amazon Customer

    Price: $11.21 (originally $20.99, available in 16 combo pack options)

    Promising review: "My boyfriend and I were losing the battle to our pillow top mattress that seemed to keep pulling out fitting sheet out from underneath the mattress. We literally had to adjust it every day and now since having these we haven’t had to touch it once in the 3 weeks of having it!" —Amazon Customer

    Price: $7.97 (originally $12.99)

    17. Up to 45% off Bliss products including their single-step vegan resurfacing pads capable of ~peeling~ off dead skin cells with just one swipe.

    19. 20% off a doggie life jacket with a secure, adjustable fit so you can enjoy quality time with your pup by the water knowing they'll be safe.

    Promising review: "Our dog loves this life jacket! He can swim without it but just not well or for very long. In the mornings he would try to get into it himself so we would go throw the ball into the lake for him! Medium fit perfectly for our oddly shaped dog. Has different velcro and buckles to change sizes and make it a custom fit!" —Jessi

    Price: $23.99+ (originally $29.99+, available in sizes XS–XL and three floatation levels)

    Promising review: "I couldn’t wear this out running, but for more medium-impact workouts or strength training workouts this definitely does the job. I ordered the white color and it isn’t see through at all. Very thick, substantial material. Loved it so much that as soon as it came I put it on and wore to the gym. When I left the gym I ordered another one on my way to the car! May just have to get one in every color!" —Kayla F

    Price: $20.93+ (originally $30+, available in sizes XS–XL and seven colors)

    21. 20% off a silicone-free L’Oreal lamellar treatment that makes good on its promise of shine, shine, shine. This banishes dullness in eight seconds flat, giving your mane all that lustrous bounce but thankfully *none* of the weigh-down. / Via lorealparis/Instagram, Amazon / Via

    Apply this directly to wet hair avoiding the roots, massage it in for eight seconds, then rinse. Effort required = practically zero.

    Promising review: "i have very thin, dry, and damaged hair due constantly dying it blonde. I’ve tried so many hair products and different types of shampoo and conditioners, and nothing seems to really help my hair. But this stuff literally is magic. I’ve used it three times and I haven’t seen my hair look this good (shiny, healthy, hydrated)." —Nikki Minnis

    Price: $7.18 (originally $8.97)

    22. 30% off select Mario Badescu products, including a drying lotion to minimize pesky blemishes and a facial spray trio of lavender, cucumber, and rose.


    Promising review (drying lotion): "I can't say enough good things about this product. I have combination, sensitive skin and have acne mostly in my T-zone. I will never use another spot treatment because I've never had another shrink a pimple so fast. I can put it on the night before and in the morning the redness has dissipated, the swelling has gone down, and the overall pimple is smaller. It doesn't dry out my skin too much or irritate it." —Miller

    Price: $11.90 (originally $17)

    Promising review (facial sprays): "My husband and I are both obsessed with these sprays! The rose water is great to set your make up and refresh throughout the day, green tea is great to spray on your face first thing in the morning to help wake you up, and I love using the lavender at night to wind down!" —NoleChick95

    model spraying mist

    Promising review: "This stuff will make your makeup last and last! I have severely oily skin, which means that most foundations just slide right off my skin. And then I found this! I spray this on before I do my makeup, after I do any cream makeup (foundation, concealer, etc), and then again after I set with powder. This helps my makeup easily last from 7 in the morning the 7 at night." —Sadie

    the floss

    Price: $12.99 (originally $19.99)

    29. 14% off a pack of Affresh washing machine tablets we write about all the time, because reviewers swear by them to finally get rid of that mildew-y smell that might be lurking in the washing machine.

    Just make sure to clip the extra 15% off coupon at checkout! And btw, it works in both top-loading and front-loading machines.

    Promising review: "Washer started smelling a bit funky several months after we got it. I didn't understand why I couldn't just run bleach in my machine to clean it out occasionally, until I actually ran one of these tablets (free sample with my washer). The key is that the tablet goes in the washer drum, and doesn't dissolve right away. So as the washer runs through several repeated cycles of fill, agitate, and drain - the tablet is still there, sudsing up the water on cycle #2 and #3. If you just put bleach in the soap dispenser, it would all be gone after cycle #1. Also, this gets very sudsy and that probably helps it reach some areas of the machine that wouldn't otherwise get touched." —aberson

    Price: $11.98 (originally $13.98)

    30. 30% off a Stila liquid shadow — the formula itself is ultra blendable, lasts all day, and the shade options are both shimmery and stunning...but the best part is how easy it is to apply! Simply swipe, blend, and that's it. It looks like you put in a *ton* more effort than you actually did.

    the glitter eyeshadows / Via @stilacosmetics

    Promising review: "BEST GLITTER SHADOWS ON THE MARKET! I have five colors and all are gorgeous, it's surprisingly blendable for a liquid, and there's glitter fallout. The formula itself is great, stays all day, and you don't have to worry about using glitter primer." —Kaytlen

    Price: $16.80 (originally $24, available in eight colors)

    31. 20% off a citrus juicer to add a little zest to your kitchen cabinet. Fresh lime juice awaits.

    32. 20% off an Elizabeth Mott eye primer capable of keeping your shadow and liner in tact all 👏 day 👏 long 👏. That's right, folks! No creasing, smudging, fallout, or crying under the watch of this cruelty-free must-have.

    model before and after applying eye shadow and primer

    This primer is paraben-free and lightweight, plus it's infused with pearl powder to enhance the vibrancy of your shadow AND a sebum-controlling powder to stop oily lids in their tracks.

    Promising review: "Let me start by saying that I have used nearly every eyeshadow primer available. From expensive to cheap...none of them hold a candle to this. I have very oily skin, but this primer lets my shadow last a full eight hours or more. I could get maybe five or six out of the other brands if I'm lucky! Thank you to Elizabeth Mott for finally making a primer that lasts! I seriously love this stuff." —Melissa Mae

    Price: $10.78 (originally $13.48)

    33. 20% off a set of Rubbermaid vented lid storage containers with lids that snap onto the *bottom* of containers, meaning you'll never have to go on a 15-minute hunt for the right pair while your leftovers are sitting out.

    the containers

    Promising review: "These food containers are awesome! The price was so affordable, the fridge is now better organized, and the quality is very good. I love the vented tops you can use to microwave food, and my favorite soups, quickly and easily. I find that there is less use for the mini containers, so I would've liked another couple larger ones instead. But overall, the material is very durable and they're totally leakproof! They keep food, especially fruit and veggies, fresher for longer. My mom has trouble opening things with her hands but doesn't struggle with these. So these should be appropriate for most seniors with weaker grips. This is a great set with an excellent value, and I would highly recommend it!" —Amazon Customer

    Price: $15.99 (originally $19.99; for a 42-piece set, also available in a 60-piece set)

    34. 30% off a 40-pack of Frito-Lay chips including Ruffles, Cheetos, Fritos, Funyons, Doritos, and more — if your pantry is lacking snacks, you'll probably want to add this to you cart ASAP.
