    1. A bedside bassinet for 32% off you can place right beside the bed to keep your little one safe and snug, and keep them at arm's reach during late night feedings...making falling back asleep easier on everyone.

    Parent in bed with baby in bassinet

    Promising review: "This bassinet is everything I hoped it would be. It’s so easy for me to see her and get her out in the middle of the night for feedings. I was scared to co-sleep with our baby in our bed so this allows us to still have her very near to us and is also safer because she is still in her own space. I have had this for about two months now and I highly recommend it. We are very happy with the product." —Marcella 

    Price: $136.79 (originally $199.99; available in two colors)

    2. A Nouhaus massage chair and ottoman for 20% off that'll look lovely in your nursery. It reclines, swivels, and includes a foot rest. Oh...and it has Bluetooth speakers. I really and truly can't think of a better chair for falling asleep in when you're in the nursery with your baby all night long.


    This chair won the Red Dot Award for its “Incomparable Functionality and Aesthetic." It's designed with four rollers that knead your neck, back, and thighs. You can choose a full body massage or focus on a specific area. Speed can be controlled, as well as percussive, straight roll, and circular kneading patterns – or a mix of all. There are also on/off airbags to massage your hips and glutes. This much to take in.

    Promising review: "This was the single most expensive item I've ever bought besides a car. This chair is a 10 out of 10. I can move it with not much effort. It looks absolutely beautiful in any room. It's comfortable even when it's not massaging. I look forward to a massage at the end of a hard day's work with a drink in my hand. If you have the money get this chair it feels amazing. This is comfort that pays for itself!" —R.

    Price: $1,759.99 (originally $2,199.99; available in four colors)

    3. A mod bunk bed for 26% off that's gonna make your kids' room look Instagram-worthy, no matter what kind of mess they've made on the floor. This also converts into two single beds, which is gonna be useful if you kids decide they are sick of sharing.


    Promising review: "I am happily surprised by the quality of this bed. The company is family owned (third generation), based in Canada, and the products are made in North America. Everything lined up perfectly, the hardware is solid, the instructions clear and easy to follow, and the resulting bed is solid and looks great. I love it. Nice design, quality build and finish, and the fact that we can split it to two beds in the future once the novelty of the bunk has worn off extends the life and value considerably." —asfit

    Price: $584.99

    4. An under-the-sink water filtration system for 38% off, so you can grab a glass and drink straight from the sink, knowing it's already filtered perfection.

    The system hooked up in the cabinet under a kitchen sink (it's about the size of a small fire extinguisher)

    It has a two-step filter that removes 99.99% of contaminants, and it comes with direct connect hoses to hook right up to the standard 3/8" valves in U.S. kitchen sinks. It's designed to be installed in under three minutes.

    Promising review: "We have town water and it seems they are putting more and more chlorine in it every year. We should be getting used to it and tasting it less and less, not more! The refrigerator filters are super expensive and weren't cutting it. Every time I put a glass to my mouth it smelled like a swimming pool. I searched the internet and decided to give this a try due to the positive reviews and affordability. Wow! easy install (I'm an avid DIYer). And the taste! The chorine taste is just gone! No more overpriced fridge filters for us. I love that the filter replacement procedure is basically the same as a fridge. Just twist and remove. We love it so much I teed off the fridge line and put a dispenser at our sink as well. The flow on this thing is just amazing! And the water tastes great! Don't waste your money on the expensive, complicated ones. My parents have a three-chambered, name brand filter at their house. It was expensive, the replacement filters are expensive, it is a pain in the petunias to replace the filters, and the flow rate is pathetic! But guess what! Our water from this filter tastes just as good as theirs at a fraction of the price, plus it's way more convenient, plus the flow rate is way better. I just can't say enough. Love, Love it! You will too!" —BJ

    Price: $56.24 (originally $89.99)

    5. A convertible stroller for 31% off that's so chic your baby just might have a better ride than you do...not that your mini van isn't cool. It's cool!


    Promising review: "I absolutely love this stroller! It was super easy to put together and it is very sturdy. Our baby used to hate walks but being able to lay in the bassinet made them enjoyable. Once she started hating the walks in the bassinet we switched to the seat and now she gets upset if we DON'T take her out lol! I would absolutely recommend this stroller, especially to first time parents like us who are not sure what to get. Saying that only because we got a different stroller before baby was born and using it on a few walks quickly learned that it is not good at all. Got this one afterwards and it is perfect!" —Cristina Koval

    Price: $343.99 (originally $429.99; available in four colors)

    6. A wavesurf shaper for 24% off to turn rocky, uneven lake waves made by your boat into smooth, curved, and *perfect* ocean-like waves that are primo for surfin' when your family spends the day at the lake.,

    Promising review: "Wow, just wow. Surfing with this has made a huge difference!!! I use this on my 2014 Moomba Mobius LSV. I now fill both the rear bags even to 900 lbs. each on both sides and this thing throws a clean long wave to whichever side its not mounted to. I don't have to list the boat anymore, making it much easier to drive and so much faster to switch riders from different sides. It looks the exact same as the picture shows, and it floats. I've never had it fall off during surfing and even forgot to remove it once and came up to speed 20+ mph before I realized it was still on and it never came loose. It floats so if you accidentally drop it while mounting it you don't have to worry about it sinking to the bottom of the lake. I wish I had bought long ago!" —Joel

    Price: $249.96 (originally $329)

    7. An Instant Pot 11-in-1 with an air fryer for 35% off so you can cook up Michelin-worthy meals with minimal effort.

    Instant Pot with a chicken in it

    Promising review: "After listening to dozens of clients and friends talk about their air fryers, I decided it was time to bite the bullet so to speak. Consumer Reports rave reviews led me to the Instant Vortex Plus. I LOVE LOVE LOVE ❤️ IT! Everything seems to taste better cooked in an air fryer. Even salmon is more moist and flavorful. Plus food cooks more quickly than traditional oven or fryer methods. The Vortex is large capacity so it’s easy to cook two or more types of food at the same time. Do it... you won’t regret it! Salmon and fries for two all cooked together." —Rosanne Heideman

    Price: $129.95 (originally $199.99)

    8. A kids' Fire tablet with a kid-proof case for 50% off so you can finally use your phone again. You never thought your kid would be raised by Candy Crush, and YET.

    the fire tablet

    Promising review: "We love our tablet. My son is three years old and loves all the videos and games — all educational! I get to set it up to where it’s age-appropriate items and I can also switch profiles to mine and do things on my profile. Pretty great device and he can play on some apps without WiFi! Bigger plus. Great purchase." —Alyssa

    Price: $69.99 (originally $139.99; available in three colors)

    9. A Bissell Smart Purifier for 34% off a with a true HEPA filter designed for large rooms to tackle dust, pollen, smoke, odor, and pet dander – your allergy-prone family might finally stop it with the sniffles (at least after the tears of joy you cry when you notice how well this works).

    A black rectangular air filter next to a model's bed

    Promising review: "I have had this plugged in for almost a full month now and have noticed not only a complete difference in the air quality and in my allergies but a huge decrease in the amount of dust that I am having to wipe off of surfaces. I opened up the front of it out of curiosity this morning and saw all of the dust that I would normally be wiping off of surfaces or breathing in, was on the filter. I was shocked by the amount, especially considering the fact that I vacuum daily. I also love the fact that you can put it against the wall and that it is fairly quiet. For what it has been able to do, it is a great value for the price. Buy this! You will not be disappointed." —Sig1920

    Price: $151.99 (originally $229.99) 

    10. A 2-in-1 Graco convertible car seat for up to 29% off *plus* an extra 20% off with over 44,000 five-star reviews that grows with your child from rear-facing harness (4–50lbs) to forward-facing harness (22–65 pounds).


    Promising review: "This is a great cars eat! I love it. I have both my three-year-old and one-year-old in it. One is rear-facing and the other forward-facing. They both love their seats and are always comfortable looking. Their heads never fall forward while sleeping either. We were recently in a 6x rollover accident at 70mph with our boys in this brand of car seat. Neither of them was injured at all! I will never own another brand of car seat." —Fulton Wife

    Price: $149.99 (originally $211.99, available in four colors)

    11. A long-range Babysense baby monitor for 20% off so you can see and hear your baby from anywhere in the home (up to a 960-foot range) day or night (thanks to night vision).

    The baby monitor and camera

    Promising review: "It's perfect for both day and night. I love the split screen option so I that I can watch both of my kids at the same time. It has really given me peace of mind having this monitor. My two favorite things about this monitor are that it doesn't need Wi-Fi to run—which makes it much safer against anyone that may hack it, and I can talk to my kids through it instead of constantly disturbing them to check on them." —Vee

    Price: $119.98 (originally $149.98).  

    12. A pool gate for 39% off that's sure to go ~swimmingly~ with safe summer fun, even when you have a water baby who would looove jumping in when grown ups aren't around.

    A child pushing against the mesh pool gate without being able to get through

    Promising review: "This is LITERALLY a lifesaver when our grandchild is here. There's no way our 18-month-old grandchild can get through this sturdy netting, which is such a relief. We roll it to the side when we're not using it, so it's perfect! If we did not have this fence, our grandchild would go right to the pool every time. Now she plays and we have no worries that she will go into the pool." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $119.34 (originally $195.95)

    13. A site word Bingo game for 42% off that'll help make those frustrating early reader lessons a lot more fun.

    Word board with chips, cards, and packaging

    Promising review: "Our first-grader was feeling really discouraged with her sight words and I've been trying to think of ways to encourage her and get her excited to learn things she doesn't already know. She loved this game! We played with the whole family and her 3-year-old even enjoyed playing (we show her the cards and have her find the word that matches on her bingo card). I think this is a great way to make learning/practicing sight words fun! I am very happy with this purchase and I can see how it would be great for teachers in the classroom as well!!" —Jennie

    Price: $6.99 (originally $11.99)

    14. A pair of light saber chopsticks for 58% off that'll be a surprisingly practical utensil set any lifelong Star Wars fan would Jedi for.

    This set includes two light saber chopsticks. The "force" is strong with these (i.e., batteries are included).

    Promising review: "These are the coolest chopsticks I have ever seen. The instructions for use and cleaning were clear and concise and the light that they give off is amazing!" —Jennifer P. Lane

    Price: $12.49 (originally $29.99)

    15. A four-pack of Gentle Touch diapers for 30% off, for cradling your baby's bottom in something super.

    Baby in only a diaper

    Each pack has 37 diapers, making a grand total of 148 diapers in all. 

    Promising review: "Wow I'm impressed! I've purchased the regular Mama Bear diapers in the past and recently decided to give the gentle touch version a chance. Reading the current reviews of the product it's often mentioned how thin these diapers are. I was surprised how well these diapers hold wetness because of how thin they are. The longest my daughter wore these diapers was about eight hours overnight, no leaks. What was most impressive to me was that out of every diaper my daughter has worn (Pampers, Huggies, Luvs, Honest, Target) this is the best fitting diaper on her! I've never put a diaper on her that fit so perfect. I will definitely be buying this brand again in the future." —Salem

    Price: $21.69 (originally $30.99; available in several sizes)

    16. A backyard zip line kit for 22% off can turn your backyard into a real outdoor adventure.

    Model sitting on the zip line

    Promising review: "We LOVE this zip line! We were looking for something to draw our screen magnet youngest child outside with increased frequency. This fits the bill!! Installation was definitely a two person job, just as we expected. It took us a part of a morning to put it up. Tightening it was a little tricky and required some trial and error on our part, but I'd call that operator error related to inexperience, not a flaw in the kit. We have installed a secondary brake just to add a back-up for safety. It's only been up for about five days but I bet we've made 500 trips down the line already. We have six children with an eighteen year age spread between them. All six have enjoyed multiple trips down the line along with their friends. The youngest can't wait to get outside when he wakes up in the morning. We wish we would have had this is the yard ten years ago. Making memories....NO SCREENS REQUIRED!" —Dayna Strand

    Price: $179.99 (originally $229.74)

    17. A pack of six disposable urinals for 20% off – these'll assist you while camping, on road trips, or with any other urinary emergencies that may arise away from the comfort of a bathroom stall.,

    Promising review: "These are a life saver when camping with a large group if you are afraid of the woods at night, like me! I'm female and have had absolutely no issues with leaking or overfilling. These things are awesome! Definitely a staple for me now on summer camping trips. I also have a few in the car for my kids for road emergencies." —Alex Bogherie

    Price: $14.39 (originally $17.99)

    18. A (waterproof!) Kindle Paperwhite for $50 off, so you can pack up a library full of books inside your purse. Who are you, Mary Poppins?!

    The lighter and thinner Kindle

    Promising review: "I bought a Kindle paperwhite when they first came out four years ago. Since then, I read an average of one book per month. Really enjoyed using the paperwite in different lighting conditions, Both at home and on vacations. This new paperwhite makes it much easier to change the brightness level. It is also much faster when it comes to choosing which book to read. One of the best features, is that it tells you when it's waking up and ready for you to swipe the screen to come on. The text is much sharper. The lighting is also more even. I would highly recommend this for anyone interested in an e-reader, even if you already have one. It's lightweight and the battery lasts seemingly forever." —Dan O'Sterling

    Price: $79.99+ (originally $129.99+; available in two sizes, with or without ads, and in four colors)

    19. A FridaBaby Baby Basics Kit for 39% off which includes a snot-sucker, a gas-passer, a nail trimmer, and a silicone cradle-cap brush. Babies are...kinda gross.


    Promising review: "If you are looking for a great baby shower gift look no further. This kit has been a lifesaver when it has come to my newborn.

    As far as the product "Windi" is concerned, I thought wow I will never use this. Now I think the fart straw is the handiest product on the market with my colicky gassy baby. The head scrubber gently exfoliates. The snot sucker is way nicer than a bulb syringe. I have used every product in the kit and my son is still only six weeks old." —SP

    Price: $24.49 (originally $39.99).

    20. A Roomba robot vacuum for 33% off so you can watch your house get cleaned without even having to get up from the couch. LOL, as if you have time to lounge on the couch.

    The black roomba vacuuming up a carpet, with text that it cleans carpets and hard floors

    Promising review: "As a fellow dog owner, my dog sheds all year round. When you have to manually have to vacuum every day it quickly becomes a chore that's repetitive and a nuisance. Having the Roomba 692 has given me so much of my time back just from cleaning up after my dog, but the most impressive thing is that it vacuums multiple times in a day and I can adjust the setting to do it often or less frequent if the dog is spending most of its time outside. It also works wonders in the kitchen as it picks up things like garlic peels, small pieces of food scraps, it really just makes life so much easier and the house stays cleaner. The suction I noticed is extremely powerful but it can be a little on the louder side, however you get used to it quite fast. Another great addition is having the app downloaded on my phone so I can manually have it clean out of it's regular schedule as well. Overall, I'm very happy with this robot vacuum and would definitely recommend it." —Jia Cheng Lian

    Price: $199.99 (originally $299.99)

    21. A travel cooler for 40% off, for keeping fresh snacks inside your car. It's pretty typical for toddlers to need food every three to four hours, so having snacks and drinks inside the car helps prevent crankiness between meals.

    Canvas cooler with handles, crossbody straps, and several pockets on top of a picnic blanket with food around it

    Promising review: "This is the perfect lunch bag to take on a picnic or road trip. It is big and roomy and can hold items for the whole family. I can pack all of my kids snack in one bag. The design is sleek and looks nice." —TAmazon

    Price: $23.99+ (originally $39.99; available in two sizes) 

    22. The Amazon 4K Fire TV stick for 50% off so you can stream eeeeeverything your heart desires basically as soon as you plug the thing in. Cut that cable cord, save money, and feel free to play Daniel Tiger on repeat.

    The plug-in stick and remote

    Promising review: "Like millions before us, we finally cut the cord. Discounts were available for this device as well as a Roku 4K stick and I chose to purchase one of each for my two smart TVs, risking confusion in operating the two devices. I'm happy with both, but the Fire Stick remote is more intelligently designed, with the voice button in a more conspicuous location and the volume controls also easier to find and operate. Each remote needs buttons that light up in the dark, like my previous Cox Contour remote. A nice feature with the Fires Stick was the HDMI extension adapter, since on my Samsung smart TV the stick would not fit without being left on an angle, which didn't seem to be an adequate connection. Happy to join the cord cutters, saving over $100/month despite spoiling my family with YouTubeTV, Sling TV, Netflix, and Hulu. But this is a fast evolving, new world and like smartphones, cable modems, wifi routers, let alone ISP service, I expect changes/advances in all the Sticks every two to three years. Highly recommend." —8clap

    Price: $24.99 (originally $49.99)

    23. A darling construction zone plate for 20% off that'll be so fun your kids may actually eat all of their dinner, even if they usually act like you've placed a truckload of broccoli on their plate.


    Promising review: "My toddler is really into construction vehicles and when I served his breakfast in here he was so excited and couldn't wait to eat by himself. Great quality too! I'm very happy with my purchase. My 30-month-old toddler likes to eat now!" —Ks

    Price: $19.99 (originally $24.99; available in four colors)

    24. A Revlon one-step hair dryer and volumizer hot air brush for 25% off *plus* an extra $10 to assist you in getting your kids off to school free of bedhead.,

    Be sure to click the coupon button and the extra $10 off will be reflected in your cart!

    Promising review: "I have very thick, wavy hair. I can never blow out my hair because it's too hard to hold the round brush and hair dryer in the right spots. THIS!! It is everything all in one and the oval shape makes it so easy to use. It gets really hot. It is a little loud on high, but I've found if my hair is already a little dry then I can just use it on low. I used a blow dry primer spray to accelerate the drying time and protect my hair. I'm in love! The flat iron always flattens my hair and makes it look dry. This straightens and retains the volume and gives it a soft, non-damaged look." —SAHM2011

    Price: $44.99 (originally $59.99; available in four colors)

    25. A Studio Disney Princess bundle complete with the game and iPad base for 38% off – this teaches your tiny artist how to draw their favorite Disney princesses *and* keep them entertained for hours on end.

    Price: $41.99 (originally $67.75)

    26. A pair of Sony noise-cancelling headphones for 52% off with 30 hours of playback time on a single charge, ~extra bass~, and easy touch sensor controls so you can enjoy your own tunes when you need a break from the Frozen 2 soundtrack your children listen to 24/7.

    The over-the-ear-headphones in blue

    Promising review: "The Sony WH-1000XM3 wireless noise canceling headphones are the most incredible headphones I have ever used! Not only are they supremely comfortable to wear, but the sound quality and active noise canceling are far superior to any other premium headsets that I have used. Super lightweight and excellent sound from these Sony over the ear headphones. All day battery life and comfort. Ears stayed cool during full day use while connected to my windows 10 desktop. The headphones ship with a great carrying case, a USB-C fast charging cable, an audio cable for wired connection and instructions/paperwork. The headphones fold up perfectly to fit in the case which is a good size for traveling. The came fully charged and ready to go, so all you need to do is (optional really, as they headphones will connect to your bluetooth device anyway) download the Sony Connect app and set up the earphones. So far, after using it for 10 days, i had no problem either with connecting them to my laptop or cell phone or sound quality. I like the adaptive mode, it adjusts the noise cancelling while you are walking or running." —J. Edward Baker

    Price: $118 (originally $248; also available in black)

    27. A Casper mattress for 20% off made to combine both softness and support in one, because parents deserve to sleep like a baby.

    bed with the mattress on it

    It's made with a level of perforated breathable foam that increases airflow and circulates more air so you don't get hot at night. And the durable foam base is made to prevent sinking and sagging. 

    Promising review: "We bought a Casper two years ago and have loved it. We decided to get another for the guest room because one or the other of us occasionally chases the other to that room (snoring, restless. Wait'll 'til YOU get old). I think the new mattress is ever so slightly firmer than the old one and my husband prefers it. This could simply be a result of two years of use. I like the old one better. Either is still the best we've ever slept on and way cheaper than those $2000+ ones we used to buy at a mattress store. My only complaint is these mattresses are heavy and they have no handles, but that is the nature of the beast." —chippers

    Price: $316+ (originally $395+; available in six sizes)

    28. A Stasher bag for up to 30% off, aka the cutest reusable silicone sandwich and snack bags you ever did see. Not only will these help you reduce waste, but these leakproof babies will cook, sous vide, or freeze, *and* are dishwasher-safe to boot.

    sandwich in clear stasher bag and sliced apples in snack-size green stasher bag

    "I have Stasher bags and they have so many uses! They are obviously great for storing and transporting food, but they can also be used to sous vide, marinate, and microwave. I have about five and they are *always* in use, storing cheese, leftovers, keeping packed sandwiches safe — you name it! They're also dishwasher-safe, which is obviously incredible news." —Rachel Dunkel, BuzzFeed

    Price: $6.99+ (originally $9.99+, available in six sizes and 13 colors)

    29. And a Rubbermaid airtight food storage container system for 43% off so your family can see what's available for snackin' on – keeping hanger at bay.

    clear food containers

    Promising review: "Easy to use, dishwasher-safe on top rack, and keeps food fresh. The clear container allows easy viewing of contents, and the vented, no leak lids make transport and reheating a breeze. They stack nicely and save fridge and pantry space. They haven't stained, and don't retain odors after washing. I put smoked salmon in one: it stayed fresh for a long time, fridge never smelled of fish, and the container washed the fish scent away easily. I'm sold on these!" —Misplaced Californian

    Price: $34.19 (originally $59.99; available in more combos)

    30. An Alexa-enabled Blink Mini camera for 43% off that's so versatile you might want them all over your home — the motion-detecting and night vision tech make them great options for baby monitors, checking in on pets during the day, and communicating with visitors at the front door. You can even see, hear, and speak through them, and sync multiple cameras together to see all over your home.

    Promising review: "SO...I rarely write reviews but was so amazed by this camera I wanted to let others know. I bought the camera after using the Ring indoor camera for twice the price and it made a constant clicking noise with the filter adjustment to light in the room that was a known issue Ring told me and not a defect. I've tried all the other brands out there WYZE, etc and disappointed with all. Then I tried the Blink Mini which I thought was a good price. The setup was a breeze, up and running in 30 seconds. The app is responsive and user friendly. My wifi is sloooow but it still loaded a 1080p HD quality view when I accessed it from my mobile app. My favorite feature is the night vision. All my previous cameras just showed a dark room or shadows but this camera shows a clear and crisp picture in pitch black darkness. Very pleased with this and you can't go wrong here. My two-year indoor camera journey has come to an end here." —Tech Guru

    Price: $19.99 (originally $34.99)

    31. And a 6-in1 Lillebaby ergonomic baby and child carrier for 35% off for parents who know that heading out with their child is more than a handful.

    A woman with her child strapped in the carrier

    Promising review: "Definitely worth the money! I got this as a baby shower gift and I’m so glad that I did! When my baby was smaller I would wear him in the front but now that he’s gotten bigger I put him on my back. I can still wear him in the front if I want to. My baby is comfy and is able to look around and it is very comfortable for me to wear and also my husband! I had to watch a couple of tutorials on how to wear this but once you get the hang of it your gold!" —Busy Family

    Price: $77.99 (originally $119.99).
