    1. Stila's Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner for 30% off — the iconic marker eyeliner that glides right on, dries quickly, and won't smudge.

    instagram.com

    Read our review of this best-selling eyeliner.

    Promising review: "Stila is the absolute best liquid eyeliner I have ever tried. It doesn't fade or crack and stays on through sleeping or tears. Very, very smudge-proof and it does not flake AT ALL. It dries quickly and even though it is waterproof (as long as you don't touch it excessively) it stays. It's also easy to clean off at the end of the day. No hard scrubbing to get it off, makeup wipes will take it off easily. It's amazing for creating perfect wings or drawing artfully for Halloween. It's perfect for every day from subtle looks, to more creative and wild. I can use this eyeliner for months at a time (at least doing wings every day or so) without having to repurchase because it has dried out or was empty. Just shake before using each time, and it should last for several months, (2-5) depending on the usage daily and if it is stored/used properly." —Chick

    Now: $15.40 (originally $22, available in nine colors)

    2. A Mario Badescu facial spray duo featuring ingredients like rose water, cucumber, green tea, and aloe for 25% off. You'll definitely love spritzing these over your face for a quick skin refresh every morning.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am not exaggerating when I say this is my absolute, hands down, favorite skin care product of all time! This is perfect for everyone. I love it because I have oily skin and do not need as much moisture as lotion often provides. This is an amazing alternative. Perfect for fresh face and over makeup. Is Mario Badescu married cause hit me up booooooiii!!" —grouchosays

    Now: $10.50+ for two (originally $14, available in 4 or 8 oz)

    3. A waterproof cargo liner for 41% off so you can give your doggo a ride while keeping the backseat and trunk clean. It'll catch any hairs, dander, dirt, and liquids.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This cargo liner is very durable and works perfect in my Dodge mini-van. It gives my dogs plenty of space to move around or lay down and is very easy to detach and rollup if I want to put the third row seat back up and then reattach quickly when the third row can be stowed again. It keeps the dogs and their hair and any dirt out of the rest of the van and off of the floor in the back as well. It is easy to wipe clean or vacuum as well. I would purchase this again." —Mjax

    Now: $40.99 (originally $69.99; available in three colors)

    4. A Tile Pro (aka a small Bluetooth-powered square with a replaceable battery) for 43% off that'll help you find your keys in no time.

    Amazon

    If you misplace your item, just open the Tile app and hit "Find" and the Tile will play a loud tune until you find it! It works both ways — you can also use the Tile to find your phone. It has a 300 feet range.

    Promising review: "I shove a Pro in my wallet and it seems to work just fine without making it too thick. My wallet somehow fell behind an unusual piece of furniture where it would have taken days to find otherwise." —Eddie

    Now: $19.99 (originally $34.99)

    5. A luxurious Elemis cleanser (formulated with enzymes, white truffle, and Babassu oil) for 30% off to gently exfoliate away dead skin while providing moisture. Reviewers say it helps to smoothen and brighten their complexion.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I thought it was a lot to spend on facial wash, but I liked the idea of this cleanser being enzyme-based...it should help the dead skin layer slowly, gently be removed naturally. The texture is silky and goes a long way, so the price isn't too bad if this product lasts...and trust me, so far that looks like the case. The dispenser pumps out a tiny drop, so little that initially I used two pumps thinking that it would not be enough, which ended up being too much. Only one pump and it's enough to clean your face, neck, and décolleté thoroughly (without thinking it's running thin).

    After using it for two weeks without any other changes to my facial care routine, my face looks smoother and brighter than it has been before. I think I've found my new go-to cleanser. I'm looking into ordering some more Elemis products because I have been so pleased with this one!" —gretchenette

    Now: $34.30 (originally $49)

    6. A lightly lined Calvin Klein bralette with adjustable straps for 30% off that'll look practically invisible under a T-shirt and feel like wearing nothing at all.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Most comfortable bralette in the universe. Haven’t had any issues with the removable cups wearing down or becoming misshapen. The fabric is unbelievably soft. The fit is perfect and I love the thicker adjustable straps. It doesn’t change my silhouette under even the thinnest shirts. J’adore!" —Anna

    Now: $26.60 (originally $38; available in sizes XS–XL and five colors)

    7. A six-quart Instant Pot pressure cooker for 50% off capable of turning meal prep into something that is not difficult. This handy thing can make everything from golden lentil soup and mac and cheese to chocolate lava cake and french toast. (Look at you! Betty Crocker over here!)

    Amazon

    This Instant Pot is basically seven kitchen tools in one! It can be used as a pressure cooker, rice cooker, steamer, yogurt maker, cake maker, and warmer! It can also sauté because, #fancy.

    Promising review: "This is quite possibly the coolest, most versatile kitchen gadget I’ve ever owned. I love it so much that I’ve purchased two more for friends and relatives. What can it do? I think the real question is 'What can’t it do?' I truly believe you could replace every cooking appliance (including your oven and stovetop) and do EVERYTHING in the Instant Pot. I purchased two sizes for my own use: the three-quart (which is my almost-every-day workhorse for two-person dishes) and the eight-quart (which I bring out to handle my dinner party dishes). Everything I’ve tried has been fabulous. In the realm of kitchen appliances, there is no better investment than the Instant Pot." —Stereoman

    Now: $49.99 (for the six-quart pot, originally $99.95)

    Check out a BuzzFeeder's review of the Instant Pot!

    8. A 3rd Generation Echo Dot for 56% off. This handy little device that's capable of answering all those hard-hitting questions. Things like, "Alexa, what should I have for dinner?" — like I said, hard-hitting.

    Amazon

    Buy the Echo Dot and get six free months of Amazon Music Unlimited. See all Echo products that come with this deal.

    Promising review: "I had no idea I'd love Alexa so much — I wake up in the morning and she does the routine I've set up. She's so comforting and useful, and fun overall. My husband and I played Skills trivia games for hours last night. If we had kids it would be even more useful (kid workouts, stories, games) — we even had a good night story read to us by Alexa and it was awesome. I'm really loving it. The Echo Dot itself is pretty great — the sound quality is pretty good. I'm really surprised by how much I like the Alexa app (and the Echo Dot), because I'm a little resistant to technology, but it's pretty easy to figure out and feels like a new little buddy in the home. I feel like Judy Jetson!" —Leah

    Now: $22 (originally $49.99)

    P.S. The Echo Dot Kids Edition is also on sale for $44.99!

    9. A cotton weighted blanket for 40% off that might help anxious sleepers doze off a little faster.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Worth every penny! Wish I hadn’t wasted so much time thinking about getting one! Two nights in a row that I didn’t wake up in the middle of the night!" —Rebecca M.

    Now: $47.92 (originally $79.90; available in three colors)

    10. A pair of build-your-own leggings for 16% off — we've actually tested these bad boys out and can vouch they're worth every cent.

    Amazon

    Check out our full review on these Core 10 leggings.

    Promising review: "These are perfect in every way. The fabric is thick and supportive, with no skin showing through even when bent over, or at bent knees. I love the high waist, it gives a smooth line without cutting into the skin. They wash and dry well, ending up soft. I have a pair of Lululemon, and the quality is every bit as good. I work as a gymnastics coach and wear a pair of these almost every day. These pants are well designed and well fabricated, at a very fair price. I literally don’t have even one less than positive thing to say." —trish

    Now: $42.81 (originally $51.18; available in sizes S–3X and three waist styles).

    11. A facial steamer with temperature control for 20% off so you can skip the spa and pamper yourself right at home.

    Amazon

    Each steamer comes with a five-piece surgical grade stainless steel blackhead and blemish extractor kit.

    Promising review: "Love it! I’ve never seen my skin so smooth and after the use it helps make my moisturizer soak in much better." —lorraine

    Now: $29.70 (originally $36.95)

    12. A laundry pack with Tide Pods and Downy Unstoppables in-wash scent booster for 30% off to keep all of your laundry fresh and clean for a staggering 81 washes.

    Amazon

    Now: $22.36 (originally $31.94, available in two scents)

    13. An Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K for 50% off to make your TV bingeing even more smarter and convenient — just tell Alexa what you want to watch, and she'll put it right up for ya'! Plus, if you have Amazon Prime (which, duh, you should), you get unlimited access to thousands of movies and TV shows — on top of Netflix, Hulu, Starz, etc.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This Fire Stick is truly a blessing. I wanted something where I can easily watch TV and stream some things for free. There are a lot of apps that you can download on this Fire Stick that are free, along with the things you need subscriptions for. I was especially impressed with how easy it was to set up. All I had to do was insert the Fire Stick on the side of my TV, put the included batteries in the remote, and BOOM! You're good to go. I also feel like Alexa is my new best friend now. She answers all of my questions on time!" —Stephanie Lingo

    Check out a BuzzFeeder's full writeup/review of the Fire TV Stick for her take!

    Now: $24.99 (originally $49.99)

    14. A 72-pack of colored pencils for 41% off because it's time to tackle that stack of coloring books you've been collecting. Now you'll have every color you could possibly need!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have bought SEVERAL different brands of colored pencils from Amazon. I'm into adult coloring books so getting good, vibrant pencils is very important. The problem 90% of the time is that the pencil will not resharpen. The lead either breaks or falls out. I found a brand that passes all my checks but they are spendy. Then I found these. I'm a believer. They are vibrant and resharpen just fine. The price is perfect too. If you're into adult coloring and looking for quality pencils, buy these. You will not be disappointed." —Joe and Rene

    Now: $17.77 (originally $29.99)

    15. A Vera Bradley four-piece cosmetic set for up to 32% off because nothing can kill the vacation vibes faster than realizing your shampoo spilled all over your clothes or you left your go-to hair oil behind.

    Amazon

    Now: $46.48 (originally $70; available in several patterns)

    16. A flaming hot inflatable dragon pool float for 20% off — [insert a punny Game of Thrones reference here].

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love it! I bought it for a bachelorette party at the lake. Everyone is getting unicorns, swans, and stuff like that — I thought 'okay, what’s cooler and a more badass floaty?' and boom! DRAGON! Very well made and easy to blow up with a hair dryer. My best friend also got one so they could duel and we were a huge hit at the party. Highly recommend!" —Nicole Denney

    Now: $16.99 (originally $19.99)

    17. A Levi's denim jacket for 45% off that'll be in style from now until eternity. This = the perfect layering piece.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I’ve been looking forever for a high-quality denim jacket with just the right amount of authentic fade but at an affordable price. I should have known to check out Levi’s first! This jacket is soft yet structured. The denim has a little personality and fade but still goes with everything, and the fit is right on point. Seriously it doesn’t get much better than this!" —FitGirlInFlight

    Now: $38.49 (originally $69.99; available in sizes XS–XL and five washes)

    18. A TubShroom for 35% off that catches all those pesky hairs that would have eventually clogged your shower and created bathroom chaos.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is absolutely worth every penny. I have thick long dark hair, and after two months of moving into my own apartment, my shower drain was completely clogged. After being disgusted at the amount of hair I cleaned out with a snake (which is NOT fun), I decided to prevent it from happening again. I read about this product on BuzzFeed, and I have no regrets. It is so satisfying to clean out, and it does not lie when it says it catches every single hair. I have had it for close to four months without once instance of my shower drain backing up. This product is absolutely worth it." —Jess

    Now: $12.99 (originally $19.95)

    Read one BuzzFeeder's full review of the TubShroom.

    19. A tortilla blanket for 30% off so you can wrap yourself up like a happy lil' burrito.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I never write reviews but thought I should after buying this funny tortilla blanket! Very Surprised. It's a lightweight blanket that's still very fluffy and super cozy. I think it's perfect. Washed it and still super soft. No pilling but I washed and dried it alone. It's holding up well, both in feel and in shape. The trim is sewed on well, so no problem there either. This is the BEST purchase I have ever made. I’m recommending this to everyone I know!" —Amazon Customer

    Now: $15.96+ (originally $22.80+; available in 10 styles)

    20. A Bissell Steam Shot hard-surface cleaner for 20% off that'll get your bathroom walls and kitchen appliances sparkling in no time.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this because another reviewer stated it was great for cleaning up after kids and it is!!! I have successfully de-gunked all my kitchen cabinets! You know, all the gross stuff left behind from cooking and toddler hands. Usually, I have to really scrub to get that stuff off. Not anymore!!! Now, I just use a pass or two of the steam and wipe right off. No scrubbing, no chemicals!

    I also did the bathroom cabinets and it was just as easy! Deep cleaning baseboards is a dream. It blasts away all the dust that gets stuck in between the baseboard and the wall. Fantastic around the base of the toilet. We have paneled doors that collect dust, this made it easy to wipe off. Usually, I have to scrub with a Magic Eraser to get all the gunk and fingerprints off the doors, but this is even easier. Everything looks freshly painted!

    I can't speak of how long this lasts yet, but for $35, if it lasts for a year and how much I will be using it, I will def get my money's worth!" —tizpear

    Now: $39.99 (originally $49.99)

    21. A wire-free Glamorise bra for 44% off outfitted with lace, sheer panels, wide and padded straps to keep your girls supported, lifted, and happy all freakin' day long — because that's the kind of treatment they deserve.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have tried many, many bras over the years. I tried this one on a fluke and just hoped I would not have to send it back. I can no longer stand underwire...wearing my bra for 12 to 13 hours a shift at work it just kills me after a while. I have since changed to only bras without underwire. I am large-busted and take a 42DD, so it's not always easy to find a bra that supports too. Yes, this bra does have much more fabric than some bras. But it really supports me and is very comfortable. I feel like I am much more lifted in this bra, which is a first for me without underwire. I liked the first bra so much that I went back and purchased two more. I don't find it any stiffer than other bras I have worn. I guess it depends on what you like and is used to. I do NOT want to feel like my bra is digging into me after 10 plus hours. This bra did not do that. I ordered my normal size and it fits great." —DeeRN

    Now: $24.35+ (originally $46.99; available in sizes 36C–48H)

    22. A variety of TP-Link smart home products for up to 55% off, including smart plugs that can essentially turn any appliance into a smart appliance. They're compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant, and Microsoft Cortana.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love these! I have six of them in my home — with the app, I am able to turn on/off lamps, humidifiers, fans, whatever I have plugged into them. I can set them on a schedule (which is fantastic) or open the app anytime in or away from my home and turn things on or off. I can see when my kids still have their lamps on in their rooms and are supposed to be asleep, etc. I hooked mine up to Alexa and I can just ask her to turn on or off certain lamps. I haven't been able to truly wire my home to be a smart home, but I bought a bunch of these and now it is." —TJ

    Get a three-pack of the smart plugs now for $39.99 (originally $54.99) and check out their entire selection here.

    23. A vintage-inspired task lamp for 47% off that'll help in your endeavors to create a perfect little reading corner.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This lamp was perfect for what I needed. It looks nice, feels very sturdy, and doesn't take up much room on the desk. I needed something simple for my mother who has dementia. She does not understand dimmers or touch controls. Just a simple knob for on and off works best." —Becky

    Now: $47.48 (originally $89.99)

    24. A Sengled Smart LED starter kit (with four light bulbs and a hub) for 33% off so you can control all the lights via voice command or an app.

    Amazon

    This kit is compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant.

    Promising review: "Read the instructions and follow the prompts and it will all be smooth sailing. I've since added on 10 other smart bulbs and smart plugs from another brand and it has all blended seamlessly. Everyone in the house loves the light alarm feature and there's something to be said for programming in a 'Migraine Mode' with Alexa to dim the brightness on all the lights in the house. Seriously, if you don't mind taking a few minutes to do the proper setup, this is going to change the way you live your life." —The L Household

    Now: $39.99 (originally $59.99)

    25. A MyBaby Soundspa portable white noise machine for 23% off so you can still have nap time, even if you didn't make it home in time.

    Amazon

    The Soundspa has four relaxing sounds to choose from, including heartbeat, white noise, lullaby, and ocean. Plus, the volume is adjustable, and it has an auto-off timer for 15, 30, 45, or 60 minutes.

    Now: $9.99 (originally $12.99)

    26. A Dirt Devil Scorpion handheld vacuum for 35% off that is absolutely perfect for cleaning up dirt, dust, and pet hair. Added bonus? It's super tiny and therefore takes up practically NO space in your closet. People with very small living quarters, rejoice.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I normally don't take the time to write Amazon reviews, but I was blown away by how powerful this little vacuum is. It picks everything up no matter what size and very quickly! Makes vacuuming so easy for me in my dorm room." —Amazon Customer

    Now: $25.80 (originally $39.99)

    27. A sound machine for 30% off because it is just too darn hard to fall asleep when it's too quiet, am I right? This nifty gadget fits compactly on your nightstand, has amazing volume options, and will bring your much-needed beauty sleep to a whole new level.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This sound machine has literally changed my life. Our neighbor likes to spend his mornings shoveling gravel on a cement surface with a metal shovel about five from my window (like six AM early) and to be honest, I was starting to have some pretty dangerous thoughts about stealing his shovel, breaking his arms, burning his house down.... One goes down some pretty dark paths when they suffer from insomnia already and then get woken up with a shovel scrapping down a sidewalk. Okay, so the machine somehow COMPLETELY covers the noise from the shovel, the toilet flushing next to my room, dogs barking, etc. It is incredible." —MorAvFire

    Now: $34.96 (originally $49.95, available in five colors).

    28. A blinds cleaner for 48% off that will have your window treatments cleaner than they're ever been with just one simple swipe.

    Amazon

    Now: $6.79 (originally $12.99)

    29. A pair of queen-sized gel-filled pillows for 56% off that'll provide ridiculously soft yet firm comfort to knock you until the next day — no more constant fidgeting and waking up throughout the night to readjust your pillow, and dare I say, no more neck pain??

    Amazon

    They're allergen- and chemical-free, and machine-washable!

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these pillows. They actually feel like you are laying on a cloud. I have spent hundreds on brand-name memory foam pillows that failed to relieve my neck pain, but these pillows made that pain go away immediately. I was so impressed with the feel of them that I bought two more just to have for trips. Of course, like a bed, pillow material and feeling vary between the people that use them, but I found these pillows to be incredibly comfortable, durable, and they still maintain the great, fluffy feeling even after a year of use." —Taylor Hertz

    Now: $34.99 (originally $79.99; also available in king size)

    30. A slim, space-saving laundry cart for 37% off with three tiers capable of holding everything you need for wash day without taking up more space than needed — because your machines already claim enough!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This little cart is very sturdy for something made from plastic. It holds full jugs of bleach and detergent. It sits between the washer and dryer, and the wheels roll easily to access the bottom and middle shelf. I really had to twist on the driver to install the screws, and I believe this is the reason some didn't think it was sturdy enough. You really need to tighten the fasteners well, and then it is solid." —Neal Cutler

    Now: $28.98 (originally $45.99)

    31. A Dash clear-view toaster for 20% off so you can check up on your toast without interrupting its tanning process.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I am a toaster fanatic and am always looking for a better one — and this might just be the one. I love the window so you can keep an eye on your progress. The bagel function works well and we use it for toasting hamburger buns and it works great!" —Dianna

    Now: $39.99 (originally $49.99, available in four colors).

    32. An Echo Input for 57% off so you can continue to ask Alexa about the weather without having to trash your old sound system.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have an old Bose Soundock II, which was made to both play and charge an iPod (long before the advent of Bluetooth). It has remarkable sound, but who wants to listen to the same music over and over? I just hooked up my Echo and Bose speaker using the Echo Input without too much trouble and I'm thrilled to have the Prime Music library, combined with premium sound, available. Thanks for another great product, Amazon!" —Susan Mannion

    Now: $14.99 (originally $34.99, available in black and white)

    33. A set of three crystal glasses for 40% off that'll turn wine night into a much fancier affair. These babies are made of titanium crystal, which means you can run 'em through the dishwasher about one million times and they'll still look brand-spankin' new.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Hands down the best set of glasses I have ever bought! Products showed up and the packaging was just as amazing as the glasses themselves. Was so happy with the Red Wine set, the wife and I ordered the White Wine set and the Champagne glass set as a gift for the mother-in-law. I recommend these glasses to anybody who is searching for a great product to show off at your next grownup party." —Amazon Customer

    Now: $41.40 (originally $69)

    34. An instant ice cream maker for 20% off that'll quickly become your new favorite kitchen gadget.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this thing!!! It's perfect for anyone who doesn't like keeping ice cream around and only wants an occasional treat. You can follow the simple instructions that come with it for making your own mixture (I cut the recipe in half or 1/4 if I'm just making it for me and don't want to keep it in the fridge for too long) or develop your own to suit your own dietary needs. It's fun to get creative and develop your own favorites. Right now it's vanilla with shaved chocolate and crushed peppermints. BIG YUM!!!" —Dee

    Now: $39.90 (originally $49.96, available in lagoon or sorbet)

    35. A 8-pack of sparkling gel pens for 37% off that'll inspire you to finally get that bullet journal started.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These pens are just WOWSERS!!!! I am absolutely blown away by the sparkle in these, even without the added shifting colors on black paper. Some of the most gorgeous colors to color with I’ve ever seen." —Lilyanne’s GiDi

    Now: $10.07 (originally $15.99)
