    50% off a 23andMe test for the person who thinks they know everything about themselves *and* the person who knows basically nothing about their family history.

    Promising review: "Ordered on the Black Friday sale for $99 with free one day shipping. Arrived in the mail Saturday morning. I spit in the tube, and put the tube in the prepaid package the same day. Saturday it was picked up by USPS and was delivered to their lab Monday. Tuesday they began DNA extraction. Wednesday they began DNA analysis and Friday they finished their quality review and began generating my reports. On Sunday I got my results. Expected time to ship your DNA to the lab is 2-4 weeks. Mine got there in 2 days. I expected to wait 6-8 weeks before getting my results, but got them 8 days after shipping the package. It was very exciting getting my ancestry and health results back, as I'm adopted and wasn't sure of my nationality or any health risks. I was connected with over 1000 DNA relatives, but only one was a close relative (2nd cousin). Overall I found this experience very enjoyable. 10/10." —K. Leclercq

    Price: $99 (originally $199)

    Up to 25% off a 7-in-1 Instant Pot that'll whip you up dinner without you ever needing to open your cluttered pots-and-pans drawer. It's also on sale rn!!

    The Instant Pot

    This do-it-all kitchen appliance is a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, sauté pan, yogurt maker and warmer.

    Promising review: "I use the pressure cook and slow cook options regularly! I even got rid of my stovetop pressure cooker, because I wasn't using it anymore. This one does the job perfectly well, with no noise, and no mess. The sauté feature is a huge bonus. A lot of slow cooker recipes require that you brown the meat first. It really saves the mess and hassle of browning it on the stove, and then transferring it over to the slow cooker. I simply use the sauté feature to brown whatever I need, then turn it off, switch to slow-cook mode, cover, and walk away. It's the best feeling to get home from work in the evening and have a home-cooked meal ready to go!" —Beatriz

    Price: $59.99+ (originally $79.95+; available in three sizes and three styles).

    Up to 40% off a Le Creuset Dutch oven because *slaps dutch oven* this bad boy can cook you practically anything you want. Bread? Done. Stews? Done. An entire bird? Done. Braised meats and veggies? Done! Seriously, please stop asking.

    The remote

    The remote is Alexa-compatible so you can use voice commands to find something new to watch, launch an app, search for a movie, or even order yourself a pizza. Your old remote could never!

    Promising review: "I love it! It’s my first Fire Stick and since I lost my remote for my LED TV, this replaces it. Best purchase in awhile! Fast response and the sound is great! Oh and Alexa responds so well on here! I enjoy being able to whisper to her at night to go to Hulu, Netflix, YouTube, Disney+, etc. so my hubby can keep sleeping!" —Melody

    Price: $27.99 (originally $39.99)

    25% off a Baby Yoda Bluetooth speaker with a built-in strap so the Force (and the beats) are always with you.

    Price: $14.97 (originally $19.99)

    53% off an Echo Dot that'll tell you how many cups are in a quart while your hands are covered in flour. You can also use it to play music, call your partner to remind them to pick up butter at the store, or turn your lights on and off with a simple voice command.

    Promising review: "This is my fourth Echo dot. We have one in every room. They make it easy to communicate with other family members who tend to forget their phones in another room. I use the echo to add items to my grocery list, listen to music, set timers while cooking, and for routine alarms and reminders. I honestly don’t know what I would do without my Echo Dots." —CKRawls

    Price: $18.99 (originally $39.99; available in four colors)

    25% off Apple AirPods (and 20% off the Pro version!) so you emerge from the tangled mess of old earbuds and take calls, listen to music, and easily switch between devices with these.

    The AirPods

    Promising review: "Excellent, pretty useful, easy to use, and reliable. At first I had some doubts about it being reliable to my Mac as some Bluetooth speakers sometimes cut off, but these work great and are really comfortable to my ears. Aesthetically, they look great to me. Worth every penny." —Ivan

    Price: $119 for AirPods (originally $159) and $199 (originally $249) for AirPods Pro

    33% off a Bissell robot vacuum because you'll be happy if you never have to lug your heavy, oversized vacuum from the closet.

    The vacuum on a carpet

    Promising review: "I had surgery and my doctor said no vacuuming. My springer spaniel sheds a lot. I ordered the Bissell pet robot vacuum and I was amazed that the robot Bissell was the answer to my prayers. I love it!" —MARY TOMFOHRDE

    Price: $199.99 (originally $299.99)

    A small white rectangular sanitizer with its lid open showing a phone resting inside

    Promising review: "It is very useful for us. Wife works in hospital so always needs to sanitize mobile phone, keys, and masks. Really handy and very easy use." —Nadeeka Kariyawasam

    Price: $39.99 (originally $49.99)

    Up to 51% off a Revlon hot air brush to help you go from wet, tangled, frizzy hair to a sleek and shiny blowout in minutes.

    The brush has special vents that allow air to flow so hair dries faster. Plus, it's quicker than using a dryer and then a flat iron or curling iron, which equals less heat damage.

    Promising review: "After reading review after review I decided to give this hair dryer a try. What can I say — best decision ever! As you can see from first picture, right after washing hair, no products or anything, my hair looks absolutely awful. After not even 12 minutes, dividing hair into sections, my hair looks like I just left the hair salon. And the best thing is no effort at all! I have never been the best person at styling hair, but this tool...this bad boy sure worked magic!!! I'm 100% satisfied with it. My hair looks healthier, shinier, and feels softer to the touch. I am never going to use a flat iron again!! Thank you Revlon!" —Amazon Customer

    Price: $29.39+ (originally $59.99; available in four colors)

    35% off Bluetooth and Alexa-enabled Bose QuietComfort Series II wireless headphones if you're tired of construction, noisy neighbors, and city sounds ruining your concentration at work.

    A model wearing a pair of gray over the ear wireless headphones

    Promising review: "Unbelievably happy with this product. I cannot live without out my Bose QC 35 II's (even considering a second one to keep at work). It is empowering to put these on and all the noise pollution just goes away. I bought them for home and hadn't planned on taking them to my large open floor office. I put them on and suddenly realized there was a very low and loud humm coming from the ceiling (air blowers I assume). Now gone. I sit there in my cubicle and feel sorry for everyone else because they don't have a pair of these. I tried other brands, but they were simply not properly engineered. Once you get the pairing "dialed in" it is seamless. I have a Mac and iPhone but bought the new model (with Google voice button). I use the button's alternate function of turning on/off noise cancellation — just for fun to remind me how great this product works. But remember.. this technology is not going to isolate voices — it is designed to remove motor noises (plane, furnace blower, road, engine, etc)." —Claveman

    Price: $199 (originally $299; available in three colors)

    47% off a bidet attachment that'll change the way you feel about toilet paper. Hear us out, TP can only get so good; ultimately you're still wiping your butt with a piece of paper (and creating more environmental waste). With a bidet, you can save on toilet paper and enjoy the feeling of a machine cleaning your bum — and that is one job I am happy to let the robots have.

    The bidet attached to a toilet

    Promising review: "Me and the wife tried it for the first time this morning and let me tell you, on a winter morning such as today it's a shocker because the water is very cold. But that being said, the item works well and cleans any soil from your posterior very well leaving you feeling pretty refreshed afterwards and maybe a little cold as well. LOL. I would recommend this to family and friends in the future and we are very happy with our purchase and are debating on purchasing another for our second bathroom!" —J

    Price: $31.50 (originally $59)

    28% off a Furbo, a treat-tossing pet camera so you can keep an eye on your pet even when you're not home. With its 160-degree wide-angle view, night vision, and real-time barking alerts you'll know exactly what your pup is up to.

    The Furbo

    Promising review: "I bought this item for my girlfriend who is deployed overseas in Bahrain. She loves her dog more than anything so I knew this would be a perfect gift for her. The first night I had the Furbo I was awaken several times in the middle of the night by high pitched squealing and giggling of glee from my gf not being able to contain herself. She was so excited to see him, talk to him and give him treats and OH BOY does she like giving him treats! By the time she gets back from her deployment I am sure he will be overweight and wont be able to run to her when she gets home. Thanks Furbo, your product is awesome and we all love it!" —Alex Batlle

    Price: $179.99 (originally $249)

    Or 20% off a mountable pet-monitoring camera to ensure your naughty fur babies stay out of trouble. It comes with 1080p HD video, 30-foot night vision, built-in live chat so you can consult a vet 24/7, motion alerts, and two-way communication.


    Price: $39.99 (originally $49.99)

    28% off a sleek, swim-proof Fitbit Versa 2 that'll keep up with you during workouts, keep track of your habits (like hours slept and steps walked), and keep calm with you as you drift off to sleep or listen to a guided meditation.


    Promising review: "Very happy with this smart watch/fitness tracker. If you are looking for a fitness tracker that has incredible battery life, a fantastic app, and sleep tracking there is no better product on the market. I think it is nice that it also includes some of the essential smart watch features like messages on your wrist and connectivity to control Spotify. The Alexa integration is also a nice bonus feature. However, if you are more interested in smart watch features and care less about fitness tracking then maybe the Apple Watch is a better choice for you. I actually have an Apple Watch and prefer to wear the Fitbit because I think Fitbit really nailed the features that are important to me - fitness, battery life, sleep tracking, messages on wrist. Everything else I can handle on my phone but it is nice that the features I care about are done so well on this watch. Also, it is really comfortable to wear. I never take it off. One other feature that I think is important is the always on heart rate monitor. The Apple Watch only measures your heart rate every 10 minutes when you are not in a workout. I like having the always on tracking during the day so I can quick glance at what my heart rate is doing. As far as I know, you can not do this with the Apple Watch; you would need to open up the heart rate app on the watch to get a read. Just another reason why I think this Fitbit is better for my lifestyle. It does the stuff I care about well rather than doing everything mediocre like the Apple Watch. Just my opinion..." —FullSpeedWD

    Price: $129.95 (originally $179.95; available in six band colors)

    20% off a a painless, mint-flavored teeth-whitening pen that'll be a heck of a lot quicker (and taste a lot better) than those whitening strips that have to sit on your teeth for 20 minutes. Just let it sit for 30 seconds and you're good to go; no more pushing back your bed time for a whitening strip. You can use each pen ~20 times and should expect your teeth to lighten four to eight shades.

    reviewer's before pic with yellow teeth and then after pic with much whiter teeth

    Promising review: "I’ve tried Crest strips without any noticeable improvement. My dentist offers free whitening, but that stuff is so harsh it blisters my gums on contact. The AsaVea whitening pen is the best whitening product I’ve ever used! I’ve had noticeable whitening in about a week, and it doesn’t irritate my gums. I only wish I took 'before' and 'after' pics!" —MDR

    Price: $15.96 for a two-pack (originally $19.99)

    33% off a Kindle with a front light so you can read late into the night. Or pair it with your headphones and to use Audible through Bluetooth and drift off to sleep hearing your favorite bedtime stories.

    Promising review: "Honestly I’ve always been so skeptical of Kindles because I’m someone who loves to hold a book in my hand and turn the pages. The only thing I always hate about books is trying to find a decent book light that worked well. So therefore once I saw that the basic Kindle has a built in backlight I had to give it a try. I’m really glad I did because I already love it! It’s extremely light weight and there are so many books to choose from in the prime store. Surprisingly the screen doesn’t hurt my eyes even after reading for hours. The battery is great too! I’ve been using it all weekend and have only charged it once and it still doesn’t need a charge. All in all for the price of this you really can’t go an avid book reader the built in back light makes it worth it." —Nicolle

    Price: $59.99 (originally $89.99)

    Up to 40% off a nail grinder if you want your wood floors and furniture to remain free of scratch marks. It'll trim your pup's claws to an acceptable length so they don't leave behind gouges in your beautiful oak flooring. Plus it's super quiet and smooth, which is ideal for dogs who get spooked by regular nail clippers.
