1. A box of Crest 3D whitening strips for 44% off to lighten your smile and remove up to 14 years of teeth stains sans the exorbitant dentist bill.,

Promising review: "Highly recommended!!!! I am stunned by the results of this product!! I really wanted to whiten my teeth but professional treatments are so expensive. I decided to go ahead and give this a try. I used exactly as directed every day for the full 20 days, and my husband kept telling me how white my teeth were getting. It's hard to tell when you look in the mirror everyday, but I knew there was improvement. Then, I looked at the before and after photos and I was amazed. Love this product!!!" —beaufam

Price: $27.96 (originally $49.99)

2. A Revlon hot air brush for 51% off 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)

3. A Dash air fryer for 33% off because it'll satisfy your love of crunchy, fried foods but do it without all the grease. You can make all your restaurant faves — like chicken wings, crispy breaded eggplant, charred veggies, and even donuts — with this magical appliance. It's even great for reheating foods that usually get soggy in the microwave, like pizza!

Price: $39.99 (originally $59.99; available in three colors)

4. A two-pack of Tile bluetooth trackers for 30% off for all those times when you were home alone and couldn't find your phone...and then realized that you couldn't call your phone to find it. This'll save the day when that inevitably happens again.

The white square tracker attached to a keychain

Price: $33.59 (originally $47.99)

5. A 15-pound weighted blanket for 20% off to help reduce your anxiety so you can feel well-rested sometime this decade.

Model sleeping under the gray quilted blanket

Using a weighted blanket may increase your serotonin levels because the weight mimics the sensation of being held or hugged. The release of serotonin and oxytocin (often nicknamed the "love hormone") can lower your stress levels and lessen anxiety, which may make it easier for you to drift off.

Price: $39.92 (originally $49.90)

6. A memory foam knee pillow for 34% off to help reduce back strain, align your spine, promote better circulation, and alleviate pressure on your knees, especially for side sleepers.

Model using the pillow in different positions

Price: $22.95 (originally $34.95)

7. A memory foam pillow for 29% off 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.

The pillow

Price: $24.99+ (originally $34.99+; available in three sizes)

8. A cozy yet breathable duvet for 20% off because you want to be warm but not too warm.

The quilted duvet

Price: $23.92+ (originally $29.90+; available in three sizes)

9. A pet-monitoring camera for 30% off 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: $34.99 (originally $49.99)

10. A grooming glove for 20% off that'll 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 colleague AnaMaria Glavan swears by this thing. In her own words:

"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. We got Rockie when he was 5 and he’d been riddled with skin issues and allergies, so I was pretty nervous to use anything that could potentially aggravate his conditions. However! Not only does this *not* bother his skin, but he…loves this. A lot. He starts snoring after exactly two run-throughs on his back. Also, his coat looks SO shiny after each use! TL;DR: this is one of those inexpensive add-ons that any pet owner should have on hand."

Price: $7.99 (originally $9.99)

11. A dip powder kit for 20% off, because you'll save yourself a lot of money in the long run by perfecting your at-home manicure.,

Promising review: "With COVID-19 shutting everything down I wanted to find something I could do from home to keep my dip nails looking good! This kit is amazing. You get six colors and all of the necessary polishes/activators. The top coat dries in under a minute, no kidding. My two recommendations for success with this product would be to 1) keep each layer very thin. This keeps it from being lumpy or uneven. 2) purchase some buffing and filing blocks like they have at the nail salon, these buffed the dip out perfectly smooth. Overall, highly recommend. Can’t wait to try more colors." —Mary Jenkins

Price: $39.99 (originally $49.99)

12. A pair of high-waist American Apparel leggings for up to 46% off that'll offer you maximum comfort and stretch. And don't worry — reviewers say they're not see through!


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

13. A 16-piece set of Rubbermaid Brilliance Food Containers for 19% off so meal prep and food storage are never, ever an issue. There's a lot of storage solutions out there, but these are stain-proof, leak-proof and an all-around excellent pick.

Yi Yang / BuzzFeed, Yi Yang

The set comes with two snack, two small, one medium, and one large container, as well as a sugar and flour container, all with lids. The containers are BPA-free, as well as dishwasher-, microwave-, and freezer-safe.

Promising review: "I really like these containers. I have used the previous red version of Rubbermaid containers and they lasted about five years so I know Rubbermaid's a good brand. These are crystal clear and viewable 360 degrees around. The seal is very tight and absolutely no spilling or leaking. Another big plus for me is the microwave vents that appear when the latches are opened. I haven't had them long enough to see if they scratch when eaten out of but they seem very durable. Great buy!" —Z

Price: $48.40 (originally $59.99)

14. An epilator for 30% off so you can enjoy smoother, hair-free legs and armpits for longer than you would if you shaved.


Promising review: "Everyone's bodies react to hair removal methods differently. My body reacted very well to this. I've never used an epilator before so I didn't really know what to expect. I saw some reviews mentioning that their underarm hair grew back heavily as ingrown, so I was worried. But I have yet to have that issue. It's been one week since I used this and my hair is finally to start growing back, but a lot more finer as compared to shaving (which I would have to shave a minimum of 2–3 times a week for my underarms). So far no ingrowns. I have been exfoliating everyday when I shower to help prevent that as well. There were a few hairs that I could get to go, but I'll take tweezing three strands of hair over dealing with my whole pit." —Abraham

Price: $48.94 (originally $69.95)

15. A bottle of Mario Badescu Drying Lotion for 30% off if you haven't tried this beloved blemish banisher yet. It's on sale so you basically have no reason to not try it!

Two bottles of the pink lotion

Promising review: "I have been using for years. This is magic. If you want to prevent blemishes to begin with, drink water and take care of your skin from the inside out. But we all binge on Domino's once in a while, or forget to wash our face because that bottle of wine snuck up on you like a bedtime ninja. In times such as these, use Mario Badescu Drying Lotion for one night instead of FaceTune for the next week." —Joseph

Price: $11.90 (originally $17)

16. Reusable silicone Stasher bags for up to 30% off, because reducing your plastic waste is always a good idea. Unlike regular plastic sandwich bags, these are dishwasher-safe so you can use them over and over again.

The silicone bags in various sizes holding food

Promising review: "This was a great deal that I couldn't pass up. I am actively trying to eliminate all plastics from my household and these are wonderful. I love Stasher bags and the quality is way better than any other silicone bags I have used. I have had some for years and they are still in just as great shape as when I got them. Love that you can freeze with them and they don't take up tons of space. I have never cooked with them but I would bet they hold up to their claims. They aren't cheap, but well worth the money! Highly recommend!" —TillyTally25

Price: $7.49+ (originally $9.99+, available in five sizes and 12 colors)

17. A memory foam seat cushion for up to 39% off that'll support your bum and relieve pressure on your tailbone. Reviewers say it also helps ease lower back pain.

The seat cushion

Price: $24.17 (originally $39.95; available in five colors)

18. Azul, a unique board game, for 46% off — it challenges you to "build" stained glass windows in order to "become the best stained glass artisan" of the group, or as laymen would say, win.


This game is suitable for two to four people ages 8 and up.

BuzzFeed writer Rachel Dunkel recommends this game! In her own words:

"I really like this game, and not just because when you win you get to brag about being "the best stained glass artisan" — a phrase that makes me laugh out loud every time I say it. I'd definitely call this a strategy game, as you compete by trying to make certain patterns with colorful tiles as they become available and can throw off your opponents' games by making certain moves. It had a little bit of a learning curve, but once you get the hang of it, it's really a blast."

Price: $21.74 (originally $39.99)

19. A twin XL ventilated memory foam topper for 35% off so you can be comfy without overheating.

The 2.5-inch mattress pad

Price: $42.11 (originally $64.99)

20. A Levi's denim jacket for 40% off to keep you warm in this annoying definitely-not-summer-but-not-exactly-winter weather.,

Promising review: "The material is thick and sturdy with a low amount of stretch. I can't feel the wind through it most of the time. The best thing about it is the amount and size of the pockets; it has two small breast pockets, two outer slant pockets, and two inside pockets to help you carry what you need without a purse. I can carry my phone, my wallet, papers, medicines and emergency toiletries in this jacket. It's great." —Person

Price: $47.70 (originally $79.50; available in sizes XS–4X and 13 colors)

21. And pair of Levi's high-rise skinny jeans for 44% off that'll help you complete your Canadian tuxedo.,

Promising review: "I love the high rise! There is no gap in the lower back, they don't slide down when I bend or sit, and the fabric has plenty of stretch without becoming baggy. They are very comfortable. This style is great for tucking (or half tucking) a shirt." —Marla

Price: $30.56+ (originally $69.50; available in sizes 24–34L and three inseam lengths)

22. The Porter Seal Tight Glass Containers for 20% off — one of the best *and* cutest food storage products around. Their screw-top lid ensures no leakage, making these perfect for throwing snacks or a bowl lunch into your bag.

The jars holding snacks

The jars are BPA-free, as well as microwave- and dishwasher-safe.

BuzzFeed writer Rachel Dunkel swears by these! In her own words:

"Before working from home became the norm, I would use these handy jars to bring my lunch almost every day. They're perfect for things like fruit, salad, or something saucy — stuff you really don't want to get squished *and* want to ensure doesn't leak into your bag. *But* I have found that I use them just as much at home full-time! They are of course great for leftovers, but also for prepped ingredients for the week. Shedded cheese, prepped chicken, and chopped veggies usually live in these, ready to be utilized for a quick lunch or snack. They clean *super* well — I even have the cream color and it recovered from storing beets! 10/10 from me."

Price: $20+ (originally $25+, available in two sizes and five colors)

23. A bottle of cult-favorite Bioderma micellar water for 34% off to gently remove makeup and refresh even the most sensitive skin.

Diagram showing that it's safe for sensitive skin

Promising review: "This product is amazing and great for sensitive skin. I would greatly recommend it to anyone. I have rosacea and trying to keep my face clean after a long day can be a little stressful and frustrating. This product doesn't dry skin, removes makeup easily and is for daily use. My go-to product anytime now!! I give it a 10!" —Mayra Uribe

Price: $9.90 (originally $14.90)

24. A five-pack of Calvin Klein bikini underwear for up to 54% off so you can [insert your favorite activity] in your Calvins.

The white, gray, and black underwear, which has the Calvin Klein logo printed on the waistband

Promising review: "These are so comfortable! I've been on the search for cotton underwear that didn't look like granny panties, but also didn't have elastic that dug into the skin and make that extra crease in my cheeks (harder to find than you think). The elastic is just right for me and the panties don't make me feel lame and outdated." —S. Kim

Price: $14.99+ (originally $49; available in sizes S–XL and eight color combinations)

25. A cozy turtleneck dress for 30% off if you looking put together while *feeling* like you're wearing PJs.,

27. A Calvin Klein bralette for up to 36% off to wear around the house when you can't be bothered to wear a real bra.

Plus-size model wearing the bra in light pink

Promising review: "The second I tried this on it was love, love, love! I’m a thick full-figured woman who has been searching for a comfortable bralette. I’m very happy with this!! This is super soft and comfortable. Not much support but I wasn’t expecting that for these babies without underwire. Will make a great layer for those days when I’m lounging." —Amazon Customer

Price: $16.66 (originally $28; available in sizes XS–3X and 39 colors)

28. A doggie life jacket for up to 23% off a 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: $26.99 (originally $34.99, available in sizes XS–XL and three floatation levels)

29. A purring cat toy for 20% off if your kitty suffers from anxiety. This purple guy has a built-in purring mechanism so your feline can enjoy the sensation of curling up to another purring "cat." It also plays calming, comforting sounds.

The furry purple cat-shaped toy

Promising review: "Works like a charm! I recently found myself a cat mama of an abandoned week-old kitten. I bought this knowing she needed just something to cuddle up to in her bed. Turns out it basically hypnotizes her to sleep. She crawls to it, kneads it and eventually her meows turn to silence. I wish the purring lasted longer but for $10 it is a lifesaver. She's pooped on it a couple times so I've had to throw it in the washer and dryer minus the battery pack. It's held up great." —S Leytem

Price: $11.99 (originally $14.99)

30. A pair of blue light–blocking glasses for up to 15% off (plus an additional 30% off at checkout!) that'll help reduce eye strain after hours of staring at your computer, phone, and TV screens. These are for all those people with 20/20 vision who've always wanted a reason to wear glasses (and they're fine to wear with contacts, too)!,

Don't forget to clip the coupon before checking out!

Promising review: "Love these!! My roommate had some blue light glasses that I had tried and as much as they worked, they got smudged very easily and almost had a sort of film over them. These ones do not easily smudge and when they do I find it comes off pretty easily. I also have a very small head/face and these fit perfectly and don’t look too big on me! I’ve noticed my headaches have lessened a lot since I started wearing them during screen time, so happy with the purchase!" —Jenn Wagstaffe

Price: $11.89+ (originally $19.99; available in seven colors and as a multi-pack)

31. A Haus Laboratories makeup kit for 40% off that includes a bag, liquid eyeshadow, lip pencil, and lip gloss you might just go ~Gaga~ over. Get it....? The by Lady Gaga. OK, moving on.

the makeup set with pink gloss and lip liner with black liquid eyeshadow

Promising review: "Loved all three. I ordered assuming I’d return it. I figured I’d try it out. Was fantastic. The lip liner is soft and easy to apply. It’s perfect to wear alone or with the gloss over it. I don’t generally use liquid eyeshadow. This was fantastic. Very blendable and easy to apply. Beautiful shimmer and sparkle. So great! The lipgloss lasts and is beautiful. I’m ultra picky and predominantly use MAC or urban decay only. I hate most celebrity lines. I disliked the kat von D makeup line after trying it multiple times. This Lady Gaga makeup is great looking and worth the price!" —bllondkittty

Price: $29.40 (originally $49; available in 13 color sets)

32. Some Anker wireless earbuds for 20% off for upgrading your WFH calls. They have great background noise suppression and last up to seven hours on a single charge.

The black earbuds and their case

Just make sure you clip the coupon before checking out!

Promising review: "As a Google Pixel owner I have been looking for an AirPods competitor that would allow me to have true wireless headphones that can charge over USB-C, have a rock solid connection, good audio quality, and good call quality. I have tried several pairs in the $40-$60 price range and as usual Anker comes to the rescue! These have great audio for both music and calls, they are setup so either can be used for phone calls in mono mode, they charge over USB-C, and although lacking touch controls may seem like a bad thing, its actually a great thing since you will never have accidental triggers of the controls. If you are looking for a solid inexpensive choice for your Pixel or Android phone, look no further!" —Jose Castaneda

Price: $39.99 (originally $49.99)

33. An Echo Show 5 for 50% off if you've always wanted a virtual assistant. It can show you recipes, update your calendar, and play movies and TV.

The Echo Show 5

Promising review: "For my first Alexa-type device, I have been quite happy with the Echo Show 5. It has customizable clock faces, and always shows me the time, day, date, and weather. I have set up many routines, added many skills, and features that work exactly as I expected. I have since bought another one. I have tested the 'drop-in' and calling feature and it had great audio/video quality. I can play music or listen to my books on a single show, or all the shows in the house simultaneously. The display during daytime or nighttime mode can be easily seen." —Dano

Price: $44.99 (originally $89.99)

34. A stainless steel electric kettle for 20% off if you're tired of waiting for your stovetop kettle to boil water. This will get the job done in a fraction of the time and will look so sleek on your counter.

silver 1 liter kettle

Price: $17.59 (originally $21.99)

35. A bidet attachment for 41% off 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: $34.99 (originally $59)

36. 11% off The Comfy a blanket sweatshirt (yes, the one from Shark Tank) that'll keep you warm and cozy as you reread Harry Potter for the millionth time.

Reviewer wearing the blue version
