    1. 43% off a 46-liter Osprey travel backpack so you can carry everything you could possibly need comfortably and securely. If you've never had the pleasure of owning an Osprey backpack — aka one of the most well-designed travel products around — now's your chance!

    Rachel Dunkel / BuzzFeed

    Osprey is simply the best backpack company around. My partner has this pack and has been using it as his main suitcase for years — it's that good. The main compartment is extremely spacious, which would be a double-edged sword if not for the outer tightening straps which keep the weight contained and close to your back, making for a much more comfortable carry. The straps are also great for holding random objects like jackets when not in use so you can stay hands-free at all times. There are extra pockets galore and the zippers are super reliable. I've yet to find a negative thing to say about an Osprey product!

    Price: $79.99 (originally $139.95, available in five colors)

    2. Up to 33% off a set of wedgie-proof underwear you can lounge, move around, and walk comfortably in without subjecting your cheeks to The Big Bunch., Amazon

    "I am a very wedgie-prone individual: I run long-distance, I sit like an antsy toddler when I work from home, and I am, in general, a human magnet for embarrassing situations. Enter this five-pack of full-coverage underwear you can get on Amazon. They are not messing around when they use the words 'full coverage.' The bottom seams are barely noticeable when you put them on, but still latch to your booty and anchor there through the whole day. The waistband is also so comfortable that I could write a country song about them. They're also HECKAAAA stretchy without ever getting loosey-goosey in your pants. I also deeply appreciate that the seams are flat enough that they are not very visible when you're wearing leggings, which is, incidentally, something I am doing a lot of lately. I've washed this set of underpants quite a few times now since I bought them a few months ago (and put them through the wringer with some VERY long, sweaty runs), and they've held up spectacularly." —Emma Lord

    Price: $23.99+ for a set of five (originally $35.99, available in sizes S–5XL and seven color combinations)

    3. 50% off an electric candle lighter to make lighting your favorite scented candle an ever greater daily joy.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    "I'm obsessed with candles, so it was a no-brainer for my husband to gift me this surprisingly super fun gadget for Christmas. It's really simple to use and charge, and it really works! If you're someone who gets a thrill from RAW POWER this is sort of the product for you. No, it's not a super intense gadget, relax pyromaniacs, but it does buzz and produce a burst of electricity that I personally find exciting. AND I'll never have to buy another lighter again! Stop burning your fingers on matches and pick up one of these bad boys." —Heather Braga

    Price: $12.99 (originally $25.99)

    4. 31% off a HoMedics air purifier for removing allergens, pet dander, smoke, dust, mold, pollen, and all those things around your home that your nose might find offensive.

    Jennifer Tonti / BuzzFeed

    "I have this (pictured above) and it's SUPER great to have in my small NYC apartment. It does such a great job of minimizing the dust that used to collect and I totally wake up more refreshed and my face isn't as puffy or irritated from bad air quality anymore." —Jennifer Tonti

    Price: $199 (originally $289.99, available in four sizes and two colors)

    5. 20% off Porter Seal Tight Glass Containers — 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.

    glass bowls with silicone wraps in different colors and sizes on a shelf

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

    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: $19.04+ (originally $23.80+, available in two sizes and five colors)

    6. 31% off an Amazon Echo Spot, because it will *always* be nice to have a little robot around to help you get through the day with ease.

    Elena Garcia/BuzzFeed

    With the Echo Spot, you can watch videos, control your thermostat, view weather forecasts, read to-do and shopping lists, make phone and video calls, listen to audiobooks, and SO much more!

    "This little semi-sphere is a delightful device that does so many amazing things that even after nearly six months of use, I still don't know everything it's capable of." —Elena Garcia

    Price: $89.99 (originally $129.99)

    7. 20% off a pet grooming glove that makes brushing the excess hair from your cat, dog, or even horse as easy as petting them. Better for you *and* your fur babies.

    The grooming glove with silicone nodules, full of hair held in front of a French bulldog
    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. 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. 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 water — either works) but it’s no biggie. The silicone actually makes it really easy to keep this clean. This is one of those inexpensive add-ons that any pet owner should have on hand." —AnaMaria Glavan

    Price: $7.99 (originally $9.99, available in left-handed, right-handed, and double-sided versions)

    8. 20% off a pair of Apple AirPods Pro, which are more than just trendy. They have amazing sound-quality, stunning noise cancellation, and are actually comfortable, even if you wear them all day.

    Emma Lord / BuzzFeed

    "Here's the main thing you need to know: the noise cancellation on the AirPods Pro is genuinely, alarmingly effective. The first time I put these on and toggled it into noise cancelling mode it was like the whole world fell away. Like, walking down the street I felt like Anne Hathaway in an early 2010s rom com because I genuinely could not hear one thing on a busy crowded New York City street except pop music in my ears. And while it's a full mood that I appreciate while I'm out walking, it's gone from 'wow, neat!' to 'oh, cool, I can't exist without these' when it comes to working from home. They're also super comfy and stay put — and I am saying that as someone who wears them pretty much all through my waking hours. I take them on long, absurdly sweaty runs and they don't budge." —Emma Lord

    Price: $199 (originally $249)

    9. 44% off a Lodge pre-seasoned cast-iron skillet with the uncanny ability to sauté, sear, bake, broil, braise, fry, or grill any meal to perfection. Want a solid kitchen investment? Look no further than this beauty, which is perfect for almost every meal you'll want to whip up — we're talking breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

    cast iron pan cooking asparagus and salmon

    This is the cast-iron I have, and it pretty much just lives on my stovetop because I use it so much. While cast irons are most well-known for getting a good sear on meat, it's just as — if not more — amazing at crisping up veggies to perfection. 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.

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

    10. 30% off a six-pack of Garnier Moisture Bomb sheet masks that will give your face the hydration it craves for many self-care Sundays to come.

    Kaysey Davis / BuzzFeed

    "I love a good sheet mask, and the Garnier Moisture Bomb sheet mask is one of my absolute favourites. Unlike other masks that are made of microgel, cellulose, or foil, this mask is made out of cotton, which is not only super soft, but more environmentally friendly. The cotton has a bit of stretch to it, so it's easier to fit it around my face, nose, and lips than other masks. Even after I remove this mask, there is so much product left on my skin and in the package that I use it the excess serum on my neck. I can immediately see brighter, smoother, and more hydrated skin after just 15 minutes on my face. I use them a couple times a week before I go to bed, so I wake up with my skin at its best." —Kaysey Davis

    Price: $10.46 for a six-pack (originally $14.94, also available in five other varieties)

    11. 46% off Azul — a unique board game that 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 meant for two to four people ages 8 and up.

    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)

    12. 40% off a shower curtain liner with mesh storage pockets you can count on to store the intense amount of shampoos, conditioners, body washes, and face washes you rotate through.

    buzzfeed editor's clear shower curtain liner with large pockets holding products
    Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

    "Yep, you're looking at my shower! I upgraded from a corner tension rod caddy and never want to go back. The mesh pockets drain water so your liner won't get all icky. And they make it easy to tell the difference between the minimalist packaging for your face wash and shave cream when it's way too early in the morning." —Elizabeth Lilly

    Price: $15 (originally $24.99)

    13. 50% off an Ina Garten cookbook — one of the only ones that has ever gotten me to actually follow a recipe. Everything I've ever cooked from this book has been incredibly delicious, and we all cook at home so much these days, it'll be nice to have a few new ideas.


    I'm normally a rogue chef, loosely following a recipe on occasion but rarely sticking to one if consulting one at all. This cookbook is the first in some time that actually inspired me to follow a recipe to the letter. I've loved everything I've made and picked up a few new skills and flavor combos that I now take into my rogue-ness. Best of both worlds! "Orange-Roasted Rainbow Carrots" and "Roasted Broccoli with Panko Gremolata" are two faves!

    Price: $17.46 (originally $35)

    14. 20% off a Maybelline concealer with goji berry and Haloxyl because no one needs to know that you binged The Office yet again last night. Just a quick swipe of this (there's an attached sponge applicator so no need to worry about packing a brush) and *poof* your dark circles are now a thing of the past.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    "It’s not too creamy or thick, yet it still gives solid coverage without the cake-y feeling. It blends incredibly well with every foundation I wear (not at the same time, LOL) — and I have a lot of foundations. I also really enjoy the sponge applicator. I still go over whatever I apply with a Beauty Blender to get that matte look, but having the sponge makes it easier and means I don’t have to use my fingers to dab under my eyes. When I am done with my entire routine, my eyes look lighter and brighter, but not in a way that’s totally obvious — even when photos are taken and the flash is on. Basically what I am saying here is this is a staple beauty product that, IMHO, deserves a place in every makeup bag!" —Kayla Suazo

    Price: $7.98 (originally $9.99, available in 18 shades).

    15. 25% off Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water so you can gently remove every last bit of your makeup at the end of the day. You are taking off your makeup every night...right?

    hand holding large bottle of product

    This micellar water works for all skin types and is paraben-, fragrance-, sulfate-, and silicone-free.

    This is one of my favorite makeup removers, because it's no-fuss, not oily *or* drying like many others, and comes in the biggest bottle imaginable for a very affordable price. If you're at all less-than-satisfied with your current makeup removal routine, I highly recommend giving this stuff a try!

    Price: $6.78 (originally $8.99)

    This product won best makeup remover in the affordable price category on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    16. Up to 30% off Stasher bags — reusable silicone sandwich and snack bags that will help you transport your food safely, store leftovers, reduce your plastic waste, and so much more. "Yum" to all!

    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.

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

    17. 20% off a Cinemood 360 Portable Projector so you can create a cinematic movie-watching experience in the comfort of your home, backyard, or truly anywhere there's an empty wall!

    hand holding small black cube-shaped projector

    The Cinemood 360 has a ton of streaming services like Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, YouTube 360, and Disney+ already accessible from its menu, as well as built-in speakers. It has a five-hour battery life and can make up to a 12-foot projection depending on where you place it in relation to a wall — that's pretty darn big!

    "I’m a huge cinephile so I’m always looking for cool gadgets and gizmos that promise to enhance my cinematic experience . The Cinemood 360 is a huge upgrade for anyone who purchased the older Cinemood edition. It has more streaming options and the picture is clearer and brighter, no need for complete darkness to see the picture. I like to take this little buddy with me during movie night with my nephews. It’s small which makes it easy for travel and has a built-in speaker (even though I connect it to my Bluetooth for that surround effect). It’s especially nice now during quarantined weekends. We can make our own little 'movie in the park' situation, and by park I mean backyard." —Kit Stone

    Price: $399.95 (originally $499.95)

    18. 15% off a Biolite 330 Lumen Headlamp that's one of my favorite pieces of outdoor gear, hands-down. When I'm backpacking, loose batteries are the last thing I want to carry, so this rechargeable lamp is a must.

    Rachel Dunkel / BuzzFeed, Rachel Dunkel

    I love to camp and backpack, and this headlamp from BioLite is the one for me. It sits flush against your forehead to provide the most comfort and least slippage possible. It's moisture-wicking to combat sweat, is rechargeable, has multiple brightness levels (including red light), and can be adjusted to face downward if you need to see ahead of you on a trail — a very necessary feature! I'm really looking forward to using it more on future outdoor trips — it's a relief to know this is one sturdy piece of gear I don't have to worry about.

    Price: $50.95 (originally $59.95, available in four colors)

    19. 47% off a 36-pack of Nexcare Pimple Patches to suck the sebum out of any pimple that pops up. *Sigh* I wish all my problems could be solved with a sticker.

    Katy Herman / BuzzFeed

    "These pics were taken after leaving the patch on overnight, which is how I find them to be most effective. They need several hours to really knock out a blemish. I also use them during the day, but often find I take them off too early. They also work best on pimples that are already a little bit open — a sucker that's not quite ready to pop won't usually yield results as dramatic as this. Still, putting on a patch during the day or on a non-open zit can still help an acne emergency. I find that they mask the zit a bit and help prevent you from picking at it or making it worse. If nothing else, the blemish is usually a little less huge and swollen when a patch comes off. I keep a sheet of 'em in my work bag, my purse, my toiletry bag, and my bathroom shelf. When I'm out somewhere and have a pimple that's bugging me, I want to use one right away. It's basically as much of a purse necessity as lotion or ChapStick." —Katy Herman

    Price: $4.22 (originally $7.99)

    20. 38% off a waterproof Kindle Paperwhite so you can save money (and storage space) on all the books you love — you can even check ebooks out from your local library to your Kindle *for free*.

    Abby Kass / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    "I've been an avid Kindle user for the past five years, but when I saw this version, I knew it was time to upgrade. The main selling point is the fact that this one is waterproof. So waterproof, in fact, that it can be in up to 2 meters of fresh water for more than 60 minutes. Plus, it's lighter, has more storage, and the battery lasts for WEEKS. I took this on vacation with me and was so impressed. I was able to sit on the ledge in the pool and read without worrying about getting the device wet. And I even put it in the water to test, and it still works perfectly. Plus, I used it every day and didn't have to charge it the whole time I was on the trip. That gets a big gold star in my book." —Abby Kass

    Price: $79.99+ (originally $129.99+, available in 8GB and 32GB versions and four colors)

    21. 30% off a pair of Beats Powerbeats Pro wireless earphones with up to nine hours of listening time, adjustable over-the-ear hooks for stay-in-place comfort, and sweat and water-resistance so you can feel confident mid-workout.

    buzzfeed editor holding two in-ear wireless headphones with over-ear hooks
    Emma McAnaw / BuzzFeed

    "These Beats headphones have been a real game-changer for me. The sound quality is SO MUCH better than my cheap headphones, which has actually really improved my experience at the gym. I find it easier to stay motivated now that my music is *crystal clear* (and I can't hear myself wheezing on the treadmill). I was worried it would be hard to connect their Bluetooth settings to my phone and computer (again...I can't handle can openers), but the whole process is super self-explanatory. And they stay connected for pretty long distances — I can walk away from my phone to the other side of the room without interrupting my music. They can hold a charge for a pretty long time, as long you always store them in their charging case. I usually use them for a full work day without needing to re-charge them. Plus, they're really comfy in my ears and never fall out, thanks to their clever hook design (if you have comfort issues with Apple headphones, these will probably feel better)!" —Emma McAnaw

    Price: $174.95 (originally $249.95, available in eight colors)

    22. 19% off a 16-piece set of Rubbermaid Brilliance Food Containers 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

    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.

    "After using them regularly for a couple of weeks, I was quite impressed by their performance. The lid and base are both made of Tritan plastic, which is durable and shatter-resistant. They're completely odorless like glass but a bit more lightweight, and the clear plastic doesn't get cloudy or stained by heavy sauces. These containers feature convenient air vents under the latches, so I don't have to open the entire lid to microwave my food, which prevents splatters. Perhaps my favorite feature? The fact that they don't leak — AT ALL!!!" —Yi Yang

    Price: $48.40 (originally $59.99)

    To read Yi's entire review, head to "Stop Searching For The Perfect Lunch Containers Because I’ve Found Them."

    23. 20% off a foldable exercise bike, because with winter approaching, it's gonna be less pleasant to take actual bike rides pretty soon. It has a magnetic tension system to up the difficulty, and handy features on the screen so you can track your time, speed, distance, and more!

    model on the bike

    "I bought this bike just as the pandemic was starting this spring, and it was a *great* choice. I put it together in nooooo time flat, with the help of a handy YouTube video (as suggested by one of the reviewers). And the fold-up size is great, but the bike is sturdy and has great features for the price! I love the cushioned seat, which is muuuuuch comfier than most exercise bike seats I've sat on." —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Price: $159 (originally $199.99)

    24. Up to 25% off Adidas Superstar sneakers I don't think will ever go out of style. That said, I'm biased, because I wear these alllllll the time and love 'em.

    white adidas sneakers with three black stripes on the side

    I was never really a tennis shoe person, but then I moved to New York and needed to become one because of the whole "walking everywhere" thing. These are really comfy, go with everything, and are all-around a great shoe. I'll be buying a new pair when mine finally give out (from no fault of their own, I've just put an INTENSE amount of miles on them).

    Price: $59.95+ (originally $80, available in women's sizes 5–10)
