Headphones and earbuds
We hear so much about the glorious AirPods. But if you have a Samsung Galaxy (or any Android phone for that matter), you can get your very own wireless earbuds that work just as well — or better — for less.
Samsung Galaxy Buds+ are on sale for $100, a cool $50, off at Amazon. That’s over 30 percent off these super-popular earbuds. How popular? They've garnered a five-star rating from more than 58,000 reviewers.
One iPhone 11 user raved: "iPhone user approves these headphones and in my opinion wayyyy better than the standard AirPods. Prettier, more discreet, more comfortable, less expensive, newer technology...LOVE that Samsung gave Apple users more support. You’re able to change around some sound profiles and customize the headset. One of the cool features is the ambient sound, which allows you to hear more of yourself and the environment around you. Very useful when you’re out and about shopping, yet need to take a call or want to listen to music but still be able to hear people around you."

Want to surround your home with a little magic? Govee's patio light kit illuminates your porch (etc.) with 15 glowing LED bulbs on a 48-foot string. It normally sells for $50, but right now you can get it for just $27 when you clip the on-page coupon.
These are "smart" lights, too, meaning you can use the Govee app to turn them on/off at designated times, control brightness, even set up various "scene" modes. You can do likewise using voice commands, provided you've got an Alexa- or Google Assistant–powered device.
They turned one happy camper into a glamper! "These LED lights were a breeze to hang from tree to tree, and even from our tent to a tree," they said. "They were low power draw, so our Jackery Power generator powered them no problem. When we walked back up to our site from a hike it looked amazing. These were the 48-foot version and had several settings. We used a warm glow...how amazing they looked."

The hand vac from the folks at ThisWorx includes three different attachments, including a brush nozzle that'll dislodge pet hair and those stubborn, stuck-on spills. And this is so satisfying: Because the trash container is clear, you can watch all that debris going into the machine. Ahh.
Reviewers are loving the convenience of this overachieving sucker. "A powerhouse in a little package," raved one five-star reviewer. "This is a great little vacuum to clean the car. I bought the corded unit.... The product is excellent at getting ground-in dirt out of the car's carpets, and with the hose that comes with the unit it's easy to get into tight places.... One of the best things along with its great cleaning ability is the bag that came with the unit. It makes it easy to store along with all of its attachments. So mine rides around in the car and can be used anytime because it plugs right into the power plug (lighter)."

Even if you've already stashed the grill away for the cold weather ahead, that doesn't mean you can't have your favorite grilled dishes until next summer — you can make them right on your kitchen countertop! The Techwood grill is totally smoke-free (so your fire alarm won't have a fit) and cooks your meats and veggies evenly while locking in juices and flavors. It's so easy to use, too — all you need is one touch, and you're ready to put some char on burgers, chicken, veggies, steaks and more. Something else to whet your appetite: Right now, an on-page coupon drops your price on it to a cool $100.
"I absolutely love it!" a shopper shared. "It has a permanent place on my counter, since I use it so much. It does gorgeous steaks, great chicken, easy fish and delectable vegetables. My husband loves baby canned potatoes. I toss them in melted butter with salt and pepper and grill them on high until spots are golden and potatoes are hot. Never fails to please!"

In a perfect world, brushing alone would give us the perfect pearly whites of our dreams. Unfortunately, we sometimes need a bit of extra help, and whitening kits are the way to go — that is, if you don't want to spend hundreds for an in-office treatment. What if you only want to spend a ridonculous $30? This one by Cali White includes an LED light and two full syringes of whitening serum formulated with sensitive teeth in mind. It works quickly — you'll see results after just one use and full results after 7-10 days of daily use of up to 30 minutes. Plus, it's made in the USA and is entirely vegan, too.
"Cali White stole my heart!" a shopper reported. "As a hygienist, I’m always curious about any new products, especially the whitening ones! Cali White takes the prize! I’ve tried several take-home whitening kits, but those always made my teeth extra sensitive (which I didn’t like). Cali White is gentle, easy to use and you can see the results right in front of your eyes! I was completely amazed!"

Bedding and Home
New season, new bedding, so make sure these pillows are part of your new setup. These cloud-like pillows are filled with plush, odor-free microfiber and are designed to retain their shape use after use. Their fluffiness doesn't mean they're so soft you sink through them, though — in fact, they're a great fit for sleepers who prefer firmer support.
"AMAAAAAAZING!" shared a shopper. "I’m at a luxury hotel right now and I miss my pillows at home...they are fluffy and soft and amazing! I like these better than my expensive pillows I bought. I have recommended these to my family and friends. I am buying another pair for my guest room. these are such a steal — especially for the price!!!"
