1. Save 10%: Our best-valued starter tool kit
If you’ve jumped on the home renovation bandwagon during quarantine, you’re going to want to check out this 148-piece Cartman tool set—a.k.a. the best-valued starter toolkit on the market. Despite it’s low price tag (this set, now $26.99, typically goes for $29.99), we found that it had everything we were after sans for a level. We especially loved the interchangeable screwdriver handle, which comes complete with nine different sockets for you to play around with. While the quality won’t match your pricier tools (the needle-nose pliers, in particular, felt a bit sticky to us), the value for the price point seemed right on-point. Included in this kit are a 10-foot tape measurer, an 8-ounce claw hammer, 6-inch needle nose pliers, five wrenches, a bit driver connector, the aforementioned screwdriver, nine sockets and 30 bits, a snap-off utility knife, five precision screwdrivers, 12 hex keys, insulated tape, screws and nails.
2. $20 off: One of the best computer monitors you can buy for less than $200
If you’re sick and tired of straining your eyes to see on your little laptop while working from home, we’ve got just the solution in this Acer R20HY bidx monitor. Once $129.99 and now $109.99, this 23.8-inch screen landed itself among the best computer monitors we’ve tested under $200 for its simple-yet-efficient operation, slim profile and port compatibility. Its picture isn’t perfect, and you won’t get speakers with it, but we found that for the price it had “good viewing angles, clean-looking colors” and was bright enough for most room settings.
3. Nearly $50 off: This 3-piece chaise and table set
Nights spent enjoying the sweet summer air from your own backyard are just heating up. To make sure you’re making the most of them, why not pick up this Giantex three-piece zero gravity chaise and folding table set? Normally $169.99, it’s now on sale for $129.99 and falls even further to just $123.49 when you click the coupon box beneath the price. This neutral-colored set has earned a solid 4.4-rating from the 200-plus reviewers who have tried it so far, with callouts to its quality, comfort and sturdiness. “Better chairs then what I thought, they held a 279-pound man,” wrote one buyer. “No problem and a very nice table.”
4. 14% off: A Shark Tank gadget that’s incredibly useful in the kitchen
Fans of ABC’s Shark Tank will need no introduction to this splatter-proof frying pan guard, aptly dubbed the Frywall. This no-brainer kitchen gadget, which we named one of 21 weird-but-incredibly useful products to be found on Amazon, is essentially a BPA-free silicone piece that fits on top of your pan to provide protection from any would-be grease splatter. Not only did the invention score a $100,000 investment from Shark Lori Greiner in 2018, it has since won the hearts of Amazon shoppers the world over, with more than 1,500 reviewers giving it a collective 4.4-star rating. Right now, you can get the medium 10-inch version for a 14% discount on the site as it falls from $21.95 to $18.95.
5. Down $15: This 3-in-1 emergency device
Not only are we smack dab in the middle of hurricane season, summer storms are a-brewin’ (I should know—a tornado recently touched down right near my house!). While there are plenty of essentials you should have on hand in case of an emergency, you can get one on sale today in the form of this RunningSnail Solar Crank NOAA weather radio, which drops as low as $30.51 in the lime green hue. This handy little device, regularly $45.90, will not only tune you into AM and FM stations, it can also double as a power source for your phone and triple as a 1-watt flashlight. There’s also a rechargeable battery that can provide up to 12 hours of light or four to six hours of radio play. More than 1,000 of its nearly 3,000 reviews are 5-stars, with one buyer writing, “It picks up AM and FM very clear for a small radio. The NOAA weather channel comes in nice and clear as well. It is an adjustable flashlight, sends out SOS signal and it has a very loud panic alarm. … And it is a great looking radio.”
