To find out what other stellar savings we managed to scrouge up this Friday, take a peek at our list of the site’s five deals below!
1. A $70 discount: This ultra-popular TCL Roku TV
Looking for a new television to take in the big game? Allow us to direct your attention to this TCL 32S325 Roku Smart LED TV, which has fallen by $70 from $199.99 to $129.99. We named the 2017 model, the 32S305 (currently sold out), as one of the best 32-inch TVs on the market for its built-in Roku platform and high value for the price point. Its 720 pixels (also seen in this newer, 2019 sale edition) won’t offer full HD resolution or 120 Hz refresh rates, but nearly 24,000 Amazon customers have given this updated model a collective 4.5-star review, calling it “excellent” and raving that they’re “impressed with the quality of the picture.”
2. Save $10: This super handy mini glue gun
Whether you’re doing arts and crafts with the little ones or engaging in home improvement projects, there’s no shortage of ways a glue gun can come in handy. This CCBetter mini hot glue gun, in particular has the official seal of approval from nearly 6,000 Amazon shoppers who love it for its ability to heat up quickly and stay hot. At 10.6 ounces, it’s plenty lightweight, and there’s even an attached stand bracket to keep it from touching surfaces. Even better, you’ll get 30 included glue sticks with your order. Right now, you can get this device on on sale for $10.10, which is nearly $10 off its $19.99 list price. Considering that we found this same glue gun going for as much as $35 elsewhere, that’s an absolute steal!
3. Less than $20: One of our favorite coffee grinders
Rise and grind, indeed! With the Hamilton Beach Fresh Grind 4.5-ounce electric grinder, you’ll have everything you need to get your morning started out right. In testing, we found that it was best suited for single users (you can only grind 6 tablespoons of coffee at once), but on the plus side, it won’t take up much space in your kitchen. More importantly, all of our beans were evenly ground by the time thing gadget was through. The chamber comes out for even cleaning, and you can even use it for spices, essentially giving you two tools in one. Right now, it’s $10 off its usual $29.99 price, so you’ll get it for just $19.99.
4. Save 41%: This super sturdy Lodge wok
A flat-bottomed wok can be a real game-changer when it comes to cooking, particularly for stir frys, deep frying and steaming. Thanks to the concave shape, heat will be evenly concentrated at the bottom of the pan, and its steep sides help to prevent splatters. One of the best models we’ve ever tested, the Lodge Pro-Logic 14-inch cast-iron wok, is currently up for grabs for 41% off its normal $85, falling to $49.99 at Amazon. While this cookware presented some challenges when tossing veggies due to its heft (it’s a whopping 11 pounds!), it seared beautifully and stayed put on the stove as we were cooking, making it ideal for crisping up delectable fried foods. As an added bonus, its modern design is attractive enough to double as a serving piece and it’s got handles on each sides that will help with the lifting.
5. $51 in savings: A portable gas fire bowl for your next adventure
Make the transition from summer to fall a little less bitter and a little more sweet with this deal on the customer-loved Outland Firebowl 893 portable gas fire pit. Lightweight and designed for transport, it’s just what you’ll need for your next socially-distant getaway. It comes fully equipped with a cover and carry kit, an attached 10-foot hose for a 20-pound propane tank (not included), a steel 58,000 BTU bowl and 4.4-pounds worth of natural lava rocks to place inside. After a quick, simple setup, you’ll have a roaring fire on your hands in minutes. Today, you can get for $109.17, which is $50.82 off its usual $159.99 price.
