1. Less than $15: This 4.8-star rated charger
Does your phone charger need an upgrade? This RAVPower 30-watt 2-port fast charger is the model you’ve been waiting for. You can use it to power up two devices at once, as it’s built with a USB-C power delivery port that delivers an 18-watt charge and a USB-A port that gives a 12-watt charge for 30-watts of total output. This 4.8-star device, which has more than 2,000 glowing reviews on Amazon, can juice iPhones in about 30 minutes, say shoppers. It’s slim, 2.8-ounce body makes this little guy easy to travel with, and it doesn’t add too much bulk, either. Originally priced at $15.99 and on sale for $13.99, you can get it for $10.99 thanks to an on-page coupon located beneath the price for $5 in savings.
2. 10% off: This leaf blower with more than 4,200 rave reviews
Fall has arrived but it’s not all pumpkin spice lattes and flannel shirts, friends: It’s also a time for tackling yard work. For many homeowners, dealing with piles of red and yellow leaves every autumn can be a real headache, but this Greenworks 40-volt cordless leaf blower—originally $129 and on sale for $116.33—is here to help. (You can also get it for $103.99 at Greenworks.) This battery-powered device has variable speeds and operates at up to 150 miles-per-hour (mph), so it’s nothing to sneeze at. With more than 4,200 rave reviews on Amazon, this 4.2-star rated pick is one of the most popular on the site. Shoppers say it’s simple to use and charges quickly (in about 15 minutes). “This blower has a ton of power … can blow wet leaves [and] lasts for about 30 minutes at full power, which is pretty good for an electric blower,” wrote one happy reviewer.
3. Save $8: The best evaporator humidifier money can buy
Humidifiers add moisture to the air when it’s too dry, which makes them a must-have during the harsher winter months. If you’re trying to ease the pain of a sore throat or a stubborn cough, it could be a huge help. Right now, you can get one of the best humidifiers we’ve ever tested, the Honeywell HCM350W, on sale for a solid discount. Originally $69.99, it’s on sale in white for $61.99 for $8 in savings. We considered it the best evaporator humidifier (i.e., devices that don’t need to heat water to create humidity) because it has a built-in ultraviolet (UV) light that the company claims can kill up to 99.999 percent of microorganisms. It was also able to raise our testing chamber’s humidity by 17 percent. This 4.2-star rated machine—which has more than 8,000 stellar reviews on Amazon—also comes with a replaceable water filter, which helped prevent white dust from forming in hard-water spots.
4. Nearly $20 off: One of our favorite running watches
Whether you’re an experienced runner or just trying to buy a gift for one, a running watch is a fabulous investment. For a limited time, you can get this Garmin Forerunner 45, originally $199.99, on sale for $180, so you’ll save about $20. This bad Larry is one of the best running watches we’ve ever sampled for its well-designed user interface, ample size options and no-frills functionality. Like other Garmin watches that we’re obsessed with—namely, our top pick, the Garmin Forerunner 245 Music ($329)—setting up the Forerunner 45 is easy and we liked that the watch’s round shape made the screen highly visible and simple to read. We weren’t crazy about the GPS in this device, as our testers found it often took minutes rather than seconds to acquire (which could be inconvenient for anyone running a race or in new areas). Still, it’s a solid choice, and especially ideal for the dedicated runner who wants a watch without too many added bells and whistles.
5. 59% off: This best- selling bidet with nearly 2,000 positive reviews
“Pure luxury,” wrote one buyer of this 4.4-star rated Bio Bidet BB600 ultimate advanced bidet toilet seat. “I love the heating function and love that I will use far less toilet paper. The warm seat will be very nice when the cold midwestern winter hits.” Originally $799, it falls to $325 for $474 in savings, which is incredible. With nearly 2,000 positive reviews on Amazon, shoppers say it’s a great, eco-friendly alternative to using toilet paper and helped reduce stress they felt over the toilet paper shortage earlier this year. This fully adjustable, heated seat fits most toilets and reviewers say it’s easy to install, too.
