Here are five of the best deals we’ve tracked down on Amazon for Thursday.
1. 20% off: This top-rated food storage container set
Shopping for new food storage containers? You can get this 4.8-star rated Joseph Joseph storage container set for 20% off, so instead of paying the usual price of $29.99, it drops to $23.99 for $6 in savings. This is part of Amazon’s Big Labor Day Sale on select food storage and organization sets, which features up to 35% off on a number of similar items. We’re personally jazzed about this one because Joseph Joseph makes some of our favorite kitchen tools, like this extendable dish drying rack ($49.99) and slice and sharpener ($29) and more. With this group, which has more than 600 glowing reviews on the site, you’ll get 10 microwave- and top rack dishwasher-safe pieces. “The lids are great. Snap-on and leak-proof. You can also add on to the set and the lids will all lock together when storing,” wrote one happy camper.
2. Save 15%: This portable water filter with nearly 26,000 reviews
Whether you’re camping or trying to put together your own emergency kit, the LifeStraw can help you gain access to safe drinking water. According to the company, this filter can decontaminate up to 1,000 gallons of water and remove up to 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria and 99.9% of waterborne protozoan parasites, plus nix up to .02 microns. Nearly 26,000 Amazon reviewers swear by this 4.8-star rated product and it consistently ranks as one of the most popular items our readers shop for. Originally priced at $19.95, you can get it for $14.89 right now to save 15%.
3. Nearly half-off: This Alexa-enabled car charger
The Anker Roav VIVA has more than 2,600 positive reviews on Amazon and is one of the best-selling car chargers on the site. One reason why? It’s unique compared to other options because Amazon’s voice assistant, Alexa, is built right into it. That means you can ask for directions or put on some tunes simply by asking aloud. Gone will be the days where you get distracted fiddling with your phone’s GPS—this charger streamlines everything. Additionally, it features Anker’s unique PowerIQ technology, allowing the VIVA to charge quickly. Ordinarily priced at $28.80, you can get it on sale for $15.59 right now when you use promo code viva0901 at checkout, so you’ll be saving a little more than $13.
4. Up to 33% off: This hanging umbrella with close to 900 reviews
Patio season may be winding down, but the savings on outdoor furniture are just heating up. Case in point? This Le Conte Offset 10-foot hanging market umbrella, which drops to $139 in most colors from its originally price range of $159 to $169 for a markdown of up to 22%. This umbrella features five adjustment levels to help you maneuver it any which way you please, and a UV- and water-resistant canopy. Amazon shoppers, who gave it a collective 4.5-star rating, also love it for its easy assembly. Note that a base must be purchased separately.
5. Less than $30: This shoe rack with more than 8,000 reviews
Never underestimate the impact of a good shoe rack. We’re serious—the chaos and general shoe-fusion that can result when all your sneakers, heels and flats are in a jumble at the back of your closet can be quietly agonizing—especially if you’re trying to find a pair you really love. I personally own this Seville Classics 3-tier stackable 12-pair shoe rack. Part of what drew me were its high reviews—it has more than 8,000 positive testimonials from Amazon shoppers and a 4.7-star rating on the site. As someone who’s absolutely hopeless at assembling furniture on my own, I, too, found this rack to be delightfully easy to put together. Unlike others I’ve tried and inevitably tossed out before, this one also doesn’t wobble or crack under the literal weight of your footwear. I’ve had mine for going on three years and it’s survived one major move, not to mention a heck of a lot of misuse. Originally priced at $31.99, you can save a few bucks right now when you pick it up for $29.10.
