Looking for a better way to get over the hump this Wednesday? Flexing your credit card on a few impulse purchases can be a fun way to let off steam and treat yourself to some fun new stuff for around the house. But why spend more when you can spend less? That’s where the best deals on Amazon come in.
Here at Reviewed, we specialize in finding out what makes products really tick, because we want to know if these things are really worth investing in or not. At our office here in Cambridge, Mass., we test products in our own labs, and we use price tracking tools to analyze whether price cuts are really as good as they seem. Here are five of the best deals we’ve tracked down on Amazon for today.
1. Steal alert: Get this cult-favorite keyboard cleaner for $6
You probably don’t want to think about it, but your keyboard is as gross as a toilet seat. Between all the hair, dirt, and (lets be real here) food crumbs that get wedged between the keys, it’s not wonder that keyboards are regarded as one of the nastiest things out there. This keyboard cleaner gel doesn’t kill germs, but it does make cleaning all those hard-to-get, icky spots on your keyboard way easier—plus, it’s really fun to use, too. Back when I tested this reusable cleaning gel last year, I couldn’t decide what I liked most: how easy it made cleaning my keyboard, dashboard, and other dust and dirt-ridden surfaces, or what a blast it was to play with. Right now, you can save an extra $2 on it and get it for just $6, so grab it while you can, ya filthy animal.
2. Save up to 44% on select Contigo travel mugs
If spending less on coffee each day was one of your big resolutions for 2020, this Contigo travel mug is a must-have. We think it’s one of the best travel mugs out there now, and right now you can get it in select colors (including black and dark plum) for up to 44% off. These mugs are essentially spill-proof thanks to Contigo’s patented Autoseal technology, and in testing, they kept our drinks hot for up to eight hours, which is rad. While we’ve seen these mugs go for under $10 before, this is a great deal and one you definitely don’t want to miss.
3. Gold Box deal: Get incredible savings on select Anker accessories
A better, more reliable way to keep phones, laptops, and other electronic devices charged up? Sign me up. As part of Amazon’s Gold Box deal for today, you can actually save up to 30% on select Anker multi-port chargers and accessories, but the deal we’re most excited about is definitely this 12-outlet power strip, which comes with 3 built-in USB ports. This bad boy is enough to power an entire work station and comes with total surge protection, which is probably the reason why nearly 600 shoppers on Amazon give it glowing reviews. It usually retails for about $34, but for today, you can snag it for a little over $23, so get on that pronto.
4. Save $10: This light therapy alarm clock that’s a total game-changer
Hate rolling out of the covers each morning? The Philips Wake-Up Light Therapy alarm clock could give you—much like it did our Managing Editor Meghan Kavanaugh—a much-needed boost. This popular option is a light therapy lamp and natural sunrise alarm clock in one, and comes with a built-in FM radio and five settings, so you’ll have a smoother wake-up call each morning. This clock is usually about $104, but you can get it for $10 off right now. While it might not seem like a huge discount, keep in mind that this clock has over 7,000 rave reviews on Amazon and it almost never goes on sale, so it’s worth grabbing now for a little discount while you can.
5. Save up to 30% on Play-Doh, Hasbro games, and more
Some of my best memories as a kid involve Hasbro products. From the Game of Life to Yahtzee and so much else, many of their best-selling toys were ones that defined my childhood (and probably yours too). For today only on Amazon, you can get up to 30% off on several classic products, including Connect 4 (Save $4), Guess Who (Save $5.44), and others, and make family game nights as perfect as you remember. My personal fave though? This 24-pack of Play-Doh, since it normally goes for $21 but you get it for under $15, thanks to this deal.
