Need some retail therapy to close out the weekend? Our team has scoured the mega-retailer's site to put together a quick-and-dirty list of the top sales for you. So what are today's best Amazon deals, you ask? Well, you can score a bestselling smart TV for nearly 40% off. How about bestselling earbuds for $22? Or maybe you'd you want to try out the Fire TV Stick for just $28. There's a lot to explore! Let's have a closer look at these stellar Amazon bargains, shall we?
Don't let the low price on this set fool you — the 'wow' factor is high. It has a picture as crisp and colors as vivid as models well above its price point. The audio, too, is top-notch. And because it's a Fire TV, this model lets you stream 4K movies and TV shows from Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max, YouTube, Disney+, Prime Video, SlingTV, Paramount+, Peacock and more without a separate streaming box or stick. And we love that Alexa is included in the remote. So if you’re not a fan of endlessly scrolling through a grid of titles (and who is?), you can just say, 'Alexa, play The Watcher, and voilà!
"The picture quality is amazing, especially when you factor in the price," says one reviewer. "I could not recommend this TV enough... I've had this TV for over a year, and I still think it's awesome. Because it is."
The Fire TV Stick 4K is one of the best ways to instantly add video streaming to your TV without getting a new set, and right now you can get it for an incredible $30 — that's 40% off! Instead of cable, you’ll get access to thousands of shows and movies through streaming apps via the internet. It even comes with an Alexa integration which means you can use voice commands to control it. So far, it's racked up more than 125,000 five-star reviews.
"I love my Fire Stick," wrote one cord cutter. "Cable company upset me by raising my bill about every 3 months. Was getting close to 200 dollars. They would not give me a break. I stopped the cable all together and watch with just my Fire Stick. I DO NOT MISS CABLE AT ALL!"
Need to charge up your phone, laptop or tablet while you're out? The Yacikos Portable Charger is here for you. This on-the-go charger injects power into your devices while you're out and about. No more stressing over a low phone battery! Simply plug in your device and let it go to work. It's also nice and compact, and can easily be slipped into your bag.
"I just received this charger and since I do photography I am out for long periods and wanted to keep some equipment AND my phone charged. This charger kept everything charged yesterday and still has plenty of juice," a happy customer said. "The one feature I really like that my other that died on me has is the on/off button!! This helps save the battery life. I have to say I am impressed!"
More than 217,000 Amazon shoppers are in love with these buds. One of the things they rave about? The superior audio quality. That's courtesy of large, 8mm speaker drivers that produce powerful, crystal clear sound and heart-thumping bass. Bonus: They're waterproof.
"I’ve been ordering headphones from Amazon for years," wrote a rave reviewer. "Most of them are always great. These headphones are AMAZING. "I got 'em with the intention of just surviving some splashes; not submerging them. Well, one fell out into the water. I grabbed them out after a couple of seconds. They worked great. Okay! Let’s go the extra yard. I started swimming with them under the water. (Keep in mind I wasn’t that deep.) THEY WORKED GREAT. I have not one thing bad to say about these headphones."
If you want a deeper audio experience, some people swear by on-ear headphones. JBL's Tune 510BT offer the brand's signature Pure Bass sound and have wireless Bluetooth 5.0 streaming. They also have workhorse of a battery, which gives you up to 40 hours of listening time on a single charge. And if you have holiday travel plans, they're perfect for planes.
“These are very good headphones, and I don't just mean based on the price,” said one shopper. “These are all-around great headphones! I had Beats for four years that just fell apart. Searched on a budget and decided on these, and I don't feel like I am sacrificing at all. Very comfortable. Not tight on my head at all. I travel on airplanes twice a month, so I wear these for hours on end. No earache or head pressure.”
If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
