    Noise-canceling true wireless earbuds for less than $100? No, that’s neither a joke nor a typo. The 1More ComfoBuds Pro channel Apple’s AirPods in terms of styling, and our testers report that they’re not far off in terms of performance at a small fraction of the price.

    Why it’s a good deal: With the on-page coupon, the feature-packed ComfoBuds represent the kind of deal that would have been unheard of just a couple of years ago.

    Bluetooth and Smart Speakers

    Sony’s SRS-XB23 is a great example of when less is more. It doesn’t have bells and whistles, like colorful LEDs that pulsed with the music, but it’s a relatively inexpensive, medium-sized speaker that Sony states is water-resistant. And while it’s missing some of the clarity of the very best portables, our testers say the Sony’s sound is satisfying, making it a great lower-cost option.

    Why It’s a good deal: This is about $7 more than the price we saw for the holidays.

    Think of the Charge 4 as the smaller sibling of JBL’s Xtreme 2. Its light weight and more modest dimensions make it a great choice for those who enjoy carrying a speaker with them. It’s easy to use and has admirable sound quality for a portable speaker. The Charge 4 also features an internal power bank that can charge other devices, and the manufacturer says the device is waterproof to 1 meter, a claim that CR didn’t test.

    Why it’s a good deal: At this price, it’s a bargain for a good-sounding, water-resistant Bluetooth speaker.

    Our testers find the Flip 5 to be a solid performer, with slightly bass-heavy sound that should please less-than-critical listeners, and enough volume for a medium-size room. Bluetooth pairing is easy, although the low contrast external controls could be a bit easier to see and use. JBL claims that the IPX7 rating makes the speaker waterproof.

    Why it’s a good deal: This is the best price we’ve seen on this model in weeks.

    The Show 8 offers a lot of device for the money. The voice-enabled touchscreen can be useful in a kitchen when you want to follow a recipe while your hands are messy. The sound quality does have flaws—our testers found the treble to be strident and heard echoes in the all-important midrange. The Show 8 also lacks the Zigbee smart home hub found on the latest-generation Echo.

    Why it’s a good deal: This speaker is just $5 more than its lowest price, the best deal you’ll find until Prime Day.

    Coffee Gear

    The Bodum Bistro Electric Burr Coffee Grinder earns solid scores in all our grind-performance tests, and it’s particularly great at producing coarse grounds, which are ideal for cold-brew and French-press coffee. This model is also easy to clean, but its controls are a bit unintuitive, and it’s one of the noisier grinders in our ratings. The Bodum features 12 grind settings, an auto-stop feature, and a timer.

    Why it’s a good deal: This is a hefty discount on one of the best grinders CR has tested. It’s dropped $12 since last week, as well.

    For a brewer with a thermal carafe, consider this deal on the Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91. Our tests show thermal carafes aren’t as easy to hold and pour as glass carafes, but this machine still performs decently for handling. It also offers great brew performance and is quite easy to clean and use.

    Why it’s a good deal: This coffee maker is about $8-$10 more than the low price we saw for Black Friday.

    The Braun BrewSense 12-cup Programmable KF7000BK is an all-around great coffee maker, offering strong brew performance, an easy-to-pour carafe, and plenty of convenient features. Those features include auto-shutoff, a water filter, programming, a cleaning indicator, and a permanent filter.

    Why it’s a good deal: This is back down to the lowest price we’ve seen.

    Air Fryers

    The electronic controls and programmed settings on the Ninja AF101 are among the easiest to see and use, respectively, earning high ratings in our assessments. Cleaning the inside and outside is fairly simple, and the measured capacity of this model is just about average at 3 quarts. Bear in mind that this model runs on the noisy side, with the fan as loud as a countertop microwave.

    Why it’s a good deal: Though it was recently closer to $80 at Amazon, this is still a dynamite discount.

    The Oster DiamondForce Nonstick XL 5 Quart Digital Air Fryer’s digital touchscreen is easy to read. And its programmed settings are easy to use, earning it a favorable score in our controls test. This model also doesn’t make too much noise, and cleaning the inside and outside doesn’t take a lot of elbow grease. Despite the air fryer’s name, the basket has a measured capacity of 3.6 quarts. Like other models we’ve tested, this one comes with a 1-year warranty.

    Why it’s a good deal: This is the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this model.

    Testers find that the Beautiful by Drew Barrymore 6 Quart Touchscreen Air Fryer’s electronic controls are easy to read,  and its programmed settings, easy to use—earning it a high score in our controls test. Cleaning the inside and outside is simple enough, too, and this measured 4-quart model doesn’t produce too much noise. To the delight of décor enthusiasts, this air fryer is available in a range of colors.

    Why it’s a good deal: While this fryer in Merlot has always been $69 at Walmart, the other colors are also now at that same low price.

    Countertop Appliances

    With variable speeds, dial controls, and a reversible shredding and slicing disc, the NutriChef NCFP8 is not one to miss. Although the model doesn’t fare as well when it comes to grating, it still manages a very good rating in overall performance in Consumer Reports’ tests. You’ll find a dough blade plus whipping and juicing attachments included with the food processor. 

    Why it’s a good deal: Already an affordable option, this trusty model is more than $25 off at Walmart.

    This vacuum sealer from Black+Decker is a great option. It gets high scores in CR’s lab tests for speed and dry-food sealing, and its performance for wet-food sealing (e.g., marinated foods) is nearly as strong. It does get a lower than average score for noise, but that’s fairly common for this sort of kitchen tool.

    Why it’s a good deal: This model originally cost $130 and typically retails for closer to $100, and this discount makes it even more appealing.

    Fitness Trackers and Smartwatches

    If you’re looking for a versatile smartwatch under $200, the Fitbit Versa 3 may be a good option. It has a built-in GPS, which allows you to go for a run or ride without taking your smartphone along, plus a blood oxygen sensor, which enhances its sleep-tracking capabilities. It also has a mic and a speaker that allow you to take calls via a Bluetooth connection to your smartphone. Our testers found the Versa 3 to be a solid performer for counting steps and tracking heart rate, and it’s easy to pair with a smartphone.

    Why it’s a good deal: This is the lowest price we’ve seen for this model, $20 less than the previous low.

    The Fitbit Inspire 2 fitness tracker has been on sale since mid-April, but the price continues to fall. It’s now only $7 more than the lowest we’ve seen all year. It gets top marks from our testers for step-count and heart rate accuracy, and it earns a spot among the best fitness trackers for its ease of use, pairing, and readability in low light. The Inspire 2 also has a very generous claimed battery life of 10 days (we don’t test that characteristic) and built-in GPS, a feature not found on many other fitness trackers.

    Why it’s a good deal: The price is now $5 less than the best we’ve seen.

    Smart Home

    The Bosma Aegis Smart Lock SL0001 receives high scores across the board in our tests, including ease of remote access. This retrofit smart lock also comes with plenty of features, such as auto-locking, auto-unlocking, voice and app control via Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, electronic keys, an access log, a door open/close sensor, and a tamper alarm to warn you of a possible break in.

    Why it’s a good deal: With the on-page coupon, this is now just $9 more than the lowest price we saw last year.

    If you’re looking for an indoor security camera to keep an eye on your pets, our editors found the Arlo Essential Indoor to be a close second to the Furbo dog camera. And even though the Arlo is technically a home security camera, which means it lacks functionalities like tossing treats, it still provides the necessary technology for checking in on your pets. Our editors found the device’s video angle and video quality to be great, and its corresponding app was easy to use. While the setup was a bit tricky—and the privacy shield makes a noise that could alert your pet when it comes on—it did impress as far as sound. 

    Why it’s a good deal: This is a nice discount, especially if you’ve already got Arlo smart home devices.


    L.L.Bean Wicked Good Slippers

    These L.L.Bean Wicked Good Slippers have a lot going for them—they’re made with sheepskin and lined with super-soft shearling (the pelt of sheepskin). Though none of our testers ranked them in the gutter, they were not the favorites, either. Some of the testers found their heels slipping uncomfortably out of the back of the slipper while walking, and the rawhide ties appear mostly for aesthetics. 

    Why it’s a good deal: The Bramble Berry is the only color on sale right now, so if you like the look of them, you’re in luck.

    Ugg Fluff Yeah Slides

    Comfort is key for those self care days, and these Ugg slides can help you really treat your feet right. Our tester called them "comically fluffy" and said it felt like she was walking on clouds. But these are heavy clouds, weighing in at 1 pound for the pair, heavier than most slippers. The soles are made of thick rubber, so you can wear them outdoors too.

    Why it’s a good deal: Uggs are very coveted right now, so any discount is worth a look, let alone a 30 to 40 percent savings.

    Curling Irons

    Lunata Beauty Belisa Curling Iron

    If you hate a tangle of cords when you’re trying to get ready, the Belisa curling iron might be a great option. This cordless model has adjustable heating from 200° F to 400° F and took only a minute to reach its lowest temperature. The charge lasts about 35 minutes, and it automatically shuts off when it runs out of power, so it may be best suited for people who can style their hair quickly.

    Why it’s a good deal: A sub-$100 price is hard to come by for this high-tech curling iron, and the sale price has actually dipped another $12 in recent weeks.

    Bio Ionic Long Barrel Curling Iron

    The Bio Ionic curling iron might b a great choice for longer hair. The extra-long barrel, 2 inches longer than standard curling irons, and multiple temperature settings produced bouncy, shiny curls that lasted for days for our testers, but one person thought the barrel was too long for her short hair.

    Why it’s a good deal: This is $50 off the regular price, and it’s only available at Walmart.

    Yoga Mats

    Iuga Pro Non-Slip Yoga Mat

    With a highly grippy surface and a medium amount of cushioning, the Iuga yoga mat is a great option for novice and experienced yogis alike. Plus, it comes with a carrying strap that makes it even more convenient to tote to and from class.

    Why it’s a good deal: The full price is much lower than many comparable absorbent cushion yoga mats, and the discount makes it even more affordable.

    Gaiam Performance Yoga Mat

    Consumer Reports tested 19 yoga mats to find out how each one holds up to regular use. Gaiam’s Performance mat aces the drying and grip tests CR put it through but offers somewhat less cushioning. That’s not necessarily a bad thing; a firmer mat can provide more stability for standing poses and can be easier on the wrists.

    Why it’s a good deal: This is within a few dollars of the lowest price we’ve seen.

    More Deals

    Cat Mate C3000 Automatic Dog & Cat Feeder, 26-cup

    This automatic feeder allows pet owners to schedule up to three meals a day, in any desired quantity, Arnold says. The device has a maximum capacity of 26 cups and can be programmed to give out meals as small as 2 teaspoons.

    Why it’s a good deal: This one’s currently on sale for 60 percent off its original price.

    The Hoover ONEPWR BH57005 is part of the company’s cordless cleaning system, which uses interchangeable lithium-ion batteries in nine products, including this model, a stick vacuum, and other floor-cleaning appliances. This handheld aces our bare-floor cleaning test. And it does well in other key cleaning tests, including cleaning carpet, removing pet hair, and getting grit from the edges along walls. A crevice tool gives you a longer reach.

    Why it’s a good deal: The price for this model has fallen rapidly in the last few weeks, making this the best price we’ve ever seen.

    If you don’t need a full cookware set but could use a new nonstick pan or two, you can get the 10-inch GreenPan Padova Reserve frying pan (along with an 8-inch version). And like the cookware set listed above, the GreenPan tops our list of nonstick cookware. Eggs easily slide out of the pan one after another, leaving nothing behind and earning a stellar score on the food-release test. Cooking evenness is also top-notch. The handle stays cool to the touch and is sturdy. While the nonstick ceramic coating does well in our durability tests, some other skillets fare better.

    Why it’s a good deal: You’re paying only a little over $45 per pan if you get this set on sale.

    Phomemo M110 Label Maker

    The Phomemo M110 is the bigger, bulkier version of the Phomemo D30, which we also tested and liked. The M110 offers a bit more flexibility with the size of the label you’re creating. It uses the same app as well, and has a wide variety of fonts, styles, and images, with quick creation and easy label cutting. Its size, compared with the smaller Phomemo, makes it a bit less portable, and its alignment isn’t as precise when it comes to cutting the label exactly on the cut line compared with the other label printers. But it’s still a solid option for a durable label printer. 

    Why it’s a good deal: The on-page coupon takes a good chunk off the list price for this versatile label maker.

    Ekster Senate Cardholder

    The Ekster Senate Cardholder features a design that keeps that pop-up switch level with the aluminum card holder. It includes a cash strap and single card holder with the company’s logo emblazoned on the front, and you can keep a card on the outside, such as a Metro card, for tap-to-go. The company includes an extra strap without a card holder, to slim things down even further, inside a very beautiful box.

    Why it’s a good deal: This is only $4 more than the previous low price.
