1. One of the most popular robot vacuums on sale for the first time
OK so, the Eufy RoboVac 11+ is one of the most popular robot vacuums among our readers. It didn't perform as well as its predecessor in our tests (but still worked well), but Eufy just upgraded it to have better suction and an upgraded bumper that may well solve the few issues we had with it. The best part is that this second-gen. robot vacuum is discounted 28% from its original $250 to just $180.
2. The best affordable hair dryer for even less
It doesn't matter what your hair type is—if you have a crappy hair dryer, it's going to take you more time for a less desirable result than if you used a better dryer. We recently tested a bunch of popular models, including high-end $200+ options, to find the best hair dryers. This Revlon model outpaced, or at least kept up with, almost all of them, earning our Best Value award. At $18, it's a bargain for the quality blow-out you can get. Right now, it's only $15, less than $1 more than the lowest price we've ever seen.
3. A popular Bluetooth speaker for 26% off
Anker's SoundCore Bluetooth speaker is a best seller, partly because it lasts up to 24 hours on a single charge. It's also slim and discreet, so it's super easy to toss in a backpack and bring along on any adventure, but boasts rich enough sound you'll think it must be larger than it is. Typically, this model costs $30, but you can get it for just $22 right now.
4. My favorite mini fridge for the lowest price in over a year
We've tested a number of mini fridges to find the best, and this Danby Beverage Center impressed us. While It didn't win any awards against the competition, I have one in my home, and I love it. It's so quiet I have to actively listen to hear it running, it fits up to 120 cans, and the full-glass door (and cool blue lighting) makes it easy to see your inventory at a glance. This stainless steel fridge usually costs around $200, making it one of the least expensive models we've tested. Right now, however, it's only $176. We haven't seen it drop this low since January of last year.
5. The most popular smart sprinkler on sale in time for spring
If you're looking forward to the spring thaw so you can start tending your garden and mowing your lawn, you might be interested in this popular smart sprinkler system. Not only does it allow you to create a schedule, but it monitors your local weather and makes adjustments when there's rain and as the seasons change. This not only keeps your lawn and garden perfectly hydrated but also saves you money on your water bill. If you're not sure what the ideal schedule is, you can input different details about your local environment, the plants you've got, the soil type, and other factors to determine the most ideal schedule.
