More: The 25 things our readers were most obsessed with in August
1. Under $25: The best affordable Bluetooth speaker
You never realize how handy a Bluetooth speaker can be until you own one. They give you the ability to listen to music (or podcasts or audiobooks) anywhere you want instantly, but they can get pretty pricey if you want quality sound and battery life. This speaker is our favorite budget Bluetooth speaker because it has a 24-hour battery life, solid sound quality, and easy-to-use buttons. You can get it now for a little over $5 off, and if you’ve got a party in the works, it really is an unbeatable deal.

2. Best price: This smart temperature controlled travel mug
You know how good it feels to sip your coffee at the perfect temperature? What if every sip could be that—no more burned tongue or sad, cold sips at the end. You can have that with the Ember travel mug, which is currently on sale for its lowest price ever. Ember mugs keep your drink warm, and there’s even an app that lets you set the exact temp you want as well as a touchscreen control right on the travel mug itself.
When our own Courtney Campbell tested this travel mug, she really loved that her tea never got cold, but wished the battery life was longer so she could use it for more than her commute. But don’t worry, you can buy a second charging station to keep at work, if you want.

3. Save $50: The best smart sprinkler system
Sure, it might seem odd to buy a sprinkler system right before winter, but this sale makes it the perfect time to start prepping for spring. Smart sprinklers let you schedule watering for your plants and even use weather predictions to adjust your schedule for optimal plant care.
The Rachio Smart Sprinkler Controller is the best one we’ve ever tested, and right now, the previous-gen. model (Rachio 2) with eight zones is only $102.39, down nearly $50 from its usual $149 price. Considering the Rachio 3 (current gen) goes for $200, this is an especially amazing deal. And until now, the best price was $120, so you’re getting this for the absolute lowest it’s ever been. You can install it now or wait until the spring.

4. Under $200: The best Airpods (with the wireless charging case)
Airpods are among the best true wireless earbuds you can get, especially if you’re an iOS devotee, and right now you can get the latest model with the wireless charging case for $169.99, nearly $30 off the full price and matching the lowest price they’ve ever been. If you’ve already got a wireless charger for your phone, this deal is a no-brainer.
However, if you don’t care about wireless charging and would prefer to save even more, you can get the baseline pair for $145 on Amazon right now as well, a $15 discount from their full price and also the best price we’ve seen.
Get the Apple Airpods (current gen.) with Wireless Charging Case for $169.99 (Save $29.01)
5. Under $30: The best food storage option
Leftovers are great, but storing them can be a hassle. If you’re sick of scrambling to find a clean Talenti cup or old takeout container you’ve reused too many times, maybe it’s time to pick up some sturdy containers that will last. These ones from Pyrex are our favorite food storage containers, as they outperformed other popular options in our tests. Right now, they’re only $30, a modest $5 discount, but saving anything on something you need is always preferable.
